The Decline of America's Military With Captain Henry Hendrix (Ret.)
"Given that huge breadth of experience in the navy in The Pentagon, reviewing the history of the United States Navy, what is the state of the U.S. Navy today? We're largely broken. The navy is too small for the task that it has been assigned. And we can see this in that the combatant commanders, the regional combat commanders, demand about a 110 ships to be forward deployed in any given moment. And in fact, we only have 298. And so we're talking about per combatant command. No, no. Total worldwide. Reagan's was what Reagan's navy was 600. 600 ships. And at that time, we maintain a 150 ships out at sea at any given moment. Serving, doing naval presence missions, power projection and everything. So right now, that's what we have total. Yeah, we have 298 total in the fleet. Serving at any one time? Yeah. And so that's why we broke in the fleet. So we didn't have enough time given the demands for all the ships to be four deployed to properly maintain them at home or train their crews. And so if you remember back to 2017, when we had three collisions and a grounding result in the deaths of American sailors at sea, it was largely because we weren't being able to do all this at home cycle because we were under demand to be forward and today we've decreased the number of ships that are forward deployed. But what that's done is created power vacuums in places like the South China Sea that other nations have stepped into to fill like China with the building of the artificial islands and so on. So really it's this decline of the navy that's invited this competition that we're seeing at sea right now.
Who Is Missouri Gubernatorial Candidate Eric Greitens?
"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast, the former governor of Missouri, now candidate for the U.S. Senate, Eric greitens Eric served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He's a United States Navy seal. And boy, look at this resume. This is a guy who fortune magazine is recognized as one of the 50 greatest leaders in the world. He's a marathon runner. He's a boxer. He's a black belt in taekwondo. Eric, you are my gosh. Let's just say that you are a renaissance man. And here you are in the political world. You've taken a lot of hits, but you're standing strong. Let's talk a little bit. I want people to get to know you a little better, so who is Eric greitens? Well, dinesh, look, I'm a guy who because I care is willing to fight for people who I love. You know, one of the things that we talked about in the seal teams was overcoming fear. And people recognize that, of course, you need courage to overcome fear, but I often remind people that courage is rooted in love, right? You actually look at the etymology. It comes from the French word core remaining hard. It's because we love our country because we love our community because we love our fellow citizens because we love the men and women who we serve with, that we are willing to act with courage. And I think right now when we look at where the country is at, it requires courage of every citizen. Every citizen needs to look at what's happening around us and say, you know what? I love my country. I love my community, and I'm willing to stand up and to fight for it.
Robert Wilkie on the Innate Goodness of the USA
"So I haven't rehearsed this with you. And I hope you will indulge me as secretary wilkie. I need to talk about what happened in Texas last week. Because I think it feeds into what you've done for a living. It feeds into the fact that you've worn two uniforms of this nation's military. And what I tweeted out 5 days ago is a very simple observation. Why is anybody surprised? If you attack faith if you attack the family unit, if you say that masculinity is a bad thing, nobody should be surprised whether it's Parkland, whether it's this instance, and you validate the fact is talking to you, it occurs to me the other thing I should have added to that list, when we have the new society of any sense of the innate value of service to something greater than oneself, if we live in an area or era of hedonism for 20 somethings purposelessness, then this will happen again and again and again, would it not? Well, let's say I had one more point. Yes. The innate goodness of the United States of America. Exactly. The only country in the history of the world to offer a helping hand to all of the peoples of the world, including her enemies. And yet we are subjected, our children are subjected to the Howard zinn version of American history. Which has become dominant in higher education. Higher education and in The White House. Yes. You know, somebody asked me about problems with desertion and recruitment, particularly in the United States Navy. Well, I took that to the entire armed forces. What do you expect? When these children are taught that America is the font of all evil, that it is a repressive society. That it has a bludgeoned other people's in order to gain wealth. What do you expect? When they are taught this from day
Getting to Know Gerald Ford, the 38th President of the United States
"Let's dig in. This was a speech that was given by Gerald Ford president of the United States in 1977. It was January. It was his State of the Union, and I think he went ahead and took it to the State of the Union because Gerald Ford has an interesting perspective of being the only person ever to serve as president. And vice president, both, and never be elected to those offices. He was a member of the House of Representatives when Spiro Agnew resigned from the vice president. He was appointed by Richard Nixon to become vice president after Richard Nixon resigned. He taking again through the Twenty-fifth Amendment became president of the United States. So he serves as the only person to have ever served as president of this country without actually being elected. We've had some who have ascended to those roles, but if they actually served, if they serve later, they were actually president, but this was one in which he was actually appointed to the vice president's role, not elected to that vice president's role. So in moving up, it makes it makes an interesting anomaly in history. But it also sort of fits one Gerald Ford. If you look into his background, you look into where he came from. He's a midwesterner, raised in mission, Grand Rapids, went to school at the University of Michigan, played football there was a star football player. In fact, one two national titles there undefeated football teams at the University of Michigan after that went to Yale law school and then served in the United States Navy during World War II came out and began his service in the United States House where he served over 25 years before he was picked to be vice president and president.

"Kurt Schneider. Welcome to one on one. Thanks for having me, doctor gorka. This is a subject you're a dear to my heart. I'm writing my new book fallen rise of America. And I'm writing about a lot of this stuff as we speak. A perfect perfect segue before we get to the fall and rise of America, the maga movement America first for those who are some strange reason aren't familiar with the good colonel his background where he hails from what he did before he became a media personality. Will you share in a nutshell your bio for us, please? What your parents did, what you did in uniform for the republic and what you do today. Well, let's go back to 150 years till my to my German family was kicked out of stutt by popular demand came over here to settle and Pennsylvania, some more Germans followed. There's also a house station in there, plus some Scott. My parents are both very quintessential pennsylvanians. And it's very interesting. Both of my grandparents were high school and college coaches in Pennsylvania, both of them joined the United States navy during World War II over age, both of them were sent to the Pacific where they both ran fighter pilot recreation camps in the Pacific. So that's kind of weird but kind of shows. I just stopped there for a second. I know the ilk of the fighter pilot Corey World War II running a recreational facility for them. That must have been quite interesting because there must be some interesting family
Rep. Michael Waltz: Our Money Is Funding the Threat of Communist China
"America needs a wake-up call An American people need to wake up to the fact and just a couple of data points The Chinese navy is now larger than the United States Navy More ships and newer ships They are launching more into space than the rest of the world combined including the United States They're on track to have a separate space station and a manned station on the moon Within the next decade that will all be militarized and prepared to attack the United States And just don't take it from us mark or even from me listen to president Z speeches where he has openly talking about replacing the United States as a global leader replacing capitalism and democracy with their form of socialism and communism as a superior system And they just launched a hypersonic weapon that is a first strike nuclear weapon that we can't defend against but the thing that has me so damn mad is they're doing it with our money It's our money that is funding their military build up their debt diplomacy their belt and road initiative or they're taking up power grids and ports and airports all over the world And between Wall Street between Hollywood between the sports industry our trade deficit which president Trump knew and got on top of it is historians are going to look back and say the American people and the American tax dollars funded their greatest adversaries So my call to action to so many is if you see made in China put it down I've reached out to my financial adviser and told them to divest I get us out of investing into the Chinese economy But we have a long way to

Admiral Michael M. Gilday Defends Racist Critical Race Theory for U.S. Navy
"Admiral Department of Defense undertook the stand down because they understand that extremism detracts from military readiness. So if sailors except Candies argument that America and the United States Navy are fundamentally racist. As you've encouraged them to do. Do you expect that to increase or decrease morale and cohesion or even recruiting into the United States? Navy? I do know this. Our strength is in our diverse Nobody said our strength is in our diversity You smell If our strength is in our diversity, Why are you proposing racist reading material? For our Navy. Candy. This is amazing. Kenny doesn't believe our strength is in our diversity. This is Marxism. They don't believe in diversity of thought. Diversity of anything If you disagree with them, whatever your race. Here is the enemy. He doesn't believe in diversity. In fact, as I've explained before it as well discuss much greater length in about three weeks. They reject Martin Luther King. They reject the civil rights movement. They reject Brown versus Board of Education. That's what Derek Bell taught. One of the more modern So called icons of critical race theory. And this admiral is pushing this pushing it.

"It wrong and our admiral, I remain astonished with this book on a reading list and recommended that every sailor in the United States Navy read it. I'm also surprised that you said you, you read it. But I'm glad you brought up this point you, sir, because it seems pretty unlikely based on your inability to defend it. The Department of Defense Admiral Department of Defense undertook the stand down because they understand that extremism detracts from military readiness. So if sailors except Kendis argument that America and the United States Navy are fundamentally racist, as you've encouraged them to do, right Do you expect that to increase or decrease morale and cohesion or even recruiting into the United States? Navy? I do know this. Notice. He's not answering the question again. Strength is in our diversity. What? What a bumper sticker. That's your answer to that. And our sailors understand that Race is a very racism in the United States is a very complex issue. What we benefit from is an open discussion about those issues that we don't try to ignored or rewrite it. But we actually have a discussion about it, and they will be various views. And I trust sailors will come and to an understanding of hopefully separating from fact from fiction, agreeing or disagreeing with candy in this case and come to hopefully very useful conclusions. About how we ought to treat each other in the United States. Admiral. Why did you put this book on the reading list and recommended that every single United States sailor read it because I think it's really important to consider a variety of views. Admiral, You said. You read this book..
Project Sealab 1 Summary Report - Part 1
"Way back in the nineteen sixties when i was growing up most of us were intently focused on the space race in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. The united states was making the transition from the mercury program to the gemini program and there really wasn't allowed manned spaceflight going on that year but there was another amazing exploration going on in interspace natwest project lab. One well i didn't know a great deal about c. lab until i started doing some research for the segment. I did hear on the show about scott carpenter. I did read. Ben held hells worst book about c. lab and that gave me a really good understanding of the magnitude of the entire c. Lab project both one two and three. And as i was doing more research i came across a report from the office of navel research. And it's the project sea labs summary report so today. I wanna start two part series on this report in part one today. I'll take you through the report up until the c. Lab one habitat is placed in position and then in part to a couple of weeks from now will review the mission some of the findings and conclusions by the project sea labs. Some report is subtitled. An experimental eleven day undersea saturation dive at one. Hundred and ninety three feet and report is dated june fourteenth nineteen sixty five for anyone looking for the report you might want to search on n r report. Ac are one zero eight. It's not that long to sixty two pages now. The copy. I got had a stamp on the cover. Then indicated. hard copies of the report would cost three dollars while microfiche would be seventy five cents and the copy was also stamped. Archived copy of this report are ha o.'neil from the office of navel research. Gif bond captain united states navy from the united states naval medical research. Laboratory are eland. Fear lieutenant commander. Us n. office of navel research and t odum of the mind defense laboratory in the preface pen by rear admiral. Leighton he says project sea lab one was the navy's first step into space. He also states that this report is being published by the navy so that all may share the information it is interesting to note that the background section of the report the authors do reference the work being done by captain shot cousteau and mr edwin a link and that was on their man in the sea concept they they stated indeed. The navy seems to be left at the post by the well-publicized efforts of captain cousteau and mr link. So it sounds like there's a little bit of sour grapes. Their report goes on to describe a december nineteen sixty three conference with the navy's bureau of ships where they obtained support for a c. lab now at that conference. They decided that the mine defense laboratory would build a habitat needed to select a location and they had five critique criteria for the selection one was the prospect of good weather too was good visibility. Three was a level bottom for was moderate water. Temperatures at depth and five was the general features of ocean graphic and marine biology biological interest. Now the site that they selected was argus island off of bermuda by march of nineteen sixty four all the appropriate approvals were obtained and they were often running and the operations were supposed to be conducted in the summer of one thousand nine hundred sixty four now. The mine defense laboratory selected an old experimental minesweeping float. Now the report has quite a few pictures and illustrations in it. Unfortunately the pictures are really not that great because of this. Pdf being produced either from a microphone. Show old old dot copiers but the stations are pretty good. Particularly the architectural drawings of c. lab won both the plan view and the cross section views by marched by may nineteen sixty four. C. lab was ready for sea trials off panama city. Florida on may twenty second nineteen sixty four. It was towed out to sea and sank uncontrolled and flooded over half full of seawater. Fortunately there were no injuries. The habitat was lifted. Towed back dried out and ready for another try on may twenty six this time with success. The previous incident was attributed to a misunderstanding of line handling waters by july. They were in bermuda and ready to sink. C. lab on july fourteenth. They again had issues because of the three to five foot swells and the yard patrol boat that they were using just wasn't powerful enough like chief brody said in jaws. I think you're gonna need a bigger boat. Well in this case. It was a crane that they took from bermuda. The reach the report details the adventure of getting c. lab on the bottom but they finally did an after getting everything hooked up and twenty four hour checkout on monday july twentieth. One thousand nine hundred sixty four at seventeen thirty five. That's five thirty five pm for you. Civilians c. lab one was manned by robert e. less anderson robert a barth sanders w manning and robert e thompson. Now what were the conditions like on c. lab interesting. The report says see lab proper dry inhabitable atmosphere satisfactory temperatures. Seventy eight degrees chilly. Water supply water not available heaters operable. Tv monitor not hooked up properly. Hot water heaters not operating refrigerator not operating co two scrubbers satisfactory. Electro writer. Satisfactory calibrated microphones not functioning. Crass burgo two meters satisfactory lights satisfactory. So you can see. There was still a lot of things that needed to be repaired. So i had to do was fixed everything that wasn't working and then complete their mission so in part to this series i'll take you through the mission the findings and conclusions from project sea lab some report of nineteen sixty five americas first journey into interspace. And that will be next time here on scuba shack

"You starting to get there. Can you remember what that was. Yes so in dental school. When i master taking oral exams and dr goblets told me a little trick of covering the multiple choice and writing the answer all of a sudden. I went from failing every single midterm to graduating from dental school. It's like it just started clicking and residency was the same way in just so people know in residency programs especially in the military. There was three branches of service army air force navy which they all have their own culture. I was the only female in the program. And i had faculty that didn't care how early in the morning late at night. It was like drinking out of a fire. It was a whole new way of learning. But i remembered once it clicked that i remember material when i say it out loud or put in different colors. It was just like oh my gosh. That was like the missing link and it just felt so good. It felt like all that hard work all that blood sweat and tears along the way really made a difference. And and i've had it in different points inven- training giving any pageants or you know facing A leadership hurdle and. it's also learned to be very introspective. You if you ask for people's opinions astra people so be prepared. They're going to be really critical of you. And you know what you just gotta sit there and listen as hard as you want to jump in and say. Oh well. I had this going on life or know i was not feeling one hundred now. Just take him because you know what they are taking time to help. You be better and that to me is huge. It's when your credit stop talking to. That's when i kind of get worried. Like do they not care or something more speed doing you know it. it's tough. I love it when people can give me some really great constructive criticism and makes me feel like. They want me to do better. And i want to do better. Yeah it's beautifully said and it's and it's i think it's such a strong and solid remind you such great way of articulating The message that i'm trying to get out of you there in in the answer. That question beautifully. I just think that you shoot the human mind and your potential as an individual is boundless. You have so much and so much to give but you seem to be constrained by all of these outside influences in the world and like you said when you when the penny dropped for you and you were just you were learning and you will just reciting combination units. Bang bang bang. It's such an empowering feeling to have that. I think we forget as people we get caught up in the minutiae of decided i activity in life. That you are incredibly powerful creator and you can do. It doesn't matter who you are away from your education standards. You can do any think that you apply your mind to with determination application and the rotman and the right people around you you can do whatever it is that you wanna do so going all in committing to something. Yeah it can be scary yet can be really hard but whatever you apply your mind to. You can't and i think for some reason in this this world where everybody is wrapped in cotton wool. And everybody's offended by everything else. This can be forgotten thing. It's people seem to have forgotten that stole the offense in amongst all of these craziness that we have going on in our world but how many if you just concentrate on yourself you can achieve amazing things and that's a real gripe reminded that you've you've shared with us. Thank you for that if somebody was listening to you here on the front end of the podcast and they well. It's all good for you. York monitoring navy and you'll sifi down the road with your career on just kicking off. And i'm just starting if somebody's standing on the precipice of a giant commitment like you had to mike with dental school. What would you say to them to encourage them. Well if they want to go to dental school. I would tell them no. They're why know why they really wanted to do it. And make sure they re they're like totally invested into it because there's going to be a time where they're gonna wanna give up. There was times. I want to give up an anyone along. The journey is going to give up and they need something to remind themselves. And i would definitely say in residency. Some of the best advice i got was from my big sister. My big brother is that were here ahead of me is like even if you feel the the world is against you know that there is a hundred people that would give the right arm to be in that spot. There's all these people that would immediately take your spot in line and you're also getting paid more than any president of the country and accruing time and serving our military so there is all these positive things wade out that one off day or that one bad day because let's be honest. We all have rough and crazy weeks. We all have days at just winner bride. I would be lying if i was not immune to that but it's more just hey acknowledge it is what it is washed. Marlton new day. And i'm going to start on a new foot and i think that's normal. That's being human and even with covert there things at some times. Get me down. I'd be lying to say that you know every day wasn't like you know roseanne sunshine but yeah it's definitely a real thing for sure it's beautifully said one of the things that Men from all cultures all over the world and as a side issue. Of course. I caused like that especially being a mild dominated environment. A lot of guys Filed to recognize when they need to ask for help particularly when they've committed to something and the they're out there in the public. I'm going to do this. And i'm gonna win and i'm gonna and they're struggling with. It may have been embarrassing for a guy to an ego. Gets in the way where gosh are are really need some help here and often men don't know how put their hand up and ask for help when i should and often white to light if you just have offer some help and some assistance or some mental shape earlier on in the process. She'd be so much better off than where you are right now. And one of the things that i've learned and i'd love to hear your thoughts on this as well is to ask not ask for help early and often but just to have conversations often with the people that are going through the same things as you at the same time you going through them and that way. It doesn't feel like the this little thing that's happening to you right now. He's not going to snowball out of control into something. That's a real problem for you in a week's time it's a little thing. Now you can address that you can share it with one of your friends. A trusted partner. Somebody that you you can confide in. And i think that's a really sensible y to aas help particularly when things when the decision making processes hard or maybe you feel like you're egos in the line a little bit. You've got to have the right people around. Europe one hundred per se. If you show me the five people who surround with. I will show you your future and something that i always like to do for you. Know everyone that i lead is have an open door and i always ask them if they wanted to have the conversation between us versus allowing their leading petty officer. Senior enlisted leader know about it. And if they do grain if not then it stays in these walls. And i feel that when people know that their information going to be broadcast. It's not going to be shared. Sometimes they can be a bit more oddest. And i always tell people if you wanna come to me and it's about you but you don't wanna make it about you. Just say to your friend say it's a family members. Say it's a cousin. I won't know probably could really could be your brother your sister. That's going through this. You don't even have to make it about you. And i'm more always. I'm always willing to listen and kind of find a way. Because there's everything is figure out. There is nothing in this world that cannot be figured out we are in the middle of a pandemic and there's how many hundreds of exhibitions that are getting ready to be given. I mean it's just the science behind. Some of the stuff is just incredible just and honestly it took a pandemic for some of that technology right and so what does that tell you in a world. Where sometimes people also. There's always a way to figure out and no matter. How small and insignificant maybe. Yeah beautifully beautifully. Said i just wanna to pull on that leadership thread there in this segment of the show because as a commander in the united states navy. You're in a reasonably senior role there. and your as you mentioned you were department head you dealing a lot of people. Many people are in your department at the moment thirty. I believe we have a staff of seventy eight or clinic. I'd have to double check the exact numbers but it's anywhere between twenty five.

O.

The Pentagon was caught off guard by this the president's describing and responding to core behavior on the behalf of the Indians. A tweet goes out. Is that an order. I'm sure lawyers who look at whether you can shoot a boat up up because it has harassed you know we as the military have to apply that clear direction from the commander-in-chief into lawful orders that we execute vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff handled the tweet very well if you have a gun and you pointed at me. That's another thing. We know exactly what that means if you cross well the Pentagon and US forces have always had a right to self defense and the rules of engagement right now and I have been out on those ships and and seen boats from afar which they tried to de escalate but the president has sent a pretty clear message and in this time of pandemic and let's remember Iran has suffered a lot during this pandemic and lost a lot of people probably far more than we realize is Iran now willing to take that risk.

as I said the other day they've done more damage to this country then the Soviet Union more damage to this country than the Soviet Union and we have there's an expert the daily caller has an exclusive the currently corona virus experts as virus could in fact leaked from the war Han live you know Tom cotton's been talking about this on my radio show and elsewhere and anyone who raises including major dismissed as a cook you're just not allowed to pursue the fax and reported to the American people which is really what journalists are supposed to do Richard Ebright a molecular bio biologist who's been quoted as say a corona virus expert by The Washington Post and MSNBC said today yesterday that is indeed possible that the virus leak from a war Han lap and I think it did why because of

now you know why the the genocidal vicious enemy the communist regime in China I didn't want anybody to go there all right back to Gavin is Gavin Newsom sees this as an opportunity the way Clyburn does the way pelo see does weigh all the Democrats do in the way the media to to finally push this nation over the cliff into hardcore socialism and centralism when the Republicans are actually helping them with these massive budgets here's Newsome yesterday cut fourteen go I wonder if you see the potential of others argue for a new progressive if you want to call it that and national politics and policy and whether there's the opportunity for additionally progressive caps on to do the one that I listed on the national and state level going forward you know because of this crisis absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern and action put shivers up the spines of you know one party or the other I think it's an opportunity for both parties to come together and meet this moment and really start to think more systemically not situationally but just about getting out of this moment but more sustainably and systemically center where we can go together this is stored moment if we needed at a national level in the state and sub national level so answers yes yes the answer is yes ladies and gentlemen this perfect out this demonstrates progressivism fails they want us all to live in little hovels one on top of the other and yet it's the density of the population that causes a virus like this the spread so aggressively they want us all to use public transportation the fuse public transportation can't stand six feet from each other and move people from job to job place to place I thank the people who are doing the best of the ones who live for this from the city and if makers and acres and acres of land and trucks and automobiles Najin if we all lived in a place like New York City what would be going on now so to put down a New York I'm talking about the the density of the population this is the problem open borders anyone think a progressive would a shutdown travel to and from China the way the president did of course not they believe in open borders if they had the weather been ice there being a border patrol this that this would be a horrific disaster beyond even the imagination today so if anything this shows the failure progressives give me another example the governor of New York is a an aggressive radical progressive he didn't order enough ventilators when he could have ordered more would have been perfect but would have been better why because he was focused on the progressive agenda solar panels why not more bets he's focused on the progressive agenda abortion birth this is the truth redistributing wealth identity politics abortion abortion abortion in so as a consequence they're not prepared they're not better prepared and this is where progressivism Texas the Ghana health care system the only reason we're getting more ventilators and all the rest despite Peter Navarro the rest with the defense production act is because of the private sector because we actually have companies that can do these things you know we have what's called pharmaceutical companies which were supposed to hate we're supposed to hate GM of the other companies to progressives hate these companies they want fifty sixty seventy percent of their income so they can do what you know solar panels so Gavin Newsom is an idiot he shut down his entire state doctor Burks is very excited about that saying the kind of the curve has flattened out there as a result of shutting down the economy and a destroying California I don't even see them is necessarily connected to be honest with you I really don't they make these assertions I I've just anyway that's just me obviously I'm in a in a minority now after the break I wanna get the something that's been waiting and that is this FBI scandal the inspector general put out information a few days ago that's got no attention whatsoever because of the virus and also there's additional information that the late great Robert Muller I we still live at Robert Muller hid evidence according to Matt Margolis he's right exonerating don junior over the infamous trump tower meeting I mean exonerating him beyond his exoneration so you have all kinds of corrupt activity taking place which of course means we need more progressivism I'll be right back then mark Levin on talk radio six eighty I'm for it today we can use a lot more to once we walk.

U.S. Navy Ponders An Ambitious Fleet Makeover Amid Tight Budget
"President Trump's administration is expected to unveil a budget plan today under a deal with Congress last year. Defense spending would rise only slightly which leaves leaves the United States Navy a little bit caught between a tight budget and a president who would like things to be a lot bigger Jay price of our member station W. UNC reports the scene at the famous shipyard. Newport News Virginia was a naval classic United States ship John F. Kennedy God bless this this shed and all who sail in her a few months back. Caroline Kennedy Chris and ship in honor of her late father. These kinds kinds of ceremonies are becoming more frequent after decades of decline. The Navy's fleet is on the rise. This year is expected to top three hundred warships. And it's aiming for a much larger number that fifty five ship goals more than a goal. It's in the law. He was in the authorization bill several years ago and was date stated goal of the president when he ran for election in two thousand sixteen. That's Thomas Mode. Leave the acting. Secretary of the Navy warships can come with jaw-dropping Christ tags the eleven hundred foot long one hundred thousand tonne Kennedy for example costs more than thirteen billion dollars and for Moseley paying for a lot more ships. It's a challenge. That's what we're trying to figure out right now but when you look at the size of the fleet right now where it was four years ago we were at two hundred seventy five ships so getting into a fleet of three fifty five is going to require a significantly higher top line. That's a thirty percent increase in the size of the fleet. But I don't think it's reasonable for us to ask for thirty percent more top line. It's just not enough money to go around and defense to be able to fund. That Moodley says he's confident. The navy can get there but says it will have to get some additional channel funding and chew ships that cost less however it decides to reach three hundred and fifty five. There's one especially influential person who wants it to camping. Our Navy is now the smaller suspend since believe it or not World War One. Don't worry GonNa soon be the largest.

That was below at uh. Now president-elect was recommending so the Navy did a quick for structure analysis and came up with three hundred fifty five ships can't see in once led the Office of Management and Budget Division that focused on the defense budget and acquisitions. He says it's unclear. Exactly how large the fleet really should be. I think because a strong argument that the navy needs to be larger if the United States wants to execute the strategy that it has pursued since the late Obama administration ration- and then into the trump administration that is a global superpower that is engaged in Europe in the Middle East and in the Pacific. Nick also that is going to engage in a long-term competition with Russia and China. Doing those two things takes all large navy now whether that needs to be three hundred fifty five ships or not. There isn't a lot of analysis there. mody though is focused on that three hundred and fifty five five number and that would mean integrating into that fleet some ships that cost less require fewer people to man them and also helped with our overall all strategy of having distributed maritime operations with more ships out during the fleet. He says the navy can not only reach three hundred fifty five but do it ahead of schedule Joel. And without even counting the drone ships. The navy is aggressively

president making a policy decision which you have the right to do it's reaching very far down into the ranks and up ending process of accountability that the military takes very seriously when soldiers violate regulations violate the law and so what we've been hearing is that this is an example did sort of flashes of red two senior military leaders and even rank and file officers and crew that this is really damaging and obviously Tucker expense or thought it was so damaging it he had to walk away and then the question a lot of people's mind in the Pentagon is who else is gonna quit next who else is going to feel like they just can't carry out president orders anymore and I think the answer to that question probably depends on how much more the president might make similar decisions like he did in the case of the navy seal Eddie Gallagher and these two army officers to be pardoned a couple weeks ago in other words if the president continues to insert himself of some of these cases I think you're gonna see it very difficult for other military officials to not come to the conclusion that secretary Spencer that that that they need to stand up and they need to call them out for this and there's certainly people in the Pentagon talking about this I know I spoke this weekend with the motor control that you know we talk about this all the time on a philosophical level in other words what is the point at which we just can't service guy anymore and I I think they're having a lot more of those conversations I don't think that there's going to be a result of the military brass or anything like that but clearly there's a lot of green and I think the perspective of the nation demonstrates and there is a quote in your piece Bryan Bender that really gets to the essence of what you're saying here a senior administration official inside the Pentagon quote there is a sense of dejection by senior leaders in the Pentagon that the president and the secretary defense esper are going to side with the loud mouths at fox news against the reason opposition of senior military professionals right captures this mood that I described and it's interesting that this official mentioned not to for the president but secretary asper who's only been on the job official week since July and obviously he sided with the president in this particular case when the present one good evening this may be your case he is carrying out the president's orders the question is whether or not he's also losing from our allegiance or support within the ranks I think that could be determined we have been told that he's made it very clear that you might not like the president or the way he does business but he is the commander and ultimately he has the final say but I you know I think that quote does capture the sense of the president really just you know as much as he talked about how he loves general much as he talked about when he came into office how he was going to empower them to not micro manage them the way president Obama was accused of doing he really dismiss them over and over again and does not listen to their advice doesn't take it seriously and if we know you can look like a fox news which is made a big issue of the cases of the soldiers who were accused of war crimes and in this is quote is to get across the seas to listen more to the Talking Heads on fox news and he does your military professionals Bryan Bender he covers the Pentagon for politico joining us on the phone here in Washington thank you for being with us thank you there is a new U. N. report tonight sounding the alarm bells on climate change for years after countries striking a landmark deal in Paris to rein in the issue of greenhouse gas emissions the world according to this report is now heading toward the very climate catastrophe the two biggest polluters China in the United States according to the United Nations study quoted the findings are bleak because countries have failed to halt the rise in greenhouse gas emissions even after repeated warnings from scientists the result is that deeper and faster cuts are now required and the report goes on to write the world's twenty richest countries responsible for more than three fourths of the nation's must take the biggest in swift the steps to move away from fossil fuels yes even from the chairman of the house Judiciary Committee today announcing the impeachment inquiry entering a new phase congressman Jerry Nadler of New York will preside his committee the first hearing scheduled for Wednesday December the fourth also in a letter to president trump the Judiciary Committee is asking whether he plans to attend or his counsel giving the White House the deadline of next Monday six PM to respond of course you can watch the hearings live on the C. span networks and listen to it here on C. span radio and one democratic member of Congress says she no longer sees the need for impeaching the president that from a representative Brenda Lawrence saying that instead Democrats should move to century president trump in an interview on a Michigan radio station representative Lawrence saying that we are so close to an election no we have divided the country is quote I don't see the value of taking him out well on Twitter the president writing the following I would love love to have Mike Pompeii Rick Perry Nick Mulvaney and many others testify about the phony impeachment hoax it is a democratic scam that is going no where but future presidents should in no way be compromised at the state department today the question to second is it Mike Pompeii or whether he would testify follow up Sir and the president tweeted just a short while ago that he's encourage you essentially to testify in the impeachment investigation is that something you're considering when the time is right all good things happen for is that from secretary state Mike Pompeii earlier today at the state department and joining us on the phone is and merry Moshi is legal affairs reporter for The Washington Post whether it's the secretary state to the former White House counsel or any other current or former administration officials where do things stand tonight in terms of who can or will testify well this noon from judge could kanji Texan is significant because it only the second judge two ruled that top officials presidential advisers cannot ignore congressional demands for information but in some ways this is just the beginning of the District Court judge and the justice department has already appealed to the US court of appeals for the DC circuit in Washington and it seems certain that this case will end up at the Supreme Court but her opinion is specifically about former White House counsel diving again but it does have implications for other officials made what cover and want to participate and testify what are those implications the implications are she said that these advisers like McGann could not ignore a congressional order for for information differences we know that the house already would also like to speak with former national security adviser John Bolton and his former deputy Charles government and they have a separate case before a different judge in Washington their lawyer has said that they still look like their own opinion because of the different national security implications of their cases but it is it is significant and important as the court take notice of this ruling and conversely what's the argument from the trump administration what are officials there saying they say that this has been the practice of past administrations including president Obama that their office of legal counsel memos say that they cannot be ordered to appear what the judge said in his ruling on Monday is that time again have to appear and then that's a different matter if he wants to claim executive privilege on certain questions and go question by question but she says it's a matter of law you can't ignore this order and she says presidents are not king and cannot overrule you know current or former aide to have the will to testify and of course all of this likely to come to a head at next week when the house Judiciary Committee holds its first hearing next Wednesday right to these court cases are continuing to move simultaneously and there are two already that the Supreme Court is thinking about taking that have to do with information about health investigators look like as part of their impeachment inquiry were waiting on action there as well and merry Mao who is following all of this for the Washington post thank you for being with us if you listen this morning on C..

The time America invaded Britain
"Was seventeen seventy eight an American ship called the ranger was headed to France. The ranger had two missions I to deliver news of the British surrender at Saratoga. The Americans hoped the victory would persuade King Louis the sixteenth to lend troops to Americans fighting the revolutionary war the second goal cause problems for the British John Paul Jones was the rangers captain tune on his voyage. The ranger sunk brig loaded with flaxseed a schooner filled with barley and oats in a merchant's loop filled with beer but Jones was a fiery ambitious captain. He wanted more than just to sink ships so as he sailed through the Irish Sea he hatched a plan to bring the American revolution to Britain chores specifically to the shores of a town called whitehaven where he'd begun his naval career in the name of the United States Navy Jones decided. He didn't made his home town. That idea of course was met with resistance from his top lieutenants. Jones spent a day on board the ranger trying to convince his men to carry out the rate. Finally thirty men agreed in the wee hours of the morning Jones in his crew paddled the two miles to shore and took a nearby British fort without incident Hay success. Yes another crew launched in a second vote. Their job was to set fire to the ships in the harbor into the town. They veered a bit off course instead of setting fire to the ships as planned the men invaded a tavern and got drunk one crewmen the scape and ran through the village to alert the fire brigade of the coming destruction when the people of Whitehaven woke up and gathered at the docks only one ship hip was on fire Jones posted guards at the end of the dock and threw flaming pinecone into the ship's cargo hold he later wrote that the cargo hold was filled filled with coal and if it caught fire it would've spread well it didn't so his crew piled into a Guinea breath and paddled in the morning daylight back to the ranger taking cannon fire from townspeople while they retreated the ship fire. Meanwhile was easily extinguished. The plot was such a failure but Jones only narrowly avoided a mutiny from his crew but it may be Jones got the last laugh. His operation wasn't a success but it ravaged public opinion of the war in Britain Britain British generals had assured parliament the mainland was safe and humorous some Pesky American landing right on their shores according to revolutionary war or historian Tim McGrath the British papers were furious and as for Jones himself. His legacy has survived through history. You may not remember his his name or his infamous raid but you've probably heard the word. She cried soon. After during a naval battle off the Yorkshire Coast when asked if he wished surrender Jones declared I have not yet begun to fight. That battle ended in victory.

probably come from leaks from with them how about you what do you think well I think that is over that the government disclosure has happened I don't know what people are the fact that this is like I said the way it came out it's the nation reacted with one big yawn because as I said eight ancient aliens UFO files guy everyone has produced so much over the last two years on ancient aliens and current deductions that everybody's familiar I mean we have been prepared and that's true we were prepared since nineteen sixty five I saw your member Alan Burke beyond Burke show in New York yeah he was a pretty arrogant the intellectual but he interviewed Frank Edwards who wrote flying sorcery great journalist fantastic and he said on his show he said listen the CIA has made a plan to prepare the American public for the revelation of of aliens and extraterrestrials and UFOs fine sausages so useless they fly sauces series business he said I have learned from the CIA contact the CIA has a plan of seven phases the seven stages of seven years during which time the American public and their consciousness is going to be prepared slowly and he said notice right now meaning nineteen sixty five and in the past meaning the nineteen fifties most of the science fiction movies you seen have been about monsters from outer space but shortly in coming years you're going to start to see other kinds of movies about aliens and humans and they are going to be presented as less than monsters and you know is two years three years after that that Robinson Crusoe on Mars came out yeah which is basically telling the story of the under knocking if you recall they're the slaves on Mars mining in the alien and sedition was in there yes exactly so but he should something else he said they are developing a new film technology and you are going to see films in the future that are beyond your imagination the technology I he apparently had seen it he's been given a preview as had Cooper warden Cooper Gordon Cooper in his biography which I recommend to everyone he writes about having changed UFOs over Germany and flown down the street and had pictures and pictures but he said that he had been called in to the Disney studios and he had been shown a three D. technology that was so real that it was overwhelming but he said but he's very far in the future because they're gonna have to revamp all of the the equipment the cameras the cedars the projectors to be able to handle this new technology leap of faith that was as pork all right a beautiful book I really like the I like Gordon Cooper at my sorry we lost every very a great guy honest honest to the key question in that book and I'm surprised a very few people really have gone into it let's take some calls and I want to talk with you about China get you take your what's going on there let's go to Thomas in la Hoya California to get things rolling here hi Tom hi George thank you for taking my call Robert it's been too long and so your interviews are great thank you know Robert you've talked a lot about the United States Navy there was a United States Navy man named William males Tompkins who recently passed away at age ninety four he wrote a book called the title was selected by extraterrestrials if intended that extraterrestrial factions manipulated World War two heavily yeah and he also contended something else that the United States Navy had a space force in the nineteen fifties and was not only inter planetary but inter stellar and had ships and everything and get out and I wanted to ask you know since he was a navy man how you assess the credibility of William mills Tompkins in white of the research that you have done with the United States Navy well I believe I believe that Mister Tompkins like many other people the weight of solitary knowledge is a very difficult thing to bear and I think that is it is it erupts in people when they start to speak as they see this time coming and they have no reason anymore to keep quiet they're not afraid of government retribution then afraid of ridicule they just want to tell the truth so I do believe it and I would recommend to you a you a you too it's called the UFO hat by Dr Sam Holland and there you will find the evidence that the United States Navy has had for black triangle UFOs based on Tesla technology were recovered and alien technology and it had it for many many years this you have full patent is an actual real patent that the United States Navy submitted to the patent office and they got rejected and so ms doctor Holland presents that presents the rejection and he presents the letter that they sent back the navy sent back and said that since this thing works we've already built it and it really works so they got the patent the navy has starships and the navy has starships and why don't we use them they use them all the time I do you see there is it is we have a space guard we not all extraterrestrials are benevolent no some are so David David David Jacobs is correct that some of them are not so much not summer very hostile and so we have to guard against this this faction now I would like to point out as I said to you about films that were predicted by Frank Edwards that we would see films that would prepare us so in the last couple years the US navy has been very active on this topic of the alien invasion and how it would be dealt with by the navy the first movie that I would recommend is called battle ship which is about an alien invasion taking place in Hawaii the navy went all out in cooperating with this movie they supplied the fleet by the USS John Paul Jones they even got the Missouri and to the end of the movie to save the world then there's another movie that came and went and it really should be something that everybody take seriously it's called the battle of LA and it's about a marine battalion really having to defend the city of LA and that was a real story by the way yeah real story he in terms of what they were doing up there shooting at some object yeah but but the depiction of the battle is incredible and the after that they got to play the sergeant marine sergeant you know he's a real calling you know the I one of my objections to Hollywood movies as they get all the beach boys they try to pay to play real soldiers and sailors and they don't move actually search for not all John Wayne's Robert at all gently right so this movie I I highly recommend this very it's a gripping it's greasy it's really intense and it's shot in cinema very take you know moving camera you're right there in the battle but again the US navy cooperated with this film again to tell people not to be afraid right because ultimately we are victorious and that's the way I feel about the disclosure and that is the culmination of the initiative that was started by president Kennedy fifty five years before so navy US navy well done absolutely nine years navy for me by the way Robert all I've heard about that I would love to interview you on my show we'll do it I do have I have a show on Sundays three eight three five PM a revolution radio and that's all you have to type in revolution dot radio so tune in I I cover a lot of news it's not it's a very rarely actually working now we're gonna come for you talking of speaking of whole wide let's go to Franklin in Maui welcome to the program Franklin hi there sorry George you're wonderful and you helped us tremendously understand what's going on in the world thanks and I believe there will be no about flying saucers pretty soon I hope so the wind is going to get involved I used to work at the and for two years okay so I really think that when it gets released it's going to be better for America and for the world and I think people will understand that I think I think I think they will you know what there's are a lot of people that don't understand what's going on absolutely no one's willing I gorge ghoul preparation that has to be achieved because of the war of the worlds panic when Orson Welles did his pants and they did panic we'll the people were on the verge of suicide and now I think some jumped I don't know but the jumper's but I know that some people came home and found there's us is distraught and ready to to drink the iodine so when that reaction occurred the US government realize you know this is too horrible to scary and that's why they put the lid on on runs well by the way on run as well as I can remember my friend and Mitchell and I like to say extra Mitchell was raised thirty five miles away from Roswell warning hers for Texas but a very early age he moved to New Mexico and he was living there at the time of the Roswell crash that thank you Mitchell started flying when you talk about your knees congratulate granddaughter grand granddaughter she's a Edgar Mitchell started flying at the age of thirteen he was born in nineteen thirty seven nineteen forty three he was already flying around New Mexico since nineteen forty seven he was already pilot and you can bet your bottom dollar that he must have been flying around the area scoping out nothing and he knew all the people he said this you know I mentioned earlier that I had sent Edgar a UFO photograph that he himself had shot on the moon I found it and the reason I found it was that he was supposed to stand in one position in turn three hundred and sixty degrees issued photographs that would the lineup they match up so that he could make a room a diner Rama at NASA where they would compose a room with giant photographs that he had taken three hundred sixty degree panorama but I SO two pictures of the same rockets called saddle rock and he took two pictures of it and the second picture was closer than the first I said to myself he was supposed to stay in place and she continues to be took two pictures and he ran up to the rock what do you do that so when I looked at the second picture but the rockets in a larger size I found there was something in this guy a very unusual object oddly shaped and.

unusual object oddly shaped and it had a pattern of a geometric pattern on it and it was UFO so I contacted him I met Edgar in New York when he spoke at the explorer super guy Robert was and he was a high hill I am a parasite colleges and we owe so much to it give Mitchell the field of parapsychology was considered fringe you know no you're right seventies but those of us who knew that we had the psychic forces psychic abilities we knew it was real and that's why I pursued my college degree in psychology and really on parapsychology and when they give Mitchell went to the moon he did psychological Paris psychological experiments transmitting images from the moon to the earth to a receiver and he was successful and look magazine did an extensive issue on all of this experimentation and that's when parapsychology became respectable when you look magazine revealed that Edgar Mitchell and ness we're seriously studying telepathy was was one of the main issues that they were testing and remote viewing so as a remote viewer here on earth and a telepath meaning Edgar Mitchell transmitting on the moon he gave a lot of credibility and I'm gonna ask you about the Chinese before we take the break in the will come back with final calls the Chinese of had an incredible history I in ancient times with so called moon people and they've got the the Chinese goddess of the moon the caller Chang Ole tell me more about the Chinese you've looked into this well let me tell you the first time I heard the name chan what is when Apollo eleven was on its way to the moon up in Houston call them up and said by the way we have a request here apparently a Chinese Bruce's was adopted and taken to the moon by a six foot tall gray rabbit thousands of years ago so we'd like you to keep your eye out and if you see her let us know in a very strange transmission that was a weird one is them trying to be funny you wasn't but she told the reply which is not you know he acknowledges you years he basically said like it was part of the mission exactly exactly so so that's what I said who is Chango so I found out that we have the man on the moon and the Chinese people have the rabbit on the moon and the rabbit they see a figure of a running rabbits and this is a great rabbit that ups does state or took this princess of the moon she was involved in Dallas alchemy and she and her husband were looking for the pill of immortality and this was forbidden by the by the by the imperial court for people to be messing around with this technology you might call it but they were and so she and her husband had produced two pills of this elixir of immortality and they were being found out and as the Chinese soldiers were coming to inspect her house he didn't know what to do so she dropped the two of them she took both bills it was supposed be one for you so what happens is she starts the flu she started to levitate and it's at that point the she started floating higher and higher and apparently a gray excludes tall gray rather you know how do you put a long years on a gray extraterrestrial I think he looks like a rabbit right and what about jar jar Binks in this test the stupid Star Wars three that's what I bills out of Star Wars when the the Chinese believe this big time right so they have a name to all of their pro and used to used to is the jade rabbit yeah so good observation right so there's another article that we've linked up on your page I'm very proud of it in twenty thirteen something happened on the moon to China all three let me read the title of your article has China made contact with the aliens on the moon spectacularly Lee you are full buzz is Chinese lunar landing right right that's amazing yes that's an amazing headline and it's nothing without proof well the question is has China made contact with aliens on the moon the fact is aliens made contact with China on the moon and the photographs that I present in that article are the proof this is an incredible thing that happened on Christmas Eve December twenty fourth twenty thirteen at five thirty seven five thirty seven or so five twenty seven and in the afternoon this UFO presented itself to the Chinese camera on the lander ten photographs who's right there right in front of it it came in from the left side at a forty five degree angle and stopped to take it paused long enough for three photographs lonely was like it was posing Robert that that article is at coast to coast AM dot com in the highlight reel that Robert has written for the your full digest we're

"He said, we'll make enough enough enemies as a result of this beach. Let's not add congress to it, but the truth is that today. The village airy industry. In other words, your defense industries, and congress are together, and people become millionaires on the hill. Thanks to campaign contributions that reward them for spending money on defense or other areas as well, but defenses huge it's, it's the largest discretionary spending, and it's, it's tragic because all that money is spent for reasons that have nothing to do with our true military needs. Right. Industry was to stay in business. So you have this unholy alliance of three groups, the senior military leaders who are now indistinguishable from the politicians on the hill. They just have to wear uniform politicians on the hill and the leaders in industry and their shareholders, all of them want to maintain our positions all around the world and overseas, as well as the threat pictures that justify military spending to convince people that we're on the verge of potential conflict with the whole number of different states nations, which is frankly untrue. As I said, things have really changed today spends less on their national defense than we spend on the entire budget. United States army alone. Iran spend less money on their defense than we spend on fielding an entire carrier battlegroup in the United States navy could go on and on North Korea's being circling the drain for, for twenty years. They're fighting off starvation. We keep imputing to them nuclear capability, which is very questionable. There's not much evidence for any nuclear warheads, and we were not sure that they could deliver anything if they tried. But you don't hear that, that's truthful. You hear the opposite these greatly exaggerated, threats and capabilities. All of this is part of the plan to keep spending lavishly on the old World War, Two structure, and it's, it's wasteful. It's unnecessary and ultimately, it's beginning to create alliances against us. And we've already seen that. And what is the emerging alliance between would say not allies, but on tons between Russia and China and potentially Iran? Not because these three states like each other. They don't it's because they are afraid of us. In other words, we tend to tell the American people are under threat, and then we go do things to justify the threat in reality. We're not under threat. We ended up creating more threats just as we created millions and millions and.

"It's funny topic that's been debated as long as I've been alive. And that is this look either you need to get rid of selective service. And that is the draft registration for young men between the ages. Well, starting at age eighteen it's the law. Right. You've got to get rid of that whole thing or you need to require women to do the same thing men do and it's been a quiet topic for too long. Most recently, though, a federal judge in Texas declared that the all-male military draft is unconstitutional saying the times past for a debate on whether women belong military. So the only problem with this. It's a declaratory judgment not an injunction in the legal walking us. And that basically means is this court ruling cannot force the order and force the government change, congress has done enact a change of selective service. An injunction would be injunctive relief. Meaning the court would order you to stop or continue or generally stop me practice. This one just says, well, we're going to make a declaration here, we strongly advise the court the congress to come up with a reasonable solution to the. This whole thing. Meaning either you get rid of selective service or you include women and selective service. Karen stran- is a men's rights spokesperson and contributor to voice for men dot com. And it wasn't men's right group that brought this thing up the national coalition for men. Karen? Argued it was unfair. Because I think it's an interesting argument to because if you don't buy your eighteenth birthday registered for selective service, you can be denied public benefits like a federal jobs student loan stuff like that. Plus, it's a felony punishable by five years in prison and up to two hundred fifty thousand dollars in cash women don't have that burden that that's totally sexist. It is it is. And you know, I'm really really glad that they were able to at least get this judgment. You know, it's been tried before back in the seventies and maybe early eighties twice and the judgment coming down. At that time seemed to be that. Well, we don't allow women in combat and therefore it's just not the same. Now, we allow women in combat or at least to attempt to get into conduct position. So that that one excuse no longer hold. So essentially NC FM they brought the lawsuit. It's been in the works for a while. And and I'm just really pleased at that. They got the. At least this result. This affirmation that that this is a sexist policies. There's no question about it. So why served my country care in a year ago in the United States navy? I was in. I was on the carrier the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN for twenty four hours for immediate thing. But I served by country. Anyway, I was there. I wish I was amazed. I was impressed with not only the character of down to the to the sailor aboard that aboard that ship. But also the fact that roughly forty to fifty percent of the crew were female. I couldn't believe that many women were serving in the United States navy. The best navy in the world. How many women were on that ship in doing you name the job from anything from military? Police are short patrol whatever it would be all the way up to the actually a woman. I met is. Now, the first commander of a United States navy aircraft-carrier lady automobile walkie, I forget her name, but she was extremely impressive. And she was the executive officer that boats. So she is now in command of Roan craft carrier. Well, you know, I am, you know, as far as as far as that goes, you know, I've always been of the opinion that women should have always been included in the draft. Right. When Canada pulled it says CF a teams from from the Middle East. They didn't just pull for jets. Right. They pulled up essentially a group of people that was maybe in the hundreds because for every hour of light time in the air where where there's a pilot. It's not just the jet and the pilot this whole team behind each one. And women can do those jobs women. Women can do administrative work women. Can you know? So it's not just about p put people on front in front line combat. Right. Women can do probably eighty percents of the jobs military every bit as as well as men, and so the entire argument, and the entire outrage now from people who were opposed to this appears to be how dare we inconvenience linen the way we inconvenience men. Seems to be the only thing, you know. I I if you watch like, I dunno watch. Combat sports, for example, to you look at the women that are in combat sports. Now, it's a whole in. It's not it's not one of those things where you know, we're going to just, you know, throw a couple of women out there and just you know, just for giggles, or what you know, like the gorgeous ladies of wrestling back in the day. I'm a legitimately. You have some cage fighters that can whip a lot of guys. Right. And so if I see them ago if they can qualify like a marine can if they can carry eighty to ninety pounds of equipment and get their battle rattle on guess what? I'm all for that. Agreed agreed on you know, as well. It's it's, you know, we're not generally putting, you know, Ronda Rousey in the ring with the Brock listener. Yeah. Yeah. Right. We're not doing that. But at the same time when when you have a military draft, you're not necessarily your standards are going to go down and down and down in terms of physical capabilities. And you're really, you know, if you have a draft is because you're desperate to fill the ranks. And and there are plenty of women who would qualify who would physically qualify to actually be drafted into the army or into the military. And and just as there, there would probably be more men who qualify who who meet the standards. But yeah, when you're looking at the at, you know, that movie Biloxi blues. You know, I'm sorry. But if there is dealer is is not he's he's not a special forces material. Right. So, you know, I I just don't understand how how all of these arguments, including, you know, having to wait until women are allowed to try out for combat positions. I don't understand how any of those arguments hold in terms of you know, really it is either your qualified or not. And we've been hearing this for a long time to the United States. Army Karen is gonna use a new PT test. There's no difference between men and women. And basically the test will vary by job type. Because what someone be I don't know if you're working in administrative role as you said in in military HR or something like that you're going to have a lower standard than someone who would be an infantry someone who would be in special forces that makes sense to someone working a desk job to someone who's a tank mechanic need to have the same standards. Someone is on the tip of the spear and the answer, of course, is no. And if you qualify, you can be place based on your qualifications that makes sense. I absolutely does it really really does. And you know, something like that. Even if they brought it so they could increase the percentage of women in the military. More women could meet the standards. I can completely understand that. Now, if they lowered the standards for women only, right and kept the same standards for for men. I would totally disagree with that. But if they're going by job type, it's it going by you know, where you're going to be within the ranks. I mean, this is no longer, you know, sort of a World War One or World War Two situation, where people are like the majority of the people in the military are on the ground on the front lines in the FOX holes and doing essentially that the hiking in the grunt work and not hauling of the eighty pounds ninety pounds. It's like the one I believe there's for every for every frontline soldier there. Five people behind the scenes behind the lines at are are basically servicing them. That's right. That's right. And I think women do women do an exceptional job of micro managing, and and no kidding better than men tend to on average be better than men at those kinds of administrative tasks, so Karen stran- is a men's right? Spokesperson in contributed for a voice. We're talking about the recent court ruling that says either we need to get rid of selective service the draft registration for men in America. Or we need to require women to do the same thing men. Do you can't have both. Because to me, it seems not only on constitutional, but in this day and age of female empowerment, it seems like one of those issues care, and that doesn't get that much attention. She's joining me this morning on seven hundred w on the acute hearing, center dot com hotline. So where's the why isn't this done? It seems like shouldn't there be consensus are generally feminists and women's rights advocates for or against this or they they neutral on it? Well, I think the official position since the nineteen seventies of the national organization for women, which is the biggest feminist group feminist organization in the world deposition. And they wrote an amicus brief in that first court case was that women should be drafted their reasoning was that there's an illusion that the that conscription should should give men more respect and more power and more rights than women. And so if women want the respect and power and rights that men have this would be a way to actually give them access to that. So essentially, I agree with their physician at that time. But now, I mean, you look at when Hillary Clinton was was questioned about that during during an interview or I count hall meeting or something like that. What about the draft? What about you know, adding women to the selective service? And she said, well, you know, I don't know about whether women should. But I do this is seven hundred.

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the job after show the United States navy. The alighted states of America is secure because of the department of navy. That's been true since the navy and the eighteenth century took charge of taking on reddish fleet. But that was then this is now we have new foes, and I think we can locate some of them with our GPS and those photos are aware that the department of navy that the United States navy is the bulwark that defends the United States, and they mean to in some fashion solve that the Japanese failed the Germans failed the Soviets failed. But that doesn't mean they're not going to keep on trying. What is the threat to the US navy that most needs attention and I'm not talking about some super weapon. I welcome. The under secretary of the United States navy, Tom Oatley who with his colleagues have very carefully worked up what right now looks to be a fresh. Look afresh understanding of the role of the navy education. Tom a very good evening to you. And congratulations, Mr. undersecretary for you and all of your colleagues. I don't have all of the names in front of me. I only see the memo from the secretary of the navy, but this is an enormous amount of work. Let us begin with the reason for this work about education in the navy. The new educated navy. What is the cognitive age? How do you understand at Tom? Good evening to you. Thanks, john. Thanks, very much and thanks for having me on and forgiving me the opportunity to talk a little bit about this work. This is a this was basically study that we embarked on about a year ago to take a look at the entire educational process in the navy how we educate our officers and our enlisted folks as well as our civilians, and and to try to understand what that meant and whether or not we were properly suited for what you refer to and what we refer to as a cognitive age and that is moving into. Era where most of the the threats adversaries that we face are advancing and catching up to us with respect to capability, and leveraging technology, and and and and information management and data in a way that is making it very very difficult for us to maintain our competitive advantage. So what we're fine. What we found is that what are the things that. We are firmly firmly believe in is that our competitive advantage is largely going to be our minds going forward. We can continue to invest in technology that translates into machines and equipment. But really it's going to be the ability of our folks to think through challenging situations. Thanks uncertainty be able to grapple with those in this new strategic era. So this study we started a year ago as I mentioned, it's really not really been approached for over one hundred years in the navy back in nineteen eighteen. There was a report that was very similar. Done by. Three captains in the navy. One of them was Ernest king when he was still a captain, and they took a look at education education process, and they determined that the navy did not adequately prepare officers for strategic thinking. And so the results of that report really helped us later foundation for the type of work that was done at the war colleges in the decapa me leading up to World War Two and all of those officers who led us through the Pacific battle in the Atlantic. The battle for the Atlantic had been educated through that process and influence through the thinking that that Knox. King pie report put out in one thousand nine hundred and so we wanted to try and do is take a look at it again and take a fresh look, and we called it a clean sheet review when we looked at all the academic institutions in the navy, the naval war college naval postgraduate school, the naval academy Marine Corps university and all the other supporting situtions that helped create this educational ecosystem, and we found that there were some significant. Goals they needed to be addressed. And that's what basically the report made a series of recommendations, the secretary took a look at those recommendations accepted, some of them modified some of them. And that's what were were actually were put into this action actually memoir that we put out about week or so ago puzzle. Mr. undersecretary to your experience are the enlisted man are the officers in the navy and the Marine Corps are there. Wear of this problem. For example, I've read through an address you made two marines recently at the army navy. Army navy country club in Virginia. And the audience was wrapped as you talked about the cognitive age where they nodding their heads saying, yes, we're marine officers. But we know we need something else. I've honestly received that kind of response just about every single audience I speak to and that includes our civilian contractor base uniform personnel people out in the civilian world. Who are just starting starting to gain understanding of the challenges that we face I get a lot of head nodding. And I think it's you know, that sorta step one is recognizing you have a problem recognizing that you have to change. And that is a that is a challenge for institutions that are wrapped in tradition. But I would also what I try to pose in most of these most of these talks that I gave is that the Marine Corps. The United States navy. They've been on the edge of innovation for a very very long time. And so we have to we have to accept our traditions, and we embrace our traditions, but we also have to embrace the fact that one of our tradition is that his that we innovate when we need to when we see the threats changing, and it's just happening a lot faster now. And I think people are starting to recognize that. So you would you. I would tend to think of marines being a very sort of stoic and change resistant crew, but they are very very very open to this message and recognize that that we have to make some changes now. Actually, I think in the marines. The story you're told at the army navy country club about your instructor who was a marine instructor when you got out of the academy were training in rotary winged aircraft and his idea of education was to be used colorful language in the hit you over the head with a clipboard now, that's an unusual approach to regimenting somebody. Well, that's true. But that's what I'm talking about. When I talk about innovation. I mean, I think everyone has their own style. And that was very effective in getting me to get over the hump where I was having a difficult time hovering over rotating in an aircraft. And when I finally was able to do it. He that was the way he rewarded me. So it was obviously ingest, but still it's still something that I always always remember. And I think that's uh that keeps us all humble, I think in some ways and also helps us recognize that humor is always something. Good to put into a situation when you're struggling. I'm speaking to the under secretary. The United States navy who was charged with an enormous amount of people. There are so many names involved could go through all the admirals hardworking people to re think education for the United States navy and the Marine Corps. So when we come back, what is that going to look like are we talking about building something new are we talking about taking what exists now in reorganizing it changes threatening. So if everybody's on board for this are they really, Tom. Oh, please undersecretary of the United States navy. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Balance of nature's fruits and veggies in a capsule. I believe it your your company has the answer because I think through cancer treatment, and knowing what it does to the body, and oh, my that's all that medical science has to offer. There must be a better way. I think the bedroom way is is knowing what to eat. And and getting it. I do notice that I have less inflammation. I feel like when I'm taking balance of nature. I'm getting fruits and vegetables more than what I would ordinarily get. I like when I opened up the bottles. You can really smell the fruits and vegetables..

"United States navy now with the Carlyle Group and a frequent guest when matters turn to global affairs. Admiral though, welcome good morning. Great to have you great to be with you, Hugh. I wanna begin before we turn the Venezuela with a something of a sidebar that you and I have talked about a long time ago, which is the culture of mentoring in the military. The reason I bring it up last night. I had a chance to spend a good hour with my friend, Brian. Ferguson retired CEO who now leads Rena labs and Brian. I did not know this arena labs is wildly successful. But I did not know he had been your aid. And he looks up to an and every time I turn around I run into a Stavridis aid or disciple somewhere, and it struck me again that you and you're not alone in this you and senior members of the military invest in young people a great deal. It's sort of the culture of the military. I guess it is you, and I would say that the reason you keep running. Minutes because I need more help than the rich Admiral. But Brian came to me as a young civilian working in the Pentagon had this dream in his eye to become a US navy seal. I was skeptical, but we talked about it. And it was clear to me that he had what it took and went on to a brilliant career in the seals. And now is putting all that innovation that he learned in special forces to use in the private sector. I'm very proud of Brian. And thank you for mentioning that arena. Labs place is just amazing. I love spending time with the special operators who are now out in industry doing different things and how they bring not just mentoring. But an attitude of team building an innovation. I know this isn't Seapower. But you can't run a ship with one MOS, right? You need to have a whole bunch of different people running a ship and indeed the entire military, exactly. And the special forces bring that sense of let's try it. And there's not enough of that in various sectors in the US. Economy. So when you see people like Brian go into that world, you know, sparks will follow things will happen. And it won't always be successful. You know, you you. You'll miss more than you'll hit. But you will succeed long-term within a nation. That's the message special forces. Let's talk about the innovation of American foreign policy vis-a-vis Venezuela. It is clear Eliana Johnson. We're talking about this that the president the vice president the secretary of state in the national security adviser are using Twitter to lever Madero out of there to try and catapult him out of there. And Marco Rubio, specifically three days ago tweeted this future of democracy in Venezuela is largely in the hands of six men. General Vladimir Patrono, Admiral Remegio Sabet Major General Hejaz Raphael Suarez Torio, Admiral. Giuseppi Allesandro davita. Major General Edgar Valentine crews are TA guy and Major General Antonio Benedi's Torres. I quit. Do you know any of those guys? I know the second Admiral you mentioned, and I think that these are serious men who are calculating closely which way the wind is blowing. And I am cautiously optimistic that this one is going to land diplomatically, and I think the Trump administration which has had some hips and had some MRs as we were just talking about a moment ago is going at this one with great deal of innovation and using all the tools economic diplomatic political social networks highly effectively, and I think that we can land this thing I'd say three and four chance the military roles on Madero Maderas out of there. Now when you specifically address senior officers by name, and then Senator Rubio goes on to say amnesty is yours. You're speaking for one guy. Oh there, but they did the national simply did offer them amnesty. I actually don't know that there's a precedent for this. We tried this. I think in Chile, and it went very very badly wrong under Nixon have we tried this successfully before you can make the argument that this is how we got Idi Amin out of his nation back in the eighties. But in recent diplomatic history. It has not it's often proposed. There were discussions about this with Saddam Hussein most recently in my experiences this pre Malek Mandarin NATO, Hugh in Libya because we were launching that campaign. We tried everything we could to convince Moammar Qaddafi to simply leave and offered him a number of different really attracted next places. He could go a typically these repression is dictators hold on longer than they should and someone like Qaddafi ends up murdered by his own people. I think Medeiros a weak personality. And I think there's at least eight. A chance that he will waiver the military will push him out, and he can go off and live happily ever after on a hacienda outside of Havana. Yeah. Baby. Doc Duvalier took the option as well. Good good example. It does happen. But then I go back to the military, and what what Senator Rubio was saying as you can be part of the rebuild because you have not open fired on the civilians. That's the implication is that you have not trust a line yet. Do you think that's actually possible for them to immediately go in with a president designate Gwyther Guida and begin to function as a real military functions, for example, in this country and support of the civilian government? I think so and I'll give you an example of where we didn't play this one particularly well was in Iraq after we defeated the Iraqi armed forces in the invasion in two thousand three two thousand four rather than saying to them now is your chance to become a professional military. We simply decapitated them. We fired him. All we put a lot of the senior ones in jail and that army that Iraqi army is what built the resistance, which we had to fight, and you can drop a plumb line from that to the Islamic state. So I think that we would be well served to give this military the opportunity and tell them this is your chance arguably the worst foreign policy decision of the new millennium was the decision to disband the Iraqi army. I'm still not even sure who made it do you think it was Paul Bremmer? Was it do you do I think unquestionably? It was Paul Bremmer at that time. I was the chief of staff to Don Rum's. Feld who a number of people have tried to say, this was a Rumsfeld decision. Bremmer came back. You'll recall he was kinda the viceroy. This was his idea. His proposal. Rumsfeld was skeptical about it, but Bremmer pushed it over the top in the White House. So I think that's one that Paul Bremmer in the history books will have to answer for and I agree with you worst decision of the twenty first century. It has cost thousands of American lives in a couple of trillion dollars and hundreds of thousands of Syria. I mean, it just is one of the all-time dumb thing. And it's wonder if you game that out, do you suppose that if that had been table games that would have come out differently? I do. And I think again as we often see, Hugh, and you know, this is a student of history. We don't spend enough time trying to understand the history the culture of giving nations in the institutions we didn't those nations on this was a Soviet trained army in Iraq. They would have snapped into place. And I think become a pretty effective force. Iraq would be very different and much more positive place. If we had been smarter about. Decapitating that force. That's a very good lesson for American military planners as a think and diplomats in secretary Pompeii John Bolton, the vice president the president to keep in mind as they deal with the Venezuelan military. I hadn't thought much about that. But that is an excellent excellent caution. Speaking of secretary upon pale a minute ago, he tweeted out, quote, great to meet the next generation of freedom loving Slovak's at Globes sack their commitment to democracy is inspiring. I have no doubt that they have the hashtag courage to be free. You don't hear much about Slovakia indeed, much of the former Yugoslavian Republic how how fares freedom in that world, Admiral Stavridis. It's a mixed picture in first of all I applaud secretary Pompeii for simply going to eastern Europe into the Balkans. We have a tendency to put them sort of out of sight out of mind in the global economic and security seen. So he's been on a bit of a tour through that region and mixed picture as follows. The Balkan nations are now consolidating and joining NATO. That's a good thing. Tiny Montenegro will see Macedonia now known as north Macedonia. Join NATO, that's what's keeping the peace there in a part of the world that looked like Syria twenty years ago. The bad news is on the far end of that Poland somewhat in Hungary were seeing repression not yet to the degree that we ought to unduly worry about it. But you see some of those nations pulling away from some of the democratic norms. And I think that's part of why secretary Pompeii was going to shore that up within the context of NATO. My last question for you, Admiral. This is concerning to me the European Union reached a provisional deal today. A new rules governing the import gas pipeline called Nord Stream two it was a compromise of sorts. The Germans want Nord Stream to the anti Russian blocked wants no part of it. What do you make of this development, which appears to guarantee that this seven hundred sixty mile pipeline already under construction is going to roll from Russia into Germany? It's a bad bad deal from a US perspective, Hugh for two reasons. One is it will. Increase the dependence of Europe. Notably Germany on gas coming from Europe on hydrocarbons broadly. And then Secondly, this would have been terrific market for US liquefied natural gas, and with that pipeline, it diminishes the economic case for doing that. So this is a strategic and economic miss from the US perspective. We're trying to continue to push back on that. The Germans are not playing nicely with us on this. So as a former NATO allied supreme commander. What's a NATO commander to do in the EU, basically undercuts the entire mission? You are very frustrated, and I went through this in Libya, Hugh, when we did not see a number of the NATO allies step up and participate in that campaign, which was entirely legitimate and under the auspices, not only of NATO, but of the United Nations, we continue to have a disagreement with European Union, as you know, about Iran, and we're seeing the Europeans also undercutting the sanctions we placed on Iran. So we there's no easy answer. Here. We're not going to walk out of NATO or throw up our hands and stop dealing with Europeans. But we need to keep steady pressure on them. I think this is something secretary Pompeo peyot is doing quite well, Admiral, James Stavridis. Always a pleasure. Follow him on Twitter at staff readings Jay and follow me to the next segment America because it is always that time where I finish up a show. I always like to bring you a great guest at the end of the show, but also got to remind you of.

"Ship. The continental navy at America's revolution at sea. We've already celebrated Gustavus Cunningham, and now another Irishman John, Barry, John, Barry is the best commander that Robert Morris has in the committee of the maritime committee. No, it you were telling the second story, please continue to. Well, thank you, Mr. bachelor when Barry returns, they've already pretty much made the pickings the first five captain, and he's actually giving the job of helping refit the merchantman they've selected to be the cotton, mental navy industry types of war, and he dives right into his work. He's very loyal and faithful, but he watches for the next several months is a couple of other ships couple of schooners and sloops acquired keeps wandering mine. His chance it's gonna come and finally March of seventy six congress by brigantine wild duck, and they rename her at the Lexington and give Barry the task of getting her refitted and out to sea. He is helped by a young, man. He knows from shipyards Joshua Humphreys who will later design the frigates of the United States navy in the seventeen ninety. He's a Quaker who is. Literally disowned by the friends because he's building shifts of war. But Barry gets the Lexington ready. No time Stanford down the Delaware. And while Hopkins squadron Israel has returning or is in the process of returning from their rate in the Bahamas. Barry fights, the first successful battle against the British and captures the sloop called the Edward and brings her back to Philadelphia and the the newspapers and some of the dyers caps of it. You would have thought that they got news that the war was over the way to Philadelphia and celebrated along the waterfront Barry's, a fighting, captain one more story before we go to Jones when how brothers the the Admiral and the general move from New York to Philadelphia the at that point Barry's been given command of the frigate, the the congress has at this point ordered thirteen frigates to be built and berries to have one of them. But they are trapped by the British navy coming up, the Delaware and berries job is to what hide his frigate or destroy. Roy at how is the original order, Tim? Well, the original plans for that his frigate and another one the Washington under captain Thomas read, a friend of Barry's were sent north of Philadelphia towards Borton town in Whitehall to get out of the way with the British not knowing how this was going to go and buy now, Washington already lost the battle brandy wine. He's saying Alexander Hamilton is his career to Philadelphia they'll tell congress you better get out of town. And one of the congressman Francis Hopkinson Philadelphian who is is. My grandfather would say well over four feet brilliant, maritime lawyer. So he's in charge of the naval board of the Philadelphia area middle district, and he sends orders to vary to go up and hide the frigate. He's not happy about this. Because now the battle for is taking. In place, and it's quite a huge naval affair with fort. Smith, Linden Mercer and the British fleet under Admiral how so he and his men could hear the cannon fire going on some miles down river while they're stuck back. There waiting for orders, finally, Washington based on information. He says in his report from young lad, informs Hopkinson. He wants the frigates suck and Varian read or both furious at the news hang we've got a few cat. And we've got our matter if they come up here lettuce Pfizer Minna Fe. Looks gonna lose will burn the frigates. We'll destroy them. But Hopkinson is equally adamant that we will obey Washington's orders, and in a scene that I bet the best way I can describe it, Mr. bachelor. It must be like a colonial version of Caddyshack. Hopkins comes aboard various frigates to personally supervisors thinking. I'm there actually was a way that they could face. Frigates? Have they were when the tide was coming in. Yes, exactly. Then he'll across the shore. And they can actually raise them and make repairs and still be able to sail them, but Hopkinson orders the plugs in their huge down by the kilson that men have to hammer out and then scrambled out of the way because it's a gusher of water that's going to fill those the the bottom of the ship. He orders the plugs. Hammered out as tied going out. And Barry router petulantly goes. Hey, you're in charge. Go right ahead and do. So why is he sees how wrong he started? Because now the frigate is thinking into the middle of the river and actually threatened. The turtles are completely over Hopkinson was quite a salon dancer with all the alacrity that he has of ability gets himself back in his longboat rowed ashore, and after several attempts that he's sorted Barry to do to try to raise the frigate and sinker properly. Berry just gives up. He doesn't have the manner the equipment to do. So even though Hopkins considered told Washington that we have a secret gauge that will be able to do this. And he gets into such a verbal argument with Hopkinson that they both have sort of a Mexican standoff when Barry leaves by now, it's close to Christmas time. He gets permission from Robert Morris in the marine committee to go visit his wife who's now with her family and reading Hopkinson believes this is French leave and goes out of his way pretty much to ruin Barry's career, he wants to have very thrown out of the navy for insubordination. We will come back to Barry. Because now we go to John Paul who adds the name Jones because he's involved in the murder of a sailor earlier in his career. But we best beginning at the beginning to understand why this fireball is still important everybody in the twenty first century where did he come from? Jim. It came from the west coast of Scotland his father was a gardener on an estate layered named Craig who I I ride. I wonder if his I think he was a bastard side later became George. Washington's doctrine is with him. I believe it is deathbed, but the layered it's pretty much almost like a Robert Louis. Stevenson character. Not a very nice man to work for and there actually was some conjecture in the town of Kirkwood. Right. The Laird was John Paul's actual fodder Jones goes to see like Barry like cutting ham. It's a boy, and again has very sharp and quick rise. And it's a captain in his early twenties somewhere in the West Indies. He winds up with rather muteness sailor. That's threatening his life and back in John Paul runs him through and taking so long for trial to occur. He's giving it. Vice get outta here. And he decides to go to Virginia where he has a brother living in Fredericksburg, and he also picks up the name Jones. As a pseudonym. So that he can't be traced up there. He joins the continental navy right from the bat and ironically, they offer him command of providence. But he's one of the few Mariners one of the few captain that has never sailed before. And after a chip so he instead takes lieutenant's commission and serves on the Alfred which was Jon Barry's black print with its with her new name. And he's the first we've tended under assault install. And that's actually also Easter Caulkins flagship John Paul Jones, John Paul pseudonym Jones is about five feet five and a ladies man and extremely aggressive all the time. He lives restless life of complaint, an anger and feeling that he's been left out. He's eighteenth on the on the captain's list, I the timber reproduces for us. And that means he despised all seventeen above him and probably the. The seven behind him as well. Just in case they deep over and he was known right away as a fighting, captain. And we need to note before the famous episode of Richard. There was an earlier integration of John Paul Jones on ranger who gave him ranger. And what was he meant to do with it? The congress gave him the ranger Mr. bachelor with the idea of having him sail over to. France and see what havoc. He could reach over there. He was also one of the ships that they had wanted to get over there quickly because they wanted to get the news of the victory at Saratoga to Franklin as quickly as possible. This is seventy seven. Yes. Go ahead. Yeah. Seventy seven seventy eight and he act- he actually met as being the first captain to bring the news by day, but Jones is has already proven himself with the sloop providence, which he later takes command. He's also giving command of the offered later on. And really proved himself as an indispensable, man. In the navy for his successes and raids up along Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and. Bringing back quite a few prizes and creating quite a. Good bit of prophet and for both congress and supplies and then powder for for Washington as well. But he's not a popular man with his crew. They see that he is somebody who is in ordinary ambitious and dangerous dangerously. So in some cases, you know, he he doesn't mind the risks at all and his subordinates on the ranger not just as crew officers led by Thomas Simpson into Englander aren't happy to be under his command whatsoever. Once he served their established. He decides to do a raid at Whitehaven, and that's not too far from his hometown. He's really doing this as much for for showers for tactics and a chance to let folks where he grew up. Now who who this man is and the white. Haven raid doesn't come off nearly as well as he wants to. He thinks he'll be about a hundred ships. He can burn a court and getting there and the dark of night to the tide and the Windsor against him. So he gets there just as dawn is breaking. He takes two ships or two long boats with him to spike, the guns to the fort and to burn the ships. But one of the the crew that's with him. Obey him without any problems. But the other crew head for the nearest bar or tavern and get that drunk, so they don't carry out their orders at all Jones tries to do both. And the only thing he succeeds in burning us a call ship, which actually the townsfolk rebel to put the fire out after he leaves what he doesn't now is he is returning onto long boats. Is that Simpson and his officers dismayed to see that he's still there because. They had planned for the crew to leave him at Whitehaven and be captured. And then Simpson would take over command of the ranger Tim, do the do the congress do the members of congress or Franklin. Do they approve of Jones these raids along the coast because he is he given specific orders to burn sink and destroy merchantmen. Absolutely. And they see this as something very important to their cause. When Franklin is brought over to France by continental shift reprisal under Maryland, captain Lambert weeks who is equally as brave as Jones, Barry Biddle, also captain weeks. Yeah. Absolutely. And part of Franklin's orders. Are what's your safely there? Then unleash weeks and let the British see what we've been dealing with in their own backyard. I want to emphasize this, Tim, they were not pirates. They were conducting warfare. Fair and in their minds. It was the same that the British were doing by burning towns in America's at all. Correct. Absolutely. There commissioned officers, and they're told to repay the British should show. British subjects why they're dealing with. And you really hit a nerve there. Mr. bachelor wilder Congress's debating in seventy five the need for a continental navy surprised me doing the research how the same day in Adams diary, and the congress journals they're debating this to do British ships from from Rhode Island up to Maine, then part of the territory, Massachusetts said in foul mouth. What's now, Portland? Bombarding towns. The burning towns, they're seizing.
"united states navy" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer
"Hendrick United States navy retired. Because even though there are lots of headlines. I liked to go up high occasionally in this article is in the national review this week that people must read on what is going on with airport. Ken hendricks. Good morning. How are you gotten? Good morning, Hugh. I'm doing just fine. You you. I'm great. I'm great. But you must not be your force friends. Maybe dropping you from the Christmas card list. Actually, I've gotten a lot of great feedback from from air force friends who welcoming courage, the debate and the conversation, I think there's a broad consensus amongst both senior colonels as well as some of the generals that they need to have a conversation about the internal makeup the air force. So I I haven't gotten any shotgun. Blasts over Twitter from them. In fact, I've gotten a lot of great tech stuff from. People from behind the scene. All I gotta tell you don't drive on any country roads because an F eighteen twenty two point to fly over you. And then leave no car behind the the article I'm talking about by Jerry Hendrickson has called how the air force lost its way. And I want to go to the key paragraph, quote, the air force wants understood its purpose was start clarity in the first half of the twentieth. Century airpower advocates continually stressed the importance of bypassing tactical skirmishes in penetrating to the enemy's vital centers. To course, either the foreign government or its population to submit that is now gone Jerry Hendriks that they were a tactical air force now in our strategic component has dwindled to almost nothing. Yeah. That's correct. So, you know, the air force the beginning when it stood up nineteen forty seven the centerpiece of it was the strategic air command. The big bombers in that that was it's raise on d'etre, but successive wars Korea, Vietnam, Iraq. Yugoslavia managed to convince the air force or internally slowly over time that short range aircraft could always reach the targets, and that they would be more precise. When they got there. So bombers were de emphasized, but you know, history has a way of zigging and in this case, so after the end of the Cold War win, of course, you know, we we're going to have this era of eternal peace of the military had a bottom up review, and they made a decision to de emphasize long range strike, and they reemphasized or put the emphasis on the shorter range aircraft like the new Joint Strike Fighter. And so what we've seen is..
