what are the park officials saying. have you been able to talk with them? >> no. actually we have put in several calls and stop by their office and we have not heard back from them and we went to their office immediately after the press conference to ask what sort of access the media will have because if there are no sticks or large objects that would prevent us from going and we have first amendment right as well. we went there and there was a sign on the door that said closed until 8:24 a.m. tomorrow. still no word but on behalf of the media they're working with the national park service to come up with some kind of strategy and let us know about it to keep -- keep us informed. >> tara moriarty tonight. thanks, terry. >> they say they are not racist

preach violence and hatred and incite violence. that is their purpose. we know that is a fact by simply watching how they've acted another series. bear ed lee says he points to other rallies. is that true? >> absolutely not. they don't give examples and they are not specific what it is they're talking about and this is the issue about politics. they spew out lies but they don't back it up. >> gibson said his group's rallies have been hijacked by far right groups in the past much like in our list -- much like anarchists do. he said people from across the political spectrum would be speaking at the rally. >> we stand up for free speech and love and freedom. we are done with the politics and i'm done telling people who to vote for. we have too many

supporters and he said it's all about free speech. >> in the past he has invited up opposing speakers to talk about issues as well. did that and it -- at a previous rally in the hope is these two sides will not get close enough and in the past he has allowed those with opposing views to speak at his rally. heather holmes. heather, thank you. robert e lee and stole wall jackson -- and stonewall jackson were covered up two days after the counsel voted to cover the monuments and leaders say the act was in honor of heather hire, the 32 -year-old woman killed during a white naturalist really in charlottesville later this month. >> uc berkeley professor resigned from his post today. the professor says he's stepping down in response to what he

payment retail commissions and bonuses and their contributions to education. since the california lottery began in 1985 k threw 12, and other qualified institutions receive just over $30 billion in the budgets of all the recipients have been 2.2 trillion but dollars. in other words the lottery is funded less than 2% of all of their expenses and helpful but far from a cure. >> to maximize the money you receive they collected over 30 years and you get $17.5 million a year after paying taxes and nothing in state taxes and your total payout $525 million and if you choose a lump sum payment the cash value is $442 million and you pay $110

derricks that are removable and they are drilling for oil and they will have to do a lot of shifting of gear and that's why a sidebar as we go forward friday, saturday and sunday it will rain beat the band in houston, chris christie, brownsville they could see a foot or a foot and a half of rain and it's not like they haven't already seen a lot of rain they had a lot of flooding issues here in the spring and in the winter and that will keep going right through the weekend and we will talk more about that most likely on thursday and friday and that system develops into a damaging hurricane and hitting populated areas. as we look at the fog there it is and the fog is in the monterey bay area -- monterey bay area and the fog is around just like today in today's highs are generally upper 80s and low 90s.
87 in concord and running cooler than we were yesterday. a degree cooler in santa rosa and similar today. very similar to what we had today -- so as we press forward tomorrow thursday a lot like your monday, tuesday and wednesday and it's warmer in the inland valleys in the real heat up comes -- the real heat comes on saturday and sunday when temperatures could easily get into the mid-90s most of us in the inland valleys and it would be a fire concerns and you can see the fog not too drizzly and you can see up by sausalito the sun breaks in the son comes in over here by tiburon in those areas. not on the golden gate bridge. the fog is there. especially out toward lafayette in those areas these are the forecast highs
which are similar to what we had today. that's tomorrow. but then saturday and sunday we see temperatures go up and it gets hot in the fall gets minimized and no that is your day on thursday. >> last night the president fired up his base with that speech in phoenix the former director of national intelligence said he found the president's speech downright scary and disproving and we talked to our political expert. >> google taking taps toward suing the company after he was let go in the high-profile lawyer he just hired. >> a rally for colin kaepernick in new york city and what civil right activists are demanding from nfl commissioner roger and coming up at 6:00.

from those that serve in government. he had a much more tempered environment compared to last night. >> u.s. profession james taylor is here -- professor james taylor is his. james clapper's -- james clapper has worked with every president since john f. kennedy and this is what he said right after the speech. >> i don't know when i listen to something like this from a president that i found more disturbing. having an understanding of the levers of power available and he's talking about nuclear weapons i found this downright scary and disturbing. >> yeah he actually mentions the close and hillary clinton warned this frenetic personality that donald trump has and the -- the idea in which he spoke
and explained the process is streamlined that in less than 10 -- in less than 5 minutes that's where you hope general kelly and others -- around him are strong and reliable. >> do you think that's crossing the line? >> the american psychological association unleashed and came to an agreement that this is now fair game to revisit this question going back to watergate to avoid going into personalities and psychological profiles. this is new territory for the professional classes that look at these areas. >> the president spent a lot of time criticizing the media saying the deceive the american public and they are not fair. be honest. do you think he has a point? >> i think the media is obsessed with donald trump. if he was saying all the right things the media would still be
obsessed with them because he is a phenomenon and i think he is obsessed with the media as well and there is a freudian dynamic here because he was greeted by the media and at the local new york level and the national level and over $3 billion of ads run in the campaign he was largely created by the media and for him to hate the media and if i was a psychologist i would say there is something that is something deeply freudian going on. >> last night he said he blames the social and political upheaval on the media. what do you think about that? >> that issues here in this country are much more deseeded -- deep-seated and 16 million people wanted him to get things done. and at this point he can't point to any clear affirmative legislative accomplishments.
the standard is by 100 days set by fdr and donald trump says he's the most effective in history and he cannot point to something like the new deal for the spare deal or the great society agenda is trying to carry out and not even the affordable care act and this is what donald trump has got to get to moving beyond the one third of his electric that he is appealing to. for years i heard barack obama could only be the president of only black america turkey have to be the president of all of america and the embedded -- this individual is making an appeal around race and seems to be warning off the other two thirds and that to me is phenomenal. said something significant and he's not afraid to shut down government to get
the money to pay for the border wall. >> this man had threatened and used a government shutdown against barack obama twice and they said they would make him a one term president and i'm sure they wish he wasn't a president now in this new york times report if it's true about the tension between mitch mcconnell and donald trump and mitch mcconnell is safe for another four years despite low ratings and he doesn't have to worry about anything. donald trump has no power over mitch mcconnell. he's attacking senators in arizona. donald trump doesn't understand fdr, lbj, treatment those presidents who were legislatively successful, you have two get involved and work them lbj got up and congressman faces and donald trump is tweeting and that's not the way
you get things done the way the other presidents have got things done. >> we have much more coming up. james, thank you. mysterious death and a woman's body dumped partially covered with a tarp. plus. >> somebody saw something and somebody knows something. >> today police and the families of two murder victims hope -- hope their plea for help help track down a killer.
