storms with hurricane potential have some states bracing for the worse. the irs scandal among others causing americans to lose faith in government. former congressman dennis kucinich is always a blessed to have around and he is here to talk about it. connell: active nicole petallides for stocks. it has been ugly in the market. nicole: we agreed 2013. every month has been a winning month on wall street but it has changed. you may remember those fomc minutes, the reversal in stocks, concern about the fed tightening and the bring off of bond buying. concern throughout these years since we recovered from the recession but that is in the forefront today because of the ndp report with private payrolls and that rose by $135,000 but
11:33 am
that was below analysts' estimates of $150,000. what about factory orders? we got that in today. economic news weaker than expected. those came in with a rise of 1% but the estimate was 1.5% and numbers are just shy of what people hoped for. 29 of 30 dow components are to the down side with the exception of one and that is pfizer. connell: we will talk about the money angle. the latest developments on it as espn is reporting major league baseball will look to suspend players, miami area clinics known for performance enhancing drugs and two notable names said to be caught up in this mess, alex rodriguez of the new york yankees and the milwaukee brewers, both players had their names show up on record that this clinic and if they were implicated they could suspend
11:34 am
them both for 100 gains. tony bosh at the center of it, founder of the miami clinic. espn says he has received an agreement with m.l. be an come to an agreement, to cooperate in the investigation to testify against these players. dagen: the yankees have been rumored to be in looking for a whale out of alex rodriguez's mega million dollar contract, he has five years left on the deal estimated to be $114 million left and that contract, $20 million for this year, hasn't played a game this year. et 3 even if these allegations never came to light, yankees would love to get out of it but with this can they? can you avoid the contract? judge andrew napolitano joins us, senior judicial analysts. they can't get out of this. >> they would love to get out of
11:35 am
it. good morning. always a pleasure to be with you know matter where i am. the way this works is the yankees cannot void the contract on the basis of drug use alone unless and until major-league baseball does so first. this is in there to protect players from having their contracts voided at the tail end of their careers when they are not worth as much money as their teams thought they would be when they negotiated the contract so if major league baseball finds and determines alex rodriguez's behavior is were the above 100 game suspension which is the rest of the season during the course of which he wouldn't get paid so he would lose $15 million the yankees could use that as an instrument to avoid the rest of his contract. as soon as he is suspended he is going to demand arbitration, he is suspended during the arbitration without pay but the arbitration is like a file with an arbitrator, not with the judge or a hearing or a jury,
11:36 am
major league baseball will present its case and rodriguez's lawyers will present theirs and the arbitrator will rule. dagen: how much rodriguez would fight the yankees if they tried to avoid it. how long would that bill one in the court system? >> it could go on for a while. it would depend on the evidence on which major league baseball based its decision to suspend him. that evidence would not have to be testimonial. it could be a documentary. stated differently if the commissioner of baseball bud selig is satisfied that there is enough solid well grounded lawfully obtained documentary evidence, pieces of paper implementing a-rod they don't have to ask his version or take any testimony, they could suspend him as soon as bud selig comes to this conclusion. then the ball is in a rod's camp to challenge the suspension. if he wins the challenge he is back on apparel and back playing as soon as he is well enough to
11:37 am
play. if he loses that and the ball is in the yankees' camp to say we don't want this guy here at all let's break the contract. no secret the yankees have been looking to break a contract for a couple years. if he can even play -- connell: a different story completely but they would love to get out. the end fascination with this surrounds president as it often does in many cases that a-rod is no stranger to that. he was going to sign before the yankees, to take a pay cut at the time the union -- can't take a pay cut or have that president. in this case completely different but the same person involved is there any precedent for this situation where a contract would be voided for something like this that you know of? judge napolitano: yes there is. can't give you a name of the players but i know this has happened before and it is clear under the law this can be done. however it has not been done
11:38 am
with a player of a rod's caliber and income and our friend and colleague stuart varney would say he is extremely litigious. he runs for ruble years left and right. he will show up with a law firm ready to try the case and another law firm ready to replace them. he will not take this lying down and you wouldn't even. connell: we can't get in the position of being involved in any way. dagen: i was going to say go through lawyers like the goes through women. judge napolitano: many people might agree with that. dagen: thank you so much. good to see you. be well. the contract is the same thing. even when they inked it, couldn't find the deal. connell: it is bad economics, obviously as you get older, anything especially sports, your production will decline, you have a guy in his 40s and if
11:39 am
none of this happens the judge said there trying their best to get out of what was their mistake. dagen: they are old and in the way. storms are brewing, more potential on the hurricane front, some states are bracing for the worst. connell: taxes are the reasons more film studios are turning to atlanta to get their blockbusters on the big screen. the net growing number of controversies at the white house anti-washington. susan rice's appointments add that to the list, why america is losing confidence in government, losing trust. take a look at treasury markets, heidi yields doing? triple digit loss on the dow, but it is down, some buying in that notorious even. . haven . . ♪

connell: and new poll shows 31% of americans are optimistic with the state of the u.s. government. to put that in perspective in 1974 after the watergate scandal and vietnam war 55% of americans were optimistic. with us is former democratic congressman and current fox news contributor dennis kucinich. not a great comparison. when you look at it that way, is it understandable we have become so cynical or pessimistic? >> americans by aaron nature are optimistic and we don't like to be dragged into pessimism but there are underlying economic realities affecting a lot of americans with eight million people, nearly eight million unemployed, another eight million underemployed, middle-class struggling to survive. the day to day things americans have to be involved in to make a living on what i could think was most people to focus on when they see things in washington

wasn't this route to get a ban. >> why they shouldn't do it. it's easy to win a ban at the importation of goods. that's been the problem with the international trade commission. they should not have taken the fight there. they should not have taken the to the itc, but duke it out in court. what apple was saying amsong is slapping us an unreasonably high royalty on the use of the technology, and now it's not just, again, apple could be affected, but at&t too. cheryl: this is the wrong group that's in it, but, bill, what if congress gets involved? i mean, exec not really going to affect this, but what about legislative action? >> first of all -- cheryl: is that right in >> in the short term, they went to get the ban, and that's why the administration should do something in the short term to prevent it from -- congress, as long as -- cheryl: historically, presidents
12:05 pm
do not overturn rulings. dennis: i have another view. i watch apple and samsung a long time. this patent dispute. what's the problem here is that both companies let this get into government and the courts. once you give it up, you know, apple won a case in california. samsung won in asia. now they won in the u.s.. sit down, talk to each other, cross life pa tents, stop firing missiles, the government, and get together yourselves because you are hurting each other now. now you're in real danger of damaging both companies. >> the administration got the two ceos in a room and banged heads, i think you could get it done. i think the administration and the u.s. congress or the u.s. government has to insert itself into this to make sure our companies -- >> but the problem -- dennis: that's the problem, man, too much government. >> last time the president overturned it was reagan, and only a handful have since 1913. this could rest if apple has another iphone that blows away
12:06 pm
the iphone4. dennis: will it become political? >> look at the apple customers and employees, you know, they are constituency too, and if you're a congressman and your district suffers if apple products are not sold, that's going to outweigh taxes. cheryl: what about the research and development argument here that, you know, universities come in, they can't protect themselves, and apple spends money on legislation than they spend op making a new product. >> here's the problem. the pa sent problem was conceived to help technology advance. i want apple to license samsung's ability to accident happen a file over, and it'd be in the iphone now, but i have to wait. over the last 20 years, the system changed from advancing innovation to protecting innovation so others can't have it. it's abuse of the patent process, and that's one underlying principle that we are not progressing. >> this move totally gurnet cuts
12:07 pm
what the white house is doing in stopping the use of the international trade commission to do bans of sales of goods in the united states. this is a patent fight that belongs in the courts, not at the itc. dennis: in the board rooms, not court. in court, you failed as a company. cheryl: jim? >> i would say i agree with liz is they shouldn't be at the itc, but because they went that route, and it damages, against apple, that we need to intervene in some way or fashion. cheryl: okay, thank you. dennis: going after the congressman with the susan rice, stick around for that. we have the national security adviser out leaving the post after more than four years, his replacement, ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, center of the benghazi controversy, removed herself from conversation, but it's causing a stir on capitol hill, and president obama expected to announce at the
12:08 pm
white house this afternoon, and joining us from capitol hill, congressman phil, and thank you for being with us. we are bole going to ask you a few questions, and i wanted to start with when firefighters are fighting a fire out in the forest there, sometimes what you do is start another fire to fight that first fire. now, is president obama, by naming susan rice, who is controversial to the new job, managing to start a new fire to divert attention from the fire about the irs and justice and benghazi scandal? >> well, it very well could be. you know, all this stuff, all three scandals, and, honestly, i feel, to this day, that the bigger scandal is benghazi. there were no lives lost as bad as the irs scandal is, to lose an ambassador, i don't know when the last time that happened, and three special forces guys, heros, patriots, nothing bigger than that, and who knows if there was a little of a di veer janes to start another brush
12:09 pm
fire to get attention away from the big fire. it may have happened. >> congressman, cheryl casone here, here's the thing about don, he's one of the few voices that have been strong against the issue of china. he's telling the president we got an issue with china, especially with cybersecurity, and now he's out. this meeting is friday. susan rice, many say on the republican side, in your party, she's not the right person to handle the issue of china. how do you respond? >> well, i agree with you, and i'm certainly not sure that susan rice is the right person to handle the national security adviser position. i mean, the answer of what did she know and when did she know it certainly, admiral mull p's report didn't answer that. i mean, he didn't even interview secretary of state hillary clinton. susan rice, to go on television that day and spin that yarn without looking into the
12:10 pm
background, you know, it really lends no confidence in her ability to be the national security adviser. dennis: okay. >> i really feel sorry for her because i think the adminnstration, when they did that to her op that fateful day, five days after 9/11, they really threw her under the bus which was tremendously unfair. why? just because hillary clinton was too tiredded to testify? give me a break. dennis: right, yes. now, what do you think about, back to the irs scandal for a moment, the fact that lois lerner who headed up the entire targeting division is still getting paid. anything you can do about that? seems to me, maybe, she ought to resign without pay. >> how about a job making $180yowrks a year on administration leave, all benefits, health care, pension -- whatever. i mean, you know, that is appalling. the fact that she pleads the fifth, well, obviously, she had something to tell that would
12:11 pm
incriminate her. i did write a letter to the acting directer of the irs and say why are these people not fired, no one did it. it takes sometimes over a year with all this due process, many of them, as you know, unionized, and their lawyered up, and, you know, it's awfully hard, but if this committee committedded one of the ten deadly sins, which she has, clearly, in regards to constitutional rights and other thing, she should be fired. let her have a day in court, but don't let her sit home smoking cigarettes, playing golf, whatever, making $180,000 on my taxpayer money. dennis: okay. a last question, congressman. given that senate has no approval over national security appointment, can it distract congress from irs and other scandals? >> we're not going to let that happen. i'll tell you, have a great confidence in darrell issa,
12:12 pm
chairman of oversight and government reform, great confidence in the speaker and leadership in the house and senate. we're not going to take the foot off the pedal because people died in benghazi, and we want to know what happened, and, of course, the person in cincinnati that was overthe tax exempt applications, these non-for-profit that had tea party or patriot name in them that came on the side of scrutiny, well, now that same person is transferred to check the boxes in regard to health care and, you know, the worst possible thing that could happen. dennis: thank you very much, congressman. good day, sir. >> all right, thank you very much. cheryl: breaking news right now, i want to give you an update on the building collapse happening in downtown philadelphia. at this point, this is better news than we had moments ago. two victims believed to be trapped inside the building earlier reports had eight to ten victims. they are searching the salvation
