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 564 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.”
In the first half, numerologist Glynis McCantsdiscussed how 2013 - the year of "6," has been unfolding, and what we can expect in 2014. A number of couples chose today's date 11-12-13 to get married. The date has a "5" aspect, which could be an indicator that some drama lies ahead for them, and that wouldn't be ideal for many couples, she noted. 2013 has been a year focused on family, and in particular it's been a year where people who were kidnapped or estranged from their families have been reunited, she said. The numbers for December 2013 are lining up nicely, with several positive days for people with different Life Path numbers-- so it could be an ideal month to entertain, she suggested.
She cited an interesting numerology pattern that connects John F. Kennedy, John F. Kennedy Jr., Marilyn Monroe, and Heath Ledger. They were all "7's," she said, which contributes to a kind of fascination about them, even long after they've died. 2014, a "7" year, looks to be a time when Mother Nature will act out more than usual, said McCants, who advised people to be prepared and have emergency packs. In the celebrity world, Miley Cyrus' chart indicates that she could end up in rehab in 2014, Glynis predicted.
In the latter half, James Fallon, an award-winning neuroscientist at the University of California, Irvine, told about his shocking discovery that his brainscan perfectly matched a pattern he’d found in the brains of serial killers. Specifically, the pattern shows a lesion-type area in the limbic system, which involves emotional regulation and empathy. While a person with this pattern wouldn't necessarily be a psychopath, they would typically show impulsivity, and unusual or poorly modulated emotions, he explained. For Fallon, this played out as hypomania, thrill-seeking, and risk taking behaviors, though he always felt he could regulate his behavior, and not act out on the most negative impulses.
Intriguingly, he argued that some of the US presidents such as FDR, JFK, and Reagan scored high in psychopathic traits that actually can be desirable to have in a leadership position, such as high social energy, fearlessness, and dominance. About 1-2% of people have a degree of psychopathy, with about 10% of the population showing borderline traits. When this plays out as violence, these people often end up in jail, though some of the smarter psychopaths, such as certain serial killers, are able to hide their behaviors and attitudes, and evade capture, Fallon detailed. Some killers go through long cycles in which they don't act out, but when violent urges build up they can suddenly strike, he noted.
Author and hospice volunteer, Dannion Brinkley, appeared during all four hours in this special Veterans Day show. In the first half, he addressed many of the challenges that Veterans face, and in the latter half, he talked about his life-changing NDEs, and prophetic visions that came out of them. Among the problems veterans face is unemployment-- almost two million servicemen and women are looking for work, with 20,000 new vets being added to the job market each month, and this is complicated by the fact that many of them have PTSD, he noted.
"The next big crisis is suicide. Every 65 minutes a veteran commits suicide in the United States of America, 22 a day," Brinkley lamented, adding that the list includes active duty soldiers, as well retired ones who feel neglected and alone. The over-prescribing of pharmaceuticals is also an issue-- "the average 62 year old veteran has 21 scrips, and the average 22 year old has 11 (prescriptions)," he cited. Brinkley was joined by several volunteers, such as Air Force Master Sergeant Bill Hatfield, who work with him at The Twilight Brigade, an end-of-life care community that operates as an independent agency within VA hospitals and hospice care facilities across America.
Brinkley recalled being hit by lightning in 1975, and during the time he was clinically dead for 28 minutes, he underwent a Near Death Experience (NDE), which included a panoramic life review and a visit to wondrous "crystal cities." There, he encountered 13 beings who were radiating light and presenting him with visions of possible future events. He shared these accounts with NDE researcher Raymond Moody, who at the time was a medical student at the hospital where Brinkley was recuperating. One of his accurate visions was the breakdown of the Soviet Union, and he also saw the Fukushima nuclear disaster though at the time he interpreted it as taking place in Norway. The next year and a half is an important decision making period in which people will either "wake up or sell out," he said, warning that in one of the NDE visions, he saw people taking chip implants at a church in Wyoming.
In the first half of the program, John B. Wells welcomed Dr. Paul Moller, who has received 43 patents including the first U.S. patent on a fundamentally new form of aircraft, known as the Skycar. They were joined by Ed De Reyes, chief pilot for the Skycar test flight program. Moller attributed the inspiration for the Skycar to his days growing up in rural Canada and being captivated the versatile mobility of the hummingbird. He explained that the Skycar is not a car which becomes an airplane and, instead, is more of "an airplane that has mobility on the ground." To that end, he envisions future Skycar owners driving the vehicle to a vertiport and then flying to "almost anywhere." Moller also suggested that, as the vehicle gets further recognized by the FAA, the legal requirement to fly a Skycar will eventually become merely a pilot's certificate rather than a license, which will drastically reduce costs for consumers.
Having recently gotten FAA certification to begin untethered, manned flights, Skycar test pilot De Reyes expressed hope that these tests will confirm the capabilities and safety of the craft. Additionally, Moller noted that, in light of the historic nature of vehicle's first manned flight, the Smithsonian Institute has actually asked to receive the Skycar once these initial tests have been completed. Although he will make history as the first untethered pilot of a Skycar, De Reyes modestly likened his role to that of Marty McFly in the Back to the Future films, in that much of the controls of the vehicle are heavily guided by on-board computers. As such, Moller noted that, ultimately, there is nothing technological about the Skycar "that would limit this to be in the hands of almost anybody."
During the third hour, libertarian activist Adam Kokesh discussed his recent release from prison and provided an update on his legal case. Kokesh, who was arrested after he posted a video of himself loading a shotgun at the Freedom Plaza in Washington D.C., described his current legal status as "a delicate situation," since he has pled guilty to charges in D.C. and is due to be sentenced in January, while also still facing charges in Virginia. "I'm taking responsibility for my actions," he declared, but observed that the goal of his protest, to "challenge the way people think about government," was a success. Kokesh mused that "any kind of civil disobedience has consequences or it wouldn't be civil disobedience" and called the decision to plead guilty the "hardest decision I ever had to make in my life."
The final hour of the program was devoted to Open Lines.
