Lee: THE PRICE OF

EVERYTHING IS GOING UP, SO

HERE IS HOW TO MAKE YOUR

BILLS GO DOWN.

THE EXPERT FROM T.L.C.'S

EXTREME COUPONING PROVIDES

THE SIMPLE SKILLS THAT HAS

YOU SAVING THOUSANDS AND

HELPING OTHERS ALONG THE

WAY.

PLUS...THE SUPREMEIST WHO

DIDN'T JUST WEAR HIS HATE ON

HIS SLEEVES.

HE WORE IT ON HIS FACE.

OUR RACE WAS THE MASTER

RACE, YOU EITHER GET HARD OR

YOU DIE.

Pat: WELCOME, FOLKS, TO

THIS EDITION OF "THE 700

CLUB."

YOU KNOW, THEY'RE TALKING

ABOUT NUCLEAR WAR.

NETANYAHU SAYS THEY'VE JUST

ABOUT REACHED HIS RED LINE.

BIDEN SAYS WE'RE NOT GOING

TO JUST CONTAIN THEM.

WE'RE GOING TO STOP THEM.

AND WHAT WOULD A NUCLEAR

EXPLOSION DO?

IF YOU THINK OF JERUSALEM,

IT WOULD DESTROY JERUSALEM.

IT WOULD DESTROY TEL AVIV.

IT COULD VERY WELL DESTROY

NEW YORK CITY OR LONDON.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HORRIBLE

CONSEQUENCES.

THE THREAT OF NUCLEAR WAR IN

THE HANDS OF SOME MAD MEN IS

JUST BEYOND COMPREHENSION,

AND YET THAT'S WHAT WE'RE

FACING.

AND THE PRESIDENT SAYS THE

UNITED STATES ISN'T

BLUFFING.

IT WILL USE MILITARY FORCE

TO STOP IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM IF IT HAS TO.

Terry: BUT ISRAEL'S

PRIME MINISTER WARNS THAT

IRAN IS MOVING AHEAD AND

THAT TIME IS RUNNING SHORT

TO STOP IT FROM BUILDING

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: ONLY WEEKS

AHEAD OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

FIRST TRIP TO THE HOLY LAND,

THE WHITE HOUSE IS STRESSING

THE STRONG TIES BETWEEN THE

U.S. AND ISRAEL.F0

FROM THE MOMENT THEF0

PRESIDENT TOOK OFFICE, HE

HAS ACTED SWIFTLY ANDF8F0

DECISIVELY TO MAKE CLEAR TOF0

THE WHOLE WORLD AND TOF0F0

ISRAEL THAT EVEN ASF8

CIRCUMSTANCES HAVE CHANGED,F0

ONE THING HAS NOT: OUR DEEP

COMMITMENT TO THE SECURITY

OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

THAT HAS NOT CHANGED.

Reporter: BUT TENSION

IS RISING.

OVER IRAN'S NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

SPEAKING TO AMERICA'S

LARGEST PROISRAEL LOBBY,

VICE PRESIDENT JO JOSEPH8h8h

BIDEN PLEDGED TO INTERVENE

WITH IRAN'S NUCLEAR8l8h

PROGRAM.

OUR STRONG PREFERENCE,

THE WORLD'S PREFERENCE, IS8h

FOR A DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION.8h8h

SO WHILE THAT WINDOW IS

CLOSING, WE BELIEVE THAT8h8h

THERE IS STILL TIME AND8h8h

SPACE TO ACHIEVE THE8h8h

OUTCOME.

GOD FORBID THE NEED TO ACT8h

OCCURS, IT IS8h CRITICALLY

IMPORTANT FOR THE WHOLE8h8h

WORLD TO KNOW WE DID8h8h

EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER, WE8h8h

DID EVERYTHING THAT

REASONABLY COULD HAVE BEEN

EXPECTED TO AVOID ANY

CONFRONTATION.

Reporter: SPEAKING TO

THE GROUP BY SATELLITE,

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU PUSHED

BACK AGAINST U.S.

HESITATION.

DIPLOMACY HAS NOT

WORKED.

IRAN IGNORES ALL OF THESE

OFFERS.

IT IS RUNNING OUT THE

CLOCK.

IT IS STILL NOT CROSSED THE

RED LINE I DREW AT THE

UNITED NATIONS LAST

SEPTEMBER, BUT IRAN IS

GETTING CLOSER TO THAT RED

LINE.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, IF OBAMA HAD

DONE EVERYTHING HE COULD

HAVE DONE, HE WOULD HAVE

SUPPORTED THE PRO-DEMOCRACY

OF REVOLUTION THAT WAS

BEGINNING TO BUILD UP IN

THAT LAST ELECTION.

WHEN PEOPLE BY THE THOUSANDS

WERE TAKING TO THE STREETS,

AND HE DIDN'T OPEN HIS MOUTH

IN SUPPORT OF THEM.

TO SAY THAT HE HAS DONE

EVERYTHING HE COULD DO IS

NONSENSE.

WELL, BY THE WAY, YOU'VE

HEARD THAT MANTRA, I JUST

WANT TAXES THAT ARE FAIR.

I THINK THE RICH NEED TO PAY

THEIR FAIR SHARE.

WELL, GUESS WHAT?

A NEW STUDY SHOWS THAT

THEY'RE ALREADY PAYING

PLENTY.

LEE WEBB HAS THAT STORY FROM

THE CBN NEWS ROOM.

LEE?

Lee: HIGH INCOME

FAMILIES ARE PAYING SOME OF

THEIR BIGGEST TAX BILLS AT

THE FEDERAL LEVEL IN

DECADES, PAT.

EVEN WHILE THE REST OF THE

COUNTRY IS PAYING TAXES A

RECORD LOW RATES.

THE TAX POLICY CENTER

CONDUCTED A STUDY OF ALL

TAXES THAT FAMILIES HAVE TO

PAY.

THIS YEAR FAMILIES WITH

INCOMES IN THE TOP 20% WILL

PAY AN AVERAGE OF 27% IN

TAXES.

THE TOP ONE PERCENT WILL PAY

35.5%, AND THE AVERAGE

FAMILY IN THE BOTTOM 20%

WON'T PAY ANY FEDERAL

TAXES.

IN FACT, MANY WILL RECEIVE

PAYMENTS FROM THE

GOVERNMENT.

Pat: THAT'S ALL HE

KNOWS WHAT TO DO, THE MANTRA

OF CLASS WARFARE, LET'S

KNOCK DOWN THOSE OTHERS.

AND I BELIEVE IT WAS

PRESIDENT JEFFERSON WHO SAID

YOU'LL NOT ENHANCE THE

MATERIAL WELL-BEING OF THE

POOR BUYIN BY TAKING MONEY

AWAY FROM THE RICH.

IT IS TRUE, YOU WILL NOT

MAKE THEM ANY MORE

PROSPEROUS, BUT THAT'S WHAT

HIS CAMPAIGN IS.

AND THERE ARE ENOUGH FOOLS

IN THIS COUNTRY WHO BUY IT

AND LISTEN TO IT AND BELIEVE

IT.

BUT IT JUST ISN'T TRUE.

LEE?

Lee: CONSERVATIVES ARE

CRITICIZING PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S NOMINEE TO HEAD UP

THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

AGENT SEE.

GINA McCARTHY HAS

ADMINISTERED SOME OF THE

MOST CONTROVERSIAL RULES,

INCLUDING NEW REGULATIONS ON

NEW POWER PLANTS.

IF CONFIRMED, SHE WILL BE

PLACING MORE RULES IN THE

BOOKS.

CONSERVATIVES SAY THE E.P.A.

IS KILLING JOBS AND

UNDERMINING THE ENERGY

INDUSTRY.

AND IT'S SOMETHING YOU HAVE

BEEN SAYING FOR A LONG TIME,

PAT.

Pat: THEY'RE OUT OF

CONTROL.

THE E.P.A. IS ABSOLUTELY OUT

OF CONTROL.

IT IS EXTENDING WAY BEYOND

ANY MANDATE THAT CONGRESS

GAVE IT.

AND WHAT IT WANTS TO DO IS

KILL THE COAL INDUSTRY.

JUST KILL IT.

IT JUST WANTS TO DO AWAY

WITH IT.

AND THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT

CARBON TAXES AND WHATEVER IT

TAKES TO KILL COAL.

COAL IS THE BACKBONE OF OUR

POWER GRID.

IF WE STOP COAL-FIRED

PLANTS, THERE IS NOT ENOUGH

NATURAL GAS TO GO AROUND.

AND THERE CERTAINLY IS NOT

ENOUGH BIOMASS TO FEED THE

GREAT ELECTRIC GRID WE HAVE

IN THIS COUNTRY, BUT THAT'S

WHAT THEY WANT TO DO.

AND YOU LET THESE CRAZIES

GET IN CHARGE OF THINGS, AND

THEY'RE DOCTRINE THERE --

THEY AREN'T REASONABLE.

THEY'RE FANATICS.

THIS IS THEIR RELIGION.

THEIR RELIGION IS DESTROYING

ANYTHING THAT MATTER POLLUTE

THE ENVIRONMENT.

IT DOESN'T MATTER ABOUT THE

ECONOMIC WELL-BEING OF THE

COMMUNITY.

ALL WE CARE ABOUT IS

STOPPING PARTICULATE

EMISSIONS.

Lee: PAT, A LATE WINTER

STORM IS BARRELING THROUGH

THE HEARTLAND.

19 STATES, FROM MONTANA TO

VIRGINIA, ARE UNDER WINTER

WATCHES OR WARNINGS.

IN NORTH DAKOTA, PLOWS

CLEARED ROADS.

POOR VISIBILITY AND

HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS IN

COLORADO LED TO A

MULTI-PILEUP ON 7E.

70.

AND WASHINGTON, D.C. IS

BRACING FOR ITS BIGGEST

SNOWFALL IN TWO YEARS.

WE WHO TWO BIG BLIZZARDS

ALREADY.

IT HAS BEEN QUITE A BUSY

WINTER.

Lee: IT SURE HAS.

THE STORM WILL CONTINUE

THROUGH THE A APPALACHIAN

MOUNTAINS.

THE EPIC TV SERIES ABOUT THE

BIBLE IS DRAWING HUGE

RATINGS.

THE FIRST TWO-HOUR

INSTALLMENT PREMIERED ON

SUNDAY.

IT ATTRACTED 14.8 MILLION

VIEWERS.

FOUR MORE INSTALLMENTS OF

THE MINI SERIES WILL AIR

EACH SUNDAY NIGHT THIS

MONTH.

MARK BURNETT CO-PRODUCED

THIS SERIES WITH ROMA

DOWNEY, WHO WAS IN THE HIT

"TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL."

DID YOU WATCH THE FIRST

INSTALLMENT?

Pat: IT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

MARK BURNETT IS A GENIUS.

MY ONLY COMPLAINT WAS HE HAD

TOO MUCH KUNG FU FIGHTING.

THEY WOULDN'T BE WAIVING

THEIR HANDS, BUT JUST STRIKE

DONE THOSE IN SODOM.

Terry: HOPEFULLY IT

WILL ENCOURAGED TO READ THE

BIBLE.

I WAS DOING THAT AS I WAS

WATCHING.

LOOKING AT THE SEQUENCE THEY

WERE CHOOSING.

Pat: AND THE OTHER

PROBLEM IS YOU HAVE A

LIMITED SPACE.

YOU HAVE TO SHOW A CERTAIN

AMOUNT OF THINGS.

I THINK THE PRODUCER WAS

CONSTRAINED AS WELL AS TO

WHAT HE COULD SHOW.

HE HAD TO BE VERY

SELECTIVE.

AND HE CUT MAJOR CHUNKS OUT

AND PUT THEM TOGETHER.

BUT WHEN YOU'VE GOT RATINGS

LIKE THAT, WHO IS GOING TO

COMPLAIN.

HE IS AN ABSOLUTE TELEVISION

GENIUS, AND HIS WIFE IS A

VERY BEAUTIFUL, ATTRACTIVE

LADY, WHO APPARENTLY IS

DEEPLY COMMITTED TO HER

FAITH IN JESUS.

MY HATS OFF TO BOTH OF

THEM.

GOD BLESS THEM.

Lee: EXERCISING IN THE

EVENING MAY NO PREVENT YOU

FROM GETTING A GOOD NIGHT'S

SLEEP AFTER ALL.

BEFORE THEY SAID TO AVOID

EXERCISE AT NIGHT BECAUSE IT

COULD KEEP YOU AWAKE.

BUT THE STUDY SHOWS THAT

PEOPLE WHO EXERCISE IN THE

LAST FEW HOURS BEFORE

BEDTIME SLEEP JUST AS WELL

AS THOUGH WHO EXERCISE

EARLIER IN THE DAY.

ONLY 3% OF LATE-DAY

EXERCISERS SAID THAT SLEPT

WORSE.

PAT?

Pat: I'M NOT ONE OF

THOSE WHO IS OUT --

Terry: IN THE LAST FOUR

HOURS OF THE DAY.

Pat: NO WAY.

BUT I DO -- I'VE GOT THE

TOTAL GYM.

AND I HAVE A WEIGHT BENCH

AND ALL OF THAT STUFF.

AND IT IS JUST MARVELOUS.

THE TOTAL GYM IS A GREAT

INVENTION.

Terry: THERE ARE MANY

WONDERFUL MACHINES THAT ARE

PRETTY COMPACT THAT ALLOW

YOU TO WORK OUT EASILY IN

YOUR HOME TODAY.

THE GYM IS THE GATHERING

PLACE.

Pat: THE GATHERING

PLACE.

BUT YOU WASTE SO MUCH TIME.

AND YOU HAVE TO WEIGHT FOR

THE MACHINE YOU WANT TO

USE.

WHEREAS, YOU'VE GOT YOUR

TOTAL GYM, YOU CAN WHIP

THROUGH THAT BABY IN 10 OR

15 MINUTES.

DO YOU HAVE ONE?

Terry: I DO.

Pat: BLESS YOUR HEART,

AND YOU USE IT?

Terry: I DO.

Pat: GOOD!

Terry: COMING UP LATER,

YOU'LL MEET A MOM WHO

TYPICALLY BUYS $5,000 WORTH

OF GROCERIES A MONTH, WHILE

SPENDING ONLY $200.

YOU'LL FIND OUT WHAT SHE

DOES WITH ALL OF THOSE

LEFTOVERS LATER ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

FIRST, THE PRESIDENT HEADS

TO ISRAEL IN A FEW WEEKS

WITH A PEACE PLAN ON HIS

AGENDA.

ONE EXPERT TELLS US ABOUT

THE ROAD BLOCKS HE'LL FACE.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU WITH

US.

WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD THINGS

FOR YOU TODAY, AND ONE OF

THEM IS RIGHT NOW.

I'M SHOWING A PICTURE OF THE

HEAD OF THE P.L.A. -- THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

HAMAZ, AND THE PRIME

MINISTER OF ISRAEL BEING

HELD TOGETHER IN WHAT LOOKS

LIKE THE OVAL OFFICE BY

GEORGE BUSH.

THE GENTLEMAN WHO WAS BUSH'S

FOREIGN POLICY ADVISOR

DEALING WITH THE MIDDLE

EAST, UNDER SECRETARY OF THE

STATE DEPARTMENT, AND HE IS

ONE OF THE MOST

KNOWLEDGEABLE PEOPLE IN

AMERICA CONCERNING THIS

SITUATION.

AND HE IS HERE WITH US RIGHT

NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

HIS BOOK CALLED "TESTED BY

ZION."

ELLIOT ABRAMS, WE'RE

DELIGHTED TO HAVE YOU WITH

US HERE ON "THE 700 CLUB."

THANK YOU.

IT IS A GREAT PLEASURE TO BE

WITH YOU AGAIN, PAT.

Pat: IN YOUR BOOK,

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE

OBSESSION WITH THE MIDDLE

EAST PEACE PROCESS, AND

YOU'RE SAYING THAT THE

ACTORS AND THE BIG PLAYERS

LOU THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE

EAST REALLY DON'T PUT THAT

NUMBER ONE ON THEIR AGENDA.

IS THAT A TRUE STATEMENT OF

WHAT YOU SAID?

IT IS A TRUE STATEMENT.

IF YOU TALK TO THE ISRAELIS

OR TO MOST OF THE ARABS,

WHAT THEY'RE WORRIED ABOUT

IS IRAN.

THE PEACE PROCESS IS OFF ON

THE SIDE.

THEY WONDER WHY WE OBSESS

ABOUT IT WHEN THEIR REAL

CONCERN IS IRAN.

Pat: AND SAID ALSO WHEN

OUR DIPLOMATES ARE WORKING

ON THIS AND THE POLITICIANS,

THEY SEEM MORE CONCERNED

ABOUT THE PROCESS AND MORE

CONCERNED ABOUT GETTING SOME

KIND OF SOMETHING ON A PIECE

OF PAPER THAN ACTUAL

PROGRESS ON THE GROUND.

TALK ABOUT THAT?

ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

EVERYBODY IS LOOKING FOR THE

GREAT HANDSHAKE ON THE WHITE

HOUSE LAWN, IT'S NOBEL PEACE

PRIZE, AND BIG INTERNATIONAL

CONFERENCES.

WHEN, REALLY, WHAT WE OUGHT

TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT IS

SECURITY AND PROSPERITY FOR

PEOPLE LIVING IN ISRAEL AND

LIVING EN THE PALESTINIAN

AREAS.

HOW CAN WE MAKE THEIR LIVES

BETTER?

HOW CAN WE HELP THEM GET

BETTER JOBS, MORE AUTONOMY

AUTONOMY?

INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON THE

PRAGMATIC THINGS, EVERYBODY

WANTS THAT GREAT CONFERENCE

IN THE SKY.

AND WE MISS A LOT OF

OPPORTUNITIES TO IMPROVE

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Pat: THIS PICTURE ON

YOUR COVER, YOUR BOOK SHOWS

AERIAL SHARON, BUT HE DID

SOMETHING THAT I THOUGHT WAS

A BIG MISTAKE WHEN HE GAVE

AWAY SOME LAND.

WHAT'S YOUR POINT OF VIEW?

VERY CONTROVERSIAL.

HE DID THAT AS A GENERAL,

THINKING 1500 ISRAELIS IN

THE MIDDLE OF A MILLION AND

A HALF PALESTINIANS WAS A

HUGE STRAIN ON THE ISRAEL

ARMY FOREVER.

MANY GENERALS THINK HIS REAL

MISTAKE WAS NOT IN GETTING

OUT OF THE SETTLEMENTS IN

GAZA, BUT IN GETTING OUT

WHAT IS CALLED THE

PHILADELPHIA STRIP, THAT

DIVIDES GAZA FROM SINAI

BECAUSE THAT'S THE GROUP

THAT ALL OF THE WEAPONS COME

FROM IRAN TO HAMAS.

A LOT OF GENERALS THINK IF

HE KEPT THAT STRIP, HE WOULD

HAVE BEEN PROTECTING

ISRAEL'S SECURITY BETTER.

Pat: IT IS AMAZING,

HAMAS HAS MOVED INTO THAT

AREA, FILLED TO VACUUM, SO

TO SPEAK, AND THEY'RE

LAUNCHING MISSILES ON AN

ALMOST DAILY BASIS INTO

THOSE ISRAELI TERRITORIES.

THEY ARE.

AND THE ISRAELIS CALL THAT

GAZA HAMASTAN.

I THINK THE LESSON FOR

ISRAEL IS ON THE JORDAN AND

THE JORDAN VALLEY.

IF THEY EVER ABANDON THE

JORDAN RIVER AND THE JORDAN

VALLEY, YOU REALLY HAVE TO

WORRY ABOUT THEIR SECURITY.

AND I THINK A LOT OF THEM

BELIEVE THAT.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

FUTURE?

YOU KNOW, IT WAS PROPOSED

SOME TIME AGO THAT REALLY

THE OLD DAYS, THOSE

SO-CALLED PALESTINIANS HAD

JORDANIAN PASSPORTS, AND

MAYBE LETTING THAT PART OF

THE TERRITORY, THE WEST

BANK, COME ON CONTROL OF

JORDAN.

WOULD THAT BE A GOOD

SOLUTION?

YOU KNOW, AS YOU KNOW, AT

THE VERY END OF THE BOOK, I

SAY I THINK WE HAVE TO THINK

ABOUT THERE SOLUTION.

BECAUSE IF YOU EVER HAD AN

INDEPENDENT PALESTINIAN

STATE, IT IS NATURAL THEY

WOULD IMMEDIATELY TURN TO

JORDAN FOR POLITICS,

COMMERCIALLY, AND FOR AIR

TRAVEL, AND THE LINKS

BETWEEN THEM AND JORDAN

WOULD GROW AND GROW.

THE PALESTINIANS WOULD

REALLY NEED TO BE JORDANIAN

ARMYS FOR SECURITY.

IT IS NOT POPULAR TO TALK

ABOUT THAT, BUT I'M GLAD YOU

RAISED IT BECAUSE IT IS THE

NATURAL EVOLUTION.

AS ONE PALESTINIAN ONCE SAID

TO ME, WE NEED TO HAVE A

PALESTINIAN STATE FOR 15

MINUTES, ANYWAY.

Pat: THERE IS SO MUCH

CORRUPTION.

HOW ABOUT THE BROTHERHOOD?

THEY SET UP YASSER ARAFAT

AND THE P.L.O.

WHAT ABOUT THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITIES?

IT IS DESPERATELY CORRUPT,

ISN'T IT?

YEAH.

THERE WAS A DECREASE IN

CORRUPTION AFTER ARAFAT DIED

IN 2004.

IT HAS CLIMBED UP AGAIN.

IT IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM,

INCLUDING, FRANKLY, MAHMOUD

ABBAS, WHO'S PICTURE YOU

SHOWED ON THE COVER OF THE

BOOK.

HE AND HIS SONS ARE INVOLVED

IN A LOT OF THINGS THAT THEY

SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED IN.

THAT'S A HUGE PROBLEM FOR

LOOKING AHEAD FOR THE

PALESTINIANS.

THEY HAVE GOT TO FIND A WAY

TO WRING THAT OUT OF THE

SYSTEM.

Pat: I THINK ONE OF THE

THINGS YOU WERE TRYING TO

SHOW WAS HOW INVOLVED GEORGE

BUSH WAS IN THIS PROCESS.

IS THAT TRUE TO?

HE REALLY WAS DOING

EVERYTHING HE COULD TO BRING

ABOUT A PEACEFUL SOLUTION?

I'M GLAD YOU RAISED THAT

BECAUSE THERE IS A MYTH THAT

PRESIDENT BUSH WASN'T

INVOLVED AND WASN'T

INTERESTED.

I SHOW IN THE BOOK STORY BY

STORY, MEETING IN THE OVAL

OFFICE, AIR FORCE 1

TRAVEL -- HE WAS INVOLVED

JUST ABOUT EVERY DAY.

HE DIDN'T PUSH ISRAEL INTO A

PEACE AGREEMENT THAT THEY

DID NOT WANT BECAUSE HE

THOUGHT THAT WAS WRONG.

HE THOUGHT THE CONDITIONS

DIDN'T EXIST FOR IT.

AND HE TOLD THEM, I WILL

NEVER TRY TO CRAM THIS --

THAT WAS HIS WORD -- I WILL

NEVER TRY TO CRAM THIS DOWN

ON YOU.

BUT HE WAS INVOLVED IN

TRYING BECAUSE HE REALLY

CARED.

DEEP, DEEP IN HIS HEART, HE

CARED ABOUT THE FUTURE OF

ISRAEL.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU THINK

IS GOING TO HAPPEN?

MORSI HAS A REVOMI REVOLT

ON HIS HANDS IN EGYPT, AND

THE IRANIANS ARE ALMOST AT

THAT RED LINE NETANYAHU

TALKED ABOUT.

DO YOU SEE AN EXPLOSION OVER

THERE?

I CAN'T SEE A PEACEFUL

SOLUTION COMING OUT OF THIS

TROUBLED REGION, BUT MAYBE

I'M WRONG.

IT IS VERY HARD TO BE

OPTMISTIC ABOUT EGYPT.

WHERE I DON'T SEE THE SYSTEM

HOLDING.

I'M NOT AT ALL SURE THAT

THAT SYSTEM WON'T COLLAPSE

IN ANOTHER YEAR.

AND IRAN, YOU KNOW, ARE THE

ISRAELIS REALLY GOING TO PUT

THEIR FUTURE, THEIR LIVES,

THEIR CHILDREN'S LIVES, IN

THE HANDS OF MR. OBAMA AND

MR. BIDEN AND RISK

EVERYTHING ON THAT?

I DON'T THINK SO.

I THINK SOME TIME IN THE

NEXT YEAR, THEY'RE GOING TO

ACT AGAINST IRAN.

Pat: IT IS NOT A

PLEASANT PROSPECT, IS IT?

IT REALLY ISN'T.

AND IT'S WRONG.

IT'S WRONG IN THE SENSE

WE'RE THE GLOBAL POWER,

WE'RE THE SUPER POWER.

IF IRAN IS A THREAT TO THE

WORLD, AND HE IS, WE'RE THE

ONES WHO SHOULD ACT.

AND WE ARE INFINITELY

STRONGER THAN ISRAEL.

IT IS KIND OF DISGRACEFUL TO

LEAVE THIS GLOBAL PROBLEM IN

THE HANDS OF THIS SMALL

NATION.

BUT IF WE DO, I BELIEVE

THEY'LL TAKE THAT

RESPONSIBILITY, AND THEY'LL

SAVE THEMSELVES AND US.

Pat: THANK YOU FOR THE

WORK YOU'VE DONE.

WE REALLY APPRECIATE YOU.

THE BOOK IS CALLED "TESTED

BY ZION."

YOU'LL FIND IT VERY

INTERESTING, WRITTEN BY A

MAN WHO WAS THERE IN THOSE

NEGOTIATIONS.

FASCINATING.

Terry: LOTS TO WATCH IN

THE COMING YEARS.

Pat: OH!

I SAID AT THE BEGINNING,

THINK WHAT A NUKE WHAT DO,

AND AHMADINEJAD AND THOSE

MULLAHS, THEY ARE FANATICS.

AND THEY WOULDN'T MIND

INCINERATORING ISRAEL.

NOR WOULD THEY MIND TAKING

FIVE MILLION CASUALTIES --

Terry: THAT'S WHAT I

WAS GOING TO SAY, THEIR OWN

PEOPLE.

Pat: BECAUSE IT WILL

BRING IN THE MONEY.

THE MONEY WILL APPEAR AND

BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD.

THAT'S WHAT THEY BELIEVE.

WE'RE NOT GOING TO NEGOTIATE

THEM OUT OF THAT.

BUT THE PEOPLE IN

WASHINGTON, WHO SEEM TO HAVE

STARS IN THEIR EYES DON'T

UNDERSTAND FANATACISM.

A GREAT BOOK, "TESTED BY

ZION."

Terry: IF YOU DON'T

KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

BOBO AND OYVO, STAY TUNED

BECAUSE YOU'LL NEED THEM IF

YOU WANT TO SAVE MONEY.

BUT STILL AHEAD, A SKINHEAD

WHO INKED HIMSELF AND HEAR

WHY HE CAME CLEAN.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: THE U.K. DAILY

MAIL CALLED BRIAN WITNER ONE

OF AMERICA'S MOST VIOLENT

WHITE SUPREMACISTS.

BRIAN WORE THAT LABEL AS A

BADGE OF HONOR.

HIS FACE WAS A CANVAS FOR

HIS RACE AND EVEN HAD THE

WORD HATE TATTOOED ON

HIMSELF.

BRIAN'S EMOTION NEVER

WAVERED UNTIL HE FELL IN

LOVE FOR THE VERY FIRST

TIME.

MY NAME IS BRYAN

WHITENER, AND I'M A FORMER

NEONAZI SKINHEAD.

NOT ONLY DID HE CHANGE MY

PHYSICALLY, HE BROUGHT LOVE

INTO A WORLD OF HATE AND

VIOLENCE.

WHEN MY RELATIVE INTRODUCED

ME TO BEING A SKINHEAD, I

WAS 14.

WE WERE CALLED SOLDIERS OF

THE NEW RITE.

I WAS BEATEN UP A LOT

BECAUSE I WAS A SKINHEAD IN

A PREDOMINANTLY MEXICAN AREA

OF TOWN.

SO VIOLENCE WAS A VERY, VERY

COMMON THING, SO YOU GET

HARD OR YOU DIE.

THAT'S IT.

Reporter: BRYAN

WHITENER CAME FROM A BROKEN

HOME.

RAISED BY AN ALCOHOLIC

GRANDMOTHER, HE LEARNED FROM

AN EARLY AGE HE HAD TO TAKE

CARE OF HIMSELF.

SO I LEARNED HOW TO

HATE.

I STARTED GETTING TATTOOS AT

ABOUT 14, 15.

AND THE TATTOO THING WAS TO

SISIGNIFY THE TOUGH GUY

LOOK.

I GOT SWAT SWASTIKAS WHEN I

WAS LIKE 15 OR 16.

I KNEW THEY GOT ME IN FIST

FIGHTS QUITE OFTEN.

THAT'S WHY I PUT THEM ON MY

BODY.

THAT'S WHEN I DECIDED I

SHOULD PROBABLY KNOW WHAT

THEY'RE ABOUT, AND I STARTED

HITTING LIBRARIES.

THAT'S WHEN I STARTED

GETTING INTO THE POLITICS.

AND BEFORE IT WAS JUST TO

PISS PEOPLE OFF.

AND EVENTUALLY I THOUGHT

THAT WASN'T THE PLACE FOR ME

AND STARTED TRAVELLING

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

I MET MY FIRST HAMMER SKIN

OUT THERE, AND THEY WERE THE

BIGGEST, BADDEST.

THEY WERE ORGANIZED.

THEY WERE TOUGH.

EVERYTHING ANY SKINHEAD

WOULD WANT.

WHEN I GOT INTO THE HAMMER

KINS SKINS, A LOT OF THE

GUYS HAD FACIAL TATTOOS AND

THEIR HANDS DONE.

I HAD MY HANDS DONE, AND I

ENDED UP GETTING MY NECK

DONE.

JUST FOR THE SHOCK VALUE, IT

STARTED CREEPING UP ON TO MY

FACE.

WE WERE PRETTY OUT OF

CONTROL.

Reporter: WHEN THE GANG

DISINTEGRATED, BRIAN AND A

FEW STARTED A NEW GANG.

WE STARTED SPREADING LIKE

A DISEASE.

I WAS IN CHARGE OF GOING TO

DIFFERENT TOWNS IN INDIANA

AND SETTING UP CHAPTERS.

I WAS THE ENFORCER.

AS A SKINHEAD, MY THINKING

WAS THE WHITE RACE WAS THE

MASTER RACE.

AFTER MY FIRST DECADE, I

DIDN'T REALLY SEE IT THAT

WAY ANYMORE BECAUSE I JUST

KNEW SO MANY WHITE PEOPLE

THAT WERE SUCH SCUMBAGS, I

COULDN'T SAY EVERY WHITE

PERSON IS SO MUCH SUPERIOR

THAN EVERY BLACK PERSON WHEN

I'M SEEING THE COMPLETE

OPPOSITE.

I KIND OF REALIZED THE ONLY

THING I ACHIEVED IN MY LIFE

WAS A BUNCH OF SCARS, A

LEGAL RECORD, AND HALF WAY

SCLEROSIS OF THE LIVER.

THAT'S IT.

I HAVE ACHIEVED NOTHING ELSE

IN LIFE, NOTHING POSITIVE.

I LITERALLY WAS TRYING TO

DRINK MYSELF TO DEATH.

I WAS LOOKING FOR A WAY

OUT.

I WAS DONE.

I HAD GIVEN UP ON LIFE AND

EVERYTHING.

I WAS DONE.

I WAS SICK OF THE VIOLENCE,

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW ANY OTHER

WAY TO BE.

IF I WOULD HAVE TALKED TO

ANYBODY ABOUT THOSE

FEELINGS, THEY WOULD HAVE

CALLED ME A TRADER.

AND I WOULD HAVE BEEN

BRANDED AS SUCH AND PROBABLY

SHOT.

SO I BOTTLED IT UP AND

DRANK.

THAT'S ALL I DID.

Reporter: BRIAN WAS

DEPRESSED AND ON THE EDGE OF

SUICIDE.

THEN HE MET JULIE.

I JUST FELL IN LOVE WITH

HER.

AFTER WE GOT MARRIED, MY

FORMER GANG GOT REAL JEALOUS

OF THE FACT I GOT MARRIED

AND MOVED 10 HOURS AWAY

BECAUSE I WAS NO LONGER

AVAILABLE FOR THEIR

BUSINESS.

I STARTED WORKING FULL-TIME

CONSTANTLY TO PUT FOOD ON

THE TABLE.

RIGHT WHEN MY SON WAS BORN,

THE PRESIDENT ACTUALLY GAVE

ME AN ULTIMATUM, TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN THE GANG OR MY

FAMILY, AND SO I CHOSE MY

FAMILY.

AND THEY SAID, OKAY, THAT'S

FINE.

WE'LL GIVE YOU A PROPER

RETIREMENT, WHICH I DID.

Reporter: BUT IT WASN'T

THAT SIMPLE.

DEATH THREATS STARTED

IMMEDIATELY, AND THEY NEVER

STOPPED.

THEY WOULD CALL AT 3:00

IN THE MORNING AND TALK

ABOUT HOW THEY'RE GOING TO

KILL ME AND KILL THE KIDS.

FOR YEARS, JULIE AND I LIVED

LITERALLY ON RED ALERT.

WE WOULD TAKE TURNS STAYING

UP ALL NIGHT WITH BATS AND

STUFF.

IT WAS A MATTER OF WHEN, NOT

IF.

I'M A PRETTY TOUGH GUY.

I CAN HANDLE MYSELF PRETTY

WELL, BUT AGAINST SEVEN,

EIGHT GUYS, THERE IS NOTHING

I COULD DO.

BUT FOR SOME REASON, JULIE

PICKED UP A BIBLE.

THERE WAS THIS OLD GERMAN

BIBLE, AND SHE STARTED

THUMBING THROUGH IT AND

READING IT AND SHOWED ME A

COUPLE OF PRAYERS.

THE SERENITY PRAYER, AND I

STARTED SAYING THAT IN THE

MORNING TO CALM MYSELF.

WE WENT DOWN TO TENNESSEE

FOR CHRISTMAS ONE YEAR, AND

MY FATHER-IN-LAW -- TO GO

VISIT HIM FOR CHRISTMAS.

MY FATHER-IN-LAW TOOK US TO

HIS CHURCH, A SOUTHERN

BAPTIST CHURCH OUT THERE.

AND SOMETHING HAPPENED.

BUT THE THING WAS, JULIE

FELT THE SAME THING.

I THINK IT WAS ALMOST AT THE

SAME TIME.

SHE LOOKED AT ME, AND SHE

WAS LIKE, DID YOU FEEL

THAT?

AND I WAS, LIKE, YEAH.

WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING.

SO WE STARTED PRAYING AT

THAT POINT, AND PRAYING AND

PRAYING AND READING THE

BIBLE.

AND WE ACTUALLY MADE A

PROMISE TO GOD.

IF YOU HELP US GET OUT OF

THIS ALIVE, WE'LL GIVE OUR

LIVES TO YOU.

IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS, WE

WERE ABLE TO MOVE TO

TENNESSEE, AND WE DID.

AND THE FIRST THING WE DID

WAS PRAISE GOD BECAUSE THERE

WAS NO WAY I COULD HAVE DONE

IT BY MYSELF.

ONCE I WAS ABLE TO EXCEPT

JESUS IN MY LIFE, I WAS ABLE

TO SMILE AGAIN.

I WAS ABLE TO ENJOY A DAY.

I WAS ABLE TO BE POLITE AND

ENJOY LIFE.

TO ENJOY MY CHILDREN.

WHEN HE FILLED ME, IT

PATCHED THE HOLE THAT WAS

ALWAYS LEAKING.

IT HAS BEEN AMAZING.

IT HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY

AMAZING.

WELL, WHEN I CHANGED INSIDE,

WHEN MY SOUL CONCERN WAS MY

FAMILY AND IT WAS NO LONGER

ABOUT MY RACE OR ABOUT

VIOLENCE.

I HAD TO LOOK EVERY DAY IN

THE MIRROR AND LOOK AT THIS

THING I ACTUALLY MADE

MYSELF.

I GOT TO REALIZE JUST WHAT

KIND OF A MONSTER I WAS

ACTUALLY PROJECTING TO THE

OUTSIDE WORLD.

Reporter: WITH THE PAST

LINGERING ON HIS FACE,

BRIAN'S DESIRE TO LIVE A

NORMAL LIFE SEEMED

HOPELESS.

I WOULD GO OUT TO TRY TO

GET JOBS, AND NOBODY WOULD

TALK TO ME.

PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES

WERE ALWAYS A MESS.

IT WAS JUST AN ABSOLUTE

NIGHTMARE.

I STARTED LOOKING INTO LASER

REMOVAL, WHICH WAS WAY TOO

EXPENSIVE.

THERE WAS NO WAY I COULD

AFFORD IT.

I STARTED LOOKING AT MEANS

OF USING DERMAL ACIDS AND

BURNING THEM OFF MY SKIN.

Reporter: IN A

DESPERATE MOVE, JULIE

CONTACTED THE SOUTHERN

POVERTY LAW CENTER.

WITH THEIR HELP, THEY

LOCATED AN ANONYMOUS DONOR,

AND BRIAN BEGAN A PAINFUL

TWO-YEAR JOURNEY OF REMOVING

THE TATTOOS.

IT WAS ABSOLUTELY

AMAZING.

WE STARTED DOING LASER AT

VANDERBILT, AND THE DOCTOR

NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE ME

WALK THROUGH THE DOOR.

I HAD SO MUCH COVERAGE, HE

HAD NEVER, EVER TAKEN ON

SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

PHYSICALLY, IT WAS

INCREDIBLY PAINFUL.

IT TOOK ABOUT 23 TO 25

TREATMENTS, BUT EVERYTHING

THAT HAS HAPPENED HAS BEEN

LITERALLY A MIRACLE.

THE REMOVAL.

MY FAMILY IS SAFE.

WE ARE SAFE.

WE HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HOME.

AND I'M WORKING.

AND IT WASN'T MY DOING.

I DIDN'T DO ANY OF THIS.

I'M BARELY A HIGH SCHOOL

GRADUATE.

I'M NOT REALLY ANYTHING.

A FORMER STREET KID.

GOD HAS DONE JUST MIRACULOUS

THINGS IN MY LIFE.

AND NOW I CAN FINALLY GIVE

GLORY WHERE IT IS DUE.

I CAN FINALLY GIVE HIM THE

CREDIT.

Pat: THERE IS NOBODY

WHO HAS GOTTEN TOO FAR AWAY

FROM GOD.

YOU SEE A HATED, NAZI

SKINHEAD WHO'S LIFE WAS

BUILT ON HATE -- THE LOVE OF

GOD, THE LOVE OF GOD, THE

LOVE OF GOD, FOR GOD SO

LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE

HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT

WHO SO EVER BELIEVES IN HIM

SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE

EVERLASTING LIFE.

GOD DIDN'T SEND HIS SON INTO

THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE

WORLD, BUT THAT THE WORLD,

THROUGH HIM, MIGHT HAVE

LIFE.

AND I WANT TO TELL YOU TODAY

GOD DOES NOT WANT TO CONDEMN

YOU.

HE WANTS TO SAVE YOU.

HE WANTS TO BRING YOU INTO

HIS FAMILY.

HE WANTS YOU TO BE IN

HEAVEN, AND HE WANTS YOU TO

BE FILLED WITH JOY,

UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF

GLORY.

AND IF YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE A

NEW LIFE, TO START FRESH, I

WANT YOU TO DO A SIMPLE

THING.

I WANT TO YOU PRAY A

PRAYER.

YOU'RE THERE IN YOUR HOME,

YOUR HOTEL, WHEREVER YOU'RE

WATCHING THIS PROGRAM.

AND I WANT YOU TO PRAY A

SIMPLE PRAYER WITH ME.

AND I WANT YOU TO ASK GOD TO

COME AND TRANSFORM YOUR

LIFE.

AND IF YOU'LL SURRENDER TO

HIM, HE WILL SURRENDER

HEAVEN TO YOU.

SO I ASK YOU TO PRAY RIGHT

NOW.

YOU CAN PRAY SILENTLY, PRAY

OUT LOUD, PRAY ANY WAY YOU

WANT TO, BUT PRAY FROM YOUR

HEART THESE WORDS, ALL

RIGHT?

BOW YOUR HEAD.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT.

JESUS, YOU KNOW I'M A

SINNER, LORD.

YOU KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE.

YOU NO WHAT'S BEEN DONE TO

ME.

YOU KNOW THE STRUGGLE.

YOU KNOW THE BITTERNESS, THE

HATRED -- YOU KNOW ALL OF

THESE THINGS.

BUT, LORD, RIGHT NOW I COME

AS I AM TO THE FOOT OF YOUR

CROSS.

BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT YOU

DIED FOR SINNERS, AND YOU

DIED FOR ME.

AND SO, LORD JESUS, RIGHT

NOW I OPEN THE DOOR OF MY

HEART AND I SAY PLEASE COME

IN.

TAKE MY LIFE, LORD.

AND FROM THIS MOMENT ON I AM

YOURS.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THAT YOU'VE HEARD MY

PRAYER.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU'VE

COME INTO MY HEART.

NOW, FATHER, FOR THOSE WHO

PRAYED WITH ME, LET THE

POWER AND THE ANOINTING OF

THE SPIRIT OF GOD COME INTO

THEIR LIVES IN THIS MOMENT,

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, IT'S

AN IMPORTANT THING.

AND WHAT I WOULD LIKE YOU TO

DO IS TO CONFESS WHAT YOU'VE

DONE WITH YOUR MOUTH.

YOU NEED TO TELL SOMEBODY.

YOU NEED TO GET

ESTABLISHED.

IT HELPS YOU TO GET

ESTABLISHED, TO SAY I JUST

PRAYED.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

WE'VE GOT ON THE PHONES A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE, HUNDREDS

OF PEOPLE, WHO HAVE MADE THE

SAME DECISION YOU HAVE.

AND WE'RE NOT ASKING YOU TO

JOIN SOME KIND OF A CHURCH

OR TO BE PART OF ANYTHING,

EXCEPT TO BE PART OF JESUS.

IT WON'T COST YOU ANY

MONEY.

I'M GOING TO SEND YOU

SOMETHING FREE.

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

IN IT THERE IS A COMPACT

DISC, 73 MINUTES OF

TEACHING.

IT WILL TELL YOU WHAT HAS

JUST HAPPENED AND WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

"A NEW DAY," I'LL GIVE THIS

TO YOU FREE.

PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL A

TOLL-FREE NUMBER,

1-888-777-1999.

1-888-777-1999.

QUICKLY GO TO THE PHONE.

IF FOR ANY REASON THE PHONES

ARE BUSY, BE PATIENT.

THERE WILL BE SOMEBODY THERE

SHORTLY.

BUT I THINK THEY'RE

AVAILABLE NOW.

SO CALL NOW.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO CARES

ABOUT YOU.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, WHILE MANY

FAMILIES IN AMERICA HAVE A

FOOD PANTRY NEXT TO THEIR

KITCHEN, OUR NEXT GUEST HAS

A FOOD GARAGE.

SHE IS GOING TO TELL US HOW

SHE KEEPS IT STOCKED FOR

JUST A COUPLE OF BUCKS A

DAY.

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN NEWS

BREAK.

A FEDERAL JUDGE IN VERMONT

HAS SENTENCED A MENNONITE

PASTOR TO 27 MONTHS IN

PRISON.

HE WAS CONVICTED LAST SUMMER

COUNTRY, RATHER THAN SHARE

CUSTODY OF HER DAUGHTER WITH

HER FORMER LEAS LESBIAN

PARTNER.

LISA MILLER AND HER DAUGHTER

SHE IS THE CHILD'S

BIOLOGICAL MOTHER.

MILLER BECAME A BORN AGAIN

MILLER AND HER DAUGHTER ARE

BELIEVED TO BE HIDING IN

NICARAGUA.

THE PASTOR AND MS. MILLER

EIGHT FORMER DRUG

CHIEFS ARE CALLING ON THE

WHITE HOUSE TO SUE COLORADO

GOVERNMENT IS NOT MOVING

FAST ENOUGH TO REVERSE THE

MOVE.

MARIJUANA IS STILL ILLEGAL

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Terry: WHEN JOANNIE

MYERS WAS A SINGLE MOM, SHE

HAD NIGHTS WHERE SHE THAT TO

GO HUNGRY JUST SO SHE COULD

FEED HER KIDS.

OFTENTIMES SHE WENT TO

GROCERY STORE KNOWING SHE

HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN FOOD

OR HYGIENE PRODUCTS.

NOW SHE IS USING HER SKILLS

TO MAKE SURE OTHERS WON'T

STRUGGLE AS SHE ONCE DID.

Reporter: COUPONING

EXPERT JOANNIE SAYS YOU

SHOULD NEVER PAY FULL PRICE

FOR ANYTHING AGAIN.

SHE IS ONE OF THE STARS OF

THE LEARNING CHANNEL SHOW,

EXTREME COUPONING.

SHE STARTED USING COUPONS TO

MAKE ENDS MEET AFTER HER

HUSBAND LOST HER JOB FIVE

YEARS AGO.

SINCE THEN, SHE SAVED

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

BUT JOANNIE DOESN'T KEEP ALL

OF THE SAVINGS FOR HER AND

HER FAMILY.

SHE PRACTICES THE CONCEPT OF

HELPING OTHERS.

TODAY'S JOANNIE'S GARAGE

ACTUALLY SERVES AS A FOOD

PANTRY TO FEED THE HUNGRY.

IN HER BOOK, "EXTREME COP

PONG, COP -- "EXTREME

COUPONING," JOANNIE HELPS

LEARN HOW TO SAVE MONEY.

Terry: JOANNIE IS

HERE.

WELCOME.

YOU STARTED COUPONING OUT OF

NECESSITY.

TELL US ABOUT THAT TIME IN

YOUR LIFE?

I CRY, SORRY.

WE WENT THROUGH A REALLY

HARD TIME WHEN I COULDN'T

FEED MY KIDS.

AND WE HAD TO MAKE TOUGH

CHOICES.

ONCE I LEARNED HOW TO

COUPON --

Terry: HOW DO YOU LEARN

HOW TO DO THAT?

I HAD A FRIEND WHO SHOWED

ME TWO FRIEND THINGS THAT

ARE FREE, AND I'M AN

OVERACHIEVER.

FOR ME BECAME A MINISTRY

BECAUSE I WAS, LIKE, I CAN

HELP FEED HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.

Terry: GOD REALLY USED

THIS TO BIRTH SOMETHING IN

YOUR HEART.

YEAH.

Terry: ONCE YOU

FOLLOWED THE OPEN DOORS HE

GAVE YOU, BEGAN TO DO THIS

NOT JUST FOR YOURSELF, BUT

YOU DO HELP OTHER PEOPLE

WITH THIS.

THAT'S THE BIG PART FOR

ME.

PEOPLE SAY IT IS COUPONS,

AND I'M, LIKE, NO, IT'S

GOD.

Terry: HE HAS A SENSE

OF HUMOR.

IT OPENS UP SO MANY DOORS

FOR PEOPLE.

SO MANY PEOPLE WANT TO HELP

PEOPLE AND DON'T KNOW HOW

TO.

THROUGH THE USE OF COUPONS,

THE POWER OF COUPONS, WE CAN

FEED THE HUNGRY.

WE CAN HELP SO MANY.

Terry: YOU ARE DOING AN

AMAZING JOB WITH IT.

I WANT TO TALK WITH YOU

ABOUT HOW YOU DO THAT.

BUT ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS

THAT IS SO INTERESTING TO

ME, USUALLY WHEN SOMEBODY

HAS A GREAT IDEA THEY WANT

TO PROMOTE, THEY WIND UP

GOING TO A TELEVISION

PROGRAM, ASKING THEM WOULD

YOU CONSIDER ME?

IN YOUR CASE, EXTREME

COUPONING, ACTUALLY CAME TO

YOU.

HOW DID THAT WORK?

IT IS WEIRD.

WE HAD THE OPEN PANTRY IN

OUR GARAGE, AND WE'VE BEEN

FEEDING PEOPLE IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND SOME PEOPLE IN OUR

NEIGHBORHOOD TOLD THE SHOW.

AND THEY CALLED ME AND SAID

WILL BE ON THE SHOW?

AND I SAID WE HAD A COUPLE

OF STIPULATIONS, THE FIRST

IS MY FAITH, AND THE SECOND

WAS WE WANTED TO DONATE

100%.

AND THEY SAID, THAT'S FINE.

Terry: YOU HAVE A

SYSTEM.

YES.

Terry: REALLY IN LIFE,

THERE IS JUST KIND OF A

COMMON IDEA.

IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING,

YOU HAVE TO DO IT

INTENTIONALLY.

AND YOU HAVE DONE THAT.

TELL US ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE

HERE AND HOW PEOPLE CAN DO

THIS AFFECTIVELY.

ORGANIZATION IS THE

BIGGEST THING WITH

COUPONING.

IF YOU'RE NOT ORGANIZED --

Terry: I HAVE ABOUT 100

OF THESE IN THE BOTTOM OF MY

PURSE RIGHT NOW.

AND, SEE, NOW YOU'RE

GOING TO BE ORGANIZED.

I TELL EVERYBODY TO START

OUT WITH A BINDER.

THERE IS A SMALLER ONE AND A

LARGER ONE.

IF YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO

COUPON, I SAY GET A LARGER

ONE.

I LOOK THE ONES THAT HAVE

THE TWO SIDES SO YOU CAN USE

YOUR FOOD AND THEN YOUR

HYGIENIC AND THEN YOUR OTHER

STUFF ON THIS SIDE.

THE BIG THING TO START OUT

WITH YOU WANT TO GET

LABELS.

I SAY SPEND EXTRA MONEY FOR

THE BINDER.

THESE ARE PLASTIC LABELS SO

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO TEAR.

THE PAPER ONES ARE GOING TO

TEAR AS YOU'RE FLIPPING

THROUGH THEM.

ON THE LABELS, YOU'LL CAT

CATEGORIZE THE STUFF LIKE

REGISTER, FREEZER.

Terry: AND SO YOU CAN

FLIP THROUGH THIS AS YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH THE STORE.

AND PEOPLE CAN PRINT

THESE RIGHT OFF FROM MY

BLOG.

I'VE HAVE THEM ALREADY MADE

UP.

Terry: SHE'S DONE THE

WORK.

THE NEXT THING IS TO PUT

THE COUPONS IN.

THEY'RE BASEBALL CARD

INSERTS.

SO THE COUPONS FIT RIGHT

INSIDE OF THEM.

FOR THE BIGGER ONES, THE

PRINTABLE ONES, YOU'RE GOING

TO WANT THE CURRENCY.

SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO FOLD

THEM UP.

Terry: AND THEY ALL FIT

IN HERE.

EXACTLY.

THE OTHER GREAT THING IS THE

FULL SHEET ONES.

AND FOR THE FULL SHEET ONES,

YOU CAN PUT THE COUPON

POLICIES IN THEM.

BECAUSE A LOT OF THE STORES,

THE CLERKS DON'T KNOW THE

POLICIES ALL OF THE TIME.

THAT WAY YOU HAVE THE POLICY

AND CAN SHOW IT TO THEM.

THE OTHER THING, SOME PEOPLE

DON'T LIKE TO CLIP ALL OF

THEIR COUPONS.

THIS IS WHAT THE INSERTS ARE

GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

YOU CAN TELL THE DATE.

I PUT 2-10, AND YOU CAN PUT

THE WHOLE THING IN THERE.

Terry: WOW!

THAT'S A BIG ISSUE FOR ME

AND THAT'S WHY I 100 AT THE

BOTTOM OF MY PURSE.

I'M WELL-INTENTIONED, BUT I

NEVER REMEMBER TO DO IT.

ONE OF THE COMMON THINGS

PEOPLE SAY IS WHEN I COUPON

I BUY THINGS I DON'T REALLY

NEED BECAUSE THEY'RE ON

SALE.

HOW DO YOU KEEP FROM DOING

THAT?

I TELL PEOPLE, STICK TO

WHAT YOU WOULD NORMALLY

BUY.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE A COUPON

AND YOU'RE GOING TO SAVE

MONEY, IF YOU BUY IT, YOU'RE

NOT REALLY SAVING THING.

IF THERE ARE MONEY MAKERS

THAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET

PAID FOR AND YOU DON'T

PERSONALLY NEED IT YOURSELF,

DONATE IT.

I CHALLENGE EVERYBODY THE

FIVE ITEM CHALLENGE.

SOME OF THE ITEMS YOU'RE

GOING TO MAKE MONEY ON AND

SO YOU'RE GOING TO WALK OUT

OF THE STORE WITH MONEY TO

BUY YOUR MEAT AND

GROCERIES.

Terry: AND A LOT OF

CHURCHES HAVE KITCHENS AND

YOU'RE KEEPING THAT

STOCKED.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE

PEOPLE MAKE IN TRYING TO DO

THIS?

I THINK PEOPLE WANT TO

START OUT BIG RIGHT AWAY AND

THINK THEY CAN SAVE A LOT OF

MONEY.

I TELL EVERYBODY, IF YOU

SAVE $5 A WEEK, OVER A YEAR,

THAT'S $250.

ANY SAVINGS IS THAT, A

SAVINGS.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO SAVE

MONEY.

WE NEED TO BE GOOD STEWARDS

WITH OUR MONEY.

Terry: ESPECIALLY NOW.

WITH THE ECONOMY THE WAY IT

IS -- I DON'T KNOW ABOUT

YOUR HOUSE, BUT AT OUR

HOUSE, THE HOUSE IS FULL,

AND GROCERY EXPENSES ARE

TERRIFIC.

ESPECIALLY AS KIDS GET

OLDER, THEY CONSUME SO MUCH

FOOD.

I KNOW THIS HAS BECOME A

PASSION FOR YOU, AND NOW

YOU'RE HELPING OTHER PEOPLE

TO DO IT.

I HEAR YOUR STORY, AND HOW

GOD TAKES WHAT WAS A

NEGATIVE SITUATION IN YOUR

LIFE, AND NOT ONLY ANSWERS

YOUR PRAYER, BUT TURNS

AROUND TO BLESS OTHER

PEOPLE.

I DO.

I THINK HE USED THE MESS IN

MY LIFE TO MAKE THE

MESSAGE.

IT IS MY STORY, BUT IT IS

GOD'S STORY.

I CAN ENCOURAGE OTHER PEOPLE

AND SAY YOU MAY FEEL

HOPELESS RIGHT NOW, AND I

WAS 20 YEARS AGO, BUT GUESS

WHAT?

THROUGH CHRIST WE HAVE

HOPE.

AND THROUGH COUPONS, WE CAN

FEED PEOPLE.

IT IS FUN AND EXCITING AND

WE REALLY CAN IMPACT OUR

WORLD.

Terry: ALL OF THE

THINGS YOU'VE SHOWN US YOU

USE ARE AVAILABLE AT PLACES

LIKE OFFICEMAX, HOME

DEPOT --

ANY PLACE.

Terry: THIS LOOKS LIKE

ANY PLACE THAT SELLS SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

RIGHT.

AND I FELT SOME PEOPLE DON'T

WANT TO DO THE BINDERS.

AND I'M LOOK, COME TO MY

BLOG AND I'LL MAKE UP ONE

FOR YOU.

Terry: THIS LADY WILL

DO IT FOR YOU.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW SHE HAS

PUT IT ALL HERE.

IT IS JOANNIE'S BOOK, CALLED

"EXTREME COUPONING" LEARN

HOW TO BE A SAVVY SHOPPER

AND SAVE MONEY.

IT AIRS THURSDAY NIGHTS AT

8 P.M. ON DISCOVERY FIT AND

HEALTH CHANNEL.

YOU'LL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY

TO SEE HER.

GO TO IT FIRSTHAND, AND

SHE'LL INSPIRE YOU.

IT IS GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

WHAT A GREAT, GREAT IDEA, A

WAY TO HELP OTHERS AND HELP

YOURSELF AT THE SAME TIME.

Pat: I'LL TELL YOU, SHE

HAS GOT THE ANSWER IN

TODAY'S ECONOMY.

BOY, GOOD FOR HER.

COMING UP NEXT, ANOTHER

ROUND OF "BRING IT ON."

SHERRY SAYS, QUOTE,"MY

BROTHER WAS RAISED AS A

CHRISTIAN, BUT HAS BEEN A

DEVOTED MUSLIM FOR MOST OF

HIS LIFE.

AS A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN, WE

BOTH THINK THE OTHER WILL GO

TO HELL.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?"

WE'LL SCENES THAT QUESTION

AND MORE -- WE'LL ANSWER

THAT QUESTION AND MORE WHEN

WE BRING IT ON.

Terry: WELL, IT IS TIME

TO ANSWER SOME OF YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

PAT, SHERRY SAYS, "MY

BROTHER WAS RAISED AS A

CHRISTIAN BUT HAS BEEN A

DEVOTED MUSLIM FOR MOST OF

HIS ADULT LIFE.

I'M A DEVOUT CHRISTIAN.

HE HAS BEEN TO MECCA,

CHANGED HIS NAME, GOES TO

MOSQUE AND PRAYS DAILY.

HE BELIEVES HE HAS FOUND THE

TRUTH, AND I'M WORRIED ABOUT

HIM.

WE LOVE EACH OTHER.

HOW SHOULD I PRAY FOR HIM?"

Pat: WELL, THE BIBLE

SAYS IT IS NOT GOD'S WILL

THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, BUT

ALL SHOULD COME TO THE

KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.

WHAT YOU'RE ASKING IS HOW

SHOULD I PRAYER FOR MY

BROTHER TO FIND THE TRUTH.

Terry: YES.

Pat: I WOULD RECOMMEND

ONE THING: ASK HIM TO GO TO

THE IMAM AT THE CHURCH WHERE

HE WORSHIPS, AND ASK THAT

IMAM ONE QUESTION: DID

MOHAMMED EVER SAY FOR SURE

HE WAS GOING TO HEAVEN?

ASK HIM THAT QUESTION.

AND THE ANSWER WILL BE NO,

HE NEVER DID.

THE ONLY WAY TO GET TO

HEAVEN IS TO DIE IN JIHAD

AGAINST THE INFIDELS.

Terry: INTERESTINGLY

ENOUGH, SHE WOULD BE AN

INFIDEL ACCORDING TO THE

QURAN.

Pat: BUT HOPEFULLY THE

BROTHER WILL NOT TRY TO KILL

HIS SISTER.

BUT ASK THE IMAM THAT

QUESTION.

AND HOW DO YOU PRAY?

JUST, YOU KNOW, YOU MAY BIND

THE SPIRIT THAT HAS COME

UPON HIM, AND ASK GOD TO

GIVE HIM HIS LIGHT.

THAT'S ALL YOU CAN DO.

Terry: STEPHANIE SAYS,

"HI, PAT, I'M A

HOME-SCHOOLING MOM FROM

BEAUMONT, TEXAS.

AND MY KIDS AND I WATCH YOUR

SHOW EVERY DAY.

IT KEEPS US UP ON EVERY DAY

EVENTS.

THEIR AGES OF 18, 12, AND

11.

THEY GET SO EXCITED WHEN

"BRING IT ON STARTS," AND I

THOUGHT IT WOULD BE EXCITING

FOR THEM TO HEAR FROM YOU.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR

BEING A SPECIAL PART OF OUR

LIVES EVERY DAY.

Pat: I CAN SAY HI TO

THE VAUGHN CHILDREN.

THAT IS GREAT TO HAVE A

FAMILY THAT HOME-SCHOOLS.

THESE HOME-SCHOOLERS ARE

DOING SO WELL.

GOD BLESS YOU.

Terry: IT IS GREAT TO

UTILIZE THE NEWS OF THE DAY

TO DISCUSS CURRENT EVENTS

WITH YOUR KIDS.

BETTY SAYS, "I HAVE A

PROBLEM UNDERSTANDING

TITHING.

ARE WE OBLIGATED TO TITHE AS

BELIEVERS SET FREE BY

JESUS.

I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH

GIVING, BUT I HAVE THE A

PROBLEM WITH THE IDEA THAT

GOD, WHO PAID THE PRICE WITH

HIS SON, WOULD REQUIRE

TITHING.

IS THIS NOT FROWNED UPON BY

PAUL IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.

PAT, PLEASE HELP OUT.

I DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUT ON

GOD'S BLESSINGS BY NOT

TITHING.

PLEASE HELP."

Pat: WE HAVE BEEN

BOUGHT WITH A PRICE.

GOD OWNS US.

THAT MEANS HE OWNS

EVERYTHING WE'VE GOT.

HE OWNS OUR POSSESSIONS AND

HE OWNS OUR FAMILY --

EVERYTHING.

HE BOUGHT ME FROM SATAN.

BOUGHT ME FROM SIN.

AND TRANSLATED ME INTO THE

KINGDOM OF HIS SON.

SO 10% IS NOTHING.

IF YOU WANT A LITTLE MARK,

BUT, NO, WE'RE NOT UNDER ANY

SPECIFIC OBLIGATION.

BUT IF YOU WANT TO GO OLD

TESTAMENT, YOU TRY THREE

TITHES.

AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

ALLOWS YOU TO HAVE 50%.

SO YOU GIVE OUT OF THE LOVE

OF YOUR HEART TO THE LORD.

AND I THINK THE TITHE IN THE

OLD TESTAMENT SHOULD BE A

MINIMAL, MINIMAL AMOUNT.

BUT IT IS NOT JUST A TITHE

TO A SPECIFIC CONGREGATION.

IT IS A TITHE TO THE POOR.

IT IS A TITHE TO THE WORK OF

THE LORD AROUND THE WORLD.

WHEREVER HIS PRESENCE IS

MANIFESTED.

Terry: JODY SAYS, "IS

IT OKAY COULD WRITE LETTERS

TO GOD?

WILL HE HEAR THAT IF I WRITE

THEM INSTEAD OF SAYING THEM

OUTLOUD?"

Pat: GOD LOOKS AT YOUR

SPIRIT.

IT IS THE COMMUNION OF YOUR

SPIRIT WITH THE LORD.

IF YOU WANT TO WRITE A

LETTER TO GOD, WRITE A

LETTER TO GOD.

GOD IS A LOVING FATHER.

HE DOESN'T GET MAD AT YOU.

IF YOU WANT TO WRITE HIM A

LETTER, WRITE HIM A LETTER.

Terry: THAT'S ACTUALLY

A GREAT BEGINNING TO

JOURNALING, AND LISTENING TO

GOD'S VOICE.

Pat: AND YOU CAN WRITE

DOWN THE ANSWERS TO PRAYER.

IT'S YOUR SPIRIT.

WE WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND IN

TRUTH.

NOT ALL OF THESE RITUALS.

GOD IS NOT INTO RITUAL.

HE IS INTO SPIRITUAL

REALITY.

Terry: BRIAN SAYS, "I

HEARD A VERY WELL-KNOWN

PASTOR SAY IF YOU DON'T GO

TO CHURCH, ESPECIALLY IF

YOU'RE A CHRISTIAN, YOU

WON'T GO TO HEAVEN.

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE,

WE'RE SAVED BY GRACE.

I HAVE NO CAR AND NO WAY TO

GET TO CHURCH.

NOW I'M SCARED I WON'T GET

TO HEAVEN.

IS THIS TRUE?"

Pat: I THINK THAT

WELL-KNOWN PREACHER TO SPEND

THE TIME READING THE BIBLE.

IT IS NICE TO BE ABLE TO

ASSEMBLE WITH FELLOW

BELIEVERS, BUT THAT WILL

NEVER, IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR

FORM, BLOCK YOU FROM GOING

INTO HEAVEN.

BY GRACE YOU ARE SAVED.

IT IS A GIFT OF GOD.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

Terry: MANY PEOPLE WHO

ARE NOT ABLE TO GET OUT OF

THEIR HOME, WORSHIP WITH THE

TV OR RADIO.

THIS IS CHRISTINA, "I'VE

HEARD THE PHASE, SPIRITUAL

PRIDE.

CAN YOU DEFINE THE MEANING

OF SPIRITUAL PRIDE?"

Pat: I'M MORE HOLIER

THAN YOU.

I AM A WONDERFUL CHRISTIAN.

I HEARD PEOPLE BRAG ABOUT

HOW SPIRITUAL THEY ARE.

I HEARD A SINGER BRAGGING ON

HOW LUCKY GOD WAS TO HAVE

HIM --

Terry: REALLY?

Pat: WELL, THAT'S NOT

EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS SAYING,

BUT THAT'S SPIRITUAL PRIDE.

I CAN SPEAK IN TONGUES AND I

CAN INTERPRET AND PROPHESY

AND I'M BETTER THAN

SOMEBODY.

THAT'S PRIDE.

GOD FORBID THAT I SHOULD

BOAST, SAVING THE CROSS OF

JESUS CHRIST, MY GOD.

THERE IS ONLY ONE CAUSE FOR

BOASTING, AND THAT IS WE

BOAST IN JESUS, WHO DIED TO

SAVE OUR SINS.

AMEN.

Terry: AMEN.

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME WE'VE

GOT.

Pat: IS THAT THE END OF

OUR PROGRAM TODAY?

Terry: THAT'S IT.

Pat: WELL, THAT'S ALL.

BUT YOU JOIN US TOMORROW TO

HEAR WHY PEOPLE ARE FLOCKING

TO ISRAEL.

AND TODAY WE WILL LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS OF JESUS

FROM JOHN 5: "HE WHO HEARS

MY WORDS AND BELIEVES IN HIM

WHO SENT ME HAS EVERLASTING

LIFE."

FOR LEE AND TERRY AND ALL OF

US, THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
