In a special 5-hour show (starting one hour earlier)George Noory welcomed a variety of analysts, who shared their reactions to the election, as well as economic issues.
During the first two hours, columnist John Curtis co-hosted the show. He and George spoke with several reporters from some of C2C's affiliate stations, who gave local perspectives on the election. Obama's victory will help restore America's credibility around the globe and give some adrenaline to the financial markets, said Curtis. He believes Obama will be a dealmaker, shifting to the center, and picking some Republicans as members of his Cabinet.
Political author Jerome Corsi joined the show in the second hour. Though he'd been a detractor of Obama during the campaign, Corsi said it was time to put away his differences. The American people have spoken, and we need to go forward with positive resolve, he added.
Trends researcher Gerald Celente appeared during the third hour, warning that the economic system is going to fail, and the euphoria surrounding Obama will fade by Feb./March, as reality sets in. By 2012, Celente believes there'll be a viable third party based around making financial changes.
In the fourth hour, prophecy scholar John Hogue joined the program, noting that Obama could be the great "black king" Nostradamus prophesied about. He could build an "ecological industrial complex" that will free us from dependence on foreign oil. In the final hour, financial advisor Catherine Austin Fitts appeared, commenting that Obama was still dependent on the failing machinery of the financial system, though he does favor a PAYGO philosophy. She argued for a decentralization of the system, beginning on a grassroots/local level.
