tv The Ingraham Angle FOX News August 24, 2021 12:00am-1:00am PDT
distancing -- laura: awesome show. the amazing president biden and his leadership is so impressive. from san francisco tonight, you don't have to go to afghanistan to see widespread suffering and despair or to witness a tragic breakdown in civil society. you can see that right here miles from multimillion dollar homes owned by the billionaire titans of the tech world. it has been a problem here for decades but the situation now is spiraling totally out of control. just a block from the major police precinct we saw people doing crack on the street and washing their clothes at a dirty wiki hydrant.
this once great american city, we are horrified at the taliban and terrorizing the people of afghanistan why are so many numb when our people are being terrorized here? it is a democrat engineered american tragedy but i the voters finally wising up? we are going to show you tonight will shock you but first the great unraveling is the focus of tonight's angle. the humiliation of america is unfolding before our eyes in dramatic fashion. our president is incapable or unwilling to do the basic task of his job from enforcing the border at home to protecting national security abroad. his policies have made america more dangerous, the basic cost-of-living is more expensive today, our people are more divided, he staffed his
administration with an assortment of radicals and incompetents from his homeland security secretary to his defense secretary we see nothing but examples of ineptitude and arrogance. the taliban is laughing at us, the corruption that plagues the pentagon and state department is staggering. is just a few of the lowlifes. first the pentagon which has a budget of over $700 billion somehow didn't realize the afghan army spent billions training would collapse in just 11 days, neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the joint chiefs could explain why they were and prepared. both should have been fired i said last week, president biden's people want you to believe the taliban can be trusted.
>> requiring us to keep the lines of communication open. we have checkpoints beyond the airport and was we have seen is this coordination has worked well in terms of allowing access and flow to continue. laura: despite spending two decades trying to build a functioning afghan government the state department was shocked when afghan president fled the country leaving us holding the bag. not that secretary of state tony blinken even remembers who that is. >> go back a week. i was on the phone with president karzai the day before when he was telling me his intent to fight to the death, next day he was gone. laura: newsflash. karzai hasn't been the afghan
president since 2014. that is our chief diplomat. third, our intelligence community which is supposed to be the most able and sophisticated in the world failed to see this coming. president biden epstein could have gotten better advice listening to this show the listening to the people who spent more time on the narrative of january 6th than our exit from afghanistan. the two elected officials in the white house, biden and harris, have little to no role at all in policymaking. harris is so unimportant that the biden oak center to southeast asia. this suggests president biden's aids think harris is not only useless during the crisis but a liability. i think that's the best decision they have made, president biden can't answer basic questions about extracting americans from
harm's way. >> i'm not going to talk about the tactical changes we are making. i don't want to get into details. >> because he doesn't know the details. our credibility and prestige is shot. the dems and the gop war hawks spent a lot of time trying to convince the voters that donald trump hurt america's reputation around the world. that was a lie. our enemies feared donald trump and our allies grudgingly respected him even if they didn't like him. they knew his priority was america first. but with biden and his cabinet they know it is america on her heels. does anyone know trust secretary blinken to negotiate with the chinese of the russians, of course not. anybody trust secretary austin and generally to organize a military operation that is more complex than the army-navy
football game? know. let's be clear. every major player on earth knows the us national security is in the hands of incompetent plunderers. they all know that as long as this team remains in place china will gain power at our expense but here's the bitter truth. no one close to president biden cares. chuck schumer doesn't care. nancy pelosi is holding fundraisers. no democrats in the senate or house care at all. no one and democratic party is calling for firings the resignations or demanding accountability. the fact is they would rather keep proven incompetents in office with all the problems that creates for our national security than risk losing a single vote in 2024.
the pattern of repeated failures with 0 accountability is happening in california just the same. everyone knows governor gavin newsom has done a horrific job here. the unemployment rate in california is 7.6%. ranking california 47th and the cost of doing business here 50th in business friendliness. crime skyrocketing, and in san francisco the situation rapidly deteriorating. >> the stat i have been seeing as homicide, burglaries, car break ins >> back on the rise. >> especially violent crime, robberies, homicides are up 85%. >> 85%, i had it at 30%. >> shootings are up. laura: democrat policies here
have emboldened criminals, murders, shootings, carjackings through the roof. more reporting on this later on the show, democrats who could do something about it just don't care. when millions of californians desperate for some relief from these crises turn to the effort to recall governor gavin newsom the democratic party didn't put forward an alternative candidate. they simply urged california to reject the recall and accept further decline. compare what has been happening on the gop side of politics because we also had an elite that also failed. we have leaders who were unable or unwilling to defend our interests and one i we pushed them out. the bushes and the cheneys are gone replaced by leaders more closely aligned with what the
voters want because in this country we don't have to accept failed leaders. we have the power to replace them and that is what we should do. president biden may not care if the us goes down the drain but we voters can replace the democratic allies in 2022 and replace him in 2024. newsom doesn't care about problems in california but the voters here will have their say on september 14th that if they vote to recall him they can begin to take their state back. they want you to feel helpless. they want you to believe they are doing their best but can't be better than it is now. that is not true. the greatest politician in california's history put it this way. >> i will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. we've come together here because
the american people deserve better -- we stand united. we stand united in our resolve to do something about it. >> was true in the carter era is true in the biden era. californians deserve better, americans deserve better. everything president biden and newsom touch is unraveling including their poll numbers. we don't have to allow this embarrassing spectacle to continue indefinitely. if we do, the cruel joke is on us and that is the angle. joining me now, two afghanistan war veterans, jim banks, pennsylvania senate candidate sean parnell who is also the author of outlaw platoon projects use is reporting that no one will be fired over this afghanistan debacle.
will the gop unanimously demand that biden's national security team, blinken clawson, millie, hand in the resignations? >> they all should, they should have already. president biden should have fired each and every one of them but he's not going to do that. he said publicly he's not going to hold any of them accountable for the catastrophe that has occurred in afghanistan so that leaves the job up to us it is the leader of the largest caucus in congress, the republican study committee i tell you right now that if by the end of the month this crew doesn't safely get every american out of afghanistan, we will begin the process to hold each of the failed leaders accountable for their actions before and being a to the catastrophic events already occurred. we oppose sullivan and secretary austin's appointments already
and will continue to do that hold them accountable moving forward as well. laura: it is unconscionable the democrats have no interest in policing their own here given the human tragedy unfolding. to your point reuters is reporting late tonight the president biden will decide within 24 hours if he will extend the august 30 first withdrawal deadline, the taliban is threatening us over it. >> if the us wanted to extend the 30 first of august deadline in order to continue evacuations would you agree to that? >> know. if they extend it that means they are extending occupation. >> how embarrassing is this honestly? >> extraordinarily embarrassing
because the taliban are dictating terms to the greatest military might the world has ever known and why should they be afraid, chuck schumer dancing with celebrity talkshow host, president biden stumbled to the podium, deliver half-baked speeches to the press, answer pre-scripted questions, come his putting and stumble back on vacation. the american people as ronald reagan said in your intro deserve so much better than that, layup the situation, 10,000 americans are trapped and surrounded by the enemy in kabul. we don't know where they are. how should we are why should the world expect a man in president biden doesn't know where he is 50% of the time to save those people. he is the one who caused the situation in the first place. the american people deserve so much better than what we are getting right now.
it is a tragedy, very difficult to wrap my mind around, 20 years of blood and treasure spent in the country entirely wasted under 7 months of president biden. >> develop an as a lot of shiny new equipment, national security adviser jake sullivan wants everyone to think biden is totally in control. >> along the president has been clear that the united states was not going to enter a third decade of american deployment in the middle of another country's civil war and in his speech in april and in july and in comments he's made since then he has been clear that could mean difficult times in afghanistan. if we had been clear i'd about this from the start -- >> how would you describe president biden's reaction and process for this withdrawal? >> anything but clear i'd.
this commander-in-chief has shown his inability to become his inability to make tough decisions, inability to plan and we still do not have a plan to get americans out of afghanistan. 6 out of 7 of those that we have evacuated out of afghanistan are afghans. we know there are an estimated 15,000 more americans still trapped behind enemy lines, the question every american should be asking is why aren't all of our resources going toward evacuating americans first and the fact is president still doesn't have a plan to do that shows his inability to continue and remain as our commander-in-chief. laura: a source of mine who has been assisting in some of these evacuations told me late last night their understanding is that the taliban is taking note of names off of these lists and
if they are turned away at the gates for whatever reason they are being attacked if they leave the perimeter of the airport, they are not firing at our troops that are retaliating against individuals who have clearance to leave the country. are you surprised by these reports? >> i'm not surprised at all. they lie to your face and stab you in the back the moment you turn your back and it is important for people to understand the enemies we face in afghanistan is not a monolithic force. we are engaging with the taliban and but you have how connie network fighters, they are on the hunt for americans. the taliban cannot be trusted and it is a grave concern to me
the biden administration is placing american lives in their hands. with the biden administration should be saying instead of working with the taliban is we will not leave a single american behind. many terrorists actually their hands on americans we will hunt you down and kill you until every single american is out of the country we are going to run 24/7 continuous ops to get our people out there and the fact that we've not done that since the moment we been wheeled down in the country is an egregious direction of duty from the biden administration. if one american in that country's bills their blood because of president biden's catastrophic incompetency should absolutely resign. jillian: john kirby today, they are not sure how many people, he wouldn't be specific. we don't know how many and
further, is there an appetite for another long-term military deployment in afghanistan under any circumstances? you to have an american public that wants to pull out of afghanistan but they don't want to leave americans behind, the taliban is playing into that push and pull. >> the mission at this moment is to get every american out of the country and that needs to be the military mission, there's still no plan to do that was all a private congressional briefings and provide a way forward to accomplish that. i'm at a loss how that's going to occur if we are kowtowing to be taliban. i never thought an american president without out to a terrorist group but that is exactly what this president is doing, accepting the taliban's redlined deadlines. it should be another way around. >> imagine what the democrats would be saying if any of this
occurred under donald trump. they would be demanding hearings calling for his impeachment, they impeached him for walking across the street. imaginative these circumstances. wonderful to see you both tonight. coming up san francisco where we are broadcasting from tonight, once the jeweled california the california coast is now heartbreaking to report, a cesspool of homelessness, drug abuse and rampant crime. we hit the streets to document the decline and then we will hear from one of the victims of this lawlessness that is being promoted cemented by the city's on da. stay right there.

♪ ♪ >> laura: i'm here tonight in san francisco and remember nancy pelosi's congressional district for more than three laura: i'm in san francisco, nancy pelosi's congressional district for 3 3 decades wouldn would you think the hometown of the house speaker would be a desirable and safe place to live? but the reality is much darker. since 2019 homicide to present 30%, burglaries shot up 51% and homelessness you can't describe it, you have to see it, same with drug abuse. i went to the tenderloin district and spent time with san
francisco's finest, to see the city's decline firsthand and learn how it is connected to the destructive policies of the da. >> a lot of violent crimes are up because of these policies, catch and release, the swiftest revolving door in the, justice system where it is a small group of people committing these crimes again and again and again and doing so because they realize there are no consequences for their bad behavior. there are people laying all over the place, a minute ago where this white van is parked there was a gentleman sitting on the sidewalk in broad daylight with kids around smoking crack cocaine right here by the police department. >> the police station is here and crack cocaine is there.
>> they do so knowing if they were to get caught there would be 0 consequences for their behavior. >> 0 consequences from smoking crack 25 yards from the police and the school. >> just kind of a downward spiral not from lack of resources, san francisco spend $1 billion for all the different nonprofit and services they offer, some people don't want the help. laura: if i want it to buy crack industry block area how hard would it be? >> not hard at all, under a minute. laura: how about apps? fentanyl? >> same. >> easy to get. >> easy to get. laura: prop 47, $940. >> complete disaster. george gascon was one of the
co-authors, safe schools -- it -- police wouldn't be inundated with shoplifting and so forth. >> it was sold that way, it turned a lot of misdemeanors specifically theft. it is not a felony, you see people on camera with a calculator adding up the cost of merchandise they are stealing. laura: this particular block we have a real going up the block of homeless people, people doing their laundry, siphoning off the fire hydrant to do some laundry with detergent. he wants crystal. >> this is what it is about, truly sad. this is a relatively quiet block
at the moment. laura: this is a quiet block? where do people go to the bathroom? >> right here on the street corner. >> it is the smell of pot. >> these people are living in those conditions, third world country type conditions. ashley: you don't have to go to afghanistan to see conditions. laura: some of the local start filming in the tenderloin district and have their own views about these problems. >> wonderful things are happening. you can get housing. we need housing. in the coronavirus epidemic. >> they have their own thoughts about spending billions overseas when there's so much suffering
here at home. >> i've got people -- laura: should we be continuing to have foreign wars in afghanistan? >> know. laura: we have an enormous problem with homelessness. it has gotten worse in 25 years. >> continuing to get worse and with the open-air drug market more people died last year fentanyl overdoses than they did of the covid virus. and a lot of that has to do with protein refusing to prosecute people who are out there selling drugs. they work a sleeping giant with the average citizen because they are getting fed up, people used to say clients were contained in the tenderloin, it is believed every corner of the city. laura: that is just a small window into what is happening in san francisco it is beyond clear
that the da needs to go. he is a menace, making calls lives easier and the lives of san franciscans more dangerous by the day. san francisco police officers association president tony montoya said crime is awakening the sleeping giant because residents are angry, they don't want to live this way, they don't want to live in fear anymore and my next guest is helping the movement out, she's one of the many victims of this the's insane policies. back in december her home was burglarized by a parolee, her young son on the other side of the window as the suspect sold 30,$000 worth of items including a computer, laptop, camera, even a power washer. joining me is venture capitalist brian bannister. i tried to capture what i could in the time we had and your
heartbreaks and you get angry at the same time because you keep saying but for the grace of god go i, people made one wrong decision and end of living on the streets but obviously the policies in place aren't working and as you experienced crimes off charts. what does america need to understand about this da and his policies? >> crime is off the charts and he constantly gets in front of us telling us and repeating the chant over and over again the crime is down and of course it is down because he's down charging crime and reducing things to misdemeanors and not charging, like the officer said earlier it is a revolving door. i found out the person the burglarized me, home invasion is considered a violent offense and they are going to down charge his offense to the cost of what was stolen out of my house rather than entering my home.
i find that boggling because not only do we have a sign above our city that says everything is free, good walgreens and take $900 worth of stuff but now you can enter private homes and establishments and take anything without any repercussions. so he was facing 6 years for what he did and now i'm lucky if he will get 6 months. laura: wasn't your friend just burglarized or terrorized? >> i had a friend not far from me broken into at midnight, he couldn't sleep and they call these quality-of-life crimes which is ridiculous. your home is your sanctuary, right?
>> your quality-of-life doesn't count, only the criminals quality-of-life they're worried about. >> that is the message we are getting and i don't know what is going to happen, more people are reaching out to me wondering what it takes to own a firearm in san francisco. we don't have concealed carry permit here, we don't have gun laws at all. it is outrage. we are allowed to defend our homes but if we do that, in a situation where i defended my home what is going to happen to me? keeps me up at night. i don't want to be in that position. >> i think of feminists who are like girl power and women have to be strong but they don't believe that because women who can defend themselves in a situation like that are called lackeys of the nra or right-wing fanatics, your safety doesn't count. >> the second amendment is for everyone, don't matter if you're a man or woman, the second amendment applies to you.
result of this criminality. how has it changed. >> i'm closing at 8:00, close the shop. laura: raymond arroyo is here with me reporting on the crime that is swamping the city. he joins me for seen and unseen. >> these people are being subjected to all sorts of things and it is at the hands of the public official charged with guaranteeing the safety of the citizens that i want to bring you up-to-date to what president biden did after literally genuflecting to members of the wnba at the white house it seems afghanistan and the state of the nation are getting to biden, listen to this telling admission. >> i may need work after this to get a good ballplayer. >> i may need work after this.
that could be the bite of the day. this is an administration clearly underwater but hoping to keep the show going. we saw a similar routine from new york mayor bill deblasio this weekend. is nyc homecoming concert health more like an eviction. big names of the bill, cnn covered live. it started with the philharmonic and government and there were a few off key moments. >> after the financial crisis they said we would come back. we did. after sandy they said we would come back, we did. >> maybe you did. chuck schumer went backstage and i guess he thought there slick concert would make people believe new york was to be back
but hurricane was brewing as mary manilow launched into his medley. >> ♪♪ if you only know what i'm going for a ♪♪ i just can't smile >> thank you for your cooperation. we have severe weather. move quickly and calmly. >> get out, that was it. no springsteen, no paul simon but fema was called in. >> she came in she gave without taking, the hurricane came, there was something new there. i loved when the concert suddenly ended, then cnn's
anderson cooper tried to do something to keep the show going. >> ready to take a chance again on the phone with barry manilow. >> a question that has been on my mind since i heard, cabana. is it music and fashion were always a passion reset music and passion were always in fashion. >> music and passion were always the fashion. ♪♪ and made it through ♪♪ >> they didn't make it through. for a moment i thought anderson was going to brag about his moroccos but this whole concert was ill advised. when you have a covid situation and you are taking other people, won't want the man fireworks in mount rushmore and have parades and other places but you are going to stage a quick the concert while a hurricane is bearing down, and you think things like this will happen and
they did happen. jillian: new york is not back. business is down, growth projections are now down because of delta and the policies they have. the premise of it was wrong. >> it was the perfect way to end this event i thought. jillian: i needed that. after what we saw in san francisco i needed barry manilow and afghanistan is in chaos so the biden administration pivots to covid using the fda's vaccine approval to punish more americans. we have reaction you do not want to miss.
♪ ♪ >> laura: the fda jillian:. the approved the fisa covid vaccine today and president biden is using it as justification to take away your rights. >> if you're a business leader, nonprofit leader, state or local leader who has been waiting for full fda approval to require vaccinations, i call on you now to do that required, vaccination requirements have been around for decades, it only makes sense to require vaccine to stop the
spread of covid 19. >> decades. professor of medicine at stanford. first of all, i'm not too far from stanford so i hope you feel the 5. did they not push this fda approval too fast especially when you compare it to the normal approval process? they did. normally would take years to get a vaccine tested, approved for the fda approval process, they moved extraordinarily quickly. the full approval of this drug in some sense doesn't change the fundamental issues with the vaccine. we know from experience, we have eight month of safety data and experience with use of the vaccine so it is a safe vaccine, i strongly encourage older people who've not had covid get the vaccine because covid is
such a bad disease but this does not change that we don't have long-term safety data. laura: as i understand it most of the data that have been gathered in applications for full approval predated the arrival of the delta variant in the united states which is what the vaccine has more trouble with overtime. >> the trials were run in 2020 and what happened with the end of the trials or last year was half the people in the placebo arm and half in the treatment arm, the people in the placebo arm unblinded a i said for most of the people if you want the vaccine you can have it so the trial can't be used to measure
the long-run effects of the vaccine because the placebo arm got blown up for ethical reasons, the vaccine was found to be effective and they said we can't continue to not offer the vaccine to people with the placebo. will be hard to get long-term randomized trial data on what the long-term effects are because of that fact. i don't understand the need to approve it fully so quickly. i especially don't understand president biden using it to encourage employers and others to mandate the vaccine. i think it undercuts trust in public health, justin vaccines in particular. the kinds of vaccines that are mandated tend to be vaccines that do we know for sure stop the spread of the disease, get vaccinated against measles, the child is not going to spread measles. that's not true for this
vaccine, you've seen in countries like the uk explosions of cases even though they are widely vaccinated. it still protects against severe disease but doesn't seem to protect against disease spreads arrive require mandate. >> the delta variant is very different from the original strain of this virus. we have people double vaccinated or getting infected and even some hospitalized so seems like there's going to be a second-generation of the vaccine, which will have to be considered a new. >> that is true. especially in this particular sense. the old vaccine still protects. laura: i never interrupt you. i'm so sorry. i like the head phones, very cool, thank you. still had more from my california adventure next.
