WikiLeaks Controversies

Date: 12-07-10
Host: George Noory
Guests: Timothy Schultz, Alex Jones

Appearing during the first two hours, radio host Alex Jones offered commentary on the WikiLeaks situation and controversies surrounding Julian Assange's arrest. WikiLeaks founder Assange is being set up and framed with rape charges, he reported. Further, Jones suggested that Cass Sunstein, the White House regulatory czar, is actually behind WikiLeaks and is using it to create a kind of "digital 9-11," or Internet kill switch. "They've got new legislation in place they're calling the Patriot Act for the Internet-- taxation, regulation, web IDs, a total iron curtain over the alternative press," he declared.

Regarding the Army Private (Bradley Manning), suspected of releasing the documents to WikiLeaks, Jones argued that a low level Private would not have access to super-secret US documents and cables that aren't even connected to the US Army. "It's clear that Manning is a patsy from the military angle," and Assange is the patsy as the supposed mastermind, he said. "My point is that this is all being put on display to sell a new McCarthyism in this country, to persecute anybody," and eliminate whistleblowers, Jones warned.

Researching Ghosts

In the third hour, documentary filmmaker Timothy Schultz discussed his search for the true nature of ghosts. He visited various haunted locations, including the Myrtles Plantation, The Bardi Castle in Italy, and the Stanley Hotel in Colorado (location for the film The Shining). He concluded that sudden tragic death seems to be what makes a place haunted, and that part of a deceased person's energy can become stuck in a specific environment. He also touched on his research into orbs, EVPs, and ghost hunting techniques. For those seeking to become ghost hunters, he suggested being patient, open minded, and respectful.

The last hour was devoted to Open Lines, with callers sharing their ghostly encounters.
