On CBN Newswatch, June 26: Clock ticking down on health care overhaul: Can GOP seal the deal?, Amusement park turned upside down with praise as KingsFest comes to town, and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US FOR

CBN NEWSWATCH. I'M EFREM

GRAHAM.

CAN REPUBLICANS COME

TOGETHER TO

REPEAL OBAMACARE.

THAT'S THE BIG DEAL ON THE

CAPITOL

THIS WEEK.

IT WILL BE A NAIL BITER.

NOT ALL OF THEM ARE ON BOARD

AND

DEMOCRATS ARE PROMISING A

FIGHT. WE

HAVE THIS STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

THE BATTLE OVER

HEALTHCARE IS DOWN

TO THE WIRE.

OBAMACARE IS A DIRECT

ATTACK ON

THE MIDDLE CLASS.

THE WHITE HOUSE HOPE TO

CLOSE TO

DEAL ON THE PLAN TO REPEAL

AND

REPLACE OBAMACARE.

I DON'T THINK THEY ARE

THAT FAR.

IT'S THE FAMOUS LAST WORDS.

IT DOESN'T GO FAR ENOUGH.

I HAVE BEEN IN MEDICINE

20 YEARS.

PREMIUMS HAVE NOT GONE DOWN.

THEY ARE

NOT GOING DOWN WITH THE

REPUBLICAN

BILL.

THEY WORRY IT WOULD HURT

PEOPLE

WITH CHRONIC ILLNESSES.

WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

THE

MEDICAID CAN CUTS -- ON THE

MOST

VULNERABLE CITIZENS.

IT ALLOWS FLEXIBILITY

WITH THE

MOST DOLLARS BECAUSE THEY

ARE IN THE

MOST NEED.

MANY OF THEM SAY THEY

NEED MORE

TIME TO LOOK IT OVER.

SOME SAY THEY WILL SUPPORT

IT IF

CHANGES ARE MADE.

WHILE MOST OF THE FOCUS IS

ON CAPITOL

HILL. THE SUPREME COURT ALSO

WRAPS UP

SESSION THIS WEEK.

THE JUSTICES ARE EXPECTED TO

ISSUE A

DECISION ON ENFORCING A 90

DAY BAN ON

SOME COUNTRIES AS THE LOWER

COURTS

SHOUT DOWN THE BAN THIS YEAR.

THEY CAN LIFT THE COURT

ORDER AND

LET THE TRAVEL BAN IN EFFECT.

OR NOT TO TAKE THE CASE AT

ALL AND

THAT'S ESSENTIALLY THE DEATH

OF THE

TRAVEL BAN.

THIS COULD BE A DECISION

ON NEXT

TERM.

SPECULATION IS SWIRLING

THAT

KENNEDY COULD ANNOUNCE HIS

RETIREMENT.

IF HE DOES RETIRE, IT COULD

ALLOW

AFFIRMATIVES TO TAKE CONTROL.

FOR NOW, THE CONCERN IS

PASSING THE

HEALTHCARE BILL.

HEALTHCARE IS A VERY VERY

DIFFICULT THING TO GET BUT

WE THINK

WE ARE GOING TO GET IT.

WE DON'T HAVE TOO MUCH

ALTERNATIVE

BECAUSE WE HAVE THE DEAD

CAUCUS OF

OBAMACARE.

THE GOP PLAN IS TO GET

THE ECONOMY

MOVING AGAIN.

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: FOR THE FIRST TIME

IN TWO

DECADES THE RAMADAN WILL BE

CANCELED

AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

PRESIDENT TRUMP GAVE HIS

BEST WISHES

TO THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY.

> WHEN THE NEXT WAR COMES,

WHAT

WILL WEAPONS LOOK LIKE?

FUTURE

DRONES ARE ONLY THE

BEGINNING WITH

ROBOTS RUNNING ON ARTIFICIAL

INTELLIGENCE. WE TAKE A LOOK

AT THE

DEPARTMENT'S DESIGN TO KEEP

OUR

COUNTRY STRONGER AND SAFER.

IT MAY LOOK LIKE

SOMETHING OUT OF

STAR WARS. BUT EVEN R2-D2

COULDN'T

HOLD ON THIS GUY.

IT'S AN ADVANCED ROBOT WITH

PRECISION

AND LET'S THE ROBOT THINK ON

ITS OWN.

THE NEXT GENERATION WE'LL

HAVE

MORE AUTONOMOUS CAPABILITIES

WITH A

MAP OR VIDEO SCREEN AND

ALLOW US TO

DRAW TO THAT POINT.

THIS WILL ALLOW TO KEEP

AN EYE ON

THE ENEMY.

CURRENTLY THE DEPARTMENT

OF

DEFENSE HAS MANY LABS IN 22

STATES TO

KEEP A FIGHTING EDGE AND

KEEPING ALL

AMERICANS SAFE.

(16) 017-0180.

WOW.

IT SUPER IMPOSES A

GENERATED IMAGE

OF A REAL WORLD ALLOWING THE

GUNNER

ON THE SHIP TO SEE WHEN

SOMEONE IS

FIRING.

HE CAN SEE THE COMMAND

COMING FROM

FAR AWAY.

ANY POTENTIAL ENEMY

FIRING

POSITION UP IN THAT MAP, I

SEE A

DISPLAY HERE.

GROUND FORCES CAN USE DAY

AND

NIGHTTIME VISION.

IF A SOLDIER DOESN'T WANT TO

EXPOSE A

PART OF THE BODY.

I CAN POINT HERE AND I

CAN FIRE MY

WEAPON BECAUSE THAT WIRELESS

CONNECTIVITY WITH THIS

DEVICE.

ANOTHER POTENTIAL IDEA,

LOW COST

DISPOSABLE AIRCRAFT USING A

3D

PRINTER.

PLANES CAN BE DESIGNED FOR

SPECIAL

MISSIONS SUCH AS WEAPONS AND

FINDING

TARGETED.

THE LIFE EXPECTANCY IS A LOT

SHORTER

THAN THE REAL THING AND FOR

A

PRACTICAL COST.

> SEE HOW THE CHRISTIAN

ATHLETE IS

MAKING NEW STRIDES IN

BASEBALL.

THAT STORY IS NEXT.

THAT STORY IS NEXT.

Efrem: THEY SAY IF YOU

WANT TO

DELIVER A MESSAGE, TAKE IT

DIRECTLY

TO THE PEOPLE AND THAT'S

WHEN THEY

DID WHEN A DOZEN CHRISTIANS

TOOK TO A

POPULAR PARK TO YOUNG

PEOPLE.

NOTHING QUITE SAYS SUMMER

LIKE A

TRIP TO THE AMUSEMENT PARK.

A GAME OF

ROLLER COASTERS AND FOOD.

WHAT MORE

COULD YOU ASK FOR. DOZENS OF

YOUTH

SHOUTING AT THEIR HANDS IN

THE AIR IS

AN AMUSEMENT PARK.

BUT FOR A FEW DAYS OF THE

YEAR IT'S

FOR THE LORD.

WITH CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIANS

MUSICIANS IN VIRGINIA FOR A

DAY OF

CELEBRATION.

IT'S MEANT TO DEVELOP

RELATIONSHIPS AMONGST ADULTS

AND

YOUTH, AND CHILDREN THROUGH

CHRISTIAN

MUSIC TO A SECULAR

ENVIRONMENT.

THEY GATHERED FROM ACROSS

THE

COUNTRY.

HE HAS SEEN THE EVENT AND

SAYS

THERE IS NOTHING QUITE LIKE

IT.

THIS IS A 3-DAY EVENT.

WHAT MAKES IT SO SPECIAL?

A LOT OF PEOPLE COME HERE

FOR A

LOT OF BURDENS AND I'M A

PART OF

SOMETHING BIGGER THAN

MYSELF.

PEOPLE COME HERE LIKE

TOBY MACK

AND ENCOURAGES YOUNG PEOPLE

TO DO ONE

THING, SHINE.

MY MESSAGE TO THEM IS DO

IT TO THE

FULL.

DO IT UNTO THE GLORY OF GOD

BECAUSE

GOD IS THE ONE THAT IS GOING

TO

PROMOTE US.

I COULDN'T HAVE NEVER AN

ARRANGED

WORKING WITH TOBY MACK OR

BRUNO MARS.

GOD SAYS LET YOUR LIFE SHINE.

MY FAVORITE SCRIPTURE.

LET YOUR LIFE SHINE BEFORE

MAN SO

THEY MAY SEE IT AND GOD WILL

BE

GLORIFIED.

ORGANIZERS SAY IT'S MORE

ABOUT

THIS CONCERT.

THEY HAVE SEEN THIS WITH

THEIR OWN

EYES.

I HAVE SEEN THESE KIDS

COME

TOGETHER AND BOND IN A WAY

THEY HAVE

NEVER BONDED BEFORE.

THE YOUNGER ONES ARE TAKEN

BY THE

OLDER ONES AND THEIR LOVED

ONES.

IT'S BINDING GENERATIONS

FOR THE

COMMON PHRASE.

> TIM TEBOW IS MAKING

MORE STRIDES

IN BASEBALL.

HE WAS PROMOTED TO HIS CLASS

A

AFFILIATE TEAM IN ST. LUCIE.

THE METS THOUGHT IT WAS A

GOOD TIME

TO MOVE HIM UP. WAY TO GO.

TIM TEBOW.

> UP NEXT, STEVE MCQUEEN

WAS A

MOVIE STAR AND RACE CAR

DRIVER.

STILL THERE WAS ANOTHER SIDE

OF THE

KING COOL YOU NEVER HEARD.

WE HAVE THAT 1 STORY NEXT.

Efrem: NEARLY 40 YEARS

AFTER HIS

DEATH, STEVE MCQUEEN IS

STILL

REFERRED TO AS COOL. BUT

PEOPLE

REMEMBER ONE IMPORTANT

CHAPTER OF

THAT STORY. TAKE A LOOK AT

THE

HOLLYWOOD BAD BOY'S JOURNEY.

MOVIES, MOTORCYCLES AND

MODEL LIKE

STYLE PAINT A PRETTY PICTURE

OF STEVE

MCQUEEN.

BUT THE KING OF COOL

OVERCAME A LOT

TO BECOME THE HOLLYWOOD BOY

WONDER OF

THE 60s AND 70s.

HE HAD NO FATHER AND HIS

MOTHER

DIDN'T RAISE HIM.

SHE WAS A RAGING ALCOHOLIC.

I HAD THAT PART OF THE STORY

BECAUSE

MY MOTHER WAS AN ALCOHOLIC

AND I

NEVER KNEW MY FATHER.

THE HARVEST CHRISTIAN

FELLOWSHIP

CHURCH, GREG LORIE IS QUITE

THE STEVE

MCQUEEN FAN.

MAYBE I HAVE A BULLET

MUSTANG.

IT WAS CALLED BULLET.

AND HE PLAYS A DETECTIVE

NAMED FRANK

BULLOCK. HE DROVE THIS 1969

MUSTANG.

> I HAVE A REPLICA OF THAT

CAR.

STEVE MCQUEEN'S STANDARDS

TODAY

COULD BE SEEN AND SHORT BUT

AN ICON.

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO FASCINATED

WITH

HIM. ?

I DON'T KNOW.

ELVIS IS AN ICON.

THE BEATLES ARE ICONIC.

PEOPLE IN TIME BECOME ICONIC

CHARACTER.

I THINK MAYBE ONE OF THE

THINGS THAT

MAKES A PERSON AN ICON WHEN

THERE IS

THIS TIMELESSNESS ABOUT THIS.

IN OTHER WORDS WHEN NEW

GENERATIONS

CAN DISCOVER THEM.

I READ THIS IN A FASHION

MAGAZINE AND

YOU ARE BY THE WAY VERY

FASHIONABLE,

EFREM. AND THEY SAY WHO IS

THE MOST

FASHIONABLE AND IT WAS STEVE

MCQUEEN.

BEYOND HIS STYLE POINTS

AND HIS

CAR, THERE IS AN EVEN BIGGER

MCQUEEN

STORY LAURIE SPENT TIME

CHASING.

I WAS ENCOURAGED THAT HE

BECAME A

CHRISTIAN AND I BELIEVED IT

TO BE

TRUE BUT I NEVER CHECKED IT

OUT.

I HAD SEEN HIS DOCUMENTARY

LAST YEAR

WHERE HE WAS RISING FROM THE

WORST

CHILDHOOD IMAGINABLE AND

THEN HOW HE

WALKED AWAY FROM HOLLYWOOD

AND BECAME

A CHRISTIAN. I THOUGHT,

WELL, IS THIS

TRUE.

I STARTED TO GOOGLE SEARCH

AND LOOKED

AT ALL THE ARTICLES AND A

NAME POPPED

UP, LEONARD DEWITT.

AND I WONDER IF HE WAS ALIVE

STILL

AND I TRACKED HIM DOWN AND I

ASKED

HIM "ARE YOU THE LEONARD

DEWITTE?"

AND HE SAID YES.

ONE OF THE ICONS.

WHEN DID YOU FIND OUT

ABOUT BILLY

GRAHAM?

I FOUND OUT THE STORY WAS

TRUE.

THE STORY, DOCTORS

DIAGNOSED

MCQUEEN WITH CANCER.

BEFORE HE WENT TO MEXICO FOR

SURGERY,

HE MET BILLY GRAHAM AND HE

GAVE HIM A

BIBLE.

AFTER HE WAS IN RECOVERY,

HE WAS

WAITING IN THIS ROOM ALONE

IN JUAREZ,

MEXICO, AND HE DIED AND HE

WENT INTO

THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

HE WENT TO FIND STEVE AND

PULLED

THE SHEETS BACK AND HE WAS

HOLDING

THIS BIBLE. IT WAS BILLY

GRAHAM'S

BIBLE HE WAS HOLDING ONTO.

BEFORE HE DIED HE SAID MY

ONLY REGRET

IN LIFE IS WHAT JESUS CHRIST

DID FOR

ME.

I WROTE A BOOK AND STARTED

THIS

DOCUMENTARY FILM BECAUSE I

WANTED TO

WRITE THAT.

THAT WAS A STORY WORTH

TELLING.

IT'S THE TRUTH FOR PEOPLE

WATCHING US

RIGHT NOW THAT THERE IS NO

ONE BEYOND

THE REACH OF GOD. SOMEONE

MIGHT SAY,

I KNOW SOMEONE WHO WOULD

NEVER COME

TO JESUS, BUT WHAT ABOUT

STEVE

MCQUEEN? HE WAS THE KING OF

COOL.

YOU CAN FIND THIS BOOK IN

BOOK

STORES AND ONLINE.

BASED ON THAT BOOK WILL

SHOW A ONE

NIGHT EVENT ON SEPTEMBER

28TH.

YOU CAN FIND THE TRAILER AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

Efrem: A MOTHER AND SON

RECENTLY

REUNITED AFTER A SEPARATION

THAT

LASTED ALMOST 50 YEARS.

IT BEGAN DURING THE VIETNAM

WAR WHEN

THE CHILD WAS TAKEN AWAY,

BUT HIS MOM

NEVER GAVE UP HOPE OF

FINDING HIM AND

HOW AFTER YEARS OF PRAYING

FINALLY

PAID OFF.

AT 2 YEARS OLD, HE WAS

ADOPTED

FROM AN ORPHANAGE IN

VIETNAM. AFTER

BEING RAISED BY CHRISTIAN

PARENTS,

THE 47-YEAR-OLD NEVER

IMAGINED

MEETING HIS NATURAL MOTHER.

I KNEW I WAS ADOPTED AS A

NOTION

OF MY PARENTS DURING THE

WAR.

BUT I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW

LONG THIS

TRIP HAS BEEN FOR HER.

THIS AMAZING TURN AROUND

BEGAN

JUST WEEKS AFTER HE RECEIVED

AN

E-MAIL FROM A WOMAN URGING

HIM TO

GIVE HER A CALL.

HELLO?

YES, I'M RETURNING A CALL

TO THIS

NUMBER?

I AM LOOKING FOR MY SON.

I HAVE

BEEN LOOKING FOR HIM FOR A

LONG TIME,

AND I BELIEVE YOU ARE MY SON.

FAST FORWARD TO JUNE 6,

2017, WHEN

CBN NEWS DOCUMENTED THE

MOMENT WHEN

HE AND HIS MOTHER NIBLET WHO

DROVE TO

VIRGINIA BEACH FOR THE

EMOTIONAL

REUNION.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

BRINGING MY

SON TO ME. I LOVE YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I KNOW YOU KNOW WHEN MY SON

IN.

SHE BECAME PREGNANT AT 17

DURING

THE VIETNAM WAR AND SHE WAS

NOT

MARRIED.

THEY TOOK THE BABY RIGHT

AFTER I

HAD HIM AND I KNEW IT WAS A

BOY.

SHE ALSO SUFFERED

PHYSICAL ABUSE

FOR REFUSING TO GO ALONG

WITH THE

HASTILY AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE.

HE NEVER KNEW ABOUT THE

PREGNANCY.

THE TWO EVENTUALLY LOST

CONTACT.

NIBLET CAME TO THE UNITED

STATES

AFTER 21 AND NEVER STOPPED

PRAYING

THAT SHE WOULD FIND HER SON.

SHE

TURNED TO THE FAMILY DNA

JUST 2 YEARS

AGO. HE HESITATED TO LOOK,

ALTHOUGH

HE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW

ABOUT HIS

BIRTH FAMILY. FINALLY, HE

DECIDED TO

TAKE A CHANCE. AFTER DAYS OF

GOING TO

THE SAME WEBSITE WAS

NOTIFIED ABOUT A

POSSIBLE MATCH.

THEY SAID PARENT CHILD

MATCH AND I

JUST SHOOK MY HEAD AND SAID

THERE IS

A MISTAKE, THAT'S

IMPOSSIBLE.

THAT WAS THE ANSWER TO

HIS

MOTHER'S UNWAVERING PRAYERS.

I KNEW THAT WAS MY SON.

DAYS AFTER CONNECTING

WITH HIM

MOM, HE ALSO CONNECTED WITH

AN A

BROTHER AND SISTER THAT HE

THOUGHT

NEVER EXISTED.

THIS IS ALL HAPPENING.

IT'S PERFECT.

I FEEL BLESSED.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO

CALL

GRANDMA?

[ LAUGHTER ]

THEY HOPE THEIR STORY

INSPIRES

OTHERS.

KEEP CONTINUE BELIEVING.

WE HAVE TO BE FAITHFUL AS

MOM PUT

IT AND TRUSTING IN HIS

TIMING.
