Many claim a hidden shadow government is really controlling the shots. Morgan Reynolds, Ph.D., is professor emeritus at Texas A&M University and former director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis headquartered in Dallas, TX. He joined Richard Syrett in the first half of the show to discuss shadow governments and the deep state, who is controlling them, and what they ultimately want.
Reynolds defined the deep state as a permanent bureaucratic structure, noting how some extend the definition to include financial powers such as the military-industrial complex. He suggested it is not in the interest of these 'merchants of death' for the United States to have a good relationship with Russia. "The deep state this time around, we've seen them in effect get control of Trump, who's reversed so many foreign policy decisions," he said.
The shadow government had appointed handlers for presidents Reagan and Bush as well, Reynolds continued. He spoke about America's founding fathers who sought to avoid foreign alliances and entanglements, the false pretenses used to get the nation into war in Afghanistan, and how the FBI had no hard evidence connecting Osama bin Laden to 9-11. Reynolds also pointed out how shortly after entering Afghanistan, a central bank was set up by presidential decree and, curiously, the same thing was done in Iraq and Libya.
A University of British Columbia professor has researched the real possibility of time travel and says it's all too real. Dr. Ben Tippett created a formula based on Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity, which states that huge cosmic objects like stars and black holes distort space and time. In the second half of the show, he explained how a recent detection of gravitational waves created by distant colliding black holes confirmed Einstein's theory of time travel.
"Mathematical models that allow people to travel backwards in time have existed since the 1950s," Tippett said, noting how Einstein connected time to the three spatial dimensions. A consequence of space and time being fastened together is the rate time passes, and depends on one's motion, he added. Tippett explained how in his model it is mathematically possible to travel back in time within a Tardis-type of vehicle, but not possible to change the past in any way. Within the time machine one would go in a circle forward, sideways, and backward in time, he revealed, noting how the movie 12 Monkeys comes the closest to approximating actual time travel.
