Speaker 1:

Hello, my friends. And welcome back to yet. Another episode of watching the Watchers live. My name is Robert Mueller. I am a criminal defense attorney here at the RNR law group in the always beautiful and sunny Scottsdale Arizona, where my team and I over the course of many years have represented thousands of good people facing criminal charges. And throughout our time in practice, we have seen a lot of problems with our justice system. I'm talking about misconduct involving the police. We have prosecutors behaving poorly. We've got judges, not particularly interested in a little thing called justice. And it all starts with the politicians, the people at the top, the ones who write the rules and pass the laws that they expect you and me to follow, but sometimes have a little bit of difficulty doing so themselves. That's why we started this show called watching the Watchers so that together with your help, we can shine that big, beautiful spotlight of accountability and transparency down upon our system with the hope of finding justice. And we're grateful that you are here and with us today because we've got a lot to get into a little bit of a busy weekend, especially over there in the middle east. And we're going to talk all about it. Joe Biden was out here to Ted day this afternoon, giving us a breakdown, an explanation about what happened in Afghanistan and where this administration is going in the near future. And so we got kind of some answers, but not a lot of them. He spoke for about 18 minutes. We're going to go through it. We're also going to poke around and take a look at what the rest of the media is saying. We're going to check out what the New York times had to say, Washington post USA today, and some of the others, and then also kind of , uh, go through Joe Biden's speech and then see how it might fit in the framework of the entire world. The globe, China is responding and some other countries are as well. So we're going to spend some time dissecting the Afghanistan debacle have already done a lot of that last week, but we're going to see what we can tease out of. Today's recent events. Then we're going to change gears. And we're going to talk about what is taking place in New York. As we know, we've been talking a lot about the key to NYC. These are the vaccine mandates that DeBlasio is rolling out starting tomorrow. August 17th is going to be the day that it rolls out at least for an educational component. So they're going to be talking about these vaccine passports in New York city for about the next couple of weeks. I believe it is. And then full enforcement's going to take place in September. And so what we're going to do today is the de Blasio administration. They're in New York city. They came out with this frequently asked questions. Some of these guidelines for what you have to do now under the new totalitarian regime where you have these two separate economies, one for the VAX , one for the [inaudible] . So we have a dictator DeBlasio came out and is now telling everybody all of the New York citizens there , how they can participate in New York city. If you're good, if you do what we say, you can participate in the economy. You're welcome for your Liberty. Otherwise you don't even come here. Don't even bother. We don't want you. So the Blasio we're going to spend some time going through this frequently, asked questions and see what we can tease out of that. And then lastly, troubling, a little bulletin came out from our department of Homeland security. The secretary there, his name is Alejandro Mayorkas and he posted this bulletin on Friday as the whole world was watching Afghanistan crumble and sort of opining about how, how embarrassing this whole situation is globally. The , the Biden administration just kind of snuck out this little, little report talking about some problematic new extremists that the administration has identified. We've already talked a lot about these extremists and they have all of these different labels, like , um , you know, homegrown, violent extremists. Okay. So H V E then we have the domestic violent extremist. Okay. So D V E and now we've got a new one. So if you're keeping track at home, if you're playing bingo with all of the different forms of extremism that now exist , we're going to have a new one to add to your board. And so we've got a lot to get into. If you want to be a part of the show, I would love it. If you chimed in and then drop some comments and some questions here today, there's a good place to do that. It's over it . Watching the watchers.locals.com, where there's some people chatting away over there right now, we've got tos for Evers in the house. Bum, a Likud is over there. I'm not gas. Want to know speech unleashed, greetings to all of you. Justice obsessed as well, all chiming in and talking over it, watching the watchers.locals.com. If you're a supporter, there, there is a form that you can use to add some questions or drop some comments and you leave some comment or criticism, whatever you want to ask in there, there's a nice big form that you can use. And so we can really get into some meat and potatoes here in the show. Also shout outs over to you on YouTube, big appreciations, over to Tim Granville, playing hooky. Number one, we got N J pat 65, a straight and narrow. We're also taking super chats. This one came in last week from Eddie Oliver. And so they'll pop up on the screen. If you want to show your support that way, we'll take those questions as well. All right? So without any further ado, let's get into the news of the day. Shall we click that slide over right there? Afghanistan, we've been watching this debacle unfold. Some people call it a catastrophe. Some people call it inevitable that this was going to happen no matter what administration was in charge, no matter how the United States ever sought to eject itself from this mess in the middle east, or some people are asking on the flip side of that. Well, why did we leave in the first place? You know, maybe this was something that we should have had a stronger presence there. And so, as we have been watching in almost horror and discussed the rapid pace at which the entire situation just crumbled before our very eyes. If you recall that in the lead up to this, we've talked about it here on the show. We're not going to do a post-mortem on all of that. But Joe Biden, Anthony Blinken, they were saying for a long time in conjunction with all of our military intelligence, all of the generals were all over the media. This is not going to be a problem. We've got it figured out. We've got contingencies planned every which way. Then as the withdrawals starts, we see a different story. We see this cascade of panic from our own embassy, from our own adults in the room who are now supposed to be in charge of this stuff. We're seeing scrambling troops were pulled out and then sent back in. And everybody, including people in the mainstream media, people who were generally would be very favorable to the Biden administration are left, scratching their heads , saying what the heck just happened. I thought we elected the adults, the sophisticated people. I thought this was the administration that was supposed to regain America standing in the world because that orange Cheeto was so destructive to the countries , standing on the global stage, that only Joe Biden, only a man who could be in government for the last 40 years only. Could he restore the beauty of America standing throughout the globe, and now it's not happening. Now, we're seeing a very long list of people who are upset with what the United States has gotten themselves into and how they are leaving on the way out. So we're going to spend some time taking a quick look at what the other media had to say. Here is what the New York times was trimming in about. It says that the Taliban capture Kabul stunning us as a 20 year effort unravels in days. They're even surprised about it. They say panic spreads is thousands. Try to escape. They say, after a week under new rulers, Kunduz maybe a hint of future. I think that's talking about Afghanistan. We have here for Biden. These are images that he wanted to avoid, right? So a whole front page, everything above the fold, Monday, August 16th for posterity, we'll go through it from the New York times, not a good headline, not a good day there for Joe Biden and the Biden and administration over here with the Washington post big headline from them. Afghanistan falls to the Taliban. The same Taliban that many people were saying , uh , for a long time had already been defeated. George Bush said that they were on their way out, long, long time ago. And , uh , it's been sort of the same story. Indefinitely Washington post is acknowledging and saying that militants face little resistance as they overtake. Qubole concluding that a surge, a concluding a surge that far outpaced us estimates, begging the question. Why is this something that the administration was not prepared for? The Pentagon rushes, additional troops to capital aid in chaotic effort to evacuate the personnel. They say desertions and illegal deals accelerated the military collapse. So if Afghanistan collapsed and there were desertions and illegal deals, are we ever going to get the bottom of that? It says afraid for lives. Activists plead for help. Biden takes a cold eyed view of the debacle, which is a little bit unusual for Joe he's old grandpa Joe, very friendly. You know him , Joe. Yeah. We're just, you know, I'm just go lucky , happy go . Lucky Joe. And now Joe is pretty stern. People are wondering what that looks like. What that about face was all about president fleas , thousands clamor to board the flights. We're going to take a look at some of what happened there over at the wall street journal. We have Taliban seizes power as the U S retreats. And you see them rolling into Qubole just in a victory , uh , taking control of the entire city fighters . Take control of the Capitol as the president fleets and concedes D uh , defeat Biden stands by troop withdrawal. Despite the criticism that there's a desperate rush to get out there saying that this was Saigon on steroids here at the wall street journal. This was a quote from another person who was nearby. So this is not a good day for the Biden administration and any of these Saigon comparisons. You may have seen them. We saw this picture over at the USA today, this Chinook helicopter flying over an American embassy in Kabul . This was the exact scene. The Joe Biden said that he did not want to see. In fact, when people were asking him about this saying, there's absolutely no way that this is going to happen specifically. There's no way that we're going to have a helicopter that is taking people out of American embassies like we had in Saigon. And I know there's some little detailed facts. Well , is it really the , the embassy and all of that, but the point here, it is kind of the same thing, right? This was a catastrophic collapse happened from like a Friday to a Sunday, within a couple of days, the entire city had been seized. And this was exactly what they said would not happen. Joe Biden was asked about this said, is it possible that this could look like Vietnam? Or could this be anything like that? And they said, and he said specifically, no, absolutely not. Well, why not? Because we , they have 300,000 well-armed troops, they've got an air force. They've got a lot of the infrastructure that any modern military would have. And so necessarily they'll be able to, but to rebut any attack from the Taliban. Well, that's not what happened at all. We see here, our USA today, actual photographs of a Chinook helicopter coming in and pulling people out of the embassy in exact lead . The fashion that Joe Biden said it would not happen. So Afghanistan falls, Taliban seizes. The capital government collapsed us scrambles to evacuate as panic grips the Afghans. We have decades after nine 11, we have now a whole new set of new security fears. And so we're getting ready for that. We're already seeing them talk about , uh , the terrorists. Now that boogeyman is going to be right , you know , brought right back to life because Al Qaeda is now congregating and , uh , they're accelerating all of their, you know, their evil, dark plans. And so we've already got a pivot towards domestic terrorism. We're going to talk about here in the last segment on this channel, but we've also got now the , uh, the resurgence of international terrorism. And so we're going to be seeing a lot of that, of course. Uh, oh, we got to , you know, make sure that we make all of our liberties that have already not been stripped from us due to the pandemic, make sure that those are ready and available to turn over to the government. Soon as the new international terrorist become , uh , the, the boogeyman yet again. So we've seen a lot of this us citizens they take in Qubole, they're told to take shelter, so no preparation, we got us citizens just like, Hey, good luck. Figure it out. Find shelter. Uh , airport is just completely ransacked. We have analysis here from Susan Page says America's chaotic. Exit is Biden's big defeat . And so a lot of that, right? A lot of the people who traditionally prior, you know, a week ago where , you know , Joe Biden's in charge, finally, it's a return to norm America's back in the game. And then we see this just a botched . The whole thing is completely botched. This was a picture from the palace. You've probably seen most of these. We'll just make sure we plug these in here, just for posterity, for future generations. And for this , uh, for this sake, we have , uh , this, the Taliban, they they're in the palace, they're sitting, you know, this is the equivalent of the oval office, the , uh , the resolute desk there , whatever they might call that they're in Afghanistan. And they've, they're , they're behind it. The , the , the Taliban. Uh , okay, so you've got that going. Uh, we've seen that. We've seen most of the imagery. There's a lot of troubling things coming out. This was, I think, earlier this morning, and this is a troubling scene. It's going to cut short. So we're not going to see anybody die, but you'll, you'll note that once this airplane does take off into the air, that there are people that we're going to see who were attached to it, that then later fall off and plunge presumably to their death has not been confirmed. Of course , uh , to me, I think it's all sort of been presumed in the media, but , uh, we're not going to watch any of that, right? We're going to keep this stuff. So all of the gruesome stuff is not going to come into play here, but this is a scene. You probably saw this. This was from the airport. This is a us air force , uh , carrier that is filled with people. And we're going to show a picture of that later in, on this segment, but you can see what's happening here. The entire runway is just filled with people who are, some of them are celebrating. I think some of them are cheering. Some of them are having fun. Some of them are scared to death and trying to get out of there. And so, you know, we're watching this stuff and it's easy for people to sort of, well, you know, it's not my problem. It's not our fault. Well , I don't care anymore. Afghanistan is Afghanistan. And , uh, you know, the United States has spent enough blood and, and , uh, money and time and resources over there that people just say, well, I don't care anymore. Right? This is all over. And so what, it's Afghanistan, and I'm just not so quick to do that. You know, these are people who are trying to improve their lives. They're trying to live and not be killed. And so it's, it's, it's a sad thing what we're seeing here. Uh, but this is, you know, this is another government caused disaster and our government got involved in this and , uh, they've been botching it for the last 20 years. This is the scene.

Speaker 2:

[inaudible]

Speaker 1:

All right . So sorry about that audio quite loud. I know, but, oh, right. So you saw just what happened there. Okay. They are literally hanging onto the side of the airplane, trying to escape as the air forces , just pulling off. So , uh, not, not a good situation. That is the us air force, right? This is like one of those scenes from a terrible scifi movie. When , uh, you know, all of the people are sort of abandoning the space ship and people are clawing to get into the escape vessel before everything explodes. It's not a good scene. It looks like the us government is incompetent. It looks like there was nothing that was planned. We have a situation here where there's a lot of harm to that airplane, right? To that, to, to the, to the pilots, to the U S citizens who were presumably on board . And we heard from the media today or from the administration today that no, we, for all of these contingencies, I mean, we had it all figured out. We knew what we were doing. And so , uh, there was some expectation that this might maybe could possibly happen. And , uh , and so we were prepared for that. That's why we had all of the troops standing by ready to go back in. It's sort of like, you know, when you're, when you're walking down the street and you slip and you look like a moron and you get back up and you look around to see if anybody saw that, you're like, nobody see that, and you just keep walking about your business. Well, we saw it. Yeah. We saw all of this. Right. We saw the flub. It's not okay for them to come back out here and say, well, this everything's fine. Right. We plan for this. Obviously we knew this could happen. And so this is just going, according to plan, this doesn't look like it's going, according to anybody's plan, it looks like the U S air force is , uh, is barely getting out of a zombie movie where they're trying to, you know, escape the zombie horde . It is a catastrophe. It makes the U S looking competent. And , uh , regardless of what you want to say about whether we should be in Afghanistan or not, it's embarrassing. It looks like a disaster , uh , because it is now , uh , there are some, you know, in all of this tragedy, there is, are some moments of , uh, I guess more tragedy, or if you want to sort of , uh , have fun with it. Look at it with a little bit of levity. We have , uh , here we have somebody from CNN, big Joe Biden network, a lot of fans over there. We have Clarissa ward. It's funny that her dress code changed in literally one day. So representative Vicky, Hartzler posted this on Twitter, said her dress coast code in Afghanistan compared to the day showcasing how crushing Joe Biden's and competence will be for the future of Afghan women. And so, you know, I gotta be honest, this woman is , uh , really impressive. The fact that she's over there right now, and that she's still there, it's August 16th. And so all the prayers in the world to her, hopefully she's doing well. And her families , uh, you know, at some peace because she's in the middle of a war zone. But , uh, I mean, kudos to her, got some serious kahunas over there. And it says on August 15th, we see right. She is not wearing a hijab. Then the next day, well, the city changed power. And now we have her in a nice hijab. So she puts on the, the , the outfit of the local environment. And that changed pretty quickly. Here is a closer up shot of this from CNN. This was a couple of days ago, I think maybe yesterday. And then it all changes. This is a scene here where she's, she's actually still sort of explaining this weird disconnect saying, well, they're here and they're saying death to America, but they're actually pretty friendly.

Speaker 3:

They're just chanting death to America, but they seem friendly at the same time. It's utterly bizarre at the present.

Speaker 1:

So she's getting a lot of grief for that for saying, you know, it's utterly bizarre because it reminds everybody of the , uh, w what was the other one? Oh, the CNN fiery, but peaceful protests back during the BLM protest during the summer of unrest, remember all of those where that CNN reporter was like, well, yeah, I mean, all of these buildings are burning down to the ground, but it's pretty peaceful. You know, nobody's actually killing me. So all of this other mayhem and destruction, don't worry about that. It's mostly peaceful. So it kind of the same concept here with this , uh , Clarissa over from CNN saying, no, I mean, they're shouting death to America, but otherwise they're pretty friendly. And if you take a look at this screenshot, you can sort of see her disdain here. This image was , uh, you know, not , not to poke fun too much at her, but she has that face sort of like , uh , I can't believe I'm here. I can't believe this is happening right now. Right. She has that face when I make a dumb remark to my , uh, you know, my girlfriend or anybody. This is kind of the face that I get from them. Like, are you serious right now? Are you enough? Rob? Come on. That's ridiculous. Uh , this guy over here is very happy about the situation he's looking at Clarissa, and he's saying to her, huh? Well, that's about right. Yeah. Yesterday you were here. You didn't have this a job on, but now you're here. Now you have the job on. So he's very, very happy about it. Sort of just looking at her, just like, yeah, we're in charge now it's hit job season, right. This guy seems like he might be enjoying it too. And so, you know, CNN is learning to play ball with the new administration, the same people who are ranting and raving about, you know, Donald Trump being a , a backward xenophobic monster who hates women and all of that stuff, Joe Biden comes in. This is the new situation in Afghanistan. So I hope they're enjoying that. And it's who they voted for at all. Right. So enough of that, let's take a look at what Joe Biden had to say. He gave a speech today. You may recall he was over at camp David for a very, a couple of short couple days. Apparently he was on a vacation, was supposed to be there through a Wednesday. The Taliban, you know, they just they're inconvenient. They didn't check his calendar. They didn't realize that he was out of the white house out of office. And so they just went and did their , uh , insurrection, their seizure of a democracy. They just took it over Joe Biden. Wasn't really bothered to , to really address that until today. And a lot of people on Twitter were saying, well, it's the weekend, you know, he's tired. And he's probably working really hard. And , uh , so give them a little bit of slack. So then when the boiling point reached fever pitch, what happened was the white house said, oh, well, we better get a statement out here. This is looking pretty bad. So they picked Joe Biden up. They flew him over to the white house. He talked for 18 minutes, took no questions, not a single question, turned around and just made a beeline, right for the door to get out of there faster than anybody who wanted to get out of Qubole, they'd just gone. And he didn't want to even talk to anybody. And so a lot of people are scratching their heads about this saying, wow , that's a little bit concerning because then he hopped back onto an airplane and went right back to camp David right back to his vacation. So we've got about 18 minutes out of the man. And then he deferred the rest of this over to his administration. This is , uh , uh , one of the most experienced politicians in our entire country, but he spent an office longer than I've been alive. And so now he is , uh, supposed to be guiding us with his steady hand through this crisis. And he got, we got 18 minutes, not a single question. And that's it. So you can, you , you can criticize the, the decision to leave Afghanistan, whether you want to be there anymore or not. That's one issue. You can have a conversation about whether the departure, whether you agree what we should stay there, or think that we should leave. You can also have some problems with the departure. You can say, well, that was botched. It should have been done a lot more cohesively with a lot more coordination. And then you can even have another layer of criticism here. You could say his response to the botching is also pretty bad. So we're going to take a look at this. I'm not going to dunk on him, the entirety of the speech. There are some , uh , some of this that I actually like , he sounds very much like Donald Trump, or like somebody who is also tired of foreign wars, which I am very much tired of. Right? I haven't been ever somebody who has been , uh , uh, understanding of what we're doing over there. I have , I've , I've lost sight of what America's interests are fighting for the middle east fighting for that little pocket of land , uh, for, for a long time now. And I think a lot of Americans agree with that. So Joe Biden comes out here and now we can sort of measure him in terms of his leadership, right there , the decision to leave Afghanistan, one decision on that, the decision about how to leave Afghanistan, another one. And then the response to the botch is another example where we can measure his leadership ability. And so we'll take a couple of , of these clips. I've got three clips, ones , good ones, okay. And ones , uh , you know , kind of bad. Let's start with the bad one. First. This is where he's trying to , to blame Donald Trump. And this is logically inconsistent. This is why this is bad. And I don't care the fact that he blames Donald Trump, but it's just, it's just logically inconsistent. It doesn't make any sense because what you're going to hear him say is sort of blame the predecessor blame Donald Trump. We've heard this a lot that Donald Trump , uh , already put this plan in place. So he had an agreement with the Taliban. Donald Trump is saying now, well, but we had conditions before we were going to withdraw. We were going to make them meet certain markers. And we would have never left in the way that you left. And Joe Biden and his administration had been trying to say, well, our hands were tied. We were put into a box here by Donald Trump. He entered into this agreement. We had to honor this thing. And if we didn't honor it, it would have required us to go back to war and all of that stuff. So he goes through this little, you know , uh , banter about blaming the prior administration before pivoting and saying, but it's the right thing to do. And he gives us a bunch of reasons as to why that is. So it's either, he's upset that Donald Trump's sort of forced his hand or he's in agreement that Donald Trump was right and this needed to happen and he's making it happen. So then I don't understand what the criticism is. So he's trying to have it both ways. To me, it felt like the speech writer, somebody just had to put a little section in there to dunk on Donald Trump and to try to deflate the defray, the blame some a little bit, but we're going to see here, why that is just not appropriate. Let's take a look here. This is what Joe Biden had to say this afternoon. For 18 minutes.

Speaker 4:

When I came into office, I inherited a deal. The president Trump negotiated with the Tali Mon K under his agreement, us forces would be out of Afghanistan by May 1st, 2021, just a little over three months after I took office. Yeah. Us forces that already drawn down during the Trump administration from roughly 15,500 American forces to 2,500 troops in country. And the Tali bond was at its strongest militarily since 2001, the choice I had to make as your president was either to follow through on that agreement, or be prepared to go back to fighting the Taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season.

Speaker 1:

Okay. So you see what he's doing there, right? He's framing it to say, well, look, I really was left with no options. I had no choice, but to honor the prior administrations prior agreements, and there's, you can get into the complexities here, right? You can say, well, that's agreement had conditions and that agreement had this and blah, blah, blah, and the fighting season and spring and all of this crap, it's all crap. Right? All of those excuses are garbage, right? We've been in Afghanistan for 20 years, right? Another year to secure a more competent withdrawal is like, not that big of a deal in my humble opinion. Uh , it , it is a big deal. But when you're talking about these types of conversations between the administration and military officials to , to avoid this botching, I think that they would have agreed maybe another year, another six months or whatever it is, would have been appropriate. In other words, to use that as an excuse, I think is just an absolute joke. We know that the administration has rolled back many other Trump policies. Here's a quick look, a couple of them. If you go onto Google and just search Biden, reverses, Trump put that in parentheses and quotes there, you'll see Biden revokes a Trump era executive action on immigration. Right? Huge issue. We have another one executive order, banning diversity, right? He Biden reverses Trump. Another one there Biden reverses Trump policies on healthcare , abortion COVID that was in January Biden, reverses Trump efforts on tick tock, tick tock. Okay. That was in June Biden , reverses Trump order , barring immigrants. Okay. That was in may another one, Biden reverses , Trump limiting us nursing home, blah, blah, blah, whatever. Another one, Biden reverses. Trump changes bank to bank. [inaudible] the list goes on and on. He got into office and reversed everything, everything. So for him to come out here and say , well , my hands were tied. It is total nonsense. They could have easily manipulated the , the agreements and , and , and secured a more favorable withdrawal. Whether you think that that was appropriate or worth it or not is a whole separate conversation. But this was sort of a throwaway clip from Biden to just dump it back on Donald Trump. Uh, okay. So that's fine. I think that's part of the, you're probably one of the , um , the, the less effective parts of the speech. It seems to me like he is trying to pass the buck to somebody else at the same time. When , if you listen to the full speech, he talks a lot about the buck stops with me, right. It all stops with me. It's my decision. I double down on it. I stand by it. I confirmed that it was the right thing to do, but my hands were tied. And it's also sort of a problem for me because the last guy put me in this position. Well, if that, if it's the right thing to do well, then why is that a problem? And you certainly did make some adjustments. You didn't follow his plan to a T , did you? You adjusted the whole thing. And so you are as the president responsible for that. And so to try to blame the last administration, I think it was just ineffective, of course, though. Uh, but it is part of a Biden speech. You got to put in something to dig against the prior administration, including Donald Trump. All right. And so that was that segment. Let's take a look at this one. Now this is where Joe Biden is doubling down on it saying I stand firmly behind my decision and gives us a little bit of a breakdown as to what happened here. He is.

Speaker 4:

I stand squarely behind my decision. After 20 years, I've learned the hard way that there was never a good time to withdraw us forces. That's why we're still there. We were clear-eyed about the risks we plan for every contingency, but there it is. I always promised the American people that I will be straight with you. The truth is this did unfold more quickly than we had anticipated.

Speaker 1:

Okay. Okay. So you plan for every contingency, but it also happened a lot more quickly than you anticipated. So did you not actually prepare for that contingency then, or not? Because if you did, it sounds like you kind of botched that didn't you, because you sent another 5,000, 6,000 troops back in there. If you had it orchestrated properly, I would guess that you don't have to go back and send more troops in there. So he goes out there and he's doing all he can do. Right. There's what else are you supposed to say here? Other than, yeah, didn't go exactly as we thought, but still the right move. And so they're trying to paper over this thing now where I think this is another area where criticism is appropriate is again, regardless of what you think about the decision, regardless of whether we should be in Afghanistan or not. That's important of course, but the bigger point is more about the environment surrounding these decisions. Okay. Joe Biden, Anthony Blinken. These were two elected officials of the United States government in the highest positions, the president and the secretary of state. They both told us the entire country in many of their press briefings and interviews that they gave before any of this stuff happened, that this was not a possibility that it would not be a situation. Anthony Blinken said specifically would not be like a Friday to a Sunday thing. It exactly was Joe Biden said it wouldn't look like Saigon. It did exactly did. It is still a debacle. We still have us citizens and people who were still trying to bore planes. And the administration has been basically asleep at the wheel , uh, over the last several days. So the question here, if you're going to be analyzing what happened is where was this breakdown? Where was the disconnect between the administration and what was happening in reality? Because they told us something. So my question is, was the military and the intelligence community giving bad information that they were not digesting or that they were digesting and then regurgitating to the American people. Everything's fine. A withdrawal is going to work fine. The Taliban is not going to seize Qubole. The Afghan army is competent. Joe says, okay, thank you for the report generals. And I'm going to go deliver that message to the American people. If that's the case, how can you be mad at Joe Biden over that? You can't, if it's the generals who were lying to him, who were lying to Donald Trump who were lying to George Bush, or whatever's going on with the military or the intelligence community, that's not on Joe Biden, he's got to trust his, his generals and his intelligence community. And so that's a very important point. We have to decipher that. What is going on there? Where is the breakdown? Is it from the ground to the military? Is it between the interface between the military and the Afghan? Uh , the people, is it between the military and the U S government? Are they all in it together? And they're all just lying to the American people what's going on here, who should be held accountable for this? Because we have thousands of dead Americans. We have billions of dollars that have been just absconded and thrown in somebody's bank accounts , somewhere, all over the world. And the entire middle east is now in a catastrophe mode. So , uh , it would be, would be good to know specifically where that breakdown is other than just saying, well, gosh, shucks, you know, any administration that was going to withdraw from this, it was going to be bad. Just happened to be me. I just sort of got the bad barrel and the Russian roulette, sorry, I got the bad chamber there. That's not an appropriate example. Or , or post-mortem here. We got to figure out what happened. Is that going to happen? Are we going to see military generals or anybody in this debacle resigned or held accountable for it? No, of course not because why we never do anyways. All right. We got one more clip here from Joe Biden and Joe Biden is here now , uh , making a great point, making a very keen observation, something that I've observed , uh , with the Afghan leaders and some of the people there apparently who were out of the 300,000 people that Joe Biden was communicating to us. We're going to be there protecting the country. Here is Joe Biden out and laying it laying, laying some truth down about the Afghans.

Speaker 4:

So what's happened. Afghanistan, political leaders gave up and fled the country. The Afghan military collapsed sometime without trying to fight if anything, the developments of the past week reinforced that ending us . Military involvement. Afghanistan now was the right decision. American troops cannot and should not be fighting in the war and dying in a war that Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.

Speaker 1:

It's hard to argue with that folks. You know, it's hard to argue with that. When I was, we were talking about this last week, we were covering it. We were reading different stories of the Taliban, almost being greeted as liberator's, right, because they could use their motorcycles again. They could use their little mopeds or , or motor motor bikes because under the old government, they were not allowed to do that because those were vehicles that the Taliban used. Taliban comes in a lot more freedom, a lot more Liberty. They're not locked down anymore. And so they were almost greeted as liberator's, we've got some clips here. I'm going to show you about, you know, they're, they're kind of having a good time they're in, in , uh , in Taliban, Afghanistan. So , uh , that was the last clip from Joe Biden saying , uh , Afghan leaders gave up, they did, the president was gone. I think they still don't know where he is. And so if your inner core, if the core of your country, the people who are supposed to be symbolically representing you, who are supposed to be the strongest stakes in the ground, to make sure that the country does not get derailed, they just bailed abandoned ship , right? It'd be like your founding, the founding fathers in this country. You'd have Madison, Jefferson, Washington, all of them. Oh, the British just landed Washington and Jefferson, they all just go , well, it's been a good run, everybody, but we're off to Canada so long. See how long the rest of the country is able to hold it together. And so, you know , that begs the next question, Joe Biden and all of the other presidents, all of these other military people, all of the bureaucrats that installed these leaders, these, these officials over there in the Afghani government and , and spent the last 20 years telling us how great they are. Oh, these are really good people. We trust them. You know, they're, they're primed to be able to bring their country, turn things around and create a new democracy in the middle east. They are our partners over there. What kind of character judgment do these bureaucrats have? Or did they know something that we don't know? Are they being honest with us? Or is this all just a rotten scheme? And they're just out there paying lip service, talking up their useful ally in whatever grip they're being a part of, because now it's sure it looks like that. All of their judgments about these presidents and about these elected officials are all a little bit off, right? Don't recommend me , uh , Joe, or , or Nancy Pelosi or any us officials currently who've been elected in the last 20 years. Don't recommend to us the American people, the next leader of a free country. Cause you have a terrible recommendations. They're terrible. Your restaurants are bad. All of your movie recommendations are terrible. Your dictator representations are , are also all just awful. I there's supposed to be a very strong leaders there in Afghanistan and they just got on the first plane out of there. So , uh, no thanks. We don't need any more of those. Now, Joe Biden was , uh , very, very quick to get out of the white house. Now he gave his 18 minutes speech. And again, we're sort of measuring the leadership response as a leader of a country as the leader of America, the country that led the coalition against terrorism back after 2001 that put boots on the ground all over the middle east for the last 20 years, that has a number of different allies in different parts of the world that we've been working with that still rely on the United States. You would imagine that at a moment like this, your president, the leader of the free world would come out, spend a little bit more than 18 minutes. Talking about these issues, acknowledge a little bit more about what actually took place, why this was so problematic and then give a clear opportunity to clarify some of the outstanding questions, right? The press has a lot of questions we haven't heard from Joe Biden or this administration in the last three days. Now he's out there finishes his 18 minute speech and presumably he's available for questions, right? He's going to stand there and take some questions from the press. But Joe Biden doesn't do that. No , here he is on his way out. He makes he hightails it for the door. As soon as the speech is over here, it is, oh ,

Speaker 2:

Brave Americans serving in harm's way.

Speaker 1:

Gone, gone with the wind, just turns around, walks right out the door, press a screaming like a bunch of hyenas. Hey Joe, you kind of botched this whole thing. Your foreign policy is crumbling. And literally in real time , the American people have lost faith in the competence that your administration claimed to have. So maybe a couple of questions, no slams the book, teleprompters over nothing else to read anymore. Certainly can't wrap his head around what's going on. So he just makes a beeline right for the door. And he's out of there by, by Joe, faster than they left. Qubole he's gone. So now we know he's going back to the camp, David , uh , vacation here. He is. Uh , this is from the press briefing room, whatever, you know , wherever this document comes from the president delivered remarks by 1:00 PM. The president of the Washington, DC going back to camp David and a lot of people on Twitter. Also noticing that Jen Sakhi is out as well. She's on vacation until August 22nd, very convenient. People were sending her emails and they were getting the auto responder . Oh no, we're on vacation. Sorry, Jen . Saki is not available. Uh , meanwhile, the U S military is doing what it can to save lives and bring them out of the country. Here is what Ian Bremmer posted over on Twitter says, this is inside a U S transport that's taking off from Qubole calling it extraordinary, right? This is what it looks like. And so for all of the people out there who just want to say, well, whatever, screw Afghanistan, we've been there for 20 years, whatever. Forget about it. Uh , let's take a look, right? I mean, there are in this, in this photograph, there are women and children, right? There's a young man right here. Uh, another young, young, young person here, a child over here , uh , this child over here is drinking from a bottle, kids , kids, women, kids just packed into this thing. It's , it's a horrendous scene. It's a humanitarian crisis. This is on a us convoy. This is something that the us should have been prepared for. They're telling us that they were prepared. Oh, we had all the contingencies planned . We had it all figured out. Uh , certainly it doesn't look like it, right? They're going to be just sloshing around in an aircraft , uh , as they fly around to whatever their next destination is. And so then, you know , the next of course question is, well, where do these people go? Or do we just bring them into the United States now? And now the United States is, is responsible for, for, for all of them. In addition to that, and you might say, well, Nope, send the plane back, turn that around. But at the same time, the U S caused all of this, right? The U S created an environment where these people were relying on us security, the U S just bailed . And so now what do we do? It's a tough situation. That's why I'm looking forward to hearing your answers and your CA your questions on this, because it's a complicated issue. All right. So moving on, what is the rest of the world have to say about this? We're going to get into questions soon. I promise , uh , the times of India is reporting that the Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan says that the Afghans have broken. The shackles of slavery does that . They seize power and , uh , president Ghani fled the war torn country. So the prime minister said that, yeah, I mean, they were in slavery now. They broken those chains. So the Pakistan government sounds like it is now aligning with the Taliban. The Chinese are having fun with this. The Chinese are saying, from what happened in Afghanistan, those in Taiwan should perceive that once a war breaks out in the streets, the Island's defense will come in hours . And the U S military won't come to help. As a result, the DPP will quickly surrender. So they are just poking fun. They are needling the United States saying that , uh , Hey, Taiwan, you know your allies over there, the U S the people that said that they were going to protect you against the reunification between China and Taiwan, the same reunification that president Z has talked about saying that we're going to reunify in the next 10 years, we are coming for you. Taiwan. They've made that pretty clear. And so now the U S because of their inability to see things through looks like an unreliable ally, Taiwan, maybe unlike Afghanistan is a very key strategic interest to the United States, largely for their technological capacity, for the chips that they make there. So , uh, China knows that, and China is very quick to make sure that they wag their fingers in the entire face of the United States, any opportunity they get. Do you remember when Anthony Blinken went over there and said, Hey, what are you doing about the Wiggers ? They said, well, what are you doing about the BLM? Or is there? And Anthony's like, oh yeah, you're right. I guess we're idiots. And then also, now they're saying Taiwan, the U S they don't have your back anymore. Look what they just did to Afghanistan. So that's not too good. All right. Well, let's take a look [email protected] and see what is going on over here. All right. We're going to pull up the questions. I think I saw a super chat come in there from Paul Bryan . Thanks. Paul saw that. No question on there, but I appreciate the support. All right. Let's see what is here from watching the watchers.locals.com. We've got, I'm not gas as don't worry. The UN wants to import at least 1 million Afghan refugees. I'm sure the cowards, you couldn't even stand up to defend their homes for more than one day will be great additions to our country. Yeah, it's a great point, right? If they, if they have civic values and virtues that are entirely different than the country, it makes it difficult to assimilate. Are we learning our lessons on that? If people don't want democracy, if America can't go over there and install democracy, is that a good idea then to bring up, to bring people who don't want to participate in democracy who don't understand enlightenment ideals, like the bill of rights and things like that into the country to try to acclimate them. It seems like you're trying to do the same thing in reverse. We have dead mouse. Five says everyone knew this ending was inevitable, but Jesus f-ing. Yeah. Out of all the possible transitions out of Afghanistan, this has to be one of the worst. Was this also Biden could try and time a photo op for the 20th anniversary of September 11th. Yeah. Linked to switch, getting unplugged in the matrix. Yeah. Let's see if we can grab this one real quick. What is this here? Not like

Speaker 5:

This, not like this and

Speaker 1:

Oh, it didn't have it, but she drops dead right there. Yeah, not good . A good welcome dead man . Five. I know you just signed up. Welcome to the community. Great. Great question. Sharon Courtney says Afghan was a nightmare for the Russians before it became the U S is nightmare for all those who hate the U S including those in this regime. That's most of them, it's a great triumph a day for rejoicing. I hope that's not true. Sharon seems like it's pretty , uh , pretty terrible. All around. We've got Donald Trump is here, says the DOMA agreement was a wonderful deal for the peace in Afghanistan. It was an orderly withdrawal of the troops, but demented Jo is even bigger than mine. His ego. He needed to withdraw by May 1st and then delayed it

Speaker 5:

To nine 11. The order of withdrawal,

Speaker 1:

The shred, the documents, the order to evacuate equipment evacuate,

Speaker 5:

Everything was problematic.

Speaker 1:

Sleepy. Joe should retire. Yeah . Donald Trump said so. Yeah. Donald Trump said that. I think officially, even Sergeant Bob is here, says Biden spent 40 some years in politics and never was a leader now with his mental capacity, it's only worse, very predictable as the Brits would say, this is a right. Good. Cock-up all right . Maybe he could just assign this to Kamala. Well, yeah. I mean, look , uh , Joe Joe is, is, is, well, first of all, Camila is very, very good at not succeeding. So, so , uh , she'd be great for this because it's already not a success. And so put her in charge of this and she'll continue to make sure that it is not a success. She's got a very good track record with the border . He put her in charge to go solve that thing. Uh , not going to happen. Obviously it's actually getting dramatically worse. And so , uh, yeah, I think Afghan is already basically beyond repair. So yeah, we could put Kamala in charge of that because it won't get any better, but we also have LT 13 says, did you see the pick of buying a camp, David? Yeah. Dock some people he was wrong for what time would be in Moscow. The only times that would have matched up or in March. Yeah. So let me explain this LT . 13 is saying, there's this image, Joe Biden was a wild image. The white house posted this. I didn't clip it, but the white house posted this over on , uh, on their Twitter official Twitter account, Joe Biden is over there at camp David and they have a screen up in front of him. And they've got all of these different people on there. Camila Harris is on there, she's in the Naval observatory and there are no , uh , there are no books behind her. So people are saying, well that's,

Speaker 5:

Is that a real set?

Speaker 1:

You know, she's been in that Naval observatory there for a couple of months. Now, you'd imagine she'd put some books back there. What's going on with that? Is this a fake image? And Joe Biden is sitting there. He's got a note pad open and there's nothing written on it. So he's got this pen and he's just like going to write in this like blank notepad talking to some people on the screen. Uh , even though the microphone on notifications are not on what LT 13 is talking. So meaning maybe he can't speak to them. And so what LT 13 is talking about is the, the , uh, clocks up there on the image are not necessarily right. So Moscow, the difference between Moscow and London nest , it should have been like a three hour difference or whatever it is. And it's only a two hour difference because that was pre daylight savings time. And now it's, you know, whatever. And so somebody did the math and the clocks don't match up. And so now people are saying,

Speaker 5:

It's not even a real picture. It's probably

Speaker 1:

You folks just that the clocks are wrong because our government is that incompetent. Yeah . Why would the clocks be right? Nothing else is right. So there's nobody to change the clocks. So that's probably all it is, but I love those conspiracy theories. Love it. It's a lot of fun. And Joe Biden is

Speaker 5:

Basically absent. So

Speaker 1:

I think it fits and he's writing it in a blank notebook.

Speaker 5:

What is he going to be writing there? Oh, okay. I have to check on this

Speaker 1:

For that general. What are you talking about? Okay. Anyways , uh,

Speaker 5:

Ken Kenneth hit it on ,

Speaker 1:

Uh, on local, says, cannot imagine anything more incoherent or incompetent. Then the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle. How many hours before the media starts to ignore Americans caught behind enemy lines. Who will no doubt be tortured murdered are both in favor of blaming the only policy of Trump's Biden. Didn't reverse immediately. I know it's a good question. I think that you're probably gonna see a lot of,

Speaker 5:

Of a sweeping away of the up here.

Speaker 1:

I was just going to move on with this. That was the signal from the speech today. Joe Biden came out. Now I'm doubling down. Don't ask me about it again. Don't talk about it again. Move on. That was a signal, not taking questions. This is, this is a hard line in the sand get

Speaker 5:

In line and they probably will.

Speaker 1:

The Taliban is here, says thanks, Joe, for the heavy equipment planes and giving Afghanistan on a silver platter, the Taliban's here. Uh ,

Speaker 5:

Hopefully they're , they're , uh , support in the show.

Speaker 1:

Sharon Quinny says anything coming out of the mouth of this regime. You can count on as being as lie , start to finish. It's all about Kabuki. Now the Taliban is back. ISIS will be back in my guess is they're going to be talking about domestic right-wing extremists and white supremacists. Yeah. They're actually called now. I think racial and ethnic violent extremists. Sharon, we're going to talk about that in the third segment today, we've got choppers in the house as there's been some talk that the Taliban may deals with political and military leaders in Afghanistan, and that they were either bribed or convinced to desert . There were either massive intelligence failures on the part of the U S which would be bad, or they knew about it. Did nothing, which would be worse. Yeah.

Speaker 5:

I'm hopeful that there's a lot more digging that goes

Speaker 1:

On as a result of this, but I'm not optimistic about that because you need the media to do the digging. You need politicians to do the digging and the Republicans are also asleep at the wheel, right? They don't care level love CA is here, says I'd like to formally congratulate the militias in Afghanistan for winning a war against the country with F sixteens and nuclear weapons using only AK 40 sevens. And I E DS . Yeah. It's, it's actually pretty amazing. And we spent billions of dollars lost thousands of lives, and it's just kind of back to the way it was 21 years ago. Isn't it. And why renal MD says the only difference between Qubole and Saigon is that we haven't heard from Henry Kissinger yet. He is still alive. So we may hear from him to whitewash this foreign policy debacle. Yeah. Kissinger's still, he's still alive. Wants to know, says Rob , do you think it would be a good idea to send Camila AOC, Almar and others over to Afghanistan to make sure that the BLM and the rainbow flags are going to fly over to the new Afghan capital ? Yeah, probably , uh , probably also to make sure that they've got their , a dossier of pronouns in place says it would help to prove it's new Taliban stay till the mission has completed help to prove there's not prejudice. There . Stay at the U S embassy till the mission is completed and hand out little pink hats with Madonna. That's great. Want to know exactly right? Yeah. The pronouns, you know, look if governor Kardashians, what's the , uh, what's her name? Jenner . If governor Jenner can't , uh , can't win in California. Maybe she can win with the Taliban over there. Yeah. And that might be good. We have a tint tight tinfoil hat says, look at the squirrel while we segregate the, by the, by , uh, by POC. Anti-vaxxers from their food causing food. Is that causing food riots in NYC in San Francisco? Oh no. Shootings. Joe declares gun, a public health emergency. Joe ignores the second amendment rights. All guns must be accounted for and turned into public health authorities, tyranny in the back door. That was from tight tinfoil hat. A lot more questions here. Sharon says, you say, it looks like this government is incompetent. If it looks like a duck, et cetera, how much more proof would anybody need? That's a good point. There. Three girlies is here says as a Navy brat ex air force wife at this Afghanistan, withdrawal is an unbelievable failure of the political class has completely ripped apart. My friends and family. Wow . I've had a very emotional weekend. Saigon on steroids does not cover this hell. I do not believe we should be there, but this was done wrong. What is worse? The Afghan people did not deserve this, right? Seeing them cloth for any chance for freedom and saving has just added to it. All Biden did not have a plan at all. He needs to be removed and a whole lot of top leaders in our government need to be fired out of this the long impeachment list for by , yeah. I agree with you on that three girls . I think that, you know , if we had a real country that really had, you know, honor and integrity and people were held accountable, you would see resignations already, right? You see these generals who we hear about being the most honorable sacrificial people in the planet that, you know, they , they just are nothing but a selfless botching, this and , and feeding, shoveling BS down. All of our throats for the last two decades, you'd think that they would have a little bit of shame, but they don't. They all just sort of, you know , deflect the blame, Joe Biden comes out. It is what it is. Media is going to say, well, it is what it is. And a lot of people have lost limbs lives , uh , brothers and sisters. And it is a horrific thing to think about that. You know, all of this was sort of done without, without much purpose, without much oversight. It was way worse than we expected. And there are a lot of people that got rich off this. And there were a lot of families that lost loved ones. And if we had a justice system, you would say, well, maybe we should go find that money. Maybe we should go get every single dollar of that back that was stolen from this country and pay it to the families who lost loved ones as a result of this government. Catastrophe, is that ever going to happen? I hope so. We all have next up, we have here , uh , leafy bugs says when I was young and stupid, I thought the regime change wars were effective. The only way to prevent another nine 11. Yeah . I bought into that too . Leafy bug. I was younger when I was nine 11 happened when I was 16, I think. And so I agreed to make the world a better place. Then people jumped to their deaths from the tower to escape. Inferno caused by religious fanatics, flying planes into buildings today, people are jumping to their deaths from us planes to get the hell out of Dodge, to escape religious fanatics is the world a better place? I'm not so sure. Leafy bug. I don't think so. I think the world is going the wrong direction for the time being we have aircraft. Max says, rumor has it that the footage of the C 17 being taken over it was actually a Trump rally. They're coming to thank Trump. I guess we have over here. No question says it looks like a good time to drop a couple of radio active freedom seats . That's not appropriate. There was no name on that. I suspect. I know why ref Fana later said is here, says this is pretty bad, but the administration concern at all about the women and children in Afghanistan. First stream live since joining locals. That's from ref Irfan the later riff and later tell me if I'm getting your name right or wrong and I'll do my best to correct that and welcome to the community. I just saw you signed up. Your name is on the, on the board there. Thank you for that. And grateful that you're here. Joe Biden said that they're concerned about women and children, but I don't know because the actions don't match the rhetoric. Do they? Kenny, one B says as someone who does some contingency planning for certain parts of the government, there really isn't all that much planning capabilities are generally way overblown. Hunter is here, says dad's screwed up. He's not as incompetent as me, but it's okay. He'll fix it by the way. Robert, do you know where my laptop is? I think that that prostitute that we S we talked about last week, I think she has a red pilled. Convict says, ladies, get one of those at the CNS

Speaker 6:

Merge store.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. Get the CNN head jobs. Now the CNN Taliban had job. Oh my goodness. Uh, let's see here. Uh , thunder seven says I missed the orange Cheeto . The Taliban were afraid of him and pawn pale orange Cheeto told them that they, if they break the Doha withdrawal protocols, he's going to send vengeance Biden, change the date, us snuck out, left military hardware behind Taliban. They got new Humvees trucks, shiny new drones. You had another colossal failure by China, Joe . Uh , there's a good comment there. Thunder. We have Coucher says, what is it going to take to have someone resign? And for God's sake, who is running the country? I don't know who his three girlies is here says that Clarissa ward changed her address because she was interviewing the Taliban leadership. She went to Bagram, airbase, saw them taking over all the ammunition. They were happy to answer questions. So it would get out to the world. She changed. So they wouldn't kill her. Yeah. I understand that three girlies . And I, and I, I maybe shouldn't have poked fun about that. Right? She's doing what she needs to do. She is there with CNN. I think she's brave as hell for being there. Right? She's on like death's doorstep with wrong one wrong move. I would, I would suspect, but maybe she also has a little bit of armor there because she is a journalist. She is with CNN and the Taliban knows that they can use her for their propaganda. Right? They want to show this victory, this seizure of Qubole . And they're going to make sure that that is being broadcast everywhere. And of course the media is happy to oblige with that. Why shouldn't they? They're the new, they're the new government there . It's a new, that's the new that's who's in charge. So the media has to report on them. We have over here from, I'm not gas as Biden's first real crisis. Not being, not being hand . No, not being handled very well. I agree with the decision to pull out, but looking at this it's crazy. They had absolutely no plan. Did they expect the Taliban to just sit nicely and wait for everyone to leave? I don't know. I'm not sure really what they were expecting. Speeches here says funny how Russia, China, even the middle east don't dare do anything. When Trump was president, because they knew Trump would act just the threat of Trump was enough. However, the whole world knows Biden is weak. Won't do anything. So that's why they're all acting up now. It's I think there's a lot of truth to that. That was from speech. We have the Taliban also here says demented, Joe , you're so incompetent. Now we're going to have sex, sex slaves. And we're going to employ execute people and implement Sharia law. Josh Calgary is here, says the Afghan people had 20 years to decide if they really wanted to reject the Taliban. That's an entire generation of people. When the Taliban came, they dropped their rifles immediately. No more American boys need to die. Their drones and cruise missiles can do the work from here on out. Yeah. I agree with that, John. I agree. Right. Look, if the people themselves are not willing to stand up and defend themselves or take this opportunity, I agree. I think that enough already. And that's where we're at. We have B Thorne says the incompetence of sloppy Joes administration is on full display. He's address was pitiful. It's just sad having an absent leader, but I'm wondering, besides the newly discovered DHS threat, what is this misdirecting our attention from? I just finally joined up on locals. I try to watch the show every day , keep up the good work that is from be thorn . Welcome. Be thorn thankful that you are here. Uh , you know, it's a

Speaker 5:

Good question. And I was asking

Speaker 1:

Myself the same thing. My first instinct is, well, if we don't have the military

Speaker 5:

Hairy industrial complex over there in the middle. Yeah .

Speaker 1:

Do you think that those contractors are just going to go away and that this whole, you know, this whole institution just disappears? No, of course not. It just comes right back over here. It just comes back on home. They've already been transitioning this anyways. Joe Biden said, you know, one of the biggest threats, I

Speaker 5:

Think it's being debated

Speaker 1:

Alongside climate change, but we also have white supremacy, domestic, violent extremism . We have homegrown extremists and the list goes on and on. We're going to talk about all of that. But if the country is buckling down here at home, if people are trying to flee the country or move states

Speaker 5:

And we have a lot more resources to move from the

Speaker 1:

International terrorist to the new domestic terrorist , well, you can just see where this is going. And I don't doubt that for a second. Unfortunately, Mustafa's here says thank you America. For my brand new Humvee, my cousin got my cousin. We stopped, oh, we've got the Taliban. The Taliban is infiltrating the show. Donald Trump says, Joe Biden. Don't blame the train wreck on me. You broke the government yourself. Next we have Sharon says, oh, please, I can hear the cheering and yelling and Yemen of the mic cheering at blaming Trump for anything and everything. That's from Sharon. The Darvas here says the photos of the Taliban in the offices look eerily similar to some of the photos that journalists just happened to take there , uh , during the take to the capital chaos, how did the Taliban get into Nancy's office? Not so much difference in the levels of security with this and that day. Many similarities. Hmm . Yeah, it is. It is kind of similar. It's like,

Speaker 5:

It's like they were able

Speaker 1:

The takeover , the, the entire city in a couple of days, they were able to take over the Capitol building here in a couple of hours. And so, yeah, maybe the security states, maybe Afghanistan was a little bit more secure than the Capitol building on that day. What a joke , uh, John Halperin says when someone says the truth is the next thing they say is very likely not the truth. But I say that we have ghost gunner says, Rob, why would the military care about this withdrawal ? Last I checked this isn't purging Republicans from the armed services or brainwashing people with critical race theory and LGBT propaganda. Yeah, that's true. I think

Speaker 5:

That, yeah.

Speaker 1:

You know, I , I, I think didn't general Miley. One of them said something about wanting to understand

Speaker 5:

White rage, something like that. I think, I think

Speaker 1:

A lot of the countries is pretty enraged over how this happened. Don't know if it's only white people who are upset about how the country handled this, but maybe they are seeing more of it. Maybe that's what they're going to refocus their efforts on anybody. Who's mad about how badly the military

Speaker 5:

Afghanistan might be exhibiting. Some white rage might be a libertarian, might be anti government might need to be monitored and surveilled by the department of Homeland security.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. Yeah. I mean, yeah, it's a good, it's a good point there. That's for ghost gunner. Next up. We've got Lauren SS. Hey Rob, I have to give it to Biden on this one. Americans shouldn't be fighting and dying in a war for another country that won't fight for itself. That's from Lauren S uh , there's. I , I don't disagree with that candidly. Right? I think that Biden is right on that. Mark. We have Kenny one B says Biden ignored his intelligence briefings on the Taliban decision is based on ideology and ignores reality. I'm still waiting for some confirmation on that. We have the last villain that says me and my ex soldier contractor sat in my sister's living room two months ago and divine to the scenario. Why couldn't the top brass? People are trying to give him a pass for this epic fumble we needed to leave. But that scene at the airport was area's health full apocalypse. Do you think that you should have put Kamala out in front of this , uh, in front of what? The airplane? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, she could have settled that down. She went down to Guatemala and wagged her finger and all the Guatemalans faces and said, don't come. So she should have just been out there in Afghanistan and said, Hey, Taliban, don't you come into our airport? Cause I think that's her only solution. I don't know what else she can do. She hasn't done anything else except talk and poorly at that next up we've got John Calgrin says the Taliban obviously bought millions of doses of vaccine. COVID disappeared in Afghanistan without the CDC intervention. Yeah. That's the other question is why didn't the CDC just pro the CDC should have just extended the eviction moratorium over the embassy and sent the Taliban a memo that the Supreme court said that , uh , or the , the office of legal counsel so that that's no problem. And the Supreme court hasn't ruled on it yet. So yeah, they can just see, sorry, Taliban, Rachel. Moleski over from the CDC said you can't kick us out because of COVID and by the way, put your masks on because this is offensive. We have over here, tos forever says after seeing the woman and children in the airplanes, it makes more sense. We take women and children out first. Those were fathers running beside the plane, knowing their family is safe. So might be buying is short because they're bringing people in who support the constitution. Like you have a lot of faith dos forever. I like your optimism on that. And I got some doubts about it, but we'll see yam says taco bell. Okay. I can't read that. Okay. We have leafy bugs says the U S military is the most effective fighting force in the world at tactical and operational levels. Almost always betrayed at the strategic level. It effortlessly wins. The wars. It is tasked to fight gets slowly loses the periods of peace in his task to enforce. Once more, we see the folly of these prolonged engagement. It is bad enough that the military is repeatedly dishonored by the people in DC, responsible for these disasters and buckles. Many of whom still make bank from their making for every soldier that returns from these misadventures in a casket, several more come home and take their own lives. As a result of what they went through. The loss of these lives are a price . The people who sent them into harm's way are willing to pay. Yeah, they are. Yeah. Cause it , they have no skin in the game. There are no consequences for them. It's not their son. It's not their money. And everybody else has to foot the bill for their incompetence. It's offensive bile . Loha says the 20 Bo says the 25th amendment was trending at number 13. Today. I have to say this though. I believe this is elder abuse with Dr. Jill at the forefront. I don't like to defend him, but Joe has been abused since the announcement that he was running for president. Yeah, he is not there. Right. It's I think he's been gone for a long time. And I don't like to say that, right. It just sort of feels mean to say that, but you can see it in his eyes. Even today, when he was speaking, he loses the teleprompter sometimes and you can see it in his eye movements. You can see when he sort of loses it and then he gets it again. And then he's , you can see his eyes, the little micro expressions. He's, he's a couple brain cells away from not being able to do that. In my opinion, I'm not a medical doctor now sweet potato says, even though the Biden ad man is ruining America, you have to take a step back and appreciate the blessings of living here. I can't imagine the fear of the women being treated as lesser and the real fear of being trafficked in this situation. Prayers for them, all those images and video of the tarmac are heartbreaking. Yeah. I completely agree with that. Sweet potato. It is a sad thing, right? We have to sort of remem remember this, even though it is a catastrophe, even though America can not be the basket for the entire world, that to serve the entire world, it is a sad it's , it's a humanitarian catastrophe. It's a sad thing. I feel for the people over there. I feel for the people who have sacrificed to , to go and make that a better place. It's a, it's a, it's a bad day. It's not good. We have Donald Trump says the Afghanistan withdraw . Highlighted how big human stupidity is. That is , uh , talking about Joe Biden. Ah , okay. Over here we have Scott Morris, screw Scott Morrison and says here in Australia, Scott Morrison said that he, okay, so he's going to enforce lockdowns . We have another question here from Josh. SESCO says with less assets tied up in Afghanistan, we'll be better equipped to support Taiwan. That's another good point. Little GOP politics there. Angie woe is here. Let's see. I think that's on the next segment. So we're going to get to that here. Next tinfoil hat fell off. Look over here. Um , okay. We've got a couple more questions and we're gonna move on to the next segment. Cause we spent a lot of time on this one here today. Aircraft Mac . Last question here. Before we take a look at the super chats says once the tele brand is brought here, a few Southern visitors won't bother anymore. Oh, that's a horrendous thought. Uh , wants to know, says Rob, you need to be nicer to Kamala. She's the next president? True poll numbers are down because she's a woman. I know. I'm sorry. I'm a chauvinist. I know Trump wants her as the president, after Biden resigns. All right . Let's take a look at some super chats over from just Kyle says, Rob, did you see Biden's Afghan crisis fix eats and chocolate chocolate chip. Sorry. I'm behind on the segments. That's from just cause yeah, I mean he's back at camp David. He's probably got a whole gallon of ice cream , uh , over there at camp. David, thank you for the super chat. Just we have a D D G McBride says no to CNN. This is what an insurrection looks like. Okay. This is when you take over a country and you see control of the government and now you run things. It's not when somebody takes a podium and uh , walks it into the foyer of the Capitol building. And then the government resumed their operations about three hours later, little bit different. And DG McBride is helping to illustrate that for us. A super iron Bob is here. It says the admin attempted to move the change over outside the fighting season and deploy the other side would rightfully distrust. Yeah. Okay. So yeah, super iron Bob giving us a little bit of the , uh, military inside baseball going on. And so , uh , great questions. Love all of those coming over from watching the watchers.locals.com where people are chatting away. We got pinkies here. Now we've got, I'm not gas. We've got Bama , licking , all having conversations over there, along with John Dillard over at locals, over on YouTube, big thank yous to super iron Bob, Doug McBride. Uh , we had just caused and others who supported us with a super chats today. Really do appreciate all of that as well. All right . So enough with Afghanistan, we're going to change gears. Now we got to talk about what's going on in New York city before we get there. Well, we're going to get there. Yeah. All right . So next segment, the key to NYC mayor de Blasio's new brilliant idea for vaccine mandates. If you get the vaccine and you comply with the new program, you get to participate in New York city. You get to participate in all the fun things that you're used to as an American, like going places, doing things, meeting people, eating food, enjoying music, and the list goes on and on, but only if you're vaccinated. So we've got these like little, two tiers of systems that we have now in this country. So we have one for the people who are in the in-group and the other is you're not participatory anymore. You don't get to join in on the New York city fund. Thanks for playing. Go get your shot, like a good little peasant. And then come on back. Once you followed orders then, and only then are we going to let you participate in our city? And so we've talked about this for a long time. We've spent some time going through the domino analogy that New York city has regularly been the first domino to fall. And then all of the other cities and all of the other states follow shortly thereafter, we saw this back during the season, one of COVID pandemic when New York got the big wave, they started murdering all of their senior citizens. And then they started to try to sort of export their philosophy on how to govern your state to all of the other cities. Same thing's happening here. New York city started they're key to NYC the VAX pass that went over to LA. Now it's landing in San Francisco and the list goes on and on like a disgusting virus, it's going to continue to permeate throughout the rest of the country. And it's still subject to some questions. We're going to take a look at what exactly is going on here because mayor de Blasio came out and gave us this today. Frequently asked, says that we are going to be going through and giving you some guidance. Now that the key to NYC launches tomorrow, August 17th, with outreach and education. So the mayor de Blasio comes out and says, we're going to roll out this new program. All of you people, there are private business owners with private employees and all of this stuff , uh , new programs coming out and you might say, okay, well I want to continue to maintain my business. How do I run my business now with these new rules? And the Blasio says, well, don't worry about that. We're going to get the memo to you so that you can comply. You're a good business owner. You want to follow the law, follow the rules. So the Blasio comes out and says, here's a new list of orders for you. And this was published on August 16th and it goes into effect August 17th . Okay. And so kind of a , not much time to comply or to make any of those adjustments, but that's okay because actual enforcement doesn't start until less than a month later on September 13th . So

Speaker 5:

We're going to go through this. These are the frequently asked

Speaker 1:

Questions on when COVID is required and how this whole thing works. It's a little long, but we're going to fly through this. And I want to show you a little bit behind the scenes about what he's talking about. So COVID vaccination mandates. What types of proof is sufficient? We're going to start kind of at the end of this document, the Blasio comes out and says that sufficient proof can be in one of the following forums , the NYC COVID app, the New York state Excelsior app, any official vaccine record or a photo copy of any one of these following vaccines, you can see the list down here, right? All of them, many of them you're familiar with the types of proof, anything that comes from the FDA or the world health organization. So those are all going to be acceptable. We're going to take a quick look at these apps because the Blasio is very excited about this. They're , you know , got a lot of new technology there in New York. And so they give us this one, the NYC COVID safe app. Eh , it doesn't look so good. Right? We've got 3.2 review 3.2 rating here after 67 ratings . So three just , just , just under three and a half stars. And it's kind of a garbage app. Everybody says, it looks like this. You upload a copy of your vaccine. You take your photo, upload all of this stuff. It's basically like a copy and paste app, but this is what it looks like. Not much in way of design users. Not particularly happy about it, either. They say that's a glorified camera app. It doesn't validate the record at all. It says, surely you are joking. This is the scene of the first season of Silicon valley or somebody blah-blah-blah over here says, while I applaud the internet, the execution here is pretty bad. Great that it exists. But it seems like it's of limited value. Why? In seven days when you're fully vaccinated, you have to . Okay. So right . Some people are unhappy about it. Some people say, well, it's pretty good. It's a good start. Let's stay safe. One more step towards a safer community, you know , uh , easy way to carry your proof day function. Okay. So, you know, some people are very excited about this. They get to put their little vaccine documents, right ?

Speaker 5:

They're falling. Oh yeah. I I'm vaccinated look, Hey. Yeah. Waitress. Yes. Look how vaccinated I am. Great.

Speaker 1:

So that app is, and apparently every single person in New York city is going to have to get this. Otherwise you're excommunicated from society. You don't get to participate in the economy. If you're non-vaccine folks it's not allowed anymore. Mayor de Blasio said that specifically, unless you get this crappy crappy app, that doesn't work. But if you don't like that app, that's okay. There's another one. That's even worse. It's this one it's called the NYS Excelsior pass wallets . And this one is at 2.8 rating 1,300 ratings. Uh , so a lot more. And it's a lot worse. The other one was 3.2 a , this one now is 2.8. So it's not even good, but you can see it's number four in health and fitness because people who live in New York are all freaking out. They got to go buy this thing. And it's another terrible app, same thing, right? Upload your vaccine passports in here. Stay nice and organized with all your vaccination records. And it's got nice little QR code . So you can show your waitress and you can all, you know, exchange your medical information just on the fly. I'd like a coffee. Oh, I know you would. But first and foremost, I got to see your papers. Ma'am I can't give you this coffee unless I know you're vaccinated. And , and , and ma'am there says, oh gosh, I've been so petrified about COVID anyway. So happy to do it. Pulls out the little, here you go. Oh my gosh, we're two vaccinated people. This is such a beautiful moment. Thank you for making the community safer. And that's what's going on in New York city. Kind of a weird thing we have over here. Uh, we have , uh, more, more , uh , disappointment . Just , just shame out of this app. It says , uh , so very, very bad. I'm usually called less, less as unhappy. It says my first name is misspelled. Leslie. We also have needs a lot of work to be useful. A useless down here. If I could give it no stars, I would no records found no help. Didn't work. No way to troubleshoot, right? Excelsior pass , not working gives false info and the list goes on and on and on. So this thing goes into effect tomorrow and nobody can, can actually use it. So you have to make sure you're backed up. If you're a doctor in New York city, I'm sorry, doctor just a dish was reading Dr. EMB doctor, the doctors in the house, Dr . EMB . I was reading that. Good to see you. Doc said that. Thank you for that very generous support and super chat. Really appreciate that. But you don't get access to the economy.

Speaker 5:

Use one of new York's loser

Speaker 1:

Apps and you still don't get access to it . It doesn't work. You can't get access to anything. It doesn't pull up your record . You want to go buy the coffee I'm vaccinated, but I can't prove it to you. So you gotta bring your card around. If you're in New York city, be extra cognizant of that. Now, how does this work? We're going to go through these rules and actually apply some of these things to some, some specific pictures of restaurants in New York city. And , uh , we'll see how it works. These are the rules that came through from mayor DeBlasio. What types of entities need to ask for proof of vaccination? Who does everybody does?

Speaker 5:

The staff needs to check. Anybody needs to check staff and visitors

Speaker 1:

At all of these places. What spaces are considered indoors? And we're going to have some fun with this. Now this is very complicated. Uh, you can see that they're trying to give us some guidance. We can take a look. This is an outdoor restaurant, and we're trying to decipher, does this fit the rules? It says that indoor spaces are defined as those having three or more walls. Okay. We have something we can start off with. It has a roof or overhang, okay. And three or more walls. So we're getting some rules that we can tease out of this for our purposes. The following are considered outdoors and do not need vaccination . So now we have to decide, right, in this top part of this paragraph, this is what is considered indoors. These are not considered out. These are not considered indoors . So these are outdoors. Now structures on a sidewalk or roadway that are entirely open and an outdoor dining structure designed for individual parties. So long as it has a dome, like a , like a COVID dome , uh , then that's allowed. So we're going to go through these. These are the rules. We're going to play with them and see how we can apply them to some facts here. But it says what types of indoor entertainments are required to comply. It's basically everything, right? Basically everything. Professional sports, arenas, indoor stadiums, convention centers, museums, galleries, aquariums, commercial events, gardens, movie theaters, concert venues, adult entertainment, casinos, exhibition halls, billiard halls, recreational game centers, all of that stuff. Everybody has to comply. Okay. So now everybody has to comply. It . Let's take a look at the rules. So here we have a picture from a restaurant in New York. I just Googled restaurants in New York and pick the picture, amaranth the restaurant. Now it says indoor spaces are those that have a roof or overhang and three or more walls. Okay. So amaranth, the restaurant has a roof and it has an overhang and it has three or more walls inside the restaurant, but there are no walls outside of this overhang. Hmm . So I don't think that that really applies. And there are no structures on the sidewalk. So I'm not sure what would happen here. Right? This looks kind of dangerous. This might be a pro VAX situation. Meaning if you're sitting here, looks like according to these rules, you got to , you got to have your backs pass because it's a roof or an overhang and three or more walls. You have this and here. So it's not really indoor. It is indoors because there's no structure on the sidewalk. You see how complicated this is folks. We're just analyzing the rules. If it had a structure on a sidewalk, then that might make it outside. But because there's no structure here, I think it's hard to tell right over here, same rules, but we have a different restaurant. Let's do this analysis. Now. We all have the same overhang according to New York city. So the regulators, the , uh , COVID police are going to be out there taking a look at that. Okay. So indoor spaces have a roof or overhang . So that's got that. Got it. And three or more walls. So we know there are walls walls on the inside of the building, but are these walls now? Huh? Okay. So three or more walls now, because those look like mini walls kind of like pony walls. And uh , okay. So this would be considered inside according to these rules, right? This has three walls and then overhang. So boom, it falls into that category.

Speaker 5:

COVID maximum max, you have to comply. It looks pretty simple structures on a sidewalk with an entirely ,

Speaker 1:

The open side facing the sidewalk would be outside. So that, that doesn't, that doesn't apply so fails. Uh , how about over here now? This is a closer example of the COVID bubbles that we can see. Apparently New York is doing these. We've got these like little bubbles , uh , like dividers in between all of these spaces. Let's see if this might be sufficient, an outdoor dining structure designed for individual parties,

Speaker 5:

Plastic domes. So long as the dome has adequate ventilation for air search . Okay. So , um ,

Speaker 1:

I mean, I don't know. I think that's subject to debate , but there are no roofs or overhangs here. So that must mean that, that is in fact, not inside and these are structures kind of outside and it is open facing on the sidewalk. So, Hey, there you go. That might be sufficient for New York. I think this one though is probably the best. Now this one I think is probably the best cause we can analyze it here. It says a roof or overhang,

Speaker 5:

But this isn't,

Speaker 1:

And this is and three or more walls. So this restaurant does have a roof or overhang, but you'll notice it doesn't have the three or more walls. It only has the one wall on the back end and it's missing walls on the side and it doesn't really even have a wall that's supporting the overhang. So I think folks, I think that's kind of the right way to do it right there. Yeah. So , uh, so those are the,

Speaker 5:

The rules now. And so , uh , that's what mayor Dublin

Speaker 1:

Yo is required is requiring of restaurants and other , uh , different facilities out here to figure out how to do their business. I have to go through that analysis. So , uh, you know, that's, that's , uh , one, one mechanism to do it is just to buy those pillars and then you'll be compliant with the COVID vaccine mandates there. So it kind of a lot of enforcement compliance costs that the restaurants are going to have to go through, but the Blasio doesn't care. So it's just, it's figure it out. If you want to do business in New York, figure it out. All right. He says, what types of food establishments are going to be required? All of them, really anything. That's a part of the organization, restaurants, bars, coffee, clubs, anything. That's a part of new York's restaurant grading program, whatever that is. Now, what you'll notice is this starts to get pretty dicey. When we get down here, it says so before we get there, it says a dining establishment and hotels, colleges, universities, cafeterias, all have to comply nightclubs, coffee shops, bars, everything, any business that operates indoor seating at food courts comply, any business that provides on-premise catering services

Speaker 5:

And grocery stores and food markets. Folks, you do not get to go into a grocery store if they offer indoor dining onsite eating okay. If that, if that's

Speaker 1:

Happens, if they have a little place to go have a sandwich or to sit down and have a drink, which I think all of them,

Speaker 5:

Nope , they got a check for your past your vaccine passport.

Speaker 1:

Before you go in there.

Speaker 5:

People, according to this document,

Speaker 1:

We're required to comply with the key to NYC, grocery stores and food markets bodega's and other food retailers. If they offer onsite eating areas. So you might have people going to buy

Speaker 5:

Gallon of milk and they can't get in because they're not

Speaker 1:

Up . If an establishment offers only take out or anything like that, then they have to block off all of the indoor dining to the , you can't even see it. What types of fitness established establishments are required to apply? Basically all of them stand alone , gyms, fitness centers, hotel, gyms, fitness centers, CrossFit, plyometric boxes, all of them, group fitness classes, any two people plus an instructor. So basically anytime that you're going to get out there and do any type of physical activity, boom, it's included got to get Vaxxed up. Also applies to a certain facilities, except

Speaker 5:

Some of these don't have to do it for

Speaker 1:

Pre-K through a grade 12 schools. Cause obviously they don't get Baxt , uh, senior centers where they're eating and things like that. They live there. So they just have to, you know , get vaccinated , uh , different community centers, childcare programs, and those types of things. Now when de Blasio was out there today, unveiling this horrendous plan to everybody in his city. This is what he posted. This is the key to NYC. This is

Speaker 5:

What it unlocks all of this stuff.

Speaker 1:

If you get back , then now all of these things that you use

Speaker 5:

Just to be able to do that were once just by default, your liberties as a born American citizen, like going to the movie, going to the arcade games

Speaker 1:

To a cafeteria, a nightclub, or a bar on events, a restaurant, a gym,

Speaker 5:

Cool. All only available

Speaker 1:

To the higher tier citizens.

Speaker 5:

If you are not faxed well, you don't get access to that.

Speaker 1:

Thanks for playing now. How do they verify this? Who must display proof of the vaccination employees, patrons, interns, volunteers, all of them must display proof of this. Businesses may keep a record of people who have previously provided proof of vaccination rather than require it every time. So now if you have a regular customer, you don't have to check every time you can just sort of write that down and then you're going to be good to go. What about individuals who were under 12? Well, they, it doesn't apply to them, but they can wear a face mask. Are individuals allowed to use a bathroom or a locker room to change clothes without showing proof of vaccination? Yes, you can. As long as they

Speaker 5:

Wear a face mask

Speaker 1:

And socially distance, do I need to check for proof of vaccination for vendors? No. So if you're a business owner and you're just buying stuff and people are coming and going into your business, you don't have to pin all of them down on their vaccination status. They can just come and make your deliveries of your food without checking that. So this is really only for people. It's not really about sort of preventing the transmission of the virus, obviously, because you've got kids who can come and go. You've

Speaker 5:

Got vendors

Speaker 1:

Who can come and go suppliers who can come and go. People who are picking up takeout and food and delivery and all of that stuff. So if it were really about that, right, you would, you would make sure that you're checking those people as well, to make sure that they're vaccinated, but it's not. It's about you get access to the New York economy. If you play ball, if you follow their demands less so than about the virus, it says, what about performers or at indoor events? What about professional athletes? Only the New York city professional athletes have to show the VAX pass. Any other professional athlete or person accompanying. The athlete does not need to provide proof of vaccination. A lot of Hollywood people eat a lot of big wigs there in New York. And so , uh, if they're not from New York city, they are exempted from this, but not you, right? If you're just an everyday citizen, you have to comply. As long as somebody who has exempted, sorry, who's a professional athlete. Who's just coming in exempted. They're good to go. But all of the other citizens, the little people you've got to get vaccinated and prove it a couple more slides here. What if an individual refuses to show vaccination? Any individual who shows, who fails to show proof or refuses to do so may not enter except for a very quick and limited purpose, like using the bathroom, picking up food, paying a bill or changing in the locker room. So now you're going to have a bunch of people duking it out, bickering about this. Well, I can't let you in . You're not vaccinated. Well , I just need to use the restroom. Well , I can't let you in, but you say , but the Blasio said you could, when entering a venue for such limited purposes, they must wear a face mask and maintain six feet. All right . They can , uh , on the vaccine cards, it's got to have all this stuff. First name, date of birth, all of that. Do I need to verify that it's real? No, you don't. What if someone presents a fake card call, you know, call the attorney General's office and the list goes on and on. Is there required signage? Yes. Any establishment covered must post a sign that notifies employees and patrons about the vaccination requirement. So you're a private business owner and this freaking guy comes out and says, you've got to post a sign up there. The sign must be at least eight and a half by 11 inches at least use a 14 point font. So mayor DeBlasio gave you as a business owner. Now a new homework assignment. You got to go and print out your little , uh , you know, printed on a sign and slap it up there in order to do business in his city. It's his city. Now it's not, it's not yours where the citizen city, these are new regulations. And that's how it is. How is this going to be enforced? Well, inspectors from various city agencies will be enforcing these requirements beginning on the 13th of September. All inspectors, no matter which agency they are from will be inspecting for compliance with the same requirements. Are there penalties for noncompliance ? You better believe that a thousand dollar fine repeated violations may result in increased fines or other enforcement action. And if you don't, if you have customers that don't comply well, you can just go take this conflict resolution thing. All right . So , uh, you know, New York city is basically dead. As far as I can tell, I had a very nice stream with a good logic.

Speaker 5:

His channel is good logic

Speaker 1:

And he is , uh , somebody who is very close to New York lives about 11 miles from there. We had a nice conversation last night and he told me what's happening in New York. Everything looks boarded up. Basically the city is dying and it is a sad state of affairs. If you miss that interview, it is on his channel. I'd encourage you to go check that out. So it's a sad, sad thing that's happening there. And we'll see if this continues to spread throughout the country. Just like a lot of other bad ideas from New York. All right. Let's take a [email protected] I saw a super chat here. Come in from Brody. Z says collapsing a local economy. Step one, limit everything. I think it's, I think it's pretty obvious that this something like this is going to have very, very long lasting effects for the city of New York. And that is a problematic thing for people who live there want to know, says, Rob, can your info be scammed? Sounds like the first step to chipping that's from want to know, I'm not sure specifically what type of info you're talking about. Miss lucky is here says is the Blasio going to write a book like Cuomo about all the good work he is doing? He might make a lot of money. Not. Yeah, I don't know if you listen to the media, they're sort of fawning over him. Like this is a big glorious, brilliant new idea. The NSA is here. It says, Hey, New York residents, please install the app. You're totally not going to spy on you. That's from the NSA so you can trust the NSA. They're good. Lorenzo greasy bottoms is here, says last year, liberals wanted to punch Nazis this year. Liberals want to see everyone's papers. How ironic it is. Interesting how that flips a little bit very quickly too . We have Sergeant Bob is here, says Nazi Germany had Jewish people wear yellow emblem. Why not just have New York seat where a big yellow seat showing that they are COVID spreaders easy and then they could be beaten in the streets. Yeah, they could be beaten in the streets and uh, and just sort of, you know, segregated

Speaker 5:

Into the camps because they are

Speaker 1:

The malcontents. They are the people who don't

Speaker 5:

Follow orders. And so they need to be reeducated . I'll see you there.

Speaker 1:

Sergeant, we have a soul Viking says convenience to hold immunization status, or even a grander form of coercion, truly an abuse of human rights, allowing autonomy. I agree with you, soul biking . I think it is so problematic. Uh, but we have people clapping like seals as it rolls itself, all around us. African-Americans have the lowest tax rate in New York city. This is coming from thunder seven. The Blasio has a black son. Will he be a part of the racial segregation taking place now? And what proof of the Nazi leaders showing to see if they've been jabbed Pfizer and CDC, employees are not mandated to get vacs . And many of them are not getting injected. How can the Dems get away with this? Well, they're in charge.

Speaker 5:

They control the white house.

Speaker 1:

They have , uh , for some, some weird way. They have some influence with the Supreme court. They've been asleep at the wheel. We also

Speaker 5:

Have them in control of the

Speaker 1:

White house and all of Congress, both chambers and the media. So they're doing what they want to do. Uh, John Helgren is here, says anyone excited about NYC and this key idea, skipped history class. This is absurd. Why don't we have a tuberculosis Abbott kills more people every year than COVID does. How about a mosquito app? Did you put on your repellent, those suckers kill 1.5 million people a year. This is shameful behavior. Yeah. I mean all sorts of different things, right? I mean, what if look, what if people just said, well, you know, you, you engage in risky behavior and we just don't like this. And so we're just going to segment you out. You're you're too dangerous and you can start putting people in those different camps pretty quickly.

Speaker 5:

And you start to really divide people by pitting them against one another.

Speaker 1:

Especially when it comes to these situations, it really is reprehensible. And people are just really excited about it. I don't get it. The DOB says I couldn't find the first app. The second app has two versions. Both have two trackers, Google analytics to collect data on your usage of the app. And six permissions. Two of those permissions are rated dangerous due to the camera permission and a permission that can modify system settings either way. I'm not downloading an app, unless it is fast. No trackers. Sorry, Billy boy, this is the report here from , uh, from exit as privacy. Let's take a quick look and see what this has to say. All right. So the Excelsior, yeah, here it is. That's just brilliant NYC Excelsior past two trackers, six permission source from Google play , uh, permission to your camera, internet wake lock, right. Settings bind. We have signed by. Okay. Uh, yeah. So very interesting stuff there. Thank you for that. Yeah. It's

Speaker 5:

I guess that's

Speaker 1:

From the dark, I guess they want the rest of your medical information at some point as well. Paula MK is here, says I got into a discussion about vaccine and mass mandates with someone who gave me this fortune acre line, your individual rights are relevant when it comes to public health. Wasn't the constitution graded for this very reason? Well, you know, my , my question on that automatically would be, what is your limiting principle on that, right? W where does that

Speaker 5:

Ever stop? Because you could, I mean ,

Speaker 1:

Theoretically, you could extend that to any sickness anywhere, and then that just leads to constant totalitarian society. Doesn't it? Because you can extend that indefinitely. All right. Anyways, wasn't the constitution created for this very reason to dictate that our individual rights are not irrelevant because the government says, so I looked through the constitution, found the ninth amendment to be applicable since SCOTUS had previously stated that personal healthcare decisions are included as an innumerable rights described in the amendment. But wondering why SCOTUS is not adhering to this. Now, why is going bringing this up in lawsuits? It's a good question, Paula MK. You know , I am certain that we're going to see many, many new lawsuits that people are going to be filing this stuff all over the place. There is a local attorney here in Arizona who does some employment law. And so I sort of defer , uh , a lot of these cases out to employment lawyers, because I've been getting the same questions. You know, what are the legal basis for challenging these mandates? And , uh , quite frankly, folks, candidly, I do not have any faith in our courts to adhere to individual liberties on this debate. If any court, most courts are going to take a look at this and it's going to be a balancing act between individual rights and liberties and public safety, wellbeing , government obligations, government liability, being in compliant with the rest of the in-crowd. And I don't have any faith. The judges in this country, you're going to just start finding in favor of individual liberties here. There's that dichotomy. I can't imagine favors the individual. We've already seen this here. We've seen businesses Sue the government for totally legitimate reasons, in my opinion. And the courts just come back out and say, well, they're the governor, they're there. This is the government. We don't know what else to do. The only thing we can do is just shut you down because we have no real answer. It's the easy answer and they just upheld it. So I think that's probably going to be how the courts go for the foreseeable future and plan accordingly. Sergeant Bob says, how about converting old school buses to restaurants? That's a good question there , Sergeant , you know, it has a roof, it has several walls. And so I'd have to pull the rules back up, but if you have a school bus, I would just say, just drive it right out of New York and never look back. It's probably the better idea falling onto line says, do you think the Afghanistan thing, isn't a diversion from the fact that the Lord's majority of the unboxed people are of color. What do you think we'll get our groceries in New York city. Do you think that the 2020 summer of unrest was bad? Watch out for the fall of 21, hungry people do extreme things, include riding and looting. Then the guns, then the confiscating suspension of second amendment rights. Joe just ignored the constitution last week, Robert, this is locals , right ? Free speech. Read the questions and the comments Meow. So , uh, it , it is locals, but we're also simulcasting on, on YouTube. So we gotta be a little bit careful. Still eventually locals will be the platform, but we're still transitioning over there. So we're still sort of multi streaming and I gotta be careful. The antique is prime says, and people will just keep going along with this stuff. You know, we've seen this over the past year, really leads to Koreans to the fact that there are two types of people in the world. There are those that will say, gosh , I can't remember aircraft. Max says, well, this is just great. If the pandemic and the closure of small businesses, wasn't enough, let's go around and cripple the remaining businesses that are open by encouraging people who don't want to VAX just to stay home and dine . Yeah. Yeah. It's , it's going to have a very, very cascading effect on all small businesses. Tos forever says what happens when health does not allow for the vacs for reception or a person that has natural immunity? What another debacle to unbuckle interesting that a baker has to bake a cake for what the baker can not relate to, but you cannot eat or buy groceries unless you allow the government to make you an addict to the flu, right? We're seeing all sorts of , uh , contradictions here from certain political ideologies, LT 13 says, what is the law that goes along with this kingdom? Blasio can just come down with this. What is someone doesn't? What is the code the police used? So LT 13. I think what he's going to do now is issue an executive order. And that is the law, right? It's his executive order using the power of the care-taking power of the government, the general welfare clause of whatever you know, authority he has under the constitution of New York or New York city, wherever he's drawing his authority from, he's just going to do it by executive Fiat. He's just going to pass an order and that's going to be it. And everybody's going to comply. Uh, nobody voted for it. They voted for him before the pandemic hit and he's just been modifying things. However he wants to do, which is pretty much in sync with the rest of the federal government. All right. We have want to know, says, so a lawyer has trouble figuring out these complicated rules. Why can't the rules be simple? Rob, Rob can make more money this way. How high can the walls be slotted , slated or fabric walls? Did they know the COVID floated up? It just floats up in a way maybe out on exhaust event . Yeah, I think we should put people in front of wind turbines. Just get away with the walls, just get away with the roofs and just put, you know, those big you see at the side of the football games where they just are cooling all of the players down there , like, you know, six feet tall and they blow like ear , uh , you know , uh, aircraft turbines. We should just put those in people's faces everywhere they go and , and just give them like soup and spaghetti and see how that works out for everybody. No COVID and we'll have some nice dining experiences. It'll be pretty funny. We have another one here says, come on, Rob bow down and submit. If everyone will just vaccinate, they won't have to learn. These rules. Vaccine is the key to our freedom. People believe that dead mouse five says DeBlasio only has a few months left in office. Is there a chance that Eric , Adam nullifies all these COVID restrictions since he seems a little bit more , you know, same , um , I don't know who Eric Adams is dead now. I'm sort of , uh , an outsider jumping into New York politics. And so I don't, I apologize if I don't know who that is, but yeah, I think the Blasio is sort of on the way out, right? It's like, let's go out with a bang. I mean, he's eating cheeseburgers in the middle of a pandemic when people who are overweight are a lot more likely to have severe consequences from COVID and he's cramming French fries and cheeseburgers in his face during these press conferences, rather than telling people, Hey, go exercise. Why don't you get up and do some pushups go around the block, go spend some time out there, just walking in the sunlight. So you get some nice disinfecting sunrays none of that happened. It's stay home, block your face up in mass and just sit there until the government says it's safe. And by the way , uh , when you do come out, you're gonna have to follow all of our rule rules. Otherwise you can't engage in the same economy that you used to be able to get into. Uh, Scott Morrison of Australia said he has for freedom and the Afghan people yet he's for sending troops and the Gestapo to enforce the lockdowns. Well, isn't that ironic? That was from Scott Morrison is a Nazi three girl . He says this vaccine pass is only going to last. As long as the businesses are able to stay open and pay their taxes. So will the police or government worker enforce these rules when they aren't getting paid? Also anyone sitting outside right now, we'll have to figure out something different. When the weather changes, it looks like Walmart door dash and the food delivery services are going to be the only ones

Speaker 5:

That can survive these mandates.

Speaker 1:

Yeah. I agree with you on that three girlies . I think

Speaker 5:

That probably some of that is by, I ,

Speaker 1:

I have to say design. I asked Joe yesterday on his channel. Why people aren't just standing up, right? Why aren't the new Yorkers just saying enough already, right ? Vote this man out, you know , um, demand something else happened . And the response was very sad. It's just, people just left. They just decided it's not worth it. It's not worth the fight anymore. And , um , probably the end of the city, according to Joe, we have Lauren says, let the bribing begin. So that's another thing too , right ? That my , my sort of response to all of the vaccine stuff, the vaccine mandate stuff is I think enforceability is going to be the big problem here. They can pass all the laws in the world. They can key to NYC, whatever they can send all the inspectors out and people are just going to say, okay, whatever. As soon as the inspector leaves, it's back to business. As usual, they're not gonna be able to enforce this. And so once they see what a joke it is, and once everybody's laughing at it, they'll have no choice, but to sort of just phase it out and try to cover for their ineptitude. No doubt says no doubt says, did he relax? The signed permit fees required to post a sign? Probably not. Is that a $200 signed permit or more good question? I don't know any exemptions for that there. And NYC says , um , there's another question with no name going to jump over that one wants to know says, seems like the keys to you hall would be more useful to leave. I see what you did. There wants to know. I like it. We have speech unleashed says, so this one policy is supposed to help prevent COVID spread, but there are exemptions for certain people. So how does that prevent the spread of COVID has already been proven that vaccinated people can still get an pass on COVID plus never heard. There was a minimum timeframe necessary for COVID to transmit to person, to person. The , my policy makes zero sense, unless it is all about control. And I think you nailed it there . Speech on lease, which is really what it's all about. Uh , the Blasio came out specifically and said that this is to incentivize people to get vaccinated. That's the purpose. It's not about stopping COVID it's not about eliminating the virus. It's not about saving lives. It's about getting people vaccinated, which I think you could say that arguably, you know, would, would result in people ,

Speaker 5:

People having their lives saves if you want it to speculate out that far. Right? But presumably at this point, the people who are choosing not to get vaccinated have made a decision

Speaker 1:

On that basis, right? The medical decision, they think they're healthy. They think they've had it. They think they've got some natural immunity. They think that

Speaker 5:

They can survive it and they don't want to get it.

Speaker 1:

Maybe they've talked to their doctor and that's the decision that they've made. So in that case now the , the government from New York city is, is penalizing people. Who've already

Speaker 5:

Medical decision. That's legitimate

Speaker 1:

About control. It's not about COVID. Uh, Kareem sear is here, says they say they are blocking non-essential services. The problem is essential is all about how long you can go without it. Water can wait a day or two dentistry. You can wait several weeks, even arts years for dentistry, even arts and culture ends up being essential. Just imagine if we did not have any of that over the past 100 years, do you think our society would have functioned? Well?

Speaker 5:

Uh, no, I do not think so. No. I think people should be free to engage in economies.

Speaker 1:

That's part of, one of the fundamental liberties that we enjoy, but not anymore. The antique is prime is here. It says, watch the movie rollerball . There was a great line in there . Quote, it seems a long time ago, people had to make a decision between having freedom or having nice things. And they chose comfort. Also the little things in that movie will thank you will make you think about a lot of the stuff you see today. Yeah . It's , it's a lot easier rather than getting mad at your government to just go buy something on Amazon, right. Rather than saying this is offensive. And what they're doing is they're inflating my money. Literally out of it ,

Speaker 5:

My bank account, you just say, well, what am I going to do?

Speaker 1:

So I'm going to go buy the new game on whatever. And that's going to

Speaker 5:

Going to hold you over for the time being

Speaker 1:

A couple more Jeremy [inaudible] is here, traveling around the country. Jeremy is, Hey , Rob . I still believe there was something wrong with mixing vaccine issues with being allowed to participate in society. By the way, only been in Georgia a day and already have been warmly welcomed. I'm not being facetious. I got a rental car upgrade for being polite, got many hellos. I still have faith in my fellow. Americans never liked the humidity though, but I will live that's right. Good to see you, Jeremy. Thanks for the update. Traveling on over Jeremy posted in locals that he had some , uh ,

Speaker 5:

Uh , travel issues, airport problems,

Speaker 1:

But he made it and he's there and he's doing well. Thank you for the update, Jeremy. And thanks for keeping us apprised of what's going on. Good luck to you. Safe travels. We have over here. Sweet PO take tow says in Washington state, if you don't get the vaccination and you don't use one of the exemptions, medical or religious, which are aren't automatic, by the way, then you may not qualify for unemployment. Pretty clear message that unvaccinated people are being shunned from society, trade and everything. We are turning into your Cuba story where you will have to dine in the underground. Yeah. You're going to have to get your bootleg grocery .

Speaker 5:

All the [inaudible] people are gonna be like, Hey, you got some beans. You got some potatoes. Yeah.

Speaker 1:

Got a whole [inaudible] colony. Just growing potatoes underground.

Speaker 5:

Come get some,

Speaker 1:

Oh , we have next, our last one, thunder seven is here. Says I want to be there. When the newly hired woke cops try to hand out tickets to black citizens. Yeah. See how that goes. Yeah. If the, if the police law enforcement institutions have already been completely degraded over the course of the last 12 months or so the Institute, the , the legitimacy, the faith in those institutions has been eroded. What do you

Speaker 5:

Think this does? When you're a business

Speaker 1:

Owner trying to put food on the table for your family and you have some bureaucrat as a investigator , uh, excuse me, Mr. Gerler are you adhering to the COVID policies here? I know we just shut you down and all these problems were causing for you, but now we have new mandates .

Speaker 5:

Ooh , not. Okay.

Speaker 1:

All right . We have a couple super chats that came in Brody. We got that one. We have Andrew Passman. They really cared about our health. There would have been a vaccine for a lot of the public bathrooms I have been in. Yeah. I know those public bathrooms, especially if you're on a road trip, you have to stop at one of those gas stations. Those are, those are rough, but they kind of turn you into a tougher person. Don't date. You have to get in there, do your business, get back out safe

Speaker 5:

With everything intact, nothing troubling going on a little bit,

Speaker 1:

Little mini war zone got to get in and out of there faster than Kabul we have. Uh , Ditkas bears is here. Whoa, with a big, big, super chat that is says impeach 46 and minus 46, the VP, you know, I'm seeing a lot of calls for that out there. And the , the , the prospect of , uh , vice president Kamala Harris just makes me,

Speaker 5:

You just feel a lot of different ways, probably going to happen.

Speaker 1:

And just having a difficult time, reading the teleprompters . It's getting worse day by day. Thank you for that. Very generous Superchat there, Dick cause bears. We'll see what I will see what happens. Look, if they can impeach Trump twice, you can, you can get it. You can squeeze it . You can justify an impeachment for Joe. We have a Dr .

Speaker 5:

EMB is back.

Speaker 1:

I haven't seen Dr. EMB in a long time. Dr. EMB was around , uh, many, many months ago when we just w w we were new with the show says, thank you, Robert, your team for your intelligent analysis and dedicated work on researching all of these issues. I really enjoy your show. Thank you doctor. I appreciate you being here. It's good to see you back. It's good to see the name back. It says I was very saddened to learn that an Emirates plane could not land to extricate 100 children, including the four to six Afghany female teenagers who are world renowned for having invented some very intricate and high level robotics, no stem careers for them, you know? Yeah. It's

Speaker 5:

Dr . Those it's those stories that really, you know, it's hard, it's hard as a nation to just abandon that for

Speaker 1:

Six Afghany female teenagers who are world renowned for having invented some very intricate and high-level robot ex

Speaker 5:

Lost teenage ,

Speaker 1:

Right? They , they grew up in an Afghanistan that was safe because the United States was there

Speaker 5:

For 20 years, 16, 14, 13, 12, their whole life, the United States has been there . U S picks up the whole world changes,

Speaker 1:

Who knows what happens to those girls? It's a tragedy. It's a very sad thing.

Speaker 5:

And you know, in the emotion of the tragedy of the withdrawal of whatever

Speaker 1:

Victory, if you're Joe Biden there, this is great. Now we plan for this

Speaker 5:

Things orchestrated, got it.

Speaker 1:

Remember that these are human beings. We're talking about. Don't want to let don't want to let the politics disassociate us from our humanity. No matter what side is doing the acting we gotta it's immigration. It's the Afghanis. If it's China,

Speaker 5:

These are human

Speaker 1:

Beings, and we can't lose sight of that. I know it's very easy to join a team and just spike the football against the other team. But we've got to keep that in mind, these are human beings we're talking about. All right. And that was from Dr. ENB . Those are some great questions over from watching the watchers.locals.com. I think we had a couple more, let me get these real quickly. Rad says this is a virus. It will change. We can't be locked down forever. Or can we, I think they may be trying to do that. We have a Mike Servon Tessa . So he's trying to going with the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Yeah. I think China is doing whatever they can to just needle this current administration. And they're doing a pretty good job of it. All right. And so that's it for the questions from watching the washers.locals.com. Thank you to everybody who is a chime in with all the great questions chatting away over there. We've got [inaudible] . We've got speech unleashed. Mr. Global man is in the house along with pinky , too on YouTube shout outs, over to too legit to quit and Miller peach time and Clinton, Noel , thank you everybody for making the live stream as fun as it is. All right, we've got one more segment on the show today. Long show, long, Monday, busy, busy day, a lot of activity going on out here. So we're going to get into the final segment.

Speaker 5:

Homeland security has identified

Speaker 1:

Yet another group of extremists. Can you believe this? There are so many of them. I know it's hard to keep track of them all, but fortunately , uh, Alejandro Majorca, who is the secretary of DHS, put it in writing for us. And so we're going to take a look at this document. You can see this as a national terrorism advisory system bulletin coming out from your very, very trusted, very loyal, very reliable department of Homeland security. You'll notice this came out Friday, August 13th, right in the middle of the debacle, as it was starting to unfold in Afghanistan. And so they like to kind of slide these things out on Fridays. You know how they do that? All the bad news comes out on Fridays. It's like, Hey, hunter, Biden stuff, Fridays, you know, anything that's problematic for administration's Fridays because they know that the American public is checked out. Everybody wants to go and start enjoying their weekends . So they do this stuff on Fridays.

Speaker 5:

Pretty standard

Speaker 1:

Doubly disturbing though, was that the rest of the country was focused on something else. So many people just missed this entirely Friday, August 13th. Now we have a new national terrorism advisory system bulletin going to be issued August 13th, going to stay in effect until November 11th . So we've got several months of this now of , uh , you know, morning's new alerts, new terrorism, you know ,

Speaker 5:

Oh , and this was before cobble fell . This was on Friday, cobble fell on Sunday. And so now

Speaker 1:

I guess we're going to have a whole nother set of terrorism coming out. So we've got all of the international terrorism is back on the menu boys. So we're going to be able to deal with that boogeyman for the foreseeable future. On Friday, though, they're directing our attention back towards a domestic terrorism, which we've already spent a lot of time with this administration about. So let's go through this memo and make sure we can make some sense of it. It's going to start off with an introduction. You'll notice here that it says the secretary of Homeland security, which is this guy, his name is Alejandro Mayorkas. So don't let them hide behind

Speaker 5:

These, these labels. Okay.

Speaker 1:

It is this man who is issuing this new national terrorism advisory system bulletin saying there's heightened threat level across the United States. We continue to face diverse challenges. All of this is coming up because of nine 11, and also religious holidays that could be catalysts for acts targeting violence. So we're going to look at both of those , uh, specifically this one, what religious holidays are they talking about? Remember, we're going from August 13th to November 11. So we're going to take a look at those months. See if we can identify what these religious holidays they're talking about, but he says specifically, these are threats. They're posed by domestic terrorists. We've already seen a lot of that. They're engaged in grievance based violence, whatever that means as though , uh , as I was there, there's violence that is not grievance based, right? If you're going to be violent with somebody, it's typically because you have a grievance with them, unless it's sort of violence for sports or violence, because you're a psychopath. And you'd like to kill people just for no reason. But , uh , most of it's pretty much grievance based. And those inspired or motivated by foreign terrorists. These actors are increasingly exploiting on-line forums. Like what? Like discord or locals or Twitter or Facebook or gab, or what else? Parlor, all right . Online forums, very dangerous. And what are they doing there ? They're spreading extremist narratives. You see that they're also promoting violent activity. So we're going to take a look at what these violent extremist narratives are. Such threats are also exacerbated by the ongoing global pandemic. See that including grievances over public health measures and perceived government restrictions. And so this is pretty important here. This word perceived there .

Speaker 5:

Tell us that, what are we, what are we talking about here? Are they

Speaker 1:

Grievances over actual public restrictions? Or are they over perceived government restrictions? Because those are two different things. If people are talking about the perceived government restrictions that are not actually in effect,

Speaker 5:

That's , that's

Speaker 1:

A separate conversation from the actual restrictions that are in effect. So he's talking about the perceived government restrictions, but we don't also know

Speaker 5:

What that means because these government

Speaker 1:

Restrictions are dynamic. They keep changing the goalposts, keep moving all the time. It used to be that you could just get the vaccine and you were good to go. Don't have

Speaker 5:

To worry about it again, but then

Speaker 1:

Started to see these breakthrough cases and started to see other people transmit it. Now you gotta put your mask back on. And so all of the restrictions are constantly moving around,

Speaker 5:

Not a steady target. So he's going to be telling us now this is concerning that people have

Speaker 1:

Misuse with government restrictions, whether they're real or perceived. So I want to take us back to this concept that there are problematic religious holidays, that this is all now a concern, because leading up to nine 11 and these religious holidays, this could be troubling. And let's take a look at some of these holidays. And so I thought to myself,

Speaker 5:

Well, I'm just a , you know, Catholic boy, you know, I don't remember in my upbringing, any violent Catholic religious holidays that might make me want to spring out, but I'm not, you know , I haven't done

Speaker 1:

Well then all of the other religions here is from diversity resources.com. They gave us a list of all the religions. So in August we should be concerned about pagans and the Wiccans, but , uh , August 1st already passed . Uh , the Islamic new year started on August 10th, but that came and went. We have a Roman Catholics that was yesterday, a feast of assumption. There was no , uh, uh, no Catholic activities there that I knew of. Now

Speaker 5:

In September, we got a lot of dates, the jail ,

Speaker 1:

Diane , I think as a religion, we have, we have Jewish Russia Shauna's in September. So we might have to be concerned about that. On nine 11, we have the Koch , Dick Orthodox Christians. They have their coapting new year, which is a feast day when both martyrs and confessors are commemorated in the church. So , uh, you know, I'm not sure if the Orthodox Christian cope are going to become problematic, but they do share an anniversary with nine 11. Uh, the Jews are back again, Yom Kippor nine 16 , uh , brace yourselves for that could be trouble. We have 9 20, 1 of the Jews. Again, a suc Sukkot is a day that commemorates the years, the Jews journey into the desert. So that might be a problem. A Hindus obviously varies

Speaker 5:

Very , very , uh, you know, very truthful

Speaker 1:

Nine 20 a , the pagans, again, the pagans and the Wiccans are back. And then we get back to the Islamic , uh, groups here on 9 28 , uh, then October, same thing, Hindus, the Hindus and the Islamic again over there. And then we get

Speaker 5:

November and I'm not really sure

Speaker 1:

Much . We have the pagan and the weekends, the Christians have all saints day, the Rastafarians in November, maybe they're going to be the troublemakers, the Rastafarians, or the Hindus, or the bah,

Speaker 5:

Bah , uh , birthdays.

Speaker 1:

We got birthday celebrating. And so I don't know what they're talking about. Oh , the Sikhs are coming in on 11, 19. Okay . Uh , you know, I don't know what they're talking about. I think

Speaker 5:

Everything is , uh ,

Speaker 1:

Pretty standard to me. I'm not real sure what religious holidays they're talking about. That might be so problematic, but let's take a look in and dive in a little bit further. All right, here, we've got additional details. They say through the remainder of 2021, here's what we've got. We've got racially or ethnically motivated, violent extremists . And so we've got our M V E C this year. We've already talked about several other of these on this channel. We talked about DVS , a domestic violent extremism. We also talked about HVS homegrown, violent extremists. And then of course we know that , uh, John Brennan was talking about libertarians as being problematic. So these people are either racially or ethnically motivated extremists . And they're also government or anti-authority anti-government , anti-authority violent extremist. So we've got two new categories, R E M V E . And then we've got G a V E. So lot more extremists coming out could be racial, could be ethnic, could be anti-government could be anti-authority.

Speaker 5:

Wow . So

Speaker 1:

All of those groups are now going to remain national threats. They may seek to exploit the emergence of COVID-19 as a rationale to conduct these attacks. And they're also talking about pandemic related stressors that have contributed to the societal strains, which is very interesting because the government basically caused all of those. As I note right here, all caused by government mismanagement. Now they're also saying that Al Qaeda is stepping things up and recall this was on February. I'm sorry. This was on Friday, right? Leading up to the anniversary of nine 11, Al Qaeda is already reorganizing itself on the Arabian peninsula. They actually put an English copy magazine out there, the first one over four years. So they have this new magazine called inspire magazine. That's now out now that despite all of these warnings, they are telling us that there are no credible or imminent threats that have been identified currently at these locations, but you still need to be bracing yourself for it. None, the less foreign and domestic threat actors who are these people, they include foreign intelligence services. So foreign nation states that have intelligence services. We also have international terrorist groups that are going to be involved, but then we get over to the DVS , right? This is the same category that we've already heard a lot about domestic violent extremists. They're going to be amplifying these narratives and calling for

Speaker 5:

Violence. They do this on

Speaker 1:

Multiple online platforms that we don't have defined for us. So I'm asking, is it parlor? Is it getter? Is it Twitter? Is it Facebook? Is it gab ? Is it whatever may orcas

Speaker 5:

Just says it is? Does it change?

Speaker 1:

What are we looking for? They're saying that they're associated with DVE ideologies, which again, I don't really know what that means. Domestic violent extremists. It's such a broad category that it can mean anything they're talking about. That they're being associated with those ideologies or conspiracy theories about perceived election fraud and the alleged reinstatement, and then responses to once again, anticipated restrictions

Speaker 5:

Over COVID cases. They're

Speaker 1:

Saying that they derive inspiration from these various online communities

Speaker 5:

And they're using particular

Speaker 1:

Messaging platforms, things like telegram and signal

Speaker 5:

And VPNs.

Speaker 1:

If you're going to be sort of maneuvering around some of the data, they're going to be using Tor , they're going to be using all of this information to just hone in on you to make sure that you're not there

Speaker 5:

Dangerous. Cause it's it's trouble now out case

Speaker 1:

Reorganizing. Now over on the Arabian peninsula on Friday, they were doing that now, what are they doing

Speaker 5:

Now? That cobble has fallen. All right, we have some more here from the rest of this bulletin.

Speaker 1:

Law enforcement has expressed concerns that people are sharing false narratives and that these conspiracy theories will gain traction in mainstream environments. So they're really that people might start to,

Speaker 5:

You know, identify an alternative explanation, consider that to be the truth. Maybe it is.

Speaker 1:

And maybe people start actually believing it.

Speaker 5:

It becomes it gains main stream adoption. It also says that a lot of these conspiracy

Speaker 1:

Have been amplified by the Russians, by the Chinese and by the Iranians. And so I'd like to know specifically what different conspiracy theories are there that they're saying about the origins of COVID-19, because we know that we've talked about it a lot here on the channel, the difference between the lab escape theory and the natural origin theory may orcas here through the department of Homeland. Security is telling us that the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians they're all involved in it did there there's sowing discord, nation, state adversaries are spreading around conspiracy theories about the Corona virus and about the effectiveness of the vaccines. That's what he says, specifically, amplifying calls for calls of violence. So if they are doing those things, what are they

Speaker 5:

Spreading? What is the problem? Well,

Speaker 1:

DHS is on it. This is what they're going to be doing to respond. They are telling us here that they're going to identify these calls. We don't know how they're going to do that. Whether they're going to use warrants, whether they're gonna use the Pfizer court, whether they're going to be monitoring people who are traveling overseas, what different buckets of people are they going to put into this analysis? Now they're not going to tell us, obviously, because it's the department of Homeland security and they've got a strong interest in making sure that their mechanisms there , their investigatory powers are not revealed so that people can't reverse engineer those things, but still, this is a very, very broad

Speaker 5:

Spectrum bulletin. It encompasses a lot of things ,

Speaker 1:

A behavior that might otherwise be constitutionally protected. And so if they're going to be telling us that they're going to be monitoring this stuff and identifying all of the different , uh , potential problems here, we need to make sure somebody needs to make sure that this is not improperly encroaching on protected, legitimate speech, protected, legitimate government activity. You don't just get to be the Homeland security, the department of Homeland security, and just get to pass these bulletins without somebody putting some pressure back on the other direction. What are you talking about? Evaluating calls for violence? What does that mean? What types of online activity are you going to be investigating? What is disinformation here? You say it's the spread of disinformation? What

Speaker 5:

Is that? Okay. Disinformation

Speaker 1:

Is a little bit different than misinformation. Misinformation is information that's wrong and it's being spread around. Not for nefarious purposes. Disinformation is information that is necessarily being spread around for nefarious purposes. It's wrong. They know it's wrong and they're spreading it around anyways. So why w what is that? Who are they saying is doing this conspiracy theories and false narratives? Is it actually disinformation? Are those false narratives actually intentionally wrong disinformation? Or is it misinformation or is it accurate information? The gatekeeper of misinformation and disinformation is, is going to be able to control that gate regardless of the information it's, it's

Speaker 5:

Gatekeeping . They're

Speaker 1:

Also talking about suspected threat actors have no idea who those are. DHS continues to encourage the public, to maintain awareness. They're asking local law enforcement officials for open lines of communication with federal partners. They want authoritative sources of information to be out there and available to debunk and preempt false narratives. Okay. Again, nobody knows what that means. More broadly. They're going to identify whatever. Okay? So you see what's going on here. How you can help. You can report the suspicious activity yourself. You can understand how to navigate the internet better, and you can respond to false and harmful narratives, but above all my friends, make sure you're listening to local authorities and public safety officials. The government is here and we are absolutely ready and able to help. So let's take a quick [email protected] and see what we've got for our final segment here. If there's any questions, we'll wrap those up. It looks like we have some here. Trump, Trump, Trump says a off topic,

Speaker 5:

Says,

Speaker 1:

Let's see here. Okay, we're going to , we're going to save that one for, for the end of the show. Uh, one second. We're just gonna remove me one second. We're gonna save that one. That's a good one. We're going to save it here for the end of the show. Make sure I get to it and let me pull up this forum in a different way.

Speaker 5:

All right.

Speaker 1:

Okay. All right. Apologies for that. Alright . Uh , Sergeant Bob is here, says mid east crisis is the shiny red ball. That is the , uh, the red herring. It's keeping our attention away from us on something else. Meanwhile, at home, they are just clamping down restrictions across the board. We have another one here from VNT prime, with a long one. Let's go through this as we'll spend 20 years so that we can have $2 trillion memes, but spend no money on things like education, housing, health, just plain old financial stability for the average individual. Yet we're supposed to believe some BS over why people become violent. You know, people talk about the problem with mob rule, but we already live under mob rule. It's just a different definition of the mob. So I asked people, would you rather, which would you rather have if you were stuck deciding between the two also, I want to add my little bit of wisdom or lack thereof to what you were saying about people being human beings. It's this, I find it pointless to hate people as individuals. If you're going to hate something, don't hate the player, hate the game. If you find yourself hating people, I find it's easier to try to change other people. If you're going to hate something, hate life. We're making all of us stupid and doing stupid things that have stupid reactions. I find that way. I'm more willing to just accept people as they are and adjust myself accordingly. Yeah. You know, if you, if you allow, I think that inhumanity to fester in your heart, that's where it becomes , uh ,

Speaker 5:

It becomes kind of

Speaker 1:

Ingrained in you and it sort of spreads around and it's not a healthy it's it's toxic. You don't want that to come into your interior life , uh , at all. Thank you for that VNC. Cause prime. It's a good, good, good comment. And I appreciate it. I'm not gas as remember the Yom Kippur war better to deploy the FBI to the Brooklyn bagel shops. Yeah, I was. Yeah. So I'm not gas. Yeah. I mean ,

Speaker 5:

Uh,

Speaker 1:

Can't even comment on it. It's too ridiculous. It's too ridiculous to comment on Sergeant Bob says the crucifix crucifixion was pretty violent. Easter could be an issue. It could be Easter. Yeah. That's true. Forgot about Easter. But we already had Easter. It's not in the time zone. It's from August to November. So I don't know what else it could be. We have Sharon Quinny says a perceived government restrictions. It sounds like a line from any totalitarian dictatorship you would care to mention. There are no unnecessary or excessive government restrictions. Everything is for the public. Good. And you can kiss your you-know-what goodbye along with all your civil liberties and constitutional rights that is from Sharon Quinney . Good to see you, Sharon. Let's see what else we have here. We've got, I'm not gas. As you know, the amount of calls to violence on these forums could be cut in half. If the FBI stopped fed posting on them. Love that fed posting. Uh, yeah. Right? Cause they're they're everywhere. You forgot about the white privilege holidays. You're right. I forgot about that. Labor day. Columbus day. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Yeah. That's right. White people. Yeah. It's just, those are, those are days of national mourning for, I think the rest of the country, we have a wants to know, says the Taliban leader said he wants the mausoleum to spread through the whole world. I don't like his rules at all. Since most of them think the USA

Speaker 5:

Is number one. Do they think

Speaker 1:

That good to see you once . Let's see what else we've got another one here says what about old man hair sniffers his killing a lot of Afghanistan people right now think that's talking about snippy , Joe . We have Sharon says, watch, they're preparing the next crisis for when people get tired of the COVID stuff or it dies down. So it's no longer a crisis. They have to have a crisis in order to increase their tyrannical stranglehold. That's from Sharon Courtney . We have a couple more tos forever says how interesting that for 244 years, America has these very holidays happening with the sweetness of honey and apples that have made America a success. Now we are supposed to believe DHS is

Speaker 5:

Legit. Doesn't this read like Marx

Speaker 1:

Lenin , Hitler rock group. I like they're forming a band , uh, like , uh, th th

Speaker 5:

Hitler in the dictators Hitler

Speaker 1:

And the totalitarians Biden in the commies

Speaker 5:

Playing this Friday night at your local bar, bring your VAX pass.

Speaker 1:

You can get in. Yeah, it's a it's troubling. We have here. Thunder seven says, Rob, you don't know don't you know that believing in God is racist. I forgot about that. If you believe in any divine being, you are a white supremacist, rostas are racist along with the Mennonites who preserved and jellies and those Catholics that venerate with the Christ, the king arrest them all. They're clearly domestic terrorists, Hasidic and Amish communities are next on the wash watch list. Yeah. It's dangerous out there. Look, if you believe in God, then that means you don't believe in Dr. Fowchee because he is too many people are Lord incarnate on this planet. And so, yeah, it's blessed FIM . It's it's if you, if you believe in Jesus Christ, that's like blasphemous to many people who believe in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and AOC, they're going to , they're going to solve all of that for us. Want to know is here says, so if you didn't vote for a Democrat, your , a terrorist. Yeah. I think it's something like that. If you, if you sort of don't agree with any of , any of what the government is saying, then that is a problem. Let's see here. Uh, we've got all right. We're going to save that for the very loud . Okay. So , uh , that my friends was all of the questions over from watching the watchers.locals.com. And over on YouTube, we're gonna give some shout outs to everybody who's chatting away over there.
