TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

FIGHTING THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE.

WHY ONE MISSOURI BUSINESS OWNER

HAS A REASON TO CELEBRATE.

PLUS THE POWER BALL PRIZE

THAT GAVE AMERICA LOTTO FEVER.

HOW MUCH MONEY WILL THE WINNERS

REALLY GET?

AND THE LIGHTBULB LEGISLATION

THAT COULD CHANGE THE WAY WE

LIGHT OUR HOMES, ALL OF THIS AND

MORE TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

IT IS AN ISSUE CAUSING CONCERN

FOR MANY BUSINESS OWNERS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

CONTRACEPTION MANDATE.

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM WENDY

GRIFFITH.

AND I AM LEE WEB.

THAT MANDATE IS ESPECIALLY

FRUSTRATING FOR CHRISTIAN RUN

BUSINESSES.

THEY SAY IT FORCES THEM TO

PROVIDE BIRTH CONTROL FOR THEIR

WORKERS, EVEN DRUGS THAT INDUCE

ABORTIONS.

A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT IS

WEIGHING IN ON A CASE.

THE EIGHT CIRCUIT COURT OF

APPEALS ORDERED AN INJUNCTION

TEMPORARY BLOCKING FOR O'BRIEN

INDUSTRIAL WITH HOLDINGS.

THIS MARKS THE FIRST DECISION IN

A CASE CHALLENGING THE HEALTH

AND HUMAN SERVICES MANDATE.

THE COMPANY AT THE CENTER OF

THE SUIT.

WE ARE JOINED BY C.C. HIEL,

SENIOR COUNSEL FOR THE ACLJ.

THIS IS A TEMPORARY INJUNCTION.

WHAT IS NEXT?

THIS IS FROM THE APPEALS

COURT.

IT WILL STAY THE ENFORCEMENT.

OUR CLIENTS WILL NOT HAVE TO

COMPLY WITH THIS LAW.

THIS IS A BIG DEAL.

THAT THIS IS THE FIRST RULING

FROM THE APPEALS COURT AND BASED

ON THE FACT THEY BELIEVE OUR

CLIENTS WILL SUCCEED ON THE

MER

MERIT.

THIS COMPANY IS ONE OF MANY

CHALLENGING THE MANDATE.

HOW DOES THIS RULING IMPABT

OTHER CASES?

THIS IS ABOUT 35 CASES THAT

ARE DEALING WITH HHS MANDATE.

PROBABLY MORE WILL BE FILED.

CERTAINLY COURTS LOOK TO OTHER

DECISIONS AND LOOK TO THE

APPELLATE COURT DECISIONS.

IT IS AN IMPORTANT RULES AND

THESE CLIENTS DO HAVE A STRONG

CASE AGAINST THE HHS MANDATE.

WHAT MAKES THEIR CASE SO

STRONG?

IF YOU HAVE RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

AND THE GOVERNMENT DIRECTLY

ATTACKS THOSE BELIEFS BY FORCING

YOU TO VIOLATE THEM.

THAT GOES AGAINST THE FIRST

AMENDMENT.

THE COURT ESPECIALLY IN THE

EIGHTH DISTRICT REALIZES IT.

THEY DO NOT WANT TO PROVIDE

CONTRACEPTIONS FOR THEIR

EMPLOYEES.

IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE

GOVERNMENT TO FORCE THEM.

AS IT STANDS THE GOVERNMENT

STILL WANTS TO FORCE THEM.

IT IS A FIGHT NOT OVER.

IF MANY COMPANIES THEY HAVEN'T

GOTTEN IN THE FIGHT YET.

DO YOU THINK THIS IS IMPORTANT

FOR COMPANIES TO ACCEPT STEP

UP.

THE MORE COMPANIES THAT STEP

UP THE BETTER.

ALL RIGHT.

THANKS SO MUCH WE APPRECIATE

YOU.

THANKS.

PASTOR RICK WARREN SAYS

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS QUOTE DEAD

WRONG ON ENFORCING THE HEALTH

CARE MANDATE.

RICK WARREN SPOKE WITH DAVID

BRODY.

I CLEARLY TOLD THE PRESIDENT

AND WHITE HOUSE I 100% DISAGREE.

HE IS DEAD WRONG ON IT.

THE MOST IMPORTANT FREEDOM IN

AMERICA IS THE FIRST FREEDOM.

THE FIRST FREEDOM IS RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY.

AMERICA FOUNDED BY PEOPLE WHO

CAME HERE FOR THAT FREEDOM.

NOT ANYTHING ELSE BE THE FREEDOM

OF RELIGION.

FIRST PHRASE OF THE FIRST

SENTENCE OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT

OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE

UNITED STATES.

THE RIGHT TO FREE EXERCISE OF

RELIGION.

WARREN GAVE THE INVOCATION OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S INAUGURATION

FOUR YEARS AGO.

YOU CAN SEE MORE OF THE

INTERVIEW FRIDAY ON "THE BRODY

FILE" ON THE ABC CHANNEL.

A GENERAL ASSEMBLY VOTE, MARK

MARTIN IS IN THE CBN NEWS ROOM

WITH MORE, MARK?

THAT'S RIGHT.

WENDY, ISRAEL AND UNITED STATES

SAID IT COULD DELAY THROUGH

PEACE TALKS.

U.S. LAUNCHED AN AGGRESSIVE

CAMPAIGN BUT MOST OF THE 193

GENERAL ASSEMBLY MEMBER STATES

SUPPORT THE PALESTINIANS.

U.N. OBSERVE TO NON-MEMBER

OBSERVER STATE.

CBN MIDDLE EAST CORRESPONDENT

JULIE STALL.

BASICALLY IS GOING TO SHUT

DOWN THE PEACE GOENEGOTIATIONS.

THAT IS WHAT ISRAEL CALLS IT,

THEY ARE GOING TO SAY WE HAVE

THIS APPROVAL NOW WE DON'T NEED

TO TALK.

THESE ARE OUR BOUNDARIES, OUR

CONDITIONS.

WE WANT JERUSALEM AS OUR

CAPITAL.

PALESTINIANS SAY THEY NEED

U.N. RECOGNITION OF A

PALESTINIAN STATE IN WHAT THEY

CALL THE WEST BANK TO RESUME

NEGOTIATIONS INCLUDING GAUZE SA

AND EAST JERUSALEM.

THE LAND ISRAEL CAPTURES IN

1967.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SAYS THEY WILL NOT WIN

A STATE UNTIL THEY DECLARE AN

END TO THE CONFLICT AND

ARRANGEMENT THAT IS PROTECT

ISRAEL.

SECRETARY OF STATE HILARY

CLINTON SAYS IT WILL NOT LEAD TO

THEM LIVING SIDE BY SIDE IN

PEACE.

THAT REQUIRES DIRECT

NEGOTIATIONS.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

EGYPT'S LIBERAL PARTY IS

ACCUSING ISLAMISTS OF HIJACKING

THE CONSTITUTION.

THE MOVE IS EXPECTED TO RAISE

TENSIONS.

ELEVEN MEMBERS OF THE PANEL

INCLUDING TWO CHRISTIANS WERE

VOTED OFF.

THE HASTY VOTE IS TO PRE-EMPT A

RULING BY THE SUPREME

CONSTITUTIONAL COURT TO DISSOLVE

THE ASSEMBLY.

HERE AT HOME, GENERAL DAVID

PATRAEUS SAYS HE SCREWED UP

ROYALLY.

HE SAID HIS AFFAIR WAS A

MISTAKE.

SAYS HIS WIFE, HOLLY IS STANDING

BY HIM.

HE CONFESSED HE CREATED ENORMOUS

DIFFICULTY FOR HIS WIFE.

IN A LETTER SENT TO FRIENDS, I

PAID THE PRICE APPROPRIATELY AND

SOUGHT TO DO THE RIGHT THING AT

THE END OF THE DAY.

RECORD BREAKING POWER BALL

JACKPOT HAS TWO WINNERS.

PEOPLE ACROSS THE COUNTRY WAITED

IN LINE FOR HOURS IN HOPES OF

GETTING THE WINNING TICKET.

DALE HURD HAS MORE.

REPORTER: POWER BALL

OFFICIALS ANNOUNCES WINNING

TICKETS SOLD IN MISSOURI AND

ARIZONA TWO WINNERS WILL SPLIT

THE JACKPOT.

THE LESSER PRIZE WINNERS WILL

SPLIT 131 MILLION.

AT A CONVENIENCE STORE IN NORTH

CAROLINA, THEY WERE COUNTING

THEIR MILLIONS.

I WOULD TAKE CARE OF MY

FAMILY, PAY MY BILLS OFF AND

TRAVEL THE WORLD.

I LIKE PARIS.

WHEN WE WIN WE ARE BUYING A

BASKETBALL TEAM IN ISRAEL.

I COULD TAKE A HELICOPTER TO

WORK.

IN SOUTH PHILLY, EVERYONE

HOPING THEY HAD A WINNER.

I AM GOING TO GIVE 10% TO MY

CHURCH AND THE REST TO MY WIFE

AND KIDS.

STATISTICALLY YOU HAVE THE

SAME CHANCE OF BEING STRUCK BY

LIGHTNING 175 TIMES IN THE SAME

YEAR AS WINNING POWER BALL.

SOME SCRUTINIZE THE FALSE SENSE

OF HOPE.

IT IS A TOUGH SELL, ESPECIALLY

THE CONCEPT OF WINNING A FORTUNE

WITHOUT WORKING FOR IT.

REALITY IS WE COULD DO A LOT

BETTER THAN SPENDING IT ON

LOTTERY TICKETS.

IN TERMS OF OVERALL

HAPPINESS, LOTTERY WINNERS

AREN'T SIGNIFICANTLY HAPPIER.

WE HAVE HEARD THE HORROR WINNERS

ABOUT LOTTERY WINNERS THAT BLEW

THROUGH THEIR MILLIONS.

PEOPLE GET OVEREXTENDED.

THEY ARE UNABLE TO SAY NO.

THE POWER BALL WINNERS WILL

HAVE TO FORK OVER 25% OF THE

JACKPOT TO UNCLE SAM IN TAXES.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

PERCENT SPEAKING OF TAXES,

UNLESS WASHINGTON COMES UP WITH

A BIPARTISAN AGREEMENT TO AVOID

FISCAL CLIFF BY THE END OF THE

YEAR, TAXES WILL GO UP.

NO DEAL IN SIGHT AND DEMOCRATS

AND REPUBLICANS ARE PLAYING THE

BLAME GAME.

LAWMAKERS MET WITH TREASURY

SECRETARY TIM GEITHNER ON

CAPITOL HILL.

AFTER WHICH REPUBLICANS ACCUSED

DEMOCRATS ON NOT OFFERING

SERIOUS PROPOSALS.

DEMOCRATS COUNTER THE BALL IS IN

THE GOP'S COURT.

WE ARE WAITING FOR SOME

SPECIFIC SOME WHERE FROM OUR

REPUBLICAN COLLEAGUES TO SHOW

THEY ARE SERIOUS ON

NEGOTIATIONS.

LISTEN, THIS IS NOT A GAME.

JOBS ON THE LINE.

AMERICAN ECONOMY ON THE LINE.

THIS IS A MOMENT FOR ADULT

LEADERSHIP.

PRESIDENT OBAMA PLANS TO MAKE

DIRECT PITCH TO AMERICANS

TOMORROW APPEARING AT A

PENNSYLVANIA TOY COMPANY AND

CALL FOR EXTENDING TAX CUTS AND

LET THEM EXPIRE FOR WEALTHY

AMERICANS.

A JESUS STATUTE NEAR A SKI

RESORT ON FEDERAL LAND NEXT TO

THE WHITE FISH MOUNTAIN RESORT.

FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION

FILED FOR ITS REMOVAL.

WITH THIS NEW COMPLAINT, A

FEDERAL JUDGE SAYS IT CAN

PROCEED.

COMING UP, SILENT NO MORE.

HOW PASTORS ARE HELPING PREVENT

VIOLENCE IN AFRICA.

ú

THIS YEAR'S ANTITRAFFICKING

REPORT CARDS OUT.

GRADES ARE IN.

GOOD NEWS, 15 STATES IMPROVED

THEIR SCORES.

SHARED HOPE INTERNATIONAL IS

HOPING TO HELP THE 100,000

EXPLOITED CHILDREN IN THE U.S.

AND DETER THOSE THAT BUY OR SELL

THEM.

NEW SHARED HOPE WANTS THOSE TO

TOUGHEN THE PENALTIES FOR

TRAFFICKERS.

THEY ARE ISSUING REPORT CARDS

FOR EACH STATE.

THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR FOR THE

CARDS.

THIS TIME AROUND MANY STATES DID

BETTER.

15 RAISED GRADE, AND 7 RAISED

OVERALL SCORE BY 10 OR MORE

POINTS.

SOCIAL MOVEMENTS TAKE

DECADES.

WHAT I HAVE SEEN THIS LAST YEAR

IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.

STATES ON THE WHOLE ARE DOING

A BETTER JOB.

THAT IS ENCOURAGING.

NO ONE HAS AN A YET, WE ARE NOT

THERE.

STATES ARE DOING BETTER THAN

LAST YEAR.

THAT IS GOOD.

THIS YEAR'S WINNER, LOUISIANA

WITH THE HIGHEST SCORING B.

MASSACHUSETTS WITH MOST IMPROVED

GOING FROM F TO C.

I THINK THE COMBINATION OF

THE GRADES, COMBINATION OF THE

CIVIC, JUST UPRISING, AND THE

GROWING KNOWLEDGE OF LAWMAKERS

IS COMING TO A CRITICAL MESS.

NEW ADVOCATES SAY THE LAWS PAVE

THE WAY FOR BETTER SERVICES FOR

VICTIMS IN MANY STATES THAT ONCE

CONSIDERED THEM CRIMINALS.

THESE GUYS ARE NOT SOME

KNUCKLE HEADS THAT CIS AROUND

AND SAY SIT AROUND AND GRAB THIS

GIRL, THEY KNOW THE LAW.

POLICE SAY MANY ARE MOVING

FROM DRUG TRAFFICKING TO SEX

TRAFFICKING.

IT IS A HIGHER -- WE ARE

SEEING A SHIFT.

2013 COULD BE A BANNER YEAR.

AWARENESS OF THIS ISSUE

CONTINUES TO GROW.

LAWMAKERS HAVE NOW JUST FINISHED

AN ELECTION CYCLE.

REPORTING IN WASHINGTON, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

THANKS, HEATHER.

CHRISTIANS ACROSS THE GLOBE

FIGHTING BACK AGAINST GENDER

BASED VIOLENCE.

AMONG THE GROUPS TAKING PART IN

SILENT NO MORE, IN THE AFRICAN

NATION OF MALAUWI.

THEY ARE TRAINED AS COUNSELOR TO

HELP VICTIMS OVERCOME ATTACKS.

THERESA SAYS MANY VICTIMS ARE

BETWEEN AGES OF 2-13.

WHEN I VISIT CHILDREN THAT

ARE BEING RAPED, AGE GROUPS, I

CAN'T LIVE WITH THAT.

I GO TO BED.

I ASK MYSELF, DOES GOD SEE THE

SUFFERING?

GOD SEES THE PAIN OF THESE

CHILDREN.

GOD IS ALL THINGS.

HE SEES THE PERPETRATORS.

I HAVE A BATTLE WITHIN ME AND I

KNOW THAT, THAT GOD HAS RAISED

US UP.

GOD HAS RAISED ME.

I AM GOING TO SPEAK OUT.

I WILL NOT BE SILENT.

I AM GOING TO RAISE AN ARMY THAT

WILL SPEAK OUT AND NOT BE

SILENT.

TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE

SILENT NO MORE CAMPAIGN, VISIT

OUR WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

UP NEXT, WHY IT COULD BE

LIGHTS OUT FOR THE LIGHTBULB.

THEY ARE CALLING IT THE

BATTLE OF THE BULB.

FIGHT OVER GOVERNMENT'S ATTEMPT

TO LEGISLATE WHAT KIND OF

LIGHTBULBS CONSUMERS CAN BUY F

YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO FIND

THE BULBS IN STORES MUCH LONGER.

HERE IS MARK MARTIN WITH

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

FOR MORE THAN 130 YEARS,

THOMAS EDISONS INCA INCAN

DECENT BULB -- SAYING THE

GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO

DETERMINE WHAT KIND OF

LIGHTBULBS CONSUMERS SHOULD BUY.

EVEN THOUGH CONGRESS TOOK THE

TEETH OUT OF THE LAW.

THE INDUSTRY HAS MOVED ON AND

ALREADY MADE CHANGES TO

PRODUCTION LINES TO BUILD MORE

EFFICIENT BULBS.

THE REQUIRES THEM TO BE 25 MORE

EFFICIENT.

SANDRA MILES.

IT IS VERY WISE.

MAYBE 40-50 YEARS AGO IT

WOULDN'T HAVE WORKED.

NOW YOU HAVE PLENTY OF ENERGY

EFFICIENT ALTERNATIVES.

THOSE ALTERNATIVES FALL INTO

TWO CATEGORIES, CFL'S KNOWN FOR

CURLY SHAPE.

THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO SAVE ENERGY

AND LAST A LOT LONGER THAN

TRADITIONAL LIGHTBULBS.

LIGHTING PROFESSIONAL HOWARD

BRANSTON IS NOT ABLE TO GIVE UP

ON A BULB NOT BROKEN.

HE IS KNOWN FOR LIGHTING STATUTE

OF LIBERTY AND MALAYSIA'S TWIN

TOWERS.

HE STANDS BY EDISONS INVENTION.

ON HIS WEBSITE, SAVE THE BULB, I

SEE NO REASON OTHER THAN THE

SUIT THE PARTICULAR INTERESTS OF

UNINFORMED POLITICIANS, LIGHT

MANUFACTURING GIANTS AND

LOBBYIESTS AND ENERGY ZELITS.

I MIGHT NOT WIN THIS FIGHT.

ALTHOUGH I AM DEDICATED TO IT.

HIS DEDICATION INCLUDES A

LIFETIME SUPPLY OF BULBS STORED

IN HIS BASEMENT.

THE CFL ALTERNATIVE CONTAINS

MERCURY.

THEY BANNED MERCURY IN

THERMOMETERS.

THEY ARE SAYING HEY, IN LIGHT

BULLS IT IS OKAY, THERMOMETERS,

NO.

IT HAS BEEN PUSHED BY THE LAMP

MANUFACTURERS AND THE GREEN

MACHI

MACHINE.

MILES AGREES WITH BRANSTON

WHEN IT COMES TO TOXICITY.

I HAD ONE FALL ON MY CARPET

AND PHOTOGRAPHING THEM.

EVEN ON SOFT CARPET, IT SMASHED

INTO SMITHEREENS.

THEY WOULDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO

DO WITH IT.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

AGENCY SAYS IT REDUCES MERCURY

IN THE U.S. BECAUSE OF THEIR

SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS.

THERE IS DETAILS INSTRUCTIONS ON

THE WEBSITE OF WHAT TO DO IF ONE

BREAKS IN YOUR HOME.

IT SHOWS WHAT HAPPENED TO A MAN

AFTER HE STEPPED ON TO A CFL AND

HIS FOOT BECAME INFECTED WITH

MERCURY POISONING.

YOU HAVE TO PUT THEM IN A

DOUBLE BAGGED JAR.

NOBODY IS GOING TO DO THIS.

LED LIGHTING IS NOT DELICATE.

50,000 HOURS OF WARRANTIED

LIGHT.

BE PREPARED TO PAY MORE FOR

LED.

YOU CAN PAY A BUCK FOR

TRADITIONAL BULBS, A THREE BACK

FOR LED'S ARE MORE.

YOU CAN BE $30 A LAMP, THE

MORE LED'S, MORE EXPENSIVE.

MILES HOPES IT WILL WIN OVER

CONSUMERS.

BRANSTON STILL FAVORS THE SMOOTH

COLOR SPECTRUM.

HIS OPINION MAY NOT MATTER AS

THE INDUSTRY MOVES FORWARD TO

COMPLY WITH REGULATIONS THAT

COME LIGHTBULB SOCIALISM.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS, NEW YORK.

UP NEXT, WE'LL LOOK BACK ON

THE LIFE OF THE CHRISTIAN

SPEAKER ZIG ZIGLER.

CHRISTIAN MOTIVATIONAL

SPEAKER ZIG ZIGLER PASSED AWAY

WEDNESDAY AFTER A BOUT WITH

PNEUMONIA.

HE APPEARED AT MANY EVENTS

INCLUDING SEVERAL U.S.

PRESIDENTS.

HIS WEB PAGE SAYS HE IS SPEAKING

WITH JESUS NOW.

HE WROTE MORE THAN 30 BOOKS

INCLUDING "CONFESSIONS OF A

GRIEVING CHRISTIAN" FOLLOWING

THE DEATH OF HIS OLDEST

DAUGHTER.

HE SHARED HIS INSIGHTS ON THE

"700 CLUB."

GRIEVING FOR THE CREATION IS

LIKE GOING THROUGH A LONG

MOUNTAIN TUNNEL.

YOU KNOW THERE IS AN END, YOU

DON'T KNOW WHERE.

YOU KEEP GOING IN THE STRENGTH

OF CHRIST.

THEN THE GRIEF ENDS WHEN YOU GET

TO THE END OF THE TUNNEL AND SEE

THE LIGHT SHED BY THE GLORY OF

CHRIST AND YOU'LL SEE YOUR LOVED

ONE RIGHT THERE WITH HIM.

REVEREND TONY EVANS IN DALLAS

CALLED ZIGLER A GIANT OF THE

FAITH AND SHOWED LEADERS HOW TO

BRING KINGDOM PRINCIPLES INTO

THE WORK PLACE.

HE WAS 80 YEARS OLD.

WHAT A HUMBLE, KIND GENTLEMAN HE

WAS.

THANKFULLY HE WROTE THESE

BOOKS.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR WATCHING THIS

EDITION OF THAT IS ALL FOR THIS

EDITION OF "NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR JOINING US, WE'LL

SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

GOOD NIGHT.
