9:00 am
maria: good advice. >> my new nephew two months old, liam laughed at all my jokes. i am just that funny. maria: an audience of one. it has been great being with you. "varney and company" begins right now. >> i'm lauren simonetti, stuart will be back tomorrow. it looks like another rough day. futures sharply, the current vaccines are likely to struggle against the homework on very ands. it is down 260. the nasdaq is down 36.
9:01 am
this is the last day of november. the s&p and nasdaq, things can change today. the 10 year treasury down 7.2 basis points at one.14%. oriole is selling off by 3.5%. the crypto currency, bitcoin is up $200.58,670. president biden says lockdowns are not needed to curb the oma cron variant, new covid cases of started to come down again down 4% in the last two weeks according to the new york times. jay powell is warning the new variant could risk employment and economic activity adding
9:02 am
more uncertainty, janet yellen testifying for the senate banking committee at 10:00 am. lots to discuss. "varney and company" is about to begin. ♪♪ lauren: the latest read a case shiller it, jumping on an annual basis, a bit slower than expected in september. let's check futures once again because we had a respite after a major selling we saw friday. the dow gained 250 points a far cry from the 905, the s&p and the nasdaq were higher. all 3 major averages down between a 12:45% if you look at
9:03 am
the tech side and 0.8% if you are looking at the blue chip average. ed, good to see you. oma cron is a worry for investors but there is so much we don't know so what changed from yesterday? >> it is unknown unknown. a lot of questions whether this is going to be as bad as delta was and if that is the case we can deal with that, there is speculation it might be worse, the vaccines and therapeutics might not work but nobody knows anything for sure. what we know for sure is we dealt with the alpha, beta, and delta versions of the virus extremely well. we saw the drugmakers came up with both vaccines and therapeutics very quickly and i think they would again. the experience with lockdowns, they create havoc for the economy.
9:04 am
if we don't get the lockdowns or severe restrictions on mobility i think the market continues to move higher after some volatility. lauren: we have to deal with this forever. waiting for the data, investors get this volatility and up and down every day. >> in 2009, i've been keeping a diary of panic attacks, the most panic prone bull market and that makes sense. the stock market, major decline back then. and on the other hand, and the fundamentals upset these
9:05 am
panics, >> >> he is very concerned about inflation. he's issue in now and got the nomination and awaiting confirmation. does he have the political freedom to clampdown and inflation by accelerating? >> i think he will play it both ways. on the one hand and on the other hand he will be a 2-handed economist and what he is going to say as we are concerned about inflation or monitoring it and as a result we are tapering purchases of bonds, and start raising interest rates in the second half of next year, this relationship between tapering and raising rates. not asleep at the switch, and
9:06 am
then talk about the new virus variance, that the concern. what it does is leave the market to conclude it will not continue at a faster pace and still looking for two or three pieces of the fed funds rate which is a surprise. lauren: you don't think he accelerates the taper and wait this out. do you think the jobs report will do that? >> the jobs report could be strong, unemployment claims the week of november 20th dropped to 199,000. it dropped below 300,000, the labor market was getting back to normal much more quickly than the fed might have expected.
9:07 am
i would not be surprised by a blowup report on friday and that would be a good thing, good to see people getting employed and we have to watch the wages very closely but i don't think the fed chair is going to change what the resident will change the current pace of tapering based on the development of the variance. >> that might be what investors are nervous about at 9:00 eastern time. thank you, good to see you. primary testing shows covid antibody drugs from eli lilly lose some of their effectiveness against a cron. let's bring in doctor mark siegel, good to see you. how much do we read into the development that not only are the vaccines maybe not able to keep up but our arsenal of treatments against covid 19 might not keep up? >> i will parse that out. it is not surprising that the antibodies which are directly
9:08 am
targeted on spike protein would diminish if there's an issue of a lot of mutations is a fear word. but overall the spike protein hasn't changed much even with all these mutations and i expect the vaccines to work. i think they may work a little bit less but i think they will work. we are in the middle of testing in the united states in a very exciting way. taking the spike protein from oma cron and putting it on a pseudo-virus like a robot and testing it against serum of people who are vaccinated, we will have that matter in a days in major medical centers and i expect we will have coverage from the vaccine maybe not as much which will be a good reason to get boosted right now. one thing that is surprising that i do to bring to your attention is you have the merck drug coming out and that will for sure not diminish no matter what variance it is. there's been recent data, a little disappointing but merck
9:09 am
is down, and pfizer and moderna are down in the moderna ceo, there is concern about the vaccines and unless there's information i'm hearing, i'm hearing from medical centers, we don't know the answer to that but looks promising. lauren: we don't know the answer. we are waiting on this data. it will take two weeks, yet you and the cdc are reiterating all adults get their booster. i got my booster shot over the weekend. what i said and what pharmacists said another people waiting for their number 3 shot said, is this effective against oma cron? should the messaging the get the booster? if it could hurt the credibility of the people that are saying that. >> great question and it is counterintuitive but the answer is yes. the more immunity the better if you don't have 100% protection. if i told you pfizer gives you
9:10 am
60% protection you would want to maximize that. you wouldn't want it to drop to 20% because you hadn't been vaccinated six months ago. the more this is an issue the more recently you want to have been vaccinated. i to be clear, get your booster now is the answer if you have been holding off especially if this ends up being a predominant variant which is still something we don't know. early signs from south africa look like it is quite contagious but i keep hearing from my sources on the ground that it is my order, that is not actually leading to as many hospitalizations as delta and the bigger problem in the united states is still delta, the vaccine working well against delta, 95% of you boosted. get boosted. lauren: let's say this variant from south africa is more transmissible but milder so therefore it infects a lot of people, does that give us close to herd immunity?
9:11 am
that would be the positive. the negative, in getting there, we do get another lockdown because masks might becoming back to new york city. we have a mask advisory from mayor deblasio reckoned everyone wear masks at all times when indoors or even in a public setting even if they are vaccinated. >> with a points. if this is a milder strain and it ends up predominating and outcompete delta these viruses compete in a way, if this variant out competes, you see a milder form of the virus predominating, it was 1920, that would be phenomenal and in terms, it may happen, superimposed lockdowns and restrictions and masking all of those are political moves, not medical moves. in new york city, 95% of adults in new york city are vaccinated. what message are you spending? you want to wear a mask as a
9:12 am
precaution in close quarters if you are not sure but the chances are low of your catching it that way if you are vaccinated. you can't send these mixed messages and lockdowns, we've shown the tremendous harm lockdowns of cause. a new study shows harm to children that lockdowns caused psychologically and physically. lauren: the frustration really comes in because we keep saying there is a rollback on some of these restrictions but when it comes to masks in school, my children are wearing masks in school, are they going to be wearing masks forever? people are frustrated and looking for answers that might not exist. >> the masking in schools cause a lot of harm in terms of socialization, with your kids, with other kids. i'm a big fan of testing. i have been pounding on that,
9:13 am
if you have a rapid test in your home, test your child before they go to school a couple times a week. much more predictive than a mask. lauren: wash your face, brush your teeth, do your nose swab, go to school, thanks for the time and the perspective. >> brush your teeth. lauren: three times a day. the market is down but not sharply, the dow is down 281 points. the bounce back it got yesterday after the friday, 900 point decline. cnn anchor quiz cuomo claims he's not an advisor to his older brother andrew cuomo. roll it. >> i am not an advisor. i am a brother. i wasn't in control of anything. i was here to listen and offer "my take". lauren: damning new evidence shows otherwise. we are all over that story. covid, a new record high in new hampshire. what will the state do about it? i will ask chris sununu after

missouri-based federal judge is holding the federal vaccine mandate for healthcare workers in 10 states. in arkansas, i, kansas, nebraska, new hampshire, north and south dakota. as well is wyoming. the judge keeping the rule leads to staff shortages. and they will not face a serious punishment this year. they will face removal or suspension. hospital suspension in new hampshire hitting the record high over the weekend. good to see you. will you be imposing any new mandates or restrictions in their state.

decision for themselves, we drove on the lawsuits to fight back against the biden mandates. one was a huge victory yesterday. they were going to close if that biden mandates stayed in place. imagine nursing homes closing, loved ones not having to care, we are short staff across the country. these mandates have a powerful and negative effect. folks have to make that decision and get vaccinated. lauren: take a look here, a new poll shows you are the fourth most popular governor in the united states of america. why not make a run for senate and take the seat? >> winning was not the issue at all. you can effect change, stay connected with your

politics with it, it is a fundamental difference. they want to stall, and we blow up and rebuild the system. and we've done all these wonderful things but you have to implement, design those symptoms, bring in the right people, design the systems, talk to the parent and the businesses, figure out what is working and what isn't. i love this stuff in terms of public service. lauren: it apparently let's you. let's check the markets this tuesday morning, the dow down 260 points, 6 minutes and 30

9:31 am
and the s&p 500, and the nasdaq is doing the best of it. and and as the 10 year yield go down, the moderna ceo, this spooked the market. what did you say. >> going against pfizer, talking about the effectiveness of the oma cron variant was moderna's ceo saying the current vaccine won't be as effective, may not be ready that soon.
9:32 am
the ceo saying it is antibody cocktail doesn't mean as effective against the new variant, some off in both stocks. they are a bit more optimistic, 100 days and already working on it. depends on who you believe depending on the vaccine maker. lauren: they can tweak this really fast but march is far away. less than 100 days with the remarkable. they are rallying on this oma cron news. it delay the return to normal. >> talking about concerns a fresh lockdowns, stay-at-home winners, we had them up in the premarket, telethon and zoom getting an update which is why was up in the premarket.

it is a binary trade, forced to stay at home or go back in travel once again. a binary trade, travel is down, the recovery rally didn't last that long, you benefit from the lockdowns if they are shutting down restricting travel. lauren: a crime could delay the recovery for the airlines by a year. >> at least i would say. it is a binary trade and depends how many cases, it depends which vaccinemakers, square is getting an upgrade the day after you had jack dorsey quitting at the top of twitter and bank of america so the squares with $241 million

9:36 am
stock, half of what he owns in the single largest, only took two days to unload and that might be to taxes, we know there is a washington state tax or capital gains that might go to 7% for any holding over a quarter of $1 million. like elon musk, selling 8 or $9 billion in stock to raise cash to pay their taxes. he might be trying to get ahead of this because if you pay 7% more, $500 million is a big tax bill. lauren: let's look at the dow winners today, there are just two, and apple, tech is doing better today. interesting to watch. they are up ahead on earnings. the s&p is green on the screen. tyler technologies, tesla at 1153.

>> >> hillary vaughan is on capitol hill. senators who oppose his confirmation like elizabeth warren. >> we could see some testy exchanges because senator elizabeth warren has in public about her opposition, calling him a dangerous man. she opposes it and there could be several senators who did not
9:44 am
support him initially in 2018 when he was confirmed. expect targeting questions from those senators but we get a peek at what he is expected to say along with janet yellen today, how is going to paint an ominous picture of the state of economy due to the new oma cron variant. if a cron does prolong the pandemic it to keep prices rising in her job growth and make the supply chain even worse. taking notes from the blow the delta variant did in the summer to the us economy as it stoked more fears and concerns and impacted consumer confidence. we will hear from yellen who will continue to pressure congress to act on the debt limit which would evince our rate the recovery of congress doesn't do anything by december 3rd which is considered the x date of when the us will run out of money but will also say the recent rise in covid 19 cases and
9:45 am
emergence of the variant adds increased to economic activity and increased uncertainty for inflation. greater concerns about the virus could reduce people's willingness to work in person which would slow progress in the labor market and intensify supply chain disruption. the headline from this is powell sees at this point oma cron could be a very serious threat to inflation, that americans are experiencing right now and that could extend inflation issues well into next year and possibly beyond depending on how long oma cron sticks around, how bad it is and how much impact it has. lauren: you know what extend inflation? build back better. larry kudlow is with us now. what are you expecting to hear from powell? if he's worried about inflation, does he kill the bill?
9:46 am
>> he won't. they should in general, this advanced stuff from powell makes no sense at all. there is no emergency, with the health assistant secretary at hhs, we talk to scott gottlieb, marty markcarrie, all of them reminding us that we are about 92% herd immunity between those recovering from covid successfully, natural immunity, those getting the vaccination. out of south africa health official down there, there is a mild issue, it may spread but if it affects people in a very mild way less then original covid.
9:47 am
the fed chairman, he is not the health department in the white house and his issue, my view, the biggest threat to the economy is inflation. the cause is too much government spending starting last winter and too much money created by the fed. powell says this inflation will go into next year. that is what yellen has said but therefore we should not have any new bills of social spending and high taxes. one would increase demand, taxes would reduce supply, that's more inflationary and the fed has got to battle up and stop buying bonds, end quantitative easing and get folks ready for interest rate hikes to fight inflation in january and if i am wrong, if the exports, if it becomes more
9:48 am
of an emergency, if if if, the fed can deal with it. the early returns are that this is a mild problem, not worthy in my opinion of the federal reserve getting easier or looser. they are the principal cause of inflation and inflation is the press because of the economy. lee you lauren: the market said rates go up let's say june and you are saying they should start the campaign to raise interest rates to combat inflation in january next month. >> yes. exactly right and they should stop quantitative easing, no more bond buying, immediately like next month. you had this huge increase in the balance sheet of the fed and the money supply.
9:49 am
you can have inflation at 6% or 7% or 8% unless the fed was financing government spending and in general financing price increases. this is crazy. this is a risk of 1970. powell who is not a doctor, the fed is not a health department, right now even president biden is saying know lockdowns and no emergency. that is the head scratcher. stuart: stay calm and carry on his what the president said yesterday. you don't want to miss larry weekdays at 4:00 pm eastern. every day on fox business, not just the currency of the dark web anymore, crypto is mainstream. we will take you to the soon to be renamed arena in los angeles. ♪♪

as amazon trading at 3575. we are seeing a flight to safety and the ten year treasury yield down 6.4 basis points at 1.43%. as stocks get better and the nasdaq turn positive we saw treasuries get a little bit. this morning getting the latest readout consumer confidence. jackie deangelis good morning. >> 109.5 this is not a very encouraging number because estimates were up to 111. last month 113.8 to give you context. i'm not surprised because consumers right now are edgy. they go out they can't find what they need. i think everybody is in a holding pattern of not knowing what's going to happen. and uncertainty is hanging on the marketplace then you have the biden of modest ration policies and more people digest them and think about them and think about the supply chain and understand inflation and the confidence is not there.
10:02 am
lauren: the policies are showing up under the christmas tree. up 124%. that is something that people see when you place your order on your phone for something. also jan yellen is fed chair, jerome powell getting ready to testify before the senate banking and housing urban affairs committee we will monitor what they say and bring you any news that comes from it. it all begins right now 10:00 o'clock eastern time. twitter ceo jack dorsey stepping down. he'll be replaced by the company's chief technology officer. republicans warning that censorship may worsen under the new radical ceo. this is the new york post op-ed says the media helped hide the real joe biden by censoring hunters stories. the author of that piece is miranda divine. she joins me now, good to see you thank you for coming on. let's talk about twitter and the new ceo.
10:03 am
do you think he will let donald trump back on the site. there is a permanent ban on donald trump on twitter. >> i doubt it very much. i think it's a case of being careful what you wish for. jack dorsey presided over a twitter that has so much power that it was able to join with big tech to the rest of big tech, facebook and google and so one to ban the president of the united states to block incentive the new york post story about hunter biden's laptop before the election. they have put their thumb on the scale in a big way and i think jack dorsey is stepping aside will make no difference. in fact his replacement accused to be openly partisan in some sort of a radical he has tweeted in the past white racist and i
10:04 am
don't think that's a good environment for anybody, for america or the world because this is a global phenomenon. i think the fact that the new york post account was locked for two weeks before the election last year because twitter did not like the fact that we were running stories that were critical and contained critical evidence about one of the candidates. it tells you everything you need to know about the dangers of this power going to the big tech platform. >> it's much more than letting the former president back on. the new ceo of twitter says our role is not to be bound by the first amendment but preserve public conversation. the scarce commodity today is the tension. he very much sees the company in charge of monitoring how often and how what people see and like you just said that includes not
10:05 am
letting them see the hunter biden news. your new book is just about that, laptop from hell is out today. congratulations. >> the laptop from hell is a distillation of my deep dive into the laptop. thousands of documents and e-mails. we have reported starting last october and a lot of the stuff in there. there is so much more and it paints a picture of joe biden as someone has used his influences family not just in america, he began in his senate career but internationalized influence peddling program around the world. particularly that leads to national security problems for america. we are compromised with president biden when it comes to china, russia and most
10:06 am
importantly other countries around the world. we know the evidence is there and joe biden lied to the american people during the election campaign when he said nothing about hunters business dealings. we have evidence that he met with joe biden when he was vice president with the business partners from mexico, russia from china from kazakhstan, ukraine. he meant them in his vice presidential residence in washington, d.c. he met them in beijing and café milano and washington, d.c. he brought them onto air force to. there is no getting around that not only did he know about hunter biden and also his brother jim biden business dealings and influence peddling but he was also intimately involved.

lauren: the book laptop from hell, miranda divine, congratulations. >> thank you so much. lauren: let's go back to the market shelley scott. good to see you. the dow down half of 1%. there is the future of how our investment depend on our response to omicron.. is that what this is about or is there something more. >> is a worried responsible to administration is going to do about omicron. there is a lot more letters in the greek alphabet. we will have to get used to this every six months. our psyche has got to get over the fact that we will eradicate any type of virus. they will mutate and we have to mitigate. what i think the markets are worried about how to have the chair, the fed come out and say this is going to cause inflation and damp down the economy when we down that path before we had omicron break. that shakes everybody to the court.
10:08 am
that does not make any sense. this administration doesn't make any sense because her telling you not to believe your own eyes. i read an op-ed of things that are happening don't believe what you read, don't believe what you hear but now you're not allowed to believe what you see. this is a dry combination of all those things coming together. sooner or later the american investor is going to get over the fact that this will keep coming out every six months and we will have a much more normal trade rather than a knee-jerk reaction to what the administration might do to combat, were not quite sure but every new greek letter. >> we have the president say yesterday that were concerned, stay calm, there won't be any lockdowns. do you believe in? >> i don't think the market believes him we will have a vaccine mandates either. does anybody else not see what i'm seeing. the very fact that he holds a press conference means there is reason for concern with him.
10:09 am
i'm going to get up and stand up in front of the entire country and talk about this but don't be alarmed. it doesn't make any sense. if there is nothing to be alarmed about there would be a memo or a tweet. he's in front of a podium saying everybody is relaxed. doctor angelique down in south africa. we've now banned six or eight african countries from traveling to the states. they can fly to mexico and walk across the border by the way. when you see things like that that make no sense. that's what the market gets worried about all these administration policies that make no sense. that's what you see the market react the way it does is not really worried about omicron per se because we will have a lot more. it's just the reaction is what the market reacts to. lauren: scott somebody, thank you very much. >> rising oil prices are here to say. how high do they predict prices

10:19 am

10:22 am
he's never taken responsibility when it comes to afghanistan or the border that he won't visit and certainly not inflation. they pay people to stay out of the workforce. they cut off our energy supply which is causing gas prices to go up. they're ignoring the grocery stores are empty and small businesses are closing because they do not have the workers and it's definitely the middle of the country. joe biden this is because of you and your policies that are hurting this economy. trauma passed you a baton of a vaccine and a great economy in europe squandered that by not understanding how the economy works. on top of that they want to put more money into the economy instead of dealing with underlying issues that they are causing so many hardships for the american people. lauren: what you expect the president to say tomorrow when he gives a press conference on the supply chain conference. >> you to be a blame game, blame everybody else but him instead of saying let me talk to small business owners. i talked to restaurant owners in

>> part of what is going on is jack dorsey effectively reporting to the woke mob but one of their own in charge. that is what larry and sergey said, effectuating censorship, fired an employee who defected from the woke orthodoxy and that is what you see technocrats to because the founders originally had an original vision of a free and open dialogue that they completely abandoned due to the new culture and by putting in place the technocratic ceos were willing to bend the knee to the new orthodoxy. the ceo hasn't taken a job yet been making a general observation that seems to fit the bill. lauren: major platforms within reach, they might not have expected when founded years ago in silicon valley but here they are and they are businesses.

>> the pentagon warns china could build 1000 nuclear warheads by 2030. ric grenell joins us now. what if anything is president biden doing to prepare? >> he was recently revealed that he has been talking to individuals, experts in washington dc who believe that ultimately the united states should disarm nuclear weapons. that is frightening. this is just another example of how president biden of the past is not the president biden of today where progressives have taken over. he voted for the iraq war. this is not a guy who was for disarming us from nuclear
11:52 am
weapons but now that is his policy. he asked experts to write a report to give options for the future. you think about that this is a scary time because china is sensing the president biden is weak. we have seen that from their meeting in alaska where they lectured us on our soil on human rights and we see them climbing could back, clawing back to get into the arms race. something has got to be done about the rise of china and the emboldened nature of the chinese leaders under the biden administration. >> the question of did president biden get anywhere in his meeting with president xi i assume your answer is no because you have this report that they are advancing their capabilities. >> we don't have an honest assessment of what happened on
11:53 am
that call. you get what political people do which is leak little things and they are saying we didn't talk about nuclear weapons, we danced around the issue. my eight years at the un working with the chinese and the russians every single day, you've got to go directly in and confront the issues. lauren: sound like asking for a report slows the process. it would be reactionary rather than getting in front of the problem. >> that is what washington does. as long as you throw it to the ngos and next tuesday or week from tuesday or 3 weeks from tuesday we will have a discussion and we will talk about these issues they call that progress. i think when you schedule meetings that is a tactic, not progress. lauren: next one, israel is warning that iran is taking
11:54 am
steps to enrich uranium, 90% purity saying that the level needed to produce a nuclear weapon. biden seems almost too eager to rejoin the iranian nuclear talks. what's the best strategy in dealing with a nuclear iran? >> you hit it on the head, they are eager to reach a deal. the goal for the biden team is to have a deal. the opposite of america first is consensus with the rest of the world and that is what president biden seeks. he tries to make consensus with the europeans or consensus at the un and the security council, he makes that the
11:55 am
goal, consensus once in a while may happen but the goal should never be consensus. the goal is how do you make america safer and stronger and convince the other parties that when you make america stronger capitalism follows, rule of law follows, human rights follow so it is good for everybody when you put america first. instead the biden team has come in and they want an agreement with the europeans and others. let me be clear about agreeing with the europeans, the germans are gracing to normalize trade with iran. when i was there as us ambassador i saw all the german companies doing business there and coming into my office to try to convince me they are not so bad and we should trade with them. they have this idea of trading with iran, to convince of them that they need to come into the fold of the international community. they will never do that. >> sanctions are hurting them. thanks.
