In the first half of the show, George Knapp spoke with controversial operative Gordon Novel about his plans to replicate an ET spacecraft-- the so-called Alien Reproduction Vehicle (ARV) that the US government is alleged to have back-engineered from discs that crash landed in 1947. According to Novel, he expropriated the government's ARV data to yield his own pending patent to construct a working Replication ARV Machine (RAM), which makes use of antigravity technology that could also be used to solve the energy crisis.
However, since his book Supreme Cosmic Secret has come out, he said the CIA and 'Majestic 12' have been harassing him, and deterring his progress. Previously, he had the cooperation of the CIA, and worked with Ron Pandolfi, a former CIA analyst, he stated. Novel also discussed his involvement with Jim Garrison's investigation into the JFK assassination, and his subsequent conflict with Garrison.
In the latter half of the show, Janis Sharp, mother of British computer hacker Gary McKinnon, talked about her campaign to prevent her son from being extradited to the US to face trial and imprisonment. McKinnon admitted hacking into a range of private networks including NASA and the US military while looking for data on UFO cover-ups. Sharp pointed that his confession was taken without a lawyer present, and that he'd been told that he would only get community service. He also suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, she noted.
Before he was apprehended, McKinnon had been hacking into the system for 6 months to a year but was leaving notes pointing out the numerous security problems. In an effort to bring his plight to the attention of Pres. Obama, Sharp enlisted such well-known musicians as David Gilmour, Chrissie Hynde, and Bob Geldof to participate in a music video of the Graham Nash song, Chicago.
George Knapp is scheduled to teach an investigative journalism class-- "Reporting from the Twilight Zone: How Investigative Journalism Looks at Conspiracies, Cover-ups, and Controversial Subjects." The Tuesday night course, starting on January 19th, is offered through the College of Southern Nevada and is listed here (scroll down to GRC 198B / 004).
