11:01 am
of the year with some green. let's go to nicole petallides at stock exchange with what you looking at? nicole: people getting back to worst, first day of trading, the end of summer, a feeling of back to business on wall street. dow jones industrials looking good at 88 points, manufacturing numbers obviously rose to a higher level than we expected so that was good news and we see the dollar jumping, oil and gold moved into the green and the picture on the dow jones industrials, seeing names like microsoft and verizon and at&t under pressure and financials doing well like american financial american express, jpmorgan, bank of america, those are the names that are beating the dow jones industrials. i wanted to get to verizon down 3.7% because they had to pay out serious bucks to buy out there part with a 14 year marriage with vodafone and verizon and finally had out $130 billion is
11:02 am
what they agreed to pay and it was more than people thought they paid but this is what the deal is and makes it the third largest corporate deal in history. that is a big deal, a 14 year deal but this is what verizon is doing to get vodafone out and get back to wireless. dagen: front and center for the market's investors worldwide and this country, syria. president obama hoping for prompt vote from congress on military action against that country. as the president meets with key members this morning to drum up support. rich edson is at the white house with the latest on what these meetings will accomplish. rich: meetings still ongoing at the white house in west wing, committee chairman, congressional leaders speaking with president obama and vice president joe biden about syria. president obama leaves for the g 20 and be setup to congress and the resolution he has given some, democrats and republicans looking to make changes.
11:03 am
was asked if he was comfortable with those changes and the president says he is comfortable leaving this up to congress. >> i would not be going to congress if i wasn't serious about consultations and the beating that by shaping the authorization to make sure we accomplish permission, we will be more effective. >> it is not a given that congress will approve this resolution. democrats and republicans all expressing reservations about this. congressional process begins later this afternoon when a senate committee holds a hearing at 2:30 in the afternoon the same panel holds a hearing tomorrow morning again and a house committee does so tomorrow afternoon. we expect to get some voting on the full house full senate some point when full congress returns next week and some news out of the region coming from fox news, the number of destroyers the u.s. had, there were five and now four. that is due to a regular rotation in the eastern
11:04 am
mediterranean. dagen: thank you for the reporting. it starts early this morning, rich edson in washington. lieutenant colonel bill cowan is a u.s. marine officer and fox news contributor joining us with his take from washington d.c.. good to see you, lieutenant colonel. do you think this goes through congress? the president can get all the democrats on board with what he wants to do? >> let me say one of privilege is to be on with you. i have not seen for a long time and i admire watching you when i can. i don't think the president will get what he wants. i may be wrong. he is meeting members of congress and will continue to do that. he may be pulling them to the sides saying give me the vote i want and i will give you a new this or that or post office but most of those members are going to come home with constituents telling them we don't want to go to war, we don't care, we don't know what the objectives are or what the plan is or what the threat is to our strategic
11:05 am
interests or national interests and we don't want you to do it so every member will want to get up and explain how he or she abhors the use of chemical weapons, it was a dastardly thing we should never accept but unfortunately today i am not able to vote with the president. the president will have a tough time. dagen: john mccain said rejection of this initiative, this strike on syria would be catastrophic for the president. the presidency and the credibility of the u.s.. do you agree with that? >> i am in the middle east every month and we have no credibility over there right now at all, most of the people i talked to cover virtually all the people i talked to from a number of countries watch us in egypt and are shaking their heads in disbelief. they remember how we walked out of iraq without leaving at least a token force to show our commitment to long-term democracy in iraq and there isn't any long-term democracy looks like. they see as walking out of afghanistan with no confidence
11:06 am
in american foreign policy whatsoever and if we do or don't strike we will strike awful weight if we do strike, just another indication we are pretty weak, we are not viewed with respect or fear. dagen: are you suggesting it doesn't matter what we do? >> this is so complex i try to listen to everybody's opinion and finally realized our national strategic interest, the thing we need to be concerned about is chemical weapons, not whether assad uses them but whether they fall in the hands of the people who are trying to oust him. there are a lot of islamists, al qaeda, people out of iraq we fought against before. a lot of truly bad people fighting against assad and perhaps overpowering the moderate forces fighting against assad. our problem is chemical weapons in the hands of the wrong people and being used against israel. whatever works strike we may take, evokes a response from syria, iran or hezbollah, we
11:07 am
could suddenly with no intent on our part be pulled into something much bigger, much greater and the israelis are not going to surround. dagen: if we don't do anything what does that say to iran? does that open the door? >> they are watching this carefully. the president said an hour ago we don't have a response to this chemical attack, we send a message that nuclear proliferation doesn't count. i am ok with the response but it can't be just a response that doesn't have some ultimate goal, not just slapping assad around, but what are we going to do once we have slapped around? we have not heard this administration clearly articulate that and we are a couple years behind the power curve. dagen: it was great to see you as always. we will see you soon. he is back. former basketball star dennis rodman arriving in north korea to visit his friend kim jong un. this is his second trip to north

11:24 am
decades or whatever. dagen: what about the impact of syria in terms of spillover. prices have moved up some. and the next week or so in this country. >> the biggest issue with syria is whether it uses its proxys to damage some oil infrastructure. we have a number of large pipelines transiting across turkey delivering oil from iraq as well as the caspian sea and if something should happen in the strait of hormuz the oil market would not be able to stand it if we saw an oil tanker on fire. just a single one even if we didn't have a strait closure. dagen: you mentioned the supply disruptions in libya and we have to worry about iraq, and any potential conflict around the suez canal. do you expect any of those
11:25 am
disruptions to clear up in the near term, to bring oil down significantly? >> i don't expect to closure of the suez canal. it is too important to the economy of egypt. take a wait-and-see attitude in libya, things seem to be quite messy. the argument over jobs, corruption, security at the ports in eastern and western libya, and we don't have a well functioning government. i think oil prices are going to remain elevated peer over the next couple weeks and await the outcome of strikes against syria and any ramifications. dagen: gas price is going to the cheaper winter blends shortly, that is good news for drivers in this country. >> in spite of the high oil prices there's a little bit of good news for the consumer because gasoline prices are going to remain steady over the next couple weeks and begin their decline.

11:34 am
have a smart phone to bring out. it is unlikely that will be successful. they will be under a lot of stress. this addresses it directly. they definitely needed somebody understood microsoft. they get all three of those things. i think strategically, this is a good move. i do not think that they will recover this this year, but they are buying for the future of microsoft. dagen: if they get a strong patent pool with this acquisition. >> yes. they could have the strongest patent portfolio in mobile. a lot of them are happening in
11:35 am
the courtroom, not on the marketplace. dagen: also, what does this say about blackberry and its future? >> this puts more pressure on blackberry to find some large pool of money. now you have google, samsung, apple and microsoft all very well funded. blackberry is just not at that funding level. they will have to get creative. dagen: will apple pay attention to this deal at all? >> i think apple has enough problems internally. the bottom is, microsoft is a vertically integrated company. they are in a much better

position. a good set of resources. it will put pressure on apple's market share. dagen: rob, it was great to see you. thank you very much. house speaker jon banner design of a meeting with president obama. we will tell you about what he said about the u.s. military taking action against assad. we had to the cme to see if commodities can continue their bullish run into september. take a look at the treasury markets. the direction of yield and the selling in the treasury market.

11:42 am
skeptical of u.s. intervention overseas. you will need a big number among democrats. another key factor is even if they are skeptical, they may at the end of the date decide we do not want to lodge a no vote that will be a blow against our presidency. dagen: is a very narrow and very targeted? >> you have democrats immediately rewriting the resolution. at the same time, you have republican hawks saying they are not sure if they can support this unless it is stronger and broader. dagen: where did that come from with the president seemingly cutting out his national security team?
11:43 am
it was shocking, really. >> it is bizarre. they do not understand why he is coming to congress. you had john kerry giving a speech that was clearly an imminent war speech. the president does not even consult him. the president may have blinked. there is a possibility that congress puts no and he is neutered overseas. dagen: is there more to lose if we do nothing? oh sod it, as you pointed out, supported by all of our enemies. >> i do believe that it is legitimately a close call. it is very important for the nation's credibility that we act in syria.

syria in six months. i think didn't want to humiliate obama as much as he can. the region is plagued by the conflict. there is the conflict between the gulf states and the iranian access. cheryl: okay. that is a good long list of all the problems that are there. what we saw back in 2010 was french money. money that was going to invest in the region. at the time, the surrounding nations, that was you and i were there. we should say that the french still have interest in syria
12:06 pm
that they are losing money on. can't we return? >> i think in the case of israel, they can withstand whatever is going on in the short term. their technology is so precise. their military is strong. the region can hurt israel a little bit, but not change. the hope was that the arab spring would create democracies. we solve the early signs of that in syria before egypt blue. i think you are going back to a secretary in conflict and i think the region is essentially on investable. cheryl: what you saw at the
12:07 pm
time, what specific investments in israel would you make today? >> technology and military defense are where the israelis a call. if they do have a successful peace talk, their markets for peaceful goods will expand even more. as we stand now, technology and military are the strength of the israelis. cheryl: maybe it is a way to make a contrarian bets right now. let me ask you one more thing. we have these warships off the coast right now. the cost of this to the u.s. government, u.s. spending, tax payer money, taxpayer paying,
12:08 pm
investors looking to defense stocks. what do you make of that? >> defense stocks will be under pressure for the foreseeable future as we take less of a commitment. i am not saying that individual stocks cannot have a good six month. the society will reallocate funds away from defense on a secular basis as we get our federal books in order. that does not mean that individual stocks cannot do well. cheryl: thank you very much for being here. appreciate it. dennis: what issbugging me?

the federal government meddling in the housing market yet again. the obama administration wants to create a mortgage market that is more forgiving to borrowers that lost their homes due to the recession. great idea. widen the pool of homebuyers finding people who already defaulted on one home by another only a year later with government help. have we gone mad? government policies pushed by both parties. now, we are at it again. the feds have guaranteed as many as nine in every ten new mortgages. if you defaulted on your home because of a recession, i am sorry for your pain, but i do

12:24 pm
having said that, i think the final resolution was somewhat a compromise outcome. i think they got probably double the per monthly subscriber fees that they were getting. timetable, on the other hand, it was a major outcome for them. the odds were against them. i think that this is definitely from an analytical there. both parties can at least point to something for a positive in this. >> that is why we see both shares up. dennis: cbs has been more than twice. and, you figure the nfl played some kind of role.
12:25 pm
>> nbc, they put billions of dollars to air the national football league. it is the top-rated entertainment programming in america. if you are cbs, you need to recapture that money. you are not espn. retransmission fees look like they will just keep going up. let's talk about what happened next. it seems to me that every station group in the country will go to their local group and say they want to double in the next few years. what do you say? >> i think you are right in the sense that this deal will embolden a lot of other local
12:26 pm
stations to ask for more money. that is already happening, dennis. we are fearful of what we think will be a backlash. you have several other major deals come down. dish and disney will be in another negotiation towards the end of this month as the deal expires. i think what has happened now is a paradigm shift. the content has never been stronger in that ecosystem. distributors are really playing this game. if this happens to time warner cable, what about the, you know, dozens, if not hundreds, other cable operators out there that will be facing other content providers. i think the odds have really shifted for the content providers. dennis: okay.
12:27 pm
one reason the fec did not step is because they do not have a lot of authority over cable systems. they have tried. they have lost three court rulings. now, time warner cable is saying we have to bring in these broadcasters. we have to go to congress. >> john mccain has advocated an à la carte model. clearly, sports is driving a lot of this. it is not fair to those that do not watch sports. that is probably 70-80% of america.

clearly, sports is eating up a bigger and bigger portion of the cable bill. at some point, you would expect them to finally step into this. dennis: often, they mess things up when they step in. >> at the end of the day, i think the guys recognize that it is free market negotiation. however, with the 12 prices rising at multiple rates over inflation, i think this will probably force the hand of regulators to at least begin to revisit some of the regulations that have been out there for several decades. the issue is not win, but how far do they kind of push those. right now it seems to be somewhat favoring broadcasters

today. cheryl: if you look at the revenue picture revenue is cut in half. is that the case for him to leave microsoft? >> to be fair he came into a difficult situation. at the time nokia had missed the smart phone revolution and peace tempting right about that time so it was difficult to make up that ground. i don't think that should turn against him. he made some changes to adopt the windows phone ecosystem and revenue continued to slide but he was up against tough competition android and iphone. cheryl: you have samsung and apple and microsoft only has 3%
12:37 pm
of the market of handsets so they have a long way to go. at the same time if you look at nokia's revenue projections they might be down further so did microsoft agreed deal or did it make a mistake, and abetting the nokia would save them in a new hand said business? >> that is a great question and when you look at their past history microsoft certainly hasn't had a great history with acquisitions but we think strategically this is very important for microsoft so the first thing this does is gives them control of the entire smart phone value stock. they have hardware and send to the apps store so that is one of the big things, the second thing removes a lot of uncertainty around microsoft and nokia partnership. a lot of apps developers believe we are having trouble believing nokia would support the windows phony the system for too much longer so this puts it in hands that are at least financially capable of pushing this along and the third thing is it makes this partnership, makes the new

12:39 pm
got a great deal. do you agree? >> i don't know they got a great deal but the big thing is what they paid was 10% of the cash on their balance sheet and 90% of their catches oversees the they don't have to deal with repatriation taxes. cheryl: i want to make clear to our viewers, to absorb that. go ahead and finish your thought. >> exactly right, $7 billion and before they were paying a one billion dollars a year to support the partnership so they're bringing it in house and have more control of their destiny. in that perspective, strategically it was probably a pretty good deal but the biggest problem is execution and we will see over time if microsoft can make this work. cheryl: they need to make this work. we can all agree on that. dennis: cyberbacklash from syria, the syrian electronic, targeting the u.s. marine

12:45 pm
attacks. you need to comprehend the allies of syria, the syrian electronic army are allowing them to download the various cyberweaponry that allow you to bypass the fire walls and the encryption use to protect these sites as well as allowing them to target more particular new ones, not just websites that back end net works. what we need to worry about is not just the sight the being redirected to information pages but whether or not they are used as watering holes to attack anyone who visits those sites that would download articles or any sort of material relevant to the conflict itself. dennis:@was to reach out to marines and they don't fight for your country, don't attack syria never mind they took over or redirect a site named that new recruits, people who want to apply to be in the marines, not guys currently serving so you wonder how much each active that is. but overall if we do attack and attack her counterattack in the u.s. to aaron for stricter systems, in your view are we

12:48 pm
>> we do get a little bit of a bullish pattern before and after labor day but that seems to be quickly fading. august is down 4%. what is interesting is defensive sectors didn't participate in the rally and offer any sort of safe haven. those have been huge laggers when you look at utilities, consumer staples and that has to do with interest rates in the rise that have been rising, and that does affect these the offensive sectors. cheryl: the other half of what we have seen today, house speaker john boehner came out and gave the president is support on a military strike in syria. is that not being factored in? >> tough to gauge what effect, a lot of people thought the market would bounce after the strike had started and we had a delay regardless. is anybody's guess if you can really in the ads and flows of
