"Being in a ship is like being in a jail, with the chance of being drowned" – Samuel Johnson
For hundreds of years, the keeping of order and discipline aboard naval vessels was based around a delicate balance of privileges and punishment. Privileges included the daily distribution of alcoholic beverages such as grog (a mix of rum and water), while punishment included confinement (in prison barges or shackles aboard ship) and/or flogging. Given that life aboard a sailing ship was itself a form of confinement and imprisonment, the traditional means of maintaining discipline proved adequate during the Age of Fighting Sail. But the coming of the 19th century, and with it the revolutionary power of steam engines, completely change the character and demographic of enlisted sailors in the navies worldwide. Aboard the fighting ships of the U.S. Navy there were still rough men who performed primarily physical skills, but added to this were the first of a wave of technicians and mechanics. Nevertheless, these sailors still drank too much, fought and brawled, and periodically deserted their posts. It was for these men, the naval discipline afloat continued to be enforced.
And as the U.S. Navy expanded and contracted between 1850 in the 1930s, discipline afloat and punishment ashore also evolved. The first large U.S. Navy prisons were constructed, including the facility at the Portsmouth Naval Yard in New Hampshire, the largest such facility of its time. To learn more about the evolution and enforcement of discipline and punishment in the U.S. Navy between 1850 in the 1930s, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writeswtream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNIBooks) writer Rodney Watterson, author of the book Whips to Walls.
World War II was a truly global conflict, running 24/7 across every time zone. However, for all the attention given to it in history books, magazines, films and television, the European Theater of Operations was only a fraction of the size physically of the war being fought in the Pacific Theater. Encompassing almost half the world's landmass, the Pacific Theater necessarily had to be broken into pieces, and prosecuted by a number of separate commands and commanders. The South Pacific was just one big part of this effort, and yet had multiple commanders directing operations from Guadalcanal to Okinawa before the war ended. Some of the greatest names in American military history, commanded these operations including Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Adm. Chester Nimitz, Adm. William F. "Bull" Halsey, and Gen. "Howl'in Mad" Smith. Incredibly, the Allied victory over the Japanese was completed in just under four years from the attack on Pearl Harbor. But perhaps most amazing was that it was accomplished in spite of one of the worst collection of military egomaniacs and narcissists being in control of much of the drive towards Japan. Add to this the debilitating long-term effects of alcohol, smoking, and command stress, and is easy to see why so many of the top Allied military leaders died or fell by the wayside during the war.

Gresham (@greshmj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday at @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern.His guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author Alan Rems, the writer of SOUTH PACIFIC CALDRON, which tells the stories of the campaign in the South Pacific. His book provides readers a really transparent look at the battles and leaders on both sides in the South Pacific during World War II.
2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the end of the Cold War. Millions of men and women across the globe contributed to the end of the great East-West conflict of the 20th century, including a handful of national security specialists who helped shape policy and events. Some are well known, like Henry Kissinger, McGeorge Bundy, and Brent Schofield. Others however, served in relative obscurity, contributing their intellect and lives into making sure that the Cold War never turned "hot." One of these was Robert Komer, a World War II-era U.S. Army intelligence officer, who was one of the earliest employees of the new Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) when it was created in 1947. Working as an analyst, Komer would have a remarkable career that would span decades and have him serving presidents from Harry S. Truman, to Jimmy Carter. His work covered everything from strengthening U.S. forces and NATO, to helping run counterinsurgency programs in Vietnam. And through this wide variety of assignments and challenges, Komer acquired a nickname for his high-energy, and sometimes fiery style of work: Blowtorch.
To learn more about Robert "Blowtorch" Komer, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNIBooks) writer Frank Leith Jones, the author of BLOWTORCH. BLOWTORCH is a compelling biography of Robert Komer, and his amazing professional journey through the Cold War from the 1940s through to the Carter administration. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and opinions on the book and Mr. Komer, as we remember the sometimes dark days of the Cold War.

Dr. Leonard Horowitz had his You Tube channel pulled recently.
Read this press release for more information. and watch this video: https://vimeo.com/103031859
Dr. Horowitz is the author of the book: Emerging Viruses: Aids and Ebola: Nature, Accident, or Intentional
Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz’s national best-seller (that the New York Times refused to review) provides the first in-depth exploration into the origins of HIV and Ebola.
Honolulu, HI—A Harvard trained expert in public health and emerging diseases, Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, claims the 2014 Ebola “outbreak” smacks of scientific fraud and commercial crime.
In a 24-minute Special Report prepared for public broadcasting on Vimeo’s Revolution Television channel, Dr. Horowitz, an award-winning author and filmmaker, with co-host investigative-journalist Sherri Kane, claims the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has defrauded people after drug industrialists loosed the Ebola Zaire strain from a bioweapons laboratory refrigerator.
The only reasonable explanation for the germ’s sudden re-emergence in a different country after years of hiding in a so-called “natural reservoir” is commercial gain and financial crime involving a refrigerator, Horowitz informs viewers.

"In order to put public opinion into our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment by giving expression from all sides to so many contradictory opinions and for such length of time as will suffice to make the [average person] lose their heads in the labyrinth and come to see that the best thing is to have no opinion of any kind, in matters political."
