Authority on Nostradamus and prophetic traditions, John Hogue, discussed how September will be the most dramatic month of the year with seismic activity hitting not only nature, but the economy, politics, and the Middle East. He foresees seven different earthshaking events to occur, or get their start in September 2011:
- United Nations declares Palestine a sovereign state.
- The European bank crisis worsens.
- Recession in the US returns.
- Hurricane season peaks.
- Syria has a civil war.
- Israeli/Middle East war takes place.
- Earthquakes/tsunamis caused by Comet Elenin.
The Arab-Israeli war could be a short but violent one, in which the Israelis knock out a group such as Hamas, and ironically this could then lead to peace talks, he said. More on the seven seismic events, here.
Hogue talked about how there is no connection between Nostradamus' prophecies and those related to 2012. Nostradamus did single out the year 1999 as significant, and Hogue noted that it was around then that a gradual change of historic seasons began, as we switched from a Piscean to Aquarian age. Hogue said he stands by his prediction that Obama will be reelected in 2012. He also foresees the decade of the 2020s as the most upheaval-filled time in human history, when climate change, population stresses, and other factors reach a critical mass.
Road Rage & Drugs
First hour guest, Dr. Peter Breggin talked about the 'road rage' epidemic, and its connection with anti-depressant drugs, such as SSRIs. These drugs can stimulate a kind of agitation inside a person, so that they're easily triggered into doing something that they wouldn't ordinarily do, such as road rage behavior, he reported. The government and FDA have dragged their feet on recognizing medication-induced violence, even though there's plenty of data for it, he added. For more, see his related paper (PDF file).
