Caller: Antony Blinken Needs to Be Impeached
"I'll tell you about that Anthony blinken and the liars every one of them. Do you remember when Anthony blinken was sitting across the table from the Chinese and they were talking, you know, when he first came on and they tore into him about how terrible our country is and everything and Anthony blinken accepted everything they said, yes, our country has problems. Didn't bring up one thing about the Uyghurs, nothing. He's a spineless jellyfish, and he's worthless, and he does need to be impeached and thrown out a secretary. Karen, I don't remember that exact instance with Anthony blinken, though what I do know is that Xi Jinping has been meeting with leaders from all around the world and talking about how he wants to combat global the global hegemony of the United States. He's met with Viktor Orban in Hungary, Gustavo, Petra and Columbia. He recently met with Emmanuel Macron in France and all of those meetings. He has talked about combating the United States, and we have yet to hear any denunciation from President Biden really we have had a meek and weak response on the part of our rulers, so although I'm not aware of that exact incident, it's certainly does not shock me
The Shocking Truth on the Hunter Biden Laptop Censorship
"This overreach is nonstop. This think about what has happened in the last few years. I want to just start with the Hunter Biden laptop that you couldn't talk about. It was like the one thing that could not be said, don't forget what happened in the New York Post. Their Twitter account got shut down because they reported on the Hunter Biden laptop. And then you had this big letter with all the former CIA guys all the deep state professionals saying this was Russian disinformation that the Hunter Biden laptop was all made up. Do you believe me? And they had the cover that, oh, it's that crazy Rudy Giuliani that's bringing this thing forward. This is all Russian disinformation, so you better shut it down. You better shut it down fast. And that's exactly what all the social media companies did. Look, I ran into it right on Facebook. I personally suppressed for one whole year. And they came around and told me that they were suppressing me because we had a story about the laptop, and that was quote unquote, fake news, and a whole host of other things that they labeled it. So that landed me in jail, had never been in jail before like that. For a whole year. It's over. We are screwed. This is what they did. So that story, which turns out to be true, was completely shut down while simultaneously the same cast of characters, morale, Brandon, and blinken. I gotta get to him in a minute. The same cast of characters were the ones that were saying that the Russian dossier was true. They wanted us to believe the Russians had planted Donald Trump there because they had the goods on them. The Russians? How mixed up is this? And it gets even scarier. It gets even scarier because when you find out who was behind, this letter that was the game changer, really, because you couldn't tell the truth during the whole election season, the game changer really came from none other than Antony Blinken. Antony Blinken, our current Secretary of State, ladies and gentlemen, that did a horrendous job getting us out of Afghanistan that continues to do a horrendous job in terms of negotiating the relationship with Taiwan and China. And let's be honest, clearly failed in any kind of diplomatic effort to prevent war between Ukraine and Russia.
Blinken Orchestrated Intel Letter to Discredit Hunter Laptop Story
"Going to get to the breaking news surrounding our Secretary of State Antony Blinken and there are growing calls for the Secretary of State to resign. And quite frankly, be charged with election interference because apparently the former or the current Secretary of State was involved in that effort to go after Donald Trump with a fake letter that 50 former CIA and intelligence officers, all that kind of nonsense, suggesting that Hunter Biden's laptop was fake, it was not real. It turned out to be a lie. And honestly, that actually caused, again, taking the stop the steel movement out of the equation, a lot of people say that caused them not to vote for Donald Trump. So election interference charges is what we're talking about, but I want to
G-7 talks may measure allies' reaction to US documents leak
"The top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee says the military needs to do a better job of securing confidential information in the wake of sensitive documents being leaked out by a 21 year old air national guardsman. The system failed. Republican senator Lindsey Graham, who's in the Middle East, tells ABC's this week with George Stephanopoulos. He's hearing foreign dignitaries complain about the release of damaging and embarrassing information. I can promise you it's been very damaging. There's information about Mossad supposedly helping the protesters. There's information about the air defense capability of Ukraine and everybody in the regions really worried. He says, why would anyone share secrets with the U.S. if a low level military member can leak it out? This weekend, Secretary of State Antony Blinken tried to downplay the fallout. It's not affected. Our cooperation. I just haven't seen that. He's attending the group of 7 foreign ministers meeting in Japan, the first major diplomatic conference since those sensitive documents were posted online.

US, Vietnam pledge to boost ties as Blinken visits Hanoi

Speaking at a news conference, blinken said, after 28 years of normalising relations, our nation's affords a relationship that is robust, dynamic, and consequential.

U.S. officials arranging to visit American journalist held in Russia
"U.S. consular officials are hoping to soon visit a Wall Street Journal reporter who is being detained in Russia. A Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman said Wednesday that the request for American officials to visit reporter Evan gershkovich is being considered but she gave no indication of when a decision would be made. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that once the U.S. formerly designates gershkovich as wrongly being detained, the State Department can then start negotiating for his release. In my own mind, there's no doubt that he's being wrongfully detained. By Russia, which is exactly what I said to foreign minister Lavrov when I spoke to him. Over the weekend. Gershkovich, who Russia accuses of being a spy was arrested last week. Donna water Washington

Which is that words have meaning? And that's apparently why, of course, you can't call a biological man that feels like a woman, a he, and that's why you can't say pregnant women. You have to say pregnant people because you're going to upset someone because these words matter, well, okay, if words matter, then can someone get the message to zelensky and blinken and Joe Biden right now and just tell them to stop talking and to cool it?
