1:35 am
for joining me. camp. thank you jennifer. i want to start with you on this. you know, 2014 to think press. obama was a right and making the prisoner exchange deal. i mean, these are obviously 4 very important figures and the enemy that we were fighting exchange for one soldier who is actually proven deserted his unit. yeah, i mean, anyone in 2014 was screaming. this is a bad idea. you know, the, the intel community and the u. s. military. he did not listen to, meaning obama did not listen to. and now we know our illustrious bo burned all was, you know, court martialed and guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. now he is trying to expunge his record from being dishonorably discharged. like people don't know his name already go metro obama for one second. it's arguably that he is arguably the he broke the law by making this decision before presenting congress with that. well, and that's a question, a lot of us, you know,
1:36 am
when it was happening time, or there was a couple people that were very upset over this robin. do you think president obama realized how important these taliban soldiers were that he was exchanging? and if he didn't, why was not told he knew president obama knew full well how important these people were. and it's to the taliban and the taliban. i've got to disclose here something . i in my capacity as the u. s. army ranger, i had a hand in this situation with both our goal, so i'm intimately familiar with this. there's a lot, but i can't disclose about this. but i, i, i am very, very familiar with this. i have great issue with it. both are just starting his unit, of course, but of course the united states government was going to spare no expense trying to get one of our soldiers home, even though he did deserve his unit and was acting as a lone wolf with the taliban. we couldn't leave our guy over there. it's in the breed of every soldier, every ranger. we're not going to leave anybody behind the bits fighting for us even
1:37 am
if they deserted us. but what it took to get there, scottie makes my sole hurt and fringe, which i think is a lot of the reason why the debate is happening over the last month of how we withdrew. very different probably on the fish or do you have to ask you, what is the difference between 2014 and having such a commitment that we will do whatever it takes, including giving for terrorists, right. the fact that people were fighting, as well as others that we release to get, get mo, compared to now currently where we left a whole group who left hundreds, not only soldiers, but americans behind what had changed in how the military and how the united states government regard to those left in these types of situations. yes. to be clear, we didn't leave any soldiers behind. those are now home. i have footprints that were working on the evacuation. i interviewed one for my podcast just last week. at w w, w dot american discourse dot com,
1:38 am
a lot of information that the people that are there. course, the state department telling us that it's between 100 to 200 people. and some of these people were dual citizens of citizens of afghanistan. some of them have family members there. i still think there's more to the story than we're necessarily getting from the state department. i know that multiple attempts have been made to tell these people to get out and try and get them out. but if they are doing citizens and they're citizens of dentistry and also and will not leave, i'm not so sure what we can do to get them out. i'm just concerned that we're not getting the full story here and that unfortunately something that has happened in history, hence why you probably have that fear. you know, jennifer, that being said this debate regarding giving prisoners i get a timely trial has been going on and i think it's real interesting to time me. even those that were involved in 91120 years ago this week granted, cobra delighted a year are finally getting their days in court. however, does the fact that prisoners that we released or change our were highly involved in the taliban after they left,
1:39 am
that kind of justification for keeping these prisoners locked up rather than releasing them back into the battlefield, where we known in the past several of them went back to fight us soldiers. scotty, islamic extremism is a hell of a drug. you have to keep them locked up. they will always return to the battlefield even though obama said in 2014, he assured us that they would not return to the battlefield. it's actually not true by 2018. the taliban 5 as they used to call them held prominent positions in the exiled taliban. that was in guitar. so they went right back within 4 years, they found their way back to the battlefield. in fact, the newly confirmed minister of information and culture was just an ounce for the taliban. he was just part of the talks in moscow with him, with the binding representative to discuss the withdraw from, from afghanistan. well, and that's the thought that you know, there's a lot of different things going back on as robin, we're talking about the taliban leadership. there's also a one,
1:40 am
a terrorist who are in the u. s. so the idea this is ministration is taking this tone and doing the taliban. a very positive tone, especially now the majority of people are out. you think that's actually reasonable . kenneth talent actually work with us, considering there's some pretty personal vendettas, you know, against the u. s. for maybe i don't know, 15 years being put and get mo you think they're actually legitimately wanting to work with the u. s. l or me a skeptic. scotty. i was a skeptic when our former president met with the taliban and the cap camp. david's last january of 2018. i understand doing it whatever it takes to try and work on relations here and keep our people safe. but i don't trust the tell them at all for their word that it's been proven time and time again that we cannot trust them. so all i can say is that i'm glad that i'm, we're learning now that our soldiers are, has demolished a lot of the appointment that was sent over there and rendered inoperable. that's
1:41 am
news that we just found out, but i'm still concerned about all of the equipment that we had to ask and forces that us now in the hands of the child. that is not okay, but there's really nothing we can do about that. we work training their horses so that they could defend themselves. they just surrendered to the taliban. there really didn't. they didn't really put up any fight. to be honest. i think that's the thing that our intelligence probably warned the president that you could see from the outside there was not going to stand up despite what this person continuously said. but i think that was what even trump even said when he was an office. bad, bad judge, and i think from the top, from the last year ministration. jennifer, why before, let's go. we're talking about these refugees that are coming over. there is a lot of concern about the vetting process and even other foreign leaders have said they're worried about isis. k actually being in these care and other terrorist groups are actually making good on exploring the goodwill of countries towards refugees to use to gain access to the sleeper cells in the west. are you concerned about this vetting process? we did just see this past weekend in germany, and african refugee actually used
1:42 am
a knife and went violent in an area and actually did bad damage and hurt some people. so do you think we're doing a responsibility to national security? the way that we're very nice, the refugees we're bringing in. absolutely there's, there's no way to that all down, especially how fast are doing it, even though some of them are in, you know, 3rd party countries before they come here. it's almost impossible that they don't have papers their, their country just fell to the taliban. i don't know what kind of documents they have, but also with the state department sending out blank visas for a lot of people to fill out, you know, who is who, but also in the muslim faith, they do something called to kia, which is you can lie about anything to, to further advance, you know, mac space. so they're going to lie and they're going to scheme and they're going to get to the united states or other countries that they would like to get to in order to harm us. you cannot believe anything they say, which is unfortunate,
1:43 am
but that's where we are and there is no way of that them or believe them at the time. well, unfortunately, i feel like i've continues to be kind of a slab in the face. all the veterans like yourself, robin, and those that were obviously victims of 911 who were focusing on this week as they continue to make moves like this. thank you so much for having a conversation. now the health care debate has not really been a priority in the united states, mainly because the government already has stepped in and assumed the costs of most expenses related to the testing prevention and the treatment of covert 19. now that sounds like a small taste of what socialized health care would be like have are one country with socialized health care is decided they currently can't afford the bill and have announced a health and social care levy. 1.25 percent increase in the national insurance tax and the present and a separate tax on earned income specifically for health and social care. all begin in 2023, u. k prime minister board johnson says the funding will be used to tackle the national health care system backlog from the pandemic. that's only at 1st and then
1:44 am
it will roll over to pay for new cap on individual contributions to social care. you actually think that tax would go away, never sort of give us a reaction and if the pandemic is going to be raising your taxes, we bring in hello, hello, rewards president the bridge american. ben, thanks for joining us. hillary pleasure to be back with you again. scottie ok, so chance a rick cynic said there's a backlog treatment for over 5000000 people currently in the u. k. give us this picture of what is current health care like the situation u. k. for the individuals both in regards to cobra as well. everything else, people get sick with. you're right, so i'm sure that he's the charge of the extra cup. so he actually, you're right. he said there's a tremendous backlog. now if you want to get any other surgery, anything in the u. k, if you want me surgery for example, it's month to month a month, and in some cases it's years. there's a backlog that why? because they've run out of beds. now the only thing is i would say that's not unique to the u. k. this is across the world, so you can't just say, well it's, it's just the u. k. problem because it is and, and in fact,
1:45 am
as health care goes compared to european countries anyway, you're better off in the u. k than most other countries. it has been better wrong and don't forget the vaccination process over 90 percent of the u. k. public. what they call double jobs compared to the, the rest of the european union. so it's far more efficient than anywhere else in the, in the european union. so it's very well run and it's far more efficient. nevertheless, there is this backlog and that's why they've levied this tax boys. johnson has said he doesn't want to go into more debt in order to from the n h s national health. so how to the british people, how people you can react when their government says, you know, we more money from taxing in the us. they don't take it to well, well they don't, but i'll show you golf poll has said that over 64 percent of the british public is in favor of this tax. why the n h f actually in the u. k. is considered it sort of like in america, we call it pi mother and apple pie. it's very favorably looked upon because it is so very well run and waiting for months for or yeah,
1:46 am
because of what everybody went through the pandemic. and actually, every night, at 7 o'clock in the u. k, people were going outside of the houses and they were banging their pots and pans in recognition of people that were serving. and they, i know people in the u. s. i just tried to start something like that here because people were actually very impressed with how the n h s. obviously went to work with serving the nation during this time. but i would say this, the, you got it very accurate. the people are very supportive. it's the tax also, even though it is a tax scottie and i know you both. you and i are not like pro tax is only it is 1.25 percent, which is not in order. i wouldn't say that. so that's a huge tax. it is going to raise well over 12000000000, and that is what is needed to fund. so i think that it's a small tax relatively also there's been no doubt this has gone through with forest johnson's government. he's not a government that has stood for taxes, he's not a government, the conservative government that has been pro this but his back benches even that was sort of somewhat opposed to this, had passed it. so i think that the british public is for it and it's gone for ok.
1:47 am
how does the business community respond? i saw there's several or step up and said this is going to cost jobs. yeah. you know, i think they said that, but you know what? it's gone through and i don't think it's gonna break them. no, i think they say that right now, but it's not going to be a back breakout. no. okay, well then the other thing that bore strong thinking around. so this is only a tax, mainly the majority of a 50 percent going to come from 14 percent does show that there is an unequal wealth distribution in the u. k. like somewhat, what we see here in the u. s. is always going to be on even it's not, not, in fact actually what some people said is that you're handing this over to the label. get to the labor government. i don't think that you're going to see that. i think of it is 1.25 percent isn't going to break anybody. whereas who said in the us, you know what to what the business has always do businesses always pass on expenses to the consumer. that always happens. but 1.25 percent scotty isn't going to break anybody's back. and so you're not going to find anything drastic. that's going to happen. i think actually a far greater concern in the u. k. right now,
1:48 am
is the supply chain, the semiconductor issue and the closing of manufacturing plant for call manufacturing is far greater of an issue. and the labor shortage is a far greater issue. and the semiconductor issue is far greater of a problem than this 1.25 percent tax. well, there is no doubt that it health care is going to major costs. are governments across the world. is there any other countries right now who you can already see on the rising are going to have to follow that same protocol and raise taxes all because of the health care expenses incurred for the past year and a half? i don't know, john. germany has seen major issues through this and that also because they took a lot of immigrants in so it might follow in germany and you may see the netherlands and maybe also sweden. it was basically the countries that took a lot of immigrants in there, probably the ones that are going to fall next. and i think that's where people have the problem with it. they're going to raise money if it's going to actually come back and help like teachers in the classroom. it's is, are we, are we able to bring in other people that we can afford right now? barely on our own. i think that's a question when you will, and you're going to see a lot of pressure here too. right. and that's, and that's where i think this is kind of showing right now. do you feel like that here in the us, a pandemic has helped or hurt that debate regarding, socialized,
1:49 am
possible in the future more government control of health care, socialized medicine? i mean, i mean obviously we're going to have to do something here too because you've had so the hospital beds have been hospitals across the us have been absolutely inundated with this thought. the gracious pretty of all. where is a discussion about immune systems? where is the discussion about eating properly? where was the discussion about eating less junk food? and where was the discussion about taking care of yourself? instead of talking about mosque, why don't we talk about what you should eat and how you should take care of yourself? that is the problem. the government isn't going to come in and say right, less junk food. and why don't you lower your weight because it's the obese people and the people that are high risk, the people haven't taken care of themselves and the government isn't stepping in. talk about that smoking? is it doing factors of that size that got me? i knew years maybe they only talk about not doing that kind of things. i knew i solution, right? that's all we'll get it. so we've got a few minutes. so or thank you so much for setting light on this. when we return, can you pay off a criminal knock that a crime in california town is going to try,
1:50 am
but will it actually work? will tell us to break the o the ah, me join me every thursday on the alex silent show and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politic sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then.
1:51 am
me when i was wrong. when i was just don't need you to fill out the thing because the attitude an engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves with the parts we choose to look for common ground in the u. k. government is threatening to withhold millions of pounds promised her friends in order to help confront the migrant crisis. united kingdom accuses paris not pulling its weight as a record number of people continued to arrive on u. k. beaches after leaving from northern france. paris and return call the
1:52 am
accusation. a serious loss of trust. shot edwards dusty has the story from london. if a child have french count parts, yes, again, in the middle of a war of words and it's all about the escalating crisis on the english channel. it comes as just yesterday alone, 800 people crossed the english channel, one of the worlds of busiest shipping line. so today, pre capital hosted a meeting with the french interior minister off the pre to patel, threatened to cut the 54000000 pounds pledge of funding pledge to assist in the french operations over across the channel unless small boats are intercepted. now that didn't go down too well with the french or socrates. many people in fact quite furious across the english channel saying this is not a tool they signed up for the conditions of the suns. when you go,
1:53 am
she did indeed to the british and it was never on condition of specific targets. that approach would translate into a serious loss of trust in our corporation. well, it's been a bit of a tit for tat between the 2 nations for quite some time. now, the french have always said that this is a british problem and that they should be dealing with the issue out source i. e, the very countries in which refugees are headed towards you are particularly heightened time as we know the crisis and catastrophe in africa. stone has seen some millions of people being displaced, many of which are trying to head to the united kingdom. so the french saying it's a british problem. the british is saying it's a french problem and they should actually be trying to intercept these. but it's and turn them back to france. now campaign is here in the united kingdom. they've long. * been saying the answer to all of this is neither what the french nor purchased say, but actually to try and see safer and legal passages for asylum seekers so that
1:54 am
they don't have to risk their lives trying to cross the english channel. but the u . k. government says it's working to target people smugglers to try and alleviate the crisis. we remain determined to fix the broken silence system and break the business model of people smugglers who put lives at risk and welcome people through safe and legal routes. while they see a record, 13500 asylum seekers have crossed the english channel in small but it's just a 1000 in the last 2 days. now the conservative m p 's here in the united kingdom, beck calling for the home secretary to even break international law and send all of the assign him see because of back to france if they've traveled to illegally by boat. now, francais, if the u. k does not, there will be serious consequences and then it's doing all it can to try and prevent these crossings. they say since january, they've been up to 10000 and brought them back to the french shores. despite the
1:55 am
french authorities having to do with a raw amount of space to police on the beach is over in france. the fact is, we've got 302400 kilometers of short monitor every day and every night. and it's quite impossible to have police officers every 100 meters because of the length of the shore law here in the united kingdom. and the home secretary in particular has had some rather robust rhetoric over the years, particularly aimed on assign him seekers headed to the united kingdom. in fact, preach patel has now got the reputation of the credit deville and the immigration system. for what many people would argue is particularly hostile. we to look at the beginning of her 10 years. she said the crossings would be an infrequent phenomenon . the loftier she promised to shut off the route entirely. and this d, as she's pushing through an immigration bill making crossings, a legal meaning that anybody that does head to the united kingdom by boat could be seen to go even to be jailed in fact, but no matter how hostile,
1:56 am
pre to protect policies or comments are it's not stopping asylum seekers headed to the united kingdom. it seems that the u. k. is still far safe haven other than countries that they are fleeing from. hence this latest influx of asylum seekers here in the united kingdom. but perhaps now the home secretary should change tact, considering the numbers are not going down. any program in san francisco wants to pay a small group of people not to commit crimes. critics call giving cash to criminals, but other say it's a path towards preventing violence or to correspond it. natasha. sweet. explains for human rights commission in san francisco is launching a pilot programs that take effect next month. well heading out money really help quite crime and gun violence. in particular, like much of the country, san francisco's economy is still feeling the effects of the pandemic locked downs while a popular tourist destination. a lack of international travelers is impacting the
1:57 am
golden city. but what about it safety? city leaders are closely i'm gun violence and are promoting a small initiative to help combat it. the human rights commission is launching a pilot program. it will pay 10 people who want to change their lives. $300.00 a month, not to commit gun crimes, cheryl davis executive director of the san francisco human rights commission says we're doing this to make sure that we don't have more senseless violence. davis says this group of people with a criminal past will essentially become community and master's critics. question the effectiveness of giving money to people to do the right thing. those for the program argue that that has worked in other cities like oakland. the programs are poorly funded through a mix of donation, state and federal funds. the pilot program is set to take effect in october and these community baset ers were poorly received their money in the form of gift card and that spending over quarterly to be tracked reporting for new b choose and how to sweet r t. that's all the time we ever today. so like always,
