Daniel Pinchbeck , author of the recent Substack articles “Are We in a Pseudopandemic?” and “The Antidote to Squid Games: Our culture hooks us on dystopian spectacle to keep us from awakening to our true nature” knows how MSM works: “As someone who used to work in the mainstream media, writing for The New York...

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

Methinks the Chinese-bat-blamers protest WAY too much
As Yogi Berra might say, you can observe a lot just by watching what the mainstream Mockingbird mavens’ Mighty Wurlitzer is churning out. This week it was bats, bats, bats! The Washington Post, even more than The New York Times if that’s possible, operates at the discretion of the folks in and around the National... Read More
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
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
On June 23 the Biden Administration’s Justice Department erased more than 30 websites. Most of them were Iranian or run by allies of Iran. The most famous, Press TV, is the only international broadcaster in English that questions the official story of 9/11. By nuking Press TV’s main website www.PressTV.com, Biden ensured that all of...

Celebrated artist Stephen Bennett, “The Portrait Painter,” is a trained hypnotist. He says the media is hypnotizing us every day. He also says he wants to talk about dreams, metaphysics, and the underground world of New York City psychics who earn their livings by using precognition to obtain future winning lottery numbers. Sounds like a... Listen
Alternative media legend Ron Unz, the world’s most important writer on the origins of COVID, returns to Truth Jihad Radio to discuss his latest: “American Pravda: ‘The Truth’ and ‘The Whole Truth’ About the Origins of Covid-19.” In it he updates his analysis citing important new sources including Nicholas Wade’s work. As I wrote in... Listen
Alan “Doc” Sabrosky has been called “the most censored man in America.” I should know. I was the one who called him that. The former Director of Strategic Studies at the US Army War College (and NOT a “retired Marine officer” as Wikipedia still says after being corrected dozens of times) Dr. Sabrosky first gained...

The bad news is that two of the most powerful institutions in America have anointed me a “COVID super-spreader.” The good news is that I stand accused of super-spreading “COVID conspiracy theories,” not the actual disease. But the worse news is that the way things are going, “conspiracy spreaders” may soon be quarantined in COVID... 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
DC-based alternative journalist Ken Meyercord attended yesterday’s notorious pro-Trump election fraud protests—and says the mainstream media version is a gross distortion. Below is his written account. -KB What I Saw at the “Stop the Steal” Rally by Ken Meyercord (kiaskfm(at)verizon(dot)net) As several of my readers… well, one, expressed appreciation for my report on the pro-Trump...

Scientist Josh Mittledorf, (check out his website), author of Cracking the Aging Code (with Dorion Sagan), recently published “Ten Elements of the False COVID Narrative” (Part 1 and Part 2). How profoundly has science been corrupted by politics? Which elements of the mainstream COVID narrative—and which “conspiracy theories”—are demonstrably false? How do we sort through... Listen
E. Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars, recently appeared on False Flag Weekly News in a pre-election episode entitled Exposing Hoax Election—and “Borat’s Holohoax.” Now he’s back to offer his post-election views—which are diametrically opposed to those of previous guest Barrie Zwicker. Selected quotes from this interview: “The election was stolen from Trump, and the... Listen
Canadian media critic Barrie Zwicker warned us back in 2015: “Is Trump a Fascist? It’s Much Worse.” Ironically, Barrie’s article, originally posted at TruthAndShadows, was purged when that site was annihilated by Google for the crime of supporting 9/11 truth. So who’s really the Nazi, Trump or the internet oligarchs? Neither seems especially tolerant of... Listen
Ron Unz may be the most important figure in alternative media. His latest article “Glenn Greenwald Escapes His $100 Million Webzine” examines the massive pre-election suppression of news about Biden corruption scandals. Tonight we’ll discuss our respective takes on the ongoing train wreck of an election, as well as the censorship epidemic surrounding and feeding... Listen
The 2020 election results are disturbing to say the least—but not for the reasons trumpeted by the controlled corporate MSM. As I wrote in today’s article “Trump Didn’t Delegitimize this ‘Election’—We Did“: “The MSM, which is under orders to never, ever mention the fact that our voting machines fabricate votes rather than counting them, is...

It’s Not Who Wins—It’s the Chaos, Stupid
Will the 2020 elections change history? If they do, it won’t be because one or the other candidate won, but because they accelerated the polarization that brought down the American empire. Political partisans, including most of the mainstream media (MSM) are screaming from the rooftops that the fate of the known universe depends on the... Read More
MD and biowar expert Meryl Nass discusses her new article “The testing mess, lack of reliable data on Covid-19, and a hypothesis why.” Dr. Nass explains that media-driven panic over COVID-19 may have been based on two critically important wrong assumptions—and that the pandemic may be dying out, not flaring up. She begins by debunking... Listen
Peace activist David Swanson is the author of the new book Leaving World War II Behind. He debunks the standard misconceptions about the mythical “good war.” WAS IT ABOUT SAVING JEWS? “In reality, the U.S. and British governments engaged for years in massive propaganda campaigns to build war support but never made any mention of...

Nita M. Renfrew is the author of A History of the American Militia Movement: America’s Shooting Edge—completed in 1999, the first several chapters self-published in 2010. (Renfrew, an MSM insider, was shocked to discover that the militia movement was right about the Oklahoma City bombing, the Federal Reserve, and much more.) Today, as the militia... Listen
Diana Johnstone’s new book Circle in the Darkness: Memoir of a World Watcher is an lucid, courageous, elegantly-written, uncommonly well-informed reflection on post-World War 2 American and European history. The author traces her journey from Vietnam-era antiwar activism in the 1960s to a nearly five-decade-long career as one of America’s best alternative journalists. Unlike most... Listen
Attorney Thomas Willcutts disagrees with many of last week’s guest Gordon Duff‘s assertions about COVID-19. He argues that the “scientific consensus” supporting universal masking, lockdowns, Orwellian contact-tracing, and vaccines, and opposing HCQ, is questionable. Willcutts argues that propagandists “employ widespread control of media, fear, and anti-science ridicule, as well as pervasive control and policing of... Listen
Prof. William Woodward agrees with last week’s guests Anthony Hall and Gordon Duff that the “fireworks and fertilizer” explosion in Beirut was probably not accidental, and that Israel is the leading suspect. We’ll discuss the media coverup of evidence supporting the Israeli attack thesis—and the larger question of how powerful forces like the Israel lobby... Listen
Watch the video version of this interview HERE or listen to the audio HERE. Alternative media legend Vinnie Eastwood has joined a political party! But not just any party.

Ken McCarthy of BrassCheck TV has compiled a list of sources for people skeptical of official pronouncements about the COVID pandemic. He writes: “Right now I’m in the ‘Bernays/Gobbels/Fauci PLUS the structure of Nazi Science and why US science is starting to look frighteningly similar’ mode. Also, also, newish, it appears that the dreaded “Novo”... Listen
Pastor Randy Short is helping lead authentic black leaders’ pushback against the sold-out-and-infiltrated Black Lives Matter movement. Does he agree with me that white police should be ejected from African-American communities, in favor of self-policing by religiously based groups? Listen and see. Randy once faced a police officer busting into a university study area at... Listen

War on the Horizon?
I spent most of 2004 through 2006 blaming Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld for 9/11. As you can imagine, I got plenty of pushback. Strangely, the loudest, most hysterical shrieks came not from red-white-and-blue Republican patriots, but from seemingly insane Zionists screaming: “Why do you hate the Jews so much, you anti-Semite?”[1] At first, I...

Anthony Hall, Professor Emeritus of Globalization Studies (University of Lethbridge) and editor of American Herald Tribune, is the author of a brand-new six-part series on Wuhan virus “conspiracy theories” and free speech: [Complete article] [Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3] [Part 4] [Part 5] [Part 6] Who or What Started the Wuhan Coronavirus Epidemic?

Steve Brown has been involved with debates at the Pacifica network for many years. He writes that Pacifica members are now being “asked to vote for new bylaws that will allow Pacifica’s stations to be sold and the network to be broken up.” He describes this as a coup by “corporatists” who are trying to...

Jeff Brown, author of China Rising, discusses the coronavirus epidemic, which he argues looks like a US biological warfare attack on China, as explained in Jeff’s conversation with a retired US special services guy who goes by the pseudonym Uriah Heep. Jeff is a co-founder of the Bioweapon Truth Commission, which just got handed a... Listen
First hour: Leading Catholic intellectual E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars Magazine discusses the Super Bowl as a symptom of America’s exponential onrush of decadence and depravity. Then the conversation turns to the astounding exploits of #MayorCheat, who claimed victory in the calamitous Iowa Caucus WAY too early…unless he knew the system was rigged in... Listen
Judging by his photo, American Herald Tribune writer Michael Howard doesn’t look old enough to remember the 1960s and 1970s. But he seems fully up to speed on the propaganda “black legend” that’s been blasting out BS about Iran ever since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. In this interview we discuss the insanity of American foreign... Listen
Looking for non-MSM perspectives on the Middle East and more? Counterpunch and American Herald Tribune are worth checking out.

He’s the Che Guevara of the 21st Century
He was the 21st century’s most accomplished military leader—and a deeply spiritual man. Before they killed him, they didn’t even want you to know his name. After martyring him, they realized their mistake—and pulled out all the stops to stop you from finding out that he was a great man, a modern-day Che Guevara. An... Read More
Ron Unz, publisher of the Unz Review and author of the critically important American Pravda series of articles, has argued that the truth movement ought to recognize that its primary enemy is the mainstream media—and strategically work to discredit it by “swarming” its weakest links with alternative perspectives. Rather than limiting themselves to one or... Listen
First 30 minutes: Martin Hill a.k.a. “Grandpa Groyper” discusses the recent wave of “groyper” sightings at astroturf pseudo-conservative events.

Martin apparently caused a minor... Listen
First hour: Publisher John Leonard and translator Andrew Schlademan just brought out the late Dr. Udo Ulfkotte’s whistleblowing instant-classic Presstitutes Embedded in the Pay of the CIA: A Confession from the Profession: “Would you be surprised to learn that spies sit and write articles in newspaper editorial offices? Which are then published on op-ed pages... Listen
Dr. Cynthia McKinney got elected to Congress six times—and soon found herself under attack by the Israel lobby when she refused to sign the “pledge of allegiance to Israel” demanded of all representatives! The Lobby was able to eject Rep. McKinney from Congress twice, once in 2002 and again in 2006, by fabricating a primary... Listen
David Icke’s new book The Trigger really triggers some people…like The Washington Post‘s passive-aggressive book reviewer Ron Charles, who brags, shedding crocodile tears all the while: “I banned a book. Or at least I helped get it banned, which makes Banned Books Week a little awkward for me this year.” When Charles saw that Barnes... Listen
Barrie Zwicker, an independent documentary producer, writer, and political activist, was one of the earliest voices of the 9/11 truth movement—and remains one of the most influential. In this interview we discuss the run-up to the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 false flag event, which Barrie sees as not entirely atypical of the way the... Listen

As the 18th anniversary of 9/11 approached, the arrest and alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein made headlines—and raised questions about the credibility of official narratives. As Eric Rasmusen writes: “Everybody, it seems, in New York society knew by 2000 that Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell were corrupting teenage girls, but the press wouldn’t cover it.”...

Is the mainstream mind-control machine starting to worry about Marianne Williamson? Boston Globe: “It’s a very good bet Williamson won’t win the nomination. But her growing prominence in the Democratic field gives her the biggest platform she’s ever had. And as we now know all too well, an entertaining fringe candidate can sometimes catch on.”...

Linh Dinh, America’s greatest gonzo-journalist-in-exile, argues that “people just want to be left alone, so they can just eat simple food, drink cheap beer, and have conversations. But unfortunately life isn’t that unmolested. That’s been a constant theme in my writing and in my thinking.” I’m not so sure about the cheap beer—my life and... Listen
FFWN recently reported on: “NYT devotes top of front page to propagandizing for YouTube censorship” First half hour: Jonathan Revusky takes a nuanced and ambivalent view.

At the beginning of 2002, just a few months after 9/11, Thierry Meyssan wrote the biggest blockbuster in French publishing history, L’Effrayeuse imposture. Meyssan convinced French president Chirac, and the whole Muslim world, that 9/11 was a fraud. His book was the most important single factor leading to France’s refusal to join the US war... Listen
