tv Way Too Early MSNBC October 8, 2013 5:30am-6:00am EDT
after compromise but you hear from the president and h men and women. >> no negotiation even though every one of those offers is a compromise from the republicans initial offer having mitt romney be president. the humor, yeah, it's still funny but getting a little less funny. another day of a government shutdown. more talk and less progress and now it's a major concern outside the u.s. maybe not the biggest priority in north korea where they're upset about being left out of chair lift technology. i'll explain in a few minutes. and the dodgers go deep against the braves and they're now deep into the postseason but not the case for pittsburgh and boston, though. this is "way too early." good morning, everybody. tuesday, october 8th. if the north korea story isn't enough we have a strip club that
won't show new york giant games because it's too depressing and on olympic flame goes out. we have both of those for you. we want to start and get right to the latest on the twin raids against al qaeda. u.s. marines on alert after the capture of suspected terrorist abu annas al-libi. it's part of a task force that can respond quickly to security incidents in the region. they were formed after the attack last year on the u.s. conciliate in benghazi. he's the 10th suspect in custody for the 1998 bombings of embassies in kenya and tanzania. they'll question him aboard the uss san antonio about his role in the bombings and other plots. one widow says she is relieved the u.s. is still pursuing the suspects. >> it's soothing to know that our government is still after
them and methodically and deliberately going after them. >> nbc news learned exclusive details about why u.s. special forces abandoned another raid in somalia. it was focused on the man behind the deadly massacre at the mall in kenya. team six made a landing in darkness and al shabaab was outside smoking a cigarette and noticed them and they found themselves under heavy fire inside. the key target was surrounded by fighters and by children as more reinforcements descended on the house from a nearby village to the s.e.a.l.s opted to with draw. >> as day number 8 of the shutdown begins it's a game of truth or dare. president obama daring john boehner to let the house reopen the government. >> the truth is there's enough
republican and democratic votes in the house of representatives to end the shutdown immediately with no strings attached. the house should hold that vote today. if republicans and speaker boehner are saying there's not enough votes then they should prove it. >> speaker boehner has said a bill that does not defund or delay the affordable care act would not have a chance of passing the house. but some moderate republican congressmen, they want to end this and they're siding with the president on let a vote happen. meanwhile, the debt limit and the possibility of default grows closer to reality by the day. a vote for a clean debt limit increase, one that raises the borrowing limit without cutting spending on government programs could come in the senate later this week. republican senators said they would back it but the democrats are calling for accompanying
cuts in deficit spending. speaker boehner renewed his call to the president to sit down and negotiate to avoid disaster. >> ts morning the senior white house official said that the president would rather default than to sit down and negotiate. really? the president -- i'm going to say this again -- a senior white house staffer this morning said that the president would rather default on our debt than to sit down and negotiate. really, mr. president, it's time to have that conversation before our economy is put further at risk. >> it is, of course, nine days and counting as the u.s. debt clock continues to tick down to the october 17th deadline. financial alarms are being sounded all across the world now. the latest warning comes from chinese officials demanding that the u.s. get their fiscal house in order. well, china holds $1.3 trillion in american debt. they are all warned the u.s. rating could be cut if it hits
the deadline and is unable to pay it's bills. >> we have week two of obama care. a lot of technical glitches. last night the affordable care act's primary website, health care.gov taken off line for maintenance and software updates. one of several white house officials working to down play the issue with the website. >> i'm going to do a challenge. i'm going to try and download every movie ever made and you are going to try and sign up for obama care and we'll see which happens first. >> okay. >> how many have signed up thus far? >> fully enrolled? >> yeah. >> i can't tell you because i don't know. we're taking applications on the web, on the phone, we'll be giving monthly reports but we've had not only lot of web hits, hundreds of thousands of accounts created. >> hundreds of thousands people have signed up.
of accounts created which means they're going to go shopping. >> can you run it okay? >> we will. >> the va has huge problems. i'm concerned. >> we're not running the insurance programs -- >> you're just running the enrollment. >> that's right. >> if the number was huge, i bet we would know about it. the chief technology officer said the website was built to handle around 50,000 visitors simultaneously but reportedly reached 250,000 during peak traffic. many consider north korea the world's worst human rights abuser but north korea is pointing a finger at another country this morning. the country is accusing switzerland of a serious human right abuse for refusing to sell ski lifts. north korea has been working around the clock to build it's first ever ski resort. the only problem is they don't have the technology to make ski
lifts and can't obtain them. they offered a swisz company 8 million dollars to make the lifts but they said, not going to do it. this is another one that's true. police released a video after a storekeeper chasing away a robber with a machete. the man at the deli counter whipped the machete out and chased the suspect out of the store and through the parking lot. local officials said police have been receiving tips about the suspect since the video was released but as of yet, no arrests have been made. let's go to business, the government shutdown dragging stocks down again. the dow hits a one month low. all three major indices in regular territory. good morning. >> good morning to you, well, the markets are fretting over the shutdown as you might expect
but there's something new to put into the equation at the moment. that's earning season. we're waiting on our brands tonight that will come after market close here and the big question is are these companies going to deliver. that's what we're waiting and watching on. the expectations have been driven down. i think we're now expecting something around the 5.5%. back april first it was 10 to 10.2%. so you can see how the analysts have lowered their expectations. it's always a bit of a trick because companies have a low hurdle to step over. >> right. >> but the market will be waiting to see whether we can deliver on the growth side. just to move you on here, it's another story i think is fascinating. fannie mae, freddie mac, the bailout, what problems it did to the u.s., well, the europeans, they have looked at the story and said, you know what, we
might like some of that. okay. we don't want the bubble like conditions in the real estate market but we do need strategies to try and get support for home buyers. so now the dutch have engaged in setting up institutions like fannie and freddie and here in the u.k. we have a government backed mortgage scheme. help to buy here in the u.k. looks like some of the things that were done with fannie and freddie. >> good luck with that. >> yeah. >> real quick, the $100 bill. there's a new one out ands got a lot of tech features so people can't duplicate it. >> absolutely. apparently if you move this, i mean, i haven't touched one but as i understand it, you have a 3-d imagine of the liberty bell that moves as you move the note. you've also got a number of other tech features on it. i'm just looking at my notes.
benjamin franklin on there of course. but these 3-d security ribbons meant to make it harder for the counterfeiters. that's what it's all about here. stopping people faking $100 bills. >> a little color makes it look less boring. all right, jeff, have a good day. appreciate the insight. all right to twitter, an inventor creates a watch that says it can predict when you're going to die. how does it work? well, you fill out a medical questionnaire, don't lie about the tobacco use and it calculates a death score entered into the watch and then counts down your remaining time on earth to the second. would you even want to know that? why or why not? #waytoomorbid. the best answers for you later in the show. still ahead, the tampa bay rays hoping the home field will help them stay alive against the red
