Friday Night Feature: The Inherited Goggles --by Rev. Troy Heidt

When I was a young boy my father, who was a minister as I am now, pastored a church on a Native American reservation! My father befriended an elderly Native American man who had fought in World War 2 and was quite fond of Dad. This man developed lung cancer and passed away, but left my father with a very strange gift. My father had been given the wooden goggles and belt buckle of a Japanese soldier that this Native American elder had killed in the war. He wanted to leave it to his children, but they were all troubled in their lives so he left these items in the care of my father until one of his children would turn themselves around. (It seems like a morbid inheritance- but it meant something to this man who had fought for his life and our freedoms) My father held on to the belt buckle and goggles for years and then one of this man's sons became a tribal leader on the reservation. Dad remembered the articles he'd been holding for such a time and presented them to our frien

Weekend War Special

George Noory hosted an early broadcast this Saturday evening. "It's not the military obstacle but the global tidal wave of world opinion," that is posing difficulty for the U.S., said John M. Curtis (onlinecolumnist ), the first guest of the evening. Curtis,the director of a West Los Angeles think tank, is a specialist in understanding the mechanisms of spin, propaganda, and "damage control." Don McAlvany (mcalvany.com), the editor of the Intelligence Advisor which analyzes global, economic, and political developments spoke with George about the underpinnings to the current war. He believes a turning point was when Iraq switched currencies for their oil transactions from dollars to euros in 1999. "Osama is no longer a human. He is an idea," said Howard Bloom (howardbloom.net), George's third guest of the evening. Bloom, a paleopsychologist and author, suggested that after Iraq is conquered, the US may have to contend with a united Islamic population set against them.

Special Broadcast

George spoke with bioterrorism expert Steve Quayle (stevequayle.com), on Wednesday night's first hour feed of the show (9pm PST), available in some markets. Streamlink members can now hear that interview (it's listed as the first Show Clip above).

Another Threat Looming?

Investigative reporter Joseph Trento believes there had been a warning going as far as 1995 that Islamic terrorists might use commercial planes to stage attacks, and that this information was basically ignored. Now in his column for the National Security News Service, titled When the Enemy of My Friend is My Customer, Trento is sounding the alarm for another danger. It concerns a souped-up anti-ship missile called the C802, which has been sold on the world market to countries like Iran. "Iran, with its tiny patrol boats and toy navy, now controls naval access to the Persian Gulf," Trento writes of the country that he suspects has greatly expanded the number of C802 missiles it owns. The cruise missiles launched from land, sea or air could place all shipping lanes in the Persian Gulf at risk, and Trento says that the US Navy has not been able to develop an effective defense against them. Further he writes that an arms dealer told him that "last year's attack on the USS Cole was car

A UFO Skeptic

Tonight's guest, James Oberg, an expert on space exploration, has over the years been skeptical of the UFO phenomenon. "We can account for decades of UFO sightings without resorting to supernatural explanations," Oberg said in a debate with famed researcher J. Allen Hynek back in 1985. Hynek at the time suggested that the phenomenon could be coming from a parallel reality or another dimension. Oberg pointed out that even creditable, intelligent witnesses would be capable of misidentifying flying objects such as when astronomers in the USSR reported UFOs in 1967 and it turned out they had actually witnessed tests of space-to-Earth thermonuclear warheads. Oberg has also weighed in against the UFO hypothesis in the case of the STS-48 Shuttle Video from 1991, which was purported by some to show huge objects moving at sharp right turns. Oberg believes that such images have prosaic explanations. "It's a phenomenon that's very familiar," Oberg said on the Larry King Show. We've seen "this

Spotlight on: Jean Houston

Tonight's guest, Dr. Jean Houston, a world renowned author and lecturer, is widely considered to be one of the powerhouses of the Human Potential movement. Houston was a protégé of the great anthropologist Margaret Mead, and she also co-led seminars with the influential mythologist Joseph Campbell. In the 1960's she married Robert Masters (the sexologist who co-authored the Masters-Johnson Report) and together they studied altered states of consciousness derived through LSD usage, which was documented in their book The Varieties of Psychedelic Experience. Later, they focused their research on altering consciousness via meditation and guided imagery. In the 1990's, it was reported that Houston was an advisor to Hillary Clinton, visiting her at the White House and conducting playful exercises with her to get in touch with the wisdom of Eleanor Roosevelt. One of Houston's long-standing endeavors is the Mystery School which she began in 1984. "Mystery School is a community of ordina

Spotlight on: SETI@home

Want to contribute to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence? SETI@home lets you (well your computer actually) get into the act. Why, you could even be out having lunch, while your computer running a special screensaver, is contributing useful bits of data to the study. Launched in May of 1999, the program takes advantage of what is called "distributed-computing," which makes use of many separate computers each processing small "work units" which are then sent back to the SETI@home lab at UC Berkeley. The program is parceling out data gleaned from the huge radio telescope at Arecibo, with the overall intention of detecting signals from outer space that appear to be coming from an intelligent source. Many were skeptical of how useful this group collaboration would be when it first began. But as of May 2002 there were over 3,725,900 signed-up participants whose computers had analyzed a staggering 983,487 years of computer processing time. According to one project director,

Friday Night Feature: The Thing at the Window

Before moving to Arizona in 1959, I lived in the small town of DowagiacMichigan. It must have been 1956 or 57, I was 6 or 7 years old. The boythat lived across the street was a spoiled little rich kid. This kid hada basement full of the latest and best toys you could buy. I was over tohis house one night and we were playing the pinball machine he had inthe basement. Over all the dings and bells of the machine we both heardsome grunting and clawing. We stopped playing and looked toward thenoise. When we looked at the basement window there was this terribleface staring at us, and this thing was scratching at the window. The face was bright, almost shining red (in more contemporaryterms, it was a raw skinned face like Freddie Krueger). Well, weboth let out blood curdling screams. This thing bolted at the noise andwe dashed up the stairs. We felt it was a race, for at the top of thestairs was the back door and we felt that this thing was going to thedoor. But w

When Lex met Lexa

Tonight's guest, Dr. Evelyn Paglini, was born into a centuries old family of practitioners of the Occult, and at an early age received training in Natural Magic. Back when I was living in New York City, I had occasion to interview a Manhattan witch. It was the summer of 1999, and Blair Witch Project had just come out and the hype was making some people dredge up very negative associations with witchcraft. At an occult shop called Enchantments, I met with Lexa Roséan, the stores' longtime manager and resident witch. Lexa was truly a witch for the modern era, complete with her own publicist. (She's the author of a series of popular magical spell books published under the banner of The Supermarket Sorceress.) In recent years, she told me, many have been more informed about Wicca, such as knowing that it's related to goddess worship, "but since Blair Witch Project came out, they are back to this sort of stupid mentality." Explaining why witches get such a bad rap, Lexa said "ther

Egyptian Roots

Laurence Gardner has drawn some fascinating conclusions about the roots of modern day Judeo-Christianity. In a lecture he presented at the Nexus Conference in 1998, he discussed how many stories, prayers, and rituals in Judaism and Christianity are actually hybrids or adaptations from older Egyptian, Canaanite and Mesopotamian traditions.

Is Bigfoot Interdimensional?

Tonight's guest Dr. Matthew Johnson will be reporting about his encounter with a Sasquatch. An ongoing debate in the Cryptozoology field is whether or not Bigfoot could be an interdimensional rather than flesh and blood creature. Experts such as Loren Coleman believe that solid evidence such as tracks and other samples lend credence to the creature being a physical form. Paranormal researcher Rob Riggs told After Dark that "we always want to jump right in and say that's extradimensional or paranormal but you know I think we may simply be talking about creatures that have access to physical spaces that humans cannot perceive. That they in fact are three-dimensional physical creatures but they are able to go into spaces that lie outside our perception because they are outside our reality tunnel…that somehow these creatures enter into spaces that we have not mentally tuned into." Meanwhile remote viewer Ed Dames, who was just on the show last week, also commented on the Bigfoot

Weather Paradox: Global Warming & Ice Age

Tonight's guest Henry Willis has examined how weather changes can have a severe effect on the world. One of the most intriguing paradoxes about the current situation is how global warming can actually contribute to what has been called a "New Little Ice Age," which could form in the northern hemisphere. "Earth's climate has changed rapidly in the past and could change rapidly in the future," write Terrence Joyce and Lloyd Keigwin, scientists for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. In their article, they lay out how weather changes can be brought on by modifications in the ocean currents. Known as the "Great Ocean Conveyor," heat in the ocean generally moves from the equator towards both of the poles. When the conveyor system last broke from this pattern (estimated by climatologists to be 12,000 years ago) a dramatic cooling took place. What could be bringing us to that point again may be caused by the increase in fresh water in the North Atlantic Ocean, which normally maint

Friday Night Feature Strangeness in Sacramento

I have been listening to Art Bell since '94. At the time I was living in Sacramento in an old Victorian and worked for acompany based out of Seattle. My friend and I went to visit a psychic inSeattle and she asked me if i had a stuffed bear missing, or keys...thingssmall in nature. I said yes and that it drove me nuts. She told me I hada little apparition following me around named Adriana. She told me that thislittle girl who "slept" with me at night (I know freaky) was the soul of myfuture daughter....Needless to say this "Adriana" was quite mischievious...shewould turn lights on and off, move things and flick on the TV. SometimesI felt like I could smell her. It was very strange. At the time the apartment I was renting, although very beautiful, didn't alwaysoffer such "cute" little experiences. I would always smell somebodycigarette smoking...No one lived above me or below me and I could never figureout the source of the smell...I came to find out

Spotlight on: Remote Viewing

As most faithful listeners of Coast to Coast know, Remote Viewing doesn't refer to surfing on your couch with a remote control. Rather it's a type of psychic information gathering that was used by a secret government-spying program for over twenty years. Remote viewing (RV) rose to prominence when the CIA declassified the military's program in 1995, and the subject was featured in mainstream media at that time. One purpose of the military unit was as kind of a keeping up with the (psychic) Jones's, namely the Russians and KGB, during the Cold War years. Major Ed Dames, tonight's guest, worked on the military unit and can be probably be credited with doing the most to popularize the subject of RV since then. The basic RV technique involves perceiving a location or target that the viewer is not present at either in space or time, with the viewer sketching and then verbally describing their impressions, usually in different stages. What perhaps sets RV apart from other psychic g

The Columbia Connection

Tonight's guest Michael E. Salla, PhD makes some interesting extrapolations between an ET presence on our planet and current events. In a commentary on his website he ponders whether the recent Columbia Shuttle disaster could actually be the result of a secretive clash between governments. Citing the work of scholar Zecharia Sitchin, Salla outlines how the Anunnaki, an ancient group of extraterrestrials who interacted with the Sumerians, may have brought advanced technology to their civilization. This technology might be buried in an ancient city such as Uruk (in modern day Iraq), which the German government had recently begun plans to excavate. Salla writes there may be a connection between this planned dig and Germany's refusal to participate in a preemptive war against Iraq. Further, Salla suggests that the Columbia could have been shot down as a warning not to attack Iraq, and that the conflict "may well mask a deeper desire to gain access and control of extraterrestrial technolog

A "NEAT" Controversy

Tonight's guest Daniel Durda has studied smaller objects moving in our solar system such as asteroids and comets. Recently there was an eruption of controversy surrounding the comet NEAT, with accusations spreading via the Internet that NASA was covering up information about its trajectory. According to an article on Space.com, web-based rumors widely circulated that the comet was planet-sized and could radically alter Earth's weather. In fact the comet, which was observed receiving a coronal mass ejection as it approached the sun, is only a few miles wide according to scientists. It currently is heading back to the outer solar system and away from Earth. Yet, a report that recently surfaced associated with the Rand Corp. added to the controversy. It was suggested that if the Earth was about to be hit by a large asteroid, authorities might not inform the public in order to avoid mass panic, when nothing really could be done to prevent it. Later it came out that the information wa

Will the US use Chemical Agents?

Both of tonight's guests, Steve Quayle (first hour) and David Hagberg, have studied the global situation as it relates to potential warfare. Yesterday a report was published in the Independent UK detailing how the US military is preparing to use chemical and gas compounds in Iraq. Specifically they named the toxic riot-control agent CS gas as well as pepper spray. CS is a kind of tear gas, 0-chlorobenzalmalononitrile in powder form, which is usually mixed with a dispersal agent, like methylene chloride. It can be used to force people out of a building and its symptoms include extreme burning in the nose and throat, vomiting and nausea. While it's not fatal, its use had been banned along with other agents in the Chemical Weapons Convention that the US signed in 1975. The Independent also wrote that "internal Pentagon documents…show that the US is developing a range of calmative gases, also banned for battlefield use." These could be similar to the chemicals used in the Moscow theat

Friday Night Double Feature

The Child's MotherI have been a Registered Nurse now for approximately 5 years in the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan. My co-workers and I will never forget what had happened to us one night on Sept. 24, 1998. I was working the night shift from 7pm to 7am. Like many hospitals, we work a 12 hour shift schedule. I was working on a pediatric unit back then. I was caring for a 3 year-old child that had suffered from multiple burns and trauma. The child was involved in an automobile accident. The mother was driving down a local highway, when suddenly she lost control of her vehicle and was hit head on by an oncoming semi-truck. The mother was killed instantly but the child, who was in the back seat had survived. On the night of Sept. 24,1998 when I was caring for the child, all of the nurses, including myself, had finished making rounds and were sitting behind the nurse's station charting. The time was approximately 0200 in the am. We had baby monitors placed in various patient
