THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THE ISIS TAKEOVER OF ANOTHER

MAJOR IRAQI CITY HAS U.S.

POLITICIANS AND THE MEDIA

PLAYING THE BLAME GAME.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

WORSENING SITUATION THERE

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH OR

PRESIDENT OBAMA?

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

RIOT THE

Reporter: THE TAKING OF

THE BIGGEST GA

FOR ISIS THIS

THEY'RE SENDING IN BIGEXPLOSIONS, AND THEYS OF

DESTROYED THE PLACE.

Reporter: IT SEEMED

THATIS WAS ON THE RUN

AFTER THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT

RETOOK THE CITY OF TIIT

LAST MARCH.

BUT IRAQIRS FLED FROM

THE ADVANCE OF ISIS IN

RAMA

THE ISLAMIC STATE OF CONTROL

CALLING INTO QUE THE

IRAQ GOVERNMENT'S ABILITY

TO SP IS, AND AM

DMINISTRATION'S AIRSTRIKES

ONLY.

NATOR JOHN McCAIN SAYS

T NEED MORE BOOTS ON THE

GROUND TO STOP ISIS.

AND SAY ISIS POSSESS A

SERIOUS THREAT TO THE UNITED

STATES.

THE ISIS VICTORY COMES AS

SOME MEMBERS OF THE U.S.

MEDIA ARE CALLING INTO

QUESTION PRESIDENT BUSH'S

DECISIO TO G TO WAR IN

IRAQ.

THEY'RE ASKING DECLARED AND

POTENTIAL REPUBLICAN

CANDIDATES IF KNOWING WHAT

AMERICANS KNOW NOW, DID BUSH

MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION?

BASED ON WHAT WE KNOW

NOW --

WAS IT A MISTAKE TO GO TO

WAR WITH IRAQ? IT'S TOO EARLY --

Reporter: I'M ASKING

YOU --

I UNDERSTAND, BUT THAT IS

NOT THE SAME QUESTION.

IT WAS NOT A MISTAKE FOR THE

PRESIDENT TO GO INTO IRAQ

BECAUSE AT THE TIME --

Reporter: I'M NOT

ASKING YOU THAT.

I'M ASKING IN --

IN HINDSIGH

WELL, THE WORLD IS A BETTER

ACE.

Reporter: AS WE SIT

HERE IN 2015 --

PRESIDENT CANNOT MAKE

A DECISION O WHAT SOMEONE

MIGHT KNOW IN THE FUTURE.

Reporter:BBY JINDAL

IS CONSIDERING A

D HE SAYS HYPE

HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION ABOUT

THEASIS NOT THE RIGHT

ESTION TO ASK AT THIS

MOMENT IN TIME.

THE REASON WE HAVE

PROBLEMS WITH IRAQ IS NOT

BECAUSE OF GEORGE W. BUSH'S

STRENGTH, BUT BECAUSE OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

WEAKNESSES.

THIS PRESIDENT CREATED

WEAKNESSES.

Reporter: ABSENT FROTHE HARD HYPOTHETICAL

QUESTIONS ABOUT IRAQ,

HILLARY CLINTON HAS ANSWERED

LESS THAN A DOZEN MEDIA

QUESTIONS SINCE LAUNCHING

HER CAMPAIGN LAST MONTH, AND

HASN'TANSWERED A REPORTER'S

QUESTION IN WEEKS ON MANY

SUBJECTS

AND MANYTS

PRESIDENT OBAMA MADE A

MISTAKE BY CUTTING BACK ON

AMERICAN TROOPSN IRAQ.

SO WHAT THE AMERICA DID BY

THE BUSH AND OBAMA

ADMINISTRATIONS ARE LIKELY

TO GET MORE MEDIA ATTENTION

AND SCRUTINY AS THE 2016

CAMPAIGN HEATS UP, AS DOES

THE QUESTION OF WHAT NEEDS

TO DONE TO DEFEAT ISIS.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS. Efrem: ISIS HAS ALREADY

ESTABLIS ITS ISLAMIC

CALIPHATE IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA.

BUT IT WILL NOT STO THERE.

ITS VISION ENCOMPASSES THE

ENTIRE WORLD.

THEY HAVE MA NO SECRET OF

THEIR DESIRE TO STRIKE RIGHT

HERE IN AMERICA.

AS ERICK STAKELBECK REPORTS,

IT IS PUTTING FOOT SOLDIERS

IN PLA MAKE THAT DARK

VISION A REALITY.

Reporter: IT HAS BEEN

CALLED THE FIRST ISIS ATTACK

ON AMERICAN SOIL, WHEN TWO

ISIS SUPPORTERS ATTEMPTED TO

STORM AUHAMMAD

CARTOON-DRAWING CONTEST AND

MURDER EVERYONE INSIDE

EARLIER THIS MONTH IN

GARLAND, TEXAS, THESLAMIC

STATEICK TO CLAIM

RESPONSIBILITY.

THE ATTACKERS, BOTH AMERICAN

CITIZENS, WERE KILLED BY A

POLICE OFFICER BEFORE THEY

HAD AHANCE TO CARRY OUT

THEIR PLAN.

BUT THE ATTEMPTED ATTACK IN

S MAY HAVE BEEN A SIGN

OF THINGS TO COME.

FROM PENNSYLVAO

LINOIS NO OHIO

MINNESOTA, TO KANSAS,

FEDERAL AUTHORITIES HAVE

ARRESTED CLOSE TO A DOZEN

ISIS SUPPORTERS IN RECE

WEEKS.

WE'RE VERY DEFINITELY INNEW ENVIROT BECAUSE OF

ISIL'S EFFECTIVE USE OFp?

SOCIAL MEDIA, THE INRNET,

WHICH HAS THE ABILITY TO

REACH INTO THE HOMELAND AND

POSSIBLY INSPIRE OTHERS.

BECAUSE OF THE USE OF THE

INTERNET, WE COULD HAVE

LITTLE OR NO NOTIC IN

ADVANCE OF AN INDEPEND

ACTOR ATTEMPTING STRIKE.

Reporter: IN THE WAKE

OF THE ATTACK IN TEXAS,

JAMES COM JAMES COMEY SAYS

THAT THERE ARE POTENTIALLY

THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN

CITIZENS WHO FOLLOW ISIS

AND THE F.B.I. IS NOW

CONDUCTING INVESTIGATIONS

INTO ISIS-RELATED ACTIVITY

INTO ALL 50 U.S. STATES.

AND U.S. AUTHORITIES SAY 180

U.S. CITIZENS HAVE TRAVELLED

OVERSEAS TO JOIN ISIS, AND

AT LEAST 40 OF THEM HAVE

ALREADY RETURNED.

THEY SAY THEIR FIRST

OBLIGATION IS TO GO TO THE

CALIPHATE.

BUT IF THEYFEEL THEY'RE

UNABLE TO DOT, THAT

THY'LL ARRESTED AT THE

AIRPORT, THAT'S THEY

CARRY OUT AN ATTACK HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES.

Reporter: SHAKE MOHAMED

WAS O WHO MADE IT TO

SYRIA.

THE COLBUS, OHIO, RESIDENT

TRAINED WITH AN ISLAMIC

TERRORIST AND RETURNED

TO THE UNITED STATES WITHTO ATTACK THE

HOMELAND.

WAS ARRESTED BEFORE HE

HAD THE CHANCE.

MOHAMED HAD BEEN ON U.S.

AUTHORITIES' RADAR BEFORE HE

LEFT FOR SYRIA.

THAT'S WHY PATOLE

SAYS HE SHOULD HAVE NEVER

MADE IT THAT FAR.

THEY ALLOW HIM TO APPLY

FOR A PASSPORT, ALLOW HIM TO

TRAVEL TO TURKEY, HE GOES

INTO SYRIA, TRAINS, COMES

AND HE IS WANDERING THE

STREETS OF COUSFOR

EIGHT MONTHS.

Reporter: LIKE AOMB OFICAN

ISIS RECRUITS, MOHAMED

OF SOMALICENT.

MOST ARE IN MINNEALIS,

ST. PAUL, AN AREA WITH THE

LARGEST MUSLIM POPULATI IN

AMERICA.

WE HAVE TO REVISIT THESE

VISAS.

WE HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE HERE

FROM PLACES LIKE SAL

WITH MAJOR ISLAMIERROR

PROBLEMS AND WE KEEP LETTING

THEM INTO THE COUNTRY.

Reporter: THIS NATIONAL

SECURITY EXPERT TOLD CBN

NEWS THAT IS ONE WAY THE

UNITED STATES IS HEADING

DOWN A DANGEROUS PATH.

YOU'LL HAVE SHAR'IA

PAROLES IN PLACES LIKE THE

U.K.THAT'S NOT WHAT WE'RE FACING

HERE IN THE UNITED STATES,

SO IT IS HARD FOR US TO

BELIEVE THAT IS WHERE WE'RE

HEADED.

IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE

FUTURE OF THE UNITED STATES,

YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT EUROPE.

rter: THE GOAL OF

ISIS IS TO TURN AMERICAN AND

EUROPEAN CITIES INTO

GUELAAR ZONES, WITH

HE ATTACKS LIKE IN OTTAWA,

SYDNEY AND TEXAS OCCURRING

OWN A REGULAR BASIS.

FORMER PENTAGONOKESMA

J.D. GORDON TOLD CBN NEWS TO

DEFEAT THIS THAT, THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION MUST

FIRST ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT

EXISTS.

THE WHITE HOUSE CAN'T

EVEN NAME RADICAL ISLAM AS

THE ENEMY.

AND THE WHITE HOUSE, BARACK

OBAMA, WON'T EENTION

IT.

Reporter:RING THE

THREAT WON'T MAKE IT GO

AWAY.

ISIS RECENTLY BOASTED OF 71

TRAINED SOLDIERS IN 15

FFENT U.S. STATES, AND

PROMISED THAT THE ATTACK IN

TEXAS WAS ONLY THE

BEGINNING.

RICK STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: AN ILLINOIS

CONGRESSMAN IS SPEAKING UP

FO RELIGIOUS MINORITIES IN

IRAN, AND URGING SENIOR

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS TO

TAKE ACTION.

HE WANTS TO HAVE A SECURE

PA TO A FOR

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES UNDER

ATTACK BY IRAN.

HE WROTE, "TIME AFTER TIME

THE ISLAMIC REPUBLICAN OF

IRAN HAS SHOWN AN INTENTION

TO EXPOSE ITS EXTREMIST

VIEWS ON ALL IRANIANS,

REGARDLESS OF ITS FAITH OF

ITS CITIZENS.

WE MUST ACT TO PROTECT

AGAINST THE UNJUST IRANIAN

REGIME."

THERE IS A MEASURE THAT

REQUIRES THE WHITE HOUSE TO

TAKE RELIGIOUS FREEDOM INTO

ACCOUNT.

IF SIGNED INTO LAW, IT WOULD

BE THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY

THAT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

CONSIDERATIONS WOULD BE

REQUIRED FOR INTERNATIONAL

TRADE DISCUSSIONS.> NEW DETAILS SURROUNDING

THE DEADING BIKER GANGRAWL

IN WACO, TEXAS.

AUTHORITIES SAIDEY SENT

WARNINGS EARLIER THIS MONTH

THAT TENSIONS WERE GROWING

BETWEEN THE TWO GANGS THAT

CLASHED ON SUNDAY.NINE PEOPLE DIED, 18 WERE

INJURED, AND OFFICERS

ARRESTED NEARLY 200

SUSPECTED GANG MEMBERS.

VAL GANGS WERE M

ON SUNDAY AT A RESTAURANT SO

MEMBERS CODTTLE SOME OF

THEIR DIFFERENCES.

ABOUT AN HOUR TER IN THE

RESTROOM, THE FIGHTING

BEGAN.

NEARLY 35 YEARS OF LAW

ENFORCEMENT EXPE, THIS

THE MOST VIOLENT AND MOST

GRUESOME SCE I HAVE DEALT

WITH.

IT WAS REALLY, REALLY

SCARY.

Efrem: THE F.B.I. IS

CALLING OUTLAW BIKER GROUPS

A SERIOUS NATIONAL DOMESTIC

THREAT.

> THE U.S. STATE

DEPARTMENT IS MAKING A

PROPOSAL TO POST THOUSANDS

OF THE E-MAILS FROM FORMER

SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY

CLINTON BY NT JANUARY.

THE MOVE COMES IN RESPONSE

TO A FEDERAL COURT FILING

FROM A FREEDOM OF

INFORMATI LSUIT BY

VICE NEWS.

THE STTE DEPARTMENT SAYS

AFTER ITEVIE THE

E-MAILS, SOMEILL BE POSED

ONLINE.

THE REVIEW WILL TAKE UNTIL

TH END OF THE YEAR.INTON SAYS SHE WAN THE

RTMENT TO RELEASE THE

E-MAILS AS SOON AS

POSSIBLE.

> IRISH VOTERS WILL DECIDE

ON FRIDAY WHETHER THE

COUNTRY WILL BECOME THEST TO A SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE TO THEIR

CONSTITUTION THROUGH POPULAR

VOTE.

PEOPLE IN THE CITAL OF

DUBLIN ARE DIVIDED AHEAD OF

THE VOTE.

SUPPORTERS SAY IT I ABOUT,

ABOUT EQUALITY, BUT

NTS SAY IT IS NOT FAIR

TO CHILDREN.

CHILDREN SHOULD HAVE AN

EQUAL RIGHT TO A MOTHER AND

A FATHER WHERE POSSIBLE.

AND WHAT WE'RE BEING ASKED

TO VOTE ON IN THE REFERENDUM

IS THAT THERE ISO

DISTINCTIONTWEEN THE

RELATIONSHIP THAT A MAN

FORMS WITH A MAN A A MAN

FORMS WITH A WOMAN.

I'VE HAD BOTH TYPES OF

RELATIONSHIPS, AND I THINK

THERE A DISTINCT

DIFFERENCE.

Efrem: IRELAND LEGALIZE

PARTNERSHIPS FOR

SAME-SEX BACK IN 2011.

STUDENTS AT A WELSH

UNIVER VOTED TO BAN

BIBLES.

THEYRE A TRADITION WITH

THE UNIVERTY.

BUT THE DAILY MAIL REPORTS

NOW STUDENTS ARE VOTING TO

REMOVE THE GIDEON BIBLES

FROM DORM ROOMS, CLAIMING

THEY COULD BE POTENTIALLY

OFFENSIVE TO

NON-CHRISTIANS.

JAMES CAMERON, WH LEADS THE

BIBLE SOCIETY, SAYS THE

ANSWER IS NOT TO REMOVE

TRACES OF DIVERSITIY.

THAT SEEMS ILL-LIBERAL AND

INTOLERANT.

TEAMS, IS AMERICA TURNING

Efrem PRESIDENT OB

GOVERNMENT FROM PROVIDING

EQUIPMENT TO LOCAL POLICE.

LAST WE'RE CRITICS ARGUED

POLICE IN FERGUSON,

MISSOURI, SENT A MESSAF

ESCALATION WHEN THEY USED

ARMORED VEHICLES RING

RACIALLY-CHARGED PROTESTS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS THE

EQUIPMENT MADE FOR THE

BATTLEFIELD SHOULD NOT BE A

TOOL FOR AMERICAN CRIMINAL

JUSTICE.

IT WILL BLOCK GRENADE

LAUNCHERS, WEAPONIZED

AIRCRAFT AND FIRE ORMS

FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION OF

50 CALIBERS ARE HIGHER.

SOME CRITICS AUE AMERICA

IS BECOMING A POLICED

ATE.

THE MILITARY-STYLE QUESTIONS

HAS HAD MANY PEOPLE AFRAID

OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN

GOVERNMENT, FROM WASHINGTON

TO THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES,

JENNIFER WISHON LOOKS INTO

THIS TROUBLING TREND.

ptWHEN WE THINK

ABOUT CRIMEN R

NEIGHBORHOODS, WE DON'T

PICTURE THIS: WHILE

CRIME IN ARICA IS ACTUALLY

DECREASINNDREDS OF LAW

ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES USE

MILITARY-GRADE EQUIPMENT TO

POLICE THEIR STREETS.

THERE IS A DISTINCTú

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MILITARY

SOLDIERS Aú WHAT THEIR

MISSION IS, AND CIVILIANúú

POLICE, AND WHAT THEIR

MISSION IS SUPPOSED TO BE.

THOSE LINES ARE WAY BEYOND

BLURRED.

Reporter: CHERYL

CHOMLEY IS AUTHOR OF

"POLICE STATE U.," AMONG

HER CONCERNS IS AN INCREASE

IN THE OF POLI

S.W.A.T. TEAMS, UNITS

SPECIFICALLY TRAINED TO DEAL

WITH ACTIVE SHOOTERS D

HOSTAGE SITUATIONS.

A RECENT STUDY BY T ACLU

FINDS S.W.A.T. TEAMS OFTEN

DEPLOYED TO EXECUTE SEARCH

WARRANTS, A DECIS THAT

HAS MMED AND EVEN KILLED

PEOPLE.

ONE CASE IN POINT,

NTD BABY WHO WAS

NEARLY KILLEWHILE HE WASúú

SLEEPING.

úú THE LOCAL S.W.A.T. TEAM

BUSTED THROU THE DOOR,

THEY HAD A NO-KNOCK WARRANT,ú

AND THEY THREWTHE GRENADE

NDED IN THE BABY'SB AND HIS FACE WAS NEARLY

BLO OFF.

Reporter: TODAY AT

LEAST 500 POLICEEPARENTS

SO HAVE THE I.U.D.s.

THEY COME THROUGH THE

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THROUGHPRAMS DESIGNED TO

OAD EXCESSIVE

EQUIPMENT.

STATE AND LOCAL POLICE

DEPARTMENTS CAN GET

EQUIPMENT FROM THE

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE,

HOMELAND SECURITY AND OTHER

AGENCIES.

IT REALLY TOOKFF AFTER

9/ TO LEGITIMATE

CONCERNS OVER THE THREAT OF

TERRORISM.

TODAY NEARLY 500,000 PIECES

OF MILITARY EQUIPMENT HAS

BEEN TRANSFERRED TO POLICE

DEPARTMENTS, INCLUDING

ARMS, NIGHT DIVISION

DEVICES, HUMVEES, AND

AIRCRAFT.

SOME POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVEúú

EVEN SECURED SILENCERS.

ú I CAN'T IMAGINE

SCENARIO WHERE A CIVILIAN

POLICEICER WOULD NEED TO

SNEAK UP ON SOMEBODY AND

SHOOT THEM BEFORE THEY HAVE

THE PROCESS THROUGH A

COURT.

epter: BUT IT IS NOT

JUST DE-MILITARYIZED

EQUIPMENT THAT HAS PEOPLE

WORRIED.

AS I WATCH THIS, I

VERY UNCOMFORTABLE LOOKING

AT NATIONAL PARK S.WT.

TEAMS.

THESE ARE REGULATORY

AGENCIES.

THESE AREN'T LAW ENFORCEMENT

AGENCIES.

Reporter: T SITUATION

PROMPTED CONGRESSMAN'S CHRIS

MILLER TO DEMILITARIZE HIS

STATE.

CAN YOU THINK O A

REGULATORY ISSUE T IS SO

URGENT THAT YOU HA T HAVE

A S.W.A.T. TEAM IN, AND

YOU'VE GOT TOET THEM IN

RIGHT NOW?

BECAUSE THERE JUST AREN'T

ANY.

Reporter: DOZENS OF

REGULATORY AGENCIES HAVE

FIREARM AND ARREST

AUTHORITY, INCLUDING NOAH,

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT'S

WEATHER SERVICE, THE

DEPARTMENT OF IO

EVENI.R.S.

ITS INTIMIDATING TO THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE.

AND IT BREAKS THE TRUST

BETWEEN THE AMERICAN LE

AND THE FEDER GOVERNNT.

THAT'S A FRAGILE THING RIGHT

NOW ANYWAY.

Reporter: INSTEF

GETTING MACHINE GUNS AND

GRENADES TO.

F.D.A., THEY WANT TO LEAVE

LAW ENFORCEMENT TO AGENCIES

TASKED TO DEAL WITH IT, LIKE

THE Facebook.

JENNIFER WISHO CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.frem: UP NEXT, A RUDE

AWAKENING WILL SME

OF THE MISTAKES PEO MAKE

WHNG FOR RETIREMENT

AND SHOW YOU HOWOU CAN

AVOID THEM.

Efrem: WHEN IT COMES TO

RETIREMENT, AMERICANS AR

NOT PREPARED.

EXPERTS SAY NEARLY HALF OF

ALL OF US WON'T HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY TO LIVE ON, SO WEENT

OUR HEATHER SELLS TO EXPLORE

HOW YOU CAN AVOID COMMON

MISTAKES AND MAKEURE

YOU'RE SAVING ENOUGH.

Heather: LITTLE

ANDERSON IS NOT EVEN ONEAR OLD, AND HIS PARENTS

ARE ALREADY SAVING FOR HIS

COL AND THEIR

RETIREMENT.

IT'S ALWAYS BEEN A

PRIORITY BECAUSE THAT'S THE

WAY I WAS BROUGHT UP.

eather: FOR MANY

AMERICANS, THOUGH,

RETIREMENT SAVINGS ARE NOT A

REALITY, AND ONE BIG REASON

IS OUR SOCIETY PROMOTES

SPENDING, INSTANT

GRATIF

WE'RE ABSOLUTELY

ENCOURAGED TO SPEN

THAN SAVE.

THERE ARE ENCOURAGEMENTS IN

THE TAXCODE, THERE ARE

ENCOURAGEMTS O THE TVEVERY NIGHT.

Reporter: NEVIN ADAMS

OVERSTHE RETIREMENT

CONFIDENCE SURVEY.

THE GOOD NEWS: ABOUT

TWO-THIRDS OFERICS SAVE

FOR RETIREMENT.

THE BAD NEWS, WHO SAVE

DON'T USUALLY SAVE ENOUGH.

WE ESTIMATED THAT

ABOUT 53% OF AMERICANS WILL

HAVE ENOUGH, WILL NOT RUN

SHORT OF MONEY IN

RETINT.

OF COURSE, THAT MEANS THAT

47% STAND SOMET CHANCE

OF RUNNING SHORT OF MONEY

REIR

Heather: SOME CALL

THOSE CRISIS NUMBERS.

ADAMS DOESN'T GO THA FAR,

BUT NOTES IF INDIVIDUALS

DON'T PLAN FOR THE FUTURE,

IT WILL COST THE REST OF

US

AT SOME LEV, MANY

THEM, AS THEY ARE TODAY,

WILL BE DEPENDENT ON SOME OF

THE GOVERNMENT SOCIAL SAFETY

NETS, WHETHER IT IS SOCIAL

SECURITY, MEDICARE,

MEDICAID.

Reporter: SOME OF THE

BIGGEST SAVINGS MISTAKES

THAT PEOPLE MAKE, THEY

INCLUDE SMPLY NOT SAVING,

AND NOT SAVING ENOUGH.

FINANCIAL ADVISOR ROBIN TOLL

SAYS MANY PEOPLE LACKN

OVERALL PLAN.

PEOPLE SPEND MORE TIM

PLNNING THEIR NEXT VACATION

THAN THEY DO RETIREMENT.

Heather: ANOTHER COMMON

MISTAKE, NOT KNOWING HOW

MUCOU NEED TO

AM THINKS FOR MANY

PEOPLE, THE FEAR OF NEEDINGHUGE AMOUNT FOR RETIREMENT

PREVENTS THEM FROM EVEN

FIGURING OUT THAT NUMBER.

THINK THEY'RE AFRAID TO

KNOWHAT THAT ANSWER IS.

AND FOR A LOT OFE, T

ANSWER IS PROBABLY NOT AS

BAD AS YOU THINK IT IS.

I COME BACK WITH THE

QUESTION SAYING, YOU TELL ME

HOW LONG YOU PLAN TO LIVE

AND WHAT YOUR MONTHLY

EXPENSES ARE.

PRETTY MUCH IT CAN

CALCULATED OUT.

Heather:

CHOOSETOSAVE.COM HISTORY A

RETIREMENT CALCULATOR THAT

HELPS YOU QUICKLY FIGURE OUT

A COURSE OF ACTION.

AMANDA AND EDDIED

SAVING FROM THE BEGINNING OF

THEIR MARRIAGE.

THEY USED A FINANCIAL

PLANNER TO DETW

MUCH THE NEEDED.

AMANDA SA S WAS INSPIRED

BY A FRIEND AND "THE 700

CLUB."

I LEARNED A LOT FROM BEING

AROUND DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

EVENAT, ON A SHOW SAID IF

YOU'LL START SAVING THIS

AMOUNT OF MONEY, 25 YEARS

FROM NOW, YOU'LL H A NICE

NEST EGG.

Reporter: AND

COUPLE ADDS TO THEIR SAVINGS

WHEN HE GETS OVERTI PAY.

AND THEY TRY TO LIVE FRUG

GALLEY.

FRUGALLY.

SHE TESIS ME BECAUSE I

STILL TAKE MY LUNCH TO

WORK.

Reporter: AND THEY HAVE

KEPT SAVING EVEN DURING THE

BAD TIMES.

THAT'S ANOTHER MISTAKE,

HOLDING OFF SAVING WHILE THE

MARKETS ARE DOWN.

AND MANY DEVELOPED THAT

MINDSET DURING THE RECENT

RECESSION.

I THINK PEOPLE HAVE BEEN

HESITANT INVESTING AND

SAVING BECAUSE THEY SAID, I

BUILT THIS MONEY UP AND I

LOST IT.

I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE -- YOU

LOOK AND Y SCERCH OF

2009, THE STOCK MARKET HAS

GONE UP OVER 200%.

Reporter: ANOTHER TRAP:OVERESTIMATING HOW LONG YOU

THINK YOU'LL WORK.

THE SURVEY SHOWED VERY

CONSISTENTLY OVER THE

24-YEAR HISTORY THAT WORKERS

CONSISTENTLY THINK THEY'RE

GOING TO WORK LONGER TN

RETIREES TEUS THEY WERE

ACTUALLY ABLE TO WORK.

Reporter: FOLLOW THESE

TIPS: PLAN ON LIVING LONGER

THAN YOU THINK YOUT,

SAVE EXTRA FOR HEALTH CARE

BECAUSE THOSE COSTS ARE

TOUGH ESTIMATE.

MAXIMIZE YOUR EMPLOYERS 401K

MATCH, AND LOOK INTO A ROTH

RETIREMENT ACCOUNT.

AND, LASTLY, KNOW WHY YOU

ARE SAVING.

PAINT A PICTURE OF YUR

RETIREMENT.

IT WILL SHARPEN YOUR FOCUS

AND MOTIVATION.

FOR THE WILLIAMS, INVESTING

IS PART OF LIVING A GODLY

LIFE.

ND SAVING, EVEN WHILE

STARTING THEIR FAMILY,

BRINGSCE.

THE THING THAT WE'VE

LWAYS SAID IS THAT WE WILL

ALWAYS BE G STEWARDS OF

WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN US.ANDE'LL ALWAYS, I THINK,

MAINTAIN THAT MONEY IN A WAY

THAT WOULD BE GLOR

GLORIFYING.

IT IS SO FAR IN THE

FUTURE, BUT IT GIVES US ALOT OF TIME TO CONTINUE TO

ADD T OUR SAVINGS.

SO FOR ME,TH'S

COURAGEMENT.

Reporter: IN FACT, THE

LLIAMS ARE EVEN TH

BEYOND RETIREMENT.

THEY'RE FOLLOWING PROVERBS

13: 22, W SAYS, "A GOOD

MAN LEAVES AN INHERITANCE

HIS CHIREN'S CHILDREN."

THAT MEANS PLANNING NOT ONLY

FOR RETIREMENT AND FOR

LITTLE ANDERSON, BUT FOR HIS

CHILDREN AS WELL.
