this video where a mother in south africa was forced to throw her baby from a building after it was reportedly set on fire by looters. you can see her throwing her daughter to a crowd below. thankfully, both were able to escape unharmed. scary. unfortunately, that is all the time we have left. please set your dvr and never miss an episode. in the meantime, let not your heart be troubled. laura ingraham, big show tonight. >> laura: yeah, hannity, we are going to pick up where you left off with that horrific south africa story, because this portends trouble in the united states, when you have a laura: we will pick up where you left off that horrific south africa story with lera logan. does this portend from over the united states with total breakdown of law and order and a lot of racial anxiety? we will talk about that. excellent show tonight the time laura ingraham, we have a packed show tonight so we will jump right in. the surge of distrust, that is the focus of tonight's angle.
60 years ago a man who knew a little bit about america and its military warned us about the storm clouds gathering on the horizon. >> we must guard against unwarranted influence by the military-industrial complex. the potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. we must never let this endanger our liberties or democratic processes. laura: dwight eisenhower saw the looming danger of a military that has grown so large and so powerful that it goes beyond its role that risks the values is charged to hold. ike would no doubt see our troops as the selfless, dedicated and brave people that
they are but what would he think about how our national security establishment has ballooned and about the billions of dollars lost annually, waste, fraud and abuse that marks the pentagon? traditionally and for good reason our military has been one of the most trusted groups in the united states but lately that has been changing. in 201870% of americans reported having a great deal of confidence in the military. 3 years later it is down to 56% with the largest among independents and republicans. why is this happening? undoubtedly our schools's anti-american curriculum is having some effect, then is the entertainment industry and big tech which are usually apologizing for america, that doesn't inspire patriotism but that's not the whole story. the fact of the matter is americans know despite trillions
and spending our military leadership hasn't won a major war out right since world war ii. americans see the rise of china and wonder why our politicians in general didn't see this coming a long time ago and prepare us for the reality of it coming. americans see heart-wrenching losses on american military and civilian personnel in iraq but no victory there. best equipped most advanced military in the world couldn't defeat the taliban in afghanistan after 20 years. i bet most don't know we spent somewhere around $88 billion or more to train the afghan military and police force but how many times did our military commanders appear before congress and insist that things are about to turn the corner. now that we are finally
withdrawing our troops from afghanistan we see the whole hard truth, none of worked. the soldiers, airmen, reservists didn't fail us, their leadership did. former president george w. bush believes biden's decision to pull out of america's longest war is premature. >> is it a mistake? >> i think it is. the consequences are going to be unbelievably bad. >> it is heartbreaking not only because of the suffering we leave behind but because we should have cut our losses there is ago. more americans died with hundreds of millions of dollars flushed down the drain. so if these trends continue it will have a terrible effect on military recruiting and funding. credibility will continue to
wayne and the pentagon will have the same competency rating as right now the cdc so think about this, china is preparing to take our allies don't i, down and aggressively promoting economic influence around the globe, but what keeps our top military leaders up at night? >> the job of the defense of defenses to keep america safe from our enemies but we can't do that if some of those enemies lie within our own ranks. >> biden's state department is staffed by big thinkers who downplay china's brutal crackdown on human rights as they decry our own track record in the us. the even invited the un to come in and grade their antiracism efforts. this is completely insane but again they are a bunch of self loving idiots, they are happiest when america is on her knees begging for approval and
cooperation from europe and others. our intelligence agencies also risk running into the same credibility buzz saw. remember obama's director of national intelligence jim clapper claimed they were not monitoring domestic communications and we found out they were. >> when i too to see if you could give me a yes or no answer to the question, does the nsa collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of americans? >> no, sir. it does not. not wittingly. >> and now you think of it as a pretext biden's white house is using a backdoor to get into your text messages. groups like the dnc are planning to engage fact checkers and work with fms carriers about what
they decide is misinformation about the vaccine. given the government's routine obfuscation on the monitoring of american citizens it shouldn't be surprising voters don't trust assurances made by intel or military chiefs today because if they are not using the pandemic to justify stripping you of your freedoms they are going to lean on january 6th. >> social media has become in many ways the key amplifier to domestic violence just as it is formal line foreign influence, the same things that attract people to it for good reasons are also capable of causing all kinds of harms we are interested to protect the american people against. to protect us from you, you make my skin crawl. if americans of a certain political bent start feeling unwelcome in their own country, if they are treated like
potential domestic terrorists, why should they continue to support increasing the pentagon or cia's budget every year? the fact that the us military is teaching critical race. all is all you need to know about how far leadership there has fallen. >> the issue of critical race. etc. i do think it is important actually for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read. i want to understand white rage and i'm white. i want to understand it. >> glad he clarified that he was white. does general really believe before president biden, the military was filled with raging kkk members? was white rage a problem in the army when obama was president? why did millie speak out about it back then? i don't think these generals in the intelligence big leagues have thought this through. because once they abuse the
public's trust, insult the public it is very difficult if not impossible to rebuild that trust. if evangelical christians or other traditionalists just steer clear of military service because they don't want their sons or daughters to be subjected to left-wing hectoring propaganda or be labeled extremists because they don't support transgender is a more something, what then? what will the military do then? the reason conservatives have always respected the military as they represent a certain american tradition. they didn't come across as political but now the left has its claws into the military just like they have their claws into institutions of higher learning, hollywood, go down the line. they want to turn the military into another faculty lounge. right now we have a national
defense apparatus, the pentagon and intel agencies that are spending in ordinate time and resources on satisfying the left and too little on the real threats bearing down on the united states mostly from china. let's not forget their ties to big tech and giant military contractors are huge ongoing problems, more on that in a moment. all republicans on the hill need to demand that our military leadership and intel officials return to their proper role and get out of politics. do some soul-searching because you are doing a massive amount of damage to your really important institution and then what happens when america faces a serious challenge to our security, what happens when we need national unity to prevail? that is the angle. joining me now or two men who take on two specific pieces, colorado congress and ken buck at space was lieutenant colonel matthew lowmeyer. let me start with you.
you are walking talking evidence of how this poisonous thinking could alienate members of the military or would be members of the military. tell us? >> thanks for having me. i speak for myself and not for the defense department. you are absolutely right that it is going to be difficult for both the american people as well as our servicemembers to maintain trust in this institution, the united states military that has traditionally garnered a lot of trust from both our servicemembers and the american people if we continue to push political ideology intended to be divisive. i'm speaking of critical race.. our military servicemembers who have been trained to be apolitical shoulder an unfair burden at the moment and that is
it is difficult to remain apolitical in an environment that is becoming hyperpoliticized. people of principle join our armed forces, they care about this country and when their principles are under attack they want to speak up, and you are labeled politically partisan for, you face a terrible dilemma that shouldn't exist in the armed forces. >> your demanding answers from the pentagon, as troubling as we laid out in the angle a. is dod officials playing footsie with big tech giants, mainly amazon. while they are negotiating billions of dollars in government contracts, why shouldn't every american be alarmed by these entities acting in such a manner?
>> every american should be alarmed. the problem is amazon is a monopoly and it is trying to monopolize contracts, the largest contract in history was put out by the defense department and amazon had a former employee and former consultant working for secretary mattis an secretary mattis met with jeff bezos, the chief executive officer of amazon, now we find out in emails that have just been revealed that that relationship was far too cozy and bring some fundamental questions about government contracts and how monopoly in the consumer cloud area is trying to monopolize the government cloud area. it is so dangerous because we saw what happened to parlor when these woke ceos want to punish a group that is actually treating
conservatives fairly, they can kick parlor off the platform. if we allow monopoly like amazon to control the government cloud contracts i think we will be in serious trouble. laura: speaking of the woke issue, air force academy professor was defending the critical race theory teaching in aurora column, crt help students identify the structural racism and inequality that has been endemic in american society and provides methods for deconstructing a -- oppressive beliefs, racism was ingrained in the system from the beginning, and the military still struggles with these issues. the air force isn't alone. i know you've heard from military men and women who are sharing their concerns, your reaction to those comments. >> i am surprised on a number of
levels. i'm surprised we've still got professors in academia specifically in service academies believe in marxist trash like critical race theory. second i'm surprised i can be fired for political partisanship for exposing the marxist lineage of ideas behind critical race. and opposing it while on the other hand others both in uniform and permanent professors at the air force academy are able to speak in efficacy for the teaching and face no consequences. is it politically partisan or not? on the one hand marxism is not a politically partisan issue. we should all unite around this common enemy that is seeking to undermine our traditional values, the founding documents, in fact the documents which our servicemembers for an oath to defend. critical race theory seems to undo all that because it is marxist. >> should one dollar of our tax
dollars go to teaching that trash in our military academy, yes or no? one dollar? >> know. laura: thank you. speaking of powerful agencies my next guest senator tom cotten is investigating raycoand oversees the training materials that yes, promote critical race theory. in a letter to the company's chairman title vi of the civil rights act ensures that no person in the us shall on the ground of race, color or national origin be subjected to discrimination or any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. joining me senator tom cotten of the senate armed services committee. the defense industry is no different from any of these other big corporations that are under enormous pressure to bow
down to the left on this but how much worse is it when us tax dollars are keeping a lot of these companies afloat to teach people to basically hate the country. >> this week in israeltheoin. i had an exchange with lockheed martin and i suspect if you probe in the major defense contractors you would find similar training materials. the fact that raytheoin's ceo said raytheoin is not investing in that. sadly sadly i think he's right about that but that is not a defense of raytheon, that's an indictment of corporate america. it is one thing with nonsense like this and turns people off from their sugary beverages. it is a different thing if the companies who are building the weapons and equipment to keep our troops safe and defend our
nation who get the lion's share of their revenues from american taxpayers doing these things. laura: i want to bring up something of all the disturbing things i've seen over the last 3 days, tony blinken, the secretary of state is continuing this biden habit of either bashing america as racist on the world stage, apologizing for america, he tweeted last night that responsible nations must not shrink from scrutiny of their human rights record, they should be transparent with the attempt to grow and do better. that is why i am announcing a formal indication on contemporary forms of racism to visit the us. we are inviting the un to come into conduct some, quote, investigation afterwards they are going to trash is andy cuevas, tresses and give a pass
to countries like china. >> totally pathetic. tony blinken like president biden is putting a kick me sign an uncle sam's back, they should say pack your bags and head to china where china is committing genocide against religious and ethnic minorities, where they are engaged in the systematic sterilization of minority women, or barring that the systematic rape of them so they produce in chinese to say nothing of what they've done to hong kong and christians were trying to worship god in their homes throughout china, that is where the un should be focusing on human rights abuses, they should not be telling the united states and it is disgraceful that president biden and tony blinken have asked them to do so. >> doesn't this affect our national security? the secretary of state, by
allowing this to happen on us soil with the un and their track record on human rights, looking the other way on north korea and cuba and obviously china? how does this help our national security back to my angle? >> doesn't help us at all, the united nations often has things like cuba and north korea sitting on the human rights council. it is another way to undermine the confidence the american people have in our government that they were up to such nonsense, like teaching critical race theory in the military when you are telling our young soldiers the most important thing about them is the color of their skin, some races are terribly privileged and others are inherently victimized, that is not something they took an oath to defend. recruiting rates fall and retention rates fall as well. jillian: this will help our diplomacy big time.

>> laura: when democrats say they care about protecting minority rights, well, they are lying. the only one laura: the democrats say they care about protecting minority rights their lying. the only one thing really care abouts the ones who vote democrat. those illegally crossing the us-mexico border wearing biden please let us insurance come on in. what about those with legitimate asylum claims like the millions of cubans living under a repressing communist regime. i will let alejandra mayorkas tell you. >> allow me to be clear. if you take to the sea you will not come to the united states. any migrant intercepted at sea, regardless of their nationality will not be permitted to enter the united states. >> could the real issue be the
cuban-americans overwhelmingly support republican ideas? you bet. it is not just cubans. asian americans are increasingly being denied minority status because of their ability to succeed at the highest levels of american society. our next guest has just written a book that posits asian americans prove that critical race. cannot be true. joining us now is the author of an inconvenient minority, the attack on asian american excellence and the fight for meritocracy. your reaction to this constant emailing over the last few days in washington about the need to protect minority rights, you are the texas representative as they figure proclaiming they are the only real safeguards left of minority voting rights, and you say? >> asian americans are the
inconvenient minority because they come into this country with nothing, no special privileges. in my book and inconvenient minority they still succeed in this country, they disapprove critical race. and shed light. harvard discriminates against asian americans. that is how successful they are, how successful they have become. >> you a controversy around education today in washington dc, fairfax county they are saying a high-performing school, that high-performing school, very big asian population in the school enrollment they want to change the standard of the school so merit doesn't rule the day anymore. they want to make it so that merit doesn't really count. what does that tell you and how does that hurt a minority in the united states?
>> it hurts asian americans because now asian americans can't, even though they were card they are not treated on the basis of hard work with the theme of your show is national security and i say this is a national security issue because you need if you want to compete with china in the tech war you need the best and the brightest in the best schools. we have these elite schools like harvard abdicating their responsibility to admit the best and brightest just because of their race. imagine not only how unfair that is now that is detrimental to our national security and our technology. >> they will actually invite actual chinese from china, that's not a problem. just the asians in this country who are loyal to america. why don't we see some changes in
the asian voting because that has been surprising to a lot of people over the years. congratulations on the book. races infected the debate over voting rights laws all across the country and also revealed ignorance of democrat leaders, most sane people see the texas democrats bring their state is a joke and anti-democratic, the left views it is quite historic. >> in 1867 frederick douglass appealed to the congress, in 2021 the texas legislature came to washington dc. >> okay was an actress, john lewis was an activist, sojourner truth was an activist, there's nothing wrong with activism to push the levers of power to do the right thing and i think that is what texas democrats and civil rights leaders are calling for. >> the threat to have you all arrested when you return to texas, and supposedly to track
you down like the fugitive slave act. laura: joining me is cynthia garrett, founder of cynthia garrett ministries. we played some of kamala last night but i'm interested in your thoughts on her specifically invoking frederick douglass in this little drama. >> i'm not here to be speechless but i'm speechless. i have been speechless all day about this. to compare frederick douglas to the bozos that left their jobs in texas to serve the people that elected them as if there's some threat to the nation because the texas legislature wants to pass a voting security bill, they want to protect the rights but frederick douglass and people like him died for. all of us have the right to vote, for a voice to be heard to the voting process fairly. the problem here is so complex
and multilevel that my head is been blowing up all day. frederick douglas said, one of my favorite quotes, the life of a nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful and virtuous, there's nothing honest about what these democratic the elected officials are doing, nothing truthful about what any of them are doing and nothing virtuous about this. you cannot turn this into a voting rights act. the voting rights act of 1965 was strongly opposed by democrats and they have been fighting and hiding behind what is really going on since slavery to be honest with you, since slavery into. this isn't a race issue, this is an issue of i want to go to a poll, i want to get my id because i'm not dead, i am alive. i want to vote legally. i want you to know i vote illegally, anyone who loves america, anyone running from this issue wants to protect their right to operate outside
the law, it is that simple and i don't know how americans aren't up in arms and in the civil war over this. laura: when you hear people like al sharpton and others claim that having poll watchers who can see what is happening when they are counting the votes means they don't want you to vote, it is not even allowed under the rules to get close to people voting but you can watch the process unfold from meaningful distance but that means you don't want people to vote, we're supposed to listen to our sharpton after all these years of fraud from him? it is insane. >> we have been blessed with a myriad of horrible black leadership for years. i don't understand.
it is like among black people we know it, we can talk about it as african americans but when anybody else talks about it, it is a problem. i don't know what we are hiding. we need to be calling all these guys to the mat. we need to have great issue with the leadership we have the writing is on the wall in texas. whenever these bozos decide to go back and do their job i hope that the people that voted for them -- laura: vote them out. great to see you tonight and you are not speechless after all. in coming up, emmy nominations are out and wait until you see what political heavyweights made the cut, the white house is drafting a pop singer for a purpose. raymond arroyo has it, seen and unseen next.
emmys. they look more like the wokeys. >> there are nominees here for outstanding voiceover performance julie andrews and seth mcfarland made the cut but so did that renowned character actress stacy abrams. she was nominated for one minute and 7 seconds voiceover in a black episode where she stretched incredibly playing herself. >> i'm so happy to be talking to you about male info. >> i thought we were talking about my campaign. >> running for office is mostly fundraising, to meet the big money you're up against you will need community support. >> i can't imagine you pulling it off. >> i was looking for more of a peptalk. >> you've lost weight and we need everyone to vote early. the important thing is making sure your voice is heard. >> i don't understand how this
can be considered a performance, she's saying what she always says which begs the question what is driving this nomination? abrams illustrated's governors race, was nominated for an academy award for a documentary on voting. politics should never be the leading value. it should be talent. that is what audiences expect, the academy should feel the same way. you were robbed remember a few years ago you performed on the simpsons and played the character of a therapist. remember this? >> you thought our only option was to break up. >> i never said that. i told people who didn't belong together they shouldn't be together i would be out of a job. >> i must've dreamed that too. >> why don't you tell us more about this dream? >> all you need to know is marge and i have been completely turned around by it. >> you are going to have to do a little more, homer. >> that was so bad. >> they thought you were doctor
laura ingraham. stacy abrams wasn't the only amino many. in addition to getting awards for limiting family size prince harry and megan markel were nominated for that tell-all interview with oprah winfrey. they cannot the not for outstanding hosted nonfiction series was given pushback from the royals i'm not sure you can call his nonfiction. this is only the beginning. marco is producing an animated series celebrating great women in history. you can be sure queen elizabeth will probably not be part of that series. laura: i thought stacy abrams's voice was computer-generated. i didn't think that was actually her speaking. that is why i was shocked. she sounded like a computer speaking. simpsons just for the record. the white house is turning to a
young popstar to try to encourage teens to get the covid vaccination. olivia rodrigo came to meet with biden and fauci and to record some tsa -- given biden's resistance photo id i was surprised he invited someone so comfortable with drivers licenses. >> i'm olivia rodrigo. yourself, your friends and your family. >> i can't even hear it. >> they this could somebody get a microphone in her face? according to the cdc 38% of people 12 to 29 are not vaccinated. the story of young men's hearts in flaming and the low deaths among young people of course they aren't getting vaccinated. it will take more than a drivers license. to >> she is an adorable girl, gorgeous girl, global popstar
but there is breaking news on the britney spears conservatorship front. there were series of free britney rallies in dc and la. ♪♪ hey hey hello ♪♪ conservatorship is got to go ♪♪ hey hey ho ho ♪♪ conservatorship has got to go ♪♪ >> they must be happy at the hearing today, the judge allowed britney to choose her own attorney after she spent millions on her court appointed attorney. the big news is her plea to the court she said over the phone i would like to charge my father with conservatorship abuse. i want to press charges against my father today. this is the beginning of the end of this conservatorship and after the millions of her own money that has been used to keep her in this lockdown maybe it is time. she tonight instagram herself doing cartwheel so she's very happy but strange she wants to keep the personal conservatorship in place. that is odd.
laura: that is one scandal i haven't been on top of but i know you are on the important stories. >> i'm doing it closely for you. laura: good to see you tonight. south africa deteriorates into chaos, a nagging question lingers. could happen here? larry logan will be with us next with a warning. stay there.
♪ ♪ >> laura: what is happening in south africa? things have deteriorated, total laura: what is happening in south africa? things of security, looting, violence that consumed the country for the better part of the past week so what is driving this? there are a lot of theories out there, some are saying it is just politics, it all started when the former south african president, jacob zuma, started a 15 month long prison sentence for contempt of court. app supporters believe he's a victim of a political witchhunt & is a man of the people, a populist particularly in rural communities.
second the. is draconian covid lockdowns are partially to blame. south africa's economy was hit by the deepest recession on record, citizens came to resist the officials keeping them shut in, there were protests and finally the theory that there is a lot of resentment that comes along with racial reorganization, the south african national congress postapartheid has tried to write old wrongs by redistributing wealth and land. does that sound eerily similar to something like the reparations push here? joining the south african native larry logan, host of fox nation's laura logan has no agenda. a lot of americans are not aware what is happening in south africa. i've been lucky enough to travel there many times and i have seen this deterioration over the last 10 or 12 years or longer since i've been going there. what do we need to know about this?
>> many south africans are shocked the speed with which this is spreading and it is worse in two provinces what is the home province of former president jacob zuma and i've been speaking to people there, food is running low, this is been going on for 5 days and stores are burning down, there's no milk, no bread, people are not allowed to have any fuel for their cars so this is a particularly distressing situation for many people, so many killed at this point, people asking where is the police, where's the army and they're going to deploy more soldiers, there are very worrying reports of this -- a racial element being introduced into this. is a community that lives just outside durban where jacob zuma is from a number of reports fanning the flames of racial
tension and violence. some of the echoes of critical race. and awoke agenda that have proliferated all over the world that we are paying the price for big tech, all these people who are able to set the agenda in any country they want where people can spread this message and this divisive politics in south africa is no exception. >> there is a marxist element at play here in other words. >> obama's ambassador south africa, when obama's are minted and he came home he became the president of the open society foundation and when he was in south africa he was very vocal about reparations. he was one of the people who was pushing and encouraging publicly to the south african government to take land away from white people particularly white farmers.
30,000 white farms in south africa feed those people and other people across southern africa so when you take that land away and it is not used to farm anymore you starve your people, people saw that in neighboring zimbabwe. is a radical interplay and nobody can tell at this point. impossible to say how much this is involvement south african mediators quickly turned to looking at who is driving this and whether there are other forces. there are eerily similar echoes here. there's a whole ideology with all these affinity groups about joining a moment of a mass movement a revolution and that is what many people are looking for. >> we are not going to hear that anywhere else tonight and china is hiding a smelly secret, the last flush explains.
