6:01 am
♪ ♪ maria: big show this morning, joining the conversation fox business dagen mcdowell, the host of the secrets of wealthy women podcast verónica is here and entrepreneur kevin oleary. do you want to take money to the sidelines until a deal is done? >> i come to the conclusion the market won't care because what's really occurring here is we have back tax, value-added tax on chinese goods and they have been absorbed quite efficiently in the u.s. economy, every other g7 has a back tax, we have one just on china. i don't care if they continue to ratchet up the tariffs because i think it's the right way to get
6:02 am
a deal done. maria: you're in on this. >> people were expecting recession or some sort of recession in 2020, not hearing that nearly as much anymore. maria: absolutely. >> what's predicated on that is there's a trade deal, we will see a pullback in market in 2020. dagen: market has told you that the recession risk has fallen because the yield curve is no longer inverted and the 10-year yield on the treasury and that's shorter-term rates are longer than longer-term rates; that's in large part because of what the federal reserve has done, cut rates 3 times in years, that's what's giving and i've said this repeated; that is what is giving the markets a lift here and it's certainly helping consumers and we are still waiting to see the last rate cut
6:03 am
trickle in the economy, it'll take months. again, you get balance moving into next year. >> even if tariffs come in on december 15th? >> but big story, of course, top story impeachment inquiry. did you watch the hearings yesterday, the house judiciary committee hearing holding a hearing on whether or not president trump should be impeached. >> welcomed foreign interference and in both cases he got caught. if you impeach a president, if you make a high crime and misdemeanor, it is abusive of power, it's your abuse of power, you are doing precisely what you're doing the president for doing. >> let me be clear that on its own soliciting the leader of a
6:04 am
foreign government in order to announce investigations of political rivals and perform those investigations would constitute a high crime and misdemeanor. >> what a disgrace to this committee to have committee of impeachment simply take from other entities and rubber stamp. maria: it was pretty extraordinary actually, one of the most controversial moments when pamela karland mentioned barron, watch. >> one example between him and the king, the constitution says there can be no title of nobility, the president can name his son barron, he can't make him a barron. maria: this lead to response from first lady melania trump. a minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics, pamela, you should be ashamed of very angry and obviously public pandering and
6:05 am
using a child to do it. karland apologized for her remarks. >> i want to apologize for what i said about the president's son, i wish the president would apologize obviously for the things that he's done that's wrong but i do regret having said that. [laughter] maria: i watched it live and i was stunned, they parade in the 3 liberal hack dems obviously trump haters and basically you've got hours of them backing up the democrats narrative against president trump, what was your reaction. dagen: admitted that he didn't vote for president trump. pam garland not sitting in the supreme court, was auditioning for a job at msnbc, there's a
6:06 am
video that surfaced request she once crossed the street to avoid walking across trump hotel in washington, d.c., american constitution society panel she sat back in 2017. i watched it and then she -- the moderator jokingly asked if she stayed tat trump hotel. she said, no. so again it's not what you're saying, it's the way that you say it. that's something that i was taught working on television for almost two decades that you can, again, you have to be careful of how you present this information and her tone basically told the people watching that you -- that she's bias. deeply bias. maria: deeply bias, it screamed out at you throughout the hearing yesterday but i also have to call out jerry nadler because in his whole narrative hi misspoke and he was misleading, she said president trump welcomed a foreign
6:07 am
interference in the 2016 election, not true, we just came off of 3 years of massive hysteria over potential collusion between trump and russia, we spent $40 million on the mueller report, had a mueller hearing, only to learn there was no collusion. there was no welcoming foreign interference by president trump, in fact, the person who did welcome interference from foreigners is hillary clinton because she paid for the dossier which was used to wiretap american citizens, so, you know, jerry nadler needs to be called out for misleading and inaccuracies. >> people are getting distracted by other things. it's wasted. if you think about the political value of this, it's not going to have much merit when the election comes, even if he doesn't get impeached, doesn't matter, it's all about soundbites, people are trying to get their time in front of the camera saying outrageous things
6:08 am
about kids, i tried to watch, maria, it's boring. maria: they probably practiced the one-liners like the baron comment. how does it help americans in general, you got usmca, prescription drug bill, you have infrastructure plan, you have health care all the stuff left on the -- >> that would be valuable. maria: well, supposed to come to the floor in the next 2 weeks, we will see if nancy pelosi pulls it out, dagen. dagen: she's throwing up more road blocks in terms of that, we will get to that later, do i want to point out that yesterday it's pretty clear that the democrats because they brought up multiple episodes in the personal counsel robert mueller's report and they could beyond ukraine to the
6:09 am
obstruction of justice in the articles of impeachment, i said good luck with that 31 -- good luck getting reelected if your -- you're a democrat who won in trump districts, the republicans only need to flip 19 seats to take back the house next year. maria: looks like that's where this is going in my opinion, meanwhile hillary clinton speaking out again, former presidential candidate sat down with howard stern openly the night she conceded to president trump and sat in inauguration. >> i called him that terrible, look, donald, i want you to be a good president, i will do whatever i can to help you. so, you know -- >> was he a sore -- >> he was so shocked. >> she was was shocked.
6:10 am
more shocked than me, i think. go ahead, get out there, you put on the best face possible. bill and i are sitting with george and laura bush and then he started on that speech which was so bizarre and then that carnage in the street and dystopian vision and i was sitting like, wow, george w. bush says to me well that was some weird shit. [laughter] maria: some people are saying that this people is a sign that she's still mulling 2020. >> entertaining during the election she might have won because she was -- that was the problem. maria: curse words, yes. dagen: she was frank and direct and funny and real in the howard stern video and a lot goes to the credit of howard stern who
6:11 am
really the best interviewer in media. morgan writes in the new york post says the very thing, hillary clinton drops biggest hint that she's mulling a 2020 presidential run but again he covered a lot of topics that -- she cracked jokes. i thought i come on and call some more. it seemed to me watching as much as this interview as i got to watch that she gets bad advice from handlers, you know what, the more you try to be likable the less real that you seem and karl rove has column, get ready for contested convention that you could have the super delegates maybe deciding who the presidential nominee is, people keep throwing out michelle obama's name. keep an eye on hillary clinton. maria: you still she will enter the race, do you think there's a chance? dagen: listen to the callers who
6:12 am
called and i'm a conservative, i've always hated hillary, the interview changed my mind, i had no idea how cool she was, i saw the human side of hillary, she's stiller, listening to her now i think she should run again, those were some of the comments. maria: that's what you said. >> she should have been that real last -- she will not be part of this election cycle. maria: a lot to cover this morning, we are looking at quick break and then game-changer, billionaire steve collin could switch up status with the new york mets as they team up on streaming deal. responding after massive online backlash over holiday ad, we will tell you back in a minute.

6:17 am
the team, ultimate goal to provide service, maria, on subscription basis. that's your baseball news for me this morning. [laughter] maria: i saw that the nba ratings are down after their response to china which was also interesting, in terms of the amazon situation, as they are waiting for this, some of the technology companies they want that market share in terms of the rights for sports, everybody wants live sports, i think you will see more of it. >> of course, they have the capital to make deals who networks feel -- maria: live sports is probably the highest, most highiest --
6:18 am
high give the circumstance that network does, i mean, there's that as well, i don't know if you're going to get the same kind of umpf online. dagen: you will. maria: quick break, standing still in paris, live look at mass transit strike in france, it starred over pensions, futures pointing to big gain at the start of trading, ongoing trade optimism, we are breaking it all down, 118 points on the dow, back in a minute.

6:20 am
6:21 am
6:22 am
maria: welcome back, china trade negotiations pushing ahead, washington and beijing officials are in, quote, close contact, tariffs must be reduced to move forward with the deal, tension between two governments arising with the senate aim to go quickly approve a bill which punishes china of uyghurs muslims, we have been telling you about this over a year. joining us right now pentagon staffer, zach cooper, good to have you on the program this morning, we have been wait to go see what kind of retaliation china would make to these bills and the initial retaliation from china on that hong kong
6:23 am
protesting bill wasn't so bad, they said you can't use our ports in hong kong, there are a loft ports for the united states to port ships in, what kind of retaliation would you expect from this bill should this become into law as well against the uyghur action? >> they tried not to go after u.s. government, what they've done is go after think tanks into the united states, going after freedom house, human rights watch, all the think tanks that have been speaking about human rights abuse in hong kong and i think that's an effort to try and put some pressure on the think tanks but avoid putting any pressure on the administration while they're in the middle of the trade talks. maria: seems to me that if the united states will start including china's behavior in terms of the way it treats its people, they're going to be in for a long and tough fight because this is a culture and doesn't look like china will stop tracking citizens any timezone or reversing course on
6:24 am
the uyghurs by the way. >> they don't want anyone to messing around in china's own business, what they are doing is interference in domestic affairs, they are trying to interfere in our laws and interfering in what private americans are citizens, we see that with the nba and now with private think tanks. >> let me ask you a question from a perspective of an investor, do you think it has or makes a lot of sense to get in country's internal mandates, how they run their business or get a trade deal done frankly, i don't know why we are telling the chinese thousand reeducate people or not or get involved in hong kong, i'd rather just get a trade deal and i think this is actually hurting our ability to close one quickly. what do you think?
6:25 am
>> this is something that we have to speak out on, we have to stand up for american values, that's one thing that has made the united states an important role, have an important role around the world and so i think we've got to stand up for these people because if we don't will, no one else will. dagen: it is not hard to take a stance on concentration camps. >> the truth is different jurisdictions have different policy and it's none of our business. dagen: world war ii wasn't our business? >> i'm telling you if they very history of doing to their people it's not a good thing but distraction of the ultimate goal of bringing -- dagen: your conditions of doing business with us and treating people well. >> you want to help those people get an economy towards democracy, that's how you help them. dagen: the communist government
6:26 am
-- >> i disagree. dagen: that's really clear. >> a trade deal will help those people. maria: the american people have to understand china's behavior and that's also part of this, america is basically educating the world to china's behavior and how it treats its people. >> it's true. maria: human right abuses, are you comfortable with china stealing with intellectual property. >> i've been living -- maria: do you want that covered in trade deal or you want market access? >> 10 years i didn't care because -- maria: they don't want the enforcement in the deal, you still want that in the deal? >> you can't tell a government how to control people and get a trade deal at the same time, it'll never happen. maria: do you want enforcement in the deal, they don't want enforcement? >> have to have it. maria: okay. hauwei is fighting back against
6:27 am
fcc equipment, chinese telecom giant claiming that the rule violates due process rightsly labeling as national security threat, we know that there are back doors in hauwei product that is the data goes back to chinese government, how worried are you about national security issues? >> i think it's very clear that the united states government has the ability to restrict this type of activity on national security grounds, but i also find it hilarious that a chinese company is complaining that the united states is trying to restrict chinese technology company operations in the united states, what about facebook in china, what about google, what about twitter, there's no legal recourse for them to try to do something in beijing to force them to allow them to operate. so, you know, hauwei wants to have its cake and eat it too. maria: that's true, they sure do and the u.s. is onto them. in lieu of your remarks on the uyghurs, what about hong kong,
6:28 am
should the u.s. fight back and support protestors? >> you can't make the whole world to be just like us, that doesn't work, the cost over last 50 years has cost the economy trillions of dollars, that's why trump is against, finally an -- maria: hold our nose and do a deal even of the treatment of the uyghurs? >> it's different now because the whole world watches. dagen: except in china. [laughter] >> my point -- maria: try google when you're in beijing, not going to happen. >> total distraction saying we will not go forward on trade deal because we are doing something in province, that makes no sense to me, that's a mistake. maria: zach, final word. >> at the end of the day my view is just we have american values, there are things we care about, democracy is one of them, human rights is one of them and if we don't speak about the issues no one else will.
6:29 am
maria: that's true, zach, good to see you, zach cooper, 2020 candidates on offense, joe biden reveals trillion dollar tax plan as elizabeth warren responds to ceo shake-up at alphabet, that's coming up, pelaton's apology, watch this. >> nervous but excited. maria: what a reaction, the company responds after the internet exploded over new holiday ad, back in a minute.

6:35 am
12.3 million-barrels a day produced which was unheard of just a few years ago, that's driven by technology and american ingenuity in many ways, floated to the american people and on interior land some of the lands we managed actually we do develop energy and on those lands we have essentially doubled our energy revenue since 2016 when the president began to develop a division that said, hey, let's responsibly and safely develop resources and we have done that by modifying business practice, improving the permitting times, improving review processes an actually increasing our safety inspections. maria: the picture of the president with those massive mountain of rules and pages that day when he was cutting the red tape is always in my head because i think part of this is
6:36 am
the deregulation effort, cutting the rules enabled permitting process to go much faster, isn't that right? >> that's right, what we have been able to do looking at things in different ways, on one side making sure that we have common sense regulations, we want to maintain our safety and maintain our environmental compliance but at the same time do it in a common sense way and we actually looked at our business practices and say how can we do things better, faster and smarter and that's resulted in demonstrable gains and that comes back to taxpayers on one hand but also goes to states, states like new mexico, new mexico received $1.17 billion from the department of interior last year, that money goes for schools, for roads, things that are important in new mexico. maria: most people don't realize where the money goes then as the u.s. becomes more powerful in

terms of drilling, what does it mean for our purchases for international oil, dependent on middle eastern oil? >> well, i think last month was the fist month ever and we have been net exporter for the entire month and its transformed foreign policy, has transformed our way we think about the world but it's primarily transformed workers opportunities to make money in communities where i'm from. maria: battle of offshore drilling, florida senator marco rubio blocking president trump's pick, opposing the pick because he says the agency's plan to expand offshore drilling, what's your reaction to this, secretary, this is again not in my backyard? >> well, we are working with senator rubio and we will work through that, lots of folks have different ideas, for example, green new deal, they want to stop all energy production on --
6:38 am
on federal lands across the board and i say to them, call the governor of new mexico and ask her what she thinks and she'll tell you, she's a democrat, she will say please exempt my state from your crazy green new deal. maria: also excredibly expensive, $40 trillion in terms to have green new deal, do people understand the implications of something like that and what do you say to marco rubio, you say you will work with him, what's the pushback on his work? >> we will work through with the senator and reach some common sense solution that works for us. at the end of the day for the american people here is my belief, i believe the president has an incredible faith in the common sense of the american people and the american people get it, american people say, hey, we can develop energy responsibly and the same time be good stewards for the environment, they understand that, they believe jobs are
6:39 am
important and they -- they have an incredible wisdom and the president believes in their wisdom. maria: how do you do that in terms of safeguarding the environment? >> well, look we had our inspections are up 21% from where they were in 2016, we are rigorous in our we are -- if it doesn't muster it won't pass my desk. maria: trouble on the tracks in france, cheryl. cheryl: public transportation is shut down in protest to president macron's changes, airlines to reduce the number of flights, thousands of police throughout paris, hundreds of demonstrations planned in that city. and the engineer in charge of boeing's response of 737 max crisis is retiring, chief engineer john hamilton informed boeing ceo of decision to step down yesterday. testified before congress last

7:02 am
a lot of talk about china once again boosting markets. we also have a firmer tone because the economy is pretty good in the u.s. we've got the job numbers out tomorrow. what are you expecting in. >> i'm expecting steady as she goes. i've got a pretty good index of what's occurring with small private companies, i've got 50 of them across every state. we have never had a better quarter, ever. feels like the '60s again, maria. it feels so amazing if you're at a consumer level. most of these companies are consumer goods and services. they are on fire. the economy's on fire. maria: the adp numbers yesterday were weaker than expected. were supposed to be 140,000 jobs added to th the economy, it was. >> the small businesses are doing very well. the issues around the s&p 500, 26% of sales are you abroad. they've got issues. they've got tariff stuff. my little companies don't have those issues. maria: those are the job
7:03 am
creators in the country. >> yes, they are, they're making money. maria: join us tomorrow for 8:00 a.m. eastern when we get the jobs numbers out. we love jobs friday. all that coming up. our the top story this hour, the impeachment inquiry, the house judiciary committee holding a hearing yesterday questioning constitutional collars on whether the president shut -- scholars on whether the president should be impeached. >> if we cannot impeach a president who abuses his power for personal advantage, we no longer live in a democracy. we live in a monarchy or duck day toreship. >> if -- dictatorship. >> if you impeach a president, if you make a high cream and misdemeanor out of going to the courts, it's an because o an ab. >> we're aware the next election is looming. we can't wait for the election to address the present crisis. the integrity of the election is
7:04 am
one of the very things at stake. >> they want to do it before the end of the year. why? because the chairman said it a second ago, we're scared of the elections next year. we're scared of the elections, that we'll lose again so we've got to do it now. the clock and the calendar are driving impeachment, not the facts. maria: that was georgia congressman, doug collins. the congressman joins me right now. it's always a pleasure to see you. thanks very much for being here. >> good morning, maria. maria: i watched the whole thing yesterday. i was stunned, congressman. your reaction to what took place in that room yesterday. >> well, maria, it was another day, that just showed the disconnect of the obsession with impeachment is disconnected with the facts and what's going on. what we heard yesterday was three partisan professors who came in there to say the president should be impeached and they were making up facts. i want to bring up something,
7:05 am
you know the reason that yesterday was such a failure for the democrats, was what he said about small businesses, the folks that are out there doing their jobs are who donald trump is fighting for. they're not listening to high minded law professors who are telling them facts from the middle i thin english era. maria: that's why you've got things like usmca hanging in the balance and a prescription drug bill that will not see the light of day and infrastructure plan that won't see the light of day. let me ask you before i get back to the inquiry, do you expect usmca to come to the house in the next two weeks? >> we're hoping so. i mean, at a certain point i'll i'm more mi'm -- i'll implore my colleagues to do something for the american people.
7:06 am
she is simply being petty by not bringing it to the floor. she's holding it out as a trinket for the moderates to say we'll do it eventually but let me do the impeachment first. maria: i think that it's worth calling out the fact that they misled the public. he said the president welcomed foreign interference into the election in 2016. and he said he wants to do it again in the 2020 election. this is categorically fall fals. we came off of a three year period where the country was in craziness over the collusion between trump and the russians which never happened and we spent $40 million on a mueller report for mueller to tell us there was no collusion. what exactly is jerry nadler talking about? why is he misleading the public in. >>public?>> that's a tough ques.
7:07 am
all i know, he wants to impeach the president because he said he wanted to do. we're seeing this play out on multiple fronts. adam schiff a couple days ago said well, if this doesn't work out we'll continue to investigate, investigate, investigate this president, they hate him so badly they'll continue to investigate. jerry nadler has the ball in his court. they have been tasked with impeaching the president so they can label him as an impeached president. they know it's going nowhere in the senate. they h know people are getting disgusted by it. he's trying to scare people into saying if we don't do something president trump is collude with all these countries to ruin the elections. when we start attacking the part of our election where peel peope question their vote that is an attack at the core of the democracy.
7:08 am
jerry nadler and the democrats need to stop. maria: we know it did take place in the 2016 election with people in the fbi and cia who did interfere in the election by putting their finger on the scale. we're about to get the ig report on monday. connect the dots for us. do had they not recognize or do they not want to look at the real wrong-doing. >> one of the most amazing statements out of the chairman's mouth was the discussion of the mueller report. they're trying to bring the mueller report back into the process. that was a complete failure l. what he's trying to bring back in is the fact of russian interference. he talked about it yesterday. he said the american people heard the report from mr. mueller about what happened. the problem is the judiciary committee must not be the american people. we had no hearings to discuss what robert mueller said about foreign interference. we passed small election bills that did nothing except for take over elections. for the chairman to say that is being disingenuous to the
7:09 am
american people. maria: there was a lot of disingenuous commentary yesterday from jerry nadler. nancy pelosi is expected to make an announcement this morning on impeachment. what do you anticipate is coming from nancy pelosi this morning? >> my hope would be, but this is fantasy, that she would get up and say you know, we don't have anything, we quit. that's not going to happen. we'll see. either they're going to speed up the time line, i said yesterday it was about a clock and a calendar, maybe they'll speed the time line up. yesterday was an unmitigated disaster. it's not resonating with the american people. maybe they'll say we'll expand this and go into the next year. she's in a bad spot. they lied to the american people long enough. it's time the to end this national nightmare and let the president get back to being the president, let the congress get back to being congress. maria: your judiciary commit tickcommittee, what happens thet of the week? >> you i don't know. i don't think the chairman knows
7:10 am
either. at the end of the hearing yesterday i asked what is next and when do we get our minority hearing day which we'll be pushing for and he had no answers. he walked off. at this point we're waiting to hear. i guess when he finds out what they tell him, he'll tell us. maria: we know the inspector general, michael horowitz is going to testify in lindsey graham's committee, expected to release the ig report monday, december 9th. and john durhams is saying he cannot provide evidence to support a theory that the russia case was a setup. what's going on here? this is according to the washington post, congressman. i'm seeing a lot of leaks about the upcoming ig report. who is leaking and should we be listening to what's in the papers about the ig report which is not out until monday? >> no, i think you need to wait until the ig report comes out. there are folks who are leaking who have seen it. they're trying to cover their own backsides. we talked about this. they're giving a grand picture of what may be damning evidence
7:11 am
next week. on top of this craziness in the house, you'll now have the horowitz report, starting to connect the dots of the corrupt kabal moving forward. they had limited jurisdiction. mr. durham has unlimited when he can go to the grand jury and other things. the american people need to keep their eyes on this. maria:s there's a new piece called schiff's surveillance state, they write this. mr. schiff's secret plunge into meta data is one more example of the partisan score settling that motivates this impeachment exercise in the cause of impeaching donald trump, anything goes. congressman, what do you he know about adam schiff spying on colleagues? >> we're just finding that out. that was one of the revelations of the schiff report. look, i'm beginning believe that
7:12 am
schiff doesn't care who he burns in the process. to have it come out in the report is a surprise. it makes me question, as members of the judiciary committee, he's supposed to turn over all underlying evidence. he's not done so yet. adam schiff is lying to the american people. i need all of the information sent to the chairman and myself if we're going to do the impeachment inquiry, he needs to give us the information we need and go forward so we can evaluate it. it will shine a light on his investigation as well. he said i want the whistleblower to testify and then oh, my god, i can't do that because my staff and i had contact with the whistleblower and we don't want that to happen. he is nothing but a pathologically telling stories to the american people. he has trouble with the truth, he can't even spell it. this shows the problem that we have. what else is he hiding? he put this in a report. what else is he hiding? give us the information. you're not being fair to the american people. maria: i keep saying you guys are not under oath. he can say whatever he wants.
7:13 am
he can tell the american people we want to know who the whistleblower is, we would like to meet with the whistleblower and lie that his staff has not met him and later we find out the staff did meet with the whistleblower and he can get away with had that because he's not under oath, not punishable for per jury. will you be success to get him to testify under oath. that's going to be a reach, don't you thinker in do you think that could happen. >> we have schiff under oath petitions, people can find those online. i think at the end of the day, we're going to take the high road. i believe in being truthful to the american people. they can come to doug collins and i'll be truthful to them. adam schiff has to answer for his own untruthfulness and the american people are starting to see through it. those are the contrasts you make. we had a reporter ask me, aren't you worried about the facts. we're not. when we deal with the truth, the truth always wins and this president did nothing. maria: good to see you this morning. thanks so much. >> good to see you, take care. maria: coming up, takata under

maria: welcome back. so, the free market possibly not so free after all. american business is dominated by oligopolies. the consumer is left with fewer choices and higher costs. that's according to my next guest. he says society maintains an illusion that markets in the united states are free. joining us now, thomas fhilipon.
7:23 am
tell us about that, why can isn't it so free in your view? >> i think it used to be free. 20 years ago, the united states had the most competitive market in the world. you looked around, and prices were lower in the u.s. than anywhere in the developed world. so people coming to the u.s. would say my god, computers are cheap here or flying is cheap here or i can get a cell phone cheap and all of these facts which were true 20 years ago are not true today. today, on average, to get broad band internet at home the average american household pays $68 per month. the average french household pays 31. in germany, 35. the u.k., 37. literally half the price. same thing with cell phones. maria: what happened? >> so what happened is you had a markets that used to be competitive became more and more concentrated to the point that firms don't need to lower their prices anymore. >> how much of that is
7:24 am
subsidized. the french market for example, $36 a month for high speed internet, you pay personal taxes in france that are extremely high and i'm going to make the assumption that the government's subsidizing the infrastructure buildout of internet. >> they the french case is easy to follow because it happened in two years. like in 2011, up to 2011, th wed three companies that charged high prices. a fourth guy wanted to enter and they were asking for a license and they wanted to keep them out of the market. they lost in 2011. they got the license and entered and cut the price by half compared to the existing companies and we went to being 25% cheaper than the u.s. it had to do with the free market. >> good old competition. >> the irony, i'm sure you're
7:25 am
aware, the reason we did that in france and europe more generally because we looked at the u.s. 20 years ago to get our inspiration for how a free market should look like. that's the irony. >> what do you propose the u.s. does? >> needs to do two things. you need to be the top guy at the top of the market, you need to be stronger with anti-trust and market dominance issues for very large firms and at the same time you need to remove a bunch of regulations that make no sense had that prevent you smaller companies from growing. because they have a huge burden of regulation at the federal and state level that makes no sense and over time that prevents the smaller firm from growing and competing with the big guys. maria: this is exactly what the president tried to do with his deregulation policy. dagen: deregulation and also both the left and the right see the concentration of power in the hands of, say, technologies companies, particularly the social media companies and it was very clearly a lack of
7:26 am
anti-trust action in all the acquisitions they were making, where some of these companies will buy up a smaller company, even a facebook, and shut it down. >> it's a tricky issue regarding that. take facebook and amazon and google that the government is bashing every day. every one of my private companies acquires customers using all three of those platforms and couldn't do business globally without them. you need giant infrastructure to provide it. bashing those companies and splitting those up is a bad idea if you're trying to create jobs. i don't want to see that happen. maria: are you not worried about the powerful position these companies are in. >> in the '80s ibm was the largest market cap on earth. they are a nothing burger today. the market takes care of inefficiency. if you're not well managed you get wiped out. >> that's the key difference. in the '80s it's true that you had -- there was at&t and ibm and before that there was other
7:27 am
companies and before that there were other companies. if you look at the market, we used to be tougher with the big guys. i think this is something that needs to come back and to your point, though, the first thing you notice when you look at the big techses is that google, amazon and facebook are not the same. they are very different. what you do with them is very different. amazon is a company that has a lot of employees, does a lot of it investment. if you look at the number, they pushed productivity growth up. it's much less for google and facebook. dagen: which industries do you think are most ripe for greater regulation? i don't want to talk about breakups. i look at the airlines where it shouldn't cost over $1,000 to fly round-trip from charlottes, -- charlottesville to new york. >> we need bipartisan support for anti-trust.
7:28 am
it used to be fairly bipartisan. that's the only way to have efficient anti-trust. you have to be above the big techses. that's the main reason to do something about the big techs today. if you want to put money back in the consumer's pocket, to increase the standard of living, you need to do something about the big ticket items and that's going to be transportation. prices are much higher. telecoms, i'm sorry, isps at home, cell phone services, why are you paying $100 is the average household expense on cell phones. it's half of that be in other developed nations, it's half in korea, japan, the u.k., germany. so for this, you also need to do something about these industries. but that's going to be a bit less bipartisan. maria: that's a very good point. great to have you this morning. great to have you. biden's tax increase, the 2020

7:33 am
dow industrials up 101, s&p up 10, nasdaq higher by 35. trade opt p mitc optimism helpea three day losing streak yesterday. it was a good rally at the close, in the triple digits for the dow. in europe we have more momentum, a mixed picture. there were new signs of an economic slowdown in germany, october manufacturing orders fell 0.4% month over month. there was a steeper drop than expected. the cac is up 41. look at the dax in germany, despite the weaker than expected economic data, up 11 points. renewed u.s.-china trade hopes drove markets overnight in asia as well. the nikkei and shanghai composite up three quarters of a percent. japan announced a $121 billion stimulus package overnight including investments in new technology and upgrading of infrastructure. all those stories coming up this thursday morning. our top story this half hour, joe biden's tax plan, he is out with it. the former vice president and 2020 hopeful unveiled a tax proposal aimed at a raising 3
7:34 am
and a quarter trillion dollars, including raising the corporate tax rate 28%, the individual tax rate to 39.6% and it includes doubling a tax on offshore corporate income to 21%. biden takes aim at capital gains for those making more than $1 million a year. we've got all the details on joe biden's tax proposeals, we want to compare it to others. first off, dagen, what's your reaction. dagen: nearly 1 trillion in new corporate taxes on wednesday, why do you thinker the economy s in such great shape it's because of the permanent tax cut that was signed into law by president trump. one of the taxes goes after amazon's business actually helps lower consumer prices and make other businesses more competitive. so you're going to go after a company like it or not that is benefiting the american people. makes zero sense. maria: taking the corporate rate up to 28%.
7:35 am
look at what happened when the corporate rate moved from 35 a to 21%. you saw unleashing of investment by companies. >> for biden this is the right move. he's trying to get the nomination. you've got to tax the rich. you've got to nail the corporations. you have to do this to be competitive within all the competition he's got with other candidates. he's doing the right thing and then afterwards he goes back to the center. if i were him, i'd raise corporate tax rates to 80%. maria: oh, come on. give me a break. >> you have to -- maria: talk about an economy killer. >> he'll never do that. he has to get nominated first. he's letting others do the fair i testify on taxing the rich. maria: the highest earners already pay the majority of the tax and half of the population, 50% pay no tax. >> they're already getting slammed. so to kevin's point, this is the way to compete with warren, get your name out there. i would like at some point someone to address the spending side of the equation. to we're going to keep raising
7:36 am
taxes. what about the spending. maria: you're talking about entitlement, social security, medicare, medicaid. >>s what's the money for? we're just going to keep spending. what point does it catch up with us. >> have you to ask yourself, how does he get more market share right now when people are starting to consider who should lead this party. he's got to be much more visible. warren every day -- maria: cater to the left. >> she's getting a all the air a time with her crazy plans. it's the right thing for her to do. it's smart. dagen: to kevin's point, this is almost conservative, this joe biden proposal, compared to elizabeth warren and bernie sanders and even pete buttigieg, the mayor. biden's -- these are new tax increases that we're talking about. he already was proposing raising the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21. pete buttigieg wants to take corporate taxes back to 35% and then elizabeth warren and bernie sanders both have proposed
7:37 am
wealth confiscation taxes. again, we're going to figure out how to tax your art and land and a whatever store of wealth and value that you might have every year. maria: it's not just confiscation coming from elizabeth warren. she wants to confiscate your money. she's calling on regulators to ban so-called mega mergers. she put forward anti-trust legislation that would crack down on monopolies, she says, ban non-compete clauses. >> she gets it. that is great stuff for the base. when you talk about -- maria: great stuff for the progressives. >> she's doing the right thing in terms of getting market share. maria: you're being tak faceti. >> stage one, win nomination, stage two, move back to the center so you can get elected. maria: are you lying now or were you lying then? >> everybody lies if you're a politician.
7:38 am
are you kidding. you go to school for that. >> this does nothing for growth if you keep raising taxes. >> a politician that lies? say it ain't so. you must be kidding. dagen: she's having a real hard time, one of the reasons she's fallen in the polls, trying to pivot back to the middle away from her medicare for all proposal. not only could she not admit middle class would pay higher taxes to pay for it. she raised her hand on the first debate stage and saying i'm taking health insurance away from 180 million people. she's trying to say you'll get a he reprieve. you get to keep your private health insurance for a couple more years to paraphrase kimberly extrakimberly strassel. maria: what happened to bernie. hillary clinton calls out bernie sanders for, quote, disappointing her in 2016. this is rich. this is rich. okay. so the presidential -- the former presidential candidate
7:39 am
calls out the vermont senator for not endorsing her quickly enough, claiming bernie, quote, hurt her campaign. take us back to 2016 when they were all in the tank for hillary and they were coming up with all sorts of stuff against bernie. we know what happened in the e-mails. at one point debbies wasserman schultz said let's get it out there he's not religious. they didn't want to be truthful about who bernie sanders was. dagen: and they essentially took over the dnc. the dnc was not working in the interest for all democrats. the dnc was working in the interest of the clinton campaign. because that money was flowing right through the dnc and right into the brooklyn headquarters. >> different ballgame now with super delegates. they don't matter as much anymore. maria: for hillary to call out bernie is so rich to me, it's so incredible, knowing what they did to bernie sanders in 2016. >> she's getting more air time.
7:40 am
maria: maybe she's seriously considering a run. >> i think it's very interesting. i see her every day somewhere. maria: you're right. dagen: she essentially called bernie sanders sexist. he made a comment about -- he used a phrase like all the shouting about guns when they were debating gun control measures, and she turned around and used that against him and essentially called him a sexist for saying that she -- using the word shouting, like women shout, you know. maria: bernie -- dagen: what happened? maria: the guy who said no billionaires should be allowed in america. let's send them all to china. good idea. james bond is back in action. cheryl casone on that story now. cheryl, over to you. cheryl: oh, yeah, maria. the international man of mystery is back. >> name? >> bond. james bond. >> you're not -- >> i missed you. >> he's the most valuable asset

7:43 am
he played jimmy hoffa who at death was 62. jimmy hoffa, assuming he's dead, disappeared when he was 62. you had a man who is 80 playing him in his 40s and 50s. it was absolutely ridiculous. and i'll quote collin quinn, the meemead man, the irishman is superior to good fellows is good fellows cut out the driving and checking into hotels and just left the exciting parts. maria: for some reason i lost any p appetite for any of these mob films anymore and the thuggery. it's just -- i don't know. >> it was incredibly depressing. i couldn't believe the ending. it really brought me down. maria: don't give it away. dagen: hoffa dies. maria: duh.

maria: welcome back. well suited for wall street, college graduates are hungry to work in the financial services sector but the title can come with a stigma. the recruit, captains with ivy league degrees, resumes from women and minorities potentially headed to the bottom of the stack. one startup says it can change that. it is called suited, it uses
7:48 am
artificial intelligence to screen a more d diverse pool of candidates. joining us now is the ceo, matt spencer. tell us how you find a broader, deeper set of talent coming from universities that is much more diverse. >> sure. well, suited is an artificial intelligence driven recruiting platform that opens access to early career job opportunities in the financial and profession fall services sector to a wider range of candidates and it enables firms to consider those candidates more efficiently. the way we do that is by leveraging tools like artificial intelligence to broaden the candidate pool, help firms identify talent, not just the same places they've always gone but to a much wider range of campuses and universities which is really the core focus of our platform today. >> these are people coming into the job pool? i was going to ask you where you get your data.
7:49 am
our companies use linkedin. they have hundreds and hundreds and thousands of potential candidates. can you work with that data, further define the linkedin platform? >> when you look at a tool like linkedin p it is based on historical job experience which college graduates coming into the workforce don't have. so the data and information that you would have in a tool like linkedin isn't as relevant for those early career job opportunities, people who are coming into the workforce for the first time. >> suited specializes in the you new entry coming into the market. >> today, maker. -- today, that's correct. focused on the college graduates, the undergrad and mba level coming into the workforce. >> remind us of the business case for diversity among wall street firms. why should they care about this. >> when it comes to diversity, aside from it being the right thing to do, diversity has to matter to everybody, in particular senior leaders.
7:50 am
when you think about the benefits of diversity in an organization, when you can bring more diverse perspectives into a company, it helps you avoid things like group think. it can increase innovation. it can help outperform financially homogenous teams and really firms are at their best when the diversity officer spe, helps them move the needle, think about things in different ways. >> are you also able to gather let's call it gender fluidity information about people. maybe i want a very diverse base of employees to understand the market i'm trying to serve. how would you get me that data? >> one of the things, again, when we think about our recruiting platform and where it sits in the recruiting process, it's very much the front end of the process, identifying and early screening to bring applicants into your tall pool so that companies are able to think about their hiring
7:51 am
process, who they bring into the interview is a critical part and the way the process is set up today is really set up to fail in that regard, if you want to bring more diversity into the ecosystem. you're going and creating artificial caps by limiting it and saying we're only going to recruit from certain schools. you've already limited the pool there. maria: for sure. >> as well as a very critical point in the process, which is the point of resume screening, decide who to bring into an better view, the only information firms are working with at that point is information on a re resume. the critical piece is can we bring more information to that critical decision point in as process and help them gain a better understanding of who an individual actually is. maria: makes a lot of sense. matthew, great to have you. thank you so much for joining us. tune in tomorrow, we have all hands on deck for the november job report, special coverage beginning a 8:00 a.m. eastern on "mornings with maria" with jobs numbers coming out for november. uber is expanding its reach, the

i have to believe that speaker pelosi will announce there will be a vote on impeachment i do not know this i have to assume that an announcement of this time from that podium with one camera teleprompter nobody else in room has to be the announcement there is going to be a vote on impeachment by the end of the year. i don't think going to move markets i am watching futures carefully, we have been up 60, 70, 80, 90 points above that as this announcement was revealed. if however, she says maybe we can get usmca voted on, before the end of the year, that i think would be a plus for the market. otherwise, the market doesn't care. what do you think. maria: absolutely, i think she has to talk about usmca. she has got to either answer a question, or refer to it, because if she just comes occupant says we are going to have a vote on impeachment, by year-end, the follow-up question is what about the vote on usmca. my view, she has got to
8:50 am
address usmca. i don't know, you know we will see maybe just in response to a question. i think, any way she addresses usmca market rallies she has to say she is bringing it down for a vote next two weeks she has got to -- >> she has to i am with you maria fun isn't it. >> i will be expecting a big rally on your show i will be watching, "varney & company," there you go. >> stu 10 minutes thanks so much "varney & company" top of the hour 9 a.m. eastern join stuart watching shares utilitied airlines this morning ceo announced an hour ago stepping down taking on a new role gerri willis on the floor with details there good morning to you. >> hey. good morning maria that is right your -- from floor of new york stock exchange scott kirmy taking over ceo, wall street likes it he will stay as executive chairman of the borrowed for a year changes taking place this spring. >> i cane shares, set to fly

twitter saying this, the do nothing democrats had historically bad day yesterday in the house they have no impeachment case are demeaning our country but nothing matters to them they have gone crazy are there i say if you are going to impeach me do it now, fast, so we can have a fair trial in the senate and so that our country can get back to business, we will have schiff bidens pelosi many more testify will vooel for the very first time how cup our system rally is i was elected to clean the swamp that is what i am doing minutes away find out if pelosi is pumping brakes on impeachment for pushing the accelerate. >> thank you. we will come back to you washington when speaker speaks joining us to talk more about that foreign whitewater independent counsel, robert ray good to see you -- >> i think the president naught in tweet saying go to trial we want to have the bidens schiff, pelosi all
8:57 am
testify, basically saying be careful what you wish for. >> look beats me as to what is going to happen with speaker announces what the plan is yesterday impeachment narrative endless string of varying adjustments by democrats party was this is so serious and donald trump represents such a clear predanger to the country we must act immediately we cannot wait for anything else we must rush about this, vote on it, and -- and move it over to the senate for trial. as a result the of a very bad day yesterday did not go well for democrats in response to professor turley from george washington university about fact if you do that congress itself is abusing power i have a feeling that we may hear something today that suggests there may be a pumping of the brakes i would have thought. >> they want to get this done before the american people vote. >> i thought the press conference would be clear and present danger on december 20th, the house of representatives,
8:58 am
the full house will have a vote to impeach the president. if she's calling a press conference, i'm not sure that that's the announcement. maria: yesterday, what did they do? they paraded three liberal academics who are all trump haters down to justify and agree with their narrative. >> if anything, it hurt the impeachment case that the democrats have been trying to build. point to pam karlan and the quip or joke or whatever she made about a minor child. maria: 13 years old. >> that she then gave a faux apology, the kind of apology a child makes when forced by their parents to say i'm sorry for something. if anything, it didn't make the case for impeachment. they talk about obstruction of justice charges based on the mueller report but they are not willing to wait for a court to decide whether white house counsel don mcgahn is going to testify. again, it looks like a rush to judgment and it is pure partisanship. by the way, support among
8:59 am
republicans for impeachment is now in the single -- back down in single digits. >> they tried to resurrect the collusion narrative. we heard that one months ago. let's go back. maria: unbelievable. >> i'm more optimistic. i hope she gives an update on nafta 2.0. that would be great. maria: if her first comment is we will bring a vote on impeachment to the floor, the followup has to be what about the vote on usmca. >> i have been saying all along, we will all be judged at the end of the day, including in elections with regard to the currently serving congress, about whether we acted in the best interest of the country. maria: that's the bottom line. great to have you this morning. thanks very much. we will get to stuart varney early because we are all waiting on nancy pelosi. "varney & company" begins right now. stu, take it away. stuart: good morning to you. good morning, everyone. happening moments from now, speaker pelosi will make an announcement on the impeachment
9:00 am
inquiry. it's supposed to happen at 9:00 sharp. we are a few seconds shy of 9:00. we are waiting to see exactly what speaker pelosi has to say. liz peek with me now. i have to believe, liz, that the speaker has the votes to go forward with an impeachment vote. otherwise, she would not be holding this announcement. >> i don't think she's going to back-pedal from an impeachment vote and it does appear she has the votes. however, i think she can come out now and perhaps try to summarize the case they are trying to make because based on yesterday, they are all over the place. they are even reaching back into the mueller investigation, and revisiting collusion. they are talking obstruction of justice. what is the grounds, what are the grounds for impeachment? that's what americans want to know. what we do know is that the polling is most definitely moving against the democrats, particularly in the swing states where they have to win in order to win the white house in 2020. so if you look at that, you look
