3:00 am
policing. >> announcer: this "new day" with chris cuomo, alisyn camerota and mckalae michaela pereira. we do have news of a new boston investigation radicalized by isis. after charging them with a military-style knife. this man was under surveillance for years after social media threats against police. >> police arresting another man as part of the investigation. were they connected to terrorists? . let's begin our coverage with alexander field where she is live in boston. >> reporter: good morning, police have been talking to at least two people believed to be associates of the suspect. they are hoping he could be key in helping who he could have been plotting with.
3:01 am
law enforcement considered him a threat enough so they were following him 24 hours a day before that deadly shooting. today in everette massachusetts, a man is in custody. . police making the arrest last night. it all began around 7:00 in the morning when the fbi and boston police descended on area aiming to question the suspect. he was under 24-hour surveillance by the joint terrorism task force radicalized by isis and other extremist influences. the fbi says raheem made threats against police on social media. when officers approached him,
3:02 am
raheem lunged at them with this this knife, authorities say, before a federal agent and police officer fired hitting him in the torso and abdomen. >> the officers gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do. unfortunately, they had to take a life and that's never an easy decision for an officer to do. >> reporter: raheem's brother. at a mosque in california paints a different picture saying on social media that his younger brother was on his cell phone with his father waiting for the bus when he was confronted by police and shot in the back three times. he says his brother's last words were i can't breathe. the shooting is now under investigation and boston police say they have a a video documenting the entire event. >> we saw the video. it appears that the law enforcement officers were backing away before they
3:03 am
exercised deadly force. >> reporter: that video should be key to answer ing aing a lot of questions about what exactly went down outside of that cvs. it's not being released publicly at this time which is normal during the course of an investigation like this. boston police have invited a select group of muslim and black community leaders to police headquarters. they will be showing them the video privately. it's an effort to maintain accountability and transparency here. >> that's an interesting move and it will be interesting to see what is on that video. the white house saying a critical surveillance tool is back in place this morning. president obama wasting no time sign ing signing the usa freedom act into law. it revives most of what died on monday in that senate stalemate. the new law comes with new e restrictions. dana bash is live in washington with that part of the story, good morning, dana. >> you cut through the drama and politics this law contains the
3:04 am
first major changes since 9/11 especially on the surveillance programs. here's some of the changes. for the first time telecommunications companyies will store the data collected in the program. for the government to access that data a warrant will be require ed required. a court that oversea sees that which is now classified will be more transparent. the reforms in this bill at least the process, was really what the public is screaming for. bipartisan compromise. this is a product of negotiations between the white house, the bill failed. one last thing. mitch mcconnell miscalculated in
3:05 am
the determination of his junior colleague rand paul. because of that remember they went dark on sunday at midnight when they expired. because of technical and logistical reasons legally, we're told it could be three or four days to get those programs back up and running. >> good insight, dana as always. let's get some analysis on these big headlines this morning with phil mudd, former cia counterterrorism official. we hear of another arrest this morning. it seems to have something to do with threats made against officer safety. what do you make of it? >> we have been seeing a lot of these cases. e we saw that garland, texas, shooting a few weeks ago. they were not under surveillance otherwise they would not have made it to the
3:06 am
cartoon event. contrast that to what we have just seen in boston. this one is so high end, sort of tiered at the top. you have these guys under surveillance. this is not common in the counterterrorism world because it's so inefficient to put eyes on a subject for that long. a lot different than looking at what you're seeing on facebook. you have guys talking about the level of alarm. clearly something happened. >> those words, level of alarm. >> clearly something happened that led them to go up and talk to this fellow. something led them to say after all this investigation, with the level of surveillance we have on him, we have to say something to him. there's something in this case in my judgment that's going to come to light in the next few days that tells you why it's so serious. >> it's social media related. why approach him at a bus stop? >> i suspect because they felt they couldn't wait any long per.
3:07 am
something happened in the previous days. tlerp looking for a situation they could control to ensure other people weren't around in case it went ugly, but something triggered within 48 hours for them to say we can't sit on this one any longer. you have a a classic balance. let me keep collecting so i ensure i know what's going on. the balance is always regardless of the case, i can't sacrifice public safety to keep learning more about the case. they said public safety trumps. >> public reaction early on was, oh no law enforcement kills another man who didn't have a gun. the fbi has every interest in keeping someone like this alive to talk to them. >> especially because you're talking about potential connections with isis. when you're an intel guy, as i was, i joined the fbi in 2005. your first question is if you unsurprisingly show up as a suspect in an investigation, if you show up my first question
3:08 am
as an intel guy isn't who is chris cuomo. if i take this to a federal court, i want to take the spider web down. who provided the inspiration, who provide edd the money, because if i take you down too fast and leave the rest of the spider web out, they will resuscitate the case. >> let me make something productive out of that shot you took. as a segue into another headline because we have to wait for more information on the case the surveillance bill that was just passed. the push for changing it was too much of an invasion of an individual's privacy. what do you make of the changes put in? enough tools and was this a right change? >> what's happening here is both professional and saying what does it mean for my profession of intelligence. it's going to make it less efficient. if you own all the data you don't require a court order.
3:09 am
you want to tell me that's less efficient than what we have? >> were you listening to my phone calls? were you doing things you weren't supposed to do? >> of course not. you have an inspector general process, the media, congressional oversight, laws that control what you do with the metadata. my professional judgment is i thought we were good with the data pa there's a broader question that i think was inevitable in this case in 2015. all the programs we had, the interrogation of guys that was a reaction not just by security agencies not just by the congress congress, by the american people saying we don't want this event again. it's almost inevitable that the pendulum swings back. >> the polls out say people want surveillance programs in place. >> i'm not sure people are
3:10 am
differentiating the way congress is. congress is saying we would be -- surveillance is okay. we'll be more comfortable if the telephone companies owned it. >> bottom line you're saying with what we saw go down in boston the process of figuring out who this guy is will be less efficient because they don't have all the data? >> it's got to be less efficient. it's inevitable. when i was first briefed in after 9/11 even i back then in that environment said whoa this dog is going to come home to bite us some day. i think at some point you have had the congress say, hey, we need a national debate about the programs. democratic societies don't like secret agencies. that national debate happened this week in the congress. >> you had a dog that came back to bite you. now we'll see if they have enough tools to go forward. >> i like it. there's sobering new poll
3:11 am
numbers for president obama about how he's handling his job. senior white house correspondent jim acosta joins us now with the new numbers. what are they saying jim? >> reporter: president obama's approval numbers have taken a hit. after the president's poll numbers were approaching that 50% range, public satisfaction with the job he's doing is sliding once again. take a look at the number there. how the president is handling his job right now, 45% approve. 52% disapprove. the numbers match almost how americans feel about the most important issue facing the country, the economy. the big drag on the president's approval numbers you're seeing one of them there. isis and government surveillance two-thirds of americans don't approve of the way he's handled those issues. the isis number just as bad there. 32% disapprove. handling government surveillance 67% disapprove. only 29% of americans approve of
3:12 am
the job he's doing according to to our poll. the most surprising number of the morning deals with how the. public views president obama's predecessor, george bush. the opinion is favorable, 52%. that is his highest approval number since 2005 and perhaps offers reassurance to jeb that perhaps the bush name is on the mend. that one thing he'd been worried about so much his bumper sticker says "jeb", not bush. for his father as well. the numbers are pretty terrific right now. 64% right now. >> that's good to hear. you want the legacy to be strong. always a plus and minus with a name. another big development for you this morning in the murder of a wealthy washington, d.c. family and their nanny. they have new evidence dna that connects the suspect to the
3:13 am
deceased. let's get to joe johns for the latest. we have new questions about his role and the basis for the dna. >> only a little bit more here. the latest clue made public in the case tends to point towards the only suspect authorities have in custody even though police say the suspect in the mansion murders within walking distance had to have had help to pull it off. two law enforcement officials told cnn that traces of blood found on a shoe wint was wearing matched the blood. there were four victims. a washington local station reported police were back at the house on tuesday studying a safe in the garage and taking pictures of it.
3:14 am
authorities had said $40,000 requested while he and his family were being held captive in the house was left in the garage before it was taken away by the killer. their two teenage daughters were away at boarding school. the family funeral was earlier this week in washington. >> such a terrible story, thank you for the update. a desperate search stretching into a second day for survivors of the cruiseship tragedy in china. rescuers finding another survivor bringing the total to 15. with 450 people aboard, hopes fading that more will be found alive. david mckenzie is live in china with the latest on the search. david? >> reporter: allison, the frantic search continues and now cutting open the hull of the cruiseship trying to get at anyone who might have survived
3:15 am
in air pockets in this horrible tragedy. i'm standing where families are expected in the coming hours to gather to see if they can get any sign that their loved ones might have survived. only 15 people pulled from that vessel and hundreds still missing. i spoke to one man who is on the bus traveling here. both his mother and father were on that ship and vacationing here. he says he hopes he can get any news on them and they are frustrated the family members, because they don't have the information. the search effort is continuing in that they are bringing large vessels to raise that boat out of the river and try to get at it in any way they can to see if there are any survivors and also just to start the recovery process. >> david, thank you very much. we'll check back with you later in the e show. a woman who was mauled to death by a lion at a wildlife park has been identified. she is 22-year-old katherine sha
3:16 am
pel from new york. . she was attacked through an open window as she was taking pictures pictures. her tour operator was badly injured trying to free her. >> that's so terrible. secretary of state john kerry is in good condition recovering from surgery to repair a fractured fe femur. his hospital stay will be short and his recovery should not interfere with official duties. he should be able to engage in. the iran nuclear talks. the international police organization is issuing red notices for four former fifa officials. the fifa president is stepping down just four days after he was reelected to a fifth term. it was odd to many that the head of fifa had avoided the net and now the fbi is said to be zeroing in on blater in a
3:17 am
corruption case. >> why did he go through the election? >> how did he win the election? >> four days later, everything has turned. violent crime is spiking in big cities across the country. why? we'll debate it. >> this michigan town has to settle a case. they're going to doll out a million dollars because of a police beating but how they plan on footing the bill has people angry. we have the mayor on. we test, you decide.

3:21 am
there has been obviously an uptick in homicides and shootings. it's something e we take very seriously and something we're addressing right now. >> that was the new york city. mayor addressing the large rise in gun violence. he says it's a result of gang activity. what do other experts thinking with let's bring in retired detective harry halk and commentator and host mark lamont hill. good morning to both of you. these are about the gun violence in new york city. it's happening in big cities all around the country. murders this year are up 19.5%. shooting victims they are seeing more of up 9.3%. shooting incident us are up
3:22 am
8.9%. >> politicians. mr. de blasio and his new york city koun iscouncil are handcuffing the police. they are handcuffing the stop and frisk out there. their rhetoric has created an environment for police officers where they might be afraid to take action. so that's why we have seen this up tick. police officers don't believe they are being backed by the politicians and the new narrative is it's only bad guys killing bad guys. i was a cop when i had 2,000 homicides this year and it was bad guys shooting bad guys. when the bad guys shoot each other like what happened in queens this weekend, innocent people are killed. >> mark you say it's more complicate complicated. >> you can't say you listen to police and then discount the police commissioner who is telling the reasons. if you listen to the police they are also saying this isn't
3:23 am
what's happening five years ago. they are saying this is an actual issue of gang violence and particular pockets. but i disagree with the idea it's politicians handcuffing them. stop and frisk was deemed unconstitutional. so unless you're suggesting police should ignore -- >> police officers are still doing stop and frisk u but they are not doing the amount of stop and frisk they have done before. >> changes because they decided to do something different judges made the decision. >> i don't understand your point. if it's gang violence, guns are up, violence is up. it's still a problem. you can't say it's just gang activity. >> two things i'm not saying it's not important because it's gangs. i'm saying it's not representative of the problem he's talking about. there are moments in major
3:24 am
cities where gang violence up ticks and it's not -- >> not like this. these numbers are astronomical on what's going on now. >> they are not astronomical. it's 30 more than. last year. >> new york city was the gold standard for how to fight crime because for 20 years crime went down in this number one city and now it's ticking up again. >> they are taking away from what works. it works for i don't know how many years. the police commissioner came in. here. when i first became a cop in 1982 we weren't allowed to make drug arrests. drug dealers dealt drugs right in front of us. that was a democratic administration at the time. everything changed. you're a cop, make an arrest. >> here's my only point. i don't want to suggest that stop and frisk wouldn't drop
3:25 am
some of the numbers. i can see that it would. there's no disagreement about that. but so would lock up everybody. >> you're being hyperbolic. >> i'm saying if we were to take this to the extreme example, we could find ways to. stop crime. the things we have to balance is is fighting crime and civil liberties. >> but there's no balance here right now. we have people scared to death in their own neighborhoods. the front page of "the new york post" the other day people screaming we want stop and frisk back in our neighborhoods. these are black people good people who go to work having their children being shot when gangsters are shooting at each other. >> do you accept that stop and frisk, maybe there's a way to modify it. when it was curtailed, the gun violence went up. it does seem there's a connection. do you think there's a connection? >> i believe stop and frisk to be unconstitutional. >> is there a way to make it
3:26 am
better? >> there's not though. >> there's a way to police better. i think what we're seeing now is a transition period. we have gotten rid of something that may have been effective but not healthy for the community. we need to find that model. that doesn't mean we go back to something that fundamentally was terrorizing people. >> i want to go to the findings in missouri. this also is true of new york. basically this is a bomb shell. police do pull over black motorists and pedestrians more often than whites for random searches, yet more contraband is found on white motorists and white pedestrians. >> you're twice as likely to be arrested if you're white throughout statistics. i see it right here. >> but you're not. >> that's not true. >> look at the statistics right
3:27 am
here. >> but they are pulling over people who are black and finding the crime with whites. >> basically what i'm looking at here is why were these people pulled over. you're a guy that likes data. there isn't enough data here. the report indicates it does not indicate racial bias. >> it can't only be blacks that have broken tail lights. >> we don't know. is it broken tail lights or is it somebody committed a crime and fit the description. >> we need more black guys. one thing, no study can ever conclusively say it's about racial bias. there are predictors of it. the fact that the study says that doesn't advance the bar one way or the other. there are many studies that all show the same thing. you can trust the social scientist they depended on and
3:28 am
look at the numbers and. bear it out. the point is there are considerable bodies of data that show that black people are more likely to get pulled over and it's for pretext stops. we're all bad drivers. but nevertheless it's black people who are always getting pulled over. >> there's a lot to discuss on all of this. thank you for being here. until the end, i can't think of a more useful conversation on this issue. you really present both sides so well and you asked all the right questions. it was such an important conversation. you can follow me. drive whenever you want. adrian peterson is back on the field for the minnesota vikings following a suspension for abuseing his son. the reaction from him that you'll want to hear, ahead. many wrinkle creams come with high hopes, but hope... doesn't work on wrinkles. clinically proven

. what do you think? >> i thought the spanking issue, the poll came out that 70% of americans think it's an okay way to discipline a child. . so there are different minds about it. for me it was about the league. how did they handle this? i'm suspicious of their moral authority in different situations. >> are you happy? >> i didn't like how the process went at all. how he is as a parent, that remains to be seen and it's important to his child and mother of the child. >> there was such a cultural conversation about the right punishment for children. you can find us both on twitter. >> that 70% poll shocked me. a new poll out this morning, not good news for president obama. his approval rating is down. national pessimism is up. do the results spell trouble for democrats going forward?

a majority of you do not like the direction the country is taking. take a look at our new poll that tells you what you already know. 52% believe things in this country are going badly. this coincides with president obama's job approval rating also going south. a majority of americans, 52%, disapprove of performance. what does it mean? is it just a number? does it carry forward into the next election? chief of "the daily beast" john avalon knows. john you go first. looking inside these numbers, the economy, another number to put up here. what matters most to voters?
3:42 am
the economy is top on the poll list. there you go. that's what they care about. if they care most about the economy, they don't think the direction is good they are blaming the president, string it together. >> the narrative gets more complicated because they think the economy has improved and overall obama has been a good steward of the economy. what seems to have driven his numbers down specifically is isis. there's an 8-point drop about how he's dealt with isis and terrorism overall. it does speak to the spiraling chaos in the middle east and a lack of a clear or effective administration action. so it makes sense that would drive it, even though terrorism is not top tier poll issue. >> kevin do you agree? >> there's been an economic recovery. people feel technically there is one there, but they don't think the economy is actually living
3:43 am
up to its full potential. they want to see more. but john is right a lot of the president's inability to really give the people a clear sense of what his plan is with dealing with isis and seeing more of news that the problem is getting better rather than worse, i think that has affected their psyche when it comes to judging his performance. >> do you think we don't have a clear strategy is opportunistic? it's really that it's just got not going well and the political spin is to blame obama. if you look at the other operations there, people that know what the plan was any better than they do now. >> i don't think you can underestimate the negative impact that the president's own words had probably over a year ago when he said we don't have a tragedy. that sent a chilling message they haven't recovered from. in the interim when we see some of the challenges -- >> he also said that's -- >> e he said that's not what he
3:44 am
meant, but that sound byte played for two weeks straight before the president even came out and tried to correct it. america and our national security forces had faced some challenges there. >> kevin, i don't think the issue is even the perception or spin or what was said or not. the issue is ramadi major city cities that were falling to isis. when we said they were on the run, the disconnect is the problem. >> that's exactly right. >> here's a fascinateing finding from the poll. president obama was elected in part to get us out of the war that people believe that george bush did in iraq. favorability ratings, barack obama, 49%. george bush 52%. he gets a higher favorability rating. >> every president looks better in the rear view mirror. that's just the reality.
3:45 am
there's been enough time. if you compared this point in his term with obama, obama is lapping the guy. people look better in the rear view mirror of history. and jeb is reminding that george bush was a great politician. >> absence makes the heart grow fonder. >> as time goes on, you have a more favorable imeducation prp. do you see a growing disconnect in what matters to real people and what is in politics? they say they care about the economy. but the disconnect between wall street and main street spending is going down. consumer confidence is going down. that's what real people think but the political optic is seeing a robust economy. is there a disconnect? >> yes, i do. there seems to be this sense that -- i have done a lot of focus groups where you see a sense that the issues that
3:46 am
washington is focused on are not necessarily the top priorities of the american public. jobs the economy, income stagnation those are things the american people want to see focused on. when you see us get into side debates or at least debates that folks outside of washington see as side debates, that creates this disconnect and feeling there's a a lack of accountability in washington. >> let's look through the front windshield. there are new people coming in this week or this month so here's who will be announcing their plans for a presidential bid. tomorrow rick perry. and june 24th bobby jindal. we're still waiting to hear from jeb bush chris christie scott walker john kasich.
3:47 am
>> he says -- >> speechless. >> he says he's going to make an announcement so weird. but it's significant that walker and bush are consistently in that top tier candidates haven't officially gotten in. kasich could be a player. some big players still not officially in the ring yet. >> we have to leave it there. >> here are the numbers. >> thank you both. great to see you guys. a town in michigan forced to pay more than a million dollars to settle a police beating case but they don't have the money. now they are passing that cost on to taxpayers. the mayor of the detroit suburb is going to join us live to ex explain.

of michigan as a result of some of the deficits we have ran in the city which is the result of the economic tsunami that hit the state of michigan. inkster is not alone, but that is oneover the strategies available to us when we have unforeseen judgments on the city. this was photo foreseen and we have no other recourse. >> people are used to the idea that their tax dollars fund a lot of government, but here you say you're in distress. our understanding is there is a surplus that you have there on the municipal level, but you're not allowed to use the surplus. why not change that rule and spare the taxpayers, especially for something like this. this just feels wrong, what you're doing. >> it feels wrong and i don't particularly like it to be honest with you. i would take that argument to the state of michigan because that is where the real issue
3:54 am
lies in terms of who can really redirect and come up with another strategy to address these kind of issues. >> but they elected you to represent them. if you know this feels wrong why don't you go fight the good fight? >> i am fighting the good fight, and i am making a real conscious and precise argument with the state and all those that would listen that we need an urban agenda that address urban problems in our communities. this is just part in parcel of an overall problem that we're having. budgetary issues it's not new to communities like inkster. unfortunately, the state do not engage in strategies that bring substance to communities and inject some sort of stimulus to help. communities try to navigate through these economic
3:55 am
hardships. >> this is a big hit. if you can argue to the state, it's not like the number sounds huge and you break it down and it's 17 cents. this is $178.67. that's on a home with a market value of $55,400. this is a big price tag for people. don't you believe it's incumbent to make changes. and if you agree, how are you going to do it it? >> i'm making an argument. i think we should have a different way to address these sort of issues. when you look at the fact that the state of michigan has withdrawn from revenue sharing to cities over the last 15 years over half of revenue sharing has been taken away. when you look at our tax base dwindling, there's a lot of issues that go into this. the housing industry has collapsed and really recovery has not hit the state of michigan in a real way for communities. these are the kind of issues we have to face.
3:56 am
>> but you have other issues you can deal with. you had insurance, but basically got caught in a deductible problem. it doesn't kick in until settlements get over $2 million. that's something you could address. then you have for whatever your economic distress is that doesn't mean that cops have to beat the crap out of guys for bad reasons. you can address what the cops are doing as well. are you working on those levels? >> absolutely. there's some systemic problems in police departments across the country. all those things need to be reevaluated. i think recently the president task force on 21st century policing goes right to the heart of it. when the police department goes from guardian to enforcer in terms of how we apply the law
3:57 am
and how we institute the procedures and practices of law enforcement, i think there's been a shift. i think we need to get back to guardian more so than enforcer. as a result of a lot of different things have caused police departments to be more enforcers and that's unfortunate for communities like inkster. >> especially talking about that market value, creeping into the communities who are worried about being victimized by excessive force now paying the price tag for when it happens. that's going to be an issue politically, you can be assured of that. thank you very much for talking to us about this. we look forward to seeing what fixes you make there to avoid this happening again. this is a story for you to watch. there's a lot of news this morning. let's get right to it. >> this may have been a homegrown terrorist. >> we are trying to determine if
3:58 am
they move from rhetoric and when they became operational. the search for survivors on a cruise ship. >> there was a tornado that hit the vessel. >> the majority of the passengers are between 50 and 80 years old. >> new evidence dna to connect darron wint to the deceased. >> allegedly found blood on the shoes he was wearing. >> we do expect the tsa to do the job we're paying them for and we should find out why they are not. >> if in a test the tsa is failing 95% of the time, they are failing the american people. >> this is "new day" with chris khouw cuomo. >> welcome back to "new day." authorities say he came charging at police with a military-style knife, but that's not the only threat posed by usaama rahim. he was shot dead by cops in boston who may believe he was radicalized.
3:59 am
he was under surveillance as part of a terror investigation. >> proof of this bigger investigation comes in the form of another arrest this morning just outside boston. now the question is how was this suspect and the one before tied to extremists and are there others on the radar? alexander field begins our coverage this hour live in boston. what do we know? >> reporter: good morning, chris, this investigation only expanding. usaama rahim was being watched, but he was being followed 24 hours a day and his behavior had changed. so officers moved in for what they would have been a discussion, which then turned deadly. now police are talking to two people they believe are his associates. today in everette massachusetts, a man is in custody, police making the arrest last night in connection with the fatal shooting of a terror suspect in boston by police tuesday morning. it all began around 7:00 in the morning when the fbi and boston
4:00 am
police descended on this cvs aiming to question the suspect, 26-year-old usaama rahim. >> black male coming out now with a knife. >> reporter: rahim had been under 24-hour surveillance by the joint terrorism task force, radicalized by isis and other extremist influences. the fbi says rahim made threats against police on social media. when officers approached him, rahim lunged at them with this knife, authorities say, before a federal agent and boston police officer fired hitting him in the torso and abdomen. >> the officers gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately, he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do and unfortunately they had to take a life and that's never an easy decision for any officer to do.
4:01 am
>> reporter: rahim's brother at a mosque in california paints a different picture saying on social media that his younger brother was on his cell phone with their father waiting for the bus when he was confronted by police and shot in the back three times. he says his brother's last words were "i can't breathe." the shooting is now under investigation and police say they have a video documenting the entire event. >> we saw the video. it appears that the law enforcement officers were backing away before they exercised deadly force. >> reporter: there is a lot of interest in seeing what exactly those surveillance cameras captured. the video is not being made public at this point, which is normal during an investigation of this scale and this scope. but the boston police commissioner has actually reached out to black and muslim community leaders. he has invited them to watch the video privately. the police department and
4:02 am
district attorney's office saying that this is an effort to maintain transparency and accountability. >> that is such an interesting move thank you so much for that report. let's bring in juliette cayenne. she joins us live from boston. nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> this suspect was under 24-hour surveillance. we know that's a huge amount of resources being poured into one person. what does that tell you? >> so the facts that we know right now, just the factings rather than the motivation is 24-7 surveillance is rare for a joint terrorism task force. there's hundreds of investigations going on. to put those resources is rare so you knew they had more. the second fact that we know is both the fbi and boston police department approached him during the day in an open area. that is rare.
4:03 am
in most instances when you have time you like to approach someone either at their office or their home in a confined space where they are not feeling hostile. so to approach them in a parking lot probably means they were in a hurry, that something was happening. the third fact that i want to relate is it's also very rare for the fbi and the boston police department or any local police department to do an approach together. they are sharing information all the time, but to do essentially a a patrol together is rare. so that makes me think there was something very serious and specific, maybe not eminent, but serious enough to make this all unfold e yesterday. >> let's talk about this suspect's brother. he was a well known figure in boston. he was popular, he was a popular part of boston's muslim
4:04 am
community. he was seen as a moderate. he has spoken out against islamist terrorism. what more do we know about him? >> so that is true. the muslim community here is very helpful to law enforcement. there's actually a number of sort of procedures and policies in place to sort of continue conversation amongst religious groups and with law enforcement. this is actually a very good state in that regard and a good city in that it regard. but look people don't know often what their children do what their brothers are doing. so i don't take his sort of statements about the facts of what unfolded -- not as fact. he sort of telling a story he needs to tell. i think that the e showing of the video this morning is very important to sort of let everyone have the same facts about what happened and then we can determine was he actually
4:05 am
radicalized, was this an issue of isis. >> is isn't that so interesting and unusual that the police are taking that step of calling in the leaders from the muslim community and showing this surveillance video. that tells us that somehow they believe that will quell questions and whatever sort of unrest there might be about a police shooting of someone who they say was armed, but who his brother says doesn't believe that. >> that's exactly rooigt. the boston police commissioner is very forward thinking about this. he's engaged a number of immigrant and diverse communities. i think this is a brilliant move because what you don't want is people fighting over the facts. there are two issues here. one is was this a legitimate kill so to speak. the other was who was the brother and was he radicalized? if we can all agree on the facts, then there can be an investigation to determine who actually he was and whether this
4:06 am
was a terrorism incident whether this was a e legitimate investigation. i think it's a great idea and hopefully will curb some of the unease that people are feeling today. >> there's been a suggestion he was radicalized by isis. we don't know the facts yet. police haven't released the details, but let's talk about the big news on capitol hill this week that's connected to this. that's the nsa and the new freedom act. how do you as a law enforcement-minded person see what the changes that this act will bring? >> i'm actually pretty pleased with the changes. i think that the bulk surveillance aspects had to have greater oversight. just given what unfolded and the fact that there was no oversight over really a powerful tool meant that the white house had to compromise and that the senate had to compromise. i have been happy with what the house came up with. the other provisions are noncontroversial so they just needed to expand including the
4:07 am
most obvious one which is if you have an investigation you want to follow the terrorists. you don't care what phone number they are using. a lot of these are important continuations of tools that are necessary. so not a great way to run national security but i guess it's the only way we know how in a democracy. so people will advance forward now. >> juliette thank you so much. >> thank you. president obama's performance ratings are taking a big downward turn. just three months ago, a growing number of americans felt the country was moving in the right direction. now a new cnn poll suggests people are growing more and more pessimist. let's go to jim acosta to break down the numbers. >> they can't be happy here at the white house about these numbers. the president obama's approval numbers have taken a hit. after the poll numbers were
4:08 am
approaching that coveted 50% range earlier this year, public satisfaction is sliding once again. take a look at this number here. how is the president handling his job? 52% disapprove. the numbers match almost how americans feel about the most important issue, the economy. but the big trag on the president president's approval numbers are on isis and government surveillance. two-thirds of americans don't approve of the way he's handling those issues. take a look at this how the president is handling isis. 32% approve. and it's even worse on how the president is handling government surveillance surveillance. 29% approve, 67% disapprove. those are abysmal numbers. the most surprising number of the morning deals with how the public views president obama's predecessor, president bush. here it is opinion of george
4:09 am
bush, 52% favorable. that's his highest approval rating since 2005 and perhaps can offer reassurance to his brother jeb to the bush name is on the mend. getting back to the approval numbers of the president, he had been getting close to 50%. now he's at 45%. that 5% is just the toughest number in politics for this president right now. >>. we'll analyze that coming up on the show. day two of a desperate search for survivors of the cruise ship that captized tuesday in china. rescuers finding another survivor but 450 people unaccounted for david mckenzie is live in china for us this morning, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, they are doing this frantic search here trying to get into the hull of the ship. breaking it open with welders to try to reach anyone in air
4:10 am
pockets. as the hours stretch and days stretch by now, the hope is lessening. i'm here at a spot where family members will be streaming in in the coming hours. we have spoken to them. they are on buss from cities a across china. one man said his mother and father were on this cruise. he hopes against hope that maybe they are still alive. they are bringing three vessels into the region huge vessels, to lift up the bow of that boat to reach inside and perhaps start frankly the salvage operation at this point. some of the family members are angry saying they need more support. but right now china is reeling from the tragedy several hundred still missing. >> david, thank you very much. please keep us up to date on all the numbers as they go forward. the uk's towers theme park will stay closed today because
4:11 am
investigators are looking into the terrifying roller coaster collision that left four people seriously injured. an unnamed source saying one of the victims lost a leg. a total of 16 riders stranded, 20 feet off the ground for hours. why? their car hit an empty car. the smiler has a history of problems and broke down earlier in the day. the investigation continues. wait until you see this vid e owe. a man skiing plummets into a crevice. he captured the ordeal on his camera on his helmet. as he screamed for help for more than a half an hour. but crews did hear his calls and came to his rescue pulling him out of the 20-foot hole. >> mouth hangs open. heard him there or was he one of those back country guys who had the communications? >> i don't have that detail for you but i will research it and
4:12 am
get back to you. >> do you do that kind of stuff? >> off trail skiing? no i don't. i'm best in the lodge. >> falling in holes, though? >> i fall down but i'm really -- if you saw me in the lodge, i would look great in the gear. bar stool skiing is my specialty. >> i respect that. new forensic evidence may be the strongest link connecting this man to the so-called d.c. mansion murders. what is that evidence? why is it impressive? what does it mean for the case? all answers, ahead. ke sense if you turned on something in one room and it turned on everywhere else. but that's exactly how traditional cooling and heating systems work. so you pay more than you should. but mitsubishi electric systems give you a better way... with no waste and lower energy bills. control temperatures precisely in one or every room ... ...with no new ductwork. so everyone can enjoy ultimate personal comfort. mitsubishi electric cooling and heating.

what can only be called a major break in the murders of a washington, d.c. family and their housekeeper. investigators say they have new blood evidence linking darron wint to one of the victims. let's bring in law enforcement analyst, former fbi assistant director tom fuentes. on the face of it, how strong
4:17 am
will this evidence be if it stands up? >> i think, chris, on the face of it it will be very strong. i think the reason is that a good defense attorney in court can maybe argue that the evidence of saliva on a pizza crust by a potential defendant might convince a jury that -- how certain can we be of that and it's not that good of a science, but blood analysis has gone on for decades and will be more acceptable and probably something that a jury will have an easier time to look at as greater degree of evidence. >> at this point, does your gut tell you there's any chance this suspect was not at least present? >> i think from the evidence that we have heard about it it sure indicates that he was present. particularly the blood, there would be really no other way to get blood on his shoes unless he was in the house where it was
4:18 am
from the victims. >> tell us what types of things are going on that we don't know about. we do know authorities believe wint was involved but may not have been alone. how do you try ang late who else was there? >> they would be looking at the forensic evidence at the home and try to look for dna samples, whether it be hair skin particles, other material that doesn't match up to any of the victims or to wint. look for other people that may have been in that home and then try to identify anybody else who has been at that home maybe a guest or maybe the son had sleep sleepovers and friends came to stay, other people that had a legitimate reason to be at the home. the other house keep thaer didn't come to work that day, individuals like that. that will continue. the problem is that the clothing and blood on shoes and that type of thing from other suspects could be long gone. wint was taken into custody fairly quickly after the event, but the others who may have been involved at this point could
4:19 am
have been smart enough to have disposed of all of the clothing or shoes if they were present at the crime scene. >> but the best thing, obviously, authorities have going for them is they have wint. if they want to find other guys their best tactic is to squeeze him and see who else he brings in order to save himself if there was anybody else. one of the things that's shocking to people if this was just for money, how did it get to be so brutal? >> that's true chris. the indication of that is that whoever did this enjoyed the violence this this is more psychopathic behavior as oppose ed to just $40 o,000 doesn't go very far. es peshlgly if it's being divided among other coconspirators. the indications and the psychologists that i have talked to believe that the degree of savagery in this case indicates that there was more to it on the part of the person taking their lives and torturing the young
4:20 am
boy more than just money. >> more than just money, maybe money was the fuel but in terms of what they did in that house, they were motivated by something darker as well. it does kind of remind unfortunately, of the case in connecticut where the family was lost except for the father. he had to live with that. what happens going forward here in terms of other potential charges? >> i think, again, it's a focus on who else was involved in this. the person that brought the money to the house is another key aspect of this. i think in time we should be able to find out how many people were involved in the greater conspiracy involving the money, the delivery of the money and who occurred in that home what the coordination of it was. i think at some point we'll hear a lot more about that. this is just the type of investigation that's very difficult, has to be conducted in a very meticulous orderly
4:21 am
manner. >> the more you learn, the more you realize it didn't have to happen. tom, thank you very much. president obama's favorability down this morning. according to a brand new cnn poll john king reveals those numbers coming up on inside politics. when account lead craig wilson books at he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? great proposal! let's talk more over golf! great.

police in boston shot and killed the suspect for allegedly charging at them with a knife. the suspect was radicalized byist skpis part of a broader terror investigation. usaama rahim has been under surveillance for years and was making social media threats against police. another man also taken into custody just outside boston. >> the chances of finding more survivors on a cruise ship that capsized in china are growing slim. 429 people on board the ship remain unaccounted for. most of them are elderly victims at this point. the ship capsized late monday during a severe storm. the captain claimed they were hit by a tornado. initially they were both taken
4:26 am
into police custody. federal authorities investigating bomb threats against flights originating or landing in the u.s. on tuesday. at least four commercial flights involving different airlines were targeted. all of the planes landed safely at their destinations. officials later said none of the threats were credible. president obama will deliver the eulogy for the vice president's son. a funeral mass is schedule edd for saturday. the public can pay respects in a pair of services thursday and friday. the former attorney general of delaware as you know, died last saturday. he was only 46 years old when a battle with brain cancer got the best of him. let's turn to inside politics on "new day" with john king. you have poll numbers, people getting in the race, donald trump saying he has a big announcement. >> we won't start with the circus this morning. chris, good morning to you. let's share the report of the"the
4:27 am
daily beast". the country is in a bit of a funk. let's look at how are things going in the country. the recovery is supposedly taking steam, but people seem concerned about isis. 47% say things in the country are going well. in march it was 53%. there's been a downturn in recent months. i think a lot of that is isis and might be presidential campaign beginning in a political debate. how is the president handling his job? 45% approve. if you go back to february it's about consistent. what do we make of this? it's not horrible, but it's not good. >> people just aren't feeling the recover roy. if it's not coming down to you and mattering with how your kids are doing, you're not going to think the president is doing a great job.
4:28 am
until people feel this recovery. you're going to see these just okay poll numbers. >> there are other things going on. people turned sour about the fight against isis and the president is also a pinata on a daily basis because you have 15 republicans running for president. >> there's been a big drop of the president's handling of the isis. that coincides with a couple things. a lot of americans are not clear on what the strategy is and they are hearing some -- i don't want to call it happy talk but upbeat we're making progress. they are seeing headlines saying ramadi has fallen to the islamic state. so there's a disconnect between the government's position and the headlines. >> it will be interesting to watch. he's also a big issue in the campaign. i want to turn to two former presidents. they always look better in the
4:29 am
rear view mirror. if you leave office, your poll numbers go up. george w. bush for the first time in a decade, i want to repeat that he's above water. 52% of americans have a favorable opinion of george w. bush. again, i think the big headline is more removed from office, the more people tend to like you. he's an issue in this campaign because his brother is running. i'm not sure it helps or hurts jeb. >> you saw some polls earlier this week that showed jeb bush's name is still a problem. one of the interesting things is when you look at how george bush was doing at this time in his presidency it was around 32%, so if you look at that, obama is ahead of the game. >> bill clinton was the same number as well. >> you're seeing two legacy candidates. jeb bush and hillary clinton, it's going to affect how people decide how to cast their
4:30 am
ballots. i hear a lot of voters who say i don't want another clinton or another bush. it's going to be interesting to see how they navigate that problem. >> a lot of headlines about the clinton foundation. will that be baggage that hurts hillary clinton? at the moment democrats would have to feel good about that. 64% of americans have a favorable rating. memories of the clinton economy are helping hold two-thirds of americans viewing him favorably. that's pretty good. >> i agree. i think bill clinton, these stories are not great. it's going to be interesting to see if his numbers fall like hers have since she left secretary of state. >> bill clinton job approval and personal approval it's going to be interesting to see how that shakes out. the job approval has never moved that much. >> i want to move on to the two floridians running for president. .
4:31 am
jeb bush and marco rubio, there was a big event hosted by rick scott yesterday. marco rubio couldn't make it because of senate business. jeb bush was marco rubio's mentor. a little drama in the presidential campaign. here's a little bit of a taste. >> our outdated leaders continue to cling to outdated ideas. even though our economy is now global, our outdated leaders continue to tax and regulate our businesses as if we were still just a national economy. >> it's hard to imagine my good friend marco would be critical of his good friend jeb. >> is it hard to imagine? we know he means hillary clinton when he says outdated. does he also mean jeb bush? >> i think a little bit. jeb bush has an age before beauty message radar. >> that's a good way to put it.
4:32 am
we'll watch this as it plays out. we treat hillary clinton as the democratic front runner. many people in washington including the white house treat her as an incumbent. they treat her as an incumbent vice president. now there's a bit of a controversy about this. a big former fundraiser for barack obama. he was put as the finance chair. they are supposed to be neutral. hillary clinton is running, but but he's hosting a a fundraiser for her and helping with a big fundraiser in san antonio. >> if you're one of the rival campaigns, you have to think it's unfair. it does speak to that inevitability among democrats in terms of that they think hillary clinton is the nominee and this is walking the walk after talking the talk. >> the complaint saying wait a minute you guys control the convention convention. you control the debate schedule. you guys are in charge of a lot of the mechanics of the primary schedule. you can't be in her camp.
4:33 am
>> right, and i think that's a valid argument. but they have made a big deal about welcome inging them into the field. they have a very tough road to climb. this is another head wind for them. >> former republican senator from rhode island and moderate republican in the senate then an independent governor. he wants the democratic nomination for president. he doesn't show up at all in the polls. is this somebody hillary clinton needs to view as a threat? >> i haven't seen any evidence of that yet, but it's early. >> it depends if we get the same dynamic where every week there was a romney versus not romney. at some point there's a bernie sanders or martin o'malley and the media turns to them and says, okay, make your case. she has to view this not as a
4:34 am
threat, but has to keep in mind. >> we'll see if he can rise to the level of democratic debates. we have a couple more republicans this week more to come. and mr. trump is signaling he's going to give us a decision. have you seen this movie before and then before? jimmy fallon thinks so. >> according to an e e-mail from his staff, donald trump is set to make his announcement on whether or not he's run for president on june 16th. i mean, seriously, at this point donald trump announcing he's running for president is like soccer's world cup. it happens every four years and no one in america cares. >> pretty good there. here's my test. to run for president, tough file one of these things called a financial disclosure form. i think not. >> you think this is the boy who cried trump? >> yes, very well put.
4:35 am
>> thanks for sending us off on that fun note. great to see you. growing questions about airport security this morning after an undercover investigation found that tsa failed to catch banned dangerous items at airports 95% of the time. the former head of the tsa will be here to tell us what he thinks is going on. out of 42 vehicles based on 6 different criteria, why did a panel of 11 automotive experts name the volkswagen golf motor trend's 2015 car of the year? we'll give you four good reasons. the volkswagen golf. starting at $19,295, there's an award-winning golf for everyone.

4:39 am
the acting head of the tsa is out following a report that showed a massive failure by the agency to detect fake explosives at airports 95% of the time. let's discuss this with the former director john pistol. >> good morning. >> these numbers are staggering. under cover investigators able to sneak fake weapons through security 95% of the time. it's almost laughable. what's the point of even having the tsa? >> well there's a lot of questions that are being raised and properly so. the context for this is that
4:40 am
both the inspector general, the government accountability office in tsa's own team are continually trying to get things through check points in order to assess the effectively of the security. these results are completely unacceptable unacceptable. the whole point is how can tsa learn from their mistakes and really looking at three different categories. one, did the technology work as it should have? two, were the standard operating procedures followed and appropriate given the current threats? and three, how do the officers deal with the threats that were identified if they were identified? >> it sounds like they failed on all three counts. there was a test conducted by the department of homeland security. they tried to smuggle in 70 weapons. they got 67 of them through. by the way, these were not
4:41 am
professionals. these were civilian members of the department of homeland security. these weren't cia experts. these were regular people and able to get it through 95% of the time. it sounds like a failure on every front. >> it has been it is and that's the question that is being addressed by jay johnson, secretary of homeland security, and tsa to find out where the failures occurred. these tests go on all the time. it's usually a kbi in addition of those three. it's usually not just one single thing. so in this instance i know they will be looking at the technology. have they been recalibrated were they operating properly. and then the standard operating procedures if they failed here, if that's systemic they will go back and revise those. clearly, there's retraining that has to be done. >> secretary johnson removed the
4:42 am
had head of the tsa, but the problems sound bigger than one man. having spent your years at the tsa, what do you think the biggest problem is? >> it's a combination of those three. in terms of the testing that was done it is done somewhat. not to minimize the terrible results, but it is done in a vacuum that if these were actual terrorists there would be some intelligence presumably. i have high confidence there would be about their activities. whether they are e-mailing, skyping, communicating and perhaps looking for material and know how online. somebody in the u.s. intelligence or law enforcement community would pick that up. so these tests are really somewhat mechanical if you will, as opposed to these specific check points doesn't look at the other layers of security. >> that did happen in 9/11. you know the general public finds this ridiculous. the general public the passengers feel like why are we
4:43 am
taking off our shoes, our belts, our watches when the test is sneaking through 95% of weapons and it's working. >> and again, that's a legitimate question. i know congressional oversight is very much interested in this and looking at ways -- the whole purpose of these tests is how to improve. when you have disastrous results, you have to go back and it's back to bay sicks of what failed. >> can you say this morning that the tsa is actually keeping us safer? >> sure because of all the things that they do find every day, every week the thousands of guns every year. you have to remember they are screening over 650 million people in a year. so it's something that every day there are hundreds if not thousands of prohibited items. whether it's stun guns or grenades or actual handguns or large knives and things.
4:44 am
they are finding all those things. one of the key aspects of the layers of security is the intelligence on the front end. absent that it make s it a difficult proposition. you see that dynamic of trying to balance good security with facilitating free movement of people and goods so you don't have a two-hour line to try to guarantee something that is not guaranteed recognizing these results are just unacceptable. >> sure, it sounds like you're passing the buck to the intelligence community rather than saying that maybe there are some screeners that need to be fired or need to be better trained. >> well no clearly it's a partnership with the intelligence community. it's something that everybody has to work together. clearly where these failures have occurred secretary johnson is looking carefully. for example, in the failures if it was operator error, is there anything system ikic there? was it new officers just on the job six months or less or was it
4:45 am
older officers? any patterns there they can look at in terms of focus training as opposed to saying well, everybody in the country missed it and that's what they have to look at. when they get the full report they will do just that. >> okay john pistol thank you for joining us with your suggestions of what needs to change at the tsa. let's hope they do all of those. >> thank you. >> what's your take on this? tweet us or post your comments on our facebook page. i'd love to read those. >> i don't see you flushed with confidence about changes at the tsa. >> i mean when they get weapons through 95% of the time that's a red flag that something systemic needs to change. >> the reaction is another red flag. pistol is not in control anymore, but there does seedm to be an acceptance of failure on the government side that takes away your confidence that they have the urgency or the desire to do better. >> absolutely, let's hope this
4:46 am
is a wakeup call. that's the most we can hope for. >> 95%, that's bad any way you look at it. what's supposed to be good is the economy. markets are at record highs. so why do you give the economy low marks and whom do you blame for it? must-see findings for you in a new cnn poll, ahead. this allergy season, will you be a sound sleeper, or a mouth breather. well, put on a breathe right strip and instantly open your nose up to 38% more than allergy medicines alone. so you can breathe and sleep. shut your mouth and sleep right. breathe right.

4:51 am
say it's underway or here compared to 43% a year ago and the president is not getting the credit for it. gas prices low and job market improving and people buying cars at the fastest pace since 2005 and people are saving money, and that hurts the president and gives huge opportunities for discussion on the campaign trail. wages inequality over the next year and a half. the economy is feeling better and they don't feel great how the president is handling the economy. >> you always find the teachable moment. thanks for that. did you happen to catch the flick "san andreas."

4:53 am
that quake. could you lose both cities san francisco and l.a.? >> i think it's highly highly, highly unlikely. >> could the hoover dam collapse? >> no we all laughed at that scene and said there's water behind the mover dam. >> that's a little dry humor about the drought. seismologist dr. lucy jones, posed with the rock and then tweeted inaccrauracyiesinaccuracies and omg, a chasm at the fault could open up there could be no friction and with no friction there could be no earthquake. one thing scientists love movie repeats the duck cover and hold on mantra experts recommend.
4:54 am
seismologists speak as if there is no if it's all when there is a big one. >> oh, yes. >> and what is a little earthquake quackery. cnn, jeanne moos safe in new york. >> how do you not put the clip of me from the movie in when you are doing a package about it, jeanne moos. >> that was my whole takeaway from that piece. >> yeah you were waiting for your cameo d. if you were in a movie like that you wouldn't want to at least see it? i have not seen it. >> get to the theater. another terror plot in boston allegedly taken down by authorities, and that's what -- we'll tell you what we are hearing and what they say they just broke up, next.

of law abiding citizens none of that is going on. >> the terrorists are not going away and america is still their target. >> a potentially development in the murder case. >> blood spatter evidence on clothing that's pretty hard to argue. >> the numbers have taken a hit. >> they are not the top priorities of the american public. good morning. welcome to your "new day." it's wednesday, june 3rd 8:00 in the east. boston police say they stopped a terror plot after taking out a suspect, police say he charged them with a knife. >> he had been under surveillance for years, and a second man is due in court today
5:00 am
in connection with the investigation investigation. alexandra field is in boston with the latest. >> reporter: of course the question of everybody's mind why did police move in when they moved in? this is somebody they were watching 24 hours a day, and recently they had noted changed in his behavior, and they approached him with what should have been a conversation and that confrontation turned deadly. they turn to two people that appear to be his associates as one man heads to court. police making the arrest last night in connection with the fatal shooting of a terror suspect in boston by police on tuesday morning. it all began around 7:00 in the morning when fbi and boston police descended on this cvs aiming to question the
5:01 am
he had been under 24 hour surveillance by the joint terrorism task force, radicalized by isis and other extremist influences. the fbi said he made threats against police on social media. when officers approached him, he lunged at them with this knife before a federal agent and police officer fired hitting him in the torso and abdomen. >> they gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately he came at the officers and they do what they were trained to do and unfortunately they had to take a life and that's never an easy decision for any officer to do. >> his brother paints a different picture, saying on social media saying his younger
5:02 am
brother was on his cell phone with their father waiting for the bus when he was confronted by police and shot in the back three times. he says his brother's last words were i can't breathe. police say they have a video documenting the entire event. >> we saw the video and it appears the law enforcement officers were backing away before they exercised deadly force. >> so it seems that surveillance video should resolve any discrepancy as to what went down at the cps, and police reached out to black and islamic leaders, and that video is not being made public. >> it will be interesting to hear their impressions after they say that video. thank you so much for all of
5:03 am
that. president obama said the usa freedom act will help keep the country safe while also protecting american's privacy. it will do away with one cornerstone with the war on terror. what do we know about this dana? >> if you cut through the drama and the politics at its core the new law contains the first major changes to the patriot act since 9/11. let's take a look at the changes. for the first time telecommunication companies and not the government will store data collected in the dragnet program, and if the government wants access they will need a warrant and the court that is top secret now will be more transparent. everybody is asking when can we see bipartisan ship and things getting done in washington guess what? this is it. this was a bipartisan
5:04 am
compromise. the product of something from the white house and the most conservative members of the house, and an unusual alliance and it takes place in the senate but the guy that usually cuts those deals, mitch mcconnell the republican leader he strongly objected and he thinks this compromise that is now the law changes the programs that it makes them so weak it hurts the national security, and we have been paying a lot of attention to this because of mcconnell's miscalculation in that his junior colleague from kentucky rand paul he was determined to do whatever it took to derail these programs and because that the programs went dark on sunday night at midnight and they expired and so when are they going to reboot it could be
5:05 am
three or four days because of technical or logistical reasons. >> my push back is were they all running scared. our guest is in line with senator paul on this issue and, congressman, thank you for joining us. why do i put out this supposition about what this was about, and let's put up what the freedom act does so they get what the new will do. shifts met data storage to the phone companies. government must petition for metadata access and they have to get a warrant in order to get the data they have already, and
5:06 am
transparency of the fisc court there, and we are not sure how it's going to work yet. you say you don't like it it doesn't go far enough in terms of protecting people in the surveillance level. why? >> this is a step in the right direction, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. you are right, this is section 215 and only deals with the metadata collected on all americans, and the court doesn't have a true advocate for civil liberties, and what we are relying on is the gatekeeper and it's the same court that issued a warrant that covered every american in this country. back in the revolution they called those general warrants and that's why we have a fourth amendment. it says you have to have specific warrants. >> you know a lot of legal types do not believe this is a general warrant and there are key distinctions
5:07 am
distinctions and they are making sure what is asked for doesn't attend the constitution. >> yeah they are judged that a lot of them were prosecutors and there is no advocate there. in the first version of the freedom act we put an advocate in there and it got watered down and the warrant they gave verizon, it was open. >> and what they did here -- i know you have your constitution and go look it up in the fourth amendment, it's unreasonable searches and seizures. >> naming the specific persons and things to be searched or seized and specific it really stretched the word specific to say that everybody who is a verizon customer is specific. >> well it was about -- i think it goes to the scare tactic that wound up pushing us in the direction we are right now, they were not listening to
5:08 am
conversations or getting personal information, this is about storage of phone numbers, and once they got a suspect they had a thumbnail way to get the universe of the people they were looking at. >> there is a misunderstanding you are right, about this program, this just collects phone data. you can get a lot of personal information about somebody and you can determine their religion based on who they called. there's another program that has not been reformed yet and is it for authorization in two years, and it's section 702 and it deals with the con at the present time of your e-mails and internet chats and hopefully we will be able to get a chance to reform that as well. >> this is just telephone and doesn't capture other types of digital media. let's talk about the poll in
5:09 am
terms of where people are where they want to keep them safe. 61% said congress should renew the program, and even along party lines people want this there. do you believe your friend and colleague, senator rand paul, push this privacy thing a little too much in his case for political gain? >> no, not at all, and a poll said 54% americans said they don't think there is enough checks on the government when they collect data on us. >> is it because of what people like you told them? >> well, you know, we have revelations and we know more about this program than we did before edward snowden came forward with this, and those are facts and they have led people to those conclusions. >> they have been greatly criticized as you know and they
5:10 am
wound up leaking certain information that may have been dangerous, and you say it's a general warrant when a lot of legal experts would argue it's not a general warrant and it doesn't open up to having people's secrets revealed and that has an affect on the feelings. >> we would like to see more whistle-blower protection so edward snowden wouldn't have to do this. you can't dispute the facts. these are facts and documents that came from the nsa. >> the irony there is that snowden and the defensive peoples' liberty and the journalist that put it out dumped a lot of information about the people in the open market, and the intel experts, mike rogers give him a phone call he will say they were not
5:11 am
listening to phone calls. >> mike rogers let us down and failed us. all 435 congressmen cannot know the secrets so we can trust them to know the secrets, and the second highest court in the land just determined last month that the nsa was breaking the law and really you know the previous chairman and collect intel committee should have brought that to the attention of the rest of congress. >> i like the way you word it by the way, because senator rand paul makes a suggestion that the surveillance program was found unconstitutional and therefore that's the proof it must be changed. you just made the right point, which is nobody said it was unconstitutional they said it exceeded the legislative mandate put forth in section 215. it's not that it changes the
5:12 am
constitution. >> it means it broke the law, that's what the court of appeals said. >> but it's not unconstitutional? >> you are right, that tortured language exceeded the legislation, and that's a euphemism for they broke the law. when james clapper lied to congress and said well i said the least untruthful thing i could come up with. >> and why stretch it and say unconstitutional because it feeds the idea that the government is doing something to us and senator -- >> it's a violation. senator paul said the program is unconstitutional and i believe it was unconstitutional as well and if you go back and listen to him, he has not said the court said it was unconstitutional, and he read the opinion and he knows they said it was illegal and not unconstitutional and that doesn't change the fact we do believe it was unconsequences
5:13 am
unconstitutional. >> this is a conversation that will continue. thank you for joining us on new day. >> thank you. president obama's job ratings felt a slide. new cnn poll numbers show americans growing more pest mest eubg. they can't be happy in that building behind you, jim. >> reporter: a little soggy, the poll numbers. he was reaching the 50% range, public satisfaction with the job he is doing is sliding again. take a look at the numbers how the president is handling his job, 45% approve and 52% approve, and those numbers match almost how the president is handling the economy right now, and the big drag on the numbers,
5:14 am
they are very disaproofing of his job on isis and government surveillance, and two-thirds of americans don't approve of the way he is handling the issues, and 32% approve on his handling of isis, and 67% disapprove or 29% approve, and the opinion of george w. bush 52% favorable and 43% unfavorable, and that's better than the president of the united states right now, and people tend to view former presidents a little better than when they are in the white house, and is that george w. bush's highest approve numbers since 2005, and perhaps

ing to resign. the fbi is zeroing on him in the corruption case. let's go live to zurich. what comes next? >> reporter: that is the big question chris, that blatter announced yesterday that he was going to step down surprising the world with the hastily called press conference. he gave us 90 minutes notice. i can tell you he is back in his office and sitting behind his desk here in zurich. the question is what more is there to come? we know the fbi are investigating sepp blatter, no
5:16 am
charges or allegations made as of yet, and loretta lynch, the lady in charge of the fbi investigation, she is actually been speaking today, and she said official notifications in terms of the case will go through the official channels. she did send fifa a message that made people smile wishing them the best as they strive to get back to regulating the sport of football and that is the challenge, how to move forward with so many investigations go into what was happening in days gone by and we understand that a little bit later today at the court in brooklyn the fbi will present the transcript of the guilty plea from the fifa former executive, chuck blazer that started this incredible chain of events unfolding. >> amanda thank you for all of that background. this is an incredible story.

the president's approval ratings -- >> how do you know? >> i know because we have a new cnn poll to show 52% of americans disapprove of his job performance. >> why do they think this? >> let's break it down. our political commentators the
5:23 am
long time adviser to president clinton in the '90s, and ana navarro, an adviser of gop candidates. why are we seeing the flip in terms of america's impression of president obama and his handling of his job? >> president busch said this president'ing is hard. troubling news overseas ramadi has fallen to isis and problems at home with congress trying to renew sections of the patriot act and all of this stuff. this is the metric to watch. a lot of it and even in our poll a lot of the head to head does hillary beat bush head to head that doesn't matter and everybody is looking at this how is the president's job
5:24 am
approval and that's a metric to watch over time. at this stage of his presidency, president bush was in his 30s, and ronald reagan's vice president did succeed him. >> when you know he speeds up, you are about to get a zinger in the kidney. yeah bush was in the 30s, 38%, and clinton was ahead, 50% at this time. there is a history of not being great. let's get to the reasons why. you have two. a disconnect between wall street and main street what people feel in running their household company is not the same as what people are finding on wall street, and that there is a disconnect. and then isis that's where he takes a big hit, the president on the strategy of dealing with
5:25 am
problems abroad and that is a big hit. what is your take? >> i think many couples get a seven-year itch and many presidents get a seven-year itch and we are seeing obama having to survive the seven-year itch now. i think some of the progressives are turned off by his support of the authority, and his progressives that came back to him after the 2014 election are turned off by things like his support of the nsa and extension of the patriot act, and the handling of isis. we have seen setbacks for the u.s. and its fight against isis and terror in the last few weeks and that's taking a toll on the american people. >> i want to stick with you for a second because of your connection to jeb bush. he has not announced yet, as we
5:26 am
all know and he got a little testy, frankly, yesterday, when he was asked by a reporter about his record. listen to this moment. >> i think my record of accomplishment as governor of florida is one that i can take to republican voters and if i am successful there to a larger audience -- >> but it has been a while. >> it has been a while since the governor has cut taxes every year totaling $19 billion and it's been a while for many states to go to triple rating and it's been a while -- >> he is itching to get in and make his case? >> i think his announcement is going to be coming soon. he has been saying that consistently. i was there yesterday when that interview took place. alisyn that is not a testy jeb
5:27 am
bush and i have seen him and i know the testy jeb bush and that's the jeb bush touting his record and reminding people of what he did. what he brings to the table as a candidate his experience in florida. he had a very good reception yesterday and owned the room in florida, and that is because it was a crowd that lived in florida when he was governor and remembers all the things he did and it has been a little hard for jeb to learn how to brag about himself, and it's not something the bushes have done very well and he says he is always constantly afraid of his mother's shadow telling him, jeb, don't brag and he's got to do it and -- >> yeah he is in the wrong business if he wants to be humble. >> exactly. >> he's in the wrong business. >> tv and politics is not for humble people. >> and they are different,
5:28 am
worlds apart, and he needs to get in the race that will make things easier too. if you look at what is going on with problems abroad and the president, can you make the case that it's his fault crossing the red line calling them jv and saying we don't have a strategy? these are things he said context rightly, wrongly, but he got himself into it didn't he? >> isis exist because we the united states under president george w. iraq and it's many saddam's generals. >> and what about that piece allowing it to fall? >> we kept thousands of troops there for decade and you pulled out -- >> you would pull out troops of iraq? >> absolutely.
5:29 am
i do think the president gets blamed for anything that goes wrong, and that's the way our system works. but if the debate is let's reconquer and reinvade and occupy iraq, and repeat the biggest foreign policy disaster of of the last 50 years, that's the debate the interventionists will lose. >> good to see you. >> thank you. a problem here to discuss. violent crime. the numbers tell the truth. surging in major cities including the one we are sitting in right now. are illegal guns triggering the spike, is that the reason for it? what do you think? we tested that. it, but you can still move it around. now that i have a tempur-flex, i can finally get a good night's sleep. when i flop down on the bed, and it's just like, 'ah, this is perfect." wherever you put your body it just supports you. like little support elfs are just holding you. i can sleep now!

5:43 am
whipping the triple crown last year? >> the difference is other horses there are different, horses are like us human beings and we are all different and the same with the horses they are different and they have a different personality and like to run different, and also all different colors too. the american pharoah, he has a very short tail. >> that makes him more aerodynamic? >> and some horses come into the belmont that were not in the other earlier races, and are you worried about that? >> you worry about that because they are fresh and they train just for that race a mile and a half and american pharoah, and now the preakness, it's not
5:44 am
enough time but now they up to mile and a half. >> how much do you have to weigh to be a jockey? >> it's 112. it's all about the weight not how tall or the size but the weight. >> doesn't matter how taller? >> no. >> i think i have a chance. >> he is a piece of steel -- >> are you saying he has more muscle is that what you are suggesting? >> no i have seen you in the gym. you have to be careful. >> my workout routine is pretty hard. >> what do you do? >> i work out twice a day, and i lift weights in the morning and then run in the afternoon up the hill and the other thing is like the eating thing, you know you cannot eat pretty much

there has been obviously an uptick in homicides and shootings. it's something we take very, very serious and something we are addressing right now. >> how? what is causing it? what do you do about it? that was new york city mayor, bill de blasio talking about the spike in crime his city has
5:50 am
witnessed in the last two years, and the number of illegal weapons seized dramatically dropped. is there a correlation? jim, thank you for joining us. what is the answer? >> thank you, chris. i wish i could give you a really simple answer. this is a complicated question and we all seek very simple answers to complicated questions like this but the answer is we really don't know. there is obviously a correlation between the availability of firearms in our society and the number of violent crimes, and i can't tell you and i don't know that anybody can with any definitive sense tell you that a reduction in the number of weapons that are seized by any particular police department directly correlates especially in the short term to an uptick in crime. >> the people that call themselves second amendment
5:51 am
advocates, they will be okay with this because it's illegal guns being talked about this and that's the point, keep the bad guys from having guns. how can it not contribute? >> in the long run, it will contribute. the thing we focus on and what we kaulgcall is a risk factor and it's the availability of firearms to criminals and it's the availability that causes problems. if they can't get their hands on guns it's hard to shoot anybody with them. we have lots of guns obviously, in our society and we will have for a long time to come and the question is given that as our reality how do we rationally and responsibly keep those guns out of the hands of criminals. >> it gets misleading when we talk about homicide rates, milwaukee, and they say most of those are done with guns and most homicides are done with the guns and it's the easiest way to
5:52 am
kill somebody and if it's not that people police are not laying down on the jobs and what happened when you had such a positive trend in the last few years? >> it could be anything illegal drugs to gang warfare and among gang members, retribution is a big deal and that can drive this and the note of disrespect and how we deal with disrespect creates problems for especially inner city young people. again, as i said earlier, i wish i could give you a clear and definitive answer but science is not that clear. common sense tells us things and science tells us things but we have not spent enough resources
5:53 am
on these issues. >> most of the crime indicators are down it's just homicides up and that's why the gun rights advocates jumped in on both sides and you seized less the numbers went down and we will show them to you now, and this is why they are saying you took so many less 3,648 in 2010, and a 20% decrease over five years. stop and risk has been modified and it was seen as unconstitutional in the previous administration, and they changed that and do you think that comes into play with homicides? >> it does. we are asking again, very complicated questions that we need to spend a lot more time studying. if there is one thing i would say to politicians, they need to get the gumption and have political will getting the resources to understand this problem better, and we have
5:54 am
believes about what drives crime but we don't have knowledge about what drives that. we have the scientific tools that kreuplcriminalist can uses like whether stop and frisk is effective. crime control strategies either work or don't, they are effective or ineffective and that's what we need to do is spend our time to see if they work and do we create more problems in communities than what we are trying to solve? >> obviously you get into numbers like disparity index where you saw in missouri where 75% was more likely to be stopped if you are black than white and that has to be taken into consideration also. >> thank you. a topic we know you love and that is working out, how
5:55 am
