The 4th Reich in America

Journalist and author Jim Marrs discussed his new book The Rise of the Fourth Reich, which posits that Nazi ideology threatens to overtake America. This authoritarian ideology-- that the end justifies the means, is practiced by various secret societies sometimes called the Illuminati, who function within the US as well as globally, he explained. A number of powerful and wealthy families in America supported the Nazis leading up to WWII, and these same families own media conglomerates and corporate entities that exist today, he detailed. As many as 100,000 Nazis were brought over to the U.S. after the war-- some sharing their advanced technology in programs such as Project Paperclip, in exchange for immunity, said Marrs. He described technology such as the Nazi Bell, a large conical shaped device with rotating magnetic fields which allowed for the manipulation of energy at both the atomic and subatomic level. This may have been the same technology used in the Philadelphia ... More »

Earth & Solar Changes

Author & researcher Mitch Battros discussed his work on the history and current state of earth changes, including the Sun/Earth connection and the implications of Solar Cycle 24. We'll see an escalation of earth changes and extreme weather as we move into this solar cycle, and there'll likely be a mass migration of people moving inland from coastal areas in our lifetime, he said. There are four major earthquake 'swarms' currently active, running from Alaska to Mexico and these could be related to plate shifts in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, he noted.Ancient texts suggest certain patterns to earth changes, a kind of "science of cycles," said Battros, who believes the Mayans were attuned to such cycles. He noted that Solar Cycle 24 will be reaching its apex around the start of 2012. Solar changes and geomagnetic storms have an affect on the magnetic field around us, he pointed out. An increase of charged particles can affect people's psychological being, in both positive a ... More »

Dire Web Bot Predictions

George Ure and his colleague 'Clif' shared their web bot predictions about America and global events. Their method captures changes in language patterns within Internet discussions. This aggregated data is then processed with software to determine various keywords, which they interpret in a predictive fashion. Emotional events from the future can subconsciously imprint into the present and trickle into language, Clif further explained.Here are some of their predictions for the remainder of 2008 (and beyond): In late March, look for massive unemployment to take hold. During the summer, a backlash against the US government could involve a call to hold the elections early. As the housing industry continues its collapse, there could be a seizure or lock-up of the ability to transfer property. A "fuzzy revolution" could involve squatters or collectives moving into empty or foreclosed homes.In October, there'll be a major stock market crash or a climate eve ... More »

Solomon, Knights Templar & White Gold

Historian Laurence Gardner traced the connections between King Solomon & his Temple, the Knights Templar, the Ark of the Covenant, Free Masonry, and White Powder Gold. Solomon, who lived around 1,000 BC, built the first temple of Jerusalem, set an example for 'kingship,' and was thought to have stocked his temple with treasures. The Temple changed hands over the years, and eventually became an Islamic mosque, Gardner noted. The Knights Templar, a kind of ambassadorial military unit, conducted excavations at the Temple during the first Crusades. When they returned to Europe in 1128, they became a powerful knightly order, made wealthy by the treasures they had brought back from Jerusalem, he detailed. The Ark of the Covenant, according to the Bible, was used as a kind of high-tech weapon during wars. The magical White Powder Gold or manna along with the Ark, suggest the ancient Hebrews had an advanced science. It was the knowledge of these ancient secrets that the Free Masons ... More »

Did We Go to the Moon?

British publisher for Nexus Magazine, Marcus Allen, presented his analysis of the Apollo moon landing, which he believes may have been faked. The reason for such a hoax was "basically for propaganda," so that America could demonstrate its "technological superiority over the USSR," he explained. Even if the trip to the moon occurred, Allen thinks the photographs supposedly taken on the lunar surface were phony. Photos taken by astronauts may have been fogged and useless, so instead images were made on the realistic simulation sets that had been used for training, he hypothesized. ... More »

Space Viruses & Comets

Physicist James McCanney returned to the program to discuss meteors, comets and viruses from space. He noted that around 1100 AD the Chinese began relating flu epidemics with inferior conjunctions of Venus (when the planet passes between the Earth and the Sun). Viruses are not alive in the way that bacteria are, and can replicate simply from their complex chemical structure, he explained, suggesting that some viruses might travel from comets or celestial bodies to Earth. ...

The Search for Atlantis

Monday's main guest, Dr. Gregory Little (website) of the Edgar Cayce organization A.R.E., discussed a startling find he made off the coast of Andros Island. This massive underground structure, which Little photographed, could have been part of the legendary Atlantis that Cayce had given readings about. About 4.5 football fields in length, he suggested it may have been "an ancient breakwater enclosing a harbor."Regarding another find, that of megalithic structures found off Cuba, (reported on Little suspects, rather than being ancient, they may actually be dismantled concrete missile structures that were dumped in the ocean by the Soviets. Plato originally described Atlantis as an "island empire," Little said, and indeed according to Cayce, a cataclysmic event that occurred in 28,000 BC split the large continent into five major islands. Cayce also described the Atlanteans as having possession of a large crystal, which groups meditated upon to gain power. One of t ... More »

Comets & Solar Flares

Much of the current solar activity "is caused by comets approaching the sun," said maverick physicist James McCanney (website) who was the guest for the first half of Friday's show. He believes that an entourage of minor planet-sized objects have been bombarding the sun, and as evidence for this, he has gathered various visual data on this page on his website. Further, he suggested that SOHO astronomers may have been keeping such information under wraps. McCanney said that it would difficult to draw a one-to-one correlation between geologic activity at Yellowstone and the recent outbursts from the sun. But statistically, he pointed out, there is a relationship between volcanism and solar flares.He theorized that there may be numerous "Planet X"-sized objects that make their way into our solar system over millennia as indigenous legends have described, and that our greatest worry may be debris streams that come from these objects during their passing. ...

Tesla & Atlantis

Physicist James McCanney talked about his new book Atlantis to Tesla. He believes Tesla had access to the mysterious Kolbrin Bible while growing up, and this may have impacted his later ideas. This bible, McCanney said, describes massive devastation to the Earth caused by passing comets. A phenomenon that may be heading our way again, he cautioned. It was this kind of destruction that sunk the continent of Atlantis, which McCanney placed in the South China Sea. y. ... More »
