Hour 1: Nick Redfern
Joining Amerika Now during the first hour of the show is internationally renowned bestselling author, lecturer, and cryptozoologist Nick Redfern to discuss his most recent book, Monster Files: A Look Inside Government Secrets and Classified Documents on Bizarre Creatures and Extraordinary Animals.
For the first time, Nick opens long-hidden portals into the mysteries, conspiracies and cover-ups behind secret files in the Pentagon, the Kremlin, the British military and other government entities. He’ll answer questions about whether the Pentagon has an actual Bigfoot body on ice, what the U.S. military is hiding about lake monsters, what the link is between the CIA and the abominable snowman, why there’s a British government file on sea serpents, and what the Russians know about animal ESP.
Nick is one of the world’s most sought-after speakers and media spokespersons on the science of animals whose existence has not been proven (until now) and the existence of animals considered to be extinct. He’s appeared on more than 100 radio and television programs, from the BBC to Fox News, MSNBC and National Geographic.
In his book, Monster Files, Nick lays out the persistent rumors, tales and legends that government agencies around the world have secretly collected, and also reveals a wide variety of hair-raising data on bizarre beasts, amazing animals, and strange creatures. Monsters, creepy creatures, and terrifying beasts really do exist–our governments know all about them–and Nick exposes them.
Nick Redfern works full-time as an author, lecturer and journalist. He writes about a wide range of unsolved mysteries, including Bigfoot, UFOs, the Loch Ness Monster, alien encounters, and government conspiracies. A regular contributor to UFO Magazine, Fate and Fortean Times, Nick is the author of The Pyramids and the Pentagon, Keep Out!

Hour 2: Dr. Mark Thornton
Dr. Mark Thornton, an American economist and Senior Fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, rejoins Amerika Now during the second hour to discuss how prohibition caused the “greatness of Gatsby.”
The current adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is playing in movie theaters across the country. While some may contend that the film is an indictment against capitalism, Mark Thornton believes it is “an implicit condemnation of government prohibition.”
Mark believes “there is an important difference between wealth and luxury (in the modern sense) and the type of riotous over-the-top behavior on display in such films like The Great Gatsby.”
Mark wrote his dissertation on the economics of prohibition, and understands the value of The Great Gatsby, which displays decadence not merely as titillation for the viewer, but as an object lesson in the evils of prohibition. The entire plot is tied to the prohibition of alcohol, which was accomplished by the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, and many aspects of the plot are driven by the black market that developed in the 1920s.
As Mark points out, “In the world of the black market, property rights were protected with machine guns rather than justice. And the stigma against young women drinking in bars at night was displaced by the allure of an exciting night out on the town drinking and listening to jazz. Instead of these profits going to competing entrepreneurs, the money was going into the pockets of thugs and wannabes. Social order was replaced by chaos. This cultural decay was the ironic fruit of the puritanically-motivated prohibition movement.”
Mark will relate prohibition and The Great Gatsby to what’s happening in America currently.
Dr. Mark Thornton is Senior Fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute. He serves as the Book Review Editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics. He served as the editor of the Austrian Economics Newsletter and as a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Libertarian Studies. He has served as a member of the graduate faculties of Auburn University and Columbus State University. He has also taught economics at Auburn University at Montgomery and Trinity University in Texas. Mark served as Assistant Superintendent of Banking and economic adviser to Governor Fob James of Alabama (1997-1999) and he was awarded the University Research Award at Columbus State University in 2002. His publications include The Economics of Prohibition (1991), Tariffs, Blockades, and Inflation: The Economics of the Civil War (2004), The Quotable Mises (2005), The Bastiat Collection (2007), and An Essay on Economic Theory (2010). He is a graduate of St. Bonaventure University and received his Ph.D. in Economics from Auburn University.

Hour 3: Michael Wood
World-famous cryptographer, Biblical researcher and author Michael Wood (Pauline Paradoxes Decoded) joins Amerika Now during the final hour of the show to discuss a newly unlocked Bible code which he says will end the debate on homosexual marriage.
True or false?
– The Bible says that only Christians go straight to Heaven.
– The Bible says the number “666” refers to Satan or a coming Antichrist.
– The Bible says the wicked suffer eternal damnation in Hell.
– The Bible says premarital sex and homosexuality are mortal sins.
– The Bible says that people must be ‘righteous’ to go straight to heaven.
For the past ten years, Michael has been using his cryptanalytic skills to help scholars more accurately decode the first-century meanings of words and symbols in order to better understand how those words were used by the New Testament authors.
His groundbreaking discoveries are proving that many of the actual messages contained in the New Testament — especially its central message — are shockingly different from what has been previously thought, and he’s earned the attention of top Biblical scholars.
“Even the best Bible scholars can only translate based on what they’ve been told the ancient words mean,” says Wood. “Cryptanalysis of the early material is showing scholars that they’ve been using the incorrect meanings of many Biblical words, and leading experts who have reviewed the research are now concurring.”
Wood says the New Testament authors originally wrote that salvation solely depends on treating others with kindness and benevolence, and that salvation by brotherly love applies equally to all — regardless of race, religion and even sexual orientation.
Through Michael Wood’s cryptanalytic revelations, scholars around the world are finding the New Testament to be a very different book indeed.
During his teen years as a preacher’s kid, Michael won many denominational awards for memorizing entire books of the Bible word for word. As a young adult, he achieved international acclaim for creating the unbreakable code REDOC-II. Later in life, he began to combine his two passions of cryptography and the Bible, making groundbreaking discoveries which are changing the minds of today’s leading Biblical scholars.
Michael’s cryptanalytic and religious worlds collided when he began to study the Dead Sea Scrolls. He quickly realized the experience he gained in cryptanalytic thinking afforded him a unique opportunity empirically to solve some of the still outstanding ancient mysteries. His initial success in making groundbreaking discoveries through cryptanalysis of the Dead Sea Scrolls further inflamed his passion for fusing the historical record, the Bible, and cryptography.
Today, Michael’s full-time devotion is deciphering the Koine Greek papyri, the Hebrew Dead Sea Scrolls, and the Aramaic documents found in Wadi Murabbat to unravel more ancient Biblical revelations.
His previous discoveries are documented in his books, The Jerome Conspiracy, The Hidden Bible, The Jesus Secret, and Breaking the Romans Code. His latest book, Pauline Paradoxes Decoded, successfully deciphers and unifies the seemingly cryptic and contradictory writings on religious Law by the Apostle Paul.
