6:03 am
biden's 2 trillion-dollar spending bill. this as senator kyrsten sinema draws the line on any tax increases on corporations or high-income earners. the president admitting during the town hall on cnn that he does not have the votes to pass the corporate tax hike but still thinks democrats can get a deal done. lawmakers want the bill's framework by the end of the week, next week as we have been reporting. that's highly unlikely that we will see nancy pelosi's reached. the cdc signing on booster shots for moderna and johnson and johnson. the agency recommending boosters for anybody 65 or older or those who are at high risk of covid complications. recipients can now mix and match brands of doses. well, the manhunt for brian laundrie is now over. the fbi confirming by dental records that human remains discovered at florida nature reserve belong to laundrie. much of the area had been under
6:04 am
water until recently making the search challenging. laundrie was person of interest in the murder of gabby patito whose was found last month. alec baldwin's new movie, it killed the cinetographer and director was recovering from injuries, no word yesterday that led to the accidental shooting. futures this morning are searching for direction, capping off a big earnings week. we have another big week next week. flat earnings from technology companies impacting this morning's performance. dow industrials down 5. s&p down 3 and a quarter. look at the nasdaq down 50
6:05 am
points. shares of intel down better than 8% after hours following a disappointing earnings report. again, the supply disruption is the issue and we may be moving into a period where we will hear this increasingly as reason for not making expectations, social media stocks also taking a hit. take a look at this morning. snap is down 20% and missed revenue expectations pulling facebook and twitter down as well. intel down 10 and a quarter percent. facebook and twitter down 4 and a half percent a piece. today we are looking at american express, honeywell and joining me right now phil orlando and joining the conversation all among long fox business dagen mcdowell and former trump and george w. bush former state senior white christian whiten. thank you very much for being here. bill, i'm so happy to have you join the conversation this morning at this critical point in the earnings period. are we about to see a turn in
6:06 am
terms of the tech names acknowledging the issues with the supply disruptions. look at the selloffs going on this morning. what is your take? >> so good morning, maria, thank you again for having me back on this morning. third quarter earnings so far had been pretty gad. we are about 30% of the earning season and we thought earnings would be up 35% and we are up 36% so far and 10% of the companies who have reported have beaten consensus estimates by 13, 14% which is the sixth consecutive strong beat rate. at this point we are in good shape. when we get into the weeds, the technology company have been producing numbers that have been pretty good. up 20% give or take. it's economically sensitive companies that have pricing power that are producing the outsize numbers. up 50, 150%. so your premise is a gad one
6:07 am
that -- that the technology companies have not reported earnings that are as good as the cyclical companies and the supply chain issues, the port backlogs in the west coast, that is going away on the corporate earnings reports and to some degree we will likely influence the guidance we get from company management as well. maria: yeah, i'm just wondering if now is a gad time to sort of get out of the way. maybe we are on the doorstep of a selloff given the fact that i know that banks did really well and number of large dow components did really well but we are moving into a technology-focused earning reporting season and if you have to look at intel as a guide, this may very well set the tone for a selloff in markets, what do you want to do as an investor right now? >> yeah, that's a great question. remember, maria, that going into the august, september, october time frame at federated hermes
6:08 am
we were bracing to what we caught was a 5% correction stocks. we got a 6% pullback in september and october. we will put that in win column. over the last two weeks the market has rebounded strongly on the back of the early success and the earning season and we have rallied as you pointed out back to record high yesterday about 6% but if we are doing get into more challenging portion of the earning season and maybe technically we run into overhead resistance, could we retrace the 6% rally that we have enjoyed in the last couple of weeks and look at bench mark ten-year treasury yields spiking up to 1.7% from like 130 over the course of last month or so. so treasury yields are going in the wrong direction. we've had a rally in stocks, we could very well see a pullback
6:09 am
here. maria: treasuries down 1 and a half basis points. let me ask you about chinese developer evergrande, this comes after the ccp but the payment comes days before deadline which would plunge the company into formal default, phil, should we feel like this issue is off the table or is this just more subsidy from the chinese communist party? >> i think it's likely more subsidy. there are probably more questions than answers surrounding china right now as an investment. we took emerging markets back to neutral i guess just before labor day in part because we were nervous about the drum beat of bad news that was coming out of china. they account for 40% as you know of the emerging market index, second largest economy in the world so i think our best guess would be to stay on the sidelines with china. i don't know that we have a full field for what's going on there
6:10 am
and i -- i'd hate to lack at the evergrande news and jump in here because i think there's still another shoe to fall potentially. maria: good move, phil. let me take your attention back to the u.s. and the federal reserve because now we've got a new policy on trading stocks, phil. ban on policymakers from owning individual stocks and bonds. i mean, yeah, the move coming on the heels of reports of multiple federal reserve officials buying and selling stocks during the time that the central bank's policies were focused on fighting the economic impact of the pandemic. so you have the fed here controlling everything with stimulus and then we learned all of these officials have been buying and selling stocks. i recognize their likely wasn't anything illegal here, however, the optics aren't good. now they've got new rules in place, your thoughts? >> the appearance of impropriety, maria. i mean, this is like to some degree closing the barn door
6:11 am
after the horses have already left. these are policies that probably should have been put in place, you know, 100 years ago at the very beginning of the federal reserve and the reality is that we've got to have complete trust that the members of the federal reserve board of governors or the bank presidents are not, you know, trading their own account based upon information that they know which is critically important so i think the moves are fully justified. my concern, though, is that part of the noise surrounding this investigation, you know, might be a kabooky dance if you will as a means of justifying wholesale changes in the board of governors. remember that chair powell and vice chair clarita's terms expire at the end of january. randy as head of supervision
6:12 am
retired last week. we may see as when issue as justification for having president biden literally revamp or remake the -- the board of governors with the federal reserve with some new people, some new economists and the market as you know hates change particularly it's up to critical inflection point with the fed likely to change policy on the upcoming november third fomc meeting, so this is not coming at a great time in term of market confidence. maria: yeah, be careful of who you wish for when you don't know who that person is because the progressives are now focused squarely on the federal reserve. they want the the change for sure. elizabeth warren has already said she wants powell replaced and the word is that there's a lot of politicization going on around here, so it's a great point having said that where are these rules and updated rules in
6:13 am
terms of no trading for congress because the optics are not good, geed. phil, good to see you this morning. >> thank you very much for having me. have a great weekend. maria: as always, phil orlando. thank you, sir. we are just getting started this morning, coming up, no time to secure the country, president biden says he does not have time to go to the border and he cannot see the border crisis firsthand. he claims he and his wife have already been there and they know it, they've seen it over the years. we will get into it. and then the supply chain crisis, fuel tire crisis puts christmas in jeopardy. the port of long beach director mario cordero is here to give us an update plus the former ceo of mcdonalds usa ed rensi will weigh in on the impact of business. don't miss a moment of it. you're watching mornings with maria live on fox business. ♪ ♪

>> do you have plans to visit the southern word sneer. >> i've been there before and i haven't -- i know it well. i guess i should go down but the whole point is i haven't had a lot of time to go down. my wife jill has been down, she's been on both sides of the river and seen the circumstances there. maria: really? when was jill there? i was there 3 times. president biden at a cnn town hall claiming he's been to the border, when? it is still unclear if he actually has. is this another lie? biden blaming the damage by hurricanes as the reason that he hasn't visited as president yet despite spending 70 days in delaware. dagen, we have elicit drugs coming into the country every day, they are killing americans,
6:18 am
93,000 overdoses, human trafficking every day and every month, 2,000 people apprehended. 400,000 got aways i'm told by the border agents so far this year. we don't know their intentions, they may very well be causing havoc in the big cities. he hasn't been there because he has no idea it's worsened considerably under his watch so the bottom line is he hasn't been there as things have worsened. dagen: he hasn't been there as president and based on peter doocy's reporting over a period of time there is no evidence president biden has ever visited the border, not as president clearly but not as the vice president, not as a candidate, a senator or as peter would say a concerned citizen. there's no evidence he's ever been and this wide-open border is by design, it is for liberal
6:19 am
political purpose and at the same time they've layed the foundation for criminals to profit from human suffering and misery, whether it's drug abuse fentanyl poisonings or the trafficking of women and children into this country and by the way he mentions that his wife has been to the border, the first lady, that's great. what about your border tsar? what about kamala harris? she's in hiding quite frankly. maria: unbelievable. christian, give us your thoughts here? i'd like to know specifically when jill biden went to the border since he has in problem spewing out these things that may not be true at all? >> well, that was probably just another casual lie, at least it could have been in a friendly format. he's on cnn, left-wing network with anderson cooper battling through this. this is important to his presidency. quinnipiac came out with new
6:20 am
poll yesterday that had approval for biden at 38%. that's a danger zone for any president and get this on immigration, they asked question on immigration generally or border crisis specifically and only 25% of americans support what he does. 67% disapproved of his handling. to get to only 25%. think of how many registered democrats have to tell a pollster, stranger over the phone that they disapprove of the president. dagen said, this is an ideological article of faith for this group, they just want that border open, they see it as a moral good even though it's quite the opposite. it's stunning. maria: yeah, it's absolutely stunning and by the way jill biden, i don't remember here being ever and regardless she's not the president and dagen makes the right point, where is the border tsar, it's pretty stunning there's no time to secure the border and ensure that the country is safe.
6:21 am
he could say that and get away with it. we will see if it comes up on any news stations today. when we come back, dealing with the supply chain crisis, sending the national guard in to drive trucks, really? president biden would consider using troops but the white house later pushed back, the mix messaging next. ♪ ♪ ♪

with amerisave's consistently low mortgage rates, your little girl can go wherever her dreams take her, like toward a career in the ethics of rhythm and movement. anyway, good luck with that, because amerisave can only help with the part of the dream you can buy -- with money. >> you'll start to see gas prices come down as we get by and going into the winter -- i mean, excuse me, into next year in 2022. i don't have a near-term answer. >> would you consider the national guard chain to help with the supply chain issue? >> absolutely, positively i will do that. >> driving trucks? >> yes, if we can't move and increase the number of truckers which we are in the process of doing. maria: wait a second.
6:25 am
the national guard driving trucks? the white house is already having to walk back those comments from the president. an official telling cnn that the administration is not pursuing the use of the national guard on a federal level to help with the supply chain disruptions. joining me right now is florida congressman michael waltz, member of house armed services committee and he's the only green berete in congress. thank you very much for being. what are your thoughts on the president using the national guard to drive trucks? >> maria, i'm still serving in the national guard and sadly i think the commander in chief needs a little bit of how the national guard works. the national guard works for the governors. unless he's prepared to do a federal or national mobilization
6:26 am
to deal with this, they don't work for him, they work for the governor. secondly, they have been completely worn out over the last couple of between all of the covid mobilizations, their overseas mobilizations, wild fires, hurricanes, you know, we have to stop treating the national guard as some kind of up and down aid for the issue of the day and thirdly stop the ridiculous policies that keep flowing out of washington incentivizing people not to work between federal stimulus checks, state stimulus checks, federal unemployment, state unemployment. if you have children they tripled the child tax credit that they now want to make permanent. that's the problem, incentivizing people not to work but then the final thing, a lot of the national guard truck drivers are truck drivers in their civilian jobs. you're going to be robbing peter to pay for paul and it's just ridiculous, maria, and clearly
6:27 am
somebody in the white house had to walk it back. maria: that's what's outraging me. to look at the national guard when we are already questioning readiness in our military and i've got to ask you about the readiness, look, let me just point out that in president biden's budget which is really bernie sanders' budget there's not a dime additional for the defense department. there's no additional money for the defense budget and our adversaries continue to rise. china has now we understand according to reports conducted not one but two hypersonic weapon tests this summer, congressman. these tests apparently shocked and surprised our u.s. military intelligence official. will you speak to that, the importance of this, the threat that this is and whether or not our military readiness is up to the job right now?
6:28 am
>> yeah, maria, i was just actually out at the space command being briefed on this. i won't get into the details but i could tell you this is a sputnik moment. this was such a leap for how they were able to conduct this test, so think of it this way, when normally when an intercontinental ballistic missile launches, it's traveling on predictable trajectory. shooting it down is hard with missile defenses. it's like hitting a bullet with a bullet in space but we can do it. the hypersonic missiles are like a bullet that can maneuver, so it can maneuver left and right, up and down, different altitudes and importantly it with maneuver around the radars so that we can't even see them and what was so alarming about this test is they were able to leave it in orbit. new they could do that for an indefinite period of time where it just sits up there until they're ready for it to drop and then it drops at such speeds,
6:29 am
comes crashing down that it's too fast for missile defenses. this is a first strike weapon and game-changer and we need a wake-up call in the white house but across the united states about what the chinese under xi are meaning to do in replacing the united states and threatening the united states and this thing can take out anything anywhere in the world before we can respond. maria: that is absolutely right. i've been raising my head about the threat from communist china for several years now. what do you think is going on here, congressman, real quick before you go. joe biden refuses to raise the origins of covid-19 with xi jinping, every time he speaks with him, it didn't come up and rolls over in terms of policy on u.s.-china relations giving hauwei a pass despite the fact that hauwei has been stealing intellectual property from our country, our companies in this country for decades.
6:30 am
what is joe biden and this administration's motivation or are they just inept? >> well, the other thing about the hypersonic missile it's a culmination, maria, of 20 years of stealing their way to the top through cyber and mergers and acquisitions and research. it's incredibly sophisticated and now the chickens are coming home to roost and in terms of what's motivating it, one is a flawed view of the world and if we are nice to adversaries we will get them to the negotiating table, they will be nice back. we saw that how fell apart in alaska where we were lectured on american soil by the chinese foreign ministry but the other piece is this flawed-old thinking that eventually they will change and as jen psaki just said in advance to first-strike weapon, well, we welcome competition. this isn't competition, they are looking to replace us and this was a huge step in that
6:31 am
direction. maria: yes, it was. congressman, good to see you, we appreciate your time and your service. michael waltz joining us this morning. >> thanks, maria. maria: we will be back.

maria: welcome back, good friday morning. thank you very much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo and it is friday october 22nd, a look at markets this half an hour. we do have pretty earnings miss to tell you about. dow industrials up 33, the s&p 500 one and three quarters but the nasdaq is lower, that's down 32 points and that has to do with the misses within technology. yesterday not a bad day, s&p 500 hit new record close yesterday. the nasdaq also up on strong earnings data yesterday. the nasdaq was up 94 and the s&p up 13 but the dow was hit by the selloff in ibm shares, down 6 points at 4:00 o'clock on wall

6:36 am
>> yes, and yes. [cheers and applause] >> the mandates are working. cheryl: well, the president's comments come as first responders from coast to coast are quitting or getting fired over vaccine mandates. increase in reports in the faa of pilot distractions related to new rules. the companies with over 100 employers to get workforce vaccinated. queen elizabeth has been released from the hospital after being -- she's been using a cane

[laughter] maria: lego is great. cheryl, thank you very much. cheryl: you bet. maria: the technology giant failing to provide details about its cross check program. that program reportedly shielded vip users from the company's normal content moderation rules.
6:38 am
the oversight board saying, quote, on some occasions facebook fail today provide relevant information to the board while in other instances the information it did provide was incomplete. facebook also failing to mention cross check to the board when it decided to ban former president donald trump from the platform this spring. joining me right now the disruptive tech research founder and chief analyst lou. lou, thank you very much for being here. >> good morning. maria: the oversight board was created in 2018 to apparently increase transparency but you can't increase transparency if the board is not told what the company is doing, executives are pretty much doing the opposite of transparency. >> yeah, it's laughable. i hate to treat mark zuckerberg like a punching bag but actually i don't because he deserves it. he created the oversight board in the aftermath of scandal and he did to increase transparency and accountability and time and time again internal documents keep outing facebook executives
6:39 am
for being anything but that. i mean, it was a couple of weeks ago we were here talking about the mental health issues that they've known about that caused by their platform that they were trying to keep from the public. so i think it's really laughable here any time that mark zuckerberg tries to say that they will do the right thing. he's really tried to make himself someone about free speech and then he does exactly the opposite here. the thing that struck me the most is that he tried to tell the oversight board that the cross-check program is only a handful of users really and 5.8 million users that are exempt from content moderation rules and it's insane that many people not having to be regulated. maria: all of this while the company spends money trying to support the democrats in an election really interfering in the election as mollie hemingway has written about from the federalist. so it's obviously a political organization. do the advertisers know that because apparently in the
6:40 am
journal this morning there's a story that it's struggling to figure out how many users it has. many users have double accounts, triple accounts and that's not -- that's counted as different people, internal research finds that new users with multiple accounts are actually undercounted, lou, that they going to do a mia christmas ulpa? >> we are not even in the wake of one scandal and another one is coming to light when where we can't trust the data that they are providing. first and foremost facebook is an advertising platform. if advertisers can't have faith and trust in the data that they've getting about the markets that they're spending money on, they are going to start bailing ship. it is the largest platform out there so it is a situation that facebook historically has been able to mitigate so i think you are going to get more scrutiny. they are going to have to be a lot more transparent and really the only people that have leverage here to force facebook to be more transparent is the
6:41 am
advertisers. they are their customers. in this case it's really -- i think this is 20 plus scandals and crises that have come up for facebook and time and time again investors shrug it up and hopefully for once they will put principles over profit. maria: well, we will see. we will see if investors start reacting as well. so far it's been getting the funding of investors that's for sure. lou, great to talk to you, thank you so much. lou joining us on social media. nba in hot water again in china. wait till you hear how the nba is rolling over for the ccp again. the ccp removing celtics games after one of the players speaks out of the communist dictator xi jinping, that's next. ♪ ♪

jinping calling a brutal dictator. washington examiner commentary fellow zachary wrote an op-ed on the story and lebron and kaepernick are. zachary, great to have you and i love your op-ed here and it's incredible to me that the country could look at this and think everything is wrong with what he said. everything that he said is accurate. >> right, and i think the most interesting part of it is that he's not going to face much backlash here among americans but from companies like nike who already sort of blacklisted him because -- giving him endorsement deal would shut down the stores in turkey who he also spoke out against turkish dictator erdogan. believe in something even if you're sacrificing everything.
6:47 am
this is what canter is doing, risking career prospects and, yeah, he's not going the face much backlash from you or me and everyday american but from companies like nike he's sort of untouchable right now. maria: well, it's pretty incredible. what will nike do? i mean, nike is making sneakers and products in china and we know what's going on there in terms of the genocide which has been called genocide by two administrations by the way, mike pompeo and the trump administration and also antony blinken in the biden administration. so what are we waiting for? are we waiting for the ccp to invade taiwan to do more damage on the world stage before we call it out as a nation? >> right. i mean, i don't really understand much of it either. i mean, kanter said back in 2018 that nike would not give him an
6:48 am
endorsement deal because of his speaking out against erdogan and it shut down stores in turkey. a company like china which nike has massive investment in and the nba has massive investment in this amplifies this to a whole other level for him. maria: it really does. christian whiten, weigh in here. >> yeah, it's interesting, you know, so many of our corporations are still so pro-china despite all of the evidence. goldman sachs giving itself a big pat on the back for giving ownership of unit in china, previously 51% and now owns it outright and put a glowing statement of how it's done 17 years of brilliant business in china. this is sort of interesting development usually when athletes speak up is on behalf of the left or on behalf of the ccp. is kanter, zachary, is he getting support from his teammates or from others in the league? >> i haven't seen that yet.
6:49 am
i'm interest today see if the nba put out a statement. i remember they put statement when houston rockets tweeted out free hong kong. murray ended up walking that back. the 76ers games might be censored on platforms like tencent. i don't know if we will see anything from nba players. i doubt that. i'm more interested to see if the nba comes out and gives support statement in support of enes kanter. maria: that's what i want to see as well. let's see how they handle this and before you go, what is your take in terms of all of these american companies getting ready to go open up shop, own their own business if you look at wall street anyway because the ccp is giving wall street firms the hundred pot to be able to operate 100%, they gave it to jp morgan and they gave it to goldman sachs and what should
6:50 am
they need to understand about the impact of china and shareholders? >> i think the biggest thing that once you open up in china and you open yourself to that mart and chase to that market, the market will sort of control you. the nba has repeatedly have to pander to china with basketball academies. they are trying to chase the next yao ming to increase market share and as soon as one person steps out of line whether it's murray or kanter now, the chinese market says we will step in and censor the game and take you off the air wave and they need to be aware of that. maria: they sure do. zachary, great to see you, great op-ed. >> thanks for having me. maria: quick break and let the squid games begin with your pets. pet owners inspired by netflix hit show and it's making a buzz this morning, stay with

i -- i don't know if i'd go there. it's a little disturbing. maria: yeah, it's uncomfortable for sure, you're right, what do you think, christian? >> well, i'm glad that we are getting back to what the internet was really meant for which is pictures by cats. you heard that the internet was created by the pentagon, advance research agency and to communicate in nuclear war but we all know the real reason for the internet, for broadband and encryption that we have come up sharing pictures of cats and finally back and jokes aside, it's a pretty bold move and reflects well on the move by netflix to put this extremely violent but unconventional piece of art on the air. you can't do this on network tv and you can't even do it on cable but you can do it on netflix. maria: that's very funny, actually. quick break and then rising inflation concerns. disappointing technology earnings, that's weighing on markets and, of course, we are lacking at bitcoin as well, another surge in the price of

maria: welcome back many good friday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us, i'm maria bartiromo. it is friday, october 22. your top stories right now. the white house walking back comments from president biden last night, he said he would bring in the national guard to help with supply chain issues including driving trucks. florida congressman michael waltz reacting last hour. >> the national guard works for the governors. unless he's prepared to do a federal or national mobilization, to deal with this, they don't work for him, they work for the govern nors. we have to stop treating the national guard as as some kind
7:01 am
of band-aid for the issue of the day. thirdly, how about stop these ridiculous policies that keep flowing out of washington. maria: we are watching the ongoing supply chain crisis coming up we will talk with the director of the long beach port coming up to give us anup date. attorney general merrick garland grilled on capitol hill over a variety of issues as he is asked to appoint a special council to investigate hunter biden's shady art dealings and business deals across the world. markets this morning are higher, take a look. we've had a pretty good move just in the last 20 minutes or so, the dow industrials up 47, the s&p 500 still flat but in the plus column, nasdaq is lower on some weaker than expect canned technologies earnings. the nasdaq down 34 points. mixed showing yesterday on wall street. we had another record high for the s&p 500 but the dow finished lower, dragged down by i a weak performance of ibm, nasdaq was

"mornings with maria" is live right now. now some of the top stories that we are watching this morning. fractured democrats scrambling to find new sources of revenue in order to pay for president biden's now $2 trillion spending bill, that's what they say it is. it is obviously included gimmicks in that, to make it that price. senator kyrsten sinema is drawing the line on any tax increases on corporations or high income earners, she says it's not good for the economy. the president admits he does not
7:03 am
have the votes to pass a corporate tax increase but he thinks democrats can get a deal done. lawmakerses want the bill's framework done by the end of next week, that is nap than's date. as -- nancy pelosi's date. it is you unlikely to get a report ton 31st. the cdc signing off on booster shots from moderna and johnson & johnson recommending boosters for those 65 or older or those with high risks of covid complicationses. recipients can also mix and match brands of doses for that booster. the manhunt for brian laundrie is over, the fbi confirming through dental records that the human remains discovered at a florida nature reserve do in fact belong to brian laundrie. investigators say that much of the area had been under water until recently making the search challenging. laundrie as you know was a person of interest in the murder of gabby petito whose body was found in a wyoming park last month. and tragedy on the et set ofal
7:04 am
alec baldwin's new movie. the actor fired a prop gun on the set in new mexico. it killed the cinematographer. the director was flown to the hospital and pronounced dead. the directors is recovering from injuries in the hospital. no word on the details the that led up to that shooting. time for the word on wall street, top investors watching your money. joining me is chief economist lindsey piegza, rose cliff capital ceo and managing partner mike murphy and anderson capital management chief investment officer, peter anderson. great to see you. happy friday to you. mike murphy, with the biden stimulus plan fueling the ongoing inflation surge according to new research by the san francisco federal reserve, saying too much money flowing into the economy is what
7:05 am
is fueling the inflation. it says biden's american rescue plan played a big role in the inflation spike. what are your thoughts? >> good morning, maria. i think it's pretty obvious and to hear it from the san francisco fed i think is helpful. but the more free money you give to people, the less likely they're going to go out and a find a job and the more likely they're going to go out and spend that money and push the prices of the underlying goods higher. so anyone who is surprised by this, i think isn't really paying attention to what's going on. we really -- if we want to help people and coming off covid obviously people needed some help, in order to help these people we need to get them jobs so they don't rely on the of government and they can rely on themselves and live the american dream. i'm not surprised by this. we need to limit the amount of more free spending and more free money that we're going to give in this new plan. the lower we can keep that, the better it's going to be for all of of us. maria: mike, let me turn your
7:06 am
attention to the spac that is in the news this morning. you took your company public through a spac and check out this performance of the spac that former president trump is about you to enter, this deal to create a new social media app. it's gaining real support. the deal seeing a 350% gain if the spac stock yesterday after rising more than 400% earlier in the day. it is also up this morning another 50%. your thoughts? >> absolutely unbelievable, maria. you know, so we've heard from president trump that he wanted to go out, he's been silenced by all of big tech. he can't get his word out. so he announces this deal for a spac, put a lot of -- caught a lot of people offguard with this and you see the massive move to the upside yesterday. it broke all records as far as volume goes, it broke all records as far as price gains go for spacs. it is trading at a market cap,
7:07 am
call it 10, 12, $15 billion. if this is going to be competing with facebooks and the twitters of the world, there's a lot more room to the upside. however, as of you've seen over time, when you have these huge moves up in any stock, a lot of times there's selling and you have moves down. to the people watching at home, maria, if this is something you want to be involved with, be involved. but this isn't something you want to go out and liquidate your retirement account and put it all in. you can make a bet on this without realizing -- you have to realize it could have a correction but long-term this could be something that competes, you know. the president wants to get -- the former president wants to get the truth out. i you know he's a big fan of yours and probably watching the program right now. i think we need this. i think the upside is huge. maria: yeah, it could be a huge upside. but i'm glad that you mentioned the near term potential of perhaps it coming back down-to-earth. you don't see a lot of 350% moves in one day on a stock.
7:08 am
thank you for that, mike. lindsey, let's talk fed, the federal reserve announcing new policies with regard to trading, a ban on policy makers from owning individual stocks and bonds. the move coming on reports of multiple fed officials buying and selling stocks. your thoughts. >> this new rule comes as the chairman of the central bank, jerome powell, is now the latest target of his individual financial transactions. last month, the controversy surrounded fed officials kaplan and roseengrin and did leave to the departure of both fed officials from their post at the central bank earlier than expected. it doesn't appear that any wrong doing actually occurred. all financial transactions were reported, reviewed and you approved. fed officials are beholden to very strict standards when it
7:09 am
comes to financial transactions. although to be fair, members of the central bank do have direct influence on monetary policy, interest rates, and then of course more direct influence on financial markets. so the argument being fed officials should be held to an even higher standard when it comes to financial transactions. but in either case, i think it's very clear that this undermines i think the fed's credibility, just the mere appearance of controversy at a time when the fed is trying to navigate the economy back to normal and the chairman himself faces a very uncertain renomination at this point. maria: yeah. especially since you've got the progressives wanting to take him down. very well said. it's really about optics and the appearance here, nothing illegal. peter, let's talk bitcoin for a second. the cryptocurrency continues to just shock the sceptics, having a big week, the first u.s. bitcoin futures exchange traded
7:10 am
fund debuted on the new york stock exchange. that was a real success. here it is at 63,273. you're not a buyer, are you? >> no, not at all, maria. you know, recently a poll was taken about the current holders of bitcoin. do you know that one-third of them have said they're quite knowledgeable about bitcoin and the other two-thirds have said i'd like to learn more. well, i don't know about you, but i would like to learn more before i step into a new asset class and this just seems to be trading purely on sentiment. you know, there's no economic fundamentals to drive the price and i do think it is quite a bubble. maria: yeah. it's amazing to see where it is. what a year it has had. lindsey piegza, mike murphy, peter anderson, a pleasure to see you all. thanks very much for that word on wall street.
7:11 am
we need more time to talk fundamentals next time. coming up the supply chain crisis reaching a fever pitch, the port of long beach executive director is here, reacting to the president's town hall last night and how no plan to ease that backlog seems to be on the table. what will loosen up this crisis? and then senator joe manchin admitting he did in fact consider leaving the democrat party. we'll explore what's going on behind the scenes, the party in-fighting in the midst of the spending plan negotiation. then october is breast cancer awareness month, we are talking with one of the top breast cancer surgery doctors in the country on the struggles of the patients in post-pandemic world. joining the conversation all morning long is dagen mcdowell and christian whiton, you're watching "mornings with maria" live on fox business. we'll be right back.

7:15 am
maria: welcome back. senator joe manchin now says he has in fact considered leaving the democratic party. he said he would consider becoming an independent if he became too much of an embarrass emment todemocrats because of h- embarrass ament to democrats. this as sparks fly behind closed doors with senator manchin and sanders reportedly butting heads, telling axios that manchin raised his fist to the vermont senator saying he would be happy with zero dollars in social spending. christian, we'll see how this plays out. so far, it looks like senator manchin is sticking to his principles. your thoughts? christian: it is. it's interesting, because it comes on the heels of his colleague, senator sinema, being
7:16 am
followed into the bathroom by progressive aca testify visits and manchin was targeted by progressives, lived on a houseboat in washington, kind of eccentric and progressive activists on kayaks were heck wereheckling him. donald trump won west virginia in 2020 with 69% of the vote. manchin is an outlier as a democrat in west virginia. it's tantalizing to think -- this would be the first time if he switched, it was 20 years ago when jim jeffers switched parties. it was short lived as it turned out. i think at the end of the day, the fact that the democrats can't countenance one or two senators. it's interesting. maria: what gets me is that
7:17 am
there is not more upset and outrage about the mob. this is how they deal with things. camping out in front of your house, following senators into the lady's room, i mean, you know, why is this accepted? and then president biden says oh, well, it's part of the process. dagen: it's not acceptable in any way, shape or form. i want to point something out. joe manchin's principles are firmly liberal. he is not a conservative in any way, shape or form. senator kyrsten sinema has come out and is against any increases in corporate, individual or capital gains tax rates, in the top marginal rate. she came out against them. and that letter that joe manchin wrote to schumer over the summer where he said this is my bottom line on spending, it was about a trillion and-a-half dollars but he was in favor of raising the
7:18 am
top marginal tax rate and the corporate tax rate and capital gains taxes. so that's just old school democrat. the problem for him is, he's in a party where it's controlled by socialists and communists, quite frankly, but he's no republican. he's no conservative. and i would argue he is no independent either. maria: yeah. where this goes is anybody's guess. i spoke with one democrat last weekend and he told me there's a 30% chance, 30% chance is the number he put out, that nothing gets done. so we'll see. dagen: pray on that. americans should pray on that. christian: that would be great. dagen: the medicare hospital trust fund runsut of mope in less than five years -- money in less than five years. 9% benefit cut immediately. but the democrats want to create vast new entitlement welfare society but they can't even fix -- they don't have the guts to
7:19 am
fix what we've already got, that seniors rely on for their healthcare and to pay their bills. maria: well, you make another really important point because that's another thing that bothers me. the dishonesty about it. i mean, to call it a $2 trillion plan when we know it's actually $4 trillion that they're jaming into a $2 trillion umbrella is also dishonest because they're saying, like for example, the child credit goes away in a year. no, it doesn't. these programs are not going to go away. so they're just trying to fit this mold of, yeah, you know, we're going to make it $2 trillion by ending these programs. when everybody knows these programs are not ending. we'll take a break. when we come back, the real plan to ease pain at the pump, the be president admitting there's no near term answer at all. we'll talk with alaska senator dan sullivan on that. ♪ ♪

>> you'll start to see gas prices come down as we get by and going into the winter -- i mean, excuse, into next year, 2022. i must tell you, i don't have a near term answer. there's two things i could do. i could go in the pee dwroim pem reserve and take out and reduce the price of gas maybe 18 cents or so a gallon. it's still going to be above 3 bucks. maria: well, there you have it. we have no plan. gasoline prices are soaring across the country, president biden says he does not have answers despite the fact that he reversed energy policy when he be first walked into office which sent prices higher. the national average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.38 a gallon this morning, regular unleaded reached $7.59 at one gas station in gorda, california, that we know,
7:24 am
according to reports. joining us now, alaska senator dan sullivan. senator, good the to have you today. your thoughts on this. >> good morning, maria. maria: assess the impact on of your constituents there in alaska. >> well, look, the president said there's no short-term plan but there's no long-term plan. you mentioned it from day one, day one of this administration, they've been focused on actually killing american energy and american energy jobs and they're doing that through restricting production, strong-arming financial institutions not to invest in american energy, killing pipelines. so we're seeing the ramifications of this. this entire increase in prices across the country is self-inflicted by the biden administration, their policies of killing american energy are working. and it's really working if alaska where hardly a day goes
7:25 am
by, maria, where they're not trying to restrict more energy production. but here's the thong. winters is coming. winter is coming. and we're going to see higher prices and this is going to hurt all american families. working families in particular. so it's a disastrous policy that is self-inflicted in terms of a wound to the american people, fully caused by the biden administration. maria: yeah, i mean, i don't understand why he would kill the u.s.'s ability to be an independent energy producer and then turn around and plead with opec to put more supply in the market to push prices lower. this is taking americans' disposable income away. they can't spend on other things because they've got to fill up their tank of gas with much higher prices. >> well, you're exactly right. it's the most regressive tax you can think of and it hurts working families. but the point you just made is
7:26 am
also really important one. we are -- they are empowering our adversaries. you you know, we're importing two times as much oil from russia than we did a year ago. at the end of the trump administration we were energy independent for the first time in seven decades. now we have the national security advisor, the president, the secretary of energy begging opec, opec, which includes many of our adversaries, to produce more. i had a meeting with the secretary of energy a couple of months ago and i said ma a dam m secretary, via better idea than begging opec to produce more oil, how about getting the jack boot of the federal government off the throat of american energy producers, that's what we need. what that will empower workers. that will make sure we're strong
7:27 am
with energy independence. this is a lose, lose, lose, policy. we have the highest -- maria: it will also create jobs. yeah, go ahead. >> we have the highest environmental standards in the world in alaska, in america, in terms the of american energy production. when you outsows -- outsource the production of energy, you are hurting the environment. the russians don't care about the environment. neither to the iranians or saudis. maria: as he's empowering our adversaries, our adversaries are rising. we know what china is doing, the ccp going into hong kong and throwing freedom fighters in jail, laying down the law, stealing intellectual property. the world is watching taiwan. biden vowed to protect taiwan if the ccp attacks taiwan. no secret the ccp wants to
7:28 am
reunify taiwan. do do you expect china to invade taiwan? >> i think it's important that the taiwan issue is a critical issue for the 2 sst century -- 21st century, between dictatorship and freedom. we need to be focused -- you know, over 25 years ago, maria, i was a marine deployed to the taiwan strait as part of an amphibious task force. we've had decades where we have shown resolve and commitment with regard to taiwan many. here's the thing. it's not just words they that the president's speaking. once again, it's actions. he is cutting -- he's proposed a budget to cut our defense budget, to shrink the navy. maria: that's right. >> this is what matters most in terms of deterrence, having a strong military and when you be put forward a budget that's going to cut readiness which is what he's doing, that invites aggression. maria: yeah, unfortunately it certainly does. p senator, thanks very much for

the economy is to always look ahead not just where we are today. today is short. there are shortages and bottlenecks, et cetera. the good news is going into 2022, the chips are coming. you see it in taiwan's data. you see freight rates are starting to come down which is a sign that indeed the congestion in china is starting to fade. unfortunately, you still have this surge of ships in the ports. but looking ahead, the chips are here. you're going to see a ramp-up in auto production hopefully here in the fourth quarter, also into the first quarter of 2022. and then you're going to have potentially a boatload of stuff in stores, at auto dealers, and so right now no question, prices are high. they're too high. they're squeezing low end consumers in particular. not just gas prices, but prices of other goods including cars. but again, looking ahead, we think this is indeed still transitory and that prices will come down significantly as we go
7:39 am
into 2022. so it's a very, very volatile economic backdrop to be sure. maria: so nancy, what can you tell us about the macro story. we're smack dab in the middle of the third quarter reporting season. growth has come way down for the upcoming quarter. the atlanta federal reserve was at 6%. now they're at a half of a percent growth. what's your take on broad macro growth in the country year-end and into 2022? >> no question, the third quarter really got hit by the delta variant and you pulled down economic activity and function and production and so i was wrong on the strength in the third quarter, as you just said, we think it might be closer to 2%. here in the fourth quarter you saw it yesterday with the unemployment claims data continuing to grind lower, with the delta variant now clearly down, you are seeing the economy reopen, helping port activity, to consumer spending, i would stick with a 6% number here for
7:40 am
the fourth quarter. as you go into 2022, we still think we'll be above trend growth, something closer to 4%. we have the healthiest banking system we've had in a long time. you've certainly seen that in third quarter earnings, definitely better than what we had coming back out of the last recession in 2009- '10. you have healthy credit markets thanks to the fed and thanks to very, very healthy companies. they have indeed deleverred to some extent. so although interest rates are up, you have a very healthy consumer. so the combination of those three things we think does give the economy the act to bounce back here in the fourth quarter, 6% as the delta variant fades, as production picks back up and as consumers, what i would be optimistic on the service sector of the economy, you'll find a lot of airplane tickets under christmas trees this season. people have too much stuff and they're looking to get out and travel and travel again. so i think the service sector, the travel sector is going to be
7:41 am
particularly robust as you go into later into the fourth quarter and 2022. maria: yeah. people need a break after this pandemic. but than circumstance real quick before you -- nancy, real quick, before you go, your thought on the price of oil. is that going to cut into some of this disposable spending. >> that's really sad. right now you have a great backdrop for the u.s. consumer, even the low end consumer. but our consumer confidence survey is broke unout on the downside, below covid recession lows and we directly you attributed that to the energy crisis, particularly squeezing that low end consumer. and so, yes, it could crimp the holiday selling season. but this is really, really a bigger headwind to the foreign economy more than it is to the u.s. economy. we are starting to see the oil rig count increase here in the united states, not as much as we had back in 2010,-11, to be sure.
7:42 am
it is grinding higher. you're seeing central banks tighten. russia this morning raised rates. i think in 2022 you're going to have a surge in the oil price come back and hit a lot of these foreign weaker economies who get hit much harder than we do from oil prices. maria: always a pleasure to see you. thanks so much. >> thank you. maria: fancy lazar joining -- nancy la a czar joining us there. october is breast cancer awareness month. we are speaking with one of the leading surgeons in the country, dr. alicia port will join us on what women need to know during this month and beyond. then, we are bringing back the instagram stars, next week we highlight influencers who made a living on the app, see a new star every day next week, our insta stars week

when you have a rock you can depend on for life, you'll be unstoppable. that's why over 5,500 companies rely on prudential's retirement and workplace benefits. who's your rock? maria: welcome back. well, october is breast cancer awareness month. breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women many one of our own fox business family members jackie deangeles shared her very emotional story with us yesterday. she was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago. my next guest is here to tell us about the progress being made in breast cancer research and what we need to know. joining us is mount sinai chief
7:47 am
of breast surgery, dr. alicia port. great to see you this morning. can't tell you how grateful we are that you're spending the time talking with us. will you assess where we are? i know there's been a lot of progress. where would you say we are with regard to the fight against breast cancer. >> first of all, thank you so much for having me, maria. it's always a pleasure and thank you for getting important information out there, as always. we have made a lot of progress in terms of the fight against breast cancer. many people don't know this but for example between 2000 and 2010 in that decade alone the death rate from breast cancer dropped about 2% year, so if you had been diagnosed with breast cancer after 2010, basically you're 20 to 30% more likely to survive than pre-2000. that's huge progress. of course, even one death from
7:48 am
breast cancer is too many. so we do have a long way to go. and there's certain types of breast cancer that still remain elusive in terms of optimal treatment. maria: i mean, i know that there are advancements in treatment, not just chemotherapy, radiation, but also oral medicines, a pill. we had our own jackie deangeles on this program yesterday, her doctors were using her breast tissue for her reconstruction. tell me about the treatments and what has changed over the years and also a bit about the reconstruction when it comes to this cancer. >> sure. well, exactly as you point out, you know, one of the reasons why breast cancer treatment has become really much more acceptable to women in terms of reconstruction is the options are so much greater than they were even five or 10 years ago. we are doing a lot more nipple
7:49 am
saving mastectomies, saving the skin of the nipple while removing all the breast tissue behind can be a huge improvement esthetically. absolutely there are more options related to the kind of implants we use and also as you mentioned, using one's own tissue typically from the belly to reconstruct the breast. that gives an incredibly natural look and feel and unlike implants don't really need to be replaced. and so that's been -- we've made progress and strides in that. it used to be we would take not only the soft tissue of the belly, we would take the muscle and that could leave women with a lot of strength deficits and so forth. now it's really just soft tissue and skin and so that's been a huge area of improvement. in terms of the pills, we have a lot of options. the pills are typically used to address the fact that most breast cancers are hormonally
7:50 am
set or stimulated. the pills are an anti-hormonal treatment and we have multiple different options in that front. the reason why the multiplicity of options is so important is that not -- there's no one size fits all and not all women do well or tolerate one type of medication. so it's always so great to be able to have a backup plan and to have multiple things to offer different women. again, no one size fits all. maria: yeah. so let's talk about testing and mammograms. there was some changes in terms of when a woman should first get a mammogram and how often we should be getting mammograms. tell us about the importance of testing, what you're seeing and in terms of what age would you suggest we start getting tested? >> sure. i agree with you, i think there has been a lot of mixed
7:51 am
messaging about optimal age to start mammograms, how often to get them, what does it depend on your age group and in general those of us who are in the trenches kind of doing this every day know that in general for women of average risk of breast cancer, you don't have any other main risk factors, starting at age 40 and yearly thereafter is really the best way to go. mammograms do save lives, maria. they save lives by picking up cancers earlier. and they also, some of the research that we've done here at mount sinai and the dubin breast center shows that not only do mammograms save lives but we're also even able to save those lives by doing less extreme treatments. so for example, one of the lesser known facts is that if your cancer was picked up on a mammogram and therefore most likely smaller, you're way less
7:52 am
likely to be told you need a mastectomy, removing the whole breast, and may be able to have a smaller surgery, less invasive, less disfiguring like a lumpectomy. women, mammograms, the cancers are typically picked up earlier, way less likely to need chemotherapy and so while the treatment options are great, chemotherapy and so forth, if we can cure the cancer with less invasive aggressive treatment, so much better. maria: of course. yeah. dr. port, it's great to see you and thanks for all that you do, saving lives every day. >> thank you for having me. maria: dr. alicia port. thank you very much. we'll be right back.

8:06 am
crisis in supply chain what i can tell you, is the collaborative spirit of key players in supply chain reached a very high level i am very comfortable by the fact, that talking to major companies who are interested in moving their cargo -- more particularly sthaipz have not -- going back, opportunities i pleased collaborative spirit we have been engaged in with various parties mario give me he take us back, tell us really how this all started, because, for those of our viewers may not have been following this from day one, why do you have such a backup? of. >> number one i think the really the problem with
8:07 am
covid-19 pandemic. that -- you know, presented to the world early 2020, again, the not immune from what occurs. the shutdowns lack of labor, and was involved in very, very tragedy health pandemic that we've had, frankly the supply chain has been fragile all along, and, as you know, many of us here have been advocating for investment in infrastructure, not just in roads and bridges but maritime infrastructure so part of this really i highlights the important need of the essentially operation, so, in it is a global crisis many factors one of the things seek in china now they are gearing back manufacturing because of electrical demand from grid can't handle the power that is required so there is is a factors involved here the good news is people are recognizing how essentially the supply chain is important,
8:08 am
that going forward in production in this industry. >> such a great point that you are making we hear don't hear a lot when that hear lawmakers in washington negotiating, a reconciliation package also talking about infrastructure package, and yet where is the investment? in our maritime businesses, and -- and the crucial situation we find ourselves in today. then the truck driver shortage during town hall last night you president biden said he would consider spend national guard to help with supply chain may be have national guard driver trucks the white house already walked that back. saying no, no, no we're not considering the national guard taking on truck driving but what of your thoughts in terms of what is needed right now, aside from investment which is you you long temperature theme

you are suggesting. >> again supply chain industry not a immune from challenges at nationals scale talking about, the availability, when services having supply chain, so i think, going forward, with a needs teef had a full-court press in terms of how we are are we attract in labor force one good news i think starting to see more and more people, entering job market, but in terms of the trucking component, that has been a real problematic issue for some years, in terms of getting enough people to -- track to this work supply chain, again, in talking to, bigger in this industry those are being had to make trucking industry more attract to people. >> before you go, quick the last time we spoke, you suggested, that maybe we weren't seeing end until second quarter 2022 i spoke

8:25 am
we know that hunter biden was sharing an account of bank account with his father then-vice president joe biden, while hunter was rolling in dough from oligarchs in china ukraine was he pretty much selling his father's position? and they were both benefiting, monetarily with it? >> well everybody in america knows that the department of justice refusing to investigate or say they even are investigating it, again when pressed by republicans on that question he just goes back to that that little query that hey, you know this is an ongoing investigation, we can't comment, we don't comment on investigations refusing to answer the question i don't know how many times he said that yesterday, throughout the hours long testimony that he had, hiding behind those type of policies, the department of justice has refusing to tell american people the truth most america knows there is something not right going on probably criminal behavior had hunter

♪ ♪ traveling has always been our passion, even with his parkinson's. but then he started seeing things that weren't there and believing things that weren't true. that worried us. during the course of their disease, around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. and these symptoms can get worse over time. nuplazid is the only approved medicine prescribed to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm.
8:58 am
tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. now this is something we want to see. don't wait. ask your healthcare provider about nuplazid.
