New footage has been released of the January 6 “insurrection.” Peter Doocy asks Jen Psaki, “Has Joe Biden ever visited the southern border?” Her answer is astounding. Maxine Waters has an interesting and "mixed-up" word on what's going on at the border. More rationing of products coming. We have a great matchup today on More On Trivia: the Green Bay Packers against the San Francisco 49ers. Record number of restaurants continue to close permanently, not only in the U.S. but in Europe as well. Check out this video of the Taliban testing out their new equipment.

In this episode of The Bee Weekly, cancelled standup comedian Josh Denny joins Kyle and Ethan to talk about what's been going on at The Babylon Bee this week, how Hitler opposed vaccine mandates, and how smart people are making blood bricks on Mars. Kyle and Ethan also talk to Dr. Mary Grabar about her new book, Debunking the 1619 Project. Kyle, Ethan, and Josh discuss the Bee's ‘Banger of the Week' and ‘Dud of the Week' and then jump into weird news like how scientists are planning on making blood bricks on Mars, how Hitler opposed vaccine mandates, and a couple that drives drunk together. A man decides to give up his life to become a hobbit, a new beer is illegal in 15 states, and the Taliban's new feared weapon is a paddle boat. Even cats and dogs are getting in on Guinness World Records. Kyle and Ethan talk to Dr. Mary Grabar who has previously debunked Howard Zinn to find out how she debunked the 1619 Project and whether she sleeps in a debunk bed. Someone doesn't like the Bee's new poop emoji shirt in this week's Hate Mail. Finally, the show moves to the subscriber-exclusive lounge where Kyle, Ethan, and Josh go into the Bee archives for the classic article of the week where Jesus turned water into grape juice, subscriber headlines of the week, and bonus hate mail.

The United Nations General Assembly began this week in New York City. The Taliban quickly sought to replace Afghanistan's current representative with one from the new regime. In The Daily Article for September 23, 2021, Ryan Denison considers: Why did the Taliban ask for a seat in the UN? Should the UN accept the Taliban? And how might this be a lesson for Christians?

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. Fox Business Network Financial Correspondent Jackie DeAngelis joins to break down how Facebook's cross check system works and the ways that the company has adjusted its social media regulations and practices throughout the pandemic. She also takes a look back at the Cambridge Analytica scandal of 2015 and how the lawsuit alleging quid pro quo may play out. Plus, commentary from Pastor Robert Jeffress of the Dallas First Baptist Church.
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.

The Boys have never believed the hyperbole, but maybe we are actually losing our country. Military members are facing vaccine mandates, and may face a dishonorable discharge for disobeying. Senator Ron Johnson was asking what would be simple questions for any Secretary of Homeland Security, but genius Alejandro Mayorkas can't answer how many migrants have been dispersed into the country. Portland city officials had a lot of criticism for Texas due to their anti-abortion law, but they were rather quick to walk back their comments. The Taliban is feeling left out after not being invited to the UN General Assembly, despite the fact that there is no definitive leader of Afghanistan. Bill Gates was squirming during his interview with PBS when asked about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, and cited his death as the reason for not addressing the issue. Dr. Anthony Fauci has destroyed his own credibility with his persistent lies, and he is way off when it comes to the statistics on influenza deaths among children. Tucker Carlson absolutely annihilated Chris Cuomo, as well as Don Lemon, and he makes you question the quality of education coming out of Yale University.
Addressing the U.N. General Assembly, Biden pledges "relentless diplomacy" and support for human rights, but the Taliban aren't listening. Plus, a deal to build nuclear submarines for Australia upsets the French. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Australian marathon swimmer Chloë McCardel is due to swim the English Channel for the 44th time – this will break the current World Record. Chloe already holds the world record for the longest unassisted ocean swim, which took place in the Bahamas and totalled 124km. She joins Emma to talk about why she loves the Channel in particular, and open water swimming in general. There are rumours that the new government in Afghanistan might allow girls between 13-18 years old to return to school this weekend, but so far Taliban spokesmen have claimed ‘more time' is needed before making a decision. Emma gets the latest from BBC World Service Reporter Sodaba Haidare and educationalist Pashtana Durrani, who has helped educate hundreds of Afghan women through her non-profit organisation LEARN. Author and podcaster Laura Dockrill speaks to Emma about how her experience of postpartum psychosis three years ago shaped her new book The Dream House, which is about very sad boy called Rex. The National Audit Office has found that years of repeated human errors on outdated IT systems resulted in more than 100,000 people being underpaid a total of £1 billion in state pensions. Most of those affected were women, who are owed an average of nearly £9000. John Chattell's mother Rosemary was underpaid for 20 years, he joins Emma to explain how much money they eventually got back on her behalf. Two years ago a baby at Bronzefield Prison in Surrey died as soon as it was born. When she was giving birth the mother was on her own in a cell. Today a report by the Prison and Probation Ombudsman, Sue McAllister, has come out which is deeply critical of the prison and how it handled the situation. Sue joins Emma.
Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Mittwoch – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Biden ruft "neue Ära" der Diplomatie aus Joe Biden hat sich bei seiner ersten Rede als US-Präsident vor der UN-Vollversammlung zur internationalen Zusammenarbeit bekannt. Mit Blick auf das Ende des Militäreinsatzes in Afghanistan sagte Biden in New York, die Zeit des unerbittlichen Krieges sei beendet, nun werde eine neue Ära der unerbittlichen Diplomatie eröffnet. Die USA wollten auch keinen neuen Kalten Krieg mit China. Nie zuvor sei internationale Zusammenarbeit so wichtig gewesen wie heute, sagte Biden, der mit seinen Alleingängen mehrfach Zweifel an der Verlässlichkeit der Vereinigten Staaten ausgelöst hatte. Die Taliban wollen bei den UN mitreden Die radikalislamischen Taliban wollen nach ihrer Eroberung Afghanistans vor der UN-Vollversammlung sprechen. Das Außenministerium des "Islamischen Emirats von Afghanistan" erbittet in einem Schreiben die Teilnahme an der 76. Generaldebatte. Darin heißt es, der afghanische Präsident Aschraf Ghani sei abgesetzt worden und werde im Ausland nicht mehr als Staatschef des Landes anerkannt. Das UN-Sekretariat leitete das Gesuch an einen zuständigen Ausschuss zur Prüfung weiter. Wer für Afghanistan bei der bis Montag laufenden Debatte sprechen soll, ist noch unklar. China will keine neuen Kohlekraftwerke im Ausland bauen China will nach den Worten von Präsident Xi Jinping keine neuen Kohlekraftwerke im Ausland mehr bauen. Der chinesische Staats- und Parteichef machte die Ankündigung bei der UN-Generaldebatte in New York. China werde stattdessen die Unterstützung anderer Entwicklungsländer bei der Entwicklung grüner und kohlenstoffarmer Energie verstärken, versprach Xi. Sein Land hat als Exporteur bisher Hunderte dieser Kraftwerke in anderen Ländern errichtet. Es baut aber - trotz Kritik von Umweltschützern - im eigenen Land weiterhin neue Kraftwerke. Landesweite Wahlen in Libyen stehen wieder auf der Kippe Das Parlament in Libyen hat der Übergangsregierung das Vertrauen entzogen. Damit ist wieder fraglich, ob die für den 24. Dezember geplanten landesweiten Wahlen stattfinden können. Die Interimsregierung war erst durch Vermittlung der UN gebildet worden. Sie sollte den Machtkampf in dem Land auflösen. Vorher gab es zwei konkurrierende Regierungen: eine international anerkannte mit Sitz in der Hauptstadt Tripolis und eine Gegenregierung im Osten des Landes. Nach dem Sturz von Langzeitmachthaber Muammar Al-Gaddafi im Jahr 2011 ist das nordafrikanische Land extrem instabil. USA belegen Krypto-Handelsplattform SUEX mit Sanktionen Das US-Finanzministerium hat eine Handelsplattform für Kryptowährungen mit Sanktionen belegt. Hintergrund sind mutmaßliche Verbindungen zu Cyberkriminellen. Der in Tschechien angesiedelten digitalen Plattform SUEX wurde das Vermögen in den USA gesperrt, allen US-Bürgerinnen und -Bürgern ist die Nutzung von SUEX unter Strafandrohung untersagt. 40 Prozent aller Transaktionen dieser Plattform hätten Verbindungen zu "illegalen Akteuren" gehabt, heißt es im Ministerium zur Begründung. Konkrete Hackerangriffe oder Datenabflüsse wurden jedoch nicht genannt. Ungeimpfte sollen Corona-Quarantäne aus eigener Tasche zahlen Beschäftigte ohne Corona-Impfung, die in Quarantäne müssen, sollen nicht mehr für ihren Verdienstausfall entschädigt werden. Die Gesundheitsminister von Bund und Ländern beraten an diesem Mittwoch über das geplante Aus für entsprechende Lohnersatzleistungen. Das Infektionsschutzgesetz sieht vor, dass Menschen, die auf behördliche Anweisung in häusliche Isolation müssen und keinen Lohn mehr bekommen, eine staatliche Entschädigung in Höhe des Verdienstausfalls erhalten. Die Entschädigung soll jedoch künftig entfallen, wenn eine Schutzimpfung die Quarantäne hätte vermeiden können. Verbreitung von "Feindeslisten" steht unter Strafe Sogenannte Feindeslisten, wie sie vor allem in rechts- und linksextremen Kreisen kursieren, sind in Deutschland ausdrücklich verboten. Ein entsprechendes Gesetz tritt an diesem Mittwoch in Kraft. Wer die Namen und Daten politischer Gegner verbreitet und die Betroffenen damit in Gefahr bringt, muss nun mit bis zu drei Jahren Gefängnis rechnen. Mit dem neuen Gesetz werden ferner verhetzende Beleidigungen umfassender bestraft. Herabwürdigende Briefe oder Mails galten bislang nicht als Volksverhetzung, weil sie nicht öffentlich verbreitet werden. Diese strafrechtliche Lücke ist jetzt geschlossen.
Thousands of Haitians and other migrants have been camped under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas. Amid the surge at the Texas border, the Biden administration said it is increasing the number of deportation flights to Haiti and resources to the area. President Biden on Tuesday pledged to get the situation "under control" following his speech at the United Nations General Assembly. Meanwhile, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted that the U.S. borders are closed during a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. Former Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf joins to discuss the recent migrant surge and what would needed to be done to actually get the border under control. He also weighs in on the photo of a mounted Border Patrol agent allegedly whipping a migrant. On Tuesday, September 21st. U.S. Senators were able to speak with top U.S. national security officials - FBI Director Christopher Wray, National Counterterrorism Director Christine Abizaid, and DHS Secretary Mayorkas - about how terror threats to the U.S. have evolved over the last 20 years. Many senators cited Afghanistan as the main potential source of terror, with the U.S. already experiencing suicide-bomb attacks from ISIS-K during the military withdrawal military from Afghanistan. Fox News Congressional Correspondent Aishah Hasnie covered the Senate hearing and joined to explain how the testimony revealed the risk ISIS-K and al-Qaeda now pose to the United States, how the recent U.S. drone strike suggested a failure of America's "over the horizon" capabilities and the need for intelligence to assess terror risk from Afghanistan. Hasnie also spoke about how allies in Afghanistan are frustrated and unsure as a result of the U.S. evacuation process and how women in Afghanistan have had their way of life turned upside down now that the Taliban has assumed control. Plus, commentary by Fox News contributor Liz Peek.
A little more than a week after Sniffy Joe's panicked withdrawal from Afghanistan, the ISIS terrorist that killed 13 US Servicemen and 169 Afghans walked out of the Bagram SuperMax prison. Then to make matters worse, Biden ordered a drone strike that killed ten innocent people including 7 children in an effort to cover up his first mistake.

President Biden stresses multilateralism in his first address to the UN General Assembly. So what can the world expect from Biden's pledge to work with other countries to tackle humanity's most pressing problems? We discuss his speech with American political scientist Ian Bremmer and former French ambassador Syvie Bermann. Also in the programme: we look at Pakistan's relationship with the Taliban and its role in Afghanistan, and ask whether the British government's public identification of a third Russian man involved in the notorious 2018 Salisbury poisonings will make any difference to Russian undercover operations. And a glimpse of ancient history, as the United States returns a looted stone tablet to Iraq. (Photo: US President Joe Biden addresses the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York City.

Pakistan's prime minister, Imran Khan, has told the BBC that his country will only recognise Afghanistan's Taliban government if it is inclusive, respects human rights and makes sure Afghanistan isn't used as a base for terrorism. Mr Khan said the idea that girls shouldn't be educated was not an Islamic one. Also, Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, retains office in a snap election but fails in his bid to win an absolute majority. And a third Russian faces charges over his alleged involvement in the 2018 Salisbury poisonings, which left three people critically ill and one dead. (Photo: Imran Khan. Credit: Reuters)

The trend to define one's sex by "gender identity" and not biology is leading to the erasure of women's rights on many important fronts, argues The Economist's Helen Joyce. But, as she warns Danielle, few dare to challenge this radical re-definition of what it means to be a woman (or man). PLUS: Is the Taliban 2.0 ready to take on the empowered women of Afghanistan? The Council on Foreign Relation's Gayle Tzemach Lemmon says: maybe not. She joins Danielle for a glass of wine at the top of the podcast.
Over the last two decades, the Taliban have moved from simply taxing Afghanistan's opium farmers to controlling every link in the chain of the world's biggest heroin supply. In Afghanistan's Opium Nation, we took you through the history of Afghanistan's opium and heroin industry up until the American invasion in 2001. In this episode, we recap the last 20 years of failed efforts to curtail the country's drug trade, detailing how US allies ramped up their growing and trafficking efforts just as the Taliban were doing the same.
In August 2021 the Taliban swept to power in Afghanistan for the second time capturing Kabul and ousting the American backed regime, but where do they come from and what does their return to power mean for the region? To find out more about the history of the Taliban and the impact of them re-conquering Afghanistan Dan is joined by Pakistani journalist and author Ahmed Rashid. Ahmed was the first journalist to meet the Taliban in 1994 and has spent much of his career writing about them and their rise to power. He brings his unique perspective about this much-feared group and to the podcast and explores with Dan their history, path to victory, governing style and the implications of their takeover both for the people of Afghanistan and for neighbouring countries.

The Taliban ordered all schools in Afghanistan to reopen this weekend after months of closure because of COVID-19 and political upheaval. But the future of education for millions of high school girls remains unclear because Taliban leadership banned them from returning to their studies. And a new security pact signed between the US, Australia and the UK took Paris by surprise. It means that a big military contract signed between France and Australia several years ago will be scrapped. Also, Afghans have been welcomed in Turkey over the last few decades. But recently, life has become more difficult for new refugees fleeing the Taliban takeover of their homeland.

Today's show rundown: Mark starts by talking about The National Archives - where we keep all our valuable documents etc. If you go online, to the national archives, and search for the U.S. Constitution...before you get to it, a warning comes up telling you of harmful language. This is just another example of how The Democrats are in charge of everything right now. This is a Statement of how the Left views the Constitution. They have contempt for it, and it is painfully clear. The Left is trying to create a one-party country. In either case, democrat or republican, this would be bad. At best it's a monarchy, at worst, it would be a dictatorship. Neither of these options are what we want or need in America. At a time when every business is struggling to find help, Biden wants to pass a decree that allows people to be terminated for NOT being vaccinated. Many of these things are diversionary to keep our attention off of the failure in Afghanistan. The 10th amendment is under fire...The Left wants to take as much if not all the power away from the States. Biden has said he will use all the power of the federal government to "Fight" the States that are not falling in line with his orders. This is the same reason that the Civil War was originally fought. Many forget that in the beginning The Civil War was not about slavery, not until 3 years in did it pivot to being all about slavery. We jump right in with Sheriff Joe and ask him what is happening at the border. Congress is doing nothing other than talk, Sheriff Joe says he hates to blame Congress, but they need to take the blame. What Sheriff Joe just saw at the border where the US and Laredo are separated by a river, people could just come right across. He saw people with suitcases just wading across the river. Afghanistan is one of the largest players in the Drug Trafficking game, and now we let the Taliban to re-take over. https://twitter.com/realsheriffjoe?lang=en https://www.amazon.com/Sheriff-Joe-Arpaio-American-Legend/dp/1948035952/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1631641201&sr=8-2 Give H2Max a try and let us know what you think: buyh2max.com Help us bring you the best content possible.

Obaidullah Baheer has built his career promoting progress in Afghanistan: He's a university lecturer on intractable conflicts and who advocates for women's and minority rights online. But his life could have wound up very different. As the grandson of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar — the leader of Islamist rebel group Hezb-i-Islami — he was once taught to hate the West and everything it stood for. So how did he turn toward peace instead of war? And, as the Taliban take control of Afghanistan, what can his story tell us about the country's future?

As Afghanistan reaches a turning point with American troops leaving the country, BBC Pashto presenter Sana Safi tells the story of how her own life has been intertwined with the fate of her country. She tells the story of what it was like for a child to survive in a country caught between the crosshairs of geopolitical conflict, of surviving religious fundamentalism, of growing up in a country without music or books. She describes how violence and conflict forced her family to move from Kandahar to Helmand, only to find themselves caught in the crossfire of a gun battle. How under Taliban rule she effectively became a prisoner in her own home. How the continuing decades of conflict brought tragedy to her own family – and how she could only find security by moving to the UK, where she suffered the pain of separation from her family and homeland.
As world attention descends on the United Nations General Assembly, Intelligence Squared U.S. casts a critical lens on this nearly 76-year-old global organization. In light of recent controversies in places like Haiti, and its recent absence in places such as Afghanistan -- where the Taliban has regained control -- questions are mounting as to whether the United Nations itself is both ineffective and outdated. In light of these emerging questions, we ask an especially timely question: Is the United Nations is Obsolete? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

It's time to grapple with the human rights issues ensuing in Afghanistan.To guide us in this important conversation are podcast alums Drs. Ayesha & Dean Sherzai.For those new to the show, ‘Roll On' is typically our opportunity to shift focus from my traditional fare of evergreen conversations to instead hone in on matters of contemporaneous, time-sensitive interest.Today we do just that, but with a twist, spending the entire episode grappling with the very grave plight faced by the 18 million women in Afghanistan in the wake of the United States departure. Breaking down the grip of Taliban rule, this is an exploration and round table discussion led by Team Sherzai.Experts on brain health, Alzheimer's, and neurodegenerative diseases, Drs. Sherzai have twice graced this show for deep dives on maintaining and optimizing cognitive function. But what most don't know is that Dean & Ayesha have considerable experience with Afghanistan.In 2003 Dean was appointed the Deputy Minister of Health by President Karzai, creating the most successful post-conflict healthcare system with women's empowerment at its core. Ayesha founded the Social Welfare Society for Afghan Refugees in medical school, volunteered with Doctors Without Borders' in Afghanistan during her medical training, and co-founded the Afghan Health Initiative in order to empower the Afghan diaspora with their own health.My intention for this conversation is less political—we aren't here to necessarily debate the political advisability of the U.S. withdrawal as much as the incomprehensibly botched manner in which we withdrew—and the downstream human rights implications of Afghan women in particular.Other specific topics discussed include:The history of women's rights in Afghanistan;using healthcare as a catalyst for women's empowerment;a breakdown of the imperative of the Taliban and how it functions;the role that fear plays in female oppression;what we can be done now to aid Afghan women; andhow to support celebrated female artists, scientists, politicians & leaders in Afghanistan.To read more and listen click here.
