Professor of Law at Harvard University, Jack Goldsmith is also a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution. He joined George in the first half to discuss his personal interest in the rise and fall of Jimmy Hoffa, the infamous and embattled president of the Teamsters Union in the mid-20th century, and whose disappearance in 1975 has fueled decades of speculation. Goldsmith is the stepson of the man that Hoffa considered his "second son," Charles O’Brien. For many years, O’Brien was implicated in the disappearance of Hoffa because he was suspected of driving the car that took Hoffa to the meeting where he disappeared. Hoffa had just been released from prison when he went missing, and most believe it was because he wanted to regain his presidency of the union, and remove all influence of organized crime, which he had essentially supported before he was imprisoned. Goldsmith said that Hoffa "only wanted one thing in life, and that was to get the union back."
Because of his own suspicions, Goldsmith broke off his relationship with O’Brien when he entered law school. Years later, he reconsidered his position and re-established contact. Since then, Goldsmith has recorded "more than 2000 hours" of conversations with O’Brien, attempting to find out what really happened. He now believes that O’Brien had nothing to do with the crime. Goldsmith said that O’Brien told him that "I don’t know, and I’m glad I don’t know" who killed Hoffa. Goldsmith added that "if he had any evidence to spill, he wouldn’t be alive today." After speaking to a variety of FBI agents over the years who have been looking at the case, Goldsmith said he'd been told they now believe that the killer was "a low-level organized crime figure in the Detroit mob."
In the second half, Dr. Luis Turi revealed how to harness the power of the subconscious mind, and explained how it shapes everything from world events to everyday personal motives and decisions. Turi believes that the subconscious is so powerful that it "gets your heart beating and stops an infection" and can even "alter the atomic structure of your body." He said that the disciplines of psychology and psychiatry have yet to accept these concepts. Turi also described extraterrestrial races he's been in contact with. He's concluded that they affect human behavior both toward the positive and negative, depending on the source. The benevolent race, he continued, is known as the "Draconis," and the evil or negative ones are the "Reptilians." Turi stated that he's been "contacted by the divine and it is speaking through me."
He gave examples from his own life he's made about the power of the subconscious. He recalled that when he was a child, he had a virulent infection in his ears, which only subsided after he left his parents’ home, where they raised their voices and fought constantly. He realized that his subconscious was telling him he didn’t want to hear them fighting, and he was only able to heal after he went to live with his grandmother "who never raised her voice." Turi also made predictions for this year and the next based on his study of astrology, saying that for the rest of 2019, political events and relationships will "go downhill," and that there will be a "full restructure" of many groups and institutions in 2020. He also said that he is expecting "a lot of fire" and "a lot of wildlife to disappear."
