"Online national rifle association I mean the guy does not have a career I mean you know the program bill Whittle Hey Glen it's great to be here I just heard your introduction you know when I realized if you ever need proof there's a loving god and that's a close insure were we sitting on a mountain top desperate to come in this is normal bill first of all congratulations on Apollo eleven I don't think I've talked to since the success of that now you're back with the second series this is a ten episode series and I listen to the first episode it's highly produced really well researched you know it's it's what we saw but it should be what we're what what we heard because you have found all of the audio clips from the from the from the Cold War and put them all together in such a way to where somebody who didn't live through it can really understand it and feel it yeah as a matter of fact there is just so much history they're going that we had to make it twelve parts I just couldn't get that many sardines in a can you know that don't when you're talking about a a conflict that took forty two years there's so much history there but the one thing I was determined to do from the beginning was something I I it just haven't seen ever in terms of the Cold War and that was to talk about the moral dimensions of that conflict everybody talks about it like it was kind of coke versus Pepsi and red team blue team these two opposing forces but no one no one ever really gets down to the fundamental under unbelievable chasm in morality between the two sides so so it could go into that explain that a bit sure will probably that that took his way to put it is you know I'm on one day Joseph Stalin signed over four thousand death warrants personally and on one day Eisenhower once got so mad that he threw a golf club on a on a I'm parliament if you think that these two things at the same if you think that these are equivalent leaders with a quick one tempers and equivalent you know black marks on the record if you've got a serious serious serious emotional problems but people do do I mean we're due we're dealing with is now with China we just I just did a special last night on on China would Joe Biden and hunter Biden hunter Biden invested in face plus plus which is a software app developed by the Chinese government he invested in it and what it does is it helps them track down all of the Uighurs and all of the people that are dissidents there and since this app is out thirteen hundred concentration camps have been built and he's put he's helping in sleeve these people we people like you and me and our listeners you know we simply can't believe that that kind of thing could be true but you have to just step back and realize that the people who were dealing with political power is not just there it's not just their religion or their god it's their hobby it's there it's there past time it's it's it's everything to them and and there is nothing that they won't do for power and what I was trying to deal with this history in terms and you know we had Republican presidents democratic presidents when it came right down to the ground the the only way I could see to divide the two sides to say was the individualist versus the collectivist exactly and the collectivist have this view that the state is the only thing that's worth protecting and any number of sacrifices for the status find and they refuse to look at a hundred people or whatever the number is as people it's just a number it's that many it's that many gears that failed on the machine and they simply have to be replaced and those are individual people and and they're priceless and their unique and and their loss this is dear to to the people next to them as as is the loss of you know hunter Biden to whoever particularly blood center but no that's a short list but nevertheless there you go it's one of the things that struck me the most about this is there's a socially to not refer to the gulag system of the gulag archipelago this four hundred plus little camps scattered around the biggest country in the world and one of them was Coleman and Coleman was not a death camp like the not he said it was a work camp but the problem is it's a work camp for your life expectancy was about a year and if you're working in the gold mines it was four months old eight hundred thousand people died at Cole about eight hundred thousand that puts it probably second or third on the leader board from hell after ocean which in Treblinka and no one has ever heard of it ever I've never heard of it were no pictures yeah so if what ownership why why he's four months in the gold mines what was life like there well for one thing in Coleman it it's one of the places where bike sure coincidence the the Fahrenheit in the center great skills actually match the same thermometer reading on such a great occurs at forty degrees below zero so you've got people who were who for the most part were musicians scientists you know just just people who happen to have an opinion maybe somebody got woke up and remembered something additional mumbled and somebody wanted that guy's apartment or his wife and that was out there breaking rocks at forty degrees below zero one of the most heart breaking stories and one of the things I try to do in this series is to get to the human like the human side of it you know and and there is a tremendous book called Coleman stories and the one that never left he was this this one intellectual was out there he'd been working all day in the in the mines they came to pick him up after he got back in at the end of the day and they they were taken out to shoot him he knew it was being taken out to be shot and the last thing you said was if I'd known they were taking me out to shoot because there would not gone out to work I wouldn't I wouldn't I wouldn't have gone out there and spent the last eight hours in agony and dozens this is the place to Bernie Sanders says this land is your land this land is my land you know it it's it's it's it's beggars imagination so let me play something here for you bill and just get your just get your reaction to this let me play the audio of Bernie Sanders on all of the things that he has said about communist countries in the past he loves them listen to this.

"The Ben Shapiro so we're joined on set by bill Whittle of course the author public speaker and he's provided political commentary for fox news natural human other things also the writer and performer of Apollo eleven what we saw on the podcast there is a twenty number one on iTunes and is back with season two the Cold War what we vouch can be more relevant today bill they for somebody great to be here but so let's talk about the Cold War what we saw what what is the actual scope of the series what's it about well it's forty two your piece of history and that's a lot of history and I wanted to tell the story from the point of view that I've never heard told about before people talk about the conflict in these economic and that the military and all the rest of it but I I wanted specifically to concentrate on the moral aspects of moral differences between these two sides because the way it's taught retroactively it's kind of it's called purses Pepsi in a team blue team read more or less the same begun misunderstanding two giant militaristic countries with these armies and and missiles and they're more or less the same but they're not they're not more or less the same he did the nature of of of the Communist Party let me let me rephrase this what I basically did was I decided with all of the terms of change so much liberals conservatives talks and if someone it's individualist versus collectivist that's the Cold War right there it's a it's a collectivist ideology that's been here from the beginning of time namely that the peasants are just dispensable pieces of people that you throw into the machine versus this brand new ideology of individualism and and when the Cold War started this collectivist idea just kinda went in and started to run from the east from from Stalingrad and then this individual's floss became short Normandy and where they met at the end of World War two was what began the stage for World War three so with all of that so we're seeing the the Cold War I says great echoes today in the United States and when the when the Soviet Union fell there is a widespread perception of communism had been defeated right and now we see Bernie Sanders who back literally every communist regime of the twentieth century you know so long as he is in a live yeah and he is in all likelihood going to be the democratic nominee so what exactly has happened that Americans forgot about the moral conflict which by the way Democratic Party was on the right side of this during the call absolutely yeah yeah Truman and Kennedy and and yeah you know what it reminds me of been strange enough watching what what you said about how we almost we almost be communism and now here it is again reminds me of that scene in the first lord of the rings movie were Gandalf defeats the bell road and it falls into the pit of fire and just as it's going down it throws it whip up there what's your on the ankle and pulls the forces of good back into it Bernie Sanders took his honeymoon you know if you really want to go someplace with a beloved someplace we can relax kind of kick back what better than Moscow in early spring right there's video of burning in a room with other Russians any singing this land is your land this land is mine that land is a land where right now today in Libya aka square is one of largest toy stores in the world beautiful Moscow's beautiful right across the street in a building called the Lubyanka which is an office buildings built enough like early nineteen hundreds of that will be okay was was the office of these Soviet secret police and for twenty five or thirty years every single night hundreds and hundreds of people were lined up six across been shot in the back of the head and then they go get some more they put him on a trolley string them up put in a cart they bring in six more people put him in front of the store stores which it didn't go anywhere just like their futures the doors were there just to make sure that the ricochets didn't hurt though the the checklists and these people would get them strip naked and then once again six because of race a revolver think should win the back of the head compare to paint this one for year after year after year after year after year that building still stands Bernie Sanders must know that Aubrey center supporters we saw on tapes of his campaign organised talking house where the glove was a house well the the the White Sea canalis the worst of the places in the gulag was it was a chemical Colma where the temperature in the winter coincidentally is the only place for Fahrenheit and centigrade matched forty degrees below zero and Bernice position would be well it wasn't a death camp like the **** it was a work camp it was a work camp in your life expectancy was about a year if you look at if you were working on the gold mines it was four months we think that probably eight hundred thousand people maybe a few more died in Kollam that's one camp in the entire three hundred plus camps of the blue one that means the call amount on the leader board from hell is probably third house what's first trip when the second column of the terms of number of people have been murdered in one particular patch for Eddie Sanders goes over to this place and sings this land is your land this land is my land one of the guys who was in his campaign said whoa socialism for first well after talk about putting by political opponents in the gloves which then went on to defend he also said and they had they've got together and built this canal the people got together just build the canal well they were to go to who was head of the secret police had attempted to impress Stalin by building a canal from the from the Baltic to the White Sea and he used a hundred twenty five prison what pondered twenty five thousand labors from the prisons twenty five thousand of them were killed on the job that's a hundred and seventy seven individual human lives per mile and when the canal was finished it was built so quickly that they couldn't put any ships through it and this is what Bernice campaign people and burning himself think of as the model society Bernie Sanders knows that the Baltic White Sea canal cost twenty five thousand much to build he knows that the Coleman camp killed hundreds of thousands of people in that one location that there were three hundred plus others around the country he knows all of that he knows that he knows that the that the Soviets at the Chernobyl explosion had the government regulating electricity and when this thing blew up a blow up because the reactor design with the use was cheaper was much more dangerous but it was cheaper and they didn't build the containment structure around Chernobyl because that also cost more money so what's the worst that can happen we can kill a few thousand people right there cogs their pieces of machinery and those people so that's Russian somebody wants to talk about nationalizing the electric man tire electric grid of the United States two three days ago he wants to do the electrical system what they did to the agricultural system and that cost ten million people killed people real people like you and me real people like movie stars it's almost like Charlie staring almost that real you know or as real as maybe that Affleck or or Matt Damon and this is the thing about this collectivist ideologies yeah so we have to kill a few million people they're real people better as you well know so the fact is the Bernie Sanders is of course expressed support for a lot of these genes he claims of course that he is really just talking that Denmark or Norway and people have been falling for this track for a while now people been suggesting when he says democratic socialism he really just means the capitalist systems in northern Europe that have heavy welfare systems when in fact again his call throughout his career for nationalization of nearly every major industry that you can think of any never explained how he changed his opinion media let him get away with this item some of course because they also seem to assume that communism just has never been properly tried the international as all of the systems but why should we look at the Soviet Union wasn't it just that a system of battery as opposed to the inevitable consequence of nationalizing major industries well my question to people who'd say wasn't done right would be well if you if you end up killing forty or thirty or forty million people minimum minimum minimum in the Soviet Union then you kill fifty million people when you try to do it in China you kill seven million people when you try to do it in Cambodia and you kill at least two or three million in Korea as a result of that where the north the communist invaded the south the calmest invaded the south Vietnam's another five six seven million there the couple three four five million and in South America including Venezuela now what you're starving to death and it makes me want to ask people if your if your philosophy is the kind of philosophy that has failed so many times and killed two hundred million people maybe it's not such a good idea you know maybe it's not but to give them to give them the say the Cold War was was the ideal world the the ideologies in their purest form against each other so so Bernie and and these will so we we're not talking about the Serbian we're talking about Sweden we're talking about Norway well Sweden doesn't work because they don't make enough Swedes sweetness had to import all of these immigrants were not Swedes Swedish women cannot walk the streets in and also in the in Stockholm anymore because they're still simply be attacked in right and I was in Norway just a few months ago which is a very lovely place in Norway sells billions and billions and billions of dollars of North Sea oil two people that burn it rather cleanly and capitalism pays for it for Norway as well the only the only thing I said when I was in Norway for five days it really really really seem to offend my host was when I said this is a socialist country they don't like that at all okay well the series is the Cold War what we saw the host is bill would also final question for you yeah it's not just the Bernie Sanders I too who obviously have have looked beyond the costs of of communism we live in a time when there a lot of people who have been looking the other way on China and simply assuming that everything to do with China is totally fine and dandy it is an enormous evil regime I mean it's responsible three and sixty five million forced abortions minimum so over the last several decades is responsible for these four sterilizations of tens of millions of women is responsible for what may end up being actionable like disaster in its cover up of the of the coronavirus I it's it's it it's a horrible horrible staying at people treated as sort of a normal part of everyday life why the difference why is it that we looked at the Soviet Union and we saw a moral clarity we look at China and we seen state sponsored capitalism single party effectiveness and and everything your times wants us to see in China well it's just the truck the truck you know China's today's Soviet Union right I mean the the the right the Soviet Union as a communist entity is gone the the left through through shade over the Serbian during the entire time I was there some people had the legitimate defense of being able to say they didn't really know what was going on in the Soviet Union in the twenties and thirties you could probably make that case other people like Walter Duranty knew full well what was going on people were being murdered by the millions and he at the New York times apartments great they give a Pulitzer Prize times hasn't returned it yet so China is just today's example of communism that we can just sort of turn a blind eye to in people where check of our T. shirts but they don't wear Heinrich Himmler tee shirts and the death count on communism is far higher than a far higher than than than what the **** did and and you know been what it is is it's a it's an unwillingness to accept the fact that if you look at people as as cogs of of a wheel inside a state rather than individuals the power it takes to suppress individual work and the desire to keep what you work the the political power necessary to do that is the same political power that is necessary to kill people and the best example of this is simply in the in the Soviet Union they killed all of the engineers that killed all the educated people anybody with relatives of broader had been abroad so they kill all the engineers now all of a sudden there something honest to god like sixty thousand train accidents on one line in one year in the Soviet Union how do you explain this well they've got to be sabotage you gotta be records it's got the system is perfect so the fact that we kill the people know what they're doing can't have anything to do with it the system is always ready can never be wrong and and D. the reason we were even talking about having a socialist today is because we have never had a consistent are you going to stop sexual but pointing out point by point of how many people have to die to make this thing work and the final final final thing is this Fidel Castro is a man of the people is a so that you know is a he was a he was a man of the people when I get eight hundred million dollars in his personal bank account let it didn't go back to being a failed lawyer Trotsky didn't do this and and Bernie Sanders was talking about income inequality has three houses I mean how dumb do you have to be to keep falling for this con well bill.

"Bill Whittle joins us now he is he's done a documentary on Apollo eleven and he's done it on the daily wires YouTube and it is really really good welcome to the program bill good morning when I'm on the bleachers are very very good so tell tell me the story because this is already I don't know if you've seen what they're saying now that this is the white patriarchy and everything else and we're not supposed to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing but it is a remarkable thing that happened fifty years ago I'm so glad you brought that up because as you well know if you ever saw the footage the the kind of the the highlight of the moon landing was when Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin planted that giant foam we're number one finger in the store started chanting USA USA we're number one well you will notice that they were wearing white suits and while their hats were and pointed they were still white here's what I want to bring that up what they what they said when they got off the the the latter and they went to the plaque on the on the on those leg of the lamb they read a plaque that still there it'll be there forever and here's what it said it said here man from planet earth first set foot upon the moon July nineteen sixty nine we came in peace for all mankind that that is not the most gracious generous deeply deeply humble and and and kind of magnificent thing to bill they use the word man twice well there you go I guess they didn't say one him which made it or your logic they didn't say him her or they them and that's the real issue here bill it didn't tell me that because I think this is really fascinating that the world as they watched more people saw this than anything else we watched it simultaneously all around the world in every country and it what's amazing about the way this was done is the rest of the world did not look at this as an American thing they looked at it as humans actually being able to pull this off precisely right six hundred million people watched this back in nineteen sixty nine which means that every single person on the planet who had access to a television set watched at the same time if they were if they don't have a TV set that go and and looking through store windows were they were selling TV sets I was lucky enough to have watch the moon landing at age ten from the plaza hotel and there were tens of thousands of people in Central Park watching it on projection screens down there and you're and you're absolutely right no one thought of it as an American moment everybody thought of it as a human moment and and I think that's what makes some people just so bigger Longley opposed to this whole idea because it wasn't just a great technological achievement it was a great check technological achievement accomplished by the United States of America but done in such up in such a generous and and noble fashion that everybody on earth felt like this was their achievement right it wasn't it was never phrased as I mean there was the competition with the Soviet Union and that is one of the reasons you know Kennedy knew we've got to get our crap together because we have to be in space but that was never the spirit of it no not with any of the astronauts now with the people of NASA they were just looking to do something that mankind had never done before precisely right and on a later mission when they left a plaque for the dead astronauts and cosmonauts who died in the attempt included the US Soviet cosmonauts on that plaque as well it was it was the only way for us to fight a war that we've been in for fifty years and by the way we used all of our what otherwise would have been destructive methods of war we used missiles and rocket technology we had test pilots we had aircraft carriers recovering the vehicles we had our radar stations tracking on which were originally designed of course to track incoming missiles all of this military hardware got channeled into the only place for we could actually compete with that hardware and not face the fact that each side had twenty five thousand nuclear weapons pointed at and people you know before the Soviet Union collapsed people don't understand that basically in the early to mid sixties towards late sixties this entire thing was basically a sales pitch when you know the the world consisted of the free countries and then they the first world the second World rolled the socialist nations and then the huge uncommitted third world we were basically in an ad campaign against the Soviets trying to convince them that our system was better and I might point out that by the middle of nineteen fifty eight the Russians have watched the first two satellites for combined weight of one thousand three hundred pounds and we'd launch the second to for a combined rate of thirty three counts so we're down forty to one in nineteen fifty eight and and when Kennedy became president he understood that we we we could not as a nation survive with forget the technological edge we couldn't as a nation survive thinking that we were second best and so he proposed the hardest thing that's ever been done and frankly when he got it all in the first seven words we said we choose to go to the moon and that was the hard part making the choice everything after that was just an engineering challenge it's amazing to me and I wonder whether this could happen again I've I've had several conversations with the historian Arthur Herman about the concept in one of his books which is the freedoms forage and how he won World War two I'm not sure that we could do that today I mean we have Google working with the Chinese and not with the Americans I'm I'm not sure we could get everybody on board today like we did then well I have to tell you up until about two years ago I mean I was an Apollo kiddo I was an astronaut of five budget is just work that had to be completely right but up until about two years ago I thought man we we really may have lost the search and then when I saw SpaceX SpaceX when the falcon heavy booster simultaneously and I heard the easier that went up from the SpaceX millennials who were in large part the engineers for this I realized I had heard that sound in forty nine years and that was not since that night on July twentieth nineteen sixty nine any company whose official recovery vehicle is named of course I still love you that companies going to Mars they're going to do things and have already done things that the Russians can't do the Chinese can't do the Europeans can't do and and NASA can't do because because that company is under that is under the vision of a person one individual who decide take you know what might be kind of fun the launch of a Tesla into space will play David Bowie music and what his trackers guide to the galaxy on the navigation screen inconceivable that Boeing would do such a thing right but but they're having fun that's the difference this time they're having fun this is much more like what we're going through now is much more like the turn of the last century where the inventors were rebels right and trust they were it was the wild west of invention yes the if you think about all the names of some of the names I just mentioned Boeing Grohman Northrop shoes Cessna we're these are all named for individual people and what it meant was was if you had a vision you could take a risk because the company belong to you and all the innovations came out of that but even some of the big failures like the like uses a Hercules which everybody called the spruce goose he said I want to build the largest your plan in the world he was not but since it was his company he could do it it turned out that that particular experiment failed but somebody said it we got a perfectly once they said if there had been an FAA in the golden age of aviation in the nineteen thirties than today we would be traveling from New York to Los Angeles in a propeller powered airplane with wooden wings four thousand feet it would take forty hours and cost nine thousand dollars and that's what happens when you let people compete against each other and and try for the top instead of for the bottom is there still a because I'm I'm about your age bill and I remember I saw something just the other day that is one of those those like robotic hands that you just you you have a a grip and just an extension and it can get things off of shelves and I thought oh my gosh I haven't seen one of these since I was a kid and that was a toy had no it was like oh that's the robotic hand from space and that's with the that's what the hell they're using on the moon in it it's now it's just the you know something that you use you know to get things off of a of a higher shelf is there is there that moment of imagination like we used to have when we were kids with the with the moon shot it's funny you mention that because in the first episode of the separately out what's going on with the actual landing I say you can't understand how we landed on the moon unless you understand the idea of a cap gun because in the fifties and sixties was nobody was talking about space yet Sputnik hadn't happened so was cowboys and Indians land but here you are you want to sell it a toy again to kids and what you want is you want the kid to be able to pull the trigger have a go bang and if you can't smoke come out of it even better so this isn't red dead redemption and we're not gonna do it in the unreal four engine and we don't have particle effects and we're not gonna have sound effects we have to physically make this thing work in the real world so they decided I know let's make a little red strip of paper will put little blobs of actual gun powder there and when you pull the trigger it'll pop that little thing the gun powder to go bang and and and there's a spot that's an actual engineering challenge and you you couldn't do that in a computer you had to make it work in the real world and that practicality was what allowed us to get to the moon that and the fact that you and I had fathers that would let their sons go out with rolls a caption actual climbers national at the same time and make a it was an eye in the process well that's the price to go to the moon that's right that's exactly right bill thank you for this great salute to Apollo eleven and to the moon shot and reminding us how good it felt how good it felt thank you the thing I'm most proud about this story is there are so many backstage human element so many weird things but buzz Aldrin said held communion on the moon the first fluid poured on another planet was wine there's so many interesting human stories behind the technology and I'm just extremely honored to have had a chance to speak for those men of whom I think for remain who actually walked on the moon it's a tremendous honor for us thanks bill bill Whittle bill Whittle dot com you can find this documentary that he is done it's fantastic it's Apollo eleven what we saw on comes from our friends at the daily wire you fight a daily wears YouTube Apollo eleven what we saw.

"This is the Ben Shapiro said a lot coming up for you this hour a little bit later on in the hour we'll be joined by bill Whittle who is the host of brand new podcast which daily where is involved Apollo eleven what we saw because this year is course the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo eleven moon landing will also get to the radicalism of Alexander because of course has his chief of staff who admitted today to a Washington post reporter that the green new deal is not actually about the environment it's about radically changing the United States economy but one of the big pieces of news that's largely being ignored today's the house voted to check president trump's authority to strike a run according to The New York Times the house voted on Friday to curb president trump's ability to strike run militarily on Friday adopting a bipartisan provision that would require the president to get congress' approval before authorizing military force against Iran the two fifty one one seventy vote reflects lawmakers growing desire to take back long seemed authority over matters of war and peace from the executive branch that my great criticism of this is that it is only with regard to one area of the of the executive authority it seems to me that the original constitutional structure required a declaration of war well joining us on the line to discuss what exactly should be done with regard to Iran and with regard to NATO is a man who knows better than anybody else but I know admiral James Stavridis his former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO author of a bunch of bestselling books has a new book coming out later this year in October called sailing true north is currently the chair of the board of US naval institution vetted by both the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Donald Trump campaign as a possible member of the cabinet or possibly vice presidential stuff Regis thanks so much for joining us always a pleasure band so let's start with this you even watching the developments with Iran is run has gotten more militant has looked to attack shipping in the strait of Oman they they apparently in the last couple of days were about to attack a British ship and they were sort of dissuaded from doing so by military show of force on the on the allied side what exactly should the world be looking to do with the run giving Iran's new found aggressiveness first we are recognized how ARE Ron sees the region and the challenges in Iran as you well know band is the inheritor of the Persian empire and if you go back and look at a map of the Persian empire about two thousand years ago stretches from the Mediterranean Sea through Damascus to Baghdad to Tehran through Afghanistan to India and south to the Arabian peninsula it's really no coincidence that Ron will continue to push all of the boundaries of that because it's for them a religious mission proselytising for the sheer part of the Islamic faith so first and foremost we are recognized the challenge number two is to deal with that we're gonna have to confront Iran but also negotiate with Iran and those are two separate aspects of policy we're pretty good at confronting Arron were not so good at the moment of negotiating with Iran we really need to do both and thirdly we need a unified front we sort of drifted into this situation where this is about the U. S. versus you Ron we need to widen the aperture so that it's the entire global community which wants to keep this greater for moose open we have many allies partners and friends who can and will work with us we have some disagreements with our European colleagues at the moment about the approach on countering Iran's nuclear program but broadly speaking the third most important thing we should do is work with allies partners and friends to both confront and ultimately negotiate with Iran has a goal of what kind of confrontation am real simply just you think that we should be pursuing so obviously the president apparently had planes in the air call them back after a run not down a United States drum there's controversy over whether that was good move or a bad move the user had to make the call one way or another kind of deleting on it was was sort of the worst signal you consent to around there's been talk about flagging international ships of the American flag or putting American resources around shipping in the strait of Hormuz the way that we did back in the nineteen eighties what do you think would be the best tactic in terms of protecting that area I think that here we really can take a page out of history and go back to the tanker war not encourage your listeners to dust off that history you can Google simply tanker war in this is in the nineteen eighties we had a actually a very similar situation Iran continue to threaten to close this greater for moose actually dump combines into the water tankers were hitting mind some of them were damaged we have the prospect of sinking tankers that would have closed this great you can sweep of mine you can't sweep that tanker that sunk at the bottom of the straight if it's going to impede traffic so how did we handle that situation ultimately we had to use military force ereli dramatically against Iran we sang several of their ships we knocked out on much of their command control we went after some of their porch once we showed that military car did them in a very serious way ultimately they backed out I don't think we're at the point yet band where we need an aggressive a wide range of strikes and I think the president was right to hold on the previous strike but if you run continues on this collision course and for example actually seizes and tries to takeover of British tanker I think that's gonna require a military confrontation let's hope we don't get there well given all of this in and given the flexibility the president needs what do you make of the house votes today to to basically prevent the president from taking unilateral unilateral measures against the government of Iran I was in the Senate has not pass anything remotely like that and over the course of the last century the power to make war has basically drifted from the legislature to the executive branch the thing is a good idea or bad idea for Congress to be taking back this sort of power at this point I think it's a bad idea for Congress to say to the executive branch you have to come to us before you conduct individual military strikes I think there are going to be instances where the executive branch needs the flexibility and I think president Obama would tell you this president W. bush would tell you this and I think president trump administration is going to make this point pretty vividly that a tool of the conduct of foreign power yeah is ultimately going to require some level of military strikes in my view that's different than going to the Congress which I think is appropriate if you're going to embark on a long campaign which would fall under the rubric of an actual bore so I think it is not appropriate for the Congress to say any time you're going to conduct a military strike you have to come to Congress and get approval that simply untenable and we're talking with the admiral James seven it's final question for you admiral separate is when when we look at Iran and we look at the possibility of negotiating with them on nuclear question what help what what approach should be taken to the the great yeah the great drawback of the Iran deal was put in place by the Obama administration in my opinion the opinion of many on the right I is that it didn't deal at all with Iran's missile capacity with its capacity to fund terrorism and that after ten years of basically gave them free rein to pursue a nuclear weapon now the strength and economy that strengthen the hand of the regime what should the United States be looking for from Ron in any sort of negotiation given the fact that if Ron wanted to denuclearize they could do that immediately and they would pretty much immediately be welcome in the world economy I know in there I am frankly at times surprised they're not gonna do that but let's go back to where we started the conversation your view is they want to be a dominant power in the region what we should do is get our European allies back in alignment with us the economy of Iran is crumbling at the moment under very aggressive sanctions in the United States that's the right course of action I think ultimately we will succeed in forcing a run back to the negotiating table and when we do that we need a better version of the old nuclear deal that would include include restrictions on the ballistic missiles and on the use it as a surrogate activity through the region look this is gonna be a long process but we ought to start by getting the Europeans on side with us when Iran takes actions like trying to attack a British tanker they're playing into our hands the French are already with us the British will come our way NATO can be big tool in this its allies partners and friends get it out of U. S. versus Iran let's get back to the world versus run to actually I did have one more question for reasons of course you are the former Supreme Allied Commander of NATO there a lot of folks on the right who is sort of didn't mean what NATO means why we are finding it a why we're in it a short case for why NATO still matters I sure can first and foremost let's do the numbers U. S. spend six hundred billion a year on defense China spends two hundred billion Russia spends eighty billion how much do those quote free loading on quote European spent three hundred billion NATO the rest of NATO outside the United States spends more than Russia and China come by so we may be frustrated they don't hit that two percent of GDP target but frankly they're the second largest defense budget in the world after our point to geography they are parked right on the edge of all the global trouble spots they become a very logical forward operating station for us in number three bands at the end of the day dear frustrating but they share our values values matter between nations I think they're still a very strong case for NATO with a push them on spending I applaud the president for doing so they are improving as a result of that work I think however we need to recognize their the best pool of partners we're gonna find in the world and religion service thanks so much for joining show really appreciate check out his book come October twenty nineteen so we'll have my again before that sailing from north address for this entry time man thanks a lot talk next time bye bye in just a minute we're gonna be getting to bill little will stop by to talk about how love is the fiftieth anniversary this year we have a brand new series about it but first if you believe that you are not things you've done if you believe that.

S. spend six hundred billion a year on defense China spends two hundred billion Russia spends eighty billion how much do those quote free loading on quote European spent three hundred billion NATO the rest of NATO outside the United States spends more than Russia and China come by so we may be frustrated they don't hit that two percent of GDP target but frankly they're the second largest defense budget in the world after our point to geography they are parked right on the edge of all the global trouble spots they become a very logical forward operating station for us in number three bands at the end of the day dear frustrating but they share our values values matter between nations I think they're still a very strong case for NATO with a push them on spending I applaud the president for doing so they are improving as a result of that work I think however we need to recognize they are the best pool of partners were gonna find in the world and religion service thanks so much for joining show really appreciate check out his book come October twenty nineteen so we'll have my again before that sailing from north address to be safer time band thanks a lot talk next time bye bye in just a minute we're gonna be getting to bill little will stop by to talk about how love is the fiftieth anniversary this year we have a brand new series about it but first if you believe that you are not things you've done if you believe that people don't.

"On external papers. The written word is not a recipe is a recipe for memory. But for reminder, and it is not true wisdom that you offer your disciples. But only the semblance of it those who rely on reading for their knowledge will seem to know much while for the most part, they know nothing they will be filled with wisdom, but with the conceit of wisdom. So as argument is that. Once the light ones written languages, invented. We will be replacing inner memories memories and thoughts and wisdom written on our souls and our brains and our souls. They didn't use the word brain. Because Socrates thought that the Aristotle thought that the brain was there to warrant to keep the body cool to keep the body from overheating so back, then they didn't remember their concept of the brain. But anyway that other back in the day before language things are written on their own our hearts, and our souls. But now that we can just write stuff down. Are they don't remember things anymore? We know that's true. That's absolutely true. We used to live in an oral based society stories were passed down. You had to memorize things the only way. Things could you could know anything and that muscle inside of us was very strong to of just giving speeches back in the day. Great orators would memorize to our long speeches. And today recently, Barack Obama was known as this amazing orator. Did you just read the teleprompter? Great order. Because of things being written down. We don't have to remember facts. We just know that we can look up something I would compete if we need to we need to recall it, but that doesn't that's not wisdom. We don't need to remember scripture anymore. Gotcha bible app on your phone. Poetry does that Rudyard Kipling poem? If how does it start again? I don't know. So I mean, do we really know things 'cause I'd argue that were at an age where there's more information than ever, certainly. But we're less wise than ever. Things that used to be known and imprinted on our hearts and souls. We've exported to the printed page, I guess, maybe it's no different than the calculator to. I remember being in school, and with my TI eighty nine and all the time kids were asking, we I and other students were asking why we need to know math when we have a calculator. What do we need to know how to do this? It just type it in the calculator and the answer that question is the calculator doesn't give you understanding. It doesn't give you a visual of how math works at what math ease gives you the answer. But it doesn't give you an understanding of it. So we lose the conceptual understanding of math when we just punch numbers into a calculator to get an answer. And argue we've done the same thing with history. We've done the same thing with scripture. We've done the same thing with. Just logic. Now, we see and understand the world and how we make arguments and listen to each other. We've lost all of that. Now, this is not an argument against books argument against written language and arguments, the alphabet, I really even an argument against the internet. My point is is that this is an ancient theme. How technology affects our brains. Plato was debating this over two thousand years ago. Twitter and social media's it's just the latest version of it. But I don't think it's making us better. I don't think it's making us wiser. To our last guest. Bill whittle. How do we reach kids who can't.
