♪. ashley: look at fox square. that's stu's favorite song by the way by cardi b. that's all. i gave that secret away, sorry,
10:01 am
stu. good morning, everybody, it is 10:00 eastern i'm ashley webster, in yes for stuart varney today. let's get straight to your money. the markets a little bit of a turnaround. slightly positive. nasdaq is down but coming back after a down opening. let's look at treasury yield. see where the 10-year stands. up over 3 basis points at 3.54% on the treshtry. look at the price of oil if we can. oil down 1 1/2% at $78.53 per barrel. what about bitcoin. we follow bitcoin in the crypto space. bitcoin is, survey says, up 217 bucks at 23,272 for bitcoin. all right, that is where the markets are. former president trump by the way is going after the governor
10:02 am
of florida, ron desantis and nickly -- nikki haley floating idea of running for president in 2024. >> ron was a good governor. i hear he run, i think that disloyal. go by your heart, if you want to run. she puckly said i would never run against my president. he was a great president. sean duffy joins me now. this is classic donald trump. he still makes me laugh. i don't know, but he does. is this a good tactic? >> so first off, if you're donald trump of course you say these guys are disloyal. he was helpful in elevating both of them, ron desantis to the governorship, nikki haley after she was governor into the, into the u.n. so, yeah i would feel like he feels disloyal. what will be helpful is a raucous republican primary and if you feel like your heart is can tent to run, get in the
10:03 am
race. let your ideas shine. can you stand on the stage with donald trump? can you take the heat coming from donald trump? ron desantis has been a great governor. i don't know his debate performances have been amazing. donald trump a pretty good on the stage. i'm excited as a viewer. i will get my popcorn, ashley. i will watch this happen and may the best man win. ashley: it interesting, isn't it? 2017 we could see 17 nominations. maybe not 17. nikki haley, or ron desantis. nikki haley seems to be heading in the direction. desantis more quiet. you have mike pompeo. you have great potential candidates out there, a strong bench if you like compared to the democrats i believe. do you have any sense, i know that is an impossible question but, who do you like? >> well, let me first say this
10:04 am
anyone who runs in this cycle, there will be more than donald trump. i think you will have two handfuls of races. eight, 10, 12 candidates and they're all going to run, ashley, on donald trump's ideas. they will run on america first. the ideas that were not that popular in the republican party before donald trump. they're going to come and say, listen i'm the policy of donald trump but i'm not donald trump. you can get the look-alike of former president trump or get the former president himself. it is going to be unique to see this thing play out but you know for me, i do listen, i'm a huge fan of president trump, the policies were amazings especially for rural wisconsin. we were doing better in rural wisconsin than any other president. more wages, more opportunity than in recent memory that was great. i think the, the voters will have to decide do i like the policies, do i like the fight? ashley: yeah. >> but do i not like all the back and forth? the media hates president trump.
10:05 am
the left hates them. they lose their mind over president trump and again i think the voters will decide. i'm going to sit back to watch it for a while. again i'm a big fan of the president. ashley: i'm with you. popcorn will be a great spectacle if nothing else. by the way, sean, you have house speaker, you have house speaker kevin mccarthy on your show, "the bottom line" tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern. so much to get into. what is the one thing you really want to get from kevin mccarthy? >> so i was in the house, it is always hard to navigate a majority. kevin mccarthy has what a five, six seat majority? i want to see how it comes together as a republican after a prizing, tough, speaker's race. will they work together? will they compromise of the very conservatives, the moderates, can they come together to fight to win for america? that is the my main question for the speaker. dagen and i 6:00,
10:06 am
"the bottom line" fox business. ashley: you guys are a great success, a lot to talk about. that is how we love it. great to chat with kevin mccarthy. we look forward to it. sean, thank you very much. the governor of new hampshire by the way talking about potential can states chris sununu apparently weighing in on the 2024 election. come on in lauren. who does he say or the gop will nominate. >> giving to ron desantis. here you go. >> obviously desantis and trump are the two candidates. >> he has not declared. >> not publicly declared he has hundreds of millions of dollars. obviously ron desantis is looking to run for president which is fine. he would probably win new hampshire now without a doubt. lauren: ironically sununu's name also comes up as a contender, ashley. he warns again the crowded field like we saw in 2016. he sees new hampshire as the first primary state responsibility to referee
10:07 am
candidates. ones that are not viable, they can't win, they drop out. in the end you have two to four names, that is what he said, could all potentially win. is he one of those names? i don't know but he thinks ron desantis is getting it. ashley: sounds good in theory. we'll see. thank you, lauren. by the way what are republicans looking to focus on in 2024? lauren: education. keeping webbing and sexual gender identity out of classroom. he was the first republican to have education as part of his platform and actually win. we heard from desantis. trump, will keep his plans for education and keeping woke policies out of the classroom. that is the big issue as of now. ashley: very good. i can see that. all right, lauren, thank you. take a look at this, a whopping 71% of americans believe the u.s. is headed in the wrong direction. i mean that is almost 3/4,
10:08 am
right? leo kelly joins me now. leo, are you surprised by that number? >> not surprised at all. this has been a tough road over the last year or so. the economy is really sending confusing signals. on one side the jobs market is very strong but on the other, wages are buying less and less with all the inflation. of course we have a stock market and bond market which had a horrible year in 2022. so portfolios are down. 401(k)s are down. folks are just confused right now. ashley: well, i noticed perhaps a little glimmer of light a little glimmer of hope in your points of view, leo. you said you've been bearish for the last, 18, 24 months, but now perhaps looking a little bit better. is that overstating it? >> no. i think that's accurate. we have been looking at the markets and we were never one to believe in this transitory
10:09 am
inflation nonsense. we thought the fed was well behind schedule in trying to battle inflation and that's really the primary reason we were so concerned about the markets. as we look at 2023 we have more ground that we have to cover. there will be volatility. the fed isn't done. remember, the fed gets what it wants. it is going to tame inflation even if there is a recession coming as a result of their actions. they have been clear and they have been resolute in their language and so i think, i think investors have to understand, it is going to be a little choppy. on other side of that time has a way of healing these issues. so the fed is finally getting in front of inflation. prices are down, which means assets are cheaper and are better buys. and i think that we're going to start to see a new leadership start to emerge over the next couple years, give investors the opportunity to start to make money again. so i would tell investors, it is
10:10 am
good to have cash on the sidelines, especially when treasuries are paying over 4% and it is good to have those cash holdings as dry powder to take advantage of volatility. ashley: any particular areas that you are thinking are still good value at this point? >> well we think the transition of leadership is still early. and so whether we're talking about value, traditional value securities, international stocks look historically cheap relative to the u.s. small cap stocks look, very, very inexpensive relative to the large cap breath en. for investors the bottom line is simply this, you can't look what has been successful in the past and hope it goes back to way it was because that is going to be struggle. we have rising rates. they will continue to go higher. we believe, quite frankly we are in a secular bear market in bonds, meaning interest rates will be going up for a long, long time. that changes the dynamic of the
10:11 am
market. it brings in volatility. it makes it a little harder for the growth stocks. so we think it is time to rethink how you look at the markets. this isn't a market you throw the money in the s&p 500 and go to sleep to make the highest rate of return. those days are behind us. ashley: they are behind us indeed. leo, terrific information, thank you very much, sir, for joining us this morning. let's bring back lauren if we can. you're looking at movers, lauren, phillips. the dutch health care tech company. lauren: job cuts, so the stoke goes up. not only are they cutting 3,000 jobs this year, ashley, they're cutting another 3,000 by 2025. it is just this fall, they announced 4,000 layoffs. what do they do? schedule mri canners, ultrasounds machines and reported a loss for the fourth quarter. on top of the loss we got the job cut announcement. they're trimming costs that is the bottom line. goldman sachs says macy's is best positioned among retail

♪ earnings businesses across the country are pouring billions of dollars into art official intelligence advancements. lydia hu joins me now. lydia, what exactly are companies looking to do with this new technology?
10:18 am
>> reporter: actually they have different objectives. they range from improving search functions, imitating credible thinking, and even up next reading human emotions. the one common goal here is making money. the a.i. market is exploding. the global market value reached nearly $120 billion last year and it is expected to exceed 1.5 trillion by 2030. microsoft is partnering partnerh open a.i. that is the maker of chatgpt, marrying chatgpt with microsoft search platform bing presents the company with the opportunity to compete with google but google which has long been considered the leader in a.i. is also said to be refocusing investment in artificial intelligence technology and will reportedly roll out new products this spring like its own chat bot. despite trimming 11,000 jobs meta is investing in a.i. to
10:19 am
improve ad targeting while it recovers from apple's privacy changes that limits meta's ability to gather information about users. money is flowing to startups, ashley. humai has raised more than $12 million with the goal to teach automated systems to understand human emotion. it already gained hundreds of clients that include call centers. and now, as china's tech company baidu plans to launch a chatgpt style bot in march, ashley also needs to be said the race is on between america and china to be the leader in artificial technology. ashley. ashley: amazing. a.i., means all in apparently. lydia, thank you very much. now come in here, lauren, talking of which a.i. technology like chatgpt is rising in popularity of course among children in particular. so the question is, is there anything like yourself can do to
10:20 am
protect their children? lauren: talk about it? does your child really know what it is? maybe work together using it, you can't say it is bad, you can't use it. explore it. there are negatives and also positives. if we like it or not chatgpt will usher in a new era of education, right? if i were a student i would want to use it, right? think about it. you're always on the computer, ant don't want to do your homework so use isn't parents and educators need to get around it, talking about when it is okay to use, when it is not. ashley: would have been really handy for me trying to do my homework. lauren: yeah. ashley: i was using encyclopedias back in the day. the internet didn't exist. that is how old i am. lauren, thank you very much. twitter's ceo, elon musk just gave dave rubin a behind the seen look at twitter's headquarters. lucky guy. dave, you join us now.
10:21 am
what did you learn during your trip? i would imagine it is pretty fascinating, so many layoffs, selling everything, was it kind of like a warehouse? >> yeah it was. it was rather extrordinary actually. i was there for two days. both times i met with elon after midnight. this guy is quite literally burning the midnight oil. he is working all day long, tons of engineers there, all night trying to fix the massive, massive problems but to your original point the place itself kind of feels like a ghost town. when elon got there he took there, the workforce was 7500 people. i think they have 3500 now. he fired half the people. i think that is just the beginning of what he is going to do there but what he kept describing to me i thought was most interesting he described the whole system as as a fractal rube goldberg machine jenga. you build the tower with little wood blocks.
10:22 am
if you pull one out that you might nokia the whole thing down. the code is layered, so much confusion, bad actors, bad programing, truly malicious things, hidden by the previous regime at twitter led by jack dorsey, is he trying to fix all of this. they fix one thing, then something else screws up. ashley: right. >> more than anything else i learned this guy is really, really trying. he kept talking about free speech. there was no talk of we want to censor people or anything else. he want as good product. he would like to make it profitable but i think first he wants to fix it. ashley: did he talk about shadow banning, dave? >> there is way more shadow banning going on that than we thought. one thing we learns from the twitter files, there were ways they could outwardly label the account, so internal they could see you're labeled misinformation. they found out first about my account, they did a deep dive
10:23 am
into nye account, layered in the codes there were several other waives they could be labeled they did not know about until last week. they're trying to figure out how many people were hit with this. if anything, i learned that it seemed like the entire system was built to shadow ban. so when jack dorsey, who was the former ceo testified that they don't shadow ban, i guess technically the word shadow ban is a little amorphous. call it whatever you want. there was a system in plies to make sure certain ideas would not be heard. ashley: fascinating stuff. i want to change topics completely, dave, i know you're very heart on this one. former secretary of state mike pompeo issued an alarming warning about china's threat to u.s. national security. listen to this and i will get your comment. >> we need to find out if the chinese communist party may have had access at the university of pennsylvania where president biden clearly had documents. it would be a pretty open space. maria, you talk and i talked
10:24 am
about this for years. the chinese communist party is at every major university. with research and students. the chinese officials met classified documents in the space. they were in the same place. we need to toe h to know if there is any risk they might have gotten ahold of them. ashley: do you agree with that assessment, dave? >> of course. i had secretary pompeo on my show last week. he reit rated that point. what he is talking about something we all know. china has its fingers in almost every part of american society right now. let's not forget, according to kevin mccarthy, the house majority leader, eric swalwell had a relationship with a chinese spy since i tend to believe since the media refuses to debunk it. if they're in it with our congressman, and in it at our educational institutions god knows what else, we have a real issue here, we better figure out fast. this country seems to be, i would say at a federal level
10:25 am
veering out of control. there are good things happening at the state level. we need to figure out what is going on at the top right now. >> and as soon as possible. dave rubin, great stuff. thanks for joining us. we really appreciate it. >> thank you. ashley: now this, employees in new york city -- thank you. employees in new york city will have to take manadatory critical race theory training. lauren, come on in here. what is this all about. lauren: fox news got a copy of the training, mandatory for all new york city employees by eric adams. they need to complete it by march 6th. what is it about? three types of racism, individual, institutional and structural. you learn about each one but the bottom line everything is looked at the through the lens of race not only establish but also justify systems of power and privilege that have been in place. so got to take it if you work for the city. ashley: leave it right there

antifa activist. good morning to you. to charles's point we have seen protests across the country. they have been mostlies peaceful correct? >> they have been, good morning. what happened to tyre nichols is sickening. many people want to reform police tactics to have voices heard and that is great. we have to acknowledge the threat antifa poses. they don't just want voices heard they want to abolish police and start violence on the street. they put out a call on violence. they wanted to quote, burn it all down. we want to be sure they don't turn into the summer riots in summer of 2020. law enforcement and politicians have to have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to vie violence. ashley: antifa, is it persistent in violent reactions as it has been or starting to fade a little? >> there is definitely a strong presence in antifa to this very day. you know something, look at new york, for example. there was and antifa activist

10:37 am
you know something. i want to add this. we commission ad national survey, 75% of americans support fully funding the police. americans understand fully funding the police will stop violence like the kind we saw in georgia and other places. as a result we'll hire more qualified police officers if we fully funding the police. without that we have chaos. ashley: thank you, gabriel. thank you for taking time to chat with us. i do appreciate it. an air force general, thank you. make as chilling prediction saying we could be on the brink of war with china in just two years. kt mcfar land will deal with that in the next hour. republican senator tom cotton congress will impose pain on the white house until they give them access to the biden's classified documents. peter doocy with a full report

while the director of national intelligence had been willing to brief us earlier now that you have got the special counsel, the notion that we're going to be left in limbo and we can't do our job, that just cannot stand. >> reporter: president biden is trying very hard to change the subject. he has got a full week of trips out of town to talk about infrastructure and some dnc fund-raisers as we inch closer to february, the morning, earliest month he is reportedly considering announcing for re-election. ashley? ashley: nothing to see here. move along. pete doocy, great stuff, peter, thank you very much. let's take a look at this, an equal number of americans are concerned about the classified documents found at both president biden's wilmington home and mr. trump's mar-a-lago home, despite how differently the two responded. joe concha joins me now. great to see you, joe. what is your reaction to all of this? it was outrage of course when the fbi raided pre-dawn hours
10:45 am
mar-a-lago and then there is joe biden, oh, just in the locked garage next to my 'vette, interesting. >> right. not just that garage but obviously at the penn biden center in washington as well. but i think, ashley, as far as the act of taking classified documents during or after leaving office i think it has become a wash for both joe biden and donald trump in terms of changing any votes in the 2024 elections because we not only have biden but we have trump, now we have the former vice president pence all committing the same act. has anybody checked on dan quayle lately? almost like a high school kegger. everybody is drinking. everybody is underage. seeming everybody is doing it then it doesn't seem as much like a horrible sin but it is just amazing, regardless who we talk about here, how easily classified documents could be taken from the white house or other sensitive areas and the bigger question as it pertains to the sitting president, ashley, what is in these documents? does any of have classified information that has to do with hunter biden, business dealings in china or ukraine or both and
10:46 am
did joe biden profit off the deals based on influence peddling of the family name. if that is the case we have at least in the case of china a sitting president compromised by arguably our biggest adversary. it is not so much the taking of the documents, that is important, don't get me wrong but what is in them will be the next chapter in the story. ashley: right, exactly. now this topic, joe, democrat congressman jim hines claims house speaker kevin mccarthy's move to kick out adam schiff and eric swalwell out of intel committee could hurt national security. listen to this. >> i know adam schiff. i know why republicans are angry with adam schiff he led in my opinion capable investigation what the president of the united states did holding up to aid to ukraine that made them angry. to appease his right-wing kevin mccarthy sort of had to throw adam schiff on the fire along with eric swalwell that hurts our national security. between the two of them they have 20 years of intelligence
10:47 am
oversight. that evidently is gone now. that makes us a less safe country. ashley: you know what? i think intelligence is misnomer here, joe, because let's face it, schiff was the one who went around touting the steele dossier, screaming collusion, russia, russia, was completely wrong and then of course we have swalwell who has a relationship with a chinese spy. give me a break. >> precisely. adam schiff actually put the steele dossier into the congressional record without verifying it whatsoever because he wanted to believe it, right? must have been opposite day when that interview, if you want to call it that when it was conducted by the way. adam schiff he is the michael avenatti of congress. tons of media attention, lacking any shred of credibility, ashley. washington's worst-kept secret by the way, schiff leaked to the press time and time again. he simply can't be trusted especially on the intel committee. for years he had evidence of evidence of collusion between donald trump and the kremlin he never produced it.
10:48 am
other media outlets continued to book him on several interviews and treated his word as goss fell. if you play the game, eric swalwell when you first two words you come to mind when you hear his name, fang fang would be the number one answer. elections have consequences, ashley. when democrats side to move republicans from committee. republicans were given green light to do it when they came into power. this is how it works unfortunately. ashley: unfortunately is right. joe concha, terrific stuff as always. thank you for chatting with us. >> great to see you. ashley: thank you, same here. a group of teenagers vandalized a brewery in michigan causing $200,000 in damage to the property. the owner of that brewery says he may never be able to reeven. he is on our show to talk about it. police releasing video of attack on nancy pelosi's house and the alleged attacker is speaking out from jail. we have his chilling message
