A highlight from Introducing: History Daily
"Hello, my friends. This is Professor Greg Jackson, and today I am most pleased to bring you a little off -week treat. The tale of the Zimmerman Telegram, as told by the prolific history podcaster, the not one and only, and definitely not a U .S. Senator, Lindsey Graham. As many of you know, Lindsey is a dear friend of mine. He is the host of several podcasts, such as American History Tellers, American Scandal, American Elections Wicked Game, and the particularly brilliant historical audio drama, 1865. His company, Airship, does HTDS's sound design, and we have had many a long conversation about history, podcasting, presentation, you name it. All of which I credit to my growth as a podcaster. Well, all that to say, Lindsey also hosts History Daily, a podcast that delivers a relatively short episode every weekday, whose topic is always a meaningful historical event that happened on that precise date, be it a few years or a century ago. It's a wonderful way to make what might feel like just another ordinary day come to life as you learn about significant events on their anniversaries. For today's taste of History Daily, though, I'm letting the actual date slide to bring you a World War I related topic, the Zimmerman Telegram. I hardly have to tell you about its significance since we learned about it here on HTDS, but I hope you enjoyed Lindsey's telling in an episode dedicated solely to that event. And if you do enjoy it, be sure to check out History Daily wherever you get your podcasts. Here we go. It's a foggy early morning on August 26, 1914, just one month into World War I. A German cruiser cuts through the Baltic Sea, laying mines near the entry to the Gulf of Finland. The SMS Magdeburg works under the cover of darkness, steaming along until it comes to a shuddering halt. On deck, the captain curses as the ship runs aground in the shallow waters off a nearby island. The captain directs his crew to start throwing any unnecessary equipment overboard. He's confident that if they can lighten the cruiser's load, it'll pull off the shoals. But despite their best efforts, the ship doesn't come free. So left with no choice, the captain orders his crew to start lowering the ship's dinghings. As the men prepare for evacuation, the captain's mind goes immediately to the most precious cargo on board, a set of three code books used to write and decipher German communications. Quickly, the captain orders a signalman to fetch the books. But as he awaits the crew members' return, he gazes out at the horizon. A break develops in the fog, and the captain sees two unfamiliar vessels bearing down on his boat. As they draw closer, he recognizes them as Russian ships. As the enemy ships open fire on the Magdeburg, the captain rushes to locate the signalman he sent to retrieve the code books. When he finds them, the captain orders the signalman to take the books, row out to deep water, and throw them overboard. The captain looks on as the signalman boards a dinghy with code books in hand and is slowly lowered down. But before the boat can reach the water below, incoming Russian shells explode all around it. The captain looks on in horror as the signalman is struck and tumbles into the sea, the code books still clutched to his chest. After the brief encounter in the Baltic Sea, the Russians rescue drowning German sailors and the bodies of those that cannot be saved. And when they drag aboard one body, still clasped within the dead man's arms, will be the invaluable keys to Germany's communications system. The Russians keep two of the three German code books they recovered from the SMS Magdeburg, but they pass the other onto the British government. They use it to establish a top -secret code -breaking operation. And armed with the code book, and others like it they will later seize, British intelligence is able to decipher most German messages. But no intercepted note will be as consequential as the Zimmerman Telegram, an inflammatory document that will persuade the United States to declare war on Germany after its contents are revealed to the U .S. government on February 24, 1917.

Fresh update on "baltic" discussed on News and Perspective with Tom Hutyler
"Seattle at 215. Newsradio 1000 FM 97 .7 your information sponsored station by Muckleshoot Casino. Our editor Bill O 'Neill as we take a look at top these headlines I'm Rick Van Sise in Seattle the number of striking workers in the US is growing 75 thousand Kaiser Permanente workers walked off the job today in multiple states in what is gearing up to be the largest health care strike in US history the King County Council releasing a statement condemning hate speech after online public comments disrupted a committee meeting with racist and anti -semitic slurs the council says it supports the public's first amendment rights but does not tolerate hate at the start of the war in Ukraine support from the public and politicians for the Ukrainian effort was widespread and bipartisan now more than a year and a half after the Russian invasion support is slipping. Scott Clement is the polling director for the Washington Post and spoke with Northwest News Radio's Van Taylor Zeiss the numbers that you're examining they came from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs I wonder as a polling expert what struck you first when you started to look at the numbers? Well the Chicago Council has been measuring opinions on these really since the weeks after the invasion started they have a really nice trend line in what people have thought over the course of the war. One thing that really struck me is how the war has gone on as you described opinions on the issue have gotten more partisan and Republicans have generally become supportive less of sending additional arms and military supplies to the Ukrainian government. They've also changed their overall perspective on the war. And the poll comes out at a really consequential time for Ukraine. Military aid for their efforts is at the heart of of the some budget negotiations there in Washington DC. How do these Chicago council numbers of the public compared to what we're hearing from members of Congress? Sure. So Democrats have generally been heavily supportive and even most Republican lawmakers in Washington have been supportive, continuing to support Ukraine. Quibbles about the amount, you know, of funding and where it should go and also what type of scrutiny. But generally the idea of continuing to support Ukraine has a lot of support among leaders. Where there has been though is some of those arguments against helping Ukraine have gained traction on the right and including among independents. And so it's anywhere near a 50 -50 issue right now in terms of support for providing additional arms. But you see Republicans, for instance, basically 50 -50 on whether the US should provide more military support. Now what struck me most when I looked at this was the question about support for NATO. It's still quite strong, but Americans don't seem to be as supportive of all NATO nations equally. That's right, this is a new question we asked. So overall, you know, the long -term question, 77 % of people say the US should maintain or increase its commitment to NATO, very similar to previous years, down from a peak in 2022, but asked whether the US should send troops if Russia invaded Germany, 64 % say that. But if Russia were to invade a NATO ally like Latvia or Lithuania, then 57 % say that. And it's a pretty big partisan difference on that, so clear majority, similar percentages of Democrats say the US should defend allies, Germany as well as the Baltic nations. For Republicans, 64 % say the US should send troops to defend Germany if they're attacked, compared with 48 % for the Baltic nations. Really interesting thing you could tease maybe out with some social science questions there about your feelings about Germany compared to Lithuania, Latvia.

A highlight from Charles Duke
"Folks, welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit LegacyPMInvestments .com. That's LegacyPMInvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his seed because The Blob was supposed to eat him. But he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Mataxas! I've already told you really everything I think you need to know about the man who lets me call him Charlie. A warm Socrates in the City round of applause for Brigadier General Charles Moss Duke. You go in the far chair right there. All right, I better get this out of the way right off the bat. Did you really walk on the moon? Be honest, because you're among friends. If it didn't happen, there's forgiveness. But is that true? It's true. About 20 years ago, the moon landings were a big hoax. And I was interviewed by somebody on NBC. And and I said, as Katie Couric, and I said, Katie, if we faked it, why did we fake it nine times? You're going to fake some, do it once and shut up. Right. But we went to the moon nine times, had six landings on the moon, and I was the fifth landing of the six. So I don't know, though, if you really want to be clever, you could you could do it several times just to throw people off, you know. Charlie, it's I'm not kidding. I go places and I talk and every now and again, I will bump into someone who is a flat earther. And I realize this because I would use it as the ultimate example of what we all dismiss. We don't take seriously. And there are people like they're out there. So have you ever encountered one who actually thought that you were that who confronted you personally and said this never happened? My first encounter with this fellow, I don't remember his name now, but he called me in the middle of the night and said, how do you get your number, Charlie? We're in the phone book, actually. All right. That's that's on you. That's on you. Not many, not many phone books left, but back 20 years ago. And that's called me. He says, my name's so -and -so. And he says, do you are you Charlie Duke? I said, I'm Charlie Duke. He said, Well, you claim you walked on the moon. And I said, Yeah, I walked on the moon. He said, Well, I have irrefutable proof that you did not land on the moon. And I said, Well, why don't you send me some of this irrefutable proof? So I hung up and he sent me a grainy video that he'd done. And it was a fake video, actually. And so anyway, I saw him, a friend of his showed up at a meeting in Japan. Yeah, I don't believe Japan exists. And this guy and this guy approached Buzz Aldrin in his office in L .A. one time. And he said he had a Bible in his hand. He says, swear on this Bible that you walked on the moon. And Buzz said, Get out of here. And the guy kept the guy kept bugging him. And finally, Buzz just popped him right right in the middle of the nose and knocked him down. And the so guy sued Buzz. But the lawyer says, You deserve it. I mean, the judge said, You deserve it. Get out of here. Wow. We need more judges like that. Yeah. So anyway, I had a similar experience in Japan with this guy. But the evidence is irrefutable that we landed on the moon that we did. You don't need to convince this group. We we believe you. It's kind of why we're here. Well, I mean, we need an argument. The rocks are six hundred pounds of moon rocks are totally different than earth rocks. The photographs that we took, you cannot fake photograph. Back in those days, you didn't have the technology to fake photographs like you could do it today. And so the photographs all real. The rocks are real. The experiments we brought back. We left the laser reflector up there. And it's all all that's being transmitted. I mean, you can so we can hit it with a laser from here. Yeah. And so there's evidence is overwhelming that the moon rocks are real and that we did land on the moon six successful times. I want to ask you a few geological questions, which is not typical of me, but I want to get into that. But first, I want to I just want to go backwards. You know, I was kidding around about the idea that once you've walked on the moon, you know, you know, people don't really care where you went to college or whatever you're you know, you've been published in the Atlantic Monthly or whatever it is, because, you know. But how did your path go? I alluded to the fact that you started in the Naval Academy, so you didn't even have it as a gleam in your eye to to be an astronaut, because in those days, in those days, there wasn't a space program. We were trying to launch rockets, but not nobody was talking about people. And so I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1957, and there wasn't an Air Force Academy in 1957. There wasn't. They started it in 1955, but the first class wasn't going to graduate until 1959. So up until that point, they would allow West Pointers and midshipmen to volunteer for the Air Force. It was up to 25 % of the class. And so I fell in love with airplanes and at the Naval Academy. And so the decision was Naval Aviation or Air Force. And I was leading Air Force, but I really didn't know. So I took my physical my senior year, first class year, we called it. And I said, and the doctor after I got finished, he said, Well, Mitch and the Duke, you don't qualify for naval aviation, but the Air Force will take you. So that's true. That's true. True story. And so I ended up in the Air Force. And the whole story was the doctor says, we have found a stigmatism in your right eye and you don't qualify for naval aviation, but the Air Force will take you. So so anyway, they're desperate. They're just getting started. They'll take anybody. Yeah. Did you I mean, I have to ask you this question as a kid. Did you ever have any inkling or premonition that you would do something like go to the moon or was it simply completely, you know, because I grew up at a time when I was a kid, people started going to the moon. So I can't think of a time when nobody was doing that. Well, I I'm 86 and I can remember Pearl Harbor. I was six years old, my twin brother. And it was a very I can remember it vividly. And so my dad went off to the Navy and at 35 years old. And we ended up in South Carolina with my grandmother and my mom. And and my heroes were that greatest generation is broke. And so I wanted to serve my country and I chose to go to the Naval Academy because and because my dad had been a Navy. And I was as a kid, I can remember making these baltic wood planes and throwing them off the front top story of my grandmother's house. And we could get some matches and we'd like to tail and we'd throw this thing off. So it was like the zeros crashing, you know, and so I can remember those kind of things. But certainly it wasn't any. I fell in love with airplanes, I guess, in those days. And I had this adventure spirit, I call it. And there's a book by Dr. Seuss called Beyond Z. And it talks about this kid who learns the alphabet on beyond zebra. Yeah, beyond zebra on beyond zebra. Yeah. And his name was Conrad Cornelius O 'Donnell O 'Dell, a very young man who's learning to spell the A is for ape and the B is for bear. C to C through disease is for zebra. I know them all well, says Conrad Cornelius O 'Donnell O 'Dell, but he almost fell flat on his face on the floor when I picked up the chalk and drew one letter more for the things that I see and the things that I do. I could never spell if I stopped with the Z.
China's "Century of Western Humiliation" With Jack Posobiec
"You and I have both been warning, hey, there's going to be a new superpower alliance happening and the American regime is cheerleading for it and is actually helping it happen. Chilling last couple of days in Moscow as Xi Jinping Winnie the pooh goes to Moscow to meet with Vladimir Putin and they say, quote, there are changes that have not happened in a hundred years that are happening when we meet take care of yourself dear friend. Play cut 73 and then Jack, I want you to make sense of this for me. What does this mean? I'm not even sure, play cut 73. Now there are changes that haven't happened in 100 years. When we are together, we drive these changes. I agree. Take care of yourself to your friend. Please. Jack, what does this mean? So to understand China, you have to understand that the way they teach history, they refer to something as the hundred years of humiliation of the century of humiliation. So the century humiliation goes from the opium war of about 1859 all the way up to 1949, which is of course the founding of the People's Republic of China. So they could refer to that as the century of humiliation, meaning humiliation by what, humiliation at the hands of the west. So the flip side of that for him to say, this is a change we haven't seen in a hundred years. What he's actually referring to is their new plan for 2049. That's their target date on forward where it's the century of western humiliation that he wants the west to be brought down low. And what does the United States done throughout all of this? They've driven Russia. The biggest wildcard in all of this, Russia, which had been trying to extend economic ties to Europe. Of course, we've now see where those economic ties are. They've been blown up. Most likely by the Biden administration and their allies at the bottom of the Baltic Sea and driven Russia in to the arms of China. This is the most historic meeting that we've seen in terms of the global geopolitical balance of power since Nixon going to China,
Ukrainian government denies involvement in Nord Stream pipelines sabotage - CNN
"Ukraine's ambassador to the UK has dismissed media reports that a pro Ukrainian group was involved in blowing up the Nord stream gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea last year. Vladimir tells Sky News, his government had nothing to do with the sabotage of the Nord stream gas pipeline. This is mature to discuss things like what would happen if we believe that NASA is there is no now our involvement there. I'm not just talking about technically how difficult it is to do it. I'm just telling that totally against our own interests. Meanwhile, defense minister Alexei

"Yes, I think that results would be different because the prime minister Kyoto from reform party has been very successful in Europe and in the whole western world telling what are the views of Eastern Europe, so the basic message has been that Baltic states and Poland has all the way for tens of the years telling the Russia could not be trusted. They could not be trusted. But nobody actually wanted to listen because there were different kinds of interests to hold and now we have most of the European leaders starting from Chancellor Schultz to late and from European Commission saying that, yes, Borg will write Russia was not to be trusted. And as prime minister has gotten huge amount of coverage in western press in big newspapers, TV. So she's very clear leader on security issues in Estonia and as said that this security is existential to Estonia, it means that she and her reform party are very, very popular. Absolutely. And just finally, pray, how do you think this election result will shape Estonia in the next few years? What do you expect from the future? I think that the estonians can be worried satisfied with that Estonia will go on on the course. We have now. We are focusing on our security, which is the most important thing and that we go on further on liberal way of building our state. The editor in chief of Estonia's post newspaper there.

How the Biden Admin. Secretly Destroyed the Nord Stream Pipeline
"Almost exactly a year ago. Biden gave a statement, he was meeting in The White House with German Chancellor Olaf scholz. And at the press briefing Biden said this quote. If Russia invades, there will no longer be a Nord stream two. We will bring an end to it. So here's Biden almost startlingly advertising what the United States would subsequently do. And simo hirsch's point in his article is that this is what they actually started doing. They started planning how to bring about an end to the Nord stream pipeline. They decided to use the U.S. Navy. The U.S. Navy's diving and salvage center, which happens to be headquartered in Florida, has skill teams of deep sea divers. And they decided, let's use a bunch of these divers. We will send them off to the Baltic. These are experts that planting explosives and they're going to blow up the pipeline. Now it's going to be done in complete secrecy. In fact, it's going to be done as an intelligence operation so that we don't really have to inform the Congress. We're not going to tell anyone about it. In fact, we're going to publicly pretend that we didn't do it. We meaning the United States didn't do it. And we're going to count on the media to cover our tracks. In fact, there's an interesting as far as I know, no major media has deployed investigative reporting to find out what really happened to the Nord stream pipeline. There was just some job Putin probably did it, and then the matter was completely dropped. In fact, only the Russians have been talking about the fact that the United States needs to provide some answers for its role in blowing up the Nord stream pipeline.
The Idea of Sending Western Weaponry to Ukraine Is Insane
"Comes to supplying weapons, this is really, this is hugely important. Right at the beginning of the war, I wrote an analytic piece, I think it was for breitbart. And what I said back then, ten months ago, hasn't changed today. The idea that we should be sending that anybody, the Germans, the Brits, or the Americans, should be sending western weaponry to Ukraine and cash is insane. This is a former republic of the Soviet Union. What they need is Soviet era equipment, which is standing in stockpiles in former Warsaw Pact nations like Hungary, like Poland, the Baltic states and Romania. They need to this is the Polish deal. Remember the Polish deal, Poland said, we've got MiG 29s while given to Ukraine if America backfills. Biden says yes and then 48 hours later because he's a feckless senile old get changes his mind. So they should be supplied equipment they know how to use, not Abrams tanks that nobody in Ukraine has ever driven that have 19 different types of oil to run them and that need a resupply chain from America. No, give them Soviet air equipment that we don't want anyway. Give them ammunition and lastly, just because we have a dominance in ISR in intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance when it comes to military satellites give them the target packets to hit the Russians that are on their territory where it hurts.
Darren Beattie: How the U.S. Planned for Nord Stream Pipeline Bombing
"Joe Biden kind of intimated as much He said you know one way or another Nord stream two is not going to not going to be around anymore if Putin continues this Victoria Nuland whom I mentioned there is a key figure in all kinds of operations in Europe She was involved in the Euro maidan color revolution And so forth She intimated as much as well And then sure enough this thing blows up And up until then I think most thinking people understand it's the U.S. either directly or indirectly But then enter Seymour hersh this Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has a history of reporting stories that are embarrassing to the U.S. government Going all the way back to Vietnam And he publishes this highly detailed story that purports to give a direct operational account of what actually happened And it's more explosive than even I would have imagined because it says it wasn't just it wasn't just proxy This was the U.S. Navy doing it And furthermore the planning began before the invasion even took place And that U.S. Navy divers were recruited to plant explosives on the pipeline under the guise of some routine military exercise near the Baltics And that this comes directly goes all the way to the top to the Biden White House to blinken to Jake Sullivan and to Victoria Nuland and they were very much aware of the sensitivities at issue because this is very clearly an act of war an attack on another country's piece of infrastructure like that

"Troops from along the Baltic states and if they are so frightened that the Baltic states of NATO is going to invade through the Baltic states that must have been a hard decision although I suspect it was not as hard as they would like us to believe so but you know they are taking down their defenses in some places and it makes a difference to their security situation and just having the world know that their whole military doesn't work as well as we thought it did is a security liability. Right. Obviously, I mean, there's a lot of there's a lot of work. There's a lot of reports out right now. I have a lot of friends who do work on Central Asia. And the Russian led security order in Central Asia is falling apart, right? I mean, there's no other word for it. It's just it is collapsing, right? Because all these countries are looking and saying like, look, Moscow can't do anything. Right. I mean, maybe, you know, maybe if it weren't fighting the war in Ukraine, it could, but right now Moscow's capabilities to manage the region are zero, right? And they're settling scores. They're stepping out in ways that they wouldn't necessarily have done. There's an amber alert on my phone. That they wouldn't necessarily have done. But CSTO is whatever he knew it was kind of a joke, but it's so I'm going to make a wildly irresponsible prediction. And I'll see if you want to make one after mine. But this is sort of what I think will be the next big sort of crisis situation in this war. I think that the Ukrainians are going to close off the carousel pocket. The Ukrainians have largely avoided the Russians have been good about retreating and the Ukrainians have been good about allowing them to retreat because I think that both sides are fully cognizant of the political difficulties that are major pocket poses.

"No originality in there whatsoever. I mean, in 1944, they did the same thing in the Baltic states that he had elections air quotes and put in reliable folks who said, wow, yes, we really want to be part of the Soviet Union. And it seems like though even for the pro Russian people in Ukraine, there's just not the enthusiasm that there was. Back in 1944, they had some enthusiastic communist parties in the Baltic states that would, you know, put up the front and take the high positions, but the whole thing seems to be for nothing. The big question that I have is why they want the separation, nuclear power plant. Obviously, it's useful to control power plants to control a country. And that is a big power plant. It has 6 reactors. I think it's the biggest one in Europe. And so that's good. They control it. They are shooting mortars out of the area and the Ukrainians are not shooting back for good reason. So they've got that, but again, it's a relatively limited area. And how much value is it to

"Is done, but certainly all of the NATO allies will have to contribute and it won't be part of this 2% or will be on top of the 2%. If president Putin has at least one of his goals in this invasion, essentially undermining NATO, suspecting that maybe it wasn't as strong as it once was. It seems like he's failed in that goal. Is NATO back? He's massively miscalculated, David. I mean, he thought that NATO would perhaps crumble under the threat, the onslaught of Russia invading Ukraine and of course he thought he would take over the government in Ukraine. And that, in fact, what has happened is that Ukraine now has significantly expanded its territory. The Finns and the Russians, so the Finnish territory, there's about 830 miles of border now between NATO and Russia because Finland will join NATO as a result of this summit as well. And Sweden will become a member as well. And Sweden controls access to the Baltic Sea, which is a sea that several of the NATO current NATO members are sit on. So strategically, Sweden also is a real advantage to NATO as a future soon to be member. Well, I also wonder if the way they got to having Sweden in Finland come in actually also shored up NATO because it went through turkey and turkey is not always been an easy ally in NATO and I wonder if those bonds might not even have been strengthened. Well, turkey is a very interesting because we've seen president Erdoğan do this in the past on other issues where he says I'm not going to agree to the consensus, which is required, which means all the members of NATO agree when they take on a new neighbor or when they take on significant actions military actions. And turkey's done this before where they've said, we disagree. And it always means that president Erdoğan is looking for some kind of concession. And usually it's aimed at his domestic audience. And that was entirely the case this time as well. So it was sort of predictable that turkey would cave. But it is interesting because when push comes to shove, turkey always picks NATO over Russia. People get a little nervous when turkey buys Russian military equipment or when turkey talks to Russia about Middle Eastern security issues. We start to

"Now What is the strategic difference that makes for NATO I mean what does Sweden and Finland bring to this Obviously psychologically it's very nice to have them aboard But what do they bring in terms of weapons armaments armies navies Yes there's been a lot of focus on the fact that Finland brings along 9 quarter by Russia but unless focus on the fact that it brings phenomenal expertise in defending that land border We should remember that now with European security changing territorial integrity territorial defense has become so important again And for years countries have focused on expeditionary warfare In other words going to Afghanistan going to Iraq Now they have to relearn defending that territory And that's expertise where Finland is second to none It also brings a good air force Sweden brings a fantastic air force a fitment by the way brings an F-35 equipped air force to be It has just signed an F-35 deal Sweden also brings fantastic a fantastic navy It's a very large navy because this wind has a very long coastline and maybe includes surface ships but also fantastic submarine capabilities And we should remember that it's really important in the Baltic Sea where NATO really doesn't have a large navy because Germany is a Baltic Sea country with a small coastline in the Baltic sea and other than that the naval presence isn't very big So Sweden really is the giant as it were in the Baltic Sea Sweden also brings something that prime minister Anderson highlighted in her press conference today Excellent mountain fighting capabilities and that's will be of benefit to NATO as well And I think most of all the particular Finn brings huge commitment to societal commitment to keeping the country safe So all that sounds pretty formidable and it certainly helps explain I suspect why Vladimir Putin the president of Russia is none too keen about this Is there anything he can do He certainly doesn't want this to happen No he doesn't But he has known for years that Sweden have been and have been cooperating very closely with NATO lots of newspapers and media called Sweden Finland neutral They haven't been neutral for many years because they've had this close cooperation of the nature Of course there are members of the European Union which also has a defense capability So this is no secret to Russia And had their accession or their application happen at any other point Russia would have retaliated I think in a pretty painful way But now it's so busy in Ukraine that there isn't really very much you can do with military means It's likely to engage in aggression the gray zone So below the threshold of war disinformation campaigns cyberattacks and so forth But by the end of the day this is the best possible moment for these two campers to join NATO because Russia is so busy elsewhere in very much apart from issuing threats and sighing and complaining Elizabeth this has been terribly helpful Thank you very much for your time It's all Elizabeth bra she's senior fellow at the American enterprise institute Coming up here the number.

Joe Biden Befuddled by Putin's Actions in Ukraine
"Joe Biden recently expressed consternation and surprise at what Russia has done in the Ukraine. In fact, listening to him, it kind of reminded me a little bit of Jimmy Carter's reaction when the Soviets first invaded Afghanistan in 1979. Carter was like, I didn't see that one coming, and you got very much the same thing from Biden's. I'm going to quote Biden here, quote, how did we get to the place where you know Putin decides who's going to just invade Russia? Now he actually means Ukraine, so let's correct him there. And he goes nothing like this has happened since World War II. So Biden is really befuddled about why Putin would do this. And it doesn't seem to occur to him that the reason might have something to do with the befuddled one himself. In other words, when you have a weak and senile bumbler, The White House, Putin goes, now's the time. Time for me to move. Trump's out of there. We got Biden, Biden's not really known. It doesn't even know what's going on in his own country, let alone far away near the Baltic Sea. So that I think is the at least partial answer to Biden's question.
There's a Qualitative Difference Between America and Russia
"I keep hearing this. Well, the NATO was going to put missiles on Ukrainian soil and we wouldn't let the Russians or anybody else the Chinese put missiles in Mexico, would we? Hang on a second, that's the moral equivalency argument of the Cold War that all states are the same. There is a qualitative difference between America and Russia. There is a qualitative difference between Ukraine and Russia. Putin has peddled a lie for 23 years that NATO is on the march. We are being encircled by those dastardly Democrats. Those democracies with their free markets. We aren't an empire. There's no emperor of NATO, who uses force to expand up to the borders of Russia, NATO is a club. You can apply to join, and if you meet the requirements of collective defense, you can join. Nobody, when we opened up NATO to Hungary, where I served for 15 years, when we opened it up to the Baltic states who had been swallowed up by Stalin. We didn't invade the Baltic states when gobbled them up. They wanted to join NATO. They applied, they had to meet criteria. And then when they met them, they were let in. There's no moral equivalent. It's like saying the Warsaw Pact was the same as NATO. No, the Warsaw Pact was Russia, the Soviet Union controlling every other slave nation in the pact.

"We're back with breaking news Coke zero sugar might be the best Coke ever That's right Jim Make sure Yes this tastes like the best Coke ever to me On the air I need to try it first With zero sugar and refreshingly delicious is Coca-Cola zero sugar the best Coke ever Pick up a half liter 6 pack from your local giant today We can humanitarian support to Ukraine It's worth noting that this Ukraine is the largest country within Europe and there's soon going to be huge refugee and displaced persons crisis moving west throughout Europe And the UK government will very quickly need to decide on whether we continue to be arm to arm and train Ukrainians as we have been doing if Russia moves to occupation of the country But it's also really important to note that the context of this type do not stay localized and this is a conflict that has the potential to escalate within Europe So I think the UK will need to further reinforce the leader enhanced forward presence we've already seen commitment to Estonia and Poland over the last couple of days And also worth noting that we have sent the UK carrier strike group upon the NATO exercise up to the high north So this is not just localized on Ukraine this has wider European implications Yes absolutely So how much of a threat then is this situation in Ukraine to the security of Europe as you say It will put into play other countries that are even closer to the heart of Europe Yes I mean let's be very clear about this This is probably going to be the largest conflict in Europe since the Second World War and we'll have global repercussions specifically for European security I mean there are security interests with Russia in the Arctic and the high north the Baltics Now the Black Sea the Mediterranean Africa as well And relations with Russia are now by far the worse since they have been since the end of the Cold War There's almost no route immediately to that becoming any better I think the days of collective security in Europe at the moment are to win the linger I don't think they're dead but at the moment we seem to be going back to more balance of power politics and I think it's very specific to NATO that since 2014 we've relied on fairly light defensive postures in the Baltics I think that will change now not going back to the levels of the Cold War but traditional defense is coming back in a big way Yeah I mean if you look at the size of the Russian economy absolutely dwarfed You know 1.4 trillion in dollar terms of total GDP 1.4 That's versus the U.S. more than 20 trillion China at close to 15 trillion So this is a small economy but hands down It spends more than double in terms of military spending than China 4.3% of its GDP in Russia goes to military spending The U.S. may be at 3.7 but Germany's at 1.4% So what does all of this mean at Arnold when it comes to the future of NATO Does this finally move the needle in terms of more spending by European countries Or even to a European force to a European army that's been discussed for years but has never happened To take the last point first I don't think this necessarily means the European army collective defense and deterrence is very much NATO's core task But this is really a significant crisis for NATO this far it is played a very strong hand and it's worth noting that this comes at the end of Afghanistan It was an out of area operation for NATO which was a failure This is an opportunity for NATO to go back to its core tasks of collective defense and deterrence On the spending issue the problem is that 2% is relatively low not a lot of European nations make that commitment It's worth noting in 2014 at the whales summit in the UK The donations re committed to the 2% but for example in Germany that you mentioned they said that they would be there by 2024 They're now assessing 2031 Regardless of how this military spending is used and what flag is on the arm of the soldiers that go to war and it doesn't really matter the key point is that European nations need to spend more on defense The U.S. security guarantee you might not be there for a long time The U.S. has security concerns in the indo Pacific and Europe does need a plan B in that it means starting now Yeah so where does Europe really draw the line in terms of military response versus sanctions Very interesting to talk to you Ed Thank you so

Nato intercepts Russian planes '10 times in a day'
"Apparently probing European defenses, NATO jets were scrambled 10 times all over Europe on Monday to intercept Russian planes as they flew over the North Sea, the Baltic and the Black Sea. Alliance called it an unusual peak of Russian flight activity. The Russian plane stayed in international airspace, but NATO points out that the flights composed potential safety risks. That's because the Russian crews don't put on their transponders, file flight plans or talk to civilian air traffic controllers. Martinez. ABC NEWS Washington

This was not my first protest in moscow in quite a few the past few years are cody. Trotsky is russia editor in moscow. I would say that. Fear was one of caution pretty much on both sides the fact that people have braved the streets brave. The police cordons came out. Despite enormous intimidation campaign was waged. By the kremlin in the preceding days is in itself extraordinary russia's much more repressive state today than it was even a few years ago. The people who were out in the street was certainly not radicals as abba in moscow protests. That was scary. Moments police charging but on the whole the police behavior some restraint and its actions were nowhere on the level of violence and brutality which we saw a few months ago in neighboring belarus. There was no special measures with no tear. Gas rubber bullets so it was definitely tense. But i didn't see many of the accesses and when we spoke to protesters what were they saying. Why were they out. The protesters came from the social strata and had different possibly political beliefs. What brought them out onto the street. Were few things. There was a sense of injustice over the arrest of alexei novel name who was arrested at possible control on the rival at airport and is now facing three and a half years in jail for breaking parole rules on a previous suspended sentence and the reason he broke his parole rules. That didn't comfortable to the police was just happened to be recovering from novichok nerve agent poisoning in germany. So people obvious that as an injustice the other big catalyst for the protest was the release of alexander violence extraordinary two hour long documentary film about allegedly putin secret palace in the black sea coast which was bill deem volumes cronies at a cost of one point three billion dollars. It's your absolutely archetypal. James bond villains had with all the trimmings and the golden toilet brushes that made a big impact. It clocked over eighty million views on youtube. An underlying over that was just general sense of tidiness of putin's regime tiredness of course lack of economic growth it was a very broad protests. And that's what made say interesting. You know lots of people came out for the first time. And so do you think that. That broad dissent a across demographics. On a lot of first-time protesters will will make any difference to to. What the kremlin actually does. It's not going to make any difference. In the short term the kremlin has already said. It's not going to pay attention. Admittedly fiscal putin spokesman said well. We think it was a very small protests. Many more people vote for vladimir putin. That was ironic. Given that alexander was barred from the election in which people voted for vladimir putin the reason the numbers were kept down walls because of enormous intimidation campaigns parents schoolchildren were told to keep their kids at home. Students were threatened with expulsion employs. The employees they'd risk dismissal if they would join the protest et cetera et cetera. The kremlin is not going to release alexei navalny overnight but only himself and he's associates of said. This is not an immediate process. This is a long haul to re coined the famous phrase by me. He'll gorbachev in the late eighties. The process started so. Do you think that the detention of of mr navalny and the release of this video and all of those us have really changed things. Is this a turning point. They do and this change effects vladimir putin's legitimacy which is already being Waning and we. We've seen that in in the raising figures. But this film and alexander. Violence return to russia is a massive blow to putin's legitimacy and to the attitudes and perceptions of putin in the broad russian public as one commentator set to me you know two years ago people had to explain why they oppose putin today they have to justify why they support him. And how has the international community responded to to this protest mood and these protests i think so far west leaders have been watching very carefully. What's happening in russia. has been rhetorical outrage. At least both from angela merkel Sees this as a slap in her face because nobody was in germany under her protection also been marketed. Different reaction from washington. I think we will see a very different response. From biden's administration compared to trump's acquiescence to putin's action has been called for tax sanctions including from poland. A you member states the foreign ministers to discuss next steps. But i think there is also worry amongst western countries and particularly among russian neighbors and countries like the baltic states and poland that events in russia will have repercussions outside russian borders and this north unfounded fears because in two thousand fourteen two years after big protests swept russia features berg and other big cities the kremlin annexed crimea and stuff the war in ukraine in order to change the narrative and dominate political agenda so lot of russia neighbors worried that repression at home and protests against the kremlin will lead to aggression.

Germany approves resuming Russia gas pipeline work
"Government authorities, clearing the way for an immediate resumption of work on an undersea pipeline transporting natural gas from Russia decision convey appealed, meaning there could be another hole to construction on the Nord stream to project The pipeline is drawn major criticism from the United States, some other European countries and environmental groups. The U. S government has argued that the Baltic Sea pipeline would make Europe more dependent on Russian gas. The Kremlin is responded by accusing Washington of trying to promote its own liquefied natural gas sales
Russian ships move to resume Baltic pipeline construction
"Consortium building. The Nord Stream to gas pipeline led by the Russian energy giant Gazprom has said work is due to resume on the project despite continued opposition from the United States and several European countries. The pipeline under the Baltic Sea will boost Russian natural gas shipments to Europe, bypassing Ukraine. German shipping authorities have now advised vessels to avoid the Baltic Sea area where the underwater pipeline is being constructed.
On the Origin of English
"So here is the basic story. The idea is that germanic goes back to some original language. We call it proto germanic. We can't know what it speakers would've called it. There was this original language that became german and english and swedish et cetera and that would have been spoken probably in that little neck of denmark or maybe a little southwards of that in. Let's say about five hundred bc. So that's where proto germanic would have started in the meantime there's a thesis that that language was profoundly impacted by invading or at least imposing people from the near east people from way down where there is today lebanon and syria and israel specifically it would be the phoenicians. The phoenicians were one of many people in that region and they would have spoken a semitic language. I e a language related to what we know today as hebrew and arabic and if we wanna go. Further afield aramaic and cross the red sea. And it's i'm hurric- in ethiopia. But they spoke of semitic language and we know what they spoke because they wrote it down because they actually were the first people who grabbed the alphabet when it was very quietly and scrap invented probably by mercenary soldiers in egypt. The finishes took it and made into something that they use. Basically to write down business related things they want writing epochs. They weren't writing the grapes of wrath. But they were writing and so the phoenicians are the ones who end up spreading the alphabet throughout the world. In any case more to the point the phoenicians were big travelers. they did not like to stay home. The phoenicians started ruling the roost. They were probably in about eleven hundred bc and they didn't just stay there they sailed. They traded they got themselves around what was then considered by people like them the world throughout the mediterranean they keep on going westward and of course once you get out to where there's no more land while you might start going up into like spain and they kind of around the coast they traded. They brought things back. They were great intermediaries now in the middle east. They had their cities like like tire and blows or carthage. That you hear so much about on the north coast of africa that is phoenician or punic territory but they sailed and you know there is evidence that they sailed not only to roughly spain and portugal. Which is what we have absolutely concrete evidence for them doing but as evidence that they kept going and they went all the way up to northern europe and past. What's now germany. And they actually would have gone all the way to that part of denmark. One little piece of evidence is that they got people. Amber got some amber in greece. If you've got some amber and what is today lebanon. While the amber as often as not from up in that baltic northern european region they had a lot of amber amber is pretty. I think amber is preserving bits of dinosaur tales and insects and things like that but also just gorgeous you kind of want to bite it. Big amber trade. Well they always seem to have it. We'll have they get it. Well it would seem that. They had some sort of connection to northern europe. That in itself doesn't mean that they sailed all the way up there and got it because there were ways of trading amber just a cross the european continent but the fact that they had so much amber is one of a great many things. It's like the spokes in a wheel. An argument is about various things that all seem to point in the same direction. What about that amber. But more to the point it's about the language what is wrong with manic. Why is it so odd. Well what is this case that these people came from the near east and sailed all the way up around your understand. What the thesis is. The idea is that speakers of phoenician settled in somewhere in this part of denmark and there was long-term settlement where speakers of this phoenician and speakers of this thing we called proto germanic mixed to the point that many people were basically speaking proto germanic in phoenician to an extent this is what we linguists call language contact theory. The idea being that proto germanic ended up being really stamped by this other way of being a language because there would have been these settlements where venetians ruled the roost and their language seemed to be the cool one and it was the one that people switch to so the proto germanic ended up being profoundly affected it kind of wanted to be cool and became more like venetian. What's the evidence that that happened given that. There is no archaeological evidence. Partly because what would have been the shore back then has since become underwater. So we can't really dig up wear. The settlements probably would have been well. One of the things is words. So as i said so many words in germanic languages don't trace back. They just pop up all of a sudden it's about one in three and that's a conservative estimate. Now some of the experts. Just don't give a damn about that. And they have other things to do. They have bigger fish to fry in that as perfectly understandable. Sometimes you just don't give a damn you know what i don't care about. For example i do not care about outer space. I remember when there was the apollo landing and everybody was so excited and they actually rolled in a little black and white. Tv into my classroom. We were supposed to watch. I didn't care. I'm more interested in what's going on here astrophysics. I respect it. But i do not care about saturn
Passengers spend night on Baltic Sea ferry that ran aground
