Efrem: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US FOR

CBN NEWSWATCH.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

THREE MEMBERS OF

PRESIDENT TRUMP

FACING INNER CIRCLES OF

QUESTION IN

CAPITOL HILL.

AHEAD OF THESE MEETINGS

THERE ARE NEW

QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER THE

PRESIDENT

IS LOOKING INTO HIS ABILITY

TO PARDON

ANYONE EVEN HIMSELF. CBN'S

JENNIFER

REPORTS FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: AS A RUSSIAN

INVESTIGATION PICKS UP

STEAM, THERE

ARE QUESTIONS ABOUT

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

ABILITY TO PARDON.

OVER THE YEAR THE PRESIDENT

HAS THE

COMPLETE POWER TO PARDON.

THERE IS SOME DEBATE ABOUT

THIS, BUT

REGARDLESS THE PRESIDENT'S

LEGAL TEAM

SAY THIS IS NOT SOMETHING

THEY ARE

LOOK INTO.

WE ARE REACHING FOR THE

ISSUE

BECAUSE PARDON IS NOT ON THE

TABLE

AND NOTHING TO PARDON FROM.

THAT'S WHEN HE SAYS

ANYONE WHO

THINKS OF PARDONING IS WHY

ANYONE

LEAKS US.

THEY WILL START TO CRACK

DOWN ON

THAT LEAK.

ANYBODY ON THAT STEAM CAN

STAY AS

LONG AS THEY FOLLOW ON THE

PROTOCOL

OF LEAKING. IT'S

UNPROFESSIONAL. YOU

ARE ASKING ME WHAT THE FIRST

STEPS

ARE, THIS IS ONE OF MY FIRST

STEPS.

THIS IS ONE OF THE ROUNDS

OF THE

SHOW.

HIS HIRING WAS AS THE LAST

SHOW FAKE

NATION THAT'S DOWN.

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT

HEALTHCARE AND

EDUCATION, ACT REFORM.

THE CONTRACT IN WHAT THE

MEDIA IS

CONCENTRATING AND WHAT THE

PUBLIC IS

INTERESTED IN.

THE TOP THREE ISSUES THAT

AMERICANS CARE ABOUT IS

HEALTHCARE

AND JOBS.

THE TOP THREE ISSUES

OTHERS CARE

ABOUT IS RUSSIA, RUSSIA,

RUSSIA.

THAT IT'S NOT JUST RUSSIA

BUT

HEALTHCARE AND TAX REFORMS,

THINGS

THAT AMERICANS REALLY CARE

ABOUT.

Efrem: THE REPUBLICANS

PLAN TO MOVE

FORWARD ON THE HEALTHCARE

PLAN.

THEY DON'T SAY WHETHER THEY

WILL

REPLACE THE AFFORDABLE CARE

ACT OR

REPEAL.

IT THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE A

DECISION

ON WHICH TO REVOKE. THEY

WILL VOTE ON

A LAW BECAUSE THEY CAN'T

REACH AN

AGREEMENT ON BOTH. THIS VOTE

IS

SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY.

THE U.S.S JERALD R FORD

WHERE

PRESIDENT THANKS THOSE WHO

BUILT IT

AND THOSE CALLED HOME.

I HEREBY PLACE UNITED

STATES SHIP

JERALD R FORD IN COMMISSION.

WITH THAT, THE NAVY GOT

ITS FIRST

NEW CLASS OF CARRIERS.

AMERICA MIGHT IS SECOND

TO NONE

AND WE ARE GETTING BIGGER

AND BETTER

AND STRONGER EVERYDAY OF MY

ADMINISTRATION.

STANDING ON THE DECK,

PRESIDENT

DONALD TRUMP SECURED THIS

DEAL.

THAT'S WHY WE WILL SECURE

$20

BILLION ON THIS DEAL. AND I

CONGRESS

FOR ANOTHER $54 BILLION NEXT

YEAR.

THAT IS ACCORDING TO THE

PRESIDENT

IF THE CONGRESS PASSES THIS

BILL NEXT

MONTH.

AT A COST OF $12.9 BILLION.

IT'S THE MOST THAT'S BEEN

SPENT ON A

SHIP EVER BEEN BUILT.

IT'S NAMED AFTER A TRIED

AND TRUE

MEMBER OF THE GREATEST

GENERATION AND

THAT SPIRIT WILL PERMEATE

THIS SHIP.

YOU DON'T GET AN IDEA OF

HOW LARGE

THIS SHIP IS UNTIL YOU STAND

ON THE

DECK.

IT'S MORE THAN 3 1/2

FOOTBALL FIELDS

WITH REACTORS THAT PRODUCE 3

TONS OF

MEGA WATT ELECTRICITY.

AND POWER AND ANTIMISSILE

GUNS AROUND

THE SHIP THAT CAN PUMP MORE

THAN

1,000 ROUNDS AND IT'S THE

MOST

EFFICIENT AND FASTERS

CARRIER AROUND.

TOP SPEED, 30 PLUS KNOTS

WHICH IS

AROUND 35 MILES PER HOUR.

COUNTING THE CREW AND THE

WING

SUPPORT, SOME 3500 SAILORS

WILL CALL

THEIR HOME.

OFFICERS OF THE UNITED

STATES

JERALD R FORD MAN OUR SHIP

AND BRING

HER TO LIFE.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

FOR THE SHIP'S SPONSORS,

THE

DAUGHTER OF THE 38TH

PRESIDENT IT WAS

A DAY FILLED WITH EXCITEMENT.

ONE THING FOR SURE WITH

THIS SHIP

AND AS YOU HEARD PRESIDENT

TRUMP WITH

MANY MORE TO COME TO PROVIDE

THE

NAVAL WARFARE.

Efrem: US ON BOARD IS

MEETING WITH

ISRAEL.

THE CONFLICT SHOWS LITTLE

SIGNS OF

DYING DOWN.

AFTER A DAY OF RIOTING ON

FRIDAY,

THREE BRUTAL MURDERS FRIDAY

NIGHT AND

A TERROR ATTACK AT THE

ISRAELI

EMBASSY AND THE CONFLICT AT

THE

TEMPLE MOUNT BEGINS.

53 YEARS AGO THEY CAME

FROM MORE

THAN 2,000 YEARS. ON JULY

14, THREE

ISRAELI ARABS CAME TO THE

TEMPLE

MOUNT AND KILLED TWO PEOPLE

AND TO

PREVENT THIS, THEY BUILT A

FENCE ON

THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

THIS IS A PRACTICE ALL

AROUND THE

WORLD EVEN MECCA.

THEY PROTESTED IT AND CALLED

FOR

OFFICIALS.

HISTORICALLY THE

PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY HAS USED ANY

ISRAELI

ACTIVITY FROM THE MOSQUE TO

PROMOTE

VIOLENCE. THEY DID THIS IN

2000.

HE SAYS THE PALESTINIAN

OBJECTION

TO THE METAL DETECTERS ISN'T

ABOUT

SECURITY.

THE METAL DETECTERS ARE

AN ISSUE

OF WHO IS THE PERSON IN

CHARGE OF THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, AND THE

PALESTINIANS

ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT THAT

ISRAEL IS

IN CHARGE OF THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

THEY CHANTED WITH SPIRIT

AND BLOOD

WE WILL EXCEED.

OMARALABED SAID WE ARE

SLEEPING

AND IT IS EMBARRASSING THAT

WE SIT

AND DO NOTHING. ALL I HAVE

IS A

SHARPEN NIGHT.

HE ENTERED THE HOME IN THE

JEWISH

COMMUNITY AND KILLED HIM AND

HIS TWO

GROWN CHILDREN.

NO EVENTS OF ANY SORT IN

ANY OTHER

PLACE IS A JUSTIFICATION FOR

MURDERING THREE PEOPLE, A

FATHER AND

TWO CHILDREN IN THEIR HOME

WHILE

THEY WERE CELEBRATING THE

BIRTH OF A

NEW GRANDSON. THERE IS NO

DIFFERENCE

FROM A TERRORIST FROM ANYONE

TRYING

TO KILL ME ANYWHERE IN THE

WORLD.

THE 1 DAY AFTER THE

LEADERSHIP

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY CALLS

FOR AN

ESCALATION IN ACTIVITIES

WHICH THE

PALESTINIAN UNDERSTAND IS

VIOLENCE.

AND A MURDER AND HOLDING THE

PALESTINIAN LEADERSHIP

DIRECTLY

RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE

MURDERS AND ANY

SUBSEQUENT TERRORISM THAT WE

HAVE

BECAUSE THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY

POPULATION GET THIS

INFORMATION.

AS THEY ANNOUNCED THE

TEMPLE MOUNT

IS IN OUR HANDS.

MANY BELIEVE THE ISSUE OF

THE

TEMPLE MOUNT REMAIN THE MOST

CONTENTIOUS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

> REPLIES OFFICIALS IN

KABUL SAY A

SUICIDE BOMBER RAMMED HIS

CAR INTO A

BUS. THE PRESIDENT CONDEMNED

THE

BOMBING AND SAYS IT

CONTINUES TO

ATTACK PEOPLE.

> WHAT'S BEING DONE TO

FIGHT

AMERICA'S EPIDEMIC OF OPIOID

ADDICTION.

YOU ARE GOING TO FIND OUT

AFTER THIS.

Efrem: AN ESTIMATED 91

PEOPLE DIE

EVERYDAY IN AMERICA FROM

OPIOID

OVERDOSES, ALTHOUGH THE

NUMBER IS

PROBABLY MUCH HIGHER.

THIS IS A DRUG THAT INCLUDES

HEROIN

AND IT'S CHEMICAL COUSIN OF

PAIN

KILLERS. THIS IS ESPECIALLY

BAD IN

THE HEARTLAND OF THE STATE

OF OHIO

WHICH HAS 11% OF THE

NATION'S HEROIN

DEATH.

OHIO POLICE DISCOVER A

FOUR-YEAR-OLD WITH HIS

GRANDMOTHER

AND BOYFRIEND BOTH OVERDOSED

ON

HEROIN.

IT SEEMS FAR TOO COMMON

THESE DAYS

ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA'S

RURAL AREAS.

HEROIN IS TRANSFORMING SMALL

TOWNS

ACROSS THE BUCKEYE STATE.

FOR EXAMPLE HERE IN MARION,

ONE OF

THE HARDEST HIT AREAS,

POLICE RESPOND

TO 12 AREA OVERDOSES IN JUST

3 DAYS.

NOT HAD A HEROIN ADDICTION

SINCE 5

YEARS.

I HAD TO DO ANYTHING I

HAD TO DO

TO GET THE DRUGS AND START

SELLING

DRUGS.

THE ADDICTION STARTED

WITH

PRESCRIPTION PAIN KILLERS.

IT'S ALMOST THE SAME

THING BUT

HEROIN IS STRONGER AND

CHEAPER AND

MORE AVAILABLE WHICH IS THE

SCARIEST

PART.

THE DRUG NO LONGER COMES

FROM FAR

AWAY PLACES AS AFGHANISTAN.

NOW THEY ARE ABLE TO

BRING IT TO

THE STATES.

NOW THIS LEADS TO A

DEADLIER

CONCOCTION AS FETANYL.

THEY ARE GOING TO CHURCH

PROGRAMS

TO HELP.

THE PROGRAMS THAT WORK

MANY TIMES

HAS A FAITH BASE COMPONENT

PART TO IT.

MAX CAN VOUCH FOR THAT.

AFTER A FAILED ATTEMPT, THE

CHRISTIAN

TREATMENT CENTER FINALLY

MADE A

DIFFERENCE.

THERE IS NO OTHER ANSWER.

HE NOW WORKS WITH

CHRISTIAN

PASTORS ACROSS OHIO TO

ENSURE EACH

STATE HAS A SPECIALIST.

THERE IS SOMEONE IN EACH

STATE

AFFECTED BY THIS, I

GUARANTEE IT.

THEIR CLAMPING DOWN WHERE

HEROIN

ADDICTION STARTS WHICH IS IN

THE

DOCTORS OFFICE. NOW DOCTORS

ARE ONLY

ALLOWED TO PRESCRIBE 1 WEEK

OF PAIN

RELIEF OR ELSE THEY FACE A

FINE.

WE HAVE A NUMBER OF

PHARMACEUTICALS PUSHING

THOSE OUT AND

TELLING THE DOCTORS THESE

ARE NOT

VERY ADDICTING.

IT TURNS OUT THEY ARE VERY

ADDICTING.

DOCTORS CAN STILL

PRESCRIBE PAIN

KILLERS FOR PEOPLE WITH

CHRONIC OR

LONG-TERM PAIN, BUT IS THAT

REALLY

THE TREATMENT.

THE DOCTOR AT OHIO MEDICAL

STATE

CENTER SAYS THEY CAN CAUSE

MEMORY

LOSS AND CONSTIPATION.

THESE MEDICATION ARE NOT

EFFECTIVE

IF YOU TAKE THEM LONG-TERM

AND IT

DEPLETES THE BODY OF ITS

INTERNAL

SYSTEM.

DOCTORS SAY SURGERY AND

WEIGHT

LOSS AND AN ANTIINFLAMMATORY

DIET LOW

IN SUGAR.

STILL, PAIN PILLS ARE STILL

EXTREMELY

COMMON FOR PEOPLE IN

CONSTANT PAIN.

IT WAS CONSTANT ALL THE

TIME. I

NEVER HAD ANYTIME WITHOUT

PAIN.

DESPITE HER BACK PAIN,

SHE REFUSED

TO TAKE OPIOIDS.

IT'S TOO EASY TO GET

HOOKED ON

THIS AND I KNOW THAT IT

DESTROYS YOUR

LIFE.

THE DOCTORS INSTALLED A

SMALL

ELECTRODE IN HERE SPINAL

CORD

BLOCKING THE PAIN I MPULSE.

THIS IS FOR SOMEONE WHO

HAS HAD

BACK PAIN BEFORE AND TAKING

A

SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF PAIN

MEDICATIONS.

MOST PEOPLE EXPERIENCE

SOME

RELIEF, ABOUT A THIRD PAIN

FREE.

IT'S BEEN NIGHT AND DAY.

IT'S BEEN WONDERFUL. I DON'T

EVEN

REALLY NOTICE THAT I HAVE IT

IN.

YOU GET USED TO THE FEELING.

WHO ILL THE HEROIN CRISIS

RAGES,

PEOPLE ARE FIGHTING BACK

WITH

AWARENESS, CHRIST CENTERED

TREATMENT

AND MINIMIZING PAIN PILLS.

LORI

JOHNSON.

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: HE'S A FRONT MAN

FOR

ADRENALIN AND HELPING IN

HAITI.

WE SIT DOWN WITH ADAM AGEEY

IN STUDIO

5.

Efrem: AUDIO ADRENALIN'S

FRONT MAN

ADAM AGEE MAKES MUSIC AND

NOW LOOKING

FOR NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN

HAITI.

I SPOKE TO HIM IN STUDIO 5

AND THIS

WEEK HE'S ONE TO WATCH. *

I CAN GO FROM BEING IN

THE

AUDIENCE WATCHING TO BEING

ON STAGE

SINGING.

I HAD A BAND FOR MANY

YEARS AND

WAS FRIENDS WITH SOME AUDIO

GUYS AND

WELL DOCUMENTED FOR STEALING

MANY OF

MARK'S MOVES AND WHEN WE

STARTED TO

RAISE FUNDS FOR HAITI, AND

THINKING

ABOUT JOINING THE BAND AND I

SAID,

WOW, CAN I ASK MY WIFE AND

SHE SAID

ABSOLUTELY BECAUSE OF ALL

THE

MINISTRY.

A SONG OF CREATION.

OH THE THUNDER, AND THE

SOUND.

Efrem: IT IS BEAUTIFUL THE

THINGS

THAT YOU DO.

I HAVE A REAL BIG HEART FOR

HAITI.

I HAVE BEEN THERE AT LEAST

SEVEN

TIMES. WHAT IS IT ABOUT THAT

COUNTRY

AND THE WORK THAT YOU GUYS

ARE DOING

AND WHY?

IT'S AN AMAZING PLACE. I

WILL

NEVER FORGET THE FIRST TIME

I FLEW IN.

IT'S THIS GORGEOUS CARIBBEAN

ISLAND

NATION OUT THERE.

YOU ARE IN THE CITY AND IT'S

GREAT

AND THERE IS MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE IN

THE CITY. JUST DRIVING

THROUGH AND

SEEING THE POVERTY LIKE I

HAVE NEVER

SEEN BEFORE.

IT DOESN'T EXIST HERE. THERE

IS TRASH

PILED 6 FEET HIGH IN THE

CANALS AND

JUST UNBELIEVABLE CONDITIONS.

AS WE ARE SEEING THE KIDS AS

WE ARE

DRIVING AND THE LOOKS ON

THEIR FACE

THERE IS THIS BLANK STARE OF

HOPELESSNESS.

THAT'S AND AS WE OPEN THE

GATES WE

SEE THE CHILDREN SMILING AND

JUST FROM

EAR TO EAR.

I JUST LEFT PART OF MY HEART

THERE.

ABSOLUTELY.

TELL PEOPLE WHAT HAPPENS

THERE.

WE HAVE TWO VILLAGES AND

THEN ALSO

WE HAVE A NEW PROJECT THAT

WE JUST

COMPLETED CALLED A CONDO

WHICH IS A

MISSION GATE WHERE WE

ENCOURAGE

MISSIONS TO HELP KIDS AND TO

POUR

INTO THE LOCAL ECONOMY.

WE TAKE CARE ABOUT ONE

HUNDRED ORPHAN

AND ABANDONED KIDS. THE GOAL

IS TO

KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER FIRST

AND

FOREMOST, AND IF THAT'S NOT

AN

OPTION, WE TAKE CARE OF THE

KIDS.

THAT PROGRAM HAS BEEN GOING

ON FOR 13

YEARS. THERE IS A PROGRAM

WHERE THE

KIDS GRADUATE AND WE HAVE A

PROGRAM

THAT HAS LEATHER PRODUCTS

AND

CLOTHING AND WE SELL THAT

HERE AND

THE BAND SELLS IT AND THE

MONEY GOES

BACK TO THEM.

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL AND THE

MUSIC

MAKES THAT POSSIBLE.

WE GET TO TRAVEL ALL

AROUND THE

WORLD FOR JUST HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS

OF PEOPLE. TO JUST PLAY

MUSIC WOULD

BE JUST A WASTE OF TIME. TO

BE ABLE

TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT THE

NEED IN

HAITI ESPECIALLY.

BUT OVER ALL, THERE IS SO

MANY PEOPLE

IN NEED. IT WOULD BE GREAT

TO HELP

THE WORLD.

THANKS FOR BEING HERE

WITH US.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.
