tv Early Start CNN November 1, 2013 2:00am-3:01am PDT
people of boston and from all of us, even people like me that don't know the difference between the strike zone and twilight zone, congratulations, although i'm not that bad. so good to see you smile, incredibly, completely ridiculously good. that's it for us. thanks for watching. "early start" begins now. streets and cars are under water in texas. our indra petersons is tracking the latest forecast. >> he thought as the
chief of staff to explore the possibility of what hillary on the ticket would mean for president obama in 2012.
>> the political bombshell that everybody is talking about this morning. the explosive new report revealing there was talk of dumping vice president biden for hillary clinton. justice for kj is coming! >> the launch of an investigation into the mysterious death of a teenager who was found in a rolled-up mat inside his high school gymnasium. >> happy friday! >> i'm michaela pereira in for zorai zoraida. >> i'm john berman. >> it feels like it's still october. deadly and ferocious flooding in central texas. more than a
thousand homes evacuated, heavy rain sending creeks and rivers over their banks and into communities already devastated by a punishing drought and awful conditions there.
at least two people were killed overnight. plenty of pictures. dramatic rescues. some by helicopter. they were playing out in neighborhood after neighborhood. >> my dogs kept making noise and i thought, shh, a couple times and then i heard dripping, and so i got up and, you know, the carpet is wet and it just got worse and worse and worse. >> the water came too fast. there wouldn't be time to get the people out of their houses. the water was so bad. >> it came so fast. the national weather service reports up to 14 inches of rain fell in some communities southwest of austin. 14 inches. emergency crews in the area responding to more than 100 rescue calls and one of the men killed was swept right out of his car by the raging floodwaters. just simply treacherous conditions there. the question now is where does
that storm go next and how much more rain can we expect and indra petersons is here with the latest. >> it's not just the rain but also the wind. take you back in time to show you. this is the system that moved through yesterday and kicked through the area as we put this forward in time. look at all of these reports of damage as the system made its way to the east so that is what we will continue to watch today what happens as the system moves east. showed you the wind reports. today as the system is farther east we will look at the advisories for the potential of strong winds into the mid-atlantic today and winds as high as 60 miles per hour. as the system continues to progress in the east you'll notice rain down to the southeast. so we are looking at much the entire and seaboard. we have thunderstorm watches out there so we are looking for still the threat for heavier thunderstorms embedded within the system that makes its way across today. rainfall amounts not as high as what we showed you in texas. higher amounts concentrated
farther to the south and closer to the gulf you're getting more of that moisture source there. the big story through the weekend is not only the storm but look at the temperatures we are expecting in this chain. boston is beautiful 70 and the high goes to 45 degrees on sunday. new york city our high is 48 so we are looking to a cold front making its way through. definitely a huge drop as this springtime air. >> there was talk of a change to the 2012 ticket possibly swapping vice president joe biden for hillary clinton. that according to "the new york times" reporting on a new book "double down," written by journalists mark halpern and john heilemann. they searched whether the former first lady could boost the president's re-election chances. here is jonathan martin last
night on ac 360. >> campaigns don't spend the kind of money on polling and focus groups unless they are seriously exploring something. it was only known by a half dozen of the top obama senior advisers. >> martin says vice president biden didn't eaven know the president's top advisers were considering replacing him. another revelation mitt romney considered chris christie as his vice president candidate before deciding on paul iran. a big i told you so with more americans dropped by their insurance carriers because of obama care. republicans have been quick to point out they predicted this exact scenario back in 2010 even before that when the president was making a lot of promises that so far have not panned out. chief congressional correspondent dana bash has
more. >> the gentleman from ohio, mr. boehner. >> reporter: march 2010 then minority leader john boehner came to the floor. he issued this warning. >> look at this bill! ask yourself do you really believe that if you like the health plan that you have that you can keep it? no, you can't. >> reporter: it's just one example of a republican effort before the health care bill became law of the land to push back on this presidential sales pitch. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> reporter: that was the summer of 2009 during the heat of the health care legislative battle and so was this. >> on the is it stump the
president says if you like your plan you can keep your plan but if you read the bill, that just isn't so. for starters within five years, every health care plan will have to meet a new federal definition for coverage. one that your current plan might not match even if you like it. >> reporter: fast forward three years, that is exactly what is happening. insurance companies are dropping americans all across the country from their health plans many because policies don't have coverage now required under obama care. democrats trying to calm concerned constituents call it a good thing. >> if we don't enforce this policy, insurance companies can continue offering flimsy coverage that disappears when people actually need it and no one should nt that. >> reporter: the hhs secretary struggled to explain some current plans are no longer available because they are bad for consumers and no longer legal. >> many women are charged 50% more than men. that will be illegal. >> reporter: the problem? that's not what people expected
when they heard this over and over. >> if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. >> reporter: while republicans are eager to say i told you so, privately democrats are increasingly regretful that the plans didn't pan out. steny hoyer said they have been more precise in explaining people may not be able to keep their current plans if they don't meet new mandatory coverage. big tech companies are calling for new laws to stop intelligence agencies like the nsa from hacking into their data centers. a letter sent to senate leaders thursday, facebook, google, apple, yahoo! microsoft and aol all demanding greater transparency in surveillance programs and asking lawmakers to pass reforms that could give greater protection to privacy with more oversight and catable.

israeli feared was headed toward hezbollah. the israeli government has not acknowledged any of the attacks. controversy this morning over comments made by the father of texas senator ted cruz. in a newly released video, it highlights a clip of ralph cruz calling the united states a crisp nation telling the crowd, we need to send barack obama back to kenya. listen. >> we need to send barack obama back to chicago and i'd like to send him back to kenya. >> spokesperson for the senator declines cnn's offer to respond to those comments and said pointing us to a statement given by mother jones saying, quote, these selective quotes taken out of context mischaracterized the
concept. like many americans he feels america is on the wrong track and adding that pastor cruz does not speak for the senator. >> but he does campaign for the senator and has a following of his own. >> a bit of a rock star in the movement. >> a big rock star. 11 minutes after the hour right now. coming up, a surprising turnaround in a mysterious death. >> this time, what we need are people with facts and knowledge of the circumstances surrounding mr. johnson's death to present those to us. >> months after police called this death an accident, a new investigation launched into how a teenage boy ended up dead in his high school gymnasium. retailers slashing prices ahead of schedule this holiday season. why is black friday arriving so early this year, john berman? >> way early. like today! plus, it is time for your

start." the mysterious death after georgia teen is getting a federal review. u.s. prosecutors said thursday they will investigate the death of kendrick johnson who was found dead in january. he was found rolled up inside a gym mat in his high school gymnasi gymnasium. local police called it a freak accident but his parents, they believe it was murder. cnn's victor blackwell reports. huddled around a portable television on a south georgia street corner where they staged an eight-month sit-in, the kendrick family has watched the announcement they have been waiting for.
>> i'm of the opinion my office will conduct a formal review of the facts and investigation surrounding the death of kendrick johnson. >> hallelujah! thank you, jesus! >> reporter: the second big victory for his family. on thursday, the high school was ordered to hand over the full investigative file including the surveillance video. barbara english is his grandmother. >> i'm so happy and i know we trust in the lord and we hadn't been down here rallying for 32 weeks for nothing. >> reporter: michael moore called in the fbi to assist his office in the investigation and to get answers to several basic questions in the teen's january death. >> first, what was the cause of mr. johnson's death? second, was mr. johnson's death the result of a crime? third, if mr. johnson's death was the result of a crime, who committed that crime? >> reporter: kendrick's parents never believed the local sheriff's explanation kendrick suffocated after squeezing his 19-inch shoulders into the
14 1/2-inch rolled gym mat opening to reach his shoe in the middle of a school day. they spoke with wolf blitzer moments after the announcement. >> i believe indeed that he was murdered. >> do you have any idea who may have murdered him? >> no, i don't. that's what we want to get down to the truth. >> the only question we want to know is why are they covering up for whoever killed their son. >> reporter: questions to the sheriff's department has made the johnson's suspicion, including why these shoes found yards from kendrick's body were not collected as evidence and how this bloodstain ended up on this wall in the gym and why investigators never found whose blood it was. and questions have also lingered about the state's autopsy. the official cause of death was positional asphyxia, kendrick was suffocated by his own body weight, but a second autopsy paid for by the johnson's found that kendrick died from blunt force
trauma, a blow to the neck. hundreds have rallied for months for answers and moore says he's received calls from many of the johnson supporters. >> i appreciate the depth of those concerns, but at this time, what we need are people with facts and knowledge of the circumstances surrounding mr. johnson's death to present those to us. >> reporter: in a statement to cnn, the lowndes county sheriff's department writes, quote. while the sheriff's office has every confidence his officers investigation was handled with the necessary diligence to make sure all leads were examined and exhausted, he welcomes the u.s. attorneys' further review of the case. >> justice for kj is coming. >> reporter: kendrick's family is grateful for the investigation but they call it a stepping stone. they say their push for answers will continue. >> got to continue to fight on until justice is done for kj. >> victor blackwell, cnn, macon, georgia. >> our thanks to victor for that report. let's tip our hat to victor
right now who is doing tenacious reporting on this story and pushing for answers for weeks and weeks. >> hopefully, kendrick's family can get some effort of closure. >> absolutely. got a shocking political scandal brewing. a big city mayor caught on tape smoking crack. police apparently have the video of toronto myer rob ford doing that, smoking crack. the rumors have been swirling for a while. ford has denied them. thursday, he vowed not to step down. >> no reason to resign. i'm going to go back to return my phone calls and be out doing what the people elected me to do and not spend taxpayers money and run a great government. >> police say the video was recovered during a drug and gang related raid. it has thrown canada's biggest city into turmoil.
still the police of chief says nothing to warrant criminal charges but he did add as a citizen of the city i'm disappointed. >> this has been going on so much time and so much controversy and so much intrigue, people have died and photos and videos of the mayor, you know, seen smoking crack or something. it's been quite a controversy there in toronto and for the nation. it's not necessarily a point of pride for many canadians. 47 people aboard this plane that was going from san francisco to san antonio but forced to make an emergency landing in phoenix and plane taken to an isolated part of the airport and did a search and no dangerous materials were found on board but the bomb squad and police dogs were found in to search the plane and nothing found so the jet was allowed to go on its way. walmart is getting a one month head-start on the holiday shopping season offering deep

miami dolphins may have saved their season last night. they beat the cincinnati bengals in a safety in overtime. >> this is halloween night. did you expect a normal football game? on any normal night this would have been the play of the game. giovani bernard ran for more than 100 yards to get the score.
sweet play, yes. but this play is the one that steals the show in overtime. the dolphins won the game on a rare walkoff safety and cameron wake takes down andy don't think and just the third time in nfl history, a game would end on and overtime safety. miami wins 22-20. as a franchise, the dolphins are a perfect 6-0 when they play on halloween night. only two games into the nba season and already the clippers chris paul put up a record setting night. the first player in nba history to score 42 points. he got 15 assists and six steals. lebron james is on the only other player to put up 40 and 15 in a game. the six steals that puts cp 3 in a plas by place by himself. kobe bryant will wake up this morning and see a deposit in his bank account for $24

it looks like a river. oh, my god! >> storm crisis happening now. overnight, a deadly storm pounding parts of texas. that rain is still coming down this morning. our indra petersons is tracking the areas hardest hit. is america spying on the pope? the explosive new claim about the nsa as the white house finally knits spying by the u.s. government has gone too far. we climbed out and got on top of the bus. i thought i was going to die. >> terrifying. a school bus plunging off a bridge and into the creek. how the children inside managed
to get out alive. >> terrific. >> welcome back. i'm john berman. >> i'm michaela pereira in for zoraida sambolin today. a punishing drought led to deadly flash flooding in 24 hours. a monster storm swamping central texas overnight. two people have died. one of them ripped right from his car by the raging waters. up to 14 inches of rain falling in some neighbors south of boston leading to more than a hundred rescues. >> drainage ditch on the side of it and i went to see how high the water was and when i looked out, there was no drainage ditch. that was just water out there. >> the water came too fast. there wouldn't have been time to get the people out of the houses. i was at mcdonald. my wife said the water is inside the garage. it didn't happen last time so i came and the water was so bad.
>> heavy damage and power outage from the storm reported along the missouri and kentucky border. these pictures are from cape girardeau in missouri where 2,000 people in the dark this morning. power lines and trees are down throughout the entire region. >> a busy night for our cnn weather center. let's talk to indra right now about the latest on the storm and what can be expected now. have we seen the worst of it? >> looks like we have seen the worst of it. we don't have the severe weather threat and high we did yesterday or expanded but take a look at the system. 150 more reports of wind damage as the made its way away and tornado reports in louisiana and illinois ps as we see that system move to the east and northeast we are looking for high wind advisories in the mid-atlantic. what are we looking at? the system is going to continue to progress to the east today and as it does so we are looking at rain all up and down the
eastern seaboard but nothing like what we saw in texas. the heaviest rain to the south. we have a threat for severe thunderstorms. we are looking at that in through the mid-atlantic today and keep our eyes open in the morning hours and eventually the system will make its way off the east coast an taper off. 1 to 2 inches of rain really in the forecast today. the bigger story is the strong winds and as we go through the week huge temperature drop and three cold fronts making its way through the areas so highs in the 40s. we did mention the lows and talking about 20s and 30s for the lows. >> brace yourself. you heard 20s. >> yeah. >> i think my 20s were more familiar to me than those 20s. >> a little more exciting. >> it's been a long time. a long time. thanks, indra. for the first time secretary of state john kerry is acknowledging the nsa has overstepped its breach. kerry insisting innocent people are not being abused by the agencies intelligence gathering operations, but he does admit
there have been transgressions. >> in some cases, i acknowledge, as has the president, some of these actions have breached too far and promise it doesn't happen in the future. >> reporter: the obama administration is trying to make things right with its alleys following reports that the nsa has been spying on friendly foreign leaders and now the agency is denying an italian report that it listened in while in selecting a new pope. let's get more on that from cnn's brian todd. >> reporter: it's a place where secrecy is almost celebrated, where changes in leadership are signaled with smoke. but could even the vatican be vulnerable to nsa eavesdropping? a report in italy's panorama magazine saying the nsa intercepted calls into and out of the residence where cardinals stayed before the recent papal conclave where pope francis was chosen. on the heels made by dared
snowden that the nsa listened in on angela merkel cell phone calls and may have had access from dozens of other world leaders some say it doesn't matter. u.s. intelligence officials all but knit they do spy on america's allies. >> some of this reminds me a lot of the classic movie "casablan a "casablanca." >> my god, gamblizing going on here. some sort of thing. >> reporter: they say one of the way the nsa can reestablish trust. >> if it came forward and was more open and more transparent about what it does and why it does these things, including spying on our friends and allies, i think people may say that makes sense. >> reporter: the vatican responded to the panorama report saying we are not concerned. others say if anyone is listening in on the vatican, there could be good reason. analysts say the papacy is plugged in syria where western intelligence agencies sometimes don't have eyes or ears. >> there are priests and nuns
who have boots on the ground in at least places and passing information up the food chain what is really happening and it would not surprise me at all if the american government were interested in gleaning some of that insight. >> reporter: whether it's spying on the vatican or nod, the analysts we spoke to said a big part of the nsa's problem now is one of image, that it's been so secretive for so long that the people don't know what to believe. brian todd, cnn, washington. edward snowden's attorney saying snowden is starting a job today working at a major undisclosed russian website. the 30-year-old is wanted here in the united states on charges of espionage and theft of government property. russia granted snowden asylum earlier this year. the policy is constitutional and removing a judge from a case.
three-judge appellate panel ruling the lower court decision appeared to be bias. critics say the stop and frisk law amounts to racial profiling. city official insist the practice has cut crime. >> probably the lowest it's been in -- since in october 31st in perhaps the 1940s so that is how safe the city is. our tactics and strategies i think have worked and continue to work. >> other appeals to stop and frisk are still pending. another big legal decision to tell you about. most of texas tough abortion restrictions struck down this week have been reinstated now by a federal appeals court. under the law abortion doctors must have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. the court ruled it can take effect immediately while a lawsuit challenging the restrictions proceeds but this just means that at least a dozen clinics in texas will not be able to perform abortions. a very close call for ten
kids and the driver of their school bus. it toppled off a low lying bridge and into a frigid fast moving creek. this near sdast taking place yesterday afternoon in douglas kansas, 30 miles southeast of wichita. the bus winding up partially emerged on its side with the children managing to escape through that roof hatch before being rescued by first responders. >> a couple of kids were yelling and a couple of kids were crying. i thought i was going to die. >> what was going through your mind? >> that i would never, ever see my grandma again. >> how terrifying for those kids. there has been a whole lot of rain in the area recently. investigators believe the bus driver may have ran into standing water before hydroplaning into the creek. another caution to remember. standing water can move a lot faster and you forget the power of it and indra has warned us about that time and time again.
>> good for hear the kids are safe this morning. dramatic video of a truck crashing through the wall of an auto repair shop. two employees narrowly escaping with their lives. you can see one of them, i think, hopping into a customer's car before the crash. oh, my goodness. he says the debris came crashing down and seconds later it could have killed him. investigators are trying to figure out what caused the 58-year-old truckdriver to lose on control. coming up, an incredible discovery. >> they are sophisticated. they are high tech. they include railways, push carts, ventilation systems. >> an underground railroad funneling millions of dollars in drugs between the u.s. and mexico. we are going to take you inside that elaborate tunnel. >> crazy. my customers can shop around. but it doesn't usually work that way with health care. with unitedhealthcare, i get information on quality rated doctors, treatment options and cost estimates,
calling it a super tunnel. it is the length of six football fields connecting tijuana and san diego underground. this is serious, folks. our miguel marques has a closer look. >>. >> reporter: this is the door where the agents burst down and the agents entered on the u.s. side in the tunnel. 600 yards or so south of where we are standing in mexico a few feet from the border there is another hole that goes down into the ground and where this tunnel zig zas zags izags its way to t here. law enforcement says the investigation is only beginning and they examine apect and hope
arrests. >> i will offer on there to the drug cartels. we are by no means finished here and don't say we didn't warrant you. you go underground, you will be fou found. >> reporter: the fact they found cocaine they believe the cartels are more desperate to get coke and hard drugs in. that said the amount of hard drugs coming into the san diego and southern california region has grown in recent years in cocaine and methamphetamine and heroin going up. the big message from law enforcement is whether you're going underthe border over it or in you will extra light plains they have been doing in recent years or around it by ocean and boats farther up the california coast, they will be busted.
miguel marques, cnn, in california. >> you have to step one step or ten steps behind the bad guys. >> its not easy. >> john berman said building an underground tunnel between the set of the "early start" and "new day" set. what do you think? >> we have no thoughts. >> we are caught up in something else. >> we find out details of a new book alleges the obama campaign was talking about dropping vice president biden from the ticket. also some details of who was on mitt romney's short list. we will talk about the intrigue and what it all means. a shocking story out of texas that we are going to be talking about. a brave police officer, a mother of two, who was shot in the face but that did not stop her from chasing the gunmen. one was caught and two others still on the loose. amazing story and bring that story to you coming up. >> i can't believe she is still
