"Folks, This is the Eric Metaxas show. I just happen to be Rickman taxes. That's really a coincidence. But this is very intentionally a show and on this show. I interview other people. For example, in the past, I've interviewed Governor Mike Huckabee, I thought would be great to get him back. We know he's very, very busy, but I called in some favors. And son of a gun hearing is Governor Mike Huckabee governor welcomed the program. Well, thank you. I hope you like my hair. I went to a Nancy Pelosi Salon had a blowout and didn't wear a mask. And man, it looks great. Don't you think? Uh, tell me if you know something people are always criticizing her. But she said something that was Harry Truman Ask. I don't mean Harry Truman and Harry President Harry Truman, she said. Harry, look up, she said. The buck stops with the colorist, and I thought that is just that's gonna go. You know, That's an epitaph that is a powerful statement. The buck stops with the epitaph. Now, listen, we've we've got to stop joking. That's always difficult because we're a couple of jokesters. But you have written a book Steve Diesel, and I thought, What about getting him on the program? It's a crazy idea sometimes, and I thought Maybe we could get him and it turns out we were also able to get Steve Diesel Stevie's will welcome to this program. Thank you, by the way here. Well, look, the book that the two of you written together I always say this. Unfortunately, it's very important. Wouldn't it be wonderful if it weren't important to have to underscore the basics? The title of your book is the three C's. That made America great Christianity capitalism. And the Constitution. My goodness. How crazy that we need to underscore this, But we do and by the grace of God, the two of you have have put it. Into a book. So let me ask you first, You're obviously where that we're living in historic times, and that we haven't been stressing these things with the younger Generation. It doesn't feel funny that at this point in our lives that we would need toe just dress such basics. Yes, because they didn't have distress. And when I was in high school what they were And when I look at these, these three sees their bounds Foundational Stone of our republic. And if we lose them, and if we lose our foundation and we end up losing public, and so That's why when I saw these things, this racer Tom, I said Best person I could ever get to team up with me on. This is Governor Huckabee. So you put a couple of ex pastors together. That's got some political love and insight for this country, and it turned out to be a pretty good situation. You're a lot of people. They were preaching to the choir. Well as you're just mentioning some of our choir is singing off key. 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.

"Into place. This tax incentive clearly played a major role in strengthening employer based insurance, but it wasn't solely responsible for the country moving in this direction it was the force of the AMA. It was the power of the labor unions and it was more than that. Embracing private insurance was in line with a larger cultural shift that was taking place. One that was led by the Republican Party in an effort to woo wins back in post FDR world the can't fight against the economy. It's the best economy in the history of America and the best economy in the world by far. And they can't fight against social security. It's too popular. So they create this idea which kind of sticks in the nineteen fifties that Americans are the people of the private sector. Long as we keep the foundation of our business system's strong. We shall be able to maintain and improve the way of life our forefathers conceived and established. A of life which gave everyone who came to this country the chance to progress according to his ability and enterprise is zero White Numale in the nineteen fifties it sounds right. I'll provide for my own family and on this foundation of freedoms continue to build a better life for themselves. And their fellow man. In the world of tomorrow. If you're African American perhaps a hero coming back from World War Two that story with sound stupid. Like ally crazy. Yes. It would so notice that when people repeat this familiar story. appeared in the great white. Male. Story in. The nineteen. Fifties. Whether you bought into it or not. The message was clear. The pathway to success was through the private sector. Private sector powered by jobs jobs that were not only the pathway to your salary but to your health insurance. And Eisenhower's health plan made sure that jobs were the primary way you received insurance. Well certain jobs good jobs not at the low end of the labor force. Okay. Not for. Agricultural workers not for. Restaurants and service industry they they didn't get the benefit of this. Elderly retired people were also left out. Enter JFK. He's elected president in one, thousand, nine, hundred sixty, and then his father has a stroke and he can't believe it. was in a speech not long after Kennedy have joking that it was a good thing. His father was Richard in the president so he could afford his healthcare. and. That joke touched on something deeper. A question that haunted him, what to ordinary people do? and Medicare went from I don't really care about this. It's too complicated at standard to an obsession with John F. Kennedy he just had to have it well, he gets assassinated before he gets anywhere and Lyndon Johnson picks it up. Johnson wants to pass everything that was on Kennedy's play and in March of Nineteen, sixty, five Medicare passed. And he says, I'm flying out to independence Missouri. So I can sign this with Harry Truman there. and. Status? No, no, no no. No. I get the whole socialized medicine thing going all over again. And he's I don't care. The Harry S Truman Library at independence. Missouri is a scene of an historic event president and Mrs Johnson and Vice President. Humphrey arrive or ceremonies will make the Medicare bill apart of social security coverage and there's Johnson, and as he signs, he's got his pen in his hand and he turns the truth and he says only you can understand. My feelings as I signed this bill. Medicare will become law on July first nineteen, sixty six and for Mr Truman and historic souvenir from the. Hands Truman Medicare card number one. Mr Truman the passage of Medicare is a dream come. True. Receiving Medicare card number one may have been a dream come true for Truman but it wasn't his dream come true now his full one anyway. This wasn't a historic signing of a unified universal program. This was piecemeal just another piece of the puzzle that were left with today. This is what happens when things unfold in sequence and you the failure to enact health insurance earlier led to the development of private employer based insurance and private employer based insurance reforms to focus on the people who were not being covered by employers. So we have Medicare Medicaid, and we have the children's health insurance plan and we kept we kept trying to fill in all the gaps. But. Then it turns out don't even with all these efforts to fill in the gaps. There's still millions of people who fall into the void. And don't have any protection, and because it's this one huge puzzle that everyone is trying to fit into. Naturally it's puzzling. And Paul Star says the only thing worse than the confusion is the cost. The United States has by far the most expensive healthcare system in the world. So I I think I think if we had gone down a different path if we had enacted system and national? Health? Insurance. We would be spending quite a bit less on healthcare than we do today, we've built a whole set of institutions that doesn't want this to happen. Not, only private health insurance. You know hospitals that get very high payments from private health insurance. They are not eager to have that go away specialists. They don't want this to go away. So we've we've sort of entrenched a bunch of interest who are opposed to this. I think it could have turned out differently didn't have to be the way it is There were these moments in the past There were inflection points that we're turning points where could have gone a Different away that is the is the basic structure of the past this set of paths taken and pants not taken. We kind of wound up where we did because at various moments, we came close to where other countries wound up, but just didn't make it over the threshold. So although I might wish you know that there could be some sudden measure that would totally transformed things. I don't expect that. What we've actually seen historically is that every time.
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

"Does not hard good to see the green fields. This nation wants more. They are a wonderful size. So Harry Truman succeeded Franklin Roosevelt on Brazil Steph.

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

"So everybody's out on the campaign trail today. The president has just arrived in Minneapolis. He's going up to Duluth. I thought But I saw where he was. Miss Red. I thought he was going to Duluth. Anyway. He's in Minnesota. He's gonna have a rally there tonight, and, ah, Joe Biden is on the train. He likes trains. And so he's taking a think it's like six or nine stops that he is making in Ohio and Pennsylvania. So it's um A throwback back, Tio. I've seen photos Harry Truman used to do that, apparently, well.

Thank you for taking my call. Well, I heard you make a statement about where you know you're wondering about what Americans think about debate and what we're going to do, and I just have to say that I want to see someone who's going to deliver. And I believe that Trump has delivered and he's been given a whole load of like problems throughout the whole term, and it's just, you know, it just seems to me that Joe Biden seems to do a lot of lip service. And we, the Americans. My constituents were tired of it, and we're happy with the job that Trump was doing. He's not perfect. Nobody is. I mean, you're dealing with the COBOL. Then you're dealing with Jesuit. So pick your pain, whichever one you want, But I do believe in the red, white and blue and I do not believe that the Democrats Care about our country's Muchas as the Patriots deal. My That's my thought. Really, You think think the dead the two parties? One party cares about America and the other one doesn't It's not okay, so I can't generalize everybody like that, because that's definitely not fair. But when you see stuff like drag Queen story time, and you know sex offenders able to use a woman's bathroom because that day they decided to claim that they're a woman. I mean, it's just so many far, far left things that I don't believe what In anymore, and a lot of people don't want it crammed down our throats like I don't and it feels like it kind of was getting pushed. Yeah, you know, And so it's like I want to go to work. I want to pay my taxes. I want to do the right thing I want in my life, and it just feels like honestly calm. It feels like the news media is carrying this country apart. Between the red and blue and together We're stronger, correct me if I'm wrong, But why would the meeting Why would the meat in today's world the meaty I could see you saying that. 40 years ago when you had a choice of Walter Cronkite or Huntley Brinkley, But now you got the mayor. You got the media at your fingertips. You can you can pick and choose whatever I want to Okay. Okay. Let's back that at 5%, though, Because now you know, the major media corporations are owned by the same people who happen to be the same people which I believe, and you could call it conspiracy when wait. Wait a minute. No, no, no. The same people own all the media. Oh, yeah. All the cooling rate. They're all owned by the okay, Let's let's let's let's go through who owns who owns The New York Times? Okay. I don't have names. So please forget it. I'm not good. I'll help you like stockholders who owns who owns Who owns Who won't CBS? It's Viacom CBS owned by stockholders. NBC is owned by Comcast, which is owned by stockholders. Fox is about the on ly one that an individual owns and that's Rupert Murdoch. But I mean, there's there's no. There's no one powerful single owner of the media. I just got to correct you on that. But please, If you watch the news, you will see that they are constantly bashing our president. And there constantly making who I think. Okay. Good died. So there So here's the deal. So you have a choice. Which of you don't then don't but you've got the Internet Watch. True. I watched through news media now and we're starting to find out. Tom people are out there. They're finding out the truth and they're getting it out there. And that's the one thing about technology. That's been which Which one do you watch? I'm sorry. Which one? Do you watch? Oh, they're so Oh, there's many. Okay. So you mentioned one earlier. What was the guy's name on? Oh, God. There's so many. Honey, I have a bunch of liberal hide. Mine Has he's got good. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, M J, not not The liberal ones. You said you you watch you watch the fur The truth, Woody Watch What liberal, hide mind there. He's a news channel on YouTube. And he actually put the news together. And he does it a little bit in a biased way. But you know, I I'm on his side. So when I hear what he says I kind of get a chuckle and I go. It's nice out about those ballots. How about what is what is this person's? What's this? What's this person's name? What's his name? Sorry, Mr Liberal. Hide, mind you. It's okay on on YouTube. He's under liberal hive mind. And he's awesome. He's funny. He's hilarious. And there's Tim pool. He's another one. He gets you good stuff, but I mean, now, mind you. I am a little bit more on the right. I used to be a Democrat. Believe it or not, but my party left me. So now I'm more you know, more centrist, more in the middle, but if we're forced to pick sides, I'm going with Trump all the way..
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?

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. Kennedy could not get the nomination for the democratic presidential campaign. They couldn't get the nomination. I will say this. I will go farther even Bill Clinton. One thousand nine hundred ninety two when he had his position on agendas and things like that. He would not today be able to get the nomination. So what are we going to do?

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.

You know, I I've been saying for a number of years that that Harry Truman once once the best presidents Israel because. He's a good emotional every time he would meet someone from the first world leader, recognize the state of Israel. But since in these two years of President Trump he has surpassed tremendous surpassed every president in terms of strengthening those ties with Israel. And I want to emphasize here that those ties with Israel are important for the United States, not just for for the intelligence gathering that Israel does in the Middle East, and and not just because of the commonality values. But also because I really believe, and I believe what it says Biblically that dreams blessings to the United States to be slowly connected with Israel, and to work with Israel and history has proven that that the United States being a country that welcomed in the Jewish emigrants the Jewish legal immigrants. Someone emphasize and. And who came to Israel came excuse me to the United States based on a merit based system. They came here to work they came to the United States to work hard, and and to become loyal Americans. You know, you you I believe you know, this skill I moved to Israel twenty six years ago.

I like my grandparents came to America because they just want it to be loyal Americans wanted to work hard.

You don't know what rebuild means, but I the rats the rats. There's Christmas nineteen forty one. It's the most famous Christmas at the White House ever. The war is underway. Pearl Harbor is still smoking Winston Churchill travels on a battleship to meet with his idol FDR at the White House. They spend weeks they're reorganizing the world for the war against Hitler. And Joe all this time. I did not know to your book, Robert the rats are running through the walls. They. They they were the residents of the White House who were aware of the fact that the building was falling and they were the last people on the ship when MRs Truman market Sherman hears about the rats. They move into the White House suddenly in the afternoon of FDR's death day. She gulp does she ordered the place rent a Amelie. Cleaned out. What do they do? They move in with the rats. They moved in with the rats because they really had little choice and the White House's efforts to a radical the rats has a very very long and proud history and also an unsuccessful one. Apparently, I had found a procreation in the FDR papers that included a secret rat eradication program that was snuck into the budget wonderful, and it the rat problem was bad enough that before the Truman's moved in Eleanor Roosevelt after she had packed her things up from the White House was about to move up to Hyde Park stopped across the street at the Blair House to pay a visit at the on the Truman women to wish them. Well. And also to warn them that the house that they were moving into was already full of rats, and that one of them had appeared at a recent dinner party, and well, let's just say caused a bit of a fuss Harry Truman says alright what needs to be done. We've talked about the compressive ground. We're going to gather the resources now and name the wiring diagram of the men who were thrown in to rescue the White House. This is a front page story at this point because they're aware of the fact that they've got to save the ship. It's not the facts aren't published because they haven't done all the discovery we organized the commission the commission on the renovation of the executive mansion this goes through several debates in the house of representatives, and the Senate is to how much money they start low ball, of course, million three million one million, but they organized the commission on with two congressmen to delegates right away. Douglas, Orrin, Richard Daugherty. Those are the men who had originally done the investigation of how the how bad the White House was and they were paid fifty dollars a day to work for Sam. But they choose to members of the house of two members of the Senate Edward Martin from Pennsylvania and Ken MC mckellar from from Tennessee. They don't seem to be troubled at all. They take it on a roll do. They were they've pretty much walked in lockstep and were behind the the appropriation required, which at that point stood at five point four million dollars, which at that time was an enormous amount of money, or at least in the minds of many people to be spending on home improvement. The larger problem came on on the with with with two of the other members robot fr from Detroit and Clarence cannon both those men wanted. Well, they had a vision, and I would have gone along with them at this point. I would have voted. Yeah. Territory. Let's start a gap cannon was cannon was an on the commission, but he was the guy who had led the public charge. He was head of the house appropriations committee. And now they hire experts to help them Williams atoms della. No, he's important. He's the man who's going to assess how bad it is. And Delo pretty much tells them the truth. Delano is key because he had been he was the only person involved in this job apart from Lorenzo Winslow, the the actual White House architect at the time who had worked on the White House before he had added the balcony for Truman and was intimately familiar with the White House. He was also an ardent Preservationists and della. No was the one that threw the weight of his considerable reputation against the idea that the house could simply be knocked down, and it wouldn't make a difference. So even the William Adams Delano is not a household. Name. We owe the man a great deal of thanks for for being the roadblock that he was also in earnest Howard who built bridges and Mississippi and Amiel Prager who built the important piece the floating ship dock that came that was attached to Normandy before the great storm that destroyed it in later June. Now, that's the commission and its advisors. They meet thirty or thirty two times over several years. This is still nineteen forty-eight going into nineteen forty nine. But we need to introduce one more name Major General Glen Edgerton. This is like a cameo from a movie, you can see. Given central casting couldn't come up with somebody is good as general Eggerton. He was a swashbuckling a member of the army corps. His achievements are amazing. He had blasted his way through to through Panama looking for a route for the canal. He laid highway through Alaska chased Pancho villa through Mexico. The guy was just absolutely a famous wonderful, dashing swarthy, man. And and a and a very gifted engineer who graduated top of his class at West Point. And also tutored he kept the upper classmen from beating them up by tutoring. The duller ones and one of his students was guy by the name of George Patton, and how small is this planet. He's in Iraq at this time redirecting the Tigers. The call goes out, we need you immediately. All charter jet apparently dropped both the Tigers and the Euphrates and came back to DC. He saw the opportunity obviously to undertake a job that would be the capstone of his career. And in fact, it was it was now we've assembled the cast Harry Truman is part of this cast because he has loud opinions. He wanted done. He wants it done properly a detail. We've got to find a foundation we can't build on sand. And one of the early investigations finds gravel twenty feet down. What does that tell them Robert? Well, basically there were several ideas set forth as to how they could stabilize the house and keep it from sinking. And the easier solutions were in doubt as to how long they would last. So ultimately what they did was contact a Columbia professor by the name of Donald Burmester who conducted soil studies and determined. That twenty two feet below where the houses footing stood was a layer of gravel. And if they could get the foundations down to that level. It would be strong enough to support the entire house. And so the job became how to dig down that far while keeping the house, of course, exactly where it was. So what they essentially had to do was balanced the house in the air while they dug beneath it the use of the term house. I'm beginning to think you miss because. Now going to have a house if I do I recount this correctly, the outer walls load bearing were not much load-bearing anymore. They were depending on the inner walls, the brick walls, and they were crumbling. They were cracked in instances. Yes. The the way that HOGAN had originally designed the house was with very very thick outer walls. They were four feet thick and they went down several feet below the ground and they had spread footings. So they were very very strong and those walls were designed to carry most of the houses weight including the slate roof, but.

He moved up through the political organization of Bernard Dickman who is the democratic mayor of St Louis in the nineteen thirties eventually became a very influential figure in Saint Louis politics, especially strong in the twenty first ward of the city as a top aide to Dr Dickman, and that was kind of the basis of his of his political background was as part of what semi call democratic political machine in Saint Louis, and he was a loyal member of that machine. Yeah. And it was it was the nineteen forty election. Reelection of Harry Truman to the US Senate where Truman Kansas City product. He was a product of the Pendergast political machine in the Pendergast machine had just been taken down and Truman to win reelection. He couldn't count on necessarily those Kansas City votes. He needed some help in Saint Louis and Bob Hannigan provided. Yes, he did Hannigan was. Initially supporting trimmings opponent in the democratic primary for Senate nineteen forty Lloyd start the governor of Missouri. And at the last moment last few days of the campaign Hannigan switched sides, and he was persuaded to do so by Truman supporters in particularly Senator Bennett Clark of of Missouri. And also with the expectation I think the Truman would help him in the future which turned out to be the case in Hannigan helped worked very hard in the last days of the campaign primary campaign to deliver the votes to Truman which put him over the top. And they're very close race there over six hundred fifty thousand votes cast in the democratic primary for US Senate, Missouri in nineteen forty and Truman won by about eight thousand votes, and that was basically his margin of victory in Saint Louis. So Saint Louis got to put him over the top. And if it hadn't been for proven winning the primary and then winning election reelection to the Senate nineteen. Forty very unlikely ever would have become president since Hannigan was an import parcel. Bob Hannigan was rewarded by Harry Truman? He was. He went to Roosevelt. He gave him a prominent spot in the government. Tell us what he gave him. Additionally, nineteen forty two thanks to Mr. Truman's efforts Hannigan was made collector of internal revenue for the eastern district of zuri which included Saint Louis us a very good administrator and the nineteen forty three he became Commissioner of internal revenue and in forty four he moved up to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee. And he was at this point of a man still in his thirties. He was born in the nineteen hundred nineteen o six still young Russia-Nato three. I'm sorry. It's still a young man burly over forty. So he moved up very quickly became chairman of the DNC nineteen forty four which of course, is a presidential election year. Yeah. And so he wanted a young man becomes the national chairman of the Democratic National Committee a powerful position. He played an interesting role in making sure as Franklin Roosevelt. No knew he was dying. And he was looking for that vice president that would be a successor. He played an interesting role in making sure Harry Truman got pick. Well, yes, yes. He did. And one of the things that Hannigan did was he convened a group of party bosses in nineteen forty four who persuaded president Roosevelt that Henry Wallace the incumbent vice president should be replaced on the ticket in forty four. The party leaders didn't trust Henry Wallace. They thought he was too far to the left politically too sympathetic to the Soviet Union. Also, they knew very well that Roosevelt was in poor health. And they were frayed Wallace would become president. If Roosevelt died during a fourth term and they wanted to avoid that. And the party leaders persuaded Roosevelt to agree to a sept- their best candidate in their minds for the nomination for vice president, and that turned out to be Harry s Truman of Missouri and Roosevelt went along with this. He played a kind of of careful game with it. He didn't really tell Wallace that he was out of the running. So Wallace still was running for vice president. But with Hannigan help Truman was able to light up the the delegates and Sam I think could point out that didn't Hannigan produce a letter at some point during the convention that was signed by president Roosevelt that had a decisive impact on the on the choice. Yes. Indeed. He he certainly did. Did the letter was said that he would be happy to to accept Harry Truman as his as his nominee for for vice president. And I think it's a particularly important. What rainy just said which was the the ill health of Franklin Roosevelt during World War Two on the ladder year of World War Two in the forty four nomination was extremely important because the democratic powerbrokers realized that whoever was being nominated vice president that you're very very likely would become the next president United States, probably very shortly. The public was not aware of the extent of Franklin Roosevelt's health problems. But men like Robert Hannigan who worked very closely with Roosevelt were quite aware of his declining health. We are visiting with Dr Sam Rouget. He's the supervisory archivist the Harry Truman library and museum in Independence, Missouri and archivist Randy souls with us as well. You know, the Henry Wallace the dropping him from the ticket was something of a controversy within the Roosevelt family. Eleanor Roosevelt, very close to Henry Wallace and a strong supporter of him it probably caused a little bit of consternation, perhaps you think. Yeah. It may well have done. So, but I think Roosevelt was listening to the party bosses, and and he took their advice. I don't think he personally cared who he was running with because Roosevelt in the middle of the war and with health problems yet other things on his mind, but he was willing to accept their advice on that. And he. The letter that convention saying half hearted way that well if I were a delegate I would vote for Wallace for vice-president, but that really didn't seem to impress. Many people was a very halfhearted endorsement at best. He also led another candidate for the nomination Jimmy Byrnes of South Carolina was an important presidential adviser. Seek the nomination for vice president and burns. Came to the convention thinking Roosevelt's support that was the way FDR. And so here and again played such an important role in Harry Truman, essentially, the presidency. Time moves on. He leaves government comes back to Saint Louis. Tell us what he wound up doing here in Saint Louis was an owner of the Saint Louis cardinals. How about that? Ryan again was made postmaster general and forty five and it was a really good administrator stand the post office department, but he ran into health problems. He he'd been athlete and last guy, you think would have those problems, but he has part problems finally in forty seven I think he had to resign from the cabinet and really that was the end of his political career, but he went into business, and he had been a a semi professional baseball player. I think in Saint Louis, and he he bought part interested in the cardinals. That's incredible favorite things in the Hannigan papers, which we have at the library is eighteen portrait of the nineteen forty eight Saint Louis cardinals with red she'd east and Samuel and all those guys, and I'm sure he enjoyed owning the cardinals. I think he sold them his interest in like January forty nine for like the quibble a million dollars, which I don't know how much that would be today. A lot more years Sam Russia, Dr. Supervisory archivist at Harry Truman's library as well as Randy. So well, thanks so much for joining us guys. Very welcome. Thank you little piece of history about St Louis. Yeah. It's worth checking out, Google, Robert Hannigan. Learn a little bit more about him. But our next guest. I'll tell you what else.

"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. It's never been the mayor of the city..
