The Destruction of American Women

September 5, 2000

On our September 3rd show, we talked with Janet Hull, the author of Sweet Poison, about the dangers of artificial sweetners, particulary aspartame. During the show, I noticed that many of our calls and e-mails came from dieters, mostly women, who were trying to lose weight by drinking diet sodas.

It seems possible that aspartame could be behind many of the mysterious disorders that affect women today, such as fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, PMS and MS. The evidence is mostly anecdotal, but there is a lot of it and it appears to be compelling.

Possible Chupacabra Skeleton Found in Nicaragua

September 1, 2000

El Nuevo Diario – Scientists in Nicaragua report that they have located a skeleton of an animal that is apparently a strange mix of dog breeds, that was associated with the killing of sheep by exsanguination in the area of the small village of Tolupa. The animal was shot by local farmers after a heavy death toll among sheep in the area was reported. The creature fits the habits and, to a degree, the appearance of the legendary Chupacabra, or Goat Sucker, that has been reported from Puerto Rico to Texas in recent years.

Pole Melt No Big Deal, Scientists Say

August 29, 2000

Climatologist Dr. Mark Serreze at the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, has announced that the recent appearance of open water at the North Pole “is nothing to be necessarily alarmed about.” He continued, “we have no clear evidence at this point that this is related to global climate change.” He stated that open water at the North Pole is a commonplace occurrence, but the only earlier satellite data showing the phenomenon was from July of 2000, a month earlier than the event reported recently.

Crop Circles-Missing the Miracle

August 28, 2000

Whitley and I have been so busy this past year writing books, thinking up ideas for movies and TV, and working to make Dreamland a success, that we usually work all weekend and we haven’t even considered taking a vacation. So on the August 27 Dreamland, when Michael Glickman invited Americans to come to England and join the crop circle researchers because they need fresh minds in the field, I instantly began to daydream.

The Reason for the Secrecy

August 25, 2000

From the first, the UFO question has been shrouded in secrecy. Some blame the US government for this, and that isn’t wrong. But it is also true that whatever is behind this phenomenon is also extremely secretive and careful. However, a close examination of the phenomenon reveals that there has been a slow, steady process of accumulation of experience in our culture, that has led more and more people to believe that UFOs are somehow real.

This belief, which used to mark a person as mentally suspect, is now considered perfectly acceptable and ordinary. At the same time, UFO encounters are becoming more intimate and more complex.

Strong Storms In Northern England

August 21, 2000

Private reports from the North of England indicate that snow accompanied heavy thunderstorms and a possible tornado earlier today, surprising people in York and Hull, who were dressed in summer clothing. The British Meteorological Bureau issued a severe weather alert for the area, but as yet the snowfall, which was estimated at four inches, has not been officially recorded.

The Met’s Severe Weather Warning

ISSUED BY THE MET OFFICE MONDAY 0830 Slow moving and heavy thunderstorms will affect eastern and northern England, Northern Ireland and southern and central Scotland this afternoon. Some hail is also likely. Localised flooding is expected, along with dangerous driving conditions. Valid until 2000 today

The North Pole is Melting

August 20, 2000

On Saturday, August 19, 2000, the New York Times reported that the North Pole is melting. “The thick ice that has for ages covered the Arctic Ocean at the pole has turned to water, recent visitors there reported yesterday.” For the first time in fifty million years, there is open water at the very top of the world. “It was totally unexepcted,” said oceanographer Dr. James McCarthy, the co-leader of a group working for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change. Dr. McCarthy was a lecturer aboard a Russian icebreaker that takes tourists to the North Pole during the summer, normally breaking through six to nine feet of ice. For the first time in the ten years the ship has been making the voyage, according to the captain, it has encountered water instead of ice at the North Pole.read more

Western Fires Out Of Control

As persistent heavy rains and flooding dogged the eastern United States, wildfires raged out of control in the west. As of Friday, August 20, there were 85 major fires burning across the region, with over a million acres burning. Eleven new fires started on Saturday, August 21. Interior Secretary Bruce Babbit said that the fires are likely to get worse, and high winds predicted over the weekend seemed to confirm this. Babbit said that every available fire crew supervisor is already on the job, including some from as far away as Australia and New Zealand. Despite this, 500 more troops are being rushed into the area, even though there are no supervisors available to manage their efforts.

Babbit stated that firefighters have “a blank check” to draw on the US Treasury.

How To Choose A Candidate

August 18, 2000

While listening to the Republican and Democratic conventions, I remembered this wonderful tale by Lame Deer that I found in a book on dogs. I loved it so much that I copied it into my computer, and I think it’s worth reading now, with regard to our upcoming Presidential election. “We don’t think much of the white man’s elections. Whoever wins, we Indians always lose. Well, we have a little story about elections.”

“Once, a long time ago, the dogs were trying to elect a president. One of them said, “I nominate the bulldog for president. He’s strong and can fight.” “But he can’t run,” said another dog. “What good is a fighter who can’t run? He won’t catch anybody.”

New Leir Implant Tests

August 8, 2000

IMPLANT TESTING IN SAN ANTONIO

We interviewed Dr. Roger Leir on Dreamland February 13 with Tim Cullen, whose implant he removed on February 5th. This turned out to be one of four identical cantaloupe seed-shaped implants he has removed from patients so far. Raising money for the surgery was tough enough next he had to figure out how to raise the money to get the implant, as well as the tissue surrounding it, tested.

Greg Avery and Japanese TV came to the rescue. Greg, a lawyer who is the head of Louisiana Mufon, flew himself and Roger to San Antonio for the testing. He also wined and dined the Striebers, so we all had a great time.

Cropcircle Update: Silbury Hill

August 2, 2000

Michael Glickman – Reprinted by permission of SC Magazine, the prehistoric manmade mound in the middle of crop circle country in the U.K. It seems appropriate to record the circumstances, or at least that part of the history which we know.

An American couple visiting the area climbed the Hill on the afternoon of May 29. Scrambling to the top, they found an apparently bottomless hole, several feet in diameter, right at the center of the flat circular area. They had no way of knowing that it had only just appeared. They were bemused by yet another example of English eccentricity: leaving a dangerous pit, without even a handrail, on top of a national monument.

Forest Fires Around the World: US Calls Out the Marines

The summer of 2000 will shape up to be the worst for forest and brush fires worldwide since data began to be recorded. Already in the US, it is the worst since 1988. As hundreds of fires remained out of control across the west and more are erupting every day, the US is attempting to support exhausted firefighters with Marines. The 3rd Battalion 16th Field Artillery from Ft. Hood, Texas, will arrive in Boise today and be transported to the a nearby fire area. A second battalion has been ordered from the Marines at Camp Pendleton, California. Their training will begin on Friday, August 4. Dry lightning–from thunderstorms that do not drop rain–is blamed for most of the fires. For the latest government situation report: hundreds of forest fires erupted across the parched region.read more

Contrails Sweep Stuns Australia’s Gold Coast

August 1, 2000

George Filer is the editor of the highly respected UFO chronicle Filer’s Files. He has been involved in UFO research for twenty years and has over 5,000 flying hours with the Air Force. In Filer’s Files #30, he discusses a personal contrail sighting on July 9, 2000 that has left him extremely uneasy. He also reports on Louisiana MUFON Director Greg Avery’s astonishing presentation on his own contrail observations at the recent MUFON national convention in St. Louis. (Avery will be appearing on Dreamland’s upcoming contrails special.)

In addition there is an incredible report of a gigantic contrail event in Australia that was so extensive and so extremely unusual that people stopped their cars on highways to observe it.

Dalai Lama Excluded From UN Peace Summit

July 31, 2000

Alone among world religious leaders, the Dalai Lama has been excluded from the UN Millennium Peace Summit, despite being the winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace prize.

Pressure from the Chinese has forced this exclusion and as usual, the U.S. hasn’t protested. These days, our government seems to be run by people whose main interest is trading with the Chinese, to the exclusion of any and all moral concerns. When I look at our leading presidential candidates, I know this will only get worse in the future.

For fifty years after World War II, we supported one terrible dictatorship after another, in order to stop the spread of Communism. Latin America is just now beginning to recover from this policy. Africa may not make it.

Another Crop Circle Appears That is Beyond Our Ability to Hoax

July 30, 2000

This crop circle appeared on July 22nd in Avebury Trusloe near Avebury, Wiltshire on July 22nd. This phenomenally complex and beautiful formation joins a number of others that have appeared this season that are so intricately constructed that they would seem beyond the skill of even the most spectacular hoaxer, and impossible to create without continuous observation from above. The crop circle makers are creating an event in the fields of England that appears to be separating interested parties into two camps: those who accept that they are a genuine mystery; and those who are emotionally unable to face that fact. Science and the media continue to be unable to face the awesome reality that is unfolding before us.

Mad Cow Deaths Increase–Experts Alarmed

July 26, 2000

It now appears that an epidemic of human mad cow disease is in its initial stages in Great Britian. If this is true, experts estimate that as many as 500,000 Britons could die of the disease over the next 30 years. Fourteen Britons have died of the disease this year, and five others are dying of it. “I am worried about this year’s figures,” Dr. Roy Anderson, a zoologist from Oxford who has studied the epidemic, told the London Independent this week. He explained that the disease has a long incubation period, and that cases being seen now were caused by exposure to contaminated beef in the early 1980s. Later, cases start appearing in a trickle, rising slightly each year until the rate of increase become exponential. “That’s what you expect in an epidemic,” Dr. Anderson said.

Phoenix UFO Flap Happening Right Now and You Can Join the Watch!

A red UFO of a type that was christened “Bubba” during the many hundreds of sightings that took place in Gulf Breeze, Florida has appeared five times in recent nights over Phoenix. If you live in the Phoenix area, you can participate in the skywatch and report your observation. To report, call the National UFO Reporting Center at 206-722-3000.

To participate in the skywatch, you need a video camera. Should you see the UFO (it is a bright, extremely red light and it may engage in extraordinary manuevers, emit rings or change colors) tape it preferably using a tripod. Do not use digital zoom, and set your focus on infinity rather than use autofocus. After your sighting, take a wide-angle reference shot from exactly the same position.

Flight 800–The Mystery That Will Not Die

July 25, 2000

Despite a massive effort by the government and its train of media supplicants–CNN, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post and all the usual suspects–the TWA Flight 800 mystery will not die. On July 17, after a news conference staged by relatives and witnesses, ABCNews.com left the media bandwagon and joined the New York Observer, which has been critical of the NTSB investigation from the beginning, in raising questions about the official story. Philip Weiss of the Observer has consistently published articles questioning the official story. On July 12, 1999, he published an article about the so-called “30-knot track,” a radar track of a boat that has never been identified. This boat moved away from directly under Flight 800 at high speed.read more

A World In Chaos

July 22, 2000

The world’s weather is deteriorating much more rapidly than Art Bell and I ever dreamed possible when we were writing the Coming Global Superstorm. At the same time, the media and the government continue to take a wait-and-see posture. Worse, at a time when our world and our country are going to need imaginative and effective leadership, the only people who have any chance at gaining the U.S. Presidency are far from dynamic and will crumble under the pressure that the next few years are going to bring.

Biggest Solar Flare In Ten Years Striking This Weekend

July 15, 2000

The largest solar flare since 1989 erupted on the surface of the sun Friday. The flare was followed by a coronal mass ejection which blasted millions of tons of electrically charged particles and magnetic energy into space. This material is moving toward earth at a speed of three million miles an hour. The blast is expected to trigger strong to severe geomagnetic disturbances this weekend. It is expected that power grids, navigation systems, pipelines, shortwave communications and satellite operations around the world will be affected. Displays of northen lights should be visible around midnight across the entire United States, and dramatically visible in Canada and Europe.
