A prediction: John Hogue will not be on DARK MATTER again

You may have sensed a bit of tension last night on Art Bell's DARK MATTER. Long time guest, and seemingly favorite Nostradamus expert, John Hogue appeared.. Hogue appeared to be overjoyed that finally, after all these years, he was able to be back the radio with Bell.. years in the making, his appearance focused on Syria, the future, and anything else that came up..

Midway through the interview--around the time when Hogue compared himself to Nostradamus as the best prophet since the famed seeer, Art Bell's interview style changed.. There was more sarcasm.. more "please shorten your statement" requests.. Hurrying right along, Hogue protested and asked for an ability to expand further on his thoughts..

And today, a day after the dust settled on Sirius radio, Hogue offered his own thoughts on his appearance tonight on Facebook..

Hogue wrote,
"For me, I found it a bit odd that Art would be pushing me along. In all my years in radio I've never had a host demand not once but three times "on air" to shorten my replies, even though, as I protested on air, that you don't ask a profound question and then tell your guest to keep their answer to two or three words, or just one word: "yes" or "no". I have no problem with Art's adversarial approach. I welcome it. As you all know, just reading this Facebook stream and my "comments" page at, I enjoy the good fight. However, when I am on a radio show with the host on the level of an Art Bell, I do expect from him a higher standard of professionalism. I expect the host to have "read" my work, be versed in my world view, so they can go after my views "with authority" and not sound like he or she is taking a crack at me, like some of you do, amateurishly uninformed. So, I am a bit offended by Art attacking me from what I feel was a place of ignorance. I felt like his knowledge of my work last night did not extend very far from the few questions that guests are asked to send to a host to help generate talking points. By the way this is a custom in radio that I do support. Usually these questions are only used as an outline, a catalyst to generate a flow between me and the host that takes the show on its own arc and narrative. Some of Art's and my best classic shows were born from this process. Now then, on another matter. After so many years having on his show since 1994 I think Art ought to finally understand and accept the reality that if you ask a profound question you have to give your guest some time to set up the background.
Hogue finished by saying,
"Profound questions take time to answer. The fact that I was denied an hour but rushed along, its seems, to fill Art's show with three-hours worth of answers in only two, is not the kind of thing I expect coming from a major league radio host. This isn't KRAP Radio. Dark Matter ought to be held to a higher standard"
Darkness falls on all that matters..

A fair prediction: Hogue may not share his prophecies again on DARK MATTER..

Score one for Noory.



Mystery continues on why the Sunspot solar observatory was shut down

Sunspot apologizes for the continued closure of the facilities,” a statement on the observatory’s Facebook page said on Sunday. “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is addressing a security issue at the National Solar Observatory facility at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure..

And that is just about all the public knows about why the FBI shut down the observatory within notice warning or after-event statements..
But online, theories rage into the night as to what caused the FBI to sweep into the town, close down the space observatory along with the town post office, and ever let anyone back in.. The entire observatory is reportedly empty at this time—employees obviously gone but some Twitter reports state that the actual equipment and other items have been taken away as well.
Major media is rightly paying close attention to the hurricane along the East Coast,  but lost in the Atlantic sh…

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment." No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
