When We Make Decisions Based on Diversity Instead of Competency, America Suffers
"That when we start to organize society, or when we start to make decisions based on things that people can not change versus on things they can change such as diversity or skin color, not competency and excellence, then all of a sudden you're going to start to see society suffer because of it. And a great example of this is what happened in Afghanistan, which I think we've forgot about way too quickly. What happened in Afghanistan was a publican international humiliation where we gave $85 billion to the Taliban. We gave up the Bagram air base. The sacrifices of so many military members went for not. And let me be very clear. I was all for ending the war in Afghanistan. But if all of a sudden I said, hey, you know, you're the kidney that gets removed. You take out a pocket knife and you start to do, like, that's not a good idea, okay? Go to a professional who knows what they're doing. There's a good way and a bad way to do something that needs to be done. And getting out of Afghanistan, Robinson, hey, let's arm the enemy, give the embassy up, not patrol the air base, Americans are stranded for months on end, give China the upper hand with the entire evacuation, give up the strategic air base. And the reason in the opinion of, I think anyone looks at it objectively, is that the head of the United States military, Mark milley along with Lloyd Austin and Joe Biden, if you consider him to be the head of anything, which is, which is, they were testifying in front of Congress back in June, saying that the existential threat to America was white rage, and that we're not going to apologize for implementing critical race theory diversity equity inclusion or this sort of new history into the military. Into the military of all places. The military that by definition, every person here should want the military to be a place where competency ranks that you don't land the plane, your national security is at risk. You're not able to eliminate the enemy, your national security is at risk. Should all of a sudden, we'd be worrying about these arbitrary academic exercises of diversity equity inclusion or saying, hey, we have the greatest fighting force in the history of the world, probably not worth messing that up for some sort of esoteric abstract academic
Sen. Marsha Blackburn's Impression of Congressional Hearing With Military Generals
"Well listen I watched this hearing today most of it and you were really quite brilliant the way that you insisted on short answers so they wouldn't filibuster And he wanted some of the very very important topics Tell me what your takeaway is from this hearing My takeaway from death is that you had general McKinsey listening to general Miller who was there on the ground in Afghanistan General McKinsey is it sent Tom They passed the information up to Austin and mellie that you could not do a speedy withdrawal If you did it to Taliban was going to move in and take control that you had to take keep control of the embassy Bagram airfield and put some additional people at HKS airport in order to facilitate the exit Joe Biden didn't want to hear any of that And what is of is really frustrating I think to a lot of the men and women in uniform and a lot of our veterans is that you didn't have million Austin really forcing the issue of but mister president you can't do what you want to do and get people out of Afghanistan And keep the government system in the country And Joe Biden was focused on a date certain so that he could go out there and have his victory dance on September 11th and say hey look at me I'm the guy I ended this war And Mark it is like he missed the entire point of this We were Uh oh Did we lose the senator I guess we did the war on terror for a reason

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords
"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe. Trump deserves a nobel peace prize for the abraham accords. I doubt that he's going to get it. But if you don't win a nobel peace prize for creating peace with four arab countries and israel. What's the price

Taliban Announces Formation of New Afghan Government
"The taliban announced a new government in afghanistan. that's not likely to get a lot of support from western nations. It does not include any women or members from the last afghan government's leadership instead. This new interim government is stacked with taliban veterans who were in charge of the hardline government. Twenty years ago. Several of them are listed by the us and united nations as global terrorists. For example. the key post of interior minister was given to a man. Who's on the fbi's most wanted list. He led a network. That's blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings and he's believed is still holding at least one american hostage besides him. Other cabinet members used to be inmates at guantanamo detention camp and at least one of the leaders is said to have ties to the al qaeda terror group that was responsible for the attacks on nine eleven. The taliban says these appointments are temporary but they have not said how long the last who is going to take over next or if there might be elections for now. The taliban is also urging foreign diplomats embassies consulates and humanitarian organisations to come back to afghanistan all western nations left when. Us troops withdrew last month. The us and other countries also froze afghanistan's funding. That's desperately needed as much as eighty percent of the country's budget comes from the international community but global leaders in lenders say they're waiting to see how the taliban will treat the opposition women and minorities before they send money

Tony Blinken Puts a Spin on America’s Successful Surrender to the Taliban
"How do you have a diplomatic mission without an embassy. How do you have a diplomatic mission when you had to close your embassy at a fears that your own citizens would have to be killed where we had to bring the flag down. How exactly does diplomacy work with that. Tony blinken you see. One of the great misnomers is that diplomacy can solve everything when it comes down to diplomacy is only effective when you have a big sword and a stick than the person across the table from you if you're going to rely solely on diplomacy with evil people. I got a book by neville chamberlain to sell you. Cut thirty one. Us military flights and ended in our troops department afghanistan. A new chapter of america's engagement with afghanistan has begun. It's one in which we will lead with our diplomacy. The military missions over a new diplomatic mission has begun the diplomatic mission that we don't have an embassy and we have no way to actually execute it now. Do you notice how they are. Experts not governing but at deflecting and dodging one thing. That blinken is very good. At is changing words get not necessarily always changing definitions but changing the essence of what is being set. A great example is when he was asked the other day. I think we have this tape. We played it earlier. But it's worth playing again when they said well. Did you give this to the taliban he said i didn't give lists. We gave over manifests but isn't a manifesto list. I know but we gave her a manifest. You asked if i gave over lists. We didn't give a list. We call it a manifest. therefore it's not a list play. Take the idea that we shared lists of of americans or others with the taliban is simply wrong. What was share in specific so in specific. Instances when you're trying to get a bus or a group of people through End you need to show a manifest to do that because particularly in cases where people don't have the necessary credentials on the documents on them Then you you'll share names of the list on people who busted. They can be assured that those were people that we're we're looking to bring. Yeah so again. We call manifest ladder listed in list.

S. Iraq war from Baghdad frequently with me on the radio he was my guests this week on the Hugh Hewitt show how did you react to the news of the death Absalom money well I think there's no doubt that he's the most important of the three major lead is terrorist leaders have been hit by the United States I think he's done far more damage cumulatively then after nine eleven bin laden in hiding was not able to accomplish much Baghdad the mall but I think so the mommy has had multiple blood on their hands in the last ten years with either of those two now in terms of his his reach and his strategic objective how do you rank him as a terrorist leader in terms of of his strategic grasp of issues well I think there's no doubt that he he was extraordinarily successful but perhaps that success led him to to the complacency that put him on a road outside Baghdad airport the overnight looking at the map I realized the US military intelligence headquarters in Iraq laws are only a couple of hundred yards away from where those missiles struck the car in Baghdad International Airport is controlled in fact we always has been by the United States military so he obviously felt that he was untouchable in the town of great crisis to drive in a convoy to vehicles and exposed himself as he did humorous has killed a lot of people over the centuries John Fisher burns what do you think they're debating inside the Iranian regime number one so the money was the number two guy so when you have the number two guy remove you always wonder whether or not someone helped us who who's way was blocked by a slew of money but number two money is not young and he's never been well they're going to have a succession crisis on our hands now and I think there are some misconceptions which will be reinforced by the events today and Kim I'm with the thirty five people being trampled Seth stampede we see these photographs is images from Iran of millions of people taking to the streets there is a counterpoint to that which anybody uses Iran over the years knows which isn't going to any bizarre supermarket people approach you soon enough telling you how much they hate the ayatollahs and how they made yeah and for the United States to conniving ending the regime it's dangerous to engage with people like that because you never know when someone may be ponds but there there there so there is there is a counterpoint there are millions upon millions around the ends who would very much like to be free of the grip of the ayatollahs they of course in circumstances like this saw invisible and in a little is there a a possibility that the ring regime itself is in trouble up until the death of sure money they had had to murder one thousand of their own people in the streets over the last six weeks yeah I think it's a child is very fragile regime and the end of it is is is foretold the ayatollahs will eventually be toppled how will be diminished by domestic resistance but I think when the end comes in may come as quickly as the Shah's and came as you watch Iran furious we also see in Iraq moved divisions re opening do you think we're on the brink of the bad years of six oh seven again I think we're in a very complicated situation and I would like to have it explained to you what our objectives are the events of the last twenty four hours have you all could sense of apotheosis reminded me a little bit in this this to the to the Iraqi prime minister which appeared to to anticipate in America with tools we know now is much more limited than that it was a ritual is a withdrawal from the American embassy in the center of Baghdad but I had the feeling a little bit that we was it was Saigon nineteen seventy five all over again Americans being a capsule and helicopters you know I will use this for this come to in the end but the most at American troops can do in Iraq is to engage in protecting themselves into it would be a tragic and store has been very vexter in surprise ever since the invasion of two thousand three coming up I suspect that Donald Trump in one strike last week a lot more to change the calculation of the hell was that all the money that Barack Obama gave them I hastily concocted nuclear deal it could take years for which to recover John all review with you it returns in a moment stay with us best public leaders are wave makers able to combine smart policy ideas with a call to what makes America exceptional creating waves of popular support B.

S. troops in the Middle East because down from his deploy them to Saudi Arabia I had said to provide a sense of security for his partner their mom and Solomon now digital troops necessary to secure our embassy in Iraq so we seen him do things like pull back a few hundred US troops are having an enormous impact in Syria and ways that allowed for ISIS fighters to escape and potentially to regenerate that is certainly led to the killing of some of our current value Paul with us we seen him an ounce recently that they're gonna be re deployment of US troops in Africa were very small numbers of US troops are on the front lines trying to keep terrorists and insurgencies from developing he's pulling back troops where they're not many and they're needed and then he's pouring thousands of troops to deal with this threat from Iran that he is created by pulling on the Iran nuclear agreement because again he's responding to the impulse from Saudi Arabia or trying to print well let me get this straight there Sir so this guy roads okay Obama guy he's saying that Donald trumps it's different is the right way to describe the policy of the present it's it's America because Donald Trump like to stand up and say that he's getting us out of these places which by the way is is doing he pulls troops out which is saying Democrats RIP sense of doing but never could pull it off he's one of these these endless wars which isn't it everybody seems to agree with but then all the cities in church back when Americans are threatened and therefore he schizophrenic so you're in favor of the big guys the policy which is we've people with no assets and then would they get attacked you and die so you're on the record saying troops back and you want to say that Donald trump's foreign policy is schizophrenic because you were you were there when you had a policy which deliberately allowed for Americans to be murdered I mean I mean are you saying that you should not have additional troops be sent to secure embassy when it's under attack is that what you're not I mean it's what you're saying here you're you're so you're criticized the president for sending hundreds of US troops to protect the American embassy in our people there they're being brought in from out of the country by the way from Iran and being organized by Iran then you're saying with this presence foreign policy is schizophrenic he's not the only one using this talking point by the way the media is all in on this one not only did he say this I give you another Democrat Donna Edwards had this to say about Donald Trump also on MSNBC it's a good one you ready for this he says that the president I'd states America is quote clearly delusional so is schizophrenic and delusional because he protects American lives at the embassy got it okay so for new narrative that's why and that's what confused about the politics of well I would go further and say I don't know I mean the new year's eve and in this is clearly a delusional understanding of what's happening North Korea so I think I think it's more than a message problem it's for someone who doesn't really pay TV he goes through in our national security staff faster than spouses I mean what does he know about these hot spots here is a new year's eve he.

"Elizabeth Ries is all the dirt straight from Hollywood with dirt. All sorts of interesting stuff boy, Julian Assange, arrested at the embassy in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. And he is of course, the WikiLeaks guy. That's getting tons of attention to day after almost seven years in the embassy. It's sort of a funny thing, I find embassies actually think there should be a television show. You know, often on these alerts come up with ideas. I thank you. Reality show, well, not necessarily a reality show. But just there should be a show based on an embassy, and they should like create, you know, they should pick an embassy that then they create these storylines about and and then show I mean, it would just be so interesting to like have the storyline of who works in the embassy. What's going on in the embassy? What happens when someone like Julian Assange takes up residence in the embassy embassy is seems like a mythical place. Right. What happens? They just mentioned the embassy in the show. The most recent episode of billions that I was watching on Sunday where dania Lewis's character wanted to call in the FBI and his guys were like, you can't do anything. It's the embassy like it's their on deal. They're sovereign land. We'll say eighty one we drove by the American embassy our tour guide was like. Yeah. So see how there's like. A big open area in front of the American embassy, and there's like a concert stage, and there's a big platform, and there's like tons of seating. Well, they used to hold concerts there to be allowed and of noxious. So that the American people in the embassy like had to deal with the noise. Okay. That's really. Sense of humor. What I'm saying embassies are filled with really interesting stat could just be called the show could be called the NBC. I like it. So the US has charged Wiki leaks founder, Julian Assange of conspiring to hack computer as part of this twenty ten release of reams of secret American documents with the New York Times reporting. There was an indictment unsealed today. And he's been in seclusion in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for years now, I just wonder how Pamela Anderson is doing with this. She's upset. She is not happy. She has taken to writing poetry. Yeah. She's very upset about it. What you call? It actually probably more amateur words. She has written words he's flipped out. That's what page six s and she said, she's got. I just got your. No. It's pros words pretty good guys. When he believes filed for divorce from her husband, Kevin hunter. Okay, we go. She's divorcing her husband of nearly twenty two years. Her attorney confirm this to page six today. There have been lots of rumors that this was coming because her husband Kevin hunter allegedly fire had a baby with his mistress. The baby was born just a couple of weeks ago. Rumors of infidelity have plagued them for years. Although Wendy Williams hasn't confirmed them, but she is cryptically she told viewers after she returned to hurt from her two month hiatus that her wedding. Ring would always stand. Stay on her hand. She said, it ain't going anywhere. Not in this lifetime. Well, guess what brings off now now? Okay. So if I'm gonna read some tea leaves here because I think the the natural thing is to get really upset about like oh gosh. She's lying again. Yeah. But when I read the tea leaves on this. I think that there might be something to the fact that she said that publicly probably as like a way. Way of appeasing him she. I don't I it does not seem as though that has ever been a very healthy space for her and that part of getting out of that space. Yeah. May have been appeasing him until she had all exactly to get out. Well, an intern from her former radio show told the post that it was common for Kevin hunter to pull Wendy into a private room. And then staff would hear them fighting, and she would hide in the bathroom until the turn to knock on the door when he left the office. So she wouldn't have to see him. Yeah. I just. I wonder how I am too. And I wonder how this will start to lay out and unfold with that new information, I guess, I just I just find it fascinating. Her brand is to talk and yet she won't ever address her own stuff, which I'm not saying she has to. But isn't that so often true, right? It's so often true in so many realms of life. This is where we get deep on your dirt alerts. It's like. Passes the most judgment on. How other people are behaving are really they're passing so much judgment on other people because they are in such deep fear of people passing judgment on them. Because what they're doing. You know, it's like the stereotypical the person who just is. So homophobic, closeted gay, man. Right. I mean, this is like we see this kind of thing over and over again where it's just if you're so hell bent on holding other people to the fire. I generally find that there's something inside of you that you're afraid of people finding absolutely Muhammad easier is it for her to just about other people, and what they're doing girls gotta get it together. And blah, blah, blah, when she knows that she's the one who has to get together. It's almost like she's creating day like her own diversion by. Yeah. It's the only one that's diverting her because we're all like, hey over here. We see you guys win when famous people go to prison, they hang out together. I give you the case of Mike. Situation soaring Tino hanging out with disgraced fire festival creator. Billy McFarland apparently behind bars, they're a buddies. I mean, you know, who else are they going to hang out with right?

"But I want to take a little break from the phones for just a moment to send our thoughts and our prayers and our hopes out to the family of Paul Whalen, a forty eight year old man, he is director of global security for borgwarner, which is based here in Auburn Hills. He was in Russia to help out with a wedding. He knew his way around Rushide traveled there before and he was showing some folks some giving them a tour some Kremlin, museums when our old friend, Mr Putin and some of his cronies decided that maybe there was something else going on here. And they detained Mr. Whelan. It gets worse. It turns out they say that he. He is involved in spying and espionage that he's an enemy of the state. This is a marine who served multiple tours in Iraq, who's traveled around the world. Who knows his way around? This is a man he's a marine. Okay. Folks. This is a guy who knows what's dangerous. He knows what's safe, and he's not going to get himself involved in anything that might jeopardize him or his friends or guests. And he's now in the custody of the Russians were stretch still trying to find out more about this. If you've heard his brother and our broadcasts he has said that there's no way my brother's a spy, there's no way he would involved in anything like this. And apparently there is a seventy two hour blackout period. After which mister Whalen will be able to speak to American embassy officials in higher lawyer. Hopefully lawyer has got some tricks of this sleeve because I'm not sure the Justice system in Russia works the way the Justice system here does. So we want to send a our hopes out to Paul Whalen, and his family and hope that they will come through this ordeal unscathed and and quickly because this is a frightening situation. And we really have to acknowledge what this family's going through and serves as a poignant reminder that. Those guys over there in Russia. That different than they used to be. Maybe they're not. His buddy buddy as as we as we might like to think they are. But we're going to get back to your calls here on the Frank Beckmann show Joe in Lexington sock. It to me, my friend. Yeah. Hi, hey, I'm calling about. Only about this year with stuff with illegal aliens. Yes. So see these people they come up to the wall and all that and it'll cost less than. For legal monthly for them to live. I got some songs that are blind and they live in Detroit area, and they only get seven hundred ninety dollars a month to live up and yet they've got legals living, you them. We'll get better money and food stamps housing. Much later. Well, that sounds like a that sounds like a concern. I'd like to know what the circumstances are of everybody in that situation. I know and I see my jobs report. I see a lot of people who live on state assistance, and I will tell you folks, if you had to change places with them, you would not want to do it. This is not the lap of luxury. This is not living largest is not MTV cribs. This is not Robin Leach lifestyles of the rich and famous it is barely a living. But joy, I'm concerned that your friends are not getting better benefits and that they're having to live in such such desperate conditions. So hopefully, something will change there. And hopefully, their situation is temporary. And that they're about to get a little better benefits a little bit of quality of life. Joe? Thank you for your call, Gary and Hazel park. What's going on my man? Hey, brother. Good. Good morning. I'm not supposed to say that stuff. Hey, look the guy that brought up there. Logic seawall Germany's attempt to stop the invasion. He's way out of line because we had to throw a million five hundred ships five thousand planes and fifteen countries at that seawall to break it down. So if there if the Mexicans Guatemalans are gonna do that they'll take out a wall also, but we'll stop them because we have the might. And you said a couple of things that are old cliches at such as were nation of immigrants and their here for hardworking men and women because those dynamics have changed everything is different now than it was when those were valid arguments. Well, I I gotta tell you Gary things definitely have changed. But I don't remember the Irish and the Italians being greeted with open arms. I think they were people back in the twenties saying, no Irish need apply. Remember that? I don't think that are a talion brothers and sisters were on anybody's most welcome list. I think the only thing that's changed is the people that were not welcoming are different. But this country hasn't always welcomed immigrants with open arms. But this country was built by immigrants starting all the way back to Christopher Columbus. Remember that Spanish fella who had the problem with his compass who ended up here thought he was in India. Those are all cliches, they're not true. These people are coming over here. And sucking off our system the Irish did not the there was no welfare system when the Irish will come over. Sure they were mistreated. Everybody knows that. But this is different dichotomy. You have to accept the fact that we need to secure our border and stop this invasion, and you've been told thirty times today and still you reject it, Gary that was thirty one times. Thank you master. I will do as I'm told we're gonna take a quick break while I lick message and data rates may apply..
