THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR

JOINING US

FOR CBN NEWSWATCH, I'M EFREM

GRAHAM.

POLICE ARE GEARING UP FOR

SECURITY IN

TIME FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE.

IT'S A BIG TARGET.

WE ARE SHOWN THE ADDED

PROTECTIONS THEY

ARE TAKING.

THE COUNT DOWN IS ON TO

2018. EVERY

YEAR NEW YORK DOES A THREAT

ASSESSMENT.

AFTER WHAT HAPPENED IN LAST

VEGAS. THIS

YEAR'S PLAN IS MORE ROBUST THAN

EVER

BEFORE.

SOME PREPARATIONS FOR 2018

ARE

BEHIND-THE-SCENES, ARE THEY

HAVE BEEN

PLANNING RELENTLESSLY

UNDERSTANDING THE

CROSS OF THE WORLD'S MAYBE WITH

BAD

INTENTIONS.

AFTER GUNMAN KILLED 58 PEOPLE

FROM THE

32ND FLOOR FROM THE LAS VEGAS

HOTEL,

THEY WILL BE QUICK TO ADJUST TO

SECURITY PLANS ON TIME SQUARE.

THEY TOLD CBN NEWS THAT FBI HAS

REVIEWED AND WILL HAVE MORE

THAN 7,000

OFFICERS INSIDE EVERY HOTEL

ALONG 7TH

AVON NEW YEAR'S EVE.

PEOPLE SHOULD BE SECURE WITH

THIS

SECURITY AFTER THE ON GOING

THREAT

WHERE THEY WERE GATHERED.

CERTAIN AREAS WILL BE CLOSED

ON NEW

YEAR'S EVE.

WHERE BACKPACKS AND BAGS WILL

NOT BE

ALLOWED.

THE CAMERA WILL ALLOW PEOPLE TO

BE

MONITORED FOR HOURS.

THEY SCOUT THE AREA AND PREPARE.

THAT'S WHERE THIS SOFTWARE WILL

HELP.

RATHER THAN WATCH, 10 HOURS,

YOU

WATCH 10 MINUTES.

YOU CAN DETECT THESE PEOPLE AND

TRY TO

CHECK WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING.

THE TECHNOLOGY WAS

INSTRUMENTAL IN

IDENTIFYING AND LEADING THE FBI

TO THE

BOSTON MARATHON BOMBERS.

EVEN THE NYPD SAYS IT'S NOT

GOING TO

REVEAL ALL OF ITS PLANS IN

ORDER TO

KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.

AT LEAST A DOZEN PEOPLE HAVE

DIED IN

WHAT'S BEING CALLED THE WORSE

FIRE IN

NEW YORK CITY IN NEARLY 30

YEARS. IT

BROKE OUT IN A 5 STORY

APARTMENT

BUILDING IN THE BRONX.

WINDS FLAMED THE FIRES. THE

YOUNGEST

VICTIM WAS JUST ONE-YEAR-OLD.

INVESTIGATORS ARE LOOKING FOR

WHAT

CAUSING THAT FIRE.

AMERICANS ARE CELEBRATING

PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE.

HE'S

KNOWN AS THE LEADER IN HISTORY.

THE POSITIVE RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN

EVANGELICALS AND THIS WHITE

HOUSE CAN

BE DIRECTLY TOWARDS PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

HERE IS ONE REASON WHY

EVANGELICALS ARE

CELEBRATING.

NEIL GORSUCH.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

THAT THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

DOES IS

APPOINT IMPORTANT PEOPLE TO THE

UNITED

STATES SUPREME COURT.

REMEMBER THIS PICTURE.

A PICTURE OF THE OVAL OFFICE OF

A DAY

LONG MEETING BETWEEN WHITE

HOUSE

OFFICIALS AND DESPITE THREATS

AND

CRITICISM, PRESIDENT TRUMP

RECOGNIZE

ISRAEL AS THE CAPITAL.

WE COULD NOT SOLVE THE

PROBLEM BY

MAKING THE SAME FAILED

ASSUMPTIONS AND

REPEATING THE SAME FAILED

STRATEGIES OF

THE PAST.

IT SEEMS BIBLICAL OF A

PROPHECY OF A

BIBLE THAT OPENED ON THE

NATIONAL MALL.

WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE SPEAKS

FOR

ITSELF.

YOU CANNOT READ THE BIBLE

WITHOUT

UNDERSTANDING THAT JESUS IS THE

WORD OF

GOD.

THE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN

OCCUPIES

THE HIGHEST POSITION IN THE

LAND.

WHEN PEOPLE GRAB US BY THE

HAND AND

SAY WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU.

WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY GOING ON

IN THE

CABINET.

WHO LEADS THE GATHERING SAYS

NOTHING

HAS HAPPENED LIKE THIS IN 100

YEARS.

BEST BIBLE STUDY I HAVE EVER

HAD.

AT THE SUPREME COURT, THE

ORDER OF

CATHOLIC NUNS AND NO LONGER

HAVE TO

SHOW BIRTH CONTROL.

STAY TUNED TO CBN NEWS. AT

THE WHITE

HOUSE, I'M JENNIFER WISHON.

Efrem: THE UNITED STATES

SENATE HAS

YET TO CONFIRM THE NAME.

BROWN BACK WILL HELP ALLOW THIS.

HE REPEALED AN ORDER

PROHIBITING

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST LGBT

WORKERS.

ONE OF FEDERAL POSITIONS WHO

HAVE NOT

BEEN CONFIRMED.

THERE ARE OVER 200 ELECTIONS.

THIS IS MORE THAN BARACK OBAMA

AND BUSH

HAD.

IT'S FAST ENOUGH TO GET THE

PEOPLE

CONFIRMED.

THE PRESIDENT WILL HAVE TO

RENOMINATE

THOSE APPOINTEES AND SEND THEM

BACK TO

CONFIRMATION IN 2018.

> AN OREGON COUPLE PUNISHED

FOR

BAKING A CAKE BECAUSE OF THEIR

BIBLICAL

VIEWS ON MARRIAGE. A STATE

AGENCY FIND

THEM $135,000 FORCING THEM TO

CLOSE

THAT BUSINESS. THE COURT OF

APPEALS

UPHELD THE AGENCY'S DECISION.

> AT LEAST TEN PEOPLE DIED IN

A

TERROR ATTACK IN EGYPT FRIDAY.

TWO GUNMEN STORMED THE CHURCH

IN SOUTH

CAIRO.

TWO OFFICERS DIED IN THE

ATTACK. EGYPT

CHRISTIAN MINORITIES HAVE BEEN

TARGETED

AND SEE HOW ONE CHRISTIAN IS

HELPING

HIS NEIGHBOR.

STAY WITH US.

STAY WITH US.

Efrem: AMERICANS ARE AMONG

THE MOST

GENEROUS PEOPLE IN THE WORLD

ACCORDING

TO THE AID FOUNDATION.

THAT MANY VOLUNTEERED AND

DONATED THEIR

TIME IN THE PAST YEAR BECAUSE

THEY

BELIEVE IN THE CAUSE NOT TO GET

ANYTHING IN RETURN.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOUR

ENEMY

NEEDED FOOD AND CLOTHES AND

MEDICAL

HELP? WOULD YOU HELP? THAT'S

WHAT

ISRAEL DECIDED TO DO IN ITS

GOOD

NEIGHBOR PROJECT.

WE TAKE A LOOK AS OUR JEWS AND

CHRISTIANS ARE WORKING TOGETHER

TO

HELP.

IT'S A CHRISTIAN MEDICAL

CLINIC

WORKING ALONG THE BORDER

PROVIDING

MEDICAL CARE TO SYRIANS CAUGHT

IN THE

MIDDLE OF THE CIVIL WAR. THERE

ARE

ABOUT 80,000 SYRIANS IN NEED OF

MEDICAL

ATTENTION. THEY ARRIVE IN A

TRUCK AND

CHECKED THROUGH SECURITY AND

COME

THROUGH TO THIS CAMP HERE WHERE

HE

RECEIVE MEDICAL ATTENTION AND

LOVE.

FROM THE TIME THEY COME

THROUGH THE

GATE, THEY BECOME THE MOST

IMPORTANT

PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. WE DON'T

SPEAK THE

LANGUAGE, BUT WE HAVE TO SPEAK

THE

LANGUAGE OF LOVE.

DON AND SONDRA, STARTED

FRIENDSHIP,

A CHRISTIAN AID ORGANIZATION

WORKING

WITH GOOD NEIGHBOR PROJECT TO

HELP THE

SYRIANS.

IT'S AMAZING TO WATCH THE

TRANSFORMATION AND THESE PEOPLE

WHEN

THEY ARE NOT UNDER THE

OPPRESSION OF

WAR.

IN THEIR FIRST 2 MONTHS,

THEY

TREATED SOME 2,000 PEOPLE.

WE ARE PUTTING IN WIFI AND

TELEMEDICINE AND WHEN THAT

COMES, WE'LL

BE ABLE TO TREAT THREE TIMES AS

MANY

AND SPEEDS UP THE PROCESS.

THIS IS WHAT THEY ARE

CHECKING FOR

AS A DOCTOR.

WE CHECKED SOMEONE WITH

HEPATITIS

TODAY AND RASHES. IF THEY ARE

NOT

TREATED THEY WILL BECOME

SERIOUS. WE

TREAT THEIR INFECTIONS AND WE

DIAGNOSE

PEOPLE THAT WE ARE NOT ABLE TO

TREAT

AND WE REFER THEM TO VARIOUS

OUTLETS

FOR FURTHER POSSIBILITIES.

WHILE INCUBATORS AND

BREATHING

MACHINES ARE UNDERWAY, THAT'S

NOT THEIR

BIGGEST NEED.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE IN

DESPERATE NEED

OF PEOPLE TO PLAY WITH THE

CHILDREN AND

DOCTORS AND NURSES.

THAT'S OUR MAIN NEED. BUT WE

NEED

PEOPLE TO COME AND HELP.

THAT'S BECAUSE THE CAMP GOES

BEYOND

MEDICAL NEEDS.

THIS IS WHAT WE CALL OUR

DISTRIBUTION TENT.

EVERYDAY, WHEN A PATIENT LEAVES

THEY

GET A BAG FULL OF GOODIES WITH

FOOD AND

CLOTHES.

WE HAVE AN AREA WHERE THEY CAN

SHOP FOR

CLOTHES THAT THEY LIKE. THEY

CAN SELECT

WHAT THEY LIKE.

THIS IS THE CHILDREN'S ROOM.

THEY

HAVE BEEN IN A WAR SINCE THEY

WERE BORN.

THEY ARE SO HAPPY.

THERE IS A TRAMPOLINE AND THEY

LOVE IT.

WE HAVE A SNOW CONE AND AN ICE

CREAM

MACHINE THAT COMES WITH IT.

THEY DECIDED TO COME TO

ISRAEL TO

HELP THE SYRIANS.

WE TRIED TO WORK THROUGH

LEBANON AND

IT WAS A DEAD-END.

WE WOUND UP IN ISRAEL.

WE HAD NO IDEA THAT WE WOULD

HAVE

SUCH A LOVING FRIEND IN ISRAEL

THAT

THEY WOULD HAVE THE SAME VISION

FOR

HELPING PEOPLE AS WE DID AS

CHRISTIANS.

WE HAVE JEWS HELPING CHRISTIANS

TO HELP

THE MUSLIMS.

AFTER NIGHTFALL, CBN NEWS

ACCOMPANIED THEM ON A MISSION

ALONG THE

SYRIAN BORDER.

WE SUITED UP AND DROVE TO AN

UNSPECIFIED LOCATION. I'M

STANDING VERY

CLOSE TO THE SYRIAN BORDERS

WHERE

ISRAEL'S GOOD NEIGHBOR PROJECT

DELIVERS

TONS OF HUMANITARIAN AID TO

SYRIANS

EVERY NIGHT.

WE HAVE THE FLOUR FOR THE

PEOPLE IN

THE BIG TRUCK. WE ARE DOING IT

EACH

DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK.

MAJOR A, OVERSEES THE ENTIRE

PROJECT

ALONG THE BORDER.

WE'VE HIDDEN HIS NAME FOR

PROTECTION.

WE DELIVER ALL THE BASIC

FOOD THINGS.

WE DELIVER THE THINGS TO THE

FENCE AND

THEY ARE COMING AND TAKING

THEM.

FIGHTING HAS KILLED ALMOST A

HALF

MILLION PEOPLE AND LEFT

THOUSANDS

HOMELESS AND WOUNDED.

SO WHY HELP?

THIS IS THE RIGHT THING TO

DO AND

THIS IS ISRAEL THE COUNTRY TO

DO THIS

AND I LOVE DOING THIS.

MORE THAN 50,000 SYRIANS

LIVE IN THE

AREA THAT BENEFIT FROM THESE

DELIVERIES. WILL THEY REMEMBER

THE

KINDNESS WHEN THE WAR IS OVER?

I REALLY DON'T KNOW, BUT I

CAN HOPE

THEY REMEMBER.

MAJOR A HAS BEEN SURPRISED

FROM THE

HELP.

THEY ARE SO GENEROUS AND SO

BRAVE

AND SO WARM AND CAN GIVE A LOT

OF LOVE

TODAY IN THE CLINIC THAT ARE

CHRISTIANS

THAT MAKE THINGS HAPPEN WITH

THE

ISRAELIS, WITH THE JEWS FOR THE

MUSLIMS.

JULIE STAHL, CBN NEWS ALONG

THE

ISRAEL BORDER.

COMING UP, WE HAVE HOST WHEN

WE

RETURN.

RETURN.

Efrem: TELEVISION JOURNALIST

BRIAN

WITH HIS LATEST BOOK EXPLORES

ANDREW

JACKSON. HE SHARES THE HISTORY

THAT YOU

CAN STILL FIND IN THE BIG EASY

TODAY.

ANY BIG OR VISIBLE SIGN THAT

WE

VISIT NEW ORLEANS TODAY YOU CAN

THINK

OF?

IT'S STILL THERE. IT'S

AMAZING. I

BELIEVE TEDDY ROOSEVELT

DESERVES MOST

OF THE CREDIT OF THE

BATTLEFIELD AND I

GO BACK.

DECORATED MARINE AND DOUGLAS

BRINKLEY.

WE WALK THE CANAL THAT JACKSON

BUILT.

IT'S ALL THERE.

WE FLEW DRONES.

OUR CAMERAS BECOME DRONES

AND WE ARE

ABLE TO SEE.

EVEN THOUGH IT'S CLEAR IT'S NOT

AS

SWAMPY AND YOU CAN SEE WHERE

JACKSON

DEFENDED AND YOU CAN SEE WHERE

NEW

ORLEANS IS AND HERE NOT TO

BLOCK THEM.

HE SQUARED OFF, HE OUT THOUGHT,

BETTER

TACTICS AND HE WON IN UNDER 45

MINUTES.

AMAZING.

WHERE DOES THIS LOVE OF HISTORY

COME

FOR YOU? I KNOW YOU ARE A BIG

SPORTS

FAN, JOURNALIST.

I DON'T KNOW, I GUESS I LIKE

STORIES.

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THESE

STORIES

HAPPENED AND IT'S AMERICA'S

STORIES AND

IF I TOLD YOU THIS TOOK PLACE

IN A

COMPELLING WAY, YOU ARE ABLE TO

LEARN

ABOUT WHY WE ARE HERE WILL KILL

IT WITH

THREE STONES.

THEY ARE NOT TEACHING AT

HARVARD. IN

MINE MIND, THE PEOPLE THAT BUY

BOOKS

HAVE KIDS TO TAKE CARE OF, A

HOUSE TO

RUN AND TWO JOBS. THAT'S WHERE

THIS

COMES FROM. IF I CAN TELL THE

STORY AND

SELL THE AMERICAN STORY BECAUSE

I GET

KIND OF WEARY TODAY THAT PEOPLE

DON'T

UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE IN AN

EXCEPTIONAL NATION WHEN SOME OF

OUR

LEADERS CAN'T ANSWER THAT

QUESTION,

THAT BOTHERS ME.

WHEN KIDS CAN'T ANSWER THAT

QUESTION,

THAT BOTHERS ME.

THAT'S A GREAT READ. I

BOUGHT THE

AUDIO BOOK SO I WILL DO A GREAT

JOB OF

DELIVERING IT.

ABSOLUTELY.

WHEN YOU WRITE, OKAY, I'M NOT

READING.

AND WHEN YOU GET TO THESE

FRENCH NAMES

AND THEY INSIST ON USING THEIR

LANGUAGE, THAT'S A PROBLEM.

WHEN I GOT

TO THE CHAPTER, IT WAS A

MONSTER.

YOU WOULD NOT KNOW IT.

YOU DID GREAT.

I HAVE HAD PEOPLE TELL ME,

HOW DO

YOU SAY THAT?

GUILTY AS CHARGED.

Efrem: BRYAN'S BOOK IS

AVAILABLE

US.

WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE FOLLOWS

THE
