The 700 Club - January 9, 2013

Best selling author Mary Hunt joins us to share tips on saving time and money. Plus, Ivan grew up fascinated with the gang life, so it was no surprise when he became a gangster. Read Transcript


THIS YEAR BE A CHEAP

SKAKE.

MARY HUNT SHARES THE

PRACTICAL WAYS YOU CAN SAVE

MONEY AND GET OUT OF DEBT.

LIVE BY THE STREETS AND DIE

BY THE STREETS.

I GOT SHOT IN MY CHEST.

I GOT SHOT IN MY BAFNLGT I

GOBACK.

AND I GOT SHOT IN MY

STOMACH.

THAT'S JUST WHAT HE

WANTED.

I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

HONORABLE.

Lee: HOW HE SURVIVED ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELCOME TO "THE

700 CLUB."

IT WAS A DRAMATIC RAID.

NEARLY 250 MEN AND WOMEN ARE

NOW BEHIND BARS.

THEY WERE ARRESTED IN A

MAJOR CRACKDOWN ON

INTERNATIONAL CHILD

PORNOGRAPHY.

Kristi: THE ARRESTS

COME AS THE TRAGEDY OF CHILD

PORN IS GETTING WORSE, AND

THE VICTIMS ARE GETTING

YOUNGER.

FEDERAL OFFICIALS SAY SOME

OF YOUR BABIES.

IT MAKES US ALL SICK.

Reporter: 52-YEAR-OLD

LISA AND 43-YEAR-OLD LANCE

ROBERT ARE THE LATEST

SUSPECTS ARRESTED IN

OPERATION SUNFLOWER.

A U.S. IMMIGRATION AND

CUSTOMS INFORMANT STING, TO

IDENTIFY AND RESCUE VICTIMS

OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY.

INVESTIGATORS SAY THEIR

FIVE-WEEK STING EXPOSED HER

IN PHOTOS WITH CHILDREN AS

LONG AS 11 YEARS AGO.

THE RESULTS WERE

SIGNIFICANT BUT GRIM, AND

DEMANDS -- ABSOLUTELY

DEMANDS OUR FULL ATTENTION

AS A NATION.

Reporter: ICE AGENTS

SAY THE INTERNET HAS MADE

CHILD PORNOGRAPHY A GROWING

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS.

IT IS NOW ALSO BEING

STREAMED LIVE, WORLDWIDE,

AND THE CRIMINALS AREN'T

OFTEN STRANGERS TO THEIR

YOUNG VICTIMS.

WHEN WE FOUND 44 OF OUR

VICTIMS, THEY WERE LIVING

WITH THE VERY PERSON WHO WAS

SEXUALLY ABUSING THEM.

Reporter: THEIR UNIT

IDENTIFIED AND RESCUED 123

CHILD VICTIMS.

110 WERE IN THE U.S.

46 WERE YOUNGER THAN 12.

AND FIVE WERE UNDER THE AGE

OF THREE.

IT IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM.

IT'S A PROBLEM THAT WE

SOMEHOW HAVE TO GET OUR HAND

AROUND BECAUSE IT IS NOT

GETTING ANY BETTER.

Reporter: SPECIAL AGENT

JOHN CALLAHAN SAYS CHILD

PORNOGRAPHY IS ONE OF THE

FASTEST GROWING CRIMES IN

AMERICA.

IN FACT, THERE HAS BEEN A

2500% INCREASE IN ARRESTS IN

10 YEARS.

THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR

MISSING AND EXPLOITED

CHILDREN REVIEWED MORE THAN

10.5 MILLION IMAGES OF CHILD

PORN IN 2009 ALONE.

AND INVESTIGATORS NOTE, A

SERIAL CHILD MOLESTER COULD

HAVE AS MANY AS 400 VICTIMS

IN HIS LIFETIME.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, OUR

CONGRATULATIONS TO LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

IT SHOCKS YOU TO THINK THIS

IS THE WAY IT IS.

WHO ARE THEY INVOLVED IN?

THEY'RE DOING THIS BECAUSE

THERE IS A DEMAND, WHICH

MEANS THERE IS AN INCREDIBLE

SICKNESS IN THIS SOCIETY,

WHERE PEOPLE WILL PAY MONEY

TO LOOK AT NAKED PICTURES OF

LITTLE CHILDREN.

LEE WEBB HAS AN UPDATE ON AN

IMPORTANT STORY CBN NEWS HAS

BEEN FOLLOWING: A LEGAL

FIGHT OR ELECTRONIC TRACKING

SYSTEM IN SCHOOL.

Lee: THAT'S RIGHT,

PAT.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS RULED A

TEXAS SCHOOL DISTRICT CAN

TRANSFER ONE OF ITS STUDENTS

WHO OBJECTED TO WEARING AN

I.D. CARD WITH A TRACKING

DEVICE.

THE MORE THAN 4,000 STUDENTS

AT JAY HIGH SCHOOL AND JONES

MIDDLE SCHOOL IN SAN ANTONIO

ARE BEING FORCED TO WEAR

SMART I.D. BADGES WERE

TRACKING CHIPS.

15-YEAR-OLD ANDREA REFUSED

TO WEAR ONE BECAUSE OF HER

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

SHE BELIEVES THE BADGE IS A

MARK OF THE BEAST.

THE JUDGE REJECTED HER

RELIGIOUS ARGUMENT.

SHE THINKS HER REASONS ARE

SECULAR.

HE RULED THE SCHOOL CAN KEEP

HER OUT WHILE THE CASE IS

MOVING THROUGH THE COURTS.

THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. WILL SOON

BEGIN PERFORMING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES.

THE 106-YEAR-OLD CATHEDRAL

IS A WORKING EPISCOPAL

CHURCH, AND IT HAS SERVED AS

THE SPIRITUAL CENTER FOR THE

CAPITAL.

IT HAS BEEN THE CHURCH FOR

NATIONAL TRAGEDIES, AS WELL

AS FUNERALS.

NOW THE CHURCH WILL BE AMONG

THE FIRST EPISCOPAL

CONGREGATIONS TO PERFORM

SAME-SEX MARRIAGES FOR GAY,

LESBIAN, AND TRANSGENDER

MEMBERS.

THERE HAS BEEN AN EXITOUS OF

PEOPLE BECAUSE OF IT.

BUT THEY SAY IT IS BEING

FAITHFUL TO THE KIND OF

COMMUNITY THAT JESUS WOULD

HAVE US BE.

PAT?

Pat: I CANNOT IMAGINE,

AND MY WILDEST THOUGHTS,

THAT JESUS CHRIST WOULD HAVE

PUT HIS IMPRONATURE ON THE

MARRIAGE OF TWO LESBIANS OR

TWO HOMOSEXUALS.

AND TO SAY THIS IS THE KIND

OF CHURCH JESUS CHRIST

WANTED, YOU JUST MARVEL.

YOU WONDER WHY SOCIETY HAS

GONE SO FAR.

WELL, SOCIETY HAS GONE SO

FAR BECAUSE THE ARBITORS OF

THE RELIGIOUS TRADITION THAT

WE HOLD TO HAVE GONE SO

FAR.

AND THEY HAVE GIVEN UP THE

TENANTS OF THE FAITH.

AND AS A RESULT, THERE ARE

NO GUIDELINES TO TELL PEOPLE

WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS

WRONG.

WE'VE LOST TRACK OF THAT.

LEE?

Lee: OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS SAY

THE U.S. MAY PULL ALL OF ITS

TROOPS OUT OF AFGHANISTAN

AFTER DECEMBER

DECEMBER 2014.

THAT GOES AGAINST THE

PENTAGON'S VIEW THAT AMERICA

MAY NEED THOUSANDS OF TROOPS

THERE TO DEAL WITH

AL-QAEDA.

THE U.S. NOW HAS 66,000

TROOPS IN AFGHANISTAN.

SOME OFFICIALS SAY BETWEEN

3,000 AND 15,000 MAY STAY.

THE PRIMARY CONCERN IS

PREVENTING AFGHANISTAN FROM

FALLING BACK INTO THE CHAOS

OF THE 1990s.

THOSE PROBLEMS LED TO THE

TALIBAN TAKING POWER AND

PROVIDING A NETWORK FOR

OSAMA BIN LADEN AND

AL-QAEDA.

PAT?

Pat: WELL, YOU KNOW,

THERE IS NO WAY YOU'RE GOING

TO CONTROL AFGHANISTAN.

IT DIDN'T WORK UNDER

ALEXANDER THE GREAT.

IT DIDN'T WORK UNDER THE

RUSSIANS.

IT DIDN'T WORK UNDER THE

BRITS, AND IT'S NOT GOING TO

WORK UNDER US.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME,

al-QAEDA SAYS THIS IS

FERTILE GROUND FOR US.

WE'RE MOVING IN, AND THE

PAKISTANIS ARE DOING ALMOST

NOTHING TO POLICE THEIR

BORDERS.

AND, YET, AT THE SAME TIME,

IT IS LIKE A BECOMELESS

PIT. BOTTOMLESS PIT.

SO WHO NEEDS IT.

YOU'VE GOT A GUY LIKE

KARZAI, WHO IS DEEPLY

INVOLVED IN THE DRUG TRADE,

AND WHO IS HURTLING BOMBS AT

AMERICA AND CLAIMING WE'RE

THE SOURCE OF HIS PROBLEMS.

THIS GUY IS BAD NEWS, BUT

WE'RE STUCK WITH HIM, AT

LEAST APPARENTLY SO.

THE TIME HAS COME, IN MY

OPINION, IS TO SAY, GUYS,

YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN.

WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

IF IT BLOWS UP, TOUGH LUCK.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, VENEZUALA HAS

POSTPONED THE INAUGURATION

OF PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ.

HE IS STILL IN CUBA,

BATTLING CANCER.

POLITICAL OPPONENTS ACCUSE

THE VENEZUALAN GOVERNMENT OF

VIOLATING THE CONSTITUTION.

AND THEY WANT THAT

GOVERNMENT TO TELL THE

COUNTRY HOW SICK THE

SOCIALIST LEADER REALLY IS.

CHAVEZ HAS NOT BEEN SEEN FOR

A MONTH.

DALE HERD HAS MORE.

Reporter: THIS IS ONE

OF THE LAST TIMES HUGO

CHAVEZ WAS SEEN PUBLICLY, ON

DECEMBER 10, SAYING GOOD-BYE

TO GOVERNMENT MINISTERS

BEFORE BOARDING A PLANE TO

HAVANA.

REPORTS INDICATE HE IS

LOSING A BATTLE WITH

TERMINAL CANCER.

RUMORS HAVE BEEN SWIRLING ON

THE INTERNET THAT CHAVEZ IS

ALREADY DEAD.

THE GOVERNMENT IS ONLY

SAYING HE HAS A SEVERE

RESPIRATORY INFECTION THAT

MAKES IT HARD TO BREATHE.

VENEZUALA'S CONSTITUTION

REQUIRES THAT CHAVEZ, WHO

WAS RE-ELECTED LAST YEAR,

MUST SHOW UP ON THURSDAY FOR

THE INAUGURATION, OR THE

SPEAKER OF THE NATIONAL

ASSEMBLY IS TO BE SWORN IN.

HIS TENURE HAS DIVIDED THE

COUNTRY MORE THAN EVER.

AND FOR ONE OF THE MOST

OIL-RICH COUNTRIES IN THE

WORLD, VENEZUALA'S ECONOMY

IS A SHAMBLES, AND VIOLENT

CRIME HAS SKYROCKETED.

IF CHAVEZ DIDN'T RETURN, NEW

ELECTIONS WILL HAVE TO BE

HELD.

VICE PRESIDENT NICHOLAS

MEDORO IS FIRST IN LINE FOR

SUCCESSUCCESSION, BUT CUBA

REPORTEDLY FAVORS THE

CREATION OF A HUNTA TO

MAINTAIN CHAVEZ'S LEGACY

AFTER HIS DEATH.

DALE HERD, CBN NEWS.

Lee: PART OF OBAMACARE

HAS BEEN QUIETLY REPEALED.

IT HAPPENED AS PART

OF THE

FISCAL CLIFF DEAL.

CONGRESS OVERTURNED WHAT IS

CALLED "THE CLASS ACT."

IT WAS BASICALLY A NEW

ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM FOR

LONG-TERM HEALTH CARE, BUT

THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION

REPORTS THAT THE PROGRAM WAS

SO POORLY DESIGNED THAT ONE

OF ITS OWN ADMINISTRATORS

WARNED CONGRESS IN 2011 THAT

THE PROGRAM COULD COLLAPSE.

MEANTIME, FIVE

NEW TAXES

INSTITUTED BY OBAMACARE WILL

KICK IN THIS YEAR.

ONE IS CALLED A MEDICAL

DEVICE TAX, A TAX ON

EVERYTHING FROM STINTS TO

SYRINGES.

A GROUP OF LIBERAL SENATORS

HAD ASKED HARRY REID TO

DELAY THE TAX BECAUSE IT IS

EXPECTED TO RAISE HEALTH

CARE COSTS.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE,

SURPRISE, PAT.

Pat: I'M SHOCKED.

SHOCKED!

SHOCKED!

THAT OBAMA WOULD RAISE

TAXES.

I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE IT.

IT JUST IS SO SHOCKING.

AL FRANKEN, THE COMEDIAN HE

IS, IS SHOCKED.

AND THE LIBERALS ARE SHOCKED

THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO PAY

MORE TAXES ON MEDICAL

DEVICES BECAUSE OF A BILL

THAT THEY FAVORED AND VOTED

FOR.

KRISTI, WHAT DO YOU FEEL?

Kristi: I'LL PUT IT

THIS WAY.

I DON'T HAVE TO FEEL

ANYTHING BECAUSE THE NEXT

STORY SAYS IT ALL.

UP NEXT, IF YOU THOUGHT THAT

THE BATTLE OVER OBAMACARE

WAS DONE, THINK AGAIN.

WE'RE GOING TO TELL YOU WHY

BOTH SIDES ARE GEARING UP

FOR ANOTHER FIGHT, AND WHY

THE LAW MAY HAVE BACKING

FROM THE SUPREME COURT.

BUT LATER ON "THE 700 CLUB,"

DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN USE OLD

DRYER SHEETS TO CLEAN A

COMPUTER SCREEN?

ONE OF JUST THOUSANDS OF

TIPS DESIGNED TO SAVE YOU

MONEY.

WE'LL SHARE MORE LATER ON

TODAY'S PROGRAM.

Pat: NANCY PELOSI WAS

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES WHEN

OBAMACARE WAS COMING UP,

2700 PAGES.

AND SHE SAID, FAMOUSLY,

WE'VE GOT TO PASS IT SO WE

CAN READ IT AND FIND OUT

WHAT IT SAYS.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?

BUT THAT'S EXACTLY IT.

NOBODY KNEW IT HAD SO MANY

TWISTS AND TURNS.

NOBODY HAD A CLUE.

AND MANY OF US THOUGHT IT

WAS UNCONS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

BUT GUESS WHAT?

JOHN ROBERTS, OF THE SUPREME

COURT, PULLED A SLIGHT OF

HAND AND SAID IT IS REALLY A

TAX, AND THE CONGRESS HAS

THE POWER TO TAX.

THIS ISN'T A BURDEN ON

COMMERCE.

IT ISN'T THE INTERSTATE

COMMERCE CLAUSE THAT IS

INVOLVED.

IT IS TAXATION.

AND SO IF OBAMACARE IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL, WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT?

WELL, THAT'S NOT THE FINAL

WORD.

EVEN NOW OBAMACARE FACES A

GROWING NUMBER OF LEGAL

CHALLENGES.

AND SOME OF THEM MAY JUST

LEAD TO ITS DOWNFALL.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THIS

INTERESTING STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: WHILE STATES

SCRAMBLE TO DETERMINE JUST

HOW TO IMPLEMENT THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT,

OR

OBAMACARE, OPPONENTS ARE

STILL FIGHTING THE LAW IN

THE COURT.

AND

THERE ARE GOING

TO

BE

LEGAL CHALLENGES THAT WILL

BE

CONTINUING FOR QUITE

SOMETIME.

Reporter: THE

LEGAL

ARGUMENT GAINING THE MOST

STEAM IS THE CHALLENGE TO

THE CONTRACEPTION MANDATE.

RELIGIOUS BUSINESS OWNERS

AND FAITH-BASED

ORGANIZATIONS ARGUE THE

MANDATE VIOLATES THEIR

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS BY FORCING

THEM TO COVER THE

MORNING-AFTER PILL AND

SIMILAR DRUGS IN THEIR

INSURANCE PLANS.

THE GOVERNMENT CAN SAY

WE'RE GOING TO CAUSE YOU TO

VIOLATE YOUR FAITH.

Reporter: ANOTHER

CHALLENGE TAKES AIM AT A

15-MEMBER MEDICARE BOARD

CREATED TO KEEP CLAIMS IN

CHECK.

ANOTHER CHALLENGE COULD FATE

OF THE ENTIRE LAW IN

JEOPARDY.

LAST JUNE THE SUPREME COURT

RULED THAT THE INDIVIDUAL

MANDATE IS A TAX.

THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES

ALL TAXING MEASURES START IN

THE HOUSE.

BUT OPPONENTS ARGUE THE

FINAL VERSION OF THE BILL

THAT BECAME LAW ACTUALLY

ORIGINATED IN THE SENATE.

IF

THAT LAWSUIT SUCCEEDS,

THEN THE

OBAMA CARE BILL WAS

PASSED IN AN

UNCONSTITUTIONAL MANNER AND

IT WOULD BE STRICKEN.

Reporter: STILL, THE

ARGUMENT ON THE FAST-TRACK

IS THE CHALLENGE TO THE

CONTRACEPTION MANDATE.

WHICH OPPONENTS CALL A

THREAT TO RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY.

LAWYERS REPRESENTING

RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, WILL ARGUE

THAT CASE.

IF THEY ARE SUCCESSFUL,

OBAMACARE COULD END UP

BEFORE THE HIGH COURT BEFORE

THE END OF THE YEAR.

Pat: THIS MAKES YOU

SICK.

WE'RE GOING TO BE FIGHTING

THAT THING FOR YEARS AND

YEARS AND YEARS.

AND THERE WILL BE MORE AND

MORE CHALLENGES.

MAYBE THEY'LL CHIP AWAY AT

IT.

WITH US MORE, WITH MORE ON

THE FUTURE OF OBAMACARE, IS

JAY SECOLO.

HOBBY LOBBY SAYS THAT

INDIVIDUAL MANDATE VIAL

LASES THEIR RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM AND THEY FACE

INCREDIBLE TAXES AND

PENALTIES.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

ARE THEY GOING TO WIN OR

LOSE?

WE HAVE THREE CASES RIGHT

NOW INVOLVING PRIVATE

EMPLOYERS, NOT AS LARGE AS

HOBBY LOBBY, BUT BIG

COMPANIES, AND WE'VE WON ALL

THREE OF OUR CASES,

INCLUDING TWO COURT OF

APPEALS DECISIONS, ONE OUT

OF THE SEVENTH AND ONE OUT

OF THE EIGHTH CIRCUIT, BOTH

CONFIRMING AN INJUNCTION.

HOBBY LOBBY ACTUALLY IS THE

OUTTHEIR RIGHT NOW.

MOST OF THE COURT CASES --

WE'RE THREE FOR THREE ON OUR

CHALLENGES, BUT MOST OF THE

COURT CASES, THE COURTS OF

APPEALS AND THE DISTRICT

COURT JUDGES HAVE SAID THAT

THE H.H.S. MANDATE SHOULD BE

EN JOINED, AS FAR AS

ENFORCEMENT GOES, WHEN THERE

IS A LEGITIMATE, FREE

EXERCISE CHALLENGE.

HOBBY LOBBY JUST GOT A BAD

PANEL.

WHEN I SAY A JUDGE PANEL,

JUDGES THAT WERE NOT

HOSPITABLE TO THEIR

ARGUMENT.

NOT INCLINED TO VIEW THEIR

ARGUMENT AS ONE OF A FREE

EXERCISE CLAUSE.

I THINK IT WILL BE A REAL

CHALLENGE.

ULTIMATELY, AS YOU JUST

SAID, IT IS GOING TO GO TO

THE SUPREME COURT OF THE

UNITED STATES.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE THREE FOR

THREE AND ABOUT TO FILE TWO

MORE SUITS NOW.

Pat: WHAT IS THE

CENTRAL LEGAL PREMISES YOUR

WORKING ON TO GET THOSE

THINGS REVERSED?

PAT, IT IS REALLY

STRAIGHTFORWARD.

IT IS SOMETHING YOU AND I

TALKED ABOUT FOR YEARS.

THE IDEA THAT THE GOVERNMENT

WOULD PUT SOMETHING IN PLACE

THAT MANDATES OR REQUIRES

THAT YOU VIOLATE YOUR

CONSCIENCE WOULD MAKE THE

FOUNDERS SPIN THEIR HEADS.

THEY WOULDN'T BELIEVE THAT

THE GOVERNMENT WOULD COME IN

AND DEMAND THAT YOU VIOLATE

YOUR SINCERELY HELD

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

INTERESTINGLY, I THINK THE

REAL CHALLENGE IS GOING TO

BE, AND YOU MENTIONED THIS,

HOBBY LOBBY IS FACING

$1.3 MILLION A DAY IN

FINES.

THE GOVERNMENT, I THINK IF

IT WAS SMART, WOULD ABATE

THOSE FINES RIGHT NOW.

ABATE ENFORCEMENT, SO THEY

DON'T GO AFTER THOSE FINES

WHILE THESE CASES ARE

FINALLY ADJUDICATED,

ULTIMATELY AT THE SUPREME

COURT, RATHER THAN BURDENING

HOBBY LOBBY WITH THIS

EXTRAORDINARY FINE.

YOU COUPLE THE SITUATION

WITH THE H.H.S. MANDATE, AND

MOST OF THE STATES ARE NOT

GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO THE

STATE EXCHANGES THAT ARE

REQUIRED UNDER OBAMACARE.

YOU MENTIONED THE TAX ON

MEDICAL DEVICES, WHICH NOW

LIBERAL MEMBERS OF THE

SENATE HAVE SAID DON'T

ENFORCE THAT TAX.

IT COULD BE DEATH BY A

THOUSAND CUTS HERE, THE WAY

THIS IS GOING.

BUT WE'VE GOT A REAL

CHALLENGE AHEAD.

I DON'T WANT TO BELITTLE IT

IN ANY SITUATION.

IT IS A SIGNIFICANT

CHALLENGE WE HAVE.

BUT SO FAR WE'RE THREE FOR

THREE IN THESE H.H.S.

CASES.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THIS

CONTEXT THAT A TAX MEASURE

NEEDS TO START IN THE HOUSE

OF REPRESENTATIVES, AND THIS

BILL STARTED IN THE SENATE?

IS THERE ANY VALIDITY IN

THAT CLAIM?

I THINK THERE IS.

CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS CAME

UP WITH THE TAX THEORY,

WHICH I THINK IS A STRETCH

AS BEST.

I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH

THAT ANALYSIS.

AND THE GOVERNMENT ARGUED,

AND THE PRESIDENT SAID IT

WAS NOT A TAX, UNTIL THEY

GOT TO THE SUPREME COURT AND

RECOGNIZED THEIR ARGUMENT

WAS WEAK.

BUT IF IT IS A TAX, IT IS

SUPPOSED TO ORIGINAL NAT IN

THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

IT DID NOT.

THERE ARE CHALLENGES GOING

ON WITH THAT.

WILL THEY SAY THE HOUSE

CODIFIED THE SAME LANGUAGE?

I DON'T KNOW.

BUT THE REALITY IS ALL OF

THESE CHALLENGES ARE

IMPORTANT.

AND THEY ALL HAVE MERIT.

AND SOMETIMES IT TAKES

MULTIPLE CHALLENGES TO GET A

SPECIFIC PIECE OF

LEGISLATION OVERTURNED.

WE'RE WING ON THE H.H.S.

MANDATE CASES, AND WE'RE

LOOKING AT THE TAXING

AUTHORITY CASES AS WELL.

Pat: WHAT WAS GOING ON

IN JOHN ROBERT'S MIND?

HE IS A CONSERVATIVE.

WAS HE TRYING TO PRESERVE

THE INTEGRITY OF THE COURT

IN AN ELECTION YEAR?

WHAT DO YOU THINK IT WAS?

I THINK WHAT HAPPENED WAS

UNDER THE COMMERCE CLAUSE,

THIS WAS A SITUATION WHERE

THE OPINION WAS GREAT ON THE

COMMERCE CLAUSE, THAT

GOVERNMENT DID NOT HAVE THE

AUTHORITY TO REGULATE, UNDER

THE COMMERCE CLAUSE, THE

HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY.

THAT WAS A GREAT STATEMENT

FROM THE CHIEF JUSTICE OF

THE I UNDERSTAND.

UNITED STATES.

THE PROBLEM WAS THEY CAME UP

WITH THE TAXING ISSUE.

I'M A TAX LAWYER BY

TRAINING.

YOU KNOW THAT.

AND I WORKED FOR TREASURY.

IF IT WAS A TAX, THE CASE

SHOULDN'T BE IN THE SUPREME

COURT IN THE FIRST PLACE

BECAUSE THE ANTIINJUNCTION

ACT SAYS THAT A TAX CANNOT

BE CHALLENGED UNTIL IT IS

ACTUALLY ENFORCED.

SO THEY SHOULD HAVE

DISMISSED ALL OF THE CASES

AND LET US START ALL OVER

AGAIN.

THAT'S NOT WHAT THEY DID.

THEY FOUND IT A TAX FOR

CONGRESSIONAL AUTHORITY, BUT

NOT A TAX FOR THE

ANTI-INJUNCTION ACT?

SEVEN MONTHS LATER, I STILL

DON'T BUY IT.

IT DOESN'T WORK.

Pat: DEATH BY A

THOUSAND CUTS, IT LOOKS LIKE

IT WILL FALL SOONER OR

LATER.

THAT'S YOUR PROGNOSIS?

I THINK IT'S THE

ECONOMICS OF IT.

YOU TALKED ABOUT THIS A

LOT.

THE ECONOMICS OF THE

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT ARE JUST

OUTRAGEOUS.

BETWEEN THE MANDATES AND THE

INDIVIDUAL STATE EXCHANGES

THAT CAN'T GET OFF THE

GROUND -- I THINK IT WAS 15

OR 16 STATES SAID THEY THINK

THEY CAN DO EXCHANGES.

THE OTHER 35 CANNOT, WHICH

MEANS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

WILL HAVE TO.

WE KNOW WHAT THAT'S GOING TO

BE, A DISASTER.

THE IMPLEMENTATION OF

OBAMACARE COULD CAUSE IT TO

FALL ON ITS OWN, CAWBLED

COUPLED WITH THE LEGAL

CHALLENGES.

WE'VE GOT TO KEEP FIGHTING

THIS.

WE'LL BE REGRETTING IT FOR

GENERATIONS TO COME IF WE

DON'T GET IT OVERTURNED.

Pat: MY BROTHER, THANK

YOU FOR THE WORK YOU'RE

DOING.

WE'LL DO IT.

Pat: JAY SECOLO, THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND

JUSTICE, FIGHTING FOR YOUR

FREEDOM AND LIBERTY.

Kristi: COMING UP LATER

ON "THE 700 CLUB," WE'RE

GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW TO GET

THE MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK,

AND HOW TO DO JUST ABOUT

EVERYTHING A LITTLE CHEAPER,

A LITTLE FASTER, AND A

LITTLE BETTER.

PLUS, ONE GANGSTER WILLING

TO DIE FOR THE STREETS

ALMOST GETS EXACTLY WHAT HE

WANTED AFTER GETTING SHOT

SEVEN TIMES.

HEAR HIS STORY ON "THE 700

CLUB," UP NEXT.

.

Pat: IVAN HORDEN GREW

UP IN A TOUGH NEIGHBORHOOD.

HE WAS BULLIED.

HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT.

HE DECIDED AT THE TENDER AGE

OF 14 HE WOULD JOIN A GANG

THAT WERE KNOWN AS THE FOUR

CORNER HUSTLERS.

FOR IVAN, GANG LIFE OFFERED

A TICKET TO SUCCESS, EVEN

THOUGH HE WAS SHOT SEVEN

TIMES.

I HAD A GOAL THAT BY THE

TIME I WAS 25 YEARS OLD, I

WOULD ACQUIRE $360,000.

Reporter: BUT HARD WORK

WASN'T IN IVAN'S PLAN FOR

HIS RICHES.

IT WAS LIKE TAKING CANDY

FROM A BABY.

IT WAS JUST AS EASY AND

PROFITABLE.

Reporter: HIS PARENTS

WERE PASTORS OF A CHURCH,

AND IVAN LEARNED ABOUT GOD

AT AN EARLY AGE.

I WAS SINGING, STOMPING

MY FEET, SINGING IN THE

CHOIR.

MY MOTHER MADE US PRAY, AND

MY FATHER MADE US PRAY.

WE WERE DOING IT AS A DUTY.

Reporter: HIS PARENTS

DIVORCED WHEN HE WAS A

TEENAGER.

WITH HIS PARENTS OUT OF THE

HOME, HE FOUND ROLE MODELS

ON THE STREET.

I GREW UP ON THE SOUTH

SIDE OF CHICAGO.

PEOPLE DEALING DRUGS.

PEOPLE HAD GOOD CLOTHES ON

AND GOOD CARS.

ROW SO

Reporter: SO IVAN AND

HIS FRIENDS STARTED SELLING

DRUGS, AND THE MONEY POURED

IN.

AND HIS FAMILY NOTICED THE

CHANGE IN HIS LIFE.

I KEPT INCREASING IN IT,

AND THE FAMILY, THEY KNEW

ABOUT IT, AND THEY BEGAN TO

PRAY FOR MY DELIVERANCE.

Reporter: ONE AFTERNOON

HE GOT IN A CAR WITH A

FRIEND WHO WAS ON THE RUN

FROM A RIVAL GANG.

AS THEY TRIED TO GET AWAY,

THEY RAN RIGHT INTO THEIR

ENEMIES, AND HAD NO WAY TO

ESCAPE.

THE CAR WENT OUT OF GAS.

AND WHEN THE CAR WENT OUT OF

GAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THESE

MEN, THEY JUMPED OUT OF THE

VAN AND THEY BEGAN TO SHOOT

WITH MACHINE GUNS.

Reporter: THEY SPRAYED

THE CAR WITH BULLETS.

HIS FRIEND WAS SHOT 19 TIMES

AND KILLED.

IVAN WAS HIT SEVEN TIMES.

I GOT SHOT EN MY CHEST.

I GOT SHOT IN MY BACK.

I GOT SHOT IN MY STOMACH,

YOU KNOW, MULTIPLE TIMES.

Reporter: BUT EVEN

NEARLY GETTING KILLED WASN'T

ENOUGH FOR IVAN TO GET OUT

OF THE DRUG GAME.

THAT SHOWED ME, ARE YOU

WILLING TO DIE FOR THIS?

AS A YOUNG MAN, I THOUGHT IT

WOULD BE HONORABLE TO DIE

FOR THIS AND BE GLORIFIED

FOR SACRIFICING YOUR LIFE

FOR THE STREETS, FOR YOUR

NEIGHBORHOOD.

Reporter: WHILE IVAN

GOT IN DEEPER, SOME OF HIS

FRIENDS FOUND A WAY OUT AND

HAD BECOME CHRISTIANS.

ONE WAS HIS BARBER, WHO

HELPED IVAN SEE THERE WAS

ANOTHER WAY TO LIVE.

HE WAS ON THE STREETS

WITH US, BUT THEN HE CHANGED

HIS LIFE.

WHEN HE CHANGED HIS LIFE, HE

WAS AT PEACE WITH HIMSELF.

I WOULD LISTEN TO HIM.

Reporter: EVEN SO, IVAN

STILL BELIEVED HIS PEACE

WOULD COME WITH FINANCIAL

SECURITY, AND NOTHING WAS

GOING TO STOP HIM.

I SET GOALS TO GET INTO

THE 100,000 DOLLAR LEVEL.

AND THEN I SET GOALS TO GET

INTO THE 200,000 DOLLAR

LEVEL.

I CAME TO THE PLACE WHERE

I'VE GOT MY GOAL, AND I HAVE

EVERYTHING TO PROTECT

MYSELF.

Reporter: IVAN FELT

INVINCIBLE, UNTIL ONE DAY HE

AND HIS BROTHER WERE

AMBUSHED IN AN ALLEY BY SIX

MEN.

AND THEY HIT MY NINE

TIMES.

WHEN I SAW MY BROTHER GOT

SHOT, IT JUST SHOOK ME.

I FELT THE PRESENCE OF

DEATH.

I FELT LIKE I WOULD NOT MAKE

IT OUT OF THIS ALLEY.

AT THAT MOMENT, I REALLY

THANKED GOD, RIGHT THERE.

AND I WAS STILL A SINNER,

BUT I KNEW THAT IT WAS ONLY

GOD THAT I WAS STILL ALIVE.

Reporter: HIS BROTHER

ALSO SURVIVED THE ATTACK.

IVAN FINALLY RELIEVED THAT

MONEY WOULD NEVER PROVIDE

HIM THE SECURITY HE WANTED.

IT WAS HARD TO BREAK THAT

BELIEF.

I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD JUST

DIE ON THE STREETS.

MY PARENTS WAS -- THEY WAS

TELLING ME ABOUT THE LORD.

MY FATHER WAS WORKING WITH

ME IN FAITH.

HE WAS SHOWING ME DIFFERENT

SCRIPTURES AND TALKING TO

ME.

Reporter: HIS SISTER

GAVE HIM A VIDEO TAGE

VIDEOTAPE OF BISHOP T.D.

JAKES.

HE STARTED TALKING ABOUT

HOW WE TRY TO MANIPULATE OUR

LIVES AND PROVIDE OUR OWN

SECURITY FOR OUR LIVES.

ALL OF THESE THINGS I WAS

DOING.

IT SEEMED LIKE HE WAS JUST

TALKING TO ME, AND I HEARD

THE HOLY SPIRIT SAY, YOU

NEED TO LET IT GO.

AND I ACCEPTED CHRIST.

I BEGAN TO FEEL PEACE.

IT FELT LIKE I WAS BEING

CLEANSED FROM THE YEARS OF

BITTERNESS, THE YEARS OF

ANGER.

Reporter: HE CUT

TIES

WITH HIS GANG.

I CALLED EVERYONE WHO I

WAS INVOLVED WITH, YOU KNOW,

OTHER LEADERS, AND I TOLD

THEM, IT'S OVER FOR ME.

I HAD TOLD THEM THEY COULD

TAKE THE DRUGS AND THEY

COULD TAKE THE MONEY.

Reporter: IVAN

EVENTUALLY MOVED TO LIVE

WITH HIS DAD IN CALIFORNIA

AND BEGIN A NEW LIFE.

THE LOVE OF GOD IS SO

AMAZING.

IT'S SO AMAZING.

I DIDN'T DESERVE

IT AT

ALL,

BUT I RECEIVED IT.

WHEN HE CHOSE ME, IT IS JUST

A TESTAMENT TO HIS GRACE.

WHOEVER WILL ALLOW HIM TO

COME INTO THEIR HEART, HE

WILL DO GREAT THINGS FOR

THEM.

Pat: YOU KNOW, WHAT IS

YOUR GOAL?

IVAN HAD A GOAL.

HE SET A GOAL.

HE WANTED TO GET $360,000.

BIG DEAL.

SOME PEOPLE HAVE A GOAL,

THEY WANT TO HAVE A NICE

HOUSE.

OKAY, YOU GET THE HOUSE, SO

WHAT?

SOME PEOPLE WANT TO HAVE A

NICE FAMILY AND HAVE A

COUPLE OF KIDS.

SO YOU GET THE KIDS, SO

WHAT?

SOMEBODY WANTS TO BE A

SUCCESS IN POLITICS OR SOME

OTHER ENDEAVOR.

YOU WANT TO BE A TRACK STAR

OR YOU WANT TO RUN FAST OR

YOU WANT TO PLAY PRO

FOOTBALL OR PRO BASKETBALL.

WHAT IS THE THING THAT YOU

HAVE IN MIND?

AND WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

GET IT?

YOU KNOW SOMETHING, YOU

WON'T BE HAPPY BECAUSE THERE

IS ONLY ONE THING THAT WILL

MAKE YOU HAPPY, AND THAT IS

TO FIND PEACE WITH THE ONE

WHO MADE YOU.

AND WHEN YOU ARE ONE WITH

GOD ALMIGHTY, SUDDENLY THERE

IS JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL

OF GLORY.

MONEY WON'T DO IT.

RELATIONSHIPS WON'T DO IT.

SUCCESS AND FAME WON'T DO

IT.

ONLY JESUS CHRIST WILL FILL

THE EMPTY LONGING IN YOUR

HEART.

ST. AUGUSTINE SAID OUR

HEARTS ARE RESTLESS UNTIL WE

LAY REST IN THEE.

YOUR HEART IS RESTLESS UNTIL

IT RESTS IN JESUS CHRIST.

WOULD YOU LIKE HAPPINESS?

WOULD YOU LIKE CONTENTMENT?

WOULD YOU LIKE REST?

IF YOU WOULD, I WANT YOU TO

PRAY WITH ME RIGHT NOW.

I WANT YOU TO BOW YOUR HEAD

WHEREVER YOU ARE.

DO IT!

AND I WANT YOU TO SAY THESE

WORDS AND MEAN THEM IN YOUR

HEART.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT, SAY

IT WITH ME.

JESUS, YOU KNOW MY HEART.

YOU KNOW EVERYTHING I HAVE

DONE.

YOU KNOW THE LONGING IN MY

HEART.

YOU KNOW THE SIN I HAVE

COMMITTED.

YOU KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT

ME.

AND SO I COME TO YOU NOW,

LORD, AND I CONFESS THAT I'M

A SINNER.

AND I NEED A SAVIOR.

AND I ASK YOU, JESUS, RIGHT

NOW, HEAR MY PRAYER.

AND COME INTO MY HEART.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON,

LORD, I AM YOURS.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE

MINE.

THANK YOU, JESUS, FOR

HEARING MY PRAYER.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AND FOR THOSE WHO PRAYED

WITH ME, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO TO GET STARTED

AND GET GOING.

THIS IS CALLED A NEW DAY.

YOU'VE JUST BEGUN A NEW

DAY.

IF ANYBODY IS IN CHRIST, HE

IS A NEW CREATION.

ALL THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY,

ALL HAS BECOME NEW.

I'LL GIVE YOU THIS.

IT HAS A C.D. IN HERE.

IT HAS A BOOK OF SCRIPTURES

AND REAL GOOD STUFF.

AND I'LL GIVE THIS TO YOU

FREE.

NO FINANCIAL OBLIGATION

WHATSOEVER.

PLEASE CALL AND SAY I PRAYED

WITH PAT.

I'VE GIVEN MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I

BELONG TO JESUS CHRIST.

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER IS ON

YOUR SCREEN.

1-800-759-0700.

CALL NOW.

CALL NOW.

AND SHARE WHAT YOU JUST

DID.

KRISTI?

Kristi: THANK YOU,

PAT.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, IT'S ONE

OF THE MOST COMMON NEW

YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS, TO GET

OUT OF DEBT.

WE'RE GOING TO INTRODUCE YOU

TO ONE WOMAN WHO HAS DONE

JUST THAT, AND SHE'LL SHOW

YOU THE WAYS THAT YOU CAN DO

IT, TOO.

Reporter: WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

VICE PRESIDENT JOSEPH BIDEN

IS KICKING OFF A SERIES OF

MEETINGS, LOOKING FOR WAYS

TO DECREASE GUN VIOLENCE IN

THE U.S.

BIDEN WILL MEET TODAY WITH

VICTIMS' GROUPS, AND GUN

SAFETY ORGANIZATIONS, AND

TOMORROW WITH THE NATIONAL

RIFLE ASSOCIATION AND OTHER

GUN-OWNER GROUPS.

HE WILL ALSO MEET WITH

REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE

VIDEO AND ENTERTAINMENT

INDUSTRIES.

BUT NEW LEGISLATION ISN'T

LIKELY ANY TIME SOON.

MANY GROUPS ALREADY OPPOSE

NEW RESTRICTIONS ON GUNS.

AND SOME REPUBLICAN

LAWMAKERS SAY THEY WILL

FOCUS ON THE BUDGET UNTIL

SPRING.

THE WIDOW OF SLAIN EGGGERS

AND LOU GIGLIO ARE SCHEDULED

TO PRAY AT PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

INAUGURATION.

THEY WILL PRAY.

SHE SOUGHT FOR JUSTICE FOR

30 YEARS AFTER HER HUSBAND

WAS SHOT DOWN IN 1963.

THE REVEREND WILL DELIVER

THE BENEDICTION AT THE

PUBLIC CEREMONY.

GIGLIO HOSTED THE ANNUAL

PASSION CONFERENCE IN

ATLANTA, AND HE IS AN

ADVOCATE FOR ENDING

MODERN-DAY SLAVERY.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS THE TWO

REPRESENT THE IDLES OF

JUSTICE AND OPPORTUNITY THAT

HE PURSUES.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO OUR

WEBSITE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED.

PAT AND KRISTI WILL BE BACK

AFTER THIS.

Kristi: MARY HUNT

NOTION WHAT IT TAKES TO GET

OUT OF DEBT.

WHY?

BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN THERE.

SHE AND HER FAMILY WERE

$100,000 IN THE RED, BEFORE

HER HUSBAND LOST HIS JOB.

THAT'S WHEN MARY RESOLVED TO

STRETCH EVERY DOLLAR AS FAR

AS SHE COULD, AND LIVE A

LIFE THAT WAS CHEAPER,

BETTER, AND FASTER.

MARY HUNT NEVER ASPIRED TO

BE A MONEY-SAVING TIP

EXPERT, BUT THAT'S WHAT

HAPPENED AFTER SHE STARTED

CHEAPSKATE MONTHLY, A

PUBLICATION CHOCK FULL OF

MONEY AND TIME SAVING

IDEAS.

HER NUGGETS OF ADVICE, LIKE

USING BAKING SODA AS ANT

REPELLENT, WILL HELP YOU DO

THINGS CHEAPER, FASTER,

BETTER, ONE TIP AT A TIME.

Kristi: MARY HUNT IS

THE AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK

"CHEAPER, FASTER, AND

BETTER."

MARY, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING HERE.

THANK YOU.

Kristi: IT IS

SURPRISING, BUT WHEN I WAS

LOOKING AT YOUR RESEARCH,

AND IT SAID AT ONE POINT YOU

WERE OVER $100,000 IN DEBT.

AND THAT WAS

NON-MORTGAGED DEBT.

Kristi: WHAT HAPPENED?

I WAS THE BEST CONSUMER

IN THE WORLD.

I DID WHAT THEY SAID, GET

CREDIT CARDS TO COVER

EMERGENCIES.

I TRUSTED MASTERCARD AND

VISA SO MUCH MORE THAN I

TRUSTED GOD.

YOU START DEPENDING ON IT.

AND IT IS LIKE A SNOWBALL

KEEPS GROWING AND GROWING

UNTIL IT TURNS INTO AN

AVALANCHE.

Kristi: IT WAS HORRIBLE

AT THAT TIME.

AWFUL.

Kristi: IT WASN'T JUST

AWFUL FROM A FINANCIAL

STANDPOINT.

WHAT DID IT DO TO YOU AS A

WOMAN, AS A PERSON?

YOU KNOW, BUILDING UP

THAT KIND OF DEBT REQUIRES

THAT YOU DO A LOT OF THINGS

IN SECRET.

THAT IS NOT GOOD FOR A

MARRIAGE.

I BUILT THIS HUGE WALL

BETWEEN MY HUSBAND AND

MYSELF.

HE DIDN'T TRUST ME, AND I

DIDN'T TRUST HIM TO BE THE

PROVIDER TO OR HOME.

IT IS TERRIBLE WERE DEBT CAN

DO TO YOUR LIFE.

IT CAN DESTROY YOUR LIFE.

I'M TESTIMONY TO THAT.

THANK GOD MY MARRIAGE WAS

SAVED, BUT IT TOOK A LOT OF

YEARS OF CHANGING, AND WHO I

WAS.

HAVING A COME TO JESUS

MOMENT.

AND REALIZING GOD REALLY

DOES CARE

ABOUT MY NEEDS AND

HE KNOWS MY WANTS.

Kristi: LET'S TALK

ABOUT SOME OF THE STEPS YOU

TOOK TO GET YOU OUT OF THAT

AVALANCHE.

THE FIRST THING WAS

CHANGING MY FOCUS.

I HAD TO LEARN THAT IT WAS

GOOD FOR ME TO SCRIMP AND

SAVE LIKE CRAZY.

SO THAT I WOULD HAVE MONEY

TO PAY BACK DEBT.

TO GIVE, TO SAVE, TO DO

THINGS THAT DO MATTER.

SO WHILE THESE THINGS MIGHT

SEEM KIND OF SILLY OR NOT

USEFUL, THEY REALLY ARE

BECAUSE THEY CHANGE YOUR

FOCUS AND SAYING BEING

FRUGAL IS A GREAT, GREAT

THING.

EVERYTHING WE'RE GOING TO

TALK ABOUT, THERE ARE

COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS YOU CAN

BUY, BUT THEY COST A LOT OF

MONEY.

WHY DO IT IF YOU HAVE STUFF

AROUND THE HOUSE THAT WILL

DO IT JUST AS WELL.

HOW ABOUT YOUR COMPUTER

MONITOR AND YOUR TELEVISION

SCREEN, FILTHY.

YOU CAN BUY A REALLY

EXPENSIVE THING OR YOU CAN

TAKE A DRYER SHEET.

IT CAN BE A USED ONE.

YOU DUST IT DOWN.

LOOK AT HOW IT CATCHES ALL

OF THAT DUST.

AND IT ALSO ELIMINATES THAT

STATIC THAT IS GOING TO

COLLECT THE DUST IN THE

FUTURE.

Kristi: AND IT MAKES

YOUR HOUSE SMELL GOOD.

MORE TIPS, MARY.

KRISTI, WHAT ABOUT THIS.

THIS IS A CANDLE.

WE HAVE A LOT OF THESE AFTER

THE HOLIDAYS.

THEY LOOK GROSS AND GRUNGY,

BUT THERE IS TONS OF CANDLE

LEFT.

TAKE A USED DRYER SHEET AND

MOISMOISTEN.

IT WILL CLEAN THE BLACK OFF

AND MAKE IT LIKE NEW.

THIS MAKES MY HEART SING

BECAUSE I DIDN'T SPEND ANY

MONEY TO DO IT, BUT I SAVED

A PRODUCT.

Kristi: I LOVE IT, AND

IT MAKES IT AS GOOD AS NEW.

WHAT ABOUT A DRY ERASE

BOARD.

GRUNGY.

YOU TAKE A CHALKBOARD ERASER

AND YOU CAN CLEAN IT THAT

WAY.

BUT YOU STILL SEE SOME

GHOSTS.

YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING,

MOI MOISTEN A USED POLISH

SHEET, AND IT WILL MAKE IT

BRAND NEW.

I LOVE IT.

Kristi: I KEEP THINKING

THAT THE DRYER SHEETS ARE

THE MAGIC FORMULA THAT WE

MISSED ALL OF OUR LOVES.

I KIND OF LOVE THOSE

THINGS.

OH, DEAR, HAVE YOU EVER

SNAGGED YOUR PANTIHOSE.

Kristi: GIRL, DON'T GET

ME STARTED.

ALL THE TIME.

HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN DO,

A RESCUE.

OPEN THE DESK DRAWER AND GET

OUT THE GLUE STICK, AND DAB

IT ON TO THE HOLE, LET IT

DRY, AND YOU'VE RESCUED IT.

IT IS NOT GOING TO RUN.

YOU'VE GOT PLENTY OF TIME TO

REPLACE THAT WITHOUT HAVING

TO RUN TO THE STORE --

Kristi: TO GO AND BUY

ANOTHER $20 PAIR OF

STOCKINGS.

WHAT ABOUT THE BLING.

Kristi: I'M ALL ABOUT

THE BLING.

YOU CAN BUY A LOT OF

EXPENSIVE STUFF TO KEEP

JEWELRY CLEAN.

DON'T BOTHER.

IF YOU HAD BEEN TO HAVE ANY

DENTURE TABLETS AROUND -- MY

MOTHER-IN-LAW LEFT ME A

WHOLE BUNCH.

IT IS A GREAT JEWELRY

CLEANER.

TAKE THE WATER, PUT THE

TABLET IN, LET IT FIZZ UP,

AND GO AHEAD AND DROP YOUR

GRUNGY JEWELRY IN THERE,

LEAVE IT OVERNIGHT OR FOR A

COUPLE OF HOURS.

AND BRUSH IT WITH A TOOK

BRUSH.

Kristi: IT MAKES SENSE,

IF YOU CAN DROP YOUR TEETH

IN, WHY NOT THE JEWELRY.

YOU NEED TO GET A SPRAY

BOTTLE.

Kristi: YES, WE DO.

I'M SORRY.

THAT WAS MY FAULT.

THIS IS FANTASTIC.

THERE IS A COMMERCIAL

PRODUCT YOU CAN GET TO KEEP

THE CLING OUT OF YOUR

CLOTHES.

YOU SPRAY IT ON.

IT IS EXPENSIVE.

DON'T BUY THAT.

YOU TAKE ONE PART OF LIQUID

FABRIC SOFTENER, AND 20

PARTS OF WATER.

PUT IT INTO THE SPRAY BOTTLE

AND YOU'VE GOT YOUR OWN.

Kristi: YOU SPRAY IT ON

THE CLOTHES AND IT GETS RID

OF THE STATIC?

EXACTLY.

Kristi: IT DOESN'T

SPOT?

NO.

IT IS A VERY, VERY LIGHT

MIST.

Kristi: AND ONCE AGAIN,

YOU SMELL GOOD.

I'M ALL ABOUT THE SMELL.

I KNOW.

THIS IS GREAT.

I HAVE TO CONFESS, I DID

THIS MORNING IN THE HOTEL.

YOU KNOW HOW WHEN YOU HAVE A

SWEATER ON THE HANGER, AND

YOU GET THESE POKEY THINGS.

JUST PULL OUT THE

HAIRDRYER.

PUT IT ON WARM, PUT THE

SWEATER ON, YUP, AND IT GETS

RID OF THESE.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT.

AND THAT'S BETTER BECAUSE

I'M AT HOME, I TEND TO PUT

THEM IN A DRYER, SO WHEN

YOU'RE AT A HOTEL, WHAT DO

YOU DO?

WHAT ABOUT THE NAIL POLISH.

THIS IS FUNNY.

A READER WROTE AND TOLD ME

ENOUGH, AND SURE ENOUGH, I

NEEDED TO USE IT AND IT

WORKS GREAT.

CLEAR NAIL POLISH WILL BE A

GREAT GLUE IN A PINCH.

IF YOU NEED TO PUT A STAMP

ON A LETTER.

EVEN PUTTING YOUR FAKE

FINGERNAILS ON IF YOU EVER

LOSE ONE, DO IT WITH THE

CLEAR NAIL POLISH.

Kristi: WHO WOULD HAVE

THUNK IT.

THIS ONE, MARY, IS MY

FAVORITE.

SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD.

YOU'VE GOT THE REMOTE AND

THE BATTERIES GO OUT.

YOU DON'T HAVE ANY NEW

BATTERIES IN THE HOUSE.

POP THE BATTERIES OUT, TAKE

A REGULAR PENCIL ERASER, RUB

IT OVER THE CONTACTS, THAT

WILL CLEAN THEM UP, AND PUT

THAT BATTERY BACK IN.

YOU'LL GET A COUPLE MORE

USES.

Kristi: LET ME TELL YOU

WHY THAT IS MY FAVORITE,

BECAUSE WHEN YOU HAVE A

9-YEAR-OLD BOY WHO'S EVERY

TOY HAS A BATTERY.

I LOVE THAT IDEA.

THAT'S WHAT I NEED TO DO,

GET HIM AN ERASER FOR

CHRISTMAS.

THANK YOU, MARY, SO MUCH.

IF YOU WANT TO CHECK OUT ONE

OF THOUSANDS OF MARY'S TIPS,

HERE IS HER BOOK, AND ITS

CALLED "CHEAPER, BETTER,

FASTER."

AND IT IS AVAILABLE

NATIONWIDE.

THANK YOU, MARY, FOR BEING

HERE.

AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR

WONDERFUL TIPS.

PAT, BACK OVER TO YOU.

Pat: AMAZING.

STILL AHEAD, WE'VE BEEN

TALKING ABOUT CHEAPER,

BETTER, AND FASTER.

YOU'LL HEAR HOW ONE FAMILY

GOT THEIR BABY'S HORRIBLE

SKIN CONDITION CURED FREE OF

CHARGE.

WATCH THIS.

Pat: SOMEWHERE ALONG

THE WAY, HOLLYWOOD HAS

GLAMOURIZED THE GYPSY LIFE,

VIOLINS AND DANCING AND

FESTIVALS AND ALL OF THAT

KIND OF STUFF.

AND THEN THIEVES AND CROOKS

AND SO FORTH.

BUT THE TRUTH IS, FOR THE

GYPSIES IN THE UKRAINE, IT

IS A LIFE OF GRINDING

POVERTY.

AND THE PARENTS IN THIS NEXT

STORY HAD A BABY WITH FOUR

DIFFERENT ILLNESSES.

BUT THIS GYPSY FAMILY HAD NO

MONEY TO SEE A DOCTOR.

Reporter: JANE AND HER

FAMILY HAVE

A SIMPLE BUT

HARD LIFE IN THIS GYPSY CAMP

IN WESTERN UKRAINE.

THEY'VE LIVED THERE THEIR

WHOLE LIVES, AND BARELY HAVE

ENOUGH TO FEED AND TAKE CARE

OF THEIR CHILDREN.

SHE AND HER HUSBAND ARE

ESPECIALLY WORRIED ABOUT

THEIR YOUNGEST DAUGHTER,

CHRISTINA, WHO SUFFERS FROM

A SEVERE SKIN DISORDER.

SHE IS ALWAYS IN PAIN.

SHE CRIES CONSTANTLY AND

CANNOT SLEEP AT NIGHT.

Reporter: JANE WASHES

THE LITTLE GIRL'S CLOTHES BY

HAND, CLEANS HER NECK, AND

APPLIES THE ONLY CREAM SHE

CAN AFFORD.

IT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING TO

MAKE HER BETTER OR REDUCE

HER PAIN.

I CANNOT HELP HER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

ORGANIZED A FREE MEDICAL

OUTREACH IN THIS VILLAGE,

THE PASTOR TOLD US ABOUT

CHRISTINA AND THE REST OF

HER FAMILY.

WE VISITED THEIR HOME AND

SAW HOW DESPERATELY THE

LITTLE GIRL NEEDED HELP.

SHE WAS MALNOURISHED AND

UNDER WEIGHT, AND WE

DIAGNOSED HER WITH

BRONCHITIS, AND DISORDERS OF

HER INTERNAL ORGANS, AND

OBVIOUSLY DERMATITIS.

BUT WE

WILL TREAT ALL OF

THESE PROBLEMS FOR SURE.

Reporter: WE TOOK THE

FAMILY FOOD, CLOTHES, AND

ALL OF THE RIGHT MEDICINES

CHRISTINA NEEDED TO

RECOVER.

WE TAUGHT JANE HOW TO CARE

FOR HER DAUGHTER, AND

CHRISTINA'S CONDITION

STARTED TO IMPROVE

IMMEDIATELY.

TO HELP THE FAMILY, WE GAVE

THEM CHICKENS, PLUS A

WASHING MACHINE, SO

CHRISTINA'S AND EVERY ELSE'S

CLOTHES CAN BE CLEAN AND

FRESH.

A FEW MONTHS LATER, WE

STOPPED TO VISIT WITH JANE

AND HER FAMILY.

WE WERE HAPPY TO SEE

CHRISTINA'S SKIN HAD CLEARED

UP, AND SHE HAD NO PAIN AT

ALL.

SHE SLEEPS WELL, HAS GOOD

MEALS, AND EVERYTHING GOING

VERY WELL FOR ALL OF US.

Reporter: AND JANE WAS

HAVING A MUCH EASIER TIME

TAKING CARE OF HER

CHILDREN.

MY LIFE GOT SO MUCH

BETTER AFTER YOU GAVE ME A

WASHING MACHINE.

AND BECAUSE OF YOUR HELP,

CHRISTINA DOESN'T GET SICK

NOW.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Pat: MY LIFE IS SO MUCH

BETTER BECAUSE OF A WASHING

MACHINE.

IT TAKES A LITTLE SOMETHING

TO MAKE SOMEBODY'S LIFE SO

MUCH BETTER, JUST A LITTLE

SOMETHING.

AND WE'RE ABLE TO REACH OUT

TO PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE DO IT IN THE NAME OF THE

LORD AND IN YOUR NAME.

AND YOUR CONTRIBUTION, YOUR

"700 CLUB" MEMBERSHIP, IS

HELPING PEOPLE ALL OVER THE

WORLD BECAUSE GOD LOVES

THEM, AND WE CARE.

NOW, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

IT'S CALLED "GOD'S PLAN FOR

AMERICA, HOW TO PREPARE FOR

THE DAYS AHEAD."

AND THIS IS A D.V.D., A

DIGITAL VIDEO --

Kristi: DISC.

I BELIEVE IT IS DIGITAL

VIDEO DISC.

I THINK THAT'S WHAT IT IS.

Pat: THIS IS THE DISC,

AND IT IS -- I HAD TO BREAK

SOMETHING TO GET IT.

THERE YOU GO.

"GOD'S PLAN FOR AMERICA."

DID YOU WATCH IT?

Kristi: OF COURSE I

WATCHED IT.

AND IT'S VERY GOD.

Pat: WE'LL GIVE THAT TO

PEOPLE WHEN THEY JOIN "THE

700 CLUB," THAT'S $20 A

MONTH.

LET'S HELP MORE PEOPLE.

YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING

THIS NEW YEAR, LET'S REACH

OUT TO THOSE LESS

FORTUNATE.

Kristi: YOU READY FOR

THE NEXT THING?

Pat: I'M TOTALLY

READY.

Kristi: UP NEXT, WE'RE

GOING TO BRING IT ON WITH

YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PEOPLE WROTE IN, AND ELAINE

SAID, "PAT, ON MONDAY YOU

TOLD US THREE THINGS TO LOSE

WAIT" BUT I GUESS THEY

MISSED IT, SO PAT IS GOING

TO SHARE IT AGAIN.

SO WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GO

AWAY.

Pat: I CAN HARDLY

WAIT.

Kristi: A LITTLE

EARLIER ON THE PROGRAM, WE

TALKED ABOUT ONE OF PROBABLY

THE MOST COMMON NEW YEAR'S

RESOLUTIONS, WHICH IS TO GET

OUT OF DEBT.

BUT PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST

POPULAR RESOLUTIONS, HOW TO

LOSE WEIGHT.

LORRAINE ASKS PAT -- "PAT,

ON MONDAY'S SHOW, YOU

MENTIONED THREE THINGS THAT

YOU TAKE TO AID IN WEIGHT

LOSS.

CAN YOU REVIEW IT ONE MORE

TIME?"

BECAUSE SHE MISSED IT.

I MISSED IT, TOO, BY THE

WAY.

Pat: THE FIRST ONE IS

CUT DOWN YOUR EATING.

I DON'T HAVE NEAR AS MUCH

APPETITE.

I MADE A BOWL OF CEREAL AND

I COULDN'T EAT BUT HALF OF

IT.

SO THAT'S GOOD.

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF THINGS

CALL THERMOGENIC, AND THEY

HELP BURN OFF FAT.

THE FIRST IS SOMETHING

CALLED TRIPLE STRENGTH GREEN

TEA.

YOU CAN GET IT IN THE HEALTH

FOOD STORE.

THEY'VE GOT IT NOW TRIPLE

STRENGTH.

AND GREEN TEA IS GOOD FOR

YOU.

AND IT ALSO HELPS -- IT

CAUSES YOUR BODY TO START

BURNING FAT.

Kristi: GOOD TO KNOW.

Pat: THREE LITTLE

PILLS.

THE SECOND THING IS

EXTREMELY GOOD FOR YOUR

MIND.

IT WILL HELP WARD OFF

ALZHEIMER'S AND MAKE YOU

MORE ALERT AND SHARP WHEN

YOU GET OLD.

AND WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG, YOU

CAN REMEMBER STUFF.

[LAUGHTER]

Kristi: I TRY.

Pat: CALLED A AS AS

ACYTL.

L-CARNITINE.

I DAYBREA TAKE ABOUT THREE

OR FOUR OF THEM.

THE OTHER ONE, ALONG WITH

THAT IS SOMETHING CALLED

ALPHA LIPOIC ACID.

ONE PILL.

THAT'S ALL YOU NEED.

THAT IS A WONDERFUL THING

FOR CLEARING OUT YOUR

ARTERIES AND MAKING YOU

ALERT AND SHARP, BUT IT ALSO

HELPS BURN FAT.

Kristi: MY THREE ARE:

DRINK A LOT OF WATER, GET

OFF THE COUCH AND START

MOVING, AND WHEN IT COMES TO

EATING, MODIFY, EVEN USE A

SAUCER RATHER THAN A PLATE.

IT IS ALL ABOUT PORTION

CONTROL.

Pat: YOU CAN DO THE

PORTION CONTROL, BUT THIS

OTHER MAKES YOUR BODY BURN

IT.

AND IF YOU DO A LITTLE

EXERCISE, ESPECIALLY IN THE

MORNING, YOU START THAT

FACTORY GOING AND YOU START

BURNING FAT.

YOU ASKED FOR IT, AND NOW

YOU'VE GOT IT.

AND IF IT DOESN'T WORK --

Kristi: BLAME PAT.

Pat: BLAME THE VITAMIN

COMPANY.

THEY DON'T MAKE CLAIMS LIKE

THIS.

Kristi: MAXIM SAYS,

"I'M 17 YEARS OLD, AND I

NOTICED THERE HAS BEEN A

CHANGE IN MY FATHER'S

BEHAVIOR.

HE SPENDS TOO MUCH TIME AT

THE COMPUTER PLAYING A WAR

GAME.

I NOTICED HOW ALONE MY MOM

FEELS, AND I JUST WANT MY

FATHER TO SPEND MORE TIME

WITH MY MOM.

WHAT CAN I DO?

I KIND OF FELL ASHAMED FOR

HIM.

HELP."

Pat: DO SOMETHING TO

TRY TO GET THEM OUT OF THE

HOUSE.

A ROMANTIC RESORT, ASSUMING

THEY CAN AFFORD IT.

BE ALONE WITH EACH OTHER AND

SEE IF THEY CAN REKINDLE

THAT ROMANCE.

THE ROMANCE HAS OBVIOUSLY

GONE OUT OF THE

RELATIONSHIP.

IT MAY BE YOUR MOM ISN'T AS

SWEET AS YOU THINK SHE IS.

SHE MAY BE KIND OF

HARD-NOSED.

YOU SAY MY FATHER IS NOT

PAYING ATTENTION TO MOM.

BUT IS MOM --

Kristi: PAT, HOW ARE

YOU GOING TO BLAME THE

MOTHER?

Pat: IT IS EASY TO

BLAME THE MOTHER.

A WOMAN CAME TO A PREACHER I

KNOW, AND IT IS SO FUNNY,

AND SHE WAS AWFUL LOOKING,

HER HAIR WAS ALL TORN UP AND

SHE WAS OVERWEIGHT, AND HER

CLOTHES WERE BAD AND

EVERYTHING.

AND SHE SAID, OH, REVEREND,

WHAT CAN I DO?

MY HUSBAND HAS STARTED TO

DRINK.

AND THE PREACHER LOOKED AT

HER, AND SAID, MADAM, IF I

WAS MARRIED TO YOU, I WOULD

START TO DRINK, TOO.

Kristi: OH, MY GOSH.

Pat: WE NEED TO

CULTIVATE ROMANCE, DARLING.

THE MEN HAVE GOT TO BE

CULTIVATING ROMANCE, AND THE

WOMAN.

YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO KEEP THAT

SPARK OF LOVE ALIVE.

IT ISN'T SOMETHING WHERE YOU

JUST LIE THERE.

I'M MARRIED TO HIM, SO HE

HAS TO TAKE ME SLOPPY

LOOKING.

YOU'VE GOT TO LOOK PRETTY.

THE CHILD SAID, WHAT DO I DO

WITH MY PARENTS?

GET THEM OUT OF THE HOUSE.

GET THEM OFF ON A NICE

ROMANTIC WEEKEND.

OKAY, NEXT QUESTION.

Kristi: OKAY.

Pat: IT COMES AFTER 58

YEARS OF MARRIAGE.

I KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING

ABOUT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Kristi: AMANDA SAID,

RECENTLY I'VE COME TO THE

CONCLUSION THAT THERE IS NO

PURPOSE IN LIFE.

I WAKE UP, I GO TO WORK, I

GO HOME, AND I DO IT AGAIN.

FOR 50 MISERABLE YEARS AND

THEN YOU DIE.

THERE IS NO PURPOSE FOR MY

LIFE, AND I DON'T WANT TO BE

HERE ANYMORE.

EVERYONE SAYS LIFE IS WHAT

YOU MAKE IT, BUT I TRY TO

MAKE MY LIFE FUN, BUT I'M

MISERABLE AND EMPTY.

WHY AM I HERE?"

Pat: YOU'VE GOT A

QUESTION ASKED BY MILLIONS

AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

YOU KNOW IT IS MORE BLESSED

TO GIVE THAN RECEIVE.

I RECOMMEND IF YOU'VE GOT A

FEW BUCKS IN YOUR BANK

ACCOUNT, GO TO INDIA.

GO ON A MISSION TRIP AND SEE

HOW THE PEOPLE IN INDIA

LIVE, AND COMPARE THAT TO

YOUR LIFE.

GO TO A LEPER COLONY IN

AFRICA, WHERE PEOPLE'S

FINGERS ARE FALLING OFF, AND

THEN STOP COMPLAINING.

YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT TO LEARN

WHAT'S THE MOST EXCITING

THING IN LIFE?

IT IS TO HELP SOMEBODY.

IT REALLY IS.

SO YOU SIT HERE AND SAY,

WHAT CAN BE DONE FOR ME?

AND WE HAVE A FOR-ME

SOCIETY.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH THESE

WORDS FROM JESUS: "HE WHO

HEARS MY WORD AND BELIEVES

IN HIM WHO SENT ME HAS

EVERLASTING LIFE."

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
