tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  November 22, 2021 1:00pm-2:00pm PST

1:00 pm
how could anyone say beyond a reasonable doubt -- >> martha: that's kevin gough, roddy bryan's attorney. that's the story for november 22. here's "your world" with neil cavuto. >> this is the video that i shot here. it's surreal to watch. i couldn't believe it was happening. with us hard to watch for sure. not something you want to see again. >> hard to watch indeed. we're live in waukesha, wisconsin where the suspect in that horrific parade crash is facing intentional homicide charges. we should warn you, some of the scenes are graphic. this was the scene sunday afternoon when the driver of a red s.u.v. plowed into a parade in wisconsin killing five and
1:01 pm
injuring 48. the s.u.v. struck those marching in the parade and those on the sideline. police have identified the suspect as darrell brooks. he has been re -- he had been released on bail prior to the incident. police say he was involved in a domestic dispute prior to the crash. i'm charles payne in for neil cavuto. we begin in waukesha with grady trimble. grady? >> police say darrell brooks acted alone and there's no indication the attack was terrorism related. they say moments before brooks intentionally ploughed through the parade route, he said there's school bands and other community groups. five people were killed and 48 more people were injured including 18 children. the youngest just three years
1:02 pm
old. >> some of our first responders were there with our families. they left their families to treat people. >> brooks is expected to be charged with five counts of intentional homicide. he has a lengthy criminal history. he posted a $1,000 bail just days ago after allegedly running a woman over in another domestic dispute. the district attorney's office admits that bail was inappropriately low. back here live, main street has been reopened today. classes for all schools in waukesha cancelled tomorrow and there's a prayer vigil set to start in a couple hours. charles? >> thanks, grady. the suspect, darrell brooks, has a lengthy rap sheet and was just released on bail prior to the
1:03 pm
s.u.v. plowing into the crowd what are investigators doing right now? want to ask chief daniel walinski. chief, where do we begin? walk us through now the process of the charges, evaluating it all and considering the backdrop here, this man just released on bail november 11th for $1,000. a very similar situation. the bail prior to that was $10,000. for some reason, they lowered it. your thoughts and where we are with the investigation. >> charles, we should not be talking about him being involved in another domestic event that led to him fleeing and engaging in this horrific attack on the community in wisconsin. has to be two investigations that occur here. one documenting exactly what happened, finding out if there's any previous thoughts, search warrants on his computer, phones to see if he had known about the
1:04 pm
parade or thought about it or engaged in another domestic assault and decided to engage law enforcement in a highly dangerous situation where law enforcement responds with deadly force and a suicide by cop situation. it's clear there was a district attack on the folks in the parade route. it was unnecessary. the original situation where his domestic relation was run over and tire marks were found on her leg, he should have been held in custody. if he was released, should have been all kinds of probation checking in, gps location and he shouldn't have been allowed to reoffend again. so they have to document what happened that day and put the evidence together to hold them accountable for yesterday's attack. the same time, we have to look at how the system failed the community and allowed this individual to be behind the
1:05 pm
wheel of a vehicle that he could mow down people that were trying to enyou a holiday celebration. >> it's heart breaking, five deaths, four woman, one man. 18 children. ten times he's had run-ins with the law since nine 89. strangulation and suffocation. substantial battery with the intent to badly harm. it's just one of these things that shocks the nation to believe that our system will protect us from these sort of repeat offenders over and over again. i hear what you're saying with respect to separating this two cases. what would be the difference? you know, you talked about him checking his searches and whether it was intentional or not. if it was spur of the moment, it's a heinous crime. what would be the difference with respect to the charges and ultimately the public never
1:06 pm
having to deal with him again? >> if the parade ramming was intentional, that could make at this time highest level of homicide that occur. even there, we might have that here. we want to find out if we can what was going on in the background behind. the same time we need to figure out how he slipped through the cracks. all the his why we've seen so far is combative, resisting arrest. that should tell a prosecutor that this person doesn't belong to be on the streets of wisconsin and needs the be held in custody. the signs were there. unfortunately we've had a grounds swell to get rid of people held in bail. we want to get rid and not pros cues crimes. domestic violence is a violent crime by individuals who are, you know, probably going to take it to the next level if they have to engage in law enforcement.
1:07 pm
the victim was in danger. the entire community was in danger. >> there's been a big push back against law enforcement, bail, bail reform and those sort of things. you have to wonder when does the sympathy go to the general public, when does the sympathy go for people that have been involved in domestic disputes whether it was him or other offenders. this is not one offense. it's shocking, mind boggling that we don't have a wake-up call to push back and keep the nation safe. this is -- just one final thing. the band had just started to play jingle bells when this s.u.v. plowed them down. it's heart breaking. thanks, chief. >> thanks, charles. >> inflation weighing heavy on americans with consumers paying for more about everything. is it time for the president to start acting? and back-to-back flash mop lootings in california raising

>> charles: president biden departing for fort bragg this afternoon. he's set to address inflation, now at the highest level since 1992. a sign that the white house is getting concerned about price spikes ahead of the holidays. franchesca is chambers here. gop strategist nick adams and laura fink. is it time for the administration to worry about inflation? >> well, it's think it's been a concern for some time. we know that inflation is open. we know that profit margins are up with the biggest u.s. companies raking in the biggest profit margins since 2019. so the biden administration will focus on the lack of competition in the marketplace. things like meat processing. that's why poultry and beef and pork are up. it's because there's a bottle
1:13 pm
neck and a lack of competition. so addressing that and making the american public aware that often it's the companies that are raking in that dollar and they're making money significantly above and beyond. is it pandemic profiteering? that's the question. >> charles: sounds like a speech that the communist leader of china just gave a couple weeks ago. >> should we profiteer? should with -- >> absolute -- >> you called me a communist. i want to defend myself. >> charles: president xi made the same thing, comments -- >> competition -- >> charles: let me -- >> competition is important. >> charles: nick, listen, inflation has a lot of sources. we know that. some are saying the war on oil is the primary reason.
1:14 pm
the day that president biden was elected, the market went up. some are saying these are restrictive practices in california. you can't get a trucker in california. there's a lot of reasons for this happening including trillions being poured into the economy. that is inflation 101. too much money chasing too few goods. nick, you have the floor. >> this is why i love you, charles. you're a capitalist to the core. so am i. that's what america runs on. joe biden is going to be eating his weight in turkey and pie and americans all over the country are struggle to make ends meet because of rapid inflation. heating bills, they've gone up. electricity bills, they've gone up. paying for gas at the pump has gone up. everything has gone up significantly. it's because joe biden's economy is all about two things, spending money and printing money. that's what all the communists
1:15 pm
and socialists and people that don't understand how to make money, they're the ones that need to work it out. that's how it works. that's why america has been successful. >> charles: let's bring in the level-headed franchesca here. here's the thing. i think this administration has made some really bad gambets in terms of finger pointing from the afghanistan withdrawal to the vaccination, fumbling that and the mandates. and i think -- listen, the white house is looking at the poll numbers. if you look at gallop's right now, we're in tremendous economic anxiety. it's dangerous to see this is all on business. should they take aany account ability tomorrow? do you expect that? >> the white house is also -- has anxiety over covid-19 and where we are now versus where the white house has hoped that the country would be on vaccinations and on other aspects of covid-19, charles. so when you talk about inflation and what we can expect tomorrow,
1:16 pm
the recent messaging that we've heard from this white house has essentially been that inflation isn't as bad as americans perceive it to be. the administration is arguing that turkeys will cost american families a dollar more. overall, the items that you expect for the thanksgiving meal is about a 5% increase in cost. that's the number that they're providing than it was last year. so even though that the feeling of inflation, the expensiveness of goods might feel more, they're trying to tell americans, it's not really as bad as you perceive it to be and i expect to hear more talk like that tomorrow. >> charles: that would be dangerous, to tell people listen, you know, you're walking out of the store with less stuff, fewer bags than you normally would. don't worry. it's just your imagination. is there any chance that might president biden will say there's something that could have been
1:17 pm
done here or the build back better program, another couple trillion, that they would like to get through? >> well, i agree, charles, that biden is coming on the heels of a couple of legislative successes. on monday, passing and signing into law the infrastructure bill, historic. something that previous administrations could not get done. and then we see the build back better plan moving to the senate friday. that's really important. and i think -- yeah, he will address inflation and talk about the root causes and talk about the through-put at ports and the fact that it looks like we reached the peak and coming down from here. so with confidence, americans can look not only at their disposable income is up 2% including inflation, but the pandemic constraints are easing. that's leadership president biden can take credit for. >> charles: the data that i look at and i study this, is a real wages are down in all but two of the months this year when you add in inflation. but i'll give you -- i'll let
1:18 pm
you from here, what do republicans say at this point, nick? do they offer any alternative solutions or just watch this infold? >> well, charles, look, it's very clear that there's very significant buyer's remorse, this is jimmy carter 2.0. republicans have seen this play out before. it's awful what's going on, that americans are having to suffer the way that they're having to suffer. we saw what happened in virginia and new jersey and other places around the country and will be on steroids in 2002. democrats are facing electoral annihilation. and it's because of this inflation, it's because of this economic mismanagement. democrats just do not understand money or the economy. you have more money when there's republicans in government. >> franchesca -- >> even laura believes.
1:19 pm
>> in i'm laughing at you. >> charles: we got the renomination of jerome peel. progresses wanted brainard. joe manchin is the key right now. your thoughts on that and what it does for the biden agenda? >> well, when you talk about joe manchin and senator sinema being key here, it's difficult. it's not impossible for the president to get much done on his agenda if he doesn't have those two senators on board. that would apply to any nomination but also to anything else the president would want to get done including his social spending deal that they're trying to get through in the senate. you talked about what else we could do as we heard from the president with regards to inflation. i think we'll hear from him on the supply chain issues and what
1:20 pm
the administration has done to ease those also. >> charles: thanks, panel. meanwhile, the tsa vaccine mandate goes into effect tomorrow. this as a busy holiday travel season takes off. will staffing issues leave airports backed up? first, president biden tapping jerome powell for a second term. we go deeper to what it means for your wallet next. wow... that's so nice! the gift of ancestry®... is a walk through your history. do you remember who this is? where the more you discover... wow! ...the more you come together. i can see... the nose... this holiday, give the gift of family. give the gift of ancestry®.

ordinary tissues burn when theo blows. so dad bought puffs plus lotion, and rescued his nose. with up to 50% more lotion puffs bring soothing softness and relief. a nose in need deserves puffs indeed. >> charles: president biden tapping jerome powell to stay as the head of the federal reserve. peter doocy at the white house with the latest. >> in renominating powell, the president reminded people that the last time he faced senate
1:25 pm
confirmation, he cleared with 84 votes in the senate. but notably kamala harris, then the senator from california, i wasn't one of them. the president still sees powell as key to stability at a time when inflation is a growing concern. but that's not all. it's not just commission. the president also thinks the new federal reserve chairman, should he get approved again is to help with climate change. >> we have to make sure we can withstand climate change and prepare to transition to clean energy. the fed has to be a leader globally. >> the president is trying to legislation climate change away with his build back better social spending plan. some progressives are nervous it will get stripped of critical priorities from the progresses, but republicans say it will make inflation hurt as high prices are already hurting. >> no, bill, they don't have a
1:26 pm
handle on it. the conversations in thanksgiving will show how much more expensive the dinner was this year and how storms are having to limiting purchases and how much gas cost. the inflation the democrats have unleashed the large and growing larger. this bill by spending trillions and encouraging people not to work is only going to make it worse. >> we just saw the president boarding marine one. he didn't take any questions on his way to a thanksgiving event at fort bragg, north carolina. charles? >> charles: thanks, peter. so with prices spikes, should jerome powell focus on inflation? ann berry weighs in now. you know, the fed has a duel mandate. inflation on one hand, full employment on the other. you and i both know jerome pow has wanted to be accommodative,
1:27 pm
keep things going. inflation has been a beast and as hid hint employment but many believe we're in a crisis now and many believe he has to step up. >> he has to step up. we've seen tapering stocks this month. there's broad anticipation that interest rates will tick back up perhaps at the back end of last year. the key is, the employment is still not over. we're still missing several many individuals from the labor force. in jay powell figures out why that is, there's this tension between inflation and getting full employment back. >> charles: what is interesting is that a lot of folks thought brainard would get the job because of her focus on tamping down on banks and as a progressive someone that would want to make climate change a de facto -- another mandate for
1:28 pm
the federal reserve. how surprised for you when the satellite president biden suggested that would be a mandate hundred dollars powell fed? >> it's interesting. a couple of things. she's a dove. the fact that she wasn't appointed came as a relief for folks that were worried that there would be low interest rates and continuing to stoke this concern about inflation. so there's a piece of that. one thing that president biden does, that the market needs continuity right now. a lot of uncertainty, whether it's the covid outbreaks, getting a handle on the supply chain, understanding this unemployment mystery and having a change at the helm of the fact. the market is breathing a sigh of relife. >> charles: we had a big move up and selling off. here's the thing. the chief economist at the labor
1:29 pm
department took a shot across the bough at the federal reserve saying we want you the keep pumping. don't hit the brakes because we care about inflation and employment. it's odd. if they would pull back on the free money, they would get people to go to work and inflation would come down. needless to say, this administration is pretty clear when it comes to printing money. they want to see jay powell press the medal, continue to keep money out there, free money out there and do you think even though he will have some sort of freedom he won't have the pressure of worrying about be renominated again that he will feel beholden to keep doing that as much as possible? >> i don't think so. one thing i'll say as the jay powell plot point, throughout the last several years, he's been -- proven himself to be immune to political pressure. we saw under the trump administration a lot of pressure put on jay powell and he didn't
1:30 pm
yield. i don't think he will to this administration. the fact is that president biden is trying to look at oil reserves, whether it's looking to address lack of full employment through social welfare measures. it's clear that jay powell is not alone as he tries to tackle unemployment and i think in a way that takes the pressure off. >> charles: so let's pick up on that as far as releasing oil from the strategic reserves. our oil has come down a lot anyway. that reserve is nowhere near capacity. what could of an impact would have on gasoline prices? short time would have an impact. is it mostly for public relations consumption? this would not change the course of where crude oil is and where gasoline is the next two months or so. >> consumers are feeling the pain at the pumps and i think the administration is trying to
1:31 pm
keep gas prices away from the $4 mark. one of the most interesting things about the global discussion to tray to control oil prices, the u.s. is reaching out to japan and china and india to try to have a coordinated approach so that if opec puts upward pressure on prices to be a counter, this shows global collaboration, there's an effort to get through this in a sustainable fashion. >> charles: it's a band aid. they don't have to reach out to anyone. we have american producers here. let them drill. we have it. we don't need it. we could be at $1 oil if we wanted it if we cared. we'll talk soon. san francisco, folks, hit with back-to-back mass looting over the weekend. are lacks laws keeping officials from getting this under control?
1:32 pm

[ forde ] replacing marcia's teeth with dental implants at clearchoice was going to afford her that permanent solution. [ marcia ] clearchoice dental implants gave me the ability to take on the world. i feel so much better, and i think that that is the key. hello, for the last few years, i've been a little obsessed

>> charles: to california now. nordstrom is the latest of bay area retailers to suffer mass looting incidents. one day after an organized mob in san francisco targeted union square area. claudia cowan is in walnut creek, california with the latest. claudia? >> well, good afternoon, charles, a strong of looting incidents has retailers and customers on edge around the bay area. the most brazen of these attacks happened at nordstrom saturday night. dozens of robbers in masks could be seen flooding into the street after ransacking this store, carrying thousands in merchandise to a line of cars waiting at the curb. the escape routed well-planned. at many as 80 people wearing masks and carrying crowbars. three people were arrested
1:37 pm
including a suspect with a gun. two employees were assaulted, one pepper sprayed. the looting here after a dozen stores in san francisco were hit, including louis vuitton and bloomingdale's. the things know that the items will sell quickly online. police stopped one of the get-away cars and arrested eight people. they seized several firearms. investigators are sifting through video and say they're confident more arrests will be made. organized retail crime from san francisco has gotten worse after the closing of cvs stores were closed. notion will change without vigorous prosecutions and state law that classifies theft under $950 as a misdemeanor. there were two other major looting incidents last night.
1:38 pm
all of this very deliberate in terms of the timing, charles. all of the stolen goods will be marked down and sold online just in team for black friday. so on top of the covid closures and the supply chain issues, this is a 1-2-3 punch for retailers. back to you. >> charles: thanks, claudia. so are lacks laws to blame for this shoplifting surge? i want to go to joe partenelli who joins us now. so joe, lacks law, lacks bail, lacks prosecution. there's no disincentive to not join one of those organizele shoplifting rings. it's like a free for all over there. >> it is a free for all. we've been speaking about this for over a year now, ever since the riots. now it's any incident that they can gather to get everybody together. this is well-planned as the
1:39 pm
reporter said. it's going to continue except for one variable right now. they're becoming more violent and becoming more dangerous carrying the guns and the crowbars. so they're ready to business if they have to with anybody that tries to stop them. you can blame the politicians, especially governor newsome. he steps up to the microphone and tells everybody about the steps that he's taken to combat this. it's a day late, a dollar short for him. he allowed it to go on so long, they know until things change in the da's office and there's proper prosecution, it will continue. >> charles: joe, i've said one of the situations is with the sentencing or lack thereof. you know, unfortunately when that is not correct, when that's not a deterrent, it puts undue pressure on the police, terrible pressure on society and communities and feels like those are getting actually worse, more
1:40 pm
lacks. we started to show with someone who had a rap sheet from here to out of this window who got -- who paid a $1,000 bail when he shouldn't have had bail at all. how can we say let's december courage this. several handguns there. using physical intimidation. let's discourage that. isn't that where law enforcement is, disincentivizing these things? >> absolutely. the problem is that law enforcement, because of the dilemma with they face with the public wanting to defund them, it's a demoralization. the problem is that police departments have become reactive and not proactive. we need proactive police departments to go out there and do the jobs. put the undercovers in to the stores and let the malls know and work with them.
1:41 pm
these stores are so afraid of the wokeness that they let these things happen. the drugstores you mentioned before, what do you call ideal solution to this whole dilemma. close the store. we will open another location. so they pull their tail between their legs and go. we need the prosecutors on board with the police departments. the police departments are stymies. the prosecutors will not take the steps to go above and beyond and say we're going to make a new law for this and stop prosecuting them and don't let them out on bail reform. keep this in there. that's what jails are for, to keep them people on the streets. >> charles: i agree 1,000%. my first job in harlem, i worked in a bodega by myself. i had a crowbar. i was 13 years old. i was quaking in my boots every day i was so afraid. i can imagine these people working in these stores.
1:42 pm

>> charles: some breaking news. sean parnell, the republican candidate in pennsylvania has suspended his campaign. this coming after losing a child custody battle. we'll have more as we get it. now this. more of you are signing on the bottom line, the dotted line. existing home prices rising the fastest pace that we've seen since january. now this coming despite tight supply and surging prices. so what exactly is going on here? let's get the read from katrina campens. everybody wants a house. it seems like the more they go up, the more people want them. i'm sure you've seen this.
1:47 pm
>> yeah, great to see you. sales continue the rise. one of the main reasons is job creation. so the housing numbers just came out. the existing home sales are a, you'lly up .8% for a seasonally adjusted rate of 6.34 million units. part of that growth is attributed to investors entering the market. it's become very difficult for first time home buyers to compete because they're paying cash. the reason they're entering the market is because rental prices are sky rocketing. so there's plenty of evidence as well that first time home buyers are actually pushing less. the numbers just came out in 29% of the first time home buyers this year and the year prior to that, it was 32% first time home buyers. historically that number is about 40%. we're seeing the real estate market around the country
1:48 pm
