How Long Can the Jan. 6 Capitol Rioters Be Locked Up for Trespassing?
"What's worse january. Six or stranding americans intentionally in afghanistan. What's worse if you're if you're one of those you know hyperventilating about january six and you think those people on a rotten jail for the rest of their lives and seriously. How long are you supposed to be locked up for trespassing. How long are in january six. Let's see this is timber seventeenth. How many people are still in jail. Because they put their feet up on nancy. Pelosi is desk. I get it bad thing to do. Punish them arrest of charges. Lock them up for the rest of their lives. Do you know how the fear of god has been put into these people and their families how their lives have been destroyed because of their stupidity on january six. Now you could argue. That's as it should be because what they did was a really stupid thing and it was. They became useful idiots for the beast. Those few hundred people became useful idiots for the media machine and the democrat apparatus and biden and all of us liars who pretend now january. Sixth is pearl harbor times nine eleven times ten. They gave them an opening to vilify trump and make him look like he orchestrated it which of course he did not had nothing to do with it. So now there are acting offense again around the capital because there's going to be a few hundred people marching around with signs tomorrow. Complaining about the people locked up still on trespassing charges. Well two things could be true at the same time the protesters tomorrow going to dc would be right in objecting to people rotting under the jail for the rest of their lives because of january sixth. It's also true that what the people did on january sixth was idiotic

Do People 25 or Younger Know What Happend on 9/11?
"Mentioned that on friday but saturday was the actual anniversary of nine. Eleven if you have a grandchild or child who is under twenty five. That means they would have no recollection of the event. That's a lot of people.

I'm dennis prager by the way and welcome to the show so you ask them what happened on nine eleven. Just say what happened on nine eleven. Don't even give the year that'll confuse them can expect them to know that much. Two thousand one. What happened on nine. Eleven if you Have a nephew niece grandchild child and they are again a under twenty five twenty six years of age. Ask them what happened on nine eleven. My my suspicion is that many will not know and if they know they will say. The america was attacked by airplanes. I i i don't know if they'll use the word terrorist than i don't know if identify them as islamist on ice. I strongly suspect they won't identify them. Which is sort of like saying what happened at pearl harbor. America was attacked. By whom don't know the that would be an analogous example. So i if you have any answer to that love to. I mean you would have to be tomorrow. Obviously but i would be very interested. You send me an email. Dennis prager dot com.

If if you can't ask your grandchild or your child for five minutes. I don't want to the press you that shows year really walking on eggshells with your own child or grandchild
Remembering 9/11, 20 Years On
"Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings but they cannot touch the foundation of america. Some of what we heard from president. George w bush on the evening of september eleventh. Two thousand one back with tonight. Michael beschloss celebrated author and presidential historian his latest work presidents of war. Michael also has a show called fireside history with michael beschloss. It premiered tonight and you can catch it this weekend on the choice from msnbc which is streaming on peacock. Michael so much. I want to talk about tonight. But our own mark. Murray compared nbc news polling. He found that after nine eleven seventy-two percent said the country was headed in the right direction. As of august only twenty nine percent say the country is headed in the right direction. Wonder was it an illusion to think that in times of crisis americans have always come together or have we as a people really changed that much since nine eleven. I think our system has basically broken down in the last twenty years in a way that no longer do we. Are we in a position to depend on the kind of unity for instance that we saw after pearl harbor with franklin roosevelt in nineteen forty

"I had the tv on last night in the background. And i was sort of channel surfing. And somehow i wound up as i was growing up and down the dial or the settings on cnn.

What Is Joe Biden's New China Doctrine?
"Optimists long hoped that welcoming china into the global economy would make a responsible stakeholder and bring about political reform as president. Donald trump blasted that week now. Joe biden is converting trumpian bombast into doctrine that pits america against china a struggle between rival political systems. Which he says can have only one winner between. Mr trump and mr biden have engineered the most dramatic break in american foreign policy in the five decades since richard nixon went to china mr biden and his team based their doctrine on the belief that china is less interested in coexistence and more interested in dominance. The task of american policy is to blunt. chinese ambitions. America will work with china in areas of common interest like climate change but counter. Its ambitions elsewhere. That means building up the strengths at home and working abroad with allies that can supplemented economic technological diplomatic military. And moral haft much about mr biden's new doctrine make sense. The optimistic case for engagement has crumbled under the realities of chinese power led by president. Xi jinping china has garrison the south china sea imposed party rule on hong kong threaten taiwan skirmished with india and has tried to subvert western values in international bodies. Many countries are alarmed by china's wolf warrior diplomacy but the details of the biden doctrine contain much to worry about not least that it is unlikely to work. One problem is how. Mr biden defines threat because politics in washington is broken. He seems to feel that he needs the spirit of pearl harbor to help. Rekindle a sense of national purpose. That is a miscalculation it is true. That republicans jump on anything. They can as soft on china even though every time. They say that the presidential election was stolen. They do the work of chinese propagandists

These days i gotta go to the website and look at jim. Zuckerman dot com. It's j i. M z u c k e r dot com. If it's possible to have a broad scope to somebody's work. You've got every single kind of photography that i think is possible is showing up in your work and it is dynamic. It's colorful it's got a lot of real energy behind it. So i got ask you some reading your website and one of the first things i learned. Is that photography was not always your passion. You were actually studying to be a doctor. And how do you get from wanting to be a doctor to photography well. My sister's boyfriend introduced me to the dark room. And i just found that so exciting. He loaned me his camera. Before i had one showed me how to use it. And i started taking pictures with it and it was just blew. My mind was so exciting. And i thought to myself i have got to do this. And so i made the switch much to the dismay of my family but as you can imagine but i never regretted it net. Not not for a minute and i love photography from the beginning and i still do still have the passion. Oh very cool. Did you remember what it was that turns john with those early experiences. What is it about photography that said this has got a connection to something deep for you. It's a good question. i'm not sure if it was any one particular moment. But i can't remember something that made me want to do special effects and and i did i special effects for ten years. I kind of disdained normal photography in the summer of sixty nine. I was working in pearl harbor. It was a summer job between semesters working on old world war two dry docks maintaining them and in one of the dry docks. I found a piece of broken red glass. It was from an old darkroom from the forties. And i was just experimenting with color infrared film and i realized that if you shoot through the glass like a filter you get one set of colors and if you reflect in the glass you get another set of color so you could.

Elimination of all those casualties who did not correlate to define data sets established by biometric in historical information obtained or some pretty exhaustive individual research.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066
"The day was february nineteenth. Nineteen forty two after the japanese bombed pearl harbor a couple of months earlier. The citizens and government of the united states became frantic. They were increasingly distrustful of the mini japanese immigrants in citizens in the country believing they couldn't be trusted to remain loyal to the us over japan. In many people's minds people of japanese descent were threat to national safety and security as a result president. Franklin delano roosevelt signed executive order. Ninety sixty six. Arthur is the secretary of war military commanders to set up military zones that anybody to be evacuated from the executive order was framed as a measure necessary to protect national security during wartime since the country was now vulnerable to attack. But what the order actually did was take advantage of the public's escalating fears of japanese americans involvement in the war and use it to put them in concentration camps. The passing of executive order ninety sixty six was largely precipitated by the bombing of pearl harbor but resentment of foreign nationals japanese immigrants in particular had already been growing steadily by the time. Fdr signed executive order before the nineteenth century. Japan didn't want much to do with europe or its colonies but by the eighteen hundreds japan had begun trading with the united states and japanese. People were immigrating to the us and other places as temporary laborers at the same time. The us was barring other asian nationals from entering the country the chinese exclusion act passed in eighteen eighty two banned immigration from china to the us and prohibited chinese people in the us from becoming citizens the law partly had to do with the high unemployment and low wages in the us which were blamed on chinese laborers but it also had to do with prejudices white americans had against chinese people. All of this is to say that there was a precedent for immigration from asia. By the time the us government began placing limits on the number of japanese people that could come to the us and in nineteen twenty four. The government passed the johnson. Reed act which set immigration quotas and effectively cut off the stream of japanese people immigrating to the states. People who moved to the us from japan could it become citizens although children born to japanese people in the us received birthright citizenship. Even so most of the japanese people who moved to the us settled on the west coast or in hawaii building up their own communities with their own schools and businesses and a lot of these communities. Were doing well. But when the japanese bombed pearl harbor in nineteen forty one in the hopes of destroying us military forces in the pacific. The us was compelled to enter world war two after years of try to avoid being hands on in the conflict. At first there were appeals for people to remain calm but soon enough the government began targeting thousands of foreign nationals who it believed to be a threat. Many of the people who the government considered enemy aliens had done. Nothing that would legitimately earned him the label of enemy regardless they were still sent to camps jails and prisons under suspicions of espionage sabotage and any other activities that could aid to pay in the war and as more people were locked up as the media amplified false reports of japanese threats and as actual japanese military threats posed. The public grew more fearful of japanese people
Hacker attempted to poison water supply of Florida city
"On friday afternoon somebody tempered with the drinking water in the city of oldsmar florida Before the water leaves the oldsmar treatment facility. They've got a town water treatment facility before it leaves their inflows into people's taps certain chemicals and additives get added to drinking water to make it safe for people to drink and at one thirty pm on this past friday. An employee at the oldsmar water treatment. Plant notice that the cursor on his computer screen it started moving around on its own the cursor pulled up the control for chemical called sodium hydroxide. So i'm hydroxide is better known by the common name lie l. y. Lies used to help regulate the acidity of the drinking water. It's added to potable water and very small amounts to regulate the ph of the water but in high doses live course can be dangerous profoundly so it's the same chemical that used in liquid drain cleaners typically oldsmar ads lie into its water in the amount of one hundred parts per million or less but on friday morning that water treatment employees watched that phantom cursor move the controls in the water treatment software to increase the amount of li- added into old mars water from less than one hundred parts per million to over eleven thousand parts per million. It was obvious to this employee right away that his computer was being hacked he immediately took control of the machine Undid what the hacker had just done before the water could be significantly contaminated today the county sheriff announced that the water treatment facility on friday was unlawfully hacked. He said the fbi and the us secret service are now involved in an ongoing investigation as of now there are known suspects. It's unknown whether the hacker was located overseas or here in the united states city officials made it clear today that even if that water treatment employee hadn't been so attentive on friday and hadn't seen the hack happen in real time it's still would've taken at least a full day before that contaminated water hit people's taps they say there are other safeguards in place that would have detected the strong change the contamination of water way before then. So they're saying that this kind of attack on the city's water supply would have been caught some other way if it wasn't caught the way that it was which i guess is comforting in a sense but until you know more about this hack including how hard it was to pull off it really does raise all sorts of questions about how secure all of those safeguards really were. If you could hack the computer that added the lives of the water. Could you have hacked the alarms that are supposed to alert people that the ph is wrong in the water as it's getting to people's taps an attack on our critical infrastructure on our electricity on our hospitals and the water we drink. That is the nightmare scenario for cyber warfare leading leaving the conceptual realm that most of us don't get into the terrorism realm that a lot of us think about all the time. That nightmare has never been fully realized in this country but in oldsmar florida on friday we got one big step closer nicole. Pro roth is a cybersecurity reporter for the new york times. she's really really good. She has reported on critical infrastructure attacks. All over the world This is what she had to say tonight. After hearing the news out of oldsmar she says quote. I always put water treatment plants. I in my stories in my lineup of remotely hackel infrastructure. Because this is the attack scenario that freaked me out the most to date. These attacks have been near misses yet. We continue to see determined hackers poking and probing these systems warned of cyber pearl harbor bombs but water. Contamination is a silent though no less deadly

So really toward toward the much the end of the period I was particularly interested in. But it Zafer lasting relationship very different than the relationship with with Roosevelt. Um Uh, I think he saw he saw Stalin as as a potentially, um, dangerous foe in in in Britain's future, as opposed to like a lifelong ally. But he also recognized that the value of enlisting the aid of the Soviet Union as well, I think he said something to the effect that I'm gonna watch that quote, so I'm not even going to try it. But, yeah, he recognized it was very important to have have Stalin as an ally, even though he really sort of had to hold his nose while doing it. And here's Marty. Marty's Our next color, Marty.

HOw Has White Supremecy Changed In The US
"V Colorado US presidential election campaign which draws to a merciful conclusion. Four days from now has been such a circus that events which would have defined. Other contests have been swiftly forgotten among those wells the thwarting earlier this month of an apparent plot by far right still styled militiamen to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the subsequent discovery of links between those alleged conspirators and of the white supremacist groups. This is a cohort which has been repeatedly. Nodded and winked at from the highest pulpit in the land. These last four years. What happens in the next four? Whatever happens on Tuesday well earlier I spoke to Kathleen, Balu Assistant Professor of US history at the University of Chicago and offer of bringing the war home, the white power movement and paramilitary America I began by asking Kathleen how the white supremacist movement has changed between the nine, thousand, nine hundred, and now there's two differences in what's happening in the nineteen eighties and forward one is at the violence. This movement is interested in carrying out is explicitly anti-state they want to overthrow the federal government. So this is one of the reasons that I think white nationalist as a term can be confusing the nation and white nationalism nineteen eighty-three is not the united. States, it is the Irian Nation and they're imagining a fundamental overthrow of the country and all of its democratic practices. So the other thing that's different is that this movement is bringing together a lot of different people in every way but race, it is an. Incredibly, diverse social movement. We're talking about a whole bunch of different sub sections of white supremacists thinking. So this is the first time in the nineteen eighties. The we see a unification between clansmen, neo-nazis skinheads, radical tax resisters, posse comitatus members, and then in the early nineteen nineties, we start to see militia members in these groups as well. Now, all of that is emblematic of a movement that has taken a page from earlier. American. History. So it it it borrows from the opportunism of earlier clan mobilizations, but it's Very different in its deadly intent and in the number of people is able to bring together in this new set of sort of violent belief systems. If you consider its car numbers and its current firepower, how is impossible to quantify how dangerous these movements are obviously, we had seen in recent weeks the apparent thwarting of a plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer Michigan but is that an it's a depressing thought but is that likely a straw in the wind will there be more of that sort of thing not. Only will there be more, but that story is already proving to be more than it looked at first glance. There were reports today that members of the base, which is an underground paramilitary wide power group have been arrested in connection to that plot. So already, we're seeing cross group organization and were seeing how this is working in network much the way it did in the nineteen eighties. So one of the most important things that people can do a to understand what this is an to combat it is simply To connect these stories with one another, it's very easy especially in a news cycle when people feel so buffeted with information at all times and sort of feel under attack by their own news feeds, I think it's very difficult to do the work of paying attention but it it's absolutely critical here because it's not just about the group that tried to kidnap Governor Whitman it's about the the connections between that group. The proud boy is Adam often in the base boo-boys, there are many of these groups on. The scene now now to your question about numbers, this is a very difficult one I'm not sure we even have an accurate headcount for the earlier movement, and that's where we have the the most consistent set of archival materials. As a historian. I'm very reluctant to make specific claims about the movement right now because I don't have my sources together yet and I won't have them for another ten or twenty years but what we know from reading the history and from reading the news. So in other words, what the? That history gives us can show us is that we have every reason to be concerned about further activity and escalating violence. This is a movement that is intent on mass casualty attacks that has used not just voter intimidation, but all kinds of other violent means over years and that has been organizing in this way quite effectively for decades. If not generations, this is not a new problem and it's not something that will go away quickly and the other thing is that this is a movement that is organized around sell style action much. Like a group in in radical Islamic terror would would work mix up that this group has been doing that since nineteen eighty-three, they're very, very good at it because they use cell style organization, there's not a great correlation between rising size of group membership lists and rising capacity for violent action. Because if you're trying to carry out an act of style terror, you're not interested in two thousand people who are going to come out on Saturday and March Down Main Street. You're interested in six people who are willing to detonate a bomb. So the difference is sometimes what we see is a shrinking of membership before an intense surge and violence I'm very concerned that that's where we are now and I think you know the people who do have archival information for the present day moment are saying the same thing. So I'm hearing this from people in the FBI people at Department of Homeland Security who have access to surveillance documents. I'm hearing this from people at the southern poverty law center and other watchdog groups who? Spend their time monitoring white power and militia TV, online, and most of hearing this from people who work in de radicalization trying to help people out of the movement everyone is sounding the alarm bell right now, everyone is running up the red flag and I think you know you don't have to listen to me. I'm just a historian, but I think everyone is calling everyone they can think of to to sort of try to get people to pay attention to this very grave situation. Hunch they're bringing an acceleration in the momentum of these groups because of if obviously radically different reasons the last two presidents you had the the fact of a black president of the United States, which clearly a number of people had a significant problem with and he's followed by a president who is to put it charitably equivocal in his condemnation of these groups. Yes. Absolutely and we're seeing a very clear relationship between political rhetoric and extremist action is that to price do you think can be put back in the tube night at all? That's a good metaphor for it. I usually say we can't on ring the bell. Exactly the problem right because you know if you take something like the president's remarks in the first debate about calling the proud boys to quote stand back and stand by even if you take the most generous interpretation of his remarks and say, okay, perhaps perhaps he was fed that group name and he doesn't know who they are perhaps he meant to tell them. To stand down even if we take all of that as given I think that there is a very real problem i. in the fact that it's not just the proud boys who heard that as a paramilitary call to readiness there are many other underground groups like the Bass Lake the guys in Michigan who heard that call as the call to action. And there's another problem of even in the case of activists who right now support the president. There's no indication that he has the power to call these people off. Once he has ignited away of violence as I said, this is a movement that has been expressly anti-government for many many years, and this is a strange thing about the United States that it has since the Vietnam war been. Very possible to hold the position in the United States of being anti government and pro president or pro-military or pro cop at the same time I mean we see Ronald Reagan making statements about how the government is the problem not the solution while he is the head of the government. So that sort of gymnastics act of balancing that since a fracture is not a problem for people here. So, there is a way that you can be pro trump right now and still be dedicated to violent overthrow of the state down the road or at some present moment and another note of caution is just the last time that this movement became very deadly setting off the string of events that led to the Oklahoma City bombing, and you know the the most horrific mass casualty attack for the United States between Pearl Harbor Nine Eleven. The last time that happened was not under a leftist administration it was under Reagan and it was because activists in this movement saw Reagan's perceived moderation as a sign. that. Political means could never deliver the kind of change that they wanted. Even Reagan was not offering what they wanted, which was reestablishment of Jim Crow Segregation or reinstatement of slavery or establishment of a white homeland things like this were much too radical for mainstream politics. So there's a real chance that even trump will hit align where it's too extreme for him. I mean even trump is not talking about reestablishing slavery and at that point I think there might be a wave of dissatisfied people if he's re-elected who are interested in mass casualty attacks just finally is there an aspect of this which is? Not just or perhaps beyond politics and beyond even race it strikes me just looking at the. Way in which the members of these movements present themselves, there's this strange cartoonish idea of masculinity in play. You know it is a very masculine movement, but it turns out that both in the earlier movement and today women are incredibly important to this activism You don't always see that in the public facing part of what they're doing. But in the period of my study, there's a whole bunch of women who are sort of forming the social network holds these people together and really makes possible violent action and they're doing everything from publishing their own newspapers to running their. Own Auxiliary groups to driving getaway cars and disguising people when they're on the Lam and even as they're doing all that they are saying things like I'm not an activist I'm not political I would never seek a leadership role because you know within this worldview out sweat good womanhood looks like but however you cut it women are incredibly important here and we would be foolish to think that those deep social interactions aren't part of what is sustaining this groundswell. I'm just you're just finally finally and feel free if you like to to refuse to gaze into a crystal ball but. How do you see this playing out in the next? Well, the next few weeks I if the polls are correct and Donald Trump does lose office on Tuesday. Well I, think everyone in the United States. Approaching all polls with a degree of caution from now on for. Immediate. Historical reasons. My concern here is that there is no mental picture that I can paint. There's no series of events that I can see that would make someone at this point with this set of social pressures with this worldview simply put down the weapons and go home and say, okay, well, we lost this round. It's time to go do some democratic change somewhere else. So my concern is that if trump is while if biden is elected, I think that these activists will not only be frustrated and rally look for mass casualty are opportunities if trump. Is elected I think that one ends game has to do with them, feeling dissatisfied and turning to mass casualty attacks in route to overthrowing the government. Again, as they've been doing for quite a long time, another route would be a continuation of sort of this Lincoln in an odd slash outright calling to arms line of rhetoric I mean there's a way that groups like this and other contexts have become strike forces and death squads for authoritarian regimes and there we can look to southern America and central, America for many examples of how that's happened. All all three of these are threats to Americans and to our democracy. So I think it is a very bleak time for people who pay attention to this particular part of the American political life. But was Kathleen Blues speaking to me earlier, Kathleen's book bring the war home the white power movement and paramilitary America is published by BELKNAP.
U.S. Blames Iran For Threatening Election Emails, Says Russia May Interfere Too
"In a surprise press conference the Director of National Intelligence came to warn US quote unquote that there's election interference happening the main culprits are Russia of course in. Iran. We, know more about Iran and we know they've been sending threatening emails to people while posing as the proud boys the racist far right group these emails say that they have your info in that. If you don't vote for trump, they'll find you and hurt you these went out to voters mainly in Florida in somehow deny Ratcliffe said that they were designed to hurt trump yeah. You're going to have to help me out with that logic emails from the proud boys that threaten harm. If you don't vote trump are supposed to be hurting trump I mean it's like they say many people don't actually know this. The Pearl Harbor was actually designed to hurt Japan. Shocking right I mean that's what they don't teach you in school. Of course that's not true. This logic makes no sense. Thankfully FBI director. Christopher. Ray was also at the press conference and he had this to say the FBI is the primary agency responsible for investigating malicious activity against election infrastructure maligned foreign influence operations and election related crimes like voter fraud and voter suppression or intimidation, and that's exactly what we've been doing. At the B. I. Working closely with our intelligence community partners, as well as our other federal state and local partners to share information, bolster, security, and identify and disrupt any threats. We are not going to tolerate foreign interference in our elections or any criminal activity that threatens the sanctity of your vote or undermine public confidence in the outcome of the election. When we see indications of foreign interference or federal election crimes, we're going to aggressively investigate and work with our partners to quickly take appropriate action. We're also coordinating with the private sector both technology and social media companies to make sure that their platforms aren't used by foreign adversaries to spread disinformation and propaganda. We've been working for years as a community to build resilience in our election infrastructure and today that infrastructure remains resilient. You should be confident that your vote counts. Early unverified claims to the contrary should be viewed with a healthy dose of skepticism. We encourage everyone to seek election and voting information from reliable sources namely your state. Election officials. And to be thoughtful, careful, discerning consumers of information online. And if you suspect criminal activity, we ask that you report that information to your local FBI field office.
WASP Documentarian Erin Miller
"I'm talking today to Aaron Miller. Now, Erin is not a pilot, but she is the granddaughter of a wasp that's women's airforce service pilots, and she has a fascinating story to tell. So Aaron, thank you so much for being with us today. Thank you for having me your welcome so What I'd like is for you to to share with us what what your grandmother has shared with you about her flying story, and then we'll get to your story of how you how you made things right for your grandmother. But can you tell us how she got her starting aviation? So. My Grandmother. Elaine. Dan. For harmon was born in Baltimore Maryland in Nineteen nineteen and she grew up in the city and was born at home in her house. And had two siblings and was very independent. sporty did a lot of rotor bike and very athletic growing up and she attended the University of Maryland in College Park. Maryland for college. and. She did lots of activities there as well. She was a cheerleader she was on the rifle team swim team. She was in a sorority in all kinds of things very active and her senior year of college. She saw an advertisement in the school newspaper for the civilian. Pilot Training. program. Which I'm sure your listeners are familiar with but it was a program in the nineteen thirties to have more people in the United States prepare to get a pilot's license and Senate was I guess subsidized by the US government and it was offered through a lot of universities and university. Of Maryland was one of them. And Anyway. So they had an advertisement for this program where you could learn how to fly and it costs thirty five dollars. Or forty dollars and you got thirty five hours of flight training and ground school and whatever. So my grandma thought that would be cool. So she applied and at the time which doesn't sound like a big deal you're signing up for a class nowadays. But back, then if you were a woman, they only accepted one woman for every ten men in the class. So you kind of had to I don't I never asked her if there were comp competition about this or she just happened to be the only woman that applied I don't really know but anyway. So, she asked her dad for the money and she also had to get a permission slip signed because she was female and under the age of twenty one and not married. So her dad had to sign a permission slip and that's how she initially took pilot training lessons West, through this program at the University of Maryland. Very. Cool. So after she got her thirty five hours, did she continue to fly on her own? Not Really she I think she did a little bit but she basically that was in nineteen, hundred forty, sue her last year of college. She got her pilot's license and then not too long after that, she got married in the summer of nineteen forty one. To my grandfather, and then as your listeners I'm sure. Well, aware six months later Pearl Harbor happened. So I don't think you flying around was generally something that happened. A Lot. So at that point, my grandmother and grandfather were moving around a lot to support the war effort they lived in Ohio at one point for a while and we're kind of working at different places. And and so how did she get back into? So in nineteen, forty, three, I believe there was an big. The Women Airforce Service pilots kind of became newsworthy and there was a little bit of news about them. Newsreel. The old newsreels are in life magazine, and so my grandmother heard about this program called the WAAS. And thought she could apply and she asked my grandfather. If he thought it would be a good idea and he thought it would be a great idea for her. So she applied and she kind of didn't really think she would get in because she really the most she had done was that civilian pilot training program she didn't have a lot of hours. And she kind of applied and thought oh well, we'll see what happens but they accepted her. So that's how she ended up becoming one of the Watson. Then she started training in April of Nineteen, forty four where did she go for Carini? She was in sweetwater Texas Avenger field, which is in western Texas. About an hour west of Abilene Texas. Now. Did your grandfather go there with her when she went there No. So my grandfather was an engineer and he later became a patent attorney, but he was not in the service because he had a physical defect so he was So, he couldn't serve in the army. But he was I think recruited I would say by a company to actually manufactured airplane parts called Jack and Heintz which some people may not because I've seen their parts in the in the warbirds He got sent to Asia to work on a plan to repair aircraft for the US military in theater in the Pacific. So the planes didn't have to be sent back to the continental United States to be repaired to save time. So he got sent over there to work on that program as a civilian, and so he was gone during this time when she was trainy. tweet water. Aircraft was she trained in? So she was trained on I think they were all trained on basic plane. So things like the the steersman PT, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, eighty, sixes, bt, Thirteen's neither all planes that she was training on. And what did she eventually flawed she I assume she was multi current and flew a lot of different airplanes as wasp. Yes. So all the WAAS flu lots of different planes and there were groups of wasps that were trained to fly every plane that was produced during World War Two from little trainer planes all the way up to be twenty nine bomber. So not every wasp was trained to fly every plane obviously but they're little groups trained to fly like you know pursuit crafter bombers or whatever. So. She was trained to fly bt thirteen's to train men in instrument training. So that was her job after she graduated. So she was transferred to Nellis Air. Base. In Las Vegas. And with her best friend from the WAAS Maggie Gee and Magnesia was to- target pilot in Las Vegas. So they were transferred there and my grandma trained men on instrument training in the thirteen. And she was also has some time as a co-pilot on the B seventeen.

"On Pearl Harbor and what a mess a lot of facts I have made it through history for the record Yamamoto admiral you sort of cool young model never said that if we invade America there will be a rifle behind every blade of grass but he thought that and he told Japanese general staff that so it was sort of in the spirit of something he would have said he was a Harvard educated absolute hands down genius I'm and it's been well documented what they got wrong and Pearl Harbor but there's a very obscure incident near and dear to my heart as I was born and grew up in Hawaii and it's the tale of of the legendary Hawaiian band kinda Haley and the so called neo incident yeah I was a privately owned island and I thought that I would teleport us urine KFI to NY L. seventy eight years after the so called me L. incident if you've never heard of this listen close because this is an amazing American stories such a compelling story is going to be a major movie except they cast a like the scraggly little white guy to play this gigantic six foot three Hawaiian hero by the name of been kinda Haley so let's go to me live on the L. Brian take it away well thanks Brian Hey it's Brian suits here and I am on the island of NY L. and it is December seventh nineteen forty one media now is the westernmost island in the Hawaiian chain I was born on the one who and I went to school in elementary school and through a fifth grade in a while and there's a household name in Hawaii and that most Americans don't know wouldn't have never heard of it of course Pearl Harbor is a household name throughout American frankly throughout much of the world because that of course was the event that finally get America off the fence into World War two I am just just under about two hundred miles or so from Pearl Harbor neat yeah now is a tiny island it's so approximately tear drop shaped with the point of the tear drop pointing west in the bulb pointing east now this island was purchased for ten thousand dollars in gold in nineteen department eighteen sixty four buy a the Robinson family from can command may the fifth the the last member the command may have family to rule the islands and this island about sixty three square miles had been in the private hands of the Robinson family since eighteen sixty four this is the only privately owned island in the Hawaiian chain and it remains in the Robinson family the ownership to this day but this day Lee is December seventh nineteen forty one and right about now over at Pearl Harbor the first wave of Japanese are attacking the US Pacific Fleet at anchor now of course you all remember last year in nineteen forty when president Franklin Delano Roosevelt Sally to have the Pacific Fleet from San Diego it's traditional anchorage and moved it forward to Pearl Harbor this was one of many different the the sort of political maneuvers FE are dead to send messages to both the Germans and the Japanese to the United States didn't want to fight but was prepared to fight one year ago December nineteen forty FDR called up the National Guard throughout America every national guardsmen in America has done an active duty already for one year this was a message to Hitler and to the Japanese so they were about to come off their one year mandatory active duty several hundred thousand men at least they think they are they think they're going to be home for Christmas but here's the bad news in a couple minutes the airfields Wheeler and Hickam airforce bases or air stations are going to be hit by the Japanese fighters are going to be caught on the ground because the local commanders rather than dispersing the aircraft to sandbag many bunkers called revenants instead they opted to cluster the aircraft on the airfields on the taxi ways at cetera so that they could secure them better well they're about to get a really bad piece of news I can tell you and that is a waves of Japanese fighters are about to S. sweep in and begin strafing with the the parked fighters one of those Japanese pilots airman first class Shigenori Nishi K. ichi he's Sir twenty two years old he he will be here in in a few days and he's busy pulling his nose over and strafing a bunch of P. forty tomahawk said Hey come air base there just to the west side of Pearl Harbor no I don't know this because I'm on neat yeah and there's no telephone lines here a few people have radios in in in fact the population here in NY L. was never told to move when the Robinson family bought this island they became landlords of the several hundred families mainly Hawaiian who are picking farmers and terra route farmers said chicken farmers they've been living here of course for centuries the one of the new things is the influx of Japanese immigrants since the turn of the century since about nineteen oh five as Japanese began to legally migrate to the wine islands to begin working in the pineapple fields etcetera there's a couple prominent Japanese families here in NY L. they've assimilated pretty well they've even learned quite a few words of Hawaiian which is still the primary language here on the ego most of the residents here speaks some words of English but they communicate with each other in Hawaiian as they say there's no radio so nobody knows that in in a few minutes I am in first class Nishi Keiichi is going to be hit now the plan for the Japanese with pretty simple it was incomplete radio silence Sally from their port in in Japan the northern Japan in late November the four carriers see Kaga Akagi sword you and hear you flying dragon here you that is loose the airman first class knew she K. she's home basically here you the flying dragon they've executed this maneuver with absolute precision and they are now to the north west of Hawaii without ever communicating by radio so nobody knew they were coming and the first wave was going to take out the the air defenses of the of the island of Oahu and that would be the fighters on the tarmac and the the taxi ways and any any aircraft defenses they can find sun within a few moments of those attacks the torpedo and dive bombers would begin attacking their main target which was the American Pacific Fleet at anchor on this Sunday morning the aircraft carriers were the primary target the Japanese news that the key to the next great naval war would be who ever possessed effective aircraft carriers they weren't there this is a surprise to the Japanese as a as they crested the ridge is said over look Honolulu the Japanese commander of the air forces in the air about to attack Pearl Harbor reported back to everyone to go that the carriers were not there the carriers are so big that it was that obvious however all the battle ships were there and so the attack commence dive bombing enter P. doing the entirety of the American Pacific Fleet battleships of course battle ships were the capital ship a World War one battle ships ruled the waves and there was a there was a very very vocal battleship mafia that resisted the primacy of aircraft carriers throughout the thirties so it was fairly obvious to everybody in the navy the ability to strike a target four hundred miles away before it ever saw you and or even knew where you were was priceless it was something a battleship couldn't do because a battle ship of course had to literally have a line of sight from its fire direction tower to the target that aircraft carrier it did not especially with this new fangled radar that the British had developed and we had developed as well and so for the Japanese it was a bitter disappointment to not see the aircraft carriers but he got to do what you gotta do so they press their attacks into the battleships and it was at this point that airman first class knew she Keiichi zero his aches is Mitsubishi A. six M. two zero was hit by the anti aircraft fire apparently from the USS Oklahoma is their craft was not fatally hit yet but he could no longer press an attack and he couldn't make it back to hear you because of course there was gonna be three waves of Pearl Harbor this was the first wife the plan was for all the Japanese the surviving aircraft to make it back refuel rearm and come back for a second wave which they did and then if necessary a third way was going to occur a third wave where hopefully the American air defenses will be completely destroyed no aircraft would be in the air no any aircraft but the Americans put up a pretty surprising defense the Japanese lost quite a few aircraft it out of the first wave and for a navy and airforce U. S. Army Air Corps to go from a sleeping hung over Saturday morning state into a state of full combat readiness was actually not something that the Japanese had ever assumed in the war plan they assume that the complete surprise a Pearl Harbor would render the Americans in shock but this was so far for the Japanese going to plan in terms of hitting the the ships of the Pacific Fleet mainly the battleships but for airman first class knew she Keiichi he had to execute the escape plan and the Japanese had a plan for down there but if you had to get your aircraft or lose your aircraft the Japanese had a plan of where you would land and they would pick you up by submarine and that was where I'm standing the island of neo so the needy incident sounds exciting next we'll go well we'll go back to me live on the island in the L. it is the Sony veneris array of Pearl Harbor retelling the story of the knee io incident on KFI A.

That's a better world. Definite question. I'm not sure about the pope actually, eighty three percents say. Yes, howie. Yeah. Of course, of course, it's true. Eight four dapper Deprenyl used to say, they don't pinch you if you didn't do nothin'. Maybe Brad Kavanagh could tend to disagree. But most of the time, that's a fact, you know, get pinched. If you didn't do something. All right. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. Now, New York state is got many problems. And now they have a shortfall on the on the state revenues for the year two point three billion dollars, Monday, New York governor Andrew Cuomo became the latest official. He blamed he said he blamed the shortfall on the new federal tax law that he said is driving people to leave the state. You can't write off your property taxes above ten thousand dollars on your Russ state income tax during a news conference in in Albany, mR, plumber, said the 2017 lock capping deduction on state and federal taxes at ten thousand dollars is the reason for the shortfall. He specifically mentioned Florida as an attractive option for New Yorkers who were unhappy with the change in the tax law. Well, how about the fact that New York has an income tax. A state income tax. I think the city of New York has an income tax. And the state of Florida doesn't. Who wouldn't want to live in Florida rather than New York forget the climate a growing list of public officials in high tax states are expressing alarm that big earners are bolting to low tax states as new data suggests some homeowners are bought are moving in response to the year-old change in the federal tax laws. One of the biggest winners from this shift has been Miami. The city is experiencing more activity than usual from buyers living in states, like New York, New jersey, and Illinois. All blue states, all high taxes all. In the rust belt all in cold country. Why wouldn't who would prefer to live in New York, New jersey or Illinois over Florida? People are drawn to the city by mild weather. No kidding as always and by deals on condos and and lower taxes. Mr. Mr. Cuomo at Democrats at someone in the tax bracket in New York City already faced a combined tax rate of forty five percent. Forty five percent. If you move to Florida. Your tax rate on your income. I mean, you have to pay property taxes sales, taxes, etc. But the zero percent zero percent forty five percent. So in other words, move the Florida and you get the same salary. You have doubled your pay. And plus it's cheaper to get a house, and you get more room. New Jersey's department of the treasury reported last month, a thirty five percent drop in income tax revenue for December compared to the previous year contract attributing the shortfall to changes in tax policy in Connecticut income tax collections for December came in at seventy five million above projections. But going forward the tax law changes in the poor stock market performance could drag down revenue earlier later in the year. So but New Jersey has had a problem. We we've talked about this before the they they put the millionaires income tax. And remember it was the same one. They wanted to put a on here was ruled unconstitutional by the supreme judicial court, and they're now they're trying to write a new version of a law that is constitutional. So when when New Jersey over Chris Christie's protests, and I believe is veto when they put in that tax. There was one guy just one guy alone. I think his name was tapper he moved from New Jersey to Miami. Beach and the state lost fifty million. He was a billionaire hedge fund guy the state lost fifty million dollars in tax red state tax revenue when this one guy left one guy. And so now now the with the with the fact that the taxes are so high and they keep going up, and it's not just the the the write offs on your income. Fact, it's just everything Manhattan co op and condo sales. Last year were down twelve percent from two thousand seventeen to their lowest level since two thousand nine. So, you know, here's the thing. This has been this has been going. This has been going on for a long time. I mean, look at look at the Kennedys member rose Rose Kennedy Rose Kennedy when she died. At the age of what one hundred and four or something like that in in nineteen nineteen Ninety-four she hadn't left the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for like twelve years. And she she she her mind was going again, she's very old. And she she hasn't lived in Florida. And they they let her file her will in Florida to avoid the estate taxes, and it cost the cost the Commonwealth millions of dollars, but she was allowed to. So this is this is nothing new, but people are trying to get get out of the state out of the states for for multiple reasons. I'm just want to ask you do. You think do you wanna stay in this state? Frankly, I don't want to stay in the state. I don't want to stay. How about any you guys anybody here? Everybody planet who's planning to retire in Massachusetts. Don't everybody shake your head at once? Yeah. I know. Right. Eight four four or five hundred forty two forty two. So you'd still have to pay you still have to pay the federal income tax in Florida. But that's that's thirty. That's thirty three percent. Thirty percent rather than rather than forty five or fifty percent in New York. So why why so you so you got a huge huge pay increase. Mary you're next with Howie Carr. Go ahead Mary. We don't have a lot of time. We'll get we'll get back to these calls. I wanna know if you're thinking about moving, do, you know, people have moved out of the state just to to to beat the taxes. It's just it's it's so much easier to live in Florida most parts of Florida than it.
