STAGE.

LATEST ON WHITE HOUSE MEETINGS.

PLUS THE CHILD PORN STING

THOUSANDS OF ORPHANS GROWING UP

WITHOUT PARENTS AND SEPARATED

FROM THEIR CULTURE.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

HAS DRAWN MUCH ATTENTION AFTER

THE TRAGIC SHOOTINGS.

OBAMA'S POINT MAN TO COME UP

WORSE CONSEQUENCES.

PAUL STRAND REPORTS FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE

REPORTER: VICE PRESIDENT

BIDEN MET WITH RELATIVES OF

VICTIMS THAT DIED AND SPOKE OF

THE NEWTOWN, CONNECTICUT

TRAGEDY.

I DON'T THINK ANYTHING THAT

HAS TOUCHED THE HEART OF THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE SO PROFOUNDLY AS

SEEING THOSE YOUNG CHILDREN

GETTING RIDDLED WITH BULLETS.

WE HAVE TO HAVE A BROADER

ISSUE AND DISCUSS WHAT WE CAN DO

TO PREVENT THE 10,000 MURDERS,

30,000 GUN DEATHS EVERY YEAR.

PRESIDENT OBAMA TASKED VICE

PRESIDENT BIDEN.

BIDEN PROMISED WHITE HOUSE

ACTION, EVEN SOME WITHOUT

CONGRESS'S SAY SO.

THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO

TAKE EXECUTIVE ACTION.

WE HAVEN'T DECIDED WHAT THAT IS.

THEY'LL LIKELY UPSET OBAMA

OPPONENTS AND EXECUTIVE ORDERS

HIS ADMINISTRATION HAS COME UP

WITH FREE OF ANY INPUT FROM

CONGRESS.

ALSO LAWS THE WHITE HOUSE WANTS

CONGRESS TO PASS.

THE PRESIDENT HAS CALLED ON

CONGRESS TO ACT ON.

TALL BATTLING OVER BUDGETS,

DEBT LIMITS AND THE LIKE WILL

FORE STALL GUN CONTROL FOR AT

LEAST THREE MONTHS.

BIDEN WILL TALK WITH THE

NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION.

WE ARE REACHING OUT TO ALL

PARTIES ON WHATEVER SIDE OF THIS

DEBATE.

NRA IS LIKELY TO BE THE MOST

POWERFUL OPPONENT AS A THREAT TO

THEIR LIBERTY AND SECOND

AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

PAUL RYAN, CBN NEWS, WASHINGTON.

TWO OF THE ARRESTS MADE LESS

THAN 24 HOURS AFTER AGENTS

RELEASED THE SUSPECT'S PHOTOS IN

THE MEDIA.

11 YEARS AGO.

RESULTS WERE SIGNIFICANT BUT

GRIM AND COMMANDS ABSOLUTELY,

ABSOLUTELY COMMANDS OUR FULL

ATTENTION AS A NATION.

ICE AGENCIES CHILD

PORNOGRAPHY IS A GROWING

BUSINESS AND STREAMED LIVE

WORLDWIDE AND THE CRIMINALS

AREN'T OFTEN STRANGERS TO THEIR

YOUNG VICTIMS.

44 OF OUR VICTIMS WERE LIVING

WITH THE VERY PERSON WHO WAS

SEXUALLY ABUSING THEM.

THEY ARE IDENTIFIED AND

RESCUED 123 VICTIMS, 110 IN THE

U.S., 46 YOUNGER THAN 12 AND 5

WERE UNDER THE AGE OF 3.

IT IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM.

FASTEST GROWING CRIME IN

AMERICA.

YEARS, NATIONAL CENTER FOR

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

PART OF 'OBAMACARE' HAS BEEN

QUIETLY REPEALED.

PART OF THE FISCAL CLIFF DEAL.

CONGRESS OVERTURNED THE CLASS

ACT.

IT WAS A NEW ENTITLEMENT PROGRAM

FOR LONG-TERM CARE.

HERITAGE FOUNDATION REPORTS, THE

PROGRAM WAS SO POORLY DESIGNED,

ONE OF ITS OWN ADMINISTRATORS

SAID THE PROGRAM COULD COLLAPSE.

FIVE NEW TAXES INSTITUTED BY

'OBAMACARE' COULD KICK IN,

MEDICAL DEVICE TAX.

AL FRANK AND JOHN KERRY ASKED

HARRY REID TO DELAY THE TAX

BECAUSE IT IS EXPECTED TO RAISE

HEALTH CARE TAX.

HEALTH CARE MEASURE IS FACING A

GROWING NUMBER OF LEGAL

CHALLENGES.

RELIGIOUS BUSINESS OWNERS AND

FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS SAY IT

VIOLATES THEIR RIGHTS BY FORCING

THEM TO PROVIDE ABORTION PLANS.

JAY SEKULOW SAYS THIS IS CASE

THAT IS ONE THAT WILL ULTIMATELY

BE DECIDED BY THE SUPREME COURT.

IDEA THAT THE GOVERNMENT

WOULD MANDATE OR REQUIRE THAT

YOU VIOLATE YOUR CONSCIENCE

WOULD MAKE THE FOUNDERS SPIN

THEIR HEADS.

THEY WOULDN'T BELIEVE THE

GOVERNMENT WOULD DEMAND YOU

VIOLATE YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

CLAIM IS ON THE CONSTITUTION AND

STATUTORY RIGHTS AS WELL.

ERICK STAKELBECK REPORTS

REPORTER: BY THE YEAR 2015,

IRAN COULD HAVE MISSILES CAPABLE

OF REACHING THE EAST COAST OF

THE UNITED STATES.

THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO CRIPPLE

THEIR GREAT SATAN SOONER THROUGH

ELECTRO MAGNETIC PULSE OR EMP.

WITHIN A YEAR OF EMP EVENT,

TWO-THIRDS WOULD PERISH FROM

STARVATION AND DISEASE.

IT IS A HIGH TECH MEANS OF

KILLING PEOPLE THE OLD FASHION

WAY.

EMITTING POWERFUL ELECTRO

ELECTROMAGNET CALL GRIDS.

SHUTTING DOWN CARS TO COMPUTERS

AND AIRPLANES TO FRIDREFRIGERATORS.

RUSSIA AND CHINA ALSO POSSESS

EMP TECHNOLOGY.

AMERICA COULD PLUNGE BACK INTO

THE 19TH CENTURY WITH

KATRINA-LIKE CHAOS.

A SINGLE WEAPON WILL

COLLAPSE THE ELECTRIC POWER GRID

AND OTHER ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS

ACROSS THE ENTIRE CONTINENTAL

UNITED STATES AND CAUSE A

PERMANENT BLACK OUT.

IRAN OR TERRORIST PROXY,

HEZBOLLAH PARKING AN UNMARKED

FREIGHTER IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

AND FIRE A NUCLEAR TIPPED SKUD

ABOVE A CITY LIKE NEW YORK AND

SINK THE FREIGHTER TO DESTROY

ERICK STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

OFFICIALS SAY THE U.S. MAY PULL

OFF OF ITS TROOP OUT OF

AFGHANISTAN ON DECEMBER 14TH.

THEY MAY NEED THOUSANDS OF

TROOPS TO DEAL WITH AL-QAEDA AND

STRENGTHEN AMERICAN FORCES.

THEY HAVE 66,000 TROOPS.

BETWEEN 3,000-15,000 MAY STAY.

CHUCK HOLTON SAYS MANY DON'T SEE

A FULL WITHDRAWAL AS A GOOD

IDEA.

GIVING FULL CONTROL OVER TO

IF AFGHANISTAN IS LIKE GIVING

YOUR KEYS OVER TO YOUR SON.

IT WOULD BE A SCARY RIDE.

IF AFGHAN FORCES NEED HEAVY

ARTILLERY, THEY HAVE TO COME TO

US.

PRIMARY CONCERN IS HOW TO

PREVENT AFGHANISTAN OF FALLING

BACK INTO THE CHAOS OF 1990S.

PROVIDING A NETWORK FOR OSAMA

BIN LADEN AND AL-QAEDA.

COMING UP, THE BATTLE TO END

CENSORSHIP IN CHINA.

A FEDERAL JUDGE RULED A TEXAS

SCHOOL DISTRICT CAN KICK OUT ONE

OF ITS STUDENTS AFTER NOT

WEARING AN ID CARD IN SAN

ANTONIO.

THE STUDENTS ARE BEING FORCED TO

WEAR A SMART ID.

15-YEAR-OLD ANDRIA RODRIGUEZ

SAYS IT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST

REFERRED TO IN THE BOOK OF

REVELATION.

THEY REJECTED HER RELIGIOUS

ARGUMENT.

HE THINKS HER REASONS ARE

SECULAR.

HE RULED THE SCHOOL CAN EXPEL

HER.

A BATTLE TO END CENSORSHIP IN

CHINA.

OFFICIALS BELIEVE IN A DEAL.

TWO PROMINENT

AMERICANS.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE DETAILS.

REPORTER: THEY

CARRIED SIGNS

DEMANDING FREEDOM OF PRESS AND

FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ] THIS ACTED

OF SUPPRESSING FREEDOM OF THE

PRESS SHOULD BE CHANGED.

ONE REPORTER SAID IT IS THE

FIRST TIME SINCE 1989 THAT

CHINESE JOURNALIST ARE SAYING

NO.

THIS IS GOING TO BE

DETRIMENTAL OF KNOWING THE

FACTS.

HUNDREDS OF STAFF, READERS

AND ACTIVIST HAVE BEEN

PROTESTING.

CONTROVERSY STARTED NEW YEAR'S

DAY AFTER A WELL KNOWN NEWSPAPER

CALLED FOR FREEDOM AND HUMAN

RIGHTS.

THE EDITORS REPLACED IT.

THE SOUTHERN WEEKLY IS NOT

ALONE.

NEW THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT

PROPAGANDA AUTHORITY HAS MADE A

DEAL.

STAFF AND PROTESTERS ARE WAITING

TO READ THE FINE PRINT OF THE

AGREEMENT.

IF WE ALWAYS HAVE CENSORSHIP

AND MEDIA FACE SHUT DOWN

EVERYDAY, THE MEDIA BECOME THE

TOOL.

IS THERE ANY HOPE FOR THIS

COUNTRY?

CHOO NA IS NOTORIOUS FOR

CENSORING THE PRESS AND

INTERNET.

MORE THAN 350,000 PEOPLE HAVE

ACCESS TO THE INTERNET.

ONLY A PORTION IS AVAILABLE.

IN NEIGHBORING NORTH KOREA, THEY

SPEND THE DAY VISITING A

COMPUTER LAB IN PYONGYANG.

WE HAVE BEEN MEETING WITH A

VARIETY OF OFFICIALS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, HOW SOME ORPHAN AGES

ARE WORKING TO KEEP FAMILIES

TOGETHER.

SADLY AT LEAST TWO MILLION

CHILDREN LIVE IN ORPHAN AGES

AROUND THE WORLD.

IN CAMBODIA AND THAILAND,

THEY HAVE A PARENT THAT COULD

CARE FOR THEM.

ALL THEY NEED IS A LITTLE BIT

OF HELP.

MORE THAN 500 ORPHANAGES DOT

THE PROVINCE, A REGION OF ONE

AND A HALF MILLION PEOPLE.

IT IS A TRAGEDY.

THOUSANDS OF KIDS GROWING UP

WITHOUT A PARENT SEPARATED FROM

THEIR CULTURE.

MANY ORPHANAGES ARE LOVING

PLACES LIKE AGOP PAY HOME.

FOUNDER AVIS WRITEOUT SAYS THE

SITUATION IS FAR FROM IDEAL.

THIS IS A GREAT PLACE.

IT IS A HOME.

IT IS NOT A HOME.

IT IS A FAMILY, BUT IT IS NOT A

FAMILY.

IF I HAD A CHOICE TODAY, I WOULD

NOT BRING IN ANYBODY.

TIM DANIEL MANAGES, ORPHAN'S

PROMISE IN ASIA.

SAYS IT IS HEART BREAKING TO SEE

KIDS THAT HAVE FAMILIES LIVING

IN INSTITUTIONS. IN

ORPHANAGES IN CHINA, MANY

CHILDREN HAVE ONE OR BOTH

PARENTS.

MANY FIND THEM TO BE A BIG

TEMPTATION ESPECIALLY IF THEY

ARE RAISE AGO SISTER'S CHILD.

AN ORPHANAGE WILL CARE FOR THEM

AT NO COST.

IF AN ORPHANAGE PROVIDES FREE

CARE, SHELTER, CLOTHING, FREE

EDUCATION, THAT IS GOING TO HELP

TO ALLEVIATE THE FINANCIAL

PRESSURES ON THE FAMILY.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SAY

ORPHANAGES SHOULD BE A LAST

RESULT FOR THAI FAMILIES.

MANY OPERATIONS TOLERATE ABUSE

ESPECIALLY THOSE NOT REGISTERED

WITH THE GOVERNMENT.

SO THE PLACES THAT DON'T

REGISTER, YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IS

GOING ON THERE.

UNICEF AND USAIZ HAVE

DOCUMENTED WHAT HAPPENS TO KIDS

WHO GROW UP IN INSTITUTION.

FINDING DELAYS IN MENTAL AND

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT, CHILDREN

MORE AT RISK IN HEALTH PROBLEMS

AND ABUSE AND STRUGGLE AS ADULTS

TO ENTER SOCIETY.

KIDS SUFFER WHEN THEY DON'T HAVE

AN ADULT THAT LOVES FOR THEM

PERMANENTLY.

THEY COME AND GO.

THERE ARE THERE BECAUSE THEY ARE

PAID TO BE THERE.

SUCH CONCERNS LED DANIEL AND

OTHERS TO BEGIN ADVOCATING FOR

FAMILY BASED OR COMMUNITY-BASED

CARE.

IN THAILAND, IT LOOKS LIKE THIS.

10-YEAR-OLD FA LIVES WITH

GRANDMA AND GRANDPA.

SHE COULD HAVE ENDED UP IN AN

ORPHANAGE BECAUSE HER FATHER IS

IN PRISON AND MOTHER LEFT THE

FAMILY.

THEY DISCOVERED THE ORPHAN'S

PROMISE PROGRAM CALLED "KEEPING

FAMILIES TOGETHER" OR KFT.

THEY RECEIVED SUPPORT AND

ENCOURAGEMENT THROUGH FAMILY FUN

DAYS AND FINANCIAL HELP WITH A

SIMPLE INVESTMENT.

ORPHAN'S PROMISE BROUGHT THE

FAMILY A BIGGER WALK ALLOWING

THE GRANDMA TO DOUBLE HER

BUSINESS SELLING PORK ON THE

STREETS.

SHE IS PROTECTED FROM MONSOON

RAINS WHILE SHE COOKS.

WE WANT THEM TO BE AN

EXAMPLE.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO KEEP ORPHANS

IN A SAFE, LOVING FAMILY.

PERHAPS THEY NEED A STEP UP AND

SUPPORT.

AT AGOP PAY HOME, AVIS IS

HELPING TO KEEP THEIR CHILDREN.

WE ARE PAYING FOR SCHOOL FEES

AND LUNCHES IF THEY ARE POOR.

ALL HER CHILDREN WOULD PREFER

TO BE WITH FAMILY. IF YOU

ASK EVERY ONE OF MY KIDS WHERE

WOULD THEY RATHER BE IN THE

VILLAGE WITH THE RELATIVES OR A

FOSTER CHILD OR HERE.

THEY WOULD CHOOSE TO BE IN THE

THAI CULTURE.

IT IS LESS COSTLY TO SUPPORT

THESE FAMILIES THAN TO PUT

CHILDREN IN ORPHANAGES.

ADVOCATES OF FAMILY BASED CARE

BELIEVE THESE KIDS WILL GROW UP

MORE SECURE AND A BETTER CHANCE

OF FINDING THEIR WAY IN LIFE AS

ADULTS.

REPORTING IN THAILAND, HEATHER

SELLS CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, FIND OUT WHAT CHAIN

IS OFFERING TO MATCH ANY

DISCOUNT OR ONLINE PRICE.

WE HAVE GOOD NEWS TONIGHT FOR

THOSE OF YOU THAT LIKE TO SHOP.

YEAH, ONE RETAIL STORE IS

OFFERING TO MATCH ANY DISCOUNTED

PRICE.

SHOPPERS WON'T HAVE TO TURN TO

THE INTERNET.

TARGET IS NOW ON TO THOSE

CUSTOMERS WHO WINDOW SHOP AND

FIND A BETTER DEAL AT

AMAZON.COM.

THEY ARE MATCHING PRICES FROM

BEST BUY, TOYS-R-US AND

WAL-MART.COM.

WE LOVE THE COMPETITION.

EVERYTHING YOU SEE HAS TWO

PRICES, ONE LISTED AND THE ONE

THEY'LL MATCH DEPENDING ON THE

ITEM.

SHOPPERS HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO

SAVE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON

THEIR NEXT TRIP.

AMAZON IS PRETTY TRADITIONALLY

LOWER THAN ANYWHERE ELSE.

INTERESTING TO SEE IF PEOPLE

GO ONLINE TO FIND THE LOWER

PRICE.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."
