6:04 am
i would like to see the crowd he gets compared to what i had for joe biden. maria: mcauliffe bragged by crowd size. pictures and videos appeared to show tiny crowds at mcauliffe rallies. glenn youngkin said he has momentum on his side. they are polling neck and neck going into the home stretch. this is one that is worrying the democrats. republican lawmakers holding attorney general merrick garland's feet to the fire over the troubling you attempts to target parents. tom cotton calling for him to step down. >> this is shameful. this testimony, your directive, your performance is shameful. thank god you are not on the supreme court. you should resign in disgrace as a judge. maria: garland he refused to back down many he maintains his memo did not target parents for

6:06 am
the macro story. we're getting the gdp out. does it feel like the third quarter slowed down considerable hey to you in terms of what we're seeing on the macro story. the atlanta fed took expectations all the way down. we'll get the number at 8:30 a.m. >> thanks for having me this morning. i think the gdp growth slowed quite dramatically. don't know if it will be all the way down to the 0.5 that the atlanta fed has us at but you can see it when you're out and about, things are definitely slower and i think that bodes probably not so good for or not so well for stock prices over the next couple months. maria: got a fed meeting next week, mark, as you know, and we're also expecting president biden's federal reserve nominations over the next couple days. a big debate out there, the progressives want to take down jay powell and put a more progressive in there. do you expect powell to get renominated? and this of course just days
6:07 am
away from the beginning of the taper plan. >> yeah, you know, i think it's really interesting, maria, in the sense that how could you have anybody who is more progressive in terms of who wants to spend and give injections of qe. i think all the talk of day r -- tapering and reduction of bond buying is just that. i think it's talk. i think we'll be in qe literally forever, i think we'll be in low interest rates for a very long time. we have challenges with working age population growth and productivity. and basically the only thing that's keeping us aafloat right now is stimulus, both monetary and fiscal. the fiscal stimulus doesn't look like it will be as people hoped so i think the monetary stimulus has got to be here. he was jerome the hawk when he came in. then he went to jay the dove and now he's kind of just the letter j pushing out super hits of qe everywhere. maria: but wouldn't it even be
6:08 am
more stimulative with someone like a lyle brainerd in there. >> she may be more loose with the purse strings. that's a great point. i think he probably survives here. he's done a good job by the measures of those who put him in there. i think monetary policy is far too stimulative. i think the weakness in the dollar is troubling. in the recent months the yen and the euro, talk about people printing money, the ecb and boj have gone absolutely vertical. so those currencies are falling faster. and you can see it most aacutely in the price of oil and the price of bitcoin. those assets that are stored as value are surging. maria: and you've been so right on bitcoin, for sure. let me get your take on big tech
6:09 am
as well as bitcoin, actually. we've got some big names coming out tonight at the close, amazon and apple reporting their quarterly numbers. how are you feeling about the valuation here versus the profit growth potential? >> again, perfect question. so, look, these are great companies in great industries. the challenge is valuation across all of technology. you've got companies now in the trillion dollar club that are trading at 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 times revenues. forget earnings. so some of these companies out there are really, really over-valued. i won't point any fingers at certain car companies but i look at apple. apple's a great company. but they only have 19% market share he globally. android is far bigger around the world. i think it's pretty acutely over-valued at these levels
6:10 am
given its growth rate, not growing that fast and trading at a big multiple. amazon is interesting, clearly growing still very quickly but if you look at the stock price, it's been kind of dead money all year. so maybe it just surged a little too much in the past year and so i don't expect much fireworks from both of he those, although given lockdowns, people are spending on consumer goods and using the internet a lot. maria: yeah. i'm surprised we haven't heard any supply shortages or disruptions as relates to amazon. we're seeing it everywhere else. mark, real quick before you go, would you put new money to work here at bitcoin? >> oh, yeah. the way to own bitcoin is to buy a little every week, every month. the daily price doesn't matter, maria. what matters is owning a piece of this network. had this is the most powerful,
6:11 am
most secure computing platform the world has ever seen. you want to own a piece of that. you want to get off zero. most people have zero exposure but don't buy it all at once. buy it over time. i would buy it today, i'd buy it tomorrow, i'd buy it next week, buy it next month. put some in your kid's christmas stocking. maria: you were telling us way lower levels a long time ago. you were spot on with that. what a call. thank you for weighing in on all of that. >> thanks, maria. always great to be with you in the morning. thank you. maria: and to you. your morning mover this morning is ford. jumping 10%, you usually don't see this kind of a move in an you automaker like this. ford motor up 9 and two-thirds percent. it's bringing back its dividends, profits declining from a year ago as the chip shortage hurt dealer production. the company is bringing back the
6:12 am
dividend and sending the stock higher, pushing shareholders into the stock once again. $17.01 a share on ford. we're getting started this morning, coming up down to the wire, president biden delays his trip to europe as he loses a cornerstone of his economic agenda, democrats who don't want to overspend america's tax dollars. the problem china, retired general weighing in on general milley's blind sidedness on hyper sonic missiles. insta stars week rolling on, today's entrepreneur uses social media as a tool to get stunning properties sold online. don't miss a moment of it. you're watching "mornings with maria" live on fox business. we'll be right back.

6:16 am
maria: welcome back. president biden delaying takeoff to europe today in order to twist some arms on capitol hill to agree to that nearly $2 trillion spending bill. the decision comes as democrats cut key provisions from the bill, such as paid family leave, medical leave, in order to reach a deal with moderates who do not want to overspend. progressives are still threatening to pull support for a watered down version and they will not agree to an infrastructure package until had they have a solid deal for reconciliation. gianna caldwell and mark tepper are with us this morning. will president biden's presence do anything to bring the democrats closer to a deal today? it's all also ticks. he wants--it's all optics. your thoughts? >> well, i don't think that this president has done much to have much of any success, anything
6:17 am
legislatively, since he began in office as be president. the truth of the matter is, uncle joe as they call him -- i call him uncle fraud because he made a number of allegations as to what he was going to do while he campaigned. he hasn't done it. he's lied multiple times as president. his press secretary continues to lie. his poll numbers are falling. he's losing independents left and right, democrat as well, and we have a man in office who can't govern and put together a coalition. progressives, as they said they would, credit, as they said they would when he was running, they would push him as far to the left as they possibly could. that's what we've been seeing. thank god for senator joe manchin and senator sinema for holding the line on this. i don't know how much success he may actually get but the way things are looking, it's not looking that great for joe biden or the democratic caucus. maria: yeah. the lies are just over-the-top, you're right about that, i
6:18 am
totally you agree. mark, what's your take? we keep hearing comments like we're close, we're going to have this framework, we're going to have this agreement, when you go to the sticking points, they're not close on any of the sticking points. they want to say they're close to make the american people think there's real common conversation and yet there's an incredible amount of division here. >> yeah. and all the issue really relates to the progressives. and it's kind of interesting, because even the moderate democrats are growing sick and tired of all the aoc party's an particulars. and look, as far as joe biden goes, as far as the left, the democrats, their political capital, it's fading right now. and this self-imposed deadline before i go to europe for a climate summit, it has nothing to do with the climate summit. biden's applying the full court press right now because he knows his political capital could be
6:19 am
virtually nonexistent in a week. wait until the off-year elections next week. there's so much focus on who wins, right? in my opinion, it's really not who wins that matters. this is a litmus test for the entire nation. it's really the best crystal ball we have into what happens in the 2022 midterms and it's all about the shift in votes. virginia's a state that biden won by i believe 10 points in 2020. maria: yeah. >> if all of a sudden we have the dems win by 2% or 3%, even if they still win, that's a seismic shift that's going to translate throughout the rest of the country in 2022 and the democrats are going to have even less leverage to get a deal done. maria: yeah. you wonder if virgos the wrong way for the democrats, does that kill future legislative dreams of this administration? it's a great point and it is certainly a debate right now and they are worried about virginia for sure, because glenn youngkin
6:20 am
is doing so well. we'll slip in a short praying. when we come back we're looking at trump's truth social, it is gaining steam, the numbers showing how many people plan to sign up for this new social media platform that president trump is creating. then buzz light year's new voice, the new light year movie's actor swap has many wondering if politics came into play. we'll tell you about it, because it is the hot topic buzz of the morning, next. (sfx: video game vehicle noises, horns beeping,) (engines revving, cars hitting one another.) (sfx: continued vehicle calamity.) just think, he'll be driving for real soon.

6:24 am
canceled from twitter and facebook earlier this year. joining me now is the federalist senior editor. christopher bedford is here. chris, great to see you. tell me about your company, rightforge.com. forge.com you'll b host trump's social platform. >> we're in an interesting time in technology. all this exists. we know how to make social media platforms. for some reasons the companies that dominated the internet, the amazons, googles, apples, twitters, the facebooks, they decided they don't want the business of half of this country, whether you're a christian, conservative, republican, or someone like again gruenwald or elon musk or a doctor that has a problem with different things coming out from fauci, then you're going to be censored. they don't want your business.
6:25 am
rightforge is a bunch of silicon valley guys who got together after parler was deplatformed, after the president was deplatformed and said no more. apparently we need a second internet, a second infrastructure. that means basically the roads and the ground that the internet's built on, when they took down parler they ripped down -- amazon web services ripped down their services, the ground that parler was built on. rightforge has several all over the world and we're trying to get those back online. maria: this is such an enormous opportunity. congratulations to you. i don't agree that it's this idea that they don't want people's business. i think they just want their voices shut down. they don't want to hear an opposing view to the fair of testify that they have decided -- narrative they decided the way the country should be governed and what's truth and not truth. let's face it, they censored the hunter biden laptop story, which
6:26 am
was a real story, a real picture of corruption weeks before the election. they did the same thing on covid origins and the fact that the covid-19 pandemic started after leaking out of a lab, all of the circumstantial evidence pointed there and yet social media decided no, no, we're not going to say that story. but that's why you see people like nba player ennis can tore and you have -- cantor and you have to give him so much credit. he's calling out nike over forced labor in china. look at the tweet, to the owner of nike, how about i book plane tickets for us and we can fly to china together, we can visit the slave labor camps and you can see it with your own eyes. he tagged lebron james and michael jordan, inviting them to join too. he was seen to wear customized
6:27 am
shoes with the words modern day slavery on it and no more excuses written on the sneakers on them. how great is he for calling out what we know to be true, china is a bad actor and the chinese communist party has the uyghurs locked up right now. to call out nike for making speakers there. >> you're exactly -- sneakers there. >> you're right. it shows the evil at the core of a lot of these international companies that are willing on one hand to do business with a country, a godless slave state like china which is an enemy of the united states, undermining our economy, doing so while doing forced labor, slavery camps where there is torture, murder, and execution and they're willing to come back here and say that the president of united states is unable to have a platform or that atlanta should be boycotted because of he election laws. this goes at the heart of they e evil. it's not just nike that is
6:28 am
guilty. there's many corporations and nba stars. it was shameful to see when the nba was shutting down any criticism of china. they're coming to a head on this again. china reacted, banning boston celtics games from being played in china. i hope more team stand up and take this stand. the national basketball association should be an american league that stands for american values. maria: i like the consumers research and educational nonprofit calling out larry fink and blackrock for all of their pushing of esg, telling us what we should invest in. meanwhile, they're knee-deep in china, investing, telling their investors to ramp up their investing in chinese companies by three times, investing in the same companies that are actually helping the ccp to unseat america as the number one super power. they're calling out larry fink, the ceo of blackrock, and its
6:29 am
policies there as well. christopher, it's good to see you this morning. thanks so much. >> thank you. maria: christopher bedford joining us there. we'll be watching. coming up, blind sided by beijing, general milley calling china's hyper sonic test its put sputnik moment. we'll tog about that. -- we'll talk aboutthat stay wi. deposit, plan and pay with easy tools from chase. simplicity feels good. chase. make more of what's yours. ♪ ♪

maria: welcome back. good thursday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it. is thursday, october 28. take a look at markets this half hour where earnings are coming out fast and furious. futures indicating a gain at the start of trading, dow up 46, s&p 500 up 9 and a quarter and the nasdaq higher by 64 and-a-half. we just got better than expected numbers from merck and we are standing by for first read of third quarter gdp that is out in two hours' time. all three major indices finished at session lows yesterday as
6:33 am
growth worries continue to heighten and worry investors ahead of the federal reserve beginning a tapering program. dow industrials were down 266 points yesterday. nasdaq was up by just a fraction, well off of the highs of the day and the s&p 500 finished down 23. late day selloff as investors juggled upbeat earnings with inflation and growth concerns. european markets this morning are lower, we've got the european central bank meeting today and we will hear from christine lagarde, president of the ecb, at about 8:30, 8:45 on stimulus there. ft 100 down 12, cac in paris is up 30, the dax is lower with the the ft down 23 on the dax. in asia, red across the board, china was the worst performer. shanghai was down 1 and a quarter percent overnight. investigators are saying no one is off the hook yet in the deadly movie set shooting involving actor alec baldwin. cheryl casone with the details now on this developing story.
6:34 am
cheryl. cheryl: that is right, maria. good morning. the sheriff revealing alec baldwin fired a live round during a he rehearsal of the film, rust, which killed the cinematographer. the assistant director admitted to making mistakes. he should have checked for more rounds and he didn't. after the shooting, hall said there were five rounds in the gun, at least four of which had dummy casings. the sheriff said they are looking into reports the crew used the guns for target practice in their off time. well, more than 2,000 immigrants continue to make their way towards the southern border. the caravan pushing past police in mexico after delays in getting asylum papers in southern mexico. as of september, mexico received

more than 90,000 asylum applications. mean while in the u.s., president biden expanding the list of places i.c.e. officers cannot make arrests. the list now includes churches, playgrounds, rec centers, bus stops, social service buildings and schools, among others. well, starbucks baristas are going to get a raise, they will hike the minimum wage at least twice next year. in addition to raising pay, starbucks will also offer $200 referral bonuses and add some in-house recruiters across all u.s. markets. this as restaurants are struggling to find workers. starbucks is fractionally higher in the premarket. and finally this. the world series is now even at one game you apiece. the astros taking advantage of a big second inning to tie the series and win the game, 7-2. astros star hit his 22nd post
6:36 am
season home run. the series is set to resume friday night in atlanta, maria. 8:09 eastern time for game free. atlanta had the all-star game taken away from them. now they have the world series there. interesting take on this whole thing. maria: right. interesting. cheryl, thank you so much. we just got caterpillar which was better than expected. stock is up about 1 and-a-half percent. the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general mark milley, calling china's test of hyper sonic missiles very close to a sputnik moment, referring to the launch of the russian satellite in the 1950s. white house press secretary jen psaki reacting to the comments yesterday. >> i've seen of course general milley's comments. what he was conveying was the concern we all have is about china's modernization efforts, increasing tensions in the reason and we continue to have concerns about that i think that was reflected in his comments.
6:37 am
maria: meanwhile, taiwan's president has confirmed a small number of u.s. troops are in taiwan on the island training taiwanese troops saying the threat from beijing is increasing every day. joining me now is retired general, general arnold punero. thank you very much for being here. we so appreciate you and your service to this great country. thank you, sir. >> maria, privileged to be with you this morning. maria: you have written a book, you're the author of the book, the ever-shrinking fighting force. general, i want to ask you about what's happening in terms of the u.s. versus china. you heard what general mark milley said. how do you see this threat from the ccp which makes no secret of the fact that it wants to undermine and replace the united states as the number one super superpower. >> maria, bull's-eye. we should be more than concerned
6:38 am
about the recent development in china with their demonstration of the ability to put a hyper sonic glide missile potentially with a nuclear warhead. it's clearly a game-changer many it's worse than a sputnik moment. sputnik was a benign satellite that demonstrated limited technical ability by the then soviet union. china is on the march, militarily, economically, diplomatically and even scarier techno logically. they're ahead of us in terms of hyper sonic missiles and technologies that are not just important to our military, but important for our economy and our competitive position in the world. quantum, artificial intelligence, i could tick off seven or eight. of them.this development is a ge changer. it could put at risk a lot of investment we made in our own infrastructure, turn those into museum pieces. it's a game changer because it crosses the rubicon of
6:39 am
weaponizing space. trillions of dollars of the u.s. economy depends on our access to space. this is worse than a sputnik moment. there was a book written about the japanese surprise attack at pearl harbor called at dawn we flip and it pointed out all the signs we should have picked up on. you have pointed out, others have pointed out, china is very bold and accurate about what they're saying they're going to do and they're doing it. they quadrupled their military and things like that. we should be very concerned. maria: yeah. well, i have been very concerned for several years now. i'm happy to see now more in the media recognizing this incredible threat. it's unfortunate that the buy ten administration is not recognizing it or certainly not showing that it recognizes it. president biden continues to call china a competitor. it's not a competitor. it's an adversary. we all know that. and even the fact that it's gotten as strong as it has
6:40 am
gotten with its navy being larger than the u.s. navy, much of it is coming to china from theft. they've been stealing our secrets now for decades. and frankly, it's quite rich to see mark milley call this a sputnik moment when it was him who actually called had his counterpart in china and said if anything happens, we'll give you the heads-up first. i mean, you know, why is he calling his counterpart in china and giving them a heads-up on anything the u.s. is doing knowing that they are beating us already and they're about to invade taiwan, if you believe many experts. do you expect an invasion sooner rather than later, sir? >> maria, i think to answer both of your excellent points, number one, i think we have to consider china as an adversary. we also can't play kissy face with countries like china a because of what they said they want to do which is take over the western democracy and be the
6:41 am
dominant power in the world. a lot of administrations talked about the pivot of the pacific. we talk a good game. our structure in the pacific of the u.s. military is roughly the same as it was in the year 2000. and china as you said, their navy is larger than ours, they quadrupled their land based ability on taiwan. i think it's a positive development that we're doing training with taiwan. i think we need to make a clear statement that if china moves on taiwan, we're going to defend them. let's get around the ambiguity because it sends a signal to the rest of the world. china needs to understand hyper sonic missiles, we're going to match them, we're going to deter them. we need to do more. we should do more training with taiwan. we should train in the air and the sea. we should send a signal that we're there for them. maria: i would love to see them. as you know, general, we're only
6:42 am
getting ambiguity from this white house. jen psaki refused to actually say that the u.s. would back taiwan in such a situation. she said policy hasn't changed and that policy as you correctly note is just that the u.s. would arm taiwan, not necessarily protect it from an invasion. but i don't understand why it's been so difficult for this administration to come up with some serious policy against china being this bad actor. we just roll over when it comes to huawei. we just sent the cfo back to china, she was under house arrest in canada and then of course there's all these policy mistakes in afghanistan. what's your take here? because senior pentagon officials are saying that the islamic state in afghanistan could have the capability to attack the united states in six months and is intending to do so. all that as al-qaida could potentially have similar capabilities in one to two years, general. we know this week the taliban met with the ccp. so you've got the ccp, china
6:43 am
backing the taliban. they want those rare earth minerals in afghanistan. and you've got, you know, the botched withdrawal where americans are still there in afghanistan. >> maria, we've learned the hard way that these terrorist organizations constitute themselves and rebuilt their capabilities faster than we predicted. they're going to build their capability faster than they're predicting right now. number two, the over-the-horizon capability is no substitute for boots on the ground. we should have covid actions going on in pakistan. pakistan is supporting the taliban. tear going to support the rebuild-up of the terrorist organizations even as they claim they want to be helpful to the united states. we should be very worried about this and do what we need to do to basically preempt any basic
6:44 am
terrorist activity against our country. but we should not be looking at this through rose colored glasses anymore. maria: you would think so, right, general? unfortunately, there's not a dime of an increase in defense spending in biden's budget. they just had a hearing yesterday and the democrats had all of the intelligence executives, the officials in to testify in a public hearing and the democrats asked them about diversity. if not for the republicans, they wouldn't even have talked about china. general, it's good to see you. we so appreciate your time and please know that we will keep a spotlight on all of this, sir. thank you for your service to this great country. we'll be right back with the insta stars week rolling on. today's entrepreneur wants to sell you a stunning property all with a click of a button, next.

analyst angela zino. good to see you. thank you very much for being here. tell us what you want to take away, what you're going to be focused on mostly when apple reports tonight. >> thank you for having me. so as far as the quarter is concerned we do expect a beat overall and i think the street is kind of leaning there as well. the key is going to be what the guidance is going to look like for the december quarter ass is usually the case. our view here is, you know, we're looking for some decent gains on the iphone side of things but of course the supply constraints will be center stage here. apple has done a great job here thus far amid kind of a post-pandemic world to kind of navigate through that storm but it could catch up to them here in the december quarter, given the demand levels that we're seeing for the iphone. so i think that's going to be key. the other side of things i'd say is we continue to have a buy because of the wearables and services business. we think the growth there continues to be north of 20% and
6:50 am
that should be enough to keep investors out there happy. maria: what's the story on getting your hands on the apple iphone 12 or 13 right now? i mean, the chip crunch, the supply chain crisis has become evident in many of the week's earnings reports, cutting into ford and general motors profits. samsung warned it cannot predict financial results for 2022 given me uncertainties. have people been able to get their hands on these phones or are there big delays? >> i mean, the lead times are definitely extending here. at least at the higher price devices, as one would expect. those have in recent years been the more popular devices, specifically in areas like china and the u.s. so as far as some of the higher price devices are concerned, much more difficult to get your hands on them. you're waiting several weeks, depending on the configuration you're looking at to get that device. so. maria: that's what i figured.
6:51 am
i've got your report in my hands right here. i can't believe the cash position, you highlight apple's cash position, net cash, $72 billion. wow. what are they going to do with that money? >> continue to buy back shares in our view. this isn't a company that's going to spend on m&a. their biggest acquisition continues to be that of beats years ago at $3 billion. so we think they continue to buy back 15 to $20 billion on average on a quarterly basis on their shares until they get to the that net cash neutral position. maria: all right. we'll be watching the numbers and we appreciate you joining me this morning. thank you. stock up half a percent right now. going to slip in a short break, then buzz light year's new voice, the new actor swaps has many wondering if politics came into play. it's the hot topic buzz of the morning and it's next.

6:56 am
that says get off your couch and get a job. you would get canceled immediately. in this situation, i don't think this one is politically motivated. i guess chris evans is voicing the actual buzz lightyear, like the real life person that the toy that tim allen voiced was actually based off of. so i guess it would be kind of weird if the real person and the toy had the same exact voice. so, you know, at that point people would wonder how the human version got stuck inside a toy. i see the logic. i don't think this one is political. maria: yeah. it's too bad we even have to question that gianno. >> well, i don't know if it's not political. i grew up watching toy story and as a kid can i watched it multiple times over and over and was we see now in hollywood especially when it comes to children's shows, they put up lgbt couples, talk about transgender issues when it comes to kids' cartoons but there's no ability to talk about politics or be a conservative which is
6:57 am
really interesting to me. it's very disappointing. but that's what we've been seeing from hollywood. so it's not surprising. maria: yeah. well, that's the issue and when you see something like this, you know how people get canceled as you say, mark, if they wear make america great hat, forget it. we'll take a break. when we come back, there is a special dedication at fox news to rupert murdoch. we introduce you to studio m, honoring the fox news founder. it all starts next hour.

7:05 am
close. what are you looking at in terms of the impact on stocks and your investing? >> yeah, maria, so obviously growth is slowing, right, we are seeing that with the potential gdp read and i'm a bit concerned about the health of the market in response to this. if you think about it, operating margins have been strong. they've continued to go up even though companies are seeing rise in cost and that's because sales growth has been able to outface all of the cost increases, but with gdp slowing and supply chain issues affects nearly every single company i'd expect sales growth to start to slow so at some point operating margins are going to contract and that's historically when you see selloff. the best metrics is the next 12-month operating and when you see come down that's when you see pullbacks. companies are coming in much
7:06 am
better than expected. i think we are seeing 36% year over year growth. we are at halfway point but the goings from tech companies is -- look at snapchat from maybe a week ago, look at twitter. the narrative around tech companies is one no one would expect this. most investors believe that the tech companies will be insulated from supply chain issues but their customers who are impacted by supply chain issues are scaling back their ad spend. so that's how it's impacting the tech companies. so even though engagement remains high with a lot of the tech companies, social media companies, their customers are tightening up the pursestrings again. that's something that we have to keep an eye on as well. maria: yeah, all great points. ali, let's talk about oil, the top story in the journal today is how activist investors are trying to get royal dutch shell oil to not pursue like exxon
7:07 am
mobile. oil in the spotlight today. oil executives facing a hearing this morning. big stake in shell worth more than $500 million and now urging the oil giant to separate into two companies. look at where the oil shell down is 4%. oil plunging to two-week low. oil felt pretty expensive but isn't it extraordinary to see what's going on with oil companies, ali, last week you had exxon mobile talking about canceling the projects that it's bread and butter because of pressure from activist investors so pretty much not pursue their business, your reaction to all of that? >> it's definitely the story of the week post-pandemic and a lot of tail winds, maria. if you think about it, oil
7:08 am
demands as we come out of this pandemic and as everything that mark just talked about in terms of demand for services and good picking is up 5% from pre-pandemic levels. supply hasn't caught up. so when you think about the tampering growth in the country, it's oil in terms of opening and economic activity and it's sort of very similar akin to the new oil or semiconductors and both of those are limiting output. now the same with oil that you just mentioned, if you have the long-term secular issues which are being pointed out, the u.s. is building inventories but the rest of the world is in a supply glut, demand glut and really supply constraint. i expect that you continue to see volatility not only in the price of oil but in the supply, consumption, there's no reason it won't continue to go up as we get more airplanes, as we get more airlines. my husband is australian,
7:09 am
australia is about to open up. they are trying to get pilots and planes back on so the oil demand is only going to go north and they are trying to figure out how to get more oil out there. and the interesting issue that we have from a secular perspective and environmental perspective, we have gone so far, the pendulum has flown so hard the other way, what are we going to do now between now and energy carbon neutral dates which are a lot in the future which is why i would buy oil. maria: we will see what happens at the meetings. so they'll be on the hot seat ceo's that are testifying today. gate point, ali, mitch, the chip
7:10 am
crunch that we have to hit on. supply issues cutting into general motors, ford, we will talk about this crisis even a year from today, tell me how you see this playing out? mitch: literally the way i look at supply chain it's literally a chain and chips are one of the stories. but if you think about it, we have a truck driver shortage, we have a labor shortage for assembly. we have the chip and chasse child supportage and containers in different parts of the world. i don't see this getting fixed any time soon. i don't think the administration has their eye on the ball. organized labor has made this very, very complicated and it's going to take a long time to sort it out. the other thing is all of the companies around the world with chip manufacturers specifically have operated just in time inventory model for so long that when you shut down a plant for 6 weeks or six months, some place getting back up and filling the
7:11 am
parts is very difficult and pivoting back to cars. i remember you and i talking about this year ago when we talked about border adjustment tax back and forth around the world are parts that go into cars so even a supplier that has to delivery seats, there are 11 different components in car seats and if you can't get the foam, you can't have a car because you can't get the seats, i don't see this being solved any time soon and it's going to take a lot of cooperation between the private sector and the public sector and labor unions in the country to sort it all out. maria: yeah, big enough issue to really put a crimp in economic growth, certainly when you look at what's going on with the autos. great conversation, ali mccartney and mitch roschelle. mark tepper, you're sticking around. thank you so much for the word on wall street. quick break. capitol biden heads to the hill where he's expected to talk about a reconciliation framework.

participants at school board meetings to domestic terrorists, watch. >> that letter and those reports. >> the basis -- >> no, senator, that's wrong. >> the testimony, your directive, your pour formance is shameful. thank god you are not on the supreme court. >> it is wrong and unprecedented to my knowledge in the history of the country and i call on you to resign. maria: wow, garland pushed back and maintains that the memo did not target participants for speaking out against mask mandates and critical race theory in schools, but gianno, the letter reflected what the national school board said and the school board had to apologize for calling parents domestic terrorists? >> those who come across the southern border who have been flagged as terrorists are okay and are welcome to this country.
7:17 am
this is reprehencive. this is absolutely reprehensible. to elevate to doj it is sticking the fbi onto parents. this is something that every democrat, democrat parent, should all be concerned about. we believe the freedom of speech and at least that's what our country used to believe in. why is it that you cannot speak up and talk about the curriculum. why can't you talk about mask mandates, why can't you mention these issues, instead we have a government that's being ran like communist who are saying, hey, this is what you can and cannot do, we are eliminating the constitution and we are going to do what we say not what we do basically and that's the post that democrats have taken here. maria: that's absolutely right. the vaccine mandates arguably unconstitutional, you have the surveillance of bank accounts
7:18 am
that they wanted to do until that got killed because of the fighting over the spending bill. i mean, mark, look, you have kids. of course, you want to know what they're learning in school and yet he sticks the fbi on them. mark: that's absurd. so gianno's capitol you're a terrorist and concerned of what your kids are learning, you're a terrorist but if you're lighting cars on fire, you're not a terrorist. what did nancy pelosi say, people are going to do what they are going to do. they got a free pass. parents should have a say in what their children are learning. they should be able to voice their opinion and be able to disagree. maria, you mentioned my children, i can tell you my daughter who is in sixth grade she was handed a book to read over the summer. i wish i knew the name of it. i don't have it right now. maybe i will get it by the end
7:19 am
of the show. i will shoot my wife a text. a back of essays, essays written by school-aged children and when took a look at it there was a chapter on why critical race theory is good and why prostitution should be legalized. it was absurd all of the different chapters and all of the different essays that were in the book, they were all written by radical left individuals. yes, they were children who wrote them but obviously they had influence from their parents i would assume and we went and we battled with the school board over this book. i'm not a terrorist but i want to make sure that if politics are being taught to my children that i have a say in what my children are learning. maria: it's just unbelievable. ted cruz brought up what dagen mcdowell said on the program the conflicts of interest because his son-in-law is selling studies about critical race theory and meanwhile the kids in china right now they are being told by the ccp they need to

7:24 am
making any arrests, so this list now includes places like churches, playgrounds, schools and protests. migrants can go there and they have no worry about getting arrested for illegally breaching our border. joining me right now texas congressman member of house foreign affairs homeland security august flugger. thank you very much for, what should we know about the caravan on the way? congressman: well, maria, good to see you as well. on september 18th, i went to del rio, i was under the bridge the day they had 18,000 migrant and the one thing they told me, the cbp officers, the border patrol officers, if you this this is bad just wait and here we are and, again, one of those things where what is the administration doing? they are leading us back into the crisis again and even worse crisis, an even worse situation where there are literally thousands of migrants who are coming up, many reporters have been covering this. at what point in time does the administration say enough is
7:25 am
enough around apparently they ad apparently they are doing this themselves. maria: it's been fox news and fox business, this program. i went to the border three times. there are others at this network bill is doing an incredible job, sarah carter has done a great job so we are trying to put a spotlight on this situation because we recognize 1.7 million people were apprehended at the border year to date, that's 2021. we took a helicopter ride to see what is going on. that does not include the got-aways, where do you believe the people that don't want to get apprehended and luring american teenagers to be their getaway cars and they are getting away with it, i'm told the number is hundreds of thousands year to date. >> we think it's 400 plus
7:26 am
thousand. that's 2.1 million and what border patrol agents have told me and other members of congress that have gone down there and taken the time to understand the problem is that they are not going through ports of entry anymore. the people that are bad, trafficking drugs and trafficking humans, the fentanyl and all of that they are moving toward the interior. we continue to ask the administration to release the number of known or suspected terrorists. kst's is what they call them. they refuse to do so. maria: unbelievable. >> it is unbelievable. the outgoing border patrol chief rodney scott has come in, kst's have come in record numbers and why would the administration not be forthright with the american public. this is a national security issue. maria: i just don't understand why they refuse to acknowledge what's taking place, it is a clear crisis. we've also got a crisis when it relates to the economy on our hands with oil prices where they are. you're introducing a resolution condemning a natural gas tax. the democrats are considering to
7:27 am
put in this reconciliation bill, what can you tell us about that and where are we on this reconciliation bill at this point? >> well, we are hearing president biden is coming to the capitol this morning to lobby for the bill, infrastructure bill, they are all tied together but i think, you know, what people are realizing what we are waking up to is for him to claim that nobody under $400,000 a year is going to be taxed is completely bogus. this natural gas tax, it's a tax on the american family. up to $240 per year on each family and increased energy cost, increased gas cost, it's insane to say that we will not be affected. we are feeling it at the pump and americans will continue to feel it and president biden is doing things that are going to cost us millions of dollars each year and every family is going to pay for this. maria: well, it's outrageous that there's not a cent in there for homeland security and there's not a cent in there for defense increase spending and i
7:28 am
find that really offensive given the fact that our advisories are rising as significantly as they are like china and now iran as well. congressman, good to see you, we so appreciate your time and your work on this and we will check back in, august ppluger. thank you, sir. regulating crypto currencies, securities and exchange commission calling the sector the wild west. my new guest says the new rules will actually benefit the industry. that's next. squid game brought to life. check this out. the halloween display that's scarier than a haunted house. we will take you there, back in a moment.

attracting users. a new poll shows more than 60% of registered republicans say they plan to use true social. trump media technology plans to launch an app to invite guests next month and will go nationwide at some point next year. and then there's this. manchester, new jersey, maria, a teenager decided to make this after viral squid game. shows deadly red light, green light game and has display that shows creepy robotic girl and guards in the windows and audio gunshots when you walk by. the family is known for elaborate holiday light shows but they put this one together in just two weeks after they watched the show on netflix, total cost, $20,000. by the way, maria, the teen's tiktok account went viral. he's earning 10 grand in sponsorship money as of now.
7:35 am
i mean, you are making money and he's got a really creepy scary light show in his yard. i love halloween, but -- maria: this whole show creeps me out. i haven't seen it yet. i don't know if you have. cheryl: i'm with lea carter, no, just no thank you, not doing it. [laughter] maria: all right. we are wanting to zero in now on coining the market. securities and exchange commission working toward regulator crypto currency and signaling that it will only allow unledged funds -- joining me right now is ceo of voyager digital, cofounder as well, steve, great to see you, thanks very much. i wondered what you thought about the sec saying, yes, bitcoin funds are fun, etf's as
7:36 am
well, handful of etf's out there offering bitcoin but not leveraging bitcoin etf's, what are your thoughts? >> thank you for having me again. i appreciate being here. lack, i think it's a natural progression of regulation. we are going to go step by stem on this, we are not -- step on this and we are not going to go aggressive and bringing regulation to the industry and thoughtful regulation as that comes and that's the next step that we come in etf's, we will do this on a step by step basis. maria: steve, i want to ask you in a minute with partnership with the dallas mavericks which sounds so excited but first walk us through your vision. how do you see the digital economy moving, how is this going to evolve in terms of how people use and spend and transact? >> yeah, i mean, we are in the early stages still and i think adoption is starting to happen. i still say to use basketball analogy, we are still in the
7:37 am
first half of the first quarter of the adoption and usage of crypto currency. we have seen a lot in the nft space but i'm starting to see projects for title, title movement of cars, title insurance on houses, we are seeing that adoption starting to come. i think as we start to see that you are going to see more adoption of the crypto currencies and the real use behind the block chain and crypto currencies, that's what gets us really excited about some of those projects that we actually see coming down the pipes pretty quickly actually. maria: it sounds like it's an incredible growth story certainly for voyager and other ties to network of digital currency and digital transactions. go ahead, mark. mark: >> hey, steve. you know with all the talk about biden's beefed up irs and giving big brother a chance to scourer through and look through our bank accounts, don't you think that's bullish for crypto?
7:38 am
i would imagine people who are concerned about privacy would begin transacting more and more often in crypto rather than u.s. dollars, what's your take on that? >> well, look, i think crypto isn't as cryptic as people make it seem, you know, companies like ours are doing know your customer reporting, aml reporting and look, there's taxation of crypto currency as well and we see that possibly in the infrastructure bill that there's going to be enhanced taxation. i think it's the usage of crypto that actually really matters and what's driving is increased adoption in crypto and i think that the taxation side, people will continue to trade and invest in the projects because also what is antiquated financial service's system at the forefront of all of this in the way we trade security. there's a lot of opportunity for crypto currency in the crypto sector. that's where you will see more adoption coming in and a lot more things expedited in this
7:39 am
manner. maria: yeah, i wonder if you have a thought on which crypto is going to be the biggest mover. i put a poll out on my twitter account yesterday, which crypto will be the biggest mover within the next year and why. you know, when i started looking into it, i didn't realize how many crypto currencies there were, steve. i'm getting a lot of response on this poll that i tweeted yesterday but talk to us about your big announcement, your thoughts on which crypto is going to be the biggest mover and tell us about the big new partnership you've got with the dallas mavericks. voyager enters 5-year exclusive deal to become the team's first currency brokerage and international partner and mark cuban says crypto and applications are changing how finance are done? >> mark and i are really aligned. we are excited about the 5-year integrated partnership because we see the world the same. we see the world the adoption and it's changing as i mentioned
7:40 am
changing the way things are happening and partnering with mark and the mavs, they are really progressive in the way they look at crypto. they were one of the first teams to accept crypto as payments and we will be in there and use payment system to actually accept payments for mavs years ticket on a go forward basis. additionally, the key partnership for us on this partnership is education. like mark and i want to be out there. the mavs want to be out there educating people on crypto. people are starting to understand it but, you know, in dallas there's a big hub, texas is a big hub for crypto and crypto innovation and you want to be at the forefront of that, educate people as to why this matters and that's why we felt this partnership was so important to us because they understand crypto, the mavs totally understand crypto and they've been in the space for a while. maria: i love that. we need to education because these names of new cryptos,
7:41 am
like, for example, the coin is on the rise, it's up 40% yesterday. it's doubled in value in the last week, so how do we know which coin it's already overtaken doige coin. >> that's exactly why we need education. at federal press conference yesterday we want people to come in and be wise about how much they spend and how much they invest and learn more about the coins but it's incumbent upon us to teach about doge, bitcoin and smart contracts. it's important for us to do that and that's why we are in this partnership because you're right, people don't know why sheiba exists and how it's used and there's a lot of things coming on sheiba including payments, payments are changing and crypto is at the forefront of that. maria: i totally agree.
7:42 am
steve, great to see you. thanks very much. you can check out what bitcoin and the others are doing right on our ticker. we have put crypto currency on our ticker right along with dallas as well right here on fox business. steve, come back soon, great to catch up. >> thanks for having me. maria: all right, steve erlich from voyager. you are behind on christmas shopping and it's next in retail roundup and social media entrepreneurs joining us every day. watch this. >> i'm brandon, cofounder of current real estate advisers. we are in commercial real estate, oldest and equated industries in the world. we use instagram and social media in order to become the most successful and i can't wait to share with you how we do it. maria: hear more of brandon's story and what sets his company apart. you're watching mornings with maria live on fox business.

7:47 am
out tomorrow, we were just talking about how much money people have in their pockets and the fact that they have been saving during the pandemic and now we have new financial worries, why? >> new financial worries, maria, because the national retail federation is protecting november, december holiday spending of about 850 billion. that said from the earlier segment on natural gas which is great consumers may have to cut spending by 80 to $101 billion because of higher energy, gas and inflated prices in 12 out of 12 monthly expenditure areas. maria: unbelievable. so now we've got the inflation worry, the supply chain worry, retailers are telling consumers to start holiday shopping now. we talked about this the other day. i'm not in the mood to go christmas shopping right now. where are we going to do, go to stores around christmas and see that stores have run out of items because of the supply chain, staffing shortages, inventory challenges, what do
7:48 am
you think it's going to look like in the next month and a half? >> maria, while consumer confidence is going through a regression and confidence is getting crushed, store shelves are empty to your important point and consumers really need to complete his or her holiday spending some time between halloween this weekend and veterans day in a week and a half otherwise there won't be a train wreck under the christmas tree in terms of empty stockings and lack of presents and cards with promises to buy next year because you couldn't buy this year. maria: well, how come we are not seeing the issues at amazon? burt, look, amazon reports earnings after the close tonight and it seems like amazon is doing fine and yet everybody -- we are hearing issues for everybody else with the 160 ships in the pacific right now unable to drop products off. >> maria, amazon is in the perfect situation about two-thirds of their retail sales
7:49 am
are from third parties and as you reported well, amazon has bought its own ships and has an extensive line of inventory so amazon is going to be one of the retailwinders during the holidays but there are others like ebay reported on fox business last night after the market that ebay total sales declined quarter over quarter by about 10% in total number of customers declined about 5%. so consumers are really , iocousncerco angngngur p,asess reportedported itr s najourlurlur arerere passi png n rc hapuslt aher. owa:, m,um j in. h b,t, my m mue qnstio u, you can can an t coul y year yea for for chri stmas i h tado haduy m s son s 5 o ebaybaecseec couldn't nd them the ond i start s looking againgain this year to a

ps5 for another family member d onced iadadad g ebay aay, t,t's two t t consecutive holiday shopping seasons where goods are hard to come by. when does the madness finally end? >> mark, great points and then also it's going to be exacerbated that you and i both grew up in the blizzard belts of the great lakes region so with that weather forecast and winter weather and more blizzards before the holidays that will show shipments even more but on your point on buying on e-mail, it's not going to stop until sony and microsoft and everyone else start building in the continental united states and stops outsourcing what we buy through wal-mart nonconsumable through the people's republic of china. we have to onshore. maria: wow. so far we are seeing hits to
7:51 am
earnings as a result of this but we spoke with the head of the port in long beach who said don't expect these issues to stop or go away until at least the second half of the year and we have other predictions that it continues throughout 2022. so that's an impact that will be felt on the economy, bitter, we will be watching, we have the gdp coming out soon. do you think this hurts economic growth, burt, real quick. >> your important work, maria, i do a lot of probono job and the ports are exhausted and they can't produce and ship as much. the answer is make it in america, power to prosper. maria: burt, great to see you, thank you so much. burt flickinger on retail. special new addition to fox news. we are taking you inside the brand-new studio m honoring our founder rupert murdoch. stay with us.

take away from third quarter reporting season, victoria? >> you know maria i think so far the market is pretty pleased with what we are seeing on earnings expectations, when we -- where we stand versus previous two quarters the anticipation there would be much larger drop in the earnings, we haven't seen that very much a small drop but not very much, because really strong when you listen to what ceos are saying they are saying consumer 2k3457bd there is yes supply chain issues talking earlier about how some ceos sigh second half next year or all the way through 2022 could be an issue the consumer demand there, i think strong, we have earnings come out strong, that is a good read on consumer tat pillar had good numbers, we get apple, amazon today the markets focusing, on that right now. i -- i mean this week alone is about a third of the s&p that is reporting, so lots of

8:09 am
a bit do they change the taper plan given the fact that we are seeing o growth expectations come down? and worries? move? >>. >> a i don't, i think we might see a opposite in the coming months, and that is because when we look what is happening globally you were talking atlanta fed a quarter percent or so for gdp that number will come out in a little bit. but i think what people maybe doing is underestimating the growth poengs going forward after in a delta variant through a monkey wrench in third quarter a strong balance sheet looking good, and o globally growth should come back as well, then i think we are going to be pretty good and that means fed may go quicker than people anticipate look at futures maria there is a 70% probability right now of the first right hike in july i don't think anyone anticipated
