What the Hell Is Going On
WTH Donald Trump 2024? Karl Rove on Whether the Former President can be Beaten

What the Hell Is Going On

The 2024 presidential nominee field is starting to take shape, with headlines pointing to a Biden-Trump replay. But are those really the only likely options? Actually, no. Two-thirds of polled Republicans want someone other than Trump, but who can continue Trump's policies. This means energy independence, a conservative court, cutting taxes, hawkish China policy, a strong military—all led by someone authentic, personal, and who can lead the country for eight strong years. One possibility is DeSantis, who has rallied support for his conservative domestic policy but is hedging on foreign and defense policy. There are other good options as well, but the GOP base is still afraid of offending Trump's base, a stumbling block going up against a fairly robust Democratic bench. Make no mistake: this is an inflection point for the Republican party. Will it regress to the pre-Pearl Harbor, GOP, or Democratic-Ted Kennedy isolationism? Or will someone take up the Reagan mantle, and govern as the leader of the free world, in such a way that China, Russia, and other aggressors take notice? These questions and more with Karl Rove. Rove is the former Senior Advisor to George W. Bush, and former Chief of Staff. He is a Fox News contributor and a columnist for the Wall Street Journal. He is the author of Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight.Download the transcript here.

Attorney and author Shirley Ann Higuchi was puzzled when her dying mother asked that the koden money from her pending funeral be donated to a place called Heart Mountain Relocation Center in Wyoming. After her mom died, Shirley was even more mystified when a committee claiming to represent HMRC asked a representative of her family to attend a ceremony at there as they dedicated a trail to the late Setsuko. Her reluctant decision to travel to this remote site that had unjustly imprisoned nearly 11,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry after the attack on Pearl Harbor, HI, not only started her on an in-depth journey into this dark chapter of America's racist past, but it slowly opened her eyes to the long-term, lingering effects that this traumatic experience had on her parents and on her and her sibling. Her book "Setsuko's Secret: Heart Mountain and the Legacy of the Japanese American Incarceration," not only chronicles the injustices and the in-fighting, but is also illustrated with little-known stories of the suffering that some of the Japanese Americans had to endure.

In 1942, just months after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, tensions were high all along the west coast. Might the Japanese invade California? It sure seemed like a possibility. After a submarine surfaced and shot at a nearby oil well, the city of Los Angeles was on alert. In the early morning hours of February 25th, something caused numerous stations to fire anti-aircraft guns toward the sky. Was it the Japanese army? Alien Invaders? A spy balloon?

The Leader of the Insurrection in action, worse than 9/11 and Pearl Harbor combinedhttps://twitter.com/greg_price11/status/1632912031882805250Someone at the top of the DOJ did not want Americans to see the surveillance videos. Despite intense media obsession, despite an act of despicable violence we were told was domestic terrorism, despite the possibility that more eyes viewing the evidence might find more clues, despite the requirement that exonerating or mitigating evidence be turned over to the defense, someone at the top of the DOJ did not want Americans to see the surveillance footage of . . . The Oklahoma City Bombing. Ten years after the deadly murders and the convictions of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols the DOJ still didn't want Americans to see McVeigh getting out of the Ryder truck he rented. Or, was it that they didn't want Americans to see McVeigh and the Third Terrorist exiting the truck? One person certainly knows the answer to that and his name is Merrick Garland, who Revolver.News Senior Editor Darrin Beattie calls “the ‘Regime Janitor.'” The same Merrick Garland who runs the DOJ that told Americans Officer Brian Sidnick was murdered on J6, that the so-called Q'Anon Shaman broken and entered and committed property destruction--both of which were absolute lies--didn't want Americans to see the video footage that proves they are lies. They told us Trump caused this just like they said Rush Limbaugh--God rest the Maha--caused Oklahoma City. In the Episode we look at the commonalities between the J6 lies and the Oklahoma City narrative. Some questions: how on earth did the FBI complete an investigation of Terry Nichols when, years after he was in prison, they suddenly found a cache of explosives and blasting camps in his house? Why did the FBI try to talk witnesses into changing their minds about seeing the Third Terrorist who whom the FBI had launched a massive search . . . a search they then dropped with no explanation?What does God say? I find an increasing amount of comfort remembering The Lord sees all and Jesus will come again to judgeHebrews 4:13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account2 Corinthians 5:10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. 01:37, Darren Beattie on Merrick GarlandCongressional Transcript: Degree of skepticism surrounding investigation of Oklahoma City Bombing. The Third Terrorist, Revised Edition, by Jayna Davis (who seems to have disappeared) BREAKING: Never before seen January 6 footage shows Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick walking around the building after the time media outlets claimed he was killed by protesters.The J6 Committee had access to this tape but refused to release it.McConnell said it was a "mistake" for Tucker Carlson to show January 6 footage that the government fought to keep hidden.Schumer: "Rupert Murdoch has a special obligation to stop Tucker Carlson from going on tonight [and] from letting him go on again and again and again [because] our democracy depends on it."I was told the QAnon shaman was leading an insurrection not the one who is being led by police throughout the capital building.

EPISODE 148: COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN A-Block (1:44) SPECIAL COMMENT: As he set out to gaslight his Gullibles into believing the January 6th video "proves" there was false flag, with "sight-seers" led astray by a few "hooligans," what was the ONE thing Tucker Carlson could NOT do? What, as the prospect of a $1,600,000,000 damage judgment against Fox loomed in the Dominion Voting Systems defamation case, did he need to avoid at all costs? Say something like "The 2020 election was a grave betrayal of American democracy, given the facts that have since emerged about that election. No honest person can deny it." He RE-ENACTED FOX'S LIES FROM 2020 as documented in the Dominion depositions and texts. If that weren't good (bad) enough he also defamed Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. I guess they'll have to co-own the channel with Dominion. Now what? Does Rupert Murdoch throw Carlson overboard? Fire him to try to tamp down the Dominion Crisis AND the Cheney/Kinzinger crisis? How did Fox let him put this on? How did Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham and the others not strangle Carlson into unconsciousness rather than let him do what he did? Carlson's shtick was unsurprisingly thin. But at least he added a catchphrase to the lexicon of lying and manipulation: "The Video Proves This." (NARRATOR: The video didn't prove this).

The name “Enterprise” is not exclusive to fictional starships or the space shuttle; in fact, nineteen ships of the British Royal Navy and nine of the United States Navy have born the name (spelled either with an S or a Z). Undoubtedly, the most famous USS Enterprise is the World War Two-era aircraft carrier, which fought in more battles in the Pacific War than any other vessel, earned twenty battle stars, and is today the most decorated ship in American naval history. “The Big E,” (first of her many nicknames) was commissioned in May 1938 and attached to the Atlantic fleet for her first year of service. As tensions rose with Japan and the Navy Department realized the importance of aircraft carriers in the Pacific, the Enterprise was transferred to the Pacific Fleet and based first at San Diego and then at Pearl Harbor. Join us as we teach you about the most decorated ship in the history of the US Navy, the USS Enterprise. We talk about her history, engagements, and why she was called, The Grey Ghost. When it comes to the United States Navy, names carry with them the legends of those ships which came before, and history will surely not forget the name Enterprise. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/15minutehistory/support

In the years leading up to the Second World War, the U.S. was represented in Japan by Ambassador Joseph Grew: born from a patrician family, Harvard-educated, ran away to the foreign service, and deeply respected by his fellow diplomats and Japanese politicians alike. From his arrival in Tokyo in 1932 to when he was eventually repatriated back to the US in 1942, after Pearl Harbor, Grew dutifully reported to and advised the U.S. on what to do with an increasingly imperialist, militarist—and, at many times—dysfunctional Japan. And if officials had listened to Grew, as Steve Kemper tells it in his book Our Man In Tokyo: An American Ambassador and the Countdown to Pearl Harbor (Marine Books, 2022), the history of US-Japan relations may have looked very different.

The December 7, 1941, surprise attack on Pearl Harbor thrust theUnited States into World War II. Just six months later in May 1942,flying new C-47 transport aircraft, the 60th Troop Carrier Group ledthe way as the first U.S. TCG to deploy to England and the EuropeanTheater of Operations in World War II. Leading the way to victory,the 60th TCG's first mission—dropping U. S. paratroopers outside ofOran, North Africa—was not only the first combat airborne missionin U.S. Army history, but also the longest airborne mission of theentire war. This drop spearheaded Operation TORCH, also known asthe Invasion of North Africa, by taking key Axis airfields just inlandfrom the amphibious landing zones. The 60th TCG went on to fly some of the first combat aeromedical evacuation missions and the first combat mission towing CG-4A “Waco” gliders during Operation HUSKY—the Invasion of Sicily. As the new airborne, air land,aeromedical evacuation, and glider missions matured in World WarII, the 60th TCG continued to play a major role, paying in blood forvaluable lessons learned in the school of hard knocks. The group laterflew dramatic missions into Yugoslavia, supporting Partisans as partof the secret war in the Balkans, an episode of World War II historystill all but unknown today and dropped British paratroops in theairborne invasion of Greece. The Group was inactivated at the end ofthe war. Today's guest is Col. Mark C.

East West Players is an Asian American theatre organization in Los Angeles, founded in 1965. As the nation's first professional Asian American theatre organization, East West Players continues to produce works and educational programs that give voice to the Asian-Pacific American experience today. According to the theatre's website "East West Players' current home is in the upper 3 levels of the Union Center for the Arts in the northwestern end of the Little Tokyo Historic District. The company had spent the previous 32 years since its founding in a 99-seat theatre in Silver Lake before moving to the new David Henry Hwang Theatre in the Union Center for the Arts in 1998. The Union Center for the Arts was formerly Union Church, the combined home of three Japanese American congregations, was completed in 1923. With the onset of World War II, it was in front of this building that residents of the district joined the residents of Terminal Island, whose community had been razed 48 hours after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Residents lined up with a single suitcase allowance awaiting transportation to join 10,000 people sent to the War Relocation Center in Manzanar in 1942. Most of those transported to the internment camps lost all of their property and were unable to return to living in their old community after the war, scattering the population throughout the city. During the war, the building was used as a community center for African Americans arriving from the deep south in search of work in wartime industry as part of the ‘Great Migration'. The neighborhood had some of the only housing in the city that did not have restrictive housing covenants based on color, and quickly became highly populated. Three years into the war, the neighborhood was renamed Bronzeville, and was home to crowded conditions and ‘breakfast clubs' – jazz clubs that were known to stay open until dawn. In 1943, a part of the ‘Zoot Suit Riots' spread into the area. At the close of 1945 the Japanese Americans gradually began re-establishing a community center, where Little Tokyo remains a very diverse part of central Los Angeles. The building located on Judge John Aiso Street was damaged during the 1994 Northridge earthquake, leaving it unusable. The Little Tokyo Service Center Community Development Corporation completed a multi-million dollar renovation of the building in 1998 to house three arts organizations – the East West Players, Visual Communications, and LA Artcore.

El ataque japonés a Estados Unidos en la Segunda Guerra Mundial fue una sorpresa militar que tuvo lugar el 7 de diciembre de 1941. El ataque fue llevado a cabo por la Armada Imperial Japonesa contra la base naval de Pearl Harbor, situada en Hawái. Antes del ataque, las relaciones entre Estados Unidos y Japón se habían deteriorado significativamente debido a la creciente expansión japonesa en Asia y la política de aislacionismo de Estados Unidos. En respuesta a la agresión japonesa en China y otras partes de Asia, Estados Unidos había impuesto sanciones económicas a Japón, lo que aumentó las tensiones entre ambos países. El ataque a Pearl Harbor fue una respuesta del gobierno japonés a las sanciones de Estados Unidos, así como un intento de debilitar la capacidad naval de Estados Unidos en el Pacífico. La operación fue cuidadosamente planeada y ejecutada, y fue un gran éxito militar para Japón en términos de daños infligidos a la flota de Estados Unidos. El ataque a Pearl Harbor fue un momento decisivo en la Segunda Guerra Mundial y llevó a Estados Unidos a declarar la guerra a Japón, entrando así en la Segunda Guerra Mundial. El ataque también tuvo un impacto significativo en la percepción de la guerra por parte del pueblo estadounidense y aumentó su determinación para ganar la guerra.

During a town hall on CNN on Thursday, White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan stated that President Joe Biden was advised by the military that the Abrams tanks the U.S. agreed to send to Ukraine wouldn't “make sense” for that war. President Joe Biden would lose to former President Donald Trump in a head-to-head 2024 election, the 12th straight month of losses driven by economic uncertainty, according to the national McLaughlin and Associates survey. Hundreds of Americans swarmed the funeral of Herman Schmidt, a member of the Navy who was killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor but whose remains were only recently identified, after some were concerned no one would appear to honor the deceased sailor. A Santa Clarita Valley woman became one of the more than 1,750 active investigations into fraud from the state's unemployment department after she was hit with a $13,500 tax bill for Employment Development Department benefits she never applied for nor received.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has infiltrated the United States to an alarming degree, not just to steal economic and military secrets, but also to censor academia and bribe politicians, according to Chen Guangcheng, the blind human rights lawyer who escaped communist China and spoke at the 2020 GOP convention. Joining Larry Elder, Mr. Chen calls on the Biden administration to take CCP's threat more seriously and help the Chinese people regain control of China. A Harvard-Harris poll shows that the public has no idea how bad the illegal immigration crisis is. When asked how many illegal crossers are entering the U.S., they dramatically underestimate the number. Joining Larry Elder to discuss this is Art Del Cueto, the Vice President and spoke person for the National Border Patrol Council.

A world without words; the chilling babblings of Bing's ChatGPT A.I. The Orwell Estate should sue everyone in power for copyright violation - “It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words.”When the bosses erase words from the common memory, they destroy a full range of communication. When the power structure absolves words of the responsibility to carry any meaning, they remove mein itself. All of this is being done by The Party, just as warned in the Internet meme: “1984 was a warning, not a to do list” is busily trash-binning meaning and the ability to share thoughts. For instance, they cannot reasonably be called insults, but theNew York Times has yet another list of words they have stricken. These words describe people indigenous to North America as brave leaders of a tribe. Remember the 9/11 meets Pearl Harbor meets D-Day of January 6th and the insurrection.

Maury Irvine was born in San Francisco in 1924. He was deeply moved by the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor and immediately attempted to enlist in the Navy but due to a birth defect in one eye he was turned away. Maury was determined so went back 27 times, hoping to catch a recruiter who would let him pass, but didn't. He was eventually hired by TWA Airlines, who had lowered the eyesight requirement because of the war, but after realizing he would be desk-bound there he joined the Merchant Marines. Maury became a decoder during WWII, working closely with the ship's captain and traveling the world. His fascination with travel, science and culture took him all over the world, at one point he visited 33 countries in seven years. He holds a PhD in physics, taught at Lehigh University and worked for Bell Labs during the development of the transistor computer, among other projects. After retiring Maury volunteered at The Museum of the Rockies, where Jack Horner was the Head of Paleontology. The pair hit it off and eventually traveled to five different continents together digging for dinosaur bones. Maury volunteered at the Museum for almost 30 years and donated over 10,000 hours of service. He has lived a remarkable and inspiring life, and Blair and I are fortunate to have spoken with him for this podcast.

In 1932 career diplomat Joseph Grew was posted to Japan as the American Ambassador. At the time, Japan was in crisis. Naval officers had assassinated the prime minister, and conspiracies flourished. The military had a stranglehold on the government. War with Russia loomed. Not only was the country in turmoil, but its relationship with America was also rapidly deteriorating. For the next decade, Grew attempted to warn American leaders about the risks of Japan's raging nationalism and rising militarism while also trying to stabilize Tokyo's increasingly erratic and volatile foreign policy.  From domestic terrorism by Japanese extremists to the global rise of Hitler and the fateful attack on Pearl Harbor, the events that unfolded during Grew's tenure proved to be pivotal for Japan and for the world in the run-up to WWII. To discuss Joesph Grew and Japanese American relations running up to the war, I'm joined by Steve Kemper. Steve is the author of Our Man in Tokyo, which draws on Grew's diary, correspondence, dispatches, and first-hand Japanese accounts to lay out Japan's road to the Second World War.
