Embedded below the fold. I began to talk very fast near the end, not because I am a New Yorker but because I feared we would soon be cut off. Listen and find out why.

    Off-topic: Dear Mr. Zimmerman, do you may make entry about importance of free-speech? Here is the first entry:


    Society is fragile ecosystem: Free Speech, Immigration, Islam – Douglas Murray in Stockholm 2016

  • Alex: As you know, I post regularly on the subject of free speech, focused very precisely on its fragile nature and on the increasing attacks against it in our society.

    I am unsure what you mean by “make entry.” Can you clarify?

  • Jake Cummings

    Mr. Zimmerman, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your brilliance on Coast to Coast AM this morning. I always thoroughly enjoy your conversations, expertise and willingness to question questions. Just thought you should know, you sir are very much appreciated……

  • Jake Cummings: Thank you for the kind words. I very much appreciate them. Though I must tell you, it would be better if you send them to George Noory and the people at C2C so as to encourage them to have me on more often. :)

  • Jake Cummings

    I will be sure to do so. Thank you again.

  • Just listened this morning on c2c, thank you for an enlightening talk. So optimistic and refreshing…. I have marked this page and will return

    Mr. Zimmerman:

    Just simple: Entry=Example (here as a youtube link)

  • Robert, I heard you for the first time on C2C last night and truly appreciated how you boiled-down complex subjects concisely and with clarity. Keep up the good work, your efforts are making a positive difference in our world 🌝

    Great subject Sir, and the Earth Mag field update is cool!
    Our poor Sol gets so little attention outside of SPF 50 at the beach.
    I enjoy your website and support you as I am able. Thank you again for your work.

    So, when do I turn my compass back ? It has been a faithful friend for so long.
