"Whatever you want to do. But I do not understand why The White House Jill Biden, the First Lady on international women's day this week, gave an award to a man. I mean, at what point does this degenerate from women? The international, first of all, was it given out yesterday or Wednesday? And it's like for international women. And who is it? I really, I haven't read on this at all. Who is it given to? Do you know? No, I can't remember who it was, but it was something I didn't recognize. I mean, it was not like a song. It's a woman of the year. Is that what it is? Was I a woman award? Okay. Joe Biden gives biological male women who may a woman of women of courage award up your games ladies.

Secretary of State Blinken says China gave 'no apology' in Munich for spy balloon
"Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he's concerned China's considering supporting Russia's war in Ukraine with lethal assistance.

We are concerned that China is considering supporting Russia's war effort in Ukraine with lethal assistance. Something that we're watching very, very close.

British prime minister Rishi sunak told the conference NATO allies should finalize a security guarantee for Ukraine when the alliance's leaders meet at a summit in July. One year after Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24th, the global economy is still enduring the consequences as we hear from Bloomberg's Amy Morris. Tight supplies of grain fertilizer and energy along with more inflation and economic uncertainty have created problems, especially in emerging economies. Companies and countries in the developed world have proved surprisingly resilient, a warmer than usual winter has helped lower natural gas prices limiting the damage from an energy crisis, but it all adds up to a slowing global economy.

"Afternoon, I'm Hillary Howard. And I'm Sean Anderson. Mike Jacques is our producer. Top story we're following for you in the afternoon, the latest on that suspected Chinese spy balloon hovering over U.S. airspace. The discovery of that Chinese balloon has prompted Secretary of State Anthony blinken to postpone a planned diplomatic trip to China. His aides say President Biden agrees it wouldn't be appropriate for the Secretary of State to be visiting China while a Chinese surveillance balloon floats above mid America. Press secretary karine Jean Pierre. The presence of this balloon in our airspace, it is a clear violation of our sovereignty as well as international law. While The White House says it's keeping options open, Jean Pierre says the president accepted the strong recommendation of The Pentagon's top brass that shooting the balloon down would pose risks to those on the ground. Stephen portnoy, CBS News, Washington. Meantime, this gigantic balloon is drifting across the country and headed in a southeasterly direction currently. China says it's a weather balloon, The Pentagon says it's a spy balloon. The question they're wrestling with, what to do about it. WTO national security correspondent JJ green joins us live with more JJ. JJ. I know that it's a surveillance balloon, and I'm not going to be able to be more specific than that. Pentagon spokesman. General pat Ryder. And here's something else they know that balloon has violated U.S. airspace and international law, which is unacceptable. And so we've conveyed this directly to the PRC at multiple levels. Right now, it's said to be flying above commercial airspace. Right now we assess that there is no threat of physical threat or military threat to people on the ground. So we're continuing to monitor. And the question you're wrestling with right now is what to do about it. And the reason for that is because they know that this balloon is going to continue floating across U.S. airspace within the hour we've learned that it's about 20 miles from Kansas City and I can imagine that as it continues to float it's going to retract all sorts of curiosity from folks that want to see it and try to figure out for themselves what to do about it. Reporting live, JJ green, WTO being used. Well, JJ, how long have U.S. officials known about this and why hasn't action been taken to bring it down? Well, if you think about it, this balloon was first reported about over billings, Montana, and that was a couple of days ago, but this has flown supposedly from China and it takes a while to get to billings, Montana from China. So we imagine and just knowing what it is that the U.S. intelligence and security military security community has at play here, they have an entire what they call domestic events, network which is a network of sensors and cameras across the country that keep an eye on things. It would have to have been at least a week. And so part of the problem here is that there are political concerns, security concerns, intelligence curiosity, are there those are all likely reasons why it hasn't been shot down. There's a whole symphony of people on social media calling for that to happen, but I don't know that that would happen because if so, it could destroy any possible intelligence value the U.S. would get from it. But I do know one thing. It's not going back to China, based on what I've heard from sources. JJ, thanks so much. You're welcome. WTO national security correspondent JJ green.

"Insight and analysis are NBC News, White House correspondent Mike menley. PBS NewsHour, chief correspondent, amna Nawaz. Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki. And Republican strategist, Sarah fagan. Welcome to Sunday. It's meet the press. From NBC News in Washington, the longest running show in television history. This is meet the press with chuck Todd. And a good Sunday morning. No two men have challenged democracy and global stability more than Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, and that was on full display again this week. Here at home, Republicans in the House made it clear that their answer to the violent coup attempt on the U.S. capitol on January 6th and the former president's monthslong campaign to overturn the election results is to do nothing. Just 9 Republicans voted for a bill to prevent future presidents from trying to overturn election results through Congress. None of those 9 House Republicans that voted for this bill are returning to Congress next year, either because they lost primaries or they chose to retire. 203 House Republicans voted against this bill. There's a Senate bill that's very similar that has more bipartisan support. 11 Republican co sponsors than actual votes in the house. But now that bill may not get a vote until after the midterm elections. And election denialism is no longer an anomaly. According to one analysis this week, 201 of the 552 Republican nominees running for House Senate governor Secretary of State and attorney general, 36% of those nominees fully deny the legitimacy of the 2020 election. This doesn't count people that say, Joe Biden is the president and won't talk about it. This includes just those that fully deny. That's a big number. Globally, the existential threat to democracy is Vladimir Putin. Whose decision to invade Ukraine has produced the biggest conflict in Europe since the Second World War. Putin is now threatening to use Russia's nuclear weapons, saying in a televised address, this is not a bluff. President Biden responded at the United Nations. This war is about extinguishing Ukraine's right to exist as a state, plan and simple. And Ukraine's right to exist as a people. Whoever you are, wherever you live, whatever you believe, that should not, that should make your blood run cold. We're going to hear from the German Chancellor Olaf scholz, Ukraine's prime minister, Dennis Schmitt, but I'm going to start with the president's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan. Mister Sullivan, welcome back to meet press. Thanks for having me, chuck. All right, let me start with this. We have Russia doing these sham referendums trying to annex territory from Ukraine. We've got the civilian draft that Putin instituted a mobilize an additional 300,000 troops. So based on those two developments, what is the U.S. assessment right now of why Putin is making these moves. And is it a sign that he's losing this war? Well, chuck, throwing together sham referenda on three days notice and scrambling to call up hundreds of thousands of people who are going to need to get trained and organized is not a sign of strength. It's not a sign of confidence, quite the opposite. It's a sign that he is struggling very badly in Ukraine that the Russian army is struggling badly and that he doesn't have a lot of options left because he really did not want to have to move to mobilization. He knew that as soon as he ordered mobilization, there would be some upheaval in the country and we're seeing the images and scenes of that right now. So the Russian army is in trouble and the Ukrainian army is making gains on the battlefield and stopping the Russians from making progress in areas where they continue to try to advance. But that doesn't mean that the danger is over. It is very much real and still with us because of Vladimir Putin remains intent as you just heard from President Biden on wiping out the Ukrainian people that he does not believe that Ukraine should have a right to exist. So he's going to keep coming. And we have to keep coming with weapons ammunition intelligence and all the support we can provide to the Ukrainians as they defend their land and their freedom and their democracy. The German Chancellor Olaf scholz told me earlier this week that there would be severe consequences for this sham referendum. And he said, obviously, they're being nobody would recognize their hold over these territories, et cetera. But what are the consequences that he's referring to? What are is there something he didn't say? That's going to come to Russia for doing these sham referendums. Well, the leaders of the group of 7 nations, the group of the world's advanced democracies that includes both the United States and Germany actually put out a statement on Friday after the beginning of the voting, the so called voting in these fake elections that are taking place. In that document, they reiterated that there would be consequences and specified that that would include additional enhanced sanctions, including sanctions on entities and companies outside of Russia that are supporting the Russian war machine or supporting these fake referenda or Russia's effort to annex them. So you will see that in the days ahead, the United States will have further announcements in coming days if Russia follows through on this. And of course, it will only redouble our efforts to provide Ukraine the equipment and weapons that it needs to prevail in this conflict. While you were talking, we were able to show some footage of people voting with under the supervision of armed Russian guards. So just to give folks a taste of what kind of referendum, this is

Europe correspondent Maria todayo Maria We've had no truce yet but we have had a possible land grab from Putin What's the latest in Kyiv Yes and there was no truth on the Sunday Remember this is the biggest religious festivity in the Christian orthodox world It is a very big day for Russia and Ukraine And in fact there was this idea that perhaps on this Sunday there could be an end potentially or a boss to hostilities And of course it was not the case And then when it comes to the land grab I think we're starting to see where Russia goes from here which is not a pullback in any way but just this idea of trying to cement occupied territory in the south and the west of the east of the country excuse me to create this land bridge all the way to Crimea This is something that we've known that have wanted to do for a long time It would de facto connect it and give it an end away from the Russian Federation and to all of the east of Ukraine And that is precisely the concern now The far from deescalation what we're going to see is a Russia that essentially decided to settle potentially carry out a referendum and remember those so called public popular referendums that they've done in the past in order to annex more territory into Russia Also we're getting some fresh news lines from AP around the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony blinken and his visit to Kyiv saying that Ukraine is succeeding and that Russia is failing in its war aim So this from blinken Where Can we even really talk about peace talks when it comes to Ukraine Well right now it's very clear that these talks are just not happening and for weeks There was this whole potentially expectation that there could still be a diplomatic solution to this but if you look at the reality on the ground right now it really is just military and skeletor in every way There are no talks So we know scheduled for this week in terms of that meeting between zelensky and Vladimir Putin as a way out of this crisis that is nowhere to be seen He repeated again this invitation on Saturday Vladimir zelensky did a press conference in the Kyiv underground of the metro in front of the international press He repeated that invite but of course there's been no answer on this And it's also important to note that Ukraine has warned if the Ukrainian soldiers were stuck in the asshole staff in the steel plant in maru or killed remember there's about 2000 of them Vladimir zelensky said in our eyes that would put an end to the peace dog So this is moving the opposite way And every practical realistic scenario it's just retrenching from any peace deal at the time I wore this escalating of Vladimir Putin looking to the next more of Ukraine into the Russian Federation That press conference with blinken and Austin happening as we speak Finally Maria the U.S. is sending some of its embassy personnel back to Ukraine Does this give hope for some more normality perhaps And the west of the country definitely yes and a lot of this has to do with that symbol for going back We're sending back our people and some of the U.S. personnel going back to key Remember at the start of the war the first thing in the United States did was to move the personal allowed and to some of the cities around the Polish border Now going back gives the Ukrainian people some sorts of normality We know that it's not going to put an end to the war but they like this The legacy and international leaders go in there They feel it's a show of support that they appreciate Yeah and Austin saying that the U.S. has the mindset that it

"Building on Biden's earlier voluntary rejection of U.S. Military involvement, Russia has convinced the west that even a whisper of NATO military action in Ukraine would bring disastrous consequences. Putin's directive enhancing the alert status of Russia's nuclear forces brought on something approaching panic in the west, although there is no publicly available evidence that Russia's forces have operationally changed anything. A battle in and around the Zappos nuclear power facility also produced near hysteria, but neither the IAEA nor The Pentagon detected any radiation leaks or damage to the reactor complex itself. Desperate Ukrainian requests for a NATO no fly zone over Ukraine have been flatly rejected. On Friday, Secretary of State blinken said to actually implement something like a no fly zone could lead to a full fledged war in Europe and the only thing worse than a war that's contained to Ukraine is one that escalates even further and goes beyond it. This logic is false, a classic non sequitur. It rests on the tacit, but manifestly incorrect premise that even one hostile encounter between Russian and western forces will escalate immediately to all out possibly nuclear war. Obviously, there are risks in any NATO military role. But it is utterly wrong to say because there are some risks that every risk leads inexorably to massive escalation, much less that the west should therefore take no military action. There is ample distance between steppe alpha and step omega and considerable room for maneuver. Clearly, however, once again, Putin is getting much of what he wants from NATO for free. He threatens he blusters, he used the word nuclear and the west wilts. This is the very paradigm of effective deterrence. There are undoubtedly hard and dangerous choices to be made, but total military quiescence also imposes costs, strategic and humanitarian, which are now unfolding. Predictably, hesitant westerners are fearful of giving Russia a pretext for attacking NATO members. That argument proves too much. If Moscow needs a pretext, it has one already. Washington has long and quite rightly provided intelligence to Ukraine at a frenetic pace. The White House boasts that this includes information that should help them inform and develop their military response to Russia's invasion. This intelligence may not strictly speaking, insert the U.S. into Ukraine's military kill chain, find, fix, track, target, engage, assess, but if Russia is merely looking for a pretext, it surely would suffice. Further, pretexts include The White House boasting to favored media outlets about the massive provision of anti tank weapons and cyber warfare assistance. Since Putin has already declared economic sanctions akin to a declaration of war, hesitant westerners will likely resist further efforts at real deterrence even more strenuously. Europe and America are indulging in considerable self satisfaction about the economic sanctions deployed against Russia. But we should not feel serene that although our deterrence broke down and Ukraine is being devastated, Russia is suffering severe punishment. The purpose of deterrence strategy is to prevent the conflict entirely and there, Washington failed badly. Worse, Russia's prospects of prevailing against Ukraine are enhanced by its successful deterrence against NATO acting in ways that could effectively counter its aggression. This is nothing to celebrate..

"We're in, let's talk about the 100,000 troops on the Ukraine Russian border. Yes, Vladimir Putin has a 100,000 troops there. Amazing how that happens, right? I don't recall this being such an issue during the Trump presidency, but suddenly now, the Democrats are back in power. The guy whose vice president to the guy who allowed the annexing of Crimea don't forget back in 2014, that was under president Obama's leadership, so if I'm bought and I'm like, well, hey, you know, maybe I take a stab at this again and see what happens with this guy.

And others within this administration, that don't get that Vladimir Putin doesn't care about being one in their club, right? They think, wow, if you're going to be an actor on the world stage, if you're going to be part of this great society, if you're going to be part of one of the liberal economies in the world, then you kind of need to act by a certain code. Boom doesn't care about the code. You just get one bit. You know, that was actually something that Donald Trump kind of understood. Innately, he got that that Putin was just playing by a different set of rules. And we, as a nation, needed to adapt to that game of chess in some ways, right? Rather than sitting there and never never land thinking that everybody wants to win a Nobel Prize. Well, maybe some leaders don't actually care about that. Maybe they're just going to do what is in their interest, which in this case, lateral Putin sees as having more control over Ukraine. He doesn't want NATO right there. You know, at his back door on his frontier, it would be like us, you know, having to deal with China. Right there on the Canadian border, we wouldn't like that, right?

"Internal review with you, Hewitt. As the week progressed, it was clear that the by administration plans to put Afghanistan behind us move on to other matters. Well, they were not working a cold blooded effort to ignore the fact that the US had abandoned people in the country controlled by terrorists plays into the narrative that this administration this president Has lost its collective actions cowardly and shameful. I discussed the magnification with the Washington Examiner's Byron York as you listened to Secretary of State Blinken speak over the last couple of weeks. It was also clear that they were never going to get every single American Out of Afghanistan who wanted to get out of Afghanistan Plus The thing that was really clear. Was that the entire operation was dependent on the goodwill of the Taliban. Ned Price, the State Department spokesman, Tweeted Quote. The Taliban needs to meet its commitments and obligations in Afghanistan on freedom of travel, respecting basic rights of the people upholding its commitments on counterterrorism. Not carrying out Reprisal violence against those who state and forming an inclusive government. Which is kind of an Alison Wonderland sort of position of the state Department. But here we are, Byron, do you I have not seen authenticated the helicopter hanging video. Do you believe it to be true? I don't know. I've seen that video and I have not seen any other evidence of Taliban actually flying the Blackhawks, as opposed to standing right looking at them. Do know what General Mackenzie said Americans in the low hundreds. Do you have a minimum number? I don't I can't understand why we don't get a minimum number of low hundreds. How many? Is that? At Least what is it, 101? Is it 201 150 effort, all sorts of different numbers? Well, the Secretary of state Blinken, it said that it was no more than 200, maybe closer to 100. And here again, he he was unclear, just as officials have always been unclear the whole time. What? And does that include green card holders? Byron do you know? I mean, these are not hard question, but they've avoided them from three different podiums for three weeks, and it's three different questions. Three different podiums never answered once in three weeks. Correct And by the way, the allies the whole allies question is unclear. Uhm exactly want all of our standards are, uh, for the release of for the authority evacuation of allies blinking in his remarks, said more than 123,000 people. Have been safely flown out of Afghanistan that includes about 6000 American citizens. Regarding 6000 Americans 117,000. Perhaps loosely defined allies. I don't know. Somewhere between 102 100 Americans who are still there. Beiring. What is the idea on the hill? I think we ought to take in all 117,000 vet them when they're here like we did after the fall of Saigon and let people stay. We have let this country down so badly. But what is the thinking on the hill? Well, I think that they want to know more about the 117,000. Because first of all, when he remember early on in this, we heard that there were 10 to 15,000. U. S citizen. In Afghanistan, and then it turned out, according to the state Department. That number was overstated, and it really was 6000 roughly, and Blinken says those 6000 with the exception of somewhere between 102 100. Americans have been evacuated. And by the way on the 102 100, there have been very squirrely on the question of whether U. S forces simply haven't been able to get to them. They really want to leave that We haven't been able to get to them or they didn't want to go. It seems clear that there are some Americans who really want to leave. That the United States was not able to get to and those frenzy last days. Matthew Downer. I don't know if you follow his Twitter account. Hildale Grad Marine University, Michigan Lawyer Hill staffer now tweeted out Right now in Kabul are American citizens who wave their passport at gate after gate but couldn't get through. And now America has left them to the Taliban. I believe Matt Downer. I do not believe that three podiums that is absolutely clear abandonment, and by the way, it's a result of this terrible, terrible tactics is terrible Plan. That the administration chose to actually get people out. This was by choice. This that it was all arbitrary and stubborn. But I'm getting a lot of angry email from people who say they are embarrassed and dismayed that no one has resigned. What have you heard about this? Look, I think that on as far as Republicans on Capitol Hill are concerned You're seeing one desire to know. Most of all, Why weren't all U. S citizens taken out of Afghanistan to who are the 117,000, who were non Americans who were taken out? Three. What in the world is happening with the billions and billions of dollars of weaponry and machinery of war that were left there for what is going to happen as far as the continuing relations quote with the Taliban In the first seven months of the by administration, the media treated him with kid grow up. President took only certain questions from specified reporters. They comply, But his actions in the Afghanistan collapse triggered a very different reaction. The major news organizations have deeply invested in that country for two decades. They know the people they've seen the faces of the girls who've been allowed freedom for the first time we've gotten to know their family have Afghan reporters that they have trained and groaned a lot. To see this happen to their friends. Now it's personal sale Most. Mike Gallagher begins his segment with an interview President Biden did with ABC. George Stephanopoulos, where the president maybe vital promise that he would break less than two weeks later. And are you committed to making sure that the troops day until every American who wants to be out without Yes. How about our Afghan allies? Does the commitment holds for them as well? The commitment holds to get everyone out that in fact, we can get out and everyone should come out and that's the objective. That's what we're doing. Now. That's the path we're on. I think we'll get so Americans should understand the truth might have to be there beyond August. 31st. Americans would understand that we're going to try to get it done before August, But if we don't The truth is, we don't will determine at the time who's left and And if you're American Force If there's American citizens left, we're in stated we get them all out.
