CBN NewsWatch: February 27, 2017

On CBN Newswatch, February 27: A tale of two parties: Dems plagued by division as GOP unites behind Trump; Oscars mix-up, political jabs make for a memorable Academy Awards, and more. Read Transcript


> AHEAD ON NEWSWATCH,

SEARCHING FOR UNITY, SEE WHY

LEADERS IN BOTH POLITICAL

PARTIES ARE CALLING FOR

CHANGE.

AND SPEAKING OF CHANGE,

FRUSTRATED CITIZENS ARE

ACROSS

THE NATION.

WE'LL SHOW YOU THE IMPACT

THEY

ARE MAKING.

WORLD WAR II HERO, OSCAR

SHINES FROM THE STORY OF A

REAL LIFE SOLDIER WHO FACES

BATTLE WITHOUT TOUCHING A

WEAPON.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN

NEWSWATCH,

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

Efrem: MANY OF THE

PROGRESSIVE MEMBERS ARE

UNHAPPY.

AMERICA'S MAJOR POLITICAL

PARTY OF SEARCHING FOR UNITY.

THAT FALLS ON TOM PEREZ.

WE NEED A CULTURE OF A

DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

HE SELECTED HIM TO BE NO.

2

AS THE FIRST MUSLIM TO BE IN

CORRECT ME -- CONGRESS.

WE LOST NOT ONE ELECTION

BUT A THOUSAND ELECTIONS.

PEREZ' ELECTION LED TO A

SOCIAL MEDIA BATTLE WHERE

TRUMP TWEETED I CANNOT BE

HAPPY FOR HIM.

RESPONDING DEMOCRATS FROM THE

UNITED COUNTRY WILL BE YOUR

WORST NIGHTMARE. THIS ON

GOING

FIGHT WITH THE NEWS MEDIA

SPEAKS RIGHT AT ITS FACE.

AND THE POLL AT THE

CONFERENCE, 86% SAY THEY

STRONGLY APPROVE OF THE JOB

HE'S DOING.

ACTUALLY WAY MORE EXCITING

THIS YEAR THAN LAST YEAR IN

TERMS OF WE ARE GOING TO GET

SOME THINGS DONE WE NEEDED TO

GET DONE IN THE LAST 8 YEARS.

THE PRESIDENT MAKES CLEAR

THAT HE PLANS TO WORK WITH

THE

EVANGELICALS.

I WANT TO THANK THE

EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY, THE

CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.

THE COMMUNITIES OF FAITH,

RABBIS, PRIEST, PASTORS,

MINISTERS.

BECAUSE THE SUPPORT FOR ME

WAS

A RECORD, AS YOU KNOW, NOT

ONLY IN PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE,

BUT THE PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE

THAT VOTED FOR TRUMP.

I WANT TO THANK YOU FOLKS.

IT WAS AN AMAZING OUT POUR

AND

I WILL NOT DISAPPOINT YOU.

THE QUESTION IS NOW CAN HE

KEEP HIS PROMISES ON

OBAMACARE

AND TAXES. HE IS GOING TO BE

ABLE TO WORK WITH THE PARTIES.

A GOP ESTABLISHMENT PLAYER

AND

STEVE BANNON.

THEY PUT ON A SHOW AT CPAC

AND

ENCOURAGED EVERYONE ELSE.

WE SHARE AN OFFICE AND WE

ARE TOGETHER FROM 6:30 A.M.

TO

11:00 P.M..

I HAVE A NICE WARM ROOM.

WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO LEAVE

YOU

TODAY IS THAT WE WANT YOU TO

HAVE OUR BACK.

THEY MAY UNITE FOR TRUMP,

AND WHERE BRINGING THE

DIVIDED

COUNTRY TOGETHER COMES A LOT

HARDER.

Efrem: LAWMAKERS ARE

RETURNING TO CAPITOL HILL

AFTER THEY FACE A LOT OF

OUTRAGE FROM AMERICANS WHO

HAVE EXPRESSED A LOT OF

ANXIETY AND ANGER AT TOWN

HALL

MEETINGS AND MANY

REPRESENTATIVES NEVER SHOWED

UP.

ANGER.

FRUSTRATION.

MORE CONCERNED AND

NERVOUS.

WHICH SPARKED A CITIZEN

LED

TOWN HALL MEETING IN VIRGINIA

AFTER BARBARA COM STALK

WOULDN'T MEET THEM

FACE-TO-FACE.

THIS IS INCREDIBLY

INSULTING TO ME.

THIS WAS HER CHAIR AND AS

YOU SEE IN FRONT OF ME, IT

WAS

EMPTY.

DESPITE THE NO SHOW,

PEOPLE

SAT DOWN TO HEAR THEM FIRST.

THEY ARE COMING VERY FAST

AND WE ARE A VOICE THAT SHE

NEEDS TO HEAR.

HEAR ABOUT ISSUES ABOUT

REPEALING OBAMACARE AND

DEALING WITH RUSSIA.

I'M CONCERNED ABOUT RUSSIA

AS A PROFESSOR.

RUNNING FROM HER

CONSTITUENTS ON WEDNESDAY

AFTER SPEAKING IN MANASSAS.

SHE WAS ASKED TO ATTEND A

TOWN

HALL AND SHE REPORTS NOT TO.

AFTER LIBERALIST WERE THERE

FROM BEHIND.

ONE GROUP CALLING THEMSELVES

INVISIBLE.

EVEN WITH REGARD TO HOW TO

STAGE A PROTEST.

CERTAINLY ENOUGH, NONE OF

US ARE PAID OR ANYTHING OF

THAT NATURE.

SOME PROTESTERS PROVED

THEY

ARE DISRUPTIVE.

WISCONSIN GOVERNOR SCOTT

WALKER TOLD CBN NEWS HOW HE

WOULD DEAL WITH PROTESTERS.

TAKE YOUR TIME AND SPEND

YOUR TIME WITH THEM.

HE TOOK THIS CALL IN

VIRGINIA BEACH.

I'M A BIG BOY. I SIGNED UP

FOR THIS. PEOPLE WILL

DISAGREE. IT'S IMPORTANT FOR

ME THAT EVERYBODY HAS A SEAT

AT THE TABLE AND THAT I

RESPECT THEM AND HEAR THEIR

VOICE. WE MAY DISAGREE. OF

COURSE WE ARE GOING TO

DISAGREE ON A LOT OF STUFF.

THAT IS WHERE THEY FEEL

IGNORED BY MEMBERS IN

CONGRESS.

IT'S TOO BAD SHE WASN'T

HERE.

A JEWISH CEMETERY HAS BEEN

VANDALIZED ONCE AGAIN IN

PHILADELPHIA. MORE THAN 100

GRAVE STONES WERE DAMAGED.

THIS COMES AFTER A SIMILAR

INCIDENT IN MISSOURI.

A MAN DISCOVERED THE

VANDALISM

SUNDAY MORNING. HE CALLED THE

POLICE TO REPORT THREE OF HIS

RELATIVES HEAD STONES HAD

BEEN

DAMAGED.

PRESIDENT TRUMP AND

REPORTS

THAT AFTER THE DISCUSSION,

THERE NEEDS TO BE AN

INVESTIGATION.

THEY ARE CALLING FOR A

SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO

INVESTIGATE THE TRUMP

ELECTION.

WE NEED TO DO IT BECAUSE

THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE.

ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF

SESSIONS WHO WAS ACTIVE IN

THE

CAMPAIGN SHOULD NOT HANDLE

IT.

YOU ARE GOING TO NEED TO

USE THE SPECIAL PROSECUTORS

STATUTE IN OFFICE TO NOT JUST

TO RECUSE.

BOTH THE HOUSE AND SENATE

HAVE ALREADY LAUNCHED

INVESTIGATIONS.

THE FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN

MANAGER ECHOED THE DENIAL.

NEVER HAVE I NOR HAVE HAD

ANY COMMUNICATION FROM RUSSIA

WHATSOEVER.

TRUMP SUPPORTER SAID A

SPECIAL PROSECUTOR WOULD BE

GETTING WAY AHEAD OF

OURSELVES

AND NO EVIDENCE HAS EVER BEEN

PRODUCED TO SHOW THAT THE

RUSSIANS HELPED TRUMP WIN.

MEANWHILE SECRETARY SEAN

SPICER IS LOOKING INTO WHO

LEAKED THE INFORMATION TO THE

MEDIA.

Efrem: CHRISTIANS ARE IN

FEAR OF THEIR LIVES AFTER THE

WAKE OF A VIDEO IN THE

ISLAMIC

STATE CALLING FOR MURDER OF

CHRISTIANS. THIS BECAME MORE

DANGEROUS AFTER RECENT

SEVERAL

KILLINGS IN THE LAST FEW

WEEKS

INCLUDING A MAN SHOT DEAD IN

FRONT OF HIS FAMILY. THE

POPULATION BELIEVE THE

GOVERNMENT WILL DO LITTLE TO

PROTECT THEIR COMMUNITIES.

THERE IS NO LIFE FOR

CHRISTIANS THERE.

THEY ARE THIRSTY FOR THE

BLOOD

OF ANY CHRISTIAN.

THERE IS NO WAY FOR ANY

CHRISTIAN TO LIVE HERE. THEY

SAID WE WILL LEAVE ANY

CHRISTIAN IN PEACE.

HUNDREDS OF CHRISTIANS ARE

FLEEING WITH SIMPLY THEIR

CLOTHES ON THEIR BACKS TO

ESCAPE THAT VIOLENCE.

> COLORADO CHURCHES ARE

STEPPING TO HELP REFUGEES AS

WELL AS CHRISTIANS IN NEED

AND

OFFERING PROTECTION TO MANY

UNDOCUMENTED FAMILIES. MANY

ARE UNCERTAIN ABOUT THEIR

FUTURE AND EVEN FACE

DEPORTATION. FOR SOME, THIS

SITUATION IS PERSONAL.

I UNDERSTAND GETTING --

THERE HAS TO BE SOME. I LOST

MY FAMILY IN THE HOLOCAUST.

WHEN THEY WERE IN GERMANY

SEEKING REFUGE.

IT HAPPENED TO US.

FOR MANY REFUGEES, THESE

CHURCHES ARE THE ONLY PLACE

THEY CAN FIND SHELTER AND THE

LOVE OF CHRIST.

THE PASTOR WILL LEAVE THE

CHURCH IN NEW YORK CITY.

SHE MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT AT

THE SERVICES ON SUNDAY.

THE GOAL TO TRANSITION THE

5,000 MEGA CHURCH INTO THREE

SEPARATE CONGREGATION.

ALTHOUGH HE IS NOT RETIRING.

HE WILL ATTEND THE CITY

CHURCH

PLAN NETWORK. KELLER IS KNOWN

FOR AUTHORING BOOKS LIKE "THE

MEANING OF MARRIAGE".

UP NEXT, THE STARS THAT

ARE

BEHIND THIS POWER STORY OF

FAITH.

FAITH.

> EVERYBODY IS TALKING

ABOUT

THAT STUNNING MISTAKE AT THE

END OF THE ACADEMY AWARDS

LAST

NIGHT.

AFTER A LONG NIGHT IT WAS THE

FINAL ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BIG

PICTURE.

THEY GAVE THE PRIZE TO LA LA

LAND INSTEAD OF MOONLIGHT.

BUT IT DID GET SORTED OUT IN

THE END.

TAKING HOME THE OSCARS FOR

BEST SOUND MUSIC AND EDITING.

IT'S THE MOVIE OF A MAN WHO'S

FATE REVIEWED HOW HE FAILED

TO

USE A WEAPON.

TAKE A LOOK.

DID YOU LIKE THAT?

HACKSAW RIDGE IS THE

HEROIC

TRUE STORY OF A MEDIC WHO

RESCUED MORE THAN 70 MEN AT

BATTLE DURING WORLD WAR II

WITHOUT A SINGLE WEAPON.

THERE IS NO TRUTH THAT

WAY.

YOU CAN'T MAKE THAT STUFF UP.

WE WISH WE HAD THAT KIND OF

STRENGTH AND COURAGE, BUT

ONLY

A MAN LIKE HIM DOES.

I REALLY DUG THE STORY.

OSCAR WINNING -- HE

DIRECTS

THE FILM.

IT'S ABOUT LOVE, NOT WAR.

THANK GOD FOR LETTING ME

DO

MY PART IN THIS WAR AND

SAVING

THE LIVES OF MY FELLOW MEN.

THE FIRST T CONSCIENTIOUS

ACTOR.

YOU CAN GO TO PRISON.

I BELIEVE IN MYSELF.

IT'S THIS UNCONDITIONAL

LOVE BETWEEN THEM AND I WAS

DRAWN TO THAT BECAUSE THE

LOVE

FELT SO PURE AND INNOCENT

WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM

ROMANCE WE SEE ON TWITTER.

YOU DID A LOT OF RESEARCH?

I ACTUALLY DID A LOT OF

RESEARCH MORE ON DOROTHY.

THERE IS HARDLY ANY FOOTAGE

ON

HER, BUT I DID SEE HOW SHE

WALKED WITH SUCH GRACE AND

ELEGANCE.

SHE IS A WOMAN OF GREAT FAITH.

YOU ARE GOING INTO BATTLE

WITHOUT A WEAPON TO PROTECT

YOURSELF.

HE GOES INTO BATTLE

WITHOUT

A WEAPON.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

THAT IS THE QUESTION. I

THINK IT'S MYSTERIOUS.

IT'S DEEPLY MYSTERIOUS.

I DON'T THINK HE EVEN KNEW

HOW

THEY DID IT.

WHAT I SEE WHAT FRAMED THE

STORY IS HE DOESN'T HAVE A

MATCHING. HE JUST PULLS IT

AND

ASKS WHAT DO YOU WANT OF ME?

HE ASKED THIS OF GOD.

WHAT DO YOU WANT OF ME? I

DON'T UNDERSTAND.

JUST DISCOVERING THIS IS A

MAN THAT LIVED.

IT WAS A SURPRISE.

IT'S A GOOD WAY TO PACK IT

NOW.

WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SERGEANT

HEWELL AND DESMOND?

I THINK IT STARTS FROM A

PLACE OF HIS OWN FAITH AND

CONVICTION.

I THINK I RECOGNIZED VERY

EARLY THAT HE IS AUTHENTIC

BUT

AN ABSOLUTE COLLISION WITH MY

BELIEF SYSTEM. THERE IS NOT A

GOOD FIT FOR SOMEONE WHO IS

NOT PREPARED TO CARRY A GUN

AND FIT TO DEFEND.

WHAT ELSE WAS THERE IS A

SENSE

OF HUMOR WHERE YOU REALIZE

THERE IS NO APOLOGY NEEDED.

WE

KIND OF KNEW WHO EACH OTHER

WAS AND WE LOOKED AT EACH

OTHER AND ENJOYING EACH OTHER.

THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT

GIVING AWAY TOO MUCH. WE

PROTECT EACH OTHER.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS TO SAVE HIM

AND HIS PHILOSOPHY TO SAVE ME.

THERE IS AN I YING AND YANG.

UP NEXT, MEET A YOUNG BOY

WHO FLED WAR TORN SYRIA AND

NOW HE HAS A SMILE ON HIS

FACE.

WE'LL FIND OUT WHY WHEN WE

RETURN.

Efrem: THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR

HAS DISPLACED MILLIONS, MANY

OF THOSE REFUGEES HAVE

ESCAPED

TO LEBANON, SOME THE HELP OF

CBN IN THE HOPES OF FINDING A

NEW LIFE.

TAKE A LOOK.

WHEN THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR

CAME, THOUSANDS RAN FOR THEIR

LIVES.

THEY FLED TO A REFUGEE CAMP.

THERE WERE SO MANY BOMBS.

I THOUGHT WE WOULD DIE. WE

CAME TO LOOK FOR A LIFE HERE

BUT IT'S BEEN VERY DIFFICULT.

WHEN I WENT THERE, HE TOLD

ME HOW HIS FATHER DIED OF A

HEART ATTACK AND LATER HIS

MOTHER ABANDONED HIM.

SHE HAS REALLY SUFFERED.

HE'S BEEN VERY SAD. WE PUT

HIM

IN SCHOOL. THEY HELP HIM AND

THE OTHER CHILDREN. SO HE

DIDN'T WANT TO GO BACK.

WHEN HEART FOR LEBANON

WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY CBN,

WENT TO THE CAMP, WE BROUGHT

HIM TO THE CENTER.

I FEEL GOOD NOW.

I HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS.

WE SHOWED THE KIDS ARABIC

IN SCHOOL.

EVERY TIME I WANT TO DO A

BAD THING, JESUS COMES TO MY

MIND AND TELLS ME NOT TO DO

IT.

HE'S ALWAYS WITH ME.

SINCE GOING TO THE HOPE

CENTER, HE'S MUCH HAPPIER AND

HE BEHAVES HIMSELF. I'M SO

HAPPY HE HAS A SAFE PLACE TO

GO TO SCHOOL NOW.

SHE TOLD US ABOUT HOW THE

OTHER REFUGEES HAD TO GO

ACROSS THE CAMP TO COLLECT

WATER.

WE INSTALLED DIRECT WATER

INTO

THEIR TENTS. WE ALSO GIVE

FOOD

TO THOUSANDS OF OTHER

REFUGEES, THEY GET MEAT,

CANNED FOODS AND IT'S ENOUGH

TO GET A FAMILY OF SIX GOING.

WE LOVE CBN.

YOU HAVE DONE SO MUCH FOR US.

WE HAVE ENOUGH FOOD TO FEED

OUR FAMILY AND CLEAN WATER TO

DRINK. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

WE EVEN HAD A SPECIAL

SURPRISE.

A BRAND NEW BIKE.

I THOUGHT I WAS DREAMING.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE I WOULD

EVER HAVE A BICYCLE. IT IS SO

BEAUTIFUL. THANK YOU FROM THE

BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.

Efrem: IT IS TIME FOR YOUR

Efrem: IT IS TIME FOR YOUR

MONDAY MOTIVATION AND HERE IS

A THOUGHT THAT I HOPE WILL

JUMP START YOUR DAY AND

PERHAPS YOUR ENTIRE WEEK.

CONSIDER THIS, GOD IS JUST

AVAILABLE TO GUIDE YOU

THROUGH

LIFE'S HIGH POINTS AS HE IS

TO

MOVE YOU THROUGH LOW POINTS.

THE ISSUE IS HOW CLOSE ARE

YOU

FOLLOWING? GOD IS CLOSER TO

YOU IF NOT CLOSER. THAT WILL

DO IT FOR NEWSWATCH.

YOU CAN GO TO MORE ISSUES YOU

CARE ABOUT AT CBNNEWS.COM OR

FACEBOOK OR TWITTER AND

INSTAGRAM. WE'LL SEE YOU

TOMORROW.
