Air Force Reveals An Afghanistan Evac Flight Was Almost Hijacked

The U.S. Air Force revealed that five individuals who boarded an evacuation flight out of Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA) in August intended to hijack the plane but U.S. forces were able to prevent the situation from happening.

The Air Force said in a statement, “As a steady stream of C-17s entered HKIA, PRTF personnel started tracking military and commercial flights into HKIA. ‘The data they were tracking was pivotal to managing airflow/airspace and requests for additional airlift support based on the numbers they got through the gates,’ [Lt. Col. Brian Desautels] said. On one occasion after they received an intel tip, five people onboard one of the commercial flights intended to hijack the aircraft. ‘Our team worked to get them clear of the NATO ramp, relocated to the north side away from friendly forces, then ultimately onto the south side where the situation was handled,’ he said.”

The Air Force also addressed the ISIS attack on the HKIA that killed 13 U.S. servicemembers.
“The sewage alley near Abbey Gate was packed with over 10,000 people when it was bombed around 6 p.m. local time. The terrorists then engaged with small arms fire.… Eleven Marines, one Navy corpsman and one Soldier were killed in the attack,” the statement said. “Seventeen service members were wounded and received care at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, before being transported to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. One Marine was still in “serious but stable condition,” according to a U.S. Marines spokesperson, as reported Oct. 6.”
“More than a thousand service members attended the ramp ceremony of the 13 KIA at HKIA,” the statement added. “Ramp ceremonies have historically never been shown before, but this one was mistakenly uploaded and then removed on the Defense Visual Information Distribution Service. On social media, veterans and servicemembers shared the photos and memories of their own experiences at ramp ceremonies, as the fall of Afghanistan has been more emotional for many who have served there.”

Andrew Cuomo Charged With ‘Sex Crime’ In New York

On Thursday, disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was charged with a “sex crime,” specifically the Class A misdemeanor of “forcible touching.”

The misdemeanor criminal complaint alleges that Cuomo “did intentionally, and for no legitimate purpose, forcibly place his hand under the blouse shirt of the victim…and onto her intimate body part…specifically, the victims [sic] left breast for the purposes of degrading and satisfying his sexual desire.”
“The incident allegedly took place on the afternoon of Dec. 7 on the second floor of the Executive Mansion, the governor’s official residence,” the New York Post noted. “The name of the alleged victim was redacted from the complaint but the allegations line up with those made by former Cuomo aide Brittany Commisso, 33.”

TRENDINGAlmost 100 Employees At Yale New Haven Health Fired For Being Unvaccinated
“The complaint charges Cuomo with forcible touching, which carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail,” the New York Post added. “The alleged evidence against him includes a text message from Cuomo’s cell phone, state police aviation records for Dec. 7 and news reports of a press conference that day, state police Blackberry PIN messages, swipe card records from the state Capitol, and Commisso’s testimony to the Attorney General’s Office.”
In August, Cuomo resigned after an independent investigation found he had “sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees.”

The scandal began in December when the first of 11 women accused Cuomo of sexual misconduct. The women, who were mostly employees of his, said Cuomo engaged in sexually aggressive behavior including non-consensual kissing, groping, inappropriate invitations to play strip poker and comments about their sex lives.
The independent investigation found that “the Governor sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees by, among other things, engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching, as well as making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.”

Taiwan President Confirms US Troops Are In The Country To Help Protect Against China

During a CNN interview on Wednesday, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen confirmed that U.S. troops were on the ground in Taiwan to assist in strengthening the country’s defenses as the threat from China is “increasing every day.”

Tsai told CNN’s Will Ripley that the situation has gone south in recent years as “China’s plan towards the region” has become “very different.”
“That plan includes war threats over Taiwan, clashes with Japan and the East China Sea and militarizing manmade islands in the South China Sea, posing a direct challenge to seven decades of U.S. military supremacy in the Indo-Pacific,” Ripley said. “In response, the U.S. ramped up arms sales to Taiwan, selling the island $5 billion in weapons last year. President Tsai confirms exclusively to CNN, U.S. support goes beyond selling weapons. Does that support include sending some U.S. service members to help train Taiwanese troops?”

TRENDINGGovernors demand Biden take action on the border
“Well, yes,” Tsai responded. “We have a wide range of cooperation with the U.S., aiming at increasing our defense capability.”
Later in the interview, Ripley asked, “Do you have faith that the United States would defend Taiwan if the Mainland were to try to move on Taiwan?”

“I do have faith, and given the long-term relationship that we have the U.S. and also the support the people of the U.S., as well as the Congress, and the administration has been very helpful,” Tsai said, later adding that Taiwan needs to “expedite our military reform so that we have the ability to defend ourselves. And given the size of Taiwan compared to the size of [China], developing asymmetric capability is the key for us.”
Tsai’s comments come a few weeks after China sent over 150 military planes into Taiwanese air space, the largest incursion ever by the Communist country.
“The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that,” Taiwan Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told ABC Australia in response to China’s aggression.
“If China is going to launch a war against Taiwan we will fight to the end, and that is our commitment. I’m sure that if China is going to launch an attack against Taiwan, I think they are going to suffer tremendously as well.”

Every Place
Going into all of the world means we must share the truth and love of Jesus everywhere. Take one look at the New Testament, and you see life-altering conversations happening everywhere. These moments happened with families in homes, with beggars in courtyards, and with tax collectors in marketplaces.
Today, spiritual conversations happen in homes, workplaces, events, streets, and even online. People can encounter Jesus anywhere. We meet people where they are, and many times, that starts at home.
Of course, we know thought-provoking spiritual conversations aren’t limited to front porches and living rooms. We train believers to understand that the love of God can be shared in any place. We can share the gospel at a mailbox in the suburbs, at a rural village well, or in a cubicle in a skyscraper.
The mandate Jesus gave us to go into the world is just as important today as it was when it was first spoken. We cannot wait for others to come to us. We must travel far and wide to every place and take the love of Jesus across the world.

CNBC POLL: Biden’s support is free falling and it’s only been 8 months

I don’t think we needed a poll from CNBC to affirm what many of us already know: President Joe Biden is losing whatever support he once previously had as the country takes a turn for the worst on almost every major issue.

The poll released Thursday shows Biden’s approval rating at a dismal 41 %, while his disapproval rating has soared to 52 %, according to CNBC’s all American Economic Survey.  According to the report “inflation now ties with the coronavirus as the biggest concern for Americans, up 16 points from the prior survey.”
Just spend time in any grocery store and take a moment to talk to strangers they won’t hesitate to discuss how worried they are about the economy and soaring prices. As for his handling of the pandemic, well that’s taking a dive as well.

TRENDINGAlmost 100 Employees At Yale New Haven Health Fired For Being Unvaccinated
“Fifty percent now approve of his Covid-19 handling, compared to 53% in July, and 45% disapprove, compared to just 38%,” according to the report.
It isn’t surprising because Americans  are feeling it directly in their pocket books. Remember folks, we’re only 8 months into this presidency. Imagine what it will be like come 2022 mid-term elections and then thankfully, hopefully a new president in 2024.

But between now and then that’s a long time for things to go drastically wrong.
This administration is filled with incompetent leftist ideological bureaucrats that are figuratively and literally disconnected from the American public. It’s a shame what they have done to our nation is so little time.
This survey may have focused on economics but there’s a lot more to what’s happening with President Biden. First and foremost, he appears to have some serious cognitive issues and rarely makes any sense when he surfaces from the White House. Secondly, his administration forgot what the role of a president should be and that is the national security of the United States. That isn’t happening.
Just look at the border. I’m there almost every week and it’s a complete nightmare. It’s wide open and our law enforcement officials have become little more than glorified baby sitters in some instances and in others they have been left at the mercy of a federal government that doesn’t appear to care about their health or safety.
It’s an overall tragedy and again, it leaves me wondering what our nation will be like in 2024 when we finally get a chance to put someone else in office.

Governor DeSantis Offers $5k Bonus to Law Enforcement Willing to Relocate to Florida, Vaccinated or Not

Appearing on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced he plans to offer $5,000 signing bonuses to any law enforcement officers who relocate to Florida.

The proposal comes as law enforcement personnel across the country are fighting back against vaccine mandates imposed by liberal leadership. DeSantis says his offer is good for all officers, vaccinated or unvaccinated.
“We’re actually actively working to recruit out-of-state law enforcement. We do have needs in our police and our sheriff’s departments. So, in the next legislative session, I’m going to hopefully sign legislation that gives a $5,000 bonus to any out-of-state law enforcement that relocates in Florida” said DeSantis.
“NYPD [New York], Minneapolis, Seattle, if you’re not being treated well, we will treat you better here. You can fill important needs for us, and we will compensate you as a result” he added. “Nobody should lose their job based off these injections. It’s a choice you can make, but we want to make sure we’re protecting your jobs and your livelihood.”

TRENDINGAlmost 100 Employees At Yale New Haven Health Fired For Being Unvaccinated
DeSantis confirmed his position on Monday saying, “we are looking to capitalize off a lot of communities across our country who have turned their back on law enforcement, who aren’t providing them the support.”

Last week DeSantis made headlines after he posted a graphic to his Twitter account playing off the “Don’t Tread On Me” Gadsden flag, with an alligator instead of a timber rattlesnake, and the words “DON’T TREAD ON FLORIDA.” DeSantis’ signature was underneath the phrase.
Over a third of Chicago’s roughly 13,000-member police force has defied the vaccine mandates by not reporting their vaccination status in the government’s database. The Massachusetts state’s police union estimated at least 150 officers will resign over the mandate. The New York City Police Benevolent Association has filed a lawsuit due to the mandates.
Patrick Yoes, president of the National Fraternal Order of Police wrote in a letter to officers, “as an organization that prides itself on protecting the freedoms afforded to us by the U.S. Constitution, we are vehemently opposed to any suggestion of a vaccine mandate from any organization, employer or government agency. “

HOW TO BECOME COURAGEOUS WHEN FEAR IS SURROUNDING YOU

By Kris Vallotton

15 Oct, 2021

Courage has not always been a friend of mine; we had a relationship held in tension, I wanted to be courageous but fear had a strong influence in my life. But, I have seen the Lord take my weakness and make them my strength. The very things that used to riddle me with fear and taunt me with despair were enemies that turned into allies. On days when my courage tank was nearing the end, they were fuel to my fire. Seasons in my life were plagued with the scheme of the enemy, battles in the night, motivation laid dormant, and terror tormented me as I fought the enemy. If I allowed my feelings to dictate my destiny I would still be lying on the couch crippled with fear, but I began to put up a fight and tell the dogs of doom that stood at the door of my destiny where my faith lied. When courage was hard to find I began to write a list of all the things I was thankful for and the things I feared that never came to pass. It’s crazy what I began to realize — so often the name changed, but the fear remained the same. As I began to recount the times God showed up in my life the fear that was keeping me from taking my stone and conquering the giant began to subside. I’d propose courage is not the absence of fear, but that it’s the fear that has said its prayers. The truth is, sometimes the most courageous ones are simply the ones that do not bow their head to fear. Fear is a powerful weapon of the enemy, if he can convince us that we are smaller and more insignificant than we are, we lose sight of the times God has worked a miracle in our lives. Consider the life of David; a small adolescent boy went to battle with a sling and a stone and was convinced it was possible to slay the giant, not out of ignorance, but because he recounted the ways God had used him before. He remembered the lion and the bear he had fought that had prepared him for this war. 1 Samuel 17: 34-36 says: “But David said to Saul, “Your servant was tending his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a sheep from the flock, I went out after it and attacked it, and rescued the sheep from its mouth; and when it rose up against me, I grabbed it by its mane and struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, since he has defied the armies of the living God.” This shows us the power of our testimony. I’d propose the lions and bears we face are the very thing God is using to prepare us for our victory, for the next season, or for our destiny. In this week’s vlog I share how to find courage and how courage is vital in every Believer’s life.
