In what could signal the end of a  longstanding American mystery, a Tennessee man believes that he knows where one of the nation’s most famous treasures in buried.

This isn’t some lost pirate booty or squirreled-away Confederate gold, however.  The treasure is question is “Fenn’s Gold” – a cache of gold and cash that was meant to be discovered one day.

Somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, there is a bronze chest filled with gold and precious gems. The search for this hidden treasure has become a hobby for some, an obsession for others, and for one recent searcher — a fatal pursuit.

The man behind the treasure is Forrest Fenn, an 85-year-old millionaire, former Vietnam fighter pilot, self-taught archaeologist, and successful art dealer in Santa Fe, N.M.

“No one knows where that treasure chest is but me,” Fenn says. “If I die tomorrow, the knowledge of that location goes in the coffin with me.”

Fenn hid clues as to the whereabouts of his famous treasure in a book he has written entitled Thrill of The Chase.

A man in Tennessee believes that he’s cracked the code.

A Tennessee man believes that he has solved the mystery of the elusive Fenn treasure and plans to journey out to the American southwest soon to see if his suspicions are correct. According to an illuminating local media profile, Cris Dotson became interested in the story of eccentric author Forrest Fenn and his alleged hidden cache of riches about five years ago. This past November, after suffering a heart attack and being stuck at home recovering, he decided to plunge headlong into the hunt and seriously pursue finding the treasure.

While Dotson is undoubtedly one of many individuals who think that they are on the right track when it comes to locating the riches, his willingness to go on the record about the status of his hunt is commendable, since many other treasure hunters keep their proverbial cards close to their vest. To that end, he is understandably unwilling to share precisely where he thinks Fenn hid the treasure, but did provide insight into the unique process which led him to the belief that he has narrowed down the spot to within around a quarter mile.

Dotson was also encouraged after he received a rare response from Fenn himself who cautioned the intrepid explorer to “wait until summer” to take his expedition.

Trump Wants Senate Trial, Calls For Schiff And Whistleblower To Be Impeachment Witnesses

Published

President Trump called into “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning where he made a call for a Senate impeachment trial and for said he wants House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and the whistleblower — along with others — to be called as witnesses. Here’s more from Fox News: “There’s nothing there,” Trump declared, claiming “there should never be an impeachment” and he “doesn’t know” the majority of the witnesses. But following a meeting with senators a day earlier, the president announced on the show that if the House impeaches, “Frankly, I want a trial.” He stressed that Senate trial would provide the opportunity to call other witnesses — including Hunter Biden, whose dealings in Ukraine were at the heart of what he wanted investigated out of Kiev, and especially Schiff. “There’s only one person I want more than ‘Where’s Hunter?’ and that is Adam Schiff,” Trump said. Trump blasted Schiff’s dramatic reading of the transcribed phone call he had with Ukraine’s president and then challenged his claim to not know the identity of the whistleblower, saying, “I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower.” The president also stated that he wants to hear from the “fake whistleblower. He went on to say that “everybody” knows the individual’s identity already. Watch the latest video at foxnews.com

Kanye West Held Worship Service For Prison Inmates, Atheist Group Argues It Violated Constitution

Published

on

Popular rap artist and born again Christian Kanye West recently held a surprise worship service in a county jail a week ago to share the hope of the gospel with those who are oh so desperate for the hope it provides. However, this gesture of good will did not seem to go over well with atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation. The group sent a letter to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez on Monday stating that a “church service” like the one West held in the jail should never happen again and that it violated the Constitution. Here’s more from TheBlaze: “It is our understanding that Harris County Sheriff officials organized two concerts for inmates and staff on Friday, November 15,” the letter recalls. “Kanye West and his choir performed songs from West’s recent religious album, ‘Jesus Is King,’ and the performances were ‘really more like a church service,’ a sentiment you explicitly and publicly admitted. Photos suggest this is true, too.” The “photos” in reference show one tweet by Sheriff Gonzalez saying, “[Kanye West] and his choir brought some light and #churchservice to people who needed it today at the Harris County Jail,” and another recalling West’s words to inmates that “this is a mission, not a show.” “In short, this was unconstitutional,” the atheist group’s letter said, arguing that the inmates didn’t really have a choice — “nobody believes there is a genuine choice between sitting in a cramped, locked cell, and listening to a two-hour long concert.” “This constitutional violation is particularly egregious because it imposed religion on inmates — literally a captive audience — who have a deep and immediate interest in being seen favorably by [Sheriff Gonzalez] and [his] staff.” “It is no excuse that Kayne West is famous,” the letter reads. Jason Spencer, a spokesman for…
