George spoke with vampire researcher and self-professed energy vampire Michelle Belanger about modern day vampires as well as psychic vampirism.
Psychic vampires usually have some kind of chronic physical disorder, she explained, which causes them to seek out vital energy from others as a way to temporarily heal themselves. Belanger said she was born with a heart defect, but does not suffer any ill effects from the condition if she takes energy from people. According to Belanger the necessary energy exchange can be a positive one, draining excessive energy from a willing donor and providing extra energy to fill her ongoing deficit.
Belanger discussed her new book, Vampires in Their Own Words, which chronicles the beliefs and practices of nearly two dozen 'self-aware' vampires. She shared stories about several real life vampires, including Kahn and the blood-drinking Sanguinarius. Belanger also commented on several contemporary vampire movies.
During the first hour, journalist Paul Williams shared what his research has uncovered about Al-Qaeda's next terrorist attack on America—a hit that could likely involve the use of nuclear weapons.
According to one of William's sources, at least three nuclear devices have been forward deployed to the US for the what recovered Al-Qaeda documents refer to as the "American Hiroshima." Williams believes these devices are being kept in a Jamaat al Fuqra compound or within a radical mosque. Contrary to popular belief, we do not have equipment capable of locating a tactical nuclear weapon, he said.
Williams talked about his investigation of a 70-acre radical Muslim paramilitary compound in upper New York state, and referred listeners to read his article about it, Springtime in Islamberg.
