PRINCE AND AN ACTRESS ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

*

Pat: WELL, AS WE MOVE

WITHIN A FEW DAYS FROM THE

ELECTION, THE TRUTH IS NOW

COMING OUT MORE VIVIDLY.

IT WASN'T HILLARY'S

E-MAILS HAVING TO DO WITH

DISCLOSING CONFIDENTIAL

SECRETS.

IT WAS THE COVERUP OF THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION, AND

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT HAS

BEEN DOING EVERYTHING THEY

CAN TO SUPPRESS THAT

INVESTIGATION BECAUSE

THAT'S WHERE THE PAYDAY IS

GOING TO BE.

AND THE F.B.I.

INVESTIGATIONS INTO THAT

FOUNDATION WILL LIKELY

LEAD TO AN INDICTMENT.

AND THAT INVESTIGATION IS,

QUOTE,"A VERY HIGH

PRIORITY FOR THE F.B.I.,

REGARDLESS OF THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT."

IT IS GETTING NEW

INFORMATION EVERY SINGLE

DAY.

Terry: IT COULD BE

MORE BAD NEWS FOR HILLARY

CLINTON'S CAMPAIGN AS IT

IS FACING A TOUGH RACE

WITH DONALD TRUMP.

GARY LANE HAS THE STORY.

Reporter: NEW WORRIES

FOR HILLARY AND BILL

CLINTON AS THE F.B.I.

REPORTEDLY EXPANDS ITS

INVESTIGATION OF THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION.

SOURCES TOLD FOX NEWS IT

IS A VERY HIGH PRIORITY.

THE F.B.I. IS LOOKING INTO

CHARGES OF A "PAY FOR

PLAY" OPERATION AT THE

FOUNDATION.

THAT WEALTHY AND FOREIGN

DONORS MADE BIG DONATIONS

TO THE CLINTON CHARITY, IN

EXCHANGE FOR ACCESS TO

HILLARY CLINTON WHILE SHE

WAS SECRETARY OF STATE.

WHILE MRS. CLINTON MAY

WORRY ABOUT THIS, OTHERS

ARE CONCERNED SHE IS JUST

NOT GETTING ENOUGH SUPPORT

FROM BLACKS AND FEMALE

VOTERS.

THE PRESIDENT WORRIES THE

BLACK VOTE IS NOT AS SOLID

FOR HILLARY CLINTON AS IT

WAS FOR HIM.

CAMPAIGNING FOR CLINTON IN

NORTH CAROLINA, HE URGED

AFRICAN-AMERICANS AND

COLLEGE STUDENTS TO GET

OUT AND VOTE.

President Obama: I

HATE TO PUT A LITTLE

PRESSURE ON YOU, BUT THE

FATE OF THE REPUBLIC RESTS

ON YOUR SHOULDERS.

Reporter: HE REMINDED

VOTERS THAT HE WON THE

STATE BY ONLY 14,000

VOTES.

FOR DONALD TRUMP, ANOTHER

DISPLAY OF VOTER

ENTHUSIASM AS HIS CAMPAIGN

SAID IT WAS GIVEN MORE

THAN $100 MILLION IN

OCTOBER IN SMALL DONATIONS

OF $200 OR LESS.

I DON'T THINK THAT HAS

EVER BEEN DONE?

HAS THAT EVER BEEN DONE

BEFORE?

IT SOUNDS MORE LIKE A

DEMOCRATIC THING, NOT A

REPUBLICAN THING.

THAT'S A GREAT HONOR.

THAT MEANS THERE ARE A LOT

OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO

WANT US TO REALLY GET THIS

DONE.

Reporter: AND TRUMP

HAS GAINED SUPPORT AFTER

THE F.B.I. REOPENED

INVESTIGATION INTO

CLINTON'S E-MAILS.

AN INVESTORS BUSINESS

DAILY TRACKING POLL SHOWS

TRUMP'S SUPPORT AMONG

FEMALE VOTERS HAS JUMPED

FIVE POINTS.

39% OF WOMEN SAID THEY'RE

BACKING TRUMP, AND THAT

COMPARES TO 34% WHO

SUPPORTED HIM ON SATURDAY.

TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN ISN'T

GIVING UP ON WOMEN,

HANDING O OUT PINK SIGNS TO

FEMALE VOTERS ATTENDING

HIS RALLIES.

IN PENSACOLA, TRUMP SAID

HE WAS TRYING TO STAY

CALM.

NO SIDE TRACKS, DONALD.

NICE AND EASY.

I'VE BEEN WATCHING HILLARY

THE LAST FEW DAYS, AND SHE

IS TOTALLY UNHINGED.

WE DON'T WANT ANY OF THAT.

Reporter: HILLARY

CLINTON SET HER SIGHTS ON

THE WEST, HOPING TO WIN

ARIZONA, SOMETHING NO

DEMOCRAT HAS DONE IN OVER

20 YEARS.

SHE MADE AN APPEAL TO

HISPANIC VOTERS AND

BLASTED DONALD TRUMP'S

IMMIGRATION POLICY.

HE DOESN'T REALLY SEE

LATINOS, EVEN THOSE WHO

HAVE BEEN HERE NINE OR 10

GENERATIONS, AS FULLY

AMERICAN, DOES HE?

Reporter: BOTH

CANDIDATES WILL BE

TARGETING INDEPENDENT

VOTERS AND MINORITIES,

HOPING TO GET THOSE LAST

FEW VOTES THAT COULD MAKE

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

VICTORY OR DEFEAT.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WELL, I'M

LOOKING AT THE POLLS, AND

HERE IS THE DEAL: THEY

WEIGHT THE POLLING IN

RELATION TO THE VOTE OF

THE LAST ELECTION.

SO IF THERE WAS SO MANY

BLACK PERCENTAGES OF BLACK

VOTERS, THEY WEIGHT IT

THAT WAY WHEN THEY SET UP

A SAMPLING.

THE ONLY THING IS THE

BLACKS AREN'T GOING TO

COME OUT NEAR AS MUCH FOR

HILLARY AS THEY DID FOR

BARACK OBAMA.

SO THAT MAKES THOSE POLLS

INACCURATE ALREADY.

BUT THERE IS MORE THAN

THAT.

THE WOMEN WHO THEY THOUGHT

WERE LEADING WITH TRUMP

ARE EXACTLY THE NUMBER

THAT VOTED FOR MITT

ROMNEY.

THE QUESTION IS IF HE CAN

MORE OF THEM.

HE IS GOING INTO DEEP

LABORS BECAUSE THE UNIONS

ARE DISGUSTED WITH THE

PROGRESSIVE POLICIES OF

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

AND THEN YOU'VE GOT THE

HEALTH CARE, AND THE

ENORMOUS INCREASE IN THE

PREMIUMS.

BUT THERE IS SOMETHING

EVEN MORE THAN THIS, AND

THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE

CLINTON FOUNDATION.

JAY SEKULOW OF THE

AMERICAN CENTER FOR LAW

AND JUSTICE IS WITH US

NOW.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS

TRYING TO KEEP A LID ON

THIS INVESTIGATION OF THE

FOUNDATION.

WHAT ARE THEY DOING?

SO OUR FRIEND, BRETT

BEAR, FROM FOX NEWS SAYS

TWO SOURCES HAVE TOLD HIM

THAT THE CLINTON

FOUNDATION BY THE F.B.I.

HAS BEEN ONGOING FOR AT

LEAST A YEAR.

THAT THERE IS AN INTERNAL

STRIFE, AND THIS HAS BEEN

REPORTED BY MULTIPLE

SOURCES -- BETWEEN THE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND

THE F.B.I.

WHAT EVERYBODY NEEDS TO

REMEMBER IS THAT THE

F.B.I. IS A PART OF THE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.

IT HAS AN INDEPENDENT

DIRECTOR, THAT'S JAMES

COMEY, BUT THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL OF THE

UNITED STATES, THE F.B.I.

REPORTS TO D.O.J.

SO IF D.O.J. SAYS WE'RE

NOT GOING TO FOLLOW

THROUGH WITH A PARTICULAR

INVESTIGATION, THEY CAN

EFFECTIVELY SHUT IT DOWN.

THAT IS WHAT IS CAUSING

NOT ONLY THE INTERNAL

STRIFE, BUT NOW WHAT

YOU'RE SEEING IS THERE IS

A MUTINY, A REBELLION

INSIDE THE F.B.I.,

APPARENTLY, THAT F.B.I.

AGENTS ARE AGGRAVATED BY

THE WAY THIS HAS BEEN

HANDLED.

AND THE STAND-DOWN ORDERS

THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN ARE

MEETING RESISTANCE.

ULTIMATELY, AGAIN, THE

F.B.I. CANNOT BRING A CASE

IN FEDERAL COURT.

THAT'S THE DEPARTMENT OF

JUSTICE.

BUT THIS COMING FOUR OR

FIVE DAYS OUT FROM AN

ELECTION OF PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES IS THE

WORST POSSIBLE NEWS IF

YOU'RE ON THE CLINTON

CAMPAIGN.

Pat: THE

FOUNDATION -- EVERYBODY IS

POINTING TO THE FACT SHE

HAS LEAKED CONFIDENTIAL

INFORMATION OFF HER

SERVER.

AND YET THE REAL MEAT OF

THE INVESTIGATION IS THE

"PAY FOR PLAY" THAT GOES

ON AT THE FOUNDATION.

YEAH.

APPARENTLY THAT IS WHAT

THE FOCUS OF THE

INVESTIGATION IS.

AND THAT IS THAT IN ORDER

TO HAVE VARIOUS MEETINGS,

OR SPEECHES DELIVERED BY

THEN SECRETARY OF STATE, A

CERTAIN AMOUNT OF FUNDS

HAD TO BE DONATED TO THE

FOUNDATION.

THAT WOULD VIOLATE A

SERIES OF NOT ONLY

INTERNAL REGULATIONS AND

RULES, BUT ALSO CRIMINAL

LAW.

YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO DO

"PAY FOR PLAY" TO A

CABINET MEMBER OF THE

UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

SO THIS INVESTIGATION,

NOW, OBVIOUSLY HAS BEEN

MADE A LOT MORE PUBLIC.

LET ME GO BACK TO THE

FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM WITH

THIS ENTIRE SETUP, AND

THAT IS THE F.B.I. AND THE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE DID

NOT FOLLOW THEIR OWN

MANUAL.

IN A CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION AT THIS

POINT, THIS CASE SHOULD

HAVE BEEN BEFORE A GRAND

JURY, AND SUBPOENAS SHOULD

HAVE BEEN ISSUED, PEOPLE

SHOULD HAVE BEEN UNDER

OATH, AND EVIDENCE TAKEN.

THEY DID NOT HAVE A

WARRANT FOR ANTHONY

WEINER'S ELECTRONIC

DEVICE.

I MEAN THIS IS ABSURD.

SO THEY'RE TRYING TO

SELF-CORRECT IT NOW, BUT

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS

JAMES COMEY, LORETT LORETTA

LYNCH -- NONE OF THEM

SHOULD BE ON THIS CASE,

AND A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR

SHOULD BE APPOINTED.

AND THIS DOESN'T EVEN

MENTION THE FACT THAT

YESTERDAY'S NEWS WAS THAT

THE LEGAL COUNCI COUNSEL FOR THE

OFFICE OF AFFAIRS WAS

LEAKING INFORMATION TO

JOHN PODESTA, THE HEAD OF

THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN LAST

YEAR, WHILE THE CAMPAIGN

WAS ONGOING, ABOUT WHAT

THE STATE DEPARTMENT WAS

ABOUT TO RELEASE OR NOT

RELEASE.

THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED IN

U.S. HISTORY.

Pat: THE WHOLE IDEA

OF THIS FOUNDATION -- WE

UNDERSTAND -- I THINK HIS

NAME IS USTRA, AND HE GAVE

$31 MILLION TO THE

FOUNDATION.

AND THE STATE DEPARTMENT

CLEARED THE SALE OF

URANIUM TO RUSSIA.

THE WHOLE THING STINKS TO

HIGH HEAVEN.

THAT IS ILLEGAL, ISN'T IT?

IT IS ILLEGAL.

I ASK THE FUNDAMENTAL

QUESTION FOR EVERY

AMERICAN: WHERE IS THE

GRAND JURY?

WHERE ARE THE SUBPOENAS?

WHERE ARE WE PUTTING

PEOPLE UNDER OATH?

THAT HASN'T BEEN LEAKED,

OR SHOULDN'T BE LEAKED IF

THERE IS A GRAND JURY, BUT

THERE IS NO INDICATION

THAT A GRAND JURY HAS BEEN

IMPANELED.

JAIMENTJAMES COMEY AND LOR LUNCH LORETTA

LYNCH ARE EMBARRASSING

THEIR OWN OFFICES.

Pat: LORETTA LYNCH --

SHE IS HIGHLY POLITICAL,

IT LOOKS LIKE?

I THINK THE WHOLE --

THAT'S A CLEAR STATEMENT.

THAT'S CORRECT.

IT IS BEYOND POLITICS,

THOUGH.

IT IS AN EMBARRASSMENT.

THIS IS THE UNITED STATES

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, AND

LOOK WHAT WE'RE SEEING.

WHAT WE'RE SEEING IS NOT

ONLY THE POLITIZATION OF

THE F.B.I., BUT THE

INCOMPETENCE.

LET'S CALL THIS WHAT THIS

IS, COMPLETE AND UTTER

INCOMPETENCE OF THE

AGENCIES.

WHETHER YOU'RE FOR HILLARY

CLINTON OR FOR DONALD

TRUMP, THAT'S NOT EVEN

RELEVANT.

WHAT IS RELEVANT, AS FAR

AS THIS INVESTIGATION

GOES, THERE WAS SERIOUS

ALLEGATIONS AS TO

VIOLATIONS OF CRIMINAL LAW

WITH NO PROPER PROCEDURES

FOLLOWED FOR THE

INVESTIGATION.

THAT IS PROSECUTION 101.

AND THAT'S THE PROBLEM

HERE.

Pat: AND THE THING

THAT SEEMS WEIRD IS THEY

SAID, WE'LL GRANT IMMUNITY

TO HILLARY CLINTON'S TWO

AIDES, AND THEN WE'RE

GOING TO TAKE YOUR LAPTOP

OR E-MAIL DEVICE, AND

WE'RE GOING TO DESTROY IT,

WHICH IS RATHER STRANGE.

NOW IT COMES OUT THEY

DIDN'T DESTROY THEM, AND

THEY'RE GOING TO OPEN THEM

UP.

WHAT IS THE DEAL?

THEY ORIGINALLY AGREED

THEY WOULD DESTROY THEM,

OF COURSE THAT WOULD BE

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE IN

MY VIEW.

BUT IF YOU LIED DURING

YOUR TESTIMONY, IT USUALLY

NEGATES ANY IMMUNITY.

THE ALLEGATION IS THERE IS

SOME TYPE OF LYING, AND

I'M SURE THERE IS, WITH

REGARD TO WHO'S H WHO HAS CUSTODY

OF THE DEVICES.

THAT'S HOW YOU WOULD OPEN

UP, SO TO SPEAK, THE

IMMUNITY DEAL.

I THINK THIS RAISES THE

WHOLE SPECTOR OF ISSUES.

WE'RE FIVE DAYS OUT FROM A

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND

I THINK THAT THE REALITY

IS NOT ONLY IS IT

IMPACTING THE POLLS, I

THINK IT IS IMPACTING THE

AMERICAN PSYCHE.

WE DON'T WANT AN F.B.I.

AND DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

THAT IS NOT COMPETENT.

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE

KEEPING US SAFE.

Pat: WE SURE DON'T

WANT A PRESIDENT WHO IS

UNDER INDICTMENT, AT THE

MOMENT SHE IS SWORN IN,

THEY BEGIN TO PROSECUTE

HER FOR A CRIME.

THAT WOULD DESTROY OUR

DEMOCRACY.

REMEMBER THE PARDON

POWER, THOUGH.

PRESIDENT OBAMA COULD

PARDON HER.

THERE IS THE PARDON POWER,

SO THAT LUMES IN THE

BACKGROUND OF ALL OF THIS.

INTERESTINGLY, THE

PRESIDENT HAS BEEN STILL

PRETTY AGGRESSIVE, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS HIS F.B.I.

DIRECTOR, JAMES COMEY,

THAT IS THE ONE WHO HAS

COME OUT PUBLICLY ON THIS.

I AM NOT DEFENDED, AND I

WILL NOT DEFEND JAMES

COMEY -- I THINK HE HAS

DONE A MISERABLE JOB, BUT

YOU'VE GOT TO GET A

SPECIAL PROSECUTOR IN

THERE.

NOBODY TRUSTS THE BUREAU

TO DO THIS.

THEY'RE SECOND-GUESSING

EVERYTHING BECAUSE OF THE

INTERNAL FIGHTING BETWEEN

THE F.B.I. AND THE D.O.J.

GET A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR

AND WHATEVER AGENTS YOU

NEED TO GET IN THERE AND

FIND OUT WHAT IS GOING ON

IN THIS WHOLE MESS.

Pat: IF OBAMA PARDONS

HER, IT WILL STINK TO HIGH

HEAVEN.

THE COUNTRY WILL BE IN

REVOLT.

IF NOT, THERE IS SOMETHING

STRANGE ABOUT THE AMERICAN

PSYCHE.

THEY HAVE TO REVOLT

AGAINST THIS.

THIS IS HORRIBLE.

WE HAVE NEVER

EXPERIENCED THIS IN OUR

LIFETIME, A SITUATION LIKE

THIS, WHERE YOU'VE GOT

THIS INTERNAL FIGHTING

BETWEEN THE DEPARTMENT OF

JUSTICE AND THE F.B.I.

BEING DISPLAYED ABOUT THE

UNITED STATES CITIZENRY.

AND YOU'VE GOT REPUBLICANS

AND DEMOCRATS THAT ARE

OUTRAGED AS TO WHAT JAMES

COMEY DID 10 DAYS BEFORE.

PAT, IF THERE HAS BEEN A

CRIME COMMITTED, IT IS

GOING TO BE INVESTIGATED.

WE KNOW ONE THING:

PRESIDENTS ARE NOT ABOVE

THE LAW.

WHETHER IT IS DONALD TRUMP

OR HILLARY CLINTON,

THEY'RE NOT ABOVE THE LAW.

LOOK AT RICHARD NIXON.

LOOK AT THE IMPACT THIS IS

HAVING ON THE ELECTION.

IT IS BUCKLE YOUR SEAT

BELT TIME.

BUCKLE IT TIGHT BECAUSE IT

IS GOING TO BE A BUMPY

RIDE HERE TO THE END.

Pat: THE RACE TO THE

WHITE HOUSE HAS

OVERSHADOWED OTHER VERY

IMPORTANT CONTESTS -- WHO

WILL CONTROL THE UNITED

STATES SENATE?

THAT DEPENDS ON THE

APPROVAL OF JUDGES AND ALL

OF THIS OTHER STUFF THAT

THEY HAVE AUTHORITY OVER.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT

STORY.

John: THAT IS RIGHT,

PAT.

THE LONG AND UGLY

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN

LOOMS OVER IMPORTANT

SENATE RACES IN KEY

BATTLEGROUND STATES, MANY

OF THEM TOO CLOSE TO CALL.

THE CONTROL OF THE SENATE

HANGS IN THE BALANCE, AND

BOTH PARTIES ARE

SCRAMBLING IN THE WINNING

DAYS OF THE CAMPAIGN.

NO MATTER WHO WINS THE

KEYS TO THE WHITE HOUSE,

THEY'LL STILL HAVE TO DEAL

WITH THE PEOPLE'S HOUSE,

BETTER KNOWN AS CONGRESS,

WHICH CAN MAKE OUR BREAK A

PRESIDENCY.

HOW THE SENATE GOES,

HOW THE HOUSE GOES, WILL

DETERMINE A LOT ABOUT

WHOEVER THE PRESIDENT AND

HOW THEY CAN GOVERN.

John: 34 SENATE SEATS

ARE UP FOR GRABS, AND

REPUBLICANS FACE A TOUGH

FIGHT TO GAIN CONTROL.

THE DEMOCRATS ONLY HAVE 10

SEATS.

AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE

24 SEATS.

I DO NOT HAVE A SENSE

OF WHERE THE SENATE IS

GOING TO GO.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE

DEMOCRATS ARE A LITTLE

AHEAD AT THIS POINT.

BUT A LOT CAN CHANGE IN A

FEW DAYS IN THIS CAMPAIGN.

John: CARLIN BOWMAN

AN ELECTIONS EXPERT

BELIEVES THIS CONTEST

COULD BE DECIDED IN SIX

TOSS-UP STATES.

I'M GOING TO LOOK

CLOSELY AT FLORIDA AND

NORTH CAROLINA, BOTH FOR

THE PRESIDENCY AND THE NO

ONE.

THOSE ARE STATES THAT WILL

CLOSE EARLIER THAN SOME OF

THE ONES IN THE WEST.

YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR

VOTE TO DONALD TRUMP AND

WE'LL MAKE AMERICA GREAT

AGAIN, OKAY?

John: ANALYSTS, AND

EVEN SOME REPUBLICANS

BLAME TRUMP'S

CONTROVERSIES FOR DRAGGING

DOWN OTHER G.O.P.

CANDIDATES ON THE BALLOTS.

ROB PORTMAN PLAYS HARD

FOR WORKING FAMILIES.

John: IN OHIO, ROB

PORTMAN IS EXPECTED TO

EASILY WIN RE-ELECTION AND

POSSIBLY HELP CARRY THE

REPUBLICAN IN THE STATE.

David: A LOT OF

FOLKS THINK THAT THE POLL

NUMBERS IN FLORIDA, WHICH

IS DECENT FOR DONALD

TRUMP, IS BECAUSE MARCO

RUBIO IS ACTUALLY CARRYING

DONALD TRUMP.

John: WITH SOME POLLS

SHOWING DEMOCRATS ON TRACK

TO WIN A NARROW MAJORITY,

ONE REPUBLICAN SUPER PAC

DROPPED $20 MILLION, A

LAST-MINUTE DRIVE TO HELP

KEEP CONTROL.

David: THEY'RE NOT

JUST IN DANGER OF LOSING

THE SENATE, BUT THEY'RE IN

DANGER OF LOSING EVEN MORE

SEATS FOR THE DEMOCRATS TO

CONTROL NOT JUST THE

SENATE, BUT THE AGENDA IN

THE SENATE.

John: THAT IS

CRUCIAL, ESPECIALLY WHEN

IT COMES TO NOMINEES IN

THE SUPREME COURT AND

OTHER POSTS, AS WELL AS

THE PRESIDENT'S POLICIES

AND PET PROJECTS.

David: HILLARY

CLINTON HAS BEEN CLEAR,

SHE IS GOING TO USE THAT

EXECUTIVE ORDER PEN AND

SHE IS GOING TO DO THINGS

THAT RELATES TO

REGULATIONS IN THE

COUNTRY.

AND THE SAME COULD BE SAID

FOR DONALD TRUMP, ALTHOUGH

HE SAID HE WILL USE IT

SPARINGLY, A LOT LESS THAN

HILLARY CLINTON.

John: AND AMERICANS

WON'T SEE HOW THAT NEXT

CHAPTER BEGINS UNTIL THE

DRAMA OF THIS ELECTION

FINALLY ENDS.

> PAT, SO MUCH AT STAKE

HERE WITH CONTROL OF THE

SENATE.

Pat: LOOKS LIKE BURR

HAS THE LEAD.

THE REPUBLICAN IN NEVADA

SEEMS TO BE MOVING AHEAD A

BIT.

THE RACE IN PENNSYLVANIA

IS VERY, VERY TIGHT.

AND TO TUMEY IS IN A TIGHT

RACE.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IS

GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT

THEY'RE GOING TO SPEND A

TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

MONEY.

AND THERE ARE SEVERAL KEY

STATES THAT ARE VERY

IMPORTANT.

IT LOOKS LIKE IF THE

REPUBLICANS PLAY ON THAT

HEALTH CARE ISSUE, THE

OBAMACARE HAS BEEN SUCH A

DISASTER.

AND EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT

VOTED FOR IT.

NOT ONE REPUBLICAN VOTED

FOR IT.

SO THE REPUBLICANS HAVE AN

ISSUE THAT IS JUST

TAILER-MADE BECAUSE PEOPLE

ARE ANGERED BY THE

INCREASES.

AND HILLARY CLINTON WANTS

TO EXPAND OBAMACARE

INSTEAD OF CUTTING IT

BACK.

SHE WANTS THE CANADIAN

MODEL, WHICH IS MORE

SOCIALIZED MEDICINE, AND

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DON'T

REALLY WANT THAT.

IT IS AN INCREDIBLE RACE.

THE ISSUES ARE SO HUGE.

AND THE SUPREME COURT FOR

THE NEXT 40 YEARS OR SO.

AND THE UNITED STATES

SENATE.

AND THE HOUSE STILL SEEMS

TO BE IN THE HANDS OF THE

REPUBLICANS, BUT

EVERYTHING ELSE IS UP FOR

GRABS.

THIS ELECTION IS SO

TERRIBLY, TERRIBLY

IMPORTANT.

WE SAY AGAIN, YOUR VOTE IS

GOING TO BE CRUCIAL.

JOHN?

John: PAT, TURNING

OVERSEAS, IRAQI FORCES

HAVE ENTERED IRAQ'S SECOND

LARGEST CITY, TRYING TO

RECAPTURE MOSUL FROM ISIS.

AND THE LEADER OF THE

RADICAL GROUP HAS BROKEN A

LONG SILENCE IN A

LAST-DITCH EFFORT TO URGE

THE GROUP TO STAND.

al-BAGHDADI ISSUED A

VIDEO AFTER NEARLY A YEAR

OF SILENCE.

IN A 31-MINUTE RECORDING,

HE TELLS HIS FORCES TO

REMAIN FIRM IN THE FACE OF

AMERICAN-BACKED IRAQI

TROOPS.

HE CALLS THIS BATTLE,

QUOTE,"A GREAT JIHAD."

> WELL, THE CUBS HAVE

DONE IT, WINNING THEIR

FIRST WORLD SERIES IN 108

YEARS.

THEY NEARLY LET THIS ONE

GET AWAY AFTER ALL-STAR

CLOSER AROLDIS CHAPMAN HAD

A 3-1 LEAD.

BUT THE CUBS CAME RIGHT

BACK.

BEN ZOBRIST HITTING AN

R.B.I. DOUBLE TO PUT THE

CUBS BACK ON TOP, HOLDING

THAT LEAD FOR THE ONE.

R.B.I. IS JUST ONE REASON

THAT ZOBRIST WAS NAMED

M.V.P. FOR THIS SERIES.

HE IS A STRONG CHRISTIAN

WHO HAS SPOKEN OUT ABOUT

HIS FAITH.

WE WISH THEM THE BEST AND

ALL CONGRATULATIONS.

Pat: THE NICE THING

IS BASEBALL, AMERICA'S

GAME, HAS SURPASSED

FOOTBALL.

EVERYBODY WAS EXCITED.

THE CUBS WERE AN UNDERDOG

FOR SO MANY YEARS.

Terry: WE DO REJOICE

WITH THEM.

THERE WAS SOME CELEBRATING

IN CHICAGO LAST NIGHT.

Pat: IN FOOTBALL,

THOUGH, THIS GUY,

KAPERNACK, NOT STANDING --

THE AUDIENCE FOR FOOTBALL

HAS GONE DOWN BECAUSE OF

THAT.

AND SO THE REVENUE IS

GOING DOWN, AND THE

REVENUE FOR THE PLAYERS IS

GOING DOWN.

THIS IS A PRIVATE

INSTITUTION.

HE WORKS AT A

MULTI-MILLION SALARY FOR

THE TEAM THAT HE PLAYS

FOR.

AND THEY HAVE A PERFECT

RIGHT IF THEY WANT TO TO

FIRE HIM.

THE FANS ARE REALLY TURNED

OFF BY THAT, AND IT IS

GOING TO HURT FOOTBALL.

I'M A FOOTBALL FAN, AND I

KNOW YOU ARE, TOO.

AND THIS KIND OF

DISRESPECT FOR THE

NATIONAL ANTHEM AND THE

FLAG -- THE GUY WHO SAYS

I'M BEING OPPRESSED

BECAUSE I'M ONLY GETTING

$10 MILLION A YEAR IN

SALARY -- YOUR HEART

BLEEDS FOR HIM.

Terry: I THINK HE

MEANT TO MAKE A STATEMENT,

AND I DON'T THINK HE

REALIZED THE IMPLICATIONS.

Pat: THAT'S WHAT HE

WAS TALKING ABOUT FOR

STARTERS.

WHATEVER IT WAS, A FEW

OTHER PLAYERS HAVE GONE

ALONG WITH HIM.

IN BASEBALL, NO WAY.

WHEN A NATIONAL ARCH ANTHEM IS

PLAYED, THEY STAND AND PUT

THEIR HANDS OVER THEIR

HEARTS BECAUSE THEY'RE

GOOD TROOPS.

Terry: AND THEY'RE

GRATEFUL FOR THE BLESSING

OF THE COUNTRY THEY LIVE

IN.

Pat: AND THE CUBS ARE

SO GRATEFUL TO WIN,

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO DO

ANYTHING TO BLOW IT.

OUR CONGRATULATIONS TO THE

UNDERDOG TEAM -- THEY

PULLED IT OFF.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, HE

HAS BEEN CALLED AMERICA'S

TOUGHEST COP, AND HE

BECAME A VIRAL STAR AFTER

TALKING WITH GANGS.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN HE

DOESN'T HAVE A SOFT SPOT

FOR THE ONES HE WANTS TO

PUT BEHIND BARS.

THEY HAVE FAILED AND

HAVE FALLEN, BUT I HAVE

FAILED AND FALLEN.

Terry: MEET THE CAJUN

JOHN WAYNE, CLAY HIGGINS.

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: YOU'RE WATCHING

"THE 700 CLUB."

WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

AND JUST THINK, THE

ELECTION IS UP NEXT

TUESDAY.

THE COUNTDOWN IS ON.

JUST A FEW MORE DAYS FOR

THE MOST MOMENTOUS

ELECTION IN OUR LIFETIME.

YOU MAY HAVE SEEN HIS

CRIMESTOPPER VIDEOS ON

SOCIAL MEDIA.

HIS STRAIGHT-SHOOTING

STYLE HAS LED TO MORE THAN

100 MILLION VIEWS.

CAPTAIN CLAY HIGGINS IS A

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER IN

LOUISIANA, AND HIS NO

NONSENSE MESSAGE TO

CRIMINALS HAVE LED TO

APPEARANCES ON TALK SHOWS

AND NEWS SHOWS AROUND THE

COUNTRY.

NOW HE IS RUNNING FOR

CONGRESS, AND CHUCK HOLTON

BRINGS US THIS STORY.

Reporter: THEY CALLED

HIM THE CAJUN JOHN WAYNE.

AS A STREET COP AND PUBLIC

INFORMATION OVER FOR THE

SHERIFF'S OFFICE IN

LOUISIANA, CAPTAIN CLAY

HIGGINS MADE A SERIES OF

VIDEOS THAT CATAPULTED HIM

INTO THE SPOTLIGHT.

CONGRATULATIONS,

FELLOWS, YOUR STUPIDITY IS

NOW LEGENDARY.

ONE Y OR ANOTHER, YOU'RE

GOING BACK TO JAIL.

YOUR ACTIONS REQUIRE A

RECKONING.

I'M ASKING YOU TO PUT DOWN

YOUR POISON CUP AND PLACE

YOUR TRUST IN THE JUSTICE

SYSTEM THAT SERVES YOU.

Reporter: BUT HIGGINS

NEVER EXPECTED TO BE

FAMOUS HIMSELF.

I HAD NEVER DONE

ANYTHING LIKE THAT BEFORE.

I WAS COMPLETELY

UNSCRIPTED AND

UNREHEARSED, AND I DID MY

BEST TO IT.

Reporter: HE STARTED

HIS CAREER AS A

BUSINESSMAN, AND MONEY WAS

HIS BIGGEST GOAL.

I WORKED TOO MUCH.

I DRANK TOO MUCH.

I DIDN'T HAVE A REAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,

ALTHOUGH I ATTENDED MASS.

I JUST WASN'T THE MAN I

WAS SUPPOSED TO BE.

SO IN 1999, THE MOTHER OF

MY CHILDREN DIVORCED ME

AND RIGHTFULLY SOMENT.

ReporterSO.

Reporter: THAT

TRAGEDY MADE HIM MAKE SOME

CHANGES IN HIS LIFE.

I TOOK A JOB MAKING $8

AN HOUR AS A STREET COP.

I LEARNED WHAT IT WAS TO

PAWN A CHERISHED ITEM TO

PAY A BILL.

I KNEW WHAT THE HEARTBREAK

OF AN EVICTION NOTICE

LOOKED LIKE.

AND YET HAPPINESS AND JOY

CAME INTO MY LIFE.

AND I BEGAN TO REALLY

UNDERSTAND THE WORD OF

GOD.

Reporter: AS A NIGHT

SHIFT COP, HE FOUND HIS

TRUE CALLING.

GOD HAD PLACED ME RIGHT

AT THE PLACE, AT THE

DISPATCH CALL, WHERE I

NEEDED TO BE, AND I HAD A

GREAT EMPATHY FOR THE MEN

I WOULD ARREST BECAUSE

THEY WERE FAILED AND

FALLEN, YES, BUT I HAD

FAILED AND FALLEN.

THEY WERE SUBJECT TO

REDEMPTION JUST AS I WAS

SUBJECT TO REDEMPTION.

> I HAD NO IDEA THOSE

MESSAGES WOULD RESONATE SO

WELL TO A TELEVISION

CAMERA AND BECOME SOURCES

OF A GREAT DEAL OF

ATTENTION, BUT IT DID.

Reporter: BUT IT

WASN'T ONLY SUCCESSFUL IN

TERMS OF WORLDWIDE

RECOGNITION.

THE MESSAGES RESONATED

WITH THE CRIMINALS AS

WELL.

THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE SAW A

CONSISTENT SOLVE RATE,

ALMOST DOUBLE THE NATIONAL

AVERAGE.

22 WOME 22 WOMEN OR MEN OF GOD,

WITHIN HOURS OF THEIR

STORIES BEING FEATURED ON

CRIMESTOPPERS, THEY WALKED

INTO AUTHORITIES AND

TURNED THEMSELVES IN

PEACEFULLY.

Reporter: BUT THE

POPULARITY CAME WITH A

PRICE.

THE ACLU IN LOUISIANA TOOK

ISSUE WITH THIS TOUGH

GUY'S STANCE, PROMPTING

THE SHERIFF TO TELL

HIGGINS TO TONE DOWN HIS

MESSAGE.

THE SHERIFF AND I HAD A

PRINCIPLE DIFFERENCE ON

HOW TO RESPOND TO THE

WORLD'S RESPONSE, SO I

RESIGNED.

BUT NOT OUT OF DISRESPECT

FOR MY SHERIFF AT ALL.

SOME HORSES JUST DON'T RUN

WITH BIT IN THEIR MOUTH.

I'M ONE OF THOSE HORSES.

SO ALTHOUGH I LOVE AND

RESPECT MY SHERIFF, I MUST

RESIGN.

> MY WIFE AND I LIVE A

HUMBLE LIFE.

WE LIVE IN A 65-YEAR-OLD,

1,000 SQUARE FOOT

WOOD-FRAME HOME.

FOR US TO STEP AWAY FROM

THAT STEADY PAYCHECK AS A

CAPTAIN SHOOK ME UP.

Reporter: BUT GOD HAD

BIGGER PLANS.

THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN

PATRIOTS MESSAGED ME,

EMPLOYING ME TO SEEK

FEDERAL OFFICE.

I HAD 20 JOB OFFERS WITHIN

AN HOUR.

I LEARNED IN MY LIFE TO BE

PATIENT AND TO LET THE

LORD MANIFEST HIS

INTENTIONS FOR YOU ON YOUR

PATH.

Reporter: SEVERAL

WEEKS LATER, HIGGINS AND

HIS WIFE MADE THEIR

DECISION.

IT IS MY HUMBLE HONOR

TO STAND BEFORE YOU

TONIGHT AS A CANDIDATE FOR

UNITED STATES CONGRESS.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

Reporter: HIGGINS

HOPES TO APPLY HIS

HARD-NOSED APPROACH IN

WASHINGTON, D.C.

HE IS ONE OF THREE

REPUBLICANS RUNNING FOR

THE OPEN CONGRESSIONAL

SEAT.

LISTEN, I'M AN

IMPERFECT MAN DRIVEN BY

THE PERFECT INTENT TO

SERVE MY GOD, MY COUNTRY,

AND MY FAMILY.

Reporter: AND HE

HOPES HIS MESSAGE WILL

MOTIVATE LIKE-MINDED MEN

TO FOLLOW HIS EXAMPLE.

WE ALL STAND TO GAIN BY

THE RESTORATION OF

AMERICA.

I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES IN

MY CAREER THAT A MAN'S

CHARACTER SHOULDN'T

MEASURED BY HOW HE FALLS.

IT SHOULD BE MEASURED BY

HOW HE STANDS BACK UP.

IN MANY WAYS OUR NATION

HAS FALLEN.

I BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT

MY GRANDCHILDREN WILL NOT

MEASURE MY GENERATION BY

THE FACT WE HAVE ALLOWED

OUR NATION TO FALL, WHICH

WE HAVE.

BUT WE WILL BE MEASURED BY

HOW WE STAND THIS THING

BACK UP.

Reporter: I'M CHUCK

HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT A

FASCINATING MAN.

WE'LL FOLLOW HIS CAREER

WITH GREAT INTEREST.

Terry: UP NEXT, A

YOUNG WOMAN WHO WAS

LOOKING FOR LOVE FINDS IT

IN A MYSTERIOUS DREAM.

I ALMOST FELL ON MY

KNEES BECAUSE I COULDN'T

STAND ANYMORE.

I WOULD HAVE DONE

ANYTHING.

Terry: FIND OUT WHAT

SHE SAW WHEN WE COME BACK.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Pat: A LITTLE

PERSONAL STORY, SOME YEARS

AGO I ASKED MY WIFE HOW

MUCH WE WERE PLANNING TO

SPEND FOR THANKSGIVING

DINNER.

AND SHE TOLD ME A CERTAIN

NUMBER OF DOLLARS.

AND SO I SAID, WELL, IF

I'M GOING TO SIT DOWN AT A

TABLE WITH MY FAMILY AND

FRIENDS AND WHATEVER AND

EAT THAT KIND OF FOOD, I

THINK WHAT I OUGHT TO DO

IS WRITE A CHECK FOR THAT

SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY TO

HELP THE POOR, HELP PEOPLE

WHO DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING

AS NICE AS WHAT I WAS

GOING TO HAVE.

AND SO THAT STARTED A

TRADITION WITH US, AND I

HOPE IT'S A TRADITION AT

CBN, THAT WHATEVER YOU

SPEND ON YOUR THANKSGIVING

MEAL, IF IT IS GOING TO BE

$60 OR $80, OR $150, OR

WHATEVER YOUR GOING TO

SPEND, THAT YOU WOULD NOT

ONLY SPEND THAT AND ENJOY

YOUR FOOD, BUT YOU WOULD

WRITE AN EQUAL AMOUNT TO

"OPERATION BLESSING" OR TO

CBN, THAT WE COULD USE TO

MULTIPLE AROUND THE

NATION, TO GIVE TO THOSE

LESS FORTUNATE.

AND IT WILL MAKE YOU HAVE

A BETTER HOLIDAY.

AND IT WILL SURE HELP A

LOT OF PEOPLE.

WE'VE GOT THIS MAILING

GOING OUT RIGHT NOW.

THESE CUTE LITTLE KIDS OUT

THERE WITH THEIR

THANKSGIVING ATTIRE, ETC.

AND INSIDE THERE ARE SOME

GIFTS FOR YOU,

INCLUDING -- I DON'T KNOW

IF THIS IS GORDON'S.

GORDON LIKES TO EAT, AND

THIS IS PIE.

THIS IS PECAN PIE -- YOU

SHOULDN'T EAT THE STUFF,

BUT WE'LL GIVE YOU THIS IF

YOU WANT IT.

IT WILL TELL YOU HOW TO

GET FAT, ALONG WITH

EVERYTHING ELSE.

THIS THING WILL COME TO.

IT IS A PACKET.

AND IT IS SOMETHING YOU

WILL ENJOY.

AND INSIDE THERE IS A

PLEDGE CARD.

AND THIS IS A CHANCE RIGHT

NOW -- IT IS A

SELF-ADDRESSED MAILER, AND

YOU CAN SEND IN SOMETHING.

THIS THANKSGIVING, THIS

HOLIDAY, IT IS YOUR BEST

GIFT TO JESUS THIS

THANKSGIVING.

OKAY?

THE NUMBER IS AVAILABLE,

THE TELEPHONE NUMBER.

> OKAY, I WANT TO

INTRODUCE YOU TO SOMEBODY

NAMED TESSA, WHO LOVES TO

READ.

HER FAVORITE STORIES ARE

THE ROMANCE NOVELS FROM

CLASSIC LITERATURE.

SHE DREAMED THAT ONE DAY

HER PRINCE WOULD COME TO

SWEEP HER OFF HER FEET.

ISN'T THAT ROMANTIC?

ONE NIGHT TESSA FOUND THE

MAN SHE WAS LOOKING FOR

WHILE SHE WAS ASLEEP.

I WAS BORN IN IRAN.

I WAS A VERY THOUGHTFUL,

SERIOUS CHILD.

AND I GREW UP BELIEVING

THAT ALL FAITHS WERE MORE

OR LESS THE SAME.

IT WAS A MAN MADE THING

AND IT ANSWERED OUR NEEDS.

I JUST WASN'T ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE WHO NEEDED IT.

I ADORED MY DAD.

I FELT MY DAD REALLY FELT

THE SAME ABOUT ME.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, MY

DAD WAS A VERY BUSY MAN.

HE WASN'T HOME VERY OFTEN.

I KNEW HE LOVED ME.

THERE WAS NEVER A DOUBT IN

MY MIND.

BUT I WASN'T QUITE SURE

THAT I WAS ENOUGH.

AND SO I LEARNED TO STRIVE

TO BE LOVABLE.

BY THE TIME I WAS A

TEENAGER, THERE WAS A

PROFOUND SENSE OF

LONELINESS THAT HAD

SETTLED IN MY HEART.

BECAUSE OF MY PARENTS

DIVORCE, MY MOM, MY SISTER

AND I WENT TO ENGLAND.

MY FATHER REMAINED IN

IRAN.

OUR COMMUNICATION WAS VERY

LIMITED.

WITH THE REVOLUTION AND

EVERYTHING, IT ALMOST

BECAME IMPOSSIBLE.

I COULDN'T GO BACK.

AND SO THE WORLD CAME

BETWEEN US.

BUT MY HEART DIDN'T FULLY

UNDERSTAND THAT, DOESN'T DIDN'T

GRASP THAT.

WHAT I GRASPED WAS MY

DADDY IS NOT HERE.

IF MY DADDY WANTED TO BE

HERE, HE WOULD MAKE A WAY.

SO I LOST MY FAMILY.

I LOST MY HOME.

I LOST MY LANGUAGE.

I MADE THIS VOW THAT I,

MYSELF, WOULD NEVER

DIVORCE BECAUSE I SAW THE

PRICE OF IT.

IN MY HEART.

I STARTED ATTENDING A

BOARDING SCHOOL FOR YOUNG

LADIES.

WE HAD TO ATTEND CHURCH.

THEY TOLD THOSE OF US WHO

WERE FROM A DIFFERENT

FAITH BACKGROUND WE COULD

SIT ON THE BALCONY AND WE

COULD READ OUR OWN FAITH

BOOKS.

I USED TO SNEAK ROMANCE

NOVELS UNDER MY UNIFORM.

THE HARLEQUIN, BUT ALSO A

MORE LITERARY KIND LIKE

THE JANE AUSTIN KIND.

THAT ULTIMATE STORY ABOUT

A PERSON WHO IS REJECTED

FROM CHILDHOOD, THROUGH NO

FAULT OF HER OWN, AND

SOMEONE ADMIRED BY

EVERYBODY ELSE, SOMEONE

RECOGNIZED AS MIGHTY AND

GOOD, FINALLY LOOKS AT HER

AND SEES HER WORTH.

THAT WAS THE STORY MY

HEART WAS HUNGRY FOR.

IT WAS ALL RERESPONDIN RESPONDING TO

THIS NEED, THIS CORE NEED

FOR SOMEONE TO SEE ME AS I

WAS AND ABSOLUTELY LOVE ME

AND TO FIND ME WORTHY OF

PURSUIT, WORTHY OF LOVE.

I MET A YOUNG MAN AND WE

FELL IN LOVE.

SOME 21-YEAR-OLDS ARE

QUITE MATURE -- THAT

WASN'T US.

WITHIN A FEW YEARS YOU

COULD SEE THE CRACKS IN

OUR MATURITY REFLECTED IN

OUR MARRIAGE.

WHEN THAT MARRIAGE

ESSENTIALLY ENDED, I CAME

INTO A VERY DARK PLACE.

MY FORMULA FOR LIFE PROVED

FAULTY.

IF I WAS GOOD ENOUGH, IF I

WAS SMART ENOUGH, IF I

WORKED HARD ENOUGH, THEN I

COULD BE HAPPY.

AND THAT HADN'T WORKED.

I HAD A DREAM ABOUT JESUS

ONE NIGHT.

WHAT IS TRULY AMAZING

ABOUT THAT DREAM IS THE

ONLY TIME I WENT TO CHURCH

WAS THOSE YEARS WHEN I WAS

IN BOARDING SCHOOL.

I NEVER HEARD THE GOSPEL.

I NEVER READ THE BIBLE.

BUT THIS IS THE THING: I

KNEW HE WAS THE SON OF

GOD.

I KNEW IT ABSOLUTELY.

AND WHEN HE CAME CLOSER, I

LOOKED INTO HIS EYES.

AND IN THOSE EYES I SAW

SOMETHING I WILL NEVER SEE

IN THIS WORLD, THE MEASURE

OF LOVE THAT PUT HIM ON

THE CROSS, AND THE DEPTH

OF POWER THAT MADE THE

STARS.

THEY SHOWN THROUGH THOSE

EYES.

AND I ALMOST FELL ON MY

KNEES BECAUSE I COULDN'T

STAND ANYMORE.

AND HE JUST WENT LIKE THIS

TO ME, AND I KNEW WHAT HE

MEANT WAS FOLLOW ME.

AND HE WASN'T JUST SAYING

FOLLOW ME A FEW STEPS.

HE WAS SAYING, FOLLOW ME.

I WOULD HAVE DONE

ANYTHING.

I WOKE UP FROM THE DREAM

NOT A CHRISTIAN.

I STILL DIDN'T REALLY KNOW

WHAT THE GOSPEL WAS.

JESUS HIMSELF HADN'T TOLD

ME THE GOSPEL.

BUT I WOKE UP WITH AN

UNSHAKEABLE PEACE.

VERY QUICKLY AFTER THAT,

THE LORD SURROUNDED ME

WITH CHRISTIANS.

THEY ALL INVITED ME TO

CHURCH.

THEY INVITED ME TO BIBLE

STUDY.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY

LIFE, I BEGAN TO HEAR THE

GOSPEL, READ THE BIBLE.

AND I THOUGHT, WHAT'S ALL

OF THIS?

GIVE ME A LIST OF DOs

AND DON'Ts THAT WILL FIX

MY LIFE.

THAT'S WHAT I WAS LOOKING

FORMENT SFOR.

SO I DIDN'T COMPLETELY

UNDERSTAND.

BUT THE PEOPLE AROUND ME

UNDERSTOOD.

THEY WERE DIFFERENT.

THERE WAS AN OLD PRIEST,

AND HE CAME TO ME AND HE

SAID, WHEN ARE YOU GOING

TO COME TO CHRIST, TESSA?

ALL OF THE THOUGHTS IN MY

HEAD WERE SOME KIND OF

ANSWER TO JUST SWAT AWAY

THAT QUESTION.

SO I OPENED MY MOUTH TO DO

THAT VERY THING.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT CAME OUT

OF MY MOUTH?

WHAT CAME OUT OF MY MOUTH

WAS, I ALREADY DID.

AND AS THE WORDS CAME OUT

OF MY MOUTH, I REALIZED I

DO BELIEVE.

HE ASKED ME TO FOLLOW HIM

HIMSELF, AND I DO, WITH

ALL OF MY HEART.

GOD, HE IS SOMEONE GREATER

THAN OTHER MEN.

HE IS THE KING OF KINGS.

HE PURSUES US.

HE WAS THE ONE WHO SAW ME,

THIS FAULTY, AVERAGE,

FALLEN YOUNG GIRL, AND HE

SAT HIS AFFECTIONS ON ME.

MY WORTH ISN'T IN WHAT I

DO.

MY WORTH IS THAT JESUS

CALLS ME HIS BELOVED.

Pat: WELL, THAT'S A

BEAUTIFUL STORY, LIKE A

CHAPTER OUT ONE OF THOSE

ROMANCE NOVELS.

BUT SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH

THE LOVER OF HER SOUL, THE

MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN

ALL OF THE WORLD.

HE IS ALL TOGETHER LOVELY.

HE IS FAIRER THAN 10,000.

HE IS THE LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

HE RADIATES BEAUTY.

AND HE RAI RADIATES LOVE.

THE AMAZING THING IS WE

COULD BE CALLED SONS OF

GOD.

THAT WOULD COUL WE COULD BE CALLED

SONS OF GOD BECAUSE OF

JESUS CHRIST.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HIM,

PICK UP THE PHONE.

SOMEBODY IS HERE WHO WILL

TALK TO YOU ABOUT THE

LORD.

IT IS A REALLY EASY

NUMBER: 1-800-700-7000.

SAY, I WANT TO KNOW THIS

BEAUTIFUL JESUS.

I WANT TO KNOW THIS

WONDERFUL SAVIOR.

I WANT TO RECEIVE HIM.

TERRY?

Terry: WELL, STILL

AHEAD, SHE DANCED WITH

DEBBIE GIBSON AND PRANCED

ALONGSIDE OF PRINCE.

ROBBIA SCOTT SHARES HER

STORIES FROM SHOW

BUSINESS, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Efrem: AND WELCOME

BACK TO "THE 700 CLUB."

FRANCE HAS CLOSED FOUR

PARIS MOSQUES FOR

PROMOTING, QUOTE,"RADICAL

IDEOLOGY."

DOZENS OF MOSQUES HAVE

BEEN SHUT DOWN SINCE THE

TERRORIST ATTACKS IN PARIS

NEARLY A YEAR AGO, WHERE

130 PEOPLE WERE KILLED.

FRANCE'S INTERIOR MINISTER

SAID, "UNDERCOVER OF

RELIGION THESE PLACES HELD

MEETINGS THAT WERE AIMED

AT PROMOTING A RADICAL

IDEOLOGY."

A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT

HAS REOPENED A LAWSUIT

CHALLENGING THE PRACTICE

OF CHRISTIAN PRAYER.

IN SEPTEMBER, A THREE

JUDGE PANEL UPHELD THE

COMMISSIONER'S RIGHT TO

OPEN THE MEETINGS WITH A

PRAYER.

THE COURT OF APPEALS

DECIDED THE CASE SHOULD BE

REVIEWED NEXT YEAR BY THE

FULL COURT.

THEY THOUGHT DELIVERING

ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY

CONGRESSIONAL PRAYERS AT

MEETINGS IS

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

PAT AND TERRY ARE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB."

IT IS COMING UP RIGHT

AFTER THIS.

Terry: WHEN ROBIA

SCOTT WAS 12, SHE SAW THE

MOVIE "FLASH DANCE," AND

KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE

WANTED TO DO WITH HER

LIFE.

WITHIN YEARS, SHE WAS

STARRING ON TV AND IN

MUSIC VIDEOS.

> WHILE SHE WAS

SUCCESSFUL, SHE SOON

REALIZED SHE WAS CHASING

COUNTER-FILCOUNTERFEIT COMFORTERS.

Reporter: HER BIG

BREAK WHEN SHE TOURED WITH

PRINCE AND THEN LANDED A

ROLE ON TV SHOWS,

INCLUDING 91210, BUT HER

OBSESSIVE SPENDING AND

OBSESSION WITH A PERFECT

BODY LEFT HER UNSATISFIED.

IN HER BOOK, "COUNTERFEIT

COMFORTS," SHE SHARES WHAT

HAPPENED WHEN SHE GAVE UP

MATERIAL THINGS AND WHAT

SHE REALIZED WAS THE ONE

THING MONEY COULD NEVER

BUY.

Terry: ROBIA SCOTT IS

HERE WITH US NOW.

AND WE WELCOME TO "THE 700

CLUB".

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Terry: I DON'T THINK

YOU WERE ALONG AFTER

SEEING "FLASH DANCE" AND

DECIDED YOU WANTED TO BE A

DANCER.

OH, MY GOODNESS.

DID YOU SEE THOSE PICTURES

OF THE PERM.

Terry[LAUGHTER]

Terry: EVERYBODY WAS

SO TAKEN BY THE DANCING,

BUT YOU MADE IT A REALITY.

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD

DO THAT AS A LIVING.

I WAS JUST DANCING AROUND

THE HOUSE.

AND I THOUGHT, I CAN DO

THIS.

I STARTED WITH A BIG OLD

PERM, AND CUT OFF MY PANTS

AND GOT LEG WARMERS, AND I

WENT PROFESSIONAL AT 16.

Terry: AND YOU REALLY

DID MAKE IT.

I DID.

Terry: AND AFTER

DANCING FOR A NUMBER OF

YEARS, YOU WENT INTO THE

ACTING FIELD.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT?

YES.

I DANCED WITH PRINCE, AND

I WAS PEARL IN HIS

DIEPPEDZ ANDIAMONDS AND PEARLS.

AND THEN I STARTED ACTING,

AND TRAINED LIKE A DANCER

WOULD TRAIN.

I DID A NUMBER OF SHOWS,

BEVERLY HILLS 91210, AND I

GOT SAVED WHILE I WAS

WORKING ON "BUFFY, THE

VAMPIRE SLAYER."

Terry: YOU HAVE

ACCOMPLISHED WHAT MOST

PEOPLE REALL ONLY DREAM ABOUT,

BUT WHAT WAS GOING ON

INSIDE OF YOU?

THAT WAS IT.

I HAD REACHED THE PINNACLE

PEOPLE STRIVE THEIR WHOLE

LIVES TO ACHIEVE, AND I

WAS IN MY EARLY 20s.

I WAS TRAVELLING THE WORLD

AND IT WAS REALLY

FANTASTIC, BUT WHERE I WAS

LIVING ON THE INSIDE, I

WAS STRUGGLING.

YEAH, I WAS STRUGGLING.

Terry: WAS IT A

STRUGGLE JUST TO FIND WHO

YOU WERE?

WAS IT A STRUGGLE TO

FIND -- YOU WERE ALREADY

DOING SOMETHING YOU LOVED

AS PART OF YOUR JOB.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

DID CHRIST OR FAITH EVER

COME INTO YOUR HEART OR

MIND AT THAT TIME?

I WAS REALLY JUST

LOOKING FOR PEACE.

I WAS A CHAIN SMOKER.

I WAS JUST NERVOUS AND

ANXIOUS AND UNCOMFORTABLE

IN MY SKIN.

REALLY DEALING WITH BODY

ISSUES.

WOMEN STRUGGLE IN THAT

AREA IN GENERAL, BUT BEING

A DANCER AND ACTRESS --

JUST INSIDE I WAS

TORMENTED.

AND I WAS SEEKING GOD.

I GREW UP IN SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA, SO WHEN YOU'RE

SEEKING GOD THERE, YOU

FIND THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT.

SO I GOT VERY INVOLVED

WITH THAT.

BUT I WAS STILL CHAIN

SMOKING AND I WAS STILL

TORMENTED.

SOMETHING INSIDE OF ME

KNEW WHEN I CONNECTED WITH

GOD IN A REAL WAY, MY LIFE

WOULD CHANGE.

Terry: AND FOOD HAD

BECOME AN ISSUE FOR YOU IN

YOUR LIFE IN A VERY BIG

WAY.

YES.

Terry: IT WAS

SOMETHING YOU USED TO

CONTROL BODY IMAGE, AND

WAS THAT KIND OF HELPING

YOU FEEL IN CONTROL OF

EVERYTHING THAT WAS OUT OF

CONTROL IN YOUR LIFE?

A LITTLE BIT.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT HELPED

ME FEEL IN CONTROL.

IT JUST REALLY REFLECTED

HOW OUT OF CONTROL I WAS.

I WAS JUST TORMENTED ABOUT

WHAT I WOULD EAT, WHAT I

WOULD NOT EAT.

I WAS EITHER NOT EATING AT

ALL OR BINGEING OR

PURGING.

Terry: SO YOU REALLY

HAD A BULEMIC RHYTHM GOING

IN YOUR LIFE?

I DID.

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, ONCE

I BECAME A CHRISTIAN, IT

ACTUALLY GOT WORSE.

Terry: SOMETIMES THAT

HAPPENS FOR PEOPLE BECAUSE

WE HAVE TO GET TO THE ROOT

CAUSE OF IT.

EXACTLY.

Terry: AND THAT'S

WHAT YOU FOUND.

BUT IT ALL STARTED WHEN

YOU MET SOMEBODY -- WERE

YOU AT AN AUDITION, I

BELIEVE, AND YOU SAW A

GIRL THAT HAD "I AM"

TATTOOED ON O THE BAC ON THE BACK OF

HER NECK.

I WAS SEEKING GOD, AND

I SAW THIS GIRL, WHO HAD

"I AM" TATTOOED ON THE

BACK OF HER NECK.

AND I SAID, IS THAT

POSITIVE AFFIRMATION, LIKE

I AM THE LIGHT.

SHE WAS LIKE, NO, THAT IS

THE GREAT "I AM," AND

THAT'S JESUS.

I WAS FASCINATED BECAUSE

SHE WAS DYNAMIC AND SHE

BROUGHT ME TO HER CHURCH,

AND THAT'S WHEN I STARTED

TO KNOW THE LORD.

Terry: SHE REALLY

GRABBED HOLD OF YOU AND

WALKED YOU THROUGH THE

BEGINNINGS OF THE PROCESS.

YES.

Terry: YOU TALK IN

YOUR BOOK -- IT'S SUCH A

GREAT TITLE, "COUNTERFEIT

COMFORTERS," AND I THINK

WE ALL DO THAT.

WE'RE BUSY TRYING TO MAKE

OURSELVES SATISFIED AND

HAPPY AND AT PEACE.

WHERE DID THE TITLE COME

FROM?

IT CAME FROM A MOMENT

IN PRAYER WITH GOD.

I HAD BECAME A CHRISTIAN,

AND AS I TOLD YOU, THE

AREA OF FOOD GOT WORSE.

AND I FELT LIKE THE LORD

SPOKE TO ME, SAID THE

ENEMY, WHO'S JOB IS TO

STEAL AND DESTROY, NOW HE

IS GOING TO TURN UP THE

HEAT, WHEN HE DOES WITH

ALL OF US.

SO INTO MY CHRISTIANITY

WAS STRUGGLING MORE THAN

EVER.

SE I CRIESO I CRIED OUT TO GOD, WHY

CAN'T I GET FREE WITH

FOOD.

AND I HEARD, YOU HAVE TOO

MANY COUNTERFEIT COMFORTS.

I HAD NEVER HEARD THAT

BEFORE.

Terry: DID KNOWING

WHAT THAT MEANT COME INTO

YOU AT THE SAME TIME?

YES.

THE LORD STARTED TO REVEAL

IT.

AS SOON AS I HEARD

COUNTERFEIT COMFORTS, I

WAS REMINDED THAT IN THE

BIBLE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS

CALLED THE COMFORTER.

AND HE SAID, FOOD IS NOT

YOUR ISSUE.

WHEN FEELINGS ARE COMING

UP, ABANDONMENT, DID

APPOINTMENTDISAPPOINTMENT, YOU DON'T

KNOW HOW TO PROCESS IT AND

FOOD IS JUST A ROOT.

Terry: AND THAT

COUNTERFEIT COMFORT CAN BE

SO MANY THINGS.

I WANT YOU TO KNOW YOU CAN

HEAR MORE OF ROBIA'S STORY

BY GETTING HER BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "COUNTERFEIT

COMFORTERS."

AND EVERYBODY OUGHT TO

READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE FOR

ALL OF US, WE RUN

SOMEWHERE, OTHER THAN TO

GOD, UNTIL WE DECIDE TO

LET GOD REALLY GO TO THE

HEART OF THE MATTER.

AND ROBIA SAT DOWN EARLIER

WITH OUR SOCIAL MEDIA TEAM
