3:00 pm
quite a bit in upcoming days. mark preston, i will start there at the capital. information on behind the scenes talks, going on at the capital, who is talking today and is there really any progress to report? >> we saw a little bit of movement between the senate majority leader harry reid and mitch mcconnell did speak by telephone. they talk about how they get out of the situation they are in right now. two different things they have to address. one is funding the government and passing a resolution that would allow money to flow into the federal government put workers back into their jobs. in addition to that and perhaps more pressing, is the debt ceiling is increasing the debt ceiling. we're told by the u.s. debt treasury, that united states would have a default. this is what harry reid had to say about his conversation with mitch mcconnell. >> i add productive conversation with republican leader this afternoon. our discussions were
3:01 pm
substantive. and we will continue those discussions. and a positive conclusion for issues before this country today. >> don, let me be perhaps negative there. speaking to a source familiar with these discussions, they said don expect anything substantive to happen tonight. the conversations will probably pick up in earnest tomorrow. well see marcus opening up around the world overnight and of course the u.s. market will open up around 9:00 tomorrow morning. but in addition to that, don, what is more telling is that the republican leader mitch mcconnell was not actually in the building today. he was close by. he does live here in washington, d.c. but he was never here in the building. hence that's why we had the conversation by telephone with harry reid. >> let's continue to look forward here. are they going to wait until the very last minute to reach a deal? remember the last time, right?
3:02 pm
>> that is a concern. we will see more from new york and see wall street weigh in, in earnest tomorrow. we will realize overnight that no deal was able to make any progress. nothing done. but i've got to tell you, in coming days, there's a lot of effort, at least put forth, we expect in the senate it get something done. if that doesn't appear to be moving though, look for the house of representatives, look for the republican leadership, which is not part of the conversation right now, perhaps to send over another measure to increase the debt limit. even if it is for a short period of time. by doing so, they protect themselves politically. they are involved in the conversation but also in the conversation and at this point they are not. don? >> all right, stand by, there, mark preston. jim, senator -- first of all, though, there was a conversation between the president and nancy pelosi today. you want to tell us about that? >> right. the white house is confirming that the president did speak with house minority leader nancy
3:03 pm
pelosi by phone. they basically said that president reiterated his position. he is not interested in anything other than debt ceiling increase that is clean with no strings attached. same for a measure that reopens the government. why would they read that out? not because they want us to know what obama and pelosi talked about, they wanted to send a signal to the rest of washington. they believe democrats believe that they have the upper hand in this. polls show that republicans are at historic rock bottom lows wh te comes to approval ratings and they feel like they can drive negotiations here. so the president has said, he will talk about the larger issues like the budget, like health care, but wants it done after the debt limit is increased. and to pick up on what mark preston was talking about a few moments ago, about what harry reid and mitch mcconnell are talking about, we are reaching a critical stage. remember the last time during
3:04 pm
s the debt ceiling talks and yet the nation's credit rating was downgraded. so they are concerned here at the white house that this is getting too close to call, don. >> i wonder if the republicans will take the nation's, you know, credit rating down with them. because jim, you have heard the term self awareness, right? self awareness. you said that the president thinks, and democratic leaders think that they have the upper hand. that, you know, especially with the republican party. the polls have shown just how badly republicans are fairing with this. everyone sees that except for republicans. what the heck is going on here? >> well, a lot of republicans do see it, don. you have heard john mccain on one of the talk shows this morning saying that strategy and ted cruz and other republicans have adopt said to change obama care through the debt ceiling impasse did not work. one thing we heard from john mccain today is that some republicans are starting to feel frustrated with democrats. earlier today, republicans were
3:05 pm
campaigning that harry reid was seeking changes to the sequester as part of the debt ceiling government shut down negotiation. john mccain and others are saying that that is starting to sound like a little bit too much like touchdown, you know, dancing in the end zone after a touchdown, that perhaps the democrats need to show some mag any nimity here, mag no nimity here, book off with what needs to be done and they can deal with the touchier subjects like the sequester budget later. >> jim, there is so much to get through this hour. you will be standing by for us. but i really want to know about the protests today. did you witness them? they happened at the white house. what's going on? >> we are standing here at the white house, don, watching the developments unfold with debt talks and all of a sudden people are talking about the world war ii memorial protesters moving from the national mall to the white house. so we went outside the white house gates, fence to the north lawn here, and just to show you this video, it is pretty dramatic. many protesters, a billing
3:06 pm
veteran's march in washington, as you know today, don, they are there protesting the fact that that memorial is shut down while the government has been closed. they were over there at the memorial with ted cruz, sarah palin, mike lee. they are not satisfied to have the protest there. they picked up barricades and carried them to the white house and dumped them in a pile in front of the fence to the north lawn of the white house. almost to the point where conceivably someone could have climbed up the pile of barricades and entered the white house grounds. obviously all of that caught the attention of u.s. park police. they came out on horse back. some in riot gear. there is even an armored vehicle that arrived at one point, don. there were protesters who were obviously supporters of the veteran's cause of seeing memorials and fringe groups gloming on to this protest. one man waving a confederate flag. other folks holding up "impeach obama" signs. it was an intense scene until the park police were able to
3:07 pm
settle things down. out on pennsylvania vaf avenue, in front of the white house, everything is back to normal. everything is calm. but it was tense for about 30 minutes there. >> someone was saying, take your hand off the koran and put your hand up. >> it is getting embarrassing. thank you. >> something deeper than the typical cross-body bickering. >> this is not only a debate between the republicans and democrats but an internal family feud. even a civil war some say within the republican party. speaker boehner's position all along is that he did not want to shut down the government but once the government was shut down, his position was, let's do this in one deal. let's deal with this in one bill. why? one tough vote for members. two, republicans thought they would have leverage over the president who in the past negotiated on the debt ceiling issue. however, the president at the
3:08 pm
moment believes he has the upper hand. he says i'm willing to ne gloeshate but only after you reopen the government. only after you raise the debt ceiling. they can nod and sequence and put that together in a package. the problem is, there's so little trust, even within the republican party, tea party leadership, once again washington will dance up it a deadline and we will watch the financial markets. >> that is john king. if anything is going to get washington's attention, it could be what happens on wall street tomorrow morning at 9:30. allison kosik is in new york. allis allison, what is the market expected to do tomorrow? >> you will see the market react it anything coming out of washington. you will see wall street react to the rhetoric out of washington. if there is no indication there's a deal in place, you will see a sharp turn to the down side. now this is after a lot of optimism running through wall street. from wednesday to friday. you saw the dow make up all of
3:09 pm
its losses that it had since the government shut down and back on october 1st. you can quickly see those gains turn into losses and then some. if the market perceives there isn't a deal on the table. this is serious because although many believe that lawmakers are not that -- they are not going to let the debt ceiling deadline come and go without some sort of solution, there is preparation being made. at least in the mind-set. because if this happens, you can see interest rates skyrocket. you can see stocks tank. the higher interest rates would affect consumers because they certainly feel it in their wallets. they feel it in their monthly mortgage payments and car loans. don? >> are investors really worried about this or are they sitting tight to see what happens? >> i think they are just sitting tight. the markets believe that some sort of solution will happen. but it is the uncertainty that's there and possibility for down side that's there. and that's kind of keeping the
3:10 pm
market on its toes. there are some banks saying that the s&p 500 could sell off as much as 45% if the debt ceiling isn't raised and the government starts to miss some key payments. and one thing not to get lost in all this is consumer confidence. as consumers, americans are watching all this drama play out on wall street, in washington rather, you know, we are watching consumer confidence fall to its lowest levels since 2008. you have to remember, if the debt ceiling, if a solution doesn't happen, you will see the credit markets freeze up. that will scare consumers. make them pull back on spending. of course that creates a domino effect throughout the economy. don? >> this is ridiculous. i can't believe our government has gotten us here. and just certain members of our government. not all of them. not all of them. >> right. >> listen, can we look forward to the asian markets that will open up pretty soon? what can we expect? >> what i saw at last, the
3:11 pm
market opened about 10 minutes ago. i saw markets in the green. you saw how things go. that could quickly turn. the night is still young, don. >> all right. we'll be watching that. appreciate it, allison. and we want to bring you this. happening right now. police are in the middle after huge counterterrorism operation in london. officers have made four arrests and raids are taking place at six other locations across the city. the men were arrested on suspicion of planning or committing a terrorist act. we will get more to you on these arrests just as soon as we get it. so stand by. this is all developing in london right now. in the meantime, it seems congress has angered some people. people who don't anger easily. even the senate chaplin with senators right there, had something to say about this mess. you want to hear this. it's coming up. and by popular demand, my interview with the lawn more man. chris cox. he has been cleaning up around
3:12 pm
washington monuments because no one else was. [ banker ] sydney needed some financial guidance so she could take her dream to the next level. so we talked about her options. her valuable assets were staying. and selling her car wouldn't fly. we helped sydney manage her debt and prioritize her goals, so she could really turn up the volume on her dreams today... and tomorrow. so let's see what we can do about that... remodel. motorcycle.

3:14 pm
welcome back, everyone. in this week's default shutdown. from dallas, ben furgason. i want you two to look at the scuffle outside the white house. protesters demanding that d.c. memorials be reopened.
3:15 pm
they moved some barricades and confronted police outside the white house. it got a little rowdy. but settled down. lz, are people this upset as we head towards thursday's default deadline? >> i think it is a combination of things p.m. i'm not sure if you can look at this protesting with which is significant. i think the name of it was supposed to be the million veteran march. and it is a million veterans, obviously. i think you are seeing frustration by people funneld by the tea party. but we shouldn't dismiss it. i think the white house messed up. it should have made concessions beforehand it make sure this sort of optics wasn't there present for the drive home the point the tea party is trying to make about the silliness of it all. i wouldn't look at this video, this footage here and assume the entire nation is ready to burn down.
3:16 pm
>> ben, you have to be embarrassed looking at that video. you're not embarrassed for some members of your party? >> i don't think there are a lot of members of my party out there. there are people that do things i importantly wouldn't do. this is a small group -- >> you don't think that is members of your party? aren't you republican? >> you say people out there that had -- sir, there are people out there with signs that said i'm of no party and were saying liberate america. there are crazy nut jobs in that group. let's be candid about it. >> who initiated this protest? tea party republicans. come on, ben, cut the crap. don't give me that. >> okay, cut the crap? i love how you assume that everyone who is a conservative or tea partier would be out there today. if what what you are saying is true, why isn't there a million tea partiers out there? so i say to you cut the crap -- >> i did not say that all of the
3:17 pm
people out there were members of the tea party. i said, it was initiated by the tea party. >> you said members of your party. >> yes, there were members of your party. >> you've got a bunch of -- >> i need to hear him, stop talking to me. good ahead. >> there are very few members of the tea party that -- >> okay, let's just say there are very few. so for the very few members of the tea party out there, you are not embarrassed by that? and second of all, it is misplaced emotion. because the person in the white house did not shut the government down. the republican party, tea party members shut the government down. if they should be putting barricades up, maybe they should do it in front of the capitol. >> don, don, don. you have people on record that work for the park services that were told to make the shutdown
3:18 pm
as painful as possible. >> ben, unless you are going to stick to what i said, don't take this and turn it into something else. stick to the question and tolt subject -- hang on, ben. i'm talking here. then you can finish. stick to what i said. don't go on talking about something else. that's what is happening in washington. that is what what has been happening the whole time. first it was health care. now over the budget. now over this. >> okay, are you finished? >> find one particular thing and stick to that point. let's get back to the point. are you embarrassed for the members -- hang on. let me finish. you are embarrassed for the members of the tea party who are out there on this display? >> i would not have been out there taking up the barricades. i also understand why they were there picking up the barricades. you spent more money blocking the memorials than you did protecting them while they are open. you are smart enough guy to know when you send seven guards to
3:19 pm
barricade a memorial that were never there when it was open, that is doing that on purpose. you know that. i know that. and they were mad about it. and i can understand why they were mad about it. >> sounds like you are making excuses. we will continue this on the other side of the break. we'll be right back. it's a growing trend in business: do more with less with less energy. hp is helping ups do just that. soon, the world's most intelligent servers, designed by hp, will give ups over twice the performance, using forty percent less energy. multiply that across over a thousand locations, and they'll provide the same benefit to the environment as over 60,000 trees. that's a trend we can all get behind. make my mark i wawith pride.ork. create moments of value. build character through quality. and earn the right to be called a classic. the lands' end no iron dress shirt. starting at 49 dollars.
3:20 pm
nthat's why they deserve... aer anbrake dance. get 50% off new brake pads and shoes.
3:21 pm
3:22 pm
so we're back talking about the shutdown. lz, i promise i'll let you get in thp but it frustrates me so much when i hear so much rhetoric. we are talking about thursday's default deadline with two of our favorite commentators. lz and ben furgason. we are told the senate has taken the lead. trying to come up with a bipartisan solution to reopen the government and avoid a default. ben, let's get back to the protests though. i want you to listen to this. this is outside of the white house today and then we can talk about it.
3:23 pm
>> i call upon all of to you wage the second american nonviolent revolution. to use civil disobedience and demand this president leave town. to get up. to put the koran down. get up off his knees and to figurely come up with his hands out. up. >> ben, really? really? >> you found the krcrazy guy. congratulations. there are 360 million americans. and you find the crazy guy. of course i don't agree with that guy. did you actually think i would sit here as conservative and act as if in any way i agree with the ridiculousness of that guy saying barack obama should leave town. there are dumb, stupid people in the world. congratulations, you just confirmed it. but it is not the majority of
3:24 pm
american conservatives or republicans that believe what that crazy guy just said. >> the people this crazy guy, people like that crazy guy, ben, are the reason that people are furloughed. it is the reason why there's gridlock right now. the reason there is that we have a government shut down and so a small minority, small faction of the republican party people like that guy are holding a americans hostage. >> do you actually believe, because i'm going to name names, do you think that ted cruz thinks barack obama should take his hand off his koran? and you think ted cruz and others like him think that -- >> i think that you should have ted cruz answer that question. >> of course he doesn't. i have talked to ted cruz this week. >> comparing the president to satan the other day at the summit. so what is worse, saying he has his hand on the koran. there is nothing wrong with
3:25 pm
having his hand on the koran if he is muslim and it is much worse being compared to a saint and than a muslim. >> if i could interject one thing -- ben, you said enough. you said a lot already. i want to point out before we leave air here, that you know, it is important that american people, that the viewers remember, that ronald reagan, that the debt ceiling was raised 18 times. that's when poverty was at a high. people were dying of aide and the debt ceiling was raised 18 times. we didn't hear any of the rhetoric right now that you are hearing on the streets of washington. debt ceiling raised seven times under w. we still didn't see tea party members. >> that's different. >> i'm not done! we are hearing how this president is destroying the nation, driving the debting with doing all these things and he is asking for the debt ceiling to
3:26 pm
be raised for the fourth time since his presidency. fourth time. it was raised 18 times with the reagan administration -- i'm not done! >> i heard you the first time. >> let him finish, ben. >> i let you talk. i'm going to finish making my point. then can you go ahead and have the floor. what people must remember is that the tea party, there are members who are certainly kes d concerned about the growing debt, which is the reason why they originally came into power in 2010. but what we have seen time and time again is hypocrisy. hypocrisy loosely based on a multitude of factors including fear of religion, fear of race, fear of other, homophobia and other ills we worked hard to get rid of in this country. so ben, as you try to defend every element of your party, i urge to you get rid of the crazy people so we can be focused on
3:27 pm
the debt conversation. no. and not to be side tracked by other factors that continue to paint your party as the party -- >> okay, ben, you make a very good point. as i said in the beginning, aren't you embarrassed, this makes your party look bad. he is saying the same thing. >> let's go back to what he started with. which is raising the debt ceiling. this president never passed a budget as president of the united states, including when he had republicans in charge of the house and senate. the reason we are having problems with the debt ceiling now -- >> democrats -- >> let me finish. it because barack obama -- >> i'm helping you, actually. >> -- a secure government under his leadership with the -- the second issue is this. let me finish. the second issue is this. barack obama had the debt go up under his time in office more than all other presidents combined, including all those
3:28 pm
under reagan. more debt added to -- >> do you understand why that happened? >> that's a fact. >> you don't understand why that happened? oh, my god! >> of course you do. oh the worst financial economic crisis since the great depression happened before barack obama. >> you can't blame everything on that, sir. >> i agree with you. listen, the president -- >> you are. >> six years now, he has to take responsibility for the economy and help get us out. >> you just said he is not. >> it is not all of his fault. you can't just make a blanket statement like that. listen, i have to run. my producers are yelling at me. no, i don't have a budget. i live below my means so i don't have to have a budget. he is just a guy cleaning up around washington monument. so what senators can't take care of right now, brigs and stratton is. my interview with the lawn more man, chris cox, coming up next.
3:29 pm
>> in the hills up above los angeles, a down to earth journey goes on. >> good girl. >> everyday, leo grillo takes one more step down an unexpected trail. >> these dogs are all abandoned in the wilderness. i bring them here with the promise that it is never going to happen again. >> my promise to them is i'm keeping you safe. >> it started in 1979 in grillo an actor found an abandoned dog and took him in, naming him delta. then he found another dog and another and another. and 35 years later, delta rescue covers more than a hundred acres, landfilled with animals, every one of them found after being abandoned. >> we'll have anywhere between 850 to 900 dogs. cats about 650. horses about 50. a handful of goats. a pig.
3:30 pm
you never know. >> $8 million budget provides fuel, water, housing and full-time veterinary hospital. >> this cat here had bad teeth and i'm pulling bad molars. >> no animal is ever put up for adoption and in many ways grillo helped pioneer helped a no-kill idea center. >> they are here for life. hey, bentley. come here, it is okay. >> it is much bigger, more time consuming, more exhausting than leo grillo ever imagined. but when he looks out over this mountain top home he has given to thousands of unwanted animals, he knows they've given to him, too. >> i know i saved all their lives. they definitely changed mine. >> good girl. >> tom foreman, cnn. i'm beth... and i'm michelle. and we own the paper cottage.

of their type 2 diabetes with non-insulin victoza®. for a while, i took a pill to lower my blood sugar, but it didn't get me to my goal. so i asked my doctor about victoza®. he said victoza® is different than pills. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once-a-day, any time, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin.

if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans. so this washington redskins nickname debate just won't go away. so let's talk about it now with terrence moore, sports contributor to cnn.com and columnist for mlb.com. roger goodell seems to be evolving on this. in past he defended the name. but this week, goodell said, we need to listen carefully. listen and make sure we're doing what's right. and president obama even weighed in and told the ap that if he owned the team, he would think about changing the name. terrence, is it now a matter of time before the name, redskins, goes away? >> let's start with this. when you have the most powerful person on the world saying they should change the name, that's roger goodell -- no, actually, barack obama.
3:49 pm
and the second most powerful man on the face of the earth, commissioner of nfl perhaps and roger goodell saying he thinks they should consider it, it is going to get done. i tell you what, don. this is somewhat analogous to what you have been dealing with the last few weeks with the government shutdown where as daniel snyder who is the redskins owner, is like the house republicans. it is not a matter of if he will change the name, it is a matter of when it is going to happen and how it will happen. >> redskins owner told usa today, and he said you can use capital letters, will never change its name. you just said it is matter of when. you think he will eat his words? >> yeah. never is a very, very strong word. daniel snyder has taken a hard stance. like george wallace in front of the school door 50 years ago. this is a gentler stance. with you snyder said he could p
3:50 pm
upset and he can sympathize with them. you can see movement even with dan snyder. >> okay. redskins and dallas play later tonight. >> true. >> what could they change their name to that would make at least some fans happier? warriors, senators? >> you also have to think, what would please daniel snyder? and remember, all these guys and nfl owners, they have huge egos. i'm serious, when i say this, they should change the name and name them after daniel snyder. call them the snyders. for everyone laughing -- >> like me. >> -- in the national football league, you have cleveland browns and they were named after their original owner, paul brown. do it, call it a day, and everyone is happy. >> it is a tough one. if a certain group of people are offended by something then you should probably respect what
3:51 pm
they have to say. if native americans are offended then we should listen. >> that's exactly right. >> i've been asked this question before. how would you feel if it is black skins or brown skins? i'm not easily offended. that wouldn't offend me. i have brown skin and in the summer i have black skin. that wouldn't offend me. but redskins might offend native americans. so we should be mindful. >> sure. >> let's talk about the tale of the two mannings. peyton, his broncos are undefeated. but his younger brother, eli, so far it is a disaster. eli's giants team, off to the worst start since 1976. he has thrown 15 interceptions. is he having little brother syndrome? or his confidence? he loses and his confidence gets worse and worse? or is he just not as good a quarterback as we thought? >> don, all of the above. maybe a little less of the last point. remember, this guy has been around the national football
3:52 pm
league for a deg decade. you have never seen him so loud with emotion on the field or with press conferences. and he is now. he has always thrown a lot of interceptions. he led the league in receptions twice. the difference is, he has a record pace right now. record for interceptions in pro football is 42. in 1962 by a guy named george. this guy has exactly the same amount of interceptions that george blanda had. that's enough to make your head explode. >> thank you, mr. moore. terrence mo. as we say, terrence mo. >> thank you. >> i appreciate it. our five questions for the week ahead, next.
