"His own authority. As me as Marshall and this is I think a number of very understudied quarter were success Marshall both had a little book or people that he picked up all through the thirties that he wanted to. Make sure he promoted. He was a position to do so but in addition. Marshall retired. An entire generation of senior officers. And people don't realize that number of people who were well meaning that over the hill or didn't quite get. It couldn't move at the pace of modern warfare in these are personal friends of his knees known for twenty thirty years, and so he's creating the space for a much younger Gal guys in Howard arise because he is wiping out the generation above eisenhower. And says one of the great management achievements who's it so hard to do a big bureaucracy I think that is such a profound point and few people really realize how tough that might have been. I think Marshall was also brilliant in convening what was called the Louisiana maneuvers. Before the war and he got his military forces out there it was the largest military war game in the history of our country and. They took over the state of Louisiana literally doing an amphibious landings on the coast there and it went on for some time Eisenhower was chief of staff to the winning shot of that set of maneuvers and that was one of the things that cemented him in Marshall's mind. But really, I so agree with you, I think the George.

Three generation of Eisenhower's in total. So on behalf of three generations, the eyes are family. I wish to say that this is a wonderful and long awaited evening. Now the program calls on me to tell family stories. And since it's raining and a number of speakers have drawn attention of that, I will tell you our very favorite family story. It is June 1954. Dr. Milton Eisenhower is president of Penn State. Dwight Eisenhower. His brother is president of the United States, and he is scheduled to deliver a commencement at Penn State. And you know, Penn State is a very large university. This is an outdoor event and with thousands gathering this is threatened by rain. You can picture the scene and worry. The president's houses. Milton is on the phone, and he's pacing the living room. But as the story goes at one point remarks Milton since June 6th 1944. I have never worried about the rain, such with life with Dwight Eisenhower led He experienced the words and a late for boldness, decision, bravery and achievement in the service of his country. Indeed, my earliest memory of the world is being buckled into a seat aboard the Columbine General Eisenhower's NATO command plane of 1951. I just think we remember Granddad boarding the plane in his army uniform. I remember the electricity in the energy surrounding him in the use of all. Not once did I doubt his greatness, Knowing his extraordinary mind and spirit, His generosity, fairness encourage. Also speak tonight is a former commissioner. I was a member of the original commission. That gathered of 20 years ago in the 20 year effort to complete the eyes are memorial. We've seen that national memorials do not just come about. We've learned in the process that there will always be different opinions and controversy, and we have seen that success depends on dedicated individuals. Possessed of energy. Single mindedness. Envision such a person was our original commission chairman, the late Rocco Siciliano and tonight we also remember senators Ted Stevens and Daniel anyway, too early commissioners who would not settle for anything less than a great national memorial and senators feed his wife. Catherine is with us tonight, and she is a commissioner and I say congratulations to her. I offer congratulations also to Susan Harris and LG. It'll dig board members throughout this process and our deepest appreciation to the congressmen and senators who also served and we salute general Karl Riddell, without whom there would be no memorial..

"On the road, the world has been picking. This is not a way of life at all. In any Kussin. Under the cloud of threatening warriors humanity hanging from crossfire. These brain google-approved defying the payroll. And Point. The prominent spring of Nineteen fifty. That's President Eisenhower in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three, speaking to the American Society of newspaper. Editors. Now Susan. I. Is isn't how had gone from the horrors of the Second World War and the threats of Nazism and fascism, and then he and the world tumble into the potential horrors nuclear armageddon of the Cold War. So can you talk to us a little bit about sort of what what principles? Really animated him. During that period where he was president of the unit of the United States you how what did he do that really led him or most most overtly demonstrated his commitment to try to keep peace and avoid nuclear armageddon. Well. First of all, there are a number of factors there his first objective as president United States much as it was during the war was to bring unity of purpose to the United States of America We had already been in an unpopular war in Korea and I actually believed that small wars could get large and they if an enemy is losing, they will use everything in their arsenal, and so he did not believe that small interjections here there. And everywhere, would be in any way a productive for our national security. So he tried to unite the the United States and that idea It was a very very tense time within the country to the Soviet Union was making advances into eastern Europe China had become a communist country and so You know this was a key point. He also believed that the unity of our country by the way is the national security issue. And I still say that today I mean as as I said it. This disunity would be a welcome sight for an alert enemy. and I think that that phrase is is APP today as as it was then. the other principals he brought to this was, of course, we mentioned it before expert opinion, and he had a really an excellent relationship with the scientific community. And in a second term, he actually restructures the government so that he has person to person access to Nobel laureates and other great scientists who reported directly to the president of the United States. and then. I think the other? Principle, which is a rather novel in today's Environment Is this no personalities question We were deeply divided internally during the McCarthy period. And Eisenhower actually managed to avoid over the course of a year and a half ever mentioning. Senator McCarthy's name because he did not want to give Senator McCarthy the publicity value of ending up in a debate with the president united. States he didn't think that Senator McCarthy should rise to that level. so Behind the scenes strategy that actually successfully. Finally Eliminating Senator McCarthy's influence and just one other thing to remember here is that he knew the president added States has no authority to censure a renegade senator that that would have to be done by the senators themselves. So he worked behind the scenes to finally bring the majority To the recognition that senator McCarthy had to be censored. So I'm really glad that you mentioned this and turn to you on this because this this the concept of the driving concept of unity of purpose. Is Through and through in your book in terms of how Eisenhower. Viewed the purpose of his life quite frankly and and his desire to contribute to American unity and at the same time. I mean the McCarthy example shows one of the many ways that America. Actually was quite deeply divided I want to explore some of those ways over the next couple of minutes but Jack just just your thoughts on what Susan said about either McCarthy Eisenhower's. Deep drive to contribute or preserve the unity of purpose in America. Well. Privately he remarked of McCarthy. I just don't want to get into a pissing contest with that skunk. and. You know he was he was roundly criticized for being basically not even saying the name of Senator McCarthy and people felt thin and historian subsequently that he should have come out stronger and earlier and not just waited from her carseat to destroy himself. But McCarthy did and how ironically it was by taking on the army it was when McCarthy began to. You know open his hearings into the army into the scandal that Roy cones friend was not treated well by the army. Eisenhower I think must have known he had. That McCarthy democracy was. was on the way out because. People had high regard for the for the services and and then, and then when McCarthy appealed to defend himself against the charges that he had interfered in the cone tried to interfere to make things better for the young man they were favoring recruit McCarthy. tried to subpoena documents from the Eisenhower Administration and the president said, no, I'm not giving them anything. SLAZENGER that historian said, this was the most brazen assertion of executive privilege in the history of the Republic I'm not giving Congress anything. Sorry. Private conversations documents. You're not gonNA, get any of it, and of course it it seemed totally unprecedented then and was certainly in a good cause. Of course, it's been since eclipsed by Mr Trump who wouldn't give congress anything. And partly impeached for that reason. But Susan, go ahead Susan. No I just kind of say back. Eisenhower. Strategy You know he's he's completely I thought he is completely correct i. mean there are historians who think he handled it the right way which was containment. surely without confrontation but Harry Truman and dean. Aitchison is Secretary State had confronted McCarthy and it only made McCarthy more powerful. So ice objectives were to use the bully. Pulpit to talk about the principles of American free speech and then behind the scenes, persuade the people who actually had power over McCarthy to censure him and to discredit. McCarthy's words don't forget that You know this is the president's Party and They actually supported McCarthy So this is actually a very. Delicate undertaking and I think it's going to remain a subject of great fascination for many years to come, and in fact, in in reading some reviews and responses to your book Susan. I I see people pointing out that Eisenhower did not come through this entirely unscathed, right? I mean to the point of this being his own party folks are pointing out how there was a time I think it was in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, two where he were President Eisenhower's GonNa get was giving a speech in Milwaukee and decided to not include a paragraph celebrating General George Marshall right who had been Eisenhower's mentor PAID THE PRICE FOR THAT Well because because. You know this is not just remember this is a fascinating period for.

"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host Kit crumb today the mystery of the Bonus Army July twenty eighth nineteen thirty two will mark the eighth anniversary of one of the most controversial protests in US history and yet it remains virtually unknown to most Americans. On, that day nineteen, thirty, two, five, hundred, US army infantrymen loaded rifles, fixed bayonets, gas grenades containing of vomited ingredient two, hundred cavalry, a machine gun squadron eight, hundred police and six M One, nine, thousand, nine, hundred seventeen army tanks prepared to attack seventeen hundred unarmed men plus thousands of their wives and children moments before the Assault General Douglas Smith Garth in charge of the operation turned. To police officers standing next to him and said, I will break the back of the enemy. The attack was ordered by President Herbert Hoover and commanded by General Macarthur Dwight D Eisenhower was MacArthur's aide and Major. General George. S, Patton led the tank unit after donning gas masks the tossed hundreds of tear-gas grenades into the encampment which started raging fires and the assault drove all but the. Occupants of the area in Kampman was then burned to the ground. This wasn't Cuba the Philippines or the Mexican border. But in Washington DC The camp nicknamed Hoover Ville occupied by World War One veterans who were living in tents and shanties across the country and they're also in their encampment in DC with crumbling buildings all around them along Pennsylvania Avenue near the capital if your education was anything like mine, there wasn't any mention of this event. In history class four, million vets had returned from the war. This is World War One was the war to end all wars and found that others had taken their jobs that are considerably higher wage than though one dollar per day soldiers pay an expected more help from the government in nineteen twenty four Congress promised World War One veterans a bonus payment. I'll dollar twenty five for each day of overseas service and a dollar for every day of. Home Service there would be a limit of six hundred, twenty five dollars for overseas service and five hundred for Home Service but the catch twenty two was that it could not be redeemed until nineteen forty five cash quickly dubbed at the tombstone bonus because many of them would be dead before collecting with the Great Depression deepening demands for making an immediate payment we're escalating finally bill was passed, but President Hoover vetoed it in response some three hundred. Veterans led by Ex Sergeant Walter waters boarded a freight train in Portland Oregon in early May nineteen, thirty, two and headed. For Washington DC. Soon, others began their pilgrimage the cat to the capital from across the country and dilapidated buses overcrowded pickup trucks by walking hitch-hiking the vets and their families were in desperate financial shape with overdue bills to pay hunger affections hanging over their heads. They demanded immediate payment of the bonus soon, known as a bonus. Between Seventeen Thousand and twenty five thousand trekkers began arriving on May twenty third nineteen, thirty, two, assuming their demands wouldn't be met anytime soon, they proceeded to set up a long-term presence in order fashion they mapped out streets named for states, Setup Library and post office, a barber shop and a military type sanitation approach appointed MP's to keep order publish their own cap newspaper and even organized evening.

That's insisted on American flag fly over every tent and Shanti further as Roy. Wilkins than a young reporter with a press pass road. There was only one absentee in the Cap James Crowe get it Jim Crow. The entire massive undertaking was one in which blacks applied shared everything. Together, during world, War One, the military was still segregated as was Anacostia Park when the marchers arrived the vets who had fought a war together deliberately decided to live side by side and set up in the black section of the park. This fact alone may have led some people to fear the movement General Macarthur's most trusted subordinate Brigadier General. George Van Horn Moseley portrayed black and white veterans living together. As proof that Negroes Jewish communist were planning a revolution in truth radicals and Communists were dismissed by the veterans and were never serious element in the movement. The veterans those were still alive didn't receive their bonuses until nineteen, forty five keep in mind that many. World War One vets had died by then and families were not eligible for the bonus. The ravages of the Great Depression continued until World War Two. Today. We have a confluence of factors including the federal government's failure to protect US citizens for the Cobra virus and pandemic machine fiscal austerity in the face of another great depression a newly transparent institutional racism that has provided an unparalleled opportunity to replicate the bonus army's action in the nation's capital this time on an unprecedented scale depth and breadth of

How did the GOP become the party of Trump?

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.

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

COVID-19 Learning Hubs

"Over affluent parents organizing private learning pods. You have found that there's actually an alternative emerging for families who don't have the means to hire private nannies or tutors. Tell us about that alternative. Yes, So I've been tracking these all over the country in New York City's Amber disco to Memphis, Tennessee, and they're sometimes called learning Hubbs or learning labs. And these air being organized by cities themselves or by school districts offer groups of students a safe place to go during the day and help with remote learning and free WiFi, which a lot of families don't have. And what's really important is they're either free thes. Cubs or very low cost and subsidised for the families that need it. So what exactly do these learning labs heir Learning hubs look like It's it's combo school, plus aftercare yet, basically so these air, you know, obviously really small groups of kids that's important for Corona virus safety. The locations are ranging from, You know, a school building A Y M C. A. A library. Some organizations are looking at the leasing space is like maybe even an empty university campus or a gym. And then, in some cases, school employees are actually working at thes helps. For example, I remember Station reporter over you has a WW Eno. She visited two of these learning hubs in New Orleans. And, she says, while child care is a really big draw. Families are also coming for the WiFi. Let's take a Listen. Dwight D. Eisenhower Charter School School leaders greet mass clad students as they make their way into the building. School normally serves more than 600 students. But today it's expecting fewer than two dozen It's because in New Orleans public schools are technically still close and learning is entirely virtual. Students that are here are attending the schools learning, huh? The cafeteria. Kids were separated into socially distance groups of nine each, quietly working away on their own device. They are loved in their signs up everywhere for the WiFi for she wants to get on to And then there are a lot of adults floating around to help and all the kids are wearing masks. Faculty are wearing masks and face shields as well. Hubs run by educators. Eisenhower principal Rolanda Green says a lot of students are here. For one thing. It literally is to get Internet access. And if you needed technology, we have it here available for you. City estimates that more than 9000 New Orleans students may not have Internet access for remote learning. It's far more kids in the local learning hubs are currently serving. Eisenhower is part of the inspired Nolan Charter Schools Network, which is funding and operating free hubs for almost 600 students. New Orleans public schools has committed to providing every student with a tablet or a laptop. But the devices aren't very helpful without an Internet connection. You can have a computer and can't utilize Google glass rooms right. That's Timlin, Sam's inspired Nola's director of community engagement. She says the hubs are an essential tool for ensuring equal access to virtual learning. She also points out that in New Orleans, a majority black school district, white Children are more likely to attend. A private school are private and parochial schools are back in session. None of our public schools are So we'll white Children are more likely to be back in the classroom. Black and brown students are mostly learning from home in many cases without reliable Internet. Spirt. Nola's hubs offer both Internet and supervision, but only one or two days a week. And even with staggered attendance, the network says it's at capacity with a wait list more than 200 students long City of New Orleans. Also operating learning hubs out of libraries and rec centers like this one in New Orleans East Just open five days a week. Seven greater as moral to Smith says she's happy to get out of her house. I just think I needed the time away from all the noise and distracted at home to come here and I quietly A peaceful Emily Wolf with the mayor's Office of Youth and Families says the city has tried to make the hubs accessible, especially for low income families and those with no Internet. There is still considerable barriers. Families are responsible for transportation and the hubs get funding from the federal government, which involves a lot of paperwork. You know, we wish we could just have him fill out a simple registration performing get signed up right away. But that made it a little bit slower. And unfortunately, you know, for some families, they see all of that. And It's just a barrier. Wolf says. Family submitted interest forms for more than 1000 students in mid August, But so far only 100 Children are registered. City has room for 500 students and is already looking to expand. While the district's youngest students have the option to return to the classroom in mid September, older students will continue with virtual learning until at least mid October. For NPR

Newt Minow on the Presidential Debates

"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan and this is intelligence squared US part of our discourse disruptor series and what we're going to be focusing on. Our the coming presidential debates they are coming sort of starting September twenty-ninth, the first of three. And of course, because everything's different this year, the debates are going to feel different almost certainly going to be. In some fashion remote, maybe the debaters, the candidates won't even be in the same place. There's only going to be one moderator. We're not gonNA live audience because you can't have that many people in one space in this dangerous time. Also what we have going on as a conversation simultaneously with which is focused on, maybe we shouldn't have debates maybe it's time to wrap up that whole institution and go back to a time of no debates. And when I say go back did you know that for most of American history this institution that we know is the debates did not exist that for most of our history, there were no debates and did you know that once we started having debates that in the first series, there was a remote debate the candidates were not in the same place and there was no live audience. And there was only one moderator. So maybe things are circling back. There's a lot of history here and we are interested in that because. At intelligence squared, we are very interested in history and we are also very very interested in debates. So that's what we want to focus on and we want to focus. In this case of discourse disrupters with an excellent source of information about the past and the present and potentially the future, and that is a gentleman named Newton Minot and Newton Minnow is an old friend of intelligence squared us and he's also known as the father of American presidential debates and we'll talk a little bit about why that is. But first, let's bring Newt Minnow into the conversation newt. Thank you so much for for joining us. It's really a pleasure to be back in communication with you. John I. LOOK FORWARD TO I. Admire your work or the intelligence squared very very much. Well, thank you. Can I ask before we start everything else I find it interesting that for folks who don't know you have lived through some very, very disruptive times and this one in your nineties a comes at the after a long series of other adventures. I mean, you have lived through I, think twenty three presidential elections. At this point, you have seen twelve cycles of the debates that we're GONNA be talking about. You lived through the major disruption called World War to. Use served overseas you went into politics You're an aide to ally Stevenson who ran for president does the Democratic nominee twice in the nineteen fifties. So you saw two elections then you joined John Kennedy's administration and you saw the trauma of his assassination and then you were very close friends with Robert Kennedy and you saw his assassination and lived through that and and now this. Just just to take a moment is, is this disruption different in dramatically in kind from all of the others you've seen so far? Well, I lived through all that, but then I had another. Exposure to politics with Obama, the because Michelle worked for our firm and and Barack came to be a summer associate and they fell in love and so we got. So we had another round politics with with with the OBAMAS. About that but all throughout, I would say the last fifty years of this you have been intersecting with this institution that we call the presidential debates take us back to nineteen, fifty, nine, nineteen, sixty, where as an aide to at least Stevenson. You actually were involved in the idea of pushing forward the idea that there there. He did not get to take part in that kind of debate but was interested in enemies interested because you are suggesting it. You have a very strong faith in the idea of technology. To be a force for good and for communication and you saw television as this, you're right as this big thing happening in the sixties. Well, it actually was in the fifties in when. In in the fifty six. Presidential, election. The incumbent President President Eisenhower. Having a heart attack. And there was a big question whether he would be able to run again. And I suggested to adly that instead of the candidates. Rushing. All over the country and speaking crowds that that. Now, we have television which reached every home. And that instead of traditional debate that. There'd be a series of joint appearances or debates between the presidential candidates. As they considered that his advisors thought it was a gimmick and it was he never suggested it. The Federal Communications Act when it was originally passed during the new deal. Required equal time for political candidates. The law said section three fifteen FA broadcaster gives or sells time to one candidate. At must give ourselves time to the opponent on the same basis. As a result that was interpreted by the Federal Communications Commission to mean any use of the air by a candidate including being in a news program. So the broadcasters were pressing to get news programs exempt. From the equal time requirement and they finally succeeded in the late fifties. But debates were not regarded as a news program.

Happen I mean while we already know it's not good. It's unbelievable how how these things go and you can agree with trump or not agree with trump doesn't matter to me, but it was a different time. The accomplishments that you can list are. Enormous there there was also to I'm there's lots to fail failures that happened along the way or the biggest thing is, is you have to remember the idea that we can compromise to work together to get something done at accomplished is the most important. And we were able to do that under the Eisenhower Administration I say we as the American people were able to do that. We had one of the best economies in the history of our country continue to grow technology expanded people started getting TV's in their house like a big deal now, but that's a huge back. Them cars were coming more relevant valuable. Yeah. The Second Industrial Revolution and all of a sudden you have. A continuation of Eisenhower's policies under the next under the Kennedy. Administration or you have more movements. The horizon is as back to you have more NASA and then the other things that have happened A. Some of that was part of our policy as well but also at the same time. So that was not we. Ask that question then I'm happy to answer the. Best Magog. Sure. Yeah. Now, one thing I want to ask also is and I've always been curious about this is when you are part of a family that is as prominent as the Eisenhower family. When you're growing up, when does the talk happened? When does the talk happen where it's like? You know your your great grandfather was the leader of the free world at one point was most important person on earth and also that's not normal like not hit because you know when you're growing up your world is your world and you just assume that at least when I was growing up. You know I just assume well, this is the way all families are right but. At what age does that you know become aware do you become aware? You know wow. My great grandfather was a really big deal and this is a very unique special thing and my my my classmates, their great grandfather wasn't president of the United States how and how do you get aware? How do you understand that in a way that? You kind of have that self awareness of how special that is. I, don't think you have a really do having been honest. I. Am I am I believe that everybody's pretty much equal and it doesn't really matter to me one way or the other. The thing is it's not. It's not what you who you related to what you deal with what you're doing appeal to people. International were five. Oh One C. Three humanitarian world peace organization that does cultural exchange. We do things like HIV awareness and Tanzania for one hundred and fifty thousand at risk women and children. For HIV, we give them the same chapter we provide sewing machine so that they can learn a trade. So they don't have to do prostitution in other places we put it in water clean water. Hand washing stations, we do living library. So we can educate people we work in support all different types of things around the world to to try to make the world of place missing the fact that we did to also then travel to those places in meet the people that were helping. I mean that by itself is something. That's amazing. Because you realize for two seconds, it doesn't matter that my great grandfather was president is now what matters is what we're doing about or are doing today and today more than ever. We need to make sure we have civility in this world. We need to make sure that we're leaving a better place unfortunately for you and I. We've messed it up enough. We can only teach people how to fix it and try to fix it and every day you have an opportunity to do that every single day, you have an opportunity to make the world a better place. And not only your responsibility as a person as human being, but you need to make sure you're tolerant teach people. Tolerance is a good thing. Make sure that you're not only doing that but help people and you can could you imagine if everybody in the world that one act of kindness day? Seven billion acts of kindness if they did it for one hundred days, it would be seven hundred, billion acts of kindness if they did it for two hundred days, it'd be one point four, trillion of kindness. Do you think the world would be a better place? If we had a one point, four trillion acts of kindness over the next hundred days I think. So and that's that's the legacy that I was teaching is that we were we have a responsibility inherent responsibility especially being from this country to try to make the world a better place continue to work hard to strive to make a peaceful resolution. People say pieces impossible I say pieces is possible if you understand people and understanding people is understanding culture being tolerant. Understanding who they are, what they are what they need. And just acting way that's a manner that respects that I. think if you could do that, you can be friends with anybody if I can be friends with you, I can certainly promote peace through that. I it sounds like a lot of the values that President Eisenhower used in his leadership has influenced you in your approach in position with. Would say my mom has but. But but no, it's. Not Mutual exclusive, right But the thing is, is that if you stop for second stop for a second th, there's madness going on all around us right now where we're talking about what's happening in this country but we forget about the fact that there's one of the largest HIV. Problems going on in Tanzania. How does using that as an example because earlier United States get ten bucks, the Tanzania for HIV awareness. We might be able to help renegade that problem going on there we we get so bogged down in our own personal views as. This includes me by the way that we forget to take a step back and say you know what that could be that person's worst. They've ever had their whole entire life and we can work together to make that a better day for them. All you gotTa do sometimes is open the door. And that's it. It's really simple and if I can do that, you can do it. Everybody can do it. Walk walk on my own someone else's shoes while I'm never going to be able to do that unless I take time to understand where that or they're coming from. Right. Now my last question. So fairly or unfairly, presidents are often remembered for a specific thing. Lincoln civil war. Washington father. country. What do you think Eisenhower would like to have been remembered for. Him. Golf Golf Golf. I know nosy thing is is that you got to remember an administration he gave credit to everybody else He wasn't that type of person. I think history history is being rewritten and written more about him is realizing especially as the documents have been Opening up of the classified documents. That he was, he was like duck. Duck in the water, it was able to absolutely one hundred percent. Stay calm have come front but at the same time. There was a whole entire world. That was. That was. On fire dislike today you know. He was able to contain communism is able to balance the budget. Those are all things that that people will remind him of that people will remember him by, but I honestly think that if you asked him directly, he would say I want to be remembered for being grant great grandfather and a great husband and someone that was able to pull himself up from Abilene Kansas and.

"Now. I do want to talk more about PTI since it's a big part of his legacy. What was Eisenhower like as a husband and as a as a father you kind of you hear about these figures, but you can know them on the resume but not necessarily personally well, what was he like just from what you've heard? Well. My mom gets asked this question go ahead and. Get asked about that with with Nixon too well, and and you know other people. But thing is you don't know any different, right. My mom always says, there's three hats that I wore. He wore the general how needed to reward the president had when he needed to but he always had the grandfather had on whenever whenever he was with them in fact in Gettysburg which was the Eisenhower state back then. People to come in and Land Gettysburg through the helicopters to call. Khrushchev. Name a leader they would land there and all the grandchildren of grandchildren my grandfather. Grandmother would all go over a two to the farm and dinner It was just a family affair with some guy that spoke a different language. And that's kind of how I remember I. Remember One story mother told me was it was just this mechanical bird that kind of. Moved around right and you ended up and moved around in all of this was really according to her at the time. She was about finders all remember shares in the White House. It was the most amazing thing that ever happened. Right the most amazing thing. and. She'd wind up the bird and then she broke it. To broken. And she was so worried that disappoint everybody until she hit. and. Later on that night she she went and told. Her Dad that she should should birds who was very saddened very, very upset. And when over to her grandfather because it was his grandfather's and gave it to him. So I'm sorry I broke this. Story about not a big deal. Here's another one in. Three of who the man was you know those one time another great stories when she was about six years old there was this remember those Taco truck type things Right right those actually started coming out in the late fifties early sixties and other kids would would go around the circle and the White House outside during around it and they never let. My mom do it because my way too young at the time? and. One time she she had this opportunity. I was doing something else but she had her own service, the diaper critical diaper detail with the people that took care of her got an car she started going and then all of us there was this came up. And stopped her said, what are you doing lady? You're speeding it I need ranch your ticket. So Roy, ticket And gave it to her. She was really upset. Things don't do is our household according to my mom one we know line until we don't break the law and she got a ticket for speeding and she she knew she was in trouble and the deep trouble. And so she threatened she threatened all day long going back and forth what am I going to do? What am I gonNA do and she ended up having to go until Grandad as she spoke and so it's is there anything? Is there anything I can do at long? So sorry, you know against being taken it looked and goes. What am I going do with us? He goes I'll tell you what you can't drive again for another eleven years. And that was the punishment, right so that grandfather's grandfather course he could drive again because he was five going to drive again for news because you'll be sixteen of Royce yet and she was like Oh man, I'm sorry you know shucks NASA reality of how things were in its insists just you don't know the difference family life it was it was just a good good husband. Loyal Loyalty, family loyal to the country. But the man never lost his roots when he was later on when he retired from being President United States here's put on a wig and go show his cattle that he added the Gettysburg Farm and a couple times I. Think you want a blue ribbon to I'm not sure how but. It was a bad wig and they knew who he was. Of course he wanted to blue ribbon, right? So that's just who he wants to be outdoors loved to fish loved the hunt. Big Big midwestern ideas. Right, now his farewell address is one of the most famous American documents as you know, one of the most famous farewell addresses of all time. It's really his in Washington's that get talked about. It's quoted a lot by people on the right by people on the left what do people get right and what do people get wrong about the farewell address. Boy. And I ask because you know people like to appropriate history for their own purposes often with the federal justice. No different. So. So today if you think about. Getting back to that and just second, but I had to give background. So I can give you give you my answer properly. But today if you think about it for two seconds, the United States is a completely different world than it was even ten years ago fifteen years ago twenty specially fifty sixty seventy years ago right? I was would idea that he had was that we we could be the beacon of hope in humanity. Yet remember that under the Eisenhower Administration. There were so many things that happened that were monumental than that never happened in the history of of mankind one, we started the NASA program where shooting rockets up into space. To compete with Russia and not to mention the fact that we needed to do it anyway, number two we we started the interstate system in one, thousand, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, one on his convoy for the first time across the country, it took him sixty two days. By the time he left office the project was underway were now instigators degraded economic engine in the history of the world also the largest infrastructure project in the history of the world as well. The United States that's that's not quite right anymore. But whenever you start thinking about it for two seconds, that was a forty year project. So it got appropriate in an nineteen fifty-six but the last allocation of that was in nineteen, ninety six. It wasn't fast, bend? It was a long term project that was paid for by. Taxpayers. Money. How did they do the excise tax that we talked about earlier? It raised the excise tax in the United States from one penny to two. So he w excise tax in order to pay for the infrastructure project? Something that's unheard of today right? It was able to expand the government by forming different agencies, new agencies, combining agencies. But at the same time, he was able to maintain fiscal responsibility. Operating the black last present to operate in the Black and seven balanced budgets. Unbelievable. That's unheard of today. Could you imagine of today we actually balanced budget Together along a well enough to compromise to have a discussion how much good we can do for the world and that's what he did. He brought people to the table that were able to talk through problems. He figured that if you met somebody in the agreed with him eighty percent of the time, you probably could get something done. That's the stuff that he learned throughout his whole entire life all the way back to being a leader football team being at West Point getting through graduating that bringing camaraderie together. Allowing people to work together was a way to solve problems and. He had the first bill passed. Since, reconstruction for example would have been better would have been much better if it wasn't for all. BJ. But that's a different conversation for different day we can talk about that. You know I'm not going to beat on LBJ but that that was one of those things where. They were willing to allow further, but it was the important thing is, is that happened right? He was the last president to sit in the active..

"That today even as kind of interesting. But in all fairness, she is in the World Golf Hall of fame. So I mean so yes, he didn't he didn't play golf. But the thing is is that you have to remember is that. When he left office, he was number he was ranked number twenty. Or so roughly. Thirty president. So he was ringing very low as one of the worst presidents ever to lead to leave the country which is and I'm not saying this just because you're as grand grandson a grandson, but it's pretty ridiculous that he was ranked that low I mean. But anyways but it'd be remember that nobody really understood what was going on because he was playing off and having meetings and working through working through. Everybody working through every other aspect of things one time he said don't worry about. McCarthy. because. He's going to hang himself in a year later. He did. You know he knew what was going on. He knew the aspects of things because he was calculated thought about new was where where people were going it was a student of history and that plays a major role. The Eisenhower Administration is is very unique in shaping American of the American ability of superpower unquote. I. Hate that term because we're not a superpower, we are a very powerful country. Yes but. Again, degrade other anyways as different conversation again, different our but the importance is that. At the time during the Cold War, we had a huge problem. So we had. One, we had the of Communism Socialism, the of the gross expansion of. Radical radical oppression and I don't mean that in a negative way But that's what it was. You have Poland being taken back over you have able not giving up countries have invasions. Through Western, Europe to certain points where there were battle lines drawn just not executed. You have the wars all back. And then, and then you know you have you have NATO. So think about that for just a second. Today, we still we still have some of those same problems. The players are a little different, but the ideas are still the same instead of calling it a Cold War we call it a cyber war. We call it something else but there are still tension that goes on this stems all way back all the way back. To One. In War and China becoming a superpower is part of world war. Two in the aftermath of what happened with vacuum power with Russia collapsing the Soviet. Union, collapsing into what it currently is. Very fascinating when you take a holistic look, right right. One thing that that's fascinating to me I, mean. Every few years there's always some sort of confrontation with another country of some sort and people always talk about this specter of you know tensions with North, Korea ratcheting up and. You. Know we we worried about their nuclear capability and it happens every now and then. and. They're all these fears that, oh, the president's provoking this and that, and you look at the Eisenhower years and here is a president that was not afraid to walk to the brink right to the brink. And it's funny because. When people talk about a current president and there's been going on for more than you know the last four years has been going on for a while but whenever there's a Crisis People talk about Oh this president they're bringing us into war and all that and Eisenhower has this reputation for being this wise president and and a a very much earned reputation and yet he was willing. To risk more than all the rest of these guys so. You know how? What made him willing to do that and I, think what what can we learn about how presidents handle crises from what he did That's a great question thinking about it think about it this way when you're in World War Two and you're going through in your conquering back you're up in, you're seeing cities at ninety percent ninety, five, percent Warsaw for example, ninety, five percent destruction, your liberating concentration camps where millions of people were killed coming across those things you already seen the worst of humanity has to offer. And the fact that Truman did drop not one but two atomic weapons nearly only person do that history. the rest of the world should have feared us at that point in time. We, Russia. You know we know that that that China did we know that we we understood that but the reality is, is that it was a real threat to us as well whenever you're talking about the Bay of Pigs, you're talking about the Cuban missile crisis you're talking about in May nineteen sixty, the youtube spy plane being shot down all of these things play a major role. Dulles says that we threatened a threatened North Korea in China. They didn't knock off their their expansion that we would. We would sooner than nuclear weapons I, mean these are all things that people talk about. This is that you know Ron Reagan said a to, but you have peace through strength. That's what some people say. But at the same time he was doing that. It was making sure that we as Americans not just Americans but also Europeans and also Latin. Americans and other people around the world or safe. He talked about peace talked about atoms for peace. You know you're talking about the. Know you're talking about speeches where he says that every every bomb made every made every Warship launched is essentially a theft of people that are poverty that need food. So you have different different messages going on one hand you're preaching a I will do this if I have to but don't force me because I, want to do this over here. I'm a peaceful man I want I've seen the worst manfred not odor looks like, but we can do better together and that's the thing that people forget people to People International. For example, the organization I worked for was started in Nineteen fifty-six in the department the idea that you and I-. Whoever's listening to this podcast have the ability to sit down and reason with each other and take government out of it. Always, have an agenda governments victors of warming. While people do not. So it's something to consider something to remember is that once you break down those walls, those stereotypes, those types of things Very quickly you become friends. In one thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, two, we were sending people into. occupied. In we we still to this day go to Cuba we've been invited to North Korea. We spent time with the go down the list of places that were in I was in the Gaza Strip last year in November whenever they launched the day after I left there, they launched a hundred rockets into into into Jerusalem I mean my mom's been embalming. These are things that we're fighting against because the tyranny of people instead of understanding things were choosing to take the opposite route, right? Right Sir. Our was, yes. I remember one time I think if if I'm not mistaken. He threatened cruised off putting back on the military uniform in leading forces into Russia. Was a conversation they actually had so yeah. No easy. It wasn't.

"Get across the country that's not very fast mobilization. If we're invaded on one side of the other. That's a huge problem. So Nixon in Nineteen forty-six Ike suffered a massive heart attack. And for the reason, I, think that some of the stuff you covered other podcast lot's of pressure going on that was behind the scenes. But it was kind of interesting because it was it was actually Vice President Nixon at the time that had all the governors in town for the Council of Governors and convinced them that it was important to have their congressmen and senators vote for Bill. That's so Nixon played a major role in some of the policies that happened on the Eisenhower administration not to mention the fact that whenever Nixon later on became president we opened China to us he ended the Vietnam. War It was actually the last president that bell budget anybody can argue with me with that but I can show you the numbers. But it is actually what ended up happening. The relationship was was it was interesting Dive the dynamics were interesting but I think at the were very good friends very close. Close enough for David Mary. Maya Angelou. The seventy. So that was pretty interesting whenever you go down those paths and see where things go. Right absolutely I think it makes such a fascinating contrast. You have the hero of World War Two, and then you have the young up and coming. Controversial senator who has quite a track record of I mean he was an attack dog that's the phrase that use. And one thing. People talk about how how Nixon was. The first kind of modern vice president who had significant responsibilities so much that he was debating Khrushchev and yet they don't give the credit to Eisenhower for being the first modern presidents really empower president. Well, there's Eisenhower's administration was the president I mean there's lots of things on the list at some point in time fuel a but the accomplishments that happened on the is how Eisenhower Administration are pretty remarkable. We still today and Nixon had a major role. Nation was absolutely doing things like debating Khrushchev was absolutely involved in the politics and policies that were going on one hundred percent. I once watched a documentary on Nixon and it talked about the famous slash infamous checkers speech. And there the point was that the narrator had made was that it was almost as if so the assumption was that Nixon would step down from the ticket but he took the decision out of anyone's hands including Eisenhower's and ask the the you know the viewers to telegram, write letters to the Republican Party to keep him on the ticket, and it's this example of Nixon being shrewd is that true from what you've heard and how did that all factor into their relationship? So when I was in. High School. I did a report on him. because. I figured it would be pretty easy to do, and actually it was actually very hard to do. You know my my aunt was was helpful. But for the most part, it was one of those things where. You have to understand the man's dynamics and understanding who he is in words from. President Nixon was a man with rate emission but more importantly as he was very good at what he was doing and very, very, very smart always probably always smartest guy into room. When he was in high school, he was the president of his is. School what is that called was ordered looking for? A high school. Student Body so high school, he was a president of the student body. When he was in college, he was President of Student Body. When he wants to do coach, he was the president of the student body. When you went to glow, he was the president of the student body. The man only succeeded at what he did and there's a reason for them. When you calculate, you think through things you don't get to where you were at that age unless you're very good at what you do and that speaks is just a great example of someone that wanted to be on the ticket understood that this was a historic historical moment we were in the middle of one of the biggest. non-battle battles that we've ever been in we're talking the difference between fighting, for freedom. Fighting for a republic fighting for democracy type aspect of life and fighting four communists and the idea of socialism in that, the government can tell you how you should spend your money in. Do what you're doing what job that is what was actually going on in Russia the fact that Stalin killed more people than Hillary did is something that was no. We forget. We forget communism is one of the things the leading causes of death of any political movement in the history of the world I know show view is that is factual. And you know that that's what we were at the actual definition of what we have been fighting against since that time and even today we still fight against it. I, mean we pretend like we do. But he is the the idea that we as as people have Neyla Borad's. That the government cannot tell us that we are free. We are free automatically, and then you have a group of people that are oppressing those rights one that are fighting to keep you free. Right. Why would you wanNA leave that situation especially with someone like crucial in office because you got to remember the other time Khrushchev. So on a Crusade of of righteousness as well because whenever you you're in the other side taking the other point of view is that you're trying to ensure that people have equal equality. In you're making sure that you have that the problem with socialism and communism might. Is. Throughout history of a very few very few people. End Up with the. Marxist communism is great on paper but once you implemented someone has implemented and that person has the power. That's. Right. The cult of personality and so on. Insert. Surely the thing is is of everybody was equal and everybody was saying and everybody thought the same way it would work. Fine. The problem is is that there's always one that doesn't think the same way, right? And Center mass, right? Exactly. An impression happens. Anyway. That's a different conversation for different Hampshire Sir. Sir Well, but those issues were obviously what was going on that that forms what Eisenhower was trying to do and was the Cold War. Consensus was that this is what we had to stop. And it's fascinating because Truman he comes into office. End of World War Two, and then the Cold War is this brand new war and Eisenhower was really the first president that. Had to deal with the Cold War right from the start of his administration. So he is. People. Detaches Book President Creation Really could apply to that whole era including Eisenhower and of course him in and Truman I think were such a big part of what they were doing was creating us leadership in that effort. and. So in what ways do you think Eisenhower, was really a a different version of containment from his predecessor. How did he change the paradigm of that especially since he had the solarium meetings and everything Well. See. The interesting thing about the is administration is number one. If you think about it by itself you think about. When he left office, he was considered the moral compass of the of the country right He was considered a do nothing president. Apparently, they play more golf. Than that, he spent time in office right now. How many did we hear.

"Then said, well, why don't you switch your Mo has to quartermaster. Switched over, he started as a tank commander went to infantry. Then moved over into quartermaster went command school ended up. Placing first clashed in both both aspects of and then went back into infantry again, and so it's it's kind of interesting when you talk about our careers and how we have to do things in shift and shape. It's no different from a farm kid from Abilene Kansas. Right now, what do you think about Eisenhower's background and his family life? How did that influence his leadership style throughout his career? So midwesterners just in general. I always say that we are. We are measured people. We we tend to be very thoughtful whenever we do think sometimes we have temporarily he surely had a temper There's no doubt about that. But for the most part I, think that that his background his his. His importance to education doing the right thing and making sure that you had the ideas and thought through things fully before you execute them I think was one of those things that that really shaved his career. You have patent saying you know we need to go all the way into Russia. You have you have. Montgomery. Sitting there saying Oh. Gosh I want to be the first night sitting there saying. We need to work together. This is how we do it. This is the plan. This is the measure. More to their during the day. He actually wrote a letter to my great grandmother saying that you know if anything goes wrong, it is my fault. It takes all responsibility. Takes. Everything off everybody else. It in fact, it was it was. It was actually. Signed wrong. The date was wrong because he had so much pressure going Montreal and eventually. On June fifth. June six have happened and it was an absolute. Amazing amazing accomplishment when you think about it, but more importantly is that one of my favorite that he says is that. Plans me nothing but planning means everything and so the thought process of what will happen with this, what will have that effect that they made a fake harbor? Out of boats and pontoons, all of these things that you could get supplies into France all of those things played a major role. All of that stuff stems from not only understanding what fair values are having empathy understanding what what the next step would be I think that carried over into his presidency as well. Right now when you look at World War Two, you you you read about, Patton, you read about Macarthur and all the great military figures of that time Bradley I mean, you know the list goes on the class that the stars fell on and as they say and yet it was Eisenhower and of course, we have to say General Marshall and it was Eisenhower who became the president among all of them. What about him was was different from all the rest. That's a great question. I don't think I've ever been asked that question before. The truth is, is that besides Bradley think about the Egos and the sense of I'm a warrior I am important that went on during World War Two you have. Everything that was happening in the jetties front. Where no matter what was happening I? I. Was the one that was important. Anchors called of the damn aid ever. but never given the credit of what what he was able to do his strategies when the war started in one, thousand, nine, thirty, nine, I was Carl. You know by nineteen forty one he was to star actually planning out what was going to happen in. Japan? And then was moved into the front, the the European data, which is interesting. All of those things happen by themselves not because I was the guy going out and battlefield but because he was the guy that was thinking through what would happen if something else happened to be honest with you as exactly what you're doing? But it really is it goes back to your thought process how you're learning through things. One thing is, is that one of his first assignments every less less left-wing account Kinda like Ole tes. which was the last person to replace. Ronald, he actually became a coach. For his local is local base. For football I mean all of this stuff has do a strategy. Everybody was understood that he had the ability to think through the problems all the way through again, coming back to the presidency does follow him all the way through where it was able to do that. In addition to that, you believe that it didn't matter got credited songs the job got done and we talk about that all the time in hyperbole. But the truth is that that's how you get successful in life in general is that you don't care about where the credit goes. You just care if the job gets done and being a leader is making sure other people feel. And people are respected and most importantly, and this is something we forget today is being her. Because as much as we think about our own goes, it doesn't matter being in a leadership position as long as you. If you have people that that here you in you're hearing them you may not agree with what was the decision has but at least you've been heard, your point has been made and then the next step can be taken. Right, and I think that that's one of those qualities that as far as what you just said, not wanting the credit but wanting the job. Then that's one of those qualities that people want in a leader but aren't guaranteed in a leader because so many people in politics want the credit. And to be honest with you. Again, if he wasn't from Kansas I, don't think he would have had the same same type of thought process. is a different world there you know back then especially in Kansas, very humble background he knows he knows that people need to be heard. This is where this is roots in. Oh, his mother was was was very religious. It was taught to the most important thing is that he really believed that everybody opinion mattered we as individuals can accomplish some things but us as a group can accomplish great things. Right and one thing interesting about Eisenhower you have a a a figure who was who had worked and collaborated with just incredible figures of that time mentioned you know MacArthur. Mentioned Marshall, and also with other presidents, you know getting to know I mean it was FDR who put him that the task of? And then Truman and Kennedy Nixon what were those relationships like and I. AM. Very. Curious about your take on his relationship with Nixon. There's been so much written about that and for you it's it's for your family. It's a matter of family since Eisenhower Nixon families are married are related through marriage so So, so So take almost got replaced President Nixon almost got replace as vice president during during the first term but. I decided not to, and for whatever reason there is own, it doesn't matter. But. Over the time over over the time that I was in office as united. States. Vice President Nixon at the time was an incredible instrument of getting things done whenever I was for example in the hospital. You know at Walter, Reed having heart attack in nineteen fifty five was the first time. They tried to pass the interstate highway act right and fence. which is our national highway system than we currently and failed availed the because they believed it was a states right issue a tenth amendment issue didn't matter. They voted the interstate commerce caused it was it was a state issue stays problem which at that time it took fourteen days to.

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"Our guest today is Merrill Eisenhower Atwater and I'm very excited to have him as our guest. We just did a series a two parter on President Eisenhower and Meryl is the great grandson of President Eisenhower, which is pretty pretty great that I. Think you're probably the first relative of a president we've ever interviewed on this podcast. So this is this is the first. And you're also the CEO of people to People International. So Merrill I just wanted to thank you for joining us and just sharing your insights. Thank you for having me. It's actually an honor to be on this. PODCAST. This is one of my first podcast over on to be honest with you so. Fun Okay Wonderful. Yes. So First of all. You. Know it was great to study your great grandfather and learn about his background. Obviously, we focused on him as a president during the Cold War but also. I really liked the idea of having relatives of a president just because it's a reminder that well, presidents are people too. They have families like everyone else they you know go through life just like everyone else so. You Know I. Guess You probably have heard a lot of stories growing up and about President Eisenhower's background and one of my favorite quotes of his is the quote where he says we were poor family but the glory of it was that we didn't the glory of America's that we didn't know about it. So what can you tell me about about Eisenhower's just his family background and things that you've heard growing up. Absolutely. Absolutely. So you know we were just talking about going down I seventy. You actually pass the presidential library out there in the middle of Kansas and Abilene the thing is, is that you gotta remember when Eisenhower was born. So it when he was born was ninety. Spent most of almost all except for three years of his childhood. Abilene Kansas, which is a unique situation by itself Whenever he was younger. You add things like the Great Depression you had. You know the dust bowl but a lot of that stuff happened after he left his house. Thing is back. Then rail was king cattle was king. Out in the West and things were a little bit different is dad worked on the rail. Rail Company and also worked at Creamery. Is Mom was a stay at home mom the interesting thing about Ida Eisenhower his mother is that she actually came all the way from Virginia all the way across the country by yourself. To Kansas where he went to Compton and actually ended up getting a degree. Which is unusual college degree in fact, which is extremely. Rare for women especially at that age, but you know just to be. By herself having no other support doing herself is pretty phenomenal. David in there and when you're talking about poor, there's a saying that we say in Kansas that person was from the wrong side of the tracks in literally there's eight track in the middle of our lane that divides the poor side with the wealthy side and it is An Ashley Visible Light? When he was growing up, he used to do audited jobs throughout his high school in an earlier time everything from Clinton Gardens to sell a extra food at the downtown to to make ends meet to feeding his mother used to make it. You know seven loaves breads twice a week. In order to to feed all the kids in addition to that Wrong. Side of the tracks also meant a lot of discrimination because you were poor and it was interesting because. Place called the Stele Mansion out there where he wasn't even allowed to own the porch because he was so poor. And it was it was kind of interesting to see and learn about that as I was growing up as well But really back then when you're talking about why it's so unique and different mid the mid Western values especially back then. And even today is a little different than the rest of the. Country things are a little slower out here. We take our time. We'll get things done. Our words are bombed in. UH, there's not a lot of time forty that happens but the most important things is the values that are still by. By his mother, really not his father's father was working on the rail which means all over the country back and forth years line. That the his mother actually is by far one of the greatest unwritten women in history and facts One time nineteen forty-five. She was she somehow got the mother of the Year award by this group of people that that did that and she said, are you how you know how are you? So you know impressed with your son and she goes which want because they all ended up being you know multimillionaires or they end up being very successful in their fields with..

Betty Ford's Healing Legacy: A Conversation with Susan Ford Bales

"Today, we're joined by Susan Ford Welcome. Susan. You are aid author, photo journalist. The youngest of four children to President and Mrs Ford. We are appropriately here at the Betty Ford Center, where you're also on the board of trustees of the Hazel Betty. Ford Foundation. Your mother's legacy. was as a breast cancer survivor and advocate, and as a woman in recovery, and as an advocate for being a woman in recovery. How has the legacy of your mother? Affected your role here at the Betty, Ford? Center. Wow Her shoes were really big to fill your So when she stepped down from the board and I became chairman. I. Think it was harder than living in the White House actually because. We mother and I come from two different parts of recovery. She is a patient and the family member. So we have very different opinions of things than and what's important to us One of the things that she made me do, which was extremely painful with sit on every city every single committee. And participate on my witness finance. Finance. But I learned it. Sure. And so I feel like she did a great job of preparing me to be chairman. So it's it's just we come at it from a different angle in a different perspective family and children's services is extremely important to me because that's how I was affected by this disease. Did you come to the the role of being the chair here at Betty? Ford, did you come to that reluctantly? No because I had been on the board for cheese, probably fifteen years I'm it had just been a long process Mother was gracious and allowed me to raise my children before I came on the board because I was pregnant when the. Betty. Ford. Center open. So. I don't think I came on the board until my youngest was first grade or second grade, and so she gave me some time to get my children raised in at least in school because it required several days travel and all of that in childcare and all the complications that we go through to participate in something like that. Let's go back a little bit and talk about the history of the Betty, Ford Center there's a lot of people who think that when your mother found her own recovery in the late seventy s, she went to the Betty Ford Center. It wasn't even here now was, how did the Betty Ford Center come to be. Johnson from Eisenhower Medical Center decided that. They wanted to have a treatment and it had been in the plan at Eisenhower for some time, they wanted to have an alcoholic treatment center on the campus. and. So Leonard firestone mother's dear, friend was also on the board of Eisenhower. And so Johnson Leonard. Kinda. Tag. Team. Durham. and. She was really in a recovery about four years. But she agreed and I and I thought that was a very courageous step to be so early recovery. So she came to all of us children and she said. When I'm long gone. You're the ones that are going to have to live with the fact that your mother had A. Drug and alcohol treatment. Centre, named after you. How do you feel about that? Wow, and we also we don't care. I mean. It's what a great Lexi you know. She was one of the first to step out and and share her story So once we got past that it was just a matter of mother and Leonard Raising the money. To get this place started and of course. Way? Back, then in the early nineteen, Eighty S. The Hazel and foundation played a role also in the birthplace. Can you share just a little bit about that? Well, mother spent quite a bit a time when to Hazelton, because Hazelton had done it. So well, they were probably the leaders in the in the sense that they had been around the longest And it was successful There's lots of treatment centers that haven't been successful. Some other went back and spent probably close to a week there visiting with counselors visiting with a staff talking, how do you do this? What did you do? Right? What did you do on? Why? What makes Hazelton successful because we basically wanted to copy what they had done, but in a different location sure who would have ever imagined decades later. The two organizations would come together and I WANNA to come back to that in just a minute. But First Susan I want to address an issue that. Always bothers me and then set the the Betty Ford. Center is seen as a place for. The rich and famous for the exclusive for those who can pay out of pocket. But that's not at all what's happening here is no and less than one percent of the patients here are what we would think of as celebrities. Yes. We've had some celebrities, but so was Hazelton I mean. So as other places everybody needs treatment, it doesn't matter what you do that determines you need treatment. So, and they don't get treated any different than. My Mother didn't get treated any different Long Beach. The women, she shared a room with. So it's the same.

Eisenhower Matrix and When You Should Launch Your Show

"What is going on a friend today I want to share with you a question that I got recently about whether you should launch right now during a pandemic, and while this world is just really a crazy place. We've had riots. We've had the pandemic. Of course you'd have tons of other things that are just really odd for near normal midway checkpoint through the year so I got this question the other day that was a good one, because sure a lot of people who haven't launched it, or maybe they're thinking about launching, or maybe they know that they WANNA launch. Launch. They need help with a strategy or the need. Help some of the technical aspects, and they're letting that be an excuse to get them going and get the moving the right direction when they know this is the podcast is something they want to do. They know it's GonNa make sense for them. They know it makes sense for their business. They know they get a lot of value out of out of it, and they know they can give a lot of value more importantly to the world doesn't make sense to launch a podcast during this pandemic during this. Time of economic corrections. What a lot of people I guess the politically correct term it according to Internet experts. Honestly, I think yes, and it's not just because I'm a producer and yeah I. Make my living off of helping people with podcast. Doubt about it, but it's yes, because my question to you is what are you going to be doing where you're GonNa? Be when this is all over, and are you going to be further along, or are you going to be kind of in the same spot with the same platforms or the same place? You feel like you are right now. Your Business personally for me, I've taken this as a way as place to grow my knowledge in other places that week at such as facebook. Advertising platforms like spotify ads. A lot talk, allow learning and testing that space in honestly, this is the time for people who are smart to actually grow and continue to expand where you can in a podcasting is one of those things I don't want you to be stuck on the fence. Who you think launching there are during a pandemic doesn't make sense if you have the ability to grow and expand right now, and you're leading the pandemic excuse, or maybe even just like I. Don't have time for it. Stop you. I think that's really really ignorant. I think that's really really not the best thing for you. If you look long term in your life or in your business so. So! I had a coach teach me. Something recently shot to Greg Hickman from the all agencies and amazing guy and slowly I've learned from Greg. Is something called? The Eisenhower Matrix, and the Eisenhower made is consistent, consists of like four boxes right on the top. You have urgent and not urgent, and then on the left hand side. You have to think of a four part boxer Google Eisenhower Matrix. You have important, not important. podcasting falls into the important, but not urgent bucket for a lot of people. It's something that they know they should do. They know they want to do the. No, it makes sense, but they don't have. They know there's no timeframe on. Any pushing you to podcast with. There's really only really urgency comes from is from yourself internally nine times out of ten from what I've seen, so you don't want to let those needle moving tasks or needle moving objectives fall to the wayside and doing this personally my own business until Greg called me out on it and I credit him for that 'cause. I couldn't see with my own eyes so if you're being me. And being stubborn about and focusing on things that are urgent and important, or maybe urgent, not important right now. If that's where a lot of your time is, then I would challenge you to go and take a look at the Eisenhower Matrix and go and see if you really want to do a podcast. What makes sense with you for you and you are saying you don't have the time for it. Flat out all of the things you're doing and put them on one of those four buckets. You have urgent, not important but urgent. That's like. Email and things like that. You have urgent and important. Those are like creating content every week. That's like fulfilment for your clients. That's you know things like that. Those are the main two for me, and then you have -portant, but not urgent. That's like. Maybe ads campaign or building a Webinar or launching a podcast or launch a YouTube channel or going to this event. Maybe one Kobe's over the pandemics over, so we got important, not urgent urgent. Important not important, but urgent, and then not important, not urgent, which should not be on your list to do it all

"eisenhower" Discussed on Trent365

"The Eisenhower principle as you might imagine, was developed by former President Dwight D Eisenhower as a way to prioritize, he's decision making, and what he did was divide things into four buckets, based on a Matrix of urgent and important, and so what he would do save something was urgent and important that to be done now because urgent, and because it's important, it should be done probably you if something was urgent, but not important that it still had to be done gone now, but that is something that you can delegate this someone else. She didn't necessarily have to. To do it yourself if something was important, but not so urgent, then that's something that would be done by you potentially, but you can schedule that later on daren't have to do it today. And if something was not urgent and not important just to get done at all, comes off the lease, so as a way of prioritizing your task list I'm a big fan of just making a list of all the things I've got to do. But taking the next step and putting into one of those four buckets based on the Eisenhower Matrix of important versus origin. I think that's actually a pretty smart way to get stuff dumb, because I think subconsciously probably a lot of times we do that anyway, but if you have a structured system and process where you put everything in one of those four buckets then I think it's actually probably a much more efficient to get stuff done or put a link to the Eisenhower Matrix Communist blow something I've actually never heard of to be honest, but I just found out about it today, so I thought I'd share it with you. That is for today. I. Do thank you for your time and we'll be back again tomorrow..

"Welcomed or guest today, Hector Baretto Hector form headed up the United States. Small Business Administration today. He's the chairman of the Latino Coalition. Thanks for waking up early with us. Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader very. Very charismatic you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

California went from bending the curve to a major coronavirus surge. What happened?

"New Tonight for the fourth time in one week. Los Angeles County is breaking its own record for the number of people that are in the hospital with corona virus, which also means. California is inching closer to surpassing. New, York's record of having the most cases in the country. What went so wrong in California Sarah Gardner is out front. When you're sleeping on your belly. The staff at this California. Hospital is nearing exhaustion every minute I think about covid nineteen, a video diary from inside Eisenhower, health, Rancho Mirage nurse Catherine Davis says she's used to seeing one death a year in her unit. With seven hundred Cova patients treated here so far she's now seeing forty deaths. We would ensure that a patient did not die alone. So you know, we would take turns spending time with them and holding their hand and talking to them, doctors knew they had the beds to treat the surge, but not the staff when we heard that the next wave of relief might come in and two weeks three weeks four weeks. You know that's when things become a little bit desperate. They asked the federal government for help, and it arrived an airforce medical team of about twenty help shoulder the unending load. The stress here repeated all over California. So how did we get here? The state was the first to announce a stay at home order that was march nineteenth. This is a moment we need to make tough decisions. Seven weeks later, the governor reopened the state on. On May ain't. You have bent the curve, but that wasn't to be by early June. The seven day average for new daily coronavirus cases was more than twenty, six hundred by July, Eleventh at more than ninety, four, hundred, more than two hundred fifty percent, increase and rewarding. You are renowned epidemiologist. What went wrong? In California we opened up too soon. We didn't have the virus totally under control, experts agree. Residents and local governments got complacent. Back on the field now case in point, three suburban counties near La all lifted their mask requirements under heavy pressure from angry residents. None of this is based on science, but rather an affair is political agenda to silence, the people and Strip freedoms from hardworking Americans now. hard-working Americans. All three counties are seeing Cova D- Surge And Hospital? Beds are filling out and that's frightening 'cause. Where do we go from? There are patients telling you healthy might have gotten it. Yes, well, some of them are partners. Some of them have. Gone Out and gone to parties, no masks but Los Angeles County did and still does have strict mask, requirements, tickets, or even being issued. If you don't comply and yet, it's still the epicenter of the California surge. How much worse does it have to get in Los Angeles? Before you feel compelled to issue another stay at home order well I think we're on the brink of that. People are not following the rules or not wearing masks or not social distancing among them. California's forty and under who make up more than half of the state's new cases. Also hard hit the Latino community which makes up a third of the state's population, but more than half of Cova infections. Sometimes it's mom and dad's work experience that has brought them into contact with it, and then it goes through the whole family. Experts say fixing all this comes only one way you have to just shut down for now. I think they'd is our only way out. And that is really depressing for almost anyone everyone worrying about the economy coming back, but as a couple of people told us you have to have a healthy society to have a healthy economy and one of the big issues is testing used to take a couple of days now you can take up to a week just to get an appointment when you get your results back as a whole different problem

"Any other Republican. Hopeful you -ssume that he would win his party's nomination and campaign against incumbent democratic. President Harry Truman, but taft had it all wrong. I President Truman was eligible for another term, but he didn't want it in November. Truman told his inner circle that he would not stand for reelection. Truman's presidency had battled several scandals and gotten entangled in an unpopular war in Korea. He probably couldn't win another election and he knew it, but the president swore his staff to secrecy in hopes that he would have time to find a strong candidate to run in his stead. Second. It was not a certainty that taft would get the Republican nomination. While Taft had lined up many party delegates in his corner, he still had to win several primary elections as one of his friends pointed out to him. You're the King Bob, but I the ACE, as far as getting votes is concerned. Over eight hundred citizens for Eisenhower clubs across the nation proved statement. This grassroots movement organized rallies calling for Ike to enter the presidential race. They didn't have the backing of the Republican Party and their candidate was still in Europe but the citizens for Eisenhower Movement got the attention of Party leaders like Thomas Dewey Henry Cabot Lodge and her Brownell. Do we send ice. Old Friend Lucius Clay to talk with. Klay pointed to the grassroots. Campaign is only one of the many reasons that Ike should resign his post in Europe and run for office. I began to warm to the idea, though he made it clear to Klay and others that he wouldn't be a puppet for Republican leadership. If Ike was going to enter politics, you would be on his own terms and for the good of the country. In December nineteen, forty, one I to his brother about his dilemma, the general stated what bothers me is that if I criticize what is now being done or not being done by governmental officials? I'm forced, asked myself. What am I doing about it? What do I intend doing about? A month later I answered his own questions in January. Nineteen fifty two eisenhower released a statement that while he could not currently come home to campaign. He would accept the Republican. Party nomination if voters offered it.

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"Have to face. Eisenhower didn't have one huge crisis that allowed him to make his mark the way. The depression gave FDR implement his new deal policies. I think that adjusting one's evaluation for context is critical to evaluating presidents. So the question is less what. The thing that he accomplished and more, how did he handle the challenges that he faced? Throughout his presidency, Eisenhower was faced with multiple crises. That Risk Nuclear War American credibility. Think of the list. Korea Taiwan. The sewage canal Iran. Guatemala Vietnam Lebanon Hungary and the U2 incident. Several Times Eisenhower was willing to go to the brink of nuclear war. There's a fair debate about the risks Eisenhower. It was willing to take whether he should have been willing to risk so much. But again it's hard to argue with the results. Under Eisenhower America kept the peace and maintained its strategic advantage, just as Eisenhower had intended. He worked hard to maintain stability in the Cold War world of delicate balance in the age of nuclear missiles. Like few presidents before him, he walked a tightrope. But his emphasis on balance paid off. One of his great achievements was to reduce the budget deficit while protecting America. Eisenhower reduced defense spending as a percentage of total spending from seventy percent of the total budget in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, fifty one percent in nineteen, sixty one. And yet according to historian, John Lewis Gaddis quote. These cuts produced no net reduction in American military strength relative to that of the Soviet Union, if anything United States was in a stronger position vis-a-vis its major competitor at the end of Eisenhower's term than it was at the beginning. Eisenhower even ended up signing three balanced budgets feet, not duplicated until the Nineteen Ninety S. Eisenhower was a man who knew what he was doing on. The world stage here remained calm during crises refrained from overreaction, and he acted decisively when he had to. He succeeded in leveraging unpredictability, intervening in some areas and not intervening and others. He was willing to gamble with the highest stakes, and throughout all that time he never showed his hand. It still doesn't seem clear. Whether Eisenhower was really willing to make good on his threats to use the bomb. His son who served in the White House during his presidency, said quote I never knew dad would have used nuclear weapons. He would never say. His aides including. General Andrew Goodpaster and his brother Milton disagree on whether Eisenhower was bluffing. All of this is a sign of a master Brinkman. On the whole, it seems that he made the right choices and achieve the outcomes that he had wanted. He did maintain America's commitments, Vietnam, his decision to not intervene with ground troops was a wise one as it gave America a much needed respite from war. After. He ended the Korean War. America only suffered. One has realty in combat during the. Eisenhower, administration despite facing multiple dangerous confrontations. Meanwhile he got China to back down over Taiwan twice while affirming our movement to Taipei. In Eisenhower's words quote. The United States never lost a soldier or foot of grounded my administration by God. It didn't happen. I'll tell you that. Of course he was not perfect. Perhaps he misjudged American reaction to. Like Sputnik. But he did so with good intentions, remaining even Keel in times of panic. Ultimately as I said before, it's hard to argue with results. Eisenhower set out with the goal of strengthening America for a long term struggle in the most cost effective way possible. He felt that the best way was to keep spending low rely heavily on nuclear weapons. Maintain the peace and give Americans the space. They needed to prosper to build a foundation needed to stain the effort against the Soviet Union. Eisenhower largely succeeded in these goals. And the American people were better off for it. Unemployment and inflation remained low personal income increased by forty five percent. Americans were buying homes, cars and TV's. When he headed off power to President Kennedy. The nation was stronger and better prepared to bear the burden as leader of the free world. Dwight D Eisenhower was more than a transitional figure. He was probably the last president of his kind a military hero up of politics. He was a great American warrior who having fought history's worst score dedicated his life. His story reminds us. That leadership isn't just about glory. It isn't just about image. It's also about the quiet determination to get things done regardless.

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"Right after the coup was on initiated by the CIA. Eisenhower authorized to American fighter jets to provide air support. On June twenty, seven, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, four, Arbenz resigned and fled the nation. In his place was in American, backed junta that reversed arbenz reforms and installed a military dictatorship. Left wing resistance to this regime developed and led to the Guatemalan civil war from nineteen sixty to nineteen sixty six. Just as in Iran, many historians consider the connection between the Soviets and the Guatemalans to be shaky at best although there were strong leftist elements in the country with sympathy for communism. And it is true that the Soviets were promoting communist revolution abroad too many cold warriors, and those who oppose Communism Eisenhower's actions were justified, his hardball tactics to stop a ruthless ideology, and whether or not most day. Arbenz had close Soviet ties is immaterial. But detractors point out that those moves fostered resentment among the Iranians and those in Latin America. They argue that while the new look policy was designed to roll back the Soviet Union on the cheap. The United States would incur long term costs that it had yet to foresee. And they also argue that America was violating the sovereignty of other nations, which was especially unsavory, since in the case of Guatemala, it involved corporate interests including those tied to Secretary Dulles. Personally, I do think it's important to remember who the United States was dealing with. In the Soviet Union America was dealing with a ruthless regime that was oppressing millions of people and seeking to expand abroad. And with an ideology that was based on class, not the fundamental rules of nation states. It had little respect for international norms. This was the assessment of the Soviet Union that both Democrats and Republicans agreed upon. Whether or not one agrees with Eisenhower's actions here it's hard to imagine containing such an aggressive ideology without having to make tough decisions like these were, it seemed necessary to preempt the Soviets from gaining any followers in the third world. These are the difficult choices that a superpower leading the free world must confront that many other countries don't have to face. And while the regime's installed by the United States worth or -Tarian, it is rarely asked what would have happened if socialist regimes even if they were democratically elected persisted in those countries. Perhaps? Such regimes would have devolved into socialist dictatorships with stagnating economies, leaving them far worse off. Of course, all these points will continue to be debated. I said earlier that Eisenhower's presidency was one of crises that the popular image of the Nineteen Fifties of I love Lucy and leave it to beaver actually belies the dangers that it faced dangers that always involved the threat of nuclear war, well to crises would erupt in nineteen, fifty, four and fifty five that would test Eisenhower's resolve and his new look policy. In Southeast Asia. The French were waging in Vietnam. One of its colonies suppressant independence movement, but it faced stiff resistance led by communist leader Ho. Chi Minh. Hose efforts were aided in varying degrees by the Soviets and. By the spring of Nineteen, fifty four, the French and the Vietnamese were fighting in the city of the NBN Fu. Dulles advised Eisenhower to increase support for the French which he did. By the end of the year, the United States had supplied three hundred thousand small arms and spent one billion dollars to support the French eighty percent of the total cost of the War America was basically underwriting Francis. War in Indochina, many of Eisenhower's advisers believed that the domino theory was at work here if Communists got a foothold in Vietnam, then the whole region would as well Eisenhower believed this himself, but he also was leery about American involvement for two reasons. First, he felt it. Put the US in the position of defending colonialism. He reportedly said that it was all part of a quote. Frantic desire of the French to remain a world power. Eisenhower knew that this was not a good luck and could. The Third World Away from the West and towards the Soviets second. He didn't think that the war could be won. The French were having trouble against the Vietnamese who had the advantage of fighting at home and tropical jungles. The man who led the invasion of Normandy during world, war, two knew that this would be a nightmare of a place to fight. He hesitated to commit Americans to a conflict without a clear path to victory. In his words quote, I had no intention of using united. States forces in any limited action when the force employed would probably not be decisive effectively. The French suffered a devastating defeat at the NBA in Fu in nineteen, fifty, four, soon after France left Vietnam, which became independent. It also partitioned between the communist in the north and the anti-communist in the south. There was now even greater pressure and Eisenhower to prevent a communist foothold in North Vietnam. Remember less than five years earlier in Nineteen forty-nine China had fallen and four years earlier in nineteen fifty. The Communists had invaded Korea. There was this real fear that communism was really spreading and that if not stopped, it could continue to spread like a cancer around the world. The military draft contingency plans that may have included the use of tactical nuclear weapons which would have been consistent with the new policy. Members of Congress Eisenhower's zone cabinet and French diplomats were clamoring for action to remove Communist forces in Vietnam and vice president. Nixon suggested that American boots on the ground might be necessary. Like any president in the Cold War, there was pressure to not be soft on communism. But Eisenhower was supremely confident in his own abilities. He would not bow to that pressure. He knew that even in a zero sum competition between the superpowers you had to pick and choose your battles wisely, and wasn't that what the new policy was all about, wasn't it about offsetting Soviet power not by confronting its areas of strength, but countering where it was week. At a national security meeting in April twenty ninth nineteen, fifty four is in. How're announced his decision? He refused to escalate America's involvement in the region especially when it came to ground forces. In doing so eisenhower made a fateful decision. He avoided consuming his presidency with the same conflict that ruined Linden Johnson's presidency, a decade and a half later. It is likely that it preserved his reputation among future historians, especially as they studied the costs that America incurred from the Vietnam War, and again it was an example of Eisenhower's new look policy, the parting from perimeter defense in refusing to intervene or rely on ground trips whenever the Communists made gains. But as stated earlier, the new policy did call for other measures of deterrence. Eisenhower didn't fully disengaged diplomatically from Southeast Asia. He affirmed America's support for the South Vietnamese regime under no Dinh Diem despite DMZ. Penchant for authoritarianism, also under Eisenhower the CIA engaged in a propaganda campaign that's spread misinformation against the Communists and falsely threatened that America was considering nukes in Vietnam again. The new look strategy of reliance on the threat of the nuclear option. Although, Eisenhower wisely dodged a bullet in Vietnam, it was a difficult situation that would not be resolved during his administration. A second big.

"eisenhower" Discussed on This American President

"Passive. Do nothing president. Well, JFK would make that image and issue in the campaign. He accused the Eisenhower Administration and by Association Vice President Nixon of standing still during the nineteen fifties. He cited the Soviets accomplishments in space as a sign that America was lagging behind. The also claimed that there was a missile gap that we were being outmatched in nuclear and conventional capabilities. and. He argued that Eisenhower had allowed. The Communists get a foothold in Cuba. As you can imagine, Eisenhower took these criticisms too hard. He knew that. If there was a missile gap, it was in America's favor since it was far head of Soviet military capability, especially with nuclear weapons. From Eisenhower's perspective Kennedy had either gotten bad information over lying. In fact under Eisenhower America's nuclear arsenal went from about one thousand atomic bombs to about twenty thousand total nuclear weapons. And he felt for the new look policy that trying to outmatch the Soviets everywhere was foolish. And he felt that Kennedy was in over his head that he had some real nerve as an inexperienced junior senator, claiming that he could do eisenhower is better than him. Eisenhower set quote. I'll do anything to avoid time over my seat and the country to Kennedy. It really irritated. Eisenhower when people said that he was passive about national defense, and he said quote, the idea of them charging me with not being interested in defense, dammit I spent my whole life being concerned with the defense of our country. Unfortunately for the President JFK's message was resonating. A new decade was coming. The nineteen sixties and Americans were starting to crave energetic leadership. And John F. Kennedy exuded energy and youthful vigor. Say, said I accept the nomination of the Democratic, party. I accepted without reservation. And with only one obligation. The obligation to devote every effort. On my mind and spirit. To lead our. Party back to victory. And on nation to greatness. Kennedy's charged that the nation was lying at anchor drift was the clear criticism, not just of Nixon but of Eisenhower. Also, it didn't help that. Eisenhower unwittingly damaged his chosen candidates chances. Nixon was largely running on his experience as vice president and his participation in the administration, but when one journalist asked Eisenhower. EP adopted any of Nixon's ideas. He said quote. If you! Give me a week. I might think of one I don't remember. The Kennedy Campaign Gleefully reminded everyone that Eisenhower seemed to be admitting that Nixon didn't play as big of a role in the administration as he was claiming. That November JFK defeated Richard Nixon in one of the closest elections in American history. Kennedy would become the thirty fifth president of the United States. Remember when I said second terms are usually rough. Well. It was the same for Eisenhower. Yes, he had had his successes like in Lebanon. Yes, he had gotten back down once again. The Taiwan Strait. But the perception that he had been asleep at the wheel, which allowed the Soviets to take the lead in the space race persistent. And the entire Youtube episode dashed any hopes for legacy making peace treaty. And it seemed that with Kennedy's election. The American people were endorsing his view that the country had been standing still. To Eisenhower's critics. His presidency was eight years of drift. After years of holding down the defense budget, preventing what he felt could be national bankruptcy, and getting bogged down in foreign. Wars Eisenhower feared that it Kennedy presidency would be a disaster. Kennedy was ambitious and he opposed massive retaliation in favor of flexible response, which Eisenhower felt might to more wars. He lamented quote all I've been trying to do for eight years has gone down the drain. But Eisenhower worried about something else. He still believed very much in his policies, especially new look. He believed that it had kept the peace and allowed for unprecedented prosperity. But he saw that Americans might be abandoning it. He feared that eating new look meant America would turn to deficit spending. He's still feared that America would bankrupt itself trying to outmatch the Soviets. He saw the outcry and the call for massive spending after the Soviets launched sputnik. He also feared that relying less on nuclear weapons would make war more not less likely. He worried that the new and more Popular Flexible Response Doctrine with tempt American policymakers to use force especially since the new president-elect was a supporter of the doctrine. Eisenhower knew that the cold. War meant that things had changed. America couldn't demobilize. In years past. But he also worried about what that meant. He worried about the impact government defense. Spending would have on American society. As he said in his famous speech years earlier, he believed that defense spending had an opportunity cost that it robbed from American productivity innovation. Eisenhower crafted his farewell address with all of this in mind. It ranks among the most famous by modern president in history, and is perhaps the most famous farewell address after George Washington's. It was delivered on January seventeenth nineteen sixty one three days before he stepped down from office. The major theme here is balanced. Eisenhower knew that, America in the Cold War. He had to walk a fine line in many ways. He had to maintain fearsome weapons of war in order to preserve the peace. He had been willing to go to the brink of nuclear war. But also is willing to sit down with America's enemies to reduce tensions. The United. States had to spend much on weapons, but not too much or else. We would bankrupt ourselves. It had to maintain a healthy concern for Soviet expansion in progress without being alarmist. Eisenhower address this need for balance in his farewell address. Crises they will continue to be. In meeting them. Whether four on our domestic greater small, there is a recurring. To feel that some spectacular and costly. Could become the miraculous solution to all current difficult. A huge increase in newer elements of our defenses. Development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill and agriculture. A dramatic expansion in basic and applied research. These and many other possibilities, each possibly.

"Own! White the Eisenhower was a man of humble beginnings? He was born in eighteen ninety in Denison Texas. The third of seven boys his father owned a store when it failed, he later worked on the railroads as mechanic and then at a creamery. His mother was a Mennonite and later a Jehovah's witness she was also an avowed pacifist, Ironic, considering her son Dwight's future career path. The, Eisenhower soon moved to Abilene. Kansas young white had an idyllic childhood. He worked hard at his. But he also enjoyed the outdoors. You'd go hunting and fishing for hours like his predecessor Harry Truman. He became an avid reader especially on military history something that would serve him well throughout his career. Of His. Childhood, Eisenhower would later write quote. I have found out in later years. We were very poor, but the glory of America is that we didn't know it then. Eisenhower's family lived frugally when his father's general store failed, the family was forced to tighten their belts that lesson. The importance of living within ones means stuck eisenhower for his entire career as we will see. This lead Ike to consider going to either the Naval Academy or West Point, since both offered free college degrees. He was beyond the age limit for the Naval Academy. So in nineteen eleven. He became a student at West Point. At West Point Eisenhower was an average student, but he did well in sports, playing for the Varsity football team and taking up fencing and gymnastics. After graduating in Nineteen fifteen, he married a woman. They me doubt. Soon America entered World War One, and like many young men of his day Eisenhower hoped to get in on the action overseas, but he would end up being disappointed. Instead, he was given assignments in the United States. He was stuck training tank crews that never even saw combat. He never got to fight abroad during the war, which left him feeling bitter and depressed. Throughout the next couple of decades, Eisenhower worked, either with or for many of the men who would emerge as the top military figures of World War Two. He collaborated with George Patton on new ideas for tank warfare ideas. That were way ahead of their time. He served under General Fox Connor. Who has an intellectual mentor to him? Through Connor I studied Clausewitz and other military classics. By then Eisenhower was a serious student and had come into his own intellectually. From nineteen, twenty five to twenty six, he attended the command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth and graduated first in his class of two hundred forty five officers. Eisenhower later worked as General Douglas Macarthur's military aid in the Philippines that experience taught him two things. First how to handle relations with foreign ally and second how to handle the man with as massive and ego is General Macarthur. When. America entered World War Two in nineteen, forty, one general George Marshall Hired Eisenhower, as a war planner, Marshall had an eye for talent and realize that Eisenhower was one of the best. Many had maybe the best. Thus began Eisenhower's meteoric rise within a year. He was running the allied operation in North Africa, his success. They're impressed president. D Roosevelt. The military began planning for the critical invasion of France to liberate the European continent from Hitler's rule. Many observers believed that Roosevelt would put Marshall. In charge of the invasion, an FDR knew that whoever would lead that invasion if successful would be remembered as the great American military hero of World War Two. He Felt Marshall. Deserve the honor and recognition, but he also wanted Marshall by his side. And Roosevelt knew that Eisenhower had considerable skill in military planning in maintaining coalitions. By December nineteen, forty-three FDR had decided that Eisenhower would command the invasion known as D Day. Eisenhower would now be leading the largest seaborne invasion in world history involving over two million men. The president announced the decision in a fireside chat in December of Nineteen forty-three. The commander selected leave the combined effect. From these points. Is General Dwight, D Eisenhower. Is Performances in Africa. In Sicily and Italy. Been Brilliant. He knows my practical successful experience the way to coordinate. Sea and land power. All, of these, we'll be under his control. The world's hopes for defeating Hitler rested on Eisenhower Shoulders. He's back to his men just before the invasion began on June sixth nineteen, forty four..
