I JUST WANTED TO DIE.

Lee: DRUGGED...

I REMEMBER FEELING REALLY

WEIRD.

LIKE THE ROOM WAS SPINNING.

Lee: AND BLACKMAIL.

YOU HAVE TO DO THIS FOR

AS LONG AS WE SAY, OR ELSE

WE'LL KILL YOUR FAMILY.

Lee: ONE GIRL IS FORCED

TO BECOME A SEX SLAVE.

AND I WAS DOWN THERE,

BEING TORTURED.

Lee: ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

*

[APPLAUSE]

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

WE'VE GOT A SHOCKING STORY

FOR YOU TODAY.

SHE WENT THROUGH IT, A SEX

SLAVE, TWO YEARS IN

BONDAGE.

YOU WON'T BELIEVE WHAT

HAPPENED TO HER.

AND, WELL, SHE'LL BE HERE TO

TELL US THE STORY.

IN ADDITION, YOU WON'T

BELIEVE WHAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN TO YOU WHEN THIS

OBAMACARE TAKES HOLD.

AND WE'VE GOT AN EXPERT ON

THAT.

FIRST OF ALL, YOU DIDN'T

HEAR THIS DURING ALL THE

GLOW OF THE POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN, WHICH RE-ELECTED

OUR PRESIDENT.

BUT GUESS WHAT?

IN THE LAST QUARTER OF LAST

YEAR, THE ECONOMY SLOWED

DOWN DRAMATICALLY.

BUT IT DIDN'T SEEM TO HURT

THE STOCK MARKET.

THE DOW JONES HAS BEEN GOING

UP NOW FOR MONTHS.

Kristi: PAT, NOW STOCKS

ARE NEAR RECORD HIGHS, AND

THE HOUSING MARKET IS

GETTING STRONGER, TOO.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM TELLS US WHAT

IS HAPPENING ON WALL STREET

AND MAIN STREET.

Reporter: THE NATION'S

ECONOMIC GROWTH RATE MAY BE

SLOW, BUT THE U.S. HOUSING

AND STOCK MARKETS ARE

SOARING.

THE DOW CLOSED AT ITS

HIGHEST LEVEL IN TWO YEARS,

NEARLY HITTING THE 14,000

MARK, AND ONLY 200 POINTS

AWAY FROM ITS ALL-TIME

HIGH.

THAT IS GOOD NEWS FOR

AMERICAN INVESTORS.

THE AVERAGE 401K RETIREMENT

ACCOUNT IS UP ABOUT 20% OVER

LAST YEAR.

IN THE WORST-CASE

SCENARIOS, THAT PEOPLE WERE

LOOKING AT IN 2008, THEY CAN

START TO SAY, ALL RIGHT,

WE'RE NOT GOING TO GO

THERE.

Reporter: THE HOUSING

MARKET IS ALSO PUSHING

FORWARD.

HOME PRICES ROSE 5.5% IN

NOVEMBER, COMPARED TO A

YEARS AGO.

THIS IS A MIRACLE IN

MOTION.

WE HAVEN'T SEEN THIS IN

PROBABLY SEVEN YEARS.

Reporter: HOUSING

PRICES HAVE GONE UP 10

MONTHS IN A ROW.

EXPERTS CREDIT THE PROGRESS

TO HISTORICALLY LOW INTEREST

RATES.

MORTGAGE RATES ARE SO

LOW.

Reporter: BUT WHILE THE

ECONOMY CONTINUES IT'S SLOW

RECOVERY, BOTH THE FED AND

THE ECONOMISTS WARN: WHAT

HAPPENS IN CONGRESS OVER THE

NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS COULD

DRAMATICALLY CHANGE THINGS.

AND IT COULD THROW THE

ECONOMY BACK INTO A

RECESSION.

CONSUMER CONFIDENCE JUST

DROPPED 8.1 POINTS.

THE REASON, WHEN LAWMAKERS

REACHED A DEAL TO AVOID TAX

INCREASES FOR MOST

AMERICANS, THEY DID NOT

EXTEND THE CUT ON SOCIAL

SECURITY TAXES.

THAT MEANS AMERICANS ARE

BRINGING HOME LESS MONEY IN

THEIR PAYCHECK.

BUT FOR NOW, BOTH SMALL AND

LARGE INVESTORS ARE

CELEBRATING THE GOOD NEWS ON

WALL STREET.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, EPHRAIM,

I'LL TELL YOU SOMETHING:

10,000 AMERICANS REACH

RETIREMENT AGE EVERY SINGLE

DAY.

THE BABY-BOOMERS ARE GETTING

OLDER.

AND WHEN THEY HIT THE 65

MARK, THEY BEGIN TO RETIRE

AND THEY START DRAWING

SOCIAL SECURITY AND OTHER

PENSIONS.

THAT DRAWDOWN IS GOING TO BE

ENORMOUS IN THE NEXT FEW

YEARS.

AND WHILE THINGS MAY LOOK

OKAY FOR STOCKS AND THE

ECONOMY RIGHT NOW,

WASHINGTON STILL FACES A

SERIOUS LONG-TERM PROBLEM ON

THE HORIZON.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

LEE?

Lee: PAT, THE NATIONAL

DEBT IS HEADED TOWARDS

DANGEROUSLY HIGH LEVELS THAT

COULD THREATEN THE U.S.

ECONOMY.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO A REPORT

FROM A BUDGET WATCHDOG

GROUP, THE PETER G.PETERSON

FOUNDATION.

THAT STUDY SAYS THE DEBT

COULD REACH 200% OF THE

ECONOMY.

THAT MUCH DEBT IS HARD TO

PAY BACK WITHOUT HEAVY TAXES

OR INFLATION, AND THAT COULD

LEAD TO ANOTHER MAJOR

FINANCIAL CRISIS, LIKE THE

ONE WE HAD IN 2008.

SUPREME COURT JUST ANTHONY

SCALICE SAYS IT IS A MISTAKE

TO CONSIDER THE CONSTITUTION

A LIVING DOCUMENT.

HE SAYS THE CONSTITUTION IS,

QUOTE,"DEAD, DEAD, DEAD."

AND HE SAYS THOSE THAT

BELIEVE THE CONSTITUTION IS

A LIVING DOCUMENT, MEANS IT

IS FLEXIBLE AND CHANGES WITH

THE TIME.

THE DALLAS REPORT SAYS

SCALLIA

TOLD THE STUDENTS AT

S.M.U., THAT

IDEA IS WRONG.

HE SAYS THE JUDGE

HAS TO

FOLLOW

THE CONSTITUTION, NOT

HIS

OWN BELIEFS.

A DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON

TELLS CBN NEWS THEY'RE

DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED WITH

PASTOR ABEDINI'S EIGHT YEAR

SENTENCE.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT

SAYS, "WITH CONDEMN PRISON

SENTENCE, AND WE CALL ON

THEM TO RELEASE HIM."

Pat: THE IDEA OF

GETTING A FAIR TRIAL IN IRAN

IS A JOKE.

THEY DO WHAT THE MULLAHS

TELL THEM TO DO, AND THE

MULLAHS WANTED TO THROW THE

BOOK AT THIS POOR GUY.

THEY PUT HIM IN ONE OF THOSE

OUTRAGEOUS PRISONS.

THE CHANCES OF HIM COMING

OUT ALIVE IS VERY SLIM.

WE MIGHT POINT OUT THAT

EGYPT IS ON THE VERGE OF

COLLAPSE.

THAT WAS THE HEADLINE IN

TODAY'S PAPER.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD HAS

SHOWN THEIR HAND.

AND THEY HAVE GOTTEN --

WELL, THEY HAVE TAKEN THE

EXTREME POSITION THAT THOSE

ISLAMISTS TAKE, AND WHO

KNOWS WHAT IS HAPPENING TO

THE RULE OF LAW, BUT IN ANY

EVENT, HERE IS THE STORY.

Lee: A HIGH-RANKING

AGENT TO MOHAMMED MORSI SAYS

THE HOLOCAUST NEVER

HAPPENED.

HE SAYS HITLER'S MURDER OF

SIX MILLION JEWS WAS A

FABRICATION.

FAT-ISH ELIM CALLS THE

HOLOCAUST A MYTH AND AN

INDUSTRY THAT AMERICA

MADEED. MADE UP.

PAT?

Pat: IT IS THIS KIND

OF, WELL, BLINDNESS, I

GUESS, MYOPIA, WHATEVER TERM

YOU WANT TO GIVE IT, THAT

SEEMS TO CENTER ON THE

ISLAMIC PEOPLE.

THEY JUST BELIEVE LIES AND

THEY LIVE LIES AND THEY TELL

LIES.

AND IT IS JUST EXTRAORDINARY

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN EGYPT.

AND GUESS WHAT?

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS

GOING FORWARD TO SELL HIGH,

SOPHISTICATED,

HIGH-PERFORMANCE, F-16 JET

AIRPLANES TO EGYPT.

WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO USE

THEM FOR?

THEY ONLY HAVE ONE POTENTIAL

TARGET.

THERE IS NOBODY ELSE.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO BOMB

SUDAN.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO FIGHT

SYRIA.

WHO ARE THEY GOING AFTER?

WELL, THEY'RE GOING AFTER

ISRAEL.

AND THAT'S WHAT THESE PLANES

WILL DO.

AND WHY WE WENT FORWARD IN

LIGHT OF WHAT IS HAPPENING

IN EGYPT, I DON'T KNOW.

BUT, IN ANY EVENT, THAT

COUNTRY IS CHAOS.

THE BIGGEST THING IS THEY

WANT TO IMPOSE SHARI'A LAW

ON THE PEOPLE.

AND THOSE WHO ARE

INDEPENDENT, THOSE WHO ARE

COPTIC CHRISTIANS, AND THOSE

WHO ARE OTHER RELIGIONS

DON'T WANT IT.

THAT WHOLE COUNTRY IS IN

DANGER OF BREAKING APART,

AND THE ARMY MAY HAVE TO

MOVE IN

TO RESTORE ORDER.

Lee: HERE AT

HOME, PAT,

A STORM SYSTEM YOU

WOULD

TYPICALLY SEE IN THE SPRING

RIPPED THROUGH THE NATION'S

MID SECTION.

LIGHTNING STRUCK AND INJURED

ONE PERSON IN ARKANSAS.

THERE ARE DOWNED TREES AND

EVEN REPORTS OF TORNADOS IN

THAT STATE.

AT LEAST 9,000 HOMES AND

BUSINESSES LOST

ELECTRICITY.

I WAS LEAVING FOR SCHOOL,

AND I GOT A PHONE CALL FROM

THE BUS DRIVER, AND SAID,

HEY, YOU HAVE ELECTRIC POLES

AND TREES DOWN IN YOUR

YARD.

AND I GOT HOME, AND EVEN

PART OF THE ROOF WAS DOWN.

Lee: WOW!

CHICAGO RESIDENTS HAVE BEEN

WHIP LASHED BY WEATHER

EXTREMES.

THERE WERE SUBZERO

TEMPERATURES AND BRUTAL

WINDCHILLS A WEEK AGO, BUT

TEMPERATURES SOARED TO THE

MID-60s ON TUESDAY.

A MEDICAL MIRACLE FOR AN

IRAQI WAR VETERAN.

THE ONLY SHOULDER WHO LOST

BOTH ARMS AND BOTH LEGS.

DOCTORS PERFORMED A DOUBLE

ARM TRANSPLANT ON

26-YEAR-OLD BRENDAN.

THEY CONNECTED BONE,

MUSCLES, NERVES, AND SKIN,

AND IT IS FASCINATING TO

HEAR HOW THE SURGEONS

PREPARED FOR THIS

COMPLICATED OPERATION.

THE SURGICAL TEAM

REHEARSED THE PROCEDURE ON

CADAVER ARMS FOUR TIMES, AND

THE ACTUAL PLAN WAS EXECUTED

ACCORDING TO OUR DESIGN.

I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT

TO SAY BECAUSE IT IS REALLY

SUCH A BIG THING FOR MY

LIFE.

IT IS JUST FANTASTIC.

Lee: AND HE LOOKS

GREAT, TOO.

DOCTORS SAY THE NERVES IN

BRENDAN'S ARMS WILL

REGENERATE ONE INCH PER

MONTH.

HE SHOULD HAVE FULL USE OF

THEM EVENTUALLY.

AND HE SAYS HE LOOKS FORWARD

TO DRIVING BEGAN AND PLANS

TO HAND CYCLE A MARATHON.

Pat: ONE OF THE GREAT

DOCTORS IN AMERICA IS BEN

CARSON, THE ONE WHO

SEPARATED CONJOINED TWINS.

NOBODY HAD EVER DONE THAT

BEFORE.

AND HE SERVED AS A MEMBER OF

THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF

REGENT UNIVERSITY.

I BELIEVE HE IS GOING INTO

INACTIVE STATUS.

SHE HAS BEEN HEAD OF

PEDIATRIC NEUROSURGERY AT

JOHNS HOPKINS.

THIS WAS DONE AT JOHNS

HOPKINS, AND IT IS ONE MORE

KUDO FOR THE EXCELLENT

PHYSICIANS AT THAT

HOSPITAL.

KRISTI, YOU WERE A STELLER

STAR ON THE TELEPHONE.

Kristi: PRAISE GOD.

WE'LL GIVE HIM ALL OF THE

CREDIT.

Pat: YOU LOOK HEALTHY

AND LOVELY.

Kristi: I FEEL REALLY,

REALLY GOOD.

IT IS AMAZING WHAT REST

DOES.

WE HAVE AN AMAZING SHOW.

PAT TALKED ABOUT IT A LITTLE

AT THE TOP OF THE SHOW.

CHECK THIS OUT.

COMING UP, YOU'RE GOING TO

HEAR HOW AN ALL-AMERICAN

GIRL WOUND UP BECOMING A SEX

SLAVE.

FIRST, IT HAS BEEN ALMOST

THREE YEARS SINCE OBAMACARE

PASSED, AND WE'RE STILL NOT

SURE WHAT IS IN THE BILL.

ONE AUTHOR TELLS US JUST

WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED.

UP NEXT.

*

Pat: IT WAS A

NIGHTMARE.

IT WAS A LEGISLATIVE

NIGHTMARE, AND THE AMAZING

STATEMENT, AND I WILL REFER

TO IT A NUMBER OF TIMES, THE

TEN DEMOCRATIC SPEAKER OF

THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

OF THE UNITED STATES SAID WE

MUST PASS THIS BILL SO WE

CAN SEE WHAT'S IN IT.

THEY DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE.

AND IT'S DOUBTFUL THAT ANY

CONGRESSMAN READ THE WHOLE

THING THROUGH.

NOW THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS

BEEN ELECTED, THE NEW HEALTH

CARE PLAN IS THE LAW OF THE

LAND.

AND IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY

THAT IT WILL BE REMOVED.

BUT IT MAY MEAN SOME

IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR EVERY

AMERICAN'S HEALTH CARE.

AND MOST PEOPLE STILL DON'T

LIKE THE NEW LAW.

BUT ONE WOMAN SAYS THERE ARE

SEPSTEPS YOU CAN TAKE TO

SURVIVE AND BEAT OBAMACARE.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: YOU MAY NOT

KNOW HER NAME, BUT YOU MAY

RECOGNIZE BETSY AS THE WOMAN

WHO SHOWS UP AT TELEVISION

INTERVIEWS, LUGGING THE

ENTIRE 2,572 PAGE HEALTH

CARE LAW WITH HER.

SHE IS A LAWYER AND HEALTH

CARE POLICY EXPERT, WHO HAS

POURED OVER EVERY DETAIL OF

THE LAW, AND HAS BEEN

SOUNDING THE LAW ABOUT ITS

SHOCKING REALITIES.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU

PRESENTLY GET HEALTH

INSURANCE THROUGH YOUR JOB,

YOU MAY LOSE IT AS OF

JANUARY 1, 2013.

IF YOU'RE A SENIOR OR A

BABY-BOOMER, YOU CAN EXPECT

LESS CARE THAN IN THE PAST.

AND AS OF 2014, YOU HAVE TO

SHOW PROOF ON YOUR TAX

RETURN THAT YOU'RE INVOLVED

IN A GOVERNMENT APPROVED

HEALTH CARE PLAN OR PAY A

HEFTY PENT.

PENALTY.

HER NEW BOOK, "BEATING

OBAMACARE, YOUR HANDBOOK FOR

SURVIVING THE NEW HEALTH

CARE LAW," BRINGS IT DOWN TO

ITS ESSENTIAL FACTS, TO GIVE

YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO PREPARE

FOR THE COMING STORM.

Pat: BETSY McCOY, SHE

IS WITH US.

IT IS AN INTRIGUING

BOOK, "BEATING OBAMACARE."

BETSY, HOW DID YOU SURVIVE

READING THIS THING?

WELL, HERE IT IS.

THE ENTIRE OBAMA HEALTH LAW,

AND, ACTUALLY, I READ IT SO

YOU DON'T HAVE TO.

BUT EVERYBODY DOES NEED TO

KNOW WHAT'S IN THIS LAW

BECAUSE SO MANY AMERICANS

ARE ALREADY GETTING

CLOBBERED WITH THE EFFECTS

OF THIS LAW.

FOR EXAMPLE, MOST AMERICANS

GET THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE

AT WORK, EITHER THROUGH

THEIR OWN JOB OR THEIR

SPOUSE% JOB.

IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, MANY

AMERICANS ARE GOING TO HEAR

THEIR EMPLOYER IS DROPPING

COVERAGE.

Pat: WHY ARE THEY GOING

TO DROP COVERAGE?

BECAUSE THE LAW SAYS

BEGINNING IN 2014, EMPLOYERS

WITH 50 OR MORE FULL-TIME

WORKERS HAVE TO PROVIDE

COVERAGE.

THEY HAVE TO PROVIDE THIS

ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL GOVERNMENT

MANDATED PACKAGE OF

ESSENTIAL BENEFITS.

IT WILL COST ABOUT TWICE AS

MUCH OF WHAT MANY EMPLOYERS

ARE CURRENTLY PAYING.

MANY ARE SAYING, I CAN'T

AFFORD THAT, I'M GOING TO

STOP COVERAGE ENTIRELY AND

PAY THE PENALTY.

AND SOME EMPLOYERS ARE

PUSHING DOWN THEIR FULL-TIME

WORKERS TO PART-TIME STATUS,

MEANING LESS THAN 30 HOURS A

WEEK, TO AVOID THE LAW

ENTIRELY.

THAT'S ONE OF THE PIECES OF

BAD NEWS.

THIS BENEFIT PACKAGE ADDS A

WHOPPING $1.79 AN HOUR TO

THE COST OF HIRING A WORKER,

LIKE A WAITRESS OR AN

ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT.

IT JUST MAKES IT TOO

COSTLY.

Pat: BETSY, THE

POLITICAL CLASS DURING THIS

ELECTION KEPT TALKING ABOUT

WE'RE GOING TO CREATE JOBS.

WE NEED JOBS, JOBS, JOBS.

YOU HEARD IT ALL THE TIME.

THIS IS A JOB KILLER OF THE

FIRST ORDER.

WHY DON'T THE DEMOCRATS

RECOGNIZE THAT?

WELL, AND WHAT IS

SHOCKING IS THAT THE

GOVERNMENT'S OWN ECONOMISTS

PROJECTED BEFORE THIS BILL

WAS PASSED INTO LAW, THAT

FEWER PEOPLE WOULD GET

HEALTH COVERAGE ON THE JOB

AFTER THIS LAW WAS PASSED

THAN IF IT WEREN'T PASSED AT

ALL.

THEY KNEW PEOPLE WERE GOING

TO LOSE THEIR ON THE JOB

COVERAGE, AND EVERYBODY

NEEDS TO BE PREPARED FOR

THAT.

ACTUALLY, THE BIGGEST IMPACT

OF ALL IS ON SENIORS.

BECAUSE CUTS TO THIS LAW,

CUTS TO MEDICARE UNDER THIS

LAW PAY FOR OVER HALF THIS

LAW.

IMAGINE THAT, CUTS TO

MEDICARE PAY FOR OVER HALF

THIS LAW.

Pat: HOW CAN THE

PRESIDENT GET ON TELEVISION

AND SAY I'M CONCERNED ABOUT

THE SENIORS, AND THESE

REPUBLICANS DON'T -- IT IS A

PACK OF LIES.

YOU USED THE RIGHT WORD,

IT'S LIES.

HERE IS WHAT SENIORS NEED TO

EXPECT.

AND THIS IS STRAIGHT FROM

THE CHIEF AC WARE OF

MEDICARE, RICHARD FOSTER, HE

HAS TOLD CONGRESS TWICE THAT

SENIORS WILL GET MUCH LESS

CARE IN THE FUTURE THAN

THEY'RE CURRENTLY GETTING.

ABOUT $1,431 LESS CARE PER

YEAR THAN THEY CURRENTLY

RECEIVE.

NOW THAT MEANS A BIG

DIFFERENCE TO MANY SENIORS.

AND THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE

IS GOING TO BE HOSPITAL

CARE.

HOSPITALS -- SOME WILL STOP

TAKING MEDICARE, ACCORDING

TO FOSTER, AND THE HOSPITALS

THAT CONTINUE TO TAKE

MEDICARE WILL HAVE TO SPREAD

NURSES THINNER.

THAT WILL MEAN WHEN YOU PUSH

THAT BUTTON FOR HELP, YOU'RE

GOING TO WAIT LONGER.

WE HAVE A LOT OF EVIDENCE

THAT WHEN HOSPITALS SPREAD

NURSES THINNER AND INCREASE

THE WORKLOAD ON NURSES,

PATIENTS HAVE A HARDER TIME

SURVIVING THEIR ILLNESS.

Pat: WHAT IS THIS

BUSINESS IN 2014, I GUESS,

THAT IF YOU -- YOU HAVE TO

SHOW THE I.R.S. YOU HAVE A

GOVERNMENT-APPROVED PLAN.

IF YOU DON'T, YOU PAY A

FINE.

TELL US ABOUT THAT?

THAT'S RIGHT.

WHEN YOU FILE YOUR TAXES,

YOU WILL HAVE TO ATTACH

PROOF THAT YOU ARE ENROLLED

IN THE GOVERNMENT-APPROVED

PLAN.

IF YOU DON'T, YOU MAY NOT

GET YOUR REFUND.

THAT'S HOW THEY WITHHOLD THE

PENALTY.

THEY JUST DON'T SEND YOU

PART OR ALL OF YOUR REFUND.

I THINK THE TWO MOST

SHOCKING PROVISIONS IN THIS

LAW, ONE IS SECTION 3,000

"A," THAT ACTUALLY AWARDS

BONUS POINTS TO HOSPITALS

THAT SPEND THE LEAST PER

SENIOR.

THEY REWARD THE HOSPITALS

THAT SPEND THE LEAST PER

SENIOR.

WE HAVE SO MUCH EVIDENCE

THAT THE HOSPITALS THAT

SPEND THE LEAST FOR SENIORS

HAVE SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER

DEATH RATES FROM PNEUMONIA,

HEART ATTACKS AND OTHER

ILLNESSES COMMON AMONG THE

ELDERLY.

THOSE PATIENTS IN THOSE

HOSPITALS JUST DON'T HAVE A

GOOD CHANCE OF MAKING IT

HOME AGAIN.

Pat: THIS IS A

HEARTLESS MON TRO MONTROSITY.

IT IS A NIGHTMARE.

IT IS A NIGHTMARE.

THEY SOLD IT AS HELPING THE

UNINSURED, SOMETHING I VERY

MUCH WANT TO DO, BUT, IN

FACT, THIS TAKES A LOT OF

HEALTH CARE AWAY FROM PEOPLE

WHO CURRENTLY HAVE

INSURANCE.

AND THE OTHER SHOCKER IS

SECTION 1311, WHICH PUTS THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN CHARGE

OF YOUR CARE.

EVEN IF YOUR A PRIVATE

HEALTH CARE THAT YOU PAID

FOR YOURSELF WITH NO SUBSIDY

AT ALL.

IT SAYS THAT THE DOCTORS

MUST OBEY WHATEVER

REGULATIONS THE HEALTH

MINISTER IMPOSES.

THAT MEANS WHEN YOUR O.B.

Y.N. DOES A CESAREAN, AND

WHAT KINDS OF QUESTIONS YOUR

DOCTORS MUST ASK YOU AND

MUST INCLUDE IN THAT

ELECTRONIC MEDICAL RECORD.

Pat: I'M SPEECHLESS.

SO SAY GOOD-BYE TO HEALTH

CARE PRIVACY.

IT'S OVER.

Pat: I'M SPEECHLESS,

ABSOLUTELY SPEECHLESS, THAT

THEY WOULD DO THIS AND IT

WOULD GO THROUGH.

AND THE PEOPLE WOULD VOTE

FOR IT.

IT DID PASS THE CONGRESS.

YOUR BOOK IS CALLED "BEATING

OBAMA CARE."

GIVE US A CLUE, HOW DO YOU

BEAT IT, YOUR CHANCE OF

SURVIVING.

LET ME GIVE YOU SOME VERY

SPECIFIC EXAMPLES.

IF YOU'RE A BABY-BOOMER IN

YOUR LATE 50s OR EARLY

60s, LINE UP YOUR

RELATIONSHIPS WITH DOCTORS

NOW, A PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR,

AN INTERNIST, A

CARDIOLOGIST, AND SOLIDIFY

THOSE.

BECAUSE IF YOU WAIT UNTIL

YOUR 65 AND ON MEDICARE, YOU

WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIND A

DOCTOR WILLING TO TREAT

YOU.

Pat: BETSY, YOU HAVE

DONE A LANDMARK JOB.

I DON'T THINK ANYBODY HAS

DONE THE WORK YOU'VE DONE.

CONGRATULATIONS.

THANK YOU.

Pat: YOU'RE BOOK IS

AVAILABLE --

amazon.com, BARNS AND

BARNES AND NOBEL, AND IT IS

CALLED "BEATING OBAMACARE."

Pat: HOW DO YOU GET

McCOY OUT OF McCOYIE.

IT'S A REAL SCOTTISH

NAME.

Pat: KRISTI?

Kristi: FOR YEARS,

TERESA FLORENCE WAS CAUGHT

UP IN A SEX TRAFFICKING

RING.

AND IF SHE TRIED TO ESCAPE,

HER FAMILY WOULD BE KILLED.

I KNEW IF I TALKED, IF I

TOLD THEM WHO DID IT, I

WOULD BE DEAD.

Kristi: YOU'LL FIND OUT

HOW SHE GOT OUT OF THE LIFE

AND HOW SHE IS HELPING

OTHERS DO THE SAME.

UP NEXT.

Pat: WE LIVE IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

IN OUR COUNTRY, 300,000

YOUNG GIRLS ARE IN SO-CALLED

SEX TRAFFIC,SEX SLAVES.

THEY SAY WITH THE SUPER BOWL

COMING UP, THAT IS THE

GATHERING PLACE WHERE THE

PIMPS BRING ALL OF THEIR

YOUNG GIRLS, AND THEY PUT

THEM UP IN HOTELS AND

MOTELS, AND THEY'LL BE IN

NEW ORLEANS, THICK AS FLIES,

AND THE POLICE WILL IGNORE

IT.

AND IT'S GOING TO BE

HORRIBLE.

I READ THIS BOOK, IT'S

CALLED "THE SLAVE ACROSS THE

STREET."

AND IT'S QUITE A BOOK.

WELL, TERESA FLORENCE KNOWS

ALL TOO WELL ABOUT THE

EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN

BECAUSE FOR TWO YEARS SHE

WAS A SEX SLAVE HERSELF.

WHEN WE THINK OF

TRAFFICKING, WE THINK OF

MOVEMENT, YOU KNOW, BACK AND

FORTH.

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE

MOVEMENT.

YOU CAN HAVE A GIRL IN THE

HOME AND BRING MEN TO HER

ALL NIGHT LONG, AND THAT'S

TRAFFICLY.

Reporter: TERESA

FLORENCE KNOWS BECAUSE SHE

WAS A VICTIM.

THEY HAD THE WHOLE

BUSINESS SET UP.

THEY WERE -- I MEAN, I WAS

A, YOU KNOW, PRETTY,

STRAWBERRY BLONDE, WHITE

GIRL.

AND THEY WERE CHARGING QUITE

A LOT OF MONEY, I BELIEVE.

Reporter: IT ALL

STARTED AFTER SCHOOL ONE

DAY, WITH A BOY SHE HAD A

CRUSH ON.

HE WAS, LIKE, TERESA, DO

YOU WANT TO RIDE HOME FROM

SCHOOL?

I'M THINKING, I'M SUPPOSED

TO BE IN TRACK PRACTICE, BUT

HE IS SITTING THERE OFFERING

ME A RIDE HOME FROM SCHOOL.

SO I WAS, LIKE, OKAY.

SO WE GET IN THE CAR, AND HE

TURNS THE WRONG WAY.

I LIVE TO THE LEFT, AND HE

PULLED OUT TO THE RIGHT.

AND I WAS, LIKE, WAIT.

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

SO WE PULL UP TO HIS HOUSE.

AND THERE WAS NO CARS IN THE

DRIVEWAY, WHICH I THOUGHT

WAS REALLY WEIRD BECAUSE

MOST PEOPLE WERE

STAY-AT-HOME MOMS.

HE SAID, I NEED TO JUST GRAB

SOMETHING.

DO YOU WANT TO COME INSIDE?

I SAID NO, I'M NOT

ALLOWED TO.

I'VE GOT TO GET HOME TO MY

MOM.

AND HE JUST TURNED TO ME AND

SAID, I LIKE YOU.

Reporter: TERESA WAS

ONLY 15 YEARS OLD.

HER FAMILY MOVED ALMOST

EVERY TWO YEARS BECAUSE OF

HER FATHER'S JOB, AND SHE

DESPERATELY WANTED TO BE

ACCEPTED IN HER NEW

COMMUNITY OUTSIDE OF

DETROIT.

SO HE IGNORED THE RED FLAGS

AND WENT INSIDE.

HE OFFERED ME A POP, SO I

TOOK IT AND DRANK IT.

I REMEMBER FEELING REALLY

WEIRD.

LIKE JUST REALLY DIZZY, LIKE

THE ROOM WAS SPINNING.

HE DRUGGED ME AND THEN HE

RAPED ME.

Reporter: THE NEXT DAY

THE BOY TOLD HER THAT HIS

COUSINS HAD BEEN THERE AND

HAD SECRETLY TAKEN

PICTURES.

AND THE PICTURES DIDN'T MAKE

IT LOOK LIKE RAPE AT ALL.

TERESA HAD BEEN SET UP FOR

SEXUAL BLACKMAIL.

I REMEMBER GETTING THE

PHONE CALL, AND IT WAS --

BECAUSE I HAD A PRIVATE

PHONE, AND I ANSWERED, AND

IT WAS HIM.

AND THEY SAID, THEY WANT TO

SEE YOU NOW.

AND I JUST SAID, YOU'RE

CRAZY.

YOU'RE CRAZY.

MY MOM AND DAD ARE HERE.

AND I CAN'T GO AT MIDNIGHT.

AND HE WAS, LIKE, TERESA,

YOU NEED TO TAKE THIS

SERIOUSLY.

AND STUPIDLY I WENT.

THEY HAD THOSE PICTURES.

I MEAN, I WAS 15, AND IN MY

MIND, MY REPUTATION WOULD

HAVE BEEN DEVASTATED,

TOTALLY GONE.

BUT THE BIGGEST THING WAS

THEY WERE GOING TO SHOW THEM

TO MY DAD.

Reporter: SO TERESA

SNEAKED OUT OF HER HOUSE FOR

THE FIRST TIME IN HER LIFE.

STILL IN HER PAJAMAS AND

BAREFOOT, SO SHE WOULDN'T

WAKE HER PARENTS.

THE BOY MET HER IN THE ALLEY

AND TOOK HER TO HIS HOME.

HIS TWO COUSINS WERE

STANDING THERE.

THEY SAID, YOU'RE GOING TO

EARN THESE BACK.

AND I'M, LIKE, OKAY, HOW?

AND HE SAID, BY DOING

WHATEVER WE TELL YOU TO DO.

AND THEY PROCEEDED TO RAPE

ME.

Reporter: THAT WAS JUST

THE BEGINNING OF WHAT BECAME

TWO LONG YEARS OF

INTIMIDATION AND SEXUAL

ABUSE.

NOT JUST FROM THE TWO

COUSINS, BUT FROM HUNDREDS

OF MEN.

IT PROBABLY WAS THREE

DOZEN A WEEK, THREE OR FOUR

HOURS AT A TIME.

NEVER LESS THAN TWO PEOPLE A

NIGHT.

PROBABLY ABOUT 10.

YEAH, TIED UP, SPREAD EAGLE,

WHICH IS, YOU KNOW,

HORRIBLE.

THEY WOULD USE DIFFERENT

OBJECTS AND, YOU KNOW, HIT

YOU AND BE NOT JUST ONE

PERSON AT A TIME, EITHER.

I MEAN, NUMEROUS PEOPLE, AND

JUST TAKE THEIR TURN AFTER

TURN.

I WASN'T PERMITTED TO

SPEAK.

NOT EVEN ONE WORD.

I MEAN, THIS ONE GUY CAME IN

ONE TIME AND HE ASKED, YOU

KNOW, ONE OF THE COUSINS

WHAT'S HER NAME?

AND THE RESPONSE REALLY

CRUSHED ME.

EVEN MORE THAN HAVING TO DO

THOSE PHYSICAL ACTS.

BECAUSE HE SAID, IT DOESN'T

MATTER.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE A NAME.

AND I JUST WANTED TO DIE.

THEY WOULD TELL ME OVER AND

OVER AGAIN THAT WE OWN YOU.

YOU HAVE TO DO THIS FOR AS

LONG AS WE SAY, OR ELSE

WE'LL KILL YOUR FAMILY.

IF I WENT OUT TO THE

MAILBOX, SOMETIMES THERE

WOULD BE A BLACK ROSE OR A

DEAD BIRD IN THE MAILBOX,

JUST TO LET ME KNOW THAT

THAT COULD BE ME.

THEY WERE VERY INTIMIDATING

TO THE TEACHERS AS WELL.

THEY WOULD PULL ME RIGHT OUT

OF CLASS, RIGHT OUT OF

TYPING CLASS, AND SAY WE

NEED TO SEE HER.

AND THEY WOULD, YOU KNOW,

TAKE ME TO SOMEBODY'S HOUSE

THAT I DIDN'T KNOW IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD, AND TAKE ME IN

TO THE SAME SCENARIO.

TO A BASEMENT THAT WAS MADE

OVER, AND GUYS WERE THERE

WAITING.

YOU KNOW, MOMS AND GRANDMAS

AND THE KIDS UPSTAIRS.

THEY WERE UPSTAIRS COOKING

DINNER, OR DOING THEIR

HOMEWORK.

AND I WAS DOWN THERE BEING

TORTURED.

Reporter: AFTER EACH

EPISODE, SHE WOULD SINK INTO

A BATH AT HOME, AND TRY TO

WASH AWAY BOTH THE PHYSICAL

AND THE EMOTIONAL PAIN.

BUT ONLY A COUPLE OF HOURS A

SLEEP AT NIGHT, HER GRADES

DRASTICALLY DROPPED.

TERESA'S PARENTS BLAMED IT

ON HORMONES AND SENT HER TO

A COUNSELLOR, BUT SHE

REFUSED TO TALK.

IT WASN'T WORTH IT, DIE

OR TELL SOMEBODY.

AND ARE THEY GOING TO

BELIEVE YOU?

THE TORTURE IN THE

CONVERTED BASEMENTS

CONTINUED, AND TERESA

ENDURED IT, BELIEVING THAT

EVENTUALLY SHE WOULD EARN

THOSE PICTURES BACK.

I BELIEVED, STUPIDLY,

THAT I WAS GOING TO BE GOOD

ENOUGH TO GET THEM BACK.

AND IT WOULD BE ALL OVER AND

I COULD GO ON WITH MY LIFE

AGAIN.

Reporter: JUST WHEN SHE

COULD BARELY TAKE ANY MORE

ABUSE, THE TORTURE

INCREASED.

INSTEAD OF BEING TAKEN TO A

BASEMENT, TERESA WAS DRUGGED

AND TRANSPORTED FAR OUT OF

TOWN.

THEY PULLED ME OUT OF THE

CAR BY MY HAIR, AND I STOOD

THERE.

AND WE WERE IN -- IT SEEMED

TO BE LIKE AN INNER CITY,

AND IT WAS A NASTY MOTEL.

I COULDN'T SEE THE BED.

I COULDN'T SEE THE DRESSER

BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY

GUYS IN THERE.

I REMEMBERED LAYING THERE

AND THINKING, I WANT MY

MOMMY.

Reporter: SOMEONE AT

THE MOTEL CALLED THE POLICE,

AND THEY DROVE HER HOME.

THE POLICE OFFICER LOOKED

AT ME, AND I KEPT MY EYES

DOWN.

AND HE SAID, YOU KNOW, I

KNOW WHO DID THIS.

I KNOW WHO IS BEHIND THIS.

THIS IS THE NAME OF THE

PEOPLE, RIGHT?

AND I KEPT MY EYES DOWN.

I KNEW IF I TALKED, IF I

TOLD THEM WHO DID IT, I

WOULD BE DEAD, WITHOUT A

DOUBT.

Reporter: WITHIN 24

HOURS TERESA'S DOG WENT

MISSING.

SHE GOT A CALL FROM THE

COUSINS.

HEARD BARKING IN THE

BACKGROUND, AND THEN A

GUNSHOT.

BEFORE THEY HAD A CHANCE TO

TAKE HER LIFE, TERESA'S DEAD

GOT A JOB TRANSFER.

AND HER TIME AS A SEX SLAVE

ENDED.

SHE RECEIVED A FEW OF THE

PHOTOS BACK, AND WAS

REPLACED IN THE TRAFFICKING

RING BY ANOTHER UNSUSPECTING

TEENAGED GIRL.

THEN THE LONG JOURNEY OF

HEALING BEGAN.

Pat: WHAT A STORY.

IT'S PUT OUT IN THE BOOK

CALLED "THE SLAVE ACROSS THE

STREET."

IT IS A RIVETING STORY THAT

TERESA HAS WRITTEN.

AND TERESA FLORENCE JOINS US

FOR THE REST OF HER STORY.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

Pat: YOU WERE 15 YEARS

OLD, AND THIS BOY YOU WERE

ATTRACTED TO AS A TEENAGER,

HE GOT YOU IN A HOUSE AND

RAPED YOU.

UH-HUH.

Pat: AND YOU WERE

COVERED WITH BLOOD, AS

UNDERSTAND IT?

YES, I WAS.

Pat: YOU NEVER HAD SEX

BEFORE?

YUP.

I WAS A VIRGIN.

Pat: THAT IS STATUTORY

RAPE.

AND HE COULD HAVE BEEN

ARRESTED AND PUT IN JAIL,

BUT YOU DIDN'T KNOW THAT,

DID YOU?

I HAD NO IDEA.

Pat: BUT HE HAD A

COUSIN TAKING PICTURES.

AND WHAT DID HE SAY?

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO

EARN THESE BACK.

Pat: AND HE SAID, IF

NOT, HE WAS GOING TO GIVE

THEM TO THE CHURCH.

YOU WERE CATHOLIC?

YUP.

YUP.

MY FATHER -- HE WAS GOING TO

SHOW MY DAD, GIVE THEM TO MY

DAD'S BOSS, AND POST THEM

ALL AROUND SCHOOL.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T KNOW

ANY BETTER, BUT YOU COULD

HAVE BLOWN THE WHISTLE ON

HIM AND HE WOULD HAVE BEEN

LOCKED UP, AND YOU WOULD

HAVE HAD A CLEAR CASE.

BUT YOU DIDN'T KNOW ANY OF

THAT.

IN THOSE DAYS, YOU DON'T

THINK THAT KIND OF THING IS

GOING TO HAPPEN TO YOUR KIDS

WHEN YOU LIVE IN A REALLY

NICE AREA.

Pat: IT WAS

BIRMINGHAM --

BIRMINGHAM, MICHIGAN.

Pat: THAT'S HIGH

CLASS.

VERY HIGH CLASS.

Pat: AND YOUR FATHER IS

A VERY SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESSMAN?

YES.

Pat: SO YOU WEREN'T IN

SOME SLUM BACKGROUND?

NOT AT ALL.

Pat: YOU DIDN'T HAVE A

GOOD ENOUGH RELATIONSHIP TO

TALK WITH YOUR DAD OR MOM?

I WAS ASHAMED.

I DISOBEYED THEM.

AND I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO

DATE YET.

I THOUGHT THEY WOULD SEE ME

DIFFERENDIFFERENTLY.

I DIDN'T WANT THEM TO KNOW.

IN MY FAMILY, WE REALLY

VALUED VER VIRGINITY UNTIL

WE GOT MARRIED.

Pat: BUT THESE FOLKS

WOULD TAKE YOUR CLOTHES OFF

AND TIED YOU TO A BED.

UH-HUH.

Pat: AND WHAT DID THEY

DO?

PROCEEDED TO GANG RAPE

ME.

AND PEOPLE PAID FOR THE

PRIVILEGE TO DO THAT.

Pat: HOW MANY?

IT WAS NEVER LESS THAN

TWO OR THREE A NIGHT, AND

SOMETIMES UP TO 20.

Pat: HOW DID YOU

SURVIVE?

JUST OUT OF THE GRACE OF

GOD.

Pat: BUT YOU DIDN'T GET

PREGNANT.

ISN'T THAT AMAZING?

I KNOW.

THERE IS A MEDICAL REASON

FOR THAT, WHICH I TALK ABOUT

IN MY BOOK.

DR. BERYLS TALKS ABOUT IT.

BUT I BELIEVE, REALLY, IT

WAS GOD'S DESIGN.

HE HAD A BIGGER PURPOSE.

MAYBE HE KNEW I COULDN'T

TAKE THAT.

Pat: HOW DID YOU STAND

IT?

20 PEOPLE?

HERE YOU ARE, TIED, HANDS

AND FOOT TO A BED, SPREAD

EAGLE, AND THESE GUYS ARE

RAPING YOU, AND THEN THEY

START SLAPPING YOU?

IT IS SOMETHING THAT

HAUNTS YOUR DREAMS.

Pat: WERE YOU BURNING

YOU WITH CIGARETTES OR

SOMETHING?

NOT THAT, BUT IT IS

DEFINITELY A VERY VIOLENT

LIFESTYLE, AND IT TAKES

YEARS TO HEAL FROM THAT.

Pat: THEY WERE USING

OBJECTS TO ASSAULT YOU?

UH-HUH.

IT IS VERY COMMON FOR THESE

GIRLS TO HAVE A LIFE LIKE

THAT, DAILY LIFE.

Pat: WHEN YOU WERE

GOING TO SCHOOL, YOUR GRADES

STARTED DROPPING OFF?

YEAH, THERE WERE A LOT OF

RED FLAGS.

Pat: YOU SAID THE

POLICE OFFICER TOOK YOU HOME

AFTER A VIOLENT RAPE, THE

COUNSELLOR, YOUR OWN MOTHER,

NONE OF THEM PICKED UP ON

IT.

THEY HAD NO IDEA.

AND WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT,

HOW WOULD THEY HAVE?

IT WAS 30 YEARS AGO.

AND I WASN'T TALKING.

I WAS TRYING TO PROTECT MY

FAMILY BECAUSE I THOUGHT

THEY WOULD BE KILLED.

THEY THREATENED MY LITTLE

BROTHERS.

THEY FOLLOWED US.

I THOUGHT ON ONE HAND,

TOMORROW IT WOULD BE ALL

OVER.

I CAN EARN THESE PICTURES

OVER AND IT WILL BE

FINISHED.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I WAS

TERRIFIED FOR MY FAMILY'S

LIFE.

Pat: YOU DON'T WANT TO

IDENTIFY THESE PEOPLE.

THEY'RE MIDDLE EASTERNERS

BECAUSE YOU'RE AFRAID THEY

MAY STILL COME AFTER YOU?

THEY STILL LIVE THERE,

AND THEY WERE NEVER

CONVICTED.

BUT IT COULD BE ANYBODY.

IT IS MEN OF EVERY AGE,

EVERY SOCIO-ECONOMIC

BACKGROUND AND EVERY RACE,

SO IT REALLY DOESN'T

MATTER.

Pat: WHAT HAPPENS IN

YOUR MIND.

DID YOU JUST SHUT OFF?

OH, YEAH.

YOU JUST KIND OF LEAVE YOUR

BODY.

EVEN YEARS LATER, IN

COLLEGE, WHEN I HAD GOTTEN

AWAY FROM IT, IT IS STILL

INSIDE YOU.

AND YOU NEED TO TALK ABOUT

IT, AND YOU NEED TO HEAL.

AND I DIDN'T KNOW THE LOVE

OF THE LORD AT THAT TIME.

SO IT WAS REALLY HARD TO

HEAL.

YOU JUST SHOVE IT INSIDE.

Pat: YOU HAVE THE

SOAP -- WHAT DOES THAT SOAP

SAY.

IT SAYS, ARE YOU BEING

FORCED TO DO ANYTHING YOU DO

NOT WANT TO DO.

HAVE YOU BEEN THREATENED IF

YOU TRY TO LEAVE.

HAVE YOU WITNESSED YOUNG

GIRLS BEING PROSTITUTED, AND

IF SO, CALL...

Pat: AND YOU'RE PASSING

THEM ALL OVER NEW ORLEANS?

YES.

HOPING THAT ONE GIRL WILL

SEE THIS IN THE BATHROOM AND

MAKE THE PHONE CALL.

Pat: THIS IS SO SCARY.

NOT ONLY ARE THEY BEATEN,

BUT THEY'RE THREATENED WITH

DEATH.

IT IS BRUTAL.

IT IS BRUTAL.

IT IS LIKE BEING IN A CULT.

THEY BELIEVE THESE GUYS LOVE

THEM, BUT THEY'RE MAKING

THEM DO THIS.

AND THEY DON'T KNOW ANY

OTHER WAY OUT OF IT.

Pat: AND THE THING THAT

STRUCK YOU, YOU DIDN'T EVEN

HAVE A NAME.

WHAT'S HER NAME?

IT DOESN'T MATTER.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE A NAME.

THAT WAS DEVASTATING TO

HEAR.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE A NAME.

SHE IS NOTHING.

Pat: IT IS TERRIBLE

THAT MEN WOULD TREAT HUMAN

BEINGS THIS WAY.

I KNOW.

IT IS REALLY SAD.

Pat: YOU'VE GONE ON AND

GOTTEN MARRIED.

DID YOU TELL YOUR HUSBAND

ALL OF THIS STUFF?

I TRIED TO, BUT A LOT OF

TIMES WHAT WOMEN WILL DO IF

YOU'RE NOT HEALED YET, GET

INTO NOT SO HEALTHY

RELATIONSHIPSMENT AND HE

DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR MY

STORY.

DIDN'T WANT TO THINK OF ME

DIFFERENTLY, SO, AGAIN, FOR

10 YEARS, IT WAS A VERY

DIFFICULT TIME.

AND AFTER THAT IS WHEN I

CHANGED MY LIFE AND DECIDED

I WAS A DAUGHTER OF GOD.

AND I DESERVED A LOT MORE

THAN THAT.

Pat: THIS BOOK IS A

CATHARSIS?

IT IS.

Pat: WHAT DO WE DO TO

STOP THIS?

I'VE HEARD IN MALLS, GIRLS

GETTING INJECTED WITH

HYPODERMICS, AND CARRIED

OFF.

IT HAPPENS ALL AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

I SPEAK TO HIGH SCHOOLS,

COLLEGES, CHURCHES, AND I

HAVE AT LEAST TWO GIRLS COME

UP TO ME AFTER EVERY TALK

AND SAY THANK YOU.

THEY LOOK ME IN THE EYE, AND

I KNOW IT HAPPENED TO THEM,

TOO.

OR THEY'LL SAY, MY STORY IS

JUST LIKE YOURS.

SO IT IS HAPPENING

EVERYWHERE.

Pat: MY STORY IS JUST

LIKE YOURS?

I'M NOT A VIOLENT PERSON,

BUT THERE IS ONE GROUP OF

PEOPLE THAT I WOULD LIKE TO

SEE AN INSTANT DEATH, AND

THAT IS THESE SEX DRIVERS.

IT IS HORRIBLE.

I HAVE A LOT OF MEN WHO

COME UP TO ME AND SAY, I CAN

TAKE CARE OF THAT FOR YOU.

AND I SAY, WE NEED TO LET

THE LORD TAKE CARE OF THAT

ONE.

Pat: TERESA, GOD BLESS

YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

Pat: FOR SHARING THE

DEEP SECRETS OF THE THINGS

THAT HAVE BEEN DONE TO YOU.

THE AMAZING THING IS, YOU

SEEM TO HAVE COME OUT ON THE

OTHER SIDE.

THAT'S THE GRACE OF GOD.

IT IS THE GRACE OF GOD.

AND TO HAVE SOMETHING TO

HELP OTHERS GET OUT OF IT

HAS BEEN SO HEALING, TOO.

I FUND THIS OUT OF MY POCKET

AND DO DONATIONS OF PEOPLE.

IT HAS JUST BEEN A MIRACLE.

Pat: WELL, SHE SHARES

MORE OF THE STORY.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "THE

SLAVE ACROSS THE STREET."

AND YOU CAN FIND OUT ABOUT

SOAP MINISTRY ON OUR WEBSITE

AT CBN.COM.

OUR THANKS TO TERESA

FLORENCE.

GOD BLESS YOU.

THANK YOU.

Kristi: THANK YOU,

PAT.

AS BAD A PROBLEM AS HUMAN

TRAFFICKING IS IN AMERICA,

CHECK THIS OUT: IT IS EVEN

WORSE OVERSEAS.

IT IS THE FASTEST GROWING

ENTERPRISE EN THE WORLD.

LATER, WE'LL SHOW YOU A

UNIQUE WAY ONE PERSON IS

HELPING VICTIMS OF SEX

TRAFFICKING.

SO WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GO

AWAY.

Lee: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

THE NEWS THAT THE BOY SCOUTS

OF AMERICA MAY LIFT ITS BAN

ON HOMOSEXUAL MEMBERS IS NOT

SITTING WELL WITH MANY

RELIGIOUS BOOKS.

FRED LUTER SAID, IF THAT IS

WHAT THE LEADERSHIP IS

DOING, I THINK IT WILL BE A

SAD DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE

BOY SCOUTS OF AMERICA.

TO NOW SEE THIS ORGANIZATION

THAT I THOUGHT STOOD ON

BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES ABOUT TO

GIVE INTO THE POLITICALLY

CORRECT THING IS

DISAPPOINTING.

A DECISION ON THE BAN IS

EXPECTED BY THE BOY SCOUTS

AS EARLY AS NEXT WEEK.

AN ELITE IRANIAN MILITARY

GROUP AND A TERRORIST GROUP

ARE STEPPING UP THEIR

EFFORTS TO ATTACK WESTERN

TARGETS.

THE LEBANESE MILITANT GROUP

HEZBOLLAH AND THE KUDZ FORCE

ARE A GROWING THREAT.

THEY PLOTTED MORE THAN 20

TERROR ATTACKS TOGETHER

BETWEEN MAY OF 2011 AND JULY

OF 2012.

ONLY ONE OF THOSE ATTACKS

SUCCEED, BUT THE AUTHOR

CONCLUDES THE GROUPS ARE

LEARNING FROM THEIR MISTAKES

AND IMPROVING THEIR

EFFECTIVENESS.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

STAY TUNED, PAT AND KRISTI

WILL BE BACK WITH MORE OF

"THE 700 CLUB" AFTER THIS.

Kristi: WELCOME BACK TO

"THE 700 CLUB."

IN SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD,

FAMILIES HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO

SELL THEIR OWN DAUGHTERS TO

TRAFFICKERS, SIMPLY BECAUSE

THEY CAN'T AFFORD TO FEED

ANOTHER PERSON.

SADLY, THE VICTIMS OF SEXUAL

EXPLOITATION FIND THAT LIFE

IS STILL DIFFICULT, EVEN IF

THEY'RE LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE

RESCUED.

BUT IN ONE OF THE WORST

COUNTRIES FOR SEX

TRAFFICKING, ONE GROUP IS

HELPING.

AND IT IS GETTING A BIG

BOOST FROM A FASHION

DESIGNER LOCATED HALF WAY

AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: THE NEPAL

BORDER IS ONE THE BUSIEST

AREAS FOR SEX TRAFFICKING IN

THE WORLD.

WOMEN AND CHILDREN CAN BE

BOUGHT BY A TRAFFICKER FOR

AS LITTLE AS $19 U.S.

THEN THE TRAFFICKER CAN SELL

THE VICTIM FOR UP TO $560

U.S.

UNFORTUNATELY, THIS ILLEGAL

TRADE IS ONE OF THE FASTEST

GROWING INDUSTRIES AND MAKES

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS EVERY

YEAR.

A NEPALI NON-GOVERNMENT

ORGANIZATION, ALONG WITH

SEVERAL OTHER GROUPS, ARE

HELPING VICTIMS OF THESE

HEINOUS CRIMES WITH THE

NEPALI RESCUE PROJECT.

AFTER THESE WOMEN AND

CHILDREN ARE RESCUED, THEY

ARE PROVIDED COUNSELLING,

EDUCATION, AND JOBS SKILLS

TRAINING.

CLOTHING DESIGNER, KATIE

MARTINEZ, WITH HER COMPANY,

ELEGANT TEES, ARE AMONG

THOSE WHO JOINED FORCES WITH

A NEPALI RESCUE FORCE.

THEY GIVE THESE WOMEN SEWING

JOBS AND THE HOPE OF A

BETTER FUTURE.

Kristi: WELL, KATIE

MARTINEZ IS HERE WITH US

NOW.

KATIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US ON "THE 700

CLUB."

THANK YOU.

Kristi: LET'S TALK

ABOUT THIS RESCUE, THE

NEPALI RESCUE PROJECT, AND

HOW YOU GOT INVOLVED WITH

IT?

IT DIDN'T HAPPEN RIGHT

AWAY WHEN I STARTED MY

COMPANY.

I'M A FASHION DESIGNER, AND

WHILE A STUDENT IN SCHOOL, I

WANTED TO HELP BECAUSE I

LEARNED ABOUT SEX

TRAFFICKING AND IT BROKE MY

HEART.

WHEN THE DOORS OPENED TO

START MY CLOTHING LINE, I

WAS, LIKE, I HAVE TO DO

SOMETHING.

SO I BASICALLY HAD THIS

MISSION TO FIGHT SEX

TRAFFICKING, AND STUDENTS AT

REGENT UNIVERSITY CONTACTED

ME BECAUSE THEY WERE FRIENDS

WITH THE NEPALI RESCUE

PROJECT, AND FROM THERE, IT

WAS PRETTY MUCH HISTORY.

Kristi: HELP US

UNDERSTAND THE TIE.

YOU ARE A FASHION DESIGNER,

HOW DOES IT ALL WORK

TOGETHER?

YOU DESIGN THE CLOTHING, AND

YET MANY OF THE YOUNG WOMEN

WHO HAVE BEEN RESCUED, THEY

HELP YOU TO MANUFACTURE THE

CLOTHES, IS THAT CORRECT?

YES.

Kristi: YOU PIT I PUT

IT IN YOUR OWN WORDS.

IN NEPAL, IT IS VERY

POOR.

FOR A WOMAN TO HAVE A JOB

THERE, IT IS VERY RARE.

IT BRINGS A LOT OF DIGNITY

TO THE FAMILY BECAUSE SHE IS

CONSIDERED A COMMODITY.

WHEN SHE CAN WORK, IT

CHANGES THINGS SO MUCH.

SHE HAS HER DIGNITY.

PARTICULARLY FOR THE WOMEN

RESCUED FROM TRAFFICKING, A

LOT OF THEM COME FROM BROKEN

HOMES, AND THEY DON'T HAVE

MUCH OF A CHANCE TO STAY OUT

OF IT.

A LOT OF THEM GET LURED BACK

IN.

SO WE ARE WORKING WITH THE

NEPALI RESCUE PROJECT TO

GIVE THEM SEWING JOBS.

AND MY CLOTHING LINE IS

PROVIDING THEM A WAY FOR

THEM TO ACTUALLY MAKE MONEY

DOING THAT.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT.

AND GIVING THEM A HOPE, AND

GIVING THEM A FUTURE, AND

GIVING THEM A PURPOSE.

I LOVE THAT.

LET'S TALK ABOUT YOUR

ELEGANT TEES.

I'M A FASHION DESIGNER

THAT BELIEVES IN MODESTY.

SO I CREATE TOPS THAT ARE

LONG.

THEY'RE EASY TO WEAR AS A

T-SHIRT, BUT THEY ARE

ELEGANT.

Kristi: A LITTLE BIT OF

SASS, AND A LITTLE BIT OF

FLAVOR.

YEAH.

YOU CAN DRESS THEM UP, DRESS

THEM DOWN, PUT A BELT WITH

THEM, TUCK THEM IN.

AND WEAR THEM WITH JEANS.

Kristi: WE'RE GOING TO

SEE A LOT OF OUR MODELS.

OUR REGENT UNIVERSITY HAS

PARTNERED WITH THIS

WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION AS

WELL.

SO LET'S JUST BRING OUT OUR

MODELS NOW.

LET'S ROCK IT.

AWESOME.

THIS IS THE FIRST DESIGN

THAT WE'RE GOING TO BRING

OUT.

IT IS CALLED THE GENESIS

STYLE BECAUSE THE FRONT IS

AN INTERPRETATION OF THE

BEGINNING OF TIME.

THE WEAVING JUST REMINDS ME

SO MUCH OF WHEN THE WORLD

WAS BORN.

Kristi: I LOVE THAT.

AND I LOVE THAT BEAUTIFUL

SEA GREEN.

THAT'S THE NEW COLOR,

RIGHT?

YES.

SPEARMINT.

Kristi: ANOTHER FORM OF

GREEN.

THIS TOP HAS A GORGEOUS

CROCHET EMBELLISHMENT.

AND IN SOME WAYS YOU CAN

WEAR IT RIGHT NOW IF YOU

JUST WANT TO THROW A JACKET

OVER IT.

Kristi: YOU KNOW WHAT

IS SO NEAT ABOUT THIS,

KATIE, THERE IS SUCH A LEVEL

OF MODESTY BUT CHICNESS AND

FASHION.

I MADE THIS FOR MY NIECE,

LEXI, WHO HAS A LOT OF

ATTITUDE.

BUT SHE IS SWEET, TOO.

THIS IS A OSAMA BIN

COMBINATION OF HER

ATTITUDE.

IT HAS A NECK LINE, AND THE

SIDE IS VERY SASSY.

THE NEXT DESIGN IS A FITTED

STYLE, BUT IT HAS SO MANY

STATEMENT DETAILS.

IT IS VERY SLENDERIZING.

I LOVE WEARING THIS IN THE

PURPLE DLOAR.

COLOR.

THE ROUSHING ON THE SIDE

BRINGS IN YOUR TORSO.

Kristi: I HAVE TO TELL

YOU, KATIE, THAT IS MY

FAVORITE.

NUMBER ONE, IT IS MY COLOR.

AND NUMBER TWO, IT IS SEXY.

THIS ONE IS A RELAXED

STYLE.

IT HAS THE ASYMMETRICAL AREA

ON THE SIDE.

VERY FEMININE, HIGHLIGHTED

ACCENTS.

VERY EASY TO WEAR AND WASH,

TOO.

Kristi: WONDERFUL.

LOOK AT THESE REGENT

UNIVERSITY STUDENTS.

THEY'RE ROCKING IT.

MY HUSBAND IS A CLASSICAL

SINGER, AND SO HE INS

INSPIRES ME A LOT.

OPERA WAS THE INSPIRATION

FOR THIS BLOUSE.

IT REMINDS ME OF THE

ROMANTIC ERA.

Kristi: I LIKE THE

BALLOON SLEEVES -- WHAT ARE

THEY CALLED?

PEASANT SLEEVES.

Kristi: I LIKE IT.

THIS IS SIMPLE, VERY

ELEGANT.

THE NECK LINE IS REALLY THE

DIGNIFIED PART OF THIS TOP.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE MODEL IS

DRESSED UP FOR WORK, BUT SHE

COULD JUST TOTALLY GO OUT

FOR SOME DINNER WITH SOME

FRIENDS AFTERWARDS.

Kristi: IT IS LIKE YOU

KIND OF WANT TO TAKE THOSE

GLASSES OFF AND UNLEASH THAT

PONY TAIL, AND SHE IS

READY.

HERE WE GO.

GLAMOUR RIGHT HERE.

SHE IS WEARING A RED CARPET

TUNIC, AND I LOVE THAT.

IT IS JUST SO DRAPEY, AND

THE PRINT IS PHENOMENAL.

Kristi: THIS IS

WONDERFUL.

FANTASTIC.

OOH, HERE WE GO.

THE DRESS.

TALK ABOUT THE DRESS.

THIS IS THE HOPE DRESS.

IT IS THE VERY FIRST DESIGN

WE DID WITH THE NEPALI

RESCUE GIRLS.

THEY DID SUCH A WONDERFUL

JOB.

TO CELEBRATE THIS DRESS,

WE'RE GOING TO OFFER IT ON

OUR WEBSITE FOR JUST $30 FOR

AS LONG AS SUPPLIES LAST.

Kristi: SPEAKING OF

YOUR WEBSITE, IF WE WANTED

TO SUPPORT NOT JUST THIS

ORGANIZATION, BUT TO SUPPORT

THE FASHION LINE --

VISIT

ELEGANTTEASE.COM.

Kristi: AND THIS IS

WONDERFUL, NOT ONLY WOULD WE

BE SUPPORTING YOU, BUT THE

WONDERFUL YOUNG LADIES IN

NEPAL.

FANTASTIC.

KATIE, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

BEING HERE.

LADIES, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

GIVE US THE MISS AMERICA

WAVE.

FANTASTIC.

FANTASTIC REGENT UNIVERSITY

STUDENTS.

WE APPRECIATE YOU.

AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

CHECK OUT ELEGANT TEES FULL

LINE OF CLOTHING.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

OUR WEBSITE, CBN.COM.

AND ANOTHER THING WE NEED TO

PUT ON OUR PRAYER LIST TO

PRAY ABOUT.

COMING UP.

WE'RE GOING TO ANSWER YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

SO WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T GO

AWAY.

Pat: WELCOME BACK.

IT IS TIME FOR "BRING IN

ON."

I KNOW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

SENDING IN QUESTIONS OVER

THE E-MAIL, AND SO I'M GOING

TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU VERY

QUICKLY.

DOUGLAS LOGS IN AND

SAID, "DID JESUS PRE-EXIST

IN HEAVEN BEFORE HE WAS BORN

ON EARTH?

WHAT WAS HIS ROLE?"

Pat: ACCORDING TO THE

BIBLE, HE IS THE SECOND

PERSON OF THE TRINITY.

AND HE EXISTED FOREVER.

SO THE FATHER, THE SON AND

THE HOLY SPIRIT HAVE ALWAYS

BEEN THERE.

SO THE ONE WE KNOW AS JESUS

WAS THE SPIRIT BECOMING

FLESH, BUT HE EXISTED FROM

ALL ETERNITY.

THERE WAS NEVER A TIME THAT

HE WAS NOT.

THAT'S WHAT THE THEO

THEOLOGIANS SAY.

RUSSELL SAYS, "I HAVE HEARD

THERE ARE DIFFERENT LEVELS

OF HELL.

IS THIS TRUE?"

Pat: I DON'T KNOW

ANYTHING IN THE BIBLE THAT

INDICATES THERE ARE

DIFFERENT LEVELS OF HELL.

HELL IS HELL.

I'M SURE THERE ARE SOME WHO

CAN FIND SOMETHING AND SAY

YES.

BUT THE BASIC THING ABOUT

HELL IS THEY TALK ABOUT A

LAKE OF FIRE AND THEY TALK

ABOUT BURNING.

I THINK THE MAIN THING ABOUT

HELL IS THE OFF F AWFUL

REMORSE.

JESUS TALKED ABOUT WEEPING

AND GNASHING AND TEETH.

HOW MANY LEVELS ARE THERE?

YOU'RE OUT IN THE COLD,

ALONE FOREVER.

NANCY HAS SAID, "I HEARD

MANY PREACHERS TALK ABOUT

THE FIRST FRUITS.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?"

YOU LOOK AT THE FEAST THAT

THE JEWS HAD AND THE FEAST

OF FIRST FRUITS WAS REALLY

WHAT WE HAVE IN PENTECOST.

IT WAS THE FIRST FRUITS THAT

CAME FROM THE HARVEST

HARVEST.

AND THAT WAS 50 DAYS AFTER

THE PASSOVER.

SO THAT'S FIRST FRUITS.

IT'S THE FIRST OF THE

HARVEST SEASON.

AND YOU CAN SAY, WELL, THESE

ARE THE FIRST PEOPLE TO COME

TO THE LORD OF A PARTICULAR

AREA, OR SOMETHING.

YOU CAN USE THE TERM "FIRST

FRUITS" TO DESCRIBE

ANYTHING, THE FIRST IN TERMS

OF SOME KIND OF A HARVEST.

CONNIE SAYS, MATTHEW 25: 32-

46 EXPLAINS THE FIRST

NATIONS.

I'M UNDERSTANDING THAT THAT

MEANS EVERYONE.

"THE SON OF MAN WILL SIT ON

HIS THRONE JUDGING THE

NATIONS."

IT SAYS THAT.

AND THE SHEEP AND THE GOATS,

IN RELATION TO ISRAEL, IN

RELATION TO BELIEVERS, IN AS

MUCH AS YOU'VE DONE, THE

LEAST OF THESE, MY BROTHER,

YOU'VE DONE TO ME.

I WAS IN PRISON, AND YOU

CAME TO VISIT ME.

WHEN DID YOU DO THIS?

WELL, IF YOU DID IT TO THE

LEAST OF THESE, MY BROTHER,

THEN YOU DID IT TO ME.

SO IN A SENSE, THE NATIONS

ARE GOING TO BE JUDGED IN

RELATION TO HOW THEY TREAT

EITHER THE CHRISTIANS OR THE

JEWS, DEPENDING ON HOWEVER

YOU INTERPRET THAT.

BUT ALL OF THE NATIONS WILL

BE GATHERED TOGETHER AT THE

GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGMENT,

AND GOD IS GOING TO JUDGE

EVERYBODY.

BUT THOSE WHO HAVE ACCEPTED

JESUS AS SAVIOR WILL NOT

COME INTO JUDGMENT, JESUS

SAID, BUT ARE PASSED FROM

DEATH INTO LIFE.

SO WHEN YOU COME TO THE

LORD, YOU DON'T GO INTO THE

FINAL JUDGMENT.

BUT THERE WILL BE THE

JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST FOR

REWARDS FOR THOSE WHO

BELIEVE.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT FOR TODAY'S SHOW.

TOMORROW, PLAYERS FROM THE

RAVENS AND THE 49ers ARE

GETTING READY FOR THE SUPER

BOWL THIS SUNDAY.

THESE ARE THE WORDS FROM

JESUS FOUND IN JOHN 8: 12:

"I AM THE LIGHT OF THE

WORLD.

HE WHO FOLLOWS ME SHALL NOT

WALK IN DARKNESS, BUT SHALL

HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE."

GOD BLESS YOU.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
