9:02 am
sanctions after testing a ballistic missile and tehran with the exercises. this is a fox news alert. you're looking live at vice-president mike pence speaki speaking about supreme court nominee neil gorsuch. let's listen in live. okay, we're having trouble connecting the audio at this particular moment, but you can see on your screen here, that is vice-president pence, travelling to philadelphia today spoo he canning to a group of folks there. if you want to watch this live event, it's streaming on, but in the meantime, there's been a lot of discussion about this particular nominee. we've been talking about it from both sides of the aisle, we know that the vice-president will be speaking with our own chris wallace tomorrow morning, but in the meantime, let's listen in live and just get a
9:03 am
piece of this audio for you. >> in the word of abraham lincoln, they had labor to create an apple of gold, now had he needed a pitcher of silver to frame it in, to adorn and preserve the principles at the heart of our exceptional experiment in self-government and so it would be 11 years later in the summer of 1787, our founding fathers returned to independence hall. they came to craft a frame work of government that would protect those timeless ideals, the ideals that bind us together as a people, and give us purpose as a nation. they gave us the constitution of the united states of america. [applaus [applause] >> it was, it is and i believe it will forever be the greatest
9:04 am
charter of liberty our world has ever seen. it's fostered our nations unparalleled success and it is to this day, the greatest bulwark against tyranny in history. this is the constitution that president trump and i have both sworn to uphold. on january 20th, just over two weeks ago, we stood before the american people and before god and we made solemn vows. in my oath of office, i simply promised to support and defend the constitution. as did the president. and i promise you, we will keep that oath. [applause]. people keep asking me what it was like up there on the stage. i tell people, it was just very humbling, it was humbling for me to be there. you see, my grandfather came to this country from a little town
9:05 am
in ireland when he was about our son's age. got on a boat, he crossed the atlantic and he went through ellis island and took the train to chicago illinois where he drove a bus for 40 years. he was the proudest man i ever knew. the fact that richard michael cally had the courage to cross that ocean is why michael richard pence is now the vice-president of the united states of america. it is -- it is, i expect, startling to him knowing me as well as he did. [laughter] >> more ways than one. i found myself thinking up on that stage what that irishman must be thinking looking down from glory and only come to one conclusion, he was right. not about me. he was right about america, where anybody can be anybody
9:06 am
because of the system of liberty that we have enshrined in the constitution and in the founding documents of this nation. [applaus [applause] >> that moment was made all the more special to me because of the man who administered my oath of office, justice clarence thomas. [applaus [applause] >> i'm privileged to have met justice thomas about a decade ago when i was a member of congress and privileged to have a chance to get acquainted with a man of his conviction and his courage on the supreme court of the united states. i know everyone in this room holds justice thomas in the same high regard, not only that, we want to aid him in his
9:07 am
lonely fight, his lonely fight, too often on the supreme court, and we can do that best by giving justice clarence thomas another colleague on the bench who shares his courage and his commitment to our nation's guiding documents and this -- [applaus [applause] >> you know, the american people elected president trump. i believe in significant part, because of his vow to do just that, to nominate someone to the supreme court in the mold of not only justice thomas, but also of the late and great justice antonin scalia. [applaus [applause] >> it was such a special night earlier this week when we were joined not only by our nominee
9:08 am
and his wife, but also by the widow of justice scalia and his son, who was with us there and shared that moment. justice antonin scalia's devotion to the constitution will be forever remembered by the people of the united states of america. [applaus [applause] >> but this was president trump's promise and make no mistake about it, my friends, in the federalist society we're in the promise of keeping business in washington d.c. now. before i say anymore now, it behooves us to remember justice scalia's memory. we knew justice scalia, some of us personally and others through the impact on our nation's law. the federalist society owes him a great deal. justice scalia was one of its first faculty mentors in the early 1980's, i'm told, at
9:09 am
university of chicago. our country owes a great deal to him, his incomparable opinions and even more his dissents, will stand the test of time influencing futures of lawyers through his wit and wisdom. as his successor said the other night, america misses justice scalia greatly and i know we'll always cherish him in our chart. would you mind get to your feet and showing how much we remember the life and memory of justice scalia. [applaus [applause] >> now, i mentioned before that last week i had the great privilege to speak with the justice's widow, maureen, and
9:10 am
the president had asked me to invite her to join us at the white house, as i said, to the supreme court announcement the next day, but during the conversation, i told her that president trump was about to nominate a worthy replacement for her husband and before i could go any further, she stopped me and said, actually that's not how the president puts it. she said the president actually told me that no one can replace any husband, they can only succe secede succeed him. isn't that true, we know why. and that's why president trump devoted so much energy picking the best possible nominee. last year president trump took the unprecedented step of releasing the list of 21 men and women he was considering for the supreme court. there was transparency every step of the way, unprecedented in this process. each individual the president named shared several key
9:11 am
qualifications, sterling academic credentials, a brilliant legal mind and an unwavering commitment to the constitution of the united states. four days ago as you all know, president trump nominated someone who fits this description to a t, judge neil m gorsuch. [applause]. my friends, i can say with the utmost confidence, judge gorsuch is a worthy successor to justice antonin scalia. by the grace of god and i know the tireless efforts of everyone in this room, i believe that neil gorsuch will soon take his seat as an associate justice on the supreme court of the united states. [applause].
9:12 am
[applause]. >> . elizabeth: when you get right down to it, judge gorsuch, plain and simple, is one of the most mainstream, respected and exceptionally qualified supreme court nominees in american history. don't take my word for it. that was actually the conclusion of the american bar association in 2006. after president george w. bush nominated him to the 10th circuit court of appeals the aba gave him a unanimous rating of well-qualified. which is the highest possible recommendation. and the united states senate agreed. only two months after neil gorsuch's nomination to the court of appeals the senate confirmed him by a unanimous voice vote. and nearly a third of those senators on both sides of the aisle are still serving in the senate today. a unanimous vote. as president trump asked on tuesday, can you believe that? [laughter] >> well, yes, you can. when you look at judge gorsuch's record ever since, in his decade on the 10th circuit
9:13 am
he established himself as a fair and impartial judge who has been faithful to the constitution. 's well-known by peers as a keen clear thinker and just as important a clear writer. he's evident to all he's a man of high character, courage, indispensible qualities for a jurist. the past few days, supporters of judge gorsuch and works. ed whalen, a former clerk to justice scalia declared him a dedicated originalist and writes with clarity, force and verve. the wall street journal, said he was a choice that would adhere to the original meaning of the constitution and leonard leo, who of course is here, called him an exceptional jurist. by the way, leonard, let me say again, how much i and the president appreciate your tireless work on behalf of our
9:14 am
countries and the constitution, we are grateful for all you have done. [applaus [applause] >> now, i should also note that judge gorsuch is so well-liked, those who disagree with him also sing his praises. norm icen, president obama's former ethics czar said neil gorsuch is a great guy. and another acting under president obama called him quote, an extraordinary judge, closed quote, who will, quote, represent restore confidence in the rule of law. that's what this is really all about, isn't it? our constitutional order
9:15 am
requires the rule of law, without exception. we are, after all, a nation of laws. judge gorsuch firmly understands this. he said on many occasions that judges must apply the law as written without regard to their own politics or personal feelings. he put it well on tuesday and movingly, saying, quote, in our legal order, it's for congress and not the courts to write new laws. he added, it is the role of judges to apply not alter the work of the people's representatives. and my favorite line, sitting as i was on the front row was this one, he said, quote, a judge who likes every outcome he reaches is likely a bad judge, stretching for results he prefers rather than those the law demands. i don't know about you, but that's my kind of supreme court justice. [applaus
9:16 am
[applause] >> not just his words, judge gorsuch's record on the bench clearly demonstrates the fidelity of the wisdom of the founders rather than whims of our own day and age and written more than 200 published opinions on the 10th circuit. if you read them all and some have, the promises you did, and a picture emerges. he's an originalist who will pick up where justice scalia left off. he defends the constitution's unique federalism and restricts the national government to specific and ennumber rated powers enshrined in the constitution while leaving to the states much more sizable control over their lives and destinies. these carefully calibrated
9:17 am
mechanisms, so wisely defined by our founding fathers are strong for the protection of the american people's fundamental liblts. by defending them, judge gorsuch has shown to be a true friend of our freedoms. it should be abundantly clear that judge neil gorsuch is a worthy successor to judge scalia. 's cut from the same cloth. our country will be stronger with him on the supreme court. but we're not there yet, which is why i'm here. first, of course, we must abide by the constitution and secure the advice and consent of the senate. the morning after his nomination, i had the privilege of escorting judge gorsuch to capitol hill for the first time. in a few short days he's already met with 12 senators in both political parties and he's making himself available to meet with all 100 members of the senate if they're willing to meet with him. of course, several announced their opposition within minutes
9:18 am
of his nomination and now they're even threatening to use the filibuster procedure in the senate to top him. make no mistake about it, this would be an unwise and unprecedented act. never before in the history of our country has an associate justice nominee to the supreme court faced a successful filibuster. and judge neil m gorsuch should not be the first. [applaus [applause] >> let me say, president trump and i have full confidence that judge gorsuch will be confirmed, but rest assured, we will work with the senate leadership to ensure that judge gorsuch gets an up or down vote on the senate floor, one way or the other. [applause].
9:19 am
[applause]. >> . elizabet elizabeth:. >> this seat does not belong to any ideology or party or interest group. this seat on the supreme court belong to the american people and american people deserve a vote on the floor of the united states senate. [applaus [applause] >> my friends, this is a historic time for our country. we're on the verge, literally, of reaffirming the supremacy of the constitution in our nation's supreme court. we're giving a new voice to the age old vision of our founding fathers, rededicating and our country to the timeless principles that they proclaimed only a few steps away from right where we're standing today. under president trump's leadership we're returning power to the american people, the rightful rulers of the greatest nation the world has
9:20 am
ever known. we have much work to do, but ma i'm confident with the grace of god we'll accomplish the task before us. let me just close by saying thank you, thank you to all of you for your work as men and women of the law, participants in the federalist society, your own fealty to the united states and i must tell you that it's inspiring to be here today. and i truly leave for all that the nation has accomplished in the last 241 years i'm absolutely confident as we keep faith with the ideals that were first minted a few steps away from here in our founding documents, in that declaration and in that constitution, the best days for america are yet to come. thank you very much and god bless, and god bless had the
9:21 am
u.s. [applause]. thank you. . >> you have been listening live for about 20 minutes to vice-president mike pence. he was speaking to the federalist society in philadelphia, perhaps a group that does not need convincing, but he did segue halfway through the speech sort of talking about the elephant in the room and that's obviously the entire senate's decision whether or not to nominate president donald trump's nominee for replacements for the late justice scalia. he's talked about he's met with 12 senators on both sides of the aisle and he's willing to meet with all 100. he talked a lot about his resume' and how it comes down to the fact that he is going to be, you know, there for the
9:22 am
american people and he said he deserves a vote on the floor and whether or not those lawmakers wanted to debate it and filibuster it, that he is the ultimate person to interpret the constitution. >> well, yeah, liz, and very, very striking, what you heard from the vice-president where he said there's going to be an upper or down vote one way or anoth another. that sounds an awful lot like a threat that the nuclear option is very much on the table. certainly vice-president pence talking about this among other things tomorrow when he joins chris wallace on fox news sunday, talked to chris a few minutes ago, he's getting ready for the show that will come from the super bowl stadium tomorrow morning. check your local listings. for a little bit more reaction on this we bring in the governor of the great state of
9:23 am
texas, governor abbott. nice to see you. >> good to have you in texas. leyland: good to be here and your adoring fans. we'll get to the sports talk in just a minute. your thoughts just now on what the vice-president had to say? >> he was spot on with regard to the importance of filling this seat and the great appointment that the president made in this particular pick. listen, i had the chance when i was the attorney general of texas to argue before the supreme court on the ten commandments and we won with justice scalia and the majority. and it has to be filled pie by someone like him, i believe na president trump picked the right guy. leyland: right now it's 4-4, so much that's deadlocked that's cannot come to the court. that's really, waiting for a justice and for a tie break. give me a sense from a governor's perspective what you guys need guidance on that the
9:24 am
supreme court can help with. >> we have so many cases involving the state of texas, involving voter i.d., involving the clean power plant and rules and regulations before the supreme court right now where we need that tie broken. holding up the vote on the seat is a disservice to americans, a disservice to the state, a disservice to the constitution, this seat must be filled and confirmed immediately. leyland: as you point out. it's sort of easy to sit back, gee, i don't know how it affects me at home wherever i am. as you point out now there's so many cases and law across the land that's up for grab. two big issues that premium made his campaign about, one being the supreme court. we know there are a lot of folks who voted solely on that issue. the second issue being immigration, something that hits home here in texas and dealing with sanctuary cities. already this week, you defunded for austin, sanctuary city. is this what we're going to see is more governors taking action
9:25 am
against cities to reinforce this. >> we are. you mentioned the word immigration. listen we support legal immigration. the issue is illegal immigration and action by some in austin texas, travis county sheriff who is not allowipplyine law. they don't have get to pick and choose. but holding behind bars those who could be a danger to others, because she's said she's not going to do that, i've defunded that. and we're working on penalties, potential jail time for sheriffs who do not follow the law. if they're going to swear an oath to follow the lawsuit of the country, they better do it or pay the consequences. leyland: or answer to you as it were. earlier this week, you were down on the border with the new director of homeland security.
9:26 am
give me your thoughts, is it fair to say there's a new sheriff in town? and how quickly, look at video of you on the border, how quickly can changes be made on the border? do we have to wait for the proverbial wall to be built? >> it's going to be swiftment and i asked him when can we expect it. >> he said expect speed, he's talking in the march time frame when we begin the process, several things will be done, adding more agents, two, strengthening the border, the border wall. listen, there's a border wall already there and making sure that we have adequate border wall and also it's multi-layered, boots on the ground. talking about adding 5,000 agents. leyland: more air assets. >> and make sure we secure our border. leyland: something you've been talking about this for a long time, as you pointed out, finally now, you have the opportunity to do something about it. it's got to be exciting though, as we zoom out a little bit and look where we had to be here in houston, your home state. you spent a lot of time in houston growing up and you're
9:27 am
hosting the super bowl. >> this is fabulous. this is really the sports state of america, we've got super bowls here and-- >> except none of your teams were in the super bowl. >> they've got the wrong teams in the super bowl. it should be between the houston texans and the dallas cowboys! . leyland: they agree with that, and there may be a few folks who disagree, it was a rough time for the texans and we can admit that, a quarterback problem there. when it comes to this, this is a chance to highlight the city and houstons had a hard go of it. you would think because of the down turn in oil, but despite that fact we added more than 200,000 new jobs in the state of texas this last year and more texans with jobs today than ever before. our economy is thriving, look at this area right around here and you see the level of energy, not oil energy, but the energy of the people, the vibrancy of the people of this state and there was no state better than texas, especially as concerns jobs or economic environment and the great people. leyland: you all agree you're
9:28 am
pretty great? there we go. (cheers) >> great governor, too, right? [cheers]. leyland: they agree there as well. great to have you, and look forward to talking you this months when you come to d.c. >> thank you. leyland: liz. elizabeth: great job. coming ahead after the break. some critics say that donald trump's too much power, we'll look at steve bannon. and how much the supreme court pick means for christians. >> i'm grateful tonight for my family, my friends, and my faith. these are the things that keep me grounded at life's peaks and have sustained me in its valleys. (vo) if you have type 2 diabetes, you may know what it's like to deal with high... and low blood sugar. januvia (sitagliptin) is a once-daily pill that,
9:29 am
along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar. januvia works when your blood sugar is high and works less when your blood sugar is low, because it works by enhancing your body's own ability to lower blood sugar. plus januvia, by itself, is not likely to cause weight gain or low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). januvia should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. tell your doctor if you have a history of pancreatitis. serious side effects can happen, including pancreatitis which may be severe and lead to death. stop taking januvia and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area which may be pancreatitis. tell your doctor right away and stop taking januvia if you have an allergic reaction that causes swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, or affects your breathing or causes rash or hives. kidney problems sometimes requiring dialysis have been reported. some people may develop severe joint pain. call your doctor if this happens. using januvia with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. to reduce the risk, your doctor may prescribe a lower dose of the sulfonylurea or insulin.
9:30 am
your doctor may do blood tests before and during treatment to check your kidneys. if you have kidney problems a lower dose may be prescribed. side effects may include upper respiratory tract infection, stuffy or runny nose, sore throat, and headache. for help lowering your blood sugar talk to your doctor about januvia.
9:31 am
9:32 am
what would help is simply being able to recognize a fair price. truecar has pricing data on every make and model, so all you have to do is search for the car you want, there it is. now you're an expert in less than a minute. this is truecar.
9:33 am
>> welcome back to houston. walking around here, discovery green. folks are talking a lot of football and they're also talking a lot of politics. trump choosing to address the latter on twitter this morning. the president blasted a judge's decision to freeze his executive order over the president's travel ban issued a week ago. he vows that the judge's order will be overturned. gary in palm beach as the president spends the weekend in mar-a-lago. >> the president says he has no plans to back down from his executive order and he fully plans to fight the judge's ruling which he calls ridiculous. he didn't stop there. this morning, tweeting, when a country is no longer able to say who can come in and come out especially for reasons of safety and security, big trouble and then added eastern that certain middle east countries agree with the ban. they know if certain people are
9:34 am
allowed in, it's death and destruction. >> the white house has spent much of this last week, defending the executive order and continued to do so last night in the president's weekly address which was recorded even before the judge's ruling came out. >> the executive order establishes a process to develop new vetting and mechanisms to ensure those coming into america love and support our people, that they have good intentions. >> democrats are already criticizing the president's reaction and this morning, senate minority leader chuck schumer criticized him by releasing a statement, saying in part the president's attack on judge james rowbart appointed by president bush, doesn't always bend to his wishes and continued lack of respect for the constitution making it more important that the supreme court serve as an independent check on the administration. obviously, alluding there to the upcoming supreme court
9:35 am
nomination battle. back here at mar-a-lagmar-a-lage has phone calls to the prime minister of italy and ukraine and close attention to the live shot. we're 50 yards further down the road making room for protests later as that galley -- gala getting underway. leyland: that white tie gala in a warm palm beach. back to washington, liz. elizabeth: yes, one federal judge flipped the script on president trump issuing a nationwide order on the travel ban and tweeted back on the so-called judge which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country is ridiculous and will be overturned. let's bring in our fair and balanced political panel, the authority of "government gone wild" kristen tate and a
9:36 am
strategist, jessica. i want to tell you initially when the executive order came down and heard from appellate judge out of the massachusetts and now hearing a completely different ruling from a different appellate judge in washington state. if you're at home you're feeling confused. what's going to happen next? because now we have two competing views, but obviously the most recent ruling stands. >> i think obviously the unfortunate thing here is that the confusion is going to continue. there's going to be a lot of back and forth and i think really what we can blame is the rollout of the executive order. it took days for general kelly to get out there and talk about what the travel ban or it wasn't a muslim ban and it's not good enough for people, and some are saying in the court system that it's executive
9:37 am
overreach. elizabeth: you said, the confusion is not going to stop. and different rulings from different appellate judges, and perhaps the supreme court will hear this case. >> i think it looks like it will get to that. and i think over 40 lawsuits that will have been filed. when you see how quickly the state department and dhs reversed the order and said some 60,000, perhaps 100,000 visa holders are now going to be able to fly into the united states, you can see that public sentiment is actually on the side of those opposing the executive order. elizabeth: i want to bring in kristen, because we heard from the white house and heard from the president and sean spicer saying this is lawful. so they're confident that if it does get challenged, that it will be upheld. kristen. >> yeah, i mean, trump will keep fighting for this. this is why trump won. trump did not win because of the economy, didn't win because we want a bigger military. he won because of immigration. americans are fed up. we've seen what happened in paris, we've seen what happened
9:38 am
in nice, seen what happened in germany, we've seen what happened in orlando. americans have said, enough is enough, that's why they voted for trump and understand. >> kristen. >> that americans want to put america first and safety first and i also want to point out that the seven countries that were identified as the biggest terrorist threats, they were identified by obama. but the bottom line here is that. >> kristen. >> they can decide who can decide into the country and who cannot. >> absolutely that's the right of the united states. first of all, the shooter in orlando, for instance is an american citizen born in queens just like donald trump. what obama did was to look at a list of countries to look at more knows to ban. what he did was a slowdown, not a ban. >> and the pushing out this narrative is not true and you're seeing that the courts are getting on the side of the people here and. >>. elizabeth: this creates confusion, kristen, i understand that you're saying
9:39 am
that this brings clarity. how does this executive order bring clarity, especially when it comes to immigration. >> i think the real source of confusion is the nair testify pushed by the left and the mainstream media that this is a muslim ban. this is not a muslim ban, it's a temporary pause on migration from seven countries identified as dangerous by president obama. that's what it is. >> all right, jessica last wordments by calling it a muslim ban, it's creating mass hysteria throughout the country. >> i don't know how many. elizabeth: if this does continue that people are held up at airport and confusion when it comes to custom and border protection how it should be enforced and that perhaps has to do with the constitution. jessica, i'll give you the last words. i wanted to say if it's clear what he's doing, smart people across the country, federal judges approved 99 votes, a bush appointee, why are they so cued about the constitutionality of it and
9:40 am
what a judge did in washington was to put a pause on it, and trump favorite thing, a slowdown, they want clarification and i don't think it's possible that so many intelligent people, so many good americans around the country are cued about something that is so, quote, clear to you, kristen. this is only clear to the 35% of donald trump's base that was into the idea of a muslim ban. everybody else is scratching their heads and frankly disturbed by what it going on, it's uncertain. >> this is about putting america first the liberal pundits and democrats don't get it. you don't understand why trump won and that's why. >> that's why 50% don't approve. elizabeth: end it there, ladies, thank you, obviously, there's still a lot up in the air. thank you so much. leland. >> still ahead, from houston, president trump's supreme court nominee, of course, pledged to protect free speech in houses of worship. he's making good on a lot of promises to evangelicals.
9:41 am
we're going to talk about what mr. trump's policies mean for christians, especially in conservative texas.
9:42 am
9:43 am
9:44 am
9:45 am
>> vice-president pence, a few minutes ago, wrapped up speaking in philadelphia. talking about president trump's supreme court nominee, neil gorsuch. you saw those remarks live and then the vice-president essential essentially threatening the nuclear option if there's not an up or down vote. and the pick on tuesday, and coupleded with the president's threatening to roll back the johnson amendment. and a week for evangelicals, you can keep it, the taxes. nice to see new the great state of texas. a lot of evangelicals down here. >> yes. leyland: as you talk to them, they've got to be pretty happy
9:46 am
here. >> here is a secret, i wouldn't share this on air. leyland: i appreciate that. but just twen us, what's good for evangelicals is good for america, it's not about-- >> the president made it about evangelicals and promised-- >> why do we christians want what we want? if we believe it's good for america. christians should never be concerned with christians, the point is we're concerned with everybody, but i really do believe when you give people a level playing field, good things happen evangelical christians have been boxed out of conversation, and. leyland: all politics is local and this is a president who campaigned heavily on the issue of the supreme court. >> that's right. leyland: do evangelicals believe promise made, promise kept? his speech? >> how can you believe anything
9:47 am
else? . he has spoken clearly about understanding that the judiciary has been an activist judiciary, they're not governing governing out of the constitution. they're making things up. roe vs wade is made up law. leyland: we heard from leo leonard, the society about president trump on this, the president understands this conce conce concept whether or not --. >> having a president that understands this, is shocking. you wouldn't expect a new york moderate like trump to understand this. leyland: it's either a part of his faith or he believes it. we'll save that. but this will be contentious nomination with neil gorsuch no question about that. will the evangelicals go the next step, will they work, are they going to write and call senators. >> no question, absolutely. listen, listen, first of all. leyland: what are you heard?
9:48 am
>> i don't see why we even need to worry about it. thanks to harry reid, the one thing that he did in his career, he created this nuclear option. so i don't think that anybody is worried that gorsuch is not going to get in. leyland: not worried at all? >> no, i think that the democrats, unfortunately, have opted to be the party of anger, and protest, and so they're going to kick and scream because they don't have the votes and think what can we do to gin up our base so don't lose face with our people. we are going to kick and scream and drag our heels. you can do that, but there's no way it can be effective. leyland: all right. appreciate you being here, sir. we'll have you come back and talk and get a sense in terms of not only what the evangelicals are doing about this and the johnson amendment. >> that's huge. leyland: it certainly will be. thank you, enjoy houston. >> thank you. leyland: you're not here for the super bowl, but fun anyway. >> that's right.

president donald trump's side. chief strategist steve bannon. democrats and even some republicans have expressed concerns over bannon in the oval office. and following bannon's mover on to the national security council. thank you for joining us, i appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. elizabeth: first and foremost, i want to get into the nitty-gritty. you see the media paying a lot of attention to bannon, you see him on the cover of the articles and headlines. is this being sensationalized and is there concern there? >> i don't think it's sensationalized. he has a lot of power, he and donald trump have america first, immigration, worries about radical islam and steve bannon seems to have a direct line and the cabinet secretary's friends that they don't seem to have. elizabeth: you and i have been
9:54 am
discussing some of the messaging we saw on the campaign trail is something that we're seeing in the white house and that's what voters wanted. why is there such surprise that the things, we're seeing executive orders, that, you know, a lot of his policies are coming down, on immigration, and what he campaigned on. >> i like to say i wasn't surprised, but i think the surprise is that so many politicians make promises on the campaign trail, but they don't actually keep them. trump seems to be the rare politician who is trying to keep his promises. and i think it's more about process though. it's one thing to say we want to restrict immigration, but another thing to suddenly issue an executive order on a friday night that you barely consulted your own cabinet aides or government lawyers on and that's upsetting people, even in the republican party, where many people might be open to the idea having stricter vetting of of refugees or whatever, they're concerned about how it came about, and
9:55 am
affected the lives of really innocent people. elizabeth: i want to get to that, but first, you brought up something i want to expand on, you talked about process and philosophy. the new york times had published a record of steve bannon speaking to a group in the vatican and talking about philosophies and beliefs and get your reaction. >> we have to face an unpleasant fact and that unpleasant fact there is a major war brewing, a war that's global, it's growing global in scale, today's technology, media, weapons of mass destruction, it's going to lead to a global conflict that i believe has to be confronted today. if seems like there's a fear in there of sort of like a global war against islam, which we know, is something that people are afraid of. i want to get your reaction to that speech being released and is this just something that he was speaking to because he was catering to his audience and how does it translate to
9:56 am
possible policies in the white house? >> i don't believe that he was catering audience, that there's a threat from the judeo christian west, and radical islam, and sometimes he uses just islam. he used to run breitbart, if you read breitbart, you'll see a lot of articles and columns and other pieces that go along with this philosophy. so, it's something that-- it's not that he talks about it one time to a vatican audience, he brought it up on a number of occasions so it's something he firmly believes. elizabeth: thank you for joining us, we appreciate it, fascinating. thank you so much. we'll be back with more news right after the break. stay with us. life can feel like a never ending search for food that won't cause bloating, gas, or inner turmoil. try pronourish. a delicious nutritional drink that makes a great mini meal or snack that has protein and fiber.

10:03 am
ruling stance. the district judge appointed by george w. bush in 2003, ruled that, ruled that halting president trumps executive order is in the public interest. the democratic attorney general of washington state, one of the plaintiffs in this case strongly supported the judges decision. >> we are a nation of laws. folks may not like this decision come i'm certain the president will not like this decision. but it is his job and responsibility, an obligation as president to honor it. i will. i will make sure he does. >> top democrats lauded the hearing. schumer said it was victory and said president trump needs to heed this really. house democratic leader, nancy pelosi said democrats would continue to pay for the close, dangerous, and, dangerous, and a constitutional ban to be rescinded or overturned. but the trumpet ministration is not giving up. the department of homeland security put out a statement
10:04 am
saying that it will go back to the old way of processing travelers are now saying dhs personnel will resume travelers in accordance to procedure. at the earliest possible time the department of justice intends to file an emergency stay and defend the president's executive order, which is lawful and appropriate. the dhs statement statement goes on to say that this executive order was intended to protect the homeland and the american people. the president has the "responsibility to do". >> thank you so much. >> on-again, off-again ban is testing the patience of passengers. it is also presenting big challenges for security personnel at airports and also for airlines.
10:05 am
live in los angeles international airport, as you talk to passengers coming off of international flights is a something they're talking about? are things moving things moving smoothly as they did not last weekend? >> it's a big topic of discussion for everybody who is arriving internationally at lax. throughout the morning we steam seen a steady flow of international passengers and they say right now they're happy the ban has been suspended. they're scared it will go back into effect. everyone is confused. in fact, some people coming in from countries that were never banned to begin with said they were concerned about whether they would get into the country. we spoke with one family, the mom lived in los angeles, her son in mexico. he was flying. he was flying in from guadalajara. he was confused whether he would get in. take a listen to the mom who said she celebrated the fact that the ban has been lifted. >> that is good and i hope that it stays like that. and that we don't have any issues. i have a green card and i have been paying taxes for 20 some years.
10:06 am
>> as we're coming today we were afraid to have some problems with immigration solved. >> to help with the confusion, immigration attorneys are set up at lax, they been doing this 24/ seven around-the-clock to talk to anybody who has questions or is continuing to have questions. >> obviously so much is focusing on the seven countries. it is hard to know at any given time whether someone from the countries is coming into lax. have you been able to talk with anybody or is has anybody come in to test whether the ban has been lifted? or if the immigration officials are carrying out the judges order versus the presidents? >> the immigration attorneys we spoke with said they expect for
10:07 am
the immigrants to start coming in quickly, specially when you have 60,000 visas that are now active once again. in fact, this past thursday we saw the first immigrant who was sent back. the man who came in last friday from iran. he was turned around and sent back to iran. that was because of a judge's order. he was the first person to come back into the united states. he was states. he was welcomed here at lax by friends and family. take a listen. >> he could never imagine that his travels would become a part of an international news story. the only thing he wanted to do was to be reunited with his wife, my aunt and his brother, my father, and his son who he has not seen in 12 years. >> this comes after last weekend and last sunday we saw that thousands of protesters here at lax and airports across the country.
10:08 am
there is more protester out the course of today in los angeles. we are told that the protest will be a mix of president trump critics and supporters that are doing their own protest here today. >> back to you will, as those protest developed. >> president trump is spending his weekend at the winter white house in florida. he will attend to a white house gala hosted at his club. a protesters plan to march the palm beach, one of, one of several protest is expected across the u.s. today. steve harrigan is tracking it from palm beach. he joins us now. >> elizabeth, we expect protesters to start gathering here outside the trump plaza condominiums about four hours from now. they will march down the row behind me and tried to get as close as they can to the -- there some uncertainty about the protests. that's when
10:09 am
numbers began to swell, about 2000 people on thousand people on facebook, more seasoned organizers have taken control of the there are some security concerns about blocking off interested entrances and exits that's not true whether those will get to a mile in trumps club. and other u.s. schedules as all the where the vice president will be at several groups are planning to march today and tomorrow in houston trying to get a peek of the super bowl attention. protest as well overseas in several cities around the world including london where several thousand people marched through downtown london protesting not only u.s. immigration policy but also a possible visit from president trump to the u.k. or u.k. sometime this year. >> thank you so much.
10:10 am
>> join us here in houston from some insight into the travel ban and whether or not it makes us more safe at home. let's bring a former cia independent of homeland security official, chad. we're going to get to why you are wearing the most ridiculous atlanta falcons have to just a minute. in the meantime, some news. from president trump, here's a tweet we want to talk about. when a country is no longer able to say who can and cannot come in and out, especially for reasons of safety and security, big trouble. tweeted this morning when a judge overturned the ban. does he have a point #speemac he does have a point. it is a fundamental responsibility it is a fundamental responsibility of any government and the maintenance of its own borders and security. that fundamental point, most americans would agree with. how you implemented is a different story. i think what were seeing a play out in the courts is the back-and-forth of how that is going to be implement a. in the the end, even in the massachusetts courts which is no conservative court, they found it very different view.
10:11 am
this will have to be appealed to the most likely with a 14 mac four split on the supreme court we are in uncharted territory as to how it will end up. >> this is a constitutional issue when you have different courts disagreeing. at some level and you have been in charge of having to try to implement policy rather than talk about the politics of it, there's practicalities here. there are hundreds of thousands of people coming in every week through america's airports. there hundreds of thousands of custom border protection folks saying you are in or out. how do they follow the bouncing ball? >> it's difficult. when we had to implement the 311 rule which is still standing to this day, that was the result of a terrorist plot in the u.k. >> the ridiculousness of whether you could take liquids on or not. >> we that you have to train thousands aboard a patrol agents and custom officers. at the end of the day simple things like is a mascara liquid or solid? >> it's very important things that we are dealing with at the department of homeland security.
10:12 am
the other thing that you dealt with is things like this, like the the super bowl. these big national security events. give us a sense of what's going on behind the scenes? >> if you have ever been to disney, there's tons of security that goes on behind the scenes. i had a chance to tour today and said number of behind the scenes technologies and facilities. the stadium was built, it's one of the younger stadiums in the entire nfl. the technology that is here's implemented is providing not just physical security, but it is also providing cyber security. there's many folks monitoring open social media which is a great way to stay on top of things. they're encouraging others to be part of the effort. if you see something say something. you. you can do it online through or by many one of the local officers that are visibly there. >> you do get a sense that
10:13 am
there's an overwhelming police presence. this isn't even at the stadium. this is a few miles away where they are doing the nfl experience. give us a sense, we know that you have much worse access as you use to as far as your seats for tomorrow. although less stress. are we we in a unique situation here with the new president? with a new secretary of homeland security? or or is there enough infrastructure behind that group to bring through the necessary expertise and institutional knowledge for an event like this? >> one of the things that is great is the analogy i used is this is a bit like the pro bowl where you're taking all star athletes from every i area of government and even with the change of administration the law-enforcement community stays a solid and continues throughout. this is an event that has national security special event with extra resources brought to bear from all levels of government. this is going to be the pro bowl of that law-enforcement.
10:14 am
>> now we'll let her own fans back here decide. all happy with chad's atlanta falcons sure to say hello. >> patriot fans -- i knew that would work. >> we appreciate it. president trump nominated u.s. circuit court of appeals judge at neil gorsuch to the court this week. the the reaction was swift from the political world. they say judge a gore sick is too extreme. here is the president then add with their weekly address. >> judge neil gorsuch is the most qualified person to be nominated for this post. he has an impeccable resume. he is widely respected by everyone.
10:15 am
>> judge neil gorsuch has sided with corporations over the environment, the disabled and consumers. his. his record gives every american reason to be concerned that the basic protections to keep people safe, healthy, productive will be at risk if he is appointed to our nation's highest court.'s highest court. >> obviously two very different stances. here to help set the record straight is our panel of supreme court experts. elizabeth is the president of the constitutional accountability center. carrie is chief counsel and policy director for the judicial crisis network. thank you for joining us. everyone is hearing different opinions. elizabeth, i want to start with you. we have two different messages coming down from the senate who we need to approve this nominee. we hear chairman of the fiduciary committee say i have a
10:16 am
six-week timeline. i'm going to get everything past and he'll be passed through the senate in six weeks. and then you have senate democrats is who say we are not to meet with the nominee. what you predicted for the next six weeks? >> the fact that the senate republicans put on hold a supreme court nominee that was put forth by president obama for one year, to say that they have to rush this three is preposterous. there needs to be time to give a really careful review of judge of the threes record. neil gorsuch they need to make sure that there's a check on the executive branch, by the political branches. we see not donald trump does not like it when judges do things that he doesn't like. we saw that today when he called the so-called judge who is a george w. bush appointee, striking down a putting on hold rather president trump's travel and refugee band. we saw on the campaign trail when he criticize a judge when it was ruled against trumps business interest calling him out and criticizing him based on his mexican
10:17 am
american heritage. given that given that donald trump likes judges to do what he wants, judge neil gorsuch has a burden to show that he will uphold the tradition and doesn't do what the president wants them to do and doesn't follow a political agenda. >> okay you brought up merrick garland and i wanna hear your opinion that the court was a format - 4 vote. what will happen if they say a mac and bring in the nuclear option and have to deal with the filibuster. what happens to policies and decisions that come down? >> wilkin to new to see important cases going for - 4 - 4 - 4. obviously the choice of neil gorsuch was so smart. some of the things that we have seen the rollout is perfect and the choice is so clear. he has a
10:18 am
record specifically of what elizabeth has talked about. of standing up for the law regardless of how that aligns with his personal policy preferences. that's what he talked about in his opening statement when the president nominated him. if you're judging a home at the end of the day and every day say i love the love the results in those cases, you are doing it wrong. he knows it. that's that's why we have people like -- who was the attorney general who assayed it's fair and holding the rule of law. he is uniquely qualified to make those decisions. >> uniquely qualified and some some of these democrats voted for him in 2006. >> everyone voted for him. >> but that doesn't necessarily mean they're going to vote for him now for political reasons. >> not political reasons, is very different to be nominated for the supreme court then nominated to a lower court. first of of all, lower court judges are bound by precedent, by the supreme court. they don't set that precedent themselves. and also and also now we have a
10:19 am
record, along record from judge neil gorsuch who suggested maybe he's not ruling based on his view of the constitution but rather what he wants the constitution to say. we have a constitution that, over time has been amended to protect rights for, for example lgbtq americans. the 14th amendment says equal protection for all persons, yet we have writings from him that suggested that he thinks these are issues such not be settled in the court. while it is concerning when the constitution grants a right and it's an individual's right to going to court and vindicate that right and he thinks the blogs outside the judicial process. their concerns based on his record that were not there the first time he made it through the courts. but as i will have a will have a robust hearing, a lot of questions put to him. he will have to meet that burden to show that he is truly independent. >> thank you so much for joining us. am sure will have you back. we'll see if there's a decision
10:20 am
in the next six weeks. and now let's talk a little bit of football. the motivation motivation for tom brady and matt ryan tomorrow. we'll show you how these astronauts are giving the super bowl court aback a little bit of a run for their money. in the skies above houston, an exclusive look above and rt stadium. and all of the security preparations underway. and the stadium will not look so calm tomorrow as hundreds of thousands of people descend. some are here already. casey is here along with us as well. you can certainly feel the buzz. >> you can feel it everywhere you go. they say everything is a bigger in texas. judging from the look of things, the super bowl is no exception. up next will show you how some

10:26 am
straight to casey who joins us now with the very latest in houston. i saw you in the life he. a ton of energy and a ton energy and a ton of work. a very exciting weekend all around. >> it is exciting. we wish wish you were here with us. somebody has to hold on the fort there. it's safe to say the city of houston is attack congested at the moment. it's estimated 1,000,000 people are expected to not only attend the game, but all of the activities like leland was talking about. the talking about. the nfl experience, the concerts and parties. of course super bowl always brings the a listers to town. in the most wealthy. in fact, money is certainly flowing. we met up with a luxury real estate firm in houston this week who says the phone has been ringing off the hook. people looking for posh cabs to rent like this one. for a mere 35,000 dollars per
10:27 am
night, you heard that right, 35 grand per night, you can of the 7000 square-foot home at your disposal. 7000 square-foot home at your disposal. five beds, six baths, tennis court and pool. an acre and a half in an exclusive neighborhood, not far from all of the action. anyone with the dough can rent it out. at that that price point, let's just say it's geared toward a very specific clientele. >> we do have a lot of a listers looking at the properties. celebrities, entrepreneurs. those that want some privacy until want to deal with the crowds of the hotels and i don't want to be seen in the crowds. >> and boy, are there crowds with all the extra people here. traffic is a blast. when the super bowl is not in town, a lot of people don't know this but houston rings number 11 in the nation for worst congestion and gridlock.
10:28 am
for context, that is eight percentage points points of behind new york city. not a huge spread between houston and the big apple. then you mix in the visitors for super bowl lii and it is a bit a bit of a mess on the freeways. but were talking about the money, if you can spend 35k a night on a house, of house, of course there are companies here that offer chopper service to fly you to the stadium if you want to just go over the freeways. look at all of the people behind the wheel shaking their head. that too, bit pricey. >> at $35000 a night and helicopter trips are real life, right? >> it happens, not for someone like myself, but some people can absolutely do it. >> we will admire from afar. mu. >> if only casey was handling our logistics.
10:29 am

10:36 am
stadium. >> extending for 30 miles and up to 18,000 feet, aircrews call it the tfr. >> why is the flight exclusion so large? >> you're traveling around two or 3 miles per minute. they could cover three or four minutes in just a couple of minutes. we need time and that 30-mile rank gives us a buffer which allows us time to go out and id, track and intercept aircraft and the score them away. >> that's where they are crap women equipped with air to air radar there'll fly alongside to make radio contact or use hand signals. >> these exclusions to also includes a major refinery for chemicals. what is the threat there? >> the pepper chemical complex is the largest of the united states. it's considered a critical part of our infrastructure for natural resources flowing into the united states. we want to make sure that during game day and during the time it's in place that any aircraft are flying in this vicinity to

>> at thank you for having me. give us a sense, what what is the correct relation among these companies that is such a polarized political environment that we have now they're willing to go about making a political statement during the super bowl? >> for the most part most of the ads that will be running during the super bowl are pretty lighthearted and humorous as you saw with the kia ad. there are a couple that are taking a more cultural, political stance. most of them not intentionally. any time during the super bowl we have seen through the use it sort of the tone of the ad relate to what is going on in the country. this is no different this year. >> we've talked a couple of specific ads. there is a budweiser ad that were were told was actually created before, certainly before anything happening in terms of the inauguration. but may have been in the works before the november election about the founder budweiser making his way to
10:40 am
america and then to st. louis to start anheuser-busch. is there a risk for companies when even inadvertently you begin touching on political third rail's? >> there is always a risk of alienating a consumer. consumer. you have over 100 million people watching the super bowl. there's are is a risk if you make any pinnacle statement that you're going to alienate some of your consumers. i think budweiser was interesting because they wanted to go out with a story of the american dream and working hard to reach your goals. that's what their background was. and they said were gonna go with our origin story which is also an immigration story. inadvertently they end up did hitting a political nerve. i don't think that was the intention going into it. >> as you make a point, in america today there is an inexhaustible fountain of outreach to be found. something can find a reason a reason to be offended or upset about just
10:41 am
about anything. how do these ads come about? are they focus groups crush more of a test a? how are executives making the decision of what they're going to start $5 million on. like the avocado for mexico ad. how many times they go through that and say what will offend too many what will make people laugh? >> is a labor us process that starts as early as the end of the last super bowl. if you know you're going to be in the super bowl in 2018 you're probably going to start talking about these things as early as march. they go through many different creative and conversations about the creative. it's about the tone of the company and what told the company wants to take. if there's a more humorous tone and really what the brand story is. it's about about telling a story not just selling a product during the super bowl. >> we've seen that in these narrative ads. this year we have the first live super bowl ad. we would show you a clip of it but it has not happened yet from snickers. is that the most risky of them all?
10:42 am
>> it's really exciting and definitely comes with a risk. people will be waiting to see what happens. anything can happen go in my. every year advertisers are looking to one up themselves like is at $5 million is what they're spending. they need to make a splash. snickers doing this is a way to test that and to see if they can stand out among all the noise that is going on this week. >> then all of a sudden you somehow hit gold or you hope for and come up with an iconic ads, the budweiser poppies or fedex with their test screen that we all remember. the applet, janine, we'll look to on monday for which one of the ads actually may have turned a good investment on that $5 million. >> thank you so much. great avenue. >> all eyes may be on the weather in houston but a good portion of the west is preparing for some rain and snow. we have a meteorologist in the weather center with the very
10:43 am
latest. >> hello. there are several things were paying attention to. the super bowl may be being the biggest one. it will be warming up for folks in texas, running up to about 70 degrees for kickoff. that's at 630 so temperatures in the upper seventies. we see a small chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. this is not good to be a big washout. some of the storms are popping up in eastern texas. not eastern texas. not a widespread washout but a good idea. that area to keep an umbrella handy. will they have the dome open? they haven't made the decision yet. were getting into portions in the upper peninsula. there's a bigger system in northern california and washington and inland were seen snow. quickly, we can see anywhere from 1 foot to 2 feet of snow in the cascades in northern rockies on monday morning. that's a system where paying attention to. >> thank you so much. we appreciate it.

10:49 am
this is just going to allow banks and financial institutions to put us right back in the same spot we were in could possibly lead to another repeat of the financial crisis, what is your reaction? >> the fact of the matter is the dodd frank bill, even if it had been enacted ten years ago would not have prevented the crisis of 2008 and 2009. that was a combination of a weak dollar, bad housing policies it that encourage these crazy mortgages that got so many banks and borrowers in trouble. it was a prescription, cure for something that was not there. what it has done dodd frank is increase the cost of banking, especially for small banks who have to hire all the compliance officers and bureaucrats. and they're not making the loans they should to small businesses. >> so does this go with president campaign's message? you love critics who say he says he wants to drain the swamp but he has wall street and his
10:50 am
cabinet. they'll point to steve minasian, and others. does this go with his message? >> it does. one what you have to get the economy movie is having the credit markets and banking markets work again. so small and new businesses, even medium-size businesses can get access to reliable and affordable credit. right now credit can be very expensive. it's unreliable. that is one reason my more businesses are closing the doors and opening doors. it's one reason why job creation, why you still up tens of millions of people especially on the sidelines. we need to get the economy moving. one way to get it moving is to get the banking system and financial system working the way it should. that means taken at some of the crazy regulations. >> okay we'll be right back after the break with more. the computer is computers going to cut us off if we don't. i'll be happy to have you back ss built with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one.
10:51 am
with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet?

10:55 am
i want to bring in the border tax and i know you have discussed it frequently and he signed a piece on it. the president tweeted this morning and he wrote in part, countries charge u.s. companies taxes or tariffs while the u.s. charges them nothing her little. we little. we should charge them same as they charge us. i read an article that you felt pretty strongly about the border tax. can you break it down for us for viewers at home? >> a certain republicans certain republicans in congress are proposing a tax on imports that would hurt working americans and middle-class americans, 20% sales tax and raise the price of gasoline 30 cents a gallon. raise the price you pay for car and what you buy for walmart or target, and other stores. so the tax cut should just be a tax cut not putting on a new tax which is going to hurt american consumers. that would hurt the economy. >> are consumers going to be seen higher prices on things? >> this tax would mean higher
10:56 am
prices. anything that comes and whether it's refining for oil or gasoline, stuff you buy at walmart and other stores, they would have a 20% sales tax. that would hurt working americans. people making 30, 40, 50, $60000 a year would be hurt the mouse. republicans say they need the tax to have other kinds of tax cuts. i think they should follow the example of ronald reagan and john kennedy and go for a p or tax-cut both on the business side and personal side. don't put in a new tax. >> organ have to leave it there but a viewers want more information your piece is online. thank you for joining us. >> it is good to be with you. thank you. >> still had, look in my vet anti- trump protesters who have cheered a courtroom victory blocking a controversy all travel ban. the fight is not over yet. we'll have the president's response when we come back. if you head to the bank and wait to get approved for a mortgage,
