In the middle two hours, author, columnist, and television commentator Pat Buchanan discussed his new book State of Emergency, which deals with the immigration crisis. We're raised on the myth that the U.S. is a nation of immigrants-- but it is much different today, he said; the numbers of those coming into the country are far greater, they're breaking in, and they are uninterested in assimilating. "The melting pot is cracked and broken," Buchanan declared, adding that we need a security fence along the entire southern border, in order to stem the influx.
He pointed at the drive towards globalism, in which the elite are planning a North American Union, as a factor that is preventing America from defending its borders more vigorously. What we're seeing now is the de-facto re-annexation of the American Southwest-- ethnically, culturally and linguistically by Mexicans and Hispanics, Buchanan commented.
The last hour of the show was devoted to Open Lines.
First hour guest, reporter and editor for Earthfiles, Linda Moulton Howe, shared updates on the mysterious red rain and crop circles. During August she visited a laboratory in Cardiff, Wales that has been studying the red rain that fell in India, both in 2001 and this past July. One of the scientists she interviewed, Chandra Wickramasinghe, speculated that Earth may be in the path of the same cometary debris every five years, which deposits the red rain. DNA has yet to be found in the cell structure of the rain, and this material could be the "smoking gun for panspermia," he said.
She also spoke about persistent and aggressive military helicopter activity that has been seen over crop circles. In one incident in Wiltshire, England a helicopter was seen chasing a 5-ft.-in-diameter red circle that was flying over a crop formation, she reported. More recently, helicopter activity was associated with circles in a soybean field in Geneseo, Illinois.
