Did Trump Take the Wheel Like Cassidy Hutchinson Said?

"Hutchinson was an aide to former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, at prick, and she testified about Trump's actions to the special congressional committee investigating the rights. So Trump promised during his speech on January 6th to march to Capitol Hill with his supporters to protest Congress certifying the 2020 election results. That we all know. But when the president was told by a security detail that they would not take him to the capitol, he got upset. Apparently they were told, they told him they've got guns, and he said, I don't care that I hear the shoot me. Let's get to the capitol. So Hutchinson testified with a very straight face. And this is the kind of people, this is the kind of person the left just loves. The kind of person that comes out of the woodwork to make these crazy charges and the left thinks she's got no book to sell. She's not trying to get a job at MSNBC. She must be real. No, no, no. Hold your horses. So Hutchinson said that Trump told his security detail the president said something to the effect of on the effing president, take me up to Capitol Hill now. And then he lunged at the steering wheel, and that's the story or not all told her. She also said Trump used his free hand to lunge at his security detail. When mister owner actor or not to had recounted this story to me, he had motioned towards his clavicle. Hutchinson's testimony is offering new alleged details, obviously, about the president's actions on that day. As the Democrat led committee continues to try to paint Trump as an unhinged lunatic who poses a serious threat to American democracy, they're just scared shit, he's going to run again and really kick some tables over. She was not physically present for the events. He described, but based her testimony on hearsay, she got from a member of the Secret Service. I can't do that. Where is Johnny Depp's lawyer right now? Objection hearsay. Objection leading. We need Camille Vasquez. Well, listen, you PEEP on the left, hold your tongues and push back your victory party. Because I'm hearing now in the last few minutes that the Secret Service in question offered to testify under oath that the story about Trump trying to commandeer the assault commandeer that the assault and attempt to attempt to steer the beast never happened.

Doug Welcomes Pete Hegseth to the Podcast

"It's my privilege to have Pete hex who is a good friend of mine. I got to know him over the years, so when I was time in Congress, working with him at Fox. And watching him just grow to be a very strong forceful voice for just American values, our military. He and our most share that military just, I'm 20 years in the air force. He's been military in his and he's wrote about that a great deal. But today we're going to get into not only a sort of both our backgrounds a little bit coming up through classical education and what that actually means, but also the attacks that have been coming up. And he has a new number one bestseller out on The New York Times Best Seller list, the battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation. Pete, welcome to the Doug Collins podcast. Hey, congressman. Thanks for having me. I really appreciate it. We're glad. Before we get started into your book, sort of talk about, you know, how this evolved and you were talking offline about raising our kids and my kids are older years with younger. But you know, we both grew up in education and probably at the time we were going through it, didn't realize a lot of what you wrote about, but tell us about your background for those who might not be familiar with it. A 100% right. I mean, first of all, I consider myself a child of privilege because I had a mom and a dad and love me and a great community took me to church and taught me the basics. You know, that is the older you get, the more foundational you realize that is and you try to instill it in your kids, but I went to public school, played basketball played football, loved it. That's all I really cared about as a kid. It pretty much an apolitical household. I mean, they were conservative, but it wasn't, it wasn't something we talked about all the time. Yeah, went to college did ROTC went into the military, did a bunch of did a bunch, but a couple of deployments and got into vets work vets advocacy after coming home. And ultimately, that's where I ended up interacting a lot. The folks on Capitol Hill and realizing the challenges up there. And then stumbled my way into TV where I get a chance now to talk about the issues of the day with great folks like

Hillary Clinton's Own History of 'Resentment, Grievance, Anger'

"Now, this is sort of rich, considering Hillary Clinton has a pretty long history of being resentful and angry and full of grievance. Number 5. I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life. You know, I'm not sitting here, some little woman standing by my man like Tammy Wynette. I'm sitting here because I love him and I respect him and I honor what he's been through and what we've been through together. And you know, if that's not enough for people, then heck. Don't vote for him. Wait, by the way, did you hear the accent? This woman is phony as a $3 Bill. Phony. Why? I just love bail and I just love cooking fried chicken and working in the kitchen. And now she's like, stand by my man. I'm not gonna do that. Really, come on, Hillary. All right, cut number 11. The great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it. Is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. And we all remember what happened during the Benghazi hearings. With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. What happened to miss hill is accent.

Buckhead Residents Want to Secede From Atlanta

"The wealthy suburbs that are paying all of the tax base and they're the ones that are funding the police and the fire department, but they're the ones not getting the services. They're not getting the protection of the police department because the police officers are busy taking care of crime elsewhere in the city. And a group of folks in one of the suburbs in a place called Buckhead, which really is a beautiful area of super wealthy. You have Linux bowl, you have some incredibly wealthy shops and Neiman Marcus and those kinds of places. So it's very Tony section of Atlantic. Kind of like maybe and I know our folks in games will Georgia and the north, Georgia suburbs might be able to help us out here with this, but it's almost like the Beverly Hills of Atlanta. So you have a lot of wealthy people, a lot of celebrities, music stars, athletes, and they live in this area. And the folks of Buckhead are saying, you know what? We're done. We are done. We're done with the crime. It's unbelievable how many shootings there have been at Linux mall, which again is a high dollar high end mall. But you have all these people coming in from the city. They're taking the subway and they've got a subway stop right there at the ball, and they come up, they call all sorts of mayhem, start shooting people up and then they get back on the subway and they go back home. And now the people in Buckhead are saying, yo, we're done here. We want to secede from the state or from the city of Atlanta. And we've had the people involved in this campaign, the guy in charge is named Bill white. And their argument is that they need the right to be able to create their own police force and that they're concerned that the defund the police movement has really weakened the Atlanta police department. I mean, it makes

He is the president of the center for renewing America and former White House, OMB director. And he also is very close with Jeffrey Clark, who was raided last week by the Department of Justice, Russ, welcome to the Charlie kirchhoff. Thanks for having Charlie. Appreciate it. So Russ walk us through what happened last week with Jeff. Well, Jeff's house was rated in a pre dawn manner. The Department of Justice came to him over a dozen officials law enforcement officials, including those from fairfax county police department. They were there to raid his house to search it to take his electronics, they didn't let him change and let him get into a pair of jeans. They took him out and made him be in his pajamas for over a number of hours. A complete show of intimidation and for those of you who are following the news like you do, Charlie, you know that that coincided with the fact that he was going to be the focus of the January 6th hearings, the sham hearings going on on Capitol Hill. So on a very in the same week that all of the exposure was designed to show that he was at the forefront of a law enforcement investigation to show that this is the person that they were trying to demonize as part of these hearings. And of course, this is just follow on from Peter Navarro. It's follow on from Steve Bannon. Other GOP officials that we're trying to get a handle on and election investigation were the brunt of similar targeting last week. I know that the situation with Jeff better than the others. But this is the weaponization this is the criminalization of politics that we have not seen in this country. In quite some time, if

Mark Fleischman Plans to Die by Assisted Suicide

"I thought a lot about mock fleischman the other day because he's going to die soon. He's 80 years old. Actually he's going to die on July 13th. In Germany, but his wife of 27 years by his side. Some years after he stepped away from the insanity of owning nightclubs and restaurants, fleischmann understandably stepped away from the limelight that was the majority of his life. The last time I saw him was a little over two years ago. He invited me to a party that was throwing for the launch of his Studio 54 book. Is that some small joint in Beverly Hills? And the crowd was a mix of The Old Guard and the new. There was some New York City journalist dad too, namely my former nemesis at page 6, Richard Johnson. Fleischmann writing a book about Studio 54 was a good enough reason to get Johnson on a plane and out in LA to hang out. I said, the old man looks good. He said he sure does. Must been that good cocaine in the 80s and we both left. So smart fleshman came by and we posed for a picture. I wish I still have it somewhere. I got to find it. But he thanked both of us for helping keep the club and him and the column for years. It was a nice affair all in all, but I could tell this was one last gasp tomorrow. Like I said, I was closing in on 80. And so here we are. A couple three weeks away from July 13th. The day the music died from on fleischmann. And that's because several years ago, he became afflicted with a mysterious illness that would make him extremely dizzy at times. To his legs, sometimes flat out failing right beneath him. And over time, that illness could not be diagnosed by doctors and became worse and worse and more frightening by the day. As it is now Mark doesn't have any balance. He drops things and doesn't know where his body is in space. There was a time where a doctor is the very best doctor, by the way. Originally thought he had a form of Parkinson's, but it isn't that. Nobody knows what this is. He's suffering from. Once he heard that Mark knew what he had to do. One time he swallowed a bunch of Xanax, but doctors brought him back before he could overdose. When he was going to go buy a gun, his wife, Mimi, intercepted, and they had a long talk. Mark convinced her that he'd had a great life that he loves and now more than anything, but now what this mystery illness running his life, he said, it's time for me to say goodbye. Eventually, with his wife's support, they contacted a Swiss nonprofit group poll after multiple tests and psychiatric evaluations, it was obvious to see that Mark fleischman, a man who pumped so much life into New York City was now a candidate for assisted

Naomi Osaka Offends Swahili Speakers

"Naomi Osaka, the kind of player who is just a real big pain in the ass. I like to fire up cross court shot of her face, Naomi Osaka announced last week that she's partnered with LeBron James company Spring Hill to start a new media company. A media company from the girl who doesn't want to talk to the media. And you explain that to me? Naomi Osaka expressed the hope that it would produce TV shows and documentaries and branded content. Again, this is the fraud who doesn't like attention thrust on her. This is the woman who had to step away from competitive tennis for her mental health sake. She said, and then she went on to do a few magazine covers and went to the Met ball in New York City, dressed like a fucking peacock with feathers in her hair. Don't believe anything she says. Now get this, the name of a new venture, she called it Hannah kuma, what she said means flower bear in Japanese. Hold that, hold it because it didn't take long for the Japanese Haitian Osaka to discover, oh, that phrase has another meaning in Swahili in Swahili. I'm not even sure why we care about this Swahili content, but it's why Healy it translates to women with that of a giant. Let's not forget there are 200 million people who speak Swahili, which is the majority of East Africa. So dozens of losers on Twitter in Africa piled on her and they begged her, they urged Osaka to this reconsider that name. They called it offensive. Of course they did. Of course they did. Everybody's offended now by something.

"Truth teller extraordinary. Now the CEO of the Trump media group's truth social former chairman of the intelligence House committee, great friend of the show, Devin Nunes, welcome back. Great to be back with you. As always. So we've got you for two segments. We're going to talk about you got a hint. You want to tease us about what's coming around the corner with truth social in the next segment. I'm so grateful. I don't know what you guys did behind the curtain, but I'm gaining two or 3000 followers a day. Absolutely exploding. People need to follow you on truth social people need to get an account. But let's start with what's happening right now on Capitol Hill. It's a circus. Some of our callers have called it an inquisition, a star chamber. I got to ask you as a pro on Capitol Hill. Is this going to back fire in ways the Democrats do not expect? Well, I have some other names I could call it sea bass, but we won't do that since you're on the radio. I don't want you to, I don't want you to get bleeped out. Look, the Congress has never seen anything like this. It's never been done in history, where the minority party, the Republicans in this case, don't get the ability to put the people they want on the committee. So effectively, what you have, plain and simple, is you have judge, jury, prosecution, defense, all in one, along with the media who are just going along with this charade. So I think what's going to have to happen here, ultimately, is if the Republicans are successful in the fall, there's going to need to be a whole host of investigations, but especially around January 6th and what the government and the Biden administration and the Democrats in Congress, everything that they've been doing, even some Republicans are supposed to Republicans. I need to look at how their doctoring evidence, how they're manipulating people. And look, we still don't know. And I still say this, who's this ray of sky, that's all I want to

Desperate Dems Try to Reinvent the Reasons for Our Current Inflation

"Moment. I got to start first here with the I mean, it's unbelievable. They had an agenda, very clearly an agenda. They want the American people to know, not our fault. You know what we did what we had to do. And hey, at least we're better off than Latvia. They're going around the world and they're making all these comparisons and they just want to say, look, we're the prettiest girl at the dance. Despite the fact that we've got so much debt and we're now in an environment with so much of inflation, 8.6%, and now the fed is going to aggressively have to raise rates, raise rates, raise rates, which will cause a pullback. We're already in one. You heard me the other day. We are in a recession. Anyway, nobody wants to admit that certainly not the administration. They call it transition, as I told you yesterday, the R word is out, and this is the kind of rhetoric we got from our lawmakers, members of Congress on Capitol Hill, take a listen. Of course, during the crises that we had, we had to do certain things, you know, stimulus and other things to make sure that we kept our economy stable. Without doing those things, we would have been in trouble. So the things that we did, going through COVID, the stimulus, trying to make sure people kept their jobs or kept money coming in at the time was what we had to do, otherwise we would have been in worse shape or not have a strong economy because we have now compared to other countries. Is that not correct? Yes, I would say this way that our inflation is a consequence of very strong demand in part driven by supply by what Congress did to support activity in part driven, but also. But that helps stabilize our economy at that time, right? It did. And if we did not do those things, our economy may not be as strong as it is right now. That's right. That's correct. All right. So strong. You see, you see where this is going. He's going to get himself in trouble there, because the whole idea is we're going to lead you up to this. You have to say, not our fault, not our fault.

The Federal Reserve Blames 'Demand' for Inflation

"Gold matters right now, especially when you have a Federal Reserve that is blaming somehow, gosh, that darn American consumer and all their demand and all those supply chain crises for the problems we have now. Forget about their money printing. No, no, no. That has nothing to do with it, right? Here's Jerome Powell, speaking on Capitol Hill today. There are principally at work here. You couldn't get this kind of high inflation without strong demand and you certainly couldn't get it without the kind of supply issues that we've had. Both in the labor market reflected in high wages and then in the goods market reflected in what's happened with durable goods and cars in particular you look there, there's been this driven by semiconductor shortage. Thank you, chair, pal. Okay. So it's all that demand. Look, I get it. The demand is out there, right? We knew the demand was going to be out there. For goodness 6 people were staying home. You know, for like a year. And change. They were staying home. They weren't going anywhere, of course. They had money saved and money to spend. So you knew that demand was going to happen. Let's not kid ourselves. Inflation was never transitory. It was always starting to get baked in as I kept saying, over and over and over again. And what helped to get baked in, it helped that the Federal Reserve was artificially suppressing interest rates for so long and pumping all this money a $120 billion a month into our economy. That has consequences. So now, the chairman of the Federal Reserve is saying, well, you know, we're serious. We mean business. We are going to fight this and we're going to fight this by continuing to high grades. Well, what happens when that goes down? It means money gets sucked out of the economy. It means that you pay more for your mortgage. Already, mortgages are up over 5% right now. Biggest increase in many, many decades. Like overnight.

"Selling. But I do want to share an example of a propaganda network that is all Democrat all the time like CNN and what reporter Matt Egan said to CNN's Erica hill, just yesterday. But to John's point, there are some serious problems here. It's also important to remember that just because things poll well doesn't mean it's necessarily smart policy. What? Not always the same thing. Like John said, this does nothing to fix supply. It actually supports demand at a time when demand can't keep up with supply. Moody's economist, Mark Zane, he told me that he is concerned that this could be inflationary. And there's no guarantee that energy companies are going to pass along the entire savings here. And then there's the fact that this money funds the building of highways at a time when the construction of the building in the highways has gone up because of rising costs for building material and labor. So there's a lot of issues here and I think it does show why Obama in 2008 called it a gimmick. Uh oh, you're losing CNN, Biden.

I haven't talked to you about this but you did it before we did. And in that respect as well you're a leader because you showed us well wait a minute. This whole game is changing. everything around. Here is changing where jamal hill just did something. That was inadvertent a little stronger than she wanted. She didn't expect to be fired. She and realize they're not fire but she didn't to result in what it resulted in which is okay. That's it it's over for you at. He has been and then something else was birth from that but where along the path. And what advice do you have for us. Did you make mistakes with the freedom. So i think the biggest mistake that i made early on is i said yes more than said no and What you quickly realize is that while you do have to be multidimensional because that's just what the business is. It is it. the great thing is i'm having been. Espn prepares you for that in dan. You're extremely multiple multidimensional you've written car cast radio Your creatives alike. The nimba lists of that will suit you extraordinarily well however i think what happens. Is that It's a little bit like you're given ferrari and put on the auto and you have to even still manage your time and manage your expectations. And so i think yes way too often found myself extremely tired like i should be this tire. When i've just trying to be scared you had to be scared that it was all going to evaporate right like you have to be saying..

"Guys. Today Danny and I. Are Going to talk about his new book patriotic descent. It's coming out on September. Eighth. Sarah Danny. That's right. Update. I'm coming out on the H.. It is. It's an amazing book. It's an The. The the history and the examination of patriotism that I read about so far has been really empowering and eye-opening in in a few different ways before we start talking about it real quick. I wanted to real quickly share with you guys are email and social media channel links they're usually in the show notes. So if you ever WanNa, find him there there but I don't say it on the podcast very often. So I WANNA take thirty seconds and do that real quick Our email is fortress on a hill. At G.. Dot. com. And you can email any questions and thoughts. You have ideas for episodes anything like that. On twitter you can find us at for Sunny Hill same deal with with twitter and facebook at a fortress on a hill. So real simple. It's all fortress on a hill so. So Danny start talking about this book I like I said I I've really enjoying reading it. You know I always learn so much from your writing period but this this fit into a different. A different vantage for me something that I think we should talk about it some time, but we don't need to discuss today. is I've noticed more and more as we've done the podcast that you and I were in very different wars if you will we'll say. You know that the stories that you told me that missions that you've been sent on the amount of death that you saw both among your troops in among Innocent civilians during your time has been really I opening for me But I've started to to look at your writing in that way asking myself about the things that I didn't experience because. you know so much that the military is tied up in combat support, which means that if you're not a traumatic, cavs scout a tanker there are things that you just don't see. You know other just events, admissions and possibilities of war that you don't consider and so. Moving forward I hope that you and I get the chance to talk about that. At some time. But I'M GONNA turn it over to you for a minute we you tell the tell the folks what the book is about and how you got around to writing it. First thing I'm really glad you brought up is. This idea of different wars. There's a couple of things that I think are important about that. So Even, within the same unit as I've written about a bunch even in the first book of people will experience the same events differently. So there's that right there's the psychological aspect of the confusion of war various viewpoints in. Then you know there's the different kinds of jobs mostly gonNA, realize. You know the tooth to tail ratio in other words how many comments for comments, sports, soldiers, who for you know combat arms, right. So basically, foot soldier like how it's you know it's what is seven, eight, nine one and it changes over the years. So you know back in the day like in the civil war was like one one and then four to it's like three to one and then Vietnam and now it like really pushes up to like closer to ten to one. That does not mean those people aren't in combat. At one point I mean it. Like in World War Two more. But now with an insurgency and attacks on the roads and ID's you know there was a point I remember that you may know some of this that Henry where early in the insurgency because I was still looking at it west point in the stat was presented to me by major in military science class and it showed that the top three MOS's military occupational specialties jobs. That were fatalities are wounded in action in the first two years. Lee Rock warned certainty were Of course you know infantry. But it was a military police and eight Mike truck drivers right and. This military science infantry officer was like, well, why would that be guys you know and then we know this discussion on like tactics and it was a pretty interesting day. But his point was was will look like if a classic tactic is ide-, than WHO's on the road a lot you know and of course, it's truck drivers and then people don't realize. The extent to which I love respect motoric lease in particular in Iraq because they were just you know and I know that I've wanted different things within the military police community the ones that I dealt with a lot. They literally drove around all day visiting police stations like Iraqi, police agents in China like mentor them and supply them all this, and then you know. They would just get in hammer because they were always on the road you know but but even so that's a different war than you know like the active raid or. Whatever you know, and then like quite frankly I wasn't like some bad ass I mean the the experience of the navy seal rating team is different from mine, and so I think that's valuable and interesting to keep in mind and I think that what we do need to avoid and I try really hard to a find out perfectly. But that the most is this idea that they're you know okay there's two wars three wars maybe there's more like ten wars but some veterans fall into this. Dismissing others kind of thing you know like someone will hear. Oh well, he was just a logging or something like you know an not mean like m. p. I mean like legit like supply sergeant or something like Oh like that person service doesn't matter and Actually really dangerous talk and I think it's usually bred by insecurity. and. Self Righteousness, which I've always called the cardinal or original senator soldier but. Yeah brought that up. So that's a long insure that just wanted to mention but the book was weird One thing that readers will notice is it's like very short for me or for anyone but especially for me and that was by design I had been in L. A. With Bob Sheer senior editor O'Brien truth dig. Rest in peace for some liquor out for at home the truth dig Now appear posts in course used kind of legendary journalist eighty, four years old like interviewed several presidents, saws out there visiting him. For some. Work at USC and some other crap and. Yeah we him Steve Wasserman from heyday books were. I don't know how it came. We were discussing like patriotism order discussing it forever wars or how to fight this. You know how we can make a difference in it was kind of one of those dark conversations in Henry. You know these very well, that's like out soldiers get by as like macabre humor and stuff but you know it was one of those really. Dark in a serious conversations of futility that feeling of the problems just too big like we can't change minds I fall for that a lot. You know especially with this stuff going on in the streets I think to myself like, Oh, my God. Like I can't persuade my father like how am I gonNA persuade anyone else and You know are are people just too far apart a A. Is. Some people unreachable. These are dangerous concepts although they're reasonable. So. There's a reason it feels that way. But we're having one of those conversations about ending the wars her. reframing American foreign policy, and then like I said on the zoo talk the other night you know either Bob or bowl said something to be effective you know. If..

"There's a bias in this town toward war. Those were his exact words. He led off with addressing general eaten enough. And then he went into a disquisition on how essentially he didn't know what to do about it. I mean we. We saw. He dispatched Samantha power to the United. Nations got rid of her. I'm sure that was partly because she'd been a real influence on his decision ago. Do Libya as it were? I think he put Susan Rice a little bit more at arm's length. The I'm damn, sure, but John Carey a little more at arm's length. I think he was lecturing John Carey that day. In that room with us because Kerry. At that time was, you might recall was advocating for US troops on the ground in Syria. So Obama was telling his secretary state with no uncertainty, whatsoever voice ain't GonNa do that Dude so quick advocating board I mean he was using that moment to do all of that, but the pain that he was expressing with regard to what he couldn't control, which was the warfare state was very illustrative, very illuminating I'd never thought era president, sitting president. United States actually admit that. And part of this whole warmth and moved of course is what you ask your question about specifically the over-classification intelligence is the warping of intelligence underneath that classification where nobody can see it and know that you're warping it to fit. Your policy needs is all this and more. That's distorting good decision making and thus distorting the way we go about our business in the world, and I think as I've said increasingly now we're looking at an empire in decline, and not only in decline, but at any moment might go precipitously into that dark night. The guys that I love doing the podcast. Being able to share our experiences in the military with allies and supporters means the world to us. We can't do all the work we need you this. The episode of ours with someone anyone who you might think could be affected by it. A young person looking to join the military or possibly parents advocating for kid, joining the military conscientious citizens who care about the violence. The US wages in their name. Advocates for women and people of Color who understand the harsh environment military creates for minorities and inflicts on Those Same Minorities Across the globe. At anyone else you think might be affected by it. Please take a moment. Share this with them. Now. Our podcast is supported in a few different ways I. There's Patriot where we're blessed to have an array of wonderful supporters, helping guys I pay for some of the podcast.

"I think that what Nuremberg did achieve even if that achievement may not have held is the idea that international law is real law and that violating international law can have real consequences and as a person who believes that you. We're all sort of on this globe together. I think that the the hope of the species is in some ways. tied up with the possibility of having international structures organizations that are effective and even if laws are not always obeyed that to me doesn't mean that we shouldn't have laws but what it does mean is. That's not where you stop. That's where you start then it takes agitation and political effort and activism and the work of good lawyers and the work of people in the streets to actually see that the laws are enforced. I mean another example would be going back to nineteen fifty four. When the Supreme Court decided in Brown versus board of Education that segregation of the kindergarten through twelfth grade schools was was unconstitutional. That doesn't mean that segregation ended. You know the next day and in fact the first actual desegregation of schools in the south didn't start until nineteen fifty seven. When nine students enter black students entered a white school in Little Rock Arkansas and in the end the government had to actually call out the National Guard to protect them so the federal government had to intervene to make it possible to desegregate schools. And there's a long history that is not the subject of this interview of what happened after that in house segregation was able how how Communities were able to desegregate their schools but the point is that the law by itself isn't enough it also takes the action of citizens and other people living in a country to actually put that law into effect. Is that convincing? I think so I. It's it's it's hard for me to wrap my mind around because I asked myself about the morality of other people that have been in the military. You know here's here's a good example of Tulsi Gabbard Tulsi You know when all the stuff came out about whether she supports torture or not. And that's not really the point but that she clearly didn't understand that part of her oath made it clear that if she was protecting prisoners or detainees for any reason that their health and welfare is in her hands no different than a soldier under her command. Right we're told to ignore that And I think that's the problem is you know like you said is that we can. We can make as many laws as we want. Who's actually going to see that they're enforce and I do agree with you. The law should exist just because we having got together to find a way to stop. It doesn't mean we shouldn't continue. Sorry Yeah No. It was one yet know. Exactly what you're saying that just because we have doubts about whether the law would be enforced adequately doesn't mean we shouldn't have the law in the first place I think you know the point about about the oaths. That soldiers take is a very important one. Because I think you know you've heard the I'm sure there are no more about it than I do. The term moral injury but one of the things that is clear even from talking to the veterans who've been in my classes is how very difficult it is when one's worders conflict with the oath right when when soldiers are put in a position of either violating orders or violating oaths and. We know that they are not supposed to obey illegal orders. And that's a really easy thing for me to say sitting in my room in San Francisco. Two very different thing to say when the person who is giving you the orders and standing there with a gun and in a position to you know to cause any kinds of harm to you and so. I think I think that even and tell me what you think. It seems to me that there's also a real disconnect between the military leadership of the in the US government and the civilian leadership at the Pentagon who haven't taken those oats in haven't got the same commitment. Say to Geneva to the other you know the other laws of war that That that seems like a wedge point or a possible wedge point where you you might be able to get through traction. But I don't know post nine. Eleven always seen our generals rubber stamp everything you know. We sometimes on twitter other places. People will talk about you know Martin Dempsey. He's he's a real good General Hill. He'll stand up and there have been a couple points that I've seen where generals have come up in a in defense of trump but they're probably democratic leaning generals Going after trump. And they're not doing it for any kind of morality play and so it it. It's it's all about the orders are it. It's clearly that that's that's how it's always been anything else that we say are. The rules is lip service especially when no one who cares about as looking. Yeah Yeah I. I cannot imagine how difficult that is. I have friends who are bet to talk about it and yeah yeah. It's it's really hard. I was lucky that time I spent wandering around in somebody else's war. I did it as an unarmed civilian. And you know I learned the origin of the expression scared shitless and there were definitely times. I really thought that that was the that was gonna be the end of my life within the next few minutes but I was never put in a position of having to violate my own conscience and I feel very grateful for that. It's interesting you bring up the point about Working in with military and civilian leadership I I worked was in the navy but I worked at. Nsa so I was one of the NFC compounds in Georgia working with different agencies and different special forces groups doing activities in Yemen and Somalia in Libya and Syria so alliances that you are talking about. Yeah I I like I like what you said about all the legal thing and the thing that bothers me the most about along when it comes to what the government wants to have happened is that we talked about this little bit when we were kind of talking about the torture report movie we discussed. How like the lawyers were sitting down room talking about okay. We'll does light for mean. What does this mean? And it's like that's the shit that they do a breakdown and say well we're not breaking the law we're defining this has yup for me as someone who works in different operations when you say something was an imminent threat and you're working with you know an agency that doesn't really those two words don't actually the definition of what we're doing right. It's fucking mind boggling. Not really frustrating for me like being the analysts game of person. Who will I thought? My job was to sit there in L. The truth be objective. And here's the data. No but it's it's not about that. It's about like if your data doesn't doesn't coincide with the narrative or what the likes the operation than you know or just kind of pushing to the side and it's really. It's me so I love it I love talking about. My question is about us since we're discussing. The idea is like we want to be able to talk about this stuff. Because things are classified. We can't always talk about them. And it's really frustrating for me having worked in the community because there so much stuff that is over classified like crazy and it's it's listen to I read once By the guy who is the classifications are under the administration? And I just love. He has to say because he is so dead on about how people will overclassify things because they feel it. It'll make them look better. Personally they can say oh look. I'm I'm all originating so stuff like classified and some people won't even read stuff unless it's at a certain level classification which some people will will put things into a different level simply because they want people to reap. How wow that really messes up the ability to like ask any real questions in detail because you can't because you can't say anything. It was so frustrating to me. Just the stuff I would read every day and like I you know why is this? The way isn't high as a Stephen classified. I can find this out on the Internet right. Yeah exactly exactly. And and so much of classification is used to protect people's Butts. And but I had never heard before that that idea that you would use a higher classification to give an extra sheen to your own material that is that is just perverse but it makes sense and of course you know it makes it impossible for people who don't have security well. This is the thing though. It's not impossible like that. I wrote in mainstreaming torture and American Nuremberg. It was all in the public domain Dana Priest at the at the Washington Post wrote about stress and dress at Baghram Air Force base in early. Two thousand two. You know. It wasn't a secret and yet it's classified so it's it it really does a number on your head and it must have been really hard for you. Yeah I mean it's it's just frustrating. When you want to ask questions and something that Danny talks about a lot. A we kind of we talk about in the Pod is just the idea of the military cares like they're focusing more on tactics than strategy everything about short term gain and short term like resolution and then we pat ourselves on the back and say look at how many things we did and to say that. Like by the act of doing something. We are creating progress overnight not actually measuring progress. And this is this. Is this whole benchmarking and measuring is actually a way of evaluating work. That doesn't even come from the military. In the first place it comes out of this. The economic system we live in in which the horizon that that even large corporations care about has been shortened to like the quarterly report. Right anything. That is longer a longer time than what the what the stock price is going to be at the end of the quarter becomes irrelevant and the way that we measure work is exactly as you say by checking off activities done which have been identified in order to satisfy some goal that you've set for very short time in but nobody is asking for example as we are entering into a century in which the People's Republic of China is poised to become the most powerful nation in the world. What what is the strategy? If any of a United States of America in relationship to that. What's our strategy in relationship to Europe the European Union continent of Africa? We we don't have strategies.

"My name is Henry at I'd like to welcome uniform on a Hill co-hosts and I are a group of leftist American veterans who scour the news headlines looking looking for stories related to the military veteran communities of the U._S.. But you're not going to hear most of the typical military troops here here we take those same stories and we clear out some of the COBWEBS and bullshit we ask hard questions of our leaders and demand end to the militarism has permeated our society. We have a military budget seven hundred and fifty billion dollars three times more than China and seven times more than Russia while here at home American Erkin Infrastructure and domestic policy languish especially in the era of Donald trump however big dawn is only the latest in a long line of presidential warmongers and bastards our country has lost enough to regime change and military terry operations the world over operations that by and large only take innocent lives were providing no real protection from threats to our country Afghanistan Iraq Syria Yemen Yemen Somalia Niz year and the list goes on. It's time for a change. Thank you for being with us. Fill rescue welcome to fortress on a hill. Thank you for coming to talk about your book with us today. Well thank you for hanging Henry. If the doctor you yeah so I'd like to start by you giving us a a quick overview of your book eleven nine and the terrorists who loved bonsai trees and maybe if you could read a little extra for us that'd be great all right <hes> will the story is <hes> talks about how a young woman goes to work on the first day. She walks into her office which is in Jersey City New Jersey across the street across the river from Manhattan. <hes> knows tutor she get through the door that she is attacked and the House converted to office. This place is full of paramilitary types. She manages to escape and twenty minutes later as some terrorists web just tried to put a bomb. I'm in the Empire State Building. pull up to the same building. They run inside. There's a hostage standoff and tell the book book starts from Eric Codes of sort of between two different stories. One is the the young woman trudy who is running from the <hes> that are trying to catch her and the other is the story of poll flippin. WHO's <hes> diplomat in the State Department and <hes> the hostage standoff in this in this building which takes place when the the terrorists arrive <hes> this end very badly for everybody and <hes> is again traumatized by a terrorist attack and it seems that many of the terrorists were Iranians so now America is is beating the four drums against Iran and of course the young woman knows that is false flag attack because it was the building must full of paramilitaries <hes> and not terrorists <hes> when she arrived and I and the whole clip it on the other hand is trying to <hes> stave off this slide into into a war with Iran and the funny thing is I wrote this book <hes> starting all actually seven years ago up? Put it down picked it up. Put it down picked it up and the same thing is happening. Today we have all slang attacks than the goal Oman and they're pushing American war with Iran so <hes> smog about having predicted <hes> what was going to happen and we'll you shouldn't be it's it's <hes> it's easy for anybody who wants to see the pieces fall together but it's also so a lot a lot easier to just dismiss them and take the take the established narrative for Iran yeah yeah that's that's quite true but anyways so I'll read a short short from end <hes> the <hes> <hes> you can <hes> here a little bit about the hostage standoff <hes> and how hell that came about sounds great so <hes> <hes> let's see here <hes> further events. I'm Charles Druce treat that morning. Literally be said older world knows the story about how the five men entered the Empire State Building Nine Hundred Seventy A._M.. On the security video impatiently went through security little halo of their sport the features they wrote an elevator the fourth floor the I asked one of the base of the building that directly borders the sidewalk this floor held office that had been vacated a month before by Norwegian Shipping Container Representative Security Alarms had been taken out there enforced opened a temporary doors at the space opened a wind on the thirty fourth street side drop the string time to away out the window and with the help of a confederate down below drew into rope each heavier than the last the second was a robe robust inch instinct cord that could have pledged a yacht to its doc the drew up a smallest block and tackle and attached to a student exposed ceiling beam with this they drew up to three wooden crates from the Ben Each big enough to full house will air conditioner well then they go to the they they're caught they flee to the house and this is the hostage standoff and from there as everyone remembers retz orange telephone demands anik evacuations of surrounding houses policemen crouching reporters purring dip those hurting for Taga offers squinting seemingly reportedly handedly apparently allegedly all the wet nurses of modern journalism rose to the task of covering alive prices so while teams on Act lockers specialty stretched muscles local police chief sipped coffee the White House expressed concern Jin stroking specialists from ever prefight in special them gathered at each end of the one hundred block of Charles Street where a little carnival of professionalism crackled in homes all at the servant and stuff look good and the extinction of public danger. That's great. Thank you for thank you for sharing that with us. Fill so as someone who has written about fiction about false flags and terrorism in general I would imagine that your view of September eleventh and what happened that day must be vital one. Can you give us an understanding to to what your opinion is and how it ultimately influences is writing well. I was immediately sort of suspicious of the nine eleven officials story for different reasons and with time began to look into the alternative theories of what had happened and the looked at the what the truth there's were saying what the bunkers were saying and actually came to rest on the side of the truth irs who say that the buildings were taken down with demolition closets and have different theories about who was responsible in salon and so forth. I suppose that in a lot of way I <hes> my view of these things is a lot influenced by the fact that I I majored in international relations in college and this was at the time in the late seventies early eighties when there was still a great deal of suspicion of the government and of of <hes> what how the real decisions were are being made <hes> there was still a great deal of questions of how we getting it why we got into be at now. Why did it go on so long so I suppose that I come from generations that is naturally rather suspicious of of foreign policy policy and <hes> the foreign policy machinery in general and I just that <hes> in writing is this novel in writing about a dramatic traumatic situation <hes> which is a terrorist attack but on the other hand <hes> sort of a comic situation in which <hes> <hes> a sort of cobble of deep state types are putting together other this plot and <hes> my initial my staff the schism of <hes> of the deep state and the people who make the big decisions is very much reflected in the book as the title says he lives in nine and the terrorists hula bonsai trees? It's sort of part drama and part comedy. What's <hes>? What kind of research do you do? And how long do you spend. Researching searching before beginning of book like this actually what I do Henry is I write the book and then I figure out what kind of research I have to do. You sometimes I do the research and I find out that I can't use an element or another in the book sure and <hes> so I guess that my research is sort of just Mr Germane to to book itself but in this case I enter take a very careful look at the Empire State Building <hes> I had look at some just basic facts about about different different titles different <hes> <hes> off officials in the State Department poll Clinton for example is the deputy assistant undersecretary for Political Affairs title really exists in the State Department Deputy Undersecretary of State and so anyways I gotta you gotTa event title for every level so that's what they do and different things I even had to look into Jersey City. <hes> I had to walk down the streets. I'm Google Earth look get what type of <unk> neighborhoods as what type of <hes> houses what kind of different <hes> electrical cabling it adds all kinds of things like that <hes> and so really the point when when I do the research it's not to get every detail correct but it would it. It allows me to present what is feasible story a lot of writers especially thriller writers. They want to impress you with all of the research that they've done and <hes> still they put in a lot of extra deep ills that they don't need and <hes> sound barrier authoritative but really it's just a a lot malarkey for me as long as my story is these bullet based on fact then that's good enough some on sounds good to me. No this is if I'm remembering correctly. This is your fourth book. Is that right Fifth Book Fifth Book my bad so I'm curious to know how did how did publishing your first. I Book Change Your Process. Most authors really have a big a big change over following their first book. I'm wondering what what your process was like well. I wouldn't wouldn't say it changed a lot. I published my first book and then immediately started to work on the second that <hes> very soon after and and <hes> I've always worked with a self publisher <hes> especially because it's very difficult for a for a new novelist to break into the business all of the the jury agents they're all looking or the next <hes> you know the next Harry Potter the next <hes> Hunger Games something like that and somebody who comes along with just a good novel really doesn't get very far because while he's unknown sure people don't know it's very much a chicken and egg thing you you have to sell a lot of books to become known and you have to be known to sell a lot of books and this is really the only book that I've been able to sort of publicize and <hes> you know talk about <hes> because it has some sort of residents with the current events <hes> my my third novel for example is a romance connected connected with a thriller and I think it's a romance that's on a par with the Madison County or <hes> Love Story but <hes> you know I'm not GonNa get on your show to talk about a romance snuff go and so you know it's been very hard to sell more than a few dozen copies of of any of my my books <hes> pity but that's that's the way it is so having studied false flags and terrorism were extensively. How do you think that we aside from from works like yours? How do you think we can best educate the public about false flag attacks and and what can we do to push back against that very strongly established narrative? I think it's a very <hes> very difficult thing to do. In fact one of the points that I make making my book is that <hes> the Truth Irs <hes> come along like the sand shoveled brigade pointing out <hes> inconsistencies pointed account mistakes that this isn't that but they get married that'll very little from the public and the same thing with nine eleven you have excellent research that has been done. You have <hes> scientists who who are lined up saying yes. The Twin Towers fell as a result of demos controlled demolition but in order to get a real push in the public is very hard <hes> one of the points that I bring up in my book again the.

"What what comes down on the ethical behavior if not malpractice by medical personnel Guantanamo? No becomes is only accentuated at in the CIA black sites where back in two thousand two medical officials are drawn into a program would appears to be, you know, absolute type of experiments done on prisoners yet the CIA black sites and a memoir about this was published just last year. It was released published. I I did I'm the well not me, but it was published so to speak where it was released by the ACLU facilitated by reproducing that report online in writing an article analyzing this ninety page memoir by memorandum for the record. If you will by the director of the CIA as office of medical services who have been involved in the CIA torture program and and while. Hit the press because a portion of that memoir discussed made public the fact that the CIA had discussed the use of troops drugs in this interrogation program. Ultimately, they chose not to use the truce drives for various reasons, they said, and I do kind of even believe that. But but that was a very small part of the report. And so I said, let's look at the whole report most people go, okay. That's the press that must be the story. Right. The story must be honing about using drugs. They didn't use truth drug. Wow. What a story. But when I read the actual, doc. Nice at wow, that's not even the really the story here know, the stories I read it was he was revealed. He was quite open. It turned out that that there. There was that experiment program that they were using. But that was separate from the other that there was there were two sets of. Torture programs going on one was highly regulated was medically regulated had constant and medical personnel on site twenty four seven and everything was directly planned out. You know, if you wanted to use a torture technique it had to be sent back to the the RDI's roofing for the that the headquarters was organized by special component within the CIA called the special missions division. It was very very tightly run. And then there was this other program where a guy by the name of goal Rochman had been chained to the floor and freezing temperatures head die at a place called the salt pit. Or the dark prison in Afghanistan run by the CIA and their contractors and that there were other prisons, and and that they didn't have doctors there. They didn't have things weren't highly regulated they were using another whole set of interrogation techniques, which they labeled standard interrogation techniques. Whereas the other program used something called danced into our nation techniques. So I looked at this. I said Weser going on pardon me. You're telling me that there were two different ways in which the CIA ran their torture prisons. Why was that? And so for future reference, we will look at I'd be happy to talk to you about just wet in the world was going on because it's fascinating in. It's important. It opens up it has direct linkages back to illegal forms of warfare experiments that were done. Under M, K ultra and and and whose origins go back to the the types of research that was supposedly done in response to the discovery fake discovery. But the discovery brainwashing about of US preservative war about the use of biological warfare. It all links together. Well, yeah. That's it's it's incredible. To listen to Jeff I I'm sorry.

"Southbound. Long. Shining said. I many this is fortress on a hill. Thank you for joining us for those who to the podcast BT, Danny? And I are three left is combat veterans who take the military veterans stories of the day and provide some much-needed historical context and examination Dr. Jeffrey k welcome to for Saana hill. Thank you for being with us today. Hi, thank you very much. Glad to be here. So. You and I discussed earlier that the main the main thrust wanting to have you on was to discuss the info you have about there being two portrait programs run during the Bush administration. But a couple of other things that I wanted to touch on briefly before that and one of the very fascinating things that you've written about is about the biowarfare report regarding US forces in the Korean war. And I was wondering if you live our listeners a bit of an overview on that starting with plague infested, fleas ripe. We'll plaguing pluses. Feeding fleas was a article I wrote talking about one particular well ruin the context the article I've mentioned others a series of attacks took place in spring of nineteen fifty two in which the United States Air Force dropped in various forms plague fleas that. Human fleas that had been. Meddled with to carry the plague virus, and they were dropped over various villages in areas of North Korea, and ultimately China as the work proceeded north and killed is unclear amount of people the various reasons why we don't know how many people actually died of plague, but in my article Izhak about some of the cases in some of the documented deaths in particular in trying to humanize what happened the looked at the of the death of one particular villager, I'm back in April. Just this time this year of nineteen fifty two young as the name of pack young ho just so people can put a name in a face to to what happened to people. Now, this was part of a larger series as investigators looked into this of. Experimental biological warfare attacks that were made by the US military, and of course, denied strenuously that they were made by the US military in in in nineteen fifty well arguably late nineteen fifty one through earlier nineteen fifty three mid nineteen fifty three when the the. Negotiations over armistice became much more serious, and and the war was winding down, but the primary year of the of the of experimental warfare was in nineteen fifty to say experimental, but a decision apparently was made according to one of the airmen list captured a Colonel in the Marine Corps. Very I up actually living chief of staff who had ended up being captured and controversy confessed about these germ warfare. And. Documented for or his captors the Chinese. You know, what what how this came about who the personnel where the generals cetera in how they proceeded e said that in may nineteen fifty two they felt ready to go to a larger skill form of the of the war further. Experimental period had ended or the purely experimental period. Had ended met was time for more large scale strategic biological warfare in and the thing about all. This is bizarre. Is it may sound to your listeners was that. This was not the first time that large scale biological warfare had taken place in modern times. And in fact, many of the same personnel apparently were involved, and I'm speaking here of something many, many if not most of your listeners forever heard of Japan's unit seven thirty. One led by man, doctor in a military man by name of Sureau itchy and the unit. Seven thirty one personnel in more and more comes out about this this Japanese units. History. We're part of the club Toon Army in Manchuria, although they had divisions. Elsewhere in. Huntly be searched units in Tokyo, but also operations that took place in other theatres of the war that Japan was involved in and they were experimenting with and using biological warfare..

"Southbound. Long. Prodding. There we go. David Swanson, welcome to fortress on a hill. Thank you for coming to chat with me today. Hi, thanks for having me on. So I'm really new to world beyond war, and I find so much great stuff on your guys site. And I attended that militarism in the media webinar earlier in the year. I know you have a multi week one coming up. I can't remember what the name of it was. But could you give our listeners just to a quick break down? What world be on wars about? Yeah. Well, I could go on for hours and people can look at the website for hours at world beyond war dot org. But basically, it is an organization that's that has members in one hundred seventy five countries that is dedicated to advancing a stored the complete abolition of war and preparations for war, and militaries and weaponry, and to do so through both education and activism, so activists campaigns dedicated toward closing military, bases divesting monies from war profiteering educational campaigns, including online course that we're doing right now aimed at getting people to understand the possibility and the desire ability and the necessity of abolishing war, and how to take that message to others. I was listening to your five minute breakdown. Sees me five five year breakdown on we'll be on war. And you had mentioned that in a win. When you got it started that there were so many other antiwar peace pro-peace organizations that you weren't interested in reinventing the wheel. I think is what you mentioned that it was wanting to be a supplement to all those other organizations as opposed to something that is trying to compete with not the we compete in that way. But but in terms of the ideas, and the the people behind it. Yeah. And I think I've already mentioned what's we saw as the unique need, namely that we have an organization aimed at abolition of the whole institution of war that could talk about not just the mistakes or the misdeeds of particular war or battle or weapon system of. But the problems raided by the entire institution, which of course, kills more people through the diversion of racehorses away from human environmental needs in zoom militarism than it does through all the wars, which does extensive environmental damage as much through the preparations for war as through the wars and so forth, and that we create something global. So that, you know, in our in the online course that we're doing at the moments where we have students from around the world when someone someone refers to our military. Mary, and how can we can make our military a little better than it is I'm able to ask who's military? What does that mean our military, and it's a help in getting people to start thinking of themselves as not being identified with any military to to to get people thinking globally in a group. That's that's global Suren and to to to really talk past all of the excuses that most people have come up with with pushing away war. You know that it it is just but mistakes were made. And you know, the people we've been educated that the people are monsters when that's hardly if ever the case, my the main thing I wanted to talk to you about today about violence caused by veterans, and we talk a lot about veterans suicide. But there isn't nearly as much discussion on. On. The the potential for homicide that comes from people serving in the military, and your book were ally discusses this in in quite a bit of detail. Could you give us a little bit of on on your thoughts on violence caused by veterans? Yeah. Well, of course, every individual is unique can someone could go into the military predisposed to such violence and remained that way and many many veterans are not violent in any way. But statistically, if you look for example, at mass shootings in the United States betwee looking at males between the idol no Mateen's up to middle age. Veterans are over twice at least over twice possibly much more likely than non veterans to be those mass shooters and the outcome of of being willing to recognize that taboo fact, I think is not discrimination against veterans

"Tragedy. So moving on to our next headline here. Republican Senator Martha mccully recently admitted to being rate while she was on active duty in the air force. She shared this. During a hill a hill hearing on sexual assault. Preyed upon and then raped by a superior officer. That was Senator Martha mcsally as NPR's quil Lawrence. Reports MC Sally is pushing military leaders to change a culture that has struggled with this problem for years. Arizona Republican Martha mcsally has been called an air force legend first woman to flying combat first woman to command combat squadron, and then voice in congress promoting women in uniform. She stunned panel of witnesses, including rape survivors, when she told her own story. So like you I am also a military sexual assault survivor. But unlike so many Braves Veivers, I didn't report being sexually assaulted. Like, so many women and men I didn't trust the system at the time. I blame myself. I was shamed. And confused. I thought I was strong but felt powerless mic. Sally referred to more than one assailant during her twenty six years in the military when she did approach command many years later, she was re traumatized. I was horrified at how my attempt to share. Generally, my experiences were handled. I almost separated from the air force at eighteen years over my despair. Like many victims. I felt the system was raping me all over again studies show the rate of sexual assault in the military. Especially for women hasn't significantly improved. Since MC Sally left the air force in two thousand ten some are pushing for a change in the military code of Justice to take rape cases away from commanding officers. But MC Sally says she wants commanders held responsible. We must allow we must demand that commanders stay at the center of the solution and live up to the moral and legal responsibilities that come with being commander that raises the question whether commanders will be any better now than when she was in the air force. Former army Colonel Ellen haring with the service women's action network had this exchange with MC Sally removing commanders from the making process since the signal that there are some some crimes that are so severe that commanders have no place in deciding if when or how they are prosecuted. So that's why. That it's important to move commanders who I don't have the same confidence in their skills or abilities as as you. Thanks again. I appreciate the perspective. Everybody on this panel. I respectfully disagree, but MC Sally's democratic colleague, New York Senator Kirsten gillibrand has pushed for years to remove rape cases from the chain of command. If you don't believe your commander is going to have your back because they're the assailant then you don't necessarily have his boss or his boss is gonna have your back because of that chain. So from a survivor perspective, we've heard over and over again that the reason you take it out of the chain of command is because you want someone who is actually trained to make the decision technical decision. Mcsally pointed to improvements that have been made the military now has a special victims counsel who represents sexual assault victims interests in court something that is lacking in many civilian courts. But she says the change has to be in American culture. How do we ensure that that Coulter is one of respect and honor and dignity to include everyone men and women not being assaulted knob being? Palliative against not being harassed and everything on the continuum of harm, something you discussing the podcast before the idea that sexual assault crimes in the military should be investigated by outside agency. You're board chicken a chance for retaliation by the chain of command on considerably. I do feel the system needs to punish commanders don't appro act appropriately continue to include them in a process where their actions can cause more harm. As is an go for me. Go ahead. I just wrote about this in my article that some of you may have previewed and then and then read this week on truth dig about my time in inpatient treatment for PTSD depression, anxiety. I'll call whole bunch of things. When I served in units, my whole career until the very end not gays weren't allowed in and of course, women weren't allowed. So I I actually served with very few women, the exception to that was when I I thought it was point which, you know, about twenty five percent of my students now female because of the academy started late let a lot, but the point is I didn't know a whole lot of women in the military. So before me the sexual assault epidemic was always an academic issue. It was something I studied and read about it wasn't something. I felt this early at West Point that changed to a certain extent when I had a couple of of victims of survivors in my classes, but one of whom was very open with me about it to a staggering great. But then I went zone of the thirty days.

"Southbound. On. Guiding. I'm henry. This is fortunate sauna hill. Thank you for joining us for those who to the podcast BT, Danny and I are three leftists combat veterans. Take the military and veterans stories of the day and provide some much-needed historical context and examination. Good morning listeners. We've got a whole bunch of different stuff today for you guys starting off with a few headlines. A new veteran has settled a lawsuit with the VA for nine hundred fifty thousand dollars the veteran received surgery from Dr Allen Koslow for a blocked artery in his leg that left him with long-term severe pain and late weakness later, the veteran found negative information regarding Koslow practice records from demoain Iowa through a Google search which included the VA's decision to hire him in South Carolina. Where the veteran received surgery, quote the cases one of several nationally in which the VA hospitals have hired physicians who were disciplined in other states. For example, the Iowa City VA hospital acknowledges twenty seventeen that improperly hired neurosurgeon. John Henry Schneider, even though Schneider's Wyoming, medical license had been revoked over malpractice allegations. Now causal did not have South Carolina, medical license when the Columbia VA hired him. But he also didn't need one. Under federal rules. A doctor who has a valid license in any state can practice? VA hospitals across the nation. VA hospitals are not suppose to hire physicians who've licenses have been suspended revoked 'cause lows Iowa license was on probation. So I plan to keep an eye on this subject. It's something that has been a continual problem with the VA as to what standards the us for their doctors. And who it is that gets to decide what standards are followed. They definitely need to alter like this to prevent people. From administering care who shouldn't be giving veterans or really anyone care and add this to the pile of the many reasons veterans don't trust the care. They receive at the VA. How is that even possible that it's not required? You know what I mean? Like, I don't understand how it's not required to be fully licensed to be you know, I just seems so illogical to me that any organization let alone the one that's charged with our, you know, our veterans, which is one of the largest, non direct military, procreation and the budget. I mean, how that wouldn't be at a minimum requirement that these Bs most, you know, the top people in their field with all the qualifications. They need. I mean, it just seems absolutely ludicrous. It does it does. And and. Absolutely terrifying. To find out that the VA could have done something when it hired the asshole. And simply didn't there was an, and it's something that you hear not just view circles. But with Medicare Doxa and stuff like that that it's find out later on that this guy uprated on people for however, many years and people knew he was shit, but nobody got rid of him. And so the the questions about how doctors are disciplined, and whether or not doctors who have been suspended by their states medical association should even be hired. I mean, I don't think everything should be held against him. But there needs to be aligned to wear. Okay. This person has enough flags in their record. There's no way they should be a doctor. Let alone a government hired one. Yeah. I mean, totally agree. Keep an eye on this story. I have a feeling it's going to be the last and you're right that every time something like this comes to lie. All it does is further. You know, disturb veterans and turn them sour against the VA. And you know, it's cool. And it's funny to bash the VA, you know, it's it's just becomes a part of life as veteran. But really, it's it's not okay. I mean, we we we should be the veterans should be very pleased with the care they received, you know, and it shouldn't become a joke shouldn't become a common joke to to talk about VA care and consider it, you know, a contradiction in terms, so yeah, let's let's let's wash this and wait for the next one K, but we need to publicize it and raise our voices today haven't Zach feeling way. There's going to be changed. I'm hoping there will be I'm hoping there really will be.
