"saigon" Discussed on WBUR
"Old Saigon. So this began to destroy it change their identity cards, leaving their incriminating uniforms behind the North Vietnamese or very conscious of the eyes of the world on them in the days after the fall of Saigon. There were no immediate Reprisals Who once world attention had moved on. The reckoning came, we were transported to what was called free education came and imprisoned there. Thousands of men in cramped, dirty conditions. So many died from the lack of food, medicine and clean water. We undertook hard labor, felling trees in jungles and clearing bamboo forest. We will order to clear land device with nothing but our hands. Most of all both kangaroo courts preceding a public execution and having to pick up the human remains after to try to give the man some dignity in death. For three years. Dr. Tran was the prisoner move between camps. My biggest fear was never seen my family again of my tune doesn't having no memory of me not knowing what my face looks like, or what my voice sounds like. When I was eventually released and returned home, I look like a skeleton. My youngest daughter was born the day the South fell, did not recognize me and ran away screaming. But my Anders, she recognized me despite there being only three when I was taken away and she clung to my knees. And at that moment, I felt like my heart would burst. 1978.

How Does the Fall of Kabul Compare to the Fall of Saigon?
"Seen numerous exigencies disasters. Emergencies affecting america's national security establishment. Let's start with a simple can palace and katie mcfarland. Follow this lady right now on twitter at real. Kt the lettuce. Kt mcfarland Is it Unwise is it too simplistic to compare the fall of kabul under biden to the fall of saigon. Give us your take on. That comparison was actually in the white house situation room. The night of the fall saigon. I was That was in april. Nineteen seventy five and america had fought and at least fought to a standstill the vietnam war and similarly to today. We were surrounded by North vietnamese viet cong communist forces and were forced to evacuate Our our forces along with any north and south east amis allies. Who had helped us for the vietnam war and it was a humiliating time for america not only had lost a war but we were forced to evacuate and it was a low point of american foreign policy and i remember being in the situation room where i was receiving case. They were called cables at the time. You'd probably call an e mails text messages today. From the van ambassador to the american ambassador to vietnam where he was saying we. We just need fewer hours. We have just another planeload or to evacuate and all the american. All the american military we later found out that what they were doing was trying to evacuate as many as possible of the vietnamese allies that it helped us So it was a low point in american foreign policy and because it showed to the world the face. Agape world was america's incompetent america Can't fight wars and win them. It's the end of time. America's days are done and it fed into the notion that at that time the soviet union was gonna replace america's the world's dominant power and so surely united states turn that around with especially with the election in nineteen eighty of ronald reagan where he rebuilt the american military. He stood up for the united states again. He reinstated american values. He fixed the american economy and within a decade. After that we had one war so we completely reversed that vietnam syndrome and it only took us. Well it took us maybe ten or fifteen years to do
Sen. Cotton Responds to News of Saudi Arabia and Iran Military Coalition
"The Jerusalem Post this is breaking Saudi Arabia has signed some kind of joint military cooperation agreement, which with Russia And Iran and Russia. Uh, are are going to be involved soon in a, uh Joint military exercises, and this is just the beginning. I think I even think in our own hemisphere south of the border of some of these Communist regime stick around when some of the others I think we're going to see this spread. So much of what we've done under both parties over more than half a century. Um, to establish our Our strength. Has just thought that it's so much of it is just melted away. I'd be curious of your of your opinion. I'm afraid you're right, Mark. You know what's happening now It's just a continuation of what happened in the Obama Biden there now that it's the Biden era, Russia had been a peripheral player in Middle East if a player at all since 1973 when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger help eject them from Middle East, and Obama basically invited invited him back in after the Syrian Red Line fiasco when he refused to enforce his own red line. And now you've got countries like Saudi Arabia, longstanding partner of the United States, who see what's happened with Joe Biden's bug out in Afghanistan were abandoning not just Afghans who helped us but even our own citizens, and they think they need to start cutting side deals to protect their own interests. You know, some people compared what's happened over the last week in Afghanistan. Having decided on in 1975. And remember what happened. Saigon in 1975 small foretaste of what Lay ahead, Laos and Cambodia fell almost immediately. You had the horrors of Paul Pot, then become a rouge. Cuba is sending shock troops all over the All over Latin America and Africa as well. Russia invaded Afghanistan. Um, so for years that reverberated. I'm afraid that Joe Biden's impotence and incompetence in Afghanistan will reverberate for years to come
Colonel Richard Kemp on Why Afghanistan Is the Biggest Foreign Policy Disaster
"I'd like to begin by saying I've served alongside. I fought alongside U. S forces in different places in the world. Have the greatest admiration and respect. For the American Armed forces and anything I might say any criticism I might make In relation to Afghanistan is not a criticism of the U. S forces. I think this what we're seeing and what we've seen in the last few days. Is It's the greatest foreign policy disaster that I have seen in my lifetime of any nature from any Western country and I would go so far as to say. This is The most disastrous foreign policy event since at least the second World War for the United States of America. It is has unbelievable strategic consequences well beyond Afghanistan itself. And I think you know, people often compare. Vietnam and Saigon in 1975 to the things they're saying on the television now. I think it is worse than that, And it's very different to that. But it did take The American Armed forces. 15 years to recover from Saigon. It took them until the Gulf War in 1991. That's the scale of the disaster they faced and 75. I think it's as I say worse. One of the reasons it's worse is because in Saigon And in Vietnam. The North Vietnamese were not Trying to attack or destroy the United States of America. They were very much focused on that country on Vietnam. And so when the U. S left it left a failed strategy have failed war in effect for a number of reasons, but it did not leave a war that it should have still been fighting.

"Us as my friend. Dr keith rose keith. welcome back thanks brother. You are jack-of-all-trades kind of a swiss army knife. Europe's you serve in afghanistan. I i worked in afghanistan. i've been a part of the intelligence community. So i worked there. For a little bit over a decade vacuums. So you've been there for over ten years in and out about twelve years in between there and pakistan so and so you have a great understanding of that region and the complexities and i consider to be an expert and in the intelligence community you know even more than than most so what we did a lot of humanitarian work to ironically enough. We helped a lot of people and we help build a medical infrastructure which is so credit i only say this just to establish our criteria understanding get into all of this very important stuff so people don't say who is this guy but you really know what's going on on the ground keith. On a scale of saigon to a wrong how bad is it right now. In in kabul saigon to iran we're actually establishing a new low. I wouldn't even put it on the the scales with saigon to iran. Each had their own problems. But what we have now is something that even who i consider some of the sharpest minds in the intelligence services and even in the military retired folks. No one saw this coming. This is an enforced era of galactic. Potions right now. I mean it could turn into one of the greatest humanitarian crisis in the history of not only our country but the
Thousands Flee Another Lost American War
"Years after countless deaths and $2 trillion in spending, Afghanistan is back in the hands of the Taliban. Many people are remembering the fall of Saigon in 1975, but this week's rapid fall of Kabul has brought its own unforgettable images now seared into our memories. Okay. There was this girl. Yeah, you know that thousands of Afghans flooding into the Kabul airport desperate to flee. Gut wrenching scenes of crowds of people running alongside and clinging onto an American military plane as he gathered speed across the runway and that video that went viral of bodies falling off the plane and plummeting through the air seconds after it took off. This is how it ended. Mission in Afghanistan was never supposed to been nation building. It was never supposed to be created. A unified centralized democracy are only vital national interest in Afghanistan remains today. What has always been Preventing and a terrorist attack on American homeland. But when President George W. Bush ordered the invasion of Afghanistan, where the Taliban had been harboring Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda had a very different vision about the U. S mission in America, not only fights for our security But we fight for the values we hold dear. We strongly reject The Taliban way. We strongly reject their brutality toward women and Children. He promised the US would defeat the Taliban and help rebuild a stable and peaceful country. American or allies. What? We'll do our part in the rebuilding of Afghanistan. We learned our lessons from the past. We will not leave until the mission. It's complete. Some Afghans took that promise to heart.
Biden on Vacation, Harris M.I.A. While Americans Left Behind in Afghanistan
"Ninety nine. What what what. You're saying though i'm hearing in there that you are prepared to leave people behind. We're doing everything we can to get as many people out who wants to get out before the august thirty first deadline that is his sole focus of the president of the united states and his team. Right now prepared to leave people behind and cut one hundred five. An american teacher who's trapped in afghanistan said they are not letting anyone in we are in huge danger and we need help. Joe biden is on vacation and camera. Harris is missing in action and by the way the biden regime. They are feeling the heat. They realized that they have iran and saigon combined two one oh man the cockiness that they've been operating with the last couple months. But what if. I told you that leaving americans behind like we're seeing in one oh five. It's what they've been doing since they took. The oath of office says the regime took over. That's been their mission statement. They've left americans behind on the southern border. Left americans behind with economic policy deserting or casting aside americans has been the prime objective of joe biden. This is just another chapter in the book of. We don't care about you. Written by the biden regime cut one. Oh five we received this audio message from trapped teacher a us permanent residents who says even with the proper paperwork. He couldn't get through for his safety. We're not naming him. It is insane. There are people holding their american passports. There are people that work with the americans and they're not letting anyone in we are in huge danger and we need help and with tens of thousands of americans and afghans who've helped the us desperate to get proper paperwork can't even get him.
Three Questions Joe Biden Needs to Answer
"You're telling me the most powerful army on Planet Earth had no better evacuation plan for Afghanistan than to emulate Saigon. Let's do what we did there like that worked out so well, that was your best option. Why did we abandoned Bagrham? Question number one. There has been no legitimate answer. Millie is spinning. And giving nonsense answers. Well, we couldn't do it. Why couldn't we do it? Explain why exactly, we couldn't do that. Yeah. Second Why did the Biden team dismantle this crisis Response team Donald Trump had proposed. And was in the process of funding and building up that was purposefully instituted to deal with crises like this overseas on foreign soil. When we have to implement these NEOS, these non combatant evacuation orders getting out non military personnel. The Trump team had a plan for this. Gosh, what I wouldn't do for me Tweets again, Please, let's go back to mean tweets. Can we do that? I'll take me tweets over controlled inflation. Growing economy, relative recovery from this pandemic, economically and and and a foreign policy where at least we know where we stand. And released. At least we know we're not going to engage in a leave every man behind approach like Obama and Biden did. You dismantle the crisis Response team just weeks before the fall of Kabul in Afghanistan. As a caller alleged on my show on Tuesday it was done to avoid having a response team. Well, that doesn't make sense, then makes perfect sense. State Department doesn't want to response team laying around. If they think Kabul is going to fall because then they'll have to deploy it and they don't want to deploy it. So if they don't want to deploy it, why not just abandon
This Is Worse Than the Iranian Hostage Crisis of 1979
"Cover of today's new york post here in new york city bygones. Saigon has become biden's tehran. this is worse than the iranian hostage crisis of one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. I said this yesterday but it's absolutely verifiably. True we have up to. There are up to eighty thousand being held hostage by taliban checkpoints in four enforcers from the taliban are blocking americans and their allies from reaching the airport. We're desperate people are trying to literally scale the walls as the new york post describes it. This is brewing hostage crisis. Worse than nineteen seventy nine and the iran hostage crisis. Thousands are being held hostage in afghanistan and we got a president who barely knows. It seems where he is.
How Does Afghanistan Compare to Benghazi or Vietnam?
"Beirut, 83 when 241 of my fellow Marines and sailors were killed by a suicide bomber And the big thing back then, is once the dust settled. Ronald Reagan the honourable person he was Took full responsibility as he did like whatever we got in the White House today, uh, is blaming everybody but himself. So, But here's the question I got for you, sir. Is this debacle in Afghanistan? Uh, bring to mind the Benghazi fiasco a decade ago when Biden was a key player, then failed to respond in a timely manner, resulting in the death of our ambassador. Three other Americans, except now, in a much larger scale. We once again have Biden and get another and and another inept administration. You know, people, there's a lot of parallels that can be made. There is no question of people try to make them like with South Vietnam. And I talked earlier today with a friend of mine. He's been on the air. He was the commander of British forces in Afghanistan for a period of time. Retired British colonel Richard Kemp. Any as an example. People been saying this is Saigon, He said. Let me tell you the difference. He said. When we Americans left Vietnam the way we left Vietnam, which was also horrible. Took us many years to build our Reputation back. But the Communists in Vietnam weren't interested in conquering anybody. They weren't even interested in attacking the continental United States. He's a brilliant man, he said. In Afghanistan, it's different. It's totally different. The reason we were in Afghanistan is because they attacked us in the United States because they were communists or anything else. So the parallels can only go so far.
The International Ramifications of the U.S. Withdrawal From Afghanistan
"Black In in that case in you just said that we cannot compare The events of the last few days either to saigon. Oh even to. Jimmy carter as somebody who is a. Pm of the of the british opera house is somebody who is a canadian as well. What are the international ramifications of what we have just seen when you'll blaming our allies our partners in the country prior administrations went already. The media organs of the chinese communist state are saying quote unquote headlines. Bidoon will surrender taiwan. Next how how can send a you. As an observer of presidential politics that there will be very very serious ramifications. I'm very concerned. And i think the parallel there is with the bay of pigs President kennedy was fearful of fiasco at the bay of pigs few months after he was inaugurated in nineteen sixty one would embolden the soviet union. That's precisely what happened. And they you know they. We now know that the head short range. Nuclear missiles already deployed on the launcher before it was discovered by. Us intelligence that four hundred thousand two old divisions a soviet armed forces in cuba in-country and they've been there for some months before american intelligence defected. This right under the nose. Eight minutes away in a jet aircraft from for miami and and And then he was afraid that it would embolden the russian su something impetuous which is what happened. He and we of course will settled very. I would say we didn't quite statesmanlike manner but but that sort of thing does encourage those who have an appetite to be aggressive. And if they think they're facing a vacuum or facing a completely irresolute opponent than it is extremely dangerous. And i mean you know. We got all kinds of historical parallels for this as hitler himself said after he saw chamberlain and della at munich. He thought he could do anything he
RIP to America's Prestige
"Walter. Russell made in the wall. Street journal begins his column. You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose this honor and you will have war. Winston churchill's words to neville chamberlain following the munich agreement echo grimly across washington. This week as the by administration reckons with the consequences of the worst handled foreign policy crisis since the bay of pigs and the most devastating blow to american prestige. Since the fall of saigon american prestige is very important not for ego reasons but because american prestige is the guardian of liberty in the world. Joe biden believe three things about afghanistan. I that he could stage dignified an orderly withdrawal from america's longest war. By the way you know we had. I believe twenty five hundred soldiers. We had no no not one soldier died then one american military person this past year. What what was the necessity of leaving. Everything that is happening is was completely predicted predictable. I predicted it. That's in print. And i'm i'm not a prophet. I'm just not a leftist
'Worse Than the Fall of Saigon': Two Democratic Presidencies Oversee to Chaotic Withdrawals From War
"I'm sure you saw those pictures. Eric of the taliban driving around in. Us home vs like parading around in our gear. We didn't even bring. We didn't even take all of our gear back. I mean this is how bad this is. We left them. Billions of dollars of military equipment. some of the some of the The worst terrorist in the world are now leading government and we have no presence there. I mean in my estimation this is way worse than the false idar. It's interesting isn't it. I mean when you when you think about how many people lost their lives in vietnam and the way we left that and by the way. I want to be clear when we left saigon. Okay that nightmare image. That left people to the killing fields of the crime rouge that was a democratic congress. They decided because nixon had resigned. Ford was in. They had control of congress. They chose the democrats to do this. I wanna be really clear that what happened. Then which was utter evil folks if you if you've seen the movie the killing fields if you know about what happened. It is a nightmare. It is evil unleashed atheist marxism evil Butchering of human beings That was the democrats made a cold blooded decision. Of course now we have biden. Who's a democrat. He made what looks like a really cold blooded decision just to say. Well we're leaving. And that's the way the cookie crumbles know when you talk about military equipment being left behind We talk about all the people being left behind. I just i. I'm just trying to process how it's possible that people whose job it is to deal with this bungled it like this. I mean i. It's it's wild and what's craziest. all of the intel. it's like they basically the him in the vice president win against all of the intelligence all of the agencies. Were saying that this was going to happen. And they didn't listen to anybody and their their arrogance and their inability to learn from top military leaders. Anybody will tell you man that's been spent any amount of time over there. I was only there for you know a few weeks. You know but but leaders in generals that have been there for decades. They were saying the same thing. We cannot withdraw in this manner and they just refuse to listen. And i'm telling you this is why in twenty twenty two. I mean we. We need to step it up. As the church in

Yeah it It's it's the kind of thing it's too much but you know when when you look back you know people through roxette from that. He was intelligent competent and a fighter and he made his own money. Biden is just a politician. We tried to move other people's money around. You wonder play politics with nine. Eleven obviously has bookings over his head but the bigger culprit that set all this up was the press that lacked integrity did nothing but lie for four years to help create this possibility. It's just their hubris and their allies and now because this looks so bad they're trying to cover there. But i just hope you know like you. Said trump violence got to go. You're right obviously. But i hope carmela is watching closely and within the context of the democrats in power now. She listens to her more moderate voices so she doesn't screw up so then she might have remote chance of getting elected but i don't think she'll be able to do it off. I don't think she will be. And you know by the way She rushed out an announced the other day that she was the last person in the room with biden and agreed with him he needed to do with this withdrawal. She tried to take credit for this week. And is now going into the witness protection program. I guess Because she she now fingerprints on it after. She claimed she was one of the people who convinced him to do it. This i mean this is just i just got a a press release from nebraska. All you need to know is the subject line worse then. Saigon worse than saigon and cnn right now is running on. Repeat this clip of joe biden corruption among the afghanistan government to this mission fail in their first of all.

They capitalize on the success of the previous administrations. And they try to correct mistakes. And what we're doing right now. We're sweeping everything under the rug and we're starting to mantle. This successes such as energy independence. No war in the middle east. Great great call we that hard break or at least we gotta get.
Biden Grapples With the Ghosts of Saigon
"Obviously today's top stories afghanistan and the overrunning of the country by the taliban. This probably makes many of us think which did to me. Right away of south at phnom. Where do you remember that desperate vietnamese. We're trying to fleet at the last helicopter leaving from saigon. I can still see that. It's heartbreaking and we never seem to learn our lesson and resident biden. it's i call now. Was there all those many years ago to. I agree with dennis that we couldn't afford to leave. And you can let me know what you think. One eight seven seven six. We should've kept some troops there to make sure this disaster did not happen again but a disaster it is for those who gave their lives and their service all these many years. Actually i shouldn't say years many years for the afghanistan citizens who will be subject to the rule in retribution. No doubt of these monsters to those who sided with us in any way who will meet very uncertain. Fates how would you like to be an afghanistan noun they hunt you down and search for you because of your involvement supporting the united states to the reputation of our country even of the weapons. Who lost what i read. Did you see that sean. There are more. I helicopters that they captured equipment than tons of countries. Even half. this is an utter failure and also sends a message of lack of american will and leadership. It's an unmitigated disaster. That could have been averted. President trump made it clear that he would never have tolerated the taliban taking over in this manner he would've ordered. I believe this for sure he would avoid the full power of our military to make sure we didn't flee from afghanistan with the taliban threatening our troops. where was the planning. We're was the orderly transition

And three you don't want none of that. You're gonna be glad you one hundred sixty still cold is so there was a back and forth Through social media between trump and biden over the weekend and has As carefully he's made this great graphics I don't know if you wanna do the slide. Show here rob. But but but trump of course calls out biden and then you have the wanna play those watches here every go so So here's here's donald trump's statement at ju begging gets wrong every time on foreign policy and many other issues. Everyone knew he couldn't handle the pressure. Even obama's secretary of defense robert gates said as much. And i mean that everyone knows. He ran out of afghanistan instead of following the plan our administration for. That's what he says. I right now did. He says he followed the plan. Give it to him by his predecessor really followed a plan given to who by trump. You changed everything. Yeah but on afghanistan. I thought wow yeah land. Let's do that. One trump got up a plan that protected our people and our property and ensured. The taliban would never dream of taking our. We'd never dream of it. Okay never dream of taking our embassy or providing a base for new attacks. I believe that's true. Yeah i do want well. Somebody say it's the taliban was marching toward. Kabul and trump were president. He would probably carpet bomb. The kabui and i completely. Yeah i really big city to. We didn't fire a shot. We didn't drop a bomb so it's is it incredible that they had three hundred thousand troops and an air force. Where was that air force. I mean i don't maybe. There has been footage of the air force in dropping bombs on taliban. But i haven't seen any of it. I've seen no evidence that the fight at all no crazy. It's just incredible so anyway. That's the back and forth as they're more there was quite a bit more. But it's okay. It's it's it's not just trump calling out joe biden. Cnn he's lost in in over the weekend. This clip show you. What secretary of state antony blinken told both cnn and abc this morning. President biden is intent on avoiding saigon moment. That's a reference of course to the hasty and humiliating evacuation from vietnam his troop surge to airlift americans out of afghantistan. Aren't we already in the midst of aside gone moment. No we're not remember This is not saigon. We went to afghanistan twenty years ago with one mission and that mission was to deal with the folks who attacked us on nine eleven. Isn't that exactly what we're seeing now. I mean even the images are evocative of what happened in vietnam. Let's take a step back. This is manifestly not saigon these pictures on the left. You see that famous picture or the helicopter embassy inside gone on another helicopter another. Us embassy but that is this morning in kabul. Joe biden is sitting camp. Gave it right now. The must feel lillian watching these images on tv to be on. This looks like a disaster. We're seeing these pictures right now. The airport this is biden's boondoggle. This is a foreign policy disaster in the making and political ramifications. This has been a political disaster. And it's gonna be a dark stain. The annals of us foreign policy This is not saigon. They're not spelled the same way at all. Afghanistan's spelled a. f. g. age have the age in particularly it's stupid saigon clearly s. a. i. g. o. n. is manifestly not saigon. And he's right about that he's right saigon's a completely different place wasn't saigon. That was already overrun. Why would they do it again. Goodness and that was cnn. Calling what is the deal because when he went to camp david on what was it. Friday said no public events to wednesday. No nothing. I'm not doing anything. I don't know what's happening right now. I don't know if they are literally doing a lobotomy. On the guy. And i don't know what's going on but the only thing that they have released is is a photo from inside like the situation ruining camp david or whatever right he's you know he's sitting there and he's talking to all of his Crew there on the screen kamla and there's so much wrong with that photo. Jeff what was the thing with the time zones or something that they had the the clocks on the wall locks on the walls that are wrong and they're being called out for those clocks be wrong. There's the clocks on the walls show that There's a three hour time difference between london and moscow. Well really right now. Like moscow doesn't have time changes but london actually does but there's a two hour time difference between london and moscow now so d- two hours difference between london moscow right now okay but in the picture even three three hours.

When the founders of the united states wrote the constitution the first thing they did was make sacred the rights of the individual to share their ideas without limitation government.

Afghanistan Conflict: As Kabul Falls, Biden Backlash Grows
"Departure of the U. S from Afghanistan has some making comparisons to the fall of Saigon in Vietnam back in 1975, as thousands are desperately trying to get on air lifts out of the country, hearing reports of U. S. C. 17 aircraft carrying hundreds of people These planes are meant for just around 100 paratroopers. They're fitting as many U. S personnel and US allies in these planes as possible, trying to very quickly get people out of harm's way. There are also reports of sporadic gun Fire around the airfield that in some cases will temporarily slowed down how many planes are able to take off? But this process will continue. We understand. Additionally, across Kabul there are Taliban fighters that have taken over key government buildings, including the presidential palace. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was inside before he fled the country for a jinxed reporting The Taliban moved in quickly this weekend took control of key strategic locations with relative ease. Leading to blame the Biden administration for underestimating the Taliban forces.

"Definitely check out ground news y'all one of the things that I found useful in their website in their APP is that it shows you how outlets across the political spectrum are on the same story and it enables you to see when media outlets are ignoring certain stories that might oppose the narrative that they're pushing. So check it out so. Excuse me I'm sorry I have serious like congestion issues because my house was full of smoke your in a wildfire in how to what you're in a wildfire and the my friend I love my friend I don I don't make fun of her and she was giving me great advice she's got she doesn't have an oxygen tank she has an air purifier but the replacement filters are four hundred dollars. This thing like I'm not buying this air filter, but it's really unhealthy, and now that I know that we live in complete path accuracy who hates us I, it doesn't surprise me at all I. Mean I I think that masks bad for you too. But anyway, what she did was. She. She. In one of her books in her latest book, she has a somebody who commits crimes a murderer whatever when he goes out to do the crimes, he dresses as a female that's his disguise, which I always thought about assange and Edward Snowden and even the Santa Barbara shooter. I think all those people just for some reason I. Get that vibe from them. And that in itself was considered transphobic plus according to acts of the. History of the TRANSPHOBIC vibe coming off of her. That was the news report on Fox was that the general transphobia. There's news about this plotline. That isn't on its face really transphobic. Just. A reality that if somebody identifies you as a female, you're probably less likely to be a suspect. Yes right? Yeah. And that's what she got in trouble. Couch, that's what she on trump but it's couched in this and other stuff she said that transphobic the general transphobia emily this referred to. Your friend is reporting the news, right? Exactly. What's going on? So I wanted to one more thing there. I have a problem with the SIS gender thing. You're not allowed to label anybody else with gender yet if you're sis gendered, you can be labeled cysts. So assess can't say that somebody else's something but everybody else can say someone is serious. I never agreed to adopt this term cysts wherever it came from. Interesting so. Like you can label. It's Kinda. Like racism. White people can't be racist. That's the thing. Can't. No. Only white people can be race. That right. Maybe only. So maybe only people have lost the right to label others. Kid Ginger anybody else but you can be gendered. Lost the ring. So here's the thing we've had a lot of focused. You mind if I zero two little mind vitamin do for. All. Right. We've had a lot of focus on the Kobe thing and I I was thinking. So I've had all these epiphanies have been peeling the onion and figuring out what is the real answer? What does it really mean to be free and? One of the ways to do that is. Or maybe the most. The only way that you can really control in your own life is to try to have control over your food over your health over your self-defense on an individual basis. So rotarians can fight to defend the bill of rights or other things like that but ultimately real freedom and I think money is also problems. So like if you were free for money that would also be a kind of freedom excuse me. And I thought well I know that right but I'm I have kids that are I'm not very flexible right now I've got teenagers. MIASMA works I. Just I have a life has been built around this and not sure have the energy to completely change the paradigm of my own life and I just thought of a little analogy like not everyone gets on that last chopper out of Saigon. Remember that picture of the river like the last from Nineteen seventy-two, very famous iconic video of the last chopper like overloaded with people to as the US was pulling out of the Vietnam was. Like another way of thing is like not everyone gets on the last spaceship to Mars. An earth is collapsing and not everybody's getting. They say we'll have ruined for a certain amount of people. Yeah and you're definitely not getting the like on the site on the old people and the slow people are not getting on that chopper sick people. They're not going to put a hand up they're going to take a little and you have to choose whatever. Yeah I don't even know if they choose. It's just you're not GonNa get to the helicopter. If you're slower sick I'M NOT GONNA get to it from too old. So I was just thinking about what that was. You know the full of Saigon everybody knew they wanted to get on that chapter chapter because why? Because the the Saigon was falling and what does that mean what that means is? There was a regime change. There is a battle for control of the governments of that land and those people, and it was a revolution a revolutionary change to the the way of governments to the culture to everything a regime change. And a lot of people are going to suffer for that the change was going to be radical and it was. And that's exactly what happened here. Now, that's what happened. They're not obeying the constitution anymore we have had a radical revolutionary coup change in the government change in the regime. When we get out of this on the other side, my kids aren't maybe they go back to school maybe we go back to work, but it's not gonna be the same you brought the story about. The building's being different. We've seen this everything's going to be highly wired highly surveilled that the nature of our transportation is going to be different of our health. Everything's GonNa. We're going to live in a different world and it will be it is a regime changing coup revolution that's really negated the constitution, the foundational documents of this country and that's what we just experienced with. Is Gone, and we're not on it and they've done this overtly and they've gotten people to ask for this through this crisis that we've gone through and they've expedited this process. It had been working slow and subtle to do this to transform society over the previous years it was not near as overt, but through the pandemic, they've just laid to bear everything they're doing it seems like. An incremental ISM was the was the watchword since the sixties. That's how they did it for sure and you didn't notice that every single thing that they ultimately got implemented completely they never acknowledged they didn't get rid of poverty or racism or all the things that they said these are the programs settled do it they brought the programs that it didn't do it but because there's was incremental nobody noticed by now you have the World Economic Forum. And the great resets was about to go and yesterday when I read that hack attack thing I'm sure that your signaling that with what you're saying from the great reset and yesterday I, talked about hack attack where they said philanthropies and found philanthropic organizations and foundations will merge and will provide the overarching stability of government when nation states The Echo.

Got Sick or if there was ever a need to go to the hospital, I would want to be in Saigon or Holtzman city.

So from what I've noticed a lot of Vietnamese Americans. who were like premise came to the US they call it Saigon. But everyone over there. Call it. Hope Human City. Yeah. I mean when you look on Google search human he yeah. Yeah. So I guess that's the official. maybe it's just the communist thing. E Yeah. So how men his? no-win known as a as an his name as well.
