Fresh update on "world war two" discussed on Morning Talk with Martha Zoller
"Now was $6.8 trillion of spending this year by Biden. But we're only getting 3.8 trillion and one of the largest deficits in the history of the United States. This year. It is the Martha Zoller show, and I know there's a lot of people that want to compare. Um what we went through with Covid last year to World War two. And we certainly spent like it was World War two, uh, and to to say that for this fiscal year we are going to we are looking at a three Trillion dollar deficit. Is shocking. Now. A lot can happen between now and the end of September, But it's shocking to see that because there is just this No. Ability to understand how much money that is. I was thanks to the folks at the Dawson County Republican Party who invited me to speak there last night. I look forward to visiting them again, and I'm going to be speaking at the Clayton. Raven County GOP on August the 14th. That's going to be a morning meeting and I'll be talking to them about kind of what's next for the GOP, and I'm not going to call it GOP two point No. Because Um, you know, Lieutenant Governor Duncan has already coined that term. But what's next for the GOP? And how? How to proceed. You can join us on the phones at 770535 to 911. Let's talk to Tom in Oakwood. Hey, Tom. How you doing? Good morning, Martha. Good morning. Okay, so If you can. Granular, a little bit extra time. I'm out, um, tending to my crepe myrtles. And you know, there's a beautiful pink, red or white things that bloom profusely about this time of year. And I'm starting about a month ago or self. The Japanese beetle started to Overwhelm them or take over their leaves. And then, when they started to Bud, the Japanese beetles attacked that, and now the Japanese beetles are attacking the flowers. Now I could go out there and I could just blast them away with some sort of insecticide. But then I kill all the honeybees, which are the protectors and they're doing good work. They're pollinating them. They don't really hurt the plant. And and they're, you know, they're not hurting the most beautiful part of the plant. So this is a parable and it just struck me as I was out there doing that, like I go out in the morning. And if I if I just Okay. I knocked the Beatles off by hand. As much as I can takes me about 10 15 minutes going to come back in the evening, and there's pretty much an equal number of them that I have to Have to get rid of and I put them in my hand and I stopped him on the ground. And I make Beetlejuice. Sorry. And, um and so this to me. Hit that struck me. This is America. The crape myrtle is America. The flowers are the most precious part of it. They are freedoms, our Children, all those things, and these relentless Japanese beetles are the left, destroying everything in their path. And now they're on flowers. The most beautiful part, the Children and our basic freedoms. So we are the gardeners there. We have to tend this garden our freedom every okay. Morning, noon and night. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom, and that's my parable, and I hope it makes sense to others. It does. It does. And, you know, Um George Foreman was on Fox News this week. And he is one of those athletes that Won a gold medal in the 1968 Olympics the same year that the track people that won the track people that want raised a fist. You know, black power fist, and he talked about his love for America, and he talked about How sure he had had bad things happen to him. He had had things that had happened to him that weren't good. But but that he loved America and and he and his love for America was greater. Than any of the bad things that might have happened because his mother had opportunities that were better than the people before her, and he had had opportunities that were better and and it's that same kind of parable, he says. When you love somebody when you love something like America, you're not going to let other people speak badly about it. Because I'm with you, Tom. You may have things that aren't perfect about that. Crepe Myrtle Bush, Right? I'm a terrible Gardner. I'm a plant killer. So I am I am. I love that you can raise crape myrtles. Um My husband, though, has has a gift for a vegetable garden. And he's having a lot of challenges this year with that vegetable garden because we've had a cooler, wetter, early part of the summer. Um so but you don't give up on it right? You keep fighting for it, no matter what, and and and the and there's damage there. I mean from the Beatles. There's damage, but I'm trying to do damage control and keep that thing alive. Keep those flowers blooming so that I can look forward to that beautiful that beauty and even the neighbors going by, can live forward can enjoy it. Hopefully And you know, I don't I don't really mind. In fact, I get my language gets a little bit uncivil as I'm stopping on them, making them into Beetlejuice. Oh, that's funny. Thank you, Tom. That's a great analogy, And you know it's true, and I know it's It's really corny, but but and I don't first of all, I don't look at every person. Based on their skin color. I think this is so dangerous that we are getting back to where we have young people that are sizing up people based on what they look like. I think it's dangerous. It's very dangerous. But I'll just tell you a little bit of my story. I mean, my mother graduated from high school, but my father did not. Okay, now my father's family was pretty well off before the Depression. But they lost everything in the depression and had to start over again. Um, and that's part of the reason why my dad didn't finish his education because he had to go out and get a job and he worked something called a Scotch week because he was a single. Late teens early 20 male at the time of the Depression, and, um, he because he was single. And you know, you can't even imagine this Caleb today is that because my father was single, they paid him every other week instead of every week during the Depression. The married man got paid every week. The single man got paid every other week. We could never get away with something like that today. But that's what they did. It was called Scotch Week. Like hopscotch. She would skip over a week. They called it a Scotch week. So I did. Did they pay you for the two weeks or did they just pay you one week of paid you work a week for free? Worked a week for free. You got paid. You had to work a week for free or not have a job at all there. Yeah, but you wouldn't do that today. But back then there were no jobs not working for free. I know. So that's what I'm saying. It never fly today. So my dad, My grandfather had a butcher shop and It went out of business because everybody thought that the Depression was going to be the short lived things. So the people that he had done business with for years and years and years that worked on credit. Uh, he continued to extend credit. Well, the butcher shop. You can't take the take the stuff back its food. Okay, so the people didn't pay their bills, and ultimately he lost his his butcher shop, and so they had to start over again..

"Out what Joe Biden's talking about from yesterday. But first, um this is this story is crazy. And I let me tell it kind of in the reverse way that it's been reported here because this actually dates back quite a ways. So since, like 2015. There's a student Germany and, um authorities are investigating him for selling for possessing or selling stolen Nazi art. All right. So this is That a lovable dude. And and I also don't fully know all the laws in Germany about seizure and all the rest of it, however. So they're investigating him for the stolen Nazi art stuff right? And I don't think they have anything, however. Apparently an investigator comes by this guy's house, and they execute a search warrant on that looking for the stolen Nazi art. Like go down to the basement. They don't find any stolen Nazi art. But what they do find is assembled essentially a Nazi weapons installation. Robbie tons of rifles, pistols, Uh and again, I don't know what's legal and not legal in Germany to own or how it has to be acquired, or if it's actual Nazi. Um You know it's actual equipment that was utilized by the Nazis. Or maybe some laws surrounding that. I don't know. Um, apparently, when we get some of this other stuff I'm going to tell you had in there. You do need a permit Ford in Germany did and have any of that. In addition to lots of Nazi era rifles and pistols. Authorities say there was quite a few larger items, including multiple anti aircraft, guns, multiple torpedoes fully functional and a World war two Panther Nazi tank. And that's all in his basement. I am. Among the questions that come up in this how oh, by the way the defendant is 84. And had been cobbling this together most of his life. Adult life. Okay, So here's what is the man's military collection violates Germany's war weapons control that, Yeah. Basically, if it comes to Nazi stuff they have what we have laws surrounding all of that. What? Why would you own a tank and then keep it in the basement? It took it took 20 soldiers nine hours to move the Panther take out of the basement. But what if you need that tank? What if your, you know what if the the moment arises, were like I was so smart. I'm glad I bought a tank. You know, like, uh, what? What? What's the scenario where you need to take Zombie outbreak, right? When the tank can be pretty useful, wouldn't it? Forget around zombie? Some? We got Nazi zombies. Yeah. I mean, it was a movie series, right? Yeah, it was Yeah, you need to take I'm just saying that, But if it's in the basement, and you know you're 84 it took 20 soldiers nine hours to move it out of the basement. What do you think? 84 year olds going to do? It's not happening right now. And I guess he he must have built around it. Who or who knows? I don't know. But You got you got all the missiles torpedoes. You get the entire craft gun at the tank. It's all in your basement, sir. I understand. Like, you know, having a shotgun down there, but I don't feel you're gonna get a lot of use out of it so anyway. Um Really do it. What? I'm just trying to figure if they destroy all that stuff. For what Now they sell it to museums. Let us seized. I don't know. I don't know what the cause the value is, but they just It's a pretty expensive collection that the Germans seized from this dude. Anyway. All right, so let's let's get into this Joe Biden yesterday. Get over to my a booting bar here. All right, and Well, we had a couple moments we had during the speech, and then we had Joe Biden being asked the question and snapping at another female reporter. Right now, and I would point this out whenever whatever Donald Trump would snapped at a reporter. Which was what Any time one of them talked to him. Um, if that reporter happened to be a woman Person of color. A woman of color. Um, that was generally Used to point out that he only did that because he's a big fat, racist or a big, fat, sexist. So I guess what am I to take from the fact that every every video or every one of the high profile moments where Joe Biden snaps at a reporter has been Female reporter. I mean, I'm just saying, you know, there's more of a pattern there than there was with Trump, who just yelled at all reporters. Indiscriminately. But I digress. All right, so let's go out and start well, Let's start with the reporter snapping at the reporter. Shall we? Balance affairs is going to have a man you are such a pain the next But I'm answering a question because you known each other for so long has nothing to do with Ereck here, you know. I'll answer your question. Yes, veteran affairs is going to in fact require that all Doc's working and facilities.

Charlie and the chocolate factory james and the giant peach and the witches are all beloved for their colorful storytelling and memorable characters however shadow has followed these tales and their author since their publication doll was often described as being racist anti-semitic eh misogynistic in both his personal life and in his stories and how we approach problematic literature especially literature written for children is as complicated as the man who wrote them. Just ask those who were responsible for. Bringing his words to the world they often dealt with him across the ocean. And even that wasn't enough. Sometimes doll had grown up embodying this nickname of the apple which he'd earned due to his mother's adoration for him compared to her other children. He attended boarding school from a young age and dabbled in writing but his imagination proved far more developed than his literary skills. At the time. Still he enjoyed coming up with stories and conjuring new ones based on his experiences at school. Doll went on to enlist in world war. Two with the royal air force after sustaining an injury during a crash he healed up flew several more missions and eventually went home to start his new life as a civilian. He married american actress. Patricia neal in nineteen fifty three and together. The couple had five children. It was during her fifth pregnancy. Though when neil suffered three cerebral aneurysms.

He would refuse to give it to her until she used. Its correct name and this went on for ten months. Several years later doll began an affair with another woman you see. There was a reason why his wife referred to him as roald of the rotten
The New York Times, Washington Post, and Leftist Media Need Accountability Groups for Their Racist and Bigoted History
"As they do not condemn Marxism. They condemn Americans. Do they disagree with Americans who voted for Donald Trump Americans who are registered Republicans, but not rhinos and bend over backwards and apologize for their existence. The New York Times is a dollop diabolical propaganda machine run by demagogues, as is the The Washington Post. It is they who foment hate. It is they who foment violence. It is they who lie about history. It is they who lie about events. Not I not conservative talk radio, not Fox News. It's them. And their progeny, CNN and MSNBC. And the left wing hordes.

I think the New York Times needs an accountability group, don't you Mr Producer? I think The Washington Post needs an accountability group. I think the Democrat Party needs accountability groups all across this country. Where Democrats were readers and employees of the Washington Post and The New York Times can all sit around. And unravel their history. They're bigoted, racist, anti Semitic, anti American history.

Can you talk a little bit about that tradition and why you chose to do that with this particular book. Well i love pamphlets. they're short. They're usually intense and urgent because they're responding to a crisis in a certain moment but if they're well done. They lost their books that you wanna read decades.

But i can't remember something that made me want to do special effects and and i did i special effects for ten years. I kind of disdained normal photography in the summer of sixty nine. I was working in pearl harbor. It was a summer job between semesters working on old world war two dry docks maintaining them and in one of the dry docks. I found a piece of broken red glass. It was from an old darkroom from the forties. And i was just experimenting with color infrared film and i realized that if you shoot through the glass like a filter you get one set of colors and if you reflect in the glass you get another set of color so you could.

What a New Era of Big Government Could Mean for Bitcoin
"Yesterday i was asking the question about whether this bitcoin bull market is at its end and part of what i said felt very important to understand before we really know whether that's the case is if in how.

Would you would imagine naturally have some consequences for where. Bitcoin crypto fit in the larger world. We've been in a period of waiting of wait to see of wondering if there was going to be a transition. It has felt too many like the economy was heating up in such a way that inflation was naturally going to follow an interest rates. Were going to have to rise. Because of that in consequence the riskiest tech stocks that had the highest valuations have been in retreat for a couple months roughly the same period that bitcoin has been idling or going down. There is however a narrative counterweight that whatever the case in the short term of monetary policy fiscal spending has entered a fundamentally new era. A fundamentally new era in which bitcoin could be more relevant than ever. The potential for that new era is exactly what david morris explored in a recent op. Ed on queen does called covid.

The coronavirus pandemic has made government spending in program significantly more appealing to americans. It's something of a perfect storm. The budget arrives. After pandemic relief proved hugely popular and seemingly effective long-term rising inequality and other serious social problems have created more space for pro government.

"And then World War two ended and the British with through with their accord to set up a British or Israeli nation state. The Arabs We're allowed to stay if they wanted, but the Arab nations told the Palestinians to get out. They were going to invade and stop it. So the Palestinians removed themselves from the area as Israel was being set up. Israel declares its independence from Britain and the Arab nations invade and get their butt kicked by Israel. Well, what are they going to do with all the Palestinians who they had told to get out of the area? They begin to try to forcibly move them back in Israel in Israel says Nope. Can't come back. You left. You didn't have to leave. The Israelis never threw them out. That's a misconception. It is a lie. But the media over time started in the 19 sixties began to peddle the narrative that the Israelis were actually colonizers with. Never mind. They have a biblical mandate from God himself, that this is their homeland. And since the early 19 hundreds, everyone on the planet except Arab nations wanted Israel to have a a home. Now what you need to understand. I got a call earlier from a guy who was asking What's the big deal about a two state solution? Israel is perfectly fine with the two state solution. The problem is that Hamas wants a river to see. Position. Essentially, they want a Palestinian state that wipes out Israel. They want a Palestinian state from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, and that is code for Israel doesn't exist. So while Israel has been in favor of a two state solution, the Palestinians largely led by Hamas have refused to do it. And they keep quibbling over the issue of Jerusalem. It is the historic capital of Israel. Established by David in the Bible. There's plenty of historic evidence there was a Jewish, he Through speaking people there for thousands of years. Whether you can trace it back to King David or not. The Palestinians want Jerusalem holy for themselves. The Israelis have been divided over how do you divide it up? But they've largely handed over the dome of the rock area to the to the Muslims to oversee So it's not like they want that territory. They've already handed it over to Muslims. You wouldn't know that by most coverage of the American media. And now we know why. They were in office space from a terrorist group. Think about that. It's like The Associated Press B. You know one of the flights on 9 11 along for the ride on, they don't write about it being terrorist hijacking the planes. That's essentially what they're doing in Gaza when they cover a moss, But it's not only them you've got The Washington Post has an analysis piece out today on Israel's Iron Dome. By now, you're probably familiar with the Iron Dome. It is Israel's defensive system that fires missiles to shoot down Hamas rockets. And literally. Here's the headline. Israel's Iron Dome Defense system protects his really lives. It also perpetuates these really Gaza conflict. The subtitle. The system is Save lives on both sides of the border, but leaves little incentive for a political solution. The subtext of this article is that Israel's Iron Dome system is so good and protecting the lives of Israeli citizens that Israel doesn't have to sue for peace with Hamas, if on leam or Israeli citizens died. Israel would have to sue for peace with a terrorist group that literally wants the end of Israel altogether. In the annihilation of all the Jews. Hamas, the Islamist movement that rules Gaza and other militias has fired more than 1000 700 rockets into Israel since Monday in response to the threat of eviction of Palestinian resolute residents in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shape Ciara and violence of the Al Aqsa Mosque the Israeli made in U. S funded anti Rocket Iron dome intercept system claims to have stopped about 90% of the missiles. Israel has responded with a massive air campaign against Gaza reminiscent of the wars of 2009 in 2014, the cycle of violence suggests that the success of Iron dome may have the perverse consequences of helping to perpetuate the Gaza Israel conflict. In other words, by reducing the expected cost of bombing Gaza because it saved so many Israeli lives. Iron Dome allows Israel the act with less concern for civilian casualties and gives his real less incentive to find a political solution. This is a literal analysis. In a mainstream major Western publication that if on leam or Jews died Israel would have to come up with a peaceful solution. In fact, there's also been used reports out and from NBC news parody in Hamas propaganda that Israel's killed hundreds of citizens and Gaza. One of the pictures showed a man trapped in rubble. Being rescued from the rubble, and the caption in the story around the picture was that this was a man whose home was bombed by Israel and he was being rescued. Turns out it was a leading Hamas general being pulled from an underground bunker that the Israelis have bombed. It was not a home and it was not a peaceful Gaza citizen. It was a Hamas terrorist being pulled out of an underground bunker in which he had hid when Israel decided to respond militarily. Thomas's attack You cannot get honest news from even major international media outlets, including from here in the United States, because they're literally running off the space from the terrorists they purport to cover. It's absurd that that's where we are administration. I.

Going to have their parent or guardian received $300 checks a month under the new bill. That's more than 93% of American Children. Good or bad idea. Molly Hemingway joined me from the Federalists and Fox News. Good Morning, Molly. How are you? Great. It's good to be here with you. I am great to have you. I am going to get to that in just a second. I first have to ask, Did you Mollie Hemingway, Or did you not watch Meghan and Harry last night? Did not watch so good. I saw the commentary on it. I hold grudges for a very long period of time. So I'm holding like a 250 year grudge about British royalty. That I'm unable to break but season 11 of the Crown debuted last night and I the fetching misses. You and I were out to dinner and she confessed. She had it on record and the waitress that she was gonna watch it with her mom. And I just I don't conceive of anything of value that could be gained from watching the king and queen of woke, do you But ask around the federalist. I'll bet you'll find a bunch of royalists in hiding around the office. Well, I find it just interesting how people are so interested in in them, And I think part of it is a good thing, which is in America. We used to be a place where it was inconceivable that you would have this class of people that were set above and apart. The rest of the people, and we used to sort of leave every man a king here and so that that curiosity and fascination made a bit more sense than where we are now where we do see that you have more of an Elite structure that is separate from from the people. But also I think it really is an interesting dispute between two different values the celebrity culture that embraces Victimhood and self expression versus royalty who are supposed to have a very strong sense of duty and restraint. And Meghan Markle is clearly on one side of that. Until it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. She's also clearly on the side of establishing herself is Diana two point Oh, and a brand that can be monetized and I just viewed it all is a money making exercise, and I'm very cynical about it. But I have great admiration for the queen because she's Around since World War two. She talked about durability and doing your job She shows up every day for work for 60 years. I'm a bit of a hypocrite on my anti royal stance in that I genuinely like the queen. I'm concerned about her husband right now himself, and I feel bad for her that she has such a mess of a family. But Yeah, well, it Zen other countries problem, though. It's another country's problem. And you and I didn't watch but I can't believe many of my listeners did know Molly. Let's go to this. It's a revolution in child care policy and its unaccompanied by any financial education. I've been pointing out this morning that If that $300 check arrives in your house, and you don't need to spend it, put it into a 5 29, and it will double every seven years and your child's college education will be significantly less expensive. If you do that. Some people up against the wall. Obviously, they'll have to spend the 300. But it's a huge policy. Revolution is the most pro family pro child policy ever passed by any legislature ever. What do you make of it? I can tow like policy ideas that encourage or incentivize having Children and who understand that having Children also has cost associated with it. Um, e. I agree with you. This wasn't a particularly well thought out. Have you no policy proposal and the real problem that we're going through it in the country right now is that we have kept our economy closed. By mandate and long beyond even it was arguably necessary, and if you want to help out families and help out kids, the best thing to do would be have them in school have their parents working. They're handing out money is something that's necessary right now because of what the government has done, shutting, shutting everything down. It's not a great long term strategy. Well, now let's let's divide up. I agree with everything about this. This is not relate. This is not pandemic relief pandemic relief goes to employers and pandemic relief. Goes to the unemployed Children are suffering as a consequence of this, but the best thing you could do is reopened the schools and we're not doing that. And so that's a different issue. But if we're going to do something that which gets rewarded gets repeated. This is the first incentive to have Children. I think that the government has ever passed. Well, you see it sometimes when you have greater tax relief, like even the Republican past tax reform bill of a couple years ago, had much better tax credits for people with Children where, you know if you had a large family, we're getting Significant money money back, But I do think you're seeing since both Republicans and Democrats are much more interested in these policies, and also just the realization that we have something about Fertility rate crisis. You're seeing much more interest in these types of proposals. There was Analysis done, though that showed, unfortunately that these types of programs when tried in other countries don't actually have a huge effect on on the child bearing rate. Uh, that there's been a lot of countries tried to incentivize people having Children because because of what happened when they don't and there haven't been tons of positive effects from These types of government programs. You hope that this that we might crack the code here because it is so important for the future Health and the Republic. It's also it's also massive. I don't know what the other countries have done. But let's say you have seven kids, and there aren't a lot of seven kids families, though I grew up with many seven kids Family and Roman Catholic Warren, Ohio. It's $2100 a month. In money. That's real money, and people can do real things if they plan the right way, Molly. What I most object to is that These checks are going to begin to arrive, and people aren't going to figure it out. I mean, they're not gonna They're not gonna find it equipped with Ah wise guide for using spending and saving money. Yeah, They definitely won't get that. And why would the government be able to provide that guy then, since the government itself has no idea how to properly spend or save money, But it is an opportunity. I think for other people in the community to help people see what can be done The magic of compound interest how to properly divvy up. You know what you say What you spend what you Give to charity these air important these important things for all people to learn, regardless of their income, and there's a great opportunity for people to talk with their neighbors about this or for churches, too. Provide these types of programs that help people learn how to how to make it much more powerful than just cashing the checks..

Good or bad idea. Molly Hemingway joined me from the Federalists and Fox News. Good morning, Molly. How are you? Great. It's good to be here with you. I am great to have you. I am going to get to that in just a second. I first have to ask, Did you Mollie Hemingway, Or did you not watch Meghan and Harry last night? Did not watch so good. I saw the commentary on it. I hold grudges for a very long period of time. So I'm holding like a 250 year grudge about British royalty that I am unable to break but season 11 of the Crown debuted last night and I, the fetching misses. You and I were out to dinner and she confessed. She had it on record, and the waitress said she was gonna watch it with her mom. And I just I don't conceive of anything of value that could be gained from watching the king and queen of woke, do you But ask around the federalist. I'll bet you'll find a bunch of royalists in hiding around the office. Well, I find it just interesting how people are so interested in in them, And I think part of it is a good thing, which is in America. We used to be a place where it was inconceivable that you would have this class of people that were set above and apart. The rest of the people, and we used to sort of leave every man a king here and so that that curiosity and fascination made a bit more sense than where we are now where we do see that you have more of an Elite structure that is separate from from the people. But also I think it really is an interesting dispute between two different values the celebrity culture that embraces Victimhood and self expression versus royalty who are supposed to have a very strong sense of duty and restraint. And Meghan Markle is clearly on one side of that. Until it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. She's also clearly on the side of establishing herself. Is Diana to point now and a brand that can be monetized and I just do that all is a money making exercise, and I'm very cynical about it. But I have great admiration for the queen because she's Around since World War two. She talked about durability and doing your job She shows up every day for work for 60 years. I'm a bit of a hypocrite on my anti royal stance and that I genuinely like the queen. I'm concerned about her husband right now himself, and I feel bad for her that she has such a mess of a family. But Yeah, well, it Zen other countries problem, though. It's another country's problem. And you and I didn't watch but I can't believe many of my listeners did know Molly. Let's go to this. It's a revolution in child care policy and its unaccompanied by any financial education. I've been pointing out this morning that If that $300 check arrives in your house, and you don't need to spend it, put it into a 5 29, and it will double every seven years and your child's college education will be significantly less expensive. If you do that. Now, Some people are beginning to the wall, obviously, and they'll have to spend the 300. Take huge policy revolution is the most pro family pro child policy ever passed by any legislature ever. What do you make of it? I can tow like policy ideas that encourage or incentivize having Children and who understand that having Children also has cost associated with it. Um, e. I agree with you. This wasn't a particularly well thought out. Have you no policy proposal and the real problem that we're going through it in the country right now is that we have kept our economy closed. By mandate and long beyond even it was arguably necessary, and if you want to help out families and help out kids, the best thing to do would be have them in school have their parents working. I was handing out money is something that's necessary right now because of what the government has done, shutting, shutting everything down. It's not a great long term strategy. Well, now let's let's divide up. I agree with everything about this. This is not relate. This is not pandemic relief pandemic relief goes to employers and pandemic relief. Goes to the unemployed Children are suffering as a consequence of this, but the best thing you could do is reopened the schools and we're not doing that. And so that's a different issue. But if we're going to do something that which gets rewarded gets repeated. This is the first incentive to have Children. I think that the government has ever passed. Well, you see it sometimes when you have greater tax relief, like even the Republican past tax reform bill of a couple years ago, had much better tax credits for people with Children where, you know if you had a large family, we're getting Significant money money back, But I do think you're seeing since both Republicans and Democrats are much more interested in these policies, and also just the realization that we have something about Fertility rate crisis. You're seeing much more interest in these types of proposals. There was Analysis done, though that showed, unfortunately that these types of programs been tried in other countries don't actually have a huge effect on on the child bearing rate. That that there's been a lot of countries tried to incentivize people having Children because because of what happened when they don't and there haven't been tons of positive effects from These types of government programs. You hope that this that we might crack the code here because it is so important for the future Health and the Republic. It's also it's also massive. I don't know what the other countries have done. But let's say you have seven kids, and there aren't a lot of seven kids families, though I grew up with many seven kids Family and Roman Catholic Warren, Ohio. That's $2100 a month. In in money. That's real money, and people can do real things if they plan the right way, Molly. What I most object to is that These checks are going to begin to arrive, and people aren't going to figure it out. I mean, they're not gonna They're not gonna find it equipped with Ah wise guide for using spending and saving money. Yeah, They definitely won't get that. And why would the government be able to provide that guy then, since the government itself has no idea how to properly spend or save money, But it is an opportunity. I think for other people in the community to help people see what can be done The magic of compound interest how to properly divvy up. You know what you say What you spend what you Give to charity these air important these important things for all people to learn, regardless of their income, and there's a great opportunity for people to talk with their neighbors about this or for churches, too. Divide these types of programs that help people learn how to.

"world war two" Discussed on The Naked Scientists
"You're listening to the naked scientists with me Adam Murphy and this week we bringing you a special show about the science and technology of World War Two to mark vide now thankfully efforts to put an end to world war two were underway in Britain. One of those avenues was breaking the German ciphers. The code they used was called. `NIGMA ENIGMA was a tough nut to crack complex and constantly changing. Not only did it change every day. It changed every time you type too key so e would become Q. With one key stroke and then s the next. How did it work? And how do you break it? I spoke to mathematician a `nigma expert. James grime being Negro machine was actually invented by a German engineer. Could Authorship yes. He invented ninety eighteen too late for World War One and he would sell these machines businesses. He wants to send secret information and then the military's does use them as well. It's word it still. But it's about the size of a typewriter. It has a keyboard when you type on the keyboard. Your code letters actually light up. There's a second set of letters and so when I personally like T- then it's going to light up a code letter. Maybe the machine was not dissimilar to a typewriter. The code was contained in three wheels. Which you chose out of a possible five with twenty six starting positions some wires on the front and applaud just a little extra complexity and you to sit down and set that up each morning for the Germans. They would have a code book an everyday. It told you how to set up the machine for that day without dot key sheet. You know how to use the machine so altogether we have three wheels. Two point machine their position these wires at the front and the total number of ways you can set up the enigma machine is a large number one hundred fifty nine million million million possibilities which is far too many for codebreakers to check and it changes every day which is the hardest thing about the British codebreakers in the Polish codebreakers of how it worked but not maybe the details of the wiring inside machine and that's when the Polish we're actually able to work. Count the wiring inside machine without ever seeing the machine itself just from the codes they were able to juice or the inside machine and then build their own. So how did the British go about cracking it so the British thankfully they had a kind of a head start because they saw the Polish methods. The Polish passed that information to the British but the Polish method was based on a floor in the gym and procedure. If the Germans changed their procedures. That method won't work anymore. So that's why Alan showing comes in on showing had a different method for breaking the Enigma Code. Which is based on the floor in the machine itself? When you're using the enigma machine if you press a letter like a and if you kept pressing the letter e repeatedly it keeps changing the code. This is one of the reasons why `Nigma so to break e might not be the same if I keep pressing it over and over again but there's one letter that it will never become and it will never become itself. It's not much of a clue is a flaw in the machine. So they can do now is they can try to guess a word that might be in your message. So what the gems do every morning is. They would send a weather report. So you can use a phrase in that report. Let's use the word weather maybe veteran German. So if I can find with that word fits in the code. I can now start to work out. Correct position of the we use that makes up a bit of codes. Say the word weather. It's a guest spell using that. Guess we might be able to break the codes that day. They could speed. It took by building these very large bomb machines. Bambini machines and these simaltaneous enigma. Machines like twelve simultaneous enigma machines. And it was actually. A process of elimination was fast to reject the incorrect settings than to go looking for the correct and you could find the settings on a good day in under twenty minutes. There was something else that the facility where `Nigma was cracked up leslie parked an early computer called Colossus which could call a forerunner of the computers that we have today causes people may have heard of Colossus. And it's another code break machine that was at Bletchley Park Colossus were spilled to break a different code machine that the Germans were using. It was machine code laments and this machine even more difficult than a `Nigma was used by the top generals of the Nazi party. And we broke that code as well. Enigma has three inside and they turn as it goes along and it changes the code. The men's had twelve wheels inside so if he told me. About how many possibilities but enigma has a number of us? Something like twenty digits? Long the number of possibilities for setting up Levine's was a number that was one hundred and seventy digits long ridiculous number. It's more than our atoms in the universe if each atom in the universe itself a universe there would be more vent settings than there are atoms in a universe of universes of atoms. And it's two minutes check and Colossus is arguably the world's first digital computer if that's true if the Colossus machine can be considered the world's first computer then it was built in secret at Bletchley Park to break this top secret German in code and what happened to Colossus and all this work once the war was one after the war the was an order from Winston Churchill to say this joy or the material so they had a big bonfire. They burnt their work and the machines themselves were destroyed. This story was secrets under the official secrets for thirty years. Many of these codebreakers were not allowed to tell their friends and family so died without the family never knowing what they did during the war and any one thousand nine hundred seventy four one of the people who work pledge Depar- he wasn't a code breaker but he was in charge of sending the information out to the generals in the field. He A and secret came out and it was a bit of controversy at the time because they weren't supposed be telling these secrets even though this is one thousand nine hundred thousand four. We're talking about mathematician. James grime there. At least finally the work they did. The importance of it was revealed. Now it would be remiss to talk about the science of the war without talking about the science to put an end to world. War Two ended on the fifteenth of August. Nineteen forty five after two atomic bombs had been dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Nuclear Story and Alex Miller stained from the Stevens Institute of Technology New Jersey told me why the allied forces decided to pursue something so destructive after the discovery of nuclear fission which is to say that you could split uranium atoms with neutrons Scientists and many different countries started to wonder whether you could apply that to weapons purposes. And it wasn't really until nineteen forty two. They got a copy of report from the United Kingdom where British scientists concluded that. It was in fact very doable. For a country like the United States to produce nuclear weapons relatively quickly and relatively cheaply and that led to the beginnings of the Manhattan Project. The other side of it is. They were very afraid at the beginning that the Germans might be building an atomic bomb and any indication that an atomic bomb was billed. -able they not only saw as an indication that they could do it that that the Germans could be doing and they were assuming both because nuclear fission was discovered in Germany. And because they figured it was safest to assume the worst that they were behind the Germans it later became known to them. That wasn't the case but not until much later. All atoms have a core called a nucleus that is full of protons and neutrons. But sometimes this gets too full and it makes the item on stable that kind of atom is radioactive and overtime it will break down into more stable elements and every time it does it will release a tiny bit of energy but held you go about taking the tiny amount of energy and turning it into a bomb that can level cities so to build a nuclear bomb. The most difficult part is having the fuel for the bomb so this is what they call fissile material. It's a high enough concentration of atoms that can at will be made to split and split other atoms. So this is enriched uranium or this is a plutonium so both of these made up the bulk of the work on the project both the spending and the effort and the Labor and the time was in making the facilities that would be able to produce this fuel for the bombs and you also needed a lot of scientists pretty early on in this effort. The head of the military general groves was looking for a scientist who could run the whole enterprise and be his his sort of right hand man and he ended up choosing J Robert Oppenheimer. This was a theoretical physicists. At University of California Berkeley also taught a Caltech and he was unusual pick because he had never done any kind of large scale management project before. That's not the kind of scientist he was. He was a chain smoking cigarettes while drawing equations on a blackboard in a in a small room with ten students kind of scientists and But he ended up being quite able to the task and quite accomplished at it they had quite an array of of scientific luminaries both American and foreign involved the project and this was part of its success was having sort of the cream of the crop not only of the United States but the cream of the crop of many European countries including many people who had fled the Germans and had very strong vested interests in making sure that the Germans did not win the war or get atomic bomb for the Americans. Just the concept of radioactivity had only been discovered a few decades prior by Marine Pierre Curie on their lab bench. So did the scientists working on the Manhattan Project Really Understand. Just the scope of what they had to do. They were entering into this entire field with very little information about how to do. Any of this work on an industrial scale and so their task was to go from these basically proofs of concept to full scale application in basically one step and that's highly unusual both for scientists And for industry and so it turns out for example that if you scale up the reactors the way they did They'll work for a while and then they'll sort of stop working so this is the sort of difficulty and the most of these questions the scaling questions. They're exactly what would happen. If you tried to scale anything up in that amount of time they did not know the health effects completely of all of these materials. So they're simultaneously trying to develop safety guidelines while developing new mid artificial substances that have never been created before for which they do not know the health effects of them so they're doing a lot of things that in a more ideal situation you'd sort of slow things down a bit figure out say how toxic plutonium was and then come up with a safety guidelines and so they're doing these experiments that are incredibly dangerous that call them the tickling the Dragon's tail experiment. Which you basically get as close as you can to a chain to a critical mass to a to a chain reaction that are not in control of and then back away from it and They did have several accidents during the war After the where they had two accidents that actually killed people that even during the war they. There's in their files. Amazing right up of other trying to figure out the critical. Mass of uranium enriched uranium in water and got got much more radioactive than expected at. They concluded that everything was fine. It didn't blow up or burn anything down but one of the hair of the scientists who is working on it did fall out. And you read. The retrospect anything. That's that's really not very safe. That's that's not much margin for error at all if your hair is falling out. It's a pretty fat side so these are just some of the examples but take those couple of examples and multiply them by a thousand and you get a sense for how much unknown there was across the entire edifice of project. And how much did they know about what this was going to do? The lives that would take the cities it would level on the people who would die from radioactive fallout. They knew that it would cause a lot of fire. They knew that it because a lot of damage from blast pressure they had sort of a rough sense of what area would be affected by it but there were a lot of things. They didn't know Oppenheimer estimated the casualties far too low. He estimated maybe twenty thousand people would die at Hiroshima. Was more like one hundred thousand later. He said that that that bothered him quite a bit. Be So wrong They dramatically underestimated the effects of radiation. They really thought that. Basically if you were close enough to be hurt by the radiation you'd be killed by the blast in the fire anyway and the radiation wouldn't have a large effect. They were wrong on that And the reason is that you know the real life more complicated than a sort of physical simple physical simulation. Sometimes you can be in a situation where you somehow survive all of the other effects but the radiation is the main one you're gonNA to happen so they're later. Estimates is maybe twenty percents As many as twenty percent of the deaths were directly attributable to the Radiation Alex boosting there from the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey..

"Early rockets. In the early twentieth century there were several hobbyist rocketry groups which were founded all around the world but most notably in the US Germany and Russia. And this happened quite early on eighteen. Ninety eight Constantine Steel Kofsky a Russian schoolteacher. I proposed the use of rockets to explore space and he became the first approved that it was mathematically possible and suggested the use of liquid propellant which was quite a novel idea up until the twentieth century had been largely a solid propellant rockets that had been used in warfare. This idea of using liquid propellant rocket was tested for the first time in nineteen twenty six by Robert Goddard who was an American physicist who launched the first accessible liquid propellant rocket it only flew about twelve point five meters high for about two point. Five seconds which is not successful by our staters even for just model rocketry but nonetheless this set the stage for the space age right and then that can take us back to earn birth who In one thousand nine thirty he and his small group successfully launched their own Rocket a with h called a which was a small cone jet and assisting him with the was an eighteen year old man which is Verner von Braun but this was on the American stage. What were the Germans working on a one thousand nine hundred thirty seven the keenum Melinda Rocket Group which included people like? Oh birth and Von. Braun was assembled at the start of World War. Two their mission was to develop new weapons of war which included the four rocket Which we now know as the V. Two rocket and that was built and launched under the Directorship of Auburn Now v. Two rocket was meant to be launched from Germany in order to decimate cities right such as London but the rocket was more a weapon of terror than efficacy. A was scary largely because of its unpredictability because the V. Two travel faster than the speed of sound. It could be heard until it landed. Well this was of course terrifying however since its deployment towards the end of the war. The technology wasn't effective or powerful enough to make a major difference in the outcome of the war. In fact historian Michael Newfield says that many more people prisoners in the concentration camps tasked with making. The rocket actually died while making the rocket than who died as a result of its use in war but you know nonetheless. It was still an impressive piece of technology but in nineteen forty four. The veto became the first artificial object to pass what we know as the Karman line which is generally considered to be the boundary into outer space is a hundred kilometers up so this arguably makes the to a contender for the first human objective space. After the war the Americans took into lots of former Nazi scientists to have them work on American scientific projects. This is called Operation Paper Clip. One of those scientists was Verna von Braun and his group were moved to Huntsville Alabama where he led the. Us Army's rocket development team at Redstone Arsenal and this effort led to the development of the redstone rocket which had a dual role in the United States so it was used for the first live nuclear ballistic missile tests conducted by the United States but also it was the rocket that made Alan Shepherd astronaut. Alan Shepard the first U. S. astronaut to reach out her face. He actually became kind of popular in the public eye. He actually had a role in a Walt Disney film manage face von Braun. There is several other German a former Nazi scientists are in the Disney film Talking trying to educate people with Lola nations in the background on on how rocketry works space exploration work. There is even a case actually to be made that he is a part of the reason. Why Stanley Kubrick's two thousand one? A Space Odyssey station looks like that. Because in the fifties von Braun wrote a popular Article on Artificial gravity and space stations and so he's like fundamental also in our public understanding of space and space exploration even to extend the the space race have some ethical issues out there foundation and that should really be considered still von. Von Brown story is an interesting one and it's one that raises more questions than answers. Right how do we as historians handle a figure who in arguably achieved great things but also participated in horrendous ones in methodologically can be especially tricky because human beings often try to take control of their own narratives? Right we might ask ourselves you know. Did von Braun use. The Nazi. Party's power to help. Further his own goals trying to add war their acts of terror or did he actively support their mission. was he an anti Semite Or was he a victim of sorts? You know who was forced by threat of violence into working for the German state. It would be simple to write off the accomplishments of von Braun by claiming he was a Nazi or an amoral person with one singular gold he aimed to achieve regardless of the cost or alternatively we might be tempted to entirely dismiss his involvement in the war is being forced upon him and instead choose to venerate his role in the space race but I would argue that neither of those characterizations good history most valuable when we get our hands in the muddy reality of human existence with uncomfortable juxtaposition tragedies and cruelty and attempt to understand why people made certain decisions Rebecca Charbonneau from the Department of History and philosophy of Science Cambridge University. There She was saying we have to consider the ethics of these things and a lot of science was carried out during World War. Two and a.

"Wasn't? I notified. I mean, I remember when when Al Gore said we only had like twenty years, and what what we're past that. And and and things are are fine. I'm not saying that you should burn tires in the middle of the road. I'm saying that things are fine. And they clearly clearly overreacted aggressively to the very idea of a global warming climate change, whatever it is they call it right now, we only have twelve years. What else like this is the war? This is our World War Two. Boy. Escalated quickly. I mean that really got out of hand fast. It's insulting World War. Two was World War Two. That was your World War Two as well as mine. That was the war that kept Germany from taking over the world that responded to Japanese aggression by crushing them to the point where they had to admit that their leader hero. He was not a God. Publicly, humiliating them. An embarrassing them. Till they said, please stop hurting us. Was your World War Two as well? This is our World War Two. You can't verbally that much. You can't you can't do it. But twelve years left. That's that's new that is that is just absolutely terrific, and rich, and and all all sorts of special right there. We're going to have some more on this and Tony cat today at eleven o'clock, and we're going to talk more about this this thing in in in Lafayette, this this gender-neutral locker room because it's it's more than just that top line something kind of interesting going on underneath. You know, when when people talk about the bathroom issues and who's using a bathroom. I do agree with the general principle. How you feel should not have an effect on. What is real? But single use bathroom solve problems. I'm a big fan. Well, this idea they've gotten Lafayette. Might be part of that. My question is is it efficient? So we're gonna get into it. Because I think when people hear about oh gender-neutral locker room everybody goes to their respective corner. And people don't get into a conversation about what's happening. I'm going to get into that. That's on turning cats today at eleven o'clock as the shutdown now. No end in sight, absolutely, positively no end in sight have. I do I have any issue with a border wall. Offense angels. Absolutely not. And rationally we know that America doesn't the people who have the issue. It's not that they oppose the actual physical barrier. It's that they have not come to any place on whether or not they accept the idea of a border. And also the Oscar nominations are out. Of course, vice the attack on former Vice President Dick Cheney is. Is nominated for best picture. Of course, it is also nominated for best picture Black Panther black klansman.

But he mean rhapsody the favorite green book Roma star is born as I said vice lady Gaga also nominated for an actress leading role for a star is born Melissa McCarthy for can you ever? Forgive me. Then you've got actors on leading role that'd be Christian bale for vice Bradley Cooper stars born Rami molecule, or is it was it Ramey is Remmy for Baheen rhapsody, which I could see winning Vigo Mortenson for green book could one. But then he was having a conversation onstage and used the N word in context to a question that was asked and then was told he was a racist. And well, that's that that's over.

"Of World War Two though that the UK and the US built all of these institutions is supposedly bulwarks of democracy against communism and the Soviets everything from the World Bank to the IMF to you know, you can talk about Bretton Woods, and all these other things, but they were there for a reason it was to ensure trade in the world and some stability and some democracy. But putting troops on the grabbing? Do you agree with that coming out of World War Two? Putting troops on the ground. But, but we put together all these different institutions as a bulwark against things like communism, and democracy and free trade. Yeah. Yes. I don't understand how the question relates it. I guess I, you know, because you don't you brought him Nuremberg and nonaggression, but but part of that is subtle aggression through institutions institutions are a form. Some would say are a form of aggression. I'm using institutions to ensure these things happen. I'm putting pressure on people. I can fund the Kurdish rebels in northeastern Syria. You know? I mean, there are other ways that are slightly different from actually putting Americans in harm's way. I think that's just a way of diverting the the question of non aggression, and what that's all about. I mean. Yeah, you can certainly resort. It's not. Is clearly not a diversion. There is where is that line in your mind? Matt. Is in your mind. Should there be no interference whatsoever? And we are completely going to be isolationist inform or is it okay to arm. The kurds. What what is the line in your mind? Can we arm? The Kurds can we fund the Kurds in northeast Syria? Or should we do nothing and just observe it from a distance? Yeah. Well. Findings. I mean. Yeah. If you could do that. Break it down that way. I don't I don't I don't see that. There's any why do we need to support the Kurds, quite honestly? So that's that's my point. So you see it as we should have no involvement whatsoever. And I'm just trying to clarify because there is a difference between committing direct violence. Right. Putting troops down on the ground who are fighting. And then there is supporting people who we agree with. But we don't necessarily want to put our troops in harm's way. And then there's a humanitarian aid only. And then there's bet we got nothing to do here. Let's just stay entirely. I just wanted to clarify. I think that's an important way of knowing. How far people are willing to go or not go on this topic? Matt great to talk to you. Thanks for bringing in coming up in just a moment.
