On CBN Newswatch, March 10: Bipartisan group appeals Gov. McDonnell's conviction; GOP Senators' letter to Iran draws White House ire; Chaplain's choice: 'Religious freedom or your career'; and more. Read Transcript


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFRE EFREM GRAHAM.

AND I'M CHARLENE AARON.

A LARGE GROUP OF FORMER

STATE ATTORNEYS-GENERAL ARE

ASKING A FEDERAL APPEAL

COURT TO TOSS OUT THE

CORRUPTION CONVICTION OF BOB

McDONALD.

FORMER VIRGINIA BOB

McDONALD IS GETTING

SUPPORT FROM A BIPARTISAN

GROUP OF ATTORNEYS-GENERAL,

WHO OPPOSE HIS CONVICTION ON

FEDERAL CORRUPTION CHARGES.

23 DEMOCRATS AND 21

REPUBLICANS FILED A BRIEF,

ARGUING THAT McDONALD'S

ACTIONS WHO HAVE BEEN DEALT

WITH BY VIRGINIA, NOT THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

THEY WROTE, "THE THE VERY

LEAST, IT EMPOWERS FEDERAL

PRO PROSECUTORS TO CHARGE

STATE OFFICIALS WITH CRIMES,

CASTING A FOG OVER EVERY DIN

DINNER WITH A CONSTITUENT OR

A FUNDRAISER."

THEY FOUND McDONALD AND

HIS WIFE GUILTY OF ACCEPTING

MORE THAN $165,000 IN GIFTS,

VACATIONS, AND LOANS FROM

JOHNNY WILLIAMS, IN EXCHANGE

FOR PROMOTING HIS PRODUCTS.

BUT WILLIAMS NEVER RECEIVED

ANYTHING TANGIBLE IN RETURN

FOR THE GIFTS, AND THE

ATTORNEYS-GENERAL SAY

McDONALD DID NOTHING

BEYOND NORM POLITICS.

THEY SAY IF THE KON VINCES

KO CONVICTIONS STAND,

INNOCENT PROCEEDINGS WILL

CARRY THE THREAT OF FORMAL

LIABILITY.

THE FORMER GOVERNOR WAS

SENTENCED TO YEARS IN

PRISON, AND HIS WIFE WAS

SENTENCED TO TWO YEARS AND

ONE DAY.

McDONALD APOLOGIZED FOR

HIS MISTAKES, BUT SAID HE

DIDN'T BREAK THE OATH OF

OFFICE.

AND HE WILL FIGHT FOR HIS

INNOCENCE.

I'D HAVE TREMENDOUS FAITH

IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT I

HAVE TREMENDOUS FAITH AND

TRUST IN THE PROVIDENCE OF

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND

HIS ABILITY TO MEET OUT

JUSTICE.

AND SO THAT IS MY HOPE FOR

ULTIMATE VINDICATION.

Charlene: MEANWHILE SIX

FORMER ATTORNEYS-GENERAL

FILED A SEPARATE FRIEND OF

THE BRIEF COURT, SAYING THEY

WOULD NOT HAVE CONCLUDED

THAT THE ACTIONS TAKEN BY

McDONALD WERE ILLEGAL.

TWO GROUPS OF LAW

PROFESSORS, AND A GROUP OF

120 BUSINESS AND PUBLIC

POLICY LEADERS ARE ALSO

STANDING WITH THE FORMER

GOVERNOR.

McDONALD IS CURRENTLY OUT

ON BAIL, AWAITING ORAL

ARGUMENTS FOR HIS APPEAL,

WHICH IS SET TO BEGIN IN

MAY.

Efrem: 47 REPUBLICAN

SENATORS ARE SENDING A

MESSAGE TO THE LEADERS OF

IRAN.

Charlene: THEY ARGUE

THAT ANY NUCLEAR DEAL THEY

CUT WITH THE U.S. UNDER THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL

EXPIRE THE DAY HE LEAVES

OFFICE.

Efrem: IN AN OPEN

LETTER TO IRAN, G.O.P.

LEADERS WRITE, "YOU MAY NOT

FULLY UNDERSTAND OUR

CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM.

WE WOULD CONSIDER ANY

AGREEMENT REGARDING YOUR

NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM THAT

IS NOT APPROVED BY THE

CONGRESS, SAYS NOTHING MORE

THAN AN EXECUTIVE AGREEMENT

BETWEEN PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI."

Charlene: WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS ARE OUTRAGED

JOSEPH BIDEN SAYING, "THE

DECISION TO CIRCUMVENT OR

CONSTITUTIONAL POLICY OFFEND

ME."

Efrem: THE LIBERTY

INSTITUTE REPORTS CHAPLAIN

WES MODER POINTED OUT HE

HOLDS THE VIEWS OF AN

ASSEMBLY OF GOD MINISTRY.

THEY WANT TO HAUL HIM BEFORE

A MILITARY BOARD OF INQUIRY

AND POSSIBLY FIRE HIM JUST

MONTHS BEFORE HE REACHES HIS

20-YEAR RETIREMENT.

MIKE BARRY SAYS THE NAVY'S

TREATMENT OF THIS HERO IS

OUTRAGEOUS.

Charlene: A FRATERNITY

IS NO LONGER ON THE

UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA'S

CAMPUS AFTER A VIDEO OF A

RACIST CHANT BY ITS MEMBERS

WENT VIRAL.

THE VIDEO SHOWS SEVERAL

MEMBERS OF THE SIGMA ALPHA

EPSILON TAKING PART IN A

CHANT THAT REFERENCED

LYNCHING.

THE VIDEO WENT VIRAL SUNDAY

NIGHT AFTER IT WAS TEXTED

ANONYMOUSLY TO A GROUP OF

AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDENTS ON

CAMPUS.

IT IS NOT ANYTHING THAT

HAPPENED OVERNIGHT.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT HAS

BEEN REHEARSED AND

WELL-KNOWN.

EVERYBODY ON THAT BUS WAS

SINGING THIS CHANT PROUDLY

AND CONFIDENTLY.

I THINK THIS IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO TURN THE TIDE

AND REALLY MOVE FORWARD AND

SET A PRECEDENT FOR THE

ENTIRE NATION.

Charlene: THE

UNIVERSITY SAYS AN

INVESTIGATION IS UNDER WAY

TO DETERMINE WHETHER SOME OF

THE FRATERNITY MEMBERS COULD

BE EXPELLED FOR VIOLATING

PART OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS

ACTION.

Efrem: MISSOURI SUPREME

COURT IS ASSIGNING A STATE

JUDGE TO HANDLE ALL PENDING

AND FUTURE CASES IN FERGUSON

UNTIL FURTHER JUSTICE.

THE REPORT DESCRIBED THE

CITY'S POLICE AND COURT

SYSTEMS AS BIAS,

MONEY-MAKING ENTERPRISES,

AND ALLEGED THAT BOTH

INSTITUTIONS VIOLATED CIVIL

RIGHTS.

ONE FERGUSON MUNICIPAL COURT

JUDGE NAMED IN THE

INVESTIGATION RESIGNED,

SHORTLY AFTER THE MISSOURI

SUPREME COURT ANNOUNCEMENT.

Charlene: THE FEDERAL

COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION

RECENTLY APPROVED SWEEPING

NEW RULES FOR THE INTERNET

CALLED NET NEUTRALLITY.

NEUTRALITY.

ONE REPUBLICAN MEMBER OF THE

F.C.C. CALLED IT A

MONUMENTAL SHIFT FOR

GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF THE

INTERNET.

AND SENATE MAJORITY LEADER

MITCHELL McCONNELL SAYS

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

NEEDS TO GET BEHIND ITS

1930s, ROTARY PHONE AND

MEET THE FUTURE.

Efrem: THE BLOATED

BUREAUCRACY IS A BIG CONCERN

FOR CONSERVATIVES.

THEY SAY THE FEDERAL

BUREAUCRATIC STATE HAS

BECOME SO HUGE IT IS NOW A

DEFACTO FOURTH BRANCH OF

GOVERNMENT AND MAY BE THE

MOST POWERFUL BRANCH.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

EXPERTS WILL TELL YOU IT IS

COMPLETELY

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

IF THERE IS ONE THING THE

FOUNDING FATHERS CARED ABOUT

IT WAS LIBERTY.

THE LAST THING THEY WOULD

HAVE WANTED WAS AN UNELECTED

BUREAUCRACY THAT COULD STEAL

YOUR PROPERTY, YOUR RIGHTS,

AND EVEN YOUR FREEDOM.

LAW SCHOOL ASSISTANT DEAN

SAYS THOSE FOUNDING FATHERS

WERE CLEAR AND DELIBERATE

WOULD YOU B DELIBERATE

ABOUT WHAT THEY WOULD

ALLOW.

WE HAD THE ARTICLES OF

CONFEDERATION AND THEY

DIDN'T WORK.

WE GOT TOGETHER AT A

CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION,

AND SPENT A LOT OF TIME

DECIDING HOW TO MAKE THIS

BALANCE OF POWER.

Reporter: THEY DECIDED

THOSE IN CONGRESS COULD MAKE

THE LAWS THAT WOULD REIN

OVER AND EVEN THREATEN THE

VOTERS.

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO MAKE

THE LAWS, PROPOSE THE LAWS,

BE ANSWERABLE TO THE PEOPLE,

AND THE PRESIDENT IS NOT A

LAWMAKER.

HIS JOB IS TO EITHER SAY NO

TO THIS LAW OR YES TO THIS

LAW.

Reporter: BUT THE

UNCEASING CANCEROUS GROWTH

OF THE BUREAUCRATIC AGENCIES

HAS UPSET THIS BALANCE AND

MADE UNELECTED DEMOCRATS

SUPER POWERFUL.

THEY'RE LIKE A FOURTH

BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT NOW.

AND THEY'RE UNACCOUNTABLE,

AND THEY'RE UNANSWERABLE TO

THE VOTERS.

AND THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH

JUST ABOUT ANYTHING THEY

WANT WITHOUT ANY

CONSEQUENCES.

Reporter: AND THAT HAS

ALLOWED MODERN PRESIDENTS TO

BASICALLY TAKE THE LAW INTO

THEIR OWN HANDS.

AND PRESIDENT HAS MADE THIS

HIS FORTE, AS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL AS IT MAY

BE.

HE IS SAYING, CONGRESS IS

NOT DOING WHAT I WANT, AND

I'LL GO AROUND CONGRESS.@y

NOTHING ALLOWS HIM TO DO

THAT.

AND IT IS NOT EVEN BEING

HIDDEN ANYMORE.

THE PRESIDENT HAS COME RIGHT

OUT AND SAID, IF THE

CONGRESS WON'T ACT, I WILL

ACT.

Reporter: AND NOW THEY

LITERALLY WIELD LIFE AND

DEATH POWER OVER PEOPLE.

THEY ARE ISSUING

REGULATIONS OFTEN WITH

CRIMINAL PMGHTS.

PARTICIPANTS.

PENALTIES.

AND THESE UNELECTED

BUREAUCRATS HAVE THE ABILITY

TO DECLARE THAT CERTAIN

ACTIONS WILL POTENTIALLY

LAND YOU IN JAIL.

Reporter: AND IN MANY

CASES, TO BE PENALIZED, YOU

DON'T EVEN HAVE TO KNOW YOU

WERE GUILTY OF DISOBEYING

THESE REGULATIONS.

THE FAMOUS SAYING IS

"IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NO

DEFENSE," BUT THAT'S BEFORE

WE STARTED MAKING HUNDREDS

OF THOUSANDS OF LAWS EVERY

YEAR.

IN FACT, LAWMAKERS ARE

IGNORANT OF THE LAW.

IF YOU REMEMBER FROM

OBAMACARE, THEY SAID, WE

HAVE TO PASS IT BEFORE WE

KNOW WHAT IS IN IT.

Reporter: AND EVEN

THOUGH REPUBLICANS HAVE

BEGUN TALKING ABOUT REINING

IN SOME OF THE POLICIES,

CAPITOL HILL DIDN'T STOP

THEM.

CONGRESS HAS DELEGATED

TOO MUCH OF ITS POWER TO ALL

OF THESE ADMINISTRATIVE

AGENCIES.

SO NOW YOU HAVE ESSENTIALLY

A SHADOW GOVERNMENT IN THESE

FEDERAL AGENCIES THAT IS

RUNNING OUR COUNTRY AND

DETERMINING HOW THE I.R.S.

IS RUNNING, AND HOW THE

E.P.A. AFFECTS YOUR LAND AND

PROPERTY.

WE ARE EMPOWERING THIS

HUGE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT

CAN RESTRICT OUR LIBERTIES,

RESTRICT OUR FREEDOM,

RESTRICT OUR ECONOMIC

OPPORTUNITIES IN THIS

COUNTRY, AND IT'S ALMOST

IMPOSSIBLE TO FIGHT BACK

AGAINST THESE AGENCIES.

Reporter: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS, WASH WORK.

WASHINGTON.

COMING UP, DRIVEN FROM

HER HOME YET FULL OF

FORGIVENESS.

WATCH THE AMAZING STORY OF A

10-YEAR-OLD IRAQI REFUGEE

OFFERING GOD'S LOVE TO

ISIS.

Lori: HEY, EVERYBODY,

LORI JOHNSON HERE, HEALTH

REPORTER FOR CBN NEWS.

HOW MANY HOURS OF SLEEP DO

YOU GET EACH NIGHT?

DID YOU KNOW THAT NOT

GETTING ENOUGH CAN MAKE YOU

GAIN WEIGHT AND GET SICK?

UNFORTUNATELY, MANY PEOPLE

AREN'T GETTING THE SLEEP

THEY NEED BECAUSE THEY

EITHER HAVE DIFFICULTY

FALLING ASLEEP, OR THEY WAKE

UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

NIGHT AND HAVE TROUBLE

GETTING BACK TO SLEEP.

IF THAT SOUNDS LIKE YOU,

CHECK OUT MY BLOG BECAUSE I

HAVE LOTS OF GREAT TIPS ON

HOW TO GET A GOOD NIGHT

SLEEP WITHOUT SLEEPING

PILLS.

THAT'S ON CBNNEWS.COM.

Efrem: A YOUNG IRAQI

REFUGEE'S FORGIVENESS GOES

VIRAL.

LITTLE 10-YEAR-OLD MIRIAM

SHARED HER HEART ABOUT LIFE

AS A REFUGEE IN IRBIL,

KURDISTAN.

Charlene: AND SHE TOLD

THE REPORTER SHE FORGIVES

ISIS FOR FORCING HER FAMILY

FROM THEIR HOME IN IRAQ.

MIRIAM'S STORY HAS NOW BEEN

VIEWED BY A HALF MILLION

PEOPLE.

Efrem: CBN'S GARY LANE

SPOKE WITH THE REPORTER

ABOUT MIRIAM AND HER

CHILD-LIKE FAITH.

Reporter: THANK YOU FOR

FOR JOINING US.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT

MIRIAM?

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT HER?

SHE IS A 10-YEAR-OLD GIRL

FROM IRAQ.

AND SHE WAS DISPLACED, AND

NOW SHE IS LIVING IN A MALL

IN IRBIL.

SHE WAS VERY ACTIVE AT

SCHOOL.

SHE HAS A VERY LOVELY

SMILE.

AND SHE HAS A VERY LOVELY

HEART AS WELL.

I THINK, GARY, THIS IS THE

BEST PART THAT WE HAVE

ENCOUNTERED BECAUSE MIRIAM

HERSELF HAD EDUCATED ME IN

THE SENSE THAT SHE HAD A LOT

OF HOPE THAT NO ONE COULD

KNOW ABOUT IT.

IT IS LIKE A PEARL IN THE

SAND.

YOU HAVE TO DIG IN ORDER TO

GET HER UP AND LET HER

SPEAK.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

KNOW ABOUT HER FAMILY?

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT

THEM?

DOES SHE HAVE BROTHERS AND

SISTERS?

AND WHAT DO THEY DO IN KIERAKUSH?

SHE ONLY HAS ONE SIBLING,

A GIRL, AND HER FATHER AND

MOTHER.

AND THEY TREAT THE CHILDREN

IN VERY GOOD MANNERS, AND

SHE REALLY LOVES HER

PARENTS.

SHE LOVES THEM IN A WAY, AND

THEY TEACH HER HOW TO SING

AND LOVE EACH OTHER.

AND WE REALLY CAN FEEL THIS

AMOUNT OF BURST OF LOVE THAT

IS COMING OUT OF MIRIAM.

WE'RE JUST A MODEST FAMILY.

AND THEY ARE LIKE HUNDREDS

OF OTHER FAMILIES THAT COME

OUT OF THEIR PLACES,

DISPLACED BY ISIS, AND WENT

TO LIVE IN IRBIL.

Reporter: WHAT

IMPRESSED YOU THE MOST ABOUT

WHAT SHE TOLD YOU?

THE WAY SHE TALKS ABOUT

THINGS.

YOU KNOW, YOU CAN SEE, GARY,

THAT SHE HAS SOME KIND OF

VERY DEEP TRUTH IN HER VOICE

AND IN HER EYES AS WELL, YOU

KNOW.

WHEN YOU SEE A 10-YEAR-OLD

GIRL, AND WHEN I THANKED HER

AT THE END OF THE INTERVIEW,

SHE TOLD ME, I THANK YOU;

YOU TAUGHT ME A LOT.

WHEN I ASKED HER WHAT DID I

TAUGHT YOU?

SHE TOLD ME, YOU DIDN'T

TAUGHT ME, YOU JUST FELT FOR

ME.

CAN YOU IMAGINE A

10-YEAR-OLD GIRL, AND SHE IS

JUST FULL OF HOPE, AND SHE

SINGS FOR JESUS.

AND HE SINGS ABOUT THE HOPE

SHE IS LIVING IN EVERY DAY.

ASIDE FROM WHATEVER IS

HAPPENING, YOU KNOW?

*

*

SHE REALLY HAS SOMETHING

IMPORTANT IN HER HEART, AND

A BIG MESSAGE OF LOVE AND

FORGIVENESS.

TO THE PEOPLE WHO PERSECUTED

HER AND FOR THE WHOLE

WORLD.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

I THINK IT IS VERY

IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE IN THE

WEST TO KNOW THAT WE NEED TO

PRAY FOR THESE KIDS, IN

ORDER FOR THIS SINGLE, SMALL

BIT OF LIGHT TO STILL SHINE

IN I'D THEIR HEARTS AND

MINDS.

AND TO KEEP THEIR STORIES --

TO GO THROUGH THE WHOLE

WORD.

SO MANY PEOPLE WILL KNOW HOW

MUCH WE STILL HAVE FAITH,

YOU KNOW, AND THESE KIDS

STILL HAVE FAITH IN THEIR

HEARTS, DESPITE OF ALL WHAT

IS GOING ON AROUND THEM.

THANK YOU, ASSAM NAGI FOR

JOINING US TODAY.

THANKS SO MUCH.

THANK YOU.

Efrem: WHAT A GIRL.

YOU CAN FIND GARY'S ENTIRE

INTERVIEW, AND YOU CAN HEAR

MIRIAM'S ENTIRE SONG, AND

WE'VE GOT THE LINKS FOR BOTH

OF THEM AT THE GLOBAL LANE

BLOG AT CBNNEWS.COM.

Charlene: UP NEXT,

LESSONS THAT COULD SAVE

WOMEN'S LIVES.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHAT IT TAKES

TO PROTECT YOURSELF RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Charlene: WELL, IT IS

SHOCKING BUT TRUE, EVERY TWO

MINUTES A WOMAN IS SEXUALLY

ASSAULTED SOMEWHERE IN OUR

COUNTRY.

Efrem: AND MOST OF THE

VICTIMS ARE ATTACKED BY MEN

THEY KNOW, ON A DATE, AT A

PARTY, BY AN QUAINT

ACQUAINTANCE OR EVEN BY

SOMEONE THEY KNOW.

Reporter: THINK OF FIVE

WOMEN IN YOUR LIFE,

ACCORDING TO STATISTICS ONE

OF THEM WILL BE SEXUALLY

ASSAULTED IN HER LIFETIME.

WOMEN ARE A TARGET

BECAUSE THEY'RE WOMEN.

WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHERE

THERE IS GENDER-BASED

VIOLENCE.

Reporter: FOR MORE THAN

20 YEARS, DR. MARTHA McCOY

HAS RESEARCHED THIS CULTURE

PROBLEM AND LOOKED FOR WAYS

TO PREVENT IT.

WE HAVE COUNTLESS

EXAMPLES ON OUR BLOG AND IN

OTHER PLACES OF PEOPLE

MAKING RECOMMENDATIONS FORp?

HOW TO TRANSFORM OUR RAPE

CULTURE.

MAINLY ON CAMPUSES, BUT ALSO

EVERYWHERE ELSE.

AND THEY ALL TOO RARELY

MENTION SELF-DEFENSE.

WHEN SELF-DEFENSE IS THE ONE

THING WE HAVE EVIDENCE FOR.

Reporter: WOMEN FEEL

VULNERABLE IN SITUATIONS

LIKE THIS ONE FOR GOOD

REASON.

IT'S LATE.

IT'S GETTING DARK OUTSIDE,

AND I'M ISOLATED FROM ANYONE

WHO COULD HELP ME IF I FEEL

THREATENED.

BUT EVERY WOMAN HAS THE

RIGHT TO DEFEND HERSELF.

AND WHILE I DON'T RECOMMEND

HANGING OUT IN DARK PARKING

LOTS LIKE THIS ONE, WITH THE

RIGHT SKILLS I CAN AVOID

BECOMING A VICTIM HERE.

EVEN WOMEN WHO WERE

REALLY GOOD AT A LOT OF

OTHER THINGS REALIZE THAT

OUR SOCIETY HAD NEVER TAUGHT

THEM TO DEFEND THEIR BODILY

BOUNDARIES, TO HAVE A SENSE

OF ENTITLEMENT ABOUT THEIR

BODILY BOUNDARIES, AND TO BE

WILLING TO AGGRESSIVELY

DEFEND THEMSELVES IF

SOMEBODY WAS GOING TO

ASSAULT THEM.

Reporter: JESSICA

ABBOTT STARTED "THE BAD

BRASS WOMEN'S GUN CLUB" LAST

YEAR TO TEACH WOMEN HOW TO

PROTECT THEMSELVES.

YOU'RE OWNING A FIREARM

TO BE PREPARED, SO THAT IF

THE WORST HAPPENS, YOU HAVE

A SOLUTION.

Reporter: ABBOTT

STARTED THE CLUB BECAUSE THE

WORST HAPPENED TO HER.

BASICALLY HE BLOCKED ME

IN, AND THE GENTLEMAN GOT

OUT OF THE CAR AND DECIDED

HE WAS GOING TO TAKE MY

VEHICLE.

HE STARTED BANGING ON THE

WINDOWS AND WEARIN AND

SWEARING AT ME.

Reporter: ABBOTT

ESCAPED UNHARMED, BUT SHE

NEVER WANTS ANOTHER WOMAN TO

FACE A POTENTIAL ATTACK WITH

THAT SAME HELPLESS FEELING.

AT THIS CLUB, THE

INSTRUCTORS WORK WITH THE

WOMEN TO TEACH THEM HOW TO

HANDLE AND WORK WITH A GUN.

THIS COULD BE AN

INEXPENSIVE HOBBY THAT COULD

SAVE YOUR LIFE ONE DAY.

Reporter: BUT A FIREARM

ISN'T ALWAYS AVAILABLE.

SO IT IS IMPORTANT FOR A

WOMAN TO KNOW HOW TO DEFEND

HERSELF IN A ONE-ON-ONE

SITUATION.

YOU HAVE TO THINK OF

YOURSELF AS SOMEONE WHO IS

WORTH PROTECTING AND TAKING

SERIOUSLY.

Reporter: THE GOAL, USE

LEVERAGE, TECHNIQUE, AND

TIMING TO DEFEAT A BIGGER,

STRONGER OPPONENT.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE

OR GENDER YOUR ATTACKER IS.

WHAT MATTERS IS YOU HAVE THE

SKILLS TO DEFEND YOURSELF.

Reporter: THIS STUDENT,

ELION, WANTED TO LEARN HOW

TO DEFEND HERSELF AFTER A

STALKING INCIDENT SIX YEARS

AGO.

I WAS COMING OUT OF THE

MALL, IT WAS DARK OUTSIDE.

AND BASICALLY SOMEONE WAS

FOLLOWING ME.

BUT I DIDN'T NOTICE THIS

PERSON UNTIL HE WAS REALLY

CLOSE.

I WAS GETTING CLOSER TO THE

CAR, TRYING TO OPEN THE

DOOR, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN I

SEE THIS GUY RIGHT BEHIND

ME.

AND RIGHT THEN I PANICKED.

Reporter: A MALL

SECURITY GUARD DROVE BY AND

SPOOKED ELION'S ATTACKER,

BUT THAT MOMENT CHANGED

HER.

I KNOW THAT GOD IS OUR

FIRST PROTECTOR, AND I TRUST

IN THAT COMPLETELY.

BUT ALSO HE GAVE US THE

ABILITY TO DEFEND

OURSELVES.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO MOVE OR

HOW TO REACT.

AND MARTIAL ARTS GAVE ME THE

ABILITY TO ACTUALLY THINK

FASTER AND BE ABLE TO REACT

FASTER.

IT TAKES THREE

INGREDIENTS FOR SEXUAL

ASSAULT, OR ANY ASSAULT, TO

HAPPEN.

ONE, A BAD GUY.

A SEXUAL PREDATOR OR WHOEVER

THE BAD GUY IS.

TWO, A POTENTIAL VICTIM.

AND, THREE, THE RIGHT

VENUE.

I HAVE TRAINED HARD, AND

TODAY I'M NOT THE VICTIM

ANYMORE.

Reporter: WOMEN OF ALL

AGES, SHAPES, SIZES, AND

PHYSICAL ABILITIES CAN LEARN

SELF-DEFENSE TRAINING.

AND IT'S WORTH IT BECAUSE IT

COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Charlene: CBN CONTINUES

WORLD THROUGH "SUPERBOOK."

Efrem: 3,000 STUDENTS
