China has been sending a record number of military jets into Taiwanese airspace, an indication of its determination to bring Taiwan under its control, and its belief that America is too weak-willed to stop it. Germany is working to form a coalition government, but it is certain to be weak and unstable. The political woes for Europe's leading nation continue, highlighting a yawning leadership void within Europe. The terrorist who killed 13 marines as America evacuated from Afghanistan had just been released from Bagram Air Base after America turned it over to the Taliban—more evidence of chaos by design. We'll also talk about Joe Biden's radical nomination to a key economic post—a Japanese carrier launching a jet for the first time since World War II—illegal immigration surging in America—European border agents beating migrants—and the reason for soaring food prices.

[00:30] Killing America's Economy (21 minutes) Joe Biden believes the vaccine mandates are the most powerful economic stimulus ever enacted. He actually said this the day before the worst jobs report of the year. [21:20] Deleting Maricopa County Election Files (4 minutes) Maricopa County election officials deleted files from voting machine hard drives before turning the “data” over to auditors in the Arizona recount. Why so much obstruction—and why are the media totally disinterested in investigating election fraud? [27:05] Freeing the Kabul Airport Bomber (4 minutes) Immediately after the U.S. shamefully evacuated the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, Taliban terrorists released more than 5,000 prisoners—some of them cold-blooded killers. Among them was one Islamic State terrorist who later detonated a suicide vest at the Abbey Gate outside the Kabul airport, killing 13 American soldiers and hundreds of Afghans. [31:00] January 6 Cases Reveals Highly Politicized Judges (8 minutes) The Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan gave Matthew Marzocco 45 days in prison for posting a selfie of himself in the Capitol Hill building and commenting jokingly, “The Capitol is ours!” Prosecutors weren't even planning to send Marzocco to jail, but the highly politicized Obama-appointed judge sent him to the slammer anyway. [39:00] Bible Study: Eternity Oriented (15 minutes) In God's mind, 1,000 years is as one day! As this present evil world comes to an end, we desperately need God's eternity-oriented mindset to help us look ahead to the future headquarters of the universe—new Jerusalem.

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, the America First Legal Foundation sent a letter to Inspector General Horowitz requesting an investigation into Attorney General Merrick Garland. The letter questions whether Garland's memo may be preventing parents from practicing their constitutional right to protect their children and protest their government. The AFL letter also cites that Garland met with several John and Jane Doe's in the White House to plan a pretext to minimize the effect of parental mobilization, and the political impact such motivated parents could have on the upcoming midterm elections by using federal action against parents. The AFL letter also cites key dates in September 2021 where the Biden Administration concocted a plan -- an inside job -- to deter such a grassroots movement by parents by involving a third party's concocted complaint so that the Patriot Act could be used as a 'solution' to the pseudo-problem that they'd just created to advance their political agenda and stifle the speech of American citizens. Then, Americans' trust in the government and the media has dwindled. Perhaps it's because Sen Mitch McConnell agreed to the disastrous debt limit debacle. There would be no default on the U.S debt service yet frauds in the media are still reporting the exact opposite. Later, Biden's administration is made up of Marxists, and some unabashed bureaucrats even praise the former USSR and Marxian policies. Afterward, Rep.

Sam and Emma host Craig Whitlock, investigative reporter at the Washington Post, to discuss his recent book The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War. Sam and Emma first touch upon the resounding victory for Gavin Newsom in the California recall election from last night, and discuss Newsom's nationalizing of the recall/pinning the results to the "shadow president" for the Republicans (Trump) as a telegraph of the political strategy going forward into 2022. Then Emma and Sam are joined by Craig, who starts out by discussing how him and the Washington Post obtained the Afghanistan Papers, the trove of documents the Post obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that serve as the basis for the book, and how the book timed up perfectly with Biden's announcement of the withdrawal of troops in August, as well as the context behind the "Lessons Learned" project run through a little known federal agency called the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) that was the source of the lion's share of the notes and transcripts that comprised the papers. Craig goes deeper into describing the testimony from the interview transcripts of "Lessons Learned", citing how many past, present, and current military officials considered the war in Afghanistan "much worse than you think", and that "we didn't know what we were doing" in terms of strategic goals in Afghanistan. Craig goes so far as to report that former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld had no appreciable strategy for the war in Afghanistan beyond "chasing terrorists". Sam and Emma dive deeper into the idea that these transcripts and notes were intentionally hidden by the Bush, Obama, and Trump administrations, noting that the SIGAR reports that were publicly disclosed were significantly edited and sanitized. Craig then goes back to the early 2000's, stating that there was a pretty clear game plan for the first 60 days of the war, but that there was no recognizable strategy or timetable for what the United States was doing occupying Afghanistan, especially when George W. Bush made it clear that this was not a "nation-building" project to begin with. The emphasis was also very clearly on Iraq over Afghanistan, to the point where Rumsfeld asked Bush to meet with the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan as well as the commander in Iraq. Bush only wanted to meet with the Iraq commander, and didn't even know who the Afghanistan commander was, and didn't want to meet with him anyways. Craig then pivots to the Obama years, where the Administration very clearly wanted to continue the war without calling it a war, so as to not step on the toes of their allies whose presence in Afghanistan would violate some of their own war-making laws and practices if it was called a war by their allies. Not wanting to call it a war, but not being accurate enough to call it a "peacekeeping mission", the Obama administration landed on the clunky "non-conventional war effort" to split the difference. Afterwards, Craig discloses the combustible report that the Bush Administration furiously attempted to cover up, that former Vice President Dick Cheney was almost killed in a suicide bombing at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, and how this pattern of attempting to spin every negative outcome into a positive one throughout the war persisted across every presidential administration in the 21st century. They end on the warped and strange arc of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's career, how he was a widely respected military official until his full throated embrace of Trump and QAnon stifled that perception, as well as Craig hoping that previous, current, and future administrations will learn from the mistakes of the past 20 years, but doesn't have too much hope because, well, Bush and Rumsfeld didn't learn from the mistakes of Vietnam outlined in, you guessed it, another trove of documents that made clear how badly we were losing a protracted war: The Pentagon Papers. In the Fun Half, Sam gives a brief primer on the fight over taxation between the House and the Senate Dems in the reconciliation mockups going around the Hill, the crew checks in on the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearings where in the House Ilhan Omar grills Secretary of State Blinken over the drone strike that may have killed a foreign aid worker instead of an ISIS-K operative, and in the Senate Idaho Senator Jim Risch gets to more pressing matters, namely: who the heck is pressing the button that controls when Biden talks? Then the crew check in on Ben Shapiro melting down over Cara Delevingne's "Peg the Patriarchy" look at the Met Gala, to which Ben feels the great need to describe what pegging means to him. And FINALLY the crew has the honor of dissecting Tucker Carlson's fascination with Nicki Minaj's cousin's friend's balls after his COVID vaccination (Tucker corrected the record to reflect it was Nicki's cousin's friend, not cousin), Tucker's quest to get him on the show, and we get a real time dispatch from the Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister over whether this dude's balls actually swelled post-vax.

Heinrichs also makes the case that the US should not have abandoned Bagram Air Base near Kabul and explains why this has led to tragedy. She analyzes how the US withdrawal from Afghanistan affects America's geopolitical strategy, particularly its competition with China. Finally, she offers some lessons Americans should learn from Afghanistan.

Darrell Castle talks about a terrible week for the Biden administration, but an even worse week for America. Transcription / Notes A TERRIBLE WEEK Hello this is Darrell Castle with today's Castle Report. This is Friday the 27th day of August 2021 and today I will be talking about the last week we just lived through. It was a terrible week for the Biden administration, but even more terrible for America. 13 dead Marines in Kabul at last count along with hundreds of civilians. That number is exactly 13 more than during the entire last year of the Trump administration. It was all unnecessary so buyer's remorse anyone. The Castle Family is doing pretty well this week considering the week we just went through. Nobody is sick as far as we know and the family daughter is out in LA avoiding the smoke as best she can, but I just hope and pray she is able to avoid the woke. Yes, it has been a terrible week for Joe Biden and for America. 13 dead Marines all good men willing to risk their lives when called upon to do so but unfortunately, they were led by cowardly imbeciles. I'm not talking about their superior officers. I'm referring to the leaders, so called, who sit in the White House and on the joint chiefs. Those leaders are a lot more concerned about teaching critical race theory at the academies and making sure transsexuals are in uniform than in preparing an army to fight and win wars. Kabul is not the only thing that makes this week a terrible Biden week. 22 dead in Middle Tennessee flooding and not a word except that climate change caused it. Millions of illegal migrants flooding across the southern border. Inflation about to reach out of control status. The oil industry broken, perhaps permanently so we have to again go begging to the Saudis. The administration apparently passing a kill list of names to our enemies and finally a President who appears to be in China's pocket. If that were all it would be plenty, but the really bad news is that he is so demented and/or imbecilic he doesn't care. Despite pressure from allies who followed the United States into this debacle, Biden will not extend the August 31st deadline because the Taliban won't allow it and they hold all the cards. U.S. planes both military and commercial fly into and out of Kabul at the Taliban's pleasure. The Taliban have a great many man portable surface to air missiles including the devastating stingers captured from U.S. forces. In addition, Russia has been giving them the SA-7 anti-aircraft systems for years. How many missiles do they have—thousands reportedly. So August 31st, just four days from now, will not be enough time especially since the Taliban will not allow unimpeded passage to the Kabul airport. How did things go so wrong so quickly? The answer lies in Biden's stubborn and idiotic refusal to tolerate anything with Trumps name on it. Trump's plan called for the orderly evacuation of Americans and Afghans who helped American forces over a period of about 90 days. That would be followed by the removal of much of the most dangerous American military equipment and only then would American troops gradually leave. The Taliban agreed to cooperate because it was the only way to get Americans out and get themselves in control of the country. Biden reversed Trump's plan and first extended the deadline to August 31st. Then he abandoned the Bagram Air Base, the largest in the country, which left the remaining U.S. forces and the Afghan military without air support. U.S. troops were gone overnight, and the country was left in the hands of the Afghan army which then turned over its weapons and joined the Taliban. What happened after that has been played out in the media for the last couple of weeks. It seems very likely then, that thousands of U.S. citizens will be abandoned there. As a former military officer, I can tell you that the military can survive its incompetents, its idiots, its fools, but it has a very hard time with leadership which doesn't even...

Last month, whistleblower Daniel Hale was sentenced to 45 months in prison after pleading guilty to violating the Espionage Act in March. During his time in the Air Force from 2009 to 2013, Hale worked with the National Security Agency and the Joint Special Operations Task Force at the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, where he helped identify targets for assassination. He later worked as a contractor for the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. After leaving the Air Force, Hale became an outspoken opponent of the drone program, U.S. Foreign Policy and vocal supporter of whistleblowers. In 2019, Hale was arrested and indicted for leaking classified documents about the U.S. drone assassination program. He's believed to be the source for the Intercept's series called "The Drone Papers." We speak with Noor Mir (@thedronalisa), a close friend of Hale and a member of the Daniel Hale Support Team (@TeamDanielHale), about Daniel's story. She talks about Daniel's background, how he came to be a whistleblower and his current status in federal custody. We also discuss the Espionage Act, Obama's drone wars, and responses to his case on the left, right and in the media. Noor is a DC based organizer, anti-imperialist and rabble-rouser. She was the anti-drone campaigner for Code Pink. More// Support Daniel Hale: https://standwithdanielhale.org/ New York Magazine: Call Me a Traitor.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has her email set to 'out of office,' and President Biden is on vacation. As the Taliban took control of Kabul, the terrorist group also seized Bagram Air Base, freeing thousands of U.S. prisoners, including some of the Taliban's most hardened fighters and senior al Qaeda operatives. Even CNN's Jake Tapper made the comment of how “shockingly” wrong President Biden was when he said it was “highly unlikely” the Taliban would quickly take over Afghanistan.

This episode is sponsored by Insure the Heroes Inc. 10 years ago, this month, I stepped out of a C-130 and onto the flight line at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. I was about to begin my nine-month deployment to Afghanistan, but the truth was my journey to Afghanistan had actually begun four months earlier when I began my combat skills training in Indiana. The training and deployment ended up lasting 361 days. For this episode, I wanted to talk about what I learned during my training, deployment, coming home and by coming home, I don't usually mean immediately coming home, but years. Going to Afghanistan for me had a huge impact on my life. Before I had kids, I could say there was the Amanda before Afghanistan and the Amanda after Afghanistan. Now there is this window between when I got home from Afghanistan. After being home and how those experiences still affected my life, even though I had been home for years and when I had kids, and then my life kind of changed all over again. But definitely my deployment has played a huge role in who I am today and where I am right now. See the full transcript on the blog here.

A note to the reader: I purchased these letters at the bazaar outside the gates of the Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan in 2006. I was working that winter for a humanitarian organization in Kabul. The bazaar was a row of shipping containers and battered tarpaulins along the road to the base’s fortified gates. Military vehicles rumbled past, splattering sleet and mud. Inside the containers, merchants warmed their chapped hands before makeshift propane heaters and haggled over cold piles of misappropriated objects. | Copyright 2019 by Ray Nayler.

That book details Sean's time in Afghanistan commanding the Army's 10th Mountain Division, and we get into some excellent stories about the brave men he served with as Sean joins us in studio for this hour. We talk about the disconnect between some of the leadership of the Army that is stationed in Bagram Air Base not seeing the level of combat as the boots on the ground experiencing the fight first hand. Sean has a new book out though, and it's actually a military thriller. It's called "Man of War," and it just hit shelves this week. We discuss the transition from fiction to nonfiction, and the inspiration behind the book's protagonist Eric Steele. "Man of War" has received high praise from the likes of Lee Child and more, we hope that you pick it up. Sean has also given back to the community with his charity American Warrior Initiative helping men and women who serve in combat with important transition tools like finding housing once they come back home. We enjoyed having him on, and only hit the surface, so hopefully there will be a return appearance in the near future. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

"It was like walking onto the surface of the moon," Graham Elwood says of his first experience walking off of a C-17 in Afghanistan. His experience was not unlike many of our own first times deploying to a far-off edge of the world. We take a long, long C-17 (or god help you, C-130) ride for seemingly endless hours. There are no windows. The plane is packed. Forget about an in-flight movie or looking out the window. And when you walk off, it's invariably the middle of the night and you and the hundred or so people you're with walk off the flightline in a single file. From there, who knows? There's a good chance the "hurry up and wait" has just begun. For civilians visiting war zones for the first time, it's no different – except they have no idea how to speak the acronym language. "They said 'When your bird hits the LZ, find your POC, they'll take you to the MWR tent then you can go to the DFAC,'" he jokes. "It's like... what are you saying to me right now, man?" Elwood is a Los Angeles-based comedian with appearances in comedy clubs across America, on college campuses, and even CBS' Late Late Show. He's also a veteran podcaster with shows like Comedy Film Nerds, and The Political Vigilante, and he's a co-creator of the Los Angeles Podcast Festival. None of that prepared him for performing for U.S. troops deployed in combat zones. His first documentary, Laffghanistan: Comedy Down Range, is about his first time volunteering to go do just that. It's amazing how fast you can go from playing the Hollywood Improv to playing Bagram Air Base. For someone who admits he's pretty far removed from the Global War on Terror, it all came home to him when went around the small firebases of Afghanistan. It was his first time in helicopters, driving in unarmored vehicles on the ground in Afghanistan, and seeing minefields. It got real for him for him real fast. "What was said to me and what I've said to other comedians," he says. "Well don't go over there if you don't want to be changed. It will change you. You have no idea. This is no joke." Now that Elwood has done a number of these shows and tours around deployed military bases, he looks back at his first experience in this episode of Mandatory Fun. Nothing could adequately prepare him for performing a comedy act in Afghanistan. All the dive bars and sh*t holes he played as a young comedian is the best thing he could do to prepare. He was still freaking out but couldn't help but put himself in the shoes of young troops. "I'm here for two weeks," Elwood says. "and MY family is freaking out. Imagine them and  their families and how much they're freaking out." But they quickly realized that they need to be the comics. They were there for a reason: to give American troops fighting overseas a few laughs, a taste of a normal night, and a show to help ease their tension, even if it was only for a short time.   Mandatory Fun is hosted By: Blake Stilwell: Air Force veteran and Managing Editor Tim Kirkpatrick: Navy veteran and Editorial Coordinator Orvelin Valle (aka O.V.): Navy veteran and Podcast Producer Catch the show on Twitter at: @MandoFun and on our Facebook group.

We're sorry, the rights for this video have expired. | Listen to the AudioJUDY WOODRUFF: The U.N.’s nuclear watchdog conceded that its progress investigating Iran’s nuclear program has hit a wall. The latest confidential report by the International Atomic Energy Agency was obtained by several news media outlets. It said the IAEA had satellite imagery showing ongoing construction activity a Parchin military base, a suspected nuclear site. It also revealed that Tehran had only implemented three out of five measures to be more transparent under a deal with the IAEA. Iran denies that it wants or is working on nuclear arms. A plane chartered by coalition forces in Afghanistan, and carrying about 100 Americans, had to land in Iran today after filing the wrong flight plan. The Washington Post first reported the incident. Iranian air traffic control reportedly asked the plane to return to Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, but it didn’t have enough fuel. A senior State Department official said the issue has been resolved and the plane is scheduled to resume its flight. There was new information released today on one of the deadliest friendly-fire episodes of the war in Afghanistan. An investigation by the U.S. military into the June episode found communication errors led to the deaths of five American soldiers and one Afghan. The incident happened in Zabul province when a B-1 bomber crew failed to check their information properly before launching two laser-guided bombs which hit the soldiers. The Pentagon confirmed the death of the leader of the African terror group Al-Shabab today. Ahmed Abdi Godane was killed in a U.S. airstrike on Monday in Somalia. In a statement, the Defense Department said it was a major symbolic and operational loss for the terrorist organization. Flash floods and landslides sparked by torrential monsoon rains have killed at least 116 people in Eastern Pakistan and Kashmir. Swollen rivers today swept away buildings and bridges and left many trapped on their own rooftops. Soldiers and emergency workers used boats and helicopters to ferry the stranded to safety. The flooding was forecast to intensify this weekend. A third American aid worker infected with the Ebola virus in Liberia is now in stable condition in Nebraska. Dr. Rick Sacra arrived at a hospital in Omaha early this morning with a police escort. He had been evacuated from West Africa. The 51-year-old delivered babies at a Liberia hospital, and it’s still unclear how he contracted the virus. The head of the Nebraska Center’s Infectious Diseases Division said the patient is in a specially equipped bio-containment unit. DR. MARK RUPP, Infectious Diseases Division Chief, Nebraska Medical Center:  We’re doing our basic checks on him right now with getting some of our baseline laboratories, making sure that his fluid status is equilibrated, that his electrolytes are in control. We know that he is seriously ill with a virus that has a fairly high mortality rate associated with it. Like I said, we will continue to care for him with very aggressive, supportive care, and we’re looking into alternatives for some of our experimental therapeutics right now. JUDY WOODRUFF: Two other American health workers who contracted the virus in Liberia were treated and cured at Emory University in Atlanta. Also today, the World Health Organization reported the death toll in West Africa from the Ebola outbreak passed the 2,000 mark. Half of those deaths were in Liberia. Job growth slowed in August, as U.S. employers hired fewer workers than analysts had expected. But stocks on Wall Street seemed undeterred by the news. The Dow Jones industrial average gained more than 67 points to close at 17,137; the Nasdaq rose 20 points to close above 4,582; and the S&P 500 added 10 points to finish at 2,007. For the week, the Dow, the Nasdaq, and the S&P all rose a fraction of a percent. And in a special piece of good news, the California blue whale has bounced back from near extinction. A study done at the University of Washington found that they have recovered to number about 2,200 in the Pacific Ocean. That’s about 97 percent of historic 19th century levels. But the largest animals on earth are still vulnerable to being stuck by large ships. The post News Wrap: Head of African terror group, Al Shabaab is dead appeared first on PBS NewsHour.
