9:00 am
maria: thanks for being with us. "varney and company" begins now. stuart: good morning everyone. a lot of people bought the dip. that is a successful strategy. it is followed by a bounce back. the dow jones industrial average dropped 700 points, and the bounce continues this morning. the dow completely regained all of its lost ground this week,
9:01 am
s&p slightly higher but the nasdaq slightly lower. another bounce back, the cryptos, bitcoin hit 25,$000, today and 31-5. there will be an online the word discussion today featuring jack dorsey and crypto enthusiast kathy would. investors are looking for an encouraging headline. crypto up today. a big vote on infrastructure. the bipartisan $1 trillion package, senator mcconnell says republicans won't folk for a bill when they don't know what is in it. does that remind you of this. >> have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.
9:02 am
stuart: it was irresistible, that is what senator schumer is saying and then we will figure out what is in it. on today's program, and comparing their flight to an escape from slavery. and to far left activist van jones and a celebrity chef. they can use that money for their own charities and spread it around. we will show your book authored by donald trump and signed to rudy giuliani which will sell at auction for 30,$000 or a lot more. it is wednesday july 21st, 2021, "varney and company" is about to begin.
9:03 am
stuart: sixth avenue new york city. a bit more traffic beginning to pick up. it is better than july of 2020. a morning, everybody. check futures, mixed position, the dow is up 150 points, if it opens like that, completely erased monday's loss, all right, tepper, i can't believe it. if you bought the dip you did well. my question actually is is this bounce back for real this time?
9:04 am
>> i think so. if you bought the dip for the last 10 years it has worked. i can say the past hundred plus years it has worked and a simple question investors need to ask is no matter what your time horizon is, 5 years, 10 years depending how old you are, do i think the market will be higher today or tomorrow, if the answer to that question is yes you should be buying the dip. the new rally is sustainable. market will trade sideways over the past couple months. the bull market is over -- stuart: i take issue with this age thing. i'm in my 70s, don't know how long i've got left. the stock market investments, should i sell a little bit of it now to lock it in, lock in that profit, as long as i've got the money --
9:05 am
>> about half of one%, we know her interest rates are. there is no alternative. even at 70, we are planning to age 90, 95 which we do for a lot of our clients, still 25 years for you to make sure you've got enough cash, enough investments, when you finally do venture to the next stage of your life. stuart: what happens if there's a nasty correction 6 months from now and i pass away shall we say? my heirs are left with very little. lauren is sitting next to me groaning about my suggestion of passing away.
9:06 am
but you youngsters don't understand the time frame. you don't. >> there is absolutely nothing wrong, sitting on a bit of cash. the equity strategy, i am comfortable holding 10% cash because the way i feel as if there's a 10% pull back over the next year which we haven't seen one this year and that is weird because the normal pull back in a given year is 13% or so, we've seen this, i'm sitting on dry powder because i want to take advantage of opportunities if they present themselves. stuart: i should not be selling any portion of my stuff right now. hang in for the next 5, 15, 20 years. you are confident that i can do that, are you, tepper? >> you will be all right. >> i will outlive you.
9:07 am
stuart: i doubt it. you're a great guy, and a diplomat too. >> don't be so morbid next time i am on. we can't do that at 9:00 in the morning. stuart: very true. the producers have been saying that in my ear for the last 2 and a half minutes. thanks for being with us. we will see you again. at least i hope so. please please please. johnson & johnson report second-quarter earnings, stock is up, they did well. lauren: they raise their for your guidance. stuart: keep you around. lauren: you might need some medical devices and drugs. 63%. people returned to the doctor after covid. 13 million americans jabbed with the vaccine so far, the forecast for vaccine sales this year $2.5 billion but then there's the nyu study bj and today vaccine is less effective. delta is responsible for 83% of

9:09 am
added subscriptions of 275,$000. stuart: $56 on verizon. harley-davidson reported this morning, sales increased, up 24% and in north america sales went up 43%, stock is up 93% since the beginning of the year, a little more now, one%, 44 on harley and the ticker symbol is hard up one%. bitcoin, and it is up today because we have jack dorsey and kathy arce getting together with this be word conference. are investors -- >> the timing is excellent.
9:10 am
they will get more institutions on board with bit line. so many concerns about the energy it uses. they are talking about it today and look at the level of 31,000, holding above it today. some people are saying, it has been such an oversold market down from the 65,000 high over the spring and it will come up a little bit. the levels you want to watch 32,000, the barricade 24. stuart: they need more adoption by major league institutions to be used more like a currency. >> that is one of the goals of the b word conference today but when you have institutional support, you have regulations that comes with it and that will impact the prices. stuart: 35-5 makes you speak.
9:11 am
a historic event and you saw it here, jeff bezos blasted into space, blasted after shelling out $200 million to a cnn contributor and celebrity chef. we have details, full story coming up later. alexandria ocasio cortez cannot figure out why parents are fighting back against critical race theory. watch this. >> why don't republicans want us to learn how to not be racist? why don't republicans want kids to know how to not be racist? stuart: we will show you the full clip later in the show and get into it too. check those features one more time, develop 140, nasdaq down 30, more varney after this.

9:17 am
>> a new revenue stream requires a lot of money and time, it happens when their main business of streaming is flowing down because competition is growing. netflix projected 3 million new subscribers, so disappointing for wall street but with the pandemic and everybody sitting on the couch, they pulled slower, and they are pushing into games they already know they are doing, it makes sense but should they stick to streaming content. stuart: serious competition by getting into different areas that enhance your bottom line. >> going against major tech giants, and sony and the console makers as well.
9:18 am
>> one of the question, content. they were starved it for content during the pandemic because the couldn't shoot new episodes but are they coming back strong? >> in this quarter web. estimates they have 42 original shows and movies alone, they continue to pour a lot of money. 42 original shows. >> i binged through each one. but they spent so far this year, netflix spent $8 billion just this year on new content, that is 40% more than the same timeframe last year. >> how many streaming services will we have the consensus is four but people are cutting down on that number, we will keep netflix and one or 2 other streaming services and so many out there, people going to cut this way? >> i don't think i have an answer for you. do we have jim anderson with us? jim anderson, the ceo of social
9:19 am
flow. big question, big picture post pandemic, are we going to continue to stream and increase our streaming? >> without a doubt streaming is on the way up, netflix's big tailwind, streaming is only less than 25% of the total market, most television consumption is conditional on your tv and netflix can grow by taking market share from traditional tv but they have huge competitors, going up against disney plus, apple tv, a raft of well-funded competitors, makes the wish for the days when all they had to compete with was blockbuster video. stuart: if they are getting into gaming, use the expression a hail mary, would you consider gaming for netflix a hail mary?
9:20 am
>> i think it is brilliant. i have no idea if they will be successful with gaming per se because it is a hard business but it is the right strategy. the way amazon got me to sign up for amazon prime so i could get overnight or today groceries and start giving me video what sense did that make and look what amazon prime and prime video has become. the bundle is a huge advantage and that, the best gaming service, the most convenient gaming service, then reduce churn, a huge issue for anything and jack up the price. that is a path for success. stuart: is there any metric you could use that allows the most popular streaming service. what is the most popular?
9:21 am
do we know? >> we don't know. those who were not judged as popular don't like the neilsen methodology. we have two different measures, what is the most popular this week. looking at more traditional television measures of ratings which are built around advertising, we don't need to play that game. there is a real measurement challenge, streaming specifically and that is one of the, netflix is not going to talk about shows like that, they talk about hits but what about the ones that are not doing well? stuart: file me have one streaming service and that is netflix. i watch the financial news, all
9:22 am
that lot together i watch more netflix than that lot. >> netflix is a clear category leader, the biggest concern is disney plus, that is a formidable competitor but i am pretty. on netflix long-term prospects. stuart: bullish on netflix long-term. thanks for joining us. apple making news this morning. stock is down a little bit. >> on their iphones were 5g capable and the cheapest phone they have launching in the new year, they are going all in even the cheap phones. or of affordable.

stuart: i'm going to call it about back for the dow, 720 points lost monday and we have come all the way back and opened this morning with 178 points, we will have the race all of monday's loss. the market wait another three minutes to open up this morning. to me it looks like there is a contest going on between worries over adult ovarian spreading which is the negative compared to the extraordinary profits we are seeing from corporations and that is a positive. how do we balance this out? >> there has been this tug-of-war in the stock market, the bond market, the fear is the delta variant is going to
9:28 am
create another round of lockdown and that finance on the other side, fed chair powell is going to keep interest rates near 0 forever in the foreseeable future in which case the valuation multiples a high and some areas of the economy, what is happening during the pandemic largely is technology. stuart: i am reading between the lines, you don't see this long-running rally coming to a end in the immediate future, do you? >> hard to get just the garden-variety correction, from 10% to 20% let alone much more than 5%, so much liquidity in the system. what happened on monday the delta variant scared people and bond yields coming down which
9:29 am
spooked investors in the stock market figuring what does the bond market no we are not seeing in earnings and then tuesday and this morning looks like everybody decided the fundamentals are still great. they keep being too low on earnings numbers and now looking for second-quarter earnings to be up 66% on a year over year basis with actual numbers that have come in a couple weeks ago, the analyst consensus was 60%. stuart: up 66% compared to the same period last year. not a great comparison because the same period last year was pretty depressed. >> on a year-over-year basis the estimates keep going up, rolling up expectations, 66% is very good because a few months ago it was 40%. stuart: i should not sell any of my stock because if i did sell where what i put the money? is that the answer? >> that is part of it and the other part is you have to
9:30 am
believe a recession is coming and that would probably require you to be a virologist and believe the delta variant is not only going to create a lot of risk for people who haven't been vaccinated even people like myself who worry the variants that are coming aren't going to be held off so maybe it is time to hold back. stuart: two seconds to go and trading will begin and i predict a triple digit gain for the dow from "the opening bell" and that is what we've got. in the first couple seconds 176 points, 30,690. the all-time record high for the dow is just above 30,000 so you're not far from the record high and the left-hand side of the screen if you look at the dow stocks the majority of them are clearly in the green and
9:31 am
going up so now we are at 160 points for the dow, almost half of one%. the s&p 500 almost opening higher to the tune of one third of one%, the nasdaq composite opening with a gain of 0.06%. look big tech, this is why the nasdaq is not doing well. all of them down, none of them seriously lower. netflix reported late yesterday, this morning stock is down 3 quarters of one%, moderna goes to the s&p 500 today, replaces election pharmaceuticals, it is down today, this is because stock has had an extraordinary run-up, into the s&p 500. supposedly reported earnings late yesterday, up 5%, chipotle did well from the reopening.
9:32 am
>> if you look at dining room sales, 70%, and another double digit gain basically half of all sales at the restaurant and shares now at an all-time high. stuart: the take away business is huge. >> they expect that to die down because more people are eating at their dining rooms but it is very strong right now. stuart: united airlines did well up 2% and yesterday we reported it was 2.1 million travelers hit the tsa checkpoints, almost back to leisure travel level before covid. that is obviously doing united a lot of good. lauren: 1.9 million yesterday,
9:33 am
management is so confident in the future of travel despite delta. people might scratch their head, if everyone is talking about these variants why are they so confident? they are looking at future bookings. the demand is there. this is a major reopening play. revenue under $5 billion, reporting a loss but they have data and they are saying travel is coming back and jet fuel costs are going up. fuel was cheap for a while but 67% rise in the past year, at some point when you are still reporting losses that can hurt you. stuart: the killer is they look to the future and see bookings going through the roof and that is future revenue and that is why the stock, the rest of the airlines -- lauren: delta international traveler, we are seeing is, american was up 8% yesterday, up another one.6% today. this is the reopening play strong again. stuart: strong again. lauren: what headline is going to make you a little disappointed or nervous one day and that temporary dip and
9:34 am
people come back the next day. stuart: we've got who? cruise lines. what are we going on cruise lines? lauren: disney is down, carnival is up 4%, we will take it again reopening, travel stocks are higher. stuart: take a look at the dow winners, show you what is moving, coca-cola reported strong earnings, so did verizon and they are at the top of the active list of the dow 30 stocks. s&p winners into public, i see chipotle up there, a 7% gain, carnival in there with a 4% gain, revert to normal stocks. the reopening stocks. nasdaq winners, nvidia, they've gone through their stock split. they were at $800 and came down 200 and dropped a little bit but they are back up again 189
9:35 am
on nvidia as we speak. big names report after the bell this afternoon. whirlpool. >> connected to the housing market, expecting their report card to show a 24% increase in revenue to $5 billion in earnings to more than double. the other one is las vegas, 1300% increase in revenue, that is the expectation. stuart: year on year. >> nobody was traveling in 2020 analysis ferocious demand to travel so that is a major reopening play we are watching today. stuart: reports from vegas that it is packed just like the good old days. >> penned up demand. stuart: check the big board, 5 minutes wednesday morning up 190 points, half of one%. all of monday's loss gone. they erased it. look at the 10 year treasury moving up to one.27%, very

9:37 am
all-time and we have this super spreader event. >> the white house is the epicenter of a dangerous coronavirus epidemic. stuart: now that the shoe was on the other foot the media and left are basically silence. they will not call the fleeing democrats superspreaders. we will make something of that in my take next hour. sales skyrocketing but origin is set for two more human missions this year. the details our next. ♪♪ light my fire ♪♪ we are thrilled we finally found our dream home in the mountains. the views are great, the air is fresh.

scamming stormy daniels. quite a fall for a celebrity lawyer, once touted or floated by cnn as a presidential candidate. stuart: that is quite a fall. that really is. william, thank you very much. see you again soon. then there is this, congressman eric swalwell, a democrat accused of having ties to a chinese spy among other things, allegedly he spent tens of thousands of campaign dollars on luxury items. ashley, what did he spend the money on? ashley: all sorts the goodies. how about limo services, luxury hotels, high-end restaurants, alcohol delivery services? there is a nice list for you. according to federal election commission records reviewed by fox news swalwell spent more than $10,000 of campaign funds on 26 limo rides. more than $26,000 on luxury hotels with more than 20,000 of that going to the ritz-carlton in half moon bay in california.
10:46 am
an absolutely gorgeous part of the country. oh, by the way the congressman's wife used to work there. fec records reveal the california democrat's campaign spent $7,000 in luxury restaurants and steakhouses in d.c. it is good to be king. swalwell along with his wife and other members of the congress traveled to qatar on all expensed paid trip bankrolled by the u.s.-qatar business council. there you go. how you spend some of your campaign money apparently. stuart: like avenatti, swalwell was an outspoken and outrageous critic of president trump in the same boat. you've got this story that the hearing on the delta variant, it took a turn yesterday with senator paul and dr. fauci called each other liars. that is pretty strong stuff, ash. you want to take us through it? ashley: yeah. it got ugly. it happened at a senate hearing. by the way there has been a long-running feud between
10:47 am
dr. fauci and senator paul and it bubbled over again when the senator questioned fauci's previous testimony claiming that the u.s. has not funded gain of function research in china. rand says a research pape shows u.s. money had gone to hazardous and controversial research. listen to the exchange. >> this paper that you are referring to was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain of function. you do not know what you are talking about. >> the gain of function research was going on in that lab and you are obfuscating the truth. >> if anybody is lying here, senator, it is you. ashley: okay. there you go, senator paul went on to accuse fauci of dancing around the issue because he is trying to obscure responsibility. fauci says he has never lied to congress. as i say, that is a long-running
10:48 am
feud between those two. stuart: it is. getting ugly too. again on a related note. we know now the effectiveness of j&j's covid vaccine against delta. is it good news or bad news, ash? ashley: it is interesting, depending who you listen to. a new study concludes that the coronavirus made by j&j is much less effective against the delta and lambda variants than against the original virus. the conclusions add to evidence that the 13 million people inoculated with the j&j vaccine may indeed need to receive a second dose ideally one of those vaccines made by pfizer or moderna. now the study is at odds with those from smaller studies published by johnson & johnson earlier this month suggesting that a single dose of the vaccine is effective against the variant, even eight months after inoculation but other experts say all of the vaccines seem to

11:02 am
i'm fully vaccinated and i encourage others to do the same. i don't wear a mask, so i am flying. i don't believe the moderna vaccine which is the one i use poses any threat to me. in fact i find it liberating. we are back to normal activity largely because more than half of us are vaccinated and many others who had covid have natural immunity. i don't believe in vaccine mandates, this is america, the government should not be forcing people to inject something into their bodies but a private company, that is different, private companies should be -- this is my opinion should be allowed to mandate vaccination. think liability please. there is 1 million lawyers out there eager to sue any company which fails to keep every single one of its customers and employees covid free. vaccination keeps the lawyers at bay. i do not believe children should have to wear masks in

11:04 am
do you think the government should be mandating vaccines? >> know i don't. i think it is a personal choice and it is great of you to encourage people to get it, i got the vaccine as soon as i could, so did my husband, that is where most people feel about this because they wanted the liberation you talk about but one thing i would say, i agree with everything you said, the one thing i would say we need more information on is large part of the population who had covid and have covid antibodies. if you are a private corporation, we need to have more studies done on this because there's been one study which was very interesting, they studied 55,000 people and in that study it showed people who had covid and had antibodies from it basically were in the same category effort section as people who got vaccinated and they tested 3 different populations, people who had covid and didn't get vaccinated and people who had covid and did get vaccinated and tested people who didn't have covid and get vaccinated, those people fared the worst in the study. this was done in early june, but the people who had covid and then didn't get vaccinated
11:05 am
or had covid and did were about the same so i only say what we need, doctor doctor mike carey talked about this, the cdc has a $40 billion budget, they spent half $1 billion on studying this stuff. we need to have a better understanding of how much protection they get from natural antibodies when they have covid and compare that to the rest of the population for a better understanding how long they last, at least a month according to the study and whether or not one shot might be better for people who have had covid. a lot of doctors talk about this. i'm not a doctor. we cheered the vaccination process throughout the entire thing. when people were saying this is ridiculous, it will take four years to make this faxing, anyone jamming this thing through should be looked at and
11:06 am
questions as we were thrilled when this vaccine came through and talked about what an incredible achievement it was. every time i go to a baseball game in concert i'm so thankful for this vaccine and we cheered that process throughout. >> i encourage people to get vaccinated. case closed on that. i know you were on the air yesterday as the bezos spaceflight was ending, you saw it. i'm sure you reported it but senator elizabeth warren is saying this morning it is time for jeff bezos to take care of business right here on earth and pay his fair share in taxes. i thought that was -- why are we so negative, such a wild success on your hands from jeff bezos. >> $600 billion or something like this. >> $204 billion. >> there's plenty either way for him to do good honor here and to pay his fair share of taxes.

at 3:00 pm eastern time, the story with martha maccallum. thank you as always. let's check various markets, first of all i'm intrigued with this one, one.28% is the yield on the 10 year treasury. that has been all over the place this weekend has wobbled some of the markets, michael lee, market watcher, is with me now. these wild swings in the 10 year yield, what is the significance for the stock market? >> great question and not all the people talk about the bond market and how it affects stocks. the difference between short-term interest rates and longer-term interest rates is what the bond market views as growth and inflation over the next several years so when that difference becomes very small the bond market is saying don't believe this to be inflation or growth going forward and we may be the end of the business cycle. when the business was large inflation and growth are on the way and we are near the beginning of the business cycle
11:09 am
so earlier this year there was a pandemic era accommodation for big banks to hold more balance sheet. there was a lot of forced selling and people looked at the bond movement and said inflation is coming, the bond market says it will be rampant and as the bond market recovered from that a lot of people said yields should be much much higher so i will short these bonds and those people who shorted the bond like the people who shorted game stock got crushed over the last couple weeks. yields earlier this year were artificially too high and not artificially too low, when you are looking at this and if you are not you are not looking the bond market way i am and saying the bond market is telling me something really bad is about to happen, i will sell my risk assets, stock markets get hit. whenever bonds move in either direction very quickly, unexpectedly, it spooks investors because they are saying the bondholders out

11:18 am
the white house doesn't want to use the other traditional method of user fees for people on highways and rail to pay for this added new spending so they are trying to cobble together different ways they can pay for it. irs enforcement, cracking down on people who are not paying their fair share in taxes is on the table, that is now off the table and what has replaced that is medicare rebates, there are other ways to repurchase pandemic relief funds to pay for the $600 billion in new infrastructure spending, revenue from new public-private partnerships and proceeds from 5g spectrum option so still a lot of in the air. i caught up with senator joe manchin comedies or two major sticking points, not everyone has agreed to how to pay for this at this point. he says they are still trying to coordinate with the white house to the white house can tell them what money is touchable and what money is untouchable. the bill also is not written yet, the paper for it is not agreed to and republicans are waiting for the congressional budget office to detail how much it costs to get an accurate price tag for all of

this but even with the bill mostly unwritten senator schumer plans to charge ahead with the vote to begin debate on this bipartisan infrastructure bill seen -- being negotiated was all 50 republicans are expected to vote no today including the bipartisan negotiators trying to work out a deal that i asked manchin if it is unfair for schumer to plow ahead with this. he said it's not about fair or unfair but the only way to put pressure on to try to get a deal done. stuart: we are not sure how we will pay for what is in the bill, that is a fact as of right now but we are getting ready for senator braun to comment on this infrastructure plan, just getting his camera ready and i will show you the dow up 228. full recovery from monday's laws, the nasdaq is up 79 points. the yield on the 10 year treasury very much in the news this week, now it is one.28%,

when you forge ahead regardless of the underpinning which was supposed to be bipartisanship in the unity, easy to talk about infrastructure, let's take our queue from the american rescue act, that didn't take long and we got right to slam dunking it through in away. it is going to happen on hard infrastructure and especially soft infrastructure which they have at 3.5 trillion. they are going to ram it through and i think they will pay the political consequences for that lee, especially in 2022 because they again seized the moment are opportunists when it comes to government, entrepreneurs but don't have things that normally go into a good business plan. stuart: i'm trying to read between the lines here, doesn't sound like we are going to get very much either out of the $1 trillion plan or the $3 trillion plan. at the end of the day we don't
11:23 am
get much past. >> probably not because when you try to say you are willing to deal with infrastructure at out of the gate expand the definition, that nothing ever was included in the discussion of infrastructure before you have already said how much you are going to spend on that and then you are talking the hard part, the tangible infrastructure we all agree on and then starting to fishtail on how to pay for it so that has happened on almost anything i've been involved with into a half years, and we are $10 trillion further in debt than when i got here to it have years ago and still going to add another 3 or 4 with all of this. stuart: i like your imagery, fishtail and around, pretty good. don't be such a stranger, come ncs again soon. back to money, specifically

the rising inflation we are seeing everywhere. if you look at companies that amazing things, they are having problems with input prices in december or january, picked up the mainstream press in march or april. that is talking about rising interest rates sooner than expected which will hurt the market, the second is rising covid numbers, not good. this is not a good thing. we have this euphoria of getting back to normal and now will there be more shutdowns, more lockdowns the restrictions? a better restaurants or travel? that is not a good thing. that will lead to increased volatility in the market. stuart: you mentioned inflation visible everywhere and it is, you can see rising prices. the federal reserve and president biden think that inflation, it fades. do you believe that?
11:35 am
>> too early to tell but my guess is no. there is so much capital that has been pushed into the market, monetary supply shot through the roof and we are talking $3 trillion put in for reconciliation. we are seeing the same things we might have seen in the 1970s that led to long-term inflation. the fed is arguing it is based on a done nominator that is so much lower because of what happened at the beginning of the pandemic a lot of warning signs are flashing red, they seem to be 3 or 4 months behind that anybody who manufactures anything new there were inflation issues as long as 7 or 8 months ago. stuart: i remember the 1970s i was there. you perhaps do not. it wasn't a great time to be in america. thanks for being with us. see you again soon. good stuff. the milwaukee bucks just won their first nba title since

the unusualness of the inscription, to go for an excess of 30,$000 and it is a killer inscription. stuart: why are you branching out into what i would call a political arena as opposed to your normal sports arena? >> we are known as industry leader in sports collectibles but we do sell a significant amount of entertainment, historical, comic book and similar items so when this was brought to us we thought it would be something that was of historical significance and we grabbed it. stuart: let's get back to sports memorabilia. i believe you have larry bird, magic johnson rookie card. tell me more and how much. >> this guarded his psa 10 which is incredibly rare, the highest possible grade. it is unusual because it has

stuart: you got to hear this was the primitive education sending money to schools to bring kids back for in person learning. some of the money might go to activists who want to send waste teachers to antiracist therapy. the details please. >> reporter: big development to kick things off was the department of education admitting they have made a mistake, they messed up on this and they are distancing themselves from this group that as you said wants white
11:49 am
teachers to go to antiracist therapy. watch. after a turbulent year protests and covid lockdowns america's children are heading back to school, there could be new lessons to learn. president biden's american rescue plan authorized $122 billion to the department of education for state education agencies. 90% of the money will go to local school districts which in turn must reserve at least 20% to address the learning lost during the last school year. the administration asks they do that by using evidence-based programs like summer learning and afterschool activities that's not all. inside the department of education's covid 19 handbook, called roadmap to reopening safely and meeting all students needs the department recommends schools use some of the money towards race and social emotional learning. the manual offers direct link to a group called the abolitionist teaching network who will help schools transform.
11:50 am
>> network dedicated to not creating new schools reimagining schools, but those who do nothing but harm black and brown students. >> doctor love, either an activist, created the abolitionist teaching network in 2020 to develop and support educators to fight injustice within their schools and communities. >> if you don't feel white supremacy and is in everything we do you have a problem. >> reporter: love wants white teachers to undergo antiracist therapy to stop what she calls spirit murdering black and brown students. >> one thing i bring to this work is significant history of trying to trouble my own racial identity and help other white teachers trouble their internalized white supremacy and anti-blackness. >> we found the group higher paid activists across the country whose jobs they say is going into schools to dismantle
11:51 am
oppressive structures by mapping, canvassing, building groups and coalitions, creating media and propaganda. >> education cannot save us. we must save education. >> for example if teachers find school uniforms to be oppressive, atn would send in their activists to help abolish them. >> you call us, we will fund activists and residents that he or she rose will find out how, they will do the research, organizing, teachers and parents show up and we dismantle and we hope to have hundreds of around the country. >> reporter: love has a history of making controversial statement on twitter like this tweet from 2020 in which she writes mediocre greedy rich white people are killing us. it is unclear how the department of education shows atn as the resource for social and emotional learning although biden's deputy education secretary, cindy martin, is an
11:52 am
advocate of bettina love. last fall while she was still superintendent at san diego schools, martin invited love to train teachers to stop spirit murdering black students. let's review the statement just released from the department of education in response to our report that the department does not endorse recommendations of this group nor do they reflect our policy positions. it was an error in a lengthy document to include the citation but the question is who was writing or editing this guidance. it was sent to 13,000 school districts back in april. what happened to the schools that spent 3 months planning lessons around this group teaching, do the issue new guidance, serious questions, paying attention to all this. stuart: you have had impact. thank you for sharing it with us. how on earth did we arrive in a
11:53 am
position where we do this kind of thing in the schools? >> refusal to court meritocracy, defies america today which it does not and the refusal to talk about the real causes of the academic skills gap which is the culture that regards academic achievement as acting white. we are blaming phony problems which is white supremacy for something that needs to be addressed in the home culture but we have universities that are dedicated to the proposition that america is divided between oppressors and the oppressed. with this particular men him, and and by the biden
11:54 am
administration, and and ignoring that black students are more unruly. this is tearing down every civilizational standard we have got. >> bentley university, in diversity, equity and inclusion. what do you do if you graduate with a degree in equity, inclusion and whatever else it was. what do you do with this, what impact does it have on our society. >> it has a negative impact, corporations for the last five decades paying enormous fees, exorbitant fees to these hucksters the pedal in empty verbiage, so it is a growth

industry, this idea, and imposing weight norms, and with -- not valuing diversity. and and it is going to spread, by declaring a major, it is superficial, a set of completely empty ideas that have no relevance to the real world, but nothing left of the universities. this is the final moment when the campus university eat an entire university.
