David: "THE

BRODY FILE" HEADS TO IOWA,

HASHTAG, ROAD TRIP, AND OUR

CAMERAS GET THE EXCLUSIVE OF

POLITICS EVANGELICAL STYLE.

PREACH THE WORD AND RALLY

THE REMNANT.

AND LEAVE THE OUTCOME TO

US.

David: PLUS,

ONE-ON-ONE WITH THE MAN OF

THE HOUR, TED CRUZ.

I THINK WE'RE AT THE EDGE

OF A PATTERN.

IF WE SEEK GOING IN, WE'RE

RICHINGIN RISK LOSING

THEM.

AND RAND PAUL TALKS

PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS AND

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE STATE

OF IOWA.

I GREW UP IN A TOWN OF

13,000.

David: "THE

BRODY FILE" IN THE

HEARTLAND, WE'RE IN IOWA,

AND WE'RE ON THE AIR ACROSS

AMERICA.

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO "THE BRODY

FILE."

ANOTHER EDITION, AND GUESS

WHERE WE ARE?

THAT'S RIGHT, WE'RE HERE IN

IOWA.

BELIEVE IT OR NOT.

AND GUESS WHAT, IT'S NOT

SNOWING.

THERE IS NOT TWO FEET OF

SNOW ON THE GROUND BECAUSE

IT IS BEAUTIFUL THIS TIME OF

YEAR.

AND I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU,

POLITICS HAS NOT BEEN LOST

ON IOWA AT ALL.

I KNOW, I KNOW, THE 2016

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TWO

YEARS OR SO AWAY, SO WHAT.

IT HAS ALREADY STARTED.

BELIEVE ME, WE HAVE VIDEO

LATER ON IN THE SHOW FROM

TED CRUZ AND RAND PAUL AND

LOTS OF PASTORS TALKING

ABOUT JUDEO CHRISTIAN VALUES

IN AMERICA.

ALL OF THAT LATER.

BUT, FIRST, SPIRITUAL

REVIVAL IN AMERICA.

LOOK, GAY MARRIAGE AND THE

SUPREME COURT, YOU KNOW WHAT

I'M SAYING.

THERE ARE A LOT OF FOLKS AND

EVANGELICALS IN THIS COUNTRY

VERY CONCERNED WITH THE

DIRECTION OF WHERE OUR

NATION IS GOING NEXT.

AND SO THAT LEADS TO THE

QUESTION OF SPIRITUAL

REVIVAL IN AMERICA.

THERE ARE A LOT OF FOLKS

THAT BELIEVE THA THAT'S THE

ONLY THING THAT IS GOING TO

SAVE THIS GREAT COUNTRY OF

OURS, AND WE BEGIN WITH THIS

REPORT.

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

David: HERE IS AN

EVANGELICAL RIDDLE: WHAT

COMBINES GOSPEL SINGING,

FIERY PREACHING --

GOD IS SAYING, WHOA!

David: -- POLITICAL

SPEECHES AND PRAYER FOR

POSSIBLE PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATES?

LORD, WE ARE ASKING FOR

WISDOM HERE TODAY.

YOU'LL BE WITH THE

SENATORS --

David: THE ANSWER IS

IOWA'S PASTORS AND PEWS

EVENT, A TWO-DAY GATHERING

FOR HUNDREDS OF PASTORS TO

HEAR THE IMPORTANCE OF

SPEAKING BOLDLY FROM THE

PULPIT ABOUT TODAY'S

CULTURAL ISSUES.

PREACH THE WORD AND RALLY

THE REMNANT, AND LEAVE THE

OUTCOME TO GOD.

David: THIS EVENT HAS

REACHED MORE THAN 10,000

PASTORS SINCE IT BEGAN

NEARLY A DECADE AGO.

IT WILL SOON SPREAD TO MORE

THAN A DOZEN OTHER STATES

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

BUT THE MAIN ORGANIZER IS

DAVID LANE.

IF THE LORD DOES IT,

WE'RE GOING TO TURN A

MIRACLE BACK TO HIM AND

REESTABLISH A CHRISTIAN

CULTURE.

David: AND THAT WILL

TAKE PASTORS HELPING TO

ORGANIZE THOSE IN THE PEWS.

LOOK AT THESE STARTLING

FIGURES.

IENEVENT ORGANIZERS SAY OF

THE ROUGHLY 65 TO 80 MILLION

EVANGELICALS IN THE UNITED

STATES, ONLY 50% ARE

REGISTERED TO VOTE.

AND ONLY HALF OF THOSE

REGISTERED SHOW UP ON

ELECTION DAY.

IF THEY DO NOT VOTE, THEY

ARE BETRAYING THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

David: THE WILKS

BROTHERS WORRY THAT

AMERICA'S DECLINING MORALS

WILL ESPECIALLY HURT THE

YOUNGER GENERATION, SO

THEY'RE USING THE RICHES

THAT THE LORD HAS BLESSED

THEM WITH TO BACK SPECIFIC

GOALS.

I THINK WE HAVE TO MAKE

PEOPLE AWARE, YOU KNOW, AND

BRING THE BIBLE BACK INTO

THE SCHOOL AND START

TEACHING OUR KIDS AT A

YOUNGER AGE.

THEY'RE BEING TAUGHT THE

OTHER IDEAS, THE GAY AGENDA,

EVERY DAY OUT IN THE WORLD.

David: AND MANY HERE

BELIEVE THAT THE CHURCH HAS

ALLOWED SECULARISM TO CREEP

INTO THEIR FLOCKS.

AND ANOTHER PART OF THE

PROBLEM, MANY PASTORS FEAR

THE I.R.S. WILL COME AFTER

THEIR TAX EXEMPT STATUS IF

THEY BRING POLITICS TO THEIR

PULPITS.

WE'RE NOT BEING THROWN TO

THE LIONS OR HAVING OUR

HEADS CHOPPED OFF.

WE'RE BEING COWARDS BECAUSE

WE WANT MONEY.

David: EVERYONE HERE

BELIEVES THAT BOLDNESS IS

NEEDED, INCLUDING TED CRUZ

AND RAND PAUL.

THE BOOK OF ISAIAH SAYS

MY PEOPLE PERISH FOR A LACK

OF KNOWLEDGE.

THE ONLY THING NECESSARY FOR

EVIL TO PREVAIL IS FOR GOOD

MEN TO DO NOTHING.

WE MUST DO SOMETHING THAT

OUR WORLD OFTEN TELLS US NOT

TO DO.

WE MUST SEEK GOD FOR OUR

REDEMPTION AND SALVATION.

David: AND THAT'S WHAT

THESE PASTORS PRAY FOR ABOVE

POLITICS, SPIRITUAL

REVIVAL.

GOD, WE'RE AGAIN IN NEED

OF ANOTHER GREAT AWAKENING.

David: THE FIRST GREAT

AWAKENING BEGAN IN THE

1700s.

IN THE FOLLOWING CENTURY, A

SECOND REVIVAL SAW LARGE

CAMP MEETING SPREAD LIKE

WILDFIRE.

IS THERE A THIRD GREAT

AWAKENING AROUND THE

CORNER?

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

WHO WANT IT TO HAPPEN.

I DON'T KNOW IF PEOPLE ARE

COMMITTED ENOUGH YET TO SEE

IT HAPPEN.

David: SOME OF THAT

DOUBT COULD BE DUE TO EVENTS

OVER THE LAST 50 YEARS THAT

HAVE TAKEN AIM OVER

CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLES.

EXAMPLE, 1963, PUBLIC SCHOOL

PRAYER, GONE.

THE LEGALIZATION OF ABORTION

A DECADE LATER.

AND NOW WHAT SEEMS LIKE THE

CULTURAL ACCEPTANCE OF

HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE.

AND THAT SERIOUS STUFF IS

NOT, ACCORDING TO THESE

PASTORS, GOING TO BE SOLVED

BY POLITICIANS.

THESE POLITICIANS AREN'T

GOOD AT MUCH.

BUT THEY'RE GOOD AT THIS:

SEEING WHICH WAY THE WIND IS

BLOWING.

WE NEED TO CHANGE THE

DIRECTION OF THE WIND.

David: AND THAT WIND

CAN ONLY COME FROM ABOVE.

MY GUESS IS, SERIOUSLY

SPEAKING, WE NEED MERCY, THE

MERCY OF GOD.

David: YOU KNOW, ONE

OF THE PEOPLE AT THAT

PASTORS AND PEWS EVENT HERE

IN IOWA WAS STEVE GATES.

HE IS A CONSERVATIVE RADIO

TALK SHOW HOST, EVANGELICAL

CONSERVATIVE RADIO TALK SHOW

HOST HERE IN DES MOINES,

IOWA.

BUT HE HAS A NATIONAL READY

SHOW.

HOWEVER, IN IOWA, THIS IS

REALLY WHERE HE MADE ALL OF

HIS HAY, SO TO SPEAK BECAUSE

HE HAS A LOT OF CLOUT.

THEY KIND OF CALL HIM THE

EVANGELICAL KING-MAKER

BECAUSE HE IS NOT ONLY

WELL-CONNECTED IN IOWA, BUT

HE, INDEED, HAS A PLATFORM

OF A THREE-HOUR RADIO SHOW

EVERY SINGLE DAY.

AND IF CANDIDATES WANT TO BE

SOMETHING OR SOMEONE IN

IOWA, THEY GO TO STEVE GATES

AND TRY TO GET HIS SUPPORT.

HERE IS SOME OF OUR

CONVERSATION FROM EARLIER.

WHAT IS YOUR SENSE ABOUT THE

BUZZ OUT HERE IN TERMS OF

WHO MIGHT BE A PLAYER OUT

HERE IN 2016?

I HAVE NEVER SEEN A

PHENOMENON LIKE TED CRUZ,

EVER.

I'M GOING TO BE 40 YEARS

OLD, AND I'M TRYING REALLY

HARD NOT TO THINK ABOUT

THAT.

SO I'M TOO YOUNG TO REMEMBER

RONALD REAGAN.

I CAN'T COMPARE IT TO THAT.

AND WE ALSO DIDN'T HAVE ALL

OF THE MEDIA IN 1976 AND

1980, LIKE WE HAVE TODAY.

BUT I HAVE NEVER SEEN

ANYTHING LIKE IT.

NOTHING THIS QUICKLY.

IT IS ALMOST LIKE IF WE GOT

TOGETHER IN A LAB AND WE --

MEANING THE CONSERVATIVE

BASE -- AND WE CONCOCTED IT,

WHAT WOULD WE WANT IN A

CANDIDATE?

IT IS LIKE TED CRUZ OPENS

HIS MOUTH AND THE BASE OF

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY COMES

OUT.

Reporter: HOW IMPORTANT

ARE EVANGELICALS TODAY

COMPARED TO YESTERDAY?

THE EVANGELICAL VOTE IS

STILL VERY IMPORTANT.

IT IS THE ROCK-SOLID CORE

BASE OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

YOU CAN KNOCK RICK SANTORUM

ALL YOU WANT, BUT HE GOT

TWICE AS MANY VOTES AS RAND

PAUL GOT.

I'M GUESSING A LOT OF THOSE

PEOPLE WERE EVANGELICALS.

BUT FOR EVANGELICALS GOING

FORWARD, ONE THING YOU'LL

HAVE TO COME TO GRIPS WITH,

WHEN YOU GET TO MY AGE AND

YOUNGER, THE NEXT GENERATION

OF EF CULLS WILL

EVANGELICALS WILL NOT BE

MOTIVATED TO VOTE REPUBLICAN

OUT OF THE LESSER OF TWO

EVILS.

THEY ARE VERY CYNICAL ABOUT

THE POLITICAL PROCESS.

THEY SIMPLY DO NOT CARE

ABOUT THAT.

WE'RE SEEING AN EMERGENCE OF

EVANGELICAL TEACHERS IN MY

AGE GROUP AND YOUNGER THAN

AROUND AMERICA WHO HAVE

PODCAST SUBSCRIBERS IN THE

MILLIONS, BUT DO NOT GET

INVOLVED IN POLITICS BECAUSE

THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE

TAINTED BY THE DECISIONS OF

THE PAST.

WHEN YOU GET INTO 2024, AND

2028, THE WAY THAT THE

EVANGELICAL BASE IS GOING TO

HAVE TO BE MOBILIZED WILL BE

DIFFERENT THAN IN 199 1998

AND 2002 AND 2006.

David: ONE GUY WHO HAS

SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN IOWA,

AND HE IS NOT EVEN FROM

IOWA, RICK SANTORUM.

YOU REMEMBER RICK.

WE SPENT SO MUCH TIME WITH

HIM ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL,

WE WERE LIKE IN FULL

STALKING MODE.

HE WAS BASICALLY RUNNING FOR

GOVERNOR OF IOWA BECAUSE HE

WON THE IOWA PRIMARY, AND

THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY HE WAS

GOING TO DO IT, BY SPENDING

SO MUCH TIME HERE.

WHAT IS IN STORE NEXT FOR

SANTORUM?

IS HE GOING TO RUN?

HE IS NOT REALLY SAYING AT

THIS POINT.

"THE BRODY FILE" REDICTS

PREDICTS HE WILL GET IN ON

THE RACE.

BASED ON THE FACT HE

FINISHED SECOND TO RAND PAUL

AND ROMNEY.

SO WE WILL SEE.

WHEN WE COME BACK, SPEAKING

ABOUT RAND PAUL AND TED

CRUZ, BOY OH, BOY WE HAVE A

CONVERSATION WITH THEM.

I WAS TALKING WITH THEM, BUT

IT IS A CONVERSATION YOU'LL

ENJOY.

RIGHT HERE IN IOWA, AS "THE

BRODY FILE" ROLLS ON FROM

THE HAWKEYE STATE.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO OUR

SPECIAL EDITION OF "THE

BRODY FILE" HERE IN IOWA.

WE ARE IN BEAUTIFUL PELA,

IOWA, ONE OF OUR FAVORITE

TOWNS HERE AND "THE BRODY

FILE."

THEY'VE GOT WINDMILLS AND

CAKES, AND SUGAR-FREE ITEMS,

AND "THE BRODY FILE" A BIG

FAN OF SUGAR-FREE ITEMS AS

WELL.

LET'S TALK ABOUT SOMETHING

MAYBE NOT SO SWEET, AND THIS

HAS TO DO WITH THE CHAIRMAN

OF THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

COMMITTEE.

HE HAS BEEN BLASTED,

BLASTED, I TELL YOU, BY

EVANGELICALS AND TEA PARTY

CONSERVATIVES.

THEY'RE NOT HAPPY WITH HIM

BECAUSE THEY THINK HE HAS

GONE ALL G.O.P.

ESTABLISHMENT ON THEM, THAT

IT IS ALL ABOUT WINNING

ELECTIONS FOR RINE AND THE

REPUBLICAN NATIONAL

COMMITTEE AND IT IS NOT

ABOUT PRINCIPLE.

WE RECENTLY HAD A CHANCE TO

TALK TO THE CHAIRMAN ABOUT

THOSE ISSUES.

I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT

THIS WAY FORWARD FOR THE

G.O.P.

YOU AND I HAVE TALKED ABOUT

THIS BEFORE, BUT WHEN YOU

USE THAT WORD -- YOU KNOW,

WE HAVE TO BE MORE TOLERANT

IN WHAT THE R.N.C. PUT OUT,

EVEN EVANGELICALS A START TO

GRAB THE EXCEDRIN BOTTLES

WHEN THEY HEAR TOLERANCE.

WHY DON'T YOU ADDRESS THIS

AND PUT EF CULLS AT

EVANGELICALS AT EASE OR CANú

YOU PUTú THEM AT EASE?

úú 100%.úú

FIRST OF ALL, I DON'T KNOW

IFúú I WOULD USE THE WORD

"TOLERANCE."

I DON'T REALLY CARE FORúú THATúú

WORD MYSELF.

I DON'T HAVE Aúú PROBLEM WITHúú

IT, BUT I THINK IT HASúú

ANOTHER MEETING POLITICALLYúú

THAT CAN GO THE OTHERúú

DIRECTION.

I HAPPEN TO BELIEVE THAT OURúú

PRINCIPLES ARE SOUND.

I DO BELIEVE, AND I STILLúú

WILL TELL YOU THAT OUR PARTYúú

BELIEVES THAT MARRIAGE ISúú

BETWEEN ONE MAN AND ONE

WOMAN.úú

OUR PARTY BELIEVES THAT LIFE

BEGINS AT CONCEPTION.

I THINKúú THOSE ARE

FOUNDATIONAL ISSUES THATúú

AREN'T GOING ANYWHERE.úú

BUT WHAT I HAVE SAID, WHICH

I DON'Túú THINK SHOULD BE

CONTROVERSY AT ALL, AND Iúú

WOULD THINK THAT CHRISTIANSúú

AND PASTORS AND EVERYONE IN

BETWEEN SHOULD AGREE THAT

OUR PRINCIPLES HAVE TO BE

DRAPED IN THE CONCEPTS OF

GRACE, LOVE, AND RESPECT.

AND THAT'S NOT CODE

LANGUAGE.

THAT IS THE NEW TESTAMENT.

SO I DON'T THINK THERE

SHOULD BE ANY PROBLEM WITH

THAT THINKING WITHIN OURú

PARTY.úú

AND THAT'S ALL I'VE SAID.úú

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU SAY, Iúú

THINK.úú

SOMETIMES OUR MOMS USED TOúú

TELL US, IT IS HOW YOU SAYúú

ITMENT I THINK THA IT.ú

AND I THINKú THAT IS THEúú

ISSUE.úú

AND, QUITE FRANKLY, I THINKúú

SOME OF THAT IS OVERBLOWN.

I'M HAPPY TO ADDRESS IT, BUT

CLEARLY MYSELF AND OUR

PARTIES HAVE NOT CHANGED ON

THOSE PRINCIPLES.

David: BY THE WAY, IN

A SEPARATE NAME NOTE, RINES

PREBUS, THAT'S A WHOLE OTHER

NAME.

WE NEED TO DO A SHOW ON THAT

NAME.

A BIG NAME MAKING NEWS

NATIONALLY, AND ESPECIALLY

HERE IN IOWA IS TED CRUZ.

YOU KNOW, HE HAS NOW BEEN TO

IOWA A FEW TIMES, AND DING,

DING, DING, IF YOU COME TO

IOWA, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT

MEANS.

YOU'RE NOT HERE FOR THE

CORN.

YOU'RE LITERALLY HERE TO

POTENTIALLY RUN FOR

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

WE HAD A CHANCE TO SIT DOWN

WITH TED CRUZ WHEN HE SPOKE

TO PASTORS, ABOUT 400 OR 500

OR SO PASTORS FROM IOWA

HERE.

AND IT WAS A REAL

INTERESTING CONVERSATION.

HAVE A LOOK.

SENATOR, THANKS FOR JOINING

US.

I APPRECIATE IT.

ABSOLUTELY.

David: WE'VE BEEN

HEARING A LOT OF TALK ABOUT

SPIRITUAL REVIVAL IN THIS

COUNTRY.

THESE PASTORS ARE DEAD

SERIOUS ABOUT IT.

WHAT IS YOUR SENSE ABOUT

THAT?

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT

SPIRITUAL REVIVAL IS NEEDED

IN THIS COUNTRY RIGHT NOW?

WITHOUT A DOUBT.

OUR COUNTRY IS FACING UNIQUE

CHALLENGES.

EVERYWHERE I GO PEOPLE ARE

REALLY AFRAID FOR THE FUTURE

OF OUR COUNTRY.

I THINK WE'RE AT THE EDGE OF

A PRECIPICE.

IF WE KEEP GOING DOWN THIS

PATH, WE'RE RISKING LOSING

OUR NATION, AND THE

INCREDIBLE OASIS OF

LIBILITY.

IF YOU THINK OF THE HISTORY

OF THIS COUNTRY, THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA IS UNIQUE

IN THE ANNALS OF THE WORLD.

WE WERE FOUNDED BY BRAVE MEN

AND WOMEN FROM ACROSS THE

WORLD WHO FLED RELIGIOUS

OPPRESSION, AND CAME HERE

SEEKING FREEDOM.

AND SEEKING TO ESTABLISH A

GOVERNMENT LIMITED BY A

CONSTITUTION, AS THOMAS

JEFFERSON PUT IT, AS CHAINS

TO BIND THE MISCHIEF OF

GOVERNMENT.

WHAT WE HAVE SEEN IN RECENT

YEARS IS AN EXPLOSION IN THE

POWER OF THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT OVER OUR DAILY

LIVES.

David: THAT IS TED

CRUZ.

WE ALSO TALKED TO SENATOR

RAND PAUL.

HE WAS ALSO HERE TO TALK TO

THESE PASTORS, TO MEET WITH

THESE IOWA PASTORS, AND

LET'S BE HONEST.

FORGET THE DIRTY LITTLE

SECRET, IT'S OUT.

YOU KNOW RAND PAUL IS RAWRG

FOR PRESIDENT.

RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT.

I KNOW THERE IS TALK ABOUT

YOU MAYBE RUNNING IN 2016,

AND YOU HAVE SHOWN OBVIOUSLY

SOME POTENTIAL SIGNS THERE,

AND YOU HAVE NOT BE

ASHAMED -- NOT ASHAMED.

NOT SHY.

NOT SHY ABOUT IT.

BUT MY QUESTION TO YOU IS:

HOW IMPORTANT IS IOWA IN

2016 AS COMPARED TO 2012,

2008?

ARE THINGS CHANGING OR DO

YOU THINK IOWA STILL HAS ITS

IMPORTANT?

I THINK IT WILL CONTINUE

TO DO SO.

I THINK IT WAS WISE HOW WE

DID SO.

I'M NOT SURE HOW LONG IT HAS

BEEN THIS WAY.

BUT AT LEAST IN THE

REPUBLICAN PRIMARY, WE START

IN SMALL STATES.

WE START IN IOWA.

WE START IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

WE HAVE SOUTH CAROLINA, AND

NEVADA, WHICH IS A SMALL

STATE.

SO THREE OF THE FIRST FOUR

ARE PRETTY SMALL STATES.

I THINK WHAT IS GOOD ABOUT

IT IS SIMPLY WHAT PEOPLE

SAY.

VOTERS WILL COME UP AND SAY,

I'M NOT SURE ABOUT SO AND

SO.

I'VE ONLY MET HIM ABOUT FIVE

TIMES.

MAYBE IF I MEET HIM AGAIN,

I'LL BE ABLE TO MAKE A

DECISION.

PEOPLE MEET EACH OTHER

ONE-ON-ONE.

THEY JUDGE YOU NOT ONLY ON

WHAT YOU SAY ON TV AND WHAT

YOUR COMMERCIAL SOUND BYTES

SAY, BUT ON YOUR CHARACTER.

AND THEY MAY HAVE MET YOUR

WIFE AND MAYBE EVEN YOUR

KIDS.

WHETHER I RUN OR NOT, I AM

IN FAVOR OF THE SMALL

PRIMARIES.

I GREW UP IN A RURAL STATE,

IN A TOWN OF 13,000, SO I

THINK I FEEL A CONNECTEDNESS

WITH PEOPLE FROM A RURAL

SETTING.

David: THAT IS RAND

PAUL HERE ON "THE BRODY

FILE."

WHEN WE ROLL ON FROM IOWA,

WE'RE GOING TO GO INSIDE THE

PASTORS AND PEWS EVENT.

WE'RE GOING TO ACTUALLY HEAR

FROM THESE PASTORS ON WHAT

THEY FEEL IS THE CRISIS HERE

IN AMERICA.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO

BEAUTIFUL, SUNNY IOWA.

AND HERE IN PE PELLA, IOWA,

WE JUST LOVE IT.

AND WE ALSO LOVE BEING THE

ONLY CAMERA INSIDE PASTORS

AND PEWS.

IT IS AN EVENT, AND IT'S PUT

ON BY DAVID LANE.

HE IS KIND OF A

SELF-EVANGELICAL ORGANIZER.

HE PUTS THESE THINGS

TOGETHER.

THIS IS WHERE PASTORS FROM

EACH STATE GET TOGETHER AND

BASICALLY TALK ABOUT THE

ISSUES FACING AMERICA

TODAY.

THE WHOLE IDEA HERE IS THAT

THESE PASTORS REALLY NEED TO

BE MORE INVOLVED ABOUT

SPEAKING OUT ABOUT THE

ISSUES FROM THE PULPIT.

AND SO THEY'RE ENCOURAGED TO

DO SO.

AND THEY GET TO SHARE THEIR

HEART AND SHARE THEIR

FEELINGS AT THIS CONFERENCE

SETUP.

THEIR WIVES ARE INVITED AND

EVERYTHING.

HAVE A LOOK AT SOME OF WHAT

THE PASTORS SAID.

WE ARE THE MOST PRIDEFUL

COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

DO YOU THINK IT WAS A

COINCIDENCE WHEN SUPER STORM

SANDY HIT, WHEN THE DROUGHT

THAT WE'RE IN -- DO YOU ALL

NOT HEAR GOD SAYING WHOA TO

THIS NATION?

HE HAS SAID WHOA SO MANY

TIMES.

AND YET I SEEN IN AN

INTERVIEW, I'VE SEEN WHERE

OUR PRESIDENT STOOD BEFORE A

BUNCH OF NEW JERSEYANS AND

SAID YOU ARE STRONGER THAN

ANY SUPER STORM SANDY.

ARE WE SUCH AN ARROGANT

NATION THAT WE THINK WE CAN

STAND UP TO THE HAND OF GOD?

THIS IS PASTORS.

THIS ISN'T ABOUT CANDIDATES

OR PARTIES OR POLITICAL

IDEOLOGY OR THE NEXT

ELECTION OR THE NEXT 10

ELECTIONS.

IT ISN'T EVEN ABOUT THE

SURVIVAL OF THE COUNTRY.

GOD CALLED US TO BE HIS

SPOKESMAN, TO PREACH HIS

WORD.

[APPLAUSE]

AND IF WE WILL DO THAT,

THE POLITICAL SYSTEM WILL

CHANGE.

NOT FROM THE TOP DOWN, BUT

FROM THE BOTTOM UP.

AS WE'VE HEARD AGAIN EARILER

THIS EVENING, THAT'S THE

ADVANTAGE OF BEING THE LAST

GUY ON THE LIST.

EVERYTHING I'VE SAID THEY'VE

ALREADY SAID.

BUT, YOU KNOW, THESE

POLITICIANS AREN'T GOOD AT

MUCH.

BUT THEY'RE GOOD AT THIS:

SEEING WHICH WAY THE WIND IS

BLOWING.

WE NEED TO CHANGE THE

DIRECTION OF THE WIND.

David: ALL RIGHT,

LOOK, WHEN IT COMIN COMES

TO EVANGELICALS, YOU HAVE

THE GAY MARRIAGE ISSUE, BUT

YOU ALSO HAVE THE ABORTION

ISSUE.

IT IS A BIG DEAL.

ONE OF THE REASONS WE CAME

TO IOWA IS TO LOOK AT THIS

WOMAN NAMED DR. JILL

MEADOWS.

SHE IS BEING CALLED, AT

LEAST BY SOME PRO-FAMILY

FOLKS, SHE'S BEING CALLED

THE IOWA VERSION OF CER KER

CERKERMIT GOZNEL.

WE TRIED TO GET AN INTERVIEW

WITH HER, AND IT WAS NOT

ABLE TO HAPPEN.

BUT WE HAVE A REPORT OF WHAT

SHE IS ABOUT.

DR. MEADOWS IS THE MEDICAL

DIRECTOR OF PLANNED

PARENTHOOD OF THE HEARTLAND

THAT COVERS THE STATES OF

NEBRASKA AND IOWA.

BEFORE THAT, SHE TRAINED

IOWA MEDICAL STUDENTS ON HOW

TO PERFORM ABORTIONS.

WHAT IS A HUGE CONCERN FOR

PRO-LIFE ACTIVISTS IN IOWA

IS THE TESTIMONY THAT SHE

GAVE AT THE U.S. SUPREME

COURT IN SUPPORT OF

PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION.

SHE DESCRIBES TAKING THE

BABY APART AND HAVING TO

CRUSH THE SKULL TO REMOVE

THE BABY.

EVEN WORSE, SHE DOESN'T

ANESTHETIZE THE BABY BEFORE

DOING THIS.

IT IS ALL DETAILED IN

SUPREME COURT DOCUMENTS.

SHE TESTIFIED VERY

GRAPHICALLY, ACTUALLY, TO

RIPPING BABIES APART, LIMB

BY LIMB, COMPRESSING THEIR

SKULL WHILE THERE WAS WHAT

SHE CALLED A FETAL HEART

BEAT, MEANING THOSE BABIES

WERE ALIVE.

David: AS FOR THE

MEDIA'S INTEREST IN THIS

CASE, IT HAS BEEN PRETTY

MUCH NON-EXISTENT.

IT IS FRUSTRATING BECAUSE

YOU CAN'T GET ANYBODY TO

LISTEN AND BABIES ARE

DYING.

David: CLEARLY

DR. JILL MEADOWS COULD GET A

LOT MORE MEDIA ATTENTION,

ESPECIALLY AFTER WHAT WE ARE

EXPOSING.

WHEN WE COME BACK, WE'RE

GOING ON A ROAD TRIP.

THAT'S RIGHT, "THE BRODY

FILE" CREW ON THE ROAD.

WE'LL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT

THAT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK, EVERYBODY, TO "THE

BRODY FILE."

AN IOWA VERSION OF THE

SHOW.

WE LOVE COMING TO IOWA.

AND YOU KNOW, I'VE GOT TO

TELL YOU, IT GETS US OUT OF

THE STUFFY OLD STUDIO AND

THE OFFICE.

WE HAVE OUR PRODUCER HERE OF

THE BRODY FILE, AND WE HAVE

THE PHOTOGRAPHER HERE AS

WELL, THE PHOTOGRAPHER AND

VIDEOGRAPHER.

AND I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU,

WE'VE HAD A FUN TIME.

IT IS IOWA, LOADS OF FUN.

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR ROAD

TRIP.

David: WELL, YOU CAN

FOLLOW US ALSO ON TWITTER AT

HASHTAG ROAD TRIP.

ANY TIME WE'RE ON THE ROAD,

WE'LL PUT UP THE HASHTAG.

WE HOPE YOU WILL FOLLOW US

IN IOWA AND OTHER PLACES.

BECAUSE, LOOK, WE HAD A

GREAT TIME IN IOWA.

AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU, WHAT

HAPPENS IN IOWA, STAYS IN

IOWA.

WE'RE BACK IN THE STUFFY OLD

STUDIO NEXT WEEK.

UNTIL THEN, HAVE A GREAT

WEEK AND GOD BLESS YOU.
