Rashida Tlaib Endorses Prison Abolition Bill to 'Empty Federal Jails'

"Will Rashida Tlaib? It was a very questionable individual. She believes we need to end federal prisons and open up all the jails and the criminals. This is now a stated policy position of the Democrat party. Now you might say, how could anyone possibly believe this? Will you see if you do not believe? That people are naturally inclined towards doing evil? Then you have to explain it away. And Rashida Tlaib believes that prisons are the reason why people do bad things. Again, you must go to college to believe such things as play cut 20. Yeah, again, I think that everyone's like, oh my God, we just release everybody. This one's. But did you see how many people are mentally ill that are in prison right now? No, I know, but the act that you don't actually release everyone, human traffic is. Oh, I know. Child sex that are mentally ill that have substance abuse problems. Why are you asking me about them? You're asking me about the traffickers trying to understand your proposal is sort of sweeping. It does release everyone. What? So sometimes I watch these clips beforehand. Sometimes I don't. Good for Jonathan Swan. I'm gonna text him after this. He's from axios. Tlaib, that's stupid? No, she's actually a I could see it immediately. I'm like, okay, now I know what I'm dealing with. And yeah, I'm just kind of a loss for words. What I was just watching there. She was admitting, like, of course, oh, I know. I'm gonna open up all the prisons, of course, obviously. The sex traffickers the murders, the arsonists, hey, you know what we need?

"Did you see the conversation between that screwball, Rashida Tlaib? And what's the guy from axios? Oh, you got to hear this. She endorses a program that would literally free all prisoners from federal prisons. And when she's cornered on it, she babbles like an idiot and starts to giggle and smile remember this is the class act that screeched. We're gonna impeach the MF the night she was elected. And I remember thinking that's a member of Congress, this lunatic, these morons voted for Well, wait till you hear what she says is a good progressive for you. This is what must be defeated in November of 2022, or we're going to lose this country. If we have nut cases like Rashida Tlaib in the halls of power, we are in huge trouble.

Ron DeSantis Says He Will Send Migrants to Delaware if They Are Flown Into Florida on Secret Flights

"Ron DeSantis is despised by the left. Every time I see Ron DeSantis say something, I start thinking about him more and more as a presidential candidate. And I don't know what president Trump is going to decide to do. I know that Chris Christie, who we interviewed last week on the show, sat down with axios and he seems willing to take on Donald Trump. In 2024, I don't know how that will work out for governor Christie. President Trump reacted pointing out that Chris Christie left office with like a 19% approval rating as New Jersey governor. But Chris Christie's a fighter, you know? And there's a lot of things that we don't know what's going to happen how this is going to unfold, but I like Ron DeSantis on the national stage. Listen to what he said about the news that Biden was flying illegals into Florida. This is governor desantis. This is why so many people like this guy's message. You know, my view would be, why don't we if they're going to come here? We'll provide buses and provide them. I will send them to Delaware and do that. I mean, if he's not going to support the border being secured, then he should be able to have everyone there. So we will do whatever we can in that regard. And we are absolutely going to do everything we can. That's a good idea, governor desantis, if Biden is flying illegals into Florida in the middle of the night, on these planes full of ship them back to Delaware. Let them go to Wilmington. Let them camp out at Joe Biden's

GOP Election Success Deals Blow to Democrats

"Let me do the rundown because I'm still in a great mood. Jenkins, Virginia win offers midterm road map for GOP warning for Democrats, opines, the headline of The Wall Street Journal this morning. Voters punish Democrats and lift amid left drip according to axios. A couple of great quotes in the story this morning. Clearly, the president's drop in favorability made it very difficult for the democratic nominee to stay above water. Democratic Jerry Conley told axios D.C. in my colleague selection night event in Tyson's quarter, Virginia. That's what happened. A senior aide to New Jersey Democrat told axios alania Trini, quote, it's insanely clear. The party must reorient not on center left or progressive goals, but on what gets real things done for family. You would think so. How bad was it? The New York Times has a headline story about a little tiny district in San Antonio. John luhan a 59 year old retired firefighter won the seat a blow for Democrats because Joe Biden carried it by double digit points, only a year ago. My favorite headline in the morning in The New York Times from Jeremy Peters and elisa Lerner Republicans pounce on schools as a wedge issued to unite the party as I put online. Headlines are not the fault of Jeremy. He's a fine reporter. I don't know Lisa. Headlines are driven to get quicks. Republicans haven't pounced on anything Republicans have been talking about schools in red and purple states for decades. Virginia is a blue state. And so the education issue is erupted in Virginia, proving that blue states can be turned red when parents see the indoctrination of their children going on. New York Democrats assess losses to Republicans, according to The New York Times, quote, this was a shellacking. Up and down the Empire State Republicans won election at the local level. Reeling from surprise losses, Democrats sound the alarm for 2022 according to Jonathan Martin and Alexander burns the two Bigfoot republic the democratic reporters reporters on Democrats.

"axios" Discussed on Axios Today

"About a quarter of americans described themselves as evangelical protestants according to the pew research center but lately a movement of so-called xfinity uncles is moving away from the evangelical church in the us. That's according to axios steph. Kite she's here with more now. Hey staff hey erica so steph. How big is this exodus from the evangelical church you. It's really hard to measure. What we do know is that there are some social media accounts that have tens of thousands of followers and these social media accounts are directed at expand yokels or deconstructed evangelical. 's what do you mean by this term. Deconstructed deconstruction is kind of a buzzword. That's been used within these circles and it honestly has a range of meanings for some people. It means that they've just stepped back from a certain kind of christian church or culture or politics While for others. It means that they've left. Organized religion altogether so what is accounting for this rise of exchange locals there couple of different things that happened over the past few years that have led to people leaving church and also being more outspoken about it. Donald trump's presidency was one really big issue that a lot of people. I spoke to brought up that because we saw so many white evangelical attach themselves donald trump for some people who didn't agree with his policies and didn't agree with his rhetoric. It became a flash point in a reason for them to move away and started highlighting issues. That maybe they've always had with the church but seeing people react to his presidency made them step away at the end. And how does social media factoring here. It's not new people to change what they believe or change. What kind of church they want to go to. But what's different this time. Around is that social media has actually allowed people to form communities to kind of support each other even hashtags like exxon jellicoe or deconstruction or church to head allowed people to share their stories and also find other people who had similar reasons for leaving who had also had stories of abuse within the church or who felt like they didn't belong in the church because their sexual identity or other issues. So it's created more of a movement where before it might have been just a one off person leaving and nothing really said about it so just give me your big takeaway here. Why does this matter. Imagine matters because evangelism is still very popular in the us. and it's also a group that's targeted politically. i think. Sometimes it's easy to look at evangelicals and only think of the republican party but there are nuances and we're starting to see That communities start to break apart in different ways. It'll be interesting to wash moving forward.

Republican Governors Infuriated by Biden's Vaccine Mandates

"The new vaccine mandates that president biden announced last week will affect about one hundred million americans all told and while it seems that many americans agree with the president. There's also been a significant backlash with some gop. Governors vowing legal action and other top republicans calling for a public uprising. Margaret talev is managing editor for politics. At axios hi margaret hi. How striking is this reaction. We've seen especially over the past few days from republicans. The republican governors in states like florida and states like texas. They're responding to the gop base that is strikingly on the side of the the freedom not to be vaccinated the freedom to work in a place where your boss can't tell you what to do and it is that question. Mark about the most vulnerable districts for democrats that is really driving this push by republican politicians to jump all over joe biden for these mandates. The argument is that it is an issue of personal freedom or of medical choice. Of course americans who aren't comfortable with taking a shot have the right to speak out against it and have the right to resist. The question is what's the breaking point between free speech. You know civil disobedience and a threat to the nation a threat to national security violation of the law right and former president bush compared those threats to national security that you're talking about with the terrorism that took place on nine eleven at an anniversary ceremony and shanksville pennsylvania on saturday little culture overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's disdainful pours in their disregard for human life and their determination to defile national symbols.

We of course the twentieth anniversary of nine eleven will be hearing about that. A weakened in saturday president biden the first lady travelling to all three of the sites for that day like a very emotional trip and moment and this is what i mean about so many tracks early in the week. President biden is going to be in queens and new jersey. Today after ida and norlin still doesn't have electricity. It's more than leaders have dealt with ever and i have not said one word nyla. What's that word afghanistan. Make so much of what we've talked about. It seems like with the biden presidency is what president biden has on his agenda versus what keeps happening in the world. How much of. How much are we going to see that interplay this week in particular now president biden. Who had been on a roll. Things have been going pretty well for him. His agenda had been on-track. The economy jobs were on track co vaccinations or on-track. Now all those individually are at risk. And now you have the backdrop of a massive international crisis with questions about how his administration handled it. These of course are all interlinked. They all depend on his attention. His competence his popularity his muscle. And that's the drama for this fall. What's the bottom line here. Then the bottom line president biden has more at risk at home and abroad than ever americans are watching just as we head into the midterms of twenty twenty two republicans out.

She read a poem as part of her application. It was this video application. She talked about her belief in djeddai space which stands for a just equitable diverse and inclusive. Space she actually tried to become a nasa astronaut at one point and made it to sort of the finals and wasn't selected so this has been a longtime dream for her so for people who are listening to this thinking. Why should i care about a billionaire going to space. What would you say to them. I think that the reason that inspiration for a really really caught me was it's not just a sub orbital flight. These people are going to spend three days in orbit. They're trying to raise hundred million dollars for saint jude. On top of the hundred million that that jared isaac minutes donating as well and you have a really. Interestingly diverse group of people that are getting to go mariam. I am the generation of florida kids. Who grew up watching space launches and was in elementary school when the challenger disaster happened. What are the stakes here. When you have people who were going into space who aren't professional astronauts. Yeah i mean christa. Mcauliffe was going to be the first teacher in space and she. She died tragically in the challenger explosion. A lot of the rhetoric around christa mcauliffe was. This is an opening of space to ordinary people. Just like it is with inspiration for if this succeeds it will be written. As as a huge accomplishment for spacex for private spaceflight for people who want to go to space if it fails it could completely halt the industry in ways that i don't think anyone is really prepared for barron kramer is a space reporter for axios m the host of season.

He says the images. He seeing of afghanistan trigger his own memories of leaving saigon valdez spoke with telemundo. Not for axios latino. And i'm here with axios russell contrast us now to chat about this interview harris. Great to be with you so russ what did val does say about his final moments in saigon as vietnamese forces were taking the city. One describes a chaotic scene. Where people were trying to get into the embassy to leave with us forces at the time. The north vietnamese were coming into saigon. The country was falling apart. After years of war. The us forces like they are in afghanistan. Were racing to get out. He was heart of the last crew of marines to escape the embassy and he describes this chaotic scene. Where people were trying to pass their children to him when he saved here is it would give us the children saying. Please take my children out. I'll stay if i have to. But take my daughter away. Now what is he saying about this withdrawal from afghanistan. Well he's seeing images on television like the rest of us seen them online and these are triggered nightmares for him because these are things that stayed with him he was largely forgotten until a few years ago when people were rediscovering his story so he questions not only the mission of vietnam but also afghanistan in. Here's what he said to telemundo noticias in spanish. The some authencity nedal does what he's saying here is done through. Spent so much money so many weapons so many infantry and army for what he's right they're reliving the fall of saigon through the eyes of afghanistan and i've got to tell you we forgot him and what he did at the in the vietnam war there is another one valdez there in afghanistan. The question we have to ask ourselves. Will we forget him. Like we forgot one. Well is also just one of many latinos in the military. Can you tell us about the rule of latinos in the war in afghanistan by estimates about eight point. Five percent of those servicemen and women who died in afghanistan. We're latino and we're just now learning about the sacrifices. There's one case of a army nurse jenny. Modano the bomb detonated and a fellow serviceman was injured. She was ordered not to move because maybe they were a possible other explosives around her but she saw this injured servicemen and ran toward him. Unfortunately a bomb went off and killed her. There are a lot of jennifer what ails we. Just don't know their stories yet. Also contrary us as axios race and justice reporter. He co writes the axios latino newsletter. Thanks thanks for having me. We've taken you through some heavy political stories on today's show. But here's a different sort of trend that i'm watching. Women are joining the us gig economy at a rapid clip. They used to make up around. Thirty percent of the gig workforce in may of two thousand seventeen. And that's since come up to around forty six percent. A lot of that growth has been driven by the rise of women in food delivery app. Jobs like door dash or uber eats. This actually shows a pretty interesting and telling trend in the labor market. Which is that a lot of women have no other option right now. Many of them have lost their jobs because there over represented in hospitality or food service. Or they've left their jobs at a much higher rate than men for reasons like childcare and gig. Work is really the only way to keep some of that flexibility to juggle responsibilities at home as well as make an income on the side. One mom in chicago. Danielle hayden told me she even takes her kids along her door. Dash routes some sometime so she can care for her children and work at the same time and one reason food delivery app jobs are so popular among women rather than rideshare for say uber or lift is because a lot of women say they feel more comfortable delivering someone's food than having strangers in their car so as the food delivery economy keeps growing with the pandemic forming habits and having everyone increasingly likely to order at home and stay home. Expect the rise of women in the economy to keep growing as well. That's all for this week. Axios today is brought to you. By axios pushkin industries were produced by alexandra boaty nuria marquez.

Robotics team talks to us for mexico city about what's next but i the white house cybersecurity call to action is today's one big thing in the middle of messy evacuations from afghanistan and just before meeting with the israeli prime minister president biden held a cybersecurity summit with tech and business leaders at the white house yesterday. One of the leaders there was arvin. Criminal that the chairman and chief executive officer of ibm. And i'm with arvin now at. Ibm headquarters in washington social distance. Of course arvin. Thanks for taking the time president to be hit with you. Did you have a chance to speak personally with the president at the summit and in the middle of everything that's going on why is cybersecurity so important that there had to be a summit about it now. His time with auto fos wasn't a group setting where there were about. I think thirty odia faucet in the room all told including half a dozen cabinet members that the fact that they could convene twenty-five odd ceos across different industries and at least imply that there will be more coordination and more of a holistic effort across both government and private industry. I think is energizing. I've heard from you. And from other see there are thousands or maybe tens of thousands of unfilled jobs in this area and no capacity to fill them. I wish it was only tens of thousands. There are half a million unfulfilled jobs in cyber. So that's a question of supply side the supplies and there it creates two issues one. The job is unfulfilled and the second it drives wages way are building reasonable so the issue is not so much a larger companies where we might be able to reach up but then small and medium businesses find it really hard to be able to pay those wages for anyone so we've got to work on the on the supply. We have to work on training people on. Maybe people. reentering the workforce maybe people mid-career for these jobs. Not just people in high school and in college. Do you see it as a business threat or is it. A national security threat is at both. I think it's the issue of this decade. When i say that a little bit tongue-in-cheek sutton's law after the bankrobber. Why did he banks. Because that's where the money is. Why are criminal. The nation states coming off to save it infrastructure. That's the value is today. If you shut down the cyber infrastructure no payments will happen. Let's try living without payments. Shut down a pipeline. You don't get on the east coast really you can live without fuel. How do you drive. And how do you go places if you shut down water. How long have you can human being live without water. Today's you're saying we have no idea. We know what could happen. But we've never really experienced it on the kind of scale that we could. We have an inexperienced point one percent of what could happen. And so that's the real. It's both the threat and the opportunity. The threat is it could be a thousand times worse. The opportunity is we have a bit of time to get it. Corrected and to begin to put safeguards in place before. It.

"Welcome back to axios today. I'm margaret talev. Infor nyla boudou. Earlier this month. United airlines became the first and remains the only major airline to require cova vaccination for all of its workers. Accesses join muller spoke this week with united ceo. Scott kirby who believes that now we could see other major air companies. Start to follow suit. Hi joanne i'm margaret. John tells what convinced kirby to go ahead and move on this ahead of the rest of his industry. He's been seeing a lot of his employees die. He said they've already had dozens. Die and each one. He sends a letter to the family. And he's just tired of writing letters to the families. He says one hundred percent of the people who died were unvaccinated. When we talked to this week he told me that just the day before an employee had died and he was only fifty three and he said he spent eight days in the emergency room in houston waiting for a spot. In the icu. That never came and he just said it's tragic and it's so unnecessary. I know that are also trying to figure out just like politicians are trying to figure out. How do you address vaccine hesitancy in the worker. So that you're not forcing someone to do something they don't wanna do. How are they trying to tackle that problem. Well they are hosting some information sessions both virtually and in the airports where these employees are. And you know. I asked him if he was worried about losing employees to other companies because it just didn't wanna get vaccinated and he said yeah. I remain worried about that but for me it was much simpler. It was about saving people's lives. Does the united see you believe that other airlines will follow particularly now that the fda has given its approval of pfizer. He does believe that. Now you know and a lot of other institutions are mandating vaccines eventually. It gets the point where the outliers the one who doesn't do it join muller's axios transportation correspondent thanks joanne. Thanks margaret only fans a content subscription platform known for adult photos and videos announced last week it will be bending sexually explicit content access. Dan primack reported the company was projected to bring in over two billion dollars in net revenue in twenty twenty two and sex workers who created content. On the site are describing. The decision as earth shattering axios as business editor. Dan primack joins us now. Dan dan you've said this would be like if i hop said there were only going to serve lunch and dinner. It's kind of like if instagram said. You can't post vacation pictures anymore. Why is banning sexually explicit content. The explanation that only fans gives is that this is a request from its banking and payment processing partners although it hasn't gotten any more granular than that. It appears perhaps impart that this is based on some changes that mastercard decided to make a related to porn hub from last year. Although it does seem that only fans could get around this. It just added some new tech. That's back in basically to make sure that people who are underage or nonconsensual information wasn't up there. Do we know how much of only fans business the sexually explicit part is. We don't know for sure what i can tell you. Though from talking to the sex workers on their they say it is the explicit stuff that sells is it true that some people actually got their mortgages based on the promise that they were going to be uploading in monetize ing videos. Absolutely we'll think about it this way. Only fans in an investor pitch deck that axios scott said that over sixteen thousand models on its site. We're making fifty thousand dollars or more year via only fans and if we assume that a majority of that is explicit content. That's a lot of money. These are people who have actual livelihood that are based on this platform. There is an argument that you have more control over your own livelihood or your own safety or content if you are in charge of distributing a monetize the video right you do. I talked about this with a woman named alana evans. Who's a veteran porn star. She's she's got only fans page. What she said to me was the value of only fans to adult performers. Was that it. Was everything in one place said you know. She used to have to deal with her own website or own webmaster on payment processors etc. And she said she felt that often her and her peers. We're getting exploited by these people. Should only fans was kind of an all in one platform. It was just a lot easier but one of the concerns among people who kind of advocate for sex workers here if it some of them if they d platform from only fans will go to in-person sex work if you look at it only fans numbers one of the reasons for why it exploded. Last year was the pandemic so many people were at home and for sex workers who had been doing kind of in-person full-service services. A lot of them ended up on only fans and there are concerns that some of them may view that as the only thing they can do to.

"Good morning. welcome to axios today. It's tuesday august twenty fourth. I'm margaret talev. In for nyla voodoo. Here's what we're watching today. Dire conditions in qatar for evacuees from afghanistan plus fda approval of the pfizer vaccine raises questions about young kids. But first today's one big thing. What that fda approval means for vaccination rates in a hard hit state the fda yesterday granted full approval to the pfizer. Biotech cova vaccine will convince more people to get vaccinated though the answer to that question will be especially important in states with low vaccination rates and surging hospitalizations like alabama that state is currently one of the hardest hit by covert in the nation. Dr scott harris the state health officer for the department of public health in alabama dr harris. Good morning good morning. We last spoke with you in december just before. The public really started getting the vaccine. And it's been eight months now. What's the current situation in hospitals. In alabama alabama's really encountered a difficult time particularly over the last three to four weeks. We've seen our hospital numbers. Increase it a really rapid rate. We're not quite at the peak that we establish back in january in terms of total covert hospitalizations. But we've especially had problems with our icu. Capacity we have many many more people dating critical care than we have. Beds the stats twenty. Five hundred. eighty eight cova cases in the last day or so thirty eight of those pediatric cases. Yeah we really have seen an increase in pediatric cases that we have not identified before total pediatric hospitalizations. Make up between one and two percent of all hospitalizations but that's a lot for kids. Kids don't usually end up in the hospital at that rate with most illnesses. So big news now full fdi authorization for the pfizer vaccine about a little more than a third of the folks in alabama or fully vaccinated. That's a huge rate of unvaccinated. People could that full fda authorization help actually increase the vaccination rates in your state. It is a very big deal. It certainly help with some people's concerns. A lot of people have used that as maybe an excuse to not get vaccinated. Now they don't have that excuse. I hope they don't find a new case. We definitely have a you know. A lot of vaccine hesitancy in there a lot of different reasons for that but i do believe we've got some people who were still just on the fence that so movable middle they were hoping to get to now dr welby last spoke back in december. We had talked about the concerns of black americans black residents of alabama around the vaccine the historical reasons for that tied to systemic racism experimentation tuskegee. But it turned out that the vaccine hesitancy didn't just impact black americans right. No that's exactly right. We actually anticipated what we thought. We might see in our african american community. We had a really good plan for that. We worked well. In that and in fact some of our predominantly african american counties are the most vaccinated counties in our state where vaccinating black alabamians at a rate a little higher than white alabamians. It's rural white communities where we really encountered a lot of resistance. Donald trump in south was actually booed at a rally in alabama. Right within the last few days for recommending the vaccine. Are there any lessons that you have learned from the outreach. With people who were vaccine hesitant. What have you learned about the approach in how it needs to change. you know. i don't think he would be surprised to hear me say that you know we kind of naively thought if we just relent. The science and people will be compelled to accept a up because everybody believes in science but but in fact we have people. That just aren't really interested in hearing a message from state government in general or public health in particular we really Have found that they wanna listen to people that they trust and so. That's really been the crux of what we've been trying to do with our communications campaign. We want people to talk to their doctor. Their own healthcare provider people in their communities that that they believe provide them a good information. And and you know it's hard to do that it. It's sort of one conversation at a time. It's really labor intensive. It's thanks a lot of work to do that. And you know sometimes it works sometimes. It doesn't work.

How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1

"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

"Welcome to axios today. It's friday july thirties. I'm hope king axios business reporter filling in for nile at boudou. Here's what we're covering today. How climate fares in the infrastructure deal plus us gdp growth falls short of expectations. But first today's one big thing. What gymnast sunni lease gold means to the mum community in america. Yesterday in tokyo gymnast sunnis salih became the sixth. Us woman to win an olympic. All around gold. She's the first among american to not only win but to compete at the olympics. As she competed her family washed alongside the rest of the mum community. In saint paul. She- abang anchor at care. Levin in minneapolis was there with the family and she joins us now. Good morning. good morning hope. Thanks for having me. We're really happy to have you. You have been with the lee family. You've been watching them. Watch her compete from the other side of the world. What's it been like to be in that room. Pretty special i among myself so this hits a lot of different ways for me but it has been joyful to see among american on the world stage in that way the moments leading up to it was tense. Mom had her hand over her face. She was holding other people's hands the moment that they announced that suny got the gold. It was just a moment of relief and celebration and history really for the community and then for everyone else who's been supporting suny through this journey. Trajectory has been one filled with some painful moments in her life. Wondering if you can share with us any of those personal moments that you saw especially from her father. Yeah so. John lee when he talks about her. I feel like there's like almost like a sparkle because she is so special one thing also i think people should know about sunni niece's family. Is there not a wealthy family. They couldn't afford for uniforms and so they started. Doing annual fundraisers and those fundraisers are really for people that john new has cousins is brothers relatives and then any friends that they told and what i think that speaks to the communal nature of the mon- community and i think that's why the gold medal win was so so huge for her and the rest of the community watching the monk community is often not represented when it comes to asian american stories. Can you say a little bit more about the significance of that. Just within the asian american community. Yeah i think that suny has talked a little bit about it. She's eighteen years old and she said in different interviews. You know people just don't like us. And i don't know why and you know. I think it speaks to us being the other when it comes to asian americans we look like them so they kind of just group us in there. But there's nuances within the asian umbrella that don't talk about the poverty levels disparities that have to do with some of the ethnicities in the asian umbrella. Sunni has talked about. I want to show people who we are. And i think this has shown a lot of people who we are as a people and how we got here. We've only been here as john. Her dad would say forty. Plus years and in his lifetime never thought he would see among olympian but yet it is his daughter. So we're just all really proud. Giovanni is an anchor for care levin in minneapolis. Jia thanks for being here..

"Patriotism gets test. The olympics plus the delta variant grips capitol hill. But i getting drug companies to pay for the growing overdose. Crisis is today's one big thing while the coveted pandemic has raged in the us. Another public health crisis never stopped and in fact is still growing drug overdose. Deaths hit a record of ninety three thousand in the us. In twenty twenty and opioids particularly the synthetic. Feno are a major factor. Now this week we saw some more movement in that fight by states to get drug companies to pay for their role in this devastating epidemic. Bob herman axios healthcare business. Reporter has some updates for us. Good morning bob. Hi margaret so bob. Tell us about this. Twenty six billion dollar national opioid settlement which companies are part of it. What are the details that we need to know yes. Fourteen states led the negotiations for this particular agreement. And they're basically asking other state attorneys general out there to join so there's four main companies involved the three big drug distributors mayor source bergen cardinal health and mckesson and then a pharmaceutical company johnson and johnson. The amount of money varies by company. And all of the money's being paid out over a long period of time so twenty six billion dollars. It sounds like a lot of money and it is but these are also very large companies if you look at the settlement in terms of what the revenue looks like The twenty six billion dollars is just four percent of their combined. Annual revenue in a lot of these companies have already set aside these funds in anticipation of a settlement. If this does go ahead though. Bob would victims families get any of the money. Or how would the money be used. It's a good question. It's kind of reminds me of the big tobacco. Settlement from years ago where states and local municipalities really will become in charge of distributing funds. The states did say that a majority of the money would be used for opioid treatment and prevention. That could mean a lot of things but the hope is it would help families who've been most hurt by this but in terms of who's gonna get money and who's gonna get treatment that were just so far from determining how that money will be used without. What should we be watching for. There's many other settlements in negotiations in bankruptcy proceedings going on that everyone should be aware of most notably as purdue pharma the maker of oxycontin. They're so going through bankruptcy filings and then there's many other court cases involving other opioids manufacturers and pharmacies and then even native american tribes are pursuing separately. Legal action from all of this is the start. Toward some kind of national opioids. But we're still pretty far off from anything being definitive bob. Herman is access healthcare. Business reporter joining us from north west indiana. Thanks bob thanks martin. We'll be back in fifteen seconds with new polling on national pride at the olympics. The federal minimum wage has been stuck at seven dollars and twenty five cents an hour. That's why amazon.

"Us today. I'm nylon boudou. We talked on the podcast about the digital. Divide that the pandemic has deepened here in the us and how many americans don't have reliable access to the internet especially young people who need it for school. The issue has become a bipartisan priority. And now a number of key. Republicans in washington are warming up to the taxing big tech companies to help fund the expansion of broadband in rural areas. Margaret harding mcgill is a tech reporter for axios in washington and has been tracking this. Good morning margaret. Good morning. and thank you for having me. Barbara idea taxing tech companies. How would that work well right now. Americans pay a fee on their phone. Bill that goes into this fund called the universal service fund. Used to be used to help. Make sure that americans had access to phone service but more and more it's being used to ensure access to broadband but the problem is that fee has been as the revenue base decreases because fewer and fewer people are using the phone. There's this idea from the fcc commissioner brenan car who says well the companies that really rely on the internet and benefit from it these big internet companies. They should be the ones paid into this fund. Now so would that be like for example like how much they have pay sure so the idea would be that companies that benefit from using internet networks would have to pay into the fund so apple would pave through. Its use of the app store. Amazon might have to pay for video streaming facebook and google. Because of the money they make through online advertising. It's really unclear how much this would be. But the current universal service fund is a nine billion dollar fund and the biden administration is contemplating sixty five billion for broadband to connect all americans. So there's a huge range there as well margaret. It's rare for republicans to support taxes on corporations. Does this new bipartisan. Effort mean this is something that could actually happen. Well i thought it was very interesting to see the number of republicans who got on board with this so quickly minority leader. Kevin mccarthy has said any conversation about building out broadband should include a big tech user fee. And i think it's partially because it's kind of popular to beat up on big tech right now. They're an easy target. Now on the bipartisan front. It's unclear how many democrats in congress would support this. If it's a bipartisan bill. I think that this could go somewhere. Because it's a problem that does need to be solved. Margaret harding mcgill covers tech policy for us in washington. Thanks.

It's not just gonna be harder for a urban black democrat vote. It's going to be harder for rural. White republicans vote. This is really a war on american voters. What would you say to people. Who don't see this as a war on american voters. Let's take voter fraud. I wonder how you bridge the gap between americans who say they're worried about voter fraud then on the other.

"Axios political reporter. Jonathan swan recently sat down with pakistan's prime minister imran khan for the latest episode of axios on hbo and their conversation race questions about the future of counterterrorism in the region. Jonathan swan is with me. Now jonathan you ask. Prime minister con- whether pakistan would allow the cia to use bases on its soil for cross-border counterterrorism missions after the us pulls out of afghanistan. And here's what he said absolutely not. There's no way we're going to any business. Any sort of action from pakistani data entry into venison. Absolutely no jonathan. We heard you reacting there. You're surprised at his answer. Well i was surprised. He was unequivocal. He he's in a tough position that line absolutely not was the top trending line on pakistani. Social media was the front page of their main english language newspaper. So that's what the pakistani people want to hear. They wanna hear a leader. Say no to america and push america out. The reality is much more complicated. Pakistan is a country that is really controlled to a large extent by the military and their intelligence services and the decisions around national security have historically been made by them than the democratically elected civilian leader. So it's still. There are still hopes within the biden administration that they can come to some covert arrangement with pakistan. But it's pretty difficult to hide drones and things like that. This is likely going to come out if they do. Come to some secret agreement and it really. Matters is because there are limited options for keeping some kind of presence a us presence in the region to keep an eye on terrorists in afghanistan and to launch operations and pakistan has historically been really important location for that so what were the implications be if the cia if the us cannot use pakistan for this would harm america's ability to conduct intelligence but also to react quickly. If something happens now it's their only option. They do have other options of some of the central asian states but the central asian countries are within vitamin persian. Sphere of influence. A he doesn't really want america setting up shop there so it's going to be really complicated. The fact is america's pulling out all their military from afghanistan biden set a deadline of september eleventh way hearing from people who have been on the ground there that it's going much quicker than that end. Everyone that i speak to who studies area is worried about a civil war in afghanistan which obviously creates the conditions for terrorism to flourish in the ungoverned spaces and all of the terrible things that the last twenty year war has tried to prevent. So what are you watching for next now to be honest. I don't think there's a good chance of the taliban and the afghan government coming to any kind of pace deal before the us pulls out. It's pretty hard to see any scenario of van. A really bloody civil war and everyone hopes that won't happen. But that's where this.

"Just really nothing to stop a hospital from taking you to court to recover that debt and this problem stems from the massive markups. That hospitals are pudding on medical services and procedures. Your reporting shows sometimes as much as twelve times the actual cost. Is anyone trying to reform that. So there's a couple of things going on here wants one yes. The cost of healthcare including hospital care continues to grow every year as that happens what insurers have done in response is to raise patients out of pocket obligations for covering those bills including through deductibles. So cares getting more expensive as patients increasingly more on the hook for it. In addition to their premiums. This is kind of the big question that faces the us. What are we going to do about this cost of care. Because it's becoming increasingly unaffordable. For millions of americans. No one wants to take on the healthcare industry specifically the hospital industry because the first of all they're the largest employer in many congressional districts. Second of all. I mean look at the past year there are health. Care heroes after cova. The narrative is really complicated. And so just the solution. It's often democrats. Say the government should pay for more. A bigger percentage of insurance and reduce out of pocket costs for people. But there's really no comprehensive solution that anyone's talking about on a serious level Kayla is health care reporter for axios and you can find the special report axios dot com and by the way our healthcare team would love to hear.

So what this is. It's a contain study. It looks at the one hundred largest hospitals in the us in largest by revenue they bring in the most money so what it found was that twenty six of the one hundred hospitals take patients to court to recover medical bills in the thing. That is remarkable about this study. it's by definition hospitals that are bringing in a ton of money. It's the top hundred by revenue. It raises the question of if you're suing a patient for seven hundred dollars. What is the end goal here. What kind of protections are in place for patients to avoid having to go to court and not only have to pay but have this on their financial records so do offer financial assistance..

Basically saying we to want to be really tough on china and showed china that we're not backing down when it comes to protecting americans security in being competitive but we're going to do it in our own way so they put out an executive order yesterday. The basically said they would be looking at chinese companies. That do business in the us. In whether these companies put any direct risks to us consumers and sort of analyzing it a point-by-point instead of taking a more blanket approach which is what the trump administration did and just to clear up some confusion. Do we know what the risks already user. Privacy for apps like tiktok. This is always a hard conversation to have about. Chinese owned companies because they claim to be acting in good faith in taking mitigation measures to make sure that the user data of their us users is well-protected. Tiktok has made those promises over the past year or so ever since their business practices. Were called into question. But you never really know how much a company that is.
