"Back to innovation Hub and Cara Miller in the summer of 1939, the chief of staff of the U. S. Army, retired. His replacement was sworn in on September 1st 1939, which coincidentally was the day that Adolf Hitler invaded Poland. You George Marshall, having been appointed a major general in the regular army, the United States solemnly swear that the most important and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies form and the best And she will bark truth. By the time America entered World War two. George C. Marshall was about 60 years old. He had no experience actually being in the theater of war with troops that he was commanding, and it wasn't a shining star of military brilliance. He had ranked pretty much smack dab in the middle of his graduating class at the Virginia Military Institute through Faith and Allegiance, saying that you take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of the baby and that you go well. Face lift the charge duties in office in which you are about to enter, so help you God, I do. But George C. Marshall had one thing in spades. The ability to concentrate. He may have been middling academically. But at VMI, he ranked number one. In discipline, and that paid off. I mean, he was the guy in charge of the entire American military forces during their largest point in World War two. When he came in into that chief of staff role. He significantly changed in streamline the process is Cal Newport is a professor of computer science at Georgetown, who has spent years looking at productivity, creativity and the time we too often waste. He is the author, most recently of a world without email. I talked to him back in February. He says. I don't want everyone to be able to reach me directly. This is crazy. The way this is set up. We have to change who can report to who I need to drastically cut down the number of people who have direct access to me. He had to actually have legislation passed in Congress because so many of these roles were appointed as political favors. That he had to actually pass legislation using the pressure of the role to allow him to essentially move people or fire people so that he could streamline. Here's how I actually want the communication that happen. Newport writes that Marshall was dealing with an incredibly complex managerial problem. One thing he had to do, and this was far from the only thing he had to do was to expand the army from fewer than 200,000 people to about eight million people. In three years, but he refused to be drawn into the army's complex buzzing activity filled structure. So instead, he insisted on zeroing in on each problem without distraction from anything else. The five star general didn't even want people who came in to talk to him to salute because it just took up too much time He had set processes for how decisions are made. You come in. You have to prepare a document in advance. You present your case. You present your answer. He'd give you the feedback. You'd move out. He streamlined all of this. So that he could focus on one thing at a time. Make the best possible decision or be as useful as possible and then move on to the next. And I think what's really remarkable at George George Marshall is not only did he have the Busiest management job, probably in the history of management jobs. He'd go home at five every day. And so it just belies this notion that just because the way you have things set up now is that everyone could reach at all points means that You can't change that. There's not other ways that you could lead and manage teams that doesn't require you to constantly be communicating. Marshall had experienced burnout years before and he didn't feel like being on all the time. With such a good idea. He needed space to pause and to reflect, and he was insistent about building that in many managers, even those who are not managing world wars. Think that taking that sort of time would not just be overly indulgent but impossible. How Newport reminds them of George Marshall, who may not have embraced being always on but who embrace something new port things even more important. Focus. It's the magic bullet, right? And one of the points I try to make is you know whether you're you're doing something that like economically requires long focused like you're writing a novel. Or if you're a manager, which can honestly we think about as being more reactive or even if you let's say support Stafford even like an administrative assistant, this really reactive We know that the best way to operate is sequentially one thing at a time with your full attention before you move onto the next thing that is the way we're supposed to operate. We cannot do one thing at a time while also checking communication channels and I keep coming back to that point. A lot is that that's what you should be striving for in these processes. Is this ability to do one thing at a time with your full 100% attention. Before moving on to the next. Now whether you have to do a lot of things in the day, and they're each short or you're just doing one thing in your novelist, the same rule applies full focus on what you're doing till you move onto the next thing. That is what's going to make us more satisfied as humans is going to prevent us from burning out, and it's going to get us way more value out of our brain. When I asked you about the German company that had people work just five hours a day, because the idea was like, five hours of real real real work and real focus, and not this, like getting distracted type of staff, um How did that work? Did they did they find that they were at a competitive disadvantage that you know what happened. Things have been going great for the company. Now. What the CEO told me is that it was hard to put in place. I think that's the important And that's the important lesson that the the hive mind had been so ingrained that they actually had essentially a coach. That would work with the employees to help them retrain how they work to not require. All this back and forth communication? No, I thought that was really significant because you know, they found that once they actually had really transitioned to whole culture to these more bespoke processes that were more less communicative, more focused. People are much happier. People love it. People were talking about how they've They've taken up new hobbies. They're actually able to spend time with their kids. But it wasn't an easy transition, and I thought that was one of the more interesting things I learned talking to him after this transition happened is that this is not a Let's throw some quick habits or hacks at it like you're fundamentally changing a culture. You have to change the way that you do work. If you can do it, there's huge advantage. But like any of these overhauls and the way we do work in any of the history of technology and commerce, usually there's some pain and making the change in the first place. So let's say you're talking to the leader of a company or non profit and they think you know, I hear what you're saying. We should make some changes in our organization. What would be like the first specific steps to change, you know? Due to implement what would you say to them? Well, okay, So I mean, a couple of things, I suggest, is that ideally, probably the light right level at which to make this transformation from hive mind towards processes is at the team level, and it needs to be a collaborative process. Right. So it needs to be okay. We're a team that works together on doing client presentations for this ad agency. That team used to be empowered by the management to have this process oriented mindset. We don't want to do the hive mind. We don't want to do back and forth digital conversation to figure things out. Identify your processes come up with what you think is better. That's going to minimize those back and forth. We're here to support you. But the team has to figure it out, and it has to figure it out with the mindset of we're not going to get this right at first. And so let's keep revisiting. Let's keep experimenting. Let's take some pride and look at what we figured out. You might even want to set up a culture of this team can with pride present their innovation to the other teams like we we we've built this new. This new process has really saved a lot of communication. I think that's the right. That's the right level to focus now, if you want to really concrete thing you can do in a week just to get wet. People's appetites is send down a decree that says no meetings will be scheduled via email. Okay, That's the one thing read. The simplest change you can make is going to be. We're going to introduce some tool like scheduled once or Kallen Lee or whatever it requires so that there is no back and forth email exchanges to schedule meetings..

The USS William D. Porter Was the Unluckiest Ship in WWII
"The troubles of the uss william d porter began immediately as they were leaving port in norfolk virginia. The first problem was when they left port they raised their anchor improperly and they damaged one of the ships it was dock next to they tore off one of the railings a lifeboat mount from one of the ships. No one was hurt but it was a very inauspicious. Start to their journey. The next day things didn't go much better. They accidentally dropped a depth charge into the water which exploded the reason. Why so many ships in the fleet was to defend themselves against german u boats as no one knew the depth chart was being released. Everyone in the fleet assume that it was a torpedo attack which caused everyone to take evasive maneuvers. The porter had to sheepishly. Notify the rest of the fleet that they had accidentally caused the explosion and that they weren't under attack after the accidental depth-charge. The willie was hit by a rogue wave which washed one of the crew members overboard and he was never seen again. The next day it got even worse. President roosevelt wanted to see anti-aircraft drill to see how the ships would defend themselves against an they also went through a torpedo drill to simulate how they would launch a torpedo. Normally when you drill like this you remove the primer from the torpedo which is what makes it a shoot out of the torpedo tube. however the torpedo man aboard the porter forgot to take the primer out of one of the tubes when they simulated launching a torpedo they actually launched a torpedo and the torpedo is heading towards the uss iowa which had on board the president of the united states. i should add. It wasn't just the president of the united states aboard the iowa. Roosevelt had brought with him. The secretary of state cordell hull chief-of-staff admiral william delay chief of staff of the army. George marshall chief of naval operations ernest king commanding general of the. Us army's henry. Hap arnold secretary of commerce harry hopkins and a bunch of other high ranking officials. If the iowa were to be sunk it would've taken out almost all of the american senior military leadership during the war.

"And I think one of the great things about the US system is that it does allow you to go in and out of government and I found that that experiences enriched my work outside of government but it also allowed me to share what I've. Learned at places like GM, F. When I'm back in government well, I wanNA talk a bit about your time in government but I, just tell us a little bit more about the German Marshall Fund. In the United States, it's an organization that's been around since the nineteen seventies. But how would you describe its goal especially these days and the impact that? It's had in the United States. How has your access your influence impacted US policy. Thanks so much for that question because our name is confusing were the German Marshall Fund of the United States. So you start out thinking that we're German and then you get of the United States and there's a question mark about what exactly do the name captures the history In one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, two on the twenty fifth anniversary of the Marshall Plan of the famous speech that George Marshall gave at Harvard announcing this recovery plan for Europe on the anniversary of the plan the then West. German government wanted to do something to say, thank you to US Americans and the idea they settled on was creating an American nonprofit organization that would be dedicated to strengthening cooperation with Europe. and GM F does that into unique ways one is our geographic footprint. We have the headquarters here in Washington and seven offices across Europe. The other is the type of work we do and there are three main pillars of our work. We have a think-tank piece of GM F.. So we have smart people writing about what's happening in the transatlantic relationship organizing events. Around that we secondly have a group of colleagues who are working to strengthen civil society particularly in the Balkans and in the Black Sea region of Europe and that part of GM, is primarily making grants to strengthen civil society organizations and then the third pillar of G.. NF F. is our leadership programs. So we have fellowship programs that bring young professional Europeans to the US and send young professional Americans to Europe, and we have close to four thousand alumni of those fellowship programs. So we have these three distinct methods of work that we use to try to strengthen that relationship between Americans and Europeans and talk a bit about some of the impact you've had more recently. It feels like we're in a moment right now where that relationship needs to be strengthened more than ever it's fair to say what kind of work are you doing at the moment to keep those contacts alive I would agree with you. That G. M. F.'s mission has never been more important than it is right now and I say that because for most of GM's history, we took it for granted..

"I'm John Baxter. This is the John Bastard show. I welcome Ambassador Dennis Ross. His new book The is entitled Doomed to Succeed. Subtitle tells the US Israel relationship from President Truman. To President Obama, Dennis Very good evening to you. Congratulations for this, And your book is comprehensive and gripping because in here is those 70 years told from the point of view of peril. Perel following the second war with the depredations visited on all the peoples of Europe, but the Holocaust on the Jews of Europe and what is to be done with the changing map of the Middle East already influx after the first war here again after the second war. The nightmare of putting it all back together in a world that's so did dislocated. So we go to a scene that you've emphasized in your book may 12th 1948. Present in the room, the president of United States, Harry Truman, and the very critical and heroics Secretary of state former General George Marshall Clark. Clifford is also present as a domestic adviser. They're arguing over something that is going to happen in I think 48 hours, which is the vote at the U N to create not not to you. N What's going to happen in 48 hours is that Israel is about to declare itself estate. Because the British mandate is about then the British are going to withdraw it made at midnight, the beginning of May, 15th. And so the concern is that Israel will the Jewish community in Palestine will declare itself estate And that's what the meeting is about What the U. S do if it does, all right, we plunge right into it. The president lays out his position which looks to be fixed. The president's made a decision and emotional, intellectual decision. To support the state of Israel and also to advocate for the transfer of 100,000 displaced persons to the Middle East. George Marshall, the very famous secretary of state opposes what is his thinking, Dennis? Good evening to you, and congratulations. Thank you. Thank you. Um, his thinking is that this is going to be disaster for us with the Arabs that if we do this, we're gonna produce unyielding in an unending enmity from The Arab states will our position in the Middle East will simply be destroyed. And so we shouldn't do this. We shouldn't We should try to if they used the clearest state. We shouldn't recognize. Uh and the president has Clark Clifford in who is a domestic political counselor. And he's the one who's then begins to make the argument against Against Marshall, in a sense, an argument in favor of recognition. Marshall is very upset and shows it. In fact, he makes a declaration. You quote. If this was an election, I wouldn't vote for you, Mr President that is stunning, but given martial stature in the world at this point This is the man given credit by everyone for having won the second war, both both theaters that statement what is his what is the basis for his refusal to follow his president's lead? What's striking about new and you captured well, because obviously, I I described the scene. The scene is one of which Marshall has gone through and argued for why that shouldn't be done. He also has his undersecretary there. Robert Lovett, who says that and another reason we shouldn't do it is because we shouldn't recognize them as a state is because They're going to be all these socialists. We're going to be there and they're gonna basically be an outpost for the Soviet Union. Oh, and and the answer to that comes from Clark Clifford, who says that's ridiculous. They're about freedom. They're not about subjugation. They're going to be the last ones to be. Porting the Soviet Union. And he begins to go through and debunk each of the arguments that has been made by marshal about how this is going to produce. Unending enmity will, he says, You know, the Arabs can't drink their oil. We can't look like we're giving in to threats. No one's going to respect us if we do. And Marshall is, you know, the more these arguments are made by Clifford the more angry martial becomes, and that's when he finally explodes and says If I were to vote he's a five star general is the only five star general we've ever had. And as a military man he had chosen like many of his counterparts, like many of his colleagues. Not to vote to be a political in that sense, So that's why he says If I were to vote in the upcoming election, you were to make this decision and recognize them. I wouldn't vote for you. And that just cast a pall over the meeting. The meeting comes to an end after that. Truman says, Well, General, I'm inclined to agree with you and the meeting breaks up. Oh, and Clifford is kind of disconsolate. And Truman says to him why you're so you know why they're so down. He says. Look, I failed you and Truman says You didn't fail me. You weren't goingto no one was going to persuade. What happens at night? Interestingly enough is that love It goes to see Clifford because he's disturbed if he doesn't want there to be a breach between the secretary of state. And the president. So the two of them work out that the United States won't recognize a Jewish state because nobody knows at this point was actually be called, won't recognize the Jewish state. Before it declares itself and Lovett says that basically says to Clifford well We were concerned that you would you recognize it before it even declared itself not to mention We didn't want you to recognize that even afterwards. That's how this ends up being settled. Just Dana Mark to this is that when Marshall is asked by his staff Well, what's it going to do now? Because President has gone ahead and recognized. Marshall says. Well, he is the president got elected. He has a right to make a decision. So Marshall rationalizes going along with it, even though he had made this quite emotional statement and obviously had argued strongly against a recognition of the state in that meeting in 1948 for the next 70 years. We will see that argument repeated again and again. That's what you find in Dennis Ross is book doomed to succeed medalist Rationing administration doesn't matter. The politics doesn't matter. The world events doesn't matter the scale of the Cold War. We'll see it repeated. And we'll make it very clear now because Dennis closes his case, and we're going go through these presidencies with lessons learned a lesson learned is that there is a cost to cooperation with Israel. That's the lesson that's repeated. Each administration some believe it some. Don't some president sign on. Some do not And one of the corresponding aspects of that cost. If you sign on to it is we must distance ourselves from Israel in order to gain favor with the Arabs, or we must resolve the Palestinian and Israeli conflicts in order to solve the Middle East. That will come later, when they're, as is such a thing as a Palestinian Ah Palestinian organization that presses the case. But that one about cost Dennis it's it's almost as if Marshall's ghost And Robert Lovett, the undersecretary of state and the other's in state department, at the time,.
Senate Holds Confirmation Hearing For Trump's New Pick For Ambassador To Ukraine
"Update now on two important diplomatic vacancies. One is the post of U. S ambassador to the Ukraine. The last woman who held that Senate confirmed job was a central figure in President Trump's impeachment. And now the president's pick for the job is facing some lingering question in his own confirmation hearing. NPR's Michelle Kelemen reports President Trump's ouster of the ambassador to Ukraine featured prominently in his impeachment trial. Marie Ivanovich face to smear campaign by Trump's private lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who had been pressing Ukraine to get dirt on Vice President Joe Biden. Senator Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, says that's still happening. Giuliani Esteban, Savory Ukrainian characters have not let up their efforts to use Ukraine to interfere in U. S politics. Others in the Senate seem intent on amplifying their efforts. Menendez wants the new nominee, retired Lieutenant general Keith Dayton, to avoid playing into this and avoid any meetings with Giuliani. Senator I'm not going to commit to that, because I believe that as an ambassador, I would have the obligation to meet with any U S citizen and hear them out. It was a home. Dayton has been a defense attache in Moscow, a security advisor for the U. S on the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and, in recent years has run the George Marshall European Center for Security Studies in Germany. He's well versed on Ukraine, but his answers frustrated both Menendez and another Democrat Chris Murphy. So at the end of the hearing, he did offer this reassurance. Ify is the U. S ambassador and key Have any indication that there is any kind of election interference going on using Ukraine as a azalea ever to do that? I would, of course, report that directly to this committee. I think you have a right to know that I think I have an obligation to report that to Dayton says his priorities in the country, if confirmed, would be to help Ukraine fight corruption and beef up Ukraine's Navy and Air force. Next door in Belarus. The U. S is reviving diplomatic relations in part because of Russia's aggression. In Ukraine. Career diplomat Julie Fisher has been tapped to run the U. S embassy in Minsk. Our relationship with Belarus languish for more than a decade. But after Russia's illegal seizure and occupation of Crimea, and it's manufactured war in Ukraine stone best region, we began to see signs of interest from the Belarussian sign. Belarus recently bought US crude oil to decrease its dependence on Russia and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Minsk earlier this year. But the's warming ties will be tested by an election this Sunday, and Fisher face questions about that the first component to ensuring that we can continue to grow this relationship. Not see steps backward in the conduct of this presidential election. The long time ruler Alexander Lukashenko is facing a united opposition in the run up to this election, and his regime has been cracking down. There will be no international monitors, though Fisher says the U. S embassy will be watching the vote closely. What we are trying to get Johnny is basically to ensure that there is space to ensure their space for more than one voice. In this country. Lukashenko kicked out the less U. S ambassador to Belarus in 2008 after the US accused his government of human rights violations and tighten sanctions. Michelle Kelemen NPR NEWS Washington

know it's kind of interesting anytime it's its whatever you're closest to write in history and other things they have to be the worst you know and so Donald Trump his administration's wise it just has to be the worst all the fussing and fighting in in fighting that's going on like no other president before well before you really jump that shark and think that that is the case then you start believing you're hyperbole I once you get your hands on this new book called White House from doctor Tevye Troy bestselling author and former White House adviser okay he's been on the inside he's known as and researched and studied this and he's right about now with his book White House rivalries in the White House from Truman J. trump Dr Troy welcome to the show good to have you with us thanks bill Bradley on talk about played out hello this is this is it this is exciting you know that you know to put this out because you know this conversation has come up from time to time and you always hear from you know the hyperbolic that downhole trump is the worst ever and then you you start bringing back some of the the stories and histories and now here it is you've documented it I imagine if you wanted to go back even before Truman we we have to do episodes inch you know volumes of all the fussing happening in the White House right no absolutely and and we know that they were fighting before experiment where we are perfect I mean you look at the administration of Washington and Hamilton and Jefferson murder each other's throats but the difference is they were cabinet members and when I try to get that in my house how the dynamic change once we had the creation of a White House staff there was no real White House staff before Roosevelt and Truman the first person to enter the White House staff and make change the dynamic in that certainly you have the people who are close to the president meaning in the same building advising him on foreign policy and economic policy and then you might have a treasury secretary or spectators biggest ticked off that somebody else is inviting in his area that was one thing that changed in that that meant that I wasn't quite interesting to note that that the dynamic in the entrance of more humanity just because the more issues right yeah look and government was growing mistake became higher and then also you have this right the best celebrity White House aide the whole idea of a White House staff was supposed to be people with a passion for anonymity but that went away pretty quickly especially in the Kennedy administration when he hired people who are already famous like orcas lessons or to work in the White House is suddenly how celebrity White House they had its own reputation has long ties to the craft and they they could get their word out there if the policies were not going their way and to suddenly you have this idea of leaks and counter leaks you can make you look good in the press and that also at the White House right now make that I talk about the book in the course that is continued and become almost like a to the degree of a tender green black belt when you talk about all this and leaking and stuff going on you know but bad enough that it happens in DC but now of course with the most recent refill we understand that even ambassadors in our state department is running rampant with it as well yeah well you talk about ten degree black belt and that that was Henry Kissinger I'll tell you one great story that's been quite how's that Kissinger was dating Jill St John a very attractive bond girl actress Mandy comes out in the papers that Kissinger's dating this woman and Kissinger ghost and extending complains that his rival Christy William Rogers leaked the information about your retaining but the truth is that your lease it because a he wanted everyone to know he was dating that the truck the bond girl would be he wanted to hurt Rogers any internal wars and bribery deposit so what happened what was it what was the conclusion that well well written exam would rail about all the leaking that happened at the state department and constant complained about it but just not your fat it but at least some of the time we know the kiss your will the guy doing the leaking and then blaming the state department and of course everybody knows because your date of birth second longer up there with a win win corrective measure like you would can degrade black belt in Plato's exactly so he gets the he gets the reward and the award let's talk about president Truman we touched a little bit on that I mean he he he was I guess the modern era of the expanding the staff and and really kind of bringing this into play and of course it's just been kind of kind of a a monolith that like the blob is just been growing unto itself right yes Sir but instrument you have the right there were just unbelievable I don't I'm a presidential historian I've been putting this stuff for decades and the story behind in spite house were were things I'd never even heard of and one breaks during the ministration is that the secretary of state George Marshall as opposed to the recognition of the state of Israel which is flabbergasting to update the business interest on July especially right there at that critical time because it was true and that led the battle for inferred knowledge meant of Israel that would that would be very fight with marshals on the wrong side of it Clark Clifford a junior White House beat it on the right side of it make an argument in front of Clifford Clifford and Truman and Marshall are all arguing out in the White House Clifford wins the argument Truman recognized Israel Marshall is still mad that he never again the clippers or mentions his name for the rest of life right yeah right because so it's pretty petty but yeah such as such as you can't be the government the illusion of the Kennedy Camelot regime you said was not devoid of conflict as well of course in Kennedy do you have this notion of Camelot music wonderful people sitting around a table can you never even heard the term Camelot elections administration that comes from our interview that took place after the administration after he was dead yes but even in the administration there was fighting taking place especially between Lyndon Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy canteen was the product any would be turned general and the president brother Lynn Johnson vice president that you hated each other going back to their time in the Senate together when we can't even the lowly staffer and Johnson with the Senate Majority Leader and they had these nasty nicknames for him brought Robert if they reported Johnson is ruthless corded phone and get a canny referred to by Johnson as bunny boy really didn't like each other and they're always trying well anyway and we've known that that that tension what is it was pretty extreme there between them what else within the Kennedy at Camelot compound anything else that you discovered yeah there was a a a a rivalry between artists less intervention before they collect their prize winning historian who came to the White House when the first intellectual ever worked in the White House and then there was Ted Sorensen it was not as well known but he was closer to Kennedy and there was tension between them that continued even after the administration because the two of them we're kind of bracing to get their books out first hand stories then asked her to stop and stop writing his books but it's different in different book out first plus you're obviously would not agree and there were and the race was on and it it colored their relationship there's tension between them that went on for a long time and I got to imagine especially after the assassination these rivalries it would increase all the more would they not yeah and if there is one great story that dean Rusk with the sector state did not like that Slazenger called him brutalized in silence in meetings during the Kennedy administration implying that he wouldn't say anything that's a rough put it out there the only reason he was silent in meetings this lessons are within the facilities are respected leaker and we would talk about everything that he heard needing three wins Mr this is this is great fun Dr Chevy try I'd say it's good fun because you know the politics is just right for comedy it's it's when we take it too seriously like at times we're doing right now in this current environment then we deprive ourselves of of the little bit of humor in thank you Dr drive for presenting

"Years of Japanese occupation. But with that newfound freedom old wounds. Reopened the civil war between the communists and the nationalists resumed. You had a government, led by John shocked in the nationalists, that was trying to very, very tenuously reestablished control over the Chinese mainland. At the same time you had the communists who are based in city called Yunan in the northwest of China remote city that were challenging the nationalist for control. Beyond China, the world, not yet split along the ideological lines of capitalism, versus communism. Instead there was a two year interlude, which has been largely forgotten according to historian, Daniel Kurtz, Phelan. We tend to look back at history, retrospectively and see immediately jumping from World War, Two to the Cold War, and what we forget, is that there's this amazing period where the world is really unsettled and people don't quite know how it's gonna go. And there's a tremendous amount of damage from the war of uncertainty about how global politics gonna shape out. President Harry Truman was worried. So he decided to send General George Marshall to China on what the newspapers at the time described as the most difficult diplomatic mission anywhere in the world. And he calls up Marshall one day after Marshall's retirement and says, general need one last favor of you. I need you to get a ceasefire between the national communists who are starting to fight. I need you to lay the groundwork for a Chinese democracy.

And they're actually people that died in that. There are some people who died because a car wrecks heart attacks and stuff like that. Because they they they had a brand new weapon at the time is called radar and the public really hadn't heard much about that. They were keeping it secret. You know, but when watch the war started they were really using it, and they actually had picked up these objects. Several objects coming off the Pacific heading eastwards towards Los Angeles. And of course, this was just like a month or so after Pearl Harbor and the whole west coast on high alert everybody had the jitters everybody was afraid that. Japanese might be launching a invasion of the west coast. And that was not just sheer fantasy actually Japanese submarine had service than shelled an oil refinery out on the California coast. And so they got all upset well like these objects came in over Los Angeles, and they began shooting at him with anti aircraft guns about eleven at night. This lasted well into the morning hours till two or so and some of this ordinance is falling back on the city caused some damage, etc. But then a day or two later the secretary war announced that it was just war jitters. Okay. And of course, then the war news came kept going on and on and everybody tended to forget about it. But as I've got this document here from chief of staff, George Marshall to president Roosevelt, and he was saying the war department. Naval intelligence is reported unidentified, they recovered the aircraft off the coast of California that had no bearing on conventional explanation. And then said further investigation reveal the army air corps.

What's George Marshall? I got a double check this. Because I know he was very briefly secretary of defense. I think he was also. Yeah, he was he was secretary of state for two years after during Truman. Like, it's. Is what it is man. So I don't know. I mean, we're just I mean, this is going to be the one of the stories of twenty nineteen with the other Trump, Mike well pull out troops. I mean, like, it's not a not I think that's not zero chance. I mean, there is no cost sharing agreement at the moment. Which I don't fully understand how that works. My understanding is there is a reserve fund. So there are some funds that can be drawn down. But lie. At some point. There was an Email sent out to employee's sieve-like civilian employees sang like you're gonna get furloughed if there's no deal so like. I mean, it's not unlike the current status in the United States has as it's not like the current status in the United States. When the government will reopen. I'm worried this could be a while. Yeah. Of course. Yeah. But so like, I don't know. So I see this as a high c Kim is sort of very artfully arranging the situation, you know, it's not like you saying, I'm it's not like he's holding out an olive branch. He is pointing to the olive branches that are on the table and have been on the table, and he has restating his position, which is like this is enough to earn sanctions relief. And if you don't do that and this whole process collapses, it's not because. I didn't make an effort. It's because you the foreigner showed up on the peninsula, and you are the one who's trying to maintain this. You know? Constant sense of tension. And I think there are a lot of south greens are going to buy that. I think they're wrong. I think they're gonna buy that. And there's every chance that, you know, Trump's response to that is to blame someone else. Whether it's Pompeii or maybe moon, Bolton hopes it'll be all about Kim. But you know, I think it's the equally likely troops. Come out. This is gloomy man. I mean, I guess we gotta go there. Right. I mean, there's just no it's gotten very very silly in Washington. And it's very very unclear about what it is that he'll do. I mean, the rail seem to have ultimately come off. I think that was the other story during our break has Twitter meltdown even worse than normal the rails. Just come up. Yeah. They have. A lot of it depends on what Kim does because the place heat doesn't end because he ends with some nice talk again. But toward the end. He does make threat, right? Right. Right after he says, he's ready to meet with Trump. He says, but if the United States does not keep the promise it made in the eyes of the world and out of miscalculation of our people's patience it attempts to unilaterally enforce something upon us and persists in. Imposing sanctions and pressure against our Republic. We may be compelled to find new way for defending the sovereignty of the country and supreme interests of the state and for achieving peace and stability of the Korean peninsula. What's that new way? No idea. No idea it sort of reminiscent when they put out that cryptic message that they tested a new weapon, and we all sort of freaked out a little bit on on Twitter about thirty seconds before..

"And now back to the show. So that means it's interesting because you mentioned there in the beginning before World War Two started Eisenhower was wanting to work under patent, but in Eisenhower ended up being patents, boss. And so that was kind of interesting like tension throughout the war. Both all three of these men were in business. They wanted to leave a Mark in their military career. They wanted to gain rink. So what was that tension? Like when you know say, Pat and was like, okay. Yeah. I come work for me. But then. Ended up being patents boss or Bradley ended up being, you know, working under patent or then Bradley, you know, was pads boss. How did what was that tension like throughout World War Two two? In Eisenhower's case it worked out pretty well because I had a very different role from patents patents was to was to capture an area to destroy an army. It was he had specific missions to accomplish Eisenhower had sort of work in a supervisory role. So they were able to get along pretty well. But there was always that army chain of command that was that they couldn't escape from casually. Eisenhower would tell Patton, look, you're. You're shooting off at the mouth too much. You're ruining your credibility by acting like you're just spouting off when you and I both know you thought about these things, but you say them in a flippant way. So you need to you need to work work on that work on your approach have some more gravity. Toss a work as work on your image and patent groused about that. He thought Eisenhower was kind of getting a little bit big for his britches. He wrote his wife Beatrice that he he's patent said. I think I could do a better job as supreme commander. But I certainly don't want the job. So you know, that relationship was always going to be a little bit tense, but it also had some benefits because later on when patent got into trouble for some things. He had done or said Eisenhower would be there to protect him because he understood patents strengths and wanted to keep petting in the fight. He would also as he as Eisenhower told General, George Marshall when it came to controlling patent and tempering some of his more damaging the attributes I can be rougher with Hatton than anybody else could without my having to ask for them to be fired and sent home I can because of our friendship, I can give him sort of the. Great scoop. Yeah. I mean, there was some definite. Like really Eisenhower given patent time. Straight scoop Sers at one moment. I think it was at after the instant were patent slapped. The the guy in the hospital, and he's pretty much on the chopping block. And Eisenhower someone into the office. And basically said look give you one last chance and patent. Just started crying. Give Eisenhower big hug. Yeah. Yeah. I is in Howard done that enough a number of times, and he had kind of a standard procedure for what he called jacking up George Patton Patton had slapped a couple of enlisted men in two different hospitals in Sicily, whom he thought were Melinda. Green. The idea of post traumatic stress wasn't really a concept that patent understood..

"I wasn't really passionate about the whole thing is so many things on my plate at the time as a student, but I would I did you get into the involved into the into the election battle, and when I get after I gave my speech, the Hungarian candidate got up, and he said, you know, causing sounds like he he's with us in on these issues, and he sounds like he would be a very good person for. But I want to tell you the real story about this guy, and he proceeded a launch of personal hat humvee one of the unusual events of my life. A witting dupe of communism or you working for George Marshall and Eisenhower and author communist sort of in that vein. He he had a brief AC abroad with him because the type of hanging pulled out some materials since briefcase during his talk and one of the things was a copy of new individuals review. And there was an article by Bob heard about a trip to Soviet Union at the time, which was more like a travelogue than it was a a real political story. But he said, no clog gave out this magazine. And it looks like an innocent managing, but you should see the favorable things that are said about the Soviet Union in this. He said there was another Cajun whenever meetings, we're policy was we were trying to organize your group to go to the protests that the. Department stores like Macy's, and and gambles and others. They used to go to trash if there was a polish imports like a communist country imports like Czechoslovakian glass or polish ham. They used to trash the stuff put it through on the ground in run out of the store, and I pointed out from it a meeting when time why that wasn't an appropriate thing to do. And so I was attacked for that during this nominating session because I oppose this tactic in the name of property rights because that wasn't anti-communist. So that was sort of you know, in in the ebbs and flows in the Kristen turns of life that was one of the aspects. Libertarians went that little known, we weren't all that popular the result of the of the election. True doubt that George was reelected. So she was kind of the moderate that that got elected. That's basing the racist. He wasn't a nasty racist. He was you know, he was personable. And you wouldn't know it. If you didn't know it, you, you just you you wouldn't it wasn't. He didn't wear it on his sleep. So move forward a couple of years. And you know, what what what when did you start unambiguously or maybe you already had by this point calling yourself a libertarian, or when when did you feel that libertarian as a signifier became a thing of its own. That was understood and recognized. Okay. So I haven't yet mentioned this is a good question now because I haven't yet mentioned that true semester. Pedro I came into contact with the great Murray Rothbart who had found influence on me. When patriot was leaving to do sabbatical year. He asked me what I take over his seminar. New non credit basis for the law students agreed to do it. I suggested him and might be interesting to bring in some guest speakers. And I asked him if he had any ideas. The people that I might be able to to invite to speak at the law school and one of the names. He gave me was Mary Rothbart. I called Marie old time old days and no Email, and we range to me for breakfast. I didn't know at the time that he stayed up and work very late. So he was not an early riser. But because we didn't discuss it. I just said you like to get together we can have records lunch or dinner, whatever you to do he agreed to meet near his his apartment on west ADA street.

"And he looks over George Marshall who eventually, of course, becomes the chief of staff. And he says, George, you're not shaking your head. What do you think? And he said, well, Mr President, I don't agree with you at all in the room into silence and everybody laughed taught. Well, that's it for George Marshall. And then he pointed him not long after bringing him up like fourteen names on the list or more. To be the head because he wanted that person around him. So it's that strength. I think that inner confidence that allows you to do that. That's a critical question in all leadership passageways. Did you have any. People use around yourself with who you know, will speak truth to you or who have wildly divergent opinions or political perspectives. Is that something that you have practically built into your life? Or did you just have people already? Who surrounding you who offer those opportunities to hear dissenting opinions? You know, it's a really important question. I think in my work. So I had a woman who's been my research assistant for the last thirty five years and she's still working for me Beth, who's my manager? My best friend, my partner in a lot of things that we do together lives in California has worked with me for the last eighteen years, and I trust her, I think more than almost anybody to tell me when something I've done is not up to par when something I've written is not as good as it should be. And when when maybe on moving in some different direction and then my. Husband and I have a best friend named Michael Rothschild who was a writer in his folks lives in Maine, and he has worked with both. My husband me, we've worked within on everything. We ride together, everything we do together in these absolutely honest about this sentence isn't any good or this year not making this clear. So that's built in in a certain sense. I'm not sure that I did it on the purpose, but they, they are the kind of people Seth in Michael and my husband. Of course, my husband read every single thing I've written and not only edited them, but would tell me when when I was going off in a direction that really wasn't right. I remember when I was working on the book on the Kennedys, I'd always been interested in medical history because the my sisters were both nurses and my brother-in-law was doctrine because of my mother's medical history. So John Fitzgerald, rose Kennedy's father had gone to Harvard Medical School for a year on, I thought, oh, this is great. I can write a whole chapter on the state of medicine. The eighteen eighties in then my husband. Exited nieces, but he dropped out of medical school became in politician why he doing this, and, oh, I hated to make that chapter, go down to two pages, but he was just dead, right? But the other thing that happens that builds in dissent is that we, we live in concord, Massachusetts, and ever since the kids have been grown in. The kids are now joining us because they live back in the town which I've been talking about later. But anyway, we go out every night to eat in a bar. One of this two or three bars in concord that the whole gang of us goes to one one night one the other night on the next one the next night. And in that group of people, there are Trump supporters. There are radical people there moderate people, and we argue and talk about politics..
