Abraham Lincoln Said the Only Thing That Could Destroy Us Is Us
"Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant to step the ocean and crush us with one blow? Never All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined. With all the treasure of the earth except our own. In their military chests. With Bonaparte for a commander could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio or make a track on the Blue Ridge. In a trial of 1000 years. At what point then. Is the approach of danger to be expected. I answer. If it is ever to reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot. We must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men. We live Through all time. Or die by suicide. And he wraps up With The rest of the admonition and you can read that for yourselves. But To sum this up. Abraham Lincoln gave us this morning and he said, this country comes down because we'll take it down ourselves. Mark Levin wrote the book, American Marxism. Because he clearly articulates But that's happened where here doesn't mean the country is Over. It means they've gotten a footing and we can't play games anymore. It is no longer a spectator sport. This is critically important. I think it's it's important that we realize these things again. What Lincoln said. And he said it in 18 38 is so apt

"Was i found this little side trail right beside the parkway. That's not really marked where you can go down. And you're just slightly below the lynn co viaduct. Okay and the viaduct is stretching out before you and grandfather mountain is looming way high above you and to your left is just endless. Rolling hills dotted in colors. That look like fruity pebbles and to me. That was the moment that was just like wow. There's no mistaking this for any other place. This is the blue ridge. Parkway and i think that for me was the moment that i still look at that picture and it's almost like i dreamed it. It wasn't real because it's just such an iconic part of america and interestingly it took them nearly i think fifty years to build the parkway but the last like twenty years of construction was just on that eight mile stretch around grandfather mountain truth true story that section took them the longest for reason but as a result this feat of incredible engineering is now the most iconic place on the parkway for me excellent. I'd have to say you keep mentioning doing this in the fall. Which looks gorgeous from the pictures. I'm seeing. It's a pretty darn beautiful place on over fourth of july weekend to yes. Yes and not as crowded as i expected in a year when so many people are in the national parks. You know what man. It wasn't bad in october. Meet smokey mountain. National park was very busy. There was at least one overlook that we could not get too because there were so many cars but the parkway really wasn't it wasn't bad in october we went during the middle of the week instead of the weekend wasn't bad at all excellent and one thing makes you laugh and say only in the blue ridge parkway traffic coming to a standstill because of cyclists riding up a mountain. That's it. I mean it's just like what are you guys thinking. Yeah no i just crazy but good for them. Excellent and if you had to summarize the blue ridge parkway in three words what three words you get a pick epic road trip excellent excellent and if i wanted to know more about the blue ridge mountains.

"That sounds awesome right excellent. Why kind distracted you there. You're heading down into north carolina. Yeah so north carolina when we get down into north carolina. We're getting into the high country and this for me. Is the most spectacular part of the blue ridge. Parkway we're around boone and banner ill in blowing rock three major with major not in terms of sides but major in terms of popularity and and renowned and there is so much to do in that area but two of our favorite things. There's julian price memorial park. Which has the price lake overlook. There's a lot of great trails going around the lake. there's the boon for trail. There's a waterfall. there's so much to do there and the lake itself is just one of the most. I'm a lake person by nature but it's just one of the prettiest lakes i've ever seen and there's a trail that goes around price lake where you're just kind of going through a tunnel of rhododendron. We did it october so they weren't in bloom at the time but it still kinda feels like going through like a railroad tunnel that formed by these massive plants. And then there's little places every so often that you can kind of move over and you're right on the shore of this gorgeous lake. There's kayaking paddle boarding. There's all sorts of things you can do there but really if you have time to do even part of the trail around the lake at this overlook. I highly recommend it. There's also right next door to this. Is moses cone memorial park which is another park that has a lake called bass lake. It has some historical homes that once belonged to this guy who was the denim king of north carolina very wealthy seriously. Yeah i mean. It's like an old style. southern plantation. Lots of history tours that you can do there. We didn't get to spend a few hours there. But it's the kind of place where you could easily spend a day hiking trails again. And both of these are within a few miles of each other but this part of north carolina and the parkway there is so much to do..

"I mean really. you could talk about. All of these overlooks every one of them. Is there for a reason. So it's hard to say. When i did it the first time i stopped it every single every single on of time. I know i know so. Let's keep going south okay. We did the. Brian iger cab. I think those might be the the main ones that i would recommend in virginia so we may want to start moving into north carolina. Now well i would like to ask. Have you made it to the blue ridge music center. That's one we did not make it too but it has. It caught my attention. Yes but we could not go in because they had closed because of covered but we did go around the outside and saw amphitheater where they show the concerts and things like that but we could not go in because of covet. Well the reason i ask is when we're talking about the blue ridge parkway blue ridge is also a style of music that i'm rather fond of an expert in blue ridge music but i do enjoy it and that's what i would to get to in better times absolutely and that area of virginia as well as the northern part of north carolina is one of the epicenters for sibling in the appalachian style and they develop their own. There's a regional style. That is very specific to this small area of virginia north carolina. They do have a fiddler's convention every year. I can look up the date for. But it's very popular to do the blue ridge music center and they do it. And then also. The alta pass orchard in north carolina which is right on the parkway they also have a lot of bluegrass live performances. There and both of them are known for being sort of havens for music in that area. I will let you know. Where is the fiddler says. Here it is old fiddler's convention fiddler's convention..

"The roads not a big road. It's pretty small lane road so it's if you like driving to me i've driven all over the world and it's probably my favorite road i've ever driven. I enjoy driving. It's a good road but it's very windy. The other caution. I would give is as we were right at the northern and just probably up into skyline rather than down in the blue ridge. We were driving in the day as it's getting closer to dusk and i think we saw within the course of half an hour half a dozen different deer in the middle of the road for sure yet. There was one day in virginia where we saw three or four in one day right by the road. Were in the road that speed limit. Is there a reason. And there's not a whole lot of guardrails. Maybe keep your eye on the road and if you wanna look at the scenery ooh look at that. And meanwhile i'm not paying attention to the curves but as long as you take it slow. There's so much to see in so much to do. I can't imagine ever getting bored with the road when you say there's not a lot of guardrails but it's not like say driving highway one in california. Where if there wasn't the guardrail. There's the drop off to the cliff. Typically a lot of vices. It's because of the rounded hills. You're driving the ridge. Line often or just below the ridge line and i don't think i ever felt uncomfortable that oh my gosh. I wish there was a beer guardrail between me and oblivion or something like that. No i don't think that but it's definitely the kind of place where i personally prefer to keep my eyes on the road. More than i would like as a person who likes to look at pretty things all around me and it's tough because we did it last year and peak fall season. You've got these dynamic shades of red orange yellow green on all sides..

Why we must confront hard historical truths
"Not that long ago I received an invitation to spend a few days at the historic. Of James Madison. James Madison of course was the fourth president of the United States, the father of the constitution, the architect of the bill of rights and as a historian I was really excited. To go to this historic site because I understand and appreciate the power of place. Now, Madison called his estate monpellier and mom Pelia is absolutely beautiful is several thousand acres. Rolling Hills farmland forest with absolutely breathtaking views of the blue. Ridge. Mountains but it's a haunting beauty. because. Montpellier was also a slave labor camp. You see James Madison slave more than one hundred people over the course of his lifetime. And he never a single soul, not even upon his death. The centerpiece of Montpellier is Madison's matching. This is where James Madison grew up. This is where he returned to after his presidency. This is where he eventually died and the centerpiece of Madison's mansion is his library this room on the second floor where Madison conceived and conceptualized the bill of rights when I visited for the first time, the director of Education Christian coats. Cool. Why do took me almost immediately to the library. And it was amazing being able to stand in this place where such an important moment in. American history happened. But then after a little while they're Christian actually took me downstairs to the sellers of the. Mansion. Now in the sellers of the mansion, that's where the enslaved African Americans who manage the House spent most of their time. It's also where they were installing a new exhibition on slavery in America. and. While we were there Christian instructed me to do something I thought it was a little bit strange. He told me to take my hand and place it on the brick walls of the seller and slide it along until I felt these impressions or ridges in the face of the brick. Now Look I was going to be staying on site on his former slave plantation for a couple of days. So I wasn't trying to upset any white people. Because when this was over, I want make sure that I could get out. But as I'm actually sliding my hand along the seller war, I couldn't help but think about my daughters and my youngest one in particular who was only about two or three years old at the time because every time she hot out of our car, she would take her hand and slide it along the outside, which is absolutely disgusting and then. And if I couldn't get to her in time, she would take her fingers and pop them in the mouth which drive. Absolutely crazy. So this is what I'm thinking about what I'm supposed to be a historian. But then, but then I actually do feel these impressions in the brick I feel these ridges in the brick and it takes a second to realize what they are, what they are are tiny handprints. Because all the bricks at James Madison's estate were made by the children that he enslaved. And that's when it hit me. That The library in which. James Madison conceived and conceptualizes the bill of rights rests on a foundation of bricks. Made by the children that he enslaved. And? This. Is. Hard. History. It's hard history because it's difficult to imagine the kind of inhumanity. That leads one to enslave children to make bricks. Your comfort and convenience is hard history because it's hard to talk about the violence of slavery. The beatings, the whippings, the kidnappings, the forced family separations is hard history because it's hard to teach white supremacy. Which is the ideology that justified slavery. And so rather than confront hard history. We tend to avoid it. Now sometimes that means just. Stuff up. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say that states rights was the primary cause of the civil war. That would actually come as a surprise. So the people who fought in the civil war. Sometimes. We try to rationalize hard history. When people visit Montpellier and by people in this instance, white people. When they visit mom appeal your and learn about Madison slaving people. They often ask. But wasn't he a good master? A good master. There is no such thing as a good master. There is only worse and worse her. And sometimes. We just pretend the past didn't happen. I can't tell you how many times I've heard people say it's hard to imagine slavery existing outside of the plantation south no, it ain't. Slavery existed in every American colony slavery existed in my home state of New York for fifty years after the American revolution. Why do we do this? Why do we avoid confronting hard history? Literary performer and Educator Reggie. Gibson had the truth of it when he said that our problem as Americans. Is We actually hate history. What we love Is No style.

Travel to Asheville, North Carolina
"I'd like to welcome the show music journalist. Bill Kopp who come to talk to us about Asheville North Carolina Bill. Welcome to show. Thanks for having me on to treat. I've learned a lot listening to previous episodes well and I was telling bill before we started recording that I about a week ago had a trip plan to Ashville. That's gotten trumped by some other opportunities. That have come up. But why should someone plan a trip to Asheville? Ashville is really ECLECTIC and Funky. It's it has food. Music Arts Performing Arts something for everyone in Asheville in one of the things that it's really remarkable about it. Is that not a big city? It's got very humid scale. Outside of the day trip. Everything here is either walkable or a few minutes drive. And it's a lot more artistic and cosmopolitan than one might expect of a city nestled in the on the Blue Ridge. Mountains excellent. Well what are you gonNA recommend for us to do? When we come to Asheville North Carolina a one week itinerary for example. I would suggest three days downtown two days on the outskirts and then potentially two or three days worth of day trips because in an hour of here by car. Of course there's a quite a bit of things to see and do that are different from the experience of being in Asheville proper. We started as downtown. What are we going to do downtown? When you're downtown Nashville. My suggestion would be to take as much local color as possible. Try to do and see and do the things that make Ashfield. You need that means skipping stuff that you could do elsewhere like golf and chain restaurant Golfing. We obtain restaurants those great but experiencing those doesn't really play into the things that make Ashville different from any other place will and when you say downtown. I assume we're downtown there amidst the skyscrapers. Not Not really okay. I haven't actually counted but I would say the number of buildings we have their over ten stories. Kp More than a dozen skyscrapers definitely not. It's Not New York City when you're walking down the street and you're in a canyon with giant tall buildings on either side. You could actually walk from one end of downtown to the other assuming you don't stop and there's plenty of reasons to stop in about twenty minutes about a mile across at the most. And what are we doing? Big thing to do here is to park your car and get out and walk around. People Watch dig into our local history which includes figures like Oh henry quote unquote favorite son. Thomas Wolfe Robert moog pretty much the inventor of the Synthesizer Buckminster Fuller Scott Zelda Fitzgerald. All those people have significant parts of their history. Spent living working and creating Nashville. So there's all kinds of things connected with them. Asheville has more art deco architecture per capita than any American city except Miami which is a little unusual the reason it does is because the city was in such dire financial straits after the depression that for many many many years the city was mired in debt and couldn't afford to knock down the old buildings so when things improved. Those buildings were renovated and fix back up. Now we have all these beautiful old buildings that we otherwise have and that you are likely to find in another city our size opinion down to be a little more specific here so if I want to see some of the best of our DECA. Let's say where am I going to start walking? In what direction. GonNa head start at City Hall. Which looks like a wedding cake okay. It's an unusual looking building there. A couple of their buildings right around but it started there and that's pretty much on the east end of downtown and so from there block West towards the mountain manager in every direction Ashville. Is it about twenty two hundred feet above sea level but if you go in any direction where South East or west. You're going to get to mountains in a little bull. If you go west about forty five minutes you drop out of the mountains down into the the Piedmont you drop a good thousand feet elevation. So we're right on the edge of the out range but we are in a valley so we're surrounded by aunts and you say go and People Watch best place in Ashville for people watching a place called Pritchard Park. Which when I moved here twenty years ago was a bus terminal and now it's a city park a triangular park probably nowhere near acres quite small. But it's a great place to people watch. There are permanent. Chess sets set up for people to play on and on Friday nights. One of the most quintessential Ashville things of all the drum circle. I saw pictures of this. Okay good people from every walk of life. Young old doesn't matter what show up. Some of them are serious poly rhythmic percussionist. Others of the May have never hit a drum in their life before. And they all come together and beat the heck drums and it's a communal experience. And it's not one of these sort of things. Where if you walk up with tambourine or a drum that you've just bought or borrowed or something you're not gonna get dirty looks from the local saying who are you. It's a very open welcoming thing and it's like nothing else and it's loud but in a good way and when you say drum circle I. Emily think there's a little bit of a hippy. Culture left Nashville. Am I way off base here? There's more than a little bit. Yes ashville is unique in that. I've been here twenty years and I moved here from Atlanta Bailey because I really wanted to make a lifestyle change. I wanted to get out of the rat race. A little bit and my story is far from unique almost everyone. I know who is a transplant here? Maybe not most of the people but it's quite a few of the people they've moved here because of quality of life issues. They didn't move here because they for some corporation that transfer the here. There's not a lot of work here. It's not that kind of the city so it's very very laid back. It's very Bohemian. And there are a lot a lot a lot of seventy year old hippies. Okay well and you mentioned some of well known people who have lived in Nashville including I think he's mentioned Moga and Henry and Fitzgerald there. Zelda actually died in a fire here in Nashville isn't it? It's not a lovely story. Scott and Zelda spent a good bit of time here and Thomas Wolfe who look homeward angel in fact. His novels are about Ashville. They're classified is fiction but they're really nonfiction. You've changed the names and he pretty much got almost got run out of town because there was a little too much truth in them. Perhaps so yes. We're talking quite a number of years ago. Celebrated novelist and his greatest work is from here. Enough time has gone by all is forgiven. Thomas Wolf House downtown is a popular tourist attraction. I can relate. I grew up in John Steinbeck's hometown who is much more popular. Now that he's dead kept writing about all the wrong people the struggling and up and coming and not the right people so wasn't as popular as my impression in his time.
Supreme Court Pipeline Fight Could Disrupt The Appalachian Trail
"We're going to spend the next few minutes talking about Supreme Court case and the group that feels caught between the two sides. If it's ever built the Atlantic coast pipeline would run six hundred miles and carry natural gas from West Virginia North Carolina and Virginia. Between Start Finish is a big physical barrier the Blue Ridge mountains and what has become a potential legal barrier the Appalachian trail environmental groups who oppose the pipeline have challenged the legality of a forest service permanent allowing the pipeline to cross the trail. The people who manage the trails say that challenge took them by surprise and they warn the ruling in favor of those environmental groups could up in the trails complicated management structure. Npr's Becky Sullivan explains Do you want to uh. Let's go this way earlier. This month I came out to the spot on the trail where the Atlantic coast pipeline may one day cross. It's about an hour west of Charlottesville right up on a mountain ridge. The George Washington National Forest. The trail is just a dirt footpath winding through trees. That are all bear because it's February from up here you can see out into the valley to the north. I met Andrew Downes a senior regional director for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. That's the private organization that oversees the day to day management of the trail the coordinates efforts between federal and state agencies and the boots on the groundwork of regional groups and volunteers. So the the orange you think that orange flags are marking this. It's it's about in the right area and I've been out here probably a dozen times as we're walking along the trail. Andrew Downes wants to make one thing clear the Appalachian Trail. Conservancy is not opposed to this pipeline. They don't support it but they also don't oppose that's not to say that there aren't direct impacts from Atlanta 'cause pipeline to the show there are our analysis led us to the conclusion that the scope and range of those impacts did rise to the level requiring opposition for one the pipeline would cross under the trail about seven hundred feet underground it would enter and exit on private land off the national forest. You would see a clear pathway around the pipeline off in the distance and if we were standing in True Wilderness Andrew. Johns says that might be caused for but standing on the trail here. It's not exactly wilderness. We're looking at. The view is already dotted with what he calls impacts houses roads fields all sorts of things cutting through the trees below all the visual impacts that we see for the you know this kind of wilderness experience. The best way to do that is for all those things not to exist in this natural enforced in landscape. But the reality is you know. We're here. The Blue Ridge Parkway here people's homes are here and this is part of the society we live in the Appalachian trail. Conservancy runs on this kind of pragmatism. It's part of the deal when you're coordinating multiple federal and state agencies with the effort of thirty plus regional clubs and thousands of volunteers. The conservancy has been doing this work for almost a century so well before the Appalachian trail was brought under federal management as part of the national trails system in the nineteen sixties. But they were not part of this litigation what happens is is people want to stop a pipeline oftentimes for good reasons and they. WanNa use every tool available To do that. The question before the court centers around who is allowed to grant a permit for pipeline like this on federal land because the pipeline would cross the trail in a national forest the four service granted permits the pipeline company. The Forest Service doesn't have the authority to grant a permit across the National Park and though the trail is managed day today by the Appalachian Trail. Conservancy it is technically a part of the National Park. System Noah Sachs is a professor of environmental law at the University of Richmond. He's been watching this case so if in fact the Appalachian trail is part of the national park system then the Forest Service had no authority to authorize this tunneling underneath it for the Atlantic coast pipeline. That's the argument and environmental group. Used to challenge the Forest Service permit the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals agreed and they revoked the permit. The pipeline company has appealed. So that's really the crux of the issue. That's before the Supreme Court on Monday. The issue of on the ground authority over the Appalachian trail has never been questioned in this way before. Trail officials say this worries them because of the way they manage the trail because it causes so many different kinds of lands federal state parks forest even some privately owned land. The Appalachian trail conservancy has relied on decades of precedent policies and understanding. In order to do its work. It's not that it would all come crashing down tomorrow. But Supreme Court ruling could potentially trigger along bureaucratic process if reexamining and reestablishing many of the policies and procedures that have effectively been in place for more than fifty years and that process could disrupt the trails everyday management needs until her retirement last December Rita. Hennessy was the administrator of the national trail system. That's the office within the park. Service that oversees these types of national trails. The Fourth Circuit's ruling in two thousand eighteen caught her by surprise the fact that it was identifying the Appalachian trail corridor as part of the National Park Service. That's what was most surprising that that's not how we have managed the national trails system for fifty years. And is he told me. She immediately worried about the domino effects when I asked how a Supreme Court decision to uphold might affect the administration of the Appalachian Trail and is he reeled off a series of policies that could be thrown into doubt issues of environmental compliance land-management acquiring lands trail maintenance volunteer use. You get the idea. She'll be watching the arguments Monday with some nervousness because any decision by the Supreme Court could change things for the trail you know having worked with national trails for my whole thirty year career and beyond that it it. It's something that's out there that that is just looming and were not sure how it's going to be decided. The trail conservancy says they are already seen complications. From the case they say the four service recently asked them to put on pause every trail maintenance project they had plans that would take place on national forest land. This summer the forest service declined to comment because of the ongoing litigation. The Southern Environmental Law Center is the Environmental Group leading the litigation in response to trail. Officials concerns attorney. Dj Gherkins says the question before the court is so narrow that it will not affect trail management. No one should worry that the outcome of this case is going to affect the cooperative management that has been part of the Appalachian trails success and should be going forward no matter how the court rules. It's not the end of the road for the Atlantic coast pipeline or for the environmental groups who oppose it. The pipeline company is lobbying Congress for a special permit and Gherkins. Group has won several other challenges to the pipeline. That will still pose obstacles regardless of how this case turns out for the trail. This is the big one Andrew Downes with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. There are a lot of organizations who are focused on protecting the environment Litigating broad focused environmental issues and I applaud those folks but there's only one organization the whole world that's dedicated solely to the Appalachian trail and we have to make sure that our decision process reflects that that level of Focus. Because if it's not us that speak for the trail and only the trail in no one else will oral arguments for the case. Take place Monday. The court is expected to rule this summer becky Sullivan NPR

"Being raised in the Blue Ridge mountains there as Bill was saying. You know, or or the post apocalyptic survival thing where you gotta kill whatever. Great. So it may come as a shock to learn that some shafts over in Great Britain believed that the grey squirrel may just be the future of sustainable meat eating. That is the menu at chef Ivan. Tis doll downs London restaurant. There are curious diners that the try the squirrel meat. It's a squirrel meat pie with a pickled onion relish. Oh my goodness. And score. Man, squirrel. Ragu lasagna. It is part of a push to get diners to overcome their squeamishness and see gray squirrel as a viable and perhaps even ethical protein source. In fact, what they say is squirrel is one of the most sustainable proteins that you can cook. And they really it is it is almost exactly the same in tastes rabbit is not as Gamee's rabbit. It's nice white meat. It's good to cook down. Slowly is very good view. It's quite lean. I'm not gonna do that. Now, there are things that I say, I won't eat or I won't even not that. I wouldn't try but KENDALL this morning and yesterday, and I'm thinking, maybe this is why I have a headache. Now such a bad headache. Yesterday and today because I have this ninja. It's the ninja crusher. You did that earlier. So you might even be having some detox Dems right now. Yeah. We talked earlier about. Having coffee having caffeine. And then I was just saw your scary last post that you put on your Facebook. Are you saw that one too? Someone someone missing. Chinese have a serious conversation about healthy, juicing you post that so many Sanders. Yes, I apologize for my. That I saw your post a file healthy green veggie blended drinks for the new year. So if you've been using for the last couple of days, especially when I do detox isn't stuff, you can have symptoms of of that, especially if you haven't had any sugar or gluten or happening if you just used for the last couple of days that don't wonder you're feeling juicing. It's I it's not like a juicer because we here's what I understood KENDALL. And I'm going to keep that in mind. Just because. Yeah, this is normal. Maybe I feel better tomorrow. It takes some time for everything to leave your body, but you will feel better after this initial little you're just getting rid of owning staff and your your body your body will feel better after in your body's going. Oh my gosh. Green juice and vegetables. And all these this nutrition that I need and your body's like no I want to eat pizza. Yeah. But then like, yeah. Your body have some more vegetables. Well, there's nothing more hideous than kale. I never even. I'll be honest with the I don't eat enough vegetables KENDALL. I don't I'll be the first to admit that I do not eat enough vegetables. So I'm sitting here trying to figure out a way. How the heck I'm not gonna do the, squirrel. I don't care how much protein is in that. I don't know. I mean how to. To eat more vegetables. So here's what I thought. Okay. So I went and got this kale. It looks like he was grown on some in some like, I don't know like in the swamp or something. Hideous gusted look on your faces. You're legitimately against kale. Well, I mean, it's ugly. And so then I'm putting kale. I'm putting things that I would never ever put together like I don't even like avocados. But I know they're good for you. So I went through I found everything that's good for you avocados blueberries grapefruits. Kale? Spinach all of this stuff. And I in the banana, I'm thinking my goodness. I'm putting a banana in and I'm going to blend it with an avocado hideous. It's just hideous. It is not. That's perfect. They both have almost the same kind of texture. You can't even hideous in terms of. I'm not saying it's not good for you agree that it is. But it's just this whole bad to me in my brain. I think it's my brain telling me this is going to be off. Now, the honest truth is the honest truth is is that it's really not that bad. Some people some people will sit there and sip it as if it's some kind of a slurpee or something. No, no. So what I've decided what I'm gonna do. Or what I do is. I just take it, and I just gulp it down and in two days I've had like four heaping. Kale? Spinach. All I've eaten more vegetables in.
