7:05 am
>> it will be months before everyone who wants a vaccine will be able to get one. >> reporter: and the biden administration now hoping to expand access by changing the rules on who can administer vaccines, calling on recently retired doctors and nurses and allowing people licensed in one state to cross state lines and pitch in. now, today, president biden is expected to sign another round of executive actions, this time on health care including one that expands access to the affordable care act during this pandemic, and this would open a new three-month enrollment period for people. another reverses a ban to international nonprofits that offer abortion services. we have seen a flurry of executive actions since the president took office, 40 so far. >> cecilia vega, thank you very much. george will be speaking with dr. anthony fauci live in our next half hour with the very latest on the vaccines and a lot more. >> always full of important information. we turn to that stark new warning from the department of homeland security. growing threats of violence from
7:06 am
homegrown extremists in the wake of the capitol siege. it's the first national terrorism advisory from the dhs in a year. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington with the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: george, good morning. alarmed by that violent insurrection at the capitol and a steady stream of new intelligence, some authorities fear that the threat of domestic terrorism right now is as high as it's been in recent memory. this morning, the nation on alert. homeland security issuing a rare urgent bulletin warning the public and police that the threat from domestic terror is high. according to the new bulletin right wing militants and lone wolves may target elected officials and government facilities and may be emboldened by the january 6th breach of the u.s. capitol. >> they are out there. they're angry. they're disenfranchised. they're upset that president trump lost. >> reporter: in a sign this threat is real, the fbi announcing charges against ian rogers, after authorities say they discovered an arsenal of 49 firearms and five fully functional pipe bombs after
7:07 am
searching his home and business. the fbi claims rogers was angry because president trump lost and was preparing for an attack allegedly texting, i want to blow up a democrat building bad. i hope 45, president trump, goes to war. if he doesn't, i will. an attorney for rogers says nothing indicates that he was actually planning an attack, but according to an fbi affidavit authorities fear that rogers of napa may have had his sights on the california governor's office after recovering threatening text messages on his phone. law enforcement on edge across the country as the fbi races to arrest all those who staged the insurrection on capitol hill. the massive scale of the probe becoming clearer. 400 suspects identified. hundreds more under investigation. and in a startling conspiracy indictment released last night justice department prosecutors claim that some militia members are planning a response to trump's loss as early as
7:08 am
november, and suggested a team as large as 40 members coordinated during the attack on the capitol. we are told decision charges may be coming, robin. >> all right, pierre. thank you. now to a david versus goliath showdown. amateur day traders at home on inexpensive apps taking down giant wall street hedge funds to the tune of billions of dollars. it is making the market crazy driving up the price of a stock of a company you wouldn't expect and making some people a lot of money. bottom line, it's a wild ride and rebecca jarvis is here to break it all down. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it is wild. and we've seen lately all of these examples of stories where people express an idea on the internet. social media changing human behavior. that is what happened on this story. after a stock tip on a website followed primarily by millennial and gen z men, and it ended up moving billions of dollars in stocks. this morning the financial world in a frenzy. >> let's get to gamestop.
7:09 am

7:10 am
the price goes down, then you can buy it back at that lower price, and pocket that difference. but if you're wrong and the shares go up, then you're going to have to buy back the stock at that higher price and that difference is a loss for you. that's painful. >> reporter: as it turns out, the wall street titans were wrong. very wrong. 19-year-old j.p. hurtado and others started buying, sending gamestop soaring. >> when people see something going up, they'll have a fear of missing out. because more and more people keep popping in the price keeps going up. >> reporter: j.p., a student at the university of chicago, who never traded a single stock until a year ago, bought about $8,000 of gamestop using the app robin hood and says by the close of wednesday it was worth $82,000. with amateurs like him profiting, hedge fund titans have lost an estimated $5 billion. >> this is uncharted territory and it's a very interesting question as to what happens next. certainly there's no mechanism
7:11 am
to make it stop immediately. >> reporter: and that is a big question now facing regulators. the s.e.c., for example, says it is monitoring the situation and the volatility. and the robin hood app, this place where young men are going to trade shares of companies like gamestop just this morning announcing they will no longer allow individuals to buy shares in gamestop. the only thing you can do is sell them. robin? >> rebecca, we were talking about this on the show yesterday. there are a lot of risks here with these people who are new to investing. they could lose a lot of money. >> reporter: we are setting up for a long conversation about what's happened here and how we move forward as a country around phenomenon like this. the bottom line for vest investors you have to remember trading individual stocks is
7:12 am
risky. it's like walking into a robin? >> thank you as always, rebecca. amy? well, robin, turning to that wild weather across the country. dangerous mudslides and flash flooding slamming california and even avalanche danger threatening the west. will carr is in santa cruz, california, with the latest on all of that. good morning, will. >> reporter: good morning. after a record-setting wildfire season, californians have been hoping for rain but this has brought so much so quickly. it's like twisting on a shower head on full blast. you can see it brought all this mud with it. this is an evacuated area. a lot of residents decided to stay and fight. you can see they were working overnight fortifying properties with sandbags. the real concern is not just the mud but everything that comes with it including rocks, boulders like this, and trees that could come flowing down and damage their properties. overnight that atmospheric river flowing around the west coast. >> you can see that.
7:13 am
>> reporter: bringing flooding to parts of california washing mud from fresh burn scars downhill. sliding sludge into nearly two dozen homes, injuring at least one person. >> we were going out of the house and she broke her arm as we were going out the front door. >> reporter: the rain relentless. some parts of northern california will get up to 10 inches by the end of the day. rain has been pounding this area and you can see that it is turning this into a river of mud and crews right now are doing everything they can. they're clearing out this street to protect all of the homes. how dangerous of a situation is this right now? >> it's one of those where we're preparing for the worst. >> reporter: california's mountains blanketed with blizzard conditions. these tractor trailers using a police escort to slowly creep off the interstate and that u.p.s. truck stuck towed back on the road. this pickup barreling down a snow-covered road losing control, slamming into that red truck, and then another.
7:14 am
in the east -- >> got a tornado warning. >> reporter: -- a tornado touching down in tallahassee. children and their teachers seen ducking taking shelter in a school hallway. the damaging winds flipping this plane and temporarily closing the airport. millions of californians could see flash flooding today and we could also get up to seven more inches of rain by the time this is all over. george? >> will, thanks very much. we turn now to an armed hostage standoff at a pediatrician's office in texas that ended in tragedy. the gunman with terminal cancer killed a doctor, mother of three before turning the gun on himself. marcus moore has the story. >> reporter: this morning, a city grieving as investigators try to figure out what led to a hostage standoff and murder/suicide. tuesday afternoon austin, texas police officers responded to reports that a man now identified as dr. bharat narumanchi was holding five workers hostage at a pediatric doctor's office. >> there were no patients or children that were at the building when the suspect
7:15 am
arrived on scene. >> reporter: police say narumanchi had multiple guns when he walked into the building. >> he displayed a gun and told the hostages to tie themselves up. some of the hostages were able to escape and some of them were ultimately released. >> the doctor is still inside. >> reporter: the last hostage, 43-year-old dr. katherine dodson a mother of three could not escape. for hours negotiators tried to speak with narumanchi but when s.w.a.t. entered that building both doctors were found dead. >> our hearts are just in a place that we can't even describe how sad we are. >> reporter: overnight members of the community reflecting on dr. dodson's impact. >> as a physician you're ready to sacrifice your life and your time and your children. that's exactly what she did. she's a true hero. >> reporter: the dodson family sharing a statement saying, as a dedicated mom, wife, daughter, friend and pediatrician she radiated light, love and joy in everything she did and everyone she touched. authorities say the 43-year-old suspect also a pediatrician had

7:32 am
of vermont. >> okay, amy, thanks. we welcome back president biden's chief medical adviser dr. anthony fauci. dr. fauci, thanks for coming back this morning, and let's start off with the situation we're facing right now. we're seeing some cases coming down across the country. we're seeing hospitalizations come down across the country, yet we also have that prediction from the task force yesterday, 90,000 deaths in the next month. how would you describe what we're facing right now? >> well, it's still a very serious situation, george, as the president had said and as we have said in the coronavirus medical team that if you look throughout the country the dynamics of the outbreak are a little bit unstable even though for the most part we're seeing general trends -- seven-day trends of cases going down, and ultimately hopefully hospitalizations and deaths. you have situations like the outbreak in california with the new variant there causing a lot of trouble. the threat of seeing now other variants that are, you know, at least from what we're hearing from our uk colleagues that increases the degree of transmissibility significantly.
7:33 am
maybe a little bit increase in lethality, but that variant, the uk variant it's called 117. it's a lineage, a different type of mutant, but it's here in the united states, and it spreads more. the vaccine that we have looks like it would be able to cover that, which is another reason why even though the message is sober about the fact that we're going to be seeing more cases and deaths in the future, the other message is now is the time to double down and when the vaccine becomes available go get your vaccine because that's going to be very important. >> the problem is it's not available everywhere right now. we saw president biden the other day say he was having a goal of 1.5 million a day. it appeared that members of the task force were backtracking from that yesterday. what can we expect in the coming weeks and beyond? >> you know, what you can expect if things go well and i think they will, an escalation of the number of doses that will be available throughout various regions of the country. we now have contractual
7:34 am
arrangements with moderna and pfizer already to get 200 million doses each from each of those companies and most recently, we signed another contractual arrangement to get an additional 100 million doses in addition to the original 200 from each of these. so as the months go by, george, as we get into february, march and april, we're going to see an escalation of availability of doses that we may not have had a week or two or three ago. >> are we moving fast enough to outrace the variants? you mentioned the uk variant and you also have this one from south africa. >> well, the one in south africa, george, troubles me and the reason it troubles me, even though this is something that is now really dominating the south africa scene, when you look at the vaccines that we have available now, the neutralizing antibodies that they induce -- so we're talking about things just in test tube, when you measure that against the south
7:35 am
african isolate, it is diminished by multi-fold in its ability to cover it. it's still within the range of what you would predict to be protective, but i take no great comfort in that. i think -- and we're doing it and that's one of the things i wanted to mention this morning, george. we're going ahead already now and trying to stay a step or two ahead of things by making vaccines along the same type that we made for the ones we're giving now, but having it be directed specifically against the isolate in south africa. so if it's necessary -- it may not be necessary. but if it is, we'll already be on the road to being able to give people a boost that directs against the south african isolate. that's what we're doing right now. so we're just -- we're not taking any chances. >> good on that. we're seeing this real controversy now about schools opening up. we know president biden's goal to have all elementary schools open in the first 100 days, but
7:36 am
you're seeing strong feelings across the country. teachers in chicago didn't want to go back to work this week until they were vaccinated. the union is threatening to strike. what does the science say about where things stand right now? >> well, it's very clear that right now in a situation when you look at the community penetrants of a virus and how it's spreading in the schools, interestingly when you give the schools the protection and resources they need to be able to have masking, to get the teachers to be able to have the resources they need to do some physical separation, the infection transmission in school appears to be less than that of the community. so if you have a situation where you have a dynamic of a viral spread in a community, it's less likely that the children that are in school if we do things right it's less likely they'll get infected. so the science tells us there's something leaning towards all the things that we need to do, obviously we want to get the teachers vaccinated.
7:37 am
we want to make sure they have the resources to do it correctly. but when you look at the history of how this virus is moving in schools, it seems to be less spreading there than it is in the community. >> dr. fauci, thanks again for your time and information this morning. robin? >> always appreciate him joining us, george. you're right about that. turning now to that scare on the slopes. caught on camera, onlookers shouting when a bear was seen barreling downhill after a skier. that man lucky to escape thanks to some quick thinking. james longman joins us with more from some of the eyewitnesses. good morning, james. >> reporter: yeah, good morning, robin. this really was a terrifying moment. most of us can only dream of enjoying the slopes right now, but for one man in romania, that dream turned into a nightmare. take a look at this terrifying moment on a snowy slope. a skier chased by a brown bear. witnesses shocked. some trying to distract it by screaming and whistling. the man is chased and eventually throws his backpack to the ground.
7:38 am
authorities say that move probably saved his life because it distracted the charging bear long enough for him to escape. >> he did a pretty cool move which is a really safe one when you want to get away from a bear. he dropped his bag off. >> reporter: this morning we're hearing from eyewitnesses about those terrifying moments. >> some people were a bit like just a little bit shaking. >> reporter: daniel janay and angel somicu sharing this video of the same animal an hour earlier. officials say there were multiple bear sightings at the romanian ski resort. >> ski patrol stopped us. he was at the bottom of the slope and told us there is a bear right there. and all the people that were down there threw their skis and run on the slope. >> reporter: they tell us the skiers' quick thinking was what saved his life. >> he reaches the end of the slope and drops his bag, takes his keys off and then he starts
7:39 am
running and the skier just leaves safely and continually afterwards the authorities coming. >> reporter: he really is lucky to be alive. the takeaway message here, if you get chased by a bear, distract as much as you can, and you may stand a chance. guys? >> keep that in mind if that ever happens. thank you, james. >> wow. coming up next on "gma," lindsay lohan's personal message to a young woman about coming out is going viral. now the star is asking her to take it down. what the college student is saying this morning. they're out there. look to the families. the communities. every small town, city and schoolyard. and know that they will endure. because in this country, we build with something stronger than brick or steel. we build with each other. ♪ ♪ alright, i brought in ensure max protein

8:28 am

8:31 am
in the eye, you know. [ laughter ] robin, i'm still like trying to live up to the standard that she set. [ laughter ] >> i think you've done just fine, my friend. just fine. >> no, but the fact of the matter was, i was number two on that list. robin was number one but i made some calls and got things changed around. >> that's why you're just known by one name, denzel. >> you're known by one name now, robin, robin. >> i want to say two name, john david, your son. he agrees with that title that you have and he is following in your footsteps. i know how proud you are of him and having this family support, what does it mean to you? >> i'm a dad so i'll keep saying it. olivia washington is a great young actress, very, very, very
8:32 am
good young actress so she's coming for her brother. i mean it's a team sport now. my wife was a child prodigy, concert pianist, competitor and singer and actress. my daughter is a producer, produced "malcolm & marie" and others. my baby boy malcolm is a director and a producer and who did i -- did i leave somebody out? and me. and me. i'm number one. in my house i'm number five. >> you remind me so much of my mother and father, because when people would try and praise me, they would list off all the other siblings that i have and rightfully so and talking about them. but i do have to go back to john david just for a moment because he's going to be here on "gma" on monday. >> okay. >> so is there something you've been meaning to ask him that you think we should? i mean, come on now?
8:33 am
he'll have to answer. >> nowaday, yes, loan me some money. [ laughter ] could you loan me some money? he's doing -- he's doing well. he's doing well. >> just like his father. let's talk about your new movie, "the little things." it's about two cops investigating a series of murders. you star alongside and jared leto. you said it was a pleasure and enjoyed watching the two of them work together. how so? >> well, you know, a lot of the scenes are when the big scenes where rami is interviewing jared so i was sitting, you know, behind the glass and they're in there with the cameras and everything and a lot of times over my shoulder or whatever so i just got to watch them work and got to watch their process and what do you call that, so they couldn't see me so i was watching how they work and it was like watching two young pit bulls go at it.
8:34 am
so it was fun. >> you just set up this scene perfectly because i believe we have that very scene for everyone to get a sneak peek of. >> is it the part where i start feeling like it's a trap? >> find out. >> it's not a pair of mittens. oh. >> go on, take a look. you know you want to. >> wow. >> you know rami was here yesterday and told us about the first time you met back in 2019 and locked eyes and said even back then you had him in mind for this role? >> that i had him in mind? >> yeah. >> i don't remember. [ laughter ] i'm not the first to say this, bette davis was the first to say
8:35 am
it. getting old is not for sissies. [ laughter ] so i don't remember. i'm sure it happened but i don't remember. >> you sound like a senator. i have no recollection. >> i have no recollection, yeah, right. >> but do you -- >> yeah. >> do you recall that the script was first written in 1993? it's taken this long so why do you think now is the right time? >> well, i mean i don't know the process that john lee went through and it just came across my desk and i thought it was fascinating. it was a unique time before the information age explosion, you know, so, you know, we can't get time back in a bottle but that was before people were followed and, you know, tweeted and whatever else they -- y'all do now. >> well, denzel, bottom line,
8:36 am
tell us why we should watch this film. >> it's fascinating and unique. it's not the normal big blowup action, you know. it has -- i won't say deliberate pace but has its own pace and draws you in. so if you're just looking for explosions and all that it has some of that too but it's really not that kind of a movie. a bit more noir, if you will. >> noir. cannot wait. >> cannot wait to see it. >> i just learned that word this morning. [ laughter ] >> very impressive. >> denzel, we can't wait to see "the little things" hitting hbo max and select theaters tomorrow. big bargains on winter skin

8:48 am
>> good morning. i am making -- so excited to be mere. zucchini pasta with tons of parsley and finished with lime and parmesan cheese and take the leftovers and make basically a spaghetti and meatball soup which in mexico we call it -- [ speaking foreign language ] so really comforting and really easy. now, in terms of the ingredients i love this because a lot of this stuff you get from the grocery store but most you already have at home. you have onions, carrots, zucchini, some serrano peppers, you can always go for jalapenos. you need tomatoes, a little parmesan cheese and add lemon to everything at the end to cut the fat. now in terms of your pantry items so important because that's where you boost up all of the flavors you have bay leaves, cumin, oregano, mexican oregano, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
8:49 am
that's pretty much it. >> how do you make the meatballs look so easy when you make them. >> so easy, my partner is i don't like meatballs. they're too heavy. what i like to do i make them super simple. i've got them already on the burner and all i added to those meatballs was salt, pepper and a little seasoning, a little bit of soy sauce is always important because you're going to get thaa flavor. i take them out and do my zucchini. as you can see it's so beautiful and packed with garlic. and then i throw everything together. so important to save the pasta water which i have right here. that's going to -- you want that starchiness from the pass to tikrit your sauce so you add everything together. you want to make sure the meatballs are obviously fully cooked before you throw them into the pasta. so give them a nice stir. so once you've got that, that's
8:50 am
pretty much basically it. i have my noodles already cooked. using spaghetti because they go great with soup but any pasta you have at home will work, penne, rigatoni. angel hair might be tougher to cult but you can definitely use that as well. all you have to do -- add that in here. and toss that around. and then always finish with a little bit of fresh parsley. we're throwing that in there. and then we'll plate it. >> the soup has a great kick to it. i had to confess earlier not knowing what yot rock s educate me on mexican oregano. >> mexican oregano. it's a slight difference, mediterranean and mexican oregano and mexican -- mediterranean is a little sweeter and mexican is a little more savory. so it's not going to make or
8:51 am
break your dish. if i was like feeding it to my mom she would know. she's in heaven now. >> ah. >> i can still hear her. she would not let me use mediterranean oregano for any of my dishes. if you have regular at home that would work. >> tell us more about the soup. it is really good. >> so for the soup, really simple. all we're doing is starting with the base of tomatoes, carrots and onions and sauteing that together and that's what like the wonderful french like to call the mir poi. super simple packed with flavorment all i did and i have that going on here, i sauteed my onions and tomato and added broth, chicken or vegetable broth and just water if you don't have any broth. really important to add that soy sauce. now to this basically we're going to add our leftovers. show you the trick. my beautiful meatball dish nice
8:52 am
and finished. finished with parmesan cheese. >> so good. >> if you happen to have leftovers which i think would be weird and would never happen in my house, what you do is you take that beautiful broth you have created and like i said we have tomatoes here, carrots packed with vegetables so all we're going to do is we're literally, wait for this to cool down but i'll grab it. grab whatever leftover pasta you have. and we're going to chop this up. >> great idea. >> and just add it into your soup. definitely takes some of those meatballs, if you have any left over, at my dinner table the kids won't even like eat the pasta. they'll just grab the meatballs and eat them with their hands. >> chef marcela, before we go, did you meet our challenge? is it all under $20? let's take a look. the grand total is, wow, $18.78.
8:53 am
