On Saturday, a federal judge blocked Biden's lifting of Title 42. This is a huge ruling to ensure border security doesn't get worse. Jay, Jordan, and the rest of the Sekulow team discuss the ruling and crisis at the border. This and more today on Sekulow.
Border security came out on Saturday at District Court Judge was a multistate challenge to the by the ministrations ending of title 42 states argued, is you give us time to put in comments of the administrative procedures act we see that time and time again in this administration, but another ministrations to where courts say listen, you can't just remove these big policies because the CDC decides all of the policy should be over now because of the impact the removal of the policy has you at least have to give states were impacted time to comment so that you have to go through their comments at least understand that they have objections. Some states might say they agree but but that unit do that here through the administrative procedures act, and so this is been put on hold notice since this economy when for the by the administration because while they are going to challenge this in federal court that they did not file an emergency appeal right which they could have after Saturday or ruled by District Court Judge they did issue the state Bureau District Court judge should not be that responsible for the entire immigration policy of the US. The typical line, but they didn't say let's appeal it today. No date said we will ultimately appeal to some shirts coming but what this means is that title 42, which would've expired today is still in place and can be used as a tool. Thank God for our border patrol and ice officials just to explain to you how significant of a tool it can be 1.7 people, 1.7 million people have been expelled under this policy since it began under of the truck administration. They enacted March 2020 and under the truck administration is also how to use the tool right other trumpet ministries. They were able to immediately expel 90% of the illegal immigrants to the border and asylum-seekers.
It puts a halt on asylum-seekers as well to kick it around by St. Dominic claim asylum 90 Goncourt fantasy that it's all based off the pandemic.
If you actually look at what the where the world news is right now in coven and some of the some of this regional news in the US it is hard to argue the that they have not declared this completely over. Know that little talk about index boost and all these different things and in the fall wave in the summer wave so it didn't even make sense logically based on how this administration has been handling coven that the CDC all of a sudden was going to say okay now you can open up your borders to people. It's also interesting is that in the political Harvard poll. This is interesting. This is regarding the title 42 expulsion policy. 55% of those polled of American adults oppose ending title 42, 55% want to keep title 42 in place as a protection at our southern border. So what you got is the bind administration is fighting against both. I think what the law is because I think the judge, the district court opinion is is a lengthy opinion. It was totally correct.
This was out of the Western District of Louisiana.
The judge was correct in his analysis, but also just the body politic is saying it's working it's at least a tool they have what is otherwise still an unbelievable crisis down there. So let's let that play out yet. I hear what is so important comes to title 42 is remember by keeping the people knowing by knowing that this is in place. It keeps a lot of the coyotes should try to do the mass migration because they know people not to just be released back into United lights in the lot here keeps the fennel out.
I mean their daily a lot more as the bind administration unfortunately isn't using the title 42. Power to the extent that the truck administration did like I said under the truck administration and the wall while the wall is being built. They were able use title 42. Keep 90% of the people out 90% under a legal order issued by this CDC a policy by the CDC. What the states of said is to remove it. Gotta give us notice and time and you gotta give us ability to comment that's the administrative procedures act we see that time and time again when these federal moves to try to be made weekly by the executive branch. They argue course, they're not subject to the ministry procedures act.
I also tell people I like on the World Health Organization issue which I know a lot of you target this in ACLJ action memo circulating among RT right now were on it were analyzing it were not ready to get into every detail with you, but we are on it folks. I just wanted you to know that support work ACLJ.org and be right back to secularity or phone calls to 1-800-684-3110 at 2000 683110. Title 42, just lead us to judge Summerhays with a Louisiana cheese typically block that the CDC moved in title 42, they would've ended today, so there were always migrants of the border and loosing the imagery of it that were ready for this to expire, hoping that we expired today, but we knew that there was this court issue because the states had brought a legal challenge saying we need time to comment through the administrative procedures act now, the DOJ just let this sit. They did say we are going to appeal. But here's what's interesting. While he said we're going to appeal the seal we got the authority to do this not through the administrative procedures act. It's a CDC power. So far it has not been emergency appeal of the identikit between Saturday and today they could still be filed is like an emergency radio. He would follow this emergency like a lesson. If the decision came out and made into that right side substance. I think there's Dick taking a breather because he title 42 is not gone, but then for their own base and and because the presence and power issues which is normal. Actually, through the executive branch there to fight back. Whatever policy this was because they always want to say that the President could just remove policies right that's a kinda normal think. Yes, he what I think what is so clear handling that unites how well this policy has worked and they don't follow policy and I think there's tension between the progressive part of the present space and that the more centrist part because a lot of Democrats. Harry have come out and said they were in favor of title 42, staying in place, especially border states, but not just border states, so he's got a real mixed bag coming from his own party. I think that is correct and so if you look at middle Americans, you will find strong support for the retention of title 42, many Democrats, particularly in both border communities and in the hinterlands they are concerned about the resources that will be used within their own communities with respect to schooling. For instance, with respect to law enforcement.
In addition, many of these illegals are bringing across the border. No marijuana, and math, other drugs, heroin, and so there are lots of associated problems. In addition to covert it so and so, keep in mind that title 42, was introduced why it was designed to reduce the spread of COBIT 19 and so you have the administration basically telling people to quarantine. This was months ago course and now they're saying oh we are going to want a lot immigrants come in who have not been tested for COBIT and basically they haven't been vaccinated. Nothingness happened to them but you can come in and perhaps will give you a pass to either El Paso or New York City. Why think this is the other issue here what it was gotta be so clear is that even people who think in his letter published saying we should declare the pandemic over and admit move on is that there is no follow policy here so it what if we remove title 42, even if you think it is time to say this pandemic is over. Which by the way out of the by the restrictions write a sale think a lot of the world is right to say, but why conservatives are saying and states. It's been over long time and the way things have gone back to normal in some places, but we don't follow policy exactly an event at the highest ever numbers last month, 224,000+ people and we know that there's a whole group waiting for title 42 to fall now but will be if Susie is now that this is happened is that whole group is been at the border waiting do because the bind ministration has not been as aggressive as using title 42 truck administration used its leverage 90% of people out immediately expel everyone so all those encounters 90% of those encounters were sent back home. The by demonstration certainly has not been that aggressive in enforcing the policy, but it's still been one of the few things customs and border patrol's been able to use and this would under this massive administration. Yes, many custom and border patrol Association and the ice agents said the title 42 is they called it essential to their maintaining some kind of decorum in order at the border. And what's so ironic to me Harry as a policy matter is here you had a policy granite was under the trump administration that has been successful. That could be even more successful if implemented, and by an immediate reaction is always trumps we have to get rid of it. I think that is correct and so what you have on the part of the Biden administration is an illustration of their commitment to childishness. So in other words, this policy is working.
It is helping the American people. It is protecting the American people from harm in Missouri in Louisiana and other states and yet the Biden administration basically says let's go ahead and reverse this policy and unleash a tidal wave of consequences through out America in terms of school systems which are already overwhelmed in terms of drug trafficking. In terms of other consequences. And I think judge Summerhays offered a brilliant opinion in this particular case because he suggested, at least implicitly, that the decision by the Biden administration to reverse title 42, was arbitrary and capricious. It was not well thought out. It is really designed to help Joe Biden's ideological left-wing base and it is not grounded in the best interest of the American patient to what the DHS secretary says my office talking about title 42.
Take a listen. We recognize that with the end of title 42, there very well may be an increased search in migration and we have to equip them with the resources and capabilities to address that increase as well. This is something that might have happened months later it was happening. A month later they had no ability to do it. They have not been handling it under title 42, we saw the highest numbers last in April ever in history of reported since the been recording those numbers 224,000 people that's under title with title 42, and in the week. You know, it's unclear. This administration is not taking it seriously. They have again if they've attacked the border patrol agent they've attacked ice like that of other law enforcement. They've demonized them as well. Here here's our our biggest concern. It's not so much.
If title 42 is able you know existed. Perpetuities is not going to.
Ultimately you have to you could declare the pandemic is over. Even this court decision. If you go to the ministry procedures act. Again, just a couple months maybe maybe 90 days but ultimately ultimately will we gotta push for think why the elections are so important in November and it's something that the if if there is a Republican takeover, not just the house but the Senate that they could put pressure on the administration more through the power of the purse to do more enforcement at the border. I'm not sure.
Conference and immigration reform through that. I don't think so. What I think you can do is get use the power of the purse if you got control about the house and the Senate come January to make sure that they are doing more at the border and it's not just about the people those numbers are staggering. But it's the drugs it's the illegal activity, you know, for every time they've got it. They got a deal with 15 those larger groups of life force for 500 people that that the drug cartels know that's where the focus is the use all these individuals to to take our resources at the border and shifted to the people and and that's what they send in and utilize the drug mules and get to coincide with that. So I this whole idea that just about the people. It's not on Friday we had our offices represent instruments of the northern tribal countries arose El Salvador. They were to talk about how under present from the like. The deals they may be present truck. They didn't want to keep losing their citizens to drug cartels. So what that woolly diplomats and I won't name, he merely was talking about said is that for leaderless people. Five to $10,000 is what in our country if they got five or $10,000 as a people with the resources we don't really want to lose those kind of individuals but to for every one of those people paying five to $10,000 that the drug cartels are making as much or more often the human smuggling to the border than they are drugs and other illegal activity and so we are boosting by allowing this constant churning of people to the border and these coyotes we are funneling money into massive paramilitary style drug cartels. You know you right in the bind ministration in their briefing to the court said that title 42 is a public health order, not a border security, order, and therefore the decision to lift it must be based on public health and and said the CDC is that after considering her current public health conditions and increase available ability of tools to fight coded the CDC directors determined that an order suspending the right to introduce Margaret into the United States is no longer necessary.
That is doublespeak carry a letter saying it's increasing right now. You are absolutely correct but basically this particular issue illustrates one thing and one thing only and that is a lack of seriousness on the part of this administration in terms of how they deal with the coven pandemic and also how they deal with the border and if you look at the work of a DHS secretary. Mallorca's it is basically laughable and it included of course the disinformation Bureau and by this ties into into what you're doing ACLJ actionable work organization situation where they may try to get global control of how my going to put in the chat a bit asking. We are on this issue regarding a memo out internally, through ACLJ three sales action Toronto Seco. We are fearful close to 100 684 31. Target some of the issues, but if you got questions about title 42 of the border. The border security. The, the affected title for two can still be used. As of right now by our customs and border patrol agents and that was set to expire today. The bind ministration is not going to renew it with the court step. The court stepped in and said you can't do it like this, I'd love to take her because of that 100-684-3110.
His house is affecting you.
What if the drugs whether the people interviewed, especially a time when inflation in it. If these are tough and economics are tough already when you put the economic strata of of individuals. I like this I get it sent like an easy time to just immigrated to the US and pay the bills, but we've also got some international work to get into as well be a three unit.
We do a lot of work at the United Nations.
By the way were not ready to make that announcement yet, but were about to expand network brother drastically. We probably will make that when you were told in the yeah probably not but you know we are in line with that member on Friday we were hosting our second of all, be a whole series of continuing training programs in Washington DC for foreign service in your diplomats from around the world and redo it a couple of events for a higher level. Members of of the diplomatic corps and clinic ambassadors and deputies with that people like Mike Pompeo recruit LBL later the broadcast. And I know Sen. Haggerty still has conference and as well in exactly so we got.we do a lot of relevant office of the young all in DC so we gotta do a lot of work at the United Nations. As you know, it's a hostile environment. We do a lot of work in front of the human rights Council sometimes is the most cost below the councils of Assisi house using accounts for the ACLJ had this work up cc we've just completed three country reports I need important first to let medicine, Pakistan, India and Nigeria. What are we doing when we write these reports right side of the human rights Council. This is their 50th session and they will have agenda items that they that they are going to go over so we look at those agenda items and we see what kind with which agenda item we could do a written submission on and I miss 50th session we did one on Indiana Pakistan on and Nigeria and to comply with what again what does agenda items are one was violence against women. One was freedom of expression and one was on IDP's are internally displaced persons, and so we write these written reports and we highlight what's going on in these countries and particularly with religious persecution and in Indiana on freedom of expression, and we went after their anti-conversion laws, which basically don't allow Christians to share their faith at all and and we show how that violates the freedom of expression and of course you know we had Pastor Narron who is a pastor from Tennessee. There is slight American pastor and he was trapped in India just for this the same thing that the Hindu majority is going after Christians and wants to shut them down and leans over and out easily without amount, but is important safe in June you've done is you and these interventions Assisi has to week the second phase of this is oral interventions oral arguments before the UN Gen. assembly trader presentation and release. We can do those fire studios here. We can have our European team in Geneva. We've gone before to put sometimes with family members of clients who are being illegally held abroad in prison abroad and so there's different ways we can utilize it and and they're all effective subtypes affected Haverford steam there because they they resonate with a certain audience in Europe and then there sometimes it's their issues that we need to get out in more than that of the US so we want to make you more aware. So one of us.
What will do it at CC or me and get it. It is still this time where because of covert concerns you're able to duplicate more creative and what I think it is very close it, whether it's by video or whether you're in person they they are they are there locked-in with their regular listings by just the translation devices there listening and and you're able to speak all these different countries around the world and call out some of the countries whether there as well and are reports of actually made it into the a the HRC's final report. That's right, especially the country reports with UPR and they make it almost every single one of our reports makes it into this report.
So Elin has told us that they appreciate our reports and we will keep reporting on it as long as we have a place there today so that we were up against the other side of this that's committed to doing the these these reports is very left leg and it's very left-leaning and so they very much pick and choose how they want to do these. That's why think you and appreciates our reports just like how I think you appreciate our broadcast yes we take sides on issues but were also honest.
Again, if our site is has a tough shot at winning were on about that if if our site is a good chance of winning were were able to say that as well. We don't try to fool you would just say everything's going to be away and everything's hunky-dory. The same thing. There is you get these groups on one side and the columns of human rights groups with the very much pick and choose who they go after and most the time with her going after is you United States are allies with the Western Europe and Israel, no question. We also found in Pakistan we have a list with these on the screen is what it looks like, so we found rinse and statements made by the Europeans and of law and justice and NGOs special consultant status. We did this on Pakistan and we have firsthand knowledge of these cases because the SEC we have an office in Pakistan).
And that's another thing that's very important because we had actual cases night. I believe that that brings a lot of attention and specific attention to what were were seen in his reports, this one in Pakistan. We had a young girl he was 14. She was literally she disappeared after receiving over 40 text messages from her Muslim handwriting gone like a literally gone, they do not know where she has 14 years old completely disappeared after again today. She received over 40 text messages from a Muslim neighbor, which she had never received before and the police want anything and literally the courts won't do anything and then you contrast that with a Muslim girl who disappeared and within weeks she is found and returned to her family and the perpetrators are held accountable in court. But this little girl that we represent 14 years old and on for two years. The parents do not now and the police and the courts will do absolutely nothing. Why because she's a Christian minority child and that's the that's the exact reason why we then go to the United Nations that's correct to show these kind of on their they're not fair in Pakistan is not fair in applying their laws that all children should be protected regardless of you know whether they're Christian or Muslim or Hindu. They all should be protected and so were able to point these specific cases out and and encourage the United Nations to come in mind is Dan and we peel on on the HRC's we do three times a year on about 5 to 15 and then we deal with the UPR reports the country reports we do three about three times year 14 of those notes out there and there's a line with. That's a lot of work hundred reports, probably exaggerating about that folks 100 reports here generated by the American Center for Law and Justice to the UN just for the human rights Council and other related entities that is not all their national work. That's just the reports and the documents that were filing in these cases last one is India.
There, it's the anti-conversion laws right and and sell at Indiana. I had said about Narron and the anti-conversion laws that they Hindu majority. There has really gone after cracking down on Christians are asked when Nigeria said that in an email out of Nigeria today. By the way, so Nigeria's is terrible on their the seventh worst country in the world for persecution of Christians, we highlight that with the internally depth displaced persons, which is in the millions and how Boca prom and the flying herdsmen go after Christians over 46,000 killed 17,500 churches attacked in 2000. Christian schools attacked they go. That's why were fighting back at the United Nations. That's defend those who cannot defend themselves toward the Army right now. The number hit 100 million that is the highest ever displaced in the world to see you what's happened in Ukraine you look at why these situations across the world to over hundred million people are now displaced people and at that number is never hit that number four and so it came out to you and so I can continue that work there, which is when a working ACLJ.ornament WHO issue or get into it from starting out memo circulating among our team were on both ACLJ.org for decades ACLJ has been on the frontlines protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena.
The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us, ACLJ.org, where you can learn more about our life-changing work become a member today ACLJ keeping you informed and now is Jordan's secular secularity or from poster 100 C4 3110 and again we will talk about these issues I could to threat the shofar could alter the joyous presence of the statements it present. Biden made overseas is specific to Taiwan ahead of the pullback that we see there but also on title 42, let me just can update you because if you're just joining us a judge halted the end of title 42, so it's still in place under it for border patrol to utilize the District Court decision at Louisiana said that. Listen, you can't have in the states and filed against by the mistress of Kansas pullback this policy willy-nilly whenever you want, because it's such a serious policy you had go through the administrative procedures act, you hear that a lot in these cases, and that means you had to give times for states to comment comment about how it was going to affect them. If you do remove this policy, we seen a lot of numbers about how would potentially affect the judge reciting the numbers about what it could change up to 808-2000 people a day were still seeing record numbers before even with title 42, it would take out the expulsion power from a border patrol soup. So instead of having to process all these people into the United States or into holding facilities where you can have the spread of disease and by the white take out covert the spread of disease is still very real. These holding facilities of disc disease in general. When you've got all these folks in the CDC speaking with you know both sides of the right at once.
I they want everybody to continue to be massed up unanswered is and is not limited by the managing problem right and also to let all these folks are definitely unlikely that not been vaccinated, were elected man, but you not to let it see what the illegal crosses in an input of these asylum claims are things like that which that was the way they thought they can work around that you can't work around that under title 42, so I think what we see here for immigration purposes as this will be a long-term fix, because ultimately they can go to the administrative procedures act and remove this if they want to, they were able to do it today is fight will continue in court and ultimately what is so concerning why the elections are so important. There's a lot of primaries going on tomorrow night and big primaries going on is that if Republicans take both the House and the Senate. I think they could put financial pressure on the White House to at least put some informed enforcement mechanisms in place that follow up on title 42, whenever that does come to a close. Right now the issue is that it if title 42 is dropped.
They basically have no extra tools at their disposal so there is a run that every individual process every individual separate claim and you can't do.
Because of this mass expulsion at the border. Which of the trumpet ministration will say again how effective this tool can be 90% of the people goes there was a encountered were expelled immediately, regardless if they were seeking. If they were just illegal immigrants or if they were going to proclaim asylum. They were expelled immediately said just wait go through process and wait and I will tell you this whole idea that these countries are angry with us is wrong because when we open our borders to these human smugglers in these coyotes to bring these mass groups through we are allowing the funding and this is were given a green light to this funding of these drug cartels, which are much more than just drug cartels. Their paramilitary units that run vast majorities of territory throughout Central America.
As with what is a deputy head of mission as we can from a central from a northern tribal country out at you the idea of what we have MS 13.
These kind of that they are not just take a criminal.
They are not just a drug cartels military are like almost like the Latin American version of Isis how a militant they are, how violent that the level of violence and so you are these human smugglers are funding them so you're also not just isn't as bad for the people you're propping up drug cartels, which are church declaring war on governments in these Latin American countries so they don't like it either. When we say this greed like kind of come and go because they know then that the cartels of their fighting against arguably that much more well-funded inside their country cements the end.
To me that's the reason why this judge got this right paper, followed by an administration did not play by the rules. Now the repealing up with not doing an expedited basis and as we said the polling data shows well over 50% of the American people 55% oppose ending title 42, by the way, that includes a lot of Democrats. People know that removing this is an taken arsenal out of our border agents and that does not well for the country back more just a moment to say we are to you from poster 100-684-3110 at 2000 684-3110 record L joining us on play this because present by was overseas in South Korea was asked about Taiwan and kind of the interplay between Taiwan and how the US to respond to a Chinese aggression there versus how we responded in Ukraine to Russia.
Take a listen here despite eight very quickly you didn't want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily, for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that.
Yes you are is a commitment we made will of course it's not the commitment that was made. Actually, the commitment that was made is military assistance in the equipment but the rickets when called the strategic the US policies been called strategic ambiguity. And you know that's a good asthma so rising law for 40 years and that's a good price strategically ambiguous. What is that what is our policy in Taiwan. What is the actual policy right now is a license. I will think. I think that we have to call out Pres. Biden, and that question from the recorder which was an assumption erroneous assumption right away that reporter said. In Ukraine you didn't want to get involved.
For obvious reasons. Let's remember that the first Joe Biden policy in Ukraine was to offer Zelinski a ride out of Ukraine. He wanted to get the Ukrainians out of the way, which means that so that Russia had the ability just to do it.
They wanted to do get out of the way and remove Zelinski from that that is that is the original Biden policy, but now we have in this strategic ambiguity, which is really purposely evasive is what it should be called while were trying to do is have it both ways and what Joe Biden did was really unsuccessfully have it both ways. You want to be able to talk about America's strengths and our resolve in our commitment to democracy and the rule of law, but you also don't want to say that were going to get into a war with China and so it's this idea that you have to have incredible array of military action. Unfortunately Joe mind has the credibility part missing. He's not credible.
And yet he's trying to make a threat Rick microsphere two is on the on the the this kind of one China policy that gets discussed in the idea that we don't necessarily accept, but we recognize side China has oversight that we we recognize or acknowledge that China claims to have authority over Taiwan. The these statements I believe there is very important.
I don't want to just Irishman underscored with the present United States. It was Joe Biden says really go to war and then they have to walk it back at me that that it dedicate it, since at signal that they don't, he doesn't know what he's talking about and it's not clear the administration doesn't have a clear policy, or at least not briefing him on a clear policy. You're smart guy to get in trouble here tartan because you're asking the poignant question which is an eminent one China policy seems to be a little bit at where our ability or our desire to want to defend Taiwan are held Taiwan in some ways, and I think you're exactly right.
But the one China policy means China gets to decide its territorial issues, its sovereignty issues, and in theory that sounds right like a lien we want other countries to be able to figure out their borders, but what one child with one China policy really means is that China believes Taiwan is theirs and we are we the United States are just not going to get involved and we that's where we have this strategic ambiguity where we say one China policy, but were defending or wanting to defend were talking about defending Taiwan and wanting to have a closer relationship with timeline so literally you're asking the very good tough questions where diplomats tried to be ambiguous about well were trying to play both sides to recommence to this. If China were to make a move on Taiwan militarily. What does the US to and what does the rest of the world because getting into a war on conflict with China doesn't have a good outcome. I don't think this is just a morning of light are direct and sorry that it with Angel bind created this by his statements he's basically was saintly, said multiple times now, yet working respond militarily and get people thinking were never worked or not the included Ukraine is very what do you do if they get attacked by dealers. Are they listening to last. There is a no right to the heart of right into the issues, but I think the answer J is to go back. It is not like the indigenous question, but I'm really not.
You've got to have a credible threat of military action because if you have a President who talks about strength and what America can do now, what America won't do, then you don't get yourself in a situation where other countries are testing us. We know there wouldn't have been a war in Ukraine. Down somewhere in office because he would have said early signals of strength of what we would do when you have a weak President you invite all of these tests you invite all these people to push the envelope and that's what's happening with China right now little the reality is that America needs to be able to stand firm democracy, the rule of law. But the question becomes, at one point when another country sends intruders and nuclear armed country sends and screws are we going to say what is the threat of national security to the United States at the end of the day when I criteria is when are we in our people and our allies threatened is interesting. Randall on YouTube as this group are you Rick how is the bind administration going to defend Taiwan when they've already sold out to the CCP is a really great lesson plan also. Also, I think present she is looking at the Afghanistan debacle is a this is the guy that is going to try to defend Taiwan when he was proud to get 90% of the people out of the Americans out of Afghanistan, signaling that 10% would be left behind.
That's total weakness, and so again you got have a credible threat of military action, not just the threat of military action Rick. I wouldn't Take. That's just the domestic impact these all having received the inflation numbers were that were in the political season now big primaries tomorrow night in the other party seen some big primaries still waiting on some others, which is a little absurd. By the way, there was still that it's a vague you can still can't get in the house and it just shows you the when retirement lacks integrity issues and also getting our systems up to speed. The problems even in a primary care forgot who's one you know more than a week later and but but these issues Rick, I think they all get back to the kata courses were taught about the border issues in title 42 BC. If I trump appointed federal court.District Judge saving the country with title 42, a little bit on the immigration issue this weekend, but the DOJ is going that bind the O'Jays when you peel it we see again you what's going on in Ukraine is kind still main argument continue to sin, billions and billions of dollars over.
We saw some Republican senators step up and say no this is not right. Because we don't know where this money is going or how it's being spent and then then you add on to this it even more complicated situation which is how to deal with China. I mean and and how compromised. This administration seems to already be. If you're in Taiwan you're getting all these US resources that basically are you basically looking yourself like a mini Ukraine and you think I might get the resources at best, but at the end of the day that I come in to help me.
Even with this Biden gaffe I might get the resources to lay.
I think the you know Ukrainian people in the Ukrainian government would say that the bind administration was waiting to lay and you know again Donald Trump wanted to sell arms to Ukraine and Joe Biden is now scrambling giving them the arms, and I think that this is one of those situations where weakness breeds more problems and we talked about this a lot. But if you're in Taiwan and you have to be nervous about Joe Biden.
I hope that the American people understand Taiwanese Americans Ukrainian Americans Iranian Americans that when you have a leader like Joe Biden sending weak signals around the world. It's gonna get worse. Remember he took that with these the terrorist list and to who these then started bombing the UAE, a country that had literally signed a peace treaty with Israel and and yet now is getting bombed by Iranian backed terrorists and so you can't make this any Donald Trump literally brought as a great economy and world peace and Joe Biden has done the opposite existence a regular time. I'm looking at front page of the New York Times just pulled up just a chance bind, says US military would defend Taiwan and China invaded bind to begin new Asia-Pacific economic blood. Zielinski urges global business elites to punish Russia further. This is all happened since Pres. Trump left office work were faced with Russia and China in ways we never imagined that we appreciate your comments.
By depositing it Rick at your request that World Health Organization just in passing last week on the broadcast were audit folks are we with our team's research exit through ACLJ action first and rear legal team on it as well about so that you know the truth, so we would get all that together really get the facts to you on on what the by the ministrations planning and not planning as were truth tellers, with the WHO ever getting as much info as we can before restricting into the details with you know your want the info we want to get to precise exact info and get as always, I want to support our work in ACLJ.org does not enumerate pieces up to the church without leaking up in ACLJ.org will be right so at a time literally in the world where there is potential military conflict with the United States and two nuclear powers at two of the world's other major nuclear powers of the United States every yes you have some other nuclear powers in the world that not with the kind of arsenals of these two countries have retired. But of course Russia. I which is better could serve the entire time with the conflict in Ukraine and now I China who is not happy with the remarks by Pres. Biden which they are. The White House is trying to spit because usually you know, if you make something totally kind of off-the-wall, totally inaccurate or outside of US policy though say that it was good that he does with too far though actually think that you really clean it up. In this they they said no. We met with resources so would be a similar to like Ukraine and that is not of course what it said. Like Joe Biden said because he was asked with US military get involved to defend Taiwan but it sounds like that when you get involved in something more than just city weapons, but that was there walk back so that we got the United States in this economic situation the space to these issues at the border faces issues with the drug discovery and killing Americans coming out of a pandemic. They throw monkeypox on you and then on top of that to potential nuclear wellbores because Ukraine got over it. You know, you know, ebbs and flows in the news that's not over in a major nuclear powers engaged in that with a leader that you questioning again their stability because it make a decision usually would've made as an China going over to Asia and South Korea and making statements about going toward China, which is another major nuclear power. These touches you can take out the grab or take out the land where I think we we beat them at all those fronts but would you have the kind nuclear arsenal.
They have doesn't matter if there really deems it a dynamic so drastically. Carla Smith is with us. Col. strategic ambiguity seems to be the policy. Whatever that means, you explain that Babel well I can explain it. However, you know the policy itself is not completely clear. The one China policy is what establish what's called strategic ambiguity is often misunderstood.
The one China policy simply recognizes one China that is communist China and while we acknowledge their claim on Taiwan under the one China policy, we do not endorse that claim.
On the other hand, just like Pruden sees Ukraine as a part of Russia President. She sees Taiwan as a part of China so the US policy is purposely unclear by law. The only thing were obligated to do is to give them the means to defend themselves. The Taiwan relations act of 1979 obligates us to arm them. That's all.
But here's the thing.
J there is nothing in law to forbid any President from sending troops into Taiwan delinquent one, but one person about doing that statement were said it was played again.
I want people to hear.
This is really troubling very quickly you didn't want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily, for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that.
Yes you are. This commitment we made to it's been interpreted that militarily meant troops, but he she used the example of Ukraine that what we did not do their and basically the import of the question is are you willing to do in Taiwan what we did not do in Ukraine and his answer is an unequivocal yes.
Here's the thing Jake this is the third time. Pres. Biden said this and also master the same question as reground because that's what's bugging me so. If the Chinese decide to invade Ukraine. You should meet invade Taiwan when we do was not sidestep. Hopefully, I mean no less alienate Dayton tomorrow morning we wake up and would put did Ukraine. She does Taiwan flies its groups amphibious landing military attacks start a war when we do we we invoke vigorously the Taiwan relations that we continue means what we can arm them. We give them everything they need to defend himself and may defend themselves from being hard on this because I'm not practical yet.
How do you defend yourself. Taiwan is not large country enough to defend themselves against Chinese military up. If the Chinese decided they were to take over right it is one of those unknowns, we thought Ukraine would fall in a matter of days. The will to fight figures and prominently but on the other hand, you're correct, they would be completely overpowered and outnumbered, Taiwan would bye-bye China and so you know the date they would defend themselves for a while that we have armed them to the teeth. They are, minus the nuclear power strike Taiwan. It is well armed astronomy. It is just that there are so many more Chinese and so many more Chinese weapons that the Chinese cook military can overrun the time when it will absolutely just raised George the problem of reckless statements coming out of Joe Biden yes is it just again. There is easy answer there to fight you were to follow US large existing US policy.
Next question he doesn't take the easy route he takes these he makes these tough statements and then put our entire military into a corner gives the Chinese the ability to come out and says say was what what they said that they were there very upset about this as you can imagine, it's not that I care about upsetting the Chinese, but let's all be honest right now in the United States of America. We have not done what we need to do here for our economy to just cut China off so what time it lets look we didn't we have the nuclear threat from China and they still invaded Harwich that we they do so it's it's hard to measure both take that up for the economic threat the post office and blue because we are so reliant on goods and met high tech to medicine to I'm so what happened is an China of the production of high-level goods, you know, AA and think the high-tech medical and of course all the just normal stuff that you need to you need so were not ready. In the United States. I would like to get to that point. Just like I would like to get that point energy where we don't. We aren't so reliant on China, but they could punish us economically in a way that very few countries actually punish Lotta countries economically, very few can punish us.
This is one the camp they could punish they could. We have so many fewer options with China than we did with Russia because we are dependent commercially and financially on China so that we could go in robustly with Russia and try to cut them off economically. If we did that to China we would wreck the US economy and hurt US citizens by that because were so dependent on them. That's geopolitically that's the one thing that we really, really, really need to change because we have little leverage over China because were so dependent on them.
Col. Michelin question, but Ukraine is not in the news as much these days, but Zelinski is saying they are running out of supplies to running out of munitions with the situation we are still giving them lots of supplies and I am not sure exactly what kind of munitions he's talking about other than they are expending a lot of rounds with rockets and artillery rounds. We are still shipping things to them.
Perhaps the fight is so intense and they are using so much ammunition they are indeed running short. Here's the other thing, and this is been in the news recently to Russia also is running short on ammunition and they've lost thousands of military vehicles is becoming more and more a true stalemate logistically and militarily in Ukraine. So how does that end, I think there needs to be a negotiated into this really do II can't see Vladimir Putin continuing this indefinitely. I know there's a lot of fear of him using a tactical nuclear weapon.
I personally don't think he will go there either a day they've had their head handed to them militarily, he will look for an exit ramp Zelinski needs to look for one for him to perhaps giving him Don Boston calling it a day but with more developments on the Durham trouble given to those in broadcast tomorrow.
The trial is going on against Sussman's interest in Goldman Sachs showed that much else was exactly that home from the outset. And as I said the Florida state Senate. They knew it the moment it happened.
