>> i think the right-wing of the democratic party will vote for impeachment -- what we really want the government to do is focus on things that matter in their daily lives like keeping the economy growing, the cost of health care, educating their children, those sorts of things, so my guess is there are a fair number of moderates out there that if you put truths, let's try and reach a deal here, logistically some advantage because folks in iowa expected to be there, same thing with folks in new hampshire, it'll help with the margins, those candidates who are currently in the united states senate, but i don't think it's a decisive advantage because there's political add we aretizing, i think the folks in both of the states are sophisticated enough to know why the senators can't be there.

>> welcome back, fox business alert, americans shelling out billions of dollars and more expected today since it is cybermonday. carley: joining us live to weigh in former chief economist for u.s. international trade commission and university of maryland professor pete morici. peter, if you look at the numbers, thanksgiving and black friday sales are up over a -- around a billion dollars each, little bit less for thanksgiving sales, so what does it say about the economy and why are people spending so much now? >> they have confidence in the trump economy and it's that simple, the consumer confidence numbers, they don't just say are they confident, what's the job's outlook, how do you feel about
2:15 am
inflation, how do you feel about the future, very important indicater and they are indicating positively, investors, the stock market has changed, more and more investors and a lot of us ordinary folks are investors moving to what are called cyclal stocks and outlook is 10% gain and finally, there's been a shift in the polls, mr. trump was lagging behind the principal democratic candidates until about a month ago. rob: yeah. >> now he's running about even, depends on which one you pick, one ahead by a point and the other behind by a point, he wins the electorate college big, the shift in voting behavior at this point in the cycle generally indicates improving confidence and satisfaction with the
2:16 am
economy. these are good numbers about how people feel when you listen to an economist from new york tell you the world is coming to an end because of his tariffs ask them where the inflation is and whether or not he voted for hillary. rob: it is interesting to see the poll numbers change. yeah, it was before, any generic democrat was going to beat the president by 8 or 10 points and that has really changed. >> not just generic, if you ask them joe biden versus donald trump. rob: yeah, he has a good chance or better chance than he did. i talked to wall street guys in new york they say that it's a cycle, every time we get a big-booming economy, it's a cycle, at some point the cycle does end doesn't matter how good he's for the economy, this thing has been running since 2008, 2009, how long does this go? >> the world changed around 1990 when it came to business cycles, before that, if the world war ii
2:17 am
through 1990 there's a natural clock inside the economy, eventually recoveries ran themselves to ground, now big policy mistake to break a recovery or regulatory incompetence with what happens, for example, the financial crisis, that was regulatory incompetence and the reason is that we no longer reliant on agriculture and manufacturing for most of the economy which have nature. it's kind of lethargic, everybody that needs a car has got 3, they cannot raise car sales no matter what they, do toyota, had to give them away for you to plant another one in your driveway. but we don't depend on that so much anymore, so it really takes somebody to do do something stupid, the people that say what you just said are reading from textbook around 1985.
2:18 am
rob: okay. >> remember a lot of the people that you consider on wall street went to school around then and have been trading stocks, they don't study economics. carley: that's my favorite book, i can't believe you just mentioned it. >> oh, really? carley: president trump in london for nato meetings, he will ask other countries to increase defense spending like in years past, do you think he has a point there and will he even mutually get germany in particular to pony up the money? >> the more it looks like trump will be reelected the more it sinks in, the thing that you have to understand about europe, it's not just that they don't like mr. trump and back and forth and all that business, but macron and merkel don't get along, macron see it is handwriting on the long he realizes europe has to rearm, he understand what the russian bears looks like, but merkel, she's antitrump, antiamerican
2:19 am
president, she's been saying no to 3 to 4 american presidents, she's been there 13 years, she's going in the next year or two, at that point we might get some real progress because honestly, without france and germany, you know, it doesn't mean a lot. rob: team up on china as well, another big issue that we will talk about another time. take care. carley: 19 minutes after the hour, nearly two dozen dead including officers as bullets fly at the border between cartel members and police and there's an update on that american mormon family that was massacred just last month, a live report next. >> and paving the president, the exfbi lawyer known for her antitrump texts with her lover, remember peter strzok, she breaks her silence for the first time, coming up - [spokeswoman] meet the ninja foodi pressure cooker,

cash car welcome back 3, people deneighborhood connection to the massacre of an american mormon family. rob: méxico announcing the arrests hours after 21 people including police officers were killed in a cartel shootout. carley: aishah with the latest on the border. >> that's right, we do know at least 3 people are in custody suspected of playing some kind of role in november massacre, 3 women and 6 children were slaughtered on november 4th, they were part of mormon community living in méxico, authorities there say they were caught in the cross fires of a feud going on between two drug
2:24 am
cartels, family members reacting to the news about the arrest, listen. [speaking in spanish] >> so the violence continues in méxico just hours before that arrest, 4 police officers and at least 17 others were killed in an hour-long gun battle with mexican drug cartel near border, cartel stormed the small town of villanueva, governor of coahuila stated, they tried to get in
2:25 am
coahuila, today they got in by force and nothing what we have seen in a long time, as méxico's murder rate reaches historic highs doubts growing whether president obrador can control cartels there, on friday he thanked president trump for support and promised méxico will fulfill its responsibility to get justice, carley, rob. carley: horrific story there, thank you. >> but if you want neglect this race, if you want my voice and my message which is resinating, then i need help, i'm running on individual contributions and that what's we need to keep doing. >> andrew yang raised $750,000 in 24 hours which is a little less than 2 weeks to go until the december primary debate, 6 candidates have qualified so far, you see their faces right there. rob: that includes senator amy
2:26 am
klobuchar, ready to make her case to the american people and billionaire mike al bloomberg doesn't have a chance after entering the race late. >> i don't buy this argument that you get in because you say everyone else sucks, i just don't, i think we have strong candidates, i don't think that any of the polling or the numbers show that people are dissatisfied with all the candidates, they are trying to pick the right one. rob: everybody insecure after bloomberg entering race. all right, fox news alert now, the convicted terrorist who carried out the deadly attack on the london bridge was released from jail early and there are dozens more that britain is about to let go, ryan marro weighs in on that coming up next. carley: also licensed, locked and unloaded, the supreme court hearing a major gun right's case that could actually expand rights, the second amendment showdown kicking off today

2:28 am
2:29 am
2:30 am
carley: fox news alert, british prime minister boris johnson confirming there are dozens of terrorists set to be released in uk as we learn more about the london bridge terror attack. >> it was because of automatic early release this individual was out on the streets that allowed him to be released automatically have been served only 8 years. he was probably about 74. >> wow, isis claiming responsibility for friday's attack reportedly as payback for the death of abu bakr al-baghdadi, so what happens if more are released? automatic early release. the families of the two victims
2:31 am
them to thank for they their loved victims are dead now, ryan, can you hear us? >> i'm sorry, there's a little bit of a delay. rob: no problem. >> you have isis declaring responsibility for the attack and the obvious analysis is that well, that means isis is still alive and gives them momentum for a much bigger reason, makes the west look stupid because if you're a member of isis or someone just teetering on the edge of deciding whether isis is the team that you want to join, you are going to say the caliphate has been destroyed in terms of territorial control, the west might be overwhelming powerful in terms of military but look at how stupid they are, they release convicted terrorists early in order to come back and carry out another attack. so if you're a sporter of you haddist cause how can we possibly lose against the system that's so stupid and has that much of a weakness built into
2:32 am
it. >> we know that the isis caliphate has been destroyed but then isis announces that they claim responsibility for this terror attack through their news agency so there has to be some sort of headquarters for them for lack of a better term, how much of the threat is this terrorist organization now and how organized are they. >> they are mobilizing out because a lot of the prisoners broke out in prisons in syria, as long as they have a website or a telegram channel going they can argue that they can still exist, the bigger more dangerous shift that you could see are people who support the jihadist cause, isis lost, maybe they went too far in what they were doing, what's the other group i'm going to join, and so you have alternatives to isis like al-qaeda's branch in syria that's building an army and as soon as they have a little bit of success, we are back to
2:33 am
square one, just a little bit of success results in a huge wave of recruits because it's interpreted as allah's blessing, we are only one defeat on the battlefield away from going right back to where we were when we panicked on oh rise of isis. rob: let the turks come in, worried about isis regaining territory, what was going to happen with the kurds, the u.s. and the kurds are still fighting isis to this day in a report that came out a few days ago, do you think that's the right move for the president to backtrack on the decision and keep our guys in there fighting? >> quite frankly the united states has to have strategy against erdogan, turkey, yes, i know turkey is a member of nato, but if you look at the rhetoric of turkish officials they are talking as if they are at war
2:34 am
with the united states, not only the kurds that they're fighting against, they attacking christians and christians are left out of media coverage and it's really infuriating. carley: ryan, thank you so much, complicated issue, thanks for breaking it down. >> thank you. rob: all right, manhunt intensifies for a gunfire that opened fire in new orleans leaving 10 people hurt, 2 in critical condition, witnesses say the city was overwhelmingly crowded as hundreds of thousands of people gathered in the french quarter for the bayou game. >> today supreme court will hear arguments in case that could have major implications on second amendment, new york city ordinance which forced residents to keep handguns within city limits, residents challenged the ruling arguing they want to take outside of the city, the supreme court has not heard a gun
2:35 am
right's case in nearly a decade. rob: exfbi lawyer who sent antitrump messages to special agent boyfriend is speaking out, lisa page tells the daily beast in part when the president accuses you of treason by name despite the fact that i know there's no fathomable that i have committed any crime at all let alone treason, he's still somebody in the position to do something about that to try and further destroy my life. page exchanged those antitrump text messages with former fbi counterintelligence agent peter strzok, she served on the former special counsel bob mueller's team before resigning in 2018. remember the talk about a backup plan? rob: sure do. now to fox business alert, cybermonday is underway, today's online shopping frenzy is expected to be the biggest ever, likely to reach more than $10 billion, this comes after a record-breaking black friday,
2:36 am
shoppers spent $7.4 billion online, black friday brick and mortar sales were up about 4%. good numbers across the board. rob: certainly is, 35 minutes after the hour, phase 2 of impeachment is about to begin. >> their refusal to hold this president accountable is troubling to me and i believe it's troubling to the american people. >> he's been accused of something that has not been proven in the least that only occurs when you this type of circus. rob: we will break down what will happen this week and what you can expect on what the president is calling a circus, that debate coming up in the case. carley: he really swept her off her feet, the romantic moment gone way wrong. i'm finding it hard to stay on top of things a faster laptop could help. plus, tech support to stay worry free. worry free...boom

2:40 am
carley: deadly winter storm hammering the northeast, snow, sleet moving up the coast after pummeling the states, the weather is complicating travel, robert, it's going to be a sticky one out there. >> carley, good morning, yes, the conditions have worsen here in orange county, we are on freeway, light snow is falling, we are under winter storm in orange county, 6 to 12-inches before all of this is said and done, no mart how you try to get around this holiday weekend, it's been a rough -- hundreds of flights canceled all around the country, thousands more delayed, so air travel has been bad, also getting around on the roads has not been much more fun, this awful accident in niagara falls
2:41 am
in new york has semi toppled on top of a car and also we saw this 58-car pileup in maryland, we are told that at least 10 people were hospitalized and as this storm moves east ward into new york city, the city is at the ready, 700 plus salt spreaders have been deployed, also 1500 plows will hit the roads if 2 or more inches of snowfalls later today, back to you. carley: stay safe out there, looks like you're still in transit. rob: later today house intelligence members will review adam schiff's explosive ukraine report with vote on it scheduled for tomorrow, so what should we expect in phase 2 of the impeachment hearings, here to debate that democratic strategist kevin and republican strategist holly turner. kind of confusing how this stuff
2:42 am
works to the layman, the house intel members expected to view a draft of the impeachment report, they will get their eyes on this final report after we heard all of that testimony, then tuesday that same committee will vote on that report and then they will send everything to the house judiciary committee which is going to hold their hearing on wednesday which is constitutional lawyers talking about whatever impeachment is in their eyes, let me start with you, holly, the president says this process has been unfair to him, do you agree? >> of course, it has been unfair, we have the democrats in the house working, operating outside of the president, completely outside of precedent and there's been no due process, i agree with the president not participating in this part, come in and be heard, it's too late
2:43 am
at this point, so the president is right to stay out of this and i think we will see even lower ratings for the hearings than we saw for the last round of hearings, the american people just don't care anymore. rob: big one on wednesday, interesting to see if they can make that more interesting for people. kevin, i suspect that you disagree with holly? >> i do. the president requested from the the get-go, democrats passed that, he has every right to defend himself with the white house attorney by the house democrats, he has chosen not to do that, right, because i think as many americans believe what he did is indefensible, so when you can't defend your actions, you to attack the process which is what the president and his administration is doing. rob: the white house is denying, well, has denied nadler has given the invitation for them to come to this week's hearing, we
2:44 am
cannot fairly to be expected in hearing while witnesses are yet to be named and unclear whether the judiciary committee will afford the president a fair process through additional hearings, holly, democrats say that the president have obstructed the process by keeping people like mulvaney and john bolton from testifying, that's their side, what do you think? >> they are not using obstruction in the legal sense just to be clear, he's not violated the law by doing this, this is well within executive privilege to exercise this right and i would argue that the democrats are the ones that have been obstructing this process by not allowing him, look, it's important for the president to not just be heard but his -- his attorneys should have the opportunity to question the witnesses themselves, i mean, we are asking for nothing more than what every other american has the right to have in any sort of proceeding in this country, criminal or civil. rob: kevin, we have the nato conference this week, the
2:45 am
president will be in england, this is having to move so fast and having to do that while he's overseas, a lot of people say it's not appropriate, what do you say? >> i think the process needs to play out, he's given every opportunity to holly's point to defend himself with white house attorney present representing him, agrees actually with congressman, the republican on the house judiciary committee, rob, to your point, that has said, let's hear from the acting chief of staff mick mulvaney and let's hear from rudy giuliani, and the folks can exonerate the president, no quid pro quo, let's have the people come forward and testify in an open setting. rob: okay, interesting to hear from both sides, kevin, holly, appreciate your time. >> thanks, rob. carley: time now 45 minutes after the hour, is the left dominating pop culture? alex thinks so, the turning point spokesperson said it's time for conservatives to take back the seat at the table, she
2:46 am
explains how next. rob: first we will check in with brian kilmeade to see what's coming up on "fox & friends", nice tease of the program. >> somewhere it'll fit in between and be acceptable, carley accept everything i do, rob does not, we will talk about that in the break and interoffice memo, let me tell you what's on tap, we are bragging, secretary mike pompeo live, how does he feel about developments in iran, how does he feel about developments in iraq as well as the president of the united states going over to nato with the wind at his back internationally. then impeachment, the sequel, ranking member of house judiciary committee will be front in center, doug collins, within man who talks faster than me will be here live and stuart varney will be here, he claims to know a lot about business, i think he's right, you will make the final judgment at home. plus retired u.s. marine and former nfl player and he turning now to candidate for congress in california. jeremy is here and taking on

[laughter] >> ukraine, russia. that's enough, that's enough, they'll do anything for this man. >> does he ever do any actual president work, seems or is it all rallies and tweets now?
2:51 am
carley: joining us the author of this op-op ed, turning point usa alex clark, you say that the left has hijacked pop culture and you want conservatives to take a seat back at the table, please explain. >> i do, so if you think about it, the left has dominated over the years, they own everything, they own hollywood, they own tv, movies, music, they even own sports now, we are seeing political messages in sports and i like most people, why can't we have entertainment without pop culture, i'm sorry, our entertainment without politics infused but unfortunately the left has really decided that that's not going to be the case so conservatives are to blame here, we wanted to be the nice guy for far too long and we've let them kind of take over, now more than ever with a pop culture president in office, this is really our time to take a seat back at the pop culture table. carley: how do you think conservatives can achieve that, though, all celebrities are
2:52 am
