Trump to Unveil Latest Strategy in Afghanistan in First Televised Address Since January

President Donald Trump will offer “a path forward for America’s engagement in Afghanistan and South Asia” as he addresses American Troops and the nation tonight on live television from Fort Myer, Virginia.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis confirmed to reporters that the president decided on a new strategy that some have speculated will increase the number of troops already present in Afghanistan. Mattis refrained from outlining the specifics of the new strategy as the Trump insisted on delivering the new plan himself.

The 16-year-old war has also lead to mass opium production. According to Forbes, Afghanistan now produces as much as 80 percent of the world’s opium which has caused approximately 127,000 deaths worldwide as of 2015.

According to the New York Times, several military leaders say the increase in personnel will help fight corruption and “reverse gains made by the Taliban and militant groups like the Islamic State’s Afghan affiliate, the Islamic State in Khorasan.”

This will be Trump’s first televised address since January, with the issue of troops in Afghanistan having been a point of contention for him since taking office. While Barack Obama was president, he advocated for a rapid withdrawal of U.S. troops in a tweet that stated, “We should have a speedy withdrawal. Why should we keep wasting our money — rebuild the U.S.!”

Today on Think Tank the panel discussed the president’s options and whether or not the mass production of opium will lead to a new drug war.

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?
