On this week’s edition of Real Politik we are joined by Kris Millegan, publisher of that modest yet significant book imprint, TrineDay. Millegan discusses how in the late 1960s his father, a veteran OSS and CIA operative, explained to him that the world’s major institutions were greatly influenced by “secret societies.”
Author David Mathisen discusses his research on the hidden symbolic and metaphorical meanings of ancient texts. David and James examine the significance of this work for approaching and understanding modern propaganda and mind control techniques.
Mathisen was almost twenty years a “literalist,” reading the Old and New Testaments scriptures carefully and literally. Yet these texts remain some of the most exquisite crystallizations of esoteric teachings from ancient times.
Attorney Dan Siegel discusses his life’s work, from his early years as a civil rights and antiwar activist, to his legal career as a nationally-recognized labor law expert defending professors and athletic coaches under fire from university administrators.
A 1970 graduate of University of California Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law, Siegel was initially denied entry to the California Bar because of his free speech and antiwar activism. After successfully contesting this decision before California’s Supreme Court, he helped establish the National Lawyers Guild Military Law Project in Southeast Asia. In 1973 Siegel returned to the Bay Area to begin a community law collective representing workers and labor unions in employment discrimination, labor law, and civil rights litigation.
Talk show host, comedian, attorney, and political analyst Lionel is this week’s guest on Real Politik. He discusses his participation in the origins of contemporary talk radio, a long fascination with political conspiracies, the decline of broadcast journalism, the return of Howard Beale, how courtrooms can resemble comedy clubs, and much more.

[Professional title deleted]* James Tracy of [deleted]* University and Memory Hole Blog joined me for a conversation on the dread conspiracy theory, the label that shuts down and shuts up without fail. Behold the man who dared to question the official account of Sandy Hook, a man who simply and merely asked questions and then uncured the usual and predictable wrath of a feckless and impuissant mainstream media who don’t take kindly to those who question whether they’re doing their job.
James Tracy joins Professor Jim Fetzer on the latter’s internet radio program The Real Deal (Revere Radio Network). The two discuss some of the most recent developments on the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre event and the corporate news media’s broader treatment of government conspiracies and false flag terror.
Investigative journalist Jon Rappoport (jonrappoport.wordpress.com/) discusses his trailblazing research on the relationship between AIDS, mass media, and the medico-pharmaceutical complex, explaining how this project readily informs his most recent analysis and insights on the Ebola phenomenon presently sweeping the globe.
Before Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora and Sandy Hook, there was Australia’s Port Arthur Massacre
Andrew S. MacGregor, an experienced military and law enforcement officer, speaks with James Tracy on his research of the April 28, 1996 Port Arthur massacre. Born in 1947 in Yarraville, Melbourne, Australia, Mr. MacGregor served in the Citizens Military Forces of the Victoria Scottish Regiment and as Senior Constable with the Victoria Police.
Is Ebola a fraud? Is it being used by certain forces for broader political purposes? Fresno State University Criminology Professor Jason Kissner joins James Tracy on Real Politik for a dynamic discussion addressing the important series of articles the former has written for Global Research dissecting the Ebola phenomenon and its accompanying media frenzy.
