What's the History of US-Israel Relations?
"Joined first of all from jerusalem by david makovsky distinguished fellow at the washington institute and professor in middle east studies at johns hopkins university david festival. I think when people think about this relationship now it's assumed that this full-throated barely critical support for israel is an article of faith for the united states but if we think back to the foundation of israel in nineteen forty eight was that always the case now not at all the foreign policy establishment of the united states was dead against us. Recognition of israel led by secretary of state. George marshall no foreign policy establishment viewed. Israel is getting in the way of trying to shore up arab support for america's position in the cold war which was deemed critical given the importance of the european recovery and making sure that arab oil slow to europe.

"I'm Scott Simon. When Joe Scarborough is a Republican congressman some 20 years ago, he had portrait of two presidents on his office wall. Ronald Reagan that surprised nobody. But also Harry Truman, a Democrat who was Joe Scarborough explains in a new book was derided as a rube and a strange little man. But who has Joe says exceeded all their low expectations. His book Saving freedom. Truman the Cold War in the fight for Western civilization, Joe Scarborough. Morning, Joe and MSNBC joins us. Thanks so much for being with us, Joe. Thank you so much, Scott. It's great talking to you again. What? Nice to talk to you again. Why was Harry Truman up on your wall? You know a S O. I was raised in the 19 sixties and early seventies by conservative parents and the definition of a conservative and are in the Scarborough household was being you know, Cold warriors, and I always thought throughout high school in college when I was reading about the Cold War and studying it that You know, One of those presidents started the Cold War, and one of them ended it. And actually, the starting of the Cold War was far more difficult because Harry Truman and having to confront Stalin and having to confront the you know Soviet Union's efforts, toe expand westward. Hey, not only had deal with isolationist Republicans, but he had to push back progressives in his own party and Truman Truman was simple man compared to the Certainly Roosevelt the person he succeeded, but hey, had more difficult decisions that he had to make. And the first six months of his presidency than most commander in Chiefs have to make over two terms. Yes, we'll run those down for us, because it's kind of stunning and to a no way obviously diminish Franklin Roosevelt's leadership. You suggest that I'm on something's Truman was actually more clear eyed. But Harry Truman in an interview after he left the White House said heroes know when to die, and Truman claimed to be talking about Abraham Lincoln leaving a mess for Andrew Johnson. But actually, I think most people suspect was talking about FDR. And it's interesting for all those who think that Joe Biden is having a difficult transition right now look back to what Harry Truman had to deal with. FDR knew he was dying during the campaign, he told trim and Hey, don't fly in planes. One of us need to stay alive. Truman get sworn in knowing that he was going to be president sooner rather than later. And yet when FDR died, Harry Truman knew nothing of the Manhattan project knew knew nothing of of the secrets and government he found out after his first Cabinet meeting when Stimpson came over and said, Hey, I need to talk to you about something and Within several months, he had to make the decision on how he was going to wrap up the war in Europe, whether he was going to drop atomic bombs onto Japanese cities. And then, of course, this book's talks about what happens a year and a half later, when it becomes obvious that Stalin has designs on grace on Turkey and on Central and Western Europe and then Harry Truman has to get the action and a time when a lot of Americans were just tired of war, right? I mean, most Americans had didn't want did not want to have to confront who they considered to be a good ally during the war, they had been exhausted by four years of war. By 400,000 deaths by rationing. The last thing they wanted to do was beat Nazism back and then have to worry about Soviet communism. But that's exactly that's the you know. Harry Truman had said to his Cabinet, he said, Guys, this is gonna be the toughest selling job I'll ever have is the president is Push people out of the isolationism and peace time That really had been in the American tradition since George Washington's farewell address, Joe while we have you, I have to take advantage of the opportunity. Ask you this question. Donald Trump has been good for cable news ratings. Going to miss him is President. Oh, my God. No. Remember, Remember, the less moon vest? Quote Go bad for America. Good for cables are good for TV ratings. And I remember saying to make a my God I would take cancelation and any any moment, Iet's thoroughly exhausting and a a sort of a 24 7 news culture that's focused on Responding. The Donald Trump's latest shocks his latest tweets, and it's actually bad for America. That sort of news coverage has been bad for America. Where politics and this has been happening over the past 20 years, and the cable news deserves much of the blame, as does the political talk radio and now Facebook, But politics has become a sport. You know we even when even when I was in Congress, I could sit down and talk to the most liberal Democrat, and we could figure out a way to strike a compromise on long term care or on education reform. And we could get it done these days because it's become so tribal and become such a sport. I think, in large part because of the media, uh, it makes it impossible to strike the deal. So you have this sort of deals and Harry Truman did with, you know, Chairman Vandenberg, the past the Truman Doctrine and NATO and And make the changes He made just Scarborough. His book Saving Freedom. Thank you so much for being with us again. Take care. Thank you so much for having me..

"Fusion, a leadership that in part, at least the Trump administration was elected to undo in its largely celebratory coverage, the press unwittingly emphasizing what this restoration represents the triumph of its own class. It is highlighting how completely and lacks step. The various elements of the new and old establishments now are the media and tech platforms. The global corporate boss ocracy. The vast over Fed Washington policy crowd who's different characters pop in and out of government with a chain of presidents without leaving. A footprint on the receding sands of American leadership. Harry Truman famously reminded us that the canine friendship is the only enduring loyalty When things go wrong in Washington, Joe buying in his administration will at least have plenty of other friends to provide comfort. As they set out on yet another familiar journey. Gerard Baker, today's Wall Street Journal, essentially saying the media are a bunch of lap dogs that the establishment is back in power. The media's part of that establishment that there is no critical scrutiny at all. Instead, we're going to go back to the same old, same old of fawning all over every policy decision. We saw in the Obama years even though most of those decisions failed, even though the Trump administration that the media was so hostile to was wildly successful in many of these areas. It's impossible to imagine Trump who got nothing but vicious coverage from the White House Press corps. Getting 11 million to the fighting that Biden is already gotten. The point of all this and the point that I think Baker is making Is that the media was supposed to be the watchdog and all in government, and instead it's become a cheerleader and mouthpiece for a leftist establishment. What is the point of granting the media all of these privileges and all of these freedoms if It's serving no rule other than being Spokesperson and cheerleader for one side. It's six.

"Welcome to cats Miss and Mysteries. I'm kept crumb today real Ruckus Ray. I know you were watching the quote debate intensely. What was your takeaway? Well kid, there were a lot of subtleties and that's what real Ruckus it's all about separating the chaff from the wheat, but the obvious messages will be rehashed over and over the fowl obvious things that were said by Mister Trump and mr. Biden you can catch on your podcast and mass media and and wherever you take in your news, but what I'm going to do is I'm gonna forget about my fact-checkers and forget about my constitutional historical professors and I'm going to talk about one key message. Okay, r a little trepidation. What would that message be that message is vote and I'm going to cover a lot of interesting territory on this kit. All right. We'll take it away Ray. Okay with all and I've just said talking to mr. Crum and the back of your head. The question comes out. Why vote now, this was something that was it was his life on by both the president and the vice president. Mr. Trump and mr. Biden. So I I asked a question. Why vote most of us walk around in a naively Elevate wage state of impunity. No one is going to forcibly tell us what to do or limit where we can go. Nobody is going to kick down our door or drain our bank account. But this moment in time there is a raised awareness of civil rights now hang in with me on this because I'm bringing it all to him ahead to a point. This might be illustrated by peaceful protest wage. The civil rights that is these folks would declare their First Amendment right of freedom of speech now, if you're pro-nra, then you might cite the Second Amendment of the Constitution the right page. To bear arms these and many other protections come from a piece of paper the Constitution and yet if not enforce the Constitution becomes meaningless Le meaningless still may I ask you to question? Why vote if we allow the provisions of the Constitution to be ignored just once and only a single part because we agree with the ideology and other people in charge at any given moment in time, then you might as well start a racing aspects of the Constitution that you and they don't agree with thus rendering our constitutional democracy damaged again, I ask why vote a damaged and ignored Constitution like a bad case of poison oak may seem superficial at first but not burn that poison oak and inhale the smoke what was once superficial is now internal and damaging your lungs the problem, is that a damaged Constitution like damaged lungs Mekong. Around for a long time without a quick fix the question why vote now evolves into who do you vote for? Who do I put in a position of power? Well Article 2 of The Constitution is impossibly vague about the president's Powers. But if we were to look back over the past one hundred years there would be no denying an increase in what are called executive powers powers that bypass Congress you would see that presidents during that hundred year. Ruled by executive power rather than by Consulting with off and getting approval by the Constitution as a constitution says and with these executive powers, they direct a massive administrative state with jurisdiction over everything from Environmental Policy to regulation of the airwaves throughout the last hundred years presidents of waged undeclared war without Congressional confirmation. This would include Harry Truman in North birth. Korea President Richard Nixon and Cambodian President Bill Clinton in Bosnia Franklin Roosevelt imprisoned over 100,000 Americans during World War II numerous presidential called in federal troops to suppress working-class inserections, which ended in American death recently President George W bush secretly authorized spying on Americans inside the United States without any review from the courts these unregulated Powers accrue overtime and remain as a part of the Office of the President Bush is why it's important to not just vote but to examine who you are voting for and perhaps asking how will they address these unopposed Powers executive powers off then a constitution and political scholars believe there is a very real chance of our democracy failing In Our Lifetime with tyranny taking his place. That means somebody could kick in your wage. Or somebody could drain your bank account. Someone could tell you when and where you can go the fourth President of the United States. I was James Madison said factions formed public opinion spreads quickly particularly on issues that evoke ideology and passion people become polarized and look for opinions that mirror existing beliefs and isn't that where we are now as a country as people forming ideology based on passion and political opinions that mirror existing beliefs, so I say vote and vote carefully because a person you put in power maybe the first nail in the coffin of our constitutional democracy think about it off and remember question conventional wisdom, and don't believe everything you think.

When you look at the last election, 40% of the evangelical stayed home and 20% there, Marty registered, so we've got some people we need to get in a choir. You know if I want a Christian, I kill myself. Just over that fact, I got to tell you when I hear that. I cannot believe I cannot believe we complain about Gavin Newsom in California. And then I found out most of the evangelicals in California didn't Even vote. They have a bad world view. It is not a biblical worldview. They think it is their wrong. It's a tragedy. Ah, Governor Huckabee. You've just been a voice for for these issues for Christianity, Capitalism in the Constitution, your whole public life. Obviously you were the governor of the Great State of Arkansas that tell us What you see happening right now in this country and with this election Eric. The lack of people's knowledge of history is killing us. It's destroying this country. People have no idea who America really is and what it's foundations are, and one of the reasons that I was very excited when Steve came to me and said he wanted to Partner with me on this book that really highlights the underpinnings of our nation. The three things that without we fall apart, and one is the Judeo Christian Foundation of Spiritual outta that you cannot talk about America cannot understand America without it. The second being capitalism. Our economic system is critical to our success and this stunning prosperity that America has built in a very short period of time and then the Constitution. So what? I think a lot of people do not understand. I don't know how they got through school. Did they pass civics? Did they ever learn about the uniqueness of our system? Let me give you one example. I think a lot of people miss, including people that he got elected to Congress, for heaven's sakes. The essence of our Constitution is not so that the government can put restrictions on us and tell us what we can and cannot do. It is not a government document. To tell citizens the no nos It is a document that tells the government get your hands off the people and let them be free and the constitution is essentially on organizational document. But its foundation. It's fundamental truth is, the government is limited. The people are not let the people be free and we really go into great detail in the book and pointing out the specifics of how these founders I think inspired by God came up with a system of government. That is absolutely 100% unique. And it is the foundation for why our government up until now, anyway, has been so incredibly empowering to ordinary people and giving them a shot to do things they otherwise never could have done. Well, the left has put out a narrative that's a that's a false narrative, of course, that that basically says we're not a Christian nation and like all lies, it's half true. In other words, we're not officially a Christian ancient because the founders were geniuses who understood that if you make something Officially Christian. If it becomes part of the machinery of government, it ceases to be free. And so they said, We're going to have freedom of religion. And we're going to allow America to be the most Christian nation in history by not making it officially Christian in the way that some of the European nations were officially Christian, And that is the conundrum because whenever you're talking with the left, they immediately go to terms like theocracy and you know, and they act as though you have a choice. Between being officially Christian and being officially secular, and in fact that's a lie. We are deeply Christian and a naked public square stripped of faith is not what the founders wanted. I don't know if either of you wants to comment on that. But that to me is is part of the difficulty because the media has worked with that false narrative. I think the separation of church and state I believe they do. And one time when I was pastor and I was a chaplain of the high school football team. We've prayed before and after the games in front of the fans, I didn't know I was doing something unconstitutional, according to But if you look at what they're thinking and how they brought in the big bear out of school if there is this separation, church and state like they say, the first people to violate the Constitution of the guys who framed it in the first place because they wanted the Bible text. In school, and they wanted prayer involved. And they felt like if you wouldn't read the Bible in school. You know what you're like. They're not going to read it in life. What we know that generations, Church and state go ahead guide Governor Well, I was going to mention the fact.
A President out of the loop- Black Ops
"Welcome kits, myths, and mysteries cider host kid crumbs today I thought with rumors of a new coal or between America and Russia I do something on the birth of black ops most have become familiar with the term black ops short for block world operations from television and movies. It started with the Manhattan project and later the Atomic, Energy Commission, the atomic bomb was shrouded in. Secrecy by the Manhattan project that wrote the rules on black ops to further that point the world learned that America had dropped an atomic bomb on her Shimon. No one knew at that time or was more surprised than the US. Congress none of the members had any idea that it was being developed by President Harry. Truman had been equally stunned to learn about the bomb. When he became President Truman had been the chairman of the Senate Special Committee to investigate the National Defense Program when he was vice president meaning that he was in charge of watching how money was spent during World War Two. Yet he had no idea about the atomic bomb, the bombs price tag adjusted for inflation costs twenty, eight, billion dollars the Manhattan project employed two hundred. Thousand people it had eighty offices, dozens of production plans including a sixty thousand Acre facility in rural Tennessee, and no knew the Manhattan project existed after the War Congress was given control over the bomb. They created the Atomic Energy Act Nineteen, forty six, a terrifying new system of secret keeping presidential system was governed by presidential executive orders regarding national security information, but the new atomic energy. Commission formerly, the Manhattan project was now in charge of regulating national security information for the first time. In American, history of Federal Agency would be run by civilians that is to say that the Atomic Energy Commission would maintain a body of secrets classified factors other than presidential executive orders. In other words, ABC would keep the precedent out of the loop concerning certain secrets it was. Also the ADC created the term born classified. This meant that the Atomic Energy Commission could classify something that originated outside the government through think tanks and research from private parties. In other words, the e C could hire a private company to conduct research for the commission and the result of the research would be born classified leaving the president out of the loop while all this begs. The question of where all this clandestine research would take place the ask through course would be area fifty one and what pray tell would this research be on area fifty one was born depending on your source about nineteen fifty one, the Atomic Energy Commission was formed in nineteen, forty six. So wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that early research was on spy planes like the. To the flew over Russia but one, year nineteen, forty seven after the creation of the Atomic Energy Commission a flying saucer crash on a ranch just outside Roswell. New Mexico wreckage and bodies were whisked off to area fifty one fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six six when ninety two people came forward with witness reports of what happened back in nineteen, forty, seven, slash nine, hundred, forty, eight. This nineteen eighty-six event raise the public awareness concerning the Roswell. And certainly peaked interest in flying saucers general underlying that interest is always the cry that the government knows about flying saucers and alien life. But the truth is that they are probably as much in the dark as a general public think Atomic Energy Commission to hammer home. It was President Bill Clinton, who in January nineteen, ninety three, the beginning of his first term requested that the head of his Justice Department find out if there really were UFO's that sounds to me like a precedent that's out of the loop.
How Hiroshima survivors helped form radiation safety rules
"Now, we have contributing correspondent Dennis normal. He wrote this week on how seventy five years later. The survivors of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki have transformed understanding of the effects of radiation exposure on health. Hi, Dennis Arthur we're talking about study. Now. Run by Ari are asked, which is the Radiation Effects Research Foundation this is a very long-term study as I mentioned almost seventy five years. Years and included many many survivors over one hundred thousand. How exactly did this study get started all those years ago? Virginia's Harry Truman authorized launch of the study was in nineteen, forty, seven. They were pretty much should have a full team on the ground in Yoshii Nagasaki. By nineteen, forty, nine, thousand, nine, hundred fifty. The US Navy realized that there would be a bathroom studying the acute impact and. And the long term impact of what happens to humans when they are subjected to the detonation of Tom These survivors involvement in such a long-term study has yielded an amazing array of results, important results for health for anyone who's exposed to radiation and work or an accident. What are some of the key findings from this work us? Not just one study. They actually have a collection of different studies. Studies, they have carried out the most notable one. Is this enormous life span study where they have as you mentioned one hundred twenty thousand people who were enrolled at the outset? If you put together the combination of number of participants and the length of the study, there's probably nothing else like the RRF in his predecessor ABC city simply gathered data on how radiation has long term effects on health. Health of those who were exposed to radiation the Rif previously ABC gathered that data mix epidemiological connections between the amount of radiation. Someone gets and their risk of developing cancer later in life, other or decisions take that data and data from other studies as well, and they turn those into recommendations for the amount of exposure that people should be allowed to get if they are patient for medical imaging. Imaging, or if they are, the technicians were if their nuclear pact workers this gives away how old I am, but I went to the dentist pornography child. You sit in the dental chair and the dentist would real office machine thick x rays of your teeth, and those were go bouncing all over the room these days for dental x Ray. They put you in a special room which shielded technician. Technician is wearing a badge to track how much radiation he or she is exposed to. You're also wearing that vest to protect your organs from straight X rays all those recommendations shielding around the x ray rooms, dosimetry badges with technicians, where and the vest the patients where they all grew out of basic data that was produced by the long term studies by RRF INC with the survivors we talked. Talked about how this research got started very soon after the bombings, US government, Edna Japanese, government, and boasted research with survivors, but with different purposes. How are they different? Hauer their intentions with the studies different. The ABC was very much an American stony when the ABC's got started was so under America's occupation, and the Japanese scientists had difficulty publishing their observations amount of information that was released Japanese. was very much controlled by the occupation of Nargis, so there were real restrictions on what the Japanese scientists could do, but that initial collection of data by the US groups was over within a few months later there was a decision to set up a long-term study of the effects of radiation and at that point yet. Of the Japanese scientists in the American scientists were pretty much aligned. You mentioned in the story that the survivors weren't treated by the US scientist when they were involved in the study. Initially, that's right. Basically for political reasons, the decision was made that the ABC said he would not offer any treatment to the people who were being examined by the ABC physicians. They concern was that if the ABC city which at that time was very much? American funded American. If. They offered treatment. It might be taken as an admission of culpability in their condition, because misunderstandings and friction between the survivors, many of whom believe that they would get some help for doing with their illnesses with their injuries. Yeah, why would a survivor become involved in the study? If they weren't going to get treatment, even decades later if that was the history of the study. Initially. There was a hope that they would get some sort of medical benefit from participating in the study, the didn't get zero. In particular children that were born to survivors got medical checkups that there would not have received not been part of the study later as one of the survivors told me he has continued to cooperate with the study because he hopes that it will help the world recognize how devastating, the effects are of attack using atomic weapons, and so that is what motivates him to continue to cooperate. It's not clear whether there are. Are Health Effects for the offspring of survivors, but this survivors children are obviously concerned about their health. Can you talk about about this tension with the scientists say is that their studies so far have not identified any affects the question is. Are there no effects or are statistical data simply not detailed enough to spot affects the friction arises. Is that some of the children of the survivors? But we've that they are facing health issues that are not faced by big response were not subjected to the. It's on bond radiation, so the children what? As survivors as second-generation survivors, and they now have to court actions going forward, try to force the the government to recognize that the children of survivors should be recognized, says survivors as well, and that should also be entitled to medical support it just as their parents are

Is it possible to have too much humility?
"Our for this week's episode talk about something a little on the personal side for me? I want to talk about humility. Some personality traits fall into the more is better category. Meaning you should always strive to be more or have more of them things that conscientiousness and kindness other traits can be more accurately placed on a bell curve. Means a right amount and having too little or too much can be a problem. Things like empathy and inclusion fall into this category. Yes seriously you probably know someone to work with. Someone who over index on empathy they carry the emotional burdens of other so deeply could it hinders their own ability to function accomplish tasks need to learn how to compartmentalize more. You probably work with someone who's to inclusive they'll reschedule a meeting because one of the eight people who were supposed is to attend can no longer make it instead of just catching that person up in a different way. Humility falls into this category to. There's a right amount of humility to have and it's something I've personally swung the pendulum on very wide in both directions in my own life. When I was in my late teens and early twenties I was told several times by leaders and Co workers that I needed to keep my ego in check and it was hard? I repeatedly received accolades for doing things while at work and often went to my head and because they didn't really need to rely on my co workers for any of my success. It was easy to act like an island in and strut around. Like I knew I was good looking back. I don't think I was any worse than can be expected of any young person. New to the workforce being told they're really good at what they do but nevertheless started to take on leadership roles these for positive impact my ability to my job a lot more than I didn't have people putting up to me then. One day I came across a quote that would become my favorite of all time former president. Harry Truman once said it's amazing what you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit. I'm not sure why this resonated with me but it did. I started contemplating all the effort I put into. I'm not the work itself but in a making sure everyone knew I was the one who did it. I then started thinking about how much more can accomplish a fight instead. Put the effort into the work itself. It required a ton of disciplined for several years. But the fact that I saw results interpersonal relationships with my peers and my direct reports was motivating and more than half the time ended up getting credit for my compliments. Anyway just through to the work of someone else bringing light to it rather than myself. Over time I went from pretending I didn't care who got the credit for my efforts to actually not caring who got the credit. It was free by the time I had more than a decade in the workforce. I started seeing that on a long enough time line. The people who matter will always eventually figure out which employees are working hard. and which ones aren't that. It wasn't about any single Action or project or outcome but rather the entirety of the contribution. Each person makes I believe this. Evolution was necessary my life and I believe it has served me well. But it's a double edged sword an English too far in the opposite direction years ago I found myself in a position where the majority of the work was remote. It had a fair amount of travel. But when I wasn't traveling I was able to work from home. I I saw my family. A Lot. Didn't have to say not many things and I still got my work done. Every project has gone was completed correctly and I believe I did some really great work during those years but one day out of the blue I was told my position was being eliminated. I was being let go. I was shocked. There was no explanation of the position was going away. I asked specifically if there was a performance issue and I was told there wasn't wasn't I was a little hurt and a lot surprised but I moved onto the next phase of my career about a year after this happened. I ran into a former coworker from this job. And we reminisced a little emotionally. Personally I'd long moved on so I asked her pointedly. She'd heard anything of the time about one position but eliminate or if there was anything that had been kept from me. She said very candidly that. No one on the team of people who I made. The decision had any idea what I did there that for several months a few people even opined whether I did any work at all I was blown away. Actually not us being dramatic I started listing off all the projects excite spearheaded and completed on my own. Just in the last six months I was there. She knew about all of them but didn't know they were my work. I gun so far in the opposite direction of making sure that everyone saw my accomplishments events that I realized I'd failed to do any self promotion at all. The project that completed were attributed to others in the office who weren't remote and whose faces were visible by their coworkers. Every day it it was a huge hard lesson for me. I'd spent so much time working on making sure. No one saw me as a person who hogged the spotlight that succeeded in making sure no one saw me at all and when it comes to your workplace this is just as bad place to be. I've done some serious soul-searching over the years since this happened and I still have a very difficult time with self promotion when I make an attempt. It always feels like I'm bragging but I'm getting better. I'll continue to get better. The right balance is important companies. Face it all the time when it comes to corporate social responsibility if it organizations constantly touting the plays at saving the planet potential customers believe. They're only doing those things to get the credit rather than because they actually care and this impacts every individual to as leaders continued to be expected to do more or with less as they find themselves with more and more people in their charge more and more people whose development is their responsibility it will become more commonplace for leaders to miss many of the contributions made by their people. They'll see the work but they wanna who made it happen unless someone tells them sometimes it will be your responsibility to make sure others know what your contribution is other times. You'll be able to trust that. Things work themselves out either way remember that while humility is incredibly important it can come with undesired outcomes when taken too far
Browns Make It Official
"We will start with the official news out of Cleveland Scavenge to ban skis hired by the browns. They announce officially on Monday. He's thirty seven. Spent fourteen seasons as an assistant in Minnesota but has never been a head coach at any level level his entire. NFL coaching career. As I mentioned has been with one organization the Minnesota Vikings Stansky took over play calling duties on offense late in the two thousand eighteen season. Minnesota ran the ball. Forty seven percent of the time with Danske asked the play caller. That's the second highest rate in that span trailing only the Baltimore Ravens was introduced at a press conference just a little while ago. I the foremost success starts with people and I know we'll talk a lot about culture but it is absolutely about the people and everybody knows the Harry Truman quote. It's amazing what you can accomplish when no one cares who gets. That's the credit and that's what I believe. We have in our building. We have great people. I know we're going to add to it will hire G. G. M. here in the next week can or two and we're going to add to this culture that that we're building here and we have the right people and again. I can't stress enough. How excited I am the be? Just a part of did you know to use a basketball terms to my dad can understand this. I want to be the point guard for this organization. I want to bring the ball up then I wanNA share the basketball and let so what else get an easy bucket though smiling over there. WE'RE NOT GONNA I'M NOT GONNA speak anything into existence right now I can. I promise you that we're GONNA work. I've already spoken to a few of our players already. And that's what I'm about I'm about working and I'm about putting a foundation together the other. We will be methodical about it. We will not skip. Step two two and three to get to four. We're GONNA start in the foundation and then we're going to reinforce foundation Shen said we can build upon it and when I'm talking about this I'm talking about schemes and technique will be diligent about working with our players so that they can develop into the the best versions of themselves and ultimately we're building a foundation for what we hope is a championship. Effort will have a culture of accountability. We'll have structures is in place the players will understand our rules. And what we're about and we're going to demanding and we're going to hold each player accountable. Because ultimately I know this about players they they May Not come out and ask you for that. But that's what they want. Well perhaps the tenth. TIME IS THE CHARM IN CLEVELAND. Stansky is the tenth full time head coach Wjr. The browns have hired since returning to the League in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine that is the most in the league over that span of the previous nine. None have posted a winning record. Heard and not a single one has lasted more than four seasons continuity and consistency has been a real issue in Cleveland. Victor certainly something they'd like to you see changes to fanciest step in the right direction. In your opinion will I believe he is and I think that consistency where it is important. And right because you put up that list of all the coaches and the coaches that they've they've pretty much funneled through throughout the years can you provide that level of stability that they've been seeking for almost a year in and year out. Can you provide that for their now. The thing I do like about Stansky a fan ski is that he has experience with creating plays for two star receivers and I think that's something that's going to have to translate over to the Cleveland. Browns obviously with Odell Beckham junior junior and Jarvis Landry and having that experience I'm sure enticed of that for an office inside bring him in and understanding that they got to get the best out of these players in the best out of all their play makers obviously nick included In the backfield now is he going to be a leader of men and he is he going to be able to handle. The Eagles and the different personalities is that are in that locker room. Desk the biggest question that still remains to be seen. It's defense gas interviewed with the browns. Before in fact it's believed that he was the first source of politics but Desta several seasons ago and and it didn't work out. Matt you spent time with him as part of that Minnesota Vikings Organization. What can you tell us right? He he was a young quarterback coach at the time. And so when I got there was actually a little bit older than he was which is an interesting dynamic but at the same time. He's been all around that building. You know he's an administrative assistant and when he started there then. He was a quarterback coach. He's I've been with the running backs he's been with the wide receivers so he's been in all the different elements of the offensive side of the ball. He's seen the ups and downs. He's seen how free agency can impact so he's got a great feel feel. He's a great leader. He's got a presence about himself in the other thing that I think that the Cleveland browns are probably drawn to is the simple fact that this is a very quarterback friendly offensive structure that he's presented presented in for a guy like Baker Mayfield that had had his struggles last year. And maybe some confidence issues. Maybe not though. Let's see the press conference the same time. It's a quarterback friendly. There's a lot of play action. There's a lot of movement of the pockets. A Lotta easy throws to be made screen. And then there's like you said that balance forty seven percent percent of the time the run the ball. There's great balance in that offensive structure in for a young quarterback and going into his third year after some struggles. I think this is a great fit for that organization Asian and going back to when they actually made this higher People in Cleveland were telling me that it was actually his run game because we see what he was able to do with Dowling Cook and how he was able to make become a good player to really a great one and he's a central part of that offense that we now see in Minnesota and that was a big part of it but in terms of now Cleveland going forward looking for GM the way it was explained to me is they really want these to head coach and gm to work as one. This is why they moved on. From John Dorsey Percy and Freddie Kitchens. They didn't feel like this was working together. So they're looking for someone who has the same vision and the analytics department obviously is of of crucial part of Cleveland. And what they're looking for a head coach and I think that's why Stefanski became that lead candidate because he's accepting of it. He wants to be part of that and You know I think I saw some reports out there about how Cleveland is demanding that their head coach presents the game plan to ownership and really the way it was explained to me. It's not so much that they want to see the game plan. They just want everyone to be in sync to go over to make sure they're all on the same page headed into the game. Well you can't blame him and and that is something that clearly was not the case. I think you make a great point. It's poor in that somebody come in and be able to work and mold Baker Mayfield but also be able to be the CEO and run this whole organization and have everybody else be accountable. I think Freddie Kitchens might have had one of those two things that went by the wayside outside the quarterback with the hiring in Cleveland. What it does mean? Is that every chair on the head. Coaching carousel is now accounted for. The browns were the fifth and final team to hire a new head coach in the off season. Three of the hires tires Stefanski as we just discussed Joe Judge with the giants and Matt Raw and Carolina our first time. NFL head coaches the other two quite the contrary contrary Mike McCarthy in Dallas Ron Rivera in Washington they will get a second chance or in some cases third or fourth various established. NFL head coaches of of all the five. Who Intrigues you? The most in their new spot intrigues me is Matt Rule. I WanNa see what really transpires here right. He seven years sixty million dollar contract. That's a big commitment big commitment. I mean we might need to think about going into coach. That's it has everything else that they're also saying that they're making a commitment to Cam Newton with the type of style and the offensive structured. That they've set up McCaffrey's there I mean they've got the pieces of the puzzle there now. It's interesting to see how that that offensive structure from college translates to the NFL. which is I mean? There's been guys like chip Kelly in the past right John Harbaugh's price guy. That's been the most successful but that was more of a pro style offense with the most the most recent Kingsbury in Arizona so cliff Kingsbury. Excuse me it's been a mixed bag. There's no question. Let me ask you this just circling back to something you said by hiring Matt rule it you believe this means a commitment to Cam Newton. Can you explain why why I just think that The Baylor and watching their offense of structure and the RPO that takes place that's run pass options and all the different things that they're well versed in and that the Baylor offense has been historically historically very successful with in terms of that offense of structure I just think that that Fits Cam Newton's game very well and so I believe that that's a statement saying look. We wanted to bring somebody in here that you're going to be comfortable in this type of offense of structure and go out and be able to put yourself in a position to have success extent to intrigue you for me. Is Joe Judge my beloved giants. I think well I just think because going into it. Once I saw the Vacancy Happen at the head coaching position I was all right. The giants are GonNa come in here and get either like a Ron Rivera type or even McCarthy and get a guy that will come in and commanding presence. Once he walks into the building and I think with the hiring of Joe Judge just left me like okay I. It felt like the same cycle almost felt like coach mcadoo a couple years ago when you give a guy a shot and bring him in if he can transcend The coaching position or the year. After that when you bring in Pat Shurmur and you try to bring take a chance on another guy. Felt like we're taking another chance on another guy but granted. I must say I loved after the press conference I loved his mannerisms I love. He literally embodied what the New York Giants Football Organization is all about when he stepped up there on that podium Liam so I say that with a grain of salt because I love the press conference and I think he's going to bring something different than the other two coaches did in the past. But I still left me scratching my head in terms of who was out there here in the type of guys that could've came in that building and commanded a present these guys by the way Matt Rule and Gioja Geno. It's not about winning the press coverage but they did rule who was must see TV. I was just watching. He's missing time with the giants. Who so I knew all about? He's got does I think you know obviously recruiting such a big part of being a head coach in college. You don't mean to recruit You know when you're in the NFL. Which is why? I'm an agreement with you. I think that is the most enticing match COPA or at least the situation of the coaches just because you just look at history and making that jump from college the NFL. It's not easy and there just hasn't been a high success rate there. I think obviously he spent a little time with a giant. So it's not like he's
Build for the Years You Cant See
"When John I brought the twins home from the hospital. I was secretly horrified that the doctors let us take them home. They were tiny baby. Girls born seven weeks too early and I remember wondering if responsible grownup should be in charge. I'm not the only parent to feel that way. I've heard lots of other parents say similar things wouldn't feel capable but we didn't have the luxury of waiting for our feelings to catch up with our reality. There was just too much work to do whether you're a parent or not. You most likely know that parenting babies is tedious. And hard and magical and the worst and also rewarding and thankless and sometimes it's all of those things in the same five minutes but the one advantage we have as humans in the world who parent babies is you know that the goal is not for them to remain babies the goals for them to grow up. And there's a lot of evidence around us pointing to the fact that this is what happens. Babies grow up parents for the most part in the big picture scheme of things. We understand that a lot of what we do is laying the groundwork planting the seeds and building for the years as we can't see and so that's one thing in parenting but what about in other areas of life that have less of a track record. What about in areas where? We're trying something new do and we don't really know anybody else who's doing it. Maybe we make that big decision and we listened to our life and we decide to answer the invitation to create to make a change to write a book to foster a child or make a move or do something different than the status quo. And then we get into the daily grind of that work and at first it's great and may be hard but it feels worth it but eventually we find out as much like parenting a newborn one day after the next each day the same as the one before nothing major really happens. There's lots of exhaustion and before we know it there's a question always lurking beneath the surface. Did I make the the right choice. Am I wasting my time. One example of that for me he was win. I finally said Yes to pursuing writing as a job now of course it wasn't like I woke up one day and was like I'm going to become a writer. I'm going to do that now. It was gradual but after I made the decision then once I started doing the work of a writer that's when the doubt started to creep in if I felt like I was waiting for a feeling of competency and then I thought maybe I got this whole calling thing wrong since I just felt so inadequate in the work. Now I see that can be a gift if I wanted to be. We don't have to wait to feel qualified certified or professional instead and we can work from a small curious and willing place no matter what the work is and from that place if we look around. We'll we'll see countless brave strugglers doing the work around us and we'll be happy to be among them. We are not alone another thing. I learned as I began to write right. was that embracing my limitations is actually better than fighting them. There's a temptation to think that man if I only had more time or more energy or money or talent or if I could just see more results quicker than I could finally reach my potential but I'm learning the importance of listening to my limits to see what they might have to teach me even when my elements are just short vision and an inability to see the results as quickly as I want to instead of holding me back from what I think I should be doing. Perhaps those limitations Sion's can lead me forward into the work that's meant just for me. Finally I learned the work. I love and choose. It's still work. I can say with a fair amount of confidence that I'm living in step with my calling. Broadly still as much as I really do. Love my work and what I do it helps to remember it still work. The great writers I admire. Don't wake up feeling inspired or breathing out sparkly dust of wisdom and talent every the other minute they wake up needing coffee and a shower just like I do and then they get to work and often their process looks like a lot of hair twirling and window staring procrastinating. And they don't give up they persevere through the boredom the discouragement the lack of results and the distractions to create work. That matters because they believe it matters and they trust that it will eventually somehow live beyond them. I may admire and learn from others but I don't don't disrespect their work by Romanticizing. Their process work. We love is still hard work. It helps me to remember that one of my girls is a sophomore in high school now but when she was in sixth grade seventh grade but I spent a day with her and her middle school band at an amusement the park where they performed for very official looking judges after their performance they found out that they earned a superior rating which is the highest rating. That you can get as a middle school band will. It was a big deal for their little band the first time that they've scored that Hi. My daughter. Who at the time was? The only female trumpet player was thrilled. After the excitement of their score as the kids dispersed into the park to voluntarily strap themselves into metal cars and allow their bodies needs to be hurled through time and space particulars speeds. Well I walked with their band director on two feet and Ed slow pace the way God intended humans to travel. Thank you very much still overcome with their success. The band director. She told me that five years ago she brought the kids here to the same park for the same competition and she said they were terrible. She said we didn't even get a plaque with any rating at all much less a superior I thought about that for a while afterwards. It's five years ago. These particular students weren't even middle school yet but the work she did with the band in the past five years built up and each year they improved in fact that next year after the year they earned a superior rating at the competition. The band director told me that she had a record number of sixth-graders signed up for beginning band. And now that I've talked about the band way too much I just have to say this. It all counts all the work you're doing towards that thing you're doing the tiny steps forward a little bit here a little bit there. The embarrassment of what feels like failure the lack of recognition the waiting and the listening it all counts. Nothing is wasted. And here's the hard part for me. There's no guarantee you'll be around around to see the results to get the credit or to celebrate the outcome. There's a quote I love kind of hate the says it's amazing. What you can accomplish rush you do not care who gets the credit and get this? I tried to find out who said that quote an irony of ironies it's unclear Ronald Reagan Harry Truman Grooming Ralph Waldo Emerson. Charles Edward Montagu in Bob would drift are all quoted as having said it or having said some version of it. Well that seems fitting working without guarantee of success is one thing but working without guarantee of even knowing how it will turn out one way or another that takes takes faith. I wonder how the world and our daily lives would be different. If we approach our tasks our relationships and our everyday work with a willingness willingness to in the words of the poet Henry New Bolt build for the years we shall not see. May We bring all. We're doing into the presence of Christ with an open open. Hand leaving outcomes and results in his care as we simply do our next rate thing in love.

Democrats raise stakes with impeachment vote
"After weeks of factfinding behind closed doors the house is gearing up to vote on the best way to present it's impeachment inquiry to the public in what will likely be act to the investigation into the president's alleged quid pro With Ukraine the gathering political storm comes amid a flurry of damning testimonies from top officials most recent leap new Tannin Colonel Alexander Finland the Ukraine expert on the National Security Council who listened in on the phone call between President trump and you can Ukrainian presidents and landscape and said the White House those omitted details of the calls in its transcript today to more diplomats take the stand Christopher Anderson and Catherine craft both were for trump's former envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker who helped the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani contact Ukrainian officials close to President's landscape now former Defense Secretary William Cohen is being closely watching these hearings member of the Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings he was one of the handful of Republicans who actually voted for President Nixon's impeachment and now he's calling for politicians on both sides of the aisle to put country before party they the current evidence and he's joining me now from Washington Secretary Cone Welcome to the program good to be with you so I ask you first and I do you think the house and the Senate are in fact going to or have they showed any evidence that they're putting country before politics I think some of them are I believe the the Democrats who are now leading in the house are trying to get at all of the facts is best they can I think they've gone about it the right way and that is to have private hearings or secret hearings in order make sure nothing is classified comes out an open testimony that's what happened during the Watergate era where the Watergate Committee had private hearings before they went public and as a result of those public hearings it certainly educated the American people in terms of what was at stake and then it came over to the House of Representatives we conducted almost all of our hearings in private and only went public when we started to debate the articles of impeachment so this kind of a hybrid here because there was no Senate Watergate Committee investigating a Watergate type committee investigating the president trump and his actions and so it's a hybrid now where the House has been required to go and dig out some of the facts before they go public and then they'll go public I assume within the next two weeks so it's very interesting who are really hammering this this fact that they have been doing their job behind closed doors because they needed to get all the relevant facts before they could go public I mean I assume you're saying that to answer the chorus of criticism from the Republicans and from members of president trump's as that this is somehow as he says it a kangaroo process with everything happening in a non-transparent way well much else what is being said its faults number one Republicans have been in the hearings behind closed doors and the spectacle that we saw last week with I'm forty or fifty Republicans storming the intelligence committee room was just that it was a spectacle because many of those who were storming the who was actually had seats on the inside and could have sat there if they hadn't at any time during the course of all of these hearings so I think it was more for a show that had little to do with the facts and the facts were being gathered by Republicans behind closed doors as well as the Democratic majority and so now will go public and I think it's really important it's not enough to have Robert Muller just read from his testimony what he had gathered as his his finding Wchs it's really important that those who have key information go before the American people be subjected to a critical examination in cross examination so the American public can understand what's at stake and what's at stake is the rule of law and whether or not the president has breached that rule whether or not he has engaged in conduct which in my opinion on its face is impeachable namely to call upon a foreign government a to dig up critical information or dirt on a potential of campaign competitor in the following in next year's race yeah I think that is something which on the face of it would be an impeachable offense I'm let me ask you you mentioned the rule of law that's obviously the fundamental principle of one of the main principles the United States and the democracy that are you concerned that the rule of law itself is under threat and are you concerned that the from the consistent attack on institutions in the United States is having an impact on the democratic process I am during the time of Harry Truman Indianapolis and others it was called you know watching the president that the beginning I think we're present at the end of that process they were present at the beginning of setting up these institutions in the United States and elsewhere which helped to maintain for the most part peace and stability for the past seven years I believe the president trump is in the process of knocking down those pillars and so he feels that he doesn't need any of these other institutional guards such to make that he feels that he alone own can take action without regard to any of the other institutions which are there to make sure that the rule of law stays intact and so that only I can do that assume that has the sound of a dictator or dictatorship where only I can solve this problem I don't need you for consultation I know more than the generals I know more than the ambassadors and I alone can take this action without regard to you congress I don't need you know have to come you and therefore it becomes one man rule now if the president can do that in his first term what we would we expect if he has second term and which has no need to go before the electorate again there's no need to go to Congress to say I'm sorry I broke this rule they'll be no rules that will go on broken in my opinion because he feels that he is above the law that he is the face of the law that he is the face of the Justice Department et Cetera. So I worry about the future as much as I worry about the present in terms of what is happening I want the president to abide by the rule of law and I want Republicans to say Mr President when you step over this line you have to be held accountable you cannot go to a foreign government and ask for assistance against dirt on your future opponent that crosses the line which should not be crossed now whether the majority in the Senate supermajority in the Senate two thirds of the Senate will vote for removal I think at this point is rather doubtful but in any event even if doubtful it is important for the American people to listen to the facts to say you may think it's okay for this president but do you want to set the standard and lower the standards for every other president in the future because what is good for president trump will be good for them and I've always believed I want to look up to the president I want to see the president as a shining example of what the rule of law supposed to look like in America and why we treasure that rule of law because if you don't have the rule of law you have the law of rules and that's something the president seems really more akin to he likes President Putin he likes Kim Jong Hoon he likes presentation paying he likes spreading the Erawan he doesn't much like our allies in terms of paying the same kind of tribute to them that he does to those who the kind of one man rule I mean you've just laid out a pretty alarming scenario I mean if I had to sum it up you pretty much saying that potential elite the United States is is on route to anti democracy I mean almost tyranny you've just said and from from somebody like yourself who's a pretty moderate Republican who served a Democratic president you're not a flame thrower it's pretty alarming I wonder whether former colleagues or current members of Congress whether the House or the Senate listening and you of course signed a letter with with forty four other four most Republicans and others about this issue and yet the Boston Globe has said where are you all where are you all where all the Republican senators or Congress people who who actually did what they had to do according to the rule of law during the Watergate era Where are you all apart from US speaking out like this well many of the Republican Senators with whom I served L. exactly as I do they are worried about where the country is heading I would ask everyone to go back and read Orwell's nineteen eighty-four and look what he was writing about a fictional sense and saying is that where we're headed where you have a Ministry of truth in which you can tell the biggest is and you repeat them over and over again until they're accepted as the truth so you have a situation where the words like a war really means peace or ignorance really means wisdom or slavery is equal to freedom and two plus two week was five when you that's pretty fictional but it's not too for removed when you can have the president of the United States I yeah I wrote this letter and it's a perfect letter and I would say perfectly corrupt in the sense that you're trying to dig up dirt through a country that has beholden to us for its security in order to get that security delivered to them but only if you give this information on Joe Biden and his family and so you keep repeating it's perfect it's perfect perfect and people soon we'll say yeah it is perfect so that's why it's important to have these public hearing so you can have a ambassador Bill Taylor about Yvonne show you can have a lieutenant colonel come forward and say here is what I heard this is why alarmed me and this is why every American and should be alarmed about this because this is not what we do this is not how we act we don't ask we don't ask Russia Russia if you're listening come on in so you can we're open for business that's not something that we can accept which should not accept into the extensive the American people feel it's okay then I think we're headed down they very dangerous past one that every American should be concerned about so let me ask you about the American people because clearly the idea of an impeachment is a very I soon traumatic one for the nation they've been through it once or twice before it's rabbit it's happened and it is traumatic and people I will also say as president trump's allies of said that it's simply an attempt to rob an elected leader of his position do you are you concerned given what we're seeing in polls right now that this could be even more divisive even more traumatic than than than the all of law being upheld well we had the same arguments he met made back during Watergate there were people in the street we had bomb threats at our hearings I had to get special protection for my family as well and the argument was this will tear the country apart and my argument at that point was no it won't tear the country apart there'll be a vice president who will take office of removing the head for head of state for actions that are antithetical to what we believe in will not result and tearing the country apart we'll we'll tear the country apart is if we watched the slow the unraveling of the rule of law in the name of the power of the president and when you confuse the office of the president with the Individual President and His undoing becomes our undoing I tried to make that very clear I believe it's still obtains The president is there a temporary occupant we have our allegiance to who is the office of the President and to the The constitution into the country and so I know the president trump was trying to get members of like Mr Komi the actress FBI? I want you to pledge loyalty to me yes there was no MR president. I don't pledge my loyalty to you I pledge my loyalty to the Constitution. that's something that has been going on now insisting upon loyalty to the person and it has to be loyalty to the office of the president why do you think then sorry to interrupt you but why think then so many Republicans are in fact not doing what you're saying in other words they are pledging their loyalty to him rather than do the pro the the

H. C. A. do not work out of the White House I'm very fortunate I do I work in the basement portion of the press area I work in a as you know Jarod a sound proof office the door sound proof so that I can hear anybody on the other side and they can't hear me when I do reports for fox news radio but some of the largest news organizations and most well known news organizations do have work space here is there any truth to the rumor that where the briefing room is now used to be a swimming pool it did in fact right below the briefing room is where that swimming pool is an was located so there's still a way to get down to that swimming pool and what's contained there now inside this swimming pool is all of the fiber wires that are needed to allow all of the networks to broadcast live whether you're talking about going live from the briefing room itself or going live from those shots that you may see on the television networks from the north lawn of the White House all of those fiber wires are located in what in what was once the White House indoor swimming pool now there's not an indoor swimming pool on on the campus there is not but there are other and entities that exist here at the White House that a president can take advantage of there's certainly if you want a fireplace they have plenty of them here they have twenty eight they have a hundred thirty two rooms the president has a swimming pool which is outside he's got a tennis court a single lane bowling alley a movie theater a jogging track in overall it's estimated that about thirty thousand visitors each week come and visit the White House on a public tour the the idea of having this press room which you say is very unique you don't hear your foreign colleagues talk about having that back home was that sort of a similar idea to the west wing like we got to find a place for these people to be because otherwise they're going to be like loitering in that it in the house well interestingly enough the individual who turned the White House indoor swimming pool in to where we we now work on a regular basis which is now known as the James S. Brady press briefing room was Richard Nixon Richard Nixon was the person who did that and I think a lot of credit goes to him for allowing that to take place of presidents over the years have toyed with the idea of moving the White House press corps essentially off campus a little bit maybe in one of the buildings that were nearby that is a part of the White House complex but I think cooler heads ultimately prevailed and I think there is the White House whoever the occupant of the White House is Jerd realizes the advantage of actually having the White House close by if the president wants to make a statement and president trump wants to sometimes make statements on a moment's notice all he needs to do is some in the press corps and within a moment's notice they can be in the oval office or the cabinet room or the Roosevelt room and record and and what it is that the president has to say on any particular subject it is interesting to think about that it wasn't that long ago that we could have just walked in and in made ourselves at home probably better that that were kept a little bit and harmful hello that's a good point all right John a very interesting chat appreciate we'll talk soon thanks a lot you're summer heat arrival on I'm not looking for the G. twenty the next debate crisis on the border travel cool stay informed at the top and thirty minutes past the hour what you want Somers to born stuff to me and what you need for news this summer with the radio one thousand Katie okay at which point.
How Has the Korean War Changed History?
"On June twenty-fifth nineteen fifty North Korean tanks rolled across the thirty eighth parallel the line that separated communist North Korea from US-backed South Korea, as a now, declassified US intelligence cable from Tokyo to Washington concluded, the incursion wasn't just a mere raid, quote the size of the North Korean forces employed, the depth of penetration the intensity of the attack and the landings made miles south of the parallel on the east coast indicated that the North Koreans are engaged in all out offensive to subjugate, South Korea. It was the start of a war that is still not ended a full seven decades later. The Korean war, which ultimately would pit the US against China in the first ever, confrontation between the two superpowers would claim the lives of an estimated two point five million military members and civilians including nearly thirty four thousand Americans the fighting would cease with an armistice on July twenty seventh nineteen fifty three but the Geneva conference of nineteen fifty four failed to produce a peace treaty in the north and south remained tense enemies, and that's the way things have pretty much continued, though in twenty eighteen North Korean dictator Kim Jong UN and South Korean president Mundi een announced that they would work together toward a peace treaty. But after the collapse of February summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong those tensions seemed likely to remain for a while longer. In the US the Korean war is sometimes called the forgotten war, because it's overshadowed by the conflicts that came before, and after it the stirring victory of World War Two, and the lengthy, painful ordeal of the Vietnam war. We spoke with Edward roads. A professor on the faculty of the shar school of policy and government at George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia, who's an expert in American foreign, and national security policy. He said modern Americans don't think about it much. Vietnam was more dramatic. And World War Two is more in victorious. Nevertheless, the overlooked conflict has exerted a powerful influence that still felt today according to roads, the war forever changed the course of US foreign, and national security policy. Compelling the US to accept a permanent military involvement around the globe, even in peacetime. It also helped drive, the creation of a vast US nuclear arsenal to deter possible, communist aggression with the threat of annihilation and a global nuclear arms race. Still continues all this happened, according to roads after career. A nation that had been occupied by the Japanese from nineteen ten to nineteen Forty-five was split into two by the US, and the USSR after World War Two, he explains, it was a practical matter. There were Japanese armies that had retreated into Korea from insurer, and they needed to be disarmed. We split that large task with the Soviet Union the understanding that the Soviets would design the Japanese in the north, and we would do it in the south, but as the Cold War developed between the US and its European allies and the Soviets, the temporary partition turned into a permanent one with the formation of a communist regime headed by Kim Il Sung in the north at an authoritarian pro American government headed by Sigmund, e in the south each regime sought self as the real government of Korea and its rival as illegitimate. Kim Il Sung decided to settle the matter by invading South Korea. And in may nineteen fifty finally obtained reluctant approval from his patron these stallion regime about a month later. Kim launched a surprise attack which initially had devastating result. What's the South Korean forces essentially dissolved the UN Security, Council taking advantage of a Soviet boycott of the body, then passed a measure, calling for member nations to assist the beleaguered South Koreans that mandate enabled US president Harry Truman to respond militarily without having to go to congress for a declaration of war. Up until that point, the US hadn't seen South Korea's having much strategic importance erode said, but when the North Korean tanks rolled across the border, the image that flashed in Truman's mind was that this was a repeat of what the Nazis did his responses to stand up thinking that if we had stood up to Hitler early on the world would have been a better place, an outnumbered contingent of UN forces formed, a desperate line of defense around the only part of South Korea, not yet, captured by the communists and managed to hold off the invaders for two months that gave General Douglas MacArthur, who had been placed in overall command of the UN forces enough time to make an audacious and fibia landing at Inchon near the South Korean capital of Seoul on September fifteenth. Nineteen fifty cutting off the over extended North Koreans MacArthur's forces chased the invaders back north across the thirty eighth parallel and by mid October had captured the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, but MacArthur overconfident kept pushing the North Koreans back to the Yellow River the border with China, China. Responded with a massive counterattack of between thirteen thousand and three hundred thousand troops. This time it was the UN forces who were driven back a bloody stalemate on the ground developed as the US pounded North Korea from the air MacArthur, eventually was relieved of his command by Truman and replaced with general Matthew Ridgway. The US abandoned the idea of total victory and shifted to a holding action against the communist forces road said MacArthur embraced the idea that there's no substitute for victory. You beat the enemy, and they surrender. But Rhodes explained after the Chinese intervention, quote, we're still in a situation where there's got to be a substitute for victory because how are we going to fight the manpower of China? There's a realization that we can't fight this war to victory and it's hard for the American people to accept. The longer. The war stretched on the more popular it became back in the US, many of the soldiers sent to Korea where reservists who had served in World War, Two roads, explained they've got homes and families and jobs, and then they were called up and sent to fight another war. There was a feeling that this wasn't fair. Eventually Truman successor president. Dwight Eisenhower ran on a promise that he would go to Korea and seek an end to the conflict and actually did that a month before his inauguration in nineteen Fifty-three. But though, Eisenhower had ended the fighting the Korean war still shaped his policies road said, Eisenhower looked at this as the wrong war at the wrong time using the wrong weapons, he reaches the conclusion that with the Cold War going on with the Soviets, we have to plan for the long haul. We're going to sustain this kind of military deterrence that led to resources being pumped into the development of a massive nuclear deterrent. The could be used to contain the Soviets. Additionally, Eisenhower began attempting to form licenses with more and more countries in an effort to create a unified front to hold off communist aggression. We also spoke via Email with Charles k Armstrong, the Korea foundation professor of Korean studies in the social sciences at Columbia University. He said, the US was forced to take China more. Seriously as a military power. After fighting twist del mate in the Korean war general MacArthur, had severely underestimated the Chinese military's willingness to confront the US and capacity to fight leading to a bad route for you, enforces, the initial months after China entered the war. China's participation in the Korean war. Also consolidated malls rule and asked the hopes of sub Americans. The communist regime could be rolled back and replaced by Changcai checks nationalists. Armstrong said mouse willingness to support the North Koreans directly as opposed to stallions reluctance helped solidify China North Korean relations, and caused the North Koreans to be more distrustful of the Russians for the US China was seen from the Korean war onward as the primary ally of North Korea. And the primary great power that was an enemy of the US in Korea. Armistice, ended the fighting but North Korea now backed by the Chinese remained as a belligerent enemy to South Korea, the ongoing threatment that US forces couldn't just withdrawn come home Armstrong, notes, the North Korean invasion in the emerging Cold War convinced American policymakers that the US needed a permanent military presence in Asia and Europe in order to contain communist aggression. Additionally, the Korean war helped set the table for another even bloodier, and more painful future conflict, according to Armstrong Korea led directly to the US decision to help the French against communist led insurgency in colonial Vietnam, and then after the French defeat to intervene in support of an anti communist regime in South Vietnam, which blocked an election called for by the nineteen fifty four Geneva conference that helps set the stage for the Vietnam war. Armstrong, said the most lasting legacy of the Korean war for the US was these stablishment of a global military presence over the long term and a commitment to confront communism throughout the world during the Cold War. And for Korea and East Asia ideological and military confrontation that has lasted seven decades that included a US force stationed in South Korea as a deterrent to North Korea, which in turn has a massive array of long range, artillery, and rockets equipped with chemical and biological weapons aimed at Seoul. That's in addition to the nuclear weapons and ballistic missile arsenal. The Trump so far has been unable to persuade the North Korean regime to give up.

They don't understand what's going on. Well, I, you know, there are young people. I call young people forty and thirty and you haven't in their twenties, and I engage with people all the time because they know me from radio, they know me for television. I mean, they approached me all the time. And they tell me how they feel about things. Right. But I can just tell you as someone who's been around been involved both in the media, and in politics, I have never witnessed what I am seeing. I mean, I could see in the future when I was younger, and I was democrat. And I saw how the party was changing and moving to the left, and I knew that it would never ever come back. And that's why I left it. But I say to people the greatest example, I can give to you is that Harry Truman reach your history books. Harry Truman or John.

The White House isn't ruling out another shutdown
"Who say the shutdown. She'd be taken off the tip. I'm not going to get into the hypotheticals of taking that off the table. Okay. So that's not down as is on the table. The president thinks the odds of no deal are are high higher than the odds of a deal. And it came on the day, we found out that it is costing nited states three billion dollars for the shutdown. That's according to the CBO and only twenty percent of Americans actually support shutting down the government again that is a bipartisan and overwhelmingly resounding statement people don't want it Kaitlan Collins out front of the White House tonight and Caitlyn that is the big question. The president dangling out there again. Right. Are we headed for another shutdown? Yeah. And that's really the question here. But what it's going to come down to Aaron his largely two things one. Whether or not those congressional negotiators can find a deal, not just finding a deal, but also one that could pass both chambers of congress and get the president's signature now as you noted in that Wall Street interview, Wall Street Journal interview, he expressed doubt that they could come to a deal, but the president isn't the only one who skeptical here because both sides have drawn these red lines not only the president saying he dealt take anything less. Than five point seven billion. But also with the house speaker Nancy Pelosi being on camera calling the wall and immorality now. The one bright spot that White House. Aides have looked at lately who's on this committee. That's trying to find a deal, and it's none of the hardliners mostly you see these appropriators here who are used to finding a compromise. And have said they would like to do. So for this. Now, if they don't Richard deal, and they don't reach one that either Nancy Pelosi lights or the president likes. Then the president has said that his top choice essentially here is to invoke a national emergency therefore bypassing congress to fund his border will. So that's the question here. One thing we did learn today. Erin is that the president will get the chance to make the argument for his border wall during that televised prime-time address during the state of the union, which is going to be one week after it was initially scheduled to happen. All right Caitlin. Thank you. Out front tonight democratic congressman Roque Khanna. He's a member of the house oversight committee. And I appreciate your time. Congressman look the president is putting the odds at less than fifty fifty that the bipartisan group of congressional negotiators will get a deal before there's another shutdown. So so he he has the odds for a shutdown where do you put them? Very discouraging. I think we can get a deal done. The Democrats are willing to fund border security. We're willing to fund smart border security, even give more than five point seven billion dollars. We would give ten billion dollars, but we're not going to get money for the fifteenth century idea for wall. And I think the president if he can move beyond his campaign promises could easily get a reasonable deal. So I in the interview of the Wall Street Journal, the president said he would not rule out another shutdown. Right. His quote, certainly an option. That's what he used to describe another shutdown. Now, look we we know from the most recent polls Americans overwhelmingly don't want that outcome. According to Monmouth, right? That is a bipartisan take from people in across the country. Do you believe the president will go ahead with another shutdown? Does he think that that's a real alternative? I don't for two reasons one. The polling showed that it was unpopular for him. But more importantly, his own economic advisor said that it was costing the country point one three percent of GDP every week. The president knows that he's nowhere. If this economy falls into recession or tanks. I just don't think he's going to take that kind of risk again. So when you talk about being willing to give something for border security, but not a wall at this is this is what it all comes down. To sometimes words are not just words. Sarah Sanders today was asked about it. She said that you all Democrats need to give something here. She is. They don't come back with the deal. That means Democrats get virtually nothing that will make the president and force him to have to take executive action. That does not give Democrats the things that they want. Will you vote for deal, congressman content? That includes some wall, I will not. And I think the president is miscalculating his odds on executive action. Let me Senator Rubio Senator blunt have said that they would not support the president in declaring a national emergency. And as you know, we could invoke section five of the national emergency act and the congress capacity joint resolution to overturn it. Now, it would require veto proof majority. But the question is whether Senator Rubio and blunt and others would stick to what they said they would do. Well, of course, Senator Graham has already said he supports a national emergency. I mean, I guess I guess the reality of it is are you willing to take one? Well, I would vote to overturn it. And I think it's clearly unconstitutional. I mean Harry Truman when he declared a national emergency to nationalize steel for the Korean war the court so that that was unconstitutional. So certainly this is not going to be a constitutional exercise of the president's power. But here's the point. We're all for reasonable border security in the president. If he just gets passed the wall, and if you'd thinks about what's commonsense can get a deal. I mean, people say well road, you have you have security in your own house. But I don't build a wall around my house. I have an alarm system, I represent Silicon Valley technology solutions that are effective. And my hope is the president will see that. Now, of course, the president points at communities, you know, whether it's a layer San Francisco anywhere across this country and says, well, they have walls to and in fact when he gave in here, right? No other word for it. Right. He caved and the government reopened, and he didn't get any money for his wall. At that time. He was slammed by his. Base for doing that. Here are a couple of people. He promised something for eighteen months. And he lied about it. She has just whipped the president of the United States. He just reversed himself. That's a victory for Nancy Pelosi. Okay. When he hears that from people that he cares deeply about. He cares. What they think about him. He cares that they reflect what he thinks his base wants, do you think that will make him dig in even more? He doesn't wanna look like a loser. Unfortunately, they're calling the shots. And this is the base that he thinks got him elected. But leadership is about convincing your base to do something that makes sense for the country. The president of everyone knows has a lot of loyalty from his base his poll numbers are through the roof still with that forty percent of the country that voted for him. I think if he turned to them and said, look, I'm going to getting border security. We're getting funding for smart border security, and it doesn't have to be about a fifteenth century. Well, I actually think the vast majority of his base would stay with him. So I think he is over relying on the end Coulter's and isn't doing what would. The vast majority of the country wants all right? Well, thank you very much. I appreciate your time tonight. Thank you for having me on and next is the president trying to bait.

No. It was lowered to seventy percent by JFK. It was ninety. You might be right. I've got a double check on that. It was it was more the point. I don't want to split hairs here. The point though, is that you had a different conception of wealth back then because we didn't see you have to understand. We didn't see the abject failure of such high marginal tax rates. We didn't see the failure of the Soviet Union. We didn't see the failure of its satellite states all across the globe, which basically collapsed under their own weight. So there was more of an appetite for that. Once we understood and embraced free-market capitalism. Particularly in the postwar period. When the economic engine was spurred, of course, by tens of millions of boys coming home and starting families, and all of that, we understood and even as you said JFK understood that tax cuts were the way to do it ever since. Then we have had unprecedented growth, which is why the modern American economy. Is typically thought of not after the boom years of the nineteen twenties and the subsequent economic crash, but in the postwar period because that's when we had a modern conception of taxation and the proper role of the federal government.

"And so now he's the judge in this county, and that's where he gets his start. And his whole beginning of his political career is basically a table set by. This guy Pendergast's. So when he finally runs for Senate gets, he wins against all odds. He gets to Washington and no one will shake his hand because they think he's just a stooge of this crumpling Pendergast which is true. In fact, eventually Pendergast's go to prison while Harry's a senators. Great. It's a great embarrassment for him and appears to be at that time the end of his career. What? What's interesting about him being elected county, judge ROY, basically county, judge that it was like a county Commissioner. They don't really do judge. It was like it was basically an executive position in the camera they had to decide who would who would be employed in ware county money would be sent l. what was interesting the way you described? He will, yes. He was elected by this democratic machine boss, but at the same time, he was kind of a student at the same time, you had the reputation of being of having integrity and making sure you know county money was spent wisely. I mean, how was able to do that both being like sort of a political pawn, but at the same time, developed a reputation as someone who who got stuff done, but did it also with integrity? Well, that's a great point. The boss Pendergast Tom Pendergast. Everybody knew everybody knew he controlled and fix elections, and one of the things Pendergast really liked about Harry. Truman was that Harry was a local boy. Everybody knew and the county in these in this rural county as being an honest little fellow, nobody thought Harry, nobody, you know, they thought he was little nor normal. There's nothing special about him, but he was a guy who could be trusted in so boss, Pendergast's, you know, he tried it out. Harry Truman said, look, dramatic. My boy, nobody can say anything bad about Harry. Truman and Truman wasn't fact fought against corruption in the county. And there was this one point in the nineteen thirties where he realizes very dramatic moment. He realizes where he's at what he's a part of the fact that you know, enter gases created his whole political career still just a little guy in this rural county and he he, he starts renting this hotel room in Kansas City. He sits up all night probably with a bottle of bourbon and he writes out this political philosophy and those documents exists you, you see him exploring who he is. What is right? What is wrong? What is a political philosophy? Where do I fit into this whole thing? And through reading those diary entries, essentially, you really get this wonderful window who isn't who he wants to become as county judge. Did he get stuff done like actually improve the lives of people who lived in Jackson county. Missouri. Absolutely. So basically, he one thing he did that was the most important thing that he did was he convinced the county to issue on was six million dollars, which at the time was a tremendous amount of money for this rural county to build rose and some eighteen twenties, and Harry says, listen, you know, we have all these cars now, but you have to look ten years from now. We're gonna have five times this number of cars, so we should have paved roads that go within two half miles of every farm in this county, and people thought he was crazy, but he won. He warned the public over to issuing this bond, and everybody thought that six million dollars raised by the county was gonna go to crooks and Harry Truman such that it did not it roads were built. That's really how he earned his reputation. And as I write the book of those roads, you know, those roaches created his career. Any follow them all the way to Washington, DC. All right. So he gets elected US Senate in. I mean, even though it was the. Boss helped him get there..

"Maim welcome to the show. It's great to be here. Thank you for having me. So you got a new presidential biography out about my hairy. Truman called the accidental president. Harry Truman in the four months that changed the world before we get into Truman and his wise, the accidental president was the impetus behind this book as a time period that you've been writing about and then sort of naturally fell into talking about a writing about Truman. Yeah, that's actually right. I let me just say actually studied by earthy and graduate school, which makes me kind of rare specimen, especially guy who studied writing. Biography actually writes biography his for this is an interesting book because it's sort of a portrait of a guy, but it's really just fourteen at four months of his life. It's the first four months of his accidental presidency, which is basically the war to presidency of Harry. Truman. My previous book is called the arsenal democracy, and there's this chapter in there where this unknown Senator nineteen three is investigating Detroit car companies. Wondering why these car companies are not producing military criminal fast as they said they would, and it struck me as a mazing that this guy who was so obscure nineteen forty-three. Very few people really understood who was should become the most powerful man in the history of the world just two years later. And that's what the books of what happens after that suddenly becomes most powerful man in the history of the world. What is he do next? All right. So we're gonna talk about. We're gonna get to help. Truman became president by accident in like his whole political career as we'll see, like is a complete accident pretty much. But before we get there, let's talk about, you know, his political education, like what allowed him to get to that point where he was kind of thrust into the world stage in this position of supreme power in do. Okay. As we'll say as we'll see here. So I like Truman. What was his child childhood and teenage years? Like was e drew up in a form? What was what was that like? Well, what are the things? Let me just begin like this people were amazed when he. Became president that this was a guy who had never gone to college, never have the money to own his own home. Following in Franklin, Roosevelt footsteps and people are stunned who is this obscure man, and one of the things that was so interesting about it was his upbringing. You know, he came from rural Missouri. He was raised on a farm. He was a failed businessman. He was pretty much a failure. Everything he'd ever tried was a haberdasher. You had a clothing store and that failed. And the only thing that really been successful at what was as a soldier. He was a captain were one, and he led troops into battle successfully. And the only thing only other tools he had were the teachings of his mother's mother instilled in him is rarely basic rural principles. You know, sort of the fabric of human being always tell the truth. Honesty is the best policy do the right thing. Those were the tools at no conjugation, but it did have these principles. Now, the other thing you had was as a kid, he'd been ill a little bit as a kid, and he was a veracious. Reader and he had read the entire independence libraries. He didn't have a great education the way you know Roosevelt, but he had this extrordinary knowledge of American history in American leadership yet speaking about his mom when he became president, I loved her vice to them says she said, be good, Harry, but be game. I just, I love that. I just it's so it it is what you need to do in order to be a president or politician. You gotta be good, but you oughta be kinda savvy to that was one of my favorite moments. Writing. This book is actually typing out that line because I remember when I found during my research. Like. And it's really this dramatic moment where again, he becomes president by accident. It's the night of April twelfth, nineteen, forty, five, we'll get to. We'll get to the point of how he gets there. But when he finds out he has no knowledge of the atomic bomb.
