George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program, Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 500 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.
While hosting The Nighthawk, a wildly successful, late-night program on KTRS in St. Louis, Noory was recruited by Premiere Radio Networks to guest host on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell. He became the permanent host of the phenomenally successful over-night program on January 1, 2003, following Bell’s retirement. Since then, Noory’s audience has continued to grow.
Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”
He dates his interest in these matters to a book by Walter Sullivan, We Are Not Alone, that his mother gave him when he was 13. He was hooked.
Author William Engdahl discussed potential new 'energy wars' in the Mediterranean, issues around GMO crops, and how a group of global elite are gaining control over the world's oil, agriculture and currencies. "The essential strategy of the cartel of banks and big oil companies...is to create a myth of energy scarcity...and one of the means to do that is creating these wars," such as by taking countries like Iraq and Iran, which have huge untapped oil reserves, off the market for years, via wars or threats of war, he explained.
For the first time, we are beginning to see 'wars' over natural gas, as the EU increasingly needs it to meet their mandate to reduce their carbon footprint. Israel recently discovered huge reserves of natural gas offshore, and is becoming an energy player for the first time. Greece, Cypress, and Lebanon have also discovered reserves, as well as Qatar, which has been making possible deals with Syria and Iran. "Immediately, you can begin to sense the geopolitical potential for wars in almost every direction," he commented.
GMO agriculture was started by the same interests that control Big Oil, creating monopolies through vertical integration-- "agribusinesses" for 20-30 giant multinational corporations, he detailed. With GMOs, foreign bacteria or elements are spliced into the DNA of soy or corn, and that's releasing something inherently unstable-- it's fraudulent and reductive science, he remarked. A recent long term study in France looked at rats fed a diet of Monsanto GMO corn for two years, and they found an alarming incidence of cancer tumors, organ damage, and early deaths. Monsanto's own studies have never gone beyond 90 days, he noted. Engdahl believes the elite seek to drastically reduce Earth's population, via wars, disease, vaccines, and other methods.
First hour guest, Anne Serling talked about her new book, As I Knew Him; My Dad, Rod Serling, and her memories of growing up with the man behind The Twilight Zone. Though he sometimes butted heads with sponsors and censors, he was often able to slip in ideas about social and moral issues under the radar through his sci-fi storytelling, she explained, adding that he once said "an alien could say what democrats or republicans couldn't." She also spoke about how her father was traumatized by his experiences in WWII, as well as his disappointment with his second series Night Gallery, which he felt didn't have as much to say about important issues like Twilight Zone did.
Hundreds of mysterious metallic orbs have been uncovered buried beneath an ancient pyramid in Mexico City. Archaeologist Jorge Zavala called the objects, which date back 1,800 years, an "unprecedented discovery." More here.
Hypnotherapist, speaker, and founder of Dream-Life Coach Training, Kelly Sullivan Walden, discussed various approaches to dreamwork, and how they can be utilized for benefits in one's waking life. The limbic system in the brain wakes up during dreaming, and tries to work out unresolved matters and events that happened during the day, she explained. There are several misconceptions about dreams-- some people don't dream (it's clinically proven that everyone dreams 3 to 9 dreams every night), that there are bad dreams (even the scariest dreams come in the service of health and healing, she believes), and that dreams are meaningless (many innovations and inventions were instigated from dreams).
During the evening, she featured a number of special guests who presented their unusual and powerful dreams. The first was Claire, a 16-year old, who told of a series of dreams in which she picked a magical vine and was transported to the universe at large. She learned in the dreams that she was a "bridge angel," chosen to help deceased spirits make the transition to the Other Side. Other guests included Kathy, whose dreams saved her life by cluing her in that she had cancer that tests weren't picking up, and Ellin, who had a bizarre dream of alien hybrids taking over the world. Jenny shared a nightmare in which she was asked by a council of elders to kill a young woman, and was able to subsequently reenact the events in a cathartic "dream theatre" where group members played the different dream roles.
Walden suggested that all the different characters in dreams could be looked at as various aspects of ourselves, and this kind of view can be a way to interpret a dream's significance. She outlined a set of steps she called the D.R.E.A.M. Code as a way to get started in working with dreams: Declaration-- of what you want to create in your life; Remembrance-- techniques for remembering dreams (such as not moving your body position when you first wake up), and recording your dreams on paper or with an app like Dreams Cloud; Embodiment-- such as retaining the energy of positive dreams; Activation-- taking some form of action in the waking world based on dream realizations; and Masterminding-- connecting with a group of people to share dreams with.
First hour guest, celebrated author Anne Rice talked about her life, books, and career. She described how her bestseller Interview with a Vampire evolved from a short story, and her fascination with vampires-- they are monsters who are also human; capable of having relate-able feelings yet supernatural beings who live outside of our laws. Her forthcoming book, The Wolves of Midwinter, is a continuation of her new series on man-wolves, featuring a character who kills villains while he's in the wolf state. She also offered advice to writers, suggesting they persevere, and have confidence and belief in their work.
In the first half, space historian Robert Zimmerman discussed space-related topics in the news, such as the recent test flight of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo. Virgin's craft, designed to carry paying space tourists, set a milestone, reaching a maximum altitude of 56,000 ft. It's taken them almost a decade to get to this point, he noted, and they now seem to have an engine that can deliver supersonic speeds. "They're aiming for their first passenger flight for the first quarter of next year, and I don't see any reason why that's not going to happen," he said, adding that the effort should be a profitable enterprise for Virgin Galactic. Virgin has also announced "LauncherOne," a rocket designed to deliver small satellites into orbit.
SpaceX is developing technology in which the first stage of their Falcon 9 rocket can return to the launch pad and be used again instead of being dumped in the ocean, which would help reduce costs, Zimmerman reported. While the Hubble Space Telescope is on its last legs, the newer Kepler telescope (designed to look at exoplanets) could be facing technical problems from failing gyroscopes, he revealed. He also talked about global climate and solar activity. The decrease of sunspots has been correlated with colder weather, and we may be about to enter such a cycle now, he said.
In the latter half, ufologist and editor of Unicus Magazine, Robert Stanley, argued that Middle-Eastern shadow beings called the 'jinn' may be related to terrorism and acts of violence. The legend of the jinn (genie) in a bottle dates back to King Solomon, who was said to have found a way to bind the entities, and get them to do his bidding. They were allegedly instrumental in the building of King Solomon's Temple, he said. According to Middle Eastern lore, everyone has a jinn assigned to them, and the supernatural beings can be benevolent, neutral or evil. Stanley compared the jinn to fallen angels, and noted that in Islam, "Shaitan" (like Satan) commands an army of demons or jinn who tempt humans to sin.
Historically, there are descriptions of jinn-like entities across many different cultures, and it's only in the West that they've been dismissed as fictional, he commented. Stanley characterized their mode of action as like an infection from mental parasites, such as the Archons described in the Book of Enoch, who feed on negative energy. "They're non-physical but they have a physical effect on us through the energies in our body...and they can literally manipulate us into doing things for their benefit," he remarked. More of Stanley's thoughts on this topic are posted here.
