Keeping you informed and now this is expected lawmakers to press secretary blanket on how many American citizens and Afghan allies remain in Afghanistan want to hear from you, Sharon poster, call one 800 683110 lawmakers want answers on the decision to pull troops out by the August 31 deadline.

Despite Americans being left behind are also expected. Asked why the US failed to heed warnings from some of the intelligence community, predicting the Alamance wrap and take over now. Your secular secular figure phone calls they read about 100 3110 because the hearings is going to be two years one today at 2 PM Eastern time and then again tomorrow. The first hearing is more for the house for the affairs committee that's shared by Congressman Meeks and then tomorrow the Senate foreign affairs committee which is chaired by Sen. Menendez course you got Democrats cherry both the Republicans on the committee still have their opportunity to ask questions. What I post to you as we begin the discussion today I think it's a very important hearings to finally put the feet to the fire. Hopefully these administration officials and I specifically hear the State Department's role. Our or lack of role in being able to get Americans and the Afghan special immigrant visa holders are people like that out before, including the State Department staff before this complete withdrawal so you know those kind of questions should be asked should be explained. I X expect so good to be heated but we also always yield Washington, we put that you these were members of Congress that a couple weeks ago. I'm sorry about the Democrat side more couple weeks ago selling they be pretty tough at a hearing like this. It remains to be seen if their rhetoric and their tone has completely shifted over the last couple weeks as they don't really want the American people focused on this as a party so we will see how to do. They do the right thing as Americans ask the tough questions and this could be two opportunities at one of the house side. One of the Senate side that is going to be happening today, having there some questions.

I know that I would like asked will get into that, but also to hear from you if you want to give us a call 1-800-684-3110 a what would you want got your member of Congress or the house of the Senate over the next couple days to ask Secretary of State blanket about the Afghan withdraw. What would you want asked what questions may be her military family veteran family or veteran yourself of that the Afghanistan conflict give us a call 1-800-684-3110 or you put your questions and on social media, Facebook, YouTube, periscope rumble wherever you're watching you on Instagram your questions and that way but if you want to get on the show.

I'm tell you this time to call is now so we get you ready get those questions going and analyzed at 41 800 684 31 to the talk to us on air is 100 684311 jobs give you preview one of my that I want asked immediately is why Rick Rundell wrote about this in the piece last week@aclj.org. Answer why secretary blanket was silent when Pres. Biden pulled the 2500 troops. US troops 5000 NATO troops from war-torn Afghanistan that we knew was going to be taken awry. The Taliban even at the best estimates around now the tell they will be taking over. And why was that done before evacuating State Department employees. Just a basic question like that start off here. Why didn't you speak up. Did you speak up.

Did you express concern for those employees your questions. Your your thoughts. What would you secretary blanket, one 800 684 30 wanted to talk to us on air at 2000 684-3110 will go to the team as well get their thoughts on secretary blanket. There's also a move already will get into this by China.

Surprise, surprise, Pakistan, Russia, not far behind either already giving direct aid to the Taliban already working to utilize Afghanistan as a partner in the last 20 years there was no no role for them there already there already making an impact.

Those are things you'd asked secretary blanket about Welles's role as Secretary of State think hurt you to evolve the show date couple phone lines open. Still, 1-800-684-3110. What would you asked, secretary, blanket, or have your member of Congress as secretary blanket will be right back on secular picture of you watching online share with your friends and family challenges facing Americans are substantial time and or value freedom and sword constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now. ACLJ has been on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms and then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

Thank you Knott's well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life changing become a member today ACLJ only one.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice as tech. 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 created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally pro-life battle and the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the motion and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to question your free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/secular take your phone calls from you right now they are 100 684 31. I want to get to those I quickly but for sorting around to our team and will circuiting your thoughts as well for in Washington DC stand just right off the bat with secretary Lincoln's testimony and tutus kind of opportunities to question him. So even that the Senators will be able to see what he kind of answer today and what what what gaps there may be to answer tomorrow.

What you think the tone is good to be like in this hearing, if it was two weeks ago you think it's a feel for like arise get a be angry and had aggressive towards Blake and but I just wonder now if things have changed enough where the Democrats on the committee try to keep this column and even if they've got tough questions not be quite as aggressive as they all sounded with this set failed withdrawal began yeah I think that's what's gonna happen Jordan.

I mean, like I think to be sober. I think it will be a somber tone, but I don't think it will be overly aggressive when Democrats are questioning me. First of all, just a couple of atmospherics Amanda House foreign affairs committee, which is the one that is out today. During this is a huge committee, 51 members a Democrats hold a three seat majority tomorrow's hearing, which will happen in the morning, so maybe we'll have some of that sound. By the time we go to air at the smaller committee.

22 senators evenly divided between Republicans and senators, so you might be able to get a little bit deeper in the weeds on that one.

At today's round of questioning Jordan will probably move rather quickly. I hope they do get deep into some of the weeds.

I mean, I totally agree with the questions that you talked about about timeline. Why did America turn their back on leaving no person behind, but maybe a couple other questions I would post you Jordan questions that we asked in our freedom of information act request.

Why did you cancel the crisis response Bureau because remember it was the State Department that was responsible for making that cancellation and then second door and I really hope somebody pushes the secretary on how far up the ladder did that dissent cable go. You've talked about this a lot, but that the people inside the department who disagreed with the tactic we know it got to the secretary's desk. I want him to answer.

Did I read it. Did I understand it thoroughly.

Did I understand the gravity of it and Jordan who ultimately did I share it with. I think he should answer the question, did you make the President of the United States aware of this cable. These were hairy diplomats that were saying it out that this withdrawal is not right.

We gotta change the pace here were not ready. The Taliban is too strong. I sat there, there were over 23 at least 23 state of artificial who signed onto this in the confidential reporting channel when they disagree and and is then brought up that is secretary Lincoln it was asked at a press conference when we found out about. He said those are generally reviewed by him. What we don't know. He didn't answers. If he shared it with the administration officials what what else would you want ass right off the bat here this year will I think your list and fans lengths are a great start. But in addition I would like the Secretary of State to explain whether he believes there was indeed an intelligence failure or on the other hand, was there a failure of will by the Biden administration to leave no American behind. He also needs to explain his rationale for not opposing the Bagram Air Force decision basically to close that Air Force Base border with drawing or better said, surrendering to the Taliban. In addition to all of that.

Of course we need to know how many Afghan A's were admitted to the United States without vetting for security purposes and without vetting for purposes of coded infections. So there'll there are a raft of questions that need to be answered and my big fear is that Secretary of State Bullington will engage in his usual duplicity and trying not to answer questions directly. So I hope the members of Congress will press him vigorously and demand real answers and also demand access to cables and other information which will either confirm Lincoln's claims, or perhaps basically suggests that he is fibbing once again I will go this by this is from Representative Carson waltz on Fox News can give you an idea of what maybe Natalie really here, but sort of that rhetoric that may come up. I spent about an hour 45 minutes or so with a positive waltz for new project working on a lot of great insights. He was there on the ground led the campaign to to try to find and locate a bluebird.

Dr. Nettle situation when he liked it or not, you find that in the documentary working on right now.

The new series I was here from Representative. What's Biden and blank, and keep single working to judge by their actions. The Taliban are literally pulling out young boys and killing them so that no future generation can ever resist their rule and partnered with Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda is going to come roaring back the intelligences that on that is very clear. Representative Walt if you certainly believe your popular blog is one that not only Islamic heritage and going to the huge rise also that were going to have to go back and this is just delaying the inevitable. And he gently was with the people who did not suggest the full pull out of Afghanistan so you a lot of very different people with different points of views.

But if you can't help but sympathize a little bit with how his opinion is right now. Let's go phone calls out of let's go to Marissa is calling Washington on line 3 Marissa that you're there all expressive role. So we are already seeing Harry check the Chinese as well as the Pakistanis moving quickly to what their calling relief. But there directly funding the Taliban and it with age so that they are they have taken a role that we haven't seen China take in to your two decades. While we been in Afghanistan is also open the door for the Russians as well, but they are there saying kind of regardless of everything else going on working to work directly with the Taliban. We got no problem working with directly with the Taliban. I think what they see this as an opportunity to take a lot of US assets that were left behind their they're not just the equipment but also the the infrastructure that was built and utilize it to their advantage of it. That's what they're all about is utilizing to their economic advantage. Ultimately, I think that's correct. And Derek, they are already planning a road into Afghanistan, which will be useful for purposes of trade, but it's very very important to keep in mind that the Afghan geese have been working with Pakistan and Pakistan is a strong friend of China. So essentially China after they finish their celebration over the American defeat in Afghanistan will have a willing partner, both with respect to the Taliban but also with respect to Pakistan which can now extend its influence deeper into Afghanistan, and I think at the end of the day. This may ultimately improve relationships between China and Iran, which is close by. So I think at the end of the day.

This is a huge loss for the American people strategically and tactically. I think this is a huge win for China and they may indeed have greater access down the road to minerals and other resources which will strengthen their control of the world economy and increase American dependence on China.

So I think at the end of the day of the State Department and the Biden administration.

They blew it they don't seem to understand geopolitics political events very very well Marissa, I would point you to this. This is the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson that you're getting the translation here, take a listen Tana about his importance to the Taliban's announcement of the establishment of an interim government on some important POSTNET arrangements just put an end to a three-week and not distinct enough. Gotta stun and is an essential step foot of Dagestan's restoration of domestic auto and postwar reconstruction they go they want to get in there to be part of the restoration of domestic order postwar reconstruction fan. That's money. That's my answer this. Another question for that would line up as I think what support for members of Congress today and tomorrow is not to not to let him not to ask questions that he's not the best person to respond to soffits of militant very military focused.

He's going to keep pushing that to the Pentagon, but this question on diplomacy entered the of countries coming in like China, like Russia, like Pakistan, that's right in line with with with what he should build respond to it. It's a great point, Jordan, and the funding question two. A lot of that flows to the State Department as well. He would have control over that lookout, I would say to Marissa, there's no doubt that China is trying to fill the void any weight. We said that they would of course they would, of course, they would seek, leverage, and this goes back to something that we heard from Jen sake Jordan where she was asking a high beginning keep leveraging there. She said she said will we have four and eight. What will Jordan I mean the status quo is, we were the protectors of back Afghanistan. We were not giving foreign aid that is actually a proactive grant that was one of the three main requests that the Taliban had to drink.

I go back to harassment. This is the opposite of understanding how this works that's giving the Taliban what they want and secretary. Lincoln is absolutely the correct person to answer that question right folks, we come back to Courier phone calls at 1-800-684-3110 just a couple lines open for all the on the line with those calls to a lot of great questions. The question is suppose. What would you want ass of our Secretary of State today and tomorrow these hearings on Afghanistan be right back on secular 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 a 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 and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists. The ramifications of Roe V Wade, 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to the pro-life discover the many ways your membership is powering the right to life question for copy mission life today online ACLJ/challenges facing Americans are substantial time and are now free to sort constitutional rights are under attack is more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now ACLJ on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights" in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.

But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. You are already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ so this is breaking now a reporter. This is just to make these very interesting tomorrow, so Republican staff pursue that staff on on the committees have an audio recording of Tony Blake and the Secretary of State at a Hamptons gathering the weekend that Kabul fell to the Taliban and the recording blinking is heard making several disparaging comments about the most senior members of the Biden administration now they are the right year that they got it back this up. You put the this kind of news out where she got a backup that this is real and that's that the audio is clear enough and that what he saying about the people. But if this is true that the Secretary of State was basically putting the blame elsewhere while allowing his staff and team to be put in harm's way.

This would be this would be game changing. This is this is we wait for these cleansing a movie.

This may be like what the situation is just now breaking well. He's also gushy to Congress St., Jordan, I mean if he did sell in your any group of supporters.

One thing and goes in front of Congress tomorrow and says something different that would be a major problem for him and look it's not about embarrassing certain members of the administration's about doing the duty of the sacred duty about the commander-in-chief in the Secretary of State look very blinking can't override Pres. Obama.

As far as far as withdrawing troops from Afghanistan, but Jordan absolutely has an obligation to make sure that those decisions don't negatively impact his embassy staff are threatened their lives.

He absolutely has an obligation to go into the West Wing and tell the President of the United States with the decision that you are making very well could cost me the lives of the people who are under my my control so I don't know what was said at this at this East Hampton gathering of a Jordan.

He sure better be consistent in his testimony, both today and tomorrow with whatever he told a gathering to be interesting to see look at that shocked.

I think before Afghanistan secretary blinking was largely kind of moderately's accepted wasn't necessarily unnoticeable, who was universally failing at his job. You can look them to Ocala. Maybe there's some rational people here opposite.

A lot of that changed with the response Afghanistan by would be shocked if he starts a hey this wasn't me. Now, what can that be for his job that's another story. Let's take some phone calls speak of something like this with good luck in Oregon online one.

I think she's a comment that a lot of people probably early about my health will believe anything all and just what you do now we can stand me lying what will be the consequences to him AS is alive but they're pretty careful about and understand your your whole tone wastes by trust any of this because it often times we'll see if he does this kind of performance where he really never says anything. Hear me this is easy.

He's got kind of two options here laid out. Maybe. Maybe talk about some of the discussions that he may have disagreed with protect himself some or he's going to just play the line of the administration just not answer things that they don't want to. I think you're out urinalysis is absolutely correct, and I also would throw a further option which is perhaps the Democrats will seek to postpone the hearing and so then they can throw a little blogger shade on the American people. With respect to Lincoln's comments, if indeed they are validly being reported, but I also think he is sufficiently skillful enough to basically engage in duplicity without directly lying and I think at the end of the day of. That's what the Biden administration is coming. Logan II think that this is one of those opportunities where people again. If this is information kinda changes what he is talking. That's one thing but if if that doesn't exist. If that's not play the light heard a lot of this it and wash it before where things get built up and that it's a whole lot of right so I'm I will look a bit too much stock in it that will be interesting to see her getting this testimony is hearing centrally this soon after a crisis executed impressive you. We actually get together maybe have some answers use, it will can you dodge questions of courses Washington Dodge. Whatever they don't want to reveal there plenty of things he doesn't have to say. Let's see how it plays out. I find it interesting that were even able to have this to be a flip onto the watch this know what's happening. It's kind of an interesting time to be and should be in Washington and to see what's happening I I'm doing an ongoing series on the situation Afghanistan venting some great people, good people are staff including people like Rick would now like a pale and Col. Smith but also people like opposite of Walter doing another one this afternoon with with Langford. We you have people's genuine passion thoughts right now where people are still emotional, still hot from the moment I think it's important to capture that hopefully something like this today with Sec. Blake and we can know it it's it's very fresh in our minds where if you got two years down the road. Her year down the road for six months. No doubt you kinda start you start the healing process if you will.

I think support to capture this kind of emotion hopefully coming from a representative artful. She still get your questions into our 164 3110 what you would like Sec. Blake a national take or more those for this break without one.

I want to know specifically is why he did not make sure that all of the specific State Department staff were evacuated before we shut down Bogner before certain other avenues to why did we just get them all evacuated. What it can't be because while they didn't think the Taliban was coming. They knew the Taliban was coming. The best estimate was 90 days. That was the best estimate, and they saw before you. There was time to make corrections to the plan well before the Taliban had taken Kabul but you had to be flexible yet be willing to be flexible didn't seem like there was a lot of flexibility when it came to the by the ministration of this they were stuck to their what they were going to do this how the plate to the media is how plates the American people and will just let the cards fall, hoping that you just had a move on from this this as well as opportunities we say hold on I can let you just move on I were to pay attention to what the Secretary of State says in his testimony think that's important yeah Bob from getting shut down place.

That's what a few hundred miles from China and I get for the borders. I believe it's it's crazy to see that kind of the Gavin. Let's go ahead lock you up to bit to take a quick golf let's go to Aaron in Ohio online to Aaron. You're on the hair and think they'll appreciate your time. My question would be, and finding a common area may gravitate toward military intelligence by the bank but with the suicide bomber that got the 13 service members and injured know a lot more. How can they then turn around and explained that they had the info cannot only know who plan that bombing that suicide bombing impact know where they were after the back and then be able to confirm that they got a guy right now there's only were swarming around in bed and know that it would handle the children not really sure what they concentrate actually got but how can you explain that you have that spell that level of insight and then turn around and say we didn't know the quality that overtake, that I interviewed Sec. Pompeo last week about this specifically which was typically in this situation the terrorist threat is is uncovered is then publicized ended that what I that needs board because a lot of times they will even attempted because you have publicized me know this is happening be worn. Probably you had the Taliban and Al Qaeda, and now in Isis have these big terror threats there.

You did of the people more to stop it you had some of the intelligence that you have the ability to go in and take care of it and you had a country and people that are no longer scared of yet that's right because your troops and are not there, then the word again on Facebook. The second part that I would say is that they didn't have to answer questions that particular family on accident and was asked to move to look like they had Intel they didn't have 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. If you're already a member. Thank you.

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, member today ACLJ keeping you informed and now, this is Jordan secular secular just to reset a little bit for a second half-hour take your phone calls, 1-800-684-3110 so far. Great great commissary questions coming in from our audience in a quick question for everybody there responding to is what would they like to be answered by Sec. blinking today or tomorrow. The first time he's under oath before these hearings that's doing a press conference such as making a statement and it looks like fan and and people want to call in a nutritional life people call in the back questions that they would want answered. Give us a call. We broadcast a 1-800-684-3110 that's 1-800-684-3110 thing we can confirm. So this reporting about audio that may exist.

If that's the kind of that the tone positioning. It would appear that the Republicans are going into this with a more aggressive aggressive attitude which I think is a good thing. I think they need to go in with aggressive attitude because again I have to ask the same question, two, three or four times to try and get the actual answer, yet both parties really should your name. Look it almost doesn't matter if this audio exist, or can be confirmed or not, because we know the facts on the ground are really horrific. We know we left Americans behind. We know we worked on a timeline that really deferred more to the Taliban's interest in whether or not we had accomplished the task that we had a we know that we close Bogner Mayor forced out airbase down before we really were done using it. We know a lot of these things Jordan and the secretary is directly responsible for a number of them. So yes, if the audio is real.

If the audio can be used. I think will be a more aggressive tone. We talked about this a couple weeks ago. I hope that time. Passing doesn't diminish the intensity of both parties question on this. You get people like Sen. Blumenthal who said that they were incredibly dismayed by some of the decisions made by the administration will his party push on that tomorrow Jordan, I think it remains to be seen. I think there will be a temptation to get into some of the distraction of the date of drafting that three-point trail at $5 trillion bill right will they be more focused on that or will they be aggressive with with the secretary of state budget phones. Good attrition Florida online. Six.

Trish welcome welcome and I appreciate report equipment in working condition at arts away from it. So this is again part of the disaster, and I think Trish the question that I think would be asked is, we all want to know that answer here everybody wants to know why was it left behind. The way it does seems like some of it was not disassemble sufficient small arms. I would not, but he probably won't answer that because it's a military question that is not a diplomatic question. I think your answer is absolutely correct, Jordan, but I think it is clear from the evidence at least that I've read that we did leave, fully functioning military equipment including in some cases helicopters behind. That's number one number two. We talked about China earlier the Chinese government has probably already sent in its military experts to disassemble and to engage in reverse engineering on much of this equipment and so they will probably be able to profit from the fact that we left tens of billions of dollars worth of equipment behind more likely than not what we should have done is we should have blown up the equipment. If we could not get it out in time, but the Biden administration did engaged in a craven decision to essentially exit Afghanistan is a form of surrender to the Taliban with a out getting all of our people out being without getting there military equipment out and see without getting Danny's who were very helpful to us in the past so they're just tons and tons of problems with the way the Biden administration has acted in this entire disaster as a states that this is when is this a question for the secretary of defense, there can have to testify to and and those kind of questions. Department fence is going to have to answer it was so obvious to reporters on the ground.

It was obvious to people watching the Taliban with equipment that all that was not disabled Humvees, accident, small arms, don't know about some of the aircraft, yet out how what kind of condition that's it would seem trying to utilize some of it though some of it right up into the air, we come back to Cory calls comments 164 3110 point blinking that day.

The challenges facing Americans are substantial time and are now free to insert constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stand with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades ACLJ has been on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress to get in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

Thank you. Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing become a member today ACLJ 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 a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications of weighing 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is powering the right to question your free copy of mission life today online ACLJ/secular. We are close to 164, 31 to the courts regressive great question, what they would want secretary blinking to answer to. Today he is testifying at 2 PM Eastern time house for the first committed and to bar the Senate foreign affairs committee. The military leadership of the unit six will also be testifying. Ultimately self your questions in one 864, 31, two, that's 100-684-3110 your BBC reporting 20 civilians killed Afghanistan because of fighting between the Taliban and some opposition forces communications been cut. I mean so while the BBC has evidence of these kind of attacks occurring with the Taliban. They're not. They're not acting the way that maybe it's perceived they can get the info out week we target the slogan with one of the issue. Afghanistan was people are used to seeing everything you and that horrible bombing occurred. We got it we had always reporters at the airport they been cut down significantly me there still some reporters there, their ability to get information out specially if the Taliban is displaying decent. I would say nice decent in Kabul at but then this acute country and were not realizing what's going on right not seeing right it's moving off of the news are seeing less and less nothings are today will will hopefully bring more of a light to it, but also the people are feeling this pressure to move on.

The media is to other topics.

Look, we can say with our own coverage we all be people watch and listen. Sometimes if something's breaking with Afghanistan.

Lotta people watch. We also save it. Get a little less and less as time goes on, just purely as news media does move pretty rapidly as we had until last quarter of the year jobs. They have different news stories different wants and needs. People have still have a covert you still so many things that are breaking you so yeah sure we do keep our eye on the ball though and talk about what's happening in Afghanistan and what ends up happening for that entire region of the world, not just of Afghanistan. What that relates to China what that relates to Iran. What how that your text was Russia it all and Odyssey Israel, the Middle East and Alicante could tie together very quickly. If were not careful will not keep your eye on the ball if it we saw that and we saw the disaster that came upon the last few months of the binder ministration you have seen major things we talked for unification. I we had record ally last Friday but if you want to really get upset of the show it to go watch that's a good one to keep yourself educated part of it was talking about whether there to be unification of this country you is this is hard to see that there was only some unification of people sign overseeing Afghanistan is disturbing and disgusting were not just get a take it people did respond, they respond aggressively as we do in America respond aggressively as unit and then you break apart slowly move across like you said today will be sure that telltale sign to the Democrats just protect their own or do they actually have the hard-hitting questions. It is because partisan battle right because if it's just like a impeachment trial if it's just like a lot of these things that happened recently.

Haven't split doesn't get set.

Nothings going to happen or to move on or do actually have representation of the American people, which is what we ask for the fact you can see the poll numbers you can see the numbers way people responded to this you can see the chance going on around the world of relation to the administration.

People want answers. American people are compassionate people. They are you the conservative compassionate conservative, so that it was unsurpassed around a lot the original Bush years, people are as much is you want to see them as angry L people on twitter screaming and yelling that's not the mass majority of people. We then remember that that is the vocal minority that most people are compassionately seek with happening around the world and they want answers they don't want to be ability is the American people are quickly pelletized when you do something like this, a 20 year war with said slot. The documentary series working on right now is it's very hard to look back on a movie you watched member that you like 95% of it but they did the ending was terrible and that's it be the problem with this war. The war on terror is be very hard to remember there was 20 years of really good at least 10 of really good work By our soldiers.

We need to always remember that, because all that could be stuck in our mind is the very beginning of the war died 11 in the variant which was this botched disaster and we need not forget 20 years of good work that was done 20 years of relative freedom that was given to the people of Afghanistan is really a shame to see it in this way and that it was their people to be searching for answers for a long time present.

Biden was in Pennsylvania that one of the 9/11 morals and shakes over that flight went down and he talked about the 20 year we talked about but you put it a different way.

Lily take a list totaling 320 years training after you after kind went down there because of his first about I live in a concert about money will last for $3.5 trillion. This really knows the day is very little for the federal government. If 2000 US troops who are not in horrific cards way which they were not last 10 years to work with NATO troops and we don't have to worry about terrorism and are in our own soil.

He also took a decade to get to bin Laden to figure out the Intel that took half the time was just figuring out their networks to get to him but yet here you have this idea that it's about money.

That's how he's pitching it is try to pick sensitive services narrative that's also a pitch to independent voters that a lot of people's is broadcast right now to try to put you off on the idea about this cost $300 million a day as if he cares yes your your analysis is spot on and so basically it's a bait and switch approach by a President.

Biden he is pushing an initiative which would restructure so many areas of the country under this $3.5 trillion green new deal approach and then he wants to restructure of voting in the United States. He is now slamming the state of Texas with respect to abortion, and so it goes on and on.

He is a person with out principal, at least in my limited experience with him and I think the American people should expect more unprincipled remarks by Joe Biden because at his core, I think you will find a very, very empty suit. So at the end of the day. I think the American people should make their own decisions, but they should not rely on Pres. Biden's analysis poetry part of the broadcast 100-684-3110 SME call you so that I would do a ghetto segment coming up.

If you've got questions you want answered by Sec. Boykin in these hearings about the Afghanistan withdrawal gives a call 1-800-684-3110.

Another question I have if then this would this would go again right the heart of something that Sec. blinking would be responsible for is what's going on with the vetting. Is it true that people are being pushed through and then we'll figure it out on the quote back in got quotes like that. We were referred statements like that from the administration from Lincoln and I think they got to be pushed on that because we want to first of all, I think there's a question about how many people are really behind it were supposed to take out from there were Afghan but to everybody is concerned about the fact that we were just putting people on planes at that airport and not checking who they were distant so they could I looks like they were doing that to inflate their numbers and then didn't really know these people were. Yet your naming and look at you and I think there's probably to be a temptation for him to blame it on fog of war, blame it on chaos and there would be some justification for that may be. If all of the flights went to interim locations. I mean I was the whole point of those interim locations like RAM Stein basin in Germany adorned but look you have to follow the rules for refugee vetting for for a number of reasons. Number one, and it most paramount is the security of the United States you can't fly them into Dulles in then check and see.

Oh by the way does this person have a terrace connection, for example Jordan you have to do that before they come to the United States for national security reasons, but the second reason and and you're probably the best position to talk about this Jordan.

It's for the people who actually are refugees and need safe harbor into the United States because if you don't follow the vetting process and the process is abused by people who do pose a national security threat to the United States who does that cast suspicion on it. Cast suspicion on the people who really are fleeing for their lives. We really do have an obligation to seek resettlement for them in the United States or elsewhere. Jordan those are the people it hurts the most because it casts suspicion on the whole wide range of the group that is been evacuated and yet again this is a question that that this week's hearing should absolutely focus on is not probably something that sec. Austin could speak to us directly, but sec. blinking Jordan absolutely responsible for this area so we come back and take more of your phone calls that we get to Bob and Mary Alice right off the bat if you got again it question you want asked if you if there's that issue. Maybe so. We haven't discussed yet you want Lincoln to discuss today or tomorrow. These hearings on Capitol Hill. Let us know gives a call one 800 684 31 to be a part of the broadcast also get back out. We have got a case out of our office in Pakistan is a good reminder as we type Afghanistan and also Pakistan's role. I do think we have an affiliate in Pakistan that works up primarily of course you those issues. Christian persecution got another case your Christian Smith or years in prison for nothing really. I mean this even the prosecutor Pakistan said it wasn't really blasphemy. So what are we doing about it at the ACLJR European surf on just so we fight. The church in Pakistan will get to that to we come back and we are focusing on your thoughts, your cause where you want the discussion to go in the questions to go today and tomorrow. Sec. Boykin is peers under oath on Capitol Hill will be right back on secular only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice as 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 a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission life will show you how you are personally and publication includes a look at all major ACLJ pro-life cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. You are already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life changing become a member today ACLJ to secular casino about where the extent to with the betting it's one of his yard like focused on because what we don't want to be doing is importing tears into our own country. We had a chance to stop it is that according to Washington Post and and vetting reports to US 30 flight 44 evacuees as national security risk so that that's people they arty have caught the national security risk. The question is how many more of you. How many people on this is just a question needs to be asked what was in the plan put in place or did everything just fall apart.

Just answer questions because why why we told you that these Afghans need the special immigrant visas, special paperwork, but it would appears as it if you got through that airport, as these were crumpling it. It may have had that paperwork cannot donate some of those people.

Yes, they went to third party third third countries, but others I would write United States some 4044 flagged as national security risk.

You got to wonder how we were people just part of the questioning needs to happen. I would go back to Fonzo Logan will start for Bob Bob Wisconsin line 1 Bobbio there is a spot and really applied or military leadership by I want to know who's going to be held for all of the equipment Black Hawk and no fingers all over and the person are they going to take you to upper level military leadership or drop a bomb on the head of the brigade, battalion company level what sites is to close my where they put the where they put the blame where is the military trained labor rates that would come in from all I wanted one mistake you for your service to our country. I thought you brought the instant aspect listed. It's not just reengineering. Maybe helicopters existed for decades in the US gets upgraded but it's what it was upgraded with Harry that he had not specifically it's not the fact that they can fly. It's that they have potentially classified technology on them and we don't know that were saved in Aerotech and we know the Chinese if it's there can do that their experts and ceilings stealing your proprietary information.

Bob raises a great point because it's very very possible that a Black Hawk helicopter would have sufficient classified information so that it could communicate directly in real time with. For instance, a groan or a drone commander for purposes of perhaps going after the terror threat or someone who processes security threat to the United States, and apparently China now has access to all of that information and to answer Bob's question directly, and this reflects my skepticism.

My own view is virtually no one in the Biden administration will take real responsibility, so no one will get fired, but at the end of the day. Both Bullington of the defense secretary, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff's belly. All of those individuals they need to resign because they have basically failed the American people.

They have failed their commander-in-chief, and they should've pushed back more vigorously.

When Biden decided to go down this disastrous road is correct for continuing on Mary Alice in California, unlike two if you have LSI can call 1-800-684-3110 to try to get in Mary Alice are there my call.

My people that are going in there trying to get any allies that help them out. But the state department is not allowing them to either take or even land at any country around or even in the United States stand is I think also one there's all this in answer to be given here because it's been update some of the flights have been able to take off some of those efforts have been successful and we might be down to a much lower number of Americans at answer that something bleak and can answer to Marfan is that wine art are we still seeing that the ability to get the Americas at what number we at yeah think he should answer the number.

What number he things his left. How many of them want to get out M&A volley sort of conveniently fall back on this idea that if you are going to choose to stay. I'm sure that's true Jordan, but that doesn't answer the question, how many are wanting to get out that you have not yet been able to extract and look to the point about private groups trying to get Americans or SIV's out. We know that is ongoing.

Jordan now we have close proximity to some of those efforts and II think he should be asked this question, is there a different standard being applied to those charter flights.

Then there was to the ones that the military was evacuated because Jordan again this goes back to the security conversation, it is reasonable. It is rational and it is actually appropriate for the State Department to make sure that there are national security threats on those flights of the Jordan, if you're holding planes in country.

Now when you were not doing it, then that doesn't seem appropriate to me would seem to me that if there were some validation of who's on board they should go to an interim location. The vetting should finish and then they should proceed from there. It looks to me Jordan like there's a different standard being applied now and I think the secretary to be asked directly about it when he gets a little bit about Pakistan but Harwich's first at and fan as well. Logan with anything else you source yesterday and I really just like to see some true answers. Real responses from people to think that other people are frustrated and liberal about an hour out from with this is going to happen. I hope this gets my balls and people can see whether the truth is coming out whether you have someone dodging which sometimes even more truthful to know whether or not the Biden administration is prepared to give the Taliban terrorists.

American money and and if so how much so is the Biden administration prepared to play ball with China with Pakistan and basically fund a terrorist organization. So to me that is one of the more important question fan. I would like him to be asked with the Biden administration is prepared to do now and in the days ahead for the religious minority, including the Christian community still on the ground and for women and girls still in country Jordan we have got to look at history, we know exactly what the tallow band, and frankly, Al Qaeda and other offshoots due to these groups of people they might be behaving slightly better for now. The Jordan we know we don't have to guess how those groups will be treated. I want him to be asked directly what the Biden administration is prepared to do to protect those groups just so I you know folks again this year is about to begin, we will cover tomatoes another hearing tomorrow but I just want to spend this last bit of the broadcast. This is further by watching this submission to the United Nations on the situation at Pakistan that our office there is working on. Just as a reminder to our supporters are often Pakistan is still a very much functioning and working mostly the criminal law around because of the cases involve a criminal charges brought against Christians in this case we brought in to assist a Christian Pakistani who is been imprisoned for four years off of a blasphemy charge the prosecutor in the case that it wasn't blasphemy was tight, but a friend of a friend statement about someone's name that nothing to do with religion but is been imprisoned for four years in Pakistan and why will bring it to the attention of the UN is that when the judiciary there's about to make a decision what we see in the past is that they don't even when the prosecutor says drop the case. Is that a prison still there in prison and that the public pressure is so high to condemn people for blasphemy to hold them even if the evidence is that there even if we believe these laws are wrong and not just it's a fight within the system so there's this concern the judicial branches and in Pakistan will buckle that pressure for bringing this, the international community's attention is information about it will be up@aclj.org. We will talk to you tomorrow for decades. ACLJ is been on the frontline 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. If you're already a member thinking. 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, member today ACLJ
