The Lost City Of The Monkey God Douglas Preston

I love legends. I love lost mysteries. And tonight we are deviling into a true one, a recent one that National Geographic Channel has just made a feature documentary about. coffee The book is called "The Lost City Of The Monkey God, A True Story" its author and our guest tonight, who barely escaped with his life, Douglas Preston. Our journey begins tonight with a legend and a lost mystery. Since the days of conquistador Hernan Cortes, rumors have circulated about an ancient "White City", a city of immense wealth hidden in the Honduran interior. Indigenous tribes spoke of ancestors who had fled there to escape the Spanish. They warned of a curse, a curse so ominous that anyone who dared disturb this sacred city would suffer unspeakable suffering and disease that would ultimately kill them. In 1940, journalist Theodore Morde returned from the jungle with hundreds of artifacts and tantalizing stories of having seen the crumbling walls of the Lost City of the Monkey God for himself. Disturbingly, soon after, he committed suicide without revealing its mysterious location. It is into this tale that our guest tonight Douglas Preston entered as part of a national Geographic Channel expedition and added the next chapter in the saga.

A quick bio about Douglas Preston is a is #1 New York Times bestselling author, he has written and edited for the American Museum of Natural History and taught writing at Princeton University. He has written for The New Yorker, Natural History, National Geographic, Harper's, Smithsonian, and The Atlantic. He is author of several acclaimed nonfiction books—including the bestseller The Monster of Florence—Preston is also the co-author with Lincoln Child of the bestselling series of novels featuring FBI agent Pendergast.

"People need history in order to know themselves to build a sense of identity and pride, continuity, community and hope for the future."

"Archeology contains many cautionary tales for us to ponder in the 21st century. Not just about disease, but also about human success and failure. It teaches us lesson in environmental degradation, income inequality, war, violence, class division, exploitation, social upheaval, religious fanaticism, but, archeology also teaches us how cultures have thrived and endured overcoming the challenges."

Youtube Adpocalypse Eric Feinberg



Tonight we are going to get to the bottom of what has been labeled "The You Tube Apocalypse" and what really happened and what is really going on.
Eric Feinberg - HIIT System Specialist, the man who allegedly took down You Tube

So what caused all this. Some background for you that maybe unaware fo what has happened on You Tube and what it means: On March 24, 2017, the newspaper: The Wall Street Journal ran an article by Jack Nicas titled: Google’s YouTube Has Continued Showing Brands’ Ads With Racist and Other Objectionable Videos; PepsiCo, Wal-Mart, Dish Network say they are suspending Google non-search ads

So, what happened next? The advertisers had a knee jerk reaction and without think through their actions and their consequences pulled all of their advertising off of You Tube. As is this consequential?

You Tube has a moto that states "broadcast yourself" . Not only broadcast yourself, but as a creator You Tube broadcaster, just like television we will run commercials or ads on your videos , charge advertisers to do that and give you a percentage of the revenue we make from advertisers. Sounds good no? Ok but is allowed to be broadcast and what isn't?

Ok quickly here is how it works. I am what You Tube calls a You Tube content creator. This very show I am doing right now and you are watching is on my you tube channel. You Tube now has my show as what they call "content" to run advertisers commercials under. So there are 3 components to You Tube 1. Content 2. You Tube supplying a platform to broadcast the content 3. advertisers who run ads. What's in it for the advertisers. Numbers of people watching. The reach billions of people every year and sell their products again just like TV. It has up until now, worked well . But the system is reliant on all 3 components. The system is broken. The advertisers have bailed.

In another knee jerk unthought out reaction You Tube themselves have panicked and implemented some pretty draconian new rules. To appease the advertisers and make it "safe" for them they have set new rules that anything that deem too controversial will not be allowed to run ads under them. Seems reasonable except, Lydia Reich example.

The human impact: million of YouTube creators are now out of work. Yes millions (estimates have the number at approx six million). people that fed their kids, derived a living from their work, supplemented incomes now have none. Yesterday despite having over 300 video on You Tube, most of historical informative nature, I made 88 cents.

He's been called The Man Who Took Down You Tube? down, sounds a little draconian to me though, not sure I agree with that statement, but let's continue, he has had death threats hurled against him, one online video, with an ominous tone, tells him to be very careful and watch his back and I quote from the video "I would not be surprised to find out he might be found bludgeoned to death by one of his torn off limbs, I don't condone him getting killed over this but I won't be surprised when they are".

Road to War with Douglas Horne

Show time, welcome to the show I'm Brent Holland. Get the coffee going, get the tea going or a beverage of choice. Get in your most comfy chair, kick your feet back and take this time for yourself you have worked and deserve it. Tonight Douglas Horne returns.

Douglas P. Horne is a former U.S. Naval Officer & graduated Cum Laude majoring in history from The Ohio State University. Doug is author of the five-volume work "Inside the Assassination Records Review Board" (about the U.S. Government's medical cover-up of the JFK assassination).

Tonight we are going to explore his new research & findings from his new two volume set of books titled: "Deception Intrigue & The Road to War Volumes 1 & 2" According to Doug's new research, only 11 days before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, on November 26, 1941, FDR received a top secret message from Churchill warning of an impending Japanese attack, specifically on Pearl harbor. Doug has produced a grand "new synthesis" which answers the persistent question: "Did FDR know about the Pearl Harbor attack before it took place?" It is my great pleasure to welcome back to the show, Douglas Horne. Doug, can you take us back to the morning of December 7, 1941, the day that will live in infamy, and give us a brief synopsis of the traditional narrative of what took place?

Martin Luther King Assassination Special

Show time welcome to the show, I'm Brent Holland and welcome one and all to Night Fright. Today is a very special day for us here at Night Fright. Today is April 4th. Today is the anniversary of the day Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968. Today we live in a world where a black man has been in the White House, but with a distinct difference from all black people before him in The White House, instead of a person of service, Barrack Obama occupied the most powerful position in the world, The President Of The United Sates. But, make no mistake, it took a lot of red for black to be in the White House.

I want to turn to my favorite song from the band U2. Pride: In The Name Of Love. Its lyrics:

Early morning, April four, Shot rings out in the Memphis sky. Free at last, they took your life, They could not take your pride. Those of course are the lyrics to U2's famous song Pride: In the name of Love. A quick explanation of the lyrics. Dr Martin Luther King Jr. was shot and killed in Memphis on April 4th 1968. His name is "King" and therefore, poetically, his followers could be considered his "pride" ; as that is what lions in a group are referred to. What is most important, is the line from the song that says: they could not take your pride. They didn't stop the Civil Rights movement with the murder of Dr King. The Civil Rights movement was bigger than any one man. It was just. It was right and its time was neigh.

Our guests tonight, Larry Hancock and Stuart Wexler, have written what many feel is the definitive book about the King assassination it is titled: THE AWFUL GRACE OF GOD Religious Terrorism, White Supremacy, and the Unsolved Murder of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Tonight we will examine the conspiracy to kill Dr. King, who set up the plot, who was behind it and if James Earl Ray was indeed the lone nut assassin acting on whim , just like they try to tell us both Lee Harvey Oswald was of JFK and Sirhan Sirhan was of Bobby Kennedy. Or if there is more to the story than we have been lead to believe. Let's find out shall we?

Larry Hancock: After service in the Air Force and a career in computer communications Larry Hancock has pursued his lifelong interest in history, researching and writing a number of books dealing with the assassinations of the 1960's and covert and deniable warfare into the 21st Century. His most recent book now in print is Surprise Attack, an exploration of the American security response to attacks from Pearl Harbor though 9/11 and Benghazi.

Stuart Wexler's research on political violence in modern America has been featured in his book America's Secret Jihad and in the book the Awful Grace of God, co-authored with Larry Hancock. Wexler has expanded on his research in appearances on NPR with Leonard Lopate, in the Washington Post, in Newsweek and in the Daily Beast, among other media outlets.
