TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THE FRONT

RUNNER.

A POLITICAL WEBSITE CLAIMS

HERMAN CAIN WAS ACCUSED OF

SEXUAL HARASSMENT.

PLUS, ATTACK ON ISRAEL,

VIOLENCE IS ESCALATING AS

PALESTINIAN TERRORISTS LAUNCH

ROCKETS INTO THE HOLY LAND.

AND 7 BILLION AND COUNTING.

A SYMBOLIC BIRTH HAS SOME

WORRIED ABOUT REAL WORLD

PROBLEMS.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

THE FRONT RUNNER

FOR THE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

NOMINATION SAYS HE HAS NEVER

SEXUALLY HARASSED ANYONE.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

HERMAN CAIN IS ON THE DEFENSIVE

AFTER ALLEGATIONS OF IMPROPER

BEHAVIOR AT ONE OF HIS FORMER

JOBS.

DAVID BRODY SORTS IT ALL OUT.

REPORTER: FOR HERMAN CAIN THE

LAST MONTH HAS BEEN A WHIRLWIND.

HE HAS LAUNCHED FROM THE BOTTOM

OF THE PACK TO THE TOP OF THE

POLLS, WITH FRONT RUNNER STATUS

COMES FRONT RUNNER SCRUTINY.

EXPECT TO BE ATTACKED.

IT IS NO LONGER ABOUT HIS 999

PLAN.

A POLITICAL REPORT SUGGESTS CAIN

WAS CHARGED WITH SEXUAL

HARASSMENT.

THE WOMEN SIGNED AGREEMENTS THAT

GAVE THEM PAY OUTS TO LEAVE AND

NOT TALK ABOUT ALLEGATIONS.

I AM NOT GOING TO TALK ABOUT

TWO PEOPLE YOU WON'T TELL ME WHO

THEY ARE.

THE CAIN SPRANG INTO FULL

DAMAGE MODE.

FIRST ATTACKS OF SLASH FISCAL

POLICY SPEECH.

HE DIDN'T HAVE TO TAKE QUESTIONS

ABOUT THE ACCUSATIONS.

THEN ON FOX NEWS, WHERE HE SAID

HE WAS AWARE OF AN ACCUSATION

WHILE HE WORKED FOR THE NATIONAL

RESTAURANT BUT DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT

A SETTLEMENT.

I HAVE NEVER HARASSED ANYONE

AND YES, I WAS FALSELY ACCUSED

AND I SAY FALSELY, IT TURNED OUT

AFTER THE INVESTIGATION TO BE

BASELESS.

AND FINALLY AT THE NATIONAL

CLUB, CAIN FACED A ROOM FULL OF

REPORTERS.

WHEN CHARGES BROUGHT, I

RECUSED MYSELF AND ALLOWED MY

GENERAL COUNCIL AND HUMAN

RESOURCE OFFICER TO DEAL WITH

THE ASSOCIATON.

HIS CAMPAIGN ACCUSES THE

MEDIA.

MR. CAIN SAYS HE IS GOING TO BE

HIMSELF.

I DO HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR,

SOME HAVE A PROBLEM.

BUT TO QUOTE MY CHIEF OF STAFF

AND ALL OF THE PEOPLE I HAVE

TALKED TO AROUND THIS COUNTRY,

HERMAN BE HERMAN, AND HERMAN IS

GOING TO STAY HERMAN, THANK YOU

VERY MUCH.

CAIN GAVE THE PRESS CORE A

GLIMPSE INTO HIS LOVE OF FAITH

AND GOSPEL MUSIC.

AMAZING GRACE [SINGING] WILL

ALWAYS BE MY SONG OF PRAISE.

* FOR IT WAS GRACE THAT

BROUGHT ME LIBERTY.

DAVID BRODY REPORTING AND

DAVID, HOW DAMAGING COULD THESE

CLAIMS BE COULD BE THE CAIN

CAMPAIGN?

I DON'T BELIEVE IT WAS THE

REPORTER THAT WROTE THIS STORY.

SAID THEY DIDN'T WANT TO GET

INTO THE SPECIFICS.

ONE CAN ASK THEM WHY THEY

WOULDN'T IF THEY HAVE THE

DETAILS?

THAT'S RIGHT.

THERE SEEMS TO BE A SENSE FOR

LACK OF A BETTER TERM,

CONTRACTUAL ISSUES WHAT THESE

FOLKS THAT HAVE MADE THE CLAIMS

CAN SAY.

LOOK, FOR HERMAN CAIN, OF COURSE

THIS COULD BE A DAMAGING STORY.

I THINK FOR WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO

HERE AND WHAT WE SAW TODAY IS TO

KEEP THAT JOVIAL DEMEANOR

THROUGH A VERY TOUGH STORY.

IF HE IS GOING TO START TO

BECOME A POLITICIAN, A TYPICAL

POLITICIAN WHO GIVES LONG-WINDED

ANSWERS AND NOT ANSWER THE

QUESTION, HE IS GOING TO LOOK

LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE.

WHAT HERMAN CAIN HAS DONE SO

FAR, HE HAS BEEN EXACTLY THE

OPPOSITE OF THAT, LEE.

A NON POLITICIAN, THEREFORE

GIVING STRAIGHT ANSWERS TO

CERTAIN QUESTIONS.

DAVID, HOW DO YOU THINK HE

DID AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, HOW DO

YOU THINK THE MEDIA RESPONDED AT

THE PRESS CLUB.

I WONDER IF THEY WERE HANDING

OUT SMELLING SALTS WHEN HE

STARTED SINGING ABOUT JESUS.

HERMAN CAIN DID WHAT HE HAD TO

DO, KEPT IT LIGHT IN THE SENSE

HE WAS ABLE NOT TO GET MEAN AND

ANGRY AND VICIOUS IN HIS ANSWERS

AND ABLE TO GET DIRECT ANSWERS.

THIS IS WHAT HERMAN CAIN HAS

BEEN ALL ABOUT.

I REMEMBER IN IOWA, HE WAS

TALKING TO A FAITH AND FREEDOM

COALITION.

HE SAID AMERICA IS RUN BY STUPID

PEOPLE.

AND HE GOT THE CROWD LAUGHING.

THIS IS HERMAN CAIN'S STAKE.

HE IS NO NON SENSE.

HE IS DOING THE SAME HERE, IT

COULD WORK FOR HIM THIS TIME

AROUND AS WELL.

DAVID BRODY FROM WASHINGTON,

THANKS.

THANKS, LEE.

JULIE STALL, CBN NEWS, ISRAEL.

> COMING UP, IN THE COLD AND

DARK.

AN EARLY START TO WINTER CAUSES

BIG PROBLEMS FOR PEOPLE IN THE

NORTHEAST.

THE NORTHEAST IS CLEANING UP

FROM A SNOWSTORM THAT LEFT NINE

PEOPLE DEAD, 2 MILLION PEOPLE

WITHOUT POWER.

NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR CHRIS CRIST

TEE SAYS THE DAMAGE IS WORSE

THAN HURRICANE IRENE.

THE MONSTER NOR'EASTER WAS

HARD.

CONNECTICUT HIT THE HARDEST.

I AM ADVISED INITIALLY SOME

PEOPLE COULD BE WITHOUT POWER

FOR AS MUCH AS A WEEK.

MARYLAND TO MAINE, MILLIONS

IN THE DARK AND HUNDREDS OF

SCHOOLS CLOSED.

LEAVES STILL ON THE TREES,

MADE BRANCHES HEAVIER.

THAT SENT THE TREES CRASHING

THROUGH POWER LINES.

TOMORROW WASHINGTON LAWMAKERS

ARE SLATED TO VOTE ON A MEASURE

THAT WOULD REAFFIRM AMERICA'S

NATIONAL MOTTO IN GOD WE TRUST.

IT WAS OFFICIALLY ADOPTED AS THE

NATIONAL MOTTO IN 1956.

SUPPORTERS SAY THEY ARE

RESPONDING TO RECENT

MISSTATEMENTS INCLUDING A SPEECH

PRESIDENT OBAMA GAVE IN 2010.

THE RESOLUTION INTRODUCED BY

VIRGINIA CONGRESSMAN RANDY

FORBES HAS 64 CO-SPONSORS FROM

BOTH PARTIES.

> PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS IS

ABOUT A YEAR AWAY.

THE SUBJECT OF A HIGH PROFILE

DEBATE AT REGENT UNIVERSITY.

IT IS CALLED CLASH OF THE

TITANS, IT PITS HEAVY WEIGHTS

AGAINST EACH OTHER.

NO GOUGING, BITING, NO

KICKING AND YOU MAINTAIN

CIVILITY.

YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A

WONDERFUL DEBATE AND HOPE THEY

COME UP WITH SOLUTIONS TO

AMERICA'S DEBT PROBLEMS.

THE REPUBLICANS WANT IT

SMALLER, LESS SPENDING, LOWER

TAXES AND FEWER REGULATIONS,

WHILE THE DEMOCRATS WANT BIGGER

GOVERNMENT AND MORE SPENDING TO

SPUR GROWTH.

WHAT ABOUT THE FAMOUS

'OBAMACARE', TRUTH IS IT ALLOWS

BUSINESSES TO DO SOMETHING LIKE

NEVER BEFORE.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE NUMBER OF

PEOPLE AND IF DR. SUMMERS A

RIGHT.

WE'LL HAVE A TRILLION AND A HALF

OR 2 TRILLION DOLLAR TAB OVER

THE NEXT 10 YEARS FOR HALF OF

THE PROGRAM.

WE HAVE TO REPEAL 'OBAMACARE'.

TONIGHT'S AUDIENCE HEARD TWO

DISTINCTLY PLANS ON HOW TO

REVITALIZE AMERICA'S ECONOMY.

THERE IS ONE THING THESE TITANS

CAN AGREE UPON, AMERICA IS ON A

FINANCIAL PATH UNSUSTAINABLE.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

TODAY THE WORLD MARKS THE

LIKELY BIRTH OF THE 7 BILLIONTH

PERSON.

IT IS GIVING SOME A CHANCE TO

PUSH THE PANIC BUTTON.

OTHERS SAYING THE PLANET'S

BIGGEST PROBLEM IS A DECLINE OF

POPULATION.

REPORTER: GLOBAL POPULATION

PERCOLATING DOUBLING IN 40

YEARS.

A NEW DOCUMENTARY COMES OUT AS

THE 7TH BILLIONTH PERSON IS

BORN.

SAYING THE EARTH CAN'T HANDLE.

WE KEEP THINKING WE CAN GROW

FOREVER.

THE RESOURCE LIMITATION IS, IS

UPON US.

HUMAN BEINGS HAVE USED MORE

NATURAL RESOURCES SINCE THE END

OF WORLD WAR II THAN IN ALL OF

HUMAN HISTORY.

GROWTH BUSTERS PUT OUT A

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT IN

WHICH IT ASKED EACH PERSON TO

LIMIT THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN.

PLEASE CONSIDER THE PLANET

WHEN YOU ARE PLANNING A FAMILY.

LET'S CREATE A MAGNIFICENT

FUTURE FOR FEWER CHILDREN.

STEPHEN MOSHER SAYS THEY HAVE

IT ALL WRONG AND UNDERPOPULATION

IS GOING TO CAUSE MORE CRISES.

TOO FEW PEOPLE TO BUY HOMES

AND CARS.

WHY IS GREECE RIOTING?

THERE ARE TOO FEW YOUNG PEOPLE.

MOSHER SAYS AMERICA IS

MANAGING TO REPLACE ITS

POPULATION.

IT WILL GROW DIRE IN SOME

EUROPEAN NATIONS.

PEOPLE IN ITALY AND SPAIN

AVERAGING ONE PER COUPLE AND

HALF THE SIZE OF THE PREVIOUS

POPULATION.

IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG TO CUT YOUR

POPULATION IN HALF AND HALF

AGAIN.

THERE ARE GOING TO BE FEWER

ITALIA

ITALIANS.

IF THEY DON'T START REPRODUCING,

THEY ARE GONE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

> STATE TREASURY MIXUP

RESULTED IN QUITE A SURPRISE FOR

A CHURCH IN WISCONSIN.

THEY TOOK INVENTORY OF SAVINGS

BONDS AND DOZENS MEANT TO GO TO

TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH 13 YEARS

AGO.

A FORMER MEMBER LEFT THEM WHEN

SHE DIE.

THE WISCONSIN STATE PRESENTED

THEM WITH A CHECK FOR $10,000.

I AM SO PROUD AND PLEASED AND

SO THANKFUL TO THE LORD TO BE

ABLE TO PRESENT THIS CHECK TO

THIS WONDERFUL CHURCH.

[APPLAUSE].

WAY BACK THEN SHE WAS

THINKING OF HER CONGREGATION IN

THIS WAY SHE COULD BLESS US IN

THE FUTURE.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.

PASTOR DOUG ENGLEBROOK SAYS THE

CHURCH WILL USE THE MONEY TO

INSTALL AN AIR CONDITIONING

UNIT.

THEY HAD BEEN USING CEILING FANS

TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE SUMMER.

> HUNDREDS OF HUNTERS, HIKE RS

AND CLIMBERS HEAD OUT TO THE

WILLEDNESS.

SOME GET LOSTED OR INJURED.

THEIR RESCUERS ARE FROM THE SAME

PLACES THAT RESCUE SOLDIERS.

THE OPENING DAY OF DEER

SEASON.

WITH SO MANY PEOPLE IN SEARCH OF

A TROPHY, SOMEBODY IS BOUND TO

GET HURT.

DEPENDING UPON WHERE YOU LIVE,

MANY SEARCH AND RESCUE OPTIONS.

THE JOB MIGHT FALL TO AMERICA'S

MOST HIGHLY TRAINED FIRST

RESPONDERS, AIR FORCE

PARARESCUE.

IT IS ONE OF THE BUSIEST RESCUE

FORCES, MADE UP OF HIGHLY

TRAINED RESCUE OFFICERS AND

TRAIN ON AN INCREDIBLE RANGE AND

SKILL TO GET PEOPLE OUT TO

SAFETY.

WHEN THEY CALL US, EVERYONE

ELSE HAS BEEN CALLED AND SAID

NO.

WHEN THE BEEPER GOES OFF OR CELL

PHONE RINGS, NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU

ARE GOING TO GET, FLYING IN FROM

A HELICOPTER, OR SWIMMING IN

FROM A WATER VESSEL TO RESCUE OR

RECOVER REMAINS OR SENSITIVE

MATERIAL.

ALL THOSE SKILLS COME IN

HANDY IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.

IN THE REAL ZONE, THEIR SKILLS

ARE COMED WITH ENEMY FIRE.

THEY GO BY THE CALL ZONE PAID

ROWS.

THEIR WILLINGNESS TO GO INTO THE

HOTTEST LANDING ZONES WITH GUNS

BLAZING IF NECESSARY.

WE GO IN WITH GUNS ON OUR

AIRCRAFT AND FULLLY ARMED.

WE ARE A COMBAT FORCE, WE CAN

FIGHT TO OUR OBJECTIVE, SECURE

IT AND COME BACK.

THESE MEN ALL HAVE PLENTY OF

COMBAT EXPERIENCE.

EACH HAS TO FIND HIS OWN WAY TO

WORK THROUGH THE STRESS WHEN HE

RETURNS HOME.

TRANSITIONING BACK INTO A

FAMILY LIFE AS A DAD AND FAMILY.

IF SOMEBODY IS IN A RUSH IN RUSH

HOUR TRAFFIC, WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN

OVERSEAS PULLING SOLDIERS OFF

THE FRONT LINE OR DEALING WITH

DEAD AMERICANS.

THAT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST

ASPECTS TO ASSIST PEOPLE IN

EVERYDAY LIFE.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT WE

DEAL WITH ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS.

AIR FORCE PARARESCUE MEN HAVE

BEEN IN HARM'S WAY RESPONDING TO

HELP BROTHERS ON THE GROUND.

MORE THAN TEN AIRMEN HAVE DIED

IN THE LINE OF DUTY.

THIS SACRIFICE UNDERSCORES THEIR

DEPTH OF OF THEIR EQUIPMENT TO

LIVE UP TO THE MOTTO THAT OTHERS

WILL LIVE.

FROM ANCHORAGE, ALASKA, I AM

CHUCK HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

JERUSALEM IS KNOWN BY MANY AS

THE HOLY CITY AND FOR GOOD

REASON.

ARCHAEOLOGIST HAVE UNEARTHED

ANOTHER TINY TOKEN, THIS BOX

FOUND IN JERUSALEM MADE OF BONE

AND LESS THAN ONE INCH SQUARE.

INSIDE ARE TWO PORTRAITS TO BE

JESUS AND MARY DATING BACK TO

THE 6TH CENTURY.

IT WAS FOUND NEARBY A STREET

AT THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

IT IS VERY UNIQUE.

IT IS PRESERVED.

ARCHAEOLOGIST WITH THE ISRAEL

ANTIQUITIES SAYS THE BOX IS A

FIRST EXAMPLE OF ITS KIND.

IT MAKES ME WONDER IF FOLKS

WITH THE ANTIQUITIES AUTHORITY

ARE RESPONDING TO THE CHRISTIAN

FAITH BY WHAT THEY DISCOVER.

THAT IS A GOOD POINT.

SO SHINY AND BEAUTIFUL.

GOOD FOR THEM.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT FOR

THIS EDITION OF "NEWSWATCH."

GOOD NIGHT."
