Mary’s Mosaic is the best-written of all the JFK assassination books I’ve read. It provides unparalleled insights into the depths of several larger-than-life characters involved in this amazing Shakespearean drama: John F. Kennedy: A shallow womanizer who suffered from debilitating illnesses and chronic severe pain, JFK’s character flaws stemmed from deeply troubled relationships with his... Listen
NASA whistleblower Richard Cook is the author of Challenger Revealed: An Insider’s Account of How the Reagan Administration Caused the Greatest Tragedy of the Space Age. After the much-ballyhooed “teacher-in-space” Challenger space shuttle blew up, killing all crew members, in January, 1986, Cook spearheaded the partial unraveling of the coverup by feeding inside information and...

Ron Unz is America’s most accomplished figure in alternative journalism. If you doubt that, read his American Pravda series, look at his webzine, and let me know if you find anything comparable. Ron’s latest American Pravda entry, “Remembering the Liberty,” admirably summarizes the best available information on Israel’s June 8, 1967 attack on the unarmed... Listen
’m reposting this interview, recorded in March 2016, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the murder of Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi. -KB Ellen Brown, author of Web of Debt and The Public Bank Solution, discusses her new article Exposing the Libya Agenda: A Closer Look at Hillary’s Emails: “Critics have long questioned why... Listen
Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould call The Valediction – Three Nights of Desmond “a novelized memoir.” It details their 1980s discovery that neoconservatives and allied members of the War Party were mounting an ongoing coup d’état against American democracy. (That coup would come to full fruition with the 2001 9/11 false flag atrocity, but that’s... Listen
Ken Meyercord discusses his article “9/11: Controlled Demolition of Truth.” In it he writes: “I believe the planes were remotely controlled. One of the most telling pieces of evidence for this is the incredible bit of flying the supposed pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon, Hani Hanjour, performed. The maneuver he made—a... Listen
Long-time 9/11 activist, poet, and Vermont secessionist Jim Hogue, author of the classic “Ballad of Ladder Five,” is fired up to resist the escalating vaccine mandates: “I hope they move into soft-target Vermont first with these draconian plans. Maybe there are more of us than we think who will stand up to them. My guess... Listen
Former NASA scientist Dwain Deets discusses Scientists for 9/11 Truth‘s research on how airplanes were and were not used in the 9/11 false flag operation. Deets says that the Flight Data Recorder record of the eastbound leg of Flight 77’s journey that allegedly ended with an extremely high-speed ground-level crash into the Pentagon deserves scrutiny:... Listen
Twenty years ago today, neoconservatives blew up the Twin Towers and blamed it on Muslims. Since that day we have witnessed an ongoing erosion of public trust in political, scientific and journalistic authority. Nobody quite knows what to believe any more. But we do know what not to believe: anything the mainstream media tells us.... Read More
Family members Bob McIlvaine and Joe Krackenfels join Ray McGinnis, author of Unanswered Questions: What the September Eleventh Families Asked and the 9/11 Commission Ignored. Bob McIlvaine’s son Bobby, and Joe Krackenfels’ nephew Leonard, were murdered on 9/11 by the criminals who orchestrated the explosive demolition of the World Trade Center. They are joined by...

Listen
Why did the perpetrators of the 1968 RFK assassination use a Palestinian as their hypnotized patsy? Is it just a coincidence that Jacob Rubenstein (“Jack Ruby”), the mob bagman who silenced Lee Harvey “I’m just a patsy” Oswald, worked for gangster Mickey Cohen, the all-time biggest fundraiser for Israel in US history? (And that the... Listen
Is America’s defeat in Afghanistan divine justice? I raised that question in today’s khutbah (Muslim sermon). And author and Middle East expert Eric Walberg has also raised it in his new article of that title. Eric cites the Book of Daniel about how “the handwriting was on the wall” for Belshazzar’s empire, applies it to... Listen
The prolific Matthew Ehret has just published a book, The Clash of Two Americas v.1 (with Cynthia Chung), and a lengthy article, “How China’s Gorbachev Was Flushed in 1989.” Check out all of Matt’s books HERE. In the book, Ehret identifies his two Americans with two long-standing schools of thought: “The idea of a society... Listen
Philip Kraske’s grippingly readable new novella A Legacy of Chains fleshes out an interesting and not-entirely-implausible scenario: A few surviving American POWs left behind in Vietnam, now senior citizens, manage to escape…but find an American government and media determined to suppress their story, and the “Enormous Crime” it reveals. Something not unlike the events in... Listen
Has the US repeatedly used bioweapons in anger? Is COVID-19 just the latest episode? Ron Unz, who has written about the Suvorov thesis (discussed in my previous interview with Sean McMeekin) discusses his most recent article “American Pravda: Waging Biological Warfare.” In it he summarizes material from Nicholson Baker (author of “The Lab Leak Hypothesis“)... Listen
Bard College history professor Sean McMeekin discusses his new book Stalin’s War: A New History of World War II. McMeekin’s engrossing narrative presents an implicit and sometimes explicit argument that the war’s primary instigator and villain was Stalin, not Hitler. For while the Fuhrer may have been an aggressor, dictator, human rights abuser, and general... Listen
Steven Rosenbaum and Pamela Yoder are the filmmakers behind The Outsider, scheduled for release August 19th—assuming the 9/11 Museum’s team of lawyers hired to torpedo the film do not succeed. As the New York Daily News reports: “Top officials of the 9/11 Memorial and Museum want to cut 18 scenes they call ‘defamatory’ from an... Listen
Edward Curtin’s classic article “The Satanic Nature of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki” is worth re-reading as we commemorate the holocausts perpetrated August 6 and August 9, 1945. The fact that the people running the American empire are purely and simply evil—the term “psychopathic” isn’t strong enough—was illustrated by the completely unnecessary atomic... Listen
Ralph Cinque of the Oswald Innocence Campaign and scriptwriter for the forthcoming film The Pro Bono Watchman (watch the trailer) thinks JFK got iced…literally. He argues for a new interpretation of the (edited-by-the-perps) Zapruder film, claiming that the first shot hit JFK’s back earlier than the official story and edited film depict, which shot consisted... Listen
Ray McGinnis, author of Writing the Sacred, has just come out with a new book about 9/11.

Christopher Fogarty discusses his recently-revised book Ireland 1845-1850: The Perfect Holocaust and Who Kept It “Perfect”. The book presents detailed evidence supporting its claim that millions of Irish, the best estimate being 5.2 million, were murdered by the British government between 1845 and 1850. Contrary to the Irish Holocaust deniers’ claims of a mythical “potato... Listen

Below is the original posting. -KB, 7/5/2021 Live Interview with... Listen
Senator Mike Gravel passed away last Saturday, June 26. Obituaries by the New York Times, Democracy Now, and other supposedly trustworthy outlets failed to mention Senator Gravel’s nearly two decades of support for the 9/11 truth movement, which he was privately advising even before I came onboard in 2004. In affectionate memory of one of... Listen
What roles did neoconservatism (the Straussian atheistic political philosophy of the Big Lie) and Zionism (the messianic-millennarian project dedicated to creating and maintaining a Jewish state in Palestine) play in 9/11? Why are there double-standards governing what can and can’t be said about Jews on the one hand, and Muslims on the other? How has... Listen
Science professor Gideon Polya says Rep. Ilhan Omar should be ashamed of herself for comparing Israel to Hamas: “Somali-born and Muslim American Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar recently caused a storm by Tweeting ‘We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity. We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed... Listen
Philosophy professors James Fetzer and Sterling Harwood debate the existence of Paul McCartney on the occasion of his 79th birthday. Is the guy celebrating his 79th birthday today the original Paul, or an impostor known as Faul? Sterling Harwood isn’t buying James Fetzer’s “Paul is dead” theory…even though Harwood admits there are some interesting items... Listen
Ken Meyercord—like fellow Truth Jihad Radio regular Randy Short—seems to be running for the office of “most dangerous man in DC.” Ken’s cable access TV show (check out the Holocaust episode) has focused on the same kinds of topics we cover here. And when he isn’t butchering sacred cows on Washington DC-area cable TV, Ken... Listen
Edward Curtin discusses Ron Unz’s argument that COVID was deliberately unleashed by neocons in a biowar attack on China and Iran, as well as Ed’s recent article “Second Stage Terror Wars,” which begins: “It is well known that the endless U.S. war on terror was overtly launched following the mass murders of September 11, 2001...

Philosophy professor and practicing attorney Sterling Harwood didn’t have time to discuss his take on the moon landing controversy last time he was on the show. So let’s bring him back! Sterling Harwood’s highly recommended book The Greatest Mystery of the Beatles: Critical Thinking on Paul is Dead & the Skeptical Sixties examines several 1960s... Listen
Seven years ago on this show I interviewed Troy Davis, the son of World Citizen Garry Davis. Today we revisit this fascinating story with Arthur Kanegis, director of the new film Martin Sheen Presents: The World Is My Country: The Garry Davis Story, which will premiere on PBS this month: “The film, introduced by Academy... Listen
Since the recent 9/11 physics debate focusing on the nuclear demolition hypothesis garnered a lot of interest in the Unz comment section, and since nanothermite-investigating chemistry professor Niels Harrit recently published an interesting article on the shortcomings of PCR tests, I thought this would be a good time for a flashback to the Great Demolition... Listen
VIDEO VERSION In this, the eighth annual 9/11 Physics Debate sponsored by ANETA.org, François Roby, associate professor in physics at the Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, and German nuclear physicist Heinz Pommer join American engineer Joseph Olson, PE to advance the 9/11 nuclear demolition hypothesis. Since all three agree that the official... Listen
Holocaust/genocide expert Gideon Polya discusses his review of The most dangerous book ever published: deadly deception exposed.

Did Dostoevsky's Demons Predict Wokeism, Antifa and the Gender-Benders?
Since the so-called insurrection of January 6, big media, big government, and big corporations have been demanding the collective scalp of the Trumpian alt-right. If we don't somehow make those 70 million Trump voters disappear, the subtext goes, American democracy is doomed. The alt-right agrees that American democracy faces an existential threat, but disagrees vociferously... Read More
Moscow-born musician Tessa Lena‘s “The Great Reset for Dummies” is one of the best available essays on the subject. She recently compared 2021 America to the collapsed ex-USSR: “It is with great frustration that I say this—but 2021 in America is a lot less fun than the 1990s in the post-Soviet space. Both are the... Listen
Trump, Self-Styled “King of Israel,” Has Failed to Save America from Democrats and Pedophiles…Will His Cult Followers Keep Making Excuses? In the year 1666 the whole Jewish world went crazy. A manic-depressive madman named Sabbatai Zevi, aided by his loquacious PR flack, Nathan of Gaza, had declared himself the Messiah. History hadn’t been kind to... Read More
My fellow Revolution Radio host Robert Morningstar publishes UFO Digest, makes films, investigates red-pill topics…and has some very weird views of Islam. But he’s definitely barking up the right tree on the JFK assassination. In the first half of this interview he explains what really happened in Dealy Plaza, and how the Zapruder film was... Listen
Journalist and activist Barbara Honegger returns to Truth Jihad Radio. She sent this list of topics: 1) The Lawyers’ Committee’s Oct. 15th filing with all 535 Members of Congress a Petition calling for a reopening of the Anthrax Attacks investigation. The date was intentionally chosen as it’s the anniversary of the date Daschle’s aide opened... Listen
History professor and election integrity expert Harvey Wasserman (alongside Bob Fitrakis) helped expose the biggest well-documented presidential election theft-by-rigged-voting-machines ever: John Kerry’s unreported landslide 2004 victory over George W. Bush. So what does Harvey make of Trump’s claim that the 2020 election was rigged? In this interview Harvey Wasserman mentions the websites grassrootsep.org, rmi.org, and... Listen
Adam Green of KnowMoreNews just had his YouTube channel taken down. Why? Maybe because he is asking why the many well-documented reports of Zionist foreknowledge of 9/11 — including a just-discovered report about Israel’s top Hasidic rabbi saying “say goodbye to those (Twin Towers), you won’t be seeing them again” not long before the demolitions—are... Listen
On November 5th German prosecutors and a district court judge in Dresden suddenly ended their 32-month criminal case against Lady Michèle Renouf just days before the trial was to begin.

Peace activist David Swanson is the author of the new book Leaving World War II Behind.

In his new article “Is This the Man with his Finger on the Button?” award-winning journalist Eric Margolis offers a nuanced yet devastating assessment of Trump’s alleged remarks calling fallen soldiers “losers” and “suckers”: “Our commander-in-chief Trump reportedly dodged the Vietnam era draft six times, at least once because of a little bone spur in...

I recently encountered the work of Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy through his review of The Martyrdom of Thomas Merton, reprinted below. (Check out my interview with co-author David Martin.) Clearly “Charlie” McCarthy is one of those rare American religious leaders who are both well-informed and committed to seeking and speaking the truth. In this interview... Listen
