US, Allies Issue 'Security Threat' Alerts at Kabul Airport

"And Australia have all warned of a high risk of an attack at Kabul airport and advised their nationals not to travel there. Those already outside the Afghan facility are advised to leave immediately. Lamia Iqbal is in Washington with the details. Our understanding is that this security alert this threats and this comes from comments made by President Biden is from Isis K. This Afghan affiliates of the so called Islamic State Group, the terrorist group they made up of about 502,000 fighters, But the theory is and this is, according to U. S intelligence officials, they could be heading to the airport with Bombs on trucks, suicide bombers and that's and the Taliban's demands for America to get out. It's probably what has influenced Joe Biden's decision for everyone to try and get out as soon as possible. Isis K or Isis. Khorasan is a sworn enemy of the Taliban. Javad Ali, a former director of the US National Security Council, says the danger posed by Isis K extremists is significant. They have conducted a series of high impact and spectacular and unfortunate lethal attacks across Afghanistan. So this is a group that needs to be taken very seriously and based on the recent statements by members of the administration would appear that there's some form of intelligence or other type of information suggesting that units or fighters aligned with Isis course on Thinking about or planning to conduct an attack.

"How would you respond about this deal percolating up. That wonder Young's going to step down on condition. His wife is appointed to a seat I can share with you that council members see. So Thomas Took that action. And it didn't work out will So it would be self bill dealing and again, it would be very problematic for something like that to happen is that legal? It would be legal for him to do that. Yes, he could legally do that. It happened. It happened in our history with council member former Council member Sea Salt, but but she still Thomas stepped down. He wasn't he wasn't indicted. I mean, Cecil Thomas is not been charged in his whole life with any crime. I'm aware of, And so this is different. But the issue here is that the appointment doesn't come through window. It would come through window Young council member Young. It would come through council member Phil Box, but he's making a deal deal he's saying, Look. He'll step down on condition you appoint Mrs Window Young to the sea. It's like what the hell? I don't think that's going to happen when I think what I think is going to happen is I think that the Ohio Supreme Court is going to suspend or council member Young is going to resign, and I think it's important for us to talk. Just a hair a hair about that That council member Young today could just resign. Sure, he considered andare from now before Reds baseball, he could say, Look, I've had enough. I've been through a lot. He's got a 25 year career with CPD Been on council, I guess about 10 years or so. And obviously he can't run again in November. He's out of office anyway. In December, he's got six months. No matter what else happens, he's gone. And it would give Mrs one too young a leg up. There's so many openings. Maybe they're thinking she could take the seat and run with it. Kind of. I don't I don't think that that will be the deal for the young family. I really don't wanna bet me a hot fudge sundae. Yeah, I'll bet you a hot but Sunday taking I'll tell you I think was going to happen is before. I don't think the council member Young is going to resign, but if he did resign Those Democrats that are on social media right who are screaming that this is partisan? If, if council member young with a resigned council members? Still, Bach would have sole appointment power. But that would mean that council member Young would not get his income and would not have access to health care. We're already paying for council member Jeffrey Pastor. We're already paying for council member P G. Sittenfeld, and now we will be paying for council member Young. That means that we will be paying for 12 members of Council where the taxpayers say we're only supposed to be paying for nine Willie and then and on top of that, like he to Cole. I think she worked with PG sitting film she was indicted for. Ah, harboring a felon. Then you got this other this prey through woman I never met. She's under indictment for making false P p p claims. So you look a city council. Yeah. P G. Sittenfeld to Maya Denard. Jeff Pastor, Wendell Young Lik E to Cole pray for another's It looks like there's a hole it looks like you need a work release program on City Council. It has not been the best year for the elected officials at City Hall, and that's really what made yesterday's vote. So important, and I want to thank council member Gooden yesterday for abstaining also meaning and the extension means we're not participating. There's something wrong that's happening here. We're concerned about this. And so you're saying and it failed and council member Gooden If you remember recall this Happens to be my lawyer when the gang of five sued me while Pamela was dying, and so they attempted to implicate me in this and council member. Gooden is very familiar with this case. He also obtained yesterday and I appreciate his abstention and it really shows that we're trying doing our very best to restore trust at City Hall. We can't do it, though, with council member still box and Council member Landsman Saying, Hey, way won't even we won't even because of the appearance of a conflict. We won't walk out of the room. We're going to continue to vote as if there's nothing wrong here. The elephant in the room here is that the members of the Gang of five Which council member Young was a part of that they should not be their voting to remove him from council period now, and I'm saying again, this investigation is ongoing and it's not over. And we'll see what happens down the road. Let's give a big happy birthday to Elmer Hensler. He's a friend of ours. He'll be 91 on Friday is my understanding. And if you guys decide to go out to dinner Maybe give me a jingle, but he's a great man, a great American and what he's done down a Queen City sausages just remarkable, and we just lift him up as a great American. Chris, if you take Elmer Throwing Buddy LaRosa throw in Robert Linder, who just turned 100, then Olga. Iran's about those four. Collectively, the like 400 years old. They got chicken. They got pizza. They got sausage. And they got ice cream. They got it all. And to tell you what those four horsemen of the apocalypse will never come again And on one sad thing is that Ron Larkin at At his chicken. Joining his fabulous doesn't want to give his mother a race. Poor Olga, tell I was out there to have have lunch and August telling me she's making like $8.50 an hour and she's asking Ron Of Ron's Roost.

But Christopher give my best everyone that the work release program and City Council work release Right. Well, see, this is really my thing. This is unbelievable.

"Keino. Young's about Biden's response to the growing number of Children showing up at the US Mexico border. So someone given how presidents Obama and Trump Dealt with unaccompanied minors when this New surge arrives with past few weeks. And Biden faces more or less. Similar challenge. What is his response? So almost immediately coming into office. You see, top administration officials saying, Well, look, we're going to approach the border with more compassion. We're going to make good on our campaign pledge of that. At the same time. They are also saying, Look, we cannot just flip the switch here. You have them actually discouraging migrants very publicly into interviews, saying, Do not make this journey North. That sounds quite contradictory, Be compassionate, But by the way the border is closed and don't even try to cross it. Well, let me explain how it's working on the ground. So this pandemic emergency rule that Trump had introduced a year before. Body administration is keeping it in place, which allows border agents to rapidly deport migrants who crossed the border. But the difference here with the Biden administration is they're actually not. Going toe apply it to Children who crossed the border. Interesting. They're not doing that now, And that is what they would say. Is there evidence of already, um or compassionate, humane approach? The fact that you're not rapidly turning away a child who would cross the Southwest border alone? So the administration is not expelling these Children, not forcing them back to their home countries. So what is it doing with these unaccompanied minors? So Michael as far as the process for the unaccompanied minors, it's actually a similar process that we saw in previous administrations that child once they cross the border. They were taken by a border agent to a border facility. They are only supposed to be there for 72 hours. Those facilities were designed for adults, not Children. And then from the border facility. They're supposed to be taken to a shelter managed by the Department of Health and Human Services until the government can locate their sponsor. But here's the issue up until last Friday. Those shelters managed by health and human services were actually at reduced capacity by almost 40%. That's because of the pandemic. Right. You have these shelters reduce the space so that you can spread people out in the midst of a pandemic. So what has happened is it's created this bottle neck if you don't have enough space. In the shelters that are supposed to hold the Children that then means that those Children are going to be in the facilities where they're not supposed to be along the border for a longer period of time. And when I talked to officials on the ground, they are raising alarm about this, and you even saw the Biden administration acknowledged this just this past Friday when they directed those shelters for Children to go back to the capacity that they had before the pandemic to create more space. But it really is starting to look like a similar challenge that we saw not only under the Trump Administration but also under the Obama administration. So to recap, binds, intend to create a more humane approach to what to do with unaccompanied minors is just bumping up against all kinds of challenges that air, making it difficult to not recreate. The same problems of Trump and Obama. And it also risk him now being accused of not making good on his campaign pledge of this more compassionate and humane approach to the border.

"You know, the Bible is very clear that our eternal life is anchored and Jesus Christ. It's it's him. It's not. Our good deed is not what we do while we're on this earth, that little good things that we do. It's in Christ, John 8 24. I told you this is what he said. I told you that you would die and your sins for Unless you believe that I am here you will die in your sins. There's no way to go to heaven. Apart from Jesus Christ, our Lord Jesus Christ. In Romans, 51 and what the Bible says being justified by faith. We have peace with God. Through our Lord Jesus Christ. Now I can tell you about peace with God. The greatest piece I ever knew was that the day after I accepted Christ as my savior The night I went to bed after having believed in the Lord Jesus Christ. I slept like a baby because I had for the first time. Peace with God. Do you have peace with God? If you're living on borrowed time. Can you say absolutely confident? That if I die today, I will go to heaven. Can you say that? Your eternal security is anchored in Jesus Christ. All of us must embrace that fact. We can't live in this contaminated body forever. We have to put it off someday through physical death. And the reason is so that we can inherit our eternal body through the resurrection. Now, you know the Bible talks about a lot of different deaths mentioned in the Bible. But the most destructive of it all is called spiritual death. Spiritual death is separation from God in time. Because of the amputation of Adam's original sin to us to our genetically forms and nature of birth. So when when we're born, we're born physically alive and spiritually dead. Adam's original Santa's imputed to us, as the Bible says For about one man sent in it in the world and death by sin. And now death is passed on all The wages of sand is death and Roman 6 23. Romans, 5 12. So we're born physically alive. We have a soul. We have a body. We have a consciousness and the self consciousness but our human spirit is dead. We're spiritually dead. It's possible that you are a walking dead man today. Yes. You're alive. Physically but spiritually. You're dead to God and Christ. So the Bible is very clear about that. Being a walking dead man. It's a shame, but it's true. John 3 16 God. So loved the world. The verse you've heard all your life, and he gave his only begotten son. Whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but at the world through him might be saved. He that believes on him is not condemned. But he that believeth not and listen carefully. He didn't believe it not is condemned already. Because they have not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God. Spiritual death. You're born spiritually dead. You're already condemned to the lake of fire apart from Jesus Christ. You're under condemnation, and there's no need to be There's no need to live like that God made provisions for us made provisions through his son's sacrifice on the cross. To redeem us out of the slave market of sand and reconcile is to himself. So there's a death sentence on each of us. We're going to die. We know that. But we don't we don't have to die had to have the second death in the lake of fire in the Bible talks about So we're born spiritually dead. We can be made spiritually alive through faith alone and Christ alone. But your physical death Now that's a matter of the sovereignty of God, based on his very own on missions, all the facts. He knows the facts. He knows everything and he knows the time in the manner in the place of our departure. And some 68 20. He that is our God is the god of salvation. And then the God the Lord belongs to the issues from death. Yep. Because it it's perfect sovereignty, he's able to pick out the perfect time. The perfect place and the perfect conditions of our death. And God protests and all of this and eternity past if you're like me. You've had family members that passed away. You've had friends and passed away. And you grieve those people than you miss those people tremendously, and that's understandable. We all do. But it was nothing unfair on God's part, even though it could have been sudden and premature. In your mind. It's not God always knows the perfect time. The perfect place. And the perfect conditions for her departure. So don't worry now about how you're going to die. That's not even an issue. But you need to worry about the second death. That is really the issue. In revelation 2014 through 15 and death and hell were cast in the lake of fire. And this is the second death and whoever was not found written allowed. The book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. Wow. It's seen the book of life and it contains the name of every individual ever born. When you die without having accepted Christ as your savior. Your name is blotted out of the Lambs. Book of Life. And you are minus men. So there are other books. The Bible says. The books of works are opened up and you can try to justify why you should come to heaven. Remember, the Bible says there are none that are good. No, not one. All of our righteousness is our like it filthy rag in God's eyes. So in spite of how morally good you maybe how decent you maybe that's not going to get you into heaven. And you, like any other person will wind up in the lake of fire apart from faith alone in Christ alone. Whoever was not found written in the book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death revelation 20. So why? Why don't you just settle the issue today? That would be a wonderful thing to do, wouldn't it? In your car and your home in your study. Why don't you settle it now? I mean, I had to do it at one time in my life, and you must think about this. Cause you may in fact be living on this bar in time. Maybe God's giving you just a little bit extra time. Now is the perfect time for us to come to the Lord..
