Guests Mark Jacobson, Joe Bullard

In the first half, Brooklyn-based writer Mark Jacobson discussed his research on former U.S. naval intelligence worker, Milton William Cooper, who published his manifesto "Behold a Pale Horse" in 1991. Since then, it has gone on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies, becoming the number-one bestseller in the American prison system. Cooper died in a shootout with Apache County police in 2001, one month after September 11th-- earlier in that year, he'd predicted a catastrophe would happen and it would be blamed on Osama bin Laden. Cooper was a Vietnam vet with a history of hospitalization for PTSD, Jacobson recalled. He came to the forefront of the UFO field during the late 1980's with revelations that the US government had cut a deal with aliens to get technology in exchange for abducting citizens.

But by the 1990s, Bill Cooper was calling UFOs a hoax and a distraction from what was really going on-- namely that the 'Illuminati' was running the show, Jacobson detailed. He cited how Cooper was involved in the militia movement of the 1990s and admired by people such as Timothy McVeigh (who allegedly came to see him prior to the Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City). One of Cooper's early claims was that JFK was shot by the Secret Service agent that was driving Kennedy's car in the motorcade. His shortwave radio show, Hour of the Time, was said to be a big influence on Alex Jones and some in the 'Truth Movement,' Jacobson added.


In the latter half, researcher and investigator, Joe Bullard, talked about the mysteries of Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida and its creator Ed Leedskalnin. In Ray Stoner's book "The Enigma of Coral Castle," he suggested that Ed was possibly an alien, interdimensional being, or time traveler. He did seem to have a strong familiarity with Mars, as he built a 3-ton replica of the Red Planet with a palmetto plant to represent that there was life on Mars at one time, said Bullard. Leedskalnin further said there were canals, and even oceans on Mars at some point in the past.

The 'Bird Bath' on the back of a 30-ton stone, not typically seen by people on tours, is said to be a celestial representation of the Earth, Mars, and Saturn with three concentric circles, Bullard revealed. When Leedskalnin relocated Coral Castle from Florida City to Homestead starting in 1936, some of the blocks were moved on a flatbed truck, and when the driver returned in less than an hour, giant stones had been inexplicably removed without any assistance. The 1978 episode of In Search Of about Coral Castle was what originally inspired Bullard to investigate the fantastic site.
