In the first half, author Bobby Akart talked about threats to national and personal security that could come about if the U.S. was the victim of an array of disasters and attacks. He has written a series of novels about societal collapse and post-apocalyptic societies, which he based on scenarios he believes are becoming more likely. Akart said that the old Boy Scout motto, "Be prepared" should be a guide for the 21st century because of the threats we face from economic collapse or cyber attack, and perhaps a combination of the two, as well as a number of natural causes.
Regarding cyber warfare threats to the U.S. from foreign agents, Akart's opinion is that "there is an inverse relationship between the ability to attack and the desire to do so." In other words, the countries most able to bring down our infrastructure will hold back for fear of retaliation, while forces who would most like to threaten us are not in a position to carry it out, at least not yet. Akart theorized that the massive amounts of money ISIS makes from the sale of oil may soon allow them to simply buy the expertise. "I believe in prepping for a worst-case scenario," he said, citing the "rule of threes" as a guide: Humans can only survive three minutes without breathing; three hours without shelter in an extreme environment; three days without water; and three weeks without food.
In the second half, holistic practitioner, shamanic counselor and contactee Sandy Corcoran discussed her communications with ETs and Star Beings, as well as her work with indigenous and ancient wisdom traditions. Her encounters with various beings began in her early years, and included abductions by the "Greys" and "Praying Mantis" types. Some of the entities are "denser in consciousness or intent," and vary from interdimensional to extraterrestrial in origin, she explained. The beings are generally here to raise awareness about potential damages to Earth's environment, and while aboard their ships (sometimes in underwater bases), she said they showed her images on large screens of what the planet would look like if humankind destroyed the air, the water, and the trees.
She spoke about her work using Toth Tarot cards, a specific deck that draws from ancient Egyptian symbols. Her particular divination style helps people to find clarity in their lives rather than predict specific outcomes. Corcoran said she also uses a Medicine or Wisdom Wheel, which assists people in getting to know themselves on a deeper level. "On the Medicine Wheel, there is no past, present, or future. There is only now. What is going to happen in the future is based on how you awaken yourself within that wheel."

Hooked on a Feeling
Shouldn't Be Ashamed

I Only Want to be With You
For What It's Worth
