Nebraska looks to join the 21 other states that have passed NRA-backed constitutional carry laws. While the measure has not yet been scheduled for a hearing, please contact your state Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Legislative Bill 773. Legislative Bill 773 allows a law-abiding adult who is legally allowed to carry a concealed firearm, to do so without first having to obtain government permission. This ensures that citizens have the right to self-defense without government red tape or delays. Additionally, this legislation maintains the existing concealed handgun license system, so citizens who still wish to obtain a permit may do so. (Click Here for Full Article)   From thehill.com/homenews: President Biden is reportedly weighing the deployment of U.S. troops to NATO allies amid increased tensions with Russia and concerns that Moscow is planning an invasion of Ukraine. The New York Times, citing unidentified administration officials, reported that Biden is considering sending troops to allied countries in the Baltics and Eastern Europe, a move that would increase the U.S. military's presence across the globe at a time when diplomatic conversations between Washington and Moscow appear to be at a stalemate. (Click Here for Full Article)   From www.foxnews.com: From negotiating with the malign Iranian regime while they have threatened former President Trump, or allowing the Taliban to sweep through Afghanistan and directly imperil American lives, or refusing to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its central role in the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic or for its aggression towards Taiwan, the Biden administration's record after one year in office is marked by abject weakness. But his weakness has been unmatched in attempting to deter Russia's imminent invasion of Ukraine. For months now, Vladimir Putin has massed Russian military forces on the Ukrainian border. Last month, on December 17, the Kremlin unveiled two draft agreements that essentially acted as ultimatums for NATO and the Biden administration. (Click Here for Full Article)

On COI #221, Kyle Anzalone discusses the Ukraine crisis. Biden has overextended American commitments and now must make concessions to defuse the crisis. Even if it leads to war, the Blob will demand that Biden hold firm against Putin. While the US continues to take aggressive positions against Russia, behind-the-scenes talks could be working towards a deal to prevent such a war.  Kyle talks about the U.K. High Court's ruling that Assange can appeal his extradition to the U.K. Supreme Court. The decision is key in the Wikileaks founder's fight for freedom. However, Assange will remain entangled in the UK justice system for months.  Kyle updates Saudi's brutal war in Yemen. Following a Houthi drone strike on the UAE, the U.S./Saudi air war on the people of northern Yemen accelerated. After knocking out the internet, Riyadh dropped American-made bombs on a youth soccer game and a migrant detention center. Kyle looks at the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. Since the Taliban took control of the country in August, the U.S. levied a brutal economic war on the Afghans, sending millions to the brink of starvation. The U.S. is talking with the Taliban this week. The Taliban, as well as the UN, are pushing the U.S. to unfreeze Afghan government accounts.  Kyle breaks down the career paths of former Trump defense officials. Many are joining smaller tech firms' boards. The smaller firms give more control to the former officials to direct the companies.

After U.S withdrawal, Afghanistan became the number one place on earth where it is most dangerous to be a Christian, for the first time ever. That's according to Open Doors USA's World Watch List 2022. The Taliban in Afghanistan is now engaged in a door-to-door campaign to rid the country of Christians, who are mostly converts from Islam. The penalty for conversion is death. The World Watch List is a definitive, comprehensive research-based report that ranks the top 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian. Afghanistan has supplanted North Korea, which now ranks #2 on the list, after spending 20 years at #1. And it's not that North Korea has gotten better; Afghanistan has gotten worse. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Open Doors president David Curry explains how bad things are; how every Christian in Afghanistan is now either in hiding or on the run. The Taliban's interpretation of Islam considers Christians to be traitors, enemies of the state, enemies of the tribe and even the community; they are deemed to be “infidels." Curry will also highlight another bad actor on the World Watch List: China. Its religious freedom abuses are more sinister and more cunning; using technology and Artificial Intelligence to control people of faith, keep watch on them, and judge whether they are good citizens or not based on what and who they worship. On the eve of the Winter Olympics in China, Curry wants the world to be aware what's happening there, and that money and power should not determine how people are treated.

After college, she sprang into an expedition that would take her across the globe to Europe and Latin America in search of new perspectives. Coming back to the states she felt listless, but soon sunk her energy into Street Sense media, whose mission was to vocalize homeless issues and provide community support. Realizing that she could help the marginalized, Laura once again saw a calling as the Syrian refugee crisis erupted. Taking action, she joined her church in welcoming and supporting newly displaced families. Her work with these agencies eventually inspired her to found her own resettlement nonprofit--Homes Not Borders right in her hometown of Washington D.C.

Naomi Karavani brings you a very special interview this week. She spoke to former-Guantanamo detainee and author Mansoor Adayfi about his experience of being held in the US's most notorious illegal detention center, Guantanamo, for 14 years without charge. Adayfi is currently being held in Serbia under less restrictive conditions, but he still isn't free. He had originally traveled to Afghanistan to do research, but he was kidnapped by a warlord and eventually sold to the CIA for a bounty, accused of being an important Taliban commander. He gave a false confession under torture before being shipped to Guantanamo. Come to this interview prepared for a brutal story of courage in the face of extreme cruelty. Jaffer Khan finishes off the show by providing context to the US's current debt crisis. Deficit has existed in human societies throughout recorded history, but it has also always come with the concept of cancellation or a jubilee. However, the ruling class in the US has done its best to eradicate that idea because the rich love it when their workers are crushed under insurmountable debt. It keeps us quiet. It's a shame that the rich don't take a page from the US's favorite religious figure when considering debt forgiveness, though, since the Jesus Christ of the bible supported it.

Um in Afghanistan eine Hungersnot zu vermeiden, sind laut Uno 4,5 Milliarden Dollar nötig. Sonst habe das Land keine Zukunft. Doch die Taliban sollen nicht von der Hilfe profitieren. Im «Tagesgespräch» spricht Stefan Recker von Caritas International über die schwierige Ausgangslage in Afghanistan. Es ist der grösste humanitäre Spendenaufruf der Uno für ein Land: 4,5 Milliarden Dollar für Afghanistan. Ohne diese Hilfe werde das Land keine Zukunft haben, sagte der Uno-Nothilfekoordinator beim Hilfsappell vor einer Woche. Mehr als die Hälfte der afghanischen Bevölkerung leidet gemäss Uno unter akutem Hunger. Die Wirtschaft des Landes befindet sich im freien Fall. Die Hilfsgelder sollen an humanitäre Organisationen gehen, damit die Bevölkerung und nicht die Taliban von den Zahlungen profitieren. Seit deren Machtübernahme im August ist Afghanistan isoliert, kein Land der Welt hat die Taliban-Regierung anerkannt. Was benötigen die Menschen in Afghanistan derzeit am dringendsten? Und wie geht humanitäre Hilfe vor Ort, ohne die Taliban zu stützen? Darüber haben wir mit dem deutschen Entwicklungshelfer Stefan Recker gesprochen. Er arbeitet seit vielen Jahren in Afghanistan und leitet das Büro von Caritas International in Kabul. Aus Sicherheitsgründen ist Stefan Recker derzeit in Duschanbe, der Hauptstadt von Tadschikistan. Dort hat Barbara Peter ihn erreicht.

Throughout our 20-year war in Afghanistan, so many me and women from that country risked themselves and their Families to support American service members and units. In the telling of that war, those Afghans must not be forgotten. Their sacrifices and the risks they took on our behalf are so real, the consequences for them so stark; the debt we owe to them is so steep. One of those Afghans is a 25-year-old woman named Zamzama Safi. "ZZ", as she is affectionately known, had a trauma-filled childhood. Her father was an officer for the Afghan Army, making her a target of the Taliban as a child. As a teenager she was captured and held captive by the Taliban, only to later reunite with her Family. She later served as an interpreter for American forces herself. At the end of the American presence in Afghanistan, ZZ was able to leave the country, making her way to Saint Louis, Missouri, with the help of a group of American military officers alongside whom she served. This is ZZ's story. It's a story of courage and triumph. It's a story of trauma and tragedy. It's a story we all should hear as we seek to make sense of our experience in Afghanistan.

Five presidents from both political parties oversaw the two decade debacle in Afghanistan that ended in the national humiliation at the end of August 2021 at the airport in Kabul where we retreated under fire following a negotiated surrender - leaving up to a thousand Americans behind and untold thousands of Afghan nationals who fought with us to their fate as the Taliban returned to the power we took from them in 2001.People in the executive branch, Department of Defense, Department of State, Congress, media, and the well credentialed chatterati said they were "shocked," "surprised," and otherwise unprepared for what unfolded. Should they have been, or was this the inevitable outcome warned of in official government lessons learned and historical interviews dating from the beginning of the conflict?Our guest for the full hour this Sunday will be Craig Whitlock, and we will be using his book “The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War” (Simon & Schuster, 2021) as a starting point for our conversation.Craig has been a staff writer for The Washington Post since 1998.

On the show, Chris Hedges discusses the legacy of the Carter administration with his biographer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Kai Bird. Jimmy Carter, America's 39th president, who served one term from 1977 to 1981 before being defeated by Ronald Reagan, was one of the country's most enigmatic politicians. He was a bundle of contradictions, a man of deep Christian faith who would be abandoned by his evangelical base; a president who promised to place human rights at the center of his foreign policy and yet fell under the disastrous influence of his Svengali-like national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, leading Carter to equip and arm the radical jihadists who would morph into the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, and give unswerving support to the brutal Iranian regime of the Shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Carter preached compassion for the poor and the vulnerable while imposing punishing financial policies, deregulation and austerity measures that would take a toll on the working class and the marginalized. And yet in many ways, he was perhaps our most exemplary modern president, refraining from military adventurism, devoting tremendous effort to securing peace in the Middle East, and overseeing an administration that was free from the kinds of corruption and scandals that characterized the presidencies that followed. Kai Bird's most recent book is ‘The Outlier: The Unfinished Presidency of Jimmy Carter'.
