It takes a spine to say, “Being white doesn't make you a white supremacist.” But that's Ayaan Hirsi Ali for you. She has experienced Islamist supremacy and lived to tell others the truth. Her life story is remarkable. Born in Somalia, she lived through indescribable hell, including forced genital mutilation when she was five years old. She later fled to Holland, eventually becoming a member of the Dutch parliament. Now, she serves as the exact cultural commentator we need. Her latest book, Prey: Immigration, Islam, and the Erosion of Women's Rights, reveals the threat that Islam poses to women's rights and Western liberal democracy. The Left has led a concerted campaign against Ms. Hirsi Ali. But these days, that's a badge of honor. On this episode, Glenn and Ms. Hirsi Ali talk about Afghanistan, genital mutilation, and the transgender craze overtaking America's youth. Critical race theory. Woke ideology. And politics. Identity politics has completely destroyed the Left's high moral standing with themselves. Where is their outrage about homophobia and misogyny in Afghanistan? GLAAD is all too happy to focus its activism on bakeries and bathrooms. Meanwhile, LGBTQ people are dying in Afghanistan and it's crickets. As Ms. Hirsi Ali sums it up: “I don't think of politics as a pleasurable activity.”   This Week's Sponsors: AR500 Armor - Plan now for how to protect yourself and your family.

In the chaos of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the mass evacuation, a number of unaccompanied minors ended up on flights out of the country. Now comes the difficult task of reuniting them with families or helping them find new homes. Also, if you're in the market for a puffy vest this winter, you may need to be patient. The shipping bottlenecks occurring at California ports continue to have an outsized impact on US retailers like Eddie Bauer.

President Biden has only been in office for eight months, but he has already managed to make some huge blunders. The border crisis, the debacle in Afghanistan, picking Kamala Harris as his invisible vice president — Biden's record so far has been disastrous and destructive. For this podcast, Rob takes you on a painful stroll down memory lane to examine it all. As Rob explains, the situation at the southern border has the potential to transform this country negatively and insidiously over the next couple decades. But even worse, Harris is the one charged with handling the border! An unpopular lightweight, Harris is an empty politician more concerned with her own ambitions than the wellbeing of the American people. And Biden is ultimately to blame for all of this.

Photo:  Liberal internationalism emerged during the nineteenth century, notably under the auspices of British Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister Lord Palmerston Liberal internationalism, also known as International Liberalism and Pan-Liberalism, is a foreign policy doctrine that argues two main points: first, that international organization should achieve multilateral agreements between states that promote liberal democracy and, second, that liberal states should intervene in other states in order to pursue liberal objectives. Such intervention can include both military invasion and humanitarian aid. This view is contrasted to isolationist, realist, or non-interventionist foreign policy doctrines; these critics characterize it as liberal interventionism.

It was a diatribe on Climate Change and COVID. This is what our President wants to focus on, instead of looking at losing allies because of Afghanistan. France is mad at the U.S. because we made a deal with Australia to supply them submarines, even though they had a deal with France first. We made this deal without telling France is the problem. Biden says people re struggling to find jobs, but how can that be. Every employer out there is screaming that there are plenty of good-paying jobs that they can NOT fill. It is just another example of human inclination - people got used to being paid by the government, they do not WANT to go back to work. Our current administration is destroying our country, while saying they are going to "build back better". Nick says we have various factions that are pushing the same agendas. Optimists, who don't know all the logistics, the idealists, the generally have good intent, but they do not understand the consequences. It's the census where this really matters.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Donnerstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Macron und Biden vereinbaren "vertiefte Konsultationen" US-Präsident Joe Biden und Frankreichs Staatschef Emmanuel Macron haben sich im U-Boot-Streit um eine Wiederannäherung bemüht. Die beiden Präsidenten vereinbarten in einem Telefonat "vertiefte Konsultationen" zwischen ihren Regierungen, wie es in einer gemeinsamen Erklärung heißt. Dadurch sollten "die Bedingungen geschaffen werden, um Vertrauen sicherzustellen", außerdem sollten gemeinsame Ziele entwickelt werden. Der französische Botschafter in den USA soll kommende Woche nach Washington zurückkehren. Biden und Macron wollen sich dann Ende Oktober in Europa persönlich treffen. Maas nennt Afghanistan "gewaltigste" internationale Herausforderung Bundesaußenminister Heiko Maas hat bei einer G20-Videokonferenz vier Forderungen an die neue Taliban-Regierung in Afghanistan gerichtet. Humanitäre Hilfsorganisationen müssten ungehinderten Zugang zum Land erhalten und ausreisewillige Afghanen müssten das Land sicher verlassen können. Afghanistan dürfe nicht wieder zu einem Hort des internationalen Terrorismus werden. Außerdem müssten die Taliban die Menschenrechte schützen und auch andere Bevölkerungsgruppen respektieren. Maas bezeichnete Afghanistan als "gewaltigste Herausforderung" der internationalen Gemeinschaft. Helfer: EU-Staaten müssen Kinder aus Lagern in Syrien aufnehmen Die Hilfsorganisation "Save the Children" hat die Zustände in den syrischen Flüchtlingslagern Al Hol und Roj angeprangert. Gewalt und Epidemien seien in den Camps ein tägliches Risiko und viele Kinder fürchteten um ihr Leben. Westlichen Staaten warf die Organisation vor, zu wenige minderjährige Staatsangehörige aus den Lagern zurückzuholen. Unschuldige Kinder würden von ihren Regierungen einfach im Stich gelassen, sagte die Syrien-Direktorin von "Save the Children", Sonia Kush. In den beiden Flüchtlingslagern im Nordosten Syriens leben nach UN-Angaben mehr als 60.000 Menschen. Biden ruft zu großzügigen Corona-Impfspenden auf Im Kampf gegen Corona hat US-Präsident Joe Biden andere Industrienationen zu großzügigen Impfspenden an ärmere Länder aufgerufen. Es sei eine internationale Kraftanstrengung nötig, um das Virus zurückzudrängen, sagte Biden in Washington bei einem Online-Gipfel zur Corona-Pandemie. Das Weiße Haus hatte bereits zuvor angekündigt, dass die USA weitere 500 Millionen Impfdosen an ärmere Staaten spenden wollten. Insgesamt belaufen sich die US-Zusagen damit auf 1,1 Milliarden Impfdosen. Die Herstellerfirmen Biontech und Pfizer wollen die Vakzine zu Vorzugspreisen liefern. Vorerst keine Polizeireform in den USA Im US-Kongress sind Verhandlungen über eine umfassende Polizeireform vorerst gescheitert. Es ist ein schwerer innenpolitischer Rückschlag für US-Präsident Joe Biden. Die Reform sollte Polizisten Würgegriffe verbieten und die weitgehende zivilrechtliche Immunität von Beamten bei Fehlverhalten einschränken. Der Gesetzesentwurf "George Floyd Justice in Policing Act" wurde nach dem Afroamerikaner benannt, der im Mai 2020 von einem Polizisten in Minneapolis getötet worden war. Sein auf einem Handyvideo festgehaltener Tod hatte in den USA landesweite Proteste gegen Rassismus und Polizeigewalt ausgelöst. Region in Polen ist nicht länger "LGBT-frei" Nach finanziellem Druck der EU hat eine Region in Südpolen ihren Status als sogenannte "LGBT-Ideologie-freie Zone" wieder aufgehoben. Das Regionalparlament in Swietokrzyskie stimmte in einer Sondersitzung dafür, die umstrittene Bezeichnung zu streichen. LGBT steht im Englischen für Lesbisch, Schwul, Bisexuell und Transgender. In Polen haben sich rund hundert Städte und Dörfer zu "LGBT-freien Zonen" erklärt - vor allem im traditionell streng katholischen Süden und Südosten des Landes. Im Juli hatte die EU deswegen ein Vertragsverletzungsverfahren gegen Warschau eingeleitet. Mehrheit der Deutschen hält Religion für unwichtig Nur 33 Prozent der Deutschen sagen laut einer repräsentativen Umfrage, dass ihnen Religion "wichtig" oder "sehr wichtig" ist. Demgegenüber stehen 61 Prozent, denen Religion nicht oder überhaupt nicht wichtig ist, teilte die Bewegung "Religions for Peace" anlässlich ihrer Jahrestagung in Lindau mit. Dazu wurden 2000 Menschen in Deutschland auch zum Thema Gerechtigkeit befragt. Zwölf Prozent der Befragten finden, dass Religionen zu einer gerechteren Welt beitragen. Dies leisteten der Umfrage zufolge eher Nichtregierungsorganisationen, die Vereinten Nationen und die Europäische Union.

The 76th United Nations General Assembly began on Tuesday, September 21 and controversy has already begun as world leaders addressed the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the strain placed upon the global economy, Afghanistan falling to the Taliban, and tensions between the U.S. and China. President Biden spoke at the UNGA and did not call out China, instead calling for international unity and cooperation to overcome the pandemic and climate crisis. Fox News Senior Correspondent Eric Shawn joins us from the U.N. to discuss the criticism of President Biden's speech, the Taliban's push for UN recognition of their Afghanistan leadership amid human rights abuses and how the U.S. is mending a rift with France after a controversial sale of submarines to Australia. Eric Shawn also details how Iran pushed to restart nuclear talks, the UNGA's central theme of climate change, and the COVID-19 issues that arose from a lack of vaccination requirements.   Facebook is under fire after a recent Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that the company has been shielding high-profile users from content moderation guidelines most users must abide by. Reportedly, regulations that would ban content for the average user have been essentially ignored for celebrities, politicians, and other elites on the platform due to Facebook's “cross check” system. On top of the revelations from the recent Facebook Files, shareholders have now filed lawsuits alleging Facebook and the government engaged in a “quid pro quo”  The lawsuits accuse Facebook of overpaying $5 billion dollars on a fine from the FTC in an attempt to protect CEO Mark Zuckerberg from personal liability from the infamous Cambridge Analytica leak.

With Afghanistan now firmly in the hands of the Taliban, a full-scale war on women is underway inside that country. Women are being forcibly married, hunted, beaten and killed. Our President and many in Congress want to turn the page. But Zainab Salbi is on the front lines of the fight—and refuses to allow it.  We continue the Independent Americans deep dive into Afghanistan and all the ways it's impacting the world, national security and American politics, with a focus this episode on the 14 million women left to fight and die under Taliban rule.  Zainab Salbi is an activist, author, Founder of Women for Women International, a renowned journalist. And she is a returning guest and audience favorite. She first appeared on this show in May 2019 and is back to break it down.  Raised in Baghdad, Iraq, Zainab grew up as a small girl calling Saddam Hussein her uncle. Her father was Hussein's private pilot and from an early age, Zainab was thrust into the small and twisted circle of the notorious dictator. She escaped an abusive arranged marriage with only $400 in her pocket and would go from working in a Hallmark store in Chicago to receiving honors from the President of the United States at the White House. She now is a best-selling author and one of the most powerful Muslim-American voices in media and politics. Zainab has dedicated her life to the cause of helping women everywhere. And there has been no more urgent crisis than this one.  And with mounting tensions and issues for women everywhere reaching a boiling point, Zainab is the perfect voice for this moment. It's another conversation that keeps it real. With tough lessons--and hard truths. The kind to help you stay vigilant. Because eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.  As always, we're bringing the Righteous Media 5 I's: independence, integrity, information, inspiration and impact.   Our host, national security and political analyst and Army veteran Paul Rieckhoff (@PaulRieckhoff) takes you behind the scenes for candid conversations with top leaders from all backgrounds. It's a bold and blunt perspective you won't find anywhere else on the media landscape. You can support this show and join the community of listeners by joining our IA Patreon community.

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, WREC Radio Host Ben Ferguson fills in for Mark. President Biden has lots of problems from the border chaos, the botched Afghanistan withdrawal, and the budget reconciliation crisis and CNN is covering all of them to distract from Special Counsel Durham's indictment of Clinton Lawyer Michael Sussman. Then, Members of the FBI did the dirty work of the Clinton Campaign and the Democrat National Committee and did it through a web of lawyers. The media spread the lies that promoted the phony Russian Collusion story peddled by Sussman on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Later, John Durham's investigation may lead to Hillary Clinton appearing in front of a grand jury. This investigation may lead as high as officials in the White House and the FBI as well. Afterward, the border chaos continues as all manner of unidentified people including trafficked children and gang members steadily grows. Yet rather than be upset by the Biden-made humanitarian crisis, the White House is investigating the horse-mounted border patrol agents that corralled and grabbed the shirt of a Haitian migrant that crossed the border illegally.
