Pope Francis fuels new speculation on future of pontificate

Lis Wiehl on Robert Hanssen, America's Most Damaging Russian Spy
"There's so many levels of sickness to this. And I want to be clear, speaking as a public Christian, when you're talking about evil, right? A lot of people, either they don't believe in God, they don't believe in evil, whatever. When you look at something like this, I want to know what you would call it if it's not evil, because here is a man who, I guess, I mean, I haven't said it, but to make things infinitely worse was ostensibly a dedicated Catholic Christian, in other words, it's kind of like the devil wearing priests robes. It's a stunning thing that so he wasn't just some secular person who doesn't believe in anything publicly he put on the face of a man of faith. So I have to ask you to just to go to the beginning. What do you suppose or who do you suppose he was that he would upon entering this life that he would go to them and do something like this? In other words, was it some crazy James Bond narrative he had? And I'm going to be a double agent. I'm going to be, what do you suppose was in his mind? Because a lot of people could get pulled over over time. Life gets tough. Things get complicated and you find yourself drifting. He goes to them. Why do you suppose that was? Well, he was as disgruntled employee. He thought that the FBI didn't appreciate him enough and that the FBI agents around him were trying to dull her. It's not as smart as he was. He always had to be the smartest guy in the room. We know people like that, right? Well, this is the Benedict Arnold story, right? I mean, if you want to go to the ultimate trader, Benedict Arnold felt he was being passed over. He was so amazing, and he was not being acknowledged. So that's kind of like the standard reason, right? That somebody like that, they think, I'm better than everybody. Nobody's acknowledging me. I'm going to get them horrible. Right.
The Battle of Good vs Evil Takes Place in Each Human Heart
"Joseph pierce, PEA, our C, E, the author of many wonderful books, the new one is called Benedict the 16th, defender of the faith. Joseph, we're talking about, you know, the evils in history and I think that it's important for us to say that at the heart of everything. You know it and I know it, it is a spiritual battle. So just because the Soviet Union crumbled didn't mean that wickedness had left the world. There's just as much evil in the world that just takes on different forms and what we have seen since the fall of the Soviet Union, of course, is that Marxism apart from China, which is its own story, but Marxism becomes cultural Marxism, and it affects us everywhere we look in the United States of America. It is at its heart, a spiritual battle. It's an ideological battle, but it seems to me that Benedict the 16th. He understood this. He understood that what he was at war with. Yeah, I mean, to me, John pulled a second, Benedict is 16th, and that other great figure who wasn't a Pope, Alexander Solzhenitsyn. These three men that they're almost exact contemporaries and they experienced the same reality that reality of secular fundamentalism. And what Alexander socialists said, it's really plays into what you just said, Eric, is that the battle between good and evil takes place in each individual human heart. So it's a spiritual battle, basically between the home of the art or the pub in man, the man on the journey who's called to get to heaven and homeless repair was 12 man who refuses the journey who wants to do his own thing. That battle takes place in each individual human heart and the club with Marxism, it actually plays to the proud man. It
Joseph Pearce Reflects on the Life of Pope Benedict XVI
"Talk to you about the life of Benedict, the 16th. By the way, how old is he today? Now, last week, he celebrated 95th birthday. So he's had a long, long arduous life. That's hard for me to believe that he could be 95, my goodness. Now, so let's talk about his life. Obviously, German, his last name, ratzinger, I assume in your book, you go through his life from the beginning. Yeah, basically that the book is a part of the fee and an overview of the legacy. So it's not a conventional biography or Benedict the 16th, but it does tell the story from the beginning from his childhood where of course he grew up as a child under the tyranny of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. So he knows what totalitarian secularism is. Because he experienced it firsthand. As did of course St. John Paul the second with his experience of communism and the Nazis are both. So these men know the dangers of the absence of God in human affairs because they experienced it firsthand as young men. And
Why Joseph Pearce Wrote 'Defender of the Faith' on Pope Benedict XVI
"Decidedly literary person and a man of great faith. His name is Joseph pierce. He's been on the program before talking about many books. His books on Chesterton and souls and eats it in so many others. He has a new book out about someone you may have heard of, Benedict the 16th. I think you can tell from the name that he was Pope. Remember, Benedict the 16th, a biography titled defender of the faith by our friend Joseph pierce, Joseph pierce, welcome back. Great to see you. The greatest year again, Eric, it's been some time. Good to see you again. It has. And I just have to say, congratulations on the book. It's a beautiful book. I may not be a Catholic, but I am a Christian and I have been a huge admirer of so many Catholic Christians through the years. Obviously, Chesterton at the top of the list. But Benedict the 16th. Always, in awe of him, his leadership, his intellectual abilities, his fierceness as a defender of the faith. So it seems appropriate to me that you titled the book defender of the faith. What was it that led you, Joseph, to write this biography? Well, like you, Eric, I've been an admire of Benedict XVI for many years since time when he was cardinal ratzinger prior to that. We need to remember that as well as the relatively few years he was poked. He was St. John Paul the second's white hand man for a quarter of a century prior to that. So this man was basically the most powerful man in the church apart from St. John Paul the second for a period of a third of the century. And he's a time I think of a restoration for the church after what we might call the madness and miasma of the modernism of the 1970s where the world where the church or at least certain members of the church were seduced into trying to become like the world to sort of follow the world and you and I both had my chance to turn and Chesterton said we don't want a church that will move with the world. We want to charge that will move the world. And I think this St. John Paul the second and Benedict the 16th moved the world rather than moving with it. And there's a crucial difference. I think you're quite right. And I

Patrick Coffin on His Claim That Pope Francis Is an Anti-Pope
"Eric always an honor to be back with you, sir. Thanks for having me. Well, it's a joy. And you're provocative thesis is what? Compressing a lot in a few words, the thesis has to do with evidence that I've been not really paying attention to. And until I started to really drill into it, that Pope Benedict XVI on February 11th, 2013, when he announced his abdication. Only abdicated partially in there. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Let me sum up your thesis, because I thought you were simply going to say this, and then we're going to get into the details. All right. Your thesis is that Pope Francis is not the Pope. He is an anti Pope. Now, you've got to explain before we get into why you a faithful Catholic think it's possible that Francis is not the Pope and an anti Pope. You have to explain to us non Catholics. What in the world is an anti Pope? Okay, taken from a different angle. An anti Pope is simply a man falsely believed to be the Pope. Doesn't mean anti Christ doesn't even mean he's a bad Pope. It's just someone who's not directly able to hold the office of the Roman pontiff. A nonprofit posing as Pope. Not necessarily posing. He may feel himself to be the Pope. His subjective psychology is something I can't get at. Nonetheless, the non Pope. In the shoes of the fishermen,

"Today, we feature interviews with two people nominated for Oscars for their work on the Jane campion film, The Power of the Dog. Composer Johnny Greenwood, and actor Benedict Cumberbatch. The film is nominated for 12 Oscars in total. First, we'll listen to Terry's interview from last month with Johnny Greenwood. He was known as the lead guitarist and keyboard player for The Rock band radiohead when screenwriter and director Paul Thomas Anderson asked him to write the score for his film there will be blood. That score was described in Rolling Stone as a sonic explosion that reinvented what film music could be. Greenwood wrote the scores for Anderson's subsequent films, including phantom thread and the master, which opened like this. Greenwood also writes a lot of film music that is more avant garde. But some of the avant garde music is influenced by his love of baroque. He studied classical music when he was young, played in a youth orchestra and has been a composer in residence at the BBC concert orchestra. You can hear his music in three very different recent movies. Paul Thomas Anderson's newest film, licorice pizza, which is set in the 70s, Spencer, starring Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana, and The Power of the Dog, which is set in Montana in 1925. In the beginning of The Power of the Dog, two brothers who own a large cattle ranch are hurting the cattle.

On the series Sherlock, what was it like for you to first experience that level of fame? How did it compare to what you thought fame would be like? I don't think I really knew what fame would be like beyond my mom being recognized in the supermarket every now and again, but I was not prepared for it. Nothing prepares you for it. There's no school or learning to be done there. It's just one of those things that when it happens, you have to kind of negotiate and I still find myself doing that day to day with the shifting circumstances of my life and my visibility recognizability or not. And I just remember that particular night when Sherlock dropped that there is still alive audience the water cooling moment was instantaneous. It's very early on in the days of Twitter and Twitter to sort of blew up and I was trending. I thought what the hell this trending now. I know a trends are used to have yo yos in their robes and skateboards or whatever at school that's a trend, but so it was just a new language and a new way of receiving feedback. And it was immediate and to the point that I expected after watching it at the producer and director's house, a writer's house sorry, mark gates was there with me with Sue virtue and Steve Moffitt's house who collaborated in creating produced character show. I expected to walk out into the street for journalists to be absolute out of the helicopters. Everyone's coming out their front doors going. That was amazing because it was so hot online. And yet you go out and it's just the cold night and getting the cab and go home. And then slowly things began to change. I remember stepping out of a hair appointment when I got my head died and cut just before the second series was shot. And it was like the whole street came to a standstill, but something like, oh, sure look, and then it just, you know, very bizarre.

I've never taken a huge interest in it because for me it's always been about a very close knit circle of individuals. I don't come from a very, very big family. I never met either my grandfather's, my grandmother's an age when I was young. My parents had me quite late. So my connection to my past, I learned about as much about it or I'm reminded as much about it were made aware of it being present as much about it by the description that you just gave.

"That. What's really fascinating about bringing a character feel Burbank to life, you're really looking under the hood of it, you're examining the causality behind that toxic masculinity. Within that bracket though of behavior, labeled toxic masculinity, I think there are genuine non performative elements that he has just grown into being. I do believe that he is that branch man. I do believe that he is that capable he's a master of his crafts, whether it's the banjo or whether it's whittling or whether it's the stuff that isn't the film I marguerite taxidermy. He really is profoundly gifted. I think where it becomes toxic is where he has a need to protect things in a world. And hate on a world potentially through that defensive protectiveness before it hates on him. And I mean, to talk about the landscape a bit for me, that was just an absolute gift. Our production designer grant major builds a really masterful set. I mean, it's an extraordinary piece of reality, where there was absolutely nothing. And that was integral to filming and using the 360° of nothing which in Montana near where the films actually located. It sadly isn't the case. But logistically very difficult to film there, but for an actor to be supplanted in that landscape with grant set. I mean, everywhere I looked, I had thought I had him in the weather I had him in the sound of the wind in the grass. I had him in the movement and the breath of the cattle, the hair playing on the horse's back, which is actually a detailed in the film that Jane picks up on with Ari's cinematography and I just felt utterly nourished by the placement of where we were shooting at my big fear was once we got to a studio in Auckland. I'd be having to clink across a car park in spurs and furry chaps. Just feeding ludicrous like I'm at some kind of Comic-Con convention of power of the dog rather than. Anything is real is the lived experience on that set on location was. And then the pandemic happened. And we stopped and our dreams became supercharged as the collective consciousness at this massive shockwave sent across it. And we came back to the work not only with a renewed vigor and focus but just amplification of gratitude to be able to work. So at the same time, you're in power of the dog. You're also in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is a movie in the Marvel Universe and you played Doctor Strange. And you have your own Doctor Strange movies and this is like you're a character in the Spider-Man film. You just finished the latest or about to finish the latest. Doctor Strange film. The Marvel Universe seems so different from, say, the Jane campion university directed power of the dog. For example, you stayed in character when you did you roll a fill in the power of the dog. And you know you kept your accent. Now you could keep your accent when you're doing Doctor Strange because it's a New York accent, not a British accent. But I'm thinking how funny it would be of all of the characters in a Marvel Universe movie, all the superheroes stayed in character. They're on set. I mean, that would just be kind of ridiculous..

Extorting the sense that's often a coordination between four species I was one moment when we were driving cattle and there were horses, there were men there was a silence at times but whistled or talked to communication between dogs and those four species working together was just something profoundly affecting and realizing that the connection to landscape was really as informative as any of the specifics of braiding say were whittling or whistling loudly saying or all the horse riding skills or any of the other kind of attributes this character has at his disposal and, of course, the banjo playing his musicality, but to marry the brutality of being able to master the hard work in that hard landscape in those hard times with this amazing delicacy and sensitivity. I thought that was at the core of his character. In the novel and in the book, Phil rarely bathes in the novel it specified he bathes once a month in the creek, and when the creek freezes over in the winter, well then he just won't bathe. So in trying to really get with the character, you stop bathing for extended intervals. Well, while making the movie, I assume that was well making the movie. But that must have been a really icky experience for you. I mean, once you start to smell yourself and you realize people are definitely smelling you and not acclimated to the smell like you are. I mean, that must have been very uncomfortable. And maybe even a little embarrassing? In rehearsals, I did it for about a week before my family turned up in New Zealand where we were rehearsing and shooting the film. And I did it because I didn't want that to be something they had to endure. And I thought, you know, this is fine. This is about me getting used to it and Jane and maybe a couple of other people during the rehearsal period in that time. But then she'd say things like, oh, let's go get some sushi. And I'd be like, oh, come on. Now I've got to walk out into the real world, not in character. Possibly being recognized and carrying this kind of biohazard level heft of stink around with me. That's not fair. I get I could see the tweets like Benedict Cumberbatch really smells. Yeah, yeah. Well, yeah. I mean, you know, yes, it's enough to be self conscious of it in any normal circumstance that knowing the heightened one I find myself into someone recognize. But I think where it's essential and where it really helped was on filming days. I watched a lot more than Phil did put it that way. But I would not have my clothes laundered, so I did carry his body odor with me, the minute I put those clothes on, I was him, I could smell him.

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. My guest Benedict Cumberbatch stars on the new film, the power of the dog. The film was named one of the ten best films of 2021 by the American Film Institute, appeared on many critics ten best lists, and won this year's Golden Globe for best movie drama.

You can also see cumberbatch now in Spider-Man: No Way Home as Doctor Strange, and he's just completing work on the new Doctor Strange movie. Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar for his starring role in the film the imitation game, based on the story of Alan Turing the mathematical genius who was instrumental in breaking the German enigma code in World War II. Cumberbatch has played other real people like Stephen Hawking and Julian Assange. He's famous for his role as a contemporary version of Sherlock Holmes in the British TV series Sherlock. The power of the dog was directed by Jane campion, adapted from the novel of the same name, and is set in 1925 in Montana. Cumberbatch plays Phil, who along with his brother, played by Jesse Plemons, owns a cattle ranch. Film is hyper masculine. He skilled at cutting the testicles off cattle, herding cattle and breeding leather ropes. He rarely bathes. He's also a bully. He even insults his brother and cause him fat cell. When they're taking the herd to market, they stop at an inn where they have dinner. They're served by a young man, the son of the woman who owns the inn. He has a clean white linen towel over one arm. The way you might see in a fancy restaurant, not a little inn in a tiny town. His manner and the linen make him seem effeminate to fill. While the young man is serving the table where fill his brother and the cow hands are.

"Within the priests. Thank you for bringing this up. I i could imagine that. This parallel was intended by gregory. The great because he very often compares benedict with abraham. Because abraham is the father of the faith in away bennett became a father of many many monks benedict left as we said his parents his hometown. and all what could bind him very similarly to abraham and that opened him to this deeper understanding of god. And then you need angels like romano's the priest like mckinsey who touch your life so thanks. Thanks be to god that this priest were there and that he should that he didn't think easter sunday no really worked enough. I should have but take much should take my nap. Known also compelling as you bring up the different examples of experiences in scripture that are similar in nature to this that it shouldn't be quickly dismissed as though it's some type of literary device that is used to make a point in because i think if we reflect in our own lives have we not had these types of encounters when you're open to receive them those unexpected surprises. Yes absolutely and we have. This is why so important to teach our children and to introduce children in all of this as thorough as possible in order to prepare them for this experience. This is what the liturgy actually and this is what the church wants us to do to celebrate in this way in order to be ready if god in a deeper way wants to touch us with this respective mystery you know as been we go saw to church and sometimes it's just a routine can become an empty an empty routine easily as you can imagine you know when you do it so often and we don't have to be afraid about this because we could see it as a preparation for this very day and god wants to This close to us in deep away. What all these things are about. And this potential only to been addicted potential anti christian you go to church may be during the holy tweet on year by year and maybe there are years where you just don't understand what this all is about but you're faithful and there is good very good because the day might come when god really wants to show you in a deeper way Why he died for you and why he raised you up. The bark of saint peter the great ship of the church with any sailing vessel. You itself it is justice ship but you need the full and active participation of everyone serving on that ship to make it work. And that's is that. What the full and active participation the interior experience. That's what we bring to it exactly. This is exactly it this interior yes or understanding leads us to the active participation. Absolutely right this is what the second vatican council one wanted to bring us. And we have this experience in our monasteries very much if if the monks just kind of depend on the monastery and the community they won't they won't grow into the into a deeper relationship with christ and so this active participation is really ask from all of us and this is what saint benedict learned at this point. Final thought. yes we could ask ourselves. What makes me thankful when. I think about our church. What did i receive from her. Could also meditate on the question. What should be my contribution to help make this church. Even more lively could ask the lord to help me to build up this church in to renew it on my part and we could also ask ourselves where. Where do we see problems. And how could i in a respectful and gentle way address. Those problems finally let us continue to pray with the church wonderful. Thank you so much father.

"Gifts after that they said grace and began their meal when it was over they conversed some more and then the priest went back to his church. Think that's a beautiful story. This encounter with a priest in the kafe still. The story is a little bit shocking. Because how could it happen. That benedict saint benedict could forget about easter. He was on the journey to follow god. And jesus more closely. How could he forget about the feast of easter and also the reaction that we read here. How benedict responded to the priestess. Kind of strange. One must admit that saint benedict in his rule has distinct and balanced way to speak about priests. There are actually tool chapters in his rule that are dedicated to this topic. And maybe i can't read them to you to summarize them in. Chapter sixty benedict says the admission of priests to the monastery if any ordained priest asks to be received into the monastery to not agree to quickly however if he is fully persistent in his request he must recognize that he will have to observe full discipline of the rule with out any mitigation knowing that is written friend. What have you come for. He should however be allowed to stand next to the abbot to give blessings sent to celebrate mass provided that the abbot bits him otherwise he must recognize that he subject to the discipline of the rule and not make any exceptions for himself but rather give everyone in example of humility. Whenever there is a question of an appointment of any other business in the monastery he takes the place that corresponds to the date of entry into the community at not that granted him out of respect for his priesthood and in chapter sixty to the priests of the monastery saint benedict's rights any abbott. Who asks to have a priest or deacon ordained should choose from his monks one worthy to exercise the priesthood. The monks ordained must be on guard against concede our pride but not presume to do anything except what the abbot commands him and must recognize that. Now he will have to subject himself all the more to the discipline of the rule. Just because he's a priest he may not therefore forget the obedience and discipline of the rule but must make more and more progress to god. I guess you can hear what sink bendix intention is. He must have seen priests in his community. Who kind of spoilt the community in the sense that they've found they have the privilege to go their very own ways that they would not be under the abbot under the rule under the discipline of the rule because of the priesthood and in this regard benedict is very strict interesting. So he he does not. You can feel that. He has a great appreciation and laughed. What's the eucharist into the priesthood. But still as as monasticism goes as the monastery goes. It doesn't matter if you are a priest or not first of all you are a monk. This is kind of the first vocation. I read this to you. In order to show that he has this balanced View of the priesthood. And now he in his biography saint gregory. the great. who was the pope tells us the story that a priest is coming and dining with saint benedict and again the astonishing fact. That benedict had forgotten about the date of easter. What's going on here. My assumption is that benedict had reached a point in his life where he was even in a way detached from the church. The church's task is it to proclaim onto to make sure that there is this feast of easter the solemnity of easter. So the calendar is so to speak a thing that is Task of the church to set the calendar say this is easter so when he has forgotten about this dated means in a way he has forgotten about the church and again this might sound shocking to us. How could he as a sane but in a way and and shortly i will show this. It was necessary for his puto journey. Why was it necessary. Because now he was able to grasp what church really means. What faith really means from inside from its tunnel source and origin. In other words he now does not celebrate easter only because the charts tells him to celebrate easter kind of as a in obedience to this regulation of the church but rather he grasps. The mystery of easter itself could describe this transformation as going from analog experience to an originally experience. What do i mean analog means you have experience and you need a transmission. You have learned it. It's an outward knowing so it's like when parents explain to their children things of the faith so the children learn it and.

The is interesting father rates is that when you actually visit the place where he stayed in Rome, the home that. His father provided for him. It actually was in a rather affluent portion of that time period in Rome. It's right on the banks of the Tiber. Just beautiful and yet. It today is still venerated the room where he was in because in this spot is where his prayer. His his deepening awareness they. Is it not said that it is the place that is considered the area of his first grace essentially. Yes. And this often goes together. Times of determined and temptation and Times of grace. So as we know, he didn't like it to be room although everybody who wanted to make career would probably like to be in. Rome, he just didn't like it. Probably because he experienced this contrast receiving this grace. Getting an idea about. Who God is, who got the father? is his real father kind of similar like what Jesus said experience when he went away from his parents in Jerusalem and while seeking for his real father's homes, he ended up in the temple and in Mary and Joseph for kind of upset about this, you know. So. But here we see this is a this is something that every human being has to go through. If we WANNA grow closer to the Lord That we have. To, get that, we have to get detached. From our father from our biological and and earthly father. And this is actually what Jesus recommends us to do whoever laughs father or mother more than me. Is Not Worthy of me and whoever laughs son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. I'm not sure how serious we take this word of. Jesus. Benedict did he understood I? I have to laugh God. The father more than my father. This probably didn't mean that he hated his father he just said. No I at this point I can do what he wants me to do. How extraordinary to when you? Look forward over the centuries that there would be others who would respond in a way to affirm that whether it be Saint Francis or even Saint John of the Cross who would teach the importance of that detachment along with so many other says, yes. It is a basic feature of our Christian spirituality. And I think it pertains to all of us. If we still as adults. Do and pursue whatever father wants us to do. We don't live our lives and that can make sick. And.

If he couldn't save his plan or his riches at least perhaps he could save his family and his reputation he could tell the world that he wasn't a simple turn coat that he had only wanted to end the war he wrote a letter to George Washington insisting that Peggy was innocent cintas any wrongdoing and should be conducted safely back to her family and Philadelphia. This was perhaps the only selfless act of Arnold's owns life after absolving peggy to Washington. He feared that he would never see her or their seven month old son Edward again they would grow up in the house. Peggy's father who hated Benedict Arnold at least they would be alive and safe as Arnold wrote those words Peggy was covering his escape with a prize winning fit of apparent psychosis at one point according to valiant ambition. She pretended to hallucinate that there was a hot iron on our head and only George Washington could remove it when Washington tried to do you just that she accused him of being an impostor bent on murdering Edward although it's impossible to know if peggy actually was hallucinating. It's most likely she was an exceptional actress doing just what she promised her husband distracting the general for as long as possible after the vulture arrived in New York City Benedict received an officer's commission in the British Army though the plan to turn turnover west point was ultimately unsuccessful. General Henry Clinton was convinced enough of Arnold's efforts to reward him with six thousand British pounds but he wouldn't be retiring rich as he had planned Clinton Expected Arnold a fight with all his might for the British army and truly earn his officer's commission meanwhile John Andrei spent the following weeks in prison and become a celebrity his own guards found him charming and his valet became so attached to him that he wept upon learning that Andrei would soon be hanged on October second seventeen eighty eighty Andrei was executed. He faced his death bravely.

"benedict" Discussed on Espionage
"Now back to the story on August twenty four th seventeen eighty thirty nine year turncoat Benedict Arnold received the long awaited letter from his British Handler Adjutant General John Andrei it had been nearly a month on the since their last correspondents in Arnold was beginning to worry that the plan was off despite the fact that he'd already gained command of West Point and begun to sabotage the fort. If the plan fell through Arnold was sure he'd eventually be found out and killed unless the British won the war some other way I after decoding the missive he learned that British General Henry Clinton had reacted with enthusiasm Husiac to Arnold's proposal and even agreed to a twenty thousand pound bounty for the surrender of West Point. He requested only Arnold Guarantee. The capture of three thousand soldiers during the invasion arnold was happy to stop dispersing the fort soldiers to other posts. It was less work for him and less suspicious to keep them at the base. Now with all parties agreed on terms. It was time to talk specifics planning the British invasion was far too sensitive to be done in letters arnold would have to see the John Andrei in person and not that Arnold especially wanted to see his counterpart. Andrei was young handsome air dight charming. Everyone met Arnold was an acquired taste. Even for his closest friends Benedict Arnold was still still bitter about being passed over for promotion to Major General at age thirty five John Andrei had risen to the rank of adjutant general at age thirty not not to mention the danger meeting at an American fort would put them both in if anyone recognized Andrei as a high ranking British British officer and saw him speaking to Arnold they might both be arrested on the spot nevertheless arnold bit the bullet and on August thirtieth seventeen eighty ask Connecticut Assemblyman William Herron to deliver a coded letter to the British on the pretense announced that it was a business matter he needed to communicate to a British merchant herron was suspicious and instead of delivering a letter he brought it back to Connecticut where he handed it over to one general Parsons Parsons who is now in Arnold old old role as head of the Connecticut militia simply ignored it although he recognized that it was written in code he assumed that Arnold was was in a secret business deal parsons new Benedict Arnold as a war hero and considered the idea that he might be disloyal ridiculous. LS Parsons wrote here off as Paranoid Benedict Arnold never even knew about this narrow escape four days later on September Third Arnold got another opportunity to send a letter to the British Mrs McCarthy. The wife of a prisoner of war was traveling south and agreed to take a letter into the city this second message found and it's recipient. John Andre opened the letter to find a carefully crafted insult from Benedict Arnold camouflaged as a strategic plan. Dan Arnold suggested that Andre traveled to west point in disguise as a spy named John Anderson Arnold it had even gone so far as to notify soldiers at nearby outposts that they should expect an informant named John Anderson and that he he was to be conveyed to the commander but John Andrei wasn't a man who could be easily disguised. He was known and despised despised for his cruelty on the battlefield. According to valiant ambition Andrei once ordered his soldiers to run down a fleeing defenseless defenseless group of American soldiers with their bayonets. Few survivors would remember John Andreas face forever. Andres ferocity in battle made him a favorite of General Clinton a brutal man himself. Clinton refused even consider Arnold Arnold's risky suggestion that John Andrei travel in disguise instead Clinton proposed that on dray where his own uniform and carry a white flag according to military convention an enemy soldier waving a flag of truce must not be fired upon on that's been the case since at least the second punic war which ended in two zero one. BC few military traditions are as is universal and far reaching even today. The use of a white flag is protected by the Geneva Convention traveling under a White Flag John Andrei would be safe that meant coming up with a cover story that would allow Arnold aboard a British ship displaying being a white flag without arousing suspicion enter Beverley Robinson Build Arnold's west point home and already one the few British officers trusted by Henry Clinton with a secret plan to take West Point Robinson could ask for a meeting with American General Arnold regarding the status of his property on the Hudson. John dray would accompany him. It may seem a little bit strange for an enemy combatant to request an update on his property while it's occupied by an opposing general but among those who'd grown up in the colonies both British loyalists and continental soldiers hope that the war would soon end and when it did presumably gentlemen like Robinson would have their the property restored to them. Clinton and Andrei can post a carefully worded letter Arnold politely declining his suggestion that Andrei disguise himself as John Anderson instead at noon on Monday September eleventh the they instructed him to meet Robinson at Dobbs Ferry on the east bank of the Hudson. This landing was in the neutral ground and would be a safe safe place for all parties to speak Arnold was reluctant to accept this change this meant he would have to cross the river which which was a dangerous task in itself from Man. Without healthy legs ended men's sparking suspicion in one of his boatmen if he wanted his twenty thousand pound reward. What choice did he have so on September eleventh seventeen eighty thirty nine your old benedict arnold boarded his barge and set off for Dobbs ferry this required sneaking out of the house without alerting varick but arnold managed to depart while his aide was occupied. He was eager to discuss the surrender especially because it would give him another another chance to confirm how much money he was to receive and win but almost as soon as he left the dock. Arnold old was forced to turn back British gunboats were patrolling the Hudson River as was often the case generally they just exchanged fire with American vessels off the shore of the neutral ground but upon seeing the American general alone on his personal barge they turn their guns on him nearly blowing arnold out of the water arnold swiftly returned to the American controlled West shore with his heart heart pounding in his chest. It was the closest he'd come to death on the water. Since the battle of Valco island in October of seventeen seventy six there was no way he could make his rendezvous with Andrei now and no way to send the British a message Benedict Arnold Arnold spent the rest of the day with his boat pacing up and down the West Shore. He hoped that the British officers would realize he couldn't cross and sail over over to the American controlled side of the river to meet him when darkness fell without any apparent attempt at crossing by Andrei Arnold grew the angry and scornful. He vowed that he would never again be the one to put himself in mortal danger just for a meeting he was already taking the greater risk by betraying his country but unbeknownst Arnold General Clinton had recognized the different strategy would have to be employed for a meeting on September Fourteenth Clinton revealed the West Point Plan to British Admiral George Rodney Name and enlisted the help of his fleet. It was it calculated risk. Double agents were everywhere but the time for swift action was at hand and Clinton believed he could trust Rodney Clinton sent Andrei and Robinson out to meet Arnold together again but this time aboard the H M s vulture one of Rodney's sixteen gun sloops as it happened September September fourteenth seventeen eighty was also the date of Benedict Arnold reunion with his wife and infant son Edward Hagey had traveled live from Philadelphia and was eager to see your husband after so many weeks of separation rather than wait to meet at Robinson House. The couple met at the home. Tom Joshua Heads Smith the naive attorney to whom Benedict Arnold was introduced by Robert. How the thirty one year olds home overlooked hammer straw straw bay located on the Hudson River about sixteen miles south of west point despite the peculiar features of their relationship their their age difference Peggy's political agenda and their looming debt peggy and Benedict Arnold were an affectionate couple especially with their first child child now smiling and babbling on Peggy's lap. It was a rare moment of domestic bliss for the Arnold's Peggy.
