he's the only president of the united states that can claim that he's created to prices at the same time, one in our southern border and one in afghan. a stan, it's not only a humanitarian crisis is also a national security one. there's just no plan. and there is no leadership, and we do not see, nor do we expect to see any real deportation back to haiti or 2 other countries with which we're not even talking about with regard to the 200000 that are are, are crossing our borders. now, the reason why we know that del rio is the issue, is because the governor of texas secured his own state as critical areas. and so it's pushing these migrants into del ria, there's absolutely no way that a republican president or donald trump. they were, if they were implemented, we would have this type of crisis, humanitarian crisis,
10:31 pm
national security crisis at our borders. know, there's the headlines for this, our se, shooting for news views. hughes coming up next. we will turn in half an hour with the latest to join us again that me driven by adrenal shaped by those with me in me dares think. ah,
10:32 pm
we dare to ask in ah, ah ah, as the united nations said to begin this week, sir, here general antonio gutierrez, a warrant of a new cold war. china in the u. s. don't repair their completely dysfunctional relationship. we will look into that relationship and why even events over the weekend show both sides are headed towards conflict rather than looking for peace and saturdays. j. 6 rally had more press and law enforcement present an actual protest or so what was the final cost taxpayers for the event which led to only one arrest by cap a please for a man who is armed. but later, after they found out he was just an undercover federal agent. and president biden
10:33 pm
continues to stumble through foreign policy challenges in his 1st year of presidency. but at least a bite is pushing his build back better agenda with hope of bringing relief to middle and lower class american. and it's failing popularity with members of even his own party. we're going to give you the 360 view of where the president currently stan, i'm sorry. i know he's the stores are more on stage news views. he's right here on our t america. let's get started. ah, thanks for joining us. you know, we're gonna start this week with france who recalled it's ambassadors, the u. s. and australia, which cancelled a gala in washington and cancel a meeting with it's a long time ally, the united kingdom. now france did this after the country was snubbed in a multi $1000000000.00 submarine deal. while the us, you can, australia are trying to kind of smooth things over. frances seeking support from
10:34 pm
its e friends in the situation which is actually described as a stab in the back or to to alex my elevator has the story. while frances, so called friends, try to smooth things over. we cooperate incredibly closely with france. we stand shoulder to shoulder with the french and so we look to work with the french and, and many other like minded patterns. france continues to be furious and it is not hiding it. here is the country's foreign minister on france to you. there was a lie also, there was duplicity. there was a major cross with you and there with the stainless things are not going well between not at all. so it means that there is a crisis in what many are calling another move by the west to contain china. the u . s. and u. k. have signed a strategic agreement with australia known as office. a part of the deal is the sale of nuclear powered submarines to australia, a western allies situated in the pacific, china's neighborhood. however,
10:35 pm
the move was made at the expense of an important needle ally, france. paris has signed a $40000000000.00 deal with australia to sell conventional diesel submarines to the country, which was suddenly scrapped when arcus emerged. now australia will be buying sub technology from the u. s. in cooperation with the u. k. providing australia with at least 8 nuclear powered submarine i am on while the u. s. insist that france was made aware of a deal ahead of time. france denies the clean. the law years frances ambassador to the united states is a few days before the announcement of last wednesday. there was a meeting to australian and friends of ministers of defense and foreign affairs in which not only we absolutely were not informed of the new course chosen by railey. and what's more, there was praise once again and about the contract we signed in 2016 us between australia and the frame, the side of the, the french company with an american company. let's not forget, it was
10:36 pm
a contract with 3 parties with an american, with a company called, in reaction to the submarine deal. france has recalled us ambassador to the us and australia, canceled meetings with british australian officials, and is now hoping to rally its u allies to back its cause at the end of the last round with australia which took place in june. it was agreed that the next round of trade talks would take place in october. so this is the current state of play. we are analyzing the impact of the august nonsense. and what did this impact would be on, on this, on the schedule. for instance, foreign minister is in new york where he will be representing his country at the un general assembly. he plans to meet his european union counterparts in the city to discuss the follow from the submarine deal for our t. i'm alex, my hi la bitch. to discuss further,
10:37 pm
a brand executive director of the ron paul institute, dana mcadam. thanks for joining me, daniel. but i've got a oh, interesting turn of events over the last week. so when i said that the us in france would not be on good terms. i kind of would have laughed out of it. here we stand. as at lunch time on friday, france withdrew her and passers from the united states. actually, the 1st time ever that we have had this situation happen. now i have frances defense minister cancelling her talks with her u. k counterpart. the british, however, still pretty optimistic, the relationship is going to heal. but is there any long term damaged you believe, to nato, and that might be a good thing of being done from this deal. it's really fascinating because he here are the french. they are so thrilled, advice is elected. he is the expert in foreign policy. america is back, the adults are back in the room. no more buffoonery from president trump, who thumbed his nose at nato. he didn't consult him. he did he wanted. and here you have a snub that makes anything. trump said,
10:38 pm
let alone did pale by comparison. so you do have your right sit back and snicker a little bit at these people who thought that somehow things would change. in fact, they have changed, but for the worse. well, that's the thing, you know, president biden is saying that things are great even today and the press conference and for saki said, oh, there's not a problem. the deal is gonna happen no matter what, we're going to be friends with the french president but, but it is actually said he wants to speak to president micron in the near future mac cron. not so schedule it says schedule get might be likely, but what can bite and say at this point to actually help smooth over this tension that has happening between the 2 countries. what's interesting because a lot of this, this blundering certainly wasn't done by biting because i'm not sure he knows exactly where he is literally at the moment. but a lot of this blundering was done by not only anthony blinking, but particularly the president's national security advisor. jake sullivan, who let's not forget was one of the prime prime authors of the russia gate scan.
10:39 pm
the russia get lie. he was one of the prime authors. he's the one who, whether he didn't have the courage, whether he was just having a busy day. what have you, they didn't bother to tell france beforehand it's, it's been reported that literally the french prime minister found out through an article in politico rather than a phone call from washington. and so the french uproar is understandable because it was duplicated is because there was an agreement between the 3 countries actually back in the spring to do this deal. and then when australia and french met in june, france had no idea that australia had already agreed on a different deal and was to change that everything was hunky dory. so stab in the back is really a light way of putting it. i've never seen such blundering on the international stage, and you would think that would be like an open discussion of this. i mean, let's be adults in the room. you're kind of dealing with some very serious issues. and that's where i think the e u is kind of looking at. i found it curious. so that after what happened with australia, the launch this endo pacific plan and new and they wanted to revitalize. they want
10:40 pm
to strengthen their ties, the japan, south korea, singapore, and taiwan. do you think this means they're looking at the aggression with china and say, you know what, we're going to wind actually with the u. s. over this, for our fears in the future of what china might be capable of doing well, i think a lot of what you're saying is, frankly, you know, kind of lucky us blackmail and one of alabama website has some great analysis on this. if you look at it, essentially the, you know, the us is looking at a straight. as for chinese number one, trading partner, a trying to is, australia is number one, trading partner and the u. s. a said to australia, look, you've got to take sides. you've got to make a choice, you're either on board with us in this new cold war, or you are going to think you, you're going down. and the same is true with the u. s. relationship with other countries in the asia pacific region. however, these aren't the only countries in the region. we have to stop it as our cells for a 2nd. what will indonesia feel like when it sees just its southern neighbor with
10:41 pm
a fleet of nuclear arm attacks or nuclear powered, at least for the moment attack subs capable of reaching and capable between the region. this isn't normally the, the stabilizing for the region, but of course it's very stabilizing. if you have to be in the submarine ship building business, which a lot of washington is, was interesting to bring up this phrase cold war, because that's actually the un secretary general as daniel, as a damn. again, thank you for joining us. we're going to continue the conversation. are we really having a cold war right now, and we'll be back to you soon to talk to more about bad subject alone. thanks for joining us. now is dana mcadam said there is this idea of a code word that is starting to truly grow between the united states and china. and then also find the appearance of a u. s. navy destroyer. in the taiwan strait region. the chinese armed forces actually conducted military exercises targeting taiwan. this is, i want to announce this plan to spend $8700000000.00 of the next 5 years on domestically produced arms, which include missiles, which could strike mainland china. but is this actually just the tip of
10:42 pm
a growing version of war, which the secretary general of the un just called and warned both united states and china that they needed to de escalate. so discuss sabrina former naval intelligence officer, john jordan. ok. simple $1000000.00 question are we here at the beginning of are currently involved and a cold war is the united states with china. we've been involved in a grey's own war with china for some time. i think we should rename this segment, the wages, a weakness, and this is probably the 2nd, the 3rd episode. the reason i say that scotty, is that with americans withdraw from afghanistan, this invited beijing to try to test washington's results. you're going to see a lot more of these types of exercises as, as, as mainland china try to feel out where are the limits, where washington's limits tolerances really are for, for chinese expansion in the region. well, i think what i'm most worried about, obviously this is not been good for the bottom ministration. there's
10:43 pm
a lot of words like chaos and coward being thrown against, you know, i guess ministration. obviously, are they going to either go with that or they going to take a stand and go over and say, you know what, we are stand up and that kind of where taiwan comes into play. you know, how far will the united states actually go to support taiwan and, well, they go militarily against china. if china decides to show some sort of aggressive stroke. what if china tries to 2 invades i won the united states and it won't be just the united states, it'll be the philippines in japan and australia. pretty much the rest of the rest of the pacific won't tolerate that. will come in on the side of one, but you raise a very good question is what happens of the chinese as they try to test the bio regime given the given it's pretty recent perception of weakness and chaos. there is the opportunity for some sort of miscalculation where china intends to do it as a task to promote washington in some way. and then washington retaliate or in this
10:44 pm
does engage in some sort of military action that china couldn't predict. they didn't intend to start, but couldn't predict. and so that's why weakness and chaos is a dangerous thing, and predictability and strengths tend to make their world a safer place. but sadly, we're not in that sort of situation right now. well, one of the thing that is, sadly ambridge was usually money and finances behind this. you know, i have to think about how the u. s. actually owes china right now about $1.00 trillion dollars in debt. so we're talking about how much is china going to give or take? how much are they going to push? does that not actually give china an upper hand or does a mass amount of chinese import? the u. s. takes in, is that enough to neutralize any leverage to china. my use to back the united states back down while i'm some credentials in economics to scotty and here's the problem with what we're trying to add that. what have you and somebody enough money? a little bit of money that you the,
10:45 pm
the bank owns you. if you borrow away too much money, eventually you on the bank, in this case, china's reserves of us treasury's, should they decide to sell it or dump it under the oak open market would cause would basically damage the value of their portfolio. would actually cost them money to try to sell it. so it's not realistic for them to say, oh, we're just going to dump treasury's more over one point. one trillion is only what $33.00 and a half percent of the total outstanding. but at the same time, that would also damage shine, as you point out, china's ability to export goods to the united states. and that's something that china doesn't want. so that's kind of kind of both sides are a little bit of a stand off there economically because both sides can inflict grievous harm on the other. well, and i think that's what i'm kind of worried about on this. i mean real quick before i let you go by and actually lifted the travel band to china. so some other countries, but people with some of the republicans look at this or saying this actually kind of biting cal towering to chinese to let the other ones. but if we're in this fi, we're trying to is that kind of showing that binds already, giving
10:46 pm
a unilateral concession to g a possibly. and it could be one of those nonverbal forms of communication where they're giving something by the ministration is making a very small, under the radar concession that only you and your producers are able to pick up to see what kind of reaction that would get from beijing oftentimes that's how meaningful dialogue is started by one side doing that, especially if it's something, it's a low risk, a low cost gesture. well, i would much rather do that kind of gesture than i don't know more wargames in the south pacific, like always great to talk with you john. the he's got the saturdays, j 6 rally, had more press and law enforcement present actual protesters. we're going to talk about the turn out and the final cost to taxpayers right after the break. the
10:47 pm
join me every thursday on the alex simon show. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politic sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. me look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except when the short or conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. the point obviously is to great track, rather than fear i would like to take on various jobs with artificial intelligence, real summoning with a robot must protect its own existence. with
10:48 pm
the several 100 people gathered for a rally saturday in washington, dc to support pro trump rioters. who rated the capital building back on january 6. now speaking the rally, they insisted that the writers who arrested our political prisoners, who committed no violence. now since january 6, 600 people have been arrested in connection to the swarm on the capital. but only 40 are behind bars currently and that's for protesters at the rally were calling for their release. our correspondence haven't jer has the details. washington, police officials have been expressing concern about the justice for 6 event. for weeks capital police were expecting the worse long foresman were taking no chances in their efforts to avoid a repeat of what happened on january 6. when the capital was violently carried by
10:49 pm
a mob of pro truck supporters ahead of the event. police said that they detected threats of violence and security was tightened in washington dc with offense. once again being put up around the capitol grounds in $100.00 national guard. troops were on stand by to help protect capital organizers had a permit for 700 to attend, but only about 100 to 200 protesters turned up capital pool. you said 400 people were inside to protest area, but that figure included the heavy media presence and police who easily our number of protesters. it's organizers look ahead, america were led by mad brain ard, the former campaign, a to president trump insisting that hundreds of writers arrested for their actions on january 6th were political prisoners who had committed no violence. this is about the many people who are there that day who have not been charged with
10:50 pm
violence, not been accused of the sultan police, after destroying property and district treatment they received in speaking to our teeth. on steve malls burg roger stone, former adviser to president trump agreed, this is called, i get prop, i don't know, a single person in the mega movement is going. it's a set up. here's my, here's my suggestion, the people who will be there. well, i'll be working for the government. nice. try january 6, gave the government the greatest single opportunity they've ever had to abridge our constitutional rights, particularly our 1st amendment rights. no patriots stay away from washington. this is what is called a set up and saudi, although about 140 police officers were injured on january 6, defending the congress, only a handful of protest from january 6, feel remain behind. bars bought from saturday, i protest 4 people were arrested and a hand gun and a gun and
10:51 pm
a knife world by the capital police. but india and the protesters did earn some modest gains, their mark, their territory was bill or any massive oppress coverage while but during to be a peaceful protest in saudi. i should mention, even with less than 200 testers, it's built for the federal government expense 1000000. on enhanced security, the exact number is still unclear, but their estimates are from anywhere from $5.00 to $10000000.00 for that security . and just to give our viewers and straighten it, cost the federal government about $500000000.00 just to deploy the $26000.00 national guard. in the aftermath of january attacks were news, news, news on the side, having your large one out there on saturdays rally was quite humorous actually at times for both sides of the aisle as they were spinning fast. so i think my washing machine trying to clean up the mess. where's the current polarized political
10:52 pm
divisions have made and from the left for present, had lucy trump's waiting influence, shown in a very small crowd size adjusted for j. 6 rally. and from the right, who seemed to have a field day with the fact that there was more press and feds came up with means like this one showing boy undercover officers dressed up to be what they thought protesters would look like. but even before the low energy protests on saturday, president biden has not had actually the smoothest run both internationally and domestically since being sworn into office in january. so let's take this temperature check and i know the guys who would've earned talked or it's in political planetary if there was actually such a thing i would award to them. democrat commentator jonathan harris and a former colorado state law maker. ted harvey has been the poetry business for a long time over several administrations now. so i x i would award you doctorate to penetrate if that was possible. thanks for joining me gentlemen. good afternoon. thanks for amazon. ok, i want to start with you jonathan. this is kind of,
10:53 pm
this is your, this is your circus last year with ted. this time it's yours. where do you feel like bided is actually doing better on domestic or international issues? well, i feel like he's having to do both. and a lot of times, you know, you can really put the focus on one or the other. but i feel like, with the pandemic here at home and, and obviously i'm gonna say he's having to kind of do them both at the same time. i think he's actually doing a pretty good job. obviously he took a bit of a hit on his approval rating with the pull out pulling us out of afghanistan, but also only shows that the majority of americans approve of the decision to leave afghanistan. so maybe some of the details with how things happened on the ground, which was bound to happen, but they approved the decision to leave. and i think also here at home, the way he's handling the vaccines is fantastic. there was a pull. ready from actually fox news, which was surprising or the fox news poll that showed that the majority of americans actually side with him on issues like math mandates,
10:54 pm
in schools and vaccine mandates and business. i think it was want to get the number 66 percent. i think sided with him on business mandates. vaccine mandates and 67 percent cited with him on school math mandate. so i think you doing a pretty good job. i think he's going to pretty good job, foreign and domestic. ok, so ted, you know, i guess i'm, i feel a bit easier. i think today going from a year ago when you were having to just pull punches at every side and didn't know which one was going to come next to go on air. but, you know, when you look at where everything has gone on with the findings, action, which actually do you think, deserves the most criticism and is creating the most anger out the administration outside of the normal base. well, certainly what i would hope would have created most criticism is his handling of afghanistan, and it was not supposed to happen this way despite good. my colleague has to say that the previous administration had not had a single person. i'm killed in the last 18 months that in the united states, in afghan, it's dan and he was working towards
10:55 pm
a judicious withdraw. everybody in the foreign policy arena understood that you had to pull out all of the foreign service officers out of the united states. first, all the civilians out, i mean, out of afghanistan 1st, before you pulled the military out. yet this president told us that we would never see something happened in afghan. it's dan like happened in vietnam where they were pulling foreign service officers off the roof of the embassy by helicopter. yet that's exactly what happened in afghanistan because he pulled the military out before he got everybody off the ground. and he, what resulted is, in was 13 military officers being killed on the, on the air strip as they're trying to error left to people out of the country. it's ridiculous. what happened yet. nobody is being held accountable for it. whether it's the president or the joint chiefs of staff or the secretary the while, and then you look at actually the retaliation. that's now the controversy we're
10:56 pm
talking about right now. finding out the bad intelligence had the wrong people killed and what to do about that. but that's on, that's how you know jonathan, it's always about a teammate. do you feel like comma harris is actually a good teammate, president biden, and the different challenges, and do you think you should be actually out there more on by his side. i just wanted to real quick last year 11 troops died now kenneth, and that's just, that's just not accurate. i just don't understand as i just thought that was important to point out. but as it relates to come on here, where, where are we getting the trips in number here, guys? now i'm going to get my 20. you worry of 2020. well let me tell you that. 20 february counselors last year. we were council 18 months. okay. well, i do recall me the details. let's move on. convenient point. my point is that true
10:57 pm
11. she died in afghanistan under trunk leadership. and you didn't hear anything from republicans because they couldn't use it as a political football. when a weird point you would you around anyway. ok, so let's get continue. about truck dwindled troops down to their lowest level since 2001. but ok as it relates to come all and i do think that she's a good, a good running made for him. only because it's kind of unfortunate for her, it seems as though he hands are kind of the more difficult issue, some of the issues he doesn't necessarily want to deal with. and i think that hurts her a little bit. but in a, in a way, in terms of p r, i think it works very well because he can say, you know, we're working on it. the administration is working on it, but it puts the focus on her. so it's kind of unfortunate for her, but i think it works. i think it does work for him. okay, so can i with respect to you and we're getting these answers for, you know, you know, normally in the months and republicans right now you can, you cannot dismiss that. they are actually pretty lining up things already looking at the mid terms. normally though you want those months leading up to election day
10:58 pm
to be the ones that are filled with the bad press on the opposition. so you think it's too soon considering we're still 14 months out for the midterm. will republicans be able to keep that same sort of emotion engagement with republicans at this administration for the next year and a half? well, honestly, i don't think what happened in afghanistan in the fact that we did desert american civil service officers on the ground in afghanistan has anything to do with politics. and we should not deal with it as politics. it has to do with the fact that different ministration was an abject failure in protecting us citizens on the ground. my brother is a 30 year foreign service officer. he served in embassies throughout the middle east during his career. he is outraged by what happened and he resigned the administration last week because of it has nothing to do with politics. but having said that, i think that this administration is going to go down as the worked administration and going into the 2022 election. that's not good for any party, for your president to be put in that situation. and the democrats in congress are
10:59 pm
going to lose the house and lose the senate accordingly. well, we'll continue that conversation there. thank you, doctors. and that's all the time we have to show, but i promise the conversation will continue to follow me on twitter as guardian hughes. like, always thanks for watching. ah, ah, ah. ah, me let us democrats talk
11:00 pm
endlessly about the so called january 6 insurrection. there were less concerned with the real possibility general mark, milly, when, constitutionally wrote also, the art of stabbing, an ally in the back is the person you condemn russia's parliamentary elections. the remaining votes are counted, fix that more than 2 dozen wounded in a shooting at a university in central russia. elaine, the tucker is under arrest with one student describing what he saw, my friends and i was standing at the parking lot near the entrance where the gunshot turned and saw the shooter standing 20 meters away with his shotgun.
