"the story" continues. we look forward to seeing you back here today at 3:00. "your world" with neil cavuto and his awesome interview with jeff bezos is coming up ahead and we'll see the market close. have a great day, everybody. >> neil: billionaires in space. 24 hours from now, jeff bezos will be launches to the heavens, albeit briefly. but not before talking to us. and responding to a zinger from no less than elon musk. >> you know, elon musk retweeted a meme about your space flight making fun of you for only touching the edge of space. his rockets can orbit the earth at 17,000 miles per hour.
your can't. be -- is it a just a little competitive jousting back and forth? what did you think of that? you're going to hear what jeff bezos has to say about that. i'm neil cavuto. this is "your world." before he goes out of this world for a few minutes, he might want the reprieve of getting away from a market sell-off, the likes of which we have not seen this year, all because we have a serious case of pandemic blues and concern that maybe some awful stuff, restrictions and all the stuff associated with it could be happening again. the l.a. county indoor mask mandate. a half a dozen athletes have tested positive for covid-19. two more texas democrats that are testing right now positive for covid in case you're counting. the story about vice president
harris that met with these guys going to walter reed on a routine check upjust yesterday to see if maybe there's any issue with her. apparently not. she tested nothingive. all of this at a time the world is gripped with fears that it's spreading more there than any of these actions here. the cdc just raising its warning for travelers to the united kingdom to a level 4 that is the highest level that you can go with the advice being if you don't have to go, maybe don't. let's go to christine coleman on this. it was whipsawing stocks. i can understand them being afraid. you can call into question the economic recovery but it goes further than that. >> yeah a lot going on concerning covid right now. the cdc is urging people not to travel to the u.k. or to make sure they're fully vaccinated if they have to go. this has some cities and counties put additional covid guidelines in place.
l.a. county has a new mask mandate regardless of your vaccination status citing the surges. the new mask mandate is getting a lot of push:back since it does not align with the cdc guidance. controversy swirling over the texas lawmakers that fled the state to avoid voting on election reform. five vaccinated members have tested positive for covid. v.p. kamala harris that met with the delegation at this event tuesday went to walter reed military hospital yesterday for what the white house is calling a routine doctor's appointment. no other information was released. a v.p. spokesperson says that harris was not in close contact with the lawmakers that came down with the virus. as for sports, two members of the u.s. olympic team have recently tested positive for covid including coco gauff and
tarah acker. both will side out. they were two of 55 people connected to the olympics including athletes and officials that have tested positive for covid since july 1. neil? >> neil: thanks very much. so how dangerous is this? keep in mind these cases in total numbers are still really small, particularly in this country. they're really targeted at the 99% in that number who have not been vaccinated. it's a good remainder from dr. christopher murray from the institute of health metrics and evaluation. doctor, good to have you. the message is the vulnerable population is those that vice president been vaccinated, right? >> absolutely. those that haven't gotten one of the effective vaccines are madoff likely to get infected. we're seeing some infections even in those that are vaccinated. because the delta variant is so
transmissable. >> neil: now, the danger with the delta variant, because it seems to be morphing into something, is there any risk or fear, doctor, that these existing vaccines will not be able to keep up with those changes and some of these other variants popping up? >> the great news about the mrna technology is that both moderna and pfizer feel like they can keep ahead of the variants as they emerge. they can tweak the vaccine. people can get a booster and keep immunity levels up high. so there isn't really a huge risk of a lot of deaths and hospitalizations in those that were vaccinated, but there can be a lot of transmission of the infection. if you're vaccinated, they'll be mild cases. >> neil: you hear what is going on in l.a. county and cities exploring a again imposing restrictions, mandates, all of
that stuff. extending it to those that have already been vaccinated as well. in l.a. county as i'm sure you're aware, requiring masks whether you had the shot or not. what do you think of that? >> you know, it's a sensible strategy when things get out of control like we're seeing in arkansas, missouri, where you're seeing big increases in cases. because of -- it makes sense to try to cut down transmissions so the unvaccinated don't start to die. so that seems a reasonable strategy. i think as we go later in the year, people that also, you mow, may have some comorbidities, if they're vaccinated, they'll probably want to mask up even if there's a lot of transmission in their community. >> neil: there's also talk that this pushes into the fall, slowing things down. even the recovery, which we'll
explore in a second, will also slow down. are we all getting ahead of ourselves? >> you know, in our models, we see the summer surge from the delta variant being pretty modest. as we head into the fall and winter, it could well get worse. the reason is that most people are not masked up, not being cautious anymore. so we should expect more transmission against the unvaccinated. to some extent the vaccinated than we had last time around. so we expect things to get worse in the winter but nothing like we had last winter because of the vaccines. >> martha: hope you're right, dr. christopher. much appreciated. let's go to charles payne on this. he has an upcoming special, from the military to the marketplace.
i played with g.i. joes as a kid. looking at this market reaction, it's not about inflation concerns. it's about maybe this great boom out of the pandemic could slow and big populated areas like los angeles counties reverse, right? >> that was the big trigger. the flame thrower was my favorite green army man. it's one of those things, neil, where you see the headlines starting about three weeks ago. headline here, headline there about the delta variant. you start to hear it more and more on the news. as investors, you start to sense. the idea with investing in the market is always a sort of sense of where the economy is going. that's what the market reflects. it reflects the anxiety of maybe a potential overreaction. l.a. county being a prime
example. your interview prior to this, they talked about areas where there were high incidents of the delta variant. i don't know that that is l.a. county. these major places, the major population centers, california, new york, illinois, a lot of people believe that they were 2 hand-fisted that too many small businesses went out of business and too many people lost their job. nobody wants to go through that. we want to be cautious but not to the point to derail the economy that is the message that the market sent everyone today. >> neil: yeah, we're very slow to accept visiting those from europe, a warning from the cdc. if we had our choice, yes would cool it doing to the united kingdom. it's the highest category risk. people hear that and they get anxious. do they retrench to the point that you jeopardize not the entire recovery but the strength
we've been seeing. >> you can certainly stall it. the only thing that would derail it are government mandates. people are used to going out, going to the mall to a degree and the isolation and the damage that it's caused. it would take governments even today with the cdc to force against going to the u.k. the u.k. is resisting as much as possible to shut down their economy like last year. nobody wants to see that. the one thing we haven't talked about is the hospitalizations and deaths. wall street will zero in on that and keep our fingers crossed that the needle doesn't move on that. if that doesn't happen, you'll see the markets say okay a sigh of relief that while highly trans missable, if it's not as deadly, maybe we won't get the same sort of restrictions and
lockdowns. >> neil: i hear you. you think about it. we're both in the numbers business. when you hear the percentages, they're low levels coming off extremely low levels. you mentioned hospitalizations and deaths. very low overall. i guess what i'm asking as we go forward here without getting wonky, the bond market has seen yields drop a lot today. normally that's a sign that the inflation that we've talked about, that wasn't the worry. the worry, just today, that this could slow the economy down. you don't seem to think that that will happen. >> i don't think it will happen. i hope it doesn't happen. the bond market, two months now, it's been saying we need to focus on next year. we're going to have a big inflation issue this summer. next year when the federal money runs out, we'll do with a slower
economy. nobody is paying attention to that. right now we're dealing with inflation. we would rather have inflation in an open company than stag inflation in a closed economy. we'll see. >> neil: good point. thanks, charles. remember the inflation? back to the carter years. the economy is dealing with run-away run-ups so much so that things slow down to the point that you have inflation and you have a slowing economy. all right. probably a good thing that in this environment of things getting worse and the fact that he lost $12 billion on paper today, it's a good thing that jeff bezos has left day to day running of amazon. still by far the world's richest man. for a few brief minutes in space he can forget it all. up next, the man and the crew behind the billionaire's rush to

have gotten off the moon to go home without them. how much did that weigh on you as you were circling? >> weighed on my mind a lot. it was an unheroic role. don't think we ought to be called heros. i object to being called a hero. >> you know, the great thing about my job, i get to talk to heros like that. i talked to the apollo astronauts in 2004. that was for the ages. there's a within why jeff bezos is blasting off from texas tomorrow. it's the 52nd anniversary of man landing on the moon. doesn't jeff flock know it. he's in van horn, texas. hey, jeff. >> i did watch that one, neil. i was a kid. maybe you were little, too. it's a treat to see this tomorrow here in the 80,000 acres that jeff bezos owns behind me, launch site 1 is
where this will take off. that little capsule, that's where they'll be. yeah, we call them heros? i don't know that is a term that really applies. these are very fortunate people that will get to look back at effort through the huge windows in this capsule. they tested it 15 times without people in it. it has performed flawlessly and they home that it will do that again. jeff bezos made it all happen. he says, neil, as he told you, i know exclusively, earlier today, that this is all about the future. it's about making enough money to advance the technology and get america and the world in to space, maybe colonizing space. we need big thinkers like that. we'll see tomorrow. hope the weather holds. it's a stormy day today in the desert. tomorrow the forecast is for better times. we'll be here live, neil.
>> neil: that is a cool assignment. you deserve that. you've covered so many big events. jeff flock on that. think about it. this crew and this mission say bezos is late to the party, he was the earliest one at the party with this rocket-building company and trying to do it right. 15 unmanned tries to make sure that the first man try today will go off without a hitch. that doesn't mean that they don't know what the pressures are like. take a look. congratulations to you. jeff, joining you on this journey are the oldest and youngest human beings to go into space and your brother, a lot of pressure. i know you've had 15 successful automated flights. this is the first one with human
beings. are you a tad anxious? >> i'm not. i'm excited but not anxious. we'll see strapped in the seat. we're ready. the team is amazing. i feel good about it and my fellow crew feels good. >> neil: elon musk made fun of you for only touching the edge of space. he reminds folks that his rockets can orbit the earth at 17,000 miles per hour. yours can't. not quite whoever it is, 2,300 miles per hour. is it just a little competitive jousting back and forth? what did you make of that? >> well, it's correct. what we're doing with what alan shepherd did. it's a suborbitable flight.
this is a tourism mission. it's very important. it lets us practice and will let more people get up in to space. that practice is what will allow us to build the infrastructure to let the next generations of people really do amazing things in space. maybe that will be for our young friend, oliver here, 18 years old. he might be the next gender raise. maybe he will found a space company that takes the infrastructure we built and rest on top of that. >> neil: congratulations, oliver, being the youngest human being in space. i'm curious. your dad was among the original bidders for a seat. was it always understood that he was saving it for you? can you tell us what was going on there? >> i think he's just afraid of heights. [laughter]
no, no, i've been super excited about space. i asked him and he's like why not? here i am. worked out good for me. >> neil: i bet. jeff, you know, if you don't mind i'm going back. it's a 11-minute flight. so for a paying customer, $28 million. that worked out $2.8 million a minute or what i spent on amazon in a typical year. so curious -- i'm sure the price has come down. but that's a lot of money. how soon do you think that paying customers will be paying less than that? >> over the coupling years, we hope to drive the price down. $28 million is a special price because money is being donated to charity and it's also for the first seat. it's a special price. even so, part -- the paint of this over time with practice to drive down that cost.
that's what happens with commercial air travel. you have to start somewhere and work hard on getting it more efficient and less expensive. >> neil: all right. the guy that cancelled out because of his scheduling conflict, who could have a scheduling conflict that would rival going into space with you? did he have a dentist -- >> somebody that could afford to pay $28 million for a flight could have that scheduling conflict. >> neil: you're right. a stupid question. if you don't mind, you've been waiting a long time for this day. everyone says that you're more up to this flight than those folks around you. a long time coming. >> we can confirm that. >> neil: and you know, i'm thinking, you were testing to be the first woman in space.
that program was shelved. is the wait worth it? >> yes. no, it's disappointed in 40 years of it but now i'm going up with the best team ever. we're going to show the world what can be done in space and how we can act and think and how we want to bring things back to people. >> wally, back in the 60s when wally was in the mercury 13, she outperformed the men. we can confirm here she can outrun all of us. she's incredible and also a role model for resilience. she's incredible. we are in love with her. >> thank you. >> neil: congratulations to all of you. mark, you're the brother. your brother came to you and said i want to go up in space with you. did you ever think for a nano
second, you know, have a couple more flights before i consider that. >> no, that didn't occur to me. if he was just sending me, i might be concerned. he's going, too. look, i was incredibly excited. it's an honor toe be there to represent our mom and dad and our sister, christina and support jeff in the realization of a life long dream. it's a thrill. we've had a lot of adventures together. i can't wait for the next one. it's going to be unbelievable. >> mark has been a part of the blue origin program from the very beginning and a huge contributor and a big contributor for my whole life. i couldn't have a better person to fly with me. i'm so excited. thank you, brother. >> neil: beautiful. congratulations, guys. best of luck today. godspeed. >> thank you, neil. >> thank you.
>> neil: all right. you heard reference to shepherd. that's what it's called after alan shepherd. he flew in 1961 and would pave the way for john glenn's orbital flight that established our beechhead that were ahead of the russians. it began with one man and a risky sub orbital flight. alan shepherd, cool couple burr through it all. take a look back. >> left as near perfect as humans can make it. the rocket rips off into space with alan shepherd. now you'll see pictures never before seen by mortal eyes. the first film of a human flight
in space. the floating strap showing his state of weightlessness. >> neil: you know, i've watched that a number of times. i always listen to the announcer. here he is. but that was history. that was unprecedented. we've had some practice. we go way, way far to the international space station. astronauts stay for months at a time. jose hernandez knows what i'm talking about. former nasa astronaut. jose, thanks for coming. i wonder from your perspective, the education, the training and all the stuff going with it. going forward, plunk the money down and come on board. what do you think of that? >> neil, i think any time you've
got other entities other than nasa, here three viable companies providing access to space, it's a good thing. any time we invest in space exploration and make it available to the civilians, it's great. albeit right now it's very expensive and will continue to do so, but it's like early aviation. that was very expensive. as time went on, they found ways of making it cheaper. so ultimately a middle class person will be able to afford the luxury of experiencing weightlessness and getting the orbital perspective that we talk about. >> neil: the other thing i can't let go, the dude that stopped and turned down the flight because he had a scheduling conflicts. what the heck? what do you think of that? >> oh, man, i don't know what could be more important --
>> neil: i have this molar. i have to get it taken care of. >> unless he was in pain and he couldn't do it. it's like let's reschedule for tomorrow. >> neil: i got you. jose, there's no virtually no training for these missions. there wasn't with what we saw with richard branson. doesn't seem to be here outside of checking out the uniform, making sure it fits. they have no control over the flight itself. all of these cases. does that concern you at all? >> neil, it's a new era of space travel. they had a total of 14 hours of training which pales in comparison to us having -- we had to have two years of basic training and 18 months for a specific space shuttle flight for training for that. so it pales in comparison,
again, technology has improved so much. it will be closely autonomous. there's not a pilot on board. it's four passengers and it's all controlled by the computer. it's amazing. that's the right thing to do. they have proven it through the 15 previous flights that it works. now they'll prove it with humans on board. what better than having the former ceo or the owner of blue origin to be a part of the mission. >> neil: i like it because you have to do zero physical training. i could stumble on like this and have a flight and not have to do all the grueling things you did. it's something to behold. thanks very much. >> thank you, neil. we'll be looking forward to it tomorrow morning. >> neil: indeed. to put this in perspective, a lot of these billionaires have the money.
think of this though. to a man, whether it's jeff bezos or branson or musk, i can't tell you much like in the early days of getting the companies off the ground how they were dismissed and laughed at, told no and can't and this is ridiculous. they never gave up. they have their rivalries and personalities and maybe some jousting back and forth. but these guys have one thing in common. they don't understand the word "can't." something great about that. more after this. millions of vulnerable americans struggle to get reliable transportation to their medical appointments. that's why i started medhaul. citi launched the impact fund to invest in both women and entrepreneurs of color like me, so i can realize my vision and give everything i've got to my company, and my community. i got you.
big promises. small promises. cuddly shaped promises. each with a time and a place they've been promised to be. and the people of old dominion never turn away a promise. or over promise. or make an empty promise. we keep them. a promise is everything to old dominion, because it means everything to you. (upbeat pop music in background throughout) as i observe investors balance risk and reward, i see one element securing portfolios, time after time. gold. your strategic advantage.
>> neil: did the president just pull an about face on the criticism of facebook regarding misinformation as they see it generating from the social media giants about vaccines? peter doocy now with more on all of that. peter, what's going on here? >> neil, the president told us friday that he thinks facebook is killing people by not patrolling misinformation on their platform. but today that position softened up a little bit. >> facebook isn't killing people. the 12 people that are out there giving misinformation. anyone listening to it is getting hurt by it. it's killing people. it's bad information. >> a facebook official says don't blame them for people not getting vaccinated. they went through the data about the platform around report back. 85% of facebook users have been or want to be vaccinated against covid-19. president biden's goal was for 70% of americans to be
vaccinated by july fourth. facebook is not the reason this goal was missed. republicans have some other ideas. >> leftists all think if their goal doesn't get hit, it's somebody else's fault. news flash. stop throwing it in people's faces. people typically have like a revolt when somebody tells them what to do. if you want people to get investigated, provide the information, step back and let adults manage their own lives. >> the president warned today about the dangers of that delta variant. so i asked the press secretary, jen psaki, if he would ever consider calling former president trump to do a pro vaccine psa. she didn't say no but she didn't think that collaboration should have an embroidered invitation. >> neil: what if it's not i'm broadered?
like scratched out on a card? >> like an e-vite. >> neil: thanks, peter. misinformation is really in the eye of the beholder. or is it a good lawyer? we have a cracker jack one after this. what do we want for dinner? burger... i want a sugar cookie... wait... i want a bucket of chicken... i want... ♪♪ it's the easiest because it's the cheesiest. kraft. for the win win. you've been taking mental health meds, and your mind is finally in a better place. except now you have uncontrollable body movements called tardive dyskinesia - td. and it can seem like that's all people see. some meds for mental health can cause abnormal dopamine

>> neil: all right. so as we told you earlier, the administration dialling back the charges the president made against social media particularly facebook, that putting misinformation out there on the danger of the vaccines is tantamount to killing people. the legal back and forth continues as to what is misinformation and what is the social media company's responsibility like a facebook. let's go to andy mccarthy. andy, this is an always evolving subject. but where is this leading facebook, let's say? >> i think things have turned on
their head, neil. the government is not supposed to call out the media or the social media for misinformation. it's the other way around. the biden administration really doesn't have clean hands here because the biden campaign led by, for example, kamala harris did everything that they could to talk down the vaccines as something that wasn't trustworthy under trump or having been developed under trump. since then, you know, they haven't gotten the emergency authorization lifted. so people have to be advised of what the risks are. and they've done -- they're pushing these vaccine mandates again in democrat strong holds like los angeles and new york, new york city which only tells people if you get vaccinated, you'll be under all the same mandates anyhow. so i think before he goes after facebook, he would be
well-advised to, you know, maybe look at his own house and see what they're doing and their messaging that has depressed what ought to be people's enthusiasm to take advantage of these vaccines. >> neil: if he had his brothers, they would push for mandatory vaccinations. that's a problem there. but their argument is the spikes in cases and everything else is directly in proportion to people not getting vaccinated. up to a third of americans refuse to. now, you can't force the issue. can you if it spirals here, let's say as it is places like asia and elsewhere and even in britain where they are not imposing restrictions even as cases spike and even as the cdc is saying because they're doing that, it is a -- the highest
risk for travelers to the united kingdom. what do you do? >> i think they're going to have a lot of latitude as far as mandating vaccines are concerned. i would question whether that is the best approach. i think the best approach especially in a free society where we have a first amendment and our theory that we proceed on is in the end, good information will out way and chase out bad information. you're likely to get a lot more vaccine compliance about a lot more people submitting to it if they're convinced about what the merits of it are rather than heavy-handed approach. i think that could be very counter productive. before we started to speak, i was just looking at an opinion by a federal judge in indiana who refused to give the students at indiana university the injunction that they were looking for to get out of the vaccine mandate.
it's a very thoughtful been by a trump appointed judge who says basically there's supreme court precedent that goes back more than a century that says that the government has the power to mandate vaccines in connection with a situation where you're trying to fight off a deadly pandemic. so based on that precedent unless the supreme court changes it, there's good reason to think the government at the state level and the federal level will have a lot of leeway here. >> neil: yeah, depends on the severity. if it's a pole you situation in the 20s and 30s versus this. it's a crap shoot. thanks, andy. even i understand that. thanks for that. all right. we have a lot -- you think this is going to be a big hot political issue, you might be looking at the wrong one. that one that could hurt democrats is far more expensive a lot more expensive after this.

♪ ♪ >> neil: democrats are saying the benefit of all of this spending will door whatever inflation we are seeing. republicans are saying the inflation we will be seeing will ruin whatever gains they are getting paid time to hash that out with lee carter, jessica tarlov, democratic strategist, fox news contributor. that's the argument, right? it's well worth it, crisis might go up, but it's more than compensated for the gains. right? sticker that's always what the argument is going back to what fdr did, that he said he's modeling his presidency after, because that's the decisive action we need after the last 18 months we had.
i wish we were having a discussion on the different day than today when obviously inflation has been so negatively affecting the market, and i'm at a bit of a disadvantage here, but i think if you look at public opinion, you look at the kind of infrastructure, human and technical, that we'll be getting out of this, that the american people will be happy and the economy isn't highly durable and will certainly survive this. >> neil: the one thing i know covering this stuff, they are on the left or the right, inflation israeli transitory. it sticks around a while, sort of like me when i visit someone's house and ordering pay-per-view movies, reading their fridge. i don't leave. [laughter] i'm wondering if that's what we're looking at here, and that should be a big way for democrats. what you think? >> i think that's a bigger issue right now. biden and even janet yellen are trying to say it's temporary inflation, just a few months, we'll get through it, we're going to get to the other side. it likely isn't going to be a short period of inflation. rather, it's going to be more prolonged. i think they'll have a
credibility problem. because of that promise, and the expectation on the other side, i think people will expect to start feeling better. right now people are already starting to feel the impact of inflation. you've got 70% of folks saying they feel the impact of grocery prices going up, 68% of people say they feel the impact of gas prices going up. so you have that kind of an impact on your wallet, and that people notice that on their day-to-day lives. if you promise a short term pain for a longer-term gain, they're going to have to deliver on that or they're going to have a problem, i think, in the next couple of years when it comes time to vote. >> neil: you know, i don't blame this inflation on the president, per se. we are coming off a very slow, almost stopped economy. obviously you pick from that, you see an increase in activity. i do know this, you can put more salt in the wounds here. in other words, you can start with this spending that will propel that and put it on steroids. this country does have a history of doing that sort of thing,
too. so i'm just wondering how the democrats you've talked to are playing that out. >> everyone thinking about the midterm elections, which are right around the corner, because we live in a perpetual cycle of running for office and fund-raising and pitching everybody. >> neil: we do. >> that's a concern especially for democrats and republicans, because republicans sign onto a bipartisan infrastructure bill, then they own this, as well. whereas they can't just say it's the democrats' fault, and the democrats have the $1.9 trillion american rescue plan, which is hugely popular. and we're both sitting there with this infrastructure pile in our lab saying, no inflation, it's this guy's fault! i think that's top of mind for people as we head toward november 2022. it's not that far away. >> neil: real quickly, republicans shouldn't judge anyone on spending. obviously it's picked up the pace, but it's a bipartisan bid. i'm just wondering how it does sort out. average americans, if they keep
seeing these high prices, they're going to fret, right? >> i think it's going to have an impact. even if it is a bipartisan plan, i think it is still the democrats' plan and then left on that when it comes time for the midterms. see seven ladies, thank you both very much. we can just join bezos in that racket and say the hill with it, and then realize it's only 11 minutes. tomorrow. ♪ ♪ >> greg: i'm greg gutfeld along with dagen mcdowell, richard fowler, lawrence jones, and ainsley. ♪ ♪ check this, democrats voting stunt now turning into a super spreader tour. sounds like fun. but the media is no way to be found. there's no widespread outrage, condemnation, or even claims these democrats are going to slaughter americans. texas state lawmakers, five of them so far, have
