8:00 am
good morning to our viewers in the west. it is wednesday september 7th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." more real news ahead including an option for voters who do not like hillary clinton or donald trump. libertarian candidates are here to talk about the campaign and why they want to get rid of the irs. but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> on tuesday danny heinrich confessed to killing the young boy. >> sentencing is scheduled for november 21st. yesterday, she really unloaded. she argued he's being held to reality star standards even as he's running for president. >> now trump is turning the table calling clinton's private e-mail server and handling of confidential documents criminal.
8:01 am
>> evidence will be spoken to because the insecticide is harmless, but i got to tell you, convincing some people around here is proving to be difficult. >> what do you make of the velocity and size of the apology? >> this is big. and it's basically unprecedented. >> big change is likely to be what goes away, no more little hole in the bottom to plug in your familiar headphone jack. there's no doubting the natural beauty of this region, but this place is raising questions. why does this have one of the world's highest concentrations of people over 100 years old? saw mr. trump here asked him how did it goad, he said great, said he learned a lot of things. what do you think he took away from today? >> oh -- >> i love this so much. this is going to be my new party move. so i just started this new juice plan and i'm going to be like, my luggage. it works every time. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. a new poll out this morning
8:02 am
finds veterans and active military members like donald trump. the online poll gives him a 19-point lead over hillary clinton in this group. >> hillary clinton just released the list of 95 retired generals and admirals endorsing her. donald trump has a similar list with 88 retired generals and admirals. the candidates gave dueling speeches in battleground states on how to defeat isis. >> i will ask congress to eliminate the sequester and immediately reinvest in our military. >> i will give our military everything they need when they're serving overseas. i will support them with care in the benefits that they need and deserve when they come back home. >> so going to convene my top generals and give them a simple instruction. they will have 30 days to submit to the oval office a plan for soundly and quickly defeating isis. >> i will work closely with our allies, not just to contain
8:03 am
isis, but defeat them. first, we're going to take out their stronghold in iraq and syria. second, we're going to dismantle their global terror infrastructure on the ground and online. third, we're going to bolster our defenses, including with an intelligence surge. >> we're going to build beautiful safe zones in syria, and other people are going to pay for it. it's called the opm theory of money. i love that theory. it's called other people's money. >> hillary clinton and donald trump will both be in new york tonight. with a majority of voters having an unfavorable view of hillary clinton and donald trump, some are looking for a different choice. the libertarian party hopes to provide that alternative. its platform calls for an end to government debt and no restrictions on personal relationships. the party also wants to repeal income tax, abolish the irs, and introduce a free market health care system. former governors gary johnson and bill weld are running as the libertarian party's president
8:04 am
and vice presidential candidates. they join us now at the table. welcome. >> hey, thanks. >> thank you. >> great to have you guys here. governor johnson, let me start with you. you have said it would be game over if you don't get into the presidential debates. you haven't yet reached the 15% polling threshold in order to do that. what are you doing to change that with the debate less than 20 days away? >> well, it isn't game over if we're not in the first debate, but if we're not in the debates, it is game over. i mean, there's no way that you can win the presidential race without being in the debates. but right now everyone -- or 99% of the press is just reporting the top line on these polls. and if you dig down, about half these polls are including our name in this. and right now, yesterday "the washington post," in 15 states we're at 16%, in some states 19% and in 40 states we're over 10%. so we continue to ratchet up. will it be enough to reach that
8:05 am
first debate? we'll have to see. >> you use the word win, you can win the presidency. do you realistically expect you can win the presidency or the role as you play as spoiler for one candidate or the other? >> charlie, if we're in the presidential debates, 100% of people will know who we are. and we think we have the chance to run the table on them. >> run the table? >> run the table. >> yeah. the reason we think that is we think we have winning arguments. we're fiscally responsible, we're socially inclusive. that doesn't describe either of the other parties. no one would accuse the democrats of being fiscally responsible when it comes to the budget if they get in. and the republicans, you know, they made their platform even meaner than it was before their convention to be exclusionary toward certain groups. so we think we got a six-lane highway right up the middle and that represents the thinking of about 60% of the voters. >> by definition, governor weld, have you left the republican party? >> yes, i have. and i told the libertarians i would never return. it doesn't mean i'm not friendly, but it means i get to ask out loud why would any
8:06 am
republican vote for donald trump? he's anti free trade, pro entitlements, unreliable. >> one thing to help drill down on the issues, let's first start with immigration. governor, you have said not only would you not build a wall, you're on the opposite side. you would allow more immigration in this country. you would make it easier to come to this country. >> right. to get a work visa. a work visa should entail a background check and a social security card so taxes get paid. there's a reason why there are 11 million undocumented workers in this country. it's impossible to get across the border legally. >> allow more people into the united states. >> yeah, it's a labor force issue. no one knows better than gary johnson as a southwest border governor, but mr. trump has planted this canard in the public consciousness that all 11 million undocumented workers are, you know, champing at the bit to become citizens. that's just not true. >> but when you say you invite people to come in, you're talking about legal entry into the united states. >> yes. >> but the big debate seems to be what happens to the people
8:07 am
who are here now, who are undocumented, here un -- illegally. >> yes. so set up an easy way for those to come in to the door and get a work visa, as long as they've been law-abiding. >> your point, governor, is don't grant them citizenship. put them in the system. >> no, if they're working, get them a work visa, subject them to a background check, get them a social security card so they can pay taxes. get them in the system and out of the shadows. that's what's so unhealthy about this. >> let's talk about the taxes because you said you want to abolish the irs, which got a lot of people's attention. rightfully so. and you want to replace it with a federal consumption tax. how does that work? >> well, first of all, count on the two of us with regard to consistency. so consistency, you can count on us to support any initiative out of congress that's going to lower taxes, that's going to simplify taxes. but, if i could wave a magic wand, i would eliminate income tax, i would eliminate corporate
8:08 am
tax and replace it with one federal consumption tax. >> you know what their argument is against a consumption tax, it is not fair. >> well, it's regressive. and the way that the fair tax deals with it being regressive is that issues everyone in the country a prebate check of $200 a month allows to pay up to the point of poverty level. >> one question about libertarian, when i first heard the word libertarian, it was defined to me as people who did not in the least government possible high respect for individual libertieliberties. ronald reagan said the problem government is not the solution, government is the problem. is government the problem? >> well, i think that government is best which governs least. i think that is our credo. the man who said that originally was thomas jefferson. we're just a pair of jeffersonian liberals. >> keep government out of the
8:09 am
bedroom, out of my pocketbook. >> i think that's reflective of most people. >> you still enjoying this process? >> this is my briar patch. i'm so grateful for gary for getting me into this. >> there's an honest man right there. love the game. >> that's the pitch we're trying to make here also is, you know, we're not hypocrites. we don't say one thing and do another. >> gary johnson, bill weld, great to have you here. >> thank you very much. >> they helped america win the space race, but didn't share the glory. >> it's not a first or an only story, it's a story of a group of women who were given a chance and who performed. and who opened doors for the women who came behind them. >> ahead, the hidden story of the women who played a crucial

here's a view, we're counting down to monday's special broadcast from that
8:15 am
museum. we'll be bringing the stories of african-american pioneers and their contributions to politics, art, pop culture and science. one story that had been lost to history is about the so-called human computers. they are a group of women, many of them black, who helped put a man on the moon. their intellect was an essential part of america's ability to launch rockets into space. jan crawford shows us how they were relegated to just a footnote in history, until now. >> five, four, three, two, one -- >> reporter: it was a race to secure america's future at the forefront of space. >> we have liftoff. >> reporter: fueled by men brave enough to travel where no one had gone before. >> that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. >> boy -- >> reporter: the astronauts were superstars, engineers, the stuff of movie legend. but america's triumph in the space race was made possible by another group the country didn't
8:16 am
see. they were called human computers, and they were women, many of them african-american hired by nasa to hand calculate propulsion, lift, thrust and trajectory. >> they had to make sure that the planes were safe, that the planes were fast, that they were efficient, that the astronaut not only went out into space but that he came back safely. i mean, this was life or death. this is life or death. this is the importance. you do the work right, you do it right the first time. >> reporter: the daughter of a nasa scientist, margo was raised in hampton, virginia, the same town where these women once worked, a hidden history that had been staring her in the face. >> it's not a first or an only story. it's a story of a group of women who were given a chance and who performed. and who opened doors for the women who came behind them. >> reporter: her new book, "hidden figures" and upcoming movie -- >> what do you do for nasa? >> reporter: in the story of how
8:17 am
a small band of black women joined the space program in the '50s and the '60s defined female stereotypes and challenging a segregated system. >> i had no idea they hired -- >> there were quite a few women working in the space program. >> reporter: one of those women was catherine johnson. on her 98th birthday she still lives by the same motto her father told her when she was young. >> you're as good as anybody here. >> reporter: and you took that to heart? >> yeah. you know worse, you know better. >> reporter: at nasa she calculated the trajectory of alan shepherd's 1961 space flight, verified the numbers guiding john glen's orbit. and in 1969, her numbers helped the apollo mission land on the moon. >> there is no question that every single day, every number, every research report, everything that they did was also directed at expanding the concept of what was possible for people who looked like them.
8:18 am
>> two, four, six, eight -- >> reporter: working in the jim crow south, these women were relegated to the back of the bus to get to work. they couldn't use the same bathrooms or sit at the same lunch tables. langley's newly diverse workforce made it not just a flight laboratory but a social experiment. do you think that there's something about math that it doesn't matter -- it's the equalizer. >> in math, when you're working with it, you know what you're doing is either right or it's wrong. >> reporter: leland melvin started at nasa just a few years after johnson retired. >> her name was actually spoken kind of like in reverence, you know? like catherine johnson. >> reporter: melvin was an engineer, an astronaut who flew on two space missions. >> they were the barrier breakers that helped other people see that there were other opportunities at nasa. it takes a few people to establish a foothold, no matter
8:19 am
what that foothold is. >> this really is a story about the american dream. and i think -- >> reporter: the struggle for the american dream. >> it's a struggle for the american dream. what i really hope this story does is fuse these different histories to the american dream. just because the protagonists of this book are black women does not mean that this is any way less an american story. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning," jan crawford, hampton, virginia. >> i'm glad that story's coming out -- >> i couldn't think of a more american story. >> i know. i lof leland melvin saying catherine johnson, i'd never heard of the story until recently. >> i know. our kids have these great books, they have who is steve jobs, who is harriet tubman. you know, they should do who is catherine johnson. >> there you go. >> great nasa scientist. >> an american story and now we're telling it. tune in on monday, september 12th, another reason for "cbs

8:35 am
are broken. there is fractured leadership, but we do have millions of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in america. unfortunately, those stories are not being told. so we, as a company, said at a time in america where there is such a cloud hanging over the country, especially during this political season, let's go out and let's find ten stories. we found hundreds. but these stories need to be told and i thank you for the opportunity, because we need to shine a light on people who are doing extraordinary things. and i think the country is not going to be fixed by people in washington. not in the near term. but it can be fixed by people doing extraordinary things every day. i hope this series is a opportunity for people to see in nair their neighborhood, their community, they can do things to help their neighbor and their communities. >> you just focused on an x-nfl player helping veterans by setting up this gym. you've been to that gym, right? >> i have met every one of these ten people and i've been to dallas recently. i must tell you, it's both heart

wrenching and heart warming to see an nfl player who has lost his profession, commit himself to helping those people who came back from iraq and from afghanistan. as you saw from the video, they are in a very tough position. >> what is it you think separates people who make sure that they do something that is inspiring and that makes a difference? just a common gene? >> i think the common gene is that we, as a country, for some reason, have lost our sense of humanity, but when we see it, we are drawn to it. and i think the people that we have met have given us such a gift, because everyone has given us the opportunity to see what it means to serve, to be a servant and leader. i think i think when you're around these people, you want to do more. i think so much negativity in this country. after traveling with these
8:37 am
people, i'm more optimistic not on what is going on in washington and but the hate and bigotry. what is going on across the country of people helping each other is positive and those are the stories that need to be told. >> you seem, howard, to be frustrated by the political system. you say it's damaged by a lack of civility and courage in washington and leaders of both parties have abdicated their responsibilities. you're putting the blame on both sides? >> i stopped blaming washington a long time ago. i said what can we do as a country and people to de-- washington is broken. we don't have truth or authentici authenticity. this election cycle is something has embarrassed the country and the world. i probably travel as much as any ceo around the world. i've been to china once before in the last ten years. people are constantly asking me, is this really possible?
8:38 am
is this really serious? can you have two candidates that have almost 70% unapproval rating running for president? >> you can't change the system without participating in the system. and the political process. >> very true. i think as a result of that, we must have people getting very active but it's not the decision we make every four years. it's a decision we make every day. >> but are you involved in any way in the political process? are you supporting a candidate or are you engaged in this presidential election, or the statewide elections in washington? >> i'm engaged as a private citizen, recognizing that hillary clinton needs to be the next president of the united states. >> so you have endorsed her? >> he just did. >> let me ask you about company and political -- is there a concern about, you know, howard schultz can be involved in political activism but having a company involved in political activism, do you worry about turning off, you know -- >> your customers. >> your customers who may be

added color and sounds. a lot of the stuff that we think of, like the cathedrals and russian movie was added later to make it feel secretive like behind the iron curtain and feel dangerous. >> 400 million downloads? >> at least. ten and ten of millions before that on inten -- nintendo system. >> it was a high school kid in moscow and was laid up for a while and got into math and puzzles and became a math genius and got into early computer programming in the '70s and '80s in the soviet union. he used his spare time to re-create the puzzle games he loved as a kid. >> many of us parents are worried about our kids hooked on
8:47 am
