How Democrats Rigged a Presidential Election with Mollie Hemingway

"But kind of walk through some of the things that you found in researching this because this is one of the most under research topics in the history of news. You have the entire news media just not just uninterested, but they're invested in making sure you don't talk about it. Exactly right. So one of the things that I think is very interesting is that the same democratic operative who ran the Russia lie. That was the lie that Donald Trump stole the 2016 election by colluding with Russia. His name is Mark Elias. He was at Perkins cooey which is this big democratic firm. He recently left to start his own firm at more money and have more power and control. And he was the one that funneled the secretive Russia lie. That was where Hillary Clinton paid for opposition research. It was just inventions, lies, that Donald Trump was planning to steal the 2016 election and that he did steal the 2016 election. They actually have kept it going, this entire time. His name is Marc Elias. He's also the guy who ran the democratic operation to change all voting laws leading up to the 2020 election. And that meant different things in different states. So that could be about watering down the integrity of mail in balloting, that could be expanding the period of time in which you vote so that you're not really sure how many people voted or when they have to get their ballots in by. And he has this array of different groups that he works with, whether they're democratic operatives or nonprofit nonpartisan groups that are actually just kind of arms of the Democratic Party, who would have them file lawsuits. And so it was just this wide ranging operation to weaken the integrity of the election system. And because of COVID, you know, this is something that he had been wanting to do for decades, but because of COVID, suddenly all these judges or other people were more amenable

Constitutional Carry Is Now Law in 21 States

"And what's your hottest Second Amendment story right now, cam? Well, I think right now it's the upcoming Supreme Court case. New York State rifle and pistol association versus Bruin, which is going to address the question of whether the right to bear arms actually means anything like the right to keep arms does the Supreme Court answer the question about whether or not we have the right to keep arms in 2008 is the Heller decision, which struck down D.C.'s ban on handguns. And now they're going to be weighing in on the right to carry. They're taking on New York's carry law. So oral arguments are coming up. November 3rd and I'd say as we're getting ready for that to take place, there's a lot of anticipation. That's probably the biggest story out right there right now. And I think that this is a very interesting development because you've got blue states now that are trying to restrict carry more than more than maybe they were in the past. And at the same time, you've got largely red states going the other direction with constitutional carry Texas. Just a month ago became a constitutional carry state. And I believe that that's 26 states. Am I correct on that 26 states? I don't know constitutional carry? I never did 21, 21. I wish we had crossed that halfway point of more than half the country was a constitutional period. Probably going to take another couple of years to get there. But yes, I mean, it is incredible now because just even a decade ago, I think there's a handful of states that said if you can legally own a gun you can legally carry it. Now well over two dozen, there are 42 states that say if you pass a background check and you have undergone your required training, we shall issue UA concealed carry license, but New York, California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, a couple of other states. They have a different view. You can pass the training. You can pass a background check. You can provide the character references that you have to provide in some cases. And still, you can be denied your concealed carry license because you haven't demonstrated a good cause to carry a God. Justifiable need to protect yourself in public. And really, that's the that's the question that's presented to the quarter right now is whether or not these sort of May issue policy that deprived the average American of their ability to bear arms, whether or not these laws are constitutional.

Betsy McCaughey Raises Concern Over Biden's Build Back Better Plan

"There was an excellent piece and there's always an excellent column by Betsy McCall She says never mind the cost just look at the absurd things build back better would buy Now I do concern about the cost but she raises a good point She says the bill is un American as it gets Here are some of its details which Democrats would prefer you not to see judge for yourself First generation down payment assistant Most people work and save for years to buy a home This bill makes them into suckers It gives $6.8 billion to low income first time homebuyers with no conditions It's part of Biden's scheme to increase racial and economic diversity in the suburbs First time homebuyers can get up to $20,000 and never have to pay it back Whether they stay in the home or move for virtually any reason it's free money as long as you're not the taxpayer footing the bill And it's likely a double whammy pushing up home prices for first time buyers who actually saved up themselves Home efficiency rebates the bill offers up to $14,000 to homeowners who lower energy use by installing new heat pumps air conditioning systems insulation and energy efficient appliances It's a pot of gold for homeowners who qualify and tens of billions of dollars in new business for contractors They catch ready Only unionized electrical contractors qualify Only unionized electrical contractors qualified design to twist arms and unionize the workforce Why Because unions bankroll the Democratic Party Racial ethnic minorities also get preferred treatment The bill promises contractors a $200 bonus for each customer served from a community of racial or minority ethnic concentration Whites go to the back of the line and have to hope the money holds

Hearing that was meant to focus on the chaotic. Us withdrawal from afghanistan but repeatedly swerved into questions regarding the general himself when asked me acknowledged talking to washington post author bob woodward for a book that showcased mealey's role trying to avert a crisis over apparent chinese fears that trump might attack beijing in his final months in office the book detailed supposedly secret kohl's with general lease chang of the people's liberation army on the thirtieth of october twenty twenty and again on january eighth and said milley had promised to warn china. I if he were ordered to attack many confirmed the coles said they would not secret to us government officials and that he was acting on instructions from some of trump's top aides to de-escalate tensions. He acknowledged trying to send beijing a message that we are not going to attack you following. Us intelligence indicating china feared an attack. Milley said the colds fit within his mandate to ensure strategic stability. I know i am certain. President trump did not intend on attacking the chinese and it's my directed responsibility to convey presidential orders and intent. Milley told the senate armed services committee milly acknowledged that he also spoke on january eighth with us house of representative speaker. Nancy pelosi who according to the washington post at asked. The general what safeguards were in place to prevent an unstable president from launching a nuclear strike.

I think it should be a whole brand like a page six with the industry. That's my opinion. i'm tired of carrying the mantle. Lincoln can't anymore. I think you should be on all those platforms. I think you should be unlinked in. I think you should be everywhere. And i think you should call rad's arms page six. You heard it here. First people because i think that would clean it up and that would make it in. You should write articles. I think you should write articles. I don't know if you do. You might under a fucking assume name now to retarded to write articles only half retarded the after a rethought and people don't realize that's new england term and only somebody from new england would understand the endearment that comes with a lot of them. I think that's what some of the videos do good because people that have never been there at some of the slang from half a retired people don't realize that we greet each other by saying fuck you do and then blows people's mind anywhere else in the if you ever. We were talking about this last night if we ever talked the way people from boston. New york jersey. That's why like if you notice that shows. I'm gonna say something really good right now so. Write this down if you notice. It shows people who sit together. We'll tell you a lot. And for the most part all like the new england new jersey miami people will tend to all coalescence.

"Story and they took that person to the hospital but then the person with the gun ended up getting arrested and charged because of Storage laws because they let the shit at their house open and exposed because the cops went there because it was a gun gun went off so i thought it was hysterical. You shoot your friend right. You got to get him to the fucking hospital but hold on. Let me put all my shit away. I put all my guns away and lock them up and then we'll go. Don't fucking die here in the living room. I'll take you in a minute. You arrest the fucking guy. Don't fucking die here in my living. That's it's fucking hysterical. That's as punishment enough. You just shot your friend. Your message is supposed to be the parlor pilot down. it's true though. There's a lot of that. And i think massachusetts is far more ticky tack.

Do you think that there's they will still exist in our lifetime or that. They'll become a time where they're gone now. I think dill exist list way too much money involved. Yeah they're just a month. That's what they are moneymaker. It amazes me. Shine in when i look at these shows and i know you've walked around them and talk to the people that amazes me when you go to some of them how poorly run they are and how poorly done they are and like shochu joe for example. It's the only industry-wide show you go to that. There's like no desire to see any speakers. There's no desire to do anything upstairs. You don't actually learn anything. Everybody just kinda walks around and says hi so basically every company's paying rent boot space that's overpriced to put a booth up to say to have a drink at circle bar. Nothing nothing gets done. No deals are made anymore. There's no cool products that came coolest thing that came out of shot show was when the hudson had that pistol. That hudson nine was cool. Gun most probably innovative anything along time. I wanna know what to then bankrupt and money troubles. Yeah i mean my issue with it is. There's one hundred ways it could be done better and there's almost no online presence. There's no and there's almost an air of like like i keep saying too many all white guys. It's just the industries in a position where the gap and i've talked about this one hundred times. The gap between twenty five to forty five year olds and fifty five to sixty five year. Olds is so big right now is so big and understanding media and how to connect with people you go around and you talk to some of these brands and they're like all they have is instagram. They've never been on tech talk. They've never been on anything. They don't know anything exists. Do you ever find like a like an issue with Do you ever talk to brands of people. And you're like what the fuck well i mean. I'll give you a good brand. For example colt for example right. They came back out with their revolvers The cobra the python while they dropped the python. What six months ago will chacho. They had a huge opportunity during the walking dead. That gun was the main gun of the show. Didn't do anything with it. Had an opportunity to make that. Make that gun. Instead of the cobra. You could even released like a kit with it with a the rick. Grimes hats. Something anything. But these i don't know who's running their marketing or who's behind that so. Let's let's release this old old revolver that no one gives a shit about. Its wonder why. We're going bankrupt. They they don't get out of their old ways. Unfortunately the people that by coke cobras. They're all dying it can be plenty of. He was on the market original ones. You know it's just. It's not something that people want. Even the pythons a cool gun but you had that opportunity with with advertising was being done by this this massive tv. Show because sean they don't understand like i they don't understand what free media really is and what it means in the value of it so there's still a battle between you and the company stephen explain that like you're saying and that's a struggle. It's amazing to me. But that's a struggle a couple of companies. That did it good like like taryn they do..

"Think that is. I just perfect. You mentioned naming other countries missiles. A i wanted to talk for a minute about countries you take the to a particularly good job of naming their missiles and and then you know maybe are there countries that like fall down a little bit on the job i you know dunk. Fung is like fine. But it's like it's a fairly anodyne communist thing and they've been they've been going at that one for fifty years so i'm a little tired of it but Maybe some well. I guess it is a little bit of of a hitch to the whole godless communist thing that you don't get a name after you know god. Although i will say the chinese get a little bit of credit for naming their most recent Mars rover after the ancient chinese fire. God so hey that impulse. That impulse is ubiquitous because the other they weren't talking about an american idiosyncrasy. As you point out this is something human impulse name. The most terrible weapons of destruction after a metaphor personification of the same and so to answer your question. I gotta say france. Does it probably better. They did it better than anybody with things. Like haiti's employ thanh you know. The gods of the underworld. I mean very nice. Very nice the us of course project pluto back in the day in terms of a a nuclear powered cruise missile. That we didn't go anywhere with that but regardless the impulse to name it after things they get some credit. The uk had the vulcan bomber israel goes back to the ancient the jericho family right. The iranians have various metaphors from the koran pakistan. Is little bit different. They got famous generals from islamic history. A guy by the way my favorites. That i came across in this is russia one of the russians and that is alexander. The great who was deified after death still rides and conquest day in what we call the iskander missile. That's the i. Guess the persian version of alexandra. But of course you know. North korea's is mars the or version of mars the god of war so this is a international impulse. I would say the other thing. I find really interesting is once you started talking about this. It caused me to pay a lot more attention to our naming conventions for other countries systems and so for example and possibly. This is just a a issue of time in attention. But you know for the soviet union We went ahead and named their systems for them. Because we didn't know their names and add. Sometimes we're insulting. But i think by and large picked pretty cool names for them. But you know we never really did that with china right so you know where whereas you get you get an sat and satan in china. Just get a css four. And it's got no name the koreans the north koreans. We just named things. After places. And i i i i will tell you don i do think was probably probably somebody. Trolling the north koreans. A little bit. But i i wonder about that. Do you think it is interesting that we no longer name other countries missiles. Even when we don't know their designations have noticed the change. The cayenne saturday of the other thing and numbers and all that stuff. I guess it's always been there. It's kind of a mix of as you say the sat satan satan ancient Figure but also the sticks so sticks was in there. That was a a nice one which was the big cruise missile. But but i just watch the patterns and so all of those ss. What does that stand for surface to surface. And the is the chinese surface-to-surface But they were all began with an s. Right good pattern. Good consistency a beauty to consistency here. Then with the soviet slash russian surface air missiles various kinds. They always begin with g. If i'm not mistaken and so think you're griffen your your gazelle and so forth. So i never let's think there's there's something to admire about the consistency even if it kinda ran out of gas for for the post-soviet countries. Yeah in addition. There was the gorgon. And that's actually one of my favorite thing. I've ever done an interview. Where the director general of of the of the place was making the surface air missiles actually got asked in russian in something gets lost in translation with just makes this to me infinitely funny. He's talking about the one thirty five he says you know. So we've created the long range interceptor. Missile the five one six and the person asks. Is this the missile. That nato calls gordon getting getting gorgon wrong gordon. And just with total disgust. This guy says we do not give names our missiles as though it's not like he thinks that we're going around like this gordon and this is tim. This is alice so we didn't quite get well. he may have been smacking down. The little bit know the russians have a lot of literary. Yeah the news appropriate artillery right right very literary and they've got to talk about russian history. They've got a lot of lot to draw but they've got russian artillery named carnations. And so by joking here as you know when the tomahawk missile has the nickname of of the homework. Because it's about when the us navy cares to send the very but the russians they send carnations. So this there's a whole lot of literary and flora and fauna kinds of things out there all of the place. Yeah i think it's it's just a it's just such a rich and interesting field night. I just am so happy that someone else appreciates the time and effort that comes into thinking about these systems in ways that aren't purely Just stare all and dad but trying to breathe life into them. You said you were getting those different reactions. I mean are. Are you finding that some people are are willing to sort of pick up the mantle and say you know yeah. We need better names absolutely and again. That's why i'm hopeful about the the renaissance here. I think it's again showed up in that senate hearing but it's also sean off and other places people recognize that i'll just say when when a a certain aircraft name comes out and it's just sort of bland people comment but when there's something lively and vigorous it's like strong god's versus week god's kind of kind of a thing so i think there is a desire and i i give credit for instance to the valkyrie valkyrie and skype war gaming. That's those are kind of cool. Those are two air force drone programs. You know again. The valkyrie being from the scandinavian pantheon. But like that's that's good. That's that's the way we should be thinking and the good news is. There's lots of names left so again. The piece is called saving missile muse of gods and heroes america's most fearsome weapons need better names in war on the rocks. Tom carrico thank you so much for joining me. Thank you jeffrey dahmer. Glad there's somebody else out there..

"Tomahawk. And then you get like your peacekeeper missile. But of course also the minute man. And then there's the sort of the smaller things like the honest john which is a texan who is maliciously in stereotypically prone to telling tall tales. Yes i'm i'm from texas but ancient pagan gods americans. Those are kind of your first two categories and my telling the story here. Is that somewhere. Along the way our weapons system namers lost their mojo and it kind of is the late ninety s or early eighties early nineties. And that's kinda see this acceptance tolerance. This crutch of acronyms so album. The album nuclear. I'm christmas never got a proper name like what's up with that. I don't understand. But there's a handful of others. And so you point out the gbs st and so and things like that there hopefully moving towards something proper but is it going to be inspirational was going to be something that is humane and and and and appropriate to the fame being named or is it going to be something a little more. I would say less imaginative. I mean it seems to me that there's a whole generation of names that come out of a very specific Period in american history. Where like there were a lot of westerns on tv. And that's kind of what people gravitated toward But it is sort of point more more movies have been made about wider and the ok corral then all us presents combined. There's something about the west that sings to the american soul. Yeah but for some reason that that that stops right. And i guess the two things i wanted to ask about our. Why do you think we lose the names from mythology. Which i just love right. I'm of a of a certain generation is as sister a classicist. I you call a missile. Thor i am there for that right. We're gonna put somebody on the moon. I need a saturn. Yeah yeah i do but but that that that that's gone you the way of the way of the dodo bird. Well see i tend to think that there is. There's hope for renaissance to use a phrase with that and i point out for instance the artists. I don't think nasa could come up with a more elegant and artful name for the successor to the paulo. Then the twin sister artemis which also of course reflects the intention to bring sega sending woman to the worse. But i would say there is a persistent and and if you look around a recurrent desire to get back to those to walk with giants say and so the the the marines ground-based anti-ship missile is called nemesis right now. That's an acronym for navy marine. You know such and such but the very fact that weapon system look at darpa arp. Rfp's all the time the to make acronyms into classically sounding things that reflects that desire to get back to something a little better but the other thing of course in this is a little bit more serious and fundamental is the decline of of the liberal arts and the decline of the study of the things that that you're talking about. And i linked to a story for instance by an article by cornel west and the washington post recently bemoaning the shuttering of the classics program at howard university of what that reflects as we're sort of the the decline of attention to these two philosophy and the classics league is a societal loss. And so. I had several classes assistant types. Look at this before. I i went with it and they said one of them said you know the problem tom. Nobody knows who the heck ajax's right but nonetheless there's A heuristic value to naming them for high thanks to point people towards that so when the navy talks about the aegis weapon system there is a built in four deployed metaphor to egypt the shield zeus now does every sale or coming into the navy. Know that going. no they'll learn it. Yeah i'm half terrified that we're gonna end up with missiles named after marvel characters if if if we try to resurrect that seems to be where where we're culture is at the moment but you have you have some ideas right the things that we could do and and things that can make that better and i'm curious curious about your your thoughts And i know you have for example a better name for l. Rso which has to be the. I'd just observe empirically when i tell people earned in the defense field. It's the worst acronym we have. Well i do point out that. The b twenty one used to be the l. s. b. and the air force to his credited. Come in and name that the raider so kudos for that. I'm hopeful therefore that it will get a good name. So yeah you're right. I do have ideas and as it turns out when you creek. Open the door to the pantheon. Not all good names have been used. There's still a lot of really really good ones in there. And my suggestion for eller. So is a cruise missile. You want something that suits the features tactical characteristics of the thing. Being named my suggestion is ulysses ulysses the wanderer because the long range cruise missile that would loiter evade and be re targetable to new adventures as a metaphor for ulysses also known as this use who took a while getting home from the trojan war and had all kinds of adventures on the way back. So that's the point here is not to say it has to be this but to say they're the pantheon's were full and if you just use a little bit of imagination you can come up with some good stuff now now. I'm i'm on the record of just wanting to defy silos rather than doing so i. I'm happy with trident But if we do go with. Gps yeah what are we gonna do about that. Because that his also a terrible terrible aggregate well and as i say about gps. St when you get what is it. What is it that makes it terrible. What what makes it. And my answer is is insufficiently human. It is a perfectly logical description of what it is but it is too much logos and mythos and so my suggestion. For icbm's the premier category that there's two categories ancient pagan gods american heroes. And i suggest a few. I think my top suggestion. Here's zephyr first of all it's got a little zip these say and oh by the way. It is a sublime answer to the pacing threat of our time to china. What do i mean by that. China's dongfang or eastwind series. That's all they're big missiles. Well i kind of like zephyr. Who is the god of the east of the west wind. So there's a little bit of poetry but also you know as we said great power competition kind of jazz going on there but others like nemesis. Who is the god of goddess rather of rightful retribution that strikes me as a good metaphor for deterrence as well. I love zephyr. There was a minor league baseball team out of denver in the eighties called zephyr. I.

"We want names of of some quality. Yeah i i have to say. One of the things that is a pet peeve of mine is when i'm in a community where people don't value making things beautiful and nice and they treat that as kind of a frill or something frivolous and certainly when i for me that motivation to do things well and to do things. Beautifully is integral to the commitment. I bring some things we we we fight about this all the office because i care really deeply that satellite images and the annotations we put on them. Look beautiful and people are often like you just slap some words on it and it's like no you want to engage with this stuff so i think that's i think that's exactly right One of the things i liked about the piece was that you spent a lot of time thinking about what makes for a good name and and i. I was taken by your suggestion. That you know that there are both rules But then your sort of appreciation for the beauty that emerges from patterns as well as for the opportunities to deviate from those patterns in in meaningful moment. So i if you talk about kind of how you think about naming conventions i would love that. Thank you if you're i think you're right. There are broad conventions and there's a certain pride that warfighters soldiers sailors airmen and so on take from the names whether it's the the right around the paladin or abrahams. Or what have you or or or sailor shooting a tomahawk missile these kind of things but the beginning of all this was just to study the history and study the patterns of these. You know the fact that army tanks almost invariably named after army generals right or the fact that army rotary aviation which is to say helicopters are since nineteen forty seven. I think it is forty nine named after native american indian tribes done with their consent. And all this kind of respectful kind way all the way up until recently. Twenty twelve with the latest. Look lakota. But you kind of put all this together and i try to piece these patterns together and i it with three broad categories for weapons. One story which you'll appreciate you know. Yes there's there's logos there's the rationality of things a serial numbers but there's also the mythos and human beings need story or narrative whether it's the air force naming things after star wars characters whether it's russia and things after anti terrorist poems and the like we liked story. And you could. There's a thousand examples of that. The second is honor. And you know what you hold up for for praise or blame reflects what you hold dear whether you are the senate naming your office buildings whether you're talking about confederate basis or whether you're talking about virginia and ohio class submarines right the air force named after leading lights like sh- river in whiteman and the like and then the third category is the past and this tends to especially bleed into nuclear things you know. This is something about nuclear destruction that tends to bring to mind the as robert heimer said you know i am become death. Destroy world that ancient text or the fact that when bernard brodie wrote about strategy and the missile h. He opens it with a with a rumination on milton from paradise. Lost something like that. But likewise there's the us navy and resurrecting and reusing historical ship names by the way. There's no topic more controversial. In congress i think than naming ship names. But the fact that the navy's reinvigorated kind of world war two era fish named submarines and some of the first frigate names from the country's founding and of course the enterprise as a four class carrier. I mean that's going back to the past and and sitting within a certain pattern and all that sort of thing so those are the three broad harry's for weapons systems. Broadly and then i kinda suggest there's special categories nuclear armed missiles as work yet. I wonder if you could talk about the patterns for nuclear missiles but you also had a an observation that i thought was insightful. that three syllable dame's tend to work or at least no more than three syllables. And so i wonder if there are just kind of rules that you've come up with. I was a sucker for the three syllable names because the thing i teach my students is the whole world is divided into twos and threes. If you have a list of four year list is too long And i just think it's how the human brain works and so it was really interesting that you picked up that aspect of human nature that strikes me. Well first of all if you just take a look at the dod regulations some of it's a little odd but some of it's actually pretty sensible. Which is you want to be consistent with your naming conventions and this goes back decades and decades by the way consistent with parents names you know if there's patterns follow them to some extent make it easily pronounce a bowl inspire pride and so for instance. The army has some new short medium range long range missiles coming online. You know they're gonna want something to attached to those things inspires pride in the young eighteen nineteen whatever year old soldier. That's gonna operate them but then they have to be easily spoken again. This is human beings. We're talking about and so you know it's like the way we talk about the the russian violating missile with a series of letters and numbers. Well that's fine. But you want something that a sergeant can yell or the or a soldier can can yell with some prize. That's just again the fact that we're talking about human beings the one and a half fried and the minute man missile that they're operating as opposed to some series of letters and numbers in a second about other about the naming conventions that we play to others. But i have to say. I love that. The intelligence community decided to name that imf treaty violating cruise missile. The screwdriver gets they screwed us. But but all that aside for a second. I love our early missile names. I i like our later. Missile names sorta. You know they're fine but not quite as much. And i hate the jargon names. I don't i don't understand how you go from atlas to but but somehow we have wondered if you you'd say something to the changing patterns and what's going on there. Yeah so i would say look. I think there's an analogy here. Which i make a very subtly. Which is you know. In in greek mythology there was the the titans and then there was the next generation of the gothi olympians and the very early in the beginning when the world was young. The cold war is kicking off. Nuclear weapons were new thing. We reach to greek mythology the in those days. Yes homework clue turkeys. Thanks for studying the school. And maybe just sort of made instinctive sense to reach to the most destructive or the most archaea typical ideas to reflect these things atlas titan thor jupiter and the like but the next generation. Is you as you point out Was a different category. The name that i put to. It is american heroes allders relationship between gods and heroes of little subtle. But i'm thinking here like a native american indian tribes navajo.

"Non-proliferation jeffrey lewis. A professor at middlebury institute of international studies have been ranked and the founding publisher of the arms control. Long clock errands. Busy doing other things today and so instead we have a special guest. Csi as tom carrico. Who's written an article called sing. Missile news of gods and heroes america's most fearsome weapons need better names in war on the rockets. How're you doing. Well thank you jeffrey. You happen to be heard. I i am so excited. I loved this piece And i know why. I liked it. But i'm curious. Why are you the other person in the world who cares about this. What on earth lead you break. This remarkable thing. Well i. it's one of those things that just were been percolating in the back of mind for years and years Part of it. Is i think. Just a study of cold war history. Study of the the names that we've attached to the atlas and the the titan and the jupiter and then for the air missile defense. Things like nike nike got us of winged victory. I mean those were names where when we believed in the mission as it were we attached. Strong god's marquee god's to to the missile names. And you know also just sort of being that type of person that pays love attention to programmatic vir- air and missile Defenses but then also in the strike side and it's just been something that's percolating back there in the background mind and i think possibly my background and classics local philosophy had something to do with it. Too yeah i wanted to ask you that because that came as a real surprise to me. And it's it's not atypical. Background for our field. So tell me about that for a second. Yeah i guess you could say this sort of coming out piece if you go to capitol hill and you pull out your business card and say hey i'm a phd and local. Science people tend to look at you funny and so two when you talk to missile engineers or warfighters and say ask any political philosophy in college they look at you a little funny so i don't tend to talk about it much but Spent a good bit of time. Both in undergrad and graduate school studying political philosophy homer the classics that sort of thing before ajax was a toilet bowl cleaner. He was a character of sophocles. Play kind of thing and i. I spent a lot of time on that. Well you'll get no argument for me. I i was a philosophy major in college. And i didn't like the ancient so much as i liked Modern epistemology sts. But i found it was a fantastic education and i will say that i do not regret picking matt as as my undergraduate major. I also have a soft spot for the classics because my sister a classicist. I'd say the same thing i'll say that The the further away from my liberal arts roots moore. I appreciate it and the more you recognize what you don't have when you when you don't know who homer characters are over. What have you had a lot of fun with it for that for that reason but also is just words. i also have a a banged. The banged the spoon on the high chair. Frequently about wars like hypersonic being on grammatical and i tend to find that no very few topics in defense policy are not informed by opening a dictionary or especially in etymological dictionary and defining what it is that you're talking about you know whether it is multi domain this data the other thing or hypersonic that thing just open a dictionary. What literally does the word me. That tends to be healthy. Yeah i i always found when people were curious you know. What would you do with a philosophy degree. I my my answer would be like. Yeah what could. I possibly do with an education and how to think correctly clearly and rigorously about things. What could you ever simply with that right. So what kind of reactions are you getting to the peace as you say it's about The idea that are our major weapons systems extensively. It's it's about the next. Icbm currently called. But really it's broader than that. It's about our major weapons systems need better names and the reactions i would say fall into two three categories one. The first categories those that tend to be of a certain age. That kind of smirk and say. Hey that's clever. And i remember steadying homer in high school or something like that or reading plutarch and i get it. I get the joke. The second categories those that tend to be especially of the classical bent and like. Oh my goodness this is what i study for living and nobody ever pays attention to this and i didn't even know that there was this thing in the military aspect of this. The third reaction is those that have no idea what i'm talking about and it's a little bit of a during the headline. What's the difference. Why can't we just name. Our our missiles are weapons with with acronyms and bunches of letters and numbers. Well i mean so. I i have my own answer but that does naturally the question like well. Why why can't you. Why isn't jasim good enough as i say so explanatory but but you actually bothered to explain. The rationale for for why the modern naming conventions leave a lot to be desired. Yeah well i think the answer is a philosophy background person yourself. I appreciate the answer is that we are human beings and human beings while aristotle tells us human beings are by nature. Rational animals as it turns out. We're not always entirely rational Were were mimetic and and you know what we need good stories and there is just some fundamental human desire that we need names. I don't walk around with serial numbers. We have social security numbers. And you know when you walk into the dmv or something. You're just a number and yet to each other in our personal relations we are. We have names and that that is the source fundamental source of our desire for naming things whether it be animals or or aircraft. Or or what have you. So it's this route is the fundamental cause and i'll tell you this came up in a recent senate. Hearing when christine warmoth the nominee for the secretary of the army she was asked by senator. Hey what's up. With prism and l. r. h. w. and next generation combat vehicle. You know soldiers don't want to ride around in in a next generation combat. You know they want to ride around in abrahams. they don't want to shoot an irqah. Extended range can't artillery. They want to shoot a pallet. So there's just something about human beings.

"Hidden from the demons but the moment you speak it out to somebody else somebody who does not have that kind of protection there evil spirits or the spirits who monitoring spirits. Were watching them say aha. Here's a military intelligence. And i'm going to say to general satan. This is why we need so much to have through the holy spirit. The gift of discernment discernment of spirits is a gift of the holy spirit. And it's not justice. Earning right from wrong. Evil from good is also to discern. Is this a person that i can be totally free with saying anything i want to about god's plan and i'm totally safe They don't have demons who are going to report me to satan. We need to be discerning in who we talked to and when in doubt heap it silent. Don't say anything to somebody. Let it become a surprise to them after the fact and the other thing to keep in mind the other thing to do which is so important is to remember that god. The father cares so much about you that he will take good care of you and he'll get you through any obstacles that do come up anything that the demons due to try to interfere. Jesus stronger than that. And he has the victory. The father holds you in the palm of his hand. Let me reach you. Another scripture one more scripture. Let's let's go to that other scripture. This is psalm. Sixty four verse two. It's a prayer. Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked from the plots of evildoers. This is what god the father wants. Do we need to remember. The godfather are loving. Doty debt. doting daddy. You are the apple of his eye and he does want to protect you no matter what he does want to protect you and when interfering demons might come at you or are coming to the simplest easiest and very powerful way to put yourself into the protection of god is to praise god and worship god if you know how to pray in tongues do that because that's the holy spirit taking over praying what you don't even know you need to pray praising worshiping god drives demons away praising and worshiping god says to satan. I don't care what you're trying to do. It doesn't matter. Because i know that i am loved by god and protected by god. I am secure in the shelter of his wings and he will have the victory. Jesus already won the victory in the cross. I am following. Christ therefore that victory belongs to me to watch what you say out loud whether it's to a person or to god and spirits of the holy angels and demons who might be around if we say negative things like i'm afraid there's so much evil in the world right now. I'm really stressed out by it. When is going to wipe evil white. When it's going to enter into the political culture that is so evil and change it back to bring it up to where it needs to become where his holiness and god's own authority comes into the land or when is is my marriage or one of my prayers going to be answered for my children who have left. The faith am stressing out over it. It seems like god is taking forever to answer. These prayers may be is not going to answer it everything you say out loud. that's negative. My friend gives a monitoring spirit a window through your defenses into what you are vulnerable to. And that monitoring spirit will report it to satan who will send a specialist or two or three or more to further. Ruin things for you to keep you embedded in trapped in the fear and the worry and the anxiety. Because god said i will take care of you if i take care of the birds of the air and the flowers of the field..

"A supposedly a nail salon but it was a place for prostitutes. Were you know what I mean is everyone knew it. You know L.. There were just. That's where they were right. So if you had a small I was in Brooklyn. So there's one hundred of those places like the they just if you if you like told everyone about it they just move somewhere else like that's how it is in Brooklyn but if you look at a small town and you had a similar. Replace a SPA. That was really just brothel Is it a small town and so you so you decide. You know what we're GONNA do. This is a brothel and everybody knows it. So what we're GONNA do is we're gonNA GONNA sit outside this brothel we're gonNA protest it so that that all every we see exactly who's going in and we see exactly he's going out and all of a sudden everyone who's going in there they're going to the people we know there were business. Owners are going to be people that the PTA stuff like that and we're going to boycott all of their stuff people would stop going to that. Brothel would shutdown so loosed tactically. That would actually be something strategically. I guess I should say that. Might be a strategic boycott to get rid of a brothel in your small town but the thing is like in Brooklyn. That won't work because there's a million brothels in a small radius. Yeah and nobody cares. You know what I mean. So high so net flicks. Alex is like the Netflix. Thing is strikes me as trying to boycott you know brothels in Brooklyn versus like a small town like where I live. You know what I mean. Yeah for sure. And it's not GonNa work 'cause target Dick Sporting goods when they were saying they weren't going to sell guns anymore. That was trying to be boycott. They're doing great net flicks flakes isn't going to be hurt by this And that's interesting. What do you think about because we we as Christians kind of boycott quote Unquote Planned Parenthood? Right we do that same kind of thing where we're picketing sure. Is that even a strategy lawsuit riding so chat chat. Phone tastes makes a good point. He's he's making a lot of good points. You know every company that did something sinful. We'd have to farmers. That's true but I but but I can see in my example you you know. We wouldn't have to boycott everything but we'd have to boycott a grievous sort of thing that we actually do have a degree of control because we live in a small town and everyone that goes into that brought the we would. You'd see them and we would know what they're up to. We're going to boycott johns if you own a business in your John. We're going to boycott you so then it would run at. It would go out of business. I think that in general every every single company that did something sinful yet. He's a hundred percent right. I do though have respect for people that say this like well look. I don't I don't agree with this and I'm not giving them money to produce more of this so I'm just not going to give them a dollar. See that makes that makes sense to me. That makes sense to me but but I think like to try to organize. He's he's boy. It's just not my thing. It's just not my thing. I think I'm right there with you on. You do know it sounds like very I really. Don't I really don't I actually do think about these things. A lot of time for example for example office Disney came out my do have a subscription but it kind of makes me feel a little grinding my gears that this company owns. ABC that killed the epsteins gene story. It's like giving them cash. I'm obviously not saying that. I'm part of the cover up. I'm not saying that but it really grinding my gears that I'm giving them cash and this company is very immoral citing I struggle with this. This is something that I think about a lot. Yeah that's right. I mean it seems like those are going would be questioned that we're going to be continually. Look it's a great question. Entertainment is a non necessary. Why why not boycott something? We don't need just a thought. It's a good point This is the things I think about. Yeah just imagine what we could be doing instead of watching garbage star wars and that's not even even a dig at USD. That's a dig Chad over there. Because he is a star Wars Geek always tweets about it and somehow get in the threads and it drives me nuts on that note we should end but I just want to say this to end on this. I think a good gauge of how we're doing in the culture wars. I is to see this time of Year of how many people and businesses say merry Christmas again. Because as long as we're doing the hop happy holidays thing I think that is a good metrics for us to keep them a data guy again is a good annual metrics to check in on when companies start being able to say Mary Christmas again not having fear of backlash because of the people that have a lot of porn authority in the culture. Then I feel like we're going to be in a place where we can start leveraging urging things but if we can't even say merry Christmas without a thousand qualifiers that's just shows how weak of an influence Christianity has in our culture. Let me just just say this. I used to say happy holidays because I thought it was a nice thing to say and now I feel like I can't because now I'm supposed to say Merry Christmas. I stayed in work settings because I know everyone's scared to do it and you would not believe how many people were reply back like an email or on the. Oh Merry Christmas so you too. It's like you're setting them free in this flour is blossoming where they've been repressed in holding onto it and like I can't say it because I'll be called a discriminatory person against Kwanza Kwanza or some Seinfeld holiday. And then you say I always get like I always I always. I always get plus up a little little respect when someone tells me Merry Christmas. I'm like yeah good stuff man. We're on the same. I celebrate that Jesus to what Merry Christmas Christmas to a Muslim and then I was like. Oh yeah you're Muslim because it's okay great. I'm in I'm telling you there is only a small subset of people. Oh that'd get offended by Merry Christmas and it's usually not other religious people I guarantee that because they don't want to be censored as well like there's some some kind of mutual respect along religious people's people in New York San Francisco and Hollywood gala. Tizzy about it though take that is for what for what it's worth all right. Let's end it there. Thank you for joining Reform Gel. Call My name.

"Of clouds, not much light. For optical systems. So we actually worked with Airbus to put a synthetic aperture radar over that thing so that we could actually see through the clouds with no light, but sadly for us, but we call it was them packing up shop so they maybe they're moving it someplace else where where we have to find it all over again, maybe they're taking a break to go back to boost in Yar and and try to trouble shoot some of the problems. It's unclear, but you know the US intelligence community said that, you know all four of the tests were failures. The one that went, the furthest went into the drink. We were able to figure out the trajectory was going on, and we'd we'd read how far it went and like, yes, indeed, that would have been in the mouth of the straight. So I don't think that's a system that's ready for primetime which is kinda cool. Like watching them, like try to develop one of these systems. Yeah. I mean, that's a good way to frame it. It's like the open source tools allow to track progress. In ways that we used to have to read about leaks in the leaks, probably weren't always as forthcoming as we would have wanted them Danny well. And you know, one of the things I really like to do, and one of one of the reasons we have a firewall between us and the intelligence community is when NBC gets a story like that. And it's like, well, there are three ships involved like we can then go ahead on the open source side and look at the ASA tracking data and look at the satellite images. And confirm that like, yeah, that ships there. I mean, one of my favorite comparisons is we have a satellite image of one of the boats and then an AS ping and the AS ping is in the exact location of the boat. Eighteen minutes later. Oh, that's cool. Yes, you get this picture and then a few minutes later, the AIDS Ping's and it's like, yes, that's the boat. And I did an overlay and there's it's slightly misaligned, but like you can see that it's it's the boat in the same place in your the boats out there alone in the water. You know, it's the only boat there and it's a s paying, which I thought those pretty cool. So that was fun. You know? And it's nice to because grace Lou and an an Pellegrino you know, our our future, David, Melissa right are like rising stars did a ton of work on it and and did a bunch of the interviews for NPR. So I think it's kind of like where we're watching a whole new crew come along, which I'm excited about. That's cool. I mean, it's nice to cultivate new people to do really cool, interesting work particularly because we need more experts on this field. But when I think if I to to close this thing, I'll too. It's something that we've talked about before, but I think bears repeating is. It seems counter intuitive to self limit on the US as a means to place restraint on the Russians that are strategically advantageous. But I feel like it's it needs to be said, because as we grapple with what future of arms control should look like, it should be lower numbers. I mean, that's the both from humanitarian perspective and from a strategic perspective and the definition of strategic systems should no longer be based on the discussions. We had the nineteen eighties DOD mean, oh yeah. I mean, I, you know, I think. You know, I mean, we've had this conversation before, but when the US withdrew from the treaty and the Russians complained about it, the natural US impulse was to say like, we'll just build more missiles like you. This is no threat to you. You could just build more missiles, which is. So foolish. Because of course, the Russians wouldn't just build more missiles, like it bothered them more than that. They then undertook all these crazy systems. Right? And so the whole point is to get numbers down and to prevent all the lunatic ideas so that you've got a, you know what you really want to do is move to a situation where the two countries have mutually reinforcing minimum deterrence. You know that that that, that it is neither parties interest under any situation to initiate the use of nuclear weapons. And that requires eliminating all these crazy systems and bringing the numbers down. And at least to me the core piece of the only way that you can bring the numbers down and get rid of all the other crazy systems is to not have strategic defenses. Creating the requirement to overwhelm our or Pat shitty way of saying, right, if you if you have strategic defense as the other side has an incentive to overwhelm and then what you off on this path of high numbers and crazy types. That's right. And so this is this is a Russian position on at least it was on new start, at least future new start was linking offense and defense that has to be something has to be grappled with. Because as you just said, you know, without without a hard cap on missile defense, you incentivize the side to build more missiles. I mean, we talk about in the context of the Middle East, my bread butter all the time. You know, you put in more patriot put more Thad will built more missiles. You know, this is just the Russians build much nicer missiles than they read. Oldest there? Well, I mean, yeah. Well, stay tuned on that. We're, we're sitting on some rain developments that's. Yeah, that's kind of interesting. Yeah, that's a tease you know with that, you know, I think we're done here. Men. I'm done. All right, ITO in for. So if you are fan of the show, you probably already give to our patriot page, which is a patriot dot com slash AC w podcast where we are rolling out and have for the past. Mostly three weeks been doing shorter bite sized podcasts called brilliant pebbles, where we talk about relevant arms control and non-proliferation issues that catch our attention, but maybe don't merit a full thirty minute podcasts. On this latest episode. We talk about the latest, Ron missile tests and how it seems to be built around this idea that you have to beat theater or. You have to beat American is will defenses. So for those that don't give just hop on over the patriot dot com slash she'd be podcast and it's five dollars a month to get into our slack channel where we talk about a whole bunch of cool arms control things off your student.

"I, I would call it smart diplomacy. Yeah. Well, I mean, I mean, there are a couple of things and you know, this is just gets my general frustration with Washington, right? Kasai like everybody is enthralled. This stupid escalate to de-escalate idea. So it's like people are super worked up about Russia's nuclear forces, but they're like worked up about an imaginary doctrine that doesn't exist while you know like the Russian doctrine that does exist, which is awful, you know, is developing the science fiction systems that are designed to defeat missile defenses. You know, and, and which will. I mean the phrase that John Steinbrenner used to use that James Acton. His picked up, which I think is is really the right phrase. They deepen that sense of entanglement where you have all these complex systems and you don't really understand how they interact. And so you have this system that is, you know, just arguably not stable, and so you know, like my complaint. Complain about the new start treaties is not that it's, you know, it's not the complaint of the opponent, which is that it's too much. It's that it's too little. You know, it was watered down too much to get the votes of the opponents, which I, I guess you have to do, but you know, it's not a, it's not a failure as a treaty because treaties bad. It's it's a failure as a treaty because opponents made it impossible to negotiate a good one. Yeah, yes. And the now the political space, and our debate is even limiting something as simple as renewing it for five years to give space to have serious discussions and thoughts about what the future of arms control should look like and how we would want to both sort of imposed top-down bilateral stability on what is highly tense relationship with the Russians in to where we would like to spend money on our own nuclear forces. Because that's the thing that always gets me is we're not well postured to play the Russian game because we want to spend money elsewhere. And so if you don't capture these systems that they're building and they don't have any top down restraints on where they're allocating money for new nuclear delivery vehicles, and they're either operating Grey's own within the treaty or outside the treaty entirely. We want to spend that same amount of dollars on conventional forces missile defenses, something along those lines and not on sort of new nuclear systems of that make sense by nuclear systems for these crazy wacky things like a like, a nuclear power cruise missiles. The stealth drone torpedo that just wanders around the oceans deliver radio-activity in ports. Why me now I hate to like a broken record by. Actually, you know what? I don't mind sounding like. But I think this comes down to missile defense yet. You know, the United States has been unwilling to negotiate the Bush administration withdrew from the treaty, which I think was the impetus for all these crazy Russian programs are set, and and then the United States has been unwilling to discuss limitations on missile defenses. And I just think, you know, it's not that complicated of problem. If you were the Russians, the entire bilateral arms control endeavor is worthless to you. If it doesn't constrain missile defenses, if it doesn't defenses than you don't want any of it. And I, I get the sense that you know, because of our own political problems, we've never been able to understand that like, you can't refuse to count half the systems. The whole premise of arms control was one of acceptance of mutual vulnerability and. If you aren't willing to discuss missile defense because you can, you can eventually build your way out of that Bulger ability. You incentivize the other side in this case, being the Russians. To explore ways to build their way out of the problem which is to ensure that the American side is vulnerable to their attack. Now they may be paranoid about that. They may be entirely worst case scenario wing, you know, for their own internal defense reasons. But there is an underlying logic that pushes his forward. And if you're unwilling as we move forward in this arms control process to grapple with that basic reality and not bring in missile defense, you're probably not going to get very far and you're going to be self limiting. Some of the really frustrating because I actually remember there was a an article written by someone I like, so I'll not allow only sub tweet it looking at the anniversary of the withdrawal from the ABM treaty. And you know the conversation was sort of like, well, you know, all the good stuff that the proponents of withdrawing hap- suggested would happen in terms of getting better defenses. Those didn't come true, but neither did the direst predictions of the people who said, withdrawing would undermine the arms control regime. And it was like, you know, I think it was like on the ten year anniversary or something. And so it was, you know, the implication was ten years was long enough to see the impacts of these things, and it really wasn't until this year that we, I really started to see how fundamental you know, the reorientation of strategic systems really has been. So it's. Just like we, I think we ended up dismissing the idea. You know, like people used to say the treaty was cornerstone of strategic stability and the Bush administration withdrew. We waited ten years and really all the was guys in fallen. So that must not have been true at, it's like, no, that was true. It's just the Bill hasn't come to yet. And like now now it's here. Yes. So let's talk about that Bill coming do. 'cause I think it's again, it's it's linked to the congressional testimony about the the inability to articulate a coherent future oriented agenda for arms control. The concurrent problems with arms control van that you mentioned the ABM. We have the Russian violation of the IMF, and then we have the press conference. You know, where Putin unveiled all these systems and you guys over at at your shop have been tracking the nuclear power cruise missile in had some cool work over on the NPR National Public Radio. Yeah, we'll. I mean, the thing that I wanna talk about a kind of want to end with the the open source stuff because I'm pretty an pretty excited about that. And that's like that's gonna like that's going to be my happy ending. That'll cheer us up, but you know, it does seem like in Helsinki there was some kind of discussion about the future of new start. I, I actually kind of think that you know in the same way that only Donald Trump is dumb enough to give Kim Jong gonna summit Don only Donald Trump may be dumb enough in popular enough among Republicans to like cut a deal on missile defense, you know? And I don't understand like like of all the things that like of all the ways in which Putin and make Trump do things like, why did he make him do this? Not least because I just wanna hear Republicans defend cutting silt and says. But you know, my my sense, what I understand is that while while Trump is open to extending new start, he wants to find some non Obama way of doing it.
