network we begin with the latest on afghanistan edward lawrence is at the white house with more. >> the president early this afternoon backing up why he will not move the july or august 31 deadline to remove all american troops out of afghanistan right now the military is evacuating americans as well as those who help the u.s. allies over the past 12 years leaders of the united kingdom, france, germany publicly asked the president to move the deadline because of operations they have going on president biden standing firm linking himself with the rest oe the g7 even though they question the deadline. >> we agree legitimacy of any future government depends on the approach it now takes to uphold international obligations including to prevent afghanistan as a base for terrorism and we agree that none of us are going to take the taliban's word for it, we will judge them by their
actions. >> still in a statement the white house state department ane pentagon asked for contingency plans just in case the deadline has to be moved the president also says the evacuation depends on continued cooperation with the taliban republicans cannot believe the administration's plan has fallen apart so quickly. >> i have called this consistently an unmitigated disaster of effort proportions it will be a stain on this presidency in particular after decision made today and what we heard today he will have blood on his hands, people are going to die and left behind the biggest creed on the military is no ma'am left behind, no one left behind and as precisely that's what were doing. >> the president said the reason foran leaving afghan and coble because the mission objectives have been achieved.
elizabeth: edward lawrence thank you so much joining me now deputy advisor kt mcfarland and rob o'neill he's a former navy seal who killed osama bin laden, first to you can we get the thousands of americans out now, how would you do it? >> we see a lot of marines and second airborne at the airfield and let the taliban no i'm amazed were telling the taliban giving them permission until he never going to kill everyone with a gun and is not going to take one day it'll take a number of weeks and every time we meet the taliban we crush them and we need to do it again and it's time for the administration to admit we were wrong to pullout and now were going to fix it because i'm a big believer it doesn't matter how you got where you're going, you're just bitter now and were here now and we have people who really need us with the coalition.
elizabeth: you hear what rob is saying but the white house is saying the road to thes kabul airport is blocked inow the whie house does not know how many americans are stranded and expected to be several thousand, fears that they cannot reach the kabul airport in time the u.s. embassy saying there will be delays due to checkpoints, get out there and do it in on your own, rob is saying something entirely different, what do you say? >> rob is right it's inconceivable to me that a president of the united states is leaving american citizens behind in afghanistan knowing what awaits them, he's doing it why, he's trusting the word of the taliban, taking orders from the taliban about getting the american military at a certains point, we have american citizens all over afghanistan, the not distant kabul and working for the u.s. government, the people the girls and part of afghanistan, where one or two or
three civilians who will be working on a farming project, these people are alone and they have no way of getting to kabul. airport it's not like you get in your car and drive from washington to boston, these are people no wave from getting one place to another and even if they had a car to drive to the cobbler airport they would be stopped every mile or two, everybody in afghanistan has ak-47 and looking for americans abroad, my concern, i'm getting it logically from the administration theyro keep sayig were gonna evacuate all americans who want to leave in their definition of who wants ti leave are the people who get themselves to kabul airport in time by august 31. elizabeth: so this is going to be a clinton moment depending oa what the word is the really gonna go there you hear what kt
is saying and you can see what trump's position was his plan was nato and the un security council says the asset that plan, it's conditions cut off ties with al-qaeda and when you have a plan you will count for americans ahead of time that's what kash patel is saying biden dump the plan and did not have a plan now we are democrat house intelligence chair adam schiff saying its unlikely evacuations will be done by august 31 and they cannot account for every american, d.c. was going on. >> isn't it crazy there already making excuses knowing that they screwed up and knowing they can tfix it to but we always knew on the ground t eventually were goa have to negotiate the taliban at some point because they're just there in the right across the border with pakistan the entire time they have been planning this entire time but we need toe give them conditions and certainly don't want them to surround the airport, they're giving us a timeline and an ultimatum which is complete nonsense, these are not good people and they should be
treated as a legitimate government which were doing and doing everything that they want because i'm convinced a lot of people in the administration of the pentagon know when we get everyone out there will be more anymore television and internet and afghanistan, number social media will forget what cordon bleu and not think about the people who are getting their heads cut off in front of the family. elizabeth: also this the humann. commissioner is saying there is a rise, and the united nations is saying arise industry execution happening right now including sexual assault and more, biden's approval rating plunging nearly ten percentage points and historic fall in just one week to 41%. new usa today university poll shows that, the majority say they disagree with how he's handling this, when you see that and see the way when republican ben sasse is saying tell the taliban were getting everyone
out as long as it takes, damn the deadline, that which you want to call them? >> yes and that would probably also say you have the head of one american we will get you and your family and your cousins and everybody else, you do not do this to americans. i really worry about what happens next. i think the price of this, the biden presidency is finished, he will never be able to reclaim the confidence you have an american president, he's been seen to be what he is he's incompetent and incoherent and uncaring, his presidency issh finished. i don't want america to be finished i don't want this to be the inflection point where all the countries in the world like the g7 to talk to president biden today and they were not going to follow american anymore and much less us were adversaries now take advantage and the role of foreign policy if your adversary is weak or distracted or in trouble of any
sort that's when you make your move china makes its move on taiwan within the next couple months knowing that they will mget no response and no pushbak from the biden administration that will have a ramification that the united states will be living with for 100 years. elizabeth: it is clear, by the way kt mentioned the g7 and the u.s. allies in nato are shocked and outraged of what's going on biden assured them in june 2 months ago it would be a stable withdrawal, that did not happen it was nato that invoked article five after 9/11 saying one members attack we are all attacked it is clear the press has had it with dissembling in the pre-variation, watch jake sullivan he is refusing to commit the biden will secure kabul airport until every american is out and watching the cbs reporter asked the pentagon spokesman using deliberately
vague on the number of americans still stranded. watch this. >> is the president decided whether he is going to need more time beyond august 31 to get all u.s. personnel and afghan people out of the country? >> as i said, the president believes were making substantial progress, the broader point i would make, we have been able to take advantage of officers throughout this building and around the world. interested i'm just interested in answering the question, are you still sending people there? >> a matter of checking the number, can you do that and get it to us or if you're being deliberately vague, tell me why you are being deliberately vague. >> i'm going to leave it at several thousand right now. elizabeth: that is what is so shocking they don't know how many americans are stranded y there, they are saying you're on your own, make your way to the airport, what happened.
>> i don't think they know exactly how many are there, in theory project how many are there exactly but is something for being deliberately vague because that's what they do and they get a free pass for most of the media but you cannot deny what's happeningt we get people fallen because it's better to hold onto a landing gear of a jack 1150 miles an hour then live with the taliban, kt made a great point, i'd be really nervous if i was taiwan because china is going to make some moves in china doesn't mess around when china fights china kills in taiwan is going to be the aligned australians and the japanese tot help them, would yu want to be a source for the united states right now and stand up to the united states inevitably back out and leave you to die, not just die but die really, really bad? elizabeth: kt mcfarland, rob o'neill thank you both for your service to our country, good to have you on up next for counter

trump nathan sales, great to have you want, your reaction to that. >> it isn. heartbreaking and i think it shows the real disconnect between what people were saying in washington and the reality on the ground in kabul were hearing rosy predictions about the ability to get everybody out on time it is not going to happen we are b leaving people behind in americans behind, we will be leaving afghan translators and soldiers who fought alongside their american brothers and sisters, that is no way to run a withdrawal. elizabeth: adam schiff chair of the house intelligence committee who is a democrat he said it's very unlikely all will be evacuated by august 31, lawmakers are outraged, both sides of the aisle, lack of accountability pre-very kate inducible by biden and his team and his spokesman including i sullivan, price, jen psaki and
kirby the top spinning and touting the evacuation effort when biden created the crisis to begin with ignoring the generals in nato pulling out with no plan unnecessarily stranding u.s. citizens and allies behind political lines pre-why get it a logical and topspin a crisis with american and allison harm's way? >> is a great question, it is not too late to change course we still have time while we have a substantial military presence on the ground to say to the taliban you don't get the bosses around we are dictating terms to you, way it works superpowers don't take terms from tourist if the other way around what the white house needs to do is make clear we are going to keep our soldiers atag the airport or if necessary bagram air base north of the city until every last american is evacuated and every last afghan translator, soldier or vulnerable person who believes in america is able to get out of
harm's way because today when the president decided were leaving on the 31st come hell or high water he signed a death warrant for the people who are going to be left behind. elizabeth: the u.s. government telling americans in afghanistan you have to get yourself to the airport let's watch press secretary jen psaki first say she doesn't know how many americans have been evacuated in behind terrorist lines and then try to claim it's the responsible to say they are stranded. >> i know my colleague jen kirby said a few thousand americans have been evacuated earlier today, the vast majority have been afghans given the size of the population that we are moving outut and i'm happy to follow up after the briefing and see what information we can achieve. >> most of it criticism is not of leaving afghanistan, it's the way that he has ordered it to happen by pulling the troops before getting the americans who are now stranded.
>> into responsible to say americans are stranded, they are not. >> there is no american stranded, the white house official division on what's happening in afghanistan. elizabeth: let's show cbs, washington post, the new york times according to yes americans are stranded, what would jen psaki call if she can't get her children because of the taliban which he call it babysitting is this a global hostage crisis? >> that is a real fear and ask any americans whose desperately trying to break taliban checkpoint and gaslight of freedom whether they feels stranded and they probably give you a different answer from what we heard from the white house. if we don't't get americans oute will see them again and hostage videos put out by the taliban, the taliban and al-qaeda have been taken americans hostage for years, with 15000 of our fellow countrymen inen harm's way, we'e
got to get them out because if we don't the taliban are going to go door to door, hunt them down and t find them and we will not like what happens next. elizabeth: guess what happens next the administration is freezing afghanistan's assets at the federal reserve and elsewhere and blocking funds at the imf don't you see a hostage crisis coming they will say will take an american and you have to unfreeze the box for us. thank you for joining us we really appreciate it, up next mitra shell, the house republican minority leader says speaker pelosi instead of working the phone trying to get the spending and strive against the attacks plan that you want, try working the phones into every americans from afghanistan, that story next. >> have trained other tax increase in the massive spending program is a disaster for the country. ♪

afford to lose three votes, any votes on that and it's done then we have kyrsten sinema saying we don't like to read half trillion on the budget reconciliation may e be its infrastructure. trillion on we just want infrastructure. kevin mccarthy says work the phones to get americans out of afghanistan first, don't work the phones to bully this, what do you say, mitch. >> anybody voting in the midterms elections is the mess in afghanistan. the economy is grinding along, improving day by day. a piece of legislation that will ultimately hurt the economy and not help it is not going to help voters with the number one issue they had prior to two weeks ago when afghanistan was top of mind which is the economy. this $3.5 trillion social infrastructure program which will be inflationary, at best, could be more devastating than that will hurt the very people that the democrats want to help which is the most vulnerable in our society.
elizabeth: you know, mitch, you make an important point. we had major top-down pressure on the 10 centrist moderate democrats, we don't like how you're doing this, nancy pelosi. it included pressure from the white house. listen to ranking house budget member jason smith. the congressman talked to us last night. they were threatening charges of racism and sexism to pressure the 10 centrists to go along. watch this. >> they are making every kind of threat in the book. they are threatening your members you have to vote for the budget resolution rule tonight. if you don't, you're voting against women, you're voting against women of color. they're doing everything because they don't simply have the votes. elizabeth: what do you say? >> well, you know what? i will echo the point i made earlier if you look at the $3.5 trillion piece, that is not roads and bridges. that is something, a new term we've learned to get indigestion over which is human infrastructure. if you look at that those are
social welfare programs, many of them, if they get enacted it will take generations to undo those. and theoretically those are trying to help the minorities. those are trying to help inner-city youth. all important things for our society but when gasoline becomes twice as expensive, when groceries become twice as expensive because of runaway inflation that hurts lower income bands the a lot more than hurts rich. the only pay-for they're talking about is punishing the rich. elizabeth: where are the jobs? do you hear about economic growth and jobs in these plans? you know what happened too? "politico" reporting that democrats campaign arm in congress threatened to financially cut off the moderates if they oppose pelosi in the plan. it was that same democrat congressional campaign committee that held this lavish wine fund-raiser in napa valley which has a spike in covid cases in order to convince democrats to go along with pelosi, no masks,
no social distancing. we get it they were outside but the point is they're ordering fines and bullying everyone else to do social distancing and wear masks if you're vaccinated. it feels like a really weird time in this country what is going on, mitch, what to you say, final word? >> you know what? it is one thing to vilify the rich and i can understand the politics behind it but right now vilifying centrists, people in the middle, the people who voters really want to get behind because they're not polarizing, i think that is a political blunder on the part of the speaker. elizabeth: okay. mitch roschelle, thanks for joining us. it is good to see you. >> good to sue as well, liz. >> come back soon, mitch roschelle. next up president biden capitulates, gives in to taliban demands. there are still tens of billions of dollars of military hardware missing in afghanistan. why should we trust nancy pelosi with multitrillion dollar spending plans when she is

that have fought with us getting them out, who has held us to this date where we will perhaps leave americans behind, that is contrary tor everything, our military in our country is supposed to be about, yetut president biden comes on a glowing way and announces augusw wonderful of an agenda he has is pretty remarkable and quite disturbing. elizabeth: media critics calling out msnbc cnn with the trump deal with the taliban saying biden could have gotten rid of that he wasn't handcuffed by it and trump had conditions with a withdrawal plan saying if you connect with al-qaeda we will come back with you and he released 5000 taliban and agreed to release 5000 taliban prisoners in exchange for a thousand afghan soldiers you can see why that is parked under problematic but the point of the condition you account ahead of time for how many americans are
there, now they don't know how many americans are stranded because they simply unplugged it and pulled out, robert gates forward top security official said biden never got it right and for new year's and biden policy. >> he did say that and he's right were seated once again and how sad the current president has to state he was held by a past agreement by the trump of administration when he abandoned every other agreement regarding the border in the paris climate and iran is a shameless excuse making that with no conditions assigned to the situation, no planning was there enough meetings to see there was no planning and i know it was a fact we all do when president trump was in office the conditions were very clear and if those conditions were not met it is clear the full might of
the united states military would be used against the taliban and those breaking such an agreement i know that from someone who w s in the room as it was stated it's nonsense and it continues to erode trust and that's one of the biggest problems outside of all of our americans in afghanistan becoming another hotbed of terrorism completely caused by the policies of the biden administration. elizabeth: the american people are being actively misled and misinformed and real-time that's what's happening, nancy pelosi saying, she told the local tv station in their home districts in california this is what happens, talking about tens of billions of dollars military hardware and assets left behind to the taliban. congressman jim banks says now the taliban has more blackhawks than 85% of countries all the
countries around the world. he's trying to lead a resistance inside of afghanistan, he askedn the white house for some military help, he said he was turned down, what do you say to that. >> it's incredulous and very difficult to get in the minds of this rational thought and what congressman banks did say is true well over 150 perhaps blackhawk helicopters, thousands of vehicles, all kinds of arms were seeing them utilize it, it's a complete misunderstanding of what's important and it's quite i delusional and by the wy is not just comingnc out of the white house, here we are in the capital and today nancy pelosi in the leadership of the democrat house are rewarding themselves to pacify trillion dollars spending bill, not to mention they will take over elections and they do such a good job they should be elected into office regularly. we have got to get real, we have

than 300 stolen mail-in ballots for the upcoming recall election, a loaded gun and drugs, he was arrested how did those ballots get inn his hands, what is the chain of custody for mail-in ballots. >> you're absolutely right that should set off red flags not only in california but also across the country and to be perfectly honest, with gavin newsom on the ropes you have to think this is a little bit more than coincidental. elizabeth: 300 unopened vote by mail ballots, that's what were talking about in the ballots reportedly not tampered with and address to residences in california compton and there's some that in the los angeles county registrar said trust us there's nothing to indicate anything funny going on, should we be worried? >> we should absolutelye be worried it's hard to take the l.a. county registrar at their word when their business was not held by long by the cops.
we don't know whyhy this happend there trying to brush under the rug but it does not breed confidence in the california recall election. nancy pelosi said she would activate her own operation, maybe this is what shema meant. elizabeth: we don't know we know you're being sufficient, here's the thing california recall will heavily feature mail-in ballots, that led to increased concerns of voter fraud, last week reports came in some ballot envelopes have holes that could expose answers saying i want to recall the governor or no i don't want to recall the governor, listen to this. los angeles officials explain and say we need to have the envelopes to make sure that the ballot was removed from the lyenvelope, really, what are taxpayers paying you for, you can't even bring yourself to
open the envelope to see that the ballot was removed, you need a hole in the envelope, what are they talking about. >> that's a great question they should puzzle everyone this is something that ric grenell and i brought up in twitter and it's very simple i trained operative can determine just by looking at the envelope of many ballots in california whether or not somebody is voting to recall gavin newsom just by looking outside of t the envelope and given the way california ballot harvesting vote by mail and no voter id, let's be honest it isn't very hard to figure out how somebody can attempt the election of gavin newsom's favor. elizabeth: i don't want to get you upset and make your laryngitis worst, how prevalent are these envelopes with holes throughout california. >> is 58 counties in california not all of them are using it but there is certainly an l.a.
county and several other big counties and it's ata lot of vos we are talking aboutut by mail with the two holes, you can absolutely tilt the election, what is troubling in california you don't have voter id your ballot harvesting and democrats on capitol hill want to turn california's roles nationwide and the reason they have these roles they have a super majority in the legislature to read the rules in their favor for many decades. elizabeth: ford o'connell, thank you for joining us it's good to see you. up next arizona attorney general mark byrne of its, chaos in afghanistan hitting the crisis of the border, homeland security and border officials warned of that threat. you're watching "the evening edit" on fox business. >> congress could fix this if they would change the law if they would address three loopholes that bring these families across the border we wouldn't have this issue today.

coming across because the taliban released prisoners throughout afghanistan, what do you say to the story. >> we have talked about this in the past border security is national security and i think it's a sad day in the united states of america under the taliban set a deadline of auguss rolling off the wall, and saying the taliban can come across ursula border anytime we want we know from the evidence of the data that there are people on the terrorist watch list coming across the border and there's tens of thousands of gotta waste people not apprehended as we see the surge the record number of people crossing our southern border illegally we know it's led to a dramatic increasegaga f fentanyl and the cartels for having more control over southern borders and now we know as a result of president biden's policies america's less safe because tears will be in our back door. elizabeth: we broke the news
last night the house conservatives sent a letter to dhs secretary mayorkas saint secure the border now warning about the terrorist released from bagram air base that they compose a threat at our southern border, ron vitello former top border guy said shut the border, what do you say, shut the border. >> absolutely we need to secure our southern border at the national security and the american taxpayers her attempt to be breaking there was a time when the taliban was armed with soviet ak-47 and a result of president biden's failed policy and helicopters and humvees and in bee gees, this is a problem that's going to come back to haunt the united states of america and we absolutely had to secure w the border at the first line of defense and were feeling it's unsustainable with the biden administration is doing don't take my words, those are literally the words of secretary mayorkas when he does annoys being recorded the biden administration knows we're saving the american taxpayer and putting us in harms way god knows why were k doing it but we
all need to pray for president biden to ensure that he gets the wisdom that he needs to protect americans first before worrying about the far left in this country. elizabeth: former top portable chilled chief rodney scott worried about this and you point out the homeland security secretary warning what is happening by you guys that is unsustainable, let's listen to this. to include tea stds that's a level we'd never seen before that is a real threat. [inaudible] elizabeth: rodney scott referred to the term tsc a terrorist screening database at the fbi, when you hear him use that term what is your reaction. >> you should send a shiver up everyone's fine in this country as we know the cartels use the crisis and use the biden
administration a lack of following the law in order to amake excuses to gain the fentanyl coming across the border and now as a result of the policy there will be more opportunities for terrorist to think of this country, it's unconscionable related to that the head of the border patrol that is forced out by the bidens administration this last month in the time of crisis you're forcing out people that have a steady hand and have that experience.. which shows you what the biden administration does is a systematic attempt to dismantle our borders and empower the cartel and now provide safe haven who may be committing to this country. it's actually unconscionable and we have three active lawsuits against the bideng administratin and i'm just try to get the federal government and the biden administration to follow the federal law and put americans first and that's what we need to do as a country if we want to have safe and securehe
neighborhoods. elizabeth: the intelligence community where the administration about terror threats at the southern border weeks after president biden also plan to withdraw from afghanistan already border patrol officers have arrested too many nationals on the terror watch list and fbi no fly list into terrorist from serbia this was in the last fiscal year, we are here and what about the 300,000 gottaer waste. >> they got a ways is one of the most important things, as you know there is literally tens of thousands of people record number of people illegally crossing our southern border, so far a million people secretary mayorkas has been homeland security, we know these are people surrendering, going into border patrol custody, you have to ask yourself the tensf of thousands of hundreds of thousands of people that are not going into custody, they are trained to apprehend or avoid apprehension, what is on your
mind we know from people that have been apprehended there is c people on the terror watch list and the terror paid under database one is one too many in this country america's less safe as a result of the biden administration careless disregard of what's going on in our southern border, as you know i'm a first generation american we have to have a system that works to allow people in this country but you can't have chaos and disorder and you can't essentially outsource our border security toes the cartel that'st the biden administration is doing you trust the cartel to keep your neighborhood safe. elizabeth: that's a great point final question supreme court taking on remaining mexico policy putting this day on a lower court t basically saying this remaining mexico pushback against the biden administration is still in play do you think that the supreme court will rule against the biden administration or remaining mexico? >> i do think if you look at recent case law we have a case pending on the very issue the
ninth circuit, the fifth circuit said that the law and what that the law says all were asking to enforce the law as it is. elizabeth: attorney general of arizona, it's good to see you, thank you for coming on, come back soon. i'm elizabeth macdonald you been watching the evening edit on fox business, that does it for us. thank you for watching and we hope you have a good evening. ♪ "kudlow". ♪. david: hello, everyone, welcome to "kudlow" david asman in for kudlow. the president woe speak at noon, that he would speak at 2:00, 2:30. then we're told during this or the next hour.
