|Host:||John B. Wells|
|Guests:||Paul Guercio, George Hart|
Futurist Paul Guercio and physicist George Hart of the Merlin Project joined John B. Wells to discuss their software-based forecasting technology and latest Timetraks predictions. Hart described their system as a "seismograph of what the future will look like for individuals, for countries, for events," based on predictive time patterns recognized by numerous ancient civilizations. If time follows these patterns, then knowing where one is in time provides a unique opportunity to determine how to approach the future, Guercio added, pointing out that their software does not specify WHAT is going to happen but WHEN a major change will occur in time and for how long.
Some countries and cultures on the planet still think in terms of the significance and timing of events, such as North Korea, Hart continued, noting the recent celebration of former leader Kim Il Sung's 100th birthday and its correlation to the appointments of Kim Jong Un, grandson of Il Sung. The situation in North Korea is very serious and Kim Jong Un's chart takes off this year and continues until the year 2020, he cautioned. According to Guercio, the country and its defiant ruler are at a transition spot where it may be possible to manipulate the situation to favorable ends for the United States. Hart suggested President Obama make and overture to Kim Jong Un, approaching him with respect and honor, and speaking to their shared interests.
The two commented on the woeful state of the American economy. Hart criticized Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernake's seeming overuse of quantitative easing, proposing that it has only helped make the 1 percent even wealthier at the expense of the other 99 percent. Guercio disapproved of the Obama administration’s focus on the green economy and kowtowing to environmental concerns, instead of embracing an energy future built on the nation's rich fossil fuel resources. "At some point this is going to pop and that may be soon," Hart predicted. He also talked about the Bitcoin digital currency and how it can bypass banks, taxation and remaining largely anonymous, as well as the Japanese currency war against the U.S. dollar. Currency wars often become shooting wars, Hart warned.

|Guests:||David Weatherly, Open Lines|
In the first half of the program, George Noory was joined by paranormal investigator David Weatherly, who talked about his fascinating work on the Black Eyed Children phenomenon. A typical encounter with these unusual beings begins with a long persistent knock on the door, Weatherly disclosed, noting that they never use a doorbell. When victims answer they find one to three plainly dressed children, aged 10 to 13 with unnaturally pale skin, standing with their heads facing down, he said. Victims describe a sense of uneasiness at the initial encounter, Weatherly explained, adding that this feeling quickly turns to nervousness as the children express their desire to be invited into the house. At some point the unwelcomed guests look up to reveal their solid black eyes, similar to those seen in depictions of Gray aliens, which induces outright fear and panic in the victim, he reported.
"It seems as if the whole goal of these encounters is to create this high level of fear in the victim," Weatherly continued. He speculated that these sinister children could be demonic entities or alien hybrids which feed off emotional distress, since they simply vanish after their encounters. Some victims report smelling a foul odor, akin to sulfur or something rotten, in the presence of the Black Eyed Children, Weatherly revealed. Most people do not let them in but some have touched or been touched by these strange beings. Almost immediately afterward the victims report illness, bad luck, or deaths in their family, he said, pointing out that the children may foreshadow unfortunate events or be the cause of it themselves. Weatherly shared the case of a 10-year-old boy who invited a Black Eyed Child into his mother's car, became ill, and could not be treated because his symptoms continually changed. He also mentioned accounts in which witnesses describe seeing the eyes of someone they know turn solid black.
The remainder of the show featured Open Lines, with a special hotline in the final hour for callers whose lives were saved by someone or something. Steve in Lost Hills, California, recalled when he was driving his truck on an icy road and received a vision that he should "hit the red car." According to Steve, he came over a rise, saw a red car sliding around, aimed for it, and not only avoided it but also escaped a larger accident. Chris from Chicago told George about the time he was shoveling snow after a blizzard and fell backwards into a snow bank. According to Chris, he was buried so deeply by snow that only his hand was sticking out and visible. Luckily a passerby saw his glove and pulled him out, he said. Angelica in Northridge California, shared how a teacher helped save her from crippling depression by encouraging her to join her school's track team. "It literally changed my life and gave me life," she confessed.
Fisherman Isaac Brumaghim may need a bigger boat after a 400-to-500 pound tiger shark nearly leaped into his kayak as he was reeling in a tuna. Brumaghim was fishing about two miles from the shore of Hawaii, when the hungry 10-ft carnivore went after his catch. Footage captured by a camera mounted on the kayak can be seen at The Huffington Post.

|Guests:||Robert Piccioni, Sal Polisi|
In the first half, former member of the Columbo crime family, Sal Polisi, shared updates on organized crime, and talked about how he reinvented his life. Working with a TV production company, Polisi said he'll be covering the upcoming Whitey Bulger trial in Boston. Bulger, 83, a notorious gangster, is charged in a federal racketeering case, and for participating in 19 murders from the 1970s and 80s. When Bulger was a fugitive, the FBI said he served as a longtime informant. Polisi also acted as an FBI informant and went into the witness protection program.
In recent years the Mob has moved into more sophisticated white collar-type crimes such as computer and credit card frauds, Polisi noted. Perhaps supplanting the Mafia are organizations within different ethnic groups such as the Russians, Colombians, Mexicans, Colombians, and Chinese, who are moving into crime in a serious way, and fighting over turf, he reported. Polisi recalled how back when he was working for the Columbo family in the 1970s, he would travel from NY to Las Vegas casinos, and be given $100,000 in chips to deliberately lose as a kind of money laundering scheme. He also opined that the war on drugs is a failure, and that drugs should be legalized and taxed, and this could also greatly reduce the burden on prisons.
In the latter half, lecturer at UCLA, Dr. Robert Piccioni, discussed the extraordinary odds required to form a universe by chance, and also covered the numerous contributions of Albert Einstein beyond the Theory of Relativity. The fact that there is so much order in our universe is absolutely astonishing-- there are about 20 different major properties of the universe that could have been different, he noted. "Each of these [properties] is like a knob on the oven. You can turn the knob to more or less any value you want, and you'd get a universe that meets all the laws of physics...but none of those universes would be capable of supporting life. Only if the knobs are tuned to almost exactly the right value do you get a universe that has any chance at all of supporting life," he said. Further, the claim that all of life could have happened by random chance is "the most absurd thing that science has ever said," he commented.
Back in his day, many of Einstein's ideas were questionable when he first proposed them. But in today's academic climate, he might not have even gotten them published, Piccioni remarked. Yet Einstein's contributions to physics were so influential, he continued, that the following products and technologies all depend on his discoveries in one way or another: television, CDs, DVDs, GPS, solar cells, computers, telephones, laser printers, nuclear weapons, barcode scanners, digital electronics (plus many others). Einstein lacked certain credentials (he didn't have a PhD) and was turned down by many universities, but without his contributions we could be somewhere between 20-50 years behind in various technologies, and even more in the field of physics, Piccioni pointed out.
On April 11th, a large solar flare erupted-- not as big as an X-class flare, but the most powerful so far of 2013. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the event in detail (pictured). More at Space.com.

|Guests:||Neil Arnold, Bill Spillane|
Folklore researcher Neil Arnold described various urban legends, and what, if any, truth lies behind them. It's amazing how some stories can embed themselves into local communities and then be taken as fact the world over, even though they are completely made up, he commented. The fear factor or scariness of a story can increase its popularity as it's passed around at work or schools, sometimes even leading to panic or hysteria. "We never seem to question the who's, where's, and why's, we're just more interested in the fact that it terrified us-- that's why it sticks in our mind," he remarked.
The scarier legends often concern a 'boogeyman,' and typically involve cars, or people in remote or dark locations, such as the tale of an escaped asylum patient with a hook that haunts lovers lanes. Such stories have a warning aspect, perhaps started by parents, to keep their kids from going to such places, he explained. The legend of the phantom hitchhiker is popular around the world-- a woman is seen standing by the side of the road and given a lift. She suddenly vanishes but leaves behind a purse or personal object, and when the driver goes to her address, they find out that she died some 30 years ago. There are regional variations on the story, he detailed-- in Chicago, she's called Resurrection Mary and hangs out near the cemetery where she's supposedly buried.
A legend from Blue Bell Hill, an ancient village in Kent, England involves motorists hitting a young woman who runs out on the road, but then is no longer there. This tale could relate to the 1916 murder of a girl in a pale dress on this road-- like many such legends it involves a possible ghost sighting, he said. Urban legends have also become a staple of horror films, such as in "When A Stranger Calls," where something innocent like a telephone becomes a conduit for terror. People have reported finding some very bizarre foreign objects in food, as well as creatures, like the 'Kentucky Fried Rat,' and a snake inside a tortilla wrap, he continued. Arnold also spoke about his interest in cryptozoology and the crossover between this field and urban legends.
First hour guest, tax change advocate Bill Spillane spoke on behalf of the 'FairTax' alternative, a national retail sales tax on new purchases that would replace the payroll tax and other taxes. The current income tax allows for Congress and the President to manipulate Americans economically and politically, and further, we end up paying for the underground economy which is $1-2 trillion a year-- because no one pays tax on that income, he pointed out. Congressional representatives aren't motivated to alter the present tax code because the most powerful lobbyists aren't in favor of change, he lamented.
A huge stone structure discovered under the waters of the Sea of Galilee in Israel has archaeologists puzzled. The cone-shaped structure, made of basalt cobbles and boulders, is estimated to weigh around 60,000 tons, and is definitely thought to be man-made. It could date back more than 4,000 years, and was probably built on land before that area was submerged. More here.

|Guests:||Stephan Schwartz, Marilu Henner|
Futurist and researcher Stephan Schwartztalked about developments in the study of consciousness, and how more research is pointing toward its non-locality-- that is, that part of the mind is not limited by space or time. Consciousness could be thought of as primary, the perception of our self, but are we looking at an objective reality or a kind of matrix?, he pondered. A new discipline called neuro-theology studies brain imaging of people like nuns, Sikhs, and Buddhists who are meditating or having spiritual experiences. NDE research is yielding data that suggests there's an eternal aspect of us, and "we are fundamentally beings of consciousness and the physicality we take on...is not the source but the manifestation of that consciousness," he said.
Schwartz proposed that consciousness could be viewed as a matrix of information that we're embedded in, a subset of which is space-time. By using disciplines like remote viewing or healing techniques, we can open ourselves to typically inaccessible areas outside of space-time, he commented. Many don't sense what religion calls the "still small voice"-- the non-local, interconnected part of us, which can be accessed through meditation. Studies have shown that meditation can make the brain more powerful, and lead to greater control of the physical body, and may also reduce PTSD symptoms. In an article he wrote for Explore Journal, Schwartz outlines useful meditation practices.
Discussing his research into reincarnation cases, he noted that people who died unexpectedly seemed to be more likely to come back quickly, as though they were trying to finish something they had started in their abbreviated previous life. In cases where body transplant recipients take on characteristics of their donors, Schwartz speculated that it's not just the organ that passes traits on, but certain non-local information patterns linked to it.
First hour guest, actress Marilu Henner appeared in studio to talk about memory, health, and her life & career. She discussed growing up in Chicago in a house that had a dance studio in the garage, and her years on the popular sitcom Taxi. After her parents died, she became interested in health and nutrition issues, which she wrote about in her book Total Health Makeover. She is also known for her phenomenal memory in which she can recall details from every day of her life, and in her newest book she shares tips on how to enhance memory. Currently, she is appearing on NBC's Celebrity Apprentice, and has just started a new morningradio show.

|Guests:||Robert Young Pelton, Robert Zimmerman|
Author and adventurer Robert Young Peltondiscussed global war trends, his experiences working with private military contractors, as well as geopolitical hot spots. Regarding North Korea, he characterized the country as one of the last holdovers of the Cold War-- still reacting from the Korean War in the 1950s. "The leadership of the country is very similar to Saddam Hussein and some of the older dictatorships, where to stay in power they can do whatever they want-- they don't have anyone to regulate them," he noted. However, North Korea's recent bout of aggression, posturing, and saber-rattling was actually instigated by one of the US' military exercises, not Kim Jong Un, Pelton pointed out.
While American troops are dwindling down in Afghanistan, private contractors are on the increase there, he reported. Many retire from the US military, only to get similar jobs as contractors for more money, he explained. "I was surprised at how many contractors were integrated into the fighting force," non-uniformed civilians performing things like intel gathering, interrogations, training, and servicing of equipment, he remarked. If a quick military action is required such as setting up a drone base, "they use contractors because they can call them up and they can be there with exact skills and then they can send them home and nobody knows about it," Pelton revealed.
The real tinderbox today is the evaporation of the middle class all around the world, he stated. The bedrock of stability is being eroded, and predatory government systems like in Cyprus are preying on its citizens, he said. What we're seeing in the Arab Spring is a predominance of young people who have no future economic prospects, and this is a very dangerous trend, he continued. Afghanistan is experiencing an extraordinary brain drain-- all the young people that worked with Americans because of the aid money, are getting visas to Europe, and "that's what's going to plunge Afghanistan back into the stone age," he warned.
First hour guest, space historian Robert Zimmerman reacted to NASA's announcement that they will not lead efforts for astronauts to return to the moon. Private companies however are likely to spearhead getting humans into orbit, "and eventually the profits from that are going to pay for further exploration, which will get us to the moon, and beyond," he commented. Innovations from companies like SpaceX are reducing costs for launch vehicles such as their Falcon 9 system, which helps to increase their customer base beyond NASA, he added.
Comet ISON, currently a dim speck near the orbit of Jupiter, could put on a spectacular display as it nears the sun. Some astronomers are even saying it could be the 'Comet of the Century,' and recent observations have found that the comet's nucleus is quite large. Check out recent footage of ISON from the University of Narino Observatory.

|Guests:||Dr. Joe Gallenberger, Jerome Corsi|
Clinical psychologist with a deep interest in psychokinesis, Joseph Gallenberger, discussed how we can use psychic energy to effect and change our realities, and create the circumstances we need or want. He spoke about his involvement with the Monroe Institute and their Hemi-Sync technology, an auditory stimulation system which helps to synchronize the two brain hemispheres, and facilitate meditation, relaxation and other beneficial states depending on the frequency settings.
Out of these focused meditative states, Gallenberger discovered he could do healing intention, as well as psychokinesis (PK), such as effecting the outcome of a dice roll. He experimented with his abilities to influence matter at casinos in Las Vegas primarily through dice games, and reported that he was quite successful. "The type of energy we want to build for psychokinesis is wide-open heart, grounded to the earth, in touch with spirit, feeling one with everything, feeling really good," he noted, but most people approach casino games feeling greed and fear, and end up getting the exact opposite of what they want.
Beyond the gaming aspect, the idea of being able to project energy to manifest is very useful in such areas as relationships, finances, and health, he remarked. PK and psychic ability have been scientifically proven such as by studies at Princeton, but mainstream science continues to doubt, "because we don't have the smoking gun, the causal chain-- there is resistance," as well close-minded professional skeptics that have the ear of the media and the government, he commented.
First hour guest, author Jerome Corsi spoke about his new book Bad Samaritans which deals with the ACLU's effort to separate church and state. The organization is determined to remove God from all aspects of American society, "which ends up being a complete perversion of the 1st amendment," he argued. The Founding Fathers spoke of freedom of religion in the Bill of Rights, not freedom from religion, he continued.

|Host:||John B. Wells|
|Guests:||Whitley Strieber, Chuck Bergman|
Joining John B. Wells, author Whitley Strieberdiscussed his own contact experience with "the visitors," the prevalence of these close encounters, and the confirming evidence that has been ignored by the media and scientific communities. "Something is penetrating our lives and we are pretending it doesn't exist, institutionally," he said, noting that in any given week his website receives 15 to 20 such reports. Even though these encounters are widespread there is very little scientific work being done to understand what is really happening, Strieber lamented. He further suggested that the intelligence community is silent on the topic because they do not want to be held accountable for their failure to protect us.
Strieber detailed the work done by Southwest Research Institute's William Mallow, one of the few scientists willing to research alleged alien implants. In one particular case, Mallow received a baffling object from implant removal specialist Dr. Roger Leir. According to Strieber, the curious item emitted a radio signal and, despite being composed of 99% iron, was inexplicably x-ray invisible when placed in a diffraction machine. He also spoke about a strange piece of material sent to Art Bell that was made of layers of bismuth and magnesium foam, his own apparently mobile implant, and the close encounters people have had at his cabin.
In the first hour, retired police officer and psychic medium Chuck Bergman briefly commented on the mysterious death of 9/11 conspiracy author Philip Marshall and last year's tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. Bergman said his psychic investigations are most effective when he is either at the location of the incident or with a family member of the victim. He also described how he communicates with the dead to solve crimes as well as provided details from his work on a missing person's case that turned out to be a murder.
A South African adventurer successfully flew across the Atlantic Ocean, from Robben Island to Cape Town, using only giant helium-filled balloons. Matt Silver-Vallance, 37, undertook the dangerous 3.7 mile crossing over shark-infested waters to raise money for the Nelson Mandela children's hospital. Silver-Vallance inflated a total of 160 balloons for the stunt but popped 35 of them with a makeshift spear in order to control his altitude. More at The Telegraph.

|Guests:||Jim Steinmeyer, Open Lines|
In the first half of Friday's show, George Noory welcomed magic historian and illusion designerJim Steinmeyer for a discussion on Dracula and vampires. Steinmeyer recalled reading Bram Stoker's Dracula for the first time and the profound impact it had on him. His most recent work, Who Was Dracula: Bram Stoker's Trail of Blood, is about Stoker and how Dracula was composed. Steinmeyer said several personalities influenced the novel, including Henry Irving (Stoker's boss), Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde and Jack the Ripper. As a side note, he suggested that Stoker may have known Ripper suspect, Francis Tumblety.
A collection of Stoker's notes reveal the books he used for research, Steinmeyer continued, noting that the author likely knew little about the bloodthirsty ruler after whom he named his villain. Though there were many stories on the vampire mythos, Stoker can be credited with formalizing the rules for vampires as well as those governing how these creatures are created, he explained. One of the flaws of Dracula is that after defining how one can kill a vampire, the characters do not kill them in that way, Steinmeyer added. He also talked about Bela Lugosi, who is famous for his 1927 portrayal of Dracula. Steinmeyer noted how Lugosi's appearance was markedly different from Dracula in the novel and how the character is continually reinvented.
During Open Lines, George offered a 'rude' hotline for callers to share their own experiences with disrespectful people. Dan in Orlando, Florida, admitted the day-to-day treatment he receives in his current home city is worse than what he encountered as a law enforcement officer in Indiana. According to Dan, it's one of the worst places to drive in the U.S. and people there do not return his greetings. TJ from Miami expressed his frustration with his lawyer, who allegedly has refused to release funds from a lawsuit he won.
Jared in Lincoln, Nebraska, told George that he noticed extra ribs on his body after losing some weight. Jared said he consulted a medium and discovered that the additional bones were placed there by Gray aliens to 'promote' him. He admitted to being taken by them since childhood. Doug from Oregon revealed how he was approached by a person connected to Osama bin Laden's Hamburg cell prior to 9/11. The man asked for his passport (to slice open and insert another person's photo) and threatened to feed him to pigs if he didn't comply, Doug explained.
Arachnophobes beware. A new species of venomous tarantula has been discovered on the island nation of Sri Lanka, and it's as big as your face. Named Poecilotheria rajaei, the giant spider measures 20 centimeters and packs a venomous punch capable of killing rodents, birds, and snakes. More at Discovery News.
