candidates blasted the new rules for the gun sales. governor chris christie said the president was acting like a petulant child. senator ted cruz said he would rescind every single illegal and unconstitutional executive action that was taken. and senator marco rubio says this, the president undermines the constitution. despite the criticism, the president says he is within his legal authority. jan crawford is at the white house. jan, good morning. first, what's in this plan and what will he need congress, though, to approve in order to cetera? >> reporter: well, right. first of all, the senior administration officials briefed reporters last night on some of the details the president will be announcing later on today. essentially they focus on fixing flaws and loopholes in the checks. they require gun dealers, for example, to be licensed even if they just sell guns at gun sales or on the internet. they would add more federal employees to help carry out those background checks to make
effective. here's where they're going to need some congressional approval. the president is asking, for example, to add 200 more atf agents and investigators. so he's asking congress to budget that.
he's asking congress to give $500 million in additional funding for mental health treatment, again to try to offer services to deal with some of the recent episodes we've seen of terrible gun violence. so he's going to have to go to congress for those. the rest of them are basically instructions to federal executive agencies on how to carry out some of the existing laws. >> what kind of legal -- no, it's your birthday. you go. >> no, but please keep remembering. >> i will remember. jan, what kind of legal challenges does he face? yesterday he said this is within my legal authority. >> reporter: opponents are going to argue that he's doing an unconstitutional end run around congress. remember, congress passes the laws under our constitution and the president faithfully executes them so they're going
separation of powers issues, they're going to say it raises issues under the second amendment. the president is confident that he will prevail. think about this, he's got just a year left in office and lawsuits take forever so this could be tied up in court until the end of his administration, meaning they may never be implemented, some of these proposals, unless the next president decides to pick up the ball and run with it. >> i assume it's true for the president that he believes that not just those cases, those awful, obscene, atrocious cases of multiple acts of violence, but also individual acts of violence because of access to guns? >> well, right. that's right, charlie. of course no one says these would have prevented san bernardino or sandy hook, but the president says if they can stop just one death, then it will be worth it. >> jan, thank you so much. for the first time in this presidential race, hillary clinton's campaign brought bill clinton to new hampshire. the former president was her co-strategist in 2008 and he campaigned vigorously for her
his attitude on monday was far more subdued. he did not mention donald trump or respond to recent attacks. what he believes the election is all about. >> i don't fit anymore. first of all, i'm a happy grandfather and i'm not mad at anybody. and secondly, i thought an election is supposed to be a job interview. this election is about restoring broadly shared prosperity. that is how we're going to keep america safe and still keep it america. preserve our individual liberties and our reputation for being an open country, our belief in diversity and our understanding that one of our great meal tickets in the next 20 years is going to be there's somebody here from everywhere else.
on hillary clinton at a rally across the massachusetts border. >> we don't need four more years of obama, and that's what you're getting with hillary. that's what you're getting. no, that's what you're getting. and i believe it might be even worse, if you want to know the truth. it might be worse. >> the democratic front-runner told iowa voters she won't respond to trump. she said her new year's resolution is to, quote, let him live in his own alternate reality. states in the south this morning are preparing for the potential of devastating floods. rising waters are blamed for the deaths of at least 25 people in missouri and illinois. flood warnings are in place along the mississippi river as the water moves south. >> the mississippi swelled four miles past its banks in alexander county, illinois. a nearby levee broke covering 14,000 acres under water. at least 125 buildings are flooded there. floodwaters are already making
like mud island, tennessee. voluntary evacuations are under way in low-lying mississippi neighborhoods. it's official, guns and roses is planning a return to the jungle. the group is returned in the lineup for the coachella music festival in california. guns and roses will headline twice in april. >> the reunion publicly signals the end of disputes among the band's founding members. there was tension with lead singer axl rose. the two haven't performed on stage together in more than 20 years. rose tweeted last night saying, okay, okay, it's confirmed. guns n roses is headlining the 2016 coachella. see everyone there. >> remember when he was here we asked if it could happen and he
he didn't talk about coachella but he was very open. >> it's going to be very popular. can you fine tune your health care and live better? dr. david agus is in our toyota green room with his new book exploring the lucky years. good morning. it's cold out there with wind chills near zero but it will turn out to be a nice day with sunshine, a brisk wind and melting highs in the mid 30s. today will be the nicest day of the next 8 days. a light wintry mix of rain and snow moves in wednesday followed by rain on thursday and light snow friday into saturday. then temps take a big tumble as

the paris attacks, senators came together for a top-secret briefing on the terrorist threat... marco rubio was missing - fundraising in california instead. two weeks later, terrorists struck again in san bernardino... and where was marco? fundraising again in new orleans. over the last 3 years, rubio has missed important national security hearings and missed more total votes than any other senator. politics first: that's the rubio way. right to rise usa
in our "morning rounds" the brand new world of health breakthroughs in medicine are reaching a tipping point. that's what dr. david agus says in his new book called "the lucky years." we'll be able to edit dna, fight disease, reverse aging, prolong fertility and turn cancer into a manageable condition. the book is published by simon
dr. agus is in the studio live and in color today. >> good morning, gayle. >> "the lucky years" has nothing to do with wealth or social status you say. we're all part of the lucky years because? >> listen, this revolution is happening now and it literally is. i'm with you guys once or twice a week with a breakthrough happening all the time. these are breakthroughs that will change the playing field and it equalizes the playing field. we now can do things like approaching reversing aging. we can prevent disease. we can treat disease like never before. this is an amazing time in what i do. >> let's start with reversing aging. >> yeah. as birthday boy. >> how can we reverse aging? >> it's an amazing story. the 1950s, wanda lunsford published a paper. she took an old rat and young rat, put them to sleep and tied their skin together. after a day or so their blood supplies joined.
mouse had neurons growing in the brain. she claimed she reversed aging. people called her dracula and frankenstein. six months ago. three separate labs in the country repeated it and it worked. so it turns out there are proteins in young individuals up until age 25 that turn on stem cells. our stem cells go to sleep at age 25. so what's amazing is the cure for diseases is actually asleep within us. and this is a way to potentially wake it up. >> to latch on to some young people i'm thinking. i thought that was very fascinating. >> the lucky years too and staying healthy longer also means preventing disease, some of the most common diseases. i just did a story on gene editing technology. tell us about the promise that holds.
one letter of your three billion letter code and change it. that means if you have inherited a defect in, say, breast cancer or heart disease or something else, we can go in and change that one letter. so now it's happened in china. they actually changed the dna of an embryo. at the same time we need to regulate it and do it right, but this was the potential of being transformative. something as wild and science fiction like as you can take an organ from an animal and change the dna to allow it to be used in a human in transplants. >> how far off are they? >> this is happening now. >> taking an animal's organ and transplant it? >> we're starting to design pigs to have human proteins on their surface and using that for kidney transplants over the next decade will happen. >> it's already happening with heart valving. >> but this is a living, functioning organ where a heart valve is a piece of tissue. >> you said there's never any right answers in health, there
>> it's based on your value system. this was a maturation for me. i really learned that it's the right way for you as an individual and we all shouldn't do everything the same. that's why personalized medicine is going to be fantastic based on data but value system is a key part of making decisions. >> you also say there's a brave new world in fertility coming. what is that? >> so there's -- you inherit dna from your mother and father and those are your chromosomes. women with mitochondrial disorders historically couldn't have children. there was a doctor in new jersey taking out their nucleus and putting that into a donor's egg so a child had three parents. you can now do that for a 40 or 50-year-old woman and allow them to give birth. so really changing the playing field to equalize it. this is a different world. people are giving birth later and later and this is an empowering technology that will be transformative. >> and if you live near the
disease are greater? that's surprising. >> this is an exciting finding. if you do concentric circles around an airport, heart disease risk goes up. so we need quiet. if you live in the city or elsewhere, put a little foam in your ears when you sleep. i've got a 150-pound dog that snores. i sleep with ear plugs every night. your brain needs quiet. >> thank you, dr. agus. >> "the lucky years." >> thank you very much. >> as opposed to the yucky years. yucky years is a better title. it depose on sale today, by the way. tomorrow we'll continue our look at the lucky years with a panel on the advances in preventing and treating cancer. so you're coming back two days in a row, lucky us. >> i am lucky too. >> all right, thanks. a 3-year-old girl saved after a terrifying night. >> are you okay? come here. >> meet the police officer who brought her out of the cold. that's next here on "cbs this
tonight. i'm moving to a place where i can get internet from centurylink. if i get the three year price lock, am i stuck with the three year contract? no. that just means the price won't change. for three years. that way the price is locked, you're not. you can just hang out and be free. lock in your monthly price for 3 years without a contract when you bundle with unlimited nationwide calling. see you in 2018. (donkey sound) (elephant sound) there's a big difference between making noise, (tapping sound) and making sense. (elephant sound) (donkey sound) when it comes to social security, we need more than lip service. our next president needs a real plan to keep social security strong. (elephant noise)
>> there is a manhunt for a little girl. listen to this audio from this body camera. >> hi sweet heart. are you okay? come here. come here. come here. >> oh my gosh, caroline was crying and described as very cold and very scared after the nearly five-hour drama. the officers says he's not a hero. but he is a father. >> i almost started crying. this is very happy, i'm happy and thankful we were able to find her. >> police are hunting for the kidnapper and a second man seen at the scene of the car jacking. thank goodness she is okay. >> you can tell he's got young daughter, come here, sweet heart. can you tell. that was so nice.

was in the pottawattamie county jail on an unrelated case when he was charged. authorities have recovered the body of a missing teen after his canoe capsized in eastern iowa. 17- year-old tanner wymer's body was recovered monday morning in the coralville reservoir. 51-year-old michael felton also went overboard.. but was able to swim to shore. officials say the boat may have capsized when someone stood up to take a photo. let's first get a check on traffic!
>> these exist, they're pre-samuel l. jackson. >> okay. >> i believe if you perform these in your own way, they will from here on out and forever belong to you. >> frankly, my dear, i don't give-a-damn! hello, my name is indigo montoya, you killed my father. prepare to die. mrs. robinson, you trying to se dues me? . you shall not pass.
>> akuna matada. >> he does own them. very good. >> that was good. >> i don't give-a-damn. that's my favorite one. >> mrs. robinson, are you trying to se dues me? >> i love it. >> i know how great it is to produce those iconic movie lines that we all know. >> we all know. that's why it's funny. welcome back to "cbs this morning," coming up in this half hour, what's going on with this bad weather, what nasa is learning about millions of people. lolo jones is trying for her fourth chance to compete in the games. she is in studio 57 to show us how she is overcoming injuries after what she calls her worst year professionally. that is ahead. right now, it's time to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. houston reports on a terrifying test drive for a car salesman, aattacker posed as a customer.

we are already coming off of what's the hottest year on record 2015 and the hottest month in the hottest year, which was july some think of the earth as running a chronic fever. now, on top of that chronic fever comes the acute fever of el nino. which occurs when westerly winds that usually push warm pacific water over to the west side of the pacific weaken or reverse, ae louing that warm water to slosh back east. that tends to heat up the northern -- north american hemisphere. >> we're talking el 19io. nasa says the images could rival the one of 1997, 1998, that killed 23,000 people world wide. what does that mean for us? the big snow we're having in the mid-west? what else does it mean? >> the know in the mid-west t. droughts we are seeing in central america, which are
and security and 10 million people in africa food and security. you seen the images with the flooding across mississippi. we're going to see extreme heat spikes over the summer. which will affect vulnerable population, older people, sickly people, very young people. so this could take a much bigger toll than in 1998. >> it was in the '70s on the east coast for christmas. the north pole is 50 degrees higher, they say. so is this the new normal? >> this is the new normal t. problem, i'm glad you brought up the north pole. because what happens when the people gets above freezing is obviously the arctic ice cap shrinks. ice caps reflect sunlight back into space. the smaller the arctic ice cap gets the more warmth that the dark waters can absorb, so you got sort of a dangerous feedback. >> we haven't mentioned global warming. >> global warming is a real phenomenon. what i admire about the nasa scientists in these cases is
single weather event is linked to climate change. it certainly isn't. if are you a heavy smoker, not every cold will be smoke related. a lot are. you very much have to quit your pack a day if you want to stay healthy. >> given you look at science and a tough year weather wise with eknow, though, weather can affect national security. right? >> weather absolutely affects national security. any time you get food and security in any places of the world, you have a tendency for political unrest. the u.s. is no longer likes to say we're not going to be the policeman of the world any longer, still, people turn to us when you get this kind of problem. when the u.s. infrastructure is threatened the way it is along the mississippi the way it was in new orleans ten years ago, these are issues that divert funds, divert resources, that divert energy, affect shipping. all of these things go to the straight of national. >> so what can we do?
unfortunately, right now, has to do with a lot of short-term steps. you can make sure there are cooling centers for older people in the summer. can you make sure we have water cons vacation in drought stricken areas we have flood law, levies, in flood-prone areas. we also have to be willing to say it's time to address this in the long term. the paris climate accord was a very, very good sign. the u.s. as the world's leading emitter has to take the lead in curbing this problem. >> important information, thanks, jeff. >> thanks so much. olympic hurdleer and bobsleder lolo jones is right here in studio 57. on the road to a comeback in rio. we will look at how she always sets her own course and has defied good morning. it's cold out there with wind chills near zero but it will turn out to be a nice day with sunshine, a brisk wind and melting highs in the mid 30s. today will be the nicest day of the next 8 days. a

>> olympic track and field star, her name is lolo jones is one of ten american athletes to compete in both the summer and winter games, thank you very much. only 130 people world wide can make that claim. on that list, 25 women. now the hurdler and bobsledder is focused on the summer games in rio. she is putting her what she
after two surgeries and several injuries. if she makes the u.s. team, it will be her fourth olympic appearance. lolo jones is with us in studio. first we will take a look at her long olympic roller coaster. for more than half her life, lolo jones has been clearing hurdles on and off the track t. photo genic olympian and iowa native is an 11-time all american. she began her racing career as a student at louisiana state university, where she won national titles in both sprint relays and the hurdles. >> it's a fair start. here's the first hurdle. >> reporter: in 2008, jones entered the beijing summer olympics as a gold medal favorite in the 100 meter hurdles. ahead of the pack, with gold in her grasp, she hit the second to last hurdle resulting in a 7th placed finish. >> best time going into the olympics. best time going out. i didn't get that gold medical.
in 2011 after spinal surgery. her quick recovery led to a spot on the 2012 summer games in london. an olympic medal still proved to be out of reach for the 4th place finish. in 2014 jones traded her track sneaker for a helmet and joined the u.s. bobsled team in sochi. the track star has yet to win an olympic medal. that has not stopped her from becoming one of team usa's favorite stars. >> this is really pretty. lolo, gorgeous. >> reporter: her magazine worthy good looks has secured deals with some of the biggest brands. with it, criticism of whether she deserves the spotlight. jones continues to brush off critics. less than three months out of hip surgery, seven months before the summer olympics. she is working hard to find her stride. >> wow, lolo, wow. >> yeah. >> worst year professionally. what happened? lay it out for us, where do you
>> well, this last season, i had two surgery, a torn shoulder. then a torn hip later onch they were quick to come back. from i was like, man, like is this it or is this a sign to give up? or this a sign to get killed? >> what keeps you motivated? how are you doing? >> well, you laugh a lot. although i've placed success, i've tasted as well a lot of failure. i think for me knowing that, you know, you will not take joy in small victories, also how you leave something is how you enter. how your attitude is when you cross the finish line is how you enter your next race. if i get down on myself, that itself how i'm going to carry it into the next race. so every olympic i failed at. i have to look at the good side, winter olympic, i got to 11. i'm one of the ten people to go to winter olympics. when you are pursuing a goal. will you fail on that path to that goal. make sure you had just your attitude.
have that negativity when you attempt it. >> you are training for the olympics inryio. you turn 34 on opening day. >> why do they do that, awful? >> 34 is young, stronger than ever. >> strong. >> stronger than ever. how do you think you will train differently for this olympics than have you in past olympics? >> every year i have to remote rate is myself. track is essentially who can work out the best? there is no game involved. it's who is the best condition. so every year i try a different workout. pilates one year. yoga the next. i do a workout similar, involving science behind it. heart rate monitors. every year i try out something new. this one fit and worked well with the post-surgery that i feed. >> and you are a spokesman for them, too? >> yeah, i am a spokesman, i was kind of shocked and amazed you
can involve beginning level to eb up is getting fit. >> for track stars, is there some combination of hand-eye coordination for golfers and baseball hitters? >> not as much, you know, i think they're more specific. obviously, when i have a hurdle coming at me very fast, i have to have hand-eye coordination. there are not specific things in my dun time that focuses on that. we are concerned at going over a hurdle in high speed in a race environment. >> track stars have what? >> determination. >> they have to. >> our workouts are running. everybody hates rung. treadmill, like, yeah. so you know just to get through that day, what are you going to do for practice today? i'm going to run. what are you going to do tomorrow? i'm going to run. >> lolo, you have a lot of haters on the internet. people tear you down, she is very good looking. you are, you are stunningly gorgeous. they say, she ain't won no
>> i can show you my medals, i'll show you mine. really, somebody else in the room can do what you do? you do get a lot of criticism. how do you deal with that? you heard it? >> i can tell my staff i'm a three time world champion, i'm the fastest american indoor record holder. >> that means nothing to them. at the end of the day i have to know my opinion of what i've done in track is not altered by what they think of me. it comes by how hard i worked and what i've achieved. everybody will face criticism. you start a business, family says, you can't do that. you have to say i can do that. take joy in the small things have you overcome. will you get where you are at. >> the first challenge is to make the team? >> the first challenge is to make the team t. best feeling in my life, when i cross that finish line, no one can take that away. every american who has made it on the team and has the chance to represent their country in olympic, knows there is no grarlt honor.
is to walk in that stadium and hear that. with the flag flying. >> to know that people back home are watching you an supporting you. it's something that i always cherish. >> you have been candidate about being sell bat. can we discuss that? >> let's. i hope my husband is watching, my future husband is watching. >> you made that decision why? >> to honor my future husband and for god, it's i'm a devout krichlths i believe in that. i believe within growing up i saw a lot of girls my age get in trouble or just in the wrong environment and there are more girls than i would, they'd get pregnant and be off the track team. >> is it hard? >> is it hard? no, is it hard? >> not to be funny. >> it's extremely hard. >> tell her how hard it is. >> it brings a lot of lonely nights for sure. >> did you have a boyfriends in.
>> i got to fix you up with somebody. >> i'm going to bebe working on that today. but it is difficult. >> it's difficult because there is a lot of people that you tend to be grit with, but they don't want to wait. so that makes a lot of tension. so you see, you know, people are having fun. but you are doing this to honor your future spouse. >> lolo, what's your real name? >> my real flame is lori. >> we are rooting for you. great to have an olympian at the table? we hope you get married soon.
