In the first half, author, adventurer, and journalist Robert Young Pelton talked about terrorism, and his Expedition Kony project. He addressed the possibility that there could be incidents at the Winter Olympics being held in Sochi, Russia (in the past few days, police have searched for three women identified as potential suicide bombers). The location of Sochi near the Georgian border is not far from troubled regions and semi-autonomous republics in the area, and may attract a variety of people who want to make trouble for the Russians during the Olympics, he cautioned.
With the threat of a possible attack, certain groups from Chechnya have been successful in instilling fear and dampening enthusiasm for potential travelers to the Olympics, Pelton noted, adding that because of corruption and bribery among security forces, it could be easy for terrorists to smuggle in materials. Offering an update on his Expedition Kony project, in which he plans to seek out the fugitive warlord and alleged mass murderer Joseph Kony, he said he'll also be exploring the central part of the African continent and reporting on his findings for Vice magazine.
In the second half, Joshua Abraham discussed the "ancient astronaut theory" and how it relates to the New World Order. Joshua is the son of Larry Abraham, the man who co-wrote the best selling 1971 novel None Dare Call It Conspiracy, which exposed the "smoking gun" proof for the plans and the agenda of the New World Order. Joshua suggested that the bloodline of US presidents can be traced all the way back to British monarchies, Roman Caesars, and Egyptian Pharaohs.
As proof for "ancient astronauts," he cited the accounts on Sumerian tablets (as translated by Zecharia Sitchin) that serpent gods came down from the sky, genetically altered humans, and taught them technology. Expressing an evangelical Christian viewpoint, Abraham related tales of the ancient gods to biblical accounts of the Nephilim or fallen angels, whom he believes the New World Order and the Elite are aligned with.
