Today We Celebrate Veterans Day
"To listen to this proclamation that Dwight Eisenhower when he was president sent to Harvey hegle. He was the administrator of veterans, the fires, designated him as the chairman of the national veterans national fetchers day National Committee. He said, I have today signed a proclamation calling upon all citizens of our citizens to observe Thursday, November 11th. 1950 fours Veterans Day. It is my earnest hope that all veterans, their organizations, the entire citizens citizenry will join hands to ensure proper and widespread observance of this day. With the thought that it will be the most helpful to coordinate the planning, I'm suggesting the formation of Veterans Day national Veterans Day National Committee in view of your great personal interest as well as your official responsibilities. I have designated you to serve as chairman. You may include the committee membership such persons as you deem to select and requesting that all departments communicate this. And he said, I have every confidence that our nation will respond wholeheartedly in the appropriate observance of Veterans Day 1954. Interesting that the former general had that kind of respect and wanted it to be very well known that Veterans Day was something to be proud of and that is really where veterans that comes from. And what does that mean? I mean, somebody who serves somebody who said, okay, and it's not just, and I hear this comment that they said, well, I wasn't. I didn't go overseas. Okay, that's great. Some other thankfully, most who serve a many times in our armed forces never had to deploy in harm's way. They just didn't. Because either we would not at war or the conditions did not see fit for their job or their units to actually have to be deployed. But they started a very valuable role here on the home front or wherever they were stationed, even across the world.
Is Democracy Now Fascism? Lord Conrad Black Weighs In
"On the right win in 2022 in November next month, to me, democracy looks like it's over in America, fascism is here to stay. And if they lose, we get maybe another insurrection, domestic terrorism, a Civil War God forbid. Maddie Hassan MSNBC with a strange definition of fascism if the Republicans win the election, then fascism has arrived. I guess the majority picking who should be in Congress is Marie Hussain's definition of fascism. I know somebody who will have a very different one. Presidential historian former media mogul, financier, judicial reform advocate, and just an all around good friend of the show, lord Conrad black, welcome back to America first. Thanks, Sebastian. I'm delighted to come back and listen to such rubbish. I mean, what that man said. I mean, this is the representative of one of the leading networks. Yes. Democracy is fascism. Now, in fact, fascism as those of you who are listening to are interested are aware was in fact a bunch of street bullies wearing black shirts bearing symbolically the faces as symbol of the authority of the Roman Republic, the Caesars and Julius Caesar anyway. And marching upon Rome and installing an authoritarian government, apart from that Mussolini, he was essentially just one of history's more spectacular scoundrels, though an able man in many ways. I made it up as he went along, but he fell under the spell of Hitler and ended up being shot by communists and hung upside down a gas station. That's fascism. With his girlfriend, hung upside down. And how you equate that to the Republicans winning an election, which happened when Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan, for example, were elected. How you equate that to the Republicans winning an election. I think that's something of psychiatrists and people who deal with severely deranged people would have to have to survey. But let's

Officials said Sunday that most of Jackson, Mississippi should have running water, although residents are still advised not to drink straight from the tap, the city remains under a boiled water notice. AP correspondent Michael Goldberg reporting from Jackson says the water issues there have not happened overnight. Jackson has been under a boil water notice for over a month now. And it's been under boil water notices in the past. Many residents simply don't trust the tap water at all and have been sort of out of the practice of drinking it for many years. But the issue is certainly been kicked into high gear over the past few days as a result of just a complete lack of water pressure. While President Biden has declared a statewide emergency, which will provide funds to help fix the water system, Jackson's mayor said it could take as much as a $1 billion for that fix. AP news.

Understanding the Importants of Taiwan
"I have a couple of questions for you because I'm not an expert on foreign policy and it's just doesn't sound right when president Joe Biden goes out and says he's going to defend Taiwan militarily. It seems inconsistent with what we would normally do. Obviously we would help fund them and their military action, but I want you to explain it to the audience because is this a bad thing that President Biden said this or is he right on track with his comments? Yeah, it's a great question. And so I was in the military for 25 years. And after that, I've been doing foreign policy national security heritage for almost 20 years. And been all over the world, talk to people all over the world in the Taiwan before. So here's the reality. This is the cold reality. And this is actually been true since the 1950s. Since Dwight Eisenhower was the president of the United States. The reality is the United States would fight to keep China from taking over Taiwan. And here's why. Taiwan is the key island in what's called the first island chain. If the Chinese government controlled everything from Taiwan down to the South China seas, essentially they could deny the United States access to the entire Asian continent.

"Largest military in the world I am not making this up And this actually is quite post World War II In fact it was 1959 when Dwight Eisenhower wanted to bring American culture to the citizens of the Soviet Union to show them the benefits of capitalism Well you can imagine khrushchev wasn't that thrilled about that benefits of capitalism part Now to showcase their ideologies the government arranged for the American national exhibition in Moscow And they sent Richard Nixon the vice president at the time to attend the opening And it was not good Of all the PR spokesman you want to send Richard Nixon is probably not high on your list but over he went and he and khrushchev got into an argument over capitalism versus communism Their conversation got so heated that one of the companies in that American national exhibition Pepsi Cola the vice president of Pepsi was there He intervened He offered the Soviet leader a cup of his delicious beverage and khrushchev drank it Now what's interesting is Chris shiff really liked it And so years later the Soviet Union wanted to strike a deal with the Pepsi company to bring products to their country permanently There was the issue though of how are they going to pay for that Because the Russian currency behind the Soviet Union was not exactly revered at that time or trusted on any level And so what they did was a barter deal Russia gave Pepsi vodka Yes in equal dollar amounts for the Pepsi and was a deal that was extended to the 1980s but as the deal came to a close Russia wanted to renew and at this point vodka wasn't going to cut it Now we're talking about $3 billion worth of Pepsi here So Russia did something else You won't believe it They traded Pepsi a fleet of submarines and boats Yeah 17 submarines a cruiser a frigate and a destroyer That's right And what they got in return was $3 billion worth of Pepsi Yes Russia loves its Pepsi Now for a brief period of time that caused Pepsi to become the 6th most powerful military in the world What they did if you're wondering because what would you do that with that stuff Yeah right Sell a couple of them to west Edmonton mall Apart from there it used to be a display in which I mention them all with a submarine Actually two of them which was more than the Canadian navy head at the time But I digress What they did in exchange was they sold it to Sweden not for wartime activities whatsoever for scrap recycling So that was that was the deal But World War II certainly was the scene of the great Cola wars And it had started long before that of course the 1800s and you know in Atlanta was a 1886 Coca-Cola came It wasn't interesting well what was interesting I should say is that Pepsi actually predated it not by name But it became Pepsi Cola in 1898 So Coke was first Pepsi was second by any anybody's reckoning And that's accepted And they both had Cola in their names and that was accepted and they had logos that looked reasonably similar and that was accepted And here comes World War II Now Coke was already internationally popular And they claimed to be the original Cola Their slogan in 1942 was the only thing like Coca-Cola is Coca-Cola itself And they pledge that every soldier in the field would be able to buy Coke for a nickel regardless of what it costs the company And Coke made good on that promise in 1943 when Dwight Eisenhower urgently requested the company ship materials and equipment for ten bottling plans to be built overseas Included in that request was 3 million filled bottles of Coca-Cola And so within 6 months of that that deal they flew over to Algiers in North Africa and opened the first Coca-Cola plant there and it was ultimately 64 bottling plants were eventually shipped abroad during the war And the plants were located as close as possible to the theater you know European and Pacific theaters Well they had a 150 technical observers who were Coca-Cola employees brought into serve Coke to every GI wherever they happened to be And the employee is dressed in fatigues and all that kind of stuff Well obviously this was huge in World War II and Coca-Cola was a welcome morale booster And on the home front Coke continued to produce beverage for consumers Now what's interesting about that that's no small thing because sugar was being rationed Well and this was going to be bad for Pepsi but I'll get by operating a loading plant in Alabama and distributing Coke to troops for 5 cents a bottle The Coca-Cola Company was excluded from sugar rationing And so of course you'd say well they really had the one up And to a great degree of course they did And they were always finding ways to integrate Coca-Cola into everything Whether it was Merry Christmas or World War II you name it But here's Pepsi Now before the war Coke and Pepsi both sold the 6.5 ounce bottles of Cola for 5 cents So in 1934 when The Great Depression was really full tilt Pepsi began to sell a 12 ounce bottle for 5 cents And the jingle this will show that I'm long of tooth but you might remember it Pepsi Cola hits the spot 12 full ounces That's a lot twice as much for a nickel to Pepsi Cola the drink for you And yeah Pepsi Cola hits the spot was the slogan into the 50s And so there are 12 ounce bottle increased its popularity but of course during the war they couldn't do much And the problem again sugar rationing so what Pepsi had to do was go to Mexico to get sugar for beverage production And they were just in no position to penetrate the armed forces in the same way But of course as I say they sure got the jump on Coke in Russia I have earthly no earthly idea how much Coca-Cola is consumed in Russia if any But I know that Pepsi is a big faith So that's the great that's the great Cola wars Oh I should mention by the way you're probably thinking of this already There was a third Don't forget royal crown Cola And that actually was a product of knee high You remember knee high grape nehi orange all that stuff And I've been around since the early 1900s but around 1934 knee high came up with royal crown called RC Cola And it was the first Cola to launch a blind taste test I don't know where they got these people but RC Cola won the taste test Yeah which I find hard to believe having consumed enough of it But they got a lot of people on board to promote it being Crosby Shirley Temple you name it And that started the lawsuits Coke wanted to sue knee high for the use of Cola And that was in the courts for a while Ultimately knee high one in 1944 because Cola was not of course a proper noun so to speak But the bottom line was that whether it was Coke Pepsi or RC Cola in the 1940s there was a huge amount of it consumed By the late 50s RC Cola just really was on the Wayne but they were the first company to create a diet soda You'll remember if you do oh God it was awful Diet right Cola But I was the first and of course led to everything else And so I guess the Cola wars continued to this day And then we could go on to all the theories of new cope and all that but I'll leave that aside But so that's the great coal.

"Now, it's interesting that that was the very first president he was concerned about where we were in the world. He was concerned about our sort of collective American conscience, if he would. And he was concerned about the workings of government as a force in the lives of everyday folks. I mean, he was a business person. He was a military leader. He was a politician from the fact that he served in these political roles and his president, but he was the end of the day. He was very concerned about how government interacted with the liberties and freedoms of the people in America. This then almost now, to transition from that one, which I think gave, again, the interesting correlation to where we are today into the discussion that we're going to have today on part two of these lessons from the past. And that is the final speech if you would, our final presidential address by Dwight Eisenhower. Eisenhower, of course, was the 34th president of the United States. He served from 53 to 61. Sort of the capstone of his career, you know, most do knowing his president, but most know him again as he is being the supreme ally commander in Europe at the end of World War II and leading the offensive of all of our allies against the axis forces and Hitler and Nazi Germany. These all playing together for this became his final speech and there's a lot written about Eisenhower and I would encourage you just to the wood of Washington. If you want to know more about the man themselves, you want to know about how they grow up how they came about, I would encourage you to read their several books out there to go read about them because they're fascinating in their where they came from and how they got there. In fact, it's a really interesting correlation between sort of three presidents in a row and this is an extra for you podcast listeners today. For listening, you know, if you look at the middle of the century in the United States during the came out of the FDR presidency coming out of the great depression moving into World War II, you had a person who was in essence grown for politics. He was groomed in many ways and his family from his cousin to everybody to be a politician to be a leader of governor or president. That's what FDR Franklin Roosevelt was sort of groomed to be. And then you have the one who became president one of the biographies of his accidental president. Harry Truman was one who was not groomed. He came from very humble backgrounds. He came from a very working class middle of the country background and Missouri to know to the presidency. And took those took that office very seriously because of where he came from and in the desire to serve the country. And then you transition to another midwesterner in Eisenhower. So in the middle of our time frame there in which we went through The Great Depression World War II into what began the use of the atomic bomb, the use of the beginning of the Cold War. And then the space race toward the end of Eisenhower's term that was beginning, again, this buildup of nuclear power, this buildup of military power through Eisenhower's administration and even the beginnings of what we say we see the battle of Korea. And then we see the start of what would be known is from our perspective later in Eisenhower's administration owning the candidates and then Johnson's is the Vietnam War. Interesting that these are the ones that the country had chosen to lead us at this time. So as we look at this, just to think about, you know, you know, where Eisenhower really came from was very a large family mostly. He was Pennsylvania Dutch when he there, they raised and Abilene Kansas. He did go to West Point during World War I. He served he was denied a request to serve in Europe and said he commanded a unit that trained tank battalions, he continued. He was one of the few. Now this is something you might be something you didn't know. Up until World War II. The professional military as we know it was very different than how we see it today in which you have a larger group making careers and our military starting and going through 20, 25, 30 years making military. Their main career and a lot. Very few comparatively in our military did that from World War I to World War II. In fact, even before World War I, a lot of our army was raised at the time. You had certain individuals smaller group of cadre if you would, who raised up and kept the military machinery as it was like going, but as far as a mass infusion of troops, we didn't, that was not something that was there for permanency. In the time you had the National Guard, you had it in other areas, but as far as the military grouping as we know it today, like I serve in today, is not what was prevalent before World War II..

"What's on your mind today Hey Tom this isn't a rhetorical question I'm really wanting to scratch your brain Have conservatives ever been on the right side of history because I've been thinking about it and conservatives those who don't want anything to change and don't want any kind of progress into something Have in my best I can recall then against every positive change in America from the revolution up to more healthcare for all In my lifetime alone I saw conservatives freaking out about integration and busing in Boston and women in the workforce And of course anti gay stuff anti school lunch programs And I really can't think of anything when conservatives have been on the side of equality or making life better for people in America This isn't a Republican versus Democrat thing because both of those parties have changed elastically over the decades So have conservatives ever been on the right side of history And listen to your answer off air That's a great question Sean I'm trying to think I mean you know I was going to say well you know Dwight Eisenhower was okay but he wasn't a conservative He was a fairly liberal Republican There were a lot of them back then I think your point is well made What that would really mean though is that those people that we had to redefine the word conservative If you look at a dictionary under the word conservative what you will find is that it is the definition of it is a political position that is in favor of progress but in careful incremental gradual steps And I think that we need to redefine the political context for the word conservative to mean instead in favor of the status of maintaining the status quo or even reversing the status quo to a previous status quo Which would make them not conservatives but reactionaries The reacting against progress and they want to go back to what used to be and I think that that's very much what we are seeing in the American political scene right now is reactionaries You're seeing people who want to go back to the back to the days when schools were not integrated when communities were not integrated when the workplace protections of people across the spectrum were not in place when pollution protections You know it just goes on and on and on right You just go through the list So I would say that the definition of conservative is what's lacking For example the conservatives who didn't want to fight the revolution and you're absolutely right There was about a third of Americans who were in favor of the revolution about a third who were opposed Those who were opposed call themselves conservatives And there was about a third who just were like yeah whichever one And that's we were able to swing that middle third and that's how we won the revolution But Jimmy Carter actually wrote a novel that kind of highlights all this stuff But I would say that they weren't so much in favor of small gradual incremental changes They were in favor of the British aristocracy of leaving things the way they were because most of the conservatives of that era of the 1770s had a huge financial interests tied in with Great Britain And so what you see is that more often than not people who call themselves conservatives are actually they're either playing out racial interests or financial interests So I think you're probably right There's probably not a whole lot of conservatives that were on the right side of history Gary and Alpharetta Georgia Gary what's on your mind today Hello Tom Hartman thank you I want to close the quote that before I do that I got to do my I guess by Friday rant by if I.
Why Does Mark Milley Have More Medals Than Dwight D. Eisenhower?
"Mark milley who is a traitor to the united states and should be court-martialed but he won't be he will be promoted. Given book deals treated very seriously look at how many medals he has. When i play this on the livestream on rumbled dot com. Dwight eisenhower the greatest. One of the greatest generals in american history had like two medals in one world war two alongside the sacrifice the blood and and the commitment of so many heroes. What does mark milley ever done as useful overseeing the destruction of the greatest military in the history of the planet play cut thirty-three. It is clear it is obvious. The worn afghantistan did not end the terms. We wanted with the taliban now in power in kabul and we must remember that the taliban was and remains a terrorist organization and they still have not broken ties with al qaeda. I have no illusions who we are dealing with. It remains to be seen whether or not the taliban can consolidate power or if the country were further fracture into civil war. So why did you give them weapons. Then so why did you give them. Blackhawk helicopters mark. Milley mind. You give them rifles. Why did you give them grenades. Why did you give them eighty five billion dollars of our best weapons if they're an enemy and make no mistake. I know who they are. Why did you work with the taliban toback channel to try to all of a sudden give up bomber base

"I just won't eat until dinner and the problem is my dinner sometimes their biblical anything i can reach but yes it's a. I think a habit that works for me to change suddenly could hurt me. Yeah so you never break your fast. They're not until dinner every night. I mean every once in a while. If i'm at a business lunch or seventy eight but okay okay. That's actually very admirable very admirable. I can't fast more than eight hours. And that's when i'm sleeping so okay. So i want to talk about the role of curiosity and growth in your leadership. Why do you think it's important for leaders to be both curious and growth minded. Yeah i'm gonna put it in my personal experience. Which is that is a soldier. The first thing about curiosity is you need to know what's going on. If you start with an assumption that i figured out in warfare you are almost always incorrect and when you are surprised that's a bad bad thing and so the best leaders have this constant curiosity not just about what the enemies doing the situation but about your own organization. How's it operating. What are people thinking. And so the best commanders i've ever seen. They're just questioned machines and they're constantly being the organization on how they can best get information back in control everyb- awry inform everyone. The growth part also is what worked yesterday almost never works next week. Why is that well because things change and that's very upsetting to. I was trained as a civil engineer. So the idea that the answer changes is deeply upsetting to to should always equal for that. That's exactly five that and but that's not the way it is what happens is warfare changes situations change so if you go in with what napoleon did or what. Dwight eisenhower did with this historical solution. It's going to be incorrect for the context. In which you're in so you need to be curious enough to understand. The context adaptable enough to figure out what works years ago. I was taught if it's stupid and it works. it ain't stupid. Can you say that again. And so that idea of understanding that you need to grow into something different. All the time is critical. You have redefined leadership and one of your most recent books called leaders. You revised how you define leadership. Why did you do that. And what is your definition of leadership. It's great when if you look up. Leadership definitions like two hundred sixty of them so you pick whatever you want. But i grew up with the great woman a great man theory. And that's the idea that there are certain number of people in our society who sort of been history to them. We obey statues to them. We named things after we. We define periods in our history. What happens though is if you get closer to those people. They're invariably human. They've got foibles. They've they make mistakes. They're not perfect and that's disappointing to us. Sometimes we decide now. We love that person and now we find out something about and we. We hate that person. We gotta get back into something realistic. Because they are people. I went through that journey with robert e lee. Who had been my hero but but now what i think is the reality is leadership is not a thing you have. You aren't born with it. Nobody gives you a pala or leadership to carry around in your pockets. It's this almost interaction between leaders and the people that they lead and followers may a pejorative word might be partners and then the context of the moment and the interaction of those three factors produce whether it's effective. It's one of the reasons why it's very hard to take a successful leader from one situation. Pick them up in parachute him in another and expect the same kind of how come if you do that with. Ceo's statistically you find you get a worse outcome than if you promote from inside the company. And i know that's true with soldiers and whatnot so it i think it's the complexity of leadership that fascinates me now the fact it says multiple factors. Yeah i'm so excited to really dig into and see how these lessons that you learned in the military space can really transfer to the civilian space and the business space but you're person of growth. You're a self proclaimed introvert. Which i find hard to believe considering what you've done for so long and the fact that you're on stage and you're speaking in front.

I don't know what his numbers were. Bay views feed made mistakes. But even with its with the immediate support. He's gotten the last few weeks the american people have caught on and his numbers are dropping. I think if the democrats the people are contributing money to doing product potty it's more to control their losses and any type of optimism. They are desperately fearful of going to happen at the ballot box. Maybe somewhat this year but especially next year. We both have democratic friends without mentioning names. What are they saying to you once. Spoken to a very concerned One about the policy. Second way to be carried out. Also just the appearance of joe. Biden's giving that that confused look on his face the fact that he seems like somebody else's telling him what to do and even says my staff is told me i can't do this. My staff is told me. I have to do this with my staff told me. This is the list of names report. I'm supposed to call out. I mean this is not a leading you. Anyone telling those. Donald trump or dwight eisenhower and johnson franklin roosevelt. Or i mean any president. Barack obama bill clinton that staff is telling them what they have to do.

And i i could certainly dealt with ed koch with joe lieberman with joe mansion. I think that. If he's elected that eric adams can do a fine job as mayor of new york. So this is not a partisanship. It's really a combination of aggressive philosophy and the president seems not to be in charge.

Afghanistan Withdrawal: Could Chaos Have Been Avoided?
"A follow up to our show with john measham last week now in the seven years of presenting these program on radio national of not received such enthusiastically positive feedback from listeners. As id to last week's episode when professor michel defended the us withdrawal from afghanistan. Well that many of you were persuaded by me. Shamas argument you still wanted whether the baden administrations evacuation plans could have been handled a lot. Better after all the us withdrawal. Well it's been widely seen as a humiliation and embarrassment a betrayal and a disaster. So was there a way to avoid a messy exit from afghanistan. It's a good question which put to join me shama. This week tom. My view is that there was no way to avoid a messy exit. It didn't matter whether donald trump was in charge or dwight eisenhower. Had come back from the dead and been put in charge. It just wouldn't have mattered. It would have been messy. Under any circumstances hell may explain why the key starting point is to recognize that. We're talking about moving. Huge numbers of people out of afghanistan very quickly We moved as it is a one hundred twenty two thousand people in fifteen days and their estimates that there were another six hundred thousand afghanis who wanted to get out and most of them had worked with us in one capacity or another so. We're talking about huge numbers. Now whenever you move huge numbers quickly you have to do. Two things. one is extensive. Planning it has to be extensive on the ground planning and number two at the first sign that there's real trouble at the first sign that the afghan army is collapsing. You have to head for the exits. Those are two necessary conditions so the argument goes to make this work

Sometimes it's uncle sam just kind of blowing in to his office and not being like and not being literal person. Who is like embodying uncle sam at that moment.

They're both part of the same kind of group. We'll start with this one. We'll start with seventy two with joe biden where he said you're military advisers. Did not tell you that we should keep two thousand five hundred troops. Joe biden says no. No one said that to me that i can recall overplaying memory games now joe biden is so what is your name. How long have you been president. Who is your child very basic questions. Ono generals made that recommendation even mark milley. Who is the male military version of robin dangelo. Even said himself that he made that recommendation. Play cut seventy two whole hell of a lot more troops. Your top military advisers warned against join on this time line. They wanted you to keep about twenty five hundred or no they didn't it was split. That wasn't true. I wasn't true so no no one told. Your military visors not tell you know we should just keep twenty five hundred troops. It's been a stable situation for the last several years we can do that. We can continue to do that. No no one said that to me that i can recall that i can recall even though that was said to him according to mark milley. Let me. Just say a side note. You look at mark million lloyd austin. I don't think either of them could pass a basic training test. Overweight generals tend not do. Well can we. Can we bring back. Georgia's patton douglas mccarthur. Dwight eisenhower real men.

Well i should say that. I got to others but i didn't do anything for other two while. Mosaic was an an air medal. Which for some reason they gave you finished twenty five missions. That was what they did. When group i i was formed. They flew twenty five missions. Any group that any planes that could finish twenty five missions got a medal so i got a medal for finishing twenty five missions and then the third medal i got because it was a it was a european European i think was what they call it metal so i wound up what. I left the air force with three medals and their home. I hide them. Because i don't want by sunset. Get at them. They all three of the won all three medals. So i have to hide the three battles.

There were five letters s. h. a. t. f. and for a long time i never knew what goes letters stood for until i kept asking people and somebody new. They stood for supreme cream headquarters. Allied expeditionary force now there were five generals up there and they planned every mission. There were two french and two british and we had one general. There named dwight eisenhower and they voted him to be in charge of the of the of the meetings there and they planned every mission. They told us went to go now in order to understand why they know so much. I have to go back in time. September third nineteen thirty nine. What happens in the nervous started up. Now when world war two started germany invaded poland. The british did something. That was truly spectacular. They sent three hundred spies to germany. Every spy spoke perfect german. They were told to walk the streets. Learn what they could every day and then around midnight sent the information to the to the eighth air force in in england so every day sometimes close to midnight but usually about eleven thirty these spies would gather up all their information and send it to the eighth air force. They would learn for example very important thing for us if the germans moved there. Any aircraft guns we. We know that because if we did know that we would fly around a gun that we thought we were going around but they moved the gun. Then you're could be down so that was an important thing that we learned every day whether the germans had moved in aircraft guns i will say this and i think everybody will agree..

The democratic party has become significantly less racist over time. I accept your nomination but the democratic party becoming less racist over time does not imply that the republican party has become more racist overtime. It also happens to be true that the democratic party started to gain black votes long before the end of jim crow. If you look at black voter share inside the democratic party that really began to shift in the era of fdr with government benefits being granted on a greater level to black americans.

"Gosh that sounds waterfall ish. That sounds sounds so great. Go back to a system. That makes sense sorry. Well it's it you know. I shouldn't coming for medical that's unavoidable. It's true well it. It is and although i don't want to Leave anybody with the impression that you know you start off with perfect bride requirements specifications. You can you know. Do a reasonable job at the beginning You know better than probably most people do From what i've seen in practice element but you know things will evolve as as the system moves forward as development and sword. It's funny in your book. As i discovered it i started highlighting things and not much of a highlighter. As far as book goes book scout but stuff just like made sense and it made sense in ways that i could explain to other people. One of the things you had was A quote from a general. Dwight eisenhower plans are worthless. But planning is everything. Then you went on to say. While specific plans are inevitably broken by the end of the first week of work. Spending substantial time and effort in the planning process is indispensable. Could you talk a little bit more about that. Sure yeah so. I think there's a few reasons why you put together a project plan one very important. Reason is for estimation projects. Programming projects are notoriously You know they tend to be over. Budget sometimes by a lot and they tend to be delayed sometimes by a lot A lot of the reason for that is just a lack of understanding what the project actually involved so by putting a lot of time into building a detailed project plan. Even though a lot of your details might be wrong. You're going to catch a lot of things that you wouldn't sorta take into account if you're doing things off the top of your head you know so like let's say you're talking about Let's say board spin electronics doing new. Pc board You might forget you know when you're you know charges estimating how long it's gonna take to do newborn spend than you might think about. Well the layout should take this long and you know then we build it and give it a week to test but you know you're not thinking about maybe -aug. We got a you know Make sure we have a couple rounder reviews of the board before we send it off to the vendor and those things need to be scheduled with people you people can't just pop out of their cubes and do review when when you want them to do review. Not if you wanna do good review you have to take into account You know the initial board bring up and what happens if it turns out that. There's there's a problem the board you need to do. Some cuts jumpers and things like that so as you walk through the process in detail. You'll pick up a lot of issues you know suddenly realize that gee it's gonna take twice as long as my gut told me it was going to take when you call these things together. So that's important. The other thing that's important is to understand. Dependencies touched on that a little bit but You know there. Different project parts of the project. They could be dependent on other parts. And if you're not thinking about what those dependencies are then. You could get very surprised when something's some part of the project ready to go forward but you know let's say the electronics are You know done but the software is not caught up yet doesn't have certain milestones met yet. So you need to understand what those things are that you're dependent on that the different parts of the project or depended on in order to Know for things to proceed At at the fastest possible rate Another thing that you can do during planning to understand what. What are the signs that i'm succeeding or failing. So you can you could take about you. Know how do i show myself. And everybody on the project that that things are progressing the way we want them to progress or conversely. If if they're not we can. We can flag things one of the problem. We have to attend to it. So that's kind. Of what i mean by planning it. Will you know the the best way plans will break quickly. But you know you'll at least have a good shot at a reasonable plan and as time goes on you know you. Keep your project up-to-date and You know it'll give you an idea of what's going to happen moving forward but these do take time. I mean ideally. They save time in the end but so many times. I hear from people. Oh that's writing a requirement. Spec is just too much effort and then watch change it every week. We won't get anything done most benalla time dorking with the documents. How can i tell them. no maybe if write a good document and just update at once a month will all be making the same project How do i. How do i get people to pay me to do the right engineering instead of. Just slamming altogether. That's a very. It's a very valid point. I think that sort of you know both sides have a good point right. I think that Engineers you know doers. That people were building the system. Don't want to spend time dealing with you. Know filling out forms and planning and things like that Particularly not once during the thick of it and it's also difficult it can be difficult for organizations to accept that that kind of planning You know spending money on that particularly people put this. The the people who are nontechnical are not are not necessay. Nontechnical people They wanna see engineers doing engineering very often. And not you know planning And i don't actually have a great answer to that other than to pick good companies to work for So in my experience the company culture is very difficult to change and in very good company so the very good companies that i've worked for or with There's there's a very good understanding of how important this process is You know in fact. I'll tell you a little story One i remember one time is working for a company. We're doing Well company about one hundred hundred fifty designers and engineers doing contract. Development behalf of our work was contract. medical device development and one of the large medical device makers very very good While known maker they needed some work on they needed a new device develop next generation of some device and they sort of did a bake off and they started with about ten companies and they got initial quotes from those companies ours was one of them and i was I co led the effort to quote for them so we made it through that first round they pick the three ones. I liked the best and then they asked for know very detailed quote so we gave them a detailed quote and I got a call. And the the person who was leading effort and their size that we'd come over and talk with you guys but you're quote sure of course so it came over and they started by saying you guys were the most expensive by far of the the bids we got so of course. My heart sank because usually causes the driver and they said but you guys were the only people who obviously understood what needed to be done into the proper planning to understand what this project was going to look like so therefore you guys get the job so in that case even though we were more expensive because that was an organization that understood how important the planning was they you know. They will pay premium for that. It's good to hear a success story when someone actually realizes that you've put thought into it and is willing to pay the extra money but i know that when i've done a schedule or i've seen when krista schedule and we think about the whole system even though our part is the firmware you know we tend to be the end so he kind of want to think about the whole system so that you don't just end up being the end of the dog of the tail wagging.

For all they did the military personnel From all across the federal, state and local agencies secured yesterday's inaugural activities and a special thanks to the members of National Guard around the country. It was an unprecedented situation hopeful not never have to be renewed again and everyone handle with the most professionalism and duty and honor that you could be expected. The president as president is commander in chief. I always respect and revere their service and that of their families. But now to today's announcement, Vice President Harrison I were joined by members of.
"dwight eisenhower" Discussed on C-SPAN Radio
"Not just us, we swear an oath, but it's all of America. Barack Obama spoke from that chamber and he said, I'm going to be taking another title next year. Citizen Mm hmm. And he was proud to take that and every citizen needs to protect, preserve and uplift our democracy. Some today did not do that many today 68 years ago in Springfield, Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson. Gracefully conceded his loss to General Dwight Eisenhower, he said this in traditionally it is traditionally American. He told his deeply disappointed supporters toe fight hard before an election. But then, he added, it is equally traditional to close ranks as soon as the people have spoken, not the Congress, not the electors. The people have spoken that would unite us as American citizens is far greater than that, which divides us as political parties. It was another man from Springfield, Fourscore and eight years earlier for one re election to the presidency and the national crisis that tested our country and its democratic institutions who pleaded even in his hour of victory for the same Of reconciliation. That was the party of Lincoln. That hasn't happened.
What Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis means for the country
"Were always joined on Saturday morning by John Gizzi. He is the White House correspondent and chief political columnist of newsmax dot com and Newsmax TV, John. Good morning. Good morning, Rick. And what a night it wass. Well, obviously, we're following the latest developments on President Trump and his diagnosis with covert 19. What is the latest you're hearing on the president. The president is resting comfortably at the Walter Reed Hospital where yesterday he left the White House. And arrived at the hospital. I might and he left the White House in his usual business suit looking as he always does. Uh, this is not someone who has been felled by the virus. But simply has symptoms of the Corona virus, and he will rest there until doctors say he can come out. Which effectively scotches the debate. Scheduled for October. 15th. But it doesn't mean he's going to be in the hospital through the rest of the campaign, and we may see a newer and better Donald Trump emerged from Walter Reed. For now, all signs are that he's resting and that this is not anything that Americans should be nervous about. John. We know the Corona virus hits each individual differently, assuming the best for the president, where he quarantines for the 14 days and gets through this What is the impact on the campaign for the impact on the campaign is that right now there's an absentee candidate that the president cannot have is make America great again Rallies. He cannot debate He cannot issue pronouncements, although one as the impression after covering Donald Trump for the past four years that no hospital and no confinement Ooh! Ah hospital bed is going to keep him away from his tweeting. Uh, hey, certainly can campaign that way. And another thing. We have a long history in America of candidates who are hospitalized or injured who actually do well as their supporters carry on for them. When he made his first center base in 1948 Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson was laid up for a period with very brutal, Cole. His wife, Lady Bird and others served is very effective Speakers and he went on to win hard fought race. I know of a case of another candidate, Arch war who was elected governor of West Virginia after surviving a helicopter crash. So just because it candidate is hospitalized or unhealthy doesn't mean it's a foregone conclusion. He'll lose well, John. Obviously, we know the polarization across the country and the polarization in the media. And there will be a lot of talk about the 25th amendment, and I just wanted to get sort of a factual look. At the 25th amendment. So when people hear the pundits talking about it, they understand it. Alright, 25th amendment was passed. In the late 19 sixties. It is known as the Presidential Succession Amendment. Its functions are twofold. One Puts into law what had been an informal agreement between presidents and their vice presidents. For a long time before them. And that means when the president is incapacitated, say is when he goes under the knife. For surgery, He turns over the powers. Of his office to his number two who effectively becomes acting President Richard Nixon served his acting president after a heart attack. President Dwight Eisenhower, and after a mild stroke, the president suffered Similarly, when Lyndon Johnson had surgery, Hubert Humphrey was the acting president and Dido for George H. W. Bush. Under Ronald Reagan when he had cancer surgery in his second term. The other part of the amendment is that if the vice president succeeds to the presidency, he or she can then designate Vice president that the Senate must give its advice and consent to I might add that when a president is declared unable to continue in his office for health reasons, the 25th amendment can be invoked. By the vice president and his succession to the top job can be insured. Post debate. Polls are now being released Thursday morning, NBC News National Polling had Biden up 7.9 points over President Trump Real clear politics showing Biden with a 6.6 lead over Trump Fivethirtyeight national polling tracker gave Biden the 7.6 advantage. President didn't seem to gain any ground whatsoever in the debates. Possibly lost some ground. What's your analysis is, we move forward. First of all, I do believe that the polls accurately reflect The post debate. Momentum is with Joe Biden, and it has very little to do with the debate itself. But with the media's interpretation of how candidates Trump and Biden acquitted themselves on national television, and of course, the opinion off the punditocracy is almost unanimous. The president was ruled. He interrupted. He had no consistent thought. And Joe Biden was a gentleman. That is their opinion. Which is being repeated by a lot of people. There's two factors that leaves this reporter to say that these numbers might have flaws in them. The first is the hidden vote. There's a lot of people, certainly, as was the case in 2016, who just won't admit they're voting for Donald Trump. Obviously they do so when they're in the voting booth. The other is that Joe Biden right now, by being cool, is holding on and appearing a front runner. Did. Donald Trump loses the debate? It all depends on who you ask. Chuck Booth, commentator and conservative activists from Nevada said the president decided to use this format to speak directly. To his base of supporters and try and rally them to the polls. He compared the president's performance and his refusal to abide by Time outs to the scene in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid when Butch is facing a much larger man and challenges him to a knife fight. And then says, but we have to go through the rules. The other man says there's no rules in a knife fight at which point which kicks him. And effectively weakens and subdues him. That's what the president's goal Wass with Joe Biden and to his base, he succeeded. So let's turn to the impact on the Senate and the Congress a lot of business to attend to, including the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. We take pause for well wishes from Democrats. But as we can see in the Chuck Schumer tweet, it is a one sentence pause. And then we're back into politics. Here's what he said Friday night. We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for covert and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well, so that's the nicety. And here's the politics. It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with the hearing, and there was absolutely no good reason to do so. Well, I would just say that the distinguished minority leader of the Senate, Senator Schumer should look a little bit more. At the rules of the Senate as wrong is there is a quorum of senators in the committee. They could move along, particularly if chairman gavels in now what he's referring to are Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Thom Tillis of North Carolina. Both Judiciary Committee members and both presently incapacitated by the Corona virus. Both could easily recover in a short time. Remember the Judiciary Committee hearings on drugs, Parrots nomination don't begin until the 14th of Oct over. So any judgments about Senator Tillis or Senator Lee? Not being in the job in two weeks is a bit premature. That's the Supreme Court debate. Let's talk about the stimulus deal. New York Times Reporting. Speaker Pelosi said that the president's positive Corona virus test could change the dynamic and produce a Nagre mint on additional pandemic relief. But a compromise remains elusive. The gist of it from Speaker Pelosi is that now the Republicans will take Corona virus more seriously. Well, where do we
How did the GOP become the party of Trump?
"For, a long time you didn't need to vote for the Republican Party to understand what it thought. It stood for this was the GOP, the grand old party natural political home of Steel Spine Rock ribbed American patriots who feed gold revered the flag and prized freedom. The Great. Republican presidents was serious people Abraham Lincoln the laconic lawyer who saved the Union freed the Slaves Theodore Roosevelt these swashbuckling polymath with a sweeping vision of America's place in the world. Dwight Eisenhower. The general who are treated d day liberated Europe. Then signed the first civil rights bill balanced the budget and ended the war in Korea Ronald Reagan. The indefatigable optimist who won the Cold War George H, w Bush. The bomber pilot turned oil baron who wanted a kinder gentler nation. Republicans. Preached Individual Liberty Individual Responsibility? Civic. Respectability they believed themselves stolid practical, dignified, and decent. If. One had to conjure a cartoonish affront to all that the GOP has affected to hold dearest one would arrive at a caricature very much like President Donald trump a godless draft dodger, a leering creep, an incorrigible liar, a perennial associate of Crooks Yahoos and Weirdos and a shameless ignoramus. But there he is at least until January twentieth and possibly for four beyond. In. The first episode of our series looking at the twenty twenty US presidential election, we'll ask how when, and why. The Party of Lincoln became the Party of trump. Why have so many GOP grandees being so willing to go along with this and what kind of future Republicans have once America runs out of angry mean old white guys

US Still In Open Skies Treaty, Needs Evidence To Support Exit
"The open skies treaty basically says to Russia you show me yours and I'll show you mine for the past seventeen years that treaty has left Washington and Moscow take aerial photos openly of one another's military installations nearly all the NATO allies take part in the treaty as does Ukraine but there are increasing signs that the trump administration is ready to close the American skies and bail out of this treaty and yours David welna has the story it was president Dwight Eisenhower who first proposed the US and the Soviet Union fly over each other's territory and exchange their photos the first President Bush revive that idea after the Soviet Union collapsed and it was early in his son's administration one such flights actually began under the open skies treaty its proponents say that even in the age of satellites the treaty offers distinct advantages and gives you access to things that even if you have a satellite network you might not be able to see the old girl liquor she directs the your program at the international crisis group in Brussels via Skype she says it's not just that surveillance planes can fly below clouds blocking the view of satellites they also help prevent dangerous miscalculations or wait for the parties to be on the same page about who has watched where on Wednesday the Senate Armed Services Committee held a confirmation hearing for deputy secretary of state John Sullivan nominee for the empty ambassadors post in Moscow Massachusetts Democrat ed Markey press Sullivan about signs the U.
