Senator Josh Hawley Talks Foreign Policy Threats
"Let's play cut 36. Raytheon CEO says Ukraine is depleted. The weapon stocks faster than expected boy. This is a gift to the weapons manufacturers. They're going to have record profits. I'm not telling anybody what stocks to buy. But if you were to buy Northrop Grumman or Lockheed Martin or Raytheon, I can't imagine you'll do poorly even in a recession. Play cut 36. So as we think about all of the weapons that have been delivered to Ukraine have come out of, I would say, current inventory. We're not building any of those replenishing any of those today, although we're working on it. The fact is we are drawing down weapon stocks much faster, and I think I said this last week, we've gone through in the first ten months of the war 5 years worth of production on javelin anti tank missiles, and we've gone through 13 years worth of stinger production. So it's going to take us some time to catch up. I mean, it's great for business, obviously, for Raytheon, senator, but that's not good for our national security. No, it's terrible for our national security, but it's really terrible for us. Is our effort and our desperate need, Charlie, to deter China. If you think about our foreign policy threats here, where is our greatest foreign policy threat? It is an imperialist China that wants to dominate our supply chains that wants to shut down our ability to trade on fair terms that wants to steal our jobs and steal our technology. What are we doing to counter that? Basically nothing. And what China sees right now is the Americans are completely tied down in Europe. The Americans are spending all of this money and using all of their munitions on Ukraine in this proxy war with Russia and therefore the Chinese are concluding, they can run rampant in Asia. They can continue their efforts at imperial domination, Taiwan will be next and why do we care about any of that? Well, because it's about our security and prosperity. I mean, if you take the supply chain crunch as a problem now, wait until China invades Taiwan and shuts down our shipping lanes, wait until they kick us out of our trade routes in the Pacific, which is what they want to do.

"I think so, I think a lot of asset prices are probably going to have a choppy sideways decade. If you look back at prior inflationary periods, whether there's high end traits or low interest rates, they usually choppy periods. So the 40s were very choppy periods for equities. The 70s were very choppy periods for equities. And I think that's likely to be the same for the 2020s where the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ were over owned, going into this decade, and especially the first year or so when everyone was kind of locked at home. And that's a very expensive over owned set of assets. So I think that that's going to kind of bleed out over the long term and this choppy pattern, and I think Bond stocks, a lot of assets, a lot of expensive real estate markets, domestically and globally, I think we're just going to have turbulence and kind of sideways choppy returns, especially in inflation adjusted terms. Right. And I think that's going to be the challenge for a lot of investors. And over time, then that compound into problems for tax revenue. Totally. Yeah. It's important to zoom out for sure because it's easy to get caught and I know a year can feel like a long time frame, but when you look back on your entire investment trajectory, especially if you're younger, don't miss the forest for the trees to quote Grumman. All right, let's pivot to Bitcoin. We want to get into your opinions on its valuation and if it's appetizing here, but before we do that, let's zoom out a little bit to what you've characterized in your recent newsletters, the world's money problem.

Pentagon debuts its new stealth bomber, the B-21 Raider
"The nation's newest nuclear stealth bomber will make its public debut today after years of secret development. The B 21 raider is the first new American bomber in more than 30 years. It'll be unveiled in California 7 years after then air force secretary Deborah Lee James announced the need for a new one to take on potential threats from China and Russia. The LRS B will allow the air force to operate in tomorrow's high end threat environment. The rate of program is highly classified. Artist renderings reveal the bomber resembles the one it will replace the B two spirit. Builder north of Grumman says that's where the similarities end. Analysts say changes could include advanced materials making the raider harder to detect and the ability to disguise itself as another object on radar, 6 raiders are in production as The Pentagon tries to modernize its nuclear force. The cost is unknown. Sagar Meghani, Washington

And the other thing that I was going to pique my curiosity now we know of Gulfstream as it's like its own company, but apparently it started with Grumman aviation. Because it's the Grumman Gulfstream one. And I'm not sure exactly the history behind that. I'm wondering if it somehow spun off into its own separate company, because I think Grumman continues to be a separate company. Aren't they? Yeah. They were. North referral. It's Northrop Grumman Northrop Grumman. Okay. Anyway, I thought that was interesting. All right, let's continue with this item from Chris. How are passenger and baggage weights calculated? He said, on a recent trip to Spain, we're allowed 22 kilograms of hold luggage and ten kilograms of cabin luggage. So my question is, if there's, for instance, 100 persons on board. How do you know the combined weight of the passengers? They could, in theory, all be overweight, and heavier than when what's normal if you get my meaning. And then you're allowed to bring back four liters of alcohol each, so therefore it's possible to have 400 liters on board. Yeah. Not very likely. More weight. Also, they could have extra bags of presents or handbags more weight. So how do airlines work out the possible payload of a particular flight? Thank you. Again, this was from Chris Barney and northamptonshire. UK. And let's see. So yeah. Here's a chart that I broke down. This is from the new FAA standards. They ended up increasing the weight of

"In healthcare. The iPhone maker is published and almost 60 page report outlining all of its health features and partnerships with various medical institutions. Though the Apple watch dominates the market, the device hasn't always gotten new health features as quickly as its competitors. We were smart Grumman here to tell us what Mark tell us about what is in this report. So this is a nearly 60 page report and I rarely see Apple do things like this typically when they want to tout their initiatives. They make a new website for it. They put out an event or a video of some sort. But this is more of an academically focused report. It's not for consumers that really showcases all the health and fitness and workout related features. As we all know and use across the iPhone or the Apple watch and the rest of its ecosystem, it dives deep into how all the features work, they talk about some of their research studies. They have sleep studies. They have a walking studies. They had heart studies and how all of that works together, complete and concert with different medical institutions and medical partners they have globally to produce new features for their products. That's what I thought. I can't remember a time that Apple has done this previously. You know, what does this say about their plans for the future? I mean, that's what we want to know is how will health tech increasingly be integrated into all of my Apple devices? Yeah, it's fascinating. I think that health functionality will really spread to all of apple's future products. I mean, don't forget the AirPods, upcoming virtual reality headset, future augmented reality glasses. You're going to see some health integration probably in all of those products at some point. Maybe one day your AirPods will be able to tell you your heart rate, right, where your body temperature may be able to have some health workout functionality related to apple's headset, just like meta has, with its Oculus move feature on its VR and AR headsets, right? So the apple future of health is very strong. This year, they're going to add a body temperature sensor to the Apple watch, two new Apple watch models with that feature, tell you if you have a fever or other things going on, there'll be new women's health features tied to the new hardware, this fall specifically by 2024, 2025 apple wants to release a blood pressure feature for the Apple watch, something that Samsung and others have had. But of course, Apple needs to get in that space too. And they're also very invested in an R&D project to bring blood sugar monitoring to the watch eventually as well. Buying Palatine or has apple purposely let that ship sail. I think the ship has sailed for sure on Apple buying peloton unless it gets to an absurdly low price in Apple finds a way to really integrate it. I don't think peloton is necessary to Apple if Apple wanted. It can start producing bikes and treadmills at a far cheaper cost than what it would take to buy peloton unless there is a fire sale at some point. I also think they'd rather integrate their features into their existing ecosystem rather than add that really expensive business that fit fitness hardware would be. All right, Mark gurman, as always, covers apple and peloton for us. Thanks, mark. Well, after losing more than a million customers in the first half of the year, the message

What Country Does Mitch McConnell Actually Represent?
"Has come out and he has said, look, the most important thing happening in the world right now is the war in Ukraine. What country does Mitch McConnell represent exactly? The country that has the wide open border and a 100,000 plus drug overdoses that has double digit inflation, you see, for Washington, D.C., WarGames are always more important than the livelihood of their citizens. Always. They will always care more about some far distant land than their own constituents. Does Mitch Mitch McConnell as senator from western Ukraine? Or is he a senator from Kentucky that has incredible problems right now? Kentucky's dealing with drug problems, inflation, unemployment, you see Rand Paul, who also represents Kentucky, actually cares about his voters. Rand Paul stood up and said, I represent my voters and I swore an oath to the United States Constitution. And I'm not going to just all of a sudden authorize $40 billion to go to some far off distant land when we do not know what success looks like. Will this bring us closer to peace or closer to war? You see, there should be solutions put forward other than just giving Raytheon Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin, complete and total blank checks to be able to have their chance at pillaging the United States treasury.

You better get them now, they flying like hot case. And the only reason I say that, it's not even a marketing strategy. It's literally they're selling out. And a lot of people are gonna end up if you don't get them now, you're gonna end up having to wait two weeks. So if you want it now, get it now, make sure you have it before Father's Day, make sure you have it because you love great products. And thank you in advance. But y'all already know what to do. So let's get into this. Ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen, ladies. Why is target doing this? Why in the world is target pushing gender affirmation clothing? Now, my mother in law shout out to you, Carol. My mother in law sent me this video or sent me this article. And I'm going to share it on my computer with y'all here in a second. But she sent me the article and the article lays out this scheme that target is doing to affirm children and transgender kids that don't have access to reassignment surgery. And they call it the chest binders in packing underwear, right? They have stuff to make you make the boys little pump in the chest or they have them where they the chest push it down so you can't tell that they got a chest. Then they have the little underwear where kids can tuck. They stuff in there. Why? Is target doing this? When probably 99 point 9 percent, I would say 99.4%, if I'm even seeing that much, 99.4% of people don't even identify with nothing with nothing to do with this. 99.4%. That is like .6%. Of people who identify as the LGBTQ community. Yet these companies are hell bent on pushing this agenda. And as you notice, it's always targeted to children. I'm gonna put the thing up on the screen so you can see it because I want y'all to see that this is propagated to children and young people. It ain't propagated to old people. Young people. They won't kids to be involved in this mess. And you gotta just accept it. I'm gonna show it to you. Just hold the phone. Hold the phone. Here you go. Now, of course, they put the little models over here, but these are still young people. They say no middle aged people, this is high school, this is early college freshmen. This is where doctor nation camps happen. You got the little younger person that's getting indoctrinated by their parents, who should go to prison, they get indoctrinated by their parents, and then you got the kids in college who grow up and be completely stupid for $40,000 a year. $40,000 a year to make you stupid. And this is who they marketed into. Because let me tell you something. When you grow up, when you get out of college, and you start working in the real world, this stuff is no longer, this stuff no longer makes sense to you. Right? Because you live in reality. You're not living in a utopia bubble on a college campus where everybody cares about your feelings and this person affirms this person affirms this person. When you get out in the real world, you realize it's all bull, you don't do this no more. That's why they don't have a picture of a middle aged man or woman on here. They got a picture of these people while they're indoctrinating them. And what do they do? Tommy boy X and mankind are helping them, bolted in my own by two, what they call queer owners, female female, and they're creating these products for target to push. Target is also known for selling trans rights t-shirts for children. If you go into these places you'll see trans rights or human rights or trans rights for kids, like it's grooming because think about this for a minute. And I'm getting out for our promise. If a kid has never been exposed to that terminology, I would argue that a kid is more than likely not going to go down that path. And if a kid is going to go down that path and it's not reaffirmed to them every 5 minutes they turn around, it's a good likely chance in the numbers show most children grow out of this, especially prepubescent prepubescent they grow out of it. They grow out of it. They move along. They felt weird and confused when they were younger, and they grew out of it. But what happens is they are affirming, reaffirming, this is right. This is okay. It doesn't matter if you're a butcher parents say. It doesn't matter what you think. Yeah, you can live like this. This is cool. You're different. You're special. Come and join this group. See everybody, we have a LGBTQ kid in class. Show us some love be nice to her. She's a protected, she's in a protected class. And these little lost kids that parents aren't involved or maybe they too religious. I don't know what, I don't know what the parent kid dynamic become this way. But for whatever reason, the kids all lost and confused. And this is where they bring them in. If you ever do any investigation on pedophilia or somebody who had been rested for it for grooming children or arrested for assaulting children, what did they do? They picked the vulnerable kids. They don't pick the confident loud mouth kids that sure of themselves. They picked vulnerable ones. Ones who have abuse in the past ones who don't have a good relationship with their parents. Don't have a good relationship with their father. Kids who are her loners, they pick them the prey on. And their psychologically doing the exact same thing. 'cause the average kid probably ain't gonna run into another stuff of the stove. The vulnerable kids will. The susceptible kids will. The downtrodden kids will, and they fall into this because they find a sense of purpose in it. And their parents thrust them into it because their parents ain't worth the dime. And the parents want a little bit of fame and recognition too. So look, I have a special kid. And this is what they're doing. To your children. And I think what is the solution to the problem? We should stop shopping at target. I'm not going to personally go into target anymore to give any of my money. And I got to tell my wife to do the same thing. We're not giving target any more of our money. Because I disagree with this. This is not right. This is Grumman, sexual perversion is not right. On any level. You don't need to do all this stuff at a young age. If you can't tuck in and do all that stuff, if you can't afford to do none of this stuff, then you shouldn't be doing it until you old enough to afford it..

"No. Just to be clear here, I'm not the huge idiot you're trying to make me out to be, although wherever you're from, you guys are using you're talking about OshKosh around the campfire on a daily basis, then I guess. But no, not here in my neck. Right. Yeah, I mean, it's not like Levi's or anything, man. Everybody in the world has a pair, or have had a pair at once in their life, probably. Now, look, there's things you're gonna be able to stump me on that I don't know, but this one is not as common. So now I will tell you this that exactly. So for example, in the cataloging world or in the automotive industry period, like the Grumman LOV, that goes under the LLV man, that goes under GM. It's not Grumman. It doesn't go as a Grumman LLV, even though that's what it is. Grumman is the builder of that and the designer of that. But I think it gets most of its components and stuff from General Motors, so that's why it goes under the radar as GM. So there you go. Okay, so moving on daily tinker says this is from our camping world stock video where we tinker. I like that. Because I'm a tinker. Daily tinker. So it could be like taking a tank every day. I don't know. People like the tinker tinker. Yeah, daily. I like to tinker. This is his daily tanker. I like to tinker with this. I'm going to tear this apart. It is. I like it. Either that or someone is a fairy. Yeah, man. We don't judge on this program. I'd like to recomment to tell us what the tinker aspect of it is. It's memorable for sure. We're talking about it. Tinker. Yeah, so Marcus lemon is buying a bunch of his own company stock and we pointed to that and said something's coming. And he just mentioned it. And this is a good point. And this is something that has been done in the past. I may or may not have friends and family that work for fema. Can either confirm nor deny, but he says also fema is buying up brand new campers from dealers. That happens from time to time. And they use them for various things. But so good to point that out. I appreciate that. I knew that they were buying like those trailers, but not necessarily campers. But Kate trailer camper. There's a difference. It's those portable trailers. Those are different than the campers, man. Unless they can't get those, and then they have to get whatever they can. They get what they can and that might be the case here, which is fine. I think it's great that fema can do that, but that puts the RV industry in another pickle. They're already shortages in that industry..

That should be customer loyalty type updates in my opinion. Anyway, that's just me. All right. Well, while we're on the topic of potential train wrecks, man, I just, I feel bad, part of me feels bad for beating up on the postal service and part of me kind of secretly enjoys it because they've kind of brought this on themselves by just decades of just mismanagement and I have my theory on this, by the way. I digress. Okay. So we have, okay. So we talked about this a while back. The postal service has been shopping around for contracts on their new we used to call them the mail truck or the male Jeep, or they weren't jeeps. The current generation is a Chevrolet engine. It was originally placed in the S ten, it was not by any means a reliable or efficient engine. No. But these are the kinds of things that, you know, it's a government, it's basically the lowest bidder. 'cause we didn't learn anything from the space shuttle. They all run like crap. Period. If you haven't heard the rattles of your postal you know it's coming. You know what's coming? Yeah. You know, just like holy cow, man. The male guys here are male gals here, whatever, you know? So they're looking at, well, okay, so they had made a decision or a commitment in one direction. And news comes out on that. Now, this one, well, it's the contract was awarded the OshKosh defense. In the spring of 2021. To me, right? I mean, you want to be relying on an automotive manufacturer that has tons of experience in the fleet vehicle industry. So you go with the company that nobody's ever heard of, right? Right, right. What? Yeah. So these guys were, yeah, they were hooked up for the replacement of there's about a 150,000 of those what they call the Grumman long life vehicles or what we call LVs, which Keith just mentioned, which is basically an S ten, pickup truck, and they use those 2.5 liters. Now, me being in the engine component manufacturing side of the industry for years, I'm very aware of it. There's a lot of production engine rebuilders out there that have these contracts. On the rebuilding of the mail trucks for the government. And just sending out valve train in droves for these things. I mean, just it's the gift that keeps on giving. That's how bad these things are designed. They're not very good at all. They get crappy gas mileage. And that's what's going to lead us into the story. So here we are in 2022, right? And it's now time for a new replacement and the big talk is EPA. We're a decade and a half pass these things being time to be. Oh my goodness, man. Okay, so I think that the gas mileage, the EPA gas mileage rating on these things, the average is 8.2 miles to the gallon. Now keep in mind, there's a lot of idling going on..

And for those of you listening that want to get a really good understanding of how we should approach American foreign policy, Angela Kota villa was one of the most prudent. One of the most fair and pro American thinkers. And challenge the CIA and the security apparatus unfortunately, he died tragically. I was supposed to spend time with him, actually, he was unable to make it because he got COVID and he died of something else. It was awful. But he had this, the reason I bring up Angela Kota villa and Michael Anton, who's with hillsdale college. That's a great actual reminder that I have to tell you about hillsdale, the wonderful hillsdale college Beacon of the north, Michael Anton, who is not, doesn't necessarily agree with everything that Angela coded via says, but is, in some ways, disciple, I don't want to speak for him, but he would say this better than I could, which is you should not get involved in foreign conflicts if you have extensive domestic problems at home. What are you doing saber rattling across the world? Trying to resolve border disputes when our when our own border is wide open, we have inflation, the country is politically divided and you have a regime that is wildly unpopular. Well, that is exactly what the security apparatus is doing. Partly to distract away from the failed regime of Biden, but also to try and feed the fire of the military industrial complex because look, if you're the military industrial complex, you're looking at Pfizer AstraZeneca Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin Northrop Grumman Boeing, they say, hey, come on, cut us in for some of this.

But guess what allowed in county judge, this is breaking in the last 24 hours, finds boy in a skirt, guilty of raping, female student and girls bathroom remember we talked about the story, and the media told us that this wasn't true. The victims have been vindicated, and their parents demand apology and kids walk out of their classroom and protest against schools. This couldn't be happening at a worse time for Terry mcauliffe. This is hit a apex where all of a sudden, in Virginia. And let me just reemphasize this. I said this yesterday. Virginia, this is the ruling class governorship. This is the place where you wine and dine Boeing and north of Grumman and Lockheed Martin, where you give money to Pfizer AstraZeneca and Moderna. This is the governor of Virginia is kind of a ribbon cutting deal. You get all the nice handouts you get invited to all the Washington D.C. parties because you're nearby. You get treated really well. Being governor of Virginia is one of the top perks of being part of the Democrat ruling class. It's rather desirable.

"So friend. You're aware we is member of the defense industrial base requirement to notify the government in the event that we are attacked and it's not related specifically to having a ransom where request it's any vulnerability that we identify in our networks and operations we would disclose in a timely manner and we believe that that makes us and our partners in this industry stronger as a result of having those disclosure requirements. I know that it is difficult in running a company to think about that level of disclosure requirement as one a company might embrace. But we have because we think that over time it will enhance our ability to defend ourselves and make those tax less likely But at the same time there are many things through. Ceo's to consider if you find yourself in that situation of whether to pay ransomware know first and foremost is the ongoing operational impact. And i know that that was top of mind As companies have dealt with this in the past. but i think it's also important to think about reputational impact. I think it's important to think about future impact in terms so if you pay ransomware then it reduces the deterrent from those actors to act again and so we have seen at three hundred. Plus percent increase in ransomware. In the last two years. I think that is largely in part to companies wanting to pay and be able to move on and get back to Their full operations but at the end of the day if that's increasing the threat surface for everyone. Is that the right thing to do. These really tough questions. I certainly wouldn't second guess any company's decision. Because if you're not in that boardroom you know what situation they're facing but these are just some of the things that we certainly would think about. Before making that decision for northrop grumman so fired defense. Industrial base report to government should that be a requirement. More broadly and then in terms of the pain. The ransom Should the government have a role there in other words should should the government regulate or having role with the private sector in determining when. And how ransoms can you pay. Well as i said. I'm a supporter of disclosure requirements. Because i think it makes our collective as a nation stronger in particular for critical infrastructure companies. We see the impact of these attacks and it can be incredibly disruptive both to our national security and our economic security is a nation and so the government does have a role to play in providing for the collective defense is outlined in the constitution. And i think that only as companies are willing to share information that helps them to perform that role. Will we be at our strongest. so i'm an advocate for it In terms of what companies choose to disclose until that becomes mandatory and just encouraged all companies to think about the collective good in this case not just the interest of their singular company because our adversaries aren't thinking about the threat surface as each independent counsel acting alone and they will attack the weakest link and if we can help each other to make our collective defense stronger i think these attacks become less likely to be successful. Ask you you in a time of either flattening or only cost of living increase in to defense budget. How do you think about itby. S aerospace and. Defense industry's competitiveness versus your usual kind of european. Well the us defense industry. I believe continues to be the strongest around the globe and not become as a result of the investment. That's been made in the industry both the private investment as well as government spending and we have seen the chinese defense industrial base grow significantly in the last decade. Because defense spending in china has been on the take and so these things are highly correlated. And we know that. Across europe defense spending has not been as strongly prioritize movement by nato countries to get back to two percent spend on a of their gdp on defense and those are good movements that will help to strengthen the defense industrial base in europe but that consistent funding stream is essential for an industry to do well but we also in the us have access to some of the best greatest minds.

Us aerospace and defense industry's competitiveness versus your usual kind of european competitors. Well the us defense industry. I believe continues to be the strongest around the globe and not become as a result of the investment. That's been made in the industry both the private investment as well as government spending and we have seen the chinese defense industrial base grow significantly in the last decade. Because defense spending in china has been on the take and so these things are highly correlated. And we know that across europe defense. Spending has not been as strongly prioritize Some movement by nato countries to get back to two percent spend on a of their gdp on defense and those are good movements that will help to strengthen the defense industrial base in europe but that consistent funding stream is essential for an industry to do well but we also in the us have access to some of the best greatest minds.

"Be so friend. You're aware we is a member of the defense industrial base requirement to notify the government in the event that we are attacked and it's not related specifically to having a ransom where request it's any vulnerability that we identify in our networks and operations we would disclose in a timely manner and we believe that that makes us and our partners in this industry stronger as a result of having those disclosure requirements. I know that it is difficult in running a company to think about that level of disclosure requirement as one a company might embrace. But we have because we think that over time it will enhance our ability to defend ourselves and make those tax less likely But at the same time there are many things through. Ceo's to consider if you find yourself in that situation of whether to pay ransomware know first and foremost is the ongoing operational impact. And i know that that was top of mind As companies have dealt with this in the past. but i think it's also important to think about reputational impact. I think it's important to think about future impact in terms so if you pay ransomware than it reduces the deterrent from those actors to act again and so we have seen at three hundred. Plus percent increase in ransomware in the last two years i think that is largely in part to companies wanting to pay and be able to move on and get back to Their full operations but at the end of the day. If that's increasing the threat surfaced for everyone. Is that the right thing to do. These really tough questions. I certainly wouldn't second guess any company's decision. Because if you're not in that boardroom you know what situation they're facing but these are just some of the things that we certainly would think about. Before making that decision for northrop grumman so fired defense. Industrial base report to government should that be a requirement. More broadly and then in terms of the pain. The ransom Should the government have a role there in other words should should the government regulate or having role with the private sector in determining when. And how ransoms can you pay. Well as i said. I'm a supporter of disclosure requirements. Because i think it makes our collective as a nation stronger in particular for critical infrastructure companies. We see the impact of these attacks and it can be incredibly disruptive both to our national security and our economic security is the nation and so the government does have a role to play in providing for the collective defense is outlined in the constitution. And i think that only as companies are willing to share information that helps them to perform that role. Will we be at our strongest. so i'm an advocate for it In terms of what companies choose to disclose until that becomes mandatory and encouraged all companies to think about the collective good in this case not just the interest of their singular company because our adversaries aren't thinking about the threat surface as each independent company acting alone and they will attack the weakest link and if we can help each other to make our collective defense stronger i think these attacks become less likely to.

"Can let me jump in here and ask a question occurs to me given the risk surface. Northrop grumman because you're sensitive programs. You're only as strong as your weakest link. Fence companies like yourself lie on small suppliers of millions of parts. Right that you have to you have to together. How do you sure your self worth froman bet. Your smaller vendors suppliers are as secure as you need them to be to protect your own fran. We share with our suppliers information that helps them to understand requirements that we flow to them contractually and i note those two things in conjunction. Because it's not sufficient. We've found to just tell our suppliers you need to agree to do these things to meet a standard for your cybersecurity program. Because they may or may not fully understand what each of those requirements entails so we couple it with education and a very open approach to sharing our practices so that they can learn and and build upon that knowledge is but the second thing that we do is increasingly bring our suppliers into our digital ecosystem and was just referring to that in answering just these question about digital engineering because we're sharing models and were working within a singular digital set of models we bring our suppliers into that ecosystem rather than pushing that information out to them that they have to separately secure. And we've found that. That is a a better solution. Both in terms of how to work together and it gives us better peace of mind that we are securing those Digital ecosystems operator. Next question please. We'll take the next question from katy nelson thompson. Hi this is katie. Thomson with hbo and pbs. I'm wondering how you feel about. The biden administration propose level defense spending. And if it's sufficient to us competitive close certainly. We have spoken about the broad number of threats that we are working to support Both technology advancement as well as the production of weapons systems to have the capacity and capability that our intelligence and military require however We also recognize that we need to be responsible in how deficits are growing and make spending priorities so this administration is balancing all of those demands in looking at how much to allocate toward defense spending and a flat to slightly increasing budget. Projection is what we're expecting with at this point. Seen a white twenty two budget but not a longer term budget that would reflect what twenty three and beyond might hold. But what we're hearing is that that's likely to be in line with inflation. And if that's the case you know that's a very reasonable level of defense spending but it will require prioritization because all of the modernization and research and development priorities that have been outlined by in particularly in particular. The department of defense can't be supported without kind of top line. Budget growth can only ask you taking a question out of recent headlines. One of the real sort of Issues that alcee ios or confronting is how you deal with ransomware attack. Do you notify the us government. How quickly should you be required. If you are to notify the government and then what do you do hey ransom. What are your thoughts on responses to ransom. There.

It appears to be a pretty significant competitive advantage for not grummin cited in the winds in between one gb. Ssd you think that your customers going to force that competitive advantage to erode as it becomes the standard across all suppliers in the industry. What does he. I see most competitive differentiator eroding over time because a market leader will be viewed as doing something that others want to replicate. And so i don't see that is driven by actions. The government will take necessarily in this case. The government absolutely is encouraging industry to adopt digital engineering as well as full digital thread for the manufacturing and sustainment of product. And that's in my view. A area that northrop grumman has moved into a leadership position through a few of the programs that we're executing but that isn't the reason others will do it. They'll do it. Because it makes sense. And that the advantages that it affords to the companies will be worth the investment to get there and so we see this as a first mover advantage in some areas but not necessarily a desire to a co create barriers for others to move in this direction with us as a matter of fact quite to the contrary we are bringing our supply chain along with us on this journey and allowing them to operate in our digital ecosystem very freely exchanging information about how we are creating our digital ecosystem so that they can be successful in executing alongside of us so we think that in this case a rising tide lifts all boats operator next question. We'll take the next question from karen wagner. Hi yes thanks for this very interesting session of thank you. is word for presenting today. I'm caroline wagner from the. John glenn school of public affairs at the ohio state university. My question is related to my what my studies and i look it Scientific strength around the world and i note that increasingly scientific capabilities or spread across globe. Especially as we see in china. China has rapidly risen quality in their scientific capabilities. And i wonder how that affects a company like yours. It is very reliant on science base Do you view the science a base from which you draw to be increasingly global or did you rely on american Us related science. And has that changed or been influenced by strengths or weaknesses within the us science capability. We absolutely open our aperture to the developments globally in science and as a result we have partnerships with organizations outside the united states and we also rely heavily on the us based academia institutions that have raw global networks to have a pipeline into developments outside the us in science. What we have found is that we at a point need to neck down in certain areas where were applying that science to only us citizens that is a limitation in our industry necessarily so to protect some of the most important and Sophisticated technologies that we're developing for the us government and our allies. But it doesn't mean that we don't start by drawing on a broad source of science and research and development that is global.

What are the other national biggest national security threats. You see A and opinions that you share with your other. Ceo colleagues what. A ceo seat is the biggest national security threats. Right now. well. I would say it's not a single threat and that's the largest threat in and of itself the fact that we have to as a nation with our allies spread the resources of our intelligence and military apparatus across a wide spectrum of threats and we need to on one hand when thinking about russia and china have the ability to operate against highly sophisticated adversarial capabilities. But at the same viewing those conflicts as less likely and through more of a deterrence lens while realizing that terrorist activity is still a real and present threat and perhaps more likely on any given day and yet require a very different set of capabilities to counter because those series were not as sophisticated but could be highly effective if we aren't thoughtful about also being able to identify and defend against them and so the breadth of areas that we need to invest in as an industry that we need to remain Innovative is growing and the resources are not budgets. Are are basically flawed. I talked about how research and development as a percent of. Gdp is lower in the last two decades than it was in the earlier part of the twenty century and so when we look at these issues in combination. It's not any one capability area that worries me.

"Who knew green war and there's much written about the new our framework for the nuclear deterrent. That worked extremely well over. Many decades doesn't fit quite as well. Germs of the cyber wrong. Can you give us your thoughts on. How do we deter russia or any adversary in cyber realm such that they are reluctant to most criminal groups to act from their territory. State actors acting on their own. I stayed two. Things is essential in deterring in the cyberspace. The first is a whole of government approach to taking action when we see ad for seri behavior in cyberspace. That's outside what we believe. Is the norms now. First of all as we discussed earlier. There aren't a set of agreed upon norms for operating in cyberspace. Those in my view will only get constructed. As we see activities that we believe out abounds And we take action and that requires a whole of government approach because our national security apparatus is operating in cyberspace in a way to detect and take action against some of these behaviors where our Government through the department of justice has the mandate for taking the judiciary actions to hold adversaries accountable for those behaviors. We clearly need to work. The bounds of was happening outside the us. What's happening inside so involving. Nsa the department of justice and the department of homeland security in a very integrated way toehold adversaries accountable for their behaviors and cyberspace is essential. But i think the other thing that is really important as we consider operations in the cyber domain is that critical infrastructure which is not government controlled needs to invest in its own defenses and also be very open and information sharing with the federal government. So that we can Behave as not only a whole of government but an integrated critical infrastructure which is held in the private sector and government approach to dealing with adversary behavior in cyberspace. So we're through from an has many very sensitive classified eilly classified national security programs which is both a risk right from cyber perspective. How do you think about that. Risk your own networks. And how do you protect it. In age of solar wind and ransomware and colonial pipeline we are as significant target for adversaries nation states as well as criminal behavior and so we invest in this area and it is a boardroom topic. Our cybersecurity posture our plans for not only monitoring but continuing to stay ahead of the advanced threat which we feel is essential for company's operations and maintaining the trust that we have with the government so in order to do that it does require a top down. Commitment to cybersecurity is a priority putting some of our best resources on That area also looking at that risk as one that we put priority to financially invest. In and i just noted a very open approach to sharing information which has been essential for our industry to be able to have agreements with other. What would be competitors on one day but in the case of cyberspace or collaborators. So the other companies that operate in the aerospace and defense industry have nondisclosure agreements between ourselves to share openly. What we're seeing in our networks. And i encourage all industry executives if you aren't doing that within your industry to do so and it's nice to share information with those outside of your industry but what we have seen is that adversaries are so sophisticated that they're using different tactics techniques and procedures by industry knowing where Those industries are most vulnerable. And what the attack. Vectors are. so it's really cheap than a critical part of our defense to have this broad information sharing framework in place within the defense industrial base. The it's an incredible model for as you suggest other sectors. Can you talk about. How did it come together. How long has it been in place..

"To the fifties and sixties in particular that investment that government was making into core technologies that lead to global positioning that led to today's compute that led to today's internet connection of Articles that really has all found a source through government investment and then private industry investment has layered on top of those technology advancements to create commercial applications that impact. Our everyday lives. But i would submit to you that those would not have matured. At the rate they would have if we didn't have strong. Government are in these spending and we certainly wouldn't have found competitive differentiation from a national security perspective through advancing those technologies before other countries if they had all originated in the commercial space because they would have been in the hands of all nations More simultaneously so. I think if we want to look forward at these investments both finding their way into paths for commercial application in commercial investment but also into the keys for military superiority for our nation and our allies. We need to look at robust. Are these spending. I the government that's complemented by private industry. Not it's like to rely solely on private industry to make up that funding shortfall from government. Let me sort of shift the conversation. Our other the other big national security threat at the moment is from russia was become very very aggressive in the cyber realm Talk to me about post the by putin summit. What are the most important were things we need to see going forward. In terms of the our relationship barry scratches is rush. Well certainly as we think about a current capability for weapons of mass destruction. Russia is the country that we would be most concerned about and so the importance of the deterrent that i mentioned earlier particularly for nuclear weapon Deterrence is haste by the russia threat. And we have seen activity particularly in the polar region and in eastern europe. That's quite troubling in indicates that russia is in an expansionary mode. Therefore i think as we look at the nuclear deterrence that we have as a nation. The recapitalization and modernisation is absolutely essential. The second thing that i would point out in terms of relations is that this administration as well as the past to have had to deal simultaneously with very different threats. We just talked about russia. We've talked a bit about china. But we also need to be thinking about nuclear deterrence with north korea and iran and so this really is a period where a deterrent has to be effective across many different nations different interests different abilities to resource their rations. And while i would put russia at the forefront of those thoughts from a nuclear deterrence perspective. We need a deterrent that works across a wide variety of.

"About half of them are controlled by nato countries and therefore a significant portion of them are controlled by other nations and we don't necessarily have the laws of order in space that exist in other domains partly because of the novelty of space operations. So what i see is a focus for creating those norms for operating and there'll be a period of time were already operating in it today where that will be worked out through experimentation demonstration of capabilities and we see that happening With some of what could be our adversaries in particular china who has been very active in the space domain and so this was a topic of conversation amongst the nato countries at the summit a week ago in a really important one for our governments to create some alignment on with those norms should be for space operations. Mucus an example. What what are the areas rethink. Its open to discussion of norms. That could be beneficial for our security in that of our else. We'll space is getting more crowded. And so the first issue and foremost to safety in space that the assets the both able to operate freely and be protected from an adversary's intervention and this isn't a area that's particularly mature as it hasn't been an issue previously assets and space were thought to be some of the most protected and resilient just because they were operating so far from the surface as no longer the case and we can't take that distance as a method of security and resiliency so other ways have to be developed. I think the other area. We'll see significant. Investment by nations is the ability to help situational awareness in space. Track not only are assets that the output sued potential adversaries and keep our knowledge base about what is occurring in space just as we have in the other domains that we've talked about and you know we talked about air but i would say the same exists on the ground in the seas and now in cyberspace as well.

And i have the privilege of presiding over today's discussion. Kathy welcome thank you for doing this. Thank you fran. It's wonderful to be here with you this morning. So let me ask you. You made a personal decision. You were james madison to switch majors and has a dramatic impact on your career right. You made this decision at a young age. I'm curious if you could explain to the members the decision you made y at a point in time when cyber and computers and all of that were less from north thinking which takes me back many years to think about that decision and as most eighteen year olds are probably wasn't well equipped to make it at the time but i had decided that while i was pursuing pre law and thought that i would go on to law school through an internship which was very valuable to me. I realized that that wasn't my passion. And so i did change majors and started to study computer systems at the time. It was the novel field as you pointed out but it was an area that i was interested in. I had always really enjoyed math in particular and it was the way to apply some of those skills in a field that i thought would have nice growth prospects. I had no idea at the time. How significant those growth prospects would be and how central computing would be every industry and everything that we do know a year. A lot about there are not enough women in stem technical technical areas and yet the aerospace defense industry best as i can tell as more women leaders than any other sector i can think of. Why do you think that it's you know it's really hard to put my finger on it as you know. Many of the companies in the space in defense industry have named their first female ceo over the course of the last decade. And i think that we have to look well be for the last decade to understand what changed the industry that allowed women to have the equal opportunity to succeed and reached the highest level in the company. I believe that you know. When i started my career in most industries it was male dominated at the top and you couldn't necessarily see a path but over the course of the last couple of decades more women have forged the path to the top and that has created inspiration for those who might follow. I also think that everyone has become more attuned to create an inclusive culture and environment in the workplace so that fewer decisions get made in the men's room or on the golf course and there's more access for all to be part of those important discussions and get access to the experiences that lead to career progression. And i know say this. I think Having role models such as yourself also helps to inspire younger generation of women so they'll be more opportunities going forward and i certainly. I just wanted to comment that. I certainly look to women who made the steps ahead of me as role models and it does make a big difference to see women. Persevere reach their career aspirations. Lucky asked you. You presided over the integration of orbital. at k we've seen a fair amount of integration in the aerospace defense industry. Can you to us a little bit about what you expect. And what you anticipate going forward what we see additional consolidation in the industry. I have said that. I do expect consolidation not necessarily at the top tier of companies in many cases. We have only two or three companies that are capable of performing some of the most sophisticated weapons systems development programs for nation and i don't think that further consolidation at the tear it would make sense and this administration has made comments to that effect however i do see consolidation amongst smaller and mid tier companies is the budgets flatten and we look at the pivot more technologically advanced systems. That will be required. There will be companies that can't necessarily invest to compete is standalone organizations and really will find a better place in consolidating with companies with deeper Access to capital and more Capability to innovate. I don't think that's an unhealthy thing. All industries go through those cycles and this does and has in the past and it's led to the strength of our defense industrial base that exists today so talk to me one of the Really flagship programs is your space program. But we see this growing commercial you know the the race between base and virgin to get into space and commercialization of it. Can you talk to us. What is your take on that. And and how do you view the your space program which is incredibly important to the us government. I think of spaces domain. It is following a similar trajectory as every other domain that we operate and You can go back nearly one hundred years now and think about air as the domain much the same way we see space evolving in front of us today we had military applications of airplanes and aircraft but also commercial aspirations and those commercial for rations have grown significantly over time the assets coexist and we leverage the knowledge that comes from development in the commercial aviation market into defense and vice versa. I very much see that happening in spaces. Well there will be some companies that focus primarily or solely on commercial others that focused primarily or solely on defense. But there'll be a sharing of technologies that cut across and we see that already happening in space. The northrop grumman portfolio of course stretches from commercial all the way through national security classified efforts and we benefit from dot breadth of both portfolio and experience. So you mentioned spaces domain. Think of air land sea bright all of that cyber as a domain now space but we have adversaries Who with whom we compete on. Can you talk us about how you see the threat to that particular domain and who should we be. Most concerned about as our near pure additives will an interesting in that we have over.

Space station launch in Virginia honors 'Hidden Figures' mathematician
"You probably remember Katherine Johnson from the movie Hidden Figures today. A spacecraft named in honor of the pioneering black NASA mathematician blasted off from Wallops Island, Virginia. 321 Way have engine ignition DSS Katherine Johnsons carrying more than £8000 of supplies to the international space station. Worth from Northrop Grumman traditionally names each spacecraft after a person who played a pivotal role in the legacy of human
Antares rocket launch at Wallops Flight Centre set for Sept. 29
"The Northrop Grumman Antares rocket with cygnus resupply spacecraft on board will head to space. Later this month launching from the mid Atlantic regional spaceport at NASA Wallops flight facility. The Antares launch is the company's Fourteenth Commercial Resupply Services Mission. Cygnus will deliver NASA science investigations, supplies, and equipment to the International Space Station highlights of space station research facilitated by this launch include a plant habitat for radishes the test of a biologic drug that could be used for the. Treatment of leukemia and the Universal Waste Management System. A new compact toilet that astronauts can use on deep space exploration missions a new three, hundred sixty degree virtual reality camera from a Montreal based film. Studio will also be transported to the station. So astronauts can capture a future spacewalk in cinematic virtual reality cargo resupply from US companies insurers a national capability to deliver critical science research to the space station and significantly increases masses ability to conduct new investigations at the only laboratory in space innovation.

They were stored in an all wood, the hanger get this one thousand seventy two feet long two hundred ninety six feet, wide, one hundred ninety two feet high, that took thirty three million board feet of lumber to build originally the basis, one thousand six hundred acres held over sixty buildings, but as of today only thirty five or left standing. In a heavily wooded area paths lead to five separate ammunition bunkers, and the basis littered with dozens of locomotives left rusty on their tracks. There are several aircraft and radar bunkers. Also, it was nineteen forty eight when the base was decommissioned in our story really begins. The two huge hangars were filled with warplanes hanger a contained T. B.. M.

The ghost is probably the spirit of Robert. Smedley, trying to find his way home now travel last six hundred fifty miles. I mentioned to San. Francisco's old hunters point shipyard originally. Originally built on six hundred thirty eight acres of Waterfront. Our story began so the dawn of July first nineteen, forty six, when the able day atomic airburst over tiny Bikini atoll took place over one hundred US military ships surrounded the island of all the vessels. It was light aircraft carrier. US Independence that the government decided to toe into hunters point shipyard intent on finding a way to decontaminate it. They also wanted to determine the potency of the radioactive contamination I. They tried sandblasting. We're left with tons of radioactive sand that had to be packed in of dump some thirty miles off the San Francisco coast next they brought in cats and dogs monitor effects radioactive poisoning on them, then placing the dead contaminated animals into barrels to be dumped into the Pacific. Finally, prisoner volunteers from nearby San Quentin prison were made to clean the ship when they died. You can only guess what happened to their remains. But that's ancient history, the grounds that made up the old shipyard or be decontaminated as soldier real estate investors, one investor reported that when crews were brought out to transient build foundations for his apartment complexes. They stopped short when they approached the side, it was overrun by cats and dogs, and a group of men, wearing vintage prisoner uniforms shuttle days later they were brought in again and found the lots and question deserted. Could the animals have been the spirits of the cats and dogs sacrificed and all those years ago, and what about the group of men were they go? So the volunteers as note of interest the US US independence began to sink before being decontaminated and. And was towed three hundred twenty eight miles out to sea at skull. At least that's what the navy says, but the Ocean Exploration Trust discovered the independence twenty eight miles west of San Francisco Bay and slightly cell of the fair alone
Satellite almost on empty gets new life after space docking
"An interesting idea. It's from a division of Northrop Grumman and what measures one is is. It's a satellite that has a grappler so we can grab other things in space and a lot of fuel and the idea of the program is you can extend the life of satellite that has run out of fuel and his either GonNa be parked or de orbited depending on where it is And and here's the challenge. Satellites are not made with gas caps. They're not generally built to be serviced by other satellites. That doesn't generally happen So you can see what's going on here. North Grim thinks that there is a market in building a satellite that is cheaper to launch and use to extend the life of an older satellite than it would be replaced. That satellite right. It's just it's simple economics here. What if we could make that satellite of yours? That's about to die last another five years. How what would that be worth to you? And if that number is lower than or higher than the price we would charge. Let's say or something like that. You do the math you know like. Oh that's better. Let's do that. So that's what that's what one did a demo with an eighteen year old satellite from. Its until nine one What Intelsat did is moved into a different orbit? So was up there. They actually moved. Until set up to the mid one orbit taking it out of service in doing so and meth one docked with Intelsat nine and one so came a few grabbed it with its grappling system. It's docking system and is now in the process of or over the next month or two is going to push Intelsat back into an operational orbit it will go back in operation and it will have five years more life this eighteen year old satellite with with a buddy satellite attached to it at the end of the five year period when it when Intel sat thinks it's reached the end of its operational. Life is then going to raise it up to a graveyard orbit like we talked about last time where where it's higher orbit above Geo Stationary Orbit. Where there's not a lot of stuff and it doesn't matter if there's dead stuff up there it's not a big deal so they're gonNA they're gonNA push up to a graveyard orbit So that's awesome five years extra life by adding a buddy satellite that can keep it operational and That's not all the plan then is after five years is one will grapple and can go somewhere else and do it again with a different saddling. Reasonable Buddy satellite right as long as it's got propellant and it can grapple stuff it can get to what it needs to grapple. It could do this so you have to is also coming later this year. They're going to use it for a different intelsat satellite and the goal. This time is because you know they wasted propel underuse propellant in taking it out of service and taking it somewhere else to try this the next one. They're going to do it in place. They're literally going to just drive over to wear that. Intelsat. Satellite is while it's operational and just grab it and then extend its life by having new propellant ability to move and even though because generally what seems to be happening. I mean if something breaks something breaks this is not something with like robot surgery to fix up circuit board or something. Although I think a future this stuff is that but in the short term. It's this satellite is cost us. Hundreds of millions of dollars is incredibly expensive electronics. And the only thing. We're missing is propellant. Well that's what the system is. Basically doing is like we will send up a thing full propellant and attach and move your satellite around for you. The great idea until sat says the economics work for them. Which if the economics and work for until SAT IN FOR NORTH OF GRUMMIN? This is really cool. Because you're extending the life of this stuff. It's almost like recycling in outer space. Like you're extending the life of this and you can see how this could get way more complicated down the road in terms of allowing tele presence cars of satellites there. You know the further out. They are the more of a delay. There is but when when you think back to the Hubble missions where they had to fix the Hubble Space Telescope over the course of decades say that was a user serviceable astronaut serviceable thing or I s space walks. You can see and you and I actually saw at least one of these at at Johnson Space Center the experimenting with a robot that can crawl around on the outside of the space station and do repairs. You could also see that. Same kind of thing. Po- possibility for one of these mission extension vehicle satellites to be able to potentially even do repairs. Come you know come by do a repair mission. And if that costs less than replacing the satellite. It's totally worth it. So it was very exciting. There's a lot of this being talked about. Nasa has a plan to do a spacecraft. That's GonNa Attach to an old land sat satellite in low-earth-orbit and and do a connection these. The mavs are built for geostationary orbit. I believe there's a Japanese company that we've mentioned on this before that wants to make like a sticky like web or arm satellite. That can actually just kind of like run into space junk and a ten. Yeah stick to it so that it's no longer space debris so there's a lot of this. We're entering a phase where one of the opportunities business opportunities in space is and from a different angle. You see it with spacex reusing. Its vehicles reusing. Its its first stage is that you make this incredibly expensive satellite and you leave it up there and it's got a lifespan. And then it dies. And it's like a disposable satellite and now there are companies coming along and saying what if we could take that disposable satellite and make it recyclable instead and extend its life and then move it out of the way. It's it you know it makes access to space cheaper right because it means that the stuff is serviceable and presumably over time. My mind started to raise as I was reading the story like presumably over time you would end up with things like perhaps some standard equipment like standard actual docking attachment. And things like that. Where it's like can we all agree? That the satellite's going to have this thing on it so that one of these buddies can come up later and refuel it maybe or or attached to it and move it around but there's so much that's already up there so is they figured it out. Like where do you grab on? How do you hold on? Is it GonNa work and it seems to work. It's awesome
