What Country Does Mitch McConnell Actually Represent?

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

Why Is America Getting Mixed Up in Foreign Wars When We Have a Mess at Home?

"Angela Cote via wrote the book literally called the ruling class. He was also probably one of the wisest foreign policy experts ever. And for those of you listening that want to get a really good understanding of how we should approach American foreign policy, Angela Kota villa was one of the most prudent. One of the most fair and pro American thinkers. And challenge the CIA and the security apparatus unfortunately, he died tragically. I was supposed to spend time with him, actually, he was unable to make it because he got COVID and he died of something else. It was awful. But he had this, the reason I bring up Angela Kota villa and Michael Anton, who's with hillsdale college. That's a great actual reminder that I have to tell you about hillsdale, the wonderful hillsdale college Beacon of the north, Michael Anton, who is not, doesn't necessarily agree with everything that Angela coded via says, but is, in some ways, disciple, I don't want to speak for him, but he would say this better than I could, which is you should not get involved in foreign conflicts if you have extensive domestic problems at home. What are you doing saber rattling across the world? Trying to resolve border disputes when our when our own border is wide open, we have inflation, the country is politically divided and you have a regime that is wildly unpopular. Well, that is exactly what the security apparatus is doing. Partly to distract away from the failed regime of Biden, but also to try and feed the fire of the military industrial complex because look, if you're the military industrial complex, you're looking at Pfizer AstraZeneca Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin Northrop Grumman Boeing, they say, hey, come on, cut us in for some of this. We got no wars going on right now. Front page of the New York Times, on Ukrainian front, warily awaiting the worst. After 8 years of war, grim anticipation of Russian invasion. So now we are being fed a nonstop line that we should care about the Russian Ukrainian border

Judge: Loudoun County Teen Guilty of Sexually Assaulting Classmate in Girls' Bathroom

"You are seeing in loudon county Virginia and this is new out of loudon county, Virginia. That parents that have children in loudoun county Virginia, 54% of them are going to vote Republican or for young kid. So The Washington Post came out and they were like, oh, the story is very misleading of what's happened in loudoun county. But guess what allowed in county judge, this is breaking in the last 24 hours, finds boy in a skirt, guilty of raping, female student and girls bathroom remember we talked about the story, and the media told us that this wasn't true. The victims have been vindicated, and their parents demand apology and kids walk out of their classroom and protest against schools. This couldn't be happening at a worse time for Terry mcauliffe. This is hit a apex where all of a sudden, in Virginia. And let me just reemphasize this. I said this yesterday. Virginia, this is the ruling class governorship. This is the place where you wine and dine Boeing and north of Grumman and Lockheed Martin, where you give money to Pfizer AstraZeneca and Moderna. This is the governor of Virginia is kind of a ribbon cutting deal. You get all the nice handouts you get invited to all the Washington D.C. parties because you're nearby. You get treated really well. Being governor of Virginia is one of the top perks of being part of the Democrat ruling class. It's rather desirable. But now all of a sudden the Democrats have deployed Obama, they deploy camel Harris, which I don't think that's going to help. They're deploying Joe Biden, Rasmussen reports. 32% of America believes 32% of Americans believe America is on the right track. 64% of Americans think America's on the wrong track. 60 4%.

"Trying to keep some of the military programs that they have. There was an analyst from harrow. Lynch who i was shocked he he basically rod epstein he actually asked the ceo is like you know. This wasn't gross story now it's a flow story. Seems like a rudderless ship or he kinda cut a people are saying. I thought that i took onions to tell the. Ceo of a company that he's running around ship and the answer was really interesting. The ceo is a young guy named jim hasslet and he'd come from american tower. He knows technology. American tower the builder of cell phone towers and he talked about the long term change. In what lockheed martin used to do since world war two actually cited world war two in this conference call saying we used to make programs are used to make stuff and sell the stuff to the military. Now we're thinking about a mission oriented paradigm and that's different than what we've been doing since world war two Here is What jim tastes had to say when he was asked. Are you running to ship. Wire to sell in the stuff like you used to do. And he described a modern day lockheed martin but i'm getting Tremendous traction with senior government officials in the us and elsewhere understand that while our industry and they're hers. Our products and services over the years has been effective is largely that is in the physical world if you will in county and world. We're really good at technology is like i responded phase trial Precision weapons etcetera. Those are those are the newtonian world. Really good at as an industry in our customer knows how to buy what. We're not as good as we need to be. In the defense industry is merging that excellence and the physical world that we can bring to national defense but merging that with the developments accelerated developments in the digital world like companies specialized in things like five g. and is distributed computing and networking because if we merge those two things together in the ways that we're forecasting. We're building technology mass. We will increase the effectiveness of our current set of platforms and out faster and more robust way than be on just using the goal attributes in the physical world technologies. We're gonna keep doing all that We actually know turn on. And after verner for mission capability for our customers by by celebrating digital technologies indoor space and that is our strategy. He doesn't have a strategy. It's not rudderless. I thought that was fascinating. This notion of newtonian world for lockheed martin of old and a more digital world in lockheed martin of new if you will need didn't say digital transformation was about to say it for him boy. What's your next year down. The company called facebook full disclosure or few shares of facebook in the johnson family. 401k We also own shares of facebook in our household but we are not on facebook. we delete facebook accounts Over a year ago. Facebook shaimaa hypocritical. Stuff really yeah. So you believe in the stock. I believe we own it. I mean i think you know it's a lot of our. It's in a lot of different piles but facebook trades her f. b. shares fell today but they are higher by. Oh well just thirteen percent over the last twelve months so yeah. Let's talk about all this. Facebook news all observers them a lousy investor. Yes look at the reason i i. I'm not. I don't guess investment advice you wouldn't follow my investment advice if you could get it For example facebook vastly Before the market but facebook to me has always been a free cash flow story and while they reported earnings that were seen as a disappointment of wall street. Guidance was a disappointment of wall street. The stock was down in after hours trading after they announced the numbers although i think was up a little bit kind of break easily was falling today. And we'll see but not a big move into stock today nonetheless and then also a share buyback which might be helping stock who cares about the stock. I always say the business is growing like crazy. Twenty nine billion in revenues up thirty five percent over last year's record year record third quarter operating profits up thirty percent to eleven or ten point four billion dollars operating margins of thirty six percent which while it's less than last year it's thirty six percent operating margin that's unbelievable daily active users just when you thought everyone was on facebook including isaac his family or on instagram. What's up well. In fact lack of users were six percents. And we're monthly active users so the real story though was the headwinds from the changes and apple iowa's fourteen that don't allow the targeting and tracking of users across lots of different apps that really hits facebook where it lives which is selling advertising across not just facebook properties but elsewhere and understanding who those customers are telling advertisers who the customer is who they're targeting and how they can target them Facebook thinks that they can rebuild those capabilities and somehow work around that. I don't know that they can face a faith in facebook technologists. You'll want to believe that. And maybe the bigger question is if you can't target the viewers of an ad across lots of different apps and lots of different devices. Do you want to advertise with facebook at all. Here is a chief operating officer sheryl sandberg. I think it's hard to sit here and decide exactly where we're going to end up at the all of this is gonna be a multi year effort. We've definitely seen it hit already and we're definitely focused on tools to help advertisers. We think we have opportunities to strengthen targeting ourselves both by the work ourselves and as part of industry contortion. You're right in your question in that. Advertisers have to make a choice of where they advertise so the question for us is how good can are targeting. Be compared to other i think are targeting. Ten suffer compared to others like apple who have direct data themselves. But i think are targeting still remains. I think in very very many ways very good for advertisers. When you compare us on an roi we've always performed. Well we still do even though we've taken a ahead and we're focused on continuing to do that for business. Think she took a shot at apple. There that i think is saying well now apple can just keep all this private information for themselves when apple his very specifically said they also will not track users across different devices just to sell ads so that. I don't know that it's taking a little shot at tim. Cook in the folks. The fine folks cupertino just on the road from facebook sir mountain view headquarters but this is one to watch and It's you know it's it's interesting to to really see what advertising will look like since it's changed so much in the last fifteen years are coming up next.

Did America's CEOs Know About Covid Before It Hit?

"One of my listeners and patrons asked me a question about what I thought about Jeff Bezos stepping down from Amazon. I don't really know. I don't know, but it does follow with all the resignations of major brands that we've seen in the last year and a half. I know that last summer there had been like 1300 CEOs from massive corporations throughout the world that stepped down from their position in the preceding 12 months. In January alone, there were 200 chief executives vacated their comfortable positions. And they cashed in, obviously, like they all do, but they left. And these local businesses either. This is Nokia, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, L Brands, LinkedIn, match, Hulu, Tinder, groupon, Disney, Harley-Davidson, Mastercard, Nike, eBay, you get the picture. The list goes on and on. Why are they doing this? It's not that uncommon to see top level dudes step down when there's a recession. That happens, but shit got crazy in 2019. A lot of these companies saw like insane stock market highs. The economy was booming. I mean, Corona was just a beer. It had nothing to do with the virus at that point. But this type of mass exodus that didn't happen even in 2008 when the whole fucking bottom fell out. What the financial crisis and then the subsequent recession didn't happen then. So it doesn't make a ton of sense for a guy like me to put two and two. I don't really understand why it's all happening. Because most of these high powered dudes left before coronavirus went all across America. Last march. Some of the theories that are making the rounds, you know, like Jeff Bezos, if he didn't leave when his dick pic was circulating, I don't know why he thinks this is a better time. I don't know anyone cares. These guys have enough money for ten fucking lifetimes. They don't care about us. Don't care about them. But the first and most obvious possible reason is that some people think these executives might have been tipped off by friends in big Chinese business that a virus was about to hit U.S. soil, a very debilitating pandemic. And it was going to hit America hard. Some people think that news was spread out among big, big bosses.

SPACE FARCE

"Days ago. We observed the thirty fifth anniversary of the space shuttle. Challenger's bush in the killed seven brave astronauts and a chance to actually get into that. I just thought it kind of bring the room down and it would it. Would basically a habit gets reflect back on the failure that the shuttle program eventually became. I'm man i'm and it's arguable. That the shuttle missions were a failure but it just Conversations before with people who said it's the equivalent of taking a bus out of the garage. Hang around the earth a couple times. That's all it was but you know it was interesting. At least the space program had something going on at the time. And i thought it would. I even met a shuttle astronaut Good guy Just that by the time We had a conversation on a cable channel about moon landing in. I didn't like each other afterwards. And i i didn't. I didn't wanna cause trouble with him. In fact he was just an amazing astronaut. Let's astronaut my god guys space. You know pro. You know again. I look at astronauts. It's like i. I'd look at a veteran. Or i look at a soldier who fights. I mean they got more than i do. I sit studio. And gripe all the time but i just you know. I was amazed by The he was not my first astronaut. I've met a few Never met buzz aldrin or ordeal armstrong. Or anybody like that. A few shuttle astronauts. I've i've met a former nasa. Well no i interviewed chuck cernan but i was never. I interviewed him over the phone. So i i don't know i just have an affinity for space i i i love it because of course i love the topic of aliens. Ufo's avi lopburi more. We come on. Space travels amazing. I mean we'd star trek star wars. These are things. I really like And you know noticing too. I grew up in utah. Where more than fire call was twenty miles away thirty miles away from where i lived and this is where the rings were made for the space shuttle program of course the failed challenger explosion was because of the ordering problems were more than thiokol and only two failures in the whole space shuttle program where people were killed. Astronauts were killed. No real new information though. That was out there and You know and we kept being promised this was just you know the shuttle program was going to be used to not only take the bus out for a dry but it was also going to be used to go to the space station and bring astronauts food and stuff and now well for the longest time we were contracting russia. We're having a deal with russia to send astronauts to the space shuttle to the space station to well actually said food to the space as well and i thought why are we relying on russia in and this whole nonsense about how russia was our enemy and everything. They're our enemy. Why are they helping us with our space program. Just didn't make any sense. But yeah i mean looking back at our field. Space programs is important. Indicate that president. Barack obama crippled dass his efforts to send astronauts beyond low earth orbit. When obama came into office. he didn't want a number of other. Presidents have done to determine their goals for nasa. He formed a presidential commission to study the space agency and then he came up with some recommendations so he you a committee the committee. You basically. you're saying well. I think there are far more important things. We need to invest our money. And so i'm gonna cut your budget. You know basically what area. We're gonna bring you altogether. Cut your budget. So you're going to have to deal with you know whatever that's all it's been cutting budget and budget cutting and and And so that's why you have now space x that's why you have You know these other companies visas and others who want to do space because you know space has been neglected. The budgets have been neglected in our government for some time but we had a lot of conservative presidents like george w bush and of course donald trump. Who said yeah. We're all the speech program. Let's get it going. And the reason why is because there's brooke obama once said and this is one of the reasons why he basically said no to you know exorbitant budgets for space. He says well. You know spaces. In america. First issue. And we should be more universal. We she wore. We wore worldly with our concepts in our conquest of space. We need to do you know we didn't do it all together as a world. It's a it's a world bring people together in a world government or world philosophy. I think reagan kinda hinted to what he said. You know our differences worldwide would vanish. We were facing an alien threat from outside of this world but that was an alien threat. That was the idea that if there were aliens out there wanting to eat us then we would certainly band together as a group. I mean that's what independence day was all about right. See the independence day. Movie or armageddon were nasa saves the day. You know it's time and time again. We get told it. Our space program is amazing. Well yeah they do amazing things. But it's not as amazing as it used to be. I mean lockheed. Martin ceo norm augustine Headed up the augustine commission during the obama administration actually was named after maga sanofi headed up with the. It's called the augustine commission and basically they returned with a set of recommendations after few wants convening during the obama administration so the commission found the program then in existence project constellation was not execute under any reasonable

The Parents Are Not Alright

"I'm in the virtual studio today with producer Ginny Moon Hey Jeannie I'm waving to you all the way from Harlem, Hey Maria, I'm in Queens. So Jeannie were talking about our favorite topic today parenting, right? Yeah and parenting in twenty twenty is a whole new level parenting. You know what I have adult children now. So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

The U.S. Hypersonics Program Matures

"We're here because really in the span of a couple of weeks, our knowledge of the US hypersonic weapons program is significantly expanded and a lot of these disparate pieces that we have been tracking are falling into place. Steve. been at the forefront of reporting a lot of these developments. Can you summarize the highlights for us? Right well, just to kind of give you a a an update Eh cross the entire spectrum because it's a huge portfolio. So let's go back to March that was the last flight test hypersonic flight tests that the DOD has has carried out with that was with the blog zero common hypersonic lied body. That's the glide body that's going to be the front end for the army's long range hypersonic weapon and the Navy's intermediate range, conventional prom strike, which is summering launch missile. That was a successful flight test It was later described by president trump as a as the super duper missile We were trying to figure out what that was, but that according to CNN's reporting. That's that's what he was referring to. At the time. The Air Force meanwhile has got a couple of different programs. Ongoing one is the AGM one, eighty, three A. Rapid Response Weapon Lockheed Martin design for for both the front front end and the integration, and they did a captive carry flight tests that would appear to be pretty successful just a couple of weeks ago and they are moving that into flight test with the FRONTON actually incorporating the design from the tactical boost glide program from Darpa that was supposed to be an independent separate. Well, not quite there. They are linked that was supposed to be a separate flight test program that they've now folded that into the aero vehicle design and will continue testing that through era there. was also on the Hawk programs. That's the next set of flight tests that are supposed to be happening That's hypersonic everything weapon concepts which is basically a scream jet powered cruise missile There's a Lockheed version and Raytheon version We know back in May that the Lockheed attempted to do a captive carry test with their version of the Hawk missile but there was some kind of failure during the flight test We still don't know exactly what it, what it was but it appeared to be somewhat damaging and but since then we hit me for nothing about. where. They're going with that except for the fact that the Air Force a few weeks ago, launched a follow on program to develop an operational prototype. Jet Powered cruise missile that you know would be a follow on to the the program But in the competition Air Force basically selected three companies a couple of weeks ago to form the competitive field for the follow on Hawk missile and those three companies are Lockheed Raytheon and Boeing. Which of course, the interesting part there is Boeing locking Raytheon are heavily involved in the Arrow Program and the TV g program and Hawk program, but Boeing has been shut out. So this gives them a chance to come back into the hypersonic Arena for at one point buying of course, was the sort of champion in especially in the air breathing propulsion space with the x fifty one program, and if you go way back I'm sure guy could could chime in on on these programs would be like the space shuttle and fifteen with Boeing's legacy companies so. That kind of brings us up to speed with where we are right now.

China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close

"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

China to impose sanctions on Lockheed Martin over Taiwan arms deal

"China says it will impose sanctions on the American aerospace and defense company Lockheed Martin for agreeing to an arms deal with Taiwan. NPR's Emily Thing, reports. China did not specify what those sanctions would include. In 2015 Lockheed Martin did sell some civilian helicopters to China through its Sikorsky subsidiary. But Lockheed Martin another American defence companies are not able to sell most of their military technology to China anyways. Because of stringent US export controls that block such transactions.

Booms Sustainable Supersonic

"Supersonics and sustainability are two words. You rarely hear uttered together, but that's about to change. Boom supersonic is developing the first civil supersonic airliner of the twenty first century, and unlike the concord, it will be able to operate sustainably. Boom is building a one third scale demonstrator as a precursor to the overture, a seventy five seat mach two point two airliner it hopes will begin service later this decade. Senior Editor Guy North provides exclusive details about the boom project and a cover story that will appear in the June twenty nine edition of Aviation, week and space technology. He joins us here from Los Angeles so guy. What's the story? Joe, yeah well. It was It's been fascinating of course this whole idea of the renaissance, supersonic travel and You know we talked to area of course a couple of months ago and did a pretty good story about that evolving design We've seen that NASTAS X fifty nine low boom demonstrator is being assembled by Lockheed Martin right now in the skunkworks, so there's a lot of activity, but it goes. Boom boom, supersonic based in Colorado has been working for several years now on a design, which as you mentioned called the overture, and it's getting to the point now where the XP one demonstrator is kind of ready getting ready for prime time so that looking at rolling out this summer and putting into flight test next year. I should say by the way it's taken a lot longer than they or anybody else thought, but you know they're working their way through it and getting their. So how does the XP one demonstrator help with the development of the overture? Roy well good question in fact strangely enough. That's question number one that I put to Blake Shoal. WHO's the CEO of of boom and so I guess why not just let him tell us exactly what he told me. Right so the way XP one is it? Is it approving in flight? The key technologies we need sustainable, safe, economical, supersonic flight, and it had that you principally Amex materials and befall Trent, so using the statement of carbon fibre system that we would use them on overture, using the same design techniques where your ally in simulation of getting all the calibration day. in-flight Shit exactly how your models performed the real world, and then a similar approaches to high efficiency who supersonic intakes they can big difference, overall performance and it's. It's really important. You do this in hardware. Just in the wind tunnel installation because when you do when you do concept studies. Near you're not forced to solve all the problems. You can leave little bits of things. It unfinished assumed we get get the rest of the way there, but sometimes the last ten percent of work is ninety percent of the innovation really happens. Now of course, the the thing about the demonstrator is that it's also beginning to kickstart the supply chain as well a loads by and large a supply chain. That's probably going to be quite different when the when the production version comes out but I think one of the things that really is interesting is the fact that that's The supply chain is very interested in supersonics and getting more so particularly as they finding pressure from the classic at bussing, Boeing supply chains way, you know Boeing an episode of having their issues, so supply China's looking for other outlets and other avenues. And of course, one of the key parts that supply China's the engine. Nobody's going to go anyway without without a good engine boom on at the point yet of being up to say particularly where they all with that and where the selections but. In, this question, I asked I asked bike. You know what the situation was, so this is what he had to say about. This supply China on propulsion. And when we started bill six years ago, frankly people thought we were crazy and It was the this was a thing. That was some bad idea. An audible and that's that's that's really changed, and you see across the industry of writing efforts. Supersonics were credible. And when that? When that starts to get internalized the supply chain people. Stop thinking like well. Is this worth doing. Back out instead they start thinking what if this happens part of it? At that changes that really changes a lot of the conversations and if you are. A big piece of your business comes from widebody aircraft and the most profitable passengers during the wide bodies into supersonic. That, it's actually a bad thing if you don't have a supersonic

A. twelve was the CIA's predecessor to the airforce SR seventy one your listeners are probably more familiar with and it was designed to replace the U. two over the Soviet Union so we're coming up this summer on the sixty fourth anniversary of the year to use first overflight of the Soviet Union the fourth of July nineteen fifty six Herbie stock when was the highlight and Soviet radar had tracked that first over flight so it was only a matter of time before we've we feared and that the Soviets might shoot down thank you to which they did on the first of may nineteen sixty so already nineteen fifty six fifty seven president Eisenhower knows he has to have another option and the brilliant minds in our country told him we think if we fly a plane three miles higher than the you choose your to lower operational attitude altitude seventy thousand feet so so it's nineteen fifty seven we modify three miles higher and while we're at it five time almost five times faster we can beat the radar and I just think that's an extraordinary national strategic goal so by nineteen fifty nine the contract for the A. twelve oxcart what a misnomer that was was on the drawing board it was first tested in nineteen sixty two and it meant a design specifications I nineteen sixty five but by then the Soviet Union was being photographed from space by corona restored a reconnaissance satellite so the eight twelve didn't have a mission until thirty one may nineteen sixty seven when CIA pilot Malkovich.

Fcc said Yep it's great go forward with it whole lot of people have come out of the woodwork. To Go on Jack it is not okay. Do not go forward. And there's been a formal petitions against the FCC to reverse decision to allow llegado to go forward this is based upon blocking the GPS. Now it's going to be the normal people you would expect the airline pilots association who have a big interest and GPS working correctly and accurately and not having anything messing it. Up Association Equipment Manufacturers Aviation Interests The radium corporation Lockheed Martin Trimble. I mean antibody has anything to do with. Gps saying no. This is a really really bad idea but the really compelling bit here that may make the FCC think twice a hope is thirty two US senators which is over half and indifference. Bipartisan It's it's under heads. Sorry it's not it's it's a third I'm sorry A third of US senators which is when it by half ballpark. A half is is on from each party. So that's a bipartisan Thing sorry I misspoke I postseason. This is why we don't do math in front of people that's right So anyway they've come out and said no this is probably a bad idea so hopefully the FCC takes this all under advisement and reverses its. I'm going to terrible decision to allow. Continue for it. I would really like the the only way this gets really properly. Fixed is if Congress does what Congress is not probably going to do given the current crises. That's going on. Is they need to make legislation about this and that would be very clear guidance. Fcc A WHAT WOULD. It wouldn't be allowed but until then we run into the situation where the FCC can contain to make decisions and reverse decisions were versus sessions. And it's just a nightmare and in another. Us government News items this week The Department of Commerce Has Actually issued new rules for a commercial. Remote sensing satellites the Satellite Systems And in this case removing a lot of restrictions and so a lot of the the changes and it's it's They had a couple of drafts out. the current set are much more streamlined and they are lifting restrictions on not everything But especially on systems and types of data that could be sold elsewhere so outside the United States. So the argument is that others can do it then A of those restrictions are removed. There's still going to be some restrictions And they actually are setting up a tier system the full set of rules when we actually started according to I had seen published out yet but Essentially there are a lot of other obligations related. To remote sensing is stuff that that have to be still met so Some restrictions are in place but Essentially if you've got a system that is Only producing a on enhanced data. That is the same as unenhanced. Data available from sources that don't have Or not under the jurisdiction of Department Congress in the US so foreign sources will be called Tier One and they're actually going to have lots of restrictions changed however there's tier two and three and that has to do with systems that don't actually have any competition necessarily outside. The United States are outside of commerce purview. Meaning they're like well. If you're still competition that that would you know hurt you then yes we could still regulate you And so some of the questions that came up with things. Sar Data Nighttime data I think certain types of infrared in and stuff that had been heavily restricted. And the other thing that's going to change is how long the restrictions when there are restrictions a can go for which I guess you The original two thousand six Regulations had Basically just said they stay until new regulations are legislation. Come along. I think the new set of rules actually has a time period. I think two to three years. Something like that where potential they can review those So if you want the full text sort of the full details There's a couple of links the show nuts to one of the articles that discuss this But I mean you know. There was a lot of excitement Around when this was announced but The full rule set still has some things that will restrict. It's not it's not. Let the wild west of by any means but A lot of that restriction that that was there at least for existing systems and systems that do sort of traditional stuff is now going to be a little bit easier to deal with.

"Lockheed Martin your mission is ours Dr Michael Osterholm is a professor of public health and as the director of the center for infectious disease research and policy at the university of Minnesota he is the author of the two thousand seventeen book deadliest enemy our war against killer germs in which he not only details the most pressing infectious disease threats of our day lays out a nine point strategy on how to address them we just sat down with doctor foster home to talk about the likely road ahead for code nineteen hi Michael morale and this is intelligence matters doctor foster home welcome to intelligence matters it is great to have you your arch I'd love to start with a paper that your institute published on April thirty S. titled the future of the code nineteen pandemic lessons learned from pandemic influenza why did you choose to look for lessons in past influenza pandemics rather than in past corona virus outbreaks we're actually several reasons for why we did this I number one is let's just take rotavirus is in general and family program which is which of course the sars colleagues who is one member it turns out that the two models that we have look at in the past of coronaviruses are ones of a seasonal type virus ones typically cause the common cold R. or in one instance it can cause some good morning and those are in fact seasonal and not one that is all mimics what we're seeing with the current providers the second model is the sars murders this a severity were hard hard trust under which first emerged in China in the fall two thousand two made its way out of China and this from around the world merge which emerged in two thousand twelve on the Arabian peninsula has continued to be a problem in that area with humans in both instances those issues are very different number one is while the sars disappeared it from you might say temporarily at least we hope internalization problems because we recognize what the L. rose or was with the source of the virus in the markets in the long term problems and those relating to then humans it turned out were really most infectious in day five six or seven other elements not earlier and so once we understood that we can identify potentially infected individuals isolate them and really bring transmission to zero and that officially resulted in the elimination of stars as we know it merge a bit more complicated because that virus actually is in dromedary camels no one is going to put down candles and so the virus continues to endurance on the Arabian peninsula but again like sars one is not infectious really tell their six day and so by early identification of patients with my slated in again stop ongoing transmission with the virus we're dealing with now the stars will be true it has taken nine hundred properties in Poland one is likely most infections before onset of symptoms and maybe end of the first day or two of the elements and that is very much like flew in that regard and that you're not going to stop with the same way you would mergers or stars because that is not later transmission the way that it yeah begin transmission lu Han who had problems it was very much like influenza we have a relatively high transmission of anyone infected individuals to others and so we immediately begin to think of like importance based on that concept model our group actually called it on January twentieth and said that this is likely going to be a worldwide pandemic that the the transmission be very much like influenza and then by late February early March you'd seen around the world and of course that's exactly how it unfolded but our point where the questions will be like previous influenza pandemics going forward as a corona virus are and that's where the paper that we published from our center was really all about it was us saying if there's like an influenza pandemic we would expect to see activity around the world attention this first wave it be sporadic meeting with her in some locations but others are in some of the locations at your current could be serious like we saw in New York and up but it's a like you know we but that wouldn't hurt white and unfortunately so far this virus has been acting like that and so we surely consider the possibility that it might be in there for over the summer actually began to become much less of a problem receive an influenza pandemic within this large waves of what are her five to six months or later after introduction and that's we worry about that we added to other models and if it's not informs us what might look like and and we said what if it's just a whole series of kind of smaller operation just keep occurring over and over again or that it is viruses just in slow burn but the key underlying feature all these models are scenarios is that we are currently in this country somewhere between five to twenty percent of the population are infected only a very few locations isn't as high as twenty percent like New York most of the countries five percent for this fire should always call her immunity when is enough transmission in the population with people becoming infected and developing we hold is long term immunity we don't know that yet it takes sixty to seventy percent of the population that happened before virus transmission will slow down now we can get there also my vaccine but I think numbers at this point are going to make that assumption at least for the next twelve months we're going to have a vaccine so doctors are the total number of deaths roughly the same in your three scenarios and do you all have a sense of what that total is gonna look like by the time we get to the end of this thing well I think you are the first thing to do is just out of perspective for those who may doubt that this is a surge channel when you think about it in the last hundred years this virus is done something that no other disease has done since nineteen eighteen and the major swine flu pandemic of eighteen nineteen point some sixty five days ago this virus illness over nineteen we're not even the top hundred closes out this country within short order it became the number one cause of death in this country notice uses it down this is this is remarkable and so yes of the outside we have to understand this is a real problem in terms of how we get to that sixty or seventy percent as I mentioned a moment ago have a vaccine that can short cut you need to that number and higher with the vaccine obviously we're going to reduce the number of cases or deaths but if not we have to anticipate that those sixty to seventy percent of people will include R. one yes need to know how many right now we're seeing increased number of deaths particularly in we call people at high risk corrugated meaning underlying heart disease kidney disease certain blood cancers certain lung cancers and of course being all the rage and then one that is more unique to the United States than it was for example China is abusive all of these play a role in what the actual mortality rate is you know how many people die from this fire you'll see lots of debates about is up one percent or point one percent whatever none of us know I can only say that if you look at just a population of the United States and saying oh three hundred thirty million people there was a fifty percent get infected which is lower than actually heard unity you know you're not talking about one hundred and sixty five million people that's a lot of action if you looked at that population and just take what we have now for understanding the clinical disease major data combined from China from what we saw in Europe and what we see in the United States today not eighty percent of those people will actually have very mild hardly noticeable bills if the remaining twenty percent of that hundred and sixty five million if you look at that about ten percent will seek medical care but not need hospitalization about ten percent will happen that will need hospitalization so now you're talking about you know sixteen point five million people of that five percent it will need doctors hospitalization but intensive care medicine of that anywhere from one half percentage one percent will die we're basically somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred thousand to about one point six million people.

Stimulating Simulator Stories

"Never had the three of us. Sit Down and nerd out about about flight simulation. Yeah I mean. It's one of the things that I think is a gateway drug for a lot of people I mean when you're a kid with a computer and You know you're looking for some gaming or some you know something cool to do. I mean flight Sims I think are are I think are as much a part of getting you know. Young people into Navy model airplanes were and still are. Yeah I I agree and you guys of no my My background priority. I spent eleven years at Microsoft working on the flight simulator series there subsequently got some weird biases and things but I was also been a lifelong user of Sims first. Ibm either came home. We bought the first First version one point. Oh flights them week that When that came out and I was. I was twelve going on thirteen when that happened. And here I am D- decades and decades later and I still enjoy them and it's It it's one of those things that it. It's not only refund from the aviation side but it's also to me always been interesting from the technology side to take these computers that we have on our desks in in our pockets and our briefcases and see what what they can do. Yeah I wouldn't ask you when you went to work at Microsoft was that Was that pretty cool? I mean going to work for a product that you Kinda knew already and had a you know certainly had a name for itself. I sent my wife An email and our into my first day because I've been at Microsoft a two or three years closer to four years actually for if I move to that team and I sent this email to her and it just said I am a pig. My job is slop never get there? That was back in ninety eight So got to work on some patches and supposedly stuff for flights to ninety eight then we rolled right into combat flights him in for the next several years. Sort of back and forth from combat. Flight Sim then back to the civilian one based on releases Worked as a test engineer which was really cool. It came from product support. Which meant you had to sit on the phone and try to help somebody solve a problem and then I switched to testing which just meant. You really didn't care about the solution. You just had to point out the problems and I'm good at that. I'm really judgmental. I'm picky but it can be a real jerk so So that was that was fantastic and worked from. He said the tail end of flights in ninety eight all the way through the last of FSX and a what we call DSP. What you now know is prepared by Lockheed Martin so yeah Great Times Yeah I think When I was a kid my parents had I think it was an IBM forty six In the early nineties and I only game that was on. That computer was gosh. She could help me with this. How was probably F S for? It was still wire frame graphics and it had the airplane Creator in the in the Red Baron combat similar. Oh sure yeah. So the yeah. They're the red baron was That was there from the very very beginning. You know the wire frame stuff. F S Four. That had the airplane creator. Had WHAT WE CALL IT? Sort of flat shading it was sort wire frame. It could support up to like sixteen colors of Aga time too so just starting to transition into something that was Sort of optionally wire frame or you can have some solid colors into it. Yeah that so. I always wonder how much that actually played into. You know I think. All three of us You know we say as far back as we remember we were airplane parts and I mean how your origin stories pretty obvious you know growing up at an airport But I think for my for me that that may definitely be a big part of that. I remember getting My my first flights actually wasn't regular flights him. It was combat flight simulator. And it was like you in Europe. He was European theater. Okay so that was the first one. Just yes he. F S One. Yeah Oh man. That was awesome like I remember. We downloaded that or loaded onto the computer and then a couple of buddies over and like we literally played that until like two in the morning and Just you know you died. It's my turn but What was he was the two guys that were with me? They weren't diehard airplane nuts. They thought this was like totally cool. And nobody had seen anything. Quite like that So it was really kind of interesting way to get someone. Maybe not a history buff. Not a Warburg buff but suddenly you know they were kinda rattling stuff off like oh no man you gotta go with the P fifty one you know and I'm like how you know. How do you know what is it was kind of interesting? Well you know. I think it's you know it confirms what we have said at least in private conversations time and time again that simulators almost any kind like this can. They can teach you know they can. Inspire people didn't get people excited about it. But you know before long. You're you're actually learning

"Lockheed Martin. Yeah. And treatment, the American soldier in the sixties and seventies and eighties compared to today is completely different. No question today. I mean, there's great respect even Democrats love American soldiers today in the sixty seventies and eighties that was not the case, but things have flipped around completely, and would you agree? I pray to God will we don't go to war with Iran, and send how, how many American soldiers to die in Iran. That would be a disaster. Yeah. What I live in a small town. And I go to the grocery store where, where am I gear you know, get thanks this service? I get I get that every time it's wonderful. What most of us have done that most of our lives, some others didn't because they wanted to attack the American soldier to take political advantage, but, but we'll, thanks for your service, and I it's, it's incredible. Imagine the world without the American soldier, he magin World War, Two without the Americans imagine at least we saved half a Korea all create would look like North Korea. But for the American soldier, the American soldiers in historical stainless. Character that that is always one battles and wars and the politicians don't let them win the victory, whether it was career Vietnam or Iraq. Oh, we have to be so careful with rules of engagement. They are I then we have to be careful what we do know the country, puts up with this kind of crap, but American soldiers have to be so careful everything they do. They'll be second. Guessed some of the movies indicate that American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan could not do what should have been done in war in battle for fearing what would happen on the pages of the New York Times are being sued by somebody Mark Latrell and others. It's really sad. To think what they have to go through to be careful. No other enemy we have as careful and I don't know all the facts of Trump who wants to pardon some Iraqi, and Afghan American soldiers working for us who are charged with war crimes, so to speak or doing things that are wrong. I don't know all the particulars, but I would lean toward the idea of giving the American. Soldier a break for what they had to go through in Iraq and Afghanistan, we didn't know who the hell you refining, who are who's the enemy, who's our, buddy who's our friend and it's sad. But the left is attacking Trump now for possibly pardoning so-called war criminals. Many of whom have spent years in prison for doing something wrong in Iraq or Afghanistan, so liberal, as some have said, liberalism, my friend, Michael Savage. Liberal liberalism is a mental illness. Something is wrong something is wrong, when you don't care about unborn babies something is wrong when the mass of lawlessness on the southern border means nothing to you. In fact, each to being courage, something is wrong with you. If you think the cities and states who will not enforce federal immigration law. Meaning they're in rebellion against the federal government or doing what's right something's wrong about that. The Democrats in South Carolina in eighteen sixty one seceded from the union because they didn't want to. Follow federal law. We have three hundred American cities counties and states now not following federal law. In fact, there in rebellion against the federal government and the media doesn't picture it as such when clearly, it is. Let's continue with your calls. If line becomes available. Eight six six six four seven seven three three seven coming up in about thirty five minutes or so. We'll be Kevin Jackson of the black sphere in Saint Louis. Also in about.

"Reporting on where the White House hopes find the money and the logistics is Washington space industry were reporter Christian Davenport spoke with komo's Taylor van Cise this year, you know, better than most marks fifty years since the first moon landing and the Apollo program cost a couple of dozen billion dollars in nineteen sixties money. Is there a ballpark cost for a moon mission in two thousand twenty four? Well, we haven't heard the entire costs for it. And they're going after fairly substantial Arcus architecture to do it. This isn't like Apollo where they want to send astronauts right to the surface to stay for a day or two and then come back. They're talking about, you know, a bigger system of putting an orbiting outpost called the gateway in the vicinity of the moon. That's gonna take a lot more time in a lot more resources. But what we do know is that since vice president move the timeline of that up dramatically from having humans land in twenty twenty eight to now twenty. Twenty four one of the big questions has been what is it going to cost and we got a glimpse of that yesterday when the White House put in a special budget amendment to the congress asking for an additional one point six billion for next year. But what will cost in the future? We don't know yet. And you write that one point six billion is gonna come out of Pell grant money surplus Pell grant money meant to help college students, though is there enough extra to make a dent in a moon mission budget. Well, you know, a lot of people will say one point six billion is not nearly enough for what you need. But what the national Minister Jim Breitenstein said yesterday was, you know, hey, look, this is a good start. This will get us going on this gets us out of the gates too. You know, what we need to do? And they need money for their big rocket known at the space launch system the Orion spacecraft. They need money to start the development of lunar Lander that would get about a billion dollars in Washington, this Washington DC their political questions, and if they came they were I think there was some concern in the White House if they came to. Congress asking for billions upon billions of dollars. They would have been laughed off the hill. And so they had to find something that gets them going. But on the other hand is also feasible which is always the balancing act here in Washington. The US still working to get astronauts to the international space station without the help of Russia. Does a moon mission help for her to think? You know, at this point they're separate efforts. But it's interesting to think here we are talking about sending humans to the surface of the moon, and we do not today have the capability of sending astronauts, anywhere, frankly and NASA has not had the ability to fly anyone to space since the spatial retired in two thousand eleven now. Boeing and SpaceX are the two companies under contract from NASA to build spacecraft capable of flying. Nasa, astronauts to the international space station, and it looks like you know, those first flights. I think are still scheduled for late this year. But it looks like that may happen sometime. Next year would be surprised if NASA farmed out the the land or effort to blue origin or SpaceX to land in the sea of tranquility or wherever else they choose on the moon. Well, one of the things that NASA has been very clear about from the beginning. It's on this sort of crash program to get to the moon to do it within five years that they're going to need everyone. They're going to need their international partners. They're going to need commercial industry really to step up. And you know, I think it was. Interesting that last week a week before the White House comes out with its supplemental. Request. You had Jeff Bezos here in DC. He's the founder of blue origin. And the owner I should note of the Washington Post where I work and they made their pitch to build a lunar Lander that they call blue moon, but they're just one of many companies Boeing Lockheed Martin the Sierra Nevada corporation that want to have, you know, some part in building this outpost known as the as the gateway Christian Devonport with as he covers the space industry for the Washington.

And I've been doing that as the head of North America for cyber lapse since the beginning of twenty sixty nice that that kind of raises the question how is it to to sail in a world where cybersecurity where many people like to fly under the radar will they do. And they want us to -sarily tell you their issues they won't necessarily reveal their exploits in the electric utility industry. For example, there's a threaten information sharing group Lockheed Martin my alma mater that acquired this company called industrial part of lackey runs threatening nation sharing. But some of us classified some of this government entities. Call us gift, you know, secure of mission center. That can't be penetrated. So in under a close setting companies sometime exchange threat information, but a lot of the time you're done commercially. And in the company snow, they need something. And they will write in our piece sometimes for some advice on what should be in it. But they want to tell you about the specific events day that they'll tell you about the kind of needs day of the aspects that they wanna monitor for. So you can it's kind of like a diagnosing car, maybe on the on the symptoms opposed to exactly you know, what caused a flat tire, bad example. But you know, what? I mean, it's you can deal with what they're trying to accomplish like fix the tire in ways at that address the need, but without Michelle disclosing that they were trespassing driving broken glass when the timer.

"And for both of these statutes what you have to do is divert the funds away from other projects thirty three USC twenty two ninety three is more clear on this. And I am so I'm going to read a little bit more of it. It says in the event of a declaration by the president of national emergency that requires or may require use of the armed forces. So broader language there. The secretary may one terminate or deferred the construction operation maintenance or repair of any civil works projects that he deemed not essential to. To infrastructure week. Yup. And to apply the resources of that civil works program, including funds personnel and equipment to constructor assist in the construction operation maintenance and repair of authorized civil works. That are essential to the national defense. That's where so we sort of built up from weakest argument to strongest argument, that's where President Trump will go if he declares a national state of emergency. He will go to thirty three USC twenty two ninety three. He will say it is a national emergency that requires or may require use of the armed forces. And that the construction of the wall is quote essential to the national defense and courts should defer to the president in interpreting what the national defense means. And here are the five billion dollars in military projects that we are shifting funds away from. If that happens as a as a result of that you will have. Military, contractors and employees who are terminated. Who? Will then have standing to challenge this action under the term? They'd be terminated. Because if because you've directed the funds whatever they took away from your saying they have to. So you ask the exact right question. Right. Which is you can't manufacture the five billion dollars out of thin air. But there are existing defense. Authorizations this provision allows you to terminate those authorizations. Can you come up with five billion dollars worth of constructing new basis new munitions new equipment easily? Yeah. I I would think you could. But you're gonna wanna do it in such a way that doesn't take five billion dollars out of General Dynamics pocket right out of Lockheed Martin because those companies are not going to be like taking it away from you know, John Q public, you know, landowner on the border. They will sue they will bring, you know, their army of high priced lawyers into court, and you know, and we will all be rooting for Lockheed Martin in court. I know I was just thinking this is giving this is so frustrating because it pits us between two, you know. I don't wanna have to be on the side of Ono every dollar that the Pentagon is currently spending is critical. He can't direct any money away from the national and. That's not right. So I don't know. No. It's it it puts you in a tough spot. But but that's where we would be headed. If the president declares a a national state of emergency.
