Charlie's Top 5 Reading Recommendations for You

"Someone says Charlie, do you have a reading list or all the dystopian writings that Charlie Kirk mentioned the podcast? One is Orwell's 1984, read this already as required in schools in many years ago. Yes, I recommend rereading it. Okay, yes. So there are 5 dystopian authors, all of whom were somewhat contemporaries of one another. You've heard of all of them, probably one you probably haven't heard of. They're all worth just refreshing as Christians, I encourage us to pursue whatever is true. And I think these 5 books will bless you about what really drives the tyrant. What happens when the tyrant meets technology and how technology brings out the worst impulses of our human condition. So the 5 books, of course, the first is George Orwell's 1984. The second is C. S. Lewis screwtape letters. You can read that alongside mere Christianity, which was actually first delivered as radio broadcast during the German blitz in the early 1940s, late 1930s, through the British broadcast corporation. The third is Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, which is a terrific book and addresses a lot of what we're living through when pleasure becomes the ultimate goal of a society. The fourth book is a lesser known one by Winston Churchill and is only novel. It's called savrola. I've actually not read it, but I'm familiar with it. I took a course by doctor Larry arn from hillsdale college on Churchill, and he talked about it. So that's the fourth. And then the 5th is probably the least known of all 5. And in fact, I plan to finish this book. I started it, but I got little distracted during my mini sabbatical coming up in a couple of weeks here. It's called darkness at noon by Arthur koestler, which is a terrific book. And so I've been finished it yet. So those are the 5 books Arthur koestler was a dissident. And producer Connor says I would include the fountainhead in there as neoliberal dystopian.

Totalitarianism: How Do You Make a Lie Seem Like a Truth?

"How do you make a lie seem like the truth? What is necessary for a totalitarian regime to exist? Well, when you study totalitarianism, it's very clear that it's not just tanks in the streets or mass surveillance, but instead it's the totalitarian control of the mind. There were 5 authors in the late 1940s and 1950s that were pioneers on the topic of totalitarianism. C. S. Lewis, of course, with the screwtape letters and lesser known for this category, but better known in general mere Christianity, which actually started as radio broadcast during the blitz of London. Aldous Huxley, who wrote Brave New World, probably one of the most important books that anyone can read to understand the sexual anarchy that we are living through today. And why due to totalitarians and dictators need to decay sexual norms to be able to have monopolistic control over a civilization. George Orwell would be the third, of course, 1984, animal farm. We talk, we talk often here about 1984 about how one of my favorite lines from 1984 is when Orwell says the best way to keep a secret from the government is you must first keep the secret from yourself. The fourth is a lesser known author that we really should talk more about Arthur koestler, who wrote a book called darkness at noon, all about the Soviet show trials and how people who are completely innocent were killed in a public display. And the 5th author, of course, was Winston Churchill, author of over 50 books and talked a lot about totalitarianism. Churchill, in particular, was very worried about how technology unrestrained from human virtue. Could not just result in tyranny, but would automatically result in tyranny. Churchill argued that technology was more than a tool. He witnessed this in the Darvish region where he saw very courageous people going into the battlefield and just being mowed down by machine guns and he realized that war has changed and technology can bring out the worst in people.

America's Place in the World: The Big Picture

"Ukraine conflict drags on and I want today to step back from it to try to get a little bit of a bigger picture on what all of this is doing to America's place in the world. Now America's place in the world hasn't been that secure for a couple of decades. It's always more insecure under Democrats. For reasons I'm going to go into, but it was going down even before Ukraine. Biden has been, you may say, unwinding America on a number of different fronts. Continuing in this respect, something that Obama was doing for two terms. And but I think the Ukraine conflict may be the turning the inflection point. And I'll say a word about that in a moment. Now here is Vladimir zelensky, the president of Ukraine, who seems to be trying to whip everybody up into a kind of, let's call it a World War three frenzy. And he's doing it by using World War II rhetoric. Let me just quote him here and I have a tendency here to chuckle a little bit, which I guess is not appropriate. But here he is, we will fight till the end at sea in the air. I mean, this is a kind of pathetic evocation of Churchill. Who in the dark days of Nazi advance said in effect, we will fight them in the hills. We will fight them. Here and there and everywhere. And here is a guy zelensky, you know, an admirable fellow in that he's fighting to defend his country, but let's just say he's no Winston Churchill. And more importantly, the analogy is a false analogy because even though the United States was very slow to get into the World War II. In fact, it took a Japanese direct hit on America on Pearl Harbor for America to get into war. That was a war that did directly engage America's vital interests. Why? Because after all the Nazis were overrunning pretty much all of Europe. It's almost a miracle that they didn't crush a British opposition. They did, of course, overrun France. They overrun a number of other countries and the United States, I think, could and should have gotten into World War II even even earlier.

Larry Taunton's Friend Paul Reed Is in Twitter Jail

"So we're going to go first to our guest, Larry Taunton, my friend Larry welcome. Hey, it's great to be with you and tell John, I hope he gets himself together. Yeah, he's messed up. The dude is messed up. No, it's just that it's some kind of a tech issue. But what do I care? I get to talk to you either way, I'm thrilled. You I want to talk to you about this monstrous monstrous article that poor David French wrote. But before we get to that, you have a friend who is in quote unquote Twitter jail right now. When I heard your story and you wrote about it at Larry Alex Taunton dot com, I said, we've got to talk about this. So tell my audience the story. Yes, Paul Reed, many of your viewers, listeners will be familiar with the trilogy. The Winston Churchill biography by William Manchester called the last Lion. Well, Paul Reed, who is a West Palm Beach, posed reporter. He wrote that third volume defender of the realm. Paul is not a conservative as you and I think of it, but by the standards of today, Paul looks like a guy on the right. But isn't this the beauty of it? The shifting and the sifting that's happening. I mean, here's a guy, he's obviously somewhat pro Churchill. Absolutely. No, you'd love his book. I mean, the last Lion series, the trilogy is wonderful. And Paul's a bestselling author that book received rave reviews. And so what happened is last week, a tweet appeared with an Iranian man parading his wife's head through town he could beheaded her. Let's be clear, folks, in case you're having issues listening, maybe there's noise in the background. I just want to be clear. What my friend Larry just said. Last week there was a tweet. Where an Iranian man. He put this on Twitter, correct? Absolutely. Holding the head of his 17 year old wife, whom he had just murdered, that was posted on Twitter. Isn't Twitter wonderful that they're allowing freedom of expression because listen, there are some people who think that beheading your young wives is a good thing. And Twitter doesn't take a position on that, so they let him post

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. For as long as I can remember, I've seen people flash the peace sign, but I didn't realize there was a protocol to flashing the peace sign. When you put up a peace sign, if your fingers are out, so people see your palm, looking at them, that's acceptable. If you flash at the other way, seeing the back of your hand while in England and in Australia, that's basically giving somebody the middle finger. It's called the forks in Australia. When you throw up the peace sign backwards, if you will. I never knew this. I never knew there was a right way or a wrong way to do it and come to think of it. I don't even really remember, however, I've thrown up the peace side. I saw somebody the other day comment that somebody had thrown up the forks. I didn't know what the forks were. Then I read the history. The first person who got in trouble for throwing up the forks, and it wasn't called the forks in England, was Winston Churchill. During World War II, when he flashed the V for victory sign, which became the peace sign, except he did it backwards. I didn't know there was a protocol. I didn't know what mattered. That's not like I walk around throwing the peace sign a lot. I've thrown it up in pictures because everybody does that. Who knew?

It's Not Enough to Insinuate, You Need Proof!

"I want to make a really clear that there is no issue I am shying away from on the contrary. I have been working on in depth investigations of some of the most important issues that are on our minds that have been completely taboo, but nevertheless, I am fearlessly grabbing a hold of these issues, but doing it in a way that I think really busts the subject because it's not enough here to put out insinuations and suggestions and I think this is what happened and this must be what occurred and I can't really believe that the outcome was the way it was. In other words, you have to go beyond possibilities and probabilities to certainties. You have to go to this is what happened and you know what? I can prove it. And that's very much my approach. I want to go into this from a position of strength so that no matter what the force is arrayed against me are, I mean, I love the quotation from Winston Churchill, where he says and in fact, this is not the exact quote I'm paraphrasing it, but he goes when it comes to reality when it comes to the truth. You can ignore it. You can revile it. You can disregard it. You can suppress it. You can do whatever you want, but in the end of the day, there it is.

"Refunding welcome to the dennis prager show coming to you from minneapolis. Minnesota state where nice people elects gusting at should be their motto. We are nice and we elect fool shows you that there is no relationship between nice and wise none zero. There are not nice people who are wise and they're nice people with no wisdom now. That was the confusion with regard president. Our previous president right. President trump was not deemed as an individually nice person. I have no comment on it. I i. i am not capable of assessing him personally. Just i probably can't assess most people. I don't know well personally unless it's obvious that they have done terrible things in their personal life. Now you could say well. He has But then if that's the case he's with many presidents with regard to infidelity which is a separate issue in any event He he did not act nice often. That is absolutely correct however He was a great president. That since i elect presidents not nice people. That's all that matters to me to To people who confuse nice with with capability He was a bad precedent. They say that. Joe biden is nice. I have no way. No way of assessing. I think he's the biggest crook to ever be president objectively speaking but he might be nice however he is completely destructive. President people don't know how to assess leaders. They really don't do. I know if winston churchill was personally nice. Frankly i don't care for god's to judge. I can only say that he was the right man at the right time to fight the greatest evil of time.

"He could light his own cigarette and start it. Now what could you do with a knife again. The year again like think about that. Yeah think about that. Thirty two a year. After dracula and frankenstein us. We get this. It's like whoa. If you have the opportunity. I i'm assuming it's probably on blu ray at this point but i have the The that has like the documentary about it as well and they talk about how tod browning like really got got like huge appearances at coney island after the movie. They became celebrities after this movie came out and he was really involved in the quote free community after that to lori and tod browning actually really did a stint in a carnival circus for a little bit so he had that lens when he was making this movie. And it shows and it's just so wonderful and yeah. It's just incredible that that came out that year. I love that movie. everyone should watch it. Okay yes everyone should watch it. All right hobbit now. This is going back to you. Got some g. e. g. spot action. I think for this one. I'm going to go with a more modern film. That is definitely horror thriller as well and It hits on some notes because growing up as a punk rocker. There's a lot of stuff that happened in this movie. That really speaks like traveling bands. That are just trying to do best that they can go. But it also has most brilliant villain performance of a little sean luke as as the leader of a notchback group of heroin kingpin kingpin as. Well we're talking green room us movies. Good what a fucking nightmare will wonderful surprise of a movie. The the a nightmare surprise of it just came out of nowhere and then everybody was talking about this movie. Yeah was it came out. Because of course because patrick stewart i mean of course. He's an incredible actor but such a different turn for him as an actor. And he kills it as this like older. Nazi fucking organizer. What i love about this movie. Is that the basic premise to not spoil. The movie is that There's this touring punk rock band that they Go to san francisco and then the the show they were planning on doing Is cancelled right. So a dude that interviewed them for for his podcast. Pnt every It like oh well my brother cousin or something you know. There's there's a gig it's pace well but like it's a little bit like winging south. They're like fuck it. We need the money so they go and then turned out there. You know these like aunt. The anti-racist punks playing a fucking nazi played nazi punks. Fuck off the right terminal. Right wing was A little of a soft language choice there because that was a And and then chaos ensues. And i don't want to get into the full plop at holy. Fuck there's so much tension so much real visceral like real life horror. That's happening in this movie. it's really it's like. It's not plausible. Because it is a fantastical outcome happens to these girl. But you could like actually see this happening that you're at this grounded enough then you don't need a ghost doesn't come out. You don't have winston churchill's goes it'd be like art hate nazis. I will say that Although i kind of wish there was a version where winston you definitely see the training of when eight. John patrick stewart. Oh yeah because the hard turn he does and he does. He does actually turns throughout the film to. Yeah he sure does especially at the end up Like so you really see a straight. Because you don't you didn't get a lot of that you know. Clearly you know he can act but you don't see you didn't see his his birth in love the stuff before that well he does this beautiful like very soft spoken evil vibe where like the walkom collided head. And then he has. These breaks at points where the closest to that kind of break that you've seen the mind must be trump tricks of a little bit bigger but this was a much cleaner like like arc of his character getting more frustrated. More angry brilliant. Brilliant fucking movie definitely. Check it out. I think is free on many streaming services at this point. Yeah yeah feel like right now. It is highly recommended. I love it. I think it's even on netflix. Right now so is it i. It might be if not. It's on prime or one of the big ones so So green room. So we're onto lowdown with each and a h. I had a couple that probably would have been more accessible or people already knew about. Oh h were halloween. Movie is going to be a man aside from halloween. 'cause that's a no-brainer. Yeah yeah but Just i remember. The first watch movie is like three or four years ago fucking fell in love with it and i was like okay. This is the one that i'm giving you. Guys the house of the devil nine film set in the eighties and one of the things about this film. Says two thousand nine. This is before doing the retro eighties was like the thing to do This is one of the first horror films to do the retro eighties but it was just a slow burn film. It didn't get picked up on. Yeah how's the devil. Didn't it didn't like take now team and like three years after it came out right but it's such a such a slow burn. Movie to like is a college girl and he's make some money and she sees the house it literally go to someone's house and house that she it ad in the paper. Pay this much house. It family wants to go out. Cool goes the house as yourself. How sitting starts here some weird shifts start seeing some shit move off and then don't say about halfway into the movie. Maybe two thirds of the movie. Then you start getting like it's got some really cool effects it's gets gory and in the last twenty minutes movie is a fucking nightmare. Absolutely so god. I heard aim is fucking escaping me. Who is a director that did lady bird if no one knows it. It's okay we will move on but was that she nondrinkers. Jeremy greta gerwig gregor she stars in house of the devil. She's part of that scott. Tom noonan from last action. Hero and fame. Yes oh god there's this whole crew people who do horror films and they have been dubbed called mumble gore and look up mumble gore no no ab- all of them baumbach director wayne guard sam simon barrett. All of it. They're all in that joe. Swanson chihuahuas lumbergh bag. Head is one of the big early ones. Mobile course is part of that shit creeped housing. Yes exactly but anyway you need to watch us because when you watch this as just as lowdown says if you didn't if you did not know that this movie was released in two thousand nine to i don't know about move whatever you would think that it was like actually filmed in nineteen seventy eight or nine thousand nine hundred seventy or whatever. They do a really good job of that shit. It is so good slow-burn definitely.

"As well so it is worthwhile with the new one the first time versus going with the original. That's interesting. i think everybody knows candyman. So because of the new one. I feel like i feel like there were certain people that weren't real horror fans that i would say that can't even was always coming like the lesser slasher the slasher. That was still part of the conversation but was never talked. About as much as jason. Or mike myers exactly and i always hated that when i was younger because like i watched the movie when i was younger i was like ten or eleven very uncomfortable. Then moving maybe very fucking fucked me up kid. I was seven years old. I saw that fucking shit and that ruined my childhood in the best way and i loved it so much see nine to cost us candyman absolutely the original though like that. Hit a lot of the marks on yle up freddie so much because it felt like there was something inescapable about the character and non that like slow trotting way that mike myers jason voorhees as but in that like almost psychological. Every wherever you go there they are. They're already there. They're not waiting. They are waiting for you to show up to where they are kinda know where you're going to go because they're in your subconscious. Yeah yeah yeah. And there's something so fucked about that. That i definitely like connected with candyman in that same way that i did freddie But the new one I think what made it so much more interesting to me with the new one that i like it better than there's so much nostalgia attached to the original that i can't really say that hits the marks and shouldn't really what's a sequel to so. It's not a remake slate as a sequel. But i think a lot of the conversations that started in the first movie work continued in the second movie and much more concise way without talking down the social commentary as much as the first one did to make the whites feel comfortable like this. One didn't feel like it needed to have that kind of dumbing down of language. And i felt that was that was really important to the continuation of the story. The is still mike candyman. Even if i'm not the direct audience that it's speaking to i get to learn a lot of stuff from watching this new version. That is trying to be safer in. Its approach in the first one. Which is the ninety two or whatever when it came out and that was kind of what was exciting about the new one. Is that. It really hit on a lot of social stuff. That i went. That's a good point when they talked about like artists moving into like bad neighborhoods and they never really took credit for the gentrification that happens. I'm like fuck. Oh oh no no hits pointed. It made me feel uncomfortable. But that's a good thing. Brianna is Oh wait you haven't seen everyone. It's all good comment to that. Like so bianca's brothers boyfriend actually called him elements visited by you. Would you did anyway. Yeah ham it was funny but no one really brings out cabrini-green as its own character. Yeah in this film. The greedy greedy self inspired the story. Line here because cabrini-green is a real place in chicago and got jatropha. So how do you have that. Same conversation on candyman. When the place that candyman was haunting and now has like fucking like loss in ann. Peel went and checked it out. They saw and it probably all right. This is where we're starting it was a no-brainer like i wrote it forest. Thank you Because the last building In cabrini-green that was a project building went down. I think in two thousand sixteen. I was doing some research around about that and it was like yes so five years ago last project and then he's billions expensive fucking apartments and you go by because we can only talk a couple of minutes but definitely check out the mountains of madness episode Because that was a great episode enjoy. Yeah i've had. I really did That's that's definitely worth checking out. Because i really did try to go into the differences in tones like you just kinda did with versus the sequel. How much you can talk about. Which what more you can do say now in a film to make it a hit like it does. Movies took the phone. No one hits. Yeah but that wouldn't have thought that would have flown a bomb like a motherfucker ninety two. Yeah now ninety two was not ready for this version of handyman. No no no or the versions of candy.

The History of US Presidential Transportation

The History of US Presidential Transportation

"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time.

We can't even imagine He he he he knew churchill. It's amazing and it was hard to get him to talk about these things. Frankly because i understood that what. I should cantu billy graham. I was shaking hands with mr history. He knew golden my year. He knew as you mentioned the queen winston churchill. He knew all the popular movie stars. In the day. Bob hope and john wayne and jack many et cetera. But then he had a bentley for the most part a working relationship with every american president from truman arguably all the way to trump. The trump wasn't an office. Trump came to billy's ninety th birthday party and at his table i was at that party. And trump was a businessman. So he may he knew. Donald trump Barack obama came to visit him. But all these presidents on both sides of aisle republican and democrat called on. Billy he really was pasture to them. But you know. I think one of his great qualities is he would not always disclosed details because he he respected their privacy. Didn't want to exploit it. And they'll probably goes back to what happened when he met his first president president. Truman billy with sort of blown up at that point becoming very well known. He requested meeting with the president. He was denied a few times. Finally being let him come for a short meeting. He walked into the president's office. He and his team were very young men. The days double-breasted suits with painted ties. White bug shoes and billy puts his hand on the president shoulder. Praise for him and he found out later. It wasn't supposed to touch the president and i and truman didn't like billy all that much because afterwards he went on the front lawn of the white house and the press came to him and ask them. What are the president's aid you any told them and then they said. Would you get down in praying. So billion to as team members that were in the oval office got done one need pain. They took this picture. Truman did not like it at all. Billy later apologized determined. Truman said it was no problem. Some briefed you. But he learned to be more discreet when he met with these important people and keep their conversations. He had with them confidential but he always was seeking to minister to them and point them to christ.

Things to Think About Before You Give Up

"Things to think about before you give up by mark chernoff mark and angel dot com. If you feel like at the end of the road with nowhere to go realize you're lying to yourself you've imprisoned yourself in your own mind by telling self defeating stories stories about what your life should be like what you should have already accomplished and so forth by doing this. You've created a tiny space in your mind a. Began to believe you're actually living in but you are not you're alive in a vast world with infinite destinations. Take a moment to remind yourself of this. Go outside look at the sky and the clouds. This is the space in which you really live. Breathe it in then. Look at your current situation again. Here's some things you need to consider before you give up number one. You never fail until you're satisfied with failure. Failure is not falling down. Failure is staying down when you have the choice to get back up. Sometimes you have to fail a thousand times to succeed which means you have really failed yet. You've just found a bunch of ways. Don't work so don't get so hung up on a few failed attempts. The you miss every new opportunity coming your way all of your ideas that don't work or simply stepping stones on your way to the one idea that does as winston churchill once said quote success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts and quo read awaken the giant within number. Two what you have learned is what's important life always offers you. A second chance is called tomorrow but the second chance doesn't mean anything if you haven't learned from the events of today you have to acknowledge your troubles the gather strength from them and laugh at your mistakes but learn from them.

His father hip trade him that was on the he couldn't buy. Yes so yeah. Randolph in pamela ended up getting divorced. And you you make the case that really that kind of harmed relationship between churchill and randolph. Because randolph just for the rest of his life pretty much felt that churchill was responsible for like he knew about it need took pamela side over his side. Yeah i think he was as if not needed. Winston condign that relationship. And i think run. That would've accused him of actually being the passive behind it. You know the daily mail in in when they realize the mike mccann in england at a headline which described winton is having camped out his doctrinal which made strong but run. The i think he just couldn't get over it even years later when winston with the sort of frail old weak passing sitting on aristotle onassis. Your runoff would still be berating him. He'd be screaming in his face. It was something that cal randolph deeply. And no matter how many times he tried to heal that wound. He he could never quite staunch the blood. It would still have that him. Decades later in the thing. That amazed me as i was reading the leader of the warriors the relationship was that okay churchill. He's leading the allies in world war two but at the same that's a big undertaking but the same time he's got all this family drama going on. I'm just like how does this guy doing this. Like how is he dealing with like his son yelling atom his wife being mad at him. Because you know his you know. He's he's forgiving his son he's got daughter-in-law like how how did he. How did this guy do that without complete heart attack. I think most people would have just died. I'm going to think one of the interesting. Things is a lot of the times his sort of biggest flare ups who ran though happened around time of quays tension in the in the war so Best the terrible arguments they had. After randall found out the homina had been chasing on him came just as the japanese. Were rampaging frazier in late. Ninety forty one early nine hundred forty and there's an polling round. They have in nine hundred forty five in the summer of nineteen forty four just after d day when they things were going pretty well. There was still a lot up up in the so. He's typical today.

And i love him out the window so in crashed to the ground and he just carried on talking but mostly it was arguments was arrogant. He was clever and he thought he knew better than anyone else was. Never afraid of speaking up. Which is a really admirable quality sometimes but kelly cook him to of trouble and this also he starts seeing like what people described as those bloody rose between winston and ran off. What kind of arguments would they get in. I mean basically it would be a yelling matches essentially. Yeah i mean the team loved each other mean really deeply loved each other and i think that love meant that. Oh that affection commotion meant that most time they would like adoring couple. You know they tell each other how wonderful they were They spend they spend weekends in each company that go on holiday together. They go drinking together. They eat in restaurants together. They plot together. They'd go hunting together that close proximity meant that when things went wrong that was so charged they went really really wrong and they with two men just got gun show in tempus netted run of control himself when he lost his temper in Chaz he stole winston had exactly the same folds and the arguments they had wherever tiny things. They were seed slights. They were like you sort of tumultuous romantic relationship that they could be jealous of each other. They could be jealous if they could be disapproving of his behavior and then very often. Winston was brilliant bringing about together He founded his son's friendship and his sons love couldn't bad the anything could stand in the way ostrich huge document winston would bear found gang. Cartier's the by a bracelet or watch for his son to try make up but there were times when their kids precise face. The pain winston's wife and run. Those mother refused to be in the same room. must have been terrified to say it by bake banned by drank a by loud voices thereby sure of themselves and they didn't care what anyone else thought about them or speed of clementine. Like this was another this added to the tension between with churchill randolph. Because clementine was extremely protective of winston churchill. She even said that. Like my whole life now once they got married like devoted to churchill winston in his career. And like randolph. Got in the way of that in clementine. I mean she it kinda. i mean. She didn't really like her son. I mean not that i like. She didn't like randolph at all. I mean what was that relationship. Like between randolph clinton's randolph resented his mum mother for pouring everything she had into his father and it was very leftover for the other children and i don't think he ever favor for that and as far as team is concerned. I think she sold randolph. Incarnation build west parts for her husband. She admired winston immensely but she listen knew that he was susceptible to extravagance gambling and drinking and anitta. She thought run. The was a bad influence. Have his father which is sort of a strange way behind the world. And i think She was deeply jealous of him. Because winston in brenda for years clearly privileged him over anybody else including her she. She thought that she was at the center of his life. And then as randolph twenties. She realizes that she's being pushed to its edges. And i think she found that very hard and so they win in a sense. They are in constant competition for winstons affectionate. Love and attention on that mended. That relationship was incredibly uneasy suspicious. And did it affect the clementines and winston's marriage like was there tension there because of randolph. I think for longtime because winston unin in what was going on and in anyone else's head or heart apart from his own i think he didn't notice but as time went on i think became. Maybe the only significant argument that he and had you know they this. This was the one thing in marriage. The friend to push them apart. Because i'm has long successful bond Fifty years but randolph was the anything became between them because clementine The rundle could potentially be the end of winston. The with randolph could be the reason that winston wouldn't go onto to achieve over his dreams until she did everything she could to try and protect winston from his son was. Winston was obsessed with randolph. He wanted to spend as much time as he could with them. He wanted to do everything he could to help. Run off and so they two views. They couldn't be reconciled. Quick break for words more sponsors using talks based feels a little like having a therapist in your pocket being able to reach out to your therapist or psychiatrist anytime from anywhere makes taking care of your mental health easy.

"Winston churchill once said of his only son. I love randolph. But i don't like him. it's a cinnamon. Many apparent with a tumultuous relationship with one of their children can relate to in well describes both how winston felt about randolph. And how randolph felt about his father by guest details winston randolph's incredibly close and yet terribly complex combustible relationship in his new book churchill and son. Same is josh ireland. We begin our discussion with how winstons own harsh in neglectful. Father influenced his decision. The much more involved ultimate indulgent family man and the way. He's spoiled a son who has already inclined towards appalling behavior. Josh describes the manner in which winston and randolph both bonded and fought in the effect. The trouble randolph caused had on the relation between winston and his wife. We think how world war two in the way winston may have encouraged randolph's wife to cheat on him with an american diplomat -ffected randolph's relationship with his father for the worse. Josh explains the outside expectation. Winston had for randolph in the points. At which father and son respectively realized it never be fulfilled. The lesson to be taken from their story about the cost of parents imposing their own dreams on their children. We conversation discussing why it is that children of great leaders really turn out well themselves for himself observed. Nothing grows in the shadow of a great oak tree. After the show's over check show notes at a whim dot is slash churchill inside all right josh ireland. Welcome to the show thanks. We'll really place. Beyond so you got a new biography out about winston churchill. But this isn't just any other regular. Winston churchill. Biography relook at the entirety of his life. You focus in on his relationship with his first. Born son randolph. Churchill cruise. what kick-started your project and looking at in writing a biography of this father son relationship. I mean it's quite wait. I mean i. I can pinpoint exactly where i was in when i was on holiday and i was reading. Ben macintyre is ready. Get book about the eddie days. If britain's sas and right in the middle of narrative suddenly randolph as winston makes this extraordinary cameo right in the middle of the desert least tough soldiers on its fat drunk angry. Clever breeds damage. Ma'am so strides in under Steals the show for a few pages and then disappears off. And i just got me thinking i. I realized that nothing about this. I'm nights badia weber. Winston had a son. And then the more i read about runoff mobilized is really strange fruit many biographies of winston run. The belly. a pays when actually when you look how winston fellow by him run off the absolute center of his life and that may be realized it was a different way of kick winston sort of different way of understanding as maybe the more human more emotional vulnerable thicker and the other thing. I was really interested in. You know what it's like to grow with the man. He is regarded as the great president history in effect the house anita at the kind of build a life in waiting long and punishing saturday. Hoping seen this conversation it was the the relationship was fraught. I mean that's an understatement. I think and to understand churchill's relationship with his son rand off. You really have to understand churchill's relationship with his own father who is also named randolph. Lord randolph ki tells about lord randolph. Like what was he like. And then we can talk about you. Know his relationship with his son. Winston churchill lord when interesting in controversial incidents strange figures in the nineteenth century. He was a son of jake. Strange flamboyant crew daring figure. He revolutionized party and just Powers his bras. they throw away in a gumbo. Outside of his political life he led an extravagant existence. he spent wildly in his wife. Jenny punched into profound long even alongside that he was suffering from progressive brain disease. Which at the time was probably syphilis but now seems to be something unidentified but which has allowed same symptoms so his brain was rotating. His body was rooting even as he was sort of stepping away from the political limelight. but dangerous. This excitement left nice bikes a tool for his two children. Winston and mrs youngest jack and that meant the winston was very sensitive. Shy child bis desperate for attention from a father. Who bally's in tonight's him until the terrible Lord randolph case to address a political. Meet in brighton way. His son was a school and he didn't even bother to cross the right to say light with sun the country his moves in beacon titled his son was whenever winston Foam any kind of fun with him. It had this horrible reviewed grandfather basically told him that he was worthless. We've never going to amount to nothing. And he was almost ashamed. Happens the sun which had massive long lasting effects on psychological impact on winston. And i mean what's yeah. Some of these letters are just brutal where he's writing his father and his father's dresses him down. I think there was a moment. Where churchill he decides to join the military but it wasn't cavalry like it was something like that you know randolph is like yeah. You're pathetic you're never going to amount to. It's can't imagine any father talking to the lineup To do at once is pretty bad but you did it repeatedly even the last letty bites to in just before he dies. Saying you're never gonna amount to anything. You're failure fetig stupid you're worthless. You know he said you're going to become a degenerate. You're going to degenerate into a shabby few todd. Existence and winston goleta and. He never saw his father again. They with the last words he had from his father. And what's so shocking about this. Despite being treated so poorly by his father churchill. He still deeply admired and loved his father. Like why what was going on there. I mean can you. Can you figure did you figure out like why churchill had this romantic ideal of his father. Even though is fought in the reality is father was nowhere near that ideal. I think it was psychologically essential for him. I think he retreated into a sort of fantasy way. He believed that his father would have grown to love under mine. Respect him and everything he did a right through. The cost of his life was part of this dialogue with his father in trying to persuade his father's ghost that he was worthy defection. He hasn't been given in a fatty forty sixty s beforehand. Does this extraordinary short story. Bit winston rights last of his life where he imagines his father battalion to Entity never stop talking to his father thinki- about further but i think he just needed to believe his father would ultimately have to love respect him say he had that fencing and submit throughout the entire existence in. Do you think trickles. Will you know his terrible relationship with his dad. Do you think that helped him. Become the winston. Churchill that led england during world war two. Yeah undoubtedly i think i think the sort of damage that was will in him eventually noted that drove his ambition His sense of purpose and it made him get further and harder than i think he would have otherwise it. That's what instilled in him master ferocious work ethic that banning designed to prove himself say his grim irony that Britain's survival in nineteen forty was old pendant on the billion cruel behavior for man six years beforehand. I think wasn't randolph. That wrote might have been winstons like something like you know. Most great men like even thought about this like most great men. They had like a really bad childhood. And that's winston's entire line. Yeah he really. He really thought sensual as part of this. Great great man to be subject subjected to that kind of brutality as a as a young person which is what makes his attempts to mould on seemingly spiff s in that he took exists. You need the different.

"Would she submit to it. With the growing bounding ambitions and assertions of the new German German empire consent to a situation in which very politely no doubt very gradually perhaps but still very surely the impression would be conveyed her will was no longer the final law of Europe so if Germany and her emperor would accept the same sort of restraint that France Russia and England had long been accustomed to and would live within her rights as an equal in a freer and easier world. All all would be well but would she would. She tolerate the gathering under an independent standard of nations outside her system strong enough to examine her claims only as the merits appealed to them and to resist aggression without out fear. The history of the next ten years was to supply the answer side by side with these slowly. marshalling and steadily arming antagonisms between the greatest powers processes of degeneration or at work in weaker empires almost equally dangerous to peace forces. Were alive in Turkey which threatened with destruction the old regime and its abuses on which Germany had chosen to lean gene the Christian states of the Balkans growing stronger year by year awaited an opportunity community to liberate their compatriots still writhing under Turkish.

It only watched with arden is the decay of Turkey Turkey and the unrest of Austria. It was certain from all these regions the south and of the East there would become a succession of events deeply agitating both to Russia and Germany to create the unfavourable conditions nations for herself in which Germany afterwards brought about the war. Many acts supreme unwisdom on the part of her rulers. There's were nevertheless still necessary. France must be kept in a state of continued apprehension the Russian nation not the Russian court alone must be stung by some violent affront inflicted in their hour of weakness. The slow deep restrained antagonism of the British Empire must be roused by the continuous and repeated challenge to the seapower by which it lived then and then only could those conditions be created under winch Germany by an act of aggression would bring into being against her a combination strong enough to to resist and ultimately to overcome her. Might there was still a long road to travel before the vials of Wrath. Were Fall for ten years. We were to journey anxiously along that road so it was for a time the fashion to write as if the Persian government during these ten years were either entirely unconscious of the approaching danger or had a load of secret matters and deep forebodings on their minds hidden hidden altogether from the thoughtless nation. In fact however neither of these alternatives taken separately they was true and there is a measure of truth in both of them taken together. The British government the parliament's out of which it sprang did not believe in the approach of Great War and were determined to prevent it but at the same time the sinister hypothesis was continually present in their thoughts and was repeatedly brought to the the attention of ministers by disquieting incidents and tendencies during the whole of those ten years. This duality and discordance. where the keynote of British politics and those whose duty it was to watch over the safety not of the country lived simultaneously in two different worlds of thought there was the actual visible world old with its peaceful activities and cosmopolitan aims and there was a hype that goal world a world beneath neath the threshold as it were a world at one moment utterly fantastic at the next seaming about to leap into reality a world of monstrous shadows moving in convulsive combinations and through vistas of fathomless.

"Preface from October Twenty Fifth Breath Nineteen Eleven to May Twenty Eighth Nineteen fifteen. I was in the words of the Royal Letters. Patent and orders in council responsible to crown and parliament for all the business of the admiralty. This period comprised is the final stage in the preparation against a war with Germany the mobilisation and concentration of the fleet before the outbreak the Organization of the blockade the gathering in nineteen fourteen of the imperial forces from all over the world the clearance from the oceans of all the German cruisers and commerce destroyers and the reinforcement of the fleet by new construction in nineteen fourteen and Nineteen fifteen the frustration I and defeat of the first term in submarine attack upon merchant shipping in Nineteen fifteen and the initiation of the enterprise against the Dardanelles. It was marked before the war by a complete revision of British naval or plans plans by the building of a fast division of battleships armed with fifteen inch guns and driven by oil fuel by the proposals rejected by Germany for a naval holiday and and by the largest supplies tell then ever voted by parliament for the British fleet. It was distinguished during the war. The victories of the Hella Gland bite of the Falkland Islands and the Dagger Bank and for the attempt temped to suck are Antwerp. It was memorable for the disaster to the three cruisers off the Dutch coast. The loss of Admiral craddock's squadron at Coronel and the failure of the navy to force the Dardanelles. Many accounts of these matters have been published both here and abroad. Most of the principal actors have unfolded their story. Oh Lord Fisher Lord Jellicoe Lord French. Lord Kitchener's biographer Lord Hague's staff staff and many others of less importance half with the utmost fullness and freedom given their account these and and other wartime events and of the controversies arising out of them. The German accounts are numerous and authoritative have admirals interprets and sheer have told their tails. Sir Julian Corbett the official show historian has in a thousand pages recorded the conduct of the naval war during the whole of my administration. Shen eight years have passed since I quitted the Admiralty. In all these circumstances I feel feel it both my right and my duty to set forth the manner in which I endeavour to discharge my share in these hazardous responsibilities. Sabella these in doing so. I have adhered to certain strict rules. I have made no importance Gordon. Statement of fact relating to naval operations or Admiralty Business on which I do not possess unimpeachable documentary proof. I have made or implied. No criticism of any decision or action taken or neglected wanted by others unless I can prove that I had expressed the same opinion in writing before the event many of the accounts which I have mentioned above enjoy the great advantage of having been written some considerable time after the events with which they deal when the results of schemes and operations set on foot in the early days of the war could be clearly seen gene and when the ideas and impressions of nineteen fourteen and Nineteen fifteen could be reviewed in the broad awed and certain experience and science of nineteen eighteen and after there are no doubt obvious. Conveniences conveniences in this way up. Treating the subject actors in these great situations are able to dwell with certainty upon on those of their opinions and directions which have effectively been vindicated by the subsequent course of the war and they are or not on the other hand obliged to disturb the public mind by dwelling on any errors of neglect or commission into which they may possibly have been betrayed. I have followed a different method. In every case where the interests of the state allow I have printed the actual memoranda directions minutes telegrams or letters letters written by me at the time irrespective of whether these documents have been vindicated or falsified by by the march of history and of time the only excisions are relevant matter from the documents have been made to avoid. We need leslie hurting the feelings of individuals or the pride of friendly nations for such reasons he's here and their sentences have been softened or suppressed but the whole story is recorded as it happened by the actual councils offered and orders given in the fierce turmoil of each day. The principal minutes by which admiralty business was conducted embody in every case decisions for which as the highest executive authority in the department I was directly responsible and are in all cases expressed in my own words. I am equally accountable together with the I see Lord at the time for the principal telegrams which moved fleets squadrons and individual ships. All of which unless the contrary appears there my initials as their final sanction the number of minutes and telegrams published in these volumes is. Of course I only a fraction of the hall restricted space and the fear of wearying. The reader have excluded much uh but lest it should be thought that there have been any material suppressions or that what is published does not truly represent what occurred or the way things were done I affirm my own willingness to see every document of Admiralty Administration Astray Shen for which I am responsible made public provided it is presented in its fair context sometimes a dozen or even a score of important decisions had to be taken in a single day complicated directions directions and recommendations were given in writing as fast as they could be dictated and acted upon without recall thereafter rafter. Nothing of any consequence was done by me by word of mouth. A complete record therefore exist. It's both executive and administrative action. If in the great number of decisions and orders which these pages this recount and which deal with so many violent and controversial affairs mistakes can be found which led to mishap. The fault is mine. If on the other hand favorable results were achieved that it should be counted to some extent as an offset where the decision lay outside my powers and was taken contrary. Take my advice. I rest on the written record of my warning. Should it be objected that in any of these matters many of them so highly technical a lance men and laymen could form no valuable opinion. I point to the the documents themselves. They can be judged as they stand but must on the other hand. It should be thought that I am seeking seeking to claim credit which is not mine. It must be remembered that throughout this period I enjoyed the assistance. Moyal loyal spontaneous and unstinted off the best brains of the Royal Navy that every treasurer and every branch inch of the Admiralty and the fleet was lavished upon my instruction and that I had only to apply my own reason instinct to the arguments of those who I believe stood in the foremost rank of the naval experts of the world taking a general view in after years of the transactions. Up this terrific back. I commend with some confidence. The the story as a whole to the judgment of my countrymen. It has long been the fashion to disparage the policy and actions of the ministers ministers who bore the burden of power in the fateful years before the war and who faced the extraordinary perils of its Outright and opening phases.

"Grandsons, quote, if you were to put Winston Churchill here today, does anyone really believe with all his experience that looking out over a very unstable fragile uncertain world. He would think this was a good idea for Britain to cut itself. Loose from the continent. Andrew Churchill himself implores you to reconsider niche with tool, this is an area where Nicholson I disagree. I think that although of course, torture was one of the founders of the European movements and said. Let Europe arise and he wanted to the Tutu never again to fight gold as he puts it with regard to from Germany when it actually comes to his and he became prime minister in April. So I take a nineteen fifty one through to April nineteen fifty five so just before the actual treaty of Rome in nineteen fifty seven created the repeated community. He did nothing at all to bring Britain to towards that. He he didn't join the on and steal confederation. He's enjoying the European army. He put out minutes, many of which are some of which quotes it in this book saying that he didn't want to get Britain invoked. He very much wanted it to be a success, and he just didn't won't ask to threaten what he saw as our connections with the United States special relationship, the Commonwealth of cools and our ability to do trade deals with every other country in the world, which was of course, of ultimately to to end when we when we did join the common. What about this notion? The remainders of this would be I don't wanna put words in his mouth. But I think it would be the Cameron Osborne argument. This is bad economics to which some of the Brexit tears, and here, I don't wanna put words in your mouth say no, it's not just a matter of economic, by the way, we disagree with you on economics. We can trade with the rest of the world more easily. But we also it's about much more than that. It's about sovereignty. It's about our national sense of identity. It's about whether we will rule ourselves or be ruled from Brussels, and they say that's at word in romantic nonsense, have any problems explaining this to an American. How would you feel if if the phone body had the had the right to to give over the heads of the court and the heads of you'll congress, and and decide to lose for you? And it something that I don't think any American would put up with ten seconds. And so I can I never have any problem explaining why I'm Brexit here. All right now explained to me what highly intelligent people such as David Cameron, Nicholas Soames, and George Osborne would be remainders. Because they obviously didn't get to hold onto the color of the the European Court of Justice and the and the way in which Brussels in my view impinges on British soap and all right. Churchill again, we began to the program by by talking about what a thorough Ristic crat. He was and how deeply committed. He was to the British empire. The aristocratic order is no more. There are titled people tottering around desperate to keep to keep their big houses in operation. Lenham is now working museum. You get to tour for fifteen quid the house of lords is filled with with Tunis's who've given life peerages it's over. It's just over that's relevant. Now, the British empire is gone and not only gone, but unfashionable to save good word on behalf of it. Even in Britain. What relevance? It's a wonderful story. Everybody agrees. It's a wonderful story. And we have proof of that. Because every single review says gripping the best one volume biography ever so forth. But what relevance does he have for us today? He has more relevance today probably than ever before he is a figure who Trump sins all of the things you just mentioned might the British empire and the aristocracy safe because his story is one of extraordinarily extraordinary, physical courage, and then allied to moral courage. He didn't change his stones when he was being attacked shouted down in the house of Commons and nearly de-selected from his seat by the conservative party and ridiculed lampooned in the presence on he carried on making the same truth telling same truths about it.

"And so I use them the diaries of I've in mice key, the Russian ambassador nine hundred forty three era vailable now, which they weren't three or four years ago. The the beta mccown's of the war cabinet, actually, which I discovered seven years ago. I knew that I would be able to use quite heavily in this as well. Go and health. Made it didn't made any use of those quite extraordinary. So I there was something on pretty much every page of this book. That's never appeared in a church will biography before. Will come in a moment to Churchill and action. Of course, we will. But we need to set the stage. I reckon particularly for an American audience with regard to to particulars. Here's the first Churchill the aristocrat walking with destiny Churchill was the last aristocrat to rule Britain, he possessed the unconquerable self-confidence of his caste background. All right. Make an American audience understand what that means. What did it mean to have been born in Blenheim palace? The grandson of juke. In palace. Of course is the greatest of all the British palaces. Even the royals envy the of over for blend him and the grandson of a but not as any Oji Duke of more bre, one of the greatest grand is people in the country. And therefore he had what today we call the sense of entitlement. That is totally massive. And he didn't care what people thought of him which in his life turned out to be an extraordinarily useful asset because I'm sure we can come onto the nineteen thirties later, but the attacks that were made on him throughout his life. Really you needed to have a rhinoceros hide. And the reason that he did have that was partly because of his agent class and background. He he really didn't sort of mind. What other people thought of him because he was so grand? Sort of been born in Ristic crat in the second. But was we've been the last third of the nineteenth century simply fool, so yes to is to have been born into world of total utter self confidence. That's right. But also, of course, a world where you privilege imbued you with responsibility to give back. All right. And here's the second vital piece of the background that I think takes a little bit of explaining for an American audience the British empire again walking with destiny Andrew here. I'm quoting from nineteen forty one entry with someone you just named the diary of I've in mice Keith the Soviet Basseterre in London, quote, whom he saw as far as I can tell you make out that he saw I've in my ski almost as much as you saw the king. It was it was very close. It happened. Should absolutely handsome, especially after the Russian and the invasion of Russia by Germany, right? So here's Ivan my ski Churchill has told me more than once over the years, and I have no ground. To disbelieve him shrewd old communist there. Is it true? Or not that the British empire is his alpha and omega close quote now today, even in Britain speaking well of the empire is just a nonstarter. So how are Americans to understand this man who had? Who well who's alpha and omega whose lodestar was the defense of the empire, the impove that he wanted to fend was not some evil sinister in Perlis construct, the nineteen sixties Marxist professors talk about it, wasn't fact paternalist concept something that the ninety percents of the history of the empire ninety percents of the native peoples of the empire was a good thing and Winston Churchill soul that himself up in the North West Frontier where he was protecting them path from the payphones in the free day in the Talib tribes.
