In the first half, investigative reporter Greg Hunter offered analysis of the current economic and geopolitical situation. "I think we're headed for another crash" that could be worse than the one in 2008, based on factors such as the European debt crisis, he said. Like the US, Europe also has a huge problem with real estate values collapsing, and he foresees bank failures coming there. In America, with the Federal Reserve, we "outsourced our monetary policy to a bunch of private bankers," who avoid being audited, and have bailed out the upper echelon while ignoring most everyone else, he said. Buying precious metals is a good insurance policy against a coming currency crisis, Hunter continued.
Hunter believes within the next year and a half we'll see a war between Israel and Iran, and the US and Europe will get dragged into it. China, and possibly Russia would be on Iran's side, because they are big trading partners, he noted. Iran may have already smuggled in nukes from North Korea or Pakistan, he added.
Part of DARPA's Project Pegasus as a young child and now a practicing attorney, Andrew D. Basiago claims to be one of America's early time-space explorers. Appearing in the latter half of the show, he discussed his involvement with the CIA's Mars visitation program in 1980. The program, he said, was started in the 1970s, and transported people from a "jump room" (an elevator in El Segundo, CA that served as a kind of portal) to the surface of Mars. According to Basiago, Maj. Ed Dames taught a training course to several of the participants about what to expect in terms of humanoids and "predator species" on the Martian surface (Dames briefly appeared in the 4th hour and denied his involvement with the program).
Also joining the show was William Brett Stillings, who said he was in the Mars visitation program in the early 1980s along with Basiago, and such future luminaries as Barry Soetoro (Pres. Barack Obama), and Regina Dugan (the current head of DARPA). Laura Magdalene Eisenhower, the great granddaughter of Pres. Eisenhower, made an appearance as well, revealing that she was the target of a sophisticated recruitment effort to join the Mars colony in 2006-07, though she turned down the opportunity. Basiago announced that he plans to run for President in 2016.
