Coast To Coast AM - March 16, 2016 Secret Origins of America
Author Janet Wolter was the first guest in part two. She spoke about what she referred to as the elusive "Venus Families" who she says have been keeping alive the equality of the female gods or principle with the male ones since the balance was shifted to patriarchal deities at about 2000 BCE. She described them as a force who inspired and directed the founding fathers of the United States, and that some (such as Thomas Jefferson) were members. They were interested in "freedom of thought, consciousness, religion and they wanted to bring the light of knowledge to the people" she stated. She has also found what she believes are many clues to the influence of the group in the architecture and layout of Washington, D.C.
Wolter's co-author Alan Butler joined George for the rest of the program. He originally began researching hidden history because as he said, you "come across things that are difficult to explain." He believes that there was extensive exploration of North America by various groups for centuries prior to Columbus' expedition, including the Knights Templar, who Butler thinks reached the interior of the continent as early as the 1200s and perhaps hid large caches of treasure and other artifacts. He noted that many traditional depictions of Columbus' ships show the red Templar cross on the sails. He thinks that the Knights were "foot soldiers" for the Venus Families. At present, he said, there are "a few thousand" people involved in this ancient order who quietly attempt to steer events and policies toward more freedom for the most people. He concluded by stating that "Britain lost America when it did because of its own stupidity," meaning that they underestimated the resolve of the Americans and the "Venus Families."
