>> we will have a conversation about the situation in syria. the use of chemical weapons in syria is not only a tragedy, but also a violation of international law that must be addressed. rich: a senate briefing is underway. administration officials will offer another briefing. reuters is now reporting that the syrian prime minister will travel to moscow.
dagen: if you look at the vote count, it looks like it could go the other way in the house. rich: the house is not counting votes yet. lawmakers are not back yet. there really is no accurate vote count. it is way too early to tell if this will be defeated or not. dagen: thank you. we will see you tomorrow. let's bring in chuck nash. good to see you. can we build international support for this? would that be a better way to
i think what has to be understood by the world community that has been reluctant so far to get involved , at this point, politics, it is too difficult in the g20s setting to even try to bring this up. i am very surprised that the president said he expects to have extensive talks with putin. dagen: what are the chances that, let's say congress does not approve a strike, what are the chances that the president would go ahead on his own and use his executive power.
>> total responsibility for all of the unintended consequences that may follow. there is a huge political calculation going on in this. this is a military problem that is going to demand either one side we were soundly receded. there has to be a resounding victory. the new deal with the fallout politically. i just do not see it being in

>> if people were afraid of war in syria, you would see a rush to safety in recent days. treasuries are not the safe haven that they used to be. the biggest threat that we may be facing is economic growth. treasuries are plummeting. if indeed the crisis in syria is heating up, where are people flocking to? again lost its status as a safe haven over the years. the same thing can happen to the dollar. dagen: gold is down about $20 an ounce at the moment.
let's say interest rates keep moving up and stocks are at a standstill. that is not necessarily a bad thing. >> we have been conditioned to buy stocks. what if somebody dares to take a profit? october is coming up. we had portfolio insurance. it is very dangerous. we see asset flows into the stock market. we get very concerned. we decide to step on the sidelines.
>> the fed has no course. what we need is fresh blood. what is a bad number? what is the fed going to do differently? we need fresh blood to provide a vision. now we just know that they do not know what they are doing. everyone is on the sideline. volatility will exist in the bond market. people think they can seek refuge in the stock market. it is a sign that we have a bubble. volatility is likely to pick up. dagen: new blood is on its way.

this is one of the biggest walmart protest since the black friday protest staged against walmart. the union groups and activist groups and workers are saying walmart should pay an annual $25,000 in salary to workers. walmart is saying, listen, we give pay plus benefits. reinstate the workers who allegedly were fired after they protested in earlier actions against walmart. they are also saying reverse the 80 disciplinary actions against
these workers. they are saying they filed 100 actions against walmart. we will be tracking this story throughout the day. dagen: unions try to boost their membership. thank you so much for that. president obama saying he did not set a red line when it comes to syria. the world did. donald rumsfeld does not agree. >> this president has tried to find a way to blame everybody or anybody for everything. leadership requires that you stand up, take a position, provide clarity and take responsibility. i cannot imagine him saying that
>> reporter: looks like it is going to be called dollar minuend more because you're going to have to pay more than a dollar. so the original idea was the dollar menu. now it seems that the products on the dollar menu and more value menu will be tested in markets ranging in price from about $1 up to $5. so-called share rubble items, such as a 20-piece box of nuggets. you may be paying more than $1, however, a 20 piece box of nine is may be feeding more than one person. that is the idea behind it. so this is something they have been testing, struggling to keep up sales. they're going to relaunch a revised dollar menu. it could come later this year. over at mcdonald's. did your dollar and more ready. dagen: thank you so much. my next guest has perspective on
syria that most cannot. the former secretary of defense, donald rumsfeld. it is great to speak with you today. you were in the defense department in vietnam. you were and the defense department during the iraqi war. let's get syria. the parallels with those conflicts, the differences right now. >> if you look at the middle east, it seems to me that one has to conclude that the strategic interest of the united states is probably first and foremost egypt and its relationship with israel, which has contributed to a somewhat reasonably stable time for much of the last several decades. thanks to on more said not who was later killed, of course, by the muslim brotherhood. the other strategic interest, i think, is the situation in iran.
developing a nuclear weapon, which if they get a nuclear weapon, it very well may lead to proliferation of there weapons in that part of the world because other countries will feel that the genie is out of the bottle. syria is less important. it is important because it is so closely allied with iran, and they are engaging in terrorist acts around the world and supporting a number of terrorist organizations. but i think the vote in congress is going to be a tough one for members of the house and senate because it is a close call. dagen: if congress votes against action in syria, does the president then need to take action as the leader of the country? >> i think the reason that there is tactically no coalition support, unlike with president bush in afghanistan and iraq and the global war on terror, he had a large coalitions with dozens
of countries. i think the reason that there is not that sense of unity in the congress is because the leadership has been so lacking clarity and ambivalent about what he is going to do. he has mostly said what he is not going to do. he has left no clear impression anwar sadat will still be standing when it's over, which tells of the syrian people if they'd better be careful if they try to death row him out. i mean -- i mean, assad out. they could run the risk of being killed or have their families killed. so it is either way, if the congress -- legally the president can go right dead if the congress votes no. the credibility of the united states if the congress votes no is damaged and our influence is
weekend. by the same token, it seems to me, that if the president goes forward with the uncertainty about what he is going to do and why he is going to do it, i think our credibility also is weekend and into the lens is weekend. our enemies in syria and iran and elsewhere will be emboldened it. dagen: one of those outcomes has to be worse than the other, does it not? >> well, my book, at the top, there are no easy choices. all are between evil. the consequences of which are hard to judge. i think they are hard to judge, and i do not envy the president wrestling with these tough problems, and i do not envy the members of congress because i think they are faced with -- the country has been driven down into a cul-de-sac where to get out you're going to have to probably backtrack. in any event it is not going to be attractive to.
dagen: in terms of backtracking, there was the comment about the red line. could you just read that as an effort to build international support for any move that we might make? >> i don't know what his motive was, but clearly the words left the impression accurately or and accurately, that he wanted to be able to blame someone other than himself. he is being accused of trying a red line and then not living up to it. i mean, this figure of speech that we will fire a shot across their belt, no one fires a shot across someone's bound unless they are willing to back it up, unless they're willing to fire one at the ship if, in fact, the ship does not stop doing what it was doing. that is why you fire a shot across the bows. you don't fire it for practice. the idea that he wants to be able to blame other people, the congress in this case and his
political operatives put out a tweet saying, in effect, now the congress is like the dog that caught the bus or something to that effect. how could he say, i did not draw the red line, when his words were exactly that? now, you may be right. maybe he was trying to say, gee, the international community drew their red line, and all of you should climb in this boat with me. i don't think you do it that way. leaders don't do it that way. leaders provide vision and clarity and call people to a cause, in mission, and not try to share blame and assign blame. dagen: mr. secretary, great to speak with you. thank you for being here. former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld. senator john mccain has been in the center of this decision of whether to go into syria are not or strike syria. he got caught red-handed playing a poker game on his iphone during a hearing about that very

almost 100 to carry rock. who wants that? you cannot wear it around. well, maybe you can. so congress is honing in on the situation about syria. let's talk about all of the other battles that are on deck. we have won over the budget, the debt ceiling, immigration, the health care exchanges go into effect on october the first which could be not it. joining me now, radio talk show host and a fox news contributor. how does serious impact on of those things? >> first of all, on that diamond, the fact that you said who would buy that, who would wear that, you need to turn in your girl card. dagen: men are so stupid for buying one and diamond rings to get married because if you get married and divorced the woman gets to keep the ring anyway, and it is the worst investments ever.
if you buy it, getting gates, and get the ring back, you will probably get $0.10 on the dollar. >> i'll take that time and any day. on syria, the more important note, you're absolutely right. all of these agenda items that were already on the agenda and schedule for congress to deal with, the continuing resolution, funding the government, finding obamacare, the debt ceiling, all kinds of budget battles. of course, immigration which the congress expected to try to deal with in september and october. a lot of these things, especially immigration, may be pushed off a little bit. in the timeline of the budget battle, the time line will stay the way that it is right now and less that syria intervention, assuming it happens, it goes really off the rails in which case it will blow apart anything that congress has plans. dagen: can we assume that happens? people can talk about the votes, how they're going.
>> nobody knows. it could go either way. this is a president double run congress and the c many times anyway. even if congress denies him approval to hysteria, he could go ahead and do what he wants anyway. the smart money is probably on some sort of limited strike right now. then again, you have unintended consequences. that always happens with a military strike. even if you try to contain it and keep a narrow, it has a tendency of blowing up in directions that you don't anticipate. dagen: it has been a long time since i have seen so many different opinions and perspectives on an issue that does not seem to fall along party lines. you have conservatives and republicans who do not think we should do anything without an international coalition. he feels that way. need to do more, some republicans think. and then the democrats are falling in line with the white
house in no way that you would not normally expect. >> some of them are, but there are a lot of democrats and liberals who are anti-war and oppose this anyway. conservatives, liberals. all kind of in the same boat. the president will have a tough time. but we are on the fox business network. this is a money-oriented show. there was a headline coming out of the republican caucus. the chairman of the house armed services committee may want said use any kind of scary action to make an argument for removing this sequester limits on defense spending. you can anticipate that if they're going to make that argument, let's restore defense spending, let's restore the sequester, at least on defense, that the democrats will come back and say if you're going to do that, then restore domestic spending cuts. there is going to be another layer to the budget battle fight going in to the fall because of syria.

[speaking in native tongue] >> translator: i watch the situation in congress. people ask, is there al qaeda?
he says, no. the main combat unit, they know about this. it is not pleasant for me to see this. while we communicate with this and assume they are decent people, he lives openly, and he knows that he lies. this is sad. dennis: those are fighting words. rich edson joins us with more from washington. >> reporter: a response from the state department, the secretary of state before congress says the syrian opposition has increasingly become more defined by moderation. russian president putin disputes that as is the operation is extreme and calls secretary john kerry a liar. they say, this is certainly not the first time we have seen of this role approach from president putin. this is say, secretary gates to testify truthfully and accurately to congress. with that they g27 begins. he restored to a having a conversation, trying to win international support for a
serious strike. meanwhile, the continue briefing lawmakers on the administration's plans, and many remain skeptical. >> i am also very wary of the united states becoming entangled more and more deeply in what is a civil war. >> reporter: senate foreign relations committee has advanced a resolution granting theent lio attack syria. under this plan president obama could have up to 90 days to conduct military operations. the full senate considers that plan next week when both houses of congress return on monday. back to you. dennis: all right. thank you. for more on this, let's bring in dan from washington, doing a great deal of reporting and the crisis. i guess we should not be surprised. but what is the president does not get congressional approval? to see go ahead anyway?
>> well, i think that is an open question. a lot of people point to the president's, president clinton and the cause of crisis. he asked for approval back in and did not get it and went ahead. i think president obama has indicated that he is willing to go forward fan sees it as a necessary step. his decision to go to congress was a surprise. i don't think we know what he is going to do, but at this point i would say that the odds are he would go forward, even if he cannot get approval from congress. dennis: the irony is, whenever damage they do in these limited air strikes, russians could very well provide new versions of that to the assad regime. >> certainly russia plays an important role. they have people on the ground, they're going to be a key player. you know, the tensions that we are seeing play out are going to play into this as president obama tries to find a way to
navigate through this difficult crisis. ashley: the two main concerns on both sides of this is that a limited military strike would drag the u.s. into this murky civil war. on the other side of that, a limited strike does not go far enough some say. what is the balance to this attack? what can the u.s. to to make it effective? >> well, you have hit at the crux of it here. that is the question that i think is hanging of people in congress. as you know, senator mccain wants this to go forward. he succeeded yesterday in getting language but in that said the intent of the u.s. is to change the momentum on the battlefield in favor of the rebels. how do you do that? if you're just doing a limited strike that is meant to degrade the ability of assad to use chemical weapons, you have said to more than just hit military headquarters, intelligence headquarters. other people argue that if you are hitting his helicopters used
to put troops on the ground, hitting missiles, you are going forward. secretary of state john kerry argued this yesterday. he said that we will be doing more than just sending a message, but he does not want to go as far as taking a side in the civil war. a very difficult path to go down. i don't think they know exactly where they want to go. the pentagon is expanding its firepower. they do want to use long-range bombers. president assad is hardening his targets there. so there is going to be more targets to hit which is already spending beyond what they said just last week. ashley: and to president putin point, how do we know what the makeup of the rebel forces? john kerry says maybe 15 to 25 percent could be considered extremists, but it all seems rather vague. >> i don't think that a lot of people have a good handle on exactly how many of the rebel
forces would be considered extremist. people have to consider the fact that even if it is 45%. they are effective fighters. at this point they are more effective than the ones with the u.s. of backing in a lot of areas and have the ability to expand. the u.s. is trying to find a way to imply that more pro american forces, but that effort has been slow going. they still need to do a lot more to empower people on the ground so that they can tip the balance of power, even among the rebel forces. ashley: definitely a complicated act. thank you for joining us. we appreciated markets should continue to grind higher supported by improving economic conditions. director of investment joining us now. you say, for investors to lower long-term minded syria should be looked at simply as a buying
opportunity. >> well, that is obviously operating on the assumption that the near term issue does not disrupt the global economy in a long lasting late, which is typically the case for the majority of the interventions that we have seen in the middle east, other wartime efforts. eventually the problems dissipate and we get back to more normal operating environments. that is the case, long-term minded investors should simply look at the earnings power of the company they are investing in, recognize that the valuations are now are relatively fair. take any decrease in valuation as an opportunity to get things cheaper than they would otherwise. the operating assumption is that markets would back off on that news. basically a reflection that some investors somewhere will need extra liquidity terry knows the near term times and will put pressure on the market just for a temporary time.
ashley: with that in mind, we not only have syria, the fed tapering, congressional budget battles and so on as well as global economic -- at least a slow economic economy. how do you position your portfolio? >> we think that investors need to be optimistic. they need to be constructive, but not overly aggressive. that means not necessarily hiding in cash and treasuries, buying equities for a portion of your asset allocation, but be thoughtful as to what you are doing. don't just go chasing after the highest yielding more fastest-growing. right now is a particularly good time and opportunity to invest in companies with high profit margins and large free cash flow in yield, basically getting a valuation discount and large profit margin. that is available in companies that have dividends, the ability
to pay and grow on a long-term basis. we find particular opportunities for that in technology, industrials, as well as health care. ashley: you also like microsoft. they just spent $7 billion on nokia. what did you like the stock? are you concerned? >> first of all, microsoft is meant to be example of that idea of the high free cash flow, low profit margin company within the technology space that is attractive. eleven times earnings, free cash flow and operating profit margin machine. putting aside concerns for the transition. when things are happening like that, a major acquisition announcement, their thoughts on the company itself, as they always do when you have any major changes. the valuation opportunity is still there. there is an underlying operating assumption that the company will
deploy its cash correctly. ashley: very good. great information. thank you for joining yesterday. >> thank-you. ashley: all right. blackberry looking for a buyer. take a look at shares popping on that news. nearly two and a half%, up top 11 box. meanwhile, could a strong jobs report cement fed tapering? details ahead. first, as we head to the break, here is a look at the oil market rebounding today. $108.26 per barrel. we will be right back. ♪

on the upside, but still marginal. when we look at our own business, what is happening, the areas in which we're seeing growth, there is this kind of continual clawing and walking forward of some slight improvement. we expect to see at. ashley: i increasingly here that we are adding more and more part-time workers. the structure of our jobs, economy changing? does that speak to the health of the economy? >> it is clearly an issue. i'm not sure how you get around it because what is happening, companies of all kinds are reacting to what is galling to happen next. i would also like to be clear that there is part-time and temporary. we would expect to see a fair amount of the job growth.
when you looked at what is happening in the companies themselves, they are not going to be seduced into the bitter labor numbers. they are looking specifically at their book of business, demand, and the forces on their own company. they're not going to hire in anticipation. ashley: who is hiring right now? which sector in particular, and are there enough workers to fill the jobs? >> a great question. you get this conundrum. how can we still have on employment. let's say it comes in at seven and a half. we are seeing sectors hiring. business and professional services. the one that is most interesting , we are starting to see in our book of business this wholesale and logistics' pickup which is a good sign. that is a precursor to possibly some other things. companies are still struggling. part of it is geographic. still confidence in the
workforce. there will move and find themselves out of work. that is creating the skills gap. technology is playing a role. harder to be an entry-level employees. ashley: we hear a lot about the large number of people that have simply given up looking for work. >> the looking for work apart is still not the part that we are assuming coming back. it needs to be more appetizing. better wage inflation. you need to see more confidence that this will be lasting. that kind of invisible work force if we go all the way back to it greenspan, it is still there. if it does not come back, it will weigh heavily on the cost side of government programs, so we need more demand a more predictable demand before we start to see that newly created

protests in midtown manhattan, trying to bring a petition to co. board member christopher williams who runs an investment company, he is a board member at walmart. this is being treated not as basically firing up the letter is unknown with protesters affiliated with this. walmart coming the crosser business with a statement about the protests today essentially saying it is being orchestrated by handful of unions that the vast majority of workers are not affiliated in any way with the protests and a black friday protests after thanksgiving, just 100 walmart workers out of 1.3 million, those protests, wal-mart is saying this is made up primarily of union members, stores in 15 cities and made of union activists so we are seeing is tracking this story throughout the day from coast to coast protests being waged
outside wal-mart stores in los angeles, sacramento, you are also going to see boston, chicago, and what they need is a wage increase of $20,000 a year and they also want to essentially get reinstated, 20 workers were allegedly fired because of the black friday protest, disciplinary actions against workers affiliated with the black friday protests, these activists want that reversed and walmart telling fox business of big majority of workers already make $25,000 a year. i will give it back to you, tracking this developing story throughout the day. ashley: walmart workers not the only ones asking higher wages. last week fast-food workers hitting the picket lines asking for more money. if these workers get their way what kind of impact with higher wages and on the economy and the companies they work for?
capital management in person to talk about this and the economy in general. this is a real talker right now. thanks for being here. what is the impact of this? we were talking to austin in the studio, these companies make big money, workers don't get a lot of money, what is wrong with giving them a little tight in wages? >> they do make big money but there are two part of the argument, there is the labor force and if you increase wages you reduce the amount of jobs, most economists will tell you that but look at walmart, have done an amazing job developing low-cost products to consumers, same with mcdonald's. if you increase wages the cost of their product goes up. the union's argument is flawed. they are not looking at the whole picture. if you increase in the costs and increase input costs of meat for hamburgers or oil in wal-mart store the prices go up so it is a short-term argument. ashley: stores could close. more jobs would be lost. >> more jobs would be lost, less employment and think of the technology we have today, look
what happened with the auto industry replaced by automation, you can put kiosks in mcdonald's and less people at the checkout counter. the social argument is it is not a living wage but most of these are part-time entry-level jobs, not meant to be life sustaining jobs and if you want to make more money like all of us try try to move a ladder. ashley: gets you started in your first job, not a career. this, expand a little bit if we can. with the economy in general, drivers of the economy, housing turned around nicely, lately perhaps a little iffy but the automobile sector doing very well the i get the feeling polk of those sectors are slowing down a little bit. what does that do to the economy? >> the housing sector did just a higher interest rates. what we're seeing an interesting statistic, jumbo rate is equivalent to the 30 year fixed so there's confidence the high end buyers are coming in so there is reaction, the ten year pushing 30% today.
ashley: what is that telling us? >> because of this good economic news, and employment numbers this week, the tapering program could accelerate and we have interest rates potentially going up but that reflects a healthy economy. the housing sector has a lot of legs to, due to the home builders and suppliers, maybe not the financing tycoon's despite higher mortgage rates, we are at lows in some parts of the country and pent-up demand similar to autos a lot of pent-up demand, great competition from ford, ford about to surpass toyota and you're seeing a healthy sector that rationalize with less workers delivering a good product. ashley: you mentioned the fed and the bring and the big jobs report tomorrow not expecting any huge surprises. on the downside we could but could see react and what is going on in washington delay capering in the short term? >> i hope not because you would think the fed is not responding
to a short-term capital market moves but there are theories that that is not the case anymore and maybe they're reacting to capital markets but short-term volatility when the missile launch did to potential budget battles, this will be a short-term issue, longer term is the economy and earnings are accelerating in many segments, energy out of housing. ashley: as far sector goes do you like tech? may be financials, regulations they have to live by but those are two sectors that show good growth? >> financial grow because of a low bottom. i would prefer technology because there is a lot of lack of visibility in financials, a lot of uncertainty regulatory, enterprise technology, a lot of revolutionary things going on in the cloud, software is a service and also end of demand from companies that held back on capital expenditure due to a slowing economy and we see companies provide software that held vertically integrate core
petrochemical industry for example making things more productive. we saw productivity numbers go up because american companies in that space make a lot of smart systems, people control things with keyboards, not levers and ranches. ashley: i want to ask about emerging markets taking a beating but there are those who say now there's an opportunity. >> not as a whole. people putting money in the broader aspect clash, different stories in brazil, asia, in eastern asia there will be most of the appeal because they are linked to the u.s. consumer and a lot of ways. ashley: thank you for being here. ok, time warner and cbs finally landing a deal but guess what? two of its tv tie-ins may soon be at war and speaking of the battle gridiron great leasing the and putting on a patch as the nfl season kicks off. we will take you to the companies that is cashing in on their protection as we head to break, let's look at those treasury markets we're talking

fight with time warner cable but the next big cable clash already peer. dennis kneale joins us with the skinny. dennis: one of the most recent times i had the word skinny. the next cable flash in the wall street journal talking about it, espn versus dish network and this could be more bitter and lead to going black even longer than four weeks of cbs so why would that be? you have a dish and charlie, the ceo, cantankerous and recalcitrant. these guys are willing to let channels go dark and say heck with you. last year in a dispute with amc, the walking dead network, they had that channel and its hit shows state of fear four months but espn wants to have a big negotiation and obviously push for a price increase never mind that it is the richest channels so when you have a dish, this
recalcitrant cry, espn owned by one of the most powerful media companies in the world, disney and another commentator for why this fight could get better, included fees for another network, disney's abc, the big broadcaster, cbs just got this huge fee increase from time warner cable after their bitter fight so if you are a fellow broadcaster like cbs you want to say you got to pay more to our stations sell all of these were coming together to make for a real tough fight and now that i have said it -- ashley: who has the upper hand? >> what we are learning from these recent deals is content creators have the upper hand, more people to sell to. carriers have lots of people to buy from but if you are a big brand like espn it gets $5.71 a month for its package of channels per home permanents, cbs getting $0.88 by comparison
even though cbs is watched by five times as many viewers so this is a big clash. the only thing that needs to be solved is i predicted the fight will -- really quickly. the contract expired at the end of this month and that is only a couple weeks from now. ashley: putting on the gloves already. stocks, allen bell does standing by, it is the quiet day but we are looking for a third day of gains. what do you think? >> we are treading water but everyone is waiting for the big jobs number. the markets three days in a row, and 1657 all good signs and you will see a good number that may not be exactly what the market wants but we have a strong jobs
numbers that might indicate capering coming down, you might see a dead tomorrow. ashley: a lot of talk about the yield on the ten year but historically still pretty low. >> without a doubt. 29, it is getting up to that, it is still low but enough to cause jitters down here and you will see movement that the market into those bonds. ashley: thank you for joining us. in the baltimore ravens take on the denver broncos in the first regular-season game every player on the field will be wearing required 5 pad for the first time since the early 90s. jeff flock is cashing in on this new role. jeff: the pad of choice and i will show it to you right here. aaron who is in good shape gives us look at these new fiat had made by company called mcdavid.
