On CBN Newswatch, May 17: White House denies Trump asked Comey to shut down Flynn investigation; Is Western Wall in Israel? White House declines to say, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: AND THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH," I'M EFREM

GRAHAM.

MORE INTELLIGENCE LEAKS

TO REPORTERS ARE CREATING

MORE DISTRACTIONS FOR THE

PRESIDENT.

THERE IS AN F.B.I.

DOCUMENT THAT ACCUSES THE

PRESIDENT OF TRYING TO

IMPEDE A FEDERAL

INVESTIGATION.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS MORE.

Jennifer: ANOTHER

NEWS CYCLE, ANOTHER

HEADACHE FOR PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

THIS TIME SOMEONE LEAKED

AN F.B.I. MEMO TO THE "NEW

YORK TIMES" THAT FORMER

DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY

ALLEGEDLY WROTE AFTER AN

OVAL OFFICE MEETING WITH

THE PRESIDENT.

WRITTEN ONE DAY AFTER

FORMER NATIONAL SECURITY

ADVISOR MICHAEL FLYNN

RESIGNED.

THE NEWSPAPER QUOTES THE

PRESIDENT IN THE MEMO AS

TELLING COMEY, "I HOPE YOU

CAN SEE YOUR WAY CLEAR OF

LETTING THIS GO, OF

LETTING FLYNN GO.

HE IS A GOOD GUY."

THE WHITE HOUSE FIRED

BACK, "WHILE THE PRESIDENT

HAS EXPRESSED THE VIEW

THAT FLYNN IS A GOOD MAN

WHO HAS SERVED AND

PROTECTED OUR COUNTRY, THE

PRESIDENT HAS NEVER ASKED

MR. COMEY OR ANYONE ELSE

TO LET SOMEONE GO."

THERE WAS NO EFFORT TO

IMPEDE THE INVESTIGATION

INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE

IN THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN.

THE "WASHINGTON POST"

ACCUSED THE PRESIDENT OF

EXPOSING CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION DURING A

RECENT MEETING WITH THE

RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTER

AND AMBASSADOR.

BUT H.R. McMASTER

DOUBLED DOWN ON HIS

DEFENSE OF THE PRESIDENT.

THE PRESIDENT IN NO WAY

COMPROMISED ANY SOURCES OR

METHODS IN THE COURSE OF

THIS CONVERSATION.

Jennifer: McMASTER,

SECRETARY OF STATE REX

TILLERSON, AND DEPUTY

NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR

DINA POWELL WERE ALL IN

THE ROOM AND ALL DEEMED

THAT THE PRESIDENT'S

CONVERSATION WAS

APPROPRIATE.

THERE ARE NATIONAL

SECURITY THAT HAS BEEN AT

RISK BY THOSE VIOLATING

CONFIDENTIALITY.

PRESIDENT TRUM President Trump: WE

HAD A VERY, VERY

SUCCESSFUL MEETING WITH

REGARDS TO RUSSIA.

OUR FIGHT IS AGAINST

RUSSIA.

WE WANT TO GET AS MANY TO

HELP FIGHT TERRORISM AS

POSSIBLE.

Jennifer: AS THESE

CONTROVERSIES PLAYED OUT,

AN INCREASINGLY

CONTROVERSIAL WORLD FIGURE

ARRIVED AT THE WHITE

HOUSE: TURKISH PRESIDENT

ERDOGAN.

AFTER NARROWLY WINNING A

REFERENDUM THAT GIVES HIM

POWER OVER ALL THREE

BRANCHES OF GOVERNMENT, HE

IS LEADING TURKEY TOWARDS

TOTALATARIANISM.

IT HAS BEEN ESPECIALLY

HARSH FOR CHRISTIANS AND

OTHER NON-MUSLIMS LIVING

IN THE COUNTRY.

PRESIDENT ERDOGAN IS

SENDING A POWERFUL

MESSAGE, AND THAT MESSAGE

IS THAT CHRISTIANITY,

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, HAVE NO

PLACE IN TURKEY.

Jennifer: REVEREND

PATRICK MAHONEY OF THE

CHRISTIAN DEFENCE

COALITION AND OTHERS

GATHERED OUTSIDE THE WHITE

HOUSE TO PRAY FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

ON THE ISSUE OF

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, HUMAN

RIGHTS, AND THE RELEASE OF

PASTOR BRUNSON.

Jennifer: THE WHITE

HOUSE TELLS CBN NEWS THAT

PRESIDENT TRUMP WENT TO

BAT FOR PASTOR ANDREW

BRUNSON, RAISING HIS CASE

TWICE.

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE

ALSO BROUGHT IT UP.

THE PASTOR HAS BEEN

IMPRISONED IN TURKEY SINCE

OCTOBER.

HE WAS SWEPT UP IN A

TERROR INVESTIGATION BUT

NEVER FORMALLY CHARGED.

ERDOGAN CALLED BRUNSON'S

CASE BOGUS.

I THINK ERDOGAN DEALS

BEST WITH POLITICIANS WHO

PUSH HIM BACK.

HE ONLY RESPECTS

POLITICIANS WHO HAVE A

STRONG STANCE AND PROBABLY

THE BEST STRATEGY FOR

TRUMP IS TO CONTINUED A

PRINCIPLED ENGAGEMENT, TO

CONVEY TO HIS COUNTER-PART

THAT ERDOGAN AND HIS INNER

CIRCLE INCITEMENT AGAINST

THE U.S. AND U.S.

OFFICIALS IS NOT

ACCEPTABLE, AS NATO

PARTNERS.

Jennifer: IT IS JUST

ONE OF THE MAJOR ISSUES

THE ADMINISTRATION IS

DEALING WITH, WHILE ALSO

TRYING TO PUT OUT GROWING

POLITICAL FIRES HERE IN

WASHINGTON.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Efrem: THE PRESIDENT

IS HUMMING A DIFFERENT

TUNE WHEN IT COMES TO

MOVING THE U.S. EMBASSY IN

ISRAEL FROM TEL AVIV TO

JERUSALEM SINCE ENTERING

THE WHITE HOUSE.

ISRAELIS HAD HIGH HOPES

FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AFTER

HIS UNAPOLOGETIC

PRO-ISRAEL TALK ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL.

THE RECENT COMMENTS SHED A

LESS THAN PROMISING LIGHT.

HE SAID THERE IS NO DOUBT

THAT THE WESTERN WALL IS

IN JERUSALEM, BUT THERE

ARE ISSUES THEY ARE TAKING

INTO CONSIDERATION.

BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP

DOESN'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME

TO MAKE A DECISION.

THE SIX-MONTH WAIVER THAT

ALLOWS THEM TO STAY IN TEL

AVIV EXPIRES JUNE 2nd.

YOU CAN READ MORE ABOUT

THIS AT OUR WEBSITE, AND,

OF COURSE, THAT IS

cbnnews.com.

> AMBASSADOR NIKKI HALEY

IS THE NOT SHY ABOUT HER

CLAIMS THE WESTERN WALL IS

PART OF ISRAEL.

IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

WITH DAVID BRODY, SHE

WEIGHED IN ON THE MATTER

AND OTHER FOREIGN POLICY

ISSUES FACING OUR COUNTRY.

David: WELL, IT IS

DEFINITELY A DIFFERENT AND

NEW DAY IN D.C. UNDER

PRESIDENT TRUMP, BUT IT IS

ALSO A NEW DAY HERE IN NEW

YORK AT THE UNITED

NATIONS, AND THAT'S

BECAUSE THE U.S.

AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N.,

NIKKI HALEY, HAS BEEN

SHOWING STRENGTH RIGHT

FROM THE GET-GO.

AS A MATTER OF FACT, SHE

SAID, IF YOU DON'T HAVE

THE UNITED NATIONS' BACK,

THEN, QUOTE, "WE'RE GOING

TO BE TAKING NAMES."

SO THERE WAS NO NONSENSE

RIGHT FROM THE START.

WE CAME UP HERE TO TALK

WITH NIKKI HALEY,

ONE-ON-ONE, AND SHE TALKED

ABOUT A LOT OF DIFFERENT

SUBJECTS, BUT OBVIOUSLY

RUSSIA IN THE NEWS, AND

ISRAEL AS WELL.

> THIS LATEST STUFF THAT

HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS ABOUT

THE PRESIDENT AND RUSSIA

AND SOME OF THIS

CLASSIFIED MATERIAL THAT

HAS BEEN OUT THERE, WHAT

IS YOUR TAKE ON THAT?

HOW HARD IS THIS

NAVIGATEDED ANAVIGATEDAT THE U.N. WHEN YOU HAVE

STORIES LIKE THIS FROM THE

"WASHINGTON POST."

TYPICALLY THE

INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

HAS NOT TALKED WITH ME

ABOUT DOMESTIC ISSUES.

CERTAINLY IT IS A LIT LITTLE

FRESH.

THE ONE THING WE WANT TO

MAKE SURE OF IS IF THERE

WAS SOME SORT OF ABUSE OF

CLASSIFIED INFORMATION,

THAT'S SERIOUS.

BUT GOING ON WHAT GENERAL

McMASTER HAS SAID, HE

DOESN'T BELIEVE THAT HAS

HAPPENED.

WE'LL HAVE TO WAIT AND

SEE.

David: THE MEDIA IS

GOING TO TRY TO MAKE A

RIFT BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT

AND ISRAEL AS IT RELATES

TO THIS WHOLE WESTERN WALL

THING THAT HAS COME UP

NOW.

THERE WAS THAT REPORT

ABOUT WESTERN WALL NOT

BEING PART OF ISRAEL.

THAT HAS GOT TO BE A BIT

CONTROVERSIAL.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE

POLICY OF THE

ADMINISTRATION IS, BUT I

BELIEVE THE WESTERN WALL

IS PART OF ISRAEL.

I THINK THAT IS HOW WE'VE

ALWAYS SEEN IT, AND THAT'S

HOW WE SHOULD PURSUE IT.

I'M NOT REAL SURE WHAT

HAPPENED WITH THAT ISSUE,

BUT I KNOW THEY'RE TRYING

TO FIX THAT AND GET THAT

TAKEN CARE OF.

WE'VE ALWAYS THOUGHT THE

WESTERN WALL IS PART OF

INDUSTRY.

David: I UNDERSTAND

THE JERUSALEM EMBASSY

QUESTION -- I GET THAT IS

NOT YOUR PURVIEW.

BUT FROM THE UNITED

NATIONS' STANDPOINT, WHAT

IS THE TRICKY POINT OF

THAT?

THAT WILL BE VERY

CONTROVERSIAL IF IT EVER

DID HAPPEN.

HOW DOES THIS

ADMINISTRATION KIND OF

NEGOTIATE THAT, BECAUSE

THAT WAS A PROMISE, IF YOU

WILL, THAT HE DID SAY ON

THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL THAT HE

WANTED THAT, BUT MAYBE

THERE ARE POLITICS

INVOLVED HERE.

OBVIOUSLY I BELIEVE

THAT THE CAPITAL SHOULD BE

JERUSALEM AND THE EMBASSY

SHOULD BE MOVED TO

JERUSALEM BECAUSE IF YOU

LOOK AT IT, ALL OF THEIR

GOVERNMENT IS IN

JERUSALEM.

SO MUCH OF WHAT GOES ON IS

IN JERUSALEM.

I THINK THE TRICKY PART IS

WHERE THE PALESTINIANS

COME IN ON THIS AND WHERE

THE ISRAELIS COME IN ON

THIS.

WE KNOW THE ISRAELIS DON'T

WANT TO GIVE ON JERUSALEM

AT ALL, AND WE HAVE TO SEE

HOW STRONG THE

PALESTINIANS STAND ON

THAT.

I THINK THAT IS YOUR

TOUCHY PART, IS JERUSALEM

EVEN ON THE TABLE?

I DON'T KNOW THAT IT IS.

WE MAY STOP JUST WITH THAT

TALKINGPOINT, BUT WE'LL

HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE.

David: NIKKI HALEY

TALKING ABOUT TWO CRUCIAL

ISSUES IN THE WORLD.

WE DISCUSS THAT AND YOU

CAN CATCH IT ON MY BLOG

cbnnews.com, AND JUST GO

TO "THE BRODY FILE".

AND THE PRESIDENT WILL BE

GOING OVERSEAS, TO

JERUSALEM, ROME, AND SAUDI

ARABIA, AND CBN NEWS WILL

BE WITH THE PRESIDENT

EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

DAVID BRODY, CBN NEWS, NEW

YORK.

Efrem: WORKERS IN NEW

ORLEANS HAVE REMOVED A

CONFEDERATE MOMENT.

THE STATUE OF BEAUREGARD

IS THE THIRD OF FOUR

MONUMENTS THE CITY HAS

TAKEN DOWN.

NEW ORLEANS' CITY COUNCIL

APPROVED THE MOVE LAST

YEAR AFTER THE EMOTIONAL

2015 MASSACRE OF NINE

BLACK PARISHIONERS AT A

SOUTH CAROLINA CHURCH.

OFFICIALS WERE MET WITH

OPPOSITION FROM SUPPORTERS

WHO FOUGHT TO KEEP THEM

UP.

SUPPORTERS SAY REMOVING

THE MONUMENT IS AKIN TO

REMOVING HISTORY.

SOME SAY THEY GLORIFY A

SHAM FULL PARSHAMEFUL PART OF THE

COUNTRY'S HISTORY.

> TWO TORNADOES

FLATTENED A MOBILE HOME

PARK IN WISCONSIN.

ONE PERSON WAS KILLED

THERE.

ANOTHER TORNADO DAMAGED A

SUB DITIOSUBDIVISION IN OKLAHOMA

WHERE A SECOND PERSON

DIED.

MANY ARE THANKFUL THEY

MADE IT OUT ALIVE.

GOD ANSWERED OUR

PRAYERS BECAUSE OUR HOUSE

WAS BARELY TOUCHED, AND

I'M REALLY THANKFUL FOR

THAT.

Efrem: IN OKLAHOMA,

OFFICIALS SAY THERE ARE

STILL RESIDENTS WHO ARE

UNACCOUNTEDED FOR.

CHRISTIAN HOST HANK

SHARED AN UPDATE ON HIS

CANCER BATTLE.

HE SAID HE WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH MANTEL CELL LYMPHOMA,

BUT ON TUESDAY HE SAID THE

TUMORS HAVE SPREAD

THROUGHOUT HIS ENTIRE

BODY.

HE SAID THE NEWS HIT HIM

WITH, QUOTE, "THE FORCE OF

A SLEDGEHAMMER."

BUT HE SAYS THE PRAYERS

HAVE MADE HIM OPTMISTIC.

HERE TO COME ON CBN

"NEWSWATCH," WITNESS

PROPHECY UNFOLDING IN THE

WEST BANK, AND SEE WHY THE

LAUGHTER OF THESE CHILDREN

ARE SIGNALS OF A PIVOTAL

POINT IN HISTORY.

Efrem: ISRAEL AND THE

WORLD ARE WONDERING WHAT

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS

PLANNING DURING THIS VISIT

TO THE MIDDLE EAST NEXT

WEEK.

WILL HE CALL FOR THE U.S.

EMBASSY TO BE MOVED?

COULD HE PRESENT A PEACE

PLAN?

PREVIOUS PLANS HAVE CALLED

ON ISRAEL TO TURN OVER

LAND IT WON DURING THE

1967 SIX-DAY WAR IN

EXCHANGE FOR PEACE, BUT

THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE FOR

THOSE WHO BELIEVE GOD GAVE

THEM THAT LAND, TO THE

JEWISH PEOPLE, AS PART OF

THEIR DIVINE INHERIT

TENNIS.

INHERITANCE.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS MORE.

Chris: MUCH OF THE

WORLD CALLS THE PLAYGROUND

THESE CHILDREN ENJOY AN

OBSTACLE TO PEACE.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY'RE IN

JUDEA AND SAMARIA,

OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE

WEST BANK.

ARE WE WITNESSING PROPHECY

UNFOLDING RIGHT NOW AFTER

THE 1967 WAR?

ABSOLUTELY.

IT SAYS THE SOUNDS OF

CHILDREN PLAYING IN THE

STREETS WILL BE HEARD ONCE

AGAIN.

YOU HEAR IT.

YOU SEE IT.

Chris: I SPOKE WITH

FORMER SHILO MAYOR DAVID

RUBIN IN SHILO,

OVERLOOKING THE ROAD OF

THE PATRIARCHS, THE

HIGHWAY ABE EISENHOWER ABRAHAM, ISAAC,

AND JACOB WOULD HAVE

TRAVELLED ON.

THE ROAD OPENED THE DOOR

FOR JEWISH PEOPLE TO

REDEEM THE BIBLICAL

HEARTLAND AFTER 2,000

YEARS IN EXILE.

PLACES LIKE JERUSALEM,

HOME OF TWO CONSECUTIVE

JEWISH TEMPLES, BETHLEHEM,

THE BIRTHPLACE OF JESUS,

HEBRON, WHERE ABRAHAM,

ISAAC, AND JACOB AND THEIR

WIVES ARE BURIED.

AND SHILO, WHERE THE

TABERNACLE STOOD FOR 369

YEARS.

THEY ALL CAME BACK INTO

ISRAELI HANDS.

SO YOU SEE THE 1967

SIX-DAY WAR LIKE A PROV PROPHETIC

PERIOD IN THE TIME OF

HISTORY?

YES.

YOU SEE THE DRY BONES.

IF WE DON'T HAVE A RIGHT

TO SHILO, WE DON'T HAVE A

RIGHT TO SCHLEM AND BETHEL

AND JER JERICHO, AND WE

DEFINITELY DON'T HAVE A

RIGHT TO TEL AVIV.

Chris: IT TOOK UNTIL

1967 FOR SHILO TO BE

ESTABLISHED.

THERE WERE ISRAELIS WHO

WERE COMING HERE, TRYING

TO SET UP TENTS ON THE

LOWER HILLS OF SHILO, AND

THE ISRAELI PRIME

MINISTER, WHO WAS LOOKING

OVER HIS SHOULDER AT THE

AMERICAN PRESIDENT, KEPT

SENDING IN THE ARMY TO

CHASE THEM AWAY.

Chris: JUST MONTHS

AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR,

ISRAELIS ESTABLISHED THE

FIRST JEWISH COMMUNITY IN

JUDEA, ABOUT 35 MILES

SOUTH OF SHILO.

JEWS LIVED THERE BEFORE

ISRAEL'S INDEPENDENCE WAR

IN 1948 AND WERE EITHER

EVACUATED OR MASSACRED BY

THE JORDANIANS.

WHEN THIS GROUP OF

ORPHANS OF THOSE WHO WERE

MURDERED NOTIFIED THE

ISRAELI GOVERNMENT, THAT

IF YOU DON'T GIVE US THE

PERMIT, WE WILL GO ON

WITHOUT A PERMIT, THE

GOVERNMENT REALLY COULDN'T

STAND UP AGAINST ORPHANS

OF THOSE WHO WERE

MURDERED.

AND SO IT WAS ESTABLISHED.

Chris: RABBI WALDMAN

WAS ONE OF THOSE WHO

HELPED ESTABLISH THE NEXT

COMMUNITY IN ANCIENT

HEBRON.

THERE WAS ALSO A JEWISH

COMMUNITY IN HEBRON, EVEN

DURING THE 2,000 YEARS OF

EXILE, UNTIL 1929, WHEN

THE ARABS MASSACRED THE

JEWISH COMMUNITY HERE.

Chris: A SMALL GROUP

OF FAMILIES RENTED A HOTEL

IN HEBRON FOR THE PASSOVER

SADAR.

EVENTUALLY THEY NEVER

LEFT.

I BELIEVE THAT THEN

ALMOST THE ENTIRE

POPULATION OF ISRAEL WAS

WITH US.

EVEN MORE THAN A HALF YEAR

AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR, THE

SPIRITS WERE HIGH AMONG

ALMOST THE ENTIRE

POPULATION.

THOUSANDS OF ISRAELI

PILGRIMS ENTER THE OLD

CITY OF JERUSALEM FOR

SOLEMN RELIGIOUS

CEREMONIES.

ALL OF THE MEDIA WAS

WITH US.

I EVEN REMEMBER HEADLINES,

PASSAGES OF THE PROPHETS

HOVERING IN THE AIR.

Chris: AFTER 50

YEARS, SOME 430,000

ISRAELIS LIVE IN MORE THAN

200 COMMUNITIES IN JUDEA

AND SAMARIA.

THE NUMBER JUMPS TO

750,000 IF EASTERN

JERUSALEM NEIGHBORHOODS

ARE INCLUDED.

THE GROWTH HERE HAS

BEEN SO TREMENDOUS.

AND AS WE HAVE GOTTEN

THROUGH THOSE 50 YEARS

AFTER THE SIX-DAY WAR, WE

ARE LOOKING TO THE FUTURE,

WE HAD THIS VISION OF A

BOOMING SHILO ONCE AGAIN.

Chris: 50 YEARS AGO,

WHAT WOULD THIS PLACE HAVE

LOOKED LIKE?

BARREN DESERT.

THERE WAS NOTHING.

JUST HILLS AND WEEDS AND

THORNS.

Chris: THERE ARE

8,000 RESIDENTS IN THE

SHILO TOWNSHIP, AND MORE

THAN 2,000 OF THEM ARE

CHILDREN WHO STUDY HERE IN

SHILO.

WE LEARNED THAT WHEN

ISRAEL IS NOT IN THE LAND,

THAT THE LAND LAYS BARREN.

THE LAND DOESN'T GIVE ITS

FRUIT.

AND NOW THE LAND OF ISRAEL

IS GIVING OF ITS FRUIT

BECAUSE ISRAEL IS BACK,

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT

FRUIT IS WHAT YOU SEE

RIGHT HERE: ALL THESE

CHILDREN HERE.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, SHILO,

IN SAMARIA.

Efrem: CBN HAS

PRODUCED A DOCUMENTARY

ABOUT THE SIX-DAY WAR, AND

IT IS CALLED "IN OUR

HANDS: THE BATTLE FOR

JERUSALEM."

THE FILM HEADS TO THEATERS

MAY 23rd FOR A ONE-NIGHT

EVENT.

> UP NEXT, NEW HOPE FOR

THE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS

LIVING WITH MULTIPLE

SCLEROSIS.

WHY DOCTORS SAY A NEW DRUG

WILL BE THE GAME-CHANGER.

Efrem: GREAT NEWS FOR

THE MORE THAN A HALF

MILLION AMERICANS WITH

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US THE

F.D.A. JUST APPROVED A NEW

DRUG THAT IS SO MUCH

BETTER THAN THE OTHERS.

ONE DOCTOR DESCRIBES IT AS

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A

CELL PHONE AND A LAND

LINE.

Lorie: REBECCA HAS

BEEN STRUGGLING WITH

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS FOR 15

YEARS.

I SURRENDERED IT TO

GOD.

I'M LIKE, IF THIS IS YOUR

WILL -- I WOULD LOVE FOR

YOU TO CHANGE IT, BUT IF

NOT, OKAY, THEN YOU NEED

TO GIVE ME THE GRACE TO

DEAL.

Lorie: LIKE MOST, HER

M.S. CAME OUT OF THE BLEW

WHETHE BLUEWHEN SHE WAS YOUNG.

BLURRED VISION TO THE

POINT I BECAME NERVOUS

ABOUT DRIVING.

Lorie: OTHER SYMPTOMS

INCLUDE FATIGUE, FALLING,

AND DIFFICULTY THINKING.

M.S. IS AN AUTOIMMUNE

DISEASE, WHEN THE BODY'S

IMMUNE SYSTEM MISTAKENLY

ATTACKED HEALTHY TISSUE.

IN THE CASE OF M.S., THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM ATTACKS

NERVES IN THE BRAIN AND

SPINAL CORD.

IT GETS WORSE OVER TIME,

AND THERE IS NO CURE.

I WANT TO BE ABLE TO

DRIVE MY KIDS TO SOCCER.

I DON'T WANT TO BE IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

Lorie: NOW REBECCA

MAY GET HER WISH.

SHE IS ONE OF DOZENS OF

M.S. PATIENTS TO TEST A

NEW DRUG THAT WORKS TO

STOP THE CELLS IN THE

IMMUNE SYSTEM FROM

ATTACKING THE CENTRAL

NERVOUS SYSTEM.

AND IT IS CLEARLY

EFFECTIVE.

IT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO STOP

THE DISEASE IN ITS TRACKS.

NOT JUST THE MORE COMMON

RELAPSING FORM OF M.S.,

BUT ALSO THE MOST

AGGRESSIVE TYPE, WHICH IS

CALLED PRIMARY

PROGRESSIVE.

OCLIN WAS THE FIRST

DRUG TRIED THAT ACTUALLY

WORK.

Lorie: THE DOCTOR SAW

THE TRIAL AT THE OHIO

STATE MEDICAL CENTER AND

SAYS PATIENTS CALL IT A

GAME-CHANGER.

THEY SAY, YOU KNOW, I

REALLY HAVEN'T HAD ANY

KINDS OF EFFECTS FROM MY

M.S.

THAT IS QUITE SATISFYING

AS AN M.S. PHYSICIAN, WHO

CAN REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN

WE REALLY DIDN'T HAVE

ANYTHING TO TREAT

PATIENTS.

I FEEL NORMAL AGAIN, I

TELLING HIM.

Lorie: OCRIISALIM IS

JUST ONE INFUSION EVERY

SIX MONTHS.

THIS MEDICINE, I DON'T

HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT TAKING IT EVERY DAY.

I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT ANY REACTIONS TO IT.

Lorie: IT COSTS

$65,000 A YEAR, WHICH,

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IS LESS

THAN MOST M.S. DRUGS.

AND WHILE THIS

BREAKTHROUGH CAN STOP THE

PROGRESSION OF M.S.,

DOCTORS STILL DON'T KNOW

WHAT CAUSES THE DISEASE,

SO PREVENTION REMAINS A

MYSTERY.

IF YOU LOOK AT DENT

IDENTICAL TWINS, WHEN ONE

TWIN GETS M.S., 70% OF THE

TIME, THE OTHER IDENTICAL

TWIN, WHO CLEARLY HAS THE

SAME GENETICS, DOESN'T GET

M.S.

Lorie: SINCE M.S. IS

AN INFLAMMATORY DISEASE,

THINGS THAT CAUSE

IMFLAMMATION, LIKE

OBESITY, STRESS, AND

SMOKING COULD FACTOR IN.

EARLY STUDIES SHOW VITAMIN

"D" MIGHT HELP PREVENT IT.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: A GREAT

MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH.

STAY WITH US, THERE IS

MORE CBN "NEWSWATCH"
