Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe discussed a baffling polio-like disease affecting children, and the hidden history of NASA Apollo missions with a 72-year-old whistleblower/astronaut. From the fall of 2014 to this fall of 2018, more than 400 young people (average age is 4) have been diagnosed with "acute flaccid myelitis," which starts with flu-like symptoms with fever and aching limbs. The infected child will suddenly not be able to move an arm, leg or head. To date, the paralysis persists after the sickness is gone. She spoke with pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Samuel Dominguez, who reported that researchers are focusing on an enterovirus as the cause. Polio, allegedly eradicated by vaccines, was also an enterovirus, Linda cited. Further info here.
Officially, NASA history timelines state that Apollo 17 was the last astronaut launch with Commander Eugene Cernan, Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt. But according to extraordinary testimony from whistleblower Jon Harold Lavine, whom Linda interviewed over three segments, he was a "secret Apollo astronaut" brought in as a last-minute replacement for one of the Apollo 17 crew. While on the December 1972 moon mission, Lavine says he photographed (with a Hasselblad high-resolution camera) a Grey non-human alien who was just a few feet away from him. The being telepathically conveyed to him that the astronauts should not return to the moon.
In addition, Lavine claimed that he worked on highly classified and hidden launches of Apollo 18, 19, and 20. During the last mission in 1976, they were sent to explore a massive cigar-shaped craft spotted on an earlier NASA visit, he said. Working with astronaut William Rutledge, he said they entered through a hatch in the ship and found long-deceased beings in the cockpit. One was a decayed type of alien grey, and the other a well-preserved "Polynesian"-looking female in a jumpsuit (view images). Lavine, who admits that some of his memories were likely "mind-wiped" by covert government agencies, suggested that the cigar-shaped craft was at least one million years old, or possibly far older.
The Life & Times of Pat Boone
First-hour guest, singer, actor, and TV host Pat Boone, live from the LA studio, chatted about his long-lasting entertainment career. He recalled how Henry Mancini came to see him about recording the song "Moon River" from the film Breakfast at Tiffany's and he passed on it because it wasn't a love song-- it ended up becoming a huge hit for Andy Williams. One of his favorite songs is Exodus, which he wrote the lyrics for, and has become a beloved anthem in Israel. George's mother phoned in to ask Boone which he prefers-- acting or singing. He replied that he considers them very similar, and that singing is a form of acting.
