Why Wendy Sherman Is Wrong for Foreign Policy Negotiations
"Wendy Sherman came out yesterday saying, look, we might be able to work on the INF, and we might be able to cancel some war games. I said that's appeasement admiral staff reader says no, that's negotiation. What are you thinking is? Well, let's look at her history Wendy Sherman has the worst history of negotiation on demand. Look at North Korea, look at Iran. I don't understand why the Senate allows someone like Wendy Sherman to be our negotiator. She is not the tip of the spear. She's not our best. She's actually one of the worst, she cares very deeply about being liked by the other side. She doesn't have the ability to put down an America first agenda. She is crippled like Biden. She is crippled with consensus, meaning the other side's got to like me, otherwise I'm in trouble.

Biden Nominee Says Navy Needs 'Gender Advisors'
"We are both army veterans. We both look at the navy as a necessary evil. But I'm a little confused because I thought even sailors knew the difference between boys and girls. But apparently there is an admiral up for being nominated. I think he's a vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. Who thinks that what the navy now requires is gender advisers? Have you are you aware of this turn of events? Yes. It unfortunately tracks with the entire, I guess, bent of the military these days towards being more involved in flying the pride flag than in flying the American flag. And I don't know that it's really doing it's a whole lot of good in the main mission of military, which is deter our enemies from trying anything bad. At this point, I don't think they have a whole lot of skier or any kind of concern about our military coming. And that's a bad sign for the entire world. I think it's a very bad sign Jim Hanson. Not too long ago, down in San Diego, the bond home or chard caught fire. I'm not a sailor. You're not a sailor, but I think we can agree that fires on a big metal boat full of jet fuel and ammunition. Probably something you want to be trained and prepared to battle. Wouldn't you agree? I don't know if you have the difficult task of ensuring that everyone on the boat's pronouns are properly maintained and ready for battle. So I think they had their priorities where they need to be in the modern age. They also had a submarine that ran into an undersea mountain now. I don't know about you, but I was under the impression that we planned and trained and made those boats capable of not running into undersea mountains or anything else while they were doing their duty, but apparently those things again have come second to the necessity for a local military. And I don't think that is again going to serve anybody's purpose.
China Is Flexing Their International Reach
"Now. Now I want to go to China admiral. There are three stories. One from the foundation of defense and democracy on the Confucius Institutes. Troublingly reported this morning. It's a brand new study over at FD D ComEd DD dot org. We ordered many of them closed. They didn't close or they shape shift of their still there. A second one, The Washington Post this morning documents link why way to China surveillance programs and a third in The New York Times massive and interesting? How Beijing influencers the influencers. Any westerner in China is being encouraged to do YouTube channels and supported by the state provided they put the right kind of stuff up on their YouTube channel. China is omnivorous on social media admiral. They are, and they're very capable and it's part of their approach. They are going to internationally push this belt road initiative and trying to connect with as many countries are willing to accept economic support from them. Within China, they have constructed the ultimate interagency, if you will, all the elements of government are fully integrated and work together. And perhaps most concerningly for us, here's your point, they are highly highly capable at what could be called broadly strategic communication, meaning how they depict the state, how they depicted internally and externally, how they harness social networks, how they controlled massive amounts of data. All of those things are tools that authoritarian states have always had, but now they're enhanced by the power of cyber and the social network. So there should be nothing surprising in any of those three stories to those who have been watching China.
Pearl Harbor: The Day of Infamy
"Well, the summer 7th of course was Pearl Harbor, 1941. A day which will live in infamy. The man overseeing the base operations in Hawaii if I remember correctly his name is admiral husband. Husband Kimmel, my memory serves me right. Now it's this great metaphor, which is and it's actually tragic. He was a great guy. He just decided to go golfing on the wrong day. He went golfing on a beautiful Hawaiian morning and next thing you know the pre emptive strike against the United States occurred, which basically sunk our entire Pacific fleet. Thousands of Americans died. And left us so geo politically and strategically vulnerable. In the hours and days that followed, there was fear that the Japanese would attack California next that amphibious ground amphibious invasion of the western part of the United States was imminent. America's reaction to Pearl Harbor showed us the type of country we were. We didn't tolerate it. Even FDR a left wing Democrat rallied the forces domestically and said, we are now going to go to war and we are going to win. Franklin Delano Roosevelt and cut 28. So today that will live in infamy. Play cut 28. Yesterday, the summer 7, 19, 41. A date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked. By naval air forces of the empire of France, as the moderate chief of the army and baby, I have directed an all measures be taken for the battle. Remember the character of the unsolved against us. I asked congressman clown a state of war between the United States and the Japanese empire. The speech is really good. And it said a lot about who we were as a nation, what we were willing to do to defend the homeland.
Remembering Pearl Harbor: Who Was Admiral Husband Kimmel?
"And the co owner of wrhi radio is a guy named Manny Kimmel, Manning Kimmel the fourth, Manning Kimmel the fourth is the grandson of a historic figure and on this Pearl Harbor day, we thought it would be pretty neat to share the story of the Kimmel family and what they've been spending many lifetimes trying to wrong that they've attempted to write. Let's welcome on our guest line, Manning Kimmel, the fourth, he's the grandson of admiral husband Kimmel, who is the naval commander. He was the commander in chief of the Pacific fleet on September December of 1941. Manning, it's great to have you on the Mike Gallagher show. How are you sure? Well, I'm fine. Mike has been hard to believe. 7 years since you were here in Rock Hill, South Carolina, to help us celebrate our 70th anniversary, and I had the chance to pull you off the microphone and take you into my office and show you a bunch of memorabilia from Pearl Harbor and I think that was the first time you ever do about the connection between myself and this historic incident that happened in our country's history. I'll never forget that visit and I remember learning about your grandfather, so tell the world about your grandfather. Tell everyone about husband Kimmel, who he was and what happened to him after Pearl Harbor. He was the commander in chief of the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941 with its Japanese attack. And of course, the right after the attack, the immediate indication was we have to put blame on somebody. So we'll put it on admiral Kimmel and his army counterpart general Walter short. History, however, has proven all that to have been absolutely incorrect. They were alleged to have been derelict in their duty by the Roberts commission, which was a Supreme Court associate justice who went out there two weeks after the attack. And what do they see? Nothing but carnage and sunken ships and what have you. And of course they branded Kimmel and short being derelict in their duty. However, and to make a long story short, they were able to hear 9 investigations. Investigations which came up with absolutely no evidence at all that Kimball in short were derelict in their duty. And in fact, the only one in 1944 the naval board of inquiry, which was the best of the best of the navy, judging one of their peers, admiral Kimmel, found out that she wanted to go away from the duty. And in fact, that the critical enabled intelligence, which should have been shared with Kimball in short, was never sent to them. Well, that has spurred a whole bunch of activity by the Kimmel family trying to get this stain of dereliction of beauty, removed from admiral Kimmel, because he was never charged with anything. In fact, he was as my dad used to say tricked into retirement. But that stain of dereliction of duty has hung around his
In Taiwan War Game, Few Good Options for U.S. To Deter China
"Washington Post this morning 5 a.m. Dan lamothe in Taiwan war game few good options for you as to deter China. The center for a new American strategy ran a war game involving the dung shoe island. I'd probably mispronouncing that. Didn't go well. It didn't go well. And in fact, they're even worried about bigger scenarios than that. I'm not surprised that you surprised admiral. No, I'm not. I've participated in several of those war games over the years. U.S. indo Pacific command runs those on a regular basis. And they're increasingly reflecting the reality that China has many more ships much more capability in their aircraft, longer land based ballistic and tactical missiles. That's been on the upswing for a decade and more and it's starting to really bleed into the results of these war games in a negative way. In the end, the article says the best advice is that warn the Chinese ahead of time of the consequences they would face if they moved on any of the islands, including Taiwan, with Japan playing a significant role. Haven't we already done that didn't President Biden sort of accidentally do that in the town hall last week where he said we would defend Taiwan? Well, he certainly said that we would defend Iran and we have a commitment to do so. But then within 24 hours you saw both The White House spokesperson gen sasaki and The Pentagon in Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, kind of returned to this former policy. It's called strategic ambiguity of not telling China exactly what we're going to do. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, my own view is that a, we should, in fact, assist Taiwan aggressively if they are attacked. And B, it's time to tell China that we are going to do that. And I think there is a growing sense of that in the public conversation about this.
Jessie Jane Duff's Hardcore Response to the Concept of Women in Combat
"And we're back one on one with Jesse Jane Duff. Okay, we discussed it at the beginning of the show. Let's open it up a little bit further. The NDAA, the national defense authorization act the Republicans who are bending over backwards to facilitate the crazies in the Democrat party. Well, not crazy. The crazy Democrat party told us about this idea of the draft for women. And who's behind this insanity and give us your take justice? Well, you know, there is so much disarray with this current administration that I couldn't tell you the logic behind any of it. Other than they have been enabled by our enemies. I mean, I look at this as just watering down the capabilities of our United States military one drip at a time. And people, you know, I get on Twitter and I get these guys. I wanna say, well, you all wanted equality. And I'm like, stop it. Stop it. Don't sit here and argue with someone like me. I wasn't one of those lieutenants that went to go to the courts and protest ensues, so I could become a general one day. The odds of you becoming a general in the infantry are slim to almost zero. Number one, number two, what is your motivation for this? It's not going to impact combat readiness. On one level. So first of all, there was a study done by the United States Marine Corps when Obama had lifted the combat exemption for women. And I believe it was 2015. April 15th, I remember was tax day. And it went without nobody cried. Nobody cried. Civilian women didn't even care. And I'm sorry, civilian ladies, you never care till it impacts you. And the fact is, as they've taken it for granted that their daughters wouldn't get drafted, but I told that many radio shows and TV shows as soon as you put women in ground combat, how are you going to be able to say you can justifiably stop putting it having them in the draft? So here's the thing, the bulk of the women don't want to go in the infantry for a multitude of reasons. We have 45% less muscle mass 20% less won capacity. And I hear women in the army particularly want to get mad at me and say, oh, you're against women's rights. Say, you are not thinking this out. Even if a woman can get through the training, what are her odds of surviving hand to hand combat with the enemy? Because that's what Fallujah was. This is equivalent to putting a woman in a mixed martial arts cage with a man. You can not believe pounds or 80 pounds of equipment. And not only that, the enemy tends to fight on methamphetamines and other drugs. So that right there. Two. Even if you pass the training, your odds are you're going to be at the lower percentile of the men. Unless they've done so many accommodations, they've lowered the standard. You now have
Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff Describes When She Knew She Was Different
"Welcome back to one on one with Marine Corps guttery sergeant Jesse Jane Duff. All right, so you joined the Marine Corps, Jesse James, you don't have driver's license. I want to give you MOS transport. They're going to be driving stuff. Big rigs. I got to ask you first because I'm just curious. What was your favorite thing to drive of all the rigs? Oh, they probably the Mac that when we at least a Mac truck at my commercial motor pole at camp Pendleton base motor transport. They at least a Mac at one time, and let me tell you there was nothing like it. It's like the Cadillac 20 feet up in the air. But I can tell you two of my favorite experiences. One was when I was driving. It was probably a flat nose white. I don't recall the tractor that I was in. And I was hauling heavy equipment to an Air Force Base outside of riverside, California to get offloaded onto a aircraft. And I have to drive through commercial streets, civilian streets, and I didn't have a concept of how I looked. I didn't realize I was pretty. I really didn't. I wasn't even allowed to date for goodness. Yes. Protective family. Straight into the moon. I mean, I knew I wasn't ugly, but I just did. So what happened? Well, so two things. Well, one. What are you wearing? Are you in common? Yeah, it's always in camouflage. So to experiences, being naive like that was very good for me because I was never arrogant or big headed, and I never thought I could. Manipulate people. No, I was always like, I got to prove myself. I got to work harder. Always. I was always like a maniac. So I'm driving this tractor trailer. Now remember looking at the roads and how the navigate the turn. This is a long trailer. And I look down and there's a civilian lady. She looks up at me. Her eyes pop out of her head. Her jaw drops, and then she gives me the biggest thumbs up, you would ever see. Like, she just thought that was so cool 'cause the side of the truck said the United States Marine Corps. I'm in camouflage. The second experience was offloading heavy equipment and, oh, no, to pick up equipment from an infantry unit in 29 palms. So I get out there, that's the desert. I have to back up into and I'm backing up into the dock to load up their hummers. They're humvees. And I jump out of the truck and the look on their faces was absolute shock. Now I'm a sergeant at this point. Marines are professionals. You hear all these horror stories from I'm sorry. In the Marine Corps, they see your rank, you don't hear a PEEP of disrespect. And I'm out of that truck and they'll look on their faces was seriously. She's gonna hold us out of here. You could just see it. And I said, all right, double dogs. I need to get you to drive up the hummers onto the trailer. And they're waiting for me to ask for help to chain it down. But we don't do that. When you're trained in the motor pool, you're taught how to chain down your gear. And again, I'm not thinking I'm a lady opened the door for me or help me. It was a different mindset. And then they stood there and watched me get the underneath those at the chains and then take the break apart, pull it in and clamp them all down all two or three hummers. And then I said, anybody want to ride back to camp Pendleton and that one of them had the balls to get on that truck. And I roll back to campell, guys, I'll see you there. And then they offloaded. But I would say those stood out to me because that's when I realized I was different.
Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff on America's First Openly Transgender Four-Star Admiral
"She's none other than gunnery sergeant, UN United States Marine court Jesse Jane Duff, she worked on the Trump campaign co chair of veterans for Trump and also contributed a fellow colleague of mine on newsmax. Gunny, welcome to one on one. Thank you so much. I love your introductions. I get real big headed. Can't get me out of the studio after that. We will always stick to the truth. You are a gummy always a gunny. We've got to talk about what is happening in the last ten months to our services. As you know, the Marine Corps is especially close to my heart. I've worked with all the armed services but I spent two and a half years in Quantico. The latest breaking news item is we find it. I'm sure the Chinese are most impressed. I'm sure Vladimir Putin is quaking in his boots. We have a transgender admiral. Now thank the good lord, it's not in a real armed service. It's not in the coast guard or the navy. It's in the health corps, but put the footage up. This is what's his name Richard Levine, HHS, who has been made a quote unquote admiral in the health corps by the man who sadly bears the title commander in chief and president sleepy creepy Joe Biden. Jesse Jane, this disturbing turn of events, they're not going to keep this just to the health cor are they. Oh, absolutely not. For example, the national defense authorization act right now in Congress got passed. It has to go up to the Senate still. Got passed, though, that taxpayers would pay for transgender surgery. And vote for military members. Military members. So you could join the military. Now, here's something that a lot of people are not aware. The Trump administration did a year study on this under general Mattis, who was very open minded, maybe a little more so than many of us would have liked. For other issues such as women and ground combat, but getting back on this, general Mattis had this studied conducted and they came to find out that transgenders could join the military, but it would be after they've had the hormone treatment, the surgeries. And they were psychologically fit. So they were actually capable of doing the job. And there would be a 5, I believe it would be 5 years within the time that they are surgery. So that you knew that they had fully adjusted. We know that there are record breaking medical concerns among the transgender community for psychological issues, the what is it? What is it called gender dysphoria things to that effect? And I'm no expert on the topic. And I have no issue with the transgender being in the military, but I have a huge issue with the transgender who is using the military to be non
Do We Really Need an International Pronouns Day?
"Did you know today according to the Department of State? Is international pronouns day? That's right. The Department of State has come out and they've said today on international pronouns day, we share why many people list their pronouns on their email and social media profiles. The branch of diplomacy for the federal government of the United States is on share dot America dot gov says why do so many Americans list pronouns on social media profiles? This is the concern of your government. In the United States, it's becoming increasingly common for people to share their pronouns. Third person personal pronouns are used to describe a person or people in American English grammar as the subject or the object of the possessive. These pronouns include the gender neutral they them theirs, words that traditionally refer to a plural number, but today are used by some individuals who identify as gender non binary. We must be pronoun proficient share America dot gov has during his first few days in office, President Biden has threatened executive order to prevent discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. I know what you're thinking that China's getting really worried about us. Let's put up the picture of our new four star admiral. Who's known as Rachel, this picture of this killer. You know what? This makes general Patton look like child's play. Four star admiral, and so here we have the Department of State, not worrying about Americans being stranded overseas, not worried about the $85 billion in weapons that we give to the Taliban. Not worried about China about to take Taiwan. No, no, but instead, they are worried about national international pronoun, I see. So today's international pronoun day in case any of

I'm here to learn and even if it's an unpleasant door you're here to learn and i learned an awful lot just about maybe a couple of hours spent there listening to that guy just how good these folks are But tremendous education and from there. Went to become the deputies sock pack. So i had all of these beautiful suits and overcoats and things that weren't that offered and then your home in You know aloha attire. Don't throw anything away you never know. And then what you're doing the deputy. What's the deputy position like out there in soccer pack. What are you doing. it was wonderful so In in the pacific sock pack was co located in the same building as the pacific commander. So we actually were alo- a separate sub unified command Admiral prieur who was the pacific. Commander actually made us a part of his staff so well we. We had the best of both worlds that In the morning you know it'd be up there Because the general travel a great deal. And i would be the one that represented sit there with the four star and his his staff. Getting the all of the classified briefings up in the skiff and then down to Another conference room were broader. Audience with the less classified think discussed but going through Interesting things With sending to carry a battlegroups into the taiwan strait at seeing that unfold but we also had a a situation where This was the first time. I really became aware of beheadings We had a group of westerners this is in august of ninety five On vacation through the hindu kush and this was up in The line of control Enshrine hagar and they were captured and held ransom by muslims. Up there and one of the captors norwegian ran away and they caught him and they cut his head off. They put his body on one part of the town and the head on the other part of the town with the ransom note you know on either and the indian military then Came to the ambassador who was The senior ranking ambassador in the united states state department then who went to the secretary and we had to deploy a delta force Assault team there with general pizza maker. Who was the commander so We were doing not command and control for them because the pacific command was doing that but there was nobody in the pacific command. That understood that. So i was standing next to the four stars dessus before i will. Prayers showed up. This was admiral mackey and he had to draft A personal message to the secretary of defense said the chairman every day and I drafted those messages for him and You know he changed a little bit. But it was that time i had at harvard. This is surly. I never would have been able to do that before as they said spelling counted and but he would change a couple things and they were deployed there for forty some days and We we never got the hostage and back so When when the Work there now.

I'm not seen achieve. He goes what's up. I said well you know. I got a little trouble. He says. I'll tell you. What mr mac. You got a broken leg. He said there's no doubt in my mind. You've got a broken leg. So here's the deal you go back in there. You put your medical record in there. I'm not gonna guarantees but if you will the got it out. We'll see what we can do. Yes he new chief and so went back in there. And actually you know was able to was always behind in the runs but i was able to hop on the obstacle course as still finishing top five in that because that's all technique but we used to run as as usually go jaakko from the compound down to the center center beach and coronado which is probably little over mile and then and then in the water so i would be the last one in the water by light years but i would be the first one out of the water so at least the instructors knew that i'm putting out but the other thing. I think that there were thoroughly entertained. That they didn't want me out of that. But you know You know the folks who are out there Instructors the ones that really they are the gatekeepers for who's gonna wind up going to seal team and they are instructors for just a limited period of time and then they go back to the team and the young men that their training a going to become their teammates so for the most part they're sizing them not only to meet the standards. But also kinda say. Is this somebody that. I wanna be a teammate. With and if i get into trouble and i'm in my left is one of these guys in my left and my right and i think that even if i was having a difficult time there i was most fortunate to have good instructors and and back then I mean everybody was vietnam veteran. Everybody everybody had a silver star And i was blessed to have a medal of honor recipient is one of my instructors. Mike thornton and that helped shape me as well. More ways that one but These guys said known the crucible of combat and they were looking at students and nobody really cared if nobody graduated back then but They were looking at Can we trust this guy in combat. And i think that was the standard and i have to say. In retrospect it wasn't me It was the instructors that really showed me tremendous kindness but just a easy Being able to do the stuff that we needed to do at the end of trading there was a class must have been just before it wasn't it wasn't the class eighty five eighty six where literally no one made it. That's correct whoa. What class do you. That was Don't but i think you're close but the other one was Admiral olson's class Wind up With four people in hell week and the instructor has had to help them carry the ibs because they could for guys could carry ninety s and his truck has made up on. Whenever gonna let me six. It's got to be at least next week. Eric had four guys when he has his graduation picture and one of the one of the students is a a foreign student in his class. So three american foreign guy But it was different different. Jeffrey time back then but the instructors out of the back of their belco the ball cap. We made them quit. So it the standards But they were pretty much on their own as far as though what they wanted to do. But i'll i'll be honest with you. These are instructors that i had tremendous respect for and respect for their combat experience. And they were. They were great instructors because they were intense. And if you didn't have the standard Even if you will make the standard and it was tough to see a classmate go. But in retrospect they were right. This guy would not have fit in to us that yeah and then So graduating and then off to jump school which was always airborne. Yeah that's it you know. What are we cost crammed into three else. Go so you airborne school. I'm sure it was the challenge to keep your sure. There's a lot of challenges that everyone's go for you. i can imagine the runs. Were not as challenging as traffic.

Or wherever you get your podcasts. So we're back. You're listening to surprisingly brilliant and I'm about to tell Greg the next huge advance in modern computing that grace's responsible for and it's called the compiler Kurtz about to let us know what that is. The compiler then becomes the translator. So imagine if you're trying to speak to someone in German they don't know English. You don't need German. You need to find a third party that can speak both languages and translate back and forth A. That's exactly what hoppers compiler did it served as the translator between human language and the computer language. And what the great inside of Hopper was beyond that I compiler was she then started realizing well. There are no limitations to what human language means. It can be a bunch of symbols mathematical symbols. It could be German. It could be English. It could be icons and graphics and windows pages controlled with a mouse or the icons on your phone controlled with your finger. Each of those is a human form of language that then gets translated into the ones and zero code that the computer understands said this is essentially an interface or like a way to input something in words or images that we understand that then converted to something. A Computer understands to do the program. Absolutely precisely the compiler way Kurt Express to me is like the middle filling bit in a sandwich. Where the bottom bitter the bread is you as a human target of the bread is the computer and the compiler is the middle because by then at this point in time. Gobber is recognizing this This limitation of computers in a different way where you have to be a mathematician to be able to ask the computer these questions by now. We've moved on computers At this point also think quote unquote in binary so ones and zeroes. Basically a Yes. Or no whether that's a physical component at this point or then we move into digital so with electrons and electric flex. Initially it was a a a switch. Exactly Shoob xactly. Both both yeah depends on the machine. Again they're highly specific to each architecture before a Grayson von Neumann. Come up with this new way of thinking about it and then at that point we do have a method of talking to a computer. That isn't you have to physically program ones and Zeros right because you can imagine how many mistakes you would make if you had to be the one that was like in charge of the correct order of just ones and Zeros. Right rough chain from one to zero you program would be messed up which is better. I mean vacuum cheap in the. That's that's one so we've moved. We've moved past binary like that's that's just not a feasible way to talk to a computer at all and by this point that grace's coming up with these this idea of a compiler. Computers are programmed in machine code which to the untrained eye. Looks like total gibberish? It's called hacks Decimal Code Switz- letters and numbers and you still have to be like a complete expert in exit `small to be able to talk to your computer and ask it to do stuff like a programming. Input would be something like be Zero. Six one eight three seven nine right you know on and on and on and on depending on that. Because that's what you get for of code for color. Yes like different colors have hex coned Exactly And someone very clever has come up with an interface software right where you can click and drag a little eyedropper right. So that's not what we're talking about when we're talking about a compiler that's what's called a graphical user interface or a gooey here. We're talking about the step. Before that the compiler grey says okay. I WANNA be able to have anybody be able to talk to a computer. I don't want somebody to have to be hex decimal expert or a mathematician. We need something that will make computing accessible to more people than just science and research. Wonderful Grace. Yes we love her so important in like communication of those things these days early the Raspberry Pie that love me raspberry Pi and so. She is working on this at Harvard. The war has ended. She's done her work with von Neumann. She's still working hard on making these advancements to computing and in nineteen fifty two. She has the first operational compiler and she says in an account of that time in reflecting in her memoirs. She says nobody believed that. I had a running compiler and nobody would touch it. They told me computers could only do arithmetic so she has to advocate hard core and it takes her years. We see this in in a number of these stories where people are. They claim to have done a thing and people like Nas not possible or just close down all they do actually do a thing and people guy not sorry. Conti things. We'll just look at it. Just try just give it a shot and see what happens. I promise you it's going to change the world and again I think we've we've pointed this out a couple times too that looking back on it with this other. Lens in you know from our our modern perspective. It's always like yeah. Of course they should have used it but at the time. It's a huge shift in the way of thinking. So there's pushback. She has to really advocate for it. She comes up with the first English like programming language. Where you can type into a computer in English and granted it's still commands like pole and then parentheses whatever your data set is or whatever it may be. It's not free flowing English to be. You can't say please do this computer. Thank you how you doing today. We'd be great if you could possibly. But you're using English words as opposed to a coded series of random numbers and huge huge and that code called flow matic. And it's something that you kind of assume was done right from the start of Computing Zach Control. But actually now let me know that know that comes in later in had to be developed. Exactly by hopper. And I'm about to tell you how fundamentally it it's not just computing but also the entire world because flow matic. That first English like programming language makes way is the the foundation for something called cobol which grace develops and then continues to develop for years after she first comes up with that she also keeps tending to it and COBOL stands for common business oriented language. Right he is still happening in the navy. Yes yes actually. She is still in the navy because she doesn't retire until she's like eighty three. So yeah all of this is happening underneath kind of Navy exactly right in a paper about her life. Somebody gives an account of this impetus. That grace has for doing this. This desire and I really love the way they put it. They say Admiral Hopper believed that the major obstacle to computers in nonscientific and business applications was the dearth of programmers for these far from user friendly new machines the key to opening up new worlds to computing she knew was the development and refinement of programming languages languages that could be understood and used by people who were neither mathematicians nor computer experts. And She's absolutely right. I think scratch. I've seen the kids use to kind of learn logic and programming languages. Actually because there is those simple words that you can reorder and they use it tomato animations and run programs online absolutely. It's such a powerful tool to be able to use their own language to actually programming and see it all comes back to hopper it. Does Kobe cobol yes. Cobol and there are other languages being developed at this time so she did flow matic beforehand. Which was the precursor to it. Four Tran is a is a popular. A scientific coating mechanism at the time a programming language. But it's not as user friendly it's not as oriented towards a non science person as Kobaliya's and Kurt is about to give a sense of just. How drastically COBOL? And the compiler change our modern world. So for instance in the early sixties. There's a a young man who learns Cobol.

"Or wherever you listen to podcasts. This story yes is a moth K. The atomic bomb and one very small determined woman she smaller than the off and not quite almost not quite story and they all tied together to create this thing. This amazing thing that pretty much. You probably have never heard of that. Pretty much underpins. The entirety of the way our modern world works from Walmart to the stock market to the smartphone in your pocket but I. This is surprisingly brilliant. A science history. Podcast from Seeker that tells the stories of surprising and brilliance discoveries ideas and people. I'm Greg Hi sorry I'm awake honest. Hello don't have a clue what we're going to about. I love that allows so excited to be Merrin. Your storyteller expect to be married. I'm always excited but I'm even more excited to be telling you this story. So we start with the woman in question. She's born in one thousand nine hundred six to two math loving parents in the nineteen twenties studies. Math at Vassar which is a prestigious university in the United States and she goes on to receive one of the first. Phd's ever awarded in mathematics at Yale University. And that's not first. Peachy ever awarded to women in mathematics at Yale its first. Phd's ever in Mass was. He wasn't even of course against his PhD but that was wow was one of the first ever PhD's mouth. She's on the brink and I got to talk to Dr Kurt. Beyer who is a former naval officer? He's currently a professor of entrepreneurship at UC Berkeley. And he wrote a book all about this woman and her impact on the world or when I first started teaching at a University of California Berkeley and I would bring up. Grace Hopper's name. I was just shocked that. Here's a class of people who want to be entrepreneurs in silicon valley many of whom want to go into the tech industry and almost to a person none of them knew who grace hopper was And it was very disappointing in in many levels grace hopper grace hopper. That's were talking about. I'm sorry to say I don't know of Grace Hopper. Kurt would be disappointed in you know he wouldn't be disappointed in you. Actually he'd be disappointed in the world. That sort of has erased her name from a lot of history. But I think that's changing so when we start with her career at the very beginning she's in the nineteen twenties she's a mathematician and I was kind of surprised that she gets this far in her mathematical career. Right in the nineteen twenties as a woman. And Kirk kind of set me straight on that. I think what most people Fail to understand. Is that women's progress in terms of their abilities to create careers in the sciences and mathematics is not a progressive line are actually greater opportunities for women in the nineteen twenties. Then there were four women All the way up until about the late one thousand nine hundred eighties so agrees hopper in essence was born At the right time to the right families so ten years later twenty later she may not have actually had the opportunities the word valuable to her in the nineteen. It's the perfect time because think about it. World War One has just happened so many men have just gone off to war and either they were just gone fighting for Fred. Were they all died? And so women have to step into these roles that they haven't been allowed into before during wartime right so they get this taste of while we can do stuff we can use our brains to do whatever we want not that they weren't before but you know in the professional sphere. I wonder if also top of that during World War One when all those men left whether that gave actually an opportunity to the women that remains to step into some of those jobs at the men were doing before they let yes exactly. That's what I'm trying to say. That's that's what I mean. They do already been if they array taken those roles and been seemed to be successful. In those roles there was a bit more trust So in the nineteen twenties. We're seeing this Remnant of that period of time but then in the nineteen thirties. There's this push back. She becomes a professor at Vassar College. And although she's she's content there and she a definitely makes the best of her experience. There Overachiever in so many ways. I I sense that there is a certain amount of frustration that after getting these degrees in mathematics that Heard time in the thirties was theoretical and she wasn't engaging necessarily in practical mathematical matters says she's a professor of mats and as you say is a pushback. I guess that's because the men kind of being like only one out jobs back one point before in the twenty s. It was like you're a woman may use your brain and do cool stuff and then we sort of slide back a little bit like no not like that. Only use your brain for certain things like teaching or nursing theory rather than practice teaching. Which Kirk goes on to say. It's not that she doesn't love teaching. But women often get relegated to educational spheres to nurturing spheres and he gets the sense that grace really wanted to be on the forefront of pushing mathematics forward and that is what happens because everything changes for the US. Unfor- grace in nineteen forty one. When something pretty major happens which is to World War Two is when the US enters World War. Two is nine hundred forty one after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. And so this is this is what happened to grace is after. Pearl Harbor She. She worked very hard to find her next career. Outside of teaching outside of Vassar and so initially she actually went into cryptology and started working with former professors from Yale and this would have been probably the the most practical path for after a Pearl Harbor and one that was well attuned to her mathematical skill sets It was at that time. Also that she wanted to join the navy and she didn't have to join the navy to work in cryptology but she definitely had a fascination with being in cut kept mentioning. Cryptology cryptography during that clip. I was googling. Could cruel verse. Cryptography with CRYPTO. Kathy which I know about is the art of creating code. Exactly cryptology is the study of coats exactly both creating and sold both sides. You sold them to encrypt healthy. You get out of here so the story about being in the Navy I think is is so cool and so funny because lake. Kurt says she doesn't have to be in uniform. She doesn't have to be in the military to do this mathematical cryptological work but she has a grandfather. Who was an admiral in the navy and an uncle who was the head of the Marine Corps? And she says to herself like. Hey I want to be one of those guys to Alson that love of math interesting cryptology with family history and ambition to go into the navy exactly. But here's the thing. She's not successful on her I try. She tries multiple times to join the navy but she keeps getting turned down by. Yes the first time it was because they weren't actually even accepting women into the navy or at least not into the places that she was applying. They couldn't be active service members but then after they do start letting women serve. She gets turned down again because of her age. She's thirty seven time. Been trying to get in when she was because of her stature. She doesn't the physical requirements smallman. She's five three and she's pretty underweight for height so the military is like. What are we going to do? Hugh Grace I mean. No don't need to be told to both create unsolved codes. And that's what Kurt says. And of course that's owed ridiculous. Given the fact that her mathematical knowledge and skill sets in the type of jobs she would be doing for the navy anyway when require her to To be a certain height and weight too. Good Point to point technically. She's going to be closer to the codes on the go. Something it'll be fine so she finally tries again in nineteen forty three. That's her her last attempt. And she's finally accepted as a member of the naval reserves. Where she is sent to do what she does. Best which is mass. Kurt actually kind of calls it a bureaucratic miracle of the military because she sort of gets kind of randomly assigned to go work at Harvard. University to work on. Cryptography stuff making a breaking of codes and she goes to Harvard because they have a machine called the mark one which is what they're calling at the time a large scale automatic calculator which sounds a lot like a computer exactly.

"Good Morning America. This is the cats roundtable try casper. Td's here Sunday morning. Let's go to the world what's happening all over the world witnessed. Today is one of the experts that I know knows more a lot more than I do a lot. More than than a Lotta people. Admiral James. The res He was in charge of NATO four years thirty seven years in the US Navy and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO. That was is exact title. And he's currently with the Carlisle Group. Hopefully making a Lotta money. Good Morning Admiral. How are you and do a great job? It's good to hear Your Voice Admiral. There's so many things going on around the world. I wish we start. Should we started Asia. Hong Kong China North Korea. We've got a lot of stuff just in Asia what what's going on. Let's start with this With China in these riots that are recurring Hong Kong. John Needs are quite important in the sense that potentially they could have an impact on China over time And sometimes you know doors. Big Changes Swing on small injuries. So is a series of disturbances. Riots I is something the. US is supporting as assure you know Eh. Congress has passed Awa- supporting the protesters. The president has signed there which I think is the right thing to do But China John at the end of the day is not going to simply will drift away from it. So we're GONNA see more riots more disturbances. I think we're GONNA see the Chinese roller there with tanks. I don't think we'll have a gentleman square to type of situation and I'll tell you why John it's because because the Chinese are worry about Hong Kong of course but there whealy desirous of getting Taiwan as part of China to do that. They've gotta show that they can manage that situation and China of a one nation two different systems in shown that they're willing to allow Hong Kong some level of Independent activity. That's how they'll be able to Taiwan so watch for that Those disturbances to continue. US will be supportive. China won't roll in there and farce. That one's going to just kind of move along long into the new year I predict now I was a little bit confused on Taiwan. Are you saying they would inferior arbitrarily. trone go in with China. Or what do you mean what. The Chinese hope John is that overtime can peacefully convinced to you. Want to make a decision to become part of China. I think that's very unlikely having visited Taiwan many times. I've been in contact with the the president of Taiwan Madame Si- It is highly unlikely but China's strategy overtime is to try and pull Taiwan toward them so they know the Taiwanese are looking carefully at what's happening in Hong Kong and I think that puts a little bit of a speed brake on Chinese Chinese Dramatic activity against the protesters in Hong Kong North Korea. The president has said that he's an have Christmas surprise any idea unfortunately Look for a long range elicit this'll all of that. So let's back up The President I think quite correctly has been on a track of negotiation with Kim Jong Un. You'll recall we started out with fire and fury and moved to carrier battlegroups Then we moved to negotiation. which is the right place for this But we really haven't made any progress in Almost a year Kim Jong UN has become very frustrated with this because he needs relief from Sanchez. That's how he can demonstrate his people that he's a player on the world stage that he's negotiating toe to toe with President trump and he's getting results. He hasn't gotten anything so far so John. Unfortunately I predict he's going to revert bad behavior. What I suspect we're going to see is a pretty long range range ballistic missile And then he's going to say to the trump administration. I'm going to resume a full blown testing of long range missiles. I've a big increase my number of nuclear warheads. He's going to try and force the president our president back to the bargaining table. The other place where I think we're having major. The problems is what the country having major problems is Iran Iran Triple the price of of gasoline to their people and and they're out there. Rioting and the Iranian army is mowing them down with machine guns. I understand what are you here. That is correct in there also arresting hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of the protesters many of whom are just ordinary people. Well John Who Feel that their economic lifeline is being crushed. you're on. The government is responding to the maximum pressure campaign of the administration restriction by raising prices. Because they have to in order to deal with the deficits and the collapsing Konami so they're raising prices of for example subsidize gasoline on. This is having a major impact and a lot of the rioting as result of economic displacement displacement. But there's also real disatisfaction broadly speaking in the populace with the Mola's religious leaders as well as with the civil elected government of the country. So there's good news and bad news here The good news is we're seeing a real effect of the Sanctions at the trump administration has put in place And it is causing disturbances inside Iran. That's as a general proposition in a good thing. Here's the bad news John. The bad news is that much like Kim Jong Un who I think is going to lash out and move. His weapons is program. I think you're gonNA see the Iranians were also too bad behavior in their case but for them to attack another tanker in the straighter for Blues. Look for them to increase the number of centrifuges devoted to their Once defunct nuclear weapon program look for them to energize organize their terrorist. Allies has a law against Israel looked for them at the far end of the spectrum to make another attack on Saudi infrastructure structure. I think all those saints will be on the table and by the way Newsflash the Iranians. It's it's the Islamic Republic of Iran. I could care less about Christmas. So Watch for this to start occurring Both in the case of junk in the case of Iran frankly over the holidays in into the early part of the year so bottom line in both parts of the world Fuck Lop Because I think both of these criminal regimes both North Korea. Iran are GONNA WANNA step out and And they also close this John on they also recognize the turbulence in Washington. Right now. Distraction of Your Agency distraction of the Congress wherever where you are and the political spectrum about that that reality is that it ties down the executive branch and makes the executive branch. It's less capable of responding quickly to these kind of crises over the belt way. Do we go from here. Admiral I mean I get emails from our our Friends in Greece that the Turkish people they they're getting refugees on along the islands and then going to the mainland land and everybody's complaining except the government in the I think the situation John is the better Tarini in C- He's getting as confused. As is the land situation along the Turkish Syrian border and in both cases as you're seeing upticks in the numbers of refugees who are trying to get away from these war torn areas leaving Syria leaving Lebanon which also experiencing way it's disturbances in all of that bleeds across the achieved. See coming from from the Turkish land mass onto the Greek islands As you and I go no. There's a new government in Greece. You'VE PROBABLY MINISTER MR which donkeys. He's I think he's doing a very good job. Thus far in dealing with it or Greece is a small nation. Over ten million people can't support Tens of thousands of refugees indefinitely the way that for example Turkey can so of the European Union has got to work closely closely with Turkey to try and keep a deal going which was in place for a while to keep the refugees on the Turkish side of that border. This is all part of why President Earn Alon has a cut a deal with Russia working with Working against our Kurdish allies. He's also there. He earned one is also very tired of these refugees and is using them as a bargaining chip to. I'm trying to get more economic assistance coverage from the European Union. Admiral you would ahead of NATO for Four years four years I president trump went there and they spoke to a piece and then he got upset and left. What do you? We're here behind the scenes. I think there are three centrifugal forces that are kind of pulling at the NATO alliance at this point John.

"I'm John bachelor, Thaddeus McCotter, my colleague and co-host, and we're joined by Gordon Chang of the Daily Beast China. The People's Republic of China's People's Liberation army navy. They they they deploy gray hulls. That's that's a naval warship. But as we learned from Ericsson, a professor of the naval war college who spoke to us sometime recently about this. There are more than just gray hulls advancing the case for the navy especially in the South China Sea. Andrew with his colleague Ryan Martensson have published China's maritime grey zone operations. That's available frothy officers and cadets. However tonight, we emphasize that the financial times the major financial publication from London. This is the pink paper has picked up on Andrews analysis, and others and publishes. This fact, Admiral John Richardson, head of the US navy says he told his Chinese counterpart vice Admiral Shenjie long in January. Nineteen that Washington would not treat the coastguard or maritime militia, that's Whitehall's and blue holes fishing boats that worked with the military differently from the Chinese navy because they were being used to advance Beijing's military operations, professor a very good evening to you. Does this surprise you? John Richardson spoke up have you seen any evidence of the Chinese backed off in their gaming of the South China Sea. Good evening to you. Professor. Good evening. Thank you, John. I think Admiral Richardson's statement is extremely welcome and positive. It's not surprising because it follows on some previous media reporting his own statements as well as similar statements by assistant secretary of defense. Randy Schriver, former secretary of defense James Mattis as well as some other US navy officials, but it's the latest and one of the clearest US officials statements telling China, they can't have it both ways. China's navy can't bear hug the US navy for photo ops and extra sizes. They want as the good cop. Well, the Chinese see force bad cops, the coastguard time militia do. China's sovereignty claims dirty work in the East China Sea in the South China Sea, Gordon. Do you think the Chinese are gonna try and test the navy by taking some of their time Alicia and they're hugging? One of our vessels to see what we'll do. I think that China periodically subjects the US two tests. But I think those tests are most common when it's perceived that there's a significant change in situation a significant change in the relative balance of power or potentially a significant change in policy. So if the administration can make it clear that this is part of a coordinated policy approach backed by strong, determination, and vigilance, I think that will make China much more cautious in how it might seek to test. The US at sea fat is well Cassandra here. What happens if we don't do that? Professor. I think this is a move whose time has come. If we were not to stand up in this way with these forceful statements. I think trying to would be further encouraged to continue it's a salami. Slicing and erosive tactics across the South China Sea attempting to carve it out as as zone of exceptionalism in which Chinese self proclaimed Chinese national laws Trump, the international laws rules norms and freedoms upon which the global commerce and the international system. Depend I think over time that would be a suffocation of this dynamic system. And I think we're rightly opposing it. Professor the the blue hall, so the puzzle here you write in your book that they're not armed and the F is is. Reporting that as confounding everybody because they're not armed difficult to confront them. But however in advancing the Chinese sovereignty or advancing the sovereign case. Are they subject to being boarded and searched can can the US navy or the Japanese navy or any of the allied navies challenge them just the way they were would gray hall that was out of that. There was a conducting itself improperly. Well, that raises issues of rules of engagement and international law there there are some important dynamics there on which I am not an expert what I feel comfortable in saying is that US government of vessels ought to be able to proceed in their missions in international waters without their safety or their operations being interfered with. And I think that's exactly what Admiral Richardson was stating forcefully to his Chinese counterpart, let giving example if we're conducting of freedom of navigation or an innocent passage. I understand there's some type nickel language here. Pass one of the militarized islands the weaponized islands and blue hall. Suddenly get an our way. Can we challenge them to? We know has that ever happened. Can we board them can we arrest them in some fashion? I am not familiar with the legal authorities that might be required for arrests in boarding. But I think what Admiral Richardson statement makes clear is that we can continue opperations of our vessels without being just stymied. Or what I like to say Gulliver is these little blue ships cannot be allowed to tied down our mighty naval vessels as as Gulliver was. I think it's realistic to to avoid that. And I think China has a strong interest in in a void ING an accident in in a sensitive way. So by putting them on notice. I think we can deter them by stating that we're not just going to give in and this is a market content. Trust from out. Thousand nine the the US NS impeccable incident where one of our special mission ships was precisely Gulliver is. Yeah, I think it was an early test of the Obama administration. And I think it was a fundamental error at that point not to have publicized the involvement of maritime Melissa in that incident and in not making trying to pay a price. So there may be legal complexities still now, but I think it's a fundamental improvement. And I think it's resetting the balance of power at sea. We have a couple of minutes. Go ahead garden. Every of in that incident from March studios, and the Chinese vessels tried to sever the towed sonar rave from the impeccable that I think was interference. That was so serious that you can say it was attack on the naval vessel. And I agree with you. We didn't do anything about it. And so we had for instance, similar harassment of victorious, and I just hope that from this point forward that the words are enough to prevent incidents like this. But I'm not sure that they will do we have about a minute at professor. Well, I think we're starting in the right place. And personally, I credit this administration for having a great China team. And for speaking forcefully on the issues of of non into your fear with our vessels and typically each new administration is tested, including it, see. But if you look at this current administration, I don't think we're we've seen that same type of of maritime militia involved tests, and it's hard to prove a negative if not impossible, but I believe that this improved approach has made a difference indefinitely. Reduced the likelihood that China would try to challenge us in that way. And I think we need to keep building on that that is about thirty seconds. If you have a quick question for the professor question. How will we know that this works? How will we know from the Chinese reaction, professor? Can continue lack of stymying incidents is precisely what we're seeking as Admiral Richardson said we we want to keep operating around the world and international waters legal missions doing those good measures. And we're going to keep doing so and if we can keep doing so I think that's precisely the victory. And I think we will professor Andrew Erickson of the naval war college. His most recent book on this subject, I recommend to everyone following the conflict zone.

"I recently talked with Admiral Grady about those on board the USS Monterey that shot the Tomahawk missiles, and he shared, you know, are fighting force was all women that did that one of those rounds all women he said we've gotten to that twenty percent. And now we're seeing women on our leadership, they're recruiting other women. So I do think that getting millennials involved is important. And that's where the movement for women is, and you gotta you gotta get that into the bloodstream of of our military communities. You know, have them on post have a have a young person in the community day on post Fort Hood is huge. It's here in Texas. Can you imagine the outreach recently Veterans Day, and one of the things that we talked about in terms of a way to honor veteran. Rens a military service members and their families is to emulate a life of character service in leadership. And it doesn't matter what your chosen endeavor is whether it's in your professional life or at home in your community or volunteering at in nonprofits, or in your churches. There is a way to live a life of character service and leadership Harris, thanks for you. You you hit. I think the key piece and that is when it comes to veterans, and when we talk about veterans we're talking about family members as well. Not just the one who wore the uniform, but we're talking about their family members were talking about caregivers for those that are ruined ill and injured. And and and our survivors those whose military loved one made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of our nation in our constitution. So it's all of them and connection is the first piece. In connection is a two way street, and that's kind of one of the neat things about these new post nine eleven nonprofit organizations is there majority of them are not veteran only they encourage members of the community to connect and be a part of those whether it's team Rubicon team red white and blue or Santa to here at the Bush. Absolutely. And then once you connect there are a number of, you know, there are some things we specifically asked for fine higher. Employ a veteran and a military spouse a military spouses sixteen percent unemployment rate four times, the national average almost forty percent that want to be employed find themselves grossly under employee. Not leveraging the talent that you described in in your mom. So where I work at Fox News. We have a number of people who are on board with us as Mentese, and these are not, you know, the type of intern that I was out of college. These are people who have served in a tremendous capacity with a kind of stick to of nece, and dedication that. I think sometimes we're all challenged by civilians, those multiple deployments that we've been speaking of, you know, they don't just leave the battlefield they stick in there. And that's the thing their ability to stick who wouldn't want that on their staff. I mean, they infect us with that at Fox News, and I work in a place where we already value that. But oh my goodness. We value it even more because we see them among us. Some of them are even active duty, they'll come in when they're home, and they'll be with us for a month or so, and then we'll all miss them when they leave. And you know, celebrate them as they move forward. It really is a special thing. And I think that, you know, small businesses make up more than seventy percent of those companies that hire people in the country, and we're already seeing our veterans fill out those roles pretty soon small business may overtake these large corporations as a place where we all want to work for. A whole host of issues, but that value sharing with our military members working at those companies is huge. It's a big component of of success for them. And I think for us as a country a Harris faulkners book
