How are we doing compared to everyone else so as canadians. We need to be very grateful that more than fifty percent of our population has received the first fox nation. And that is extremely high when you compare it to low middle income countries if you are living in high income countries such as canada the likelihood is that you have already got your cove in nineteen vaccine or will soon get one sadly this is not the reality for millions of people living in several low and middle income countries more than half a billion vaccine doses have been administered so far guess what three quarters of them have been used by the world's richest countries which means that only zero point one percent of covid nineteen vaccine does have been administered in low income countries.

"What's going on guys. It is tuesday april twenty-seventh and today we are talking about why you shouldn't be stressed about elon. Musk selling two hundred and seventy two million dollars in bitcoin yesterday. Oh whoa of woes. We were betrayed like benedict. Arnold come back to life to give away the heart of our country like the red wedding. Game of thrones but even more violent. We were betrayed. At least that's what you would have thought looking at. Bitcoin twitter yesterday but to understand this. We need a little bit of context. This entire leg of the bitcoin bull market was sparked by tesla's february announcement of one point five billion dollars of bitcoin treasury. It also gave us one of the most iconic a bitcoin space. In retrospect it was inevitable. It put the world's richest man and the internet's most prolific memes ter- in our corner it gave other massive corporations some pause that perhaps it wasn't just a micro strategy doing this bitcoin treasury thing. Of course tesla buying bitcoin. Also flared up some additional tensions. Climate fudd has been significantly worse since the announcement instead of seeing ilan's involvement as evidence that bitcoins energy impact has been overstated and fearmongers. It instead proved to be confirmation too many that ellen has been full of crap about his commitment to the environment from the beginning you on. Musk is in spite of his great wealth.

Thirteen Awards Movies to Watch Out for, Oscar Do-Overs, and More From the Mailbag
"Before we get into the mail couple things over the weekend hit in the world of movies. First thing i want to talk to you about is the thing. I spoke to the directors of this documentary series about which is tiger tiger woods. Now you know as a friend of mine and podcast partner that. I am an avid golfer. And a fan of the sport gulf you are not a fan of the sport golf though your partner is and so golf is in your life but not truly of your life. What do you know about tiger woods. And what were you expecting heading into this documentary. Well in addition to being one of the greatest golfers in history isn't in history and certainly one of the best athletes of the twenty first century. That the correct century yes which i do know about because athletes at that level become pop cultural figures and i am interested in pop culture. Even if i'm not interested in my husband lecturing me about what type of iron tiger woods is using which is like a personal hell that i live in on a daily basis so i know a lot about him as a pop culture athlete and then obviously he has a pop cultural significance all of his own because of the events that he went through in the public eye at the end of the last decade and really honest life for the last decade. Yeah and so. I think that this series is an interesting gambit on. Hbo part it's clearly inspired slash based on a book that came out in two thousand eighteen by jeff benedict and armond katayan. And it's an attempt to make sense in real time of probably the most significant american athlete barring lebron james and michael jordan i would say of the last twenty. Five years maybe serena williams in that conversation. I think it's a very short list of people that do for. The tiger is kind of hanging with in the last quarter century and the film is tricky. Because they only aired part one thus far part two is next sunday and so i don't think you can necessarily spoiler film like this but it depends on. What kind of your you are if you're very engaged in the tiger woods story and his life. I don't think that this film necessarily will teach you a lot about the events of his life. There are not a lot of revelations. I think there are some emotional revelations there are some there's some I guess the matic framing that. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily put together if you weren't deeply entrenched in his story the movie especially the first half of the movie takes great pains to portray this father and son story and to show earl woods. Father as the kind of dr frankenstein at and making tiger woods into this kind of frankenstein monster for better and for worse in that he's incredibly powerful but there's like all kinds of emotional danger in his life I one thing that struck me as i re watched part one last night and i watched it with eileen. It's there's a lot of golf highlights in the first half. And there's there's there's not. There's not a lot of scandal there's not a lot of there is some psychology and there is a lot of sort of personal background about how tiger grew up and who he became. But because he has this sort of monochromatic mono-syllabic experience in the world where we just. He very rarely showed himself to us. Basically what you get is like ninety minutes of an extraordinary highlight reel dovetailing with the story of a father and a son and what they mean to each other. And i think if you're a casual observer my my instinct was. Is this going to work for people now. The second half is different. Can of worms. And i don't wanna spoil it for people but did in the first half. Did you find yourself having a hard time entering the story. I did also watch this with my husband. The aforementioned gulf maniac and the soundtrack to watching this was every time golf shot would be show. Its accuracy like you know it was like a little gallery of one. And he was doing it under his breath and then i was kinda. Are you aware that this is happening. And he was like sorry and then he just kept doing it at a lower volume. I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds

"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.

"benedict" Discussed on Discerning Hearts - Catholic Podcasts
"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.
Vatican Report Places Blame for McCarrick’s Ascent on John Paul II
"A Vatican report has found that two Popes and top officials from the Catholic Church ignored allegations of serial sex abuse by the former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. After hearing 90 witnesses, the report found that Popes John Paul the second and Benedict the 16th. We're told of McCarrick's assaults, but chose to believe his denial and the American bishops who'd concealed information. Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Para lean expressed sorrow for the wounds caused and said the church had already introduced changes. In the last two years. We have taken significant steps forward to ensure greater attention to the protection of minors and more effective intervention. Soto avoid the repetition off the errors off the past. McCarrick was forced to resign and expelled from the priesthood last year. The first cardinal ever to be defrocked over sexual
Vatican report finds that John Paul II knew of allegations against ex-Cardinal McCarrick
"Into X Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has found that bishops, cardinals and Popes downplayed or dismissed reports of his sexual misconduct. The 400 page report determined Pope John Paul, the second was warned about McCarrick but made him archbishop of Washington anyway. Pope.

Around The World On 50 Bucks With Christopher Schacht
"Hello Travel Nerds, and welcome to the extra pack of peanuts travel podcast. The show that teaches you how to travel more. While spending less I'm your host Travis Sherry and joining me today as someone who has hitchhiked across oceans who started off on a four year journey around the world with only fifty dollars in his pocket and came home with a wife and who is a fellow twin Christopher shot author of around the world on Fifty Bucks Christopher. Thanks for joining me a huge. Welcome. To Be Masao, I am very excited to chat with you and I my trial. We say that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. But today you're going to be the one who's the expert in that because you have certainly Done that on your adventure, but before we start talking about all this. I saw that you were twin mentioned somewhere on one of your sights and you said your twin is the exact opposite of you. So explain that how is he the exact opposite view? Okay Festival. From the parents and I have blonde hair blue eyes. I'm about one one, eighty, three centimeters I think that's something like six foot. Tall and my brothers about ten centimeters about three inches smaller taller than me. And but then this is only the outside parties, Brown hair Brown eyes but from the inside, I'm sort of the person who wants to go out and explore the adventures type of person and teas such a comfortable home drawn guys. So he would rob a die Ben leaving his nice comfy home and bad and toilet. So yeah, actually this was what his concerns that I was going on this world trip. You said, okay maybe you don't want to miss this opportunity for all the money in the world, but I wouldn't WanNa do it for the money in the world so tell me why are you gonNa go to the toilet while you're out in the woods and all that? and. We're going to sit here on my is heated. Toilet. Yeah. It's crazy right how you can have the same upbringing same parents and yet be completely different especially when it comes to personalities. I tend to say in those times is benedict. You know that I'm five minutes older new. So once you will hit my age, we'll talk again. Okay. That's an awesome line. It's interesting because you know obviously twins or not that uncommon, but don't be a ton of people. And I'm a twin myself. Now I have a twin sister and we are we are very much different in in most ways like I think people who know US say all they're pretty different, but then every once in a while. And I feel like I'm either acting like her I say something I'm like, Oh, I sound like my sister. So is there ever I? Know you say your exact opposites but are there any times or any situations where you do see yourselves sharing certain things? There's traits. Totally. So especially humour when we will in the same class, only one glance to each other would be enough to just burst out laughing and everybody else. would be like what's going on This is so crazy, and until until today there is no other person on this planet who I laugh with so much like with my brother. So that's really amazing. I love this guy even though we are completely different we get along very very well. Yeah that is awesome and yeah, people always ask me well, how what is it like to be a twin? How's IT different? I don't know because I don't know what it's like not to to end right so. There's also the strange telephone thing is creepy. Mind conduct going on that cannot really explain alycia twin for sure for sure. So let's talk about your journey a bit a journey that as as your brother put it, you would not give up for all the money in the world and he wouldn't go on for all the money in the world and you left on this journey fifty dollars in your pocket no plan. So when you first laughed how long in your head, did you actually think it would last? So, I left on the first of July two, thousand thirteen and at that point of course, all my relatives wanted to know Christopher how long are you going to be gone for and I? talked them off as saying well I don't know if I'd give you a deadline. Then you would say probably after two years crucify you said you're going to be back after two years. So now where you are. and. I when I avoid that I will need as long as I need. So no timeframe at all. That's usually what I said brushed them off like this but secretly I I actually thought about two years and then later on it turned out to be far because it's definitely not enough to get once around the world without
Moussa Cisse is going to Memphis
"See say five star prospect originally in the class two thousand twenty one, but now I'm class. Two Thousand Twenty announced this afternoon that he is committed to the University of Memphis. Pippen Hardaway's Tigers over offers from Georgetown Georgia. Florida State Lsu and Kentucky for those unfamiliar. I guess you can on some level. Call him a quote local product because he did spend the past year at Lausanne collegiate school, which is seven miles from the Memphis. MEMPHIS campus, but he's not really a local product. He was born in West. Africa moved to New York, in two thousand, fifteen played at Saint Benedict's prep in New Jersey played at Christ King in New York, then relocated a Memphis, the plate laws and this past season led the links to a state title, one Mr Basketball and the state of Tennessee average eighteen point, four points, fifteen point, three rebounds, and a ridiculous nine point two blocks per game, and now we have college basketball season. He says he'll play for the Memphis Tigers. norlander break it down. What do you make a penny? Hardaway lending a five star center in two straight recruiting classes last time. It was James Wiseman this time Mussa. Break it down Oh. Yeah, here's what I got a question for you I. Mean Here's here's was Gary Perez? Is tweet on Wednesday afternoon breaking all caps course. This was an all caps breaking the way I don't i. You know what expected to go to Memphis. I. Don't know if all caps was warranted there. Can you take me inside the thought process versus not in a? Regular grammar versus going all caps in that moment, please. Young Mussa say follows exactly ten people on twitter. I am one of them, and so I wanted to make sure he he saw how much emphasis I put on his commitment. How do I just know that two four six years from now if and when Lucy say is? Able to earn a consistent NBA paycheck, and perhaps it's even a player of of importance in the NBA. Gary Parrish will never ever ever forget or forget to remind people that there was one point in time and Mussa CCA followed ten people on twitter. And he was one of them. I honestly don't even understand it. Because like he used to follow a lot of people on twitter, I noticed and. One of them was not me, and then suddenly he cut almost everybody, but added me I don't really even know the connection there, but. I want I knew he'd see the tweet. And once I knew each the tweet I wanted to I wanted him to experience in all. Caps tweet obviously as as faithful podcast, listeners will know. Also one Moussa, see say. was tutored by your own son so I think. That might also be an influence. Parish working behind the scenes to get it done for Memphis. You've gotta admire actually ironically enough this happening in a week where parish is not on his local radio show. The conspiracy only strengthens. Okay, so here's what here's my question for you. you say the six eleven likely one and done talent averaged. Eighteen point four points, fifteen point, three rebounds and nine point two blocks last season pick memphis over Georgetown. Tom Kriens Georgia bulldogs Kentucky and Lsu. My question is. Who the hell is this guy planning? Nine point two blocks a game what? I have not I have. It's private school basketball in the state of Tennessee so? Took it over people who look like my oldest son in some cases like the blogging. What after another like I don't know I never been to a laws and basketball game and I've never even actually met. Say although it is true, my son and Mussa. Were classmates in my son to tutor him in in certain classes I. I don't even know if say knows that. My son is his classmate. He might, but I don't know that I've never I've never even had a real conversation about Mussa with my son. Other than so, what kind of young man is he and was like really nice? Really Really Nice guy like you know doesn't walk around like some big time. Basketball player I the only other times. I would talk to myself about Moses. Like Hey, did you see that dunk? That was on instagram last night or something like that? Because like fans are crazy, and at one point, the two schools involved in the Memphis in. RECRUITMENT MOST HEAVILY WE'RE MEMPHIS IN KENTUCKY and I'm like it doesn't matter what happens I. will somebody connected to one of those fan? Bases will blame me for it if HE GOES TO MEMPHIS, Kentucky fans it'd be because I pushed into Memphis somehow through my son, and if he goes to Kentucky Memphis fans, it'd be like see parish eight says all the modern salads like I'm not even getting involved. The only time my son had ever been asked about Mussa as recruitment. That I witnessed was one of my friends recently asked him when they were over at the house, and my son's answer was he always talked about? Georgetown but I don't think he's going to go to Georgetown and that was the extent of it. So he was right. Maybe my son's got a future and being a recruiting analyst, right?

"The No. Vena to Saint Benedict. Day Five. In the holy rule seem benedict you have said. The second degree of humility is when a man loves. Not his own will, nor is pleased to fulfill his own desires, but by his deeds carries out that word of the Lord, which says. I came not to do my own will, but the will of Him who sent me? It is likewise said self will has its punishment. But necessity wins the crown. The third degree of humility is that for the love of God. A man subject himself to a superior in all obedience, imitating the Lord of whom the Apostle says. He became obedient unto death.

Birth of the Urban Legend
"Today I am going to take a look. At myths and one in particular that is huge a myth that is regarded debated by perhaps perhaps millions of people and it starts in Rome. No one could talk about the Catholic. Church without mentioning. Vatican City. Balance City is an independent city state within Rome. Italy is under full ownership sovereign authority and jurisdiction of the holy. See the area that occupies represents the smallest city state in the world coming in at one hundred ten acres with a population of about a thousand. It is ruled by a type of theocracy minister by the pope while the Holy See dates back to earliest Christianity. The Independent Vatican City state on the other hand didn't come into existence until February. The Eleventh Nineteen Twenty nine this is different from the papal that occupy most of Italy from seven fifty six to eighteen seventy. The Vatican walls were built to keep out pirates during the ninth century. Pirates were pillaging much of southern Italy when they sacked. Saint Peter's in eight forty. Six Pope Leo. The fourth decided he needed a little extra protection. A thirty nine foot wall was constructed around Leone City. An area which included the current Vatican's territory gradually when the threat receded. Many gates were opened in the walls. It was shortly after the wall was built but no connection. Eight fifty five to eight fifty eight that a new pope came into power. The story goes that a lady pontiff rained for a brief time in the ninth century. Disres- was a young woman who disguised herself as a man and entered religious training distinguishing herself as a scholar. She rose through the church ranks and elected Pope John. Eight the year eight five. She went onto rule for two years. Her gender always concealed but he flowery holy robes. Her secret was only revealed. Eight fifty eight when she unexpectedly went into Labor during a papal procession. Some accounts say she died in childbirth while others claim that her and raged followers dragged her behind a horse and stoned to death. Either would've been an appropriate response for the Times before you scoff at the idea of a female pope. Let me lay out some facts. The story of a female pope surfaced in the thirteenth century. Chronicles written by a couple of Dominican Friars then in the fourteenth century. She was mentioned in a book about famous women. Her image eventually graced paintings sculptures and Tarot cards for a short time. She was included in a collection of papal bus in. Italy's CNN Cathedral. Some historians dismissed Pope Joan as a myth that we go. Here's our myth citing that her supposed rain overlaps Pope Leo fourth and Pope Benedict third. Some scholars believe that she was had been expunged from the church history. One ancient scholar provides her nationality place of birth length of her pontificate as two years. Seven months and four days. Then there are some who say she didn't die immediately after giving birth instead she was deposed after her confinement and did penance for many years after her death she was buried in. Estonia were her son held the Office of Bishop generally today all sources a pope. Joan are thought to be nothing more than an urban legend yet. There are hints of a female Pope's existence in both art and architecture on the pillars and Saint Peter's basilica in Vatican City seven sculptures showing a woman's facial expression while going into labor can be found but wait in the oldest surviving com copy of the pump typical the official book of biographies of Popes during the early Middle Ages Pope Benedict. The third is missing completely then are medieval coins that show the likeness of Pope Jonas Elias. Yes there are and this is suggesting that she may indeed have existed. Science had proved that these coins are not fake when archaeological find has documents that Pope Joon US crown. Louis the second of as a holy Roman emperor eight fifty six. Although the available evidence seems to cast some doubts regarding the existence of Pope John. It is likely that some would continue to believe that this figure was real whether it's a piece of fiction or history detail. Pope Joan will most likely on until absolute physical documentation surface. It finally and the

"benedict" Discussed on Your Last Meal With Rachel Belle
"Marco Collins is a big fan of breakfast best eggs benedict pancakes bacon and eggs. But how did those foods become the designated breakfast foods. We'd all kinds of things for lunch and dinner but breakfast purpose is entirely. Its own thing my whole life. I've been hearing you know. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I wanted to know where that came from because when I started looking around it's just a marketing scheme right yeah. It was the whole first generation of people who invented breakfast cereals. That's Bala he's a history. Professor who specializes specializes in food history at the University of Pacific in California. He says before the fifteenth century people didn't really eat breakfast and when they started to they ate the same foods they ate for dinner. You know people used to eat leftovers from the last day or some bread and I think as people increasingly began to work in places is where they didn't live convenience became a real matter and the perception that this stuff was healthy. And you needed it to fortify you. For the day was entirely a marketing scheme. You can look at the stuff. Throughout the twentieth century. They told us was healthy to eat. Spinach and Popeye himself was invented by the spinach. Marketing Board you know and the I did. You should drink orange juice first thing in the morning while the Orange Marketing Board figured out that so I would take much of twentieth century nutritional advice with with a grain of salt because it was all promoted by people trying to sell you the stuff in nineteen forty four general mills launched a huge ad campaign for grape nuts. The tagline was eat. A good breakfast do a better job and the radio. ADS said nutrition. Experts say breakfast is the most important meal of the day a Ha- that is where it came from so people made shirt eat breakfast and they often ate cereal because they were told it was healthy and it used to be back when it was first invented. At least that was the intention back in the day John Harvey Kellogg and his brother William Keith. Kellogg were running the sanitarium in Battle Creek Michigan. And that's where where the seventh day adventist church was also originated. That's culinary historian. Heather aren't Anderson author of breakfast a history. The Kellogg's were seventh day adventist S.. Who believed that health was connected to righteousness Dr John Harvey Kellogg who was a disciple of Sylvester Graham inventor of the original healthy Graham cracker issued issued caffeine alcohol spicy foods? Sugar White bread meat. Graham and Kellogg believed masturbation was the greatest evil and eating healthy bland foods and only whole grains would quench all sexual desire and they would get these really wealthy clients who would kind of come to do like the predecessor. Assessor of like Hashtag clean eating and they'd come stay at these sanitary which acquaint like more strict versions of day. Spas where where you go and get on this clean Diet Kinda hit the reset button on your body. Do all these cold water baths and exercise regimes. And you know weird enema. Does it was all part of this program that wealthy people would go subscribe to you and one day the Killa guys were in the kitchen cooking some cereal and had to run off when they got back they realize they had left the stove on and so the the cereal which had started out Moshe. Was this really weird. Hard substance substance and there was so much product. They didn't want to waste it so they thought they would try to figure out what they could do with it. And so they spread it out onto these rollers enrolled into these very aretha sheets and it Kinda broke up and crumbled and so they fed it to the people and we'll staying at the sanitarium and they liked it. And so the Kellogg boys these were like onto something. The problem was that the corn and a lot of grains they go rancid so fast because of the fat content. So William William Keith. Kellogg suggested that they add some sugar and salt to it to act as a preservative but John Harvey Kellogg was adamantly opposed to that. He didn't WanNa add any preservatives. He wanted to be very healthy and low sugar low salt and so they really could not see eye-to-eye on this at all and it ended up causing this permanent fraternal rift. That they never mended. Will Keith Kellogg went on to start the Kellogg's company which you know we know of. Is the cereal company today today. And then John Harvey Kellogg State of the Sanitarium and and it's funny because the there is so much sugar in Kellogg's cereal products and not even just the kid cereals but cornflakes flakes are so high in sugar that you can't get them using your wick benefits because they exceed the maximum sugar allowance to be covered by women infants and children benefits. What's that first serial invented the kelloggs cornflakes back in eighteen? Ninety four and it was dry and bland just the way they wanted it to be and it had to be soaked. acton milk to become edible but it really caught on and by nineteen o three there were one hundred cereal companies in Kellogg's town of Battle Creek but it wasn't until nineteen twenty eight that will keith. Kellogg had his next big hit. That is when he perfected rice krispies and by the Nineteen Forty S. When women started going off to work while the men went to war they they needed a way to easily feed their children and the ads pointed women too cold cereal? This started the whole culture of eating process. Quick to prepare breakfast in America so I think most of us have not all of us have grown up thinking. Cereal is totally normal breakfast but if you think about it it's not actually a great way to start the day it's just pure carbs and sugar. There's no protein to keep you fall. There's nothing to feed. He'd your brain. It's basically desert or like having the entire breadbasket when you go out to dinner but the cereal companies have conned into thinking. It's a good healthy healthy breakfast if I could have one take home lesson for your listeners. Is that they should explore the idea of having super breakfast. I'm team soup when it comes to weird breakfast foods. Tell me more well besides just puzzle. They would just a great hangover cure fuzz. Great Hangover Cure fuzz. One of those things you can just this get nine in the morning here in Portland Oregon All the Vietnamese restaurants opened early. And it's usually I see like little old men eating FAA at nine in the morning and and so I started kind of getting my head around this idea having breakfast soup and now it's like pretty much my most standard. You know breakfast choice. I mean we awesome spicy soup. Kimchi stew for some noodle soup. And I just feel good all day like hydrates you because Ken said exactly the same thing I went went for about three years eating noodle soup for breakfast and got a book out of that but it was every single day I would make a different noodle soup but I stopped that just because I got kind of bored with it so usually what I'll I do. I would say maybe fifty percent of the time. I eat pizza for breakfast which I make on the spot. Sometimes they don't have a lot of time. I'll use a flour tortilla and put cheese on it and sometimes tuna or ham or that stables or something like that. It's just wonderful for breakfast so you will bake a fresh pizza in the morning for breakfast. Yeah this morning I didn't. I actually had only because I had a decent baguette from the bay area. You probably know acme bread and it had found some duck pattase so I had hatay and cheese and all of for breakfast. This morning was good. I am one hundred percent team can and heather. I have always preferred eat leftovers for breakfast. Like Leftover Spaghetti or leftover. Chinese food is the fast but our culture tells us we're supposed to eat eggs and bacon toast and cereal for breakfast because that is a normal thing to eat. But it's actually an American thing. It's not a human woman thing in Japan. The traditional breakfast bread is me so souped rice fish pickles in Israel. Typical breakfast is cheese and a chop salad. Some smoke smoked fish. Maybe some shock Shuka and the fact that we're conditioned to eat three meals a day with also invented by our culture and we think it's physiologically necessary also. We think you can't be healthy in function. Unless you have something for breakfast you can train your body to do anything I think in terms of like evolution. We'd probably probably didn't eat regular meals for hunters and gatherers. Whenever they had sued at hand or hunted something in captured it? They ate a lot and then they'd probably fasted for for for days and whether it's necessarily healthier foods or not but we certainly can go a long much longer than we think with food where we're conditioned socially to think. Oh I'm hungry angry because it's lunchtime and they better get something that's a good point. He never thought about that before. Like the ancient man was not snacking probably or they. He was snacking all the time time that was having little nibbles here and there. And that's another argument that hunters and gathers mostly gathered. They don't come except on rare occasions. I'll get a big kill. But they'll the eating berries and nuts little than plants that they gather all throughout the day. Let's get back to our breakfast. Boy Mr Marco Collins Marco has made a name for himself in nineties grunge music and as much as he loves reminiscing about that time. He's been less than enthusiastic to take jobs that. Focus focus exclusively on that so he's not really interested in hosting your ninety nine show or whatever you WANNA call it at key expe- he can once again play whatever he wants. and Are you glad to be a little bit divorce from all of the ninety stuff that you're always associated Ma'am I am. I mean you know what I look back on that time and I. I think it was an amazing time. It means a lot to a lot of people. My head is not there. I'm not listening to old grunge records anymore. I'm more interested. Didn't what the scene is doing now. And what kind of music is is coming out tomorrow.

"benedict" Discussed on Your Last Meal With Rachel Belle
"Towner afterwards and he just looked at us like he was in his forties to said. That was the very best benedict I've ever had and I was just like. Who is this kid? Can we get more for them to come in here. You mentioned that he probably gets beat up a lot in school and be. He was wearing a little suit with professorial patches on the arms I love it. Yeah the little suit. Julie got hired as a cook back in two thousand and one when she was just twenty two years old she became a co owner in two thousand five and now now she's the big boss and she says that she loves coming to work every day but glows was opened by a woman named glow who continued to wait tables until she passed away in two thousand. I five is that glow the picture up of the kitchen. Yes that is low than his glow. It's like a headshot. Yeah it's totally headshot yeah. She was fantastic. She was a kind of an old school server where she was like. Get a little snotty at you. If you gave her you know some attitude but was just had a really big heart and was always really welcoming. Here she helped a lot of people over the years and so we kind of intern do the same thing and we. We help out a lot of the local homeless population. And you know just try to do whatever we can over. The last several years in Seattle locals have watched the city change drastically every month literally. Thousands of people have moved into the city for tech jobs jobs and a couple of years ago. It was one of the fastest growing cities in America so US locals have watched with tears in our eyes to put dramatically. But it's true though it sad to watch all these. He's buildings get demolished and businesses. Go Out of business to make room for new housing so close feels extra-special. It has some of that old Seattle Grit. It's workhorse that has seen the city transition into a grunge Mecca and then into attack Mecca. And I asked Julie what the place means to locals on Capitol Hill the day after after the election in two thousand sixteen the next morning we came in here and I think that that one single day really said to us how important we were because we. We're all just sort of dumbfounded and I don't want to you know I mean I'm not here to talk about politics but I mean you know we were. We were just sort of like in an emotional state and we came in here and we had discussed over and I kind of looked at each other in the morning we walked in and both of us just Kinda almost started to cry when recite each other and we were just like should we close like I. Can we handle this. This is really dark moment and then it was like just a few minutes before seven. Am when we open and there are already people lining up outside and they just kind of kept wandering in the everyone does seem seem rules sambre and it was just like okay. I guess we should be here. Seems like people want us to be here on that day. Just got progressively busier in a way. that Wednesday's aren't I usually. And we could just tell the people needed to feed their souls and that they need to feel better about things and this was was the place that they came to do that and we we realized by the end of the day that you know. That's why we're here. We're here to feed souls and to make people feel good. It's clear that That were important into them. And they're important to us as for the history of eggs benedict it's fuzzy and in my opinion not interesting enough to get into detail on so there are a handful of hotel hotel restaurants that claim that they invented it starting in the eighteen sixties. But the English muffin wasn't invented until eighteen. Ninety four in America by the way it it is not actually English. It was invented by an English person. Who did his take on trumpet? and a true eggs benedict must be on an English muffin so that is just a little history. After the break the real history lesson begins and it is so fascinating and far more interesting than the history of Eggs Benedict Senate Act. We're going to talk about the history of breakfast in America and the super strange origin of American breakfast cereal. I hate to see this word. And I'm GonNa it twice but breakfast. Cereal has its roots in preventing masturbation. I've seen it for you. So you're the next segment. This is a tease okay. Hey we'll be back coal commerce.
"benedict" Discussed on Your Last Meal With Rachel Belle
"Collins what would your last meal be my last meal. I'm a huge fan of eggs benedict. So my last meal would be eggs benedict with a slice of tomato added and fantastic holiday. Where do you go? Where do you like glows? That's my favorite eggs benedict in the city. Eddie is close and you you know. They kind of image themselves as just a dumpy little diner but you go in there and that food is amazing. You know the eggs he's benedict. I have a running date with a buddy that we just meet their like once a week and have eggs benedict. It's fantastic. It's just the holiday is like really lemony. It's just it's wonderful. I like you don't pronounce the s on the on your so fraud holidays. I don't know that dumb Americans call. That's we cut honky colleague. Dave I go to close. I feel like glows is one of the last holdouts in Seattle. Don't live here We've had so so many places close and so much demolished in this kind of anglos is still there and it and it looks the same. It's just like an old school. I love it man I just forget. Get their food is so good there as benedict. You don't have to add it sliced tomato. It comes with a slice. Their eggs benedict is a plus. So let's go layer by layer so you have yep ham ham slice of Ham slice of tomato the egg and the holiday holiday and do you like potatoes on the side. What are you sure? Sure I like Hashbrowns hashbrowns is my thing but that's not necessary sometimes whole do fruit like a little bit of fruit. So you said in. You're not to me. That eggs benedict is really important to you. Why it's important to me because first of all I'm a breakfast guy? It's like the perfect breakfast. You get some veggies veggies in there. It's a little fattening with the the holidays. But I don't know it just does it for me. I feel like I can eat eggs benedict anytime of the day. Not and not just a breakfast thing. It's like breakfast dressed up a little bit with a little cloak made a holiday. Have you ever made it at home because it taking it every day right the whole in days right get it right either way. Yeah just can't. It's really hard to make. Good holidays and poached eggs hard to do to kind of fall apart in the water right right better at that though. You gotTa have a little bit of a circle a world pool going in the boiling water and then you sort of just dropped the egg slowly. It's become a science for me. I'm pretty good at that part when you were a kid. Where you into breakfast at dinner yes? I'm into breakfast dinner enter down. I love breakfast. pancakes blueberry pancakes. I think that breakfast should be available any hour of the day. Edi where you go in fact. It really pisses me off that. McDonald's stopped serving their bacon egg and cheese biscuits at ten. Am everything was only available until ten Renan any suddenly made breakfast back now. You can get egg mcmuffins all day. Yeah but not the bacon egg and cheese biscuit. which is the jam? When I used to eat McDonald's like in high-school College I was never at all no time that you're like you feel weak and you're like I'm just going in there for a damn quarter pounder with cheese? She's now I want some of those fries although I did have TACO bell a couple of weeks ago for the first time in years you have the chicken sandwich at Popeye's is that chicken sandwich line. Is it worth the hype. It's fantastic and the reason it's fantastic is. The chicken is super moist. You know I was thinking of the Howell. Why is this getting so much buzz like? It's just fast food justice. Yes just fried fast food and they don't overcook the chicken so the chicken is super voice but the key to the whole thing are the pickles. Plus it's a big hunk of chicken you know and they have these brioche rolls that they use news. It's really kind of fancy I gotta get in there man. I was hard. I wasn't going because of the lions but now it's kind of children are a little dope. It has ensured that at all go in the morning. Go for lunch only because at dinner. They're normally out. They get shipments every single day. The only reason I know this is because I've talked to one of the employees there. That'll that'll do about the chicken sandwich because the hype and you make friends with everybody every right. I'm the guy that takes. The bus talks to everybody do. Do you tend to follow food trends. Because that's kind of a little trendy thing right now but I'll tell you what I have not jumped into pokey. I knew you were GONNA say that. That's so funny. I had a feeling you're going to say that there's a place across the street and I love Sushi. And everybody's like why haven't you done pokey love poke and I think it's just I need somebody to hold the hand with it. Yeah walk me in there. Tell me what I'm eating. There's a lot more ingredients in pokey. I went in that place for the first time last week and they were playing Christmas music sick. You know because it was Christmas time they were playing that. We're we're all that dog one and I was like I don't know if I trust this place like do you eat. Poke it a place. That's playing dog. UGH Barking Christmas music. God you're killing me. I kind of liked it. Actually things to Marco. Last this weekend I drove down to the only Popeye's in the Seattle area it is unincorporated King County technically which I noticed because fun facts Seattle Band Styrofoam Foam many years ago. And we got our little tiny cups of mashed potatoes and Colson. And it's like wait a minute. Why is this? Why do we have straws Strasbourg? Those are banned in Seattle. It's like you take one step out of the city and it's just a landfill a garbage dump of stuff but it was worth it for killing the earth the and driving my car a little bit farther than I usually would for fast food. That chicken sandwich is so good. I am the billionth person to say it. But you know what I I am the billionth person to say it it Super Juicy Jacuzzi that's me. It's super juicy. It's crispy it's a big fat piece of meat. And you know when you see a commercial for fast food or you see the picture of the Burger you're about to get. And then it shows up on the trade. It's like squashed squashed and flatten tiny. This is not that it looks just like the picture. Totally worth the hype just to sum it up. What are the kids say? T- YSL T.. I I'm not a cool youth. Call young a young. We're awesome. This is what we do we aucoin phrases and then we completely forget. Okay so back to Marco's last meal. He wants eggs benedict with a slice of grilled tomato from glows a diner in Seattle's Capitol Capitol Hill neighborhood. Blows is an institution open since nineteen eighty-seven which doesn't sound like that long ago. Oh but in Seattle that is the equivalent of two hundred years old. It's a tiny little no-frills spot on a busy street in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. There is often a line nine sneaking down the street and global bills. Marco's ultimate wish. You can get breakfast anytime you want. Because they only serve breakfast on the weekdays they're open seven to three and then on the weekends we open at twelve. A one eight am on Saturday morning. I guess you would call so it and then we stay at midnight and then we stay open until four. PM working an overnight diner that opens at midnight. That's a whole different scene than when you're open seven seven. Am to three PM so stupid. Certain people on that shift or do you have to have a certain kind of personality to deal with all the people. Yes kind of. There's a lot more Rowdy behaviour that takes place on the night shift More of the crazy stories happen on the night shift. There's a lot more bodily fluids that it ended on the night shift So you have to have some crew with a strong stomach clean that that is owner and Cook Julie. Rice men glow serves up a pretty classic diner menu there scrambles rambles Omelettes. pancakes and French toast and five variations of eggs benedict. You can have either. The Classic Ham Avocado which is the X. Californian Ex Florentine which is with Spinach Spinach X. Blackstone which is sauteed spinach and Bacon and the smoked salmon. Nick which speaks for right. So all of the bennies come with a slice of grilled tomato for a little bit of assiduity says and they're homemade holidays or marco likes to say holiday. How you make holidays and you're so good it's just really about that arm effort because you just got a whisk it forever and I think a lot of people give up early and you end up? Having thin hollandaise sauce. Julie says some places US instant holidays from powder or from a mix but it glows. They make everything from scratch. Holidays is a classic mother's mother sauce. It's just melted butter. Ideally clarified butter slowly. Whisked into egg yolks and then hit some salt and a squeeze of Lemon for Tang and brightness S.. The trick is getting it to a modified just right and keeping it at the right temperature. So the sauce doesn't break. Julie says twenty percent of glow sales come from Benedict's index. It is definitely a top favorite kids. You know they usually come in. They order pancakes and There was this kid that came in one time and he couldn't have been more than six ordered the benedict and we all were just back there in awe of this little tiny person just straight up ordering a benedict and then that kid came up to the counter.

Those papers were on route to Washington once Washington received them him. Arnold's treason would be revealed. Arnold told Peggy what had happened. She crumbled into his arms weeping but she was crying not so much for her husband has for her beloved monarchy as for Arnold. He had to accept up several things in very short order. If he was to escape with his life I there would be no surrender at West Point. He would never verbier the hero of Britain who ended the American Revolutionary War second he needed to escape immediately if he wanted to avoid the gallows which would require piggies help and equally tragically for the greedy man there would be no twenty thousand pound. Reward Arnold Begged Peggy to act as if all was well until general Washington came to Robinson House with the news of Arnold's betrayal when that happened she should delay Washington as much as possible by fainting total shock and horror at her husband's behavior. Peggy agreed agreed without a moment to spare arnold leaped onto his horse in spurred at into a gallop ignoring his pain legs. He wrote down to his personal dock where he threw himself onto his private barge in ordered his boatmen to paddle South Arnold told them to row until they reached the H. M. S. vulture into display a flag of truce when they approached it is cover story was that he had an emergency message for Beverley Robinson to be delivered under a white flag the men road like never before making making a valiant effort to get Arnold to the vulture in time to deliver the message by now back at West Point Washington Shirley early new of arnold treachery would soon be pursued when presumes the irony wasn't lost on Arnold if he just counseled Andre to stay a couple of days rather than leaving from Manhattan on foot could have been rowing together on their way due to the vulture. Andre would still be a free man the invasion would still be on and Benedict Arnold would be about to get his blood money but that wasn't the case after what seemed like forever. Benedict Arnold's barge pulled up alongside ride the HMS Vulture after boarding he demanded that Robinson pull up the anchor and immediately sale for New York City as they sailed towards Manhattan Arnold had time to ponder the consequences of his failure. His handler was under arrest and likely to be executed. His family was in mortal. Danger is only hope remaining alive himself was because the British she had already accepted his defection. It was a matter of strict British policy never to turn over a deserter to his former army the deck of the HMS Filter Benedict Arnold began to formulate a public relations strategy. 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. According to observers five days later on October seventh seventeen nineteen eighty benedict arnold published an open letter in the British loyalist paper the Royal Gazette titled Letter to the inhabitants of America the attempts to recast his treason as a patriotic selfless act on old wrote in part I affect no disguise and therefore frankly declare that I had determined to retain my arms and command for an opportunity to surrender them to Great Britain. I I was only solicitous to accomplish in event of decisive importance an to prevent as much as possible in the execution of it the fusion Uson of blood in December seventeen eighty benedict arnold led an invading force of sixteen hundred men into Virginia. His men not only killed and captured his former comrades. They made a point of destroying grain mills in supply houses leaving the local people to starve just a few months after formally changing sides arnold was reunited with Peggy rather rather than live out her life in Philadelphia continuing to Feign Innocence Peggy insisted on joining her husband in New York City soon after she became. I'm pregnant with their second child. In seventeen eighty one after the British army surrendered in Yorktown Virginia Benedict Arnold was not captured or punished for his treason instead his family sailed to England to start a new life he returned to the occupation of his youth becoming once again a seafaring merchant between seventeen eighty one and seventeen ninety four the arnold's welcomed five more children for a total of seven two died in infancy leaving the couple with four sons and one daughter eventually the Arnold's move to Canada. They are the aging Benedict Arnold focused on trading with the West indies. His business thrived but his many war injuries were worsening as aged by his late fifties. He was in very poor health and receiving frequent visits from the family doctor in June of eighteen o one the a sixty year old took a turn for the worse entering a state of delirium from which he never returned on June fourteen eighteen o one he died at home had benedict arnold been more successful spy he might well have succeeded in ending the revolutionary war with a victory for Britain. Feigning incompetence was his primary means of sabotaging west point in a fitting twist of fate eat. It was his actual incompetence that ruined his plans though he didn't manage to collect his twenty thousand pounds nor and the war Benedict Arnold's fate was better than he deserved. He died at an advanced age in his own bed surrounded by his family. Meanwhile meanwhile loyal Americans were killed by the thousands defending their fledgling country his treason and the obvious injustice of his safe escape made Arnold one of the most hated men in America even now more than two hundred years later. His name remains a synonym for trader today.

"Was proud to hear of all the worker husband husband had done to prepare west point for a British takeover and benedict was thrilled to see how much his son had ground it was also a happy the occasion for Joshua hit Smith being asked to host a major general and his wife was a great honor so when Arnold asked to use Smith's this house again a few days later the young man was more than willing to help this would ensure the meeting could take place away from the watchful eyes of Richard Varick Arnold suspicious and nosy aid twice in one night. Smith had the opportunity Eddie to help one of his personal heroes he was quick to agree and even promised to send his family on a short vacation so that Arnold could we'd have some privacy one can only imagine what Mrs Smith said when her husband proposed that she traveled twenty five miles north to fishkill for a few you days so that a relative stranger could borrow her house nevertheless she ultimately did travel north and the house was vacated. Arnold now had a secure site for his rendezvous with Andrei. It's unclear exactly how the British learned where Arnold could be found but he must have succeeded in sending some kind of coded message on September sixteenth the HMS S. Volker Anchor just a few miles south of the Smith residence on September Seventeenth Arnold was at West Point in the company of several all continental officers when received an urgent letter from British Colonel Beverley Robinson Robinson told Arnold where the vulture was docked and requested a private meeting under a flag of truce this was it the meeting with Andre was on he'd have an opportunity to pass secret plans for West Point's defenses to his handler they would discuss the invasion and most importantly to arnold they talk about their one remaining point of disagreement regarding money on despite agreeing to the twenty thousand pound payments. Should the plan succeed Zied Clinton hadn't budged on the six thousand pounds if the plan failed and Arnold still wanted ten thousand pounds regardless according to valiant ambition to keep up appearances in front of the other officers Arnold promised to confer with George Washington to be four meeting Colonel Robinson. The commander in chief was nearby on his way to Hartford Connecticut. Washington's proximity was is no accident. Benedict Arnold hope to give General Clinton the opportunity to attack while Washington was near West Point giving the British British a shot at capturing the commander in chief. If they got Washington it would surely end the war making Benedict Arnold Donald a British hero as one might expect journal. Washington reacted to the news of Robinson's visit with concern he suggested that Arnold delay the meeting and send a message to the authorities in New York state to find out if there might be anything on tord about the visit then Washington boarded his boat to cross the Hudson as soon as Washington's back was turned arnold road off to Robinson House to collect his secret documents and prepare to rendezvous with the HMS Vulture. Only Richard Varick stood in his way. Now the suspicious young man insisted on seeing the letter arnold was writing to Robinson in which Arnold scheduled a meeting on the twentieth of September verict deemed Arnold's first draft to friendly frustrated. Arnold thanked thanked his aid for the feedback Vereker rewrote the letter with more formal wording and sent it off but he couldn't outwit his boss entirely before before the post was handed off to a messenger Arnold hit another letter in the bundle in the second hidden letter he revealed a potent and sacred George Washington would return to West Point on Saturday September Twenty Third Arnold New General Clinton Britain would love to capture West Point and Washington in one day but he didn't know if the British were willing to invade when the beloved commander. You're in chief in residence. Clinton's still wanted to capture three thousand American soldiers not kill them given Washington's popularity clarity his presence might ensure his troops would fight to the death either way. The subtext in Arnold's letter was clear he wanted West Point invaded as soon as possible either on September twenty third or before the turncoat had already betrayed his his country and his closest friends now he wanted to end the war and retire with his twenty two thousand pounds.

"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.

"Against the Court Martial proceedings after Paul. If he were to remain valuable spy he would have to retain the trust of his fellow continental soldiers more than that he would have to to regain a responsible position in the army. Although Benedict Arnold was still unable to walk he was forced to travel to Middlebrook Brooke New Jersey for his trial there he discovered a moment of irony Henry Clinton John Andrei Superior Officer and the very man Arnold was secretly trying to help head launched an offensive that call George Washington away from his duties in the military justice system. The Court Martial was postponed indefinitely Clinton had inadvertently prevented Arnold from being able to spy for Clinton Arnold returned home in June of seventeen seventy nine with nothing to show for his trip upon opening joining his mail. He discovered a coded letter that did little to improve his mood. John Andre had suddenly refused to make any strong wrong promises regarding payment not only that his letter tactfully made reference to Benedict Arnold diminished level of value to the British war effort due to his poor reputation. It's unclear if the British had vetted arnold before agreeing to work with him an only just now discovered arnold woes regardless while the British were still willing to make use of Arnold. They certainly weren't going to to pay in advance. Andrei wrote than Arnold would need to secure a conspicuous command and orchestrate the surrender of of several thousand soldiers at that point he would receive two guineas for each man who surrendered or about three hundred and thirty six dollars in today's currency of course Andrei must have been well aware that this was an impossible task for the badly injured arnold he he wasn't fit to serve much less to command a force of thousands Arnold took the letter exactly as it was intended as a stinging rebuke. Luke meant to make him feel old useless and unwanted Andrea must have been deeply offended by Arnold's arrogant reply demanding manning more firm assurances of financial compensation although John Andrei had a great deal of respect for Peggy. He wasn't taking very well tour blustering husband. Perhaps it bothered him. That Arnold was so clearly a greedy mercenary rather than a heartfelt defender vendor of the monarchy like himself arnold in the heat of anger scribbled out another letter to John. Andrei using Joseph Stands Berry again is a currier Arnold response was delivered to the head of British intelligence immediately but but when John Andrei decoded the letter he found that it was merely a shopping list for various types of cloth and ribbon piggy shopping list presumably presumably the message was clear. I may have things to say but I have nothing to tell you even though he was still massively in debt thanks to the loan he had taken out to win. Over Peggy's father Arnold refused to take Andre slight lying coming down had he been younger and more able bodied man he might have challenged the British spy to dual instead. He traded an insult assault for an insult predictably. This message caused a breakdown in communication between Andre Arnold which which in turn caused considerable worry for Peggy. She badly wanted her husband to follow through on his promise to spy for the British. Her anxiety only became worse when midway through the year. Hegi learned that she was pregnant. It didn't exactly come comes a shock. A couple had a very active sex life which arnold used to brag about in letters to his male friends but the timing was is less than ideal with Arnold still facing a court martial and potentially jeopardizing his status as a new spy by insulting John Day. Hey the expanding family was in danger of total insolvency hagey again. N. begged her husband to give Andrey some information that would help general Clinton but as seventeen seventy nine dragged on the prideful Arnold refused to reopen the lines of communication in December of seventeen seventy nine benedict Arnold's Donald Court Martial finally began this preceding was all about his attempts to profit from his position as commander of Philadelphia though Oh he was guilty of several of the charges. None of them were terribly serious. He was in no danger of lengthy incarceration or execution representing himself. Benedict Arnold mounted a spirited defence that focused almost entirely on how much he'd sacrificed for the country entry. He eloquently told the panel about the blood he had shed. He wobbled on his badly injured legs inspiring pity he ranted and raved about the dangers endured. It was a feeble attempt to gain unadulterated sympathy in in January of seventeen eighty thirty nine year old benedict arnold was cleared of all but two charges the improper issuing a pass to a a friendship and the use of government wagons for personal purposes. His sentence would be a public reprimand. Although this was a very positive outcome arnold was furious. He unsuccessfully demanded that the public reprimand be dropped. It was a particularly securely stinging punishment because the reprimand was to come from George Washington himself steaming and Ashamed Benedict Benedict Arnold went home to his pregnant wife in puttered around the house. He spent much of his time numbing his injured leg with opium and alcohol. Hegi soon distracted him from his misery by giving birth to a baby boy in March of seventeen eighty at at age thirty nine. Benedict Arnold was a father for the fourth time he had no means of supporting this child having served since seventeen seventy ninety. Five is an unpaid officer in the continental army. He and Peggy were forced to move into a small home owned by Peggy's father so that they could rent doubt Arnold's larger home and use the rental income to support themselves in April of seventeen eighty. The promised reprimand demand was finally published. Washington called Arnold conduct peculiarly reprehensible as well as imprudent and improper proper but as Washington publicly chastise arnold he was also to arnold surprise writing a private letter to arnold contradicting the very reprimand in it. Washington exhorted Arnold to exhibit a new those noble qualities which have placed you on the list of our most valued commanders. I will myself furnish you so far. Is it be in my power with the opportunities for regaining leaning the esteem of your country. It was an unexpected boon coming. Just when Arnold was at his lowest. The commander commander-in-chief was personally willing to provide him with new opportunities arnold mentally skipped over the part about exhibiting more positive positive character traits in his own mind. Washington had promised him a huge favor and arnold knew exactly what he wanted over the long months of waiting I for his trial and then for the reprimand he'd had plenty of time to think about and how he was going to be useful to the British without the use of his legs he certainly couldn't lead a large company of soldiers in the battle as has Andrei had suggested in their last terse correspondence but he could command of Fort and he knew just the right the one located in New York state West Point was the crown jewel of Washington's defensive strategy adage heavily fortified in strategically located along the Hudson River West Point was crucial to prevent the British from splitting the New England colonies from the Middle Colonies Arnold handing the Ford over would be a true prize John Andrei in General Henry Clinton Arnold knew it would take some work to convince Washington. He was suited for the command at West Point. It required Washington to replace the current Commander Commander Robert. How after planting the seed in Washington Arnold reopened his correspondence with John Andrei writing as if the command was already his as he waited for both responses. Arnold redoubled his efforts to get his legs to work again his old musket. Injury didn't bother him quite so much anymore these days with a little practice he managed to even get back on a horse. This however had an unfortunate side effect arnold briefly convinced Washington that he was ready for field duty over his own objections. Arnold was ordered to command the left wing of a defending force in New York on August. I seventeen eighty eighty he'd be fighting alongside Washington and his men just like old times but he'd be far from West Point and the attack Washington was expecting would come from Henry Clinton. The Very General Arnold was trying to help lucky for arnold the offensive offensive was called off at the last minute as if in sympathy to Arnold for depriving him of another chance at battle George Washington added a postscript to his general orders on August third reading simply arnold will take command of the garrison at West Point even though he'd been begging for this appointment for months reading the words came as a total shock finally benedict arnold had the resolution to all his financial problems in his hands if he could just turn west point over the British he'd never want for money again and all he had to do in exchange was betray.

"The only thing that lifted his spirits. I was eighteen year old Peggy shippen the stunning and brilliant daughter of Edward Shippen a former judge rumor to secretly support poured the British monarchy ever since the death of his first wife Benedict Arnold had preferred to court women far younger than himself and had had been rebuffed by several teen girls. Peggy on the other hand appeared to return his interest. Arnold was elated by September of seventeen seventy eight. He was writing her elaborate. Love letters again sometimes plagiarizing his own previous writings writings to other women despite her family's. Politics Arnold was sure that Peggy was the one for him by Peggy's father Edward Shippen didn't consider the destitute thirty-seven-year-old Governor General and appropriate match for his daughter. Arnold couldn't erase his career career as a continental officer but he could change his bank balance. Arnold began to do things he never would have done before four like uses command Philadelphia to purchase huge amounts of goods to resell before other traders could buy them up. His scheme was quickly discovered and an investigation was opened. The Brazen Arnold didn't let that get in his way arnold knew that if he didn't didn't make enough money to win Edwards blessing Peggy might be married off to someone else whether she liked it or not slowly arnold began to change his financial fortunes while continuing to court the teenaged peggy as they got to know each other she begin to whisper in his ear about the advantages of the monarchy arnold did his best to ignore Peggy's conspiratorial talk but it wasn't long before the consequences for his financial schemes would soon have him listening to what she had to say. By the beginning of seventeen seventy nine arnold's former colleagues were talking about court-martialing him for his abuse of power at Philadelphia Benedict thought this was absurd. He was a war hero sure he was guilty of most of the charges but it wasn't such a serious crime to warrant prosecution arnold felt disrespected betrayed and humiliated by the continental army for me. It was getting harder and harder to disagree with Peggy's praise of the monarchy she often reminded her now fiance that he'd been richer and happier before the war imagine how happy would be if the crown was back in power on. April eighth seventeen seventy nine benedict arnold and Peggy shippen were married laying out enough money to win over her father had required abuses of the power so great he was in danger of being thrown in a military prison he'd taken out an outrageously large loan in order to buy I mansion but in the end Arnold God what he wanted most Peggy playgie hagey didn't have what she wanted most she wanted to see monarchy returned what she's still considered the British colonies and and soon Arnold's health gave her some unexpected leverage weeks after the marriage thirty eight year old arnold came down with a a horrific case of gout in his right leg between that and the lingering musket injury on the left side he couldn't bear wait long enough off to walk at all with her husband disabled under ongoing investigation and now rarely leaving the house. Hagi had plenty any of time to press her case. She knew that if benedict agreed to spy for the British he could potentially turn the tide of the war as well as change his financial situation. She urged him to reach out to a British officer. She knew John Andrei not yet. Thirty Andre was a rising star in the British army as an adjutant general. He was a close confidant of the former British commander in chief General Henry Clinton Andrei spoke. Four languages had a gift for art and entertain friends by composing posing comedic verse on the spot. Peggy adored him. He had often been a guest in her father's home when she was a young girl before the war broke doubt. Hagi couldn't think of a more persuasive man to make her case for monarchy than Andrei. Even the cantankerous arnold wouldn't be immune to andres charms on May fifth seventeen seventy nine. Benedict Arnold was wracked with a fit of guilt.

I little expected to meet the ungrateful returns I received of my countrymen. He'd he'd waited too long to write confined to his home and suffering with constant pain. Arnold could think of nothing but the unfairness ernest of his own position. Peggy's promises kept ringing in his ears. He would be free if the British one he would be enrich again.

Arnold was quick to be an courting again just like before he married Arnold preferred his women beautiful wealthy and in their mid to late eighteens but now he was old enough for his advances to be perceived not as courtship from a potential husband but as an older man and threatening threatening the virtue of a young lady he was often rejected and arnold even openly flirted with girls from families loyal to Britain this didn't improve his standing in the eyes of his detractors who saw arnold as a self interested opportunist rather than a Patriot tree it and it wouldn't be long before one of these courtships led him down the path of treason.

And that would fit in with family name, Mary Elizabeth Connell. Sure. Also good that also would have been a family name. However, not. I think my parents wanted sort of a middle name that really popped stuck out and they went on a retreat before they got married, and they met a nun named Sister, Mary Benedict.
