THE DOCTORS GAVE ME THREE

MONTHS TO LIVE.

THREE DIFFERENT DOCTORS TOLD

ME THE SAME THING.

Lee: THE REVOLUTIONARY

TREATMENT THAT IS KILLING

CANCER, WITH VIRTUALLY NO

SIDE EFFECTS.

IT ABSOLUTELY AMAZES ME

THAT MEDICAL SCIENCE IS JUST

NOW FINDING THIS OUT.

Pat: IT'S A MIRACLE WE

WOULD TELL YOU ABOUT THE

MIRACLE.

AND WE HAVE -- YOU KNOW,

WHAT HARRY TRUMAN SAID, IN

WASHINGTON, IF YOU WANT A

FRIEND, GET A DOG.

Terry: HARRY WAS

RIGHT.

Pat: THE WISDOM OF

INDEPENDENCE, MISSOURI, GET

A DOG.

JUST TO SHOW YOU, I HAVE GOT

ONE.

I HAVE DEE DEE'S PRINCESS

MAGGIE THAT WILL BE ON THE

SHOW TODAY TO SHOW YOU

SOMETHING.

Terry: WE HAVE TO SEE

HER DO THE JUMP OVER THE LEG

THING.

IS SHE DOING THAT?

Pat: HONEY, THE LAST

TIME SHE WAS HERE, SHE HID

UNDER THE CHAIR.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE'LL

DO.

SHE IS A WOMAN AND SHE HAS A

MIND OF HER OWN.

IMAGINE A FREE CANCER

TREATMENT WITH VIRTUALLY NO

SIDE EFFECTS.

IT CAN BE USED AT THE SAME

TIME AS OTHER TREATMENTS.

DOES IT EXIST?

YES, IT DOES, WITH AMAZING

PROMISE.

Terry SUPPORTERS SAY

SUGAR IS CANCER FOOD.

IF YOU CUT OUT THE CARBS,

YOU CAN ACTUALLY KILL OFF

THE CANCER.

LAURIE JOHNSON HAS MORE.

Reporter: DR. FRED

HATFIELD IS AN IMPRESSIVE

GUY.

HE IS A POWER-LIFTING

CHAMPION, AUTHOR,

MILLIONAIRE BUSINESSMAN WITH

A BEAUTIFUL WIFE.

BUT HE'LL TELL YOU HIS

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IS

KILLING HIS CANCER JUST IN

THE KNICK OF TIME.

THE DOCTORS GAVE ME THREE

MONTHS TO LIVE BECAUSE OF

WIDESPREAD METISSTATIC

CANCER IN MY SKULL.

IT IS A HORRIBLE,

HORRIBLE FEELING TO HAVE

SOMEONE TELL YOU THAT THE

PERSON YOU LOVE ONLY HAS

THREE MONTHS TO LIVE AND

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE WITH

HIM ANYMORE.

Reporter: WHILE FRED

WAS PREPARING TO DIE, HE

HEARD ABOUT AN ANTI-CANCER

DIET.

WITH NOTHING TO LOSE, HE

GAVE IT A TRY AND WAS

SHOCKED WHEN IT ACTUALLY

WORKED.

AND THE CANCER WAS GONE,

COMPLETELY.

TO THIS DAY, THERE IS NO

TRACE OF IT, AND IT HAS BEEN

OVER A YEAR.

Reporter: ALTHOUGH IT

WASN'T EASY, FRED STOPPED

EATING CARBOHYDRATE BECAUSE

CARBOHYDRATES TURNS INTO

GLUEGLUCOSE.

AND CANCER NEEDS GLUCOSE OR

THEY DIE.

FRED'S RECOVERY WAS NOT A

SURPRISE TO ONE DOCTOR.

HIS TEAM OF SCIENTISTS AT

THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH

FLORIDA STUDY METABOLIC

THERAPY.

WHEN THEY REMOVED

CARBOHYDRATES FROM THE DIETS

OF LAB MICE, THE MICE

SURVIVED HIGHLY AGGRESSIVE

METASTATIC CANCER.

EVEN BETTER THAN WHEN THEY

WERE TREATED WITH

CHEMOTHERAPY.

THEY HAVE DRAMATICALLY

INCREASED SURVIVAL WITH

METABOLIC CHEMOTHERAPY.

Reporter: AND IT IS NOT

JUST LAB MICE.

HE HAS SEEN SIMILAR SUCCESS

IN PEOPLE, LOTS OF THEM.

I'VE BEEN IN

CORRESPONDENCE WITH A NUMBER

OF PEOPLE, AT LEAST A DOZEN

PEOPLE, OVER THE LAST YEAR

AND A HALF TO TWO YEARS, AND

ALL OF THEM ARE STILL ALIVE,

DESPITE THE ODDS.

THIS IS VERY ENCOURAGING.

Reporter: ALL CELLS,

INCLUDING CANCER CELLS, ARE

FUELED BY GLUCOSE.

IF YOU DEPRIVE THEM OF

GLUCOSE, THEY SWITCH TO KEY

TONE BODIES, ALL ACCEPT

CANCER CELLS.

A DEFECT PREVENTS THEM FROM

MAKING THE SWITCH TO USE KEY

TONE BODIES AS FUEL, AND

THEREFORE CANCER CELLS CAN

ONLY SURVIVE ON GLUCOSE.

ALL OTHER CELLS CAN USE

EITHER GLUCOSE OR KEY TONE

BODIES.

YOUR NORMAL CELLS HAVE

THE METABOLIC ABILITY TO

SWITCH TO USING KEYSTONE

CELLS.

Reporter: PEOPLE LIKE

FRED, WHO DEPRIVE THEIR

CELLS OF GLUCOSE AND FUEL

THEM WITH KEY TONE BODIES

EAT WHAT IS KNOWN AS A KE

KETON GENETIC DIET.

IT IS CLEAN EATING, JUST

VERY CLEAN EATING.

NONE OF THE SUGARS, THE

SALTS, THE TRASH FOOD.

Reporter: NATURAL

PROTEINS ARE ONCE IN THEIR

ORIGINAL FORM, BUT PROCESSED

MEATS, LIKE COLD CUTS AND

HOTDOGS ARE OFF-LIMITS

BECAUSE OFTEN CARBOHYDRATES

HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THEM.

NATURAL FATS, LIKE OLIVE

OIL, COCONUT OIL AND NUTS.

BUT STAY AWAY FROM

TRANS-FATS, LIKE SHORTENING

OR MARGARINE ARE MAN-MADE.

MANY PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF

TRYING THIS DIET BECAUSE

THEY THINK ALL OF THE FAT IS

BAD FOR THEIR HEART.

BUT NOW DOCTORS ARE SAYING

NATURAL FAT IS GOOD FOR YOU,

EVEN COCONUT AND BUTTER.

IS CHOLESTEROL THE MAJOR

CAUSE OF HEART DISEASE?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Reporter: IN HIS BOOK,

"THTHE MYTH," SAYS THAT

MOST PROBLEMS COME FROM

EATING CARBOHYDRATE.

THEY'RE HEARING THE

CONVERSE, THE DANGERS OF

FAT.

FAT IS HEALTHY FOR YOU, AS

LONG AS YOU AVOID

TRANS-FATS.

Reporter: BY CUTTING

BACK ON CARBOHYDRATES, AND

EATING NATURAL FATS AND

PROTEINS, YOU COULD IM

IMPROVE YOUR HEART HEALTH,

AND EVEN WIPE OUT CANCER.

Pat: AMAZING.

OUR REPORTER, LAURIE

JOHNSON, IS WITH US.

LAURIE, WHY ISN'T THE

MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT

SHOUTING THIS FROM THE HOUSE

TOPS.

IT'S FABULOUS.

TWO WORDS: DRUG

COMPANIES.

WE KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE THIS

KIND OF RESEARCH IS, AND WHO

NORMALLY PAYS FOR MEDICAL

RESEARCH?

Pat: THE DRUG

COMPANIES.

Reporter: AND WHY DO

THEY PAY FOR THE MEDICAL

RESEARCH?

BECAUSE THEY'RE USUALLY

TESTING A DRUG, AND IF THE

RESEARCH GOES WELL, THEY'LL

MAKE A WHOLE PILE OF MONEY

ON THAT DRUG WHEN IT IS

APPROVED.

THIS IS A DIET.

WHO IS GOING TO MAKE MONEY

ON A DIET?

Pat: THE OLIVE OIL

SUPPLIERS ARE GOING TO HAVE

A CARTEL.

Reporter: EXACTLY.

AND TALKING ABOUT THIS

CANCER STORY, JUST A SHORT

TIME AGO, I RECEIVED A

LETTER FROM A WOMAN WHO HAD

CANCER IN HER SALAVARY

GLANDS, AND SHE WAS GETTING

READY TO HAVE SURGERY, AND

SHE WENT ON THE KEY TONE

DIET AND SHE IS FINE.

I WENT U UP TO MAYO CLINIC

AND INTERVIEWED PARENTS OF A

LITTLE BOY WHO WAS HAVING

100 SEIZURES A DAY.

AND ONE DOCTOR SAID, MAYBE

THE PROBLEM IS GLUCOSE.

AND SO THEY TOOK HIM OFF

CARBOHYDRATES, AND THE

SEIZURES STOPPED

IMMEDIATELY.

Pat: AT LEAST 20 YEARS

AGO, THERE WAS A DIET,

KETOSIS, AND YOU HAD THOSE

URINE STRIPS THAT TURNED

BLUE, TO SEE IF YOU'RE IN,

QUOTE," KETOSIS."

BUT AS I RECALL, MY JOINTS

GOT SOAR, AND SOME BAD

THINGS HAPPENED.

IT WASN'T ALWAYS SWEETNESS

AND LIGHT WITH THAT.

Reporter: WELL, IT'S

NOT REAL SIMPLE.

I HAVE TONS OF INFORMATION,

AND LOTS OF LINKS ON OUR

WEBSITE, IF PEOPLE ARE

INTERESTED IN GOING ON

THAT.

AT FIRST BLUSH, I WOULD SAY

MAYBE YOU WEREN'T EATING

ENOUGH FAT.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THINK THE

KETO DIET IS ALL MEAT, BUT

IT FAT.

IF YOU HAVE CHEMOTHERAPY OR

EPILEPSY, A STRICT

KETOGENETIC DIET WOULD BE

GOOD, BUT IF NOT, A MODEST

KETOGENETIC DIET.

I'M ON A MODERATE

KETOGENETIC DIET, WHICH

ALLOWS SOME CARBOHYDRATES,

BUT FEWER.

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN EATS

ABOUT 60% CARBOHYDRATES, AND

A MODERATE IS ABOUT 25%.

Pat: WHAT ARE SOME OF

THE HIDDEN KILLERS OUT

THERE?

TOPPING THE LIST, FOR

SURE, ARE THE TRANS-FATS.

WE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE,

BUT I REALLY DON'T THINK

PEOPLE ARE GETTING THE

MESSAGE.

EIGHTANYTHING HAD SAYS

HYDROGENATED.

THOSE ARE ONE MOLECULE AWAY

FROM PLASTIC.

YOUR CELLS CANNOT

COMMUNICATE WHEN YOU'RE

EATING TRANS-FAT, AND

THEY'RE IN EVERYTHING.

AND WE TALKED ABOUT THE HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, THE

SUGAR THAT IS IN

EVERYTHING.

THOSE TWO THINGS ARE THE

WORST.

Pat: IF YOU'RE EATING

STANDARD BREAD, AND THEY'VE

GOSYRUP IN IT.

THAT'S RIGHT.

Pat: YOU'VE REALLY GOT

TO BE A DETECTIVE, READING

ALL OF THE LABELS?

IT IS THE SAME WAY WITH A

LOT OF THINGS IN OUR

SOCIETY.

IT USED TO BE YOU COULD TURN

ON THE TV AND WATCH WHATEVER

IS ON.

NOW YOU HAVE TO BE MORE

DISCERNING.

IT USED TO BE YOU COULD WALK

INTO THE GROCERY STORE AND

EAT WHATEVER IS ON THE

SHELF.

NOW YOU HAVE TO BE MORE

DISCERNING.

Pat: WE DID A FEATURE

HERE AND HELD UP THE CANS OF

SOUP WITH M.S.G.

DOES THAT HAVE ANY BEARING

IN ALL OF THE THINGS YOU'RE

TALKING ABOUT?

THE M.S.G., YES, THEY

HAVE COME OUT WITH ALL KINDS

OF RESEARCH OF HOW BAD THAT

IS.

IF YOU GO ON OUR WEBSITE,

cbn.com, THERE ARE A LIST

OF THINGS CONTAIN M.S.G.

THE RULE OF THUMB IS, IF YOU

DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS, DON'T

EAT IT.

IF IT'S A CHEMICAL NAME.

Pat: BUTTER.

I'VE GOTCHA.

OLIVE OIL.

I HAVE A LOT OF

INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE

ABOUT THE KETOGENETIC DIET,

A STRICT KETOGENETIC DIET

FOR PEOPLE WITH CANCER AND

EPILEPSY, AND A MODERATE

DIET FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO

PREVENT CANCER.

I WAS STAYING IN THE STORY

THERE ARE NO SIDE EFFECTS OF

THE KETOGENETIC DIET --

THERE IS ONE SIDE EFFECT,

YOU LOSE WEIGHT.

YOUR BODY HAS TO BURN

GLUCOSE BEFORE IT BURNS

FAT.

Pat: AND YOU SAY IT'S

THE FAT -- THE JOINTS SWELL

WITH TOO MANY OF THE

KETONES.

IT IS LIKE THE SLUDGE IN THE

FURNACE, YOU HAVE TO BURN IT

UP CLEANLY, AND IT TAKES THE

FAT TO DO THAT?

YES.

AND IT IS RECOMMENDED, IF

YOU'RE GOING TO GO ON THE

KETOGENETIC DIET, READ ABOUT

IT.

I HAVE INFORMATION ON OUR

WEBSITE.

Pat: I HAVE WATCHED

PEOPLE WE LOVE WASTING AWAY

WITH CANCER, AND YOU'RE

PRAYING, AND THE HEALING

DOESN'T TAKE PLACE.

THAT STUFF IS LIKE A

KILLER.

IF THIS THING WOULD KILL

CANCER, THAT WOULD BE THE

MOST WONDERFUL THING.

ABSOLUTELY.

I BELIEVE IT.

AND THAT'S WHAT I'M ON IT

MYSELF TO KILL IT.

I AM HAVE IN HOSPITABLE TO

CANCER CELLS.

IF THEY WANT TO VISIT, I'M

NOT GOING TO FEED THEM.

THE WEBSITE IS cbn.com,

AND THIS STORY WILL POP UP,

AND THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

LINKS AND INFORMATION.

COOKBOOKS.

YOU CAN EVEN COOK THINGS

LIKE CUPCAKES AND BREADS ON

THE KETOGENETIC DIET,

BECAUSE THEY USE SPECIAL

INGREDIENTS.

FOR THE KIDS WITH EPILEPSY,

IT IS ESPECIALLY NICE FOR

THEM.

Pat: MY MINESTRONE SOUP

IS SO GOOD FOR YOU AND IT

HAS NONE OF THOSE.

TERRY, LATER ON IN THIS

SHOW, WE'RE GOING TO

INTRODUCE PRINCESS MAGGIE,

AND WER PRAYING SHE WILL

BEHAVE HERSELF.

Terry: YOU'LL HAVE TO

JOIN US TO SEE IF SHE LEAPS

OVER HIS LEG OR HIDES UNDER

HIS CHAIR.

BUT FIRST WE'RE GOING TO

HEAD TO THE CBN NEWSROOM FOR

TODAY'S TOP HEADLINES, SO

DON'T GO AWAY.

Lee: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."ñ

FEW SIGNS OF PROGRESS IN THE

NEGOTIATIONS BETWEENñ

REPUBLICANS AND THE

ADMINISTRATION, AND AS THE

PROCESS DRAGS ON, SOMEñ

WONDER IF PRESIDENT OBAMA ISñ

REALLY AFRAID OF THE NATIONñ

GOING OVER THE FISCAL

CLIFF.

PAUL STRAND EXPLAINS.

Reporter: THIS FISCAL

CLIFF DRAMA EVEN BROUGHT

SANTA CLAUS TO CAPITOL HILL,

AT THE BEHEST OF THE GROUP,

CATHOLICS UNITED.

MY STAFF AT THE NORTH

POLE IS AS CONCERNED AS I AM

ABOUT THE FATE OF SO MANY

CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AND

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THEM DUE

TO THIS CHILDISH SQUABBLING

IN CONGRESS.

Reporter: THE TWO SIDES

CONTINUE TO TALK, BUT THERE

IS MUST PESSIMISM A DEAL CAN

BE REACHED BEFORE

JANUARY 1.

SOME ARE SUGGESTING THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

CALCULATING HE LIKELY TO

COME OUT A WINNER DEAL OR

NOT DEAL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA MAY WANT TO

GO OVER THE FISCAL CLIFF.

HE MAY BE MORE WILLING TO

GO OVER, AND THEREFORE,

ABLE, IN EFFECT, TO CARRY

OFF A BLUFF.

WHEREAS THE REPUBLICANS

DON'T REALLY HAVE A HAND OF

CARDS THAT ALLOW THEM TO

SUCCESSFULLY PULL OFF A

BLUFF.

Reporter: BECAUSE THE

POLLS SHOW THE G.O.P. WILL

GET THE BLAME IF THERE IS NO

DEAL AND EVERYONE'S TAXES GO

UP.

BUT THE PRESIDENT CAN TURN

AROUND AND PROPOSE THIS TO

THE CONGRESS:

A TAX CUT FOR THE LOWER

98%, WHICH WOULD BE VERY

HARD FOR A REPUBLICAN TO

RESIST.

WHAT REPUBLICAN WHO HAS

ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT THE

BENEFITS OF TAX CUTS AND

LOWER GOVERNMENT, WOULD VOTE

AGAINST A TAX CUT THAT WOULD

HELP 98% OF TAXPAYERS.

Reporter: AND OBAMA

WILL HAVE WON.

AND EVEN IF THIS FAILS, THE

DEMOCRATS WOULD GET ALL OF

THAT TAX MONEY TO SPEND FROM

ALL AMERICANS.

SO WITH ALL OF THE CARDS SO

STACKED AGAINST THE

REPUBLICANS, EVEN SOME

CONSERVATIVES ARE SAYING

G.O.P. LAWMAKERS SHOULD

THROW IN THE TOWEL AND AVOID

A HORRIBLE P.R. DISASTER.

LIKE BILLY CRYSTAL, WHO

SAYS, IF WE GO OVER THE

CLIFF, THERE WON'T BE DAMAGE

TO OBAMA'S CHANCES SUCCESS.

QUITE THE CONTRARY.

THE REPUBLICANS WILL HAVE

MADE DEMOCRATS THE PARTY OF

TAX CUTS, AND OBAMA THE

PRESIDENT OF ECONOMIC

GROWTH.

BUT HANNAH AND OTHER

DIE-HARDS BELIEVE G.O.P.

SHOULD FIGHT TO THE BITTER

END, AND THEY SHOULD

CONCENTRATE ON BUDGET CUTS,

BECAUSE TAX RAISES ON THE

WEALTHY 2% WILL ONLY HELP A

LITTLE.

THIS 2% IS ONLY GOING TO

SOLVE 8% OF THE PROBLEM.

Reporter: HE SAYS

EVERYONE'S TAXES WHAT NEED

TO GO UP 60% TO DIG OUT OF

THE DEFICIT, AND THAT WOULD

SO DEPRESS THE ECONOMY,

AMERICA WOULD PLUNGE OVER A

MUCH WORSE FISCAL CLIFF.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Lee: IT IS KIND OF

FRUSTRATING BECAUSE IT SEEMS

LIKE MOST AMERICANS DON'T

UNDERSTAND THAT THE ISSUE IS

NOT REVENUE.

IT IS A SPENDING PROBLEM WE

HAVE.

Pat: OF COURSE IT IS A

SPENDING PROBLEM.

AND IT IS AN IDEOLOGICAL

PROBLEM.

THE PRESIDENT IS AN

IDEOLOG.

HE WANTS TO REDISTRIBUTE

WEALTH.

HE WANTS TO TAKE OVER THE

FINANCIAL SERVICES.

HE WANTS TO TAKE OVER

EVERYTHING, AND HE WANTS TO

CONTROL IT WHAT DO YOU CALL

THAT?

IT'S SOCIALISM.

BUT HE WOULDN'T ADMIT TO

BEING A SOCIALIST, BUT

THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

AND HE HAS AN AGENDA.

NOW, KARL ROVE WAS SAYING IN

AN OP ED TODAY, HE SAID,

WELL, WHAT THE PRESIDENT IS

TRYING TO DO IS SET UP THE

REPUBLICANS SO THEY FIGHT

AMONG THEMSELVES, AND,

THEREFORE, THE PARTY GOES

INTO DISUNITY AT THE NEXT

ELECTION AND OBAMA WINS

THERE.

I DON'T THINK HE THINKS THAT

WAY.

I THINK HE THINKS

IDEOLOGICALLY, I MUST

CRIPPLE THE CAPITALIST

CLASS.

HE WON'T ADMIT IT, BUT

THAT'S WHERE HE IS GOING.

HE SAID TO JOE THE PLUMBER,

IN THE MIDWEST, WE WANT TO

REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH.

AND WHO SPEAKS FOR THE

REPUBLICANS?

NOBODY.

IT IS VERY HARD FOR A

SPEAKER, WHO HAS SEVERAL

HUNDRED MEMBERS, ALL OF WHOM

ARE INDEPENDENT -- IT'S LIKE

HERDING CATS.

YOU JUST HAVE A HARD TIME

DOING THAT.

WHEREAS THE PRESIDENT IS ONE

MAN, AND HE SPEAKS WITH ONE

VOICE.

BUT IN MY OPINION, THE SMART

THING WOULD BE TO GIVE HIM

2%, OR WHATEVER HE IS ASKING

FOR, AND SAY, OKAY, NOW

YOU'VE GOT YOUR TAX ON THE

RICH.

NOW THE ECONOMY IS YOURS,

AND NOW MAKE IT WORK.

AT WHICH POINT IN TIME, HE

CAN'T.

AND YOU THROW THE BALL BACK

AT HIM.

BUT, ALSO, THEY OUGHT TO GO

ON TELEVISION WITH

WELL-PRODUCED SPOTS.

DAY AFTER DAY AFTER DAY,

HAVING SOME TEENAGER SAY I

JUST GOT A BILL FOR $150,000

TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF DRUG

ADDICTION OF CHINESE

PROSTITUTES.

DAD, I DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR

THAT.

WHY DO THEY KEEP DOING STUFF

LIKE THAT AND BUILD UP ANGER?

AND SHOW WHAT IT IS THE

DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO HOLD

ON TO WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT

SPENDING.

IT IS OUTRAGEOUS WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

WE'RE WASTING MONEY IN

BUCKETLOADS.

DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUADRUPLE,

FIVE OR SIX TIMES --

SOMETIMES 50 OR 60 TIMES

DUPLICATION IN VARIOUS

AGENCIES.

IT IS JUST OUTRAGEOUS.

AND YET THE DEMOCRATS ARE

TRYING TO DEMOGOGUE THE

ISSUE AND SAY IT HAS TO DO

WITH THE RICH GETTING TOO

MUCH.

THE RICH -- IF THEY TOOK ALL

OF THEIR MONEY AWAY FROM

THEM, IT WOULDN'T EVEN BEGIN

TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM MORE

THAN A FEW DAYS.

THE PROBLEM IS THE MASSIVE

SPENDING AND WASTE OF THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

IT'S GOT TO BE REINED IN,

AND YET IT IS AMAZING --

YOU'VE GOT PEOPLE IN

WASHINGTON WHO WON'T FACE UP

TO THE PROBLEM.

AND, FOLKS, THE FISCAL

CLIFF -- WHAT IS A FISCAL

CLIFF?

THE TAXES ARE GOING TO GO

UP.

TAXES ON CAPITAL GAINS,

TAXES ON DIVIDENDS.

IT WON'T BE THE END OF THE

WORLD.

WE WERE PAYING THEM BEFORE.

BUT IT IS AN AMAZING THING,

TOO.

WATCH THIS, WHEN YOU'RE

LISTENING, WHERE DID THOSE

MIDDLE TAX CUTS COME FROM?

THEY WERE PART OF THE BUSH

TAX CUT PROGRAM, WHICH

INCLUDED CUTS IN DIVIDENDS

AND ALSO CUTS IN CAPITAL

GAINS.

SO IT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO ALL

OF THESE PEOPLE ON

TELEVISION, SAYING THIS WAS

TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH.

HAVE YOU HEARD IT?

THEY SAID IT THOUSANDS OF

TIMES.

AND NOW HE SAYS YOU HAVE TO

DEFEND THE MIDDLE CLASS TAX

CUTS.

WHERE DID THEY COME FROM?

THEY CAME FROM THE BUSH

PROGRAM.

IT WASN'T A DEMOCRATIC

PROGRAM.

IT WAS A REPUBLICAN

PROGRAM.

THE REPUBLICANS ARE GETTING

OUTFLANKED.

IF YOU LOVE THIS NATION, IF

YOU LOVE THE FUTURE OF YOUR

COUNTRY, IF YOU LOVE YOUR

CHILDREN, YOU'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING TO KEEP THIS

COUNTRY FROM BEING DESTROYED

BY WILLFUL PEOPLE WHO ONLY

THINK OF THE NEXT ELECTION.

THEY'RE PLAYING GAMES WITH

YOUR FUTURE INSTEAD OF

SERIOUSLY GETTING DOWN AND

SAYING WE HAVE A SERIOUS,

SERIOUS DEFICIT PROBLEM.

WE'VE GOT TO SOLVE IT OR

THIS COUNTRY WILL TURN OUT

TO BE THE SAME AS

ARGENTINA.

WE CAN'T HAVE IT HAPPEN.

SO IF YOU LOVE YOUR COUNTRY,

YOU LOVE YOUR CHILDREN, YOU

LOVE YOUR GRANDCHILDREN, GET

BUSY AND GET ON THE HORN AND

START LETTING YOUR

CONGRESSMEN KNOW YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO STAND THIS NONSENSE

ANYMORE.

FLOOD THE WHITE HOUSE WITH

CALLS AND LETTERS AND SAY

STOP THIS GAMESMANSHIP AND

GET SERIOUS.

Lee: WE'RE LEARNING

TODAY ABOUT NEW HIDDEN FEES

IN OBAMACARE.

EVERY AMERICAN WILL HAVE TO

PAY A $63 FEE STARTING IN

2014.

IT IS TO HELP PAY FOR

INSURANCE FOR AMERICANS WITH

PREEXISTING MEDICAL

CONDITIONS.

IT MAY NOT SOUND LIKE A LOT

OF MONEY, BUT IT MEANS TENS

OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF

NEW FEES FOR LARGER

EMPLOYERS.

THE NEW FEES ARE EXPECTED TO

RAISE ABOUT $25 BILLION.

THE GOVERNMENT SAYS THE FEE

IS TEMPORARY.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS THERE.

BUT EXPERTS WONDER HOW THEY

CAN PREDICT THAT.

CONGRESS WILL DECIDE IN

2017, WHETHER TO EXTEND THE

FEES.

FEDERAL REGULATIONS THAT

WERE PUT ON HOLD DURING

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

RE-ELECTION BID COULD BE

AMERICA'S NEW FISCAL CLIFF.

THAT'S WHAT SOME REPUBLICAN

LAWMAKERS AND BUSINESS

GROUPS ARE WARNING.

FOR MONTHS FEDERAL AGENCIES

IN THE WHITE HOUSE PUT ASIDE

DOZENS OF REGULATIONS,

EVERYTHING ON NEW RULES FROM

POWER PLANT POLLUTION TO

WORKPLACE SAFETY.

NOW CRITICS SAY THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS QUIETLY

PLACING THEM BACK ON THE

TABLE.

THEY SAY THE PRESIDENT SIDE

TRACKED HEAVY REGULATION

DURING THE CAMPAIGN, TO

AVOID BEING LABELLED A

POWER-HUNGRY CANDIDATE WHO

KILLS U.S. JOBS.

A MARYLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT

HAS SUSPENDED ITS BIOMETRIC

PROGRAM.

THE SUPERINTENDENT OF

CARROLL COUNTY SCHOOL SAYS

THE NEW PROGRAM WAS DIVIDING

THE COMMUNITY, AND THAT WAS

NOT HIS INTENT.

THE RUTHERFORD INSTITUTE

CALLED ON THE SCHOOL TO DROP

THE PROGRAM.

MORE THAN 50 SCHOOLS IN THE

COUNTRY USE BIOMETRIC

SCANNERS.

SCHOOLS SAY THE SYSTEMS SAVE

TIME AND MONEY, BUT THE

RUTHERFORD INSTITUTE CALLS

THEM A STEALTH MOVE ON THE

PART OF CORPORATIONS AND

SCHOOLS TO FURTHER ENTRENCH

THE SURVEILLANCE STATE.

NORTH KOREA DID LAUNCH A

SATELLITE WEDNESDAY ON THAT

LONG-RANGE ROCKET.

SOUTH KOREA CONFIRMS IT IS

ORBITING THE EARTH RIGHT

NOW.

KIM JONG-UNI UN IS JUST AS

PROVOCATIVE AS HIS FATHER,

THAT MAY MEAN A TOUGHER LIFE

FOR CHRISTIANS AND THOSE

TRYING TO REACH THE COUNTRY

WITH THE GOSPEL MESSAGE.

THE MESSAGE TO THE WORLD

IS DON'T MESS WITH ME.

I DON'T ONLY HAVE THE

WEAPONS, BUT I HAVE THE

DELIVERY CAPABILITY NOW.

Reporter: MANY NORTH

CAREERNORTH KOREANS

CELEBRATED THE ROCKET

LAUNCH.

IT IS REGRAT REGRETTABLE

THAT THEY CHOSE TO TAKE THIS

COURSE.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

SAID KIM JONG-UN HAS A

CHOICE TO MAKE.

HIS LATEST CHOICE IS AN ACT

THAT CONTINUES TO BE

CONDEMNED FROM LEADERS

AROUND THE WORLD.

WHAT WE HAVE SEEN, SINCE

THIS PRESIDENT CAME INTO

OFFICE, IS THE BUILDING OF

AN INTERNATIONAL CONSENSUS,

THAT INCLUDES RUSSIA AND

CHINA.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS SAY

NORTH KOREA IS INCREASING

ITS PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS, UNDER HIS

LEADERSHIP, AND IT IS

TARGETING THOSE WHO HELP

THEM.

A RECENT REPORT BY "RELIGION

TODAY" SHOWS THAT NORTH

KOREA IS SENDING A NUMBER OF

SPIES TO CHINA.

THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY

HAS TAKEN OVER BORDER

PATROLS, AND THAT IS PUTTING

PRESSURE ON CAPTURED

SMUGGLERS TO DISCLOSE

INFORMATION ABOUT CHRISTIANS

HELPING DEFECTORS, BUT THAT

IS NOT STOPPING THEIR WORK.

WHAT THEY WOULD SAY IS,

PLEASE DON'T PRAY FOR US TO

BE REMOVED FROM PERSECUTION,

BUT PRAY FOR US TO BE

FAITHFUL IN IT BECAUSE GOD

IS ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING

HERE.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

"OPEN DOORS U.S.A." SCRUTINY

OF THE BRAVE CHRISTIANS IN

NORTH KOREA HAS INCREASED.

ABOUT 50,000 TO 70,000

CHRISTIANS ARE LIVING IN

HORRENDOUS CONDITIONS IN THE

COUNTRY'S LABOR CAMPS.

Lee: PAT, WE FERVENTLY

PRAY FOR THOSE CHRISTIANS IN

NORTH KOREA.

Pat: I WAS IN THE

MARINE CORPS, WITH THE FIRST

MARINE DIVISION IN KOREA, I

WAS STATIONED NORTH OF THE

38th PARALLEL, AND WE WERE

UP GEN AGAINST THE NORTH

KOREANS AND THE CHINESE, AND

YOU TALK ABOUT FAILED

POLICIES.

OUR COUNTRY WAS BEING UNDER

UNDERMINED AT THE PARTICULAR

TIME TO A GROUP THAT WAS

FAVORABLE TO RUSSIA AND THE

COMMUNIST CAUSE, AND WE WERE

FORBIDDEN TO GO -- THEY KEPT

TALKING ABOUT THE YALLOW

RIVERS, A DIVIDING LINE

BETWEEN NORTH KOREA AND

CHINA, AND THE CHINESE WOULD

COME ACROSS TH THE YAL

YALLOW RIVERS.

AND THEY SAID WE CAN'T BOMB

ACROSS THAT AND NOTHING

WOULD HAVE HAPPENED.

KOREA COULD HAVE EASILY HAVE

BEEN CUT IN HALF BY ARMED

FORCES.

WE COULD HAVE SQUEEZED OFF

THE ATTACKING FORCES FROM

CHINA, AND YET PRESIDENT

TRUMAN, AND MAYBE WISELY SO,

DIDN'T WANT TO START A BIG

WAR WITH CHINA.

AND SO HE BACKED DOWN.

MCARTHUR SAID LET'S GO FOR

IT.

LET'S FIGHT THEM AND WIN.

AND THE PEOPLE IN WASHINGTON

SAID, NO, LET'S GET A

PEACE.

SO THEY WENT BACK AND FORTH,

BACK IN A PLACE CALLED

PANMOONJONG, AND THEY

NEGOTIATED, AND FINALLY THEY

HAD A SETTLEMENT AT THE

38th PARALLEL, THE

DIVIDING POINT.

AS A RESULT OF THAT, WE

ALLOWED THIS DICTATORSHIP TO

BE FORMED.

THERE WAS A LIEUTENANT

COLONEL IN THE KOREAN ARMED

FORCES WHO HAD BEEN PLACED

IN POWER BY THE RUSSIANS.

HE WAS TRAINED BY THE

RUSSIANS, AND THEY PUT HIM

IN.

AND WHAT WAS HIS -- KIM

IL-SUN.

THE THING OF IT ABOUT NORTH

KOREA, THEY HAVE A GROSS

DOMESTIC PRODUCT OF MAYBE

$25 BILLION, $35 BILLION.

THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

A FRACTION OF MICROSOFT, A

FRACTION OF GOOGLE, A

FRACTION OF APPLE -- THAT'S

THE WHOLE COUNTRY.

THEY'RE DESPERATELY POOR.

AND YET WE ALLOW THEM TO GO

FORWARD, AND THE CHINESE ARE

SHELTERING THEM BECAUSE IT

IS A NICE THING FOR THE

CHINESE TO HAVE A CLIENT

STATE THAT IS GIVING THE

UNITED STATES TROUBLE.

WHAT DO WE DO?

WELL, THE PROBLEM IS WE

ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN.

WE ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN.

REMEMBER WHEN MA MCCARTHUR

GOT FIRED.

AND HE SAID, AND I'LL SAY IT

AGAIN, IN WAR, THERE IS NO

SUBSTITUTE FOR VICTORY.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A VICTORY,

DON'T GO TO WAR.

BUT WE FOUGHT TO A STALEMATE

IN VIETNAM.

WE FOUGHT OVER AND OVER

AGAIN TO A STALEMATE.

WE HAVE THE SAME THING IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

Terry: AND HERE WE ARE

TODAY.

Pat: HERE WE ARE

TODAY.

WITH THIS VICIOUS

DICTATORSHIP, BECAUSE WE

ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN.

Terry: MOVING ON, WHILE

THE STARS GATHERED FOR AN

EVENT TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE

VICTIMS OF SUPER STORM

SANDY, OUR "OPERATION

BLESSING" TEAM WAS ALREADY

ON THE SCENE.

WE'LL BRING YOU MORE NEXT.

*

Pat: THEY'RE GOOD FOR

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.

THEY'RE GOOD TO KEEP YOU

HEALTHY, AND AS HARRY S.

TRUMAN SAID, IN WASHINGTON,

IF YOU WANT A FRIEND, GET A

DOG.

THIS IS PRINCESS MAGGIE.

Terry: MAGGIE, YOU ARE

A PRINCESS.

Pat: SHE IS AN IRISH

WATER SPANIEL.

Terry: SHE IS

BEAUTIFUL.

Pat: ISN'T SHE

BEAUTIFUL.

ALL RIGHT, MAGS, MAY

ATTENTION.

MAGGIE, LIE DOWN, PLEASE.

YOU'RE NOT BEING OBEDIENT.

WHY IS IT THESE WOMEN AREN'T

OBEDIENT.

Terry: EXCUSE ME.

MAGGIE, JUMP.

Pat: ALL RIGHT.

THERE, JUMP.

Terry: YOU'RE

LIBERATED, GIRL.

YOU'RE LIBERATED.

Pat: DON'T BE A

FEMINIST.

SIT DOWN.

ALL RIGHT, MAGGIE.

SIT.

GOOD GIRL.

NOW I WANT YOU TO JUMP.

HERE, JUMP.

Terry: GOOD GIRL.

Pat: OH, THAT'S NOT A

JUMP.

COME ON.

DON'T EMBARRASS ME.

EVERY TIME YOU COME ON YOU

EMBARRASS ME.

ALL RIGHT.

IS THAT -- ALL YOU WANT TO

DO IS EAT.

Terry: SAY, WELL, OF

COURSE, DAD.

Pat: COME ON, MAGGIE.

SIT.

MAGGIE, SIT.

LIE DOWN.

Terry: GOOD GIRL.

Pat: LIE DOWN.

ROLL OVER.

ROLL OVER.

THAT A GIRL.

Terry: GOOD GIRL,

MAGS.

Pat: COME ON BACK

HERE.

JUMP.

THAT'S IT.

THAT'S BETTER.

Terry: WOW!

YOU'RE HUNGRY TODAY.

Pat: NO, SHE'S BEING

GOOD TODAY.

Terry: SHE'S

WELL-TRAINED.

Pat: DON'T COUGH ON ME,

FOR HEAVEN SAKE.

Terry: WE CAN CLEAN

THAT.

Pat: WE CAN, CAN'T WE.

YOU'RE A GOOD GIRL.

MAGGIE, LIE DOWN.

PAY ATTENTION.

LIE DOWN.

OH, COME OFF IT.

HERE.

LIE DOWN.

DOWN.

Terry: LOOK AT THE SIZE

OF HER PAWS.

Pat: GOOD GIRL.

ROLL OVER.

ROLL OVER.

NO, HERE IS THE TREAT.

ROLL OVER.

NO.

MAGGIE, YOU DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

Terry: NOW YOU KNOW,

FOLKS, WHAT HE DOES WITH HIS

FREE TIME.

Pat: ROLL OVER.

GOOD GIRL.

ALL THE WAY.

SHE DID IT!

OKAY, THAT'S ENOUGH DOG.

Terry: THAT'S A GOOD

GIRL.

SHE SAYS, I WANT MORE.

Pat: SHE WANTS TO PLAY

WITH PETE.

ALL RIGHT.

IT HAS BEEN SIX WEEKS SINCE

HURRICANE SANDY HIT THE

SHORE.

BUT FEMA OFFICIALS ARE

SAYING SOME PEOPLE DISPLACED

BY THE SUPER STORM MAY HAVE

TO WAIT MONTHS BEFORE THEY

CAN GO TO THEIR HOMES.

THAT'S WHY "OPERATION

BLESSING" IS ON THE GROUND,

GIVING MUCH-NEEDED HOPE TO

ONE NEW JERSEY TOWN.

YOU JUST SEE YOUR HOME

ALL RIPPED UP, OR SOME HAVE

SEEN THEIR HOMES IN WATER.

AND IT'S JUST DEVASTATING

BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE YOU

HAVE YOUR FAMILY.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF MEMORIES.

Reporter: IN THE WAKE

OF HURRICANE SANDY'S

DEVASTATING BLOW TO THE

NORTHEAST, ONE OF THE

HARDEST HIT, YET LESS

PUBLICIZED AREAS IS LITTLE

EGG HARBOR, NEW JERSEY.

WHEN THE CRY WENT OUT TO

HELP FAMILIES IN THIS

CRISIS, "OPERATION BLESSING"

ANSWERED THE CALL.

IT IS SUCH A LITTLE

TUCKED AWAY LITTLE TOWN.

THAT ALMOST -- I DON'T WANT

TO SAY FORGOTTEN, BUT ALMOST

A LITTLE FORGOTTEN TOWN

BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T HAD

REALLY ANYBODY ELSE IN HERE

TO HELP THEM.

WE HAPPENED TO BE PLACED

THERE.

Reporter: PEOPLE HERE

WEREN'T ALLOWED FOR DAYS.

WHEN THEY RETURNED, THEY

NEEDED HELP CLEARING OUT

DAMAGED WALLS, FURNITURE,

AND LIFE-LONG MEMORIES, AND

MOST OF ALL, THEY WANTED TO

SALVAGE WHATEVER THEY

COULD.

THAT'S WHERE "OPERATION

BLESSING" VOLUNTEERS CAME

IN.

BEFORE THEY EVEN THREW

ANYTHING OUT, THEY ASKED ME,

DOUBLE ASKED ME.

VERY PROFESSIONAL.

YOU KNOW WHAT, THE CARING

AND THE KINDNESS THAT THEY

ARE DISPLAYING IS JUST

UNBELIEVABLE.

WONDERFUL.

THEY EVEN TOLD ME, OH,

THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME

COME IN YOUR HOUSE.

AND I WAS, LIKE, THANK YOU

FOR BEING HERE.

THE FEELING I GOT.

THE ONLY THING I COULD

HONESTLY THINK OF IS LIKE IT

WAS RAINING ANGELS.

THIS MEANS AN AWFUL LOT

TO ME.

I WILL NEVER FORGET IT.

THEY ARE CORDIAL.

THEY'RE KIND.

THEY'VE REALLY BEEN

PROTECTIVE, LIKE YOU HAVE A

FRIEND.

AND IN THIS CASE, TODAY, I

HAVE MANY.

Reporter: WITH YOUR

HELP, "OPERATION BLESSING"

WILL CONTINUE TO MEET THE

NEEDS OF THOSE AFFECTED BY

HURRICANE SANDY, AND OTHERS

WHO HAVE MET UNFORESEEN

TRAGEDIES AROUND THE WORLD.

ALL OF YOU FOLKS THAT

HAVE DONATED, GOD BLESS YOU

ALL.

IT IS THE BEST THING THAT

YOU COULD HAVE EVER DONATED

TO.

IT IS THE KIND OF

ORGANIZATION YOU WANT TO

SUPPORT BECAUSE THEY DO HELP

PEOPLE.

WE SEE THAT.

WE SEE THAT FIRSTHAND.

Pat: I LOVE THAT.

IT WAS LIKE IT WAS RAINING

ANGELS.

DON'T YOU LOVE THOSE

PEOPLE.

THEY SUFFERED SO MUCH.

AND THEY'RE SO BRAVE.

AND IF WE CAN HELP THEM, AND

WE HAVE, AND WE WILL HELP

MORE, BUT THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENS WHEN YOU GIVE YOUR

$20 A MONTH, OR 65 CENTS A

DAY, WHATEVER IT IS, AND

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

OR YOU COULD GIVE $1,000 OR

MORE.

AND WE'RE HERE.

THE OVERHEAD IS MINES

MINISCULE WITH "OPERATION

BLESSING."

IT IS ONE OF THE BEST-RUN

CHARITIES IN AMERICA.

THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE

RECIPIENTS OF THE BLESSING,

IT COMES NOT JUST -- IT'S

NOT JUST A HANDOUT.

IT IS A HAND OF LOVE AND

COMPASSION.

THOSE PEOPLE, OUR PEOPLE,

WHO COME IN, THEY LOVE THE

PEOPLE WHO ARE HURTING.

THAT MAN SAID THEY THANKED

ME FOR LETTING ME COME INTO

MY HOME TO FIX IT UP.

IT IS A GREAT TEAM.

THEY'RE OUT THERE IN YOUR

NAME, WORKING FOR YOU.

Terry: SO OFTEN, WHEN A

DISASTER HAPPENS, WE ALL

FEEL A GREAT DESIRE TO WANT

TO DO SOMETHING THAT

MATTERS.

BUT YOU'RE ALMOST AFRAID TO

GIVE, NOT KNOWING HOW MUCH

GOES TO ADMINISTRATIVE

COSTS.

IN THIS INSTANCE, YOU CAN

GIVE A DESIGNATED GIFT FOR

THESE PEOPLE IN THE

NORTHEAST.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING" IS

NOT ONLY ONE OF THE FIRST

RESPONDERS, BUT THEY STAY

THE LONGEST.

Pat: IT IS SO

EFFICIENT.

THE OVERHEAD, AS I SAY, IS

MINISCULE, AND EVERYTHING

ELSE GOES OUT TO THE

RECIPIENTS.

AND IT IS JUST TREMENDOUS.

1-800-759-0700.

OR YOU CAN SEND A GIFT TO

CBN DISASTER, "OPERATION

BLESSING," WHATEVER MAKES

YOU HAPPY.

OKAY.

Terry: STILL AHEAD,

WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU THE

ORIGINS OF A CHRISTMAS

STAPLE, AND THEN WE'VE GOT

SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS.

PATRICK SAYS, THERE IS A

WOMAN ON TV THAT TALKS TO

THE DEAD.

THE RELATIVES OF THE

DECEASED SEEM SO RELIEVED

AND JOYFUL WHEN THEY GET TO

COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR LOST

LOVED ONES.

DOES THE PEOPLE SAY ANYTHING

ABOUT THIS PRACTICE?"

WELL, WE'RE GOING TO TACKLE

THAT QUESTION AND MORE ON

TODAY'S SHOW.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

THE NUMBER OF U.S. HOME

FORECLOSURES HIT A

NINE-MONTH HIGH IN

NOVEMBER.

BANKS REPOSSESSED OVER

59,000 HOMES LAST MONTH.

THAT'S UP 5% FROM NOVEMBER

OF LAST YEAR.

BUT THE NUMBER OF HOMES

ENTERS THE FORECLOSURE

PROCESS SANK TO ITS LOWEST

NUMBER SINCE 2006, TO ABOUT

77,500.

STILL, BANK REPOSSESSIONS

REMAIN HIGH, AND ON PACE TO

EXCEED 650,000 THIS YEAR,

DOWN 800,000 FROM LAST

YEAR.

THE CITY OF AMSTERDAM HAS

BANNED SMOKING POT IN

SCHOOL.

A SPOKESWOMAN FOR THE CITY

SAYS THE MOVE IS NECESSARY

TO STOP A GROWING NUMBER OF

STUDENTS FROM COMING TO

CLASS STONED.

POT HAS ALWAYS BEEN

FORBIDDEN AT SCHOOL, BUT THE

COUNTRY'S TOLERANCE POLICY

HAS MADE IT DIFFICULT TO

ENFORCE THAT RULE.

THE NEW RULE SAYS SCHOOLS

AND PLAYGROUNDS ARE NO

TOKING GROUNDS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: IT'S ALMOST

CHRISTMAS, AND THIS HOLIDAY

SEASON, AMERICANS WILL SPEND

HOURS GETTING THEIR HOMES

READY FOR CHRISTMAS.

IT IS AMAZING, ALL OF THESE

BOXES.

YOU KIND OF LIKE HAVE IT

ALL, AND IT COMES IN BOXES,

AND THEN YOU PUT IT ALL OUT,

AND YOU HAVE LITTLE PERFUMES

AND THINGS, AND IT SMELLS

NICE.

NO MATTER HOW MANY LIGHTS ON

A TREE, OR IF YOU PREFER

ANGELS TO AN INFLATABLE

SANTA, NO DECORATING JOB IS

COMPLETE WITHOUT STOCKINGS

HUNG BY THE CHIMNEY.

WHY DO WE DO THAT?

ACE COLLINS TELLS US WHY.

ACE, I'VE ALWAYS LOVED

RUNNING DOWN ON CHRISTMAS

MORNING, LOOKING UNDERNEATH

THE CHRISTMAS TREE, BUT

REALIZING I CAN'T OPEN THE

GIFTS YET BECAUSE NO ONE

ELSE IS UP.

SO I BEELINE TO THE

FIREPLACE AND THE

STOCKINGS.

WHERE DID THIS TRADITION

COME FROM?

1600 YEARS AGO.

IT USED TO HAPPEN BECAUSE

PEOPLE HAD TO WASH THEIR

SOCKS EVERY NIGHT AND HANG

THEM ON THE FIREPLACE.

AND WHEN THEY HUNG THEM ON

THE FIREPLACE, THEY DRIED

OVERNIGHT AND THEY PUT THEM

ON THE NEXT DAY.

A POOR FAMILY AND WHAT WE

NOW KNOW WAS TURKEY, WAS

DOING THIS.

AND THREE GIRLS DID THIS,

AND THE FATHER WAS SAD

BECAUSE HE WAS GOING TO HAVE

TO SELL ONE OF HIS GIRLS

BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T HAVE

ENOUGH MONEY FOR A DOWERY.

AND ST. NICHOLAS HEARD THE

STORY, HE WAS IN TOWN, AND

WENT BY AND TOSSED A COIN IN

THE STOCKING TO SAVE THE

DAUGHTER.

AND THE FATHER HAD

PRAYED?

THE FATHER HAD PRAYED TO

INTERVENE SO HE WOULDN'T

HAVE TO SELL THE DAUGHTER.

AND AS WORD GOT OUT, OTHERS

STARTED HANGING STOCKINGS

HELPING THEY WOULD RECEIVE A

SMALL GIFT FROM A VISITOR

THEY DIDN'T KNOW.

THOSE WERE SMALL

STOCKINGS, AND TODAY THEY

SEEM TO BE SUPER SIZED.

HOW DID THEY GET SO RICH.

CHILDREN IN THE 1980s

AND 1990s REALIZED THE

BIGGER THE STOCKINGS, THE

MORE STUFF COULD BE STUFFED

INTO THEM.

WHEN I WAS GROWING UP,

ALL OF THE OTHER KIDS GOT

CANDY AND TOYS IN THEIR

STOCKINGS.

I GOT AN ORANGE AND AN APPLE

EVERY SINGLE TIME.

BUT YOU WERE GOING BACK

TO THE OLD EUROPEAN CUSTOM

OF GIVING FRUIT AND NUTS IN

STOCKINGS BECAUSE THOSE WERE

VERY RARE TREATS YOU ALMOST

NEVER GOT IN THE

WINTERTIME.

SO CHILDREN TREASURED

THOSE.

I DIDN'T TREASURE THOSE.

I WANTED THE CANDY.

AN EMPTY STOCKING

REPRESENTS POTENTIAL.

BECAUSE THERE ARE POOR

PEOPLE EVERYWHERE THAT HAS

NOTHING FOR CHRISTMAS.

YOU LOOK AT THEM AS AN EMPTY

STOCKING, AND YOU SHARE

BLESSINGS WITH THEM

ANONYMOUSLY, YOU HAVE AN

OPPORTUNITY TO RESTORE THE

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT AND ANSWER

PRAYERS THROUGH YOUR

GENEROSITY THIS YEAR.

Pat: ISN'T THAT

WONDERFUL.

IF YOUR DAUGHTERS DON'T HAVE

A DOWERY, PUT THE STOCKINGS

UP, AND SOME PERSON WILL

DROP ACCRUIN A KRUEGER IN

THEM.

Terry: IT WILL TAKE

MORE THAN A KRUEGER.

Pat: NO WAY.

I'M NOT ELOPING.

I'M HAVING A WEDDING.

Terry: ACE COLLINS HAS

SOME WONDERFUL STORIES OF

THE TRUE TRADITIONS.

HIS BOOK IS CALLED "STORIES

BEHIND THE GREAT TRADITIONS

OF CHRISTMAS."

IT IS AVAILABLE WHERE BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

I THINK IT IS A LOT OF FUN

TO READ THROUGH SOME OF

THOSE WITH YOUR FAMILY.

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

THIS IS PATRICK WHO

SAYS, "THERE IS A WOMAN ON

TV WHO TALK TO THE DEAD.

THE RELATIVES OF THE

DECEASED SEEM SO RELIEVED

WHEN THEY GET TO TALK TO THE

DEAD.

IS IT WRONG, AND IS THERE

ANYTHING THAT BACKS UP MY

PASTORS OPINION?"

Pat: IF YOU WATCH THE

CBS SHOW, "THE MENTALIST."

I'M TALKING TO YOU, AND I'M

SEEING SOMETHING, TERRY, IN

YOUR BACKGROUND.

YOU HAD A MOTHER, DIDN'T

YOU?

OH, YES.

AND SHE WAS FROM ANOTHER

COUNTRY.

AND SHE GOT SICK, DIDN'T

SHE.

AND HE START TELLING ME ALL

OF THE STUFF ABOUT HER, AND

YOU SAY, MAN, ISN'T THIS GUY

AMAZING.

HE HAS REVEALED ALL OF MY

SECRETS.

HE IS A CON MAN.

AND IT IS A BIG CON.

NOW, IF IT IS REAL, IT IS

EVEN WORSE BECAUSE WHAT

YOU'RE HEARING IS A FAMILIAR

SPIRIT, AND THE BIBLE TALKS

ABOUT FAMILIAR SPIRITS.

LOOK UP FAMILIAR SPIRITS.

AND THE BIBLE WARNS US FROM

HAVING COMMUNICATION WITH

SPIRITS THAT PEEP AND

MUTTER.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT

THE FUTURE, IT'S IN THE

BIBLE.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW, GOD

WILL SHOW YOU.

HE WILL SHOW YOU WHAT'S

GOING TO HAPPEN, AND HE'LL

SHOW YOU ALL YOU NEED TO

KNOW.

BUT THIS LOOKING INTO THE

OCCULT IS DANGEROUS.

IT LEADS YOU INTO DEMON

POSSESSION.

IT IS VERY DANGEROUS.

IT OPENS THE DOOR INTO

POSSESSION BY DEMONS.

NOT COOL.

ALL RIGHT.

Terry: THIS IS BEC

BECKY WHO SAYS, "MY

BOYFRIEND BROKE UP WITH ME

AFTER THREE AND A HALF YEARS

OF BEING TOGETHER.

HE WEREN'T TO BE FRIENDS FOR

NOW, AND TRIES TO SAY THIS

DOESN'T NECESSARILY MEAN

WE'LL NEVER BE TOGETHER

AGAIN.

I DON'T KNOW IF I SHOULD

HANG ON OR HANG ON TO HOPE

AND FAITH.

I TRY TO TALK TO GOD, BUT

HEAR NOTHING.

MY MOM SAYS I NEED TO READ

MY BIBLE.

WHERE SHOULD I START

READING?"

Pat: I THINK YOU SHOULD

READ THE PART IN 1

CORINTHIANS WHICH IS ABOUT

PURITY.

WHAT IS A RELATIONSHIP?

DOES THAT MEAN THEY'RE

LIVING TOGETHER AND HAVING

SEX.

Terry: NOW, SHE SAYS

THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF

BEING TOGETHER.

Pat: WHAT DOES "BEING

TOGETHER" MEAN?

IT USED TO BE I WAS DATING.

NOW IT MEANS WE'RE LIVING IN

THE SAME HOUSE AND HAVING

SEX.

Terry: OR NOT LIVING IN

THE SAME HOUSE AND HAVING

SEX.

Pat: OR HAVING SEX.

YES, GO ON.

YOU'RE NOT MARRIED.

SAY GOOD-BYE AND LEAVE OFF

THE KEY, LEE, GET OUT THE

BACK, JACK, AND SET YOURSELF

FREE.

GO, GET SOMEBODY ELSE.

DON'T HANG AROUND.

THIS THING IS NOT WORKING.

SO GO SOME PLACE ELSE.

BUT GET MARRIED.

KIDS TODAY -- YOUNG PEOPLE

ARE NOT GETTING MARRIED.

THEY HAVE ALL OF THE

BENEFITS OF MARRIAGE, WHICH

IS THE SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP,

WITHOUT THE COMMITMENT.

BIG MISTAKE, LADIES.

BIG MISTAKE.

IF MEN CAN GET SEX AND NOT

HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY,

WITH CHILDREN AND ALL OF THE

REST OF IT, THEY'LL HAVE

IT.

WHY NOT?

SO, I MEAN, YOU GIVE

YOURSELF WHAT IS SO

PRECIOUS, AND THEY TAKE, BUT

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO GIVE

YOU IN RESPONSE?

TAKE YOU OUT TO DINNER

OCCASIONALLY?

NEXT QUESTION -- DO I SOUND

CYNICAL?

Terry: NO.

THERE IS A TRUTH TO THAT.

Pat: IT IS TRUE.

MEN NEED TO HAVE A

COMMITMENT.

Terry: YEAH.

AND WE SEXUALITY IS NOT

INTIMACY.

WE WERE MEANT TO HAVE

INTIMACY IN RELATIONSHIP

THAT HAS PERMANENCY AND

COMMITMENT.

Pat: COMMITMENT HAS TO

DO WITH LOOKING AFTER THE

FUTURE, CARING FOR ONE

ANOTHER, AND CARING FOR EACH

OTHER IN SICKNESS AND IN

HEALTH.

UNTIL DEATH DO I PART.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Terry: MATTHEW SAYS, "I

FEEL SO PRESSURED AT MY

JOB.

I'VE BEEN THERE FOR SEVEN

MONTHS, AND MY BOSS SAYS I

SHOULD KNOW MORE THAN I

KNOW.

DO YOU HAVE SOME SCRIPTURE

THAT WILL HELP ME HAVE

CONFIDENCE AND

UNDERSTANDING?"

Pat: WHAT I WILL TELL

YOU TO DO IS TO DO

EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO LEARN

EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR

BUSINESS.

IF IT IS A CORPORATION, READ

THE ANNUAL REPORTS.

READ THE FILINGS THAT THEY

FILE WITH THE F.C.C.

YOU CAN GET THOSE THINGS ON

THE INTERNET.

AND EVERY CORPORATION HAS TO

FILE THESE THINGS.

LEARN ABOUT THE BUSINESS.

LEARN ABOUT WHAT MAKES

PROFIT.

LEARN ABOUT THE PRODUCTS

THEY SELL.

WHAT DO THEY DO?

WHAT IS THEIR UNIQUE SELLING

PROPOSITION?

AND THINK ABOUT THOSE

THINGS.

DON'T JUST COME TO WORK NINE

TO FIVE, AND PUNCH IN THE

TIME CLOCK, I'M GOING TO GET

MY PAYCHECK.

IF YOU WANT TO ADVANCE, FIND

OUT WHAT'S GOING ON.

AND THEN YOU'LL BE IN A

POSITION TO MOVE FORWARD.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS YOU SEE

SOMEBODY WHO IS DILIGENT IN

HIS WORK.

HE WILL STAND BEFORE KINGS.

DILIGENT.

TO FIND OUT WHAT'S GOING

ON.

THAT'S ALL THE TIME WE HAVE

FOR THIS PROGRAM.

TOMORROW, GET THE TRUTH

ABOUT THE SO-CALLED MAYAN

DOOMSDAY.

I THINK IT HAS BEEN

MISAPPROPRIATED.

I MENTIONED THE OTHER DAY

WHAT IT WAS, AND SOMEBODY

SAID I FEEL SO RELIEVED YOU

FINALLY TOLD ME WHAT IT WAS

ALL ABOUT.

ALIGNMENT OF THE PLANETS AND

OUR SOLAR SYSTEM WITH THE

CENTER OF OUR GALAXY.

THAT'S WHAT THEY FORECAST.

WHETHER THAT HAPPENS FROM AN

AFTEASTROLOGICAL

STANDPOINT, I DON'T KNOW.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH STEVEN
