9:00 am
maria: have a great day. "varney & co." begins right now. a take it away, stu. stuart: good morning. two hours from now, the vote begins on the trillion dollar infrastructure package, yes, it's likely to pass. however, the bill does not include the section on crypto regulation or taxation. some republican senators are not happy about that. they say this omission displays a fundamental misunderstanding of the crypto industry. that's for bitcoin and
9:01 am
the other crypto's today, they are all a bit higher with the reversal. earlier today they were down and now they've gone back up. maybe that crypto language will be included in the house bill, maybe. markets pretty much a sideways as they have for a few days with the dow jones down a fraction, s&p up a fraction and nasdaq up slightly, not much movement. the maxi-- vaccine mandates margin on spreading along with rising covid cases. clashes are coming in some school boards insisting students wear masks while state government threatens the withdrawal of this student funding if they do that. on the show today, doctor marth deck doctor mcgarry is on the show today. we will deal with the eviction moratorium that's just been expanded and landlords are hurting. we will talk to one who says tenants are taking advantage. it's tuesday, august 10, 2021. "varney & co." is about
9:02 am
to begin. ♪♪ stuart: earth wind and fire, kind of sideways music i call that. susan: we are looking ahead. i like that. stuart: not telling me about our rally in stocks or soft, just kind of middle-of-the-road, earth wind and fire. crypto's, we start there. bitcoin right now very close to $46,000 per coin. good morning, susan. susan: hello stephen let's talk ted cruz because he had a lot to say about regulating crypto. susan: i would say a lot about regulating crypto disappointment in the crypto community as this amendment was blocked by bernie sanders and alabama senator because it shall be wanted $50 billion more in defense and
9:03 am
bernie said no to both and jack stuart between surprise and really exasperation with politics. he called it d.c. broke in a different tweet. i think a lot of people would agree. at the senator cynthia loomis the author of this crypto amendment along with senator toomey resized senators for their lack of financial knowledge treating we keep moving forward without understanding the implications of our actions. we will fail further and further behind china if -- ted cruz said the same thing in a viral moment. >> let's recognize gathered all 100 senators in this chamber and asked them to stand up and articulate two sentences defining what in the hell a crypto currency is that you would not get greater than five who could answer that question. we shouldn't regulate something we don't yet understand and we should actually take the time
9:04 am
to understand it. we should hold hearings, consider the consequences. susan: five in a chamber of 100 senators that would know what crypto currency is. stuart: he's probably right. susan: given the questions asked of mark zuckerberg i think that's pretty obvious. despite this bill it will likely pass voted down at 11:00 a.m. and without the crypto amendment to me says they will clarified crypto rules, but some say maybe it will be added in the house, but passing it through the house is more complicated so will this ultimate infrastructure bill be passed anyways? stuart: i'm concerned-- i'm not concerned-- i mean, i'm intrigued that the language which would have been helpful to the crypto people was left out of this infrastructure bill, but the crypto still goes up. susan: again, with the infrastructure bill be passed in
9:05 am
the house anyways? if it doesn't pass, again where we are, status quo. stuart: true so why is crypto up susan: what is defined as a broker at that point, no one knows a. stuart: way out of my ballpark but that was interesting discussion of crypto's. check the price of gold, all over the place recently. 1730 this morning. it's steady this morning up about $3, but later this week we get the consumer price index and you may see gold react to that inflation indicator. right now 1730 per ounce. quickly checking futures, this is a-- there is some green, but it's not that much and luke lloyd is with us this morning. take a stand back for second, can you be see any reason to sell right now? >> good question. i actually get that question all the time, you know should you buy, should you sell and that's a loaded question as there is many reasons
9:06 am
to sell. a skyhigh evaluation, the delta variant, higher taxes coming down the road, which i don't think the market is a racing in right now but at the same time there's many reason to buy as well with record earnings, strong demand. we have 10.1 million jobs available so if companies want to grow i think the real question everyone should ask is are there more reasons to buy than are more reasons to sell. generally, the answer is yes. be selected with where you put your money. stuart: that's a roundabout way of saying no, i don't see any catastrophic reason to sell right now. in fact, i would keep my present plan. is that the summary? >> that's a perfect summary. i could not have done any better. stuart: you did it yourself. stay there for a second. i have more information on travel i want out over 2 million people passed through tsa checkpoints monday. that's still not quite back to that 2019 levels
9:07 am
susan, we have one economists saying air travel is a slowing down. susan: j.p. morgan said that, consumer credit card data that spending on air travel dropped 20% in late july. stuart: compared to what? susan: compared to the peak a few weeks ago. stuart: really? susan: peaks were over that july 4 holiday so july was actually a bigger drop than the severe winter covid this season, but compared to spending that it was not that much in comparison. tsa numbers confirming the drop, 4% in the week of july 19, compared to the july 4 holiday. stuart: i think a lot of people are put off a flying. susan: bank of america confirming that as well that it's come down since july 4. stuart: the debate on the airlines, this is about vaccinate the staff or not. susan: yes. stuart: american is the standout. susan: american is probably the biggest because-- stand out because if you are vaccinated you get an extra day off next
9:08 am
year at american airlines, $50 payout as well. no mandate according to doug parker, it's more incentivizing as united is mandating vaccine for the 54,000 staff. america is the only one with frontier airlines and you don't have to get vaccinated, but if that is the case you get regular testing a. stuart: hawaiian airlines. susan: the same thing as united, mandating all that staff get vaccinated and only until november 1. stuart: what a split. susan: it is. stuart: confusing split. susan: i agree. stuart: vaccinate yes or no, got it. let's get back to luke lloyd and bringing you back in here because i understand you are planning a cruise in the near future and i want to know what the restrictions are on you. where are you sailing from and what you seek? >> first i want to address the flight, just last night my flight was canceled and i think it's probably because of the vaccine mandates.
9:09 am
no one wants to get vaccines or people on the right to choose whether or not they want the vaccine, but i'm supposed to go on a cruise because who knows what's going to happen at the end of this week. they are not requiring mask mandates. they require a covid test before. i met vaccinated and i have had covid. 96% of people on the crews will be vaccinated. people have gotten vaccinated so they don't have to wear the mask or get covid vaccines so it's making a ton of people angry and my boots on the ground research for example my family had an 8:00 p.m. dining time but we wanted 6:00 p.m. so we were put on the waitlist. 30 minutes after we got the e-mail that they required masks and covid test before, they bumped us to the 6:00 p.m. slot we wanted, so that tells me a ton of people canceled cruises which isn't necessarily good for the travel stocks. stuart: luke, you are far too young for the early bird special on a cruise, but that's another story. >> i eat every two hours
9:10 am
and that's why i have put on like 20 pounds over the past two months. stuart: you have confirmed that travel is a slowing down and the resurgence of covid delta variant is the region-- reason. >> people don't like to be restricted. stuart: you are absolutely right. thank you for joining us. the senate is going to vote today around 11:00 a.m. eastern on the instructor bill. it's supposed to pass, susan pickett then what? susan: then goes to the house which we know will be tricky. three and half trillion dollars in climate and anti- poverty spending as well. do you think that will necessarily get an easy pass they are? stuart: i not. that is the one point to trillion dollar infrastructure package and then it goes to the house, that might be tricky there and after that's all resolved, then you go to the three and a half trillion deal? susan: yes. stuart: that's the progress? susan: yes, but as there's going
9:11 am
to be a lot of caveats saying we will pass the three and half trillion dollar package and the infrastructure built. stuart: and the reconciliation. susan: i just don't see congress with that type of bipartisanship stuart: you are not-- i just don't see how you will get three and half trillion dollars worth of infrastructure, whatever you want to call it just by 50 votes in the senate. you are not going to get that seek to correct and that's why bitcoin and crypto is a rally because they think the infrastructure bill will not pass. stuart: around in circles. how about this, masks for the but not for the -- she is massless in a large wedding crowd. are you catching on to the trend collects its hypocrisy at its worst. looking at draftkings, golden nugget online gaming, did you know they are launching a new marketplace for nft. ceo joins me just a moment.

9:17 am
tell me about amc accepting bitcoin. susan: popcorn, concessions, tickets by the end of this year, 2021. amc says they will have a payment system in the transaction system in place by the end of this year to start accepting bitcoin. right now you can use google pay, apple pay which i showed you had to use on your phone recently, but as the fundamentals i would say that amc did well tripling sales in the springtime. they lost less money. all theaters are back up and running and they did the smart thing which is raise cash when their stock price was high and according to the ceo they have $2 billion in cash after raising one and a quarter billion dollars during the spring. stuart: and that is a chunk of money. susan: we will hear what he says to charles payne leroy at 2:00 p.m. stuart: adam aaron from amc. interesting guy. let me check robinhood. where is it going this
9:18 am
morning, up to $56 per share. in case you missed it, we had bar stool dave portnoy on the show yesterday. listen to what he said about robinhood. >> i didn't invest in it out of principle, but they are killing it. not much you can say right now. i guess he went. stuart: he would not put any money into it because it's a democratized investing. you are into that. >> i am, but i'm still-- still scarred from the gamestop stuff. i think sums weird stuff happen, i like taking money but i still have principles, stuart. stuart: memorable quote. taking a look at the wild ride that thing has been on, actually not that wilde. it's settling down at $56 a share. stuart: let's move on. let's get serious. draftkings will acquire golden nugget online gaming.
9:19 am
$1.56 billion in a stock. today a new announcement it's called draftkings marketplace. this is interesting. let's bring in the ceo of draftkings jason robbins. jason, explained to me what draftkings marketplace is. untold it's all about and ftes. are you going to start in exchange for nft's? >> that's exactly what we are doing, starting a marketplace and we actually announced this morning that we are opening it up by selling the inaugural tom brady nft with a variety of choices ranging from $10 to $1500 for the most premium autographed version. we are doing it with our partner autograph who is been a great addition to our relationship. they included the rights to a number of athletes, not just tom brady, but wayne gretzky, tony hawk , tiger woods, and many, many others.
9:20 am
stuart: what you are doing is providing an exchange where someone can buy and sell these nft's, you are buying and selling them your self are you? >> now is the one guy in the middle taking your peace? >> exactly right. autograph is the one creating them here today on it. we are an exchange and eventually we will allow for other forms of functionality such as auction based selling, secondary markets and other things, but initially autograph has created a series of nft's and we are selling them i believe wednesday. stuart: what makes you so convinced that there really is a vigorous marketplace for nft is? >> well, already this year there's been over two and half billion in sales in and ftes and i think it's still much in the infancy stage. i think we are early. it's a huge number for a market this early. who knows where it ends. it will be great with the customer acquisition standpoint to have these
9:21 am
different athletes out there with their names and hopefully engaging their fans. stuart: seems like it's kind of a sidebar to the online gaming operation, which you are running at draftkings. interesting tie-in which expands your footprint in athletics and sports and gaming; right? >> well, we have ambitions to be a very multi product base because-- company and it's well beyond online gaming. we look for products that we think overlap well with our existing customer demographics and we look for things that will expand as to new audiences and bring new players and customers, but ultimately we want a whole series of products we certainly have ambition to one day be like on amazon who started selling books and now look at them. we would like to take the company long-term. stuart: you have ambition to be like amazon. i think that's great, i mean, we love having people on the show who
9:22 am
are expanding new industries and bringing those new industries to the public so they can invest in them and learn about them. i think it's fascinating. jason, i wish we had more time, but i want to thank you for coming on the show and i wish you the best of luck in your endeavor to be like amazon. there is a dream. well-done tear. >> thank you. stuart: see you soon. later this hour, by the way i will be joined by the ceo of that mgm, adam greenblatt who is doing something similar. susan: online betting is the future. stuart: that is the new industry and glad to be on top of it. checking futures, seven and a half minutes until the opening bell, it's green, but as i said before not much of it at least at the opening bell. we'll be back. ♪♪

peter vaughters... william lacy... madam c.j.walker. they are the heroes in my family. who are the heroes in yours? stuart: still showing some green, not much as we approach the opening bell. let's bring in mike murphy. i went to talk to you about coinbase as they report "after the bell" today. i'm pretty sure you like them. what are you looking
9:27 am
for? >> good morning, stuart. you had a great interview with jason robbins a minute ago and coinbase is crypto what draftkings was-- is to sports. may be the next amazon. it's a great way for people to belong the crypto space to have exposure without just buying or selling one of the coins, bitcoin or ethereum. however, it's had a big run up from 230 to 280. we don't need to jump in before the earnings. let's see what they announce and what the future looks like and then for the people at home with ways to get exposure if they want exposure to crypto, it's a great way to play it i think. stuart: why are you sticking with uber? i know you bought them probably in the 30s. it went to the 60s and it's back down to 43. why are you sticking with them? >> i think stuart, we talked draftkings and
9:28 am
coinbase, uber has created a whole new category but it's not just a company that takes from point a to point. they are now food delivery and in so many different areas. they now have a business section. uber is a company that has over 100 million monthly active users. this, to me, is similar to facebook when it came down into the teens and people said they won't be able to monetize their user base. you see they obviously have. uber will monetize its user base and i talked about it that they have as well or they will make a whole another line item on their balance sheet where they get money from ads. uber to me is something i won't be a seller when he gets back to 50. i think it's a company that will continue to move through $100 a share and i think long-term it's one of the best of values out there in my opinion. stuart: you just said it, $100 a share on uber which is currently 43. that perked our attention.
9:29 am
your investment strategy at your firm is to look for companies which are in brand-new industries which are likely to expand their footprint just like coinbase unlike the others we have been talking about. that's your investment philosophy; right? >> exactly appear we are investing in the private market and then we went to see it to the public market and then we want to see them expand to create new categories or to break apart these existing categories. it's an overused word, but it's really disruption. something like uber you can compare to anyone else out there. there are people now that are coming after them but uber is the biggest with the first mover advantage and there's a sony different levers that they can pull to generate more levitt-- revenue so i think when the market realizes that, it's more than made 40s. stuart: when do they get to $100 a share? >> put the gun to my head. i'm going to say back to
9:30 am
new highs before the end of the year, so made to 60s, $70 before the end of this year. stuart: not bad. i could make 50% before the end of this year. we will see. >> stuart, we had this discussion when it was 26 so i think it will get back there. stuart: a long-term investor mike murphy. thank you. stuart: they are cheering and ringing the bell. dow futures suggest we will go up as trading begins and here we go as we have begun trading. not much, a modest gain, 40 points, .10% up for the dow industrials. s&p 500, up .09%. nest egg, it's up-- nasdaq is up. a better gain for the tech heavy nasdaq then s&p and the dow jones. let me have a look at big tech. tuesday morning and big tech is mostly higher. and the only loser i see is a facebook, but again
9:31 am
the actual movement of stocks is very limited thus far. we do have a report that softbank is dumping tech stocks. susan: exactly right. alibaba which is one of the best tech traits of all time but they are dumping alphabet, facebook, netflix and they are offloading billions of dollars in fact they did during the spring. they offloaded three billions of a facebook. microsoft around a billion dollars. stuart: they sold microsoft created a billion dollars worth, almost as much as what stuart varney owns. close to half a billion dollars worth of alphabet and the 300-- million dollars, pardon me of netflix, but also amazon they reduced about $600 million in amazon stock as well and when a player life softbank sells off shares it obviously depresses the place. stuart: that's why microsoft went to 290 and they went back to 280.
9:32 am
i want to talk about moderna. now, there is a stock that went way up yesterday. they are up a little bit today, but they are at a $485 a share. with the story? susan: now 200 billion-dollar company for the first time. there's lots of things driving this stock, but the rally lease on monday, was because it proved to be more effective and resilient against the delta variant virus than say pfizer, but also when you think about it moderna quadrupled so far this year and it's been added to the s&p 500 which means these trillions of dollars in index funds had to go into by it. here's how great of a traitor i am, i bought moderna at $80 and i was like 150, and i sold out at 150. stuart: you still made a profit. susan: no one dies from taking profit, but it would have been nice to take it out of 470. stuart: here's a story for you
9:33 am
about smile direct club, the stock is tumbling. not that bad. susan: moderna. stuart: there we go. susan: that is tumbling. stuart: i thought smile direct the white teeth people, but they are not they are the straight teeth. susan: like-- did you have braces growing up? stuart: no. susan: not fun, but now they do it in a high-tech way but they aren't straining as much teeth as anticipated. they had a cyber attack in april and sales fell short. stuart: that's quite a tumble, $5 a share. let's look at the dow jones winners, 22 points higher for the dow jones winners, walmart, chevron, salesforce, coke's on the winners list for the dow jones. s&p 500, kansas city sub -- there something going on with the railroad. susan will get to it later. nasdaq winners, please.
9:34 am
interesting bunch-- costco is on that list about the only one i now. susan: that's interesting, a lot of consumer brands are leading the nasdaq today. stuart: softbank selling my microsoft. tesla, where are they cracks we like to check in frequently, 708, down i understand they got some bad news out of china. susan: disappointing tesla deliveries in july. they only delivered 8600 china made cars in the month and it's down almost 70% from june, so that's a big. also, if you think about what happened in july itself, deliveries and car sales are different because when you deliver that's when you actually get the market down pick tesla's close to 33,000 but the problem with the deliveries, all those local chinese rivals have caught up. x-delivered almost the same number of cars in july but it looks like
9:35 am
tesla's lead has evaporated. stuart: if their lead has evaporated, not good news for tesla appeared. up nearly 20%, morgan stanley says it's a winner and-- in the electric vehicle space and it could rise more than 160% with a target price of $40 a share appeared how about casper sleep. i understand they are the mattress people delivering in a box. susan: right to consumers. stuart: strong growth in retail and direct to consumer sales. what else you got on this? susan: you are asking why it's down so much, when you make a bigger last than anticipated in the spring that's a problem. they had supply chain issues and i don't think it's getting better so that's why the stock is getting hammered today. stuart: casper sleep down 7% pure check the big board. we have been open for five minutes and we are

9:37 am
get to 50,000 in a week is not terrible. stuart: why is it in rally mode? susan: because the expected to spend a dime in talking about 1.2 trillion dollars in the infrastructure bill and three and half trillion that anti- poverty climate bill. stuart: why would a lot of spending make bitcoin go up? susan: because it's a digital gold now. stuart: inflation hedge. susan: look at the converse gold price, flash crash from going 1800 to below 1650 in one session overnight. lowers that money going? a lot of people say people were rushing to sell to buy into bitcoin stuart: doctor marty may carry says he's against mask mandates in schools. he goes as far as calling it abusive to force kids to wear masks. he's on the show in our next our. louisiana senator bill cassidy says he disagrees with the governor of florida executive order to ban

9:45 am
take, you know, seven, eight, 10 years or more. they didn't get any real permitting reform outside of the highway part of it, so i don't expect any aggregate impact on the economy. i think the bill-- you know, about a third of the bill is pretty good, traditional core infrastructure. i like it. whatever the economic impact it is stuff we need so the bipartisan people did a good job, but so much of this bill is wasted money and green new deal money. here's just the idea, so you-- where's the xl pipeline? that's infrastructure pure drilling is infrastructure. where is the building on the wall down at the mexican border where it's a catastrophe, couple hundred thousand illegals coming in every month. that's infrastructure appeared on the battery driven economy which the government wants to pay for, the government wants to pay for your
9:46 am
cars, your charging stations and batteries. we don't have the resources to do that. china has 95% of the rare earth resources. we are flying into china's hands i mean the idea we are going to get rid of fossil fuels, natural gas, oil, coal is crazy in my opinion. you could have more of the above, all of the above, let the renewables come, let the free enterprise market do it. let the free enterprise technological advances do that. lets not give it over to china. stuart: you have the un climate report out yesterday painting a dire picture of our future last week get on board right now with the climate mitigation measures. and that essentially is a shot in the arm from the united nations to bernie sanders, aoc and the green new deal. >> they will play it that way, but of course tonight on our show we will have a steam cleaning who will debunk

it so much that stuff. when you look into that un report, the actual statistic, not the political rhetoric, by the way very little has changed, very little impact on the american economy has changed. there is no catastrophe. there is no calamity, i mean, some tax cuts md regulations would fix that, but that goes back to the of the structure bill. by the way, before i forget, senator shelby is holding up the crypto currency tax. i don't know what's going to happen but they won't even vote on that and schumer is talking about lighting the build up and i'm not sure what that means. close he doesn't like the bill or she wants to attach it to direct conciliate-- reconciliation and by the way we are in a booming economy, a booming economy with a lot of inflation as part of that boom whether it's temporary or not it exists. do we need a

december of 2019, january of 2020 i would have said the economy was doing pretty well. all we want to do is get back to that. but no, they had to put their hands on our energy with keystone pipeline. look what happened with that keep your hands off our energy. they had to put their hands off of our border patrol. look what happened with that. keep your hands on the border. they put their hands on our police force and safety. keep your hands off of our police. that's it if they would have done nothing, would have done nothing we would be in a much better place than we are today. isn't that amazing? stuart: it is true. if they had done nothing we would be in a better place today, that's a fact. let me turn your attention to the stock market. we often talk politics you and i. i think we should talk the market here. suppose for one brief shining moment, we get four trillion bucks of new spending, the first infrastructure package, second infrastructure package, boil it
10:05 am
down to trillion in extra spending, suppose we get it what happens to the market, what happens to the economy? >> it is not good, stuart. four trillion dollars is a lot of money. a trump seconds ago, neanderthals were dragging their hands on the plains of europe. that is how long a trillion seconds is. we're talking about four trillion. i think the fed will probably drag their feet, no pun intended because they're worried what might happen with the delta variant. that ultimately will settle down. they're worried about that, they have to be thinking what the tax hikes will do. what is the economy going to look like this spring this upcoming spring when we get back to normal gdp, stuart, two, 2 1/2%? we have biden's tax plans, maybe interest rate as lot higher, what will that look like in the market? what will that look like in your home with your own economy? that is why the fed they will probably drag their feet, i think they got to be thinking about covid and think about what
10:06 am
the tax hikes will be. we're only 74% back we were pre-pandemic when it comes to jobs. we have work to do. i think the fed will drag their feet because they're worried what this might do for the economy. stuart: doesn't sound like good news for the market, that's a fact, i don't think, and inflation. scott, that was great. coming back to us. good to have you own the markets occasionally. >> good to be back. stuart: look at markets please, it has been a steadily rising tide here. the dow up 74 points, nasdaq up six, s&p is up seven. here is ed yardeni. now i want to ask you about the impact on the market of this expanding delta variant. the mask mandates and the mask wearing that seems to be coming back and the vaccine mandates. when is it going to affect the market if ever? >> well i think if this all leads to another round of lockdowns we're all in trouble.
10:07 am
we'll have the economy will go back into recession, we'll have a bear market again but i don't think we'll go into lockdowns as a result of the delta variant. i think as a result of all the news we're getting on the delta variant, vaccinations are going to go up, have been going up. i think we're learning to live with it. the stork market is certainly learning to live with it. earnings will be up 80% on year-over-year basis during the second quarter. that is best as it will get in a while. that is certainly awesome in the face of a pandemic. stuart: is there anything on your radar screen saying i'm not quite sure i like the look of that, maybe i shut start thinking about selling? anything out there? >> i'm actually writing a piece for tomorrow called headwinds and speed bumps. it will not be as he as it has been over the last year. didn't feel like it was easy over time but the markets
10:08 am
basically doubled since march reflecting a v-shape economy. we're seeing peak growth rates for economy and earnings in the second quarter. which means things will very down. the only question will they slow down to something more normal like what we had before the pandemic or is it going to be abnormal, abormally strong or abormally weak? i do worry about the weak side. parts shortages, labor shortages, they're everywhere. they haven't gone a way which may be a real problem for economic growth. stuart: how about this one trillion dollar package that they're talking about today, that being debated today, voted on today? suppose for a brief shining moment it passes as is, the senate, the house, it is the law, it goes into effect, what impact on the market. >> well as a practical problem here, that is who is going to build all these infrastructures? we have a real labor shortage even in construction. so it is not clear to me that if they pass all this money it will
10:09 am
be that easy to spend it. as you know it takes forever to get these projects going. there is environmental regulations that mead to be met, so on so forth. just because they allocate the money doesn't mean it will be easy to spend it. but clearly the markets are going to be concerned about about having a lot more debt. they haven't been so far because the fed has kept interest rates so low. but look, come on now, we have tremendous substantial progress in the labor markets clearly. we have record job openings, 10 million jobs out there. the fed will have to start tapering pretty soon. more fed officials are going contrary to jay powell's position on that. stuart: magic word, the taper, when it starts, when it is hinted at, watch out. ed thanks for joining us as always. >> thank you. absolutely. stuart: you see the markets. it has crept up nicely here. we got some movers. primarily in the retailers?

10:23 am

three months. it has been a year-and-a-half. reporter: availability of commercial spaces is growing. you can see here in new york city it has gone up up to 17% from 10 1/2 year ago. san francisco is up to nearly 16%. that means more competition for landlords as they try to attract tenants. this particular landlord tells me before the delta variant he was feeling optimistic, getting a lot of inquiries for this commercial space. now that big major companies are delaying return to the office now that interest seems to be drying up. stuart: ouch. commercial real estate taking it on the chin. lydia, thank you very much for a great report. our next guest is a landlord, a small scale landlord in new york city. the eviction moratorium has been extended. tell me are tenants taking advantage of you? >> yes, they are. they are taking advantage, of
10:32 am
landlords in new york. i don't know, i know some states are more lenient than others but they definitely are taking advantage of the small landlord in new york. there are tenants that i know for a fact could pay the rent, have the means to pay the rent, actually making more money now between the stimulus checks they're getting and unemployment and able too pay the rent, they are not paying rent because they know they can. they're getting okay from the administration and different city agencies. the courts are closed. you can't take them to court. you have no rights as a landlord. you're completely helpless. stuart: you can evict them two months from now, i believe the moratorium is ended, two months from now or when? >> they say two months from now, i think this is the fifth or 6th time already they extended it. stuart: let's suppose two months from now you are able to evict these tenants who have not been paying rent? >> what will happen in two months. look into my fortune ball tell
10:33 am
you what will happen in two months. stuart: okay. >> the courts will be packed. as soon as the tenant walks into court, by the time you actually see a judge, with the tenant that you have a problem with because they're going to keep extending it because the courts are very busy, probably year-and-a-half, two years down the line. that is me being optimistic. when you do finally get in front of the judge, as soon as they say the word covid, the landlord is the bad person, the tenant is the good person, the landlord is the big almighty and the tenant is, you know, the weak one that has to be protected. and we're going to get screwed, landlords will get screwed. that is -- [inaudible]. if this takes another year, no. me and a few other landlords like me are small landlords. we don't own 100 buildings and we don't have commercial spaces that would cushion the blow from the residential.
10:34 am
no, we can't hold out. i will be bankrupt. stuart: did you get money from the government? >> no the government gave us sab, i think sab loan which is a loan. and compared to what we asked for and what we showed as losses and what we got i think we got 7% or 10% what our losses was. that is loan that we have to start paying back. a couple months ago the government offering something called erap, which is supposed to help landlords if the tenant gets on board and fills out the documents. and the landlord you know, fills out their portion of the documents. then the landlord has a good chance of getting it. everybody including me that i know that tried filling this out never got anywhere with it. some landlords were able to do it but haven't received a dollar. the worst thing bit is, you have to commit to keeping this tenant another year or two. so all you're doing you're prolonging the problem, whatever
10:35 am
problem you have now will happen in a year because the tenant is getting free money from the government. if you're lucky to have the landlord get the money that would be great. a year down the line you will have the same problem because the tenant is not going to pay. the tenant is expected for somebody else, another agency to come forward and help them. this is what happens. you're creating a monster. stuart: jeff, i'm sorry i got to bring this to an end because i'm out of time. we really want to thank you for bringing this to our attention. no one puts in a good word for the landlords. you are truly suffering and you might go out of business. that is terrible thing. >> i appreciate your help. stuart: i want you to come back and tell us how you're doing as things progress here. jeff, you're all right. >> have a good morning, thank you. stuart: this is interesting. cnn helped raise $230,000 for a mom facing eviction. turns out she wasn't the mother. cnn had to issue a major correction. take me through this lauren. lauren: dasha kelly was a casino

stuart: all right the markets show a nice rally still in progress for the dow industrials. up 133 points. nasdaq turned south, down 64. it is now, 10:351 eastern time that. means it is time for brian kilmeade. brian, the new york state assembly moving towards a impeachment inquiry against cuomo. in a few moments, 11:00 eastern, we'll hear from the governor's attorney. as i understand it the moment a impeachment proceeding is formalized, cuomo loses power. in comes the lieutenant governor. so my guess, he is not going to be the governor, the real governor very long. what say you? >> they will do an inquiry. he will have to step down while they do the inquiry. they come up to the conclusion,
10:52 am
he will be gone.

>> the best logic if you pass this it makes it less likely to pass that one of my democratic colleagues says infrastructure is a desert and the 3.5 trillion and other extravaganza that is the spinach. someone who agrees with that is mitch mcconnell mitch mcconnell thinks it's less likely to pass the 3.5 trillion. stuart: you would be a happy senator if you got the 1.2 trillion all the way through but none of the three and half trillion all the way through, am i right? >> even better the american people would be better off it's good to create hundreds of thousands of jobs if not millions and it's going to improve quality of life and is going to make people's lives safer, the 3.5 trillion drive up inflation, drive up the debt and drive up taxes so we hate that one but we do love this one. stuart: i tell, let's get serious louisiana heads the
11:20 am
country in new covid cases 16000 new cases, 15 deaths there is a statewide mask mandate as i understand in the louisiana, is it working? >> if it works it'll be a lag time before we see it working, right now hospitals are inundated with covid and they can't take care of the other patients because if you follow the tractor in your injured is full of covid patients. i will point out something remember joe biden for eight months into the pandemic and donald trump doesn't have a plan to control the virus, i do it turns out it's not working very well, i will say people get vaccinated this all goes away. stuart: we have a cnn host that suggests a travel ban was states with high covid like states like the louisiana would you like to respond to that.
11:21 am
>> was really important that people get vaccinated and try to single out estate or community it is arrogance if you will, i do encourage people to get vaccinated we have in our control to stop this in my state nationwide if we get vaccinated. stuart: would you make them mandatory. >> i don't think they should make them mandatory i will say society is society and hospitals and schools can make certain vaccines mandatory when you join and go to med school and college and start kindergarten your expected to be vaccinated hepatitis b and that's a mandated vaccine but i don't think the federal government should do it unless. stuart: would you do it at the state level would you have made a tory vaccines at the state level for companies or businesses or institutions in louisiana? >> you given me two different scenarios do i think the
11:22 am
hospital on the right demanding more from immunization for its employees to protect the patient to the employees clearly case law and societal laws should and they do do i think the governorship to everybody in the state has to get vaccinated or not, know that should not be the case so you allow the institution to do it, the business to do it but i don't think the governor or the government should be mandating for everybody. stuart: i believe you're wanted on the floor of the senate for a vote, will let you go and we hope to see you again really soon. let's check the markets they don't look great now but the dow and s&p hit intraday record highs the dow is holding up well above 35200, have a look at the moderna they reached a deal with canada to build a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant this should help address the vaccine shortage the stock is up more than 360% this year
11:23 am
but it's backed off a little maybe profit taking down 3.6% this morning 360% up at 2021 we work the office sharing guys teaming up with wakefield, what are they doing together. lauren: cushman is giving them a cash infusion of $150 million ahead of their planned deal later this year but what they want to do is refill offices with workers as adults at various surgeons and employees have been home for a year end half how do you convince bosses and staff that camille is wortht in the originality and creativeness to know how to help them fill the offices the right way. stuart: got that, show me google remote workers -- that says a pay cut for remote workers speaker it doesn't make sense how they figured out there's a
11:24 am
google calculator that their employees can used to justify the cost of their move for instance if you use a calculator someone who lives in connecticut but commutes to google's new york city would have to take a 15% pay cut if they work from home but the same person who lived in new york city and worked in new york city would get the same pay, it doesn't quite make sense is based on the situation but the bottom line is you need to have a conversation with your boss before you make a decision to move about what your compensation is going to be. stuart: well said very interesting, take a look at this into $12000 trashcan on the streets of san francisco, i say that's a sign that cities got off the record give me more about them i take which is coming up shortly one school made headlines last spring they said they would not employ vaccinated people they had to change their position, will find

stuart: that is box where right outside of fox business headquarters in studios, 79 degrees right there right now it is coming up on 11:30 a.m. will take a quick look at the markets the dow is holding onto the gate and solid gain of 150 points but the nasdaq has turned south a half of 1% down 74 points, that is not much of a move in the s&p 500 although it did hit another high earlier one airline just enough they will not require employees to get the vaccine. lauren: american airlines dangling perks if you would like to get you get an extra day off next year and $50 i don't think that convinces anybody who has a sense of pulling up their sleeves but united frontier, hawaiian requiring the job by october or november. stuart: the vaccine mandate is very much in play in the
11:30 am
airlines, some of the airlines. lauren: they interact with a lot of people. stuart: the white house says 90% of educators and school staff are now fully vaccinated. i think that was the teachers union who actually said that, the ceo of the academy in miami florida and she joins us now. layla, as i recall in the spring of this year, you said that you would not hire any teacher who had been vaccinated. you would not employ vaccinated people in your academy, why did you do that and what's the situation now. >> the situation is phenomenal at the moment because of the media frenzy that happened because of my staff in the vaccine it helped me recruit teachers and parents and faculty all over the country who are leaving the schools that are
11:31 am
forcing and mandating them to get the vaccine which they do not want to get, i'm not sure where the teachers union got her data from but i tell you that there teachers that are quitting the teaching industry for good, there teachers that are requiring, teachers that are homeschooling because they absolutely do not want to be forced to take the covid shot. stuart: is that what you objected to, being forced or persuaded or coerced into getting vaccinated or do you think there's something wrong with the vaccination in the first place. >> if you look at the large database which is the cdc but database they have over 12000 deaths already that have been reported there is a lawsuit that has been filed by a lawyer of tom rain where whistleblower has discussed there are several other adverse databases that are
11:32 am
not shown to the public and there's over 45000 deaths from the covid shot. you cannot force somebody to take a shot where the side effects is a possibility of death, not to mention all of the neurological issues that are clearly stated in the cdc government database, to me it is baffling and baffles my mind that so many people are being forced out of their industry, out of their jobs to take something that should not be mandated at all it should be a choice. stuart: we can argue all day long with deaths from coded vaccinations i'm not sure where your databases, i've not seen it but i want to talk about the parents, what do the parents think about this, no vaccination in school, what do they think. >> that's a great question, i have parents at that have moved from all over the country including canada to come to our
11:33 am
school, i had a parent a few weeks ago that drove 19 hours from maryland each way to come to our schools were attracting parents that are a lot more in alignment with our values and our desire to rely on our immune system and be free and not be forced to be vaccinated and not forced to be in a community where everyone is being forced to be vaccinated. i'm attracting a lot of freedom i'm a nonunion school man my husband sold our company three e years ago and were investing into education to transform education and is about mindfulness, happiness in our communities is extremely happy our children were very happy last year we did not mandate masks for one minute and we did not have any children with emotional issues like many of the other school have suicide for children has been on the
11:34 am
rise, anxiety is significantly on the rise and i've seen it firsthand because i have a school where parents did send their children to our school and masks and i'll tell you what i've seen firsthand the kids that are wearing masks for eight hours a day have a lot more anxiety and a lot more fear our school is based on not living on fear we focus on nutrition and wellness, we focus on the mind, body and soul and were doing pretty well last year we had 300 kids, yes we had covid cases but not one of her students or teachers went to the hospital and the majority of them did not wear masks for one day i'm very proud of that. stuart: that's very interesting and thank you for being with us today will follow up and see how you're doing in the future. now this. this is the story about trash cans $12000 trashcan's in san
11:35 am
francisco, you may think this is trivial not worthy of editorial time, i disagree, it's not just about trash cans it's about a city like many others in america that is gone off the rails the story begins when gavin newsom was the mayor, he's now the governor of california but back in the day he decided to remove 1500 trash cans because it was too much trash getting spilled all over by the homeless, of course if the homeless population continued to grow the trash problem grew getting rid of trash cans does not get rid of trash, the director of the public works department, he is the father of the $12000 trashcan debate, he has since then been arrested from which it emerged that he dated the current breed and given her gifts let's not digress too much
11:36 am
instead of bringing back the old trash cans the city decided it needed new ones which would have to withstand the homeless that how we got to the 12000-dollar cancer was deployed by the thousands can you imagine $12000 each, that won't solve the trash problem all the homeless and the tours problem who wants to visit a homeless camp or the crime problem it's the da and is not going to prosecute the shoplifters who's been working out, i used to live in san francisco, got my start in tv there back in 1975 i bought my first house there, it was a great city and now it's not, it's sinking under the weight of absurd political correctness the $12000 trash cans are the tip of the idiocy iceberg, maybe i'm being a little strong let's see what lauren simonetti thinks about that.
11:37 am
lauren: $400,000 is used to testing those they wanted different prototype and maybe the one that they select should be the new emblem for the city, the city, the issue on the streets of san francisco and the beautiful homes on campuses go high taxes, lawlessness and homelessness. stuart: the city off the rails, after more than a year canada reopened its border to american tourist, earlier the ceo of draftkings says they have ambitions to be like amazon we have the clip to show you next. ♪

(judith) in this market, you'll find fisher investments is different than other money managers. (other money manager) different how? don't you just ride the wave? (judith) no - we actively manage client portfolios based on our forward-looking views of the market. (other money manager) but you still sell investments that generate high commissions, right? (judith) no, we don't sell commission products. we're a fiduciary, obligated to act in our client's best interest.

(judith) yep, we do better when our clients do better. at fisher investments we're clearly different. i'm not always on my game. but lately, my uncle is, especially with his type 2 diabetes. with once-weekly trulicity most people reached an a1c under 7%. plus it could help you lose up to ten pounds. trulicity is for type 2 diabetes. it isn't for people with type 1 diabetes. it's not approved for use in children. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away
11:39 am
if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach pain, changes in vision, or diabetic retinopathy. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with sulfonylurea or insulin raises low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration, and may worsen kidney problems. ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity.

stuart: moments from now
11:42 am
governor cuomo will adjust the people of new york, at this moment his attorney has been speaking and simply saying the investigation was biased and a couple of minutes will hear from the governor himself i want to bring in joe concha, i don't nobody's going to say but i'm pretty sure he's not going to reside. >> were looking at richard nixon 50 years later in terms of the votes against nixon the republicans have turned on nixon and the votes are there to impeach, you can put up this defense as much as he likes but when you have a love and a credible accusers in the attorney general's report that is scathing and overwhelmingly damning i don't see what path he has, there's no talking way out of this at this point. stuart: as i understand that the moment that impeachment begins i don't know how you phrase it that when it's formalized, he steps aside from power and incomes lieutenant governor, that means his time is clearly
11:43 am
very limited i would say. >> i don't think he sees labor day and gets out of this month quite frankly, it be one thing if this was a partisan thing like brett kavanaugh republicans say one thing and democrat state another every democrats is against him being out but the burst into disturbing element bill de blasio is entertaining writing for governor of new york, imagine governor de blasio but the entire state some folks may have some issue with that. i'm going to move on to this, rashida tlaib dancing mask was at a wedding, this happened on the same day she tweeted about senator rand paul throwing a tantrum over the cdc new guidelines, why does this keep happening, the elites make the rules and then they break them and it keeps on happening. >> rules for the not for the, why it keeps happening because we have an apathetic media that
11:44 am
doesn't call them out on this, it's a daily thing at this point the whole democratic leader goes mask was at an indoor event mayor bowser mask was not a wedding the cdc high transition zone alexandria ocasio-cortez was massless in washington and with the photograph started being taken to put the mask back on when the photo stop she takes him back off and barack obama invite hundreds of people to a birthday party and indoor tent the tent was outdoors and that could've been used hosted 2024 olympics and the entire party including the former president mask was, the so-called leaders are flunking this behavior because they know they're not going to be called up by the media so they say i can get away with this because this is the way it goes a super spreader is now only applied to biker rallies, cuban-american protest and large church gatherings but not democratic weddings apparently. stuart: white house press secretary jen psaki as you know
11:45 am
interviewed by vogue she said being called nice is like nails on a chalkboard, she says it's sexist, when is it nice being a bad description of anyone. >> i got the nice last treatment high school i got that point but i don't think it's sexist she was to portray herself as being the tough secretary that can stand up to hostile press that isn't hostile outside of peter doocy, just ask questions. phoning pieces like this in vanity fair and magazines, they're not surprising and they only seem to exist during democratic in administrations, the trump administration when you have literally melania trump a model, a mom was worthy of the same treatment on this level but never received it because her last name is trump and yet sarah huckabee sanders a working mom kayleigh mcenany one of the hardest white-collar jobs you can find anywhere and that's a press secretary for a president
11:46 am
and here we are if you're democratic i administration you get to be on the cover of vogue or vanity fair and if you're republican wait your turn for years are now when you're gone and maybe we'll let you back on again. stuart: that's my personal opinion, will see you again soon i got a break in, this is breaking right now. the senate just passed the infrastructure built that literally just happened on capitol hill. i see the downslope 150, 160 points, show me they're down 30 and we got any input there on the change in the scope of the market or the behavior of the market, there it is the winners are the green and that is still winning the day. lauren: has concrete stuff infrastructure stuff it's up to and a quarter% on the passage of this infrastructure bill but for
