ROARING FLAMES INCINERATING EVERYTHING IN ITS PATH.
SAVAGE HURRICANE FORCE WINDS FANNING THE BLAZES.
25MILLION PEOPLE IN CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA UNDER EXTREME RED
FLAG FIRE WARNINGS. WE HAVE THE TERRIFYING
SCENARIO.>>Reporter: MORE THAN 25
MILLION PEOPLE IN CALIFORNIA AND ARIZONA FACE RED FLAG FIRE
WARNINGS TODAY. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IS
TRYING TO HIGHLIGHT THE DANGER BY CALLING IT AN EXTREME RED
FLAG WARNING.>>LAST TIME WE SAW CONDITIONS
LIKE THIS, HUNDREDS OF HOMES BURNED, ACRES WERE BURNED, AND
WILL LAND WAS CLEARED.>>ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS,
HURRICANE FORCE WINDS. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
SAYS WIND GUSTS COULD REACH 80 MILES PER HOUR, THE STRONGEST
WIND EVEN IN YEARS.>>WE ARE AT THE TIME OF YEAR
WE HAVEN’T SEEN ANY MOISTURE IN OUR FUEL BEDS FOR AN EXTENDED.
OF TIME. THE FIELDS ARE CRITICALLY DRY.
THEY ARE RECEPTIVE TO NEW FIRE AS WELL AS FIRE SPREAD.
>>THIS FOOTAGE SHOWS THE MOMENT THE BLAZE BROKE OUT
ALONG THE 405 FREEWAY. INVESTIGATORS SAY THAT HIGH
WINDS BROKE OFF A TREE BRANCH AND IT LANDED ON POWERLINES
IGNITING NEARBY BRUSH. MORE THAN 9000 PEOPLE IN
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ARE STILL UNDER EVACUATION ORDERS.
LOCAL CHURCHES ARE SENDING PEOPLE TO THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD
EVACUATION CENTERS TO HELP AND PROVIDE ENCOURAGEMENT.
>>THOSE EVACUATION CENTERS ARE ALL OVER LOS ANGELES.
IT IS SO WONDERFUL OUR CHURCH FAMILY HAS BEEN SHOWING UP AND
SIMPLY BEING PRESENT WITH THOSE THEY’VE NEVER MET BEFORE WHO
HAVE BEEN EVACUATED AND THEY ARE BRINGING WATER, BRINGING
THE PRESENCE.>>AND IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA,
THE STATE’S LARGEST UTILITY HAS BEGUN ITS THIRD ROUND OF
SWEEPING BLACKOUTS, HOPING TO PRESENT MORE FIRES FROM
STARTING.>>THE WORST FIRE DANGER FROM
THE WINDS IS EXPECTED TO LAST THROUGH TOMORROW WITH
CONDITIONS FORECAST TO EASE AFTER THAT.
CBN NEWS.>>>IN OTHER NEWS, PRO-LIFERS
ARE ON TRIAL FOR EXPOSING PLANNED PARENTHOOD WITH
UNDERCOVOV MAJOR BLUNDER.
>>PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS SUING THE CENTER FOR MEDICAL PROGRESS
OVER ITS UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION.
THE VIDEO EVIDENCE ALLEGEDLY SHOWS PLANNED PARENTHOOD
OFFICIALS DISCUSSING ILLEGAL PRACTICES REGARDING FETAL
TISSUE. THE ABORTION GIANT HAS PUSHED
THE JUDGE TO KEEP JURORS FROM SEEING THOSE VIDEOS.
BUYING AND SELLING HUMAN FETAL TISSUE IS ILLEGAL IN THE UNITED
STATES. FEDERAL REGULATIONS ALSO
PROHIBIT ANYONE FROM ALTERING THE TIMING OR METHOD OF AN
ABORTION FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF LATER USING THE TISSUE AND
RESEARCH. CMP INVESTIGATORS RECORDED
PLANNED PARENTHOOD OFFICIALS TALKING ABOUT METHODS OF
OBTAINING ORGANS FROM ABORTED BABIES.
>>SO WHEN WE ALTER A PROCESS AND WE ARE ABLE TO OBTAIN
INTACT FETAL CADAVERS, IT’S ALL JUST A MATTER OF LINE ITEMS.
>>AND LAUGHING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY CAN MAKE.
>>WE AGREED THAT $100 WOULD KEEP YOU HAPPY.
>>THE AMERICAN CENTER FOR LONG JUSTICE IS PART OF THE DEFENSE
LEGAL TEAM. EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SAYS PLANNED
PARENTHOOD FOUGHT HARD TO KEEP THE VIDEOS OUT OF THE
COURTROOM, EVEN CONVINCING THE JUDGE TO KEEP THE JURY FROM
SEEING THEM UNTIL THEIR ATTORNEYS MADE A FATAL ERROR.
ULTIMATELY, PLANNED PARENTHOOD MADE THE FATAL FLAW OF BRINGING
UP ONE OF THE DEFENDANTS HERE TO TESTIFY.
SHE TESTIFIED VERY CLEARLY ABOUT WHY SHE DID WHAT SHE DID
GOING UNDERCOVER TO EXPOSE POTENTIAL CRIMINAL ACTIVITY BY
PLANNED PARENTHOOD.>>THAT OPENS THE DOOR FOR THE
VIDEOS TO BE SHOWN IN COURT.>>EVERYTHING CHANGED WHEN THE
JURORS SAW THOSE VIDEOS AND THEN HAD TO HEAR NOT JUST FROM
THE DEFENDANTS IN THE CASE WHO DID THE UNDERCOVER
INVESTIGATIVE WORK, BUT THEY HEARD FROM THE ABORTIONISTS
THEMSELVES ABOUT JOKING ABOUT MAKING MONEY OR GETTING A
LAMBORGHINI FROM SELLING BABY’S BODY PARTS THE BABIES HAVE BEEN
ABORTED.>>THE TRIAL IS ALSO ABOUT FREE
SPEECH AND PROTECTING THOSE WHO SPEAK OUT ON BEHALF OF THE
UNBORN FOR YOU.>>WE ALSO HAD TO FIGHT FOR PRO-
LIFE SPEECH, AND THIS IS ONE OF THOSE ISSUES WHERE YOU ARE
FIGHTING FOR JUST PRO-LIFE SPEECH FOR THE ABILITY TO GET
OUT GOOD INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM, WHICH IS DONE ALL
THE TIME WITHOUT ISSUE UNLESS, OF COURSE, IT’S THE ABORTION
INDUSTRY WHO YOU ARE TRYING TO INVESTIGATE AND SUDDENLY THE
COURT START TREATING THEM DIFFERENTLY.
>>IF THE JURY RULES AGAINST THE DEFENDANTS, THEY COULD HAVE
TO PAY FINANCIAL TENDENCIES IN THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
DOLLARS. THE TRIAL IS EXPECTED TO
CONTINUE INTO NOVEMBER, POSSIBLY WRAPPING UP AROUND
THANKSGIVING. MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.
>>PAT?>>I’M HAPPY TO REPORT THAT MY
GRANDDAUGHTER IS THE ONE WHO WAS IN COURT AND WHO GOT THAT,
BECAUSE THEY WERE TRYING TO — THE JUDGE IN THAT CASE, THEY’VE
TRIED TO RECUSE HIM, AND HE WON’T BE RECUSED.
HIS WIFE IS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD.
THERE IS A GAG ORDER THAT HAS BEEN PUT ON THE WHOLE TRIAL,
AND UNTIL THE TRIAL BEGAN, IT’S JUST AMAZING WHAT HAPPENED.
THEY ARE THE ONES THAT BROUGHT IN THE DEFENDANT, AND THEY
TRIED TO PUT THEM ON THE STAND. HAVING DONE THAT, THEN MY
GRANDDAUGHTER BEGAN TO SAY, WELL, YOUR HONOR, THEY OPEN THE
DOOR TO THIS OTHER TESTIMONY, AND WE HAVE AN ABSOLUTE RIGHT
TO CROSS-EXAMINE THIS PARTICULAR WITNESS.
WE HAVE A RIGHT TO SHOW THE JURORS.
>>SHOW THE VIDEO.>>SHOW THE VIDEO.
THAT’S WHAT IT DOES. I’VE GOT A PRETTY GOOD
GRANDDAUGHTER AND I’M PRETTY PROUD OF HER.
>>>A RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING GUIDELINES AND PROCEDURES FOR
HOUSE IMPEACHENT INVESTIGATION PUTS ONE OF THE PRESIDENTS
BIGGEST CRITICS IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT.
HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN ADAM SCHIFF WILL HAVE
POWER TO CALL PUBLIC HEARINGS AND TO OVERSEE THE WITNESS
LIST. THE RESOLUTIONS CAN SUGGEST
SUBPOENAS AND WITNESSES, BUT DEMOCRATS HAVE THE FINAL SAY.
IT INCLUDES WORDING ON DUE PROCESS RIGHTS FOR THE
PRESIDENT.>>IN THE HISTORY OF THE
COUNTRY, WE NEVER HAD THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE
PARTICIPATE IN AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY.
UNDER THE RESOLUTION, THE PRESIDENT’S COUNCIL CANNOT
PARTICIPATE IN THE END TELL COMMITTEE INQUIRY.
REPUBLICANS CAN’T CALL WITNESSES WITHOUT ADAM SCHIFF A
GREEN. THIS WHOLE THING IS A SHAM.
>>WHITE HOUSE DEMOCRATS SAY THEY ARE NOT LIKELY TO VOTE FOR
THE RESOLUTION. JEFF ANDREWS SAYS HE IS
SKEPTICAL THERE’S ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO IMPEACH THE
PRESIDENT AND NOT ENOUGH VOTES IN THE SENATE TO CONVICT.
AGAIN, THAT RESOLUTION SHOULD BE VOTED ON TOMORROW.
>>>THIS WHOLE THING IS OUTRAGEOUS.
IMAGINE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE WOULD NOT PERMIT
CERTAIN QUESTIONS TO BE ASKED OF WITNESSES.
HE SELECTS ALL OF THE WITNESSES AND THE REPUBLICANS REALLY HAVE
NO VOICE IN SELECTING THE WITNESSES, NOR ARE THEY ALLOWED
TO QUESTION FREELY THE WITNESSES.
IT’S JUST AN OUTRAGE. I SAID IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY
IT AGAIN, THERE IS NO WAY THAT THESE DEMOCRATS WOULD DARE TO
VOTE IMPEACHMENT, TO VOTE A BILL OF IMPEACHMENT.
THEY WOULD HAVE TO STAND BEFORE THE VOTERS NOT IN DECEMBER BUT
IT WILL BE JANUARY, FEBRUARY, AND MARCH AND THE VOTERS WILL
SAY, WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT HEALTHCARE?
WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT INFRASTRUCTURE?
WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT BALANCING THE BUDGET?
WHAT DID YOU DO WITH THESE CRUCIAL FOREIGN POLICY?
THEY WOULD SAY, WE DID NOTHING BUT IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT, AND
IT WAS A QUICK EFFORT BECAUSE WE KNEW THE SENATE WOULD NEVER
VOTE TO IMPEACH HIM. THE WHOLE THING IS A SHAM.
I DON’T KNOW WHY THE PRESIDENT KEEPS PUTTING THESE HEADLINES
OUT LIKE IT’S SOMETHING IMPORTANT.
THEY ARE NOT GOING TO VOTE IMPEACHMENT.
TRUST ME, THEY WOULD NOT DARE TO DO THIS BECAUSE THEY CANNOT
STAND BEFORE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
IT’S NONSENSE KNOWING THAT THE SENATE IS ABOUT TO TURN ON THE
PRESIDENT. THEY WILL NOT DO THAT.
AND SO ALL OF THIS IMPEACHMENT STUFF IS NOTHING BUT PRESS TO
TRY TO DRIVE DOWN THE PRESIDENT’S POLL NUMBERS.
THE REPUBLICANS ARE UNITED IN THE SENATE, AND THEY NEED 67
VOTES TO IMPEACH. THERE IS NO WAY IT’S GOING TO
HAPPEN.>>EVEN IF ALL 45 DEMOCRATS
PLUS THE TWO INDEPENDENTS THAT USUALLY VOTE WITH HIM, THEY
STILL NEED 20 REPUBLICANS, AND MOST OF THOSE — ALL OF THEM
RIGHT NOW ARE WITH LINDSAY GRAHAM.
>>I MEAN, THEY SIGNED ON. THERE IS NO WAY.
IT’S A TENUOUS THING TO START WITH.
HE HAD A TELEPHONE CALL, AND WAS IT A GOOD CALL OR A BAD
CALL? THAT’S NOT ENOUGH.
THE UNITED STATES SENATE WILL NOT DO IT.
IT IS AN EXERCISE OF FUTILITY, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NEED TO
SAY TO THESE CONGRESSMEN, LOOK, WE HAVE PAID, GET YOUR JOB
DONE. WE’VE GOT TO SEE ABOUT
INFRASTRUCTURE. WE’VE GOT TO SEE ABOUT
BALANCING THE BUDGET. WE’VE GOT TO SEE ABOUT FOREIGN
AFFAIRS. DO YOUR JOB AND STOP THIS
NONSENSE.>>>WE TURN TO THE UNITED
KINGDOM WHERE THE POLITICAL UPHEAVAL OVER BREXIT CONTINUES.
TUESDAY PARLIAMENT HAD A GENERAL ELECTION FOR DECEMBER
12th. THAT COULD BRING IN A WHOLE NEW
GOVERNMENT. BORIS JOHNSON IS WILLING TO
TAKE THE CHANCE TO END THE BREXIT PARALYSIS.
>>Reporter: BREXIT OPPONENTS HAVE FINALLY AGREED TO A
GENERAL ELECTION.>>LABOR BACKS A GENERAL
ELECTION, BECAUSE WE WANT THIS COUNTRY TO BE RID OF THIS
RECKLESS AND DESTRUCTIVE CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT.
>>THIS MIGHT BE CALLED THE GENERAL ELECTION, BUT IT IS, OF
COURSE, A SECOND REFERENDUM. WHETHER BRITAIN WILL LEAVE THE
EUROPEAN UNION AND IF IT LEAVES, HOW?
OPINION POLLS GIVE PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON’S
CONSERVATIVES THE LEAD, BUT THE ELECTION MAY NOT GIVE EITHER
SIDE THE MAJORITY NEEDED TO BREAK THE DEADLOCK.
>>IT’S ALWAYS POSSIBLE, REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED TO
BRITISH POLITICS IN RECENT TIMES.
MIRACLE OF MIRACLES, WE WOULD END UP WITH ANOTHER HUNG
PARLIAMENT. NO ONE PARTY IN CONTROL.
>>JOHNSON, WHO IS BOUND TO TAKE BRITAIN OUT OF THE
EUROPEAN UNION ONE WAY OR ANOTHER ACCUSED HIS OPPONENTS
OF SABOTAGE BY DELAY.>>THEY JUST WANT TO.
>>OUT FOREVER.>>WILL DEVISE ONE OF THEIR
COMPLEMENTED — COMPLICATED PARLIAMENT FOR A FURTHER DELAY.
>>VOTERS ARE FED UP AFTER MORE THAN THREE YEARS OF BREXIT
DRAMA, AND IT WILL BE A VERY GRUMPY BRITAIN THAT WILL VOTE
DECEMBER 12th. CBN NEWS, LONDON.
>>THIS ONE IS FAR FROM OVER. PAT?
>>>WE ARE SORRY TO SAY THAT THE TRUTH IS THE BUREAUCRACY IN
THE EUROPEAN UNION IS STIFLING. THE BRITS HAVE EVERY REASON TO
WANT TO HAVE THE COMMONWEALTH TAKEN OUT OF THAT.
AT THE SAME TIME, THEY HAVE TO HAVE AN AGREEMENT AS TO WHAT
THEY’LL DO AND HOW THEY WILL HAVE ACROSS-THE-BOARD TRADE AND
ALL THIS OTHER, AND THE EUROPEAN PEOPLE HAVE AGREED TO
SOMETHING. NOW THEY ARE WAITING ON THE
BRITISH PARLIAMENT TO GO ALONG. IT’S AMAZING.
I MEAN, THEY JUST ARE INSULTING.
>>QUITE ENTERTAINING.>>YOU THINK BREXIT IS GOING TO
BE GOOD FOR EUROPE AND THE WORLD?
>>ABSOLUTELY. YOU KNOW, BUREAUCRACIES ARE
STIFLING. IT’S A FREE ENTERPRISE, AND
THEIR UNELECTED BUREAUCRATS OVER IN EUROPE ARE CONTROLLING
THE FLOW OF TRADE AND COMMERCE AND ALL THE RULES.
YOU KNOW, BUREAUCRATS LOVE TO IMPOSE RULES ON PEOPLE.
THAT’S WHAT THEY DO. THEY LIKE TO PASS REGULATIONS
AND MAKE LIFE HARD FOR THE AVERAGE CITIZEN.
THEY ARE SAYING, WE ARE TIRED OF THIS.
WE WANT TO COME OUT. WELL, GOOD FOR THEM, BUT
THEY’VE GOT TO GET TOGETHER AND THERE HAS TO BE AN AGREEMENT
WITH THE EUROPEAN UNION. YOU KNOW, JUST TRADE BACK-AND-
FORTH, WHAT THEY DO WITH NORTHERN ISLAND, I MEAN,
THEY’VE GOT A COMMONWEALTH IN AUSTRALIA COUNTY AND SO FORTH.
HOW DOES THIS ALL FIT IN? THEY CLAIM TO HAVE MADE SOME
KIND OF A DEAL. NOW, LOOK, IT’S THE BRITISH
PARLIAMENT DRAGGING ITS FEET. BORIS JOHNSON HAS THE RIGHT TO
BE UPSET. SO WHAT’S NEXT?
>>STILL AHEAD, ABANDONED IN A BOOTLEGGER’S HOUSE AT BIRTH AND
ABUSED BY HIS FOSTER MOTHER’S BOYFRIEND.
YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE HOW THIS ONCE HOPELESS ADDICT WOUND UP
WITH A ROLE ON A MAJOR TV SERIES.
BUT FIRST, WHAT’S A BIGGER THREAT THAN ISIS?
THE NEW SCARE, AND GUESS WHO IS IN THE CROSSHAIRS.
FIND OUT RIGHT AFTER THIS.>>>THEY LIE.
THEY HAVE STOLEN AN ESTIMATED $600 BILLION OF INTELLECTUAL
PROPERTY, AND THEY ARE NOW THINKING OF ATTACKING THE
UNITED STATES NOT ONLY IN THE EAST BUT POSSIBLY IN OUR HOME
COUNTRY. IT IS A FRIGHTENING SCENARIO.
SO WHY ARE OUR LEADERS BLIND TO THIS GROWING MENACE.
>>Reporter: THE IDEA THAT CHINA IS A THREAT TO THE UNITED
STATES WILL SURPRISE AMERICANS WHO ARE USED TO THINKING OF
TERRORISM AND ISLAMIC EXTREMISM.
AS THE FOREMOST NATIONAL SITKA SECURITY CONCERNS CONFRONTING
WASHINGTON IN THE POST-9/11 ERA.
THE REALITY SAYS THAT BEIJING AND RED CHINA POSE AN
EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO THE NATIONAL SECURITY OF THE SORT
NOT SEEN SINCE THE DAYS OF THE SOVIET, STARTS.
WHETHER WE WANT TO BE OR NOT, WE ARE ENGAGED IN A NEW COLD
WAR. IN HIS NEW BOOK, DECEIVING THE
SKY, INSIDE COMMUNIST CHINA’S DRIVE FOR GLOBAL SUPREMACY, HE
LAYS BARE THE CHINESE AMBITION TO DOMINATE THE 21st CENTURY.
BOTH MILITARILY AND ECONOMICALLY.
AND HOW CHINA INCREASINGLY VIEWS THE UNITED STATES AS AN
ADVERSARY TO DEFEAT.>>AUTHOR OF JOURNALIST BILL
GERTZ JOINS US FROM WASHINGTON. BILL, THE WHOLE IDEA, HE SAID
WE ARE GOING TO FAKE THEM OUT WITH SO MUCH PROPAGANDA THEY
WON’T SEE WHAT’S REALLY GOING ON ON THE GROUND.
HOW HAVE THEY BEEN DECEIVING US?
>>WELL, IT HAS BEEN A MASSIVE DECEPTION OPERATION THAT’S BEEN
GOING ON FOR 30 YEARS. SUCCESSFUL GOVERNMENT
ADMINISTRATIONS HAVE FALLEN FOR IT.
I CALL IT A 40-YEAR AND THE GAMBLE WAS THAT IF WE TRADE
WITH CHINA, IF WE JUST ENGAGE THEM, IF WE ARE NICE TO THEM,
THEY WILL BECOME A BENIGN POWER.
IT’S BEEN AN UTTER FAILURE. WE HAVE SEEN CHINA IS ON THE
MARCH AROUND THE WORLD. THEY ARE PUSHING SOMETHING
CALLED THE BELTON ROAD INITIATIVE, WHICH IS KIND OF A
TROJAN HORSE OF EXPANDING NOT JUST THEIR ECONOMIC POWER BUT
THEIR TOTALITARIAN COMMUNIST SYSTEM AS WELL.
IT’S TAKEN A LONG TIME FOR PEOPLE TO WAKE UP.
FORTUNATELY, I THINK THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS THE FIRST
ADMINISTRATION IN DECADES TO REALLY LOOK AT THE CHINA THREAT
AND SEE IT FOR WHAT IT IS.>>YOU KNOW, THEY CALL
THEMSELVES. IT USED TO BE THAT THEY WANTED
TO CONTAIN THEMSELVES IN THE MIDDLE KINGDOM.
THEY DIDN’T HAVE EXPANSIONIST AMBITIONS.
ACCORDING TO YOUR BOOK, THEY ARE BUILDING A NAVY THAT’S
UNPARALLELED, AND THEY HAVE INCREDIBLE WEAPONS.
THEY ARE REALLY GOING TO ATTACK AMERICA.
MAYBE EVEN BOMB OUR HOMELAND. IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING?
>>YES. IN DECEIVING THE SKY, I OUTLINE
WHAT CHINA CALLS ITS ASSASSIN- BASED WEAPONS.
THEY ARE NOT TRYING TO CONFRONT THE U.S. MILITARY HEAD ON.
THEY ARE LOOKING FOR NICHE WEAPON SYSTEMS, AND THEY ARE
EXCELLING IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT AREAS, ONE WHICH I HIGHLIGHT A
LOT IS THERE SPACE WEAPONS WITH AS FEW AS TWO DOZEN MISSILES,
THEY COULD LITERALLY CRIPPLE THE UNITED STATES BY SHOOTING
DOWN SOME SATELLITES AND MAKING US UNABLE TO COMMUNICATE TO
HAVE FINANCIAL ATTRACTIONS. U.S. INTELLIGENCE HAS DETECTED
CHINESE HACKERS INSIDE OF OUR CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE,
ESPECIALLY OUR ELECTRIC GRID. THE BELIEF IS THEY ARE DOING
WHAT THEY CALL CYBER RECONNAISSANCE SO THAT IN A
FUTURE CONFLICT, THEY COULD GET INSIDE THE ELECTRICAL GRID AND
TURN THE POWER OFF. THAT WOULD COST MILLIONS OF
LIVES AND CREATE HAVOC IN THE COUNTRY.
THIS IS NOT A THEORETICAL THREAT.
THIS IS A REAL THREAT.>>THE BOOK OPENS WITH AN
ATTACK ON A SATELLITE. WAS IT FICTIONAL OR DID THAT
REALLY HAPPEN?>>THAT REALLY HAPPENED.
IT WAS IN 2007. IT CREATED A DEBRIS FIELD WHICH
HAS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF FLOATING PIECES OF DEBRIS,
WHICH NOW THREATEN BOTH MANNED AND UNMANNED SPACECRAFT.
THE CHINESE HAVE CHANGED TACTICS SINCE THAT 2007 TEST
FIRING. NOW THEY ARE WORKING ON HIGH
POWERED LASERS, WHICH ARE AN IDEAL WEAPON TO DESTROY
SATELLITES. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS HEAT UP
AND/OR BILLING SATELLITE AND YOU CAN FRY THE ELECTRONICS OR
DAMAGE THE OPTICS THAT ARE USED TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE GROUND.
THIS IS A GROWING THREAT.>>I MEAN, WHAT DOES THAT DO?
SOME KIND OF AN ADVANCED ARTILLERY PIECE?
>>YES. REAL GUNS ARE THE NEXT
GENERATION OF ARTILLERY. BASICALLY, THE CHINESE HAVE
DEPLOYED ONE ON ONE OF THEIR SHIPS.
THEY BEAT IN THE UNITED STATES TO IT, BUT IT IS, BASICALLY, A
HIGH-SPEED PROJECTILE WHICH DOESN’T HAVE TO BE FIRED.
IT CAN BE USED THROUGH ELECTROMAGNETISM.
AGAIN, IT’S ONE OF THOSE HIGH TECH WEAPONS YOU MENTIONED
MASSIVE THEFT OF AMERICAN TECHNOLOGY RANGES FROM 250
BILLION PER YEAR TO 600 BILLION A YEAR.
NO NATION CAN SURVIVE WITH THAT LEVEL OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
THEFT. I’M BEGINNING TO SEE THEY’VE
INSTITUTED A MAJOR CRACKDOWN ON CHINESE INTELLIGENCE AND
TECHNOLOGY THEFT.>>YOU POINT OUT THAT HE HAS
ONE OF HIS HEROES IS ADOLF HITLER.
HE HATES RONALD REAGAN. TALK TO US ABOUT HIM.
>>HE’S EMERGED AS THE NEW MAO, THE FOUNDER OF COMMUNIST CHINA.
HE HAS TAKEN UNPRECEDENTED POWER.
HE IS CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION TO MAKE HIMSELF DICTATOR FOR
LIFE. HE IS GOING ABOUT KIND OF A
SCORCHED-EARTH POLICY TO REALLY PROMOTE THE COMMUNIST IDEOLOGY.
HIS DOCTORATE IN COLLEGE WAS SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM, WHICH IS
A EUPHEMISM FOR COMMUNISM. AGAIN, WE SEE THAT THEY ARE
INSTITUTING MASSIVE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN WESTERN
CHINA. AS MANY AS A MILLION AND UP TO
2 MILLION. IMPRISONED IN CONCENTRATION
CAMPS, CRACKING DOWN ON CHRISTIAN CHURCHES IN CHINA AS
WELL. THEY WANT CHRISTIANS IN CHINA
TO READ THE WORDS RATHER THAN THE BIBLE.
SO THIS IS, AGAIN, A MAJOR PROBLEM.
PEOPLE ARE JUST BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS TRULY AN
EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES.
>>THE OLD SAYING WAS WE’VE GOT ONE CHINA BUT TO SYSTEMS, AND
WE CAN LIVE IN=PIECE. @MIGHT BE THE TIME THEY’LL TRY
TO ATTACK TAIWAN. IS THAT CORRECT?
>>THE NEXT DECADE HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS THE DECADE OF
CONCERN WHEN WE WILL SEE THAT THE CHINESE ARE MOVING AHEAD
WITH TRYING TO RETAKE TAIWAN, WHICH IS A DEMOCRATIC ISLAND
OFF THE COAST OF CHINA AND REALLY POSE AS A THREAT TO THE
COMMUNIST REGIME. IT’S SUCH A VIBRANT ECONOMY AND
VIBRANT DEMOCRACY. OF COURSE, WE ARE SEEING IN
HONG KONG THE SO-CALLED ONE COUNTRY-2 SYSTEMS.
THE FORMER BRITISH COLONY, THEY SAID, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR SYSTEM,
NOW WE SEE THEY ARE TRYING TO IMPOSE THE COMMUNIST SYSTEM ON
HONG KONG AND THEY ARE RESISTING.
THEY ARE RESISTING IN A VERY FORCEFUL WAY.
>>DO YOU HONESTLY THINK THAT THE CHINESE ATTACK AMERICANS,
TRYING TO MOVE INTO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA. WILL WE STAND
AGAINST THEM MILITARILY? WILL WE HAVE ENOUGH TO DO THAT?
>>I THINK WE WILL. CERTAINLY, THE TRUMPET
ADMINISTRATION HAS INDICATED THAT.
I WAS IN BEIJING IN JUNE OF 2018 WITH THEN DEFENSE
SECRETARY JIM MATTIS, AND HE, BASICALLY, TOLD THE CHINESE
THAT WE NEED TO SETTLE THE SOUTH CHINA SEA DISPUTES.
CHINA SEES IT AS A CHINESE LAKE. IF WE DON’T RESOLVE THIS, WE
ARE LOOKING AT JULY 19. A NOT-SO-SUBTLE HINT THAT SOME
TYPE COULD LEAD TO A WORLD WAR.>>HAVE THEY GOT THE NUCLEAR
WEAPONS CAPABLE?>>THEY CLAIM THAT THEIR
NUCLEAR POLICY IS NO FIRST USE, BUT THE PENTAGON HAS QUESTIONED
THAT POLICY. THEY’VE DEVELOPED A MASSIVE
NUCLEAR ARSENAL. IT’S IN SOMETHING CALLED THE
GREAT UNDERGROUND. SOME 3000 MILES OF TUNNELS
WHERE THEY HAVE PRODUCTION FCILITIES AND STORAGE
FACILITIES, AND THEY HAVE AN ARRAY OF MISSILES OF ALL RANGES
FROM SHORT-RANGE TO LONG-RANGE MISSILES.
TEN MORE HITS, WHICH REPRESENTS A LARGE INCREASE IN THE NUCLEAR
ARSENAL. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS
BEEN TRYING TO GET CHINA TO ENTER INTO ARMS NEGOTIATIONS TO
TRY TO DO THAT WITH THE RUSSIANS AS WELL.
THE CHINESE HAVE SAID NO THANKS.
ANY DISCUSSION OF NUCLEAR CAPABILITIES WOULD UNDERMINE
THE DETERRENT VALUES. AGAIN, IF YOU TALK ABOUT AN
EXISTENTIAL THREAT, SOME TYPE OF MISCALCULATION FROM ONE OF
THE OTHER GENERALS.>>YOU INDICATED THERE MIGHT BE
A POSSIBILITY OF SEEING THE UNREST IN CHINA THAT MIGHT
OVERTHROW THE REGIME.>>I THINK THAT GOING BACK TO
THE COLD WAR, FEW INTELLIGENCE PEOPLE PREDICTED THE COLLAPSE
OF THE SOVIET UNION. I THINK THEY’RE SIMILAR
INSTABILITY DEVELOPING IN CHINA RIGHT NOW.
HE’S INSTITUTED A MASSIVE PURGE OF BOTH MILITARY AND PARTY
LEADERS. THAT CREATED AN UNDERLYING
SENSE OF INSTABILITY. I COULD SEE THE REGIME BEING
OVERTHROWN VERY SUDDENLY AND WITHOUT WARNING.
WE DON’T HAVE REALLY GOOD INTELLIGENCE THERE.
AS I OUTLINED IN THE SKY, THE CIA LOST AS MANY AS ITS 30 AS
ITS RECRUITING AGENTS BECAUSE OF A BREAKDOWN OF THEIR
COMMUNICATION SYSTEM. THEY HAVE A MASSIVE ARMY, AND
IF THEY HAVE NORTH KOREA LINKED WITH THEM AND SO FORTH, THE
UNITED STATES AND ITS ALLIES COULD BE VERY VULNERABLE.
I DON’T KNOW, AGAIN, IF WE HAVE THE FORTITUDE TO STAND UP.
DO YOU REMEMBER THEY SACKED MACARTHUR.
WE WOULD GO OVER AND PUT A BARRIER TO NORTH KOREA.
BUT WE DIDN’T DO IT. NOW WE’VE HAD KIM JONG UN WITH
HIS MISSILES. THE CHINESE ARE GOING TO WORK,
YOU THINK, WITH THE NORTH KOREANS IN SOME KIND OF A MOVE
LIKE THAT?>>HE MENTIONS THE KOREAN WAR.
THAT WAS REALLY THE LAST TIME THAT THE CHINESE WERE ENGAGED
IN A MAJOR GROUND CONFLICT. SINCE THAT, THEY’VE SHIFTED
TACTICS. THEY ARE NOT GOING FOR GROUND
FORCES. THEY’RE GOING FOR MISSILE
FORCES AND ANTISATELLITE WEAPONS AND CYBER ATTACKS AND
SUBMARINE WARFARE. THOSE ARE THE AREAS THAT THEY
ARE GOING IN. THEY DO HAVE A DEFENSE
RELATIONSHIP WITH NORTH KOREA. CHINA FREQUENTLY TELLS THE
UNITED STATES IN ITS OFFICIAL MEETINGS THAT IT REALLY DOESN’T
CONTROL NORTH KOREA, BUT NOBODY IS FOOLED BY THAT.
IT’S CLEAR THAT BEIJING IS TOTALLY IN CONTROL AND COULD
CONTROL NORTH KOREA IF IT SO CHOSE TO DO, JUST BY CUTTING
OFF OIL AND ENERGY RESOURCES TO NORTH KOREA.
>>YOU KNOW, THIS BOOK, IF ANYBODY READS IT CAREFULLY, CAN
SCARE THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS OUT OF YOU.
IF THEY ARE AS BAD AT THAT, WE’VE BEEN FOCUSED ON TURKEY.
WE’VE BEEN FOCUSED ON THE MIDDLE EAST.
I PREDICTED AND HAVE SEEN THE OLD DAYS.
WE HAVE BEEN HUMANITARIAN WORK ALL OVER CHINA.
TEARING DOWN CHURCHES AND PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THAT CHRISTIAN UNDERGROUND?
DO YOU HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THAT?>>WELL, FOR A LONG TIME THERE
WAS A SLIGHT ACCOMMODATION. THE REGIME KIND OF TOLERATED
THE UNDERGROUND CHURCH, WHICH INCLUDES MILLIONS OF BELIEVERS.
THAT’S CHANGING NOW. AGAIN, THEY HAVE INSTITUTED NEW
IDEOLOGICAL GUIDELINES. THEY ARE REALLY PUSHING CHINESE
COMMUNISM AGAIN. AGAIN, THAT’S ONE OF THE
DECEPTIONS THAT CHINA HAS PUT ON THE WORLD THAT THEY ARE NOT
REALLY COMMUNIST, THAT THEY ARE SOMEHOW STATE CAPITALISTS.
THAT’S NOT TRUE. I SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN
DECEIVING THIS GUY, HIGHLIGHTING THAT THEY ARE
ATHEISTIC COMMUNISTS AND TRUE BELIEVERS.
IF CHINA BECOMES THE DOMINANT POWER IN THE WORLD, IT’S GOING
TO BE A REALLY DANGEROUS PLACE TO LIVE.
>>ONE LAST QUESTION. DO YOU THINK IT’S GOING TO
HAPPEN?>>I THINK THAT IT’S POSSIBLE
THROUGH PEACEFUL MEANS, WE COULD BRING ABOUT A REFORM IN
CHINA. WE NEED TO GET RID OF THE
COMMUNIST PARTY OF CHINA. IT’S KIND OF LIKE A MAFIA LIKE
ORGANIZATION RIGHT NOW, TOTALLY CORRUPT AND RUN BY A FEW MAJOR
CRIME FAMILIES. I THINK IF THE U.S. GOVERNMENT
WOULD DO A WHITE PAPER AND REALLY EXPOSE THE TRUE NATURE
OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF CHINA, I THINK THAT WOULD GO A
LONG WAY TOWARD BRINGING ABOUT SOME REAL CHANGE OVER THERE.
>>WELL, I HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT. THIS BOOK IS INCREDIBLE.
THE WEAPONS SYSTEMS, THE CYBER WARFARE AGAINST US YOU SAID
SEVERAL MILLION OF OUR KEY PEOPLE THAT THEY HAVE FOR THE
PERSONAL OFFICE OF OUR KEY LEADERS.
IS THAT CORRECT?>>YEAH, THEY ARE VERY GOOD AT
TAKING BIG DATA WHICH THEY STOLEN FROM THE U.S.
GOVERNMENT. THE OFFICE OF PERSONNEL
MANAGEMENT. THEY STOLE 22 MILLION RECORDS.
THEY ARE USING THAT NOW AS PART OF THEIR CYBER AND ESPIONAGE
EFFORTS. AGAIN, THE INTELLIGENT THREAT
FROM CHINA IS ONE OF THE MOST SERIOUS PROBLEMS FACING THE
COUNTRY. THE GOOD NEWS IS THE JUSTICE
DEPARTMENT IS RIGHT NOW ENGAGED IN A MASSIVE CRACKDOWN ON
CHINESE SPYING ON ALMOST A WEEKLY BASIS WE ARE SEEING
ARRESTS OF CHINESE TECHNOLOGY THIEVES AND CHINESE SPIES.
>>THANK YOU. THE BOOK IS CALLED DECEIVING
THE SKY. I HAD THOUGHT UNDER MYSELF, TO
BE RICH IS GLORIOUS. THEY WERE HAVING A RENAISSANCE.
WE’VE BEEN WORKING OVER THERE FOR YEARS.
IT JUST BREAKS YOUR HEART THAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY BULLDOZING
CHURCHES.>>MUCH WORSE THAN WE REALLY
THOUGHT I THINK.>>UNBELIEVABLE.
THIS BOOK IS PUBLISHED SOMEWHERE OR OTHER.
YOU CAN FIND IT WHERE BOOKS ARE SOLD.
AMAZING STORY, BILL GERTZ.>>>COMING UP LATER, HE SERVED
TO DEFEND HIS HOMELAND, BUT THEN HE COULDN’T AFFORD THE
BASICS FOR HIS OWN HOME. A ONE WARRIOR AND HIS WIFE GET
THE SURPRISE OF THEIR LIVES. BUT FIRST, HOW DID AN ADDICT
FOR 30 YEARS GO FROM LIVING IN A CRACK HOUSE TO ACTING IN THE
WHITE HOUSE. WHO IS THE ONE PERSON WHO MADE
IT ALL HAPPEN? YOU ARE ABOUT TO FIND OUT RIGHT
ATER THIS.>>>HE WAS NINE WHEN HE DRANK
HIS FIRST BEER, TEN WHEN HE FIRST SMOKED A JOINT, AND BY
THE TIME HE WAS A TEENAGER, MICHAEL DEVON ALSTON WAS WELL
ON HIS WAY TO BECOMING A FULL- BLOWN CRACK ADDICT.
IN A MOMENT OF CLARITY, MICHAEL MADE A CHOICE THAT TOOK HIM
FROM THE CRACK HOUSE TO THE WHITE HOUSE.
>>WELL, FOR ME EARLY CHILDHOOD STARTED AT THREE MONTHS.
MY MOTHER LEFT ME IN A BOOTLEGGER’S HOUSE.
A LADY THAT SHE KNOWS FOUND ME. SHE WAS NEVER MARRIED.
SHE DID NOT CHILDREN OF HER OWN.
GOD KIND OF PLACE US TOGETHER.>>SOMETIMES WE DIDN’T HAVE
LIGHTS OR WATER, BUT SHE ALWAYS FOUND A WAY.
SHE ENCOURAGED ME TO GET INVOLVED WITH THE THINGS OF GOD
AND THE THINGS OF CHURCH. I CALLED HER MOM.
SHE WAS THE ONLY MOTHER I KNEW. AT AGE SIX, SHE HAD A MAN
STANDING THERE. HE WOULD PLAY WITH ME A LITTLE
BIT AND THROW THE BALL. I DIDN’T THINK NOTHING OF IT.
I WAS INNOCENT. I DIDN’T KNOW NO BETTER, BUT
ONE DAY HE PUT HIS MOUTH ON PARTS OF MY BODY THAT HE WASN’T
SUPPOSED TO. HE TOLD ME THAT IF I TOLD
ANYBODY, HE WOULD KILL ME. AND WHEN I TOLD BLANCHE ABOUT
IT, SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING. THERE WAS NO PROTECTION.
I DIDN’T KNOW IF IT WAS FOR MONEY, DID SHE THINK I WAS
LYING? SO ONE NIGHT I HAD TO GO
THROUGH HIS ROOM TO GET TO THE KITCHEN.
I WENT TO THE KITCHEN TO GET SOME WATER AS QUIET AS I
POSSIBLY COULD. WHEN I TURNED AROUND, HE WAS
STANDING IN THE DOORWAY TO GIVE ME A HUG.
I WANT TO HOLD YOU. AND I FOUGHT PAST HIM AS BEST I
COULD. I TOLD HER HE WAS TRYING TO HUG
ME. SHE PUT HIM OUT.
MY FIRST SEXUAL ENCOUNTER WAS WITH A GUY.
I FELT DIRTY AND I FELT LIKE IT WAS MY FAULT.
I NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH MY SEXUALITY.
I WALKED AROUND WITH THAT FOR DECADES.
I STARTED HANGING AROUND WITH AN OLDER GROUP, BECAUSE MY
PEERS MADE FUN OF ME TOO MUCH. THEY WERE DRINKING AND DOING
DRUGS. I THINK I HAD BEER WHEN I WAS
NINE. I WAS TEN WHEN I FIRST SMOKED
MARIJUANA. THE SAME YEAR I GOT SAVED WAS
THE SAME YEAR I SMOKED — I SNORTED COCAINE FOR THE FIRST
TIME. IT SEEM LIKE IT NUMBED IT SOME.
I FELT HAPPY. IT APPEARED THAT PEOPLE WERE
MAKING MONEY. THEY HAD NICE THINGS.
I KNEW I WAS POOR. I MADE IT MY BUSINESS TO TRY TO
BE THE PERSON THAT EVERYBODY NEEDED TO KNOW IN ORDER TO GET
WHAT THEY NEEDED TO GET. MY MAMA DIED AROUND 16 OR 17.
I WAS ON MY OWN. I DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL.
I GOT ANOTHER JOB. I WAS ALSO TRYING TO SELL
DRUGS, MARIJUANA AND COCAINE, WHEN I WOULD GET MY HANDS ON
IT. RECREATION AND FUN TIMES
RAPIDLY BECAME A HABIT. ONCE THE CURSE OF ADDICTION GOT
A HOLD OF ME, IT HELD ME FOR 30 PLUS YEARS.
IT JUST EVOLVED EXTREMELY QUICK.
IT WENT FROM SNORTING COCAINE TO SNORTING CRACK.
I GOT INCARCERATED WHEN I WAS 28 YEARS OLD.
THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS TERRIFYING FOR ME
BECAUSE I’D NEVER BEEN PUT IN A CAGE, TOLD WHEN TO GET UP, TOLD
WENT TO SLEEP. I WENT BACK TO WHAT I KNEW, AND
I GOT MY BIBLE. I STARTED TO READ AGAIN.
AND I STARTED TO PRAY AGAIN. I DIDN’T WANT TO DO DRUGS IN
JAIL AND GET HIGH EVEN THOUGH IT WAS PREVALENT AND IT WAS
RIGHT THERE. EVERY TIME I GOT OUT, IT DIDN’T
TAKE LONG BEFORE I FELL BACK INTO THE SAME LIFESTYLE.
I ALWAYS SAY, I AIN’T GOING BACK NO MORE, THIS IS MY
LIFETIME. EVERY TIME I GOT BACK INVOLVED
WITH DRUGS. EVERY SINGLE TIME THAT GOD
BLESSED ME WITH GOOD JOBS, CAREER ORIENTATED JOBS, I’VE
BEEN DIVORCED TWICE. VEHICLES, MATERIAL THINGS.
I WENT RIGHT BACK AND LOST EVERYTHING.
I CHOSE TO BE OUTSIDE. I CHOSE TO SLEEP IN ABANDONED
BUILDINGS. I CHOSE TO SLEEP IN CARS.
I CHOSE TO HANG ON THE STREET AND NOT GO TO SLEEP AT ALL FOR
TWO OR THREE DAYS. I WAS ANGRY AT GOD AT TIMES.
WHY THIS? WHY DID MY PARENTS LEAVE ME?
WHY DID SHE DIE WHEN I WAS SO YOUNG?
WHY DON’T I HAVE A FAMILY? IF YOU ARE A LOVING GOD, WHY?
I DIDN’T GET IT. DIDN’T UNDERSTAND.
WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF DOING THINGS OUTSIDE OF THE LAW THAT
YOU WASN’T RAISED TO DO, AND THE LITTLE BIT OF DIGNITY AND
CHARACTER THAT’S LEFT STARTS TO SAY NO, AND YOU LOOK AROUND AND
YOU SEE YOU HAVEN’T DONE ANYTHING WITH YOUR LIFE, YOU
WASTED DECADES. WHEN GOD GIVES YOU A MOMENT OF
CLARITY, IT JUST MAKES YOU THINK.
IS THIS IT, IS THIS HOW IT’S GOING TO END?
WAS IT TOO LATE FOR ME TO HAVE A PURPOSE?
GOD GAVE ME A MOMENT OF CLARITY TO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT, THERE’S
SOMETHING STILL IN YOU, IF YOU TRUST ME.
SO I FINALLY GOT TO THE POINT OF TOTAL SURRENDER, TOTAL
TRUST. I SPOKE TO GOD AS IF I’M
SPEAKING TO YOU. IF YOU DON’T HELP ME AND HEAL
ME AND DELIVER ME, I’M GOING TO DIE.
I CALLED THE SALVATION ARMY A COUPLE DAYS BEFORE THEY TOLD ME
TO COME IN THAT DAY. GOD, I CAN’T LEAVE UNTIL YOU
FIX ME. HE LET ME KNOW THAT THIS IS IT,
THAT I’M GOING TO CHANGE YOU AND YOU ARE GOING TO BE ALL
RIGHT. IT WAS LIKE THE MOST COMFORTING
WORDS IN MY SPIRIT THAT I HAD EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE.
HE STARTED TO MINISTER TO ME. HE LET ME KNOW THAT I WAS HIS
SON. HE LET ME KNOW THAT WHAT I WENT
THROUGH WAS NOT HURTING ME. HE LET ME KNOW THAT HE HEARD
ME. HE LET ME KNOW THAT HE LOVES
ME. THE SALVATION ARMY IS A SIX-
MONTH PROGRAM. CLOSE TO GRADUATION, THE
OPPORTUNITY TO BE A SALVATION ARMY SOLDIER BECAME AVAILABLE.
I WAS A SOLDIER FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND THEY ELECTED ME AS THE
SERGEANT MAJOR OF THE SOUTH HAMPTON ROADS, WHICH IS SIMILAR
TO BEING A DEACON OR ASSISTANT PASTOR.
EVERY DAY I WAKE UP, GOD IS INVOLVED IN MY LIFE AND HELPING
ME BE INVOLVED WITH SOMETHING HE’S DOING.
I GOT AN OPPORTUNITY A COUPLE YEARS AGO TO BE IN HOMELAND,
WHICH WAS A SERIES ON SHOWTIME. I WANT IT BEING A SECRET
SERVICE AGENT. I WOULD TELL PEOPLE THAT NOBODY
CAN TAKE YOU FROM THE TO THE WHITE HOUSE WITH JESUS.
HOW DO YOU GO FROM GUARDING POOKIE RAY TO GUARDING THE
TELEVISION — TO THE UNITED STATES.
I MARCHED AS A REPRESENTATIVE. I DON’T HAVE BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN,
BUT I’VE GOT ABOUT 20 SOME KIDS I MENTOR.
I CAN’T BELIEVE IT. I CAN’T BELIEVE.
WE USED TO TALK ABOUT THAT EXPERIENCE.
IT CAN’T BE THAT REAL. BUT IT’S REAL.
IT’S TRUE. I DIDN’T KNOW IT WOULD BE LIKE
THAT. I HAD NO IDEA.
I DIDN’T THINK HE LOVED ME THAT MUCH.
NOBODY COULD’VE WROTE MY STORY AND TOLD ME THAT WHAT HAS
HAPPENED TO ME THESE LAST FEW YEARS, IT HAPPEN.
I MEAN, THE PLACES I’VE BEEN IN THE PEOPLE I’VE BEEN IN THE
COMPANY OF, IT’S NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING.
HE STILL LETS ME KNOW THAT THE BEST IS YET TO COME.
>>THE BEST IS YET TO COME. WHAT AN AMAZING STORY.
ABANDONED AS A BABY IN A BOOTLEGGER’S HOUSE.
GROWN UP WITH SEXUAL HARASSMENT, ALL KINDS OF STUFF.
DRUGS, COCAINE, CRACK, SELLING CRACK, DEALING, BREAKING THE
LAW. ALL THOSE THINGS.
GET DEEP INSIDE, YOU KNOW, OUR HEARTS ARE RESTLESS.
INSIDE OF EVERY HUMAN BEING AND EVERY HUMAN BEING THERE IS A
CRY TO BE UNIFIED AND UNITED WITH A GOD WHO BROUGHT HIM TO
BE. EVERYBODY FELT THAT.
MICHAEL FELT IT. HIS TEARS ARE REAL BECAUSE HE
THINKS, THINK WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.
MY LIFE HAD NO MEANING. NOW IT MEANS EVERYTHING BECAUSE
I HAVE WALKED WITH GOD. NOW, IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE
LORD, YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS, LET US GO ON TO KNOW THE LORD.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO? ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL.
WHOEVER WILL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED.
CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD. SAY, LORD, YOU LOOK AT ME.
I’M SORRY. I’VE MADE A MESS OF MY LIFE OR
I WANT MY LIFE TO COUNT. EVEN THESE LAST FEW YEARS, I
MAY HAVE 20, 30, 40, 50 YEARS, HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU GOT?
I WANT THOSE YEARS TO COME. I WANT TO BE SOMEBODY BEFORE
THE LORD. AND IF YOU DO, ALL YOU HAVE TO
DO IS ASK THE LORD AND PRAY AND SAY, GOD, TAKE ME.
I’M YOURS. HE WILL HEAR AND HE WILL
ANSWER. I HAVE A LITTLE BOOKLET IF
YOU’D LIKE TO HAVE FURTHER INSTRUCTION ABOUT WHAT COMES
NEXT. I HAVE A COMPACT DISC.
I WOULD BE GLAD TO MAKE IT AVAILABLE TO YOU.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS MAKE A PHONE CALL AND SAY, I WANT TO
KNOW THE LORD. WE LOVE YOU.
WE WILL JUST LIKE MICHAEL, HE SAYS, WHAT IS MY LIFE?
AN ETERNITY, WHAT IS THIS GOING TO MEAN?
YOU KNOW THAT SAYING, ONLY ONE LIFE WOULD SOON BE PASSED.
ONLY WHAT’S DONE WITH QUITE — FOR CHRIST WILL LAST.
>>>STILL AHEAD, WEDNESDAY ROUND OF YOUR QUESTIONS.
AMANDA SAYS, MY EX-BOYFRIEND IS IN A CALL AND HE WANTS TO KILL
ME. WHAT CAN I DO?
BUT FIRST, A FORMER MARINE AND HIS WIFE IN THE MIDDLE OF A
FINANCIAL MELTDOWN. THE DOUBLE BLESSING THEY NEVER
SAW COMING AFTER THIS.>>>WELCOME BACK TO THE 700
CLUB FOR THIS CBN NEWS BREAK. NEW DETAILS ON THE RAID THAT
TOOK OUT THE LEADER OF ISIS. A KURDISH MOLE INSIDE THE SAFE
HOUSE REPORTEDLY PLAYED A KEY ROLE.
SOURCES TOLD THE WASHINGTON POST THERE WAS AN INFORMANT
INSIDE HIS INNER CIRCLE. HE GAVE CRUCIAL DETAILS,
INCLUDING LOCATION AND LAYOUT OF THE SAFE HOUSE.

HE WAS ALSO ON SITE FOR THE RAID AND LEFT WITH U.S. FORCES.
ONE OFFICIAL SAID THE MOLE TURNED AGAINST ISIS AFTER IT
KILLED ONE OF HIS RELATIVES.>>>A FEDERAL JUDGE BLOCKED A
STRICT ABORTION BAN IN ALABAMA. THE LAW WOULD MAKE ABORTION A
FELONY AT ANY STAGE OF PREGNANCY IN ALMOST ALL CASES,

TEN YEARS TO LIFE IN PRISON. A U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE ISSUED A
PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION BLOCKING ENFORCEMENT OF THE LAW.

PARENTHOOD FILED A LAWSUIT. ALABAMA IS ONE OF SEVERAL
STATES ATTEMPTING TO CHALLENGE THE SUPREME COURT’S DECISION ON

FROM CBN NEWS BY GOING TO OUR WEBSITE.
PAT AND WENDY ARE BACK WITH MORE OF TODAY’S 700 CLUB RIGHT
AFTER THIS.>>>WELL, JOHN AND LEELA ROY
JUST BOUGHT THEIR FIRST HOUSE. THE ONLY PROBLEM, IT CAME WITH
NO APPLIANCES, AND THEY COULDN’T AFFORD TO BUY ANY.
THIS FORMER MARINE AND HIS WIFE WERE ON A SHOESTRING BUDGET,
AND THE STRESS WAS OVERWHELMING, UNTIL THEY
RECEIVED A HANDOUT FROM CBN HELPING THE HOME FRONT.
>>Reporter: CORPORAL JOHN ROY AND HIS WIFE LEELA CALLED CAMP
PENDLETON IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HOME WHEN JOHN
SERVED AS A U.S. MARINE. BOTH ARE PROUD OF HIS SERVICE.
>>I THINK PART OF THIS, THE WAY MY PARENTS RAISED ME,
BECAUSE HER FAMILY IS PRETTY PATRIOTIC, I ALWAYS HAD KIND OF
AN ATTRACTION TO THAT TO SERVE MY COUNTRY IN SOME WAY.
>>I THINK IT’S AN HONORABLE THING.
WHEN I SEE HIM IN HIS UNIFORM, IT MAKES ME SO PROUD OF HIM.
>>JOHN TRANSITIONED OUT OF THE MILITARY TO GO TO SCHOOL.
THE COUPLE KNEW IT WOULD BE FINANCIALLY TIGHT.
IT WOULD TAKE A FEW MONTHS FOR JOHN’S SCHOOL BENEFITS TO KICK
IN. MEANWHILE, THE COUPLE PURCHASED
THEIR FIRST HOME AND CLOSING COSTS DEPLETED THEIR SAVINGS.
THE ONLY HOUSE THEY COULD AFFORD WAS ONE WITHOUT
APPLIANCES, AND THEY DIDN’T HAVE MONEY TO BUY THEM.
>>SOMETIMES IF YOU GET WORRIED AND GET REALLY STRESSED OUT, I
WOULD CRY ABOUT IT. JOHN WILL REMIND ME THAT WE ARE
PARTNERS AND THAT I’M NOT ALONE AND THAT WE WILL FIGURE IT OUT
AND THAT GOD WILL ALWAYS PROVIDE WHERE HE LEADS US.
>>IF SHE HAS SOMEONE SHE WANTS TO PRAY FOR, I CAN PRAY FOR HER
AS WELL. LIKE WE CAN PRAY TOGETHER.
>>PASTOR DAVE TOWNSEND INVITED THE COUPLE OVER TO TELL THEM
CBN HELPING THE HOME FRONT WAS PAYING THEIR FIRST THREE
MORTGAGE PAYMENTS.>>WHAT DO YOU THINK?
>>I’M SPEECHLESS.>>AND HE HAD ANOTHER SURPRISE.
>>SO TODAY WE GET TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU GUYS TO GO

THANKFULNESS AND GRATEFULNESS. I FEEL SO LOVED RIGHT NOW.
I CAN FEEL GOD’S ARMS WRAPPED AROUND ME.
>>AND IF YOU ARE A CBN PARTNER, YOU ARE HELPING
COUPLES LIKE THIS. ALSO, PEOPLE HURTING ALL OVER
THE WORLD WITH JUST YOUR $20 PER MONTH GIFT.
WHEN YOU DO THAT, WE WANT TO BLESS YOU.
PROVERBS. THIS IS OUR GIFT TO YOU WHEN
YOU CALL. YOU CAN ALSO DESIGNATE YOUR
GIFT JUST TO HELPING THE HOME FRONT.
IF YOU HAVE A HEART FOR THE MILITARY AND YOU WANT YOUR GIFT
TO GO EXCLUSIVELY TO HELPING OUR MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN,
THEN YOU CAN DO THAT. JUST DESIGNATE YOUR GIFT TO
HELPING THE HOME FRONT.>>>IT IS TIME FOR E-MAIL.
>>LET’S GO FOR IT.>>AMANDA SAYS, MY EX-BOYFRIEND
IS IN A CULT AND HE WANTS TO KILL ME.
I’M ALSO IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE WITH HIM.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ME THAT I LIVE. I CAN’T CALL THE COPS WITHOUT
PROOF. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER.
OTHER THAN PRAYER, WHAT CAN I DO?
>>WELL, I THINK WHAT YOU CAN DO IS GET AWAY FROM THAT SO-
CALLED BOYFRIEND, BUT I DO THINK YOU CAN ALERT THE POLICE
THAT HE HAS MADE THESE THREATS AND AT LEAST GET SOMEBODY TO
INVESTIGATE IT. YOU CAN ALSO GET A RESTRAINING
ORDER. I THINK IF HE’S MADE A THREAT
HE’S GOING TO KILL YOU AND HE IS IN A CULT, THAT’S A PRETTY
SERIOUS MATTER. I DO THINK YOU CAN GO TO A
COURT AND ASK FOR A RESTRAINING ORDER.
YOU SAY YOU CAN’T GO WITH THE COPS, WELL, YOU CAN GO TO THE
COURT AND GET A RESTRAINING ORDER.
IT MIGHT HELP. I DON’T KNOW BUT WHAT CAN YOU
DO IN A SITUATION LIKE THAT?>>MAY BE STAY WITH SOMEONE
ELSE, NOT BE IN THE SAME PLACE.>>WELL, THE PERSON MAY COME
AND KILL THEM TOO. YOU NEVER KNOW.
THERE ARE A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES.
YOU KNOW, YOU SEE THIS KIND OF STUFF ALL THE TIME AND FICTION.
YOU DON’T KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO HANDLE IT.
>>YOU’RE RIGHT. SHE HAS TO GET THE POLICE
INVOLVED.>>GETTING A COURT ORDER.
RESTRAIN HIM.>>THE SPIRIT SAYS, I HAVE A
LOT OF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS RUNNING THROUGH MY HEAD.
HOW CAN I BLOCK THESE THOUGHTS?>>HOW DOES A YOUNG MAN CLEANSE
HIS WAY? FEED YOURSELF ON THE WORD OF
GOD. WHEN YOU GO TO BED AT NIGHT,
READ SOME SCRIPTURES AND THINK ABOUT THEM.
YOU HAVE ONE OF THOSE LITTLE PROMISE BOXES.
IN THE MORNING BEGIN TO SAY, THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS
MADE, AND I WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT.
THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE MEDITATION IN MY HEART BE
ACCEPTED. MY STRENGTH IS MY REDEEMER.
DAY-AFTER-DAY AFTER DAY, THAT’S HOW YOU CLEANSE YOURSELF.
>>THIS ONE FROM BRAD. AS CHRISTIANS, ARE WE TO FOLLOW
THE FESTIVALS IN THE BIBLE? DON’T THEY LEAD TO JESUS’
RETURN? WE HAVE A DIVIDE IN OUR FAMILY.
WHAT DO WE DO?>>WELL, I BELIEVE THAT THE
THREE FEASTS OF THE BIBLE, JESUS WAS THE PASSOVER.
THE LAST YET TO BE FULFILLED IS THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES.
I THINK THEY HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF SIGNIFICANCE.
I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU ARE DIVIDING YOUR FAMILY.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.
THOSE FEASTS HAVE MEANING. WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY’S
MINUTE IN THE BOOK OF MATTHEW. SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD
AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE UNTO YOU.
THAT’S ALL THE TIME WE GOT. FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US, SEE
YOU TOMORROW. BYE-BYE.
>>I’VE BEEN A MISSIONARY FOR
