TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

SEARCHING FOR SURVIVORS,

OPERATION BLESSING PREPARES TO

HELP AFTER A POWERFUL EARTHQUAKE

DEVASTATES TURKEY.

PLUS, COURTING THE FAITHFUL.

THE ISSUE OF ABORTION TAKES

CENTER STAGE AS GOP CANDIDATES

SEEK THE EVANGELICAL VOTE.

AND HOUSING HELP.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HOPES HIS

PLAN WILL HELP TROUBLED

HOMEOWNERS, BUT IS IT AN ATTEMPT TO

WORK AROUND CONGRESS?

ALL OF THIS AND MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

MORE THAN 270

PEOPLE CONFIRMED DEAD IN EASTERN

TURKEY'S MASSIVE EARTHQUAKE.

FIVE SURVIVORS, INCLUDING A

TODDLER.

200 AFTER SHOCKS HAVE MADE IT

DIFFICULT.

OPERATION BLESSING IS PART OF

THE INTERNATIONAL RELIEF

EFFORTS.

REPORTER: TURKISH PEOPLE ARE

LOOKING FOR SURVIVORS.

THERE IS A LOT OF SHAKING.

I HAVE RELATIVES AND PRAY TO GOD

THEY WILL COME OUT.

MAKESHIFT HOSPITALS IN THIS

QUAKE-PRONE REGION.

WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND

OUR FRIENDS.

PUBLICALLY TURKEY HAS

DECLINED INTERNATIONAL AID

OFFERS.

WE ARE DESPERATE FOR

INFORMATION FROM THE FIELD.

WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT AND ANXIOUS

TO LEARN ABOUT THE EXTENT OF THE

DISASTER.

WE ARE WORKING WITH HUMEDICA.

OPERATION BLESSING

INTERNATIONAL BILL HORAN SAYS

HUMEDICA HAS A TEAM LANDING IN

THE DISASTER AREA TODAY.

OPERATION BLESSING IS

INVOLVED WITH FINANCIAL SUPPORT.

DAVID DARG IS HERE WITH ME IN

ISRAEL ON OTHER BUSINESS, DAVID

WILL BE JOINING THE HUMEDICA

TEAM TOMORROW.

WE ARE IN A WAIT AND SEE MODE

RIGHT NOW.

DESPITE POLITICAL DIFFERENCES

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND TURKEY, THEY

OFFERED HELP.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SAYS IT IS WHAT

NEIGHBORS DO.

ISRAAID HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN

SEARCH AND RESCUE TRAINING

SPECIFICALLY WITH THE TURKS FOR

SOME YEARS.

OPERATION BLESSING HAS PARTED

NERS WITH ISRAAID IN

PHILIPPINES, HAITI, JAPAN AND

SOUTH SUDAN.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

> REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE HERMAN CAIN IS

ANSWERING CRITICS FROM FELLOW

CANDIDATES OVER COMMENTS HE MADE

ABOUT ABORTION.

HE TELLS CBN NEWS, HE SUPPORTS A

PRO-LIFE AMENDMENT TO THE U.S.

CONSTITUTION.

DAVID BRODY HAS MORE FROM IOWA

ON ALL THE CANDIDATES.

IN FRONT OF AN EVANGELICAL

CROWD IN IOWA, HERMAN CAIN CAME

WITH A PURPOSE.

I BELIEVE ABORTION SHOULD BE

STATED AND ILLEGAL ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

CAIN SAID WHILE HE WAS

PERSONALLY 100 PERCENT PRO-LIFE,

THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD PT WEIGH

IN ON CASES OF RAPE AND INCEST.

IT GETS DOWN TO A CHOICE THAT

THAT FAMILY OR MOTHER HAS TO

MAKE, NOT ME AS PRESIDENT, OR A

POLITICIAN.

THOSE COMMENTS PUT GOP RIVALS

ON THE ATTACK.

I WAS AN OFFENSIVE

COORDINATOR ON THE LIFE ISSUE

AND MOVE THE BALL DOWN THE

FIELD.

IT IS A LIBERAL CANARD TO SAY

I AM PERSONALLY PRO-LIFE BUT

GOVERNMENT SHOULD STAY OUT OF

THAT DECISION.

IF THAT IS YOUR VIEW, YOU ARE

NOT PRO-LIFE.

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

MICHELE BACHMANN SAID SHE WASN'T

BUYING IT, EITHER.

YOU CAN'T SAY THAT ON AN

INTERVIEW AND SWITCH ON A DIME

TWO DAYS LATER BECAUSE IT IS NOT

WORKING POLITICALLY.

ON CBN NEWS, CAIN TRIED TO

EXPLAIN WHAT HE MEANT.

THE TAPE THAT YOU ARE

REFERRING TO, I AM PRO-LIFE FROM

CONCEPTION, NO ABORTIONS, NO

EXCEPTIONS.

THEY ONLY FOCUS ON A LATER PART

WHERE THEY WERE TRYING TO PIGEON

HOLE ME.

THE LESSON IS BE WARE OF PIGEON

HOLED.

ARE YOU FOR REVERSING ROE V.

WADE?

YES.

IF WE CAN GET NECESSARY SUPPORT

AND COMES TO MY DESK, I'LL SIGN

IT.

HE WOULD HAVE THE POWER TO

PUSH FOR AND SIGN PRO-LIFE

POLICIES.

I BELIEVE THE OFFICE OF THE

PRESIDENT AND PULPIT SHOULD BE

USED FOR THAT.

NEWT GINGRICH, WHO IS RISING

IN THE POLLS GAVE A CHALLENGE.

HE IS VERY LIKABLE.

HE MIGHT BE THE FRONT RUNNER

EVEN BEFORE MITT ROMNEY.

YOU COULD BE PRESIDENT.

THE YARDSTICK IS TOUGHER FOR YOU

TO BE PRESIDENT.

ALL THESE CANDIDATES ARE HERE

TO WIN THE EVANGELICAL STATE IN

THE STATE THAT VOTES FIRST.

VOTERS ARE MULLING OVER THEIR

OPTIONS.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE

HEARD HERMAN CAIN SPEAK.

I HAVEN'T MADE UP MY MIND.

THEY ALL AGREE WITH WHAT I

SAY.

I DON'T HAVE A CLEAR PICTURE.

SUNDAYS IN RESERVED FOR

CHURCH.

A CANDIDATE TAKES TO THE PULPIT

LIKE MICHELE BACHMANN HERE AT

CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH.

BACHMANN STAYED AWAY FROM

POLITICS TELLING THE

CONGREGATION INSTEAD AFTER WHAT

HAPPENED SHE ACCEPTED JESUS AT

THE AGE OF 16.

I SAID I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAS

HAPPENED, I KNOW THIS, I WILL

RADICALLY ABANDON MY LIFE TO

YOU, LORD.

SPEAKING TO CHURCH MEMBERS IS

PART OF THE QUEST TO CAPTURE

HEARTS ON THE WAY TO WHAT THESE

CANDIDATES HOPE WILL BE THE GOP

NOMINATION.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, IN DES

MOINES IOWA.

> FEWER COMPANIES EXPECT TO

HIRE NEW WORKERS AS WORRIES OVER

THE ECONOMY GROW.

THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATON FOR

BUSINESS ECONOMIST, NEARLY 85

PERCENT OF ECONOMIC EXPERTS

EXPECT THE ECONOMY TO GROW.

THE NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES FELL

FROM 42 PERCENT TO 30 PERCENT.

WHILE THE NUMBERS -- 13 PERCENT

REDUCED, 8 PERCENT DID SO IN

JULY.

> PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BYPASSING

CONGRESS WITH THE LATEST EFFORTS

TO JUMP START THE ECONOMY.

TODAY NO LAS VEGAS, HE IS MAKING

IT EASIER FOR HOMEOWNERS TO

REFINANCE MORTGAGES.

THE HOUSING INITIATIVE WILL HELP

OWNERS WITH LITTLE OR NO EQUITY

AND REDUCE FOR THOSE THAT OWN

MORE THAN IT IS WORTH.

A NEW CATCH PHRASE, "WE CAN'T

WAIT." GOP LEADERS SAY IT IS

BECAUSE OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

POLICIES.

IT IS TIME WE TALK TO PHIL

KERPIN.

THE TITLE OF THE BOOK,

"DEMOCRACY DENIED, HOW OBAMA IS

IGNORING YOU AND BYPASSING

CONGRESS TO RADICALLY TRANSFORM

AMERICA."

ONE OF THE THINGS VOTERS WERE

SO CLEAR ON IN THE HUGE

LANDSLIDE ELECTION WAS THAT THEY

DIDN'T WANT ANYMORE OF THESE BIG

GOVERNMENT BAILOUTS AND FAILED

STIMULUS PROGRAMS.

THAT IS WHY THEY ELECTED A

CONGRESS TO SAY THE PRESIDENT'S

PLAN WAS DEAD ON ARRIVAL.

WE ARE GOING TO DO YET ANOTHER

MORTGAGE BAILOUT AND DISREGARD

THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE AND

VOTERS IS OUTRAGEOUS FROM A

PROCESS STANDPOINT.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, PERHAPS

EQUALLY IMPORTANTLY, THIS IS NOT

A PLAN THAT IS GOING TO WORK, IT

IS GOING TO REWARD PEOPLE WHO

CAN'T AFFORD TO MAKE PAYMENTS AT

THE EXPENSE OF THE REST OF US

AND PENALIZE BOND MARKETS BY

REDUCING RETURN.

THIS IS A BAD IDEA AND A REAL

INSULT TO VOTERS.

BAD IDEA BUT IS IT

UNCONSTITUTIONAL?

ARTICLE 1 OF THE UNITED

STATES CONSTITUTION WHICH IS THE

FIRST THING OUR FOUNDERS THOUGHT

WAS IMPORTANT TO WRITE DOWN, ALL

LEGISLATIVE POWERS INVESTED IN

THE CONGRESS, THE PRESIDENT IS

TRYING TO EXERCISE LEGISLATIVE

POWER.

THE PRESIDENT IS SUPPOSED TO

EXECUTE LAWS NOT WRITE LAWS, IN

MY VIEW, EXERCISING LEGISLATIVE

POWER.

HE IS NOT THE FIRST PRESIDENT TO

DO IT.

HE IS THE MOST EXTREME AND

PUSHING THE ENVELOPE.

IT IS CRITICAL WE DEMAND

CONGRESS DO ITS JOB.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE

HIM DO?

A LOT OF CONSERVATIVES ARE HAPPY

WITH THE GRID LOCK.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

CONGRESS CAN DO, THERE IS BROAD

SUPPORT.

PASS THE RAINS AGO, REGULATIONS

IN THE NEED OF SCRUTINY ACT.

IT HAS TO GO TO CONGRESS FOR

UP/DOWN VOTE.

IT CAN'T TAKE EFFECT UNLESS

CONGRESS APPROVES IT.

IT WILL END REGULATION WITHOUT

REPRESENTATION AND AT LEAST

THEY'LL KNOW WHO TO BLAME.

PHIL KERPIN'S BOOK, THANKS

FOR BEING WITH US.

MY PLEASURE.

COMING UP, TO THE RESCUE, A

TODDLER ANSWERS THE CALL WHEN

HER MOTHER GETS SERIOUSLY ILL.

A FREELANCE PUBLIC RADIO HOST

HAS LOST HER JOB BECAUSE OF HER

INVOLVEMENT WITH THE OCCUPY WALL

STREET MOVEMENT.

LISA HOSTED SEVERAL SHOWS ON

NPR.

SHE IS THE SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE

PROTESTERS.

PRESIDENT OF THE COMPANY WHICH

PRODUCES HER JOB, IT IS FINE IF

YOU WANT TO BE A LEADER OF AN

ORGANIZED PROTEST MOVEMENT, YOU

CAN'T BE IN A JOURNALISTIC ROLE.

SHE WAS PUZZLED NPR REJECTS TO

ME .

ANOTHER HOST IS STEPPING DOWN

UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION.

MICHELLE NORRIS SAYS HER HUSBAND

HAS TAKEN A JOB WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN.

SHE WILL NOT COVER THE ELECTION.

NPR HIRED A NEW CHIEF EXECUTOR

AND WANTED TO DEPOLITICIZE THE

NETWORK.

MANY NPR IN A FALL PLEDGE DRIVE

TO RAISE MONEY.

NOT ALL THE MONEY COMES FROM THE

LISTENERS.

CONGRESS PROVIDES ABOUT 15

PERCENT OF NPR'S FUNDS AND

ALLEGATIONS NPR IS TOO LIBERAL,

HERE TO TALK ABOUT THAT IS TIM

GRAHAM AT THE MEDIA RESEARCH

CENTER.

TIM, WAS LEE SA'S INVOLVEMENT

INAPPROPRIATE?

ABSOLUTELY.

IT IS ONE THING TO ATTEND.

IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, SHE HAS

BEEN THE PRESS SPOKESWOMAN FOR

OCCUPY D.C. AN DID A FILM IN

JULY HOW EVERYBODY SHOULD SHOW

UP.

SHE IS AN ORGANIZER OF IT.

IT IS QUITE DIFFERENT THAN THE

USUAL CONTROVERSIES YOU HAVE

OVER SOMEBODY GETTING A LITTLE

POLITICALLY INVOLVED.

QUITE APPROPRIATE THEN SHE BE

LET GO?

I WOULD SAY SO.

IF NPR, HOUSE REPUBLICANS

PROPOSE CUTTING FUNDING, THEY

ARE AT NPR HEADQUARTERS IN D.C.

TRYING TO MAKE SURE THEY DON'T

HAVE THESE CONTROVERSIES.

THEY KEEP POPPING UP.

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS

NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO IS STUFFED

FULL OF LIBERAL AND LEFT-WING

JOURNALIST WHO USE THAT TAX

PAYOR-FUNDED AGENDA.

WHAT ARE YOU ASKING CONGRESS

TO DO IN LIGHT OF THESE EVENTS?

OUR PRESIDENT WROTE A LETTER

TO SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER SAYS IT

IS TIME TO MAKE NATIONAL PUBLIC

RADIO GO WITHOUT THE FEDERAL

FUNDING.

WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA WHO CLEARLY

LIKES WHAT NPR IS DOING, IT

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A GREAT TIME

TO DEFUND NPR.

AT A TIME WHEN WE HAVE TRILLION

DOLLAR DEFICITS, WE ARE

SHOVELLING A HALF BILLION

DOLLARS INTO PUBLIC

BROADCASTING, IT IS NOT

NECESSARY ANYMORE.

ALL RIGHT, TIM GRAM, THANKS

FOR BEING WITH US.

SURE.

> LIBYA'S TRANSITIONAL LEADER

SAYS SHARIA LAW WILL BE THE

BASIS.

MUSTAFA YALCIN DECLARED LIBYA A

NATION THREE DAYS AFTER THE

DEATH OF MOAMMAR GADHAFI.

HE CALLED FOR TOLERANCE SAYING

THE BASIC SOURCE OF ALL NEW

LEGISLATION WILL BE SHARIA LAW

AND ANY LAWS THAT CONTRADICT

WILL BE NULLIFIED.

ALSO THE COUNTRY'S BANKING

SYSTEM WILL BE RUN ACCORDING TO

THE PRINCIPLES AND LIKELY MAKE

IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR CHRISTIANS

IN THE NEW LIBYA.

A TWO-YEAR-OLD GIRL IS

CREDITED WITH SAVING HER

MOTHER'S LIFE.

LORI JOHNSON REPORTS NO ONE

EXPECTED HER TO BE ABLE TO MAKE.

REPORTER: LA RIS SA TAYLOR IS

ALIVE BECAUSE OF A PHONE CALL

MADE BY HER DAUGHTER.

I WAS GOING TO WASH MY

DAUGHTER'S BOTTLE.

HER DAUGHTER IS TWO YEARS

OLD.

SHE PICKED UP THE CELL PHONE AND

DIALLED HER GRANDMOTHER'S

NUMBER, A SKILL SHE WAS NEVER

TAUGHT.

SHE SAID MY MOM FELL DOWN.

I COULD HERE A LOT OF GURGLING

NOISES.

I SAID LET ME TALK TO YOUR

MOTHER.

SHE SAID SHE WON'T WAKE UP.

PARAMEDICS SAY SHE IS

DIABETIC, SOMETHING SHE WAS

UNAWARE OF.

SHE MADE IT TO THE HOSPITAL WITH

ONLY MOMENTS TO SPARE.

I CAN'T IMAGINE LOSING HER.

SHE HAS BEEN WEARING A TOWEL

CALLING HERSELF A SUPERHERO

BECAUSE MOMMAS HADZ TOLD HER

ABOUT IT.

THEY ASSUME SHE LEARNED BY

WATCHING THEM.

THEY HOPE THEIR STORY WILL

ENCOURAGE OTHER PARENTS TO TEACH

THEIR PARENTS TO USE THE PHONE.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

> UP NEXT, SPREADING THE WORD,

WHAT ONE FAMILY IS DOING TO MAKE

SURE PEOPLE READ THEIR BIBLES

AND UNDERSTAND THEM.

THIS YEAR MARKS THE 400TH

ANNIVERSARY OF KING JAMES BIBLE,

THE MOST WIDELY READ BOOK IN THE

HISTORY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

IT SHOWS IT IS ON THE

DECLINE.

MARK MARTIN BRINGS THE STORY.

REPORTER: 1611, COMMON PEOPLE

CAN READ FOR THEMSELVES,

TRANSLATION WITH MEMORABLE

LANGUAGE AND POETIC PHRASING

APPEALED TO THE WIDE AUDIENCE

AND BECAME THE PEOPLE'S BIBLE.

TREASURED BY THEM AND

SOMETHING THEY COULD ENGAGE IN.

THE LESSON IS TO TREASURE THE

WORD OF GOD AS MUCH AS THE FIRST

PEOPLE THAT RECEIVED IT DID.

REFLECTS THIS SHIFT IN OUR

VALUE SYSTEM AND WORLD VIEW THAT

HAS TAKEN PLACE OVER THE PAST

COUPLE GENERATION.

DR. SCOTT CAROL ON ANCIENT

BIBLICAL TEXT ALONG WITH THE

GREEN FAMILY, THE FOUNDERS OF

RETAIL CHAIN HOBBY LOBBY, THEY

ARE AWAKING TO THE HERITAGE TO

OUR NATION.

THEY HAVE ON THEIR SHELVE AND

DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE.

TO BE ABLE TO TELL PEOPLE IS

SOMETHING WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT

AND THAT IS A STORY THAT NEEDS

TO BE TOLD.

STEVE GREENE BELIEVES THE

NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE

WILL HELP.

THIS IS A LUTHER BIBLE.

IN JUST A YEAR AND A HALF, HE

AND DR. CAROL HAVE BOUGHT

THOUSANDS OF BIBLES, TORAHS,

SCROLLS AND ARTIFACTS.

TO REINSPIRE PEOPLE TO

UNDERSTAND ITS VALUE AND IMPACT.

DR. CAROL IS THE AUTHOR OF

THE GREEN COLLECTION.

IT WILL BE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

IN THREE TO FIVE YEARS.

VERY LIKELY IS THE LARGEST

COLLECTION IN THE WORLD IN

PRIVATE HANDS.

THE GREEN FAMILY HAS

COLLECTED 30,000 ITEMS.

SOME DATE BACK TO 4100 B.C.

THESE TABLETS FROM MESOPOTAMIA.

WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACQUIRE

THINGS MUCH LESS THEY BE WORTH.

THEY PURCHASED BIBLES FROM

ORGANIZATIONS WANTING TO TURN

THEIR HOLDINGS INTO CASH.

STEVE GREEN ESTIMATED THE WORTH

WELL ABOVE 40 MILLION DOLLARS.

SPEEDY ACQUISITIONS HAVE DEALERS

BUZZING.

IT IS HARD NOT TO BE NOTICED

WHEN WE HAVE COLLECTED AND SPENT

AS MUCH AS WE HAVE.

I AM DELIGHTEDED WITH WHAT WE

HAVE.

I AM OVERWHELMED.

THIS BIBLE, FAINT SCRIPTURES

UNDERNEATH THE BOLD TEXT ARE

MAJOR PORTIONS OF OLD AND NEW

TESTAMENTS.

TOGETHER IT CONSTITUTES THE

5TH OLDEST IN THE WORLD.

YOU ARE ONLY 3 GENERATIONS AWAY

FROM JESUS IN HIS OWN LANGUAGE.

IT COULD NOT HAVE COME

TOGETHER WITHOUT DEVINE

GUIDANCE.

SOMETHING ALL MAN KIND SHOULD BE

READING AND ADHERING TO.

IT COULD BE THE FIRST STEP TO

FIND ITS WAY HOME, MARK MARTIN,

CBN NEWS, OKLAHOMA CITY.

A CHURCH IN WISCONSIN

UNDERSTANDS HOW HARD TODAY'S

ECONOMY IS.

THAT IS WHY IT HOSTED A GAS

GIVE AWAY, PEOPLE IN MILWAUKEE

WERE BLESSED WITH FIVE FREE

GALLONS OF GAS.

WE ARE THE CHURCH AND

SUPPOSED TO HELP THE COMMUNITY.

ECONOMY IS SCREWED UP AND

EVERYBODY STRUGGLING.

WE ARE DOING WHAT WE CAN DO AND

LOOK FOR BLESSINGS LIKE THIS.

FAITH FELLOWSHIP HOPES TO

OFFER MORE BLESSINGS DOWN THE

ROAD.

BLESS THEIR HEARTS, WENDY.

I FILLED UP JUST TODAY, $70 TO

FILL UP.

WE ARE GAINFULLY EMPLOYED.

YOUR HEART ACHES IF FOLKS

THAT DON'T HAVE A JOB BUT NEED

TO GET AROUND.

UNBELIEVERS MIGHT SEE THIS

AND WOW, WHY ARE THESE PEOPLE

DOING THIS.

THEY HAVE THE LOVE OF CHRIST.

SHOWING THEM WHY GRACE IS

FREE.

THANKS FOR WATCHING,

EVERYONE.

GOOD NIGHT.
