hoping to rebrand the gop. also the cost of raising a kid, the price is on the rise. we'll break down the new data for you, and then mayor bob filner is the focus of a new parody video and you're going to want to hear the lyrics to this one. this is "way too early." hey everybody, good morning, i'm thomas roberts in for brian shactman. it is thursday august 15th. we start off with the big news out of egypt, the interim prime minister says the government had no choice but to step in against a group of pro-morsi supporters, a group that sparked a day of widespread bloodshed. 40 members of the security fors have been killed and 4,000 injured.
ayman mohyeldin joins us. >> reporter: good morning. yesterday's operations the scope of which are still been felt, according to some eyewitnesses at some of the mosques near where the clearing operations unfolded there are still about 200 bodies that are unaccounted for or unidentified. that death toll you were talking about still expected to rise in the coming hour. the scope of the operations lasted for about 11 hours and it really has thrown a major upheaval across the country. already the muslim brotherhood is striking a tone of defiance, saying they will not cower to the egyptian military and more importantly they are calling for protests to resume today. as we were mentioning the curfew that was imposed late last night has been lifted and one of the major points of the country now being declared in a state of emergency and emergency law being effectively put back in place is that protests are banned, which means that if these marches are expected to
take place today you can expect perhaps a very strong-handed or even stronger one than we saw yesterday from the police against these demonstrators backing the muslim brotherhood. the country's political leadership is also in crisis. they are trying to spin this in their favor saying they had to do it in self-defense. they cited the fact that 43 police officers were killed in yesterday's attack and they say they were simply fighting a terrorist and national security threat but the muslim brotherhood says it is a bloody massacre, that is how things are shaping up in cairo. >> as we saw yesterday the white house strongly condemning the actions by the egyptian government. secretary of state john kerry said the events were deplorable. what type of action can we expect from washington, at least anything that's going to get through? >> reporter: there's going to be a lot of international condemnation. the turkish government wants to raise this issue at the united nations security council. it's also calling on the league of arab states in cairo to address the situation, so it is
going to really be interesting to see what happens from washington as to whether or not they back these international efforts to condemn, perhaps even punish egypt. lot of diplomats, ambassadors are being called in their capitals to discuss the ongoing situation so there is some rebuke happening to the egyptian government as we are seeing in the past 24 hours. thomas? >> nbc's ayman mohyeldin reporting from cairo. we should know by tomorrow whether the republican party will boycott debates during the 2016 presidential debates. reince priebus says it amounts to a little more than campaign advertising. republicans are holding a three-day meeting in massachusetts to plot the future of the gop. according to newt gingrich the party needs to do more of what it supports rather than what it rejects. >> i think part of the era in obama's disaster we have to get
beyond being anti-obama and convince people you can have hope in america, that we can have a better future. >> priebus urged members to abandon titles like conservative and libertarian and instead focus on being a republican and alluded to the 47% for mitt romney's failed run for the white house. >> we're the party of freedom and opportunity and not the other side. we don't tell anyone. you wouldn't know it because we don't talk about it. promoting the brand, unlimited opportunity for everyone in america, not the 47, but the 100%. private bradley man something expressing regret for handing over government secrets to wikileaks. during the sentence part of his court-martial said he was sorry and apologized for the unintended consequences of the few leaks. he says the past few years have been a "learning experience." manning took the stand as part
of the defense strategy to get the judge to reduce his sentence. he faces up to 90 years in prison for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents. one-time rising star jesse jackson jr., a democrat, he's now going to jail. he was sentenced to 30 months in prison for spending $750,000 of campaign cash on personal luxury items including fur coats, celebrity memorabilia, mounted elk heads and a rolex. jackson's wife sandy was sentenced to 12 months in prison for leaving out $580,000 of income when filing the couple's tax returns. after the sentencing jackson spoke to reporters. >> i still believe in the power of forgiveness. i believe in the power of redemption. today i manned up and tried to accept responsibility for the errors of my ways and i still believe in the resurrection. >> so because the jacksons have two young kids ages 9 and 13 the judge will allow them to serve their sentences one at a time. mr. jackson is going to start
first, then followed by his wife. a 26-member go team is in birmingham, alabama, to investigate the u.p.s. flight that crashed at the birmingham shuttlesworth airport. no one on the ground was hurt. the plane broke into two pieces and the cockpit section was about 200 yards from the initial impact point and while they have yet to recover the black boxes a spokesperson says is he optimistic they will be able to do that soon. it is more expensive than ever to cover the cost of a child. government report saying parents are paying 23% more than they did back in 1960, adjusted for inflation. the research says that more expensive housing as well as higher costs for health care and child care are the main factors. in 1960 a middle income husband and wife household spent about $25,000 to rear a child. that's about $196,000 in 2012.
and to rear that child today could be about $241,000. these numbers don't include the cost of sending that kid on to college. now to business, where later today we are going to get a look at the weekly jobless claims as well as some other economic key data. the fate of the fed stimulus program continues to impact the markets, all three indices were down yesterday with the dow falling more than 100 points. for more on today's business headlines we say good morning to jeff cutmore who is live in london. >> good morning, thomas. well, latest filings are through from some of the big institutional fund managers and what we see george soros doubling his position in apple just a day after we learned carl icahn tweeted he thinks this say big turnaround story. the attractive thing is the big cash pile they hope the company will start handing back to shareholders. moving you along we have charges filed in the jpmorgan story. this is about the $6 billion
trading blowup that happened in london. bruno ixel is the man at the center of that but he'll escape charges because he's helping the authorities, the two gentlemen have had charges against hem, javier arteio and julian grout, both are being accused by u.s. authorities of manipulating the books to hide the trading losses. so this is a story we're watching fairly closely at the moment. >> jeff, also let's talk about the type of changes we can expect in terms of television advertising for the once, the aca, at fordable care act that kicks in later this year, open enrollment beginning october the 1st. >> yes, i'm just amazed by this story because every time i come over to the states i cannot believe the amount of pharmaceutical and health related advertising that's on tv currently, but according to this, tv executives are licking
their lips again over potentially another $1 billion worth of health related advertising that could come as a result of some of these health care changes that you just mentioned there, and so at this point, it looks like not only may the cost of your health care change, but some of that cost is going to be, you know, built in from the additional spend on advertising going forward, about $1 billion, that some thing will hit the tv screens through advertising. thomas back to you. >> it's amazing when we think how it all adds up. jeff, thank you, sir, appreciate it. still ahead, trouble in new england where tom brady is hurt in practice. we're going to give you the results of his mri. also it could be the most extravagant barmitzvah dance of all-time, more on the video that is tearing up the internet. i love this kid. sammy horowitz, he's the best kid ever, and this brings us to our twitter question, what is the wildest party that you have ever been to? use #waytoorowdy, we'll put the

this mess will head up through florida and the southeast. it does not look like it has time to become like a hurricane or anything that's going to be devastating but it will bring us some heavy rains in the day ahead. we're already watching rain moving into south florida so from miami to naples, sarasota, ft. myers you have to deal with on and off rain probably the next three days in a row. we could see heavy rain in north florida, southern georgia and areas of mississippi and alabama, too, especially the southern portions near the gulf as much as six to ten inches of rain over the next couple of days. by far the southeast is a travel trouble spot in the northeast if you left the windows open last night you may have had to close them in the middle of the night. we're in the mid-50s in the city, 40s in some of the suburbs. feels like fall but it will be a beautiful afternoon, thomas, we showed you d.c. there, i mean, you do vacations in d.c. mid-august, you're prepared for like heat, humidity, gross. 80 and low humidity enjoy it. >> i grew up in baltimore so i know all about gross, i do. bill thanks so much. coming up at the top of the

♪ all right so at the top of the show we talked a little about how the cost of a middle class parent is going to be $241,000 currently to raise a child born in 2012. if you want to sound smart tell your friends parents with three or more kids are in luck because the number declines by 22% with each child. parents with only one child are likely to spend 25% more. that's because if you're like the younger kid like me, you get stuff handed down to you. so parents don't reinvest in new stuff. enough about the real news, we want to go to the water cooler and two of "the real housewives of new jersey" stars are pleading not guilty to a host of charges. teresa and joe giudice facing counts of committing mail and
