Media coverage for The Secret Life of Lady Liberty by Robert R. Hieronimus, Ph.D., and Laura E. Cortner. Order from

shirley-maclaineInterview Date: 4th of July 2016
Shirley MacLaine, Independent Expression Radio

“I thought it would good fun and very informative for the Fourth of July to bring on Robert Hieronimus and his writing partner Laura Cortner. He has been a favorite of mine for a very long time. I have been especially interested in reading his doctoral stuff on The Historic Analysis of the Reverse of the American Great Seal and his research on America’s ‘secret destiny.’ But what I want to talk about today on this Fourth of July is The Secret Life of Lady Liberty: Goddess in the New World. (I really enjoyed it very much.) This is going to be an interesting book to examine because it shows how Lady Liberty has ties to Native American spiritual traditions, the Earth Mother, Roman goddesses, Black Madonnas, Mary Magdalene and reveals the sharp contrast between depicting Liberty as a female and the reality of women and other suppressed classes going on even today. Let’s say a prayer for the Statue of Liberty. Do a blessing on the Statue of Liberty and what it means to solve all these problems.” Listen to the rest of interview.
