face is puffy mcdowell. i'm looking forward to that. cheryl: i know it's telling me i didn't sleep enough. that's okay. dagen: i don't need to know i don't sleep because my face shows it when i get up at 2:30 in the morning. futures are in the green this morning. yesterday kicked off the first day of third quarter earnings season. today we're watching for earnings from big banks, more big banks, bank of america, citigroup, wells fargo and morgan stanley, all reporting this morning. we also get wholesale price data out at 8:30 a.m. eastern time. joining me now, head of investment strategy hank smith. joining the conversation all morning long, new york post columnist and fox news contributor, miranda divine. i'm so excited that you're here. also chief market strategist, victoria fernandez. what are you watching for in this big bank earnings this morning? it's one thing that he deserves
6:05 am
pointing out, that technically if you're looking for an inflation hedge, stocks are pretty good way to do that because companies, if they have market get power, can raise price as inflation moves up. >> for intermediate and long-term investors, you're absolutely right, dagen. stocks are the best inflation hedge and particularly dividend paying and dividend growing stocks, that dividend growth is a great hedge to inflation. it's really interesting. you know, when all the inflation data started to percolate back in the spring, in late march, early april, the yield on the 10-year treasury was 1.75. today, it's 1.55. and yet the most sensitive asset to inflation is fixed income and why aren't yields much higher than they are right now? i think perhaps the market is saying this is transitory inflation, but transitory is a
6:06 am
lot longer than what we might have thought a couple mondays ago. dagen: what the federal reserve is doing still, again, it's kind of paving the way for it to begin pulling back on this securities buying but it's buying $120 billion worth of treasury and mortgage securities every month still. so how much does that distort the fed intervention and really global central bank intervention, distort what's going on in our treasury market? >> you know, the honest answer is it has to distort it a little bit. to what degree, we're not sure. remember, dagen, there's still $13 trillion of sovereign debt that's in negative yields. the 10-year german bond is in a negative yield. the u.s. treasury at 1.55, the 10-year, is a juicy yield relative to other sovereign debt. so, you know, had don't need to be -- they don't need to be in this quantitative easing, in
6:07 am
this bond buying to support the market, that is for sure. and hopefully they'll start this in november, december and run it out fairly quickly and then onto short-term interest rates. dagen: will it get inflation under control or is it now out of the fed's control because they waited too long and they're still pushing up against a government, well, biden and company, rather, who want to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars in additional spending on these vast new entitlements they want to create. >> well, our thesis is once these supply chain disruptions and labor distortions get worked out, it's probably going to take another year from now for this to fullly work out, i think the macro trends that have kept inflation at bay for the past be 30 years, that being technology,
6:08 am
demographics, globalization, those trends aren't going away and a i think inflation is going to be relatively contained, again, once the labor distortion, the supply chain disruptions get worked out. dagen: miranda divine, i want to bring you in on this conversation. i took a screen shot of the headline that's on the new york times this morning and the headline is: consumer prices jumped last month and they're running at a pace we haven't seen in 13 years. it says consumer prices jumped last month, worrying washington and wall street and i thought give it to the new york times to completely ignore the very people that inflation hurts the most, the people who know inflation is percolating, who knew earlier this year, at the beginning of the year, when used car prices were surging. they know how much inflation hurts them. it reduces their standard of
6:09 am
living. it makes america poor. but the new york times, leave it to them to talk about, washington and wall street are worried, miranda. >> it's so typical. that's the prizm through which they see everything. it's not the prizm through which normal people see the world an obviously if you've been going to the grocery stores, if you have been filling your tank up with gas, it's been crystal clear that inflation is rising at a rate take we haven't seen in many years and joe biden is not doing anything to help. dagen: no. he likes to turn is back and walk away. we'll talk more about that in the next segment. when you don't have an answer, don't take a question. hank smith, great to see you this morning. we'll see you very soon. your morning mover, oil or oil as we say in virginia. crude is on the rise this morning, up more than $81 a barrel. inflation, you want to see it, it's right there, driving up

thank you all so very much. [ indiscernible ] dagen: you got a question about the supply chain crisis, inflation skyrocketing, well, your president walks away, again. there's a critical shipping backlog piling up at the ports. shelves are empty across the country, worsening as we get closer to the holidays but president biden refusing to take questions on the supply chain crisis or any of the challenges plaguing not just his administration but this country. joining me now, washington times opinion editor, fox news contributor, charlie hurt. i was going to keep going but what say you? when you don't have an answer, don't take a question.
6:15 am
>> no, that's exactly right. the only thing worse than that video footage would be if he stopped at answered some of the questions because when he opens his mouth it's even more alarming and the things that come out are even dumber and the thing that he said yesterday really is kind of astonishing, that his big solution to fix all this is he is going to call on the private sector. seriously? who the hell do you think has been in charge all along? that's not the problem. the problem is not the private sector. the problem is the government. he is the problem. and he's never going to admit that. dagen: he's calling on the private sector. he also has been aallegedly at work on this supply chain problem all year long. these are all self-inflicted wounds. it seems intentional. >> yeah. no, it really does. and when you look around and it's a very basic question, you don't have to be an economics
6:16 am
expert to realize that if you're paying people not to work, you know what happens, people are very smart, people are rational, they make rational decisions. if they pay people not to work, you know what happens? they don't work. i don't think the problem here is truckers. trucker of course -- when we talk about front line workers that have goten us through the pandemic, truckers many have never stopped working. they own their own trucks and have to pay for them all the time whether there's a pandemic or not. they've been working all along. the problem is unloading the shipping containers or the ships. if you pay people not to work you know what happens? they don't work. that is the fault of the federal government and joe biden wants to blame it all on private sector and say you know what the problem is, we need people to drive at night when there are fewer cars on the roads. you'll appreciate this, dagen. a neighbor of mine cut his corn field. he's a dairy farmer, he cut his corn field. he had one corn stalk left in the field. he put up a sign that said biden
6:17 am
corn maze. that's where we are, ladies and gentlemen. [laughter] dagen: that's virginia humor there. speaking of virginia, i want to talk about virginia's gubernatorial candidate facing accusations of hypocrisy. here he is scolding a reporter for not masking up. >> have you been vaccinated yet? you don't have a mask on. you're dangerous here. i'll build education. dagen: again, here he is caught at a round table discussion about education with no mask on. charlie, i want to get your reaction to -- again, he is not going to talk about education. this is probably the biggest albatross hanging around his
6:18 am
neck going into the gubernatorial election, maybe, in addition to all the other problems that virginnans are facing. what do you make of mcauliffe getting snippy with a reporter not wearing a mask outside. >> in virginia, governor these days are very particular about the masks they wear, wink, wink. yeah, but, no, education is something that terry mcauliffe does not want to touch. he has made his position clear on this, in that debate with glen youngkin where he made very clear that parents have no role in the education of their children, they should not be aware of what schools are teaching their children, that is up to bureaucrats and politicians to make those decisions. and i think you're exactly right, i think that there's no issue that will drive glen youngkin into office more
6:19 am
powerful ethan -- powerfully than that issue. terry mcauliffe is unfit to run virginia education. the hypocrisy there is a perfect example of why. dagen: miranda divine i want you to get in here. you write about on issue in virginia in northern virginia where a virginia dad was villi fifth. villified for defending his daughter. we'll talk about that later in the show. just bigger picture, again, these politicians, these left wing politicians have messed with the wrong group of folks and that's mama bear and papa bear. >> so true. and really, i mean, these are the same sort of suburban moms that joe biden depended on, really, in the last election, by
6:20 am
sort of demonizing donald trump, the media managed to turn off this group of suburban moms. and now that you have people like terry mcauliffe, you have joe biden sicing the attorney general merrick garland who is sicing the fbi on parents who want to have a say in their children's education. whether you vote republican or democrat, you're not going to be happy about that. i think in the midterms this is going to come back to bite democrats and a even earlier it will bite terry mcauliffe. dagen: let me leave you with the exact quote from terry mcauliffe. i don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach. i do appreciate a politician screwing up and telling you what he really thinks. [laughter] >> exactly. that's what a scandal is. dagen: charlie, by the way, i'm going to share with the viewers a photo of you and my dad and
6:21 am
the math teacher who changed my life later in the show. so we didn't have time to get it up. but charlie sent me a photo of him and my father and barbara bass, my high school math teacher. so it's one for the books. i'll leave it at that. >> we heard some stories that night. dagen: i am sure you did. about me. [laughter] dagen: god help us all. charlie, great to see you this morning. charlie hurt. >> great to see you. dagen: coming up, president biden approval under water, why more americans say he is leading us down the wrong path. plus, a real life star trek, william shatner's emotional journey to the edge of space and back.
6:22 am
this isn't just freight. these aren't just shipments. they're promises. promises of all shapes and sizes. each with a time and a place they've been promised to be. a promise is everything to old dominion, because it means everything to you.
6:23 am
i've always focused on my career. but when we found out our son had autism, his future became my focus. lavender baths always calmed him. so we turned bath time into a business.
6:24 am
and building it with my son has been my dream job. at northwestern mutual, our version of financial planning helps you live your dreams today. find a northwestern mutual advisor at thanks for coming. now when it comes to a financial plan this broker is your man. let's open your binders to page 188... uh carl, are there different planning options in here? options? plans we can build on our own, or with help from a financial consultant? like schwab does. uhhh... could we adjust our plan... ...yeah, like if we buy a new house? mmmm... and our son just started working. oh! do you offer a complimentary retirement plan for him? as in free? just like schwab. schwab! look forward to planning with schwab. dagen: a new politico morning consult poll shows the majority of americans do not have confidence in the current state of this country.
6:25 am
when asked if things in the country are going in the right direction or have gotten off on the wrong track, 62% of people polled said that the u.s. is on the wrong track while 38% said things are going in the right direction. victoria, your thoughts on this? like it's hard to name something you think might be going in the right direction. >> yeah. and you know, dagen, when you look at these polls, a lot of it really goes along with what the sentiment is of consumers, of investors, what the market is doing. that's really what drives a lot of people's opinions here. and we were talking earlier about the inflation component. when an individual goes to the store and they're paying more for items, that's not going to leave them to have a good feeling toward the path had that the country is on. an investor might have a little bit of a different approach. when we're talking to clients you're looking at sent sment in the market, like -- sentiment in the market, like a bull, bear ratio and how supportive the markets are being and that's
6:26 am
starting to come down as well. that can feed through to the sentiment of a non-investor as well. you put that together with the delta variant that is still around, some people saying they can't get back to work, child care issues, inflation component and obviously the debt ceiling crisis and we saw all that play out in washington and it's kind of kicked the can down the road now until december so that's not gone, that's still there and it's going to be compiled along with budget issues that we have coming at the same time. so roll all that together and i think you can see why people would say maybe we're not headed in the right direction and there is some concern because there's so much uncertainty right now and once you take that uncertainty out and you have a plan you can feel supportive of, then the numbers will get better. i don't think we're there yet. it kind of flows back to what you were saying earlier. people aren't getting answers to their questions. i think all of this combined to see the results that you're talking about. dagen: miranda, one of the biggest problems is the commander in chief and the people who work for him
6:27 am
repeatedly lie to the american people. and when asked about specific things, they want to spend trillions of dollars more and while inflation is skyrocketing and then they have the audacity to look at the american people over and over again and say the plans don't cost anything and this is how we're going to solve the inflation problem, by spending more money. those are just two of the lies that have been told to the american people this year on everything from afghanistan to the border to the economy. >> that's right. and this is the great disillusionment that you're seeing among biden voters in the polls and it all really began with afghanistan because the debacle of our withdrawal was something that really i think hit people across the board. the they perhaps wanted to get out of afghanistan, that was the correct policy, but just the incompetence and the callusness
6:28 am
of the way we got out, leaving people behind and then the border crisis, we have the del-rio bridge he debacle and i think people who voted for joe biden and believed him when he said he would be a unifying and competent president who was a foreign policy expert, i think they all got a big shock and they've been taking a lot of red pills and i don't think once they've seen what he's really like, i don't think that they'll change their minds any time soon. dagen: and i feel like president biden was at and is at his most billious when he talks about the unvaccinated in terms he doesn't even use for the taliban. and that he pits the vaccinated against the unvaccinated in a way that it's almost -- i think the phrase he used was you have every right to be mad at the unvaccinated. and i think that that, regardless of who you voted for, people look at that and say why
6:29 am
are you trying to stir up resentiment that -- resentimentt that shouldn't exist? >> it's irrational, really. i think it's part of this whole divide and conquer strategy that joe biden has employed since day one. you know, whether it's pitting his voters against trump voters calling trump voters domestic terrorists and white supremacists or whether it's pitting black against white or now we've got the vaccinated against the unvaccinated. i don't think americans want that kind of division and ran core and it's not what they voted for with joe biden. they thought they were voting for the great unifier and they got the grade divider. dagen: they voted for kumbaya and they're getting drop dead. coming up, you're paying more for everything, from gasoline to your next restaurant meal. when we can expect some relief

6:32 am
and believing things that weren't true. that worried us. during the course of their disease, around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. and these symptoms can get worse over time. nuplazid is the only approved medicine prescribed to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. now this is something we want to see. don't wait. ask your healthcare provider about nuplazid.

6:34 am
years. cheryl casone has the details. hey, cheryl. cheryl: good morning, dagen again. the social security administration is issuing its largest increase of benefits in the last 40 years. the agency also increasing the taxable wage base for workers by nearly 3% to keep up with rising inflation. the cost of living adjustment for recipients is going to increase by 5.9% next year. averaging out to about $92 increase for retirees every month. that's a few lunches at least. speaking of inflation, consumer prices rising to 5.4%. that matched the 13-year high set over the summer. prices rising 0.4% last month as the cost of cars, food, gasoline and restaurant meals, they all jumped. we went through this yesterday. get ready to pay more to heat your home this winter. the energy information administration is warning that the cost of heating oil is expected to rice about 43% compared to last year due to, quote, higher expected fuel costs as well as more
6:35 am
consumption of energy due to a colder winter. and then there is this, united airlines getting ready to fire employees who refuse to get the covid-19 vaccine, the airline imposing the vaccine mandate back in august. >> i wish we would have goten to 100%. out of the 67,000 u.s. employees, there are 232 who haven't been vaccinated. they are going through the termination process now. cheryl: that's 0.3% of the workforce at united. a texas judge granted a restraining order against united stopping it from putting 2,000 employees on unpaid leave for failing to get their shots. united is up half a percent in the premarket. finally, there is this, william shatner is back on earth after successfully launching into space. they spent three minutes in zero gravity above the earth. blue origin release the video. at 90 years he is the oldest
6:36 am
person to go into space. you've got to get everybody involved in this conversation. how fun was that to watch? dagen: i can't agree more, cheryl. thank you so much. the u.s. state department this week calling our relationship with taiwan rock solid as concerns grow over potential conflict with china. this comes after the u.s. deployed troops to the island country for at least a year. questions remain on whether america will stand with taiwan if china attacks. an op-ed out in the wall street journal this week explains a, quote, combination of clash ambitions, strategic miscalculations and mutual misperceptions could land the u.s. in a war with china unless we're able to convince president xi we're not a declining power and will defend our allies. joining me now, fox news senior strategic analyst, general jack keane. general, i printed the article out as soon as i saw it yesterday, it's written by
6:37 am
william galston. you how do we do what he's writing about. >> this is certainly a serious issue. president xi has been very clear and somewhat unequivocal that during his tenure, that he intends to resolve this question of unity from mainland china and by that he means he has crushed the hong kong democracy, that's already taken place and brought them in the fold and the second piece to that certainly is taiwan. he has indicated he does not intend to pass this problem on to the next generation. his last statements on this were peaceful unification which we hadn't heard in some time and that took place just this last weekend. but he is bound and determined to unify that and use force if necessary. our problem is this. our military deterrence in the area as we have stated many times here has eroded over the years due primarily to the 9/11
6:38 am
wars. the trump administration started to put that back together. the biden administration is somewhat helping there. they can do much more than what they are doing. i don't think we have a sense of urgency either to move military capability into the region. that is critical. but it's also a window of opportunity that president xi has because he's watching the united states rebuild. he knows it's going to take a number of years before we have that kind of capability, that's an act of deterrence to his military actions. when we play war games you we know what the answer is. we lose the war games. the question comes down to the central issue and that is under this president, president biden, does president xi believe that president biden will come to taiwan's defense if president xi s initiates military action and he has a number of choices in terms of military action to be sure. but i think that is a question mark that we don't know the answer to.
6:39 am
i think the biden administration is trying to send signals, dagen, that we are going to support taiwan because we have increased military assistance program to them. this administration supported the small number of troops that were put into taiwan to assist them with training under the trump administration. they didn't pull them out. they certainly kept them there. and they have sent other strong signals in terms of statements that you just introduced, rock solid support, we'll be there for taiwan, things like that. but what we have never said is made a declaration that we will come to taiwan's defense. i believe this. since the debacle in afghanistan and since we walked away from a 20-year ally, and countries around the world, particularly our adversaries are questioning the united states resolve, i think we should take this issue off the table and make a declaration that mainland china unprovoked attacks taiwan, that
6:40 am
the united states will absolutely come to the defense and would expect our allies to do the same. get the issue off the table and remove the ambiguity that surrounds it. dagen: be clear and concise and forceful in where we stand with taiwan and what we would do if, as you said, if china moves against taiwan. speaking of china, i want to get to this. facing a tough choice in the coming weeks, the country is facing an electricity shortage. leaders will have to decide whether to keep factories running at a normal pace as heating season begins. the shortage prompting authorities to announce a rush to mine and burn more coal. the country has been facing power cuts since mid-september. general keane, i wonder, is this problem exposeing a weakness for china or is it actually intentional because this running factories at lower capacity, it
6:41 am
actually is helping cause the supply shortages that we're seeing around the globe. so is it a problem for china or is it intentional and are they using this as a weapon against us and the rest of the world? >> no, i think it's more of a problem for china. i mean, it's exposing the fact that their industrial base by comparison to the advanced countries in the world is not nearly as sophisticated. their factories consume considerably more energy than what the united states and western factories do given modern technology thats' invested in those factories. what's happening here is they simply have a demand problem that the supply cannot meet. and i think what's truly going to happen here is they're going to have to cut back on some of their factories, particularly the ones that absorb so much energy, steel, cement, chemicals, et cetera, and also do as much as they can to
6:42 am
prevent the people from not having heat in their homes during the wintertime. so they're going to have to trade some capital gain here to protect their own people. and it is, as you mentioned in the introduction, after all in a couple of months the world is gathering to discuss climate change and china has committed to closing coal fired plants and coal mining operations. they're now reopening the coal fired plants and mining operations, not all of them, but a lot of them and had they already are the number one green gas emitter in the world due to these coal fired plants that they have. yeah, pollution is going to be with us in china for some time and i think this is more exposure of a huge weakness that china has, that any other man -- than any other manipulation that's going on here. dagen: final word to you. it also expose ofs how our energy policy weakens the united
6:43 am
states, that it's all directed with john kerry being the climate czar. it's all directed at kowtowing to china and begging on our knees for china to reduce its emissions, saying we're going to destroy our own energy sector which is an i'm credible economic strength but also gives us strength on the world stage because all these other nations not only produce oil for money or they need fossil fuels to exist, so it's just a joke what this administration has done to our own energy power. and superiority. >> no, i don't dispute that at all. you're right on the mark there, dagen. i mean, we're talking out of one side of our mouth in terms of what we're doing to our own energy sector under the guise of climate change and here we have china just running wild with their own program themselves and

7:04 am
and market strategist victoria fernandez. victoria, let's start off with you, futures are growing green this morning following yesterday's mixed close. yesterday kicking off the first day of quarterly earning season. today we are looking out for more earnings from the big banks. cheryl was mentioning wells fargo beatest it hases along with bank of america. what are you watching, victoria? >> i think that's why we are seeing markets up today. obviously jp morgan had great earnings yesterday and the banks are setting the tone a little bit and we see expectations coming down and people are trying to lower the bar a little bit because we weren't sure what things were going to look like especially with disruptions in the last quarter with regards to supply chain and we have been talking about that all morning and how strong the consumer truly is but what we are seeingg from bank earnings and jamie dimon said yesterday, the
7:05 am
consumer is really strong and wells fargo, the loan numbers were up, jp morgan said they thought they hit bottom on loan growth. that would be looking positive into the fourth quarter. that's all really strong news because as we know the consumer really drives this economy. so i think it's given us a little bit of boost, that's why we are seeing the markets up today. we will continue to watch about net interest margin, yield curve is helping the banks going forward not maybe so sure on last quarter but loan growth, net interest margins and the strength of the consumer are the key for the earnings reports. dagen: global supply chains are struggling to keep up with demand coming out of the pandemic. the president biden demanding port of los angeles be open 24/7 to ease the crunch. alli, how much does it impact on retailers but also on the broad economy for the nexts several months even into next year? >> yeah, dagen. that's a great question and i
7:06 am
want to emphasize everything that victor said and release could come based on what you talked about. the movement into more wind and solar and getting more trains than just the general logistic system in the country, getting up and running is going to be super important. but i think one of the things that the world has forgotten is that when you look at the s&p there are major sectors that are not facing supply chain bottlenecks. we just talked about financials and all the good news and growth that we think can come out of there. we have software, tech services, health care, so we are expecting a 30% bump in earnings this quarter and we think that's more in line what we have seen historically in terms to have beats that will be about 5% beat. the expectations are really low and when we look at supply chain
7:07 am
effect we think that's going to peak either late third quarter or late fourth quarter and that's going to immediate over the first and second quarter. based on everything that we talked about on representation of the s&p perspective, we think that's a 1% drag on earnings. you add 1% drag from supply chain bottlenecks, 3 to 4% drag from the proposed corporate tax rate, we are still looking at a 10% year over year growth earnings next year and that is an environment where you can still outperformance and i would be buying into that and i would be agreeing with what we heard out of global feds which there are economy chain bottlenecks, there are mediating, temporary or transitory is a much longer term than we understand and that was underestimated but it is peaking. dagen: the september consumer
7:08 am
price index showed inflation coming higher than expected 5.4% in september. that's matching a 13-year high. this is the federal reserve meeting minutes showed that the central bank is preparing to reduce asset purchases and end stimulus by mid-2022. jason, is that too late? the wall street journal write extensively about this in an editorial today called the inflation tax rises. >> look, i think playing on alli's for the fed the best of times and the worst of times. as you see the producer price index come out you should recognize the gap has actually been rising, producers have been going up faster than even consumer prices which is a squeeze on many companies' margins. the fed is for sure looking at this and absolutely looking at loan growth within banks. if they are good, that's good for banks and if it's good, good
7:09 am
for the economy banks and they are cyclical for sure and looking at the situation has fallen behind. they committed 1 point earlier about a year ago to different targeting mechanism and they need to see the white of inflation's eyes before they are raised. they still are wanting to see more evidence of job's growth, the last payroll was a little bit weak. this is really going to get them behind the 8 ball in my view and the danger here for many investors is that the fed will have to catch up and raise rates more quickly. right now the markets fairly relaxed. you actually see the curve flattening headwind for banks if that continues to happen. but i really think at this point in the game as we look at it at thornburg, there's some really loan growth in the system but this is a source of volatility for investors going forward that

7:15 am
a crisis and more people are being returned. they are lying to the american people. not only releasing people, if you look at the breakdown, there's people on parole, tens of thousands of parole. when i was ice director for almost two years i did maybe 3 paroles, two or three because it had to be case by case analysis based on significant humanitarian concern or law enforcement need so we deal like a snitch or a confidential informant for the drug cartel, so now only reaching the united states, now they can get the job and the other ones tens of thousands no one to report. you're not in custody, you're not in immigration proceedings and show up in ice office at your own free will and how many people do you think i've seen them show up ice office? this administration has been dying from day one, over a hundred thousand releases into

the country and zero covid tests. dagen: the damage being done to the people in the quite, the people here legally is astonishing. miranda, jump in. >> yeah, it's shocking what's been happening on the border and you can see that it's deliberate. i think what tom homan says, the fact that it's been a disaster from the beginning, day one, joe biden decided to dismantle donald trump's hard one border protection policies that actually kept crossings down and now we set for 3 million crossings this year and i can tell you that the new york post, we have an investigation coming up in the nexts few days which will show you exactly what is happening. these people are being dispersed across the country to communities and it's all been done by stealth.
7:17 am
dagen: tom. tom: i said it's by design. no one can -- this administration can't tell me one thing, give me one thing that you have done to slow the flow, have enforcement response to secure the border. even on top of releases, what else does secretary mayorkas do this work, ice, you can do enforcement operations. even the people who weren't given work authorizations, they didn't come here to get a job and never get arrested because ice can't go on operation. what message do you think that sends to the rest of the world. the people call relatives and cartels, not only will be released but you can work and not be in danger of being arrested. every month another enticement and what is congress doing, they continue to talk about amnesty plan to reconciliation. more enticements out which will bring more people to the border. is that mismanagement, no, it's by design.
7:18 am
they want open borders, they haven't done anything, not one thing to slow it down. dagen: the senate parliamentary -- >> tom: you hear to esther oliveora from miami and down the hall of the president and other options to make sure it happens. whether it's executive order or the president just ignores the parliamentary decision which is one of the options, they are going to do something to legalize millions of people because in their eyes they are future democratic voters. this is about power for the democratic party. dagen: new reports that show more migrants are entering the u.s. illegally to supply for asylum are actually middle-class individuals from south america. authorities and aid workers say
7:19 am
some are flying to border cities on airplanes and then taking a taxi or a bus and then walking into the u.s. to turn themselves in. tom, again, it's the big lie about these -- that all of these who are pouring across our border are abused and need of great help and they are at risk where they are coming from. these are middle-class individuals who are flying to the border to cross to the united states. it's just -- >> tom: yeah, the biden administration says they are escaping fear and persecution. no, they are not. they are coming from 150 countries. you are sending message that our border is open, you will be released and can work and ice has been decapitated. that's off the books. the message is to the world the middle class people have been coming for a long time.

where is -- i think michael goodwin, your colleague, writes on that reporting and we find more and more about the shady dealings of hunter biden and there's the bombshell report that hunter shared a joint bank account with his then vice president father and this has many questioning why treasury secretary janet yellen is touting the irs's plan to monitor 600-dollar transactions of average americans while ignoring reports like this, miranda. >> this is a report that we broke a couple of months ago and on two counts we know that credit cards have been shared between hunter biden and his father and, in fact, hunter biden had a problem with his credit card when he was with lady of the night and his credit card had a few extra charges on it let's say and that seemed to have been connected to his

move everything around the country. dagen: president biden is addressing this or at least trying to the global chain crisis yesterday. the port of los angeles will be open 24/7 but to your point if you don't have truckers or labor supply along that whole chain operating the port at extended hours, doesn't do anything. is this too little too late in your mind? >> well, we would think it's never too little too late because if we can't solve the problem this year at least we will hopefully have an opportunity to move to solving it next year but with the port open 24/7 which is a really great thing, what's going to happen is we are going to see a mountain of containers stacking up at the yard at the port because the real issue if we can get enough truckers into the ports to take containers away and bring them to warehouses in distribution centers, you can
7:38 am
only imagine jimmy hoffa smiling from wherever he is on how important truckers are in the united states and how much on the front line truckers are these days because they are really driving santa sleigh's and we need more of them and there's not enough around. dagen: victoria, jump in here. >> i'm very curious when we look at a company like yours or manufacturing company, i understand that where we are right now to supply is the immediate issue but whether you're looking at longer term, will you completely shift the way your supply chain works or are you lacking at ways to change that so we don't have an issue going forward? i know there's lighter weight, lower quality by air. >> so the long-term plan is everybody is stretching out the life cycle or supply cycle. normally we are shipping goods from various locations in june,
7:39 am
july and august, august, september, october to be on time for the christmas season and now starting to ship in march and april to make sure they get through the supply chain in time and the retailers have their stock ready early because one of the biggest issues especially as it relates to international freight is that there's only so many of those giant containerships on the face of the earth. the prices are going to be really high. so infrastructure is huge. there's a a bill in washington that's been sitting there forever, both sides agree to it. it's going to improve the ports and improve our transportation networks and how these politicians just can't get together and get that moving is really frustrating first of all business because that's going to create jobs and that's going to alleviate a lot of the bottlenecks.

dagen: big day for earnings specifically bank earnings, wells fargo and morgan stanley reporting this morning both beating estimates. joining me bank advisory and strategic services marty mosby. your reaction on earnings that we have gotten in the last couple of days starting with jp morgan yesterday and those this morning too? >> well, if you look at it, double beats which basically means that they have better revenues and better bottom line net income and that all sounds really strong, however, when you unwrap that a little bit and start look agent the components, your actual loan loss provisioning credit cost are significantly a positive and that's what's causing most of the beats on the bottom line is what you're seeing in just the loan lost provision which is cyclical and not really sustainable and the other thing that you are going to see are revenue beats coming from fee income which are in businesses and are benefiting right now which also may not be as
7:46 am
sustainable. you look at what happens as we roll today into 2022. we may see some of the positives begin to kind of burn out and that's what we are going to monitor and watch as we go from here into next year. dagen: what are the biggest concerns in terms of core businesses in the quarters ahead then? you talk about what's not sustainable. what is if anything? >> there's a couple of things. so one, the asset management frees with the increase in the financial markets with the inflation you're seeing, you're seeing all of the deposits or all of the assets under management that are growing very rapidly, so that is sustainable. that's one part of the business that is. the other thing that was positive that is, you know, kind of -- a foreshadowing of what we might see is loan growth as asset prices are going up, every loan that you underwrite again is at higher level so we do think that this, what we are
7:47 am
seeing now is high-single digits, 6, 7, 8% growth in loans and that would be sustainable as well. that can be a positive. the negative that we are really seeing is net interest margins. net interest margins continue to compress and they will continue to do that because the new origination of loans is at rates that are less than what the balance sheet has today and competition given all of the liquidity is going to be fierce. so we look at margins which represents about half of the revenue stream and that's really where you look at the sustainability. that's going to be under pressure, has been and will be under more pressure going into next year. dagen: goldman sachs will report tomorrow, year over year looks like a traditional bank, does it not? >> it is, that was by design. they started doing that a couple of ago by pulling in some of the lending vehicles and businesses
7:48 am
and the business model that they put together actually is suited for this environment with low cost of funding, a lot of wholesale funding that's out there, liquidity is out and very readily available to them, growing the assets with little or no credit risk. what we are seeing right now is that this infusion of fiscal and monetary stimulus is causing the charge-offs at record low levels. so the businesses that they rolled out on the banking side should do relatively well and what we are seeing in capital markets and investments have been positive and you put the model together and goldman is one that is actually positioned pretty well going into this. dagen: with the federal reserve getting ready to pull back on the ginormous bond buying and securities buying program, in the short run could that be good for the banks if they keep
7:49 am
short-term rates low and maybe you get an increase in longer-term rates, if that's possible, that would be a positive would it not? >> it would. it's not quite as favorable as if they start to raise short-term interest rates but it is a positive and that positive and it really becomes a positive because you think of all of the deposit growth that came as we basically had all of the stimulus programs, passed a lot of money out and ended up in deposit accounts and banks across the country. deploying that has been hesitant and you compare jp morgan and bank of america, bank of america has been deploying excess funding very rapidly into the market at today's rates. jp morgan has been holding back. so if we were to see steepening of yield curve and deployment of liquidity on jp morgan balance sheet it can benefit more by waiting versus earlier on.
7:50 am
the steepness of the yield curve is a positive. 25% of the positive as if all rates were going up but we do think that the yield curve will continue to steepen and that should be a slight favorable as we go into next year. dagen: marty, great to see you, terrific insight, please come back soon, sir. >> thanks for having me. dagen: squid game coming to life. hit netflix show making a buzz this morning. we will tell you how it works next. ♪ ♪ ♪ growing up in a little red house, on the edge of a forest in norway, there were three things my family encouraged: kindness, honesty and hard work. over time, i've come to add a fourth: be curious.
