Inflation price talk about that more today you informed and now this is now your home secular secular rep about what you say we are monitoring what's happening in New York. Specific Brooklyn subway. We know about 60 people injured others shots fired there been at least five people who were shot.

There was also some kind of smoke device used inside subway car, so we are monitoring that cellular live broadcast. We got RT whatever that press conference does begin the monitor it if there's news that is necessary for the country. Here's were talking to people in all 50 states around the world. We will of course report that their thoughts or prayers are with those who have been injured and whatever it is, would be a horrendous moment.

As we continue to monitor that I want you all to know that right now that we've got what is affecting the entire country right now is the inflation number. See Sgt. Saki come out before the release of the numbers this morning and she's calling it Kunz price hike as you heard in the opening of the broadcast. Here are the numbers look overall really gives this. The second segment broadcast with Harry Hutchinson just really break down what these numbers mean and what they are on track to do for all of you out there is affecting everybody does matter where you live. It doesn't matter your ZIP Code and it certainly is worse in some places than others. I want to hear from you at 1-800-684-3110 do you buy that this is Putin's price hike or is it binds price hike that's that's the real question. How is it affecting you. Your job, your family, 1-800-684-3110 because those are the important stories to tell, is how it's actually affecting Americans.

We can look at the numbers. Of course you can even figure out what this is not good, but I think it's important for people out there to hear how it's affecting use, gives a call 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110's right off the bat. I look at this number she got consumer price index up 8.5% in the year through March. That is the fastest inflation rate since 1981. What happened in 1981, Pres. Reagan took the oath of office. Pres. Carter was defeated so it was the Carter years we have to go back to the late 70s and early 80s to see inflation at this rate, and the numbers don't always tell the full story, as will get into in the next segment. The broadcast which she might see is very high numbers. For instance, at 8.5% through the year. Where could that number go if we stay on this track it secular state, a .5 and second just be out 9.5 really get into that next segment broadcast so as we take your calls a 164 3110 energy prices up 11% in March. That's on top of what they were Artie up 32% year-over-year, 32% year-over-year gas in the month of March 2018 percent, up 18% in the month of March and they are blaming Putin not taking responsibility themselves to do things that will help the American people.

We have a lot of phone calls coming in already. I want to talk to 164 3110. Unfortunately these numbers don't even tell the full story that's over debris expert Harry Hutchinson, Dir. of policy was an economic expert to break this down further for you as we take your phone calls at 100-684-3110 and let me encourage you to support the work of ACLJ. Later the broadcast rejoined by Rick Cornell. The State Department has evacuated all US persons nonessential US personnel from Shanghai. What's the story there, why, why do we keep evacuating our embassies and consulates around the world under the bind station into that Rick later on in the show gives a call one 800 684 31 tenant support the work of the ACLJ NACLJ.org another way can do it, share this broadcast of your watching with friends and family.

The American Center for logistics were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Rejecting those for their faith covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help in the way comes 100 constitutional and only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We've created three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed.

Jesus powering the right question for you,/secular to your phone calls as well. 1-800-684-3110.

How is it they should affecting you.

This idea that it's Putin's price hike I believe is binds price hike in the data actually shows that well before we put sanctions on Russian oil and gas in there before Russia launched a larger invasion of Ukraine because remember they were Artie invading Crimea in eastern Ukraine. There were Artie fighting there since the Obama administration but the idea that the numbers are just so staggering that the White House yesterday came out before the release to basically set the tone that yesterday to see very high numbers or to blame it on on Vladimir Putin were not to take responsibility and and I don't think that the American people think they want some solutions we offer. What are you going to do to bring down this inflation because remember early on.

This was just in February's not too long ago when Lester Holt asked Pres. Biden about this. The idea of this being temporary, which with the bind ministration put out by eight back in July said inflation would be temporary and a lot Americans wondering what your definition of temporary as well. You're being a wise guy would understand that your job, no answer there. That was before Russia invaded Ukraine gives a call 1-800-684-3110 also know how inflation is affecting you because it's so important. Tell those stories is not just numbers on a page. There bad, but how it's affecting you will write to Harry Hutchinson at Harry to see the consumer price index rising 8.5% in the year through March. It's the fastest inflation rate since 1981, and it really that was coming out of the Carter years I so a little. It's been a long time just American people felt inflation like this but you talked about the Trent in our meeting before we were on the air today and that number is even more disturbing and worrisome. When you pull this out over a year, absolutely. So I think it's important to keep in mind that the current inflation rate is 8.5%, the highest inflation rate since 1981, but the projected inflation rate going forward. Throughout this year and into the early part of next year is at 14% annual inflation rate and so what we've seen is exploding inflationary pressures in the energy sector commodity sector food sector housing sector and fertilizers sector, and so that really means that the American economic house is on fire and it has been set ablaze by the Biden administration's policy failures. They keep looking for someone else to blame. So the real question becomes winning if they will become adults.

Do they prefer, for all time to remain toddlers only think the answer is yes, they prefer to remain toddlers they want blame pollutant they want to blame greedy oil companies. They want to correct the blame a greedy technology companies. Everyone but themselves. So if you look at the underlying sources of inflation. It is fueled by a number of things.

Clearly, the Federal Reserve has engaged in an expansionary monetary policy equally clear the Biden administration has engaged in an inflationary approach to the budget.

Keep in mind we passed recently. Last year, $1.2 trillion for infrastructure except there's very little infrastructure in that particular bill. So at the end of the day the Biden administration effectively has engaged in a deliberate policy of fueling inflation, airline prices have risen 24% year-over-year 11% in March. Energy prices have gone up 11% in March and while all of this is going on Jen's sake. The President's press secretary stands before the American people while the band plays on and blames it on Vladimir Putin so one of the things I think that the American people need to do is demand that Jen's sake finally grow up generally play it for you again a few destroyers of the broadcast Matthew should double down this throughout the press conference over and over and over again.

Putin Putin and get your they can play a role but it this is already happening before the invasion of Ukraine so it's not is that the only factor ended. That's how to do. It's 100%. Russia's fault they love blaming Russian Lord Lord knows I love putting everything on rush I actually saw a news article out over the weekend. That said, there looking at all Russia might interfere the midterms there Artie building that narrative they know they're going to get killed in the midterm elections. Okay the Democrats they know it's not good for them right.

Things are trending read this lately say if the election were held today to be in really bad shape, so there Artie started the use Russian ignoring of course China which really get into the canal.

The second half hour of the broadcast. But I want to play so you understand this is coming from the matter is not written is June sake double and triple down on Putin because of the actions are taken to address couldn't up in price hike. We are in a better place than we were last month, but we expect March CPA CPI headline inflation to be extraordinarily elevated due to Putin's price hike you to go to Howard in Oklahoma on line 5.

They are looking to secular on the bottom on our economy is more serious and that are fertilizer it gonna be 100 million pot last week for you to learn. We spent $1320 attend this spring. Phosphorus went from 475 but turned over thousand and it's been that way across the board are inputs for crops chemicals rep anywhere from 35% to hundred and 50% over a year ago at the same time if you can get the farm economy, which is huge part of our of the US economy very important to see basically Howard in everything you need to know about double and are commodity prices are technically we can still make a profit, but our risk is most farmers cannot borrow enough money to operate on right now.

This discusses the pleasures of people to figure out the bar more money. Interest rates are going up as well so that money what it's not as easy to get now and in the gym. You look at these numbers because the consumer prices looking everything you can combine, but when you get down into the weeds. It's much higher than that 8.5 acreage document for certain things I can guess it went up another 18%. Just last month absolutely so fundamentally we are in an inflationary market, there is an inflationary surge that still coming that will indeed hit the food sector. So part of the issue of course is that the Biden administration when they took office in January 2021.

What did they do.

They shut down.

For instance, the Keystone pipeline. Guess what, they also approved of the North stream pipeline allowing more Russian energy to flow to Europe, but after the Biden administration shut down the Keystone pipeline after the Biden administration gave US energy independence. Now what is the Biden vent administration trying to do. They're trying to buy petroleum from Canada.

Both cars if you are now buying petroleum from Canada you have to ship it in rather than use a pipeline which is both more economically efficient and also more environmentally efficient and so what we have done over the course of the last 12 to 14 months is what we have by deliberate policy choices made by the Biden administration strengthen President's hand. He is actually looking at more cash in the Russian bank account now that he was last year at this time fly because the Biden administration made an affirmative decision to make. Vladimir Putin richer, and in the Rue ruble did initially Tumble but now it's back. It's back right where it was before the invasion of Ukraine, if not stronger like like hearsay, so the idea of the sanctions that we put on the Job I said all this is going to affect us Americans.

We need to do it. I think people bought into that their ops then have the effect of the Russian economy the way that they were intended. So I think if there is a rethink everything, but I would like this here what steps could they take and really admitting about what steps could they take to actually start believing this because you're the first time when Lester was asked about this in February. The presence of him being told. This will be over with you later to the year I was to not II think your analysis is spot on what the administration could do affirmatively is beginning to open the oil and energy spigot in the United States that would then send a signal to the market that prices long-term are coming down.

That would then bring down the prices in the short term but this administration persistently refuses to do anything that's logical in my opinion they have to build trust with those those industries because they get a break before Congress. They scream out of and asking them to go out AL drill now you by next next year. Part of energy will shut you down. So why open up a new drilling figures to work, which would get the prices down interesting this fish be right back on second only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed.

Jesus powering the right question for you,/the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom. Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ for that. We are grateful. Now there's an opportunity for you to help in any way comes 100 constitutional and security your calls to 100-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110. I want to play the soundbite from a June sake and end a quick update on what's happening in New York described by lessee right now the new NYPD has announced that this is not being investigated as an active care is not being addressed is an active care and of course the suspect is still at large, so they're not captured the suspect some indication because of these statements at their making that they they might have a likelihood of who it is. But I will still monitor it and of course there's a lot of Americans injured there and I will's will follow it and report updates as needed throughout the show today and if we need to get in tomorrow we will as well blessed religion sake certain owner of said state or she gets out ahead of what they arty were going to be very bad inflation numbers instead of talking about today, which officially a question about she got there yesterday and just started the blame game to Calista by five there's no question that energy prices continue to be month by month. I driver of inflationary data and we know that since the start of this invasion because of the reduction of oil supply in the global oil market that that I from Britain's is invasion that that is a big driver, remember we were energy independent. When Biden took office. It's because of his policies attacking the oil gas industry and get cancer Keystone pipeline. The permitting process of the list goes on and on their hostile they are hostile to oil and gas. This started well before any invasion of the Ukraine is started. Before we sanctions Russian oil and gas which I'm not even sure yet that we stop getting because I you and others like 90 days of of time and some that gases arty in transit so that's still coming in, but the only reason we were relying on other countries to get us energy sources because of policies by the by demonstration. They're the only ones responsible if we'd stadium energy independent prices would've been down and we could've cut off Russia because there was no need for Russian oil and gas. There's a need to punish the American people and the economy of for what Putin is doing and and everything would've so it's all goes back to policy that would let people tell their stories to because you hear the farmer the pressure of two and 300%.

That's different than what you just read in these numbers which are reminiscent you know it's up 8%, but you got it. This is all compounding on top of each month in each month and throughout the year 1-800-684-3110 if you want to share your story about how this is affecting you, whether it's your job, your home, your family, give us a call 1-800-684-3110 is to write to the phones Melissa in South Carolina online three hey Melissa and my rent going up hundred and $40 a month, and in addition all the other thing so I'm then actually have to move because attic he into the little race that I got for the year and I can afford to stay where Matt yes this is this is when it again when Washington DC in the Cyprus ecologist sharing that about your your own personal situation because they don't sue so often. These leaders need to see these numbers on paper and they think all units up hundred 40 bucks. That's a big deal for people to cover that is not the case. People budget out. You know the and and when the economy was good and through note the budget out okay. I can reveal arrays like I could. I can afford this but then you everything get so much more expensive that you compound all that's is not just the hundred $40 raise on rent a month if that everything is costing another hundred dollars extra month or $200 more month of spending on gas and oil and food so it all compounds together just like how the interest did the inflation us in the numbers do and it affects all aspects Eli feet of having to move yourself, which again is mostly but I was not. Not a pleasant thing LUV can find another place to go. This more affordable 164, 31 to let me go to Don in Texas online one tell the difference. I strayed on a laptop 76 and I want people in world of fixed income and I'm telling it. Carol we feel both are vehicle at $60 an act out the hundred and $20 and only go to the grocery store we can't bow what we walked about. We Out what we can ward back and you know, ever since I've been alive. The Democrats always seem to blame something else on their generated problems and what you just said there is American on income which which you know you knew what you have. It's Monty plan that you're going to the grocery store you can't buy what you want to buy yet to buy what you can buy descent is the message that the American people is resonate with the American people right now and if they even have what you want to buy sometimes wish they might not even have because you are the blame supply chain.

All this goes back to energy. I want you understand as a producer will pointed out when they blame prudent and say it's his fault, but everything face rent has put his fault that then consider changing policies understand that that's a dangerous part of this that same week.

Even because of prudent order to do this to alleviate Rimadyl it would take another dead take another tack maybe will and you will again will really work with the oil and gas companies. Let them know were serious about letting them get back to American energy independence. We realize that our policies agreement new Deal Democrat style policies aren't working right now for the American people and that's our job is to care. The American people first and foremost, so you look into that.

But note they're beholden to their own by the left wing of their party that she was controlling on the Democrat party so they have no solutions for you. It's just a blame game and it's always been a blame game there to blame. Losing the election arty looks like on Putin and not because of inflation, but because of your Russia is getting inside that's already a narrative building yet again.

Because Republicans look like they're going to take back the house and maybe the Senate as well so they have to start blaming Russia. They ignore China completely tribute into the record. Let me take a one more phone call for going to art fix up our first half-hour second half hour coming up so to Linda in Kansas online for Aland are not taking my call to Chicago I will let you know that all I doubt I have to drive that my and our Dr. Manet have sampled and my the car that is more than triple and I am on a big, I wish I had landed that night and Paul, if you had announced a business deals with Ukraine or China.

You might but you know most Americansdon't have business deals with Chinese Communist Party members and you know oligarchs but that you it's it's that's why think Washington can forget very quickly especially the Democrats and the left. These are just numbers on paper such as $50 more here hundred dollars you start adding that all up the hearing people's voices. This is real. This is the number one issue for Americans is there make how to pay for what they need, just the basics to conduct life if either family to get to work so they can get paid to keep doing that I was talking about extras right now is just talk about what they need to live out where were at work in states with ACLJ were the big matching challenge month. Let me be clear before I tell you where to donate.

I only want you donating your good financial position condoning ACLJ.org W Petra donations is a great time to support our work. If you're financially able to ACLJ.org second half hour. The American Center for on critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate, it will be $10 becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms most to you and your family. You forgive today online keeping you informed and now is Jordan secular top. The second broadcaster were monitored with happy New York City in Brooklyn in the subway station and what happened. The subway car shooting. Some have a gas incendiary device used at sites report out 16 people injured. We don't have a lot more about the 6/25 I think were were actually shot that suspect is still at large.

They announced on the one hand they're not investigating his act of terrorism, but they also are not ruling from the NYPD. Not really any motives out so still leaving open ended that you really when I can pass judgment or speculate here is this is an ongoing situation where there are hunting for this person but we will keep you updated throughout the broadcast today if it's necessary and horse tomorrow as well.

Our prayers with those who were injured and in those individuals who were injured. I hear the reports are just injuries. We don't have a lot more than that I would talk about. Of course these new inflation numbers retirement annexes recruit now. Some of this stuff fleeing embassies and consulates by the by demonstration. Also, the blame Russian narrative in politics it's it's is bubbling up. I'm seeing it in a new sources how Russia might launch a campaign to influence the US elections, and guess who they're going to be hurting Democrats and who should they be helping all supposedly it's Republicans thinking that this is where Vladimir Putin though he's got a mess in Ukraine and he but you know what they're going to be influencing US/because I he really what Speaker Pelosi out by like there's been so much unity on Capitol Hill on federal fraud on the sanctions and on the action it's been taken to try and prevent this Russian aggression at if you calculated with the ensuing for him.

What's the big difference what was the big difference both at both parties are so they don't want to send US troops, both parties have said sin weapons in both parties of said you don't try to try to cut off the Russian economy so it's it's it's it's it's a scam, but they are blaming everything they cannot Putin we saw that with these huge inflation numbers only to some. Your phone calls now before the canal joined us the next thing the broadcast. Let me go carried South Carolina online to a carry good things about you held it out by affecting people I live in South Carolina small business owner owned a small welding and fabrication in Outlook as I will study and the price of material double last year and only one morning of pipe and her black iron pipe is seven to $800 when you go to bid the job you did. You have double material. The price of diesel for your truck you welding machine.

The welding gap.

If making the Price jobs so high, people to scan report and a trickling down for everyone. Everyone on the book, the business owner the customer can't get what they want to get done done because of the life of the material. The dog is just the next probably tiny fight. Plus you put it all together and in care. I really appreciate you explaining as a small business owner because of how it affects every single person.

Thank you really cost more to get so your price that a job for somebody they're saying you know I can for this right now. Let it affects if you got employees because you not get the job that you would because the prices are just too high to even turn enough profit to keep your business going. This is why it impacts every saving time, a decent gas every segment and every person is affected by this. Whether you are the business owner or you work for the business or your the consumer is everybody. And so the idea that the is blame Putin with the numbers were already going this way is absurd. This is going to go to a polity of the election still readable politics of the canal in the next seven broadcast to take photos 100-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110. Let me encourage you if you can always save and financially right now support work ACLJ Weaver matching challenge you can double the impact of your donation ACLJ.org that's ACLJ.org and again financially able to donate $20 a notice or demand sets. That becomes a $40 force ACLJ and that's our bread and butter your grassroots financial support ACLJ.org the American Center for Law and were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad. Whether it's defending religious freedom.

Protecting those who face covering corruption in the Washington bureaucracy and fighting to protect life in the courts and in Congress ACLJ for that.

We are grateful.

Now there's an opportunity for you to help in any way comes 100 constitutional and only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We've created three powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally sealed cases/secular tear falls at 1-800-684-3110. I want to go right back to patient numbers. Use of the politics of this to this place can we blame Putin to the presenters' inflation is also to be responsive those bad Republicans beating Democrats in the next election cycle is Katahdin Colorado online one.

He taught you don't ever get you called in and agreement of the people are calling in the same over here as well.

You know me but I cannot go that route businesses and were being impacted by this severely because we offer what would be. I get luxury services. She has a princess party covenant. I have a 1/4 photography company and everybody spending their money elsewhere upon your portraits and and parties and things like that because you know it's crazy how the games fuel prices have gone up so much. I used to spend $40 to go by tank up on out car that was stolen from you next week but had a bigger tank than the car I have now in the car have now $65 to fill up big grocery way for from about $100 every week really to $200 massive sex and again the service industry right service that your normal times, things are decent for people I'm greatest decent that you have the kids birthday party. Maybe bring photographer but you know you but you do these things but when things get tight type out you don't do it you got it yet provide the basics which is been able to get to work and and feed your family. Basically anything you close your family about.

I really appreciate how you call me and I appreciate people I should tell the this restores a record now is joining us now for acting director of national intelligence are our Senior advisor for foreign policy, national security, Rick.

We talked at this blame Putin which is how the White House went out with their messaging on inflation but is also starting to bubble up Rick in politics even yesterday reporting in the headline is here.

This is one we've been dealing with for it seems like eight years babysitting six years, the US assesses that Putin may increase efforts to interfere with the US midterm elections. Rick either to blame Putin for Democrat losses to really honestly if you look at the detailed and most Americans who are not familiar with the intelligent lingo are going to miss that. But when you look at the details of what they're saying because the anonymous sources yet again, though anonymous sources are telling you know some outlet media outlet in Washington DC who are running with this information, pretending like it is real or verified it unverified intelligence. It's anonymous. It should not be given the type of of weight that reporters are giving it. I think that the fact is that reporters are jumpy. They loved it messaging that that this started with the daily beast. They love that mantra that you should look at Russia and Russian disinformation money to thick to think first of all it's Chinese at the Beijing line.

If the Chinese hope that Americans and and journalist in America constantly say look at Russia.

The Chinese do not want anyone scrutinizing their relation with the Biden family so they are going to be very pleased to see the daily beast and others say that this is Russian disinformation look over at Russia. The Chinese left at the second thing is we have to remember that the Russian disinformation is just the new term for Russian propaganda will know what Russian propaganda it when you and when you use the work propaganda.

Everybody knows immediately that this is phony, fake information, and typical of what Russia got no one at the prize that Russian.

The Russian government pushes propaganda but instead, we call it disinformation because we want to make it different, but I will say this and finish with this almost exclusively the Russian disinformation the Russian propaganda was about our election policy issues. Our discussion around the election not the election itself. The Russians did not break into our our election system and change votes. There is no there the risk of that is extremely minimal because of our system. And yet, the media pretend that the Russian attack on our election is somehow with vote counting. It is with the discussion and largely on social media about the election sign is there any preset suite today response to the news that the US State Department ordered nonessential US government employees to leave Shanghai surveys says that would be the consulate there and he wrote I've never seen the states part of actually from so many countries in one year. US diplomacy is shattered under blinking and we should employ and use taxpayer dollars to fund anyone we call nonessential.

Let's walk through that first off, that the State Department always evacuate were relieving our and you talk a lot about how foreign service officers at the ID used to be there with you. Your brave you going to places that are tough and you're there to try and prevent that the bad at worse actions. But you know you are putting your life of people are putting their life online when they join those agencies and and now it it seems to be a difference model is run very clear.

I know a lot of pointer with others who are very brave and courageous to want to be an online but they are being told that I have talked to individual to her career official today just one were getting going and being able to solve a crisis or conflict, or getting pulled out whether Afghanistan or Ukraine or any other place. Now we all know that when there is a point of danger and there isn't proper protection for foreign service officers.

You don't carry gun they need to be evacuated, but many foreign service officers career people at the State Department sign up. The problem thought they want to be on the front line and were pulling them out to that and and getting rid of the pond at the two quickly is because it is not getting a lot of the news is all Russia Russia Russia so we kind of ignore.

I know that there dealing with covert is very strict there but you with a plot nonessential over that and what would you think the issue is that we have a compound we have a compound in China and we are able to control our foreign service officers and others who are there so this should not be a coded issue. I mean, when you look at the stat as well of. When you get cold dead. If you're healthy and your vaccinated. The percentage of theory of thickness, capitalization, or death is extremely well and so what we need to be able to do not be afraid of putting people on the front lines who sign up to do their job when they want to do their job. Don't call them early and pretend like it. The crisis that we can't control or handle you communicate and protect. Of course, everybody knows that. But it seems like there's a panic within the State Department and a first inflection to evacuate our people just when they want to be doing their dominant frontlines would be able to hear this a lot, Rick.

Throughout all these evacuations nonessential leave act, which is not everybody but is not a subject who does that usually mean and edit large compound like you talk about where we got a lot of afford service folks a lot of State Department folks will develop incredibly offensive to me of the taxpayer to hear that were pain people who are called nonessential Iran. The empathy in Berlin and I consulate in over my two years I played $19 million. Simply by not hiring people that other ambassadors before me had hired position had been built because I wasn't convinced that they were a central, and so I really can't tell you who.

An ambassador would say this person and so nonessential that I can do without them to fight the fact that I'm using taxpayer dollars to pay their salary. I find it offensive. I find it away and everything will ambassador should reject the nonessential worker if it nonessential.

Why are we paying them, why are you wasting taxpayer dollars to to pay someone salary who literally doesn't matter that the Thursday nonessential. I want only dental worker and then we pay them. If you are able to do a job that we need you to do here but you're talking politics really involved in your going around the country and that it took about Arizona for the vesicular to look at the Senate races were getting more and more that of the broadcast. And I know your phone that was closely and what's happening there.

The other new news out of Arizona with hole that just came out showing that Jim Lehman has really broken away at the remarkable hit got a double-digit lead over Mark Bernadette Schober like Masters he's heat up at Jim Lehman's up on television. Others are not. Jim Lehman got a lot of money now is way off. I think this rate could be over to get more more often appreciate Rick because it was Rick's foreign policy experience losses political experience right here in the United States is three times asset. The closer and closer we get the primaries succeed through the leading candidates are going to be rich, tied in a course directly with the present trump in their efforts and pack their retaken build on this and put it all together for Skype certain narrative that it Russia recent five nights go by that house, only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive.

What hundred 684 31 to really get into gear. We talked about is Russia Russia Russia blame what is actually happening on the ground in Ukraine.

There's been some changes by Russia, which are not things that look good for the Ukrainian people because of who the individual is either being empowered by put only 20 phone calls. First, we get to that was Westminster's onset with me here little Bruce in South Carolina online. One hey Bruce Logan Sekulow, like all of all the you know five years ago my wife and I started the company.

Second, in business and we've done very well with it and just in a years time. We are facing out having to liquidate that company because we are not able to stay afloat. Keeping the two companies go and they were actually in this, economic situation between fieldwork shortage and it's a hard to follow Sam what's going on with the economy right now this is you people are just usually start a second business five usually put the heart the Swinton and resources into that and then you can't find another issue point Bruce and I think that this is important because it it's the bigger story to its it's the inflation plus the fact that even finding people to work when you have the money to Pam when you can hire people is also very difficult so you add that together to ask her to do business.

And even if he could kick anybody to work there. What happens, the business closes for the hard work put into that in any get start hearing the stories all over the country from different people, whether they are business owners that work for company retired there all everybody is dealing with pain right now and and and again it's its impact. Everybody that I want to also present what you because all this being blamed on what's happening in in Ukraine and there is news that is important to to update you all on and and one reason why Smith Senior military analyst and West. They brought in a pretty tough at bad guy the Russians he was responsible for what happened in Syria and the atrocities there of civilians tell us about what what is change with his top commanders in Ukraine, the world must be fooled and think that somehow Putin is having second thoughts about the invasion or that he is backing away there during a reset in Ukraine.

Their moving troops from the north down to the south and east to hold on the land there because so far as been very humiliating for the Russian forces. One quarter of their Battalion tactile groups have been either decimated, are there no longer combat ready to what extent he is appointed Gen. Alexander did want to cough as the new theater commander for all of Ukraine. He was already in command of just the eastern and southern portion of the Russian forces in that country. He is now the supreme commander of all that is going on in Ukraine where Russia has lost thousands of troops so far and you are correct he was in charge of the air campaign and sit in Syria and they they Russian Air Force attacked people, including civilians all over Syria, but just in the city of Aleppo alone under his command. 25,000 civilians were killed by this general date they use these kinds of tactics they would target hospital civilian neighborhoods. Civilians fleeing the wars around and under DiBona Cobb. They would use airstrikes against a civilian target then they would wait into the first responder showed up and then they would launch secondary strikes to kill the first responders.

This is the kind of man that he is so we can kid ourselves. Will double down in Ukraine. They will continue to attack civilians and commit war crimes.

The apartment of this general is an attempt by Putin to to lick his wounds to consolidate his forces and to start over again. You've got a new blog up that the petabyte is correct foods, a war criminal and what people need to know because they throw those terms out kind of generally in a way that we don't hear a lot of explanation on the news about what that means or what what exactly that he is guilty of right right in there is a difference between war crimes and genocide.

Genocide is trended to target at a group of people, ethnic, religious, whatever, and to trying to store them in multiple ways.

War crimes are under several conventions. The most prominent being the Geneva conventions where certain acts even though war is horrible. There are certain acts that are so horrible they are. They are actually forbidden even in war and what we see are the Russian forces committing these things on the ground.

Things like targeting fleeing civilians targeting hospitals targeting schools killing people at other soldiers after they surrender these kinds of things are are flagrant war crimes and this is what's going on there under the law of armed conflict in the Geneva conventions. These things are punishable.

You can actually be be arrested, tried to charge tried and convicted and we seen this happen in the past. The question is how will we bring about justice for Russian troops and Russian commanders in Ukraine because it goes from the top down a a commander in a in a military does not have to be present to be guilty of work on his is excuse cannot be.

I did not order it or I did not know that that defense was tried and it failed.

After World War II, what we are witnessing Jordan or war crimes as we speak all of Ukraine, especially the targeting of civilians in support of people and under international law and and while that then Russian Ukraine not Memphis ICC so jurisdictional issues would be something that is for the whole broadcast on legal theories on but you need to use a special tribunal set up and there is an entire set of international law set up, not just to govern. If you can go to war but once you're in a conflict right and and like you said that it's bad wars bad.

Everyone acknowledges this in an horrible things happen. Summer actions, but these intentional acts. If you if you do if you go in there and you don't pick any safeguards or any measures you can you know you could be held responsible, and if they're willing that the request will be in at the end of this is will the will the world be willing to actually do that right exactly as it will ultimately under the Geneva conventions. The west side of it would have to be in a body like the United Nations that would set up tribunals and investigate disk because as you said Russia and the United States and other countries are not signatories on the Rome statute which establish the ICC. The international criminal court but tribunals could be set up, but the United Nations is pretty weak and inept when it comes to these kinds of things so I'm not hopeful that that would happen but is forced the facts on the ground and the evidence that is there. War crimes are being committed, and they are clear violation not just of ICC rules but of international rules in the Hague and Geneva conventions which over 190 countries actually see the Geneva conventions is binding. So when you bring a kind of this kind of leader is Putin has that has already committed these atrocities in order these atrocities has no issue or problem ordering these atrocities. We also see a lot of the former leadership especially in intelligence now imprisoned in Russia so it's it's a total reset. So whatever we seen on the battlefield so far is horrendous. This could get much worse. Yeah the Russian doctrine of war.

As we witnessed it in Syria was brutal was again and against international law that same doctrine of war we are seeing in Ukraine and now he is appointed in general who was in charge of that kind of warfare in Syria and he will bring that same kind of warfare two to Ukraine and like I said I don't think Russia is backing down.

They are rearming regrouping photo that you check out Western earpieces up in ACLJ.R is a catchy title to assist Pres. Biden is correct something unique for you share with your friends and family from his ACLJ.
