13-Minute News Hour w/ Bobby Eberle – Taliban Threatens Biden; “A Lot Could Still Go Wrong” 8/23/21

the taliban is now calling the shots while joe biden says a lot could still go wrong media coverage is starting to turn against biden as afghanistan chaos continues plus conservative icon larry elder draws more attention in the california recall race all that and more i’m bobby eberly this is a 13-minute news hour [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] okay friends welcome to the show happy monday i hope you had a great weekend if you’re new to the show thank you so much for tuning in we’re gonna start with the taliban and joe biden because during a weekend where the taliban has increased its control over afghanistan and has positioned itself to tell america what it can and cannot do joe biden held a press conference and said a lot could still go wrong now on the taliban side leaders warned america on monday that there would be consequences if america stayed longer than the august 31st deadline put in place by joe biden and here’s the story taliban leaders warned monday that u.s and british troops will face consequences if they continue evacuations at kabul’s international airport past president biden’s self-imposed august 31st deadline to withdraw from afghanistan the threat from taliban spokesman suhail shaheen puts even more pressure on the biden administration and its allies to complete its withdrawal of diplomatic personnel military service members and afghan allies before the end of the month i guess it’s pretty clear who’s calling the shots now in the absence of leadership taliban forces are moving around unchecked and now they are upping the rhetoric against the biden administration and this is exactly what one would expect following the american foreign policy disaster that we are seeing play out before our eyes and here’s more it’s a red line president biden announced that on 31 august they would withdraw all their military forces so if they extend it that means they are extending occupation while there is no need for that mr shaheen the taliban spokesperson said in an interview with sky news published early monday morning if the u.s or uk were to seek additional time to continue evacuations the answer is no or there would be consequences now while the taliban is getting stronger joe biden appears to be getting weaker he held a press conference on sunday which was a follow-up to his poor performance during a briefing on friday on sunday joe biden said this and i want to say again just how difficult this mission is and how dangerous it po the dangers it poses to our troops on the ground the security environment is changing rapidly there are civilians crowded at the airport although we’ve cleared thousands of them we know that terrorists may seek to exploit the situation and target innocent afghans or american troops target innocent afghans or american troops oh there’s also the american civilians there too they are in danger as well now during his comments biden also added this the evacuation of thousands of people from kambal is going to be hard and painful no matter when it started when we began it would have been true if we had started a month ago or a month from now there is no way to evacuate this many people without pain and loss of heartbreaking images you see on television but we have a long way to go and a lot could still go wrong a lot could still go wrong taliban leaders are calling the shots and joe biden is holding straw man press conferences and saying a lot could still go wrong enough is enough folks during the press conference biden made a strong mention of america’s service men and women who are fighting bravely even pounded his finger on the podium no one is criticizing america’s forces biden was also asked directly about his failure to lead and handle this withdrawal phase instead of addressing the question biden talked about the need to get out of afghanistan again no one is really questioning that at this time the failure is in how it is being done and biden won’t even address a question during friday’s press briefing biden said americans weren’t being harmed he was corrected about an hour later by the pentagon biden also said that al qaeda was gone from afghanistan again he was corrected by the pentagon on sunday biden was asked about a new poll which has some stunning results new poll out today shows americans wanted to withdraw from afghanistan but they disapprove of the way you’ve handled it poll also found it based in part and what’s transpired in the last week a majority of americans and forgive me i’m just the messenger no longer consider you to be competent focused or effective in the job i haven’t seen that poll it’s out there from cbs this morning competent focused or effective the majority of those who responded felt that biden can’t do the job and in response all he did was talk about that it was time to leave afghanistan the reporter even pointed out that in the poll americans agree with that the problem is biden’s failure to do that properly to do his job properly and his response completely ignored that subject all right so next let’s talk about some other media reaction but first if you’re new to the show or haven’t subscribed yet regardless of platform just search on my name hit that subscribe button make sure notifications are turned on that way you can follow the show and help us grow okay so you know things are bad when the liberal media are forced to actually report the news they want nothing more than to prop up joe biden but comments and action from biden and his entire administration have put the liberal media into a corner with a disaster this bad even some on the left field they need to cover it a perfect example was the reporter asking biden about the poll results but there’s more here’s chris wallace from fox news in addition to the question of the security and the ease of americans getting to the airport the president on friday said a few other things that were flat wrong mr secretary here he is on the threat from al qaeda what interest do we have in afghanistan at this point with al qaeda gone but a u.n report this summer says that al qaeda is present in 15 of the 34 provinces of afghanistan and general milley said this summer that if the taliban fell that he was rather took over kabul that he was going to have to upgrade the terror threat from al qaeda president what the president said just wasn’t true biden says al qaeda is no threat by officials say that the terror threat will have to go up because of al-qaeda in afghanistan and the u.s withdrawal a direct contradiction to what biden said then there’s this from cnn well kate we’ve been at the airport now for 12 hours and on the airfield for eight hours and during the last eight hours the time that we’ve been waiting here we have not seen a single us flight evacuate people we saw one u.s flight takeoff about half an hour to an hour ago but it was filled with u.s servicemen and women the people who have been sitting on the tarmac for the last 10 hours have not been able to get on a flight so what’s really going on it’s hard to know with biden calling the shots and then there’s cbs news which released the poll that the reporter asked about in the briefing since biden said he didn’t know about the poll cbs’s beau ericsson tweeted this dear white house staff please share the below polling to potus he said he had not seen it yet and that poll shows some incredible results as a reporter mentioned the american people do not feel that joe biden is competent focused or effective 67 of those polled do not believe biden has a clear plan for evacuating civilians 67 percent and then i found this interesting 63 percent of respondents approve of the us withdrawing forces from afghanistan they don’t think biden can handle the job but 63 percent approve of the u.s leaving then in another question 60 percent of respondents feel that with the taliban in control which happened because the u.s is leaving the terrorism threat in the u.s will increase so the vast majority want the us out and the vast majority think the taliban control will increase the terrorism threat but by removing u.s forces it’s what gave the taliban the chance to take control just something to think about the main point is that cbs news actually went on twitter to remind biden about the current state of public opinion will the media continue this trend let me know in the comments okay so next let’s talk about larry elder and what is going on in california in case you missed our saturday live stream i just want to review this story because the current media coverage of joe biden should not be taken as some kind of change of heart the media can’t stand conservatives and they will do everything they can to tear us down case in point is larry elder he’s currently the leading candidate in the effort to recall california governor gavin newsom the polls are not looking good for newsome right now and that means the entire radical left machine will be working overtime to prop up newsom and attack his opponents especially elder but in case you think you’ve seen it all from the radical left the los angeles times has sunk to a new low with its latest attack and here’s the story a los angeles times columnist called conservative talk show host and california gubernatorial candidate larry elder the black face of white supremacy in the title of her op-ed published friday larry elder smiled the smug smile of a black conservative who could very well be liberal california’s next governor erica smith began her op-ed she then described a speaking event elder attended in orange county where he called rising crime a phony narrative i won’t lie smith wrote in response to elder’s statement few things infuriate me more than watching a black person use willful blindness and cherry-picked facts to make overly simplistic arguments that whitewash the complex problems that come along with being black in america now if you read her column she basically states quite clearly why she’s writing it the polls show newsom could lose the recall election and the leading candidate to replace him is elder thus she just had to write a column attacking elder and when a radical leftist goes on the attack nothing is off limits the black face of white supremacy it’s outrageous and here’s more elder opposes every single public policy idea that’s supported by black people to help black people smith wrote and repeatedly called elder smug throughout the op-ed smith also claimed elder does not believe systemic racism exists then criticized elder for sharing statistics that black people are more likely to kill each other rather than root out racial bias in policing by requiring more transparency and accountability from officers according to the left if you are black you can only think one way you can only act one way the fact that larry elder is a conservative is like a vampire being doused with holy water the leftist just goes into a painful freak out but as i said we knew this would come if newsom had clear sailing then people like elder would just be ignored but the left now feel that the threat is real and they are on the attack the recall election is neck and neck but the trend is moving against newsome the election is september 14th and we’ll see what happens okay so next here’s an update on what’s going on at the border and it paints a situation that needs to be turned around immediately over 200 000 illegal border crossings occurred last month over two hundred thousand and there is no end in sight but you know what might be coming to an end the careers of border patrol agents these men and women are overworked understaffed and morale is sinking to an all-time low as the washington examiner reports along a massive stretch of the border in texas very few agents are actually around to patrol it and here’s the story 12 border patrol agents are the only federal law enforcement officers present along a 245-mile stretch of the u.s mexico border surrounding del rio texas it’s the lowest ever number of agents on duty in the area even as more migrants illegally cross here now than ever before the surge of illegal immigration is taking a significant toll because it has kept agents from carrying out their national security mission agents say they are physically drained and struggling to see beyond the crisis 12 agents for 245 miles how are we supposed to stop anyone with resources like that not that the biden administration wants to stop anyone i can’t imagine what it must be like to be in law enforcement when laws aren’t being enforced when you are told that if you catch someone you just release him later and here’s more morale is in the toilet said john anfinsen a spokesman for the border patrol’s union morale is low because agents aren’t allowed to do their job if our job is to be out patrolling the border in between the ports of entry and actively searching for people who have crossed illegally but were not allowed to go do that job it basically creates this defeated feeling in everyone morale is tanking fast this can be seen in the simple statements made by agents but even more importantly it can be seen in increasing processing times agents are just flat tired and we are seeing and hearing it a former senior official at u.s customs and border protection the federal agency that oversees the border patrol wrote in an email this is just incredible and the story goes on to point out the reality of the situation under the biden administration up to half of the agents in texas have been pulled from the border to process people in custody the story points out that the situation that border patrol agents have faced over this last six months is the highest level of illegal immigration that the us has seen since 2000 when former president bill clinton was in office i feel for these men and women and it shows how desperately we need a new president someone who’s focused on actually protecting america and putting america first any ideas let me know in the comments all right friends that’s
