APPROVE THE RELEASE OF THE MAN

CONVI

CONVICT

CONVICTED OF THE 1993 WORLD

TRADE CENTER ATTACK.

THE BOTCHED GUN SMUGGLING

CRACK DOWN.

IF DISASTER STRIKES ONE GROUP

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

A U.S. CONGRESSMAN SAY IT IS

WHITE HOUSE IS CONSIDERING THE

RELEASE OF THE MAN CONVICTED OF

COMMITTING THE FIRST TERRORIST

ATTACK. EGYPT ASKED FOR

SHEIK OMAR.

PETER KING SAYS THE

ADMINISTRATION IS WEIGHING THE

POSSIBLE.

JOHN WAAGE HAS MORE IN TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

OFFICIALS IN SOME ARAB

CAPITOLS SAY THE ANGER THAT LET

TO U.S. AMBASSADOR CHRIS

STEPHENS WAS SPARKED BY MUSLIM

DEMANDS FOR THE RELEASE OF BLIND

SHEIK OMAR.

74-YEAR-OLD ROCKMAN IS BEING

HELD IN NORTH CAROLINA.

HE WAS CONVICTED OF PLOTTING

FIRST TERRORIST ATTACK ON WORLD

TERRORIST IN 1993, TRUCK BOMBING

THAT KILLED SIX PEOPLE AND

INJURED MORE THAN A THOUSAND.

ROCKMAN IS POPULAR AND PRESIDENT

MORSI HAS VOWED TO PUSH FOR HIS

FREEDOM.

WHITE HOUSE, STATE DEPARTMENT

AND JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAVE

ISSUED STATEMENTS FLATLY DENYING

CONSIDERING HIS RELEASE.

PETER KING SENT LEADERS TO ERIC

HOLDER AND HILARY CLINTON,

SAYING THE RELEASE OF HIM WOULD

BE SEEN AS A SIGN OF WEAKNESS

AND LACK OF RESOLVE BY THE

UNITED STATES AND ITS PRESIDENT.

ERICK STAKELBECK, WHY WOULD

THE OBAMA CONSIDER SENDING

ROCKMAN BACK TO EGYPT? LEE,

THEY THINK THIS IS GOING TO

APPEASE THE MUSLIM WORLD.

OVER RIOTS, ONE OF THE MAY

THINGS SPURRING THIS ON, LEE,

ACCORDING TO U.S. INTELLIGENCE

REPORTS, ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS

SPURRING ON THESE RIOTS IS NOT

ANIT-ISLAM FILM.

IT IS THE BLIND SHEIK, OMAR

ABDELL ROCKMAN, HE IS IN A SUPER

MAX PRISON.

THEY WANT HIM OUT.

THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR

YEARS, LEE.

OSAMA BIN LADEN USED TO CALL FOR

THE RELEASE OF THE BLIND SHEIK.

NOW MORSI IS CALLING FOR THE

RELEASE OF THE BLIND SHEIK.

APPARENTLY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION THINKS IF THEY

LET GO ONE OF THE TOP TERRORISTS

THEY WILL LEAVE US ALONE.

APPEASEMENT, DOES IT WORK?

IT IS LIKE FEEDING A

CROCODILE, THEY WANT MORE AND

MORE.

IT FAILED IN WORLD WAR II WITH A

TOT

TOTALITARI

TOTALITARIAN, WE THOUGHT IT

WOULD APPEASE HITLER.

HE WANTED MORE, MORE, MORE, THAT

IS HOW ISLAMIST ARE, LEE.

IF WE RELEASE BLIND, SHEIK THEY

WILL BE ASKING FOR RELEASE OF

KHALID SHEIK MOHAMMED.

ERICK, YOU SAID THIS IS THE REAL

REASON FOR THE PROTESTS IN

EGYPT.

IT WOULD SEEM STRANGE THE

PROTESTERS WOULD NOT MAKE CLEAR

WHY THEY ARE PROTESTING.

LEE, A FEW THINGS, THE DAY

BEFORE THEY BROKE OUT, ALL OVER

THESE JIHADIST MESSAGE BOARDS

ONLINE.

THEY WERE SAYING WE WANT THE

BLIND SHEIK RELEASE, IF NOT, WE

WILL BURN THE EMBASSY IN EGYPT.

IT HAPPENED IN LIBYA.

THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING FOR

RELEASE TIME AND TIME AGAIN.

AL-QAEDA LEADERS, FREQUENTLY

HAVE CALLED ON THE U.S.

COMMANDED U.S. TO RELEASE THIS

GUY.

ERICK, WHY IS HE SO IMPORTANT?

HE IS THE EYED LOGICAL POWER

HOUSES, LEE.

THIS IS THE GUY WHO IS THE

SPIRITUAL ADVISER TO THE 1993

WORLD TRADE CENTER BOMBERS.

SPIRITUAL ADVISER TO NONE OTHER

THAN OSAMA BIN LADEN.

ALSO INVOLVED IN 1981

ASSASSINATION OF EGYPTIAN

PRESIDENT AN WAR SADAD.

MAJOR STREET CREDIT, LEE.

A REAL STRONG, STRONG FIGURE.

RESPECTED AMONG ISLAMIST TO

AL-QAEDA AND BEYOND.

THEY CAN ALL AGREE THEY LOVE THE

BLIND SHEIK.

CAN YOU KEEP US POSTED?

LEE?

ABSOLUTELY.

REPUBLICAN S AND DEMOCRATS A

REPORT FOR THE FAST AND FURIOUS.

NOT FOR THE SAME REASONS.

IT CLEARS ERIC HOLDER.

DEMOCRATS DEFENDED HOLDER TODAY

SUGGESTING HE WAS WRONGLY

PURSUED AND CONSEQUENTLY HELD IN

CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS.

REPUBLICANS SAY IT WAS

JUSTIFIED.

I HATE TO MAKE THE RECORD

CLEARER.

HE WAS NEVER HELD IN CONTEMPT OF

CONGRESS BECAUSE HE SANCTIONED

GUN WALKING, IT WAS BECAUSE HE

THWARTED OUR ATTEMPTED.

A TEXAS CHEER LEADING SQUAD

IS BANNED FROM MAKING RUN

THROUGH BANNERS WITH SCRIPTURES

ON THEM.

IS SUPERINTENDENT MADE A

DECISION AFTER I CAN DO ALL

THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH

STRENGTHENS ME.

IN THE TEXAS TOWN ARE STANDING

BEHIND THEIR THEER CHEER

LEADERS.

THEIR RELIGIOUS SPEECH CAN'T BE

CENSORED.

A PENNSYLVANIA SCHOOL BOARD

IS REPLACING A PRAYER WITH A

MOMENT OF SILENCE.

THE WISCONSIN BASED FREEDOM OF

RELIGION THREATENED TO SUE.

AT FIRST THE SCHOOL BOARD

REFUSED SUPERINTENDENT RICHARD

MECKESTOR RELENTED AFTER

SUGGESTING THE DISTRICT WOULD

LOSE.

? IT IS CONSTITUTION WEEK AT

THE U.S. CAPITOL.

CONGRESS ESTABLISHED THE WEEK TO

LEARN MORE ABOUT CONSTITUTION.

BEGINS ON SEPTEMBER 17TH, THE

DAY OUR FOREFATHERS SIGNED THE

CHARTER BACK IN 1787.

CAPITOL HAS EXHIBITS AND

DOCUMENTS ON DISPLAY.

JOINING US TO TALK MORE IS DR.

JERSAN, DEAN OF THE COLLEGE OF

SCIENCES AND ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

OF GOVERNMENT.

DR. MORENO, IS THE CONSTITUTION

BEING OVERLOOKED?

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT DEBATES.

OUR COUNTRY LIKES A MORAL

COMPASS.

THE CONSTITUTION HOLDS US

TOGETHER.

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO IT TO HOW TO

MAKE SENSE.

THE CONSTITUTION IS AT THE

CENTER OF HOTLY CONTESTED

ISSUES.

THE STORY LEE REPORTED OUT OF

TEXAS ABOUT THE CHEER LEADERS,

PUTTING SCRIPTURES ON THEIR

SIGNS, DOES THE CONSTITUTION SAY

THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THAT?

CERTAINLY THE COURT IS

INTERPRETING STUDENTS HAVE THE

ABILITY TO HAVE FREE SPEECH IN

HIGH SCHOOLS AND PUBLIC SCHOOLS

AND ONLY BARRED THAT IN TERMS OF

SPEECH THAT PROTECTS OR ADVANCES

ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES.

YOU HEAR ABOUT THE GRADUATION

SPEECHES AND VALEDICTORIANS.

THE COURT COULD PERCEIVE THE

RIGHTS AREN'T PROTECTED.

IN PENNSYLVANIA WE REPORTED

THE SCHOOL BOARD CHANGED PRAYER

TO A MOMENT OF SILENCE BECAUSE

THEY FEARED LEGAL ACTION.

WOULD THEY HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED?

IT IS A FISCAL DECISION AND

LEGAL ONE. I DON'T THINK IT

SHOULD HAVE BEEN DROPPED.

A PUBLIC SCHOOL BOARD AN

EXTENSION OF THE SCHOOL BOARD?

IF IT IS A DELIBERATE PUBLIC

BODY, LEGISLATIVE PRAYERS ARE

PROTECTED.

HOW DO YOU INTERPRET?

IS IT AN EXTENSION?

THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE BROUGHT THIS

SO QUICKLY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

COMING UP, PREPPING FOR THE

WORST.

INSIDE THE WORLD OF PREPPERS.

FLUSH

WE HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU

TONIGHT, ARE YOU READY FOR AN

ECONOMIC CRISIS OR NATURAL

DISASTER?

THEY ARE CALLED PREPPERS.

THEY ARE GROWING IN NUMBER.

CHUCK HOLTON HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: WHEN AN UNEXPECTED

POWER STORM KNOCKED OUT POWER IN

JULY, OVER FOUR MILLION PEOPLE

WENT WITHOUT POWER FOR UP TO

FOUR WEEKS.

A SEVERE DROUGHT IS PUTTING A

SERIOUS STRAIN CIVIL UNRESTS

STALKING UP FOR THE UNEXPECTED

IS LOOKING SMARTER ALL THE TIME.

SMALL BUT GROWING SEGMENT OF OUR

SOCIETY IS ASKING THE QUESTION,

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE LIGHTS GO

OUT FOR MORE THAN A FEW DAYS?

MANY OF THE PREPPERS THINK THE

RECORD SETTING BLACKOUT COULD BE

A PREVIEW OF THINGS TO COME.

WE CAN HAVE AN ECONOMIC

ATTACK, TERRORIST ATTACKS,

NATURAL DISASTER, EARTHQUAKES,

TSUNAMIS.

KEITH IS A DIE HARD PREPPER.

HE STARTED A BUSINESS HELPING

OTHERS.

PEOPLE FIGURE SINCE NOTHING

HAS HAPPENED IN X AMOUNT OF

YEARS, NOTHING BAD WILL EVER

HAPPEN.

SURVIVALISTS ARE PORTRAYED

CRAZY.

THIS WEEKEND IN THE MOUNTAINS

OF NORTH CAROLINA, A COUPLE OF

THOUSAND PEOPLE GOT TOGETHER AT

THE CAROLINA READYNESS.

IT IS VERY ENVIRONMENTAL,

VERY GREEN.

TAKES US OFF OF FOSSIL FUELS.

JOE HENDERSON IS THE OWNER OF

GREEN GOLD HUNTERS.

HIS FILTRATION SYSTEM RUN A

VEHICLE WITHOUT FOREIGN OIL.

IF ANYBODY HAS A DIESEL

ENGINE, YOU CAN USE COOKING OIL

AS AN ALTERNATIVE FUEL.

GO TO THE RESTAURANT HERE IN

ASHVILLE, INDIAN RESTAURANT,

THIS IS THEIR USED COOKING OIL.

WE RAN IT THROUGH OUR FILTER

SYSTEM, NOW WE HAVE A NICE

ALTERNATIVE FUEL I'LL PUT IN MY

TANK.

THIS IS BEING HELPED IN

TELEVISION SHOWS.

DOOMSDAY PREPPERS IS THE

HIGHEST RATED SHOW EVER ON

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.

IT IS A SHOW ABOUT YOUR AVERAGE

AMERICAN FAMILY, UNIQUE PEOPLE

PREPPING FOR ANY OF LIFE'S

UNCERTAINTY, WHETHER IT BE AN

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

ONE OF THE CHALLENGES FOR THE

SHOW IS THAT MOST PREPPERS

AREN'T EAGER TO ADVERTISE THEIR

STOCK PILES OF SUPPLIES.

SINCE THE BOTTOM DROPS OUT,

LEWDING COULD BE A REAL PROBLEM.

WE UNDERSTAND IT COULD BE A

RISK TO PEOPLE BUT WE RESPECT

PEOPLE'S PRIVACY.

ON THE SHOW WE DON'T HAVE TO SAY

WHERE YOU ARE FROM.

WE TRY TO GET IN THE LIVES OF

DIVERSE PREPPERS AND THEY CAN

LEARN MORE.

KEITH IETEN SAYS IT HAS

NOTHING TO DO WITH CANNED FOOD

OR BOTTLES LD WATER.

IF YOU BUILD A SOLID

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST,

AFTER THAT, GET FOOD AND WATER

STORED AWAY, IT WILL ALL FALL

INTO PLACE.

YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO FEED

YOURSELF, FEED YOUR FAMILY, HELP

A NEIGHBOR, HELP A FRIEND.

100 YEARS AGO IT WASN'T

STRANGE FOR A FAMILY TO HAVE A

BASEMENT FULL OF FOOD.

MOST PEOPLE HAVE LESS THAN THREE

DAYS SUPPLY AND MANY HAVE NO

EMERGENCY SUPPLIES OR EVEN A

FIRST AID KID.

WITH INFRASTRUCTURE OF AMERICA

GETTING MORE FRAGILE, MAYBE IT

IS NOT A BAD IDEA.

I AM CHUCK HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, TOOLS OF THE TRADE,

CHUCK IS BACK TO SHOW US

PREPPERS MUST HAVES.

BEFORE THE BREAK, ALWAYS

READY FOR ANYTHING CHUCK HOLTON

SHOWED US THE WORLD OF PREPPERS.

I TALKED WITH CHUCK.

HE SHOWED ME PRODUCTS ON EVERY

PREPPER'S MUST HAVE LIST.

TAKE A LOOK.

TELL US MORE ABOUT THESE

THINGS THAT YOU HAVE IN FRONT OF

US.

CHUCK, THE DRY RUN YOU HAD JUST

A FEW WEEKS AGO WHEN POWER WENT

OUT, IT WAS AN EXCELLENT

OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HOW IMPORTANT

THIS WAS.

THE THING THAT WAS SURPRISING

WAS THIS ITEM.

A BACKPACKING STOVE MADE BY BIO

LIGHT.

IT BURNS WOOD.

YOU PUT IT IN THERE AND PUSH

THIS BUTTON ON THE FRONT.

YOU CAN PLUG YOUR PHONE IN AND

CHARGE YOUR PHONE FROM THE HEAT

OF THE FIRE.

AND YOU CAN TOOK ON IT.

WE TOOK IT BACKPACKING AND IT

WAS FANTASTIC.

IT REALLY WORKS.

WHAT IS THIS OVER HERE?

GOELDZ ZERO SOLAR GENERATOR.

HERE IS FOLDING SOLAR PANEL.

THIS OPENS UP LIKE A BRIEFCASE,

PLUGS IN AND CHARGES THIS

BATTERY.

YOU CAN PLUG ALL SORTS OF THINGS

INTO THE PLUG, USB PORT.

IT HAS A LIGHT THAT COMES WITH

IT, YOU CAN RUN THE LIGHT ORPHAN

ESSENTIALS OFF OF THIS, VERY

GOOD TO HAVE.

IT IS NOT THAT EXPENSIVE, JUST A

COUPLE OF HUNDRED DOLLARS.

NONE OF US WANT TO GO HUNGRY.

YOU HAVE ALL KINDS OF THINGS,

CANNED BUTTER.

I SUGGEST PEOPLE BY MORE OF

WHAT THEY ALREADY EAT.

IF THE POWER WENT OUT FOR

SEVERAL WEEKS, THINGS THAT ARE

NORMAL

NORMALLY REFRIGERATOR.

WE HAVE USED IT AT HOME WHEN WE

WOULD RUN OUT.

TASTES GOOD?

TASTES GREAT.

THIS IS COOKED BACON, PUT INTO A

CAN.

IT WILL LAST 10 YEARS THIS WAY,

SEALED.

IF YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED

BUT YOU DON'T HAVE BACON, DO YOU

WANT TO SURVIVE?

YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE IMPORTANT

STUFF.

POWDERED EGGS?

FREEZE-DRIED.

SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH BACON.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE IS WELL KNOWN.

DOING IT FOR YEARS.

THAT CAN IS SUPPOSED TO LAST 25

YEARS, NITROGEN PACKED AND STILL

BE NUTRITIOUS. ONE THING YOU

DON'T HAVE IS A WEAPON.

YOU BELIEVE WEAPONS ARE

IMPORTANT?

WITHIN 12 HOURS OF POWER

GOING OUT THERE WAS LEWDING

ALREADY TAKING PLACE.

SO MANY PEOPLE NOT PREPARED THAT

THEY ARE GOING TO FEEL LIKE THE

ONLY RESORT THEY HAVE IF THE

POWER GOES DOWN IS TO STEAL FROM

SOMEBODY ELSE.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROTECT YOUR

FAMILY, ALSO IMPORTANT TO HAVE A

LITTLE EXTRA TO GIVE TO PEOPLE

IN NEED.

THIS IS A GREAT -- WHEN ENERGY

STRIKES, THAT IS THE BEST TIME

THAT CHRISTIANS CAN SHINE AND

SHOW BY OUR GENEROSITY, THE LOVE

OF CHRIST.

CHUCK, A LOT OF PEOPLE

WATCHING THIS, I DON'T WANT TO

BE VIEWED BY MY NEIGHBORS AS A

NUT.

HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THAT?

EVEN 50 YEARS AGO IT WASN'T

CONSIDERED CRAZY.

WHY IS IT CRAZY TO HAVE A COUPLE

OF WEEKS OF FOOD IN YOUR

BASEMENT?

JUST BECAUSE OUR SYSTEM HAS

BECOME MADE SO EFFICIENT DOESN'T

MEAN IT IS NOT COMPLEX.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT OUR JUST IN

TIME DELIVERY SYSTEM IS.

FRAGILE.

THERE IS SO MANY DIFFERENT

REASONS WHY SOMETHING COULD

HAPPEN AND YOU COULD BE WITHOUT

FOOD.

DO YOU, WOULD IT BE WORTH YOUR

NEIGHBORS THINKING YOU ARE A

LITTLE STRANGE TO KNOW YOUR

FAMILY IS TAKEN CARE OF IF THE

LIGHTS GO OUT?

DO YOU PROVIDE RESOURCES AND

INFORMATION ON A FAMILY, I WANT

TO DO THIS, HOW DO I GET

STARTED.

THERE ARE THESE SEMINARS

GOING ON ALL OVER THE COUNTRY

ABOUT PREPAREDNESS.

CBN HAS PUT UP ON THEIR WEBSITE

A TIP SHEET PEOPLE CAN DOWNLOAD.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, I WAS

THINKING ABOUT COMING OVER AND

JOINING YOU AT YOUR UNDISCLOSED

LOCATION.

I THINK I NEED TO GET MOTIVATED

TO DO IT MYSELF.

THAT'S RIGHT.

JUST BRING YOUR GUNS.

[LAUGHTER].

WE APPRECIATE YOU SO MUCH.

ENJOYED IT.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

FINALLY TONIGHTED PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN CREATED QUITE A

STIR WITH A CAMPAIGN FUND

RAISING POSTER.

A POSTER OF A FLAG, THE BLUE

STAR FIELD IS REPLACED BY

OBAMA'S O CAMPAIGN LOGO.

IT SHOWS THE PRESIDENT BEING

GREATER THAN THE PEOPLE

REPRESENTED BY THE STARS.

MR. OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN SAID THERE

ARE NO RED STATES OR BLUE

STATES, ONLY UNITED STATES.

THE PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN IS

SELLING THEM FROM HIS OFFICIAL

STORE SITE FOR $35.
