The Religious Exemption
Earlier this month, President Biden issued a far-reaching executive order. It mandates the COVID vaccine for all federal employees and all healthcare workers in federally funded facilities. It also requires employers of companies with 100 or more workers to either receive the vaccine or undergo mandatory testing. All told, as many as 100 million Americans are affected. Some, however, believe they should qualify for a religious exemption. Senior national affairs correspondent Heather Sells has been following this developing story. She’s on today’s CBN News Daily Rundown.

"The Largest Expulsion of Migrants By the U.S. in Decades"
The Biden Administration promised to take care of migrants by stopping construction of the border wall and eliminating limits on the number of migrants allowed in, but now we’re seeing the results of these actions. The Southwest border has been flooded in recent months with unauthorized crossings in numbers not seen for more than two decades. In August alone, more than 200,000 people crossed the southern border, stretching border agents thin and creating dangerous encampments. The Del Rio bridge is the most recent example of the crisis at the border with more than 9,000 migrants packed in under the International Bridge, awaiting entrance. CBN News Senior Reporter Dale Hurd is on The Daily Rundown today to talk about how the Biden Administration’s plans are shaking out.

Americans are seeking legal action after President Biden delivered a shocking vaccine mandate last week that would effect both public and private organizations with over 100 employees. This comes as the Biden administration pressures the CDC to approve his booster plan - another part of his drastic COVID strategy. Churches, businesses and private individuals are already mounting their legal defenses to develop an exemption from the far-reaching mandate. We’re not hearing much from Jen Psaki or the Biden administration, and CBN News Medical Reporter Lorie Johnson says we could be waiting a while to see this mandate come to fruition – if it ever does.

Never Forget: Two Decades After 9/11
We’re one day away from the 20-year anniversary of September 11, 2001. Many remember what they were doing that day - none of us will ever forget. Twenty years ago, America was shaken to its core. Twenty years ago, our way of life was turned upside down, and everything we thought we knew about safety, changed. Twenty years ago, nearly three thousand brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, daughters, sons, friends, and first responders lost their lives. Twenty years later, we’re taking a look back at what we’ve learned, how we’ve changed, and what we’re doing to maintain our freedom, or lose it. CBN News International Correspondent George Thomas has been with CBN for 25 years, and he was in Paris reporting on Islamic terrorism when the 9/11 attacks occurred. He is on the podcast today to share what he remembers and how the news industry – and the world – has changed.

Pro-Lifers Dubbed 'American Taliban' After Texas Abortion Law Passes

No Man Left Behind
The last C-17 military aircraft left the Kabul airport this afternoon. As we’re closing in on the August 31st pullout deadline, U.S. veterans and private non-profit groups aren’t giving up. The Pentagon announced Saturday that a targeted, military drone strike killed two high profile Islamic militants, and multiple operations by U.S. veterans are underway to rescue their brothers and sisters. CBN News Senior International Correspondent and International News Director Gary Lane is on today’s podcast to talk about why private, nonprofit civilian efforts are key to continuing evacuation efforts in Afghanistan before the deadline tomorrow. Abortion advocates aren’t satisfied with their self-proclaimed interest in a woman’s right to choose life or death for her baby. Instead, they demand that everyone embrace abortion as a glamorous norm. A popular women’s magazine called ‘Marie Claire,’ that women usually turn to for fashion and beauty advice, recently called for more depictions of abortion in TV and film. While there’s already an increasing number of abortions portrayed by the film industry, the magazine specifically called for more depictions of abortion by couples rather than single, teen girls. CBN News Reporter Mark Martin recently spoke with pro-life activist and Live Action President Lila Rose about this new push to “normalize” abortion.

"Winning Tool" in COVID Fight
The Pfizer vaccine made headlines this morning as the first, COVID-19 vaccine to be approved by the F.D.A. This comes after months of inoculations under the Emergency Use Authorization. Pfizer, along with Moderna and Johnson & Johnson, delivered at least one dose of the vaccine to over half of the United States population. While many public entities and the entire state of New York were already considering mandates, F.D.A. approval opens the door to federal vaccine mandates across the country. Following suit, the Pentagon announced shortly after Pfizer was approved that it will require service members to receive the Pfizer vaccine. CBN News Health Reporter Lorie Johnson is on today’s podcast to talk about what this means for Americans, how mandates may affect the unvaccinated, and an antibody treatment that’s gaining popularity for its use in treating COVID symptoms in their early stages.

Christians in Afghanistan fear complete annihilation at the hands of the Taliban. Some are fleeing into the mountains, even with winter just months away. Others are destroying anything that could identify them as a follower of Christ. But as senior international correspondent George Thomas points out, it's not only Christians who live in fear; the Taliban's charm campaign falling flat on a country that's lived through their rule before. Thomas is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. Psalm 121 A song of ascents. 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; 8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

The Taliban has total control over Afghanistan after the terrorist group seized the Presidential Palace in Kabul. The Afghan President gave up his power to an interim government led by the Taliban commander. The world is watching in shock as the situation escalates faster than we imagined. CBN News Contributor Chuck Holton is on The Daily Rundown today to break down what’s happening in Afghanistan. It may come as a surprise that there’s another country out there committed to biblical values. Hungary is a powerful example of what it means to live in unapologetic defense of The Great Commission. Hungary re-established the nation’s Christian identity when it adopted a constitution in 2011 that’s consistent with biblical teachings. The government established a national-level office in 2016 to support Christians suffering for their faith around the world. Hungary’s Secretary Azbej began a national program called ‘Hungary Helps’ to support the spread of Christianity around the world. CBN News Senior Washington Correspondent Jennifer Wishon is on today’s podcast to talk about why Christians should aspire to Hungary’s example… and how there’s no other way to live except ‘Hungary’ for the word of God.

Israel's defense minister has issued a warning: his country is ready to strike Iran, and he believes they're only weeks away from getting the material it needs for a nuclear weapon. This warning comes as Israel blames Iran for a deadly drone attack on an oil tanker near the Strait of Hormuz, a provocation many consider a power play by the new hard-line government that is now in power in Tehran. Mideast bureau chief Chris Mitchell is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown. And, it's been all about infrastructure on Capitol Hill this week, and Senate lawmakers finally appear close to passing a bipartisan bill. House leadership, however, has refused to consider the bill unless a second, much more expensive "human infrastructure" bill comes through with it. Capitol Hill correspondent Abigail Robertson has the details on today's episode.
