It would mark the final months of World War two and the start of mandated presidential term limits. Also the end of FDR's life. Here's the story. Starting in 1940 years, the world plunged into a World War two, Roosevelt broke a tradition dating all the way back to George Washington running for an unprecedented Third term as president. Despite objections from some lawmakers, there was no constitutional barrier in FDR's way. He defeated Republican window Wilkie in a landslide 449 electoral votes to 82. The next four years were brutal on Roosevelt as his health decline. Ignoring doctor's orders and pleas from his family. FDR decided to run again in 1944, vowing to finish the global fight against fascism. He defeated Republican Thomas Dewey in another electoral blowout. FDR's bad health was largely hidden from the American public. For years. The man suffered from partial paralysis related to polio, long problems and heart issues. Three months after the inauguration, Roosevelt was in Georgia, where he began complaining about a terrible headache. Soon he slumped over in his chair. And died two hours later. He was 63 years old. Vice President Harry Truman was immediately summoned to the White House in Washington. As I write in my book, killing the rising sun quote. Stepping out from the elevator on the second floor, Truman is surprised to see Eleanor Roosevelt and her daughter, Anna. Wearing black dresses.

"Folks, This is the Eric Metaxas show. I just happen to be Rickman taxes. That's really a coincidence. But this is very intentionally a show and on this show. I interview other people. For example, in the past, I've interviewed Governor Mike Huckabee, I thought would be great to get him back. We know he's very, very busy, but I called in some favors. And son of a gun hearing is Governor Mike Huckabee governor welcomed the program. Well, thank you. I hope you like my hair. I went to a Nancy Pelosi Salon had a blowout and didn't wear a mask. And man, it looks great. Don't you think? Uh, tell me if you know something people are always criticizing her. But she said something that was Harry Truman Ask. I don't mean Harry Truman and Harry President Harry Truman, she said. Harry, look up, she said. The buck stops with the colorist, and I thought that is just that's gonna go. You know, That's an epitaph that is a powerful statement. The buck stops with the epitaph. Now, listen, we've we've got to stop joking. That's always difficult because we're a couple of jokesters. But you have written a book Steve Diesel, and I thought, What about getting him on the program? It's a crazy idea sometimes, and I thought Maybe we could get him and it turns out we were also able to get Steve Diesel Stevie's will welcome to this program. Thank you, by the way here. Well, look, the book that the two of you written together I always say this. Unfortunately, it's very important. Wouldn't it be wonderful if it weren't important to have to underscore the basics? The title of your book is the three C's. That made America great Christianity capitalism. And the Constitution. My goodness. How crazy that we need to underscore this, But we do and by the grace of God, the two of you have have put it. Into a book. So let me ask you first, You're obviously where that we're living in historic times, and that we haven't been stressing these things with the younger Generation. It doesn't feel funny that at this point in our lives that we would need toe just dress such basics. Yes, because they didn't have distress. And when I was in high school what they were And when I look at these, these three sees their bounds Foundational Stone of our republic. And if we lose them, and if we lose our foundation and we end up losing public, and so That's why when I saw these things, this racer Tom, I said Best person I could ever get to team up with me on. This is Governor Huckabee. So you put a couple of ex pastors together. That's got some political love and insight for this country, and it turned out to be a pretty good situation. You're a lot of people. They were preaching to the choir. Well as you're just mentioning some of our choir is singing off key. When you look at the last election, 40% of the evangelical stayed home and 20% there, Marty registered, so we've got some people we need to get in a choir. You know if I want a Christian, I kill myself. Just over that fact, I got to tell you when I hear that. I cannot believe I cannot believe we complain about Gavin Newsom in California. And then I found out most of the evangelicals in California didn't Even vote. They have a bad world view. It is not a biblical worldview. They think it is their wrong. It's a tragedy. Ah, Governor Huckabee. You've just been a voice for for these issues for Christianity, Capitalism in the Constitution, your whole public life. Obviously you were the governor of the Great State of Arkansas that tell us What you see happening right now in this country and with this election Eric. The lack of people's knowledge of history is killing us. It's destroying this country. People have no idea who America really is and what it's foundations are, and one of the reasons that I was very excited when Steve came to me and said he wanted to Partner with me on this book that really highlights the underpinnings of our nation. The three things that without we fall apart, and one is the Judeo Christian Foundation of Spiritual outta that you cannot talk about America cannot understand America without it. The second being capitalism. Our economic system is critical to our success and this stunning prosperity that America has built in a very short period of time and then the Constitution. So what? I think a lot of people do not understand. I don't know how they got through school. Did they pass civics? Did they ever learn about the uniqueness of our system? Let me give you one example. I think a lot of people miss, including people that he got elected to Congress, for heaven's sakes. The essence of our Constitution is not so that the government can put restrictions on us and tell us what we can and cannot do. It is not a government document. To tell citizens the no nos It is a document that tells the government get your hands off the people and let them be free and the constitution is essentially on organizational document. But its foundation. It's fundamental truth is, the government is limited. The people are not let the people be free and we really go into great detail in the book and pointing out the specifics of how these founders I think inspired by God came up with a system of government. That is absolutely 100% unique. And it is the foundation for why our government up until now, anyway, has been so incredibly empowering to ordinary people and giving them a shot to do things they otherwise never could have done. Well, the left has put out a narrative that's a that's a false narrative, of course, that that basically says we're not a Christian nation and like all lies, it's half true. In other words, we're not officially a Christian ancient because the founders were geniuses who understood that if you make something Officially Christian. If it becomes part of the machinery of government, it ceases to be free. And so they said, We're going to have freedom of religion. And we're going to allow America to be the most Christian nation in history by not making it officially Christian in the way that some of the European nations were officially Christian, And that is the conundrum because whenever you're talking with the left, they immediately go to terms like theocracy and you know, and they act as though you have a choice. Between being officially Christian and being officially secular, and in fact that's a lie. We are deeply Christian and a naked public square stripped of faith is not what the founders wanted. I don't know if either of you wants to comment on that. But that to me is is part of the difficulty because the media has worked with that false narrative. I think the separation of church and state I believe they do. And one time when I was pastor and I was a chaplain of the high school football team. We've prayed before and after the games in front of the fans, I didn't know I was doing something unconstitutional, according to But if you look at what they're thinking and how they brought in the big bear out of school if there is this separation, church and state like they say, the first people to violate the Constitution of the guys who framed it in the first place because they wanted the Bible text. In school, and they wanted prayer involved. And they felt like if you wouldn't read the Bible in school. You know what you're like. They're not going to read it in life. What we know that generations, Church and state go ahead guide Governor Well, I was going to mention the fact.

You know, we've all grown up in a world with nuclear weapons, and we know they were developed during World War two in this top secret Manhattan project and then used, of course in 1945 to end the war with Japan. But in 1945, this was all new. First of all. How much did Americans know about the nature of the weapon that was used in Hiroshima? Well, Americans didn't know about the bomb period until it was detonated over here, Oshima and you know, the Manhattan project was cloaked in enormous secrecy, Even though tens of thousands of people were working on it. I mean, many of them didn't even know what the end product of their their labor was going to bay. President Harry Truman did not know about the bomb. He learned about it only upon the death of his predecessor, or you know, in the spring of 1945, that's how under wraps Project was so when President Harry Truman announced that America had detonated the world's first atomic bomb over the Japanese city of her, Shima He was announcing a new, not only a new weapon, but the fact that we had entered into the atomic age and Americans have no idea about the nature of these then experimental weapons, namely that the's are weapons that continue to kill long after detonation, and it would take quite a bit of time and reporting to to bring that out. So a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan surrendered and after years of war, Americans were, of course, deliriously happy that it was over. What did they know about the destruction and death that the weapon had visited on Hiroshima? Well, I mean, at first, it appeared that the U. S government was being almost ecstatically forthright about the new weapon. And when you know, President Truman announces the bombing. He says. Look, this is the biggest bomb that's ever been used in the history of warfare, and the Japanese should surrender. Or they can expect a rain of fire and ruin from the sky. Unlike you know anybody's ever seen before we've unleashed the power of the sun. I mean, it was Almost biblical language, so they knew Everybody who heard the announcement knew that they were dealing with something totally unprecedented. Not just in the war, but in the history of human warfare. What was not stated was you know the fact that this bomb had radiological qualities, not Even blast survivors on the ground would be dot It would diet and agonizing, agonizing way for in the days and the weeks and the months and years that that followed. Right, And so in in the weeks and months that followed what was being said about radiation and its effects of an American general had testified before Congress on this. How did the character in the risk? Yeah. Immediate weeks. You know very little. I mean, a lot of it was really painted in, you know, Landscape devastation, photographs. Landscape photographs were released two newspapers showing you know the decimation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and I mean, they were rubble, pictures and also, you know, obviously, people are seeing the mushroom cloud photos taken from from the bombers themselves. They're from recon missions and But in terms of the radiation, even in the announcement Truman's announcement of of the bomb He's painting the bombs in conventional terms, he says. You know, these bombs are the equivalent to 20,000 tons of TNT and so Americans they don't understand. They know that it's a mega weapon, but they don't understand the full nature of the weapons that you know the radiological effects or not. In any way. Highlighted to the American public and in the meantime, you know, the U. S military is scrambling to find out. You know the how the radiation of the bombs is affecting. The physical landscape, how it's affecting human beings because they're about to send tens of 1000 occupation troops into Japan, so they know they're sending their own re kon missions. In late August of 1945 onto the ground to Hiroshima. Nagasaki, too, to see if they can in good conscience. Clear the atomic cities for occupation, and they do declare, you know privately, you know amongst themselves. That the radiation has dwindled to nothing because of you. Because of the height at which the bomb has been detonated. They they said that much of it had been reabsorbed back into the atmosphere, but They would also, you know, start to study the blast. Survivors who had taken in radiation to their body is to you know when the blast went off and look at how it affected them. The fact is that the people who created the bombs.

A President out of the loop- Black Ops

"Welcome kits, myths, and mysteries cider host kid crumbs today I thought with rumors of a new coal or between America and Russia I do something on the birth of black ops most have become familiar with the term black ops short for block world operations from television and movies. It started with the Manhattan project and later the Atomic, Energy Commission, the atomic bomb was shrouded in. Secrecy by the Manhattan project that wrote the rules on black ops to further that point the world learned that America had dropped an atomic bomb on her Shimon. No one knew at that time or was more surprised than the US. Congress none of the members had any idea that it was being developed by President Harry. Truman had been equally stunned to learn about the bomb. When he became President Truman had been the chairman of the Senate Special Committee to investigate the National Defense Program when he was vice president meaning that he was in charge of watching how money was spent during World War Two. Yet he had no idea about the atomic bomb, the bombs price tag adjusted for inflation costs twenty, eight, billion dollars the Manhattan project employed two hundred. Thousand people it had eighty offices, dozens of production plans including a sixty thousand Acre facility in rural Tennessee, and no knew the Manhattan project existed after the War Congress was given control over the bomb. They created the Atomic Energy Act Nineteen, forty six, a terrifying new system of secret keeping presidential system was governed by presidential executive orders regarding national security information, but the new atomic energy. Commission formerly, the Manhattan project was now in charge of regulating national security information for the first time. In American, history of Federal Agency would be run by civilians that is to say that the Atomic Energy Commission would maintain a body of secrets classified factors other than presidential executive orders. In other words, ABC would keep the precedent out of the loop concerning certain secrets it was. Also the ADC created the term born classified. This meant that the Atomic Energy Commission could classify something that originated outside the government through think tanks and research from private parties. In other words, the e C could hire a private company to conduct research for the commission and the result of the research would be born classified leaving the president out of the loop while all this begs. The question of where all this clandestine research would take place the ask through course would be area fifty one and what pray tell would this research be on area fifty one was born depending on your source about nineteen fifty one, the Atomic Energy Commission was formed in nineteen, forty six. So wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that early research was on spy planes like the. To the flew over Russia but one, year nineteen, forty seven after the creation of the Atomic Energy Commission a flying saucer crash on a ranch just outside Roswell. New Mexico wreckage and bodies were whisked off to area fifty one fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six six when ninety two people came forward with witness reports of what happened back in nineteen, forty, seven, slash nine, hundred, forty, eight. This nineteen eighty-six event raise the public awareness concerning the Roswell. And certainly peaked interest in flying saucers general underlying that interest is always the cry that the government knows about flying saucers and alien life. But the truth is that they are probably as much in the dark as a general public think Atomic Energy Commission to hammer home. It was President Bill Clinton, who in January nineteen, ninety three, the beginning of his first term requested that the head of his Justice Department find out if there really were UFO's that sounds to me like a precedent that's out of the loop.

"Advanced journalistic excellence in the digital age. This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Scott Simon. Tomorrow is the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki. It was the second time nuclear weapons were used in war and also the last NPR's Jeff Brohm feel have the story of the bombing. And why decisions made afterwards. There still a problem today, less than 72 hours after an atomic bomb flattened here, Oshima Another plane took off from a tiny Pacific island. Its mission was to drop America's second nuclear weapon. Its initial target was city of Kokura, which was an arsenal had a large built up military arsenal surrounded by workers Housing. Alex Wallerstein is a historian at the Stevens Institute of Technology. Almost a soon as the bomber left the ground. It ran into trouble. Stormy sky separated it from one of its escort aircraft. They also had problems with the plane, so it turned out Out that there were some problems with the fuel valves on this airplane, and it meant that they had a lot less fuel than they were intended to. So they were really on borrowed time. The bomber made its way to Kokura and found the city was completely obscured by clouds. They couldn't make the drop. So they fly to Nagasaki, which was the secondary target, But it's not that far away. They get the Nagasaki there. Still clouds in Nagasaki. Fuel was now so low. They couldn't get home with the bomb. They had to drop it either here or in the ocean. Well, we've seen says the bombardier. Captain Kermit Beyond had a decision to make, and it happened to be his first day. What are you gonna be on your birthday? The guy who somehow figures out how to use the atomic bomb or the guy who had the drop it in the ocean. There's a debate in the pilot on the bomb, buddy. Yeah, they decided. Surge off the bomb on their second CEO. She Hasegawa is a professor emeritus at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The crew later claimed there was a gap in the clouds. But Hasegawa and others think that they probably dropped it blind. The bomb fell in a valley filled with schools, houses, churches. It killed, 40 to 70,000 people, including Korean forced laborers and scores of Chinese and allied prisoners of war with atomic was international on the victim's international. The plane, now nearly out of gas, limped to an airfield in Okinawa and made an emergency landing. When President Harry Truman learned that a second Japanese city had been bombed. He was shocked. I'm not sure Truman actually understood that they were going to be two bombs ready to go at almost exactly the same time, and when he'd authorized the bombing of Hiroshi MMA, he'd also given the military the green light to use more weapons as they became available. The day after Nagasaki. He explicitly tells the military they cannot drop any more atomic bombs without his express permission. He withdraws that blank check that he had original way authorized from then until today, U. S policy is that nuclear weapons can on ly be used if there's an explicit order from the president. Elaine Scary of Harvard University says that's not really the answer. Nuclear weapons are so powerful that no individual whether it's a bombardier on this birthday or the president of the United States should make the decision to use them. The idea that one person can, you know, initiate a launch that would kill you know tens of millions of people. Is just the opposite of anything that could be meant by governance. There are alternatives involving Congress, for example, and requiring a declaration of war. But right now the weapons are ready to launch at the order of President Donald Trump. Jeff Broomfield. NPR NEWS Washington Democrats and Republicans have not been able to agree on the next round of Corona virus relief after two weeks of talks. In fact, the parties remain largely in the same corners where they began eight still prodding the other compromise, so we're hopeful That they will think about it and come back and tell us they're willing to meet us Halfway to the extent that they're willing to make new proposals, the chief and I will be back here any time to listen to new proposals. That was Treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin and Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. After yesterday's meeting, President Trump says he will act himself if Congress does not pass the aid. NPR's congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis, joined just Claudia. Thanks for being with us. Good morning, Scott. Republicans unveiled their proposal in late July. That was months after the Democrats had released theirs. That's weeks and weeks wise, a little progress. So there's been some progress, but still a really big difference is there on the table now the party's air still far apart by trillions on the overall cost of the bill. Among those differences, Democrats want to reinstate the extra unemployment insurance weekly payments of $600 those expired last week, while Republicans wanted that closer to $200 weekly And another major gap comes down to a two state and local governments, which are facing very tough financial pictures. Democrats wanna divert nearly a trillion dollars. They're Republicans have so far only focused on aid for schools at around $100 billion. President Trump says he's been a move forward on his own. If Congress doesn't act. What do we know we're in for about what he's considering? So he did indeed say this last night without a deal, he's going to issue a Siri's of executive orders to try and address economic relief. White House officials set Friday is a bit of a deadline to do this and move forward with this plan. He blamed Democrats for the lack of progress. Let's take a listen to what he told reporters. Tragically, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer continue to insist on radical left wing policies. That have nothing to do with the general virus, nothing to do with it at all. So there you hear him blame Democrats, but they would counter that it was the Republicans who wouldn't negotiate Democrats offered to shave a trillion dollars off their planet was at three trillion when they started. Republicans, they said, should come up a trillion. They started at the Trillion dollar mark. But they've said that's a nonstarter to get into the $2 trillion range because they're worried about the spending. So we're kind of in a wait and see mode on exactly how these executive orders could address. These concerns were from eviction moratoriums to jobless benefit payments and a lot of Americans. They're waiting on the enhanced unemployment insurance. What happens next with that and negotiations more broadly? So we're looking at a real impasse on Capitol Hill in that failure to act may have political ramifications for both sides and is the economic costs billed in the coming days and weeks. Perhaps that fuels a new urgency for Congress. We shall see, meanwhile, were very much in the dark. How far these executive orders could goad. Trump doesn't have the power of the purse. Congress does When asked he wouldn't elaborate how he would find the money to fuel a program. It's going to cost a lot of money. Congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me. Florence rig. Nate is a surgical nurse who's eager to get back to work in these stressful times. But the hospital where she works, has barred her from returning because of the Corona virus. May have something to do with her age. Lawrence Rigney joins us now from Tacoma, Washington. Is Rigney. Thanks for being with us. I'm happy to be here and forgive me for asking. But how old are you? I'm 90 side. Now I tell people I'm 59. Well, you convinced me and and I believe you are the oldest working nurse in America, right? Why am I gather you call the hospital to ask when you can come back. What do they tell you? I called this week I had thought maybe I would go back in the month of August, but it seems so The cold cases are increasing in our area. And it is here that it was officially good idea. I'm told you you've been a nurse for more than 70 years, right? Well, I graduated in 1946 so.

"Well, Twitter has taken a much more aggressive approach than Facebook, especially lately, and it's really crack down on the president. It's put fact checks warning labels on some of his posts, and it also even blocked his son, Donald Trump Jr. From tweeting after he broke similar rules about spreading Corona virus missed information. So you know, I think we're just going to see have more of the stuff happened before the election. What are we hearing from the Trump campaign about all of this? Well, the campaign sent out a public statement saying, Look, the president was stating a fact he was merely saying the Children are less susceptible to the disease, even though to be very clear. That's not exactly what he said on Fox News. Campaign also accused the social media platforms of being biased against conservatives. And that's something we hear from a lot of conservatives. It's not particularly backed up by evidence. But I think you know, look it. Just look at how the Trump campaign reacted yesterday when they were blocked from tweeting. It quickly removed the tweet with this video after it lost those privileges. That's an admission that this campaign really needs Twitter. You know, we no social media and in this day and age is already critical to reaching voters with a pandemic. It's even more clear. This is a campaign going to be fought online.

Hacking Your Leadership

Is it possible to have too much humility?

"Our for this week's episode talk about something a little on the personal side for me? I want to talk about humility. Some personality traits fall into the more is better category. Meaning you should always strive to be more or have more of them things that conscientiousness and kindness other traits can be more accurately placed on a bell curve. Means a right amount and having too little or too much can be a problem. Things like empathy and inclusion fall into this category. Yes seriously you probably know someone to work with. Someone who over index on empathy they carry the emotional burdens of other so deeply could it hinders their own ability to function accomplish tasks need to learn how to compartmentalize more. You probably work with someone who's to inclusive they'll reschedule a meeting because one of the eight people who were supposed is to attend can no longer make it instead of just catching that person up in a different way. Humility falls into this category to. There's a right amount of humility to have and it's something I've personally swung the pendulum on very wide in both directions in my own life. When I was in my late teens and early twenties I was told several times by leaders and Co workers that I needed to keep my ego in check and it was hard? I repeatedly received accolades for doing things while at work and often went to my head and because they didn't really need to rely on my co workers for any of my success. It was easy to act like an island in and strut around. Like I knew I was good looking back. I don't think I was any worse than can be expected of any young person. New to the workforce being told they're really good at what they do but nevertheless started to take on leadership roles these for positive impact my ability to my job a lot more than I didn't have people putting up to me then. One day I came across a quote that would become my favorite of all time former president. Harry Truman once said it's amazing what you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit. I'm not sure why this resonated with me but it did. I started contemplating all the effort I put into. I'm not the work itself but in a making sure everyone knew I was the one who did it. I then started thinking about how much more can accomplish a fight instead. Put the effort into the work itself. It required a ton of disciplined for several years. But the fact that I saw results interpersonal relationships with my peers and my direct reports was motivating and more than half the time ended up getting credit for my compliments. Anyway just through to the work of someone else bringing light to it rather than myself. Over time I went from pretending I didn't care who got the credit for my efforts to actually not caring who got the credit. It was free by the time I had more than a decade in the workforce. I started seeing that on a long enough time line. The people who matter will always eventually figure out which employees are working hard. and which ones aren't that. It wasn't about any single Action or project or outcome but rather the entirety of the contribution. Each person makes I believe this. Evolution was necessary my life and I believe it has served me well. But it's a double edged sword an English too far in the opposite direction years ago I found myself in a position where the majority of the work was remote. It had a fair amount of travel. But when I wasn't traveling I was able to work from home. I I saw my family. A Lot. Didn't have to say not many things and I still got my work done. Every project has gone was completed correctly and I believe I did some really great work during those years but one day out of the blue I was told my position was being eliminated. I was being let go. I was shocked. There was no explanation of the position was going away. I asked specifically if there was a performance issue and I was told there wasn't wasn't I was a little hurt and a lot surprised but I moved onto the next phase of my career about a year after this happened. I ran into a former coworker from this job. And we reminisced a little emotionally. Personally I'd long moved on so I asked her pointedly. She'd heard anything of the time about one position but eliminate or if there was anything that had been kept from me. She said very candidly that. No one on the team of people who I made. The decision had any idea what I did there that for several months a few people even opined whether I did any work at all I was blown away. Actually not us being dramatic I started listing off all the projects excite spearheaded and completed on my own. Just in the last six months I was there. She knew about all of them but didn't know they were my work. I gun so far in the opposite direction of making sure that everyone saw my accomplishments events that I realized I'd failed to do any self promotion at all. The project that completed were attributed to others in the office who weren't remote and whose faces were visible by their coworkers. Every day it it was a huge hard lesson for me. I'd spent so much time working on making sure. No one saw me as a person who hogged the spotlight that succeeded in making sure no one saw me at all and when it comes to your workplace this is just as bad place to be. I've done some serious soul-searching over the years since this happened and I still have a very difficult time with self promotion when I make an attempt. It always feels like I'm bragging but I'm getting better. I'll continue to get better. The right balance is important companies. Face it all the time when it comes to corporate social responsibility if it organizations constantly touting the plays at saving the planet potential customers believe. They're only doing those things to get the credit rather than because they actually care and this impacts every individual to as leaders continued to be expected to do more or with less as they find themselves with more and more people in their charge more and more people whose development is their responsibility it will become more commonplace for leaders to miss many of the contributions made by their people. They'll see the work but they wanna who made it happen unless someone tells them sometimes it will be your responsibility to make sure others know what your contribution is other times. You'll be able to trust that. Things work themselves out either way remember that while humility is incredibly important it can come with undesired outcomes when taken too far

That's impressed upon official documents such as treaties and commissions the precise design of the presidential seal was detailed an executive order ninety-six forty-six issued in October of Nineteen forty-five by President Harry S Truman. It's specified that the seal depict an American Eagle that's holding ending an olive branch in its right Talon and a bundle of thirteen arrows to symbolize the original thirteen states and it's left while clutching in it's big a white scroll inscribed with the motto Eh Pluribus Unum Latin for out of many one behind and above the Eagle.

US presidents decided that like the British monarch. They needed their own personal coat of arms as well. We spoke by email with Matthew Castello senior historian for the White House Historical Association. He said that the great seal quote was the official symbol of the United States federal government not the office of the Presidency Eh as such some president simply used the great seal while others thought that the president should have their own distinct seal. Castilla explains at least several throw presidents in the eighteen hundreds created their own seals incorporating. Whatever flourishes appeal to them James K polk for example used his own seal on the proclamation of war against against Mexico in eighteen forty six Millard fillmore came up with his own slightly different version which he sent to Maryland Postmaster engraver Edward Stabler to make in eighteen fifty Lincoln used a personalized seal as well.

He's work had removed emplaced elsewhere in the White House during World War Two President Franklin Roosevelt who was fascinated with insignia asked experts to redesign the presidential seal they came up with the idea of adding ring of stars to represent.

These efforts continue today. The school was dedicated in nineteen ninety when douglas was one hundred years old and still going strong along with her book.

How Has the Korean War Changed History?

"On June twenty-fifth nineteen fifty North Korean tanks rolled across the thirty eighth parallel the line that separated communist North Korea from US-backed South Korea, as a now, declassified US intelligence cable from Tokyo to Washington concluded, the incursion wasn't just a mere raid, quote the size of the North Korean forces employed, the depth of penetration the intensity of the attack and the landings made miles south of the parallel on the east coast indicated that the North Koreans are engaged in all out offensive to subjugate, South Korea. It was the start of a war that is still not ended a full seven decades later. The Korean war, which ultimately would pit the US against China in the first ever, confrontation between the two superpowers would claim the lives of an estimated two point five million military members and civilians including nearly thirty four thousand Americans the fighting would cease with an armistice on July twenty seventh nineteen fifty three but the Geneva conference of nineteen fifty four failed to produce a peace treaty in the north and south remained tense enemies, and that's the way things have pretty much continued, though in twenty eighteen North Korean dictator Kim Jong UN and South Korean president Mundi een announced that they would work together toward a peace treaty. But after the collapse of February summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong those tensions seemed likely to remain for a while longer. In the US the Korean war is sometimes called the forgotten war, because it's overshadowed by the conflicts that came before, and after it the stirring victory of World War Two, and the lengthy, painful ordeal of the Vietnam war. We spoke with Edward roads. A professor on the faculty of the shar school of policy and government at George Mason University in Fairfax Virginia, who's an expert in American foreign, and national security policy. He said modern Americans don't think about it much. Vietnam was more dramatic. And World War Two is more in victorious. Nevertheless, the overlooked conflict has exerted a powerful influence that still felt today according to roads, the war forever changed the course of US foreign, and national security policy. Compelling the US to accept a permanent military involvement around the globe, even in peacetime. It also helped drive, the creation of a vast US nuclear arsenal to deter possible, communist aggression with the threat of annihilation and a global nuclear arms race. Still continues all this happened, according to roads after career. A nation that had been occupied by the Japanese from nineteen ten to nineteen Forty-five was split into two by the US, and the USSR after World War Two, he explains, it was a practical matter. There were Japanese armies that had retreated into Korea from insurer, and they needed to be disarmed. We split that large task with the Soviet Union the understanding that the Soviets would design the Japanese in the north, and we would do it in the south, but as the Cold War developed between the US and its European allies and the Soviets, the temporary partition turned into a permanent one with the formation of a communist regime headed by Kim Il Sung in the north at an authoritarian pro American government headed by Sigmund, e in the south each regime sought self as the real government of Korea and its rival as illegitimate. Kim Il Sung decided to settle the matter by invading South Korea. And in may nineteen fifty finally obtained reluctant approval from his patron these stallion regime about a month later. Kim launched a surprise attack which initially had devastating result. What's the South Korean forces essentially dissolved the UN Security, Council taking advantage of a Soviet boycott of the body, then passed a measure, calling for member nations to assist the beleaguered South Koreans that mandate enabled US president Harry Truman to respond militarily without having to go to congress for a declaration of war. Up until that point, the US hadn't seen South Korea's having much strategic importance erode said, but when the North Korean tanks rolled across the border, the image that flashed in Truman's mind was that this was a repeat of what the Nazis did his responses to stand up thinking that if we had stood up to Hitler early on the world would have been a better place, an outnumbered contingent of UN forces formed, a desperate line of defense around the only part of South Korea, not yet, captured by the communists and managed to hold off the invaders for two months that gave General Douglas MacArthur, who had been placed in overall command of the UN forces enough time to make an audacious and fibia landing at Inchon near the South Korean capital of Seoul on September fifteenth. Nineteen fifty cutting off the over extended North Koreans MacArthur's forces chased the invaders back north across the thirty eighth parallel and by mid October had captured the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, but MacArthur overconfident kept pushing the North Koreans back to the Yellow River the border with China, China. Responded with a massive counterattack of between thirteen thousand and three hundred thousand troops. This time it was the UN forces who were driven back a bloody stalemate on the ground developed as the US pounded North Korea from the air MacArthur, eventually was relieved of his command by Truman and replaced with general Matthew Ridgway. The US abandoned the idea of total victory and shifted to a holding action against the communist forces road said MacArthur embraced the idea that there's no substitute for victory. You beat the enemy, and they surrender. But Rhodes explained after the Chinese intervention, quote, we're still in a situation where there's got to be a substitute for victory because how are we going to fight the manpower of China? There's a realization that we can't fight this war to victory and it's hard for the American people to accept. The longer. The war stretched on the more popular it became back in the US, many of the soldiers sent to Korea where reservists who had served in World War, Two roads, explained they've got homes and families and jobs, and then they were called up and sent to fight another war. There was a feeling that this wasn't fair. Eventually Truman successor president. Dwight Eisenhower ran on a promise that he would go to Korea and seek an end to the conflict and actually did that a month before his inauguration in nineteen Fifty-three. But though, Eisenhower had ended the fighting the Korean war still shaped his policies road said, Eisenhower looked at this as the wrong war at the wrong time using the wrong weapons, he reaches the conclusion that with the Cold War going on with the Soviets, we have to plan for the long haul. We're going to sustain this kind of military deterrence that led to resources being pumped into the development of a massive nuclear deterrent. The could be used to contain the Soviets. Additionally, Eisenhower began attempting to form licenses with more and more countries in an effort to create a unified front to hold off communist aggression. We also spoke via Email with Charles k Armstrong, the Korea foundation professor of Korean studies in the social sciences at Columbia University. He said, the US was forced to take China more. Seriously as a military power. After fighting twist del mate in the Korean war general MacArthur, had severely underestimated the Chinese military's willingness to confront the US and capacity to fight leading to a bad route for you, enforces, the initial months after China entered the war. China's participation in the Korean war. Also consolidated malls rule and asked the hopes of sub Americans. The communist regime could be rolled back and replaced by Changcai checks nationalists. Armstrong said mouse willingness to support the North Koreans directly as opposed to stallions reluctance helped solidify China North Korean relations, and caused the North Koreans to be more distrustful of the Russians for the US China was seen from the Korean war onward as the primary ally of North Korea. And the primary great power that was an enemy of the US in Korea. Armistice, ended the fighting but North Korea now backed by the Chinese remained as a belligerent enemy to South Korea, the ongoing threatment that US forces couldn't just withdrawn come home Armstrong, notes, the North Korean invasion in the emerging Cold War convinced American policymakers that the US needed a permanent military presence in Asia and Europe in order to contain communist aggression. Additionally, the Korean war helped set the table for another even bloodier, and more painful future conflict, according to Armstrong Korea led directly to the US decision to help the French against communist led insurgency in colonial Vietnam, and then after the French defeat to intervene in support of an anti communist regime in South Vietnam, which blocked an election called for by the nineteen fifty four Geneva conference that helps set the stage for the Vietnam war. Armstrong, said the most lasting legacy of the Korean war for the US was these stablishment of a global military presence over the long term and a commitment to confront communism throughout the world during the Cold War. And for Korea and East Asia ideological and military confrontation that has lasted seven decades that included a US force stationed in South Korea as a deterrent to North Korea, which in turn has a massive array of long range, artillery, and rockets equipped with chemical and biological weapons aimed at Seoul. That's in addition to the nuclear weapons and ballistic missile arsenal. The Trump so far has been unable to persuade the North Korean regime to give up.

"Years of Japanese occupation. But with that newfound freedom old wounds. Reopened the civil war between the communists and the nationalists resumed. You had a government, led by John shocked in the nationalists, that was trying to very, very tenuously reestablished control over the Chinese mainland. At the same time you had the communists who are based in city called Yunan in the northwest of China remote city that were challenging the nationalist for control. Beyond China, the world, not yet split along the ideological lines of capitalism, versus communism. Instead there was a two year interlude, which has been largely forgotten according to historian, Daniel Kurtz, Phelan. We tend to look back at history, retrospectively and see immediately jumping from World War, Two to the Cold War, and what we forget, is that there's this amazing period where the world is really unsettled and people don't quite know how it's gonna go. And there's a tremendous amount of damage from the war of uncertainty about how global politics gonna shape out. President Harry Truman was worried. So he decided to send General George Marshall to China on what the newspapers at the time described as the most difficult diplomatic mission anywhere in the world. And he calls up Marshall one day after Marshall's retirement and says, general need one last favor of you. I need you to get a ceasefire between the national communists who are starting to fight. I need you to lay the groundwork for a Chinese democracy.

"One eight six six five eight two nine nine three three. You know? We just got off on this deep state. Nope, didn't planet. Just started rolling with it. And asking the question who is the deep state. If anybody can tell me who the deep state is I greatly. Appreciate a phone call. And then I would ask them what the deep state is responsible for that. The president hasn't already initiated. And I'm sure there's things that they still mean to implement and initiate friends. No doubt about it. But I want you to tell me who the deep state is. Because they they have Americans chasing shadows. Do I believe there's people behind closed doors calling representatives what to do? Yes. Special interest groups their controllers. No question about it. Trying to bring about a new world order government, just like that of the globalist Donald Trump. Yeah. No question about it. There's no question about it. And it's interesting friends. You got this long out in the middle of nowhere preaching out against the masses are preaching to false prophets false teachers corrupt politicians, the CIA controlled media that lies to you. But yet somehow or another you haven't caught onto the fact that they were the one that gave Donald Trump everything he needed to get to the seat of power. Wow, america. Whoa. You have is. But you see not you have ears. But you hear not who is the deep state. One eight six six five eight two nine nine three three hundred eighty one more segment, and I'm going to get over to what I wanted to talk about during the second hour concerning Voltaire death bed. Confessions. I want to tell you who the deep state is. And it's and it's funny to me that there's so many people. Trying to submit themselves to something that they can't see. And by the way, you have a lot of guys on the radio trying to get you to bow and subject yourselves to the fear in consequence of man, rather than the fear of God to stand up and do something about it in combat it. Get away from those guys real fast. Did you forgive friends that? The word of God, declares the heaven is my throwing the earth my footstool Isaiah sixty six verse one. Did you forget that? The Lord is the governor of nations. Did you forget the kingdom's are the Lord's? And he is the governor among the nation's psalm twenty two verse twenty eight. Hey, folks, he's the one that sits on his throne in beholds, the good and the evil everywhere at the same time. He's the one that said aspera will not fall to the ground without notice. He knows the very numbers of the hairs on your head. That's how ni- in. He is onto you that you can call upon him in all things the bible tells us. And yet you're afraid of some unknown force are there. Yeah. There's no question that they are there. There's no question about it. But I'm already telling you who they are. They're right in front of your face doing what you would call the deep states biddings just their controllers just who they're working for and just keep in mind does that they're working for them people. They are working for the enemy of their souls. And I'm going to be getting to that in just a couple minutes, France. And this will correlate exactly concerning what I'm going to be talking about in just a couple of minutes. Folks, not only is the Lord in control of all things and that he has his way in the World War world wind may who won three understand this. He also uses the wicked forest purposes when chasing his people as well as judging the nation's the reason being is people have failed to adhere to his warnings, Jeremiah twenty six or twenty seven verse six forgive me. And this is where America's today, the wicked are being used to chastise into judge this country in stages because the Christians are derelict of duty when it comes to keeping his commandments. Deuteronomy four six Levesque's twenty six fourteen through forty six Deuteronomy twenty eight fifteen through sixty eight. That's that's all that's happening here in your country friends. Let me take it to something. I was talking about during the last hour. During the Nuremberg trials the criminals that operated on the behalf of Adolf Hitler. You know, it's interesting how they everybody. Just demonizing Adolf Hitler. And it's also interesting to note that the the media on a global scale fails to tell the people the crimes that man was responsible for. It's apps, and that's that's another show. But, but it's interesting how it was the people that worked for Adolf Hitler that were on trial. For those that didn't know there was nobody ever produced concerning Adolf Hitler. But going to the Nuremberg trials with. Understanding the criminals of the past and again, the atrocities of Adolf Hitler and his subordinates those that did is bidding for him. Did you know that in one thousand nine forty four or forty five? Forgive me president Harry Truman said at the beginning of the court proceedings. This is the first thing he said, this is the president the laws of God. And man have been violated and the guilty must not go on punished. I wanna later your candor. Can you imagine if eighty million people in Germany dealt with the first? Criminal acts of that of Adolf Hitler. Can you imagine if they'd put it to a stop right when he started to act out as the criminal that he was? The bible tells us in other words, exactly what I'm gonna coin here concerning this phrase prevention is better than cure. Prevention is better than here. If these people would have dealt with Adolf Hitler, there would've been no mass genocide. Period. And what we hear today in this country. Is we wait for it to happen before we respond to it? And if we don't respond to what we just kick a little bit. And then when we see our oppressors come down on us. We just run the other direction. Cowards. Cowards. But not everybody's going down that road. Because if you go back to the Adolf Hitler's in the days of Adolf Hitler's keep in mind folks, there is people that were trying to deal with Adolf Hitler. But at that point was going to have his way, and he did because the people refused to keep the commandments in dealing with corruption in the first place. They didn't want to listen to God. They didn't wanna keep his commandments and dealing with corruption again, then then guess what? What what? What ensues shortly thereafter, the people subjecting themselves to that tyrant. And how did that work out while they had Nuremberg trials? The head Nuremberg trials. The laws of God is the first thing. President Harry Truman said were violated. The laws of God. Yep. Because if they were dealt with according to what God said to do when dealing and in dealing with criminals, Adolf Hitler would have been dealt with right off the bat the laws of God men have been violated and the guilty must not go.
