Why Kyle Rittenhouse Should've Never Gone to Trial

"Where my brain goes with this stuff, it's sort of like saying Supreme Court declares one plus one equals two. And everybody cheers. And there's a side of me that says, why are we cheering? Like we know one plus one equals two. The only horror is that we needed to hear what the Supreme Court said on it as though they didn't themselves know that one plus one equals two. At that point right now. Roger Kimball wrote a brilliant column about this. Kyle rittenhouse, that should case never have gone to trial. We had high definition video of leftist thugs chasing them through the streets yelling, kill him, kill him, kill him. We had video of someone clubbing him with a skateboard. We had video of someone pointing a gun at him. When he shot those three psychotics, one of whom was a pedophile. It was obviously self defense. He was even this. This is like my brain explodes. You say one of whom was a pedophile. Okay, a child rapist. Now, if you're following the news, many people already know this. But I think it bears repeating since we've not addressed this issue. Talking about things that are so confusing. In other words, it's not an issue of Kyle rittenhouse is chased by some people or whatever. The people chasing him are the sort of characters that anybody would say are super bad people. Not anybody Eric, not anybody, the mainstream media were to say calling them heroes. A Democrat legislator saying, they were a group of heroes. They were antiracist activists and Kyle rittenhouse cross state lines illegally with an AR-15 attack. Assault weapon and killed them. None of which is true. They will have no we know, don't take for granted or the old maybe your listeners don't know this because you're the only person saying it. If they read MS MSN, if they watch NBC, if they watch CNN, they don't know any of this. They think he was a white nationalist who carried a gun across state lines and murdered people. None of which is true. He didn't carry a gun across state lines. He shot himself defense. He wasn't a white nationalist. They were white communist thugs trying to murder him trying to burn down a used car dealership of some small businessman.

How Unity Can Be Realized Only Through the Church

"I have to ask you because everybody has a different temperament. You have the temperament by God's grace to wade in to these really painful details and as a journalist to kind of sift through these facts and try to make some sense of them. There aren't many people doing that. My instinct for good or for ill is always to want at some point to step aside and to say, what can we do about this? Is your I'm guessing that your response first and foremost is to do what you're doing, which is to say to report on it and to try to bring clarity since there is so little. Well, I think it's really important we find reconciliation across racial and ethnic ethnic lines in the church. And the church needs to be the place that brings Americans together about what's really important because you and I have much more in common with a Christian pigmy living in the jungle jungle in Congo, than we do with a secular American, the same ethnic background as our state. Right. I want to see people gathering in the church and coming to the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ and finding the real source of unity in our human dignity as children of God made by God redeemed by Christ brought together by the Holy Spirit. These are the things that bring us together. So when I talk about these racial issues, my intention is not to divide and not to rally white people as white people. No, not at all. My intention is to is where I see people being demonized, vilified, treated unfairly because of their ethnicity. I want to object to that as a Christian.

Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Explains Joe Biden's COVID Failures

"First, these statistical numbers, I mean, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes President Biden may not recall what he said during a 2021 campaign debate last fall, but Americans should, anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United States of America. COVID deaths this year have now surpassed the toll in 2020. Wall Street Journal points out it would shame that mister Biden has done no better than Donald Trump in defeating COVID. Despite the benefit of vaccines better therapies and more clinical experience. The left politicized COVID by holding mister Trump responsible for a disease that was always going to be hard to defeat. Biden said, if the president had done his job, all the people would still be alive. The Wall Street Journal says that was his false as anything mister Trump has ever said. But most journalists and experts agreed with the basic premise, mister Trump had blood on his hands. The world's top medical journals called for mister Trump's defeat. The Wall Street Journal writes about Biden's COVID death milestone. Because of the Trump administration's preparation they say, the U.S. led most of the world in vaccinations. Yeah, mister Biden had no plan to deal with a large numbers of vaccine holdouts other than to deride them. He missed his goal of getting 70% of adults vaccinated by July 4th, but proclaimed victory nonetheless. Biden blamed Republican governors and unvaccinated conservatives. Yet blacks and young people have also shown resistance reluctance to get vaccinated. They don't tend to be Republican, see Nicki Minaj and Kyrie

So riddle me this Batman is Biden's presidency and disgrace. Is Biden disgraceful in banning, travel? From South Africa? My gosh. Here's the vice president Kamala Harris defending what Biden used to say was a disgraceful racist, horrible thing that diminishes us in the eyes of the world, and that is to ban travel from other parts of the world.

"Just confirmed that everything you think about what we're witnessing with the Biden administration is true. Headline, President Biden mocked for restricting travel from African nations after he attacked Trump for doing the same. This is so ridiculous. This is beyond satire. We're at a point where it's not even satirical anymore. You know the news about this new army Kron variant and South Africa. So what's Biden do? He bans travel from South Africa. Do you remember what he said about president Trump? Who did the same thing? President Trump trying to protect Americans from COVID. This is a tweet from Joe Biden. Trump further diminished the U.S. and the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new African ban Biden said hell of a difference. In March of 2020, is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It's a disgrace, and we can not let him succeed. Yeah, that's what Biden said last year and now he's turned around and he's banned, travel from an African nation.

Why COVID Vaccinations Should Be Exclusively for the High Risk

Why COVID Vaccinations Should Be Exclusively for the High Risk

"House so doctor, let's talk about kind of where we're at now. And there is there's some outlying questions about the vaccine and I know you've come out, I believe against vaccinating children. I don't want to put words in your mouth. I might have read that. Maybe I'm mistaken. But there are outlying questions as why are the countries that are so vaccinated, having spikes in COVID, Israel, Singapore, Gibraltar, Vermont is the most vaccinated state in the country and they have the highest COVID rate right now in America. What's your thought on this? Because to clarify the position that my opinion is that high risk people should really, you know, I'm not anybody's doctor. You should make a judgment in consultation with your doctor. I hope you have a rational critical thinking. That's the point. That's an assumption, exactly. But assuming you have that in theory, you should make a judgment on your own risk from the illness and your own risk or benefit from the vaccine. So high risk people, I personally think should take the vaccine. I think high risk children should take the vaccine. High risk from COVID. Okay, but high risk children are not most children. And so basically, what's happening to answer your question lies with the data on the vaccine when you look at the studies from the UK from Israel from Qatar and as a side statement here, I never thought I'd see the day where I trusted data from other countries more than I trust the data from our audience. I agree with you. I want to get into that. Yes. We are in that stage right now.

How Fauci Politicized America's Scientific Community With Dr. Scott Atlas

"Well, doctor, I completely agree, and we were harsh critics of the lockdown citing your commentary in your writings early and often. However, what confuses so much so many members of our audience and since you were on the front lines, I'd love your take on this. It seems obvious. Then why did we keep on doing it? Why is it that we were ruled by people that were more ideological? I'm being nice, right? I mean, these these decisions have major and serious consequences, and we're completely at odds with the data. You know, strip all the politics aside, just looking at it empirically, you could not justify more lockdowns, more school closures yet, we did. Can you give us any insight into the internal dynamics? Did Fauci and birks have a separate pile of data they weren't telling anyone? Or was it another side of the story where they just didn't care? I love your take on it. Okay, so I'll first state what I believe. And I think, you know, everyone should believe people do want the pandemic to end. I mean, I don't think that I would never ascribe a mode of as evil as that. There was no separate data. In fact, like I tried to say here, these people didn't have what they thought was data was just simple tabulations of cases. And that's not an analysis. That's not critical thinking. I'm talking about the world's literature, the world's data that evolving science, they never brought that forward in my presence at any of the meetings. I never heard them talk about studies. I never saw them critique a study like a critical thinking scientist should. And I never heard anyone refute what I said by quoting studies. Never not once. So that wasn't really the reason. Now, the question why, of course, is very difficult to answer. People at some level are in too deep. These people will never admit they were wrong. That I guarantee,

"states" Discussed on United States Citizenship - Civics Test Podcast

"Question number thirty eight. What is the highest court in. The united states and the answer is the supreme court. Here's a quick civics lesson to help you remember the answer to question. Thirty eight the. Us supreme court has complete authority over all federal courts. It's rulings have a significant effect. A supreme court ruling can affect the outcome of many cases in the lower courts. The supreme court's interpretations of federal laws and of the constitution our final. The supreme court is limited in its power over the states. It cannot make decisions about state law or state constitutions. The court can decide that a state law or action conflicts with federal law or with the us constitution. If this happens the state law becomes invalid. The supreme court case ruling marbury versus madison established this power known as a judicial review. The supreme court also rules on cases about significant social and public policy issues that affect all americans. The supreme court ruled on the court case brown versus the board of education of topeka which ended racial segregation in schools. So again question. Number thirty eight is what is the highest court in the united states and the answer is the supreme court..

"Question number twenty five. Why do some states have more representatives than other states. There are three possible answers that you can give for this question but you only need to say one of them. The three possible answers are because of the state's population because they have more people or because some states have more people. Here's a quick civics lesson to help you remember one of those answers for question number twenty five. The founding fathers wanted people in all states to be represented fairly in the house of representatives. A state's population determines the number of representatives. It has in this way states with many people have a stronger voice in the house in the senate. Every state has the same number of senators. This means that states with few people still have a strong voice in the national government so again question number twenty five is why do some states have more representatives than other states and you can choose one of the following three answers because of the state's population because they have more people or because some states have more people..

Five and so little backstory. My my good friend. Catherine parsons going back to the tubs. Fire two thousand seventeen. She and i became acquainted from my work. At the tubs fire. And she decided she was going to produce and make a documentary film called. The fire cast of santa rosa. So catherine started on that project in people say. Oh yeah you get this fire and We'll just be in and out in a month or two in like no. It doesn't work that way. Efforts go on for a long long time like a year two years three years. I mean it just goes on and on doesn't end doesn't end so catherine came down from. She's from canada. Toronto came down hard. Some simple talk offers and shot footage and all that was sort of in post production from the fire cast of santa rosa and then november ninth two thousand and eighteen. The campfire broke out and that changed everything so her project then became a completely different animal for the film which was renamed the fire cats so so catherine already friends by then. He spent a lot of time in person visiting and so she hired a a cinematographer a well known drones. Cinematographer named douglas thron. And when a campfire broke out so the day that fire broke out. I was working my second job where i teach at a police academy. I'm a firearms. Instructor is a part time job. And that morning i remember shooting on the to arrange in the morning and around nine thirty in the morning we took a break in the wind was swirling. It was just kind of weird weather like what we all describe as earthquake weather right right. 'cause i grew i grew up in southern california child. Okay i know that whether it was just had a weird vibe myself and might fifteen recruits. Were sitting outside just taking a break in a wind swirling and i looked to the east mountain and napa county called mount saint i saw little darks smudge over the backside of it looked at it and i looked down. I said that looks like smoke. And it looked at it. And i said no that smoke dish those clauses at that smoke but judging by the wind at sea level where i was at which is basically sea level looking to the east and i knew that smoke was coming from a long ways away in the mountains. We'd had those offshore winds goes northeast. Winds and i looked data my sought growing and i look at him. I said you're looking at the beginnings of a monster. That's the exact phrase. I used and they were like y'all. You're smoking your socks. So i got on my iphone. And i punched in fire in california and i saw the campfire in paradise unfolding on media and i immediately contacted catherine the call katherine paradise on. She should oh. My god. And i said i'm going so she hired douglas. The cinematographer joined me. I think on day six. I'd already been inside working. I was able to get into this terrible nightmare. Were authorities were not letting trained rescuers in this was a monumental amount of casualties felines alone was in the thousands and they were not letting anybody in but this one particular organization which i will not name that ended up turning into a complete nightmare and i was getting with my credentials and so i was able to for the first few days. Get in a couple of convoys actually ran into a couple of my friends over there who are. hp offers that. I teach at the academy with and and i got two convoys. We rescued a lot of cats..

"So in the beginning of every fire I have worked on and to date. I've worked six major western. Us wildfires cal northern california oregon so for example. The campfire which the campfire was in paradise was the mother of all fires. Took out that town. Fifteen thousand five hundred homes and an entire city wiped right off the map. Right of human souls lost in thousands and thousands of this place in las cats burned injured. Show i arrived at the campfire on day. Five and was able to gain entry due to my law enforcement. Profession and i got in there as social media was pulling up the lost and found pages on facebook 'cause by then people can already knew what i did and i had you know people that were reporting their loss kastner addresses and show don day one and two. I'd already had a list of addresses but at that point it was about triage. It was about getting there and start looking for burned up cats right. And that's what i did for the first couple of nights and then i had. We started to get more intel more addresses like his arcadia. Get pictures and i just would take. You know hundreds of pages of notes this address this cat. And then i would start making my rounds working at night and cruising around with the thermal scope at my pickup truck with all my gear. And you're traversing all across the city. And anytime i saw a cat anywhere. I would try and get as close to it as i could out food and water and then make make a notation back out and go looking for cast. Were obviously burned injured in trying to get them and then get to the other. The the known cat addresses and so they develop took the and the people were mapping into research so many people involved behind the scenes. It's just crazy how some we'd learned so much during the campfire because it was just a gigantic followed you on that on social media. Yeah that was That was a life changing experience. It's an emotional thing for you. I can hear it in. Oh yeah what are these cats like when you finally do trap them because you know they've been domestic cats they've been involved in a family then they go through something. None of us should ever go through. So they're totally traumatized. they've been trapped are they. I i know every cat has different personality wise and experience wise but are they friendly at all when you get a hold of them or are they just crazy. I'm over very you know it just depended but very often there were very vocal. I mean some catches screaming screaming in the traps just scared to.

My felines my family. They're in my life blood. They mean everything to me.

"Hello and welcome to the political history of the United States. Episode two point ten. The Gloucester petition. Throughout the month of June sixteenth, seventy six events in Virginia head moved from a simmering discontent to open rebellion. The purchases and the governor had reluctantly acquiesced to the demands of General Bacon and his men mostly because they were at gun point, and it was either do that or die. By the end of June however conditions outside of Jamestown meant that big, and had to retreat from the capital as soon as bacon was gone Berkeley dissolve the Jude Assembly, back in Jamestown governor, Berkeley and members of the assembly were undoubtedly shaken by the events of the past month Berkeley's power had been tested in every conceivable way, and beyond not playing Charles the first two. Bacon Oliver Cromwell or in other words escaping the month with his head, still attached to his shoulders, Berkeley had seen nothing but a devastating series of losses. The immediate attacks were a somewhat welcome reprieve for those inside of Jamestown as it brought them time to breathe, then reassessed their position. I say somewhat because it is important to note that the attacks that drove bake it out of town, not exactly out on the frontier. The attacks occurred about thirty miles away from Jamestown. New Kent. To give an idea of distance. You can't is located about halfway between Jamestown and Modern Day.

"Him. After eight tenths standoff. They can men realized that they had little choice as surrendered on June the tenth it certainly appeared as though Berkeley had won the day. The rebel Bacon and his men were in custody that afternoon begging was brought into the State House where he would meet face to face with governor Berkeley however much to everybody's surprise Berkeley didn't exactly seem to take advantage of his moment. He used his time to call out. Drummond in Lawrence and warn of the dangers that they posed he allowed big into confess which big did charged vacant for two thousand pounds and then agreed that if they can promise not to overthrow. The Virginia government would go ahead and authorize bacon to lead a force out against the Indians. Berkeley even went so far as to low bacon back onto the council. Okay so what gives Berkeley for all of his. Anger is just going to force. Bake it into making an empty apology. This entire ordeal was really just a hell governor. Berkeley feel better. Everybody in the Virginia House of Burgess was as stunned seriously. Nobody anticipated this and everybody is just trying to figure out what is going on at this point did Governor. Berkeley come to his senses and decide that the path to peace is by meeting Bacon demands. Well as it turns out. No that isn't the case at all. Uc Berkeley at. This point was sitting on information that nobody else appeared to known. Berkeley was becoming concerned over the fact that the Virginia militia was taking their sweet time to fully garrison Jamestown amp repair for the defense of the city. Defense from what you ask well at that same time. A large number of Bacon supporters were coming to town. They were armed. They were angry and they were determined to air. Their grievances to the governor in the assembly Berkeley was to his very core a royalist. He has supported. Charles I during the civil war. He supported Charles the secondary the restoration the only time when he was not the governor of Virginia was drained those years when Cromwell was empower however despite personally supporting and being friends with Charles the first Berkeley had zero interest in following his example. In death. Berkley just not super excited to be dragged out by an angry mob and beheaded with this in mind. Berkeley gave a generous pardon for Bacon. Made a nice show of mercy and intended that with Bacon. Pardon and actually getting exactly what he wanted. The angry mob would round and leave Jamestown to his credit Berkeley guessed correctly. Bathing was Freidan. Hey the concessions were pretty sweet with no reason to hang around Jamestown. The rebel promptly turned around and went back home. Berkeley figured that through these concessions he would be able to remove the immediate risk he would pacify bacon followers and more importantly would keep them from getting too interested in hunting around Berkeley's finances. The problem however for Berkeley is that he couldn't move past Nathaniel Bacon if Berkeley had just stayed on this path. There is a decent chance that biggest rebellion is nothing more than a mere but note Berkeley however decides to go in just totally different direction here as much as the people. In the House of Burgess were shocked. So wasn't the thing. Bacon making one would sure assume was aware that being captured by Berkeley enforces probably wasn't going to end well for him so a parking was not something that he would have seen coming. Bacon rightly was not just surprised by the pardon. He was also very skeptical about it. Those who had come to protect Bacon. We're going home and very quickly. Baking was going to find himself alone once again. Bacon was right to worry. Berkeley had no plans to let this go. And on the night of June eleventh Berkeley issued a new arrest warrant for Bagan having cleared beacons loyalists out of town. Berkeley now had a chance to bring the militia in to make sure that Jamestown was properly prepared should the rabble decide to comeback calling for their soon to be recaptured leader. Berkeley by all accounts was not planning to mess around this time. The order of the day was to capture bacon at execute him before a rescue mission could be launched when Bacon supporters returned Jamestown. Berkeley was said on their leader. Being dead hopefully nobody will be all that interested in funding a war over a dead man and they would all does go back home disappointed to be sure but without launching an attack on the morning of June twelfth men loyal to Berkeley Storm the Lawrence House where Bacon was expected to be hiding except Bacon. Apparently missed the memo that he was supposed to be holed up at Lawrence House when news reached Berkeley. That baking wasn't there at all. The governor realized that he had made a gigantic mistake. But this point. The news was out there that he had reissued the warrant begins. Men were coming and general. Bacon wasn't going to be anywhere near as dead as Berkeley had hoped. He would be Berkeley knowing what he had to do. You know defend James from the incoming agree mob instead decided to take another path Berkeley after evaluating the situation said yet no. I'm going to leave now. He quickly packed up his belongings. When to the Treasury and withdrew. His money made his way to Semi Bay and decided to get out of town. Well he still could and catch up with his wife. If all went as planned Berkeley would be on his way to London in just a few days. I think it goes without saying that. Just basically running away from the incoming storm storm largely caused by him is not a wonderful look for Berkeley however all things considered his real mistake in the situation is not that he decided to leave. James to the rabble. The real mistake at least personally for Berkeley is not making sure that the ship was ready to go. Berkeley suddenly found himself sitting on a ship. That was at least a week away from being ready to leave. Keep in mind that we are just thirty. Six hours pass Berkeley surprise. Pardon though when he may because Bacon men were beginning to flood into the poorly-defended Jamestown simple math tells us that these men loyal to Bacon are much closer than a week away. Berkeley as it turns out could also do math and quickly figured out that he had a very serious problem on his hands. He wasn't going to be able to hide Taylor to London before a furious mob descended on Jamestown if Berkeley had been concerned by the biggest supporters days before he must have been terrified of them now they were not only upset over the treatment of Bacon but they were feeling mightily double crossed by the governor understanding this predicament. Berkeley was forced to accept that he was not going to be getting out of Virginia. In time with the fight option exhausted Berkeley turned to his other option fight. Berkeley had some canons. Those that have been used before to fire on begins mid in the harbor that he ordered position for the defense of the city he likewise cintos cows to figure out the position of the rebel army for the second time this episode. This cows are not going to be heard from again which was still a very ominous side. So yeah not a great week to be a scout. On June twenty third look was made Bacon. It was just two miles from Jamestown out the front of a lot of angry colonists. Berkeley almost instantly realized that this was not going to be a battle. It was going to be a slaughter. Bacon was at the head of approximately four hundred men. Berkeley had about thirty militia members to defend the city and worse Berkeley Hackensack amongst the militia members. Present their loyalties were in question Berkeley wanting to avoid the wholesale destruction of Jamestown declared the city open and told his men to stand down. Bacon was going to take Jamestown without firing a single shot. General Bacon as he was now so lovingly being called was not going to waste any time making sure that everybody inside of Jamestown understood. We're the power now lied as soon as the town was captured. Baking called for the Virginia Assembly. To meet it goes without saying that this meeting was not business as usual and one has to imagine at this point for a man like Berkeley. He must have been wondering if he was going to leave that meeting. Alive once assembled Bacon made his demands directly to governor Berkeley. Well he must have enjoyed being called General Bacon by his men he wanted to actually make things official and thus demanded to be made a commission general now to be fair to the. Guy William Berkeley has had an especially bad couple of days in the realm of bad days is raking up. There really are not about to get any better. Of course eight respectable Manley. Berkeley is going to act in this situation. With only the highest honor and dignity right. Well if you consider a temper tantrum. Highest Honors Dignity then E. performed pretty well Berkeley at this exact moment has absolutely no power at all. Well on the surface. Bacon is asking for these things to be granted. Nobody at all is mistaken into believing that these were really requests. Bacon is telling Berkeley he expects Berkeley is going to do instead of accepting the inevitable or attempting to fight back against Bacon and his forces however Berkeley instead rips his shirt off and just request that they can shoot him right there on site as though this was not dramatic enough Berkeley then challenge begin to a sword. Fight Begin. Not really interested in. This makes a quick speech saying that. He just wants to protect the good people of Virginia and needs his commission. Having lost the day. The governor turned around and just walked out bacon for his part was trying to make. It appear that he just wanted what was best for the colony however with Berkeley unwilling to play ball. And they it actually requiring that. The governor acquiesced whose demands in order to grant legitimacy to his cause bacon needed to be clear that he wasn't there messing around Bagan followed Berkeley back to his house. Let him know that. Failure to comply to the demands of the people would result in Bacon's forces killing the whole lot of them. Berkeley unmoved shut the door and big face with the bowl. Back in begins court. The general ordered his men to present arms and aim them at the burgess his so a quickly of the land here. Berkeley is shut up inside of his house pouting. The members of the House of Burgess are watching from the window of the Assembly House with intrigue bigoted at his men have now turned towards them on are aiming their weapons at those same assembly members watching with intrigue intrigue quickly turns to fear for the assemblymen who are not interested in being shot despite Berkeley's wish for them to send from beside him. The assembly quickly yells back that they will find a way to give picking what he wants. Just please don't shoot us with the governor broken and the assembly just wanting to avoid being shot big it was now free to dictate its terms bacon needing to protect his victory. Set his men around Jamestown to keep a constant watch.

"It is not until sixteen fifty eight. That claiborne is kicked off the island for good as an interesting side. Note Virginia. Continue you to officially hold the position that the island was their territory right up until seventeen seventy six after Baltimore seized Kent Island in Sixteen thirty five the call it is there were going to want their do representation in the legislature however due to the location on the island getting to the assembly at Saint. Mary's was difficult about a practical level. This leads the colonists on the island who said a representative to put forth their interests instead of them trying to personally make it to the assembly. This of course really had become the story across the colonies we see representative assembly spread throughout the colonial United States. As we move on in our story. Sorry we are going to continue to see the growth and evolution of the representative form of government. which eventually is going to accumulate in the continental congress? Interestingly interestingly in this case one of the first acts we see past and one that Baltimore intelligently wasn't about the veto wasn't oath of loyalty towards Charles. The first the concern in England is that the Connie's were going to become a haven for radicals which is something that the Maryland contests hoped to avoid. I mentioned this because we are obviously looking for trends here. That are going to explain the road to the revolution however this does as a reminder that in these sixteen forty s independence just isn't and something that was on their radar. As was the case in Virginia Maryland quickly grew into an area dominated by colonists who owned large tracts of wind with an economy centered centered around tobacco likewise it wasn't sixteen o seven anymore and the colonist understood that well profits are wonderful. Rowing food is also something that's probably probably worth doing. Colonist now had decades of knowledge from Jamestown out their disposal and Marylin quickly thrived. Things did become far more tenuous during the early part of the sixteen forties however Leonard Calvert did return to England during sixteen forty two in. What was the early phases of the English? Civil Wars with Baltimore mood was seemingly to Charles unable to get his correspondence across the Atlantic and Leonard. Having trouble back home Maryland was essentially left without any any meaningful leadership with anti-catholic sediments or any high people were quick to take advantage of the situation with Baltimore and his brother Leonard Calvert now all the way across the Atlantic there was a vacuum that suddenly appeared in Maryland's leadership inside of Maryland. It was Richard Ingle a columnist tobacco trader who decided to step into the void. ingle quickly Saint Mary's in the name of the Protestants instance. Also and I'm guessing. This does not come with much shock. William Claiborne seized on this opportunity and quickly retook. Kent Island something that he wasted exactly zero seconds. Doing it would take nearly two years for a Leonard to regain full control over the colony and he would only actually manage energy with help from governor Berkeley Virginia the period of infighting between the Catholics and the Protestants that occurred in the colony over the two year period made Baltimore. I realized that change was needed. The answer came in the form of a document promising religious toleration in the colony the act concerning religion did had several things I m most importantly it was a method whereby Baltimore could prove that he was not an enemy to the now post civil war only Protestant England and sixteen forty nine was not a wonderful time to be at the head of a supposed Catholic haven. That was the kind of thing that would draw unwanted attention towards Baltimore in this bill therefore promise that his colony would offer full religious tolerance to Christians which was meant to pacify parliament that this was not a Catholic colony money at the same time however there was pragmatic reasons for this as well. Maryland never really became the Catholic refuge that Baltimore had intended and it had always been overwhelmingly Protestant this act on. His face was meant to protect the minority group within the colony. What really however made at this age master stroke of genius is that the Catholics were in fact that minority group? It was always the Protestants who had been the majority. What Baltimore two more was able to do? Here was passive act where he was seemingly giving lip service to protecting the rights of the Protestants well in actuality protecting the rights of that minority ignored group of Catholics. The situation in Maryland would grow more muddled during the sixteen fifty s when the English forces came and attempted to seize control of Virginia in Virginia. If you recall from season had remained steadfast in their loyalty to Charles the first and upon his death to house Stewart while the loyalties of Maryland Maryland were more ambiguous than what was going on in Virginia Maryland unfortunately was just in the wrong place at the wrong time combined. With an influx of puritans he inauguration under the newly enacted act considering religion Maryland quickly fell under control. Baltimore was able to maintain authority and portions of the colony. While puritans ends seeking to form a society like New England controlled the rest. Baltimore eventually made his pleas for help to Oliver Cromwell personally Krummel. Obviously Fli was aware that he had to keep the major lords of England. Happy and had little interesting getting on the wrong side of Baltimore. He was tired of war and was not terribly interested in starting and another one at the same time cromwell appeared in himself you. The American periods as often acting excessively a compromise was eventually reached which saw crumble reinstate Baltimore into power while at the same time getting Baltimore to agree to a full pardon for those who had seized the colony as a result the Maryland. Puritans begrudgingly accepted the act concerning religion politically. This is how the situation is going to stay for. The near future Maryland Maryland would remain tolerant of all Christian religions and would manage to avoid becoming a period in haven at the same time however Maryland never does become the Catholic half the colony either. Protestants always outnumbered the Catholics by a relatively large margin. Okay with that. I think we have Maryland on solid footing that we can move forward in our story and not be totally lost when we return there in time with this mistake remedied. We can move forward and spend the next next few episodes introducing the Carolinas. So I will see you all back. You're in two weeks time and we will dive into the Carolinas and get another colony about its feet. I appreciate you all listening and I will see you back here in two.

"Hello and welcome to the political history of the United added States episode two point one. The quakers welcome back to the political history. Three of the United States less than we focused our efforts on the colonial origin story. We examined the reasons why the English were seeking to form North American colonies. The first settlers were generally what kind of face they met this season. We are coming into a much different situation. The colonies are more stable. They're growing in life though still far from easy is far less treacherous than let's say Jamestown in sixteen o nine before we go any further. I want to take just a moment to welcome any new listeners listeners. Who are making this their first episode for those of you who fall into this camp? I want to advise you that this would be a good place to pause this episode and go back now. Of course. Yeah I would encourage you to listen to all thirty two episodes of season however if that just isn't what you're looking for at least checkout episodes one point thirty one and one point thirty two which are season in review during those episodes I give an overview of the things we have talked about and discussed the major themes that came up throughout the course source of the first season. It should help. Make sure that you're caught up with all the things that we will be discussing this season. I also want to mention before we move any further that I have made a couple of changes. Take the audio setup. Now the good news is that with sometime. I do think the audio start Saudi la better. The problem however is that I'm learning how to use all of this new equipment on the fly. Well I believe that over the next few episodes you will start to notice incremental improvements. Please be aware that there may be the occasional audio audio gaffe and I am working on it. If the first season of the show was about the con- he's been established and moving towards stability. This season is going to be starkly. Starkly different the period following the restoration of the Stuart Monarchy in the sixteen sixty s up until the glorious revolution is a period of great turmoil in English. North America America we are going to see. Colonial revolts against the corrupt government in Virginia. During bigots rebellion we are going to look at King Philip's war Massachusetts and the long term consequences of that war we will look at the increasing fears attempts to get control of Massachusetts as the colony becomes dangerously. Asleep independent this period of uprisings is going to lead to the question that is going to come up from time to time. What is the role of the North American colonies in the greater English Empire? This question is going to become a core concern for several generations and will ultimately be a question being asked based on the eve of the American revolution beyond the colony's experiencing serious and often violent growing pains the colonies are going to continue to grow and change during during the season. We are going to see new. Connie sprout up specifically in Carolina in Pennsylvania to the North New Netherland is going to get captured by the English this season. AH WE'LL BECOME NEW YORK. All of this is going on under the backdrop of increasing tension in the colonies as well as back home in England. We spent much of last season looking at the different groups that emerged in came to form the American colonies this week to start off the brand new season. We are going to do you. Something radical and look at a group of people who came over to the American colonies and became part of the fabric of colonial America. Okay so we are not not really going to be doing anything much different today than what we did. All of last season the new group that we are going to introduce today which you probably figured out from the episode title. Real are the quakers just as the puritans came to define life New England. The quakers are going to help define the story of the middle colonies and their experience so without further ado. Let's dive into the quakers. The first question that we must answer is what. The heck is a quaker following the end of the English English civil war. There was a set in proliferation of religious groups. Throughout England the sudden appearance of different religious groups was the result of William Laud being removed from power our and the puritans in parliament taking control of England drain the years of Charles. The first personal rule religious persecution in England was high well the puritans bore or the brunt of it largely due to their prominence inside of parliament there were other groups that existed on the fringe of society not wanting to come into the open due to the very a real risk of persecution. They largely remained small and quiet drain the years before the English civil wars following the civil wars however much of the immediate risk of persecution persecution diminished which allow these various groups to emerge from the shadows. This isn't necessarily to say that. They found themselves welcomed with open arms. The puritans now control the government however will they still found themselves generally disliked and not trusted by those empower persecution. At least I was less of a concern. Keep in mind though that we are talking about ingle improper right now and not the American colonies more on that later today day. Among these new religious leaders was a young man from lyster. Shire England named George Fox Board in Sixteen Twenty four bucks grew up up any world dominated by religious persecution political strife and eventually civil war Leicester Shire itself was a heavily puritan part of England during during this era something that undoubtedly affected young Fox. George Fox would have been a child throughout much of the persecution being carried out by laude and would have been a teenager and young adult during the civil wars with this new found freedom box felt free to pursue his own particular brand of protestantism his Originally known as the Religious Society of friends which would become better known as the quakers now there are several versions out there of Y. Hey this group ended up being called the quakers however the most repeated version I kept coming across. Is that the followers of the Religious Society of friends would often uncontrollably ably shake during their religious experiences and that the term quakers is referring to that regardless of the origins of the term the quakers were one of numerous new religious sects spreading throughout England. The quakers were in extreme version of the Protestants and in some key ways held much more in common with the periods or example. Both groups were desperately see name. More pure form of Christianity both wanted to do away with with the perceived decadence of the Catholic Church especially as they saw its influence in the Anglican Church. However before you go thinking that the quakers and the puritans make good bedfellows there is a very key difference that is going to all but ensured that the two groups would remain on very different sides of the fence the periods? If you recall believed that predetermination meant that God had selected those to be saved from birth. Nothing you could do on earth could change that outcome quakers on the any other hand believed that everybody could be saved as people all possess the inner light of God. quakers believed that the pathway to salvation was through an individual's Joel's own goodness and the communal prayer of the greater group. They did not therefore believe in the importance of any kind of formal priesthood Bazzi Churches or even the Bible after all who needs the Bible when they already possess the inner light of God now if the periods had been NCAA more pure version of the church this is like tenfold pass. That quakers viewed any kind of formal religious strictures as being not only a necessary but directly contrary to their own practices quakers with their belief in their own. Goodness being paramount refused to kill people even in self defense as that detracted directly from their goodness going a step further. They also refuse to pay taxes for the communal defense as they wanted nothing to to do with the death of another. Furthermore they wouldn't take an oath on a Bible as it made for the insinuation that when they were not swearing on the Bible that they were lying and just to make things so much easier for their eventual persecutors. They went around wearing all black so they were easy to identify. These beliefs were shocking to just about everybody outside of their congregation and made the quakers ripe targets for persecution. The puritans were always wanting a more simple apple church brief from the decades. They saw the roaming church however abandoning texts like the Bible. How much of the legal system in Massachusetts was based based on Biblical Law? And here's a group that is just going to bypass that altogether this is all very direct affront to everything that they were trying to do in new eland when winthrop wrote about a city on the hill. A deviation like the quakers were certainly not part of the equation now normally. This is where I would dive of into the reasons about why the quakers decided to come to colonial America. But I'm going to hold off on that for now. I want to continue to explore the early relationship between the quakers and the puritans because I think it tells us a whole lot more about the situation in the early years of New England plus the number of quakers is going to remain relatively relatively low initially down the road a bit when we come to William Penn anymore substantial immigration into Pennsylvania. We will discuss the reasons behind the immigration Lee initial settlement of quakers in the colonial United States was in Massachusetts. We are going to focus on this today and discussed the relationship between those early early quakers and the members of the Bay Colony Church. This relationship is going to prove to be a very good glimpse into the religious situation in New England and is ultimately going going to help lay the foundation for many of the struggles that we're going to see happen in New England over the next fifty years if you listened at all last season when you know that Massachusetts is not really known for its religious freedom and expression and that it is a trend. That is not going to improve any time soon soon. You things better illustrate the feelings of the puritans towards the quakers more than a situation occurring with the con- Mary dire very dire was born sometime in the early seventeenth century and married a wealthy man from London.

"Hello and welcome to the political past several episodes I have mentioned the tribe and the growing workloads that had begun to dominate New England this week it is time for us to get down into the war and examining conflict we'll come to long defined the relationship between the English New England and the local Indian tribes this war stands out as the first major engagement we see between the native aircraft and the English in New England well there was that incident between the Plymouth colony and the massacre it was a gusset that remains an isolated incident and never developed into a full fledged war like we're going to see breakout in sixteen thirty six the end of the war will also mark a relatively long term peace between the native American and the English which would last for nearly forty years until the outbreak of King Philip's war by and large the relationship between the native Americans and the English Massachusetts was A decent things weren't perfect recall miles standish and the weather gusset incident however what came out of West Agus it was widespread distrust of the pilgrims trade was affected and nobody really wanted anything to do with them what didn't do however was spur on any future reprisals conflicts certainly nothing like the sixteen twenty two massacre in Jamestown had ever occurred following the West gusset incident the local Indians never really seen taking a very aggressive stance towards settlers and for the most part a peaceful issue ship for him during the first decade and a half throughout New England well we can debate why the call in New England had so much better relationships with the Indians than down Jamestown Naronha down to a single thing is going to be impossible however you can point to the fact that in New England there is not a person anywhere near as powerful as say powered or Shinkin up in the years before the programs a devastating series of disease had absolutely ravaged the New England tribes these diseases simply decimated them this would have been a huge deal for the English rush because the New England tribes were nowhere near Prime fighting shape there is no definitive answer of when the nation moved into New England however there is some evidence pointing to the they may have been relative newcomers to the region we know for example that none of the other Indian nations in the region were terribly anxious to come to their aid during the war and in fact in many cases of banded together with the English to fight against the tribe if you recall from last time the river tribes in Connecticut had been anxious enough that they asked the English to come settle along the river likely as a check against growing aggression from the quotes tensions would however begin to rise in sixteen thirty four amongst English the Captain Johnston was murdered by the Watts the tread claimed that this was done in retribution for a Dutch murder of one of their shaman stone was English at Dutch however that might have been something lost upon the quotes this is an interesting position for the request to have taken in many ways as we will see in a moment there might have been some truth to the idea that quads didn't want to face the fury of the English and that this accidental killing story is just that a story this gets us to the yeah that is important here that we are careful not to make mistakes and quit stone and his actions on the same mission where stone was killed he had taken to quash his hostages enforce them to act as navigators it was the night that he took the hostages that a group of quads boarded stones ship free the hostages and then killed stone and some of his men touch it's largely a secondary point stone had taken quite sausage and regardless of the motivation of Quatz be a mission for rescue retribution stone and his men were now dead either way at this point we are now left with a dead colonist an-and upset leadership group back in Massachusetts even in the best of times there was always a layer of nerves when it came to dealing with the Indians ever since the sixteen twenty two massacre in Jamestown colonists remained acutely aware of the dangers of native population since way back in episode eighteen when we were talking about Plymouth during the sixteen twenty s I talked about John Oldham if you recall John Oldham was seen as a rabble rouser and Plymouth eventually he was accused by William Bradford of working with the Minister John Linford to undermine and destroy the Plymouth Government Oldham was literally chased out breath well people attempted to beat him with the butts of their muskets I had promised that in that episode Oldham would make one more appearance in this podcast just to quickly die if you have been sitting around for the past six episodes wondering when I was going to get back to John Oldham and his death well the time is now upon us following being chased from Plymouth Tom had managed to become a respected member in the Bay Connie aunt seems to have done rather well for himself having established himself as a well respected trader the English were already upset that the quotes had failed to turn over two stones murderers and this goes along with additional tensions that had really formed in the past few years as a result of the European expansion the mystic river valley of the southeastern portion of Connecticut with the because failing to turn over captain stones murderers things were quickly spiral rolling out of control a fever pitch was reached in May of Sixteen thirty six a May twentieth trader named John Gap Spotted Oldham's boat which was being swarmed with Indians Oldham had been traveling on a training mission with the Narragansett when his boat was attacked according to the account later from Gallup he autumn's very recently killed body Gallup described a grisly scene not only with Oldham debt but the evidence was that the Indians had attempted to cut off his limbs here is where everybody comes to a crossroads a May Twentieth Sixteen thirty six but day that Oldham was killed were with because it was looking increasingly likely a clue that imminent comes from Lieutenant Lying Gardner Gerner was the first commander of Fort Saybrook for Saybrook is located along the southern coast of Connecticut Gerner early so you're in sixteen thirty six had baked the bay colony to exercise leniency and not go out and do something to provoke war with the Quatz at least until he could finish his vacation as he felt that his location at the furthest point of the Connecticut River would make him a prime target for fighting which ultimately would be correct about the these warnings were issued before the Oldham killing this means that by the time John Oldham was killed were was already looking like a likely outcome the problem however is is that there is very little evidence to show that Oldham had been killed by the Quad tribe even at the time there were a lot of people who felt that the evidence implicating the quotes in the murderer was weak at best decisions therefore had to be made on if they were going to place the blame on the because and use it as justification for what already seemed like an inevitable war the evidence actually suggests that the murder was carried out by the NARRAGANSETT S- informants among the tri point to the Narragansett says being the culprits and it does seem that a year or so after the killing a minor chief was put to death by the Greater Narragansett tribe for being the leader in the killing of Oldham the problem here is that despite the truth being that the quad probably had nothing at all to do with the death of Oldham they English were angry and they wanted revenge the PA- quads were already causing enough problems for the English and right or wrong the English now had their justification for war the question now becomes why did the English come looking for a fight if as many sources suggest the cause of the quart was largely protect jewel. Why did the English want to pick the fight in the first place to answer this the first question is to figure out why Eldon found himself in a position like this during the sixteen thirty s a bitter rivalry emerged between the NARRAGANSETT and the quotes as a major trader oh sides would have covered a working with all them and more importantly wanted to assure that Oldham didn't switch sides and help the enemy if the information we have is correct and it was aerob- Narragansett who killed all them who was at the time trading with them it is possible that the Narragansett it's believed that Oldham had or was planning to switch side to the quads regardless it is important to remember that for the Narragansett their biggest rival was the book what's getting the English to ally with them during the war was boom that could potentially pay huge dividends in the future they could effectively eliminate one of their hated rivals the Narragansett it's were also working with a pretty amount of cover here it was hard for the colonial leadership to believe that the Narragansett would set out on some grand conspiracy to kill one of their most valued trading partners mm-hmm was worth a lot to the Narragansett economically on the surface at least killing him made little sense they would eliminate a close trading partner while at the same time bringing the bank the anger to their doorstep the biggest question therefore is how does all of this ultimately fell upon the shoulders of the quotes well for one thing the English disliked the quads more than disliked the Narragansett for the English eight war would provide them with the opportunity to further cement their place in New England a chance to show the natives the might of year Qian style warfare regardless of who they fought the message wouldn't be lost on anybody the English lacked the manpower for a two front war against both the there weren't enemy that had more value in terms of the villages and wealth that they possessed the quads were any more strategic location for the English as well defeating the so in one corner you have a harder fight with less sizeable wealth available and not sitting in a strategic position that the English cared about nearly as much in the other corner you had a tribe that was universally hated by the other trump's new England they had more wealth to capture and they held important strategic point for the English to check dot expansion now of course it's not going to be as cut and dry as the English settlers just declaring war is that the Massachusetts Bay Colony formed the standing council which was responsible for all military matters under the leadership of John winthrop junior the son of John with rope and ultimatum was given to the quotes the quads had to predictably hand over the killers of captain stone at the same time there was a demand for a greater amount of tribute to be paid the this generally reflected a sixteen thirty four treaty which was put into place after the killing of captain stone except this time there was more tribute involved the quads predictably ignored these demands and one month after the ultimatum of his shoot the opening salvos of Qua- war were fired fighting began on August twenty fifth sixteen thirty six is located off the eastern shore of Long Island roughly sitting a straight line away between the point of Montauk Martha's vineyard the second in command was kept in jail underhill who was kind enough to leave behind a history of his involvement underhill makes clear that these strike on block island was to seek retribution Oldham the first strike involved awesome ninety Englishman who struck the island with vengeance in strict kill all native mills this plays out like a scorched earth campaign the English only she managed to kill around a dozen men but they were able to burn villages and creating general havoc most of the Indians had fled into the woods rather than trying to engage with the English the.

"For a younger public like the United States. There was genuine concern seeing where small r republicanism can lead. So it a time where the French were basically horrifying everybody Wilson was interested in moving the narrative away from the French version of democracy and something more in line with the ideals of John Locke John Quincy Adams would pick up the mantle of Wilson. And we'll continue to retake the narrative of the compact after being asked to speak in Plymouth on founders day Quincy Adams lead with the importance of the compact Quincy Adams was interested in taking the compact and Lena back to the days of Anglo Saxon England as something more peer he described the Norman conquerors as being tyrants in this movie is able to connect the. Compact back to English roots hence moving away from her. So and yet at the same time he manages to avoid Lincoln it to something directly British in nature, obviously, not wanting to give them that propaganda vantage back with compact later, the Mayflower compact is going to become a core piece of the Whigs anti Jacksonian rhetoric. We're going to cover all this in depth Zo don't stress too much right now about this. I'm just trying to gloss over to give you an idea of what's going on. To sum all of this up. This answer is this. The Mayflower compact finds it's important because different factions both domestic at abroad sought to use it as a tool of propaganda. The British wanted to use the compact further own purposes to show that the original pilgrims had actually been highly loyal supporters of the crown the Americans on the other hand wanted to show that the pilgrims were something entirely different. The contact was used to argue for different types of democracy, specifically as a tool to distance the young nation from the French form of democracy that had ended up embroiling Franson revolution. And then later it was used to rally gets Jacksonian ISM in the Mayflower compact became currency in this war of propaganda throughout this process. The Mayflower compact ended up becoming much more than it actually wasn't reality. The reputation remains to this day. The Mayflower compact continues to sit in a position where it is often taught as being an early example of. Constitutionalism. That is going to come to define the United States later on the last several minutes of this podcast of basically been a sneak peek at what will make significant chunk of future seasons. So don't stress too much about following along with the different political views or the different political philosophy. This is all incredibly interesting and truth be told is the driving force. Behind wise started this podcast in the first place. We are going to spend eight ton of time talking about the political views in place right after the formation of the United States. In fact, I suspect that we are going to spend nearly an entire season discussing these topics. So if you have absolutely no clue why the Whigs are anti Jacksonian just hang with me. I promise we're going to get there today was just a situation where I wanted to introduce where the mythology of the Mayflower compact formed, and it required me to jump ahead a little bit in our story. The Mayflower compact continues to stand as one of the key political documents in United States history. In so many ways it is presented as that first shot in what would come to define New England as the revolution approached. However, the reality is that the compact it self was really something that was created to ensure some level of cooperation in the new colony and solve several of the problems that the passengers had vowed upon landing outside the patent. The compact is a testament to the cooperation of the groups that did not see eye to eye. However, the comments are viable trumped everything as an opening salvo of radicalism in New England. The Mayflower compact does fall short the legend of the document is even born into Loyd eighteenth and early nineteenth century when multiple sides attempted to seize on the compact for propaganda reasons, it is through this battle to control the narrative of what the Mayflower compact actually meant that the compact itself is going to become part of the origin story of the future United States. And that is a position that it continues to hold up to this day and will likely. Continue to hold into the future. Next time. We are going to settle down in the new Khania Plymouth and look at what those first early years brought so with that I will see you back here in two weeks time when we usher are pilgrims off of the ship and onto the shores of Plymouth until then I hope you have a fantastic two weeks. And I appreciate all you who've taken the time to tune in. And listen to this podcast. Thank you.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point fifteen the Mayflower combat. Picking up from where we last left off two weeks ago, we had left our settlers hanging out as they began their journey across the Atlantic. This week we are going to pick up with our pilgrims as they make their way across the Atlantic to their new homes, we are gonna spend much of this week focusing on what is often seen as one of the first political documents formed in the North American colonies, specifically the Mayflower compact, the Mayflower compact is often portrayed as this early example of the democratic ideals that will come to find the struggles of the future United States today. I'm gonna focus on some of those early politics amongst the pilgrims. We are going to spend some time looking at the myth of the Mayflower compact and how it is portrayed today. We are going to look at the document itself. And what it did in reality. Finally, we're going to turn back to the Mayflower compact and tried to dissect where the legend surrounded it actually comes from. So then without further delay. Let's just dive right back into our story. Every single year thousands of American school children. Learn about the Mayflower typically around thanksgiving time, we'll Jamestown did proceed Plymouth buy some thirty years. It is the Mayflower that is often presented as being that inaugural trip to the new world for journey that is so central to the majority of the United States. We know shockingly little about it. In fact, most everything that we know about the journey itself comes from William Bradford's writing. And even then Bradford himself is surprisingly quiet on the journey. Ran into the conditions onboard. Bradford does make a brief mention of the combined group now aboard the Mayflower before discussing the general health aboard the ship. There is a mention this. He cygnus was a constant problem and Bradford as always takes the time to tell a charming tale of these special work of God's providence. I'm just gonna go ahead and quote Bradford directly here because frankly, he tells the story better than I ever could. And just a note, you might notice that over the next couple episodes. There is going to be a sharp. Crease in me reading quotes. This isn't really something. I plan to do long term. But when it comes to Plymouth, we are lucky enough to have two excellent primary sources we have Bradford's of Plymouth plantation, which is what I'm about to quote from. And we also have Bradford and Edward winslow's writing in more relations. So as I said don't be shocked when you start hearing an increasing number of quotes for me. I don't think this is going to be long term kind of deal. But let's use what we've got. Okay. Returning to William Bradford talking about conditions on the Mayflower. He says it was a proud and very profane. Young man, one of the seamen a lessee able body which made him all the more haunting e would always become acting on the poor people in their cygnus, cursing them daily with grievous exhortations and did not let to tell them that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journeys in and to make Mary with what they have. And if they were jelly reproved, he would curse and swear most. Bitterly. But it please God before they came half seas over to this young man with a grievous disease of which he died in a desperate manner. And so was himself. The first was thrown overboard, thus his curses light on his own head. And it was an astonishment to all his fellows for they noted. It it had to be the just hand of God upon him. So yeah, that's pretty uplifting story, I bring it up for a couple of reasons I it does give some insight into the state of things aboard the Mayflower. It clues us in that. There was some amount of disease on board. And that death was an actual risk. It's also a good insight into the group itself and gives a working idea of the inner thoughts of Bradford all in all gives us at least some picture of life and the tensions aboard the Mayflower beyond. Just some joyous. Talk of the ships leading jerk getting sick dine in being thrown overboard. Braford? Would also write about what you would probably expect. There's a lot of talk about the dangerous crosswinds seasick. Kness and the general misery that existed onboard Bradford routinely writes about how the settlers survived and kept going forward in the name of God. It is interesting to note that for the most part there isn't much talk about widespread, death and disease. So well, we know that at least one guy did succumb to illness. And it is probably not out of the question that the conditions on board were unless insanitary there does not really seem to be a widespread dying be on. However, there really isn't a ten that we know about the journey itself. Bradford spends only two pages reading about the Mayflower. However through him. We do get an idea of those conditions on November sixteen twenty the Mayflower encountered Cape Cod. Cape Cod was not in a no place upon its discovery. John Smith had founded and named Cape James, however, by the time pilgrim, Scott there the Cape Cod. Name was pretty much accepted. Fishermen had named the area for the large number of cod in the valuable fishing waters. Right off the coast, the journey full had taken sixty. Five days and had landed the pilgrims just in time to face a potential New England winter the first problem that the pilgrims had upon arriving is that they were in the wrong place. Now originally they had planned to set up camp closer to the mouth of the Hudson. Hosver they were a ways north of that. In fact, the settlers were moving towards the Hudson because they didn't actually hold a pattern to settle land in Cape Cod. The ship's captain Christopher Jones recognizing. This fact did attempt to make his way south to the mouth of the Hudson where they were supposed to be however would conditions of the passengers now declining dangerous and uncharted shores and uncooperative wind Jones made the call to return and settle Cape Cod to say that these settlers were upset about

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode. One point ten the starving time. Less time. We left off discussing those first several years of the Jamestown colony the first several years were conflated inside a majority of the new settlers die due to the harsh conditions and at the same time the relationship between the settlers and local powered and Indians was tented best and downright hostile at worst. By the new sixty-nine? The Connie was approaching what will become the single worst time in the history of the Jimmy Connie up to that date today. This period has become known as the starving time, and is going to signify the low Mark for the colony John Smith by the same had left the colony and relations with powered into becomes so bad that is John Ratcliffe skinned alive in December of sixty nine combined with the ongoing issues of survey shin disease is going to see the population of the colony plummet the stirring time very nearly marks. The end of the Jamestown colony the colonists. At one point abandoned, the colony and make their way to ships having had enough trying to survive in Virginia. Of course today, we know that they don't end up actually leaving in fact, following the speed the colony will very slowly at times, turn the corner and begin moving towards something that resembles viable settlement for today. We are going to spend our time looking at the starving time. Specifically, I wanna look at three primary aspects. I we're. Going to look at the traditional telling of the story of that winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten what were the causes? How bad did it get and how did it? Resolve second. We are going to discuss the realities of the starving time. I plan on looking at the question of how accurate is that traditional telling? And what problems may exist with it? Finally, we're going to look at the end result. The starving time is going to have a major effect on the colony in a number of ways, and we are going to examine how these changes moving. Forward are going to completely change the direction of the Regina company and the colony as a whole. I want to start this week by looking at the winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten we're going to Japan by looking at that traditional telling before doubling back looking at some of the causes in many ways is difficult to get a great idea of what occurred during that winter the sources during the timer thin, and there is something to be said about a sense of cessation. Listen that's going to creep into the eventual telling of the event on the ground. The best source is going to be the colonies acting President George Percy Percy would write about the surveys in the terrible conditions at Jamestown during that winter. I'm going to read a quote from perceives book a true relation of the proceedings and occurrences of moment, which have happened emerging from the time, sir. Thomas gates was shipwrecked Bermuda anno sixteen o nine until my departure out of the country, which was anno domini sixteen twelve and yeah, that's an awesome book title sound super exciting, quote is as follows now all of us are Jamestown began feeling that sharp prick of hunger, which no. Man, truly describe, but which he have tasted the bitterness. They're up a world of miseries and suit as the sequel will express to you in so much that some to satisfy their hunger. Have rubbed the store for which I have caused them to be executed then having fed upon the horses and other beasts long as they lasted we were glad to make shift with vermin as dogs, cats, and rats, and mice always fish that came to net to satisfy the cruel hunger. As the boot shoes or any other leather some could come by. And those being spent in devoured somewhere force to search the woods feed upon serpents and snakes and to dig the earth for wild and unknown routes where many of our men were cut off and slain by the savages and now famine beginning to ghastly impale in every face that was nothing to be spared to maintain life and to do those things which seem incredible as to dig up dead corpses out of graves into eat them and. Some have looked up the blood which have fallen from their week fellows and amongst the rest. This was the most lamentable that one of our colony murdered his wife rip the child out of her womb and threw it into the river. And after that chop the other pieces salted her for his food. The same not being discovered before he had eaten her thereof for the cruel. Inhumane fact, I judged him to be executed the knowledge of the debate enforce from him by torture having hung by his thumbs with the weight at his feet a quarter of an hour before he would confess the same. George Percy was the best source on the ground at the time. Other information we get from the events come from John Smith's writings and sixteen twenty four. And in a moment, I'm going to share this account with you. But I wanna give a pair of warnings on it. I I Jon Smith left a few months earlier in the fall of sixty nine. So he was back in England in the winter of sixty nine sixteen ten rolled. Round. Likewise. He is writing this account is sixteen twenty four a full fourteen years after the events actually took place. Now, we're gonna talk more in a few minutes about the problems with the sources, including Smith. But it's something that I wanna be front about Smith wrote in the general history of Regina New England in the summer isles that neigh so great was our famine that a savage we Slough Mberi the poor sort took him up again and ate him. And so did divers one another boiled stewed with roots and herbs and amongst the rest to kill his wife powdered her and eat him part of her before it was known for which he was executed as he will deserved now. Whether she was better roasted boiled or carbonaro, I do not know, but of such a dishes, powdered wife, I have never heard of this was that time which still to this day. We call the starving time. It were to vile to say and scarce to be believed what we endured. But the Cajun was our own for want of providence industry and government and not the Baroness and defect of the country. As is generally supposed for till then in three years for the numbers were landed us, we have never from England provision efficient for six months, though, it seemed by the Bill of lading sufficient sent us such a glut is the seat and said goodfellas the Mariners we as little tasted of great proportions cintas as they of our want miseries yet notwithstanding the ever over swayed and ruled the business though, we endured all that is said and chiefly lived on what this good country naturally. Afforded yet. Had we been even paradise itself with these governors. It would not have been much better with us yet. There was amongst us. Who had they been the government as kept Smith appointed? But that they could not maintain. It would surely have. Kept us from those extremes of misery this intend as more would have supplanted us all with death before we go any further. If you're wondering what does just myth mean when he asked was carbonaro that translates roughly into what she barbecued. So yes, that would in fact be just a little bit of cannibalism humor from our good friend John's Smith between the accounts of Smith emptied is possible to get a sense of devastation that the winter of sixty nine sixteen
