Official says over 10,000 Ukrainian troops killed in war
"A top adviser to Ukraine's president, has cited military chiefs as saying 10,000 to 13,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in the country's 9 month old struggle against Russia's invasion. Michael podolak has given new figures about Ukrainian soldiers killed in battle, while noting the number of injured troops was higher and civilian casualty counts significant. The rare comment is far below estimates of Ukrainian casualties from western leaders last month, general Mark milley, the chairman of the U.S. joint chiefs of staff, said as many as 40,000 Ukrainian soldiers and well over 100,000 Russian soldiers have been killed or wounded, he added that it was the same thing probably on the Ukrainian side.

Russia didn't take US phone call after Poland missile strike
"The Pentagon's top officer says he tried to get in touch with his Russian counterpart after a missile strike in Poland Joint chiefs chairman Mark milley says his staff reached out Attempts were made no success which raises concerns about high level communications with Moscow in a crisis and a news conference Millie says it appears unlikely either Russia or Ukraine will score a decisive military victory Could Russia conquer Ukraine theoretically Maybe I guess but the probability of that happening is close to zero And it's highly unlikely Russian forces will be booted off Ukrainian land entirely Millie says Moscow's military is suffering badly That plus a potential winter slowdown in fighting could lead to talks on ending the war Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin says that's not up to the U.S. The Ukrainians are going to decide that not us Sagar Meghani Washington
Former DNI John Ratcliffe on Putin's Potential Use of Nuclear Weapons
"Say this, Charlie, because I get this question a lot. And I know you're concerned about escalation, all Americans are. We talk about nuclear weapons and would Putin use a tactical nuclear weapon and there's been a lot of speculation about that. One thing I've been disappointed in folks out of The Pentagon, you know, not sort of spokespeople not talking about this issue is, look, when it comes to nuclear weapons and nuclear protocols, you know, Vladimir Putin has wide latitude to use certain weapons of mass destruction and he has to the detriment of populations around the world. And that would include chemical and biological. But I will say this when it comes to the use of nuclear weapons ever since, you know, the Cuban missile crisis in the old Soviet Union and Nikita Khrushchev, the old pilot bureau stepped in and said, when it comes to nuclear weapons, we don't want a crazy person, you know, making one off decision. And so they've got some pretty rigid protocols when it comes to the use of actual nuclear weapons that Vladimir Putin wouldn't be making those decisions by himself. And that's something that I think could give should give everyone some comfort as this thing. To be honest, that's one factor. I don't trust the fools that pulled off Afghanistan right now in our own government. I mean, Lloyd Austin and Mark milley, they gave us the Afghanistan debacle, and I'm supposed to, I mean, I want the checks and balances on our guys, not to say they're going to use nuclear weapons, but to your point. I mean, the world is on fire. I mean, like we talked about, Russia's doing things they weren't doing. China's doing things with Taiwan that they weren't doing. North Korea is doing things that they haven't done since 2017, the first year of the Trump administration. I mean, all of these things are because of what you said, Charlie, who's in charge, who's making the decisions where the deterrent factor is or the lack thereof. So should you have confidence? Absolutely not.
Why Is the Republican Party Putting Up With This?
"The Democrat party does with the regime asks the Democrat party has become an instrument of the CIA, the FBI, the woke Department of Defense, the question I want to ask today is why is the Republican Party putting up with this? Why is the Republican Party authorizing more money to be sent to Ukraine and allowing the reckless escalation of a conflict halfway around the world? That very well could result in nuclear war. We had several politicians here on this program, senator Rick Scott senator Kramer, and every time I asked them about Ukraine and I have a lot of respect for both those men, I think they're men of integrity, but I'll be honest, when I ask them about these topics, the lack of depth on the issue is extraordinary. For example, senator Kramer came on this program. Again, nice man, we had a nice disagreement on this. And he said there is really no limit to the amount of money that we will send to Ukraine. This is complete and total madness. Why is the Republican Party trusting and Mark milley and Lloyd Austin and Tony blinken and Brennan, the same people that have messed up Afghanistan and messed up every single foreign policy blunder of the last couple of years of Jake Sullivan stumbling into the best case scenario another Afghanistan, the worst case scenario all out nuclear war.

Jim Hanson and Sebastian Discuss Army Gen. Mark Milley's Stupidity
"Listen to that obese individual, lecturing us on the latest talking points of critical race theory. Play cut. On the issue of critical race theory, et cetera, I'll obviously have to get much smarter on whatever the theory is. But I do think it's important, actually. For those of us in uniform, to be open minded and be widely read, and the United States military academy is a university. And it is important that we train and we understand, and I want to understand white rage. And I'm white. And I want to understand it. I just have to ask you just the obvious question. This is the most senior military official in America, still is the most inefficient in America despite the surrender of Afghanistan and the $80 billion worth of equipment and training left there. How stupid is this man? He just literally said at the Senate hearing. I don't know what CRT is. But it's good and it needs to be taught at West Point. I mean, that is like imbecile. That's a double digit IQ. Am I missing something, Jim? No, I think he must have had a parachute not open at some point and bounced on his head. And the worst thing is, I agree, we should study our enemies. The problem is he's not talking about studying CRT, which is racist and studying these other things as if they were something to be avoided. He's talking about teaching them as doctrine and now what we've done is we've created a military where everybody no longer thinks they're on one team. He's broken them in down by identity politics. So you got your gay wing, you're trans wing and you're black wing and all of this. And everybody now thinks the other person is cheating them. So instead of one teen pulling together where the only color anybody bleeds is green, you've got identity politics, woke garbage and nobody's now scared of the same lunch meat guy there. Also said that China seems to be getting more aggressive. I wonder why.
Trump Gave Order to 'Make Sure' Jan. 6 Rally Was 'Safe Event'
"This is from just the news a great news site Founded by and run ultimately by John Solomon Since the hearings have been undercut by a fundamental fact Trump's actions before the riot began Included urging supporters to peacefully and patriotically express their opinions And ordering his top age to ensure there was a large contingent of National Guard troops at the ready to ensure no trouble ensued A capital police timeline obtained by just a new shows the Trump Pentagon first offered National Guard troops to the capitol police on January 2nd Four full days before the event Jeremy doesn't put this in The New York Times piece The police turned down the offer but then began to have second thoughts the capitol police then asked their political minders the house sergeant of arms chief among them For permission to accept the troops on January 4 But were turned down on the ground that such a show of force would create bad quote unquote optics The records show But the most compelling piece of evidence that Trump wanted to thwart rather than in sight violence is contained in a long memo written by The Pentagon inspector general They chronicled the assistance the Department of Defense offered Congress both ahead of enduring the riot In it the inspector general recounts a fateful meeting on January 3rd In The White House with an acting defense secretary Christopher Miller and general Mark milley chairman of the joint chiefs of staff met with Trump on national security matters This was not in Jeremy's article in The New York Times
Former DIA Officer Rebekah Koffler on Russia-Ukraine Predictions
"I'm curious as a senior DIA officer as you were specializing on truly strategic threats. You weren't focused on Vanuatu or Belgium, you were focused on the Russian Federation. If you had said in the space of 6 weeks, that this threat will last three days, and then you said it could last years or decades. Would something negative have happened to you if you'd said that in space of 6 weeks without having consequences for Rebecca coughler if you'd so changed your mind? Well, because it's a government, I probably wouldn't have been fired. But I would never be invited to brief senior officials. As you know, a brief White House of brief pentagons, CIA, directors NATO, and so they probably, I would be in the downstairs writing on the basement. Basement of the DIA. So just to remind you guys, that's Mark milley, who said three days, Kyiv is going to fall in three days, 6 weeks later he said, yes, maybe not decades, but definitely is. That's the disgrace to the U.S. Army uniform that fat general who should have resigned after Afghanistan but didn't
The US Military Is Struggling to Meet Its 2022 Recruiting Goals
"Is one of our great successes as a nation, strongest military ever to exist in the history of the world. NBC News. Every branch of the military is struggling to make its 2022 recruiting calls, officials say. With record low number of Americans eligible to serve, and few of those willing to do it, it's quote, is this the year, the question of sustainability of the all volunteer force. I wonder why. These people. It's an intentional destruction of the U.S. Military. That's what they've been doing. Every branch of the U.S. Military is struggling to meet its fiscal year 2022 recruiting goals. The official said The Pentagon top leaders are now scrambling for ways to find new recruits to fill out the ranks of the all volunteer force, defense secretary Lloyd Austin and deputy secretary Kathleen hicks consider the shortfall is serious issue. Yeah, maybe you should have thought of that before you wanted to mandate an experimental gene therapy and kick out active duty personnel, which Republicans did nothing to oppose. This is a start of a long drought for military recruiting, said retired general Thomas spore of the heritage foundation. He said the military has had not such a hard time signing recruits since 1973. Quote, 2022 is the year we questioned the sustainability of the all volunteer force. Now that NBC News article continues and they say, oh, it's because of the psychological trauma quote they think they're going to be physically or emotionally broken after serving. That's not why. I'll tell you why it's happening. Two things. They don't want to take in a vaccine against their will, and they don't want to serve under this. Put that on screen. Rachel Levine and the new LGBTQIA+ regime in our military and also people want to enlist in a military that plays to win Afghanistan was a humiliation. From Lloyd Austin and Mark milley.
The Left's Woke Indoctrination of the Military With Nick Freitas
"It would be seriously remiss of me if I didn't ask you this question given your background. So my background, so I'm an immigrant, a legal immigrant. I naturalized in 2012, ended up in The White House working for president Trump. But for about the last decade, I had quite a close relationship with Bragg. I've been teaching as a guest instructor on the Q course, the 18 alpha officers course, and also warrant offices, the 18 alpha course as well. The one 81 80 alpha as well. And I love it. And I love those guys, especially when you're talking to warrants, you know, who've had 9, 9 tools in the sandbox. You're not teaching them anything. You're standing there with a card rate just listening to what they have to say. But given that association, what we've witnessed in the last 16 months, your well plugged in with your brotherhood back at bragging elsewhere. Your reaction, your comments, to what is politely turned, the work efficacy of the American military, what we've seen in terms of the pride flag being flown over the air force recruits in that recent Twitter ad, Mark milley saying, yes, we have I'm white and we have to understand white rage. How bad is it? What are you hearing and how concerned are you as a former operator? Well, people are people are very frustrated because they feel like I saw this tweet today and they were talking about the navy pushing for safe spaces. And like, you know, it used to be that the safe space, the military was responsible for was the United States and keeping it safe from foreign militaries and foreign threats. Now all of a sudden, the military is once again become a Petri dish for social engineering. For the left. And there's a lot of frustration because again, if you go into the military and I think especially certain careers in the military that you know are going to put you in a great deal of danger. There's a certain expectation that you're going to have a strong grip on reality because you don't get to play the games that we do in the sociology class at Cal Berkeley when it gets to the battlefield. Things like biology matters, reality matters. And when you start to ignore that, people die from that. That's not a, this is not the typical Elizabeth Warren where if you don't agree for every regulation she likes, you want people to die. No, we operate in an environment where people die when we don't recognize reality. If you deny reality that'll cost.

Chris Farrell and Sebastian Discuss the Deep State
"Now there's a double whammy here because in the beginning, it would be big enough challenge for legacy national security architectures like the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, to suddenly switch targets and say, okay, it's not the Soviet Union, but we have to deal with cultural marxists who are American in America trying to undermine America. That would be hard enough because that's like trying to get a, you know, an ocean liner to become a catamaran. But then there's the double difficulty when these institutions are captured by those self same neo Marxist next gen leftists, clearly, or at least when people like Mark milley or Christopher at the FBI parrot, the verbiage for people. Correct. And this is going to sound almost too personal, but I mean, so I'm going to say it anyway. There are two stupid to know the difference. They are so intellectually unpack that. That's really important. That's really important. And you have to know enough to be able to ask the question. And so when you choke down wholesale, the garbage put out by the 1619 Project. That white rage in America is founded on racism. And so the starting point is, yes, that's the starting point. Matt, well, what are you talking about? What does the foundation for what you're let me unwind your argument and really prove or disprove? And when you have Howard zinn of all people and his history book is probably the de facto go to history book in three quarters of the country's high school. The people's history, the Marxist lensed people's history of America. So that's your starting point. And you've brainwashed these people into believing, oh, I'll give you another great example. This is very superficial, but it's impactful. Since when are Republicans read that a vest is a bugbear for me. So let's unpack that. If you go back to Reagan's landslide victory and you look at all the news reporting, you show that they show the entire country blue, except for Wisconsin. I think it's Wisconsin. Yeah. Which is red because mondale wins his home state. But the red is always the color of the left. Every country of the globe.
The War on Whiteness With Douglas Murray
"Let's talk about this war on white people. That's a thought crime Douglas. You're not allowed to say you're obviously welcome to say it here. We agree, we believe that all forms of racism are evil and awful. But the one type of racism you're not allowed to talk about, of course, is a war on people that look like you and I. Why is that? Does it have something to do with how they view racism only to be a power struggle if you have more numbers, therefore you can't be racist. And Douglas, you said something, and I've repeated it many times and I give you a credit about half the time, just so you're just so we're clear. When you were on this conversation with Dennis prager and you just said, we have a supply and demand problem with racism in the west. I said, that is one of the smartest things I've ever heard anybody say. Navigate us through that. So, as I say, there's a supply and demand problem. But there's a demand for racists and thankfully small supply in countries like America, very few people are actually white supremacists. Dennis breger said, he said, I haven't been met a white supremacist ever come across one. I mean, there are some out there, but I mean, it's not like American life is riddled with. Among the contrary, most people in America are very decent, very open minded. All the stats show it. And it's a profound smear on this country and its people to pretend that everyone is racist. But here's the thing. As you say, and it's a thought crime in many places, I don't care. I'm committing it anyway. There is a war against white people. The only permissible racism of our time is racism against white people. And if anyone doubts that. If anyone doubts it, try any of the following phrases, these pathologizing phrases used about white people. We've had white fragility. Imagine if we had a New York Times bestselling book called black fragility. We've had white tears imagine if you had black tears. Imagine if instead of laughing at white women's tears, we talked about black women's tears. Imagine if instead of white rage, people said, oh, I think there's a thing called black rage, and imagine if the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff Mark milley testified in Congress and said, I want to look into black rage.

Does Charlie Fear Nuclear War?
"Do you fear nuclear war? Do you really fear Putin would dare launch nuclear missile? He knows that it would be a total destruction of mother Russia. He's aggressive power hungry, but he's not crazy. So what do I fear? I fear how incompetent corrupt and unable are leaders are to do very basic things. And so yes, I'm terrified of putting our current leaders in these situations. I do not trust them at all. And I know you don't either. And that seems to be the point of agreement. As I've been emailing back and forth to the hundreds of listeners that say Charlie, we should get involved, we should help. I say, do you trust our leaders? No, I don't. Then why do you want to get involved? You might want to, but then getting involved itself is a completely different question of the competency of the people in charge. So do I fear things getting out of control? Yeah, I do. Of course I do. With the current leadership class of Mark million Lloyd Austin and Jake Sullivan. Kamala Harris, you trust Kamala Harris? To solve this? You can trust Kamala Harris to go into. Does that really is the position of the Republican Party right now? The position of the Republican Party is that we want to stand with Ukraine. Therefore, we're going to go give a bunch of money. So Mark milley, Lloyd Austin, Jake Sullivan, Kamala Harris, and Joe Biden can be in charge.
If You Don't Trust Mark Milley, Why Would You Make Him More Powerful?
"You don't trust Mark milley, why would you make Mark milley more powerful? And that's really what we're talking about here. Mark milley Lloyd Austin are the big winners in this entire equation. So if you don't like that Mark milley testified in front of Congress saying that white rage is the greatest threat in our military, the greatest threat to national security. If you support Ukrainian intervention, he's your player, whether you like it or not. He's on the roster. You got to deal with the roster that you have in front of you. That should be part of your calculus and your decision. If you don't like what's happening in Ukraine, no one likes what's happening in Ukraine. So then what do you want to do? What do you do about it? Do you want an escalated conflict? Are we willing or able to be able to engage in that? Let me read another email here. Hi Charlie, I'm a 66 year old retired police officer and was once an enthusiastic supporter of yours. Therefore, it pains me to say goodbye to you forever. Okay. Your characterization of those over 50 is being warmongers and neocons are simply because our desire to defend a sovereign country against evil, murdering despot is not only insulting, but erroneous as well. First of all, I didn't say that. It's ridiculous. I said that over 50 tens to want more military intervention than under 30. And I said that's a generalization, but it's not a rule, whatever. He said, quote, if Russian warships or submarines parked off the coast of Florida, started lobbing shells around your condo in Florida, killing innocent people, wouldn't you want someone with the power to come and defend you to your aid? Of course I'd like that. We also have a United States military to try to prevent against that. That's not the point. I'm sure the Ukrainian people want support. I'm sure the Yemenis people want support. I'm sure the Nigerians in Africa who are being slaughtered once support. I'm sure the Iranian people want support. There's a lot of corners of the world where we can make arguments for military intervention.

waistband holster in your spine all the time You're always like man the radios And I must have kicked or tripped the audio thing to be super loud So we get on the show and that opening segment I'm telling you Jim this sound in my ear was like 420 decibels How I got through saying what I was going to say without my eardrum imploding It was dumb But I got through it You did see me reach for the ears didn't you I was like I can't take this anymore This is too loud It was my fault though Totally my fault not there for I must have tripped the thing What I lean back into it but I was dying That's why I'm turning this thing down today I got to preserve my hearing very little I have left So listen on a serious note the hearing is still going on up on Capitol Hill Mark milley and defense secretary Lloyd Austin Yes we all know his name even though Joe Biden doesn't Are just giving answers that are so outrageous and hard to process Again you're wondering they have any sense of preserving their dignity anymore They're admitting on one hand Millie's telling people hey listen I had to make a decision to call the Chinese Communist Party this military head basically behind Donald Trump's back and deescalate the situation because I'm a decision maker And then on the other hand when he's asked about the disastrous decision to pull out a Bagram in Afghanistan leaving Americans behind many of whom will likely be killed He says no I'm not a decision maker I'm just the middleman And the irony is for a guy who's supposed to be living by this you know samurai code right Which most of the overwhelming majority of our military people on the ground live by right This code You know the code you know what I'm talking about Millie doesn't seem to want to live by that at all He will give a conflicting answer to any question based on how he thinks it'll make him look And then you got these cable news talking head some of them who just can't seem to get their heads out of there rubs either You're always defending me Oh my guy's president Trump President Trump did this No no President Trump did did we stop saying that I don't know what you're talking about Who's telling you that President Trump did not pull out a bomb and leave our people behind I'm sorry like you don't understand the facts or the history of the situation or if you do you're just ignoring them to make you know to paint some kind of a fairytale here It's not what happened And the whole argument while president Trump made the deal with the Taliban he did make a deal with the Taliban But again he wasn't even locked in by his own deal Because four days after they made the deal the Taliban attacked Afghanistan national army forces And what happened President Trump bombed the hell out of him That's not what Biden did Do you understand Biden's silly argument I can't say this enough Biden's stupid argument which amazingly people on cable still are repeating Is Biden was locked in by Trump's deal which is incredible because Trump wasn't locked in by Trump's deal So I mean how is Biden locked in Just four days later He wouldn't bomb the Taliban After he made his own deal Trump Biden couldn't have done the same If they broke the deal Biden couldn't have brokered a deal where we're getting out of Afghanistan And if you don't let our people get out we are gonna drop Moab on every single piece of ground where any living object lives Biden couldn't do Maybe can you explain to me why he couldn't do that There's your solution right I'm serious What's so hard about this Folks listen I'm not a war hawk here If you listen to my show regularly or my podcast you know that's not the case I've advocated for affirming up the homeland getting out of a lot of our international entanglements and letting the world take over the world's security we're appropriate I made that point many times I'm gonna be lectured by anyone else I know how I feel and I've said it But I'm not stupid either I was in Afghanistan I spent time on Bagram If you would have said to the Taliban we are getting out We are evacuating our people and here's how this is going to go down If you kill one person on the way out we have a fleet a bomber's AC one 30 gunships whatever we are going to find you and we are going to totally destroy We are going to turn that piece of the desert you live in right there into glass If you kill one person it would have been a different situation But that's not what happened Biden wanted a photo op on 9 11 Millie and Austin don't want to admit it He said get out Biden's judgment was terrible He figured the Taliban would just let us leave and let us have an embassy presence He told everyone not to worry and therefore got a bunch of people killed I'm really sorry but that's a fact.

Mark milley became so deranged that he cast himself allegedly as the hero of a seven days in may style fever dream in only he could save the nation from trump trump launching nuclear war with china to stay in office. It's an insane scenario. Left wing equivalent of the most far-fetched cunanan conspiracies. She writes but this is what is claimed in. The woodward cost of book entitled peril show alarmed was the tightly wound. General about what he imagined. Trump might do that. He made secret calls his counterpart in china. Promising to warn them if the president ordered an attack. It's clear that milly or people authorized by him leaked details of his delusional daring due to a number of authors. Because he's proud of his actions. His lack of shane bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation's highest ranking military officer as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the botched withdrawal of troops from afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough.

A secret heads up. We have corroborated that he he did. Have these phone calls with the chinese general. The pot of it. I haven't been able to confirm is that he would give them a coal in advance of an attack which would have would be an extraordinary thing for a military latest or do what does your reporting show about the role of then defense secretary mark asper in all of this as well what i gathered from multiple sources who were involved in this in mid october last year top pentagon officials started to the chinese leaders were consuming really bad intelligence.

Can't i just talking to a nurse This morning who just took the second back seen in she feels terrible. She's not having a wildly bad reaction. Just feels really yucky. And that's really some people feel fine and have no problems but she just feels really yucky. And i said well how yucky she said i feel like i. I don't wanna get out of bed. I can't get out of bed. I'm sure i'll be fine. But then she said. But i feel really yucky because they made me do this and i did not wanna do. I feel disgusted a direct quote. I feel disgusted that this is the country but it's not the country i grew up and she's forty three years old from kansas city. Kansas kansas city missouri. Excuse me and there are a lot of people but she said laura. I'm i'm divorced. I have three children two in college one in high school. I have to support my family. I can't work from home when they condescendingly the other day. The was one of the cabinet members by cabinet members. I can't remember which one so people can work from home. they can. they can home school their kids. If they don't want their kids to be vaccinated. They can work from home if they don't wanna do the vaccine for their company condescending just because some professional elites in the media and wall street and high tech can work from home. I can tell you who's not working from home. The grocery store clerks are the a lot of the pilots who are flying planes. I'm hearing from them as well by the way The flight attendants. They can't work from home. They fly okay now. They're threatening you know. Flying passengers are going to have to have a co vaccine. So look i i. i don't know what to say. I'm not trying to be coy here. I don't know what to say. Because i mean people have to have to support their families but they certainly should she should. They certainly should vote out. Anyone who's pushed these mandates will and that's my other question and lower. You've been phenomenal on this. Which is opposition party. I've been texting some senators. And they say yeah you know. We've been pressuring this person that person. Where is the outrage. Their voters are just forget their voters. Just americans are being crushed by this multi institutional oligarchy of government and private business. I have not seen the backlash from the republican party. That i would want to see for this some lawsuits here and there but nothing even close to what i would have expected. That is not a good sign for the next iteration when they tried to take weapons away from us. They try to vaccinate children. Am i missing something here. Or is it just. I completely agree with you and i am perpetually underwhelmed by the gop. I mean it seems to me that we saw what they were made of not all of them but enough when they went along with that bogus infrastructure deal with the democrats which helped pave the way for the discussion about the three point five trillion. So that they they decided in the middle of inflationary storm that we're facing with twenty nine trillion in debt and counting looks. It'll be three million by the end of the year. We're adding to our our debt or our budget syllabi. Three three There i mean they decide that we got to spend a teeny tiny bit on infrastructure and a bunch of other crap. That what i mean. That senator cassidy from louisiana came on my show and was so condescending to me and i don't care i agree. Bother me totally was icon laughing at me. He's like no going to shut this other spending bill down. This is a really great bill. Laura and i looked at my said. Gosh i've never seen you as animated when you're when you're arguing with the democrat. Why is that. They only get animated like bush when they're going up against conservatives that's never they never really take the fight to the democrats. That's why bush has been mute on everything from benghazi to obamacare to the twelve dead in afghanistan. Well where. Where's bush when we needed him last summer. When the whole country was burning never heard from him then i totally agree and if the base of the country the regular man has no party to represent them the whole country falls apart because we know who represents the permanent government class in the activists class we know who represents the ruling class. But i mean you get these same messages i get. Laurie just talked about one where it's just normal. People that are earning sixty five thousand dollars a year and have two kids and they've really never cared that much about politics but all of a sudden politics is carrying about them and they're like wait a second you know who's who's here to defend me and we're kind of like yeah sorry. We don't have a party for that in our country anymore. now and it's just so sad. It's so tragic. I do think we've had some great governors step up. Obviously santa. this has been great. Yes you know. I think some others have been really strong. Pete ricketts nebraska tate reeves mississippi billy in tennessee christie in south dakota. Greg abbott's been pretty good as well against these mandates. So look i mean a holding onto our freedom in our independence in the face of china and a government. A bipartisan group of government cooperators. It's not gonna be easy but all we can do is continue new to fight. All we can do is continue to vote on. And i just refuse to kind of sit back and say oh Was made there's nothing we can do about this. I mean look. Would we have normal number of people on our side and i think a growing coalition of of diverse people on our side. Who don't like this. Don't trust it and see what's happening to the country but we're not. We're not well-funded. Compared to the all you see look gavin newsom versus larryelder.

Whoever is on the republican ticket wherever republicans running. They're just going to do this thing. This donald trump because the left has nothing positive to offer this point.

I'm reluctant to get my hopes to high. Having been a having. Larry elder but my former boss and i'm a huge fan of his. How where is your former. I was an intern for him. I think that was the key for andrew breitbart hiring is that i interpreted larry. Yeah we were. He was my first talk. Radio love and i know he's your colleague now Which is very cool. I read all his books. And i actually had one in my backpack the ten things. You can't stay in america. I used to walk. I was that kid with the political book in my backpack walking around high school and it worked his arguments. Were just so unbelievable. And he's i think as sharp as he's ever been so i. It is just so tempting to let your mind wander where things could go not just for california but for the whole conservative movement across the country. If something special happens today it's kind of like the nick sabin coaching tree. Were you look at kind of andrew breitbart and you kinda sure from that yes. It's very similar. And and then if you look at larry larry comes from prager and now larry inspired me. Who could got connected to andrew spark candice. Ellen's who's connected to you and all of your stuff. It's just unbelievable. Dave rubin dave rubin was. He says that his interview. With larry elder was chance life.

Yeah he gets the least amount of credit really. Do you know what i mean. And what's amazing is. It'll probably take a few days to count the vote. All of a sudden it could be a few weeks but all of a sudden he could all of a sudden be getting some of the most credit which would be amazing if you got to be the governor of the biggest game and not to mention potential presidential candidate who knows like the mind wanders goes grades right out will.

Fight the You know they would spar in the public but they were all going the same cocktail parties in they were enjoying the vast amounts of wealth. That people really didn't key in on until people like breitbart and peter schweitzer's started pointing out like why is there such huge concentration of wealth in this area and then you start connecting it with everyone. Ultimately is best friends even if they theoretically on both sides of political once trump won once trump actually prove the maga movement is not a joke. It's a dead serious thing.

That's that's the impression i get when you see somebody responding to the ideology du jour as though it were something really serious as though it were. You know something discovered He's responding in a way that betrays his lack of understanding of the deeper issues of things cultural marxism in other words. He's a sitting duck for the people who are trying to divide us and destroy us. And i just wonder how is it that this kind of man could rise to be the chairman of the joint chiefs unfortunately in the current environment. That's the only kind of man who could rise to the top people at the very tout the four stars our politicians their homebase is washington dc. They're big career. Plan is to retire. Become lobbyists for the defense industry Joined the voice of a corporation may be run. The university are. They're very tuned to what senators. Thank you with. Members of congress thing to wipe washington post thinks they have very for national security so the our politicians as you've said happily they have no particular principles on they have no real values. Milly was going along with president trump until the media vermin very credit he would have to in suffer career consequences. He made the switch just in time. The bite mission talked about dumping him but they kept them in. You know that hose reverse speech that he gave about white man. This is very much an effort to keep his job. Amanda losing his job anyway over this but this is a guy who works out for his first and does not care about anything whether it's america the constitution or duty. What he cares about is the next step in his career. Ladder unfortunately was running the military and this is what i discussed in the

Melly still the chairman of the joint chiefs the most senior military individual in the most powerful military in the world who's a cowshed against the constitution and the laws of the republic latest latest revelations that he tried to block a member of the trump administration being nominated to be director of the cia cash. Patel a chief investigator for devon nunez in congress than one of the deputies to the acting secretary of defense will talk about the reactions from cash patel on tucker carlson show but the revelations are of enough of a serious magnitude to have president trump himself make a statement this latest statement from the forty fifth president of the united states. Donald trump despite the fact that the twenty twenty presidential election was rigged and stolen and while numerous people including the outside public was saying we should bring in the military. I never gave it a thought. The writings within these third rate books are fake news and quote unquote general. Milley who mattis wanted to send to europe in order to get rid of him if he said what was reported perhaps he should be impeached. All court marshaled and tried never once did i have a discussion with him about bringing in the military or a quote unquote coup. Which makes any sense. Because i lost total confidence in him and the way he handled himself on our little walk to the church. Remember that church. The walk to sent john's episcopal church a block away from the white house which was firebombed by the antifa and be ellum rioters. He tries to be a tough guy which he is not but he choked beyond belief as soon as a microphone was stopped in front of his face or at the mere sight of the fake news media quite a sight i remember i do his inability to address the press with all those ribbons on his chest. What a strange man mark milley. He makes what that was was rigged and stone election and those facts have come out and are coming out loud and clear because of the rigged election a country will suffer like perhaps a never before with open borders crime and inflation which will eat everyone alive. That's why it's more important than ever to be engaged to be active so that next year and he twenty twenty four weeks trounce these individuals who are truly on american and acting against the strictures of the constitution. That's into a man who was blocked by mark milley in contravention of the us constitution. This is cash patel formerly of the intelligence committee on capitol hill. Also the Deputy secretary of defense for the acting secretary of defense on target college students show play cut. Three cash patel served as chief of staff to the acting. Us secretary of defense under the last administration joined sister castroville. Thanks so much for coming first question. Do you believe this reporting is accurate. Great to be with tucker and based on the reporting in my experiences in the defense department with chairman milli. I believe the reporting to be very accurate. And a very unfortunate and tragic that the highest uniformed officer in the country would controversy responsibility and break possibly break the law because the constitution and the federal statutes only allow the chairman to advise the president military fares. He has no command authority whatsoever because he was not elected by anyone. That's our system works power vest with people. The public chooses to represent them. That's what democracy is. It's not that complicated. So if he's trying to control who the next cia director's prevent you from getting the job as it happens. That's that's so far outside. What we call i guess democratic norms. I send anything about it. You're totally right. And i'm glad you're you're covering it because so few people have look. The statutes are clear he is responsible for advising the president and the secretary of defense on military fares if anyone else in that role contra verdict federal statutes passed by congress they would be as you said remove promptly from that position or he should resign but he wants to create and has created a joint staff operation. That is a pseudo defense department. All on its own which has hijacked the authority of the secretary of defense and the president of the united states and to execute as he sees fit and that is in contravention of the law and he has become the very thing that he is a lobbied against which is one of the biggest political operatives in the united states. defense department. He is now officially the cracking of the swamp. He is now officially the cracking of the swamp. It seems to be a recurring theme of late. The left's gasoline of america. Why here's the perfect example. For four years we were told that this man was a dictator. The donald trump wants to create some kind of banana republic and used the military to stay in power. What's the truth. Did he spy on journalists like obama did. Did he lock up. The sources for those journalists like obama did did he spy did he use the nsa and the cia and the fbi to s- avail the author parthiv presidential campaign. No that's what democrats do the now we have in contravention of what is meant to be the bedrock of our national security establishment which is civilian control of the military. This isn't argentina in the nineteen eighties. This isn't Fidel castro's cuba or franco's spain. The chief of the military isn't a man any uniform in america. The commander in chief ways no uniform. He's a civilian. The military has to take his orders but in contravention of that constitutional order. We have the most senior man in uniform never elected by anybody mark. Milley think that he gets to take the decisions thinking that he gets to obstruct and choose who other members of the cabinet should be. Fat is the definition of a banana republic. That is a threat to the security of all americans irrespective of who you voted for. Perspective of what your personal political proclivities are when a man who has no political legitimacy nanda who according to the national security act of nineteen forty seven according to the us constitution has zero command authority. None the of the junkies has zero command authority. The constitutional mandate the code is clear. He is an advisor on military issues to the incumbent. Commander in chief. Who happens to be the civilian president. Mark milley is a threat to the american republic. And he's clearly not a republican and he clearly does not believe in america. I he is a coward and he's a dangerous coward..
"mark milley" Discussed on WTOP
"Metro area medical centers to 40. This week's mob riot at the capital by supporters of President Trump has stoked major concern by lawmakers and the national security community alike. About whether the president should make any military decisions in his final dozen days in office. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's spoken to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff about preventing the president from starting any military action. Pelosi says in a statement to colleagues. She spoke with General Mark Milley to talk about in her words available precautions for preventing what she calls an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike. Joining us live to talk about all this is w t. O p. National security correspondent J. J. Green JJ. What else if we heard about Pelosi's concerns and the actions that she's taking? Well, you pretty much nailed it in that run up to this life hit here. What you said, was exactly what happened, and that is essentially the gist of it. Pelosi did speak to the nation's top military leader about ensuring that the president cannot launch a nuclear attack. We asked the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff's office about that we got a statement from Colonel Dave Butler. And he said Speaker Pelosi in this is a quote initiated a call with the chairman. He answered her questions regarding the process of nuclear command authority. And for those unfamiliar with this process, it's not a simple process. It's not something where the president simply pushes a button. It is a process and there's several steps that have toe have toe go have to be taken care of, and he's not the only person in this process but still The fact that the speaker is concerned about this is an alarming development. And does Mark Milley have that authority to unilaterally decide not to give him the nuclear codes? That's not something I can answer. I can say this, though there is a process multiple people have to be involved in this and Colonel Chairman Millie is not the only person So it's not something where one person can make a decision on this J. J. This is so so out of our realm here characterized the seriousness of where we are with this kind of concern being exhibited about a sitting president. We've been digging into this for a couple of days now since the rally on Wednesday, and there was an extraordinary Extraordinary amount of concern by people in the National Security Lube and those who used to be in the loop about what might happen if the president simply decided to initiate a strike. On a target if he wanted to, and I could tell you that one of the people that used to run the situation room at the White House said to me that it's very interesting. This is two days ago, remember? That he was the president who no longer has permission to tweet, but he can launch a nuclear strike. That is the level of concern that I think, in many ways generated this activity by the speaker and others..
