TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

EGYPT ON THE EDGE, HOW THE

COUNTRY IS CRACKING DOWN ON

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

Mark: PLUS, WEBCAM

ABORTIONS IN IOWA.

THE FIGHT TO END THE

PRACTICE MAKES ITS WAY TO

THE STATE'S BOARD OF

MEDICINE.

Wendy: AND GOVERNMENT

OVERREACH IN THE GOLDEN

STATE.

A LOOK AT THE MEASURES

CAUSING SOME TO MOVE FROM

CALIFORNIA AND WHERE THEY'RE

MOVING TO.

ALL OF THIS AND MUCH MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN

EGYPT SEES SOME SET

BASKETBALL'S.

SETBACKS, I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

Mark: AND I'M MARK

MARTIN.

THEY ARRESTED MOST OF THE

GROUP'S TOP LEADERS AND

PLANNERS, BUT THE CRISIS IS

FAR FROM OVER.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

Reporter: SCENES LIKE

THIS OF CHURCHES BURNING

ACROSS EGYPT SHOULD HAVE

NEVER HAPPENED.

> AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL IS

ACCUSING SECURITY FORCES OF

A SHOCKING DERELICTION OF

DUTY IN PROTECTING

CHRISTIANS.

THE BACKLASH SHOULD HAVE

BEEN ANTICIPATED, AMNESTY

SAID IN A POLITICAL

STATEMENT.

BOTH THE EGYPTIAN

AUTHORITIES AND THE

LEADERSHIP OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD HAVE FAILED TO

STOP ATTACKS ON COPTIC

CHRISTIANS.

AT LEAST 60 CHURCHES WERE

DESTROYED, ALONG WITH

CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS, HOMES,

AND BUSINESSES.

TONIGHT THE STREETS OF CAIRO

ARE RELATIVELY CALM.

THE ARMY ESCALATED THEIR

CRACKDOWN ON THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD BY ARRESTING ITS

TOP SPIRITUAL ADVISOR,

MOHAMED BODIE FOR HIS

EXCITEMENT TO MURDER.

HE IS OF HUGE VALUE FOR

US.

WE ARE IN PAIN, BUT THE

BROTHERHOOD OPERATES AS A

COALITION ON ALL LEVELS OF

SOCIETY, AND HIS ARREST WILL

NOT AFFECT OUR OPERATIONS.

George: BUT IT HAS SO

FAR.

WITH THE BROTHERHOOD'S MOST

EXPERIENCED AND RESPECTED

LEADERS NOW BEHIND BARS.

THANK GOD THAT MOHAMED

HAS BEEN ARRESTED AND THE

GOVERNMENT SHOULD TAKE ALL

OF THE NECESSARY MEASURES

FOR THE BROTHERHOOD TO

STOP.

George: MEANWHILE, THE

WHITE HOUSE IS DISPUTING A

REPORT THAT THE U.S. HAS

ALREADY CUT MILITARY AID TO

EGYPT, SAYING EVENTS IN THE

COUNTRY AREN'T STILL

UNFOLDING.

THAT AID THAT WE HAVE

PROVIDED IN THE PAST, OR THE

AID THAT IS IN THE PIPELINE

TO PROVIDE MOVING FORWARD,

IS SOMETHING THAT IS UNDER

REVIEW.

George: AND IN A MOVE

THAT IS LIKELY TO IN FLAME

AN ALREADY VOLATILE

SITUATION, HOSNI MUBARAK,

THE FORMER EGYPTIAN

PRESIDENT, OVERTHROWN IN

2011, COULD BE A FREE MAN

WITHIN HOURS.

A COURT ACQUITTED HIM OF

CORRUPTION CHARGES, BUT HE

STILL FACES ALLEGATIONS OF

KILLING HUNDREDS OF

PROTESTORS DURING THE

UPRISING.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Mark: ALTHOUGH THE

WHITE HOUSE SAYS THEY HAVE

YET TO CUT AID TO EGYPT, THE

ADMINISTRATION HAS ANNOUNCED

A CABINET-LEVEL MEETING TO

DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY.

Wendy: OUR TERRORISM

ANALYST ERICK STAKELBECK IS

THE AUTHOR OF THE NEW BOOK

"THE BROTHERHOOD, AMERICA'S

NEXT GREAT ENEMY," AND HE

JOINS US FROM OUR

WASHINGTON, D.C. BUREAU FOR

MORE ON THE SITUATION IN

EGYPT.

ERIC, THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

HAS SEEN SOME SETBACKS IN

RECENT DAYS.

IS THERE AN END IN SIGHT FOR

THIS FIGHTING?

WENDY, UNFORTUNATELY, I

DO NOT THINK SO.

REMEMBER, THIS IS THE

ORIGINAL al-QAEDA

TERRORIST GROUP.

THEY SPAWNED OUT HAMAS AND

AL-QAEDA.

RIGHT NOW WITH ALL OF THE

MAYHEM IN EGYPT WE'RE SEEING

WITH THE CHURCHES BEING

BURNED TO THE GROUND BY THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND ITS

SUPPORTERS, WE ARE SEEING

THE TRUE FACE OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THAT MASK HAS FINALLY FALLEN

OUT, AND IT IS FULL-FLEDGED

JIHAD IN EGYPT RIGHT NOW ON

THE PART OF THE

BROTHERHOOD.

I DON'T THINK THEY'RE GOING

TO GO QUIETLY, WENDY.

I THINK WE HAVE A GOOD

CHANCE HERE OF CIVIL WAR, OR

IN THE VERY LEAST, SUSTAINED

CIVIL UNREST IN EGYPT.

AND I AM VERY WORRIED ABOUT

THE SUEZ CANAL, WHICH EGYPT

CONTROLS, AND WHICH 7% OF

THE WORLD'S OIL PASSES

THROUGH EVERY DAY.

IF THE RADICAL ALLIES TARGET

THAT, WE'LL ALL FEEL IT IN

OR POCKETBOOKS.

Wendy: WHY SHOULD

AMERICANS BE CONCERNED ABOUT

WHAT IS HAPPENING IN EGYPT?

THE EGYPT, SINAI

PENINSULA, THAT IS A LAWLESS

AREA.

al-QAEDA HAS A STRONG

PRESENCE THERE, AND THEY

HAVE BEEN LAUNCHING

CROSS-BORDER ATTACKS OUT OF

SINAI AGAINST ISRAEL.

IF THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY

CAN'T GET A HANDLE ON IT,

ISRAEL WILL ONLY STAND PAT

SO LONG.

IF ROCKETS ARE BEING

LAUNCHED, EVENTUALLY ISRAEL

WILL ACT, AND WHO KNOWS,

THAT CHAOS IN EGYPT COULD

SPILL OVER AND PULL ISRAEL

IN.

AND ALL OF US WILL FEEL IT,

PARTICULARLY THROUGH THE

GLOBAL ECONOMY.

Wendy: ERIC, A LOT OF

PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WAS THE

BROTHERHOOD RESPONSIBLE FOR

THOSE ATTACKS ON THE

CHURCHES IN EGYPT?

Reporter: THE

BROTHERHOOD WAS LOOKING FOR

AN OPPORTUNITY, WENDY, TO DO

THIS.

RIGHT NOW WE'RE SEEING A

GENOCIDE AGAINST CHRISTIANS

IN EGYPT.

AT LEAST AN ATTEMPTED

GENOCIDE BY THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

THEY WANT TO STAMP

CHRISTIANITY IN EGYPT OUT,

WENDY, FOR GOOD.

REMEMBER, THIS IS ONE OF THE

OLDEST CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES

IN THE WORLD IN EGYPT.

ACCORDING TO HISTORY, THE

APOSTLE MARK FOUNDED THAT

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY IN

EGYPT.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

BASICALLY HELPED TO DRIVE

OUT THE JEWS OF EGYPT.

THEY WANT TO REPLICATE THAT

WITH THE CHRISTIANS.

IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS TIME

RIGHT NOW FOR CHRISTIANS IN

EGYPT.

Wendy: THEY NEED OUR

PRAYERS FOR SURE.

ERIC, THANKS SO MUCH FOR

YOUR INSIGHTS.

FOR A LINK TO HIS NEW BOOK,

YOU CAN VISIT OUR WEBSITE,

cbnnews.com.

Mark: ISRAEL'S

COUNTER-TERRORISM BUREAU IS

WARNING OF A PLATO HIT

ISRAEL AND JEWISH TARGETS

WORLDWIDE IN THE COMING

WEEKS.

DOZENS OF COUNTRIES WERE

LISTED AS HAVING CONCRETE

INDICATIONS OF A TERRORIST

THREAT.

THERE IS A CONCERN TERROR

ACTS WILL BE TIMED TO

COINCIDE WITH RASHANDA AND

RO ROM KIPPUR.

THEY SAY EX-GOVERNMENT

OFFICIALS ARE PRIME TARGETS

FOR ASSASSINATION OR

KIDNAPPING.

A SECOND ROUND OF

ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE

TALKS TOOK PLACE.

CHIEF ISRAELI NEGOTIATOR

ZIPPY LIBBY SAYS HOLDING

NEGOTIATIONS WITHOUT MEDIA

COVERAGE IS MEANT TO BUILD

TRUST BETWEEN ISRAEL AND

PALESTINIAN.

JOHN KERRY RECENTLY BROUGHT

THE TWO SIDES BACK TO THE

TABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN

FIVE YEARS, MAKING A PROMISE

TO THEM TO KEEP A LOW

PROFILE.

Wendy: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO

ALLOW POLICE TO SEARCH YOUR

CELL PHONE RECORDS WITHOUT A

WARRANT.

THE "WASHINGTON POST"

REPORTS THAT THE WHITE HOUSE

WANTS THE U.S. SUPREME COURT

TO RULE SUCH SEARCHES ARE

CONSTITUTIONAL.

THE POLICE ALREADY HAVE THE

AUTHORITY TO GO THROUGH

BOOKS AND POCKETBOOKS, BUT

SMARTPHONES HAVE A LOT OF

PERSONAL INFORMATION.

Mark: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS USING A

CONTEST OFFERING CASH AND

PRIZES, TO TRY TO GET YOUNG

PEOPLE TO SIGN UP FOR

OBAMACARE.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND

HUMAN SERVICES TEAMED UP

WITH THE GROUP "YOUNG

INVINCIBLES" TO LAUNCH THE

ONLINE CONTEST.

THEY WANT PARTICIPANT TO PUT

TOGETHER VIDEOS TELLING

PEOPLE WHY THEY SHOULD SIGN

UP FOR OBAMACARE.

IT READS "THIS IS YOUR

CHANCE TO HELP YOUR FRIENDS

AND OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE LEARN

ABOUT THEIR NEW HEALTH

INSURANCE OPTIONS."

THE CONTEST OFFERS UP TO 100

PRIZES.

Wendy: THE STATE OF

IOWA MAY RESTRICT SO-CALLED

WEBCAM ABORTIONS.

OPPONENTS ARGUE THEY DO MORE

HARM THAN GOOD.

NOW THE BOARD OF MEDICINE IS

TAKING A CLOSER LOOK.

DAVID BRODY HAS THAT STORY

FROM DES MOINES.

Reporter: IOWA WAS THE

FIRST STATE IN THE COUNTRY

TO USE TELEMEDICINE

ABORTIONS.

CURRENTLY A WOMAN CAN WALK

IN A CLINIC, SIT IN FRONT OF

A CAMERA, AND CONSULT WITH A

DOCTOR.

HE WILL PUSH A

REMOTE-CONTROLLED BUTTON,

AND A DRAWER WILL POP UP,

AND THE GIRL WILL BE

INSTRUCTED TO TAKE OUT TWO

BOTTLES OF PILLS.

Reporter: THE WOMAN

TAKES THE FIRST SET OF PILLS

AT THE CLINIC, AND THE NEXT

SET IS TAKEN AT HOME

THROUGHOUT THE NEXT 24

HOURS.

THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE WEBCAM

ABORTION PROCESS, THE

PATIENT NEVER ONCE HAS TO BE

IN THE SAME ROOM AS A

DOCTOR.

BUT THAT SOON MAY CHANGE.

THE STATE OF IOWA'S BOARD

OF MEDICINE HAS INTENDED TO

PLACE INTO RULE THEY WILL NO

LONGER ADMINISTER THE

ABORTION PILLS TELEMEDICALLY

WITHOUT A DOCTOR PRESENT.

AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS

BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED

RISK IT HAS ON THE WOMAN.

Reporter: 14 MEMBERS OF

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY, AND

MORE THAN 20,000 IOWANS

PETITIONED THE STATE BOARD,

ASKING FOR A CHANGE IN THE

RULES WHEN IT COMES TO

WEBCAM ABORTIONS.

IF IT HAPPENS, IOWA WOULDN'T

BE THE FIRST STATE TO

RESTRICT THE USE OF THE

PROCEDURE.

11 OTHER STATES ALREADY

REQUIRE THAT A DOCTOR BE

PRESENT WHILE A CHEMICAL

ABORTION OF THIS KIND IS

PERFORMED.

THE ARGUMENT AGAINST THESE

TELEMEDICINE ABORTIONS IN

PLACES LIKE IOWA HAS BEEN

THAT FOR THE MOST PART, IF

YOU'RE IN BIG CITIES LIKE

DES MOINES, YOU DON'T REALLY

NEED THEM.

HOWEVER, IF YOU'RE IN RURAL

AREAS IN A PLACE LIKE IOWA,

THAT IS MUCH DIFFERENT

STORY.

TELEMEDICINE IN GENERAL

CAN BE VERY HELPFUL.

TO BE ABLE TO HELP TO

CONSULT A WOMAN OVER A VIDEO

FROM A RURAL COMMUNITY -- IT

CAN BE VERY HELPFUL.

BUT IT IS JUST NOT THE

STANDARD OF PRACTICE.

Reporter: AND WHEN A

PROCEDURE LIKE AN ABORTION

IS INVOLVED IN LONG-DISTANCE

MEDICINE OVER THE INTERNET,

PROBLEMS CAN COME UP.

BECAUSE WHEN YOU GO TO A

DOCTOR AND YOU HAVE

QUESTIONS, YES, THEY SAY

THEY HAVE SOMEBODY ON CALL

FOR THAT, BUT I RECEIVE

PHONE CALLS ON A REGULAR

BASIS COMPLAINING OF

BLEEDING, AND THEY DON'T

KNOW IF IT IS TOO MUCH.

PAIN -- JUST DIFFERENT SIDE

EFFECTS FROM THE ABORTION.

Reporter: PLANNED

PARENTHOOD OF THE HEARTLAND

HAS PERFORMED ABOUT 3,000

WEBCAM ABORTIONS SINCE

2008.

THEY SAY THE PUSH TO END THE

PRACTICE IS NOTHING MORE

THAN A POLITICAL GAME.

IN AN EDITORIAL IN THE DES

MOINES REGISTER, THE GROUP'S

PRESIDENT

WROTE, QUOTE,"DECISIONS ON

MEDICINE SHOULD BE BASED ON

SCIENCE, FACTS, AND SOUND

EVIDENCE, NOT ON OPINIONS OR

BELIEFS.

POLITICIZING THE IOWA BOARD

OF MEDICINE DESTROYS THE

CONCEPT AND INTEGRITY OF

HEALTH CARE AS WE KNOW IT.

EVEN SO, THE BOARD IS MOVING

FORWARD, LETTING IOWANS

WEIGH IN ON THE ISSUE."

THEY'LL HAVE THEIR CHANCE TO

SPEAK OUT AT PUBLIC HEARINGS

IN LATE AUGUST.

IN THE END, THE IOWA BOARD

OF MEDICINE WILL GET TO MAKE

THE FINAL DECISION ON THE

FUTURE OF TELEMEDICINE

ABORTIONS IN THE STATE.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, DES

MOINES, IOWA.

Wendy: AND THE IOWA

BOARD OF MEDICINE WILL HOLD

ITS PUBLIC HEARING ON THE

MATTER NEXT WEDNESDAY.

Mary: COMING

Mark: COMING UP, WE'LL

TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE

BIGGEST CONSUMER COMPLAINTS

IN THE COUNTRY.

Mark: AS KIDS ACROSS

THE COUNTRY HEAD BACK TO

SCHOOL THIS FALL, A GROWING

NUMBER OF TEACHERS ARE

HAVING TO BUY CLASSROOM

SUPPLIES WITH THEIR OWN

MONEY.

THIS COMES AS SCHOOL BUDGETS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE

SLASHED.

ACCORDING TO A RECENT SURVEY

FROM AN INSURANCE FIRM, 26%

OF THE TEACHERS WHO

PARTICIPATED SAY LAST YEAR

THEY SPENT AROUND $400 OF

THEIR OWN MONEY ON SCHOOL

SUPPLIES.

GENERAL ITEMS LIKE PAPER AND

PENS ARE AT THE TOP OF THE

LIST OF MATERIALS NOT

COVERED SUFFICIENTLY UNDER

SCHOOL BUDGETS.

FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY MATH AND

SCIENCE TOOLS AND READING

MATERIALS.

Wendy: ARE YOU AN

UNHAPPY CONSUMER?

IF FOE SO, YOU'RE NOT

ALONE.

THEY RECENTLY RELEASED THE

TOP TEN LIST OF CONSUMER

COMPLAINTS, AND AS CHARLENE

ISRAEL REPORTS, SOME

INDUSTRIES LISTED ARE REPEAT

OFFENDERS.

Reporter: MOST

COMPLAINTS CENTER AROUND

DECEPTIVE PRACTICES AND

FALSE PROMISES.

WHETHER IT IS HOUSEHOLD

GOODS THAT JUST DON'T DO THE

JOBS THEY PROMISED TO DO,

AND ONLINE BUSINESSES THAT

OFFER FREE PRODUCTS THAT

AREN'T FREE AT ALL.

AND DEPARTMENT STORES THAT

OFFER ITEMS AT ONE PRICE,

ONLY TO CHARGE ANOTHER.

THERE WAS A PURCHASE THAT

I MADE LAST WEEK WHERE THE

PRICE TAG WAS MARKED AT A

CERTAIN PRICE, WHEN I COME

TO CASH IT OUT, THEY'RE,

LIKE, IT'S NOT FOR THIS

PRICE.

AND I SAID, IT IS THIS

PRICE.

AREN'T YOU GOING TO GIVE IT

TO ME FOR THAT.

Reporter: THE WORST ON

THE LIST ARE AUTO DEALERS.

BUYERS REPORT BEING SUCKERED

INTO BUYING LEMONS, OR LURED

TO THE LOT, WITH THEM SAYING

THEY'LL GET A DEAL, ONLY TO

HAVE HIGHER TAXES.

IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS, I

RECEIVED A PROMOTION, A

PROMO IN THE MAIL SAYING IF

YOU COME IN, YOU'LL GET THIS

KIND OF DISCOUNT.

AND IT WAS JUST A BAIT AND

SWITCH.

THEY JUST GOT YOU THERE.

AND ALL OF THE PROMISES THEY

MADE THEY DIDN'T KEEP.

IT WAS JUST A HARD SALE ONCE

I GOT THERE.

Reporter: ANOTHER BIG

PROBLEM CONSUMERS REPORTED,

SHODDY QUALITY AND POOR

WORKMANSHIP, SUCH AS

HOUSEHOLD GOODS THAT BREAK

EASILY AND ARE DIFFICULT TO

GET REPAIRED.

HOME IMPROVEMENT AND

CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES

LANDED ON THE LIST FOR DOING

BAD WORK, AND EVEN FAILING

TO START OR FINISH JOBS ALL

TOGETHER.

AND MOVING AND

TRANSPORTATION COMPANIES

LANDED ON THE LIST AS

WELLMENT.

> WELL.

WE USED A MOVING COMPANY

THAT HAD A HIGH REPUTATION

IN THE AREA, AND THEY'RE

KNOWN.

WE GET OUR ITEMS, AND WE

HAVE A QUEEN FOUR-POSTER

BED, SOLID WOOD, THAT WAS

BROKEN BY THEM.

AND THEY DO NOTHING TO

REPAIR THEM.

Reporter: OTHER

CONSUMER GRIPES ON THE BIG

TEN LIST INCLUDE SERVICE AND

BILLING DISPUTES WITH PHONE,

CABLE, AND SATELLITE

COMPANIES.

AND CREDIT CARD COMPANIES

WITH POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE

IN RESOLVING BILLING

ERRORS.

AND PREDATORY LENDING AND

ABUSING DEBT PRACTICES.

AND EVEN LANDLORDS WHO

REFUSE TO FIX REPAIRS, OR

ENGAGE IN ILLEGAL EVICTION

PRACTICES.

AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO COME

RIGHT TO YOUR DOORSTEP TO

TRY AND SELL YOU THEIR

PRODUCTS.

I GET TIRED OF VINYL

SIDING COMPANIES ALWAYS

COMING AROUND, KNOCKING ON

YOUR DOOR, SOLICITING THEIR

BUSINESS ON A PRODUCT THAT

YOU HAVEN'T HAD TIME TO

RESEARCH OR DON'T WANT.

Reporter: EXPERTS SAY

THE KEY IS RESEARCH,

RESEARCH, RESEARCH.

KNOW EVERYTHING YOU CAN

ABOUT A COMPANY BEFORE

ACCEPTIN ACCEPTING THEIR

BUSINESS.

DON'T BE PRESSURED INTO

MAKING A DECISION.

GET ALL OF THE DETAILS

BEFORE YOU COMMIT, AND BE

SURE TO CHECK IT OUT IF YOU

HAVE ANY DOUBTS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Mark: UP NEXT, LEAVING

FOR THE LONE STAR STATE.

WHY SOME CALIFORNIANS ARE

CHOOSING TO MOVE TO TEXAS.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

SOME FOLKS IN CALIFORNIA ARE

PACKING UP AND HEADING OUT,

LEAVING THEIR HOMES IN THE

GOLDEN STATE TO RELOCATE TO

TEXAS.

Wendy: IN TONIGHT'S

FOCUS REPORT, PAUL STRAND

VISITS BOTH STATES TO FIND

OUT WHY SO MANY PEOPLE ARE

SAYING SO LONG TO CALIFORNIA

BUT HELLO TO THE LONE STAR

STATE.

Reporter: IT MAY BE A

STATE OF STUNNING BEAUTY AND

WONDERFUL WEATHER, BUT

PEOPLE ARE STILL LEAVING

CALIFORNIA IN DROVES.

LIFE-LONG RESIDENT SYLVIA

WILL SOON JOIN THEM.

IT BREAKS MY HEART

BECAUSE TO LIVE HERE IN

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, YOU CAN

BE AT THE BEACH IN AN HOUR,

AND YOU CAN BE UP SKIING IN

AN HOUR.

Reporter: THOSE

POSITIVES HAVEN'T STOPPED

SOME 3.5 MILLION RESIDENTS

DESERTING THE STATE IN THE

LAST 30 YEARS.

THE TOP REASONS: HIGH

BUSINESS TAXES AND HIGH

GOVERNMENT.

BELLTRAN WAS RECENTLY

DRIVING TO ARIZONA.

WERE YOU SAW ONE VAN

COMING INTO CALIFORNIA, AND

WE SAW PROBABLY A HALF DOZEN

VANS MOVING OUT.

VOTERS ARE VOTING IN A

SENSE WITH THEIR MOVIE

TRUCK.

Reporter: SHE CLAIMS

CALIFORNIA IS THE WORST OF

THE NANNY STATES.

THE LEGISLATORS IN

SACRAMENTO FEEL THEY KNOW

BETTER THAN THE PUBLIC HOW

YOU SHOULD BE RUNNING WITH

YOUR LIFE.

I COULDN'T DEAL WITH THAT.

I WANT TO LIVE IN A STATE

THAT RESPECTS MY FREEDOM.

Reporter: SHE STATE

LAWMAKERS INTRODUCE 2,000

LAWS A YEAR.

2,000 NEW LAWS THAT THE

LEGISLATORS BELIEVE THE

PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA SHOULD

ABIDE BY.

Reporter: AND SHE SAYS

THEY TREATED HER HORRIBLY.

IT WAS VERY NORMAL FOR ME

TO GO INTO THE CAPITAL

BUILDING ANDTIVIT AND

TESTIFY ON PRO-FAMILY

POLICIES AND BEING CALLED A

BIGOT.

Reporter: SHE SAYS SHE

WAS CONSTANTLY CONFRONTED BY

A HARSH, JUDGEMENTAL

ATTITUDE.

A VERY PROSECUTORIAL

MINDSET, AND I DON'T MEAN

JUST THE GOVERNMENT.

IF YOU BUY PLASTIC BAGS,

WE'RE GOING TO CALL THE

AUTHORITIES.

IF YOU GIVE YOUR CHILDREN

GLUTEN AND MILK, WE'RE GOING

TO CALL THE AUTHORITIES.

BUDDHIST, HINDU, WHATEVER,

YAY.

CHRISTIAN, BOO.

IF YOU'RE NOT RAISING

YOUR CHILDREN ACCORDING TO

THE WAY WE BELIEVE YOU

SHOULD, WE'LL TAKE YOUR

CHILDREN FROM YOU.

OUT THERE I FOUND IT TO

BE VERY OPPRESSIVE AND A

LITTLE SCARY.

BECAUSE FROM PROSECUTION

FLOWS PERSECUTION.

Reporter: IT IS THAT

KIND OF ATMOSPHERE THAT HAS

BELTRAN MOVING AS SOON AS

SHE AND HER HUSBAND CAN

RETIRE.

POSSIBLY TO THE LONE STAR

STATE.

CALIFORNIA IS LOSING A

LOT OF EMPLOYERS TO TEXAS.

I WANT TO GO SEE WHY.

Reporter: FORMER

CALIFORNIA LAW MAKER CHUCK

DEVOWR SAYS BECAUSE TEXAS IS

PRO-BUSINESS, WHILE

CALIFORNIA REGULATES THEM TO

DEATH.

THE AVERAGE SMALL

BUSINESS IN CALIFORNIA IS

HIT BY $134,000 A YEAR IN

COMPLIANCE COSTS, TO COMPLY

WITH THE REGULATIONS IN THE

STATE OF CALIFORNIA.

Reporter: DOZENS OF

COMPANIES ARE CONSIDERING

PACKING UP AND LEAVING.

EVEN AS WE'VE BEEN HERE IN

CALIFORNIA FOR A COUPLE OF

DAYS, WE'VE HEARD ABOUT MORE

BUSINESSES PULLING UP STAKES

RIGHT NOW.

WE FOUND ONE OF THOSE

BUSINESSES RIGHT HERE IN THE

SMALL TOWN OF SHINER, TEXAS,

OWNED BY JOHN HARINGTON.

A MAN WHO CALIFORNIA SO

INFURIATED, HE HAD TO

LEAVE.

HE WAS THE OWNER OF A GUN

BUSINESS.

A BUSINESS IS A NECESSARY

EVIL IN THE STATE OF

CALIFORNIA.

A GUN BUSINESS IS JUST PLAIN

EVIL.

AND A CHRISTIAN IN THE GUN

BUSINESS IS AN ENEMY OF THE

STATE, PRACTICALLY.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE

WAS OFTEN CHARACTERIZED AS

AN UNENLIGHTENED BARBARIAN.

I GET DEATH THREATS FROM

THE ENLIGHTENED ONES.

KILL YOURSELF WITH YOUR

GUN.

Reporter: HARINGTON

SAYS HE LOVES BEING BACK IN

HIS HOME STATE OF TEXAS,

WHERE IT IS PROGUN,

PRO-FREEDOM.

THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T

CREATE JOBS.

BARACK OBAMA DIDN'T CREATE

JOBS.

I DO.

GUYS LIKE ME DO.

AND TEXAS GETS THAT.

Reporter: IN JUST THIS

CENTURY, TEXAS HAS CREATED

MORE THAN A MILLION NEW

JOBS.

CALIFORNIA HAS LOST MORE

THAN HALF A MILLION.

FROM 2004 TO 2010, 680,000

PEOPLE MOVED FROM OTHER

STATES TO TEXAS.

A WHOPPING 185,000 OF THEM

CALIFORNIANS.

IT BETTER BE THE FUTURE

OF AMERICA BECAUSE I DON'T

SEE HOW THIS COUNTRY CAN

CONTINUE TO PROSPER IF IT

DOESN'T BECOME MORE LIKE

TEXAS AND LESS LIKE

CALIFORNIA.

WE CAME BACK TO TEXAS FOR

FREEDOM.

ONE WORD, FREEDOM.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS, PAUL.

UP NEXT, THE INCREDIBLE

STORY OF HOW A DOG AND HER

OWNER WERE REUNITED AFTER

YEARS APART.

Wendy: FOR MANY, PETS

ARE A VERY IMPORTANT MEMBER

OF THE FAMILY.

ONE INDIANA WOMAN FOUND THAT

OUT FIRSTHAND WHEN HER DOG

WAS STOLEN FIVE YEARS AGO.

Mark: NOW THANKS TO A

MICROCHIP, AND THE HELP OF

SOME VOLUNTEERS, SHE HAS

BEEN REUNITED WITH HER

FOUR-LEGGED FRIEND.

A FEW YEARS AGO, JEN GOT A

CALL SHE NEVER EXPECTED.

SOMEONE HAD TURNED HER DOG,

SASHA IN.

THE ROTTWEILER WAS SEVERAL

STATES AWAY, IN PHOENIX,

ARIZONA.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE SHE

HAS BEEN OR WHO SHE HAS BEEN

WITH, OR WHAT SHE HAS BEEN

THROUGH.

I HOPE WHOEVER HAD HER GAVE

HER IS GOOD LIFE.

I THOUGHT ABOUT HER ALL OF

THE TIME.

I WONDERED WHAT HAPPENED TO

HER.

IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF A

MIRACLE.

Mark: AFTER SHE WAS

TRACKED DOWN BY USING

SASHA'S MICROCHIP,

VOLUNTEERS HELPED REUNITE

HER WITH HER OWNER.

THEY DROVE FROM PHOENIX TO

INDIANA TO DROP SASHA OFF.

26 PEOPLE HELPED OUT.

FIVE YEARS IS A LONG TIME

FOR A DOG.

SHE HAD TO BE THINKING SHE

WOULD NEVER SEE THAT DOG

AGAIN.

Mark: IT IS A MIRACLE.

Wendy: TRULY IS A

MIRACLE.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT FOR

THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."

Mark: THANKS FOR

WATCHING.

HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.
