In the first half of the program, author and consultant Andrew Colarik talked about cyber attacks against the US by our enemies, the downed drone in Iran, and how identity theft could lead to terrorism. "We're getting, literally, thousands of attacks on all kinds of our infrastructure from all over the world," he declared, noting that the problem is under reported because it is so commonplace. Colarik was particularly concerned about the threat this poses to America's infrastructure, such as the electrical grid, water distribution, and waste disposal systems, since much of them are run remotely via a central computerized command.
Colarik strongly urged a "national discussion" on the issue of cyber attacks, what they may cause, and how to respond. "It should be a whole understanding by the American people," he said, which determines how the country wants to govern the cyber world and best protect our national assets and interests. Chillingly, Colarik also noted that the United States has not made a determination as to what constitutes an 'act of war' with regards to cyber warfare. He stressed that this lack of parameters leaves the country vulnerable to potentially calamitous missteps in response to a cyber attack. "You take the wrong escalation and you're going to create a problem that will effect not only you, but all of us," he warned.
In the second half of the show, researcher and author Marshall Klarfeld discussed the ancient ET race, the Annunaki, and how a possible cloaked space object, spotted near Mercury, could be one of their motherships. Based on his research, he surmised that the Annunaki created a mothership as a proverbial weigh station to facilitate their gold mining operations after they arrived on Earth. He cited the 11th tablet of the Epic of Gilgamesh as evidence for this mothership, since the story details how the Annunaki escaped the Earth during the 'great flood' and fled to the craft. In turn, Klarfeld asserted that the entities may not be on Nibiru, but actually much closer and watching us from the mothership near Mercury.
Klarfeld was also very intrigued by a crop circle which appeared in Poirino, Italy this past Summer. He contended that this formation, which he called "the most magnificent crop circle I've ever seen," was a communication from Enki, one of the Annunaki leaders. Contained within the crop circle, Klarfeld claimed, was binary code that spells out Enki's full name as well as a warning about radiation and a reference to a specific human gene. Based on this, he suggested that there may be an impending galactic super wave and the Annunaki are trying to alert the human race to the importance of the gene in surviving the effects of the subsequent overwhelming radiation.
Once venerated by the natives of Madagascar, the island's lemurs are becoming endangered as cultural changes have resulted in the creature now being seen as a viable food source. Previously, it had been considered taboo on the island to hunt or kill the animal, but a recent study uncovered a staggering number of lemurs being eaten in villages on the island. Experts blame outsiders coming to work at the island's mines and their rising demand for meat as the key factor in the lemur's changing fortunes. More on the story at BBC News.
