On this day when the world says farewell to Queen Elizabeth 2nd, we thought we would pay tribute to her in a uniquely focused way. We will look back fondly on her relationship with the United States of America. Queen Elizabeth has been the one constant in an ever changing world. Through all of that change, and 14 American Presidents, Queen Elizabeth has reigned with desire to maintain a good relationship with the United States. In so doing, she became as beloved in America as she was in her own country and commonwealth.  , even though America is a country that 200 plus  years before had a revolution to get away from a Monarchy. The Founding Fathers would probably be shocked.  So today, as she is laid to rest, we honor her with a look back at how often she took the time to honor us in the United States, from visits, and meetings with our Presidents, to remembering our nation at its lowest moment, to even one of the funniest stories about the Queen and two hapless American tourists that will leave you laughing. God Save the Queen!! The Lowcountry Gullah PodcastTheculture, history and traditions podcast where Gullah Geechee culture lives!Listen on: Apple Podcasts Spotify

In this episode, I have an excellent conversation with Jenna Carlton about the Millenial Veterans and the challenges they face in the transition from military service to civilian life.  Jenna joined the Navy in 2013 and began training as an Aerographer's Mate studying meteorology and oceanography. During her four years, she went underway on several ships and completed a deployment on CVN 75, Harry S. Truman, in efforts of Operation Inherent Resolve.In 2017, Jenna was honorably discharged and used her GI Bill to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Public Policy at St. Mary's College of Maryland. She did a summer internship at the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs where she discovered her passion for helping veterans but was discouraged by the bureaucracy of Congress.In 2020, while job searching, Navy Veteran Jenna became active in the online veteran community and started a support group for younger veterans and transitioning service members called The Millennial Veterans. The group offers resources, shared experiences, and a lot of laughs through online interactions making veterans feel less isolated and normalizing the hardships of becoming a civilian again. The Millennial Veterans share amazing stories of our veterans and keep positive conversations flowing through weekly interviews on IG Live called Vet Chats.If you enjoy the podcast, would you please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?

Classical Christian educators aren't just interested in the old stuff for nostalgia sake or to hide from the crazy modern world (although it may be tempting at times), we hold on the great writers and thinkers going all the way back to the greeks and romans because generations because they have stood the test of time as they point to what is true, lasting, permanent. Not to mention great thinkers like Plutarch back in the first century wrote biographies retelling the great stories of Roman and Greece that became deeply embedded in the minds of so many great leaders from Beethoven to Harry Truman. We live in a world of the temporary, the disposable and the flippant and so many are desperate for depth. Join us for this episode where we are reminded again of why we believe the ancients have so much to offer to us frazzled moderns.

There was absolutely no one else on Earth with the stature, respect, influence, and as beloved as Queen Elizabeth 2nd.  She was the last major figure left who had served in some capacity during World War 2. She had been on the thrown of Great Britain for  70 years. To put that into some perspective when she became the Monarch of England and the Commonwealth of nations, Harry Truman was President of the United States, Winston Churchill was residing at 10 Downing Street, and Joseph Stalin was the leader of the Soviet Union. In most of the World, only one in ten women worked outside the home, America had 48 States, Cary Grant was one of Hollywood's biggest stars,   Richard Nixon was not yet Vice President, and Strom Thurmond had not yet been elected to the United States Senate. Through all the years, all the advances in technology, all the changes on the political map around the world,  an almost entirely different world had emerged, but  she had never gone away.  Queen Elizabeth 2nd  was the one constant through it all. The very foundation of her nation and the steadfast symbol of stability in an ever changing World. She was to so many of us what appeared to be the last adult on the world stage. In this special episode, we look back over the life of the only Monarch of Great Britain 80% of her  countrymen  has ever known. 14 United States Presidents,  15 British Prime Ministers, the age of radio, television, the internet, and social media have all come, and in some cases gone, under her reign. She has somehow  figured out a way to steer her nation and commonwealth of nations through all of that dynamic, cultural, and ethnic change, and she has done it all while becoming the World's most beloved public figure. No easy feet for any one, in any office, to have achieved.Here you will hear her speech as a 14 year old child, requested by Winston Churchill, with the hope of swaying public sentiment in the United States during the early days of World War 2, her speech at age 21 pledging to serve her country with dedication and loyalty for the rest of her life, her Speech after the horrific death of Princess Diana, her inspirational  Christmas messages in 2016 and 2021, and, finally, her message of instruction to Parliament on its opening day of 2021. We will also hear the first words from King Charles 3rd as he becomes the new Monarch of the nation of Great Britain. It is a thank you to  a Queen who gave all for 70 years, as the great children's character Paddington said,  "thank you for everything" God Save the King!! The Lowcountry Gullah PodcastTheculture, history and traditions podcast where Gullah Geechee culture lives!Listen on: Apple Podcasts Spotify

Debido a la gran complejidad y riesgo que entrañaba dicho ataque, los mismos oficiales que lo planearon, lo denominaron, "Operación Impensable". Esta ofensiva que sería efectuada por parte de las fuerzas de Gran Bretaña, Estados Unidos, Polonia y Alemania, de haberse llevado a cabo podría haber desencadenado la Tercera Guerra Mundial.

He has worked in the conservation policy and communications space in the last decade.Aha MomentThe day I truly learned that policy is vitally important for conservation and that most of what happens to ensure policies that positively impact wildlife and natural resources happens behind the scenes - where those responsible often never get any credit.  As an example, myself and several colleagues played very heavily behind the scenes of the recently passed Bi-partisan Infrastructure Bill that included a first-of-its-kind pilot program dedicated hundreds of millions of dollars to wildlife crossing structures…this program will help both people and wildlife, and most will never really know who helped make this happen.Favorite Aha Moment Quote: It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

Harry S. Truman thought a congressional committee ideally should be like a 'benevolent policeman' Not changing the facts but investigating them. He should know as he headed up one. Yet he was also critical of committees during his time that he felt did not meet the criteria. Since an investigation of a U.S. army defeat by a Native American tribe in the 1790's, to a look at an attack on the Capitol today, there is a voluminous history of Congressional committees. That makes even this hour and one half plus episode an incomplete history. We take a look at some of the committees, including HUAC the House Un-American Activities Committee, not only in the 1940's but it in it's earlies form under Martin Dies in the 1930, we take a look at Kefauver's crime commission that became a TV sensation and a Civil War era committee that is viewed by historians to have hurt the Union effort in that war.

Hershel “Woody” Williams was the last surviving WWII Medal of Honor recipient. The Marine died in July at the age of 98. He received the Medal of Honor from President Harry S. Truman for action on Iwo Jima. Corporal Williams risked his live above and beyond the call of duty over a four-hour period clearing enemy emplacements with a flame thrower. At times, he moved against the enemy alone. His actions allowed the Marine forces to advance.* Over the years, Williams has received honor in multiple ways. The Marine Corp shares his story with each new generation of soldiers. He received several honors from his home state of West Virginia. Following his death, the Senator from his state eulogized him on the Senate floor. Williams' flag-draped casket also lay in the Capitol Rotunda on July 14 as family, service members and government leaders paid their respect.* These honors help us understand Exodus 20:12. “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.” (NIV) Besides seeing the way Woody Williams was honored, consider the following synonyms for the word honor: Admire, appreciate, celebrate, commemorate, praise, look up to, live up to, be faithful to. These are the ways to treat our parents. God promises long life to those who honor their father and mother. *"Hershel W.

On this edition of Parallax Views, the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy's Grant F. Smith returns to discuss his new podcast documentary series How Israel Made AIPAC. Grant takes through the history of AIPAC, often simply referred to as the Israel lobby, from its earliest days vis-a-vis the figure of lobbyist Isaiah L. Kenen. Grant gives an overview about the origins of AIPAC and issues related to Israel in the 20th century including the Transfer Agreement and the Third Reich, Haganah arms smuggling, NUMEC and how Israel acquired nuclear weapons, the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA),  the U.S. State Department, Ze'ev "Vladimir" Jabotinsky and the Likud Party, and more. We'll also discuss the importance of this documentary series to current events and U.S. foreign policy today as well as the ways in which previous Presidents like the Pendergast Machine-affiliated Harry Truman could be compromised by private or foreign interests. Then, in a brief bonus segment, Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.Com joins us to discuss how a recent CBS documentary on U.S./NATO arming of Ukraine was pulled after Volodymyr Zelensky's government complained about it. One of the issues raised by the documentary was the question of how many of the arms being sent to Ukraine are actually making it into the hands of the military. Ukraine's foreign defense minister has called for CBS to launch an internal investigation to see who "enabled" the documentary.

It is the rare writer who can make history so compelling, so alive, that people will flock to read it.  David McCullough, who died last Sunday, was one of those writers. He was the author of two Pulitzer Prize-winning books: one about President Harry Truman and one about President John Adams. In honor of Mr. McCullough, we are reposting this episode from 2020 which featured him and two other great presidential historians: Stephen Ambrose and David Herbert Donald. They talk here about their subjects as if they had gone back in time and returned, breathless, to share the stories they'd heard.

David McCullough, the Pulitzer Prize winning author whose lovingly crafted narratives on subjects ranging from the Brooklyn Bridge to presidents John Adams and Harry Truman made him among the most popular and influential historians of his time, has died. He was 89. McCullough died Sunday at his Massachusetts home. He had been in failing health and died less than two months after his beloved wife, Rosalee.McCullough dedicated himself to sharing his own passion for history with the general public. He saw himself as an everyman, blessed with lifelong curiosity, and the chance to take on the subjects he cared about most. His fascination with architecture and construction inspired his early works on the Panama Canal and the Brooklyn Bridge. While his admiration for leaders whom he believed were good men, drew him to John Adams and Harry Truman in the 70s and 80s. He indulged his affection for Paris with the 2011 release of "The Greater Journey" and for aviation with the bestseller on The Wright brothers that came out in 2015. David McCullough was a frequent guest on this program, as well as The Book Show. I spoke with him in 2017 about a project he worked on examining the American spirit through speeches he'd written and delivered throughout his illustrious career.

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.

Hundreds of Senate cafeteria workers and their supporters rallied – and 17 were arrested – this week in front of the Dirksen Senate Office Building, demanding justice and a contract. We remember the 78-day strike by government cafeteria workers in the frigid winter of 1948 that included battles on the picket line between the AFL and the CIO and between President Harry Truman and Congress.

It's July 17th. This day in 1944, there are real questions about who will be the Vice Presidential nominee going into FDR's run for office that fall. Henry Wallace was almost chosen instead of Harry Truman — and the course of the end of WWII and a consequential moment in history may have looked very different. Jody, Niki, and Kellie discuss the twists and turns of how Truman came to be nominated over Wallace, Wallace's progressive “common man” politics, and what could have been. Sign up for our newsletter!

In Faith in Freedom: Propaganda, Presidential Politics, and the Making of an American Religion (Cornell UP, 2021), Andrew R. Polk argues that the American civil religion so many have identified as indigenous to the founding ideology was, in fact, the result of a strategic campaign of religious propaganda. Far from being the natural result of the nation's religious underpinning or the later spiritual machinations of conservative Protestants, American civil religion and the resultant "Christian nationalism" of today were crafted by secular elites in the middle of the twentieth century. Polk's genealogy of the national motto, "In God We Trust," revises the very meaning of the contemporary American nation. Polk shows how Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S Truman, and Dwight D. Eisenhower, working with politicians, advertising executives, and military public relations experts, exploited denominational religious affiliations and beliefs in order to unite Americans during the Second World War and, then, the early Cold War. Armed opposition to the Soviet Union was coupled with militant support for free economic markets, local control of education and housing, and liberties of speech and worship. These preferences were cultivated by state actors so as to support a set of right-wing positions including anti-communism, the Jim Crow status quo, and limited taxation and regulation. Faith in Freedom is a pioneering work of American religious history. By assessing the ideas, policies, and actions of three US Presidents and their White House staff, Polk sheds light on the origins of the ideological, religious, and partisan divides that describe the American polity today. Andrew R. Polk is Associate Professor of History at Middle Tennessee State University. Jackson Reinhardt is a graduate of University of Southern California and Vanderbilt University. He is currently an independent scholar, freelance writer, and research assistant.

When we think of the Biblical story, we usually think of a beleaguered population of former slaves fleeing for their lives into a desert. But if you read the Bible's account of the Israelite story, you'll see that they're consistently called upon to take up arms in their own defense. What insight could we gain from interpreting the Bible from a military perspective? On this week's episode, Rabbi Ari talked unpacked all this with the 40th Inspector General of the entire U.S. Navy—and highest ranking Jew on the Seas—former Vice Admiral Herman Shelanski. They spoke about what it means to be a warrior; whether the United States should adopt a mandatory national service program; what it means to be a part of Jewish history as an immigrant; the reason why sailors of all backgrounds love Passover; President Harry Truman's Torah scroll; and much more! Good Faith Effort is a production of Bnai Zion and SoulShop.

President Biden recently flew off to Taiwan to assure allies there that he will fight for them. And next he's headed over to Saudi Arabia to “repair ties” with those oil monarchs. This flurry of foreign travel might be strategically important for international realpolitik, but – Hello – another strategically important piece of real politics is looming right here at home: The November congressional elections! Taiwan and Saudi Arabia don't get a vote, but Texas and South Carolina do. So how about spending a bit more time flying or even whistle stopping to such places, where many hard-hit working-class families would like to see President Joe fight for and repair ties with them. In fairness, much of Biden's progressive agenda has been deliberately gummed up by such congressional blobs of do-nothingism as Mitch McConnell and Joe Manchin. But blaming them isn't winning any points for him – nor does it help the families now struggling with baby formula shortages, $5 gasoline, a farm and factory depression, etc. Instead of blame or surrender, more of Harry Truman's feisty, can-do spirit is called for – get out of the Beltway Bubble and go straight to the people with an urgent program of Big Actions that they want and need. To hell with placating McConnell and Manchin –you're the president Joe, not them, and you're not powerless. For example, Rep. Ro Khanna points out that you should use the government's emergency authority to do “preemptive buying” on the open market to stop runaway food and fuel prices. The authority to do this is already on the books, so no need to kiss McConnell's butt – just take direct presidential action for ordinary Americans. This is the difference between giving speeches telling voters you're on their side… and actually being there, so they can see it for themselves. It's honest politics.
