Political rhetoric has become increasingly divisive in the 21st century, but many of the themes and rhetorical strategies we see today have deep roots in American history. In this episode, Ben and Bruce Carlson (My History Can Beat Up Your Politics) discuss the impact that technology, society and other factors have had on Presidential rhetoric from the 1932 contest between Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt to the election of 2020. A lot has changed since the Great Depression, but the similarities between then and now might surprise you. Bruce Carlson is the host of My History Can Beat Up Your Politics.

Among the topics covered in this conversation: - The early intellectual development of Michael Harrington and his interest in bohemianism - Harrington's anti-communism, his belief in a popular front sans Stalinists, and his relationship to New Left in the 60s - Harrington's "left wing of the possible" strategy and the Democratic Party - The influence of theorist Max Schachtman on Harrington's thinking; Harrington's concept of "Democratic Marxism" - Liberalism, Capitalism, Michael Harrington, and the reformist vs. revolutionary divide - Michael Harrington, the DSA, and the Israel/Palestine conflict - Michael Harrington, the Vietnam War, and imperialism - Harrington's value beyond the criticisms Greene has of him - Harrington's The Other America, FDR the New Deal coalition, and LBJ's Great Society - Harrington's debates with or critiques of right-wing figures like William F.

Gen. George Marshall and Henry Stimpson Built America's WW2 War Machine and Created the Postwar Global Order

Five years after World War II ended, Winston Churchill said he was still amazed that the United States, which before WWII had a tiny military and was fully committed to isolationism, “were able not only to build up the armies and air force units, but also to find the leaders and vast staffs capable of handling enormous masses and of moving them faster and farther than masses have ever been moved in war before.” He was speaking in general about the United States, but much of the credit arguably was with Chief of Staff Gen. George Marshall and Secretary of War Henry Stimpson.From 1940 until the end of the war, Marshall and Stimson headed the army machine that ground down the Axis. Theirs was one of the most consequential collaborations of the twentieth century. According to Dwight Eisenhower, the two possessed more greatness than any other men he had ever met.The general and the secretary traveled very different paths to power. Educated at Yale, where he was Skull and Bones, and at Harvard Law, Henry Stimson joined the Wall Street law firm of Elihu Root, future secretary of war and state himself, and married the descendant of a Founding Father. He went on to serve as secretary of war under Taft, governor-general of the Philippines, and secretary of state under Hoover. An internationalist Republican with a track record, Stimson ticked the boxes for FDR, who was in the middle of a reelection campaign at the time. Thirteen years younger, George Marshall graduated in the middle of his class from the Virginia Military Institute (not West Point), then began the standard, and very slow, climb up the army ranks. During World War I he performed brilliant staff work for General Pershing. After a string of postings, Marshall ended up in Washington in the 1930s and impressed FDR with his honesty, securing his appointment as chief of staff.Today's guest is Edward Aldrich, author of The Partnership: George Marshall, Henry Stimson, and the Extraordinary Collaboration that Won World War II. Marshall and Stimson were two very different men who combined with a dazzling synergy to lead the American military effort in World War II, in roles that blended politics, diplomacy, and bureaucracy in addition to warfighting. They transformed an outdated, poorly equipped army into a modern fighting force of millions of men capable of fighting around the globe. They, and Marshall in particular, identified the soldiers, from Patton and Eisenhower to Bradley and McNair, best suited for high command. They helped develop worldwide strategy and logistics for battles like D-Day and the Bulge. They collaborated with Allies like Winston Churchill. They worked well with their cagey commander-in-chief. They planned for the postwar world. They made decisions, from the atomic bombs to the division of Europe, that would echo for decades.

Today's episode is brought to you by the Museum's Jenny Craig Institute for the Study of War and Democracy and The Media & Education Center.   We are going back to 2020, when Dr. Ed Lengel, then the Museum's Senior Director of Programs, hosted a webinar with President Harry Truman's grandson - Clifton Truman Daniel -  and Paul Sparrow, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum Director.   They presented Roosevelt's and Truman's roles in the Manhattan Project  and the dramatic race for atomic power.    The Manhattan Project's success would have been impossible without President Roosevelt's committed leadership, and President Truman's decision to employ the weapons.   This culminated in the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6th and 9th, 1945.    If you would like to view the original conversation, you can see it here: https://youtu.be/9f67sx2moBE

Today's show rundown: Joe Manchin really is a Democrat isn't he everyone. "The Inflation Reduction Act" has been approved by Manchin...wanna know why???? - well it seems that pipelines are not popular anywhere except West Virginia...but boom...pipeline from West Virginia to Virginia was approved and Manchin flips on Build Back Better "light". It is impossible to lower inflation by spending more money. There is a historical precedence for this set by FDR. In the 30's he raised taxes, and spent money - pushing us into The Depression. Lets go through the lies - Whatever a bill is called, it is the OPPOSITE of what it is called. So the Inflation Reduction Act isn't going to reduce anything. The Wharton School of Business says that this bill will have NO IMPACT on lowering inflation. 313 Billion is supposed to be collected on tax fraud with this new bill...so why now? They have to pass something to make you think they are worthy of electing them into office. 9 times out of 10 it is destructive, but they try to spin it like they are doing something. Biden says he will not raise taxes on ANYONE who makes less that 400K per year. But you know this isn't true. They always blame the rich, and go after the middle class. Manchin says the same thing with his pipeline bill, but if you read the bill, it shows that every single tax payer will have their taxes increased even at 10K. 1-2 percent increases on people making under 20 thousand dollars? https://bluntforcetruth.com/voicemail/ https://www.zona.com/. - Code BFT

Nate Schweber is an award-winning journalist whose work has been featured in the New York Times, ProPublica, Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown, and more. He's also the author of the new book “This America of Ours: Bernard and Avis DeVoto and the Forgotten Fight to Save the Wild,” which was published in early July 2022. If you're looking for an engaging and entertaining history book that highlights an often-overlooked era of conservation in the American West, then "This America of Ours" is your book– as you'll hear in this conversation, I thoroughly enjoyed it. - Nate is a native Montanan who grew up in Missoula and headed east to New York City as a young man to pursue a career in journalism. Despite building a successful life and career in the big city, Nate never lost his love for Montana– so he made an effort to pursue more stories linked to the people and landscapes of the American West. As he studied and explored the West with his journalist's eye, he discovered the writings of Bernard DeVoto and was quickly captivated. Fast forward to today, and he has written an amazing book about Bernard and his wife Avis, and how together they were one of the most important and effective forces for conservation in the early 20th century. - I knew I was going to enjoy "This America of Ours," but it surpassed all of my lofty expectations. While I had definitely heard of the DeVotos, I had no idea of their influence and fearlessness, especially as they faced off against powerful forces that were attempting to sell off vast tracts of our public lands. Nate and I dig into all aspects of the DeVotos' lives and historical importance, both individually and as a power couple. We talk about why Nate became so obsessed with the DeVotos, and how the DeVotos bridged the gap between Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt's conservation legacies and the modern-day environmental movement. We discuss the parallels between the public lands battles of today and those of the early 20th century, and how reading history helps us to better understand and process today's current events. Nate also offers up tons of excellent book recommendations, so be sure to check out the notes for a list of all the topics we discuss and links to everything. - A huge thanks to Nate for writing such an enlightening book and for taking the time to join me for a conversation.

Only days after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt tapped Chester W. Nimitz to assume command of the Pacific Fleet. Nimitz was not the most senior candidate available, and some, including his new boss, U.S. Navy Admiral Ernest J. King, considered him a desk admiral, more suited to running a bureaucracy than a theater of war. Yet FDR's selection proved nothing less than inspired. From the precarious early months of the war after December 7th 1941 to the surrender ceremony in Tokyo Bay nearly four years later, Nimitz transformed the devastated and dispirited Pacific fleet into the most powerful and commanding naval force in history.  From the start, the pressures on Nimitz were crushing. Facing demands from Washington to mount an early offensive, he had first to revive the depressed morale of the thousands of sailors, soldiers, and Marines who served under him. He had to corral independent-minded subordinates--including Admiral Bill Bull Halsey and General Holland Howlin' Mad Smith--and keep them focused on shared objectives. He had to maintain a sometimes-fraught relationship with his Army counterpart Douglas MacArthur, and cope with his superiors, including the formidably prickly King and the inscrutable FDR. He had to navigate the expectations of a nation impatient for revenge and eventual victory. And of course, he also confronted a formidable and implacable enemy in the Imperial Japanese Navy, which, until the Battle of Midway, had the run of the Pacific. Craig Symonds' Nimitz at War: Command Leadership from Pearl Harbor to Tokyo Bay (Oxford UP, 2022) reveals how the quiet man from the Hill Country of Texas eventually surmounted all of these challenges. Using Nimitz's headquarters--the eye of the hurricane--as his vantage point, Symonds covers all the major campaigns in the Pacific from Guadalcanal to Okinawa. He captures Nimitz's composure, discipline, homespun wisdom, and most of all his uncanny sense of when to assert authority and when to pull back. In retrospect it is difficult to imagine anyone else accomplishing what Nimitz did. As Symonds' absorbing, dynamic, and authoritative portrait reveals, it required qualities of leadership exhibited by few other commanders in history, qualities that are enduringly and even poignantly relevant to our own moment.

Only days after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt tapped Chester W. Nimitz to assume command of the Pacific Fleet. Nimitz was not the most senior candidate available, and some, including his new boss, U.S. Navy Admiral Ernest J. King, considered him a desk admiral, more suited to running a bureaucracy than a theater of war. Yet FDR's selection proved nothing less than inspired. From the precarious early months of the war after December 7th 1941 to the surrender ceremony in Tokyo Bay nearly four years later, Nimitz transformed the devastated and dispirited Pacific fleet into the most powerful and commanding naval force in history.  From the start, the pressures on Nimitz were crushing. Facing demands from Washington to mount an early offensive, he had first to revive the depressed morale of the thousands of sailors, soldiers, and Marines who served under him. He had to corral independent-minded subordinates--including Admiral Bill Bull Halsey and General Holland Howlin' Mad Smith--and keep them focused on shared objectives. He had to maintain a sometimes-fraught relationship with his Army counterpart Douglas MacArthur, and cope with his superiors, including the formidably prickly King and the inscrutable FDR. He had to navigate the expectations of a nation impatient for revenge and eventual victory.

In deze echt allerlaatste aflevering van het vierde seizoen praat Jaap Jansen met PG Kroeger over boeken waarvan PG de laatste tijd heeft genoten. Betrouwbare Bronnen neemt je mee naar het kleinsteedse Independence in Missouri en naar een schatrijke familie in Boston. Maar ook naar Singapore, Londen in oorlogstijd, Weimar en de sloppenwijken van Sint Petersburg.Ten eerste twee boeken over presidenten van Amerika, in vervolg op editie 281 met Pirmin Olde Weghuis.Het gloednieuwe The Trials of Harry S. Truman van Jeffrey Frank vertelt over de eenvoudige boerenzoon en winkelier die in april 1945 geheel onverwacht de iconische president FDR moest opvolgen. Truman werd nadien een van de belangrijkste en meest omstreden wereldleiders, zeker ook in eigen land. Zijn achtergrond leert ons veel over hem en zijn tijd in het begin van de Koude Oorlog. Daarmee is dit weer uiterst actueel in 2022!Ook nieuw is het monumentale JFK, Kennedy's jonge jaren van Fedrik Logevall. Ook dit is een boek over een president in de Koude Oorlog. De schrijver duikt in dit eerste deel van zijn biografie in de Werdegang van Kennedy en hoe hij zich allengs emancipeerde van zijn dominante, puissant rijke en reactionaire vader.Ten tweede drie boeken over Nederland in tijden van grote crisis en verandering. Die passen dan ook erg goed bij het afgelopen seizoen en vast ook bij het komende!Op zoek naar stabiliteit van Friso Wielenga analyseert 'de Balkenende-jaren' en daar is de tijd langzamerhand ook wel rijp voor. Dat doet Wielenga boeiend en evenwichtig. Het boek verrast en bevalt door de aandacht voor nuances. Maar PG noemt het ook 'onaf' vanwege een toch wat rommelige opzet.Frans Stoelinga promoveerde op leven en werk van Albert Winsemius. Zijn boek is zowel voor de historie van de wederopbouw en het Marshallplan in ons land én de opkomst van Singapore als powerhouse in de wereldeconomie een voltreffer. Hoe een Nederlandse topambtenaar in Azië een sleutelfiguur wordt en aan het polderen slaat is een fascinerend verhaal.Dat is dat over Adriaan Dijxhoorn niet minder. Tobias van Gent schreef een adembenemend boek over deze militair die als minister in 1940 het waagstuk van zijn leven deed en ons land als Europese democratie daarmee eigenlijk redde. Dat het koninklijk huis hem daarvoor met hoon, achterdocht en Berufsverbot achtervolgde maakt dit boek af en toe onthutsend. Zelfs eerherstel door de parlementaire enquêtecommissie mocht niet baten. De minister en de majesteit is geen boek voor Orangisten!Ten derde moeten we deze zomer natuurlijk de diepte in met boeken over Europa van vroeger en nu. En dus over Duitsland en Rusland van toen en nu.Die Schwester van Kerstin Decker brengt het lange en opmerkelijke leven van Elisabeth Förster, de zus van de filosoof Friedrich Nietzsche. En wát een leven. Van de zelfmoord van haar man - een fanatieke antisemiet - in Paraguay tot groot succes als 'media-ondernemer' en van kandidatuur voor de Nobelprijs tot bewondering door Mussolini en gezellige bezoekjes van de Führer. Het is een tijdsbeeld van de Europese cultuur en politiek tussen 1870 en 1940 dat zijn gelijke bijna niet kent.De Britse historicus Philip Short komt letterlijk dezer weken met een vuistdikke biografie van Vladimir Poetin. Het boek kan ons veel leren, zijn analyses en verhalen zijn indrukwekkend en ijzingwekkend tegelijk. Hoe hij een collega president het liefst 'aan zijn ballen zou ophangen' bijvoorbeeld. Putin, his Life and Times is kortom een boek dat je niet mag laten liggen - helaas.En tot slot een stukje Sjostakovitsj!***Deze aflevering is mede mogelijk gemaakt door donaties van luisteraars via Vriend van de Show.

Things do not look good for Joe Biden and the Democratic Party right now. Polls show that nearly 3/4 of Americans, including a staggering 94% of people under 30, do not want Biden to run for reelection. Biden's prospects look slightly better when people are asked if they prefer him or Donald Trump, and for Biden that's apparently enough. The New York Times says the president has a favorite aphorism: "Don't compare me to the Almighty, compare me to the alternative." (This is the worst aphorism ever.) "The alternative to us is Christian Fascism" might be a platform that allows some Democrats to squeak back into office. After all, the existing alternative is Christian Fascism. But what kind of agenda could actually produce lasting majorities and enthusiastic public support? What would a real alternative to the GOP, one that put forward a positive and transformative set of ideas, look like? To answer this question, we are today joined by Alan Minsky, Executive Director of Progressive Democrats of America (PDA), and Professor Harvey J. Kaye, author of The Fight for the Four Freedoms and Thomas Paine and the Promise of America. In a recent series of articles for Common Dreams, Kaye and Minsky have laid out the case for a 21st-century Economic Bill of Rights. They argue that if Democrats want to win, they should formally embrace the principles of the Economic Bill of Rights, which would make it clear to Americans exactly what people would be voting for when they are asked to vote. Kaye and Minsky's article series is here:A Call for All Progressive Candidates and Officeholders to Embrace a 21st Century Economic Bill of RightsWhy Should Progressives Embrace a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights? Because They Already Do (w/ Michael Brennan)The Time Has Come for Progressives to Rescue and Renew American DemocracyThe Economic Bill of Rights consists of the following: 1. The right to a useful job that pays a living wage, and to a voice in the workplace through a union and collective bargaining.2. The right to comprehensive quality health care.3. The right to a complete cost-free public education and access to broadband internet.4. The right to decent, safe, affordable housing.5. The right to a clean environment and a secure planet.6. The right to a meaningful endowment of resources at birth and a secure retirement.7. The right to sound banking and financial services.8. The right to recreation and participation in public life.For Kaye and Minsky, having a clear set of principles like this, and legislation ready to pass that will actually ensure the rights are granted, is a viable route to progressive electoral success that can deliver the kind of lasting political transformation last seen in the years of the New Deal. In this episode we talk about what the progressive left should borrow from FDR in order to stop the creeping advance of far-right theocracy in its tracks. A previous Current Affairs interview with Harvey Kaye specifically focusing on Thomas Paine and FDR can be heard here. More interviews with Kaye and Minsky about the Economic Bill of Rights can be found here.

If invaded by China, Taiwan must launch a retaliatory attack on China's mainland. Unlike the United States, Taiwan is preparing for China's attack. The Biden Administration is too focused on chasing Donald Trump, destroying fossil fuels, debating how open the border should be, and how to redefine a recession when they can't even define what a woman is.  America's founding was debated and adopted in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. What happened in America has never happened in the course of history and it likely won't ever happen again. America is the greatest human experiment in the history of mankind. A fantastic example built on the foundation of Athens, Rome, and the British Parliament. The Justice Department is criminally investigating former President Donald Trump. They moved from politicization to criminalization. What would Americans think if FDR used the IRS to attack political enemies or if JFK used the FBI to spy on Martin Luther King Jr.? What about LBJ using federal law enforcement to spy on the campaign headquarters of Barry Goldwater? These Democrats did that and much worse when they were in power. The country is now in a recession and stagflation is soon to follow. President Biden will blame big oil and big meat for shortages, not his business-stifling policies. While the White House will say that we're not in a recession, what we are in is defined as a recession by every other economist not working in the Administration.  Learn more about your ad choices.

The almost-completely forgotten Secretary of State for FDR and Truman, Edward R. Stettinius, Jr. did more than anyone to create the United Nations. He was derided in his time as an intellectual lightweight who lacked diplomatic experience. But he navigated a thicket of international disputes to maintain consensus between FDR, Churchill, Stalin and a litany of smaller nations to forge the final U.N. Charter. If not for an incredible series of events that thrusted Stettinius into the Secretary of State post, the United Nations may not exist today.

Synopsis In 1917, on the day the United States declared war in Germany, the American song-writer and former vaudeville showman George M. Cohan composed a song titled “Over There,” based on the first three notes of a military bugle-call. On today's date the following year, the great Italian tenor Enrico Caruso performed Cohan's song for an audience of 10,000 at an open-air concert in Ocean Grove, N.J. Musical America reported (quote): “It was a great opportunity for the rocking-chair brigade, which had never in its whole life witnessed such an outpouring of humans. And the automobiles! The Ocean Grove police department had BOTH its hands busy directing the traffic, extricating Fords from Rolls-Royces and preventing them from parking on the pathways.” Caruso's 1918 rendition of “Over There,” despite his heavily Italian-accented English, was the smash hit. “The audience got up on its 20,000 feet and yelled with delight,” reported Musical America, which also noted that Cohan had completed a brand new patriotic song addressed to the troops overseas, ending with the lines, “When you come back, and you will come back, There's a whole world waiting for you.” In 1936, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt presented Cohan with the Congressional Gold Medal for his contributions to World War I morale, in particular for his songs "You're a Grand Old Flag” and "Over There."
