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.
In the first half, author and adventurer Robert Young Pelton discussed his Expedition Konyproject, in which he plans to seek out the fugitive warlord and alleged mass murderer Joseph Kony, who is on the run in the jungles of Africa. Kony, leader of the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes, and the US State Dept. has offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his arrest or conviction. Pelton said his intention is not to kill Kony, but to locate him and then work with the appropriate national and international law enforcement to bring him to justice if possible.
Pelton seeks to combine 'crowdsourcing' (getting a lot of information from a lot of different people around the world to locate Kony) and 'crowdfunding' (small individual contributions viaIndiegogo to sponsor the search). The plan is to launch the expedition in January and continue the search until rainy season begins. Pelton and his team will not be armed, but will travel with security forces as needed. Part of his goal is to understand why Kony has eluded capture for over two decades and to create a crowd sourced method to locate other wanted war criminals.
In the latter half, best-selling author Erich von Daniken spoke about his seminal research into the ancient alien hypothesis. He also addressed his latest work on mysterious underground complexes, geometrically aligned stone circles, and the pyramids of Egypt, and their possible relationship to ancient ET builders. Aliens have visited Earth at least three times in the past, every 3,500 – 4,000 years, he said. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus studied early Egyptian texts, and learned that contacts with the 'gods' may have started as far back as 14,000 years ago, von Daniken noted. He believes the ETs are about 500 years ahead of us in technology, and genetically manipulated early hominids to became homo sapiens.
He cited the mystery of carved rocks on the Mediterranean island of Malta that contain parallel lines running together, which are also seen in other parts of the Mediterranean region. These carvings are at least 10,000 years old, and continue to puzzle archaeologists, he commented. Von Daniken also talked about an ancient temple in Abydos, Egypt which used 70 ton blocks precisely fitting together, a technology that was not repeated by subsequent temple builders at Abydos.

A bizarre asteroid with six comet-like tails has been discovered in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Scientists have never before seen an asteroid like this, which NASA described as looking like a "a rotating lawn sprinkler." More here.
In the first half, expert in the fields of communication and relationships, John Gray PhD., talked about the rise in ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) in both children and adults. Gray said that he, himself, had a form of ADHD, with a kind of hyper-focus that eventually caused him to have an early onset of Parkinson's disease. Related to ADHD, one of the biggest problems in marriages is that men become hyper-focused on their work, and less interested in their relationship, and women become hyper-focused on everyone else's needs, and have a deficiency of focus on their own needs, he explained. Gray said that he cured his ADHD by taking the supplement NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) in the form of undenatured whey protein, which helps to produce more glutathione in the brain.
Minerals are what protect the brain from free radical damage, and he cited lithium orotate as being particularly effective, as well as 2AEP Membrane Complex, a mineral compound which assists in blood sugar balance. He recommended Serrapeptase, an enzyme made from silkworms that treats the cause of inflammations, and is a viable alternative to pain medications. Grey also mentioned the herb berberine, an extract of golden seal, which he said has proven to be as effective as the drug Metformin in treating diabetes, but without the side effects.
In the latter half, lecturer and author Heidi Hollis talked about Shadow People and the Hat Man phenomenon. Many people are dealing with outright attacks from these negative entities and have no one to turn to, she remarked. The beings could originate in another dimension, yet they seem quite familiar with our plane of existence, she noted. They are not the shadows of ghosts-- in fact, they are nothing like that, Hollis said, adding that "they know exactly what they are doing, why they are here, and what their goal is." Many who've had encounters with them feel that their life and soul is in jeopardy, she continued.
To get rid of these beings, "put your ethereal foot down," and access your faith in order to stand your ground, she suggested. It's also helpful to turn on a light, as they seem to prefer manifesting in darkness, and will sometimes dissipate right in front of you, she detailed. The sinister Hat Man, Hollis originally thought was a type of Shadow Person, but has now concluded they're a different kind of being altogether, and have a more solid appearance. She also described her haunting encounter with a huge spider shadow that took up the whole ceiling, and a secret war taking place between aliens and Shadow entities.
