Hollywood legend and Republican supporter Clint Eastwood told CNBC that Washington gridlock is sending the nation racing towards another contentious debt deadline. "It's almost like they don't give a damn," he said, in a "Squawk Box" interview that aired Friday. The Oscar-winning director who's also known for his tough-guy roles asked rhetorically, "If they don't give a damn, why did they expect anybody else to?" With the deal to avoid the "fiscal cliff" barely in the rearview mirror, President Barack Obama and Republican leaders are on the clock again, scrambling to compromise on a package to replace the already-postponed automatic government spending cuts due to kick-in next month. Eastwood described it as "very disappointing" that so little has been accomplished. "The election's over. We should be moving ahead. The leaders aren't stepping up," and he said, "I think they have to hear from the public out there. And maybe the public is a little lackadaisical." He was thrust into the political spotlight of the 2012 presidential election — first with the "Halftime in America" Super Bowl commercial he did that year for Chrysler; and then over the summer at the Republican National Convention with the now infamous "empty chair" bit.
Civilizations, String Theory, Space Missions and Cosmology
Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku returned to chat with Art Bell about civilizations, string theory, space missions and cosmology. He expressed enthusiasm for the Kepler Mission, a space telescope launching in 2008, that will be capable of detecting Earth-like planets in other solar systems. During its mission, it may reveal as many as 600 planets similar to ours, he noted.
String theory, which posits a vibrating multiverse, has come under criticism in some quarters. While Kaku conceded that it doesn't currently offer much predictive power, he believes the theory needs more time to be considered and validated. For instance, tests by the Large Hadron Collider in 2007 may reveal new information, he said.
Kaku also forecast into the far distant future when our universe will be dying out. At such a time, a Type 3 or 4 civilization (capable of manipulating huge amounts of energy) might construct a massive machine that could make space and time unstable. With an atom smasher the size of a solar system, he hypothesized it might open up a bubble ten light years across, through which our civilization could escape into another universe.
Dr. Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority in theoretical physics and the environment. He holds the Henry Semat Professorship in Theoretical Physics at the City College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He has lectured around the world and his Ph.D. level textbooks are required reading at many of the top physics laboratories. Dr. Kaku graduated from Harvard in 1968, summa cum laude, and number one in his physics class.
He received a Ph.D. from the University. of California at Berkeley Radiation Laboratory in 1972. He held a lectureship at Princeton University in 1973. He then joined the faculty at the City University of New York, where he has been a professor of theoretical physics for 25 years. His goal is to help complete Einstein's dream of a theory of everything, a single equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will unify all the fundamental forces in the universe.
Michio Kaku (加来 道雄 Kaku Michio?, born January 24, 1947) is an American theoretical physicist, the Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics in the City College of New York of City University of New York, a futurist, and a communicator and popularizer of science. He has written several books about physics and related topics; he has made frequent appearances on radio, television, and film; and he writes extensive online blogs and articles. He has written two New York Times Best Sellers, Physics of the Impossible (2008) and Physics of the Future (2011).
Kaku has hosted several TV specials for BBC-TV, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and the Science Channel.
Social policy advocacy
Kaku has publicly stated his concerns over matters including the anthropogenic cause of global warming, nuclear armament, nuclear power and the general misuse of science. He was critical of the Cassini--Huygens space probe because of the 72 pounds (33 kg) of plutonium contained in the craft for use by its radioisotope thermoelectric generator. Conscious of the possibility of casualties if the probe's fuel were dispersed into the environment during a malfunction and crash as the probe was making a 'sling-shot' maneuver around Earth, Kaku publicly criticized NASA's risk assessment. He has also spoken on the dangers of space junk and called for more and better monitoring. Kaku is generally a vigorous supporter of the exploration of outer space, believing that the ultimate destiny of the human race may lie in extrasolar planets; but he is critical of some of the cost-ineffective missions and methods of NASA.
Kaku credits his anti-nuclear war position to programs he heard on the Pacifica Radio network, during his student years in California. It was during this period that he made the decision to turn away from a career developing the next generation of nuclear weapons in association with Edward Teller and focused on research, teaching, writing and media. Kaku joined with others such as Helen Caldicott, Jonathan Schell, Peace Action and was instrumental in building a global anti-nuclear weapons movement that arose in the 1980s, during the administration of U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
Kaku was a board member of Peace Action and on the board of radio station WBAI-FM in New York City where he originated his long-running program, Explorations, that focused on the issues of science, war, peace and the environment.
His remark from an interview in support of SETI, "We could be in the middle of an intergalactic conversation...and we wouldn't even know.", is used in the third Symphony of Science installment "Our Place in the Cosmos".
Art Bell chatted with former Satanist turned Luciferian, Aaron Donahue. Donahue believes Lucifer is the "father of the human race" -- an entity that genetically manipulated mankind from primates. He said a Luciferian's focus is on spiritual and psychological evolution, and blamed angels (which he called "spiritual parasites") for the mess the world is in.
Donahue explained his P.A.N. (Practical Application of Non-historical Data) technique, which he said was a more developed system than traditional remote viewing because it can be used to view future events and find numbers. Using this method, he claims to have hit the California lottery 11 days in a row. Donahue also alleges he was able to manipulate numbers and influence the outcome of the Japanese lottery for 10 days.
Donahue also provided information regarding a time machine controlled by genetically manipulated 'super-children', shared the truth about demons and demonic possession, and revealed the third secret of Fatima. According to Donahue, this secret has to do with the human race making contact with Lucifer in South America.
Aaron C. Donahue is a Luciferian, occultist, psychic, and remote viewer. A natural born psychic, he was born into a family of psychics. As a remote viewer trained by Ed Dames, he is an expert within the field of 'non-historical data.' To prepare for this, he spent three years in total seclusion, remote viewing pi. As a consequence thereof, he has developed the ability to accurately remote view numbers, a skill that has allowed him to successfully and consistently win the lottery. His current ground-breaking work is focused upon the study and manipulation of particular numerical trends within specific world markets. Aaron is a certified remote viewing instructor who has recently appeared on TV Asahi in Japan and the Sci Fi Channel In Search Of series. He will also be appearing briefly within the new movie Suspect Zero staring Sir Ben Kingsley, Aaron Eckhart, and Carrie Ann Moss of the Matrix.
Lucifer (pron.: /ˈluːsɪfər/ or /ˈljuːsɪfər/) is the King James Version rendering of the Hebrew word הֵילֵל in Isaiah 14:12. This word, transliterated hêlēl or heylel, occurs only once in the Hebrew Bible and according to the KJV-influenced Strong's Concordance means "shining one, morning star, Lucifer". The word Lucifer is taken from the Latin Vulgate, which translates הֵילֵל as lucifer, meaning "the morning star, the planet Venus" (or, as an adjective, "light-bringing"). The Septuagint renders הֵילֵל in Greek as ἑωσφόρος (heōsphoros), a name, literally "bringer of dawn", for the morning star. Kaufmann Kohler says that the Greek Septuagint translation is "Phosphoros".
Before the rise of Christianity, the pseudepigrapha of Enochic Judaism, the form of Judaism witnessed to in 1 Enoch and 2 Enoch, which enjoyed much popularity during the Second Temple period, gave Satan an expanded role. They interpreted Isaiah 14:12-15 as applicable to Satan, and presented him as a fallen angel cast out of Heaven. Christian tradition, influenced by this presentation, came to use the Latin word for "morning star", lucifer, as a proper name ("Lucifer") for Satan as he was before his fall. As a result, "Lucifer has become a by-word for Satan in the Church and in popular literature",as in Dante Alighieri's Inferno and John Milton's Paradise Lost.
Translation of הֵילֵל as "Lucifer", as in the King James Version, has been abandoned in modern English translations of Isaiah 14:12. Present-day translations have "morning star" (New International Version, New Century Version, New American Standard Bible, Good News Translation, Holman Christian Standard Bible, Contemporary English Version, Common English Bible, Complete Jewish Bible), "daystar" (New Jerusalem Bible, English Standard Version, The Message), "shining one" (New Life Version) or "shining star" (New Living Translation).
This development has been decried not only by adherents of the King James Only movement, but also by others, who hold that the King James Version is correct and that Isaiah 14:12 refers to Satan under the name of "Lucifer", or who hold that the reference to Satan is preeminent
The Looting of America
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Les Leopold, Joseph P. Farrell
Director of two non-profits, Les Leopold discussed how Wall Street's casino-like practices which caused the first meltdown are back, and nothing has been done to protect U.S. taxpayers from another crash and bailout.
This documentary shows who and what the Knights of Malta are and their objectives. Links to the Knights Templar and other secret societies are noted which focus on Rome as the great controler. This is an evil organization that is assisting in the New World Order. See the Total Onslaught videos for more information on their inclusion into the big picture.
UFO researcher and student of ancient manuscripts, Lynn Marzulli, shared his theories on how current events in the Middle East and Europe are fulfilling biblical prophecy for cataclysm.
Marzulli set the stage by reading a passage about an Iranian missile attack against Israel from his book, The Revealing. Marzulli believes comments and actions made by the President of Iran are leading up to a nuclear exchange between Iran and Israel in fulfillment of a 2,700 year old prophecy from Ezekiel. Syria may also play a role in the coming catastrophe, he said.
Marzulli also touched on other topics including the hybridization program of fallen angels (inner-dimensional beings), who he said fathered the Nephilim, as well as Nazi occultism and the "Luciferic Sacrifice" of the Jews during the holocaust, which Marzulli believes cracked open a barrier and let the "ancient ones" back through -- possibly explaining the rise in UFO sightings and abductions since World War II.
L. A. Marzulli is the author of the Nephilim Trilogy. The Nephilim Trilogy made the CBA best sellers list and continues to thrill readers a decade after the first book in the series was published. Marzulli received an honorary doctorate from Pacific International University for his work on the Nephilim Trilogy. Marzulli is also the author of the non-fiction work, Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural. The book packs a hard hitting expose of how the current political landscape may bring about ancient Biblical prophecies, which then may trigger supernatural events that are foretold in the book of Daniel and Revelation.
His latest offering, The Alien Interviews, features 17 personal, intense interviews with people who have been directly involved with the UFO phenomena. The book was written for the skeptic with various world-views presented as to what this phenomena may be. He has also teamed up with film producer Richard Shaw to create the Watchers DVD series. Marzulli has lectured on his exhaustive research at conferences and churches, as well as made appearances and interviews on numerous national radio and television programs.
Ezekiel (pron.: /ɨˈziːki.əl/; Hebrew: יְחֶזְקֵאל, Y'ḥez'qel, Hebrew pronunciation: [jəħezˈqel]), Arabic:حزقيال Hazqiyal, 'God will strengthen' (from חזק, ḥazaq, [ħaˈzaq], literally 'to fasten upon,' figuratively 'strong,' and אל, el, [ʔel], literally 'God', and so figuratively 'The Almighty') is the central protagonist of the Book of Ezekiel in the Hebrew Bible.
In Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Baha'i Faith, Ezekiel is acknowledged as a Hebrew prophet. In Judaism and Christianity, he is also viewed as the author of the Book of Ezekiel that reveals prophecies regarding the destruction of Jerusalem and the Millennia Temple visions, or the Third Temple
A fallen angel is a wicked or rebellious angel. The term is found neither in the Hebrew Bible nor the Deuterocanonical Books nor the New Testament. Nonetheless, biblical commentators often use fallen angel to describe angels who sinned or angels cast down to the earth from the War in Heaven, Satan, demons, or certain Watchers.
Mention of angels who descended to Mount Hermon, (not "fell") to earth is found in the Book of Enoch, which the Ethiopian Orthodox Church and Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church accept as canonical, as well as in various pseudepigrapha.
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Paul Connett
Paul Connett, Executive Director of the Fluoride Action Network, joined Ian to discuss the truth about fluoride and how this toxic chemical has no real health benefits whatsoever.
Dr. Paul Connett is a full and tenured professor of chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, where he has taught for 15 years. He obtained his undergraduate degree in natural sciences from Cambridge University and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College in the US. For the past 14 years he has researched waste management issues with a special emphasis on the dangers posed by incineration and the safer and more sustainable non-burn alternatives. Dr. Connett has researched fluoride over the last few years and has produced Fluoride: A Statement of Concern The official, "The Case Against Fluoride" book launching presentation at Whole Foods (Cherry Creek) in Denver, CO on Oct. 9th 2010 with co-author Paul Connett, PhD. This incredibly enlightening presentation outlines the true dangers of water fluoridation and it's toxic effects. On the eve of the new millennium, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), listed water fluoridation as one of the twentieth-century's 10 greatest public-health achievements. Yet according to the authors of this painstakingly researched expose of fluoridation's overall ineffectiveness and toxicity, endorsements such as these from the CDC and other health organizations are motivated more by face-saving politics than credible research. Fluoridation advocates who have previously branded detractors as conspiracy theorists and shills for junk science will be hard pressed to debunk the hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and sound scientific reasoning presented here. In demonstrating fluoridation's ineffectiveness, Dr. Paul Connett cites exhaustive evidence proving fluorides only benefits are topical, as in tooth brushing, as opposed to swallowing. But the case against fluorides alleged safety, even in small doses, is more alarming, with multiple studies showing fluorides probable complicity in lowered intelligence scores, thyroid dysfunction, hip fractures, and the ominously rising incidence of osteosarcoma in boys. The authors academic, hyperbole-free writing style serves them well in marshaling a series of facts that, all by themselves, expose fluoridation as a false panacea. It remains to be seen, however, whether the public-health community will give this landmark work due credit or continue to rubber stamp an outdated policy that, like bloodletting and trepanation, properly belongs on the scrap heap of sham medical interventions.
Laurence Kotlikoff: Well, we economists look at all the bills the government has to pay, and in the US case we have enormous bills that have been kept off the books. They’re not the official debts, but they are very real. For example, paying me my social security benefits, my old-age pension – that’s a real obligation. It’s not part of the official government debt, but it’s very important because there are 78 million baby boomers who’re going to get their social security payments, and, in addition, medical payments from the government. If you look at all those payments, they are about $3 trillion a year. So we have these huge bills, nobody has thought about paying for them, and Congress and the presidents over the years have just focused on official debt, and basically have not told the public about these big bills.
Host: George Noory
Guests: Maurice Cotterell
Author Maurice Cotterell shared his knowledge of ancient encoded secrets and the Holy Grail. He also traced how Sun-worshipping civilizations such as the Mayas of Mexico and the Viracochas of South America experienced reincarnations of the "son of God."
Cotterell said he is positive that theCeltic cup known as the Ardagh Chalice (kept in the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin) is the Holy Grail and outlined how it was buried with Joseph of Arimathaea and then discovered by King Arthur in the 5th century. It wasArthur who engraved the names of the 12 disciples on it along with two dragons, claimed Cotterell, who noted the same dragon marks are carved into the Amazing Lid of Palenque from the resting place of Lord Pacal of the Maya (whom he believes to be the reincarnation of Jesus).
Arthur broke the code of the Tara Brooch, a sister artifact to the Chalice, which led to his famed pulling of the sword and subsequent realization that he'd found the Holy Grail, Cotterell explained.
