OLYMPIC HERO GABBY

DOUGLAS.

MY COACH SAID HE SAW THIS

FIRE IN MY EYES.

I DON'T WANT TO PROVE THEM

WRONG, BUT I WANTED TO PROVE

MYSELF RIGHT.

THE SACRIFICES ALONG THE

WAY.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL

HAPPEN"uJáj

UBUTç I KNOW

GOD HAS A PLAN FOR US.

AND WHAT KEPT HER GOING

FOR GOLD.

I REFUSE TO QUIT.

WE'VE COME TOO FAR.

Pat: WELCOME, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, TO THIS

EDITION OF "THE 700 CLUB."

JESUS SAID BEFORE HE COMES

BACK, THERE WOULD BE

EARTHQUAKES IN DIRE PLACES,

AND WE'RE SEEING UXE CRUSTç

OF THE EARTH BEGINNING TO

MOVE AROUND, AT LEAST THE

PLATES THAT WE'RE FAMILIAR

WITH.

WE HAD, YESTERDAY, A MASSIVE

8.2 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE

WHICH HIT THE NORTH COAST OF

CHILE.

INVESTIGATORS ARE EXAMINING

THE FALLOUT FROM THAT QUAKE,

WHICH LEFT AT LEAST SIX

PEOPLE DEAD, AND MORE THAN

80,000 HOMELESS.

Wendy: BUT AS POWERFUL

AS THAT EARTHQUAKE WAS,

EXPERtSç WARNç AN EVEN BIGGER

ONE COULD BE ON THE WAY.

CHARLENE ARON HAS THAT

STORY.

Reporter: THE QUAKE

STRUCK ABOUT 8:46:00 P.M.,

TRIGGERING TSUNAMI WARNINGS

AND FORCING EVACUATIONS

ALONG CHILE'S ENTIRE PACIFIC

COAST.

EVERYBODY IS STAYING UP

SUPER LATE.

Reporter: THE SHAKING

DAMAGED SEVERAL HOMES AND

BUSINESSES, ASç WELLç AS AN

AIRPORT.

IT ALSO SET OFF LANDSLIDES

THAT BLOCKED ROADS AND LEFT

THOUSANDS WITHOUT POWER.

SOME 400 ANTI-RIOT POLICE

AND SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN

DEPLOYED TO PREVENT LOOTING,

AND TO ROUND UP 300 INMATES

THAT ESCAPED THE PRISON.

AT LEAST EIGHT STRONG

AFTERSHOCKS FOLLOWED THE

QUAKE, SHAKING BUILDINGS AS

FAR AWAY ASç BOLIVIAç AND

PERU.

YOU COULD FEEL THE WALL

MOVING, AS WEL AS WELL AS

THE FLOOR, AND THERE WAS A

TENT IN THE VERANDA, AND YOU

COULD SEE THAT MOVING BACK

AND FORTH.

Reporter: THE

EARTHQUAKE EVEN TRIGGERED

MICROSCOPIC SEISMIC

MEASUREMENTS IN NEW YORK'S

CENTRAL PARK.

THERE IS A SERIES OF FAULT

LINESç CIRCLING THEç BASIN,

THAT IS FAMILIAR WITH

ERUPTIONS.

WE EXPECT ANOTHER 8-POINT

EARTHQUAKE IN THE FUTURE.

Reporter: IN 2010,

ABOUT 500 PEOPLE WERE KILLED

WITH AN 8.8 MAGNITUDE

EARTHQUAKE STRUCK THE

COUNTRY.

IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS,

HUNDREDS OF EARTHQUAKES HAVE

BEEN SHAKING CHILE'S FAR

NORTHERN COAST.

MEANWHILE, A SMALL

EARTHQUSKE THATç HIT

LOS ANGELES LAST WEEK, COULD

POINT TO THE BIG ONE.

THE GEOLOGICAL SURVEY

ESTIMATES THAT A 7.5

MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE COULD

KILL 18,000 PEOPLE, AND

CAUSE UP TO $250 BILLION IN

DAMAGES.

CHARLENE ARON, CBN NEWS.

Pat: IT IS HAPPENING.

WHEN THAT THING BEGINS TO

SHAKE, WITH PLATES ALL UP

AND DOWN THE PACIFIC COAST

THAT ARE MOVING, A BIG ONE

IN CALIFORNIA, A BIG ONEç MAYç

BE COMING, AND THE ONE I

WOULD WORRY ABOUT MORE THAN

ANYTHING ELSE IS WHAT

HAPPENED IN YELLOWSTONE

PARK.

IT WAS THE NORTHERN PART OF

YELLOWSTONE, BUT THAT

CALDERA THERE, AND IF THAT

VOLCANO BEGINS TO BLOW, IT

COULD COVER THE ENTIRE

UNITED STATES.

IT COULD BE THE MOST

DEVASTATING VOLCANO IN

HISTORY.

WE'RE FACING THESE THINGS.

IT IS JUST THE PART OF THE

GLOBE WE LIVE ON.

WE LIVE ON MOVING PLATES.

AND LIKE IT ORç NOT,0T

THE WAY IT IS.

BUT THOSE WHO LIVE NEAR THE

RING OF FIRE JUST KNOW THAT

YOU BETTER PREPARE FOR

SOMETHING BECAUSE IT WILL

COME DOWN THE ROAD.

THEY ARE GOING TO COME.

IT IS NOT A QUESTION OF IF.

IT'S A QUESTION OF WHEN.

WELL, I THINK ANOTHER

EARTHQUAKE MAY BE IN THE

MAKING IN POLITICS.

THE DEMOCRATS MAY BE FACING

A POLITICAL EARTHQUAKE THIS

FALL IN THE MID-TERM

ELECTIONS.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTONSC'T HERE ISç

JOHN.

Reporter: PAT, DESPITE

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CLAIMS OF

SUCCESS WITH OBAMACARE

SIGN-UPS, THE HEALTH CARE

LAW IS STILL DEEPLY

UNPOPULAR AND A POLITICAL

LIABILITY FOR DEMOCRATS.

BUT AS EPHRAIM GRAHAM

REPORTS, REPUBLICANS ALSO

HAVE ANOTHER ADVANTAGE IN

THIS YEAR'S ELECTIONS.

Reporter: UNDER

PRESIDENT OBAMA, DEMOCRATS

HAVE TURNED OUT THEIR BASE

BRILLIANTLY FOR PRESIDENTIAL

ELECTIONS.

BUTç INç CONGRESSIONAL

ELECTIONS, IT'S ADVANTAGE

CEASE.

EVEN AS OBAMA WAS WINNING A

SECOND TERM IN 2012.

IN THE HOUSE, DEMOCRATIC

CANDIDATES GOT 1.4 MILLION

MORE VOTES THAN REPUBLICANS,

BUT THE REPUBLICANS MAINTAIN

A 33-SEAT MAJORITY.

THEY DID THIS BECAUSE OF THE

WAY CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS

WERE DRAWN IN A NUMBER OF

STATES.

Reporter: BUT

REPUBLICANS HAVE A BIG

ADVANTAGE INçç GEOGRAPHY,

ESPECIALLY IN THE MID-TERM

ELECTION, WHEN THE RACES GET

LESS ATTENTION.

LOOKING AT THIS MAP OF U.S.

COUNTIES IN THE 2008

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, YOU

WOULD THINK THAT THE RED

COUNTIES WON BY JOHN MCCAIN

AND SARAH PALIN, WOULD HAVE

PRODUCED A LANDSLIDE WIN

OVER PRESIDENT OBAMA AND JOE

BIDEN, BUT IT WAS THE OTHER

WAY AROUND.

THE CONSTITUTION CALLS FOR

STATEç LEGISLATUREA TO REDRAW

DISTRICTS EVERY 10 YEARS

AFTER THE CENSUS.

SO WHEN THE G.O.P. WON A

VICTORY IN 2010, THEY TOOK

CONTROL OF THE PROCESS.

THE CONTROL OF THE

LEGISLATIVE CHAMBERS AND THE

GOVERNORSHIP, YOU HAD A

BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO DRAW

LINES THAT WERE FAIR,

COMPETITIVE, AND REPUBLICANS

COULD DO WELL HEADING INTO

THE 2012 ELECTIONS, THROUGH

THE REST OF THE DECADE.

Reporter: BUT THE

DEóOCRATSç HAVE HELPED

REPUBLICANS WITH THE GIFT

THAT KEEPS ON GIVING: THE

THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE

PLAN.

FOUR YEARS AGO, OBAMA HELPED

THE G.O.P. WIN AN HISTORIC

63 HOUSE SEATS.

IT WAS THE ISSUE IN 2010

THAT CAUSED US TO HAVE THE

PARTY REVOLUTION, AND IT WAS

ALL AROUND THE ISSUE OF

HEALTH CARE.

AND THIS YEAR IT WILL BE

AROUND THE ISSUE OF HEALTH

CARE.

David: MARK, I DON'T

KNOW IF YOU HEARD ABOUTQ!%M1ñ BUTç THERE IS A

CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE DOWN

IN ALABAMA, I BELIEVE WE

REPORTED ON THIS, THAT IS

LITERALLY TAKING OUT A

SHOTGUN AND SHOOTING THE

OBAMACARE PLAN, THE ACTUAL

BILL ITSELF.

LOOK, THERE IS A LOT OF

ANIMOSITY TOWARDS THIS

BILL.

THAT'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE

ANY TIME SOON.

AND HERE IS THE KEY FOR

REPUBLICANS: THEY WOULD JUST

NEED TO STAY OUT OF THE WAY

AT THIS POINT.

DO NO MORE DAMAGE.

Reporter: DEMOCRATS

STILL HAVE TIME TO MAKE THE

ELECTIONSç ABMu( SOMETHING

OTHER THAN OBAMACARE.

BUT THE PARTY IN POWER,

ALMOST ALWAYS LOSES SEATS IN

THE MIDDLE OF A PRESIDENT'S

SECOND TURN.

AND IT IS A STEEP HILL FOR

DEMOCRATS TO CLIMB.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

WELL, IF YOU THOUGHT THIS

WINTER WAS EXCEPTIONALLY

COLD IN MUCH OF THE COUNTRY,

YOU'RE RIGHT.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN

CHICAGO.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

IN CHICAGO SAYS THE AVERAGE

TEMPERATURE FROM DECEMBERç TO

MARCHç IN THE WINDY CITY WAS

22°, WHICH IS THE COLDEST

PERIOD ON RECORD, DATING

BACK TO 1872.

THE CITY ALSO GOT A WHOPPING

80 INCHES OF SNOW THIS PAST

WINTER.

PAT, THAT'S ENOUGH SNOW TO

LAST A LIFETIME.

Pat: YOU KNOW, I LOVE

CHICAGO.

THEY'RE JUST VERY FRIENDLY

PEOPLE IN CHICAGO.

AND I TELL YOU, TO LIVE IN

THAT COLD -- THEY CALL IT

THE WINDY CITY.

THE AIRç COMES OFFç THE LAKE.

AND MY GOODNESS, IT IS COLD

IN THAT CITY.

BUT THIS IS THE COLDEST ON

RECORD.

Wendy: YEAH, BECAUSE

YOU THINK, 22° WITH THE

WINDCHILL, THAT WOULD

BE, LIKE, -22°.

EVEN HERE IN VIRGINIA BEACH,

WE HAD A LOT OF THAT.

Pat: THE SUN IS

SHINING, AND THE WARMTH IS

COMING, AND THE BIRDS ARE

SINGING HERE.

BUT, IN ANY EVENT, DON'T

TALK ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING.

ALLç RIGHT.ç

JOHN?

Reporter: PAT, PRIME

MINISTER E VA CAMERON HAS

TOLD THE COUNTRY'S

INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES TO

INVESTIGATE THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IN THE UNITED

KINGDOM.

THAT COMES AFTER A REPORT

THAT THEY ARE USING LONDON

AS A BASE.

CAIRO'S NEW GOVERNMENT

DECLARED THE BOTHER BOTHER A

TERRORIST GROUP AFTER A

SPATE OF ATTACKS ON THE

EGYPTIAN MILITARYç ANDç POLICE

LAST YEAR.

NOW THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT

IS CONCERNED MANY

BROTHERHOOD MEMBERS HAVE

NEED EGYPT.

AUTISM WAS VIRTUALLY UNHEARD

OF JUST A GENERATION AGO.

NOW THE NUMBER OF CHILDREN

BEING DIAGNOSED IS

SKYROCKETING.

LORI JOHNSON TAKES A LOOK AT

WHAT IS BEHIND THIS

INCREASE.

Reporter: CHILDREN WITH

AN AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

BEHAVEç ABNORMALLY,ç FROM MILD

SOCIAL AWKWARDNESS TO A

SEVERE INABILITY TO

COMMUNICATE.

THE NUMBER HAS JUMPED TO ONE

IN 68 ACCORDING TO THE

C.D.C.

JUST TWO YEARS AGO, IT WAS

ONE IN 88, AND SEVEN YEARS

AGO, ONE IN 150.

PART OR MUCH OF THE REASON

FOR THE INCREASE IS THAT

AWARENESS HAS INCREASED.

THE C.D.C.'S COLLEEN BOYLE

SAYS IT COULD BE DOCTORSç AREç

GETTING BETTER AT

IDENTIFYING THESE CHILDREN.

BOYS ARE FIVE TIMES MORE

LIKELY TO BE AUTISTIC THAN

GIRLS.

THE AVERAGE AGE OF DIAGNOSIS

IS FOUR, BUT AUTISM

ADVOCATES SAY IT IS BETTER

TO CATCH IT BY AGE TWO,

ADDING THAT THE SOONER

CHILDREN ARE DIAGNOSED AND

ENROLLED IN TRAINING

PROGRAMS, THE GREATER THEIR

SUCCESS IN THE LONG RUN.

DIAGNOSIS MIGHTçç HAPPEN AT

TWO OR FOUR AND A HALF OR

FIVE OR EIGHT, BUT PEOPLE

LIVE WITH AUTISM THROUGHOUT

THEIR ENTIRE LIVES.

SINCE THERE IS NO

PHYSICAL WAY TO TEST FOR

AUTISM, A DIAGNOSIS IS BASED

ON THE CHILD'S BEHAVIOR.

PARENTS SHOULD SEE A

QUALIFIED PHYSICIAN,

PREFERABLY Açç PEDIATRIC

DOCTOR.

BY AGE ONE, A CHILD SHOULD

BE POINTING AND TRYING TO

SAY A COMPLETE WORD.

FOR A COMPLETE LIST OF HOW

YOUR CHILD SHOULD BE

BEHAVING AT ONE AGE IS ON

THE C.D.C. WEBSITE, "LEARN

THE SYMPTOMS, ACT EARLY."

ACCORDING TO RESEARCH

CONDUCTED BY THE UNIVERSITY

OF CALIFORNIA AND PUBLISHED

INçç THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL

OF MEDICINE, THE BRAINS OF

AUTISTIC CHILDREN DEVELOP

ABNORMALLY, BEGINNING IN THE

SECOND OR THIRD TRIMESTER.

WHAT CAUSES THAT DISRUPTION

IS UNCLEAR.

SOME THEORIES POINT TO

GENETIC FACTORS COMBINED

WITH EXTERNAL ONES, SUCH AS

ILLNESS DURING PREGNANCY, AN

OLDER FATHER, TRANS-FATS OR

ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS.

SCIENTISTSç ARE CAREFULç NOT

TO SPECULATE BECAUSE FOR

YEARS SOME THEORIZE

CHILDHOOD VACCINES CAUSED

AUTISM, A CLAIM THAT MOST

SCIENTISTS NOW SAY WAS

FALSE.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

EATING MORE FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES CAN HELP YOU LIVE

LONGER.

AND THE MORE YOU EAT THEM,

THE BETTER OFF YOU'LL SEE.

THE STUDYçç FOLLOWED 65,000

PEOPLE IN BRITAIN.

EATING SEVEN OR MORE

SERVINGS A DAY CUT THE RISK

OF DEATH BY 42%.

PEOPLE WHO ATE FEWER

SERVINGS SAW THEIR CHANCES

OF LIVING LONGER INCREASE,

BUT NOT BY MUCH.

AND VEGETABLES WERE FOUND TO

HAVE MORE BENEFIT THAN

FRUIT.

THE CLEAR MESSAGE HERE IS

THE MORE FRUIT AND

VEGETABLES YOU EAT THE LESS

LIKELY YOU ARE TO DIE0A, ANYç

AGE.

PAT, WE KNOW YOU'RE A

HEALTHY GUY.

YOU MUST BE GETTING YOUR

DAILY SERVING OF FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES.

Pat: I'M GETTING THEM.

AND NOW SOMEBODY SAID YOU

NEED TO STAY AROUND THE LINE

OF 120.

SO I'VE CUT IT BACK.

Wendy: BUT ARE YOU

GETTING SEVEN SERVINGS A

DAY?

Pat: I DON'T KNOW ABOUT

SEVEN, BUT I EAT A LOT.

Wendy: YOU WOULD HAVE

TOQá SO MUCHç TO GET SEVEN

SERVINGS.

Pat: YOU WOULD HAVE TO

BE LIKE A COW.

Wendy: ALL OF YOUR

SNACKS WOULD HAVE TO BE

CUCUMBERS AND CARROTS.

Pat: I DON'T DO THAT.

BUT I SURE GO FOR THESE

BERRIES.

I LOVE BERRIES.

YOU'VE GOT ALL KINDS OF

ANTIOXIDANTS IN BERRIES, AND

I LOVE NUTS.

MORNING FOR ME IS AN

ABSOLUTE TREAT, WITH ALL OF

THE NUTS AND BERRIES.

THE BEST THING TO DOçç ABOUT

STAYING OLD IS CHOOSE YOUR

ANCESTORS WISELY.

IF YOU DO THAT, YOU'LL GET

SOME GENES THAT WILL KEEP

YOU ALIVE.

Wendy: AMEN.

UP NEXT, SOMETHING IS ROTTEN

IN THE STATE OF SWEDEN.

YOU HAD A PERFECTLY GOOD

COUNTRY, A RICH COUNTRY.

AND IN SERIES TIMES, THAT

COUNTRY WILL BE GONE.

Wendy: WHATEVER

HAPPENED TO THE SWEDISH

MODEL?

FIND OUT WHEN WE COMEhBACK.

çççççç

Pat: SWEDEN, IT'Rç Aç

BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY, AND THERE

ARE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE.

THEY LOOK SO HEALTHY AND

PROSPEROUS.

AND THEY HAD CONSERVATIVE

ECONOMIC POLICIES, AND THEY

HAD A BIG LIBERAL WELFARE

STATE, AND IT WAS KNOWN AS

THE SWEDISH MODEL.

SOME PEOPLE SAY IT WAS A

SMASHING SUCCESS.

BUT OTHERS WARNED THAT

SWEDEN HAS A DARK SIDE,

RULED BY POLITICALçç

CORRECTNESS.

DALE HURD WENT TO SWEDEN TO

GET THE FACTS.

Reporter: WHEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA VISITED

SWEDEN LAST YEAR, HE

EXPRESSED HIS ADMIRATION FOR

THE SWEDISH MODEL, AND THAT

SHOULD MAKE AMERICANS TAKE

NOTICE.

BECAUSE THE UNITED NATIONS'

REPORT SAYS SWEDEN WILL BE A

THIRD WORLD NATION IN ABOUT

15 YEARS, BELOW LIBYA AND

BULGARIA.ç

SWEDENç IS A SOCIETY THAT

BELIEVES IT IS RACING INTO

THE FUTURE, BUT CRITICS WARN

IT IS RACING TO THE BOTTOM.

WELCOME TO UTOPIA, ALSO NONE

AS SWEDEN.

SWEDISH LEADERS BELIEVE

THEY'RE BUILDING THE PERFECT

SOCIETY.

AND SWEDEN HAS BEEN COMPARED

TO A COUPLE OF NATIONS WHICH

ALSO TRIED TO BUILD PERFECT

SOCIETIES.

NORTH KOREA, AND THE SOVIET

UNION.

IF YOUçç DON'T LIKE HOW UTOPIA

IS BEING BUILT HERE, YOU

WON'T BE SHOT, LIKE IN NORTH

KOREA, BUT YOUR LIFE COULD

BECOME VERY UNPLEASANT VERY

QUICKLY.

HELLO.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: THIS IS A

JOURNALIST FROM ONE OF

SWEDEN'S LEADING TABLOIDS

CONFRONTING A SWEDE AT HIS

HOME.

THE MAN, A PROFESSOR, MADE

WHAT HE THOUGHT WERE

ANONYMOUS NEGATIVE COMMENTS

ON A WEBSITEç ABOUTç IMMIGRANT

PROBLEMS IN SWEDEN.

BUT LEFT-WING HACKERS HELPED

THE NEWSPAPER TRACK HIM DOWN

AND OTHERS LIKE HIM, SO THAT

THEY COULD BE EXPOSED BEFORE

THE WHOLE NATION AS

RACISTS.

THIS MAN, A MANAGER, WAS

FIRED BECAUSE OF IT.

SWEDEN'S LEFTEST

ESTABLISHMENT AND MEDIA

BELIEVE A CORNERSTONE OF

THEIR PERFECT SOCIETY IS

MULTI-CULTURISM, AND LIVEç

SCALEç IMMIGRATION FROM SOME

OF THE POOREST NATIONS ON

EARTH, AND SWEDES WHO

DISAGREE WITH THAT RISK

BEING LABELLED RACIST,

FASCIST, AND EVEN NAZI.

THE WORD IS TO AVOID

BEING HOSTILE TO

IMMIGRATION.

IT IS A MOST IMPORTANT POINT

TO PROVE THAT YOU'RE

FRIENDLY TOWARDS FOREIGNERS,

YOU'RE FRIENDLY TOWARDS

IMMIGRATION.

Reporter: THIS DANISH

JOURNALIST IS AUTHOR OF THE

BOOK "ABSOLUTE SWEDEN."

IT ISççLL ABOUT WHETHER

OR NOT YOU CAN BE SAID TO BE

HOSTILE TO IMMIGRATION.

ONCE THAT IS PROVEN --

Reporter: PROVEN?

PROVEN, YOU'RE OUT OF THE

GAME.

Reporter: IT DOESN'T

MATTER IF SWEDEN'S

IMMIGRATION MODEL IS FAILING

MISERABLY, IF TESTS SCORES

IN SWEDISH SCHOOLS ARE

PLUMMETTING, OR IF CRIME IN

SOME AREAS HAS SKYROCKETED.

IMMIGRANTS BURNED THIS

STOCKHOLM HOME FOR OVER A

WEEK LASTç YEAR.ç

MANY JEWS NOW LIVE IN FEAR

OF ATTACKS BY MUSLIM

IMMIGRANTS AND ARE LEAVING.

THIS FORMER JOURNALIST FROM

A SWEDISH RADIO LEFT LAST

YEAR AND RETURNED TO HER

NATIVE SOMALIA.

SHE

TOLD

SWEDISH TELEVISION

THAT

MOGADISHU WAS SAFER

THAN STOCKHOLM.

AND FORG ABOUT AN

AMERICAN-STYLE MELTING POT,

WHERE IMMIGRANTS WILL LEARN

TO BECOME SWEDISH.ç

THATç IS A RACIST IDEA.

HE SAYS SWEDES ARE SUPPOSED

TO LEARN FROM IMMIGRANTS,

AND NOT THE OTHER WAY

AROUND.

AS SIMULATION IS

COMPLETELY OUT OF THE

QUESTION.

Reporter: WHO SAYS

ASSIMULATION IS COMPLETELY

OUT OF THE QUESTION?

IN ALL MAIN PARTIES, THEY

WOULD LAUGH ABOUT THE WORD.

THE WORD "ASSIMULATION" IS A

NAZI WORD IN SWEDEN.

Reporter: WE TALKEDç TOç

SEVERAL SWEDES WHO DESCRIBED

A HITLER-STYLE SITUATION.

THEY POINTED TO YOU AND

SAID YOU'RE A RACIST, YOU

WILL HAVE NO CAREER, NO JOB,

YOU MIGHT LOSE YOUR FAMILY.

Reporter: THIS ENGLISH

JOURNALIST AND THIS DANISH

JOURNALIST RUN THE ONLINE

NEWSPAPER, WHICH COVERS

ISSUES LIKE IMMIGRATION THAT

THEç MAINSTREAMç MEDIA IN

SWEDEN IGNORES.

BUT CARLQUEST SAYS THEIR

PLAN FOR A TRADITIONAL PAPER

FAILED BA BECAUSE SWEDES

WERE TOO AFRAID TO HAVE THE

NEWSPAPER DELIVERED TO THEIR

HOMES.

WHAT IF THE MAILMAN SAW

YOU HAD THIS NEWSPAPER, OR

YOUR NEIGHBORS SAW IT, THEY

MIGHT THINK YOU'RE A RACIST

OR YOU HATE MUSLIMS.

WE THOUGHT WE COULD MAKE

AN IMPACT,ç ANDç WE STILL

THINK WE CAN, BUT IT IS

TOUGH GOING.

Reporter: DISPATCH

INTERNATIONAL NOW HANGS ON

THROUGH DONATION.

SWEDEN HAS BECOME A NATION

WHERE SOME VIEWPOINTS ARE

SIMPLY TOO RISKY TO EVEN

READ.

WHAT SWEDISH PARENTS DO

NOWADAYS IS TO ADVICE THEIR

KIDS NOT TO INTERFERE IN THE

PUBLIC DISCUSSION, NOT TO

EXPRESS SO-CALLED RADICAL

IDEAS WOULD YO ABOUT THIS

OR THAT.çç

Reporter: WHY DO THEY

OWED VICE THE ADVICE THEM

NOW?

BECAUSE THEY'RE AFRAID.

Reporter: THAT THEIR

KIDS WON'T GET WORK?

YES.

AND THAT IS A BODY SITUATION

BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN A

COUNTRY WHERE YOU CANNOT

SOLVE ANY PROBLEMS.

KCAN YOUYOU CANNOT EVEN

MENTION PROBLEMS.

Reporter: THIS MAN WAS

ALMOST KILLED BY AN

IMMiG+ANT WHOCAME AND FIRED

A GUN AT HIM.

HE DECIDED TO LEAVE THE

COUNTRY.

SWEDEN IS NOT GOING TO

BECOME A THIRD-WORLD NATION

TOMORROW, BUT ACCORDING TO

ONE REPORT, ONE DAY IT

WILL.

WE HAD A PERFECTLY GOOD

COUNTRY, A RICH COUNTRY, A

NICE COUNTRY.

AND IN A FEW YEARS' TIME,

THAT COUNTRY WILL BE GONE.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, REPORTING FROM

SWEDEN AND DENMARK.

Pat:ç WELL,ç THAT'S A

SHOCKER.

YOU HEAR FROM DALE THE

PROGRAMS AND VIEWS YOU WON'T

HEAR ANY PLACE ELSE.

HE DOES A TERRIFIC JOB.

THAT'S FRIGHTENING, BECAUSE

SWEDEN WAS THE HAVEN FOR

PEOPLE FLEEING THE NAZIS IN

WORLD WAR II.

IT WAS A PLACE OF FREEDOM

AND LIBERTY AND PROSPERITY.

AND TO THINK THEY COULD BE

KILLED BY POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS, IT SHOWS WOULD

COULD(H@PPEN HERe.ç

WENDY?

Wendy: WELL, UP NEXT,

SHE INSPIRED HEARTS

WORLDWIDE WHEN SHE MADE

OLYMPIC HISTORY.

I THINK THAT'S WHEN I HAD

A LOT OF MY FAITH THE MOST.

I PRAYED.

MY COACH SAID HE SAW THAT IN

MY EYES.

Wendy: THE POWER THAT

TOOK THE SO-CALLED "FLYING

SQUIRREL" ALL THE WAY TO THE

GOLD.

AFTER THIS.çç

çççççççç

Pat: THE UNIVERSITY IS

THE PREEMINENT GLOBAL

CHRISTIAN GRQD.Q

UNIVERSITY.ç

THE PREEMINENT.

AND IT IS FANTASTIC.

NOW REGENT HAS BROUGHT FORTH

Wendy: AS YOU KNOW, MY

BROTHER GRADUATED FROM

SUCCESSFUL LAWYER IN

THE CHARLOTTESVILLE,

VIRGINIA AREA.

HE SAYS REGENT LAW SCHOOL

WENDY?

Wendy: SHE IS KNOWN AS

THE FLYING SQUIRREL.

GABBY DOUGLAS MADE HISTORY

AS THE FIRST

AFRICAN-AMERICAN GYMNIST TO

BECOME THE FIRST ALL AROUND

GYMNIST, AND THE FIRSTç TOç

WIN BOTH INDIVIDUAL AND TEAM

GOLD AT THE SAME OLYMPICS.

SHE CREDITS HER SUCCESS TO

HER FAITH AND TO THE POWER

OF PRAYER.

Reporter: LIKE ALL

OLYMPIANS, GABBY DOUGLAS'

OLYMPICS WAS MET WITH

DETERMINATION, HARD WORK,

AND SACRIFICE.

BUT IT WAS MORE THAN THAT.

GABBY'S JOURNEY WAS LAID ON

A FOUNDATION OF GOD'S WORD

ANDç PRAYER.ç

IF YOU GO BACK IN THE

FOOTAGE AND THE COMPETITION,

YOU'LL SEE MY LIPS MOVING,

AND I'M PRAYING.

AND I REMEMBER WHEN I FELL.

AND I'M, LIKE, I FELL

BECAUSE I DIDN'T PRAY.

I WOULD TAKE IT REALLY

SERIOUSLY.

Reporter: SHE LEARNED

HOW TO PRAY FROM HER MOTHER,

NATALIE.

IN FACT, WHEN GABBY WAS

BORN, SHE WAS SICKLY AND

COULDN'T KEEP FOOD DOWN.

NATALIE, A MOTHER OF2FOUR,ç

COULDN'T AFFORD A DOCTOR OR

MEDICINE AND HAD ONLY ONE

OPTION.

LITERALLY, I JUST

REMEMBER STAYING UP AT NIGHT

JUST PRAYING OVER HER AND

JUST SAYING, JESUS, JESUS,

JESUS.

Reporter: AND THEN

GABBY STARTED GAINING WEIGHT

AND BECAME A HEALTHY, HAPPY

BABY.

I MEAN, THERE IS NO OTHER

EXPLANATION AS TO HOW SHE

MIRACULOUSLY RECOVERED AND

JUST GREW INTO THEçç AMAZING,

STRONG CHILD THAT SHE IS.

Reporter: AS GABBY

FOUND HER PASSION IN

GYMNASTICS, SHE SPENT HOURS

IN TRAINING.

BUT IT WAS EXPENSIVE, AND

NATALIE COULDN'T AFFORD ALL

OF HER CHILDREN'S PURSUITS.

THEN GABBY'S TWO OLDER

SISTERS DECIDED TO GIVE UP

THEIR ACTIVITIES SO THEIR

SISTER COULD PURSUE HER

OLYMPIC DREAMS.

AT FIRST, NATALIE WOULDN'T

HAVEçç IT.

AS A PARENT, HOW CAN I

ALLOW MY OTHER CHILDREN TO

GIVE UP THEIR DREAMS AND

PASSION FOR THE DREAMS AND

PASSION OF ONE.

AND I STRUGGLED WITH THAT

FOR A LONG TIME.

IT WAS MY KIDS, REALLY, THAT

SET ME FREE.

THEY SAID, YOU KNOW, MOM, WE

WANT TO DO THIS.

WE WANT TO SEE HER ACHIEVE

HER GOALS.

WE FEEL LIKE WE'LL GET

THERE, TOO, BUT RIGHT NOW

THIS IS HER TIME.

Reporter: NATSLIEB)áTu

THE ROAD AHEAD WOULD NOT BE

AN EASY ONE.

SO SHE MADE PRAYER AND BIBLE

STUDY A PRIORITY.

GABBY SAYS THOSE FOUNDATIONS

KEPT HER ON TRACK IN HER

MOST DIFFICULT TIMES.

I REMEMBER IN 2011, THE

MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIPS, AND

BEFORE THAT, I HAD HURT MY

HAMSTRING.

AND MY MOM SAID, YOU KNOW,

WHEN YOU'RE HURT, MEDITATE.

I DID.

AND I QEPç KEPT QUOTING THE

BIBLE.

AND THEN I WENT TO THE

COMPETITION AND I DID REALLY

BAD.

AND I CAME BACK TO THE

HOTEL, AND I WAS, LIKE,

WHERE WAS GOD?

WHERE WAS HE?

HE WASN'T THERE?

AND MY MOM SAID, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TONIGHT,

BUT I KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN

FOR THAT.

AND THEN THAT YEAR I MADE

THE 2011 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS

AND BROUGHT HOME A TEAM GOLD

MEDAL.

AND I THINK AT THAT POINT MY

FAITH CAME INTO PLAY.

I REALLY Hç TO RELY ON THE

BIBLE AND JESUS TO BRING ME

OUT OF THAT HARD SITUATION.

Reporter: THAT WOULDN'T

BE THE LAST TIME.

AS THE OLYMPIC TRIALS

APPROACHED, GABBY MOVED TO

DES MOINES, IOWA, TO TRAIN.

BUT THE LONG HOURS AND TIME

AWAY FROM FAMILY WERE TAKING

A TOLL.

I GOT TO A REALLY DARK

PLACE, WHERE I ALMOST WANTED

TO QUIT THE SPORT OF

GYMNASTICS, RIGHT BEFORE THE

AND I SAID YOU CANNOT

QUIT.

WE'VE COME TOO FAR.

TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE ON THIS

JOURNEY WITH US.

SO MANY PEOPLE, OTHER THAN

OURSELVES, HAVE SACRIFICED.

I THINK THAT'S WHEN I HAD

TO RELY ON MY FAITH THE

MOST.

I WENT TO THE GYM AND SAID,

OKAY, IF I'M GOING TO GO TO

THE OLYMPICS, I'M GOING TO

DO IT BIG.

SO I PRAYED, MEDITATED ON

SCRIPTURES, AND I WENT BACK

TO THE GYM.ç

ANDç MY COACH SAID HE SAW

THIS, LIKE, FIRE IN MY

EYES.

Reporter: WITH THAT

GABBY AND HER TEAMMATES WON

THE U.S. CHAMPIONSHIP TO

QUALIFY FOR THE SUMMER GAMES

IN LONDON.

MOST DIDN'T EXPECT THAT

GABBY, NICKNAMED "THE FLYING

SQUIRREL" WOULD SOON MAKE

OLYMPIC HISTORY.

I DID HAVE A LOT OF

DOUBTERS.

THEY SAID, NO, SHE'S NOT

GOING TO MAKE IT.

SHE'LL PROBABLYç BEç MEDIOCRE,

BUT NOT ON TOP.

I DIDN'T WANT TO PROVE THEM

WRONG, BUT I WANTED TO PROVE

MYSELF RIGHT.

I WANTED TO BE, LIKE, I CAN

DO IT AND I WILL DO IT.

Reporter: AS THE

INDIVIDUAL COMPETITION

UNFOLDED, GABBY ROSE TO THE

TOP.

AND IN HER FINAL EVENT, SHE

CLINCHED THE GOLD.

I LOST IT.

IT WAS SUCH A SURREAL

FEELING.

ISç THIS@Y1e

HAPPENING?

CAN SOMEBODY PINCH ME?

CAN WE MAKE SURE THIS IS

ACTUALLY HAPPENING?

AND THEN I THOUGHT ABOUT ALL

OF THE THINGS WE HAD GONE

THROUGH TO GET THERE.

ALL OF THE YEARS OF

SACRIFICE.

ALL OF THE YEARS OF HARD

WORK.

Reporter: GABBY EARNED

ANOTHER GOLD WHEN SHE AND

THE FIERCE FIVE WON THE TEAM

COMPETITION.

I MEAN, A LOT OF

EMOTIONS.

Iç WAS SOç HAPPY.

I FINALLY THOUGHT IT WAS ALL

WORTH IT.

THE YEARS OF SACRIFICE AND

THE INJURIES.

DIFFICULT TIMES, TOUGH

TIMES, IT ALL PAID OFF.

Reporter: EVEN THOUGH

THE JOURNEY TO HER FIRST

OLYMPICS IS OVER, GABBY SAYS

PRAYER IS STILL WITH HER.

THE FAMILY NOW LIVES IN

CALIFORNIA, WHERE SHE AND

HER SIBLINGS ARE ALL

PURSUING THEIR DREAMS.çç

AND AT 18, GABBY AS

ENTHUSIASTIC AS EVER.

I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH

ANOTHER OLYMPICS.

I LOVE COMPETING.

I LOVE TRAINING.

BUT AFTER GYMNASTICS, I

DON'T KNOW.

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT, SO

WE'LL SEE.

Wendy: ISN'T THAT

AMAZING, GABBY ALMOST GAVE

UP RIGHT BEFORE THE

OLYMPICS.

IF YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT

THROWING IN THE TOWEL TODAY,

I ENCOURAGEç YOUç TO REMEMBER

GABBY.

REMEMBER THAT WITH GOD ALL

THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

AMAZING, THE POWER OF

PRAYER.

INSPIRING.

THAT YOUNG LADY, HER HOME IS

WHERE WE LIVE.

SHE IS FROM VIRGINIA BEACH.

AND NOW SHE IS IN

CALIFORNIA, BUT A TREMENDOUS

EXAMPLE.

WHAT A WONDERFUL ROLE MODEL

FOR EVERYBODY.

STILL AHEAD, WHAT IF YOU'VE

KIMBERLY FOSS IS GOING TO

OF THAT CASH.

AND LATER ONçç TODAY'S "700

CLUB," SHE'LL BE HERE WITH

US.

çççççç

WELCOME BACK TO

WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.ç!f5 E-MISSISSIPPI LAWMAKERS

HAVE

PASSED A BILL DESIGNED TO

PROTECT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

THE BILL SAYS GOVERNMENTS

CANNOT PUT A SUBSTANTIAL

BURDEN ON RELIGIOUS

PRACTICES.

SOME CRITICS WORRY THE

PROPOSED LAW COULD

DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE

STATE'S GAYS AND LESBIANS.

BUT SUPPORTERS SAY IT WILL

BE A VICTORY FOR THE FIRST

AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

WELL, ISRAEL UNVEILED A

RECENT DISCOVERY THAT HASçç

AMAZED ARCHEOLOGISTS.

IT IS A MONASTERY DATING TO

THE SIX AND CENTURY.

IT PROVIDES A GLIMPSE INTO

WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE BACK

THEN.

THEY CALL THE FIND

SPECTACULAR AND SAY THE

MOSAICS ARE UNUSUAL FOR THE

REGION.

IT INCLUDES INSCRIPTIONS IN

GREEK AND CELIAC.

WELL, YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TOç OURç WEBSITE,

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

çççç

çç

Pat: IT WAS SAID OF OUR

NEXT GUEST, QUOTE," SHE

PUTS THE HAY ON THE GROUND

WHERE THE GOAGHTS CA GOATS

CAN GET IT."

THAT'S WHAT KEN STEIN SAYS

ABOUT KIMBERLY FOSS AND HER

FINANCIAL AI%ñ

SHEç IS RIGHT ON THE MONEY.

Reporter: KIMBERLY FOSS

OWNS ONE OF THE TOP

FINANCIAL COMPANIES IN THE

COUNTRY.

BUT SHE WAS THE YOUNGEST OF

SIX GROWING UP IN A LOW

INCOME FAMILY.

THEY NEVER HAD MUCH, SO SHE

LEARNED HOW TO STAY OUT OF

DEBT, HARD FOR EVERYONE.

IN HER BOOK, "WEALTHY BY

DESIGN," KIMBERLY DRAWS ON

THOSE HAVK&EARNED LESSONS2

TO HELP US BE SMARTER ABOUT

OUR FUTURE.

Pat: WELL, THE BOOK IS

CALLED "WEALTHY BY DESIGN."

OUR NEXT GUEST IS A

FINANCIAL PLANNER.

A VERY ATTRACTIVE YOUNG LADY

WHO'S FATHER WAS A

CARPENTER.

KIMBERLY, IT IS GOOD TO HAVE

YOU BACK ON "THE 700 CLUB."

THANKS FOR INVITING ME.

Pat: WHAT IS GOING ON

IN YOUR LIFE.

WHAT ARE YOU TELLING PEOPLE

TO DO IN THIS PARTICULAR!f5 E-CLIMATE

OF FINANCIAL

TURMOIL?

IT'S CRAZY.

IT IS A CRAZY MARKET OUT

THERE.

BUT I THINK THE BEST ADVICE

FOR FOLKS OUT THERE BECAUSE

THE MARKET HAS DEPRECIATED

SO MUCH IS TO MAKE SURE THAT

THE ALLOCATION IN THROUGH

PORTFOLIO IS REALLY

CONDUCIVE TO WHAT THEIR

ABILITY TO TAKE RISK IS.

BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE MARKET

IS GOING TO ADJUST AT SOME

POINT, PAT, RIGHT?

Pat: YEAH.

AND SO WE NEED TO GO

THROUGH THE CROSSESç ANDç

ALWAYS THE PEAKS AND VALLEYS

TO REALLY GAIN WEALTH.

MAKE SURE YOUR ALLOCATION IS

SOMEWHERE WHERE YOU CAN

WEATHER THAT TROTH.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU TELL

PEOPLE?

IT DEPENDS ON YOUR AGE

AND WHERE YOU ARE AND YOUR

LIFE STAGE.

SO A PERSON THAT MAYBE IS IN

THEIR 50s, PERHAPS 50% IN

STOCKS AND 50% IN FIXED

INCOME.

WE WANT TO KEEP THE FIXED

INCOME VERY, VERY SHORT-TERM

BECAUSE, YOUç KNOWç WHAT?

INTEREST RATES ARE BEGINNING

TO RISE.

THE FED AND THE Q.E.s ARE

REDUCING, SO WE'RE

TAPERING.

SO WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE TOO

LONG IN YOUR PORTFOLIO, AS

FAR AS MATURITIES ARE

CONCERNED.

Pat: WHAT DO YOU THINK

ABOUT THIS JANET YELLEN, AND

THE NEW HEAD OF THE FED?

DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

çç YELLEN IS YELLING.

SHE IS GETTING ATTENTION.

I THINK SHE IS A

CONTINUATION OF BERNANKE.

I DON'T SEE HER DOING

ANYTHING TOO DRASTIC BECAUSE

SHE DOESN'T WANT TO UPSET

THE MARKETS.

AND THEY ARE CONTINUING WITH

THE Q.E.AND THE TAPERING,

WHICH IS A GOOD THING.

WHICH MEANS OUR ECONOMY IS

ON THE RIGHT TRACK IN

GROWTH, WHICH MEANS THEY'RE

GOING TO ACTUALLY START

TIGHTENING.

I THINK SHE SAIDç SOMETHING

Pat: YEAH.

WHAT ABOUT TAXES?

YOU'RE TELLING PEOPLE HOW TO

SAVE ON TAXES.

TAX DAY IS COMING UP PRETTY

QUICK.

WHAT DO YOU TELL PEOPLE?

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IN

THE GREEN ROOM, PEOPLE ARE

PAYING THEIR TAXES BUT

THEY'RE GETTING LESS BACK.

AND THEY'LL PROBABLY HAVE

MORE TAXES IN THE LONG RUN.

WE HAVE A HUGE DEFICIT WE

HAVE TO PAY OFF.

I TELL THE FOLKS, DO THE

NORMAL THINGS YOU CAN DO.ç5"Q

Q 401K, YOU HAD TO DO THAT

LAST YEAR.

BUT YOUR I.R.A. S, 5500, AND

OTHER THINGS LIKE H.S.A.,

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS, YOU

CAN PUT UP TO $6,425 PER

FAMILY IN.

AND YOU CAN PUT THAT IN YOUR

HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNT TO

KIND OF OFFSET THE MEDICAL

EXPENSES.

Pat: YOU'RE EMPLOYER

HAS TOçç HAVE A HEALTH SAVINGS

ACCOUNT AVAILABLE, OR NOT?

YOU NO.

YOU CAN DO YOUR OWN HEALTH

SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH

AN EMPLOYER, NECESSARILY.

LIKE A BLUE SHIELD OR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT HAS TO

HAVE AN ABILITY TO HAVE A

HEALTH CARE SAVINGS

ACCOUNT.

Pat: THEY'RE WONDERFUL

THINGS.

THEY ARE.

AND THE NICE THING ABOUT

THAT, PAT, IF YOU'RE OVER

65, THEN YOU CAN USE THAT

MONEY FOR OTHER THANçç MEDICAL

EXPENSES WITHOUT GETTING A

PENALTY.

SO YOU CAN USE IT FOR

ANYTHING.

SO, GOSH, YOU KNOW WHAT?

YOU CAN PUT IN GROWTH TAX

DEFERRED, AND IT IS KIND OF

LIKE ANOTHER I.R.A., SO TO

SPEAK.

Pat: DO YOU TALK ABOUT

KEO'S VERSUS I.R.A. S?

YES.ç'3

THE 401K IS $17,500.

IF YOU'RE OVER 50 YEARS OLD,

IT IS ANOTHER $5,000 ON TOP

OF THAT.

THAT'S TOO LATE FOR THIS

YEAR, BUT YOU CAN START FOR

2014.

AND ANOTHER WAY SOME FOLKS

ARE DOING IT, YOUR MEDICAL

EXPENSES, YOU CAN DEDUCT UP

TO 7.5% LAST YEAR OVER YOUR

A.G.I.

THAT'S GOING UP TO 10%,

UNLESS YOU'REç OVER 65, AND

IT IS STILL 7.5.

GOING TO THE DOCTOR, LASER

EYE SURGERY, THESE KIND OF

THINGS ARE ALL DEDUCTIBLE.

CLUSTER THOSE TOGETHER AND

SEE WHERE YOU LAND ON YOUR

TAXES.

YOU CAN STILL DO THAT FOR

DEDUCTIONS FOR THIS YEAR.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT WEALTHY

CLIENTS.

WHAT IS THE COMMON

DENOMINATOR YOU FIND AMONG

THESE PEOPLE?

YOU KNOW, I THINK A LOT

OFçç FOLKS -- WHAT I'VE

WITNESSED OVER 30 YEARS IS

THAT THEY LIVE BELOW THEIR

MEANS BUT WITHIN THEIR

NEEDS.

THAT IS ONE COMMONALITY THAT

I SEE.

THEY ALSO HAVE THE ABILITY,

THEY HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE, AND

THEY HAVE THE DEPTH TO BE

ABLE TO SUSTAIN THESE PEAKS

AND VALLEYS IN THE MARKETS.

AND THEY KNOW THAT THERE IS

NO SHORT-TERM FIX.

THEY KNOW THAT THEIR

LONG-TERM WEALTH

ACCUMULATION IS REALLY HOWö

WE BUILDç AND MAINTAIN

WEALTH.

SO THEY'RE ABLE TO GO

THROUGH THESE DIFFICULT

TIMES.

Pat: SO THEY'RE NOT

PLUNGING AND DOING

SPECULATION?

NO.

SPECULATION IS SHORT-TERM.

LONG-TERM WEALTH

ACCUMULATION.

YOU DON'T WANT TO FALL

VICTIM TO THE GREED OF THE

MARKET OR THE FEAR OF THE

MARKET.

AND THIS YEAR I THINK PEOPLE

ARE A LITTLE BIT TENTATIVE

BECAUSE WE'VE GROWN SO MUCH-LAST YEAR.ç

BUT I STILL THINK WE HAVE

ROOM TO GROW IN THIS

MARKET.

ICI.ORG, AND WE HAVE

$2.6 TRILLION IN THE MARKETS

EARNING 0.1%.

THERE IS STILL A LOT OF

MONEY ON THE SIDELINES.

IT HAS TO GO SOMEWHERE.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT THE

BUFFET PLAN?

DO YOU USE HIM, FOR EXAMPLE,

OR BEN GRAHAM OR ANY OF

THESEçç GURUS?

YEAH.

WARREN BUFFET IS OBVIOUSLY

COMPLETELY SUCCESSFUL, AND

HAS GAINED WEALTH IN KIND OF

THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY.

IINVESTING IN GOOD QUALITY,

DIVIDEND GROWTH COMPANIES.

AND EXXON IS ONE OF THOSE

I'M TALKING ABOUT.

IT HAS A 2.6% YIELD ON IT.

IT HAS GOOD APPRECIATION,

GOOD INCOME.

IT HASç ENERGY,ç AND WE'RE

GOING TO NEED THIS.

THESE ARE GOOD QUALITY

COMPANIES.

WARREN BUFFET PUT A TON OF

MONEY LAST YEAR INTO EXXON.

Pat: INTO EXXON?

YUP.

Pat: AND THE RAILROAD,

WHICH IS A BIG DEAL.

SO THERE IS A TIP FOR

EXXON.

Pat: HER BOOK IS "BY

DESIGN." HOW IS THE BOOK

GOING?

IT IS FANTASTIC.

WE SOLD OUT ALREADY,çND, OF3x3

COURSE, IT MADE THE "NEW

YORK TIMES" BEST-SELLER'S

LIST, WHICH IS A PLUS.

AND WE'RE ON OUR SECOND

PRINTING, AND I'M WORKING ON

A SECOND ONE AS WE SPEAK.

Pat: THIS IS AVAILABLE

ON AMAZON OR WHEREVER BOOKS

ARE SOLD.

KIMBERLY FOSS, "WEALTH BY

DESIGN," AND IT IS SO GREAT

TO SEE YOU.

IT IS GOOD TO BE BACK.

THANTHANK YOU SO MUCH.

Pat: WENDY?

Wendy: UP NEXT, WEç HAVE

YOUR

E-MAILS.

ANDREA SAYS, "MY HUSBAND AND

I ARE MARRIED 22 YEARS, BUT

HE SPENDS WAY TOO MUCH TIME

AWAY FROM HOME AND SEEMS AT

TIMES TO TAKE ME FOR

GRANTED.

I THOUGHT ABOUT CHEATING ON

HIM.

MY KIDS ARE GROWN UP, AND

I'M TIRED OF HIS

ABSENTEEISM.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?"

STAY TUNED FORçç PAT'S ADVICE

AND MUCH MORE AFTER THIS.

çççççççç

Wendy: WELL,ç ANDREA --

WE'REç GOING TO JUMP RIGHT

INTO E-MAIL.

I WAS READY TO GO.

ANDREA WRITES, "MY HUSBAND

AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED 22

YEARS, AND HE SPENDS WAY TOO

MUCH TIME AWAY FROM HOME.

AND SEEMS TO TAKE ME FOR

GRANTED.

ALL THE YEARS OF MY

MARRIAGE, CHEATING HAS NEVER

CROSSED MY MIND.

BUT I THOUGHT ABOUT IT

LATELY.

MY KIDS ARE GROWING UP, AND

I'M GROWING VERY TIRED OF

HISçç ABSENTEEISM."

ANY ADVICE FOR ANDREA?

Pat: ALL I CAN THINK IS

TELL HIM YOU WANT TO TAKE A

VACATION, AND GO TO SOME

EXOTIC PLACE, AND BLOW A FEW

DOLLARS ON SOMETHING SWEET,

KAYAKS, WHATEVER YOU LIKE TO

DO.

IF HE LIKES TO HIKE, HUNT OR

FISH, THE TWO OF YOU GET OUT

TOGETHER AND GET WITH IT.

THIS IS TYPICAL IN MARRIAGES

OF 25 OR 30 YEARS.

PEOPLE GET A LITTLE BITçç

BORED WITH EACH OTHER, AND

THEY WANT A LITTLE

EXCITEMENT.

THE ONE EXCITEMENT YOU DON'T

WANT IS AN EXTRA-MARITAL

AFFAIR.

I DOUBT IF YOU'RE HUSBAND IS

YOUR HUSBAND IS HAVING ONE.

SAY, DEAR, LET'S TAKE A

CREWS TO ALASKA, GO DOWN THE

RINE RIVER.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS YOU

CAN DO.

THE TWO OF YOU GET OUT AND

HAVE SOME FUNç Tj()Q).

Wendy: ALL RIGHT.

GREAT ADVICE.

SYLVANA SAYS, "I HAVE BIBLES

IN DIFFERENT VERSIONS, SUCH

AS N.I.V., AND NEW KING

JAMES AND OTHERS, AND MY SON

WAS CONCERNED THAT I USE

THESE BIBLES BECAUSE HE SAYS

THEY ARE CORRUPT.

I HAVE SINCE ORDERED AN

AUTHORIZED KING JAMES

BIBLE.

MY PASTOR DOES NOT PREACH

OUT OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE,

EITHER.

WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO D]?"

Pat: I'LLç TELL YOU,

YOUR SON HAS GOTTEN A HOLD

OF SOME ULTRA FUNDAMENTALIST

THAT DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE IS

TALKING ABOUT.

I LOVE THE PHRASEOLOGY OF

THE KING JAMES, AND IT IS

EASY TO REMEMBER.

HOWEVER, THE KING JAMES WAS

TRANSLATED FROM A TEXT

CALLED THE TEXTUS REççCEPTO,

AND THAT WAS IN THE

1600s -- WHATEVER, IN THAT

TIMEFRAME.

MORE AND MORE, WE'RE GOING

TO BACK TO THE SO-CALLED

CODE OF SEAS, BACK AS CLOSE

AS WE CAN TO THE AUTOGRAPHS,

THE ORIGINALS, AND SOMETHING

LIKE THE NEW HUNDRED

NATIONAL VERSION OF THE

AMERICAN STANDARD AND OTHERS

ARE MUCH, MUCH CLOSER TO THE

TRUE GREEK AND THEçç HEBREW.

NONE OF THEM HAVE THE BEAUTY

OF THE KING JAMES, BUT THERE

ARE STUFF IN THE KING JAMES

THAT ISN'T ACCURATE.

THEY SAY IF IT WAS GOOD

ENOUGH FOR

THE APOSTLE PAUL,

IT WAS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.

BUT HE DIDN'T WRITE THE KING

JAMES.

SO YOUR SON IS INTO

SOMETHING HE DOESN'T KNOW

WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Wendy: I LOVE THE NEW

KING JAMES BECAUSE YOU

RETAIN SOME OF THE BEAUTIFUL

POETRY.

Pat: BEAUTIFUL.

BUT THE NEW AMERICAN

STANDARDç IS0P =1e CLOSER

TO THE GREEK.

THE N.I.V. IS THE ONE I

USE.

AND IT IS TRANSLATED BY

EVANGELICAL SCHOLARS WHO

LOVE THE LORD, LOVE THE

WORD, AND HAVE DONE A REAL

GOOD JOB OF RESEARCH.

Wendy: NEGA WRITES,

"WHY WHEN JESUS PERFORMS

MANY OF HIS MIRACLES HE GOES

TELLS, GO AND TELL NO ONE.ç

INç MARK 5, JESUS RAISED THE

DAUGHTER OF JARUS FROM BED,

BUT AGAIN, TELLS THAT NO ONE

SHOULD KNOW.

IN MARK 7, JESUS HEALS A MAN

THAT IS DEAF AND MUTE AND

ALSO TELLS THE CROWD TO TELL

NO ONE.

AND WHEN HE PERFORMS

MIRACLES FOR HIS DISCIPLES,

AND THEY SAID GOD, HE TELLS

THEM TOç TELL NOç ONE.

WHY DOES HE DO THAT?"

Pat: JESUS DIDN'T WANT

TO BE MOBBED.

IF SOMEBODY SAYS, THAT MAN

JUST HEALED ME, THEN THERE

WILL BE 10,000 PEOPLE

SWARMING ALL OVER HIM.

AND HE DIDN'T WANT THAT.

THERE WAS A TIME FOR HIM TO

SHOW HE IS THE MESSIAH, AND

THAT CAME AFTER HIS

CRUCIFIXION.

BUT HE KNEW HE HAD TO

SUFFER, AND HE KNEW HE HAD

TO DIE, AND HE KNEW HE WAS

GOING TO BE RAISED FROM THE

DEAD.ç-AND JOHN'S PLAN HAD TO BE

WORKED OUT.

AND HE DIDN'T WANT A

MONSTEROUS CROWD.

THEY CAME TO TRY TO MAKE HIM

A KING.

AND HE SAID, NO, NO.

I KNOW WHAT'S IN THE HEARTS

OF PEOPLE, AND I DON'T WANT

TO TRUST MYSELF TO THEM.

THAT'S WHAT IT WAS ALL

ABOUT.

HE DIDN'T WANT A MOB SCENE.

LIKE AT THESE CELEBRITIES

TODAY.

WHO WANTS TO BE SURROUNDED

BY A LOT OF PAPARAZZI.

IT IS THE SAME THING IN

JESUS' DAY.

Wendy: ABSOLUTELY.çç

BECKY WRITES, "YESTERDAY I

CAME ACROSS A SHOW ABOUT

ANGELS.

I AGREED WITH SOME OF WHAT

THEY WERE SAYING.

THERE WERE SOME I DID NOT

AGREE WITH, LIKE WE ALL HAVE

GUARDIAN ANGELS, AND THAT WE

HAVE MANY ANGELS FOR EACH OF

US, ALL AROUND.

AND THEY ALSO SAID WE SHOULD

PRAY TO ANGELS FOR HELP."

Pat: UTTER NONSENSE.

THE BIBLE SAYS THEY'RE

LOOKING AFTER THE HEIRS OF

SALVATION.ç

TO MYç KNOWLEDGE, THERE IS NO

COUNTRY TO BACK UP THE FACT

THAT EVERYBODY HISTORY A,

QUOTE,"GUARDIAN ANGEL."

THERE ARE ANGELS LOOKING

AFTER US.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PRAY

TO ANGELS OR TO WORSHIP THE

HEAVENLY BODIES OR ANY OF

THAT.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO WORSHIP

GOD HIMSELF.

WE'RE SUPPOSED TO PRAY TO

THE FATHER THROUGH JESUS IN

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO PRAY

TO ANGELS.

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE

LOOKING FOR THE SO-CALLEDçç

NOSTICS, WHICH CAME FROM

NOSIS KNOWLEDGE.

THEY THOUGHT THE WAY TO GET

TO HEAVEN WAS TO IDENTIFY

THESE BEINGS TO GET TO

HEAVEN.

IF YOU COULD IDENTIFY THIS

GUY, YOU COULD NAME HIM AND

GET UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

THAT'S ALL NONSENSE.

THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE

PLAYING GAMES WITH ALL OF

THIS ANGELIC STUFF DON'Tç

KNOWç WHAT THEY'RE TALKING

ABOUT.

YOU CAN ASK THE LORD, AND

SAY SEND THE ANGELS.

YOU CAN ASK GOD, SEND THE

ANGELS, LORD.

WE NEED HELP.

SEND THE ANGELS.

BUT YOU DON'T PRAY FOR THE

ANGELS --

Wendy: DON'T PRAY TO

THE ANGELS.

YOU CAN PRAY FOR ANGELS TO

COME.

Pat: GOD SAID, I'LL

SEND MY ANGELS WITH YOU.

AND MOSESçç SAID, UNLESS YOU

GO, I DON'T WANT TO GO.

DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS

NEW AGE AND ALL OF IT.

DON'T DO IT.

Wendy: THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

GOOD ANSWERS.

WELL, FOR MANY AMERICANS,

THE WORKDAY STARTS AT 9:00,

AND ENDS AT 5:00.

IN HONDURAS, WE MET A WOMAN

WHO WAS FORCED TO START HER

DAY MUCH EARLIER, AND STILL

HAD TO WORKç DEEP INTOHE

NIGHT.

Reporter: RANA KNOWS A

LOT ABOUT HARD WORK.

NEARLY EVERY DAY, FROM 7:00

IN THE MORNING TO WAY INTO

THE NIGHT, SHE WORKS AS A

SEAMSTRESS.

BUT SHE HAD A PROBLEM.

HER HOUSE IS TOO SMALL, AND

EIGHT PEOPLE HAD TO LIVE

THERE.

AND IT IS ALSO WHERE RANA

HAD TO SEW 12 TO 15 HOURS A

DAY.

THE HARDEST PARTçç WAS

KNOWING I WASN'T LETTING MY

HUSBAND OR MY CHILDREN GET

REST.

I HAD TO LEAVE THE LIGHT

ON.

Reporter: HER HUSBAND

ONLY EARNS ABOUT $6 TO $8 A

WEEK, SO RANA HAS TO

SUBSEQUENT THE INCOME.

THERE WERE DAYS WHEN I

SAW MY WIFE WORKING INTO THE

NIGHT.ç

ANDç IT HURT BECAUSE AS A

MAN, I'M THE ONE

RESPONSIBLE.

Reporter: ONE DAY

SOMEONE STOPPED AT THEIR

DOOR.

IT WAS HER PASTOR AND

SOMEONE FROM "OPERATION

BLESSING."

A SHORT TIME LATER,

"OPERATION BLESSING" BUILT

AND DEDICATED THIS SMALL

WORKSHOP RIGHT NEXT TO HER

HOME.

AND WE ALSO GAVE RANA EXTRA

FABRIC TO EXPAND HER

BUSINESS.

NOW I HAVE A PLACE WHERE

I CAN DISPLAY THEIR WORK, A

PLACE WHERE I CAN ALSO TEACH

WOMEN WHAT I HAVE LEARNEDç

ABOUTç SEWING.

Reporter: RANA'S SEWING

BUSINESS IS SO SUCCESSFUL,

SHE NOW MAKES MORE MONEY

WORKING LESS HOURS.

AND THAT GIVES HER MORE TIME

TO SPEND WITH THE CHILDREN.

I THANK GOD THAT

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS A

BLESSING.

THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY

DREAM A REALITY.

Wendy: ISN'T THAT

AMAZING?

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP

PEOPLE LIKE HER ALL OVER THE

WORLD, IT'S SO EASY.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO TO

YOUR PHONEç RIGHTç NOW AND

JUST SAY, YES, I WANT TO BE

A MEMBER OF "THE 700 CLUB."

HOW MUCH IS THAT?

65 CENTS A DAY, $20 A MONTH

TO DO SO MUCH GOOD IN THE

WORLD.

WHEN WE ALL DO IT TOGETHER,

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

AGAIN, 1-800-759-0700.

AND WHEN YOU JOIN, WE HAVE A

SPECIAL GIFT FOR YOU.

IT IS GORDON'S NEW TEACHING

CALLED "VISIONS OF THE

NIGHT."

THIS IS A POWERFUL

TEACHING.

IF YOU'RE A DREAMER LIKE ME,

YOUç NA" TO GET AHOLD OF

THIS.

PAT, WE HAVE, AS YOU KNOW, A

WONDERFUL GROUP OF PRAYER

COUNSELLORS HERE.

Pat: YES.

Wendy: AND WE HAVE SOME

ANSWERS TO PRAYERS.

GINNY FROM OREGON HEARD YOU

SAY, PAT, THAT SOMEONE HAS

BEEN SUFFERING FOR A LONG

TIME WITH PAIN IN THEIR

RIGHT HAND AND WAS BEING

HEALED.

SHE CLAIMED THAT WORD AND

WAS HEALED.

THAT'S GINNY.

MILAçç OF MT. PLEASANT, NORTH

CAROLINA, HEARD TERRY GIVE A

WORD ABOUT LESIONS IN HER

MOUTH AND TONGUE BEING

HEALED.

SHE CLAIMED THE WORD AND

THEY WERE HEALED.

AND CATHY HEARD YOU, PAT,

GIVE A WORD OF KNOWLEDGE

ABOUT A FUNGUS IN THEIR

LUNGS BEING HEALED.çç

HER BROTHER WAS IN THE

HOSPITAL WITH A FUNGAL

INFECTION, AND HE HAS

IMPROVED AND WILL BE

RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL.

Pat: PRAISE THE LORD.

TELEPHONES ARE STILL

AVAILABLE, 1-800-759-0700.

IT IS EASY TO REMEMBER.

AND WE LOVE TO HEAR THESE

TESTIMONIES.

WE LEAVE YOU WITH TODAY'S

POWER MINUTE FROM PSALM 145,

VERSUS 15çç AND 16: "THE EYES

OF ALL LOOK EXPECTANTLY AT

YOU.

AND YOU GIVE THEM THEIR FOOD

IN GOOD SEASON.

YOU OPEN YOUR HAND AND

SATISFY THE DESIRE OF EVERY

LIVING THING."

GOD IS GOOD.

HE LOVES YOU.

WELL, TOMORROW SCOTT ROSS IS

GOING TO BE INTERVIEWING THE

AUTHOR OF "NOAH," AND YOU'LL

GET THE REAL STORY OF WHAT

THEY WERE DOING.ç2

AND I DON'T RECOMMEND IT.

BUT I RECOMMEND SCOTT,

THOUGH.

WE'LL TALK ABOUT THAT

TOMORROW.

FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON, AND

WE WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
