9:10 pm
afghan a stand might feel like a world away from america, but there is no shortage of problems at home under biden's administration. earlier this month, biden announced a number of vaccine testing and mask mandates, which is proving to be the latest american political spac connected to the pandemic effecting around 2 thirds of the u. s. workforce. it wasn't long before the cries that biden is violating people's freedom of choice, were heard. 24 republican state attorney generals, or even threatening lawsuits really disruption divides the country. it increases the division in terms of vaccination when we should all be together along the campaign trail biden promised to make the country southern border a more humane place. instead, thousands of migrants are living in horrific condition. like under the del rio
9:11 pm
international bridge, the immigration crisis is getting worse as thousands more asylum seekers come knocking at the us his door. and to top it all off. biden's approach hasn't changed much from that of the trump administrations. kids are still being put in cages and despite biden's many promises to would be green card holders, many migrants are being deported back home without getting their chance at asylum. ah ah. ready with a track record like biden's and not even a whole year in office. it's no wonder over half of america thinks the country is on the wrong track. no embarrassing emails have sat as to which don't make good
9:12 pm
reading for the u. s. presidents in bottled son hunter by it, and they revealed that he asked for a $2000000.00 annual salary to help and look billions of dollars of live in assets for his and under the obama administration. he is on his english. donald hunter biden made a reputation for himself of living out of the wildest fantasies of a hard core rock and roll up. but to maintain this well brother, untamed lifestyle, it costs a pretty penny. and a new email leak proposed to shed light on just one of hunter biden's attempted households. he apparently offered to help with recovering some $15000000000.00 in libya as foreign funds frozen by the obama administration per phone conversation. i met with number 2 son. he wants to per year retainer plus plus plus success fees. he wants to have his own people. it can be close circle of people for
9:13 pm
confidentiality. so this is part of an email exchange between 2 democratic party donors with business interest in the middle east, dated year 2015, the, to very much interested in getting their hands on more market that the overseas coffers were apparently mewling whether joe biden 2nd born could pull his weight and deliver his positives. ah, he is chairman of you and will food program, son of number 2, who has libya file access the state treasury, business partner, secretary of state john forbes, kerry son. and since he travels with dad, he is connected everywhere in europe and asia. when we look at duffy and libby investment or 40 had money frozen. he said he has access to highest level in china . he can help there simply, wow, man, good kick, open almost any door upstairs which makes him an extremely valuable asset. so
9:14 pm
wonder what they had to say against using his services. his negative is, are that he is alcohol lick, drug addict, kicked out of us army for cocaine. chasing low class is constantly needs money, liquidity problems, and many more headaches. the man has a lawyers degree was the son of then vice president. he makes millions yearly and still his reputation rests firmly on being a regular with low class focus. alas, though this little libyan scheme never came to fruition, apparently due to reasons well unknown. this latest email leak on the other hand, did send quite a few ripples. nothing to see your folks totally legit. we're not getting many more answers, but suddenly we're getting a lot more questions at the same time that vinyl standing is collapsing across the board. inflation is out of control. to put in perspective the last family member of
9:15 pm
a democrat president who lobbied on behalf of libya, billy carter only received 220 files and for his efforts, joe biden has been adamant that they have never discussed his sons clients. yet, still nepotism is the word on many people's lips. this is going to go down the memory hole for most of the mainstream media. and to be honest from a pure actually knows perspective from a, you know, an opposition point of view of your republican watching history, or you pray on the downfall of joe biden. you don't want people to be talking about this too much right now. things aren't going very, very well for joe biden. it's a total cluster in congress, which is supposed to be his strength among among strength. there is a seemingly weakly new disasters on the southern border. inflation is a real problem, and we're probably going to see yet another coven waive come through. and that's really been what's driving his poll numbers down, up till now. so as far as hunter biden doing hunter biden things,
9:16 pm
let alone things that happened so many years ago. if you're a public and that's fine, it's something to make me me about. but you mostly want to be focusing on any of the issues that i just laid out because the american people really care about them . those are kitchen table in a way that 100 isn't fishy, as you in general, assembly will hear from a delegate from august on, but it won't be tolerable, requested representative. instead taking the phone monday will be the representative from the government. that was also the last month i was senior correspondent moran county of reports now from campbell. but what the office of the un secretary general said is what has been expected in line. but with what had been expected ever since we found out that the taliban has requested that they change. i've got his dad's representative at the you went to someone who they appointed. but the you where these, we all know a slow moving bureaucratic machine at the best of times. and in this instance,
9:17 pm
with me a weeks to go until the us general assembly would things very hectic there. it is unlikely that the diplomat and the council that they'll go tripping over themselves in order to approve the tattered buds request. so the situation is such that the person speaking for of got to start on stage before the entire world will be someone who has almost no influence of the events of god. this time it will be someone who was appointed by the former government by a president who fled the country who resigned and whose government promptly collapsed in the matter of weeks facing a taliban onslaught. but, but it is a very difficult choice. it is a political minefield for the web because obviously they want to send the right signature signals. they don't want to get rushing over themselves in order to approve the taliban request. especially given that
9:18 pm
a lot of many countries around the world are very angry with the taliban right now, because they had appealed that was an international effort aimed at the tile about directed towards the asking them to make the government as inclusive as possible. the government that the taliban announced me a weeks ago again, was very hard line filled with terror released individuals. it was a message we won and we'll do whatever we want. on the other hand, people understand that the reality is that the taliban has seized the entirety of, of gotta stop. it control more of a gotten started more thoroughly than had been done in more than half a century. so it is vital that the international community engages with the taliban, but on their terms, they don't want to send the signal to other warlords and fanatical organizations, religious organizations around the world. that force of arms can get you and to the actual recognition,
9:19 pm
they bought the taliban to show that they are mature enough to be represented on the world stage. they must also work with them to make sure that the humanitarian situation here doesn't get any worse than it already is with more than 10000000 people on the verge of starvation. alternately, it does seem that on the 27th of september, there will be a somewhat ridiculous seeing that the un where the person representing of got to start will have almost new ties, new political current does to it. he will be a goose of the former regime sunday will say german via has take their country into a new chapter as they decide who will replace chancellor angle of michael ashley leaves office up to 16 years and power. the

9:21 pm
curtain on a political korea of over 3 decades coming to office in 2005. she's the 3rd longest serving german chancellor of old time, only her mentor helmet. cole held the position longer in postwar, germany, anglo myrtle. how the chief, something that most politicians happened at the time of leaving office. she has remained popular with a large chunk of voters. no small achievement. when you look at the challenges she's had to face me, germany weathered the financial storm that began with the collapse of layman brothers back in 2008 better than most countries. a 480000000000, euro bailout for the banks and managing to keep unemployment figures from spike and to high saw angle america reelected in 2009 then came the collapse of grease and the fear that could never pay any of its awful debts.
