News on The 700 Club: October 26, 2016

As seen on "The 700 Club," October 26: Down to the wire: Trump, Clinton backers pound the pavement in Florida; Netanyahu says UNESCO resolution ‘continuation of the theater of the absurd,’ and more. Read Transcript


Well, welcome to "The 700 Club."

It was the significant piece of domestic legislation

by President Obama in eight years in office.

He called it the Affordable Care Act.

Most people call it Obamacare.

It was passed by Democrats with not one single Republican vote

in either the House or the Senate.

But it was jammed through.

A man named Jonathan Gruber laughed

at how he was deceiving people as to what Obamacare was.

Now guess what?

It is blowing apart.

It is literally collapsing.

And the word is that rates in the insurance exchanges

are going to go up next year 25%.

I understand in Arizona they may go up over 100%.

We're looking at a shocking increase in what people

are going to have to pay.

So what was the gain?

The left, the so-called progressive

don't seem to worry about it.

Why don't they worry about it?

I'll tell you.

Here's what the game is, ladies and gentlemen.

Don't listen to the media, what they're telling you on this.

The progressives-- Obama, Hillary, and her crowd--

they wanted to destroy affordable health

care for one reason.

They want to put in government-run health care--

single payer, government controlled like Canada.

That's what she said.

And they'll say, well, we've tried.

Look at all we did.

We tried so hard, and it wouldn't work.

And so now we're going to do it right with single payer.

Those greedy insurance companies are making the price go up.

That's nonsense.

They have been in the process of wrecking

one of the great health care programs in the world.

And they want to take control of it

in order to control your life.

Now, while Hillary Clinton was the First Lady,

she was in charge of a health care program.

It was called Hillarycare.

We call it that.

It had 1,300 pages.

And it had a national control board.

And I think the idea is they probably had death panels.

And, according to some reports-- and others,

there's a dispute on it-- there were even

going to be criminal sanctions against doctors who stepped

outside their given exchange.

It was draconian.

And it was so hated that it actually

caused the Democrats to lose control of the Congress.

Now, that's what's going on now.

And that's the game.

That's why Bill Clinton came out against the Obamacare.

That's why people are talking about it.

It's why Hillary's kind of staying quiet.

She wants to bring in something much worse than Obamacare.

But remember, they lied to you.

If you like your doctor, you can keep it.

If you like your health care, you can keep it-- all lies!

They lied to you.

And the behind-the-scenes game is even worse.

So, ladies and gentlemen, don't be fooled.

So we're telling it to you right now.

The game is to collapse Obamacare and bring

in single-payer national health care controlled by the left.

You don't want that.

If they've got control of that part of your life,

think what they can do to you.

Well, now with this in mind, we're

going to one of the battleground states

where both candidates have been campaigning.

It's the so-called Sunshine State of Florida.

It is crucial to the election of either party.

And we've got reporters down there

who are going to tell you what they have found.

And I think you'll find it very interesting.

[CARS HONKING]

JENNA BROWDER: They honk horns--

[LOUD KNOCKING]

JENNA BROWDER: --knock on doors--

Have a good day.

And if you get a chance, vote for Mr. Trump.

JENNA BROWDER: --and make phone calls by the thousands

to spread a familiar message--

Just make sure you get it in the mail.

JENNA BROWDER: --Make America Great Again.

They've been very nice about it.

We're getting tremendous response,

tremendous feedback, a lot of people

are volunteering and, you know, holding signs.

I'm very encouraged.

And everyone I talk to is very encouraged.

I've only had maybe a couple people just don't have the time

or hang up on me.

But I've been very surprised at the response and very pleased.

JENNA BROWDER: In Florida, Trump and the Republican Party

have roughly 70,000 volunteers.

With 29 electoral votes, it is the third-largest state and one

of the most diverse, with red and blue regions

making it one big purple prize.

I think people here are passionate about voting

for Trump and about our country.

JENNA BROWDER: These volunteers understand

Trump is down in the polls but say

they run into a lot of so-called closet voters.

MARY LOU GORDON: My yard guy, he saw my Trump sign in the yard.

And he's Afro American.

And I was honest.

But I said, you're not mad at me, are you?

He said, no.

He says, I'm for Trump.

And he said that my neighbors and my neighborhood are, too.

They're just being very low keyed about it

because they don't want to, you know, get in trouble.

JENNA BROWDER: One group Trump needs to win here,

evangelicals.

RODNEY HOWARD-BROWN: What we've got

to see is people that love the church,

love Israel, against abortion.

That's what's going to make the difference.

Pastor Rodney Howard-Brown says he's not

convinced by the story lines that Trump is going down

in flames.

People are seeing through it.

They understand that there's another agenda going on.

And I think they might not come out publicly

like I'm coming out.

But when they go to vote, they're going to vote.

And I think we're going to have a landslide come

November the 8th.

So what's the vibe with the Clinton campaign?

For that, we head on over to my colleague David Brody.

Jenna, the mood among Clinton campaign volunteers

here in Florida is steady as she goes-- calm, cool, collected.

But there is another word as well

when it comes to organization here on the ground,

and that is "methodical."

Trump may have enthusiasm, but Clinton

has the numbers-- 90,000 volunteers,

roughly 500 full-time workers.

Marilyn Lamont runs a phone bank out of her home

and is ready for history to be made.

She's a woman.

How fabulous is that?

You know, it's about time, about time.

And she's a smart woman.

And I think she cares about all of us.

DAVID BRODY: The thinking among volunteers is to stay positive.

They've heard the chatter that Clinton is a typical politician

and Trump is the change candidate.

But they won't even talk about losing.

I haven't even thought of that because she's going to win.

No, she's going to win.

Close your eyes, don't even think about it.

She's going to win.

DAVID BRODY: Early voting is underway.

And with thousands of ballots already in,

it appears to be an even split between Democrats

and Republicans.

But what will it all mean come election night?

Well, it's Florida so it's never

a runaway race for anybody.

It's almost always going to be a nail biter.

DAVID BRODY: Tampa political reporter

Adam Smith will be looking for one key specific on November

8th.

If you start to see Tampa Bay-- that's

Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Pasco County.

Look there.

If Trump doesn't have a significant lead

in Pasco County starting out, it's going to be a bad night.

And then it's Florida, so you're also

going to look for somebody to botch it up

and us to be waiting all night long for results to come in.

DAVID BRODY: It may be a long night

in Florida, definitely a very long presidential campaign.

David Brody, CBN News in Tampa, Florida.

Well, David is going to have an exclusive interview with Donald

Trump, I believe, on tomorrow's "700 Club."

And as I mentioned, I ran an interview with Donald

on Monday.

And the day after the audience was bigger on Facebook

than it was on the first day out.

So apparently it's beginning to go viral.

People like what he was saying.

It was a very in-depth interview and very convincing.

So I think a lot of people are actually sending links to that.

And it's going all over the country.

So I think that's a very interesting thing that's

happened.

Well, turning from Florida to New York,

UNESCO has done it again.

They voted on a very controversial measure involving

the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

John Jessup has that.

That's right, Pat.

UNESCO's World Heritage Committee voted again today

to approve a resolution ignoring Jewish ties to the Temple

Mount in Jerusalem's old city.

The vote mirrored last week's executive committee resolution

by the UN's cultural arm declaring the Temple

Mount and Western Wall Islamic and cutting

the historical Jewish connection to the site,

labeling Israel, quote, "the occupying power."

And after a great deal of diplomatic wrangling,

the measure voted on today, Pat, did restore Jewish references

to the Western Wall.

Well, that's encouraging.

But I tell you, ladies and gentlemen, I've

studied this for a long time.

And the General Assembly-- the United Nations--

is nothing but a joke.

I mean, it was an absolute joke.

They're overpaid guys that come from these tiny little

countries like Mauritania or something

and have the same boat in the assembly as the United States.

And we are picking up the tab for a large portion of it.

And we have to put up with these nonsensical resolutions that

mostly favor the Arabs and, in some cases, the Soviets-- not

the Soviets anymore, the Russians.

And I think the time has come for the United States

to say, look.

I recommended some years ago in a speech

I made that we have a community of democratic nations

and that we build a new group of people

who are not controlled by dictators or by mobs

or by radical Shia mullahs.

And this United Nations can come together.

It's something that we ought to support.

And we pull our funding for that other thing.

I think it's time to come.

And I wouldn't be surprised if Donald Trump

didn't make accountability a landmark of what

he's proposing.

John, what do you have?

Pat, turning to health news, building up your muscles

can also help build up your brain and memory.

That's the finding from a study on people

between the ages of 55 to 86 who lifted weights

in supervised sessions for six months.

At the start, all of them had some mild memory

and thinking problems.

But they lifted twice a week at 80%

of their maximum capability.

The study found the stronger they became,

the more it benefited their brain.

And those benefits lasted at least a year.

Pat, time for us all to go hit the gym.

Well, man, I hit it pretty hard.

I was lifting some pretty serious weights

a few years ago.

Then I had a partial knee replacement,

and I decided I couldn't.

I used to work.

I mean, I warmed up with 500 pounds.

And then I did 30 reps at 1,000 pounds on a leg press.

And it was interesting what was being done.

I don't know if it helped my mind at all,

but my legs were sure sore.
