Wednesday on The Morning Zone, Dave's guests will be:

7:07AM MST:  Darren Thompson guests to talk about  Iran's Role in Armageddon 2012ARMAGEDDON IN 2012: Daniel's Ram-Goat prophecy of Iran (ancient Persia), Kurds (ancient Medes) and the Antichrist. What will it take for America to declare war on Iran before Iran sets the Persian Gulf ablaze? There is one attitude that clouds the United States strategy in the Middle East: the belief that Iran is a troublesome, out of control, third rate country. The Iranians see themselves as more than “troublesome”; their objective is to become the sole Superpower in the Persian Gulf.

Once one understands this about Iran it clarifies to a great extent their actions. Nuclear weapons acquisition for Iran is not so much about threatening Israel as it is about gaining “respect”. The drive for regional respect is the backbone for their desire to be the most powerful military in the region. Yet they are not content with this, they have much grander plans.

If anything Iran is logical and patient; they are waiting, waiting on the United States to leave Afghanistan in 2012. Once the U.S. leaves the region the Iranian regime will be able to implement their grand scheme. They will invade Iraq; no one doubts this. However they will then invade Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Iran will control the Persian Gulf and 2/3rds of the world’s oil supply and be able to blackmail the whole world with oil. Iran will have achieved their goal as sole Superpower in the Persian Gulf. This is the event that will start “Armageddon” in the Persian Gulf.

Available to be your Talk Show interview guest on the current chaos in the Middle East is new author DARREN THOMPSON who has a talent in bringing together current events and biblical prophecy.

Darren Thompson describes in his book, “Living in the Age of the Ram and the Goat: The Coming War Between Iran and the United States as foretold in the book of Daniel,” how his modern day interpretation of the prophet Daniel’s vision of the ram and the goat is being manifested in the developing events taking place in the Middle East.

Thompson sees the involvement of the Kurds (ancient Medes) with Iran (ancient Persians) being crucial for these events to take place.

Darren says, “The circumstances of the Arab Spring have now pitted Iran and Syria against Turkey which in turn have caused Iran to form an alliance with the PKK (the Kurdish Terrorist Group fighting Turkey). This has opened the door for Iran to have a closer relationship with the Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq. This Kurd/Iran alliance is a direct fulfillment of the prophet Daniel’s ram in his vision.”

Thompson concludes, “World events now are much like the Chinese Curse, ‘May you live in interesting times.’ Indeed the times are interesting for the Christian that can see the fulfillment of God’s plan by experiencing the fulfillment of Daniel’s vision of the ram and the goat.”


Darren Thompson is an author, commentator and media guest who has a talent correlating world events with their fulfillment of biblical prophecy. He has also self-published three books, “Living in the Age of the Ram and the Goat: The Coming War Between Iran and the United States as foretold in the book of Daniel,”, “The Fourth Day: Why the Bible is Historically Accurate” and “Why the Bible is Historically Accurate” (2nd Edition)

7:37AM MST: Mike Hammond (General counsel for Gun Owners Of America) He will be giving us an update you won't want to miss...ISSA/ HOLDER: Fast and Furious Scandal May Reach a Tipping Point on February 2nd...Scandal May Reach a Tipping Point on February 2nd
When Rep. Darrell Issa subpoenaed the testimony of Patrick Cunningham, head of the criminal division at the US Attorneys Office in Arizona, Cunningham responded by invoking his fifth amendment right not to testify. Since then, Issa has demanded the testimony of Cunningham's subordinate, Michael Morrissey. He did so with a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and gave him a deadline of January 26th . It's possible that Morrissey may follow Cunningham's lead in seeking fifth amendment protection. All of these developments are taking place on the eve of what promises to be a day of high drama on February 2nd – Groundhog Day. Executive Director of the Gun Owners of America, Larry Pratt, will be in attendance and is available for interviews beginning on February 3rd.

In the meantime, GOA General Counsel, Mike Hammond is available to discuss the implications of senior US prosecutors like Cunningham and Morrissey invoking their Fifth Amendment rights. Will they be granted immunity so that Issa and congressional investigators can use their testimony to identify players higher up the chain? Will Cunningham and Morrissey be the Justice Department's sacrificial lambs? Will they give Issa's investigators devastating information on who was behind operation fast and furious before Holder testifies?

There are several scenarios that could play out but the Fast and Furious scandal appears to be coming to a head. Either the investigation will end with the Justice Department's highest ranking officials in Arizona taking the fall, which will let their superiors off the hook or this investigation is about to reach an entirely new level.

Michael E. Hammond has spent the better part of his career in government service. He has been a legislative counsel to Senators Bob Smith (R-NH), Gordon Humphrey (R-NH), Jesse Helms (R-NC), and Steve Symms (R-ID). He has served as Special Assistant and legislative assistant to Senator Harry Byrd (1-VA) and Senator James Buckley (R-NY) respectively in 1980. Mr. Hammond was a member of the Dept of Education transition team and the Dept of Justice transition team. From 1977-1989 he served as General Counsel to the United States US Senate Steering Committee. Mr. Hammond received his B.A. Magna Cum Laude from Washington University and J.D. from the New York University School of Law. He presently serves as a political consultant and writer as well as General Counsel for the Gun Owners of America.
