shoppers also reporting on social media that paper towels, dog food, other household items were in short supply. reminiscent of the days during the early pandemic when shoppers were buying in bulk before lockdowns. let's hope that doesn't happen again. that does it for us on "fox business tonight." "the evening edit" starts right now. elizabeth: u.s. allies around the world now slamming the white house over afghanistan and their false talking points. this is unprecedented. british parliament in an emergency session calls it quote shameful. top german lawmakers calls this, quote, the greatest debacle nato has ever seen. calls for biden's entire foreign policy and defense team to resign. this, multiple democrat led senate committees will investigate what is being called, biden's quote catastrophic failure to evacuate
6:01 pm
up to 15,000 americans trapped behind taliban lines. allies are trapped too. again biden doubles down. the white house tells americans over in afghanistan, we cannot guarranty your security. with us tonight staff sergeant joey jones, senator marsha blackburn, former obama advisor bret bruen, mike huckabee, scott pari, deroy murdock and texas attorney general ken paxton. we have pictures of the taliban brutal crackdown. they are seizing people's passports. they have seized u.s. aircraft. the mounting pushback against the biden team's fault spin. including this, government watchdog data the president and his team inflated actual afghan troop strength by almost double in order to defend biden's exit out of afghanistan. d.c. insiders talk openly that under president biden it has
6:02 pm
been chaos in afghanistan, crime on our streets, border chaos, rising gas prices and inflation. stocks down again today as the fed warns it will stop buying government debt. there is hope. we've got it. now four separate incidents of border patrol getting shots fired at them from across the border from mexico. we have got the story. former president trump is weighing in on everything. we have to show you what he has to say. big tech double standards. they're accused of helping the taliban and its coup while censoring conservatives here. al qaeda mocking president bide on social media. yeah, we're there. we're taking on growing number of democrat led cities reversing their defund the police pushed a mitting they were wrong. i'm elizabeth macdonald. "the evening edit" starts right now. elizabeth: welcome to the show.
6:03 pm
you're watching the fox business network. we begin with graphic images coming out of afghanistan. taliban soldiers firing at crowds in kabul, detaining people in the street, taking passports, blocking people from leaving kabul airport. joining us senator marsha blackburn, armed services and retired marine sergeant joey jones. i'm grateful to have you both on. senator, how can be it thousands of americans were stranded behind taliban lines with no clear to rescue them? how did that happen? >> it is inconceivable this could have happened. this administration has been so ill-prepared for this. we've been asking foreweeks in different hearings. i even put some of it up on my social media today for an exit strategy. how do we make certain we exit all of our u.s. citizens, our nato partners, our afghani partners before you hand this
6:04 pm
over? and of course it didn't have to be this way. if president biden had stayed with the plan that president trump and secretary pompeo had laid out, conditions-based, threat assessment-based, you would not have seen this happen and our allies and partners, our nato allies had agreed to this. but instead as of last night i know the president hadn't talked to any other world leaders. they're frustrated with him just like the american people and a lot of veterans are frustrated with him. a lot of our men and women in uniform who are going to have to redeploy to clean up this mess. elizabeth: we hear you. >> yes. upsetting. elizabeth: it is just, it is shocking and reckless. finish your thought. go ahead, senator. >> it is so reckless and there was an exit strategy but to turn this over to the taliban to let
6:05 pm
them take control of the embassy, to not give warning to all of these ngo employees, people that have served our u.s. embassy, have worked alongside our troops and we have been working tirelessly to get people out. then we hear today that the liaison office for the house and the senate, the department of state liaison office is closed. and we're trying to help people find a way to get to the airport and get out. elizabeth: it is congress stepping in, sergeant, joey jones? what is your reaction when you see what is going on? how can it be we're stranding thousands of americans behind taliban lines. president saying troops will stay, troops will stay after the deadline of august 31st until all americans are out. so we're supposed to trust the taliban who is saying "death to america" and shooting at american and women and children? >> yeah. there is a good chance on the
6:06 pm
20th anniversary of september 11th we'll be in a standoff with the taliban trying to rescue americans that are effectively stranded in a country that is ran by our most effective enemy in the last 20 years. and that is solely lies on the shoulders of joe biden and his administration. not to say that the taliban ultimately controlling afghanistan solely lies on their shoulders but the way we've done this in leaving, these many americans, not just afghans who have helped us but american citizens. we had one on "fox & friends" this morning. that is one of probably thousands right now that just don't know how to get to the airport without intercepting the taliban and possibly losing their life and paperwork along the way. it is a dire situation. when you have the state department and defense department saying two different things about that exactly, what they called the gauntlet to get into the airport? that is a big deal.
6:07 pm
something that president biden needs to reconcile. >> yes. elizabeth: you know, senator, here's the thing, the president was vice president under obama and obama said we're going to go down to 10,000 troops from 100,000 in 2014. he was vice president for eight years. he was on senate foreign relations. he can't play the blame game because he has been for this so long. look at jake sullivan. >> [inaudible]. there are americans and afghan allies who remain there, will u.s. troops stay until everyone is out or will they leave? >> so i'm not going to comment on height calls. i will stay focused on the task at hand which is getting as many people out as rapidlying a possible. we will take that day by day. elizabeth: okay. enough with the blase talking points. this isn't playing with the american people. senator, people are done, they don't want this idiotic,
6:08 pm
patently false talking points pouring out of the administration. you will have a hearing. senate foreign relations will have a hearing. pelosi saying the biden team will testify as early as next week. is that going to happen? >> well what we need right now is action and there are 6,000 troops that are going to be on the ground there. people cannot get to the airport. they need to have a plan to get people to the airport so that they can exit the country. now, i don't know how far they're going to be able to push that perimeter out. i don't know the participation of iran or russia or china in all of this mix that is taking there but i have talked to so many people that are military or veterans and elizabeth, they are saying this entire national security and dod team needs to go because something went terribly wrong here. they did not have an exit
6:09 pm
strategy. they had a date on the calendar. the taliban had said for years. you have the clock, we have the time. and they had an exit strategy planned for us and getting us out of there but we didn't have a plan for how we were going to get our people, our citizens, our partners, our equipment out of the country. this is truly a disgrace. and president biden needs to own this. instead he is out here doing a covid workshop today when we have americans who may be losing their lives at the hands of the taliban and there is no acceptance of responsibility and people are done, so done with these talking points coming from jake sullivan and jen psaki. elizabeth: jake sullivan is the guy who was pushing trump-russia collusion. reports sergeant joey jones the
6:10 pm
biden team ignored cia, intelligence warnings that basically afghanistan was collapsing into a terror strong hold. you will see an abc interview with president biden i didn't make mistakes, i didn't see chaos coming when he has been in the government since the nixon administration. want your thoughts on this, senator biden old comments are coming out to haunt him. mid '70s, i'm getting sick of hearing about our moral obligation in vietnam. "atlantic" magazine is reporting he was asked about the brutalization of girls in afghanistan. he said we don't have to worry about that. nixon and kissinger got away with that. there is a mind-set at play here that people may not have understand or known about with president biden. what do you think? >> i think when someone tells you who they are believe them. president biden has been consistent for 11 years you no on his position in afghanistan. so i'm not surprised he wants to pull out at all costs there. is probably a political decision here if i lose the war let's do
6:11 pm
it for the midterms so i run for re-election. i'm sure that played into this. the optics, we learned optics of keeping kabul letting go of bagram played into that. getting more troops home earlier to fulfill a campaign promise. just understand where we are right now today. there were three press conferences, state department, top of the do and the president himself. no one can sit here with a straight face say to the families of americans in afghanistan or the troops in afghanistan feel any safer or know anymore about the safety of their loved ones. that is malpractice on our top leader. that is malfeasance in the biden administration. i pray for those family members and people over there because their safety is absolutely in jeopardy today because of bad planning if any planning at all. >> yeah. elizabeth: sergeant, do you agree with the senator that their teams, foreign policy and defense teams have to go, they have to step down, do you agree
6:12 pm
with the senator? >> i think the senator would know about i was. i was an e-6 on the ground. i can tell you small unit leaders ones i look for. i never meant a general i believe in enough to go to war for a while. that is the sad part. secretary of defense or chairman of the joint chiefs, what i heard today was a lot of spin. i heard a lot of political speak today. that is not what i want to hear from a general and secretary of defense. i'm disappointed to say the least. >> he misjudged it. we own it. here is the plan for getting everybody out. this is how we're going to do it. god bless these men and women in uniform and may protect all of these american citizens that are out there across, across afghanistan with no way at this point, no information on how to get to the kabul airport. just told to shelter in place or try to make your way to the airport. elizabeth: that they can't guarranty their safety.
6:13 pm
this is shocking. it is disturbing. senator marsha blackburn, staff sergeant joey jones. senator, we appreciate you coming on. sergeant joey jones, thanks for your service to our country. great to have you on. up next former white house official under president obama, he is bret bruin, that biden must fire jake sullivan as mounting pushback from around the world against the biden and administration for putting out false spin and talking points on their role in afghanistan's collapse. you're watching "the evening edit" on fox business. >> you can go back to jimmy carter with the hostages. we all thought that was a great embarassment. we were pulled out of that by ronald reagan. this is many, many times worse and you're dealing with thousands and thousands of americans and others that are stranded and very dangerously, really stranded in afghanistan. ♪.

6:18 pm
>> absolutely. this is actually something that i pointed out for several months that biden has a process problem on his national securitythe infn from afghanistan is just a illustration a tragic problem ad at the end of the day as i mentioned in the article that decision comes down to the president as national security advisor. he is the one who has got to tell the president, sir, i understand your objective, let me tell you how you get there smartly, strategically, and most importantly safely. elizabeth: okay but you know was vice president under barack obama. in 2014 president barack obama said we will draw down our presence in afghanistan from 100,000 troops to 10,000 troops.
6:19 pm
so does the president, doesn't the president, he has been in office since the nixon administration. he has been on senate foreign relations. he knows what is going on in afghanistan. it collapse into a terror strong hold with 20 terror groups with al qaeda and isis. how does he not know that? >> you know, liz, the world has changed rapidly especially in the last several years and you have to have people in the room, in the situation room who understand the changes, who understand the dynamics on the ground. what we've seen unfortunately in the biden administration, both with the nsc and state de are a lot of political appointees, a lot of people who served with with me on president obama, a lot of people who spent time on the campaign but not folks who have the relevant experience, who have the relationships in some cases with these counterparts and they didn't get heard in this process. elizabeth: you know what it is? reporters are done with the topspin.
6:20 pm
our allies in the uk and germany are done with the topspin. we heard that today. they're done with the self-righteous stubborn vanity of this administration and their talking points. let's listen to this. >> yeah but so there is any protecting power, wide open for anyone wants to go in there, regardless whether built-up barricaded area or not, you basically just took off and left it? >> that is not my question. my question are you planning any transportation for people who need to get to the airport? are you considering a safe zone around the airport, to make it easy for people to get -- >> we have doing everything we can in a challenging and dynamic security environment. >> is that a yes or no question. elizabeth: it's a yes or no question. you know what i mean? it is breathtaking stupid pen does vanity you can do a word salad, everybody will be happy with your world salad.
6:21 pm
at the end of the day people know what is going on in afghanistan. we've been at this for 20 years, bret, what do say? >> liz. jackie: i'm not coming at this for a partisan standpoint. i voted for joe biden. i wish him and his team all the success but they have got to level with the american people. they don't acknowledge what went wrong they're not going to fix it ahead of the next crisis. this is the really the point i've been driving at for several months whether on the border issues, refugees, russia, we just have seen too many unforced errors. they have got to fix the process. elizabeth: you know we hear you. instead of teaching the troops about white privilege and beating up on america all the time, you know, we need an american president who does believe in american idealism and american exceptionalism instead of going negative all the time because now you have former defense secretary leon panetta saying this is a national security threat. we lost our partnerships in afghanistan to get information to protect our country. let's watch senator john kennedy here.
6:22 pm
watch this. >> it was the biggest terrorist victory since 9/11. jihadists who want to hurt this country and its people all over the world are reinvigorated today. president biden chose to withdraw from afghanistan but there is no reason it had to be so chaotic. we all saw it. the panic, the fear, the chaos, the abandonment of equipment, scrambling to, to destroy classified documents and unclassified documents. thousands of americans and our allies trapped behind taliban lines. no plan for the refugees. elizabeth: okay, bret, i'm so grateful you came on but you see after the fact cleaning up that is being done now. now reports that the white house is going after afghanistan's central bank, nearly 10 billion

would defund the police america would be like a suburb. it doesn't look that way as a matter of fact. they're able to see as the bodies pile up as crime rates skyward, homicide rates are climbing all of that. it is very hard to pretend this thing is working when you have actually bodies piling up. people are getting beaten up, their property stoleen shoplifting galore. they're looking at polls. the polls show american people take this very seriously. one poll by the american police situation 70% of voters believe crime is out of control. one poll by "washington post" 59% of voters believe crime is serious problem. that poll loss shows that joe biden's job approval on crime is all the way down at 38%. so democrats certainly can read polls. they can read crime statistics. i think they're seeing as a consequence this is a total loser of a policy. now they're going backwards to say we need more cops and get cops back out on the street. i welcome them back to the world
6:48 pm
of reality. elizabeth: deroy, why do the loudest voices in the room get to hurt everybody else? we're talking about the loudest voices said defund the police. they got their way. shown proven they're wrong. effectively admitting they're wrong. washington, d.c. mayor muriel bowser. new york mayor bill de blasio. leaders in atlanta, seattle, portland, oakland, california. why do loudest voices in the room get a fraction of the vote get to dominate here and hurt everybody smells. >> that is the difference between the very loud minority and the silent majority. the silent majority has been pretty quiet about this as all the mayhem has been unfolding. the minority people, not as large of a number, certainly ones out in the streets, screaming, yelling, hollering for defund the police. we saw a year ago after the death of goering george floyd,
6:49 pm
they were in the streets and a lot a lot of politicians buckled under pressure. people want law and order are not in the streets, making noise, yanking down statues. that is reality of political affairs. even the far left can't ignore this any longer. elizabeth: seems like all about, you know, it is going away. critics say demands to defund the police, we're not really hearing that much anymore. it sounds increasingly unhinged when violent crime is rising. you're right to point out the polls. democrat candidates in swing states and districts are now trying to distance themselves from this but you know, remember, you around i talked about this, democrat national convention. they hardly talked about crime and violence and rioting. talked more about defund the police. both president and vice president talked about and supported it. many top democrats supported it too. in the house and in the senate. >> yeah.
6:50 pm
i think that's true. certainly a year ago, when the democrats had their convention, literally was no mention of the rampant crime, the riots, attacks, people killed during the george floyd riots. one thing we have with so many cell phone cameras, security cameras, we have footage of all the things like we're seeing right now. it becomes impossible here in new york city, couple days ago somebody was taking money out of a atm and someone attacked him with a hatchet of all things down on the wall street area. you can't pretend this is not going on when people see with their own eyes that is bloodshed of democrat policies. democrat party, has revealed itself to be the party of crime and i think they're going to pay a serious price at the polls for this and they should. elizabeth: deroy murdoch, come back soon. great to have you on. good to see you. up next former president trump now slamming president biden on both afghanistan and the chaos at the border.

6:55 pm
paxton, it's great to have you back on. i would like you to listen first to this from former president trump i would like your reaction to the soundbite, watch. >> you have the worst people in the world their indian their jails into our country, this is like the southern border but it's handled even worse, nobody handled the southern border worst than him we had the most secure border and now we have by far the worst border we've ever had. afghanistan is the exact same thing. to think of this we have a military, i got it reduced to 2500 soldiers and they were doing a good job, it was fine it was a smaller force. elizabeth: i'm not sure it was fine but what you reaction to former president talking about both the border in afghanistan saying the president has botched both, what do you say. >> it's pretty obvious that he's right we never had this many
6:56 pm
people crossing the border and we've never had this much trouble with the cartel and here we are as soon as the president starts changing things in afghanistan, we end up with a disaster on our hands and you can see the video footage of what happened and it is not good. elizabeth: the president's claim that it was highly unlikely the taliban would override afghanistan, the spotlight of and how he has been equally unconfident all along of his handling of the southern border his approval ratings are going down. you see the washington post and abc news only a third approve of his handling of the situation at the border. multiple polls show this. >> i don't think i could've imagined and most americans could've imagined it being handled in the worst and getting as bad as it is, it's not getting better it's getting worse month by month, june we had over 200,000 apprehensions and as time goes on we'll see the consequences of the fentanyl coming in and the human
6:57 pm
trafficking, it'll be all over the country along with the spread of covid. elizabeth: you and i have been talking about the border for five years the president claimed in the spring nothing has changed with what's going on at the border when asked about the search he claims it happens every single solitary year, it does not happen every year the 2 million people try to cross or apprehended, it doesn't happen every year that we have a 21 year high in crossings, that is wrong people are sick of the topspin it's a result of the president canceling trumps border policies like remaining mexico. it is about homeland security had to expand the y axis on his chart to capture the record number of illegal border crossings. your thoughts about the president top spinning this. >> is just not telling the truth. you can talk to border patrol agents in the one they pushed out the door, he told me he has been trying to institute things that work and he had no conversations about things that
6:58 pm
would work, he was told to stop doing things that were effective, clearly divided administration wants this to happen and then they lie about the numbers you have to go back and look at the numbers from one year ago today and they are massively worse, nothing we've overseen before. elizabeth: talk to us about why now for incidents in about a weeks time, this is disturbing stuff where border patrol has been shot out from across the border from mexico, this happened twice in texas and twice in california. what is happening here? >> the cartels are emboldened because there being encouraged by the biden administration. they are making so much money and i predict you will see more and more with more drugs and more crime and we will end up having people die, not just from covid but from being shot. we have tremendous risk on the border but it'll spread
6:59 pm
throughout the united states, that's my prediction if we don't do something drastic to stem the tide of what the biden the administration has done. elizabeth: who was going to get shot? what are you worried about their. >> i'm worried about people living along the border in our border patrol they're not allowed to do their job these days and i think the cartel is making more and more money, billions that there gonna be more emboldened to take chances and to make people pay the price if they don't like what's happening along the border because it certainly not our border anymore. larry: tell us quickly, give us a quick rundown of what's going on with border neighborhoods and communities. >> there being overrun with people coming across the border they don't know what to do with them, root responsible for education, law enforcement, healthcare the whole issue of covid in them being infected with a lot of people being transported to cities all over america including our cities without any knowledge from the public or the media about where there being sent. there being released.
