Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, to another episode of the Straight Talk podcast with yours, truly the host. That would be me, former Milwaukee County Sheriff, David Clark. So here we are. in podcast past, I've talked about. This war going on in the Middle East. By the way, we are at war in the Middle East and we are at war in Ukraine, and I'm tired of the Biden administration and their ilk in the liberal media trying to provide Biden cover that. Well, we're not really in a war. Yes, we are. And I've talked on numerous podcast segments about how you can't be one foot in one foot out. Of these regions, Biden's trying to thread a needle. He's conducting military operations, serious ones without, and trying not to be blamed for, for being involved in a war, starting a war, being involved in an endless war. But that's where we're headed. That's where we are in Ukraine, and that's where we're headed toward in the Middle East. The Middle East is on fire in Fuego. In different areas. You have the situation going on in Gaza. You have a situation going on in Jordan at the border with Syria Yemen, the Red Sea. You have the United States with military equipment and soldiers. And a couple of podcasts ago I talked about how when, when, when we lost two Navy SEALs, I said, this is what happens. When you're conducting military operations, but you're only half in, you cannot, from a moral standard, put U.S troops in harm's way with no real mission. Well, we kind of are. Well, we want to keep the Red Sea open for trade while the other side is lobbing drones and missiles. Everything else at you, and you have these service members that are basically sitting ducks, go back and listen, I talked about this. Well, here we are again. A few days ago, three service members killed in action. When a drone hit a base camp over. At the Jordan-Syrian Border killing three US service members and wounding more than 30, and we're not at war. If we're not at war, why are service members losing their lives? So then Biden comes out with his usual crapola or hearts go out to the surviving family members, the brave hero, all this nonsense. He put them there and the congress idly stands by, and of course, you know, they did like, they, they did with the, uh, the, the two Navy SEALs, you know, for, you know, little saber rattling from Republicans on the hill to take political advantage of this thing in an election year. All of this activity going on in Ukraine. Although we don't have troops in the ground still, the billions and hundreds of billions of dollars that are going to finance that war with no real mission and no end in sight. What's the objective? Congress hasn't asked. So they take a political shot and I don't have a problem with that, but I'm not giving the GOP any credit for this, for firing back at Biden over the loss of three US service members. In a drone attack on a base camp. I'm not giving them any credit for that. They should have said something a long time ago when I first started talking about this. It's when they should have said something, and I've been on this story probably since the situation anyway, last fall when things started heating up. So, of course you know the Biden administration, all the vowing, retaliation, retaliation, I talked about this previously too. We're in this defensive mode, reaction mode. We're never on offense in this, this in the Middle East here, when things caught on fire. We're always defending, we're always reacting. Well, now we're starting to lose lives. In that Afghan withdrawal, so I'll read some, some something here. From the From the Wall Street Journal, three US troops are killed in drone strike at Jordan Base. Three U.S service members were killed in more than 30 injured and an Iran-backed military militia drone strike on a base in northeast Jordan. U.S officials said, marking the first American troops killed in hostile action since the start of the Hamas-Israeli conflict in Gaza. That's not true. We lost two Navy SEALs Plus. There've been other casualties that were kind of like glossed over. A U.S official said the attack took place at Tower Twenty-Two, a small outpost post near the Syrian border. The drone struck living quarters for the troops contributing to the high number of casualties. A U.S official said the strike carried out by a one-way. Attack drone marks an escalation in the fighting in the region. The president and secretary of defense of the U.S would retaliate. Yeah, escalation. It was Iran a couple weeks ago that that was accusing the United States of escalating things. But I got another question I wanna ask you. Why is it okay for the United States to back Ukraine in a war by funding it, but it's not okay for Iran to support these militia that they're supporting over there? It's the same thing. I'm not condemning the United States backing Ukraine, but I don't wanna hear this. While, uh, Iran is financing. I keep hearing this from people. Well, these are Iran backed militias. Well, Ukraine is United States backed entity, and the Russians could say the same thing. You either at war or you're not. I've said before, it's kinda like you can't be somewhat pregnant or a little bit pregnant. You either are pregnant or you're not. It's that clear. But Biden's trying to walk this fine line, like I said, I like that analogy. He's trying to thread a needle here. Well, we are, but we aren't. Well, what is it? Which one is it? Because you have troops in harm's way and now you have casualties. So it goes on to say here, just what that response might be is also likely to figure into this year's political campaign. Oh, no kidding. You think Biden doesn't know that that's what he is worried about. That's his foreign policy. Stinks. It says here, Biden's, who said the attack was carried out by Iran-backed militants in Syria and Iraq. Single. That a military response is planned. Well, first of all, don't expect much. Okay? Don't expect expect much from Biden because he doesn't want to escalate things. You remember he just said that a couple weeks ago. Well, we don't want to escalate things. So the story goes on to say here, the Biden administration has sought to walk a fine line in responding to the Iran-backed militia attacks while trying to avoid inflaming politics in Iraq, where the presence of U.S troops has been assailed by the Shia hardliners. The goal is to deter them, and we don't want. To go down a path of greater escalation that drives to a much broader conflict within the region. Chairman of joint, Chiefs of staff, air Force General, C.Q Brown, sit on the A, B, C in an ABC news interview. Interview. See, you can't do this. You have to pick a horse and ride it. All of this tiptoeing around. Well, we don't wanna, we don't wanna infuriate people and we don't then get the damn troops out of. Troops are used to fight and win wars. So then it says here, Iran-backed militias have carried out more than 150 attacks against U.S troops in Iraq and Syria since October 17th. I told you, I've been talking about this since last fall, 150 attacks, attacks. The United States and Biden and his ilk in Austin, and that Blinken, they're playing patty cake with these people. They're playing footsie. Instead of going over there, hitting them in the mouth and making it clear. That'll be enough of that and more is coming. If you don't get out of dodge, don't screw with us. And you show them with a barrage with heavy artillery. Well, we don't want, yes, we do. Otherwise get the hell out of there. So anyway, they've been using mortars and launching drones, rockets and ballistic missiles. That's a war. Those are, you know, you always hear the left talking about, uh, the AR-Fifteen and, and you know, weapons of war. Well, if an AR-Fifteen is a weapon of war, so are drones and so are missiles, ballistic missiles and rockets. Those are weapons of war. We are at war in the Middle East, yet the possibility that an Iranian-backed militia strike could lead to significant casualties has been evident for months. Yeah, you think it's been evident to me? I've been talking about it for months. So here's some of the casualties that have happened before these three service members were killed in this drone attack. A US Service member was seriously wounded in a Christmas day attack on a basin. Herbal Iraq, though most of the other injuries have been minor, minor. On January 4th, the U.S killed an Iranian-backed militia leader in a drone attack. The administration's most recent retaliatory blow took place on Wednesday, local time when the U.S struck. Three facilities used by the Iranian-backed group, Qatayb Hezbollah. And then it goes on to say, here it ends by saying, two Navy SEALs were lost at sea during the operation to seize a vessel carrying Iranian-made missile parts bound for the Houthi rebels in Yemen. It's a war. We either gonna fight to win this thing or we should get the hell out and Biden. Should be made to answer for this. None of the back-and-forth political barbs from these members of Congress. He needs to address the American people in a prime time speech and therefore he, he can consider himself addressing the Congress. What the hell are we doing over there and why? What's the mission? How long is it going to take? And when can we expect it to be over? We have the strongest military in the world that the world has ever seen, for heaven's sakes. And you know what? Iran and the Houthis and everybody, they know this, this clown Biden, he's not gonna do anything to us. He's afraid. This is an election year. We can exploit this. It's an election year. He doesn't wanna start. A major conflict in an election year. So he is got our service members as sitting ducks. For heaven's sakes. This is not okay and it's only going to get worse. That's about the fourth time since I've been covering this on this podcast. It's about the fourth time that I've had to say this. So let's turn the page, come back to another story. That's the other thing about this podcast. I don't just cover most of the stuff. One time I, I know that's how it appears in the news. You hear an initial story and then it just kind of like you never hear anything about it again. I've been covering this Christopher Wray, this liar. Who got caught once again in this, this, this scheme to target Catholics. You remember me calling me talking about this. This is like the third or fourth time I'm talking about it and I'm gonna keep talking about it'cause a guy keeps getting caught and he keeps lying. So more records have have been. Obtained by Congress as to this whole Catholics are extremists and, and and terrorists and so on and so forth. So this here from the Washington Times FBI deleted records related to anti-Catholic memo GOP. Lawmakers say Republican lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary committee say they are seeking action and accountability. Yeah, right. After discovering new details and discrepancies surrounding an anti-Catholic memo prepared by analysts last year in the FBI's Richmond, Virginia Field office. In a letter spearheaded by Senator Chuck Grassley to FBI Director Christopher Wray, the I Republican, and his colleagues asked about revelations that the top FBI officials ordered analysts to permanently delete files related to the memo, which identified traditional Catholics as potential domestic terrorists deleting files. Ladies and gentlemen. They're obstructing Congress, Christopher Wray, liar, extraordinaire. They're obstructing Congress. Nobody would be held accountable. You know it. I know it. I, I'm not, I I, I don't kid myself. Nothing. Nothing's gonna happen to Christopher Wray. So every time he comes up to the hill he, you know, he feigns ignorance. Well I haven't seen that memo. Well, I'll have to go back and take a look. Well, I didn't read that one. Well, I'm not sure, but you know, I'll get back to you. But only he said, I talked about it under oath. He said, nah, that was a lone, you know, agent in some obscure office and that didn't go any further. Well, they're finding out it did. So it says here, Grassley. Now we know that information related to the Richmond Memo wasn't provided to Congress because the FBI deleted the records as soon as the incident became public. The latest letter stated, according to a report released by the House Judiciary Committee on December 4th, deputy de Director Paul Abbate, ordered Richmond special agent in charge, Stanley Meader. To take the memo down as soon as it became public. The GOP lawmakers demanded an immediate explanation for the order to delete the records, Accusing the Bureau of obstruction, and asking why it withheld the information from the this, from the Senate, despite repeated requests for the records, because he knows he can. That's why he did it. I'm talking about Ray, that's why he did it, because he knows he can and he knows nothing's going to happen. And all this saber-rattling by Grassley and all these other people on the hill means nothing. It's all theater. Deleting records, for heaven's sakes, is as serious as it gets in terms of obstructing an investigation. If the FBI were investigating me. And they said, uh, we want records pertaining to whatever emails, whatever. And I deleted them and they found out I deleted them. Do you think it would, I could get away with, well, I'll have to go back and take a look. I, I, I, I'm not sure about that. Martha Stewart, the time in federal prison for obstructing. The FBI. A lot of people are sitting in federal, federal prison for obstructing an FBI investigation. January 6th, members or people involved are sitting in federal prison for obstructing that investigation. But Ray could come up to the hill and Fauci could come up to the hill and obstruct Congress and lie cheat and everything else. Then nothing happens. That seems to be okay. I get sick of this. I just, I get disgusted with the crap that goes on in Washington DC that if you or I did it, we're gonna be indicted. We're going to federal prison. They get to lie to the congress. These bureaucrats, they get to lie to the American people under old and nothing happens. Ladies and gentlemen, nauseating. I don't know how much more this I can take. I really don't. I, so it goes on to say here the Richmond memo, which was publicly leaked in January of 20 twenty-three. Labeled radical traditional Catholics as potential racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, Catholics, violent extremists. It stated that racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, what's it called? R-M-v-e's r-M-v-e's. In radical traditionalist Catholic ideology almost certainly present opportunities for threat mitigation through the exploration of new anim, uh, avenues for tripwire and source development. When the memo became widely known, Mr. Wray denounced it and distanced himself and the Bureau from it. He said it was a product of just one field office. Liar, liar, liar, liar, liar. Pants on fire. And if he doesn't know that it was more than this, then he's incompetent. The buck stops with him and he sits up there and he says, uh, yeah. Well, I, I wasn't aware of that. I don't know that I, if I ever read that whole thing and I, I, I, I'm not here, it says. He also could not recall whether he had read the unredacted version of the anti-Catholic memo produced by the Richmond Field Office before he previously testified to the House Judiciary Committee. How could he come there and not prepare? And you know what? He's never brought back. He said, okay. Uh, you're gonna get us that information. Alright, we'll talk to you next week. Go back and review it. No, you just hear they just move on. That's why I said this whole thing's, uh, just theater. So the Republican senators say This information was material and important to all of us and to any member concerned about the memo's, scope, members in Congress, members of Congress, and both chambers had inquired about the scope of this memo, its preparation and distribution. Before you testified, they said. The involvement of the other field offices, therefore was material information that you should have provided and its redaction. Coupled with your testimony, appear to show a conscious effort to withhold that information from us. See, they know it and they're telling him right to his face. They won't do anything. They won't do anything, and the agents involved. Nothing happens to them. If Ray wants to say, well, that was some loan agent and he shouldn't have done that, what's gonna happen to him? He's violating people's civil rights. Can you imagine if the FBI was coming in to do an investigation on a local police agency for some civil rights violation? You know how they come in, they do these takeovers of law enforcement agencies, pattern and practice, they call it. A pattern in practice investigation on a local police agency, and if they found out that the chief had ordered records to be deleted and shredded that they were looking for, can you imagine what would happen to that chief or any of the officers involved in that if they were trying to obstruct the FBI's investigation into a pattern and practice investigation? Imagine that. Do you think that chief or those officers at the local level could get away with Well, I, I, I, I wasn't aware of that. Well, that's just a lone guy and I don't worry about that. Nothing to see here. No. Wouldn't be allowed. But it's okay. For the FBI, the FBI is a disgraced bureaucracy. Christopher Ray. Is a disgraced FBI director. He has no integrity, none, zero. This agency, I've said it before, I will say it again. I stand by it. It's not hyperbole. I've made the case and I haven't even uncovered all of what's going on within that corrupt agency. They should be defunded. They should be expanded. Thanks for joining me.
