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

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.

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.

Today on The Doug Collins Podcast, I take a deep dive into the final address to the country by President Harry Truman.  Truman was a simple man who as even a biographer put it was an Accidental President.  However, he made the most of the moment and taught us all about leadership and how the Buck always stops at the top.  This is a refreshing look at leadership especially in these days with the Biden administration always looking to blame someone else.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Like with Germany, Korea was divided into occupation zones after World War II. The Soviets helped establish communism in the North, while the US supported the South. By June of 1950 fighting along the border had been going on for months. However on the weekend of June 24th, bulletins increased and it became clear a major crisis was underway. After a UN Security Council meeting President Truman‘s motion to send troops was approved. Less than five years after the end of World War II, the U.S. was back at war. That August the manager of a Montana semi-pro baseball team took color film of two UFOs flying over Great Falls. The next year, several V-Shaped formations were spotted flying over Lubbock, Texas. Witnesses included professors and students from Texas Tech University.Then in the summer of 1952 some of the most famous UFO sightings of the 20th Century occurred. In July, a series of sightings happened at three separate airports in Washington, D.C. Simultaneously in Norfolk, Virginia, Pan-American pilots saw eight large, glowing red objects.The sightings made front-page headlines around the nation, and led to the formation of a CIA Panel. Ten days later, two US Air force Colonels saw three unusual aircrafts flying in formation over Carson Sink, Nevada. And perhaps most sensationally, in Flatwoods, West Virginia on September 12th, six local boys and a woman reported seeing a UFO land and a spade-headed creature near the landing site. It was met with considerable skepticism.

You know, listeners, you don't want to hear about through the miss of time with an old hey everyone, an old man's talking should be the alternate name for this podcast. Anyway, right with the podcast that tries to an hundred things. John's got a list of things, I've got a list of things. I'm going to talk us through the film. John's gonna add some funny bits and we're gonna go from there. Happy to go, Big Fella, I'm happy brilliant stuff. Okay, so we start with Mirrormax and dimension films. Now, we did to mension films before, didn't we? So we're not gonna do it again. But I've certainly can tell you a little bit about mirrormax films. Their first film was good year, called Rock Show, Paul McCartney and Wings Concert Film. Jesus, who are Mirrormax Youn? Only the distributor paramount could have been right. Now this year Mirrormax, and this blew me away, have got a fletch film coming out. Remember fletch ship? Yeah, but it's John Hamm. I mean I loved John Hamm. Jesus, he makes some ship decisions. to WHO's standing for fletching? Two, like there's surely nobody going. Do you know what film I really liked? Fletch lives. I dug him wrong. I loved him, but I can you recreate that? Can? You wouldn't have thought so, mate. You wouldn't have thought anything for money. We open with this really angry coach, that always brilliant Robert Patrick, and again he's in on this and he he knows what a kind of film he's in. He screaming, scimming Blue Eyes. Yeah, absolutely, he doesn't look much older here and we're what six years on, seven years on from judge mcday? Yeah, absolutely screaming at his team and stand his quarterback and it's proper heart attack behavior, this, isn't it? Yeah, did you catch the song in the background? Oh God, no, I was.

Um Again, listeners, if you want to see Colin Robinson walking all over the laptop, my notes, yeah, then you're gonna need to making techniques. Yeah, yeah, so they were. They were huge chill children at the time and a great zone. Yeah, there were a green deal of time. Yeah, yeah, arguably better anyway. So what's the what? What's the next song? That that got you going? As soon as I heard the REF coming in, I'm like what they're doing? I see right, yeah, we'll come to that. Yeah, we will come to that. Yeah, that fucked with me. You know what I'm talking about? Yeah, yeah, yeah, and he's approached by this unseen character. He's like, what do you want? And we fade out. That night there's a meeting of staff. There's no money for Ms Brummel. Miss Brummels just about million years old, the Blair which, no money for her computers, no money for Mr Take's trip to NYC. Now, Mr Take, the actor that played Mr Tate, we have seen in a number of things, but on this podcast he was the opposing COP chief two, Brian Cox's COP chief. Yeah, yeah, Johnny chimpo brilliant in this as well. And again. I know I mentioned every time the bad guy in masters of illusion. Oh God, yeah, yeah, yeah, I forgot about that. Actually, yeah, that's who's WHO's the WHO's the good guy? WHO's the good magician in that? Scott Bacula, is it? Is it a master of illusion? I'm making that. Yeah, as long as it's no masters universe. That's no, that's a very but the bad guy, that's skeletor it's friend. Yeah, anyway. Um, and they can't get this money. He wants stay to New York and Mrs Olsen wants to do a mute Zical, but there's no money, because I'm sure the football team will get get their kit. Yeah, and she's like they will get whatever town. You've seen what it's like on a Friday night here. Principal Drake, maybe new with by the way, you know who she is. Big Fan of cheers Lilith. Yeah, brilliant, Foxy Ist. fucking this, by the way. Yeah, appeal, complained and no, does it for me, mate, does it? Does it for me? Your Scotty, she's got to do it for you and she's my hands are tied. So No, guys and dolls. Use last year's set from our town. Now a couple of things. Guys and dolls. It was a nineteen fifty Broadway show by Frank Losser. It won the Tony that year and got a film version in nineteen in Frank soon after Marlon Brando and Gene Simmons, not the sticking out yeah, sticking out face makeup love gun one. Obviously, the famous song that we all know from it, of course, is guys and dolls were just a bunch of crazy guys and dolls. It's not. It's an episode of the Simpsons, but you get the idea. Just the joke here is, by the way, using the set from our town. Our town famously doesn't have a set, and kind of budge the joke, you know. Yeah, I liked that. I liked it. Yeah, it's good, isn't it? Yeah, and there's a lot of kind of there's a lot of funny little bits in this. I think this is probably going to be quite a long episode because I think we both love this, didn't we? Yeah, I think it's aged brilliantly well, except for some of the CG which will come to they're leaving. She says she's forgot her keys and she needs to go back into the darkened school because all the lights are off and you can't put lights back on. Apparently. Oh yeah, that's that's a rule. Yeah, she figured she she goes into her office, gets the keys and coach Willis Robert Patrick's there. He won't let it leave without a pencil. It's like, you look really pretty and I really want to borrow a pencil. Yeah, okay, and do you know what, here's your pencil. Why don't you and your pens are going to sleep it off. And what does he do? Text through her hand. Plunges it right through her hand. I looked this up. Good, I'm glad you did, because, well, just to see if I was looking at and since we're people, put pencils through hands. The only thing I can find recently, because there was an an eight year old in California's hospitalized after a billy stabbed a pencil through his knee. She that's that's just the idea of broken knees and ship is no good. I would not be a good mob enforce I couldn't find any. What all I found was bloody assholes doing magic tricks on Youtube, and I stand by this. It's not magic if you could edit a video. Yeah, to Piss off. Yeah, you need to see it in the flash if you did bud upon but what I thought was, and again for the video, this works like there's bones there, there's like there's a is there a? Yeah, yeah, there's Ale. Yeah, all right, fucking Jesus God. Yeah, alright, in the hands and fenails. And it's a good effect though, this putty hand. I liked it. She needs him in the plums and runs for it. Finds the door chained. Where is the door? The doors chained out of nowhere, and you kind of like, I don't know how's that happened, and we can kind of guess in a moment or two. She knocks coach the ground and escapes the set of scissors once again, finds that she's keyless. She's fucking useless. She makes it out and locks coaching, losing the scissors. Ms Olsen picks them up and stabs at the death of them. Is fucking slow motion. What's wrong with the face thing, Pretty Graham? Yeah, now this massive long opening scene. You had an issue with the music. Yes, what's the crack? I just there's bad enough for we're trying to get pink floyd to put music on streaming media and stuff like that. They can. They completely take a cracking song like breaking the wall and just ref it and just and get other people to sing. Don't they like it? Leave it alone. It's a perfect piece of music. Yet, Hey, class of ninety nine, leave that song along, that song on your class of night in night. John. I'm looking at it because I didn't write it down. So what's the point? Short term, American alternate rock Super Group, Super Group bunny ears, inverted commas right, consisting of members of notable rock bands. Okay, and there's a couple of notable rock bands here and some ship Lane Staley of Alice in change, I don't know, Tom Morrello, raged against some machine. You know him, Stephen Perkins, Anthony to his mates from Jay's addiction, Martin Lynn, noble novel, from the Novel Porno for Pyros, I don't know, and Matt Serlick, from one of Rachel's favorite bands, matchbox twenty. Water load of fucking bollocks they are. And that is it. They got together for that, just giving rap. Yeah, and in fact it's so good, such a good song, John. I'm gonnaice to get some facts about it. Another brick and all. Part two is the one that we know of the three parts, written as a protest song against corporate punishment, which was out ard in state schools in the UK, nine six and private schools in which explains so much of what is wrong with our current government. Yeah, it was number one in deep breath, Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Portugals said it again, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, USA, and sold four million copies worldwide. Not Too Shabby. That's that's physical copies. Yeah, well, yeah, yeah, would have all been physical copies, but none of this streaming bollocks here. Mate. So it was three part of composition by Pink Floyd from nineties, seventy nine, and it was classed as a rock opera. Yeah, I love that. Have you? Have you seen another brick in the what have you seen? Is it another brick in the world the film? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, horrifying stuff. It really was going to back in the day. I love that. Scary, scary Shite. A little bit of background on this school, by the way. Harrington high not real. Herrington as a town also not real. Filmed in western Lockhart, Texas, which is known as the barbecue capital of Texas, which I assume that's the next town along from Cowboyville and ship larger county. Probably definitely come at me, Texans, because you wear those healed boots, don't you either, Go Ching, Ching Ching everywhere you walk, sports pose, Tottingham Hotspurs. Yeah, but I like the fact that it's not a real place. Yep, right, this bit we go through here with with the kids. You kind of meet them all and you get their names, which is brilliant if you're doing a podcast about this, because he gets it right down who they are. Number one is Zeke Josh Hartnett and written in his Mustang, and I'm fucking wrong. I know it's not a Mustang. Now I've written it down, but nice one, pacy, I mean Casey Elijah. Would he gets rammed at this post ball's first Danny. Yeah, it's kind of like Shit. That is pretty nasty. testical trauma is a great name for a band. Is when testicles are hurt by force, the cover gets torn or shattered and blood can leak into the scrotum until it becomes tense, which can lead to infection. God, just don't keep seeing it. Stop saying testical trauma. This Delilah, my least favorite character this whole yes, yes, Georgana bet brewster, right, good looking lassie, which is on about these stay Lorder lips take seventy two hours to apply. Could not find anything state Lawder Lips, by the way. However, I did find out State Lawder was found in New York City by the woman of the same name. She was the only female to feature in the twenty most influential business geniuses of the twentieth century, as published by Time magazine. What. Yeah, so everybody else? That's amazing. Probably trump was in that. I assumed so. And she she was a sister. In the fast few days, didn't she state Lauder fucking else, she did Jordans in front of all my bowels. Of all you're paying friends, and that's the thing, John, nothing about paying. But you know she was the sister because, as we noticed, all about firmly ward, firmly, this leaders a Zi family and respect. Get my pub stand is the quarterback that we saw before and Delilah's boyfriend. Yeah, stokely clear devalt go, kind of bit bit goth kids. You know, like really low budget out of the fact of the craft. Yes, yeah, I always forget her name and listeners are screaming boys in water boys. She isn't water boy. Yeah, and that Nicholas Cage Um port of call, you know, the Fred Lieutenant bad lieutenant potkole rotten, absolute piece of ship, that film. Anyway. Elijah Wood was the first person, apparently, to cross Niagara Falls by rope as part of an adrenaline challenge. Went. Don't ask. Josh Hartnett turned down the following rolls. whoever. This kid's brilliant spider man, Super Man and Batman. Do you know what he didn't turn down, though? A film about a haircutting competition in Keith Lee, West Yorkshire. I think it's called blow dry or blow job or something. Seriously, yeah, Alan Rickman's Dad Jesus because, yeah, yeah, when we do a Yorkshire Month we'll do that. Cleared about is named after the last volume in author Lawrence de Moles, the Alexandria Quartet novels. I don't know what they are. I didn't look into them, I was busy looking at the other books. Jordana Brewster, the faculty was the first film yet know what facts, but sorry, mate. Yeah, we've got to get that, we've got to get right. And then there's this new kid, Mary Beth something, something, something's got about seven hundred names and she yeah, yeah, God, and a new kid. I've got a clue. KLEX Klan Sense Zeke, selling fake ID of the brother from that seventies show. Yeah, yeah, I was. I was looking up by misdemeanors or possession of fake ideas in America, Da up to one year's jail term, summary Probation, community service and or money toor finds up to you a thousand dollars. They'll put you in prison for fucking out, won't they? Because it's a business loving, loving. I smoked cigarettes and then everything, just sitting there smoking, just getting it on. So I'll double checked this as well, because I was unsure to this. Remember that you used to be able to smoke around about hospitals, and then he stopped all that. Yes, apparently it was the same in schools. Adults could smoke in around schools and then my support portion of the districts prohibited it from the short of phased out from sixte Al Right. Well, it was the same sort of idea, because I was. I was always wondered that. I was like, I don't actually they smoke rear schools, but apparently not. You could. You could smoke in our school staff room when I was a kid. I think it's just must be the American ones, because it just comes. So you can't smoke. You text many guns in as you want. Yeah, yeah, you have to, you can. Need to protect us over the smokers. I'm gonna Kill Cancer, I'm gonna Kill Cancer, I'm going to shoot it in the fucking face. And basically all the kids in the background are absolute pricks, all fighting, arguing, these lasses, crashing the car. And we learned that Zeke is selling this stuff. He's throwing in this drug, isn't he? Inside? Yeah, Scat, he calls it, which makes anything else any other name other than like ship. Yeah, go on, anything else. But they were in Blue Biros. In fact, I'm waving at the screen now, a green one and a black one, blue one big crystal, which I'm using to keep track of. The hanks introduced nine and in two thousand and six they sold their hundred billion. One Jesus crazy that the best selling pen in the world and the Manhattan Museum of Modern Art has made it a permanent fixture because this fuck all else going on. And I guess there are six types of point with eighteen coors. There you go. And, as I say, Black Green, I think that might be. That's a purple one. It's not a blue one anyway. But using all my wife's good pens, kicking off right in the faculty room, there's this teacher, Harry Ah and you we're gonna me all the teachers as we go on, all the faculty, and I'll kind of cover them when we cover them, but Harry was one that I was particularly interesting. Did you recognize this guy? Is that? Is that the guy with the Gender Big Fat Guy? Yeah, so it was. I felt it was a film critic when he well, yeah, kind of. Yeah, Harry Knowles, he's called. So he was. He was in the Austin Film Critic Association and you go and kicked it for sexual harassment and correct. Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, AIn'tick. Cool news was his website and yeah, he got he got kicked out for assault, sexually assaulting Jasmine Baker in two thousand at the Alamo drafthouse in Austin. Apparently he was also very easily bought by studios for reviews around about the timing of this. So I can't help thinking he might have been given this role, not speaking role, for that to bump up. Yeah, absolutely, if I don't think you needed it, and it's a lot of fun. Yeah, it was. Then a couple of things and it was like he's an alien in Phantom menace as well. Apparently, apparently he's talking the nurse. The nurse is sick, Salmahayak war. Yeah, I love the way you looked into the living room there and make sure Kirsty wasn't hearing you talk about Salmahayak. So, yeah, the she says because she's full of full of cold, and if you're sick, why don't you take take a day off? It's just I'm saving all my sick days for when I feel better. We've all been there. That's a good show. So she's trying to quiet. She's doing a ship job. Sick days. John, would you believe in America, in the in in jobs and work in America, the average for an American worker in the private sector is seven six days a year, just seven, which is astonishing. It starts in the first year at seven and it builds up, which is astonishing, astonishing, astonishing, and the reason that is so astonishing is I get I get six months paid, six months unpaid, and I've only been in my job. When you're going to use all that tomorrow. So all that, we kind of meet all these staff, I like the science teacher who's basically trying to chat up sell Ma hi, ex nurse, isn't it? And then he's a line is. Well, I might as well put a penny in my eye, which is this brilliant kind of foreshadowing of what's going to happen to again. Oh, he was John John Stewart of the whatever the American things called that. I don't think I'll watch a lot of we didn't really get it over it, did we? No, did you? Did you catching the NEMES character? Yes, but it's later on. Go for it, and I was asking. All right, yes, yes, I did. Yes, so he is. She's a nurse, Harper, you put me on the spot here, Lad Edward. All right, Edward, Edward Furlong, Edward like that, Edward Furlong. Yeah, that Edward for a long who's been clean for four years, by the way. That's enough factor throwing. But I just read Edward for long has been has been clean for the last four years. Okay, result, yeah, exactly, but jild actor going wrong, and that's actor actor inverted. Commas so, Ms Olsen comes in looking less dowdy. Her and coach are drinking all the water in the class. We've got MS Burke, Fam Ka Jansen. We only we only looked at two weeks ago and she's very different in this, isn't she nervous? Dowdy, nobody, confident. No, talking about Robinson crusoe and she said what was crusoe most afraid of? And he says callous is she said, well, no, it was the isolation. Robinson crusoe is obviously everybody's favorite dilute injuice book by Daniel don't call me Willem Dafoe from sevent and a castaway that spends twenty eight years on a remote island without a volleyball called Wilson. Well, that means cry at least seventeen for that ball. He's rude, he's a smart ass. They claim that. You know, Stan tells Delilah that that he's quitting the team and she's worried he's throwing away his chance at a scholarship. But also she's more worried that she's head cheerleader. He's the quarterback and them's the rules. You can't break, break the rules of high school. DICKHEAD. Yeah, he's a load of things as well, that boy. He's been in launce. I didn't recognize him out of a thing it was. I'm sure he was in a wheezer video. Al Right, okay, well, what him and Fonzie? A little respect? I'm sure it was that. A little respect, all right, okay, Alright, oh, he's maybe it's maybe, maybe he's in that, that loser film. You know that they did spurt bag for maybe that with the guy that fucked the pie and the lassie that got the rose petals on the tits, Dana Kroyd. Thanks to Joshin Amanda Wilson for in forming me that the FBS, who are the governing body of schools colleges, allows eighty five scholarships each year for sports. Sorry, for football it's not many, not many, so thanks very much for that. That's how I would have got my education. Yeah, yeah, but we don't need no education. Mr Take Daniel von Bergen. As we said, super troopers really boring history lesson drinking boost from this Cup, isn't he? Yeah, and stand Correctis as you want to be. On chapter five, Mary Beth approaches Stokes Lee at break. She's Reading Double Star by Robert Heinlan. Robert Heinland was a sci Fi writer. He wrote starship troopers. Previous episode won four Hugo Awards for double stance, starship troopers, stranger in strange land, which is the only one of his I've read, and the moon is a harsh mistress, and then I get that one by the rest or just Martin is reel. Okay. Delilah comes along and basically says don't, don't hang around with stokes lead because she's wearing different shades of black and calls her a violent lesbian, so which stokes stokes storms off. Basically she's a piece of ship. She goes from being a piece of ship to being a piece of ship to then not being a character. Yes, you're pointless, absolutely pointless. Casey's eating lunch alone on the bleachers and finds this insect pod's approached by the coach Um and he says, have you ever considered trying out? He says I don't think a person should run unless he's being chastede. It's a great line. And then there is for shadowing. He's not happy about running. He doesn't think anyone should run, but he's quite happy to walk to fucking more door. He really has it. Walks at pistol, he walks at Pacy, I mean Casey. He does like Harold from neighbors in the science class. Casey approaches Mr Edward Furlong with the pod. Well Stokes, he tells Mary, but she's not gay. She just doesn't like people and that's her way of keeping because in apparently people didn't want to anger out anybody. This pod look like fucking Cocuna out of pokemon. What's going on there? Furlong suggests it could be a new species. And then they spill a bit of water on it and it comes back to life. Put it in this aquarium and it grows these tendrils. Done it and as he's about to kind of put his finger and it reproduces and when he gets his finger near it, this massive teeth, like C G I teeth, didn't look great and bit him at the pool. STANTELL's coaches quitting. A coach who has gone from basically up fucking here. At the start of the movie he's just like well, you know, you're just gonna do what you're gonna do. I can't I can't do anything about that. You're telling me this the day before, you know, this the day of my daughter's wedding. And Yeah, he just basically lets him get on with it and stand saves Casey from usher in the locker room. Yeah, exactly. I mean I think he's maybe in a couple of other films as as she got like twenty kids or something. I'm sure that's the thing I heard once. I didn't do any looking into rusher. I've done all my looking into everybody else, but yeah, I'm sure I think you've got about twenty kids. Jesus here must be he was ushered. He goes into he heads into the shower. I noticed he'd got some soap on a rope. It's kind of kind of it. I haven't seen soap in the rope for ages still widely available, but in two thousand and nine the Catholic Church stopped companies selling soap on a rope or, as it was known, as pope on a rope, because Holy Father only wants his facing under age genitals. I mean might not be true. Are you liking these Catholic Church jokes? Listeners for you? Are we getting canceled? Yeah, we might be. When he's in the shower, here comes Mrs Brummel with like a Meltie face, a face like one of the aliens out of they live, and she's just going they want everyone. I can't breathe, I can't breathe. And he grabs her like, hugs her, and scalp comes away in his hand just it slops all the folio. Fantastic. Olsen explains she has cancer, because cancer makes your scalp come away from your head. And at Zeke's car he's selling this vhs of Nev Campbell and Jennifer Love Hewittt fully frontal naked. Now, of course, me being me, I had to have a little bit of a look to find out what that could be. The only thing Nev Campbell and Jennifer love Hewett have been in together. It's part of five. No Fall Front. No Fall Front, only party of five. Certainly not in the first two series I watched there wasn't. He didn't feel front of Nive Campbell. And was it world things? No, Denise Richards. You got to see her. She did for them to everybody was getting to see that. Absolutely money well spent. Ye, Delilah and Casey are in the Faculty Lounge Looking for Goss for the school paper. He says you could be a cool human when you're not being a grade a bitch. Okay, and she's like are you hitting on me? Not, everyone's fucking hitting on your doll, Olsen and the coach. They come back. Casey and Delilah locked themselves in the cupboard. Brummel died because she was too old. Almost the full faculty have now been commuted. I just thought it's so good. Here's nurse Harper. She's still sick, so we know that something wrong with her. They grab her, knock at the ground and spit this bug into her. He was like in the cupboard. The kids find brummels corps and then burst out. Not Robert Patrick and this stunt double. It was blatantly Robert Patrick. Then up to the ground and this old lady stunt double up to the ground. They're running away. Casey slips over and Delilah keeps on running because obviously she's she can be pretty cool when she's not being a grade a coward. So that night the cops, case and his parents are looking for the body. Now, did you spot this nineties power suit the dad was where? Casey's Dad was wearing shoulder pads like him? Okay, I think I think he thought he was in swingers. I think he thought he was in swing but no, deditly not. They go in with the cops and they find resuscitation Annie in the closet, this thing that I've never had to use because I don't think we ever did this at school. Don't know if you do. I think we did it in first in but yeah, never, never in school. Yeah, resuscitation Annie, developed by Norwegian toymaker Asmund lateral and Peter Safer. Good, yeah, and absolutely freaky looking fucking thing. They explain that that they also hurt the nurse and said no, we didn't. She's epileptic and she suffers from Grand Maus. Grand Maus are seizures the last only a matter of minutes but can be so severe they cause a victim to harm themselves during today they're known as tonic clonic seizures, which I think sounds like something you clean your asshole out with. I know it as an im a, actually stealing off me. What about cleaning your asshole out as well? Okay, the parents take him home after drake has taken this cop into the office and he comes out like subtly changed a hunt of a wink, as if, yeah, Alien Wink. They get him home. They said no phone, no int ripping out this physical mode. Yeah, musical music. So it is getting blast and she's got the porno under the bed, the Hump, the phone, Humph, and it was boobs magazine, not a real magazine, but just got a lot of Ms Bok A. You. Yeah, but then he's got a print, and then he's got to retaining print. Yeah, I never seen that, my laef. No, I had no idea. And then for some reason he does something and he's got this walking like what was that about? Like this walking Meccanno animal thing didn't make any sense. And then he jumps out the window. He spots the faculty as and then slips off this fucking Verandam thing and his dad calls him in, but the faculty aren't there. You know, his dad was still holding NIMBIMBS, was he? Yeah, he was. Then we see the kind of the blind coming down and it's the outline of one of the teachers, isn't it one of the faculty? or so they're going to get mom and dad the next day as they drop him off, as dad drops him off at school, Dad and culture talking, Delilah Grabs Casey. She's got glasses on and her hair tied up. Yeah, and commit a call. Exactly who she's hardly Martin landow in, that mission, impossible TV show, and he's again a reference for fucking nobody. that. Yeah, we know. Sunday morning, sixties TV in the faculty lines. are going through all this water and not drinking coffee anymore and your man's off the booze. Maybe that's what I maybe that's I've stopped drinking booze because I'm an alien. I will be doing a lot more fucking better stuff with my time than this fucking you know you've been probing left, Rinde, center. Stan tells stokes that he's quit. The team explains that he got an a on biology instead of a d because of his winning arm, because he had a good arm. Stokes, he's been watching him, following, following him, and he says I want to be a D student. I deserve that D I love the D is not quite what he says. Mr Take says he wants to live in history of the family. UH, stands like, is this going to be on the test? And it's just this line of this isn't the test. Brilliant, fantastic character. There's a cure. Kids waiting for Ers here exam in a class and the police are helping. So it's all starting to look a little bit shady. Now zeke spots that there's a couple who were scrapping previously. The LAD's chill to fuck. She's like shouting at him, screaming at him. Do you know how his lad was? I remember his face and like I know that guy was in their scream movies. Hang what was a parody of it, a scary movie. Get a movie. He was a boyfriend in the first one that shot her. What these two boys are back for some scat. They want all he's got and he gives them a load, but they keep asking. They're blating the aliens. Yeah, have you got any more in your car? Have you got any more at home? So he keeps put some in his pocket. Ms Burke's now dressed like she's going to a fucking cocktail party right. She plays three characters in this. She played he's the Mousey one. She plays shouty, Screamy, fucking nutty teacher here as the alien. She calls him a diculous excuse for a little boy and storms off. Yep Um when he tries to offer a chocolate flavored laxatives, which is the last thing I need, and some Cherry Johnny's. Yeah, magnums, weren't he there were. Yeah, so I'll look this up because I thought Magnum was to do with the size it, but no, it's it's I think that Americans think Magnum's apparently the size, but it's the same lengths and standards. circumferences are normal journey. So I don't really understand why either go or is that magnums, because it's pretty much the same size as standard johnny bags. I tend to always put magnums on my p I. Robert Homden. Yeah, if you wanted John You could indeed by twenty more Cherry Johnny's five pounds. THIRD FROM CONDOM OUTLET DOT COM. How do we know there are more cherries? May I am not buying Johnny from Condom Outlet Dot Com. Nope. Casey explains to Stokes Lee what's going on and she said it sounds like pod people from the body snatches. Body snatches are rip off from the Puppet Masters, from Robert Heinlein. Which one is your body snatchers film, John Leland? Okay, yeah, I think that was the scariest. The dog with the person's face was just freaking yeah, yeah, yeah, just the end, the fact that it's kind of like fuck, yeah, yeah, he just points at her. screeture noises horrific, don't I mean, I'm sure I will watch it again at some point, but I saw that probably as a teenager, scared the shit that. I prefer the fifties one. Yeah, where at the end he looks in the he looks in the wagon and it's these prop pods. I love that and that's that's so cute. Writer. Today standards, it was, even though it was the subject was quite horrephic. It was quite quite felt quite hormly in the it. This, this bit ripped my fucking knitting. By the way, Casey explains he thinks film directors are aliens setting us up for a proper invasion. Spielberg's Et and son and felds get shorty, I'm sorry, I mean men in black, and I'm kind of like yeah, okay, I get it. That Robert Rodriguez. He's kind of going, I'm a director, I'm talking about film directors. Give me a fucking dump truck full of cash to make more of these. No, don't totally tot when he was seen, the whole gang head to science class to see the creature is now gone. Casey explains his theory on Aliens. Zeke and Mary Beth head to this the labs oars, which is the next room across which is where he gets his stuff for SCAT, and they're about to snug to garbagees medication, which I know that song very, very well. Off Two point oh to the garbage album of the same year. It's not a single. I thought it was number one in the UK and Iceland album but nowhere else. That's a great album. It's their teacher comes in and yeah, John Stewart comes in, but not before Zeke's come in trying to make a tweat of himself, pretending like or whatever. They've heard, and Casey explains that you think that that the that they're aliens. He attacks them Zeke's rips off this fucking this blade yellow teen things, slices off his fingers, which looks great for a second and then you see the fingers crawling across the floor. Ray Harry housings crying, and then they smash him in the eye with the with the I've written, shot penning shot nail, which basically melts his face. Yes, and again it's back to what he says. I might as well stick a penny in my eye or yeah, it was coming. This is a bit of Stokes, he said. Isn't this a bit where someone says, let's get out here and stand, let's get out of here. Casey grabs the weak Acuna thing and they had for the car. Everyone's acting calm and weird and scary as they kind of head out. Yeah, they get out of dodge in the car. There's nothing on the radio and like a police roadblock, isn't there? That they speed away from. was just leading shimming show. It was a little bit like show white beetle. They get to his place. He's got an apothecary in the garage like something he's turning fucking leading a gold or something, an episode of friends. He's rich and a prick and he's been grinding up caffeine pills for I took a lot of pro plus in college. I think everybody did. Forward when it we're coffee, just for that extra kick, that's right. Yeah, just because you've done a full out of college and you're going out that night. Yeah, there isn't any touch things is an energies just wasn't red from you. If you were lucky, you got Lucas aid sport, because it's ISOTONIC. We find out that he owns a gun, which is basically Chekhov's gun maybe, and he cuts a bit off the pod and puts it in with Oscar, that wait mace. It takes over the poor thing and he wrings its neck. He could to play three blind maze, lay down and wait again, which is monthy python reference for nobody. He cuts it open to find that it's a dried out the little mouse, and he empties a penn of scat onto this rest in this pod that melts like salt on a slug. stokesly explains you've got to get the master and that will free everyone else, because school kids are fucking geniuses. Yes, they're basically figuring out that the alien people are emotionless, the puppets. It's a puppet master. They argue amongst one another. Any one of them could be an alien. Zeke solution is for them to snort a Byro. So there's obviously homost the other thing, yes, one like that scene. It's not a homage. It's fucking robbed, robbed off this thing, isn't it? Yeah, I went to school with and I do put by rows up his nose. He lays tarmac for a living now, so really just old it. Casey takes it and starts giggling, because caffeine bills do that. Oh No, it's great cackle. As little radio flyer stand grabs the gun and threatened Zeke, who takes it and stand does the same stokes. He says I'm not putting up that on my nose. Zeke says aliens are taking over. Weigh it up. It's quite a good lie actually. Delilah and Marybeth in the last two, and they won't do it. Mary Beth claims to BE ALLERGIC TO ASPIRIN. There's no aspirin in that. She does it, tips her head back and snorts. Delilah doesn't, and we get to see her with all these crawley things which look good. Casey grabs the gun but won't shoot her. stokesly does missus, and Delilah basically smashes up this drugloud throwing herself about. She's forgotten out to walk, and then she jumps in the waiting school learning car being driven by Mr Tate. What's going on? It's like as if there have been the speaking teachers. Hi've mimed, of course. So they head back to the school, which is Friday Night Lights. It's huge crowd at the game, with the Fart Rock version of another brick in the walls. Back as far as the team goes, they're called the Hornets. A spot. They were called the Hornets. There's only one or Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte Hornets, yeah, yeah, that's good to basketball. Hornets are the largest of the wasps and massive fucking assholes. The Asian giant Hornet stings cause thirty to fifty deaths annually in Japan. Would, yeah, would you believe it? And of course all American football teams have got stupid names. So, John, with that in mind, I want you to tell me if the next seven ones that I mentioned are a football team or a ship ball team? All right, football team if it's real, shipball team if it's not. Didn't really figure out the title, so you know whatever. Number one, the Minnesota Golfers. A. The Minnesota Golfers. Oh, it's a team. A. Number two, the Maryland terrapins, not sty. So it's a real football team. Yes, correct, it's a real football team. Number three, the Chicago outfits. Shut correct, it's not real. I made that one up. Number four, the wake forest demon deacons, real fucking writers, one of their shirts. Number five, the Kingston Cong's. Oh God, not made. That's a good name. Get out getting glace. Get that team made. Number six, the Martha's vineyard seamen. You're right, Rad number seven, the South Carolina Game Cocks. It is. Yeah, the job about. And so when this is going on it's funnish to where you're talking about Hornets. I've I've picked up a wee think about bees, because we're saying killed the queen and everybody go back to normal. So I just for some reason looked out to queen bees and seeing what would happened to be killed a queen. Okay, so that's what I got. So, unfortunately, queenless Corny cannot survive or for a sustained paid and absolutely queen bee effects of behavior working the worker bees. They's become aggressive. Worker bees may continue to lay eggs, but because there's no queeny finalizing, they're all drones instead of workers. All Right, knew that, you scientists, obviously, but that's that sounds pretty cool, man. Well, look, no, cool, don't. Don't kill Queen Bees. Don't, don't. You don't kill any bees place. All through the game the team are putting bugs in the ears of the other team and the tackle. It's good. This better, like Robert Patrick's doing. Amazing facial word, brilliant and yeah, yeah, fantastic stuff, like Henry clearing the water boy whenever. Yeah, in the gym. Principal Drake's here, by the way, Principal Drake, that the first person approached me. Principal Drake, did you see? This was Gillian Anderson. Oh, good, yes, yeah, yeah, again, would have been a great choice. Yeah, I think they tire up because they're certain that she's the she's the queen in this badminton net. She needs to snort the thing that she's not going to do it. So she woke some Zeke shoots are between the eyes. Yeah, just that. Nowhere. BLAMO as cases about to stab her. She comes back to life and Mary Beth throws the whole case of spun. Yes, yes, I'm melting, melting world. What the world? Good affection? There's a lot of it Israel. Where was you? Throw? Well, why? Now he knows. He's seen the end of the film. Games over in the town's heading home. Stand heads out to get the coach because there's certain now it's going to be him. Stokes. He grabs, grabs him and snugs him before he goes because she doesn't want him to die. Having not done that. Outside in the rain, coaching, the players have got their mouths open, tendrils out to the rain. Looks Great. It's like a lightning strike and you see like the alien behind yeah, and that still looks amazing. It's a really good gift as well, so I'll have to do that when I'm posting about it. Stands back at the door. They throw him a Biro wonder and he empties it away. It's beautiful. There's no pain, no fear. Se Open the door. Zeke threatens him through the door with a gun. Mum, he explains that he's got Schumer left in his car on the land and that's the stuff out of sky. Rim stiff. They head out him and Casey threw through the lot full of school busses. I was going, look at all those school busses, loads school busses there. We haven't seen a school bus in something for ages and ages and ages. By the way, remember we used to see loads of loads of them in films and it's been a while since. Yeah, yeah, I think the last probably we've seen it was in a trip. Yeah, I think so. Bigger score bus manufacturer in the US is the R E V group. They earned two point four billion revenue per year. It's astonishing. It's amazing. You can, you can, fucking you can get a contract doing anything in America. Really can. Oh, I missed this, but you can reattach fingers a maximum twelve hours after they have been slashed off. Throw that in UM cases. The Decoy was a coach and the team, because he can run, that's and he gets caught on the bus wagons by Delilah and as the team start coming through the windows, he escapes out through this. Not only can he run, but he can also fucking jump. You can jump. I thought I was watching again. I thought home coming, as Zeke said, his car and he grabs the shaiser or whatever we're calling it. Miss what's her face? Comes back now, Ms Burke, and again she's still dressed in this gear and everything. Um, she said, I don't want Cherry condoms, but I do want something cherry flavored, and you're like wow, and I think they've kind of got around this by explaining earlier on in a throwaway comment, that he's had to stay back a year, like eighteen or nineteen. Makes Sense. He jumps in the car and she jumps in the back and as he peels away she's trying to worm his ear. He throws his seatbelt on and rams this bus. She is flying out the window. Now what doesn't happen when you fly out a window, John? You don't lose your hand, you don't get get capapitated. You don't get copapitated. That's right. Yeah, but she does. And another rep off of the thing. Very much so. Yeah, and it looks like fucking garbage because they don't have her talking or anything. They just have this. They don't even have her looking at him. The photograph of her face, isn't it? Photograph of the face going along, not even moving eyes, and just as she kind of finds the rest of the body, he's like, fuck this, I am out here. It was obviously that unimpressed with the effect. Exactly in the gym, Mary Beth and Stokes, they are talking in I know you're proud of being the outsider, but aren't you tired of being something you're not? I know I am. And then she gets all wavy arms and sucking licorice whips, because it turns out she's the massive squids. It turns out this huge fucking squid thing. She chases stokes Lee and the just arrived Casey into the pool. And she jumps into this pool and she's she's sacking super swimmer, like old Phelps, isn't she? The Queen Drags stokes the under the water, but Casey throws a rope and saves her. In the Locker Room, Z comes in, stokes. He calls out to him, but Mary Beth also calls out to him as Human Mary Beth, naked with the Nipples, naked with, yeah, with Photoshop Nipples, out answer me this. Why are you naked? It's q good he takes stokes as his side, but it turns out stokes he's got squid snogs it does. He locks her in this equipment cage. Casey's made to take some more of the fucking Skank by Zeke, who then gets thrown across the locker room and knocked out. Mary best calling after Casey, explaining her world was endless oceans till it dried up and she escaped. She wanted to make her very much like home, part of the same one feeling. One Mass Mary Beth becomes a true form and chases him into the gym. Now I love this because he sets this bleacher to retract and a great strategy and then nearly gets fucking caught himself. But it just so happens that he's a really strong athletic nerdy, so he kind of runs out just as it gets caught U he stabs her in the eye and she spits jazz written Jizz Tadpoles here in his face, which is who practical effics. YEA, they fall out. As she dies. He heads over at stokely she's alive, with some dead ones next to her, and we got one last jump scare. Zeke smashes on the batting cage. Do we really need that? Do we really need it? One month later? One month later, and just just because we're doing fucking show not tell. So we do tell, not show. In this we've got news reporter going. It's a month or since the and give you away. Zeke's on the team. Uh, and fucking we miss fucking Burke's watching from the bleach. Did he lay up that factual quickly? Yeah, what the fuck? And he's said and he gets put out that cigarette and get back on the team like that is surely that would surely get you fucking kids. Yeah, these reporters are doing a new story. Stokesle and scatter and stand a winching. It turns out Casey and Delilah a thing as well. And he is Time magazine Man of the year. I think. Sure have changed, haven't they? No, no, no, no, no, no, it's a bad old wasts song and nw to do. Yeah, man, time, man of the year night in ninety nine, John Jeff Bezos. What for? Taking Daddy's money? Probably, yeah, bad year. Yeah, bad indeed. What else have you got? That's that? Let's say that your neck and main left branch center. I was deleting them left her Queen B thing at the India. Oh, I'm sorry, mate, we need to get a bit better at this night at least. No, it's nous. Were just doing a thing. The facts are a harsh mistress. Oh No, I've got one thing, John, I've got one thing. Hang on, hang on, the car. Oh, yes, so you did. We both of the car. Sure as H Nineteen Seventy pointy act here, nice sexy machine and absolutely astonished. John, you didn't have the gun. I think we've covered a gun. It's not like you do not have the good one. We have, but it's a cult detective special. Yes, but there, there it is. I'm putting it on there, and it's only because I remember seeing that gun. So smashing Um Asian giant Hornet. We have done sick days. We've done replicating a numbals, snakes, sharks and commode or dragons have been known to birth without aid from males. Bacteria and cells are the only things that can replicate. No bother. No, there was horseplay written on the shower wall. No, horseplay. Horseplay is defined as rough, boisterous play. Horses rough and boisterous. I don't get that. No, that's a weird one. A couple of facts from the back of the making of the film, released Christmas Day night in the US, grossed forty point three million domestic and sixty three million worldwide, from a budget of just fifteen. Mel Zeke is the only character not to get infected throughout the film. Oh Yeah, Tommy Hill figure provided clothing for the film in exchange for the cast to feature in an advert. That's a good one. Well, they're all good ones, aren't they? If you don't know them. We've got outtown. We've got Jillian Anderson. Oh, the tattooed girl, Mary Beth Askeworth, the office is, is Robert Rodriguez Sister, Jessica Alba, was considered for Delilah, but she was too good an actor. I added that last bit.

We are taking a trip back to 2020 where our own Research Historian, Dr. Jason Dawsey had a discussion with Dr. Michael Neiberg, the inaugural Chair of War Studies in the Department of National Security and Strategy at the United States Army War College. This conversation commemorated the anniversary of The Potsdam conference, which started on July 17, 1945. Doctors Dawsey and Neiberg review how leaders, after the War, confronted the task of rebuilding a new international order.  Key parts of this wide-ranging conversation cover the rise of Bolshevism and fascism after 1919, the invention of the atomic bomb, and the emergence of the Cold War and how world leaders dealt with these major challenges.

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!

Live from the No Panic Zone—I'm Steve Gruber—I am America's Voice—God Bless America—God Bless You and let's do this! This is the Steve Gruber show— I am just an overgrown Zygote in search of humanity and leadership in a nation—that seems desperately in need of both—   Here are three big things you need to know right now—   ONE— General Motors is recalling hundreds of thousands of SUV's for repairs but the problem is—they don't have the parts to get them fixed—so that's a problem—   TWO— In San Francisco the woke crowd that claimed to need school funding to fight Covid—instead spent a half million dollars—to paint over a mural of George Washington—who is clearly too much for their weak hearts to handle— THREE— The Biden Crash is here—and it happened just as I told you it would—with the Presidents approval rating in a brand new national poll falling below 30%-- And the reason for the crash is very simple—Joe Biden's political vision is about as sharp as the vision of any 79-year old man—and as you can imagine—that's not too good—and in Joe's case—well it's far below average—he needs to get his political eyes checked— Joe Biden has never had good political instincts—nor has he been very smart—but he was a good choice for those that wanted to call the shots—I cannot even fathom how he was ever elected to any office—let alone the US Senate— But for those that wanted an easy target to manipulate—he was the man of their dreams—compromised in a variety of ways—BUT we will get to that another day soon— First the reality on the ground in the summer of 2022 in the most important nation in world history— The latest poll released on Monday by Civiqs, a left leaning liberal polling company—shows Joe Biden with a paltry 29% approval rating and a 58% disapproval rating—for an incredible 29 point deficit—a brand new New York Times poll—has Old Joe at 33% approve and 60% disapprove—a gap of just 27 points—and the Democrats are actually thinking they can win in this environment?  Spoiler alert: they can't! And they won't! In fact, more races are being put into the toss up category daily—and its not just that the left and socialism will lose in a remarkable landslide defeat—it will be the worst defeat for a party in power in a midterm election ever—it will restore America to the nation it was before the Great Depression and the Great Socialist takeover began led by the legendary leftist Franklin Roosevelt—a President who dismissed precedent—dared to threaten the Supreme Court in an unprecedented way to get his way—remember a switch in time saves 9— Yeah—todays leftists aren't the first to threaten packing the court to ram through their radical agenda—BUT they will be the last—Because America is all done with their insane demands—and foolish pursuits—like destroying American Energy—opening the border and flooding trillions into the economy—any of which could have been extremely dangerous BUT taken together could be lethal this experiment in self government— BUT the Supreme Court this past term—began to reclaim the Republic as it was intended—and the rejection of these demonstrably stupid ideas at the polls in November—will send this new Democrat Socialist Frankenstein—back to the failed political laboratories in which the monster was created— We don't care about the community organizers—or the teachers lounges—or the union bosses getting fat off the backs of the Middle Class—we are taking back America—and its at a point where you can feel it— The latest Civiqs Poll has Joe Biden all the way down at 29% and there is no recovery in sight— The assault on liberty that began when FDR took office in March of 1933 is over— The truth is—we all should have listened to Winston Churchill—but FDR—was much more enamored with Josef Stalin—and gave him half of Europe as a down payment on destroying America someday— And it almost worked—But for 2 men—Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump—they were the ones that stepped in at critical times—and bought us just enough time to right the ship and sail unapologetic into an American future— Far fetched? Prove me wrong- the fact is you cannot. FDR was weak on Russia and denied George Patton the chance to crush the whole RED Army in 1945—Truman blocked MacArthur from doing the same to Chinese Communist Party in 1953—well thankfully enough of us have read the Constitution, including 6 members of the Supreme Court and we are starting to correct decades of bad behavior on the inside— The Democrats or more accurately—the Communists parading as Democrats biggest mistake in 2020—is they got greedy—they over played their hand—and its all coming down now like the House of Cards I discussed here a couple of days ago— There is nothing that can save them now from their own bad deeds—from the choices they have made—and we will save this country together you and me— Will it be easy? No. Neither was the battle of Lexington or Concord—the days in July at Gettysburg—or the beaches of Normandy—BUT America prevailed—because we always do—we will shed the shackles of socialism before they can handcuff us—and we will prevail—trust me—we've got this— for a whole host of reasons—and NUMBER ONE IS FREEDOM

This episode tells the story of the the Vietnam War at sea, of the most intense air battles of the Cold War, of bombardments against the Vietnamese coastline, and the politics and history behind a war that was unpopular from day one and split the nation in two. Right after the end of World War Two, the Viet Minh, a communist-led anti imperialist party and army led by Ho Chi Minh claimed control of almost all of the country in the power vacuum immediately after the Japanese surrender. A year later, in 1946 the revived French government sent troops back to occupy its former colony of Vietnam and crushed Ho Chi Minh's new government, forcing his military to abandon the cities for the jungles, mountains, and countryside. Based on anticolonial principles the United States had initially opposed the French recolonization of Indochina but the victory of the communist just north of Vietnam in the Chinese civil war drove the Truman and Eisenhauer administrations to support the French in their war against the Viet Minh. The French were defeated, but we soon took their place. This is that story... IG/Twitter: @USNavyPodcast Email: usnavalhistorypodcast@gmail.com

https://astralcodexten.substack.com/p/your-book-review-the-outlier [This is one of the finalists in the 2022 book review contest. It's not by me - it's by an ACX reader who will remain anonymous until after voting is done, to prevent their identity from influencing your decisions. I'll be posting about one of these a week for several months. When you've read them all, I'll ask you to vote for a favorite, so remember which ones you liked - SA] I. I decided to read a 600-page book about Jimmy Carter because I was tired of only reading about the historical figures everyone already agrees are interesting. John Adams became an HBO miniseries. Hamilton became a Broadway show. The Power Broker and The Years of Lyndon Johnson became such status symbols that there was a whole pandemic meme about people ostentatiously displaying them in their Zoom backgrounds. But you never hear anyone bragging about their extensive knowledge of the Carter administration. Like most people under 70, I was more aware of Carter's post-presidency role as America's kindly old grandfather, pottering around holding his wife's hand and building Houses for Humanity. I mostly knew that he liked to wear sweaters, that he owned a peanut farm, and that he lost to Ronald Reagan. But I wondered what, if any, hidden depths lay within the peanut farmer. Also, I wanted to enter this contest, and I didn't want to pick a book that I thought a bunch of other people might also review. So I turned to The Outlier: The Unfinished Presidency of Jimmy Carter, by Kai Bird. Like Carter, this book seems to have been largely forgotten. It won a Pulitzer, but I had never heard of it until I googled “best book about Jimmy Carter.” It seems to have gotten a lot less attention than similar recent biographies about Grant, Roosevelt, and Truman, and it's hard to imagine it ever becoming a TV show or a musical. Carter was born in 1924 in Plains, Georgia, which, as you can tell from the name “Plains,” is very dull. His father was a successful farmer, which made his family wealthy by local standards. Almost every other Plains resident during Carter's childhood was an impoverished African-American, many of whom worked on the Carter farm, a fact that is often cited as the answer to the central mystery of Carter's childhood: how he grew up white in the Depression-era South without becoming a huge racist. It probably doesn't tell the whole story, though, as his siblings came out just about as racist as you'd expect.
