The 700 Club – October 9, 2019

October 10, 2019


>>>THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM IS
SPONSORED BY CBN.>>>TODAY, AMERICA’S MENTAL
HEALTH CRISIS.>>THAT’S JUST A SIN, IF YOU
ASK ME.>>AND IT’S GETTING WORSE.
WHAT’S BEHIND THE BEDLAM?>>LOS ANGELES IS THE EPICENTER
OF THIS CRISIS.>>AND HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
>>THESE ARE TERRIBLE DISEASES BUT PEOPLE CAN GET BETTER.
>>>PLUS –>>GOD IS WITH US.
>>THE CREATOR OF VEGGIE TALES. BILL FISHER PREVIEWS THE NEWEST
EPISODES AND HIS BRAND-NEW BIBLE FOR KIDS ON TODAY’S “700
CLUB.”>>>WELCOME, FOLKS, TO THIS
EDITION OF THE “700 CLUB.” NO WAY, THAT’S THE PRESIDENT’S
MESSAGE TO HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI.
THE WHITE HOUSE WILL NOT COOPERATE IN THE IMPEACHMENT
PROBE. THE DEMOCRATS STRIKE BACK WITH
A SUBPOENA. NEW DETAILS EMERGE ABOUT THE
FIRST WHISTLEBLOWER. SO WHAT’S NEXT?
I’M GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE LEGAL CONSEQUENCES OF WHAT’S
BEING CALLED IMPEACHMENT. WE HAVE THE DETAILS OF THIS
ESCALATING FIRE STORM.>>Reporter: IN AN EIGHT PAGE
LETTER TO HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI, THE WHITE HOUSE
DECLARED IT WILL NOT COOPERATE WITH THE IMPEACHMENT PROBE.
YOU HAVE DESIGNED AND IMPLEMENTED YOUR INQUIRY IN A
MANNER THAT VIOLATES FUNDAMENTAL FAIRNESS AND
CONSTITUTIONALLY MANDATED DUE PROCESS, WROTE WHITE HOUSE
COUNSEL PAT SIP ILONE. PRESIDENT TRUMP CANNOT ADMIT
HIS ADMINISTRATION TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS PARTISAN
INQUIRY IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES. NANCY PELOSI SAYS THE MOVE
AMOUNTS TO AN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE.
SIMPLY ANOTHER UNLAWFUL ATTEMPT TO HIDE THE FACTS, PELOSI SAID
IN A STATEMENT. THE U.S. AMBASSADOR TO THE
EUROPEAN UNION WAS ISSUED A SUBPOENA AFTER THE STATE
DEPARTMENT DIRECTED HIM NOT TO TESTIFY TO THE COMMITTEE
EARLIER TUESDAY. SONDLAND IS OF INTEREST BECAUSE
OF WHAT HE KNEW ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION INTO JOE BIDEN
AND HIS SON AND THE HOLDUP OF AID TO UKRAINE.
TUESDAY SCHIFF REVEALED DETAILS ABOUT A TEXT EXCHANGE INVOLVING
SONDLAND AND OTHERS.>>WE KNOW FROM THE TEXT
MESSAGES THAT AMBASSADOR SONDLAND WAS IN DISCUSSION WITH
UKRAINIAN COUNTERPARTS, WITH FELLOW DIPLOMATIC PERSONNEL AND
THE PRESIDENT.>>Reporter: TEXTS SHOW ANOTHER
U.S. DIPLOMATE TO UKRAINE WAS CONCERNED, BUT SONDLAND TEXTED
THE PRESIDENT WAS CLEAR, NO QUID PRO QUO.
HOUSE REPUBLICANS ARE DEFENDING THE PRESIDENT.
>>WHAT WE SEE IN THIS IMPEACHMENT IS A KANGAROO COURT
AND CHAIRMAN SCHIFF IS ACTING LIKE A MALICIOUS CAPTAIN
KANGAROO.>>Reporter: AND AS THE
IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY CONTINUES, FORMER G.O.P.
REPRESENTATIVE TREY GOWDY IS CONSIDERING JOINING THE
PRESIDENT’S LEGAL TEAM AS OUTSIDE COUNSEL.
MEANWHILE, NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT THE WHISTLEBLOWER WHO SET
OFF THE IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY. THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER REPORTS
THAT THE INSPECTOR GENERAL SAYS THE WHISTLEBLOWER HAD A
PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE OF THE DEMOCRATIC
CANDIDATES IN THE 2020 ELECTION.
CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.>>I TOOK A LOOK AT THE
CONSTITUTION. I WANT YOU TO SEE WHAT IT SAYS.
THIS IS WHAT THE CONSTITUTION SAYS ABOUT IMPEACHMENT.
ARTICLE ONE, SECTION 2, THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SHALL
CHOOSE THEIR SPEAKER AND OTHER OFFICERS AND SHALL HAVE THE
SOLE POWER OF IMPEACHMENT. NOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THAT
CERTAIN LEGAL SCHOLARS HAVE SAID AND I AGREE WITH THEM,
THAT THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS NEEDS TO BE THE WHOLE HOUSE,
THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES SHALL HAVE SOLE POWER OF
IMPEACHMENT, NOT ADAM SCHIFF, NOT THE SPEAKER.
NOW WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS THE SPEAKER, IN A CLEARLY PARTISAN
MANNER CALLING FOR AN IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY WITHOUT
TAKING A VOTE IN THE HOUSE. SO SHE DOES NOT HAVE THE
SUPPORT OF THE HOUSE. MINORITY MEMBERS HAVE NOT BEEN
ALLOWED TO SPEAK. THE LAST TIME THAT WE HAVE HAD
ONLY TWO IMPEACHMENTS AND IN BOTH INSTANCES THERE WAS A
BIPARTISAN AGREEMENT, DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS, TO GET THE
THING TOGETHER. THIS ISN’T SOMETHING THAT
SHOULD BE DONE ON A PARTISAN FASHION AND CERTAINLY NOT SOME
COMMITTEE CHAIRMAN LIKE ADAM SCHIFF.
SO THAT’S THE WAY IT IS. NOW, ONCE AGAIN, THE HOUSE HAS
THE POWER, ALL THE HOUSE. THERE HAS TO BE A VOTE IN THE
HOUSE SO THE PRESIDENT IS SAYING YOU GET A VOTE, YOU GET
EVERYBODY ON RECORD AND THEN WE WILL GIVE YOU — WE WILL
CONSIDER IF YOU’RE LEGITIMATE. UNTIL THAT, ALL IT IS IS THE
SPEAKER AND A COUPLE OF COMMITTEE CHAIRS.
IT’S NOT VALID ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION, IN MY OPINION.
>>>IN OTHER NEWS, SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM HAS CALLED FOR A
PRAYER FOR THE KURDS HAS TURKEY IS GETTING READY TO INVADE.
JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE ON THAT STORY FROM OUR CBN NEWS BUREAU
IN WASHINGTON.>>Reporter: TURKEY BUILDING UP
FORCES ON THE BORDER OF A KURDISH ENCLAVE IN NORTHEAST
SYRIA. THE COUNTRY’S DEFENSE MINISTER
SAYS THEY ARE PREPARING FOR AN INVASION.
MEANWHILE, THE KURDISH MILITIA IS GETTING READY TO DEFEND THE
TERRITORY. ABOUT 50 AMERICAN FORCES PULLED
OUT OF THE AREA MONDAY AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCED THE
U.S. WON’T STAND IN THE WAY OF TURKEY’S MOVE.
THAT’S LED TO CRITICISM FROM REPUBLICAN LAWMAKERS AND
EVANGELICAL LEADERS. TONY PERKINS SERVES AS THE
CHAIR OF THE U.S. COMMISSION ON INTERNATIONAL RELIGIOUS
FREEDOM. HE SAID IT’S CRUCIAL TO DEFEND
THE TERRITORY’S FLEDGLING DEMOCRACY WHICH PUTS AN
EMPHASIS ON RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.>>RELIGIOUS FREEDOM OF THE
AMERICAN SORT, MEANING THAT YOU CANNOT ONLY BELIEVE A CERTAIN
WAY BUT YOU CAN PRACTICE THAT FAITH AND CHANGE YOUR FAITH,
WHICH IS VERY UNIQUE. OUTSIDE OF ISRAEL AND THE
MIDDLE EAST.>>TUESDAY THE WHITE HOUSE HELD
A SECURITY BRIEFING ON THE SITUATION FOR HOUSE AND SENATE
LEADERS AND ANNOUNCED TURKEY’S PRESIDENT WILL VISIT WASHINGTON
NEXT MONTH.>>>LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I
HAVE CALLED FOR RECOGNITION, A TRUMP DECLARATION OF THE
INDEPENDENCE OF KYRGYZSTAN. THE KURDS HAVE 35 MILLION
PEOPLE. THEY ARE THE ONLY MAJOR ETHNIC
GROUP, AND THIS IS THE TERRITORY THEY WOULD HAVE, AND
DOWN IN THAT MAP BEFORE YOU IS SOMETHING CALLED KIRKUK.
KIRKUK IS ONE OF THE MOST PROLIFIC OILFIELDS IN THE
WORLD. IT HAS BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF
BARRELS OF OIL IN RESERVES AND THE PRODUCTION IS SOMETHING IN
THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF 500,000 BARRELS A DAY.
THE PRESIDENT THINKS THE KURDS ARE JUST FREE LOADERS AND THEY
DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY. THE TRUTH IS, THEY HAVE PLENTY
OF MONEY IF IT’S MADE AVAILABLE TO THEM.
AND THAT WOULD BE A BREAK, IF YOU WILL, ON THE AMBITIONS OF
THE ISLAMIC GROUP IN TURKEY. IT WOULD HOLD BACK THE RUSSIANS
FROM COMING IN. IT WILL BLOCK THE SYRIANS FROM
— EXCUSE ME, THE SYRIANS FROM ASSAD FORCES AND ALSO IRAN,
WHICH IS A THREAT. THE KURDS CAN DEFEND
THEMSELVES. THEY ARE OUR ALLIES, OUR
FRIENDS AND WE ABSOLUTELY CANNOT ABANDON THEM.
IT WOULD BE SHOCKING. AND SENATOR GRAHAM HAS CALLED
FOR A DATE OF PRAYER BUT HE SAID SO COURAGEOUSLY WE WILL
HAVE NOBODY STANDING WITH US IF WE ABANDON THOSE PEOPLE WHO
FOUGHT BESIDE US. NOW THE QUESTION THAT RISES
BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT IS WHO IS A MAN AND WHO IS A WOMAN.
JOHN.>>PAT, THE RISE OF
TRANSGENDERRISM IS COMPLICATING LAWS ON SEX DISCRIMINATION.
THE SUPREME COURT HEARD ARGUMENTS ON THE ISSUE TUESDAY.
AT THE CORE OF THE CASES IS WHAT THE WORD SEX MEANS WHEN IT
COMES TO THE LAW. IN THE PAST SEX DISCRIMINATION
LAW HAS ALWAYS REFERRED TO MALE AND FEMALE.
THE ACLU’S ARGUMENT BEFORE THE COURT WOULD END GENDER SPECIFIC
POLICIES IN THE WORKPLACE, INCLUDING SEPARATE SHOWERS,
BATHROOMS AND DRESS CODES FOR MEN AND WOMEN.
THE JUSTICES SEEM TO EXPRESS CONCERN WITH THAT POSITION.
SAYS WOMEN’S IN PRISONS AND SHELTERS ARE SCARED THEY WILL
BE FORCED INTO INTIMATE QUARTERS WITH TRANSGENDER MEN.
>>WOMEN IN DOMESTIC SHELTERS ARE FILING SUIT OVER THE FACT
THAT SUDDENLY THESE WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN SO HURT ARE NOW
HAVING TO SHARE SHOWERS AND COMMON SPACE WITH MEN, AND SO
THIS IS A SERIOUS ISSUE.>>THE DECISIONS IN THESE CASES
ARE EXPECTED TO BE RELEASED IN 2020.
>>>THE LEFT LEANING POLICIES OF DEMOCRATIC LEADERS HAS
CAUSED SOME TO BEGIN LEAVING THE PARTY INCLUDING ONE FORMER
DEMOCRAT WHO IS LEADING A GRASSROOTS CAMPAIGN ENCOURAGING
THOSE WHO FEEL ABANDONED BY THE PARTY TO JUST WALK AWAY.
CBN’S JENNA BROWDER SAT DOWN WITH THE FOUNDER OF THE
MOVEMENT.>>Reporter: WHAT WOULD IT TAKE
FOR YOU TO WALK AWAY FROM YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE?
YOUR FRIENDS, EVEN SOME OF YOUR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS.
THAT’S WHAT BRANDON STRZOK DID WHEN HE DECIDED TO LEAVE THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY.>>NEVER LOSE FAITH THAT PEOPLE
CAN CHANGE.>>Reporter: THAT’S HIS STORY.
>>IF I CAN CHANGE, ANYONE CAN CHANGE.
>>Reporter: NOW AN OUTSPOKEN ADVOCATE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP,
STRZOK WAS ONCE A LIFELONG DEMOCRAT.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND.
>>I LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY AND A FORMER LIBERAL, A FORMER
DEMOCRAT MY ENTIRE LIFE.>>Reporter: HE SAID THINGS
CHANGED AFTER THE 2016 ELECTION.
>>I WAS ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED AND I THINK KIND OF HORRIFIED IN
TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW COULD ANYONE VOTE FOR THIS TERRIBLE
PERSON. AND I WAS GOING ON SOCIAL MEDIA
CONSTANTLY ASKING THIS QUESTION.
AND THAT’S WHEN FINALLY SOMEBODY REACHED OUT TO ME,
JANUARY OF 2017, WITH A SOCIAL MEDIA CLIP THAT VERY CLEARLY
DEMONSTRATED HOW CNN AND SOME OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA OUTLETS
HAD BEEN TO DISHONEST AND ISOLATED THESE MOMENTS OUT OF
CONTEXT AND CREATED A NARRATIVE SURROUNDING DONALD TRUMP AND
HIS SUPPORTERS, WHICH WAS COMPLETELY UNTRUE.
>>Reporter: AFTER A YEAR OF REFLECTION AND RESEARCH, STRZOK
SAYS HE LEFT THE DEMOCRATS, THEN IN 2018 —
>>SO I CREATED SOMETHING CALLED THE WALK AWAY CAMPAIGN
ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO TELL THEIR OWN STORIES AND CREATE
THEIR OWN TESTIMONIALS ABOUT WHY THEY TOO ARE WALKING AWAY
AND WHAT THEY ARE WALKING AWAY FROM.
AND IT JUST EXPLODED.>>WHEN I LISTENED TO THESE
POLITICIANS TODAY, IT’S CRAZY.>>THE DEMOCRAT PARTY NEVER
REALLY, REALLY, REALLY FELT RIGHT.
>>I MEAN, AT THIS POINT WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
PEOPLE WHO HAVE JOINED THIS MOVEMENT AND TENS OF THOUSANDS
OF VIDEO AND WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS FROM PEOPLE WHO
JUST FEEL THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS BECOME TOO EXTREME,
HAS BECOME TOO HATEFUL, TOO DIVISIVE, AND THEY DON’T WANT
IT ANYMORE.>>Reporter: STRZOK SAYS HE AND
HIS TEAM ARE GETTING OUT ON THE ROAD AHEAD OF 2020.
>>WE DO THE BLACK AMERICANS TOWN HALL, HISPANIC AMERICANS,
LGBT AMERICANS. WE ARE TALKING TO GROUPS WHO
ARE TYPICALLY VOTING DEMOCRAT IN LARGE BLOCKS AND SAY YOU
HAVE A CHOICE.>>Reporter: THEY ARE NOT
TRYING TO MAKE ALL THESE PEOPLE REPUBLICANS BUT TO GET THEM TO
STEP BACK AND CONSIDER WHY THEY VOTE THE WAY THEY DO.
IN WASHINGTON, JENNA BROWDER, CBN NEWS.
>>THANKS, JENA.>>>PAT, HE’S GOT AN
INTERESTING STORY.>>VERY INTERESTING STORY.
NOW WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A QUESTION OF WHAT DO YOU CALL
THE LAW OF UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES.
IT SEEMED THAT PEOPLE WHO WERE MENTALLY ILL SHOULD NOT BE
LOCKED UP. SO WE PASSED THE LAW THAT SAYS
THEY SHOULD BE SET FREE. SO THAT’S NICE.
SO WE SET THEM FREE. SO WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
WENDY?>>WELL, UP NEXT 11 MILLION
AMERICANS ARE MENTALLY ILL. HOARDS OF THEM ARE HOMELESS AND
LIVING ON THE STREETS. THE REAL SHOCKER, THAT’S COMING
UP.>>>PLUS, A PRISONER OF PAIN IN
HER OWN HOME FOR YEARS AFTER TWO FAILED KNEE SURGERIES.
SO WHY IS SHE BACK ON THE ROAD AGAIN?
YOU HAVE TO SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT.
>>>IN ENGLAND THE HOME FOR THE INSANE WAS CALLED BEDLAM AND WE
HAVE THE TERM NOW, THIS BEDLAM, WHICH IS A PLACE OF UTTER
CONFUSION. BEDLAM IN AMERICA, AND THERE
ARE NOW HOARDS OF HOMELESS PEOPLE LIVING ON OUR STREETS.
MANY SUFFERING FROM SCHIZOPHRENIA, BIPOLAR DISORDER
AND SUICIDAL DEPRESSION. WHAT CREATED THIS CRISIS?
AND WHAT’S THE WAY OF TURNING IT AROUND?
LORIE JOHNSON HAS SOME OF THE ANSWERS.
>>Reporter: TODAY’S HOMELESS CRISIS CAN POSSIBLY BE TRACED
BACK TO THE LAST BILL SIGNED BY PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY.
IN 1963 THE COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH ACT CLOSED AMERICA’S
INSANE ASYLUMS. WHILE THIS LAW HELPED TRANSFORM
THE OFTEN BARBARIC TREATMENT OF THE MENTALLY ILL, IT’S ALSO LED
TO UNFORESEEN PROBLEMS.>>GOOD INTENTIONS AND I THINK
THAT’S A GREAT EXAMPLE OF THE INSTITUTIONIZATION.
>>Reporter: PSYCHIATRIST KENNETH ROSENBERG SAYS THE SAD
CONSEQUENCE IS PEOPLE WITH THE SAME ISSUES OFTEN GO UNTREATED
TODAY. THAT’S SOMETHING THAT WE REALLY
HAVE TO CORRECT.>>Reporter: ABOUT 11 MILLION
AMERICANS HAVE A SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS, SUCH AS SCHIZOPHRENIA,
BIPOLAR DISORDER, SUICIDAL DEPRESSION OR SEVERE PTSD,
WHICH CAN RENDER THEM UTTERLY DYSFUNCTIONAL.
IN HIS BOOK, BEDLAM, AN INTIMATE JOURNEY INTO AMERICA’S
MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS, THE AUTHOR AND FILMMAKER SAYS THESE
PEOPLE PING-PONG BETWEEN THE STREET AND A JAIL CELL.
>>LOS ANGELES IS THE EPICENTER OF THIS CRISIS.
LARGEST MENTAL INSTITUTION IN THIS COUNTRY IS THE L.A.
COUNTY JAIL. THE LARGEST COLLECTION OF
PEOPLE OUTSIDE IS ON SKID ROW. IT IS KIND OF LIKE A DAY
HOSPITAL, IF YOU WILL, FOR PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS MENTAL
ILLNESS.>>Reporter: AN ESTIMATED EIGHT
OUT OF 10 PEOPLE LIVING ON THE STREETS STRUGGLE WITH
ADDICTION. FOR THE MENTALLY ILL, THAT’S
LIKE POURING GASOLINE ON A FIRE.
>>WE KNOW THERE ARE FACTORS THAT CAN BRING A MENTAL ILLNESS
OUT OF THE WOODWORK, OPEN A WINDOW, IF YOU WILL, IN SERIOUS
MENTAL ILLNESS THAT WOULD OTHERWISE BE CLOSED.
WHAT ARE THOSE FACTORS? POVERTY, TRAUMA, GOING TO JAIL,
AND, ABOVE ALL ELSE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE.
>>Reporter: ALTHOUGH THIS PERFECT STORM MAY SEEM
HOPELESS, DR. ROSENBERG OFFERS CONCRETE SOLUTIONS STARTING
WITH COMMUNITY TREATMENT CENTERS.
>>THESE ARE TERRIBLE DISEASES BUT PEOPLE CAN GET BETTER.
THEY MAY NOT BE CURABLE BUT THEY ARE VERY TREATABLE.
>>Reporter: ALSO EXPANDING THE NUMBER OF MENTAL HEALTH COURTS.
>>WE CAN MANDATE TREATMENT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE TOO SICK TO KNOW
THAT THEY NEED IT.>>Reporter: AND DEVELOPING
DRUGS THAT WORK BETTER WITH FEWER SIDE EFFECTS.
>>THE MEDICINES WE ARE USING FOR SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS
TODAY ARE 70 YEARS OLD. I THINK THAT’S ABSOLUTELY
TERRIBLE. GOD FORBID YOU HAVE BREAST
CANCER, GOD FORBID YOU HAVE COLON CANCER.
YOU’RE GOING TO GET A TREATMENT THAT’S TWO OR 3 YEARS OLD, NOT
ONE THAT’S 70 YEARS OLD.>>Reporter: FOR FAMILY AND
FRIENDS OF SOMEONE GOING THROUGH THIS, DR. ROSENBERG
SAYS EATING HEALTHY, LOWERING STRESS, SLEEPING WELL,
MINIMIZING DRUG USE WHERE POSSIBLE, AND FEELING CONNECTED
ALL HELP MINIMIZE MENTAL ILLNESS.
DOCTORS SAY PSYCHOTIC ILLNESS TYPICALLY COMES ON BETWEEN AGES
17 AND 21, AND THE LONGER THE BRAIN GOES UNTREATED, THE WORSE
IT BECOMES. SO EARLY INTERVENTION IS KEY.
>>AND THERE ARE PEOPLE IN YOUR COMMUNITY, IN YOUR CHURCH, IN
YOUR SYNAGOGUE WHO COULD HELP YOU THINK THIS THROUGH.
THE CLERGY ARE PROFICIENT IN UNDERSTANDING HOW TO DEAL WITH
THIS, HOW TO SEND YOU TO THE PROPER HEALTHCARE PROVIDERS.
PEOPLE WHO WILL BE CONSISTENT WITH YOUR UNSPIRITUAL
PRACTICES.>>Reporter: SO WHILE AMERICA
GRAPPLES WITH ISSUES BOTH PAST AND PRESENT IN TREATING THE
MENTALLY ILL, THERE’S STILL HOPE BY MAKING IT A PRIORITY
AND USING A VARIETY OF TREATMENTS.
>>>CBN MEDICAL REPORTER LORIE JOHNSON IS WITH US.
LORE, CAN THE POLICE DO ANYTHING TO TREAT A MENTALLY
IMPAIRED PERSON?>>WELL, IT’S GREAT THAT YOU
BROUGHT THAT UP. I’M GLAD YOU WENT STRAIGHT
THERE, BECAUSE THE POLICE ARE THE ONES WHO ARE BEING TASKED
WITH DEALING WITH THESE PEOPLE. THAT’S WHO IS TAKING CARE OF
OUR MENTALLY ILL, THE POLICE ARE BEING CALLED — NO, THEY
DON’T HAVE ANY TRAINING. POLICE AREN’T SOCIAL WORKERS.
THEY DON’T HAVE ANY TRAINING WITH MENTALLY ILL PEOPLE.
THEY GOT INTO LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT
REASON AND FIND THEMSELVES BEING FIRST RESPONDERS FOR
PEOPLE WHO ARE ON THE EDGE MENTALLY.
>>WELL, THESE PEOPLE ARE OVERRUNNING THE STREETS OF
PLACES LIKE SAN FRANCISCO. IT’S JUST TERRIBLE.
ALL KINDS OF DISEASES. THEY LIVE ON THE STREETS.
THEY USE THEIR BODILY FUNCTION OUT ON THE SIDEWALKS AND THERE
ARE NEEDLES AND INFECTION. IT’S A HORRIBLE THING.
CONGRESS FORCED THIS, FORCED THE PEOPLE TO LET THEM OUT OF
JAIL.>>RIGHT, IT’S TRUE.
BACK WHEN PRESIDENT KENNEDY WAS PRESIDENT, HIS SISTER ROSEMARY
HAD A LOBOTOMY AND WAS INSTITUTIONALIZED SO HE HAD A
POLITICAL REASON BUT A PERSONAL REASON FOR DOING WHAT HE DID
AND IN MANY CASES IT WAS THE RIGHT DECISION.
THERE WERE A LOT OF AWFUL THINGS GOING ON IN THE INSANE
ASYLUMS. WHAT’S HAPPENED NOW IS THESE
PEOPLE WHO HAVE ISSUES THAT USED TO BE PUT INTO INSANE
ASYLUMS, THEY ARE JUST RUNNING AROUND ON THE STREETS AND WHEN
THEY COMMIT PETTY CRIMES LIKE SHOPLIFTING DISORDERLY CONDUCT,
PUBLIC DRUNKENNESS, THEY GET PICKED UP, PUT IN JAIL, THEY
MISS THEIR PAROLE HEARINGS, THEY MISS THEIR COURT DATES,
ONE, TWO, THREE STRIKES AND THEN THEY ARE IN PRISON.
SO NOW THE MENTALLY ILL ARE INCARCERATED, BASICALLY, AND
IT’S ALMOST AS IF BEING MENTALLY ILL HAS BECOME A
CRIME.>>WHAT’S THE TREATMENT?
I MEAN, YOU’VE GOT SOMEBODY WHO HAS WRITTEN A BOOK ABOUT HOW TO
TREAT THEM. HOW DO WE DO IT?
>>THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION. THERE ARE TREATMENTS THAT WORK.
WE NEED TREATMENTS THAT ARE BETTER, BUT WHAT PEOPLE NEED TO
DO NOW IS GET TREATED AND WHAT WE ARE SEEING NOW IN MASS ARE
PEOPLE NOT BEING TREATED. PEOPLE LIVING ON STREETS.
WE AS A SOCIETY FEEL LIKE PEOPLE SHOULD BE AUTONOMOUS.
THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WANT TO GET
TREATMENT. IF YOU HAVE CANCER IT’S UP TO
YOU WHETHER OR NOT YOU WANT TO GET CHEMOTHERAPY.
@PEOPLE HAVE MENTAL ILLNESS DECIDING FOR THEMSELVES WHETHER
THEY WANT TO BE TREATED BUT ONE OF THE HALLMARKS OF SERIOUS
MENTAL ILLNESS IS THEY DON’T REALIZE THEY ARE SICK AND SO AS
A SOCIETY, WE DO NEED TO INTERVENE AND HELP THEM.
>>WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCHIZOPHRENIA AND
BIPOLAR? IS BIPOLAR A NEW NAME FOR
SCHIZOPHRENIA? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE OR IS
THERE A DIFFERENCE?>>GREAT QUESTION.
BIPOLAR AND UP AND DOWN. MANIA WHERE YOU CAN’T SLEEP AND
YOU HAVE ALL THESE MANIC THOUGHTS AND YOU’RE RUNNING AT
100 MILES PER HOUR AND THEN YOU CRASH AND YOU SLEEP FOR DAYS
AND YOU GO INTO A DEEP, DEEP DEPRESSION.
SCHIZOPHRENIA IS DIFFERENT WHERE YOU’RE OFTEN HEARING
VOICES, HEARING COMMANDS. YOU ARE DISCONNECTED WITH
REALITY. SOMETIMES WHEN YOU’RE
SCHIZOPHRENIC, YOU HAVE MANIC EPISODES OR PSYCHOTIC EPISODES
WHERE YOU KIND OF GO IN AND OUT OF IT.
AND THIS BOOK RIGHT HERE, BEDLAM, IT’S BRAND-NEW, IT’S
COMPLETELY UP TO DATE AND THIS IS A BOOK THAT I RECOMMEND TO
EVERYONE, ESPECIALLY THE ONE IN FIVE FAMILIES WHO HAVE SOMEONE
IN THEIR FAMILY WITH A SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS.
BUT THEN THOSE PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS IN
THEIR FAMILY, THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO UNDERSTAND IT, WHAT
THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING THROUGH, BECAUSE WE ALL INTERACT WITH
THEM OUT ON THE STREETS AND WHAT NOT.
AND IT TALKS ABOUT AS A SOCIETY, WHAT WE NEED TO DO.
BUT ALSO AS A FAMILY MEMBER, WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FOR YOUR
SICK RELATIVE RIGHT NOW.>>WHAT ARE THE WARNING SIGNS?
I’VE GOT AN AUNT, YOU KNOW, NOT AN AUNT BUT A NEPHEW WHO IS —
WHAT SIGNS SHOULD I LOOK FOR?>>THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION.
THESE THINGS USUALLY COME ON IN THE TEENAGER YEARS AND IN THE
LOW 20s, BEING DISCONNECTED FROM REALITY AND IT’S SO
OBVIOUS WHEN THEY ARE TALKING NONSENSE AND WHEN THEY ARE
HEARING VOICES. HEARING VOICES IS A BIG RED
FLAG, ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE HEARING VOICES FROM INANIMATE
OBJECTS LIKE A TELEVISION THAT’S TURNED OFF OR IF YOU’RE
HEARING COMMANDS FROM WITH INSIDE YOUR HEAD AND YOU KNOW
THAT IT’S NOT FROM YOU AND IT’S TELLING YOU TO DO SOMETHING
HORRENDOUS LIKE BURN YOUR FLESH, WHICH IS WHAT ONE OF THE
PEOPLE HERE — AND SO THEN THERE ARE PRACTICAL ADVICE —
THERE’S PRACTICAL ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO, HOW TO HELP PEOPLE
YOU KNOW WHO ARE SUFFERING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS, WHAT YOU CAN
DO.>>HOW EXTENSIVE ARE WE TALKING
ABOUT?>>WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE
WHO ARE LIVING ON THE STREET, ABOUT A THIRD OF THEM AND
THAT’S A VERY MODEST ESTIMATION, WHO ARE DEALING
WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS. WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT
DEPRESSION, WHICH IS VERY SERIOUS, BUT I’M TALKING ABOUT
SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS, BIPOLAR, SCHIZOPHRENIA AND THEN
YOU AMPLIFY THAT, ABOUT TWO THIRDS OF PEOPLE LIVING ON THE
STREETS WHO ALREADY ADDICTED AND THERE’S HUGE CROSSOVER.
>>DO THEY KILL PEOPLE, THOSE VOICES, THEY START — ARE THEY
SOME OF THE SHOOTERS WHO –>>ANOTHER GREAT QUESTION.
AND THIS — AND BY THE WAY, SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE QUESTIONS
ABOUT SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS. IT’S CONFUSING WHEN YOU SEE
PEOPLE WALKING DOWN THE STREET, YOU KNOW, TALKING TO
THEMSELVES. WHEN YOU SEE PEOPLE, YOU’RE
LIKE, WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS? HOW DID THEY GET HERE?
THIS EXPLAINS IT. BUT IT IS — SOMETIMES PEOPLE
DO HURT OTHER PEOPLE. MOST OF THE TIME THEY DON’T
HURT OTHER PEOPLE BUT THEY ARE VERY MUCH IN DANGER OF HURTING
THEMSELVES AND PLUS JUST THE CHAOS AND THE MISERY THAT THEY
CAUSE WITHIN A FAMILY. IT’S NOT THEM.
IT’S THEIR ILLNESS. AND THERE ARE WONDERFUL
TREATMENTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE AND PEOPLE DO NEED TO BE
TREATED, AND WE NEED TO GET A LITTLE BIT BETTER WITH THE
TREATMENTS.>>WELL, LORIE, THANK YOU.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE GOT TO
DEAL WITH BECAUSE IT’S OUT THERE SO MUCH.
AND THIS LAW SEEMS SO BENIGN WHEN IT WAS PASSED.
THESE PEOPLE WERE KEPT IN MENTAL INSTITUTIONS, THEREFORE
WE SHOULD LET THEM GO. OKAY.
THAT’S FINE. THEN WHAT DO WE DO WITH THEM
AFTER WE LET THEM GO WHEN THEY ARE ON THE STREET, THEY ARE
SUFFERING. FAMILIES ARE BEING TORN APART.
PEOPLE ARE DISEASED AND THEY ARE ON THE STREETS AND IT’S A
HORRIBLE SITUATION. BUT WE AS A NATION NEED TO DO
SOMETHING FOR THE MENTALLY ILL AND THIS BOOK — WHEN I THINK
OF THE TERM BEDLAM, IS MEANS CHAOS AND BEDLAM WAS THE PLACE
WHERE THESE INSANE PEOPLE WERE KEPT IN ENGLAND AND IT WAS
CHAOTIC AND THIS IS WHAT THE TITLE — THAT’S WHAT BEDLAM
MEANS.>>AND THIS IS VERY EASY BOOK
TO READ.>>IT IS.
>>IT IS A REAL PAGE TURNER AND GREAT INFORMATION FOR EVERYONE,
ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE MENTAL ILLNESS IN YOUR FAMILY.
>>YOU ALWAYS BRING US CUTTING EDGE AND WONDERFUL THINGS.
GOD BLESS YOU. THANK YOU.
>>GOD BLESS.>>YOU WENDY, WHAT YOU GOT
NEXT?>>>STILL AHEAD, WHATEVER
HAPPENED TO BOT THE TOMATO AND LARRY THE CUCUMBER?
THEY ARE BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER.
WHAT’S NEW WITH VEGGIE TALES, THAT’S COMING UP.
>>>BUT FIRST, NO STOPPING HER NOW, WHAT TURNED A FORMER SHUT-
IN INTO A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY AND HOW DID IT HAPPEN IN AN
INSTANT? STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT.
>>>TAKING BRISK WALKS, GREETING AT CHURCH, SHOPPING
AND GOING TO THE MOVIES, NO PROBLEM NOW FOR LYNN SETA BUT
FOR YEARS SHE WAS CRIPPLED BY PAIN AND A PRISONER IN HER OWN
HOME. WHAT WAS ONE THING THAT SHE
COULD DO AND HOW DID THAT HELP HER GET HEALED?
TAKE A LOOK.>>IN 2015 I WAS UNABLE TO
WALK. I WAS ACTUALLY DRAGGING MY LEG.
I COULDN’T BEND MY LEG. I COULD ONLY JUST EXTEND MY LEG
STRAIGHT OUT. I WAS UNABLE TO SIT.
I SAW A DOCTOR AND WHEN I DID, I WENT AND HAD THE SURGERY,
TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT AND BECAUSE I HAD WAITED SO LONG TO
HAVE THE SURGERY, THEY HAD TO DO SOME EXTENSIVE KNEE
REPLACEMENT. AFTER MY FIRST KNEE SURGERY THE
PAIN RETURNED. THEN I HAD TO HAVE ANOTHER
REVISION SURGERY. 15 DAYS LATER THE PAIN WAS —
IT WAS BACK. I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND IT.
IT MADE ME FEEL DEPRESSED. I FELT HOPELESS BECAUSE I WAS A
VERY ACTIVE PERSON. I WAS VERY LIVELY.
I LOVED TO GO. I TRAVELED, I DID A LOT OF
THINGS. AND NOW I COULDN’T.
I WAS CAPTIVE IN MY OWN HOUSE. ALL I DID WAS WATCH TV.
THAT’S WHEN I STARTED WATCHING THE “700 CLUB.”
IT GAVE ME HOPE. ON JUNE 21st, 2019 I WAS
WATCHING THE “700 CLUB” AND ABOUT 10 MINUTES BEFORE THE
SHOW ENDS, GORDON, HE WAS GETTING READY TO PRAY —
>>AND BY HIS STRIPES YOU ARE HEALED.
SO WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO AGREE WITH YOU, ALL YOU NEED TO
DO IS TOUCH.>>AND I HAD ALREADY BEEN
PRAYING. AND I TOLD GOD THAT IF YOU’RE
THE SAME GOD THAT THE WOMAN WITH THE ISSUE, SAID IF I CAN
TOUCH THE — THEN I WANT YOU TO PROVE TO ME THAT YOU CAN DO THE
SAME FOR ME. GOD SAID TO LAY YOUR HANDS ON
YOUR KNEES.>>YOU HAVE TENDONS OUT OF
PLACE IN YOUR LEFT KNEE IS GOD IS PUTTING THEM BACK INTO
PLACE, TAKING ALL THE SWELL, ALL THE PAIN, ALL THE
DISCOMFORT AWAY FROM YOU RIGHT NOW.
IN JESUS NAME, BE HEALED, BE MADE WHOLE.
>>AND I JUST STARTED JUMPING AND I JUST STARTED PRAISING
GOD. I SAID THAT’S ME, THAT’S ME,
THAT’S ME. THE PAIN WAS GONE IN AN INSTANT
AND I WAS JUST — I WAS ASTONISHED.
I CAN MOVE MY LEG. MY LEG IS NOT POPPING AND
NOTHING. I’M TELLING YOU, I KNOW THAT HE
DID IT FOR ME. UNDESERVING, THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT.
WHEN YOU KNOW YOU’RE UNDESERVING, YOU BETTER SERVE
GOD. THE GOD THAT I SERVE.
I AM READY TO GO NOW. MY HOME IS NOT A PRISON
ANYMORE. I LOVE BEING A GREETER AT MY
CHURCH. BEING ABLE TO BE PHYSICALLY
ABLE TO STAND AND WELCOME PEOPLE INTO THE HOUSE OF GOD
AND SHOWING THEM THAT GOD LOVES THEM.
I LOVE GOING OUT TO EAT AND SHOPPING WITH MY BEST FRIEND
AND A MALL, YOU HAVE TO GO IN AND OUT OF THE STORES AND I
USED TO DREAD THAT BECAUSE IT WAS SO MUCH WALKING.
AND NOW I LOOK FORWARD TO THAT BECAUSE I’M NOT IN ANY PAIN.
GOD STILL PERFORMS MIRACLES. MY LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS
CHRIST, IS A HEALER. I KNOW THAT TO BE TRUE TODAY.
I KNOW IT.>>SHE KNOWS IT BECAUSE SHE IS
— SHE SAW IT HAPPENED AND IF IT HAPPENED TO HER, IT CAN
HAPPEN TO ANYBODY.>>AMAZING.
>>>I’VE GOT SOMETHING HERE THAT CAME IN FROM INDIA.
THIS SAYS QUOTE I’M WRITING THIS E-MAIL FROM INDIA AND I
WANT TO PRAISE GOD FOR A MARVELOUS MIRACLE.
LAST JULY WENDY — AFFECTED THEIR ARMS AND HANDS.
IT WAS EXACTLY THE ISSUE I HAD. GOD CLEARLY HEALED ME AND I AM
DOING WELL BY HIS GRACE. FROM INDIA.
>>PRAISE GOD. PAMELA FROM WICHITA, KANSAS IS
A RETIRED RN WHO SUFFERED FROM CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE FOR
ALMOST FIVE YEARS. ONE DAY SHE HEARD YOU PRAY, GOD
IS HEALING HEART FAILURE. SHE BELIEVED IT.
WHEN PAMELA WENT BACK TO HER DOCTOR, HE REPORTED THE
CONDITION WAS GONE AND HE DIDN’T KNOW WHY.
WE KNOW WHY.>>FOLKS, WE BELIEVE IN GOD.
THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE, THE GOD WHO CREATED THE WORLD AND
THIS IS NOTHING FOR HIM. IF HE MADE YOU, HE CAN SURE FIX
YOU SO LET’S GO TO THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, THE ONE WHO LOVES
YOU AND HE SAID, HITHER TO YOU, THERE’S NOTHING IN MY NAME, ASK
AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE FILLED.
WENDY AND I ARE GOING TO JOIN HANDS RIGHT NOW.
WHATEVER YOU NEED IS RECEIVING. I JOIN WITH MY SISTER IN CHRIST
AND WE PRAY FOR PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE THAT THE POWER OF GOD
COME INTO THEIR LIVES RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT.
SOME OF YOU HAVE GOT A SWELLING IN YOUR KNEE, I BELIEVE IT’S
YOUR LEFT KNEE, AND IT’S ALL SWOLLEN UP.
PUT YOUR HAND OVER IT AND THE SWELLING WILL GO DOWN IN THE
NAME OF JESUS. WENDY.
>>YOU’RE A YOUNG GIRL AND YOU’VE BEEN PRAYING AND ASKING
GOD TO DELIVER YOU FROM SCOLIOSIS, GOD HAS HEARD YOUR
PRAYERS AND YOU ARE BEING HEALED IN JESUS NAME.
>>THANK YOU, JESUS.>>THANK YOU, LORD.
>>A BABY NOT GETTING PROPER BLOOD AND OXYGEN.
LAY HANDS ON THAT BABY RIGHT NOW AND GOD IS GOING TO HEAL IT
IN THE NAME OF JESUS.>>THERE’S A MAN — YOU’VE GOT
YOUR HAND ON THE SIDE OF YOUR FACE, IT’S A TOOTHACHE THAT HAS
GOTTEN INFECTED. YOU WENT TO THE DENTIST BUT NOW
IT’S INFECTED AND GOD IS TOUCHING YOU RIGHT NOW.
YOU ARE BEING HEALED. THAT TOOTH IS GOING TO BE
SAVED. IN JESUS NAME.
>>SERIOUS SKIN RASHES GOING AWAY, ALL OVER YOUR BODY, RUB
YOUR HAND AND THE SKIN RASH HAS LEFT YOU.
MAY THE POWER OF GOD COME INTO YOUR LIFE.
MAY YOU KNOW HIS HEALING TOUCH. MAY THE GLORY OF THE LORD BE
MANIFESTED TO YOU IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.
>>AMEN.>>AND AMEN.
>>>STILL AHEAD, OUR MOST POPULAR SEGMENT ON THE PROGRAM,
YOUR QUESTIONS WITH HONEST ANSWERS.
>>MEGHAN SAYS I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A BABY BUT MY HUSBAND
WANTS TO WAIT. HOW CAN WE GET ON THE SAME PAGE
WITH THIS DECISION? STAY TUNED FOR PAT’S ADVICE
COMING UP.>>>PLUS, IT’S NOT TOO EARLY
FOR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AND WE HAVE THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT

>>GOD IS WITH US HERE IN THE TOUGH TIMES AND HERE TO END THE
TOUGH TIMES.>>PHIL HAS ALREADY WRITTEN THE
LAUGH AND LEARN BIBLE FOR KIDS. TEACHING THEM GOD’S PLAN AND
HELPING THEM FIND THEIR OWN PLACE IN IT.
>>PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO THE “700 CLUB” PHIL VISCHER.
GOD BLESS YOU. GOOD TO SEE YOU.
>>THANK YOU. GOOD TO BE BACK.
>>YOU WERE JUST 25 YEARS OLD WHEN YOU CREATED VEGGIE TALES.
DID YOU EVER DREAM YOU WOULD SEE 65 MILLION COPIES?
>>NO. [ LAUGHTER ]
>>MY GOAL WAS TO MAKE A SHOW AND SEE IF I COULD SELL JUST
ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO MAKE ANOTHER SHOW.
>>WOW.>>THAT’S REALLY ALL I WANTED
TO DO. I GREW UP IN SUNDAY SCHOOL AND
I GREW UP PLAYING WITH COMPUTERS AND I GREW UP PLAYING
WITH FILM MAKING AND ANIMATION. I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT DO
ALL THESE FIT TOGETHER IN ANY WAY.
WHAT I LEARNED IN SUNDAY SCHOOL, MY GRANDFATHER WAS A
RADIO PREACHER SO I HAD THIS BACKGROUND OF MINISTRY AND I
LOVED ANIMATION AND I DIDN’T SEE PEOPLE IN MINISTRY DOING
ANIMATION. I THOUGHT, CAN YOU DO THIS FOR
GOD IN SOME WAY? AND IT WAS, YOU KNOW, WATCHING
MTV IN HIGH SCHOOL AND THINKING, TECHNOLOGY, SO COOL
AND THE STORYTELLING IS SO COOL BUT THE VALUES ARE NOT SUNDAY
SCHOOL VALUES. CAN I PUT SUNDAY SCHOOL VALUES
INTO THE SAME TECHNOLOGY AND THAT’S WHAT LED TO VEGGIE
TALES.>>AFTER YEARS OF SUCCESS AND
65 MILLION COPIES, IN 2003 YOU LOST EVERYTHING.
WHAT HAPPENED?>>YEAH.
WHEN YOU HAVE A LOT OF SUCCESS AT A VERY YOUNG AGE, YOU OFTEN
DON’T HAVE THE WISDOM TO MANAGE THE SUCCESS, AND I DECIDED
THAT, YOU KNOW, SINCE GOD WAS BLESSING MY EFFORTS, HE WOULD
JUST KEEP BLESSING WHATEVER I DID.
LIKE I WAS THE ANOINTED ONE AND I WAS GOING TO SAVE THE WORLD’S
CHILDREN FROM HOLLYWOOD. AND SO I WANTED TO BE WALT
DISNEY. SO I GREW TOO FAST.
I LAUNCHED TOO MANY PROJECTS, TRIED TO DO TOO MANY THINGS TOO
FAST –>>ONE OF YOUR DISTRIBUTORS
SUED –>>YES, THERE WAS A LAWSUIT
WITH A DISTRIBUTOR. I PUT MYSELF IN THE HOSPITAL.
I WAS WORKING SO HARD. SO REALLY WASN’T A GOOD
SITUATION. SO WHAT I THOUGHT INITIALLY WAS
THAT GOD WOULD SHOW UP AND MAKE THIS WORK NO MATTER WHAT.
I REALIZED GOD WAS STANDING BACK AND LETTING IT FALL APART
TO SAVE ME FROM MYSELF.>>HOW DID YOU COPE?
>>I STARTED READING THE BIBLE AND PRAYING.
I JUST — I DIDN’T — I WASN’T UNHAPPY WITH GOD.
I WAS UNHAPPY WITH MY THEOLOGY. CLEARLY I BELIEVED THAT MY WORK
WAS MORE IMPORTANT TO GOD THAN I WAS.
>>WOW.>>AND I WAS LIKE, GOD WAS
STEPPING IN TO SAY, NO, YOU ARE MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAN WHAT
YOU COULD EVER DO FOR ME. SO I WILL LET WHAT YOU’RE DOING
FOR ME FALL APART TO SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SELF SO THAT YOU CAN
PUT YOUR FAITH IN JUST ME.>>WOW.
THAT WILL PREACH RIGHT THERE. JUST THAT.
YOUR STORY DOES HAVE A HAPPY ENDING AND THAT’S WHY YOU’RE
BACK HERE. TELL US HOW YOU WERE ABLE TO
CREATE THE 18 BRAND-NEW EPISODES OF THE VEGGIE TALES.
>>YOU KNOW, THE VERY LAST SCENE OF RAIDERS OF THE LOST
ARC WHEN THE ARC IS PUT IN A BOX AND PUT IN A BIG GOVERNMENT
WAREHOUSE NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN.
THAT’S WHERE I THOUGHT BOB AND LARRY HAD GONE.
THEY ARE NOW OWNED BY UNIVERSAL, NBC UNIVERSAL OWNS
THE COMPANY THAT OWNS VEGGIE TALES.
AND THE TRINITY BROADCAST REACHED OUT TO UNIVERSAL,
SAYING CAN WE WORK TOGETHER ON SOMETHING AND THEY AGREED AND
BOTH OF THEM REACHED OUT TO ME THEN AND SAID, WOULD YOU HELP
US MAKE NEW VEGGIE TALES EPISODES THAT FEEL LIKE THE
ORIGINAL VEGGIE TALES FROM WAY BACK WHEN YOU STARTED?
>>NOW YOU’RE A CONSULTANT ON VEGGIE TALES?
>>WHICH IS FINE WITH ME. YOU KNOW, I LAMENTED LOSING
CONTROL OF THEM AND I WAS REALLY BEATING MYSELF UP ABOUT
LOSING CONTROL OF THE VEGGIES AND THEN GOD SAID TO ME ONE DAY
WHILE I WAS PRAYING, DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU WERE EVER IN
CONTROL?>>WOW.
>>AND I REALIZED, OF COURSE NOT.
SO I DON’T NEED TO BE IN CONTROL OF SOMETHING FOR GOD TO
USE IT. AND I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BRING
MY CREATIVITY BACK TO VEGGIE TALES.
EVEN WHILE IT’S OWNED BY NBC UNIVERSAL AND EVEN WHILE IT’S
THE — THE NEW SHOWS ARE BEING FUNDED BY TBN, THEY RECOGNIZE
THAT YOU’RE THE GUY THAT MADE THE SPECIAL IN THE FIRST PLACE.
WE WANT YOU TO COME BACK AND MAKE IT SPECIAL AGAIN.
>>TALK ABOUT THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT, THAT’S THE NEW
ONE THAT’S COMING OUT THIS MONTH, RIGHT?
>>IT IS, YES. THE FIRST THING WAS THE NEW
CHRISTMAS SPECIAL. I WAS STRUCK AFTER THE SANDY
HOOK SHOOTINGS. THEY HAPPENED TWO WEEKS BEFORE
CHRISTMAS. AND A LOT OF PEOPLE AFTER THOSE
SHOOTINGS, THEY TOOK DOWN THEIR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS BECAUSE
THEY SAID, HOW CAN WE CELEBRATE AT A TIME LIKE THIS?
>>RIGHT.>>AND I WROTE A PIECE AT THE
TIME WHERE I SAID, WELL, THIS IS EXACTLY WHEN WE NEED TO
CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS BECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT GOD ENTERING
INTO THE EVIL TO MAKE IT RIGHT. THIS IS THE PROMISE OF A NEW
HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH WHERE EVERYTHING HAS BEEN MADE RIGHT.
SO WHEN SOMETHING BAD HAPPENS IS EXACTLY WHEN WE WANT TO
CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS THE MOST. AND THAT’S WHAT THIS VEGGIE
TALES STORY IS ABOUT FOR KIDS. NOT DEALING WITH THINGS THAT
BAD, BUT, YOU KNOW, KID SIZED BAD THINGS.
HOW CAN WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS WHEN WE ARE HAVING A BAD DAY?
YOU KNOW, YOUR PARENT JUST LOST THEIR JOB, PEOPLE ARE BEING
MANNER TO YOU AT SCHOOL, HOW CAN WE CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS?
THAT’S EXACTLY WHEN WE WANT TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS BECAUSE
CHRISTMAS IS ABOUT GOD ENTERING OUR STORY TO TAKE THE BAD AWAY.
>>I LOVE THAT. GOD ENTERING OUR STORY.
WELL, YOU’VE ALSO WRITTEN A CHILDREN’S BIBLE AND THIS THING
IS BIG. RIGHT HERE.
IT’S HEAVY.>>IT’S HEAVY.
IT’S HEFTY.>>LAUGH AND LEARN BIBLE FOR
KIDS AND IT IS SO BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED.
TELL US WHAT’S COOL ABOUT THIS?>>YEAH.
OFTEN IN SUNDAY SCHOOL WE GIVE KIDS SNAPSHOTS FROM THE BIBLE.
SO YOU GET NOAH’S ARK AND THEN ABRAHAM AND THEN JESUS AND WHAT
YOU DON’T GET IS HOW DOES THIS FIT TOGETHER TO TELL ONE BIG
STORY AND THAT’S WHAT KIDS NEED.
KIDS WANT TO BE A PART OF A BIG STORY.
THAT’S WHY THEY ATTACH TO STAR WARS OR THE AVENGERS OR HARRY
POTTER. THEY WANT TO FEEL LIKE THE
WORLD HAS A BIG STORY AND THAT THEY CAN BE A PART OF IT.
AND WHEN WE TURN THE BIBLE INTO TIPS FOR BEING A BETTER KID OR
HAVING A BETTER MARRIAGE OR A BOOK OF RULES, WHICH IS EVEN
LESS APPEALING FOR YOUNG KIDS, THEY DON’T SEE THEMSELVES IN
THE STORY. SO THIS IS 52 BIBLE STORIES
STARTING FROM GENESIS GOING THROUGH REVELATION TO GIVE KIDS
THE BIG PICTURE OF THE BIBLE SO THEY CAN SEE IT’S ACTUALLY A
STORY. IT’S THE STORY OF GOD AND WHAT
HE’S DONE FOR US AND THEN THEY CAN FIND THEIR OWN PLACE IN
THAT STORY, THEY CAN BE A PART OF IT.
AND THAT’S WHAT BRINGS THEIR FAITH TO LIFE.
>>AND THIS WOULD BE A GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFT TOO, JUST
SAYING. AND IT’S OUT, RIGHT?
>>IT’S OUT. RIGHT NOW.
CAME OUT LAST MONTH.>>IT’S OUT FOR CHRISTMAS.
PHIL, GOD BLESS YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
THIS IS VERY EXCITING.>>YOU’RE WELCOME.
>>FOR MANY PEOPLE. I KNOW CAN’T WAIT TO GET IT.
THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT DVD WILL BE RELEASED ON OCTOBER
22nd, NOT LONG FROM NOW. TO FIND OUT HOW TO GET A COPY
OF THE LAUGH AND LEARN BIBLE FOR KIDS, YOU CAN GO TO
CBN.COM.>>>WELL, UP NEXT, WE HAVE GOT
YOUR E-MAIL. THIS SAYS CAN I BE A GOOD
QUESTION WITHOUT GOING TO CHURCH?
YOUR QUESTIONS, HONEST ANSWERS FROM PAT RIGHT AFTER THIS.
>>>WHEN ELLEN BERGMAN BECAME A WILLOW, SHE WAS OVERWHELMED BY
THE BELLS. AT FIRST SHE THOUGHT SHE NEEDED
TO WALK BACK HER GIVING, BUT INSTEAD, ELLEN STEPPED IT UP.
>>CBN PARTNER ELLEN BERGMAN OF BRANSON, MISSOURI IS A PEOPLE
PERSON. IN HER YOUNGER YEARS THAT
PASSION HELPED GET HER ELECTED TO THE STATE LEGISLATURE.
>>I HIT THE DOORS AND I REMEMBERED SAYING, IF THEY LIKE
YOU, THEY WILL VOTE FOR YOU. AND THAT’S REALLY WHAT IT
AMOUNTED TO. RAN THREE TIMES AND WON THREE
TIMES.>>HER HUSBAND PAUL WAS HER
BIGGEST ADVOCATE BUT HE LOST HIS BATTLE WITH CANCER IN HIS
50s. THAT LEFT ELLEN TO MANAGE
EVERYTHING ALONE, INCLUDING HER FINANCE.
>>PAUL TOOK CARE OF THE BILLS AND I WASN’T THE ONE GOING
AROUND, I’M GOING TO PAY THIS. I JUST DIDN’T WANT TO BE
BOTHERED WITH IT. WELL I HAD TO BE BOTHERED WITH
IT AFTER HE DIED AND THEN IT BEGAN TO OVERWHELM A LITTLE
BIT.>>THEY HAD TITHED TO CHURCH
AND OCCASIONALLY DONATED TO OTHER PLACES.
NOW AS A WIDOW SHE DIDN’T THINK SHE COULD KEEP GIVING LUCKY
THAT.>>I DID THINK THOSE THOUGHTS
AND IT WAS AFTER HE DIED. WELL, I BETTER PULL BACK HERE.
>>BUT THOSE THOUGHTS WERE SHORT LIVED AND INSTEAD OF
CUTTING BACK HER GIVING, SHE CHOSE TO INCREASE IT.
>>AND I JUST THOUGHT, THAT’S IT.
I’M NOT GOING TO STOP ANY GIVING.
AND I KNOW THAT GOD WILL BLESS IT.
AND HE WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL OF MY NEEDS.
ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES IN GLORY, BY CHRIST JESUS, AND I
HAVE TO REALLY RELY ON THAT VERSE A LOT.
THAT GOD IS STILL THE SAME GOD AND HE IS A HUSBAND TO THE
WIDOW, THE BIBLE SAYS.>>IN THE MIDST OF HER LOSS,
SHE HELPED CBN BUILD A WELL IN INDIA TO HONOR HER LATE HUSBAND
PAUL.>>WHEN THEY STARTED SHOWING
ALL OF THESE EXAMPLES OF WHAT THEY WERE DOING OVERSEAS, BOY,
I KNEW, THAT’S THE PLACE TO PLANT YOUR SEED.
BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO COVER EVERYTHING.
AND IF YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN ALL THE WORLD, THERE’S STILL
PLENTY GOING ON RIGHT HERE IN OUR COUNTRY THAT’S HELPING
MANY, MANY PEOPLE THAT REALLY NEED IT.
AND THEY ARE OUT THERE. OPERATION BLESSING IS OUT
THERE.>>TODAY ELLEN CONTINUES TO
MAKE GIVING AT CBN A PRIORITY AND GOD CONTINUES TO TAKE CARE
OF HER.>>I CAN SAY HE HAS MET ALL OF
MY NEEDS. IF YOU WILL TITHE AND DO WHAT
THE WORD SAYS, GOING TO BE PROTECTED.
AND GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL. THAT’S ALL I CAN SAY IS HE’S
BEEN FAITHFUL.>>GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL.
HE IS FAITHFUL. THE BIBLE SAYS GIVE AND IT WILL
BE GIVEN UNTO YOU, AND ELLEN FUND IT TO BE THE TRUTH.
SO LISTEN TO HER. SHE IS A GOOD ROLEMODEL AND WE
WOULD LIKE YOU TO BE A “700 CLUB” MEMBER.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE? 65 CENTS A DAY.
WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT HUGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY.
BUT IF EVERYBODY DOES SOMETHING TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE A HUGE
DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD. $20 A MONTH AND YOU’RE A “700
CLUB” MEMBER. THIS IS CALLED THE TRANSFORMING
WORD, PROVERBS, THE VERSES FOR WIDOM, ANOINTING FAVOR.
PICK UP YOUR PHONE AND CALL IN. IT’S REAL SIMPLE,
1-800-700-7000. 1-800-700-7000. TOLL-FREE. CALL IN.
SAY YOU CAN COUNT ON ME. I WANT TO BE A “700 CLUB”
MEMBER. OKAY.
GO.>>YOU READY?
GO. HE’S READY.
MEGAN SAYS I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A BABY BUT MY HUSBAND
WANTS TO WAIT A LITTLE LONGER AND HAVE A MORE STABLE JOB.
WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR OVER A YEAR AND HE WILL BE STARTING A
JOB IN MINISTRY NEXT YEAR. HOW CAN WE GET ON THE SAME PAGE
WITH THIS DECISION?>>WELL, I THINK WHAT YOU NEED
TO DO IS TO RECOGNIZE THAT IF A BABY COMES INTO YOUR LIFE, IT
WILL TOTALLY CHANGE EVERYTHING YOU DO.
IT WILL CHANGE YOUR HABITS, YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH
OTHER. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR SOCIAL
LIFE. IT WILL CHANGE YOUR ECONOMICS.
IT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING. AND I THINK YOUR HUSBAND IS A
GOOD MAN WHO UNDERSTANDS WHAT IS BEING ASKED.
YOU JUST SAID I WANT A BABY. BIG DEAL.
GET A PUPPY OR SOMETHING. BUT BABIES ARE A BIG THING.
AND I THINK IN THIS CASE YOU SAY HOW DO WE GET ON THE SAME
PAGE? I THINK YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO
YOUR HUSBAND. THE LORD HAS GIVEN HIM WISDOM
AND HE’S SUPPOSED TO BE THE LEADER IN THE FAMILY AND I
THINK WHAT HE SAYS IS, I THINK WE OUGHT TO WAIT UNTIL WE GET A
LITTLE BIT MORE ESTABLISHED BEFORE WE START BUILDING A
FAMILY. AND I THINK HE’S RIGHT.
>>GOOD ADVICE. KAREN SAYS HI THERE, CAN I BE A
GOOD CHRISTIAN WITHOUT GOING TO CHURCH?
I FREQUENTLY WATCH SERMONS ONLINE AND READ THE BIBLE
REGULARLY BUT WITH MY WORK I’M OFTEN UNABLE TO ATTEND CHURCH.
>>YOU KNOW, EACH — ACCORDING TO HIS OWN, BUT THE BIBLE SAYS
DON’T FORESAKE THE ASSEMBLY OF YOURSELF TOGETHER.
THERE’S SOMETHING NICE ABOUT MEETING TOGETHER IN FELLOWSHIP
WITH ONE ANOTHER. YOU CAN SUPPORT EACH OTHER.
YOU CAN SHARE EACH OTHER’S BURDENS AND YOU CAN HAVE PEOPLE
PRAYING FOR YOU. SO IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A
FORMAL CHURCH SERVICE. IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT ON SUNDAY
MORNING, MAYBE YOU CAN HAVE A THURSDAY NIGHT PRAYER MEETING
OR SOMETHING. BUT YOU SHOULD GET TOGETHER
WITH PEOPLE, IT SEEMS LIKE TO ME.
SAY CAN YOU BE A GOOD CHRISTIAN?
WELL, THE CHRISTIANITY IS BETWEEN YOU AND THE LORD.
YOUR LIFE WITH GOD IS WHAT IS IMPORTANT.
BUT I THINK ASSEMBLING YOURSELF WITH OTHERS IS AN IMPORTANT.
>>AMEN. THIS VIEWER SAYS, DEAR PAT, I
HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA, ANXIETY AND
DEPRESSION DISORDER IN THE PAST.
I AM IN MY 20s AND ON MEDICATION RIGHT NOW BUT I PRAY
TO BE TOTALLY HEALED ONE DAY. MY QUESTION IS, DO YOU THINK I
CAN MANIFEST A FULL HEALING AND RECOVERY?
I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR HEALING FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS.
IF GOD MADE ME, HE CAN ALSO SET ME FREE, RIGHT?
>>OH, YOU’RE TELLING THE TRUTH AND I AGREE WITH YOU.
>>YES.>>I THINK YOU NEED TO START
DECLARING VICTORY AND I THINK YOU SPEAK IT, YOU KNOW.
A MAN SHALL EAT GOOD BY THE FRUIT OF HIS LIPS.
YOU SPEAK IT INSTEAD OF SAYING I’M ASKING, I’M ASKING FOR,
WILL I BE FREE? YOU SPEAK IT.
BUT THERE ARE SO MANY COMPLICATED THINGS.
WE ARE — WE TALKED ABOUT MENTAL PROBLEMS AND YOU’VE GOT
SCHIZOPHRENIA, YOU’VE GOT THESE OTHER DISEASES AND I THINK,
WELL, YES, THE LORD CAN SET YOU FREE.
THE LORD WILL. BUT YOU NEED TO DECLARE IT IN
THE MEANTIME, STAY WITH YOUR MEDICATION.
I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT.>>MICKEY SAYS, HI, A FEW YEARS
AGO I BUILT A CONVENIENCE STORE SO MANY ROADBLOCKS I HAD TO
OVERCOME. I OFTEN WONDERED IF SATAN WAS
TRYING TO STOP ME FROM SUCCESS OR IF IT WAS GOD TO HELP ME SEE
I WAS MAKING A BIG MISTAKE OR MAYBE IT’S LIFE.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF GOD IS WARNING YOU?
>>WELL, THE BIBLE SAYS LET THE PEACE OF GOD BE AN UMPIRE IN
YOUR HEART AND WHEN YOU HAVE THAT PEACE, YOU MOVE FORWARD.
WHEN THE PEACE LIFTS, WHEN THAT ASSURANCE IN YOUR HEART LIVES
AND YOU GO TO GO BACK AND SEE AM I GOING THE RIGHT WAY OR
NOT, YOU DON’T JUST NEED TO BREAK DOWN BARRIERS.
YOU NEED TO PRAY FOR GOD OVER THE WAY AHEAD OF YOU AND HE
SAYS I’LL GO BEFORE YOU. SO TRUST HIM TO DO THAT.
BUT LET THE PEACE OF GOD BE YOUR UMPIRE.
THAT’S THE ANSWER TO THAT ONE. ALL RIGHT?
>>GOOD WORD. ALL RIGHT.
THIS SAYS MANY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD HAVE A MISCONCEPTION
THAT CHRISTIANITY IS A WHITE MAN OR WHITE WOMAN’S RELIGION.
HOW CAN WE AS BELIEVERS TRY TO HELP PEOPLE IN THE WORLD
OVERCOME THIS MISCONCEPTION?>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW WHO
YOU’RE TRYING TO INFLUENCE, BUT THERE’S SOME OF THE MOST GODLY
PEOPLE YOU’VE EVER SEEN WHO ARE CHINESE IN SINGAPORE.
>>AFRICAN –>>BISHOPS IN AFRICA.
BUT JESUS CHRIST WASN’T A, QUOTE, WHITE MAN.
HE WAS A MIDDLE EASTERNER, YOU KNOW.
>>THAT’S RIGHT.>>AND SO WE SERVE A JEWISH
RABBI, HE’S THE LORD AND HE WASN’T A WHILE ANGLO-SAXON, ALL
RIGHT?>>PATRICK SAYS I HAVE AN AUNT
THAT SEEMS TO BE OBSESSED WITH HOW MUCH MONEY I HAVE IN MY
LOCKBOX. I DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH
SAVING MONEY BUT I DON’T FEEL I SHOULD BE OBSESSED WITH MONEY.
SHE HELPS ME TO COUNT IT TO SEE WHAT AMOUNT OF MONEY I SAVED.
LAST TIME SHE COUNTED IT WAS 1000.
SHE CLAIMED THAT IS NOTHING. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME TO
FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH HER AND OF COURSE WE DON’T
KNOW HOW OLD PATRICK IS.>>I HAVE NO IDEA BUT SHE IS
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. $1000 IS NOTHING.
I’M –>>IF YOU’RE 5 YEARS OLD IT IS.
SO WE DON’T KNOW HOW OLD PATRICK IS.
>>SHE IS –>>IF YOU’RE LIKE 10 YEARS OLD
AND SAVED $1000 BUT WE DON’T KNOW HOW OLD PATRICK IS.
IF HE’S 40, THAT’S NOT VERY MUCH.
>>I DON’T KNOW WHY SHE IS COUNTING YOUR MONEY BUT I’M
REDOING THE SECRET KINGDOM ABOUT FINANCES AND A FEW
DOLLARS MULTIPLIED OVER AND OVER AGAIN WILL AMOUNT TO A
WHOLE LOT SO YOU NEED TO SAVE IT AND YOU NEED TO BUILD IT UP
AND YOU NEED TO GET IT TO COMPOUND INTEREST.
I DON’T THINK YOUR AUNT SHOULD BE COUNTING THE MONEY IN YOUR
LOCKBOX. THAT DOESN’T SOUND NORMAL TO
ME. THERE’S SOMETHING WRONG WITH
THAT. TODAY’S POWER MESSAGE IS FROM
THE BOOK OF JOHN. I HAVE COME THAT THERE MIGHT
HAVE LIFE AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY.
TOMORROW IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.
A GROUND BREAKING NEW TECHNIQUE TO TREAT ANEURYSMS, STROKES,
SPINAL COMPRESSION, FRACTURES AND MORE.
WHOA. YOU WON’T HEAR THAT ANYPLACE
EXCEPT ON THE “700 CLUB.” FOR WENDY AND ALL OF US, THIS
IS PAT ROBERTSON. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE AND WE
WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW. BYE-BYE.
>>>TOMORROW –>>HOW DID MY LIFE BECOME LIKE

  2. Sorry, reading scriptures has nothing to do with fun. It is life. Amen be blesseed in JESUS name amen

    It is like a home work you do ok. Reading scripture feeds the mind, the spirit and the soul. Amen and prevents the brain from being whipped out from existance in dead cells or dementia etc. Read scripture when needed, but fill a heart with the presence of god . Be blessed amen . Blessings cbn , and 700 club. AMEN

  3. There is hope Dr Caroline Leaf seen her at church conference neuro brain scientist studying mental illness and making a difference as she says everyone has a journey the mental health system is quick to label someone with disorders and give a pill which often makes people worse

  4. Sad thing is when you have a breakdown and get put one only contact there is at 8,00at night when they give you pill seen some people preaching and believers in Jesus locked up for that even young girls getting sexaully assaulted during night while staff sit on computers playing card games seen it with my own eyes lm glad l found Jesus and not medicated learnt your past doesn't define you and trust in Jesus he heals everything

  5. So occupation is all about oil. It's so sad. The wicked wealthy. The rich man and the eye of a needle. Praying always.

  6. For years the police have had their eye on me in 2013 they strap me to a hospital bed they treated me like shit they have bern doing this for years relentlessly I have been to several HOSPITALS and I have been TRESSPASSED from valley hospital its been constant harassment and arrests … They only want to torment they know I have no FAMILY or friends they know how stupid my family is they know they will only blame me and NOT open their eyes in jail I remember from way BACK I was always being shunned and mistreated 100 percent these evil people see that and instead of showing compassion I have been the
    Punching bag
    So called TARGET
    People ask me dumb ass questions
    Police are STILL in my face all these years
    Everyone is in this conspiracy like they are some type of clairvoyant they don't know shit but stupidity lol that's fact
    MY family blame me all these years when in all TRUTH I have
    BEEN PREYED ON
    …MY MOM IS OK WITH IT BECAUSE SHE HAS ALLOWED IT ALM THESE YEARS AND STILL SHE DOES NOTHING
    YOU SHOULD SEE WHAT I SEE ILL RECORD IT SO YOU SEE I PROMISE

  7. Not sure how he thinks "Kurdistan" can get its oil to market if the territory is taken from Iraq. Pipe it through Iran or Turkey ? LOL.
    He is so full of it, Turkey has 14 military bases inside this "Kurdistan" near its border with Iraq but he is silent on this. All he really cares about is keeping the Syria/Iraq border blocked for Israel.

  8. Davey and Goliath was Christians doing animation… was watching that in the sixties… it was my version of Superbook.
