The most dangerous military installation in the united states earlier this week army secretary ryan mccarthy announced that fourteen leaders at fort hood would be fired or suspended and he's also announced new rules for how commanders should proceed when soldiers go missing but whether these measures will be enough to change the culture at fort hood and military bases nationwide is where we begin today on the takeaway joining me. Now is lieutenant colonel. Rachel van landingham professor at the southwestern law school in los angeles and former judge advocate in the us. air force. rachel welcome to the show. Hi tanzi thank you so much for having me also with us is. John is may a reporter at the new york times and former naval officer. John thank you for joining us. It's good to be here. thank you john. let's start with you the With the findings that came out this week. What did the independent independent civilian review board here actually uncover that was happening at fort hood. Well i think one of the most significant things and covered was a problem with command leadership at multiple levels and that's reflected in the number of people who have been fired or who have been suspended in their duties and it shows how those problems with command leadership filtered down into a climate where sexual assault and sexual harassment was allowed in permissible rachel. What were your thoughts on the findings. It struck me that this was one of the most. If not the most pointed report ever issued by an ntt associated with department of defense that laid the responsibility squarely at the feet of the commanders. On in fact most striking conclusion was that quote a. permits there was a permissive environment allowed for sexual assault and sexual harassment at fort hood and who will allow permissive environment The command climate this permissive environment is just a straight up leadership failure In that symptomatic of a leadership failure is that there was significant under reporting. What really struck me tennessee. Can't tanzi no was that what came through was the utter fear and distrust of the system that fear of retaliation from fellow soldiers and from the chain of command most importantly and just significant deep distrust of the system that led to and then the concerns that fort hood already stood out and so i'd like to get into that in a moment regarding how fort hood already stood out and distinguish itself from other army bases itself Indeed the report show that fort hood already had over a thirty percent higher rate of or excuse me forty percent higher rate of sexual assaults from two thousand fifteen through twenty twenty twentieth and the rest of the army on there were right flags all over the place. There was the history of problems. Climate report service had reported serious issues already And yet nothing was done. It was the the star mission and silence from leadership that speaks volumes and john. Is there something about after we heard would reach just laid out there. Was there something about fort hood itself wear. This type of culture was allowed to proliferate. Well i think one thing that was specific to fort hood was a lack of qualified sexual assault or sex crime investigators Those are people employed by the army criminal. Investigate it sorry army criminal investigation command often referred to as the id and it found that that office was chronically. Understaffed under resourced and trained. A vast majority of their enlisted special agents. Were straight out of their fourteen week. Training course and they were not qualified to carry out investigations without supervision. It led to a line in the report where it said. Essentially that fort hood's investigative division was a training ground. So i think that that is something specific to fort hood. It may be the case elsewhere but to what Rachel mentioned it the report. The report specifically singled out fort hood for having higher numbers of sex crimes. Violent felonies assault battery charges drug offenses drunk and disorderly charges. Larceny desertions and people going absent without. Leave so. I think that you put all these things together. In you have an environment where even mundane crimes or problems are not able to be adequately investigated reported and then dealt with by leadership so rachel when we look at what was announced as far as a fourteen members of leadership who were either fired or demoted number of high ranking officials and soldiers including three top commanders. What does that tell us. I mean can someone actually be fired from the military. Well i think what it tells us that there are numerous individuals whose careers in the army in the military are effectively are effectively over And secretary mccarthy had did announce earlier this week that there are ongoing investigations as is the as is the par for the course went. Individuals are relieved from duty So appropriate very including criminal criminal consequences are needed to be taken regarding everyone that failed to just discharge their responsibilities here But here the consequences have to be commensurate with their individual failures. But that's there's a rub here because these are structural and cultural defects that this report is identifying. They're far larger than any one person of course criminal on and disciplinary measures are grounded on individual liability But they're justifiably has to be consequences for the grotesque. What i think protest dereliction in allowing a culture of permissiveness. I don't think hannah that for the family. That's going to be enough and it'll never be enough and it also shouldn't be enough for the army either to be frank nor the collective armed forces an entire system. I think helped contribute To vanessa's death. An entire system has helped vanessa. Gazillion In house has helped. Contribute to this culture on i report. Numerous times mentioned mentions a culture. And i think that really has to be nuanced and has to be spelled out so that actions can be taken but there must be systemic change I think that the this report must be lot must be reviewed and scrutinized by everyone who is appointed zeno from later in the united states military on in the army from the lowest four noncommissioned officers. Who importantly set examples for their troops to the company commanders to the service chiefs to the secretary of defense and to.

We're speaking with former supermodel and businesswoman. Kathy Ireland Kathy started her career when she was just a teenager and was one of the supermodels of the nineteen eighties and nineties. But in nineteen ninety-three she began transitioning out of the fashion industry and reinvented herself as a successful entrepreneur. Today her company Kathy. Ireland worldwide is estimated to have annual sales of more than two billion dollars. But Kathy has written the book on branding. She's also written a number of actual books and now she's out with her first novel Fashion Jungle. It's based in part on on some of her own experiences in the fashion industry including sexual harassment. And she's here to talk to us about all of it. They Uber Uber. Joining us. Kathy at thanks for coming to the PODCAST Thank you so much Roenick. It's wonderful to be with you. So most people think that the fashion industry is glamorous. Right but your new book. The fashion jungle is about the darker side of the business. So would you tell us a little bit about the book. The book it is a novel and it tells a story of four women and they become sisters but but a tribe the really A tribe of girls that come together and it's their journeys they each come from different backgrounds and we follow them in they Louis mistakes along the way it. It's a cautionary tale there's romance to thriller. There's political intrigue and it also Rachel Van Dyke and she is a New York Times number one bestselling author. She's amazing if not for her. I wouldn't have shared these stories. He's but our hope is that readers will take away the importance of understanding your value and putting boundaries Jason Place to protect those those values. It's been a while since you've been in the industry. So what made you decide to write about this now. I never planned on on it but when I met Rachel I met Rachel through a colleague and we just got to talking and I was sharing stories from forty years ago here in New New York City and as I was sharing with Rachel started weeping and I became angry at points and I recognize that many people they view the fashion industry they see the retouched image. The Glossy magazine covers. But they don't see what happens behind the scenes and Dan. I frequently have young women and young men come to me. I WANNA be a model. I want to work in the industry. I'm always feeling like the killjoy. Telling them what they need to watch out for and be careful of and protect check themselves and everything. So it's it's a cautionary tale. So the trial of producer Harvey Weinstein is going on in New York City right now and several actresses this is reported sexual harassment and abuse in the movie industry. So based on what you said and what we've heard about other industries. How prevalent is is it in the fashion industry? It's very prevalent in the fashion industry. And I mean the things that that my generation experience long before the metoo movement Every time there is an accusation there is a Predator and there is a victim. We we don't know who's who until all the facts and the truth comes out and I've experienced at both ways. There's a lot of vulnerabilities in the fashion industry. I think because we see this in sports as well when we're dealing with young people the potential to earn a lot of money power. There are people who will exploit seek to exploit so did me to change anything about the way you wrote the book. No not really because I I mean back then at the things I would have done differently back then I just dealt with situations. As they arose. There was an incident where photographer for push that line with me. So I ended up slugging and walking out and I encourage people to not be afraid to walk away. Walk off the job. No what you're willing to be fired for and Don't don't compromise your values figure out what your values are and put boundaries reason place to protect them. There were times I. I reported incidents of photographers today. What I would have done differently instead of going to an agent I would've gone to? The police. Didn't recognize that what a lot of these guys were doing was against the law because they were dealing with children so and it's It's something that we need to have our eyes open to so with this book you decided to make it a fiction book. Is there a reason you decided not to to pursue the nonfiction route with a book. You know it was. It was really out of meeting Rachel and this is the genre that Rachel serves and something that I did like about it. Is that many people who read Romance. Novels might look at the fashion industry. You with fantasy with just rose colored lenses and I think this is an audience that might not necessarily get the needed messages ages and the exploitation that we're talking about which includes everything from child rape to human trafficking. It goes on every free sector of business wherever people N. Life so it's something people need to be alert to. What changes do you think the industry needs to make to make it safer are for women? Alertness for one I think there there are some organizations that are coming together to support support models in particular. and that's fantastic I I serve on the boards of the NFL Pi and the WNBA EPA.

"Calling for the execution of the homosexuals. Which is also interesting here folks, the radical Muslims who stand by this practice have yet to be called into question for what they do advocate, but by executing radical homosexuals. That's crazy. But the homosexuals don't attack the Muslims better calling for their blood. That's craziness what Rachel Maddow and MSA NBC did. And by the way, after they did this piece on me. We laughed it off. And it's interesting to note that we called up MSNBC and said, listen, Bradley will find a New York on our dime. If we can do a live broadcast, and you can go ahead and confronts him with what he said in front of the world. And of course, they wanted nothing to do with that they want to set the talking points. They want to set the narrative they want to attack. They don't want you to respond. But what Rachel Maddow MSNBC did was take a radio clip. Take to ends of that clip omit on one minute piece from the center of that clip and then bring the two pieces together. And this is what they omitted from the center of the radio clip, and I continually reach out to the homosexual community is on this radio show, and I warned them which ones love this was under Barack Hussein Obama here, you have Obama condemning it behind the backs of the homosexuals, but to their faces he's promoting it. I say this said Bradley dean me, I said this to to my gay friends out. They're the ones that continually nitpick everything I say Hollywood is promoting immorality in the God of heaven in Jesus name is warning you to flee from the raft to come yet. You have the Muslims calling for your execution. That's what Rachel Maddow on MSNBC omitted from my radio program. That's a pretty big body of texts for Rachel Maddow on MSNBC to jump over. Isn't it at the end of a report? Rachel van pulls up a disclaimer from our website, which denounces folly by repeating our disclaimer is being disingenuous and insincere. Okay. Now to take it a step further because we didn't respond on may eleven two thousand eleven Rachel and MSNBC resurrect the same exact piece, and then slander my ministry on air. Rachel Maddow, accused me congressman Michelle Bachmann congresswoman, I'm sorry. Michelle Bachmann and others of being bloodthirsty. Yes. They said this and calling for the upping of the bloodshed of America's culture war since Christians weren't doing enough to kill the gays. This of course, was aimed at congresswoman Bachmann and her presidential campaign as well as myself by trying to ties together. New York Times did a full peace a page and a half on us, basically debunking MSNBC. Oh, how could you stand with MSNBC or Rachel Maddow, right, folks? This should come. As no surprise when this comes from the mainstream media as to why they would want to denigrate denigrate, my my mission. I'm sorry. Denigrate my mission and going into high school that's seen folks. They went after me because I was doing hundreds of high schools every year. And they had to put a stop to it because they were now playing the victims as they were acting out as the bullies because they were advocating propaganda in hopes that the American people would well, drink the Kool aid. And guess what they did. Now, I'm gonna come back, and I'm going to tell you exactly what the fallout was after Rachel Maddow, MSNBC omitted a minute from one of my radio programs trying to make it out that I was calling for the execution of the gays, and then I'm gonna play some audio for you from this transgender that didn't like it that other people weren't pretending in plain along with his crimes. The sons and daughters of liberty high. No you've heard that name before. But who are they and what does that have to do with the sons of liberty the sons and daughters of liberty? Our group of faithful men and women who have decided to do something about the problems that we see in America today there those who have made it a point to faithfully support our ministry on a monthly basis. They have said I am tired of hearing about all the problems is time for me to be a part of the answers. They choose whatever level of giving is right for them and are consistently part of a team that is reaching this nation with the truth and the gospel of Jesus Christ, and.

"That they had worked on where it turns out. There are a bunch of X men clones based on alien embryos. Who thought they were the real X men and ended up going off into space to right wrongs, the the writers of those stories had forgotten that the story existed. Really, everyone has forgotten those X men, but they're so great job Say there. there, there's literally out being deep-space superheroes. They're so good. How great concept is that. Anyway, Lilith pops back at the end of this story for a lot of Dana malls, so much Dana Ma God. There's a lot of Dana mom, and she she explains that this was a long rube Goldberg and setup to kill her dad, which only sort of worked but close enough. And now that Dracula is pretty much mostly probably dead storm won't turn into a vampire when she dies, and everyone will always live happily ever after. And kitty reverts back to kitty hood with absolutely no memory of what happened. And if they're nice they won't tell her. But they're totally gonna I mean, let's just lender. The issue. She really deserves to know. Okay. So there was some fallout from this annuals sometimes exist kind of isolated in time and space frozen in amber detached from the rest of the universe. Sometimes they have fallout across across lines. And this was one of the ladder set. So the montecchi formula is going to come back. In fact, doctor strange will eventually use it and kill all of the vampires who will stay dead until they get better again because vampires are fun also as we mentioned, there's the extra ninety two thing. Dracula will be back again, did you all kinds of stuff? For instance, he'll be told by cyclops that he should follow his heart. He will also lead a vampire army on the moon. Because Dracula is hilarious that was super comic called captain Britain and Mitch thirteen still light full. And I highly highly recommend it. I believe Lilith also joined the the howling commandos at one. During that same era. Oh, cool. She must have gotten along. Well with them. They could talk about how being enough next area type is really fun. And she could talk about how Lydia from the Beetlejuice cartoon had the best fashion sense of her wolverine at one point in a what if story will become Lord of the vampires in a in America where vampires may already control our nuclear arsenal. That's a great little side note, and that story and Rachel van Helsing. Unfortunately, as we've discussed will remain dead. Sorry. Marv wolfman. So that is king size annual number six. It is a delightful piece of early eighties history. You can find it in back issue bins. It's on marvel unlimited. If you subscribe to that, it's a lot of fun. What are the things? I really love about them early universe. Is that you can have these lines that are medically consistent you to the X men are about oppression. There about bigotry there about how to respond to that. And sometimes they're also about, you know, fighting Dracula or going to space I love that we live in a marvel universe. Well, we don't, but we try to every time we opened up. Our we live in a universe where there is also a marvel universe trade in comic book marvel universe where you can have just all of those settings side by side. It just when I was a kid that made everything feel so vast and exciting and unpredictable, and I enjoy that marvel there's no genre. That's going to be untouched. It's glorious. So that's the continuity. We've got we tried to keep it condensed down since we know we've got limited time, but that leaves us with about ten minutes. Four questions. We are researching are a lot of how we are able to pull out the information. We are on the show and answer the detailed questions. We are. There is that we know where to look that information up..

"None of the. We're dracula. Valid anyway point being we the readers know that something's up with kitty, it's becoming clearer and clearer that she has powers of her own. We still don't know why we just don't she wants to kill Dracula, and I guess all the other vampires in the world with the montage formula now kitty and colossus have chased Dracula away they've escaped the big fight as Rachel van Helsing using her. Vamp powers has been fighting everybody else. So cyclops decides that the shortest distance between two places is a straight line while technically occurred, if you're accounting for your service, but he doesn't and just blast straight through the floor and many many many floors into the catacombs. That's how you can tell that someday. He's going to lead x factor. Yes. X factor is well known for never going through doors, but instead making their own very violently. Yeah. They try so down in the catacombs. They find Dracula fighting colossus and Dracula manages to hypnotize wolverine and Rachel van Helsing briefly comes to her senses and begs storm to kill her which storm cat, but kitty. Gets her hands on the book and the process all of this. And she starts reading in even fancier gothic script somehow the Montasser formula Clark Virata window that one not that one. But she like you in that moment is cut off midway because night crawler somehow recognizes that this this spell, if she casts it will steal her soul. How does call her? No this. We don't know. He's he eastern European. He knows all about magic and mobs with pitchforks. And torches also to be fair. He was raised by Artis. Yeah. I was just like the kind of thing that you have nursery rhymes about when Margulis IDO says your adoptive parent. Oh, man. Those kids must never sleep. Yeah. No. They really don't. Oh, jeez. So apparently, yes this spell had kitty completed. It would have devoured her soul. Even if it would actually kill the vampires net. Clark doesn't want to see her soul devoured. He's buds with kitty. He thinks she's great. But kitty, isn't exactly herself. And in fact, at this point, she reveals, you know, who she truly is or at least who's been..

"We probably should have known because of the unnecessarily elaborate font that is not a waking world earth. Six one six mainstream marvel universe font. It's specifically storms dream and storm decides that she is going to go after Dracula because clearly the stream is a sign that despite his promises to leave for a loan. He's still got some kind of hold on her. So she's going to go. She's gonna go. Find Dracula and tell him what's up, but strange things are foot at the circle x because kitty Pryde watching storm leave then goes, and finds colossus doing homework and gets all creepy like sexy vampire hypnotizing him. She's not a vampire, but she does what's clearly like vampire hypnosis to look into my eyes. We're gonna go fight Dracula thing, I guess that brings us to shop for two in which storm flies all the way from New York to England because she's awesome. Yes. Oh, she's she arrives at Dracula's English castle. Because he keeps them scattered around the earth at reasonable intervals and also the moon and discovers none other than Rachel van Helsing, whom we totally skipped Dracula. Attacking and vamp arising in chapter one. Yeah. It's really unfortunate. Rachel van Helsing was like a major character to of Dracula and Chris Claremont who wrote the story as he wrote most of the amount of the seventies and eighties. Basically just said who is a character. That Dracula can convict him is for dramatic purposes. How about her? Marv Wolfman was really mad. He was he was he was really upset. He thought it was entirely unfair. Which it probably was, but yeah, so she's a vampire now a thrall. It's kind of unclear how vampires she has fangs and she's eventually spoiler going to be killed by by sunlight, she's a vampire. Okay. I'll only she's just a vampire who is. Also, a Dracula minion. I mean, if Dracula's king vampire, no question there. Yeah. And she had thought he was dead. Every Dracula story, by the way starts with everyone thinking Dracula was already dead, and sometimes he is and they have to reassemble him. Then fight him like castle Vania style. Yeah. The rib and the eyeball. Yeah. So Dracula does still have a hold over storm after what happened in uncanny x number one hundred fifty nine and it's quickly clear that she can't really do much against him. And she's kind of horrified and disgusted by this whole thing. How could I have found Dracula noble attractive, perhaps because he embodies everything I am not an Ken must never be. If you've never read it Chris Claremont comic number one. You should he's amazing number two that line right there, basically crystallizes what it is to do dialogue like Chris Claremont maximum drama all the time. It's great. So the reason that Dracula has gone back on his vow and called storm here is actually pretty sensible. He. He needs something stolen and well storm is a master thief. And he's what he specifically needs. Mead stolen is an ancient spell book book, which contains something called the montecchi formula. So what's the montecchi formula? The Montasser formula is a spell or possibly word problem involving trains leaving from opposite sides of the country that is capable of killing all the vampires in the world all at. Once. Dracula needless to say is really not a fan of this whole concept for a brief but more extensive exploration of the montecchi formula. You can read a lot of tomb of Dracula or you can skip straight to the exit ninety two ongoing series in which it figures fairly significantly. We're kind of biased 'cause we were in the x men ninety two mini series so advance. So the montecchi formula is in an evil book, and that's being stored in a fortress in Penn Darrow the fortresses built on a holy site. Which is why Dracula or Rachel van Helsing who's been similarly vamp can't just go get it because they would sizzle or whatever storm, however is only a little bit vampire eerie and is a mask. Thief. So she's totally going to Don, a stylish, Grint, catsuit and user, weather powers and skills to get past all the various traps and lasers and stuff. Well, she gets passed the traps, but she doesn't actually make it that far because she is stopped by shadow cat and colossus gentle cat, actually shoots storm with a crossbow. Now, you would think given the context we had previously that these two have may be figured out that storms gotten re Dracula it and are out to stop her. But that is not the case..

"I'm Jay editon milestone. And we are here to explain the X men because it's about time. Someone did. Welcome to episode two hundred twenty three of John miles explained the X men where we walk you through the ins outs and ret cons of comics, greatest superhero. Soap opera coming to you live this week from Vegas valley comic book fest. Yes. If you're here right now, thank you for being here. If you're listening to this in a couple of weeks time is very strange as you probably know from reading X men. Yeah. If you're listening to this in a couple of weeks, hopefully, all of our exhortations to vote will be aimed at the far future. Those of you here now, please vote it's really important. It's how we prevent the dark future that I was reading to you about earlier for those of you listening at home. There's there's a picture book. It's of days of future past it's very bad. We were doing read aloud before the battle started. But right now, we are here not to cover the days of future passed a picture book. We are here to tell you about the second time the X men fought Dracula. Because that's the thing. I mean, only the second time I love that. There have been so many like Dracula is one of my favorite weird marvel things because he's this dude in the public domain and finally they were allowed to have vampires and he's just everywhere. So we've got the universe with mutants and people who can fly in super soldiers. And then just like freaking Dracula and sometimes he lives on the moon. Sometimes. Okay. Speaking of Dracula, Dracula in the marvel universe was largely known in the seventies. From a comic called tomb of Dracula. It was written by a guy named Marv Wolfman who okay, Mark men's a great comics writer, but to point out that his name the guy that was writing. The Dracula comic is Wolfman. And that is great. Should we assume that his comments were very Dracula defamatory, Dracula was the main character, but also the villain? So kind of not much we need to know about Schumer Dracula, except that it was awesome and blade. I premiered there. It did feature a character named Rachel van Helsing the granddaughter of that van Helsing, she did some bad stuff, and she's going to be relevant to this story. Right. All you really need to know here is that. The van Helsing family is a vampire hunting dynasty. You also need to know a few things that happened in uncanny x men number one hundred fifty nine which coincidentally is the first issue that legendary new mutants artists Bill sink cabbage, drew, and if you ever wanna see Bilton cabbage doing marvel how style you could use it look that up because it is a surreal surreal thing. It totally is. Yeah. I mean, it's good. Don't get me wrong. But it's not like new mutants good. So let's briefly go through what happened there for some context in one thousand nine hundred two after the dark Phoenix saga, the X men. Consisted of storm wolverine colossus night, crawler and kitty Pryde the X men took kitty Pryde to Greenwich Village to meet up with her parents. And while they were there storm got mugged and bitten by a peculiar mugger who who decided that that their way of Mike her would be to bite her in the throat started acting strange and wearing a fancy scarf with the letter Dion it, and what what you know, nefarious business. Could this have been well kitty Pryde thirteen year old wunderkind that she was figured things out pretty quickly st-? Storm clearly had been bitten by a vampire, so kitty dressed up as a vampire hunter and tried to help and initially it didn't work. So well what we did. Find out though was that not only had storm been bitten by Dracula. She had been bitten by the unique to the marvel universe. And now, he's he's he's all over in new depictions. This is this is not a marvel universe unique representation, which this specific type of sexy. Dracula I've ever seen adequately in the movie Bram Stoker Stoker's Dracula where he's Gary Oldman. So just imagine him in this story as Gary Oldman from that movie with lines like comb to me woman us to dread. Embrace join your blood and life and soul to mind as Riddick kissed. I make you the bride of the prince of darkness. Dracula fun fact Dracula, and in fact, a large part of romantic vampire, mythology..
