tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News September 2, 2022 1:00pm-2:01pm PDT
unvaccinated. they're killing people. >> martha: we just have 20 seconds here. your reaction to what he said in july of 2021 from the president, sir. >> it's interesting you pulled that clip. it's that response from president biden that the surgeon general was contacted by facebook and they went on trying to deplatform information. >> martha: thanks, eric, for being here today. >> neil: will we know? will former president donald trump get his special master to look at everything the government seized from his home? because we're learning a lot more than we thought was seized from his home. this much we do know thus far. the same florida judge set to make that decision unsealing a laundry list of every i'm temporary that fbi agents took from that mar-a-largo raid. man, did they take a lot. can you say thousands of documents?
and it's fuelling many more questions. what is in them, what is behind the empty folders and what really was going on there. meantime, there's this. americans taking to the skies and taking on turbulence before they even get up in the air. crowds at airports building and a lot of flights delaying. how you should be preparing. we got you covered with madison alworth in tampa on how flyers are holding up, grady trimble in chicago on those that prefer to drive are paying up and the inevitable professor dave dotson on why surging prices have so many down and out. i'm neil cavuto. let's begin with what is happening at tampa international airport, a metaphor on the crowded skies and getting more crowded at airports. what do you have, madison? >> hi, neil. so 12.6 million americans are expected to fly through our u.s. airports this labor day weekend and around 20% of them should
expect delays. that's because right now one in five flights are delayed. now, that is an improvement from earlier this summer. we're still a bit above 43 pandemic levels when just one in seven flights were delays. i want to bring you back to earlier this summer. we got a report from the department of transportation. from may to june, there was a 35% increase in air travel service complaints. that's around 270% above prepandemic levels. it's been a summer of struggle when it comes to airports when it comes to delays and cancellations. that's why we're seeing airlines step up to the plate. so for those facing delays or cancellations, these airlines after pressure from the departments of transportation are doing something about it. american, united and southwest will provide hotel rooms and meals for stranded passengers if the problems could have been prevented by the airlines. that does not include weather
delays. delays have gotten better over the summer but passengers are not the only ones complaining. off duty pilots picketed at 13 airports to demand increased compensation amid a pilot shortage. prices have also improved over the summer. good news. but there's still room for improvement there as well. take a listen. >> prices this labor day were significantly lower than other long weekends this summer but are still about 20% higher than in 2019. 2019, the average ticket price for a labor day weekend is up about $225. this year it's closer to $280. >> so demand is still there. we are seeing less flights now compared to prepandemic. hopper says that's not because of a lack of demand but because airlines have taken so many flights off of the schedule because of the pilot shortage and staffing shortage to avoid problems. fingers crossed this weekend. if you're in the 12.6 million travel category, they're hoping
they're one of the lucky ones not in the 20% that should be seeing delays. neil? >> neil: thanks. let's go to o'hare airport with garrett tenney. >> this is supposed to be the busiest labor day travel weekend since before the pandemic. as madison said, 13 million americans are expected to fly between thursday and monday. we spoke to a handful of them to hear what their holiday travel experience has been like so far. >> keeping my fingers crossed for being there early and on time. >> air travel is getting back to normal finally. >> the perfect time to do it. i might as well take it for labor day. >> we started in l.a. to come to chicago to go to munich to go to italy. we find out on flight that both of our conflicting flights were cancelled. >> i'm tired, i'm hungry. i want a deep dish pizza if i'm
stuck here. >> it's important to note deep dish pizza will not sow both of those. you can be tired or hungry. after deep dish, you don't solve both of them. this surge is pushing prices up. the average lowest air fare is 30% more than 2020. the $233 average for a midrange hotel is 53% higher. rental cars are up almost 32%. >> people have spent two years of pandemic restrictions and lockdowns and they're just ready to get out there, reconnect with their loved ones. not only are we anticipating this labor day will be a busy time for travelers, so will the rest of the year. >> martha: as madison mentioned a bit of good news, the prices of flights are expect to go down. the only down side is the price of deep dish pizza is not
expected to do the same. neil? >> neil: we got it in reverse. garrett, thank you very much. garrett tenney. we just want to let you know the airline industry is trying to make good on promises if you get flight delayed or cancelled, they will try to stand by, offer you a meal tickets. we'll be exploring that more tomorrow with front tear airlines ceo barry biffle on this. he will be my special guest on my weekend show at 10:00 a.m. eastern time. also, getting you through this if you're trying to drive. as prices have come down, they're still pricey and that's not stopping a lot of folks taking to the road. grady trimble on that in chicago. hi, grady. >> hey, neil. aaa says the vast majority of people travelling this labor day weekend will take a car, but some people, a lot of them actually, are trying to stay put
entirely. a cars.com survey says of those not going anywhere, about 1/4 of them say the main reason for that is because of high gas prices. take a look at those prices. the national average for a gallon of gas is $3.80. the bad news, gas prices are still historically high. that is 62 cents more than a year ago. the good news is that they have fallen nor 11 weeks in a row. while the white house has taken credit for the drop, the biden administration is not responsible. instead, demand here in the u.s. and overseas has softened and americans have been driving less, taking shorter trips because of high prices. aaa says we're cutting back on spending in other areas to make up for high fuel prices. the people we spoke to said they're not going on a big trip this labor day for two main reasons. they want to avoid everybody else that is traveling and they want to avoid the high prices at
the pump. >> barbecuing at home, having family over instead of taking trips, it's going to be crowded out there. >> martha: i'm laying low, staying out of the crowds and saving my money. >> if you have a car like ours where your gas is like 93 or so, you're not going to want to drive too far. you're going to want the stay within local distances. >> and also today, the g-7 countries announced a plan to put a price cap on russian oil. the goal of that plan is to limit revenues that are fuelling the kremlin's war in ukraine. but experts say if it backfires, it could send global oil markets in turmoil, neil. that could cause prices at the bump to do a u turn and start climbing again. >> neil: grady, we hope to hold off on that part of the story. thanks very much. fears about inflation riling investors again today. what looked like a turn-around
of about 375 points for a while, we got over 400 points up on the dow and everything went south. there's a reassessment going on here with an employment report that came in with almost a goldilocks reading of the economy. not too strong, not to awful. a lot of people read into the fact that we gained 300,000 jobs and some inflation components in that were advancing but not at the rate we had been, maybe we were over the hump and the fed might cool it. they reassessed that and the markets were down. the third straight weeks a tough weeks for the markets. the nasdaq is now in correction territory, which means a fall of 10% or more from highs reached a little more than 3 1/2 weeks ago. let's get the read from school of business lecture professor, dave dotson. one of the smartest people i know. he can make sense of this. professor, good to have you. markets are worried about
inflation. average folks are seeing inflation. better than it was, not as great it was a year or so ago but you can take what you can get. that seems to be the only list bastion of stability right now. what's going on? >> yeah, i mean, the stock market was crazy today. it was schizophrenic. my own read on this is this. as people get past the job reports, they focus on what is the most important part of the jobs reports, the difference between jobs available and job seekers. the difference is 2 to 1. by the way, neil, historically, that's about a 5% difference. so we're looking at a 200% difference. there's no way that you can have a labor market that has that much of a miss match and not continue to fuel inflation. i think people started to focus on that. the one thing that is brilliant about the jobs report is that it's not like the cpi or the gdp that is a trailing indicator. the jobs report is our single best leading indicator of what
will happen over the next 100 days. >> neil: it's interesting about some of the other numbers you were referring to, professor, we have another million people that have quit the work force. they think they can do well on their own. 11 million job openings out there. that is the pressure right now in order to tempt them back, wages have to go up, right? >> oh, absolutely. that is the tension that is going to be driving wages up. i don't see how wages can't be driven up. i was talking to a friend of mine. he sells chocolate doughnuts. he wants to stay open, his normal hours. he can't. he can't get his doughnut shop staffed. that is what is happening across america right now. the only way that you're going to get people to come back to work and work more hours and have more staffing is to pay more. so neil, i agree with you. >> neil: one of the things, too, that is interesting in the employment report itself, professor, virtually every sector of the economy still
chugging along. not chugging the way it did some months ago, but when you're averaging this type of job growth and still seeing wage growth of about 5.2% or so, that is an inflationary worry and probably reason for the federal reserve to stick to its plan to hike rates, right? now, the question is if it's another 3/4 point hike next month or later this month, that would be the third such hike in a row. eventually that has to hit these very numbers, doesn't it? >> oh, yeah. as you peel apart the numbers, what you saw is that of course the july and the august and september numbers prices compared to a year ago will be higher. what i'm focused on is that rate of change going up or down. of course, with fuel prices, they're coming down. with labor prices, they continue to go up. they continue to go up at a very troubling rate. so for me, the trillion dollar
question is this, neil. i believe strongly that wages are going to go up, that energy costs are going to come down, the supply chain problems are getting solved and so you don't have to pay a premium to get a trash exacter. whether that will work out to a neutral pricing regime, then i think we're in great shape. i would nominate powell to be man of the year. because he landed this crazy plane. i'm not sure that will be the case. >> neil: he has found his inner pole volcker. he's raising rates fairly aggressively. the last 4 meetings, more than two points. the rate he's going, we'll have higher interest rates by the end of the year. you think we'll have inflation more under control by the end of the year? >> yeah, i would be shocked if we don't have additional rate increases, especially because of this jobs report. namely what we talked about, this mismatch between job seekers and jobs available. i don't see how we're going to get through the end of the year without more rate increases.
the question is it is going to make that much of a difference. if you increase rates 1/2%, is that doing to change behavior in a way to cool down the economy? >> neil: professor, i wish i had professors like you in college. i didn't. but i learned a lot in every visit. have a safe weekend. >> you too. >> neil: we're still waiting for the special master, another arbiter looking at the documents that they seized from donald trump's mar-a-largo estate. we just found out today that, well, there's more documents than we thought. try about 11,000 of them after this. making a home means making decisions. lots of them. so, we promise to be here, with prices you'll love, if you just promise to put your heart into it. seasons change, but our lowe's price promise is everyday. shop fall at lowe's today.

>> neil: still waiting. will it come before the labor day weekend? a lot of people thought we would get the ruling on appoint ago special master, a third party, an arbiter to go over all of the documents taken from donald trump's mar-a-largo home. a lot more than we thought right now. mark meredith is following all of this in washington. mark? >> good afternoon. seems like every day if not every hour we're learning something new about what the government found at former president trump's home. following a judge's ruling, the justice department release at more detailed inventory of what
was removed from mar-a-largo. they found multiple documents with secret and confidential markings without the classification markings. not to mention clothing, press material and empty folders. the empty folders is getting attention because they had return to staff military secretary. there was nothing in the folders. court records show lawyers and the former president spent month going back and forth as the national archives was trying to recover material from the trump presidency. today the former attorney general in the trump administration, bill barr, reacted to the government's actions. he says given the time line he has seen, the government went to great lengths to avoid conflict with trump and his legal team. >> people say this was unprecedented. it's unprecedented for a president to take this classified information and put them in a country club. okay? how long is the government is
going to try to get that back? they jaw boned a year. they were deceived on the voluntary actions taken. they went and got a subpoena. they were deceived on that. >> we are also still waiting to see if and when a judge in florida may rule on trump's request to have a special master or third party look at the materials. the judge seems like she was willing to grand the request but the ruling has not 0 come down yet. anybody's guess if it happens before the weekend. >> thanks, marc. i want to go to tom dupree, the former deputy assistant general. i was going to ask you whether the appointment of a special master could be muddied by the revelation that there weren't just a few documents there. there were over 11,000 documents, many more than we thought of various types of classifications and many more top secret than we thought. i'm wondering with a special master, it takes a long time to
go through this sort of stuff. a very long time, right? >> that's right. the volume of documents we learned were seized from mar-a-largo highlights how and extensive a special master review would probably be. keep in mind that a special master probably won't be named today. even if an order comes out today, it would say we're going to appoint a special master but then they have to find someone that has the security clearances to review the documents and once he or she has been selected, they'll begin a long, long slog through thousands of pages of materials to see what is privileged and what is not. >> neil: we know in the latest batch of information made available about documents, i told you the 11,000 plus, more than 100 were classified documents. there were about 90 empty folders. so they once presumably contained documents. what do you make of that? >> well, certainly raises an air of mystery.
the obvious question is where are the documents now. what were the documents? to the second pointed, what was in the folders? we in the government will find out. any time you put information in a folder like that, the government will know. they can trace back to figure out what originally was in the folder that doesn't answer the question as to where those documents are today. >> neil: all right. so if we have 33 items in this issue or detail, laundry list the judge made available, over eight pages and some of these materials that were mixed with magazines and letters and press articles, some clothes, gifts, et cetera, forget about how much you have that you shouldn't have taken from the white house, is this in any way to store them? >> well, i'll give you a quick and concise answer to that. no. you know, the fact is that when the government agents and officials review these
documents, you treat them with the utmost care. you keep them in segregated folders. you can only look at them in sealed rooms. one of the things we've learned based on this inventory, the former president or other people that may have been looking at the documents were careless, frankly in co-mingling these documents with things that were not classified. news articles, personal letters and the like. >> neil: the issue comes back to whether the justice department will pursue criminal charges or whether the attorney general would go ahead and venture in that direction. very risky. as you told me, also very unprecedented. given the volume of material we know now that was in mar-a-largo and all of these documents and the careless way that they were treated, you do have to start wondering especially when we go back to the president and his legal team's denial that they had them in the first place and they did, when they said they gave them some boxes of material awhile back, that was it, turns out it was not, there's a lot of
misrepresentation going on here. >> there is, a lot of misrepresentation. all that makes it likelier that that someone would get charged at the end of the day. the volume of the documents, the nature of the documents increases slightly, the likelihood of a prosecution at the end of the day. merrick garland says you can't prosecute the former president over a technical violation of the law. you have to show that that violation had serious consequences. that's what we're starting to see through the inventory, the affidavit and the other materials. the government is making the case this wasn't the so-called overdue library book. these are very important national security documents that might have been mishandled. >> neil: don't that call that obstruction? >> if you're lying about things -- >> neil: all right.
i think we cut him off there. we'll see. we have more coming up here. we're looking not for this special arbiter to handle this and he was saying there, it's not necessarily going to happen today, but we are getting an indication that whoever is chosen, if it goes that route, they're going to have a lot of documents to come through. we'll keep an eye on that and also keeping an eye on the fallout from the present occupant of the white house that support donald trump. and now they're trying to dial them back.

(other money manager) different how? you sell high commission investment products, right? (fisher investments) nope. fisher avoids them. (other money manager) well, you must earn commissions on trades. (fisher investments) never at fisher. (other money manager) ok, then you probably sneak in some hidden and layered fees. (fisher investments) no. we structure our fees so we do better when clients do better. that might be why most of our clients come from other money managers. at fisher investments, we're clearly different.

>> neil: so much for you nighting the country. the fall-out from the president's speech in philadelphia last night that has a lot of people saying, wait a minute. i thought you were going to bring us together. peter doocy with more on the fallout at the white house. peter? >> we fallowed the president from pennsylvania back here to the white house. when we listened to his remarks late last night, it sure sounded like he was repudiating people that like trump now and people that have liked trump in the past. so i asked the president about that today. >> do you consider all trump supporters to be a threat to the country? >> come on, guys. i don't consider any trump supporters -- >> he used threat or threats or threatened with regard to so-called maga republicans nine times last night, including
right here. >> are republican party tomorrow is dominated and intimidated by donald trump and the maga republicans. that is a threat to this country. >> so now he's making an important distinction. he said his issues are republicans that don't accept the results of the 2020 election or threaten the use of violence when they don't get their way when it comes to politics. he doesn't have an issue with people that went maga before the january 6th capitol riot. >> the people that voted for donald trump and support him now, they weren't voting for attacking the capitol. they weren't voting for overruling the election. they were voting for a philosophy he put forward. >> so that is an olive branch to some of the 74 million trump supporters or i should say people that voted for trump in 2020 who may have been wondering what was up with the remarks
outside independence hall. neil? >> neil: i always wonder, they might have poll tested this, that this is a way to galvanize the base and maybe win over independents. but i'm stretching here. what do you make of it? >> well, it's interesting. because this is a case where the thing that they say is bad, maga, is something that the trump team still says is good. they use maga as like the centerpiece of a potential 2024 run for him. make america great again. they never ran away from it. so i'm sure that this was very carefully poll-tested. however, we would be led to believe that they weren't poll testing anything too much. they say it was not a political speech. it was just about the president's policy positions, neil. >> neil: okay. peter, thanks very much. have a good weekend. peter doocy at the white house on that. in case you think that crime is settling down this summer, signs
that it is heating up and sometimes the video and the elements that we show don't really cover the whole story. it's worse than what you see after this. like any family, the auburns all have... individual priorities. some like strategic diversification. some like a little comfort, to balance out the risk. others want immediate gratification... and long-term gratification,too. they have their own interests, but at the end of the day there's nothing like being... a gold-owner. visit invest.gold to see why gold is everyone's asset. ♪ whenever heartburn strikes get fast relief with tums. it's time to love food back. ♪ tum tum tum tum tums ♪

>> always great to be with you. here we go again. of course, this is a retired cop. make no mistake about it. if he was in place uniform, the same thing could have happened in 2021. it was reported that in chicago, the city of chicago, 76 officers were either shot or shot at. we saw 800 homicides last year. of those 800 homicides, only 400 were solved. when you talk about solving these particular murders, that doesn't mean these individuals and which they believe they solved the case were brought to justice and prosecuted. it's a horrific situation in the city of chicago and not just for the residents but the ones that have sworn to protect us all. this is so heart breaking for so many folks when they cannot believe that the police are going to be able to protect them. in these situations like with the drag racing, they can't protect themselves. police are on eggshells as they
do their jobs in the city of chicago. they don't want to be called a bigot or racist or any negative terms for doing that jobs. so a multiprong scenario that is adding fuel to the fire as the police not being able to break through and keep the citizens of chicago safe. you add that with the politicians and prosecutor, it's hell for so many people that live there. >> neil: what is so wild about it, gianno, so many victims were not the intended targets like your brother, christian. yet it doesn't seem like there's any effort on the part of the city to get to the bottom of it may be because there's so many of them. how does that happen? >> well, first and foremost to your point, absolutely. there was a report about a young lady that was at the wrong place and the wrong time, 37-year-old woman, who was shot. she was on her porch when she
was shot wrong place wrong time. you talk about any number of individuals, whether it's a 7-year-old girl and gets shot at a mcdonalds. in the wrong place at the wrong time. this soft on crime sentiment has spread throughout chicago. criminals don't fear the police or prosecution. chicago police in terms of the murders that they get, they're down 1,000 detectives. kim fox has lost a third of her office in a year's time. it is a critical situation in the city of chicago. the feds should step in. if joe biden want to demonize folks, he should be demonizing those that have taken over the big cities. he needs to demonize those folks and offer as much federal assistance to these local jurisdictions as possible. in some cases like in the city of chicago, it's not even a need to ask. you need to go in, you need to
put prosecutors on the ground and take over some of these cases. clearly the work is not being done when you consider out of all the crime committed last year, only 12% of that crime led to an arrest. you're in a hell hole in the city of chicago and it must come to an end. we need federal assistance and need it now, neil. >> neil: it's been more than two months since christian's death. any leads at all? >> i've gotten some leads. i turned them over to the police. his murder will represent some form of change in the city of chicago. it's a tough fight. i never would have thought in a scenario like this where a young person is murders it would be so hard to get justice for him. that brings about even a young lady that i interviewed who will be coming out monday on fox and
friends on children, a murder of her child. where does she get justice? how does she protect her children? this is the dilemma that is being asked across the city of chicago. what do i do? especially as we come upon this holiday weekend where for sure by monday we'll see some numbers and hopefully it's not as bad as one would think. knowing chicago, what else is there to expect from people that list there and analyze this data. >> neil: thanks, gianno. you'll get to the bottom of this. christian was just 18 years old. we'll have more after this. the unknown is not empty. it's a storm that crashes, and consumes, replacing thought with worry. but one thing can calm uncertainty.

>> neil: all right. they say timing is everything. this is curious. china and russia launching a week-long war games as the global tensions remain high. you know what's going on in taiwan. you know about taiwan shooting down a chinese drone yet. ample warnings and threats coming from china daily. jennifer griffin keeping track of it all at the pentagon. what are these drills about? >> well, neil, china and russia,
the second and third biggest militaries in the world have joined forces for a week-long exercise in eastern russia and the sea of japan. 50,000 troops, 5,000 pieces of military equipment, 140 aircraft and 60 warships will be used nor the war games. even though the last time russia hosted these exercises, they were six time larger than those that began in week. china expert robert daly says russia and china are sending a message to the u.s. >> russia doesn't really want to be in the long-term as a poor younger brother in a partnership with china. china doesn't want to have the albatross of all of putin's adventurism hung around its neck in every instance. when they can have low cast or no-cost unity, we'll see unity. >> so far beijing has stopped short of sending weapons to
moscow, which is running low on smart bombs as the invasion of ukraine grinds on. state-run media in china has made more positive remarks about russian's invasion since a series of u.s. congressional visits to taiwan, including recent visit by speaker pelosi. >> the russians are getting symbolic value of having to chinese run interference for them, trying to embrace some of russia's talking points. where it really matters in terms of military direct support for russia's war, they're badly disappointed. >> trade between russia and china has increased 30% since march. and india recently surpassed china as the number 1 buyer of russian oil. china and iran just entered a 25-year economic and security deal to get around sanctions. neil? >> neil: thanks, jennifer griffin. appreciate it. meantime, they're going to try to give another shot at that artemis rocket launch tomorrow.
2:17 p.m. there's a brief window. after 50 years, we're going to return there. i'm talking ant to the moon. the last living man alive to walk on the moon is next. >> i was strolling on the moon one day. in the merry month of december. >> no, may! the fall season is finally her. so we promise to be there for you for any budget and all the celebrations. all you have to promise is to get in on the action. seasons change, but our lowe's price promise is everyday. shop fall at lowe's today. once upon a time, at the magical everly estate, landscaper larry and his trusty crew... were delayed when the new kid totaled his truck. timber... fortunately, they were covered by progressive, so it was a happy ending... for almost everyone.

>> neil: all right, they will try to give it another go tomorrow. return to the moon this man trying to have a rocket. and the tickets to them in the last go around. but will mother nature cooperate? who better to answer than fox campbell whether multimedia journalist, what is it looking like? >> well, good afternoon, neil. we are in florida and it is summer. we know storms pop up left and right. this morning we have had four lightning warnings pop up for the kennedy space center. there is more weather headed our way tomorrow. but let's take a look at the star of the show. this is ominous on its patter. the strongest rocket set for an unmanned journey around the moon and any other spacecraft. the focus is to do a trip, stress test on it.
there is whether that is suitable for its launch to do these test. and they were two hours for liftoff to, 17 in the afternoon and the weather officer said the conditions should get better towards the end of the two hour window increasing to 80% chance of favorable weather. >> the weather is everything for launch, it really is. one of the biggest threats to the rocket is the weather that will travel before getting to space. essentially, a lightning strike could do a major amount of damage to a rocket. so, most of the weather holes are based on not launching through an existing thunderstorm or triggering a lightning strike. >> all right, tomorrow they will be looking out for cumulus clouds that could suddenly create storms, but they will also be paying attention to the surface electric fueled rule which measures the chance that artemis produces its own lightning while launching peer that could also do a lot of
damage to the rocket and if actually it happened twice before and asked his history. we will keep an eye on the weather tomorrow and if this does end up in a scrub, another window monday afternoon, neil. >> neil: you will have a very, very nice seat in the house. thank you very much. written campbell in fact, harrison smith and what he thinks. he is the last man alive that walked on the moon. and he did it with apollo 17. when you talk about returning to the move after 50 years, the last guys to do it, harrison kind enough to join us now. harrison, a lot of people look at this and say wait a minute we saw harrison and jean and apollo crews. but we need to do this but what do you say? >> neil, it is great to be with you. once again. i think there are two reasons. one is political. it is no question of the chinese have their eyes on the moon.
and they have their intentions on becoming the dominant space bearing and earth bearing nation in the world. so we have to keep that in mind just as we did for apollo when we were dealing with the soviet union appear at the other reason though is, there is a great deal to be learned about e earth through learning about the moon as well. it is about them in self. so the artemis program is designed in order to expand our knowledge and particularly of the south pole region where we have many opportunities, not only to understand some of the rocks that have been thrown there from the south pole lake and, which is one of the largest on the moon but to better understand the resource potential them and offers, not only for lunar space and space stations and trips to mars and
the like, but also for potential power resources used here on earth. you have heard me talk about the primary fuel for fusion power. >> neil: you know, harrison, you mention china at the outset and we have a lot more company as we returned to space and a big way. and only china, but of course so many other countries countries, japan, iran, that have pursued space, but china in particular with its moves to establish a station with its activity on the far side of the moon. do you suspect all of their intentions are scientific or for the good of exploration? >> well, they have made it very clear their intentions are dominants. they may be doing a few things like that and some exploration on the far side and other activities in the future, but they have made it very clear on
earth what their intentions are. >> neil: a lot of people look what they have done in the south china sea and militarized items they don't even own in summary about doing that on the moon. it seems far-fetched but given their track record, you have to wonder. >> you don't have to wonder. it is pretty clear what they are going to do, neil. >> neil: do you worry about that? >> i've been worried about that for decades. >> neil: so i tell people -- go ahead. >> no, i have been worried about it and many other people have, but unfortunately the national leadership has relayed not focused on this issue. it is not just face. what is china. >> neil: oh china is weaponizing space. >> well, i think they already have as you well know, satellite launches have created a great deal of debris in space, which affects every nation. trying to operate satellites in
space. so they are not very careful about how they deal with space, and it is clear that they have weaponized it and they are going to. space is clearly part of our national security regime that we must have. and they are involved in that. and trying to create what we sometimes call an asymmetric problem for our defense system. >> neil: finally, the question on everyone's mind, 50 years ago on the moon, when jean and you guys were singing and a lot of people were wondering who had the worst singing voice. jean said you did. i think you said he did. but it was a great moment. >> i've never made a comment on the singing voice of either one of us. [laughter] >> neil: you certainly have any only come from to both sing at the time. but no one else did that. no one did that ever.
>> not everybody would call it singing but every time i heard a phrase, every time i heard a phrase that reminded me of a song, i would start to sing that song. >> neil: i thought you had a good voice and i thought jane did as well. you are an iconic figure and hero and remembered well. so great to have you back. you must be excited. >> it's great to have the 50th anniversary coming up. >> neil: absolutely. ♪ ♪ >> hello, everyone jessica tarlov, judge jeanine pirro, joey jones, greg gutfeld and it is 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." president biden giving a fiery address to the nation's think the real threat of democracy comes from maga republicans. >> donald trump and the republicans with extremism tha
