The Red Cross Is Mapping Out Routes for Illegals to Cross the Border
"Debbie showed me this article on the Red Cross, and it's a little disturbing. It's the Red Cross has guides for U.S. bound migrants that have maps of the border, resources along the journey, lists of things to do when you encounter dangers along the highway. And it even goes to the extent of telling people like bring your contraceptives with you in necessary cases, Red Cross clinics and medical brigades will give them to you for free. So this appears to be like a how to be an illegal manual. Well, that's disturbing to the contraceptives. I mean, are they saying that they're going to get raped along the way so they may as well bring well, either that or, hey, listen, if you want to, I mean, who knows what they're saying, they appear to be just trying to make life easy and show people where to go. I mean, this is almost like a, you know, I mean, to the degree that crossing the border is an illegal act. This is to me no different than how to rob a bank. Yeah, no, it is. Right? Yeah. So, and these packets apparently come their stamped with the international committee of the Red Cross and the American Red Cross. So they show you what do they show you? Hotels and clinics and shelters. They have clearly defined lines that take you to various parts of El Paso, Texas, nogales, Arizona, I lived close to nogales. Met Gala in Texas. And so, and evidently all of this has also been funded by the U.S. government. By the Biden administration. Shocker. So the Red Cross apparently is part, gets grants from fema. The federal emergency. So what fema says, and again, this is all put into the garb of humanitarian. Well, you know, these guys are coming in and anyway, so we got to make sure they don't starve or you know when we drive to the valley and we see those big tubs of water. Yeah, that's agua. And so you're like thinking, um, why would they have that on the side there of the king ranch, which is like total desolation. There's nothing there. But they have these big tubs. Why? Because they're expecting for these illegals to walk through there and oh, you know, they need water, so there's agua.

Pastor Robert Jeffress: Christmas Isn't Just for Christians
"A pastor Jeffers I was reading the beautiful op-ed you wrote for Fox News, Christmas isn't just for Christians. Why is that? You know, I had a high school student in Orlando who watches our TV program, email me and said, what should I say to my classmates who keep disparaging Christianity and talking about all the evil that's been done in the name of Christianity? And I wrote back to her and this is the basis for the op-ed. I said, you know, you ought to go ahead and mate. You have some horrible things that have been done in the name of Christ, but many more good things have been throughout history, done in the name of Christ. I mean, think about it. Great works of art like the Sistine Chapel, great works of architecture like Notre-Dame, the founding of great colleges like Harvard and Yale, the printing press, all of these things. Benevolent organizations like the Red Cross and Salvation army, all of these things were created by followers of that baby born 2000 years ago in a feeding trial. And I think that's one reason Todd. The angels said that the shepherds becoming a Christ is good news of great joy for all the people. The whole world has benefited from the coming of Christ 2000 years ago. And of course, the main reason he came was to give us what we needed most to forgiveness of sins and that gift is available to everybody, bad does Catholics, Muslims, atheists, Jews. It's not just for some people, it's a gift for all people to receive. You know,

After a number of complaints, Airbnb will now let users see a total cost of nightly rates and fees rather than feeling duped when seeing off an expensive cleaning fees right before booking. Guests usually only see a nightly rate for a stay at a property worldwide. But The Wall Street Journal says a toggle switch will now display the entire cost before taxes. It's taken the company more than a year to review the way it lists fees after a lot of social media backlash during the pandemic, cleaning fees are often more than 100 bucks on top of service fees and taxes plus the original nightly rate.

"Dot org. It's morning edition from NPR news. I Mas makala than Washington. That I mean Martinez and Culver City, California. In eastern Kentucky, more than two dozen people are confirmed dead in the flooding that has swept away roads, bridges, businesses, and homes. The price we were staying at the water got up to our back door. And I recognized in the parking lot. And it didn't build in. We've lost everything. The Red Cross has been assisting in about a dozen shelters, a set up for survivors, misty Thomas is executive director, the western Kentucky chapter of the Red Cross, misty, welcome to the show. I know as part of Red Cross assistance efforts in eastern Kentucky, you visited some of the flooded communities. What have you seen? You know, we've just seen a lot of devastation, a lot of homes. Where I was yesterday in breath it county, the homes, the water has receded, but the homes are just full of sludge and mud. And driving through communities and talking to survivors and ensuring that they know that we're here and telling them what we're offering to help. And listening to their stories, validating their stories for them. And just hearing those horrific moments of them having to evacuate their home, knowing that everything they own is gone and that their lives were in danger in that moment. And that they were fleeing to safety. So yesterday they were back in their homes and they were taking these huge squeegees and just pushing the mud out the doors and their yards were full of the debris from the inside their lives. Everything their own outside piled up completely destroyed. And it's heartbreaking. It's heartbreaking to watch them have to go through that. Is there any way those homes are usable? 'cause I know there's rain coming very, very soon. Any chance those homes are usable for that, at least some shelter. You know, some of the homes, they could shelter in. There's no electricity in water in some of these areas, where I was yesterday the electricity was back on. So just depending on what that situation is for them, that would be to their discretion. But then some of the homes that we saw, there's absolutely no way they're going back in. So we're able to provide that sheltering need component for the communities. We saw about a 550 people overnight across 16 shelters that were supporting and partnering with other community members to have open. And we expect those numbers to increase in days to come. What's the biggest need right now? Sheltering food. And that's what we're working. We just want to make for sure that people have a safe place to stay. Especially with the expected heat coming, we want to make for sure that we have shelters open where they can find a cool place, a safe place to rest their head. We do have a shelter that is allowing pets, so that's a big deal for our families as we have a lot of people who those are that's part of their family. And so it's nice to be able to offer that as well. We're providing mills for them as well with we have partners that we're partnering with to make for so that's happening. And then we're also able to supply or we have volunteers that are helping assess medical needs, mental health needs, and then we have volunteers that work as spiritual leaders and their realm of their professions that volunteer for us. So we're able to offer that shoulder to cry on and lean in on. And then our health assessment, if they had to evacuate and they left behind medical equipment or prescriptions or eyeglasses were assessing those needs and making for sure those things that they need for survival, we are helping them restore right now in these moments. I know that western Kentucky just was hit with tornadoes, not that long ago and now eastern Kentucky with these floods. How's the Red Cross in your colleagues they're holding up right now? You know, we're a resilient group of people in Red Cross is a 141 years old, so we've been doing disaster for a really long time. And in that time, there's a lot of complexities. You know, we always say every disaster is different and it is. So we've learned to square with those curve balls pretty smoothly and we are doing really well and that's the great part about the Red Cross volunteers. We're trained to be able to be there and be that comfort for the survivors of the disasters we're working in and they do that beautifully. Missy Thomas is with the Red Cross assisting survivors in eastern Kentucky, misty, thank you. Thank you. In Ukraine technology plays a big role on the battlefield. Both sides use drones to try to gain an advantage by watching their adversaries movements from above. NPR's Jason beaubien spent time with a Ukrainian drone surveillance unit in southern Ukraine near Russian occupied parts of Carson. In a patch of trees between a freshly cut wheat field and a plot of iridescent sunflowers, Sasha is sitting in the back of a camouflaged van. He's watching a video feed of a drone, his team just sent into Russian occupied territory to check on a village. From the intelligence this morning. So we are flying there now to check what is in this populated place. Swell it. During peace times, this strip of trees would be a wind break between the agricultural fields. Now it's dotted with coffin sized pits for Sasha and his colleagues to dive into in case the Russians start shelling their mobile base. The groups of air intelligence are usually hunted because we are the eyes. What we see, you can't see with the binoculars. This Ukrainian drone unit is named Carlson after a flying character from a popular Swedish children's book. They've allowed us to visit them under the condition that we don't disclose their full names or location. They have various small drones that you can buy at an electronic store for a few $1000. On this day, they're operating their largest fixed wing drone, which they raise tens of thousands of dollars to purchase online. It looks like a miniature plane with a camera mounted on its nose. As the drone scans the village, Sasha says it appears most of the residents have fled. You can see the cows, you know, they do not belong to anyone anymore. Amidst the wandering animals and deserted houses, he spots what could be a dug in Russian tank. Sasha makes a note of its position. He says later, he'll review the high definition video recording being stored on board the drone, and zoom in closer on the potential tank. In this section of the front line, cell phone and GPS signals are being jammed by both the Russians and the Ukrainians. The Carlson team uses a mobile Starlink connection donated by Elon Musk's satellite based Internet company. If they see a potential target, they use the Starlink connection to communicate with other military units. Sometimes if we see the convoy, for example, we are in touch with artillery unit, and we give them the coordinate and they start shelling. The war in Ukraine is predominantly an artillery war, stretching for hundreds of miles along a front line in eastern and southern Ukraine, the head of the carlsen team calls artillery the fist of war in drones help that fist punch more accurately. The Carlson team is officially a territorial defense unit. It's made up of 23 volunteers, all men, mostly in their 30s from the nipro area. Prior to the Russian invasion, none of them had military experience. Everybody was sick. The commander of the unit who goes by the name Playboy used to run his own business. It is specialist. Sasha used to be a politician. Dennis pascoe, who is not part of the Carlson unit, trains Ukrainian soldiers on using drones, both for surveillance and in his words to drop explosives on the Russian's heads. Even if some of the drones are sold on Amazon as toys, he says this is serious dangerous combat. You need to be close to the front line so it's really dangerous and if enemy knows your position, you can be there. Drones can quickly and safely do what used to be the job of human reconnaissance squads. But Pasco says if a drone is caught by the enemy, it can give away a lot of information. It's have the jail position of the operator and it can keep history from the turning on and history of all the places where it was flying, where it

"red cross" Discussed on Cyber Security Today
"The international committee of the Red Cross is the latest victim of a supply chain cyberattack. The humanitarian agency said this week a sophisticated cyberattack against a provider hosting Red Cross servers compromise personal data and confidential information on more than 515,000 highly vulnerable people. These people were separated from their families due to conflict, migration and disaster, missing persons, and their families, and people in detention. The firm hit was a Swiss provider, the Red Cross uses to store data. The statement didn't say if the data was encrypted. The agency urges the hacker not to share sell leak or otherwise use the data. U.S. based marketing and commercial printing giant RR Donnelly has acknowledged corporate data was stolen by a hacker in December. According to the bleeping computer news site, it was a result of a ransomware attack by the Conti gang. It may be a coincidence, but the ransomware attack came just after Donnelly announced an agreement to be acquired by an asset management firm. Organizations in the U.S. are being warned not to fall for fishing messages that appear to come from the Department of Labor. Researchers at inky said this week, emails have been seen inviting employees to submit bids for ongoing government projects. The message has a PDF attachment that looks like it has been details and a button to be clicked on to access the government's procurement portal. However, the link in the button goes to websites that impersonate the Department of Labor. Victims are asked to log in using their Microsoft or business email password, which is captured by the crook. Two things to remember first, the U.S. government does not typically send out cold emails to solicit bids for projects. And second, employees should know it makes no sense to be asked to log in with email credentials to view a document on a completely different network. Finally, researchers at Kaspersky have discovered the third known firmware boot kit. The malware can hide in what's called SP one flash storage, outside a hard disk. It will launch before the operating system starts when a computer boots, making it hard to delete. It isn't clear how the sample Kaspersky saw infected a computer, but the malware was used to archive files and gather network information. One way to protect computers is to make sure they have windows secure boot capability and that its turned on. Remember later today that we can review podcast will be out. My guess will be former U.S. cyber diplomat, Christopher painter, who will talk about cyberattacks on Ukraine, negotiating with Russia and China, and the impending start of negotiations on an international cybercrime treaty. You can follow cybersecurity today on Apple podcasts. Google podcasts, or add a steer flash briefing on your smart speaker. Thanks for listening. I'm Howard Solomon..

"Sharif is with Scripps health We are selling folks to please donate if they can We just heard yesterday from the American Red Cross that they need people to donate They're also very short on staff as well which is also contributing to the national blood supply shortage And so the idea is to get as many people to donate as possible and also to rally some resources and working with the chief medical offers as well as we can get as much blood donated and processed as fast as we can The concern right now is that we have very limited blood supply and so we have massive transfusions going on which we had just on Monday We had two patients that needed massive transfusions because they were trauma patients that we may not have enough blood to fully resuscitate And that is something that's top priority even with a Macron and all the hospitalizations we're seeing my prior today is getting this word out and trying to get a solution to this because this affects everybody Just this morning I was rounding at mercy hospital and my trauma search and told me about a patient that was driving home 3 o'clock in the morning and was hit by someone driving the wrong way and he had a very big bleed and one of his arteries in his leg and needed immediate transfusion and he would have lost his leg And if you keep bleeding you can lose your life And if we don't have blood to resuscitate somebody in real time like that that is a huge loss in all of us So it affects everybody Never like this before we've got heard from our scripts blood banks team that they have never seen anything like this in over 30 years never seen those kind of issue Right now people can make an appointment to see the Red Cross blood dot org That's one side That's Red Cross and the other one is our own San Diego blood bank San Diego blood bank told us that they had canceled some donations and we have asked them to please let us know before they cancel because we need this We are if you imagine if we have one mass casualty event in San Diego lives will be lost And we absolutely can't have that if there's something that we can do So we're going to help Red Cross with staffing maybe from the National Guard or whoever we need to but we also need the donations This is something I'm an ER Doc And so I don't pay the part but this one is really really concerning for me Doctor ghazala sharifa Scripps health joined by clotting van gunka with a San Diego blood bank It has been officially declared that we are in a blood crisis for the first time in our country and what that means is blood levels are so low across the country that it's getting to the point where hospitals are starting to alter treatment for patients and starting to cancel elective surgeries because they're just not enough blood on the shelves In a good year wintertime is one of the hardest times to collect blood You know people are just getting done with holiday plans and getting back into school and things are just blood donation is not top of mind necessarily But now what we're seeing because of COVID-19 and specifically on a crime is that people are canceling their blood donation appointments because they are ill Companies and schools and civic organizations are canceling their blood drives And so it's all coming together for this perfect storm And it is creating a situation where we don't have enough blood across the country for hospital patients that.

Dr. William Lile Uses Modern Obstetrics to Support the Personhood of Pre-Born Babies
"Doctor Lyle, your organization and meeting you. I mean, it really affected me because I just thought you're in this world. You're in these trenches. So you take over this practice, you decide to end abortions in that area. I mean, has anyone ever thought of that before to go into an area and take over a place that does something like this? I've never heard of this as it seems like a brilliant strategy. Yeah, I mean, money, money has power money talks. I mean, there have been abortion clinics, which have actually been purchased by pregnancy resource centers there. You know, it's an active movement where you can just go in and take control. And that's what we do as far as education, as far as how we treat the pre born as patients. I mean, a lot of people don't realize that the mom even though she's an amazing life support system. Babies not part of her body. It's not her body. One of the things that we do, which is absolutely amazing is we can actually do blood transfusions directly to the baby. And we've done this at our hospital as early as 18 weeks gestation. It's like, well, why would you need to give a baby a blood transfusion? Because the mom sees the baby as a different person. And mom will actually send antibodies across the placenta attack the baby's blood because it's a different blood type and the baby's blood count will start to drop. And it can drop to the point where the baby will die on the inside unless we give the baby a blood transfusion. It's like, well, where do you get special baby blood? It's not special baby blood. That's just donating. Yeah. It's just donated at the Red Cross or one blood and we can take an ultrasound guy to go through the skin of the mom's belly through the wall of the uterus directly to the umbilical cord and just give the baby a lifesaving blood transfusion at 18 some weeks, you said? 18 weeks. When we've done that here at my hospital, but it's not just blood transfusions. We are now doing heart surgery at centers around the country at 22 weeks gestation. All right, this is where I mean, really, this is why I wanted you want to hear. This is unbelievable. That science has gotten to a level medical science where you can do heart surgery on a 22 year old 22 week old child in its mother's

"The quicker it is is going to be for our agents to to verify that emergency in gift any nation to the chain of command and we know some of these instruments situations can be very time sensitive right so you wanna ensure that you have the servicemembers first and last name rank branch of service if possible. The last four of that service members social in data as well as the date of birth the military unit address. Is there a phone number if this service member is deployed down rank. Is there a phone number to the red detachment if the service member just happens to be. Tdy or one of those geographical assignments where there is a phone number. Is there a phone number available. Also we're gonna need to know the name of the family member that emergency is involving. And what relationship is this family. Member family member contact information because this family member could be making their own medical decisions. The nature of the emergency is is. Is this person in the hospital is it is time sensitive is critical. Life expectancy an issue. Here where can the emergency be. Verify the contact number for the hospital. The funeral home is there a nurse. We can speak to the physician. That's attending to their family member. All of these are key pieces of information that the individual is going to need will make contact the hero care center in a give them more information. You can share the during that initial call the quicker. It is for us to get this information verified so that we can get the emergency message to the servicemembers chain of command and they can determine if the service member will be able to take emergency. Wow that's super helpful. So it's kinda think sometimes. No news is good news or less is more but obviously in this case especially red red cross. Notification more is more so let me let me recap make. Sure i got this because i was trying to capture it so an emergency happens a family member or a neighbor or whoever anybody can call and when they call they need to have i for the servicemember they need first last name rank branch date of birth last four of the social security. If possible if that person has a phone number the servicemember address down range the name of the family member and the relationship dealing with the emergency family member contact info nature emergency and wear that. Emergency can be verified. Get it all you got it. Alright look at me taking notes. I wrote it all out. 'cause i guess i wouldn't have thought of some of those things but having that in your hand or on your phone or on standby just knowing those things. Obviously he's gonna speed the process up because it's gonna especially what you mentioned you wanna if it's time sensitive or you know this is. This is really important in this. Could be a truly a life or death situation. Yes you mentioned your time as an air force leader. I also said in that role a many times. I would always encourage my my family members. My spouses take a little note. Cards postcards creative magnets refrigerator because when emergencies happen often times you know our brains are all over the rights. We know it by memory you know. We tend to forget so have that information on the refrigerator. Go ahead and share that information with mom. Dad mother-in-law father in law uncle ever your circle of support. Es share that information so win. Something happens because unfortunately we know things are gonna happen. That information is readily available. I so glad you mentioned that. Because i literally sitting here as i was writing those things down i was thinking like especially the the last four of the social security if possible obviously most military spouses have the last four of the social of Memorized in on the tip of are much easier than our own or even like i drive through the pharmacy in there like. What's your daughter's date. I'm like oh hang on a minute. And and that's just a normal wednesday night even like in a crisis or in like when your brain is just like overwhelmed because it really goes into that fight or flight survival mode of like this. Huge crisis is happening. And i'm trying to get a hold of my service member. My best friend my life partner. Whatever that is and you know our brains are like no. I don't have access in my brain of what the last four of the social isn't so. I'm so glad you mentioned like write that down. Have it handy for me. I was thinking a no on my phone that i can share with someone or screen shot and text. That's really really good information. And i personally think that should be all of those pre-deployment briefings like here's a note carter. Here's a magnet. Fill it out. Stick it where it needs to go so that's really good. I love that so much All right well so. My next question is one. I also get a lot. As a military is season season spouse. I guess is what they call us now. Senior season been around the block a time or two. If this emergency happens does the red cross pay Servicemember home so the red cross does not pay to send the servicemember home however we work hand in hand with all of our military aid societies to weaken help our service members apply for financial assistance through our aid societies. Right in do you mind sharing the names of some of those aid societies that maybe even if they You know you guys can't necessarily pay descend servicemember home. But what are some other organizations that be can provide some financial assistance or logistical support for that so each branch of service has an aid society so we have army emergency relief. We have navy emergency relief. We even our coast guard have eight society as able to provide for financial assistance..

Life talk radio. Thank you for having me. Cherie too i am excited looking forward to argus goshen undoubtedly and clearly you have a lot of experience empowering military spouses just based on that really impressive bio we just shared and now you continue your journey with the american red cross solicitor in a little bit more about what the red cross can do for military families. Tell us a little bit about how you got connected with the american red cross. Sure enough to so in twenty thirteen. We pcs to honolulu. Hawaii and i am sure you know. The challenges of military spouse is trying to maintain a career while always having to relocate every two to three years prior to relocating to hawaii. I was fortunate to be a part of another national nonprofit in various locations for abroad about eight years. But here i was in hawaii. Twenty thirteen Looking floor okay. What's next for me in my career. What am i gonna do of it in hang out on the beach. Every day and i was climbing. Dimon had one saturday morning. And as i got to the top of diamond head i looked across the ridge line and i saw the building across the street in the signed said american red cross. So is that four minute. And i pondered it just to to reflect on what has been my experience as a militarised spouse with the american red cross and i thought back. I had no personal family experiences. No we career My husband's grandmother passed away. But we didn't have to use ray across. I couldn't remember you know helping other military families utilize across programs in services especially on the multiple deployments that you know we've had over the years and so i got home that day. I google redcrossblood lulu. I saw that. They had a number of volunteer opportunities as well as career opportunities to support our military and veteran. Communities i apply for a paid position was afforded the opportunity to interview received the in actually got the position and here we are seven and a half years later another. Pcs move under our belt been able to stay connected with the red cross in both Paid and volunteer positions. What a fun on ramp. that started with. I guess i could hang out the beach and climbed this mountain. But i'll climb mountain and then it just kind of as they say escalated quickly with your connection with the american right across and just shy of a decade later. Here we are so congratulations on your success in a obviously you're doing a great work with this wonderful organization And so as a military family. I would say many of us. Don't wanna think that for emergencies will happen to us but unfortunately they can happen at any time so you would you share with us. How the american red cross comes alongside military families during those emergencies or the eucharist cross. Is there to support our military families. Three hundred sixty five days out of the year twenty four hours a day in the event of emergency. We have agents at our hero here center. Who are there to gather information about the emergency. We also verify that emergency by reaching out to medical authorities police department social services whatever agency or entity can verify that emergency for us and then of course we deliver that emergency communications Message to our servicemembers chain of command. Okay well let's talk a little bit more about the kinds of emergencies that people might face. What kind of emergencies would probably quote qualify as red cross message so those emergencies that will qualify as a red cross message would have to involve a death or illness or severe illness. Urgent time critical family emergency of course birth notifications because we do know. Babies are born while servicemembers are deployed yup emergency financial assistance in ne-. Okay well thank you clarify that. Because i know that sometimes as a military spouse and a former f. r. g. leader and all that kind of stuff people like this is going on and just having a general knowledge of what's the next step you know we just need to contact chain of command directly or is this kind of a bigger deal that needs to go through the official channels of american red cross. Should the service member have the option to be able to come home or come back from wherever they're at whether that's overseas deployment a major field exercises etcetera so We've talked about kind of the military family component there. But would you also give us a little bit more insight as to who's eligible to call the red cross to reach a servicemember if there's a crisis and walk us through those steps in what the specific procedure looks like. So anyone is eligible to call the american ray across initiator ray across message. But it's important for your listeners. To note that it order to initiate a message be emergency has to involve a core group what we call. Immediate family Anyone can call if if there was an emergency. That happened in. My neighbor was aware of that emergency. My neighbor could call the american hostile initiate that re- across message but we have to ensure that that message involve immediate family member and the american red cross in deal d. Identifies immediate family. Members adds a spouse children.
