PUSHING THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD'S

AGENDA.

EMERGENCY DRINK EMERGENCY.

A NEW LAWSUIT SAYS THEY ARE

DEADLY.

STIMULATING PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE

SAFE TO DRINK.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." IT IS THE FINAL

PUSH IN THE RACE FOR THE WHITE

HOUSE.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM LEE

WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

LESS THAN TWO WEEKS UNTIL

ELECTION DAY, PRESIDENT OBAMA

AND REPUBLICAN CHALLENGER MITT

ROMNEY ARE CRISSCROSSING CAN

COUNTRY.

THEIR SCHEDULES JAM PACKED.

ROMNEY HITTING FIVE STATES IN 48

HOURS, OBAMA HITTING SEVEN.

TARGET UNDECIDED VOTERS.

WE ARE ACCUSTOM TO SEEING

POLITICIANS CHANGE THEIR

POSITIONS FROM LIKE FOUR YEARS,

AGO.

WE ARE NOT ACCUSTOM TO SEEING

POLITICIANS CHANGE FROM FOUR

DAYS AGO.

HE HAS BEEN REDUCED TO WORD

GAMES OF VARIOUS KINDS.

ATTACKS ON ME ARE NOT MY AGENDA.

THE CANDIDATES WILL BE

FOCUSSING ON NEVADA, COLORADO,

OHIO, IOWA, NEW HAMPSHIRE,

FLORIDA, AND VIRGINIA.

ONE VOTER GROUP BOTH CANDIDATES

ARE TRYING TO WIN OVER IS

CATHOLICS.

A NEW SURVEY FINDS EVEN

WITHIN THAT GROUP FOLKS BASE

THEIR VOTES ON DIFFERENT ISSUES.

MANY CATHOLICS ARE PRO-LIFE,

OTHER ISSUES MAYBE MORE

IMPORTANT AT THE POLLS.

PAUL STRAND HAS MORE.

REPORTER: DR. ROBERT JONES

HELPED PUT TOGETHER THIS NEW

NATIONAL SURVEY.

IT HAD CATHOLICS BELIEVE WHICH

ISSUE THEY WOULD RATHER HAVE

THEIR CHURCH DEAL WITH SOCIAL

JUSTICE OR LIFE.

62 PERCENT PUT MORE EMPHASIS

ON SOCIAL JUSTICE TO TAKE CARE

OF THE POOR, 31 PERCENT SAID THE

OPPOSITE.

INDICATES THERE IS NO

AUTOMATIC BIG RIGHT TO LIFE

VOTE.

SOCIAL JUSTICE CATHOLICS ARE

MORE LIKELY TO BE OBAMA VOTERS.

IN ROMNEY'S CASE WHY WAS

CHRISTIANS, OBAMA'S MINORITY

CHRISTIANS.

ROMNEY HAS THREE QUARTERS

MADE UP OF A WHITE CHRISTIANS.

OBAMA HAS LESS THAN FOUR IN 10

AND MANY MORE MINORITY

CHRISTIANS.

JONES TOLD CBN NEWS, NUMBER

OF RELIGIOUSLY AFFILIATED

AMERICANS HAS DOUBLED FROM 7-19%

OF THE POPULATION.

THEY LEAN HEAVILY DEMOCRATIC

WHILE WHITE EVANGELICALS LEAN

REPUBLICAN.

GOOD NEWS FOR REPUBLICANS,

UNAFFILIATED VOTE IN MUCH

SMALLER NUMBERS, PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

FASCINATING.

LET'S EXPLORE THIS MORE WITH A

POLITICAL ANALYST JOHN WAAGE.

A LOT OF EMPHASIS ON CATHOLIC

VOTERS.

YOU SAY EVANGELICALS WE NEED TO

WATCH, WHY?

THANK YOU NEW I SAW AN

INTERESTING NUMBER IN THE

BROOKING'S INSTITUTE.

WHY EVANGELICAL VOTERS ARE 76%

FOR ROMNEY.

GEORGE W. BUSH GOT 67 AND 63%.

IT IS TRUE THE CATHOLIC DIVISION

AND WHO THEY VOTE FOR IS

IMPORTANT.

EVANGELICALS, IF IT IS A 76%

TOTAL FOR ROMNEY AND SHOW UP AT

THE POLLS, THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT

IMPACT.

BODES WELL FOR ROMNEY.

JOHN, MORE AND MORE AMERICANS

THESE DAYS SAY THEY HAVE NO

RELIGIOUS AFFILIATIONS, WHAT DO

YOU MAKE OF THAT?

IT IS IN KEEPING WITH WHAT WE

HAVE SEEN IN THE COUNTRY AND

SOCIETY.

THOSE NUMBERS VOTE IN HUGE

NUMBERS FOR THE LEFT, FOR THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND FOR

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

QUESTION IS, ARE THEY GOING TO

SHOW UP?

TRADITIONALLY SPEAKING AS PAUL

SAID IN HIS STORY, THE NUNS, NO

RELIGION, THEY DON'T SHOW UP AT

THE POLLS.

ARE THEY GOING TO HAVE THE KIND

OF SPARK THEY HAD IN 2008 THAT

PRODUCE SUCH A VICTORY FOR

OBAMA.

LATEST RASMUSSEN POLL OUT

SHOWS IN THE KEY SWING STATE OF

OHIO IT IS A TIE 48-48 IS THAT

RIGHT?

WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT

OHIO?

THAT THE POST DEBATE BOUNCE

THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA MIGHT HAVE

GOTTEN DIDN'T REALLY HAPPEN.

HE HAS LED IN OHIO.

WE ARE GOING WITH THE TREND

FROM OCTOBER 3RD WHEN ROMNEY WON

THE FIRST DEBATE.

MOVEMENT HAS BEEN TOWARD ROMNEY.

ANOTHER THING IN THE REAL CLEAR

POLITICS, ELECTORAL MAP,

MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA HAVE

SHIFTED TOSS UP FROM LEANS

OBAMA.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A GENERAL

SHIFT TOWARD ROMNEY.

STILL UP IN THE AIR IN ALL THOSE

STATES.

YOU TOLD ME YOU WERE GOING TO

KEEP AN ATTENTION ON WHICH

STATES ROMNEY IS GOING TO.

HOW MANY STATES THEY ARE

VISITING, IF YOU INCLUDE

MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN AND A

STATE LIKE NEW JERSEY AND

PENNSYLVANIA THAT MEANS THE

SCOPE FOR ROMNEY IS BROADENING.

THIS IS GETTING EXCITING.

WE LIKE SPORTS AND FOOTBALL, IT

IS LIKE AN ATHLETIC CONTEST.

IT IS.

IT IS GOING TO KEEP THAT

INTENSITY FOR 13 DAYS.

THANKS, JOHN.

INDIANA SENATE CANDIDATE

STANDING BY COMMENTS HE MADE

ABOUT RAPE AND PREGNANCY.

MITT ROMNEY AND OTHER TOP

REPUBLICANS DISTANCING HIMSELF

FROM HIS STANCE.

RICHARD MOURDOCK WAS ASKED IF

ABORTION SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN

RAPE?

I BELIEVE LIFE BEGINS IN

CONCEPTION EVEN IN THE HORRIBLE

SITUATION OF RAPE, IT IS

SOMETHING GOD INTENDED TO

HAPPEN.

AFTER THE DEBATE HE DOESN'T

BELIEVE ANY GOD WOULD INTEND

THAT TO HAPPEN.

HE WON'T APOLOGIZE FOR HIS

COMMENTS SAYING I SPOKE FROM MY

HEART.

I WOULD BE LESS THAN FAITHFUL IF

I SAID ANYTHING OTHER THAN LIFE

IS PRECIOUS.

I BELIEVE IT IS A GIFT FROM GOD.

EGYPT WARNS MORSI AND MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD ARE METH THOD CLI

THEY ARE TAKING OVER ALL THE

POWERS IN EGYPT, SENDING AWAY

THE OTHERS.

ONLY OPPOSITION FROM THE JUDGES.

THEY MEAN BUSINESS.

THEIR BUSINESS IS RELIGIOUS.

THEIR GOAL IS TO INSTITUTE

ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW.

SOME BELIEVE THE LONG RANGE

IMPLICATIONS FOR ISRAEL ARE

OMINOUS.

SOME SAY WAGING JIHAD TO

RECAPTURE IS THE DUTY OF ALL

MUSLIM.

MUSLIMS 'S IDEOLOGY IS TO

WIPE ALL THE JEWS OFF THE MAP.

WE HAVE A MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

DICTATORSHIP PUSHED ON AND

SOMETIMES WORKING WITH THE MORE

RADICALS.

THIS IS AN ANTI-SEMITIC

GOVERNMENT WHOSE LEADERS WANT TO

COMMIT GENOCIDE ON THE JEWS.

THEIR GOALS ARE EASY TO

UNDERSTAND.

SELDOM REPORTED BY THE MEDIA.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS READ

SPEECHES AND PUBLICATIONS.

IT IS NOT HIDDEN.

IT DOESN'T GET INTO THE MASS

MEDIA IN THE UNITED STATES

WHICH, CONCEALS, WHITEWASHES

THIS TO A RIDICULOUS EXTEND.

RUBEN SAYS ONE OF THE GOALS

IS TO DRIVE THE U.S. OUT OF THE

U.S. CONGRESSMAN TRENT FRANK

SAYS THAT IS WHY THE U.S. SHOULD

CONSIDER ANY FOREIGN AID.

THIS ADMINISTRATION SHOULD BE

CLEAR EGYPT SHOULD NOT GET

ADDITIONAL SUPPORT FROM THE

UNITED STATES UNTIL THEY MEET

CRITICAL GUIDELINES OF

RECOGNIZING THEIR TREATIES WITH

ISRAEL AND RECOGNIING HUMAN

RIGHTS COMMITMENT.

CHRIS MITCHELL, JERUSALEM CH

AN ATLANTIC CHURCH MAN WAS

SHOT DOWN LEADING THE CAMPUS.

THE SHOOTER IS A FORMER

MAINTENANCE WORKER AT THE

CHURCH, 52-YEAR-OLD FLOYD

PALMER.

22 PEOPLE WERE INSIDE FOR

WEDNESDAY MORNING BIBLE

SHOOTING.

NO OTHERS INJURED AND NO MOTIVE

KNOWN.

ESTIMATED 30,000 PEOPLE ATTEND

THAT CHURCH.

COMING UP, DID CAFFEINE IN AN

ENERGY DRINK CAUSE A GIRL'S

DEATH.

ONE FAMILY SAYS YES.

IT IS TAKING ACTION.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW.

FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION

IS INVESTIGATING REPORTS THAT A

POPULAR DRINK MAYBE ASSOCIATED

WITH FIVE DEATHS.

LORIE JOHNSON JOINS US IN THE

NEWS ROOM WITH MORE.

MONSTER MAKES THE ENERGY

GROUP AND THE FAMILY OF

14-YEAR-OLD MARYLAND GIRL IS

SUING THE COMPANY BECAUSE SHE

DIED AFTER DRINKING TWO CANS IN

A 24 HOUR PERIOD.

SHE DIED OF CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA

DUE TO KAT CAFFEINE TOXICITY.

THE TWO DRINKS CONTAINED 480

MILLIGRAMS OF CAFFEINE.

BLOOD PRESSURE MIGHT GO UP TO

DANGEROUS LEVELS.

IT IS WHY PEOPLE FEEL JITTERY

WHY THEY DRINK TOO MUCH COFFEE

OR COCA-COLA.

MONSTER IS UNAWARE OF ANY

FATALITIES ANYWHERE CAUSED BY

THE DRINKS.

THE LAWYER FOR THE FAMILY HOPES

THEIR CASE WILL KEEP THIS

TRAGEDY FROM HAPPENING TO ANYONE

ELSE.

WENDY?

LORI, A LOT OF ADULTS GO FOR

COFFEE.

WHO IS REALLY DRINKING THESE

KINDS OF ENERGY DRINKS?

I WENT BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL

JUST VISITING.

HIGH SCHOOLERS LOVE ENERGY

DRINKS.

SOME OF THE KIDS I TALK TO DRINK

THEM EVERYDAY, OFTEN MORE THAN

ONE A DAY.

THEY KNOW ALL ABOUT THE

DIFFERENT BRANDS BUT CLEARLY DO

NOT KNOW THEY CAN BE DANGEROUS.

WHAT EXACTLY IS MAKING THEM

SO DANGEROUS?

SIMPLY THE CAFFEINE?

NOT JUST THE CAFFEINE, THEY

HAVE LOTS OF SUGAR, A QUARTER

CUP ON AVERAGE AND MARKETED AS

DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS AND CONTAIN

UNREGULATED HERBAL STIMULANTS

AND B VITAMINS AND CREATES QUITE

A BUZZ AS YOU MIGHT EXPECT.

THAT IS IF YOU HAVE ONE DRINK.

THAT IS NOT USUALLY THE CASE.

ENERGY DRINKS HIGHLY ADDICTIVE.

KIDS ARE DRINKING LOTS OF THEM.

ENERGY DRINKS PACK MORE OF A

PUNCH IF THEY ARE COMBINED WITH

ALCOHOL, PRESCRIPTION DRUGS OR

CAFFEINE FROM OTHER SOURCES LIKE

SODA.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS TO

DRINKING THE ENERGY DRINKS?

THE FACT THAT IT LEAVES YOUR

BODY WANTING MORE.

HIGHLY ADDICTIVE.

I SPOKE TO A PEDIATRICIAN ABOUT

THE EFFECTS OF ENERGY DRINKS.

HERE IS WHAT HE HAD TO SAY.

WELL HE -- OBVIOUSLY WE ARE

HAVING TROUBLE WITH THAT SOUND

BYTE.

HEADACHES AND NAUSEA ASSOCIATED

WITH THESE ENERGY DRINKS.

REAL PROBLEM WITH THE KIDS IS

THAT YOU FEEL SO BAD WHEN YOU

COME DOWN FROM THE ENERGY DRINK,

THAT IS WHEN YOU WANT THAT EXTRA

BOOST FOR MORE.

WHAT THESE KIDS NEED WENDY AND

LEE, A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP.

DON'T WE ALL, AND A LOT OF

WATER.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR THAT, THANK

YOU.

LEE?

UP NEXT, RUMORS AND

ALLEGATIONS AS A HIGH RANKING

OFFICIAL RETIRES, WHY HUMAN

RIGHTS ADVOCATES SAY ONE MAN

DESERVES JAIL TIME.

A HIGH RANKING DUTCH OFFICIAL

RETIRING THIS WEEK IS BEING

HONORED FOR HIS WORK.

HUMAN RIGHTS ADVOCATES SAY

HE DOESN'T DESERVE PRAISE, THEY

SAY HE DESERVES PRISON.

JOHN WAAGE EXPLAINS IN

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

REPORTER: MUCH LIKE A

COURTROOM, THESE WITNESSES

PRESENTED THEIR TESTIMONIES TO A

CAPITOL HILL AUDIENCE.

THE MAN THEY ACCUSE HAS YET TO

STAND TRIAL.

I WAS AFRAID TO SAY NO AND

INNOCENT.

THAT IS A VOICE OF A GROWN

MAN DESCRIBING MOTIONAL SCARS

FROM CHILDHOOD.

HE BARELY SURVIVED AN

ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT.

AT 14 YEARS OLD, HE LEFT HIS

FAMILY IN TURKEY TO FIND WORK IN

EUROPE.

HE FOUND TROUBLE AND BLACKMAILED

INTO WORKING AT AN AMSTERDAM

BROTHEL.

HE MET THIS DUTCHMAN GEORGE

DEMIC. SECOND TIME WE MET,

HE WANTED ME TO GO WITH HIM TO

HIS HOME.

HE CLAIMS HE WAS FORCED TO

HAVE SEX WITH DEMIC, A POSITION

THE VICTIM'S LAWYER SAYS KEEPS

HIM FROM BEING PROSECUTED.

WHEN HIGH ELITE PEOPLE ABUSE

CHILDREN AND THEY ARE NOT

PROSECUTED, WHY DO YOU HAVE

LAWS?

DUTCH INVESTIGATED BOTH IN

NETHER LANDZ AND TURKEY DATING

BACK TO 1990S.

OFFICIAL FINDING HAS BEEN THAT

THE RUMORS AND ALLEGATIONS ARE

UTTERLY BASELESS.

A REPRESENTATIVE FROM THE DUTCH

EMBASSY AND CRITICIZED THE

FINDINGS.

THE NETHERLANDS TAKES CHILD

SEX TRAFFICKING SERIOUSLY.

THEY BELIEVE THAT STATEMENT

CAN ONLY BE BACKED UP BY TAKING

ACTION N. NEW ALL OF THIS

EVIDENCE DOESN'T SUGGESTION

CRIMES HAVE BEEN COMMITTED.

I WOULD BE SHOCK.

WEBSITES LIKE THIS, ARREST

DEMIC.COM.

THEY WANT TO STOP FROM HONORING

HIM.

MINISTERS OF JUSTICE ARE

PROTECTING HIM.

THEY WONDER JUST HOW HIGH THE

CASE WOULD GO.

AS FOR HER CLIENT, THE

TRAFFICKING SURVIVOR, HE MAKES

ONE REQUEST IN ADDITION TO

JUSTICE.

PLEASE HELP PROTECT MY

IDENTITY, I STILL FEAR FOR MY

LIFE. JOHN JESSUP, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

FROM CRIME HOUSES TO HOMES TO

THOSE IN NEED, HOW ONE SHERIFF'S

OFFICE IS GIVING HABITAT FOR

HUMANITY A RUN FOR ITS MONEY.

FINALLY TONIGHT A FLORIDA

SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT IS NOT ONLY

PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY, BUT

SERVING IT AS WELL.

STARTED A PROGRAM THAT GIVES

HOMES TO THE HOMELESS.

THANK GOD ALL OF THESE PEOPLE

HAVE COME TOGETHER AND DOING

SOMETHING SPECIAL.

HOMES OF SECOND CHANCES.

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF'S

OFFICE FINDS RUN DOWN HOMES AND

INSTEAD OF HOT BEDS FOR CRIME,

THEY RENOVATE THEM FOR PEOPLE IN

NEED.

WHEN YOU ARE TOLD YOU ARE

GOING TO BE PUT INTO A HOME AND

KEEP TELLING YOURSELF IT IS NOT

REAL TILL YOU STEP THROUGH THAT

DOOR I AM IN A HOME.

BACK TO BEING A HUMAN PERSON.

AMAZING.

FOUR HOMES HAVE BEEN RENOVATED

SO FAR.

THE WORK IS ALL BECAUSE OF

DONATIONS.

CUTS DOWN ON CRIME, TOO.

HOMES WHERE DRUG DEALERS WOULD

BE.

LIKE THAT GUY MADE HIM FEEL

LIKE A PERSON AGAIN.

GREAT.
