On CBN Newswatch, June 9: 'Comey's a leaker': The fallout over fired FBI director's bombshell testimony; UK conservatives lose majority after stunning loss for Theresa May, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: AND THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

A DAY LATER, AND THE

FALLOUT FROM JAMES COMEY'S

TESTIMONY ON CAPITOL HILL

IS STILL BEING FELT ON

BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE.

CBN'S NATIONAL SECURITY

CORRESPONDENT ERIC

GONZALES WAS INSIDE THE

HEARING.

DO YOU SOLEMNLY WEAR TO

TELSWEARTO TELLY TRUTH.

Reporter: JAMES COMEY

USED HIS STATEMENT TO

THANK YOU THE MEN AND

WOMEN OF THE F.B.I., AND

APOLOGIZED FOR NOT BEING

ABLE TO SAY GOOD-BYE.

THE ADMINISTRATION

CHOSE TO DEFAME ME AND

MORE IMPORTANT THE F.B.I.,

BY SAYING THAT THE

ORGANIZATION WAS IN

DISARRAY, THAT IT WAS

POORLY LED, THAT THE

WORKFORCE HAD LOST

CONFIDENCE IN ITS LEADER.

THOSE WERE LIES, PLAIN AND

SIMPLE.

Reporter: SENATORS

ASKED THE FORMER F.B.I.

DIRECTOR WHY DO YOU THINK

YOU WERE FIRED?

HE SAID, I'M NOT QUITE

SURE, BUT I HAVE TO TAKE

THE PRESIDENT AT HIS WORD,

AND IT MUST HAVE SOMETHING

TO O DO WITH THE WAY I

HANDLED THE RUSSIAN

INVESTIGATION.

HE SAID HE NEVER TOLD HIM

TO STOP THE PROBE INTO

MICHAEL FLYNN, BUT DID

REPEATEDLY PRESSURE HIM TO

PUBLICLY DECLARE HE WAS

NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION.

COMEY SAID THAT THE

PRESIDENT TOLD HIM IF SOME

OF HIS SATELLITE

ASSOCIATES HAD DONE

SOMETHING WRONG, IT WOULD

BE GOOD FOR THE

INVESTIGATION TO FIND THAT

OUT.

COMEY DECLINED TO SAY IF

HE THOUGHT THE PRESIDENT

OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE.

AS FOR THE PROBE INTO

HILLARY CLINTON'S PRIVATE

E-MAIL SERVER, COMEY

TESTIFIED THAT LORETTA

LYNCH DIRECTED HIM TO

DESCRIBE THE HILLARY

CLINTON PROBE AS ONLY A

MATTER AND NOT AN

INVESTIGATION.

BUT IT GAVE THE

IMPRESSION THAT THE

ATTORNEY-GENERAL WAS

LOOKING TO ALIGN THE WAY

WE TALKED ABOUT OUR WORK

WITH THE WAY THE POLITICAL

CAMPAIGN WAS DESCRIBING

THE SAME ACTIVITY, WHICH

WAS INACCURATE.

WE HAD A CRIMINAL

INVESTIGATION OPENED.

Reporter: AND COMEY

VOLUNTARILY ADMITTED HE

ORCHESTRATEDED THE LEAK OF

HIS MEMO OF PRESIDENT

TRUMP TO A COLUMBIA LAW

SCHOOL PROFESSOR WHO GAVE

IT TO A REPORTER.

HE SAYS HE THOUGHT IT

MIGHT LEAD TO THE

EMPLOYMENT OF A SPECIAL

PROSECUTOR TO LEAD THE

RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION.

DESPITE ALL OF THE WORK

AND TESTIMONY THAT HAS

ALREADY TAKEN PLACE,

SENATORS SAY THIS

INVESTIGATION IS NOWHERE

NEAR THE END.

WE'RE MORE CONFIDENT

TODAY THAT WE CAN, THROUGH

THIS PROCESS, WORK THROUGH

A BIPARTISAN AND THOROUGH

INVESTIGATION THAT AT THE

END ANSWERS MANY OF THE

QUESTIONS THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE HAVE TODAY.

I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY

IMPORTANT THAT THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE GET A

CHANCE TO HEAR JIM COMEY'S

STATEMENTS ABOUT WHAT HAS

TRANSPIRED.

Efrem: AND WHILE

COMEY WAS GIVING THIS

TESTIMONY ON CAPITOL HILL

HILL...THERE WAS THE FAITH

AND FREEDOM COALITION

CONFERENCE IN WASHINGTON,

D.C.

THE THREE-DAY EVENT IS

AIMED AT PEOPLE OF FAITH.

IT HELPS TO EDUCATE AND

MOBILIZE CHRISTIANS.

TODAY'S SPEAKERS INCLUDE

MITCH McCONNELL AS WELL

AS VICE PRESIDENT MIKE

PENCE.

> THERESA MAY SUFFERED A

MAJOR SETBACK ON THURSDAY.

HER GAMBLE, CALLING AN

EARLY ELECTION TURNED OUT

TO CAUSED HER CONSERVATIVE

PARTY TO LOSE ITS MAJORITY

IN PARLIAMENT.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THIS

STORY.

Charlene: MAY CALLED

THE SNAP ELECTION BECAUSE

SHE WAS HOPING TO INCREASE

THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY'S

MARGIN IN PARLIAMENT.

BUT THE LEFT-WING LABOUR

PARTY DID MUCH BETTER THAN

EXPECTED.

JEREMY CORBYN SAYS PEOPLE

HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF CUTS IN

PUBLIC SPENDING.

JEREMY CORBYN SAYS MAY

SHOULD RESIGN.

THE PRIME MINISTER

CALLED THE ELECTION

BECAUSE SHE WANTED A

MANDATE.

WELL, THE MANDATE SHE HAS

GOT IS LOST CONSERVATIVE

SEATS, LOST VOTES, LOST

SUPPORT AND LOST

CONFIDENCE.

I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT

IS ENOUGH TO GO, ACTUALLY,

AND MAKE WAY FOR A

GOVERNMENT THAT WILL BE

TRULY REPRESENTATIVE OF

ALL OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS

COUNTRY.

Charlene: HE ATTACKED

MAY ON ISSUES, INCLUDING

CUTTING 20,000 POLICE

OFFICERS WHILE HE WAS

INTERIOR MINISTER.

THE CONSERVATIVES STILL

HAVE THE MOST SEATS BY A

HEALTHY MARGIN, BUT NOW

THEY ARE A FEW SEATS SHORT

OF THE MAJORITY THEY HAD

HELD.

MAY SAID HER CONSERVATIVE

PARTY WOULD WORK TO

PROVIDE STABILITY,

WHATEVER THE RESULT OF THE

ELECTION.

AT THIS TIME, MORE THAN

ELSE, THERE IS A NEED OF

STABILITY.

AND IF, AS THE INDICATIONS

HAVE SHOWN, THAT THE

CONSERVATIVE PARTY HAS WON

THE MOST SEATS AND

PUBLICLY THE MOST VOTES,

THEN IT WILL BE INCUMBENT

UPON US TO ENSURE WE HAVE

THAT PERIOD OF STABILITY,

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE

WILL DO.

Mark Charlene: MAY WANTED

A STRONG MAJORITY TO HELP

IN BREXIT NEGOTIATIONS.

AND THE E.U. WILL NOT BE

NEGOTIATING WITH A SHAKY

ADMINISTRATION WILL CAST

CLOUDS JUST 10 DAYS BEFORE

THEY ARE DAW TO START.

Efrem: AMERICA'S

AMBASSADOR TO THE U.N.,

NIKKI HALEY, VISITED

ISRAEL THIS WEEK.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Reporter: U.N.

AMBASSADOR NIKKI HALEY

FOUND ISRAELI LEADERS

EAGER TO THANK HER FOR THE

NEW ROLE SHE IS PLAYING.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, WE

SEE THE BEGINNING OF A NEW

ERA.

ISRAEL IS NO LONGER ALONE

IN THE UNITED NATIONS.

ISRAEL IS NO LONGER THE

UNITED NATIONS' PUSHING

BACK.

I FEEL SOMEWHAT GUILTY

IS BECAUSE ALL I DID AT

THE UNITED NATIONS WAS

TELL THE TRUTH.

AND I HAVE NEVER TAKEN

KINDLY TO BULLIES, AND THE

U.N. HAS BULLIED ISRAEL

FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO LET

THAT HAPPEN ANYMORE.

IT IS A NEW DAY FOR ISRAEL

IN THE UNITED NATIONS.

Reporter: PART OF

THAT NEW DAY INCLUDES HER

STERN THREAT TO PULL THE

U.S. OUT OF THE U.N. HUMAN

RIGHTS COUNCIL, A GROUP

SHE CALLED A FORMUM FOR

BIAS.

I THINK ISRAEL SEES

NIKKI HALEY'S VISIT HERE

AS A REAL POSITIVE.

Reporter: MANY, LIKE

MICHELE BACHMANN, WHO CAME

FOR THE JERUSALEM PRAYER

BREAKFAST, SEE NIKKI HALEY

AS ONE OF THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION'S BRIGHTEST

LIGHTS.

SHE IS MARVELOUS.

I THINK EVERYONE IS

SURPRISED AT HOW BOLD AND

FORTHRIGHT SHE IS.

SHE HAS SO MUCH CLARITY

ABOUT ISRAEL AND THE

U.S.'S RELATIONSHIPS WITH

ISRAEL.

SHE IS ANNOUNCING TO THE

WORLD THAT THE UNITED

STATES OF AMERICA HAS

ISRAEL'S BACK.

Reporter: NIKKI HALEY

FLEW TO THE SOUTHERN

BORDER.

SHE EXAMINED A TUNNEL ONCE

USED BY HAMAS TO

INFILTRATE ISRAEL, AND MET

WITH CIVILIANS WHO LIVE ON

THE FRONT LINES.

IT GIVES HER MORE EVIDENCE

OF THE THREATS TASING

ISRAEL AND ITS PEOPLE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: FOR THE FIRST

TIME, THE FOOD AND DRUG

ADMINISTRATION IS ASKING A

DRUG COMPANY TO DROP ITS

SALE OF AN OPIOID PAIN

MEDICATION FROM THE

MARKET.

THE COMPANY ENDO WAS ASKED

TO REMOVE THE DRUG BECAUSE

IT WAS A HIGH POTENTIAL

FOR ABUSE.

THE MOVE COMES AT A TIME

WHEN THE OVERDOSE EPIDEMIC

IN THE U.S. IS AT AN

ALL-TIME HIGH.

> STILL TO COME, IT IS

THE LATEST FAD AMONG

CHILDREN, BUT WHAT IS IT

EXACTLY.

WE SIT DOWN WITH A LIFE

AND FAMILY THERAPIST,

LINDA MITCHELL, WHO TELLS

US IF THE FICH FIGIT SPINNER IS

Efrem: IT'S THE TOY

CRAZE THAT SOME SAY IS

HELPING CHILDREN WITH

AD/HD, ANXIETY, AUTISM,

AND EVEN POST-TRAUMATIC

STRESS DISORDER.

IT IS CALLED THE FIGIT

TOY.

BUT SOME HAVE QUESTIONS.

LORIE JOHNSON TOOK THOSE

QUESTIONS TO FAMILY

THERAPIST LINDA MENTLE.

IT IS A TOY IF SOME SAY

HELPS KIDS WITH A..

AD/HD,

ANXIETY, AND EVEN

POSTTRAUMA STRESS

DISORDER.

JOINING US NOW FOR MORE IS

LICENSEDELICENSED FAMILY THERAPIST

LINDA MENTLE.

YOU WERE SHOCKED I HADN'T

HEARD ABOUT THIS, BUT MY

CHILDREN ARE GROWN.

WHEN THEY WERE LITTLE, I

KNEW ALL OF THE FAD TOYS,

BUT APPARENTLY THIS IS TH THIS IS

POPULAR.

THIS IS BIG.

TO ME, THEY LOOK LIKE A

SMALL MINI VERSION OF A

CEILING FAN.

YOU PUT IT BETWEEN YOUR

HANDS AND YOUR FINGERS,

AND YOU JUST SPIN IT.

YOU SPIN IT ALL DAY.

IT IS A FAD, GADGETY-TYPE

OF THING KIDS LOVE.

Lorie: HOW DID THIS

GET STARTED.

ACCORDING TO WHAT I'VE

READ, THERE WAS A WOMAN

NAMED KATHRYN HEADINGGER, HEADINGER

WHO WAS VISITING HER

SISTER IN ISRAEL.

SHE LIVES IN FLORIDA.

AND SHE WAS NOTICING ALL

OF THE TURBULENCE AND THE

VIOLENCE.

AND SHE THOUGHT, IF KIDS

COULD DO SOMETHING

DISTRACTING, RATHER THAN

THROWING ROCKS AT POLICE,

MAYBE I COULD INVENT

SOMETHING THAT WOULD HELP

WITH WORLD PEACE, OF ALL

THINGS.

SO WE'RE GOING FROM WORLD

PEACE TO A FAD TOY.

SO WHAT HAPPENED IS SHE

INVENTED THIS LITTLE TOY.

AND SHE ACTUALLY HAD A

PATENT ON IT.

SHE TOOK IT TO HASBRO TOYS

AND THEY WERE NOT THAT

INTERESTED IN IT, AND THE

PATENT EXPIRED.

SO I THINK WHAT HAPPENED,

FROM WHAT I COULD PIECE

TOGETHER ON THE INTERNET,

IT LOOKED LIKE PEOPLE PUT

SOME YouTubeS UP AND

IT SORT OF WENT VIRAL.

AND I'VE READ AND READ,

WHAT MAKES A TOY A FAD?

AND NOBODY CAN REALLY

FIGURE THAT OUT.

IT JUST TAKES OFF.

A FEW KIDS START USING IT

AND THEN EVERYONE WANTS

IT.

Lorie: WHEN MY KIDS

WERE LITTLE, IT WAS

CABBAGE PATCH DOLLS, ELMO,

AND THE LIST GOES ON.

I'M STILL WAITING FOR

THOSE TO GO UP IN VALUE.

AND I STILL HAVE MINE.

Lorie: HOW EXACTLY

DOES THIS -- AND FIRST OF

ALL, DOES IT HELP KIDS

WITH AD/HD AND AUTISM?

HOW DOES THAT WORK?

SOME OF THE

MANUFACTURERS SAY THAT IT

DOES.

I HAVE TO SAY, WHEN WE GET

INTO THE SCIENCE OF THIS,

IT IS NOT GOING TO SUPPORT

THIS.

BUT ONE OF THE ISSUES FOR

AD/HD, THERE IS SCIENCE TO

SUPPORT THE IDEA YOU

NOTICE IF YOU HAVE AN

AD/HD KID IN THE

CLASSROOM, THEY'R THEY LIKE TO

FIGIT WHEN THEY HAVE A

COGNITIVE TASK.

AND YOU SEE THE KIDS DOING

THIS.

AND TEACHERS KNOW THAT'S

OKAY BECAUSE WHAT THAT

MISCUL MOVEMENPHYSICAL MOVEMENT TENDS TO

DO IS STIMULATE PART OF

THE BRAIN AND HELPS THEM

FOCUS.

BUT WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE

GADGET, IS YOU'RE NOT

PHYSICALLY MOVING.

INSTEAD YOU'VE GOT THIS

OBJECT YOUR TWISTING, SO

YOU'RE SORT OF OUTSOURCING

YOUR MOVEMENT, WHICH

DOESN'T MAKE IT EFFECTIVE.

AND THE IDEA WITH AUTISM

IS THERE ARE SOME TOYS

THAT OCCUPATIONAL

THERAPISTS USE FOR KIDS

WITH AUTISM BECAUSE OF THE

SENSORY ISSUES THOSE KIDS

HAVE.

SO THERE ARE TOYS LIKE

THIS THAT THEY SOMETIMES

USE TO HELP WITH THE

SENSORY PROCESS SYSTEM.

BUT THERE IS NO RESEARCH

THAT SHOWS THIS WILL BE

HELPFUL.

AND IN TERMS OF ANXIETY,

WHEN PEOPLE ARE

DISTRACTING THEMSELVES

WITH SOMETHING, YOU CAN BE

LESS ANXIOUS.

BECAUSE THE DISTRACTION

MAKES THE COGNITIVE PART

OF THE BRAIN REENGAGE.

BUT IN TERMS OF SCIENCE,

THIS IS MOSTLY ANECDOTAL

FOR PARENTS WHO SAY THIS,

AND YOU CAN'T REALLY

BELIEVE THE MANUFACTURERS

AT THIS POINT BECAUSE WE

DON'T HAVE EVIDENCE-BASED

RESEARCH THAT SAYS THESE

THINGS ARE WORKING.

Lorie: WELL, IT IS

SOMEWHAT OF A DISTRESS

RELEASER, AND IT IS NOT A

SCREEN.

BUT THE TEACHERS ARE

ANNOYED WITH IT.

THEY'RE DISTRACTING.

AND THIS IS ONE OF THE

ISSUES I ALWAYS THINK

ABOUT WITH AUTISTIC KIDS

BECAUSE AUTISTIC KIDS CAN

GET VERY PREOCCUPIED WITH

AN OBJECT, SO THIS COULD

BE A DISTRACTION.

AND IN CLASSROOM, THEY

MAKE THIS SOUND, AND

TEACHERS ARE COMPLETELY

ANNOYED WITH IT.

IN FACT, A LOT OF

CLASSROOMS, THESE GADGETS

ARE BEING BANNED BECAUSE

THEY'RE DISTRACTING.

Lorie: LEAVE THEM AT

THE DOOR.

THUMBS UP OR THUMBS DOWN?

WELL, LIKE THE HOOLA

HOOP, IT IS CHEAP TO BUY,

BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO

GIVE ANY KIND OF CURE.

I THINK THE CLAIMS ARE A

BIT EXTREME UNLESS WE GET

SOME SCIENCE THAT CHANGES

THE STORY.

Lorie: IT IS ALWAYS

SOMETHING.

LINDA, THANKS FOR JOINING

US.

Efrem: UP NEXT, IT IS

CALLED THE SUPER BOWL OF

CHRISTIANITY.

SEE WHAT IS BEHIND THE

"HARVEST AMERICA" CRUSADE

Efrem: SONY PICTURES

IS AIMING TO MAKE YOUR

HOME VIEWING A BIT MORE

FAMILY-FRIENDLY.

IT ANNOUNCED ITS "CLEAN

VERSION" INITIATIVE.

THE MOVE WILL ALLOW YOU TO

WATCH A NUMBER OF SONY

FILMS FREE FROM SOME

MATURE CONTENT.

JOINING US WITH MORE ON

THIS IS MOVIE GUIDE'S EVIE

BEAR.

WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE

WITH SONY?

YEAH.

I THINK IT IS AWESOME WHAT

IS HAPPENING.

SONY IS NOW DOING THE

CLEAN VERSIONS OF THEIR

MOVIES.

THEY RELEASED THE MOVIES

THEY HAVE READY TO DO, AND

SOME OF THEM ARE GREAT

MOVIES.

THIS IS SOMETHING WE'VE

BEEN FIGHTING FOR AT MOVIE

GUIDE FOR A REALLY LONG

TIME.

IN THE GOLDEN DAYS, THE

CHURCH WAS VERY INVOLVED

WITH WHAT WENT OUT THERE.

AND WE'RE HAPPY IT IS

HAPPENING.

BUT WHAT YOU DO HAVE TO BE

AWARE OF IS SOME OF THE

MOVIES THAT ARE ON THE

LIST, STILL, EVEN IF THEY

GET RID OF THE SEXUAL

CONTENT, THERE IS STILL A

WORLD VIEW THAT IS NOT

COHESIVE WITH OUR WORLD

VIEW AND A ROMANTIC WORLD

VIEW, AND IT ALSO TALKS

BADLY ABOUT CHRISTIANS AND

IT KIND OF PUTS THEM DOWN.

WE RECOMMEND TO ALWAYS

TRAIN YOUR CHILD TO

ANALYZE THE MOVIE, THINK

ABOUT THE WORLD VIEW, AND

THINK ABOUT THE MESSAGES

IT IS PORTRAYING AND WHAT

IT IS SAYING ABOUT PEOPLE.

BUT OVER ALL WE'RE PRETTY

HAPPY ABOUT THIS.

Efrem: WHAT DO YOU

THINK IS DRIVING THE

DECISION TO DO THIS?

I THINK WE'VE BEEN

SHOWING THEM OVER THE

YEARS THAT THERE IS A HUGE

AUDIENCE OUT THERE THAT

WANTS THIS KIND OF

CONTENT.

AND EVER SINCE -- I'VE

BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY SINCE

I WAS YOUNG, AND WE ALWAYS

GOT THESE THINGS BY

DIFFERENT CHRISTIANS THAT

WERE TRYING TO MAKE THESE

PRODUCTS THAT FILTERED OUT

THE CURSE WORDS AND THE

VIOLENCE AND STUFF.

BUT NOW IT IS GREAT THAT

SONY ITSELF IS DOING IT

BECAUSE IT IS ALL LEGAL.

IT IS THEIR CONTENT.

IT IS BIG BLOCKBUSTER

MOVIES.

THEY HAVE A LOT MORE

LICENSING RIGHTS TO

EVERYTHING BECAUSE IT IS

THEIR FILM.

I THINK IT IS KIND OF THE

INFLUENCE THAT WE HAVE

TOLD THEM THAT THERE IS

THIS HUGE AUDIENCE FOR IT.

Efrem: GOOD TO HEAR.

> SO WHAT ELSE IS OUT

THERE WHEN IT COMES TO

FAMILY-FRIENDLY STREAMING

OPTIONS?

WE'VE BEEN REALLY

THINKING ABOUT THIS

BECAUSE EVERYBODY KIND OF

HAS THEIR NEW STREAMING

OPTIONS.

NETFLIX IS THE BIGGEST,

BUT THEY HAVE SOME

ORIGINAL CONTENT THAT IS

MORE EDGY, AND SOME ARE

NOT FAMILY-FRIENDLY, SO BE

CAREFUL.

HULU HAS SOME GOOD

OPTIONS.

IT HAS HDTV, AND WE LOVE

CHIP AND JOANNA GAINS'

FIXER UPPER.

AND THEY'RE BOTH

CHRISTIAN.

AND SHARK SHARES OUR

VALUES.

SOMETIMES THERE IS SILLY

STUFF THAT COMES IN THERE.

YOU CAN GO TO PUREFLIX,

AND THAT IS ONE THAT WE

REALLY ENJOY.

AND THEY'RE REALLY GETTING

A LOT OF CONTENT OUT

THERE.

CHRISTIANS, YOU DON'T HAVE

TO WORRY ABOUT YOUR VALUES

BEING OFFENDED.

OR YOU CAN GO TO cbn.com

AND LOOK IT UP.

Efrem: EVIE BEAR, WE

APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING

PEE.

Efrem: THOUSANDS WILL

PACK A FOOTBALL STADIUM

THIS WEEKEND FOR WHAT SOME

HAVE CALLED THE SUPER BOWL

SUNDAY OF CHRISTIANITY.

AND EVEN MORE PEOPLE WILL

FILL CHURCHES AND HOMES

ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO BE

PART OF THE ANNUAL

"HARVEST AMERICA" CRUSADE.

HOSTED BY PASTOR GREG

LAURIE.

THESE ARE A FEW SNAPSHOTS

FROM THE EVENTS THAT HAVE

ATTRACTED NEARLY EIGHT

MILLION PEOPLE OVER THE

YEARS.

AND THAT NUMBER CLIMBS

HIGHER.

I LOVE THIS PLACE.

I'VE WANTED TO COME HERE

FOR SO LONG.

Efrem: WHEN PASTOR

GREG LAURIE HOSTS THE

CRUSADE ON SUNDAY TO

DELIVER THE MESSAGE: ARM,

AMERICA, I'VE GOT GOOD

NEWS.

Efrem IN A WAY, IT IS THE

MOST NEEDED MESSAGE OF

ALL.

AND STRANGELY, IT HAS SORT

OF FALLEN OUT OF FAVOR.

I DON'T GET IT.

I DON'T GET WHY IN THE

CHURCH WE'RE NOT HERALDING

HIS MESSAGE MORE.

THIS IS THE MESSAGE PEOPLE

NEED.

LET'S JUST TAKE TERROR

ATTACKS AS AN EXAMPLE.

IT IS A SCARY TIME WE'RE

LIVING IN.

IT IS HIGH ON THE LIST OF

CONCERNS FOR AMERICA.

WITH THIS SABER RATTLING

ON THE PART OF NORTH

KOREA -- I READ THE OTHER

DAY THAT THE NUMBER ONE

PHRASE IN THE SEARCH

ENGINE OF GOOGLE IS: IS

WORLD WAS THREE NEAR?

THE WORD OF THE GOSPEL IS

GOOD NEWS IN A BAD WORLD.

Efrem: IT LEAVES ITS

NORMAL LOCATION IN TEXAS

AND COMES HERE TO ARIZONA,

AND THE UNIVERSITY OF

PHOENIX STADIUM.

WITH GUESTS SUCH AS JORDAN

SPARKS.

LET'S WELCOME MEL

GIBSON TO THE HARVEST

CRUSADE.

Efrem: ACTOR AND

DIRECTOR MEL GIBSON MADE A

SURPRISE APPEARANCE AT

LAST YEAR'S HARVEST

CRUSADE.

> CAN YOU GIVE US ANY

HINT OF SURPRISES TO LOOK

FORWARD TO THIS YEAR?

FOR HARVEST AMERICA, I

DON'T HAVE ANYONE I'M

INTERVIEWING RIGHT NOW.

OUR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

HARVEST, I'M GOING TO

INTERVIEW JORDAN SPARKS.

AND SHE IS A VERY AMAZING

STORY BECAUSE SHE WON

"AMERICAN IDOL" AT 17, AND

SHE BECAME A HUGE SUCCESS.

BUT SHE DRIFTED FROM HER

FAITH.

SHE WAS RAISED IN THE

CHURCH AND LOVED THE LORD

AS A YOUNG GIRL.

SHE DRIFTEDED BUT SH DRIFTED BUT SHE CAME

BACK TO CHRIST ABOUT A

YEAR AGO.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

I HAVE NO SECRET PLANS.

AND IF I DID, EFREM, YOU'D

BE THE FIRST TO KNOW.

Efrem: CHECK OUT THE

STORY ONLINE AT

Efrem: NEW AT THE BOX

OFFICE THIS WEEK, MEGAN

LEVY.

HOW DOES IT MEASURE UP FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS?

HERE IS "PLUGGED IN."

YOU DON'T REALLY

CONNECT WITH PEOPLE VERY

MUCH.

Reporter: IN THE

MOVIE, THE FEMALE HERO

DOESN'T REALLY START OUT

AS MUCH OF A GREAT PERSON

AT ALL.

IN FACT, HER LIFE IS

PRETTY TROUBLED.

SO SHE DECIDES TO SHAKE

THINGS UP BY JOINING THE

MARINES.

HANG UP THAT PHONE!

Reporter: BUT EVEN

AFTER THAT LIFE-CHANGING

CHOICE, HER DAY TO DAY IS

STILL PRETTY PROBLEMATIC

TO BE SURE.

WHY DID YOU JOIN?

TO GET AWAY FROM MY

LIFE.

Reporter: WHILE BEING

DISCIPLINED AND ASSIGNED

THE JOB OF CLEANING OUT

THE KENNELS OF A MARINE

CANINE UNIT, SHE HITS ON A

TURNING POINT.

SHE DECIDES SHE WANTS TO

TRAIN TO BECOME A HANDLER

FOR ONE OF THESE

BOMB-SNIFFING PUPS.

AND SHE IS PAIRED WITH A

DOG NAMED REX, WHO HAS

SOME DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS

OF HIS OWN.

YOU'RE GETTING A DOG.

YOU GOT THIS?

YEAH, I'VE GOT THIS.

YOU THINK I'M AFRAID OF

YOU?

LAY DOWN.

REX, LAY DOWN.

Reporter: SEPARATELY,

THESE TWO AREN'T MUCH TO

BARK ABOUT, BUT TOGETHER

THEY JUST MIGHT BECOME

HEROS.

YOU CAN'T LET YOUR

WHOLE LIFE FALL APART OVER

SOME DOG.

THAT DOG SAVED MY LIFE.

*

Reporter: THIS IS AN

INSPIRING STORY THAT TALKS

ABOUT FINDING SOMETHING IN

YOUR WORLD TO LIVE AND

FIGHT FOR.

IT SHOWS US HOW THE REAL

WORLD MEGHAN AND HER DOG

REX AND THE MARINES IN

GENERAL ARE WILLING TO

GIVE THEIR ALL TO SERVE

THEIR NATION.

THIS IS ALSO A WAR MOVIE.

IT DEPICTS JARRING

VIOLENCE AND QUITE A BIT

OF FOUL LANGUAGE ON THE

BATTLEFIELD.

SO I'M GIVING IT TWO AND A

HALF DETONATED I.E.D.s

OUT OF FIVE FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

BE SURE TO VISIT US AT

"PLUGGED IN".COM.

I'M BOB WALLASHEFSKI FOR
