TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" THE

NRA HEADS TO THE WHITE HOUSE,

LATEST ON THE MEETINGS AIMED AT

CURVING GUN VIOLENCE.

AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR FUTURE

OF ISRAEL.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM WENDY

GRIFFITH.

AND I AM MARK MARTIN.

THE VICE PRESIDENT WILL HAND

PRESIDENT OBAMA A NUMBER OF

SUGGESTIONS TO CURVE GUN

VIOLENCE.

JOE BIDEN CONTINUES TO MEET WITH

DOZENS OF GROUPS HAVING ANYTHING

TO DO WITH THE ISSUE.

TODAY THAT INCLUDED THE NATIONAL

RIFLE ASSOCIATION.

PAUL STRAND HAS TO WANT'S TOP

STORY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE.

BIDEN SAYS HE HAS REACHED NO

CONCLUSIONS BUT HAS A TIGHT

DEADLINE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA.

BIDEN AND ADVISERS ARE CLOSING

IN ON SPECIFICS SUCH AS.

UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS.

NOT JUST CLOSED GUN SHOW

LOOPHOLE, TOTAL UNIVERSAL

INCLUDING PRIVATE SALES.

LAW ENFORCEMENT TYPES AND

POLITICIANS GATHERED IN

MINNEAPOLIS.

I HAVE WONDERED IF ANYTHING

BAD ENOUGH COULD HAPPEN IN THE

UNITED STATES THAT MIGHT CAUSE

PEOPLE TO REEXAM OUR GUN LAWS.

POSSIBLY 20 DEAD BABIES IS IT.

THE NATIONAL RIFLE

ASSOCIATION, HE ADMITTED THERE

WOULD BE PUSH BACK.

STILL.

EVEN IF WHAT WE DO ONLY SAVES

ONE LIFE, IT MAKES SENSE.

I THINK WE CAN DO A GREAT DEAL

WITHOUT IT IMPOSING ON THE

RIGHTS OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT

GUARANTEES.

WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE MAY NOT

BE PREPARED FOR IS HOW

PROTECTIVE AMERICANS ARE OF

THOSE SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

IT MAY FEEL THERE IS NO GOOD

REASON FOR A CITIZEN TO OWN AN

ASSAULT RIFLE TO PROTECT OR HUNT

OR APOCALYPTIC BREAK DOWN IN

CIVILIZATI

CIVILIZATION.

ANY RESTRICTIONS WILL FACE

RESISTANCE.

ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING TOOK

PLACE AT A CALIFORNIA HIGH

SCHOOL, A 16 YEAR OLD IS IN

CRITICAL CONDITION, SHOOTER HAS

SURRENDERED.

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS BUSY

ASSEMBLING HIS CABINET.

HE IS SAID TO BE AN EXPERT ON

FEDERAL BUDGET AND TOUGH

NEGOTIATOR.

SOME REPUBLICANS ACCUSE LOU OF

NOT COMPROMISINCOMPROMISING.

LOU'S NOMINATION IS DRAWING A

DIFFERENT KIND OF CRITICISM, FOR

THE FIRST TIME ALL OF THE TOP

CABINET POSTS WILL BE CARRIED BY

MEN.

A CRITICISM THE WHITE HOUSE

RESPONDED TO.

WOMEN SERVE IN KEY ROLES.

BESIDES LOU, PRESIDENT

NOMINATED CHUCK HAGEL, JOHN

BRENNAN AND JOHN KERRY.

WASHINGTON WILL SOON FACE THE

NEXT DEBT CEILING BATTLE IN A

FEW MONTHS.

DEMOCRATS HAVE COME UP WITH A

PLAN TO BYPASS CONGRESS ON THE

ISSUE INVOLVES USING U.S.

TREASURY TO PRINT A 1 TRILLION

DOLLAR COIN, IT IS A MOVE PHIL

KERPIN CALLS EMBARRASSING.

WE ARE WOULD BE THE LAUGHING

STOCK.

IT IS MORE EMBARRASSING THAN A

GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN FROM NOT

RAISING THE DEBT CEILING.

THE CONFIDENCE OF THE UNITED

STATES WOULD PLUMMET AROUND THE

WORLD AND THE DOLLAR, THE VALUE

WOULD DRAP SIGNIFICA DROP SIGNIFICANTLY.

KERPIN SAYS IT IS LEVERAGE TO

TAKE AWAY FROM REPUBLICAN.

FOR THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW GO TO

CBN.COM.

UNEMPLOYMENT AT RECORD HIGH

IN GREECE UNDER 27%.

19.7% AT THE SAME TIME A YEAR

PRIOR.

GREEK YOUTHS 56% BETWEEN 15-24

OUT OF WORK. TEL AVIV WAS

ROCKED BY A CAR BOMB TODAY.

FOUR PEOPLE INJURED BY THE

EXPLOSION.

CAR WAS POSITIONED NEAR A BUS

AND BOMB WENT OFF CLOSE TO A

SITE NEAR A BUS BOMBING IN NORV.

NOT CLEAR WHO WAS BEHIND THE

ATTACK.

ISRAEL HAS A LONG HISTORY OF BUS

BOMBINGS BY TERRORIST.

A MOTORCYCLIST WAS INVOLVED.

THIS ELECTION COMES AT A

CRUCIAL TIME AND COULD HAVE A

MAJOR IMPACT ON HOW ISRAEL

RESPONDS TO THE CHANGING WORLD

AROUND IT.

CHRIS MITCHELL EXPLAINS.

ISRAELIS LIKE AMERICANS TWO

MONTHS AGO ARE BEING BOMBARDED

BY POLITICAL ADS INCLUDING SOME

MESSAGES WITH AN EDGE FOR THE

YOUNG GENERATION.

IF YOU WANT LIKE THE YOUNGEST

PEOPLE TO VOTE FOR YOU OR TAKE

THE ATTENTION FROM THEM, YOU

NEED TO DO STUFF LIKE THAT.

INSTEAD OF A TWO-PARTY

SYSTEM, MORE THAN -- 120 SEATS

IN ISRAEL'S PARLIAMENT.

WHOEVER WINS THE MOST SEATS MUST

HAMMER TOGETHER A COALITION OF

60 OR MORE PLAYERS.

ISRAELI PARTIES FALL INTO LEFT

OR RIGHT DOMINATING THE RIGHT IS

THE JOINT PARTY OF BENOTMAN ON

THE LEFT OF THE SPECTRUM IS THE

LABOR PARTY.

[APPLAUSE] THE POTENTIAL SPOILER

OF THIS CAMPAIGN IS NATALI

BENNET AND JEWISH PARTY.

THE CURRENT PRIME MINISTER MAY

GIVE UP LAND TO APPEASE U.S. AND

EUROPEAN LEADERS.

HE EXPLAINED TO THE CBN NEWS.

WE ARE A STATE IN THIS VERY

LAND 2,000 YEARS AGO.

NOW WE HAVE IT AGAIN.

THAT IS PROFOUNDLY IMPORTANT

FROM JEWISH AND BIBLICAL

STANDPOINT. NETANYAHU'S

PARTY IN THE LEAD WITH 34 SEATS.

LABOR WITH 21 SEATS AND BENNET'S

JEWISH HOME PARTY AT 15 SEATS.

AS MANY AS 30 PERCENT OF

ISRAELIS ARE STILL UNDECIDED.

ISRAELI VOTER IS THE

EMOTIONAL VOTE.

HE DECIDES X AND THEN HE GOES ON

HIS WAY TO THE ELECTION AND MAY

CHANGE HIS MIND.

THAT IS WHY NETANYAHU COULD

FACE TROUBLE.

I THINK LABOR HAS THE CHANCE

OF SURPRISING IF WE MANAGE TO

GET A BLOCKING BLOCK OF 60 WE

WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE IT FROM

ISRAELI POLITICS.

THE COUNTRY NEEDS TO STAY THE

COURSE.

VERY, VERY POWERFUL

CHALLENGING FUTURE.

IT IS LIKELY NETANYAHU WILL

REMAIN PRIME MINISTER.

WHOEVER LEADS ISRAEL WILL FACE

ECONOMIC CHALLENGES AT HOME,

GROWING DANGER THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST AND OFTEN UNWELCOMED

PRESENCE OF WORLD OPINION.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE GATHER

TODAY OUTSIDE THE PRESIDENTIAL

PALACE IN VENEZUELA.

THEY WERE THERE TO SUPPORT

PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ.

THE LEADER IS RECOVERING FROM

CANCER TREATMENT AND TOO SICK TO

RETURN HOME FOR THE EVENT.

GOVERNMENT ORGANIZED THE

INAUGURATION AND POSTPONED HIS

CEREMONY IN DEFINITELY.

TODAY MARKS A NEW TERM FOLLOWING

RE-ELECTION IN OCTOBER.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL PLACE

HIS HAND NOT ON ONE BIBLE, BUT

TWO, ONE OWNED BY ABRAHAM

LINCOLN AND ONE OWNED BY MARTIN

LUTHER KING JR. THE INAUGURATION

FALLS ON JANUARY 21ST, THE DAY

WE HONOR THE SLAIN CIVIL RIGHTS

LEADER.

MR. OBAMA USED THE LINCOLN BIBLE

FOUR YEARS AGO.

LOUIE GIGLIO HAS PULLED OUT OF

HIS ROLE IN PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

INAUGURATION CEREMONY.

HE WAS ANNOUNCED TO GIVE THE

BENEDICTION.

HE HAS BEEN SINGLED OUT FOR A

SERMON HE GAVE AGAINST

HOMOSEXUALITY.

HE SAID HIS PRAYER WOULD BE

WARPED AND WOULDN'T SERVE HIS

CORE MESSAGE.

HE SAYS MY AIM HAS BEEN TO CALL

PEOPLE TO ULTIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

AS WE MAKE MUCH OF JESUS CHRIST.

OPPONENTS OF GAY MARRIAGE

DISAPPOINTED THE WASHINGTON

NATIONAL CATHEDRAL WILL HOST

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE CEREMONIES.

IT IS HAS BEEN MOVING AWAY FROM

CHRISTIAN ORTHODOXY ON THE

SUBJECT FOR YEARS.

IN WEEK'S ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE

CHURCH SHOWS MARRIAGE IS AN ALL

OR NOTHING DEAL.

AMERICANS MUST ACT IF THEY WANT

TO FUNDAMENTALLY GIVE UP

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

SCHOOL OFFICIALS ARE REFUSING

TO REMOVE A LARGE PORTRAIT OF

JESUS THAT HANGS IN THE SCHOOL.

IT WAS DONATED TO JACKSON MIDDLE

SCHOOL IN 1947.

FREEDOM FROM RELIGION FOUNDATION

DEMANDING THE SCHOOL REMOVE IT.

THEY CALL IT AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL

ENDORSEMENT OF CHRISTIANITY.

300 PEOPLE SHOWED UP TO SUPPORT

THE PAINTING TUESDAY NIGHT.

THE DISTRICT SCHOOL DISTRICT SAY

SUPERINTENDENT SAYS IT WILL

REMAIN.

GOOD FOR HIM OR HER. COMING

UP, HOW CITIES ARE WORKING TO

CONTAIN THE FLU ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

BINGE DRINKING IS A SERIOUS

PROBLEM FOR WOMEN AND GIRLS.

IT OFTEN TIMES GO UNRECOGNIZED

ONE IN EIGHT WOMEN AND ONE IN

FIVE HIGH SCHOOL GIRL BINGE

DRINK CONSUMING FOUR OR MORE

ALCOHOL DRINKS IN ONE SITTING.

CDC WARNS IT PUTS WOMEN AT A

HIGHER RISK FOR BREAST CANCER,

HEART DISEASE, SEXUALLY

TRANSMITTED DISEASE AND IT CAN

LEAD TO FETAL ALCOHOLISM AND

SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME.

THE FLU VIRUS IS THE WORST IN

A DECADE.

EMERGENCY ROOMS FULL.

HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY THERE COULD

BE A SHORTAGE OF VACCINES.

GEORGE THOMAS REPORTS.

ACTIONS OF BOSTON MAYOR

ILLUSTRATES HOW SEVERE THIS FLU

SEASON.

I AM DECLARING A PUBLIC

HEALTH EMERGENCY IN THE CITY OF

BOSTON. 700 CASES OF THE

FLU, 10 TIMES MORE THAN ALL OF

LAST YEAR'S FLU SEASON.

THIS TIME PEOPLE STARTED GETTING

SICK IN OCTOBER INSTEAD OF

JANUARY.

THE FLU STRAND IS H 3N 2 AND

CAUSES FAIRLY SEVERE ILLNESS

AMONG OLDER FOLKS.

I CAN'T SAY IT ENOUGH,

PLEASE, ALL OF EVERYONE, GET TO

THE HEALTH CENTERS THIS WEEKEND,

GET YOUR FLU SHOT.

IN SOME CITIES, 95% OF THE

135 MILLION DOSES OF FLU VACCINE

VACCIN

VACCINES, SOME IN MASSACHUSETTS

JUST RAN OUT.

IT IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

BEFORE OTHER CITIES FOLLOW SUIT.

CHILDREN ARE BEING HIT HARD BY

THE FLU.

AT LEAST 18 HAVE DIED.

PEDIATRICIAN ARE RUNNING LOW ON

FLU MIST.

NASAL VACCINE GIVEN TO CHILDREN

WHO CAN'T TOLERATE THE FLU SHOT.

HOSPITALS ARE OVERRUN BY PEOPLE

WITH SYMPTOMS THAT CAN BE

TREATED AT HOME.

PLEASE, WE IMPLORE YOU TO

STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK.

PATIENTS ARE WAITING UP TO 24

HOURS TO BE ADMITTED.

IN PENNSYLVANIA, ONE HOSPITAL

SET UP A TENT OUTSIDE THE

EMERGENCY ROOM TO DEAL WITH FLU

PATIENTS.

DESPITE THE SHORTAGE, MANY ARE

GIVING THE VACCINATIONS AWAY FOR

FREE TO FIGHT IT.

DOCTORS SAY THE SHOT IS THE BEST

DEFENSE AGAINST THE FLU.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, WE'LL LOOK AT HOW

HIS FAITH IMPACTED THE LIFE OF

PRESIDENT LINCOLN.

THE

LINCOLN NOMINATED FOR 12 ACADEMY

AWARDS TODAY.

THE FILM IS ONE EXAMPLE OF THE

POPULARITY OF THAT BELOVED

PRESIDENT.

NEW ABRAHAM PRESIDED OVER THE

CIVIL WAR AND FREED THE SLAVES.

HE WAS ALSO A MAN THAT STRUGGLED

WITH FAITH.

LEE WEB SPOKE TO HIM ABOUT

HIS NEW BOOK "LINCOLN'S BATTLE

WITH GOD."

PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW ABRAHAM

LINCOLN WAS AN ATHEIST AND

REJECTED THE VERY EXISTENCE OF

GOD.

TELL US ABOUT THAT PHASE?

LINCOLN'S PARENTS WERE CAUGHT

UP WITH THE REVIVALS.

HE DIDN'T HAVE A GREAT

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS FATHER.

HE STARTED TO TURN AWAY FROM

THEIR CHRISTIAN FAITH.

HIS EAGER MIND TURNED HIM TO THE

WRITINGS OF PAIN AND GIBBONS,

THE RATIONALIST.

HE CHALLENGED EVERYBODY'S FAITH.

WROTE SHORT MANUSCRIPTS AGAINST

CHRISTIANITY.

HIS FRIENDS SAID LATER IT WASN'T

THAT HE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN GOD.

HE WAS MAD AT GOD.

HE THOUGHT HIS MOTHER'S

ILLEGITIMACY MADE HIM MARKED OR

REJECTED.

ATHEISM, REACTION TO PARENTS AND

FEELING CURSED BY GOD.

HE HAD A LONG ATHEIST PERIOD.

HOW DO YOU ACCOUNT FOR HIS

CONVERSION?

A SERIES OF DEATHS, LOST

MOTHER, LOST SONS.

HE WAS HAUNTED BY THE RAIN

FALLING ON GRAVES.

EACH TIME THERE WAS A

SIGNIFICANT DEATH, THERE WAS A

MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL THERE TO

SPEAK TO HIM.

HE LOST A CHILD AS HE WAS IN

SPRINGFIELD.

MARY, HIS WIFE COMPLETELY

FLIPPED OUT IN HER GRIEF.

ABRAHAM HAD A GOOD MINISTER,

PULLED IN, A MAN GIFTED IN

APOLOGETIC SO HE COULD ANSWER

LINCOLN'S CONCERNS AND PROBLEMS

AND BEGAN TO COME TO A DEEP AND

GENUINE FAITH.

STEPHEN, DID HE WRESTLE WITH

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH?

HE WRESTLED WITH EVERY

FUNDAMENTAL.

HE WAS A SMART MAN, READ

EXTENSIVELY.

IN HIS AGE IN POLITICS,

PREACHERS MISBEHAVED AND TURNED

HIM OFF.

HE HAD TO PROCESS EVERY

INDIVIDUAL CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE

FOR HIMSELF.

HE CAME TO A BELIEVE AND

SOVEREIGN GOD WHO RULED IN THE

AFFAIRS OF MEN AND THAT IS WHAT

LEADS TO HIS GREAT SPEECHES LIKE

THE SECOND INAUGURAL SPEECH.

HE WAS NOT A MAN THAT COULD

ACCEPT THE TRADITIONAL CREEDS

UNCRITICALLY.

NEW ONE OF THE ANECDOTES ON THE

DAY HE WAS ASSASSINATED, HE

LONGED TO GO TO JERUSALEM TO

WALK IN THE SAVIOR'S STEPS, TELL

US ABOUT THAT?

WHENEVER WE READ ABOUT

LINCOLN'S DEATH AT FORD THEATRE,

THE YOUNG COUPLE WE ARE WITH ARE

GOING TO BE EMBARRASSED BY ME

CLINGING TO YOU SO.

WOW, THEY WILL THINK NOTHING OF

IT.

MARY SAID THEY WERE CONTINUING A

CONTINUE THEY HAD DURING THE

DAY.

THAT WAS ABOUT WHAT THEY WOULD

DO AFTER THE WAR.

LINCOLN SAID I WANT TO GO

ABROAD.

I WANT TO REST.

I WANT TO GO TO JERUSALEM.

HE SAID I WANT TO WALK IN THE

SAVIOR'S FOOTSTEPS.

THOSE MAY HAVE BEEN THE LAST

WORDS ABRAHAM LINCOLN EVER

SPOKE.

JOHN WILKES BOOTH ENTERED HIS

BRAIN AFTER THAT.

LINCOLN WAS ON A JOURNEY, WENT

FROM VILLAGE ATHEIST TO HIS LAST

WORDS BEING "I WANT TO WALK IN

THE SAVIOR'S FOOTSTEPS."

YOUR BOOK IS TIMELY, WE ARE

ABOUT TO SEE THE RELEASE OF

ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

WHAT WAS YOUR IMPRESSION?

YES.

I GOT TO SNEAK OUT TO L.A. IT IS

A POWERFUL, POWERFUL FILM.

IT IS A GIFT TO OUR NATION IN

OUR HISTORY.

IT HAS A FEW SMALL FLAWS.

DOESN'T DO JUSTICE TO THE ISSUE

OF FAITH WHICH IS WHY I AM GLAD

MY BOOK IS ON THE MARKET.

WHAT AN ATTEMPT TO HONOR OUR

HISTORY.

DANIEL DAY LOUIS AS LINCOLN, HE

IS A REVELATION.

HE BECOMES LINCOLN.

HIM SITTING STILL IS A MORE

POWERFUL DISTINCTION THAN

ANYTHING YOU READ.

IT IS GOING TO IMPACT OUR

COUNTRY. IN STEPHEN

MANSFIE

MANSFIELD, IT IS A PRIVILEGE AND

PLEASURE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT

THE BOOKS YOU HAVE WRITTEN ON

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US TO TALK

ABOUT ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

LEE, ALWAYS GOOD TO BE HERE

WITH YOU. UP NEXT, BIGGEST

SNOWSTORM SO HIT ISRAEL IN

DECADES.

THE BIGGEST STORM TO HIT THE

MIDDLE EAST IN DECADES DUMPED AT

LEAST SIX INCHES OF SNOW ON

JERUSALEM TODAY.

WE SENT CBN CORRESPONDENT

JULIE STALL INTO THE SNOW FOR

THE REPORT.

JERUSALEM IETS WOKE UP TO

SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW,

WONDERLAND WHITE OVER THE CITY,

NEW CITY.

THE SNOW HAS CONTINUED TO FALL

ON AND OFF THROUGH AT LEAST HALF

THE DAY.

MIGHT NOT SEEM LIKE SNOW IS A

BIG DAY.

JERUSALEM ONLY GETS SNOW EVERY

THREE OR FOUR YEARS.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST SNOW IN 20

YEARS.

PEOPLE ARE OF COURSE BUILDING

SNOWMEN AND SNOWBALL FIGHTS.

THAT IS A UNIVERSAL THING.

IN THE BOOK OF JOB, HE HAS

RESERVED THE TREASURIES OF SNOW

AGAINST THE DAY OF BATTLE.

IN HISTORY, ISRAEL HAS HAD A WET

WINTER AFTER A WAR.

ISRAEL HAD A WAR IN NOVEMBER AND

HEADING FOR A VERY, VERY WET

WINTER.

ISRAEL HAS TWO MONTHS MORE OF

PRECIPITATION.

THEY ARE ENJOYING THE SNOW

TODAY.

THIS IS JULIE STALL FOR CBN NEWS

FROM A VERY COLD AND SNOWY

JERUSALEM.

ISN'T THAT COOL HOW THE BIBLE

TALKS ABOUT THE SNOW COMING

AFTER THE BATTLE AND THERE WAS A

BATTLE AROUND THANKSGIVING.

GORGEOUS.

OUR BOSS IS OVER THERE RIGHT

NOW.

I KNOW.

HE IS SEEING JERUSALEM UNDER

A BLANKET OF SNOW.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR WATCHING, HAVE A

GREAT NIGHT.
