Philip Haney studied Arabic culture and language while working as a scientist in the Middle East before becoming a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2002. He joined WND editor Art Moore to discuss how after Haney's sterling career at DHS, he was disciplined for investigating potential terrorists and terror-linked Muslims and mosques -- including information that might have prevented the Boston Marathon bombing, and later the San Bernadino massacre. Haney's first sign of conflict with the DHS occurred in 2006, when he wrote an article for the web called Green Tide Rising related to Palestinian voters endorsing Hamas. The DHS accused him of breaching protocol, and committing an ethical violation, though he was eventually exonerated.
Moore detailed how Haney was ordered by the DHS to alter or modify information because it was not politically correct. The problem with Saudi Arabia in relation to terrorism, said Haney, is that the country supports Islamic schools called madrasas in Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh. They send Saudi males there to be educated in Koranic theology and other Islamic texts, and these schools often function as a breeding ground for terrorist organizations, he cited. Further, we need to look closer at the fact that Islam teaches Sharia law, which is incompatible with the US constitution, Haney emphasized.
In the latter half, doctor of cognition and neuroscience Gerald Epling talked about the powers of the mind, as well as research on phenomenal bio-communication in which he's replicated and extended the work of Cleve Backster, measuring and recording the responses of one life form to another. "What I've learned about the brain...helps a lot of other people understand why they have trouble with stress or anxiety," Epling commented. The mind can change the chemicals that the brain's hypothalamus produces-- "if you get stressed, adrenaline kicks in...the hypothalamus senses this and sends a signal to the pituitary gland...let's release some soothing cortisol so you feel better," he detailed, adding that going for a walk for 20 minutes can also de-stress and send endorphins into the body.
"It turns out a lot of the brain is doing some activity when we're not thinking about it," such as memory which is consolidated over a certain period of time, he noted. Epling reported that he was able to replicate Backster's experiments demonstrating that plants feel pain, as well as have reactions to certain human thoughts and actions.
