Investigative reporter Jon Rappoport (nomorefakenews) blew the lid off Secret Societies as the main guest on Monday's show. "I have compiled a list of 13-14," of these societies which have a covert agenda for domination and control. These groups present a "public face," often a humanitarian cover story, to obscure their true strategy, Rappoport reported. One organization he named was the Bilderburger Group, which he said has been successful in their goal to create a "United States of Europe," as part of their overall plan to eradicate the sovereignty of nations. The Illuminati, he explained, is a term used for groups that generally advocate the abolition of personal property. And both of these stratagems lead to large groups of people being controlled by the few, namely the members of these secret societies, who seek to protect their vast holdings. According to Rappoport, these individuals have an unquenchable thirst for power and seek to enslave people's minds with their v ... More »Host: George Noory
David Darling (website) an astronomer, author, and expert on astrobiology was the main guest on Monday night's show. He commented on a wide palette of topics concerning science, space and life in the universe. "You could have a whole different scale and it would still work," Darling said of life on other planets, postulating something as "powerful as a human brain inside a sugar cube." Regarding the recently photographed dark streaks on Mars, he thought they looked like damp soil that could have been brought about by "microbes that have recently come out of hibernation." Darling, who is planning a new book about teleportation, believes that the physical original (such as a body) being transported, would be dissolved during the process. "You can't retain the original and have the copy at the same time. That's the catch," he said, explaining that the copy is recreated from atoms on the other end. ... More »Host: George Noory
Friday night was another six-hour marathon Coast to Coast, featuring three different guests plus open lines. Raymond Tanter (website), a scholar of The Washington Institute and member of the Council on Foreign Relations, kicked off the early feed. Tanter speculates that a US victory in Iraq will "send shivers down the spine of other rogue leaders." He believes a subsequent war with Iran may be avoided as "the seeds of democracy spread across the border." Next up was Jay H. Lehr (heartland.org), an environmental science expert who served as the Executive Director of the National Ground Water Association for 25 years. He said that luckily the environmental impact of burning oil wells in Iraq will be minimal due to a "huge inversion of air" in that region that keeps gases from rising. Linda Moulton Howe, Earthfiles investigator, appeared on the first hour of the regular broadcast with a report on SARS Pneumonia. She said that the death count was up to 10 worldwide for the myst ...
