Robert David Steele joins the program to discuss the political and historical context of false flag terror in the post-9/11, Sandy Hook and now Orlando eras. From vast experience in public service as a CIA case officer he argues how the US government has been long-influenced by forces working decidedly against the American public.
Steele suggests how the efficacy of probable false flag events to influence public policy is aggravated by the American people’s conditioned apathy and often willful ignorance toward public life itself.
On this episode James talks to world-renown statesman and writer Dr. Steve Pieczenik on the history of false flag terror and how orchestrated events like the Sandy Hook massacre and Boston bombing undermine the integrity of America’s most fundamental institutions, particularly the press and higher education. The two also discuss Dr. Pieczenik’s wide-ranging experience as a crisis manager and how news coverage of foreign affairs has transformed over the past several decades.
Dr. Pieczenik is a critically acclaimed author of psycho-political thrillers and the co-creator of the New York Times best-selling “Tom Clancy’s Op-Center” and “Net Force” book series. Those highly popular works are rooted in his twenty years experience in international relations under five U.S. presidents.
On this episode Niles and Frasier Mercado discuss their recent book, Oregon Shooting: Just Another C.I.A. False Flag, which provides an overview of the October 1, 2015 Umpqua Community College shooting in Roseburg Oregon. The Mercados explain how this work and similar ventures in critical thinking can aid individuals to better understand media coverage of and dramatic increase in mass shooting events, and how such incidents relate to larger socioeconomic and geopolitical frameworks.
On this episode New Zealand-based philosopher Matthew R. X. Dentith interviews James Tracy. The two discuss false flag terror and the uses and origins of the “conspiracy theory” term in modern public discourse.
Matthew is a self-described “conspiracy theory theorist” who wrote his doctoral dissertation on conspiracy theories. In that work and his new book he breaks from the commonplace disparagement of “conspiracy theorists,” arguing in part that engaging with and thinking seriously about political conspiracies would likely contribute to a much more vibrant political discourse than what is observable today.
On this episode journalist and historian Douglas Valentine discusses his research that culminated in the landmark book The Phoenix Program (1990)–the definitive history of the CIA-led counterinsurgency and assassination program carried out in Vietnam during the late 1960s. Phoenix was a major precursor to the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security in the post-9/11 era and remains a potential harbinger in light of domestic military exercises such as Jade Helm set to begin this week.
