Joyce Riley

Biography:

Joyce Riley is a Registered Nurse who has been a Director of Nursing of four institutions and has been a heart, lung, liver and kidney transplant nurse. She also served as a Captain in the USAF in support of Operation Desert Storm, flying active duty missions on a C-130 aircraft from Alaska to Cuba. Her experience as a medical-legal testifying expert in medical malpractice trials gave her the background to investigate the truth about the Gulf War Illness. She has since become an advocate for all veterans and citizens experimented upon by the government. Joyce was a whistle-blower in the famous "Baby Death" case in which Nurse Genene Jones, (who now serves a life sentence in the Texas Prison system) was convicted of causing injury to many babies in the Bexar County Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. She presently serves a spokesperson for the American Gulf War Veterans Association.

Nessie & Bigfoot

Writer and producer Lee Frank discussed his expeditions in search of the Loch Ness monster (Nessie), as well as his investigations into the Bigfoot mystery. Sightings of Nessie date back to 565 AD when a Celtic monk reported seeing the creature. Though a lot of photos of Nessie over the years have turned out to be hoaxes, Frank visited Loch Ness in the 1970s and was impressed by witness testimony. Terrified locals described seeing a creature with a horse-like head, red eyes, and horn-like appendages, he noted. In addition, there's been around 20 land-based sightings, he detailed. For instance, in 1933, a huge beast with a long bulbous body was seen crossing a road. The Loch Ness area has also been home to a lot of supernatural activity such as "corpse lights," said Frank, and cryptozoologists such as Ted Holiday came to believe that Nessie might have a paranormal connection.Frank said he has a hair sample of Bigfoot, which has so far proved to be inconclusive. He suspects that ... More »

Prophetic Visions

Nostradamus scholar John Hogue (hogueprophecy) returned to the show as the main guest on Monday night.He discussed his new biography of Nostradamus, which he said attempts to sort out the patchwork of myths and facts about the seer's life. One of Nostradamus quatrains offered a far-flung prediction: In the year 3797, the sun would have "a great conflagration that would devour the Earth," Hogue recounted. Offering his own forecasts for the future, Hogue said he accesses his predictive powers via a Zen-like "effortless effort," which he first developed during voice training while singing Opera. He sees the time period of 2008-2009, as when major upheavals could occur, such as an explosion at Yellowstone and/or a major biochemical attack by terrorists. He also believes that this is a likely time frame for a war between China and Taiwan. On a more positive note, he said by 2015 the next generation of telescopes will be able to see signs of artificial light on neighboring worlds. ... More »

Gulf War II Mystery Illness

Gulf War Vet advocate Joyce Riley (gulfwarvets.com) appeared in the first half of Friday's show to discuss the mysterious illness affecting the troops in Iraq. She related details in the case of Josh Neusche, a 20-year soldier who died on July 12, 2003 after going on a "hauling" mission at the Baghdad Airport. At first, Riley said that Neusche's parents were told their son had been affected by a toxin, then the explanation was changed to pneumonia. Now with over 50 soldiers falling ill, the Anthrax vaccine is being called the culprit. Riley believes we are not being told the true story, and speculated that the soldiers may have been wearing defective protective suits during a chemical exposure. However, "I think the story is going to be whitewashed and removed from the scene," she said. For more on her investigation, read Riley's press release. ... More »
