"Now it's time for news and comment by the colonel on front lines of freedom. First the news. Take us there, Josh. The Defense Department detailed how it plans to spend nearly $2.2 billion it recovered after canceling border wall construction projects that the Trump Administration funded with money diverted from military projects. Deputy Defense Secretary. Hicks included the plans formalizing the Pentagon's intentions to redirect the money to 66 military projects in 16 countries, 11 States and three territories. The UN obligated money the D O D was able to recover is a fraction of what had been steered toward the border wall. The bulk of the recovered money nearly $1.3 billion will go to projects at overseas bases, including more than $125 million to replace elementary schools in Germany and nearly $135 million for schools in Japan. Other overseas projects include $70 million for an air traffic control terminal at the Army's Garrison and Kwajalein, a toll part of the Marshall Islands. $66 million for upgrades to a taxiway and apron the Navy uses for P eight a Poseidon aircraft in Italy and $53 million for Navy facilities and Bahrain Island. Projects for military facilities in the territories of Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands will get over $608 million. Among those projects. An aircraft maintenance hangar used by the Puerto Rico National Guard will receive $64 million And at the National Guard Readiness Center in Puerto Rico will get $50 million. The Air Force's munitions storage igloos on Guam will get $28.6 million. Stateside bases will receive almost $300 million, including funds for roads, maintenance facilities for Navy ships and peers, fire stations and a dining facility, among others. Fort Greeley in Alaska will get $10 million in funding for a missile field expansion to add two interceptors intended to stop a North Korean attack, the Office of Management and Budget said in a press release. And an Air National Guard facility in Indiana will get $9.4 million for a small arms range to improve marksmanship training. I'm glad our bases and programs will get funding. But it's beyond criminal to funded by leaving our Southern border wide open for illegals who include terrorists, drug smugglers and prostitutes. Well, Texas is going to take matters into their own hands. They plan to use that $250 million to start building their own border wall without the federal government's money or oversight. An Iranian destroyer and support vessel are now sailing in the Atlantic Ocean in a rare mission far from the Islamic Republic, Iran state TV reported without offering the vessels final destination. The trip by the new domestically built destroyer Sahan and the intelligence gathering vessel. Macron originally were thought to be headed to Venezuela to conduct an arms transfer. But have changed course several times and are now heading north off the west coast of Africa. The vessels departed from Iran southern port of Bandar Abbas, said Admiral CRE, Iran's deputy army chief. He described their mission as the Iranian navy's longest and most challenging voyage yet without elaborating. Iranian state TV released a short clip of the destroyer cruising through the Atlantic's rough seas. The video is likely shot from the Macron, a converted commercial oil tanker with a mobile launch platform for helicopters. CRE said quote The Navy is improving its seafaring capability, improving its long term durability and unfavorable sees into the Atlantic. Unfavorable weather conditions, end quote. And added that the warships would not call it any countries port during the mission. Images from Max. Our technologies appear to show seven Iranian fast attack craft typically associated with its paramilitary Revolutionary Guard on the deck of the macron. Satellite imagery suggests that it left port sometime after April 29th. It's clear that we don't know for sure where they're headed. But it is clear that Iran is becoming an even bigger threat to world peace. It's a nation that is clearly an enemy and needs to be dealt with firmly. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General, Mark Milley, told lawmakers that climate change is a serious threat facing the US one that the military must take into account. Middle East. Comments come a day after President Biden told US troops in England that top military leaders had told him about 12 years ago that global warming was the greatest threat facing America due to its effects on population movements. Increased scarcity of land capable of growing food and possible fighting over land. Fight and said, quote when I was over in the tank in the Pentagon when I was first elected vice president with President Obama, the military status down to let us know what the greatest threats facing America were. The greatest physical threats, and this is not a joke. You know what the joint Chiefs told us. The greatest threat facing America was Global warming, end quote. During the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing to discuss the Pentagon's proposed fiscal 2022 budget. Milley said that China is the top military threat facing us and Russia is a considerable great power competitor. Senator Kevin Cramer, Republican of North Dakota, asked Millie about Biden's comments about global warming being America's biggest threat. Millie replied that climate change has had a significant effect on military operations that must be considered. It is the role of the senior military leaders to speak the party line of the president. They are his subordinates. However, I'm very disappointed. The General Milley didn't step down from his position rather than repeat this nonsense..

"Dot com slash dedicated within the secretary of state Mike Pompeo secretary Pompey obviously in times of great economic turmoil like this there's a significant possibility that economic turmoil turns into actual military turmoil we've seen that Iran is starting to get aggressive again they're starting to harass ships again makes perfect sense when you consider that Iran was already on the ropes now the oil prices dropped in some cases below zero in futures contracts which means that they basically have no source of revenue at this point how should the United States be treating around generally how should the United States between around with regard to aid for for corona virus for example I mean I was their citizens are human beings and and we'd love to see those people survive it's not their citizens father government is is a bag of garbage but what what how should the United States between the Iranian regime right now and and what you see is the risk from the Iranian regime toward other actors in the region then president and his team were working on the problem with that in the Islamic Republic Iran we identified them early on as the largest force for instability in the Middle East I'm gonna let you challenge is there but it has been this country that has been the world's largest state sponsor of terror for many many years so our our our mission that was very quick we began by tearing up the Iran nuclear deal it was a disaster in many dimensions and will begin to strip away the things the provided resources for the Iranian regime that's different from the military assistance in the coming by situation broke out United States immediately offered to provide humanitarian assistance to Iran not surprisingly perhaps the machine the cares less about its people than it does about full Medicare around the world rejected the US offer about the so the effort must continue we have to continue to Nitish regime the capacity to import inflict harm around the world and I'll add one more doctor Ben this is connected to China to China has been one of the countries that has continued to take oil from Iran even in the light of the terror campaign that they've engaged in the Iranians even today or working alongside the Chinese on the disinformation campaign authoritarian regimes in times of crisis tend to work together you seem to China become aggressive even during this crisis moving ships into the South China Sea taking down a addition vessel in the South China Sea beans or ten resumes other kinds of regimes that hope to benefit in times of crisis in this case the crisis that emanated from one of the country's though three world the democratic nations of the world need to work together to push back against us it's incredibly important time not only to respond to the virus but to respond for increased belligerency from the start tearing regimes meanwhile secretary Stefan hell because of the giant declining oil prices there's speculation about maybe putting some American allies at risk even non democratic allies like like the kingdom of Saudi Arabia the possibility that as that as that kingdom begins to falter in terms of its ability to to make money off of the toil that that regime could fall into instability one of the long standing American concerns been that if the if the if the rulership of Saudi Arabia or fall if your place by much more radical leadership is that of the increasing concern given the economic circumstances right now it's a great question watching closely in multiple places around the world the impact of the fall no prices countries whose revenue was eighty or ninety percent dependent on clothes from all prices sales of crude oil also seeing increased food security risks in those countries as well some of them may seem far away but that instability in some of those nations as we know the impact the United States to keeping our people safe weather does make clear our primary function of course is to protect Americans worst but those kinds of instability that rest of the body increased terror threats increased global terror campaigns watching them closely throughout the Middle East I I do concern but I I do think Americans should be watching to see how the challenge of their very low historically low crude oil prices can lead to food insecurity and destruction and instability in places that matter awful lot to American security Stepan had that does raise the question as to how vital it is that America reopen as soon as possible there is a report from the United Nations that if the world economy doesn't begin to move again that you could see tens of millions not hundreds of millions of people on the brink of starvation there people are living marginally right now as the supply lines break down their food simply goes away how vital is it for the United States re open and how fast do you think the United States realistically is going to remember what is that re opening look like second what the vice president has forces that we need to get the American economy spark back up just as quickly as we can obviously do so in a way that is safe but I talk to folks back in my home state again that they're they're ready to go they want to get back out gauge in the world I want to do so in a way that reflects the risk but they also know there's enormous rest in their communities to their home towns and I can see from a global perspective the massive poverty the massive destruction of wealth that will be created if we can't figure out a pathway to get our economy is back open and functioning I will love to time where the United States Connolly was on fire the global economy in many places was doing very well we need to do everything we can to walk towards doing that given that back going we'll do our part of the state department we're gonna help these countries organize to get their systems right make sure we get the international coupled with us right so American business people can travel and blood can flow freely across the oceans and air transport can take place all those things need to come together and it's imperative that we do so as quickly as we can make a massive global recession is not safe or secure for the American people will go to get our country another spect open as quickly as we can but US secretary of state Mike Pompeo really appreciate your time thanks to the work that you're doing in this difficult time and I stay safe out there Sir thank you and you do the same song Sir coming up we're gonna be talking about the fact that American students apparently don't know anything about American history like at all like zero things and why that is important first I've been telling you for weeks now FreedomWorks love America campaign it's great you should continue to honor your pledges there but now it is time to start pressuring elected officials to present serious plans to reopen as soon as possible and as safely as possible this can't go on forever and you're seeing governors that are not even promoting plans they're not even suggesting what the metrics are that have to be met in order that people can go back to work right now millions of Americans are unemployed as a new CBO report out today suggesting that given the current state of the markets we could be looking at ten percent unemployment through the end of twenty twenty one that we could be looking at a serious recession if not oppression globally right now we.

C. P. away and lift sanctions did you see the of course is the aid the Iran deal that was yes I agreed in two thousand five and it and then president Donald Trump pulled pulled out of it raising tensions with the with the Iran out there seems to be a disengagement by the trump administration about trying to reach any kind of deal with Iran. well just one thing I mean just the reef for minister of Iran are just Siri actually undermine microphones initiative by stating before he landed that Iran would not negotiate ballistic missiles you know the president left the Iran deal but the provocations from Iran existed since two thousand fifteen since we jump into J. C. K. away if you look at what Iran was doing in Iraq in Syria and Lebanon and Yemen and also it was on his heels and the G. C. P. away actually allowed Iran to go in and save them from what looked like a short short lived tenure there for a little while in two thousand fifteen. there seems to be two strands here that the trump administration is trying to target one is Iranian influence in the Middle East by backing different factions and different parties in different conflicts in the region and the uranium enrichment and the nuclear ambitions right but shouldn't that be on the negotiating table rather than just throw animosity and and and and just through an economic punishment if you will. well I mean how else do you do with the Islamic Republic we gotta remember it was the Obama administration to put heavy sanctions on Iran to bring it to the negotiating table to get to the Iran deal to begin with so the trump administration is trying to do that again and is actually being very successful these publications in the past have resulted in rewards have resulted in and concessions to the Islamic Republic and it's not happening now which is a good thing mean wrong is lashing out in the street of her moves in the Gulf of aid in in bobbled men did in the Gulf of Oman but they're able to do less and less they have a couple wild cards like Lebanese Hizbollah but as we saw with these recent altercations between Israel and Lebanese Hizbollah that neither side is interested in in war especially war at at the request to be wrong so I think I think the international community connects you absorb these unsuccessful provocations and he's on successful attacks and continue to put pressure on this regime they're still under obligation for the the nuclear proliferation treaty but every publication every everything that Iran is doing now with cheating within in the J. secure way is actually cheating on the signatories that are still in the Jessica away these things should to concern Europe that should concern Russia should concern China but that's also part of the problem isn't it because the international community is not United on the way that they're approaching your on there are clear differences if not all that you know if if if if not opposite reactions to your run of the moment between the United States and Europe. yeah I I think I think McComb's been very strong on ballistic missiles and very strong on our Karina runs a malign influence in the region did so destabilizing activities the the fifteen billion dollar pay off I mean this is a this is our what Iran does do these provocations we hope Europe will will do something about it. we hope that that doesn't happen United States back can be in a position to to pressure micro not to do that because it just incentivize is this behavior Mike Pridgen senior fellow of the American think tank the Hudson institute could have a state and Jim script does lead to sports news thank you Rachel starts at the tennis in the U.

And I'm a guy in a dark room in the microphone and upstairs are all these deejays playing commercial free dance parties. There are wondering why is that guy is that grumpy a whole downstairs beaten our butts on the AM. Yeah. He's not even stereo. Well, they may have seemed like an odd. Couple Mogae Ghorbani. Fifty nine thick grey moustache waiter at Darya, a posh Santa Ana Orange County. Persian restaurant, the younger, man. Thirty eight year old Madres Mohammadi do star chubby bald Brown faced bespectacled is Farsi. Nickname was depaul or fat ass El Gordo in in South American the drug tons, but what were they? Well, they they were apparently spies despite their disarming appearance. US authorities allege they were operating in Orange County as agents of these Lana Republic of Iran, more specifically, the Republican guards Islamic revolutionary guard corps, the the the SS of Iran, the guys in charge of external spying terrorism, but cetera not just the Islamic Republic, Iran, but the guys who do the overseas hits. So this is an accusation. Does alarmed many in the local Persian community because it suggests tensions between the US and Iran have spilled over into southern California, which should not be a surprise. According to the FBI and the department of. Justice. The the two guys were doing their goal was to conduct surveillance on Israeli and Jewish facilities in the US specifically in the LA area. And to collect information on members of the majority in the k the MEK is this shadowy, Iranian exile group an armed group that after the Islamic revolution. They fled into Iraq and were were supported by Saddam as a possible way to send a native army back into the Shia Islamic Republic and begin a rebellion. But Saddam supported the k with weapons and food and housing they actually came into Iraq with families and the EMI K were there when we overthrew, Saddam. The EMMY K were still there. And we didn't quite know what to do with them. So they've reform themselves, and they enjoy many many supporters amongst the Persian community here in the United States. The are, of course, the blood enemy of the Mola's and of the Islamic Republic, and the fact that they can raise money and have conferences and all they had to do with disavow violence, whatever the hell they they did. But the United States as far as the Iranians are concerned are harboring this armed enemy of these on the Republic. So these two guys are going to MEK rallies, and there videoing who's there? They're going to some of these conventions that go on in DC. Within the span of a year from the summer of two thousand seventeen to the spring of two thousand eighteen the department of Justice says that the men criss-crossed Orange County and the US videotaping participants at any K rallies in New York and Washington DC and photographing Jewish centers in Chicago. Remember, the the Iranian the could foresee overseas terrorist guys, they blew up the wettest Aries Jewish center with a more than one hundred dead and most of them elderly Jewish people. And so if you're wondering, well, how bad gonna get well, there's precedent for this. The Iranians aren't stupid for all their terrorism. They always do substantial reconnaissance and the purpose of the reconnaissance is to put together as detailed and thorough a dossier as you possibly can make. So that when the actual execution team comes to town, you can hand them. The maps, the photographs your notes, the comings and goings, etc. Whether it be this anti Arabian group, the K or a Jewish center in Beverly Hills. During that time from two thousand seventeen to two thousand eighteen the men flew back and forth between Iran and LAX and appeared to be assembling target packages dossiers that would enable an intelligence or military unit to find fix track and neutralize threat. According to documents filed in Washington DC federal court in at least one instance, the pair were recorded by an FBI listening device as he fifty nine year old waiter Ghorbani briefed do star chubby on a New York. Emmy K event in September two thousand seventeen what what that was was a basically a conference. It was a two day conference in New York with American speaking and anti Islamic Republic Persians American Iranian speaking, everybody in support of the EMI K who again, the Iranians view as a outside rebel army. In the United States is supporting and even worse. Private American citizens of Persian extraction are supporting well. So this means rodeo drive. It means Glendale. It means. It means Irvine enemies, Orange County if you have ever on a Facebook page or anything if you have ever used your your Persian name to express support for the EMI K or opposition to these omic Republic. They have your name. They have your social media footprint, and they have people physically here in LA to take account of you the target of the alleged spying. The EMI K as I said, a shadowy organization with a militant past up until two thousand twelve it was deemed a terrorist organization by the State Department, but they tore off their masks. Have they rewrote a new one? And now they're living with the the complete blessing of the US government here in in in the US, the physically a lot of their fighters are still actually down range in Iraq. There's not a rebel army sending here in the US somewhere. But there are people who want to support it raise money, and they hold conferences for it. So anyway, this right here in southern California Q guys on the payroll of Iranian intelligence gathering information about targets and meetings and things like that the Iranians have a pass track record of reaching out internationally and and doing anti Israeli or specifically anti Jewish terrorism as well. So there are out collecting targets here in southern California. So you should be. Angered and chilled. When we come back the time bomb from the KGB that doesn't even exist anymore.
