Mike Pence has landed himself a new job as the 2022 midterm elections and 2024 presidential election approach.
On Friday he started his new podcast for Young American’s Foundation called “American Freedom” with his first episode titled “20 Years Later, We Will Never Forget,” where he talks about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed thousands of Americans and began the two-decade war on terror, The Daily Wire reported.
“Young America’s Foundation is proud to announce the launch of the American Freedom podcast, Vice President Mike Pence’s newest project to promote and advance freedom across the nation,” the groups said in a press release. “The podcast will serve as an opportunity for Vice President Pence to share stories of the fight for freedom against big government and anything that would threaten America’s standing as the greatest nation on the face of the Earth.”
“As schools and public officials nationwide attempt to sanitize and forget the tragic 9/11 attacks, Vice President Pence is using the 20th anniversary of that horrific day as an opportunity to ensure the next generation understands what the day means to the nation and the lasting impact it has created,” it said.
“Vice President Mike Pence has always been a stalwart defender of individual freedom, traditional values, free markets, and limited government throughout his career of distinguished service to our country,” YAF President Governor Scott Walker said. “A longtime friend of the Foundation, Vice President Pence is the perfect choice to directly address the rising generation about the ongoing threats to freedom, and inspire them with the founding principles of our country.”
Pence celebrated the start of his new show in a press release of his own.
“I am thrilled to partner with Young America’s Foundation to launch my new podcast, American Freedom,” he said. “American Freedom will serve as an opportunity to highlight the unique and remarkable ways in which the next generation of conservative leaders are stepping up to promote traditional conservative values and reject the destructive ideals of the radical left that threaten America’s standing as the great in the world.”
Pence spoke about the day of the attacks when he was still a freshman congressman. He said he was on Capitol Hill when the first airplane hit the first of the Twin Towers. He said by the time he got back to his office the other plane hit the other tower and that is when the talk of terrorism began.
“I gathered for staff for a very quick prayer,” before he left the building, he said.
“I was standing in my office … when my assistant dropped the telephone, yelled, ‘The Pentagon has been hit.’ We immediately saw on our television screens the smoke rising from the Pentagon, just across the river from Capitol Hill,” he said.
He said that he was with other lawmakers when the Capitol Police informed them that “’ there’s an aircraft inbound to the Capitol, and it’s 12 minutes out,’” he said. “And I remember the silence that descended on that office.”
And in an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Pence took the time to shred Joe Biden on his vaccine mandates announced on Thursday.
“I have to tell you the president’s speech yesterday was unlike anything I had ever heard from an American president,” he said.
“I mean, to have the president of the United States say that he has been patient but his patience is wearing thin. That’s not how the American people expect to be spoken to by our elected leaders,” he said.
“They spent the whole last year undermining public confidence in the vaccine,” he said referring to statements made about the potential vaccines when Donald Trump was in the White House.
“If and when the vaccine comes, it’s not likely to go through all the tests that need to be done, and the trials that are needed to be done,” Biden said in those days.
“If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us that we should take it, I’ll be the first in line to take it, absolutely,” Kamala Harris said at the vice-presidential debate. “But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I’m not taking it.”
Pence remembered that debate in his comments on “Fox & Friends.”
“If you remember my vice presidential debate, I called out Kamala Harris. I said you’ve got to stop playing politics with people’s lives,” Pence said.
“Because she said she wouldn’t take a vaccine that President Trump had created,” he said.
“We got governors across the country what they needed when they needed it, and we respected them to make the decisions best for their state. And now to have a president not just scolding the American people but scolding governors around the country, just is not the American way. And I expect the response they are going to get across the country will prove that” he said.
