welcome back to yet another episode of watching the watchers live my name is robert grueler i am a criminal defense attorney here at the r r 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 we’ve got a lot to get to a lot of afghanistan news going on president biden spoke this afternoon but we’re going to take a look at what the rest of his administration had to say today because we had cia director william burns met over with the taliban we’ve got jen saki three or four different clips from her today she was out there she gave a press briefing and it was an interesting one she had some interesting language that she was using with with the press corps and so we’re going to check in there representative adam schiff democrat from california came out and also came out of an intelligence briefing and said well we may not get everybody out of there by august 31st so we’re going to check in with him and see what he has to say but a lot of afghanistan news will spend some time there then we’re going to change gears in the second segment we’re going to talk about what’s going on in california in particular los angeles because they just came out one of the biggest cities in the entire country and they are now mandating vaccines close almost very very close this is on mayor garcetti’s desk and so they’re going to mandate vaccines for all city employees la one of the biggest cities in the country said this in season one of kovid it starts in new york and then it sort of goes to the other coast and then it percolates out everywhere else around the country after that and so la is about to fall as well firefighter named christian granucci 31 year veteran unhappy about this he’s been a firefighter for 31 years and now that l.a is going to be mandating vaccines he’s got some things to say about it so we’re going to hear from him and then in our last segment very surprisingly michael avenatti got a mistrial i thought that we were going to never talk about that guy again and here he is he has a a chance to live another day meaning that he has an opportunity to be re-prosecuted and go through the whole thing again if the u.s attorney’s office decides they want to do that gonna guess they do so we’re gonna take a look at that surprise mistrial happened today we’re going to go through his motion and see what the court had to say about that quick reminder it is a little bit of a short show because it is tuesday we got to jump over into the next episode after about 5 30 here but we’re going to have a lot of fun in the meantime so if you want to be a part of the show the place to do that is over at watchingthewatchers.locals.com there’s a live chat taking place over there we’ve got radase we

educational legal show and so if we’re going to be talking about vaccines or any medical misinformation or anything like that this is not a medical show right this is a we got to be careful that we don’t talk about any medical misinformation here and so just that quick little disclaimer one more reminder before we jump into the news of the day i want to just quickly point out that if you’re looking for the clips of the show they’re over on a new channel this is what it looks like robert ruler esq clips so if you don’t ever go and watch the individual segments that we clip out you don’t have to do a thing but if you are looking for those the link is down in the description below along with some other channels so all right enough of that let’s get into the news of the day afghanistan looks like we’re actually leaving this breakup is official no going back no i’m sorry i was just thinking about you uh good morning just thinking about you none of that afghanistan looks like it’s going to be over joe biden is holding true staying fast to the august 31 withdrawal deadline in part because that’s the deadline he set also in part because that’s the deadline the taliban set they said uh that’s our red line we talked about that on the show yesterday saying specifically that uh they don’t they don’t want one one additional troop there after august 31st calling it an occupation saying that we don’t need this at all and so the taliban is now really encouraging the us to get out of the country quickly on august 31st and the us because of their incompetence has suddenly botched this to such a degree that they really have no leverage they have no cards there’s nothing to even negotiate because the taliban presumably has a thousands of american hostages that are uh in their grasp and so we’ve got to dig into this story right now there’s a lot of questions still surrounding this august 31st deadline we’ve got just a handful of days less than a week until that deadline comes up and so many people in the media many elected officials many american citizens like you and me many non-american citizens many uh citizens from all over the world are asking what happens on september 1. what happens when august 31st comes and goes and uh they’re still americans who are trapped or stranded to use gensake’s word over there in afghanistan what do we do about that so the bide administration you know very very forthright planning for every single contingency they sent over cia director william burns he went and had a secret meeting in kabul with taliban leader abdul ghani this was posted six hours ago from the washington post says cia director held a secret meeting on monday in kabul with the de facto leader this was the highest level face-to-face encounter between the two sides since they took over the capital u.s officials with the matter spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss this diplomacy britain france other u.s allies they’re telling everybody that more time is needed to evacuate their personnel taliban said well if if you cross august 31st that’s going to be a red line for us and it’s going to trigger unspecified quote consequences now you juxtapose that with some of what we talked about yesterday we heard from jake sullivan nsa came out and said well we have a real persistent ongoing threat from isis and the u.s embassy specifically said don’t come to the airport unless you get clear notification from the us government that it is safe and appropriate to do so sort of begging the question or speculating that people are you know corralling around the airport like we’ve seen in the video footage creating these huge crowds and that makes it a very prime target if you’re going to have a bunch of people huddled into a a very tight space you set off an ied and then you have mass destruction so the us government is encouraging american citizens be extra careful don’t go don’t call us we’ll call you and then you can come to the airport so uh cia over there negotiating with the taliban see if they can work out an extension not looking like that’s going to happen mitch mcconnell earlier was saying well just ignore it mitch mcconnell of course is the republican senate leader he came out on tuesday and said well this is a lot worse than saigon he says the president needs to just forget about the august 31st deadline extend the deadline go outside the perimeter make sure every single american who wants to leave is able to get out with our assistance and our afghan allies said that on fox taliban should not be allowed he says to tell us how long we are there to get our personnel out that’s our decision not there says mcconnell which is a very nice concept when you’re in a position of strength when you have power and you have more cards in your hand you get to play those cards and you get to sort of set the terms but that’s not what happened here the united states government through the biden administration through the military intelligence community whatever they all created a situation where the u.s has no leverage the u.s has basically said this is our position you have all of our equipment and citizens and allies and you’re going to have that for the foreseeable future so this is now something that the u.s government sort of has to fix right they’re kind of responsible for it i just saw a super chat come on in here from our good friend viva fry over there montreal litigator turned youtuber also running for office and vivo we need to get you on the show my friend because i want to talk about your campaign if you’re not following viva he just threw in a super chat over there says can’t stick around we’ll watch the rerun when i hit the treadmill good to be able to super chat though that’s right it is very nice to have that back and that’s from viva so make sure you go check out his channel viva fried click it it’ll take you right over there and it is also a good place to be over on locals it’s vevabarnslaw.locals.com if i’m not mistaken there are compadres over there on locals and so viva is doing very good work and he’s running for office and so we’re going to have to connect and make sure that we promote that campaign because we need more good people running for office thank you for that viva and so viva obviously is you know following the afghanistan news as well mitch mcconnell says got to stay there but what leverage do you have because if you we have no military base over there not going to have an airport soon don’t have much equipment don’t have access to other american citizens over there so that’s all a little bit problematic isn’t it so mitch mcconnell it’s a nice thought it’s a nice idea but that’s an old america that’s not the current america anymore you’re remembering back 20 years ago this doesn’t exist now so biden came out and said well we’re going to pull out i know that the lawmakers are complaining but we’re still leaving said he’s going to stick with his deadline next week for completing the u.s led evacuation from afghanistan administration officials said on tuesday the decision reflects a growing fear of extremist attacks at the kabul airport talked about that isis might be targeting the crowds that are corralling over there taliban spokesman speaking prior to the word of biden’s decision said anew that the militant group would oppose any extension of the august 31 deadline it has allowed airlift to continue without major interference yeah that’s nice they have allowed that right there’s i think one strip on that kabul airport and so if the taliban want to take that out it’s not really complicated to do that they have control of the whole vicinity the us government is basically emasculated at this point so we’ll see what happens now a lot of clips here from jen saki over at the white house jen saki is here today she is very very confusing because yesterday she was telling us that the word stranded was very offensive and then today we’re going to hear that well maybe some americans are going to be stranded i’m sorry about that so it we’re sort of getting a lot of chaotic responses from the white house probably in part part you know almost strategic to some degree you just go out there you do these media blitzes you present multiple different angles of the same thing and everybody goes well you said this the dod said that the nsa said that the secretary of state uh joe biden came out and said something that is disconnected from all of them so uh what what is going on and a lot of people are scratching their heads as are you and i so here is gen saki now the conversation of course as we’re encroaching approaching the august 31st deadline is well you know you think about this sort of strategically you’ve got these these crowds these scenes that look like they’re from a zombie movie sort of swarming over the airport and now we’ve got a situation where that needs to be maintained while the last american aircraft and citizens are airlifted out of there so are they going to be evacuating on an airplane with more afghanis falling off of the landing gear again i mean how do you secure the airport from the encroaching literal hordes of people trying to flee taliban to tyranny there’s no afghanistan army to secure the airport there’s no real you know american presence there because we got to pick up all the american men and women as well so i guess i’m not a military expert but it sounds like it might be a little bit problematic so a lot of people are having this conversation saying wait so so gen saki from the white house it sounds like what you’re saying is we’re going to be cooperating with the taliban the same people we’ve been fighting for 20 years over there now we’re going to just be like hey can you guys just make sure that you keep the afghanis away from us while we evacuate while we just put up the landing gear and get out of here and she’s kind of saying yeah that’s exactly what we’re talking about that’s the white house strategy here she is and that completion of the mission by august 31st depends on continued coordination with the taliban including continued access for evacuees to the airport and so it’s like you know so they they need the taliban to continue to cooperate with the us i mean basically this is really going according to however the taliban tells us it’s going because they control the airspace and they’re going to control it indefinitely the white house is now acknowledging that yeah we’re going to have to cooperate with them it’s not going anywhere so we’ll see where that goes now here’s another clip from saki now again the media is really trying to dig in on her and try to find out what the deadline is and what do we do about this deadline and they’ve been very coy about this for a long time we talked about this a lot yesterday trying to gauge what the total number of americans left in the country are a lot of people in the media trying to figure that out as well but nobody will give any answers about that which is problematic because if you knew the total number let’s say that there were 10 000 people left you’ve got six days left to get them out okay you can do some simple math on that and come up with an equation and then pace it out and then make sure that you get everybody but they’ve been very reticent to do that they don’t want you to know what that total number is because then you have a scoreboard if you come out at the end of this evacuation you can say we’re counting all the airplanes that landed here in the united states we’re doing a debrief we can tell you how many u.s citizens that came across but that doesn’t match the total number that’s still over there and so they’ve been very coy about this jake sullivan oxford graduate came out and said well it’s not our fault americans come and they don’t register and americans leave and they don’t tell us they left and also they could have left afghanistan a long time ago and they didn’t so it’s kind of their fault anyways isn’t it and that’s the bide administration so here is jen saki now somebody’s asking her specifically about this if you have to adjust the timeline how long are we talking and what are we going to do about it here’s jen if you do have to adjust the timeline how long are you talking about i’m not going to get ahead of any contingency plans that are drawn up by the state department and the defense department as you all know uh the president has been meeting uh and being and attended and participated in briefings with his national security team once a day sometimes twice a day is in constant and regular contact and i expect we’ll get some updates in short order and when do you need to start pulling troops out of the kabul airport to make to meet the oxford 31 when it’s a great question steve i just don’t want to get into operational details that are under the purview of the department of defense which is uh correct it’s a total punt right jen we’re leaving in like seven days it’s a it’s sort of everybody’s purview now don’t you think good lord it’s not like you have uh several months to plan this oh sorry media we don’t want to tell you about our detailed military planning you got to be out of there in seven days jen so you might want to give some information about how you intend to do that because there’s a a lot of people here who have some problems with how this is all going now jen saki yesterday also was very upset with fox news’s ducey who was in the the press briefing room and said uh something like this said jen you know kind of seems problematic to many americans that you’re just going to pick up and leave on this august 31st deadline stranding americans over there and our afghan allies the people who are part of the war effort for the last 20 years who have built their entire lives in afghanistan who grew up who have 15 16 year old kids who only know a secure afghanistan under the purview of the united states and so all of those people all of those lives that have been built over this last generation they’re all going to be stranded and jen says no no they’re not stranded now i wanted to pay close attention this is a clip from yesterday but just put these two side by side we’re going to play this one first and then jen comes out here today and it’s sort of like yeah well we are actually going to strand people so here is jen in uh moral morally indignant about what’s going on here yesterday about that word stranded criticism is not of leaving afghanistan it’s the way that he has ordered it to happen by pulling the troops before getting these americans who are now stranded does he have a sense of that first of all i think it’s irresponsible to say americans are stranded they are not we are committed to bringing americans who want to come home home we are in touch with them via phone via text via email via any way that we can possibly reach americans to get them home if they want to return home there are no americans stranded is the white house’s official position on what’s happening in afghanistan i’m just calling you out for saying that we are stranding americans in afghanistan when i said when we have been very clear that we are not leaving americans who want to return home we are going to bring them home and i think that’s important for the american public to hear and understand okay all right so that’s jen getting a little bit feisty over here and i’m looking at the youtube chat zulu is very excited about that says oh my god the things i would do with jen [Laughter] love it zulu like what ask her uh questions about complex foreign policy issues and see how she responds i like that that that’s fun you know but that it’s a good comment all right so let’s take a look now that was yesterday jen comes out excuse me ducey i’m very angry at you don’t you use that stranded word with me young man it is offensive we are doing everything we can to get americans out of the country including hello texting emailing phone calls they’re just not responding to us i don’t know why because maybe they’re in a war zone in afghanistan in a third world country with uh you know no resources infrastructure or crumbling nation maybe they’re not able to get your messages there jen and so i guess you can just keep on calling you only have six seven more days to do it and so that’ll all be taken care of all right so that’s jen saki uh who is not stranding anybody did you hear that not stranding anybody and she’s offended she’s very upset about it and so let’s see what she has to say about this today when america leaves i guess this is this a lot changed since yesterday here she is um say after the withdrawal it’s done you know it’s prepared it’s done everyone’s out if one u.s citizen was suddenly discovered you know saying hey i really want to get out and i’m stuck who knows where somewhere in afghanistan or in kabul he’s got any problem would this trigger a diplomatic military or hands-on deck type thing to get that person out whatever the date our commitment continues to be to u.s citizens if they want to leave we will help get them out again we expect there could be some but i don’t i’m not going to get into it further there could be some people stranded is what she said he says okay so listen if there’s one person one person that is there and they want to come home you keep saying this line if an american wants to come home they’re going to come home it’s like what obama said if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor that wasn’t so accurate was it it was a nice little pithy little phrase if you had some good cadence if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor kind of a good alliteration if you’re an american if you want to come home you’re going to come home it’s the same thing and we know that the first time that they tried to cram that down our throats from a very similar administration didn’t work out so well and the same thing is happening here with jen if you want to come home you can come home but what about on september 1st 2nd 3rd october november december how about in 2022 what about that and she says well i i guess there’s some people who are yeah who who yeah who just may not may not come over here which is the same definition as the word stranded was offered by ducey yesterday and she wasn’t happy with that so very interesting little flip yesterday we’re not stranding anybody today yeah we actually expect that some people could in fact be stranded so uh mixed messages from the white house now if you had any doubt that they’re gonna get this taken care of by august 31st uh well let me confirm your doubts they’re not going to get it done by august 31st here is a little adam schiff over here from congress now he came out walking down these capital steps i think that might be kenzinger crying kinzinger back there with that woman adjusting his tie doing his like little what is that pose is that the captain jack morgan pose you know the pose and he’s congress people are the weirdest so adam schiff walks out they have this intelligence briefing and he walks down and he says i’m available to talk to you now media and apparently they were there and they were getting brief from all of the intelligence that apparently we have somewhere in the u.s government still i don’t know what it what it is but they had a briefing with some intelligent people i guess and he came out and he said we just got an update about what’s going on in afghanistan and i want to share some things with you and i’m now available for questions some reporter asks him so hey do you think we’re going to be able to get everybody out of there you know americans out of there by august 31st here is what schiff had to say do you think that it’s possible for the evacuation to finish up before august 31st i think it’s possible but i think it’s uh very unlikely yeah there um given the number of americans who still need to be evacuated the number of sivs the number of others who are members of the the afghan press uh civil society leaders women leaders um it’s hard for me to imagine all of that can be accomplished between now and the end of the month all right so uh it’s it’s unlikely right and so the admit this is actually the first the first uh i think congress person that i heard from today that got a direct briefing from the intelligence people so remember there’s a couple different things going on here you do have the intelligence community which are trying to save face they’re all saying no we told joe i mean we had uh cables and memos and we were confirming that the afghan government was crumbling and that they were not going to be sufficient to secure the country and joe biden and his team are sending out all of their people to sort of rebut that to say no well we’re leaving and you’ll notice that the fingers are starting to point all multiple different directions and the white house is saying well look the general consensus was and so we talk a lot about this in our law firm as a to b communication a says something to b and b needs to confirm that back to a in order to really clear up lines of communication so it’d be like ordering you know something for lunch i’d like a turkey sandwich with lettuce and so you give that order to somebody and they and they say let me confirm that for you you’d like a turkey sandwich with lettuce and cucumbers that’s not what i said i said i want a turkey sandwich with lettuce oh you want a turkey sandwich with lettuce yes a to b communication that way you can confirm that you have very clear and concise communication it’s important in all relationships also important in government if the intelligence community is going to communicate an idea to joe biden to say hey joe if you leave the country in this manner it’s going to be a catastrophe for you and joe biden says so what you’re saying is everything’s going to be perfect if we leave right and the intelligence community must have said yeah that’s exactly what we said or the white house just didn’t confirm that they did no no be back to a communication and so now the white house is sort of saying well look the general consensus was this or we get a lot of cables and so we our conclusion was x y and z the intelligence community is saying it’s the opposite the u.s allies are confirming differently now we have adam schiff that is getting a direct report from the intelligence people and so he’s responding saying look it’s we’re not getting everybody out of there by august 31st what are you nuts the white house is not saying whether they’re going to be able to do that and they’re equivocating about what happens if they don’t get it done past august 31st and so i think you can come to the consensus that the white house is hiding the ball the evidence here seems to show that it’s not going to get out americans are all not going to be out of there by august 31st if it was possible i think the white house would be unequivocal about it yeah we’re going to get it done no problem but they are not that’s why they can’t be definitive now it is things are getting even more complicated because isis is now back in the fray we’re going to see season two of isis we’re in season two of kovid and people aren’t scared to death enough already so they need to introduce a new evil enemy again and isis is going to be back out to play so jen is here talking about that a little bit from the press briefing is there any concern that maybe trying to reach this deadline and get everybody out uh mistakes are being made now that there is a report that at least one of the afghans evacuated to cutter has suspected isis ties well first i would say we have a stringent vetting process which includes background checks before any individual comes to the united states so i can’t speak to one individual but i can tell you and confirm for you that we take the vetting of any individual who comes to the united states and and comes out incredibly seriously um and it’s an extensive process uh i would say that this is now on track peter to be the largest airlift in u.s history uh so and that is uh bringing american citizens out it is bringing our afghan partners out it is bringing allies out uh so no i would not say that is anything but a success okay wow okay nothing but a success from uh from jan saki these people are so delusional it’s actually it’s actually amazing it’s pretty impressive that she’s able to come out here every day and just like literally say things that aren’t real she’s telling us this is the biggest airlift in history it’s pretty dang successful and you’re going yeah but you caused the problem in the first place oh you’re doing a great job yeah i mean you wrecked the whole environment but now you’re you’re really cleaning it up very quickly so pat yourselves on the back well done jen you’re right good job and i know that after these press briefings you probably go back there with secretary of state anthony blinken and it’s very emotional and so you just want to pat each other on the back and just sing kumbaya about how great a job you’re doing even though it’s not going so well so she’s very appreciative of the fact that that’s the biggest airlift in history they’re going to get everybody out of there but not really it’s nothing but a success so we’ll see how that shows up in the poll numbers are they’re not doing so good uh the media very very unhappy about this cnn they’re saying that the troops have already started to leave started today written by cnn’s orin lieberman said first u.s troops have already started leaving afghanistan this is the final week of the efforts at this point only a few hundred quote troops have left out of the total 5 800 there in kabul’s airport the evacuation mission remains the focus we have a quote here it says so far the reduction does not affect the mission said one of the officials said that the decision can be based on a few factors including the number of gates open at the airport the number of people coming through and more if you can have a smaller mission set and still conduct the mission then you can reduce your footprint and reduce your risk so again it’s sort of you know who’s the last person out the door they got to turn the lights out and it’s not real good situation there nbc news is saying that our the usual suspects are very unhappy the war is ending fury and disgust over at the cia the pentagon and in congress because thousands of afghans are going to be left behind with president joe biden going to be sticking to august 31 deadline coming clear that thousands of afghans who help the us are not going to be evacuated scenario that has engendered deep frustration in the u.s national security agencies said a former u.s intelligence official of course this person declined to be quoted by name which is usually just you know say it use your name if you want he said he grew nauseated and he considered how many afghan allies would be left behind said people are furious and disgusted at the cia officers feel a real sense of obligation a moral obligation and a personal obligation to the afghans they supported said former cia director john brennan who’s an idiot on nbc national news security consultant yeah he’s the same guy who said that libertarians and people who are you know anti-government are terrorists and they’re domestic terrorists that need to be monitored and stuff so that guy doesn’t know anything other than big military big law enforcement wants totalitarian control over basically every facet of everything and so it doesn’t surprise me for a minute that he is upset that we’re no longer in afghanistan that’s actually a very good reason to make sure we leave afghanistan if john brennan is somebody who says that the cia is upset about us leaving afghanistan good reason to get out of there well done there joe biden so you can split that a couple different ways right joe biden is really sticking to his decision to leave which is commendable now the question of course is how do you weigh that against the final result right the scores is not the game’s not over yet it’s about to be over here real soon and if there are thousands of americans hundreds of americans even tens of americans who were stranded over there that the u.s government left there that’s a huge huge problem and so we’re going to see how the white house continues to juggle that dichotomy let’s take a look at some questions over from watchingthewatchers.locals.com and see who is here chiming in we’ve got a couple here first one in the house is from want to know says where can i buy that night vision or scopes with the bright of lasers or own in the usa not even with an atf stamp that’s discrimination i don’t know where you buy those want to know kareem says do you think that they will end up extending the vaccine passports to that’s over in the second segment so kareem i apologize uh but that i’m gonna read that in the second segment if i can get to it you might want to resubmit it sharon quitney says you say that mcconnell was thinking of america 20 years ago maybe he was thinking of america maybe just one year ago i guess maybe when there was still a backbone in this country we have perry masonry says rob this won’t last forever how much longer until thousands of american citizens are held hostage will this administration do nothing or or it is the only strategy left if you have thousands of american hostages and you control the exit ramp is to make concessions it’s to pay them it’s to negotiate with them it’s to give them seats at the table it’s to make them a legitimate it’s to legitimize the entire taliban as the legitimate government of afghanistan and that’s what joe biden did that’s going to be a legacy that he leaves behind so whether you think that it’s good to leave afghanistan or not he is going to be pinned with that and he’s going to have to you know answer for that at the polls we’ve got thunder 7 says trump pompeo already met with taliban leaders when they negotiated the agreement by marxist regime did not follow the protocols deliberately left behind 85 billion worth of cash and equipment left the u.s citizens behind china now in control of all the military equipment already negotiating to get the mineral rights do you think now rob the dems understand what we’ve known all along the dems are owned by china that was a donald trump version of china i i don’t think it’s just the the democrats thunder seven i think large swaths of the republican party are also owned by china as is a lot of infrastructure here in the united states it’s certainly concerning you know the only real person who had a problem with china was donald trump the only real person in here in our elected leadership let’s say who who had a very strong posture against china was donald trump and what did this country do allegedly didn’t vote for him again yeah right it’s ed says i need help understanding this how did we go from a president with balls the size of texas to an emasculated shadow of a president in biden well i think it’s sort of reflective of much of the the the demographics in this country they’re shifting that direction it says i think what angers me more than anything else is how much of a weenie we look like our alleys allies are looking at us like we are nothing but a joke why ally when with the us when we don’t push back when being pushed yeah it’s it is very it is very kind of shameful in many ways you know if you conducted yourself in like this in your personal life would you be happy with yourself probably not like like just abandon your family or your friends i’m out of here well i don’t like this party anymore i’m leaving yeah but you started the party i know but i still don’t like it and i’m gonna leave well all of this stuff is your responsibility not anymore it’s yours now you get to clean it all up sorry that your whole place is wrecked but i gotta go because i don’t want to be here anymore yeah you wouldn’t have any friends left if you had a life like that want to know says do you think the taliban actually wants all foreign citizens out no i do not i think that they want to stop the escape of foreign citizens and of us citizens uses human shield some things they want to lock them out or lock them down lock the country down yeah i think right now what the taliban sees are thousands of negotiation people negotiation tools right little currency every single person that leaves is one additional person that they can’t use as hostage or as leverage or as a negotiating tactic so as soon as that deadline expires they’re gonna stop the leak they’re gonna keep everybody in there because they know that that gives them more leverage good to see you want to know next up we have sharon whitney says don’t get me wrong i’m all for getting out of afghanistan i’ve been a quagmire from the get the horrible thing about all this is that i’m just certain that innocent lives are going to be lost because of the actions of this regime taliban are not good people certainly not friendly toward anybody especially women who thinks they have any rights at all i don’t think that anybody does it’s just the way that it’s going to go at this moment thank you sharon radasa he says i guess if they can’t make it to the airport in time they really don’t want to leave right yeah it’s probably their fault you know that they couldn’t make it from a one secure facility to the airport in the middle of a war zone and a collapsing uh nation yeah pinkie two says wow we have so much hope right sarcastic comment from pinky we’ve got another one jeremy says jeremy matrida says jen saki always looks like she hates her job i would absolutely hate getting into an argument with her i’m really glad i don’t have kids with her if she was my ex she would probably walk all over me she seems like you know she might be a handful there’s no question about that but zulu is i think into it so that’s okay you know that’s all right we all have our uh our uh you know likes and dislikes in this world that’s okay and i’m sure she’s a very nice woman jen saki i just don’t want to be anywhere near a relationship with her damn i sh she’s here jen saki’s here says damn i should have taken a holiday and avoid the journalists ask the tough question about afghanistan we are not totally going to get americans out of afghanistan because everyone in the administration is brain dead okay let’s see here bummer licket with a nice long comment says i don’t want to sound heartless but regarding the afghan interpreters that help our troops they’re compensated when they’re working for our troops right so please stop with the guilt trip that we let them down so many people in my life help me in big and small ways many occasions i say to myself that one day i will reciprocate that help but i know and you know it’s not possible it’s best if we can help back but the circumstances won’t let us we move on and try to help someone else who needs help we pay it forward help us help you’re not required to repay it it should be given with no strings attached stop with the guilt trip a lot of people are in dire situations that need help too i pray for afghanistan i hope they get through this yeah that’s from bummer licket and i think there’s some truth to that right i mean we’re putting ourselves as people as external observers who are watching all of this in a difficult position because now you have to start measuring lives don’t you an american life versus an afghanistan life versus an afghanistan person who helped the u.s versus an afghanistan man who helped the u.s versus an afghanistan woman and child who did not help the us but who are going to be killed by the right all of these different complexities and so the us government now is in the unenviable position of saying you get to live you get to stay or you get to go you get to stay doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to die but if you’re a former afghan official odds are not looking so good for you which makes it a difficult thing to to to talk about but i think that there is a limiting principle that there is is relevant bummer like liquid we only have tricity flowing or keep the water clean or keep the budget balanced or even win wars can’t even do that anymore so the us government is not in a capacity to help everybody who needs help that’s the that’s the concept here the us government doesn’t have the capacity to go build another foreign nation they’re not good at it didn’t work out how about we stop trying to help everybody and encourage and incentivize people to help themselves and do well in their own countries so that they don’t have to flee the dumpster fires of their lands would be a better way to do it but you see the argument it’s it’s the bleeding heart it’s all we want to help everybody we can we can we can do better we’re human beings and it’s now suddenly every single problem in the world is everybody’s problem in the world and that’s not really realistic it doesn’t work that way if you try to you know create public policy on that foundation it’s not going to work out look what’s happening we got john don’t vote for kenzinger halgren is here says that kenzinger pose is the uh i’m kissing up to the democrats hoping they don’t redistrict me out of a job because i’ve completely lost my mind and i’ve forgotten who i represent and i will lose in the primary to anything including a vegan sprout sandwich stance yeah that’s that’s the stance that i saw too he’s the worst kind of politician and yes he represents my district john i think you should run against him because that guy is one of the worst congress people that i’ve seen in recent history uh the the fakeness in his face during that crate fake crying spree was like laughable it was a it was a f performance you don’t even come back to acting class after that performance it was bad you’re it’s not the right field for you so hopefully he does lose next question we’ve got over here is from ghost gunner we screwed up so badly we can be found can’t we can be in the guinness book of world records for the largest airlift ever oh no that’s funny why are we celebrating guys yeah it’s true jen should be very proud of herself yeah they created such a catastrophe that it’s the biggest airlift that’s ever been conducted paula mk says for some reason biden’s facebook page popped up on my newsfeed saying how wonderful everything is and how america’s back really lifted my spirits to see hundreds of thousands of comments telling him how delusional he is especially people saying how embarrassed they were for voting for him i hope they remember this come 22 and 24. i think they will i think the polls are showing that he’s getting crushed over this as he should pinky two says oh my gosh did she just say that um the border yeah that was from jensaki jensaki says it was the biggest crowd at an inauguration ever so she’s also got some fibs going there we have a couple other ones from nadarb says the reason why they can’t get out all the americans is because the ones still there are the ones staying behind to pay to play isis for the military industrial complex that’s funny yeah so you gotta you gotta make sure that uh you know you leave behind all of the the fake heads and all of the blood and guts and all of that so we make sure the cia is is well cared for while they’re over there uh building up season two of isis we have want to know says did you see the person they flew on the no-fly list and jen said if any americans need help just call the embassy no problem at all uh we got acwac says so jen says that they were doing background checks for those coming over here how well does that work for those coming in from a third world country that has very little internet presence yeah and that’s nice that they’re doing that i guess over airplanes but what about on the southern border and is anybody going to be able to make their way up through that southern border they’re not getting checked at all we have sergeant bob says saki talks about an extensive vetting process for anyone coming to the usa that would seem to also cover people jumping at the border in the south correct jen i don’t think i would buy a used car from her that’s from sergeant bob so we have a difference of opinions here uh from several people in the the chat about gen saki lt13 says go ahead and subtract a day because they are a day ahead that’s right and there’s some questions about what the actual deadline is is it august 31st like 1201 in the morning or do you get august 31st you get that full day and you got to be out at 11 59. it’s a good question because that might be an important a couple plane rides isn’t it we don’t know but we’ll see we’ve got ref ventilator says if that unnamed u.s intelligence officer thinks he’s furious and disgusted i can think of a whole country of bipartisan citizens who can politely show him what fury and disgust really looks like how these people feel safe is beyond me well they’re just part of that that ruling class right there they’re part of the people who get to dictate the terms to the rest of us and they’re protected they’re insulated they know that they’re basically beyond reproach has anybody resigned over this is anybody are there congressional committees being formed after january 6 we had a whole parade of democrats out there oh gosh we need hearings until the end of the world we had statement day after day after day worst thing since 9 11. worst thing since pearl harbor worst thing since vietnam worst thing since the civil war on and on and on and now it’s just oh no it’s fine it’s the biggest airlift in history it’s been a tremendous success and please don’t use the word stranded it’s very offensive so we have another one here from greg marat says to further highlight the incompetence of the bide administration would it be good political and ethical move for someone from the right to privately fund a rescue mission to afghanistan if few americans are left over past the deadline i think it probably would be i think you’re going to see a lot of stories like this there are already people stepping up i think glenn beck has a giant fund to save christians tom cotton has been doing amazing work i’ve been following him on twitter he’s sort of you know bringing people over using congressional resources and so you’re going to continue to see this in the aftermath this is going to be part of the big problem that i was talking about yesterday this sort of death by a thousand cuts yeah they might get the the meat and potatoes of the afghanistan withdrawal over they might have you know shoved all that down their gullets but they’re gonna have to feast on a slow drip over the next three years of horror stories coming out of afghanistan and everybody every time that happens especially if it involves an afghan who is a loyal ally or if it was an american citizen oh every one of those stories for the next 39 months is going to be connected back to joe biden and it’s the same thing they did with donald trump every day more deaths more deaths more tests more deaths every day for joe it’s going to be more deaths more deaths more deaths because the media loves that they love those ratings they love isis they love terrorism they love making sure that the big security apparatus the intelligence community can just can just strip away your liberties and your freedoms and your rights and as long as they’re moving that direction and as long as they can get out there and talk every day on cnn about more fear and more incompetence and more uh more stuff that makes the everyday american just sort of recoil i think the better gives them good ratings and it supports their uh ideology of never ending government power all right what else do we have we have some other questions here got to pick up the pace here i forgot it’s it’s tuesday but like it says does our equipment left in afghanistan does it self-detonate like a safety feature in case it falls in the wrong hands well no i think part of the reason why they didn’t torch the equipment before they left is because they thought the afghanistan people were going to use it they didn’t so it just flipped right over hands the antiques prime says hey anyone else remember how the iran hostage situation was orchestrated by bush in order to get reagan elected over carter so i didn’t know that but uh i wouldn’t wouldn’t surprise me for a minute kareem 165 now says that’s in the los angeles mandates kareem biden confirms the exit so uh vienticus prime says just to juxtapose this whole situation it’s quite obvious that the whole situation in afghanistan was orchestrated as a monetary grift of the american taxpayers money by the military-industrial complex but i wonder how this compares to how people would fare standing up to the native authoritarianism here at home yeah it’s much easier for people to get outraged about what they see overseas because that’s happening to other people it’s happening in other parts of the world but when they look around their own lives and they say well a lot of these things are kind of happening here like limitations on your free speech your property rights who is in control of what happens to your children in the schools all sorts of things are changing here locally and it certainly feels like authoritarianism to me but you’ll notice if you talk to some people about it they just they they want to do the ostrich defense defense which is just sticking your head right in the sand and just saying well you know it’s still pretty good here and it’s it’s necessary it’s just covered you know it’s just temporary and all this stuff is just fleeting so don’t worry about it well we said that 18 months ago with the 15 days to slow the spread and look where we’re at now it’s the slow frog it’s a slow boil of the frog in the pot and it’s not going anywhere uh v bittersweet latest poll has bite at 41 yeah and it’s probably gonna just keep tumbling from there although that’s pretty dang low miss danny says i wonder how many people were really working for the u.s government and u.s citizens seems that it’s so but it’s so so many people yeah it’s it sounds like it’s a lot and the fact that they’re not willing to tell you what the total number is is concerning john for representative in illinois halgren says just two weeks to flatten the evacuation that’s that’s true just two weeks yeah let’s just pick it up perry masonry says rob are we to just accept this failure joe seems not to be up to the job of protecting americans just saying yeah i agree with you i think he’s been checked out for a long time but what can you do about it i think that we’ll we’ll see if if there’s any attempt to 25th amendment him or for him to resign or step down but i’m not so sure we’re going to see much of that we had a super chat from viva earlier thank you for that viva ben dovers here says it’s obvious who is the katherine and who is the pitchers with these dems that’s from bend over that’s a statement right there thank you for that bend over we got penguin man says citizens should demand that buy and reimburse taxpayers for the tech and vehicles that he abandoned you know i was thinking about that in terms of reimbursing the families who lost their loved ones what if all of that money that was stolen all of that all those trillions of dollars that went into i guess propping up a useless government with people who probably got millions of dollars in government contracts spent a ton of money doing lord knows what it’d be very nice wouldn’t it to know where every single one of those dollars went who got it where’d it go what companies have it and did they actually earn it was that legitimately earned why is there not an audit of the military and all of that money that was unlawfully seized and stolen from from american citizens should go right back to the families who lost loved ones that would be justice people would be charged with crimes look if you if you steal some tax money you get charged with crimes for that if you if you sell somebody drugs and you go buy a car with that well what do they do they take that car because you purchased it with illegal earnings but now if it’s a government contract not if it’s the military then it’s all just oh well it’s just gone sorry it’s in somebody’s bank account meanwhile mothers fathers sisters brothers they all have dead relatives as a result of this and there are people who are swimming in their swimming pools living off of the government war money that came from your and i’s pockets all for nothing yeah i think that there should be some repercussions for that that was from penguin man says reimburse the taxpayers eddie oliver is here says nothing about this makes sense i can’t figure out what their motivation is i feel like mugatu in zoolander and i’m taking crazy pills and that’s from eddie oliver yeah you know i don’t know i i don’t know that this is anything that was well orchestrated or nefarious or malevolent or anything like that i i think it probably was just incompetence uh but i you know i don’t know it’s hard to say because it’s sort of it feels like it’s so incompetent that the only way that you could do it this incompetent would be to plan it but i’m not so sure that’s the case all right thank you for that eddie appreciate you being here as always royal wolf is here says in response to the question about night vision gear you can get some at tnvc.com they’ve got everything to make you the bump in the night wow wow that’s nice tnvc i might have to check that out myself uh good to see you royal wolf thanks for that and kareem says is it an issue to ask questions on future topics so it’s it’s not an issue kareem but it’s just it helps me if you keep them in order so when i’m talking about that subject that’s when you should submit the question that makes it easier for me to just go through the questions in order otherwise if you ask a question about the third segment and i’m in the first segment i’m going to get the question in the first segment because i try to get through them all before i move on so i apologize if i wasn’t explaining that appropriately but those were all great questions from watchingthewatchers.locals.com thank you for those very nice super chats came in from kareem royal wolfe eddie oliver penguin man bendover and of course the viva fry who’s over on youtube himself and on locals which is where we’re at so come check us both out over on locals thank you for all of those great questions all right we’ve got a next segment we’ve got to move on and we’re going to be talking about kovan now we’re changing gears talking covid stuff los angeles one of the biggest cities if not the biggest city in the country is now on the verge of mandating vaccinations for all of their city workers we’ve been seeing this sort of spray around the entire country like a series of dominoes just cascading all over us as we just sit here and sort of watch in fear as the government continues to tell you what you can do where you can go who you can see and what now you can put in your body so the la now according to the new york times passed on wednesday a coven 19 vaccine mandate this is from the city council 60 000 city workers including police officers and firefighters are now going to be mandated to get the vaccine does not include an option for regular testing so the grip of these tyrants are just slowly slowly increasing every single day you see how that works and now la is going to be doing it in other cities you’ve seen these exceptions religious exception medical exception any other just i don’t want to take it exception they provide for regular testing la doesn’t say that no more regular testing exclusions here other major cities states companies healthcare systems and the federal government have passed different vax rules but many including new york allow people to skip the shots as long as they’re regularly tested la though and one recently announced for seattle removes that option la will only allow medical or religious exemptions so get it or don’t and if you look at some of the religious exemptions or some of the medical exemptions what you’ll see specifically for the religious exemptions are a lot of a lot of ways to make sure that you don’t get that exemption one of the ways they do that is they say well what’s your religious exemption and you say well it’s against my religion to take put anything in my body and they’ll say well have you ever put anything in your body have you had any surgeries do you take over-the-counter medicine do you do you have prescription medication do you are you on blood pressure medication are you on antidepressants they ask you all of those questions so that they can identify whether or not it’s a genuine religious belief because if you say well i yeah i mean i had a surgery and they gave me some um some medication to make sure i go under well certainly sounds like you took something in your body doesn’t it so well since you did that why don’t you just take this kova jab on top of it and so these forms are looking to be very cumbersome and they’re very you know very full so that they can find a way to make sure that you don’t get the exemption the vaccine mandate ordinance out of la it still needs to be signed by the mayor in order to become law but press secretary said on thursday that the mayor would sign it soon once it’s signed city employees are going to have until october 19th to be completely vaccinated against the virus this has completely inoculated against the virus but that’s not actually accurate right we need to do everything in our power said garcetti to protect the health and the safety of those who keep our city running and you notice it said city firefighters we’re going to get there said angelinos rely on the services they provide every day like for example putting out fires garcetti said in a statement this requirement is the surest way to achieve that so he says that what he wants to do is mandate that their employees get the vaccines so that they can continue to provide services in order to keep our city running see how that works get the jab so that you can continue to work so that the city can continue to function the ordinance does not yet specify penalties for workers who don’t comply said the city was negotiating with many different unions that represent the workers but said that she hoped it would not involve the possibility of firing workers who do not comply so the unions are up in arms over this because their employees don’t want to get them right they don’t want to get the vaccinations and so they have a lot of bargaining power cities are just steamrolling over the unions anyways and saying well we don’t care right and a lot of these are between different democrats you have these warring democratic factions the pro-vaxxers garcettis who want the jab in everybody’s arm you’ve got the unions who are big big democratic entities who fund all of the liberals who are now saying yeah but our our people don’t necessarily want those and so you’ve got this contradiction this this uh problem between these two entities and we’ll see where it goes now i talked about this yesterday on the show saying that i read a headline that there was uh we’re starting to see what happens when you start to weaponize and politicize economics when you politicize a private enterprise right in in this case or even public enterprise we’re talking about doctors we’re talking about police firefighters nurses surgeons all of these different people if they’re going to start getting involved in providing services based on political ideology well we’re gonna see some very interesting things happen in this country what if you go to a restaurant and they say uh well did you vote for uh trump you say well i guess i did well then i’m not serving you okay what if you go to uh you know get your tires changed and they have and they say well at this tire shop it’s only libertarians here we only p you know we don’t believe in them in the us government or whatever and so every single uh entity that you visit now is politicized and weaponized which is where this is going we’ve already seen this with the nba the nfl what used to be sort of a nice sunday of watching sports is now this woke politicized you know nonsense that nobody watches anymore and so we’re seeing that happen we saw this yesterday out of florida we’ve got south florida hospitals they staged a symbolic walkout yesterday i didn’t see it was symbolic i just heard it was a walkout and so they’re saying that that you know basically we’re not look the the headline that i saw yesterday was that they’re not going to treat people who are unvaccinated it’s a symbolic walkout you know we’re walking out and we’re not going to treat the unvaxxed they wanted to draw attention to the surge in unvaccinated patients so you’ve got these knuckleheads out here who are just saying okay right basically we’re doctors you know the implied threat there is we’re only going to treat people who get the vacs and so i said okay that’s fine you know let him do that because you’re going to see people going the other direction you’re going to see firefighters and police officers and construction workers and welders and people who dig the ditches and serve the food and grow the food who don’t want to play this woke game who don’t want to go out here and do these stupid symbolic spectacles where they get everybody together in their you know paper masks and they go outside and they do this virtue signaling in front of everybody look how virtuous we are look at our morality we’re going to stand here and hold our hand side to side in our stupid white coats uh and and you know play doctor or whatever with our masks on and we’re gonna go out there and do this symbolic thing in front of the news with this dumb podium and we’re gonna scold everybody for not getting the shot and they’re gonna pat themselves on the back and they’re all going to go back in there and say wow we’re doing a great job they probably have a facebook group and group text messages and they’re probably really thrilled about their their moral stand okay good for them but if they’re going to do it it’s going to go both ways if these doctors are going to go out there and make implied threats that they’re not going to come and save your son or daughter because they made a medical decision between them and their doctor to not get the vaccine well two can play it at that game and it’s going to start it’s already starting right now i want to introduce you to this guy his name is christian granucci this is a los angeles fire department captain captain of the lafd the los angeles fire department he’s not happy about the vaccination vaccine requirement and this is prompting an internal investigation so this guy spoke out about it he’s wearing an la fire department hat and t-shirt he glares into the camera we’re going to see this next and he says i’m done being silent about this matter it’s a rare rare public outburst by a member of the fire department against the covid requirement that is coming out of garcetti’s office granucci accused the fire union of being quote in lockstep with total tyranny said that the firefighters have retained an attorney called him a shark he says this is about this is not about being vaccinated versus unvaccinated he says this is about freedom of choice i want to introduce you to this guy his name is christian granucci and this is just probably one in in in a long series of other dominoes that we’re going to see this is a man who is 31 years as a firefighter saving lives who is now being mandated to do something he doesn’t want to do let’s see what he has to say about it my name is christian granucci i’m a captain with the los angeles city fire department i’m a 31 year veteran with this agency and i’m more than likely going to catch total grief from my administration from this but i am done being silent on this matter and so are many of our members and this is regarding the vaccine mandate by the city of los angeles for all city employees we saw this tyranny coming we saw it coming across the pacific and a week and a half ago it landed in honolulu with the honolulu fire department and we watched a passionate plea from captain pelican literally in tears being forced to resign because he chose not to take the vaccine wow all right so you see what’s happening right and he this is a captain 31 years he’s saying that another chief also another captai
