10:03 am
ilhanomar is off of the committee because she made anti-semitic statements. the left doesn't see it that way. the new york times, which is the democrats bible, sees her as an act of political revenge. nancy pelosi kicked people off of committees, according to the times it is just politics. to alexandria ocasio cortez, it is racism directed at women of color. >> there's nothing consistent with the republican party's continued attacks except for the racism and incitement of violence against women of color in this body. this is about targeting women of color in the united states of america, don't tell me because i didn't get a single -- >> time is expired. stuart: plenty of passion. fellow squad member rashida tlaib went further. >> the gop is doing what is
10:04 am
best at, weapon icing hate against a black, beautiful, muslim woman. i will not be silenced. >> the gentlewoman's time is expired. the gentlewoman's time is expired. >> through this chamber -- >> the gentlewoman is no longer recognized. stuart: that is it. political revenge and racism, that is not it. anti-semitism is at the heart of this. ill on omar -- ilhan omar says they are about -- they are aligned with israel and therefore disloyal. she accuses israel of, quote, have notarizing the world to cover up its evil doings. she supports the boycott investment in sanctions movement designed to cripple israel. i'm surprised the democrat party keeps her in the party. she can serve on any other
10:05 am
committee but not foreign affairs. speaker mccarthy was dead right. second hour of varney just getting started. the fired up tammy bruce, give her a chance. >> transcending. every now and then i pound on this desk. a lot of arguments in the past, that we should stop the politics because we get emotional, we move into this arena where we become hysterical and that was called misogynist. what happened when all of this was happening? that was an embarrassment. confirming stereotypes of why women should not a in power. you can be upset about things and articulate that and have opposition and debate but they made fools of themselves and
10:06 am
shame on them. part of the reason she was removed from the foreign relations committee is there arguments once again condemned this country and americans and their colleagues and called everybody a racist. the world watches this. you have are the representative body to the world of the united states and our people and that is their attitude, that is the messaging that has been sent and that's the point of the foreign relations committee, seen as a body that represents the attitude of congress toward the world and it is not just do hatred, call it what it is, attacking a stalwart ally of israel that is always generally under attack, people looking for weaknesses, iran, etc. to wipe the country of the map. it is i don't understand what i was saying. she thinks we are not judging
10:07 am
her by the content of her character but which we are. we are judging her by the content of her character and she is saying she wants us to view her as ignorant, naïve, uneducated, unsure, i didn't know what i was saying. she was a 41-year-old middle-aged woman who has made it into congress, clearly a monumental accomplishment and her excuse is i didn't know any better and hakeem jeffries says she learned her lesson and will try to do better like she is 7 years old. that is the misogyny and it is perpetuated. she had to be removed from that committee because do hatred is not what america stands for. we are against the anti-semitism, against the hatred in general, and the equation of the united states and israel with terrorism and terrorist groups. he's going to speak for people who voted her in, she got checked with removal here,
10:08 am
democrats are generally happy about that and how dare she continue in the smearing of jews and americans in general. stuart: it took 30 seconds to get truly fired up but you got there. >> you can cry and do something. it is about being a role model for everyone and being passionate, but my goodness, let's not make fools of ourselves. stuart: you are all right, thanks. see you again soon. back to the markets, i am seeing some red ink. we get to big tech, mixed picture, apple on the upside after its report yesterday, we are at 153, and alphabet down 2. 5%. market watcher this friday morning joins me now. apple, amazon, google, disappointing earnings.
10:09 am
what does that mean for the rest of the market? >> nothing like a tree of chilly tech reports. traders got ahead of themselves. amazon was up 35% year to date, alphabet is up 25%. none of these companies if you go through it, report anything rosie this quarter, amazon said based on the consumer, cloud growth got cut in half, apple had the weakest holiday sales quarter since 2015, first quarterly sales since 2019 and trying to blame it on supply-chain. we know the consumer is stressed, taking out loans from their where out -- their 401(k). it is going lower after the smart phone market, declined by 18%. stuart: the jobs report and the service sector report, i call it good news for main street,
10:10 am
good news for president biden, bad news for wall street. you agree with that? >> i agree 100%. it gives license to raise rates and crashing this economy into a recession. amazon talked consumers switching lower-priced goods. my fellow et al. young kenny polcari, i would be inquisitive on apple, but it has got to come back down to where it was. apple has always been since 2001 a great by when it dips below 130. i would not go near the dumpster fire of advertising spending with alphabet a meta, and snap. the market is top-heavy with tech, got to be looking from the bottom up, innovators of tomorrow and bargain-basement prices. stuart: i will try to take your advice. stay warm wherever you are.
10:11 am
i concentrate on meta-for a moment. >> >>. how many%. 56.8%, make it 57%. last year was disastrous. citigroup says they are going all the way to 228, the latest to come out. stuart: meta goes to 275. cyrus logic. lauren: audio technology up 7%. apple is one of the biggest customers. their revenue grew almost 8%, and increased amount for its
10:12 am
tech particularly smart phones. people are buying fewer smart phones but are still benefiting. stuart: i want to get back to the huge jobs report added in january. at the labor department, take us through this spectacular report. >> 17,000 created, 3.4% is where the on employment rate went. since may 1969, a little bit of noise based on revisions that were done every year the labor department does revisions. this is a reset on this but what this does show is good job creation, solid growth and that gives license to increase 25 basis points, when you look at the report, grew 4. 5% the past 12 months but still
10:13 am
far short of the 6.5% cpi inflation, the heritage foundation says the average american worker lost 3000, to 4000 a year because of the inflation. the president will use the low and employment rate when he talks about this report in the next few minutes. the labor secretary from this morning, listen. >> a lot of people come back to work, strong economy, large growth in business, hospitality, growth in the healthcare sector and the education sector. you have seen areas people are hiring and a lot of companies have people working. >> leisure and hospitality led the way, adding 128,000 jobs. still 810,000 at pre-pandemic levels, and 58,000 manufacturing, and this is a good report, shows no recession
10:14 am
yet, but federal reserve license. stuart: thank you very much. stephen colbert forces audience to mask up his entire we, he wants to prove the white house, the pandemic is not over. >> i wish you could see the smiles on the faces of my audience and wish i could too because they are still wearing masks. stuart: i don't get it. china confirmed the spy balloon hovering over montana is theirs. they call it a weather balloon, why don't we shoot this thing down? i will ask kongsberg chris stewart next. ♪ ♪

's latest poll shows the president has more work to do.
10:31 am
you see a trend that has been familiar the better part of the last year and that is his overall job performance at 45%. that is relatively the same but when you dive into the actual issues, majority of voters disagree on the handling of everything from the economy to ukraine to border security, still, the white house thinks given the unemployment, perhaps the jobs report, covid being on the back burner they have a decent shot at it. the president will be accompanied by kamala harris heading to philadelphia for economic event and party fundraiser which is a clear sign the president is ready to pass the baton to another democrat. a potential factor which may or may not impact the election plans, the federal investigation, hunter biden, major headlines yesterday trying to flip the script, not calling for common

10:34 am
hunter in a computer repair shop. in april 2019, which was just a few days before president biden announced he was running for president, this was a major problem, president biden had gone to ground for the 5 days between publishing our first story and about it. he knew it was bad news, and it doesn't change anything as far as our reporting goes, because we were perfectly satisfied that it was hunter biden's laptop. but now finally, this pretense and the dancing around it from the biden campaign is over regardless of the fact that hunter's lawyers sent another email saying we didn't mean that it belonged to you. stuart: thank you for clearing this up. i get lost in these weeds and

10:42 am
>> i don't know if we should shoot it down but we should make clear we will not allow this to happen again. anyone who believes it is a weather balloon is very naïve. it is clearly an intelligence balloon and it is clearly violating international agreement. honestly, i don't think the opportunity to shoot it down may present itself again, but if this were to recur, we should have a definitive line the chinese cannot cross. stuart: it is the size, we are talking it is the size of three buses, three school buses and has heavy equipment underneath it. it is hovering or flying right over our missile sites in montana and the dakotas. sounds like a threat to me. >> once again it clearly is. the explanation of it being a weather balloon makes no sense.
