As seen on â€œThe 700 Club,â€ Aug 24.: King Hezekiah the Prophet Isaiah Debut in Oklahoma; Hawaiians Hunker Down as Hurricane Lane Lashes the Islands; A new movie documenting the crimes and trial of notorious abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell ... ...
- Hello and welcome to the 700 Club.
Hurricane Lane is lashingthe Hawaiian Islands today.
The powerful storm isinundating the islands
with several feet of rainfall.
Flash flood warnings area big part of the danger,
and at least five touristshave already been rescued
from a flooded home.
Jennifer Wishon has moreon what's yet to come.
- [Jennifer] Instead of luaus,loud sirens warned tourists
to leave Hawaii's world-famous beaches,
as Hurricane Lane smacks the islands
with winds and bands of debilitating rain.
Packing winds of 120 miles per hour,
the Category 3 hurricane
is hammering Hawaii's main islands Friday,
bringing dangerous surf of 20 feet.
- The newest threat is from rain,
and you cannot underestimate how much rain
is gonna be falling acrosssome of those islands.
- [Jennifer] In some areas,nearly two feet of rain
have already fallen, and two or three more
are expected across the islands.
Already, mudslides are limiting travel
as residents brace for flooding.
- I mean, we used to run onthis park as little kids,
and now it's a raging river.
- [Jennifer] And with risingwaters come rising anxieties.
- I feel like it's gonna come more,
and our house is gonna get like,
kinda knocked down and stuff like that,
so, I just like, pray andstuff, to not make it happen.
- [Jennifer] Major hotelsare allowing their guests
to stay, but urging them to stay inside.
Still, many tourists are seeking shelters.
- We were very afraid of the storm.
In France, we don't have storm like that,
so we decided not to stay near the beach,
and to go to the shelter.
- [Jennifer] Residents are hunkering down.
- It wasn't rainingwhen Noah built the ark.
And, so what that meansis, readiness is important.
- [Jennifer] Many storesare already closed,
many others are running out of supplies.
- Be prepared to shelter in place.
14 days of food and suppliesand water, medicine.
- Nestled in the Central Pacific,
Hawaii rarely gets hit by hurricanes.
The last major storm to hit the islands
was Iniki back in 1992.
Already, Hurricane Lane is oneIslanders won't soon forget.
- This is not just gonna beover in the next 24 hours.
This system is gonna be with us
for the next four or five days,
continuing to bring winds to the island,
to bring large surf,
as well as the torrentialrains that we've talked about.
- [Jennifer] Jennifer Wishon, CBN News.
- Well, the potential damageis potentially considerable,
so please, keep Hawaii in your prayers.
I know that there are manypeople who couldn't get out,
though they tried to, and sowe just all need to be watching
and praying as they endurethis for the next several days.
Well, in other news, President Trump
and his Attorney Generalare feuding again.
John Jessup has more on that story
from our CBN News Bureauin Washington, John.
- Thanks, Terry.
The public dispute between President Trump
and Attorney General JeffSessions is heating up.
The President iscriticizing Sessions again
for recusing himself fromthe Russia investigation,
saying he failed to take controlof the Justice Department.
On Thursday, Sessions punchedback at Trump's comment,
saying he and his department
quote "will not be improperly influenced
"by political considerations."
Now, fellow Republican LindseyGraham says it may be time
for a new face at the Justice Department.
Graham says quote "ThePresident's entitled
"to having an AttorneyGeneral he has faith in."
well, two Iranian spiescaptured in the United States
were reportedly planning attacks,
according to the Clarion Project.
The Justice Department charged
the two Iranian citizens this week.
They were gathering intelligenceon people and groups
Iran considered enemiesof the Islamic regime.
That included Jewishfacilities, specific Americans,
and an Iranian resistance group.
Well, US National SecurityAdvisor John Bolton
concluded his three-daytour in Israel this week
talking with reporters.
His central message:the Trump administration
will enforce its tough line on Iran.
To Israelis, that's a breath of fresh air.
Chris Mitchell brings usthe story from Jerusalem.
- [Chris] Throughout his visit,
Bolton stressed for Israelis
that the US will never allowIran to get nuclear weapons,
and he noted that the stricteconomic sanctions on Iran
are generating realanti-government protests.
- And by bringing the hammer down again,
of reimposing American sanctions,
we've seen a profoundnegative effect on Iran,
I think, actually, more serious
than we would have predicted.
And what's significantabout the demonstrations
and outpourings thatyou've seen across Iran,
is that to the best of ourknowledge, they're not organized.
This is not some kindof conspiracy in Iran,
it's just regular people
saying they're fed up with the government.
- Bolton's four-day stay here
was longer than most official visits.
That's partly because the White House
is preparing to lay the groundwork
for the rollout of itsMiddle East Peace Plan.
He made it clear that theUS will not impose its plan
on either Israel or the Palestinians,
but he's skeptical about whether Israel
has a real peace partner.
- I can't even begin to countthe number of cease-fires
we've heard from Hamas, Hezbollah,
other terrorist groups over the years.
I would be stunned if anybodyin the government of Israel
is viewing this with anything other than
very, very clear-eyedunderstanding of what it's about.
It's a sad outcome forthe Palestinian people
that all they've got now is a choice
between Hamas and thePalestinian authority.
- [Chris] For Israelis,
the fact that Bolton spent several days
with the country's top leadership
is a refreshing change of pace.
Caroline Glick is ChiefColumnist for the Jerusalem Post.
- What you're really seeing here
is a business-like atmosphere
of two allies coming together
and discussing common interests,
which is something that wehaven't seen in the past
from US administrations whowere blind to the basic reality
which is that Israel is the United States'
most powerful ally in the Middle East.
- [Chris] Chris Mitchell,CBN News, Jerusalem.
- Thanks, Chris.
He's been called America'sbiggest serial killer,
and his victims, children.
A new movie documentingthe crimes and trial
of notorious abortiondoctor Kermit Gosnell
is about to hit theaters,a remarkable feat
considering what thefilmmakers are claiming.
They say Hollywood leftists conspired
to keep it off the big screen
in an effort to silenceit's pro-life message.
Charlene Aaron has this story.
- [Detective] Alright, listen up.
We are looking for anything
that looks like drugs or paraphernalia.
- [Charlene] Audiences willfinally get to see and hear
details of a true life horror story
in Gosnell: The Trial ofAmerica's Biggest Serial Killer.
- Um, I never been in anabortion clinic before.
- [Charlene] StarringDean Cain as a detective,
the PG-13 film explores theshocking crimes and trial
of Philadelphiaabortionist Kermit Gosnell.
Sentenced to life for killing
thousands of babies across three decades.
As far back as the 70s,
the sign on Gosnell's WestPhiladelphia clinic read:
Women's Medical Society.
Then, in 2010, while investigating
an illegal prescription drug operation,
federal agents discovered
what they called a house of horrors.
Three years later, ajury found Gosnell guilty
of murdering three babies born alive.
According to the Grand Juryreport, Gosnell killed them
by severing their spinalcords with scissors.
Investigators also discovered
refrigerators full of abortedfetuses in his offices.
The case went largely uncovered
by politicians and the mainstream media.
- You'd think a caseabout a medical doctor
killing babies born alivewould be a big news story,
but what was also shocking aboutthe trial of Kermit Gosnell
was how little mediaattention it received.
I was in the courtroom forCBN News, covering the trial,
just one of a handful ofjournalists in that courtroom,
and that really becamepart of the storyline,
which is why it was described
as one of the most importantstories never told.
- We at the Media ResearchCenter, we actually tracked this,
and we found it took 56 days
before all three broadcastnetworks covered his story,
so those are news showsby ABC, NBC, and CBS.
So, yes, there was absolutely a blackout,
and it's hard to know why exactly,
because abortion is a huge issue
that American's are concerned about,
and this shouldn't justbe an issue for, say,
people who are againstabortion or for abortion.
It's a human rights issue.
These were atrocities that were happening
in this abortion clinic.
- [Charlene] Producers AnnMcElhinney and Phelim McAleer say
they were on a mission toexpose the truth about Gosnell.
They told CBN NewsHollywood rejected the film
because of its subject matter.
- At every moment of thisprocess, there's been challenges,
like, even from the very beginning,
when we started the crowdfunding campaign
and we went to Kickstarter,
where we had raised money before
for a different film, for FrackNation.
And suddenly we go to Kickstarter,
you know, we tell them our whole campaign,
and suddenly, they'rebasically censoring us.
They said, "Oh you can'tmention babies murdered.
"You can't mentionbabies stabbed to death."
And it's like, well,how do we tell the story
of why we're raising moneyfor a film about a thing?
We have to describe it.
So, it wasn't that.
It wasn't that.
They didn't want us to have this,
they didn't want to haveanything to do with us.
- Actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife, Sam,
supported the movie by urging people
to donate to the fundraising campaign,
Sorbo recently tweeting,"We raised over $2 million
"for the making of this film.
"Hope you all support to seethe truth behind this case."
Gosnell: The Trial ofAmerica's Biggest Serial Killer
is set to release to over 600 theaters
nationwide October 12th.
Charlene Aaron, CBN News.
- Thanks, Charlene.
Terry, this film has thepotential to be a big talker.
- You know, it's reallydifficult to imagine, isn't it,
that something so horrific could happen,
and that your political positionon the issue of abortion
would keep you from acknowledging
just how horrific this was.
I mean, this defies comprehension.
