"Now to the latest of the war, The White House says the U.S. has evidence now that Iranian troops are directly engaged on the ground in Crimea supporting Russian drone attacks on Ukraine. Spokesman for the National Security Council telling reporters this week that Iran has sent a relatively small number of personnel to Crimea to help Russian troops in launching Iranian made explosive drones. A lot of tough international security officials are meeting right now. This morning, WTO national security correspondent JJ green from Latvia with what he's learned. There's plenty of evidence that Russia's failing in this war and even more evidence that president Vladimir Putin is under a significant amount of pressure. Pressure that may eventually cause him his job. And considering his never given approach, it may cost him a great deal more than that. But one of the big questions and this is just one of many is what happens after him if they are able to get rid of him. And then you have to think about who might be in line. You have the butcher of butcher, one of the military's top generals or former generals, then you have Sergei so Rubik and who wrecked Aleppo another general. These are all potential successors, so there are those who are really concerned about what happens after a Putin regime. It may be worse, not to say that this regime itself doesn't need to be essentially eliminated, but there are these difficult questions that folks are wrestling with about in addition to how to stop this carnage how to help Ukraine how to end this war, protect other countries, but then how to stop this whole idea of Russia needing to dominate or lower it over other countries to stop it from spreading any further. Let's talk about sanctions for a minute. The EU to sanction Iran for supplying those drones to Russia and the U.S., of course, has sanctioned Russia for the war. And while this sanctions have elicited some pain, JJ, it certainly hasn't stopped Russia's onslaught. Is there a way that tougher sanctions could work? Well, I was talking to a couple of people. One of the things that they mentioned is that there really needs to be a concerted effort to fill the loopholes. The EU's has sanctions that it's put down the U.S. has sanctions that it has put down, but they aren't necessarily all on the same page. And so in other words, what we're hearing here is that they're gaps in between these sanctions where Russia and Belarus and other countries that are helping Russia are able to escape. So they need to fill in these areas, these gray areas clog them up basically prevent them from being able to evade these sanctions and these folks really believe that that would do quite a bit to tamp down and perhaps even end this war. Of course, Russia's neighbors are all very tense these days. When we look at this war and all the fallout and the impact, what is the biggest concern for the government and people of Latvia right now? I had an opportunity to speak with Latvia's president. And he said to me, the thing is, getting people to understand that none of these countries that are Russia's neighbors are going to go back to the dark ages. None of them are going to give in. None of them are going to go back to this time where Russia could essentially domineer over these countries. And so what they're concerned about is how far this regime might go to stay on that track. Nuclear weapons or chemical weapons trying to attack borders of its neighboring countries like Lithuania, Estonia, and Latvia. These are the things

Those tools weapons and equipment are having a noticeable effect that Ukrainians have said so themselves. John Kirby is coordinator for strategic communications at the National Security Council. They've really allowed the Ukrainians to strike deep behind Russian lines and disrupt their command and control even further disrupt their logistics and sustainment. Their weapon storage. They've had a profound effect and we're going to continue to make sure. The U.S. message to Russia do the right thing. In the war, mister Putin has it in his power to stop this war today. Tens of thousands of Ukrainians have died in this war. There are many, many children among the victims, which is why ending this war as soon as possible is important. JJ, the why do some thank you, Ukraine, is about to get the upper hand. Well, Sean, Russia's steadily losing military power. It's struggling to find troops, resources, getting those resources to troops. The last month or so, it sort of was in neutral. There were no large scale operations in the Donbass region and elsewhere. They were trying to recover from previous battles. In the meantime, Ukraine's headed in the other direction. They're getting weapons getting support getting money and their troops are highly motivated and top intelligence experts say Russia's military is running out of steam and the evidence seems to be there to back this all up.

Pelosi Is in Taiwan Against the Administration's Wishes

"According to The Washington Post, The White House worked urgently to deescalate tensions with China as House speaker Nancy Pelosi met Wednesday with Taiwanese president Tsai ing Wen and other officials during a high profile visit to the self governing island against the administration's wishes, hoping to head off a geopolitical crisis mid threats and military maneuvers by Beijing. White House officials warned that China is preparing itself for possible aggressive actions in response to Pelosi's visit beyond this week. They reiterated forcefully that the Chinese Communist Party should not use the visit as a pretext to increase military activity in and around the Taiwan strait. But of course, that's exactly what China is going to do. White House spokesman John Kirby, who is the National Security Council, spokesperson, he said, we've seen a number of announcements from the PRC in just the last several hours that are unfortunately right in line with what we had anticipated. China has positioned itself to take further steps. We expect they will continue to react over a longer term horizon. Pelosi said quote we will not abandon our commitment to Taiwan. We are proud of our enduring friendship. So I presented below you with a medal. The order of propitious clouds with special ground cordon for her work promoting U.S. Taiwan ties. Jake Sullivan, Biden's national security adviser spoke with his Chinese counterpart to defend Pelosi's right to visit, but even so, do not think the trip was a good idea, according to The White House, Sullivan expressed concerns about Pelosi's trip to multiple administration officials and asked for suggestions on how to dissuade her from traveling to Taiwan.

John Kirby: Biden Admin Does Not Support Taiwan's Independence

"Yesterday, spokesman John Kirby from the National Security Council told a reporter, we don't support Taiwan's independence. John Kirby cut four guys. She wants to say on this trip is really her prerogative. That's why it was so important for me in my opening comments, Kelly, to make clear what this administration's policy is with respect to the one China principle. When China policy, as well as not wanting to see cross street tensions resolved by any than other than peaceful means and the fact that we don't support Taiwan independence, it was important for me to lay that down right at the outset. That's our policy. That's this administration's approach.

China Views Pelosi's Visit as Opening the Door to Support for Taiwan

"There's a reason that China has increasing the tensions, and that of course is to distract from their failures at home. Xi Jinping is trying to consolidate power. And he is also viewing the United States as a weak horse. And so now is the time for him to ratchet up tensions and try to back the United States off of Taiwan. Kirby continued along these lines, basically begging China not to be angry. It was John Kirby from the National Security Council. Has The White House heard of any specific threats from China when it comes to this visit. There's no reason for the Chinese rhetoric. There's no reason for any actions to be taken. It is not uncommon for congressional leaders to travel to Taiwan. It is very much in keeping with our policy and inconsistent with our support to Taiwan under the Taiwan relations act. We shouldn't be as a country. We shouldn't be intimidated by that rhetoric or those potential actions. This is an important trip for the speaker to be on and we're going to do whatever we can to support her. So I actually agree with John Kirby here, a shocker. I actually agree with the plan by Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan, but you better have the balls to back it up. That is the key in foreign policy. If you are going to talk big, you better have the stones to back it up. And you better make it clear that you are going to back up that sort of action with serious ramifications of God forbid. They were to shoot down a jet with Speaker of the House Pelosi on it, right? She's the third ranking official in the United States, not in terms of the executive branch, but third in line for the presidency and the most powerful person in the House of Representatives, which theoretically is supposed to be the most powerful branch of the United States government, not the executive. According to The Wall Street Journal for Beijing, a visit by Pelosi is seen as a high profile instance of rising U.S. political and military support for Taiwan, contravening Washington's commitments to limit its ties to the island, allowing a Pelosi visit to go ahead without consequences at Chinese foreign affairs at specialist said, but only invite more senior political officials from the U.S. and other countries breaking Beijing's diplomatic blockade of Taiwan, which, by the way, should happen.

"True value of this technology, which has proven so essential to law enforcement can continue to make communities safe, he said. Okay, so there's one side. There's also been clear view, although not by name until recently in the news, relative to Russia and Ukraine. There's no question that facial recognition technology has the potential to be quite useful. It is clear view AIs, facial recognition technology that has been allowing the Ukrainian government to identify both their own citizen casualties of war, obviously in their war with Russia, as well as the Russian soldier casualties who have been left behind by their comrades. Thanks to clearview AI's knowledge of Russian citizens, Ukraine has been able to mount a potentially powerful political counter offensive by identifying these Russian war casualties, notifying their families of their demise and offering to allow them to travel to Ukraine to reclaim their fallen family member. Some 400 Ukrainian investigators are currently using clearview AI's technology to build much more airtight war crimes cases as a consequence. It really helps to know who you're talking about. And certainly Russia is not providing that information. The publication, the record, recently interviewed clearview AI's founder and CEO, this hone Tom fat. Whom I referred to before. And I think that the details reveal by that interview are worth sharing. So I've edited it a bit to bring it up to the level of our listeners, so in the interview, the question is posed, how did clear view come to play such a major role in Ukraine? Hone replies, when the war started, it was really shocking to me. And a lot of members of our team to see, especially the video footage of women and children suffering, and it made me think, how can we help? Originally, I would see photos of captured Russian soldiers, and I realized that with that kind of photo quality, our facial recognition technology could be helpful. So I reached out to a lot of people on our advisory board to ask them, do you know anyone in Ukrainian government? And one person, Lee Wallace, he's on the National Security Council under three presidents. He quickly said yes. We thought that it could be helpful in identifying deceased soldiers and track misinformation..

"Joe, thanks for being here today, looking forward to talking about what you guys are doing, some great things with affordable housing, mostly near military bases. But we do want to hear what you've done in the army up to this point. Yeah, so I was an infantry officer by training commissioned out of ROTC from the University of Virginia, and then was fortunate enough to have a scholarship to go over to Oxford University in the UK. Then my master's and doctorate international relations there. And then came back and said that the infantry deployed with the range range of Afghanistan. Then went to the 101st and then was in Ukraine actually when I got called to my final assignment in the army as I ran our counter China policy on the Pacific on the National Security Council for president Trump the last 18 months of the Trump administration and then it's changed in the administration. I was even though I was still active duty. I was showing the door and so at that time I dropped my packet did a 6 month career skill bridge program and then transitioned out fully in 2021 to the reserves. You mentioned the career skill bridge program. Just real quick. Since you brought it up, what did you think of that program? I've tried to have the retired command start major who's in charge of that program on a couple of times, but he hadn't been able to make the interview, just kind of curious what you thought of that program. Yeah, I loved it in candidly. We have had about ten or 12 career skill bridge program interns with our company. Some of them have been come to workforce full-time afterwards and some of them we've helped them, then they've gone to law school or starting their own company. So I think it's a great program for veterans who are transitioning. And anybody that's interested in learning about real estate and wants to come intern with us, we're happy to have them. Awesome. All right. So tell us a little bit about as you transition out of the army. Did you go right into the idea of patriot family homes or would you go get a day job or what was your transition like?.

Now, less than a month earlier, Mike spann had been one of 8 CIA officers who landed in the Darius souf valley, aboard two Black Hawk helicopters that had flown in from Kashi Khan about K two, a former Soviet air base that Uzbekistan government had given over to the Americans for this post 9 11 mission. So October 17th, 2001, they land at dropped into the unknown. First Americans behind America. So we are barely barely a month out since 9 11. Yeah. First Americans behind them enemy lines. Now there had been a CIA team called jawbreaker that had landed in the pantry of Ali on September 26th, but that was, you know, relatively speaking safe territory controlled by the northern alliance.

It was a guy called Alex Hernandez, who was the deputy chief, who was a sergeant major, gone full career in special forces and then joined the agency and two case officers, JRC, who was the chief who'd worked with the CIA out of Islamabad in the 1980s against the Soviets for the supply and stinger missiles to the mujahideen and David Tyson who you mentioned at the beginning who was with Mike span on November 25th 2001.

And so he's the linguist and the main linguist on the team, although JR, seger also he spoke diary, which was the sort of lingua franca in Afghanistan. But on that day, the team split, there's a big fight, a hundred miles to the east. It expected in Kunduz so the bulk of American forces are there. But the night before 400 Al-Qaeda prisoners had arrived on the eastern edge of mazarin reef to surrender, and it was extremely murky why they were there. They should have been surrendering in Kunduz. And basically, I mean, what I was able to establish almost beyond doubt is that this was a Trojan horse operation. It was a deliberate trap. Yeah, it was a Taliban Al-Qaeda operation to put pretend that for these 400 fighters had surrendered, but in fact they were made up remained armed. They sort of exploited Afghan custom to keep their weapons with them and they were planning an uprising.

Professor Paul Kengor: The Russians Know Death Unlike Any Other People

"Professor Paul kengo welcome back to America first one on one. Well, thank you said it is always good to be with you, sir. Let's start with an article you sent me yesterday from the American spectator that kind of helps us. There's a concept in national security called strategic culture. I learned of it from one of the best of the best, the late great Colin gray, a British American dual national who served in the Reagan administration in the National Security Council. And the theory goes thusly, Paul, that every nation, every elite has a different strategic culture. Belgium thinks differently about war than Vanuatu. The Soviet Union thought differently about war than Americans did. That strategic culture. Will you explain why the concept of death and human suffering or the cost and value of human life is a little bit different in Russia? Yeah, that's exactly what I wrote about in that piece for American spectator yesterday, right? The Russians know death, unlike any other people. And I mean, it depends on how long or how quickly you want to walk through this. And of course, it's no laughing matter. It's quite tragic, but going back the last 100 years, Seb, a little over a hundred years, I guess, but back to World War I, the Russians from 1914 to 1917 lost more men in World War I than any other country. And that, in fact, they didn't even finish the war. They were actually on the winning side, but they pulled out in 1917 after Tsar Nicholas II abdicated in March 1917. They would have been on our side in that war. They lost over 3 million people in that war. Now, to give you a sense of comparison, you know how many people we lost in World War I, about a 110,000.

How China Could Win the Ukrainian War With Rob Spalding

"My former White House colleague former senior director for strategy in the Trump administration in the National Security Council. He is the author of several books. Stealth ward is the first. He's got a brand new one coming out imminently called war without rules. He used to fly stealth bombers. He's a general retired U.S. Army, I prefer to do the British thing. Brigadier rob spaulding. Welcome back to America first. Great to be back. Thank you. So we brought you into discuss the no fly zone concepts, whether it's a good idea, a bad idea, the performance or underperformance of the Russian air force in the last three weeks in Ukraine. But we can't talk about Russia without talking about the other big pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, especially China. Let's continue first the discussion of how they plug in to the Russian efforts, how the sanctions strengthen China's position of Vis-à-vis Russia, and this interesting statement you made that maybe China can't help themselves when it comes to doing something egregious, like invading another country. So first of all, the Russians have asked China for weapons to aid their effort in Ukraine. Prior to that, the Chinese have refused to join sanctions against Russia or even call out, call the invasion of Ukraine and invasion. For the most part, the talking points coming out of China are that the United States created this conflict that actually the United States in the west NATO provoked Putin to invade Ukraine. So when you look at this holistically, you say, well, we have the administration just came out and said some of the administration that the administration is looking at how to drive a wedge between Russia and China and they think that Ukraine might be the opportunity. And I'd read that article and I said, well, does that mean that they think that they can get a closer relationship with the Chinese Communist Party because therefore they'll stop supporting Russia and it just tells you how fundamentally disconnected Washington D.C. is from how Russia and China

the Atlantic Ocean near Miami Beach I'm Brad Stevens You're listening to balance and power with David Weston on Bloomberg radio Still to come this hour taking another look at the GameStop frenzy from a year ago with professor Joshua mitts of the Columbia law school But first truckers in Canada have disrupted the capital of Ottawa and stopped goods and people from crossing the border with the United States Prime minister Justin Trudeau exercised emergency powers to bring an end to the blockades Occupying streets harassing people breaking the law this is not a peaceful protest This is about keeping Canadians safe protecting people's jobs And restoring confidence in our institutions For his view on what's going on in Ottawa and the border I talked to former U.S. ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman Canada is one of our very best Friends It's our number one trading partner our next door neighbor and they have been there for us through thinking every time we've been in trouble and wherever we have gone around the world they've been at our side And they have never engaged in politics in the U.S. by political party or encouraging anything against the U.S. government even during the most challenging times with some challenging presidents that we've had In vice versa the U.S. doesn't engage itself in how Canada operates domestically It's in our best interest that Canada is stable is prosperous and a thriving democracy And yet what has happened is that a group of truckers who have perhaps legitimate crops with regard to vaccines domestically have engaged in a protest which is a Canadian issue have seen members of Congress the Senate and some media outlets in the United States encouraging disruptive destabilizing activities against the government of our best friend and neighbor Regardless of how we feel it's a line that should never be crossed Is this a spontaneous uprising of the truckers Are there other people involved in all this Mister ambassador estimation It initially started with this group of truckers so that everybody has an understanding Canada has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world And the trucking community is around 90% vaccinated So it's a small minority of the trucking population But what ended up happening is that a lot of people once this protest got underway Got encouraged to join in And so they really weren't truckers as this thing blossomed in Ottawa and at the ambassador bridge in coots crossing All of these weren't just truckers anymore And in some cases they were more radicalized people coming in at the encouragement again and proposed funding by many Americans in the United States who have more extreme views against the prime minister And I think it was started primarily when president Trump came out and used such disparaging language at the beginning of this against the prime minister and in support of the truckers and then it was a pile of them So politically what is the prime minister's position right now How do people in Canada feel about this Do they think he's overreached So according to polling throughout the country that he has the support of around 70% of the population There are about a third of the population in polling that do have some support even though they may also be vaccinated some support for the right for protesting And while I think Canadians are just getting used to this emergency powers act they don't know exactly how it's going to be implemented And that's just underway From an American perspective our top concern right now is and has been the free flow of goods across our shared border given our largest trading partner in the world especially in the Midwest where a lot of that trade goes over the ambassador bridge about a third of our merchandise trade which feeds into the ability to produce automobiles on both sides of the border Thanks to former U.S. ambassador to Canada Bruce Heyman Just over a year ago now markets were rocked by the meme stock frenzy with GameStop leading the way in a dramatic shoot up The SEC conducted an investigation into whether there was any wrongdoing and last October issued a report concluded that short selling whether coordinated or not played little part in the GameStop phenomenon But now a group of scholars has released a study taking issue with the SEC conclusions I talked to one of those authors professor Joshua mitts of Columbia law school Today concluded that there was either a short squeeze nor gamma squeeze What is a short squeeze Well that's when short sellers faced with the prospect of increasing price increasing stock price are forced to cover their short position by buying shares The SEC concluded there was no short squeeze price increase was not driven by short sellers covering their positions Similarly on the option side again squeeze occurs when derivatives dealers are forced to hedge by buying stock which in turn pushes the price up The SEC.

Leaked Document Reveals Biden’s Afghan Failures

"Joe Biden has now said he is sending 3000 troops to the Ukrainian region or Eastern Europe to try and defray Vladimir Putin. Leaf documents reveal Biden's Afghan failures. From Jonathan Swan from axios dot com. Hours before the Taliban seized control of Kabul, on August 15th, 2021, senior Biden administration officials were still discussing and assigning basic actions involved in mass civilian evacuation. So I'm going to connect what's happening in Eastern Europe right now with the Afghanistan debacle. Outsiders were frustrated and suspicious the administration was having plenty of meetings, but was stuck in bureaucratic inertia and lacked urgency into the last minute. While the world immediately, peppers the internal documents, it's clear officials were still scrambling to finalize their plans. Now first of all, we only have these inference information because someone is leaking on Biden. Right here in my hands streaming on rumble dot com not on YouTube at standing in solidarity with Dan bongino. BLE dot com streaming on rumble this week. The National Security Council, someone is leaking. These internal documents, we have all of them right here. And basically, it shows that the Biden regime had no idea what they were doing when it came to trying to withdraw from Afghanistan. We knew that, obviously, with the 13 dead marines and the Taliban taking over the country at rapid space for example, they just decided they needed to notify local Afghan staff to quote to begin to register their interest in the relocation to the United States. And they were still determining which countries could serve as transit points for evacuees. So someone in the Department of Defense wants to try to set the record straight when it comes to the Biden bureaucratic nonsense that led to this.

How Can Ukraine Prevent a Russia Invasion?

"Andrew peak based on your time as director of Europe at the National Security Council, is there any chance that Ukraine can do to Putin's invasion if it occurs, what Finland did to Stalin's in the winter war in 1939 and 40. In other words, hit them much harder than they're expecting. Gosh, you know, Hugh, I served alongside finished troops in Afghanistan. I have to tell you they have an incredibly impressive martial tradition. To that then they traded a little bit out of necessity after the Second World War for more neutral status. I think the situations are very different. Unfortunately, the winter weather that is coming in Ukraine from say mid January to early March actually favors the Russians with their greater mobility and their greater armor vehicles than it does the Ukrainians whereas back in the back in the winter war and the continuation war at which you were alluding to the mobility was actually with the Finns the famous ski troops in the blizzards that were in the great battle of sula montes.

"That's where you get to hear a lot more from Dr Fauci again. You're listening to President Biden give a covert update on his response plan. This is Ko Phi and K. O S T h D to Los Angeles. They work free from political interference. They make decisions strictly based on science and health care alone signs and health alone, Not with the political consequences are Vice President Harrison. I and our entire administration will always be honest and transparent with you about both of good news and the bad. We will level with you. When we make a mistake. Straight up. Say what happened? And I said at the outset, the honest truth is, we're still in a dark winner of this pandemic. It's going to get worse before it gets better. It's going to take many months to get where we need to be. Progress from our plan will take time to measure as people getting infected today. They don't show up case counts for weeks, and those who perish from this disease die weeks after their exposure. Despite the best intentions were gonna face setbacks, which I will always explain to you. But I also but also know we can do this if we come together. That's why Ultimately our plan is based on unity and all of us acting as one nation. Requires families. Neighbors looking out for one another. Healthcare providers and businesses, civic and religious and civil rights organizations and unions, all relying together on a common purpose. With urgency and purpose and resolve. Requires reasserting our global leadership, which is why I took in action yesterday for the United States to rejoin the World Health Organization. To reestablish our global pandemic office in the National Security Council. Requires Congress coming together to provide the necessary funding in the covert relief package and the American rescue plan that I will soon be sending to the Congress. No, these bold practical steps will not come cheaply. Failing to do so will cost us so much more dearly. I look forward to working with members of both parties in the Congress. We're in a national emergency. This time we treat it like one together the national plan. As the United States of America. As I said yesterday, my inaugural address There are moments in history when Maura's asked of a particular generation more baskets as Americans and other times We are that moment now. She's going to measure whether we're up to the task. I believe we are. American people have given so much already. But I believe they're ready to set big goals and pursue them with courage, conviction and honesty. Because the health of the nation is literally at stake. It's not hyperbole. I'm convinced the American people already as well to spare no effort. No expense to get this time. What could be more important. More people we vaccinate. The faster we do it. The sooner we can put this pandemic behind us. The sooner we could build our economy back and build it back better. Get back to our lives into our loved ones. We could do this. We could do this that we stand together. This fellow Americans as the United and as the United States of America. God bless those lost souls in this pandemic and their families all they left behind. My God bless all of you on the front lines would define the best of who we are as Americans. Thank you very much. I'm gonna go over this desk and sign these executive actions but again. This is the plan. This is the plan. Go online and get it. I know it's a lot of heavy reading. But it's all laid out in stark detail here. Thank you. All right there. You have it. President Biden. They're talking about his plan to attack the cove. It talking about 100 days of mask wearing for the country, talking about a plan to reopen schools. We knew all of this was coming. Which holds you at the top of the show that this was his plan. He's got a serious of executive actions that are already printed out and laid out in the desk in front of him. And that is that. Vice president behind him. I can't tell who that's about, you know, on the others. Oh, and then he found she looks nothing like Kamila Harris. I just was worried about because inside. I know what you're saying. I looked at the screen. There was just two dudes. No, there's there's somebody to is. Is right, our left standing and maroon dress. What, anyway? That's not Fauci. I believe that's the vice president looking over his shoulder, and Anthony Fauci is in the room as well. And I think other people will take to the podium and speak a little bit later. But these syriza of executive actions that he's going to sign or again like you said, not surprises. We knew a lot of this was coming, but this was his first real chance to to address the country on any real topic. Outside of the celebration from from yesterday in the normal ceremonies that we see in the inauguration. Hey, what else is going on? Time for what's happening. Perhaps I knew well, there was a fire. We talked a lot about vaccines over the course of these last 45 minutes an hour, so there was a huge fire that broke out. The world's largest vaccine manufacturer. It's called the Serum Institute of India and this huge complex there. There were smoke billowing out of one of the buildings in this massive complex in the city of Oh, Cooney Hoon. Huh?
