SPECIAL

FAVORS. WE'LL BREAKDOWN THE

NEW

REPORT THAT SHOWS HILLARY

CLINTON

MAY HAVE GIVEN PREFERENTIAL

TREATMENT TO DONORS.

AND THEY RISK THEIR

LIVES TO SAVE

OTHERS AND TOOK OUT A

PARISH IN THE

PROCESS.

> THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN

NEWSWATCH.

I'M CAITLIN BURKE. NEWS FOR

DONALD

TRUMP.

ANNOUNCING A MAJOR SPEECH

IN ARIZONA.

AND HILLARY CLINTON HAS NEW

QUESTIONS TO ANSWERS ABOUT

SPECIAL

TREATMENT FOR TOP

INFORMATION DONORS.

MEANWHILE BOTH CANDIDATES

CANNOT

SHOW THE DIFFERENCE IN THE

ECONOMY.

WE HAVE THE LATEST FOR THE

RACE OF

THE WHITE HOUSE.

IT MAYBE A SIGNIFICANT

ISSUE, BUT

THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN IS

HAVING TROUBLE

IN A WAY TO DEFEND THE

IMMIGRATION.

ON SUNDAY TALK SHOWS, THOSE

CLOSEST

TO HIM ON THE CAMPAIGN

DEFENDED HIS

POSITION SAYING HE'S BEEN

CONSISTENT.

NO AMNESTY, NO

CITIZENSHIP.

WE ARE GOING TO SECURE

THE BORDER.

NO PATH TO LEGALIZATION OR

CITIZENSHIP UNLESS PEOPLE

LEAVE THE

COUNTRY.

IN ORDER TO STAND ON HIS

STANCE,

TRUMP WAS ON HIS CAMPAIGN

THIS

WEEKEND AND TALKED ABOUT

THE WOMAN

WHO DISAPPEARED AND THE

BOND.

HILLARY CLINTON SPENT

THE WEEKEND

IN THE HAMPTONS IN NEW YORK

WE MAILS

TO DEFEND.

E-MAILS WERE RELEASED AFTER

A

LAWSUIT AFTER CONSERVATIVE

GROUPS

UNITED WHO SHARED THEM WITH

NBC NEWS.

THEY SHOWED THAT IT WAS

MORE EVIDENT

THAT SPECIAL TREATMENT WHEN

CLINTON

WAS SECRETARY OF STATE.

ONE ISSUE MAY LOOM THE

LARGEST FOR

BOTH CANDIDATES.

AMERICANS POCKET BOOKS. THE

LATEST

GOVERNMENT REPORT REVISED

ECONOMIC

GROWTH DOWNWARD SLIGHTLY

AND NOW

UNDER 1% FOR THE YEAR.

ECONOMIST BELIEVE IT WAS

PICKED UP

IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS BUT

BELIEVE

IT'S THE WEAKEST RECOVERY

SINCE

WORLD WAR II.

THAT THE ECONOMY HAS NOT

RECEIVED

STRONG ECONOMIC GROWTH

SINCE THE

RECESSION ENDED.

> RESCUERS ARE SEARCHING

FOR MORE

VICTIMS OF LAST WEEKEND'S

DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE.

AT LEAST 290 PEOPLE ARE

DEAD AFTER

MORE BODIES WERE FOUND.

THE TOWN HAS BEEN REDUCED

TO RUBBLE.

THEY HELD A MASS FOR

SURVIVORS UNDER

A LARGE TENT UNDER A

MAKESHIFT CRAFT

BY FIREFIGHTERS.

> OPERATION RESCUE IS

HELPING

LOUISIANA RESIDENTS AFTER

THE

DEVASTATING FLOODS. OVER

10,000

MEALS HAVE BEEN SERVED.

THE FLOOD DESTROYED HER

HOME AND HER

CONDITION OF PANCREATIC

CANCER MADE

IT DIFFICULT.

SHE GIVES THANKS TO GOD.

IT'S ONLY MATERIAL

THINGS.

"OPERATION BLESSING"

TEAMS HAVE

COME IN FROM ALL OVER THE

U.S. TO

SHOW GOD'S LOVE IN THE

DEVASTATION.

THEY HAVE PRAYED WITH

PEOPLE AND

SEEN HEALING AND SALVATION.

ALBEIT STILL ACCEPTING

VOLUNTEERS TO

HELP RECOVER FROM THIS HUGE

NATURAL

DISASTER.

A SUICIDE BOMB FAILED AN

ATTACK

ON THURSDAY HOPING TO

DETONATE THE

BOMB IN HIS BACKPACK. THE

BOMB NEVER

WENT OFF.

THE ASSAILANT CONTINUED TO

CHASE

DOWN THE PRIEST UNTIL THEY

STOPPED

HIM.

FOR THE PAST SEVERAL

MONTHS,

ISRAELI HAS SUFFERED A WAVE

OF

ATTACKS.

ONE OF THE WAYS TO HELP IS

THE

EMERGENCY RESPONSE. WE SHOW

FROM

JERUSALEM HOW ONE

ORGANIZATION IS

HELPING RESPONDERS WITH THE

TOOLS

THEY NEED TO SAVE LIVES.

GETTING TO THE SCENE OF

A TERROR

ATTACK QUICKLY IS CRITICAL

TO SAVE

LIVES. THAT'S WHY JESUS

MINISTRIES

DONATED THREE NEW

AMBULANCES TO

ISRAEL'S FIRST RESPONDERS.

THIS IS A PRACTICAL WAY

OF

SHOWING SUPPORT.

THAT I BELIEVE IS.

IN THE WAY THAT I DID, ONE

WAY WE

CAN HAVE THIS IS BY THE

NEED FOR

BLOOD DONATIONS AND MEDICAL

SUPPLIES.

THE AMBULANCES WILL MAKE

A

DIFFERENCE BEYOND FIGHTING

TERRORISM.

EACH ONE OF THESE

VEHICLES IS

PROVIDING SERVICES TO

HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE EVERY

YEAR. BY

THAT, WE CAN DELIVER BABIES

ON ROUTE

TO THE HOSPITALS.

WE CAN RESUSCITATE PEOPLE.

WE CAN SUPPORT PEOPLE WITH

DISABILITIES, AND THEN

EVACUATE THEM

ON THE VERY MEDICAL

CONDITIONS TO

THE HOSPITALS.

THEY DEMONSTRATE THE

GROWING

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE

CHRISTIANS

AND THE JEWS.

THE AMBULANCES ARE THE

PART OF

SHOWING THE PEOPLE THROUGH

CHRISTIAN

SUPPORT FOR LOVE OF ISRAEL.

THIS SHOWS TO THE ISRAELI

PEOPLE WHO

FEEL OFTEN ALONE THAT THEY

ARE NOT

ALONE AND THIS ALLOWS THEM

TO

SUPPORT US.

WE ARE UNITED.

PEOPLE ARE VILIFIED.

WE ARE OSTRACIZED WITH SO

MANY

CORNERS OF THE EARTH.

CH AT THE SAME TIME, ONCE

YOU LEAVE

THE MANIFOLD OF THE SECRET

CHAMBERS,

THERE ARE MILLIONS AND

MILLIONS OF

SUPPORTED AND LOVE FOR

JEWISH

PEOPLE. OUR JOB IS TO OPEN

THOSE

DOORS, TO PRY THEM OPEN AND

KEEP

THEM OPEN AND ENSURE THE

CHRISTIAN

RELATIONSHIP CONTINUES A

BEAUTIFUL

FLOWER THAT BLOSSOMS AND

BLOOMS FOR

THE WORLD TO SEE.

ONE WANTED TO PASS ALONG

THE

MESSAGE TO THE CHRISTIANS.

HE SAYS, TELL THEM THAT

EACH TIME

I GO OUT ON A CALL, I FEEL

THAT ALL

OF THEM ARE WITH ME AND I

HAVE THE

ENERGY TO SAVE A PERSONAL

LIFE AND

PROVIDE HEALTH AND SAFETY

TO THE

PEOPLE WHO SERVE.

IN THE END TIMES, THIS IS

GOING TO

BE LEFT ALL ALONE.

THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT ARE

GOING TO

SPEND WITH THEM AS IN THE

PAST ARE

THE CHRISTIANS.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

> THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND

IS

LOOKING A THE A POSSIBLE

SPLIT OVER

ISSUES LIKE HOMOSEXUALITY.

THEY ARE PLANNING TO GATHER

TO

DEVELOP AN ALTERNATIVE

CHURCH THIS

WEEK. ORGANIZERS SAY THEY

HAVE NO

IMMEDIATE PLANS TO BREAK

AWAY BUT

PREPARING TO DO SO IF THE

CHURCH

CONTINUES TO GO DOWN A

LIBERAL PATH.

THE REVEREND HOSTING THE

MEETING

SAYS MY OVERRIDING CONCERN

IS TO

EFFECTIVELY DISCHARGE BUT

IT IS NOT

POSSIBLE FOR CHURCHES

POSTING IN

AMBIGUITY FOR REALITY.

COMING UP.

THE BIG ISSUES LIKE GAY

MARRIAGE.

SOMETHING'S HAPPENING IN

AMERICA.

THE NATION WAS FOUNDED BY

EUROPEAN

CHRISTIANS, BUT ACCORDING

TO NEW

NUMBERS, THAT POPULATION IS

A

MINORITY.

IN THE TIMES SINCE

PRESIDENT

BARACK OBAMA WAS ELECTED,

THE NATION

HAS EXPERIENCED A DRAMATIC

SHIFT.

GONE FROM THE LAST YEAR

FROM

BEING A MAJORITY WHITE

CHRISTIANS

COUNTRY TO A MINORITY WHITE

CHRISTIAN. IF YOU TAKE ALL

CHRISTIANS, ORTHODOX,

EVERYONE WHO

IDENTIFIES AS A WHITE

NON-HISPANIC

CHRISTIANS.

WHITE CHRISTIANS MADE UP

54% OF

THE POPULATION, NOW IT'S

45%. WHITE

COUPLES ARE NOT KEEPING UP

WITH

BIRTH RATES AS WITH

IMMIGRATION

RATES.

AND LEAVING THE CHURCH.

THE BOOK, "THE END OF WHITE

CHRISTIAN AMERICAN".

BECAUSE OF THAT WHITE

CHRISTIANS

HAVE IN AMERICA.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR

THE

COUNTRY.

FOR YEARS, WHITE

CHRISTIANS HAVE

BEEN ON THE DECLINE AND

IMPACTING

SCHOOLS. CHRISTIANS ARE

FACING

UNPRECEDENTED LEVEL OF

PERSECUTION

AND GAY MARRIAGE.

I THINK CONSERVATIVES

WERE PRETTY

MUCH ALL IN OPPOSING FROM

VERY EARLY

ON FROM THE 70s ALL THE WAY

THROUGH

AND THIS ISSUE AS YOU SAID

THAT HAS

KIND OF BEEN LOST IN THE

COURT, THE

COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION.

8 YEARS AGO, 70%

SUPPORTED SAME

SEX MARRIAGE.

TODAY, 53% SUPPORT IT.

THERE IS SOMETHING

DIFFERENT FELT

ACROSS AMERICA AND

MATERIALIZED BOTH

ALONG RACIAL AND POLITICAL

DIVIDE.

HIS BOOK ISN'T ABOUT THE

PRESIDENTIAL RACE, BUT HIS

FINDINGS

HELP EXPLAIN WHAT'S FUELING

THE

TRUMP TRAIN.

I THINK THE ANGER WE ARE

SEEING

IS REALLY ROOTED MORE IN

THE SENSE

OF ANXIETY ABOUT CULTURAL

CHANGE AND

THE SENSE REALLY OF

NOSTALGIA WHEN

WHITE PRIDE WAS MORE

CENTRAL TOWARDS

THE CULTURE AND THE POWER.

WHITE EVANGELICALS

BELIEVE

CHRISTIANS ARE BECOMING THE

MINORITY

AND DISCRIMINATION AGAINST

OTHER

GROUPS.

WE ARE SEEING RACIAL

UNREST, NOT

THAT THE DIVISIONS HAVEN'T

BEEN

THERE BUT EXPOSED IN WAYS

THAT I

HAVEN'T SEEN IN MY

LIFETIME.

A CHALLENGE FOR WHITE

PERSONS IS

MAKING CONNECTIONS WITH

THEIR BLACK

BROTHERS ON THESE INSTANCES.

RECENT KILLINGS OF BLACK

MEN THAT

ARE PART OF A PATTERN OF

THE WAY

POLICE TREAT AFRICAN

AMERICANS. A

SMALL NUMBER OF WHITE

AMERICANS

AGREE.

AND MOST ARE SEGREGATED.

AT 11:00 A.M. ON SUNDAY

MORNING

IS THE MOST SEGREGATED HOUR.

90% OF CHURCHES ARE

MONORAIL

CHURCHES. THERE IS NOT THAT

MUCH

CONNECTIVE TISSUE BETWEEN

WORLD'S OF

CHRISTIANITY.

A SHIFT THAT HELPS

EXPLAIN SOME

OF THE ANGST THAT'S BEHIND

THE

HEADLINES.

UP NEXT, A TERRORIST, A

TRAIN AND

THREE AMERICAN HEROES. YOU

WILL HEAR

FROM THOSE COURAGEOUS MEN

RIGHT HERE

WHEN WE COME BACK.

LAST SUMMER THREE

AMERICAN

FRIENDS TRAVELED THROUGH

EUROPE AND

THEN BECAME KNOWN AS

HEROES.

ANTHONY SADDLER AND TWO

OTHERS

WERE TRAVELING IN 2015. A

TERRORIST

WAS ALSO ON BOARD. WHEN HE

BEGAN TO

CARRY OUT HIS ATTACK, HE

RAN

STRAIGHT INTO THE THREE

AMERICANS

WHO JUMPED INTO ACTION

RISKING THEIR

LIVES TO DISARM HIM AND

SAVING

HUNDREDS OF LIVES IN THE

PROCESS.

THEY TELL THEIR STORY IN A

NEW BOOK

"THE 1517 TO PARIS".

THE TRUE STORY OF A

TERRORIST, A

TRAIN AND THREE AMERICAN

HEROES.

TWO OF THOSE AMERICAN

HEROES,

ANTHONY SADDLER AND SPENCER

JONES

JOINED US HERE IN OUR

STUDIOS.

WE SPOKE WITH THEM ABOUT

THAT

REMARKABLE DAY.

TELL US WHAT HAPPENED

EXACTLY ON

THE TRAIN AND WHAT DID

ALERT YOU

THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG?

ANTHONY AND I WERE

ACTUALLY

ASLEEP AT THE TIME AND A

TRAIN RAN

THROUGH THE AISLE IN

BETWEEN US. I

LOOKED AT ALEX, HE WAS

TURNED AROUND

AT THE SEAT AND LOOKED LIKE

HE HAD

SEEN A GHOST AND GLASS WAS

BREAKING

AND I SEE HIM WITH A

BACKPACK

STRAPPED TO HIM.

ANTHONY, WHAT WAS GOING

ON WITH

YOU?

AS HE SAID, A TRAIN

EMPLOYEE CAME

BY US RUNNING AND I LOOKED

TO SEE

WHAT HE WAS RUNNING AWAY

FROM AND I

SEE HIM WITH A BACKPACK

STRAPPED TO

HIM.

YOU KNEW SOMETHING WAS

WRONG WHEN

YOU SAW THE GUN, OBVIOUSLY.

WHAT WAS YOUR INITIAL

REACTION?

I THINK EVERYONE WAS IN

SHOCK AND

LOOKED TO SEE IF ANYBODY

WAS GOING

TO DO ANYTHING AND NO ONE

WAS. I HAD

NO HOPE THAT WE WERE JUST

GOING TO

DIE THERE. I WENT UP TO

COVER BUT

LUCKILY HE ACTUALLY POINTED

AT ME

THE TRIGGER AND IT WAS A

BAD PRIMER

IN THE BULLET.

IT'S ANOTHER HAND OF THE

WORK OF GOD

IN THAT MOMENT THAT KEPT US

ALIVE.

ANTHONY, YOU WERE RIGHT

BEHIND

SPENCER AT THE TIME?

YEAH.

I WAS ASKING MYSELF IF THIS

IS

REALLY HAPPENING AND WITH

SPENCER

HAD GONE UP OUT OF HIS SEAT

AND IT

WAS MORE IN INSTINCTUAL FOR

JUST TO

FOLLOW OUR FRIENDS.

WHEN YOU TACKLED HIM,

WHAT

HAPPENED THERE?

I STARTED TO TACKLE HIM

AND HE

BLINDED ME IN ONE EYE AND I

WAS ABLE

TO SCUFFEL WITH HIM.

I DO JUI JITSU.

HE ALMOST SLIT MY THROAT

AND SEVERED

MY TENDON AND NERVE BUT WE

WERE ABLE

TO CHOKE HIM UNCONSCIOUS.

THERE WAS SOMEONE ABLE

TO

CONFRONT THE TERRORIST

BEFORE THAT?

YES, WE DIDN'T GET THAT

INFORMATION.

HE WAS LOADING THE GUN IN

THE

BATHROOM AND THERE WAS AN

ALTERCATION THERE.

SOMEONE HAD GOTTEN SHOT AT

THAT

POINT.

WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT BECAUSE

WE WERE

IN A DIFFERENT CAR.

I THINK THAT COMMOTION IS

WHAT

CAUSED THE TRAIN EMPLOYEE

TO RUN BY

US.

THIS COULD HAPPEN ON THE

WAY TO

PARIS OR NICE.

FOR INSTANCE SOMEONE WHO

KILLED

DOZENS, I THINK OVER 80

PEOPLE.

DO YOU THINK THIS IS A

LESSON FOR

TODAY TO RESPOND FOR THINGS

THAT

HAPPENED IN ORLANDO.

I THINK OUR STORY

PROVIDES A

DIFFERENT LIGHT TO THAT AND

NOBODY

EVEN LOST LIFE IN OUR

SITUATION

INCLUDING GUNMAN.

I THINK IT'S A BLESSING. WE

HOPE THE

READERS AND EVERYBODY IN

THE WORLD,

IT CHANGES THE NARRATIVE

THAT MAYBE

THESE THINGS CAN BE AVERTED

IN THE

FUTURE.

WHAT CHANGED?

EVERYTHING.

THERE WAS JUST A LIST OF

MIRACLES

HAPPENING AND EVEN EVERYONE

ON THE

TRAIN.

WE HAD THE PERFECT PEOPLE

IN PLACE.

ME AND ANTHONY AND ALEX IT

WAS A

DESTINY TO BE ON THAT TRAIN

AND

EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES LED

TO THAT

MOMENT.

WE USED EVERY SINGLE SKILL

WE PICKED

UP ALONG THE WAY IN A

MATTER OF

MINUTES.

YOU WROTE THE BOOK.

IN THE BOOK, DO YOU THINK

THIS IS

ANOTHER WAY FOR PEOPLE TO

LEARN A

LESSON THEY NEED TO KNOW

RIGHT NOW?

I THINK IT'S A GOOD

REFLECTION

AND GOOD TOOL THAT IS OUT

THERE THAT

PEOPLE CAN USE AND WE HOPE

TO

PROVIDE HOPE IN TODAY'S

WORLD OF

TERROR AND HOPE IT CHANGES

THE

NARRATIVE A LITTLE BIT.

TELL US ABOUT THE

TERRORIST WHO

WAS SEVERELY WOUNDED AND

YOU WERE

ABLE TO HELP SAVE HIS LIFE?

HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK

AND ENDED

COMING OUT OF HIS NECK AND

HIS

CAROTID ARTERY.

I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO

DIE EVEN

THOUGH I MANAGED TO STOP

THE

BLEEDING. I TOLD HIM, HEY,

DO YOU

WANT TO SAY A PRAYER WITH

ME.

AND HE WENT, I'M OKAY. IT

TOOK ME

BACK.

I SAID WOW, ON THE VERGE OF

DEATH

AND DIDN'T WANT TO PRAY.

I PRAYED FOR HIM ANYWAY. I

HAD MY

FINGERS ON HIS NECK AND

THEN MINUTES

LATER WE WERE AT THE TRAIN

STATION.

AND THEN MONTHS LATER, I

WAS STABBED.

I'M GOOD NOW.

100% RECOVERY.

MARK TEXTED ME AND SAID ON

THE TRAIN

YOU ASKED IF I WANTED A

PRAYER, I DO

NOW.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH

US. THANKS

FOR WHAT YOU DID.

ORDINARY HEROES. AS YOU

SAY, IT'S A

GREAT WAY TO CHANGE THE

NARRATIVE OF

ALL THE THINGS HAPPENING IN

THE

WORLD TODAY.

WELL, THESE BRAVE YOUNG

MEN

HEROIC ACTIONS ARE ADOPTED

IN THE

NEW BOOK BEING SOLD.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

> FINALLY TODAY, IN

HEALTH NEWS.

YOU MAY ENJOY ONE BENEFIT

FROM

GETTING OLDER.

GETTING HAPPIER.

OVERALL MENTAL HEALTH

INCLUDING

HAPPINESS INCREASE.

THE PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE

MOST

STRESS AND THOSE IN THE 90s

WERE THE

MOST CONTENT.

STUDIES SHOW THE CHANGES IN

PHYSIOLOGY IN THE BRAIN AND

THINGS

DON'T BOTHER THEM ENOUGH AS

THEY AGE

AS THEY REALIZE WHAT'S

IMPORTANT AND

WHAT IS NOT.

THAT IS IT'S FOR CBN
