Pearl Harbor Attack & Open Lines

Date: 12-07-12
Host: George Noory
Guests: Open Lines, Douglas Dietrich

In the first half, George Noory welcomed renegade military historian Douglas Dietrich, who revealed what his research has uncovered about the attack on Pearl Harbor. FDR's administration provoked Japan and led the United States into war in order to pull the country out of the Great Depression, he said. Dietrich credited FDR with abolishing the gold standard and flooding the U.S. economy with fiat paper currency. According to Dietrich, this move was at the suggestion of avowed communist and White House economist Lauchlin Bernard Currie, who pushed for a global war and was later identified as a Soviet operative.

The Americans were actually going to bomb Japan first by flying out of China under the Chinese national colors, he continued, noting that Pearl Harbor was a set up from the beginning. The Japanese learned their codes had been cracked and they were sailing into a trap after one of their midget submarines had been sunk, he explained. Dietrich said the Japanese commanders were determined to carry out the first wave of attacks and were surprised to find the American ships at Pearl Harbor anchored side-by-side and chained together. There were three U.S. carriers operating evasive maneuvers to ambush the Japanese fleet as part of a propaganda plan to swoop in after the attack and save the day, he disclosed.

Salvage divers were sent in after the attack to see if there was anything they could salvage from the damaged ships, Dietrich reported. Even though the divers could hear trapped sailors tapping out S.O.S. for weeks, they were ordered not to cut into bulkheads to rescue any of them, he said. The powers orchestrating the war did not want witnesses and had loaded the ships with charges to sink them had the Japanese attack failed, Dietrich offered. He also commented on the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, pointing out that because the constitutionality of this event has been held up no individual is safe from federal search, seizure, and impoundment, and U.S. citizenship has ceased to have any meaning.

During Open Lines, Cameron in Reno, Nevada, phoned the 'intervention' line to share a rather miraculous story. Cameron said he was a star athlete in school and a three-time state track champion until he broke his back. He later joined the military and two years into his service once again broke his back. Cameron explained that he was unable to walk but through sheer determination willed himself to walk again. Linda from Rosita, California, recalled the time she was staying with relatives in the country and encountered 'a messenger' who announced that her mother would soon pass away. According to Linda, her mother suddenly became ill and was taken to a hospital, where she eventually died of complications from brain surgery. Sid in Port Townsend, Washington, called in to discuss flesh-eating bacteria. He said his best friend died after contracting the condition. Sid suggested that a decompression chamber could be used to stop the flesh-eating bacteria from spreading.

A newly published study examines the remarkable phenomenon of catfish in southwest France that hunt birds. Researchers spent several months watching as hungry catfish partially beached themselves to grab a pigeon dinner, before wriggling back into the water to consume their prey. The unusual behavior has never been seen among catfish in their native range, according to The Telegraph. Read more here.
