In the first half, disclosure activist Stephen Bassett talked about the importance of UFO nuclear tampering evidence, the implications of Edgar Mitchell's recent comments about UFOs, and the current political landscape for disclosure. In the first Disclosure Hearings held in 2001, Capt. Robert Salas testified how nuclear warheads were shut down when UFOs hovered over Malmstrom AFB. In all this time, the US government has never addressed this nuclear evidence, because they don't want to acknowledge the ET issue, Bassett remarked. Mitchell, an Apollo 14 astronaut, has lately been speaking out about how top-ranking military sources observed UFOs during weapons testing.
Bassett foresees the "truth embargo" ending before the next US president is in office in January, 2016. Hillary Clinton and her top advisor John Podesta may directly engage the Rockefeller Initiative before the first primaries, because the media is so interested in the UFO topic, he suggested. While he believes Obama will be the first disclosure president, the candidate elected in 2016 will have the best chance in shaping American policy on the ET question in the post-disclosure world, he said.
In the latter half, author and former California trial lawyer Jeff Mudgett discussed his great-great-grandfather, H.H. Holmes, who was arguably one of the most prolific serial killers in America. Trained as a doctor, Holmes was a brilliant psychopath, who set up an elaborate "Murder Castle" in Chicago, with the ability to gas victims in different rooms before sending them down a chute to his basement, which was a kind of house of horrors. He found numerous female victims, who were typically visiting from out of town, during the Chicago World's Fair of 1893. Subsequent to his trial (which Mudgett called the OJ Simpson trial of its day), Holmes admitted killing 27 innocent victims, though the evidence indicates that number was actually far higher.
After he was executed, a 'Holmes curse' was said to exist, in which a number of people associated with his trial, arrest, or execution either died, or suffered terrible misfortune or luck. This led Mudgett to suspect that Holmes may have paid off the warden to have someone else executed instead of him, as the body was immediately placed into cement, without being examined. He believes that if Holmes escaped, he may have wreaked revenge on these various people. Mudgett hopes to have his ancestor's body exhumed to prove it's not him. Interestingly, before his arrest, Holmes traveled to London, and Mudgett is convinced that he committed one of the Jack the Ripper murders-- that of Catherine Eddowes, who was killed in 1888. A movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Holmes, Devil in the White City, may soon be greenlighted.
