Vince Coakley reacts to the President Biden's speech from Thursday night and points out several instances where months ago Washington Democrats were NOT calling for COVID vaccine mandates. What changed and why has this come a political battle?

In Hour 1 of Monday's show, Vince talks about West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin - a Democrat - crossing party lines to lead the fight against Joe Biden's massive 3.5 trillion economic spending bill. A step rarely seen in Washington, but deserves mainstream support from both parties.

Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney - filling in for Vince Coakley - breaks down what he heard from President Joe Biden last night with his plans for a vaccine mandate and what he actually liked hearing from the President. Also, Biden's plans going forward will likely turn him into a one-term president. 

Dr. Anthony Fauci misled Americans about Coronavirus research at a lab in Wuhan, China. WBT's mid-morning radio host summarized the need for the nation's top infectious disease expert to be held responsible for his mistakes.

The South Carolina GOP senator said, "Most importantly, they're going to give safe haven to Al-Qaeda who has ambitions to drive us out of the Mid East writ large and attack us because of our way of life. We will be going back into Afghanistan, as we went back into Iraq and Syria."

One week out from the US exit from Afghanistan, Vince Coakley evaluates how much blame Joe Biden should take for the war overseas. He also sees a conflict ahead when the dust settles in the Middle East. 

Craig Sherman, a former US Marine, explains to WBT's Vince Coakley how soldiers were set up for failure in their current mission in the middle eastern region. He also gives a detailed account of how the airport is laid out and how that plays into a disadvantage for ongoing evacuation efforts.
