TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH," DEAD

ON ARRIVAL.

DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS SAY

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S SECRET PLAN

FOR IMMIGRATION REFORM FALLS

SHORT.

PLUS ENTERTAINMENT VERSES

EDUCATION.

HOW WATCHING BETTER TV CAN

PRODUCE BETTER CHILDREN.

FOR YEARS, MEDICAL INDUSTRY

HAS BEEN WARNING PATIENTS TO

KEEP CHOLESTEROL LEVELS LOW.

NOW SOME CARDIOLOGISTS SAY CLET

ROLL CHOLESTEROL IS GOOD FOR

YOU.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM HEATHER SELLS.

IF THE BATTLE OVER IMMIGRATION

REFORM WASN'T HOT ENOUGH, A

LEAKED RESPONSE.

THE PRESIDENT IS USING

POLITICAL -- CAUSED BY ILLEGAL

IMMIGRATION.

JOHN WAAGE HAS MORE ON TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

REPORTER: THE PLAN WOULD

CREATE A VISA FOR THOSE IN THE

COUNTRY ILLEGAL AND BECOME LEGAL

RESIDENTS IN EIGHT YEARS.

AND CALLS FOR BUSINESS OWNERS TO

CHECK IMMIGRATION STATUS OF NEW

HIRES WITHIN FOUR YEARS.

WHITE HOUSE CLAIMS TAS BACKUP

PLAN IN CASE CONGRESS DOESN'T

ACT ON THE ISSUE.

IT MAYBE A HIGHER PRIORITY FOR

THE PRESIDENT THAN SOLVING THE

PROBLEM.

LEAKS DON'T HAPPEN ON

ACCIDENT.

THIS RAISES THE QUESTION WE

CONTINUE TO WATCH.

DOES THE PRESIDENT WANT A

RESULT?

OR BEAT UP REPUBLICANS SO HE CAN

GET POLITICAL ADVANTAGE IN THE

NEXT ELECTION.

I HOPE THAT REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS UP THERE DON'T GET

INVOLVED IN A TYPICAL WASHINGTON

BACK AND FORTH SIDE SHOW HERE

AND RATHER ROLL UP THEIR SLEEVES

AND GET TO WORK.

CUBAN SENATOR, MARCO RUBIO

SAYS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIS

PLAN AND PRESIDENT'S IS

EXTENDING GREEN CARD STATUS

SHOULD BE AFTER THEY MAKE A WAY

TO SECURE BORDERS.

ONLY WAY WE WILL DO THIS IF

WE SECURE PEOPLE'S CONFIDENCE TO

SECURE THE BORDER.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THEY DON'T

WANT PRE-CONDITIONS TO THE PATH

OF A GREEN CARD.

BOTH REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS PREDICT THE LEAKED

PLAN WOULD FAIL.

JOHN WAAGE, CBN NEWS.

SENATOR MARCO RUBIO HAS

TURNED INFAMOUS SIP OF WATER

INTO A SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISING

CAMPAIGN.

RECLAIM AMERICA RUBIO'S

POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE HAS

RAISED MORE THAN $100,000 BY

SELLING 3400 WATER BOTTLES SINCE

WEDNESDAY.

COME WITH RUBIO'S NAME AND

MINIMUM CONTRIBUTION OF $25.

SEND LIBERALS A MESSAGE NOT ONLY

DOES MARCO RUBIO INSPIRE YOU, HE

HYDRATES YOU, TOO.

DOCTOR THAT MADE THE KEYNOTE

SPEECH AT THE NATIONAL PRAYER

BREAKFAST, DR. BEN CARSON SPOKE

ABOUT TAXES AND HEALTH CARE.

HIS SPEECH HAS GOTTEN TWO

MILLION VIEWS AND CATAPULTED

BOOK "AMERICA THE BEAUTY" TO NO.

3 ON AMAZON.

CARSON SAID THERE IS ANOTHER

REASON FOR THE STRONG REACTION.

I MAY COVER THE FACT I PRAYED

FOR GOD TO GIVE ME WISDOM.

WHAT WOULD RESONATE, WHAT WOULD

BE IMPORTANT?

I DON'T THINK IT WAS

PARTICULARLY POLITICAL.

WHEN ASKED ON HIS OPINION OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

DR. CARSON SAID HE IS A GOOD

POLITICIAN.

AS FAR AS GETTING INTO POLITICS

IS CONCERNED, I LEAVE THAT UP TO

GOD.

GAS PRICES KEEP RISING.

AVERAGE PRICE WENT UP $.12 TO 36

$.

$.3

$3.

$3.67.

IT COULD MEAN MORE IN THE

SPRING.

PRICES GO UP $.40-$.60 IN THE

SPRING.

THEY COULD HIT $4 IN MAY.

DANGEROUS NEW STORM CAUSING

PROBLEMS FROM ROCKIES TO

DAKOTAS.

HEAVY SNOW AND POWERFUL WINDS

CAUSING WHITE OUT CONDITIONS

SUNDAY.

THIS NEW BLAST COMES AFTER MANY

ARE RECOVERING FROM THE MONSTER

BLIZZARD THAT BURIED SOME UNDER

THREE FOOT OF SNOW.

SCIENTISTS ARE SCRATCHING

THEIR HEADS OVER THE COSMIC COIN

COINCIDENCE.

THE METEOR THAT EXPLODED OVER

RUSSIA WAS THE -- IT MISSED

EARTH BY ONLY 17,000 MILES.

NASA SAYS THERE WAS NO

CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO.

EXPERTS SAY THIS COULD BE A

COSMIC WARNING SHOT AND REMINDER

TO CONTINUE TO INVEST IN SPACE

SCIENCE.

20 YEARS AGO IF DEA 13 FLEW

BY, WE WOULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN

IT.

ONE FORMER NASA ASTRONAUT IS

DEVELOPING A PLAN TO DETECT AS

ASTEROI

ASTEROIDS.

IT COULD GIVE EARTH DECADES OF

ADVANCED WARNING.

WITH 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 YEARS

OF NOTICE, IT IS STRAIGHTFORWARD

TO DEFLECT AN ASTEROID.

HIS PROJECT WILL COST 450

MILLION DOLLARS AND HOPING TO

RAISE THE MONEY THROUGH PUBLIC

DONATIONS.

IT IS THE SMALL PRICE YOU PAY

WHEN YOU THINK OF THE

ALTERNATIVE.

OFFICIALS ESTIMATE IT WILL COST

OVER 33 MILLION DOLLARS TO

REPAIR DAMAGE FROM THE RUSSIAN

METEOR.

HOW COULD WE LET PARTS OF OUR

CIVILIZATION GO AWAY,

BEDESTROYED IF WE COULD HAVE

DONE SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

BACK IN 2010, NATIONAL

RESEARCH COUNCIL CALLED FOR

CONGRESS TO FIND ASTEROIDS

BIGGER THAN A FOOTBALL FIELD.

ISLAMIC EXTREMIST GROUP IS

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR

KIDNAPPING SEVEN FOREIGNERS IN

NIGERIA.

RAIDERS USED EXPLOSIVES TO FORCE

THEIR WAY INTO A HOUSING

COMPOUND OF A LEBANESE

CONSTRUCTION FIRM.

THE KIDNAPPING WAS QUOTE, BASED

ON TRANSGRESSION AND ATROCITIES

BY THE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES IN

AFGHANISTAN AND MALI.

MINISTRY WORLD COMPASSION IS

ISSUING AN URGENT CALL TO PRAYER

FOR THE RELEASE OF IRAQI PASTOR.

THE GOVERNMENT ARRESTED A MAN

PASTOR JAMAL NOW SUFFERING

SERIOUS MEDICAL PROBLEMS.

HE PERSONALLY WORKED WITH PASTOR

JAMAL DELIVERING FOOD TO

REFUGEES IN NORTHERN IRAQ U.?

T.L. OZBORN PASSED AWAY ON

THURSDAY.

HE SUFFERED NO SICKNESS OR PAIN.

THE LORD SIMPLY TOOK HIS BREATH

AWAY.

HE STARTED OSBORN MINISTRIEMINISTRIES.

HE LIVED BY THE MOTTO ONE WAY

JESUS, ONE JOB, EVANGELISM.

THREE OF HIS CHILDREN DIED

PREMATURELY AND WIFE DAISY DIED

IN HIS ARMS.

HE TALKED ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

ON "THE 700 CLUB."

DISCOURAGEMENT AND EVEN WELL,

DEPRESSION.

OPPRESSION.

IT IS A MATTER OF THE THOUGHTS

THAT WE CHOOSE TO RETAIN.

IF WE THINK DEPRESSING THOUGHTS

WILL BE DEPRESSED.

I HAD TO CHANGE MY WAY OF

THINKING.

INSTEAD OF LAMENTING DAISY'S

DEATH AND BEING GONE FROM ME, I

SAID TO MYSELF, WAIT, THIS ISN'T

HELPING ME.

IT WON'T HELP ANYBODY ELSE.

SO I CHANGED MY THOUGHTS AND

REMEMBER -- I DREW FROM MY

MEMORY BANK AND REMEMBERED WHEN

SHE WAS WITH ME.

I COMFORT MYSELF, GOD COMFORTS

ME.

BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE CONTROL.

HE WAS 89 YEARS OLD.

YOU CAN SEE COMPLETE INTERVIEWS

FROM T.L. OSBORN BY GOING TO

CBNNEWS.COM.

COMING UP BY THE TV PROGRAMS

HARMING YOUR CHILD'S

DEVELOPMENT, WE'LL TELL YOU HOW

SWITCHING SHOWS CAN MAKE A

DIFFERENCE.

U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SAYS

HOME SCHOOLING IS NOT A

FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT.

THAT IS THE ARGUMENT THEY MADE

IN FEDERAL COURT AGAINST AN

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN FAMILY

FROM GERMANY SEEKING ASYLUM IN

THE U.S. THEY WERE FORCED TO

FLEE GERMANY.

U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC

HOLDER IS SAYING ASYLUM SHOULD

NOT BE GRANT D TO HOME

SCHOOLERS.

HOME SCHOOL LEGAL DEFENSE

ASSOCIATION IS REPRESENTING THE

ROMEIKE FAMILY.

WE ARE TROUBLED BY THE

ARGUMENTS MADE BY THE

GOVERNMENT.

IT IS OKAY FOR A COUNTRY, EVEN A

DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY TO BAN ALL

HOME EDUCATION.

THERE IS NO PROBLEM BECAUSE IT

IS EQUALLY APPLIED.

WE TAKE ISSUE.

IT IS TROUBLING FOR OUR

GOVERNMENT TO SAY THAT.

IT IS TROUBLING.

MICHAEL DONNELLY POINTS OUT

THERE IS A MOVE TO UNDERMINE

PARENTAL RIGHTS IN CONNECTICUT

AND THE U.S. YOU CAN FIND THE

REST OF THE INTERVIEW AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PASSENGER CHARGED WITH

SLAPPING A TODDLER DURING A

DELTA FLIGHT IS WITHOUT A JOB.

63-YEAR-OLD JOE HUNLY HIT A 19

YEAR OLD.

THE BOY WAS SITTING WITH HIS

MOTHER.

HE MADE A RACIAL SLUR BEFORE

SLAPPING THE CHILD.

IN A STATEMENT FROM HIS COMPANY,

HE IS NO LONGER WITH THE

COMPANY.

BETTER TV RELATES TO BETTER

BEHAVIOR.

CHANGING FROM VIOLENT TO

EDUCATIONAL TV CAN IMPROVE

BEHAVIOR OF PRESCHOOLERS.

SEATTLE INSTITUTE, LEAD AUTHOR

DR. DIMITRI CHRISTAKIS SAYS IT

PROVES WHAT CHILDREN WATCH IS AS

IMPORTANT AS HOW MUCH THEY

WATCH.

JOINING US TO TALK ABOUT THIS

IS DR. LINDA MINTLE ISN'T IT

COMMON SENSE?

YOU WOULD THINK SO, THINK

ABOUT THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION

GOING ON IN THE PASSED FEW WEEKS

IN TERMS OF VIOLENCE AND KIDS,

WE DON'T HEAR ABOUT MEDIA AND

THE ROLE THEY PLAY.

THE STUDY WAS IMPORTANT BECAUSE

IT HAD A DIRECT IMPACT

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU REMOVED THE

VIOLENCE AND SAW SUCH A CHANGE

IN THE BEHAVIOR OF THE KIDS IN

TERMS OF EMPATHY, RESPECT FOR

OTHER KIDS, SHARING THAT THEY

ENGAGED IN.

A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

PARENTS FIND THEMSELVES FALLING

INTO THE TRAP OF USING THE TV AS

A BABY SISTER, HOW DO YOU ADVISE

PARENTS?

NO. 1, GET THE TV OUT OF THE

BEDROOM.

THEY DO NOT MAKE GOOD DECISIONS

AND DON'T UNDERSTAND AT A VERY

YOUNG AGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

FANTASY AND REALITITY WHENNER

LOOKING AT VIOLENCE.

NO SHORT CUT, YOU KNOW THIS,

HEATHER, NO SHORT CUT IN TERMS

OF MONITORING WHAT THEY ARE

WATCHING, LOOKING AT THE

PROGRAMS.

HAVING CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE

WAY PEOPLE SOLVE PROBLEMS.

ONE OF THE THINGS IS IT IS

TEACHING KIDS TO RESOLVE

CONFLICT WITH VIOLENCE BECAUSE

OF TELEVISION.

YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT THEY

ARE WATCHING IN TERMS OF

CONTENT.

SHOWS LIKE VEGGIE TALES THAT ARE

NOT VIOLENT, I THINK THERE IS A

STUDY THAT SHOWS 20-25 ACTS OF

VIOLENCE ARE SEEN ON SATURDAY

MORNING HOURS.

WOULD YOU AGREE PARENTS

SHOULD FOCUS ON THE CONTENT OR

HOURS?

HOW SHOULD THEY VIEW THE WHOLE

SITUATION?

BOTH ARE IMPORTANT.

AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS

RECOMMEND CHILDREN SEE LESS THAN

TWO HOURS A DAY OF ALL SCREENS.

NOT JUST TELEVISION.

WE KNOW KIDS WITH GOOD AT OTHER

DEVICES.

BECAUSE THERE ARE OTHER FALLOUTS

FROM THE AMOUNT OF TIME LIKE

CHILDHOOD OBESITY IS A DIRECT

RESULT OF KIDS SITTING.

TV SCREEN DON'T TEACH

IMAGINATION AND LEADERSHIP

SKILLS.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE CONTENT.

THIS STUDY SAYS IT IS IMPORTANT.

GET YOUR KIDS OUTSIDE AND INTO

OTHER ACTIVITIEACTIVITIES.

ALL RIGHT, THANKS FOR YOUR

TIME.

UP NEXT, CHECK YOUR MEDICINE

CABINET, ONE COMMONLY USED DRUG

MAYBE SPEEDING UP THE RATE OF

ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE.

WE'LL TELL YOU WHAT IT IS.

HEART DISEASE IS AMERICA'S

NO. 1 KILLER, WHAT CAUSES IT?

FIRST DOCTORS CLAIMED

CHOLESTEROL.

THEN WE HEARD ONLY BAD

CHOLESTEROL WAS THE PROBLEM.

NOW THEY ARE CHANGING IT

AGAIN.

LORIE JOHNSON HAS MORE IN

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

IN THE FIGHT FOR BETTER

HEALTH, AMERICANS VIEW

CHOLESTEROL AS PUBLIC ENEMY NO.

1.

DOCTORS TELL US TO STAY AWAY

FROM FOOD HIGH IN SATURATED FAT

LIKE BUTTER, EGGS, AND MEAT

BECAUSE IT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR

HEART DISEASE.

WHAT IF THAT IS WRONG?

CHOLESTEROL WAS FOUND AT THE

SCENE OF THE CRIME.

IT IS NOT THE PERPETRATOR.

THIS CARDIOLOGIST BELIEVE

CHOLESTEROL DOES NOT CAUSE HARD

DISEASE.

THEY POINT THE FINGER AT

INFLAMMATION CAUSED BY EATING

TOO MUCH SUGAR.

A SMALL FRACTION OF CHOLESTEROL

IS BAD BECAUSE IT IS

INFLAMMATORY.

FOR THE MOST PART IT IS GOOD FOR

YOU.

CHOLESTEROL MANY TIMES CAN BE

A GIFT IN DISGUISE.

IN HIS NEW BOOK "THE GREAT

CHOLESTEROL MYTH."

MOST HAVE HIGH CHOLESTEROL, THAT

MEANS THE OTHER HALF HAVE LOW

CHOLESTEROL.

I WOULD DO ANGIE OWE GRAM ON

SOMEONE WITH 280.

THEY PRESCRIBE CHOLESTEROL

LOWERING STATTEN DRUGS TO THEIR

PATIENTS WITH IT.

SINATRA SAID ONLY A SMALL

PERCENTAGE NEED THE DRUG.

HE PRESCRIBES STATTENS TO MIDDLE

AGED MEN LIKE ALBERT TAZ.

SINATRA SAYS A SMALL PERCENTAGE

OF WOMEN CAN BENEFIT FROM

STATTENS AS ANTIINFLAMMATORY,

NOT TO LOWER CHOLESTEROL.

THE RISKS OUTWEIGH THE GAINS.

SIDE EFFECTS OF STATTENS

GROSSLY UNDERREPORTED.

MUSCLE FATIGUE AND PAIN ARE

TWO COMPLAINTS.

DOCTOR, I CAN'T GET OUT OF A

CHAIR, I CAN'T WALK THE DOG.

THESE ARE STATTEN SIDE EFFECTS.

HOWEVER A LOT OF THE DOCTORS

THINK THEY ARE GETTING OLDER.

THESE ARE STATTEN SIDE EFFECTS.

PATIENTS OVER 70 ESPECIALLY

VULNERABLE.

THEY CAN'T REMEMBER NAMES OR

WHERE THEIR GLASSES AND KEYS

ARE.

THEY FORGET WHO THEY ARE.

IT CAN BRING ON THE ON SET OF

ALZHEIMER'S BY 15 YEARS.

YOU HAVE TO BE CAUTIOUS WITH

STATINS.

ONE THING IS CERTAIN,

REDUCING INFLAMMATION IS GOOD

FOR YOUR HEART NO MATTER WHO YOU

ARE.

BEST WAY TO DO THAT IS CUT

BACK ON SUGAR.

CHOLESTEROL IS YOUR FRIEND.

SUGAR IS YOUR FOE.

IT IS THE ENEMY.

SUGAR DAMAGES ARTERIES,

INCREASES BLOOD PRESSURE AND

AGES YOUR ORGANS.

WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT SODA

AND CANDY BUT FOOD THAT TURNS

INTO SUGAR AS SOON AS YOU EAT

IT, REFINED CARBOHYDRATES LIKE

WHITE BREAD, PASTA AND RICE.

68-YEAR-OLD JOAN JACKSON IS

LIVING PROOF THAT A LOW SUGAR

DIET IMPROVED YOUR HEART.

AT ONE POINT SHE NEEDED A HEART

TRANSPLANT.

SHE WAS TAKEN OFF THE TRANSPLANT

LIST AFTER CHANGING HER DIET.

I FEEL GREAT.

I AM NOT SAYING I AM 16.

I FEEL LIKE I CAN DO ANYTHING I

WANT TO.

HER SECRET, GOOD OLD

FASHIONED SELF-CONTROL.

WE HAVE A TENDENCY OF SAYING

I WANT THAT LAST PIECE OF PIE.

I AM GOING TO HAVE THIS PIECE OF

CANDY.

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SAY NO.

DR. SINATRA DESCRIBES

HEALTHIEST PATIENTS AS THOSE WHO

AVOID SUGAR AND REFINED

CARBOHYDRATES AND FILL UP ON

FATS.

HE HIGHLY RECOMMENDS UNSATURATED

FATS LIKE NUTS, AVOCADOS, FISH

AND OLIVE OIL.

HE EVEN TOUTS SATURATED FATS

LIKE UNPROCESSED MEAT AND

COCONUT OIL.

COCONUT OIL IS A SATURATED

FAT.

IT PROTECTS YOU.

BUT STAY AWAY FROM TRANSFAT

WHICH IS MAN MADE AND ADDED TO

MOST PACKAGED FOODS.

I CALL TRANS FATS UNGUIDED

MISSILES.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE

INGREDIENTS IN YOUR FOOD.

WORD HYDROGENATED IS YOUR RED

FLAG BECAUSE THAT MEANS

TRANSFAT.

WHILE DOCTORS MAY DISAGREE

WHETHER CHOLESTEROL CAUSES

HEARTED DISEASE, ONE THING IS

CERTAIN, IF YOU GO EASY ON SUGAR

AND TRANS FATS, YOU ARE HEADED

IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

BLESSING.
