JODIE HARRINGTON GETTIES IS

DIRECTOR OF CBN'S OPERATION

JODIE, TELL US ABOUT THE

DEVASTATION THAT IS OUT THERE.

LOT OF DAMAGE.

YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.

THAT IS SO IMPORTANT, JODIE,

ONCE AGAIN WITH OPERATION

BLESSING, THANKS FOR JOINING US,

STAY SAFE, JODI.

THANKS, SO MUCH, MARK.

OUR PRAYERS GO OUT TO THOSE

IN NORTH TEXAS.

WE ARE LEARNING MORE WHY THE

JURY CONVICTED ABORTIONIST

KERMIT GOSNELL OF FIRST DEGREE

MURDER.

MOST OF THEM THOUGHT THE CASE

CAME DOWN TO GREED.

GOSNELL ROUTINING PROVIDED

ABORTIONS EVEN IF IT MEANT

KILLING BABIES ALIVE.

THAT WAS QUOTE, BUSINESS AS

USUAL FOR GOSNELL.

THE HARDEST PART WAS LOOKING AT

THE PHOTOS OF THE DEAD BABIES

AND KNOWING THAT EVIL EXISTS IN

THE WORLD.

DISTURBING.

IN OTHER NEWS, PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS PLEDGING TO WORK WITH

CONGRESS TO PREVENT THE IRS FROM

ABUSING ITS POWER.

PRESIDENT IMMEDIATE THAT

STATEMENT IN A ROSE GARDEN.

STILL MANY TEA PARTY LEADERS AND

CONSERVATIVE LAWMAKERS ON

CAPITOL HILL ARE DEMANDING MORE

ANSWERS.

THEY ARE CALLING FOR

INVESTIGATION INTO THE WHITE

HOUSE TO SEE WHO KNEW THAT

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS WERE

SCRUTINIZED BY THE IRS.

THEY COMPARE TARGETING POLITICAL

GROUPS TO A POLITICAL WITCH

HUNT.

THIS IS EXTREMELY TROUBLING.

THE AX YUM IS, POWER TO TAX IS

POWER TO DESTROY.

THIS IS RUN AWAY GOVERNMENT

AT ITS WORST.

WHO KNOWS WHO THEY WILL TARGET

NEXT.

THIS IS AN ACT OF A POLITICAL

RULING CLASS IN WASHINGTON

TARGETING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

THINK ABOUT 'OBAMACARE'

IMPLEMENTED, 16,000 MORE ADDED

TO THE IRS.

ARE THEY NEXT DETERMINING WHO

CAN GET HEALTH CARE BASED ON

YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS?

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW AND

JUSTICE, REPRESENTING MANY

GROUPS STILL WAITING FOR

APPROVAL.

THEIR CLIENTS LOST MEMBERS,

DONATIONS AND MISSED THE

ELECTION CYCLE DUE TO IRS'S

TARGETING OF CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS.

MR. OBAMA IS ASKING FOR

CONGRESS FOR MORE MONEY TO

PROTECT U.S. EMBASSIES.

THEY RELEASED 94 PAGES OF

E-MAILS.

WHITE HOUSE AND STATE DEPARTMENT

WORK TO CHANGE THE TALKING

POINTS.

STATE DEPARTMENT TRIED TO AVOID

REFERENCES AND REPEATEDLY BLAMED

THE ADMINISTRATION FOR BLAMING

IT ON A YOUTUBE VIDEO RATHER

THAN TERRORISM.

ALL THESE SCANDALS COULD MEAN

THE END OF WHAT HAVE CALLED A

COZY RELATIONSHIP WITH THE MAIN

STREAM MEDIA.

DAVID BRODY HAS THAT STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

DAVID: AS THE SCANDALS PILE

UP, THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA IS

SLOWLY TURNING ON

ADMINISTRATION.

YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND AND

HEAR HOW IT SOUNDS LIKE THE

ADMINISTRATION MIGHT BE HIDING

SOMETHING.

DAVID: OR JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

IT IS CHILLING.

I GUESS THEY OWE US AN

EXPLANATION.

DAVID: EVEN HIS BIGGEST

SUPPORTERS, THIS IS CHRIS

MATTHEWS A YEAR AGO ON PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE IS

CLEAN AS A WHISTLE.

HE HAS NEVER DONE ANYTHING

WRONG, PERFECT FATHER, HUSBAND,

AMERICAN.

HE DOESN'T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT

THEM AND RUN THE UNITED STATES

GOVERNMENT.

WHY ISN'T HE ANGRY ABOUT WHAT

HAPPENED WITH THE IRS?

DAVID: IF YOU ARE THE

PRESIDENT THIS IS NOT A GOOD

SIGN.

NOW THE MEDIA IS COMING AROUND

ON WHAT HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI

AFTER DEATH OF AMERICAN

AMBASSADOR TO LIBYA CHRIS

STEVENS.

CHERYL SAT DOWN EXCLUSIVELY WITH

CBN NEWS.

MEDIA IS NOT ALWAYS

CONSISTENT IN THE VIGOR THEY USE

TO PURSUE A GIVEN TOPIC.

I THINK THE MEDIA DIDN'T USE

BENGHAZI CONSIDERING THE

IMPORTANCE OF THE ISSUE.

DAVID: ATKINS HAS DEFINITELY

RECEIVED PUSH BACK.

NEW THE WHITE HOUSE

PERSONALLY PUSHED ME BACK.

I AM USED TO THAT.

THAT IS THEIR JOB.

SOMETIMES THE HARDER THEY PUSH,

MAYBE I BELIEVE WE ARE MINING

FERTILE AREA.

DAVID: ATKINSON HAS APPLAUDED

BY CONSERVATIVE GROUPS.

DESPITE HAVING A TOUGH TIME

GETTING BENGHAZI STORIES ON

TELEVISION.

EVERY STORY YOU PRESENT BY A

BROADCAST, YOU HAVE TO GET THEM

INTERESTED IN IT.

IT HASN'T BEEN AN AT TI APPETITE

FOR BENGHAZI.

DAVID: THIS LEADS TO A

LARGEST QUESTION.

IS THERE A DISAPPOINTMENT?

THERE IS A HUGE DISAPPOINT.

DAVID: "WASHINGTON POST,"

DANA MILBANK SAID 100 DAYS INTO

SECOND TERM, PRESIDENT OBAMA

LAST CONTROL OF THE AGENDA IF HE

EVER HAD CONTROL IN THE FIRST

PLACE.

OBAMA'S LIFELESS SUBMISSIVE

ATTITUDE HAS HURT HIM.

IT IS ODDLY PASSIVE TO BE

RESIGNING HIMSELF TO THAT.

I'LL SEE WHAT THEY DO UP THERE.

ONLY SO MUCH I CAN DO.

ODD FOR HIM NOT TO BE, I THINK,

FIGHTING MORE FOR HIS AGENDA.

DAVID: ONLY FIGHTING THIS

PRESIDENT IS DOING IS FIGHTING

OFF SCANDAL AFTER SCANDAL.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

DZHOKHAR TSARNAEV PINNED A

NOTE INSIDE THE WALL OF THE

BOAT, APRIL 15TH ATTACK WAS IN

RETALIATION FOR MUSLIMS KILLED

BY U.S. FORCES IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

ALSO HE WOULD JOIN HIS OLDER

BROTHER SOON AS A MARTYR IN

PARADISE.

19 YEAR OLD IS BEING HELD AT A

PRISON MEDICAL CENTER OUTSIDE OF

BOSTON.

BIBLES REINSTATED IN GEORGIA

STATE PARKS AND CABINS.

THEY WERE REMOVED AFTER AN

ATHEIST GUEST COMPLAINED.

GEORGIA GOVERNOR NATHAN DEAL

ORDERED DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL

RESOURCES TO RETURN THE BIBLES.

IN A STATEMENT HE SAID NO LAWS

ARE BEING DONATED BECAUSE THE

BIBLES WERE DONATED BY OUTSIDE

GROUPS AND NOT BY THE STATE.

COMING UP, HEALTHIER LIVING

THROUGH TECHNOLOGY.

DIGITAL TOOLS AND TECH SAVVY

GEAR TO HELP YOU GET THE MOST

OUT OF YOUR WORKOUT.

WELCOME BACK THE SUN

UNLEASHED FOURTH MAJOR SOLAR

FLARE IN TWO DAYS.

IT MAY DEAL THE EARTH A GLANCING

BLOW ACCORDING TO SPACE WEATHER

EXPERTS CAUSING RADIO BLACKOUTS,

DISRUPTING SATELLITES AND GPS

SIGNALS AND IN EXTREME CASES

DISRUPTING POWER GRIDS.

SOLAR ACTIVITY FOLLOWS AN

11-YEAR-OLD CYCLE.

SCIENTISTS EXPECT IT TO PEAK

LATER THIS YEAR.

EARLIER THIS YEAR, ANGELINA

JOLIE UNDERWENT A DOUBLE

MASTECTOMY.

JOLIE SAYS SHE WILL UNDERGO MORE

SURGERY, THIS TIME TO REMOVE HER

OVARIES.

THE TWO CANCERS GO HAND IN HAND

AND CAUSED BY THE SAME ROGUE

GENE.

70% OF WOMEN ALSO OPT TO HAVE

OVARIES REMOVED TO DRAMATICALLY

REDUCE RISK OF CANCER.

IT HAS BEEN SAID YOU CAN'T

MEASURE WHAT YOU DON'T -- HOW

TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP US LOSE

WEIGHT.

REPORTER: UNFORTUNATELY MOST

OF US DO NOT KEEP TRACK OF

EXERCISE DETAIL LIKE HOW OFTEN

WE WORK OUT OR WHAT TYPE OF

EXERCISE WE DO AND FOR HOW LONG.

IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO RECORD

HOW HARD WE ARE WORKING SUCH AS

HOW MUCH WEIGHT WE ARE LIFTING

OR HOW FAST OUR HEARTS ARE

BEATING.

TOO OFTEN WE RELY ON OUR MEMORY

OF SUCH THINGS.

AS IT TURNS OUT OUR MEMORIES ARE

TOO BAD.

SOMETIMES WE TELL OURSELVES WE

ARE DOING BETTER WHEN WE ARE OR

DON'T RECOGNIZE WHEN WE NEED TO

KICK IT UP A NOTCH.

THANKS TO TECHNOLOGY, WE HAVE NO

EXCUSES.

FOR EXAMPLE, BRACELETS THAT

COUNT YOUR STEPS, MONITOR SLEEP

PATTERNS AND STORE ALL THE

INFORMATION IN AN APP.

SCALES THAT CAN TALK TO YOUR

SMART PHONE AND TELL IT YOUR

WEIGHT AND BODY MASS INDEX, YOU

CAN EVEN WEAR A WATCH THAT TELLS

YOU HOW MANY CALORIES AND APP TO

KEEP TRACK OF CALORIES HOW MANY

YOU EAT.

IT MOTIVATES YOU TO MAKE

PROGRESS.

NO WONDER DO YOU WONDER WHY

YOU ARE NOT SEEING THE RESULTS

YOU WANT.

YOU CAN IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM AND

MAKE ADJUSTMENTS.

THIS IS A TREMENDOUS

OPPORTUNITY THE US IF EVERYONE

USES SOME DEVICE TO GET FITTER.

WHEN YOU SEE HOW MUCH BETTER

YOU ARE NOW THAN YOU USED TO BE,

THERE IS NO BETTER MOTIVATION TO

KEEP IT UP.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, THE TRUTH UNLOCKED.

HOW TO REACH OUT TO MUSLIMS IN

YOUR

.

BOKO HARAM TERRORIST ARE

RESPONSIBLE FOR PENTECOSTAL

PASTOR.

THE CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION OF

NIGERIA NORTHEAST ZONE.

MARK LIPTO SAYS THE PASTOR WAS

KILLED TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

SOME MEN GOT INTO HIS HOUSE,

SHOT HIM DOWN.

CHRISTIANS BEING IN THAT

POSITION, HE MUST HAVE BEEN --.

HE SAYS THE PASTOR HAD

COLLEGE AGE CHILDREN AND ONE IN

SECONDARY SCHOOL.

HE ASK THAT CHRISTIANS PRAY FOR

PASTOR'S WIDOW AND CHILDREN AND

NIGERIAN CHRISTIANS LIVING UNDER

INTENSE PERSECUTION.

LISTEN TO GLOBAL LANE BLOG AT

CBN.COM.

BOSTON MARATHON TRAGEDY

CAUSED SOME TO FEAR MUSLIM

NEIGHBORS.

YES, IN DEED.

A NEW CHRISTIAN DVD IS TEACHING

CHRISTIANS ABOUT MUSLIMS.

GARY LANE REPORTS.

REPORTER: MOST MUSLIM

IMMIGRANTS COME TO NORTH AMERICA

FOR EDUCATIONAL AND ECONOMIC

OPPORTUNITIES.

OTHERS COME TO ESCAPE

OPPRESSION.

ON A RARE OCCASION, SOME LIKE

TSARNEAV BROTHERS HARM THE

NATION THAT HELPED THEM.

THIS IS MAN IS A FORMER MUSLIM

FROM SUDAN.

GOVERNMENT CAN ONLY DO SO MUCH

TO PROTECT US FROM ISLAMIC

FANATI

FANATICS.

A NEW TEACHING DVD SERIES CALLED

" TRUTH UNLOCKED."

IT IS GOING TO HELP OUR NATIONS,

OUR COUNTRY TO BE WELL EQUIP TO

DEAL WITH TERRORISM AND TO ALSO

DEAL WITH THE PEOPLE HERE THAT

WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF, THE

MUSLIM PEOPLE GOD BROUGHT TO

GIVE THEM THE GOSPEL RIGHT HERE.

IT PROVIDES UNDERSTANDING OF

RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.

TIM IS CO-PRODUCER OF "TRUTH

UNLOCKED."

.

I FELL ILL EQUIPPED.

THE TALK SHOW HOST APPEARED

ON THE "TRUST UNLOCKED"

DVD WHO SAYS WESTERNERS SHOULD

UNDERSTAND THE CULTURE.

A MAN AND WIFE WELCOMING A

COUPLE INTO THEIR HOME.

THE MAN OF THE HOUSE WOULD

EXTEND TO SHAKE THE HAND OF THE

WIFE.

INSTANTLY SHE IS OFFENDED.

SHE IS VEILED AND NOT SUPPOSED

TO BE SHAKING A MAN'S HAND.

RIGHT THERE HE BROKE A RULE.

IT TAKES A WHILE TO CORRECT

THESE THINGS.

TERROR ATTACKS LIKE BOSTON

MARATHON BOMBING MAY SHY PEOPLE

AWAY.

CHRISTIANS SHOULDN'T FEAR

SHARING FAITH BECAUSE MUSLIMS

HUNGER FOR A CLOSENESS TO GOD.

WHEN A CHRISTIAN SHOWS ME THE

GOD THEY LOVE, THAT IS AN EYE

OPENERING.

WHEN MUSLIMS ARE OFFERED FREEDOM

TO CHOOSE CHRIST, THEY DO.

CHRISTIANS DON'T HAVE TO READ

THE KORAN BEFORE WITNESSING TO

THEM.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO RELATE THE

GOSPEL TO THEM, THE MUSLIMS.

CHRISTIANS SHOULD TELL THE

TRUTH.

ASK THEM WHO IS THAT GOD YOU

ARE WORSHIPPING.

TELL THEM THE TRUTH, WE DON'T

WORSHIP THE SAME GOD.

LET ME TELL YOU WHY.

A FOLLOW UP DVD CALLED "FAR

FROM HOME, A DIFFERENT WEST"

WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE FUTURE.

ONE IS FOR JOE AVERAGE, OTHER

DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR A

MUSLIM.

IT IS A TOOL TO REACH MUSLIMS

AROUND THE GONE.

MOST EVANGELISM TOOLS CREATED

BY CHRISTIANS, THIS IS DONE BY

FORMER MUSLIMS WHO ARE NOW

CHRISTIANS.

NOW YOU HAVE A CONVERT, A

BELIEVER IN CHRIST FROM THE SAME

BACKGROUND WHO UNDERSTANDS WHO

THEY ARE GOING THROUGH, WE WENT

THROUGH IT.

ONE THAT QUESTIONS

CHRISTIANITY.

AS A MUSLIM, I WONDERED HOW

CAN GOD DEEP DOWN COME AS A MAN

TO EARTH?

WHY WOULD GOD WANT TO DO THAT?

PROBLEM RESOLVED WHEN I KNEW

GOD IS NOT STOOPING DOWN TO THE

LEVEL OF MEN.

GOD LOVES MEN.

IT IS MY NEIGHBOR, CO-WORKER,

CHILD'S SCHOOLMATE.

THEY ARE INDIVIDUALS WHO NEED

CHRIST AS MUCH AS ANYBODY ELSE.

A REVELATION REPLACING ACTS

LIKE THIS WITH MORE OF THIS.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

.

I LOVE THIS STORY, MOTHER IN

A PHILADELPHIA TRAIN STATION

JUMPS ON THE TRACKS TO SAVE HER

DAUGHTER.

THE STROLLER ROLLS OFF AND

FALLS ON THE TRACKS.

MOTHER LOOKS AWAY FOR JUST A

MOMENT AND STROLLER ROLLS AND

FALLS.

THE 14 MONTH OLD STILL STRAPPED

INSIDE.

IT TOOK SEVEN SECONDS.

THE MOTHER JUMPS TO THE RESCUE.

YOU CAN SEE A WOMAN PUSHING

EMERGENCY CALL BUTTON AS A

BYSTANDER JUMPS INTO ACTION

WHILE ANOTHER JUMPS ON THE

TRACKS TO HELP THE MOTHER.

YOU CAN ANTICIPATE IT.

THAT IS ONE OF OUR BUSIEST

LINES.

IN THIS CASE, YES THE STROLLER

WENT INTO WHEN THERE WERE NO

TRAINS RUNNING.

TODDLER ONLY SUFFERED CUTS TO

HER FOREHEAD, GOD KEPT THAT

TRAIN BACK ONE STATION AWAY.

THAT WAS A FALL, THAT WAS A

MIRACLE.

WE PRAISE GOD FOR THAT.

ALL SORTS OF MIRACLES,
