'Sunday Morning Futures' sulla crisi della catena di approvvigionamento, inflazione in 2022

JASON CHAFFETZ, FOX NEWS ANCORA: Buona domenica mattina, tutti. E felice anno nuovo. Sono Jason Chaffetz, in per Maria Bartiromo.

Dritto avanti “Futures della domenica mattina”: Il presidente Biden sta affrontando molteplici sfide nel nuovo anno, principalmente a causa del suo processo decisionale. L'inflazione sta dilagando, a quasi 40 anni di altezza. Continua la crisi umanitaria al confine meridionale, senza fine in vista. I casi di COVID sono in forte aumento, con prove scarse.

E i tassi di omicidi sono in aumento in un certo numero di grandi città in tutto il paese, dopo che i progressisti hanno spinto a definanziare i dipartimenti di polizia.

in arrivo, Il senatore del Kansas Roger Marshall sul primo anno del presidente alla Casa Bianca e cosa devono fare i repubblicani per riprendere il controllo del Congresso a metà mandato di quest'anno.

Poi: Cina e Russia stanno testando l'impegno dell'amministrazione Biden per proteggere la libertà in tutto il mondo, come ha spiegato l'ex Segretario di Stato Mike Pompeo il mese scorso con Maria.

MARIA BARTIROMO, FOX NEWS ANCORA: Qual è la ragione per cui la Russia sta costruendo queste truppe ora?? Qual è la ragione per cui la Cina sta portando questi jet a Taiwan ora e la ragione per cui l'Iran sta costringendo gli Stati Uniti a chiedere un accordo nucleare?

Hanno tutti deciso di diventare aggressivi ora.

MIKE POMPEO, EX USA. SEGRETARIO DI STATO: Ogni azione intrapresa dall'amministrazione Biden, tutte le prove che ogni leader mondiale può vedere, qualsiasi dittatore può vedere gli spettacoli che l'America è — non ha risoluzione, nessuna credibilità, nessuna capacità di proteggere effettivamente le cose che contano per gli Stati Uniti e per i nostri amici in Asia o per i nostri amici in Europa.

CHAFFETZ: Il nuovo membro della classifica del Comitato Intel della Camera, Il membro del Congresso dell'Ohio Mike Turner, è qui sulle ambizioni globali della Cina.

Più: Poiché le varianti Omicron e Delta aumentano i casi di COVID, Il presidente Biden afferma che un approccio unico per gestire la pandemia potrebbe non essere la soluzione migliore, questo nonostante la sua campagna elettorale prometta di spegnere il virus.

La deputata di New York Nicole Malliotakis è qui per questo e per l'impatto che la riforma della cauzione ha avuto sull'aumento della criminalità in tutta l'America.

Poi: L'industria dei liquori sta affrontando una scarsità di birra, vino e liquori a causa dei continui problemi con la filiera globale. Jon Taffer da “Salvataggio da bar” è qui su come i bar in tutto il paese stanno affrontando la carenza di offerta e manodopera.

Tutto questo e altro, mentre guardiamo avanti “Futures della domenica mattina.”

Il primo anno in carica del presidente Biden è quasi finito nei libri, ed è stato evidenziato da una serie di crisi, principalmente causati dalle politiche dell'amministrazione, dall'inflazione che divora qualunque aumento salariale abbia ricevuto dagli americani, a milioni di migranti che attraversano illegalmente il confine meridionale spalancato.

Gli elettori danno un pollice verso alle prestazioni lavorative del presidente. In un recente sondaggio FOX Business, la maggioranza degli elettori disapprova la gestione della pandemia da parte del presidente Biden, l'economia, le tasse, crimine, la spesa pubblica, e immigrazione. Oltre a quello, sta andando alla grande.

Insieme a me ora per dare un'occhiata più da vicino al primo anno del presidente alla Casa Bianca c'è il senatore repubblicano Roger Marshall.

Senatore, grazie mille per esserti unito a noi.

Il presidente è in carica da poco meno di un anno. Ma i numeri dei sondaggi e le persone con cui parli per strada, Io non — Non posso indicare una sola cosa che le persone siano entusiaste di Joe Biden e di quello che sta facendo.

SUO. ROGER MARSHALL (R-KS): sì.

Buon giorno, Jason, e buon anno a te e famiglia.

Ma hai ragione. Questi numeri mostrano che l'America sta vivendo un incubo, un incubo creato dalle politiche di questa Casa Bianca. Ricordo solo alla gente non molto tempo fa che il presidente Obama ha detto di non sottovalutare mai la capacità di Joe di rovinare qualcosa.

Così, fai solo una scansione in giro per il paese, in tutto il mondo alle crisi create da questa Casa Bianca, una crisi alla frontiera, una cultura dell'illegalità in tutto il paese, inflazione, il prezzo della benzina, l'incapacità di affrontare il COVID, questioni di sicurezza nazionale.

Tutte queste politiche stanno venendo a galla proprio ora. E stiamo tutti vivendo quell'incubo.

CHAFFETZ: Bene, esaminiamo ulteriormente questo sondaggio.

Mentre guardi questi numeri, mentre tiriamo su questa grafica qui, Senatore, te lo devo dire, la maggior parte degli americani sta dimostrando di essere molto, molto preoccupato per tanti problemi che stanno affrontando il paese.

E io — il presidente ha fatto una campagna sull'idea che avesse un piano, ma penso che la maggior parte degli americani, non vedono quale sia questo piano presumibilmente.

MARSHALL: sì, Jason.

Così, quando sei socialista, vedi ogni problema come un chiodo. E l'unica soluzione che hai è una grande mazza. E quando — ancora, quando sei socialista, quando sei un grande governo governo socialista, vedi ogni problema, provi a colpirlo con una mazza.

Poi ci sono i danni collaterali, creando altri quattro problemi. E poi provi a prenderti cura di quei quattro problemi, e tu crei 16 più problemi. Quindi ora vediamo un composto di errori. E quando guardi questi problemi, non puoi guardarli in piccoli silos. C'è sempre sovrapposizione.

Così, se si tratta di COVID e in che modo il loro mandato sta influenzando i militari, come sta avendo un impatto sui tuoi operatori sanitari, come sta impattando sulla sicurezza nazionale, quindi stiamo assistendo a un aggravamento degli errori in questo momento da parte di questa amministrazione.

CHAFFETZ: Proprio in cima a quella lista, Senatore, è l'inflazione?.

Cosa dovrebbe fare il Senato per contrastare l'inflazione?? Cosa dovrebbe fare il presidente per combattere l'inflazione?? E cosa ti stanno dicendo le persone nel tuo buono stato del Kansas sulla realtà dell'inflazione nel tuo stato??

MARSHALL: sì, bene, è.

In realtà, i problemi più grandi in Kansas in questo momento sono l'inflazione e il mandato. Questo è l'impatto maggiore, destra? E, ancora, quelle sfide si sovrappongono tra loro. Così, numero uno, dobbiamo riportare le persone al lavoro.

Abbiamo creato un'interruzione artificiale della catena di approvvigionamento dicendo alle persone che ti pagheremo di più per stare a casa che per tornare al lavoro. Ad un certo punto nel tempo, il governo federale pagava una famiglia di quattro persone $ 108,000 un anno per non lavorare. Riesci a immaginare? Quindi dobbiamo riportare le persone al lavoro.

E poi bisogna tornare alle politiche energetiche del presidente Trump. Il prezzo della benzina, il costo delle utenze è aumentato significativamente nell'ultimo anno. E tutti questi sono i risultati di questo — delle politiche di questo presidente.

Quindi queste sarebbero due semplici soluzioni. Torniamo all'indipendenza energetica. Rilanciamo l'innovazione americana.

CHAFFETZ: sì, le cose stavano andando davvero bene. Il confine è stato bloccato. L'economia stava esplodendo. E non avevamo questi numeri inflazionistici che ci venivano addosso.

Ma voglio seguire qui e parlare un po' dei mandati che hai menzionato, perché hai scritto un disegno di legge per cercare di sbarazzarti dei mandati che vengono imposti ai nostri militari. Raccontacelo.

Ma devo dirtelo, mentre vado a parlare con persone in tutta l'America, alcuni vaccinati, altri no, Penso che siano stufi di questi mandati. Semplicemente non pensano che il governo federale dovrebbe dire loro di farsi un'iniezione. E, se lo fanno o non lo fanno, e possono o non possono entrare in un ristorante, pensano che sia un ponte troppo lontano.

MARSHALL: sì, bene, di certo, sappiamo che i mandati non hanno funzionato.

E guarda solo le ultime settimane. Abbiamo finito 500,000 persone con test positivo due giorni fa. E poi, proprio ieri, Penso che fossimo quasi all'altezza 500,000 anche. Così, i mandati non funzionano.

Cosa abbiamo fatto nella NDAA, l'atto di autorizzazione della difesa nazionale, legislazione bipartisan, è, sappiamo che la Casa Bianca vuole dare al nostro personale militare un congedo disonorevole se vengono separati a causa del loro rifiuto di prendere il vaccino.

credo, come medico dell'esercito me stesso, io stesso ex medico dell'esercito, Rispetto le libertà religiose. Penso che questa dovrebbe essere una decisione tra il medico dell'esercito, il medico militare, il loro cappellano, e anche i soldati.

Quindi quello che abbiamo fatto è, siamo in grado di introdurre alcune leggi che sono state approvate che impedirebbero a quel soldato di essere separato dal congedo con disonore.

Ancora, Sostengo il vaccino, ma penso che dovrebbe essere una scelta personale.

CHAFFETZ: sì, l'idea di autodeterminazione, credo, è tanto americano quanto diventa.

E, Guarda, Sono pro-vaccino. Ho il vaccino. Ho ricevuto il booster. Anche mia moglie. Ma le persone possono prendere questo tipo di decisioni da sole, non il governo. È incredibile per me che i cosiddetti liberali siano così irremovibili da dover fare questo, che il governo prenderà il controllo dei loro corpi.

Tutto ok, Lasciami — lasciami andare avanti e passare a qualcos'altro. La ragione per cui i Democratici possono governare il tavolo su molte di queste cose è perché controllano la Camera, il Senato e la Presidenza. Ma ci sono un certo numero di senatori in pensione là fuori, la maggior parte dei quali sono repubblicani.

Se tiriamo su la grafica qui, abbiamo un certo numero di persone che stanno andando in pensione, solo il senatore Leahy dalla parte democratica della navata.

Qual è la strategia per? — al Senato per riottenere il controllo e restituire quel martelletto a Mitch McConnell?

MARSHALL: sì, Jason, bene, Sono molto ottimista sul fatto che riporterà la maggioranza al Senato.

E penso che iniziamo semplicemente dando più corda ai Democratici, destra? Solo l'America sta guardando le loro politiche. Quindi sono molto, molto ottimista. E sono ottimista per i sondaggi che vedo. Guardi le schede generiche in questo momento, e quello che stiamo vedendo è — negli stati viola le persone si stanno spostando in queste schede generiche per sostenere i repubblicani per la prima volta nella mia carriera.

Non siamo mai stati e sopra un meno sei da quando sono a Capitol Hill da cinque anni in questo momento, quindi per passare al regno positivo nel personale — negli stati viola e con donne istruite, con gli indipendenti. Quindi sono tutti enormi, grandi vittorie per noi.

E quei posti per la pensione che hai lassù, Penso che possiamo annotare Missouri come una vittoria, Alabama come una vittoria. Penso che staremo bene in North Carolina. Penso che siamo davvero solidi in Ohio. Abbiamo del lavoro da fare in Pennsylvania.

Ma andiamo all'attacco. Rick Scott sta facendo un ottimo lavoro gestendo l'NRSC, il Comitato del Senato Nazionale Repubblicano. Ha una strategia, raggiungere quegli elettori indipendenti, agli elettori ispanici, allungare la mano e far crescere la festa. Il Partito Democratico ha lasciato i repubblicani tradizionali, e così come i Democratici.

Quindi penso che abbiamo una grande opportunità qui per prendere posto in Arizona, così come la Georgia. E ci saranno un paio di jolly che tireremo fuori il cappello — anche fuori mano.

CHAFFETZ: Oh, Posso nominare alcuni jolly sulla lista che dovrebbero essere sconfitti. Certamente, Senatore.

(RISATA)

CHAFFETZ: Tutto ok, molto velocemente, Ho solo circa 30 secondi rimasti.

Quali sono le questioni di alto livello che vanno alle elezioni?, i principali driver quando arriviamo alla fine di 2022?

MARSHALL: sì, bene, Penso che resti COVID e l'economia, destra?

Se facciamo bene l'economia, tutto il resto va a posto, che al contrario di un approccio a mazza universale da parte del governo federale, Penso che gli americani vedranno che questo approccio non funziona.

Torniamo agli States, alle comunità locali per risolvere i propri problemi, e far ripartire l'economia.

CHAFFETZ: amen per questo.

Il senatore Roger Marshall, Grazie mille.

Buon anno, e grazie per esserti unito a noi “Futures della domenica mattina.”

MARSHALL: Grazie, Jason.

CHAFFETZ: Tutto ok, avanti su “Futures della domenica mattina”: i pericoli che circondano le ambizioni globali della Cina, per quanto riguarda Taiwan e la Russia. Cosa dovrebbe fare ora l'amministrazione Biden.

Il membro del Congresso Mike Turner, appena nominato il nuovo membro della classifica del Comitato per l'Intelligence della Camera, si unisce a me dopo.

BARTIROMO: Cosa c'è dietro questa incompetenza intorno al PCC, che è stato molto chiaro sul fatto di voler superare gli Stati Uniti come superpotenza numero uno?

SUO. MARSHA BLACKBURN (R-TN): Bene, hai ragione su questo.

E chiunque segua quello che stanno facendo i cinesi comunisti, sono intenti al dominio globale nel momento in cui arriviamo alla metà del secolo. Questo è il loro obiettivo. E se gli Stati Uniti. non resisterà ai cinesi comunisti, nessun altro resisterà a loro. People are depending on the United States to lead this way.

(FINE VIDEO CLIP)

CHAFFETZ: That’s Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn sounding the alarm over China’s global ambitions.

Next month will mark 50 years since President Nixon traveled to China to meet with Chairman Mao, which was a dramatic first step towards normalizing U.S. relations with the communist country.

Oggi, Chinese President Xi Jinping oversees the world’s second largest economy, with its military boasting nearly one million active-duty troops. China has vowed reunification with Taiwan, while strengthening its military and diplomatic ties with Russia, leaving President Biden to deal with a major dual threat.

Joining us now for his first interview since being named the new ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, Il membro del Congresso dell'Ohio Mike Turner.

membro del Congresso, thanks so much for joining us on “Futures della domenica mattina.” And congratulations for your appointment there as the new ranking member.

RAPPRESENTANTE. MICHAEL TURNER (R-OH): Bene, grazie, Jason. I greatly appreciate it.

Come sai, Devin Nunes was a man for history in really unwinding the Russia hoax. E, di certo, Kevin McCarthy, hopefully our next speaker, has a strong commitment to national security. So it’s going to be a very important time, as we focus on what the intelligence community can do to give information about our adversaries to policy-makers.

And I look forward to serving in the position.

CHAFFETZ: sì, it is a sole appointment by Kevin McCarthy. He appointed you in this role. You’re the ranking member, which puts you in the Gang of Eight, a huge, huge responsibility.

And understand there are some things that we do in Congress, and there are other things that are really important in Congress. And you have one of those important roles.

Let’s talk for a moment about China, because China has been on the march. It seems to have a strategy and a plan and momentum. What should Americans really know from behind the scenes about China, its ambitions and its goals?

TURNER: Bene, Jason, you have been a strong advocate for rising to the threat of China.

E, di certo, that is what we need to do. This administration, as Marsha Blackburn was just saying, has a decision to make as to how we invest in our military capabilities, in our technology capabilities to counter what China is doing.

China’s investing in its military, trying to exceed the United States in our military capabilities, so that they can hold us at bay. In technology, they’re investing in technology, in part to advance their surveillance society, by which they use their authoritarian powers to repress their people, but also to reach outside of China and to affect those wholike democracies like ourselves that they see as a threat.

This president has an opportunity to both hold them at bay and make America strong, and he needs to commit himself to that now.

CHAFFETZ: President Biden hasn’t been able to protect our own borders. We have got people streaming across by the hundreds of thousands.

What makes the world think that President Biden is tough enough to actually help protect Taiwan if China moves after the Olympics to some sort of plan for reunification with Taiwan?

TURNER: Destra.

Bene, that is the major threat that we see. da Papi Steak sulla First Street, authoritarian regimes hate democracies. They hate it when people are seeking self- determinazione. That’s certainly what we have in Taiwan. This president has shown his weakness, both in Afghanistan in responding to Russia in response to their threats to Ukraine.

Così, di certo, China sees this as an opportunity. This administration needs to turn to our allies and bolster the world democracies to oppose Chinese efforts to invade Taiwan and toas you said, reunification, but also just impose their authoritarian will on Taiwan.

But I think this is a great opportunity and role for Congress and I think why these elections next year are going to be so important. Taking that gavel from Nancy Pelosi, credo, will make a huge difference in the House in being able to reinvest in our military, make America strong again, impose on this administration controls on our border, and set us back on the path to a strong America.

CHAFFETZ: Bene, stay with us. We got to go to a commercial break.

Ma, membro del Congresso, I want to talk to you about Adam Schiff, and I want to talk about Russia and what it’s doing in its move forward in what’s going on with Ukraine.

Ancora, congratulations on the new appointment.

TURNER: Grazie.

CHAFFETZ: Resta con noi, because we have more with Congressman Mike Turner coming up on “Futures della domenica mattina.”

(INIZIA VIDEO CLIP)

DONALD TRUMP, FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I think the origins are so obvious. They came out of the Wuhan lab. And I think if anybody thinks anything differently, they’re just kidding themselves.

Così, you can ask. China has to pay. They have to do something. They have to pay reparations. And China doesn’t have the money to pay those reparations. I believe that, worldwideI’m not just talking United Statesworldwide, $ 60 trillion of damage, $ 60 trilioni. China doesn’t have $ 60 trilioni.

But they have to do something to make up whatfor what they have done. What they have done to the world is so horrible. It’s been horrible all over the world. And it doesn’t stop.

(FINE VIDEO CLIP)

CHAFFETZ: That’s former President Trump suggesting that China should pay for reparations for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now two years after COVID-19 was first detected in Wuhan, scientists are still split on its origins. While some believe it emerged in the wild, others theorize it escaped from a lab in Wuhan. China has blocked any attempt for a full investigation inside its border, while no evidence has emerged that the virus was of natural origin.

House Intel Committee ranking member Mike Turner is back with us.

membro del Congresso, it’s pretty shocking to me, with all the deaths of COVID and how it’s impacted the world, that the United States CongressDemocrats are in charge of both the House and the Senatethere is no investigation into the origins of COVID-19. non ci posso credere.

TURNER: Destra.

Bene, if you go to the House Intelligence Committee Republican Web site, we have put up on that Web site what aresome of the things that are known publicly and are a series of questions that need to be answered and need to be getting to the bottom of.

Così, one thing we know, that this virus came from China. And we also know that, as you indicated, there’s been no nexus or proven source for the virus naturally. And one thing that I think needs to happen, as you read all the articles of the scientists that are debating it, è, the United States needs to declassify all the information that it has that the intelligence community has gathered, because this needs to be part of our public debate to hold China accountable.

We need to look at what we do know and enter that into the public debate, so people can understand that this is not just conjecture as to the origins. There are things that are known. And they’re very troubling, and they certainly go to the root of why we need to hold China accountable.

CHAFFETZ: sì, that would be an interesting question, if Joe Biden ever took a question, as to why he wouldn’t declassify that, so the world can have a better understanding.

membro del Congresso, we got to keep moving around the world, because intel is far and wide, in the few minutes we have together.

I want to talk about Russia and Ukraine. What do you see happening there? What is the threat? Is Russia really pulling back? Or are they on the verge of making a move and taking over more of theof Ukraine?

TURNER: Bene, it’s hard to predict what they will do.

But what they are doing, we know, is threatening Ukraine as a valid elected democracy, both having invaded it prior and annexing portions of the country in Crimea and in the Donbass region, destabilizing the country, and seeking to have a portion of the country align itself with Russia, and then threatening the remainder of the country.

This is a real threat to NATO and the United States and certainly democracies. And the fact that Russia could be using tanks to change the map of the world against a democracy, credo, should be troubling to all of our allies.

CHAFFETZ: No, it absolutely should.

E, ascolta, I also need to ask you about your new role here as the ranking member. I think there’s a lot of people that are anticipating that the House will take over control by Republicans in 2022. And you would be the chairman of this important committee.

But how in the world are you going to deal with Adam Schiff? intendo, my own personal belief, Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell, I don’t even know how they have security clearances.

Così, what’s the strategy of dealing with these people and their approach, perché, proprio adesso, Adam Schiff still has that gavel?

TURNER: Destra.

Bene, Adam Schiff has largely been discredited. intendo, even across all media outlets, people understand that the information that he was leaking and even the public statements he was making did not comport to what we knew about the Russia hoax and what was happening in the Intelligence Committee.

But I think what’s really important here is that Adam Schiff’s use of both the Intelligence Committee and the intelligence community for political purposes and political gain really shows the whole risk of why we need to hold the intelligence community accountable.

We give them powerful tools, both in technology and an ability to gather information about individuals. We need to make certain that there is a high level of accountability and oversight in the use of those tools, perché, in the wrong hands, it can be very detrimental to our society.

CHAFFETZ: Real quickly. Ho solo circa 20, 30 secondi rimasti.

What are the things that you believe the Intelligence Committee should be diving into this year?

TURNER: Our focus should be on what our adversaries are doing and making certain that the intelligence that we have about those adversaries gets in the hands of policy-makers, so America can rise to the occasion.

CHAFFETZ: No, suo — membro del Congresso, it is a massive role to take on for a retiring Devin Nunes. You have been selected by Kevin McCarthy.

I think you’re going to be a great spokesperson for the committee. And your ability to articulate a very complex issue like Russia and China and Taiwan to the American people is going to be a very important one.

It was an honor and a privilege to serve with you. And congratulations on this new role.

TURNER: Grazie, Jason.

Appreciate your efforts to make certain that people understand what’s going on in the world and how it affects their lives.

CHAFFETZ: Grazie.

Buon anno.

TURNER: You too.

CHAFFETZ: Tutto ok, President Biden acknowledges there’s no one-size- fits-all when it comes to fighting the COVID pandemic.

Biden said last week that the solution has to be tailored state by state. Così, why all the federal mandates?

New York Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis up next with that.

(PAUSA MERCIALE)

(INIZIA VIDEO CLIP)

JOE BIDEN, PRESIDENTE DEGLI STATI UNITI: Guarda, non esiste una soluzione federale. This gets solved at a state level.

Sto guardando il governatore Sununu nel consiglio qui. Ne parla molto.

And then it ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the road, and that’s where the patient is in need of help or preventing the need for help.

(FINE VIDEO CLIP)

CHAFFETZ: That’s President Biden last week saying the solution to fighting COVID-19 resides at the state level, despite his promise to — citazione — “shut down the virus” durante 2020 campagna presidenziale.

This comes as new cases are rapidly surging across the country due to the Omicron variant. New York set a record yesterday for its highest ever single-day total of new cases, con oltre 85,000. Florida is also seeing record high cases.

Nel frattempo, the Biden administration has promised to deliver 500 million at- home tests soon, despite the administration reportedly rejecting a proposal from testing experts in October to ramp up production before the holidays. The president has denied that report.

For more on this, let’s bring in New York Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis. She’s a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

Congresswoman, thank you so much for joining us on “Futures della domenica mattina.”

Guarda, the president has been all over the map. He promised to shut it down. Nel mese di luglio, he said essentially it was shut down. Now he’s saying it’s really up to the states. He said he had a plan, but I can’t tell if the guy has a plan, perché, se è, he’s holding it really good secret there.

RAPPRESENTANTE. NICOLE MALLIOTAKIS (R-NY): Bene, happy new year, Jason. And thank you for having me.

The reality is that the president made a lot of promises during the campaign trail. We’re not seeing it come to fruition now. Infatti, he was so critical of President Trump, yet we have had more deaths in 2021 under President Biden. And he had the benefit of the vaccination, which we know reduces the symptoms that somebody experiences if they test positive.

E posso dirti, from a state like New York, where we have one-party rule and we see restrictions and mandates and people being fired, losing their livelihood if they choose not to vaccinate, these restrictions have done nothing to really reduce the level of these positive cases.

As you said earlier, we’re seeing record positive cases once again. And I believe it’s time that this administration focus on therapeutics, focus on treatments. And I have been pushing for that, because the reality is, is that this virus is here to stay. It’s various variants, various forms.

But we need to learn to live with it. And the best we’re going to do, by both vaccinating people who want to be vaccinated and making sure they have access to it, but also ensuring that we have the therapeutics and the treatment to treat people, including those positive patients that do end up getting sick, even despite having the vaccination.

CHAFFETZ: sì, I kind of like what Congressman Jim Jordan said. Egli ha detto, if President Biden’s plan is working, how come it’s not working?

It just begs the question. You have people now that are saying the wrong way to track this is by the number of new cases. How convenient for the new president to be able to take on this role.

But it also strikes me, Congresswoman, that it is not a very targeted approach. To just blanketly send out 500 million tests, why not target those that are the most vulnerable? Why not target the people that actually are showing symptoms?

I just don’t understand why that isn’t the prevailing thought there in Washington, D.C.

MALLIOTAKIS: Sono d'accordo con te.

And this administration, purtroppo, has been just very reactive. Così, instead of focusing on the treatments and therapeutics, they want to focus on more mandates. And you’re right. If he believes now this should be the responsibility of the states, why is he continuing to try to enforce this mandate on every business across America?

Eighty-two million Americans would be affected by it, and many will lose their livelihoods as a result. That is why I and 180 other colleagues of mine in Congress have filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court, which will be hearing that case, or at least for the stay, a gennaio 7.

CHAFFETZ: Bene, good luck with that.

I want to talk about crime, because there is an intersection here. And I know you’re keen on crime and being able to fight crime. Prima di tutto, we have an open border. It’s as porous as it can be. It just flows, people coming across with who knows what, whether it’s Omicron or the virus or drugs or whatnot.

But then you also have this crime surge that’s happening in these Democratic cities, including New York City, which is close to you.

MALLIOTAKIS: sì.

One of the first things I did as a member of Congress was visit the Southern border to expose what was going on there. E, fondamentalmente, President Biden has allowed the drug cartels to run our Southern border. We are seeing record individuals being smuggled over the border, but also we’re seeing drugs.

Fentanyl, come sai, is now the leading cause of deaths in a new report among 18-to-45-year-olds. Così, we can talk about COVID, but among that age group, it is fentanyl. And that stuff is pouring over our border. The drug cartels are making billions and billions of dollars a month just doing that.

And so we need to secure our border. It is shocking to me that President Biden continues to push the Supreme Court to allow him to repeal once again the remain in — ordine. He doesn’t want to comply with it, despite the fact that it was effective in keeping people in Mexico until their asylum cases can be heard and it’sthey’re properly vetted.

Adesso, locally, noi abbiamo — New York City, ovviamente, è, purtroppo, a sanctuary city. We continue to protect those who are here illegally committing crimes. Infatti, someone who was arrested, a Mexican national who was committing drug trafficking, presumibilmente, fentanil, here in New York City, was released by a judge back onto the streets.

So we need our mayor to appoint good judges to the bench, numero uno. But we also need to ensure that he fights for changes to the disastrous bail reform in Albany that has led to individuals constantly being put onback on the streets despite having dozen, two dozen, three dozen prior arrests and convictions.

Sfortunatamente, a New York City, nel 2021, we saw five — quasi 500 omicidi, which is the most we have seen in a decade here in New York City. And categories of crime, everything from shootings, to rape, to robbery, to car thefts, have all skyrocketed.

Infatti, it will be interesting to know that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s home borough of the Bronx is where a third of the shootings took place in New York City, and she is one of the leading advocates of the defund the police movement.

CHAFFETZ: sì, this idea of the bail reform, getting these people back out on the street as quickly as possible, credo, is not the right way to solve this.

And you have to have prosecutors that are actually going to prosecute these crimes. A Los Angeles, with the district attorney, Guascone, you have seen it as rampant as can possibly be. And the solution ends up just being just absolutely horrendous in terms of its consequences.

I want to turn now. Let’s listen to Governor Abbott. He was interviewed by Maria Bartiromo. And I want you to listen to this and give me your reaction to it.

(INIZIA VIDEO CLIP)

GOV. GREG ABBOTT (R-TX): The cartels are advertising on TikTok to get drivers to assist, and then moving illegal immigrants around the state of Texas.

It is an issue that the Texas Department of Public Safety is working to crack down upon. But it shows the extent to which Texas law enforcement officers have to step up and deal with the challenges that are created by the Biden administration importing illegal activity into our country and into our state.

BARTIROMO: sì.

(FINE VIDEO CLIP)

CHAFFETZ: Adesso, we only have a short amount of time here.

But I think we have beenyou have been talking about this. The crime, COVID, fentanil, confini aperti, they all kind of mesh together. But you’re left with states like Texas, where Governor Abbott has got his hands full. And the administration is not doing its job.

What can you do in Congress to get the administration to actually enforce the laws that are currently on the books?

MALLIOTAKIS: Bene, come sai, those states have taken their fight to court, which is the right thing to do.

And that is why the Biden administration has been forced to reinstate the remain-in-Mexico. The sad thing is, is that now they’re even fighting to try to get the Supreme Court to revisit it again, so they can no longer enforce the remain-in-Mexico policy that was clear and was working.

La realtà è — and this is what I asked on the floor to my colleagues and the president of the United States, whose side are you on? Are you on the side of the drug cartels, or are you on the side of the American people?

When you see those numbers, out of 18-to-45-year-olds, the leading cause of death is fentanyl, you know it’s streaming over our border. You have a responsibility to do something.

CHAFFETZ: sì.

MALLIOTAKIS: And the fact that they go out of their way to continue to allow this illegal migration — quale, a proposito, this year will total more than the population of the president’s home state of Delaware and the vice president’s home city of San Francisco combined.

So we have legislation that would permanently put remain-in-Mexico into law. But we need to take back the House in order to do it, because Nancy Pelosi would never allow it to the floor under this Congress.

CHAFFETZ: sì, ci sono 23 retiring Democrats on slate here.

And Republicans better come up with a way to not just be the party of no, but just — e dire, Hey, this is our agenda. This is what we would do. Questo, if you put us in charge, is what we will actually do, because all of these retirements, these wave of retirements creates a great opportunity.

And Republicans, we’re going to have to have you back on and talk more about their agenda, what they can do.

Ma, per adesso, let’s just say happy new year, and thank you.

Congresswoman Malliotakis, thank you for joining us here on “Futures della domenica mattina.”

MALLIOTAKIS: Buon anno. Grazie.

CHAFFETZ: Tutto ok, COVID-19 has thrown the labor market into chaos.

Businesses coast to coast are having a hard time finding employees. Service industries like restaurants and bars have been particularly hard-hit by the shortage of workers.

Jon Taffer of “Salvataggio da bar” knows a thing or two about running a business. He’s coming up next.

Resta con noi.

CHAFFETZ: President Biden unveiled a plan to tackle the global supply chain crisis back in October.

But issues continue to plague most industries across the United States this new year. The alcohol industry is no exception, with one data and market analysis firm showing liquor shortages at about 11 per cento. E, a novembre, consumers paid nearly 1 percent more for drinks than a year earlier, according to the Labor Department.

Così, when will things improve? And what do bar owners do in the meantime?

Joining us now is Jon Taffer, ospite di “Bar Rescue.And if you haven’t seen this on the Paramount network, te lo devo dire, it’s a lot of fun.

Because you put some energy into this. And you know how to run a business, run a bar, run a restaurant.

Così, thanks for joining us on “Futures della domenica mattina,” and happy new year.

JON TAFFER, OSPITE, “BAR RESCUE”: Buon anno, Jason. Bello stare con te.

CHAFFETZ: Tutto ok, you’re talking to people that are actually out there doing it. They’re on the streets. They have got their restaurants. They have got their livelihood on the line.

Tell us the reality of the supply chain. What does it look like across America? And how real is it in this industry?

TAFFER: Bene, it’s compounded by itself.

Let me explain what I mean. Per esempio, you can’t get ketchup packets right now. There’s a real crisis. And if you can get them, you’re paying 40 cents each for them. Così, now you have to buy bulk ketchup. Seems simple. What do you put the bulk ketchup in?

Now you have to buy ramekins to put the ketchup in, but you can’t get the ramekins. Così, now you have this compounded issue, because of one little shift in a condiment within a restaurant.

Then you look at chicken, per esempio, Jason. A chicken breast is typically unavailable to many restaurants today. Either it’s thinner, it’s thicker, it’s bigger, or you can’t get it at all. So they’re changing to chicken thighs, and they’re trying to modify recipes.

But if you don’t know what you’re not going to get until you don’t get it, you don’t have the opportunity to change and modify your operations, your recipes, your processes, your plates. [object Window].

E poi, in a liquor business, Jason, it’s equally as bad and no better for business. And here’s the big problem. To produce, diciamo, a whiskey, bene, you need the grain. There’s an issue getting certain grains now. Then you have to distill the product. Then you have to have a label.

The label has to be approved by the federal government. That’s taking longer than ever before. Then you got to find somebody to produce the label. And if you get that done, good luck getting glass. Most bottles come from China.

There is now factories being built and starting to produce in Mexico. Ma, Jason, you will wait a year for glass. Now that you got the label, you got the glass, now you got whiskey. Whiskey has to age typically for five years or longer.

Così, this reduction in our supply of many of these spirits is not short- termine. It’s longer-term. But think of that restauranteur who comes in on a Monday morning: I can’t get this. I got to get that. I can’t get that. This won’t fit on my plate. This won’t fit in my bun. This doesn’t fit in my glass.

It’s compounded every day. Then top of it with not as many employees as we’d like to have, and it’s a nightmare.

CHAFFETZ: Bene, I want to get into that. I want to get into the labor shortages that you’re facing and that you’re seeing within the industry.

But stay with us, because we’re going to have more with Jon Taffer in just a moment, mentre guardiamo avanti “Futures della domenica mattina.”

CHAFFETZ: We are back with Jon Taffer, ospite di “Bar Rescue.

Jon, that is the best explanation I have heard about the supply chain, bar none. That was great.

Talk to us now. Give us that same type of analysis on the labor shortages. What are minimum wages doing to the reality? What are tips like for people? Because I have heard that, Hey, as minimum wage goes up, people say, ah, you’re earning more, you don’t need a tip.

What’s the reality of what’s going on in the street?

TAFFER: Bene, prima di tutto, let me explain what income is in a restaurant.

If you work in a casual restaurant, a year or so ago, Jason I wanted to promote a waiter to a host. And I had to duplicate his income to do so. Così, we sat down together, we added up his tips. He did about 20 tables a shift. Every table tipped him about $ 20.

We put it all together, he was making $ 40 an hour as a waiter. I can’t pay that to a host. Così, I abandoned that concept.

The restaurant industry provides cash every day. If you just do the math as a consumer and say, this guy has four to five people in histables in his station, he’s going to serve X-amount of hundreds of guests during a period. Do the math. It’s pretty darn good income in full-service restaurants.

Hours are flexible. Così, credici o no, I’m a believer in higher wages, but I don’t believe they should be federally determined. Every state, every region needs to know determine the payroll levels that works for it.

Come sai, in Tennessee mountains, I would pay somebody less than I would in downtown Manhattan. And I should because the prices are different in those two markets.

So I might be the first one to say this, but I think the labor model needs to follow the pricing model on a regional or state basis. That makes sense. That protects the worker, because they’re being paid at a rate that bounces to the income levels and purchasing of their community, and the business is protected. So there’s a logical way to go about this.

But the job market has been disheveled. E, Jason, if you were looking to buy a widget, and the widget market had been disheveled, you would have an open mind to new widgets. Così, people are looking for more money. They’re looking for more flexibility. They’re looking for jobs that they like. They’re dealing with child care. They’re dealing with health issues.

They have a lot of expectations as to what they want their future to be. And when the market is so disrupted, people think about change. They think about what they can do to make it better.

I suggest they reevaluate the restaurant business. If you’re a single mom, the flexible hours, the income per hour, the work environments are all pretty terrific.

CHAFFETZ: sì.

Bene, Guarda, it is a tough business. And I know, a volte, you got to go in there and you just tell them, Hey, you got to shut it down.

Ma, Jon Taffer da “Salvataggio da bar,” if you want to learn how business works, Come — the reality of what’s going on in a restaurant, I highly recommend this.

You do a great job. I think you have some of the best analysis out there.

Buon anno, and thanks for sharing your insight on how it actually does work.

TAFFER: My pleasure, Jason. È bello vederti, and happy new year.

CHAFFETZ: Buon anno.
