Failed Bank Chooses 'Wokeness' Over Stability
"Had to forgot man the article that I was reading through $83 billion from corporate organizations. Now that didn't go to the street hustlers all of it, it was these major corporations that were just that were just straight up woke and a lot of that was just fun fit to Democrat campaigns. I mean, it was a Money Heist is what it was, but all of these people want to virtue signal. You have to keep in mind that there are leaders, right? They're the people that will be the leaders, the little corrupt elites at the top at the top of the totem pole. The Gavin Newsom is the Joe Biden of the world. There's always going to be the useful idiots like an SB bank who double down on what was it? Was it? They doubled down on it says here had to have forgotten man. This from Justin news, as SVB investment failures mounted, the bank doubled down on its ideological commitments by pledging $5 billion in new green tech outlays despite signs of rising interest rates, negatively impacting that sector, some incidents, institutional and investors also began to raise concerns about the overall balance sheet. These foods were straight up woke and they were cricket as all get out as well, but this is all about creating a new morality, taking you away from government are God and bringing you to government. And here's what they want. They create these device of issues, CRT, DEI. Excuse me, the trans movement, and what these people, the useful idiots that they need, these people get all wrapped up in these issues. And so what these people start believing is, okay, they've got my back on this issue, so if they tell us that we should nationalize the banks, they're probably right there too.

Donald Trump on Afghanistan: The Greatest Disgrace in US History
"And we are honored to have my former boss with us here on our national radio show America first across the country. President Trump welcome back. Thank you very much Sebastian. Mister president, let's start at the beginning. How different was your approach to national security? There was no woke up under the U.S. Military when you were commander in chief, talk to our millions of lessons across the country about your plans for Afghanistan, the conditions based withdrawal and what we have witnessed the disaster we've witnessed in the last three weeks. Maybe the greatest, most embarrassing disaster we've ever witnessed in our country. The difference was almost first of all it was the opposite. It was the exact opposite. We knocked out ISIS. When I took in, when I took over, ISIS was all over the Middle East. We knocked out 100% of the ISIS caliphate. I noticed now they call it ISIS K so you'll explain that. But we knocked out 100% of the ISIS caliphate. We took out Al Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS. And you know what else and who else we took out? We took out plenty. And we were in total control in terms of Kabul and in terms of Afghanistan. They weren't even close to us. We were going to get people because I believe in getting at 21 years enough and we were like a police force over there and they've got to take care of themselves and as you know better than anybody at particular as soon as we leave, they would stop fighting. And they were fighting for a lot of money. They were among the highest paid soldiers in the world paid for by the American taxpayer. So that's exactly what happened. What we were going to do is get our citizens out, take out other people who deserve to be taken out. Then we're going to knock the hell out of the bases, but before we did that, we're going to take out all of our military equipment. I said down to the nails and the screws in the bolts. Everything out nice and easily. And then we take out the soldiers and probably blow up the bases because why should we give them to somebody else to use? So that was it. And Bagram, we were going to keep because bargara is near China and near Iran and also in Afghanistan. So it covered a lot of territory. So I would have kept that and it's a great area for exactly what it represents. So they spent billions and billions of dollars building it. That's the big Air Force Base. So I think the biggest in the world actually. So we would have kept that instead we fled like there was no reason for it. The soldiers come out last and the army, the military comes out last. After the people and after all of the $83 billion worth of the most highly sophisticated military equipment anywhere in the world, it is a disgrace what's taken

"And President Trump coming into town. On September 11th surprising great men and women in blue in the New York Police Department at a precinct and then going to the F D. N y at one of the station houses. And he also put out a video statement where he held nothing back and he slammed President Biden for the pullout of Afghanistan. Take a listen This is the 20th year of this war and should have been a year of victory and honor and strength. Instead, Joe Biden and his inept administration surrendered in defeat. So rendered in defeat. Is that how you feel that this is going to have repercussions for years? Upon years Upon years, the number is 1 808 489 to 2 to 1 808 489222 Here's a little bit more about President Trump and kind of hinting. That he's going to be coming back. We will live on. But sadly, our country will be wounded. For a long period of time. We will struggle to recover from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused. Do not fear, however, America will be made great again. So when you hear America will be great again. Sure, sounds like he is planning a comeback and boy when you're looking at the world falling apart, you kind of go. You know what we really do need somebody who's going to tell the Taliban what we really think of them and keep them in line not just for America before the world. And he also talked about the equipment that was left behind in Afghanistan. That is such a disgrace that is now in Taliban hands. We had $85 billion of the finest and most sophisticated military equipment. Taken from us without even a shot. Being fired. Taken from us without even a shot. We handed over all that equipment. And in fact, today, it was such a joke. Um, because Blinken was saying, Oh, well, you know, they cannot necessarily use the equipment that it's going to be inoperable and that they won't be able to maintain it. That is a bunch of hogwash. You think if they have $83 billion worth of equipment that they can't get somebody who's a mechanic who knows how to use some of that stuff? Are you kidding me? You fly in a technical expert, and suddenly you pay them X amount of day. And guess what? Suddenly you've got someone who's going to make that equipment operable. I mean, that is just insane. That is the most ridiculous statement I've ever heard. Well, things were so bad today that Leon Panetta, who is a former chief of staff for President Obama, remember when President Biden was vice president. This is what he had to say. He just said that Listen, this president needs to come clean. Joe Biden has a lot of experience. He knows foreign policy is known for a long time. He knows you know that the adversaries that base our country and what needs to be done to deal with our adversaries. Look Presidents make mistakes, just like anybody else. I think the most important thing for this president to do is to be willing to accept responsibility for the mistakes and to move on. And to basically do what is necessary now to protect our national security. Do you ever see this President accepting responsibility? I don't see it. And I think it has made it so much worse, that he won't even concede that hear anybody on his team made a mistake. And to me. I just think it is absolutely shameful. Do you ever see him claiming responsibility? I don't see it on the horizon. And it's so bad that Leon Panetta again is criticizing him, saying he's got to make a mistake. He's got to say it. He's got to say I screwed up that I listened to bad advice, but he's not going to do it. I do not foresee that happening well. Mike Morrell, former top CIA official again, also during the Obama time Uh, had even more ominous words talking about the state of Afghanistan today, and this is what he had to say over the weekend as a huge warning of what's now to come and again. These are Democrats talking guys. These are not Republicans. I think that The Taliban winning the war in Afghanistan. And then the way our exit. Happened. Has absolutely inspired jihadist all over the world. Um The Taliban is saying, We just didn't defeat the United States. We defeated NATO, We defeated the world's greatest military power ever. So there's a celebration going on. Wow. We didn't just defeat the United States. We defeated NATO. We defeated the world's biggest superpower, and he believes that it is now inspired jihadist territory in Afghanistan as a result of what happened by the way that President Biden did this, and this is a Democrat, saying it It's refreshing to finally hear the truth from a Democrat, saying that about President Biden. Well, here's a little bit more of Mike Morel again. Top CIA official under Obama, explaining more why he thinks that this is going to be more precarious in Afghanistan as a result of Joe Biden's actions specifically Not only will jihadist be inspired, but a lot of them are going to come to Afghanistan to be part of the celebration to be hard to be part of jihadist central. So after 9 11 they all scattered from Afghanistan. I think we're going to see a flow back in, and that's one of the things that makes Afghanistan more dangerous than other spots on the planet. Wow, that is really scary that now Afghanistan has basically become jihadists Central and that crazy loony Koizumi's from all over the world are going to be coming in and gravitating to Afghanistan because they know it's fertile territory for terrorists because Biden left in such a hurry and let them all in control. And that's why he says. It's worse than 9 11 that is really frightening. I know Mike Morrell. Mike Morel is a pretty straight talker. In terms of things. He is definitely a Democrat and a loyalist and the fact that he is coming out and saying This is absolutely damning 1 808 489 to 2 to 1 808 489222 Let's go to Elena in Teaneck, New Jersey, Elena your thoughts Hello. Read a pleasure to talk to you again. You two, you two always love hearing from you, Elena. Thank you, Rita. You're absolutely right. Mr Biden did make a tremendous mistake. It's funny that Finally, Mr Blinken said, and agreed to that. That's unusual. From today's administration. But this mistake now wait a minute. Where did you think Blinken agreed to it? I didn't hear him a great Blinken agreeing to it. Why don't he didn't agree to it directly. But by saying that President Biden has to come queen means there's something dirty and that, but that wasn't him. That was Leon Panetta. That was the former chief of staff. Oh, yeah. Oh, my God, By the way, that would have been a bombshell. In fact, Blinken was the opposite. Blinken was like, Oh, you know, we did that this way. That's the way it's supposed to be, and we followed. There was no indication things would fall. I mean, he was like an alternate universe, Elena, like toeing the party line..

"What's first, Josh? Only hours after the bodies of 13 fallen American heroes were transferred to Dover Air Force Base and what the military calls a dignified transfer. Our nation's vice president suggested to the State Department that America hold a candlelight vigil to memorialize valiant Taliban and Isis freedom fighters. Who had sacrificed their lives defending their homeland. I don't know where to start with This is totally insulting to all our military personnel who fought the terrorists. These terrorists weren't fighting for anyone's freedom, including their own. Their culture is Islamist dictatorship. That statement is beyond stupid. She needs to be impeached. U. S. MILITARY BASES HOUSING Afghanistan evacuees are building their own city type leadership organizations to deal with sanitation, food and other challenges as the numbers of Afghans coming into the US grows. Air Force General Glenn Van Herck, who heads U. S Northern Command, said there were over 25,000 Afghan evacuees being housed at the bases. He acknowledged there have been problems at the bases as they grapple with language, cultural and other issues. He said that he's building eight small cities. We're going to have challenges, he said, the basis of designated in military officer as a mayor to be in charge of a couple dorms or housing units. And an Afghan counterpart who can communicate about any ongoing issues, he said. Northern Command has asked the D O D for additional linguists who are fluent and can speak with the Afghans. Our military will eventually be able to house as many as 50,000 Afghanistan. Evacuees at the eight bases around the country and it won't likely need to tap additional facilities, said General Van Herck, who is also the head of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD. Afghans at the bases are divided with single males and single females in separate housing and families walled off in their own sections, where possible to provide privacy. This seems to be a very valid way to treat these people since we don't seem to be doing a very good job in ensuring that these Afghans are really in the group that we promised to bring here. There are likely some active terrorists in the group. Dealing with them will be a challenge. In the final days of the withdrawal, the US balanced loading or destroying equipment with the need to evacuate people out of Afghanistan. Some of the equipment was taken out on flights demilitarized at the airport or destroyed in controlled blasts. A U. S official confirmed to CBS News last week that our military was conducting controlled explosions of ammunition at the airport to lighten the airlift load before departing. The pieces that were left behind at the airport and demilitarized were either too big, like the M raps, which can weigh 14 tons or were old pieces of equipment belonging to the now toppled Afghan air force that were largely defunct, anyway. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. Quote they can't operate them. We made sure to demilitarize to make unusable all the gear that is at the airport. The only thing we left operable are a couple of fire trucks and forklifts so that the airport can remain more operational going forward, end quote. There is still equipment outside the airport that the Taliban took control of when it overran the Afghan forces in the lead up to the fall of Kabul on August 15th. Kirby said. Our military does not have an exact inventory of the equipment. The Taliban now has Our military and coalition partners evacuated over 123,000 civilians and what was the largest non combatant evacuation in our military's history? The operation ended one minute before the deadline of August 31st on the East Coast. The mission ended without completing the evacuation of U. S citizens and many vulnerable Afghans. There's a lot of heartbreak associated with this departure. We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out. All told the Pentagon left behind tens of billions of dollars worth of equipment given to Afghan security forces, the U. S government spent $83 billion to train and equip the Afghan army, according to the special inspector general for Afghanistan, reconstruction. The Pentagon and White House had maintained that Afghan army ranks totaled 300,000 soldiers, but in reality, there were far fewer. So our government decided to abandon all this equipment and many Americans in Afghan allies just to run away by a fixed date. Why didn't we have changed the date? Why didn't we start taking things out? Months or years ago? You know, like the Russians did when they pulled out a couple of decades ago, We left a lot of working equipment. There we look like and are total losers. This is a total disaster by every standard. Oh, and I've spoken to some of the people still actually getting our people out their biggest problem. Our State Department. And that's the news. As Americans is our responsibility to ensure that our nation is well run and on the right path.

Or we need to get our $83 billion worth of equipment out or they painted over the George Floyd mural. Well, that's it. We're going there. We're going now. Yeah. I don't really see how we can't go back now, if they have not if George meant anything. And we've all been told that he did. Well, look at what's this guy's general Milley? Miley?

Then he will do it. Whatever, Biden says, even if What Biden says doesn't make any sense. Like we're going to have zero electricity emissions by 2020 Heard that not realizing that was a year ago. Uh, poor guy. Yeah. Biden was also upset because some protesters were, uh, you know, mocking him. Apparently at some point yesterday about the Afghanistan situation, and all you can think of a state to say was they they don't understand. They just don't understand. You know the deal? Yeah, that's what they don't understand. Yeah, There was a moment yesterday where an angry guy yelled at Biden and said you resign. You tyrant. That audio? Yeah, that audience far away.

"The stories that I'm reading and seeing and the people that I'm talking to that are that are telling me More reports out their business inside of the Taliban is using our weapons, said Joe gave them including, you know Black Hawk helicopters and drones, all the weaponry the billions of dollars and weaponry to crush the Panjshir, Uh, Panjshir Valley Freedom fighters. Why didn't we give that equipment to them? So they have a fighting chance for their country. No. They're getting killed with our equipment. It's unbelievable. Taliban butchers this pregnant policewoman. I told you that before. That's the news from Lake woebegone in Afghanistan, the Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan. 809 41, Sean Toll free number. Nathan and Minnesota. Hey, Nathan, How are you? How's it going? Thanks for taking my call. I really appreciate it. Thank you, sir. So I just wanted to take a second here and talk about accountability for a second. Sean. I spent seven years in the Marine Corps. I did two tours in Afghanistan. I actually spent some time training Afghan soldiers and and teaching them and from my time as a PFC of private first class the time I joined the Marine Corps until the time I got out of the sergeant. One thing one thing that we would talk about all the time is accountability, accountability for your gear, accountability for the people around you, but more specifically right now I want to talk about gear accountability, and here's the reason. There's a term that we talk about, or that that most service members will know and it's called a missing gear statement. A missing gear statement is when you lose your gear, your responsible for it, and that's down to the dime. Sean down to the dime if I lose a pair of gloves I am responsible for that equipment. So we had $83 billion worth of gear and assets left over in Afghanistan. My question is. Where is this missing? Gear statement going? Who is responsible for this missing your statement, Nathan. As horrible as this is And what's so frustrating to me is that and it's why I showed the map now for weeks on T V. In March of this year, April May, June July of this year, the Taliban they were wiping out the Afghan army that Joe Biden was bragging about in July as one of the best trained forces in the in the world and even have an air force and there's only 75,000 Taliban. He said it when they had already taken over 50 60% of the country. And you didn't lift a finger. You know what you know, It's funny about that. Sean. Here's the thing is, you can have an army that big, but when you remove every single one of the supporting assets that are involved to keep that army running What do you think? Happens to that army? It falls apart. They don't have a chance. So now we've got all this gear left behind. We've got an army that can't sustain itself. But where are these? Where are these Joint chiefs of staff? Where these where these generals that are supposed to be being paid. Boo koo box at the top of the chain of command going. Hey, guys, Maybe we need to rethink this strategy a little bit. Um that that that moment has come and gone. And we had every opportunity with every bit of intelligence. I am telling you, the the intelligence community's AP Pope Lactic I've been telling you seven weeks ago, the CIA pulled out there people. I've been telling you. They were not shy in telling the Biden administration how dire this was. The Defense Department. How dire this was the state Department how dire this was. They can't claim they didn't know. And it's meaningless now, but I will tell you one day there will be this paper trail. Nobody who care at the time except people like me that are just, you know, Hannity, you're in the weeds again. And we're going to see in real time. The admonitions the warnings the dire warnings of what was happening. And how they needed to expedite the withdrawal while they had control of Kabul they needed to push back the Taliban on the move on the march that was the essence of the Trump plan. Trump plan was conditions on the ground based and it was based on a threat that was real that we will obliterate you and no by that, they said. We killed Soleimani, Baghdadi and Associates, the Al Qaeda leader in Yemen, and yet we kicked the living Adam Schiff out of the caliphate. We'll do it to you. And not a single American died in 18 months. The last year the Trump presidency, not one, not one American died. You wouldn't because they believed him. I know his tweets offend some people. Well, it never offended me, and I always said it was feigned outrage. Nathan. You're a great American, sir. Thank you. Good points about the missing gear. Uh, Sonia is in Indiana. Hey, Sonia. Glad you called. Thanks for hanging in there. Hi, Sean. Thanks for taking my call. Um, pleasure talking to you. And I just wanted to share something that Sarah Carter inspired me to do. Um, you know, I'm just, uh civilian. Nobody. And I watch your show all the time. But sometimes lately I can't even stomach watching it because of all the truth that you share with us.

And we're going to try to put together the strategies and look for common sources of resources that can be a benefit, helping extract those individuals. And so we're here in Congress today. And and that's going to be our request will talk to me, sir. Let me interrupt for a second talking to Congressman Jim Barrett of the Indiana fourth District. How are you going to get these Americans out? What is the conversation you've been having with your fellow members here about what can be done considering the commander in chief is the one who directs our military. That's the that's the That is true, And that's the reason that we've got a commander in chief that has demonstrated weakness. And so we have veterans organizations that are working behind the scenes, uh, and have Have contact with some of those individuals and working to get them extracted. And so I'm not going to give all the details about that, Tony because I think it's just important to go black as they call it. Go dark. In order to not jeopardize those people. Some of them are in hiding. They were close to getting through some of the checkpoint. And yet, yet they were turned back. And so now they're his first out into the community. And so we've got organizations that are working to try and help them and I'm not going to reveal all the details of that. But part of the purpose for us being here in Congress today. It's simply to to expand and expand on those opportunities that we have share information that we think is useful. One of the things that you hear from the Biden administration right now, and you're hearing from people like the chief of staff, Ron Clain, who is retweeting. Anybody in the media who is friendly to a point of nauseam. Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post, saying We didn't leave $83 billion worth of hardware behind. But we left 33 Black Hawk helicopters, 164,000 machine guns, 126,000 pistols. We left armored equipment behind without destroying it. We left it for the Taliban provides China or utilized on on their own. But you have people who are celebrating. Finally, the war is over, and Joe Biden did what No other president Was willing to do as you see it, sir. Should the United States have withdrawn from Afghanistan? And is that really the focus of the conversation? Or is it the focus of how we withdrew? Really? The focus is on how we look through and and this exit strategy, which there really was, was in reverse of what we think should have happened. And the fact that we've left all of that military equipment behind. It's your people, so it makes it extremely hard. For us to move back in and try to, uh, take any kind of counter operation militarily at this point, and so we've emboldened and enhanced a country really, We've turned the country over to terrorist type organizations and make it a hotbed. And that concerns me from the standpoint that in the future in the future, we're going to deal with this for decades. Not just not just talking about. Oh, great. We're celebrating the war is over. That's really not true, because what is really going to happen with them emboldened this country to serve as a terrorist hotbed, and they're going to continue because they've been in molded. We're going to continue to look for ways to, uh to attack Americans. Talking to Congressman Jim Baird of the Indiana fourth District serving in Vietnam, as you have, Sir, Bronze Star awarded along with the Purple Heart. As Congress does reconvene. Never mind what you're doing today. You're going to hear from President Biden today on this on the end of military operations in Afghanistan, and Congress is going to move forward. Many people are gonna assume on the political left move forward as if nothing has gone on. Talk to me about those people you speak to on the other side of the aisle. And is there some common ground on looking at how this has happened? And holding President Biden accountable? Will that happen? Yeah. I think that's a good point. Tony and interesting.

"W. ABC. Good morning, Dominic. It's very nice that you've taken my call. Of course I I just wanted to say one thing. I too, have mixed feelings as you do, And I'm sure many people do about Biden coming to the memorial. It's just a sad thing that this is a man that is in office that people voted for primarily because of their hatred of Trump. And that's a sad fact. And I guess that's what divides our country, but it is with mixed feelings that I will be watching and how do you think it's going to go over? Some callers? More than one have said that people in the White House has not announced Camille whether or not the president will speak. But some of our callers has said that the people that are there should turn their back on on him. What do you think of that? Well, if they did have the opportunity to do that, it would be a good idea, but I just don't think they're going to be that close or anyone near him to be able to do that. And I also hope that he doesn't speak. Because he is horrific in his speeches happened for bed. He'd go off script, and I really don't want to hear about his son dying anymore. Well, thank you. Thank you for the call. Let's go to, uh to Doug. You know, I stopped for a second. I pause for a second to consider whether or not should comment on the issue of his son. I'll deal with that dynamic and in a few minutes here, But let's go to Doug, who's calling this morning from New Jersey. Good morning, Doug. What's on your mind? Good morning, Dominic Dominic. The consequences of his actions are so destructive to this to the future of this country. He deserves absolutely no respect whatsoever. And if I had the opportunity, I would turn my back. Think it is Doug? Nobody really talked about it. They got $83 billion worth of sophisticated military equipment. How many thousands of people in the future are going to die because of their access to that equipment that is like that is a very, very good point, Doug very good point. Country, Doug, uh, in terms of them, potentially attacking our country again. And finally think of the consequences. As far as China is concerned, you know that they're twice as likely to invade Taiwan, which means potentially thousands of more Americans will die. And for what he is a despicable forget whether you're a Democrat, Republican or a communist. He is a despicable human being, and he has shown time and again. Over the last several months, just a small example with him looking at his watch. It shows the character of a human being. And he has displayed that character for years. And yet people put him in the White House because they hated a guy because he tweeted Let's bring back Mother Teresa. While we're at it. He is a disgrace as a human being. As I said, if I had the chance I turned my back and yell. Whatever I could add him. He deserved absolutely no respect whatsoever. And that's my opinion. I thank you for your for your telephone call. As I have said, I'm torn. Uh, I don't approve of what happened in Afghanistan, but at the same time he's still the president of the United States.

Came out this week and in an article and advisor perspective, saying that these the black Swan guy and this seemed to live. Yeah, uh, same Bitcoin is worthless and kind of makes this case for that. Um, what's worthless? Yeah, There's only 21 million of them at Red Max. It's 19 million. Now. It's uh I think market cap is up there, right it trillion or Close to it. The crypto crypto overall market is about a trillion and a half to know it's two trillion right now, Julian. I think Bitcoins about half of that. Okay? What's going on, he says. Half that market is worthless. What's going to happen to the little ones anyway? You can cover that. The little ones are going to go away to write would be a few left over almost like the you know the speculative bubble of, uh of the Internet space. Yep, the Internet did change the world. Both these companies did go under. After the tech wreck. You had a few survivors. Um and then you had a whole new crop of innovators come behind that. That really created, um what became the next part of the Internet boom. And we haven't seen that yet in crypto, Um what's going underneath, which I think is a big concern from kind of the pipes of how crypto works is Lot of the buying and selling that goes on goes through what's called A stable coin. Um U. S dollar tether is a big one under lots of scrutiny. Will not read they they say they have, um, an audit. Assurance paper, but not an actual audit. They won't tell you what's going on with their Um, where there? Is there supposed to be stable Dollar? Yeah. So, like a money market, But they won't. They won't tell you what they own. Okay? And if you've ever Gone to a money market website. You can tell what they own right. They tell you what they are, and it's not a big secret. But the 65 billion and tether they won't tell you because they want to respect their banking relationships. They're under investigation. They just got banned in Canada. Um, a large part of the buying. Crypto happens in tether. The concern is If you don't know what they own, where the money comes from, How do you dollars get exchanging it tethers and who's doing it? There's a case to be made that maybe they're just issuing them without actually. Having the money having the money, okay? Or they're doing. A bond swap type of deal with Things that Are not swappable in a crisis. Well, yeah, okay. And so that's out of 2.2 Trillion 2.22 trillion right now. Global crypto. So they make up $83 billion. Yeah. Billion dollars. And Bitcoin. You're right is almost half the market ethereum and Bitcoin makeup. Yeah. Wow. Two thirds of the market a little over. And then everybody else, including tether, Right? Okay, so you know, then you got ripple. And finance coin. So you know, dodge going still alive? I know at 30 cents. No, that's crazy. So that's there. There. There you go with toys corn. Alright, so, but one of the tenants of what we call the volatility machine is that when there's tons of excess liquidity Searching for things to put money into. Um you often find inflated values in areas where you otherwise would not, and you've seen that in emerging markets for the past 100 years. And right.

"We dug into that and and I put we published our findings at Forbes the Forbes column and thank you very much for highlighting this. Has nearly a half million views on it now, and it basically set the standard for national and international reporting from major news agencies. The the information was this. This was made public. In other words you didn't have to do dig it out as so often you have to do this was right there. So it was. It was on the Web. We did. We did read all the reports and we dug it out. And here's what happened after we published the investigation, and we can get into all the details here this evening because it's pretty extraordinary. Those audit reports within hours were erased from those federal website. We now know because we have the State Department on record that they issued the directive to pull down those audit reports, which were just quantified equipment and U. S taxpayers support didn't have anything to do with exposing Afghan nationals or other assets on the ground. It was only the equipment that taxpayers had provided. Uh and those audit reports were pulled off line. After the fact that hardly seems like there's any point to that I mean, other than something else that they did wrong. I mean, if you're going to do that, you have to do it before it's been made public, right? So, yes, it was mystifying to us, because the news reports. They're pretty clear on this that we left. The Taliban biometric information on all of our Afghan allies. We left the Taliban lift. We came to the Taliban with lists of Afghan nationals who had helped us over the course. The last 20 years that we wanted to evacuate. We asked for the Taliban help by name to get these folks out of the country and evacuation. Yes, The Taliban obviously is history of murdering those folks. And and so the Biden administration was perfectly transparent with the Taliban. On the other side. On the other hand, they were ripping down U. S taxpayer provided guns, ammunition and military style equipped military equipment that the Taliban already controlled. The only purpose for that, it seems, was to forestall transparency so they couldn't be held accountable so the bite administration could be held accountable. For the equipment going to the other side. Now, The Pentagon has said that some of this equipment, especially the sensitive equipment, was in fact blown up or otherwise disabled before we left. Do you have anything on that? So that's you know, that's good news. We, uh we heard stories and they were published in the media that you know are the soldiers our men and women, You know, they took the keys to the Humvees. So they you know, are they made, you know certain assets. Non operable. Um And so there's a couple of different thoughts with that one is taxpayers still paid for that it's still left behind, even if it is inoperable. Number two is that for sophisticated assets There wasn't a lot of time. Obviously, we didn't even get all the Americans out of the country. So much less. Take care of all the equipment that was left in the country, right? I mean, that only stands to reason. We just didn't have time to do it, so a lot of the secrets can be inspected and reverse engineered by the Russians and Chinese And one can certainly assume that that would be the case. In terms of of, uh The dollar value. It sounds like at least on paper. This would make Afghanistan at least a regional minor power militarily. Well, it would and think about this $83 billion worth of equipment and training over 20 years. Three billion Last year, the Biden administration was asking Congress and the president's budget for to Congress. For next year for 3.3 billion. They were going to increase the amount of money on equipment and training into the Afghan security forces. There was going to be no peace dividend. Uh, we found that interesting up. But Afghanistan is A small backward economy. Think about this. It only has $11 billion worth of organic gross domestic product. If you take away the United States subsidy at nine billion a year, they got about a $20 billion economy. But about nine billion of that was us. Organically. They only have about 11 billion. It's super small. They have the same amount of people as the state of California. California has an economy of over $3 trillion So we poured. We stuff this little nation, four of military equipment and guns and all kinds of different things. $83 billion. They never had the capacity to absorb any of this.

I mean, we we what we saw over the weekend. I'm still thinking from Friday, right Friday. We saw how crazy and chaotic things were. The All of a sudden the Taliban came out of nowhere and took over everything. We're still trying to figure out what the heck happened. Why did we leave 100 and some odd Blackhawk helicopters there? Why didn't we evacuate the American citizens that were working as civilian contractors working in the embassy? I mean, there's so much right now there's zero plan. I just read a report of an hour ago. If that It says that right now, the State Department has no plan to get Americans out of Afghanistan unless they are already in Kabul. That is so despicable to hear when you think about the billion spent on Afghan army ultimately benefiting the Taliban. We're talking about two decades cost of $83 billion, and Afghan security forces collapsed so quickly and the ultimate benefit beneficiary of this American investment turned out to be the Taliban. They grabbed. Not only like you said tons of equipment, but then political power US supplied found firepower, guns and Emissions helicopters. They cleaned house. They captured an array of our military equipment and and the and Afghan forces failed to defender District centres Rich what is going on here? You know, this is really troubling to me because I want to say, Oh, Joe Biden blundering mistake. He's ruining things. He's being Joe El Bobbo. So Biden like I like to call him on my show, But I really got to say, I think this is much worse. I think it's much more sinister. I really think that this was some sort of, uh Something that he intended to happen because you cannot make a mistake of this magnitude this badly. The only other thought I have is that you know what they said that were coming in. And somehow they were afraid they were afraid. Oh my gosh. These radical goat herders with rocket launchers on their shoulders are going to come and take over and I can't see the American military afraid. Of that fight, But that seems to be what happened. And they just everybody got out Biden polls, Everybody out leaves everybody behind and it really is inexplicable to me, and it does open the door. I think to some of our enemies who have a well established presence there in Afghanistan like China and like Russia. Yeah, without a doubt. I mean, listen, Joe Biden announced what it was in April that he was withdrawing all U. S troops. The intelligence agencies didn't foresee a Taliban, You know, uh, showdown of this magnitude, so to speak. But in my opinion, the the rapid drawdown of U. S forces sent a signal to the Afghan national forces that they were basically being abandoned. And the problem of the US withdrawal is that It didn't just send that to the to the to the Afghan forces, but it sends a nationwide signal that it's up, You know, a nationwide signal. Everyone read the same way and and the Afghan government troops were slowly but steadily losing the war and this was happening right under our nose. And, of course, Biden is to blame. Yeah, well again, I mean, Biden says, whose fault is it? It's Donald Trump's fault. I think, uh, listen, you can That seems to be the trend. Right? Let's blame Trump for absolutely everything. But unfortunately here this is something that I mean, Biden is the president, he says. Interestingly, the buck stops with me. I'm the president of the United States, however, does it really because as soon as they get to him, he says, Well, you look at the Trump administration, then his press secretary, who I like to call Jennifer Circle back, Masaki Silent P, of course. She goes ahead and says, Oh, well, You know what? It's also the Trump Administration. We can't forget it was Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama that allowed this I don't know his name. I forget the pronunciation. But the current mastermind of this Taliban takeover of Kabul was allowed out on that prisoner exchange in exchange for Bowe, Bergdahl. Oh, yeah, This is this is their problem. They made this problem If you want to get conspiratorial, which I tend to stay away from. But if you want to get conspiratorial, one thing we could say is did Obama set this up years ago, giving them all this lead time? And not as Biden come and say, Hey, it's merry Christmas to the Taliban. We're gonna give you a bunch of planes. We're gonna give you a bunch of guns. You do whatever you want. Oh, this is humiliation. And of the approximately 145 billion the U. S government spent trying to rebuild Afghanistan about 83 billion went to developing and sustaining its army and police forces And then the 145 billion is in addition to the 137 billion to your point that the United States spent fighting the war, which began with an invasion back in October of 2000 and one to remind everybody So this is this proceeds Trump going back to the Democrats, right and and again, like Right now, we're at a really bad place. There's too much money being wait that that got wasted and and now no one can account for it. Yeah. And you know, when you talk about October 2001 George W. Bush who again was you know, I think a appropriate and correct and and going into Afghanistan because they were hiding the bad guys that had just murdered many thousands of Americans. And it was like, Hey, how do we How do we get these guys? Let's go get them What we learned the hard way was. It's very difficult to find the bad guys that are hiding in the mountains of Afghanistan and we had to change the way we trained our troops. We have to change a lot of things in order to kind of succeed in this new modern warfare, And I think, after all these decades, at least since 2014 there hasn't been combat operations in Afghanistan. They've been doing their own thing with their military that you talked about and whether they've been disheartened or not. That's a separate story, but I think the United States achieved the goal that they had. And, yeah, you could start pulling people out. Trump talked about pulling people out, but pulling people out at this rate where you're leaving behind your equipment, and you're leaving behind civilians that are American citizens. Um, it's just reckless in a responsible Yeah, without a doubt, and you know, back to back to your 2000 and one take over there in October that we mentioned Reagan. I mean, he he laid the groundwork for something really great to happen..

"What happened in Libya? Um and it's happening again, so and the other one was is we didn't want South Asia to become unstable. China was a growing power and a growing threat. We needed Indian account of China and so stable South Asia much good for that, and it's very like I said. It's a very modest price. A couple of 100 so 1000 soldiers who are not fighting and dying had taken a castle in a year and a half. Um, where we weren't actually spending all that much money. We were counterbalancing China and the terrorists and we were doing it very effectively and very cheaply. Now we're we're being tremendously successful Nation building. Probably not. But But I would say want our interests were protected. The other thing. Is that okay? Yeah. Okay. Maybe we didn't build a wonderful nation like Germany and Japan. But The economy was growing every year. Women could go in the workplace. It was actually one of the freest society so limited the entire grade of Middle East. An entire generation of Children grew up, not knowing about the rule of the Taliban. So this is not the worst of all possible outcomes and and to be honest for all the experts that we've had Republicans and Democrats, the guy that figured this out the best was Donald Trump, who came in and said Look, this Nation building is nonsense. With. On the other hand, I don't want to abandon the Afghan people, and I don't want to turn the country over to China, and I don't want to turn over the country to terrorists. So let's get to a sustainable footprint that accomplishes something good and to find a way forward. And if we do great if we don't we have a sustainable footprint will counter these guys and we'll call it a day. It was not Trump's fault. The Biden came in and basically said, no, we're just going to leave. We're just going to take the safety net and see what happens. And this is exactly what Obama did in Iraq. We walked away and we've got Isis what he did in Syria. We walked. We walked away from the red line. We've got a genocide. It's what he did in Libya. We walked away. We've got Benghazi. But of course, Biden is going to do the same thing because it's all the same people running the government. It's You know, be nice here, enemy, turn your back on him and hope for the best, and it never works out. Well, 18665 Oh, Jimbo to Andy in Butler, Pennsylvania. Good evening, Mr Bohannon. And good evening to your guests. I'm sorry. I didn't catch the name. His name is Jim Carafano. He's vice President for, uh, National security and foreign policy studies at the Heritage Foundation. Mr. Carafano, it is a pleasure to talk to you. I remember a long time ago. Well, right now we have untold America. Untold numbers of Americans a few 1000. Let's say, um, in Afghanistan who have trouble getting out, and we just gave them $83 billion worth of equipment. We gave the Taliban $83 billion worth of equipment or whatever the total is a lot, okay? Right. We gave the Taliban $83 billion worth of equipment. Now I remember a certain colonel along time ago who got a bunch of trouble for trading arms for hostages. And here. We didn't even get the trade. We gave them the arms and they still have the hostages. So he had to appear before Congress. That would be Oliver North for those who don't happen to remember. Back to the Iran Contra. They It's all right, Jim Carafano. Your thoughts. Well, look, he actually raises a really good point is This has to be seriously investigated by Congress. Not not, too, because it's a partisan thing, but because our government catastrophically failed, and and this is America When that happens, we investigate that We did it after Pearl Harbor. We did it after 9 11. We should do it here. And you know, I I am out positive that Congresswoman Pelosi, having now heard from the FBI that there actually was no interaction and her entire interruption. Investigation is literally a joke that she would take those assets and those resources and begin an investigation of what happened in Afghanistan Because clearly as a disaster, and clearly we should know why. And should we should know who is responsible for that? Come. 18665 Oh, Jimbo, Back in a moment, everybody Jay Farner here, CEO of rocket, mortgage and rocket.
