What direction do we need to go for our next maritime strategy? Using he recent article, Control of the Seas, as our starting point, our guest for the full hour will be Seth Cropsey, Senior Fellow and director of Hudson Institute's Center for American Seapower.
He served in government at the Defense Department as Assistant to the SECDEF Caspar Weinberger and then as Deputy Undersecretary of the Navy in the Reagan & Bush administrations, where he was responsible for the Navy’s position on efforts to reorganize DoD, development of the maritime strategy, the Navy’s academic institutions, naval special operations, and burden-sharing with NATO allies. In the Bush administration, Cropsey moved to OSD to become acting assistant secretary, and then principal deputy assistant SECDEF for Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict.
During the period that preceded the collapse of the USSR—from 1982 to 1984—Cropsey directed the editorial policy of the Voice of America on the Solidarity movement in Poland, Soviet treatment of dissidents, and other issues. Returning to public diplomacy in 2002 as director of the US government’s International Broadcasting Bureau, Cropsey supervised the agency as successful efforts were undertaken to increase radio and television broadcasting to the Muslim world.
Cropsey’s work in the private sector includes reporting for Fortune magazine & as a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and as director of the Heritage Foundation’s Asia Studies Center from 1991-94.
His articles have been published in the Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, Foreign Affairs, Commentary magazine, RealClear World, & others.
On May 31, 2014, SLENDERMAN went from fictional Internet meme to household word when two 12 year-old Wisconsin girls lured a friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times in an effort to earn the favor of the faceless, elongated, dark-suited figure. A few days later, an emotionally disturbed 13 year-old girl near Cincinnati attacked her mother with a knife in their kitchen in the guise of Slenderman.
These real life homages are all the more disturbing because the creation of the character is readily traceable to writer Eric "Victor Surge" Knudsen on the "Something Awful" Internet forum in 2009. But as the most powerful memes do, this one seeped into the very fiber of online culture to the extent that five years later young girls were willing to kill for it.
Interestingly, AMHRadio was ahead of the Slenderman Zeitgeist. On the March 11, 2014 episode with documentary filmmakers JOSH ZEMAN and RACHEL MILLS, whose urban legend films CROPSEY and KILLER LEGENDS expose the terrifying truths behind the myths, we discussed the the Slenderman meme, with Zeman uniquely declaring the character to be the very personification of the Internet.
Now Zeman and Mills return to discuss developments in the Slenderman saga and what may lie ahead.
Filmmakers Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio drop by to discuss "Cropsey," an intense and horrifying documentary exploring the evidence relating to four missing children who lived on Staten Island. It also investigates the urban legend behind Cropsey and the case against Andre Rand, the chief suspect in these awful crimes. Joshua wrote and co-directed this hauntingly atmospheric film with Barbara.
Joshua's other movie credits include "The Station Agent," "Mysterious Skin," and "Choking Man." Barbara is the Executive Deputy Commissioner of Public Information for the New York City's Department of Social Services
ROBERT P. GEORGE is McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University and a visiting professor at Harvard Law School. Called by the New York Times Magazine "This country's most influential conservative Christian thinker," his books include The Clash of Orthodoxies, What is Marriage?, and Embryo: A Defense of Human Life. His latest book is titled Conscience and Its Enemies: Confronting The Dogmas of Liberal Secularism. SETH CROPSEY is the former U.S. Deputy Undersecretary of the Navy, having served under four Secretaries of the Navy in the Reagan and Bush administrations. He also served as an officer in the United States Naval Reserve for nearly two decades. He is now Senior fellow at the Hudson Institute in Washington and a frequent contributor to The Weekly Standard, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and other publications.

On Sunday, 3/16 at 8pE, CHILLER debuts its new 2-hour special, KILLER LEGENDS. The horror documentary follows filmmakers Josh Zeman and Rachel Mills as they investigate the true crimes behind these urban legends while exploring how the myths evolved and why we continue to believe.
The documentary probes the following legends of:
The Candyman: Though the legend is prolific, in actuality there is only one documented case of a child dying from tainted candy: 8-year-old Timothy O’Bryan, who was poisoned on Halloween by a real-life miscreant who used the legend to hide his crime, earning him the fateful nickname.
The Baby-Sitter and the Man Upstairs: While the babysitter has become the go-to victim in so many horror films, does the same hold true in real life? Tragically, yes, as the filmmakers discover in unsolved case of Janett Christman, a babysitter slain in Columbia, MO, in 1950.
The Hookman: Based upon the legend of two teens lovers terrorized by a madman with a hook for a hand, filmmakers investigate the case of a killer known as The Phantom, who in 1946 attacked five couples parked on lovers’ lanes in Texarkana.
The Killer Clown: The filmmakers investigate “phantom clown” scares that have spontaneously occurred since the 1980s. As the duo explores Chicago’s creepy clown past, from John Wayne Gacy to Bozo, they attempt to answer the question of how clowns became so evil, and why they continue to haunt our nightmares.
Joshua Zeman has been creating independent films for over 10 years. His critically-acclaimed horror documentary CROPSEY, was critic’s pick with The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Roger Ebert, and was “one of the scariest films of the year” in 2010.

Today is day 4 of 40 days of purpose in finding out why i feel the way i do? Why i am struggling with the things I struggle with? Why i think the way I do? Really digging deep, well tonight after surfing and really making something out of nothing in the ocean today in Surf City...I cried out to the Lord and he answered and said why are you looking down? I said wow i surely was, always at the ground sometimes looking up, missing so much and being so oppressed by trials and tribulation and when I looked up I was amazed at what i saw in living color. The Lord reminded me of the scripture Colossians 3:2 'Keep your mind on things above, and not on worldy things" and I was so encouraged and then reminded again about my Pastor Peter Cropsey from First Love Church in Costa Mesa speaking on the scripture regarding John the Baptist being imprisoned and sending his disciples to Jesus asking Him "are you the one?" This after baptising Jesus in the Jordan and all. Jesus reminded the men to focus on the things he did and not the situation John found Himself in. This really spoke to me and I pray to you tonight.
It is all around us; from poor program decisions to significant budgetary stresses that are only recently starting to bite - the large US Navy Fleet straddling the globe is contracting.
What are the initial, second & third order effects of the decreasing presence of the US Navy. Is it permanent, relative, or can fewer numbers be made up in other ways?
Join Sal from CDR Salamander and EagleOne of EagleSpeak in a wide ranging discussion along with their guest Seth Cropsey, Senior Fellow from The Hudson Institute and author of the new book, Mayday: The Decline of American Naval Supremacy..
