Mr. Pauly is the author of The Murder of Time: Making and Unmasking a Sleeper.

When Blogging Makes You a Terrorist

James Tracy interviews Colorado-based filmmaker, educator and activist Danny Ledonne, a former media arts professor at Adams State University in ledonne-photo3Alamosa Colorado whose online exposés of his university’s managerial practices put him in the crosshairs of the school’s top administrators.

After the accomplished filmmaker was glossed over for a tenure-track position in the university’s communications department and subsequently terminated from his adjunct instructor position he made public records requests suggesting the school’s corrupt and non-transparent administrative practices. Ledonne began a blog to publish these, WatchingAdams.org, and encouraged other faculty to leak information that might prompt Adams State toward enacting reforms.

Empire of Manufactured Terror

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-Steeleinfluenced 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.

It’s a Staged Terror World After All

Citizen journalist Robin from Honr.info and YouTube channel HowISee the World joins James this week to discuss the Orlando mass shooting event and other related “terrorist” Robin-HISTWnarratives now commonplace in the corporate media terrain.

Robin’s online research and analysis of such poorly-understood incidents suggest how easy it should be for journalists and news organizations to examine the storylines presented by government agencies and spokespersons. Over the past several years he has made dozens of recorded calls to the very official parties whose feet need to be held to the fire, including the FBI and medical personnel, yet who are rarely held to account in any meaningful way by salaried reporters.

Why Did We Fight “The Bad War”?

Americans today have an almost identical recollection of World War Two as the “good war”, fought by their forebears against cartoonisly evil “Nazis” and “Japs”. Yet how much do we really know about that crucial event and the decades of complex European history preceding it? Why, and for whom, were the twentieth century’s worldwide wars actually waged?

badwarM.S. “Mike” King joins James to discuss his 2015 book The Bad War: The Truth Never Taught About World War 2. Mike is a private investigative journalist, researcher, and political analyst based in the New York City area. A 1987 graduate of Rutgers University, he spent 30 years in marketing and advertising–areas of expertise that have equipped him with a unique perspective when it comes to understanding how “public opinion” on decisive issues and events has been scientifically manufactured for at least a century.

whatcottToday there is considerable justified alarm concerning the dangers vaccines pose to human health. Yet there are few alternatives offered to the conventional vaccination schedule.

Homeoprophylaxis is a safe and natural alternative to conventional vaccination.

From Berkeley ’64 to PC Orthodoxy: Creating ‘Unsafe Spaces’

Tom Slater of Spiked UK joins James on this week’s Real Politik to discuss the war against free expression being waged on college campuses across the West by today’s self-appointed emissaries of political correctness. In stark contrast from the 1960s, when college students at UC Berkeley and elsewhere forged paths toward intellectual and personal autonomy while vigorously defending all forms of speech, many faculty and students today seek to be shielded from virtually anything they deem threatening or hurtful.slater

Stemming from the backdropof now common anti-Enlightenment precepts that characterize much of the humanities, the crusade for political correctness reaches from scholarly publications and the seminar room to government-mandated efforts policing behavior and intimate relations.

Art of the Unspeakable

doug_02Renowned artist Doug Auld joins James on this edition to discuss the social and political dimensions of his life’s work. Auld’s most recent and controversial collection, Those Who Blew the Whistle (2016), consists of 50 unique portraits of “people willing to bring upon themselves enormous controversy and upheaval for seemingly little to no reward.”

Auld’s creations often focus on human forms and subject matter that have been overlooked or shunned by the broader society. Perhaps most notable among these is the acclaimed three-year project culminating in State of Grace (2005), which consists of ten large scale portraits of adolescent burn survivors. The collection received international recognition in the New York Times and Washington Post, and was also featured in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC.
