"Try to catch up a little bit. Now, this new DDG acts worship. I love that they come up with new concepts, congressman, but you've seen for a long time. Weapons systems get authorized a lot of money gets spent and then they get killed because they don't get built on time. What are you going to do to assure that these destroyers and especially the frigates rolling off the lineup in Wisconsin, Gallagher's district actually make it to sea? Well, I remember I had a conversation with the chief naval operations about that the other day. We have this zumwalt destroyer that we had a lot of hope for and then it ends up obviously costly more than we thought. And then the gun doesn't work. So we can't have those kinds of mistakes. We can't afford it. We got to make these make sure that we get the ships done properly on paper, then build them and build them on time and on budget. And we can't afford to go through these exercises anymore. I saw the littoral combat ship they put out a request for proposals on how to repurpose it last last week. They actually don't know what to do with the ships that we built the last time around. Now Democrats are in charge of the committee. I don't know if they're fully funding the navy. But the real hard choice. I don't want to put you in hot water here. There's some marines out in the desert. I don't know if you get 29 palms in the new district or does that go to the other district? No, no, but they pumps up against the 29 bombs. Okay, so you'll get some marines living in your area and you'll get a lot of retired marines like Jack Brennan living in your area. But the marines are going to like this, but the army's not going to like what I'm about to say in the air force might not like it. We have to downsize old Bing army and upsize navy and Marine Corps. And is the Congress up to that fight. As you know, we have a new commandant and he has big plans for the Marine Corps. He wants to modernize the core, make it faster, make it more effective, especially in the South Pacific. I think we are up for that fight. I know that my colleagues on our committee and on the authorizing committee understands the threat. And the Marine Corps is going to be on the leading edge of that. And so we need to make sure the core is strengthened and that they can get to the fight and then he ships to do that. And we need to make sure to have those ships in the South Pacific. I hope that I hope that means yes. I think that means yes. Now let me ask you congressman about internal Republican politics. You're one of the few bridge Congress people, meaning that you're very friendly with the former president Trump, you're very friendly with leader McCarthy. You bridge the party. You've been doing this a long time. You're a pro. How is the caucus? They're stressed because of this January 6th rump committee. And Liz Cheney's my friend. And I like lose a lot, but there's a lot of stress. And a lot of attention in an attempt to divide the party. What's your take on all this? Well, we have some tension in the party, but we're going to come together. Obviously, this January 6th commission is a witch hunt and it's not serving any purpose other than political purposes for the Democratic Party. And it's putting Kevin in a difficult situation, but he's handling it correct. And he's not going to participate in this. I think all of our members are behind Kevin. There's a few outliers, but it's very few. You will see the leader before I do, but I hope you tell leader McCarthy, please do not appear before that committee. It does injury to the constitution to allow the majority to select the minorities members and to deny the minority representation their own staff, their own subpoena power. It does great damage to the idea of a select committee. This is not a select committee. It's a rough committee. And he should not have anything to do with it. Nordstrom Jim Jordan, nor should anyone, is that the prevailing view within the caucus? Yes. Virtually 99% of us. Has that ever happened before that it's elect committee was a rump committee selected by one party? That's what I've ever heard of. I mean, that's ridiculous. And we're not because of that. We're not going to participate in it. All right, now there's a maneuver going on in the Congress today, where Nancy Pelosi is going to take some park spell or something. Strip out all the language, send it over so that Chuck Schumer can make a run at federalizing election line doing away with voter security. Does that have a prayer? Well, as long as brother mentioned in cinema, stick with us. And I think they will. They've said so so many times. It would be pretty crazy for them to walk away from the filibuster now. You're right, the shell is going over there to for them to fill up the so called election integrity Bill, which is ridiculous. And we need to make sure that stocks. And I think it will. I have faith that senator mentioned. And senator cinema will do the right thing and keep.
"chief naval operations" Discussed on America First with Sebastian Gorka Podcast
"So imagine if the notion has just tuned in to America first one on one, tell them a little bit about whence Steve Bannon came from. Simple, you know, blue collar, Irish family, Irish Catholic family from Virginia, you know, Kennedy Democrats. You know, the family really started to leave the Democratic Party during the Vietnam War and really with president Reagan became full time, although still registered Democrats full time conservatives. I was blessed enough to go into the navy after I went to Catholic military schools of prep school and then when the navy Pacific fleet surface warfare our sports class destroyer a couple of deployments, western Pacific, China, and then did a South China Sea and then did an extended deployment second time during the Iranian hostage crisis to the north Arabian sea camel station in gonzo station with the battle groups up there and then the Persian Gulf back to The Pentagon special system that the chief naval operations got a master's at Georgetown Ludwig was one of my professors. I'm sure he definitely didn't remember me when he brought him into The White House that day because I think it was let's say this I was not an H student Underwood. I don't think he gave a's, right? They thought Americans were not. I doubt it. I doubt he gave any Americans days. No, no. He just thought you guys were just not ready for a's. So Dan Harvard, Goldman Sachs, my own firm, met Andrew breitbart helped finance Andrew breitbart's company and then when Andrew died took over as the chief executive officer executive chairman. I think it was. And then Trump campaign, as you know, Seth brought you in for breitbart radio. You were one of the great calmness and analysts you were on breitbart radio all the time. It kind of built a core group for breitbart London and breitbart Jerusalem breitbart Rome. And of course here. And then, you know, to The White House and the kind of rest is pretty well known. The CEO of the campaign strategists and then back out got the war room and so really as you know step kind of focused on this populist nationalist traditionalist movement over the last decade or so kind of pre Tea Party all the way through. And look, we just had the greatest year. The maga just had its greatest year in history was 2021. We're about it's what 2022 is what I call the valley of decision and it's going to be an epic inflection point American but world history. And so that's why I can't think of anything veterans starting off the new year by talking to you and your audience. Well, we're delighted to have you at board and happy new year to you and the whole war room pandemic crew. And I have to say just for those who aren't familiar, my personal history, so you pulled me in to be a kind of QC guy for the national security coverage. And then I'm sitting in Quantico teaching the Marine Corps as the chair of military theory and I get a phone call from something called Corey Lewandowski in the summer of 15 saying mister Trump needs somebody to help him prep for the national security debate. Would you come to Trump Tower? And I was like, okay, no idea who Corey was, and thanks to you, I get roped in as an adviser to the campaign and The White House. All a two individuals. I made sure it got sent up to brief then candidate Trump because there's only two people I really trusted that I thought had both the geostrategic knowledge and actually kind of because you're both semi really know the operation side was general Mike Flynn in gorka. And I would say you guys did a pretty good job. Well, I think it was pretty well prepped. Thank you. And then I started working with Mike was pulled into the transition team and we were doping out how to build the NSC and I was expecting to do continue my CT work my kind of turns and work for Mike in the National Security Council and then 8 days before the inauguration. Somebody called Bannon says, no, you're not going to the National Security Council. You're coming to work in this superb idea, which has to be reinstated for all conservative administrations. And this is this long range think tank that sits next to the president of the strategic initiatives groups so you're not killed by the tactical and the operational but you can actually do long-term thinking. I also want to say this and this is one of the reasons I pulled you out of NSC and we're going to do that in 24. In fact, we're going to do a mini one of that in 22 sub. We went. But the reason I picked up gorka out, and part of this is your European heritage and really luck fuck. When I talk about the Europeans and the European schools have a deeper understanding of history and strategy and particularly geopolitics and geos geostrategic thinking, since almost all of that's come from Europe, you know, really. Was to pull you out and the big deal was, at that time, you were so focused on the Jihad movement and of course the Middle East and the gulf. One of the things we wanted to do immediately was to get rid of the income mentality that we understood that the greatest threat was the criminal junta in Beijing, which is the Chinese Communist Party. And I remember you and I sitting in the west wing, I said, here's a brother. I'm pulling you out 'cause you're really going to head to kind of interior, the internal think tank that's going to really get us out of syncom. National NSC has got their own thing they got to do every day. But we're going to pull out. We're going to really focus on the war that the Chinese Communist Party has got against the United States right now that both the cyber war, the information we're in the economic court and I think your greatest and confident of all the great things you did in The White House was really head up that transition that keep pivot..

Six months. Food for for each person in your family. I can't afford that. You can't afford not to. You got any money in the bank? If you don't get some money in the bank, do whatever you gotta do. But it's better to have that as an asset. You'll be able to trade this stuff if you need to. But that's that's like investing in anything else. You make an investment and things are of value. Emergency food is of value. By the way, I'm talking emergency food, not Hey, I got some beans. I got cans of beans. So that that's not emergency food. Yeah, but the last couple years.

Now, keep in mind that the vast majority I mean the overwhelming majority of people If they're lucky, have nine days before they go ballistic further out of something. I don't have emergency food. The the majority of people have maybe at most nine days of food. That's it. So when they need food If you think you got it, they're coming to get it. So that's what this prepper videos all about. They're saying Here's what you do to hide your emergency food. You want enough maybe to share with them. Whatever if your neighbors but a certain point You've got to take care of yourself and your family and one of the things they point out in their is that you need to be able to defend yourself. I've been all over that for ever since I've been on the radio. You must have food and water and a means by which to defend your food and water for your family. Now it hits the fan. Roving bank gangs of cannibals. Yeah, All bets are off. But don't you want to Be prepared. I mean, didn't the boy Scouts get that right? They sure as hell did. So get over to Faeroe Neck, Sington.

I like to share good information with you. He's always called the LDS prepper. Get it. He's a Mormon. So what is that? That's uh, Latter day Saints. L. D s prepper He and his wife. Are, by the way, There's people are. We're commenting down the side and somebody made a comment. I really like what he's saying. And along with his mother, and somebody came isn't that's his wife? Uh, anyway, um Valuable information. Valuable information, just outstandingly valuable information. I stuck that up on my site how to protect your food storage from others. You can search that off. There's a number of takes on that. But this guy does an excellent job on it, too. Um so get emergency food. Stick it on the shelf. Forget about it, Find a way to make it so that nobody can really snagged her or recognize it. Disguise it. They come now to look like painter cans like you got cans of paint. And you can get emergency food in cans. What they call 10 number 10 cans or whatever. Uh, And their pouches would be like one meal in a pouch. And then I got, like 30 of them in a canister or whatever. But please have at a minimum six months if you can't afford that, built it a little out of time. You can easily have this calculated out. All these emergency prep food places have that on their site. You know, I'm by myself, I need say, you know, just thinking out loud. This is you. I'm by myself. I need to get food for done it And how many these canisters do I need? It's right there, and I've got family of four. How many do any Bam? It's right there. How many meals are in there? How many calories per day? Uh And then one of them the things my patriot supply. They do a side by side comparison of all the other emergency food. Uh, where calories per day per what? You're paying dollars per per calorie per day. Outstanding, so get connected. Don't put it off. Because that and see the people that put it off. Are the people that will be trying to eat you alive if and when they get really hungry Because they never put anything away. You had destroyed the grasshopper finance right? Well, right now we're, uh we're playing fast and loose and not putting away for our military and Tom Cotton's all over. Tom Cotton is one of the good guys, one of the really good guys. Now, both cotton and banks, grilled navy leadership on diversity training, and they found out that there is that racist. Abram X candy. I think I think Ebert Max Kendis name is something like John Smith or something. And he took on this African name trying to be cool. And Dennis Prager talks about how he will not debate. Of course he won't And he figure would mop the floor with him. So the military has, uh, our military reading this instead of books on military preparedness. That tells me that our military leadership is negligent. That tells me that our military leadership is negligent right up to the Joe Biden, commander in chief level. And talking to sailors over the past year. It's clearly obvious to me and others that a number of George Floyd and other events surrounding uh, that the discussions in this country about racism, which go back years and years and years are still a painful part of our culture, and that talking about them understanding them is the best approach. Now. It's not. This is a chief naval operations. Admiral Mike Guilty. When does anybody ever stand up and say No, you're wrong. You're wrong. Well, we need a debate. No, no, no, You're wrong. Get the hell out of here. I'd say Get the f out of here. Get out of here. We're done with you. Your job is not to bring people a racial awareness. Your job is not to be uniting around racial harmony. Get out.

Thank you for this chance, A cz always to be on the show with you and Tony. It's good to have the opportunity to speak with you both and give us A chance to talk about Coben and perhaps give a bit of an update things. There are not going any better. Unfortunately, you know, I look at the numbers. I have an epidemiologist biostatistician that I employed. From the school of Public Health who crunches the numbers for us every day from morbidity and mortality totals both globally from the United States. And by way of comparison with Canada. A CZ many you have heard if you follow the news coverage today, we went over 25 million cases. Worldwide today, so we've broken a very significant threshold. We are continuing to progress in a very rapid rate we're averaging about. A million new cases somewhere between two and four days. Now, in terms of progression, the mortality has slowed down a little bit worldwide. We think that that has to do with the fact that most of the developed nations in the world are getting somewhat better a testing so the mortality is naturally going toe leg behind because we're not getting lonely, getting numbers. On new cases that have identified us positive in the national systems that are reporting into the W. H O on organizations like Johns Hopkins Hopkins University that are attracting the numbers internationally. But we don't think that's an indicator that the mortality figures are slowing down a CZ. Well, I think the biggest concern we have right now. Eyes. Several folds one. We're seeing a really, really serious like in cases again in central Europe and Western Europe. Especially in Spain. Italy and Germany some very significant protests over the weekend in Germany against the government on DH the population's perception that the government is moving towards another lock down phase, which would necessarily be Bad things. It's one of the strategies that has proven most effective and trying to reduce the spread of the disease. We're seeing a very significant increase in the Midwest in the United States if you followed Our discussions over the last couple of months. A cz well as news. You can tell that the disease predictably is moving geographically. We've gone from the North East, which was initially hit the worst. In the early spring after the outbreak started down to the southern tier states that were really bad for the past two months of the early somewhere at least, Florida, Texas, California, Arizona. And you talk on now. The new clusters and larger numbers are emerging out of the Midwest, which happened to be coincidental. We think at least right now with the Sturgis motorcycle rally that happened about 15 days ago now On now is exactly the time when we would start to see the case blooms the latent period between 14 and 21 days. I personally think the biggest issue that's coming up that we all need to be concerned about. Eyes the issue with our Children of attorney to schools. The evidence faces not good from the start. Colleges and universities have cake, particularly art in their early openings during the month of August, they have more than 25,000 cases across the United States. In more than 700 schools, many of them having clusters of 500 cases individually piece I think this is a very bad marker for what we can expect. It will happen. A CZ. We progress towards the large number of elementary and high schools Devil open across the United States. The next couple of days to two weeks or so. From now on, I am bird could turn on that front that we're we're moving a little too fast trying to get inspected school. Counterpart was on last week and she was talking about How this is How this this virus this disease is affecting Children. And very, very, uh, serious ways. Um Could you talk about that? Just briefly. Yeah, It's one of the things that you know, Theis use that I've talked about before Aziz related to novel viruses is, unfortunately, we don't know a lot about them. Show. Every new thing that happens is literally a new marker on what our scientists and help your community has to be watching out for. In terms of not only new symptoms and new syndromes that are associated with the virus, but also ships in population. Demographics sort of being impacted on everybody knows early on the biggest actress population. It was. Those who were 65 older with pre existing co morbidity is especially those related to pulmonary conditions on we stayed pretty static with that throughout the spring. It is summer came around. Our first wave of concern was with the condition called Emsis System, Inflammatory System syndrome that we started to see in pediatric populations as young as two. On. We had some associate ID mortality with actual human doctors for merely scratching your head about. You know what this thing has developed from? Thie populations. It was impacting Children on how to treat the symptoms. Some antibiotic earpiece shut early promise, especially with drug called random, severe. Recent medical research information is showing it may not be as effective as they brought. In any case. We're seeing a shift this, Connie probably noted. In the West plant on the show, where younger and younger populations are showing a very, very significant increase in war ability that his illness From the regime's probably more worrisome is that we believe now through research that kids are becoming bigger carriers there showing greater Viral loads in the nasal pharyngeal passageways. That's the back of the nose and throat where the virus kind of parks that they're able to express. Tio. People bury themselves Aaron asymptomatic phases and infect other people who maybe at more risk. So this is a new developing trend. That we're seeing and what it be coincidental to the beginning of the school year..

"Podcasts there is you on Spotify and iTunes Twitter at the improv in at the improv show former FDA director Dr Scott Gottlieb was on face the nation yesterday he had this to say about China the World Health Organization when pressed by Margaret Brennan as to whether or not to go to procreate to talk about the funding the WHL with president trump has you know in the midst of a pandemic the president raised a lot of valid concerns China was not truthful with the world at the outset of this had been more truthful with the world which would have enabled them to be more truthful with themselves they might have actually been able to contain this entirely and there is some growing evidence to suggest that as late as January twenty if they were still saying that there is no human to human transmission in the W. H. O. is validating those claims on January fourteenth sort of enabling the obfuscation from China I think going forward the W. H. O. needs to commit to an after action report that specifically examines what China did or didn't tell the world and how that stymied the global responses I also think they need to embrace Taiwan's role in the global health community and allow them to attend the world health assembly right now they froze in China at the WTO has that sort of the behest of China and that's hampered the global response because China has been a very important partner give me just one more anecdote China didn't share the viral strains and the WHO's should have made them do that how they share those early on we could develop the diagnostic test earlier validated earlier it's such an important example he gives at the end about not sharing the viral strains a diagnostic test could have been developed earlier so you want to talk about the problems that America had with testing and it's a legitimate topic of conversation but I mean let's start at the source here if you want to play the what would have happened if what could have happened if game then once you go all the way back to China rather than just limiting yourself to February and the C. EDC slash FDA's bungling of testing in America well that is the topic of a lot of offense and a lot of consideration right now in terms of exactly how do you do that what are some options available we've talked to John you over at UC Berkeley he had a piece with some suggestions and others have as well and I bet lieutenant colonel Jim Carafano has some suggestions he's the vice president Catherine Shelby Cullom Davis institute for International Studies at the heritage foundation is also the author of books including wiki at war and private sector public wars Jim thanks for joining us appreciate it you know I really appreciate about your summary there which is so important is there's so much Monday morning quarterbacking going on now and so much of it is highly partisan and it's done by it's simply not a hearing to the time line they simply assume information that they have now that they just assume that readers will believe that the administration had in February January which just isn't true when you hit on the key markers there until you actually have the virus in hand you can't develop an effective tested so much of the early casting people suburban else's testing around the world but those testing title high degree of false positive because they weren't good tasks in until we actually had the information they had to create that yes in addition with our own structure projects together we really couldn't well testing out the point about the Chinese long about transmission that was so crucial because that really pushed really even starting an effective response in a separate people had no idea I had no idea I was briefly middle my leadership at heritage and I can't say well least we know the trick you know the image in the transmission is not easy that's the saving graces disease so far and that was simply not true and so thinking about that this larger question of how do we make China pay for what they did and I don't think it's just you know in one way but some of the things under consideration everything from the funding the WHL in delegitimizing that organization to seizing or freezing assets of companies nationals to putting a new layer of vetting of the scions of Chinese communist leaders who they want to send to go to college or university in this country lot of the cell a lot of ideas a foot beyond regular John your honor the lawyer can talk to the legal stuff I would say one thing we can absolutely count on here is a much higher level of what's called reciprocity so whether it's journalists are how companies are treated their visas or foreign students or anything else we still despite being tough on China have much more liberal policies towards China than China has worked out so absolutely whether it's sharing information with the with the World Health Organization or students or anything else expect the US to get much much much tougher on we are going to treat you China like you she does I thought the FDA commissioner's comments on the W. H. our exactly right you have to start with the manning accountability and transparency and go from there and we do have a pretty big sort of Damocles hanging over their heads we are the world's largest contributor WHL and the front of the withdrawal of US funding would be pretty devastating what's the state of play in the military after that flap that involves the captain on the of Roosevelt who was deposed and then the secretary of the navy one after because of his intemperate comments on dak according to reports and trump suggesting openly that he thought that was an inappropriate language and so on and so forth not to mention them and most importantly the a number of sailors who've been infected with cove in nineteen where are we the with the military chain of command the belief that to our military men and women are being properly looked after yeah it is kind of like hamlet where everybody's a bad guy here so the surgery maybe was relieved I think appropriately he made very injudicious remarks before the crew which were or not what a professional would do so we have a new acting secretary of the navy and as I think because we have a nomination search her name is still pending so as I understand right now the acting secretary navy chief naval operations are kind of reviewing the whole process of what happens in making a determination what's appropriate so you know about twenty five years in military leaders the best thing is to keep this in the chain of command hello and hope that all the chain of command responsible and and the solicitor ours first the crew does understand if you take care of things in Guam speaking of the military in a different sense the National Guard National Guard has been scrambled in a number of states to do a number of different things so early on it was to provide support for the medical response and that states that saw the earliest iterations of the virus like Washington state California more recently it's been to act as a I don't know election judges in Wisconsin in last week's primary wit with respect to the National Guard being called up and just sort of the military presence in civilian life has anything you seen concerned you particularly no you have to remember the National Guard is us I mean these are right people there in the National Guard are you know our neighbors and our friends and you know what they are copper garbage collector next week with the uniformed military we are citizens are just a part of our community we have a long standing tradition of deploying the U. S. military for disaster response people back to Katrina you have to remember virtually every one of those deployments National Guard are which under what something is called title thirty two and what that refers to the US along US code under which the authorities in which their mobile I start and under that title the federal government is paying their salary which is great the takes the burden of state local governments are trying to deliver spots but the National Guard is responsible for the state and local governments to the governor and they are what they can and cannot use is really determined by what the governor's statement according the law in the constitution the constitution states in their law and and typically we use the military for all kinds of things so being coworkers to delivering mail to helping out yeah the old age homes all those things it's it's appropriate use in military if there is things that look shady I haven't seen anything on it but I'm like check every news event all over the country it's at it's really the states that the governors in the adjutant generals were better responsible held accountable for what they what they're doing one more question the military because I remember when trump had a lot of the military man in his cabinet initially that was a sign that he was some sort of authoritarian and there was gonna be a military takeover of America now we have he have this task force response team which includes some members of the military playing key roles but that's not good enough for Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who wants some some military person to be designated as our and be the the point person for the coordinated response if from what you've seen from the task force is there any reason to add a nother chief to the pot to the org chart yes your of course we need more bureaucracy right now it helps right related more layers of bureaucracy always making it a look it is that is reflective of something that we I think talked about before a lot of the show which is much of the nation of the criticism is just partisan where for whatever the president's not four anymore will forward the president for we have to say well he's not doing exactly the way we do it's been a highly on help for me and I think that's a result in that the army of course is is is the uniform the literary person is in charge of the logistics chain use personal you have the the people in the unicorn health service which are our uniforms service in the United States and of course all the logistics of being done under trance coming year starcom which of course are going by generals he is lieutenant colonel Jim Carafano vice president Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis institute for International Studies at heritage foundation Jim thanks for joining us.

"The card that takes you there. What's in your? Wallet capital? One Bank USA. This is the John Batchelor. The navy? Our Washington DC for visitors. This is a tourist attraction. And then the center of it at what I'm told is the high point of the navy yard. There is a beautiful house a center hall building dating from the early nineteenth century. It is called the Tingey house, and I learned from a new book by Gordon Brown. The captain who burned his ships, captain Thomas. Tingey US navy seventeen fifty to eighteen twenty nine that the Tingey house today is where the chief of naval operations lives. Gordon? Congratulations and good evening. Do you? Do you make midshipmen memorize who Tingey is when you live in the the chief of naval operations is house. Is there some is there some a formula that goes on in order to discuss missed captain Tingey? I don't think so. But I do know that the the current CNO chief naval. Operations has a wife who immediately asked questions about the house and the historical department helped. I helped to get together a little brochure for wonderful because the Tingey house has a story and whopper of story. And Gordon lays out let's go to the crisis itself that is in the title, the captain new burns burned his ships. It's August twenty fourth eighteen fourteen about three PM in the afternoon. According to your a careful recitation here, Gordon, and captain common. Dan Tingey is at the navy yard. And he is facing the secretary of the navy Jones. What is the crisis? What do they have to decide that day? The crisis is relatively simple. The it was actually decided in the morning that that they were going to the American troops were going to face the British invaders north of Washington a town called Bladensburg. Everybody who could carry arms at that point, not everybody. But virtually everybody went up to Bladensburg to face down the bridge. Well, ten she was left behind with instruction. Who said if the Americans did not hold it Bladensburg that he was to destroy the navy yard because it had too many supplies that were value to the British gunpowder ship's cannon new name it. And it wasn't until three or four o'clock in the afternoon that word began to trickle back from Bladensburg, which is maybe some twenty miles north of the navy yard that the things had not gone all that. Well. Tingey kept putting off the decision. Putting it all putting it off putting it off because he didn't want to be accused of having burned all of these valuable supplies without due cause. And it wasn't until eight o'clock at night that one of his scouts was actually fired up on. And then that made the decision pretty obvious the British were within half a mile at this British were half a mile. They were up on Capitol Hill for anybody who knows Washington within a half a mile of the navy yard. And they clearly we're moving fast and Tingey had to put the place to fire and he had prepared the burning of the yard to eat set a fuse and had powder in the yard. I have according to your book on assembly of ships, Columbia ARGUS, the general green, the New York and Boston any of those first rate ships were they all there for repair, the general green, and and others were lying in the harbour. They were without baths, and we're old ships. That were probably not maybe even would. Never been repaired. The new ship was the Columbia, which is on the way. It was a frigate a good size frigate. I think a forty four gun and would have been a major capital ship. The ARGUS was a sloop of war and was doing it would it would have been a good ship. Put it that way for working in in shallow more shallow water. So these were major losses to the to the US navy when they were burned the Columbia would have been a sister ship of the other forty four gun frigates that were so ferocious during the war of eighteen twelve and and and the success, and the fact that he had to destroy column Columbia means we are deprived of its its successes. I mean, it would have been it's one of those ships like constitution, Chesapeake or United States. Our president could have had a story attached to it could have. Although I have to admit that by nineteen eighteen fourteen. The success of the American navy were bind them the British had succeeded in driving the navy mostly off the wall off the office, e oh, I want to celebrate. All those successes. You mentioned them, but they all happened in eighteen twelve they did. And they and they're famous for it. And here we are two hundred years later, which is why it's important to go over this because Gordon my education. Skip the bore eighteen twelve I am learning more now in my maturity than I ever had in American schools, and I wonder if it's been changed in the last forty years, whether they skip that also I think it has changed. I think people began to realize that the war of eighteen twelve turned us from a. Adolescent to adolescent powder. We suddenly realized that we have the ability to deal with major powers, and we developed a sense of self confidence. It obviously led to manifest destiny and everything else that happened twenty or thirty years later. So let's go back to the beginning of captain Tingey because he's born in Englishman, and he's born of modest circumstances and his father and older brother die of a disease. Is that correct? They died in London. We don't know why. But I would assume since that was deadly summer that they probably died if some some contagion cholera or otherwise theory is the youngest son in conditions that you'd have to say are hard scrabble. How does he make his way into the Royal Navy to begin with? That's not clear I see very little that he talked about in his previous life before he came to America and won a silver said, he got a commission somehow or other as midshipman by by serving as. As a servant to a senior officer on board ship that was that would qualify you three years at sea in that situation. Would qualify you to sit for the midshipmen exam. So he takes the exam. He becomes a midshipman. Right. But he hangs around as a midshipman a little bit too long. He was almost twenty when he decided to quit the Royal Navy, and as we've all learned from the Austrian matter in novels, you don't wanna be an old midshipmen because you become jokes and captains pass you around. And you're very bitter about your life. You wanna be a Lieutenant and he didn't make the leap, right, right? So now, we the scene changes to Saint Saint Croix in the latter part of the eighteenth century. What how did he wind up there? And how did that advance him was it marriage? No, it was it was the other way around. He was he went to Philadelphia when he quit. The Royal Navy got involved with a small Philadelphia firm that traded with the West Indies, obviously traded with the West Indies. As for a number of years, married to Philip met and married a Philadelphia girl there who happened to be staying with her sister. And that got him more connected with Philadelphia. But he was he was a by that time, a ship's captain, but of small shifts trading ships schooners and so on and it wasn't until he went back to Philadelphia sometime after the revolutionary war. I can't remember the exact date that he began to get connected with the major trading firms Tyson involved, this is seventeen eighty eight. Now, here's the life crisis that you lay out this is the captain new burned his ships. It's early on. He's he's a merchant sailing on a merchant ship for India. And that's a huge forge the harmony any challenges his captain Willett. What happens? Well, it's not entirely clear because I only have one side of the story, which is ten g's journal. But ten she claimed that that will it was jealous of him that. That will it was a bit of a drunk and that he recognized the Tingey was a good seaman and knew what he was doing and kept trying to push him down. Whereas Tingey who at that point was young probably fairly arrogant and thinking himself upwardly mobile kept taking command and will it didn't like it. And there was an incident which drove this all home at which point Tingey couldn't leave because they were halfway across the ocean. But he did leave when they reached Bombay Mr. ten she's about to join the US navy wishes itself inventing, everything, and I learned from Gordon's book that I mean, everything down to the spars down to didn't have physician have to make gunpowder because they were they were grabbing everything they could find an order to present themselves to the world. He's a successful merchant, captain. Why does he joined the US navy because he had good connections with the big merchant houses in Philadelphia? And when we went to war. War or semi war is is called the quasi war with France in seventeen ninety eight we had very few naval captains who were a Cup were comfortable on a worship and Tingey was and so he jumped from midshipman to captain in one leap, this is Adams administration. This is in the Adams administration. Yes. When we had a naval war with France. Now Thomas Jefferson's about to get elected president of the United States. Well, let's put it this way. It was a tie in Jefferson one thousand nine hundred and he takes over eighteen no one critical to understand Tingey is the battle as I read from you, Gordon between the Jefferson idea, which was a Brown. Water navy and the Tingey idea was a blue water navy where was Tingey in this. Well, Tingey was he? You say he was good public servant. He knew that his president. And his secretary of the navy were had decided that they would have a coastal defence navy. He was obviously not in that. Not that not in there. Camp. And he wrote it he was asked to write a paper in defensive coastal defence navy. His paper is so lukewarm that you can only read between the lines that he didn't approve, but he on the on the other hand he didn't step out and say, no, he said all. The captain of burned his ships, captain Thomas Tingey United States navy seventeen fifty to eighteen twenty nine Gordon Brown's the author when we come back the first commandant of the navy yard, which is the United States..
