Der Kongress hat noch eine Woche Zeit, um einen neuen Haushalt zu verabschieden. Gelingt es nicht, eine Einigung zu erzielen, muss die Regierung den Laden erst mal dicht machen - Millionen von Bundesbediensteten werden ihre Gehaltsschecks nicht erhalten, Nationalparks und die Post werden geschlossen und auch die Wirtschaft und Börsenmärkte könnten betroffen sein. Warum weigern sich einige Abgeordnete, einen Kompromiss zu schließen, wo doch das Chaos so groß sein könnte? Geht hier Profilierung vor das Wohl des Landes? Oder ist das ein riskanter, aber legitimer Teil des Balance-of-Power-Systems? Wendy ist diese Woche in Kalifornien und schildert ihre Eindrücke von zu Hause aus.Credits:Theme Music: Reha Omayer, HamburgFind us on:Facebook: AmerikaUebersetztTwitter: @AUbersetztContact us:email@example.com
Jawbreaker fue una de las operaciones más ambiguas en la historia de la Agencia Central de Inteligencia estadounidense (CIA). La operación tuvo lugar en 2001, pocos días después de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre, que cobraron la vida de más de 2700 personas (Anderson 2015, 54). Estos ataques incitaron al presidente y al gobierno de Estados Unidos a atacar a Osama bin Laden, el líder de los terroristas. Además, el gobierno estadounidense quería destruir al grupo terrorista encabezado por Bin Laden. Jawbreaker tenía fortalezas y debilidades, pero hay un aspecto de la operación, cuya evidencia significa la mayor importancia de las operaciones. Operación Causa Justa, fue una acción militar del Ejército de los Estados Unidos llevada a cabo entre el 20 de diciembre de 1989 y el 31 de enero de 1990. Se realizó durante la administración del presidente de Estados Unidos George H. W.. Bush

https://youtu.be/QZKFTIdaXiE Then the fighters realized that the gang in the White House could not see things clearly, and that their leader (that idiot they obey) was claiming that we envied their lifestyle — when the truth, which this Pharaoh would like to hide — is that we are attacking them because of their injustice toward the Muslim world, and especially Palestine and Iraq, as well as their occupation of the land of the two sanctuaries. When the fighters saw this, they decided to come out of the shadows and take the fight into their territory, into their homes. – Osama bin Laden, Al Qaeda in Its Own Words, edited by Gilles Kepel and Jean-Pierre Milelli, translated by Pascale Ghazaleh (The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press; Cambridge, Massachusetts: 2008), p. 62. The youth hold you responsible for all of the killings and evictions of the Muslims and the violation of the sanctuaries carried out by your Zionist brothers in Lebanon. You openly supplied them with arms and finance. More than 600,000 Iraqi children have died due to lack of food and medicine, and as a result of the unjustifiable aggression (sanctions) imposed on Iraq and its people. The children of Iraq are our children. You, the U.S., together with the Saudi regime, are responsible for the shedding of the blood of these innocent children. Due to all of that, whatever treaty you have with our country is null and void. It is a duty now on every tribe in the Arabian Peninsula to fight jihad in the cause of God and to cleanse the land from those occupiers… In 1304 A.H. (1936) the awakened Muslim nation of Palestine started their great struggle, jihad, against the British occupying forces… Terrorizing you, while you are carrying arms on our land, is a legitimate and morally demanded duty. – Declaration of Jihad Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Sanctuaries (from Jihad: Bin Laden in His Own Words, Declarations, Interviews, and Speeches by Brad K. Berner; Peacock Books: 2006), p. 45, 55, 56. Watch on BitChute

September 11th, 2001, is a day that no American should ever forget. For many of us, those pictures and video of the twin towers getting hit by those airplanes and ultimately toppling over are forever seared into our memories. The narrative that was fed to us in the aftermath has led to countless deaths around the world, wars we shouldn't have been a part of and Constitutional Rights lost in the name of keeping us safe. It turns out we were spoon-fed lies. Dr Michael Scheuer joined me during this episode of The Jeff Dornik Show to share his experience surround 9/11. Dr Scheuer is the former CIA Intelligence Officer in charge of tracking Osama bin Laden in the years leading up to that tragic day. He explains how our government refused to do anything about bin Laden, despite the fact that Dr Scheuer was tracking him and knew exactly where he was and what he was doing. We then dive into some of the facts surrounding both the horrific event on September 11th itself, as well as the aftermath. Given the fact that we were lied to, will anyone ever be held accountable? Why are the same ones who lied to us repeatedly now the ones pushing us to go into war with Russia? We have to make sure that we never forget those men and women who died on 9/11. We should also honor their memory with the truth about who was really behind the attacks and what actually happened.

And Another Thing With Dave, by Dave Smith #AATWD In this episode, part 2 of 4 part series with Uncle Leo from the Stereo app. Summary: In this episode, the speakers discuss various topics including hologram technology, conspiracy theories, and government deception. They touch on the use of holograms in Dubai for the grand opening of a skyscraper, as well as the potential military applications of this technology. The conversation then shifts to conspiracy theories such as Project Blue Beam and the idea of using an outside threat to unite people. The speakers also delve into the events surrounding 9/11 and raise questions about the official narrative. They mention the involvement of Saudi Arabia and Israel, as well as the suspicious behavior of certain individuals. The conversation concludes with a discussion about crisis actors and the potential for deception in various aspects of society. Key Takeaways: Hologram technology is being used for grand openings and entertainment purposes, but its potential military applications are concerning. Conspiracy theories like Project Blue Beam suggest that an outside threat could be used to unite people and consolidate power. The events of 9/11 raise questions about the official narrative, including the involvement of Saudi Arabia and Israel. The behavior of certain individuals, such as the dancing Israelis, adds to the suspicion surrounding 9/11. Crisis actors are a real phenomenon, and people can be swayed to act against their morals for the right price. Quotes: "They're already doing those holograms in China." - Speaker B "We've seen introductions to Tupac and Michael Jackson do this for Hollywood and entertainment purposes." - Speaker C "The only way you can unite all the powers and the people as one on Earth is if you had an outside threat." - Speaker C "We're supposed to believe that all these systems that we have in place and that we rehearse the functionality of all failed simultaneously. I just don't buy it." - Speaker A "What do you mean we need a gay president? We already got one. Obama's gay, and he's married to a trans." - Joan Rivers Thank you for tuning in!

Each 9/11 Anniversary, some politicians try to make us forget what happened on September 11, 2001 - the worst terror attack on American soil. Although Ilhan Omar would like us to think of this date as, “Somepeople did something,” we had better know which people did what or we will be at an even greater risk of it happening again. The ‘people' were 19 Radical Islamist Al Qaeda terrorists, led by Osama bin Laden. The ‘something' was hijacking 4 planes that crashed into the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and, thanks to brave passengers, into a Pennsylvania field instead of Washington, D.C. This year, the 22nd Anniversary of 9/11, the Obama/Biden White Househas gone even further to try to erase 9/11 from our minds and our Anniversary commemorations - with slaps in the face of victims, heroes and all Americans. Last year, they let the 9/11 Tribute Museum die from lack of funds because people couldn't go to museums during the Covid19 lockdowns. But, they found billions to give to the Taliban and other terrorists. This year they're trying to kill the only remaining 9/11 museum in Manhattan and you will hear how. Up until now, all Presidents have commemorated the Anniversary at one of the sites of the attack. This year, Biden will be the first to be far, far away - in Alaska instead. You will hear why. Also, this year, the Obama/Biden White House has decided to give the remaining prisoners in Guantanamo - including the architect of 9/11, KhalidSheikh Mohammed, a plea deal instead of the death penalty. NYC Mayor Adams has given the go-ahead for loudspeakers to blast out the Call to Prayer from mosques. What could go wrong? For one thing it will trigger PTSD from 9/11. But wait, there's more. You will hear why these politicians are trying to make us forget.
Kaum hat der Laden eröffnet, kommen ganz viele Kunden: Myrtel die Maus, Igor Igel und Ochse Bulli sind da, genauso wie Flatsch der Biber und Suleyka Schmetterling. Und alle wollen sie Fahrrad fahren. (Eine Geschichte von Renus Berbig, erzählt hat sie Sonja Beißwenger)
I've got a question which seems to be baffling all American society? Why is the healthcare system consistently still broken? It's a question we all seem to still be scratching our heads to come up with an answer to, probably because there isn't a logical and acceptable answer and I've got stats to back it up. According to Gallup - For the first time in Gallup's two-decade trend, less than half of Americans are complimentary about the quality of U.S. healthcare, with 48% rating it “excellent” or “good.” The slight majority now rate healthcare quality as subpar, including 31% saying it is “only fair” and 21% -- a new high -- calling it “poor.” These findings are from Gallup's annual Health and Healthcare survey. The latest update was conducted Nov. 9-Dec. 2, 2022. A key reason views of U.S. healthcare quality have been trending downward in recent years is that Republicans' positive ratings have been subdued since President Donald Trump left office. Currently, 56% of Republicans rate healthcare quality as excellent or good, whereas 69% felt this way in 2020 and 75% in 2019. Republicans' views of healthcare quality also dropped in 2014 after implementation of the Affordable Care Act before rebounding under Trump. Meanwhile, Democrats' positive ratings have been steady at a lower level (currently 44%). Amanda Laden is the Founder and CEO of Period to Pause, the leading platform for elevating people's voices in their own health, healthcare treatment, and well-being. Amanda started Period to Pause equip people to advocate for their needs, to change a system that was not set up to support women and gender non-conforming people, and to help people to rise, vocalize, and mobilize to change the healthcare system. She is also a growth strategist and works with organizations to create strategies to support diverse populations and create cultures of inclusion and belonging. “I spent decades being undiagnosed with a disease called adenomyosis. The disease caused immense chronic pain, cost me the opportunity to have children, and years of suffering. Once I was diagnosed and learned that I could have taken measures to reduce it, but the un-diagnosis was a system of the medical industrial complex and the money-making machine of IVF, it infuriated me. I started to dig deeply into women's issues and uncover hidden truths as well as new information that all of us need to know. I now share my story as well as those of others so that we take back out power to advocate for much-needed change.” She joined me this week to tell me more.

SEASON 2 EPISODE 26: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:43) SPECIAL COMMENT: In an April deposition in the New York Civil Fraud case, Trump told the Attorney General's office that he wasn't running his company because he was too busy saving the world from nuclear holocaust and saving millions of lives because he was the only one to think of DEALING with North Korea. You're WELCOME LOSERS. This underscores a part of Trump's insanity that it sometimes seems like we have gotten used to: he really DOES think he's the first person to ever think of something, or to DO something, that everybody else in his position did as long ago as 1946. I never hear him say something like this – “Only I saved millions of lives because only I dealt with North Korea” without thinking of what the idiot director Roger DeBris in Mel Brooks' movie “The Producers” says about the play itself – quote – “I never knew that the ‘THIRD REICH' meant Germany! I mean it's just DRENCHED with historical goodies like that.” That's Trump. Still, Trump didn't save Peter Navarro, who goes to trial – but only after failing to grab a paper “TRUMP LOST” sign held an inch over his head. And he didn't save Rudy Giuliani, who goes to trial for slandering Shaye Moss and Ruby Freeman and hours later went on radio and slandered Shaye Moss and Ruby Freeman AGAIN. And he didn't save Kevin McCarthy who will now have to start an impeachment without holding a vote – which he once violently criticized – or hold the vote and LOSE IT. The knives are out for Fani Willis. The Georgia State Senate Majority Leader now threatens her with reprimands, sanctions, hearings, defunding and removal. His name is Gooch and he's from Lumpkin County. But the Georgia State HOUSE Speaker, Jon Burns, another Republican, says trying to defund Willis violates separation of powers. With no hyperbole: I worry for Speaker Burns' safety. And the podcast celebrates a big milestone with a big thank you to you: the August audience was 3,000,000! B-Block (21:44) POSTSCRIPTS TO THE NEWS: McConnell freezes again. Nice of his staffers to leave him out there and ask reporters to yell at him. And the brewing story about how if Mitch goes, the Democratic Kentucky governor may defy a new law and appoint a Democrat in his place. Plus the Proud Boys sentencings that weren't. (25:18) THE WORST PERSONS IN THE WORLD: Anti-pickleball millionaire Holly Peterson has an unexpected feature in her home: her own pickleball court. The guy who claimed he killed Bin Laden got arrested and replied by claiming he killed bin Laden. And why even in these days of loose ethics in cable news, MSNBC must fire primetime anchor Stephanie Ruhle. C-Block (32:00) EVERY DOG HAS ITS DAY: Poor puppy Thomas: attacked, left to die on the train tracks, and still wagging as humans treat him.

Emotional language, repetition and a sense of shared values are some of the ways people find common ground in conversation. They are also methods used by two of the world's most infamous terrorists - Osama bin Laden and the Christchurch mosque gunman - to incite extremist violence. Charles Darwin University's expert in forensic linguistics, Dr Awni Etaywe says examining their writings can help authorities identify other potential terrorist threats. Etaywe spoke to Corin Dann.
We're off this week, but sharing another one of our faves! -- Original Show Notes, January 9, 2023 -- Wikipedia is your one-stop shop for high level info on public figures, geography, and academic concepts. But the volunteer editors of the free and open digital reference also make copious entries about "low quality images of cats," "Blobjects," "National Moth Week," Osama bin Laden's porn stash, and that time the Dave Matthews Band tour bus dropped poop on people in Chicago. Alli and Lindsey talk with Annie Rauwerda, a writer, longtime Wikipedia editor, and creator of "Depths of Wikipedia," which has more than 1.1 million followers on Instagram alone. Annie discusses how the culture of Wikipedia generates obtuse and often hilarious articles, concepts, and photos taken out of context.

It's time for the final installment of this year's in-person interviews I conducted at the legendary Newport Folk Festival which took place in Newport, Rhode Island, July 28-30. First up, my friends Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran of Illiterate Light stopped by to chat with me about the Bike Stage that they hosted, curated and operated. Jeff and Jake -- a hard-core rocking two-piece by day -- have created a sustainable and entirely off-the-grid solution to set a shining example of how we can mitigate the environmental impact of the live music ecosystem. This is the embodiment of Think Globally, Act Locally!!Next up, I spoke to Jake Ewald of Slaughter Beach, Dog, a Newport Folk first-timer whose alt-folk brand of artistry was a perfect fit for the Harbor Stage audience. I talk to Jake about his powerful songwriting and how very unexpected it was for him to even be at Newport Folk. We share tons of laughs as Jake's comedic timing is spot-on. Slaughter Beach, Dog's new album Crying, Laughing, Waving, Smiling will be out September 22.I also had the pleasure of sitting down with Erich Huffaker and Mariam Diakite of Orchestra Gold, a band with roots both in Oakland, CA as well as Mali, West Africa. I talk with Erich and Mariam about the African Psychedelic Rock movement and how African Dance is integrated into the ethos of this band, whose mission is to "spread healing and community through the universal gift of music." Amen. And to close down the 2023 Folk Fest series, I had a gem of a convo with Newport natives Evan St. Martin and Dave Sarazen of Laden Valley. The first act to hit the stage this year, it was a surreal experience for sure, and they both related to me just how incredibly special it was for them, after years of attending the festival as fans, to actually be up there performing one of their rare live shows. This was an example of the pure joy of live performance for both fans and the artists themselves.It has truly been an honor to bring all these amazing artists to the Roadcase audience. Newport is a truly special experience for artists and fans alike, and I'm glad I can bring some of that excitement and musical joy to all of you. See you all at Newport 2024, and in the meantime, Rock On!!
Hour 2 - Good Wednesday morning! Here's what Nick Reed covers this hour: Vivek Ramaswamy suggested that China could invade Taiwan if the US gets semiconductor independence. President Biden announced Monday that survivors of the Maui fires would receive “a one-time $700 payment per household,” after he faced criticism for telling a reporter he had “no comment” on the rising death toll. Biden on Tuesday appeared to forget the name Maui, referring to the island in a speech in Milwaukee as 'the one where you see on television all the time.' President Biden raised eyebrows on social media Tuesday after he told a crowd in Wisconsin that he watched a bridge collapse in Pittsburgh last year. Nick pulls a story from May 3, 2012. ABC reported that Osama bin Laden asked that Al Qaeda form hit squads to kill President Obama and General David Petraeus, but that Vice President Biden be spared because Biden is "totally unprepared for the presidency" and making him president by killing Obama would "lead the U.S. into a crisis."
We're taking an intermission during August. Rather than disappearing, we're made you a montage of sound-feels selected from previous episodes. This week's theme is coastal. Listen to four lovely clips of coastal scapes we've captured. Take a tour from Tenby in South Wales, Coldingham Sands in South East Scotland, and Nothe Fort on the Jurassic coast of England. Here are the descriptions and full episode links so you can enjoy them in full. 174 Where cool woodland meets the summer sea At the far end of the long sandy beach at Tenby there's an area of cool, shady woodland. From the distance and under hot summer sunshine, it looks idyllic. Inviting. Under the trees the hot sunshine air is cooler. Laden with sweet musty smells and sappy perfumes. The birds are singing. Their sound reflecting between the trees. Melding with the washing waves. This place is like a temperate greenhouse. A naturally reverberant space. Perfect, to set down, forget about doing anything, and just listen for a while. 178 Waves of the intertidal zone It's late and you're out. in solitude, For an evening walk, on a wide open beach. Tenby beach in South Wales. Here, is white noise solitude. You scrunch over flat corrugated sand towards the shallowing waves. Then wade in. Immersed. Ankle deep and paddling. White noise is everywhere. Waves, are everywhere. Racing. Washing over each other. Left to right. Right to left. Face on. And under. Rushing away, behind you. Tiny bubbles. Sparkling. Shallowing. And dissolving, into fizz. 150 Looking down on Coldingham Sands A bench. Perfectly perched, by the sandy steps that lead steeply down onto Coldingham Sands. Perfectly perched with a sound-view so wide, and angle just right, to hear the incoming waves as they break over outcrops of craggy, elephant-sized rocks. It's a bright August day, and the sun is mistily lighting up the sea, the rocky cliffs, and the plunging, richly vegetated slopes. This place, on the East Coast of Scotland, is special. It's a landscape under a genuinely quiet sky. A sky free of human-made noise, where the detail and quality of natural sound can reach the ear drums intact. 176 Early morning below Nothe Fort A smooth, sunrise sea, heard from a tree, growing up out of a bundle of boulders close to the water's edge. It's early April, and just after daybreak. The Lento kit is in the tree, capturing the wide spatial quiet of this place with nobody about, right beside Nothe Fort in Weymouth on the south coast of England. Ahead, looking south, the sea. West is Portland. East is Weymouth, then Durdle Door, near to Lulworth Cove. In this little settled spot, and from far left of scene, the sea seems to be breathing, softly, as it sweeps the shingle at the foot of the fort's huge parapet wall. Perhaps it's still asleep. Has it not heard the blackbird? Has it not heard the wren? Or the garden warbler? Maybe it does, in a dream.
On January 17th, 1991, Operation Desert Storm begins. As President Bush braces for high casualties, Saddam Hussein desperately seeks a path to survival. In Baghdad, Coalition air forces rain hell on Iraqi soldiers and civilians alike, while American diplomats scramble to defuse a potential crisis in Israel. US infantrymen come face-to-face with the fourth largest army in the world…with surprising results. As oil wells burn and journalists jockey for access, the war reaches a bloody climax at the “Highway of Death”. SOURCES: Aburish, Said K. Saddam Hussein: The Politics of Revenge. 2000.

This week, The Pitch's Abby Olcese joins us for two Nic Cage-fronted true stories of dubious execution! First up is Larry Charles' Army of One, a grating retelling of the real-life tale of Gary Faulkner (Cage), who was arrested in Pakistan hatching a plot to kill Osama bin Laden in 2010, all for 'Murica. In theory, it could be a neat little dramedy about the self-delusion of the flag-pilled white dude; in practice, it's an annoying slog with Cage making all kinds of delusional choices (the voice he does here) and everyone's favorite kook Russell Brand as God. Things get a little better, if a little safer, with Mario Van Peebles' po-faced WWII drama USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage. Peebles casts Cage as the doomed captain of the equally-ill-fated Navy ship that famously smuggled vital parts for the atomic bomb behind enemy lines, only to get shot down by a Japanese U-boat. From there comes starvation, sharks, and a whole lotta sitting around and waiting.

In 1972, the dirtiest bank in the world was founded in Pakistan, registered in Luxembourg and the Cayman Islands, and operated from the City of London throughout 70 countries across 400 locations. The purpose of the creation of this bank was to handle the accounting, forgery, and banking needs of the 3,000 gangsters, money launderers, drug lords, arms dealers, human traffickers, and spooks that they considered to be their VIP customers. The Bank of Credit and Commerce International was involved in many scandals plaguing the American government during the 1970s and 1980s, from the Iran-Contra & Ollie North drugs for weapons plan to Osama bin Laden's fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan to the selling of chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein during his war against Iran. BCCI was a bank by gangsters, for gangsters. At least it was until 1991 when it all came crashing down in a spectacular fall, but not before between $10 - $15 billion was stolen and distributed to the inner circle of the bank to further their criminal activities around the globe without so much as a proper investigation into where it all went.

Jeh Johnson is a partner in the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP and the former Secretary of Homeland Security (2013-2017), General Counsel of the Department of Defense (2009-2012), General Counsel of the Department of the Air Force (1998-2001), and an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York (1989-1991). In private life, in addition to practicing law, Johnson is on the board of directors of Lockheed Martin, U.S. Steel, MetLife, the Council on Foreign Relations, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York City, and is a trustee of Columbia University. Johnson is frequent commentator on national and homeland security matters on NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, FOX, CNBC, NPR, Bloomberg TV and other news networks, and has written op-eds in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Hill, Lawfare, and elsewhere. As of March 2022, Johnson also hosts a classic R&B radio show on FM public radio station WBGO, 88.3FM, based in Newark, NJ. As Secretary of Homeland Security, Johnson was the head of the third largest cabinet department of the U.S. government, consisting of 230,000 personnel and 22 components, including TSA, Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Services, U.S Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Coast Guard, the Secret Service, and FEMA. Johnson's responsibilities as Secretary included counterterrorism, cybersecurity, aviation security, border security, port security, maritime security, protection of our national leaders, the detection of chemical, biological and nuclear threats to the homeland, and response to natural disasters. In three years as Secretary of DHS, Johnson is credited with management reform of the Department, which brought about a more centralized approach to decision-making in the areas of budgets, acquisition and overall policy. Johnson also raised employee morale across the Department, reflected in the September 2016 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey. As General Counsel of the Department of Defense, Johnson is credited with being the legal architect for the U.S. military's counterterrorism efforts in the Obama Administration. In 2010, Johnson co-authored the report that paved the way for the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell by Congress later that year. In his book Duty, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates wrote that Johnson "proved to be the finest lawyer I ever worked with in government - a straightforward, plain-speaking man of great integrity, with common sense to burn and a good sense of humor." According to published reports, Johnson provided the opinion that was the legal basis for U.S. special forces to enter Pakistan to kill Osama bin Laden on May 1, 2011. Johnson is a 2022 recipient of the Ellis Island Medal of Honor, a 2021 recipient of the American Lawyer's Lifetime Achievement Award, as “an American statesman [who] has devoted his career to the public interest,” and a 2018 recipient of the Ronald Reagan Peace Through Strength Award, presented at the Reagan Presidential Library, for “contribut[ing] greatly to the defense of our nation,” and “guiding us through turbulent times with courage and wisdom.” In 2020 the Chief Judge of New York State asked Johnson to conduct a comprehensive review of equal justice in the New York State courts. On October 1, 2020 Johnson issued a public report with his findings and recommendations, all of which the Chief Judge has committed to adopting. Johnson has debated at both the Cambridge and Oxford Unions in England, and in November 2019 was conferred honorary life membership in the Cambridge Union. Johnson is a graduate of Morehouse College (1979) and Columbia Law School (1982) and the recipient of 13 honorary degrees. Johnson married “the girl next-door,” literally, Dr. Susan DiMarco, in 1994. Susan is a retired dentist, a volunteer at the southern border and in numerous other activities, and, at the request of the U.S. Navy, is the sponsor of the Virginia-class submarine USS NEW JERSEY (SSN-796). In February 2023, Johnson and his family history were profiled on an episode of PBS' Finding Your Roots. For Jazz fans, tune into “All Things Soul with Jeh Johnson", once a month on Saturdays from 8 – 10 am on WBGO 88.3 FM. On this episode, Secretary Johnson shares his one way ticket to Birmingham, Alabama on May 20, 1961, to resume the Freedom Rides, and highlights the role they had in the US Civil Rights Movement. During the course of our conversation, he also covers his family history as unearthed by Henry Louis Gates on Finding Your Roots, how he approached managing the Department of Homeland Security, concerns about cybersecurity and AI and his love for classic R&B which he features on his radio show.

Eliot and Eric welcome Michael Vickers, the author of By All Means Available: Memoirs of a Life in Intelligence, Special Operations and Strategy (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2023). They discuss his role in overseeing the CIA's covert assistance program to the Afghan resistance in the war against Soviet occupation in the 1980s, how his experiences as a Green Beret impacted his approach to policy making as a senior official, his academic work at the Office of Net Assessment and CSBA on the revolution in warfare, his return to government in the Bush 43 Administration orchestrating the intensification of the war against Al Qaeda and his role in the bin Laden raid, as well as his thoughts on the endgame in Afghanistan and the lessons of earlier proxy wars for the current fight in Ukraine. They also discuss the delicacy of working with nuclear land mines as a special forces officer. https://www.amazon.com/All-Means-Available-Intelligence-Operations/dp/1101947705/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1689088835&sr=8-1 https://plus.thebulwark.com/p/the-shadow-wars-of-michael-vickers https://csbaonline.org/research/publications/the-revolution-in-war/publication/1 Shield of the Republic is a Bulwark podcast co-sponsored by the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia.
