6:03 am
booster shot and the agency recommending half dose for older adults, 65 and older. former boeing pilot charged with fraud, accused of deceiting federal regulators and sending two max jets into failure nose dive. federal prosecutors say that persuaded faa to approve pilot training materials that excluded references to the automated cockpit feature. it was a big piece of the max crashes, 2018 and also the one in 2019 that killed 346 people. well, more than 10,000 john deere workers walking off the job after their union was unable to reach a deal on a new contract.
6:04 am
first major in 35 years. 5% raises to some workers and 6% to others. deere&company wants to keep talking but the next bargaining session next week. there's deere, 3% in trading. what can i say. it's a friday, back over to you. we will see you at the bottom of the hour. american grappling with price hikes. inflation on the rise as we see supply chain bottlenecks and we are facing an energy crisis and in two hours we will get an idea of what consumer spending amid the higher prices. u.s. retail sales last month expected to drop .2%, month over month after we saw rise in august. joining me mahoney asset ken mahoney and joining the conversation former assistant secretary of the treasury monica and wall street journal
6:05 am
assistant editor james freeman. welcome one and all. ken, you say the president needs to start focusing on inflation and not covid. okay, hit me. >> covid obviously very important, of course, but, look the image that is we have seen in los angeles and the ports out there and all of these, you know, bottlenecks, you can see with our own eyes why is this happening, the real issue is the reason why they are stuck there is we have to get trucks there. we don't have enough truck drivers and you have jen psaki telling us this week that they have been working on this issue all year as pinochio nose has been growing. all the 3, producer price index growing at the fastest rate. that's scary because the companies, producers will pass onto consumers, what a better time to pass to consumers is around the holiday time and little scrouge in there, little
6:06 am
grim but this is the time producers are going to say we will not eat this in margins, we will pass to consumers. i suspect another leg up because producers will pass onto consumers. dagen: james, freeman, what can joe biden and company do about the supply chain crisis and inflation because their whole policy, what they are trying to push through congress is vast entitlement culture, vast entitlement expansion that will discourage work which would certainly make the labor shortage worse and they've got a federal reserve that still got the running the printing presses which they clearly like because the fed can monetize the debt, the spending and support the spending from the federal government from the democrats so this is the future unless something really changes in terms of policy out of these liberals, i was going to say
6:07 am
something not nice but i stifled. [laughter] james: well, i'm glad that ken mentioned the trucker shortage. that seems to get a relatively short shrift as the administration talks about the problem at the ports and logistics and supply chains and everything else but i think we shouldn't be surprised when you push a whole lot of money into the economy over the last year and a half but create lots of either encouragements or -- or restrictions on people working. you're going to probably see inflation, you are going to see less productive work that you might have otherwise have had and i think shortages are fairly predictable, so, yeah, we need to go basically in the opposite direction of the bernie sanders plan to kind of intervene in every market and try to fix the greatest economy in the world. we need to just let markets run and encourage people to go back to work and -- and i don't think
6:08 am
bluster and barking from the white house is the reason or is the solution to more supply in the economy. dagen: right. let set up another tack force on that, ken. >> right. dagen: so my prediction is that if the inflation picture continues to worsen, that there will be a scapegoat needed politically and it will be jay powell and he will not get a second term. that's my prediction. it's not based on anything by my own speculation, but i'm sticking to it for the time being. ken? kennedy: it's unbelievable. he had 80% approval, fed powell will go through this thing easy and as you mentioned things are not going so well and instead of
6:09 am
looking at their own policies and a lot of the policies come from the carter administrationment it didn't work then and doesn't work now. look at what happened to opec this week. dependencies in late 1970's, what is the supply, and nudging and can you put more supply out, please. in a few months ago, we are energy dependent to energy independent. you saw what happened in afghanistan, oh, we just have to get out. oh, we just have to get out of fossil fuels and to renewables. like afghanistan, like energy, there has to be transition time and that's what the administration is trying to do too fast and least us in bottlenecks and all the problems, all of the consequences. dagen: it's grotesque. oil on track for gain, oil at $82 a barrel. round number right now but, ken, before we go, this is not something -- again, the reason for them killing the keystone xl
6:10 am
pipeline for stopping new permits for drilling on federal land which again went to the courts but all of this was to fight global warming but then you turn and beg opec to produce more. well, one barrel produced there and one less barrel produced here has nothing, has zero impact on anything to do globally in terms of the climate because, again, it doesn't matter where that oil derrick is or the tail pipe is, it highlight it is utter phoneyness of what this administration is doing and the lack of concern and care for the average american whose stand of live asking reduced and made poorer by every policy coming out of this white house. >> well, you have my blood pressure going in that one. it's, yes, yes, and yes. the middle glass is filling out gas tank and paying 35, $40 per
6:11 am
trip. $600. they want to look at what's going on there. go around the grocery store and that's transactions over $600. we see, we feel it and its own policy, these are self-inflicted wounds that could go the other way. back to my point, impulsiveness, rash, we are not there yet. and the raise is so fast, dagen, because they know midterm elections they will lose it all and they try to get as much as they can in. >> despite the pain caused to regular americans but they also vote too, so watch out. thank you, ken mahoney, great to see you. virgin galactic, delaying space flights until the fourth quarter of next year. press expectation was for the third quarter. the battle over booster shots, the fd approving to reject or approve johnson & johnson
6:12 am
booster, we get medical perspective later this hour. inflation, tennessee congressman weighs in on the supply chain crunch, former small businessman and former white house chief of staff responds to tone deaf tweet on who inflation is really affecting. you don't want to miss it. you're watching mornings with maria live on fox business. ♪ ♪ ♪

6:16 am
7-year-old girl at the border after getting her over the 30-foot wall with a rope ladder. joining me now florida congresswoman homeland security committee member and agriculture committee member kat, congresswoman, thank you very much for being here this morning. you've been to the border three times. this is evidence that the biden administration's policies are allowing people, smugglers to profit from human suffering. >> oh, absolutely, without a doubt. not only just allowing it but encouraging it and when you think about it, biden's administration is really completing the full trafficking circle for the cartels. they are 100% complicit when witnessing the trafficking of the kids. i have been to the border and i have spoken with little kids that have been abused. i have spoken with kids as young as 9. a little girl that was gang raped by cartel members.
6:17 am
it's unconscionable the things that are happening but on top of that you have entities of facebook that have allowed cartels that advertise services on their platform. there's been zero retribution, zero accountability and that is extremely frustrating because you have the cartels that are making out like -- it's incredible the amount of money that they are making, average of $6,000 per individual that they get across. i've stood on the banks of the rio grande and national guard, dps, their hands are tide and thanks to dps and governor abbott are stepping up and arresting individuals that are coming over here because the biden administration they are hell bent on doing thing but enforcing our borders and the laws on the books.
6:18 am
dagen: monica jump in here, the biden administration witnessing the supply chain problem, the ports problem, they jump right on it when they think it's going to hurt them politically but this border patrol, they are just kind of tap-dancing around it and not doing anything because they think it benefits them politically, monica. >> well, in the long-term, dagen, you're exactly right that this will benefit them because they're doing this to flood the zone, they are doing it to flood the country in order to try to get these people eventually on the track to becoming citizens and -- or at least capable of voting and they believe that they'll vote democrat. so this is part of their strategy for a permanent democrat voting majority, but when you take a look at president biden's poll numbers they're cratering across the board, dagen, but in particular on immigration. this has been going on for the last ten months since he's been president and driving the drag on this poll number so now it is becoming a political liability
6:19 am
for them and that's why you're starting to see a little bit of at least thought in the administration with regard to the return to -- remain in mexico policy, excuse me, and maybe some other things but the damage is already done, 1.2 million illegal immigrants who have come in just since january. dagen: congresswoman monica was mentioning this that they are -- the biden administration to revise the remain in mexico policy after it was ordered to reinstate it by a federal judge, would this help congresswoman? >> oh, absolutely, without a doubt and morgan is 100% right. you look at this administration. they are held bent on creating a new reality and -- and i think no one is living in it because the rest of us in america are scratching our heads saying, what the heck are you doing? 1.2 million in the country and they are trying to attach amnesty to reconciliation package. the biden build-back better plan
6:20 am
which is let's build back broke. they want to give amnesty to all of the people who have come here illegally so they have a built-in motor base because their agenda is control if it were anything other than that they would secure border and reinstate mpp policy and would continue building the wall because as every single border patrol agent that's a force multiplier and when you have 75% of your agents processing and baby sitting in the busiest sector that is why we absolutely need every tool in the tool box. it's also making sure that title 42 stays in place. dagen: right. >> we are making it impossible for the border patrol agents to do their jobs and at the end of the day the very basic function of the federal government is national security. we have to do that at the bear minimum and they are failing miserably in doing so. dagen: you throw on vilifying
6:21 am
border patrol on horseback with lies coming from the white house and the president himself. thank you, congresswoman kat cammack. thank you very much for being here. americans fed up with empty shelfs, the hashtag aimed at the president, never go stag to a wedding again. tinder has your back with a new feature making a buzz this morning. we will tell you all about it.
6:22 am
6:23 am
6:24 am
dagen: president biden taking heat for the supply chain crisis after this comment about food supplies when he was a candidate back in may 2020. listen to this. >> we don't have food shortage problems, we have a leadership problem. i'd harness the industry to get food needed and get millions back to a job, it's not rocket science. it's leadership. dagen: so biden is finger
6:25 am
pointing not stopping the hashtag from trending, empty shelves, joe. james, it's about leadership says joe biden. it sure is or lack thereof from him. james: yeah, there was so much confusion contained in that one soundbite. obviously we are not a centrally controlled economy thank goodness, restaurant owners who understand their customers make decisions, the president doesn't harness everyone in industry and push them in a certain direction. i think we are seeing now this -- this sort of white house fantasy that somehow people at wal-mart and target aren't highly motivated to solve the problem of empty shelves and we need a layer of federal bureaucracy but i think it's important to keep expectations low when it comes to the president trying to exert executive leadership over the u.s. economy right now.
6:26 am
he is -- this is his first year in an executive job with executive authority. he's a career senator and then a vice president, fortunately he was never needed to exercise executive authority in that job and i think we should keep expectations low but the main thing he can do is takeaway the incentives for people not to work. we had almost 200,000 people leave the labor force last month. 4 million plus fewer jobs, fewer people working than we had pre-covid so taking away the incentives for people not the be in the workforce should be his number 1 job. dagen: right. not adding additional like multi-trillion dollar incentives to stay out of the workforce and to stay at home. monica, i want to get your reaction to this soundbite from jen psaki yesterday when she was asked about endorsement of a tweet from foreman that said inflation is a high-class
6:27 am
problem. listen to this. >> why would ron tweet that and would you agree that that's -- [inaudible] >> do you think two tweets means more? >> not the first time that twitter has drawn sharp criticism. is that something that the white house is addressing at all given this pushback? >> are we addressing the chief of staff twitter habits is not a top priority i will tell you at this point in time. dagen: well, the retweet said that inflation was a high-class problem, i kind of get what jason was trying to get at but ron you're actually saying that by retweeting, monica, and jen psaki has nothing to say about it. >> well, you know, there's sot criticism too that anybody has been asking questions about ron klein's tweet and president trump was scrutinized over every single tweet he and his white
6:28 am
house issued but nobody allowed to ask any questions about the twitter habits of his white house. look, that was an absolutely tone deaf tweet. you have to understand, like, when you're in a position of authority whether you're white house chief of staff or jason foreman, economy adviser to president obama and vice president joe biden and words matter and will be read a certain way and it was read appropriately, i think, that what ron klein was endorsing was that your skyrocketing grocery and gas prices are a high-class problem and it is absolutely absurd because what we do neglect about inflation and particularly the inflation that is hitting now it it pacts the working class, the middle class, those able to at least withstand the impact of inflation.
6:29 am
it hurt those folks the most. so the language on this was absolutely not helpful and the white house should at least acknowledge that those that they claimed to want to have help. those at the lower end of the income ladder are being impacted and hurt the most and what are they going to do about it. dagen: i guess improvement that ron klein tweeted because he has tendency to retweet joy reed and reuben from the white house so that will make your eyes fall out on the head, some of the things the two ladies have to say. the fallout of botched withdraw to afghanistan, the white house's new plan to get stranded americans out. ♪ ♪ ♪

6:36 am
out, joining me now is hudson institute senior fellow rebecca heinrich's, we do this story to remind people of all of the folks, americans and our allies and our friends who are still in afghanistan, rebecca. >> thank you so much, dagen for covering this. this is a topic that the biden administration obviously wants to get out of the news, out of the headlines and they don't want americans talking about this. it's been a couple of months since we have left afghanistan officially and there are still americans in afghanistan under the rule of the taliban. so the biden administration intends to hope, you know, you see hypotheticals and we would like to get flights leaving afghanistan in the next couple of months. a couple more months of american citizens, permanent residents, green card holders and those who worked with the united states and took a chance with the united states against the taliban are all still stuck there at the mercy of the
6:37 am
taliban until we get them out. dagen: i want to move to the oil and gas situation. you have the white house that took axe to our energy sector. economic driver in this country, a source of prosperity, not just in terms of jobs and economic growth but cheap and plenty full fuel also energy independent, the world's largest producer of oil, it gives us power over other nations on the world stage over nations that rely on oil production for their funding and so it gives us power over nations that hate us. so they take in in the white house a -- an axe to our energy sector. now after begging opec to produce more, the white house is reportedly consulting with oil and gas producers to try and find ways to bring down rising fuel in prices for consumers.
6:38 am
you can't make up this idiocy. the national average for gallon of regular gasoline at 3.30. that's up more than a buck compared to a year ago. heating bills this winter are expected to soar, rebecca, what do you make of this complete mismanagement of one of our greatest resources? >> the biden administration is being controlled by this radical faction of the democratic party that prioritizes almost like a religion environmentalism above everything else even it means working class americans are the ones going to suffer. we are heading into winter, gas prices are going to continue to go up and i keep thinking about how jen psaki said she thought that it would be unfair if companies were to pass on the price to consumers if they were taxed and now how they are doing the same thing to these gas companies. they're asking them to drop the
6:39 am
prices after as you said taken an axe to increase supply. this administration doesn't understand economics 101 or they do understand it and they just don't care. they've made a decision to prioritize these environmentalist groups at the expense of everyday hard-working americans. dagen: james, jump in here. to go through what they went through, they killed the keystone xl pipeline, stopped new oil and gas drilling leases on federal leases which was stopped by a judge. i mentioned this earlier but then in the 3 and a half trillion dollars really $5 trillion bernie sanders blowout that the left is trying to push through, there are royalty and fee increases that again would hurt our oil and natural gas producers on the world stage. >> yeah, many, many incentives in that bill to -- to push the u.s. toward wind and solar power which is very unreliable and
6:40 am
away from natural gas and oil and i think it's not a surprise that u.s. producers, yes, they are being disciplined about their capital expenditures but they have to look down the road and say are we really going to be able to reap the benefits from new investment. i know the president likes to talk about infrastructure but pipelines are infrastructure. refineries are infrastructure, rigs are infrastructure, so let's hope that he can be persuaded to somehow turn away from the sanders' agenda to less u.s. production. dagen: before we go, rebecca, will this skyrocketing price of fuel bills whether it's gasoline, heating oil, natural gas, will this wake up the white house, rebecca, and stop them from governing for greta thunberg?
6:41 am
>> they have to put the squeeze on them. the infrastructure, with infrastructure and pipelines they do care that russian pipeline north stream two, they canceled the americans ability to have cheaper gas in keystone and they green light it which is bad for nato but it does help the russians. dagen: sure does. we have easily and knowingly handed power to nations that hate us in every way. thank you, rebecca heinrich, great to see you. >> good to see you. dagen: coming up laying the ground work for covid boosters. fda set to vote for johnson & johnson low-dose shot. what you need to know next, you're watching mornings with maria live on fox business. ♪ ♪
6:42 am
6:43 am
dagen: first moderna and now johnson & johnson, fda new vote on booster shot for americans, what you need to know. we are back in 2 minutes.
6:44 am
6:45 am
dagen: today another covid booster shot may be approved by the fda. experts are set to vote on the johnson & johnson vaccine. yesterday the panel unanimously approved the moderna booster shot. joining me now one of the
6:46 am
doctors on that panel, dr. levy, pediatric infectious disease expert and the head of the precision vaccine program at boston children's hospital. dr. levy, great to see you this morning. just tell us about what we can expect today. doctor: good morning, dagen, thank you for having me on today. well, as you know the fda panel discussions are live streamed, open to the u.s. public. we had a good session yesterday as you said considering a potential booster for the moderna vaccine and today we will consider potential booster for the johnson & johnson vaccine. to clarify our committee advises fda, fda makes the final decision but yesterday we voted unanimously in favor of moderna boosters for certain populations. americans 65 years and up and those 18 to 64 years of age who have conditions that put them at higher risk for severe covid as
6:47 am
well as people who have frequent exposure and therefore may benefit from a booster. dagen: i have shared this before but my father and he had heart surgery about a year ago, he went ahead and got a booster in like august. he was vaccinated early in the year and i was laughing at him, where did you get the booster, he said, i have a guy. it's a medical professional but he was very -- he's really on the ball about getting it. i was so proud of him on that note. let me talk there's a study, highly anticipated one about mixing and matching covid-19 vaccines. they found the approach to be safe and effective. can you explain this because, see, i had covid in march, got the j&j vaccine as soon as i could after a 90-day period so when i get a booster, i can -- could i go and just get a moderna booster if i wanted? >> well, thank you for that, dagen. this has been a highly
6:48 am
anticipated study as you bring up because americans want to know can i mix and max, can i get one type of vaccine and then can i get another. the studies that came out from the national institutes of health, it's not just been peer reviewed but put on public server suggest that this may be safe to mix and match and those facts look hopeful but we need more research on this and there's not yet public health guidance on how to do this but it is an important study and a step in that direction. dagen: this month pfizer submitted request for vaccine children 5 to 11 and telling governors to start prepare to go vaccinate the children. you're insight into this? >> well, i think that we will have to take it one step at a time with vaccines we start with safety because vaccines we give to healthy people so they better be safe so our committee start
6:49 am
with a heavy emphasis on safety. we need to see the data, the age specific data for the safety and efficacy in children 5 to 11 year's old of age. i believe our committee will meet on the 26th of october to look at the data provided by pfizer the sponsor that's asking the committee to review that data. and i haven't seen the data yet so i don't want to comment on it. do i think that -- and i know that coronavirus does infect children, can make them quite sick and children can also spread the infection to others, so it is desirable to have such a pediatric vaccine available but we have to see the data. dagen: i want to get your insight into this as well before we go. former president bill clinton has been admitted to a california hospital this week for sepsis and i believe the sepsis is a result of a urinary track infection.
6:50 am
can you tell us exactly what sepsis is and he's being treated with antibiotics, his white blood cell count has come down so the news is good but this is something that, you know, really concerns everyone. doctor: thank you, dagen, and we wish president clinton a speedy recovery. sepsis is the body's exaggerated response to an infection typically a bacterial infection. from what you're telling it sounds like there were bacteria in urinerary track and over a quarter of millions die every year of sepsis so this is a medical emergency and i'm happy he made it to the hospital in a timely way and he's getting better. dagen: me too. and one thing and i'm clearly
6:51 am
not a doctor, dr. levy. one thing -- and this is for any like the child of any older person, that when you get intervenous antibiotics can cause destruction of good bacteria in the gut so certain things to look out for, i will leave you with that. >> for sure. we have bacteria that live in our gut and when we take any biotica we change the good bacteria and there are potential side evenings of that but right now the priority is to clear the bacteria out of the blood stream and get the patient better. dagen: i only share that because it happened to my mother. that's why i share that with audience.
6:52 am
it's great to see you always drh for being here. we will see you soon. doctor: always a pleasure, dagen. thank you. dagen: take care. taking a chance on plus one. tinder's new feature will make sure that you never go stag to a wedding again. we will tell you all about it next. our experts help your business succeed. in any market, any language, any industry.

"mornings with maria" live right now. some of the top stories we're following this morning. former president bill clinton is receiving treatment at a hospital in california for a non-covid related infection. not a viral but bacterial. cheryl casone has more. cheryl: it is one of those infections, dagen, good morning to you, as you faux, that a lot of americans actually suffer from in hospitals. the former president's doctors say that he is in good condition, releasing this
7:02 am
statement. president clinton was taken to uc irvine medical center and diagnosed with an infection. he was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and add a ministered iv antibiotics and fluids. his white blood cell count trending down and he's responding to the antibiotics well. a source says it was a urinary tract infection that developed into a broader infection, reportedly this is sepsis. he had heart surgery back in 2004. he had stents inserted in 2010. well, white house press secretary jen psaki defending ron klain's twitter habits saying the tweets are, quote, not a top priority after the chief of staff claimed inflation is a problem for the rich. klain retweeted this, adding emphasis, most of the economic problems we're facing, inflation, supply chains, etcetera, are high class problems. we wouldn't have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10%.
7:03 am
we would instead have a much worse problem. well, psaki added that klain has the right to free speech. not surprisingly, the tweet has drawn outrage from republicans. well, today another covid booster shot is set to be considered by the fda a, experts set to vote on an extra dose of the johnson & johnson vaccine. yesterday an fda panel approved a booster shot of moderna. the agency recommending a half dose of that vaccine be given to older americans, those 65 and older as well as those at risk. moderna stock is up 3% on this news. then there is this, a former boeing pilot has been charged with fraud accused of deceiving federal regulators about a flight control system later blamed for sending two jets into fatal nose dives. he was indicted on six counts of fraud by a texas grand jury yesterday.
7:04 am
prosecutors say he persuaded the faa to approve pilot training materials that excluded references to the automated cockpit feature that was later blamed for the crashes. those are some of your headlines from here. dagen: thank you, cheryl. we'll see you in half hour. time for the word on wall street, top investors watching your money this morning. joining me, chief economist lindsey piegza, capital management partner and portfolio manager joanne feeney and financial ceo jay hastra chelli.we had strong earnings fm several big banks, investors putting inflation fears aside for now. lindsey, what is your current view of the inflation picture? and again, stocks versus treasuries are a better bet in inflationary times because companies can raise prices. >> absolutely. what we saw this week is the
7:05 am
latest read on inflation from a consumer standpoint and producer prices continue to rise. yet the message from our officials from the federal reserve, from treasury secretary janet yellen continues to be one of transitory, suggesting that price pressures will prove temporary. essentially as the economy recalibrates, as the bottlenecks are smoothed, price pressures will come back down to a 2% level. while the message coupled with the expectation of the fed's taper may be enough for investors at this point, to quell investor fears. we know inflation is hitting businesses and consumers here and now. squeezing profit margins, eating into consumer wallets and by extension, then, undermining the prospect force a more robust growth profile as we look out to the end of the year and further into the new calendar year of 2022. dagen: i want to ask you something real quick, lindsey, before we move on.
7:06 am
there was something dianne swan, long-time economist said, that stagflation is not the right word, that a major difference from 1970s is that 80% of salaries were tied to the consumer price index then and that is not the case now. is she right or wrong? >> well, i think regardless of what we're talking about, the academic definition of stagflation, for the average american this means that at the same time we're paying higher prices for goods and services in the marketplace, we're also suffering the effects of a slower economy. so for the average american, regardless of the definition of stagflation, this is going to feel like a double whammy going forward. dagen: that's who we care about. that's who we are. regular folks, right? lindsey, thanks. joanne, a bunch of new economic data is coming out at the bottom of the next hour. we get retail sales for september, plus import and export prices, giving us a better look into the supply problems, the inflation story, this comes on the heels of the
7:07 am
federal reserve mince from -- minutes from last month revealing a strong consensus that it's time to start tapering. lindsey mentioned that. your thoughts, joanne. >> the inflation issue is clearly one that investors need to have top of mind and they need to make sure their portfolios are positioned with stocks that are going to do better if inflation or when inflation and interest rates, more importantly, begin to rise again. we should expect some bumpiness in had these retail numbers, covid was a pretty big force in september, so we're expecting these numbers to come down a little bit. and also when you think about inflation, you have to recognize that it's still strong demand that's driving inflation higher. so the underlying production economy is quite healthy. firms are producing as as much as they can. but there are shortages out there that are driving up prices. the real economy is doing he'll well. that's a good investment environment for investors but on the other hand we do think it's likely, really possible that inflation could get worse before it gets better and the reason
7:08 am
for that is that the housing cost increases have not yet fully filtered into the inflation numbers. and that shelter inflation is starting to work its way in so while shortages persist, inflation could get worse. investors need to be ready for a little bit of a bumpy road ahead i think. dagen: it is a great hardship that i've witnessed firsthand where people -- i know many people who have had to move because their rents were jacked up so much that they couldn't afford their rents and they had to relocate to different parts of the city or outside of the city. of course this is a new york centric problem but it's one that's filtering out across the country. jay, moving on to you. we're wrapping up the first week of third quarter earnings season, goldman sachs scheduled to report ahead of the opening bell this morning. what are you expecting to see here and when big technology stocks start reporting later this month? >> yeah, listen, the banks reported this week, numbers were well. we expect the same out of
7:09 am
goldman sachs. they're going through a transition of moving towards a more consumer-based business. we expect higher interest rates and, you know, the additional volatility of the past few months to help drive goldman earnings. but when you take a look at the way the financials impact the tone of the market, it's not always a high correlation. what we found to be a little more impactful is the tone of tech earnings. leading into tech earnings historically speaking the market can be chop hey. obviously this week was a strong week but the first large tech company reports on the 25th that's took. in that week we have apple, google and microsoft jammed in the four day period and what we found is typically after those groups report, after the first one of those companies report, the market tends to push a little higher, seven out of the eight a last quarters, seven out of the last eight quarters the market has moved higher. the one time it hasn't has been
7:10 am
q1 of 2021 this year, when interest rates were causing tech stocks to feel some pressure. we're expecting a little chop coming into earnings on the 25th which is when facebook has its announcement. but after that, history tells us that the market tends to press a little higher. dagen: jay, great insight. you too, lindsey. and joanne, thank you all three for being here this morning. have a wonderful weekend. >> thank you. dagen: much more ahead this morning. coming up, former white house chief of staff nick mulvaney responds to ron klain's tone deaf retweet. then bill simon is here on the supply chain crisis and retailers, what they're doing to ensure you can get gifts this holiday season. we're talking tech, microsoft tells china linkedin is off the table in china and bitcoin nears $60,000. we get into it. joining the conversation all morning long, monica crowley and

7:15 am
i'll small business, did you not? i just worry more than -- whether it's supply chain crisis and the ability to find workers, increased wages, raised prices, in all of this it is small businesses from coast to coast that are really getting, for lack of a better word, screwed. >> i agree with you so much and i was thinking exactly your thoughts this morning, dagen. here's the situation. when my wife and i operated a small business, everything mattered to the bottom line. there's no margin of error really for a small business. when costs go up and we're seeing costs skyrocket in this economy worse than we've seen in 40 years. thank goodness we started our business in 1987 and during the tail end of the reagan years and a lot of things were good. god forbid if we started it in the carter years where we remembered those crazy inflation rates and the stagnation of the economy. but it's small businesses, but i'm hearing from manufacturers
7:16 am
and distributors who are begging us to do something, inflation is out of control. biden just does not perceive this. his administration keeps going in the wrong direction. i'm concerned. dagen: monica, jump in here. having worked in the treasury department, there's really nothing that this administration can say that will change the reality that people are feeling every day. monica: well, that's right. i mean, the average american is living this economy on the ground every day and these inflationary spikes are affecting everyday products so every time you go to the grocery store, every time you go to fill up your gas tank, you're seeing it. and it's squeezing the poor, the working class, and the middle class most of all. so, look, we have pumped so much money down into the system over the last year and-a-half because of the pandemic and what we know is that emergency level spending in the context of an actual emergency, like last year, is
7:17 am
justified and necessary. but the biden administration and the democrats in congress have kept up the emergency level spending absent the emergency. so not only do you have the supply chain disruptions that are driving up prices, but you have so much money sloshing around the system. democrats want to spend even more. and of course it's impacting those at the lower end of the income spectrum you most of all, those are the folks that the democrats profess to champion. it's hurting those folks. dagen: i want to talk about another misstep or disaster, rather, is biden's border policy. the biden administration is set to bring back president biden -- president trump's border policy, the remain in mexico policy in the middle of next month but this is after the biden and company were ordered to reinstate it by a federal judge. will this make a difference in terms of beginning to secure our
7:18 am
border? >> it certainly will and i'm so glad that you said that. the united states supreme court actually compelled them to do that. they didn't want to do that. in my role as the ranking member, the highest republican on the homeland security appropriations subcommittee, i have add he vo kateed for this -- advocated for this policy along with a reinstatement of the trump era policies to secure the border. let's be honest with people. we had secured the border, crossings were low. if we talk to the throngs of people coming over illegally, they're honestly telling people that joe biden invited them into this country. they have been told by criminals, coyotes and cartels, that they are welcome here without any problem. we have people from haiti who were in brazil and chile coming over and now are sitting back in haiti because they were duped, not only by the cartels but by the biden administration. we need a total recalibration, whether it's the domestic
7:19 am
economy, foreign policy. think about if france takes their ambassador away. and clearly on the border. this is a crisis everywhere we look and the biden administration tries to change narrative to narrative. the narrative right now is failure. the american people need to demand more. dagen: james freeman, jump in here. james: yeah, thanks. i'm also kind of wondering about the role of the government of mexico in all this. there was an interesting piece in the dallas morning news this week, suggesting that part of the reason why you're seeing this increase in migration is whether it's an overall policy or just kind of a drift, there seems to be less cooperation from the government of mexico. is that how you see it? >> yes. as a matter of fact, mexico has a problem on its southern border. we just received a briefing, nonclassified briefing so i can talk with you about it, from border patrol people at the highest levels.
7:20 am
mexico has its own problems. fortunately, they are sitting down with us now and speaking again. but remember, president trump did it the right way. he didn't ask mexico. he told mexico. look, you're going to do this, this or this or we're going to do this, this and that and they understood that. it was good for mexico. it was good for the united states. it curbed illegal immigration in the country. right now they're pouring across and the worse news is more folks are coming. yes, mexico has its own internal problems and hopefully they will work with us to curve it. dagen: congressman chuck fleischman thank you for being here. coming up, the virginia gubernatorial race neck in neck, democrats are bringing m the heavy hitters it's not just joe biden that's unpopular in virginia, it's mcauliffe, a former governor there. no bones doubt it, noodles the

dagen: democrats are reportedly hitting the panic button over the virginia governor's race. polls show that democrat terry mcauliffe and republican glen youngkin are neck in neck. the latest fox news poll, 51 to 46. margin of error is 3 november 3f percentage points. prominent democrats are trying to boost mcauliffe's chances, you have president joe biden, former president obama, speaker nancy pelosi and stacy abrams expected at events this weekend.
7:25 am
white house press secretary jen psaki playing down the idea that the election is a big deal, saying elections are often not a bellwether. she is wrong, james freeman. it was announced tuesday morning that president obama was going to campaign for mcauliffe and then all of a sudden by that afternoon like before 5:00, oh, joe biden's going too. what do you make of all of this? james: yeah, i think it's a real sign of weakness for mcauliffe because i generally don't see virginia as a bellwether. i think as you know, it has really been trending left in recent elections but the swamp, the population of government workers and people who benefit from government contracts in northern virginia has boomed so much that i think democrats really have a structural advantage in that state. so for youngkin to be competing
7:26 am
i think is impressive, it is a sign of mcauliffe's weakness many if youngkin is going to win, i think it's going to come down to the issues about schools and whether parents should have a say in what their kids learn and whether a lot of -- even maybe democratic government workers in northern virginia say this education policy is too radical. i don't want my kids being taught to hate each other and i want to be able to have some say in what they learn. dagen: right. that is an issue with what's going on in louden county and particularly in fairfax county, which the journal has written about extensively. what is happening at thomas jefferson high school, just as a microcosm of the overall movement. this is not about white parents, it's about asian american parents, parents of color, who are very upset about the kind of watering down of admission standards and just a crackdown on school of choice and
7:27 am
mcauliffe when he was governor, he vetoed three school choice bills and then adding insult to injury, monica, there's a quote from terry mcauliffe at the debate between youngkin and him, i don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach. that might be the nail in the mcauliffe coffin, figuratively speaking. monica: yeah, i mean, absolutely, dagen and that comment actually had terry mcauliffe canceling himself in this race. education is one of the driving topics in this campaign, as well as the economy and covid and covid restrictions. but education is really driving a lot of people in this race. and james is right that bringing in the democratic heavy-hitters like obama and biden and mrs. biden, the first lady, that does show weakness on the part of mcauliffe but it also shows weakness on the part of
7:28 am
president biden. all of these races now across the country are nationalized, including the virginia governor's race. there's another poll, a poll that was released last night, dagen, that shows mcauliffe actually trailing youngkin, it's a razor thin lead for youngkin but youngkin is leading in that poll. so it is about even. but the problem for the democrats is that all of the energy and enthusiasm is with the republicans, particularly in this off election year in virginia. dagen: and i'll point out, newt gingrich tweeted this this morning that it's not -- and mcauliffe was caught on camera talking about biden was not that popular in virginia. in fact, biden's popularity is at 48% or excuse me favorability in virginia is at 48%. mcauliffe is at 42. so it's mcauliffe who is his own problem. what he says and what he did when he was the governor last
7:29 am

cheryl: welcome back, i'm cheryl casone, some of the top stories we're watching for you this morning. the immediate threat of the debt crisis has been averted setting up a showdown for december. president biden signing a bill into law that's going to raise the nation's debt limit until early december. the $480 billion increase passed by the house on tuesday after being passed along party lines by the senate last week. well, former boeing pilot charged with fraud, accused of deceiving federal regulators about a flight control system, later blamed for sending two 737 max jets into fatal nose dives. he was inindicted on six counts of fraud. prosecutors say he persuaded the
7:33 am
faa to approve pilot training materials that excluded references to the automated cockpit feature that was blamed in the two fatal crashes, 346 people died. well, butterball is recalling more than 14,000 pounds of ground turkey over fears they may be contaminated with plastic. the ground turkey products were sold under the farm to family and kroger brands as b j'ses and kroger stores across the country. they can be identified by the number esp37245 located inside the usda mark of inspection. then there is this, charlie brown may not see the great pumpkin this halloween. a pumpkin shortage is hitting the nation due to weather conditions, shipping problems and in some areas a fungus. prices are jumping about 7% over last year. usually about a billion pumpkins are produced each year mainly in illinois, followed by
7:34 am
california, indiana, michigan, and texas, dagen but not so much this year. could we be short on anything else at this point? my lord. back to you. dagen: i thought with that lead you're going to tell me that charlie brown had been canceled for some reason. cheryl: well, stand by. i'm sure that will happen. dagen: lucy, she was always not very nice. thank you, cheryl. white house press secretary jen psaki defending ron klain's twitter habits after the white house chief of staff claimed this week -- he retweeted a tweet from jason furman that said inflation was a problem for the rich. listen to this. >> why would ron klain word on tweetthat? would you agree, that's a little tone deaf. >> you think two tweets mean more. >> it's not the first time that ron klain's twitter has drawn criticism is that something the white house is addressing right now. >> are we addressing the chief of staff's twitter habits? it's not a top priority i would tell you at this point in time. dagen: joining me former white
7:35 am
house chief of staff himself, mick mulvaney. not under this administration. mick, good to see you. but the retweet was -- i mean, it said that it's a high class problem, inflation. i kind of understand what jason furman was getting at. but ron klain has gotten in in a weird habit of retweeting not jason but some brett odiu -- pretty odiuos people. what is you ron klain's motivation to stay on twitter all the time? >> well, good morning, dagen, by the way, thanks for having he me. the question i asked myself when i saw that come out yesterday, where does he find the time? if you're doing the job of the chief of staff, you would be hard-pressed to find the time to tweet during the day. look, i saw the tweet, high class problems. if he meant that it's a problem only for the rich, then he probably should be fired. because that's just so tone deaf, it's so limousine liberal, it may end up causing democrats
7:36 am
vote in virginia in a few weeks and again in the midterms. if instead he meant that this was a problem that was better than having high unemployment, then that's just misreading what unemployment is. everybody knows that unemployment could go to zero if people just stopped looking for work. so it's bad on every single level and reaffirms why chiefs of staffs should be running the white house and not tweeting during the day. dagen: well, you would assume that ron klain is one of the people in the room when all of these decisions are getting made and if these problems persist, there are not going to be store shelves full of toys come christmas. inflation is spiking. wages so far this year, since president biden was inaugurated, wages adjusting for inflation have fallen 2%. so you would think if ron klain doesn't focus on his job and get
7:37 am
off the twit-sphere, then he might be shown the sidewalk and soon. >> your job as chief of staff is to make the president look good. it's really hard right now to do that with joe biden. the supply chain difficulties are real. they're not going to go away because there was a press conference yesterday. look, i'll give credit where credit is due. the agreement with the unions to go for 24/7 at long beach, the agreement with private corporations to go to 24/7 as we get to christmas, that's a good move. it's just scratching the surface. the supply chain problems are not the only thing leading to shortages and inflation. there are structural difficulties coming out of washington, d.c. it's harder for people to go to work because of the covid rules. it's easier for people to stay home because of the labor rules. it's not just because the port isn't open enough hours during the day. so it was a move in the right direction yesterday for joe biden. but if he or ron klain thinks they solved the problem they're going to have a difficult time the next couple months and the last thing they need is to be taking these sort of comments about rich people and
7:38 am
misunderstanding unemployment numbers. not a really good day for joe biden or my success susser, ron klain. i bet they wish they had one over across the board. dagen: james freeman, get in here. james: thanks. i just think we all remember ronald reagan or someone saying inflation is the beef of the middle class. this is a very regressive tax. and so it's not a rich person's problem, really. it's a problem for people who have to devote a lot of their income to things like food and housing and energy. .dagen: follow up on that, mic. i remember jimmy carter. i remember growing up in the '70s. so i recall firsthand the hardship it put on my parents who were running a wholesale grocery business, individually and as a business. >> it's real. and by the way, most people know that. i guess the only people that don't know that are jason furman and ron klain if they are saying this is something that only hits
7:39 am
the upper class. that's a detached sort of reality. it hits the middle class, it hits the lower classes, especially hits retirees and elderly harder than other folks. it can be good for rich people if you already own a bunch of assets, own a bunch of property and buildings and those properties are now worth more, you actually could benefit under certain circumstances from inflation. so again, there's nothing good that comes out of this twitter yesterday, either he was wrong because he was talking about only rich people or of he was wrong because it's a good problem to have, which it's not. if he goes back and looks under donald trump we had 3 or 4 million more people working than are working right now. yet we didn't have inflation. so it's wrong at a bunch of different levels and could be repercussions inside the white house and outside the white house in the elections in the weeks to come. dagen: under the trump administration's policies, less regulation, lower taxes, you had the lowest poverty rate since records started, records were starting being kept in the
7:40 am
1950s and you had the highest inflation adjusted income or of real income since 1967. monica: yeah. we know what works, dagen. tax cuts, regulatory relief, fairer trade deals and unleashing americans' great energy sector. president trump did all of those things and delivered a booming economy as a result and it lifted all boats. so we saw historically low unemployment rates for every demographic in america, african-americans, asian americans, latino americans, women, veterans, americans with disabilities and we also saw the poverty rate, particularly for african-americans at historic lows so we know what works but the democrats in office are not about policies that actually work and serve the american people. those policies are about fundamentally transforming the u.s. economy. dagen: mick, i'm going to give you final word. where do we go from here as a country in terms of the supply
7:41 am
chain crunch, inflation? what do you see in the months ahead? >> ultimately it's going to be up to the voters. elections have consequences which is why the election in virginia is so critical. i disagree with freeman a little bit. i think virginia can and will be a bell weather this year. yes, it's a blue state. yes, it's heavily democratic in the northern virginia suburbs. but it was very close four years ago, the last time i think that mcauliffe ran and i think if the republicans even come close in that race, it's going to send shivers through the democrat party nationwide. that election, the state legislative bodies up in new jersey will be seeing this as a bellwether. people are going to understand that votes make a difference. if they like what they're seeing they'll vote democrat. and if they wonder maybe we were better off under president trump then i think you'll see an outcome in favor of the republicans. dagen: youngkin his platform is

of the moment. he's going to get rid of the recent gas tax increase in the state, he's going to get rid of the recent grocery -- well, repeal the grocery tax in the state. so it's about parents, power over their children, and inflation. before we go, mick, what's your dog's name? >> that's hank and i've done these television programs now for about 18 months and he's never wondered in -- wandered in. he came in to do commentary on ron klain's tweet and even hank thought it was a bad idea for the chief of staff to tweet. dagen: i just loved it. i didn't say anything when he wandered in the room. he clearly opened the door with his head and came in. looks like he was getting a toy maybe and trotted on back out. so god bless. >> at least he was quiet. dagen: god bless hank and a god bless all dogs and dog owners. because if you don't love dogs, something is really wrong with you. mick mulvaney, thanks so much. coming up, microsoft moving

china, microsoft will shut down the social media platform there as the country expands its corporate crackdown. linkedin was the last major u.s. social media platform operating in the country. twitter and facebook had been blocked for more than a decade. tech analyst, pete pashal joins us now. pete, not a surprise. what do you make of this move? >> good morning. so this is -- you know, this is a movie we've seen before, as you noted facebook and twitter don't operate in china for similar reasons and a decade ago google was trying to establish its presence in china but because of certain censorship restrictions that the chinese government imposed on them, they really just couldn't make it work. now, the difference here is linkedin has been operating in china for a while, it's been there since 2014, before microsoft acquired them and has been operating decently since then. this is all part of the recent chinese crackdown on tech
7:48 am
companies and making sure they are serving the chinese government and not the other way around. so one, they're reasserting their dominance but also they're setting restrictions around data and wanting a company, a tech company that operates within china to make sure their data is accessible and basically can be given over to the chinese government at any time. it's really understandable that linkedin wasn't able to make that sort of arrangement work in addition to the censorship that they put on influencers and people speaking out on the network. dagen: it raises the entire issue of the cost of doing business with the communist party of china for americans and it means jeopardizing your relationship with american customers. it raises a whole host of -- >> there's a real reputational risk. dagen: exactly. bitcoin topping $60,000 overnight as the securities and exchange commission is poised to allow the first bitcoin futures etf as the ceo of coin base
