7:00 am
but let's get right to those ominous moves in north korea. martha raddatz is in seoul, south korea, where she is tracking the latest for us. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it is not just threatening words from north korea this morning, but u.s. officials believe they are about to test not one, but two missiles. apparently kim jong-un feels it will help his bargaining position over nuclear weapons. satellites have been tracking the mobile launchers' fuel and missile components on their way to north korea's eastern shore. the missile components for the musudan midrange missiles placed on a train traversing the countryside but the search continues for the actual site where the launcher and missiles have ended up. the north koreans have never tested this missile before. it is not capable of reaching the u.s. mainland, but with a target range of around 2,000 miles, it poses a clear threat to our allies in the region and u.s. bases in okinawa and
7:01 am
possibly guam. given the placement on the eastern shore the trajectory of these missiles would likely pass over japan where missile defenses are in place. >> they want everyone to become so rattled and scared that the world appeases and accepts north korea with a new status quo, with north korea as a nuclear weapons state, sanctions are lifted and we begin a kind of normal relationship with a new beginning. but that's not happening. >> reporter: in fact, a launch would only make things worse and the risk of mistakes causing serious damage either on purpose or because of the technical failure could mean a robust response from the u.s. and its allies. u.s. officials believe the launch could take place any time and with little warning because it is very difficult to track mobile missiles. josh and robin. >> all right there, martha, thank you.
7:02 am
>> volatile saber-rattling continues. and we're going to turn now to the death of roger ebert yesterday at the age of 70. he was among the country's most influential film critics and gave us that trademark thumbs up of his until the very end. among his last words written just days ago, very fitting, "i'll see you at the movies." abc's chris connelly remembers the singular roger ebert. >> reporter: tributes to film critic roger ebert keep coming. on social media and at his star on the hollywood walk of fame. his widow chaz called their time together "more epic and beautiful than a movie." "roger loved movies. they were his life," said steven spielberg. "i miss my dear friend" tweeted spike lee. >> "full metal jacket" is too little and too late. >> reporter: he wielded his trademark thumb up and down in judgment while reviewing new releases from 1975 to 1999 alongside gene siskel. >> what about the movies, what
7:03 am
about the dialogue, what about the characters? >> reporter: after siskel's death with richard roeper. >> felt like you were beginning a conversation with him about the movies. he knew film inside out but never condescended to the audience. >> reporter: ebert deepened viewers' appreciation of the movies and telling them having an opinion was okay. >> i would have loved to be present at the story where they convinced themselves getting away with murders was a filmable concept. how did anyone decide this movie should be made? >> reporter: in 1975 ebert became the first film critic to win the pulitzer prize. he even wrote the screenplay to the 1970 movie "beyond the valley of the dolls." >> this is my happening and it freaks me out. >> reporter: a battle with cancer that began in 2002 would transform his appearance. it took away his voice. >> that's just like i was in life, you could never shut me up. >> reporter: which was replaced by a computerized one. >> but at least it sounds like me when i type in anything, it will read in my voice. >> it's incredible.
7:04 am
>> reporter: his life's influential work made the movies and the audience better and for that, millions of thumbs way, way up. for "good morning america," chris connelly, abc news, los angeles. >> ah, and the most fitting tribute from our audience joining us today outside in times square, and as chris said, he loved the movies and that was a hallmark of his. >> we're thinking of his wife, chaz, and his family. okay, josh. we'll turn now to the white house and president obama raising eyebrows on two fronts with some surprising comments about california's attorney general. but we are also learning about some dramatic moves he is about to make with his annual budget. abc's jonathan karl is at the white house, and jon, this is about cuts to social security and medicare, considered a risky move. >> reporter: that's right, robin. this is something we've never seen from a democratic president in the budget that will come out
7:05 am
next week, i am told the president will include cuts to medicare for wealthy retirees and reducing the annual cost of living increases for social security. these are the two most cherished programs for democrats, of course, the budget also says that he would only do this if republicans agree to some $500 billion in tax increases and as you know, robin, they're not ready to do that. >> yes, that's true. also, raising eyebrows overnight the president out in california at a fund-raiser speaking about the attorney general for california. can you enlighten us on what the president said, jon? >> reporter: this is about kamala harris, one of the fastest rising democratic stars in the country. she's even mentioned, robin, as a possible future presidential candidate, but at a fund-raiser last night, a closed fund-raiser, the president said of harris "she is brilliant and she is dedicated and she is tough. she also happens to be by far the best-looking attorney general in the country." now, some of the president's own allies have taken offense to that. i talked to a senior white house official this morning who would
7:06 am
say only that harris and the president have been friends for a long time and that he went out of his way last night and on many other occasions to talk about her many qualifications not just the way she looks. >> okay there, jon, have a great weekend. we appreciate it. george will have all the latest on the budget sunday on "this week." >> josh. we're going to turn to the tense situation in texas with new alleged threats against law enforcement officials even as slain district attorney mike mclelland and his wife are being laid to rest this morning. much concern at this hour that there could be more attacks coming. abc's john schriffen has the latest in kaufman, texas. john? >> reporter: good morning. right now, authorities are laying down a texas-size crackdown after numerous threats to local public figures. this morning, two men are behind bars, each held on bail of $1 million after allegedly making threats to kaufman county justice officials. authorities say robert allan miller intimidated a prosecutor
7:07 am
who is due to try him on a criminal charge. while nick morale is accused of leaving a threatening message towards a public official on a local tip line. this coming just days after county district attorney mike mclelland and his wife cynthia were found shot to death inside their home. thursday afternoon, authorities evacuated the church of the mclelland family memorial after receiving a bomb threat from an unidentified male on a disposable cell phone. already on hand for extra security, snipers lining the church roof with bomb-sniffing dogs patrolling the parking lot. >> i will stand up any day shoulder to shoulder with my parents and say that they're not going to win. >> reporter: more than 1,000 mourners, including governor rick perry gathered at the first baptist church to pay their respects to the mclellands. perry pledging an additional $100,000 reward for any information regarding the mclellands' death as well as the gruesome january slaying of assistant district attorney mark hasse. >> it is our hope and our
7:08 am
expectation that these rewards will help convince those who may be holding important information to come forward. >> reporter: meanwhile, the interim district attorney speaking for the first time on thursday refusing to back down. >> we're unnerved a little bit but we're going to stick to our oath and we're showing up to work every single day to fulfill that oath, serve this community. >> reporter: and authorities say at this point they don't have any evidence to connect the two men in custody with the mclelland and hasse murders. but they are setting their bail unusually high to send a message, they are not taking these threats lightly. josh? >> thank you, john. our thoughts are certainly with the mclelland family this morning. we're going to turn now to "gma weekend" co-anchor bianna golodryga with other top developing stories this morning. good morning everyone at home. we begin with breaking news about the economy. new evidence this morning that it's becoming a lot harder to

7:13 am
said, yes, i see you and i could not see her yet because she was on top of a rock behind a bush. >> reporter: jack was only a half mile from where they left the car, barefoot and clinging to a cliffside ledge no bigger than a yoga mat. >> was going in and out of consciousness. >> reporter: this morning, kyndall is recovering in the hospital finally reunited with her parents and not a moment too soon, robin. police are telling us these two teens are truly lucky to be alive. robin. >> i bet they are. abbie, thank you so much. i can't help but remember the dad saying not going to give up. thanks. now, we turn to prince william and duchess kate out with prince charles this morning and kate has been spilling new details about how the couple is getting ready for the royal baby. abc's lama hasan joins us with the latest from buckingham palace this morning. good morning, lama. >> reporter: good morning to you, lara. well, we've got the inside scoop for you this morning. we spoke with the royal reporter who was right there and she heard kate reveal all of those baby secrets, when the baby is

7:30 am
morning it appears he may have been right. >> i wanted it to stop. i wanted my life back. >> reporter: the star witness who helped send waseem taker to prison for life. >> if i would have known it would have led to this i would have clearly done things differently but i can't. i can't take it back. >> reporter: she was telling the court how she feared for her life. how he kept stalking her in the early '90s before stabbing her roommate as an act of revenge when she finally called police. flight attendant carmen smith was killed and her 5-year-old son was severely wounded. >> we find the defendant guilty. >> reporter: this morning she has stumped everyone filing court papers defending taker saying much of what she said wasn't true and that he never threatened to kill or physically harm me. >> some people have a conscience and perhaps that's what happened. >> reporter: she was powerful on the witness stand facing down taker acting ace his own attorney. >> you stalked me and harassed
7:31 am
me and i have to answer your questions. that's hard for me. >> reporter: when she sat down last fall with "20/20" she cried as she explained how daker stalked her for years. >> he would show up at the store, everywhere. >> reporter: now she's admitting she willingly spent time with him and was under the influence of painkillers, muscle relaxants and other substances when she made those allegations. she's also tearing apart the dna evidence that connected him to the murders saying that the blanket police found at the crime scene with his hairs on it was one she had given her roommate before the murder, one daker slept on when he spent nights over. daker said he's innocent all along saying he wasn't the masked man who attacked smith and her son. >> do you remember telling them back in 1995 that the killer's eyes were blue. >> no, i was in the hospital and had gotten stabbed repeatedly by you. >> reporter: this morning daker is in a prison and is saying i
7:32 am
told you. he's already demanded a new trial. lawyers tell us that blatz wrote daker in jail telling him she was going to come clean. in a statement overnight they say blatz has become unstable since trial. >> for more we bring in dan abrams. this is quite bizarre. >> i almost have never seen anything quite like this. she was a crucial witness in the case. she was the linchpin of the prosecution's case and yet i don't think this is going to make a difference. >> you don't think there will be another trial. >> no, here's why. because first of all legally, courts look skeptically on recanted testimony. number two, even when they're looking at it, the most important question is do they believe that it's genuine and i think it's very hard to believe this is genuine. when you actually read through what she is saying, it does appear at least to me to be more ranting than recanting. she accuses the judge of misconduct. she accuses the jurors of
7:33 am
misconduct. she accuses the prosecutor of misconduct and accuses herself of misconduct in essence saying that all of them made mistakes and if you actually look at what she's saying it does appear to be a bit unhinged. at one point these a saying, well, my daughter came to court with a friend of hers and her friend's fiance now ex-ex-fianc mother was friends with the juror and the juror said -- this is not the sort of stuff or recan. tation in a classic case where we say, aha, they got it wrong. >> in essence admitting to perjury. could she face charges. >> thee rhett likely but i think the prosecutors will view her as becoming unstable and as a result i think that they're going to just hope this goes away. >> we'll see what happens. >> thank you, dan. we'll turn to an incredible story of survival out of maine. a 64-year-old man however miraculously holding on for some
