"He might don which is awesome about going to get the treasure but we also have to look at from spiritual standpoint right. This is after all spiritual guy who's speaking to a spiritual religious group and he's saying and he never backs down from this he's saying vespasian is the messiah he sang. All of our jewish traditions should be rewritten. So that the station and the emperor. And this i think is really a turning point for the whole thing because it points to me clearly. An attempt to socially engineer to kind of quell the masses to reengineer their religion as a way of controlling neck. Do you remember coming across that. In josephus because i can send you mislead the exact. So i'm more cynical about the newark's i think i think you'll see his basically. He got religion or spirituality because he was on the verge of having commit suicide the rest of that story not only did he saved himself but he was able to convince the romans to free about two hundred of his friends and family again. You know these people were all ready to be executed. They were in prison camp. Whatever and he walks in basis. You you you you. They're all free and they all get to go back to wrong with and so i think what happened was he sold his soul in that situation. It wasn't it wasn't a spiritual transformation it was basically self preservations my only chance to get out of this predicament with my friends and family by the way we can all go back to roman start over again is i gotta sell this guy because beijing on the belief that i think he's the next. The prophesied one whatever and and make it happen and once i do make it happen now. All of a sudden. I'm the favourite son at it. Turns out he was. He was adopted into the family was given his own chalet. Gets the right is his histories and things are great. But i guess i'm more cynical about it. I don't think it was spiritual as much as it was self preservation kind of saying the same thing kind of different way but not maybe not exactly because if you take the cynical approach and say that it wasn't a genuine spiritual transformation which i i would agree with you. Then i think it's hard to Not say that. It was engineered by the romans. Because this is what the romans did right with every turn or co op people's religion. They go in and say. Hey you know what turns out you have these gods. We have kind of the same god. So we're really not that different after all so the idea of a this co-opting of your most sacred beliefs as a way of controlling. You is kind of well established. So i think that that becomes the only way to understand. Josephus is that he's writing on behalf of the romans because otherwise he is no. He really has no reason to do this. Or maybe put it a different way the benefits for rome for the potential of doing. This are just fantastic. I think one of the reasons that we don't quite grab onto it so much is it's a failed proposition right. Even though they bring over the he brings over his two hundred and they probably bring over fifty thousand slaves. There isn't this mass conversion to this new idea that this basin is is the messiah. The jews don't leave their religion in masses as the second revolt says to understand it as anything less than an attempt to engineer the religion to re to co opted i to me. That's kind of self evident. What do you think. I don't think would be very much in this at all..

"That was the slogan So one of the possibilities and we also know by the way the during this uprising we know this from one of the dead sea scrolls all the congress role of iran. I'll which is actually not. Most of the are arthur. This is on copper and the school lists seventy or so locations of hidden temple treasure. Basically as as the romans came into put down the rebellion. The priestly families who are in charge of the temple so we better hide our treasures in our at our gold furnishings. Whatever before the romans come will retrieve them later and so they they made this list on positive the copper as to where these things were in case it went around to tell them survivors where to find all So one of the possibilities is i'm gonna sold seen the ninth. Legion goes to jerusalem puts down the revolt at some point. All jews are being either murdered or sold into slavery and the priestly family. Say timeout old. On ninth legion. Hold on guys you've gotta deal for you. We've got about one point. Five billion dollars in today's money worth of temple treasure and we want to get out of here. We need our lives saved. If you take us with you out of europe out of the meta training away from the emperor will give you the one point. Five billion and that. I thought made splaine how they ended up collectively. The romans and the jews have roman artifacts and we have jewish artifacts again. The hanukkah fort is a reason to the romans to build something like that will have other artifacts we can look at also without collectively. Explain how we have roman and jewish artifacts in the ohio valley in the second century. So that's again. That's a fiction writer in me putting pieces together. And that's speculative i. I can't say certain that happen. And that's why i say something happened. I'm not sure if i have it right. But that's definitely a possibility. He some evidence. Support that awesome. What have you found out about the relationship between the romans and the various jewish groups the groups in today because a lot of people don't understand this but Do today like all these client states in in the roman empire there's a lot of Kind of vichy. France thing going on you know like hey. The romans aren't so bad. And look at all the good things. And hey let's give unto caesar. What is caesar's kind of thing so it's not like that. So they have their rebellion flank and then they have their herod given to see what is in this time period at the second revolt. Would you did you dig up anything interesting about the relationship there because what you're speculating about. It is to me. Doesn't even sound like a time out time out. It sounds like a. Hey guys. here's an idea kind of thing you know. Well so the relationship with the romans and the end and the roman empire the jewish. This is all during a time period. Where.

"Like i said we don't spend a lot of time on this but to me. The evidence of the conspiracy is evident in what you just said in that at the at the management level that you're talking about yeah there's no conspiracy. I control your job dude. I control your tenure. I control what conferences you go to. Don't go to. It doesn't look it doesn't have to look like a conspiracy to you. It just looks like you. You know being able to go home and face her wife and say yeah before going to still be able to make mortgage payments but at a level above that which you just as you just talked about you said. The church wanted to control the narrative because they wanted to be in control. Well that's conspiratorial and clearly as right now as more and more gets revealed today about how completely corrupt the churches. But we don't ever wanna call the church on that you know. We still have to walk carefully in science you know. My thing has been this idea of controlling the narrative about consciousness that there can be no extended consciousness that any kind of spiritual experience that people are having completely the delusion it doesn't happen in the holding to that in the face of all evidence to country is conspiratorial. Its way to control and social engineer. People so i think this idea of when you look through the all this stuff from the social engineering lens and in and start accepting that and this is rome. This is what i love about row is that you know the romans do this. Two thousand years ago that when you about social engineering about controlling the people as an alternative to dominating the people through war we can dominate the people through beliefs and ideas and stuff like that so we don't have to kind of agree on that don't have to hash out any further because let's get back to come to the book a little bit indirectly and that's that this story about second century rome in judea is just..

"This is a fort shaped like a madora right. A minora oil lamp. That's a four. That was missing drawing from the army corps of engineers from eighteen twenty three in fort Fort works basically Ford itself is no longer there. But you can see that where the outline of the of the palisade would have been and whatnot the the the the outline of the old ford. This is eighteen. Twenty three in ohio and for folks to somebody's just interject for folks who can't say because most people's listen to this show don't watch it but The the minority is clearly clearly. Can't be anything else in this drawing and even the lamp can't be anything else so This is gonna kinda launches into a really interesting discussion but again i just wanted to emphasize eighteen. Twenty four army corps of engineers. Where did you find this document. The internet's great thing that a generation ago alex you i couldn't have done this research. It would have been impossible. You would have to go down in washington. Dc and and and crawl your way through the through the stacks and mike profusion whatnot. But everything's been digitized now so if you wanna look at army corps of engineers drawings go find him and it's really has made i get the question all the time. How come. we're just learning about a second century. Roman occupation or aspiration of america and the answer. Is the clues have always been out there. But individual research has been able to put their hands around or the one or two east of it because it was also scattered and spread out now with the internet. Someone like myself and come along. And and i can find fifteen or twenty artifacts incites in the matter of a few weeks on the internet whereas you know thirty years ago when it's taken me decades to do that. Yeah that's that's cool. I mean totally. I think there's a another reason for it. It's the obvious. Reason is that there's a narrative that people are following and You know if. I want to switch a little bit from talking about this excellent book that i really do want people to check out r- america because the research. I think you'll find if all intrigued by this point half hour into this interview that he got to read the book. Because it's all there all the links are there all the information's there. But i wanna try and pull the in a little bit of a different direction for selfish reasons for this project that i'm doing because what intrigued me about rx. America was second century. Rome and this strange relationship that it reveals about the relationship between the roman military and kind of a breakout of that the relationship between judea and rome but also before we even get there. I wanna go back to what you just said. I really suspicious because of my investigation. Science is that the extent to which this narrative is intentionally being controlled which is really kind of as we talked about the pre columbian thing but even controlled in the sense that you couldn't have written this. I'm not so sure you could have written this as a nonfiction book. What will you certainly if you were an academic historian you couldn't have written it and it's just what does that say about.

"Thing anymore so in half generation. We've actually made a lot of headway now. people realise. Yeah the north. Were definitely here to me. I always say people. We know for a fact the north of here in the earliest parts of the eleventh century. Leif eriksson all those icelandic sagas nor saad as we know they were here. We know they came down least as far as northern new finland. Now most experts say that lonzo meadow site which is to stop over point. They came down probably as far as mame runs. Look were sure of at least new brunswick. So they're right. The doorstep of new england already to me it would be more surprising over the next five hundred years after the north. Where here that. Nobody came back. That's way more surprising than the idea that people did like to meet five hundred years as great reasons to come over here. Trading mining cop whatever it was economic advantage that lots of all the land the land of of of ah plenty. There's plenty of great reasons for coming over here. And part of the human condition to to seek out new life. A new civilization as star trek says and so again the idea that the atlantic ocean was a barrier during times. and before. that's that's a fiction that the church wanted people to be afraid of falling off the edge of the earth that they crossed the atlantic but that was because they wanted to maintain control they wanted. They didn't want people exploring of being scientific. But most educated people understood that there were the earth was round and there were other lands across the atlantic and this goes back to ancient atlantis and whatever goes way back but again to me the takeaway. The surprising thing would have been if nobody came back between the norse and fourteen ninety two. That's almost five hundred years. That would be surprising to me will will. I think is kind of really interesting where you went there. A couple of ways. Day this one. You're pushing it way back. At least it seems to us. You're pushing way back and we'll dive into that in minute because you're pushing it back to the second century and you're pushing a role but let me just throw a couple of things that i picked up from a another interview that i heard you do because you have a kind of broad knowledge of all this stuff that i want to kind of tap into and that's that we've kind of moved from one kind of wacky paradigm that we shouldn't look before columbus and we've moved off of that and now we moved to the. Oh okay we can look to kind of the medieval period like you're saying and nor did it and you know what we want to stop there when really we have no reason to stop there like you point out the phoenicians who are the people in lebanon right and they were great seafarers and they kinda sailed all around in boats bigger than columbus. You could also point out that the whole easter island thing. I mean that's a harder ocean across and you got all that and then you've got all connections in south america. You also got all this other archaeological evidence in formula club instance it's popped up with you.

"Dave is an attorney turned historical fiction writer author of multiple amazon bestsellers and boston globe bestsellers including his latest. Which is probably headed in that direction. I think romera roman artifacts in america which is a great fiction story but also is kind of wrapped around this history or this kind of forbidden history. Kinda thing that. There's a lot of evidence. Archaeological findings other historical evidence. Highly suggestive of romans being in america in second century. So this is kind of right up my recent interest in this ancient history. I'm of course interested in where that takes us. In terms of consciousness and spirituality in some of these other things. But i was really really impressed with the with dave's work particularly what he brings as an an attorney. Who's used to kind of sorting through evidence. Translate as sorting through bullshit to get to the truth so i just thought it was a great opportunity and i really enjoyed the bullet which the book by the way you know. Just pull it up another one of those key. Free read on kindle limited now by hit of course by day's buluk. But if you want to read it for free and he did kindle unlimited. You can do that too so Without any further. David brody welcome to skeptical. Thanks so much for joining me. Thanks thank you for the kind words. Thank you for having me. I appreciate so.

"Running on water supplies mattei it. We compete this country. Might as well give up being forty seven days now how long the journal said it would not better one of the prisoners ahead. What you just love the romans. I know i do that. The short clip from a documentary on ancient rome. And that's vespasian talking about those pesky jews that he's trying to put down in the first volt and sixty six eighty and most importantly he's talking about that strange prisoner general josephus. Who makes all these amazing predictions. Boy i don't know where to begin. Folks you're going to hear a lot on this history of josephus. The basin the fake fake history. That's told to us that can be demonstrated is fake and can be demonstrated has some deep deep implications for what the real history probably was. It would take a long time to fill in all the gaps. And i can't really do it here. You're gonna get bits and pieces like normally doing this show and maybe you can help. Guide me towards how we can compile this into something meaningful. Maybe you can even help. Maybe you know more about these topics than i do. There are many of you out there that i know have some very specialized knowledge but i have a terrific interview to kick off the series. It's with a gentleman. I really like respect. And i think he's written a great book the chilin joy and he certainly has a fascinating story to tell about the romans in america in the second century and he has i would say overwhelming archaeological evidence it least compared to the mainstream historical narrative. Which i i gotta tell you. We didn't get into this with david leg. One little story he tells he has all this solid archaeology. These done coins that he's found forts that he's uncovered or the army corps of engineers have uncovered which date back to the second century. Date back to being in the hands of the romans in date back to having connections with jewish people in what he faces an opposition to that research from the mainstream the ordained history is unbelievable. Ridiculous like again like one of the explanations for mainstream history in terms of how these coins from the second century wind up in the ohio valley is maybe a bird flu over you know it had the coin in his beak and dropped it hub stiff. It is that maybe there was a flock of birds and they all had coins. Ma drop them in and around the same place another explanation. This is from mainstream history in order to prop up the ridiculous narrative that they need to promote on. This is maybe a coin collector went to the beach lost his coins on the beach and then they got washed up. They found like yeah. You know we're going to the beach. Louise swing by my safe deposit box of pick up my collection of golden roman coins. What's you know. it's funny except that.

Thanks for having us So you know, I was just kind of try to keep track of you do know numerous podcasts. And then you have done other podcasts.

It makes you strong on and keeps you regular has all the vitamins and nutrients that your body needs.

"Good afternoon from Washington. I'm Chuck Todd and this is the Chuck Todd Cast. The Democratic Twenty twenty field lost a few players this week notably Comma Harris and Steve Bullock. But did you know the former Congressman Joe. SESTAK was running. Well Anyway. He's not now now. The field is currently dominated by four frontrunners Biden Warren Sanders and budget with booed surging into first place in Iowa according to at least one poll and possibly even a ham. Then there's of course the Michael Bloomberg experiment here era of skipping the first four states house that shaking things up this week. Democrats in Congress. Meanwhile charge forward on impeachments beating toward the possible vote of articles of impeachment before Christmas so far the pennant impeachment probe in. The House has done little to change public opinion on this particular Republican support for the president which went it up in the beginning but has since tapered off so are Democrats playing a long or short game here and is there really any upside to either decision at this point politically Likley but then again maybe Republicans are bonus joining me now to discuss magazine correspondent Julia. Yaffe who's also currently writing a book on Russian women and and Washington Post national political correspondent. Hohmann who will recognize from your inbox with the daily to welcome to you both so I'm going to get. Let's dispatch with the his. The the impeachment hearing first of all just history junkie. James I know you are Julia. I'm an assume if you're in this business you are to Sarah. I I kind of enjoyed the the oral histories of the debate about what to put in the constitution. I mean I thought that was kind of interesting James. Yeah not very often. You see on network television a long discourses on the federal papers and what. James Madison was thinking. When Jonathan Turley misquoted Alexander Hamilton by the way in federal sixty five I I noticed in his in his case against impeachment but the relevancy of these hearings? Today I'm watching them kind of with one eye and wondering wondering what you know what they add you know. The the fact witnesses were pretty explosive. They kind of showed that this was pretty much. Factually at least did not politically an open. And shut case but you know for the we've already seen that. Republicans are not moving on this at all but not a single one is going to peel off and especially given the kind of anti expert anti deep state Andrew Bureaucrat. Yeah Ethos in the Trump Republican party which is what it is now. I'm wondering who do these hearings are for it does feel. It's for the Acela corridor absolutely James. But here's what I took away. I took away two things number one. They do WANNA put bribery as one of the army. What we're learning as we're learning what they are trying to legally play right so we've taken away two things here that they WANNA do bribery? The second is the obstruction action park to the mall. Report is going to be a basis for one of the articles of impeachment. That's a significant development. It is and you're right. This is all about laying the legal predicates get for what's going to come next. They know where they're going with this. That's why they chose the witnesses they did. It's also funny to compare the Republican witnesses who testified during the Bill Clinton impeachment. It gave literally the opposite testimony. God worshipped Jonathan Turley. Who was basically a cable? TV News Royer in the ninety S. Jane Clinton's anything he got to a whole bunch of people that sort of parlayed. Oj and Clinton into some sort of legal celebrity and look Greta. They go on and on. There are a lot of these folks. But it is amazing Turley. But does that stuff goes to what you deciduous does any of this matter. Does hypocrisy matter anymore. More you know. But here's the thing. I don't know that it ever mattered in Washington. I mean I never get more crickets on twitter or when I try to pitch something to an editor. When I'm like well remember that? This politician said something different or this party used to stanton at least say it stood for something different and it's just you know snoring sounds i. It's just assumed to be so baked into how Washington and politics work that. It's it's not interesting anymore to anyone. Although I you know I think it should be you now. Bushy tailed idealist. But is it possible that we are too cynical of the public's take on all this because we sit here and we look at it and we and I've noticed some of the reporting and analysis and we've all committed some of this analysis ourselves already we're looking at the politics and the Republican wall of obstruction and going okay. What is this worth doing? You know you know. This isn't going anywhere but it didn't. We're not in this place. Organically Ganic James Right. The Republican Party spent millions to basically get this status quo over the last two months. Democratic Party chose not the campaign brightness and yet the numbers numbers are break. Even you can look at that and say Oh my God. What if the Democrats actually campaigned on this? You Know Nancy. Pelosi didn't think the numbers we're going to move. That's why she was reluctant has if she should. I wonder if they've made a mistake. Not to put a little bit of money behind that. Please don't John over over you know. Don't let me man's point a no. No no it's fine I just You know to continue with the bushy tailed. Bushy tailed idealism streak streak. I think you know the politics aside. They have to do this. And I and I'm actually heartened to see that. They're referring to the second part of the Muller Report and the ten key instances says ups of obstruction of justice that muller outlined therein Because at some point it's not just about the politics I mean we saw a piece about how so I think in the post actually about how yesterday about how moderate moderate Democrats it might give them some room to vote no on some articles of impeachment and show that they're kind of an independent of Pelosi etc.. But I think this stuff has to at least be brought up for a vote. Because it's being I think has to be done for the future for institutions for our Constitution. If you just let this stand you know if you let what what was outlined in the Muller reports stand and he so clearly pundit to Congress and if they don't pick up the ball and run and at least show that they take obstruction of justice by President. Seriously I think again again. I am mostly foreign policy person and I look at this from an international perspective I was just in central Europe and The people were telling me you know we like journalists and activists there who still feel like a tinderbox. It just feels like yet this podcast. We do sides it. Just you know national. Yeah well I always do especially as a Jew but ethno-nationalism And kind of authoritarian regimes Were popular there before they were here in the last decade but You know talking to journalists and activists there I was hearing what a lot of journalists and activists in Russia were telling me which was we used to look up to you guys and we used to see you as an an example to emulate and strive for in terms of independent institutions in In terms of respect for the law in terms of how you treat Corruption and now are we see that you're just like every other country and we don't know who to look up to anymore and I think that's really important and I think this is kind of something to keep in mind you know while we count the votes oats and who's whipping who you know like we. I think we should keep the bigger picture in mind. I in the bigger picture too. I think we have to keep in mind the atmospherics yes. It's true the polls haven't moved right. I think you know some of that is is part of the kind of muddying the waters has worked for trump. and that's sweet time talking about Ukraine intervention than Russia within what Russia has been doing to the entire our world. Yeah it's it's astonishing how we all found ourselves because we couldn't believe how crazy. Oh my and so it. Legitimately became famous story but we end. They accomplished what they wanted to. And they're still doing it. They've you know it's such it is it is it is and in fact there was is a vote into the night before these hearings got very little attention because it was a resolution but seventy two just fired me up so much. I can't I have an interesting. I guess coming up this weekend who is definitely Russia. Hawk cannot wait ask them. I'm excited. I'm excited to see it. You know obviously incredible interviewed last weekend with with the senator from Louisiana and and it was amazing seventy-one Republicans voted against a resolution saying that Russia shouldn't be allowed to rejoin the G.. Seven all kind of trump loyalists the resolution said until they give back Crimea. Okay that's the only one house. Republicans voted to say ass freshman. Wants to get back into the regardless of whether they return turn a stolen piece of country and this is the same party that six years ago seven years ago whatever. The number Mitt Romney the every single one of them to to a person cheered on Mitt Romney when he said Russia's our biggest strategic threat. Some of that's tribalism. Of course tribalism isn't new but it is a moment and I think oh you know. This is a big deal for putting it in their only newsletter morning minutes I'll wait to use the nugget. They trump also said this At a g seven meeting where he said you know well forget about Crimea. They all want their all russian-speakers they want to be part of Russia. which also we just kind of glossed over this was last summer summer? Kind of people were glossed over this. Like whatever and everybody everybody in Bermuda speaks English. Although there's a lot of Russia's speakers in Manhattan or not Manhattan and Brooklyn russian-speakers in Fort Lauderdale Miami okay. I do want to say that like we saw this happening. Pretty early the polls right after Trump's election right after the DNA report came out in January. Two thousand seventeen was kind of like Obama's last act as he walked out the door to Release this intelligence report that was that showed unprecedented unanimity among Intelligence agencies that Russia had interfered in the elections ends that had done so to hurt Hillary Clinton and to help Donald Trump win and to weaken democratic institutions here pulls immediately showed Republicans. Saying well we would be against Russian interference if it helped Democrats but when it helps Republicans. We're not I mean but that was like early twenty seventeen and So forgotten or lost or not because I think going back to my earlier point I think we in the Acela corridor especially in the age Egypt. Twitter we love zoo. We we've gotten so myopic staring at our screens and Thinking about you know the tiny blow by blow. It's not even horse race anymore or you know we're looking at and we really have to keep the big picture in mind because honestly history is watching and you know you mentioned. History Gig was a history major and I'm always thinking about. How will this be written about thirty years from now? One Hundred Years from now. And that's what we have to keep in mind the only way. Honestly it's how I think about every Sunday these days and I'm not sitting here saying that you didn't think about what would this look like a month or a year or something like that. I always think about what transcript GonNa look like in twenty five years..

"Good afternoon from Washington. I'm Chuck Todd and this is the Chuck Todd Cast. The Democratic Twenty twenty field lost a few players this week notably Comma Harris and Steve Bullock. But did you know the former Congressman Joe. SESTAK was running. Well Anyway. He's not now now. The field is currently dominated by four frontrunners Biden Warren Sanders and budget with booed surging into first place in Iowa according to at least one poll and possibly even a ham. Then there's of course the Michael Bloomberg experiment here era of skipping the first four states house that shaking things up this week. Democrats in Congress. Meanwhile charge forward on impeachments beating toward the possible vote of articles of impeachment before Christmas so far the pennant impeachment probe in. The House has done little to change public opinion on this particular Republican support for the president which went it up in the beginning but has since tapered off so are Democrats playing a long or short game here and is there really any upside to either decision at this point politically Likley but then again maybe Republicans are bonus joining me now to discuss magazine correspondent Julia. Yaffe who's also currently writing a book on Russian women and and Washington Post national political correspondent. Hohmann who will recognize from your inbox with the daily to welcome to you both so I'm going to get. Let's dispatch with the his. The the impeachment hearing first of all just history junkie. James I know you are Julia. I'm an assume if you're in this business you are to Sarah. I I kind of enjoyed the the oral histories of the debate about what to put in the constitution. I mean I thought that was kind of interesting James. Yeah not very often. You see on network television a long discourses on the federal papers and what. James Madison was thinking. When Jonathan Turley misquoted Alexander Hamilton by the way in federal sixty five I I noticed in his in his case against impeachment but the relevancy of these hearings? Today I'm watching them kind of with one eye and wondering wondering what you know what they add you know. The the fact witnesses were pretty explosive. They kind of showed that this was pretty much. Factually at least did not politically an open. And shut case but you know for the we've already seen that. Republicans are not moving on this at all but not a single one is going to peel off and especially given the kind of anti expert anti deep state Andrew Bureaucrat. Yeah Ethos in the Trump Republican party which is what it is now. I'm wondering who do these hearings are for it does feel. It's for the Acela corridor absolutely James. But here's what I took away. I took away two things number one. They do WANNA put bribery as one of the army. What we're learning as we're learning what they are trying to legally play right so we've taken away two things here that they WANNA do bribery? The second is the obstruction action park to the mall. Report is going to be a basis for one of the articles of impeachment. That's a significant development. It is and you're right. This is all about laying the legal predicates get for what's going to come next. They know where they're going with this. That's why they chose the witnesses they did. It's also funny to compare the Republican witnesses who testified during the Bill Clinton impeachment. It gave literally the opposite testimony. God worshipped Jonathan Turley. Who was basically a cable? TV News Royer in the ninety S. Jane Clinton's anything he got to a whole bunch of people that sort of parlayed. Oj and Clinton into some sort of legal celebrity and look Greta. They go on and on. There are a lot of these folks. But it is amazing Turley. But does that stuff goes to what you deciduous does any of this matter. Does hypocrisy matter anymore. More you know. But here's the thing. I don't know that it ever mattered in Washington. I mean I never get more crickets on twitter or when I try to pitch something to an editor. When I'm like well remember that? This politician said something different or this party used to stanton at least say it stood for something different and it's just you know snoring sounds i. It's just assumed to be so baked into how Washington and politics work that. It's it's not interesting anymore to anyone. Although I you know I think it should be you now. Bushy tailed idealist. But is it possible that we are too cynical of the public's take on all this because we sit here and we look at it and we and I've noticed some of the reporting and analysis and we've all committed some of this analysis ourselves already we're looking at the politics and the Republican wall of obstruction and going okay. What is this worth doing? You know you know. This isn't going anywhere but it didn't. We're not in this place. Organically Ganic Lee James Right. The Republican Party spent millions to basically get this status quo over the last two months. Democratic Party chose not the campaign brightness and yet the numbers numbers are break. Even you can look at that and say Oh my God. What if the Democrats actually campaigned on this? You Know Nancy. Pelosi didn't think the numbers we're going to move. That's why she was reluctant has if she should. I wonder if they've made a mistake. Not to put a little bit of money behind that. Please don't John over over you know. Don't let me man's point a no. No no it's fine I just You know to continue with the bushy tailed. Bushy tailed idealism streak streak. I think you know the politics aside. They have to do this. And I and I'm actually heartened to see that. They're referring to the second part of the Muller Report and the ten key instances says ups of obstruction of justice that muller outlined therein Because at some point it's not just about the politics I mean we saw a piece about how so I think in the post actually about how yesterday about how moderate moderate Democrats it might give them some room to vote no on some articles of impeachment and show that they're kind of an independent of Pelosi etc.. But I think this stuff has to at least be brought up for a vote. Because it's being I think has to be done for the future for institutions for our Constitution. If you just let this stand you know if you let what what was outlined in the Muller reports stand and he so clearly pundit to Congress and if they don't pick up the ball and run and at least show that they take obstruction of justice by President. Seriously I think again again. I am mostly foreign policy person and I look at this from an international perspective I was just in central Europe and The people were telling me you know we like journalists and activists there who still feel like a tinderbox. It just feels like yet this podcast. We do sides it. Just you know national. Yeah well I always do especially as a Jew but ethno-nationalism And kind of authoritarian regimes Were popular there before they were here in the last decade but You know talking to journalists and activists there I was hearing what a lot of journalists and activists in Russia were telling me which was we used to look up to you guys and we used to see you as an an example to emulate and strive for in terms of independent institutions in In terms of respect for the law in terms of how you treat Corruption and now are we see that you're just like every other country and we don't know who to look up to anymore and I think that's really important and I think this is kind of something to keep in mind you know while we count the votes oats and who's whipping who you know like we. I think we should keep the bigger picture in mind. I in the bigger picture too. I think we have to keep in mind the atmospherics yes. It's true the polls haven't moved right. I think you know some of that is is part of the kind of muddying the waters has worked for trump. and that's sweet time talking about Ukraine intervention than Russia within what Russia has been doing to the entire our world. Yeah it's it's astonishing how we all found ourselves because we couldn't believe how crazy. Oh my and so it legitimately became Hema story but we end. They accomplished what they wanted to. And they're still doing it. They've you know it's such it is it is it is and in fact there was is a vote into the night before these hearings got very little attention because it was a resolution but seventy two just fired me up so much.

"We are back with David Brody and his latest installment as part of his Templars in America series is treasure Templar ari and earlier David you mentioned the Templar treasure perhaps being used to fund the American war of independence the revolutionary war one how does that information come down to is how do we know that might occur another one of those sources that we're not sure about it it's another journal that was found Sinclair family journals I was still better than to determine whether they're are authentic or not but in was in those journals they talk about in the seventeen seventies a group of Freemasons from New England Pennsylvania area going up to Nova Scotia to the islands off the coast of Nova Scotia and retrieving the treasures that the Templars had left there in the thirteen hundreds and bring that back in and and selling that treasure to fund the revolution that was part of the plan did the Templars believe that if they came to America maybe they you know they could help fund this grand experiment and and and begin and start a new Jerusalem well yeah that so so again I don't think it was specifically it as an experiment as if this is a hundreds of years earlier if I don't if they knew exactly what the experiment was look like they use the term new Jerusalem and that's exactly what they were thinking of remember they were we had with the church probably because of of dogma and doctrine disagreements and they they sent two hundred years in the Middle East and and had had really become more liberalized I think more open minded about other peoples in other cultures remember at this time Europe was still coming out of the dark ages and it was a very backwards on educated in society and the church of course was was very much against science and medicine and they they believe that you've toured people by face so the temple ours works was a whole different line of thinking wallet in the Middle East much more open minded much when you came in and so I think when they came back to Europe after the crusades they were hoping to push society in the direction of more individual rights more of science more are more liberty and and the truck wasn't having that so I I think that day in visions I won the reason why they came to America they came across realistic was to search out a safe haven for with a vision to be a new Jerusalem an area where their version of what Christianity should like look like should could thrive specifically version that reflects individual rights individual liberties much as the founding fathers promoted during our revolution west of the Rockies John is in mesa Arizona John good morning welcome to coast good morning Richard although you have no idea how much of an honor it is to be on your show and I think what's your guess is probing into is one of the most important things that anyone could program to all my only I I'd be all I don't think it's treasure monetarily wise I don't think it's valuable stuff I think what it was was a your guests did mention that Jesus was a student one time at a mystery school and I I guess I disagree I think he was the master in there from the time he was twelve and tell whether you believe he was thirty or I think Bobby forty two that's a long time and that's the most important years of people's lives think about it you know him in his uncle who was a rich trader a traveller John of anonymity and the guy that got his body when he was when he came down from the cross they travel all over the place and he was a master at all the mystery schools and I think let them the met the real message that the temple is we're trying to bring across was the kingdom of god is within us and then we define it is through these mystery schools what a coincidence sixty they destroy them all and then I think maybe the temples blackmail England or the church with regular maybe like the ark of the covenant I think that's possible but I don't think that was a real treasure but if you're going to find a treasure I wouldn't ask your gas in this is my question have you considered numbers you know since their sacred numbers I don't think it started with Jesus I think it went way back before the Egyptians thirty three is a three is a magic number it's a secret number I think the trigger would be buried on the thirty third degree interesting theory all right David you want to weigh in on that right so what we are talking about either sacred geometry or or there's something called into my tree in in if this is the the the use of of number is S. as in as sacred and and symbolism so there's all sorts of different possibilities and look what you talked about the knights Templar our very much proponents of a secret codes and symbolism the second number is the for example eight was a sacred number thirty three mention freemasonry I'm not sure if the thirty third degree latitude would have been the spot they they they have their treasures that that's a possibility but the way you're thinking which is that there would be some kind of symbolism line their hiding spot I think it's accurate going back to something you said earlier in in in your in your commentary about the fact you don't think it was treasure monetary treasure I actually agree with that because I think when you when you think about how much traffic could be loaded on a couple of ships and you figure out the the the the dollar value of that even if you were to use these generous as you could with it it's just not that much money it's really you know it it's it's a few million dollars are tens of millions of dollars it's not really enough to change things I had to change the course of history so that's why I think it has to be something that was more valuable than treasure something that doesn't something invaluable such as religious secrets or religious artifacts John thank you for that let's go to the wildcard line and Carlos is in Oahu Hawaii Oahu Carlos Hey there hello there's a there's a lot at the far end of side of the temple it was a temple and now it's a mosque and you can only land by the guardians of temple and Jill or the banks of the temple and underneath there are tunnels in those tunnels is where they store the ark of the covenant and the ark of the covenant shell is it's not corny at all Golden Chappie acted the tablets inside the ark almost precious it's quite possible that all of the artifacts it should be mentioned tonight at the same site but the fact that there are people call it treasure hoard hunted as treasure is the very reason why it has to be guarded and protected because it's like you just said before this is religious I mean these are all the order affects their dot treasure to be recorded and and and and and to be I have a monetary value placed the bottom end at some point I feel that it will be revealed but it has to be at a time when I'm not finding is more conducive to world peace togetherness and what we are right now this is not the time for those are actually but to the surface in the field for the to the people of the world may call Carlos that said let's get David respond quickly yes so the the just to give some history on on on the treasures that were at one point hidden in Jerusalem may still be there today when the Romans sacks through some and burn destroy the the the second temple in I believe it was sixty eighty or seventy eighty seventy three eighty in that range many of the treasures were were taken out at that time knowing that the Romans at some point we're gonna have to trade along the walls and destroy the temple and so many the treasures were taken out and it's possible that they were brought back in and are there today but it's also possible that they away to someplace else and so that's really the questions via where did they end up first time caller and need is in Sheboygan Wisconsin Anita welcome to coast to coast AM hi calling about counts against altar piece of the fourteen hundreds and the French used clothing tapestry of fourteen eighty five to fifteen oh five oh four depictions of people's interest in the death of Christ and again people look intently interested at the plane lands but in the latter unicorn tapestry of the unicorn representing the slaying of Christ but into the market place on the back of a hunting horse and therefore representing itself represents the church is mostly ignored by the people standing around in the marketplace they are the hunters and the women just plain turn their back either looks like this is significant in that it detects the emergence of the market nine and fourteen and the unicorn after all was only in this so called the other words Christ was only unethical being and gender religious zeal anymore place a death of the church hello floor of the tapestry which is the language of flowers actually some instructions the holy grail and it's not weird enough treasure of the Templars yeah all right I need a lot there to unpack David the French unicorn tapestry I'm I'm not familiar with that tapestry so I really have trouble comments and Richard are you familiar with that I'm not no I have not heard of it before yeah it's hard to comment on that I'm sorry but I am I would add do in passing you know the idea that you know Jesus being a mythical you know medical person yeah I don't know too many historians who actually doubt that he was an historical figure I think there's more even information or text outside of the Bible demonstrating that Jesus existed then there is there is a flight out just see this right about Jesus as a sort of a figure yeah I I would do that let's see if we can work Orlando in here from mission Texas Orlando on the wildcard line good morning welcome to coast all twenty second delay I need you to turn the radio off their Orlando if you could and okay you're on my friend go ahead question loser genes or cleaning at times is there anything who is who's a can I get you to turn the radio off Orlando who is who's queen our Orlando the temperatures I can you got to turn that radio off okay well Tom Foley the third turn it down turn it right off okay would you mean by their king or queen they they they existed in different locations in Europe right so they would have been a number of different kings or queens and I'm in my right David right so they you know they they have pretty much every country in Europe had temple are commander reserve seven stories and so they they were the eleven every every monarch in Europe.

"david brody" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM

"David Brody stays with us the the author of treasure Templar a Templars **** and the holy grail so we were talking about this a painting they get altar piece which was really revolutionary this piece of work by the van Eyck brothers back in the the fourteen twenties and it's the most stolen painting in history so it's recovered was it you recovered after the war by the allies right so the **** stole the the the painting after they rolled into Belgium and then at the end the allies recovered at the very end of the war but rewind find a little bit back to nineteen thirty four this one particular panel those one panel that for some reason people believe was the maps of the holy grail called the justice judges panel that panel still even before the war in nineteen thirty four it was obsessed with it on one of the possibilities is that Belgium Belgian nationalists building patriots stole it it was going to get his hands on and eventually and they took it as a preemptive move but that the mystery about this penalty is that one panel has never been recovered even though the other parts of the of the of the painting other fifteen panels had been recovered that one panel that map to the holy grail has never been recovered so Hitler believed that the just judges panel of the grand altar piece would lead him ultimately to on covering the Templar treasure which might lead into the holy grail and all of these other Christian artifacts exactly and what did Hitler imagined that he could do with these artifacts and he thought he was in a cultist he hated Christianity why did he want the holy grail so badly he did hate Christianity but he also recognize the power of these artifacts of possible power the artifacts are two things you wanted to do three things actually one he wanted to weaponize them could he possibly turn for example the spear of destiny into some kind of weapons using them the magic that was associated with it secondly could he monetize the treasure and use of the fund is war efforts and then thirdly if Jesus was was immortalized by the common forms of that whenever a wise could Hitler himself become immortal so he really had three different motivations that as far as I could recovery both the arma Christi the the the the the items out of the crucifixion of the cross fear death in a cloud of the ones and also the Templar treasure itself the spear of destiny or the spear of Longinus I mean that that the artifact up pops up now and again throughout history it has it has been possessed by emperors one of the legends is that whoever wrote into battle caring this spear of launching these could not be defeated correct exactly and that's one of the reasons why he wanted to recover it and and this goes back even before the war started he'd sent out expeditions it into the Himalayan is up to the Arctic Circle down to Africa looking for looking for all these artifacts and again as you said he was in a cult and so he was obsessed with this as you also said he did not like Christianity he believe that Christianity was too weak to religion for for the right that is this turn the other cheek this meek will inherit the earth he didn't leave any of that stuff but he did recognize the possible power of these artifacts and Himmler also wanted to get his hands on the just judges panel but he thought that the the the map that was sort of encrypted encoded into this panel let the something else right he also won the cultists he was obsessed with the ancient civilization of Atlantis and their technology so like Hitler he wanted to weaponize as he fought them the judge judges panel was a secret map leading to some kind of portal that would lead to the underground Atlantis technology that was buried someplace and again he wanted to use this technology to win the war so both of them were sort of doing a tug of war over this over this potential map for different reasons but the same goal the goal again world dominance no why would they come to such completely polar opposite conclusions about what this this panel of the get older piece was leading to wipe on the one hand we have the holy grail and on the other hand the treasures of Atlantis I mean what was it about the just judges panel that that could lead to such opposite conclusions right that's one of the mysteries of the image it is hard to get inside the head of of these these not to leave it there a little bit off the wall obviously so it's hard to it's hard to be rational I think it rational answers to what they believe this the short answer is that this whole nights temple are the mystery of the temple ours and the possibility that the Templars had the holy grail I mean that was something that had been carried forward ever since they were they were outlawed in in thirteen oh seven and that's you know we still see that today but this idea that there's this this this treasure out there this unknown treasure this magical cachet of religious artifacts of some kind and it's very seductive and when you when you get when you couple that with the power that the **** had enough power they're trying to acquire you just end up with these crazy ideas at all for you only get that we can win the war we would have the world dominance that that should be our and the you allude to in the book and I don't know if this is a piece of fiction or whether this also is rooted in history but Hitler got wind that the just judges panel might still be in Belgium and he dispatched one of his evil minions there to recover it and what happened to him when he failed to recover it he knew that Hitler was was was was not gonna be the of sympathetic to his failure and so we committed suicide that actually happened only that that was a lot of a better fate than Hitler would give him but he that would that that just shows how obsessive there was with finding these items fighting this this map that he believed it was the just just as a panel that actually did happen let it happen yeah in your book in this piece of fiction the the just judges panel is actually recovered and so the the main protagonists in the story Cameron in Amanda they're sort of hired I guess to try and decipher the code in this panel that leads to the template treasure and that leads them you know hither and yon all over the world and finally North America right right so when I try to do with the with this these novels is take actual site an actual artifacts in in weave them into a story one of the the things I use one of the ingredients I use in this story is a journal from the state eleven seventy nine it was found in in war torn Italy after World War two and we call this document the Cremona document this journal the Cremona document we're not quite sure if it's authentic or not many people believe many researchers believe it is but what it is is it's it's a it's a journal written by temple our soldier from the the eleven seventy nine eleven eighty talking about a journey across the north Atlantic and ending up in what we now know was the Catskill Mountains of New York and what that journey and filled was bringing treasures of the town class had recovered in Jerusalem over to New York over to the New World to this to hide them to keep them away from the church and other enemies and then bringing some things back to Europe that has been said that had been brought over earlier so in my story one of the places that the protagonist go looking for this temple I treasure is the capital region region of New York no need to circle back to the van Eyck brothers who painted the altarpiece and this was in the fourteen twenty so this is over a hundred years after the knights Templar organization had been abandoned hunted down and and perhaps expelled from Europe so with the van Eyck's secretly harboring a knights Templar what what was their connection right so so just as you know when when when the U. S. government passed anti racketeering laws in the nineteen sixties which effectively outlawed the mafia Monty didn't go away they went underground so similarly when the church and the kings of the monarchies of Europe outlawed the knights Templar in thirteen oh seven going forward the Templars didn't disappear they just went underground a reconstituted themselves many of them ended up going to Stalin which is one of the few countries at the time which did not outlaw them and so yeah we have to think of it in in in in that context of the Templars didn't disappear they went underground and as I said reconstitute themselves flash forward to the early fourteen hundred a hundred years later and they're still many groups that were doing the same things have lots to do and when I say doing them up I'm tryna studying the old mystery schools mysticism and and the things that that that that that night's Templars passed on to freemasonry today one of the leading members of that circle was a gentleman by the name of the the Duke of Burgundy Philip the good he was called to do but actually he was the king of the lands we now know was Belgium the Netherlands in northern France he was an incredibly powerful monarch during that time period but he was obsessed himself with the holy grail legend with the stories of the temple ares with mysticism with alchemy and it turns out he was the patron of yon van Eyck and was he the commission this painting in Belgium and we think I think he's sort of the Lynch pin he is that hi in back to the temple our tradition add going backwards to before they're outlawed and then going forward into the it's it's through the fifteenth century and even going for beyond that but it's people like him he created his own its own order call the order of the Golden Fleece which again another secret or that studied the holy grail in alchemy and all this these these mystery schools we see them we see them recurring frequently throughout history but it's it's in these kinds of groups that were obsessed with the holy grail and is there any evidence that Hitler Himmler the **** suspected that the Templar treasure including the arma Christi these artifacts associated with Christ's crucifixion they wound up in North America there's no evidence that Hitler Himmler believes that they looked all around from one of the places they did not look was North America now having said that you know it's not like it's not like they had access to North America at that time so we don't really know you know what they knew what they suspected one of the fascinating things I learned even after writing the book was that Himmler had these crystal skulls White Christmas gonna black crystal skull that he also believes were had magical powers in and might lead into the holy grail and are similar kinds of skills that are part of the native American legend so although Hitler we don't have evidence was looking towards North America and may have been that Himmler was the salary evidence he was doing some work in in in central and South America also so again it is we we we have we have hints of these things but not hard evidence and in the book in in the.

"David Brody welcome back to coast to coast AM how are you I'm doing great thank you for having me tonight so let's start off with a rather important definition of the knights Templar who were there they were basically the army of the medieval church from the early parts of the eleven hundreds to the early parts of the thirteen hundreds and they became probably the most powerful force in all of Europe during that time period they acquired amazing amounts of welfare as I said the army of the church they fought in the crusades they were gifted a lot of land by nobility something that they discovered in Jerusalem when they were over the Middle East made an incredibly powerful we're not quite sure what that was some kind of treasure or secret and then just as quickly they were outlawed by the church and that's a whole nother story will get to that I'm sure as we go along right so the the theory is that perhaps allegedly they discovered vast fortunes gold and other treasures beneath the remnants of Solomon's temple is at the idea wait a critical yes that city they discovered something that would nine nights went over there and then almost instantly they came back to Europe and became incredibly powerful so I mean that's one of the questions that no one really knows the answer to what did they find when they are activating under king Solomon's temple was it gold and silver and treasure possibly was the ancient secrets of Christianity that they at the church didn't want to be revealed and so that the Templar knights use that to leverage themselves into a position of power did they find religious artifacts such as the holy grail of the ark of the covenant did they find each knowledge and then lost during the dark ages and it could be any one of those things but whatever it was something made an incredibly powerful and so that's question one the question too is what happened two hundred years later they were butting heads with the church over over something that that they learned or something that they did and the church cut them down what was that second what would cause that that's mystery number two and then of course Mr number three is this treasure that they had what happened to it and those are the three questions that I delve into in this series of books right just as a quick aside didn't the Templars because of their because of their gold holdings did they really are they credited with starting the banking system as we know it yes basically they they can put a system whereby travelers in medieval times of course traveling was very very dangerous and very difficult travelers could basically by what we now call travelers checks they could deposit their money say in Paris Alex temple are headquarters and and we've given at a door ever they happen to be traveling won't wherever they were going in turn that in and catch it in and that allow them to travel without having to carry gold cast with that and so that that was sort of the beginning of the banking system and from that the Templars became lenders financiers really a multinational corporation as I said earlier they became incredibly wealthy incredibly powerful and this is by my count I bill I believe you're nines in this series on Templars in America do I have that right you are correct yes and as we speak you're you're hammering away on number ten I am I mean that's a long series on one topic what is it about this that has you so I don't use the word obsessed but I mean wow it's kind of taken over your literary career you can use the word Seth and it's funny because I had no background whatsoever in the knights Templar when I first started I was writing legal thrillers and we have a local legend in the town that I lived in for over to well over twenty years over two decades Westford Massachusetts the legend of the Westford night spelled with a K. and that legend is that Scottish explore some of the remnants of the outlawed knights Templar came over to to New England in the late thirteen hundred a hundred years before Columbus one of their party died one of the nights died and the cards in effigy into the rock ledge to memorialize his death and so that's the legend we have in my home town western Massachusetts and I saw this and my my one my daughters came from school one day elementary school with with this story so that's a fun story that might be a fun thing to weave into one of my legal thrillers and I started doing the research on and I went down that rabbit hole maybe fifteen years ago and I'm still carrying around the dusty corners is temple artistry a decade and a half later nine books later in desperate need of a shower and a change of clothes this turns out that there are there are so many aspects to this mystery there's so many things about the Templar order because they were a secret order things we don't know about me think about having you know the United States today and for the past say a hundred years has been the most powerful country on earth let's say that the United States everything about it was secret and historians six hundred years from now trying to figure that out but it was all secret imagine imagine how many mysteries there would be if that's what it was like with the Templars they were incredibly powerful but they were secret and we don't really know what happened what they believe well they did what got them to become powerful or what got them to become a loss so there's just so much to to to learn about and it's it's that you would use the word obsessed Richard I think that's fair I I am in the stuff keeps me up at night well let's suppose that they did come to America before Columbus and I think most of his now have slowly come around to the idea that Columbus wasn't first he was probably last so if the Templars the knights Templars I came to North America in the thirteen hundreds more than a hundred years before Columbus so what what's the implication here right there really isn't if earth shattering a concept other than we just have this line in the sand you know fourteen hundred ninety two Columbus sailed the ocean blue it's not that big a deal we know that the Norse came across at least as far as America and Canada hundred years before that so what would be the big deal with the Templars came it really wouldn't change that much the thing that does change history is why did they come you know get their outlined in thirteen oh seven it stands to reason that they they saw the writing on the wall one of the reasons they would've com would have been to create for themselves a safe haven a place to secrete their treasures and their valuables and so if they did come which I think they did the question then is is their treasure still here or if not what happened to it it's not whether they came in on it's why did they come with a coming for religious reasons because they believe the version of Christianity which differ from the orthodoxy of the church and if so what was that difference and what does that mean about the church itself so those are the questions that I think of the really interesting thing whether they came or not I mean who cares I quite clearly I think they did I think it would be more surprising if nobody came between the time of Leif Eriksson in the early eleventh century and Columbus like why wouldn't people come back and forth it's part of the human condition to as they say in Star Trek to seek out new life and new civilizations matches it's what humans do I got to be more surprising if five hundred years passed without somebody else crossing the Atlantic but as I said the important question the interesting question is why were they here and what were they doing and if if they did find these amazingly important Christian artifacts the holy grail the crown of thorns the one true cross the spear of destiny who knows what else the ark of the covenant if they brought those with them that means they're here somewhere in North America are they in oak island are they buried somewhere in the Ozarks or Washington DC and and they're they're they're out there waiting to be discovered right so that's the sixty four thousand or fifty four million dollar question where are they you know where were they when they brought over here and then written later retrieved and brought back to Europe and perhaps there was one chapel in in in Stalin where they brought over here and then just lost where they put where they treasures and brought over here in liquidated to pay for the American revolution I mean there's all sorts of did a possibilities and there's evidence of support all three of those things I just mentioned by the way and it's also possible that that we just haven't found it yet it is still being there that they were that they were hidden and and they're still being hit in and kept hidden by certain groups here and and to be released at some future time so that's the fourth possibility and yet but this is fertile ground for fiction and and I think beyond just the fictional interests I think people who are interested in history have a real fascination with this as well exemplary Templars **** and the holy grail again it's a piece of fiction but it is is deeply rooted in historical fact in it centers around a medieval painting cold the dance culture piece tell me about with this painting looks like so again it's it's it's a huge painting is about the size of a barn door and comprised of sixteen separate painting separate panels it was painted by the van Eyck brothers Hubert neon van like in the late fourteen twenties early fourteen thirty is a fascinating it was it was quite a spectacle when it was first painted the van Eyck's came up with a with a really cutting edge technology to create right vibrant colors I mean there there was there was colored paint of course back then but they added linseed oil to the pigments to really create a vibrant product picture for example going from black and white television to high definition color that's basically what these guys did not just with the caller but they painted with such detail every single hair on the horse's back you can identify they really change the way painting was done and so what if anything came out now than what was it was it important painting for religious purposes with will get to but just the the quality itself was quite a quite a remarkable thing during that time period NPR recently called most important painting in history and in addition to being important it's also the most stolen anything after it's been someone six or seven times but again starts back in the early parts of the fourteen hundreds in dance a city in Belgium and the the the depiction on one panel in particular is is really of primary importance to the story correct right and I and I believe these these images are up on on because because let's say if it was just one take a look but the central image of something called the attic adoration of the mystic lamb and what that is essentially is a picture of of a land which symbolizes jesus' being pierced with a lance everyone knows that story and the blood flowing from the land into a chalice and everybody's watching all the important figures in both the old and the New Testament the angels of profits everyone's watching this happen in verse involved of course of the holy grail also watching this from a separate panel are a group of knights Templar knights of Christ on horseback who they're watching which is strange because this panel this painting was kept in in a in a Catholic cathedral Saint bobbles get the drawing and the temp wife had been outlawed see you would think that you wouldn't want to have an outlaw group watching your your solemn ceremony but there there that's curious and then watching the Templars watch this scene are another group of of contemporary figures the call the job judges will get back to the just said later they become very point of the story the sensitive story the central panel is a story of of the land leading into a chalice in other words from the blood into the holy grail as you mentioned you when the most stolen paintings in in history the the grand altar piece and this is a somewhat reminiscent of that George Clooney I think Bill Murray was also when I called the monuments men wear this this group of soldiers their mission was to recover stolen art art pieces priceless art pieces that were stolen by the **** during the second World War also Matt Damon actually give a shout out to my boss and I met Damon also was in that movie yeah that's a two thousand fourteen feature film and and the if the if your listeners are familiar with the movie that first scene is is a scene where the **** come in and steal of a painting out of a church and it is against altarpiece painting and that's one of the most important things that they stole an immensely recovered all except that centerpiece not the sense.

Did anyone celebrate national hamburger day yesterday? I did not. I encourage him when he did though you did froggy to explain what you, would you did. I did I went to this place called 'em shack. They're all place here in Florida. And so I had burger input all kinds of toppings. It was so big that I cut it. I'm a person who cuts my burger in half. By the way, I don't know if that's wrong. So big how delicious was it? I couldn't even get my mouth on. It was I couldn't open mouth wide enough to cram. The burger in their good. Sounds like a great Dayton. It does. Gandhi. Disagree with you. You thank you for celebrating burger day. No, no, no sexy foods on the day of the day list today, so don't worry about it. Hey, so let's get into the, the way back Wednesday phone tap after that. I wanna talk about this story that you gave us earlier Gandhi. They'll give the story just quickly, if you would it says that unmarried women are healthier and happier than everyone else in the world. Okay. Now, why is this according to this source because they can focus on their goals. They take more risks at work. They don't have feelings of guilt. It's being weighed down by family members and what they need to do for society. They're just living their lives the way that they wanna live them, of course. Keeping my Gandhi is a single female. Yes, I am. I enjoy this research. By the way, keep in mind research, doesn't say this is the way it is you just have to know it's, you know, it doesn't it doesn't apply to every single person like Daniel, for instance. Right. You seem to be very, very happy with two children. I wouldn't give it up for the world, exactly. But, you know, let's face it, you're staff armaments where, you know you get upset but the pros outweigh the cons in my in my book. At least an I would not give it up for the world's. And I'm on the other side Gandhi there in times where you you'd be like you know what? I wish I had someone within the right now to share this moment with I wish I was no single. Do you ever have those moments? No. Okay. Currently I'm at a very, very good place. Maybe someday down the road, this is awful. But now it's weird for me. Like when the house is empty like in Sheldon's away somewhere where the kids are away somewhere. I sit there and I go gosh, I missed that I missed the noise, I miss, I miss him in the bed, I miss, you know, telling him this home into, you know, it's weird, but I've been doing it for so long that, you know, I'm exactly opposite. Like when I have friends over all the time, and I come home. I'm like, oh, you're here. Get out. Myself. Keep in mind, this is one research project. We're not pointing fingers and saying anyone is better or worse than anyone else. Let's get that out of the way. Right. I don't want to hear any bitch, and Immonen. Let's just look at the research and was comment on right? So after the phone, I want to hear from you. Are you single? Do you find yourself happier? Are you married with kids and would never give it up for the world because, you know, you'd get sued and there's a divorce or you can fill both ways you could be like you could say, hey, I enjoy my alone time. But then sometimes I miss sharing moments with the important people in my life. Alright. Text at fifty five one hundred or you can call us at eight hundred two four two zero one hundred..

Kenny Chesney at MetLife Stadium: Severe weather postpones show

"Kenny Chesney tour that show any smothered was postponed at five, forty five because of severe weather the it was so crazy that they were asking fans to leave their seats to take shelter. And if you were still tailgating, they asked you to take shelter inside your car's. Thankfully, it all was setting done before the show got way. I think an hour and a half late show started. But once the show started, everyone had a great time. Boys, one got cancelled. I know there was a people got injured at talking about that, why? No. But the problem with that is when you have an emergency at backstreet boys concert, all the people in walkers. Trying to get to the exit.
