Ufologist and anomalous phenomena expert John Lear joined host David Ruben to raise controversial theories about numerous historical events. According to Lear, the Cold War between the U.S. and Russia was faked so the two nations could focus on dealing with the alien question. Soviet pilot and cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin never went into space, he asserted, adding that many NASA missions were fabricated as well. "There's no film that ever showed the second stage [of a Saturn rocket] going off," he revealed, bringing into question the Apollo moon missions.
The tsunami that hit the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant was caused by an atomic bomb set off by Israelis, he continued. Lear implicated Israel's Mossad in the Kennedy assassination and blamed HAARP for guiding Hurricane Katrina into New Orleans. The events of 9-11 were concocted to generate hatred toward Islamic nations and create the TSA, he argued, noting that Osama bin Laden actually died of medical issues in Kuwait in 2001. He suggested that man co-existed peacefully with dinosaurs as recently as 3,000 years ago, shared details about how the Nazis traded plutonium to the U.S. to get scientists into the country, and blamed the Tunguska event on aliens.
Lear also offered several alternative theories for recent aviation disasters as well as spoke about cloned supersoldiers with no souls and an extraterrestrial plan for the human race. "There's at least eight ET civilizations that are on Earth and directing what's going on here," he explained. They conceived and engineered humanity and have complete control over us, Lear contended, pointing out that there is no such thing as freewill. "If we learn how to live with integrity and without envy, hate and greed, and to express our love to our families... [they will] transfer us to higher dimensions," he said.
In the first hour, 'forbidden archeologist' Michael Cremo talked about evidence for ancient giants. "I think that in the past there were people of larger size than today," he said. Cremo pointed to megalithic structures in southern Siberia built from gigantic stone blocks measuring 20ft by 30ft. Similar constructions have been found in the jungles of Ecuador along with "large stone tools much larger than a human of normal size could use," he noted. According to Cremo, skeletal remains found in Castelnau near Montpellier, France, belonged to a being estimated to have been more than 11ft tall. In addition, ancient Sanskrit writings make reference to living beings that were bigger than contemporary humans, he said.
