tv Early Today NBC January 13, 2016 4:00am-4:30am CST
get off! it's wednesday, january 13th, and coming up on "early today" president obama cautions the nation, hits republicans hard and optimistic head nothinging into his final year. >> that's what makes me so hopeful about our future. i believe in change because i believe in you, the american people and that's why i stand here as confident as i've ever been that the state of our union is strong. we're awaiting the release of 10 u.s. sailors. the nfl votes to bring the
and today's the big day. the world's largest jackpot ever, powerball is just hours away. "early today" starts right now. and good morning everybody. i'm shannon mulaire. we, the people, have a lot to consider following president obama's final state of the union address. the focus was on major issues facing our future and in a less obvious way, the 2016 election. >> let me start with the economy and a basic fact. the united states of america, right now, has the strongest, most durable economy in the world. last year vice president biden said that with the new moon shot, america can cure cancer. today i'm announcing a new national effort to get it done
for all of us, i'm putting joe in charge of mission control. for had loved ones we've all lost, for the families that we can still save, let's make america the country that cures cancer once and for all. i told you earlier all the talk of america's economic decline is political hot air, so is the rhetoric about the enemies getting stronger and our enemyin america getting weaker. more calls to carpet bomb civilians. that may work as a tv sound bite but it doesn't pass muster on the world stage. i will keep working to shut down the prison at guantanamo. it's expensive, unnecessary and only serves as a recruitment
when they assault muslims whether abroad or our fellow citizens, when a mosque is vandalized, or a kid is called names, that doesn't make us safer. that's not telling it like it is. it's just wrong. it's one of the few regrets of my presidency. that the ranker and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better. i believe we have to reduce the influence of money in our politics. i believe in change because i believe in you. the american people. and that's why i stand here as confident as i have ever been that the state of our union is strong. thank you. god bless you.
>> shortly after south carolina governor delivered the republican response. >> as he enters his final year in office, many americans are still feeling the squeeze of an economy too weak to raise income levels. we're feeling a crushing national debt, a health care plan that has made insurance less affordable and doctors less available and chaotic unrest in many of our cities. even worse, we're facing the most dangerous terrorist threat our nation has seen since september 11th and this president seems unwilling or unable to deal with it. >> looking ahead, the republican presidential candidates will have their say at the next gop debate tomorrow night. just hours before the state of the union, the 10 american crew members were detained by
one of them developed mechanical issues and they both drifted off course into iranian territorial islands in the persian gulf. they say the crew, 9 men and one women are expected to be released back to the u.s. >> u.s. authorities have been in touch with iranian official who have confirmed that our sailors are safe and they've assured us that our sailors will be allowed to resume their journey. >> for more now we turn to live in tehran. good morning. >> reporter: that's right. very powerful revolutionary guard concerned that they've detained 10 u.s. sailors that they took in the persian gulf. their initial reports was they were snooping around in the tehran territorial waters and acting spishlyuspicioussuspiciously.
investigation they found that it had sailed navigation systems and drifted into iranian territorial waters and their purposes were not espionage or other harmful means and they're waiting orders from above and hopefully will be released shortly is what the statement said a few moments ago. he also went on to say that secretary carekerry had said that they demanded an apology, apparently an apology had been made so, we are waiting their imminent release. >> thank you. now to some lighter news. the jackpot for tonight's powerball drawing has reached a staggering $1.5 billion. and lotto officials sails to accelerate as the drawing gets
are 1 in 292.2 million, how can you not play with a prize of that size? nbc's jay gray joins us outside chicago. did you get the tickets yet or are you laughing at the rest of us and our absurd chances? >> reporter: i got the ticket but it's a little different than the rest of you, i have the winning ticket. throughout the day today, people will be packing shops like this one and they're also going to get a chance at more than a billion dollars. there has never been this much power in powerball. >> this is $1.5 billion. >> reporter: the largest jackpot ever. >> this is historical. this is something you can't wrap your brain around. >> reporter: but lines do wrap around gas stations and shops across the country right now. >> crazy.
the border in the six states that don't play the game. >> we had a phone call that someone was going to bring up three charter buss to buy lottery tickets from us. >> education. open up another business. >> reporter: and they're as plentiful as the number of people scrambling to get it. sglb >> college, for one. >>acy fantasy is what you could do with it. >> hopefully once i get my numbers -- >> i click my heels together three times. >> i been having dreams about stuff like this. >> reporter: dreams shared by millions hoping they have the six numberess that will make them all come true. yeah, and let's talk a little
one in more than 292 billion. you had a better chance of being struck by lightning, being krupshed crushed by an asteroid and even being canonized by the pope. so, what i'm telling you, shannon, is we still have a chance. >> and what is his last report if he has the winning ticket. el chapo guzman is being held in isolation and not being held on the ground floor and being moved randomly and without warning. this is the same prison he escaped from last july through a mile long underground tunnel. more than a dozen police officers are on guard at the exit of that tunnel and mexican officials say there are plans to cover it up.
