AND THANK YOU FOR JOINING FOR

CBN "NEWSWATCH," PRESIDENT TRUMP

IS ON A WORKING VACATION BECAUSE

NO ESCAPING A LONG LIST OF

CHALLENGES.

AND JUST THIS WEEK THERE WAS NEW

SANCTIONS TO NORTH KOREA, AND AT

THE SAME TIME ADMINISTRATION

LOOKING AHEAD TO AGENDA,

STRENGTHEN THE ECONOMY AND CUT

TAXES.

AND WE HAVE THE STORY NOW FROM

WASHINGTON.

Reporter: PRESIDENT TRUMP AT

HIS GOLF CLUB IN NEW JERSEY, BUT

SAYS THIS IS NO VACATION AS

ADMINISTRATION FACES CHALLENGES

BOTH ABROAD AND AT HOME.

AMONG THOSE CHALLENGES RESTORING

ORDER IN THE WEST WING, FRIDAY

CHIEF OF STAFF, KELLY WARNED

AGAINST LEAKS AND BLOOMBERG

REPORTED THAT THEY ALL WORK FOR

THE PRESIDENT AND ACT AS ONE

TEAM.

AND THERE IS WASHINGTON PROBE

WHERE THE WHITE HOUSE GOT GOOD

NEWS AND SOME CRITICAL TO

MUELLER TO LOOK WHERE TO GO, AND

ROB GOLDSTEIN SAYS THAT MUELLER

IS NOT IN A FISHING EXPEDITION.

AND TRUMP SCORED A POLICY WIN,

TO SANCTION NORTH KOREA, THE

RESOLUTION DRAFTED BY THE UNITED

STATES AND NEGOTIATED WITH NORTH

KOREA'S ALLY, CHINA.

PUNISHING THE REGIME FOR GROWING

A NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY HERE AT

HOME THE ECONOMY IS BOUNCING

BACK GROWING AT 2.6%,

IMPROVEMENT BUT STILL SHORT OF

TRUMP'S GOAL 3%.

GDP FOR THE QUARTER RELEASED

2.6%, THAT IS SO MUCH HIGHER

THAN ANTICIPATED.

AND THAT'S JUST THE BEGINNING

FOR TRUMP TO REDUCE TAX RATES TO

GET THE ECONOMY GROWING STRONGLY

AFTER YEARS OF WEAKNESS.

AND OF COURSE NEEDS CONGRESS TO

DO THIS, AFTER GETTING BACK FROM

VACATION, REPUBLICANS IN THE

HOUSE AND SENATE WILL NEED TO

SIGN A BILL.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS

FIRING BACK AT AN ARTICLE THAT

SUGGESTS THAT VICE PRESIDENT

MIKE PENCE IS PLANNING TO RUN

FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020.

FORECASTS OF A SHADOW CAMPAIGN.

AND PENCE CALLED THE ARTICLE

FAKE NEWS AND DEFENSIVE.

SPEAKING ON ABC NEWS THIS WEEK,

CONWAY DESTROY THE ARTICLE.

THAT IS COMPLETE FABRICATION

AND HIS ADVISORS HAVE PUSHED

BACK TO THE VICE PRESIDENT AND

AS AM I NOW UNEQUIVOCKABLY.

AND VICE PRESIDENT PENCE IS

ACTIVE VICE PRESIDENT.

CONWAY SAYS THAT MIKE PENCE

IS GETTING READY FOR THE 2020

ELECTION AS VICE PRESIDENT FOR

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S SECOND TERM.

THE CITY OF CHICAGO IS

ANNOUNCING A LAWSUIT SUING THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FOR VOWING

TO BLOCK FEDERAL GRANT MONEY TO

SANCTUARY CITIES, AND

REQUIREMENT FOR THEM TO REPORT

WHEN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN

CUSTODY.

AND THE CITY SAYS THEY WON'T BE

QUOTE BLACKMAILED.

AND THE MAYOR IS LESS CONCERNED

ABOUT KEEPING HIS CITY SAFE AND

SPENDING MORE TIME PROTECTING

CRIMINAL ALIENS AND PUTTING THE

LAW ENFORCEMENT AT GREATER RISK.

A KANSAS MAN IS PLEADED GUILTY

OF A BOMB.

HOME GROWN TERRORIST.

THIS MAN, 20 YEAR-OLD JOHN T.

BOOKER JR. OF TOPEKA, KANSAS

WILL SPEND 20 YEARS FOR

DETONATING A BOMB ON THE

MILITARY BASE.

EXPERTS SAY THAT HE TRIED TO

CONNECT WIRES BOMB IN A VAN AND

THANKFULLY THE FEDS HAD HIM

UNDER SURVEILLANCE.

MR. BOOKER WAS A YOUNG MAN

THAT WAS RAISED IN KANSAS AND

WENT TO SCHOOL IN KANSAS AND

SOMEHOW BECAME LOST AND

SELF-RADICALIZED IN HIS BASEMENT

WATCHING JIHADI TAPES.

BARRY GRIFFIN SAID THAT THE

INVESTIGATION BEGAN AFTER BOOKER

POSTED ON FACEBOOK TO JOIN

JIHAD.

THE NOTION THAT WE CAN BUILD

A WALL OR DENY VISAS FOR THE

PURPOSES OF KEEPING FOLKS WHO

WANT TO DO OUR CITIZENS HARM,

THAT IS GOING TO ADDRESS ANY

ISSUES IS WRONG.

OUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THE LONE

WOLF.

SAYING THAT THOSE FEEL

DISENFRANCHISED FROM SITE ARE

TARGETED BY GROUPS BY ISIS.

MANY NOT ON GOVERNMENT WATCH

LISTS BECAUSE NEVER ARRESTED.

THE FBI HAS MORE THAN 1,000

INVESTIGATIONS IN ALL 50 STATES

AND 250 PEOPLE HAVE ATTEMPTED TO

TRAVEL FROM THE U.S. TO JOIN

EXTREMIST GROUPS IN SYRIA OR

IRAQ.

AND SINCE 2014 MANY ARRESTED.

EXPERTS CALL IT HOME-GROWN

PHENOMENA IN THE TRUEST SENSE OF

THE WORLD.

THEY ARE VYING FOR OUR YOUTH

AND TO ATTRACT THEM ALONG WITH

AL-QAEDA, THERE IS A LIST.

CHRISTIE KNOWS THAT TOO WELL,

HER SON BECAME AN ISIS MILITANT

GROWING IN CALGARY, AND AT AGE

17 FEELING DISCONNECTED FROM HIS

CLASSMATES DAMION JOINED ISLAM.

AND HE HEADED TO SYRIA TO JOIN

ISIS FIGHTERS.

AT THE END OF 2013, THAT'S

WHEN OUR EQUIVALENCE OF THE FBI

SHOWED UP ON THE DOOR STEP

SAYING WATCHING HIM FOR TWO

YEARS.

AND HE DIED BY VIOLENT

EXTREMISM.

FOR BOUDREAUX, THIS HAS TAKEN

OVER MUCH OF HER LIFE AND

WARNING PARENTS THAT WHAT

CHILDREN WATCH ONLINE IS

APPROPRIATE.

COMING UP SYRIA FLOODED WITH

IRANIAN TROOPS AND FIND OUT WHAT

THAT MEANS FOR ISRAEL AND THE

WORLD, WHEN WE COME BACK.

JORDAN'S KING MADE A RARE

VISIT MONDAY TO MEET WITH

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

NETANYAHU, THE FIRST TIME IN

FIVE YEARS VISITING THE AREA,

AND AFTER TURMOIL IN THE LAST

MONTH.

JORDAN IS OVER THE CITY, AND THE

KING SAID THAT JORDAN WOULD NOT

BE A BREAK-THROUGH IN THE PEACE

PROCESS IF THE U.S. IS NOT

COMMITTED TO SUPPORTING A

SOLUTION TO THE PALESTINIAN

ISSUE.

AFTER A NINE MONTH BATTLE WITH

IRAQ, AND NOW FOCUSED ON TAKE

THE FIGHT OF ISIS IN RAQQA,

SYRIA.

AND SOME EXPERTS ARE WARNING

THAT THE FIGHT AGAINST THE

ISLAMIC STATE MIGHT BE JUST BE A

PRECLUDE TO A BATTLE.

MOST BELIEVE THAT THE VICTORY

IN MOSLEM AND RAQQA AND THE

MIDDLE EAST.

YOU HAVE SO MANY DIFFERENT

ACTORS AT THE STATE LEVEL

WORKING IN COALITIONS.

AND AGAINST ONE ANOTHER, WITH

ONE ANOTHER.

THAT THIS IS A VERY, VERY

DANGEROUS PLACE.

THIS BECOMES A TENDER BOX.

CAROLYN GLICK SAYS THAT A

WIDE RANGE OF ACTORS, INCLUDING

SYRIA, AND TURKEY AND THE KURDS

AND HEZBOLLAH AND IRAN MAKE UP

THAT MIX.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH

WEAPONS AND POWER AND OF COURSE

WAR CAUSE THE MASSIVE

INSTABILITY IN NEIGHBORING

COUNTRIES LIKE JORDAN AND ISRAEL

AND IRAQ ARE PART OF THE SAME

THEATER ARE ALMOST MIND

BOGGLING.

FROM THIS VANTAGE POINT YOU

SEE THAT INSTABILITY ACTION, A

NUMBER OF TROOPS BORDER ISRAEL.

BUT THE GROUP THAT CONCERNS

ISRAEL THE MOST ARE THE ONES

CONNECTED TO IRAN.

WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF SHIITES

THAT ARE FIGHTING IN SYRIA.

SAYING THAT THE WEST NEEDS TO

KNOW THAT THE WAR IN SYRIA

STRETCHES BEYOND ITS BORDERS.

THE WAR IN SYRIA IS WAY

BEYOND.

ACTUALLY WHAT WE SEE RIGHT NOW

IN SYRIA IS A HUGE STAGE, A HUGE

REGIONAL POWER STRUGGLE.

ROUGHLY SPEAKING BETWEEN TWO

MAJOR FORCES.

ONE ARE IRANIANS AND THEIR

MILITIAS ON ONE HAND AND THE

OTHER ARAB SUNNIS.

FIGHTING WITH THE TROOPS.

THE SYRIAN TROOPS ARE IRANIAN

AND HEZBOLLAH IS IRANIAN AND

THEY HAVE AN UNLIMITED NUMBER OF

TROOPS TO BRING IN AT WILL AND

BRINGING INTO SYRIA FROM

AFGHANISTAN AND PAKISTAN AND

IT'S A BOTTOMLESS WELL PERSONNEL

THAT IRAN CAN BRING OVER.

WARNING THAT IRAN IS TRYING

TO CREATE A LAND BRIDGE ON THE

MEDITERRANEAN, AND POSE A GREAT

DANGER TO ISRAEL.

WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT

STATE OF ISRAEL, AND TRYING TO

LAUNCH FIGHT WOULD BE MASSIVE

ERUPTION.

SAYS THAT TO UNDERSTAND THE

STATE OF THE MIDDLE EAST YOU

MUST GO BACK TO PRESIDENT OBAMA.

OBAMA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR

MAJOR PROBLEMS, AND OBAMA IS

LINED UP WITH IRANIANS AND

ENABLING THE IRANIANS TO EXPAND

THEIR INFLUENCE AND VIOLENT IN

THE REGION.

AND NOW HEZBOLLAH HAS A

THREAT TO ISRAEL.

THEY ARE IN OPEN THREAT TO

ISRAEL AND ARMAMENTS

SOPHISTICATED TO A DEGREE WE

HAVEN'T SEEN BUT MEN, MEN UNDER

ARMS AND SOLDIERS ARE

BATTLE-HARDENED WARRIORS THAT

HAVE BEEN IN THE BATTLEFIELD IN

SYRIA FOR THE LAST SIX YEARS.

BELIEVING THAT THE DANGER IS

GREATER NOW THAN WHEN THE MIDDLE

EAST GANGED UP ON ISRAEL IN 1967

SIX-DAY WAR.

WE ARE LOOKING TO REALITY

WHERE YOU HAVE DOZENS OF

THOUSANDS OF SHIITE MILITANTS IN

SYRIA AND GUIDED BY IRANIANS.

AND IRANIANS TOOK OVER HEZBOLLAH

AND ENVISION THE SAME TO SYRIA.

THAT COULD LEAD TO

COMPLICATIONS WITH GLOBAL

IMPLICATIONS.

ISRAEL IS DETERMINED NOT TO

ALLOW THE IRANIANS TO MAKE THIS

A STAGE OF WAR.

THERE ARE IMPLICATIONS OF

DEVELOPMENT THAT I AM PORTRAYING

THAT IS REALITY ON THE GROUND.

THEIR COMMUNICATIONS NOT ONLY

LOCAL, AND NOT ONLY REGIONAL BUT

EXCEEDING THE REGIONAL LEVEL BUT

COULD BE GLOBAL.

UP NEXT, THE WORKING MOM GOES

FROM FAT TO FIT IN HER 40S.

HER INSPIRING STORY AND HER

AMAZING RESULTS NEXT.

IF YOU ARE AN ADULT WHO HAS

BEEN OVER WEIGHT ALL OF YOUR

LIFE, YOU MIGHT THINK THAT

LOSING WEIGHT AND GETTING FIT

AFTER 40 IS IMPOSSIBLE.

THE WOMAN IN OUR NEXT STORIES

THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE.

SHE LOST 100 POUNDS, LORI

JOHNSON TALKS TO HER.

OVER THE HILL?

NO WAY, MARTHA VAN CAMP FEELS

BETTER NOW IN HER 40S THAN EVER

BEFORE.

SHE LOST 100 POUNDS.

THIS SIZE 20 DRESS USED TO BE

TIGHT ON HER, NOW SHE'S A SIZE

2.

I ALWAYS FELT THIS FIT BODY

STUCK IN THIS FAT GIRL'S

EXTERIOR.

THIS MARKETING DIRECTOR THAT

IS A WIFE AND MOTHER BATTLED

WEIGHT SINCE CHILDHOOD.

I REMEMBER WEARING A SIZE 12

IN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND NOT ABLE TO

SHOP IN THE SHOPS THAT OTHER

GIRLS MY AGE.

MY JUNIOR YEAR IN COLLEGE I

LITERALLY LOOKED LIKE A BALLOON

READY TO BE POPPED, I WAS SO

OVERWEIGHT.

AFTER ENDLESS ATTEMPTS TO

LOSE WEIGHT SHE GAVE UP UNTIL --

HIT 40 AND NEVER EXERCISED

AND REALIZED THAT SOMETHING HAD

TO CHANGE.

CHANGE SHE DID, AFTER

RESEARCH ON NUTRITION, SHE GAVE

UP PROCESSED FOODS, KNOWN AS

CONVENIENCED OR PACKAGED FOODS.

THESE FOODS LINE THE SHELVES OF

INTERIOR SHELVES IN THE GROCERY

STORE.

FAST AND EASY FOODS IS THE

WORKING WOMAN'S BEST FRIEND BUT

WHEN IT COMES TO WEIGHT THEY CAN

BE THE ENEMY.

PROCESSED FOODS ARE LOADED WITH

THE INGREDIENTS THAT CAN PACK ON

THE POUNDS, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN

SYRUP AND GRAINS STRIPPED OF

GOODNESS, AND CONTAIN FLAVORINGS

AND OTHER ADDITIVES THAT CAN

CAUSE WEIGHT.

IT'S A CHEMICAL STORM AND

THINGS THEY PUT IN FOOD OUR

BODIES BLOWUP.

MARTHA'S BODY SHRANK WHEN

STOPPED EATING FOODS FROM

PACKAGE AND MADE FROM SCRATCH.

TURKEY AND EGG WHITES AND PLENTY

OF VEGETABLES.

SHE REALLY NOTICED A DIFFERENCE

WHEN SHE REPLACED PROCESSED

SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES LIKE WHITE

BREAD AND PASTA WITH COMPLEX

CARBS, LIKE OATS, SWEET POTATOES

BEANS.

AND DOESN'T SKIMP ON HEALTHY

FATS EITHER, LIKE NUTS, AVOCADOS

AND COCONUT OIL.

AFTER A FEW DAYS OF EATING

THE RIGHT WAY, OH, MY GOSH, YOUR

ENERGY LEVEL IS INCREDIBLE.

MARTHA ADMITS CUT BACK ON

CALORIES, AND UNLIKE OTHERS

BEFORE, THIS ONE IS EASY TO

STICK TO, BECAUSE THESE

SATISFYING FOODS MAKE HER FEEL

FULL LONGER.

I WAS FAT BECAUSE I DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND THE SCIENCE OF FOOD.

MARTHA SAYS TO STABILIZE HER

BLOOD SUGAR THAT MINIMIZES

CRAVINGS, SHE HAS TO EAT A SMALL

MEAL EVERY THREE HOURS.

NOT SO EASY FOR A WORKING MOM.

BUT FIGURED OUT A WAY TO DO IT,

ON THE WEEKENDS COOKS UP MEALS

AND POPS IN THE FREEZER AND

BEFORE WORK GRABS WHAT SHE NEEDS

THAT DAY.

IT TAKES A COUPLE OF WEEKS TO

GET ON AUTO-PILOT BUT SO WORTH

IT.

MARTHA SAYS THAT EATING RIGHT

IS THE MAIN REASON THAT SHE LOST

WEIGHT BUT EXERCISE DOES A BIG

PART OF KEEPING HEALTHY.

I REMEMBER I COULDN'T DO

THREE SQUATS WHEN I GOT STARTED.

IN ADDITION TO CARDIO, MARTHA

BURNS CALORIES ADDING WEIGHTS.

IF YOU ARE HEAVY AND HATE

EXERCISE AND THINK YOU ARE OVER

THE HILL.

MARTHA VAN CAMP IS LIVING PROOF

TO AVOID EATING FROM THE BOX OR

DRIVE THROUGH, AND EMBRACE A

CLEAN DIET RICH IN WHOLE FOODS

CAN MAKE YOU LOSE WEIGHT AND

FEEL GREAT AT ANY AGE.

NEVER TOO OLD TO MAKE A

CHANGE.

STAY WITH US, MORE CBN

"NEWSWATCH" AFTER THIS.

ANTHONY EVANS WAS A

CONTESTANT ON NBC THE VOICE, AND

HE WAS A PREACHER'S KID AND SOME

OF THAT LATEST STORY IN HIS

LATEST SONG, SEE YOU AGAIN.

* I SEE DARKNESS SHATTERED BY

LIFE *

* I SEE JOY AFTER THE NIGHT

* I WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN

MY FIRST SINGLE IS CALLED,

SEE YOU AGAIN.

AND THE STORY BEHIND THAT STORY,

THIS IS A SONG THAT MY FRIEND

WROTE, CHRISTIE NORDOF AND WROTE

YOUR GREAT NAME AND TALKED ABOUT

THE CONCEPT OF BEING A

PREACHER'S KID AND I DON'T WANT

TO LIVE OFF MY PAST AND THE

STORY AND ISSUE OF RESOLVE FROM

WAY BACK.

AND I SAID TO HER, I NEED A

FRESH MOVE OF GOD IN MY LIFE.

AND SHE SAID, I JUST WROTE A

SONG CALLED, SEE YOU AGAIN.

AND THAT'S WHAT IT IS, I SEE YOU

HEALED, AND SEE YOU MAKE TEARS

IN THE LAUGHTER AND SEE YOU

RETURN JOY TO ME BUT I WANT TO

SEE IT AGAIN, I DON'T WANT TO

TELL THE SAME STORY.

AND THE BRIDGE IS THAT WE

BELIEVE ALL THE GREAT THINGS YOU

HAVE DONE, AND WE BELIEVE

GREATER THINGS IS TO COME.

AND THAT'S THE HEART OF SEE YOU

AGAIN IS, MY PLEA FOR THE LORD

TO DO MORE AND TO INVITE THE

AUDIENCE TO DO THE SAME.

AND WHAT HE'S FAITHFUL IN DOING

IS ALWAYS MEETING YOU THERE WHEN

YOU ASK.

MY NEW ALBUM, BACK TO LIFE, IS

BASED ON THREE THINGS.

HONESTY AND VULNERABILITY AND

TRANSPARENCY AND HOW THOSE THREE

THINGS HAVE BROUGHT ME BACK TO

LIFE.

I WAS IN A PLACE IN MY CAREER

AND MINISTRY WHERE I FELT NOT

ALIVE.

SPIRITUALLY AND EMOTIONALLY AND

JUST KIND OF -- NOT KIND OF,

DEAD.

BUT I ALSO HAVE GOT TO A PLACE

WHERE I KNEW HOW TO GET ON A

STAGE AND SAY THE RIGHT THINGS

AND SING THE RIGHT NOTES, BUT

THAT DOESN'T FEEL GOOD.

ARTIFICIAL LIFE, BUT THAT'S

STILL NOT REAL LIVING.

I LOVE HONEST LYRICS.

I AM SO OVER PRETENSE IN LIFE, I

DON'T LIKE PRETENSE, IT'S A

WASTE OF TIME.

MUSICALLY WE PUSH THE ENVELOPE

AND VOCALLY WE PUSH THE ENVELOPE

BUT CONTENT WISE I PUSH THE

ENVELOPE.

I WANT THEM TO BE MOVED.

IF I WANT TO TICKLE THEM BUT

THAT'S NOT SUCCESS, SUCCESS IS

ME BEING AT PEACE.

AFTER HAVING A HIT RECORD AND

FULL TOUR, YOU CAN'T PURCHASE

PEACE.

THIS ALBUM IS ABOUT LIFE CHANGE

THAT I EXPERIENCED AND THAT I

WOULD LOVE TO TRANSLATE INTO THE

LISTENER'S LIFE.

WITH THAT IT'S TIME NOW FOR

YOUR MONDAY MOTIVATION.

YOU ARE THE FIRST AND ONLY YOU

THAT GOD CREATED.

THERE IS NO ONE ELSE WHO CAN BE

YOU.

AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE YOU

SHOULD BE.

SO TODAY COMMIT TO BEING THE

BEST POSSIBLE YOU AND SPEND LESS

TIME COMPARING YOURSELF TO

OTHERS.

WITH THAT WORD, BE SURE TO MAKE

THIS A MARVELOUS MONDAY.

THAT WILL DO IT FOR THIS EDITION

OF CBN NEWS, AND YOU CAN WATCH

MORE AT CBNNEWS.COM.

SEE YOU TOMORROW, AND BE
