In the first half, analyst Craig B. Hulet offered commentary on world conflicts, and how corporations dominate the global economy and eclipse the power of the nation-states. Speaking of the situation in Afghanistan, he declared that 2019 was the deadliest year yet with the Taliban killing many people through bombs, assassinations, and gunfights. Geologically mapped during the George W. Bush administration, it was determined that Afghanistan contained $3.7 trillion in resources and rare minerals, and that's why the US remains there, Hulet asserted. While there is excessive force and violence in Iran, it's hardly the worst in the region, he reported. People might be surprised at the number of beheadings, stonings, and crucifixions (in the hundreds, that we know of) done each year in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
"We are living with a corporate empire," he continued, "and national sovereignty in the world is gone," except for Russia and China. He traced our current era back to the end of WWII, when FDR had planned to go after the big corporate giants but died before he got the chance. When Truman took over, Hulet remarked, he didn't battle the corporations because, as a businessman, he respected them. Congress has abdicated its authority, he added, passing one of the worst pieces of legislation-- the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It created an absolute windfall for corporations, who now pay little or no taxes, Hulet lamented, and "that's why we have the largest deficit, growing at 30% every year."
The author of nine books on religion and spirituality, Jim Willis, has been an ordained minister for over forty years. In the latter half, he shared his exploration of how to consciously step out of your body and navigate the Quantum Akashic Field. Rather than in just spiritual terms, Willis considers astral travel to also be a kind of science, aligned with recent understandings in quantum physics. In a quantum-based reality, the Akashic Field could be regarded as a multidimensional realm where simultaneous potentials exist, he suggests, and we can gain awareness of this perspective through conscious out-of-body experiences (OBEs).
There are two kinds of OBEs, he explained-- one he referred to as "etheric" travel, where a person remains in our physical reality, and the other involves visiting different dimensions and realities. Etheric travel was explored by the Monroe Institute, and even used to train people as spies, akin to remote viewers, Willis revealed. He believes that we all have out-of-body experiences every night when we sleep, and that our dreams are memories that the intellect interprets from these astral voyages. In the ancient Hindu tradition, they spoke about the great unknown, a place that language cannot describe, and he considers this the equivalent of the Quantum Akashic Field.
