    • F-35 Jet Disappears, Raising Concerns and Delaying Rescue MissionAn F-35 jet from the Civil Air Patrol went missing, causing a lengthy search and rescue mission. Another aviation accident involving a Marine V-22 Osprey led to a stand-down for all US Marine Corps units. The reasons for the F-35's disappearance are unknown, with theories including software glitches, pilot error, and transponder malfunction.

      The disappearance of an F-35 jet from the South Carolina wing of the Civil Air Patrol has raised significant concerns, as the search and rescue mission took hours to locate the debris, which was surprisingly close to the ejection site. The incident follows another tragic accident involving a Marine V-22 Osprey in Australia, leading to a stand-down for all aviation units within the US Marine Corps. The cause of the F-35's disappearance remains unclear, with theories ranging from software glitches to pilot error. The transponder malfunction is a notable question mark, as it should have allowed for easier tracking of the aircraft. President Zelensky of Ukraine is currently in Washington, D.C., seeking additional financial aid, but facing a more skeptical Congress regarding the use and effectiveness of the previous aid.

    • President Zelensky's Visit to Washington and Controversial Drone StrikesDuring his visit, Zelensky was pressed about corruption and drone strikes in Russia. He was caught in a lie, leading him to change his tone and express gratitude while outlining Ukraine's needs. Corruption within Ukraine's defense ministry is under scrutiny, resulting in minister purges.

      During President Zelensky's visit to Washington, there were concerns raised about Ukraine's use of weapons against Russian territory and allegations of corruption within the Ukrainian defense ministry. President Zelensky was pressed about these issues during an interview, where he was caught in a lie about not ordering drone strikes in Russia. This incident, along with the ongoing skepticism towards endless aid from the US and Europe, has led President Zelensky to change his tone and express gratitude while also outlining Ukraine's needs. Additionally, there is increasing scrutiny on corruption within Ukraine, leading to a purge of ministers in the defense ministry. These political dynamics and shifting media tone indicate that President Zelensky recognizes the significant shift in the political landscape.

    • Delicate balance of military aid and conflict escalationThe Biden admin's decision to withhold long-range missiles for Ukraine raises questions about trustworthiness and effectiveness of military aid, as ongoing packages totaling billions haven't resulted in major breakthroughs.

      The Biden administration's decision to withhold the announcement of long-range missile systems for Ukraine during President Zelensky's visit highlights the delicate balance between providing military aid and avoiding escalation of the conflict with Russia. The leak of this decision, despite the reported readiness to provide these systems, raises questions about Ukraine's trustworthiness in using the weapons responsibly and the effectiveness of such aid in bringing about a significant change in the war's outcome. The ongoing military aid packages, totaling billions of dollars, have yet to result in a major breakthrough, leading some to question the endgame and the sustainability of this approach. The political implications of the conflict for the Biden administration and the ongoing negotiations in Congress regarding Ukraine aid add to the complexity of the situation. Ultimately, the American people deserve a clear explanation of how this conflict will be resolved and how the nation's resources are being used effectively.

    • Ukraine aid funding in Congress faces opposition from conservatives and House Freedom CaucusCongressional deadlock over Ukraine aid funding may result in a government shutdown, as opposition from conservative groups and the House Freedom Caucus makes it unlikely for a continuing resolution to pass before the October 1 deadline.

      The situation surrounding Ukraine aid funding in Congress is complex and contentious, with significant opposition coming from conservative influencers and some members of the House Freedom Caucus. This opposition has made it unlikely that a continuing resolution to fund the government and Ukraine aid will pass through both the House and the Senate before the October 1 deadline, potentially leading to a government shutdown. Kevin McCarthy, the House Speaker, has not committed to passing any Ukraine aid and has been criticized by some members of his own party. The Senate and the President have expressed their support for the aid, setting up a potential showdown. The situation is further complicated by the fact that all 100 senators are meeting with President Zelensky, while a similar meeting is not happening on the House side. Overall, the situation is chaotic and uncertain, with no clear endgame in sight for passing the funding measures.

    • Political standoff over Ukraine aid and federal spending creates complex situationDemocrats and Republicans clash over Ukraine aid and federal spending, potentially leading to a government shutdown or a continuing resolution. The proposed deal's failure within the Republican caucus due to proposed cuts to various programs adds to the complexity, while the UAW strike at the big 3 automakers adds another layer to the political landscape.

      The ongoing political standoff between Democrats and Republicans over funding for Ukraine aid and federal spending is creating a complex and dicey situation. While a continuing resolution that includes Ukraine aid might benefit Democrats, a government shutdown over the issue could be a whole different conversation. The proposed deal's failure within the Republican caucus due to proposed cuts to various programs, including food stamps, makes navigating this situation even more challenging. Meanwhile, the UAW strike at the big 3 automakers is another significant issue, with workers demanding record contracts despite record profits. Trump's response has been ambiguous, and he plans to visit Detroit to signal his support for workers while also using the moment to criticize Biden's stance on electric vehicles. Ultimately, these situations highlight the political complexity and potential for standoffs in the coming days.

    • Trump's Hardline Stance on Auto Workers' StrikeTrump advocates for firing striking workers, drawing criticism for off-base attacks on union leaders, as the current UAW leadership maintains worker support.

      During a discussion about the ongoing auto workers' strike, it was noted that some Republican figures, including Trump, have advocated for a hardline stance against striking workers, suggesting they would be fired if they chose to strike. This strategy, which was exemplified by Ronald Reagan during his presidency, is seen as a politically savvy move by Trump to dominate the conversation and potentially influence the media coverage of the issue. However, critics argue that Trump's rhetoric attacking union leaders and suggesting workers form new unions is off base, as the current union leadership, including United Auto Workers (UAW) President Rory Gamble, has the support of the workers on the ground. Despite Trump's efforts to counterprogram the debates, it remains to be seen how successful he will be in breaking through the media coverage of the debates and the strike.

    • Political leaders take clear positions on labor strikeTrump's ambiguous stance vs Biden's unequivocal support for workers' rights and wages could impact auto execs and potentially lead to bipartisan support for workers' cause, highlighting the power of the presidency's bully pulpit in shaping public opinion and labor disputes.

      The current labor strike at the auto factories presents an opportunity for political leaders to take clear and meaningful positions on workers' rights and wages. The contrasting messages from Trump and Biden illustrate this. Trump, who has a history of union busting, has been ambiguous in his support for the strikers, while Biden has been unequivocal in his stance for workers and their demands for better wages. This moment could potentially put pressure on auto executives and even lead to bipartisan support for the workers' cause. The power of the presidency's bully pulpit in shaping public opinion and potentially influencing the outcome of labor disputes should not be underestimated. The current strike also marks a time of increased public support for unions and striking workers, which could create a unique opportunity for political leaders to make a difference.

    • Labor disputes in the auto industry could threaten automakers' profitsUAW's demands for wage increases and longer work weeks could bankrupt automakers, but some argue the automakers' own resource allocation is also an issue

      The ongoing labor disputes in the auto industry, specifically the demands from the UAW for significant wage increases and longer work weeks, could potentially threaten the future profits of the major automakers. While labor costs are a small part of their overall expenses, the potential costs of implementing the UAW's demands, such as defined benefit pensions and a 32-hour work week, could put these companies into bankruptcy. Some argue that the UAW's emboldened stance is being fueled by the Biden administration's push for unionization. However, it's important to note that the automakers have also increased CEO pay and given out large stock buybacks, which some critics argue is a misallocation of resources that could be used to pay workers more. Ultimately, the success of the automakers will depend on their ability to find a fair solution to the labor disputes and continue to produce profitable cars.

    • Economic struggles lead to discontent among workersWorkers face financial burdens in industries like autos and housing, leading to frustration and a sense that the American dream is out of reach. The Democratic party risks losing voters if it doesn't effectively address this issue.

      The economic struggles faced by workers, particularly in industries like autos and housing, have led to growing discontent and frustration. The bailout of auto companies during economic downturns left workers with reduced pensions and benefits, setting the stage for their current demands. Meanwhile, housing affordability, especially in cities like Milwaukee, has reached record lows, making it nearly impossible for many to afford homes or even rentals. This issue, which affects people across the income spectrum outside of the wealthy, contributes to a sense that the American dream is out of reach. The Democratic party, as the supposed representative of working and middle class interests, risks losing voters if it fails to address this issue effectively. Despite this, there have been proposals to improve housing affordability, but more action is needed to alleviate the financial burden on workers and help them achieve the American dream.

    • Housing affordability crisis impacts national self-conceptionYoung people struggle to buy homes due to high prices and large down payments, worsened by permanent capital and luxury housing development. This crisis undermines faith in economy and leadership, hindering generational wealth.

      The housing affordability crisis in the United States is a significant issue that goes beyond individual economic circumstances and impacts our national self-conception. Young people, particularly millennials, struggle to buy homes due to high prices and the need for large down payments. Permanent capital buying up neighborhoods and luxury housing development exacerbate the problem. This issue is crucial yet underestimated and underdiscussed, leading to voter dissatisfaction with the economy and political leadership. The housing affordability crisis affects people's ability to build generational wealth and undermines their faith in the economy. Recently, the writers' strike in Hollywood caused delays in the return of a talk show, but both sides have agreed to resume negotiations, leading to a delay in the show's return.

    • Bill Maher's Decision to Cross Picket LineBill Maher returned to work despite the Writers Guild strike, citing financial concerns and pressure from guests, but his actions sparked controversy and backlash within the industry.

      Bill Maher's decision to cross the Writers Guild picket line to host his show "Real Time" was likely influenced by a combination of factors, including pressure from guests and potential backlash from his own union membership. Despite his initial justification for returning to work being framed altruistically, it appears that his true feelings may have been revealed in a podcast conversation with Jim Gaffigan, where he expressed concern for the financial wellbeing of professional writers in the industry. The lack of substantive movement in negotiations and the unwillingness of Democratic or Liberal guests to cross the picket line may have also played a role in his decision. Ultimately, Maher's actions were a violation of his own union membership and sparked controversy and backlash within the industry.

    • Public pressure and online bullying shape decisionsPublic support or criticism, especially online, can significantly influence decisions and impact individuals, as seen in the cases of Drew Barrymore's talk show and Vice President Kamala Harris.

      Public pressure and online bullying can influence decisions, as seen in the case of Drew Barrymore's talk show and the criticism towards Vice President Kamala Harris. In the former, the overwhelming public support for the writers led to the show's cancellation despite the audience being mostly unknown. In the latter, the increased scrutiny towards Harris, a black woman in a historic role, has resulted in criticism that goes beyond her competence. However, data suggests that her unpopularity is not solely due to her race, but rather her political abilities. Even within the Democratic party, there are concerns about her potential re-nomination for the vice presidency. These instances highlight the power of public opinion and the impact it can have on individuals and decisions.

    • Kamala Harris' Political Power Limited by Past Performance and Approval RatingsDespite her limitations, Harris continues to receive public support from Democrats and the media, while Newsom upstages her without pushback. The ultra-wealthy dodge taxes with help from politicians, worsened by bipartisan tax cuts.

      Kamala Harris faces significant limitations in her political power due to her past performance in the Democratic primary and her lackluster approval ratings. Despite this, Democratic politicians and the media continue to support her publicly, likely due to party loyalty and the desire to avoid appearing critical of a sitting vice president. Meanwhile, Gavin Newsom has been able to upstage Harris consistently without facing significant pushback. On a separate note, the ultra-wealthy in America have been able to avoid paying their fair share in taxes through legal means, with the help of politicians like Neil Katyal, a former Obama solicitor general, who is now pushing for a Supreme Court case to permanently ban wealth taxes. This situation has been made worse by bipartisan support for tax cuts for the rich.

    • Political Elites and their Avoidance of Transparency and AccountabilityThe wealthy and powerful in politics are using their influence and resources to avoid transparency and accountability, raising questions about fairness and societal health. A wealth tax, based on the original definition and implementation of the 16th amendment, could address revenue generation, basic fairness, and societal health.

      The wealthy and powerful in politics are using their influence and resources to avoid transparency and accountability, raising questions about fairness and the health of our society. The discussion touched upon the potential constitutionality of a wealth tax, with the argument that based on the original definition and implementation of the 16th amendment, it should not pose a problem. The need for a wealth tax was also emphasized due to revenue generation, basic fairness, and societal health. Additionally, the trend of elites dressing down in official capacities was discussed, with the argument that it symbolizes a lack of respect for the seriousness of their roles in representative democracy. The debate around dress code and its significance in symbolizing the seriousness and service aspect of political roles was also emphasized.

    • Dressing for duty: Roman Senate's strict dress codeMaintaining high standards, even in trivial matters, is crucial to honor trust and respect in leadership roles and preserve community values.

      The way we dress and present ourselves can reflect our commitment to our community and our roles as leaders. The Roman Senate's strict dress code served as a symbol of civic identity and duty to the larger community. When standards slip, it can be a sign of civilizational decline. The speaker emphasizes the importance of maintaining high standards, even in seemingly trivial matters, as a way to honor the trust and respect of those we serve. Additionally, the speaker shares an interesting historical anecdote about the Roman Senate's dress code and its potential connection to the foundations of American democracy. This discussion highlights the idea that our actions, even small ones, can have larger implications and help shape the culture and values of our communities.

    Episode Notes

    Most of the time, for these event coverage conversations, we get to connect with keynote speakers to learn more about the topic they plan to share at the event. During our conversation with Joe Sullivan, we did that ... and so, so much more.

    We talk about Joe's role in prosecuting cyber crime—and the ironic twist where he was charged and convicted as the former CISO at Uber. We touch on Tim Brown's situation with the SEC as a result of the SolarWinds Breach. And then Joe takes this conversation to the stratosphere to shed some light on the trends he is seeing, the rise in the pressure for the role and the rise in the temperature across the CISO community. He discusses the challenges the CISO role continues to face, and how the growing fear of personal liability as a result of the conflict between the public and private sectors could ultimately ice the role and make it ineffective. Joe wants to change this, is leveraging Black Hat, ITSPmagazine, and other outlets to do so. But he needs the community's help as well.

    Tune in to this (dare we say, approaching emotional) conversation to hear about Joe's journey and all the things he is doing to help keep the CISO role safe and successful. And, most importantly, how you—a security professional that cares about good winning over evil—can join yet another fight for good.

    About Joe's Keynote at Black Hat Europe 2023 in London, England—'My Lessons from the Uber Case': In a case closely watched and debated by security professionals globally, Joe Sullivan was convicted of two felonies related to a security incident at Uber that the company had labeled a coverup when it fired him. The decision reverberated throughout the security community, but still left many unanswered questions. Before the judge sentenced him, Sullivan committed that he would speak wherever possible about the need for a better model for collaboration between the private sector and government. The judge rejected the claims by the prosecutors and Uber that the use of an NDA during the investigation was a coverup, and sentenced Sullivan to probation only.

    Today, Sullivan mentors security leaders and consults on security best practices, in addition to serving as volunteer CEO of the nonprofit humanitarian relief organization Ukraine Friends. In a candid conversation, Sullivan will share the lessons he hopes security professionals all learn from his case, so that they, their team, and their company don't ever go through anything similar. He will also make suggestions for how the private sector and government can better collaborate and share other insights about the high-stakes pressures on security executives in an era of unrelenting breaches, ransomware, and automated attacks.
