The Brody File: Firing Back - July 31, 2014

This week on The Brody File, a conversation with former congressman Todd Akin. He's firing back at his critics after conservatives turned on him during his failed 2012 senate race. Also, Israel and Hamas are firing back at each other. We get ... ... Read Transcript


David: ON "THE BRODY

FILE" THIS WEEK, HE'S BACK!

REPUBLICAN TODD AIKINS, THE

MAN SOME CONSERVATIVES WANT

TO GO AWAY FOREVER.

BUT HE IS NOT GOING

ANYWHERE.

A LOOK AT HIS CYNICAL BATTLE

WITH FELLOW REPUBLICANS.

I FELT A SENSE OF PEACE,

LIKE I WAS PROTECTED, BUT IT

SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS THIS

INTENSE WAR BETWEEN GOOD AND

EVIL.

David: PLUS...INSIDE A

GROW HILLARY ORGANIZATION,

DETERMINED TO SET THE RECORD

STRAIGHT ABOUT HER.

WE'RE HELPING TO KEEP THE

TRUTH OUT THERE.

IF THE RECORD NEEDS

CORRECTING, WE CORRECT IT.

David: PLUS, WHAT DO

HERCULES AND JESUS HAVE IN

COMMON?

AND A JUKEBOX HERO WHO WENT

FROM HEAVY METAL TO HEAVY

JESUS.

I FINALLY WAS BROKEN

ENOUGH TO CRY OUT TO GOD FOR

HELP.

David: WE LOVE JESUS,

TOO.

WHAT A SHOCK.

WE'RE "THE BRODY FILE."

WE'RE NEXT.

*

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

WE'RE BROUGHT TO IN HIGH

DEFINITION TELEVISION,

WHICH, OF COURSE, IS

EXTREMELY SCARY WHEN "THE

BRODY FILE" IS NOT WEARING

MAKEUP.

ACTUALLY, EVEN WITH MAKEUP.

ANYHOW, THAT'S MY OWN

ISSUE.

THIS WEEK WITH

CONSERVATIVES, WE BEGIN WITH

AN ACTUAL CONSERVATIVE THAT

MANY CONSERVATIVES LOVE TO

HATE.

HIS NAME, TODD AIKEN.

THE FORMER REPUBLICAN

CONGRESSMAN FROM MISSOURI IS

OUT WITH HIS NEW BOOK,

CALLED "FIRING BACK, TAKING

ON THE PARTY BOSSES AND

MEDIA TO PROTECT OUR FAITH

AND FREEDOM."

BOY, THAT'S A LONG TITLE.

IN CASE YOU DON'T REMEMBER

THE AIKEN CONTROVERSY, HE

USED THE WORD "LEGITIMATE

RAPE."

HE BASICALLY SAID IF A WOMAN

IS A VICTIM OF LEGITIMATE

RAPE, SHE IS UNLIKELY TO GET

PREGNANT BECAUSE HER BODY

HAS WAYS TO SHUT THINGS

DOWN.

WELL, HE DIDN'T MEAN IT THAT

WAY.

IT GAVE DEMOCRATS AN OPENING

TO FORM THEIR WAR ON WOMEN'S

STORY LINE.

AND IT TURNED MANY

REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVES

AGAINST HIM.

HERE HE IS HAVING HIS SAY,

TWO YEARS LATER, ON "THE

BRODY FILE" SET.

IT WAS AN INTERNATIONAL

BLOWUP THAT OCCURRED, A VERY

INTERESTING POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN, AND WE THOUGHT, WE

CAN TELL THAT STORY, BUT IN

THE PROCESS, I CAN TALK

ABOUT GOOD IDEAS AND BAD

IDEAS.

BUT MY DETRACTORS SAY THEY

THINK THE BOOK IS ABOUT

REVENGE AND THIS AND THAT.

THERE IS A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO

DON'T WANT THE BOOK TO COME

OUT.

BUT MY THOUGHT WAS,

OVERALL -- AND THIS IS PART

OF THE DECISION OF DECIDING

TO STAY IN THE RACE WHEN THE

PARTY MONGERS WERE BASICALLY

TRYING TO CRUSH US, AND THAT

WAS I DON'T THINK WE EVER

ADVANCE GOOD IDEAS UNLESS

WE'RE WILLING TO STAND UP TO

AND FIGHT BAD IDEAS.

MY THOUGHT IS, THIS BOOK IS

AN ATTEMPT TO TELL THE

TRUTH.

David: FROM A

SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE, DID

YOU FEEL LIKE THIS WAS KIND

OF IN THE MIDDLE OF A

SPIRITUAL WARFARE BATTLE?

IT SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS A

LOT GOING ON FROM THE

SPIRITUAL PERSPECTIVE DURING

THAT TIME?

IT IS FUNNY YOU'VE ASKED

THAT QUESTION, BECAUSE I'VE

BEEN ON HOW MANY INTERVIEWS,

NO ONE HAS ASKED THAT

QUESTION.

David: LEAVE IT TO

ME.

I'M GOING TO TELL YOU

SOMETHING I HAVEN'T SHARED,

FIRST OFF, LET ME SAY I

DIDN'T, AFTER THE INTERVIEW,

EVEN KNOW ANYTHING HAD GONE

WRONG.

BECAUSE I SAID LEGITIMATE

RAPE.

BECAUSE NO RAPE IS

LEGITIMATE.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

THAT'S A LAW ENFORCEMENT

TERM, WHICH MEANS A

LEGITIMATE CLAIM OF RAPE.

I WAS TALKING LATER ABOUT A

WOMEN'S BODY SHUTTING DOWN.

I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE

EFFECT OF STRESS ON

PREGNANCY.

AND THERE HAVE BEEN SOME

STUDIES ON THAT.

BUT IT WAS GETTING TO THE

FINAL QUESTION.

AND THE QUESTION IS: IS A

CHILD CONCEIVED IN RAPE, IS

HIS LIFE TO BE PROTECTED?

SHOULD HE HAVE A RIGHT TO

LIFE THE SAME AS A CHILD WHO

IS CONCEIVED IN LOVE?

THAT WAS THE HEART OF THE

QUESTION.

NOW, AFTER THE WHOLE THING

BLEW UP, AND IT TOOK MAYBE A

WEEK OR TWO, AND IT WAS JUST

AMAZING.

I MEAN IT WASN'T JUST

NATIONAL, IT WAS

INTERNATIONAL NEWS BECAUSE

PEOPLE WERE SAYING I SAID

SOMETHING MOST OF THE TIME I

DIDN'T EVEN SAY, AND

ASSIGNING ME MOTIVES THAT I

DIDN'T EVEN HAVE.

SO WHAT DID THAT FEEL LIKE?

IT IS GOING TO BE SORT OF AN

ODD ANALOGY, BUT I'LL SHARE

IT.

I FELT AS IF I WERE PEACEFUL

AS IF I WERE IN A

PARACHUTE.

I FELT ON EACH SIDE OF ME

WERE THESE POWERLESS CUMULUS

CLOUDS.

ON ONE SIDE, GOOD, AN AND

ON THE OTHER SIDE, EVIL.

AND I'M THINKING, HOW DID I

GET HERE SO FAST.

David: THAT WAS TODD

AIKEN ON "THE BRODY FILE."

THE FIELD OF REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATES SEEMS LIKE IT IS

GOING TO BE A LARGE ONE,

FOLKS.

I MANE, LOO MEAN, LOOK AT

ALL OF THE CANDIDATES THAT

COULD PO POP UP: MARCO

RUBIO, MIKE HUCKABEE, JEP

JEB BUSH, CHRIS CHRISTIE,

AND THE LIST GOES ON.

ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE?

HILLARY CLINTON.

AND BECAUSE SHE IS ALL BY

HERSELF, SHE HAS A BIG

POLITICAL TARGET ON HER

BACK.

SHE IS SMART AND TOUGH AS

NAILS, AND EVERYONE KNOWS

SHE COULD BE THE FIRST WOMAN

PRESIDENT IN HISTORY.

SO MANY CONSERVATIVES ARE

ALREADY TRYING TO BRING UP

ANYTHING THEY CAN TO TAKE

HER DOWN.

SO SOME HILLARY CLINTON

SUPPORTERS ARE STEPPING UP

TO DEFEND HER.

WE NOW HAVE A NEW PROJECT,

AND IT IS CALLED "CORRECT

THE RECORD."

THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE

LEADING RAPID RESPONSE AND

RESEARCH ORGANIZATION

FOCUSED ON ELECTING A

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT IN

2016.

OF COURSE, CLINTON IS THE

CLEAR FRONT-RUNNER.

THE ORGANIZERS SAY THE POINT

IS TO CORRECT THE RECORD AND

STOP THE SPREADING OF

MISINFORMATION ABOUT HER AND

OTHER POTENTIAL CANDIDATES.

ON THE WEBSITE, THEY LIST

TALKING POINTS DEFENDING AND

EXPLAINING CLINTON'S HUGE

SPENDING FEES.

AND THAT SHE IS SUPPOSEDLY

OUT OF TOUCH.

AND THEY WANT TO MIKE SURE

MAKE SURE HER INNER ORBIT

HAS ALL OF THE FACTS

STRAIGHT.

WE EXIST TO HELP ELECT A

DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT IN

2016.

ASSUMING AT THE END OF THE

DAY, SECRETARY CLINTON WILL

CHOOSE TO RUN.

WE'RE HELPING KEEP THE TRUTH

OUT THERE.

IF THE RECORD NEEDS

CORRECTING, WE CORRECT IT.

HILLARY CLINTON IS THE TYPE

OF PERSON THAT CREATES REAL

LOYALTY AROUND HER, PEOPLE

WHO REALLY CARE ABOUT HER.

THOSE ARE PEOPLE WE ARE ALSO

LOOKING TO MAKE SURE THEY

KNOW WHAT THE FACTS ARE.

THEY WATCH THE NEWS, TOO.

AND READ THE NEWS.

AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE

THEY, TOO, MAY HAVE A SET OF

FACTS THAT ARE HELPFUL TO

THEM.

David: "CORRECT THE

RECORD" HAS ABOUT TWO DOZEN

DEDICATED EMPLOYEES.

I BELIEVE THIS IS WHAT YOU

CALL A LEAN, MEAN, FIGHTING

MACHINE.

AND SPEAKING OF FIGHTING, WE

KNOW HILLARY CLINTON IS A

FIGHTER, AND SHE IS ONE

TOUGH COOKIE, BUT WE FOUND A

SOFTER SIZE TO HILLARY, JUST

LIKE SEARS, WHEN "THE BRODY

FILE" INTERVIEWED HER BACK

IN 2008, DURING HER RUN FOR

PRESIDENT.

TIME TO DIP INTO "THE BRODY

FILE" VIDEO VAULT FOR THIS

BLAST FROM THE PAST.

ARE YOU MISUNDERSTOOD, AND

IF YOU ARE, WHY?

YOU KNOW, I HAVE TO

BELIEVE I AM BECAUSE TIME

AND TIME AGAIN PEOPLE WHO

HAVE BEEN CRITICIZING ME IN

VERY HARSH AND IMPERSONAL

TERMS, ONCE THEY HAVE GOTTEN

TO KNOW ME, THEY HAVE

APOLOGIZED TO ME AND ASKED

EVEN FOR MY FORGIVENESS.

David: HILLARY CLINTON

SHOWING A SENSITIVE SIDE.

AND SHE SPEAKS ABOUT HER

METHODIST FAITH.

AND A LOT OF CONSERVATIVES

CAN'T COMPREHEND HER FAITH

WITH HER POLITICS.

BUT SHE DEFINES HER FAITH IN

DIFFERENT WAYS.

HERE SHE IS SPEAKING THIS

YEAR AT THE UNITED

METHODIST'S WOMEN'S

ASSEMBLY, AND SHE IS TALKING

ABOUT THE LESSON SHE LEARNED

WHEN JESUS FED THE

MULTITUDE.

HE WAS TEACHING A LESSON

ABOUT THE RESPONSIBILITY WE

ALL SHARE TO STEP UP AND

SERVE THE COMMUNITY.

ESPECIALLY --

[APPLAUSE]

-- ESPECIALLY TO HELP

THOSE WITH THE GREATEST NEED

AND THE FEWEST RESOURCES.

IT IS A LESSON THAT HAS

MOTIVATED THE SOCIAL JUSTICE

MISSION OF OUR CHURCH FROM

THE VERY BEGINNING.

David: HILLARY CLINTON

AND FAITH, IT IS A TOPIC

WE'RE GOING TO EXPLORE MORE

IN THE NEXT YEAR HERE ON

"THE BRODY FILE."

ALL RIGHT.

COMING NEXT, THE VIOLENCE

BETWEEN HAMAS AND ISRAEL.

A CLOSER LOOK AS WE BRING IN

OUR TERRORISM PANELIST ERICK

STAKELBECK.

HE IS THE WATCHMAN.

THAT'S NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

ISRAEL VERSUS HAMAS, ONE

WORD, UGLY, AND SENATOR TED

CRUZ HAS INJECTED HIMSELF

INTO THE MIDDLE OF THIS

CONTROVERSY.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER HOW

PLANES STOPPED APPLYING

FLYING INTO TEL AVIV FOR A

COUPLE OF DAYS BECAUSE OF

THE CONFLICT.

THECRUZ SAID THE FOLLOWING:

"FACTS SUGGEST THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS JUST

USED A FEDERAL REGULATORY

AGENCY TO LAUNCH AN ECONOMIC

BOYCOTT IN ISRAEL, IN ORDER

TO TRY TO FORCE OUR ALLY TO

COMPLY WITH HIS FOREIGN

POLICY DEMANDS."

THE STATE DEPARTMENT CALLED

THE CHARGE BY CRUZ

RIDICULOUS, AND CRUZ'S

OFFICE RESPOND BY CALLING

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S

FOREIGN POLICY RIDICULOUS.

AND THEN BOTH SIDES WENT TO

THE SANDBOX ON THE

PLAYGROUND TO FIGHT IT OUT.

BUT WE DON'T HAVE THAT.

SPEAKING ABOUT THE SUPPORT

OF ISRAEL OR THE LACK OF

SUPPORT OF ISRAEL, THE

PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH HAS COME

UNDER FIRE LATELY AFTER THE

CHURCH'S DECISION TO DIVEST

FROM BUSINESSES THAT DO WORK

IN ISRAEL.

CHURCH LEADERS SAY THE

DECISION WAS A LONG TIME

COMING AND HAS NOTHING TO DO

WITH THE CURRENT CONFLICT.

BUT NOT ALL OF THE CHURCH

MEMBERS ARE ON BOARD.

CARMEN LABIRCH IS THE

PRESIDENT OF THE

PRESBYTERIAN LAKE COMMUNITY,

AND SHE SAYS THAT DECISION

DOES NOT REPRESENT THE

MAJORITY OF BELIEVERS.

THAT IS VERY, VERY

TROUBLING TO MANY IN THE

PEWS OF PRESBYTERIAN

CHURCHES, WHO DO NOT HAVE

WITHIN THEIR HEART AN

ANTI-SEMITIC HEARTBEAT.

THEY HAVE, INSTEAD, A VERY

PRO-ISRAEL HEARTBEAT.

THEY UNDERSTAND HOW

COMPLICATED THE SITUATION IS

WITH THE PALESTINIANS.

THEY UNDERSTAND AND DESIRE

PEACE.

AND THEY CERTAINLY -- NONE

OF US DESIRES WAR FOR

ANYONE.

BUT WE DO RECOGNIZE ISRAEL'S

RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF.

David: IN THE MIDST OF

ALL OF THIS CHAOS BETWEEN

HAMAS AND ISRAEL, WE NEED

SOMEONE TO COME IN HERE AND

CUT THROUGH ALL OF THE MEDIA

SPIN AND LAY DOWN THE

REALITY BOOM OF WHAT IS

GOING ON ON THE GROUND.

AND WE FOUND THE MAN, ERICK

STAKELBECK.

YOU'VE BEEN THE WATCHMAN ON

THE WALL THROUGH ALL OF

THIS.

HOW DO PEOPLE MAKE SENSE OF

ALL OF THIS?

WHAT'S THE DEAL?

DAVID, I THINK FOR THE

AVERAGE VIEWER AT HOME WHO

MIGHT NOT KNOW A LOT ABOUT

THE CONFLICT, A LOT OF

PEOPLE SAY THEY'RE ALWAYS

KILLING EACH OTHER.

HAMAS IS CONSIDERED BY THE

U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT TO BE

A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

BOTTOM LINE.

THE AMERICAN AND THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT CONSIDERS HAMAS A

TERRORIST GROUP.

HAMS IS COMMITTED TO

ISRAEL'S DESTRUCTION.

THEY MAKE NO BONES ABOUT

IT.

THEY WANT TO WIPE ISRAEL OFF

THE MAP.

AND THE KEY POINT HERE IS

HAMAS, IN ITS FOUNDING

CHARTER, THEIR VERSION OF

THE CONSTITUTION, THEY

DECLARE THEY WANT TO KILL

EVERY JEW.

THAT MEANS NOT JUST

ISRAELIS, BUT EVERY JEW FROM

TEL AVIV TO TEXAS TO TORONTO

HAS A BULL'S EYE ON THEIR

BACK.

THEY'RE FIRING ROCKETS ON

ISRAEL ON A DAILY BASIS,

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

ROCKETS, AND DIGGING TUNNELS

UNDERNEATH GAZA, WHERE THEY

CAN CARRY OUT MASSACRES ON

KITBUTZES.

David: AND HERE IS THE

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT SAYING TO

FOLKS IN THE GAZA AREA, HEY,

FOLKS, WE'RE GOING TO BOMB

YOU.

WE'RE GOING TO LET YOU KNOW,

SO PLEASE GET OUT.

THEY'RE DOING THE

HUMANITARIAN THING.

A LOT OF FOLKS THINK ISRAEL

SHOULD BE EVEN TOUGHER WITH

THE FOLKS DOWN THERE, WITH

HAMAS AND EVERYBODY IN

GAZA.

IT IS AN INTERESTING

POINT.

I TALKED TO ISRAELIS WHO

SAY, WE'RE PRETTY MUCH THE

MOST HUMANE FORCE.

THEY'RE ACTUALLY CALLING THE

CELL PHONES OF HAMAS

FAMILIES SAYING WE'RE ABOUT

TO BOMB YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD,

PLEASE EVACUATE IN THE NEXT

FEW HOURS.

UNHEARD OF.

A LOT OF FOLKS WANT THE

NETANYAHU GOVERNMENT TO GO

FURTHER, AND THAT MEANS WIPE

OUT HAMAS ONCE AND FOR ALL,

KICK THEM OUT OF POWER IN

GAZA.

David: GIVE ME THE

20-SECOND ANSWER ON WHEN

THIS COULD POTENTIALLY END?

WHAT SORT OF TIMETABLE COULD

WE BE LOOKING AT?

HAMAS SHOWS NO SIGNS OF

ENDING IT.

THEY HAVE NO GREAT VICTORY

THEY CAN BRING TO THE GREAT

PEOPLE OF GAZA TO SHOW OFF.

SO ISRAEL EITHER CRIPPLES

THEM OR THEY GIVE UP.

David: WE'D LIKE TO

GET YOUR RESPONSES IN 140

CHARACTERS OR LESS, TO THIS

QUESTION: WHAT WOULD JESUS

DO REGARDING THE CRISIS IN

HAMAS AND ISRAEL.

TWEET AWAY, FOLKS.

USE THE HASHTAG, AND DON'T

FORGET TO INCLUDE OUR HANDLE

AT "THE BRODY FILE."

WHEN WE COME BACK, FROM

ALCOHOL TO THOUGHTS OF

SUICIDE TO A RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS.

A ROCK AND ROLL JUKEBOX HERO

TURNS HIS LIFE AROUND.

THE CHURCH LADY WITH HIS

STORY, NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE BRODY FILE."

ALL RIGHT, LOOK, IF YOU

DIDN'T MAKE IT TO CHURCH

THIS WEEKEND, THAT'S OKAY.

I MEAN, LOOK, "THE BRODY

FILE" DOES ENCOURAGE CHURCH

ATTENDANCE, BUT YOU CAN GET

SOME OF THAT RIGHT HERE --

WELL, NOT REALLY.

BUT WE HAVE THE NEXT BEST

THING TO CHURCH.

WE CALL HER THE CHURCH LADY,

TRACY WINBORN, HERE WITH

SOME HAPPENINGS AROUND THE

CHRISTIAN WORLD.

* MY SWEET LORD

Reporter: REMEMBER THE

ROCK BAND CREED FROM THE

'90s.

THE LEAD SINGER WAS KNOWN

FOR HIS DEEP VOICE.

BUT IT TOOK HIM DOWN A DARK

ROAD.

BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY,

GOD GOT AHOLD OF HIS HEART.

CREED CREE SOLD 30 MILLION

ALBUMS.

SCOTT STEPP IS OUT WITH A

NEW SOLO ALBUM CALLED "PROOF

OF LIFE."

AND HIS LIFE IS IN A MUCH

BETTER PLACE AFTER IT

SPIRALLED OUT OF CONTROL.

WITH THE SUCCESS OF CREED

AND WHERE I WAS IN MY HEART,

AS A CHRISTIAN, YOU KNOW, I

WAS RUNNING FROM THE CHURCH,

IN A SPIRITUAL VACUUM.

I CHOSE TO DRINK, AND THAT

LED TO MANY OTHER THINGS,

YOU KNOW, DRUG USE AND JUST

THE LIFE OF THE PARTY.

Reporter: HE SAYS HIS

ADDICTIONS EVENTUALLY

STARTED TAKING A TOLL ON HIS

BODY, AND IT EVEN ALMOST

KILLED HIM.

GOD BEGAN HIS WORK ON ME,

AND CONTINUAL CONSEQUENCES

CAME BECAUSE OF MY ACTIONS,

LOSING ALL FAITH IN MY

ABILITY AND ALL MY STRENGTH,

WHICH BROUGHT ME TO

SURRENDER, WHERE I HAD NO

OTHER PLACE TO GO.

Reporter: HE TURNED TO

GOD AND IT SAVED HIS LIFE.

NOW HE HOPES THE SONGS ON

HIS NEW CHRISTIAN ALBUM WILL

INSPIRE OTHERS.

IT IS A MESSAGE OF GRACE

AND LOVE.

AND, YOU KNOW, THE POWER OF

GOD'S REDEMPTIVE POWER IN

OUR LIFE.

Reporter: HE HOPES TO

SHARE THAT MESSAGE WORLDWIDE

ON HIS CRUCIAL GUIDE'S TOUR,

GOING FROM HIS MEGA SUCCESS

IN CREED, TO THIS JOURNEY.

KNOWING CHRIST HAS GIVEN

ME A CLEAR DIRECTION AND A

PATH I WANT TO FOLLOW.

Reporter: SCOTT TOLD ME

HE WAS SO THANKFUL HE HEARD

ABOUT GOD AS A CHILD, AND HE

NEVER FORGOT ABOUT HIM.

THAT'S HOW IMPORTANT IT IS

TO TELL YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT

GOD.

THAT'S ENOUGH PREACHING FROM

THE CHURCH LADY.

DAVID, BACK TO YOU.

* OH, MY LORD, MY SWEET

LORD *

David: THANKS, TRACY.

ALL RIGHT, UP NEXT, IT'S THE

STORY OF A GREEK HERO --

WAIT, NOT THAT KIND OF A

HERO.

CLERK CLEASHERCULES IS IN

THEATERS, BUT IS THERE A

MESSAGE IN THE MOVIE FOR

CHRISTIANS?

WE'RE HEADED TO JOHN'S MOVIE

CORNER, NEXT.

David: AND WELCOME

BACK.

HE IS THE SON OF GOD, HE HAS

SUPER HUMAN ABILITIES, AND

HE IS HERE ON EARTH TO DO

GOOD.

DOES THAT STORY SOUND A BIT

FAMILIAR?

WELL, WE'RE NOT TALKING

ABOUT OUR LORD AND SAVIOR,

JESUS CHRIST, BUT WE'RE

TALKING ABOUT THE NEW FILM,

HERCULES, AND THE STARK

COMPARISONS BETWEEN THE TWO

HAS SOME CRITICS ABUZZ.

REMEMBER THE DEED, THE

LENGTHS YOU HAVE

ACCOMPLISHED.

ARE YOU ONLY THE LEGEND,

OR ARE YOU THE TRUTH BEHIND

THE LEGEND?

NOW, TELL ME, WHO ARE YOU?

I AM HERCULES!

David: SO WHAT'S THE

BIG DEAL?

FOR MORE ON THE FILM, WE

TURN TO MOVIE EXPERT

EXTRAORDINARE JOHN JESSUP.

THERE HE IS.

HELLO, FOLKS.

David: JOHN IS HERE IN

HIS MOVIE CORNER.

John: THANKS FOR

LIFTING THE BAN.

David: YOU BET.

BY THE WAY, NICE BOW TIE.

John: THANK YOU VERY

MUCH.

I WORE THIS FOR YOU.

David: HERCULES,

JESUS, REALLY?

WE BOTH SAW THE MOVIE,

OBVIOUSLY ALL EXPENSES

PAID -- I DON'T KNOW ABOUT

YOU, BUT I DID.

WHAT DID YOU THINK?

John: THERE WASN'T

MUCH.

YOU TALKED ABOUT THE

COMPARISON BETWEEN JESUS,

THE SON OF GOD, AND

HERCULES.

I WOULD SAY THEY'RE BOTH

CHARISMATIC AND POWERFUL.

HERCULES, OF COURSE, MORE

PHYSICAL FAITH.

BOTH HAD LONG HAIR, BUT I

WOULD STOP DRAWING THE

COMPARISONS THERE.

AS FAR AS BIBLICAL

CONNECTIONS -- THE ONLY

THING THAT MADE ME THINK OF

THE BIBLE IS WHEN HERCULES

WAS PUSHING OVER THE STATUE,

AND IT REMINDS ME OF SAMPSON

WHEN HE PUSHES OVER THE

COLUMNS.

THAT WAS ABOUT IT.

David: IT IS

INTERESTING.

THESE MOVIES ALWAYS GIVE --

IF YOU'RE WITH FOLKS,

ESPECIALLY NON-BELIEVERS, IT

GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO

OPEN UP THE CONVERSATION.

THERE WAS ONE GUY IN THE

SCENE THAT SAYS, I DON'T

KNOW WHERE I'M GOING WHEN I

DIE.

THAT'S A LINE THAT COULD BE

A CONVERSATION STARTER WITH

A NON-BELIEVER.

HEAVEN OR HELL?

WHERE DO I GO AFTER THIS.

IF YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

MOVIES LIKE THESE, THERE

HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT

INCARNATIONS, AND I KEPT

THINKING OF "CLASH OF THE

TITANS" WITH HARRY HAMLIN.

WHAT WAS INTERESTING ABOUT

THIS WAS IT SEEMED TO POSE

THE QUESTION, IS HEBREW

CLEASE THE SON OF SEUSS OR

IS HE JUST A MERE MORTAL

MAN.

BUT THE FACT THAT HE IS A

MORTAL, BUT HE HAS MERCY AND

INTEGRITY, THOSE YOU TAKE

AWAY.

David: I WANT TO

GOOGLE HOW OLD IS WAYNE

JOHNSON.

41 YEARS OLD.

I KNOW, I LOOK SIMILAR,,.

John: I COMPARE YOU TO

WAYNE JOHNSON.

David: ALWAYS A

PLEASURE.

WHEN YOU COME BACK, WILL YOU

COME BACK WITH A BOW TIE?

John: I WILL, JUST FOR

YOU.

David: JOHN'S MOVIE

CORNER.

UP NEXT, OUR OY-VEY MOMENT

OF THE WEEK.

AND THIS GUY IS GIVING DUMB

CRIMINALS A BAD NAME.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

David: THIS NEXT STORY

GAVE US A BIT OF A HEADACHE,

BUT NOT AS BIG AS THE GUY

WHO IS FEATURED IN THIS

WEEK'S OY-VEY MOMENT OF THE

WEEK.

[HAVA NAGILA]

David: WE'RE NOT SURE

EXACTLY WHAT THIS IS, BUT

DOES IT MATTER.

HERE IS A GUY, BAD

CRIMINAL.

ALL RIGHT, HE IS IN, GRAB

THE STUFF AND GET OUT.

MAKE SURE YOU GO THROUGH THE

DOOR -- WAIT -- RIGHT.

WAY, WHAT WAS THAT?

HE BUSTED THE GLASS AND WENT

OUT THE WRONG DOOR.

CAN WE SEE THAT AGAIN IN

SLOW MOTION.

HERE HE COMES, KA-CHING.

EXCEDRIN MOMENT FOR SURE.

AND, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,

THAT IS THE OY-VEY EXCEDRIN

MOMENT OF THE WEEK.

THAT DOES IT FOR US.

GOD BLESS YOU AND HAVE A

GREAT WEEK.
