"I'm really happy to welcome back to the podcast, Michael Reagan, who was the eldest son of former president Ronald Reagan, Michael Reagan is debated Mikhail Gorbachev. He's I didn't know this set world records in powerboat racing. I do know that he was for two decades a conservative radio talk show host heard across the country on syndicated networks, and he is now the chairman and president of the Reagan legacy foundation. Michael, welcome what a pleasure. You know, just yesterday, that'd be my wife was reading from your dad's D-Day speech on the anniversary of D-Day. And she literally was almost bursting into tears as she was reading it. And your dad had that kind of an impact on people, which is almost unthinkable in politics today. Is it just because it was a different era or do you think there was something about your dad that brought out that kind of a deeply resonant response in people? Because it was in his heart. It wasn't just a speech, it was actually in his heart. And you know, I tell politicians who asked me about my father. I said, it's not about hearing your speech. It's about feeling your speech. And with my father's speeches, you really felt them. That's why you can listen today to the point to hot speech and you will cry at the right time. Every time, because it's so heartfelt, why my father remember my father was the first president to actually go to Normandy and speak on D-Day, the 40th anniversary. And every president since then has gone on a D-Day and spoken on a D-Day, followed suit of Ronald Reagan, but nobody, nobody makes you feel the speech like my father

"For over 40 years the United States organized a massive effort to contain an expansive totalitarian communist government, the Soviet Union. Throughout that time, the world lived under the specter of nuclear annihilation. But by the end of the 1980s, the world was changing in profound and unexpected ways. The Soviet Union did not seem to be the same menacing presence it once was. Its leader Mikhail Gorbachev was opening up Soviet society, introducing new freedoms never known in that country. Soviet nations in Eastern Europe began asserting their independence. In China, a growing number of students began demanding a greater respect for their rights. Many in the west looked around the world with a sense of optimism, not known since the end of World War II. It was in this setting that George H. W. Bush took the oath of office as the 41st president of the United States. In this speech, his inaugural address notice how he articulates his hopes for a new world. One in which freedom would flourish and tyranny would be a thing of the past. Some may view bush's words as signs of naivete, especially when we think of the persistence of tyranny well past his presidency. While this may be a valid claim, bush's optimism is a window into the monumental changes that were occurring as the 1980s came to a close. Although George Bush was not known for his rhetorical excellence. He was able to convey a hopeful vision for a world.

"It's a victory for the moral force of our values. Bush paid tribute to the American people and his predecessors in the Oval Office, who are part of the effort to contain communism. Every American can take pride in this victory from the millions of men and women who have served our country in uniform, to millions of Americans who supported their country and a strong defense under 9 presidents. He also paid tribute to his counterpart, who had just left power in the Kremlin. I'd like to express on behalf of the American people, my gratitude to Mikhail Gorbachev for years of sustained commitment to world peace and for his intellect, vision, and courage. I spoke with Mikhail Gorbachev this morning. We reviewed the many accomplishments of the past few years, and spoke of hope for the future. Mikhail Gorbachev's revolutionary policies transformed the Soviet Union. His policies permitted the peoples of Russia and the other republics to cast aside decades of oppression and establish the foundations of freedom. His legacy guarantees him an honored place in history and provides a solid basis for the United States to work in equally constructive ways with his successors. Bush then pondered the unlikely path that had led to that moment. We stand tonight before a new world of hope and possibilities for our children, a world we could not have contemplated a few years ago. But then he laid out a vision with an eye towards a bright future. This is a day of great hope for all Americans. Our enemies have become our partners. Committed to building democratic and civil societies. They ask for our support, and we will give it to them. We will do it because as Americans, we can do no less. For our children, we must offer them the guarantee of a peaceful and prosperous future, a future grounded in a world built on strong democratic principles free from the specter of global conflict. May God bless the people of the new nations in the Commonwealth of Independent States, and on this special day of peace on earth, good will toward men, may God continue to bless the United States of America. Goodnight. Bush would not be able to enjoy his moment in the sun for long. It's often said that few things are as fleeting as political power. Although Bush had enjoyed approval ratings that were near 90% during and after the Persian Gulf War, he was fighting for his political life by January of 1992. Despite the triumph of American values and the demise of communism at the end of the Cold War, voters were now focused on something else. The economy. It was almost as if the end of communism didn't really matter anymore. In his 1992 reelection campaign, bush struggled to find a message that resonated with the American people. He had lost the support of many conservatives within his own party. After making a deal with Democrats to raise taxes. The national debt had increased on his watch. With the threat of an economic recession imminent, and the lack of an international threat to guide bush's policies..

"In October of 1986, president Ronald Reagan met with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavík Iceland, to find ways to reduce the threat of nuclear war. Although they seem to be on the verge of signing a historic treaty to eliminate a large number of nuclear weapons, the talks stumbled over one major issue. The strategic defense initiative or SDI. It was Reagan's proposal to build an impenetrable shield that would render nuclear weapons obsolete. Critics believe that sdi was an absurd, unrealistic idea, and chastised Reagan for allowing it to scuttle the first real chance in nuclear arms reductions. Reagan two was frustrated. He felt that STI held the key to a world safe from nuclear arms, and yet Gorbachev opposed it. In this speech, delivered immediately after he returned from Reykjavík, Reagan explained the results of the summit to the American people, and why he refused to budge on SDI. As I listened to this speech, I felt a sense that Reagan wanted the American people to feel like, as he said, full participants with him at the conference. He wanted them to feel like they were all on the same team. In that sense, the speech has the same feel as FDR's intimate fireside chats about half a century earlier. Chats that Reagan himself listened to as a young man. It's a good example of Reagan living up to his reputation as.

They lie about everything so one agent said, according to the story said, Yeah, these are all KGB families out here.

Talks with the Kremlin aimed at replacing an expiring weapons treaty with a modern and potentially three way accord that brings China into the fold senior administration officials say trump's willingness to leave the open skies treaty is evidence of how prominently arms control. Verification and compliance will feature in the new talks the open skies treaty that governs the unarmed overflights was initially set up to promote trust and divert conflict between the US and Russia. The trump administration informed other members of the treaty that the US plans to pull out in six months which is after the presidential election. The White House also says that imagery collected during the flights can be obtained quickly at less cost from US or commercial satellites the US announcement that it plans to leave.

good evening to you why did garbage chaff why did the Soviets abuse Baku an ancient and important capital in the south Caucasus good evening to you good evening to you well Mr garbage house was angered hurt and insulted by the Azeri's and specifically by the person who had headed the that cagey beaten Azerbaijan and then headed up by the government of Azerbaijan and then went on to a distinguished career in Moscow on but what it became the third most powerful figure in the Soviet Union why was coverage of angry at him because he was angry at a whole group of local leaders around the USSR who were asserting the rights and do that and traditions and cultures of their of their native lands hi hello yes god Leah who was the key figure and they and Azerbaijan he got fired and nineteen nineteen in eighty seven and he and and but still angry at him so then we have December twenty second of eighty nine we have the Berlin Wall falling and you and you have suddenly Azerbaijan's neighbor Armenia making claims against territory which had been part of the of Azerbaijan for the news throughout Soviet times this created a situation not unlike what existed between India and Pakistan after the partition of mobs in both countries attacking people of the other country who happen to live on their territory so that the back background what happens specifically leading up to the to the massacre of of twenty January is that as you said the Red Army was in it in present in force around Baku there were fights taking place you can call them part groans just as there were backgrounds taking place on the Armenian side but the economy the Red Army did nothing initially only one order finally came from Mr Garber chest himself did did they act and of course a hundred and seventy people were killed and another eight hundred in injured the next day immediately there were million people out on the streets this symbolized and and and marked the end of communist rule in Azerbaijan but as I know it that and and you can say this was one of the key moments in the overall collapse of the USSR no wonder that garbage at himself said this was the greatest mistake of my career it was in it was a brutal mistake it's just thirty years frat and yet I did not have this background story when I first arrived in Baku two years ago and I've been there several times you've been there many times there the it is it is a phenomena then what's happened since then in thirty years this is a modern capital with without a with a booming economy and surging consumerism how we measure an economy you would never know that it'd been abused I was told the story of how when the Soviets pulled out another was after this massacre they were left with nothing a broken country without resources and they build it themselves well it only took them thirty years it's a miracle it is impressive what they've done that I'm back is by any measure one of the great and very very attractive modern cities however they did have the at bat it they did have the advantage of a of oil I heard and remember the contract of the century that enable that oil to get to Europe hi but beyond that they had a and a population that was absolutely committed to the to building a new nation this is it Azerbaijan it briefly been independent after World War one and was smashed by the Soviet Union so there was the wheels to build something new and build better and they did in remembering the black January the January twentieth and the victims and all of that that it's become a way of Azerbaijan remembering how hard it's worked as the way I take this now look what we've done and we remember our roots much the same way we remember early conflicts like the Boston massacre that led to the creation of the Continental Congress in other words there the shot heard round the world and Lexington yes indeed hi but beyond that I think they're they're what we tend to lose sight of is that there was a growing and deepening spirit of national identity religious identity cultural identity muse cleverly you name it all over the former Soviet Union all of whom were rebelling against the concept which was the Soviet concept of a of a merging of nations so when we look at the world today where we have many people asserting identity again we should learn very soberly we should learn from the experience of the Soviet Union which pushed it super national analogy if you will also be at identity down based people's throats and they rebelled and eventually overthrew the USSR out Fred we're at the edge of a vote a parliamentary vote and I'm going to be an Azerbaijan about cool for the parliamentary vote I take it this is a way of signaling that Azerbaijan is now moving sophisticated Lee into the world of democratic politics and also feels confident enough in a rough neighborhood to to stand for you know competing parties is that a way to take this well I it certainly is a step in that direction it has been a very controlled system very powerful role for the president and certainly mind minority parties and have suffered and had a difficult time but there is a wave of reform taking place across Central Asia and the Caucasus and it can be seen also in in in Armenia neighboring Armenia and it can be seen and especially in those back a stand but also in

Chris Farrell of judicial watch Victoria Toensing judge otherwise. but the enormity of the situation is still not well gross. and that is why I devote a whole chapter of my new book the war for America's soul too exactly this question let's put it into context first what do we know about the so called scandal free Obama administration we know that the administration school the federal government as a political tool of the DNC and Obama. from the use of the National Park Service during a government shutdown to intimidate of veterans to the use of the I. R. S. to stymie to block applications for non profit status by any organization that had the name patriot will tea party in their name. on the and on and on there was a simple calculation we control the federal government and we can use it for what ever we wish to do. and that is how we arrived at obamacare. remember at the beginning when the real estate mogul from queens came down those golden escalators nobody took him seriously. but then he started to gain traction. the billionaire from Manhattan connected with the American people especially with disenfranchise Democrat voters who had lost their jobs we'll see in the economy is the work to be outsourced to China and elsewhere in the last thirty years. one off another the establishment rhino candidates fell by the wayside until Donald Trump was left hello. this is where some things have to be done. there are of course villains and there are heroes in this story. villains of people like John Brennan. bomb is former CIA director general class. director of the National Security Agency and James comi James co me the director of the FBI who in a very peculiar thirteen minute press conference proceeded to say how many times Hillary Clinton the democratic candidate for president had committed a felony by her illegal on secure handling of top secret emails on her private homebrew server but then spent the last minute of his press conference doing what. surrendering to the fact that he thought she would be his next boss and then exonerating her. so this is corruption at the highest levels of the last administration. but there is a hero and that heroes of will Mike roaches former director of the National Security Agency during the presidential campaign realize that something was afoot that his gargantuan intelligence database that can basically intercept any electronic communications in the world was being tapped illegally the contract is not government employees contract is. I had to. repeatedly accessed via database with out did you authorize ation permissions. he decided without telling his then boss president Obama. that he must inform president elect trump and he traveled to trump tower to inform the future president of what was occurring. that is the first giant piece of the puzzle. second is the FISA scandal foreign intelligence surveillance act the FISA court is a secret court created off to the Nixon administration that is the place government agencies go with relevant information for probable cause to obtain warrants to spy on American citizens. the FISA gold fits into this story because of a foreign intelligence agent a former MI six operator cold Christopher steel who had been hired by the Democrat party then by Hillary's campaign to put together a so called dossier of compromising information about Donald Trump. this dossier was sourced from his contacts in the contacts in Russia it was fallacious it was fictitious but it was funneled to the FBI and the department of justice under president Obama at which point over the signature of senior officials including the former department of justice deputy Attorney General rob Rosenstein vat opposition research that propaganda material was used to acquire warrants to spy on the trump campaign including on Carter page. this was exacerbated by what damn bone Gino. has called the two step rule. once the Obama administration had the authority to spy on one person inside an organization they could basically spy on anyone why because if you emailed that individual if you had a chat with them on the phone then you would be caught in the massive interception that that is the NSA's surveillance system. all they needed was one warrant and so it began for the first time in American history pull the might of the US intelligence community the most powerful intelligence apparatus in the world was deployed against a presidential campaign for political purposes now we have a new Attorney General called William Barr who has unleashed the Connecticut US attorney and we are only beginning to find out the depths of the corruption from Brandon clapper.

Why Werner Herzog loves cat videos
"Today on studio. Three sixty what energizes the legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog sometimes when I don't know how to order my thoughts, I switched on crazy cat videos and immediately. I'm rejuvenated. We talk a lot about cat videos, the art of narration and his latest movie meeting. Gorbachev. Plus from the first time you heard this song, it was just absolutely mind. Melting. The story behind when doves cry, which prints released prepare to feel old thirty five years ago this week. This is what it sounds like the head on studio. Three sixty right after this. This is scheduled for sixty I'm currently at I'm sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial this first level of guard this Thomas Jefferson's vegetable, I'd like to have the roasted chicken very well done, editing is all about timing. I tried to get a little bit away from the actual subject must get sick of your place, right? Three, sixty with good Anderson. Werner Herzog has made more than sixty movies. They're often about man versus extreme forces, the Amazon jungle in FitzGerald. Oh, active volcanoes in the documentary into the inferno. His latest film meeting, Gorbachev also fits into that frame. It's the story of Mikhail. Gorbachev versus a crumbling political and economic system. Food consensus, Kevin over a six month period last year and the year before Hertzog went to Moscow and interview the very last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Sekkei bitch. I'm sermon. And the first term and that you probably met wanted to kill you. Hertzog and a co director Andre singer, combined interviews with lots of archival footage to tell the story of the one Soviet leader almost everybody in America, and the west light even adored, and the film is all held together by Herzog signature narration here. His home village is it looks today. It is hard to imagine that from such a godforsaken place in the middle of nowhere, one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century emerged. And when Hertzog is here with me now to talk about meeting Gorbachev, sir. Welcome back to studio. Three six eight thank you. Thank you for having me. So you feel three long conversations with Gorbachev. How did you prepare for those mostly reading I did a lot of homework? I read compensates memoirs Rhoda most excellent biography by William helpmann. Otherwise, I arrived without pain, my hands. I didn't have a catalog of Chris that would rectal down. It was just a conversation from men to men carried on by curiosity. Wave. I was gonna lead me or us. Was unknown the film talks about how Gorbachev is beloved and considered a hero by many Germans, and obviously being a German, a west German at the time, you must have paid keen attention to the Soviet Union at that moment. Sure. And among other things when Germans reunification were somehow abandoned, give him up the real real big thing, about reunification, these it came without bloodshed. It came without violence. Gorbachev allowed peacefully his predecessors would send tanks in and, and suppress the liberation movements of countries like Hungary Poland is terminal. You just name, it chuckle Slovakia, take a Slovak, yo cyst that was attitude of the Soviet Ryan and Gorbachev completely different in his approach and is in west Germany had been separate countries. For essentially your entire life. It just must have seend being a forty odd year old man, having never known anything else impossible that this was never going to happen. Yes, I personally believed I would not see during my lifetime something of that magnitude would take much more time history would be slow, but I was surprised. And when the wall came down in Idi nine and reunification happens, as you say, in the film. So quickly crazily quickly. What was your feeling when I heard about the wall coming down? I was in the southern tip of South America, a mountain, and with five days delay through shortwave radio hurt that the won't had come down, and it's this kind of joy in the shadow of elation, his never left me, I was pleased, given the seriousness of the subject by the touches of humor in this film, like. When they're cutting down ceremonially cutting down the barbed wire between Austria, Hungary, and spend a long time showing this bit of the Austrian nightly news that night I'm going to play that clip. Busy plea for the entire world. I n curtain started to be lifted. However, Austrian evening news was curious about the magnitude of the event retail two minutes. I didn't really metric their lead story was about slugs. It's very funny because they advise you to fill up old with beer in slugs, as lovers of beer would crawl it get drunk and you could harvest them in the morning, then on the miscellaneous much later. So the anchorwoman comes to mention that I am curtain. Being lifted. So it points to that sometimes news completely clueless. In other news, the Cold War is over. Yes. Yes. Do you feel as though humor is, is central to your sensibility, as a filmmaker as a creator, I think this human almost all of my films, and I've been labelled as grim teutonic sort of God knows warrior who, who is determined to risk his life in all all this, all this kind of nonsense. So what you spot it is. There's a lot of human gover of, of course, a lot of human other films. I wanna talk more about your narration, and how you do it. Do you begin with some rough draft? Or do you make the film? I know I the Nori I write the take spontaneously during editing and I know here heft to explain something and I write it down. On incessantly and in the editing room. I have very professional microphone, and I speak the commentaries. Right, then and there while I'm proceeding and sometimes I notice the texts overlaps into the next scene. It's three seconds too long. So I would delete one or two words and rephrase it a little bit in speak again and it would fit. That's amazing. So literally, as you are cutting scenes together, you're coming up with the necessary narration, and recording simultaneous. Yes. Exactly. Is that what I do that extrordinary? Well, I realize it audiences like the way I narrate in not, it's not only my voice. It is a text the context that I create the observation said, I make. So I'm writing the commentaries, and I'm speaking them and ended makes a lot of sense and gives a coherence to films that they would otherwise not. What have? And in his someone there, directing you. You know, saying, hey Werner, let's let's do another take that. No with exception of the editor. He is the only one who would tell me the phrase, doesn't sound right? The grammar is a little bit crooked. Why don't you change? So earth of words, his says to me pronounciation of the word should be different in, in English. So I, I do have helped India seek advice. That's amazing. And also, I'm I'm struck by how demystifying you are of the process. There is nothing. Mysterious about filmmaking. It's just professional work period. Here is a great example of that work from your film, grizzly, man. One of my favorites. This is some of the last football shot by the subject, Timothy Treadwell, a grizzly bear enthusiast. It's a close up of one of his bears, and what haunts me is that in. All the faces of all the bears that trade will ever filmed, I discover no kinship now understanding no mercy.

Russia's 2016 Election Meddling More Comprehensive Than Realized
"Focused on developing an audience and even recruiting asset so people to act in the real world to say stage rallies. Now, one of the report says that a main message that was pushed to African American voters was that it was best to sit out the election to boycott the election. The press turn out, right? And then one example of a fake persona. That was created by the IRA that got a lot of traction is an Instagram account set up with the username of that blacks to Graham, and it had more than three hundred thousand followers. It is worth pointing out that much of the focus up until now has been on Facebook and Twitter. But these researchers are saying that the Russians also use Instagram and other social media platforms. Right, right. One of the things that these reports made clear is that the Russians leveraged every major social media platform Instagram had largely stayed under the radar. That's no longer. The case. These reports say that Instagram was actually a huge part of Russia's efforts online. For example, one of the report says that fake Russian content on Facebook received seventy six point five million engagements on Instagram fake, Russian content earned more than two times as many engagements is that researchers say importantly, looking ahead that the Russians have shifted a lot of their activity to Instagram since the election, which is an important point the Russians are still using social media. Try to influence Americans. That's absolutely, right. And it's a really important point to make that Russians continue to use fake accounts on these platforms for nefarious purposes. So you mentioned that the Senate supplied the data. These researchers used is congress planning to do anything more to stop Russia or any other country from using social media to influence US voters. Well, there's certainly been chatter from lawmakers about possible legislation social media companies would prefer to deal with this without any sort of legislation regulation, of course, one of the reasons that we are talking about this. And this report is out is it puts the public's attention on material online, and with the hope that Americans will be more judicious about what they're engaging with online. That's NPR's. Ryan lucas.

But verify the occasion was the White House signing of the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. The I n f as it's known the treaty bans. Both the US and Russia from having land launched missiles that can fly from three hundred to thirty four hundred miles. Washington says Russia has been cheating on the treaty. And now the US is threatening to pull out that could spell the end of what has been considered one of the most successful, Cold War era, arms, control, treaties, more. We're going to take a few minutes here to lay out what is going on. And why it matters here in the studio to help with that our national security correspondent, David welna? Hi there, Mary Louise and our in house nuclear expert. Jeff Brumfield, welcome to you. Hi, David you start. What is the US beef here? What why does the US wanna pull out? Well, the US says that since the end of the last Bush admin. Station. Russia has been out of compliance with the treaty that Russia has been not only developing but also fielding cruise missiles that are in violation of the treaty and the Obama administration this publicly for the first time four years ago. So this isn't just the Trump administration. Leveling these complaints. This goes back, but President Trump in October said that the US was going to pull out of the treaty. And then earlier this month secretary of state, Mike Pompeo went to Brussels, and he said Russia would have sixty days to come back into compliance with the treaty or the US would begin the formal six-month notification process for pulling out of the treaty. Here's what Tom PEO said Russia admits it's violations and fully and verifiably comes back into compliance. We will of course, welcome. That course of action and just to keep the clock straight here. David Pompeo was talking you said earlier this month he gives Russia sixty days to come back into compliance. So that means the US is looking for something by what February by February for them to come back into compliance. And if they don't by early August, the US would no longer be a party to the treaty and just briefly what does Moscow say today acknowledged that they're cheating on the treaty Moscow. At first denied that they even had

US pullout from nuclear treaty with Russia also targets China
"And let's stay in China. The rulers of which in between opening long bridges are among those attempting to fatherly consequences of America's threatened withdrawal from the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty which limits American and Russian short and medium range missiles. One possible reason for America's desire to ditch the treaty signed by Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev in one thousand nine hundred seven is that it does not cover China, which has been free to keep developing missile forces which the US is not technically at liberty to counter Linda. Does that strike you as the likely reason that America actually wants out of this that they'd not so much worried about Russia or anymore as they are about China? I think that probably increasingly worried about China as well as the fact that the the Trump administration have issued a few statements where they don't think the Russians are necessarily abiding by the tree tea, but certainly b.'s AVI. China, the new superpower, the fact that this treaty doesn't include China means that China developing missiles, especially land-based missiles is something that the Americans I'm conscious do technically, but the Chinese Ken. And so I think that is one of the motivations why the president has threatened to pull out of this treaty. But there's also I think, practical consideration about the US developed be these missiles, especially intermediate range missiles, which are land based where they can put them in the Asian region is another big topic. In other words, there are countries which may not feel comfortable with China, but may not be willing to lend lend their land to the Americans either if there was an escalation of Misao building, they're going to have to put these missiles somewhere in that region. And I think that's going to be something else that we may well be talking about few months time. Indeed, messy. Does. This raise the fun prospect of a America versus China short and intermediate missile race. That sounds like it has all the hallmarks of doing so. But I, I think is interesting, isn't it to see even some of the reaction in Washington with some Republicans not happy about this.
