- [Reporter] WallBuildersDavid Barton takes us

inside This PrecariousMoment, in American history,

on today's 700 Club.

(majestic music)

- Welcome folks, to thisedition of the 700 Club.

Today, the day of mourningfor our late President,

George Bush, a great man.

We talked about him and westill keep him in remembrance.

This is a ceremony and thegovernment's shut down,

the Stock Market's down.

And so this is the time that we

stand kind of quietly inremembrance of this great man.

But in the news, there's aman named Mohammad bin Salman.

He's one of the princes in Saudi Arabia.

And they have a whole bunch of princes.

And the head of the el Saud family

it took over Arabia andcalled it Saudi Arabia.

And they've got a whole family

and they got all these princes.

And this guy, MBS they call him,

has taken over and he's beenrunning it like a mafia gang.

He locked up a bunchof his fellow princes,

extorted a huge amount of money from them.

It was unbelievable and now, apparently

this journalist who workedwith the Washington Post,

and may have, I don'tknow if he had Americans

citizenship, but he certainly lived here,

was murdered in Turkey.

And the President has notwanted to deal with it.

But the Republicans now,in the Senate, are saying,

listen, we're not gonnasweep this one under the rug.

And this crown prince has gotto pay for what he's done.

And I think that's appropriate.

I don't think we'll lose the relationship

with Saudi Arabia

because there are a whole lotof other princes over there

who are more than willingto dance on the grave

of their fellow and to get back in power

and to see him go down.

There wouldn't be a tearshed in Saudi Arabia.

But so far the Presidenthas been unwilling

to criticize this ally

because they think herepresents Saudi Arabia.

And he doesn't.

- Well, Pat, several Senatorswant to hold the Saudis

accountable and afterthe CIA Director briefed

Capitol Hill Tuesday, theyhave no doubt that the

Crown Prince is behind the killing.

Dale Hurd has our story.

- After Tuesday's briefing by CIA Director

Gina Haspel, Senators aremore convinced than ever

that Saudi Crown PrinceMohammad bin Salman

is responsible for the murder

of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi was last seenwalking into the Saudi

consulate in Istanbul in October.

The CIA believes a Saudihit squad killed him there

on the Crown Prince's instructions,

one of the reportedly using a bone saw.

The White House isrefusing to pin the blame

on the Crown Prince, apparently afraid

of damaging relations.

- We have no smoking gun thatthe Crown Prince was involved.

- [Dale] But after Tuesday's CIA briefing,

Republican SenatorLindsey Graham disagreed.

- There's not a smokinggun, there's a smoking saw.

You have to be willfullyblind, not to come

to the conclusion thatthis was orchestrated

and organized by people in,under the command of MBS.

- I have zero question in my mind that the

Crown Prince, MBS, ordered the killing,

monitored the killing, knewexactly what was happening,

planned it in advance.

If he was in front of ajury, he would be convicted

in thirty minutes, guilty.

- [Dale] The killing hasbecome a major diplomatic

problem for the White House.

Militarily Saudi Arabia is a staunch ally

and a buffer againstIranian military expansion.

A major arms sale to theSaudis is also in the offing.

The Senate could voteto end that arms sale

or end US support for SaudiArabia's war in Yemen.

So far, President Trump hasgiven the Saudi Crown Prince

the benefit of the doubt about his role.

- I don't know.

I don't know.

But whether he did or whether he didn't,

he denies it vehemently.

- [Dale] And the Saudisspokesperson tweeted Tuesday,

we categorically rejectany accusations purportedly

linking the Crown Princeto this horrific incident.

But the evidence shown toSenators indicates otherwise.

And there's now increasedpressure on the White House

to admit that the CrownPrince is responsible.

Dale Hurd, CBN News.

- Thanks Dale.

You know folks, it's a no brainer.

No brainer.

But there's a king overthere and all the President's

gotta do is say to the king, look,

your boy has gotten out of hand.

You've got to reign him in

and put somebody else in his place.

It's just that simple.

And so why cover up for this fellow.

He's a thug.

Why have an ally that's like that?

He's repressive.

He's brought, has all kinds of repressive

action against his own people.

Why cover up for him?

The king can get him out.

And Trump just needs to call the King

and say, Your Majesty,

there's too much heat on your boy.

He's got to go.

End of story.

Well, there's new informationcoming out about a witness

in the Russia Investigation.

It may be more bad news for the President

or it may not.

But Efrem Graham has that.

(swoosh)

- Pat, Robert Mueller isrecommending no prison time

for former Trump NationalSecurity Advisor, Michael Flynn,

in the Russia Investigation.

Mueller noted Flynn'scooperation and substantial

assistance in a legal memo.

According to the heavilyredacted documents,

the former General wasinterviewed 19 times,

providing information on interactions

between the Trump transition team

and Russian government officials.

It also says Flynn is assisting

with an unnamed criminal investigation.

Turning overseas, now opponents of Israeli

Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu,

are calling on him to resign in the face

of potential criminal charges.

Israeli police recommended his indictment

on charges of bribery and breech of trust.

As Chris Mitchell now reports,

some believe the entire investigation

is a political coup, by legal means.

(swoosh)

- [Chris] The leader ofIsrael's far left Meretz Party,

demanded Israeli PrimeMinister, Netanyahu step down.

- [Translator] A Prime Ministerwho is accused of a the

most serious offense for a public servant

in the Israeli rule book,

cannot keep serving for even one more day.

He must resign today.

Israel must go to elections.

- [Chris] Former ForeignMinister, Tzipi Livni,

added to the chorus,

saying Netanyahu reacted like a mob boss.

Others see an entrenchedbureaucracy at work.

- We have some seriousproblems with what we call

our Deep State in Israel, where you have

unaccountable clerks and public servants

who stay on forever andthey have a very clear

political agenda, which is not the agenda

of the elected government or of the people

who elected them.

- [Chris] Since the late1990's, when Netanyahu

first served as PrimeMinister, he and his wife Sara

have faced 22 separate investigations.

- The left, on the otherhand, is completely

discredited itself from somany different perspectives

that it really has no chanceof winning an election

in the foreseeable future.

They can't deal with the competence that

he's bringing to bear inthe Prime Minister's office.

It's making people likehim or vote for him

even if they don't like him.

And this is despitethe fact that the media

treatment of Netanyahuhas been overwhelmingly

and consistently negativefor the past generation.

- [Chris] Middle Eastexpert, Caroline Glick,

believes the police, thejudiciary and the media

are determined to undermine Netanyahu.

Glick sees a mirror imagebetween what's happening

here with Netanyahu and in the US

with President Trump.

- They can't find an underlying crime

and so they're tryingto go on process crimes.

In Israel's case, in Netanyahu's case,

they're saying thatNetanyahu was bad because he

made a deal which was legal,

that the regulators approved.

And they're trying to dothis in order to unseat

a sitting Prime Minister.

- [Chris] Despite the legalcloud, Glick sees hope

for Israel's Prime Minister.

- I don't think this isgonna work in Israel's case

because again, the publicsupport in Netanyahu,

not because we love him, but because he's

an excellent Prime Minister.

We all should be disturbed,both by what's happening

in the United States andwhat's happening in Israel,

obviously and what's happening throughout

the western world, thatwe're seeing more and more

of this trend.

And it really has to be addressed

and overturned.

- [Chris] Israel's AttorneyGeneral will make the final

determination of anyindictment of Netanyahu.

His office has indicatedthere's not a specific deadline.

And it's possible thedecision may not come

until the spring.

Chris Mitchell, CBN News, Jerusalem.

- A political coup, by legal means, Pat.

- Ladies and gentlemen,it's amazing isn't it?

These bureaucrats, that areentrenched in these governments

don't care anything about theoverall political picture.

What they care about istheir own little bailiwick,

their little fiefdom.

And they want to maintainpower at all costs.

And so when a disrupter comes in and says

I'm gonna drain the swamp,I'm gonna change things,

all of a sudden, in ourcountry you've got the FBI

doing things and you have a clear evidence

of members of the FBItrying to hurt Trump.

You've got the JusticeDepartment trying to do things

to hurt Trump.

And you've got others,of course, the media

is like a pack of dogs, baying

in pursuit of a fox.

They're doing everything theycan to take him out of office.

And then you have a politicalparty that's opposed to him

like they do, they'vegot the party in Israel

with Tzipi Livni and others

who say we want to get rid of him.

He's a terrific Prime Minister.

He's a wonderful friendand he is very strong.

And what Israel needs is a strong leader

against the people whoare trying to destroy her.

We need the same thing in America.

We need a strong leaderwho is going to represent

the interest of this nation

against those who aretrying to destroy her.

It's a mirror image,and I hope the Israelis

will recognize what Caroline Glick said,

they're trying to get himon so called process crime.

And you look at MichaelFlynn, it's the same thing.

Well, he lied to someFBI agent or something

when he was being interviewed.

They haven't done anything wrong.

And that's what the danger with Mueller

and his investigation is,

if he'd ever get the President in there

he would get him on lying.

Perjury is the crime, notwhat anything he's ever done.

But there's no way, giventhe makeup of our country

and the Senate the way it is,

that any work of impeachment

is going to succeed against Trump.

You have a movement ofimpeachment in the House

they take a vote toimpeach, okay, big deal.

Then it goes to the Senate.

The Senate is the jury.

And there's no way you'regonna get a majority

of the Senators with theRepublicanS in charge,

that you're gonna voteagainst the President.

So it's not going to happen.

And so it's like

Don Quixote tilting at the windmills.

There's not going to win.

Same thing with Netanyahu,that bunch is not gonna

get him out.

They just want to weaken him.

Why would any nation wantto weaken their leader?

We want a strong leaderand let's do everything

we can to support our leader.

And let's hope the Israeliswill do the same thing.

Efrem?

- Pat, today is a National Day of Mourning

for former President George H.W. Bush.

Thousands of people have streamed through

the National Rotundato pay their respects.

Among them, former Senator Bob Dole.

The 95 year old washelped from his wheelchair

to stand and salute his longtime colleague

and fellow World War II veteran.

Today, George W. Bushwill deliver the eulogy

at the National Cathedral service.

And Christian singer, Michael W. Smith,

a longtime friend of the Bush family,

will sing Friends.

The service begins at 11 am.

Here in Washington, our CBNNews Team will have coverage

and commentary on the CBN News Channel.

To find out where you canwatch the News Channel

in your area, go to our website.

That's CBNNews.com.

American financialmarkets are closed today

in honor of former President Bush.

Investors are hoping stockswill bounce back tomorrow.

The Market had anotherbrutal selloff Tuesday

with the Dow Industrialsdropping nearly 800 points.

The sharp fall came amidnew concerns the Trump

Administration won'tbe able to work out its

trade disputes with China,

and worries that interestrates may be signaling

the economy is slowing down.

Pat?

- There was an inversionon the interest rates

that sometimes signals a decline.

I'm pleased to reportthat some of the stocks

that I had did very well.

- How do you do that?

You need to give us your secrets.

- Well, for example, Ithought gold was a good thing.

There's a company called Barrick Gold,

it's the top miner and thefellow in charge of it,

John Thornton, he usedto run Goldman Sachs.

He's a good man.

And he has put some reforms in place

and Barrick is now a low cost producer

and they've got the biggest bunch of gold.

So I got Barrick gold,a whole lot of shares,

and lo and behold, they went up.

- Gold went up when the 800 points went.

- That's right, and regulated utilities,

there's this thing calledNexTier down there in Florida.

They've got the, they'reprobably the leading

providers of solar and wind power.

But they also have a regulated utility,

Florida Power and Light.

So that went up.

So, why buy stocks that'sare gonna go down? (laughing)

When all these high-fliers, you know.

- You're talking about singular stocks,

you know, most people have mutual funds

and they have 401K's.

- You can get mutual fundsthat invest in various things.

Healthcare and defenseand that sort of thing.

I think defense stocks are gonna go up.

But right now, what wecall, the fang stocks,

you know, those high-flying stocks,

they all went down.

They'd gone too high already.

So, but they haven't gone down that much.

And they'll recover.

But what'll happen is, thedollar has been so strong

versus other currencies,

and there's no place else for people

to invest their money really.

I mean, where would you put your money,

you put it in French, French stocks?

No way.

You're gonna go into Germany,

are you gonna to to Turkey?

Where you gonna put your money?

Really there's no place,America's still the

big powerhouse so ultimately

whatever is happening tothe Stock Market going out,

it's the Fed that's causing the problem.

The Fed looks like they'regonna raise interest rates.

But the Stock Market is going to be strong

and the dollar is strong.

And that I think is gonnabe the determining factor.

- So it's a good time to invest still?

- I think so, I wouldn't get rid of.

But be cautious.

But if stocks,

you know they're gonnabe paying good dividends,

that's the key.

And if you got something that's solid,

then you're gonna be successful.

But this is no time for fliers

on third world company stock.

No way in heaven.

They will be tanked in the next few years.

Alright?

- Alright, sounds good.

Efrem's got more for us.

- Pat and Wendy,intermittent fasting may be

the hot new way Hollywoodcelebrities lose weight,

but this ancientdiscipline that's practiced

in the Bible, has other health benefits.

As our Lorie Johnson showsus, scientists have found

remarkable health improvements that go

way beyond the red carpet.

(swoosh)

- The Bible tells us fasting is good

for our spiritual health.

But new research shows it benefits our

physical health too.

The latest weight loss crazeis intermittent fasting,

which means going withoutfood for a long period

of time each day.

Many people choose tofast up to 18 hours a day

and only eat within afour to six hour window.

- What's great about intermittent fasting

is that you can do it some of the time

or most of the time and stillstand to reap great benefits.

- [Lorie] Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez,

Courtney Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Beyonce

and Hugh Jackman, reportedlychoose intermittent fasting

to lose weight.

But researchers at theUniversity of California

and elsewhere, say the benefitsgo beyond looking good.

- There are 10 years ofreally very interesting data

and very compelling research studies

on intermittent fasting,preventing atherosclerosis,

there may be cancer prevention benefits.

- [Lorie] And protectionagainst Alzheimer's,

heart disease, even aging, while boosting

the immune system.

Fasting triggers the releaseof old inefficient cells,

making way for newhealthy ones, doctors say.

- Even though we wouldstill recommend a healthy

balanced diet, we're notas focused on what you eat,

rather when you eat.

- So while ancient scripturetells us forgiveness,

letting go of worry andfasting, bless the soul,

modern medicine tells us, these practices

also benefit the body.

- Well, the Bible says it again.

Pat?

- Lorie's here to join us to talk

about intermittent fasting.

Apparently, when we fast,

our body wants to mobilize its strength

to fight off starvation and it's that

that is the health benefit.

What is released when that happens?

- Well, it's true, our bodies turn into

a lean, mean, fighting machine

when we go into fasting.

And we've known that fasting is something

that health practitionershave been recommending

for thousands of years,

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine,

recommended it 400 years before Christ,

and ancient Chinese medicine.

But as far as western medicine,they need scientific proof.

And now they have it.

The results are in andfasting is good for almost

every area of the body.

And they now know why.

And it's a little thing called autophagy.

It looks like auto phagy,I've got a graphic here.

Basically, what this means, is

auto means self, phagy means consume.

And what happens is, within our cells,

our cells consume damaged particles

and portions in our cellsand then regenerates them.

So it's wonderful for all of our cells,

including cancer cells.

I mean, this is something that goes on.

But when we fast, it accelerates it.

- Well, you know, some people think,

well, there's gotta be a seven day fast

or a thirty day fast.

Actually they're talking about half a day

or one day of fasting and

it doesn't have to be too long, does it?

- Ideally, what you want to do,

when you're intermittentfasting, and you can do this

every day of the weekfor every of the year,

is you go 16 hours without food.

Which basically, actually18 is even better,

which basically means you havea six hour window of eating.

I do it all the time.

It's not that bad.

I'll eat between twelve noon and six pm.

So basically, you'rejust skipping breakfast.

But it's something that,this is what a lot of the

health practitioners are recommended.

Of course, it's notrecommended for some people

like pregnant women andpeople whose doctors

have told them to eat a certain way.

So if we're generally healthy people,

this is what you're talking about.

- This is just once a week.

You don't have to do it all the time.

- You don't have to do it all the time.

Some people choose tohave this as their regular

lifestyle, some people onlydo it every once in a while.

But, science has shown us,that when we do fast like this,

when you go for 18 hourswithout food, or longer,

that we have mental clarity.

And we know from the Bible,

that a lot of times people will fast

so that they will hear from the Lord,

that they're seekingthe Lord for direction

in their lives.

And also we know from the Bible,

that the enemy of oursoul creates confusion

and that in the Bible we're told

that when we fast, we can drive out demons

and this helps, fastingwe know, drives out this

spirit of confusion.

So once again, scienceand the Bible link up.

And I'm like, I could've told you that.

Why'd you need to spendall this money on research?

- Is there a book or a pamphletor anything about this,

by the way?

- There's a great, a lot ofinformation on the internet.

We have wonderfulinformation on our website,

CBNNews.com.

But this has been shown to really affect,

intermittent fasting is reallywonderful for our hormones,

it increases the human growth hormone,

that makes us young and vibrant.

And it also helps reduceheart disease and reduces

our risk for diabetes.

And just when you think about it,

again, getting back to the Bible,

we're told to rest for one day.

Well, our bodies need rest too.

When our bodies aren'tbusy digesting food,

they can self cleanse.

They can detox.

So we're talking aboutour liver, our kidneys,

our lungs, our colon, alldetox when we're fasting.

- Fabulous.

Now we're talking aboutepigenetics, by the way.

Does fasting haveanything to do with that?

- You're so good.

(laughing)

Yes.

When I was researching this, I thought,

Pat's gonna love this,

because yes, it's been shown

that when we fast, itturns of the good genes

and turns off the bad ones.

And that's what epigenetics is for folks

who aren't up to speed on it.

- Question, by the say, that came in,

I want to throw it to you.

This guy said, okay, we'vedone this gut flora thing.

How do you know if yourgut flora is good or bad?

- That's a great question.

And they're working on a test.

They're working on a test.

But you just have to do your best

but there's isn't, there isn't as we know,

a test that accurately showswhat your gut flora is.

Except, there is one,

- [Pat] Fecal.

- There you go,

Now, you can talk aboutthat on national TV.

Because remember people areeating right now. (laughing)

- I thought of that don'twant to ruin their food.

But that's the only test there is.

- Right, a fecal test.

And so, for people whoknow what that means,

they can examine itand they really do find

all kinds of informationabout what kind of bacteria,

good and bad, you have in your intestines.

And there're doing the fecal transplants,

which is a whole 'nuther thing.

- We talked about that earlier.

- But that is actuallyvery, very effective.

- Amen, well, I think

we've helped a lot of people with that.

Because they're overweightand the thing that people

didn't realize is that in their gut,

there are little bugsthat are causing them

to overeat and they're takingcontrol of their brain.

These things actually affectyour brain, don't they?

- There's a think calledthe gut-brain access.

And the bacteria in our gut,directly affects our brain,

even to the point where it influences

things like Alzheimer's and dementia.

And we hear so muchthese days about the rise

in suicide and depressionand one has to wonder

if that's associatedwith poor gut microbiome.

Because our gut microbiome is destroyed

by antibiotics, processed food, sugar

and artificial sweeteners.

And people are eating this food

in great quantities than ever before.

- And they're suckingdown these diet drinks,

thinking that somehowthat's gonna make them thin.

It's actually makes them fat.

- It has the reverse effect, you're right.

The diet sodas have been shown in studies

to actually cause weight gain.

- Okay, I think that'syour Christmas present.

When do we start fasting right away?

- You know, you canfast in very many ways.

Intermittent fasting,which is the new big craze

and it does lead to weight loss.

But so many other health benefits.

That is typically, youfast for 18 hours a day.

Which means you just eatwithin a six hour window.

Which really means, youjust skip breakfast.

And a lot of people are like,

oh no I have to have breakfast.

Okay, then just skip dinner.

Eat between six in the morning and noon.

Just whatever six hours you choose.

But of course, there arelots of other ways to fast

and the Bible doesn't really specify

how to fast.

You can fast for one or two days.

Or have just a teeny,tiny little bit of food

for a week.

You know, 500 or 600 calories a day.

There a lots of different ways to do it.

- I remember, we were in New York,

somebody said we're gonna have a fast.

What kind of fast?

No pleasant bread.

And said, what does that mean?

It means you're not gonna eat dessert.

We haven't been having dessert anyhow.

(laughing)

- That's not much of a fast.

- No pleasant bread.

That was a Daniel fast.

Well, Lorie, thank you so much.

You're always up to date on these.

Ladies and gentlemen, she's bringing you

cutting edge epigenetics, the gut flora,

this whole thing aboutintermittent fasting.

This is cutting edge medicine that is

gonna make people healthy and

especially stuff with Parkinson's,

which is so prevalent these days.

- And we're not flat out victims any more.

There are so many thingswe can do to prevent

these neurodegenerative diseases

like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.

As far as a cure, not so much.

Because these braincells are already dead.

But we can do lots of things to keep them

from dying in the first place.

And speaking of brain issues,

I'm gonna be back onMonday on the 700 Club

to talk about a veryserious situation, CTE,

the brain disease that we know

has affected football players.

But now we're talking aboutpeople in the military,

people who are victims of spousal abuse,

anybody who gets hit in the head.

And guess what.

Concussions do not cause it anymore.

It's hits to the head.

So you can get CTE withoutever having a concussion.

So this is a must watch for folks,

especially parents who want their boys

to play football.

Mama, don't let your babies grow up

to be football players.

- Amen.

You know, I've got agrandson who's a terrific

football player, had a scholarship.

He goes into practice andhe gets kicked in the head.

And he gets a serious concussion.

I said, will you quit that?

He said, yeah, I finally quit.

I said, well, I told you to stop before.

Because who cares aboutwhether you are a star

in some second rate football team

when you, I mean, whatmatters is what's going on

with your brain.

And if you have your brain, is addled,

it's not gonna help.

- And CTE is so horrible.

It really just robs youof your personality.

This is another thing thatcauses suicide to go up.

And I also have a son who played football

and I had a false sense of security,

as I'm sure a lot of parents do.

I though, oh well, he'snever had a concussion.

He's fine.

Not true.

It's not about concussion.

It's about getting hit in the head

and they say that these football players

in practice and in gamesin just one season,

they'll get hit in the head violently

hundreds of times.

- Plus, girls playing soccer.

Hit the ball with their headover and over and over again.

- Right.

That's Monday.

- I interviewed the doctorwho came up with that concept.

He's a wonderful man.

And boy the National Football League

went after him.

- Ooh, right.

- Terrible, trying tosue him to keep him from

releasing his findings.

But anyhow, we'll talk about that Monday.

So it gives you somethingto look forward to.

Wendy, you two aregreatest, thank you so much.

God bless you.

- I feel healthier justlistening to you guys.

Alright, well coming up,why one historian says

why America may be onthe brink of disaster.

But the good news is there's still hope

to reclaim our future.

David Barton explains, next.

(serious music)

(jazzy holiday music)

- Well, it may seem as if America is in

the middle of another gilded age.

The economy is roaring ahead, it's up.

Unemployment has reached record lows.

But author David Bartonsays don't be fooled.

We're at a precariousmoment in our history.

(swoosh)

- [Reporter] David Bartonis a Constitutional expert

and a founder of WallBuilders,

a national pro-family organization.

He says we must address certain issues,

like racial division, agrowing immigration crisis

and declining churchattendance if we are to survive

as a nation.

- Every single revivalwill affect public policy.

It will change our laws,it will always do that.

- [Reporter] As the co-authorof This Precarious Moment,

David highlights the causesfor chaos in our country

and offers urgent stepswe can take to be a part

of the solution today.

- Well, David Barton's here with us.

He's the author of this new book.

It's called, This Precarious Moment,

Six Urgent Steps that willSave You and Your Family.

David, what's precarious,what's happening?

Good to see you. (laughing)

- We're kind of standing on the brink

in six specific areas.

And they're all areasthat we've dealt with

in history before.

But this generation,we're trying to decide

whether we're gonna walkoff the cliff or not.

And so we have some decisions to make.

These areas, no nation has ever come back

if they've made the wrong decision.

So we do have some decisions to make.

- Those that fail to heedthe lessons of history

are doomed to live them again.

- That's right.

- What are some of these precarious steps?

- First thing we pointto is racial relations.

Where we are with the racial relations,

and what we do is we say, these are things

that can be solved individually.

So what we do in the book is say

here are individual thingsthat you as a person

can do to make a difference in this area.

So racial relations, immigration.

Where we are with ourrelationship with Israel

and although President hasmade it so much better,

we're at a point where that last year,

we had 1600 anti-Israelevents on campuses.

We have doubled hate crimesagainst Jewish people

in the last year.

Right now, Millennials,66 percent of Millennials

have never heard of Auschwitz.

22 percent don't knowwhat the Holocaust is.

- 66 have never heard of Auschwitz?

- Have never heard of it.

- Come on.

- And so what we're losingour historical memory

on things so we're deciding,oh Jews aren't that great.

And so what we're seeing withAirbnb and what they're doing

with not wanting to rent to Jewish folks

because of what's happening in Israel.

That kind of anti-Semitism is up.

But we can fix that individually.

We point to Millennials,where Millennials are.

Right now, in college, 75percent of college students,

want us to be a socialistic nation.

- Come on, you're serious?

- 75 percent, 75 percent.

- Do they know what Socialism is?

- That's the thing, they do not.

Talking to George Barna,he recently did a poll

where that 41 percent ofAmericans want Socialism.

But he went and asked anadditional 41 questions.

And once they found out whatit was, only two percent

actually wanted it.

So what happens is theydon't know what it is

but they want it.

And we have 53 percentof students in college

right now, who think thatfree speech should not

be protected and 19percent of college students

think that violence isan acceptable response

to free speech you disagree with.

So these are all Precarious Moments.

So what do we do to change it?

And that's really what we focus on.

- You mentioned immigration.

What do the Founding Fatherssay about immigration?

You've brought up Jefferson'sthoughts and others'.

What do they think about it?

- You know it's interesting.

They were huge pro-immigration guys

in the sense that ofthe 39 guys who signed

the Constitution, sevenof them were immigrants.

And the immigrant guyssaid, man if we had voted

when we first got toAmerica, we would have

made America like thecountries we came from.

They said you need time here,

because this is such a different nation.

And so they're the ones whoset up the time parameters.

One of them, Pierce Butlerfrom South Carolina said,

look, I'm an immigrant.

Nobody should be allowedto vote in America

till you've been here 14 years.

Well, they actually settled on five years,

is what the Constitution says.

So they did not allow immigrants to vote

till you've been here five years.

You learn the system, youknow what's happening.

We've got, in California right now,

registering illegals to vote.

Well, that'll make Americajust like the country

that they came from.

Founding Fathers were huge pro-immigration

but they wantedassimilation and they wanted

education to go with it.

- I've read that about

the illegal immigrants,

about what is it, four million

that are on welfare?

- It's higher than that.

It's about 63 percent, now, that get some

- [Pat] 63?- They get some form

of government assistance.

- They're illegal immigrants.

- And the FoundingFathers were very adamant

that if you come to America,and go on public assistance

within five years, you'll be deported.

You have to supportyourself when you get here.

- [Pat] Are you serious?

- That was Founding Father policy.

- You've been here andyou don't support yourself

you've got to be deported?

- You've got to be ableto support yourself

for five years and you can't come unless

a religious society gives a recommendation

of your character.

So you had to have good moral character.

These extreme vetting iswhat the Founding Fathers

got started back in the beginning.

- Why is everybody so,

who wants this open borders thing?

Is the idea, you're getan uninformed electorate

that they'll be malleable, and therefore

they'll vote Democratic?

Is that the idea?

- Well, there's such aprogressive thinking.

This is what we see in schools

with the kids wanting socialism.

That progressive thinkingthat says, we're globalists,

we're all one.

You shouldn't have anyborders anywhere in the world.

And so we see that withEurope, with Poland

pushing back now, saying nowe're not doing the immigration

thing, the EU's doing.

And the Czech Republicand Hungary and others.

Those younger European nationsare going in the direction

that America went.

But here in America,they're trying to push us

in the direction of that globalism.

But that's a progressive thinking.

That's just what we've faced for years.

- You're talking aboutAmerica being a post-modern.

What do you think and why do you think so?

- Well, we don't knowour history any more.

Quite frankly, we justdo not teach history.

We see right now that we have 92 percent

of immigrants who come to America can pass

the history test in America.

Only 7 percent of high school seniors

can pass the immigration test.

Our kids who have been 12 years in school

don't know anything about this country.

The immigrants coming inknow much more than we do.

- Is this a plot from the teachers' union,

somehow to dumb down our citizens?

What, the kids reallycan't read and write.

They get through.

- We have 19 percent inany given year right now,

19 percent of kids graduate from school

100 percent illiterate.

19 percent, one out of five kids.

- Graduate from public school,

19 percent illiterate?

- Cannot read or write at all.

And that's after we spend164 thousand dollars

for them to get an education, 19 percent

are illiterate.

So we have a very messedup education system.

It does not do well.

We no longer do thetesting the way we used to.

We used to have national tests.

We said, oh, Texas is 45thand Mississippi is 32nd.

Now every state does itsown test so you can't

compare the states tosee where education is.

Everybody feels good about themselves

because they've got their own test.

- What do you think is going on?

Has it been a deliberate attempt?

This new way of reading, this is a monkey,

you learn 'cause he's got a tail.

They don't do phonics,they don't learn math.

They don't learn these practical skills.

- They don't learn these skills anymore.

And even in history, which is something

we both love and believethat you can learn from,

whatever generation you're in,

you can learn from the past.

Right not, of the top 76universities in America,

if you go there are a history major,

in 64 of the 76 universities,you will not take

a single course on American History.

You get everybody else's history.

You will get no American History.

And that's as a history major.

University of Wisconsinis dropping History

as a major at all.

You can't even take thehistory major if you want it.

So we're determined to moveaway from who we've been.

We don't want anybodyto know what we've done

or what our government is.

The average length of a Constitution,

history of the world, is 17 years.

Newsflash, we've had ours 231 years.

That's good.

But we don't even tellkids that we're different

from other nations.

We say, we're just like everybody.

No, America is special.

But it won't stay specialif we do what every

other nation's done.

And we just can't do that.

And that's really why we wrote the book.

- Is this a communist,who's behind all of this?

Somebody's gotta be behind.

- Pat, it's a worldview thing.

Because quite frankly, ifyou believe in evolution,

then you've got to believe that man

is always moving forward.

The Founding Fathers used horses,

we can't learn from them.

We've got.

And so the first thing youdrop in evolution, is history.

Because we've evolved past where,

we can't learn from history.

We won't make the mistakes they did.

So you move history.

And if you're alwaysevolving then you believe

that man is inherently good.

Which means that you don'tneed restraints on government.

Big government is what youneed because man's good

and they'll do the right thing for you.

And so it's a worldviewissue that you get into.

And when you have thatnon-biblical worldview

or progressive secular worldview,you get rid of history,

you have big government,you have social programs,

because the government'sgonna take care of you.

because we're inherently good.

And that's just not what the Bible teaches

and that's not what history teaches.

- Well, that sounds likethe French Revolution.

It's Rousseau.

- It is, it is.

But you're talking history Pat. (laughing)

You can't talk history.

Nobody studies history any more.

- They chopped a bunchof people's heads off

because of that.

Remember the guillotine.

- 40,000 in a short period of time,

they used the guillotine on. (laughing)

- David, I hope people get this book.

It's available wherever,This Precarious Moment.

Where do they sell this?

- Any major book distributor will have it.

Online, WallBuilders.com,Amazon, any of them will have it.

- Alright, David Bartonis a brilliant scholar.

I just appreciate his viewand what he's got to say.

He's a fountain of learningand I think this book,

I commend to all of you.

David thank you so much.

- Thanks, Pat.

- God bless.- Bless you bro.

- Alright, Wendy, what's next?

- Well up next, confessionsfrom a stripper.

- [Dana] It's glamorousand it's attentions on you.

And the money, you knowwhen someone's laying down

hundred dollar bills at your feet,

how do you say no to that?

It's like a drug.

- [Reporter] Watch how shefinally kicks the habit,

after this.

(pounding music)

right after this.

(dramatic music)

(friendly music)

- The men covered herwith hundred dollar bills.

They threw hundred dollar bills at her.

She was so good at what she did.

Her name is Dana.

And Dana loved being a stripper.

She loved the glamour,she loved the attention

and more than anything,she loved all those

hundred dollar bills thatwere thrown at her feet.

But after seven years, Dana was addicted

to that lifestyle.

And the suddenly, allshe wanted was a way out.

- I remember walking up the stairs

and seeing lights everywhere.

It was very, very dark.

And money was flying everywhere.

I mean, money was everywhere.

- [Reporter] It wassurvival that compelled

Dana Candillo to steponto a stripper stage

for the first time.

- And the thing that hit me was, my bills

the things that I needed money for,

those things were no longer my problem.

- [Reporter] Dana grew upin Independence, Missouri

where she lived in poverty.

Her mom was teenage drugaddict and alcoholic.

And her father was a convict.

She felt no one cared.

Then at age, eight,she was sexually abused

by an acquaintance of her mom's.

- Just shattered, total brokenness.

I felt like something was wrong with me.

- [Reporter] But thatonly deepened her need

to be loved and accepted.

By age 12 she found itthrough partying, drinking

and using drugs.

- And I'm searching anywherefor love, for attention,

for someone to just tonotice that I existed

or to care.

In high school, she startedgetting work as a model

and entering beauty contests.

She liked the money and finallyshe was getting noticed.

When Dana was 17, theowner of a tanning salon

she frequented, approached her

about entering bikini contests.

She agreed, only to discover later

he had other plans for her.

- And the next thing that I knew,

he began calling my house

and there was harassment, coercion,

manipulation, startedtalking to me about dancing.

The amounts of moneythat were being talked

to me about was difficult to say no to.

- [Reporter] He booked Danaat a strip club in Nebraska.

Her first night on stage,led to seven and a half

years in the industry.

- You feel like it's glamorousand this attention's on you.

And the money, when someone's laying down

hundred dollar bills at your feet

how do you say no to that?

It's like a drug.

It turns into an addiction.

- [Reporter] She latermarried and had a baby.

But the marriage ended in divorce.

And Dana, now a single mom,

had to keep dancing to make ends meet.

A few years later, shebecame pregnant again

and had an abortion.

- I didn't know what to do.

Because I was absolutely overwhelmed

with feelings of fatherlessness.

How could I, all I could think about

was how could I bringanother child into this world

and allow them to feel like I felt,

like unwanted and not have a dad.

I was probably in the deepest,lowest part of my life

at that point.

And I started thinkingabout, I have a four year old

daughter, what if I'm her role model?

What if she decided tofollow in my footsteps

and that set off thereign of terror in me.

- [Reporter] One day shegot a call from her mother.

She had become a Christianand invited Dana to church.

- She completely gaveup cigarettes, alcohol.

It's like miraculous.

And watching thattransformation process happen,

would cause me to go andsee what's happening.

When my feet hit the carpet in that place,

I felt this incredible rushing power.

It was like electric ocean waves

just over and over and over.

And I wanted to go forward.

I had that drive andthat desire to go forward

but I started to hear this whisper,

you don't have a plan for that.

You better not go downthere an commit to that.

And I was reminded about

what I needed to do to make money

and so it caused me that day to

walk back out the door.

- [Reporter] The next Sunday,Dana went back to the church.

- I went straight to thealter and fully surrendered

my life and my life'snever been the same again.

I cried out to God andsaid, please help me.

If you are real, pleasecome in and invade me.

Invade my life, invade my heart.

Show me what to do and I'll do it.

I felt this real authentic

encounter with him.

I created this drive and this passion

to change because hesays I am your Father.

You're not fatherless.

- [Reporter] For the firsttime, Dana felt loved.

She never returned tothe stage and went on

to earn her Bachelor's Degree in Science

and became a registered nurse.

Today she works in full-time ministry

and is married to Rocky, a youth pastor.

Dana tells her story in her book titled,

Surrendered Showgirl.

She reaches out to womenin the sex industry

through her ministry,Lion's Beauty Queens.

- God is so great.

I mean, if he could takea messed up girl like me

that was in that deep of a pit,

and he could somehowmiraculously reach down

and says, girl, I've got you.

I'm gonna pull you out of this thing.

If he can do that for me,he can do that for anyone.

- The glory of God.

The splendor of God.

She felt like somethingshe'd never felt in her life.

She felt the power of God.

All that stuff in thesex industry was nothing

compared to feeling the power of God.

He is awesome and when hisShekinah glory appears,

when the glory of God appears, it eclipses

everything you've everheard or ever known.

It is wonderful, it is glorious,

it is the power of Almighty God.

He is the author of everything.

He is, as she found out, Dana found out,

he's the real father.

He said I'm the one

about whom all the familieson earth are named.

I am the father.

And Jesus said, my Father in heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

He's our father.

He is the author of all of us.

He brought us all into being.

And Dana realized that.

And the glory of theLord came into her life.

And all the rest of it that she'd had

and all the money and allthe stuff that went on

and all the heartache,was eclipsed, it was gone.

Now, I don't know if you'vebeen sexually molested.

I don't know if you'vehad property problems.

I don't know if you've beenabandoned by your parents.

I don't know whetheryou've had a bad marriage.

I don't know whether you've had a husband

who beat you up.

I don't know whether you've had a wife

who was unfaithful to you.

I don't know what's going on in your life.

But I'll tell you something.

The glory of God will eclipse all of that.

It'll give you a newhope and a new promise

and a new song.

And your heart will bethrilled at what God has done.

And if you want that I wantyou to pray with me right now.

Got a short time, right now.

Just bow your head and pray these words.

Jesus, pray with me, Jesus,

I want you Lord, I need you Lord.

I need you Lord.

Please forgive me.

Come into my heart, wash away my sin.

Live your life in me.

And from this moment on, I'm yours.

Thank you Lord.

You've heard my prayer.

And if you prayed with me that prayer

I want to give you a little booklet.

It's called A New Day.

I want to give yousomething and I want you

that you just made that decision.

I gave my heart to Jesus.

And I want to send youthis little booklet,
