"It Talk about it right here And the media won't call them out for that Use Turkey 20 18 Has he instructed general Milly to change any of the ways that he's operating Has he asked him to inform him more about some of the conversations that he's having Is there been any practical change on this current No Not in the least Has full trust and confidence in chairman Nelly and the job that he's doing And that was a reporter asking a question of The Pentagon press secretary John Kirby and the he in the question was in fact the defense secretary Austin And so again the word from on high is the complete faith trust and confidence in the chairman milley As we go back to a more calls here I would just have to ask you your thoughts about whether or not behind the scenes the word might be put out You've become a bit radioactive It would be really good if you retired now with full honors blah blah blah and got out of here Do you think it likely that that might happen I think if this were 5 years ago that would have been very likely regardless of which party was in The White House but there does seem to be this air of unaccountability or untouched ability on the part of the Biden administration where they just simply embrace a failure and call it a win We saw this with the Afghan withdrawal where Biden every day was coming out saying this is all going according to plan as everything's falling apart We see this right now Biden can't even get his infrastructure Bill really passed in a friendly Congress and he's saying don't worry everything's under control I've got this So I do think there's this error of on accountability arrogance on the part of the Biden team where I don't think they will make him go Millie but I do think that Millie is setting a very dangerous precedent and I also want to make something clear I wrote about this a few weeks ago at my website I don't think Millie is ideologically woke in the way that we talk about the left being woke I think that he and those like him have come to the conclusion that the future of the political system is going to be run by the Democrats and he wants to get on their good graces so that he can always secure place for himself and those like him as well as to secure funding for the DoD Because ultimately the things that he's embraced you think he doesn't even believe them I have enough I'm a consultant for the DoD I have enough interaction with three and four star generals to know what these guys are really like behind the scenes and almost none of them are even the Democrats Almost none of them are socially woke the way that the Democrat parties base But they're really over and playing dead They absolutely are because they think the future of the political system is going to be run by the Democrats and they want to get in the good graces of those people Here's Tommy and Charleston West Virginia good evening And I got to tell you for the first time in a long time I'm just picked off listening to yourself and your guest Okay You do not know what kind of pressures Millie was dealing with when president baby boy general bone spurs the whatever I don't care He was the president of the United States and Billy acted unconstitutionally and illegally I don't care what his motivation was or whether or not you like Donald Trump for the record I don't like Donald Trump either But he was the president of the United States and this was totally illegal That's right That's right I was a supporter of the former presidents but over the course of his presidency I became somewhat disenchanted And so I am by no means a fanatic and I would say this by the way if this occurred under Obama In fact a similar situation did occur under Obama with Stanley McChrystal who was the U.S. Army general in charge of Afghanistan He was very gung Ho about continuing the war doing the surge strategy and basically he gave an interview his staff did where he was disparaging both vice President Biden at the time and president Obama to Rolling Stone magazine Those comments were quoted in print And Obama basically holds the crystal back to The White House from Afghanistan and fired him And you know what Obama was right because that was incredibly inappropriate We have a duty as citizens in this country to not fall into the trap of a stratocracy of a military junta and so I think I firmly believe in the civilian control over the armed forces And so I think this is true of any president not just a Democrat or business true of all prices We have to make sure our military is pointed at the bad guys and that they're not using their power to change the political system within America And people who think that it's okay to break the law if something irks you Well right sorry I happen to be irked by that Toby A lot of people just like exactly Toby and Charleston South Carolina good evening That would be me brother all right here's a deal I said Derek listen to duty that is correct because you failed to protect and defend the constitution United States but if nothing else they could get him for conduct unbecoming officers And he is a general officer The thoughts in that regard Brandon Yeah well I think there's a litany of things that can be done but I think it's very telling that we're living in an age where nothing will be done to this man And maybe in a year or two he does resign and goes out to great fanfare and they kind of put them out the pasture But I can assure you the person who follows him will be as rabid rapidly political if not more than he was He's setting a precedent right now It used to be the joint chiefs of staff the chairman was sort of this kind of end of the career kind of quiet twilight But now it's becoming a political position like any other in Washington and it's clearly aimed at being pro Democratic Party or at least sympathetic And to the caller from West Virginia that was very angry I would like to also say that yes general Millie probably was under a lot of pressure I think president Trump was not correct to do some of the things he did after the election But he could have as you said Jim resigned if he felt that strongly about it But he didn't do that You know that's just inappropriate It's just completely inappropriate And illegal More to come.

A different picture biden said that will change perception. That will change an awful lot. I think now. What's so incredible about the statement from biden is that it is. It's another example that this regime and the way that democrats view government is not about actually implementing things that are objectively real. It's about whether or not they can persuade you on television. That what they're saying is actually happening. I want you to read. I want you to listen to this carefully.

Lie that lloyd. Austin and mark milley and john kirby and tony blinken have been telling the big lie that they had no idea that kabul was going to fall was is pathologically untrue.

You got to leave before the thirty first because you've got to get the military equipment out you can't evacuate everybody on the last day because then what about all the weapons. All the soldiers all the marines. And she says yeah. We're gonna leave earlier. Well we're going to get out of this so i it's it's already to roll. That was the white house now. The same question was asked of john cabbie today and what did he reply eight there will be. There will be a transition more towards getting military assets out as we get closer to the end but again we're going to continue to work the evacuation mission right up until the last day. So which is it. Biden administration is that we will stop evacuating people so we can get the military equipment. Out or will we be evacuating americans and really everybody else who can get to the airport. The thousands and thousands and thousands of afghan nationals.

The numbers very fluid literally changes nearly by the hour. It's not more fluid than than these eleven thousand thirty seven hundred even several thousand right now. They have no they know they know how many americans are left behind in afghanistan. But he won't say it but this is not flu now. Tell us why good for him. I don't know who that is what you need to find him. You know you had Gerald snarky sake. They're saying we were in touch with them by email by text. Were calling them. Well if you have that ability then you know exactly. How many americans are there. Yeah that's right now. Right you know what We're talking to bill adams. But i don't build him says his family so there you go. There's four people right there. Okay the problem. Don't you think friends and relatives loved ones. Back here are called the pentagon the white house and they did. They know exactly how many are left. They don't wanna tell you 'cause it's a shocking number well because come august thirty first which is not this weekend next win. Is it next wednesday. Yeah it is next one thing. You come next wednesday when they've released thirty thousand afghani citizens and they've taken them out of afghanistan but they've left behind four thousand americans. Those are the americans wanted to stay. Bill they wanna work for the taliban wrong with they. They wanted to stay yet right. They're gonna try to spin this. They're going to try to sell that line trial. You want next tuesday by the way. It's a week from today that it's close. We're going to be talking Literally this time next week we're going to be sitting here talking about. This is deadline day. What's going to happen. That was a meeting. They had a meat that was their cia meeting. That happened on now. Like we're going to hear the results but that already happened dinner. Yes so this was a secret meeting. That's i mean literally just being reported in the past fifteen minutes that the cia director flew to afghanistan into a bull to speak with the taliban leader and essentially try to figure something out. Because you know yesterday. The taliban says hard line if you don't get everyone else. Soldiers citizens by august goes i in their words. They said there will be consequences so instead of us literally just going in and killing them like we should because there are terrorists. We're now going in there with the cia director in secret meeting legitimising in having these meetings to try to work out a plan to extended deadline or get everybody. How dare you say that you animal just go in there and killed destroy them all with the brits yes that's what they're doing by all reports are going destroying taliban their way to know. But we're gonna go into work negotiate. Bill we speak they are roaches. This is what biden does stamp them out. A agree they wait. Wait wait till august thirty. First you're right. If anybody god forbid and americans left it is nothing like honestly i mean. I pose questions you guys. How is that our plan that we're not going in there and just destroying these taliban and getting everybody out. Why is that so hard to do. Because they don't want. I don't know it's i don't know what the long term goal is. Just don't want to offend. I would it is. I can't imagine there's a navy seal sitting at home right now thinking i want. This is what we can do. We can go in and how about the job. The marines on the ground now are doing their keeps. We've all seen videos ending some of them posted from the military. They're trying to these thousands of afghans at the wall of the airport. They're trying to protect them. Keep them calm given water bottles to people holding babies.

Saying that since the drawdown began or was announced, 42,000 people have been evacuated. But in the last, um 10 days or so. This is day 11. So in the last 10 days Of Americans held hostage in Afghanistan, 37,000 Have been evacuated, but Here's the but Six out of seven have been Afghan nationals or Afghan refugees or 3rd, 3rd Nation or different third parties. One. One out of seven. Have been Americans. So why weren't Americans prioritized to begin with? Why weren't Americans civilians gotten out first? This is what is wrong with the Biden administration with the Biden regime. They don't place Americans first and foremost on the priority. You heard Jen Psaki snapped back at Peter Doocy.

"I think it's fair to say. The taliban is an enemy of the united states right. We'll john kirby refuses to say so. The pentagon pentagon top spokesperson declined to say whether or not america's military consider the taliban to be an enemy of the united states. Meanwhile they are calling the unvaccinated enemy. Course how dare they not take the shot even though white house. Staffers are not forced to take the shot. Jen psaki is not forced to take the shot. Ron klein is not forced to take the shot. But those are the enemies. Of course john. Kirby refuses to say whether or not the taliban is an enemy of the united states of america we are living through a national trauma right now. National trauma is a concept that has been well developed in psychology and social psychology. And it really of takes a look at the mental toll or the psyche of a nation. Now we know how unserious a nation we are when we see stories like this lease these stories where twenty three thousand students and staff in atlanta are forced to quarantine because a couple of students got the chinese corona virus. Twenty three thousand students. That's not a serious nation. Just not but what does this mean. Or what is this communicate. Or what does this tell us about our ability to defend ourselves. Do you know what's been really interesting as i've been watching the news coverage and people about the taliban taking over is that people are not worried that the taliban is gonna come to new york city anytime soon. There might be some worried that they'll come across the southern border with weapons but instead they're disgusted that people that are that degenerate that are that week could overthrow something that we did so quickly. And i don't think we even understand the significance or the damage that this has done to teenagers right now. That have never seen the great country that they sometimes hear whispers about. They're not taught about it in school. By of course not why would they be taught about that about in schools but now when they are going to start to see the the saber rattling from china they're gonna think do even have the ability to do that. They now are going to think of the image of the taliban taking over the entire capital around the table staring into the camera and taunting the americans. And how do americans respond. We'll new reports out today. Show that we are now negotiating with the taliban asking them for help and support to try to get americans out. The taliban in fact has come out the goat hurting perverts. From the sixth century they have said that biden's august thirty first withdrawal. Date is a red line here that they are drawing red lines. They are calling shots. Meanwhile if you look at many democrat commentators they have pictures of the taliban that say they're taliban and they have pictures of trump's supporters that say our taliban that's how democrats view they view you as the taliban michael moore has said this by michael moore is a very serious person but he is influential lot of followers they will use military assets. They already are against american citizens very soon. The story breaking today as i mentioned is that the taliban has told america that if they don't get out of the country by august thirty first there will be consequences. Cut twenty two. Stephen colbert calls trump voters the taliban he says. Why should our soldiers be fighting radicals in a civil war in afghanistan. we've got our own on capitol hill. Play twenty two. We've had troops there for twenty years. They fought they sacrificed their families sacrifice. So that we wouldn't have a terrorist attack in america planned in a foreign country. Why should our soldiers fighting radicals in a civil war in afghanistan. we've got our own on capitol hill and everyone applauds.

"I wanted to actually start with Chris Wallace, though he did an interview with the Pentagon secretary John Kirby. The discussion was Afghanistan, the Taliban and why the current administration seems to be comfortable with the Taliban taking so much control so quickly. Already, some of the conversation here should be alarming because it is almost nonchalant. In the data that's presented by Wallace and the response to it. The Let's see what happens version of of dealing with this situation, a situation we've been involved in for a long time, of course, and one where we do not want to see. I think this is the most simplistic way to say it the rise of the Taliban once again in the area, But here's part of that conversation on the U. S. Has spent almost two decades training up the Afghan military and the police. We've spent over $88 billion over that time, training them up. Why are they failing so miserably? Repelling the Taliban. What? You're right, Chris. They have much more capacity than they've ever had before, much more capability, and they got a an air force, a very capable air force helping defend their troops on the ground. They've got very sophisticated special forces who have been in the fight, and they're brave fighters. So this is a moment of leadership. And you heard the president talked about that the other day. It's the right and responsibility now to defend their citizens in their country. And I think when we look back, whatever the outcomes are, Chris, we're going to look back and we're going to be able to say that it came down to leadership. Have to stop it right there for just a second, because to say that it Whatever the outcome is, it came down to leadership as tremendously, um, scary. I don't think there's a better word for that's that should Be very telling as far as the the likelihood that the Taliban might take back power in that area and that the United States will essentially not care. Um which, obviously, we should. Here's a little bit more. But John, you're talking about how well set up the Afghan military is. They're giving up huge swaths of the country. The Taliban now say that they control 85% of the country. I know you dispute that people are Fleeing the country. Are you surprised that the Taliban is making these kinds of sweeping advances so quickly? We're certainly watching with deep concern Chris the deteriorating security situation and the violence, which is, of course, way too high, deep concern. We're watching with deep concern as we continue down the trajectory that the Biden administration has created for us to remove all troops. Even sooner than initially planned, and to just hope that things go better in an area where things are already getting much, much worse. This to me says a lot. Beyond just the situation about the way this administration responds to anything that goes against what they want to be happening, whether it's the border. Whatever the situation is where, you know we have this this version, this idyllic society version where we hope for something good to happen. It doesn't so let's just ignore the problem. Let's not go fix it. Let's not do anything better. I let's just stop talking about it and move on. Something else, Maybe something we can better control. One other quick thing. Trump gave a speech at CPAC. A lot of interesting things, said I. I do think that Trump wins over audiences. Certainly when he's in front of audiences that love the guy based on the humor that he presents within those conversations, and it does exist, both people on the left and the right can agree. I think That Donald Trump can be funny, he joked about Hunter Biden. He joked about the amount of toothbrushes and homes that Joe Biden owns. For a guy who's a career politician. Here's a little bit of that, as Vice President Joe Biden flew his son Hunter. Around the world on Air Force two sucking up money like a vacuum planing. Hunter's emails show that he collected millions and millions of dollars from foreign nations, including Ukraine. While setting aside They cut. To the big guy who is the big guy? That's Joe Biden. Well, that who's the big guy? It's my and Here's the toothbrush joke. By the way, Joe Biden has all these houses. He's always been like a senator or a congressman. Right? For many years blue. I didn't know you made that kind of money that yet mentions your bench. Does Louie Gohmert have mansions all over Texas? I don't think so. Got one house, and that's enough. That's all. You need. Right lawyer wants to go home to his bathroom in his bedroom and uses one toothbrush, right? No, but Joe's got a lot of tooth brushes. I don't think anyone writes these speeches. I don't think their plan, but at times I think they're fairly effective in how much they separate. This person are former president from anyone else doing politics. We all need to separate ourselves in our industry. He separated himself for sure. And it seems to continue to work for the guy. Quick break a lot.

"A couple things here. Mm. I am. Have a Let me get to this thing The Pentagon is pushing back at GOP lawmakers over critical race theory claims. Now I have something else that goes into this. Let me pull this up here as well. I have a couple of stories on this. So This. This whole story and bear with me. I'm pulling this up This whole story. This is from politico. And political was reporting the sad to do with the, uh, remember the Mili remarks at the hearing. Now they're defending comments made by Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin. Because some lawmakers are saying that Austin misrepresented the department's stance on the teaching of critical race theory. Now there was an Air Force Academy professor who wrote an op ed in defense of Teaching critical race theory. Here's what I want to be very careful with. Do not be gas lit into thinking that these are not principles of critical race theory. A told you that this is this is a tactic that people are trying that advocates of Critical race theory are trying to use. Uh, who was I speaking with the other day? They were saying that, uh, you know if you're quoting scripture in class and using that as educational material, and then someone accuses you of teaching from the Bible, you can't very well go. Oh, no, I'm not teaching from the Bible at all, Even though you're literally quoting it. That's kind of the same situation here with these principles of critical race theory, because it is it's all coming from the whole Derek Bell Robin D'Angelo of Ybor mix candy, the whole their whole philosophy in their Marx's theory. So there was an Air Force Academy professor who was who had been wrote an op ed in Washington Post defending discuss, like teaching the subject, not discussing it, and that's the other thing. This is it's it's a harmful, divisive racist theory. There. You're there are certain things that are either or There's certain times that call for nuance. There's certain things that call for gray areas. This is not one of them. When you are promoting A way of thinking and you're teaching it as academic fact. When you are teaching that the whole republic is so flawed that it has to be entirely deconstructed and rebuilt when you were teaching that you're first. Thoughts about meeting someone are should be should revolve around their ethnicity. When you are teaching that We shouldn't be treating people the same that we should be actually employing. Discrimination. Or whatever other negative means necessary in order to secure the exact same outcome for everyone. That is problematic. There is no other way about it. The only way that this should even be relevant in any kind of classroom discussion is to ridicule how stupid it is. And how racist it is. End of story. They're not just discussing the subject with cadets. As this professor wrote in Washington Post, they're teaching it. Now spokesperson John Kirby. Is defending He well, he's defending this and saying that This is you know, this is their these professors. They're teaching it, he told Politico Quote. A professor at an academic institutions such as Air Force Academy teaches a given theory as part of an elective course It does not in the slightest way, signify some larger effort by the department to teach a spouse or embrace it Theory. Okay, so She defended it. I read The Washington Post editorial that she wrote actually talked about it on my show. No apologies. I asked Dan Crenshaw. The other day. Uh, day before yesterday about this She wasn't just discussing she was defending it as legitimate thought. She was not only defending it and teaching materials in the class, but she was defending it in her Washington Post editorial. And so when John Kirby says here, he's like this does not signify an effort by the department to teach. That's a lie. John Kirby is a line deal. Because She wrote. Hold the professor and question literally wrote a whole editorial about this. Describing how she is teaching it and defending it. As legitimate. But it doesn't stop there.

How is it not discrimination to force someone of the opposite sex to recognize you as shared gender. And violating their free speech and free association. Exactly. There's only one person whose rights are being violated here, and it's the right of the people who are being told that they do not have free speech.

He was all excited about it. He tweeted a photo of himself getting the vaccine, he says, Get your shot. I got mine. He's got a face mask on that says the juice. So that way, although his face is covered, you know who would It's amazing to me that he still thinks that people want to see him in the spotlight. I guess we do talk about him in every tweet and remember what he joined Twitter. Actually, I think you would ever having the conversation of Should we follow him? I was like now. We shouldn't.

After accusations from Republicans and 9 11 survivors that it was prioritizing terror suspects over Americans. Defense Department press secretary John Kirby. John Kirby is back at the Defense Department, he says, quote no Guantanamo detainees have been vaccinated. We're positing the plan to move forward as we review force protection protocols. We remain committed to our obligations to keep our troops Safe, Uh, they apparently Beverly had planned on vaccinating the 40 detainees. Gitmo and again before your grandma gets vaccinated they were going to do, uh, war criminals and included in this is the suspected mastermind of the September 11 attacks. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed or chaos them so Is it possible that chaos, um would get a vaccination before 9 11 survivors. That is where we are in this country. Once again, we have failed to shoot KSM. Uh, this time with the vaccine. So what? Like who in their right mind thought this was a good idea. The claim was the prosecutors were concerned that they weren't gonna be able to move forward with the war crimes hearings at the base, which let me say when did the 9 11 attacks happened? When did they occur? All that was almost 20 years ago. And we're still awaiting war crimes hearings that get mouth Right now.
