Bill O'Reilly defends his Nazi analogies, and T. Boone Pickens wants America on an energy plan.

>> JANUARY 27, 2011.

FROM COMEDY CENTRAL'S WORLD NEWS

HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK THIS IS

"THE DAILY SHOW" WITH JON

STEWART.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: EVERYBODY WELCOME TO

"THE DAILY SHOW."

MY NAME IS JON STEWART!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

TONIGHT'S GUEST, T. BOONE

PICKENS.

HE WILL GET US OFF OF OIL.

TONIGHT!

FOREIGN OIL!

TONIGHT!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

SPEAKING OF WHICH, WE BEGIN

TONIGHT IN THE MIDDLE EAST WHERE

THE REVOLUTION IN TUNISIA HAS SO

CAPTIVATED THE WORLD'S ATTENTION

IT EVEN MADE IT INTO TUESDAY'S

STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS.

>> THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

STANDS WITH THE PEOPLE OF

TUNISIA AND SUPPORTS THE

DEMOCRATIC ASPIRATIONS OF ALL

PEOPLE.

(APPLAUSE)

(LAUGHTER)

OH, MY GOD, MOTHER OF TWO AND

INSPIRATIONAL CITIZEN KATHY

PROCTER, STOP TAKING CREDIT FOR

EVERYTHING!

(LAUGHTER)

YOUR STORY IS GOOD ENOUGH.

WELL, NOW THAT THIRST FOR

DEMOCRACY HAS APPARENTLY SPREAD

FROM TUNISIA TO EGYPT WHERE

PROTESTORS HAVE ALSO TAKEN TO

THE STREETS EN MASSE.

>> THE FIRST DEMAND YOU CAN HEAR

IN THE CHANT "DOWN, DOWN, HOSNI

MUBARAK."

MUBARAK HAS BEEN THE PRESIDENT

OF EGYPT FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS.

>> Jon: WHAT?

THEY... THEY DON'T LIKE MUBARAK?

WHY DO THEY KEEP ELECTING HIM IN

LANDSLIDES?

(LAUGHTER)

I MEAN, THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY

SENSE.

IN 2005, HE WAS ELECTED WITH 88%

OF THE VOTE!

I MEAN, THERE'S ONLY ONE WAY YOU

CAN GET ELECTED OVER AND OVER

AGAIN WITH 90% OF THE VOTE AND

THAT IS TO BE A BELOVED LEADER.

(LAUGHTER)

OH, REALLY,?

THERE'S ANOTHER... WHAT KIND OF

FIST?

OH.

IRON.

(LAUGHTER)

SO CLEARLY THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE

ARE UPSET ABOUT A VERY SERIOUS

PROBLEM.

(LAUGHTER)

REALLY, YOU LIKE THAT?

A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH TERM

LIMITS.

WHAT RELATION THE EGYPTIAN

PEOPLE ANGRY ABOUT?

>> IN THE MARKET, THE PRICE OF

BASICS HAS GONE UP BY AROUND 20%

IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: PRICE OF CATS WENT UP

20%?

(LAUGHTER)

A NINE-POUND CAT USED TO BE,

LIKE, A BUCK AND A HALF.

NOW IT'S PROBABLY LIKE $1.80.

I GUESS IF YOU LIVE IN EGYPT AND

YOU DIDN'T RECENTLY INVEST

HEAVILY IN CATS YOU'RE (BEEP)

OUT OF LUCK.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT WE ALL SAW HOW MUCH LOVE THE

TUNISIAEN PEOPLE GOT FOR THEIR

YUP RISING.

>> AS WE MONITOR THE SITUATION

CAREFULLY WE ALL ON ALL PARTIES

TO EXERCISE RESTRAINT AND

REFRAIN FROM VIOLENCE.

>> ALL I CAN THEY MORNING IS

EGYPT HAS BEEN AN EXTREMELY

IMPORTANT ALLY SINCE ANWAR SADAT

AND WE'RE ALL WATCHING THESE

DEVELOPMENTS IN CAIRO VERY

CAREFULLY.

BEYOND THAT, I THINK I WILL NOT

COMMENT.

>> Jon: FREEDOM!

(COUGHS)

I'M SO VERY I. NO COMMENT!

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

WHAT GIVES?

>> THE PROBLEM FOR THE

ADMINISTRATION IS WE DON'T KNOW

EXACTLY WHERE IT'S GOING GO.

WE NEED ALLIES IN THE REGION.

WE HAVE A LOT THAT WE HAVE UNDER

WAY.

WE WANT TO BE FOR THE

ASPIRATIONS OF PEOPLE.

WE WANT TO BE FOR REFORM BUT

STABILITY MATTERS TO PROSPER ANY

THE GLOBAL ECONOMY.

>> Jon: AH, THE OLD FREEDOM

ASPIRATION OF PEOPLE STABILITY

BOUND.

WE WANT EGYPTIAN PEOPLE TO HAVE

FREEDOM JUST AS SOON AS WE'RE

SURE THEY'LL USE THAT FREEDOM

FOR HUGGING, NOT HURTING.

SEE, TUNISIA'S REP STATION AS A

MORE SECULAR MODERATE NATION

WHEREAS EGYPT, IT'S THE TOP ONE

OF THE REGION'S LARGEST RESERVES

OF UNTAPPED ISLAMIST RAGE.

(LAUGHTER)

THAT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE

OUTCOME OF THE REVOLUTION IS WHO

GETS THE CREDIT.

>> IRONICALLY, IT MAY HAVE BEEN

THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION AND

SECRETARY OF STATE CONDOLEEZZA

RICE'S FAMOUS SPEECH IN 2005 AT

THE AMERICAN UNIVERSITY IN CAIRO

THAT LAUNCHED THIS REVOLUTION.

>> I WOULD POINT YOU TO THE

SPEECH IN CAIRO IN 2009 WHERE

THE PRESIDENT ALSO SPECIFICALLY

ADDRESSED THIS.

>> THIS PROTEST HAS BEEN

ORGANIZED LARGELY ON FACEBOOK

AND TWITTER.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: QUICK QUESTION, JON

STEWART, "THE DAILY SHOW".

SO IF TWO SPEECHES AND A SOCIAL

MEDIA SITE IS ALL WE NEEDED TO

SPREAD DEMOCRACY, WHY DID WE

INVADE IRAQ?

WHY DIDN'T WE JUST, I DON'T KNOW

POKE THEM?

(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

SO WHO DESERVES THE CREDIT.

WHO DESERVES THE CREDIT FOR THIS

UNPRECEDENTED WAVE OF DEMOCRATIC

UPRISING SWEEPING THE MUSLIM

WORLD?

TO DISCUSS WE'RE JOINED BY OUR

PANEL OF EXPERTS.

JASON JONES, WE'LL START WITH

YOU.

>> JOHN, THIS IS ALL THANKS TO

PRESIDENT BUSH.

A DEMOCRACY IS SPREADING BECAUSE

THEY KNOW IF IT DOESN'T

AMERICA'S GOING TO GO IN THERE

AND SPREAD IT FOR THEM!

THAT'S RIGHT, U.S.A.!

U.S.A.!

(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

NOW LET'S GO AND KNOCK DOWN SOME

(BEEP) STATUES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: THAT'S A GREAT TRADITION

OF AMERICAN BINGE DRINKING.

OLIVIA?

>> JON, FREEDOM IS SPREADING

THROUGH THE MUSLIM WORLD BECAUSE

OF OBAMA AND HIS 2009 SPEECH IN

CAIRO.

HE INSPIRED AND IMPRESSED PEOPLE

TO EMBRACE DEMOCRACY AND, 19

MONTHS LATER, HERE WE ARE.

>> Jon: FROM ONE SPEECH.

>> UM, FROM ONE OBAMA SPEECH!

YOU KNOW, THEY SAY WHENEVER HE

USES ALLITERATION AN ANGEL HAS

AN ORGASM.

(LAUGHTER)

>> UM, EXCUSE ME.

EXCUSE ME.

JON STEWART?

>> SAMANTHA BEE?

YES, SAM.

>> JACKET JASON AND @ JASON.

THIS IS ALL THANKS TO TWITTER,

HASHTAG TWITTER REVOLUTION.

>> Jon: SAM, IF I UNDERSTAND

WHAT YOU'RE SAYING-- AND I'M NOT

SURE THAT I DO-- YOU'RE SAYING

SOCIAL MEDIA PLAYED THE BIGGEST

ROLE IN SPARKING THESE UPRISING.

>> D',H @ JON STEWART.

SOMETHING YOU'D KNOW IF YOUR

OVERSIZED BUTTON OLD PERSON

PHONE GOT TWITTER.

HASHTAG BURN.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: WHY DO YOU...

>> EXCUSE ME, JON.

>> Jon: AASIF MANDVI LIVE FROM

CAIRO.

AASIF, WHAT'S YOUR TAKE ON THE

SITUATION.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

WHAT'S YOUR TAKE?

>> JON, I WOULD ARGUE EACH OF

THESE NATIONS IS REACTING TO

SPECIFIC CIRCUMSTANCES UNIQUE TO

THEIR COUNTRY.

IN TUNISIA, THE HIGH PRICE OF

FOOD, IN EGYPT, PENT UP

FRUSTRATION OVER 0 YEARS OF

CORRUPT RULE.

IN YEMEN...

>> NO!

BUSH DOCTRINE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> AASIF, OBAMA TAUGHT YOUR

PEOPLE HOW TO LOVE!

(LAUGHTER)

>> I'M NOT EGYPTIAN.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WELL, YOU'RE SOMETHING LIKE

THAT.

I DON'T KNOW.

(LAUGHTER)

I THINK IT WAS A COUPLE WEEKS

AGO STEVE COHEN-- NOT THE

CHIROPRACTOR--

(LAUGHTER)

OR THE OTHER CHIROPRACTOR.

THE CONGRESSMAN FROM TENNESSEE,

HE WENT ON THE FLOOR OF THE

HOUSE AND COMPARED WITH WHAT HE

CALLED REPUBLICAN LIES ABOUT

HEALTH CARE TO THE BIG LIE,

JOSEPH GOEBBEL POPULARIZED IN

PERPETRATING NAZI ATROCITIES.

WE ALONG WITH OTHERS IN THE

MEDIA AND GOVERNMENT HIT HIM

PRETTY HARD.

DONE.

NEXT.

UNTIL...

>> THE LEADING COMMENTATORS ON

THIS NETWORK USE THIS KIND OF

LANGUAGE.

SO LET'S YOU AND I GET TOGETHER

RIGHT NOW AND SAY THAT

THERE'S...

>> THAT'S NOT TRUE.

>> WELL THAT IS... I MEAN,

LISTEN, PEOPLE CAN BE THE JUDGE

OF IT.

>> THEY CAN.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU SIT AND

WATCH OUR PROGRAMMING EVERY

NIGHT BUT I WATCH IT EVERYDAY

AND YOU'RE WRONG.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: SO I WAS SUPPOSED TO LET

THAT GO?

(LAUGHTER)

I MEAN, YOU KNOW... THEY USE

NAZI LIKE 16 YEAR USE "LIKE."

IT'S A STUTTER.

"D'UH, THERE'S NOTHING ON T.V.,

NAZI."

(LAUGHTER)

SO WE DID THE USUAL CRAP, A

BUNCH OF CLIPS, FOX HOSTS USING

THE WORD NAZI, SOMEONE DOING IT

ON MEGYN KELLY'S PROGRAM TO

MEGYN KELLY.

POINT TAKEN.

GOOD TIME HAD BY ALL.

(LAUGHTER)

AND THE SYMBIOTIC CYCLE OF CABLE

LIFE CONTINUES.

UNTIL I REALIZED I HAD HURT

SOMEONE.

(LAUGHTER)

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

SOMEONE THAT I CARE ABOUT.

>> JON STEWART SEES IT A BIT

DIFFERENTLY.

HE DID NOT DEFEND COHEN.

HE DIDN'T DEFEND THE MAN.

BUT HE BELIEVE THERE IS'S

HYPOCRISY IN PLAY IN THAT I,

YOUR HUMBLE CORRESPONDENT, AM A

PART OF IT.

IF YOU LOOK BACK IN WHAT

HAPPENED IN GERMANY YOU CANNOT

ESCAPE THE SIMILARITIES WHAT

HITLER AND HIS CUTTHROATS DID

BACK THEN AND THE HATE-FILLED

BLOCKS, WHAT THEY'RE DOING NOW.

>> Jon: THAT CLIP WAS FROM

FEBRUARY 28, 2008, AND IT WAS ED

TED BY THE STEWART FOLKS.

HERE'S THE CONTENT IN THAT

STATEMENT.

HEY.

>> Jon: WHY YOU USED THE NAZI

REFERENCE DOESN'T REALLY MATTER

IN THIS.

(LAUGHTER)

THE SEGMENT IS FOR MEGYN KELLY

TO TAKE OFFENSE TO, NOT YOU.

(LAUGHTER)

IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU, BILL.

THE SEGMENT WAS TO SHOW,

CONTRARY TO MS. KELLY'S

STATEMENT THAT IT'S NOT THE TYPE

OF RHETORIC USED ON FOX NEWS,

THAT IT ACTUALLY DOES APPEAR--

QUITE FREQUENTLY.

(LAUGHTER)

THAT'S ALL IT WAS.

WHY YOU COMPARED ARIANNA

HUFFINGTONTOR HUFFINGTON POST TO

NAZI PROPAGANDA IS IMMATERIAL IN

THIS CASE.

ALTHOUGH SINCE YOU SEEM

INTERESTED IN GETTING INTO IT...

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

THE COURT WILL ALLOW YOUR

WITNESS.

>> NANCY REAGAN FELL, FELL DOWN

AND HAD TO BE TAKEN TO THE

HOSPITAL.

SHORTLY AFTER THAT, THIS

APPEARED ON THE HUFFINGTON POST.

"LIKE HER EVIL HUSBAND, SHE HAS

LIVED FAR TOO LONG.

HERE'S HOPING THE HAG SUFFERS

FOR SEVERAL WEEKS THEN CROAKS IN

THE TUB."

NOW, I SUBMIT TO YOU, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, THAT MY COMPARESTON

THE VILE NAZI PROPAGANDA MACHINE

IS DEAD ON.

YOU CAN MAKE THE CALL ON THAT.

>> Jon: FIRST OF ALL, LET ME

THEY.

TWO THINGS.

ONE, THAT WAS A HORRIBLE THING

FOR SOMEONE TO WRITE.

AND WHATEVER VICIOUS LOSER OR,

IF I MAY PUT IT IN YOUR PARLANCE

PINHEAD, WHOEVER WROTE THAT

DESERVES CONDEMNATION.

IN FACT, TELEVISION

CONDEMNATION.

BUT BEING A HEARTLESS DOUCHE

ISN'T EXACTLY SAME AS BEING A

NAZI PROPAGANDIST.

(LAUGHTER)

AND NUMBER TWO, THE QUOTE THAT

YOU'RE USING WAS FROM A

COMMENTER ON A BLOG POST.

I'M NOT SURE THAT YOU WANT TO GO

DOWN THE NAZI ROAD WHEN YOU'RE

JUDGING AN ORGANIZATION BY THE

WORST THINGS THAT HAVE EVER BEEN

POSTED ON THAT ORGANIZATION'S

WEB SITE.

WILL THE COURT ALLOW EXHIBIT

"B"?

(APPLAUSE)

THIS IS FROM FOXNATION.COM TODAY

FROM "OBAMA BLOWS."

"HEY, MICHELLE, SAW YOUR FAT ASS

AT YOUR HUBBY'S SPEECH.

APPEARS YOU'RE HAULING ABOUT 100

EXCESS POUNDS.

TRY EXERCISE, YOU DISGUSTING

PIG."

23 PEOPLE LIKED THIS.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

AS TRULY HORRIBLE AS THESE BLOG

POSTS ARE, THAT DOESN'T MAKE

EVEN THE PEOPLE MAKING THESE

COMMENTS NAZIS OR AKIN TO NAZI

PROPAGANDISTS AND IT CERTAINLY

DOESN'T MAKE YOU OR THE

MODERATORS AT FOXNATION.COM NAZI

SYMPATHIZERS, GESTAPO, BROWN

SHIRTS OR PEOPLE WHO PLAY CASTLE

WOLFEN STEIN AND WORK FOR THE

WRONG TEAM.

(LAUGHTER)

SO MY POINT WAS, CONTRARY TO

WHAT YOUR COLLEAGUE MS. KELLY

WAS SUGGESTING-- THAT FOX

COMMENTATORS DO USE NAZI

ANALOGIES-- AND YOUR POINT

SEEMED TO BE YEAH, BUT I HAD A

GOOD REASON.

THE PROBLEM WITH THAT IS

EVERYBODY THINKS THEY HAVE A

GOOD REASON.

STEVE COHEN THOUGHT HE HAD A

GOOD REASON.

IT'S LIKE SPEEDING.

I YELLED AT STEVE COHEN FOR

SPEEDING.

MEGYN KELLY YELLED AT STEVE

COHEN FOR SPEEDING AND THEN SHE

SAID "GOOD THING WE DON'T

SPEED."

AND I SAID "LOOK AT ALL THOSE

(BEEP) PEOPLE SPEEDING RIGHT

THERE."

AND THEN YOU SAID "YOU TOOK THAT

OUT OF CONTEXT, I WAS LATE."

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, BILL...

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU... I'VE GOT

TO TELL YOU, YOU'RE LATE A LOT.

>> IT'S NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

THE KKK AND THE NAZIS WHO HAVE

WEB SITES THAN THE DAILY KOS.

THESE FAR-LEFT NAZIS-- AND

THAT'S WHAT THEY ARE--

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> Jon: BILL, I ACTUALLY RESPECT

YOU.

I EVEN LUH... I EVEN LUH...

(LAUGHTER)

I EVEN LIKE... I LIKE YOU.

AND I LIKE THE FACT THAT YOU

WILL COME ON OTHER SHOWS AND BE

CHALLENGED AND HAVE OTHERS ON

YOUR SHOW CHALLENGE YOU, UNLIKE

SOME OF YOUR COLLEAGUES.

GLENN BECK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

BUT HONESTLY, I STAND BY THE

BIT.

TRUTH IS, ALL I WANTED WAS FOR

MEGYN KELLY TO (BEEP).

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK, MY GUEST

TONIGHT, HE IS THE FOUNDER AND

CHAIRMAN OF BULLPEN CAPITAL,

PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW

T. BOONE PICKENS.

IS

(APPLAUSE)

NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

(APPLAUSE)

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US AGAIN.

SO HAVE YOU... YOU FOUNDED

BULLPEN CAPITAL.

>> I DID.

>> Jon: HOW UPSET WERE YOU WHEN

THE INITIALS BULLPEN TURNED INTO

WHAT THEY TURNED... B.P..

>> WELL, I FEEL LIKE THEY TOOK

OFF ON MY NAME.

AND IT DIDN'T HELP.

>> Jon: NO, I DID NOT.

THEY, IN FACT, STOLE IT.

LET ME ASK YOU THIS, SO YOU WERE

ON TWO YEARS AGO, AND AT THE

TIME YOU WERE DISCUSSING HOW IN

TEN YEARS YOU FELT LIKE WE WOULD

BE OFF OF FOREIGN OIL.

>> NO.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: IN 20 YEARS YOU FELT...

IN 50 YEARS...

>> NO.

>> Jon: 30 YEARS?

(LAUGHTER)

WHAT WAS THE TIME FRAME THAT YOU

WERE LOOKING AT TO GET US OFF?

>> WHAT I WANTED TO GET US OFF

OF WAS OPEC OIL.

>> Jon: OPEC OIL.

>> RIGHT.

SEE, WE IMPORT 13 MILLION

BARRELS A DAY.

>> Jon: OF OPEC OIL?

>> NO, FIVE OF IT COMES FROM

OPEC.

>> Jon: THAT'S WHO YOU WANT TO

ELIMINATE.

TEN YEARS.

>> YEAH, WE CAN DO IT.

WE CANNOT THEM OUT IN TEN YEARS.

>> Jon: WELL, THIS WAS TWO YEARS

AGO THAT YOU HAD SAID THIS.

>> YES.

>> Jon: HOW MUCH CLOSER TO OUR

GOAL NOW... WE ARE 20% IN.

HAVE WE KNOCKED OFF 20% OF OPEC?

>> NO.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: SO WOULD YOU SAY, SIR,

WE'RE BEHIND?

(LAUGHTER)

>> WELL, WE'RE TEN YEARS... IT'S

STILL TEN YEARS.

>> Jon: IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN ALL

AT ONCE.

WE'LL DO NOTHING AND THEN IN TEN

YEARS...

(LAUGHTER)

BOOM?

>> NO, THAT'S NOT GONNA WORK,

EITHER.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

>> NO, YOU'VE GOT TO GET

STARTED.

WE'VE GOT TO GET STARTED.

BUT IF YOU REMEMBER, THE

PRESIDENT TOLD US WHEN HE GOT

THE NOMINATION, HE SAID NOW THIS

IS JULY OF '08 8.

HE SAID IN TEN YEARS WE WILL NOT

IMPORT ANY OIL FROM THE MIDDLE

EAST.

I LOVED IT.

IT'S A GREAT STATEMENT.

>> Jon: NOW, YOU KNOW... BOY, I

HATE TO DO THIS.

I FEEL LIKE I'M TELLING YOU

SANTA'S NOT REAL.

(LAUGHTER)

YOU KNOW, THERE HAVE BEEN SOME

OTHER PRESIDENTS IN YOUR

LIFETIME WHO MAY HAVE MADE A

SIMILAR STATEMENT GOING ALL THE

WAY BACK TO, LET'S SAY, GROVER

CLEVELAND.

(LAUGHTER)

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE

HEARD AS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE

OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN

FROM THE TIME OF NIXON.

>> I USE YOUR DEAL ON MY WEB

SITE.

>> Jon: OH, THE LITTLE... THE

COMPILATION OF ALL THE

PRESIDENTS SAYING THAT?

>> YEAH.

>> Jon: WHY DO YOU BELIEVE IT

NOW WHAT MAKES YOU BELIEVE IT

NOW?

>> IT'S GOT TO BE DONE FOR THE

COUNTRY.

ABSOLUTELY.

WE'VE GONE 40 YEARS WITH NOW

ENERGY PLAN.

DO YOU KNOW WHO ELSE DOESN'T

HAVE AN ENERGY PLAN IN THE WORLD

>> Jon: LICK TEN AND SEEN TBe√∑

>> NOBODY!

>> Jon: NOBODY?

>> NOBODY, WE'RE THE ONLY ONES

WITHOUT AN ENERGY PLAN.

>> Jon: IS ANYONE ELSE TAKING

THIS STEP TO NATURAL SGHAS ARE

THERE OTHER COUNTRIES THAT HAVE

MADE ADVANCES THAT WE HAVE NOT?

>> YEAH.

THERE ARE OTHERS HAVE THAT HAVE

TAKEN THE PICKENS PLAN.

CHINA.

>> Jon: THE PICKENS PLAN?

>> YEAH.

>> Jon: (LAUGHS)

>> THEY HAVE.

IT WAS IN THE "WALL STREET

JOURNAL."

>> Jon: I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU,

THAT IS CATCHY.

CHINA HAS...

>> THE "WALL STREET JOURNAL" HAD

THE OTHER DAY THAT CHINA HAS

ACCEPTED THE PICKENS PLAN.

>> Jon: WHAT IS THE PICKENS PLAN

AND WHY DID CHINA GET IT AND DID

YOU OFFER IT TO US FIRST?

(LAUGHTER)

>> I DID, OF COURSE.

>> Jon: WELL, WHAT DID WE SAY?

>> WE... WE'RE WORKING ON IT.

SON OF A GUN!

>> RIGHT.

SON OF A BITCH.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: DID YOU TELL THEM CHINA

WAS TAKING IT?

>> I DID.

BUT...

(LAUGHTER)

YOU'RE... THIS... I MEAN THE

CHINESE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES.

>> Jon: WHO ELSE?

>> TODAY... YESTERDAY ABU DHABI

SAID THEY'RE GOING TO USE

NATURAL GAS FOR TRANSPORTATION

FUEL AND GUESS WHAT?

>> Jon: WHAT?

>> WELL, THEY'LL SELL THE OIL TO

US.

(LAUGHTER)

THEY'RE GOING TO USE NATURAL

GAS.

WELL, IT'S ALL OVER.

IRANIANS HAVE ALSO DONE THE SAME

THING.

THEY'RE GONE TO NATURAL GAS FOR

TRANSPORTATION.

>> Jon: OH, THAT'S GREAT.

THAT'S REALLY GOOD.

I'M REALLY HAPPY FOR THEM.

THAT'S EXCITING.

(LAUGHTER)

GIVE THEM MORE TIME TO WORK ON

THE NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

THAT'S EXCITING.

WHAT IS IT... IF THIS IS TOO

GOOD TO BE TRUE-- AND WE ARE

CONDITIONED TO BE SOMEWHAT...

IT'S LIKE WHEN YOU GET BROKEN UP

AND YOUR HEART GETS SCARRED.

WE ARE CONDITIONED TO BE

CAUTIOUS.

IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE SO

IT MUST BE.

IS IT HORRIBLY ON FAITH.

IS THAT WHAT IT IS?

IS IT THAT WE CAN'T DO IT

WITHOUT POISONING THE COUNTRY?

WHAT IS IT THAT'S KEEPING US

FROM DOING IT?

>> FRACKING STARTED IN 1953 AND

I DO NOT ONE WELL... THEY ALWAYS

USED TO SAY IT CONTAMINATE IT IS

AQUIFER.

I'VE NEVER SEEN THAT HAPPEN.

AND YOU'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT

BEING THE FIRST READER.

I'VE BEEN HERE.

I HAVE FRANKED 3,000 WELLS IN MY

LIFE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> YOU'RE LIKE THAT WILT

CHAMBERLAIN OF TRACKING.

(LAUGHTER)

>> I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

DAMAGED.

>> Jon: I'M SURE THERE ARE

PEOPLE WHO WOULD SAY "I HAVE.

IT'S BEEN ON MY LAND."

IS THERE A WAY TO DO IT AND

STILL PROTECT THE HEALTH OF THE

LAND AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ON

TOP OF THESE HUGE RESERVES?

>> THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL

HUNDRED THOUSAND WELLS FRACKED.

YES, SURE THERE IS.

THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.

>> Jon: WE CAN DO IT.

>> OH....

>> Jon: YOU FEEL CONFIDENT?

>> I FEEL... I KNOW.

>> Jon: TEN YEARS.

>> EIGHT YEARS?

>> OH, WE COULD....

>> Jon: 30 YEARS?

>> WE COULD DO... WE CAN... THE

FIRST PLACE WE HAVE TO START...

I MEAN, OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING

WHAT I'M TRYING TO GET AMERICA

TO DO.

WE'VE GOT TO HAVE AN ENERGY

PLAN.

ENERGY PLAN MEANS YOU'VE GOT TO

GET ON YOUR OWN RESOURCES.

>> Jon: HERE'S WHAT WE'RE GOING

DO.

I'M GOING GO TO COMMERCIAL

BREAK.

DO YOU HAVE FIVE MINUTES TO

EXPLAIN THE ENERGY PLAN WILL BE

AND HOW THEY'RE GOING TO

IMPLEMENT IT?

>> I'LL STAY AN HOUR.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: THAT'S OUR SHOW.

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK AT 11:00.

HERE IT IS, YOUR MOMENT OF ZEN.

>> IT'S THE NUMBER 13, I'M

TRYING TO TELL YOU OUT HERE, 15

INCHES OF FUN HERE AT JERSEY

MIKE'S AND I'LL TELL YOU, IF

THERE'S ANY NI
