will save the country from this monstrosity. maria: it looks dead on arrival in the senate. >> exactly. at the end of the day if the moderates on the house don't get the moderates in the senate, i truly believe will stop it and it is hopefully ends there. maria: have a great weekend. at 8:00 pm eastern, "varney and company" begins now. stuart: good morning. kevin mccarthy, the republican leader in the house, made a valiant effort to stall the build back better plan, successfully delay the vote the cancer the way forever. members going through procedural motions leading to a full vote later today. that is the theory. we get into what is in this
9:01 am
plan and its actual costs. it is not what the democrats are telling you. wall street journal calls it the most dishonest spending bill in america's history. another big story. austria has declared a lockdown for the country and all austrians must be vaccinated by february. the first national mandate in a european country. germany has stepped up restrictions. where else will mandate and lockdowns expand? that is the major concern today. these two stories had a financial impact. look at the selloff and cryptos, there's a pastor regulation in the build back better plan. 56,000 earlier, 57-6, 4200 for ethereum. the stock market took a hit when austria announced direct connection on covid. and lockdowns and mandates spread, it is effective worldwide.
9:02 am
a couple hundred points at "the opening bell". and the downside. the nasdaq shows a gain of 81 points. the nasdaq doing will because the 10 year treasury yield is down to one.35%. a new fox poll shows the build back better plan is not popular with voters. 46% oppose, 44% in favor. it shows parents oppose vaccinating children 51% to 43%. massive spending, transformation of society, forced vaccination, we will cover it all on november 19th, 2021. "varney and company" is about to begin.
9:03 am
stuart: the house reconvened at 8:00, after delaying the spending bill vote. >> kevin mccarthy gave a passionate and record - within hours in 32 minutes. looks like they have the votes to pass it. then the measure goes to the senate then kicked back to the house. the final version, likely won't get that until the new year. stuart: what did the bean counters say this costs? >> $357 billion added to the deficit over ten years while bringing in $207 billion meaning the deficit is $160 billion.
9:04 am
if the temporary programs, the real cost is $5 million in the cbo is not the only person saying that. if you take the childcare allow once they have it for one year. will they take that away? stuart: 10 years, the real cost of that allowance, $1.3 trillion. it is absolute trickery. the bills back better plan, the most dishonest spending bill in american history. let's go through this again. full well they will never be repealed and therefore knowing full well that the real cost is astronomical. i'm not buying it and i hope joe manchin doesn't buy it.
9:05 am
what do you say? >> what a cynic you are. the idea using government would bait and switch us, tell us it is only going to be a year-long program and people love this so much, the only way the federal government operates. states hate this. it means the feds will start a program and if the state is required to pick it up everybody blames the governors. what it really is, the wall street journal is right, this is the most dishonest spending bill because it's not about spending. it is about realigning the economy from private sector to big government. more things will be controlled by big government. if you love government and trust government and make better decisions with their money, you can ever make for yourself, this is your bill, you want to get on the phone, ask your congressman and senators who write but if you have some degree of concern
9:06 am
about how the federal government, if you don't want to see a bunch more of your money go to high tax states like in the northeast you better oppose this with all you've got. let's go back to wearing masks that say stop listing and we are wearing masks not for covid but because this bill stinks up america in the only way we can stomach it is to wear a mask over our face. stuart: the only way around it is to rely on senator manchin and kristen sinema to take the bad stuff out some way or other. we rely on those two senators. >> i'm praying for their safety. hope they have a wonderful thanksgiving. hope they enjoy their time and when they get back to places like arizona and west virginia, they are surrounded by seen people, not the crazy people.
9:07 am
go do the right thing. and maybe they will save the country. stuart: senator manchin, had a reporter that affect. what happens when you get to the senate? you and i are in agreement about the dreadful build back better plan. we've got fox poll just out examining president biden's performance, key take aways. >> reporter: 44% of the job he's doing in office down 10 percentage points from 5 months ago. that is the overall rating, 44% approval. he doesn't do much better on the issues. 54% say he is focused on the wrong issue. winning four say legislation like build back better else there families and 53% say the president's age is impacting his performance.
9:08 am
he turns 79 and tomorrow. stuart: a difficult thing to talk about, age. >> reporter: age and performance, he's 10 months in and we are less then a year from the midterms, not good for the president or the party. stuart: thanks very much. a great corporate story. apple getting into electric vehicles. they want to launch their self driving electric vehicle by 2025. david nicholas follows apple. do you think this is good long-term for apple stock? >> it is. secretive projects, fully autonomous electric vehicle by 2025 which is pretty ambitious but if they do it is great for the stock, disastrous for other electric automakers because apple has done not by building hype around their products. a huge confess in the consumer
9:09 am
market, apple, facebook, microsoft, you can't that against these companies, even when their stock, has the capital to innovate. there is no steering wheel. one thing going 5 miles an hour. when you go 80 miles down the road with no steering wheel i am not sure i feel like that but you try first and give the swing. stuart: is the setting up apple versus tesla competition? >> no question. this is the biggest competition for tesla, and apple. this is the first auto company that could actually become petition to tesla. they build trucks. lucid is for the luxury market. apple may be the first car brand that can compete in all sectors, small and midsize and trucks against the company like this. stuart: ruby and is behaving like a meme stock.
9:10 am
is a meme stock? >> ipos can be volatile at the start but retail investors lost a lot of money. the 150 range. it is not a meme stock but so much excitement around this. i love the excitement that i am a numbers guy and when i look under the hood, they will deliver 25,000 cars compared to gm or forward that will deliver 3 million cars. they give 6 million production capacity. i don't know how they compete with the gm report but they could compete in the commercial market. if ribian can get into a commercial space delivery vehicle i think they will do well. they will not be able to compete in the resale market. stuart: good to see you.
9:11 am
we will see you next week. we are going down for the dow industrials. nice gain for the nasdaq. enjoy read would like you to believe concerns about inflation are just a republican talking point. >> republicans want you to believe the economy, is at its lowest point since before the pandemic began. prices are higher but americans spending record amount of money. stuart: we have a bombshell report on where covid came from. a top epidemiologist is pointing the finger at the wuhan market, not the wuhan lab. what does doctor scott atlas think of that? he served as trump's covid advisor. doctor scott atlas is here next. ♪♪

nasdaq up 60. the fda has authorized pfizer and moderna's covid boosters for all adults 18 and older in the united states. they barred, going much further, >> vaccinating everyone over the age of 12 starting february 1st. the lockdowns begin monday. how long did it last? 10 to 20 days. the fourth lockdown, schools they open. the netherlands have a partial lockdown and there's talk that germany could follow. that's the reason the market is under pressure. the reopening plays getting hit, bonds are rallying because europe's are down. it is scary. could that happen here? stuart: it started here but i don't think it will go as far. >> would protest even more.
9:18 am
epidemic says it began in a and the market in wuhan. doctor scott atlas joins us now. what do you make of it? >> i haven't seen the analysis but i will point out something critical. we don't have transparency on fundamentally important things not just this country but the world. all kinds of politicization of science was a bunch of virologists who should have known better, anyone who says is not natural is a conspiracy fierce and it was known it was natural. it wasn't known it was natural. i don't know the origin of the
9:19 am
virus. i never heard any discussion about the origin of the virus. this is critical, a critical example as there is about erratic comments from leadership of the public health effort. we've not had transparency. we have compounding factors about funding. the american people deserve better. an investigation of the origin of the virus and instead we have science the scientists acting politically rather than seeking the truth. stuart: the fda okayed the booster shots for all adults 18 and older. will we see booster mandates in america? >> sadly, nothing will surprise me about what the role of the government, the most important factor undermining the confidence, they created a
9:20 am
misconception. the vaccines are still good at protecting from death and serious illness in sweden, there might be some waning against protection of death in the very old, only those over 80 is a reduction in the protection against death after the nine months of the study but there is clear evidence that vaccines do not last long protecting against an infection and against spreading the infection. we are not really protected against getting infected or against that. you are protecting yourself by taking the vaccine against serious illness or death but not protecting society by having other people get vaccinated. not after four to six months.
9:21 am
personal protection, not really public protection, requires and should be allowed to have judgment on who should take the vaccine. as far as the booster, i think it makes sense. if you are high risk you want to consider taking the booster to mandate a booster to tell people under 20, who have no significant risk for serious illness, healthy people under 20, to mandate vaccines and boosters, boosters have no safe to daily. a few thousand people file for 30 days. that's not safety data. safety data on a vaccine takes 5 to 10 years, this is denial science, people in government who are really out of control, they are not acting on the
9:22 am
science, using words of science but not acting on the science. people need to become critical thinkers for themselves. stuart: scott atlas, thanks for being with us on a critical day. taking on president biden's vaccine mandates. >> science four bills in brandon, florida, you know the phrase let's go brandon. who is alongside him in the signing of those four bills? fiona, the second-grader suspended from school for refusing to wear a mask over and over again. this was deliberate but what does this legislation do? some of it is common sense. it requires private employers allow exemptions from the glad religious reasons, past recovery from covid. the ability to mandate vaccines and prevent schools from acquiring vaccination for students. stuart: that governor has his
9:23 am
head screwed on just right. in my opinion when it comes to covid if you go to florida it is bustling, like real society again. >> campaigning for 2024. stuart: check those futures, mixed picture down 70 on the dow, up 60 on the nasdaq, "the opening bell" is next. ♪♪ dad, we got this. we got this. we got this. we got this. we got this. yay! we got this. we got this!

worried about the rising gas, 72% of americans say it is causing hardship for the family and easy to see why. the average price for a gallon of gas just hit $3.41. that is up from an average of $2.12 the same time last year. when americans aren't feeling pain at the pump they are spending more on groceries with 3 quarters of americans saying their food. creating hardship for them as well as they tried to budget and battle inflation on all fronts. always setting up to a bleak economic picture for americans today. >> spent a lot of money to fill up my car. food prices are up. paying a lot more money than i have had in a while. it affected my wallet. i hope it gets better. i really do. got to get paid more. it is tough. tough right now.
9:56 am
>> reporter: you heard it, prices going up, wages are not magic and you understand why he was complaining about the gas prices. the station right here if you pay with a credit card for you are nearly paying $4 a gallon. all of this is about the economy and it is coming back and impacting the president. at last count, 58% of americans do not approve of the job biden is doing. stuart: 58%, big number. appreciate it. still ahead, kayleigh mcenany, rick grenell, tammy bruce, the 10:00 hour of varney is next. ♪♪ ♪♪

>> ♪ keep away from run around sue ♪ stuart: what's this? run around sue? i don't know why we're playing that, but there you go, good morning, everybody, it's 10:00 eastern, straight to the money, the dow sliding to the tune of 181 points, the nasdaq actually hitting an all-time high, intra day i guess, you're well above 16,000 as we speak. big tech is doing pretty well, the yield on the 10 year treasury is down so big tech goes up, watch him go, a new
10:01 am
high for microsoft by the way, 344 and there's the treasury yield 1.52%, bitcoin taking it on the chin today, its moved up a bit back to 58,000 it was much lower than that earlier, there's a pathway to some regulation in the build back better plan that has just passed the house. that's why bitcoin is under pressure today, all right folks, now this. cheers, on the house floor that the democrats pass build back better. in my opinion, it is not an honest piece of legislation, there's trickery involved here. the true cost of this giant move to the left as i would call it is closer to 5 trillion, not 2 trillion. here's how the trickery works. take, for example, the enhanced child care allowance, a very big program costing $130 billion a year, it's scheduled to expire in one year, so the counters at the cbo put the cost at
10:02 am
130 billion, but it won't expire when the year is up, which politician is going to end a program that gives money for children? so the real cost over 10 years is? 1.3 trillion, not 130 billion. they aren't going to tell you that. in fact, if you cost-out all these programs properly, the true cost of the plan overall is 4.9 trillion. according to the committee for responsible federal budget, more than double what the democrats say it's going to cost. we're going to be borrowing trillions of dollars, to say it's paid for , and will cost zero dollars, is another form of financial trickery. their strategy is very clear. get these programs on the books and dare republicans to takeaway money for parents and children, right before next year's elections. it's a cynical ploy, slipping in radical change with financial slight of hand. the wall street journal calls it the most dishonest spending bill in american history, and i agree second hour of "varney", we're just getting warmed up.
10:03 am
all right, fox news poll, a new fox poll shows president biden's approval 44%. it doesn't look like passing build back better will help him out at all. more people oppose the plan, 59% , saying it'll be paid for by people like them, not the wealthy. tammy bruce joins us this friday morning. it's going to pass the senate, look now it passed in the house. now it goes to the senate. if there's a single program, one of these social programs if a single one of it survives the senate you'll never get rid of it, it'll be here forever, right? >> yes and everyone knows that. once it passes, it's going to stay, nothing ever really expires but this is where the senate can come in and we've seen them delay and push things off. mitch mcconnell has some control
10:04 am
there, obviously, it's a 50/50 senate. we've seen the signal of the virginia election, we see these polls showing the american people are not just unhappy they are enraged. we do not like what's happening. you see it not just in his poll number but the vice president is at 28% approval. this is in a different poll, but you see this collapse of their approval ratings but also, congress' approval is in the dumpster. american people don't appreciate what either the republicans or the democrats are doing. this has got to be more than about elections. its got to be about what are we doing to the country, and to think about that, and sometimes it's better to do nothing and if that's what they can do is push it off, or kill it, there's got to be at least a couple of democrat senators who will help us do that. stuart: i don't think they are going to kill it. i think there will be some arm-twisting, senator manchin was apparently seen at the white house yesterday, there will be horse trading, some arm-twisting , something will come back and then he goes back to the house, i've got that, but
10:05 am
it's not, i don't think this is going to be killed completely. i can't see that. >> i think that the difference is that you could be right, that they are in a bubble. it's clear that just even their comments about inflation, that oh, you can afford it, this is just a little bit more extra money, when you're worth $100 million, when some of the wealthiest people in the country, inflation doesn't affect you. stuart: no it doesn't. >> it affects the average person whose middle class or some, you know, lower middle class, some moving into poverty. that's what tells you that they're disconnected from the american people, and when that has happened, as it has, then yes, they will make deals even that burn our own house down because it's not their house and that's what, look, we'll have certainly a turnover next year, but in the meantime, people's lives will be ruined, this economy will be even further destroyed, and even if there's a return from the inflationary period, or at least if that stops, you've gotta have a deflationary period to get back to what the normal spending, what a normal economy would look like, and it doesn't
10:06 am
look like we're going to get out of inflation. stuart: the impact on the economy has yet to be seen. >> that's right. stuart: tammy, thank you very much. >> thank you. stuart: have a great weekend. during the debate, house minority leader kevin mccarthy, he had an eight hour speech, okay? he was trying to delay the vote and he succeeded largely. he was interrupted, who interrupted him lauren? lauren: it was alexandria ocasio-cortez, listen for her voice at the end of this exchange. >> just a few weeks ago, congresswoman abigail spanburger said nobody elected joe biden to be fdr. stuart: oh. lauren: that says it, as we're looking at this spending, who, why? he wants the legacy of biden, who campaigned as a moderate, is being pushed to be progressive. he wants to be transformative just like fdr. fdr back in the 30s had large majorities. he actively campaigned selling
10:07 am
the new deal to help americans after the depression. biden doesn't have that passion. he doesn't have that clarity of message. the new deal, everybody knew what the new deal was, we have b bb, we have the american rescue plan, it's all over the place. the biden administration has a slight majority in both houses and low approval ratings so there's the difference. stuart: yes, big difference. a huge difference. lauren: but if you wonder like how is this happening they are trying to transform our relationship with the government parallel that to fdr. stuart: it's the socialists pushing this , they will never give it up, good stuff, lauren. check those markets again, please. we are now what, 37 minutes into the friday trading session. dow is down 250, nasdaq is up 72 kenny polcari with me now. i don't see much reaction, kenny , to the passing in the house of build back better. what do you say? >> yeah, i don't think so, because i think it's going to go on to the senate where it's
10:08 am
going to be dead on arrival at least initially. i do agree with you that i think there's absolutely going to be horse trading and prompt chuck schumer will promise manchin and sinema all kinds of goodies for them to buy their vote, which be very disappointing if that happens, but i fully expect that we're going to get a bill eventually, it's not maybe going to be this bill that we see in this current form but it's also not even going to be 1.5 trillion like you said or 1.7. it is absolutely going to be closer to 4-4.5 trillion by the time it's over. if everyone is honest with themselves but currently they don't want to be honest about it stuart: it seems to me the big threat for investors for the market is the tax hikes that are coming in build back better, because they directly affect the market, and also, this prying by the irs looking into your bank account for any transactions over $10,000. this is very intrusive. this is a big negative for investors. i'm actually surprised that we've not seen a bigger reaction
10:09 am
to it on wall street so far. >> yeah, i'm actually surprised we haven't but i think part of that is that wall street, i think, is thinking that it's not going to, it's not ultimately going to make its way in. if it does, then i think we're going to see more of a reaction but i think wall street is making the bet that there is still a shot that back with the horse trading and back and forth, that that ridiculous aspect of it is going to get tossed out or at least, i hope so and if it doesn't, then i think the market reacts. stuart: are you buying anything today? >> i'm not buying anything today, because i'm waiting to see , i want to see what happened with this vote today, i want to see how the weekend goes , i put some money to work earlier in the week so i'm good at the moment with money sitting on the side waiting but today i'm not actually doing anything. stuart: tell me what you put your where you put your money to work earlier this week. give me a hint. >> [laughter] so, i put some money into microsoft. stuart: i knew it. >> one of your favorites and it's becoming one of mine, every
10:10 am
day that goes by i just love it more and more but i put money into ibm and i put more money into jpmorgan. stuart: i hear it, 344 on microsoft, thank you very much, kenny. you're a good man, you're all right >> have a great weekend. stuart: we'll see you next week. the senate grilled president biden's pick for bank regulator, lauren? senator warren, elizabeth warren , came to saule omarova's defense. lauren: don't give senator warren for being discrete. listen to how she answered hillary vaughn. reporter: senator warren do you have concerned that dr. omarova has said the banking industry is an a-hole industry? >> i think she was talking about many of the people who work in that industry. stuart: oh, well it was a good response. lauren: it was good. look, saule omarova called for shrinking the big banks, carving out a bigger role for the fed that crimps the private banks profits and makes them smaller that is exactly what elizabeth warren wants, clearly. stuart: okay. a fiery hearing, i believe just the other day, right?
10:11 am
let's have a look at some of the movers start with williams s onoma down 3%? lauren: they are warning of product shortages lasting until middle of 2022 including this holiday season so it doesn't matter how good the earnings are, how strong demand is, you need product. stuart: hr departments use this workday software. down 2%. lauren: it's popular now because it helps companies fill jobs, right? they are also making an acquisition of a company that helps manage business tasks in the cloud the stock is down but one analyst points out it's a little bit of a breather that hit an all-time high earlier this week. stuart: hotels, now with austria cracking down, i see it, hotels are down look at that. lauren: it's all in the reopening plays today, is austria the only country in western europe that's going to reimpose some sort of lockdown, it's a full lockdown in austria is germany next so if you look at the reopening plays, the airlines, cruises are all down today. stuart: particularly troubling
10:12 am
is that austria will force vaccination, a vaccine mandate for all adults starting in february. nobody else has done that if it spreads travel places get hit. lauren: does that eventually include the booster, the third shot? stuart: yes. lauren: keeps going. stuart: thanks lauren. coming up, 30% of hospital workers remain unvaccinated. i'll ask dr. ben carson what he thinks is going on there. time running out, if you're looking to buy artificial christmas tree this year, a report on the christmas tree shortage, yes, there is one, next. vice president harris is blaming former president trump for the problems at the border. roll tape. >> we can't just flip a switch and make it better. the reality is that we inherited a system, an immigration system that was deeply broken. stuart: [laughter] you inherited an immigration system that actually worked, and to control the border. laura logan will have more comment on that, coming up, next

stuart: all right, let's go to the border, bill is there joining the texas department of public safety on a heavily armed gun patrolling the rio grande river, you're on the boat now, what did you see there, bill? reporter: stuart good morning to you that's exactly right. we are embedded with texas dps as they continue to have to help out their federal partners through operation lone star and what they're looking for here on the rio grande is going to be drug smuggling, human smuggling, rafts coming across the river you name it they are looking for it obviously a lot of the illegal activity that happens along the border happens in between the ports of entry and that's why we'll often see those rafts or people coming across the river so texas dps has these
10:18 am
boats patrolling hotspots down here in the rio grande valley. one of the things they are looking for is drugs, we know fentanyl has been pouring across the border how much are we talking take a look at the startling graphic here. the state of texas alone just in 2021 through last week, has already seized 413 pounds of fentanyl just to put that in perspective for you, that is enough lethal doses to kill 93.7 million people. just one kilo of fentanyl can kill 500,000 people, so that is an enormous amount. they aren't just looking for drugs they are obviously looking for human smugglers as well plenty of that down here take a look at this video out of far texas, down in the rgv, texaspursuing this truck driven by a suspected human smuggler after he saw it leaving a suspected stash house, they pull it over and take a look at these photos here. the smuggler was dressed up as a fake construction worker, he had a little vest on, a neon hard hat on as well, trying to play the part. he had five illegal immigrants
10:19 am
inside of the vehicle with him, that smuggler was charged with human smuggling five counts as well as evading. it's not just happening down here in the rio grande valley though take a look at this video up in the del rio area, this is where texas dps is also working the private ranchers where the runners like to come through in the middle of the night on private property trying tophet further into texas on this night they were able to get more than 20 of these runners often wearing camouflage, black, they do not want to be caught, and texas dps hads are the only ones out working those private ranches, if they weren't there the runners would get through without any resistance, back out here live texas dps is patrol ling this river all day long basically early in the morning all the way until the evening we're embedded with them throughout the entire day as they are hunting for , again, drug, human smugglers and any criminal activity just last week , in a span of 14 hours here in the rio grande valley, four
10:20 am
ms-13 gang members were apprehended so that gives you an idea of the activity. we'll be out here all gay day long, anything happens we'll be sure to send it back to you. stuart: great reporting, new vice president kamala harris is blaming former president trump for what she calls the broken immigration system. that's her words. listen to this. >> well it's not going to be overnight. we can't just flip a switch, and make it better. the reality is that we inherited a system, an immigration system, that was deeply broken, and it's requiring us to actually put it back together in terms of creating a fair process that is effective and efficient. stuart: deeply broken system, she's putting it back together and making it fair. lair a logan on the screen, what do you say to that, laura? >> well it's a lie. it's a complete lie and it's meant to hide the truth from the american people, and the truth is that the biden administration has open border
10:21 am
borders who are running their policy who they opened the border from day one, its never been closed. you know, stuart, don't you remember when obama was going down to the border to address the crisis in 2014-2015? we surpassed those levels, and yet this administration has never called it a crisis. they never have taken one single step or altered one single policy in order to reduce the flow of people coming across the border. in fact every action they take increases the flow of people coming over the border. their only instructions to border patrol are get rid of these people, get them out of sight as fast as you can, and would you believe this , stuart? bill was talking about the fentanyl coming over, do you know that this country now for the first time in history, the cdc estimates more than 100,000 americans died from overdose deaths in a one-year period. never happened before. stuart: how can we do away with
10:22 am
this. we've all been around for a long long time saying exactly what's happening, the fentanyl, the migrants, et cetera et cetera. why is it that nothing gets done and a second question, isn't this beginning to be a real political problem for biden? >> well, you know, they don't care what the political problems are for biden because it's very easy to just get rid of biden, right? and blame him for everything, and what they're not addressing is the actual policy itself. the policy itself is one of open borders. they have removed the word " illegal" from the language that border patrol agents are allowed to use. the media followed suit. we no longer talk about illegal immigrants, we talk about migrants. why? because the united nations has recognized migration as a human right, so the biden administration now is talking about the 1.2 billion refugees
10:23 am
that have a human right to migrate and what they've done by tying the hands of border patrol , tying the hands of law enforcement, and giving rights under mayorkas' policies giving rights to illegal immigrants to sue the authorities and to take other action that supercedes the rights of american citizens to have a secure border, to have a sovereign nation and so on and so on, and none of that is being addressed because the media either ignores it or covers up for the biden administration. they lie about it, every time you see the problem like you have say fox news will put over their drone and you'll see all of the haitians under the bridge , what is the strategy get rid of the haitians, ban the media, and pretend that it's not happening and its been dealt with. why do they move the children and the families in the middle of the night? why are they moving them on charter planes? why are they paying hundreds of millions of dollars to catholic charities and jewish charities
10:24 am
and ngo's? to get rid of these children? why have they remove removed all of the checks and the dna testing and all of the processes that were designed to protect children from traffickers and to protect women and young men from being trafficked by the cartels? they don't do that anymore. they don't interrogate them or interview them they got rid of it all. stuart: i'm glad you're here to point this stuff out, lara, because a lot of people just simply don't know what's going on. i have to end it but thanks for being here and you can watch part three of the new season of lara logan has no agenda, global extremism, is available now on fox nation.com. coming up, austria going into their fourth national lockdown. worse than that, they're going to mandate the jab, for everyone, over the age of 12. could those extreme measures appear in europe, could they come here? good question to ask, a fox poll shows 51% of parents are opposed

10:30 am
netflix, what do you got? >> yeah, so actually they were rallying more than 1% last hour, and this is because of new covid curves in europe, germany, that means they are going to stream more netflix. stuart: so i'm told, robinhood? >> yeah, despite winning that meme stock lawsuit last night in massachusetts, deutsche bank is calling it a sell this morning only worth in their view $32 because deutsche bank says that meme stock euphoria is causing wall street to overestimate the growth when it comes to this , let's get back to apple by the way it's rallying maybe a little bit on that apple car news but i think it's because it's underperformed in the last few months, it's playing catch up to other big tech like google which we know is up some 80% this year. stuart: 158 on apple so it's 2.3 trillion roughly. >> that's all, right? imagine another trillion for apple car. it's all numbers. stuart: i'll take it i'll take it, i'm not invested in apple i never bought it. >> i know, 40 years. stuart: i should have.
10:31 am
>> whose idea was that? stuart: my children said to me, you gotta buy apple, dad it was about $12 a share and i said no, its had its run. >> $12 before four splits. stuart: true, susan, we'll see you again later. >> okay. stuart: look at this a new fox news poll, it shows 51% of parents oppose mandating the covid vaccine for students. now look whose here, dr. ben carson is back. do you think the jab should be mandated for kids? >> well, you know, i generally am not for mandates because, you know, this is america. this is a place with freedom and liberty but also, you know, recognize that we have the best healthcare system in the world, so why should government bureaucrats be mandating what people should do for their health? why not let them work with their healthcare providers? now, as far as those parents are concerned, it shows me that they're thinking individuals,
10:32 am
because we know that the mortality associated with covid-19 in children is about the same as it is for seasonal flu and we don't go through all these things every year for seasonal flu, but what we don't know is whether the long term implications of these vaccines. this is still an experiment, and who wants to risk their kid in an experiment and when did we get to the point where we mandate people take part in an experiment? stuart: fair point. let me raise this with you as well. according to the cdc, 30% of hospital workers are still un vaccinated. i thought they be jumping at the chance of vaccination if they are working in hospitals but apparently not. can you explain why 30% are still not vaccinated? >> well, i think healthcare workers probably have been exposed to a little more information than the average
10:33 am
person, and also, many of them being on the front line have already had covid, so if they have it already, and they have natural immunity why would they then subject themselves to additional risk that they don't even know about? when we know that it's very very unusual for anybody whose had it already to get it again or to be able to transmit it, and the cdc admitted that last week. they said we don't have evidence of people who had covid already being able to transmit it or being reinfected, and then they added, but we don't really collect that data. well how foolish is that. you don't collect the data and then you make broad sweeping mandates based on incomplete facts? that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. stuart: well is there any chance that some of these mandates, especially in the healthcare industry, could be taken back so that you don't force people out of the hospitals and out of the doctor' offices and we've got a full staff medical system.
10:34 am
can we not do that? >> i think we are gradually moving in that direction. you know, there are other countries who are making exceptions and are actually understanding the impact of natural immunity and some other things, and also remember, stuart, we have a number of treatments that have proven quite effective. the cdc won't acknowledge them, won't look at them, but many people in the healthcare professions are aware of them and know that they have access to them, so i think that really accounts for the difference, and we just need to get away from all of this mandating. you know, liberty is the reason that so many people came to the united states of america, and the government works for us. the people are not the subjects of the government. i think some people have forgotten that. stuart: that's the difference between europe and america. you saw what they're doing in austria now, mandating everybody
10:35 am
has to be vaccinated by february you couldn't do that in america, fortunately, but you can do it over there. that's why i'm here. >> well they are trying. stuart: that's why i'm here, always great to see you, come back soon, please. >> you too. thank you. stuart: now, at least two children in california were left sick after getting the jab. lauren: yup. stuart: did they get the wrong dose? lauren: 14 children were given a double dose, and two kids got sick because of it. couldn't go to school, stomach aches one fell down, how did this happen? we don't know. why does it keep happening? we don't know. they are reviewing the mistake, the cdc says the kids will be okay because when they were doing the testing and trials they gave them all different doses so they will be okay but for parents on the fence, you hear story after story that kids are getting the wrong doses, you're going to hesitate. by the way itch a parent is taking their child to be vaccinated, the orange cap is the vaccine that you want, not the purple. purple is adults, orange is for kids. stuart: that right? universal across america.

10:41 am
points off the dow industrials. we're just one week from black friday, retailers struggling to keep the shelves stocked, jonathan hunt is at the port of long beach in california. jonathan, those ports are supposed to be open 24/7 for over a month, how has the log jam eased? reporter: well, two parts to that, stu. first of all the number of containers are on the docks at the twin ports of los angeles and long beach have come down slightly on the other hand, the number of container ships waiting offshore has gone up from a month ago, we actually hit a record high this week, comfortably above 80 of those container ships waiting days, even weeks to get in. the latest figures we have as of today, 75 of those ships waiting to get in, and that, despite president biden this week touting his own personal
10:42 am
intervention to try to unblock the supply chain. listen here to the president. >> i just had to convince the ports of long beach and los angeles where 40% of all products come into the western united states, to stay open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, because they are backing up ships and container vessels for miles and miles and miles, hundreds of them, and that's the reason why you don't have things on the shelves. reporter: and the president is right on that at least. there are a lot of shelves that are bare and a lot of stores across the country, and anybody whose been shopping online is probably experienced the difficulties of finding the particular size you want, inventory everywhere is down and it's all very well for the president to say well, i told the ports to open 24/7. it's not as simple as simply opening the gates here of the port 24 hours a day, seven days a week. there's a whole lot more to the supply chain, as the port
10:43 am
director here tried to diplomatically explain this week listen here. >> we implemented flex hours, opening the gates a little bit earlier, staggering lunches, working a little bit later in between the day and night shifts , while offering the 24/7 capability here at the port, it's an effort to try to get this entire orchestra of supply chain players to get on the same calendar. we've had very few takers to date. reporter: very few takers for that 24/7 operation. meaning they still don't have enough truck drivers, stu. they still have the unions not wanting to work the long shore man for instance 24/7 so it's all very well for president biden to say i told them to open the gates, the practicality of that is a lot more complicated and that's why when we get to black friday next week, a lot of americans are still going to have trouble finding what they really want to buy. stu? stuart: got it, jonathan hunt

inflation. stuart: exactly. all right, let's get real here. i want to talk about your book. it's the all-american christmas, i know it's out now, just in time for the holidays, obviously , there it is on the screen right now. this is all about fox stars and how they celebrate christmas. where am i? where am i? or lauren? rachel: you're in part two. i wanted to make sure we hit number one with this book before we did the stuart stuary varney traditions and everything he did in england growing up and how he has come to american tradition, you're in part two. >> i sent you an e-mail. you never responded my e-mail, stuart, about getting in the book. stuart: did you really? >> i did. lauren too, come on. stuart: look, it's a great book, i've read it. no i'm not in it, but it really is cool, a wonderful christmas thing. can i raise a pet peeve of mine about christmas? maybe this isn't the time but i'm going to do it anyway. i always objected to those
10:52 am
mounds, those piles of presents under the tree, lots of junk, lots of people buying stuff, just to have them to un wrap it. the kids get tired of it. do you share that feeling? rachel: yeah, i do. i think there's an over commercialization of christmas in general and i think one of the things that i love about this book is so many of the people that we interview the fox talent, many of them came from nothing and their christmas memories had nothing to do with what was under the tree, what the they really remember is when grandma came over the food they cooked, the time they spent together as a family and that's what we hope people would get from this book. the heartwarming stories hopefully will remind them of their own memory, but there's also fun stuff in here, there's play lists and recipes and all kinds of stuff. >> we have nine kids though, the tree does get pretty full on christmas morning i'll just say that. rachel: by virtue of the number of kids. stuart: just tell me if you don't mind, do you guys have a personal family tradition that's
10:53 am
really different from everybody else? >> we always cut down our christmas tree, you probably know this , being a stihl guy, i like going out and getting my christmas tree and it's fresh. we love that, rachel setup a nativity that her mom gave her that's the whole down of bethlehem that takes up a couple big tables, the kids love that and they try to break them too and try to drop them and play with them and it's a lot of fun and we want to keep christ in christmas, which is theres an attack on christmas we feel and we celebrate christmas at fox and there's no better way to get to know someone you might see on tv for three hours a day or two hours a day to see how they celebrate christmas and how they celebrate now and the stories very perm to them, they share them and all in this book and you can get it at fox news, books.com or anywhere books are sold. we were number one a couple days ago on amazon we're now like number four, the 1619 project was beating us stuart.
10:54 am
so help us get back to number one. stuart: buy that book, foxnews .com is where you can get it. great to have you on the show guys and i'll be in next year's edition. thank you very much indeed. rachel: thank you, stuart. stuart: if you're thinking of getting an artificial christmas tree this year, buy one sooner rather than later. supplies are dwindling. lydia hu at the national tree company in cranford, new jersey. if there's a shortage, i got to believe the prices have gone up. is that right? reporter: oh, stuart you're exactly right. the average price for an artificial tree is around $104 but the national tree company, it had to hike their prices this year by 25%, to offset their costs that have gone up by about 30%, which driving those costs, well these trees are made in china and the container ships as we know are costing more they say they used to pay $2,000 for a container ship and now it's up
10:55 am
to $20,000. another issue is the inventory. the christmas tree association says that retailers are down about 25% of the inventory they usually have this time of year. watch. >> we think there's going to be very high de demand for three reason, people have money in their pockets, last years christmas was a bit of a bust because of covid and three is the housing market so everybody wants to decorate their new home , inventory starts getting tight and we start seeing empty shelves. reporter: so the message here, stuart is if you had your heart on a particular type of artificial tree maybe one that spins, you better go out and buy it this weekend, because supplies are not expected to last. back to you. stuart: lidia, thank you very much indeed. still ahead, on this program, just one hour, sandra smith, kayleigh mcenany, ric grenell and there's this , europe imposing new and draconian covid lockdowns, austria is forcing all to get the jab.

now this was the government of austria will impose a nationwide lockdown starting monday and a vaccine mandate for everyone starting in february, the first time the european democracy has ordered forced vaccinations. we have to show a negative test every day to get on a bus. honest, isn't it? you wonder if the lockdown folks will take? from europe. cases are rising, 90,000 new cases a day, 70,000 a couple weeks ago. you can see it coming, more restrictions, more mandates. disney won't let you go on their cruise ships unless you are fully vaccinated. you can't go into a restaurant in new york city without your vax papers. and and republican states oppose mandates.
11:03 am
and 58% believe vaccines are safe and effective, the value is down from 65% two months ago. 49% approve of biden vaccination mandate on private companies, down from 56% in september. bottom line, if democrat states try to impose more restrictions and mandates and try to become more like europe they have to contend with voters are increasingly against being told what to do. this is america. it is not europe. the third hour of varney, we are just getting warmed up. we've got more on build back better, more on the markets, more on everything but i'm getting into the e b market, the electric vehiclemakers. jonathan honing is with me in studio, normally in chicago but

managed. there is going to be some winners or something else but so many of those dot.com names never came back. when you see valuations like this, 500, 8000 times earnings, the company can succeed but if stock prices go nowhere because they are highly valued. stuart: you are the only person who has ever come on this program and said i must a ton of money on that, shouldn't have bought it. you are an honest man. >> the secret of investing is not that you are right all the time but cut the losers and let the winners run. none of us are omnipotent. we are not gods. you can say i was wrong and move on. none of us are right all the time. take the loss and move on to the next trade. stuart: what brings you to new york? >> i climb on the side of 5 scraper today. there's a new attraction called city climb, and i don't think

77 degrees. susan is with us looking at some movers including boeing. >> i would rather be in st. petersburg in the cold. boeing is a big drag with the wall street journal reporting in the past hour the boeing 87 dream liner and defects slowing down production further. talking about problems with the doors, making new planes in the earliest resumption for delivery will be february or march, it is not given the problems with the 37 and the max jet. stuart: amazon. here is what i want to hear about. amazon, google and microsoft hitting record highs. >> apple too. nasdaq, has more to do with 10 year treasury yields but this is a big announcement in the past hour. amazon, microsoft, google and
11:31 am
even oracle to bid the $10 billion just icon, to microsoft under the trump administration is amazon sued, politically motivated with trump upset at washington post coverage with jeff bezos, the pentagon canceling the deal, starting all over again and this time the entire contract could go to more than one cloud provider, not just microsoft or amazon but all four in different parcels. stuart: the bottom line is amazon is not at the record high, microsoft is. and apple is. good stuff indeed for big tech. the first country, austria, first country in europe to make vaccines mandatory for all residents over the age of 12, got to get the jab in austria. austria begins its fourth lockdown next weekend germany's health minister says they won't rule out lockdown the the. rick grenell is former us
11:32 am
ambassador to germany and joined me now. these chronic lockdowns over there, forcing people to get vaccinated, i don't think you can do that in the united states. what's the difference from here to there? >> there is a difference between austria and germany. i don't think it will happen in germany. the minister of health, i spoke this morning with doctor hendrick streak who is for all intents and purposes the doctor fauci of germany, much better than doctor fauci and he told me at the height of covid for germany, icu covid patients totaled 5800 people in december of 2020. today they have 3500. government officials panicking as they look at the numbers but
11:33 am
the reality is a lot more people are vaccinated even in germany and i don't see lockdowns coming. bavaria, the munich area, southern germany, they will never go for that. there's been a lot of protests in berlin just like here but they are doing a good job, watching it and they all got to remember freedom first. you can't force people to do things and that the lesson germany needs. stuart: you couldn't do it here? you couldn't have a vaccine mandate over the age of 12, you couldn't do that in america. >> looking at the picture you are showing in austria it was scary, i am very uncomfortable with it. stuart: next one, president biden says he is considering a diplomatic boycott of the upcoming beijing olympics. watch this.
11:34 am
>> coming out of the beijing a mix. >> we are considering. >> there are areas we have concern, human rights abuses, serious concerns about human rights abuses. stuart: do you think we should boycott the olympics, athletes as well, just not go at all and if we did that, what would it achieve? >> we need to be clear the human rights abuses in china, the fact that they don't allow people to have access to the internet. a bunch of problems. we need to be clear on those. it is a little late to tell athletes after they have been training and sacrificing that they can't go. what i would say is better, is have a corporate boycott. no us company should be giving money. try to squeeze them in a different way, and at this point i would have supported a boycott of the olympics a while ago before people train
11:35 am
intensely. we have waited too long, it wouldn't be fair to our athletes. what i would say is let's figure out a way to squeeze china and remind the biden administration they should have done this a long time ago. china ever since they came to alaska and lectured us with finger waving, they have been getting the best of us and we need an administration that acts quicker and much more forcefully. stuart: will there be a military component to this reacting forcefully to china? i saw general jack teen suggesting we needed more force upfront, closer to china. what are you saying to that? >> i am a diplomat and tried to avoid talking war and military stuff. the state department needs to have diplomats that are cutting-edge, that have muscle, that can solve these problems
11:36 am
before we go to war. diplomats stick to the lane of talking about diplomacy. stuart: you sound critical of anthony blinken, secretary of state, aren't you? >> incredibly. anthony blinken has demonstrated that he's manipulated by george soros, the blinken center at the open society, what that has done, albania and how randomly they put sanctions on the conservative members, no proof of that. we had members of congress like leesville and asking for proof and anthony blinken, when i was acting director of national intelligence, none of that information was in front of me and i was watching closely. this is manipulation, political manipulation, we see weakness from anthony blinken and addie sherman and let's finish by talking victoria new to push

the steel dossier when she was in the obama administration protecting her friend hillary clinton. the media have never gone after what she knew and somebody who was concentrating on england and great britain. she had a lot of influence over the steel dossier. stuart: you know what you're talking about? a pleasure to have you on the show with all these revelations. rick grenell, have a great weekend. thanks. an american blocked from leaving china for four years is back on us soil, released monday right before biden's meeting with china's president. he had never been convicted of a crime and held unlawfully under china's coercive exit been because of those bands the us government has warned citizens to reconsider traveling to china. your thanks giving turkey and changing the subject, thanksgiving turkey will cost 24% more this year and nearly
