Recap of last year's appearance (from coasttocoast.com)
The Coming of Maitreya
"Benjamin Crème of shareintl.org, made an eloquent appearance on Tuesday night's show, speaking of the "incredibly evolved master" known as Maitreya. He described him as a being who is literally millions of years old, and who has for the first time in history come himself to our physical world. Crème, who is 80 years old, says that in the past Maitreya "overshadowed" the consciousness of such great figures as Jesus and Buddha.
"They are ignorant, misinformed, and afraid," Crème said of those who claim that Maitreya is the Antichrist. "They have never experienced his love and his humanity," he continued. According to Crème, Maitreya is waiting to make himself known at the proper time, which he believes may be when the developed world has a major economic collapse. It's "the only thing that will bring humanity face to face with reality a burst in their economic security," Crème said. It is the giant gap between the haves and have nots that urgently needs to be redressed in our world, Crème pointed out. This total lack of balance he states causes the "inability to see the world as one."
"I was filled with the love of all the world, tears rolled down my cheek," Crème said of his first telepathic encounter with Maitreya. He described being "inside a great sphere of white light," where on the right side was an amalgamation of past events, the left side the future. And he heard Maitreya's voice saying, "I myself am coming, and you'll have a role to play if you accept it."
"Benjamin Crème, tonight's guest, first began presenting messages from Maitreya, the "World Teacher," in public forums in 1977. He says that Maitreya had spent the last 2,000 years in a "body of light" at a retreat in the Himalayas, but has now resurrected in a physical form that he "self-created" and that he lives and works in London. Many of Maitreya's messages are based around the idea of sharing and global cooperation.
"According to Crème, Maitreya has the ability to appear and disappear at will, and has in fact materialized in gatherings around the world, where he takes on the form of a Messianic figure recognizable to that culture. Most notable was his appearance in Nairobi, Kenya in 1988 where he was said to be identified as "the Christ" in front of 6,000 people. There has been speculation, particularly among certain guests on Coast that Maitreya is actually the Antichrist. In fact, Kathleen Keating said he appeared suddenly in her backyard wearing a pony tail and an Armani suit. Crème believes the Antichrist is an energy rather than a person, and that it has already come and gone in the form of Hitler and his associates.
One of the most startling claims about Maitreya concerns what has been called "The Day of Declaration." According to Crème's affiliated website, shareintl.org,"Maitreya will be invited to speak to the entire world via the linked television satellite networks We will see his face on television, but he will not actually speak. Instead, each of us will hear his words telepathically in our own language as he simultaneously impresses the minds of all humanity. Even those who are not watching Maitreya on television will have this experience. His energy of love will enter the hearts of all, galvanizing humanity to save the world."
END QUOTE FROM WEB SITE
A bunch of shysters making money on a weird ideas. Still, there are nutcases around who'll believe anything. I'm annoyed that coast-to-coast broadcasts all over the country on Clear Channel, an allegedly fairly conservative radio company. The show frequently features guests who delve into "arcane" topics and end their speils with major Bush bashing, sometimes as messages from the beyond....
Listening to Coast to Coast is great. Kind of like the Gong Show.
Kathleen Keating also recommends against listening. So I won't, but did want to read something of his background. The link pointed to on the coasttocoastam site says plenty about the nut. Amazing how he takes credit for every "miracle" that ever happens in the world (N.B. some may be legitimate miracles, but he sure as hell doesn't have anything to do with them, except, perhaps, in his capacity as an antichrist wannabe).

George Snorey is a fast-acting soma, imo.
Art Bell was a much better host than Noory.

Creme will be on Thursday night. Tomorrow nite for me, I'm on the Left Coast.
Doesn't seem scary, seems pretty lame.
Lives and works in London.." FR's Mad Ivan?? (Couldn't resist).
FLIMFLAM is right. Charlatans have been continuously preying on easy marks from the time we came out of the caves, if not before, and they are continuing to do so today.
Most of their marks are Democrats, and this has been noticed by the leaders of the Democrats who now have overtly adopted the style and substance of the charlatans and swindlers.
The marks are still falling for it, hook, line and sinker.
"Sydney's top hairdressers are divided over the pony-tail style sported by actor Russell Crowe at his wedding to singer Danielle Spencer on Monday. Celebrity hairdresser Joh Bailey was yesterday confounded by the dyed blond pony, which was pulled back from an austere centre part.
"I just can't see the marriage between a centre-part pony tail and an Armani suit," he said.
There are over a THOUSAND references to ponytail and an Armani suit on Google.com
Sounds like Mr. Burns when he was mistaken for the alien in the X-Files episode of the Simpsons.
From Kathleen Keating. I do take this seriously.
