THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN

NEWSWATCH.

I'M MARK MARTIN.

INVESTIGATORS REVEALED THE

AMTRAK THAT

CRASHED WAS GOING AT LEAST 80

MILES

PER HOUR.

THE MANY PEOPLE ARE THANKFUL

FOR BEING

ALIVE.

Reporter: THE TRAIN JUST

LEFT

SEATTLE WHEN IT CAREENED OFF

A BRIDGE.

OFFICIALS SAY IT WAS GOING

WAY TOO

FAST.

PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION

WAS THAT

THE TRAIN WAS TRAVELING ABOUT

80 MILES

PER HOUR IN A 30 MILES PER

HOUR TRACK.

30 CARS FLIPPED OFF THE

OVER PASS

CRASHING DIRECTLY ON THE

INTERSTATE 5

BELOW KILLING THREE PEOPLE.

THE PEOPLE

SAY THEY WERE THROWN AROUND

INSIDE THE

TRAIN LIKE RAG DOLLS. THEY

MANAGED TO

CRAWL OUT OF THE WINDOW

THANKFUL TO

WALK AWAY WITH THEIR LIVES.

THERE WAS A BODY THERE AND

HARDLY

HAD ANY CLOTHES ON. THE

CLOTHES WERE

JUST RIPPED OFF HIM AND HE

WAS

OBVIOUSLY DEAD.

THEY RAISED CONCERNS THAT

THE NEW

FASTER ROUTE WOULD LEAD TO

FATAL

ACCIDENTS.

THIS PROJECT WAS NEVER

EASY.

MEANWHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP

TWEETED

THAT THE TRAIN ACCIDENT

PROVED THAT

IT'S TIME TO DO SOMETHING

ABOUT

AMERICA'S AGING

INFRASTRUCTURE.

THE HOUSE IS EXPECTED TO

VOTE ON

THE $1.5 TRILLION TAX

LEGISLATION. THE

SENATE IS EXPECTED TO FOLLOW

WITH ITS

VOTE LATER TODAY OR TOMORROW.

REPUBLICANS ARE HOPING TO GET

SOMETHING TO PRESIDENT TRUMP

BEFORE

CHRISTMAS.

VOTES ARE LIKELY TO CLING

ALONG PARTY

LINES.

IN THE VOTE TO KEEP THE

VICE-PRESIDENT IN ISRAEL. HE

FELT IT

WAS IMPORTANT TO BE IN THE

SENATE IN

CASE THEY NEEDED A VOTE.

PENCE PLANS

TO VISIT ON THE 14.

PRESIDENT TRUMP OUTLINED

HIS PLAN

FOR PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH

MONDAY. WE

TAKE A LOOK AT THE

PRESIDENT'S

NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY

AND WHAT IT

MEANS FOR THE NATION GOING

FORWARD.

IT WAS ONE PART OF

NATIONAL

STRATEGY AND ONE PART OF

YEAR-END

REVIEW.

ON NOVEMBER 8, 2016, YOU

VOTED TO

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK TO

THE STAGE

MONDAY TO OUTLINE NATIONAL

SECURITY

GOALS AT HOME AND ABROAD.

IT'S REALLY NOTHING NEW TO

THIS

PRESIDENT ACCORDING TO

OFFICIALS. THE

COMPONENTS LAID OUT IN HIS

NATIONAL

SECURITY STRATEGY ARE THINGS

HE HAS

OUTLINED ALL ALONG IN HIS

AMERICA

FIRST INITIATIVE.

AT THE PLANNED THIS WITH

FOUR MAIN

PILARS, PROTECT THE HOMELAND,

PROMOTE

AMERICAN PROSPERITY AND

PROMOTE

AMERICAN INFLUENCE AND THAT

MEANS

CUTTING DOWN ON IMMIGRATION

AND

MIGRATION.

A NATION WITHOUT BORDERS

IS NOT A

NATION.

HE ALSO TALKED ABOUT HIS

SPECIFIC

CONNECTION.

ANY NATION THAT TRADES

AWAY ITS

PROSPERITY FOR SECURITY WILL

END UP

LOSING BOTH.

THE REGAN IDEA OF PEACE

THROUGH

STRENGTH WHICH IS A MAJOR

MILITARY

BUILDUP.

THE PLAN TOOK QUICK GRACE

FROM HOUSE

SPEAKER PAUL RYAN. HE SAYS,

IS THIS

STRATEGY PLACES THE STRENGTH

ON FACING

OUR ADVERSARIES AND WORKING

WITH OUR

ALLIES. SPECIFICALLY NORTH

KOREA AND

IRAN.

THE PLAN TO A NUCLEAR

WEAPON, I

CLAIM THE REVOLUTIONARY GOAL

AND THE

IRAN DEAL.

THAT'S SOMETHING CBN NEWS

MIDDLE

EAST BUREAU CHIEF CHRIS

MITCHELL SAYS

IS PIVOTAL TO PEACE IN THAT

REGION.

ONE OF THE THINGS TRUMP IS

GOING TO

SAY IS THIS THE INTEREST TO

NATIONAL

SECURITY LESS IRAN BE STOPPED

AND LESS

THREAT TO ISRAEL.

WHAT ABOUT RUSSIA AND THE

POWER OF

THREAT TO STATUS QUO.

THE PRESIDENT SPOKE WITH THE

RUSSIAN

LEADER TWICE IN THE LAST

WEEK. THE

SECOND CALL CAME FROM PUTIN.

THEY WERE ABLE TO

APPREHEND THESE

TERRORIST WITH NO LOSS OF

LIFE AND

THAT'S A GREAT THING. THE WAY

IT IS

SUPPOSED TO WORK.

THAT TIP TO RUSSIA IS PART

OF A

LARGER STRATEGY TO PROMOTE

COOPERATION

WHEN THERE IS A SHARED

INTEREST.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

SAYS NORTH

KOREA IS TO BLAME FOR A

COMPUTER HACK

THAT AFFECTED THOUSANDS OF

COMPUTERS

IN MAY.

HOMELAND SECURITY ADVISOR TOM

BOSSER

SAYS IT WAS 100% RESPONSIBLE.

WITH

THOUSANDS OF FILES ON

COMPUTERS AND

100 NATIONS THAT THIS POINTS

TO NORTH

KOREA AND SAYS THEY WILL BE

HELD

ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE ATTACK.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS

ALLOWED TWO

PREGNANT TEENS TO GET

ABORTIONS.

THE MINORS WERE DETAINED WHEN

THEY

ENTERED THE COUNTRY.

THAT THEY CAN'T KEEP TWO --

17-YEAR-OLDS TO A RIGHT TO

ABORTION.

WHILE THEY ARE ALLOWING THE

MINORS TO

END THEIR PREGNANCY AND

SHOULD NOT BE

SUPPORTING ABORTION SERVICES

BUT LIFE

COUNSELING.

THE UNITED STATES USED

IT'S VETO

POWER AT THE UNITED NATIONS

AFTER A

MEASURE TO DESIGN TO REVERT

DONALD

TRUMP'S DECISION ON THE

CAPITAL.

INCLUDING AMERICAN STAUNCH

ALLY.

THE UNITED KINGDOM TO SUPPORT

IT BY

EGYPT.

IT APPEARED TO BE BEFORE

THE

PALESTINIAN AND IT WILL GO TO

LIKELY

PASS BUT REALLY HAS NO EFFECT

ON THE

GROUND IF THE UNITED NATION

APPROVES

IT.

THAT THERE IS ISLAMIC

OUTRAGE IN

THE REAL WORLD.

THE MUSLIM NATION VISITED

BUT AS

VISIT MITCHELL REPORTS FROM

JERUSALEM,

THEY CAME TO CELEBRATE WITH

THE PEOPLE

DURING ONE OF THE MOST

MEANINGFUL

CELEBRATIONS OF THE YEAR.

HANUKKAH.

WE HAVE EIGHT NIGHTS

BECAUSE THEY

FOUND OIL.

ON THE FIRST NIGHT OF

HANUKKAH,

RABBI ABRAHAM COOPER MADE

HISTORY FROM

INVITING A DELEGATE FROM

BAHRAIN TO

THE CAPITAL.

I SAY IT WAS BROKEN AND

EMPHASIZE

IT WAS BROKEN AND GOT

TOGETHER AND

TRYING TO MOVE THINGS FORWARD.

HE SAYS MOVING THINGS

FORWARD MEANS

PEOPLE TALKING TO PEOPLE.

WE ARE NOT GOING TO SOLVE

THE

SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST,

BUT

BRINGING A CONTACT IS A RAY

OF LIGHT

IN A DARK PERIOD OUT THERE.

THE EFFORT IS THE

ORGANIZATION OF

THIS IN BAHRAIN.

OUR MESSAGE HERE IS A

PLACE TO

SHARE WITH THE WORLD IN A

VERY DARK

PLACE AND THOSE LIVING IN

FEAR.

HE REPORTED THE VISIT EVEN

WHEN

JOHNNY MOORE LED THE

DELEGATION TO THE

OLD CITY.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE JESUS

THAT I

LOVE AND THE WORLD THAT WE

ARE LIVING

IN AND WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF

WE ALL

STARTED TALKING TO ONE

ANOTHER AND

SHOWING THAT ACTUALLY FAITH,

IT'S NOT

THE PROBLEM, IT'S THE ANSWER.

THE VISIT FOLLOWS THE

RELEASE EARLY

THIS YEAR OF THE BAHRAIN

DECLARATION.

THE KINGDOM OF BAHRAIN

CALLS FOR

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

STILL THEY MET WITH FIERCE

CRITICISM AS THEY CALLED FOR

THEM TO

BE STONED WHILE OTHER MUSLIM

LEADERS

WANTED TO VISIT AND OTHERS

FELT ABOUT

THE FAITH AND THE RELIGION.

UNFORTUNATELY IT'S MUCH OF

THE

PROBLEM AS MUCH AS THE

SOLUTION. IF

PEOPLE FEEL THE

RESPONSIBILITY TO

TAKE BACK THE MOMENTUM.

IT'S A NEW DAY TO THE

MIDDLE EAST.

THAT YOU COULD NOT MEET

THE GOSPEL

AND HAVE MEANINGFUL

RELATIONSHIP WITH

DIALOGUE AND WITH MUSLIMS.

THAT THERE REALLY WEREN'T

MANY TO

TEACH.

THEY CONNECTED TO THEIR LIFE

AND

EXPERIENCES. I THINK THIS IS

WHAT'S

HAPPENING.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

COMING UP. HAVE YOU

NOTICED YOUR

CLOTHING ARE A LITTLE BIT

SNUG THIS

SEASON? COMING UP, SOME TIPS

TO AVOID

THAT HOLIDAY WEIGHT GAIN.

THAT HOLIDAY WEIGHT GAIN.

WELCOME BACK. YOU MAY HAVE

NOTICED

YOUR CLOTHES FITTING A BIT

TIGHTER

THAN USUAL. MOST PEOPLE DO

PACK ON THE

POUNDS AT CHRISTMASTIME.

LORI JOHNSON SHOWS US HOW TOO

COMMON

THE PEOPLE AND WEIGHT GAIN.

PEOPLE GAIN ABOUT 2 POUNDS

UNTIL

NEW YEAR'S.

THAT DIET DOESN'T ALWAYS

HAPPEN. WE

ARE SHOWN HOW TO START

STRATEGIES.

YOU CAN CHOOSE HEALTHY

FOODS LIKE

ENJOY LEAN CHOICES OF MEAT

LIKE TURKEY

AND HAM.

ALWAYS CHOOSE SMALLER

PORTIONS, EAT

SLOWLY AND NO SECONDS.

THE BEST WAY TO AVOID OVER

DOING IT

AT YOUR HOLIDAY GATHERINGS IS

TO EAT

SOMETHING BEFORE LIKE HANDFUL

OF NUTS

ON A SALAD.

DRINK WATER BEFORE EVENTS.

CAUTIOUS ON THE HIGH SUGAR

AND

EGGNOG. AND 1.5 OUNCE OF WINE

HAS 120

CALORIES. IF YOU HAVE TWO OR

THREE OF

THOSE THROUGHOUT THE EVENING,

YOUR

CALORIES ADD UP QUICKLY.

MAKE TIME FOR EXERCISE. IT

NOT ONLY

BURNS CALORIES BUT MINIMIZE

THE

STRESSORS.

IT'S HARD NOT TO EAT WHEN

PEOPLE

SAY, C'MON, I MADE THIS JUST

FOR YOU.

TRY TO PREPARE YOURSELF

WHAT

HEALTHY, NO THANK YOU. I'M

FULL.

AND JUST BE POLITE WHICH IS

GREAT FOR

THE OVER BEARING.

PLUS CHECK YOUR WEIGHT

REGULARLY.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

LET'S BEGIN WITH THE IDEA

OF A

DESIGNER.

YOU STARTED WHEN?

I STARTED IN JANUARY 2017.

AND HERE WE ARE AT THE END

OF THE

YEAR AND YOU HAVE TV SHOWS.

WHAT HAPPENED?

I WAS TRAVELING WHAT

FRIEND AND

COMING BACK FROM CALIFORNIA

AND WHILE

I WAS SLEEPING FROM

EXHAUSTION OF

TRAVELING I BEGAN TO DREAM

ABOUT THESE

GARMENTS IN MY SLEEP. I SAT

UP AND

TOLD MY FRIEND, I JUST SAW

THESE

GARMENTS IN MY SLEEP.

SO I SAW THE COLORS AND

EVERYTHING,

THE DETAILS. I SAT UP AND

TOLD HIM, I

SEE THESE GARMENTS AND I

DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

HE SAID DRAW THEM OUT. SO AT

THAT TIME

I HAVE MY iPHONE. I DON'T

KNOW HOW TO

DRAW SO I BEGAN TO DO THIS ON

MY PHONE

AND BY THE END OF MY

DESTINATION I HAD

IT FULL AND COMPLETE.

REALLY? IN JUST A MATTER

OF HOURS.

YES, IN A MATTER OF HOURS.

GOD GAVE YOU THE GIFT.

YES, GOD GAVE ME THE

VISION AND I

BELIEVE THAT COMES FROM HIM,

THE

CREATIVITY AND THAT WAS THE

CREATIVITY

THAT HE GAVE ME.

THOSE WERE YOUR DREAMS.

SINGING IS MY FIRST LOVE.

I HAVE BEEN SINGING SINCE I

WAS 2.

I THOUGHT MY FIRST MAJOR

THING WOULD

BE MUSIC.

WHAT DO YOU WANT PEOPLE TO

KNOW

ABOUT THIS FIRST LINE.

YOUR DESIGN NAME IS GA SHEIK?

YES, GA SHEIK STARTED OUT

AS MY

STYLING COMPANY IN 2016. SO I

WANTED A

NAME SAME, SO GA IS AN

ABBREVIATION

FOR GREGORY. I THOUGHT BY

CHANCE BY

SELECTING G-E SHEIK AND WHEN

GE IN

CHINESE MEANS STYLE.

BEFORE I KNEW THE

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE

NAME, GOD GAVE ME THIS NAME

AND IT WAS

THE ENTIRE CLOTHING BRAND.

WOW.

THE COLORS IN THIS FIRST LINE

OF

TAPESTRY ALL CAME FROM GOD

AND HE TOLD

YOU THE NAME OF TAPESTRY?

YES.

WHY?

TAPESTRY SPEAKS TO MY LIFE.

ROMANCE 8:28 TELLS US WHAT WE

SEE A

TRAUMATIC AND PAINFUL.

MUCH LIKE A TAPESTRY, YOU

LOOK AT THE

COLORS AND VARIOUS SIZES AND

SHAPES

AND YOU FLIP IT ON THE OTHER

SIDE AND

THERE IS THIS COMPLETE

HOLISTIC

PICTURE.

THAT'S WHAT GOD DID WITH MY

LIFE. GOD

SPEAKS TO MY LIFE MORE THAN

THE LINE.

THE LINE IS THE BUY PRODUCT

OF WHAT I

AM NOW AND HOW GOD HAS TAKEN

EVERYTHING AND WOVEN IT

TOGETHER TO

BRING IT TO ITS PLACE. ON THE

BACK YOU

SEE SINGER, WRITER AND

FASHION

DESIGNER AND YOU FLIP IT OVER

AND IT'S

THIS ONE PIECE, THE LIFE OF

GREGORY

FORTNER.

TELL ME ABOUT THE FIRST

PIECE IN

YOUR LIFE?

THE VERY FIRST PIECE IS

THE SHADOW.

THE SIDE IS TRANSPARENT SIDE

AND THE

AESTHETIC OF GA SHEIK IS YOU

HAVE THE

STRONGER LOOK AT THE COLUMNS

AND

CRYSTALS AND STONES.

TOUCHES HERE AND THERE

BLENDING THE

STYLES BECAUSE MEN APPRECIATE

THE

SOPHISTICATION.

MEN APPRECIATE OPULENCE AND

THAT IS

WHAT GA SHEIK IS ABOUT.

THIS IS GA SHE --

I CREATED.

THE

PRODUCT AND WHERE TO BUY GA

SHEIK?
