Prophecy scholar John Hogue discussed what the future has in store, including the economy, elections, climate change and terrorism. We're entering the first half of a 36 year cycle-- a chaotic, revolutionary period, he stated. Right now, we're heading into a recession in some sectors, but he doesn't foresee a depression for at least 2 years.
A Pluto/Capricorn transit for the next 18 years indicates we're entering the "the era of the executive," in which CEOs can wield more power than politicians, Hogue announced. Accordingly, should Michael Bloomberg decide to enter the presidential race as an independent candidate (possibly in March) he could finish at least second, he commented. Hillary Clinton will win the 2008 race, Hogue declared, but he also sees Obama as a president, possibly moving up from being Hillary's VP in four to eight years.
2008 could see a terrorist attack, smaller than 9-11 but with greater impact, he predicted, adding that Europe may be the likely target. Hogue expressed concern over the environment-- "we're past the tipping point" concerning fossil fuel and global warming, and may see a cascade of problems if changes aren't made soon. He also touched on the identity of the Antichrist. Citing Nostradamus' use of the word "Mabus," he suggested that the third Antichrist was Saddam Hussein.
First hour guest, author & lecturer Raymond Moody gave an update on his work, and studies of near-death phenomena. His forthcoming book will offer a "new system for rational thinking" -- a way for people to "reformat" their minds, he said. Moody will be appearing at the upcoming Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles.
