Красная зараза польского разлива

Следы преступлений редко бывают полными. Например, на сайте Союза польских харцеров уже нет страницы «Wykus», где, судя по польской Википедии, должен находиться полный текст песни Юзефа Анджея Щепаньского «Czerwona zaraza». Да и в польском Викицитатнике на странице «Józef Szczepański» приведены лишь две первые строфы и последняя. Поэтому найденный на польском сайте «Historia II wojna światowej» полный текст «Józef Szczepański «Czerwona zaraza»» на всякий случай копирую полностью===Czekamy ciebie, czerwona zarazo,byś wybawiła nas od czarnej śmierci,byś nam Kraj przedtem rozdarłwszy na ćwierci,była zbawieniem witanym z odrazą.Czekamy ciebie, ty potęgo tłumuzbydlęciałego pod twych rządów knutemczekamy ciebie, byś nas zgniotła butemswego zalewu i haseł poszumu.Czekamy ciebie, ty odwieczny wrogu,morderco krwawy tłumu naszych braci,czekamy ciebie, nie żeby zapłacić,lecz chlebem witać na rodzinnym progu.Żebyś ty wiedział nienawistny zbawco,jakiej ci śmierci życzymy w podzięcei jak bezsilnie zaciskamy ręcepomocy prosząc, podstępny oprawco.Żebyś ty wiedział dziadów naszych kacie,sybirskich więzień ponura legendo,jak twoją dobroć wszyscy kląć tu będą,wszyscy Słowianie, wszyscy twoi braciaŻebyś ty wiedział, jak to strasznie boli nas, dzieci Wielkiej, Niepodległej, Świętejskuwać w kajdany łaski twej przeklętej,cuchnącej jarzmem wiekowej niewoli.Legła twa armia zwycięska, czerwonau stóp łun jasnych płonącej Warszawyi scierwią duszę syci bólem krwawymgarstki szaleńców, co na gruzach kona.Miesiąc już mija od Powstania chwili,łudzisz nas dział swoich łomotem,wiedząc, jak znowu będzie strasznie potempowiedzieć sobie, że z nas znów zakpili.Czekamy ciebie, nie dla nas, żołnierzy,dla naszych rannych — mamy ich tysiące,i dzieci są tu i matki karmiące,i po piwnicach zaraza się szerzy.Czekamy ciebie — ty zwlekasz i zwlekasz,ty się nas boisz, i my wiemy o tym.Chcesz, byśmy legli tu wszyscy pokotem,naszej zagłady pod Warszawą czekasz.Nic nam nie robisz — masz prawo wybierać,możesz nam pomóc, możesz nas wybawićlub czekać dalej i śmierci zostawić…śmierć nie jest straszna, umiemy umierać.Ale wiedz o tym, że z naszej mogiłyNowa się Polska — zwycięska narodzi.I po tej ziemi ty nie będziesz chodzićczerwony władco rozbestwionej siły.===вместе с комментариями===Przyznam szczerze, iż «Ziutek» to jeden z moich ulubionych poetów powstańczej Warszawy. Jego utwory zawsze są dla mnie źródłem optymizmu, pasji i radości życia. Szczepański, nawet pomimo tragicznej sytuacji walczącej Warszawy, z wielką energią mówił o zwycięstwie i walce. Jak przystało na poetę-żołnierza z ochotą poszedł do boju o stolicę, bijąc się z ofiarnością i zaangażowaniem. W wolnych chwilach znajdował czas na twórczość, która dla potomnych stała się niezwykle ważnym testamentem «Ziutka». «Czerwona zaraza» jawi mi się jako wiersz nietypowy, jak na Szczepańskiego. Pełno tu zadumy, wyrzutów i mrocznych zapowiedzi. De facto był to jego ostatni utwór spisany przed śmiercią, powstał bowiem 29 sierpnia 1944 roku. Łatwo odgadnąć, iż kierowany był do żołnierzy Armii Czerwonej, którzy spokojnie oczekiwali na prawym brzegu Wisły, nie angażując się w walki po stronie sojusznika polskiego. W momencie, gdy Szczepański pisał dramatyczne słowa, dogorywał opór Starego Miasta. «Ziutek» brał udział w pospiesznej ewakuacji dzielnicy i 1 września otrzymał śmiertelny w skutkach postrzał. 10 września zmarł w wyniku odniesionych obrażeń, zostawiając po sobie wspaniały dorobek artystyczny i wspomnienia o walczącym poecie.___Okiem Polonisty: Wiersz , w którym należy dokonać wyboru spośród dwu złych światów; które zło wybrać — oto jest pytanie (prawie Hamletowskie). Zdaje się, że autor jest w desperacji i aby nie patrzeć na śmierć tysięcy, jest gotów pogodzić się z faktem , że wybawiciel będzie sowiecki. Ale ten, mimo zaproszenia zwleka. Stoi już po drugiej stronie Wisły od kilku miesięcy i przygląda się agonii szalonego miasta. Jakże «słuszna» polityka. Wszyscy wiedzą, że powstanie wybuchło m.in. dlatego, aby Rosjanie nie uważali się za oswobodzicieli. Oni też to wiedzieli, więc teraz pozwolą temu miastu się wykrwawić, a przy okazji i wróg niemiecki będzie słabszy. Widzę w słowach podmiotu lirycznego jednak ogromną mściwość. Wynika ona z przekonania, że ta «czerwona zaraza» pewnie zwycięży teraz i tu. Jednak przyjdzie dzień, kiedy Polacy zapłacą jej za wszystko: nie tylko za powstańczą Warszawę, ale za Sybir, za lata upokorzeń i rozpaczy.===Стихотворный перевод «Красная зараза» с соответствующей страницы русской Википедии также на всякий случай копирую полностью===Мы ждём тебя, красная зараза,чтобы спасла нас от чёрной смерти,чтоб четвертованный край наш встретилосвобождение твоё, как проказу.Мы ждём тебя, сброд великой державы,в скотство введённый властей батогами,ждём, что потопчешь ты нас сапогами,зальёшь пропагандой своею лукавой.Мы ждём тебя, лиходей вековечный,собратьев наших убийца кровавый,не жаждем мести, расплаты, расправы,а с хлебом и солью выйдем навстречу,Чтобы ты знал, ненавистный спасатель,какой тебе смерти в награду желаем,как в кулаке свою ярость сжимаем,прося твоей помощи, хитрый каратель.Чтобы ты знал, дедов-прадедов кат,тюрем сибирских страж пресловутый,как проклинает твою доброту тутвесь люд славянский, мнимый твой брат.Чтобы ты знал, как нам страшно и больно,детям Отчизны Свободной, Святой и Великой,вновь оказаться в оковах любви твоей дикой,той, что смердит нам столетней неволей.Непобедимые красные полчища всталиу стен озарённой пожаром Варшавы,тешится стая могильщиков болью кровавойгорстки безумцев, гибнущих в грудах развалин.Месяц прошёл от начала Восстания,громом орудий ты радуешь нас временами,знаешь — как страшно себе не найти оправдания,совесть загложет, что вновь посмеялся над нами.Мы ждём тебя — не ради повстанцев спасения,а ради раненых — тысячи их в муках мрут,много детей тут, кормящие матери тут,а по подвалам гуляет уже эпидемия.Мы ждём тебя — но войска твои всё не спешат,ты нас боишься — мы знаем о том, безусловно,хочешь, чтоб пали мы здесь, как один, поголовно,ждёшь под Варшавой, когда нас тут всех порешат.Больше не просим — тебе самому выбирать:если поможешь — многих от смерти избавишь,ждать будешь — всех на погибель оставишь.Смерть не страшна нам, умеем уже умирать.Но, знай, победитель — из нашего общего гробановая сильная Польша родится когда-то —та, по которой ходить не придётся солдатами повелителям дикого красного сброда.===(там же есть и польский оригинал, но во избежание возможных нареканий на подтасовку со стороны русских энтузиастов я выше взял текст с существующего — на момент этого сообщения — польского сайта). Правда, по ходу обсуждения песни на эти стихи некто jurij fedoryk старательно доказывает, что перевод жёстче оригинала. А уж легенду о том, что советское руководство специально прекратило наступление ради того, чтобы немцы истребили восставших, повторяют по сей день даже невзирая на то, что специалисты — не только наши, но и западные — ещё по горячим следам войны пришли к выводу о физической невозможности дальнейшего продвижения Красной армии в Польше без многомесячной новой подготовки. Кстати, тогда наши войска, включая Войско Польское, всё же сумели с неимоверными потерями форсировать Вислу, но польские командиры восстания отвели свои силы чем подальше от плацдармов, так что немцам удалось вытолкать обратно за Вислу всех, кто пытался помогать повстанцам. На мой взгляд, цитируемое стихотворение доказывает: преступное поведение руководителей Варшавского восстания, отдавших город на истребление, лишь бы не взаимодействовать с нами, опиралось на довольно распространённые предрассудки.

A North Korean Nuclear EMP Attack: The Threat America Downplays at Its Peril

William R. Graham Security, Analysts like Jack Liu and Jeffrey Lewis are to be commended for their interest in educating the public about North Korea’s missile and nuclear programs and endeavoring to provide their readers with “informed analysis.” However, in a series of recent articles, both analysts have written off the possibility of a nuclear electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack from North Korea as “unlikely” and “science fiction” because they believe the 10 to 20 kiloton nuclear weapons currently possessed by North Korea are incapable of making an effective EMP attack. This dismisses the consensus view of EMP experts who have advanced degrees in physics and electrical engineering along with several decades of experience in the field—with access to classified data throughout that time—and who have conducted EMP tests on a wide variety of electronic systems, beginning in 1963. (This first appeared in 38 North here.) By way of background, the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse Attack was established by Congress in 2001 to advise the Congress, the President, the Department of Defense and other departments and agencies of the US Government on the nuclear EMP threat to military systems and civilian critical infrastructures. The EMP Commission was re-established in 2015 with its charter broadened to include natural EMP from solar storms, all manmade EMP threats, cyber-attack, sabotage and Combined-Arms Cyber Warfare. The EMP Commission charter gives it access to all relevant classified and unclassified data and the power to levy analysis upon the Department of Defense. In the interest of better informing 38 North readers about the EMP threat, we offer this commentary to correct errors of fact, analysis, and myths about EMP. Primitive and “Super-EMP” Nuclear Weapons are Both EMP Threats The EMP Commission finds that even primitive, low-yield nuclear weapons are such a significant EMP threat that rogue states, like North Korea, or terrorists may well prefer using a nuclear weapon for EMP attack instead of destroying a city.[1] In its 2004 report, the Commission cautioned: “Certain types of relatively low-yield nuclear weapons can be employed to generate potentially catastrophic EMP effects over wide geographic areas, and designs for variants of such weapons may have been illicitly trafficked for a quarter-century.” In 2004, two Russian generals, both EMP experts, warned the EMP Commission that the design for Russia’s super-EMP warhead, capable of generating high intensity EMP fields of 200,000 volts per meter, was “accidentally” transferred to North Korea, and that due to “brain drain,” Russian scientists were in North Korea, helping with their missile and nuclear weapon programs. South Korean military intelligence told their press that Russian scientists are in North Korea helping develop an EMP nuclear weapon. In 2013, a Chinese military commentator stated North Korea has super-EMP nuclear weapons.[2] Super-EMP weapons are low-yield and designed to produce not a big kinetic explosion, but rather a high level of gamma rays, which generate the high-frequency E1 EMP that is most damaging to the broadest range of electronics. North Korean nuclear tests—including the first in 2006, which was predicted to the EMP Commission two years in advance by the two Russian EMP experts—mostly have yields consistent with the size of a super-EMP weapon. The Russian generals’ accurate prediction of when the North would perform its first nuclear test, and the yield being consistent with a super-EMP weapon, indicates their warning about a North Korean super-EMP weapon should be taken very seriously. EMP Threat from Satellites While most analysts are fixated on when in the future North Korea will develop highly reliable intercontinental ballistic missiles, guidance systems, and reentry vehicles capable of striking a US city, the present threat from EMP is largely ignored. An EMP attack does not require an accurate guidance system because the area of effect, having a radius of hundreds or thousands of kilometers, is so large. No reentry vehicle is needed because the warhead is detonated at high-altitude, above the atmosphere. Missile reliability matters little because only one missile has to work to make an EMP attack. For instance, North Korea could make an EMP attack against the United States by launching a short-range missile off a freighter or submarine or by lofting a warhead to 30 kilometers burst height by balloon. While such lower-altitude EMP attacks would not cover the whole US mainland, as would an attack at higher-altitude (300 kilometers), even a balloon-lofted warhead detonated at 30 kilometers altitude could blackout the Eastern Grid that supports most of the population and generates 75 percent of US electricity. Moreover, an EMP attack could be made by a North Korean satellite. The design of an EMP or even a super-EMP weapon could be relatively small and lightweight, resembling the US W-79 Enhanced Radiation Warhead nuclear artillery shell of the 1980s, designed in the 1950s. Such a device could fit inside North Korea’s Kwangmyongsong-3 (KMS-3) and Kwangmyongsong-4 (KMS-4) satellites that presently orbit the Earth. The south polar trajectory of KMS-3 and KMS-4 evades US Ballistic Missile Early Warning Radars and National Missile Defenses, resembling a Russian secret weapon developed during the Cold War, called the Fractional Orbital Bombardment System (FOBS) that would have used a nuclear-armed satellite to make a surprise EMP attack on the United States.[3] Kim Jong Un has threatened to reduce the United States to “ashes” with “nuclear thunderbolts” and threatened to retaliate for US diplomatic and military pressure by “ordering officials and scientists to complete preparations for a satellite launch as soon as possible” amid “the enemies’ harsh sanctions and moves to stifle” the North.[4] Addressing Misinformation Recent assessments by Jeffrey Lewis and Jack Liu regarding North Korea’s EMP capabilities have some fundamental flaws.[5] For starters, in his article, Jeffrey Lewis claimed that “just one string of street lights failed in Honolulu” during the 1962 Starfish Prime high-altitude nuclear test, and that this is proof of EMP’s harmlessness.[6] In fact, the EMP knocked out 36 strings of street lights, caused a telecommunications microwave relay station to fail, burned out HF (high frequency) radio links (used for long-distance communications), set off burglar alarms, and caused other damage. The Hawaiian Islands also did not experience a catastrophic protracted blackout because they were on the far edge of the EMP field contour, where effects are weakest; are surrounded by an ocean, which mitigates EMP effects; and were still in an age dominated by vacuum tube electronics. In addition, the slow pulse (E3) component of the EMP waveform only couples effectively to very long electric power transmission lines present on large continents, but were in short supply in Hawaii. Starfish Prime was not the only test of this kind. Russia, in 1961-62, also conducted a series of high-altitude nuclear bursts to test EMP effects over Kazakhstan, an industrialized area nearly as large as Western Europe.[7] That test damaged the Kazakh electric grid.[8] Moreover, modern electronics, in part because they are designed to operate at much lower voltages, are much more vulnerable to EMP than the electronics of 1962 exposed to Starfish Prime and the Kazakh nuclear tests. A similar EMP event over the US today would be an existential threat.[9] In his article, Lewis also suggested that vehicle transportation would continue after an EMP event based on the fact that only 6 of 55 vehicles were shut down by a single simulated EMP test on vehicles.[10] However, the EMP test protocol limited testing vehicles only to upset, not to damage, because the EMP Commission could not afford to repair damaged cars. Even with this limitation, one vehicle was still damaged, indicating that at least 2 percent of vehicles were severely affected by EMP damage. Over 50 years of EMP testing indicates that full field damage to vehicles would probably be much higher than 2 percent. Modern vehicles are even more susceptible to EMP attack because of their much larger complement of electronics than present in the vehicles tested by the Commission more than a decade ago. Furthermore, vehicles cannot run without fuel and gas stations cannot operate without electricity. Gas pumps could also be damaged in an EMP attack. In an article by Jack Liu, he asserts in a footnote that because EMP from atmospheric nuclear tests in Nevada did not blackout Las Vegas, therefore EMP is no threat. However, the nuclear tests he describes were all endo-atmospheric tests that do not generate appreciable EMP fields beyond a range of about 5 miles. The high-altitude EMP (HEMP) threat of interest requires exo-atmospheric detonation, at 30 kilometers altitude or above, and produces EMP out to ranges of hundreds to thousands of miles. Liu also miscalculates that “a 20-kiloton bomb detonated at optimum height would have a maximum EMP damage distance of 20 kilometers” in part, because he assumes “15,000 volts/meter or higher” in the E1 EMP component is necessary for damage. This figure is an extreme overestimation of system damage field thresholds. Damage and upset to electronic systems will happen from E1 EMP field strengths far below Liu’s “15,000 volts/meter or higher.” A one meter wire connected to a semiconductor device, such as a mouse cord or interconnection cable, would place hundreds to thousands of volts on microelectronic devices out to ranges of hundreds of miles for low-yield devices. Based on our experience with many EMP tests, semiconductor junctions operate at a few volts, and will experience breakdown at a few volts over their operating point, allowing their power supply to destroy exposed junctions. Furthermore, Liu ignores system upset as a vulnerability. Digital electronics can be upset by extraneous pulses of a few volts. For unmanned control systems present within the electric power grid, long-haul communication repeater stations, and gas pipelines, an electronic upset is tantamount to permanent damage. Temporary upset of electronics can also have catastrophic consequences for military operations. No electronics should be considered invulnerable to EMP unless hardened or tested to certify survivability. Some highly-critical unprotected electronics have been upset or damaged in simulated EMP tests, not at “15,000 volts/meter or higher,” but at threat levels far below 1,000 volts/meter. Therefore, even for a low-yield 10-20 kiloton weapon, the EMP field should be considered dangerous for unprotected US systems. The EMP Commission 2004 Report warned against the US military’s increasing use of commercial-off-the-shelf-technology that is not protected against EMP: “Our increasing dependence on advanced electronics systems results in the potential for an increased EMP vulnerability of our technologically advanced forces, and if unaddressed makes EMP employment by an adversary an attractive asymmetric option.”[11] The North Korean missile test on April 29, which apparently detonated at an altitude of 72 kilometers, the optimum height-of-burst for EMP attack by a 10 KT warhead, would create a potentially damaging EMP field spanning an estimated 930 kilometer radius [kilometers radius = 110 (kilometers burst height to the 0.5 Power)], not Liu’s miscalculated 20 kilometer radius. US Vulnerabilities to EMP When assessing the potential vulnerability of US military forces and civilian critical infrastructures to EMP, it is necessary to be mindful of the complex interdependencies of these highly-networked systems, because EMP upset and damage of a very small fraction of the total system can cause total system failure.[12] Real world failures of electric grids from various causes indicate that the Congressional EMP Commission, US Department of Defense, US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), US Department of Homeland Security, and US Defense Threat Reduction Agency are right that a nuclear EMP attack would have catastrophic consequences. Significant and highly-disruptive blackouts have been caused by single-point failures cascading into system-wide failures, originating from damage comprising far less than 1 percent of the total system.[13] In contrast to blackouts caused by single-point or small-scale failures, a nuclear EMP attack would inflict massive widespread damage to the electric grid, causing millions of failure points. With few exceptions, the US national electric grid is unhardened and untested against nuclear EMP attack. In the event of a nuclear EMP attack on the United States, a widespread protracted blackout is inevitable. This common sense assessment is also supported by the nation’s best computer modeling.[14] Thus, even if North Korea only has primitive, low-yield nuclear weapons, and if other states or terrorists acquire one or a few such weapons as well as the capability to detonate them at an altitude of 30 kilometers or higher over the United States. As, the EMP Commission warned over a decade ago in its 2004 Report, “the damage level could be sufficient to be catastrophic to the Nation, and our current vulnerability invites attack.” William R.

[6] Lewis, “Would A North Korean Space Nuke Really Lay Waste to the U.S.?” [7] High-altitude EMP (HEMP), the phenomenon under discussion, results from the detonation of a nuclear weapon at high-altitude, 30 kilometers or higher. All nuclear weapons, even a primitive Hiroshima-type A-bomb, can produce levels of HEMP damaging to modern electronics over large geographic regions. [8] According to Electric Infrastructure Security Council, Report: USSR Nuclear EMP Upper Atmosphere Kazakhstan Test 184, (www.eiscouncil.org/APP_Data/upload/a4ce4b06-1a77-44d-83eb-842bb2a56fc6.pdf), citing research by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a comparable EMP event over the U.S. today “would likely damage about 365 large transformers in the U.S. power grid, leaving about 40 percent of the U.S. population without electrical power for 4 to 10 years.” [9] Foster, et al., Report of the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Attack, Volume. 1: Executive Report, 4-8.

[13]For example, the Great Northeast Blackout of 2003—that put 50 million people in the dark for a day, contributed to at least 11 deaths, and cost an estimated $6 billion—originated from a single failure point when a powerline contacted a tree branch, damaging less than 0.0000001 (0.00001%) of the total system. The New York City Blackout of 1977, which resulted in the arrest of 4,500 looters and injury of 550 police officers, was caused by a lightning strike on a substation that tripped two circuit breakers. India’s nationwide blackout of 2012—the largest blackout in history, effecting 670 million people, 9% of the world population—was caused by overload of a single high-voltage powerline. [14]Modeling by the US FERC reportedly assesses that a terrorist attack that destroys just 9 of 2,000 EHV transformers–merely 0.0045 (0.45%) of all EHV transformers in the US national electric grid–would be catastrophic damage, causing a protracted nationwide blackout. Modeling by the Congressional EMP Commission assesses that a terrorist nuclear EMP attack, using a primitive 10-kiloton nuclear weapon, could destroy dozens of EHV transformers, thousands of SCADAS and electronic systems, causing catastrophic collapse and protracted blackout of the US Eastern Grid, putting at risk the lives of millions. For the best unclassified modeling assessment of likely damage to the US national electric grid from nuclear EMP attack see: US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Interagency Report, coordinated with the Department of Defense and Oak Ridge National Laboratory: Electromagnetic Pulse: Effects on the U.S. Power Grid, Executive Summary (2010); FERC Interagency Report by Edward Savage, James Gilbert and William Radasky, The Early-Time (E1) High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) and Its Impact on the U.S. Power Grid (Meta-R-320) Metatech Corporation (January 2010); FERC Interagency Report by James Gilbert, John Kappenman, William Radasky, and Edward Savage, The Late-Time (E3) High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (HEMP) and Its Impact on the U.S. Power Grid (Meta-R-321) Metatech Corporation (January 2010).

Entropic forces drive self-organization and membrane fusion by SNARE proteins [Biophysics and Computational Biology]

SNARE proteins are the core of the cell’s fusion machinery and mediate virtually all known intracellular membrane fusion reactions on which exocytosis and trafficking depend. Fusion is catalyzed when vesicle-associated v-SNAREs form trans-SNARE complexes (“SNAREpins”) with target membrane-associated t-SNAREs, a zippering-like process releasing ∼65 kT per SNAREpin. Fusion requires several...

KT и Verizon провели первый в истории сеанс голографической связи

Исследования в области голографических технологий и интерфейсов в последнее время становятся все более популярными в научной среде. Несмотря на то, что полноценное внедрение голограмм в нашу жизнь произойдет не скоро, практически не остается сомнений в том, что за этими технологиями будущее. Но вполне возможно, что будущее это ближе, чем кажется, ведь недавно специалисты компании KT […]

Осуществлён первый в мире голографический звонок в сети 5G

Американский гигант Verizon и южнокорейская корпорация KT на этой неделе осуществили, как утверждается, первый международный голографический звонок с применением технологий сотовой связи пятого поколения (5G). Голографические коммуникации подразумевают формирование голограммы собеседника — объёмного изображения, позволяющего точно передавать эмоции и жестикуляцию человека. Для работы таких систем потребуется высокая пропускная способность канала связи, которую нынешние технологии обеспечить не могут.

Remarks by Vice President Mike Pence at Women’s Empowerment Panel

The East Room 3:18 P.M. EDT   THE VICE PRESIDENT:  Thank you all.  Thank you, KT, for that memorable introduction.  (Laughter.)  And thank you, KT, for your great leadership on the airwaves and in this administration.  We're so grateful to you.  (Applause.)    On behalf of President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, it is my great privilege today to welcome members of our Cabinet and women from across the country, business leaders, leaders in academic life and public life, leaders in your communities, friends all, welcome to the White House.  (Applause.)    And it’s great to be here during Women’s History Month, isn’t it?     AUDIENCE MEMBERS:  Yes, it is.   THE VICE PRESIDENT:  The world has celebrated International Women’s Day on March 8th since 1911.  It was in 1980 that President Jimmy Carter declared the week of March 8th National Women’s History Week; and six years later, the National Women’s History Project successfully petitioned Congress to expand National Women’s History Week into the entire month of March.  And today, here in the East Room at the White House, we're continuing a celebration of Women’s History Month by really bringing together an extraordinary group of women who are serving this administration with incredible distinction.  (Applause.)    We welcome you all to this Women’s Empowerment Panel.  This event is really the tail end of a month that culminates in a series of activities where President Trump has sought to honor women’s contributions to the United States of America.   He’s held multiple listening sessions dedicated to finding solutions to the unique challenges that women face in the workplace and in running businesses.   He’s signed legislation promoting education and employment for women in the sciences -- in areas that we've been historically under-represented.   And he signed a proclamation declaring that women’s “contributions to our Nation’s life, culture, history, economy, and families have shaped us and helped fulfill America’s promise.”   The truth of this statement is evident for all to see.  This may be Women’s History Month, but the fact is that women in America make history every single day.  (Applause.)    Today I’m really looking forward to just sitting in.  You're going to hear today from some of the extraordinary women that President Trump has brought in to help lead this administration -- Betsy DeVos, from one of the great, storied business families in Michigan and America.  (Applause.)  Now the Administrator of the Small Business Administration [sic].  Betsy has already been on the road talking about how we get America moving again for women entrepreneurs.     And of course, one of my two daughters’ favorites, she was a governor, now she is the United States Ambassador to the United Nations -- Nikki Haley is with us today.  (Applause.)  As you can imagine my two daughters -- one in college, who is headed to law school next year, and one who just started her career -- are not very impressed with people in politics.  (Laughter.)  But both of them said to me, a few years ago when Nikki passed through a challenging time in the life of her state, they said, that Nikki Haley is really cool.  And we are so honored to have you in this administration.  (Applause.)     And the new Administrator for the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services -- and a Hoosier -- Seema Verma is with us today.  (Applause.)  This is an extraordinary group of women, and I’m looking forward to hearing their thoughts today.     And it really is the greatest privilege of my life to serve as Vice President to President Donald Trump.  (Applause.)    This is a President who has advanced the interests of women and relied on women leaders at crucial moments throughout his career -- like when he named a woman to lead his campaign for President, and Kellyanne Conway became the first woman in American history to lead a successful presidential campaign.  (Applause.)    The truth is, American women are making a difference in our administration, in our economy, and in our communities every single day.    They’re driving our economy through entrepreneurship and innovation.  In fact, there are more than 9.4 million women-owned American businesses that employ nearly 8 million Americans with annual revenues now totaling $1.5 trillion.   American women no doubt inspired by the leaders like those gathered in this room today are also graduating from college and post-secondary education in record numbers.   And women leaders are defending our nation and wearing the uniform of the United States of America.  (Applause.)  I’m proud to say my wife, Karen, has actually spent this month at the direction of Mrs. Trump highlighting the service of women in our armed forces and the spouses that support men in our armed forces.   And American women are leading our country from the halls of government, and you’re about to hear from some of the most noteworthy.   In the midst of busy lives, American women are also doing those most precious things -- they're making time for families, for communities, and for involvement in religious organizations.    President Trump and our administration I promise you are going to work tirelessly to empower women to be able to climb the ladder of opportunity and contribute even more to America’s success in the years ahead.   And I know, under President Trump’s leadership, the future for our country and the future for American women is brighter than ever before.  (Applause.)    One of those great leaders I’m going to invite to the podium -- another great American leader in public life will be our moderator today.  Join me in welcoming the attorney general of the great state of Florida, Pam Bondi.  (Applause.)    END  3:25 P.M. EDT
