Finally, Great News for Mayor Giuliani and Victoria Toensing
"Jennifer, Victoria town Singh, welcome back to mark the first one on one. Oh, it's always great to be back here. Need to be with you. Why was anybody surprised at president Trump made that announcement? Before yesterday. I mean, people were asking me, is he going to is he yeah, he's going to. Of course. You guys would have surprised, right? No, no, not at all. All right, let's start with some very, very good news that we managed to preview yesterday before you're right. You got some very good. Well, you didn't receive good news indirectly you found out about some good news concerning you in America's mayor. So please share. My lawyers got a letter that the case was over. It was oh, good. So tell us what happened to you and how it all fell apart for Biden's DoJ. Yeah, let me give you a quick background. In 2019, Rudy Giuliani called me and said, I'd like you to represent the prosecutor general, which is like the equivalent of attorney general. Of Ukraine because he's coming to me for representation. I have conflict. I represent Trump, but would you please do it? Because he wants to provide evidence of Biden, family corruption in Ukraine, and also Victor shoken, who Biden got fired because he was investigating burisma and Hunter Biden. That absolutely infamous moment, that video whereby he says. I'm going to hold back this $1 billion credit loan from America unless you fire Victor shokin and then Biden says son of a gun. He fired him. So so clever. So they were coming to say Biden's corrupt. And at that time, Rudy and I didn't think Biden would run because of all of this stuff that we had. And then representation never came through because there were threats and we were going to go to Ukraine to talk with them and the U.S. ambassador. Yovanovitch said she wouldn't protect us if we came. And so forth. So the U.S. ambassador said you're on your own. Right. And there's threats against you. The same U.S. ambassador, by the way, I'm sorry. That's the fight. We're going down rabbit warrens already, but the same use ambassador who we found out illegally tasked the State Department to monitor the social media council. And including my account, John Cena. John Solomon, Donald Trump Jr.'s because I guess that's what the State Department does monitor U.S. citizens. So what did that all develop into? So I didn't think anything more of it. They representation never came through. And I continued with my life. And so you can imagine my surprise. In April of 2021, when Merrick Garland and Chris ray sent the FBI to my house, our

A Shining Example of the Callousness of President Biden
"I've sometimes talked about the president Joe Biden as a nasty callous I don't care kind of guy. And it might seem that I'm referring solely to his ugly personality. And I am referring to that. I'm including that. But there's also a callousness and indifference and ugliness to the Biden administration. And what I mean is that the Biden administration is kind of Biden writ large. I'm not saying he's driving the canoe, but I'm saying the canoe and its direction reflects the personality of this gross crotchety man that is sitting at the helm. Now, here's an example of that. And I'm getting this from news reports that a new federal watchdog report shows that the State Department, this is the Biden State Department, recently was found to have as many as 325,000 unread emails from Afghans who assisted the U.S. war effort and want to be evacuated. So let's back up. The United States does this ignominious, humiliating retreat from Afghanistan. But there's a public assurance that we're not this is not going to be a Saigon style, turn tail and run, we're going to get our own people out and we're also going to make sure that the people who worked with us who had trust in us will at least be considered for to be allowed into this country to make the rest of their life in the United States. Now, what was really bad about the actual evacuation is a whole bunch of people ran onto the planes who were not vetted. Nobody knew who they were, they hadn't actually helped the United States in any way. They were just the fastest guys to get on the plane, and they got out. And there were people there who had worked as translators worked in various capacities with the U.S. who apparently have been in the many months now living by the way, these would now be seen as collaborators with the U.S. and targets for the Taliban regime. These people have been trying to reach out to the U.S. State Department probably to document what they did for the U.S., probably give their circumstances and ask if the United States can do anything to help them.
Robby Starbuck Unpacks the Censorship Efforts of the Biden DHS
"Now is Robbie starbuck, great guy who should be in Congress and we'll see if we can get that done one day, but he has some really important commentary and information to share about the bombshell story, the media has ignored of the Department of Homeland Security leaks, Robbie joins us now. Robbie, welcome back to the program. Thanks for having me, Charlie. Good to see you. Robbie, for those in our audience that are not caught up to date to this story because there just got a lot of things going on. We've been so focused on the election, which is where we should be focused. Walk us through this story. Yeah, so I mean, it's pretty wild. This is honestly groundbreaking in many different ways in terms of the lines crossed by the U.S. government, but essentially Department of Homeland Security and State Department, both coordinated with a group called the EIP, which stands for the election integrity partnership. It's composed of four entities. Those four entities have been given over $12 million in grants by the Biden administration, including over 3 million specifically earmarked for going and fighting misinformation through the EIP and as a part of this whole project. The EIP created an enemy's list that includes you and me and about 20 other people on it. What's unique about this list is when they made this, I was an active candidate for federal office. So this would be the first time the U.S. government has essentially engaged in open censorship paying a group and outside group to go and get involved in a political race. I'm sure given all the abuses we've seen from the FBI and DoJ that this is stuff that may have been going on for a very long time without people knowing, but they did this in a very bold manner. And so we saw the story from the intercept this week that kind of furthered this showing the portals that DHS and other entities had access to and these portals would allow outsiders within the EIP and within governments to go and make specific requests to the social media companies.

Tom Cotton on the Afghanistan Collaps
"Painful to talk about, but we have to talk about the collapse in Afghanistan a year ago because no one in the mainstream media is legacy media is abandoned the issue. We've condemned a country to darkness. We didn't have to do so. Mike Pompeo has told me you've confirmed we were planning to leave 2500 troops there. It didn't have to happen. With that incompetence, was that design? Was that Joe Biden just living off the fumes of the Obama presidency? Well, I think that the way Afghanistan collapsed last summer was the combination of Joe Biden's rank and competence and his deep insecurity. As I explained in only the strong drawing upon some memoirs at the time, by people like Secretary of Defense bob dates, Joe Biden, in 2009, subjected Barack Obama to what bob dates called Chinese water torture over Afghanistan. And he poisoned the well between Obama and our military leaders. Constantly accusing them of being misleading, of leaking to the press of undermining president Obama in a way that Joe bob dates had he never saw under George W. Bush. May have disagreed. I've seen disagreements between senior military leaders and president Bush. But no mistrust. That's pretty common for Democrats and the military though. But for 13 years, Joe Biden believed that he would write about Afghanistan and everyone, including Barack Obama was wrong. And he had to chip on his shoulder. And he wanted to show everyone in 2021 that he had been right all along. And that's why he disregarded the best military advice of our commander in Afghanistan, our commander in the Middle East, our chairman of the joint chiefs, his own Secretary of Defense, frankly, most of his own civilian advisers in The White House and the State Department. He wanted to show that he was right and had been all along, and he wouldn't listen to the obvious facts about what led to the collapse in Afghanistan. So precipitously, I mean, just 5 weeks before Kabul fail, he was saying there'd be no Saigon like collapse. And this is now as I explained really strong the Afghan effect is going to be as bad as the Vietnam effect was, or at least as long as Joe Biden is president. Let's

Rep. Andy Biggs: State Dept. Should Explain Their Woke Ideology
"Of the most concerning involves these drag theater performances that are being funded not just on American soil by our tax dollars, but also in Ecuador, The White House defending all of this, but you've written a letter demanding answers from the Secretary of State what do you want to hear from the Secretary of State? Well, I want what I really want to hear is I wanted to say I had no idea this is stopped and we will never do something so important again. That's what I want to hear, but in the meantime, since we probably won't hear that, I want to hear the who made the decision why they made the decision how much money they spent, how many other places around the world is this happening. And I wanted to get behind the whole woke ideology of the State Department and why they're focused on that instead of things like, I don't know, encouraging Ukraine and Russia to try to sit down at the table and start negotiating peace. How about that? Isn't that what the State Department would do is what they did always during the Middle East crises between the Arab Israeli wars, how about trying to do that? I mean,
How Do You Not Have a Defense Budget Two Years In?
"Reason we have the federal government, originally it was only meant to be for interstate commerce and defense and foreign affairs. How do you not have a defense budget two years in? Well, how do you spend literally trillions of dollars in unprogrammed spending? Inflation reduction act, infrastructure thing. COVID thing, right? You add all that up. That's several $1 trillion. Not a nickel in there is for defense. And then of course, the impact of inflation is that you're actually losing defense funding because the 10% inflation. Right. And this is while we're actively supporting operations. In Ukraine, China is building out its military every day. Iran is as dangerous as ever. Russia, okay, maybe it was a paper Tiger, but if Putin survives, it's going to be just like Germany's defeat after World War I. The first thing that Germany started to do is how can we rebuild and come back better next time? So Russia is dangerous. Iran's dangerous North Korea is probably tested nuclear weapon by Thanksgiving. China is getting more dangerous. And we are basically funding important things like drag queen shows on bases. Training in the gender pronoun training in the navy gym. Yeah, right. The important stuff. And not even just in the military, you know, the State Department, they just report $20,000. To fund drag queen shows in Ecuador. That'll go down. That's what your tax dollars are going for. Not buying uniforms and ammunition, not your children, volunteered for military service and going, and we will find money that if your daughter needs an abortion, will pay her travels. You go into abortion, but we can't give her body armor
State Dept. Funding Drag Performances in Ecuador
"Yesterday, Fox News got the scoop that the State Department is now funding, drag queens, south of the border. The report coming in, we're spending $20,000 of our tax money to fund a drag queen theater in Ecuador. So understand what's happening here at ladies and gentlemen. Understand what's going on. The Biden administration is sending your tax dollars and their placing your tax dollars into the thaws of Ecuadorian drag queens. Now, my question is, why are we doing this? We shouldn't be funding drag queens whether they're north of the border south of the border inside the border. If men want to put on pantyhose and grab a feather boa and shake their groove thing, then that's perfectly okay. It's America. You can do that, but don't use my tax money. Don't use my tax money. To promote this kind of debauchery. But it just seems to me and grace baker had, I don't know, I'm just thinking out loud. It just seems to me that of all the people that would be upset about the fact that we are using our money to fund Ecuadorian drag queens, it would be American drag queens. Now follow the logic here. Okay. I mean, they've been hit just as hard with inflation as the rest of us, right? And I got to tell you, it takes a lot of money to buy the gallons of makeup and glitter they need. Feather boas to get themselves gussied up. That's

It was done on September 23rd through the centro equatorial, North America. Nor did they have any Kano.

Gordon Chang and Sebastian 'Red Team' a Hypothetical Cold War II
"Red team. So that U.S. Army concept where you're trying to think like the enemy. When the war kicks off and some nations decide to robustly support the Ukraine, especially the British, the Baltic states and Poland, and Poland says we have Soviet era equipment. We have MiG 29s at the Ukrainians know how to fly. We are happy to quote donate them to Ukraine. If America backfills and replaces them with the F-16. First noise is out of the Department of Defense. Oh, absolutely will do that. And within four days, the Biden administration, the State Department with the arrogance of almost post colonial sense, say we don't think the Ukrainians need those. So we know better than the people who are actually fighting what they need and they renege on the deal with Poland. In terms of quote unquote, American leadership, how does Beijing look at that 72 hours? You know, and it was not only The Pentagon. It was, I remember blinken, the Secretary of State, actually said, yes, this is something we're going to do. I think they look at it at Biden and say, Biden was intimidated by the nuclear threats of Putin. And so therefore Beijing worked. It worked. So that's really been a bad deterrence message. When Biden took nukes off the table, then Putin said, of course I'm going to invade. And that has been the lesson for China. The other lesson that China got from this is that the sanctions, yes, they've hurt Russia, but they haven't stopped Russia. And China is thinking, western sanctions, even if they dare to impose it on great China, they're not going to stop me from doing whatever I want to do. So I think those are the lessons that China has taken away from the war. They're not the lessons that we want them to take away, but it's the lessons that, in fact, they have taken away. It's not what you want. It's the facts on the ground, and that's why we listen to Gordon.

It really makes you pegs the question. How many seats in the Senate? How many seats in the House of Representatives? How many governors mansions would we control if we had a fair fight? If we had a fair fight against the left, what would the country look like? Maybe this is one of the reasons why they have felt so confident going into these midterms. Maybe this is why they don't slow down and they're driving us off a cliff. Inflation open borders, how many other tricks do they have up their sleeve? From manipulating our elections to interfering directly into the discourse of the country. We saw it firsthand, we have the evidence we have the goods, I think our lawsuit would be very compelling. We have damages and we have direct off a cliff engagement on multiple social media sites and now we know why. The Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency and the State Department inexcusably targeted my own social media. Right here, I'm a threat to the regime allegedly, supposedly I'm such a threat to the federal government because I ask questions about an election because we call out the nonsense of what's happening in the federal government, there's a list of us together, as I've mentioned, James Woods, James O'Keefe, Rick grinnell, Breitbart News, Eric Trump, gateway pundit Donald Trump Jr., all of us together being suppressed and silence, millions of times.

And so then the United States Department of Justice run by the kraven Merrick Garland sends in a S.W.A.T. team. That's right, a S.W.A.T. team. Mark, how could this man's name? Let's get a picture of him up on stage on screen. By the way, if you listen to conservative media and they are not at least focusing one or two segments on this story, send them a message. This is one of the most outrageous things I've seen in quite some time. Father of 7, Mark hawke, with 7 kids, had his entire home rated as if he's some sort of narco drug criminal as if he's some sort of cocaine paddler as if he's smuggling fentanyl into the country. Now, in a scenario where you believe he did something wrong, of which I see no evidence. He did anything wrong. Zero. The civil case was dropped against him. The local charges were dropped against him. Why don't they just show up via his attorney on Monday morning with one or two agents say here's a warrant for your arrest? Sir, will you please come? Now, instead, they go shocking awe into this guy's house. As if they're trying to take out Osama bin Laden.

"So how much can you say. This cable is evidence that the by the administration failed to act on intelligence that it had to make this evacuation reach more people. Well i think. I can't comment on the timing of prediction Because what was it. Play was the morale and the The readiness of the afghan army to defend kabul and defend the other parts of the country. And that definitely collapsed faster than i think. Almost anyone could have predicted what i do. Know as diplomatic observer is that there were parts of the us withdrawal decision and our messaging. That made it very likely that that collapsed would happen and that it would happen relatively quickly. We'll let me play a clip of joint chiefs of staff chairman. Mark milley on wednesday reacting to other published reports. That intelligence had warned them of what's happening now. Let me make one comment on the intelligence. Because i'm seeing all over the news. There were warnings of a rapid collapse. I have previously said from this podium in sworn testimony before congress that the intelligence clearly indicated multiple scenarios were possible one of those was an outright taliban takeover following a rapid collapse of the afghan security forces and the government. Another was a civil war and a third was a negotiated settlement however the timeframe or rapid collapse. That was widely estimated in ranged from weeks to months and even years following our departure. There was nothing that i or anyone else saw that indicated a collapse of this army and this government in eleven days does millage description sound either credible or adequate to you. I think. I don't want to describe what is credible right. Because i spent a career working with intelligence estimates and what they have to be is one element among many for policymaker to make a decision An intelligence estimate is not something that you could. Actually you know you cannot claim that it has to be right In one hundred percent what has to do is indicate that the policy. Where are the problems where the weaknesses. And where i think. The embassy cable weighed in it said our intelligence estimates are pointing in a certain direction. Which means that contingency planning for those weaknesses should be our highest priority. The new york times is reporting this morning that the united states has rushed troops and diplomatic reinforcements to the kabul airport to speed up visa processing for afghans and that american commanders are negotiating daily uses that term negotiating daily with their taliban counterparts. The former insurgents they battled for nearly two decades to ensure that evacuees can reach the airport unquote from the new york times so as a former. Us diplomat in kabul. Can you give us insight into what negotiations with. The taliban might be like right now over. What specific asks and with what leverage on the us side. Some of this. I will say is So astonishing to me When i served there of course this was This was a city that. Us forces and us diplomats could go into all parts of it was never fully safe but we did not have to negotiate with the taliban to go to the airport on a road that is actually quite short. The airport is pretty much inside the city. I'm sure the negotiations will center on american citizens first and foremost That's our responsibility. But also on those who are carrying a papers that show that they have refuge with u s and nato allies Those and of course..

At least several new developments are worth mentioning protests against the taliban or spreading at least one violent. Crackdown on the protesters is being reported. Important in its own right but also how will that affect taliban decisions about how free movement movement to the airport will be and the wall street journal is reporting on a state department cable sent last month from about two dozen people working at the.

Those two senior officials are going to hear an unfiltered criticism of policy matter and the journal describes the cable as the clearest evidence yet that the administration had been warned by its own officials on the ground that the taliban advance was imminent and the afghan army may be unable to stop it but reportedly the warning was for after august thirty first..

And that was a big success huge. It was huge We owe frank wanting thing in. This isn't just religious freedom. But remember what i said out of religious freedom flows so many other rights which is why by the way our framers the framers of the constitution put it in the first amendment. It's not just an afterthought it is right up there as important we have something called the geneva consensus declaration thirty four thirty six countries that came together and said we are pro-life we are unequivocally pro-life and that happened on our watch and i had to go out and get some countries it was here. They sent me to get the easy countries like saudi arabia. And so if i was talking to them and talking to the princess who is the ambassador to the us but they signed the document saying that they were pro-life because we knew look trends. It's like you said frank Dare win when republicans come in. It's just different than democrats. We are pro-life day one. We institute mexico city language. We really promote religious freedom. There are things we just do different. That's why there's two parties and so of course when they came here. Nate tore down the geneva consensus but we did have some great successes.

"Her answer a look back over the weekend and over the last year his passing more than a dozen mass shootings across this country. Four thousand more people shot and killed by guns twenty twenty compared to the year before is their crime problem in this country i would say certainly there is a gun problem. And that's something the president would say and their communities where local violence and community violence is an issue. And that's one of the reasons that we have proposed and have now are implementing funding for community violence prevention programs across the country. I will say that we don't often highlight and you just gave me the opportunity to the fact that between mass shootings mass shootings that get a lot of attention that we lower the flags. There are hundreds thousands of people who lose their lives. And that's one of the reasons. The president will continue to advocate for the senate passing Bap universal background checks but also advocate for actions in states where we have seen The greatest level of activism over the past several years so. Let me translate what. I heard what i heard is mass shootings to come after your grounds. We just need crime to come after your guns. Let's fund the police. Then why have more crime. Then we could come after your guns. See how it works. All make sense right. They don't need mass shootings. All they need is shootings gun violence. Well if you take the police away you'll have gun violence. The problem is in guns and everybody knows this and you know this is old news. But why do we have all this epidemic of violence because we had it. Being encouraged encouraged by democratic politicians. Were telling people to go out into the streets that you need to get up in their face right. maxine waters that we need to have more protests. You know more more more and so where does all this come from. It comes from them encouraging it and defend the police gone demonstrate in the street defend. The police are the two messages right well. What does that result in violent clashes in the street. So then they're gonna use that as a reason now to limit guns because we have crime every day we violence every day and it has nothing to do with with the change in the police has. Let me ask you a question. Are there more guns. If we have an uptick in violence by twenty percent for sake of discussion did we have twenty percent. More gun ownership. Is that y. I don't think so. I don't think we have more gun ownership but the reality is the people going in acquiring firearms legally. Those aren't the people creating this chaos. This is this is created by you. Know the defunding. The police movement and all of this Encouragement of rebellion to authority is where this is coming from. And so you know the the claim there. We have too many guns. It's the same old saw but you can really start seeing the connecting of the dots. Here people say why would they be interested in defunding police. Well if defunding police is the key to disarming you which we know they want to do they want you disarm. They want you defenseless. And so if they can. If the key to defend disarming you is to get the crime rate to spike and of course people are buying guns in response right. So they'll say look more gun ownership more crime and they'll try and tie them together in a way that isn't.
