"Graham whom you write about. Obviously in the book called. Billy graham the men. I knew he met and knew everyone. He minister to the queen of england. He he ministered to people.

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.

The korean war went from private to master sergeant. All kinds of heroic actions suffered all kinds of wounds shot hit with frag white phosphorus burns and also bayoneted multiple times including one bayonet stabbed that broke off in his chest. He in the korean war served as a platoon leader even though he was just a young enlisted guy and eventually at the end of that podcast and at the end of that part of his life. Us pulled off the battlefield. One of the most decorated soldiers of the war sent on a morale at it was basically morale tour and i were flown back to the to the white house. President truman and then basically went to london and antwerp in brussels and the hague and all the other european allies that were fighting alongside america in the korean war along the way he met. Mrs eleanor roosevelt. She encouraged him to go to college. He kind of agreed of the quotes. He says in the book is he. He agreed because he was already master sergeant in the army and he said what am i going to do. Sit around the enlisted man's club telling stories about korea so he was sort of not not over it but he realized that he'd kinda done what he was going to do. So he ends up getting assigned as an rotc instructor at a high school in denver because he liked to ski goes to the third ranger class. That ever happened. He was in. He ends up getting married to his hometown. Sweetheart mary grace starts going to college or he then he gets out of the army then starts going to college at the university of pittsburgh while he's there he writes a book called conquest. No war nowhere. Which was his first book about the korean war which he later rewrote which we covered. What when it was rewritten was called the making of a soldier. That was podcast to seventy three for the most part worked at a steel mill at night while he was going to college and then eventually commissioned as an officer in the pennsylvania national guard. Shout out to the To two eight iron soldiers all right so so then he goes to the. He's back kind of in the army and he gets them warnings at the army's different now you know the war is over.

And so today we're going to be reading so the first book that we covered we covered a little bit so he's written two books he's written. Three one was conquest to know where that one got rewritten. As the making of a soldier that was the bulk of what we read last time. This time we're gonna read from his second book primarily and it's just called soldier called soldier and lots of lessons learned but as i mentioned in the first podcast in two seventy three. There's some serious lessons learned about life and things get really crazy when he goes to vietnam as a battalion commander and we will get there all right so here we go go go to the book soldier written by anthony be herbert and he says this teaching young men the essentials of mountain climbing combat and survival was more of a learning experience for me than for them.

A President out of the loop- Black Ops
"Welcome kits, myths, and mysteries cider host kid crumbs today I thought with rumors of a new coal or between America and Russia I do something on the birth of black ops most have become familiar with the term black ops short for block world operations from television and movies. It started with the Manhattan project and later the Atomic, Energy Commission, the atomic bomb was shrouded in. Secrecy by the Manhattan project that wrote the rules on black ops to further that point the world learned that America had dropped an atomic bomb on her Shimon. No one knew at that time or was more surprised than the US. Congress none of the members had any idea that it was being developed by President Harry. Truman had been equally stunned to learn about the bomb. When he became President Truman had been the chairman of the Senate Special Committee to investigate the National Defense Program when he was vice president meaning that he was in charge of watching how money was spent during World War Two. Yet he had no idea about the atomic bomb, the bombs price tag adjusted for inflation costs twenty, eight, billion dollars the Manhattan project employed two hundred. Thousand people it had eighty offices, dozens of production plans including a sixty thousand Acre facility in rural Tennessee, and no knew the Manhattan project existed after the War Congress was given control over the bomb. They created the Atomic Energy Act Nineteen, forty six, a terrifying new system of secret keeping presidential system was governed by presidential executive orders regarding national security information, but the new atomic energy. Commission formerly, the Manhattan project was now in charge of regulating national security information for the first time. In American, history of Federal Agency would be run by civilians that is to say that the Atomic Energy Commission would maintain a body of secrets classified factors other than presidential executive orders. In other words, ABC would keep the precedent out of the loop concerning certain secrets it was. Also the ADC created the term born classified. This meant that the Atomic Energy Commission could classify something that originated outside the government through think tanks and research from private parties. In other words, the e C could hire a private company to conduct research for the commission and the result of the research would be born classified leaving the president out of the loop while all this begs. The question of where all this clandestine research would take place the ask through course would be area fifty one and what pray tell would this research be on area fifty one was born depending on your source about nineteen fifty one, the Atomic Energy Commission was formed in nineteen, forty six. So wouldn't be a stretch to imagine that early research was on spy planes like the. To the flew over Russia but one, year nineteen, forty seven after the creation of the Atomic Energy Commission a flying saucer crash on a ranch just outside Roswell. New Mexico wreckage and bodies were whisked off to area fifty one fast forward to Nineteen eighty-six six when ninety two people came forward with witness reports of what happened back in nineteen, forty, seven, slash nine, hundred, forty, eight. This nineteen eighty-six event raise the public awareness concerning the Roswell. And certainly peaked interest in flying saucers general underlying that interest is always the cry that the government knows about flying saucers and alien life. But the truth is that they are probably as much in the dark as a general public think Atomic Energy Commission to hammer home. It was President Bill Clinton, who in January nineteen, ninety three, the beginning of his first term requested that the head of his Justice Department find out if there really were UFO's that sounds to me like a precedent that's out of the loop.
Hiroshima: Atomic Blast That Changed The World Turns 75
"The United States dropped the first of two nuclear bombs on Japan. We are delaying the start of our scheduled program to bring you the latest direct report on the atomic bomb attack on Japan. It was on CBS radio, where Americans heard from correspondents like Webley Edwards report on the bombing of Hiroshima in Guam. We can W. Tibbets Jr of Miami, Florida. Out of the B 29 the first atomic bomb in history. Hired in 1957 former CBS radio correspondent Marvin Kalb worked with the generation of journalists who covered that bombing. Everything was dependent upon what President Truman or his top officials wanted to share with the American people, and that was very, very little. In fact, it would be weeks after the bombing. American journalists would even be allowed to report first hand from the destroyed Japanese city. Steve Dorsey, CBS
75 years after Hiroshima, they're still feeling its impact.
"This bomb has this frank for twenty thousand tons of TNT. Harnessing, the basic power of the universe. What I fifteen I am on August six, nine, hundred, forty, five, the US Air Force dropped the little boy uranium fission bomb on central hero. Shema. Making it the first city ever to be destroyed by a nuclear bomb. On August nine Nagy became the second when the bomb exploded around thirty percent of Hiroshima's population that were killed instantly many more died in the months and years to come. Now, the bombs brought to an end to world war two but the wool was horrified at the human cost. Russia has since become a byword for nuclear holocaust forever linked to the words never again. Now, this week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki joining me to reflect on the legacy of those events. Tashi. Tauch. She is assistant professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and the author of political fallout, nuclear weapons testing, and the making of Global Environmental Crosses. Welcome. Tasha. Thanks for having me and Michael Gordon Professor of history at Princeton University and Co. it is a of a new book called the age of Russia. Welcome. Welcome. It's very good to be here. Now, Michael the fear of the nuclear age is the period after World War Two when the US dropped the bomb. The fee was that the nuclear weapons would become a common part of conventional warfare but in the seventy five years since he Russia and Nagasaki, there's not been a single bomb dropped in a conflict. Question is this because deterrence works or have we just been lucky I would say we've mostly been lucky It's quite rare that there are conflicts between nuclear-armed nations. The major example is the nineteen sixty, nine border conflict between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. So there haven't been many occasions for things to escalate, and there's a strong incentive in those cases to de-escalate. There have however been very close near accidents whether missile just that needing on its own or people launching almost launching in fear of an attack and there. Have Been Plenty of conventional wars that could have escalated that way. So by and large, we've been lucky but we've been abetted by the fact that there has been an ambient taboo that has grown over the years against nuclear first use although that is rarely the policy of any nuclear power. Okay. Now from an Australian perspective, Tic- Japan was seen as an aggressor in the war, the war crimes but also as a victim because of the destruction wrought by the nuclear bombs have is the wool remit in Japan now aggressor and victim. Tarshi. Many pass through consider themselves as victims thinking that Japanese were misled by the government inter- Disastrous Wall Conquest. In this view here stands at the as the ultimate symbol of Japanese victim. But today is victim narrative faces two competing accounts. One is to recognize Japan's acts of wartime aggression, including tweeting massacres, forced labor, and sexual violence. If we see hero Shimmer from this perspective, it takes on a whole different meaning not. Not as a national tragedy, but rather as international event. killed not only the Japanese residents but also many colonial subjects and allied. POW's who are present in the city at the time of the Tom Bombing. The other interpretation that has also gained for Japan is to see the wartime conduct Japan as an act of self defense. This This lesion is narrative recaps here. As the ultimate proof of Western aggression. So fitting the predation of Japan's Joel Roles as. Aggressor and victim during the war will gain the upper hand in the future will depend on how sweet society around the world comes together and develops a shared understanding of the complex legacies or Corna reason on the war in the Asia Pacific region and back to the United States markle. There's a popular conception that Washington had to drop the bomb that it was the only way. To win the war, of course, the war in Europe come to an end in May of forty five. This is early August two, forty five is that true I mean what? What President Truman's options? So. This is a great question and it's one with a lot of confusion around it. Functionally. The only way the only government that had any power to end the war was the Japanese government which was in a position to surrender and the question was when would that happen would have happened later or earlier by summer nineteen, forty, five, it was already clear that the war was militarily lost. President Truman and the US government in general had basically fixed options of what they could do to try and encourage the Japanese government to take that move. There's only two that people usually talk about dropping the atomic bomb or invading the home islands of Japan. Both of those were on the table also having the Soviet Union inducing them to enter the wars of belligerent which happened on August eighth increasing the intensity of firebombing tightening the blockade of foodstuffs into the home islands. and modifying the terms of unconditional surrender to allow Japan to keep the emperor. The interesting thing is all six of those happen Truman pursued all sex and the war ended. It's unclear which ones were determinative. But the point is there wasn't like we had one option or nothing else. The US had plenty of options and exercised actually all of them. On the one level target for the bombs was obviously Japan on another level. Real target was the Soviet Union. How did the Kremlin of you? He Russia Mirror Negga? Second Markle. So. Really, the question here is a small set of people within the Kremlin stolen and his closest advisers and you that there was an atomic bomb project going on in the United States for years they've found that out from spies from Britain from spies in the United States, and they had their own uranium enrichment and bomb development program that was going on at I would say a medium scale What happens after the destruction of Hiroshima is I in absented himself for a few days he went into a depression and didn't. React to any of his advisors and then immediately massively escalated the Soviet development of their own atomic bomb. So they were both caught by surprise and not caught by surprise. It's true that the Americans didn't always think about the Soviet Union as a factor in any decision related to how the war was going to end but they also very strongly, we understood that the key issue was trying to get this the Japanese government to surrender faster because the faster they surrendered the less impact. The Soviet entry in the war would have to how the end game would play out in Asia, my guest, Michael Gordon, and Tashi Hitachi, and we're reflecting on the seventy fifth anniversary of Hiroshima. Tashi. One, hundred fifty thousand atomic bomb survivors still living in Japan. In fact, as a guest of Japan's Ministry of Foreign. Affairs this would have been in September twenty, sixteen I met one of one of the survivors now they're all in education and public law has plied an important part in shaping Japan's post-war Pacifism. Now, as generation dies out, is the role of pessimism in Japanese politics is that diminishing especially in the face of Rausing China Toshi? I don't think the passing of the atomic bomb survivors will diminish the strengths of pacifism in any short-term. The correctly memory of human magazine Japan has been fairly robust and the taken deep roots in popular culture. I can think of a good example that is Japanese animated wartime drama film released just four years ago in two thousand, sixteen cold in this corner of the world. This picture accounts of the wartime life in here she was a smash hit in the box office. Be, atomic bomb survivors will also active in passing down lessons from the world's first nuclear war to the next generation. The city's over here streaming nagy training. Many Japanese Ron Tears as storytellers who share the testimonies are waging victims and a second generation survivors are spearheading efforts for peace unjustice. Well, that brings me to today and really in the last that he is the end of the call was thirty years ago the US. And the Soviets on Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty non stop this was President Bush senior and Gorbachev in Russia in the inside at Union. Then just as it was collapsing now, both agree to significantly reduce their nuclear stockpiles and of course, the updated treaty between Moscow and Washington that expose I. Think it's February Knicks Jeez. So that's just a few days after the next president is warning Michael Do you think it will be resigned. I think that's entirely dependent on the results of the election. Joe. Biden has indicated that he would refine the treaty The trump administration has had many opportunities to re-sign the treaty, but they have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Russia's indicated that they're very interested in extending
Hiroshima survivors worry that world will forget
"Exactly 15 minutes past eight in the morning on August 6th, 1945 Japanese time at the moment when the atomic bomb flashed above Hiroshi MMA Miss Yoshiko Sasaki, a clerk in the personnel department of the East Asia, 10 Works had just sat down at her place in the plant office and was turning her head to speak to the girl at the next desk. That rather ordinary sentence is the opening to the extraordinary August 1946 New Yorker article titled Oshima. It was published a year after the United States dropped the first nuclear bomb on that city, a year in which the U. S government had gone to great lengths to conceal the human devastation caused And to depict the bomb as a conventional humane weapon. The writer of the Peace John Hursey, uncovered a very different story reporting on the ground in Japan, author and journalist Leslie Bloome chronicles foresees work and the reaction to it in her new book, Fallout. She joins me now from Los Angeles. Leslie Bloome. Welcome. Thank you. Start with Who? John Hursey Wass and how he came to be the one to tell this story. Oh, John. Her see was a young World War two correspondent who had covered action in different theaters throughout the war for Time magazine. And like many war correspondents, then he was pretty supportive of the U. S military. And he even wrote an almost overly complimentary wartime bio of General Douglas MacArthur and That the U. S military knew him entrusted him would be an important factor in my story and how he eventually got his story about Hiroshi MMA, and I don't want to give away too much. But I will say that how he got in was by being the perfect Trojan horse reporter, The perfect Trojan horse reporter. You've hooked us where we're intrigued when I got there. He didn't report this out as a war correspondent. He focused very much on ordinary people on he picked six of them. Why did he want to tell the story in that way? Well, I mean, the fact of the matter is is that the bombing of Hiroshima was widely reported when it happened, and it was reported as a very big end of days. Story mean there were pictures of the mushroom clouds that were released in pictures, the landscape devastation. But there were no pictures that were released or no stories that were released about the human toll that it happened on the ground there, and the government was really going to enormous lengths to cover up the reality of theater. Tomic aftermath in Hiroshima, Nagasaki They were very concerned with as the former secretary of war, put it, not being seen as having outdone, Hitler and atrocities. So her C and his editors at the New Yorker magazine became determined to tell the story from the point of view of survivors. You know, these are among the on ly humans who have ever experience what it's like to be on the receiving end of nuclear attack. He ultimately picked a widow with young kids, a young female clerk to medics, a priest and a minister with with a young family, and his idea was to create a sense of empathy. In his readers with these individuals, because, after all, not everybody could understand the physics of how the bombs works or visualized. You know, an all out nuclear attack that anyone could relate to being a mother or a father or colleague or doctor who's going about their everyday business. One catastrophe strikes I wonder if you would give us a sense of just one telling story of what he did find when he was there What it was that so shocked American readers who had no idea what was unfolding in Japan. One story that particularly resonated with him. He interviewed a young female clerk who was in her company when the bomb was detonated. This's the clerk I mentioned in the intro exactly one of the most famous introductions in journalistic history, and when the bomb exploded over her factory bookshelves fell upon her, and she was nearly crushed to death by books. And he thought How ironic it was to have somebody nearly crushed by books within the first moments of the atomic age, and literally when he was leaving here, Oshima and standing on the surprisingly intact train station platform, he thought that he was going to have to write about that line. And that's one of the incidents that most resonated with readers. So August 1946 The New Yorker publishes. What was the reaction? Both in the United States and around the world to this story. Well in her sees own words. The reaction was quote explosive mean, I try not to use that word in my book for obvious reasons. But he did, And the article was simply titled here, Oshima, and it comprised nearly the entire contents of the August 31st 1946 issue of The New Yorker. It's sold out immediately. You're even black market copies of it going for, you know, astronomical sums. It was syndicated in its entirety, and this is a 30,000 word story in newspapers across the country and around the world. And editors and reporters and readers were enraged. They were horrified by the testimonies in her sees here, Oshima, and they also began demanding to know what else was the U. S government withholding from the US public And then, when President Truman was asked by a reporter if he had personally read it, he retorted. I never read the New York ER. It just makes me bad. But the fact is, is that the government had been put very much on the defensive. That said, You know, they didn't want to look like they were on the defensive, but they were and they had to scramble to try to reclaim the narrative.

White House or Fight House? Tevi Troy’s new book looks at tiffs and turf wars among White House staffers
"With us and we're gonna talk about that you know the fussing and fighting vet says going on in the White House and don't think for a second that that's exclusive to Donald trump's administration you know it's kind of interesting anytime it's its whatever you're closest to write in history and other things they have to be the worst you know and so Donald Trump his administration's wise it just has to be the worst all the fussing and fighting in in fighting that's going on like no other president before well before you really jump that shark and think that that is the case then you start believing you're hyperbole I once you get your hands on this new book called White House from doctor Tevye Troy bestselling author and former White House adviser okay he's been on the inside he's known as and researched and studied this and he's right about now with his book White House rivalries in the White House from Truman J. trump Dr Troy welcome to the show good to have you with us thanks bill Bradley on talk about played out hello this is this is it this is exciting you know that you know to put this out because you know this conversation has come up from time to time and you always hear from you know the hyperbolic that downhole trump is the worst ever and then you you start bringing back some of the the stories and histories and now here it is you've documented it I imagine if you wanted to go back even before Truman we we have to do episodes inch you know volumes of all the fussing happening in the White House right no absolutely and and we know that they were fighting before experiment where we are perfect I mean you look at the administration of Washington and Hamilton and Jefferson murder each other's throats but the difference is they were cabinet members and when I try to get that in my house how the dynamic change once we had the creation of a White House staff there was no real White House staff before Roosevelt and Truman the first person to enter the White House staff and make change the dynamic in that certainly you have the people who are close to the president meaning in the same building advising him on foreign policy and economic policy and then you might have a treasury secretary or spectators biggest ticked off that somebody else is inviting in his area that was one thing that changed in that that meant that I wasn't quite interesting to note that that the dynamic in the entrance of more humanity just because the more issues right yeah look and government was growing mistake became higher and then also you have this right the best celebrity White House aide the whole idea of a White House staff was supposed to be people with a passion for anonymity but that went away pretty quickly especially in the Kennedy administration when he hired people who are already famous like orcas lessons or to work in the White House is suddenly how celebrity White House they had its own reputation has long ties to the craft and they they could get their word out there if the policies were not going their way and to suddenly you have this idea of leaks and counter leaks you can make you look good in the press and that also at the White House right now make that I talk about the book in the course that is continued and become almost like a to the degree of a tender green black belt when you talk about all this and leaking and stuff going on you know but bad enough that it happens in DC but now of course with the most recent refill we understand that even ambassadors in our state department is running rampant with it as well yeah well you talk about ten degree black belt and that that was Henry Kissinger I'll tell you one great story that's been quite how's that Kissinger was dating Jill St John a very attractive bond girl actress Mandy comes out in the papers that Kissinger's dating this woman and Kissinger ghost and extending complains that his rival Christy William Rogers leaked the information about your retaining but the truth is that your lease it because a he wanted everyone to know he was dating that the truck the bond girl would be he wanted to hurt Rogers any internal wars and bribery deposit so what happened what was it what was the conclusion that well well written exam would rail about all the leaking that happened at the state department and constant complained about it but just not your fat it but at least some of the time we know the kiss your will the guy doing the leaking and then blaming the state department and of course everybody knows because your date of birth second longer up there with a win win corrective measure like you would can degrade black belt in Plato's exactly so he gets the he gets the reward and the award let's talk about president Truman we touched a little bit on that I mean he he he was I guess the modern era of the expanding the staff and and really kind of bringing this into play and of course it's just been kind of kind of a a monolith that like the blob is just been growing unto itself right yes Sir but instrument you have the right there were just unbelievable I don't I'm a presidential historian I've been putting this stuff for decades and the story behind in spite house were were things I'd never even heard of and one breaks during the ministration is that the secretary of state George Marshall as opposed to the recognition of the state of Israel which is flabbergasting to update the business interest on July especially right there at that critical time because it was true and that led the battle for inferred knowledge meant of Israel that would that would be very fight with marshals on the wrong side of it Clark Clifford a junior White House beat it on the right side of it make an argument in front of Clifford Clifford and Truman and Marshall are all arguing out in the White House Clifford wins the argument Truman recognized Israel Marshall is still mad that he never again the clippers or mentions his name for the rest of life right yeah right because so it's pretty petty but yeah such as such as you can't be the government the illusion of the Kennedy Camelot regime you said was not devoid of conflict as well of course in Kennedy do you have this notion of Camelot music wonderful people sitting around a table can you never even heard the term Camelot elections administration that comes from our interview that took place after the administration after he was dead yes but even in the administration there was fighting taking place especially between Lyndon Johnson and Robert F. Kennedy canteen was the product any would be turned general and the president brother Lynn Johnson vice president that you hated each other going back to their time in the Senate together when we can't even the lowly staffer and Johnson with the Senate Majority Leader and they had these nasty nicknames for him brought Robert if they reported Johnson is ruthless corded phone and get a canny referred to by Johnson as bunny boy really didn't like each other and they're always trying well anyway and we've known that that that tension what is it was pretty extreme there between them what else within the Kennedy at Camelot compound anything else that you discovered yeah there was a a a a rivalry between artists less intervention before they collect their prize winning historian who came to the White House when the first intellectual ever worked in the White House and then there was Ted Sorensen it was not as well known but he was closer to Kennedy and there was tension between them that continued even after the administration because the two of them we're kind of bracing to get their books out first hand stories then asked her to stop and stop writing his books but it's different in different book out first plus you're obviously would not agree and there were and the race was on and it it colored their relationship there's tension between them that went on for a long time and I got to imagine especially after the assassination these rivalries it would increase all the more would they not yeah and if there is one great story that dean Rusk with the sector state did not like that Slazenger called him brutalized in silence in meetings during the Kennedy administration implying that he wouldn't say anything that's a rough put it out there the only reason he was silent in meetings this lessons are within the facilities are respected leaker and we would talk about everything that he heard needing three wins Mr this is this is great fun Dr Chevy try I'd say it's good fun because you know the politics is just right for comedy it's it's when we take it too seriously like at times we're doing right now in this current environment then we deprive ourselves of of the little bit of humor in thank you Dr drive for presenting
The Vanishing Act
"My podcast. Last Friday about Billy falstaff who in nineteen eighty eighty two h eleven vanished in front of twenty. Two adult witnesses turned up fifteen hundred miles away wandering in the Shiloh. National Cemetery in Tennessee E and WHO. I finally tracked down as Drummer for the Union side. During the civil war was killed in the battle of Shiloh in eighteen sixty two. I've I been bombarded with two kinds of emails. Those who were skeptical of the story despite the facts I provided and emails wanting me to investigate a vanishing gene based on personal knowledge will there was one email that caught my attention. It came from the daughter of Karl Hayes Democratic senator from Arizona Zona. It's important to note the senator as passed away at age. Ninety two and nineteen seventy and that in one thousand nine hundred forty. Two is only child. Patricia Hayes was was born and is now seventy seven the absolutely unbelievable incident that she recounted occurred nineteen sixty one she when she was nineteen her father. There was a key figure though out of the picture and her promise not to mention any details of what she had witnessed anyone until fifty years years after his death. Some quick math assured me that indeed it had been fifty years sensors passing the incident though. Incredible in itself is almost overshadowed Out By the length of government dent President John F. Kennedy went through to cover it up. It was a Saturday morning. June nineteen sixty one and senator. Haitian Jason Walking up the steps for his office in the Capitol building because it was a Saturday who's bringing his nineteen year old daughter long and for the most part the steps and surrounding the area was deserted. Halfway up the steps Senator Hayes was approached by a man asking for a handout pattni email so the stranger was ten or twelve feet away hey and two steps below. She said she remembers her father producing a ten dollar bill. Now remember this is nineteen sixty one and the homeless were far less prolific prolific and numbers. Anyway she said the man took two steps up was on the same level as she and her father but still about ten feet away when he stepped forward closing the distance in reached out to take the ten dollar bill he vanished pass says her father was frantic quickly looked around including up in the sky then took her by the hand and together they ran. The remainder of the steps hustled through security and locked the door. Once they were in his office for Father Older explained that he was afraid of laser activity. Remember this was also the Cold War and she was driven to their home by security officer. Pat explained in her initial shaw. Email that although she was really spooked by the event on the Capitol steps. It didn't hit home until her father came home that evening and swore her and her mother her to never speak of the event she ended that first. Email asking me if I would be interested in creating a podcast around the event might response was was a resounding yes but only if there was more than just the event that I needed proof of the abandoned facts invalidated the proof. Her response was that she could provide advance places determined that the banishing did not result from a laser but it would be up to me to validate those events and places probably through the freedom. Him of Information Act okay. I'm game her. Next response. Came in a letter it was short. Lock up the S. T. R. C.. And get back to me with what you found. I've mentioned previous podcasts. That I get some of my research facts for why a that would be freedom of Information Act and they usually. I was fishing for for specific reference. But in this case I requested information on the S. T. R. C.. Forty one days later received a two page response as usual much of the contest was redacted or blacked out in this case. I could tell that names had been blocked out but remained was that S. T. R. C.. Stood for Space Time Research Center. The center's location was blacked out but the date of its defunding enclosure was nineteen ninety ready to research on space and time was enforced by the president. Though I know it was Kennedy by the date has name was redacted in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight. The funding he'd set up ran out and was reappropriated by Congress at the request of the ad see now the Atomic Energy Commission which has been around since nineteen forty six. It was president. Truman that put the commission in private hands rather within keep US operations regulated by the government some earlier research on another story revealed the ADC had ties to area. Fifty one. But that's the side from the documents of the I. A. Showed Space Time Research Center was under the umbrella of the T. S. slash. Sei c-i-s a top secret label. That was as need to know as it gets from all this I knew for sure that the S. T. R. C. Did exist and that it conducted research into space and time and that it was all top secret but it lost his funding and was closed down in nineteen ninety two. What I wanted to know was what the S. T. R. C.? Discovered if anything from the research so I asked promised I sent the result of my findings through the freedom of information at indeed showed the. Start was a real place. I asked Patricia Hayes and a letter for the next x bit of information that would lead me to the conclusion reached by the SDR see. Here's the kicker I never heard back from Patricia Hayes. And here's the strange inge part. I found after a little research there was no. US Senator Carl Hayes a Democrat from Arizona. Therefore no Patricia Hayes the email wherever she was she used got no response and when I called the number that showed up when we talked by phone it had been disconnected. But someone out there wanting to research the S. T. R. C.. When I mailed the freedom of Information Act with specific reference to the SDR are seat? I did get a response. So was a story. She told me about the man vanishing fabricated like her identity and simply a ruse to gap to inquire into the existence of the TRC. I I don't know this story left me with more questions to be sure than

"You know that they've made the case and that maybe they should have thought about that before the brought it over while Democrats work to persuade Republican colleagues to vote with them I've been reaching out to my Republican colleagues to see if they have questions want to discuss issues and so far I have not made any progress Senate Democrats say they want to hear real counter arguments from the president's defense team up next door here to here finger pointing at the house and how they conducted investigation what I want here is their facts and circumstances to disprove what we've heard so far and tomorrow's session begins at ten AM and then we'll run for several hours the president's legal team will likely use Saturday Monday and Tuesday for their opening arguments and they to get twenty four hours reporting in Washington I'm Corey love are now back to you and so we'll talk about that tonight needless to say by virtue of the fact that we have heard the same thing over and over and over again there are other reasons why we have our guest on this evening St Peters joins us he is retired major from the airforce and a congressional candidate as well he was running for the house representative battles fourth congressional district in there a June night Republican primary we're gonna be talking a bit about the impeachment situation to be sure and also about why there are war veterans in the public office so again I'm not sure that that we have heard anything that that the necessarily of promotes saying anything that we haven't said for the past several nights in a row so what will still be perceived as the the the topic allows us to do so and also take a look at the issue of veterans running for public office I happen to be veteran about run for public office certainly but nonetheless I think the topic is it is an important one St Peters thank you for joining us tonight yeah my pleasure and thank you for your service Sir I thank you thank you very much and I'd like was right back if that you first of all you're running for the the house in the Virginia the fourth congressional district I've I've not of that conversant with the the districts in the Nevada but the bulk of the bar and Dick Clark County that is to say right around Las Vegas is this one of those districts where the port the congressional district in the fourth congressional district that it is the top third of the Las Vegas valley includes north Las Vegas north west Las Vegas and that Jackie and the rural areas and almost to Carson city on the west and six and a half county in total very good so it's one of the the bigger districts like I said Las Vegas Nevada like a number of western states was largely a a city state if you will but to the population around the Las Vegas similar to Phoenix Arizona Salt Lake City a Utah and so on so I've got a better a better grip I guess all this particular district it is said that the metro Las Vegas but to the rural areas I guess of of the van are pretty Republican metro Las Vegas varies I guess so but I I know the sort of difficult you're quite competitive in much of that region what can you tell us about the fourth district what port district is split block into conception they it was born out of the twenty ten census Democrat held the first two years of twenty twelve to fourteen a Republican one in twenty fourteen held it locked into a Democrat and then that Democrats stepped out in the Democrats who want to first time step back in and they are the Republican who want to be the first time that a rematch in the Democrats okay you know why that was we can we can argue but the reality the numbers show us that it's he plus great though there are more Democrats but the non partisan vote when we run the numbers number get away the non partisan vote will decide this election if if everybody shows up so he has turned out up I know that that there's been a trend away from both veterans in but in public office and part of that of course is simply a reflection of the fact that if you go back say to to World War two a virtually every adult male was a veteran and to a certain extent the lack of better words in public office is a reflection of the fact we have had the major wars is very to time it's also to a certain extent a reflection of the fact that we into the draft as well but but I note that in the Senate the last time I looked I think that there was something like the thirteen percent of the Senate it was the veterans at one point I figured recent memory was about double that the house in nineteen seventy seven that eighty percent of the the house members were veterans that number the last time I checked was nineteen percent for the presidency of course you can go back did say just to to World War two and the president's Truman Eisenhower Kennedy Johnson Nixon Ford Carter Reagan and H. W. bush were all veterans since that time with the presidencies of Bill Clinton of George W. bush rock Obama and Donald Trump of those four presidencies the only military services the Air National Guard service of of president George W. bush not to to me that but it's simply a note the fact that increasingly decisions of this country that often especially at the federal level often affect the security of the country and people in uniform are increasingly being made by people who have ever spent one second in uniform that bothers me as well as well it should as well as your I mean I I get done nineteen twenty years in the airforce they deployed to the Middle East four times I brown start of Afghanistan you know if you if you gonna send the sons and daughters of America overseas to to fight wars that we should or shouldn't be and you know that's another debatable topic you should have you should have a really close grip grasp on on that decision and and what it really means you know when I was in Afghanistan you're carrying carrying very body capital no flag draped caskets across the tarmac to repatriate are our troops I in that manner back the United state that as a significant our responsibility and our daughter to have it unfortunately but you know having that experience no I have I have a really tight grasp on on what it means and and and making those decisions I think the leaders of our country can have that I'm not sure exactly the percentage of Americans currently who are military veterans I know certainly that the the greatest generation is dying rapidly if you look at at World War two for example except for those who may have lied about their age to get an early assuming that you were seventeen in nineteen forty five that means that the youngest World War two veterans were born in nineteen twenty eight so that means that the youngest the babies of the World War two generation were born this year they will be ninety two years of age and therefore they are a disappearing alike wise that you go to it's a career of veterans for example and you it you the look of the year the youngest of the Korean War veterans and that takes you down to I guess is roughly like let's see here born in nineteen fifty three so the forty have had to would be well doing the math quickly in my head for the seventh in their eighties open up that will do the do the matter but but even the youngest Vietnam veterans were born to back in the a time that they or their their sixties right now the the the the bottom line is for our major wars we are talking about veterans were getting extremely old obviously still have better served in the Gulf wars we have better served in Afghanistan Panama symbols such conflicts none the less as a percentage of the population it's it's dropping at at this has bothered me a great deal over the years that we increase we do we do respect our veterans I have seen and been a part of of for example people in in airports who stood up in a group of of of the military walking through the airport and I've applauded but but increasingly we treat them I think as beloved mercenaries we are so glad that they are willing to put their **** on the line for us it's not a shared thing and I think that's that's bad for the country yeah I agree with Ben a young pad to the point of the number of veteran serving in in Congress that unity and strength and I went in the military in nineteen ninety two the end strength year over year was was on a decline every year it was a it was you know a matter of dropping in strength and doing doing more missions and more activities with with your personnel so you know I at at this time we're at now I don't know that the end strength numbers now I've been out for a little bit but we are smaller all the mighty force and you know that played into the the number of people who are serving so yeah it's it's a it's a dangerous thing that we have when we don't have people leaving the country in a look in the Senate and house that they don't have a lot of experience and and know what to do with the power that now I I have with the data on occasion certainly voted for non veterans and greets me because the I have no other choice and I would say that I would vote for a veteran over non better in every instance however it is a strong tie breaker for me I did that man for those who haven't kept track of this the youngest World War two veterans are ninety two this year the youngest Korean War veterans kids are eighty four this year the youngest Vietnam veterans are seventy four years so you know again we're just talking about a serious the difference in in terms of of the time that so involved you're gonna come back and take some calls for our guests he is major Stampeders retired from the Air Force he's running for Congress from Nevada in the Republican primary and that will be talking about the impeachment as well as the need for more people who serve their country to to serve again in a different capacity will be.

with the skeptics always trying to put the property but he's actually saying the same words that Moses said he will say Moses says he will not and there's no grass growing here Mark Twain right selling his book no grass goes if everybody goes on and on that the land is a scorching desert Moses said what he said the same thing he's saying the same words as Moses he actually it's his first book that actually make some famous people filling biblical prophecy and not only that George but when he gets to the final point of his mission in the last days in Jerusalem at the end of the program is laughable day and night he is walking the streets of Jerusalem and on that day is the Sabbath so there's an appointed word from ages past where the Jewish people are opening up their schools world and they were chanting what is appointed for that day and and the the word they're chanting of what was appointed for the day it's the prophecy from Moses saying this stranger shall come into the land for marked lanes walking the streets of Jerusalem they are chanting it it's a property he will tell you they don't know he's doing he's on understanding you broke but it's all converging on the same day and when he goes in he goes home and and he writes this book to the world bears witness as Moses says of the land and then right after that everything starts these mystical things actually start appearing in the land signs of what is going to happen there okay we want them to go through him but it's late several mystery top of that same year and then after that the Jewish people begin to start coming back to the land now now for two thousand years they've been trying to still praying the prayer that says lord hear our prayer on and it be merciful to us and we still so he won't there be merciful restored the lack well mark Twain's real name was in March when of course it was Samuel Clemens you will is Hebrew it means the lord has heard and Clemens. then means as and has been a merciful now tell me about the significance of the fact that it was Mark Twain. he is a you know it the the the stranger has to be somebody who a man of words because he's going to bear witness this isn't he was a man of words Amanda words that he's going to write it down so it's actually it's going to spread across the entire world is going to bear witness of these can actually say you know that your most essential speak about the personal life the only and literally you don't want to end by saying there's a curse on this one it's going to be his first book his first major book it's gonna make him famous. all over America and all over the world and he's going to be a witness as it's written and Mark Twain any of it Mary he's he's actually when Israel later on is going to come into the world and man is the one who's going to recognize it in Israel president Truman Truman says that what the reason why he recognized that he was struggling but any small word in his in the oval office and the word was a quote from Mark Twain Mark Twain actually was part Israel it's the second door when in walked okay now we can either get you twenty this touch a little bit of them if you don't want to hear we count fifty years it's to believe the fiftieth year so it is a P. seven takes it to a particular here and impose anything happens I'll be willing to restoration of the land a restoration people property well it takes it in the year nineteen seventy nineteen seventeen and now we've got a whole lot of brown's probing for this mysteries gonna even include all World War is going to be for billing this mystery you got you got the Ottoman Empire that old school that that will occupy the land in their most women they don't want the Jewish people have a last time and then you got the British Empire this odd that that as a revival actually is called reading about biblical prophecy we each get thrown in on the opposite side of the war and the answer the year of jubilee approaches ninety seventeen autumn an empire starts to crumble the lead the jubilee says the occupier has the legal at such complex and the British Empire start entering the land under Allenby and I just as the year is approaching you've got a a government in and out of the British Empire that doesn't want the Jewish people to go back and all and as the years about the com they crumble the government crumbles and raised up god raises up to people who are raising a Bible with David Lloyd George prime minister and author bow for the but that will be foreign minister they issued the Balfour declaration first time in two thousand years that any power is saying the land of Israel is to be going back to his their people actually says the lead. shall return to the people that they used to it in that year in that same year Allenby liberated Jerusalem and they say this is going to be for the Jewish will now all this have to happen for end time prophecy to come about but there is a there's a number George in the Bible in in the book of Daniel which is the number that is says when this number yeah I've basically appears the occupier of the land has to leave at the occupation over with this number whatever Saddam the number is thirteen thirty five it's in Daniel look at that all of a sudden this number thirty thirty five starts appearing in the land of Israel and throughout the Middle East it's sort of hearing on coins from the number of the end of the occupation well why because it so happens that on the Muslim calendar it was the year thirteen thirty five which brings up the number of Daniel that says it's time to get out and it all converges on that year nineteen seventeen which is the year of jubilee well come together and that's the year that the Ottoman Empire police the land and for the first time it is given or promise to the Jewish people and actually would be here that happens on the exact date of that thirteen thirty five year but everything converges for that the prophecy can be fulfilled talks thirty one years after nineteen seventeen to get you Israel as a state okay well that well first of all the bridge the British turned against giving it to the Jewish people all you know here's an interest in it because this is even the rise of America is part this mystery because what happens is do you have an Ottoman Empire they are basically going against the prophecies what happens they crumble we place for the British Empire which is for the prophecies and they're raised up to the peak of the power but in between the two words the British Empire turns against the properties and they start actually thinking Jewish ships carrying refugees from **** Europe and so what happens right after that the British Empire crumbled to nothing and so god raises up another power and that power is the United States of America one. she's now blessing Israel so this works together to you yeah I'd like this this period of time and in that period of time you know that the prophecy Georgia in in Jeremiah says I will raise up the fissures and they'll fish for them if they come back to which people come back to us then then the hunters will come up with a hot well officials with the sinuses a return then the hunters coming Hitler calms the **** called and they're driving the Jewish people and but just before it happened you got this refuge that there so that's why it took that yet or are these things happen until you get to that the second World War but now this is going to take it to the door and and I think about this is you know another we know this but the the the visionary of Israel is a guy named Theodore Herzl yeah and I had a vision and he and he said we got to have this and I don't know that that he before he died in a secret and before that he revealed that he when he was a kid he had a dream a dream he took the soul the messiah the messiah said this boy this child is going to prepare the way for my coming now Jesus said I'm not coming again until the Jewish people come back to the land of Israel so it's gonna happen and so on but the man who was responsible actually at the dream of them aside. now he now hurts all right down a prophecy and he says because he he he starts sign is about movie of the Congress they think they have a they got a flag of Israel others Israel putting a flag have an anthem no but they but he writes a property says today or now I founded the Jewish state now everyone laughed at me today but he does the whole world will know it in fifty years now fifty years of the jubilee so this is now another cycle of June the twenty right he wrote he wrote it in eighteen ninety seven fast forward counter the fiftieth year takes you to nineteen forty seven the year that Israel is bolted into existence and the whole world knows it and when I looked I looked deeper and I saw the resolution that borders on to the world and is a date on it is September third nineteen forty seven well I look back. see on September third so what happened exactly fifty years to the day amazing stocks that were leading up to end times prophecy here so that was the second door that we're now approaching the third door to door tell us about that yeah yeah now there there is a prophecy in Georgia I used to be an atheist. yes and so what got me is if I start opening up for reading about into property I could not argue with it everything about you are you an atheist before it in a gnostic he went straight to being an atheist. I believe yes and then when I got hit by a train that's how to help you to that does that would do it yes now there's a property that they wanted to properties of Israel coming back is a it's a it's a book of Amos and it says in that day I will not that I will raise up the fall into having a goal of developing a reserved Israel gonna and the excel plant them in the land of the repair of the nation as an agent on okay on the day that Israel was was declared an Asian you refer to it in nineteen forty eight may fourteenth they declare it and then Israel comes into existence not midnight that's may fifteenth now that was a Sabbath that means there's an appointed word waiting you know for ages waiting to be read appointed for that day okay what was the word it's being chanted all over the world the word was the prophecy from Amos god saying in that day I will raise up isreal I will rebuild them I will plant them in the land as they are being raised up it's being chapters all over the world through these appointed were interesting tank processing out now there's something else.

"president truman" Discussed on KCRW
"Looking at the road to low Holly Lalo southbound five just north of Osborne. We have a swerve alert there in Orange County floating around the number one lane. So watch out westbound ten overland two car crash in the number four lane. Another one on the westbound tenant Bundy, two vehicle crash. On the right shoulder is pretty thick outside. We'll keep you posted Holly Adams. Thank you four thirty five. It's KCRW from NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. And I'm Mary Louise Kelley a week from tonight. President Trump is supposed to deliver a state of the union address to congress and the nation now whether he will or not, Nope. In question. The White House is moving ahead with plans, but no word yet on whether house speaker Nancy Pelosi will give him the permission he needs. She had suggested last week that Trump postpone his speech until after the shutdown ins, or maybe just deliver a written version and skip the speech part well uncertainty over the mechanics of the sheer speech has given us reason to reconsider the century old tradition of the state of the union. Joining me now is NPR's Ron Elving. Ron. Hey, Mary, Louise. So these century old tradition. I just called it. And I did not know until quite recently that the president is not actually required to show up on Capitol Hill and. Deliver a big old state of the union speech. When did that actually begin Woodrow Wilson was really reviving the idea of reporting in person to congress in nineteen thirteen when he gave his first report, but it was originated actually, George Washington in seventeen ninety four the capitol building as we know it was ever built Wilson was a college professor at he loved the idea of lecturing congress and laying out his agenda and plenty of other presidents have loved that idea to they started putting them on the radio in the twenty s and on television in nineteen forty seven. Awaits the arrival of president Truman to deliver. His message on the state of the union, and since then presidents have pretty much wanted to have that opportunity to reach the big national audience, you mentioned television, which is a reminder, I guess of the optics of this that if it were to go ahead Nancy Pelosi would of course, be sitting there right behind the president. And it's also a reminder, this is her chamber. She gets to decide who addresses it and actually Nancy Pelosi introduced George W Bush back in two thousand seven after the Democrats had taken control of the house of representatives. At that time, I have the high privilege and the distinct honor to you the president of the United States in general, the congress has shown its respect for the president of the United States. You're describing some of the traditions behind all this. What about just the message? How powerful a platform is this for the president to these speeches tend to resonate. They do an historic moments such as. DR announcing the four freedoms that we would fight for if we were to be pulled into World War Two. Founded on all central. LBJ declaring unconditional war on poverty and this administration to day here. And now declares unconditional war on poverty in America. George W Bush in two thousand three set the stage.

LBJ declaring unconditional war on poverty and this administration to day here. And now declares unconditional war on poverty in America. George W Bush in two thousand three set the stage for the invasion of Iraq. That was coming in March with a series of accusations about Iraq, seeking weapons of mass destruction. The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently saw significant quantities of uranium from Africa. That of course was later repudiated. As an accusation against Iraq Barrack, Obama in two thousand fourteen following a government shutdown. The previous fall took that opportunity to chastise the members of congress who had pressed for that shutdown when our differences shut down government or threaten the full, faith and credit of the United States. Then we are not doing right by the American people a moment of precedents, perhaps for the former president, you know, one of the things that strikes me about the state of the union is what a security nightmare. It is all of those people in one chamber so much of that they always leave one member of the cabinet undisclosed location, but that combined with the shutdown is this an opportunity to shake it up. How the speech unfolds every year many would like. It to be such a moment this has perhaps outlived its usefulness. We're not used to seeing the president. It does give a certain advantage, of course, to the incumbent president and the opposition parties never terribly happy about that. Giving him an entire hour to present his case on any number of controversial subjects and certainly we would anticipate that would be the case again this year NPR's, Ron Elving. He is senior editor and correspondent on the Washington desk. Thank you, Ron. Thank you Mary. Louise, it's early days still, but the democratic field of twenty twenty presidential candidates is growing the latest throw in her hat, California. Senator comma, Harris Harris has branded herself APR aggressive, but she also carries political baggage that opponents may use to question her progressive credentials controversial decision. She made as a prosecutor and attorney general of California Chris catalog. Oh is reporter for politico. He's been following Harris's career for years. Welcome to the program. Thank you so much. So you were based in Sacramento during the years when she was a federal prosecutor. Right based on what you saw at the time. How was her tenure characterized as an attorney general people often criticized Kamla Harris for being overly cautious basically for siding with law enforcement too often. And I think some of those cases where that came up where some statewide ballot initiatives where she did not take a position on one in particular that would have reduced some felonies to misdemeanors now when you look at a potential candidate. I'll say like a Joe Biden people are already talking about his role in the mid nineties in terms of the crime Bill, right and its connection to mass incarceration. Is there anything like that for Kamala Harris kind of come back as a criticism? So even though comma Harris has long been personally opposed to the death penalty. She made a avow when she ran statewide in California that she would uphold the law of the land. And there was a famous case in Orange County where the the issue of the death penalty came before her office in her office actually took the side of the state and argued. That the that the death penalty should stand and her critics now point to that and say that was an opportunity for her to really take a stand and say, you know, this should not be the law of the land in California. And that's not something that she did. We saw just as recently as the last presidential election issues of criminal Justice coming to the forefront in the democratic primary. Can you talk about how different the politics are now for this next crop of candidates, including chimeras? Sure. Yeah. We were just starting to hear a lot of those sort of voices creeping up within the Democratic Party at the time in two thousand sixteen. Now, I think people have really come to digest the new environment that we're in with really the black lives matter movement, really taking hold across the country. And I think you've seen prosecutors across the country come out and really take much stronger. What some folks would call activists positions folks in Kamala Harris's camp who have come up a couple maybe a generation or two before them really were a lot more in line with this sort of standard law and order prosecutor. Sort of defended the law of the land, even though she did take some other approaches in her career. So what does that mean looking forward to twenty twenty? How do you think she tries to reframe this resume? She's really going to position herself as a progressive prosecutor, a public interest attorney as she calls, it someone who worked on behalf of the people she had clients so to speak who were sexually assaulted young women and girls, and she was in the courtroom trying to seek Justice for them. That is something that she's going to point out. And I think a lot of environmental laws related to California where she was taking on the big polluters. So I think she has to really own this profile as a prosecutor and talk about the ways in which she did things differently. What are you gonna be looking for in the coming weeks? I think the question she has a speech in Oakland on Sunday, which is supposed to really Mark the start of her campaign. And I think that speech is gonna take place only a few blocks from where she worked for you. Years at the Alameda County courthouse, and so there's a lot of symbolic value to the location, and I think this part of a record or something she's going to have to explain to people, and she's gonna lead with this idea that she was not only a prosecutor, but a progressive prosecutor Chris catalog, oh is a reporter for politico. Thank you for speaking with us. Thank you so much. The deal to bring Amazon to queens announced in November sparked howls of protests around the city, even has the mayor and governor took vows for making it happen. Two months later the criticism has yet to die down. And now the company is promoting the deal with its first full-fledged public relations blitz with me to review have the company is rolling. It out is WNYC's Jim O'Grady, Jim. Hey, jamie. So Jim describe the public persuasion campaign that Amazon has launched how big is it and who is it targeting? Okay. To begin with full page ads in the daily news and the New York Post these ads are open letters that begin. Dear New York, and they argue that the corporate campus Amazon plans to build in Long Island city will bring benefits like growing the queen's economy offering job and career opportunities to local residents that kind of thing and for local flavor the ads have a photo of the Queensboro bridge, which links Manhattan to Long Island city. Right. That is right. Amazon's pure arm is reaching far beyond Long Island city right now, it's blanketing all of queens from Jackson heights to the rockaways with these oversized mailers reminding residents at the company is supposed to bring twenty five thousand jobs over ten years to New York City and thousands of indirect jobs in construction and retail in all kinds of other services. The Mailer is also encouraged people to call their elected officials and tell them quote support the Amazon project right because many of them have come out against the deal. Yeah. And some of these mailers single out New York state Senator Michael generis by name and call on residents to put pressure on him to be more welcoming of Amazon genius district includes Long Island city, and he's actively working to derail what he claims is a bad deal. The state and the city have offered Amazon up to three billion dollars in tax breaks and other kinds of subsidies as an enticement for them to build big in New York. Where the company probably wants and needs to be anyway, proponents of the deal would argue back. They say, yeah, they're subsidies. But those subsidies from the city, for example, would be available to any company moving to Long Island city and Amazon would be paying taxes and creating new job. So they say it'll be worth it. What does Senator Jim Norris say about being called out in these mailers I called him? And he said, this it tells you all you need to know about this deal and Amazon that they are now spending money to try and convince the public that they're entitled to the public's money. How much money is Amazon spending. All right. This is a public outreach campaign. So you'd think they'd be willing to share some of those details I asked how many mailers how much did they cost who's getting them? What else are you planning to do? But all a company spokesperson would say was quote, not weighing in on the specifics. Okay. Okay. If Amazon is essentially asking people in queens to do a little lobbying for them doesn't that mean that it's not quite a done deal. Deal. That's exactly what Senator Jaguars says this is such a great deal. They would need to engage in a campaign. If there was a done deal, they would need to engage in a campaign. So it's not a done deal. Jenar says the deal can't be finalized without a vote from the state agency. Call the public authorities control board, and if an effort is made to move forward on any part of the project from land use to economic development money without that vote. He says we will see you in court. All right. What else is Amazon doing their staffing up? They've hired a big PR firm S K D Knickerbocker, which has a lot of government contacts. Yeah. And the government agencies managing the deal the city economic Development Corporation, Empire State development. They're hiring people to basically promote the deal. A government spokesperson told me they'll be talking up Amazon's promises for things like a new six hundred seats school for Long Island city and a project that we connect to state parks along the East River talking up those things to community boards civic groups, the queen's bridge houses, a very large public housing development. Right nearby. Right. So for example, a resident at a recent meeting of the oldest story a neighborhood association asked to city official what if Amazon doesn't come through on these promises. Do they still get all the subsidies? Here was the answer from city development official Nate bliss. Poverty.

"Right. So. He wasn't exactly involved in drafting and inserting the language itself. But it's about as close as you can get right. He wanted them to the language that included a do you think he consciously did that that is really the key question? And I don't I don't know the answer that I can say that Bobby certainly was a person who believed in process and believed in having a dialogue within government to have it function the best way that it can. So when he reformed the national Security Council and enhanced its he believed that national Security Council which had been neglected by president Truman should actually operate as the preeminent national security body of the US government would happen is you'd have a fulsome debate within the national Security Council right to arrive at the best policies. And I think he probably believed that was what had happened in true in the Truman administration development of this policy that he was bringing forward a policy that had been reviewed and studied and hammered out. I want to get to the impact that this executive order hat, and you've got some really eyebrow. Ray? Using stuff in the book about you know, just what this meant for people who were gay, and we're working in the government you quote from a security agent at the State Department. Peter Zauq who boasted of being the quote hatchet, man, and disparaged hearings and due process for government employees who are accused as a waste of time. He would say the son of a bitches queer and out he goes. And then he later expressed some regret about the number of his targets who killed themselves sometimes within minutes after leaving his office. Mrs again, quoting from this guy soak one guy, he barely left my office..
