Wendy: HE IS 6' 11,"

265 POUNDS, AND DOESN'T

WANT ANYONE TO INTERFERE

WITH HIS MISSION.

MY MISSION WAS TO

PREACH GOD'S WORD.

Wendy: DWIGHT HOWARD

LOOKS BACK AT HIS NBA

CAREER.

DON'T QUIT.

Wendy: PLUS...IT JUST

TAKES FIVE MINUTES, AND IT

COULD SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE.

GET THE SECRET ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, SOME OF

YOU WERE UP LATE, WATCHING

THE RETURNS OUT OF NEW

HAMPSHIRE.

AND IT WAS A HUGE WIN FOR

THE DONALD.

FRED BARNES' COLUMN SAYS

IT LOOKS LIKE NOTHING CAN

STOP HIM NOW FROM GETTING

THE NOMINATION.

HE WILL GO ON TO BE THE

NOMINEE OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

THAT STILL IS PROBABLY IN

QUESTION, BUT NOT TOO

MUCH.

THE REAL QUESTION FOR THE

REPUBLICANS IS, WHO IS

GOING TO DROP OUT?

WHO IS GOING TO STAY IN

THE RACE?

KASICH WAS SECOND IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE, BUT TRUMP BEAT

HIM TWO TO ONE.

SO WHAT'S GOING ON?

Wendy: YOU CALLED

KASICH LAST NIGHT.

Pat: ABSOLUTELY.

KASICH, WITHOUT QUESTION,

IS THE MOST ABLED PERSON

OUT THERE.

HE IS REALLY GOOD.

I THOUGHT AN UNBEATABLE

COMBINATION IS BUSH AND

KASICH.

BUT BUSH HASN'T COME

THROUGH QUITE AS STRONG.

HE MIGHT HIT IN THE

CAROLINA, BUT I DON'T

KNOW.

BUT TRUMP GOES IN THERE

WITH THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE

IN HIS BACK POCKET.

AND HE DOESN'T SPEND ANY

MONEY, TO SPEAK OF, BY

ADVERTISING.

HE GETS FREE ADVERTISING.

IT IS A PHENOMENON THAT I

CANNOT EXPLAIN, BUT IT IS

OUT THERE.

Wendy: ON THE

DEMOCRATIC SIDE, SOCIALIST

BERNIE SANDERS CRUSHED

HILLARY CLINTON, BUT

CLINTON IS STILL THE

FAVORITE TO GET HER

PARTY'S NOMINATION.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS MORE.

Reporter: REPUBLICAN

DONALD TRUMP AND DEMOCRAT

BERNIE SANDERS CRUSHED

THEIR COMPETITION IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE, LEAVING NO

QUESTION THAT VOTERS IN

THE GRANITE STATE ARE ANG

ANGRY AT WASHINGTON AND

WORRIED ABOUT THE ECONOMY.

WE ARE GOING TO MAKE

AMERICA SO GREAT AGAIN,

MAYBE GREATER THAN EVER

BEFORE.

TOGETHER WE HAVE SENT A

MESSAGE THAT WILL ECHO

FROM WALL STREET TO

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: WHILE THE

WINS WERE EXPECTED, THE

BIG STORY COMING OUT OF

NEW HAMPSHIRE ON THE

REPUBLICAN SIDE WAS THE

TIGHT RACE FOR THE PLACES

BEHIND DONALD TRUMP.

KASICH FINISHED A CLEAR

SECOND, WITH CRUZ, BUSH,

AND RUBIO CLOSE BEHIND.

THAT COULD END UP

PROLONGING THE REPUBLICAN

NOMINATING CONTEST AS

VOTERS DECIDE BETWEEN THE

DIFFERENT CANDIDATES.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SEE

YOU IN SEAT BELT, GO GET ONE.

[CHEERING]

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

CLINTON TRYING TO LOOK AT

HER LOSS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

POSITIVELY.

SAYING THAT THE OUTCOME

WAS EXPECTED, BUT THE

FUTURE LOOKS GOOD.

NOW WE TAKE THIS

CAMPAIGN TO THE ENTIRE

COUNTRY.

WE'RE GOING TO FIGHT FOR

EVERY VOTE IN EVERY STATE.

Reporter: BUT AS THE

CANDIDATES NOW BEGIN A

BATTLE FOR THE SOUTH, SOME

ANALYSTS SAY SANDERS MAY

NOT BE AS EASY TO SHAKE

OFF AS CLINTON PREDICTS,

ESPECIALLY IF HE CAN CLOSE

HIS POLLING GAP IN SOUTH

CAROLINA AND BEYOND.

ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE,

THE TOP QUESTION MOVING

FORWARD: WHO MOVES ON TO

SOUTH CAROLINA, WHO DROPS

OUT NOUT, AND WHO BECOMES

THE PRIMARY ALTERNATIVE TO

DONALD TRUMP?

Pat: I WOULDN'T BE IN

HILLARY CLINTON'S SHOES

FOR EVERYTHING IN THE

WORLD.

IF SHE GETS INDICTED ON

ALL OF THIS SCANDAL, IT

WILL CRIPPLE THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

> OUR POLITICAL

CORRESPONDENT, DAVID

BRODY, JOINS US NOW FROM

MANCHESTER.

IS KASICH, IN YOUR

OPINION, A ONE-TRICK PONY?

OR DOES HE HAVE SOME LEGS

TO GO TO THE NEXT PART OF

THE RACE?

David: I THINK HE IS

A ONE-TRICK PONY AT THIS

CASE.

BUT WILL MARK ARUBA AND

JEB BUSH KIND OF FADE AND

GET OUT OF THE RACE, AND

THEN KASICH BECOMES THE

ESTABLISHMENT ALTERNATIVE.

KASICH DID, QUOTE,"WELL"

HERE ON TUESDAY NIGHT.

BUT THEN AGAIN, WHAT IS

"WELL?"

HE LOST TO TRUMP TWO TO

ONE.

THE PROBLEM IS HE WAS

RUNNING FOR, IN ESSENCE,

GOVERNOR OF NEW HAMPSHIRE.

BASICALLY HE WAS SPENDING

A LOT OF TIME HERE.

THE PROBLEM IS, HE IS NOT

GOING TO DO WELL IN SOUTH

CAROLINA.

TRUMP'S THE GUY TO BEAT IN

SOUTH CAROLINA.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS ANY

QUESTION IN THAT.

AND TED CRUZ IS OFFIUSLY

GOINOBVIOUSLYGOING TO DO WELL THERE.

60% OF EVANGELICALS MAKE

UP THAT PRIMARY AUDIENCE

AND SOUTH CAROLINA.

Pat: I READ AN

ARTICLE TODAY INDICATING

THAT TRUMP IS AT THIS

POINT BASICALLY

UNBEATABLE.

HE IS JUST GOING TO CARRY

IT ON THROUGH.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

David: I DON'T KNOW

ABOUT UNBEATABLE, BUT I

WILL TELL YOU THIS, IF

DONALD TRUMP WINS SOUTH

CAROLINA, WE CAN BASICALLY

GO DOWN THAT UNBEATABLE

SCENARIO.

AND WHY IS THAT?

BECAUSE AFTER SOUTH

CAROLINA, COMES THE F.C.C.

PRIMARY STATES, AND THE

PROBLEM IS WITH DONALD

TRUMP WINNING NEW

HAMPSHIRE AND POTENTIALLY

WINNING SOUTH CAROLINA, HE

IS GOING TO HAVE SO MUCH

MOMENTUM, THAT TRUMP TRAIN

COULD BE LEADING THE

STATION IN THE F.C.C.

PRIMARIES.

DONALD TRUMP HAS HAD HUGE

RALLIES DOWN THERE,

20,000, 30,000, AND HE IS

A FORCE IN THE SOUTH.

IT IS NOT JUST TED CRUZ.

AND SO HE IS A FORCE TO BE

RECKONED WITH.

BOY, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

SCRATCHING THEIR HEADS

OVER IT, BUT HERE HE IS,

PAT.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THE

GOVERNOR OF NEW JERSEY DID

A NUMBER ON POOR OLD

RUBIO.

IT WAS ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL.

IT DIDN'T HELP HIM MUCH,

BUT IT CERTAINLY DID WOUND

RUBIO.

WHERE DO BUSH AND RUBIO GO

FROM HERE, IN YOUR

OPINION?

David: BOY, IT IS

GOING TO BE A NASTY,

DRAG-DOWN FIGHT IN SOUTH

CAROLINA, NOT ONLY BETWEEN

TRUMP AND CRUZ, BUT BUSH

AND RUBIO.

THE BUSH CAMPAIGN ALREADY

PUTTING OUT AN INTERNAL

MEMO SAYING IT IS TIME TO

BASICALLY KNEECAP, TAKE

DOWN RUBIO AND KASICH IN

SOUTH CAROLINA.

WE'VE GOT TWO DIFFERENT

FIGHTS GOING ON IN SOUTH

CAROLINA: TRUMP AND

CRUZ -- IT'S GOING TO BE

NASTY.

AND THEN BUSH, RUBIO,

KASICH, AND BUSH IS GOING

TO BE THE AN TAG NIST.

ANTAGONIST.

BUSH WAS THIRD IN IOWA,

BUT SOUTH CAROLINA LOOKS

LIKE IT IS GOING TO BE A

TRUMP/CRUZ AFFAIR, AND OWE SO

RUBIO IS PROBABLY NOT

GOING TO DO SO WELL.

YOU WONDER WERE KASICH

WINS, MAYBE IN MICHIGAN.

BUT THAT IS FAR DOWN THE

ROAD.

AND THE TRUMP TRAIN MAY BE

LEAVING THE STATION AT

THAT POINT.

AND THERE IS THE OHIO

PRIMARY, WHERE KASICH

COULD DO WELL, BUT WILL HE

STILL BE IN THE RACE BY

THEN.

Pat: WHAT ABOUT

SANDERS, HE IS A

SOCIALIST, IN HIS 70s,

AND AT WHAT POINT DOES HE

DROP TO THE WAY SIDE?

AND THERE IS NOBODY TO

TAKE OVER AGAINST HILLARY

CLINTON IF HE DROPS OUT.

IF YOU'RE LOSING TO A

74-YEAR-OLD SOCIALIST,

YOU'VE GOT SOME ISSUES, NO

QUESTION ABOUT IT.

BERNIE SANDERS WON UP HERE

WITH YOUNG VOTERS AND ON

THE TRUST ISSUE.

AND THIS IS A BAD THING

FOR THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN,

BERNIE SANDERS WON WITH

FEMALE VOTERS.

SO NOW THERE IS THIS

PERCEPTION THAT HILLARY

CLINTON WILL HAVE TO DO A

NEW OUT REACH TO A

YOUNGER, MORE FEMALE CROWD

SHE USED TO HAVE 20-PLUS

YEARS AGO.

SHE GOES TO NEVADA, SOUTH

CAROLINA, WHERE SHE IS

DOING MUCH BETTER IN THE

POLLS, BUT BERNIE IS GOING

TO GET A BOUNCE FROM THIS

FOR SURE.

I WANT TO BRING UP

SOMETHING ABOUT TED CRUZ,

BECAUSE WITH LACK OF

SLEEP, I MAY FORGET IT,

PAT.

TED CRUZ'S THIRD PLACE

FINISH IN NEW HAMPSHIRE,

THAT IS A BIG STORY.

TED CRUZ IS THE,

QUOTE,"EVANGELICAL

CANDIDATE," OR AT LEAST

THAT'S IN QUOTES.

AND HE COMES TO NEW

HAMPSHIRE AND DOES A

PRETTY SOLID THIRD.

THAT'S A TEAVANGELICAL

MESSAGE.

I THINK THE TRUMP

CELEBRITTRUMP/CRUZTHING IS GOING TO GET RE

AL

NASTY.

Pat: NOT ONLY HAVE I

OBSERVED THIS, BUT I'VE

BEEN IN ONE OF THEM, BUT

I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING

LIKE THIS EVER.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

David: NO, I HAVEN'T

EITHER.

IT IS REALLY AN AMAZING

RACE, TO QUOTE, I BELIEVE,

A CBS SHOW.

DONALD TRUMP HAS PLAYED TO

THE ANGRY ELECTORATES THAT

ARE OUT THERE.

THEY'RE FRUSTRATED AND

ANGRY.

A LOT OF EVANGELICALS ARE

SICK AND TIRED OF WHAT HAS

BEEN GOING ON AS WELL.

REMEMBER, DONALD TRUMP

COMES IN SECOND IN THE

EVANGELICAL VOTE.

HE DID IT IN IOWA, AND

HE'LL PROBABLY DO IT AGAIN

IN SOUTH CAROLINA.

HE IS PLAYING TO A SICK

AND TIRED AUDIENCE.

THAT'S WHY CHRIS CHRISTIE

WILL MOST LIKELY BE OUT OF

THIS RACE BECAUSE HE

WANTED THAT ANGRY

ELECTORATE.

DONALD TRUMP TOOK UP THE

REAL ESTATE THAT CHRIS

CHRISTIE WANTED.

AND I'LL TELL YOU, PAT,

THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED

AN INTANGIBLE.

THERE IS A MOTION IN

POLITICS, AND THERE IS A

GREAT BOOK CALLED "THE

POLITICS OF EMOTING," AND

HE TALKS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE

DON'T REALLY VOTE WITH

THEIR BRAIN; THEY VOTE

WITH THEIR HEART.

AND DONALD TRUMP HAS

BASICALLY FORMED A LOVE

CONNECTION WITH MANY OF

THE VOTERS AROUND THIS

COUNTRY.

IT IS REALLY ASTONISHING.

Pat: HE IS COMING

DOWN HERE TO BE ON HIS

PROGRAM, AND BE AT REGENT

IN ANOTHER WEEK OR TWO,

AND HE'S BEEN A FRIEND OF

MINE FOR YEARS AND YEARS

AND YEARS.

WHO IN THE WORLD WOULD

HAVE THOUGHT THIS?

I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT THIS

GUY -- HE IS A GAMBLING

AND REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER,

AND HE WINS IT ALL.

> IN OTHER NEWS, ONE OF

OUR TOP OFFICIALS IS

WARNING THE ISLAMIC

TERRORISTS FROM ISIS WILL

TRY MORE ATTACKS ON THE

UNITED STATES THIS YEAR.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT STORY

FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU

IN WASHINGTON.

John: THAT IS RIGHT,

PAT.

THAT WARNING FROM THE

DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL

INTELLIGENCE, JAMES

CLAPPER, AT A HEARING ON

CAPITOL HILL.

CLAPPER TESTIFIED THAT

ISIS WILL EITHER TRY TO

LAUNCH AN ATTACK ON THE

U.S. OR WILL INSPIRE

TERRORISM HERE, EVEN

WITHOUT DIRECT GUIDANCE OF

ISIS LEADERSHIP.

HE ALSO CALLED THE RADICAL

ISLAMIC GROUP, QUOTE,"THE

PREEMINENT TERROR THREAT,"

SAYING ISIS CAN DIRECT AND

INSPIRE ATTACKS AGAINST A

WIDE RANGE OF TARGETS

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND CLAPPER WARNED NORTH

KOREA IS NOW THE TOP

NUCLEAR THREAT TO THE

UNITED STATES, AHEAD OF

IRAN.

HE SAYS THE NORTH IS

PRODUCING NUCLEAR MATERIAL

AND WORKING AN A BALLISTIC

MISSILE CAPABLE OF BEING

LAUNCHED FROM A SUBMARINE.

SENATORS ARE CONSIDERING A

BILL THAT TARGETS THE

REGIME'S ABILITY TO ACCESS

CASH BECAUSE THE NORTH HAS

BEEN DEVELOPING

MINIATURIZED NUCLEAR

WARHEADS AND LONG-RANGE

MISSILES TO DELIVER THEM.

JAPAN IS ALSO LOOKING TO

IMPOSE SANCTIONS TO

PROTEST THE ROCKET LAUNCH.

THE EXPERTS REVEAL NORTH

KOREA HAS BEEN EVADING

EXISTING SANCTIONS, USING

AIRLINES, SHIPS, AND THE

INTERNATIONAL TRADE SYSTEM

FOR ITS NUCLEAR AND

BALLISTIC PROGRAM.

Pat: I WAS IN NORTH

KOREA, WITH THE FIRST

MARINE DIVISION, WAY BACK

WHEN, AND WE HAD A CHANCE

TO WIN UP THERE, BUT WE

DIDN'T.

WE THREW IT AWAY.

I WORRY ABOUT NORTH KOREA.

THEY'RE A TINY, TINY,

LITTLE COUNTRY.

THEY'RE G.D.P. IS LIKE A

LITTLE PINPRICK.

IT IS NOTHING COMPARED TO

THE UNITED STATES.

BUT EVERYTHING THEY HAVE

IS FROM CHINA.

SO IF CHINA CONTINUES TO

TRADE, CONTINUES TO OPEN

UP CREDIT, CONTINUES TO

LET THEM DO WHAT THEY DO,

THEN THE NORTH KOREANS ARE

NOT GOING TO BE DISSUADED

FROM THEIR ACTION BECAUSE

OF SOME SANCTIONS.

BUT THE QUESTION IS: IF

THEY HAVE AN

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

MISSILE CAPABLE OF

REACHING THE UNITED STATES

OF AMERICA WITH A NUCLEAR

PAYLOAD, WE ARE IN SERIOUS

TROUBLE.

IT WOULD ONLY TAKE ONE

NUKE TO WIPE OUT

LOS ANGELES OR SAN

FRANCISCO OR CHICAGO OR

ANYTHING ELSE AND THE

DAMAGE AND THE TRAGEDY AND

THE DEVASTATION TO THIS

NATION WOULD BE BEYOND

CALCULATION.

AND WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO

DO ABOUT IT?

WE HAVE A PRESIDENT THAT

ISN'T GOING TO DO

ANYTHING.

WE COULD HAVE BEATEN THEM

A LONG TIME AGO WITH NO

TROUBLE AT ALL.

THE TROUBLE IS IF WE MOVE

TOO FAST AGAINST NORTH

KOREA, THEY HAVE A BIG

FORCE RIGHT CLOSE TO THE

BORDER OF SEOUL, WITH

SOUTH KOREA, AND THEY

COULD LET ARTILLERY BAR

RAGEBARAGES GO FORTH AND THEY

COULD DEMOLISH SEOUL,

WHICH IS A PROSPEROUS

CITY.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE

BEEN OVER THERE.

AND SO SOUTH KOREA DOESN'T

WANT THAT.

IT'S A CRIME FAMILY

MASQUERADING AS A NATION,

AS ONE OF OUR CONGRESSMAN

SAID, AND THAT'S WHAT IT

IS.

KIM JONG-IL AND HIS

PRODGINY ARE CRIMINALS.

IT NEEDS SOME PRAYER AND

SOME MAJOR THOUGHT.

I DON'T THINK WE HAVE

ANYBODY WHO IS PUTTING HIS

MIND ON WHAT TO DO NEXT

THAT IS GOING TO RESTRAIN

THOSE PEOPLE.

JOHN?

John: PAT, A MAJOR

SETBACK FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

IN A 5-4 DECISION, THE

SUPREME COURT HAS PUT A

STOP TO THE PRESIDENT'S

SWEEPING PLAN TO QUACK

DOWTO CRACKDOWN ON CARBON EMISSIONS.

IT WAS DESIGNED TO CUT

DOWN ON THE EMISSIONS BY A

THIRD BY THE YEAR 2030.

BUT THE COURT PUT THE PLAN

ON HEALED.

IHOLD.

IT IS A BIG VI VICTORY FOR

THOSE WHO CALL IT AN

UNPRECEDENTED POWER GRAB.

THE JUSTICES WERE WON OVER

BY STRONG ARGUMENTS

AGAINST THOSE RULES.

Pat: THIS IS A GRAB

BY OUR GOOD FRIEND OBAMA.

WHO IS TRYING TO JAM IT

DOWN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S

THROATS BY EVERY MEANS

KNOWN TO MAN.

I CONGRATULATE THE SUPREME

COURT FOR STANDING IN HIS

WAY, BUT THEY HAD A WHOLE

LOT OF STATES LINING UP,

OPPOSING HIM BRINGING THAT

LAWSUIT.

SO IT WASN'T JUST A FEW

LONE PLAINTIFFS.

IT WAS A MAJOR FORCE

SAYING, THIS IS A KILLER.

WE CAN'T LET IT HAPPEN.

> SO IT'S THE DAY AFTER

THE ELECTION, AND WHAT

IS -- DID YOU STAY UP

WATCHING IT?

Wendy: I DID.

IT WAS A GREAT NIGHT TO BE

AN AMERICAN AND TO SEE OUR

DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM WORKING.

Pat: IT WAS AMAZING.

Wendy: IF YOU LIKE

THE RESULTS, IT WAS

FANTASTIC.

Pat: IT WAS

REMARKABLE.

I DON'T THINK ANYBODY IS

SURPRISED.

BUT I THINK KASICH'S

SHOWING WAS IMPORTANT.

AND I BELIEVE -- BUT EVEN

SO, THE FACT OF AS STRONG

AS HE WAS, AND HE WAS VERY

STRONG, TRUMP HAD HIM 2-1.

Wendy: EVERYBODY WAS

SO EXCITED ABOUT THE

SECOND PLACE, THAT THEY

REALLY WEREN'T EVEN

TALKING ABOUT THAT.

IT WAS AN INTERESTING

NIGHT.

Pat: DEFINITELY.

Wendy: STILL AHEAD,

THE EIGHT-TIME ALL-STAR

NBA POWERHOUSE AND ONCE

THE SUPERMAN OF THE

SLAM-DUNK, DWIGHT HOWARD,

TALKS ABOUT HIS MISSION ON

AND OFF THE COURT.

BUT, FIRST, WHAT CAN GET

THE U.S. ECONOMY GOING

AGAIN?

YOU'LL FIND OUT WHEN WE

COME BACK.

Pat: IF YOU'RE AN

INVESTOR, YOU'RE WONDERING

WHERE DO I PUT MY MONEY?

AND I DON'T THINK MANY

PEOPLE HAVE THE ANSWER

RIGHT NOW.

THE STOCK MARKET HAS BEEN

IN FREEFALL SINCE THE

BEGINNING OF JANUARY, AND

THE U.S. ECONOMY HAS BEEN

STAGNATING FOR YEARS.

SO WHAT IS THE CURE?

IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS

CUTTING TAXES ON BUSINESS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: THE LATEST

FIGURES SHOW THE ECONOMY

BARELY MOVING IN THE LAST

THREE MONTHS OF 2015.

WITH ECONOMIC GROWTH

COMING AT JUST 7/10THS OF

1% IN THE FOURTH QUARTER.

EVEN THOUGH UNEMPLOYMENT

HAS FALLEN, MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS HAVE SIMPLY

GIVEN UP LOOKING FOR WORK.

AND THOSE WHO ARE WORKING

FACE ANOTHER PROBLEM:

THEIR INCOME HASN'T BEEN

GOING UP MUCH IN RECENT

YEARS EITHER.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?

IS IT MORE GOVERNMENT

SPENDING OR PROGRAMS OR

SOMETHING ELSE?

SOME ECONOMISTS POINT TO

ANOTHER ANSWER.

THEY SAY THE TAXES ON

AMERICAN BUSINESSES ARE

JUST TOO HIGH.

THE FEDERAL CORPORATE TAX

RATE IS 35%, ONE OF THE

HIGHEST IN THE WORLD.

EVEN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES

HAVE LOWER TAX RATES.

SOME CRITICS SAY U.S.

BUSINESSES HAVE WRITEOFFS,

BUT CRITICS POINT TO

BUSINESSES LIKE BURGER

KING AND OTHERS WHO HAVE

MOVED THEIR HEADQUARTERS

TO OTHER COUNTRIES TO PAY

LOWER TAXES.

EVEN PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

TALKED ABOUT CUTTING THE

TAX RATE.

BUT SO FAR NOTHING HAS

HAPPENED IN WASHINGTON.

AND NOTHING WILL, UNLESS

THE NEXT PRESIDENT,

WHOEVER THAT IS, SUPPORTS

IT.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: THANKS, DALE.

WITH US IS STEPHEN

MOORE, AN ECONOMIST WITH

THE HERITAGE FOUNDATION.

IT IS A PLEASURE TO HAVE

YOU WITH US.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE

ELECTION?

I'M SO HAPPY.

I'M HAPPY BECAUSE YOU KNOW

WHAT WE FOUND OUT LAST

NIGHT, PAT?

SHE IS NOT GOING TO BE

PRESIDENT.

SHE IS NOT GOING TO BE

PRESIDENT.

SHE IS ONLY GETTING 40% OF

THE DEMOCRATIC VOTE.

I HAVE A LOT OF LIBERAL

DEMOCRATIC FRIENDS WHO ARE

VERY NERVOUS BECAUSE THEY

REALIZE THEY'VE GOT A

LOSING TICKET.

ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE, I

THINK TRUMP IS AN AMAZING

POLITICAL PHENOMENON.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN

ANYTHING LIKE THIS?

Pat: NEVER, NEVER,

NEVER.

IF WE HAD BEEN SITTING

HERE A YEAR AGO, AND I

TOLD YOU THAT DONALD TRUMP

WAS IN FIRST PLACE AND

COULD BE THE REPUBLICAN

NOMINEE -- I HAVE TO SAY

THIS, AND I DON'T HAVE A

HORSE IN THIS RACE, BUT I

THOUGHT HIS SPEECH LAST

NIGHT WAS PHENOMENAL.

IT WAS PATRIOTIC.

IT WAS PRO-BUSINESS AND

PRO-AMERICAN.

HE COMES ACROSS AS THE

ANTI-OBAMA.

HE IS A MAN OF

ACCOMPLISHMENT, A

BUSINESSMAN WHO HAS HIRED

PEOPLE.

HE A VERY PATRIOTIC.

BUT IT AIN'T OVER.

Pat: ALL OF THESE

YOUNG PEOPLE, AND HERE IS

THIS OLD MAN, THIS OLD

SOCIALIST, SAYING ALL

THESE THINGS -- I DON'T

KNOW IF YOU LISTENED TO

HIS SPEECH, BUT THEY KEPT

CHEERING OVER AND OVER

AGAIN.

HE GOT 80% OF THE

VOTERS UNDER 39.

THAT'S THE AMAZING THING.

FIRST OF ALL, IT IS AN

INDICTMENT OF OUR

EDUCATION SYSTEM.

WHEN THESE COLLEGE

GRADUATES THINK THAT

SOCIALISM IS AN ECONOMIC

MODEL THAT WORKS.

SHOW ME ANYWHERE IN THE

WORLD, BERNIE SANDERS,

WHERE SOCIALISM HAS

WORKED.

LOOK AT GREECE, FOR

GOODNESS SAKES, IT IS

BANKRUPT.

LOOK AT ARGENTINA.

LOOK AT FRANCE.

LOOK AT DETROIT.

LOOK AT PUERTO RICO.

Pat: HE KEPT -- HOW

MANY BILLIONAIRES HAVE WE

GOT?

EVEN IF YOU TOOK EVERY

PIPENNY FROM EVERY

BILLIONAIRE, YOU COULDN'T

EVEN RUN THE GOVERNMENT

FOR TWO OR THREE MONTHS.

IF YOU WANT THE BIG

PROGRAMS THAT HILLARY

CLINTON HAS ENDORSED OR

BERNIE SANDERS, YOU KNOW

WHERE THE MONEY HAS TO

COME FROM?

THE MIDDLE CLASS.

THEY'RE GOING TO RAISE

TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS

IF THEY WIN, BUT THEY'RE

NOT.

Pat: THE MIDDLE CLASS

HAS REALLY BEEN HURT.

WHAT IS YOUR SOLUTION?

THERE IS A MALAISE THAT IS

GOING ON.

THAT'S A GOOD WAY TO

DESCRIBE WHAT IS GOING ON

IN THE ECONOMY.

THE IRONY OF OBAMA'S

PRESIDENCY -- THERE HAS

BEEN A RECOVERY, BUT

SANDERS IS RIGHT, ALL OF

THE GAMES UNDER OBAMA --

ANYBODY WHO THINKS THE

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS 5%,

THAT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

LIES.

THE REAL UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

IS 10% BECAUSE WE'RE NOT

COUNTING PEOPLE WHO HAVE

BECOME SO DISCOURAGED THEY

JUST DROPPED OUT.

AND THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS

ACTUALLY LOST INCOME

DURING THE OBAMA

PRESIDENCY.

I'VE BEEN STUDYING THIS

FOR 30 YEARS.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

I'VE SEEN AN ECONOMIC

RECOVERY FROM RECESSION

WHERE THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS

LOST GROUND.

THAT'S WHY THE MIDDLE

CLASS IS SO ANGRY AND

CRANKY.

Pat: WHAT DOES THE

MIDDLE CLASS GUY DO TO

MAKE ENDS MEET?

IT IS TOUGH.

THAT'S WHY WHEN BARACK

OBAMA DID HIS SUPER BOWL

SHUFFLE, PEOPLE WERE

SAYING, WHAT COUNTRY IS HE

TALKING ABOUT.

PEOPLE, WHEN THEY PAY

THEIR BILLS AT THE KITCHEN

TABLE, YOU SEE THE RISING

COST OF TUITION, THE

RISING COST OF HEALTH

CARE, THEY'RE HAVING A

HARD TIME.

WHEN YOU ASK WHAT DO WE DO

ABOUT THIS ECONOMY?

WHY NOT HELP BUSINESSES.

WHEN DID WE CREATE

VILLAINS OUT OF

BUSINESSMEN AND WOMEN WHO

CREATE JOBS IN THIS

COUNTRY.

WE NEED TO HONOR THE MEN

AND WOMEN WHO CREATE JOBS.

Pat: YOU'VE GOT THE

FEDERAL TAX, 35% --

CLOSE TO 40%, ACTUALLY,

THE BUSINESS TAX.

Pat: AND THEY HAVE TO

PAY STATE TAXES.

IF YOU GO OUT IN

CALIFORNIA, IT IS

DRACONIAN.

AND THEN THERE ARE OTHER

FEES ON TOP OF THAT.

AND AT WHAT DISADVANTAGE

ARE WE?

HUGE.

YOU JUST HAD THAT LITTLE

SEGMENT ABOUT ALL OF THESE

COMPANIES THAT ARE

LEAVING.

BURGER KING, ONE OF OUR

GREATEST DRUG COMPANIES,

PFIZER, HAS LEFT.

WALGREENS HAS TALKED ABOUT

LEAVING.

SENT THE ALARM BELLS BE

GOING OFF IN WASHINGTON,

THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG

HERE, WHEN OUR COMPANIES

ARE LEAVING FOR CANADA,

IRELAND, AND CHINA.

TRUMP IS RIGHT ABOUT THIS,

YOU HAVE TO BRING THESE

COMPANIES BACK TO AMERICA.

THE WAY YOU DO THAT, CUT

THE TAX RATE.

REAGAN HAD PROVED WHEN YOU

CUT THE TAX RATES,

BUSINESSES COME BACK AND

YOU CREATE MORE JOBS.

Pat: SOME OF THESE

DEMOGOGUES ARE SAYING, WE

NEED TO PUNISH THESE

PEOPLE.

THEY'RE JUST TAX SCOFF

LAWS AND THEY'RE TAKING

ADVANTAGE OF THESE GREAT

COUNTRY, AND THAT IS NOT

TRUE AT ALL.

MY FATHER, WHO IS 93

YEARS OLD, A WORLD WAR II

VETERAN -- FOR 40 YEARS,

HE PUT THE SWEAT EQUITY

INTO HIS SMALL BUSINESS

AND BUILT IT UP.

HE BECAME A MILLIONAIRE

BECAUSE HE PUT SO MUCH --

HE USED TO BE GONE A LOT.

MY POINT IS, WE SHOULD

HONOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO

BUILT BUSINESSES.

I LOVE THAT ABOUT DONALD

TRUMP.

I LOVE THAT ABOUT BILL

GATES OR STEVE JOBS.

TO TREAT THEM AS IF THEY

ARE STEALING FROM OUR

COUNTRY WHEN THEY CREATED

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

JOBS FOR OUR COUNTRY --

Pat: PRESIDENT OBAMA

HAS DONE THAT.

WE HAVE NEVER HAD A

PRESIDENT WHO HAS SET ONE

CLASS AGAINST THE OTHER

THE WAY THIS MAN HAS.

AND HIS BUDGET THAT

CAME OUT, WHICH DIDN'T GET

MUCH PUBLICITY -- HIS LAST

BUDGET HAS TRILLIONS OF

DOLLARS OF NEW TAXES.

DON'T YOU LOVE -- I'M HERE

IN VIRGINIA BEACH, $1.55 A

GALLON FOR GAS.

OBAMA WANTS TO PUT A $10 A

BARREL CHARGE ON THIS, AND

THAT IS GOING TO RAISE THE

GAS PRICE.

MR. PRESIDENT, GIVE THE

MIDDLE CLASS A BREAK HERE.

Pat: AND THE GREEN

ENERGY AND OTHERS THAT

HAVEN'T WORKED --

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT HOW

TO REBUILD THIS ECONOMY --

I'LL TELL YOU ONE WAY WE

CAN DO THIS.

WE HAVE MORE OIL AND GAS

AND COAL THAN ANY OTHER

COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.

THOSE ARE GOOD-PAYING

JOBS.

THIS PRESIDENT WANTS TO

KILL THE COAL INDUSTRY.

WE'RE HERE IN VIRGINIA.

THIS IS A COAL STATE.

THERE ARE WHOLE TOWNS THAT

HAVE BEEN DECIMATED BY

THIS MAN.

WE COULD DO THIS, PAT.

WRITE THIS DOWN.

IN FIVE YEARS, IF WE GET A

PRO-AMERICA, PRO-ENERGY

PRESIDENT, WE COULD BE

ENERGY INDEPENDENT FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN 50 YEARS.

THAT MEANS WE CAN BE

PRODUCING MORE ENERGY THAN

WE'RE BUYING.

WE DON'T HAVE TO BUY FROM

THE MIDDLE EAST, AND THAT

IS GOING TO KEEP US SAFER.

WHY IN THE WORLD WOULDN'T

WE WANT TO DO THAT?

Pat: BECAUSE OF

PROGRESSIVE IDEOLOGY.

BUT THE PEOPLE BEING

HURT BY THAT IDEOLOGY IS

THE MIDDLE CLASS.

I DON'T WANT TO END THIS

ON A PESSIMISTIC NOTE.

I THINK WE GET A

PRO-AMERICA, PRO-BUSINESS

PRESIDENT, WE'RE GOING TO

SEE A BOOM IN 2017.

I REALLY BELIEVE THAT.

Pat: IT HAS BEEN

RESTRAINED FOR SO LONG.

YUP.

IT IS TIME TO EXPLODE.

Pat: STEPHEN, THANK

YOU SO MUCH.

GREAT TOB WITH YOU.

Pat: THERE IS HOPE IN

THIS GREAT NATION.

THE PYGMIES HAVE HELD US

DOWN, AND NOW LET'S GET

RID OF THE PYGMIES AND LET

THE GIANTS STAND UP.

WENDY?

Wendy: GREAT

INTERVIEW.

> UP NEXT, HOUSTON

ROCKET DWIGHT HOWARD TALKS

ABOUT HIS EXPLOSIVE

CAREER.

EVERYBODY MADE ME LOOK

LIKE THE WORST GUY IN THE

WORLD.

A COACH KILLER, A GUY WHO

HATES HIS TEAM -- ALL OF

THIS STUFF I AM NOT.

Wendy: FIND OUT WHY

HIS NBA SUPERSTAR IS A MAN

WITH A MISSION, AND HEAR

HOW NOTHING CAN STOP HIM.

Pat: WELL, YOU'RE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU

WITH US IN THIS DAY AFTER

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE

ELECTION.

AND WE'RE ON THE WAY.

IT WILL BE ONE RIGHT AFTER

THE OTHER, COMING UP

QUICKLY.

> ONCE NICKNAMED

SUPERMAN, DWIGHT HOWARD IS

AN NBA ICON.

IN 2004, HE CAME INTO THE

LEAGUE STRAIGHT OUT OF

HIGH SCHOOL, STILL WEARING

BRACES ON HIS TEETH.

HE GREW UP IN FRONT OF

MILLIONS OF FANS, MAKING

SOME VERY PUBLIC MISTAKES

ALONG THE WAY, BUT AS HE

TOLD SEAN BROWN, NO MATTER

WHAT, HE REMAINS FAITHFUL

TO HIS MISSION.

Reporter: OVER THE

PAST 12 SEASONS, FEW

PLAYERS HAVE BEEN MORE

DOMINANT MAN HOUSTON

ROCKET DWIGHT HOWARD.

THE EIGHT-TIME ALL-STAR

ENTERED THE LEAGUE THE

FIRST OVERALL PICK IN THE

NBA DRAFT FRESH OUT OF

HIGH SCHOOL.

> COMING INTO THE

LEAGUE, YOU HAD A MISSION.

WHAT WAS THE MISSION?

MY MISSION WAS TO

PREACH GOD'S WORD IN THE

NBA.

TO USE THE NBA AS A

PLATFORM FOR GOD.

Reporter: BUT FOR A

19-YEAR-OLD ENTERING THE

NBA, HE SAYS IT WAS A

DAILY STRUGGLE TO STAY

FOCUSED ON GOD.

IT WAS TIMES WHERE IT

WAS VERY OVERWHELMING.

IT WAS, LIKE, MAN THIS IS

SO MUCH.

EVERYTHING IS AT MY

DISPOSAL.

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS GO

REACH AND IT IS MINE.

Reporter: IN NINE

SEASON WITH THE MAGIC, HE

MADE SIX ALL-STAR GAME

APPEARANCES AND BECAME THE

FRANCHISE'S ALL-TIME

LEADING SCORER.

BUT WITH SUCCESS CAME

TEMPTATION.

IN 2007 HE BECAME A FATHER

AND WASN'T MARRIED, AND HE

TOOK A LOT OF HEAT BECAUSE

OF IT.

IF YOU'RE A

PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE AND

YOU TELL THE WORLD, I'M A

CHRISTIAN, FOR SOME PEOPLE

WHO DON'T QUITE UNDERSTAND

WHAT THAT MEANS, THEY

THINK YOU CAN'T MAKE

MISTAKES.

THAT'S RIGHT.

I CAME OUT AND I'M A MAN

OF FAITH AND I BELIEVE IN

GOD, AND I WILL ALWAYS

BELIEVE IN GOD.

AND THE MINUTE I MESSED

UP, THEY'RE, LIKE, YOU'RE

SUPPOSED TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

BUT JESUS CHRIST DIED ON

THE CROSS FOR OUR SINS.

IF HE IS WILLING TO

FORGIVE US, WHY CAN'T WE

FORGIVE EACH OTHER.

Reporter: AND RUMORS

BETWEEN HIM, HIS COACH,

AND TEAMMATES BEGAN TO

BREW.

PEOPLE MADE ME LOOK

LIKE THE WORST GUY AND THE

WORLD, A COACH KILLER AND

A GUY WHO HATES HIS

TEAMMATES, ALL OF THIS

STUFF I'M NOT.

Reporter: HE WAS

TRADED TO THE LAKERS, AND

IT WAS DIFFICULT FOR HIM

TO PLAY AT A HIGH LEVEL

BECAUSE HE STILL NEEDED

TIME TO HEAL FROM SURGERY.

I'M TRYING TO PLAY, AND

I'M STILL NOT AT 100%.

AND I WAS GETTING

DEMOLISHED FOR THAT.

HE'S NOT PLAYING HARD

ENOUGH.

AND I'M, LIKE, GOD, WHY DO

I HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL

OF THIS.

BUT HE SAID JUST STAY

STRONG.

Reporter: THEN DWIGHT

WAS A FREE AGENT AND HE

DECIDED TO LEAVE

LOS ANGELES AND SIGN WITH

THE ROCKETS, AND THAT

DIDN'T GO OVER WELL WITH

THE LAKERS' FANS.

AND THEN EVERYBODY

HATES ME AGAIN.

I'M, LIKE, MY GOD, PLEASE

DO SOMETHING.

HE SAID, LISTEN, MAN, IF

THE WHOLE WORLD HATES YOU,

I LOVE YOU.

ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT.

AND I JUST TRIED TO PUT

AWAY ALL OF THE HATE, AND

EVERYTHING LIKE THAT, AND

JUST FOCUS ON MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

Reporter: NOW DWIGHT

IS IN HIS THIRD SEASON

WITH HOUSTON.

MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT,

HE WANTS TO WIN.

HE IS JUST WORKING HARD TO

REMEMBER HIS TRUE CALLING.

OH, WOW!

[LAUGHTER]

I MEAN I JUST REMEMBER

THIS WHOLE THING LIKE IT

WAS YESTERDAY.

WOW!

Reporter: WHEN YOU

LOOK AT THAT GUY, HOW IS

THAT GUY IN THE NEWSPAPER

SHOT DIFFERENT FROM THE

GUY I'M SITTING ACROSS

FROM RIGHT NOW?

I WOULD SAY THIS GUY IN

THE NEWSPAPER IS FULL OF

LIFE.

NO CARE IN THE WORLD, NO

WORRIES.

IT'S A YOUNG KID WHO

DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT

THE WORLD.

AND THE GUY THAT'S IN

FRONT OF YOU IS THE GUY

WHO HAS BEEN HURT, BEEN

AROUND, BEEN THROUGH A LOT

OF DIFFERENT SITUATIONS.

IF I WAS TO GO BACK AND

TELL THE GUY IN HIS

PICTURE RIGHT HERE, I

WOULD SAY NEVER LET

NOTHING STEAL YOUR JOY.

BECAUSE YOU'RE GOING TO GO

THROUGH HELL.

Reporter: THAT'S A

LESSON DWIGHT HAD TO LEARN

THE HARD WAY.

TODAY HIS MISSION IS STILL

THE SAME.

WHEN I'M ON THE FLOOR,

LET PEOPLE SEE THE GUY IN

ME, WHETHER THAT BE HAVING

FUN, HAVING A SHOT OR

DUNKING, BUT JUST PLAYING

WITH JOY AND PEACE AND

LOVE.

Reporter: WHAT HAS

JESUS CHRIST MEANT TO YOU?

MAN, JUST LIKE MY ROCK,

MY FOUNDATION.

WHEN THINGS ARE GOING

WRONG, WHEN I'M AT A BAD

PLACE, I FEEL LIKE HE IS

THERE.

HE IS MY FOUNDATION.

HE HURTS WHEN I SIN, BUT

INSTEAD OF HIM TURNING HIS

BACK ON ME, HE'S, LIKE,

COME BACK.

I STILL LOVE YOU.

I'M NOT GOING TO LEAVE.

I'M HERE FOR YOU.

WE CONNECT FOREVER.

SO THAT'S WHAT HE IS.

Pat: WHAT AN AMAZING

ATHLETE.

ISN'T THAT REMARKABLE.

AND THE OTHER BIG STAR,

THE ONE PLAYING NOW FOR

THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS

IS -- HE WENT RIGHT OUT OF

HIGH SCHOOL.

THESE GUYS ARE BIG AND

STRONG AND TOUGH, BUT, OH,

BOY, HE HAS EXPERIENCED

SOME REALLY

CHARACTER-BUILDING

OBSTACLES.

Wendy: I LOVE HOW HE

IS USING THE NBA AS HIS

PLATFORM TO PREACH, HE

SAID.

VERY TALL, VERY HUMBLE,

BUT REMARKABLE GUY.

> WELL, VALENTINE'S DAY

IS JUST RIGHT AROUND THE

CORNER.

COMING UP LATER, WE SHOW

YOU HOW TWO PEOPLE, IN

JUST FIVE MINUTES A DAY,

CAN REKINDLE THEIR LOVE

AND RESTORE THEIR

RELATIONSHIP.

STAY TUNED.

Efrem: WELCOME BACK

TO WASHINGTON FOR THIS CBN

NEWSBREAK.

A PAKISTAN CHRISTIAN

SUFFERED TORTURE AND

THREATS OF JAIL FOR

REFUSING TO CONVERT TO

ISLAM.

HE WAS TARGETED BY HIS

CO-WORKERS BECAUSE HE IS

CHRISTIAN, ACCORDING TO A

VATICAN NEWS AGENCY.

WHEN HE REFUSED TO

DENOUNCE CHRIST, THEY

THREATENED TO CHARGE HIM

WITH BLASPHEMY, WHICH CAN

CARRY THE DEATH PENALTY IN

PAKISTAN.

THE CASE IS NOT UNUSUAL.

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS WANT TO

DRIVE CHRISTIANS OUT OF

PAKISTAN THROUGH VIOLENCE

AND EVEN MURDER, OFTEN

TARGETING CHRISTIANS.

HERE AT HOME, THE

SHERIFF OF YORK COUNTY IN

VIRGINIA IS ADDING "IN GOD

WE TRUST" TO HIS PATROL

CARS.

HERE IS A PHOTO OF THE

SHERIFF SHOWING THE NEW

DECAL.

HE SAYS HIS GOAL IS NOT TO

OFFEND ANYONE, AND SAYS

THAT POSTING THE MOTTO

DOES NOT INJURY OR

THREATEN ANYONE.

AND IT IS NOT AN ATTEMPT

TO URGE ANYONE TO SUPPORT

OR CONVERT TO ANY ONE

RELIGION.

AND NO COURT HAS EVER HELD

THAT THE PUBLIC POSTING OF

"IN GOD WE TRUST" VIOLATES

THE CONSTITUTION.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST NEWS BY GOING TO

OUR WEBSITE AT

cbnnews.com.

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Wendy: WHAT IF THE

COMMUNICATION, THE

RESPECT, AND THE ROMANCE

IN YOUR MARRIAGE COULD

IMPROVE DRAMATICALLY BY

INVESTING JUST FIVE

MINUTES OF YOUR DAY

TOGETHER?

YOU'RE ABOUT TO MEET A

COUPLE WHO HAVE PROOF THAT

IT CAN.

Reporter:

BEST-SELLING AUTHOR SQUIRE

AND HIS WIFE LOUISE HAVE

BEEN PRAYING TOGETHER

SINCE THE DAY THEY

MARRIED, MORE THAN 15

YEARS AGO.

IN THEIR BOOK "THE 40-DAY

PRAYER CHALLENGE," THEY

EXPLAIN HOW PARTNER PRAYER

CAN RESTORE RELATIONSHIPS,

AND THE PHENOMENAL THINGS

THAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN TWO

PEOPLE PRAY JUST FIVE

MINUTES A DAY.

Wendy: PLEASE WELCOME

TO "THE 700 CLUB," SQUIRE

AND LOUISE.

IT IS GOOD TO SEE YOU.

Wendy: OF COURSE WE

USED TO WORK TOGETHER HERE

AND WE GOT TO SEE YOU

EVERY DAY.

I KNOW.

Wendy: LET'S START

WERE YOU YOUR PERSONAL

STORY.

HOW DID YOU DISCOVER THE

POWER OF PARTNERED PRAYER?

WELL, WE STARTED

PRAYING TOGETHER, AND WE

WERE ABSOLUTELY ASTONISHED

THAT SO MANY PRAYERS CAME

ANSWERED.

AND IT WAS ALSO AN

EXPERIENCE WE HAD NEVER

HAD BEFORE.

WE HAD NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT

IT.

LIKE MOST PEOPLE, WE JUST

NEVER THOUGHT OF PRAYING

TOGETHER.

WELL, SQUIRE -- JUST A

LITTLE BACKGROUND, SQUIRE

WAS MARRIED TWICE BEFORE.

SO I'M MRS. RUSHNELL THE

THIRD, AND I WAS MARRIED

FOR 20 YEARS BEFORE.

SO WHEN WE STARTED

PRAYING, WE REALLY SAW GOD

NOT ONLY ENTER INTO OUR

MARRIAGE, BUT WE HAD A

PEACE THAT REALLY

SURPASSED ALL

UNDERSTANDING.

NO MATTER WHAT WE WERE

GOING THROUGH, IF THERE

WAS A CRISIS WITH OUR LIFE

OR SOMETHING WITH THE KIDS

OR FINANCIALLY, WE SAW

THERE WAS A SOLUTION TO

EVERYTHING.

SO WE WENT OUT AND STARTED

TALKING TO EVERYONE ABOUT

IT, ISN'T IT GREAT WHEN A

COUPLE PRAYS.

AND WE STARTED REALIZING

MOST COUPLES REALLY DON'T

PRAY TOGETHER

CONSISTENTLY.

THEY PRAY AT MEALS OR

THEY'LL PRAY DURING A

CRISIS, BUT THEY WEREN'T

PRAYING TOGETHER

CONSISTENTLY.

AND SO WE THOUGHT, GOSH,

WE'VE GOT TO GET PEOPLE

DOING THIS.

Wendy: I LOVE THAT

YOU TALK ABOUT THE THREE

KEYS -- EXPLAIN THE

IMPORTANCE OF SPEAKING,

BELIEVING, AND THEN

EXPECTING THE ANSWER.

WELL, YOU KNOW, GOD

CREATED EARTH AND THE

WORLD BY SPEAKING IT.

HE DIDN'T THINK IT.

HE SPOKE IT.

AND WHEN JESUS SPOKE ABOUT

MIRACLES, HE SPOKE THEM.

SO SPEAKING YOUR PRAYER IS

TREMENDOUSLY IMPORTANT.

ASK AND BELIEVE, AND YOU

WILL RECEIVE IS WHAT WE

ARE TOLD IN THE BIBLE.

AND SO SPEAKING AND

BELIEVING AND EXPECTING

THAT YOUR PRAYER WILL BE

ANSWERED IS TREMENDOUSLY

IMPORTANT.

BUT WE TAKE IT THAT EXTRA

STEP.

AND THAT WAS -- AND THE

SOUNDS LIKE A BRAND NEW

IDEA, THIS IDEA OF PARTNER

PRAYER -- WHEREVER WE GO,

THEY SAY THAT'S A GREAT

NEW IDEA.

IT'S NOT A NEW IDEA.

JESUS SAID, IF TWO OF YOU

WILL AGREE IN PRAYER, IT

WILL BE DONE BY MY FATHER.

SO PARTNER UP.

THIS WHOLE MOVEMENT WE'RE

TRYING TO START IN THE "

"40-DAY CHALLENGE" IS NOT

JUST ABOUT COUPLES.

IT IS THE FIRST RESEARCH

THAT HAS EVER BEEN DONE ON

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TWO

PEOPLE PRAY TOGETHER

CONSISTENTLY.

CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT, IT

HAS NEVER BEEN DONE?

Wendy: YOU HAVE

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH TO

PROVE THAT PARTNER PRAYER

WORKS?

YES.

Wendy: HOW SO?

WHEN WE WENT TO BAIL BAIL BAYLOR,

THEY SAID THEY HAD NEVER

DONE ANY RESEARCH.

BUT THEY PULLED OUT DATA

THAT GALLOP HAD DONE.

WHEN GALLOP ASKED THE

QUESTION OF COUPLES WHO

PRAYED TOGETHER SOMETIMES

VERSES A LOT, THAT THINGS

HAPPENED DIFFERENTLY.

THAT ROMANCE,

CONVERSATION, AND RESPECT

WENT UP 20% TO 30% WHEN

YOU PRAYED A LOT VERSUS

SOMETIMES.

Wendy: AND ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT WENT UP

EXPEDENTIALLY WAS JOY AND

HAPPINESS.

YES.

JOY AND RESPECT.

AND THE FEAR OF DIVORCE

DROPPED TO ZERO.

AND THAT WASN'T EVEN A

WIDE REPORT.

WHAT BAYLOR IS ABOUT TO DO

NOW, AND WHAT WE WANT

PEOPLE TO DO -- BECAUSE

THIS IS GOING TO BE

HISTORIC AND

GROUNDBREAKING.

YOU GO ON 40 DAY

PRAYER.COM.

YOU TAKE THE SURVEY, AND

IT IS AN EASY, FUN SURVEY.

YOU TAKE IT ON THE FIRST

DAY AND THE 40th DAY.

ON THE 40th DAY YOU GET

A BAR GRAFT TO SE GRAPH TO SEE HOW

WELL YOU DID.

THERE IS MARRIED,

UNMARRIED, TWO FAMILY

MEMBERS, AND TWO FRIENDS.

THIS WILL BLOW EVERYONE'S

MINDS BECAUSE WHEN YOU

HAVE DATA THAT TELLS YOU,

IT IS RIGHT HERE IN BLACK

AND WHITE.

Wendy: WHY FIVE

MINUTES A DAY AND WHY A

40-DAY CHALLENGE.

FIVE MINUTES A DAY --

WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE THIS

SO EASY.

IT TAKES FIVE MINUTES TO

BRUSH YOUR TEETH AND COMB

YOUR HAIR.

CAN YOU TAKE FIVE MINUTES

TO BE WITH THE CREATOR OF

HEAVEN AND EARTH.

IT IS A LITTLE OF A CON

JOB BECAUSE WE KNOW ONCE

THEY SEE THE JOY IN

PRAYING, IT WILL INCREASE.

BUT START WITH FIVE

MINUTES.

WHAT GOD CAN DO WITH FIVE

MINUTES OF COMMUNICATING

WITH HIM, IT IS LIKE

PLUGGING INTO THE MOST

POWERFUL SOURCE IN THE

UNIVERSE.

WENDY, THIS IS A GIFT LEFT

ON YOUR DOORSTEP, AND

PEOPLE AREN'T OPENING IT

UP.

IT IS GOING TO BE

TREMENDOUS.

Wendy: IN YOUR BOOK,

YOU HAVE MANY EXAMPLES OF

ANSWERED PRAYERS.

DO YOU WANT TO GIVE US A

FEW.

LET'S TALK ABOUT FIVE

MINUTES.

PEOPLE ARE SO BUSY --

THAT'S THE BIGGEST ENEMY

AGAINST PEOPLE PRAYING

TOGETHER, THEY DON'T HAVE

TIME.

FIVE MINUTES -- THAT'S

REALLY IMPORTANT.

WE FIND THAT SOMETIMES

PASTORS ARE EVEN SO BUSY

THEY DON'T PRAY WITH THEIR

SPOUSES.

THEY SAY GRACE, THEY PRAY

IN CRISIS -- BUT ACTUALLY

PRAYING WITH THEIR

SPOUSES -- A LOT THINK

LIKE WE DID, I JUST DIDN'T

THINK ABOUT THAT.

TIM KELLER, OF THE

REDEEMER CHURCH IN NEW

YORK -- HIS WIFE CATHY WAS

SUFFERING WITH CROHN'S

DISEASE, AND IT WAS RIGHT

AFTER 9/11.

AND THERE WAS A DEPRESSION

AND CATHY SAID, I NEED TO

HAVE YOU DO SOMETHING WITH

ME, TIM.

I NEED TO HAVE YOU PRAY

WITH ME EVERY NIGHT.

AND HE SAID, EVERY NIGHT?

AND HE SAID, EVERY NIGHT.

AND THEN WITH THE WISDOM

OF A WOMAN, SHE SAID,

IMAGINE A DOCTOR TOLD YOU

THAT YOU WERE GOING TO

DIE, BUT IF YOU TOOK THIS

PILL EVERY DAY, YOU COULD

LIVE, WOULD YOU SOMETIMES

SAY, WELL, I THINK I'LL

FORGET ABOUT THAT.

OR SOME DAY YOU'LL FORGET

ABOUT IT AND NOT DO IT OR

AVOID IT, AND YO IT -- NO, YOU WOULD

DO IT EVERY DAY.

AND TIM KELLER SAID HE

REALIZED HE NEEDED TO

NEGOTIATE PRAYER TO EVERY

DAY.

AND NOW HE CAN'T REMEMBER

A SINGLE DAY SINCE THAT

TIME HE AND CATHY DID NOT

PRAY TOGETHER.

ON 40-DAY.COM, WE TELL

YOU HOW TO OPEN YOUR GIFT.

Wendy: AND JESUS

SAID, WHATEVER YOU ASK

FOR, BELIEVING, IT SHALL

BE DONE.

AND IF THERE IS EVER

ANY TIME TO PRAY FOR A

COUNTRY, IT'S NOW.

IF MY PEOPLE WILL HUMBLE

THEMSELVES AND PRAYER.

PRAYER IS MENTIONED OVER

500 TIMES IN THE BIBLE.

PRAY.

WE HAVE TO PRAY.

Wendy: WE'VE GOT TO

PRAY JUST TO MAKE IT

TODAY.

Wendy: I AM SAVORING

THIS.

TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF

LENT.

IT IS A GOOD TIME TO

START.

THOUSANDS OF CHURCHES ARE

COMING ON BOARD.

LAKEWOOD AND GATEWAY.

IT IS AMAZING TO US.

THIS IS A MOVEMENT THAT IS

STARTING.

YOU GO TO 40daypray.com.

AND THERE IS NO COSTS.

ALL OF THE RESEARCH IS

BEING PAID FOR, WE'V FOR -- WE'VE

GOT SOME ANGELS OUT THERE.

Wendy: CAN YOU GUYS

PRAY THAT I HAVE A DATE BY

VALENTINE'S DAY.

MAYBE NOT A FULL-FLEDGED

BOYFRIEND, BUT MAYBE A

DINNER DATE.

IN JESUS' NAME.

IN JESUS' NAME.

Wendy: IT'S GREAT

SEEING YOU GUYS.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ON

THE 40-DAY CHALLENGE, LOG

ON TO cbn.com.

AND PICK UP THE BOOK

CALLED "THE 40-DAY

CHALLENGE," AND IT HAS AN

EIGHT-WEEK STUDY GUIDE FOR

UNLOCKING THE POWER OF

GOD.

YOU HAVE RISEN OUR

EXPECTATION LEVELS, AND WE

ARE READY.

IT WILL AMAZE YOU.

Wendy: GOD BLESS YOU

GUYS.

COMING UP NEXT, WE'VE GOT

YOUR E-MAIL.

VIVIENNE ASKS: "WHAT WOULD

HAPPEN IF CHRISTIANS IN

VARIOUS PARTS OF THE WORLD

WOULD PRAYER TO DENOUNCE

EVIL, DEMONIC FORCES?"

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

IT IS TIME FOR YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS, AND WE'VE GOT

PAT HERE.

AND HE IS READY.

VIVIENNE SAYS: "WHAT

WOULD HAPPEN IF CHRISTIANS

IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THE

WORLD WOULD PRAY IN JESUS'

NAME TO BIND EVIL, DEMONIC

FORCES.

WOULD IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THE WORLD?"

Pat: OF COURSE IT

WOULD.

GOD ANSWERS PRAYER.

AND YOU HEARD SQUIRE A FEW

MINUTES AGO.

YOU BIND SATAN WITH

SPEAKING THE WORD.

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I

BIND YOUR POWER.

IF CHRISTIANS COLLECTIVELY

WERE PRAYING, THEY COULD

PRAY IN PARTICULAR AREAS.

THEY COULD BIND SATANIC

POWER OVER CITIES, OVER

STATES.

WE DO THAT BEFORE WE GO ON

A TELETHON.

WE BIND THE FORCES OF

EVIL, SATAN.

AND I THINK COLLECTIVE

PRAYER IS VERY IMPORTANT.

WHAT WOULD IT DO?

IT WOULD BE AMAZING.

Wendy: DAVID SAYS,

"ARE THERE PROPHETS IN OUR

WORLD TODAY FROM A

BIBLICAL STANDPOINT?

IF SO, WHAT IS THE TRUE

TEST OF A MODERN-DAY

PROPHET AND WHAT ARE THE

CHARACTERISTICS?"

Pat: OF COURSE.

THE BIBLE SAYS THERE ARE

APOSTLES, PROPHETS, AND

TEACHERS AND SO FORTH.

THESE ARE MINISTRY GIFTS

IN THE CHURCH.

I THINK THE PROPHETIC GIFT

WAS NOT SO MUCH

FORETELLING THE FUTURE AS

FORTH TELLING THE SIN AND

SPEAKING DIRECTLY TO THE

SINS IN PEOPLE'S LIVES.

WHAT IS THE TEST?

DO THEY SPEAK THE WORD OF

GOD OR NOT?

Wendy: DAN SAYS,

"DOES A PERSON STILL HAVE

A SINFUL NATURE AFTER HE

BECOMES A CHRISTIAN?

AND WHEN WE SAY 'SINFUL

NATURE', WHAT IS ACTUALLY

MEANT BY THIS PHRASE?"

Pat: WE TRANSLATE

FLESH, S-A-R-X, SARSK SARX, AND

IT SPEAKS TO THE NATURE OF

MANKIND, WHERE THERE IS A

SINFUL TENDENCY IN US ALL.

WE ALL GO ASTRAY.

DOES THAT DIE?

PAUL SAID, I'M CRUCIFIED

WITH CHRIST, NEVERTHELESS,

I LIVE.

THE OLD MAN, THE FLESHLY

PERSON, HAS TO DIE.

AND DOES IT ACTUALLY DIE?

THE ANSWER IS NO.

IT'S JUST DORMANT.

AND IT WANTS TO COME OUT

AND BE THERE, YOU KNOW.

AND PAUL MOANS, OH, SINFUL

MAN, WHO WOULD DELIVER ME

FROM THIS BODY OF DEATH.

IT IS THERE IN ALL OF US,

A TENDENCY TO SIN.

Wendy: A CONSTANT

BATTLE UNTIL WE GO TO BE

WITH JESUS.

> MISS LISA SAYS, "WILL

I SEE MY PARENTS AGAIN IN

HEAVEN?

MY MOM DIED IN 2013, AND

MY DAD DIED IN 2003.

MY PARENTS RAISED MY

SISTERS AND ME, BUT AFTER

THEY DIED, WE WERE

SEPARATED.

HEAVEN IS ETERNITY WITH

JESUS.

AM I RIGHT?"

Pat: I CAN'T

GUARANTEE THAT YOUR

PARENTS ARE IN HEAVEN,

WHETHER THEY ACCEPTED

JESUS AND THEIR SINS WERE

FORGIVEN.

ASSUMING THEY ACCEPTED THE

LORD, YES, THERE WILL BE

JOYOUS REUNIONS IN HEAVEN

WITH LOVED ONES.

REMEMBER THE STORY OF THE

RICH MAN AND LAZARUS.

AND LAZARUS WAS TAKEN BY

THE ANGELS TO ABRAHAM'S

BOSOM, AND THE RICH MAN

WOUND UP IN HELL.

AND HE COULD SEE ABRAHAM

AND HE COULD SEE LAZARUS,

AND HE RECOGNIZED THEM.

SO THERE IS CONSCIOUSNESS

AFTER DEATH.

Wendy: VICKI SAYS, "I

WAS WONDERING WHEN YOU

READ THE BIBLE, SHOULD YOU

READ IT FROM COVER TO

COVER OR SKIP AROUND?"

Pat: WELL, I'M A

SKIPPER-AROUNDER.

I WANT TO GET GOD'S WORD

FOR THAT PARTICULAR TIME.

ALTHOUGH SYSTEMATIC

READING IS VERY GOOD.

BUT I THINK IT GETS TO BE

MORE OF A LESSON PLAN THAN

IT DOES INSPIRATION.

SO YOU CAN DO DOTH.

Wendy: I GET IN

LEVITICUS, AND I THINK I

WANT TO SKIP AROUND.

Pat: I APPRECIATE YOU

BEING WITH US TODAY.

AND WE LEAVE YOU WITH

TODAY'S POWER MINUTE FROM

2 CORINTHIANS: "FOR ALL OF

THE PROMISES OF GOD, IN

HIM ARE YES ARE IN HIM

AMEN, TO THE GLORY OF GOD

THROUGH US."

THAT'S ALL OF THE TIME

WE'VE GOT.

FROM WENDY AND ALL OF US,

THIS IS PAT ROBERTSON.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

BYE-BYE.
