It was an interesting and busy week. Now I am back and ready to get going. There are a few housekeeping things first.
You will notice that the show has switched to SOUNDCLOUD for the audio player. If you download the show via your podcast app, nothing should change. If it does, let me know (HERE) and I will see what went wrong. I believe that this move will give us better flexibility and reporting.
Next up, I was bemused by the Hal Turner Show’s faux outrage over how few people were “supporting” his show. I said this the other day and I say it again now, if you would like to support the show, I am fine with that. I have both Patreon and PayPal links available to assist you. But it will NEVER be a focal point and certainly not a hostage demand. There will NEVER be a charge of any kind to listen to this show or the Podcast 99 Network.

It’s no big secret that I have a passion for ancient Egyptian history. I have long dreamed of standing before the Sphinx and asking him my question. and as much as I enjoy the history, there remains the eternal argument – how did they build all of this. The answer is simple: one brick at a time.

In the core of our cells lies the same genetic code that has existed since life began. Every living thing shares its mathematical alphabet. As much as you might dislike it, it’s still a fact that you cannot change.
So why is there so much fracas over who is what?
Like so many things, it’s less about the truth and more about the perception.
Watching the Korean handshake was surreal. Frankly, I am still unsure of what to believe. Every instinct in my Cold War blood screams that it’s a trick. But… at the same time, what if it isn’t. What if I have grown so old, so inflexible, that I have outlived my usefulness? Would that constitute a joke? Read the rest of this entry →
