A MOMENT'S NOTICE.

U.S. HAS SOME 28,000 SOLDIERS

STATIONED AS WELL.

WE ARE NOT SCARE.

WE KNEW WE HAD TO MOVE AS CLOSE

AS POSSIBLE TO THE DMZ.

THE CHURCH HAS BEEN PRAYING

AROUND THE CLOCK IN RECENT

WEEKS.

NORTH KOREA HAS REPEATEDLY TO

TURN SEOUL, TOKYO AND WASHINGTON

INTO A SEA OF FIRE BY LAUNCHING

PRE-EMPTIC NUCLEAR ATTACKS.

WE SHOULD ALWAYS BE CONCERNED

WHEN SOMEONE IS THREATENING OUR

HOMELAND AND ALLIES.

IT IS CAUSING INSTABILITY IN THE

REGION

REPORTER: REGION HAS SENT

IN BOMBERS, STEALTH AIR DRAFT TO

THE REGION.

THEY COULD OUT CRAZY US.

YOU HAVE TO BE FIRM, ALSO CALM

REPORTER: INSTEAD OF

FOCUSSING ON NORTH KOREA CYCLES

OF BELLIGERENCE, PASTOR BAIK IS

CALLING US TO LOOK PAST THE

TACTICS.

THE TRUTH IS THEY ARE WEAK,

DESPERATELY POOR AND LED BY MEN

THAT WANT NOTHING MORE THAN TO

STAY IN POWER.

ON THE STREETS OF PYONGYANG,

TODAY NORTH KOREANS CELEBRATED

101 BIRTHDAY OF THE COUNTRY'S

LATE FOUNDER, KIM IL SUNG.

THOUSANDS ARE COMING TO BORDER

PLACING RIBBONS ON THEM.

REUNIFICATION BETWEEN THE TWO

KOREAS.

HERE NOT TOO FAR FROM DMZ,

THIS FAMILY SPENT THE AFTERNOON

PEERING INTO INCOME BINOCULARS.

I BRING MY KIDS HERE TO TELL

THEM WHAT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH

KOREA.

HOPEFULLY THEY WILL SEE THE

REUNIFICATION OF OUR TWO

COUNTRIES.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA.

IMMIGRATION OVERHAUL

LEGISLATION BY THE SO-CALLED

GANG OF EIGHT COULD BE UNVEILED

AS EARLY AS TOMORROW.

MEASURE PROVIDES 11 MILLION

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS A 13-YEAR

PATH TO CITIZENSHIP.

UNDOCUMENTED WORKERS WOULD HAVE

TO PAY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN

FINES.

MARCO RUBIO SAY IT IS PRO POE

SAL DOES NOT GRANT AMNESTY.

WE ARE ASKING FOR ACCESS TO

THE SAME LEGAL IMMIGRATION

PROCESS AVAILABLE TO EVERYBODY

ELSE IN EXCHANGE FOR ALL OF

THASHGS WE ARE GOING TO GET THE

TOUGHEST ENFORCEMENT MEASURES IN

THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY.

HE IS CONCERNED THE BILL

WOULD GIVE AMNESTY TO ILLEGAL

IMMIGRANTS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WON'T COMMENT

ON THE TRIAL OF PENNSYLVANIA

ABORTION DOCTOR KERMIT GOSNELL.

THE PRESIDENT CANNOT COMMENT

BECAUSE THE TRIAL IS ONGOING.

GOSNELL IS CHARGED WITH THE

MURDER OF ONE FEMALE PATIENT AND

SEVEN BABIES THAT WERE KILLED

WITH SCISSORS.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS BEING

SUED FOR OVERBILLING THE

GOVERNMENT BY MORE THAN 100

MILLION DOLLARS.

AMERICANS IS REPRESENTING VICTOR

GONZALES.

HIS LAWSUIT CLAIMS THE

ORGANIZATION IS GUILTY OF MORE

THAN 100 MILLION DOLLARS IN

OVERBILLING.

IT ALWAYS CLAIMS THE ILLEGAL

PRACTICE HAPPENS ROUTINELY.

FAMILY OF IMPRISONED PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI IS WORSENENING.

BEATINGS ARE GETTING WORSE.

HE IS BEING HELD THERE BASICALLY

BECAUSE OF HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

HIS WIFE NEGHMEH SAID WE NEED TO

SPEAK LOUDER UNTIL SAEED IS HOME

ON CHRISTIAN SOIL.

SHE AND ACLU ARE ASKING

CHRISTIANS TO PRAY AND SUPPORT

PASTOR SAEED.

YOU CAN GO TO CBN.COM.COM TO

FIND OUT WHAT YOU CAN DO.

AMERICA'S TAX BURDENS ARE A

-- 84% NEED HELP OF TAX

PROFESSIONALS TO FILE TAX

DOCUMENTS.

JUST IMAGINE THE COLLECTIVE

BUSINESS AND JOB GROWTH COULD BE

DONE ABSENT THAT BURDEN.

THE 70,000 PAGE TAX CODE

PUNISHES WORK, INVESTMENTS AND

ENTREPRENEURSHIP NEEDS TO BE

REFORMED.

SETON MOTELY IS WITH LESS

GOVERNMENT.

THEY SAY IT IS UNFAIR FOR SMALL

BUSINESSES, DO YOU AGREE?

IT IS A NIGHTMARE MESS.

MARK STEIN SAYS IT IS COME

MRIENING WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF

COMPLIANCE.

THE 70,000 PAGES AND REGULATING

BUSINESSES, PEOPLE THAT SAY THEY

ARE FOR SMALL BUSINESS CANNOT BE

FOR BIG GOVERNMENT.

AS EXPENSIVE AND DEBILITATING AS

THIS TAX CODE IS, THE BIGGER THE

COMPANY, THE BETTER THEY CAN

MANAGE TO DEAL WITH IT.

THE MORE MONEY AND TIME HE HAS

TO DEDICATE TO WASTE ON

COMPLYING WITH THOSE TAX CODES,

THE LESS TIME HE CAN DEVELOP HIS

BUSINESS AND HIRE MORE PEOPLE

AND GROW AND EVENTUALLY PAY

TAXES.

CONCLUSION IS EXACTLY RIGHT.

THINK OF THE WASTED MAN HOURS,

DOLLARS AND EFFORT COMPLYING

WITH THE TAX CODE WHEN IT CAN BE

BETTER SPENT HIRING MORE PEOPLE

AND CONTRIBUTE TO BETTERMENT OF

SOCIETY INSTEAD OF COMPLYING

WITH THE TAX CODE.

LET ALONE CUTTING A CHECK WHEN

YOU ARE FINALLY FINISHED

WRESTLING WITH IT.

THEY SAY THEY RECEIVE MORE

WHEN THEY LOWER TAXES, THAT

SEEMS CONTRADICTORY?

WHEN YOU LOWER TAXES, ANY

TIME THE PRICE OF SOMETHING GOES

UP, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE LESS

OF IT.

IF YOU ARE RAISING THE PRICE OF

DOING BUSINESS, YOU ARE GOING TO

HAVE LESS BUSINESS.

TAXES ARE THE COST OF DOING

BUSINESS WITH THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT.

IF YOU LOWER TAXES, YOU INCREASE

AND SPUR ECONOMIC ACTIVITY WHICH

INCREASES REVENUE TO TREASURY.

AS WE JUST DISCUSSED AND SPENT

LESS TIME COMPLYING, MORE TIME

BETTERI INING DELIVERY OF SERVICE TO

THE CUSTOMER, ECONOMY WOULD

EXPAND, AND THEREFORE END UP

PAYING MORE TAXES.

OKAY.

SETON MOTELY, THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US AND HELPING US TO SORT

THROUGH.

IT IS A MESS, NEED TO CLEAN

IT UP, THANKS.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

WE ARE NOT BLOOD THIRSTY.

OUR HAND IS EXTENDED IN PEACE TO

ALL PEOPLE AND ALL STATES NEAR

OVER THE GENERATION, ONLY A

FIERCE PROTECTION FORCE CAN

PROMISE WE WILL NOT BE HARMED.

REPORTER: WHETHER THE ENEMY

IS EGYPTIAN PHARAOH OR NUCLEAR

IRAN, PEOPLE OF ISRAEL ARE READY

TO STAND TOGETHER.

WE HAD A LOT OF STRESS.

WE KNEW HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT.

WE OUTLIVE PERIL.

WE OUTLIVE ALL THE WHAT YOU

CALL, TITANS OF RUSSIA.

OUTLIVE HITLER, OUTLIVE WHOEVER

REPORTER: CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS, JERUSALEM.

THANKS, CHRIS, IN VENEZUELA,

SUCCESSOR OF HUGO CHAVEZ HAS

DECLARED VICTORY BUT OPPONENT

DEMANDING A RECOUNT.

REPORTER: NICOLAS THE WINNER.

NARROWIST VICTORY SINCE 1968

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

CHALLENGER HENRIQUEZ IS CALLING

FOR A FULL REPOUND.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO RECOGNIZE

ANY WIN UNTIL IT IS RECOUNTED.

REPORTER: CROWDS OF PEOPLE

CHEERED AS MADURO IS ELECTED.

WE TRUST IN THE VENEZUELAN

PROCESS

REPORTER: CHAVEZ DIED LAST

MONTH AFTER A LONG BATTLE WITH

CANCER.

MADURO'S CAMPAIGN WAS UGLY.

THE MAIN MESSAGE WAS CHAVEZ

BROUGHT ONE OF THE MOST OIL RICH

NATIONS TO THE BRINK OF RUIN.

VENEZUELAN'S ECONOMY HAS BEEN IN

SHAMBLES AND FOOD SHORTAGES,

CRIME HAS SKYROCKETED.

HOMICIDE RATE TRIPLED AND CROCK

KUS IS ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS

CITIES IN THE WORLD.

SOME OF THE OIL MONEY USED

ALLEVIATE POVERTY, A LOT WAS

USED TO FURTHER CHAVEZ'S

ANTI-AMERICAN WAYS.

MANY HOPED FOR A RETURN TO FULL

DEMOCRACY IN THEIR HOMELAND.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CAB NEWS.

THEY ARE URGING THEIR

SUPPORTERS TO REFRAIN FROM

VIOLENCE OVER THE ELECTION

RESULTS.

UP NEXT THE FIGHT FOR THE

FAMILY, FRANCE BECOMES EUROPE'S

LATEST BATTLEGROUND OVER GAY

MARRIAGE.

FRANCE APPEARS TO BE THE NEXT

NATION LOOKING TO LEGALIZE GAY

MARRIAGE.

DESPITE OBJECTIONS FROM THE

CHURCH AND EVEN HOMOSEXUAL

GROUPS, SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT IS

PUSHING ITS TO REDEFINE THE

FAMILY.

DALE HURD REPORTS FROM PARIS

REPORTER: CHRISTIANS KNEEL

AND PRAY ASKING GOD TO DELIVER

FRANCE FROM A SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

BILL AMOUNTS TO A NEW LAW.

THE RIGHT OF SAME-SEX COUPLES TO

ADOPT CHILDREN.

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LEGALIZED IN

12 NATIONS SO FAR.

MOST IN THE WESTERN WORLD.

PARTIALLY LEGALIZED IN

ADDITIONAL THREE NATIONS

INCLUDING UNITED STATES.

FRANCE WILL BE NEXT.

ALL WE ARE ASKING FOR IS TO

HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS AS

EVERYBODY, RIGHT TO GET MARRIED

OR NOT.

I HAVE BEEN WITH MY BOYFRIEND

FOR THE LAST 20 YEARS, WE HAVE A

NORMAL LIFE.

WE HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS, WE PAY

OUR TAXES, RAISING A LITTLE GIRL

THE BEST WE CAN.

SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT WILL

DESTROY AND REDEFINE THE

TRADITIONAL INSTITUTION OF

MARRIAGE FOR THE BENEFIT OF A

RELATIVELY TINY PART OF THE

POPULATION AS IS THE CASE IN

MOST WESTERN NATIONS,

HOMOSEXUALS ACCOUNT FOR LESS

THAN 5% OF THE POPULATION.

SOME SEE IT AS A CYNICAL PLOY TO

USE WHAT IS A HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUE

TO DESTROY THE TRADITIONAL

FAMILY AND CHRISTIANITY.

IT IS OBVIOUS THE GOVERNMENT

HAS DECLARED WAR ON

CHRISTIANITY.

MARRIAGE IS BETWEEN A MAN AND

WOMAN.

IF TODAY WE DECIDE MARRIAGE IS

FOR GAYS, TOMORROW WE'LL HAVE

POLYGAMY.

THE GOVERNMENT IS USING

CHILDREN TO CARRY OUT ITS SOCIAL

REVELATION.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE MINISTER OF

EDUCATION SAID IN WRITING IS

THAT HAS BEEN SENT TO ALL

EDUCATION DIRECTORS, THAT THE

GOVERNMENT IS COMMITTED TO USE

THE YOUNG PEOPLE TO CHANGE THE

MENTALITIES.

CAN YOU IMAGINE?

IT IS ALMOST A WAR DECLARATION.

USE OUR CHILDREN TO CHANGE OUR

MINDS.

SOUNDS LIKE SOCIAL

REVOLUTION.

EXACTLY.

NEW A WIDELY HELD VIEW AMONG

ATHEIST IS IT IS UNNATURAL AND

HURT THE CHILDREN.

A FASCINATING COALITION OF

ATHEIST, CHRISTIANS AND

HOMOSEXUALS.

EMMANUEL COMP IS WITH THE GAY

GROUP HOMO SOX.

IT GOES TOO FAR IN THE SENSE

IT MAKES THE MAJORITY OF THE

POPULATION LIVE UNDER A LAW THAT

HAS BEEN KEPT FOR MINORITY WHICH

I DON'T CONSIDER FAIR.

WE HAVE TWO PARENTS OF DIFFERENT

SEX.

WHATEVER WE ARE HETEROSEXUAL OR

HOMOSEXUAL.

THERE CAN'T BE TWO PARENTS OF

THE SAME SEX.

IT IS NOT NATURAL.

PROTESTERS GATHERED IN PARIS

TO STAND AGAINST ANTISEXUAL

VIOLENCE.

VIOLENCE AGAINST HOMOSEXUALS IS

SAID TO HAVE TRIPLED.

SOME FEAR THE SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

LAW WILL BRING MORE ATTACKS FROM

FRANCE'S GROWING MUSLIM

POPULATION.

THEY DO NOT SUPPORT HOMOSEXUAL

COUPLES ADOPTING CHILDREN.

THE BILL IS ALMOST CERTAIN TO

BECOME LAW ANY WAY.

THESE PROTESTERS BELIEVE THE

FRANCE THEY KNEW THAT UPHELD

TRADITIONAL FAMILIES IS SLIPPING

AWAY.

AND IN DEED IT IS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS, PARIS.

UP NEXT, MUSIC TO A BABY'S

EARS.

HOW LIVE MUSIC AND LULLABIES CAN

ACTUALLY HELP PREMATURE INFANTS.

GOOD NEWS FOR PARENTS OF

PREMIES.

A NEW STUDY FINDS LIVE MUSIC

AND LULLABIES MAY HAVE POSITIVE

AFFECTS ON INFANTS.

RESEARCHERS FOUND LIVE MUSIC CAN

LOWER HEART RATES AND PROVIDE

SLEEP.

THEY STUDIES 222 PREMIES AND 11

DIFFERENT NEO NATAL UNITS.

THEY HAD LOWER HEART RATES

AND BUTTER SUCKING RATES.

WHEN PARENTS WERE SINGING TO

THEIR CHILDREN, BABIES FED

BETTER, BETTER SUCKING BEHAVIORS

AND PARENTS HAD LOWER LEVELS OF

ANXIETY AND STRESS.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."
