Sebastian Gorka Believes Gen. Mark Milley Is a 'Dangerous Coward'

"It seems to be a recurring theme of late. The left's gasoline of america. Why here's the perfect example. For four years we were told that this man was a dictator. The donald trump wants to create some kind of banana republic and used the military to stay in power. What's the truth. Did he spy on journalists like obama did. Did he lock up. The sources for those journalists like obama did did he spy did he use the nsa and the cia and the fbi to s- avail the author parthiv presidential campaign. No that's what democrats do the now we have in contravention of what is meant to be the bedrock of our national security establishment which is civilian control of the military. This isn't argentina in the nineteen eighties. This isn't Fidel castro's cuba or franco's spain. The chief of the military isn't a man any uniform in america. The commander in chief ways no uniform. He's a civilian. The military has to take his orders but in contravention of that constitutional order. We have the most senior man in uniform never elected by anybody mark. Milley think that he gets to take the decisions thinking that he gets to obstruct and choose who other members of the cabinet should be. Fat is the definition of a banana republic. That is a threat to the security of all americans irrespective of who you voted for. Perspective of what your personal political proclivities are when a man who has no political legitimacy nanda who according to the national security act of nineteen forty seven according to the us constitution has zero command authority. None the of the junkies has zero command authority. The constitutional mandate the code is clear. He is an advisor on military issues to the incumbent. Commander in chief. Who happens to be the civilian president. Mark milley is a threat to the american republic. And he's clearly not a republican and he clearly does not believe in america. I he is a coward and he's a dangerous coward.

Cross-Cultural Casting: Noteworthy for Hollywood, but Not Exactly New

"The conventional criticism of diverse casting is that it violates some unspoken rule about realism. It's utterly one way traffic. He will not be getting any white people. Playing fellow lay anytime soon. If there's a bio-pic nelson mandela will not be played by a white actor. This is gum. That's the view on one british. Talk show anyway. But as npr's film critic bob mandela explains cross cultural casting has always raised eyebrows even though it's as old as casting itself in the fifth century bc when the greek playwright escalates needed a defense attorney for his leading man in the tragedy or sta he picked the god apollo choice. You do not make. If you're worried about vera similitude in casting live theater has always assumed. The audience can make imaginative leaps whether it's depicting warrior kings who rant or founding fathers who wrap shots. Hamilton of course is a special case. It's a broadway musical famous. Not just for putting hip hop in the mouths of thomas jefferson and george washington but for matching black and brown faces to those historic white characters. Every time i write a piece of theater. I'm trying to get us on the board. Latino composer-lyricist lin-manuel miranda's speaking with fresh air's terry gross black and brown artists. This is a story of america then told by american now. It's our country to talk with inclusion. Hamilton's calling card. Diverse audiences made it a worldwide phenomenon and outcome. That seems natural. In retrospect but that flew in the face of decades of theatre practice in nineteen eighty-six when the stage union actor's equity convened the first national symposium on nontraditional casting. It noted that more than ninety percent of actors hired in the us were white and presented scenes designed to help theater makers consider other possibilities

But i had been a producer for cbs news. I'd quit because i was disgusted by what was happening there. I thought it was empty and offensive. And i ended up taking a job at the hedrick martin institute for lesbian and gay youth becoming an aids educator to teenagers in the schools all over new york city as i got educated about what i had to educate people about. It became clear to me that the epidemic was a political event that it was very much like the vietnam war that i had marched against that it was about people in power not caring about anyone else and being perfectly happy to send people off to die so i could see. The thread was clear. And then i went to something called the war conference in the beginning of nineteen eighty eight and that was a meeting of about two hundred. Lgbt activists from around the country and i begged to be invited to the war conference. And i got there and people started talking about act up. And i thought oh my god. This sounds like something. I really should check out. As soon as i got back. There was a monday night meeting. I went to the monday night meeting. And i walked in and i thought oh my god. These are my people. These are the cranky individualists. Who are really too weird to be part of normal society. And they're here doing civil disobedience and direct action.

"Starting in nineteen seventy through the nineteen eighty nine season they're holding the other hitters at bay they're put up zeroes they might not go through every getting one two three but their pitching effectively teams now find it N. F. Ammar to ask that picture to go the distance to go the whole game to pitch a complete game and I think that is one of the parts of baseball or things about Major League Baseball that I miss sports of all the change we could I could make a point a similar point something that used to be very common in the game that is now extinct football works this way their hits in the NFL that were legal twenty years ago that are no longer allowed that might happen with the suspension and big fine to tapped on it piled on top of that you might get hit like that I don't know five to ten times a year if that in the NFL for the most part the players have all been adjusted that aspect of the game football is a collision sport where guys are getting their heads take it off that's kind of gone the way of the audio cassette tape like it's just not stop part of modern football so there are things that have come and gone in sports that make you make me sometimes feel like the version of the game I either grew up with or the parts of the game that I romanticized when I was younger I what made that sport what made that leaguer what made that game better and for baseball watching starting pitchers finish what they started is absolutely something that baseball lacks now and I think has made it I think it's made it a worse game I think they're absolutely people in this still exist but to a much lesser extent I think you can pick up great picture from a past era in that picture would be someone that you either tuned in to watch appointment viewing or you bought tickets to see pitch I think Cheney Colfax obviously had that effect Bob gives him more modern Roger Clemens Randy Johnson Pedro Martinez pictures that if you bought a ticket to their game Greg Maddux you were just going because they were starting the game you knew you were probably going to watch them go what bare minimum seven innings and I think pitching matchups did you match up for like the more key outside of in arena before a boxing match or before a UFC fight like pitcher versus picture when you would go to a game and you wouldn't know that it was really going to be not just for a hundred pitches for five plus innings it was gonna be picture a versus picture beat in those individual matchups those personal matchups inside of the game I think made baseball more compelling more interesting what are the things about baseball that you miss what are the things about baseball give me something about baseball that you grew up with that is basically been taken out of the game that no longer exists something that is made baseball inferior product we've got to come by no hitters in three weeks from nineteen seventy to nineteen eighty nine twenty years we had two total if you look at the complete games that it's crazy we don't have a pitcher in Major League Baseball with more than two complete games this year last year was the same thing to complete games led the league let all baseball to a picture that stays healthy makes thirty six thirty seven starts in the year to complete games led the league ten years ago two thousand eight CC Sabathia had seven to lead the league twenty years ago nineteen ninety eight Curt Schilling at fifteen if you went and watched Curt Schilling pitch twenty years ago there was somewhere between a forty to fifty percent chance that you are going to watch him pitch nine innings that's crazy twenty years ago for me kind of feels like yesterday and that's how much baseball is change and I don't think it's changed a good way for example last night Houston versus Seattle there is there just throws ninety plus pitches in six innings he's not giving up but he's not a fission and then you've got three other relievers your comment now they're starting off fittings so it's not like AJ Hinch is going to the mounted taken out a lefty every faced one batter and you've got a bunch of stops and starts but still it's for pitching changes you now have teams especially in the American League teams that Kerry more pictures than position players twenty five man roster you've teams with thirteen pictures in twelve hitters not at all uncommon were you have games now where there are six pitchers I want to make an appearance and that means you might get to the late any seven day thing where one team makes to pitching changes in ending that's for pitching changes total for an inning that's got to be at least an extra five to ten minutes added to the game so that's one of the things I miss about baseball it was not yep my dad's error of baseball the nineteen seventies and nineteen eighties guys were most starting pitchers we're going at least seven innings in like a half of their starts they were going nine yeah I think that was one of the things that made baseball better and I think that's something baseball is missing today with two combined no hitters in three weeks that's unprecedented there were two and twenty years from nineteen seventy to nineteen eighty nine all the pitching Machen nations starting pitchers getting taken out of games early bullpens blowing up and enlarging the way that they have one of the many changes to baseball that happened organically wasn't a rule change that force that that just naturally happened that I think has made the game worse I think baseball's worse off now that starting pitchers are coddled now that teams through analytics and their own metrics have figured out the pictures aren't as effective when you leave them in the face to line up a third time or even a fourth time in overall teams are smarter but being smarter doesn't put a better product on the field a smart product can be a less entertaining product and I think Justin what we saw last night with another combined no hitter it's more proof that that is not that baseball's a dead sport yeah that no one cares about it anymore but one of the reasons why I think baseball has declined is the way the game is pitched it's not a one man job with a closer and maybe a set up man lefty specialist thrown in you're getting bowl pens that are empty it out five six pitchers every night per team and I think that's bad for this for I think Major League Baseball is more popular when it was this team's starter verses that team starter and they're going to pitch for a long time until they either get absolutely crushed or they totally run out of gas and you need your firemen to come in and close the game out give me something about baseball you mess from growing up or maybe for not that long ago that you feel like made baseball better made it more pleasurable to watch made it more interesting to follow I think the way the starting pitcher has become exactly that somebody starts to never finishes is in the long run hurt the game eight five five two one two for CBS that's eight five five two one two four two two seven what do you think maybe disagree with that maybe this is good for baseball I think you're hard pressed though to have that opinion in you'll give me something about baseball that you maybe really cared about her like fifteen twenty thirty forty years ago that is no longer relevant to the sport now our part of the game now and you think baseball suffers for it eight five five two one two for CBS it's eight five five two one two four two two seven my name date Philoponus the Pony Express on CBS

"Nineteen Eighty-three nine years after the church authorized, the ordination of women after serving as an associate minister at a large urban church in Atlanta. She found what she thought she was looking for serving as the rector of a small church in Georgia in the foothills of the Appalachians the five years later. She left to become a professor of religion nearby. At Piedmont college, an independent church related four year liberal arts institution, where she taught the world's religions most of the students hadn't had much if any exposure to religions other than their own the first time, I spoke with Taylor was in two thousand six after the publication of her memoir about being a priest and why she left her position as rector Nashes written a new memoir about how exposure to the world's religions affected. Her students and the impact it had on her own faith. It's called holy envy. Finding God in the faith of others in the middle of writing the book, she retired from teaching religion. But it left her with many questions, including what does it mean to be a person of faith in a world of many faiths, Barbara Brown Taylor? Welcome back to fresh air. When you're teaching the religions of the world with an open mind, then you're not saying one religion is better or truer than the others. One of your students said to you. We need I signed up for your class. If you're really a Christian. Then are you going to help us? See what's wrong with these other religions, what was your reaction to that? I I had to remember. I was the teacher and he was the student because I got riled up about that. Because I've worked so hard to to learn the jewels of the world's traditions, and that's what I wanted to present. But then I remembered I was the teacher, and he was a student, and I said something that I hope allowed him a gracious way to stay in the class or leave it which was well that it would increase his religious literacy and he'd find himself more comfortable, anywhere. He was in the world, whatever he chose to do for a living. But he ended up dropping the class or you're concerned about shaking the faith of your students by exposing them to other ways of thinking. I think that education does that whatever the subject matter. So yes, I did feel as if in the field of religion, I was in the business of making misfits better educated. More thoughtful misfits who would never fit quite the same way and their faith communities their families. Then I started talking to colleagues in other fields. And they said, yeah, that's what we do at college is people grow and change and don't fit where they used to. So I embraced that as part of my job. Give us an example of a typical question that your students asked a question that you got many times over the course of the years that you taught those questions changed through the years that I taught in the beginning, the most common questions were how do these faiths view Jesus. Why do these faiths say things contrary to the bible in it took a while to? To explain that. These faiths did not hold themselves to the bible or to Christian faith in Jesus. So. In the beginning. There was a lot of sort of Christian apologetic. But as the years went on and students began to know people of many faith traditions, and none in the high schools from which they'd come. The questions took on a quality of genuine curiosity a lot more. What are they doing over there? What does that statue mean why is the face on that deity blue? So genuine curiosity began to take over more in the later years of my teaching you're an ordained Danda Piscopo priest for years, you were the rector of a small church and a small community in Georgia. So what impact did it have on you and on your faith to not only expose your students to the religions of the world, but to deeply immersed yourself and lamb. What's the cliche? Those who can't teach. But it was a huge culture. Shock to go from being fulltime parish minister to full-time college teacher, everything changed what I wore in the morning where I parked my car, what was on the name plate on my door. So the respect you got. The level of respect actually increased, but we can ver- very very odd. I had much greater authority in a classroom than I ever had in church. And I think it's because I gave grades so. You didn't do that. When you were the rector of a church. No. But it would have been probably helpful. So, but but to get directly to your question, I couldn't run on my assumptions or stereotypes positive or negative of other traditions. It was time to get down to the textbook and to really learn more historically, politically theologically about the traditions. I was teaching because all of a sudden I was responsible, and I held myself to the golden rule which was teach these other traditions in the way, I wish they would teach mine in other words with respect with some degree of honor about the best and not just the worst. So one of the things that happened to you when you were teaching the religions of the world is you came down with a case of God envy. Expire you mean by God envy. I at least experienced holy envy. Which was every tradition that I visited either in the textbook, but far more importantly in person as students piled in the college van and drove seventy five miles to Atlanta and visited all kinds of communities. I would walk in and immediately find something to fall in love with the beauty of the space. The tenor of the discourse the teacher for the evening. The hospitality. We were offered. So I ended up being just bowled over by the beauty and kindness that I encountered every place I went and you found thanks to envy to appreciate in the religions that you studied and that Utah. So let's talk for a moment about Buddhism. You write that you take greater refuge in the Buddhist concept of impermanent then in the Christian assurance of eternal life. Would you elaborate on that for us? I will. And isn't it interesting? How many friends I have who are Christian and our Buddhist practitioners at some level or another. So I will very quickly tell you. I am no expert, but with beginner's mind to take even this central teachings of Buddhism is to learn that things change. And if I love the way things are going today, they'll change if I hate the way things are going today. They'll change something about that matched my life much better than the idea of an upward trajectory of increasing perfection. That would one day. By the grace of God. Land me in some eternal place that I could visualize. I don't know why the latter wasn't isn't attractive to me because it certainly is to lots of other people, but but the Buddhist view of my existence matched my sense of my own existence. So those teachings that the Buddha offered for verification by practitioners, I could verify them. You know, how you were talking about how you got more respect as a teacher, then as a priest in church because you gave grades. In the classroom. Idea of eternal life in heaven. Is kind of like the ultimate report card because heaven or hell depends on higher graded in a way. It depends on whether you've sinned, and whether you know. The extent to which you've changed your life and accepted God and done the right thing and everything it's it's the ultimate report card in a way. That's brilliant. Terry. I think you just explained why mainline churches are decreasing in attendance. Now is the the grading of heaven. And hell, I mean, I think for better the threat of eternal punishment or the promise of eternal reward is not filling churches that that. I know best. So that's a that's a wonderful parallel that I'll have to think more about that the fear and promise may be what keeps people very attentive. Let's say short break here. And then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining us. My guest is Barbara Brown Taylor. She is an ordained episcopal priest who was imperative ministry for fifteen years. She was rector of a small church in Georgia and the Piedmont's for over five years, but she left that to do. So. Something else, which is to teach the world's religions at Piedmont college and her new book is about how teaching the world's religions affected her students. But it's also a memoir about how it affected her and her faith. It's called holy envy. Finding God in the faith of others. We'll be right back. This is fresh air. This is fresh air. And if you're just joining us, my guess is Barbara Brown Taylor, and she's an ordained episcopal priest who left her work as the rector over church to teach the world religions at Piedmont college, her first book was about leaving the church and her decision to do that in order to teach. Her new book is about teaching. It's about teaching the world religions, and how teaching the world's religions changed your students and changed her and her own understanding of her own faith and the book is called holy envy. Finding God in the faith of others. So we were talking about things that you found very attractive in other religions when you are teaching religions of the world and studying those religions yourself, I want to ask you about Judaism, which you've found some beautiful things in as well. One of the things that you found beautiful was the chamois Hebrew prayer. Would you quote that for us? Yes. It comes from the book of Deuteronomy, and it is hero, Israel, the Lord. Your god. The Lord is one chamois being the Hebrew for here. And I was attracted to that. Because again in my tradition prayer was more about talking to God. Asking God for things and to flip it and to begin by wanting to hear just seemed a wonderful thing to me. What other things about Judaism? Did you find interesting or that sounds so weird doesn't it? What other interesting things about Judaism? But. That is a better word. Thank you for that. Yes compelling. I found extremely compelling. The teaching that belief matters far less than practice that Torah is a book of life of of how to live how to behave towards the neighbor the stranger how to worship how to make offerings how to live life and not about what to believe. I come from a tradition that has a very long Nicine creed to define what we believe and to come into to central Jewish practice where the chamois is just a few verses long and has largely to do with hearing hearing that God is one seemed to me. A marvelous thing how I lived was more important than what I believed or high would articulate my theories about the divine and another thing you mentioned that you found compelling with the idea of welcoming the stranger truly that was Rabbi Jonathan sacks who I pointed out to me Torah contains thirty nine commands to love the stranger in some form or another and only one to love the neighbor that sent me back to read all over again to read what? Tora. To read to read the commandments again. When I first began studying Judaism. And this was before I was teaching world religions, but to learn that in comparison with the ten commandments of which there are two sets in Torah. But to learn that there were more than the ten that Christians honored that there were six hundred thirteen set me off in search of the other six hundred three and quite a few had to do with the resident alien with the widow the orphan leaving food in the field for the poor to gather being sure that you pay laborers their wages before the sun goes down not taking somebody's cloak in barter or payment, unless she returned it every night for someone to sleep under their remarkable care for the marginal in Torre had never jumped out at me. Like it did when I found the other six hundred three commandments. One of the things that you did. When teaching the world's religions was take your students to mosques temples to Hindu temples, two synagogues. What did you want to do that?.

And then put those two together what nation is a bigger sponsor international terrorism than Iran, and the reason that you don't and the reason the FBI doesn't do that as we explained earlier, and the reason there wasn't a call for it for the president for Obama was because the president himself gets to decide what is national security, and what is best for the United States.
