ORGANIZATION.

THEY HAVE ALLOWED BUREAUCRACY TO

TAKE HOLD.

THE USUAL COVER YOUR

BACKSIDE-KIND OF BUREAUCRATIC

ACTIVITY, YOU DON'T DO THAT WITH

VETERANS.

YOU GET THEIR CARE AND GET IT

NIGERIANS PRESIDENT HOPE THE

GIRLS WILL BE FOUND.

JINDAL TOLD GRADUATES OF LIBERTY

UNIVERSITY SUNDAY QUOTE, THE NEW

PEOPLE OF FAITH AND MUCH OF

AMERICAN CULTURE HAS BECOME

SECULAR.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM INVENTED

AMERICA AND FAITH SUSTAINS IT.

IF GOD IS WITH US, WHO CAN BE

AGAINST US?

JINDAL SPOKE ABOUT HOW HE CAME

TO FAITH IN CHRIST, YOU CAN READ

IT ON "THE BRODY FILE."

MESSY MOTHER'S DAY ACROSS THE

WEST AND MIDWEST.

RESIDENTS CLEANING UP AFTER

SPRINGTIME SNOWSTORMS IN ONE

AREA AND DESTRUCTIVE TORNADOS IN

ANOTHER AND EXCESSIVE HEAT.

REPORTER: THIS DOESN'T LOOK

LIKE SPRING, SNOW IN COLORADO

AND WYOMING AND UNLEASHING HAVOC

IN UTAH.

GUZ DOZENS OF SNOWPLOWS IN

DENVER.

MIDWEST SAW 11 TORNADOS TOUCHING

DOWN IN NEBRASKA, KANSAS AND

MISSOURI.

ONE OF THEM LEVELLED SMALL TOWN

ORRIK MISSOURI.

RESIDENTS HADN'T SEEN A TWISTER

YOU DON'T EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN TO

YOU.

REPORTER: OTHER PARTS ARE

EXPERIENCING AN EARLY HEAT WAVE.

CALIFORNIA, THE WARMTH IS

BRINGING POWERFUL DAMAGING WINDS

THAT TOPPLED TREES AND CRUSHED

CARS.

ANGER AND CRYING.

WE ARE BLESSED THOUGH, WE HAVE

GOOD HOMEOWNER'S AND CAR

INSURANCE.

REPORTER: TEMPERATURES ARE

SWELTERING ACROSS CALIFORNIA AND

COULD REACH TRIPLE DIGITS.

WHIPPING WINDS AND DRY

CONDITIONS ARE CREATING A HIGH

FIRE DANGER.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

REPORTER: 'OBAMACARE' IS

FACING LEGAL CHALLENGES IN

COURT, HEALTH CARE LAW VIOLATES

THE BELIEF OF MANY RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS.

PAUL STRAND HAS THE STORY.

PAUL: MANY RELIGIOUS

ORGANIZATIONS BACK PRIESTS FOR

LIFE.

ALLOWING THEIR

INSURANCES TO PAY FOR

CONTRACEPTION.

PRO-LIVES STAND IS THEIR REASON

FOR EXISTENCE.

THEY ARE BEING ORDERED BY THE

GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT THE SYSTEM

THAT WILL GIVE AWAY THIS

CONTRACEPTION FOR FRY.

WHEN A GROUP LIKE PRIESTS FOR

LIFE IS ATTACKED, THE PENDULUM

HAS SWUNG SO FAR, A FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT COULD MANDATE A GROUP

OF PRIESTS.

THEY DON'T HAVE TO PAY IF

AND ALLOWS A

THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE TO COVER

IT.

FATHER FRANK SAYS THEY ARE

COOPERATING WITH EVIL.

THEY WANT US TO FILL OUT A

FORM, YES, WE OBJECT, THEN THEY

ARE USING THAT AS THE

AUTHORIZATION FOR THEM TO DO

WHAT SHOULD NOT BE DONE.

PAUL: HE SAYS THEY MUST PLAY

BALL OR FINES OF $100 A DAY ON

EACH OF THE 50 EMPLOYEES.

WHEN THE RELIGIOUS BELIEVER

IS FACED WITH THE HOBSON'S

CHOICE, VIOLATE YOUR FAITH OR

PAY CRIPPLING FINES.

THAT AS A MATTER OF LAW IS A

SUBSTANTIAL BURDEN.

PAUL: THE PACIFIC LEGAL

FOUNDATION TOOK ON 'OBAMACARE'

REPRESENTING MATT SISAL WHO

GOVERNMENT.TO THE

MAKES THE WAY 'OBAMACARE'

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

ALL REVENUE RAISING BILLS

MUST ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

THIS BILL, 'OBAMACARE' WITH ALL

OF ITS TAX RAISING PROVISIONS

ORIGINATED IN THE SENATE.

UNCONSTITUTIONAL

PROBLEM.

PAUL: PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WA WASHINGTON.

REPORTER: NEARLY HALF A

BILLION DOLLARS IN FEDERAL MONEY

HAS BEEN SPENT DEVELOPING FAILED

'OBAMACARE' EXCHANGES IN FOUR

STATES.

PAT, THAT COULD GO MUCH HIGHER.

PAT: THIS WHOLE FIASCO MAY

DECIMATE THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

THE REPUBLICANS SNATCH DEFEAT

FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY.

IF THEY DON'T SCREW UP DURING

THESE NEXT FEW HANDS.

THE THING THAT IS INTERESTING

ABOUT THIS FOUNDATION, THEY ARE

CLEVER LAWYERS.

WHEN THIS CAME BEFORE THE

SUPREME COURT, IT WAS BASED ON

THE COMMERCE CLAUSE AND THE

ARGUMENTS WERE THE GOVERNMENT

DOESN'T HAVE THE RIGHT, CONGRESS

DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO

BURDEN PEOPLE'S COMMERCE AND GET

INVOLVED.

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH POWER IN THE

CONSTITUTION TO ALLOW THAT TO

HAPPEN.

JUDGE ROBERTS SAID IT REALLY

ISN'T COMMERCE THAT WE ARE

TALKING ABOUT.

IT IS A TAX.

THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO PUT A TAX

ON.

THEREFORE HIS POINT OF VIEW IN

ONE VOTE SAVED 'OBAMACARE.'

BUT WHAT HASN'T BEEN BROUGHT OUT

IS WHAT WAS SAID IN THAT PIECE

BEFORE, ALL REVENUE BILLS HAVE

TO ORIGINATE IN THE HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES.

IF IN DEED, 'OBAMACARE'

ORIGINATED IN THE SENATE, IT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL ON ITS FACE.

THIS IS THE KIND OF ARGUMENT

THAT THE GUYS AT THE SUPREME

COURT WOULD LOVE TO GET THEIR

TEETH INTO.

JOHN ROBERTS CAN SAY YEAH, IN

DEED, IT IS A TAX BUT THEY HAD

IT IN THE WRONG CHAMBER.

THEREFORE IT IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

HIS COLLEAGUES WOULD SAY JOHN,

YOU ARE RIGHT.

VERY INTERESTING WHAT IS BEING

DONE.

OUR HEALTH SYSTEM IS BEING

DECIMATED BY THIS NON SENSE.

AS I SAY THE DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES

ARE DECIMATED IN THE FALL UNLESS

SOMETHING AMAZING HAPPENS

BETWEEN NOW AND VOTING TIME.

REPORTER: NEARLY 50 MILLION

TIMES LAST YEAR, FINDING

REPORTED IN THE LONDON TELEGRAPH

CITING FROM THE LONDON

JOURNALISM OF PRACTITIONERPRACTITIONERS.

THE GROWING DEMANDS OF THE AGING

POPULATION AND SOME FEAR FACING

A MAJOR ILLNESS BECAUSE OF THEIR

WORKLOAD.

EUROPEANS ARE ALSO GROWING WIDER

AT THE WAISTLINE.

WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AND UK

HEALTH REPORT SAYS OBESITY IS ON

THE RISE PROJECTED TO REACH 90%

OF MEN BY 2030.

THE REASON, BAD DIETS WITH TOO

MUCH FAT AND SUGAR AND NOT

ENOUGH EXERCISE.

PAT, THERE IS A SAYING MISERY

LOV

LOVES COMPANY.

PAT: YOU HAVE MCDONALDS ALL

OVER THE PLACE AND EXPORTED HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP AND THE

BASIS OF MANY SOFT DRINKS.

INSTEAD OF DRINKING WINE, THEY

ARE DRINKING COCA-COLA AND

PEPSI.

YOU COUPLE THAT WITH HAMBURGERS

AND ALL THE STUFF THAT GOES

ALONG, PEOPLE GET FAT.

TERRY, IT IS DISGUSTING.

TERRY: THERE IS ALSO, WE

HAVE TALKED ABOUT ABOUT THIS, AN

ADDICTION TO THOSE THAT CREATES

IN YOUR SYSTEM.

YOU WANT MORE AND MORE AND MORE.

HOWEVER, I THINK PEOPLE ARE

BECOMING MORE SAVVY AND

CONSUMERS ARE CHOOSING DIFFERENT

KINDS OF FOOD AND WANTING TO EAT

DIFFERENTLY.

PAT: THEY WANT TO, BUT THEY

ARE NOT.

TERRY: SOME AREN'T.

SOME OF OUR FOOD SOURCE IS

TARNISHED WITH THE WAY IT IS

GROWN AND THE WAY ANIMALS ARE

FED.

PAT: PEOPLE WENT FOR FRESH

VEGETABLES AND FRUITS IT WOULD

BE FINE.

THEY DON'T.

EVERYTHING IS QUICK AND WANT TO

GO BY THE FAST FOOD JOINT.

THERE IT ALL IS.

IT MAKES YOU FAT.

TERRY: BE WISE WITH WHAT YOU

EAT.

PAT: AMEN.
