"Let's start here. Let's go to cut one. This is a hapless California Democrat John Garamendi, Um, again a complete zero. Um, a guy who realizes treason may have been committed and the Democrats were involved in a coup. That's not even a possible that that's a definite that they were involved in a coup. They admitted it, I'll show you a tweet. I'll read a tweet for you in a second from CNN. But here's Garamendi, hapless California Democrat defending Millie's decision saying, you know It's no big deal. We'll take a look. But this isn't a big already running damage control. Check this out. Key General Milley called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office of top military brass and basically said to them if you get calls, no matter who they're from, there is a process here. There is a procedure no matter what you're told. You do the procedure. You do the process and I'm a part of the procedure. Meaning he didn't want them. Responding really two calls from the commander in chief. Unless he was involved as a member of the Armed Services Committee. Do you see that as an end run somehow around the commander in chief? Or course Trump was, uh, unhinged by the election by his loss in the election, and he displayed that, uh, clearly from the evening of the election right on through to today, and he remains unstable with regard to his election loss. He clearly was deeply engaged in the 2000 election. 1000. January 6th insurrection He brought those people he encouraged them to come and he had done encouraged them to march on the capital. All of that is known. The investigations of all of this will are underway now. This select committee is delving into all of these communications.

Sen. Tom Cotton Critiques Biden for No Clear Afghanistan Evacuation Plan
"Where do you stand on this? And then I want to get into. Obviously this this disaster that's taken place here. Yeah, Mark, Thanks for having me on this very sad day for America and for our power prestige in the world. Um, I think the point you make a lot of Americans are wondering right now. You heard a lot of criticism from the left and the right, frankly. About, um, the duration of the Afghan war, and I understand why some Americans might grow weary of it. Um, but what we never heard from the Biden administration and certainly from Joe Biden when he announced his withdrawal in April is how they would control the likely consequences. The withdrawal of that small force. One of which being the exact kinds of chaos that we see in Afghanistan. Now our failure to get American citizens out of Afghanistan to say nothing of Afghans who aided us a second is How we can possibly prevent the Taliban from turning Afghanistan into a terrorist safe haven again. I've never heard a briefing on the Intelligence Committee of the Armed Services Committee. From Abide Administration official about how they will conduct counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan without a presence there. Uh and you heard Joe Biden today say that don't worry. We have plans for they called it over the horizon. Counterterrorism strikes from hundreds and hundreds of miles away with no intelligence presence on the ground at all, which I suspect will be executed about as well as Joe Biden has actually executed. Fairly routine non combatant evacuation operation and if you understand the last few

Carl Levin, Michigan's Longest Serving US Senator, Dies at 87
"First elected to congress in nineteen seventy-eight michigan's longest serving senator chaired the powerful armed services committee. He was very active around civil rights local development and protecting american workers having interviewed senator levin and read his memoir. Getting to the heart of the matter. I have some reflections. I imagined that if senator levin had a role in a television show he'd be fictional president. Jed bartlett's closest ally in the west wing practical and patriotic levin's thirty six years in the upper chamber as a democrat had paradoxes a democrat who investigated spending and financial excess in government as well as wall street a staunch believer as chair of the senate armed services committee. That america has a strong role to play in the world but voted against the second iraq. War levin was consistent with himself. He was a man who spent decades of politics. But i sense. He felt good about his impact when he saw himself in the mirror. Getting the heart of the matter reminds me of the writings of ben franklin. The similarities with the founding father aren't just physical appearance surprising wit and clearly understandable style both levin and franklin shared the belief that the long game mattered that even if it wasn't politically popular in the moment moment to make things happen in a country with a lot of people with differing views. You shouldn't always take everything off the table for your opponent that making is how democracy actually works his memoir is a blueprint without saying it and how we might put the broken engine of american democracy back together again. Levin rhetorically lays the parts on the table. I won't get into all of them. But they include the broken filibuster where he called out his own party for creating it then in order for an electorate and your colleagues to trust you you need to have a consistent northstar and compass and he's right if you look at the popular senior senator from vermont. The reason that he gets photo shopped everywhere sitting on a chair isn't because of any particular political stance it's because whether they agree or not people connect with him because they believe that he is who he says he is.
Senate Panel Votes That Women Should Register for the Draft
"Alright, Here we go. Senate defense budget. Their bill would require women to register for the draft. Have you heard this one? Mr List? My Catholic Italian. Mr. Producer says. Oh, yeah, I don't blame him. Oh, he is right. This is from New York Post They Senate panels. Newly approved defense budget includes a provision requiring women to register for the draft. There were a number of Republican senators on this committee. Who either did not vote. They weren't present or voted for this, and we're trying to figure out which ones Now those of you forget about PC and all the rest of the crap those of you with a daughter. Those of you with a little girl. Do you want that little girl to register for the draft? Of course you don't. Changes to the draft, officially known as the Selective Service system, were made official in the National Defense Authorization Act. The annual military budget bill, which the Senate Armed Services Committee announced it had approved on Thursday. The N D. A amends the military Select Service Act to require the registration of women for selective service. The U. S military has not instituted a draft since the Vietnam War, and Pentagon officials have repeatedly said they intend to keep US armed forces. All voluntary star men between the ages of 18 and 25 are legally required. Be registered with the Selective service system. Penalties for not doing so include losing access to federal financial programs for higher education. Actually, that would be a good thing, I think But the language strikes explicit references to men changing the requirement to all Americans. The change was originally proposed by Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Jack Reed of Rhode Island
Should Military Members Have a Vaccine Mandate?
"Now congressman. I advance the proposition in the washington. Post yesterday. The military ought to require vaccinations for the virus of every member in uniform including every government employees. Did oh the national guard. I don't know if that's come up before haski yet. But i am concerned not about the dealt or even the epsilon variant but variants down the road that might be vaccine evading and even more very lynch and target young people etc. Has that been discussed. What do you think about that mandate because the military when you were marine. I'm sure they didn't ask for your permission to give vaccines. It has been discussed by the chairman. Adam smith and i believe if memory serves he sympathetic to your argument. I'm not there yet. upset couldn't be persuaded. I just i. I certainly think the vaccine should be readily available for every active duty service member in reservists. Who wants to get it but for me to be convinced that a twenty two year old in the prime of his health needs to be mandated to get the vaccine. I've just not there right now. But it's certainly something that's being debated on the armed services committee and certainly we don't want the delta variant to sweep through the armed services find his way on an aircraft carrier a fight his way onto a destroyer and make combat ineffective the already stressed naval force. We have out there at something. We absolutely need to be on guard against. I myself am vaccinated. I think the vaccine is a remarkable technology. I think it's a remarkable accomplishment of the trump administration. That's my choice That's the choice. My wife and i made a together. We feel very comfortable and safe with the whole thing. I've done my best to promote it. But at the end of the day. I get hesitant win. For example the left suggests we need to vaccinating children in schools. I thought dr. Marty mccarey made a very persuasive argument wall street journal this week. That the data just aren't there to suggest we need to now. I know that's a different issue. Hugh than the military being the accident. I don't want complete those two arguments. But i have a little bit of hesitancy when we start to talk about mandates for the vaccine at the same time i wanted to everything possible to promote the vaccine which again i think is a technology. That's not just gonna help us now. But it's going to unlock a ton of subsequent scientific

"I guess Americans to know that the Russian nuclear Inventory about 88% of it has been modernized about. None of ours has been modernized under the Biden proposed massive multi trillion dollars $6 trillion budget. The defense budget really goes negative because he doesn't even give enough of an increase to cover existing expenses. Correct. That is correct. President Biden budget, which will bankrupt America is actually a cut to our national defense budget because it doesn't keep pace with inflation. This is a really big win that President Trump delivered. We were in the process of rebuilding our national defense. Our military readiness. This is something that I work on on the House Armed Services Committee. When it comes to nuclear modernization. Democrats in Congress are very much opposed to making the critical investments we need when it comes to nuclear modernization. Yet adversaries like Russia to your point mark have made those investments and Putin's top priority was to get that five year extension for the new start treaty. Biden gave it away. Without delivering anything back to the United States.

Bloomberg chief Washington correspondent Kevin so really sat down with Main Street GOP president and C E O Sarah Chamberlain. Let's listen into part of that conversation now. Sarah, you represent a group of centrist Republicans. What is the data show you in terms of where Republicans are on increasing taxes on the wealthy? They do not want their taxes increased. I think it's it mean they knew would buy them being elected that it would probably become, you know the reality, but they're really opposed to it. You know the upper percentage American people are spending money, which is trigger and down and you know it's working and if without cold Ed The tax cuts would have done had been an issue because you know, the kind of me would have been booming with covert coming. You know his slow the economy down, obviously, but it would be a real shame if with the taxes go up again, But they will. I mean they're going to. I don't think there's much we can do to prevent that. Um, you know, it just it is what it is, but I think one of the reasons he got something two million votes. President Trump is because people do not want to tax is going back up. The people who are making over $400,000 a year feel they're paying a great deal on taxes, and they're paying their fresher But politically for the Democrats, this is a very popular proposal. Is it not? Again is on Lee so much the top players can pay in taxes. I mean that we have to revamp and look at a wide range of where the financial structure in this country is and how we're spending our money, and we can get into covert and all of that, But the reality is there's only so much you can tax the upper 1%.

Biden, Dems prevail as Senate OKs $1.9T virus relief bill
"Senate. Democratic leaders have reached an agreement over unemployment benefits with moderate democratic senator joe manchin ending a nine hour. Standoff threatened to derail action on president biden's covert relief bill. The agreement would extend the existing three hundred dollar weekly unemployment benefit through september the sixth and it offers tax forgiveness and to ten thousand two hundred dollars in unemployment benefits for those who make less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in a statement released tonight. Senator manchin said we have reached a compromise that enables the economy to rebound quickly while also protecting those receiving unemployment benefits from being hit with unexpected tax bills. Next year joining us. Now on this breaking news democratic. Senator tim kaine of virginia he is a member of the senate budget committee. And the senate armed services committee senator. Kaine good to see you this evening on one hand. I'm not quite sure what what was happening. In the senate for nine hours on the other hand we have crossed an important hurdle at this point and are moving toward the passage of this bill. Tell me what is going on malley. You're right. I mean we've got fifty democratic senators and we need every one of their votes to get this bill which will do so much good for americans to president by his desk. Senator manchin hannah concern about the way the unemployment insurance benefits were structured. And he stuck to his guns and that concern was not my concern. I i really liked the bill as it came over from the house. I think we made it. Stronger of senator manchin needed some additional adjustments to get there. But now we're there and we're gonna rocket four and they're going to be dozens. Maybe hundreds of amendments that republicans will offer tonight and tomorrow but democrats. We have linked arms with president biden said. The american public needs this relief and they needed soon. And we're gonna stay at our desks and tell sometime over the weekend. We send this bill back to a house for a quick vote so the president by to get it next week four unexpected. It's obvious why so. Many americans support this bill. It's not actually a partisan thing it's money that people need in their pockets. It is overwhelmingly popular amongst americans. It is even supported by the majority of republican voters. What's going on. what's what's the reason for. Fifty republicans not voting in favor of this and by the way. No republicans voted in favor of it in the house alley. My my gut is this. I think they've made a strategic decision and remember just replay. The tape back to the beginning of the obama biden administration. They just sort of decided no matter what. The new president offers to rescue the american economy. We're going to be against it. I will say this. This is a bill. That is just chock full of of provisions that republicans have offered in past years. It's chock full of provisions that are desired by republican governors. And mayors as you point out it's full of provisions that are popular republican voters and when it's implemented it's gonna do enormous good for republicans and independents and democrats so they made a strategic decision. That and i can't put myself in their shoes about why they don't want to be four but will be able to bring the final bill out and show you. How much bipartisan Agreement there is this bill. The democrats are just riveted upon the fact. We're still ten million jobs down from where we were laying out here. We've lost five hundred thousand people. Were not out of the woods yet. We're not gonna go slow to go fast. Climb out of this crisis.

Good morning. Center Cut. You know it's game week. Yeah, I'm well aware of that year when I suspected you didn't put that song on. All of us Can center gotten good morning to you. The news this morning is that President Elect buying will nominate Lloyd Austin to be secretary of defense. Now, Senator Blackburn did not want to engage in that conversation because, she said the Electoral College hasn't met yet. Would you engage with me on it on whether or not Lloyd Austin will Be good nominee on the Senate Armed Services Committee. Well, first, let me say that I respect and admire Ward off service to our nation over 40 years in uniforms, and I suspect that he might get quickly confirmed too many positions on by Democratic or Republican cabinet, for that matter. However, there are serious misgivings in the Senate about having another recently retired general become the secretary of defense. You'll recall that federal law prohibits Any general who's been retired for fewer than seven years to receive a waiver from the Congress to become the secretary defense before Jim Mattis in 2017, and it only happened once before for George Marshall in the 19 fifties. And there were several senators who voted against that many more senators have sense expressed their regret for granting that waiver given the state of civil military relations inside the Pentagon and up to the White House, And when I would just highlight Torus Jack Reed, he is the senior Democrat on the Armed Services Committee. And when he voted for that waiver in 2017. He expressed reservations about doing so. He said It should be a once in a generation moment, and that he would not in the future support another waiver for a recently retired general, so if they've already lost the senior Democrat on the Armed Services Committee You've got to think that, um, at risk of losing a lot of other senators, and I can tell you this is not really an ideological or even a political point. It has nothing to do with General Austin don't be used or records. Um, it is from liberal Democrats, too conservative Republicans in the Senate to share these concerns about civil military relations inside the Pentagon. Do you share those concerns? Senator Cotton Yes, I do for you, you know, to get down into the weeds a little bit about the Pentagon..
