TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

PERRY'S PLAN.

GOP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE HOPES

HIS NEW TAX PLAN WILL HELP HIS

POLL NUMBERS.

PLUS, LIFE IN THE RUBBLE.

RESCUE CREWS FIND A TWO-WEEK OLD

BABY ALIVE IN THE WRECKAGE

OF A BUILDING IN TURKEY.

AND FIGHTING BACK.

BANK CUSTOMERS SOMETHING ABOUT

THE HIGH FEES THAT ARE

EATING UP THEIR MONEY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RICK

PERRY HAS A PLAN THAT WILL KICK

THE ECONOMY INTO HIGH GEAR.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM LORI JOHNSON.

CBN'S JENNIFER WISHON REPORTS.

REPORTER: SPEAKING FROM A

PLASTIC'S MANUFACTURER IN THE

SOUTH'S FIRST PRIMARY STATE

SOUTH CAROLINA, TEXAS GOVERNOR

RICK PERRY WOULD GIVE ALL THE

AMERICANS THE OPTION OF THROWING

OUT THE CURRENT TAX CODE AND

REPLACING IT WITH A 20 PERCENT

TAX FLAT.

TAX PAYORS WILL BE ABLE TO

FILL THIS OUT AND FILE THEIR

TAXES ON THAT.

[APPLAUSE].

MORTGAGE INTERESTS AND

CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS WOULD

BE DEDUCTIBLE.

AMERICANS WHO WANT TO STAY IN

THE CURRENT TAX SYSTEM CAN.

AS PRESIDENT PERRY SAID HE WOULD

BALANCE THE FEDERAL BUDGET IN

EIGHT YEARS, PUT AN END TO

EARMARKS AND HIS PLAN WILL

CREATE THREE MILLION JOBS BY

IMPLEMENTING A TAX RATE OF FIVE

AND A PERCENT ON OVERSEAS

PROFITS.

IT IS THE ECONOMIC STIMULUS

PRESIDENT OBAMA COULD ACHIEVE IF

HE WASN'T SO BENT ON PASSING

GOVERNMENT SCHEMES.

HE IS LAGGING IN THE POLLS

AND LOOKING TO REENERGIZE HIS

CAMPAIGN AFTER FACING CRITICISM

FOR NOT HAVING AN ECONOMIC PLAN.

HE IS NOT SUGGESTING REFORMS TO

THE TAX CODE, ALSO TAKING ON

ENTITLEMENT SPENDING. ON

SOCIAL SECURITY, HE WANTS TO

RAISE THE AGE OF RETIREMENT AGE,

LOCK UP TO TRUST FUND TO KEEP

CONGRESS FROM WRITING IOU'S AND

ALLOW YOUNG WORKERS TO INVEST A

PORTION OF THEIR BENEFITS.

IT IS TIME TO END THE NANNY

STATE AND EXERCISE PEOPLE'S

CONTROL OVER THEIR MONEY!

TO GROW AN ECONOMY, YOU HAVE

TO HAVE CAPITAL FORMATION.

GETTING TO A SIMPLE FLAT TAX, I

THINK WOULD BE A GREAT THING.

IT WOULD BE ROCKET FUEL THIS

CAMPAIGN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID IT WOULD

SHIFT TAXES TO MIDDLE AMERICANS.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS.

JOHN RANSOME IS THE COLUMNIST

FOR TOWNHALL.COM.

JOHN, GOVERNOR PERRY CALLS THIS

CUT, BALANCE AND GROW.

DO YOU BELIEVE IT CAN DO ANY OF

THOSE THREE THINGS?

CERTAINLY IT IS A BIG

IMPROVEMENT OVER THE CURRENT TAX

PLAN EVEN TIM GEITHNER CAN'T

FOLLOW.

PART OF THE TAX CODE NOW THAT IS

SO CONVOLUTED, THE ONLY PEOPLE

MAKING MONEY ARE LOBBYISTS.

I THOUGHT A PICTURE SPEAKS

1,000 WORDS, MOST PEOPLE WOULD

BE ABLE TO FILE THEIR TAX

RETURNS ON THIS PIECE OF PAPER.

ARE YOU ENCOURAGED BY THE FACT

THAT THE CANDIDATES ARE TALKING

AT AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE CURRENT

TAX SYSTEM?

WE WOULD START TO TAKE TAX

REFORM SERIOUSLY IN THIS

COUNTRY.

I THINK FOR REPUBLICANS, IT IS

THE 'OBAMACARE' KIND OF POLICY

THAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR FROM

THE RIGHT THAT WE ARE GOING TO

HAVE A TRUE CONVERSATION.

WE NEVER HAD A TRUE CONVERSATION

ABOUT 'OBAMACARE'.

I AM ENCOURAGED REPUBLICANS ARE

TALKING ABOUT IT.

HERMAN CAIN HAS HIS 999 PLAN.

CAIN WANTS A FLAT TAX LIKE

PERRY, HIS 999 PLAN IS A BRIDGE

BETWEEN THE CURRENT TAX CODE AND

A FLAT TAX, SALES TAX LATER ON.

PERRY'S PLAN IS SIMPLER.

IF YOU LIKE THE OLD TAX CODE,

YOU ARE WELCOME TO IT.

IF YOU WANT TO HELP FUEL

INVESTMENT, YOU CAN OPT INTO A

NEW PLAN.

JOHN RANSOM, THANKS FOR

PROVIDING YOUR INCITES INTO THIS

LATEST PROPOSAL.

> MORE TROUBLE FOR THE

EUROPEAN UNION.

THEY HELD A VOTE TO LET THEM

DECIDE WHETHER TO BREAK TIES

WITH EU.

THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER SAYS 70

PERCENT WOULD WANT THE EU.

> TRANSITIONING TO TURKEY TO

SEARCH FOR SURVIVORS, MORE THAN

430 PEOPLE.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

TODAY A DRAMATIC RESCUE OF A

BABY GIRL CAUGHT ON TAPE.

TYLER JAMES HAS THAT STORY.

REPORTER: THE 7.2 MAGNITUDE

EARTHQUAKE TOPPLED BUILDINGS IN

EAST TURKEY.

RESCUES WITH SNIFFER DOGS SEARCH

SIDE BY SIDE WHO ARE DIGGING

WITH BARE HANDS.

THEY ASK FOR SILENCE TO LISTEN

FOR CRIES OF HELP.

THEN A MIRACLE.

A TWO-WEEK OLD BABY GIRL EMERGES

ALIVE BURIED UNDER CONCRETE AND

TWISTED METAL FOR 48 HOURS.

CROWDS CHEER.

THE BABY'S MOTHER AND

GRANDMOTHER RESCUED AND RUSHED

TO THE HOSPITAL.

THE FATHER IS STILL MISSING.

THE FAMILY IS PRAYING FOR

ANOTHER MIRACLE.

OTHER GRANDMOTHER SAYS I HOPE MY

SON-IN-LAW WILL COME OUT ALIVE,

TOO.

I PRAY TO GOD FOR A MIRACLE.

THE MAJORITY OF THOSE PULLED

FROM THE RUBBLE ARE DEAD.

SEARCH AND RESCUE EFFORTS WILL

LIKELY END SOON.

THOUSANDS ARE SLEEPING OUTSIDE

IN TENTS, BATTLING NEAR FREEZING

CONDITIONS.

THIS MAN IS AFRAID TO MOVE HIS

FAMILY BACK INSIDE THEIR HOME

BECAUSE OF THE CONSTANT AFTER

SHOCKS.

RELIEF GROUPS ARE BRINGING

RELIEF AID.

THERE IS ONLY ENOUGH SHELTER FOR

HALF THE SURVIVORS.

TYLER JAMES, CBN NEWS.

TURKEY IS NOW ACCEPTING

ASSISTANCE.

THEY NEED PREFABRICATED HOMES TO

HELP HOUSE THEM.

ISRAEL IS OFFERING ASSISTANCE

AND DOING SO OVER A RIFF BETWEEN

THE TWO.

CBN'S OPERATION BLESSING IS

WORKING WITH THE GERMAN RELIEF

ORGANIZATION HUMEDICA.

TO FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP

OPERATION BLESSING, GO TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

> FLOODING IN THAILAND HAS

KILLED MORE THAN 360 PEOPLE.

THE AIRPORT WAS HOME TO THE

COUNTRY'S FLOOD RELIEF

HEADQUARTERS.

ONE OF THE TERMINALS HAD BEEN

CONVERTED INTO AN OVERCROWDED

SHELTER.

WATER LEVELS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

FLOOD ARE GOING DOWN.

STILL A THIRD OF THE COUNTRY IS

UNDER WATER.

MANY ARE TRYING TO PROTECT

HOMES WITH SANDBAGS.

OPERATION BLESSING IS IN

THAILAND DISTRIBUTING BLANKETS,

MOSQUITO NETS AND MEDICINE TO

THE PEOPLE FORCED FROM THEIR

HOMES.

> CONSUMERS ARE FIGHTING BACK

AFTER SOME BANKS INTRODUCED

HIGHER FEES FOR THEM TO ACCESS

THEIR OWN MONEY.

HEATHER SELLS HAS THAT STORY.

CHECKING ACCOUNT FEES,

OVERDRAFT FEES, MONEY TRANSFER

FEES.

IF YOU NEED TO MAKE A CHANGE,

THERE IS A FEE FOR THAT.

NOW AMERICANS ARE REFUSING TO

PAY UP.

THEY ARE CLOSING THEIR ACCOUNTS

AND TAKING THEM ELSEWHERE.

MORE FEES, WE FELT LIKE WE

COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE.

CREDIT UNIONS ARE BENEFIT,

TRAFFIC ON ITS WEBSITE IS UP 350

PERCENT.

IN OCTOBER, WE ARE ON PACE TO

GO 40 PERCENT ABOVE THAT IN NEW

CHECKING ACCOUNT AND DEBIT CARD

ACTIVITY.

BANK OF AMERICA ANNOUNCED A

NEW FEE AND ONLY BEING ADDED TO

MAKE UP FOR THE BILLIONS OF

DOLLARS THEY ARE LOSING BECAUSE

OF CONGRESSIONAL REGULATIONS.

THEY ARE TRYING TO BE MORE

TRANSPARENT, THAT IS THEIR

EXPLANATION.

I AM HEARING IT IS STILL A NEW

FEE.

ON FACEBOOK, MORE THAN 60,000

PEOPLE HAVE ADDED MOVE YOUR BANK

DAY ON NOVEMBER 5TH.

SOME ARE OFFERING SWITCH KITS TO

MAKE THE PROCESS EASIER.

SWITCHING BANKS CAN BE MORE

COMPLICATED AND ADVISE TALKING

TO YOUR BANK BEFORE MAKING

CHANGES.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

> COMING UP, ONE STATE IS A

HEART BEAT AWAY FROM INACTING

TOUGHER ABORTION LAWS.

MORE STATES ARE TRYING TO E

LIMIT ABORTIONS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL EXPLAINS.

REPORTER: HERE IN OHIO,

LAWMAKERS ARE CONSIDERING THE

HEART BEAT BILL.

IF IT IS SIGNED INTO LAW, IT

WOULD BE THE MOST PROTECTIVE

PRO-LIFE LAW IN THE NATION.

JANET'S PRO-LIFE GROUP, FAITH

TO ACTION.

IT WILL SAVE 95 PERCENT.

IN OHIO THAT TRANSLATES TO

26,000 BABIES.

IN ROE V. WADE, THE SUPREME

COURT GAVE A RIGHT UNTIL THE

FETUS IS ABLE TO LIVE OUTSIDE

THE WOMB.

ONLY AT THE POINT OF VIE LT.

HEART BEATS CAN BE EXPECTED TO

18 DAYS INTO A PREGNANCIES.

THE VERBAGE OF THE HEART BEAT

BILL MAKES PERFECT SENSE.

THE PROTECTABLE HEART BEAT

SIGNIFIES LIFE FOR EVERY

PATIENT.

AS ON OB STA IT IS A BIG STEP

TO ASKING OUR SUPREME COURT TO

ROE V. WADE.

IT IS THE GOAL OF MANY

PRO-LIFE AMERICANS.

WE ARE HERE IN A TIME OF

DESTINATION.

I AM HERE TO SUPPORT GOD'S

VISION NOT ONLY FOR OHIO, BUT

OUR NATION AND WORLD.

A HANDFUL OF ACTIVISTS

PROTESTED.

WE CAN'T AFFORD IT.

IT IS NOT PRO-CHOICE GROUPS

SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THIS

LEGISLATION.

THERE ARE VERY PROMINENT

MEMBERS OF THE PRO-LIFE

COMMUNITY THAT ARE NOT SOLD ON

THE STRATEGY.

PEGGY SPENT 40 YEARS IS

CONCERNED ABOUT LEGAL

CHALLENGES.

IS THE SUPREME COURT RIGHT

FOR THIS DECISION?

THAT IS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION TO

ASK BECAUSE IF YOU THROW

SOMETHING AT THE COURT BEFORE

THEY ARE READY, YOU RUN THE RISK

OF IT BECOMING A ROBING,

REAFFIRMED, ONCE AGAIN.

OHIO CHAPTER TOLD CBN NEWS,

OTHERS AGREE.

I THINK THE IDEA BEHIND IT IS

NOTABLE.

WE AGREE WITH THE IDEA, WE

SHOULD HUMANIZE THE PRE-BORN

CHILD.

THE OVERALL STRATEGY IS

FLAWED.

THE BILL ONLY PROTECTS BABIES

WHOSE HEART BEATS CAN BE

DETECTED.

WHILE IT POINTS TO THE HEART

BEAT AS AN INDICATOR OF LIFE, IT

PROVIDES A QUALIFIER FOR BEING

PROTECTED.

THAT IS WHY WE CAN'T SUPPORT IT.

MANY IN THE STATE BELIEVE THE

TIME IS NOW FOR THE BEATING

HEARTS OF BABIES TO BE

PROTECTED.

AS WE HUMBLE, PRAY, TURN FROM

OUR WICKED WAYS, I BELIEVE WE

HAVE HEARD THE MODEL ALREADY

TODAY.

WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS,

COLUMBUS, OHIO.

PRO-LIFE PEOPLE ARE WAGING

THEIR WAR AGAINST ABORTION WITH

A DOCUMENTARY THAT HAS GONE

VIRAL.

IT USES HITLER AND THE HOLOCAUST

TO TURN APEOPLE AWAY FROM

ABORTION IN A FEW MINUTES.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF ADOLPH

HITLER?

HE FOUND HE COULD SHOW THEM

THEY ARE TREATING ABORTION LIKE

THE WAY THE JEWS WERE TREATED.

NOW COMFORT'S FRIENDS AND

ALLIES ARE PASSING OUT A DVD

VERSION LIKE IN ROCKVILLE,

MARYLAND.

WE ARE TRYING TO CHANGE

STUDENT'S MINDS ABOUT ABORTION.

ERICK TAKES IT PERSONALLY.

HE LOOKS AT HIS THREE ADOPTED

CHILDREN.

THEY ALL CAME FROM WOMBS

WHERE ABORTIONS HAD TAKEN PLACE

PREVIOUSLY.

I SAY YOU KNOW, THEY WERE THE

ONES THAT MADE IT.

THERE SHOULD BE OTHERS.

AT LEAST THEY COULD CALL BROTHER

AND SISTER.

FILM MAKERS JAYSON JONES LED

TO SACRIFICE WHEN HE MET A MAN

THAT GAVE UP CHOCOLATE.

MISERY LOVES COMPANY.

LET'S CREATE A WEBSITE AND ASK

PEOPLE TO VIDEO-TAPE THEMSELVES

DOING THEIR FAVORITE THING.

A PRO-CHOICE WOMAN SHOWING UP

MOCKING THEM.

I AM IMPRESSED WITH THE YOUNG

MEN AND WOMEN WHO THINK THEY CAN

SWAY WOMEN'S CHOICES ABOUT THEIR

BODIES AND FAMILIES BY MAKING

MEANING LESS GESTURES LIKE

GIVING UP JUNK FOOD.

SHE WENT ON AND ON, ON THIS

RANT.

JENNI STONE SHOT BACK

ANSWERING AARON'S VIDEO.

THE FACT IS THAT WE ARE

GIVING SOMETHING UP.

EACH TIME WE HAVE THE DESIRE,

WE'LL REMEMBER AND IT REMINDS US

TO ACT ON OUR PRO-LIFE

CONVICTIO

CONVICTIONS.

IT IS A WAY FOR THE

TECH-SAVVY TO KEEP TOPIC OF

ABORTION IN FRONT OF PEOPLE.

THOSE THAT OPPOSE ABORTION ARE

IN FAVOR OF ANY WAY TO FIGHT FOR

LIFE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

ROCKVILLE, MARYLAND.

> UP NEXT, AN ARTIST SHARES

THE STORY OF CHRIST IN A VERY

BIG WAY.

A GOVERNMENT PANEL RECOMMENDS

YOUNG BOYS GET A CONTROVERSY

VACCINE.

DOCTORS ARGUE THE HPV VACCINE

COULD PREVENT BOYS AND COULD

HELP PREVENT THE SPREAD OF THE

VIRUS TO GIRLS.

THE HPV VIRUS HAS BEEN IN

DISPUTE SINCE FIVE YEAR AGO.

THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE MADE THE

RECOMMENDATION TODAY.

> IN PHOENIX, PER RIGGSER'S

HOPE THAT THE PEOPLE THAT STOLE

THEIR FOUR-FOOT BRONZE STATUTE.

IT SYMBOLIZES JESUS WELCOMING

EVERYONE.

YOU SOME HOW THINK A SACRED

OBJECT WOULD BE A LITTLE SAFER,

ESPECIALLY ONE BOLTED DOWN TO A

MARBLE CUBE.

IT SHOWS A MAN LOADING THE

STATUTE INTO THE BACK OF A

PICKUP TRUCK.

THE HOPES THE ACHIEVES

RECONSIDER THEIR RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD.

WOW.

> CHRISTMAS COMING TO REGENT

UNIVERSITY THIS YEAR.

A NEW MURAL.

HEATHER SELLS SPOKE WITH ARTIST

KEITH

GOODSON.

THIS IS NOT YOUR

TYPICAL

ROAD

SHOW A

ND

WON'T FIT

IN

MOST

HOMES.

KEITH GOODSON HAS

CREATED

A

MASTERPIECE TO

INSPIRE

US

ABOUT

THE BIRTH OF

CHRIST.

IF YOU EXPERIENCE A MURAL,

YOU ARE EXPERIENCING SOMETHING

LARGER THAN YOURSELF.

YOU BECOME PART OF THE PAINTING.

A TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS HELP TO

RAISE THE MURAL.

THEY STAND AND TAKE IN THE

PAINTING.

IT STARTS WITH THE PROPHET

ISAIAH WHO PROPHESIED THE BIRTH

OF CHRIST.

HE IS SEEING HOW ALL CULTURES

ARE COMING TO THIS ONE MOMENT IN

TIME WHERE THE BIRTH IS BEING

VIEWED.

GOODSON PAINTED JOSEPH IN THE

CENTER AND THE ONLY ONE THAT

LOOKS STRAIGHT AT YOU.

HE IS SAYING, THIS IS THE LIGHT

OF THE WORLD.

IT BECOMES A CHALLENGING PIECE.

GOODSON NAMES HIS WORK LIGHT

OF THE WORLD.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

WELL ALL NEWLYWEDS HAVE TO

WEATHER A FEW STORMS.

ONE COUPLE WAS SURPRISED WHEN

ONE STORM CAME ON THEIR WEDDING

DAY.

YOU CAN SEE THE YOUTUBE

VIDEO.

JUST A FEW MINUTES INTO THEIR

WEDDING, A DUST CLOUD MOVED

THROUGH THE AREA.

BLANKET OF BROWN DIRT MADE IT

IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM TO SEE

ANYTHING, LET ALONE EACH OTHER.

EVEN THOUGH THE DAY DIDN'T GO

EXACTLY AS SHE EXPECTED, HER

DREAM WEDDING WAS ANYTHING BUT

FORGETTABLE.

GOOD FOR HER.

SHE HAD A GREAT ATTITUDE.

THERE IS SOME SORT OF

SUPERSTITION THAT YOU ARE GOING

TO HAVE A GREAT MARRIAGE.

THAT IS WHAT THEY SAY, IF YOU

HAVE A WEDDING MISHAP, THAT IS

GOOD FORTUNE.

THAT IS ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS EDITION OF "NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR JOINING US, WE'LL

SEE YOU NEXT TIME, GOOD NIGHT.
