7:00 am
profits? have you rebalanced your portfolio? are you wondering whether it's time to get in, in the first place? i'll be back later today at 1:00 pm eastern with ali velshi on "your money." cnn saturday morning continues right now with the top stories. cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "cnn saturday morning." as the drum beat of war gets louder in north korea, news that the country has loaded two missiles and is warning for nationals to get out of the capital while there's still time. it's a multimillion dollar business with more than $2,500 employees. no silicon valley startup, a white supremacist gang and some say the ideology is secondary to its financial interests. a woman and her secret. oh, the things she'll never tell. >> the breakout star from last
7:01 am
ye year's season "mad men." his character's horrific past and why he is being called the next don draper. >> good morning, everyone. i'm miguel marquez. it's 10:00 on the east, 7:00 out west. all eyes are on north korea this morning and its young, untested leader who has been threatening the u.s. and south korea. now we're hearing two missiles are on mobile launchers on north korea's east coast and if they're fired, japan could be within range. elise labott in washington, how serious is the obama administration taking these threats? >> they're taking the threats seriously, miguel. you can see that the u.s. is putting its missile defense system, moving that to the island of guam where these
7:02 am
missiles feasibly could hit. they've seen these threats from north korea before. they're hoping to dial back the rhetoric. even if there is some kind of missile launch or missile test, they're hoping that this latest escalation of rhetoric and tensions could die down. secretary of state john kerry headed to asia later in the week. and hoping they can find a diplomatic way forward. you're seeing even as these threats are going on, the u.s. is not meeting that rhetoric bit for bit and is trying to calm tensions a little bit saying let's not get this any hotter. >> he goes through middle east and asia. can he actually defuse tensions with his trip? >> first he is headed to the middle east. this is really going to become one of his signature issues. he's going to try to make some progress in the peace talks between palestinians and israel but then dive into the hard work of north korea.
7:03 am
south korea, china and japan, all about trying to move past this latest escalation and how can there be a diplomatic way forward? my understanding from sources is that he will be talking to these countries about what can we offer north korea to stop this cycle of threats, missile launches, missile tests and get it to start talking about denuclearization? he will also be talking to the chinese, who have a lot of influence and say, listen, you have to get tougher on north korea and try to get them to walk it back. >> is there a sense he can do that? can north korea sort of walk it back themselves or are they in sort of too far at this point? >> well, analysts and sources say that they think that north korea, kim jong un, has accomplished what he wanted to. a lot of this is for domestic politics, shore up his support at home. you've seen these pllt parades, mass demonstrations in favor of kim jong un. they think this untested leader
7:04 am
trying to get some street cred back home has kind of done that. they are expecting that the north koreans could take some sort of action, whether it's a missile launch, nuclear test. they're hoping they won't do some sort of cross action with south korea that then could escalate. they're hoping and seeing in the region that even as the threats seem so intense right now that it could be cooling down just a bit, miguel. >> elise labott in washington, d.c., thank you very much. new this morning, anti-ap t anti-apartheid nelson mandela has had a history of lung problems dating back to his time in prison and has been released from the hospital. two texas prosecutors, officials in kaufman county are cracking down on threats and taking every potential threat seriously. just thursday, someone called in
7:05 am
a bomb threat during the memorial service for district attorney mike mclelland and his wife. whoever made that threat hasn't been found. but police arrested this man, robert miller, and charged him with making a terrific threat online against a deputy district attorney. another man, nick morale, also faces charges, accused of threatening a county official but police say these men are not tied to the killings. joining us from kaufman county now, martin savidge. how do they relate to the murders at hand? >> reporter: well, they don't, as you pointed out. these arrests show that they're not going to tolerate any threat and they're going to come down hard on you if you do. one posted something online and another called in on a tip line. both now are being held on $1
7:06 am
million each and charged with a terrific threat. as far as the investigation, there is not a lot that is being said here. however, there is a tremendous amount of resources. have the state resources that are here and many federal assets have been brought in. again, this is the kind of attack on law enforcement that certainly won't be tolerated. they want to make sure they get it done and get it done right. they're not talking about who the suspects are at this particular time. mclellands were murdered a week ago. she spoke to anderson last night about them. >> they were amazing. they were the most amazing people i have ever known in my entire life. they had such conviction and such strength and they really believed in what they were doing and they loved their family. you know, we have a blended family and five kids, they loved
7:07 am
all of us. they had so much to give. >> reporter: and many people believed in what they were doing, which is why they have picked up in their footsteps now and are trying to find their killers. mike mclelland was in a gun shop the day before he was found murder murdered. he had been talking to the gun shop owner, and he has said that he was worried about his staff and wondering what protection could be done. the gun shop owner said, of course, boy a weapon and bulletproof vests, but said that mclelland himself did not seem to be in fear of his own life. miguel? >> martin savidge, thank you very much. we'll take a look at an organized crime ring that could have ties to the murders. the store that sold the bushmaster rifle to kill 26 people at sandy hook elementary school can no longer sell guns. atf official told cnn that riverview gun sales lost its federal firearms license on
7:08 am
december 20th, just six days after the newtown massacre. police detective speculated gun sales at the store were stopped because of poor recordkeeping. adam lanza's mother bought the bushmaster rifle there two years earlier this past week. connecticut passed a law banning the sale of high-capacity magazines like the one lanza used at sandy hook. hepatitis scare in new york city after a west village restaurant worker tested positive for the disease, hepatitis a. the city's health department says anyone who had dessert at alta between march 23rd and april 27bd should get tested for hepatitis a as a precaution. workers at the restaurant will be doing the same. patrons appear to be shaken up. >> every single will be getting a shot no later than one day. >> great service. great food. i recommend it to a lot of people. i'm surprised.

7:14 am
>> my first instinct was like, i can't start crying. i looked down at my leg. i see my sneak er on, but my le is like this. >> he just kept chanting, just win the game. just win the game. we did that. >> i saw the pictures of them putting the trophy by my side and me sleeping with it. i was very proud. >> how are you feeling, kevin? >> good. thank you. >> thanks for all the support. thank you so much. >> my injury or not, i still want to win a national championship. they picked us to lose indiana in practice, the president did, but when i speak to him in the white house. at least my bracket's not broken. >> louisville, wichita state. you don't want to miss it, 3:00

7:16 am
out, part of that decision-making process they're going through when they were discussing rice. they kicked around ten-game suspension, kicked around firing him and settled on that three-game suspension. i guess that's another reason why jim wolf, along with tim pernetti, resigned yesterday. >> are there conspiracy theories out of this video, hidden for fears of rutgers participating? what are you hearing? >> i'm not buying that. they announced they were going into the big 10, accepted january 20th. pernetti didn't start his investigation into rice until november 27th. and big 10 commissioner came out and said this had no bearing whether they got into the conference or not. and this isn't going to matter either. just that market that rutgers brings for tv. >> big donors are pulling their money back, at least temporarily. what are you hearing? >> pernetti was amongst the big
7:17 am
donors at rutgers. a few of them have said we're holding off on more money in the future. we're not happy about the way this has been handled. that may not be a big hit for them right now. they are going to the wbig 10 ad their annual revenue will double. that's a big difference. employees are criminals and you don't get out alive. sound like a movie? it's a real organization and it might be connected to murders of the texas d.a. and his wife.

♪ >> didn't believe [ bleep ]. none of them did. >> hey! >> a scene from the movie "american history x" about a white supremacist who was rehabilitated in prison. lead character's discovery that a gang, member more about business than ideology. experts say it isn't just fiction. two white supremacist groups are being look ed at for possible
7:22 am
links of both the murder of colorado prison chief tom clements and the assassinations of district attorney mclelland and his wife. not just a loose prison gang. actually, highly organized gang that may have connections to the mexican drug cartels. more on how they became so sophisticated and are such a threat, t.j. lyden, author of skinhead confessions, with the southern poverty law center. mark, let's start with you. how sophisticated are they and do they have a business operation? >> they're sophisticated enough that they are able from their cells in prisons, often in solitary confinement, to essentially direct a criminal empire that extends beyond the
7:23 am
prison walls and out into the streets of our communities. what i mean by that largely is that they're running a very major methamphetamine distribution racket, something that reaches the millions of dollars. that, i think, has really been the remarkable thing, how they're able to get their messages out by written codes, verbal codes, sometimes through the use of their wives, girlfriends. get messages out. the fact is that the leadership, by and large, is in prison and often locked down, yet able to direct these things. >> organization and money. would you say millions of dollars that is the total worth of the organization? >> i think that's probably right. we're talking about a gang that has more than 1,000 members and probably a good deal more than that on the street as well. so, yes, i think we're talking a major methamphetamine racketeer. >> there have been some reports tying the aryan brotherhood of
7:24 am
texas to d.a. mclelland's murder because he helped to secure indictments. following the indictments they made threats against the texas law enforcement department. the killings aren't about ideologies, but about money, they say. take a listen to this. >> when the indictment happened, it didn't just -- this isn't an ideology battle here. this was financial. they took away some of their drug mules, people on the outside who were supplying them. >> t.j., do you agree with that, more about money than ideology? >> i completely agree with frank meenk, who made that statement. the truth is it isn't about ideology. it's about money. they use the swastika, trappings of white supremacy, the coding system. everything is used for financial gain. when you look back in december when they went after them in the
7:25 am
racketeering case, that put a big hurt on them. they don't like the loss of money. that's how they control. that's how they maintain. every group underneath -- mark can attest to this also -- all skinhead, all peckerwood subsets are basically their mule. they do their dirty work. you could have -- this may not be an abt member that had done these murders, but one of their satellite groups, this guy is trying to get in with them to earn his respect, earn his bones to become a member. >> do we see this as a nationwide group, mark? is it regional? how should we think about this group? >> no, abt is regional. it started in the texas prisons and has spread to some extent in prisons in neighboring states but it's really about texas. there's a common misconception that aryan brotherhood of texas is a subset of aryan
7:26 am
brotherhood, which is a great big national gang started many years earlier in 1964 in san quentin. no, it's a regional gang, much like the gang that is being blamed in colorado for the murder of the commissioner there, tom clements. >> their number one business is meth at the moment? >> yes, i think that's true. they also distribute heroin, cocaine and marijuana to a smaller extent. i think methamphetamine is the number one thing they're doing. >> t.j., you say they have direct links to the mexican c t cartels? how is that? >> inside the prison system, the main drug line comes from the hispanic gang. all white supremacy gangs since the 1960s have had a close allegiance with hispanic gangs. that's how the whites get their drugs, from the hispanic gang members and that's how they're able to distribute it out. they have connections, especially along the border sta
7:27 am
states, arizona, california, texas, new mexico. they have those connections with the drug cartels. between the heroin trade, methamphetamine trade, which is huge for them, and the extortion. you come to jail and, you know what i mean? john gotti paid $50,000 to the aryan brotherhood to secure his existence while he was in prison. that's a lot of money. >> according to the anti-defamation league, it's still with over 100 murders, 10 kidnappings. what is their ultimate goal, if there is one? >> their ultimate goal is to run a very lucrative criminal empire. they have been rather successful at that. most of those murders -- more than 100 murders that they've committed -- are aimed at their own people or at members of other gangs. these are generally not simply innocent members of the public who are robbed or whatever it may be. these are people in the

7:32 am
drone attack drills and missiles firing, not clear if the weapons are genuine. two missiles have been loaded on to launchers on the country's east coast. number two, the search for survivors at a building collapse in india has ended. a woman was pulled from the rubble earlier, likely the last survivor of the disaster. the death toll has risen to 72. 26 of those victims were children. police have listed a case of culpable homicide against the builder. joe donnelly of indiany and heidi heitkamp of north dakota now give support for same-sex marriage. tim johnson of south dakota, joe manchin of west virginia, mark

7:34 am
high-capacity magazines in the past two weeks. colorado and connecticut have passed similar new gun laws. joining me now is maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "real news at the blaise." maria, do we even need neufeld gun control laws with the states stepping up? >> good morning, miguel. good to see you. >> good morning. >> i do think we need federal gun control laws. this is the reason, miguel. states are actually listening to majorities of the american people who do support stricter gun safety laws. the problem is that if we don't do it at the federal level then what we have are guns going across state lines and that will diminish the controls being put in place by these states who are the ones who are doing the common sense measures that most americans agree with. if we don't have the umbrella laws at the federal level, for
7:35 am
example, here in the district, we have some of the strictest gun control laws, but they are not as effective as they could be, because criminals will go across the state loin in virginia, where it's very easy to get a gun. and that's why it is not as effe effective if we don't have the federal law controlling everything. >> amy, your thoughts. should this be a state's right issue? >> let's look at it practically, politically speaking. we see in the senate that the s senate majority leader, harry reid, himself a democrat, has no intention of trying to push for a ban on assault weapons or even limitations on high capacity magazines. so in terms of whether or not a federal law will get passed, i think we sort of know the answer to that. on a policy level, we've also seen that criminals buy guns illegally. they don't buy them legally. from state to state, citizens have the right, the ability and should have the prerogative to determine what their state's gun culture is going to be. that's going to be very
7:36 am
different, whether you're living in washington state, my home state, or louisiana, or new york city, where i live now. and i think these things should be decided by citizens. it is a second amendment right to bear arms. certainly there are limitations. i don't think we should have a one-size fits all. frankly, it doesn't fit the criminals. criminals are not willing to put on these straight jackets to get the guns that they want to use in crime. by the way, these gun laws would not have stopped that terrible, horrible young man in connecticut from committing the crime that he did. >> president obama, secretary of state john kerry, defense secretary chuck hagel and attorney general eric holder all agree to give back some of their salaries to stand in solidarity with those employees being f furloughed. is it political theater? >> it is.
7:37 am
our president, like many before him, is a multimillionaire. 5% of his salary comes up to about, i thinks $1,600 a month, means very little. it also draws attention to the fact that he likes to go golfing, goes golfing with tiger woods, his family is continually on vacation. why didn't he show the same solidarity when unemployment reached over 10% in the great recession? we had those terrible job numbers yesterday. as a bit of washington political theater, i don't think it was well staged. >> do you agree? >> no, absolutely not. are these moves going to completely fix our budget crisis? absolutely not. that's not what they're meant to do. they're meant to underscore what this president and democrats have said for a very long time. that is, we are all in this together and that democrats and leaders, especially the president on down, they are not immune to shared sacrifice. i think from a symbolic
7:38 am
standpoi standpoint, it does mean a lot. amy may say $1,600 is not a lot. a middle class family who is struggling, it is a lot. that's what this moves underscores, the fact this democrats and this president want to do something to fix our budget woes and focus on the fact that right now the people who are -- who are suffering the most on their backs are middle class families and working class families whose programs are being cut by the sequester. >> not getting any mileage out of this. >> republicans have done nothing to fix this and this focuses on the president saying this is shared sacrifice and we're all in this together. >> we'll have to see where this one goes. they haven't figured out the sequestration issue. off-the-cuff remarks, first the first lady. >> believe me, as a busy, single mother. or i shouldn't say single. as a busy mother, sometimes when
7:39 am
you've got the husband is president, it can feel a little single, but he's there. >> all right. and earlier in the woek, the president was at an event in california and took time to praise the state's attorney general. after talking about her professional success, he added she's one of the best looking attorney generals in the country. >> i think both of these comments were completely innocent and have been completely overblown. i haven't heard a lot of reporting on michelle obama's comment. i do think that was just a slip of the tongue and anybody who has very busy husbands understands what she's going through. and the president's comment is, in my mind, into the category of oh, please. come on. we have so many more important things to focus on. when the president can't give a nice compliment to one of his closest friends, to one of his best friends, after he commends her on being a very tough and
7:40 am
talented attorney general, then i think we've gotten to the point where we want our president to be human, but the moment that he is, then everyone is on his back. >> amy, does the president get a pass here? >> i say that he does. and i agree that these are innocent remarks. and if he thinks the attorney general is a pretty lady, big deal. i would like to see the forebearance on the other side. if a republican made these remarks, democrats would be all over them. we would be hearing about binders full of women as we did during the last election instead of a compliment in an innocent, human way, as maria said, as it was intended. >> maria cardona and amy holmes, thank you both very much. >> thanks, miguel. >> thank you. third grader robby novak known as kid president is getting a ton of online attention. take a look at why. >> what grade are you in? >> third. >> third? >> uh-huh. >> third grade?
7:41 am
>> uh-huh. >> how is school going? >> good. >> going pretty good? i know you have all these other activities. >> yeah. >> so much demand on your time, trying to balance being president and being in the third grade, you know. that's a lot of stuff. >> uh-huh. >> but you seem to be handling it pretty well. >> very well. >> the white house pulled off an april fools' joke on monday with the help of a 9-year-old youtube sensation with a white house tweet announcing a special video message from the president. when viewers tuned in to white house website to watch they were punked by this pint-sized president. adorable. men and women of sterling, cooper, draper, price are back. the creator of "mad men" is back to talk about the latest season. flying is old hat for business travelers. the act of soaring across an ocean
