The election is a week from today and the big question is, will Benjamin Netanyahu remain the prime minister?

He's on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.


President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan on Thursday and now millions of Americans will start to receive relief money. Biden says that the Rescue Plan is about rebuilding the backbone of this country and giving people in this nation a fighting chance.

President Joe Biden, via executive order, established a White House Gender Policy Council that will work with other governing bodies to develop what the administration describes as "gender equality" in domestic and foreign policies.

"Think about this, ISIS is literally at your door and they picked up their guns...These were not your typical warriors," Wendy Griffith explains. "When you talk about having courage, you have to be willing to die for what you believe in and they did. They thought it was worth paying that price to defend their towns, their families, and their livelihoods, and many did pay the ultimate price." 

In 2014, as the Islamic State swept through Northern Syria carrying out a campaign of terror, a group of Kurdish female fighters armed themselves with AK-47's and a lot of courage to defend what they held dear--their families and their homes.

CBN's Wendy Griffith spoke with Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, who closely followed this group during this time of battle, and she's on today's rundown to share how these courageous women became a force to be reckoned with. 




Thousands of migrants seeking their way to America are embarking on a deadly journey through hellish jungle terrain in part because they've been "lied to" about the safety of the trek, according to CBN's Chuck Holton, who is on the ground in Colombia. Smugglers are telling hopeful migrants the journey isn't that bad, only to lead them on a week long journey in which most are "robbed, raped or even killed" by bandits throughout the trail. 

Holton joins The Daily Rundown to discuss what he's seen firsthand. 


The United Nations Security Council is set to examine a political crisis in Myanmar today.

 Demonstrators have regularly flooded the streets of cities across the country since the military seized power and ousted elected governmental leaders in February.

 The protests have been deadly and Wednesday was the bloodiest day as security forces opened fire on crowds of people, killing at least 38.

 CBN News Senior International Correspondent Gary Lane is on today's episode to share how China is playing a big role in this coup.


Congressional Democrats are moving forward on an election reform bill that would move more control from states to the federal government.
