TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" DOING

MORE HARM THAN GOOD HOW FEDERAL

FAILURES COULD BE HURTING

AMERICA'S POOR.

HOW THE U.S. IS PUSHING FOR

PEACE IN THE MID MIDDLE EAST HOW

PALESTINIAN LEADERS ARE

SPREADING A DIFFERENT MESSAGE.

THE WORLD CLIMATE IS CHANGING

NOT HOW GLOBAL WARMING ACTIVIST

ARE CLAIMING.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING, AIM

MARK MARTIN.

FEDERAL SOCIAL PROGRAMS ARE

SUPPOSED TO HELP POOR AND

DISADVANTAGED IN THE COUNTRY.

AS PAUL STRAND EXPLAINS, IT

TURNS OUT MANY OF THESE PROGRAMS

SPEND BILLIONS OF YOUR DOLLARS

ON DOING NO GOOD AT ALL.

REPORTER: A NEW BOOK IS

RAISING A QUESTION: DO FEDERAL

SOCIAL PROGRAMS WORK?

AN AUTHOR HAS A DEFINITIVE

ANSWER.

WE HAVE A PROGRAM FOR YOU

THAT WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER

OFF.

THE FACT IS THESE PROGRAMS

AREN'T MAKING PEOPLE BETTER OFF.

REPORTER: DAVID MULLHOUSEN

COMBED THROUGH GOLD STANDARDS

STUDIES.

THEY ALMOST ALL FIND FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT FAILS AT APPROVING

THE LIVES OF AMERICANS.

REPORTER: THEY HELP

DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN CATCH UP

WITH BETTER OFF KIDS.

HE FOUNDZ THEY ARE NOT REACHING

GOALS.

HEAD START HAS NO IMPACT.

WE ARE SPENDING EIGHT BILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR AND NOT MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

REPORTER: ALL THESE FEDERAL

SOCIAL PROGRAMS COST TAX PAYORS

MORE THAN 440 BILLION DOLLARS A

YEAR.

WHAT IS TO LOSE BY KILLING THEM

OFF?

PROGRAMS THAT DON'T IMPROVE

PEOPLE'S LIVES ARE NOT GOING TO

BE MISSED.

REPORTER: THE 21ST CENTURY

LEARNING CENTERS ARE SUPPOSED TO

HELP STUDENTS BECOME BETTER

STUDENTS.

THE RESULTS AREN'T THERE.

WHAT THEY FOUND KIDS THAT

PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM ARE

MORE LIKELY TO BE SUSPENDED.

DID LESS WELL IN SCHOOL.

THIS PROGRAM IS A BILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR, IT IS A SMALL

CHUNK OF CHANGE.

REPORTER: IN HIS BOOK ALSO

RESULTS AS A RESULTS OF FAVORITE

CONSERVATIVE PROGRAMS LIKE THOSE

MEANT TO CURVE TEEN SEX.

HE POINTS OUT PRIVATE AND LOCAL

PROGRAMS SUCCESSFUL.

IT IS NOT THAT NOTHING WORKS,

JUST BIG FEDERAL PROGRAMS DON'T

WORK.

REPORTER: PAUL STRAND, CBN

NEWS, WASHINGTON.

THE WHITE HOUSE MARKING 50TH

ANNIVERSARY OF LYNDON B.

JOHNSON'S PROGRAM.

AFTER 50 YEARS ISN'T IT TIME

TO DECLARE GOVERNMENT'S WAR A

FAILURE.

WE NEED A REAL AGENDA THAT HELPS

PEOPLE LIFT THEMSELVES OUT OF

POVERTY AND PURSUE THE AMERICAN

DREAM.

THIS AGENDA WOULD CREATE AN

ECONOMY WITH MORE GOOD PAYING

MIDDLE CLASS JOBS AND A

GOVERNMENT WITH LESS DEBIT.

WHITE HOUSE SAYS POVERTY

DROPPED IN THE LAST 45 YEARS AND

ACCREDITS GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS.

FOR MORE WE TURN TO TERRY

JEFFREYS, EDITOR AND CHIEF OF

CNS NEWS.

TERRY, YOU DISAGREE GOVERNMENT

PROGRAMS ARE THE SOLUTION TO

POVERTY, CORRECT?

CORRECT.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE DATA, PRETTY

CLEAR THINGS.

50 YEARS AGO, JOHNSON DECLARED

WAR ON POVERTY.

MEDICAID, FOOD STAMP PROGRAM,

POVERTY WAS ON THE WAY DOWN IN

1966, IT WAS 14.77 PERCENT OF

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE LIVED IN

POVERTY.

FOR THE LAST 15 YEARS, 15% HAVE

LIVED IN POVERTY.

THAT IS THE ONLY THREE-YEAR

STRETCH SINCE '64.

IT WAS WORST TODAY THAN THE

YEARS AFTER THAT.

VERY DEFINITE TRENDS IN THE

POVERTY STATISTICS.

UNMARRIED WOMEN WITH CHILDREN

HAVE A MUCH HIGHER TENDENCY THAN

OTHER PEOPLE TO BE IN POVERTY.

THERE IS A REAL HIERARCHY IN

INCOME SINGLE WOMEN WITH

CHILDREN, 24,000.

SINGLE WOMAN WHO DOESN'T HAVE

CHILDREN, 42,000.

A MARRIED COUPLE WITH NO

CHILDREN, 70,000.

MARRIED COUPLE WITH CHILDREN

$84,000 SOLIDLY MIDDLE CLASS.

MARRY, HAVE KIDS, LIVE A

TRADITIONAL LIFE STYLE.

TERRY, WHAT OTHER CHOICES

SHOULD YOUNG PEOPLE MAKE THAT

WOULD HELP THEM AVOID A LIFE OF

POVERTY?

ANOTHER ONE IS INCOME

STATISTICS IS GOING TO SCHOOL,

STAYING IN SCHOOL, AND GETTING

DEGREES.

HIGH SCHOOL DROP OUTS MAKE THE

LEAST.

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES THAT DO

PRETTY WELL.

PEOPLE WITH COLLEGE AND DEGREES

DO BETTER.

PEOPLE THAT DO BEST OF ALL ARE

PEOPLE WITH PROFESSIONAL

DEGREES.

IF YOU CAN GET A DEGREE, KEEP

STUDYING DOING IT.

IF YOU HAVE A JOB AND KEEP IT,

YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE MORE MONEY

THAN SOMEONE TURNING THROUGH

JOBS PART TIME.

PEOPLE WHO WORK FULL TIME JOBS

DO BETTER THAN SHIFTING JOBS.

TURNING OVERSEAS, WESTERN

IRAQ IS FACING A CRITICAL

HUMANITARIAN CRISIS.

GOVERNMENT IS ATTEMPTING TO GAIN

CONTROL.

LIKELY TO WORSEN AS FOOD, WATER

AND MEDICINE BEGINNING TO RUN

OUT.

MORE THAN 5,000 FAMILIES FLED TO

ESCAPE THE VIOLENCE.

THEY ARE DISTRIBUTING MEDICAL

SUPPLIES AND FOOD TO REMAINING

PLACES.

THEY WILL NOT SEND TROOPS TO

IRAQ.

U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY IS PUSHING PEACE.

BEHIND THE SCENES, PALESTINIAN

LEADERS ARE SPREADING A

DIFFERENT MESSAGE.

CHRIS MITCHELL BRINGS US THE

STORY FROM JERUSALEM.

REPORTER: A REPORT EXPOSES

CONSISTENT EXAMPLES TO ABANDON

PEACE IN FAVOR OF HATE.

PALESTINIAN CHILDREN SHOUTING

"LIFT YOUR HAND, RAISE YOUR

VOICE, THIS ZIONIST MUST DIE."

REPORTER: ANNUAL PALESTINIAN

INCITEMENT INDEX SAY ONE THING

TO A WESTERN AUDIENCE, THEY

COMMUNICATE A DIFFERENT MESSAGE

TO THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN ARABIC.

THEY CONTAIN FOUR MAIN THINGS:

ISRAEL HAS NO RIGHT TO EXIST,

DISAPPEARANCE SHOULD BE EXPECTED

SOON.

JEWS ARE SUBHUMAN CREATURE AND

MUST BE DEALT WITH.

ALL FORMS OF TERRORISM ARE

LEGITIMATE TO REALIZE THEIR ONE

GOAL.

ONE PALESTINIAN GIRL, OH YOU WHO

WERE BROUGHT UP ON SPILLING

BLOOD, YOU HAVE CONDEMNED

HUMILIATION AND HARDSHIP.

SONS OF ZION, ALL EVIL AMONG

CREATIONS, WRETCHED PIGS.

THIS SHOWS CHILDREN SINGING,

WHEN THEY DIE AS MARTYRS THEY GO

TO HEAVEN.

ON MAHMOUD ABASS' PAGE, ALL

THESE EXAMPLES HAVE ONE THING IN

COMMON, DIRECTED TOWARDS YOUNG

PALESTINIANS.

FROM THE DAY HE WAS BORN AND

MIND IS ALREADY SHAPED.

GOING THROUGH THIS BRAINWASHING

INDOCTRINE NATION, DAY IN AND

DAY OUT.

NO WAY OUT BECAUSE THERE IS NO

OUT OF IT.

THESE ARE THE ONLY MESSAGES.

REPORTER: EYE CHRONICALLY,

PALESTINIAN INCITEMENT INCREASED

BY U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY.

FOR MORE OF CHRIS' EXCLUSIVE

REPORTING, "JERUSALEM DATELINE"

AT CBN.COM.

WHILE SOME CONTINUE PUSHING FOR

PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST, IT IS

ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS FOR

CHRISTIANS.

NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS TARGETED

AND KILLED FOR THEIR FAITH TWICE

AS HIGH IN 2013 THAN 2012.

WORST PLACE FOR BELIEVERS IS

NORTH KOREA WHICH HAS TOPPED THE

WATCH LIST 12 YEARS RUNNING.

POSSESSING A BIBLE IS PUNISHABLE

BY LIFE OR EXECUTION.

TOP 10 WORST COUNTRIES INCLUDE

SOMALIA, SYRIA, IRAQ,

AFGHANISTAN AND IRAN.

YOU CAN SEE THE COMPLETE WORLD

WATCH LIST AT CBN NEWS.COM.

A FORMER SECRETARY HAS SERIOUS

WORDS FOR THE COMMANDER IN

CHIEF, A LOOK AT ROBERT GATE'S

NEW MEMOIR.

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S MIDDLE EAST

POLICY TAKEN A MAJOR HIT FROM

ROBERT GATES, A NEW BOOK

CREATING BUZZ IN WASHINGTON

POLITICAL CIRCLES.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM EXPLAINS.

REPORTER: HE WAS A KEY PLAYER

IN SOME OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

MOST IMPORTANT NATIONAL SECURITY

DECISIONS.

IN HIS NEW SOON TO BE PUBLISHED

BOOK "DUTY, MEMOIRS OF A

SECRETARY AT WAR."

GATES WRITES OF EVERYTHING FROM

WAR IN IRAQ TO DEATH OF OSAMA

BIN LADEN TO THE ESCALATION.

RECALLING 2011 MEETING ON THE

AFGHAN WAR, HE REALIZED THE

PRESIDENT CAN'T STAND KARZAI,

DOESN'T CONSIDER THE WAR TO BE

HIS.

FOR HIM IT IS ALL ABOUT GETTING

OUT.

GATES ALSO RECOUNTS THE

CONVERSATION HE HEARD BETWEEN

THE PRESIDENT AND THEN SECRETARY

OF STATE HILARY CLINTON.

THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT THEIR

PUBLIC STATEMENTS CRITICIZING

PRESIDENT BUSH'S DECISION TO

SEND MORE TROOPS INTO IRAQ.

HILARY TOLD THE PRESIDENT IT HAD

BEEN POLITICAL BECAUSE SHE WAS

FACING HIM IN THE IOWA PRIMARY.

PRESIDENT OBAMA CONCEDED VAGUELY

THAT OPPOSITION TO THE IRAQ

SURGE HAD BEEN POLITICAL.

GATES SAYS IT WAS SURPRISING AND

DISMAYING.

MEMOIR IS NOT ALL CRITICISM.

GATES CALLS PRESIDENT OBAMA A

MAN OF PERSONAL INTEGRITY AND

THE DECISION TO GO AFTER OSAMA

BIN LADEN WAS ONE OF THE MOST

COURAGEOUS DECISIONS I HAD EVER

WITNESSED IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND

JOE BIDEN A MAN OF HIS WORD AS

WELL.

I THINK HE HAS BEEN WRONG ON

NEARLY EVERY FOREIGN MAJOR

POLICY AND NATIONAL SECURITY

ISSUE OVER THE PAST FOUR

DECADES.

THE PRESIDENT DISAGREES CALLING

BIDEN ONE OF THE LEADING

STATESMAN OF HIS TIME.

THE BOOK WON'T HELP THE

PRESIDENT POLITICALLY COMING AT

A TIME WHEN HIS POLL NUMBERS

HAVE FALLEN TO HISTORIC LOWS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

SWITCHING GEARS, THE POLAR

VORTEX COULD PUT A FREEZE ON THE

DALE HURD HAS TONIGHT'S FOCUS

REPORT FROM COPENHAGEN.

REPORTER: OOPSS THIS WASN'T

SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN, THIS SHIP

GLOBAL WARMING.

STUCK IN DENIAL OVER THE FACT

THAT THE CLIMATE SEEMS TO BE

GETTING COOLER.

CLIMATE IS CHANGING BUT NOT THE

WAY THE CLIMATE CROWD TOLD US IT

WOULD CHANGE.

NATURE HAS MADE A MOCKERY OF

GLOBAL WARMING.

ICE IS NOT ONLY GROWING IN THE

SOUTH POLE, BUT NORTH POLE.

COLDEST ARCTIC TEMPERATURES HAVE

DESCENDED ON NORTH AMERICA.

IT DIDN'T STOP GREEN PEACE

THREATING TO CALL OFF CHRISTMAS

IMPOSSIBLE.
