James speaks with Southern California-based political commentator John Friend, a 29-year-old man who was recently terminated from his position in the Escondido City Manager’s office because after being targeted for his online political speech. He has been deemed a “conspiracy theorist,” “white supremacist” and “anti-semite” for challenging conventional historical narratives of 9/11 and World War II.
Friend appears to have entered the sites of anonymous forces who chose to use the press–in this case the San Diego Tribune (here and here)–in a campaign that pressured Friend’s employer to force him into relinquishing his position with the municipality. Tracy experienced a similar scenario when the South Florida Sun-Sentinel ran a smear campaign in early 2013 highlighting Tracy’s analyses of Sandy Hook school massacre press coverage.
This week’s Real Politik consists of a pre-recorded conversation with RT correspondent and commentator Patrick Henningsen with James Tracy that originally aired on the July 26 edition of Henningsen’s weekly radio broadcast, Sunday Wire.
Mr. Henningsen is also the founder of the exciting alternative news and analysis website 21st Century Wire.

Newcomers can get up to speed by reading the background section below. What I’m presenting doesn’t solve any mysteries, ultimately. These are merely theories and information for continued research and speculation. I welcome and encourage people to add their perspectives, to debate the merits of the theories presented and develop those of their own. The goal for many of us has been to understand what happened to Michael. In the process, some of our suspicions may be confirmed and we may learn some unexpected things along the way.
