On this edition James speaks with philosopher and esotericist Neil Kramer on the relationships between empire, education, and the modern psyche. Kramer argues that the world is at an important crossroads where people increasingly question their misplaced faith in traditional institutions and the experiences they seek to govern. Today human beings are commensurately discovering their own power as individuals, and using this empowerment to question the collectivist ideas and attitudes fostered by today’s mass media and schooling.
Neil Kramer’s research, writing and multimedia endeavors focus on spirituality, mysticism, and metaphysics. He explores the relationship between inner development and the many social and cultural factors that influence our everyday lives. Kramer emphasizes embracing truth and confronting the negative in a journey to transform self.
Terrorist Army Has Thrived Under US-NATO Foreign Policy and Sponsorship

For the sake of argument, let me concede at the outset that it is a plausible fact that the US does not directly supports the Syrian militants, it only sets the broad policy framework and lets its client states in the region, like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait and Turkey, do the actual financing, training and arming of the Syrian militants. For instance, although the US openly provides the American-made antitank (TOW) weapons to the Syrian rebels but it has strictly forbidden the aforementioned clients from providing anti-aircraft weapons (MANPADS) to the militants, because Israel frequently flies surveillance aircrafts and drones and occasionally carries out airstrikes in Syria and Lebanon and had such weapons fallen into the wrong hands, it could have become a long term threat to the Israeli Air Force. Lately, some anti-aircraft weapons from Gaddafi’s looted arsenal in Libya have made their way into the hands of the Syrian militants but during the initial years of the civil war there was an absolute prohibition on providing such weapons to the insurgents.
Have you noticed? The media has actually created a magical “news bubble” around us like a mythical rainbow unicorn where nothing else is happening in the world besides what would appear to be all-out WORLDWIDE anti-Trump propaganda spewing from every corner and crack of the planet, as if American citizens live in a tiny box where the only news that’s happening right now is how evil, horrible, and hated by the Establishment, world leaders, movie stars, etc. Trump is. (Which, by the way, just makes everyone want to vote for him more, so if the plot is to destroy the GOP so Hillary takes it, then bravo, it’s working.) The propaganda is so thick, if you watch it too long you might go blind.
[Thomas Potter, AKA “Amanda Reckonwith” and “Emmanuel Goldstein,” is a notorious online troll and associate of the well-known Dr. Judy Wood. For close to 20 years Potter has made it his life’s work to harass independent researchers, including 9/11 victims’ family members, for their important efforts to interrogate fraudulent “official” narratives of controversial events.
Potter’s actions have even placed him on the radar of local law enforcement in Olmsted Falls, Ohio where he resides. Potter’s tactics include attempts to frame and entrap individuals. These maneuvers in particular are akin to the online stalking and harassment employed by Lenny Pozner and his “HONR Network.” Major corporate media that facilitated James Tracy’s January 2016 termination from Florida Atlantic University may be seen as acting in concert with such forces.
Most recently Potter has taken aim at Tracy and Jim Fetzer via a series of online commentary and emails. The post below from MrThomasPotter.com is reproduced below in the hope that more citizen researchers will take action against such unlawful activity.-Ed.]

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”
Edward Bernays. Propaganda (1928) First two paragraphs of Chapter 1.
I am tempted to begin every future article I create with the above quote. Read it again… slowly. Let it sink in, let it permeate your consciousness. Read it not as a disconnected third party, but read it with the realization that YOU, and everyone you know, are one of the ‘masses’. That we constitute the manipulated, the molded minds, the taste formed, and the ideas suggested. Read it with the understanding that it was not written by some idealistic, isolated academic but from someone who actually DID IT, and then literally wrote the book, the above book, on how to do it. I highly recommend reading the book. It’s a short book, fast read. Here is a free PDF. Here it is for $9.50 at Powells.com*.
*Note: I refuse to do business with Amazon. Powells normally has what I’m looking for. I also recommend for harder to find manuscripts trying Abebooks and Alibris.
Prof. Jim Fetzer
The BBC has massively edited an interview with me to use me as an example of a “conspiracy theorist”, where they excluded most of the proof that I presented during a 40 minute interview and added a lot of poppycock psycho-babble about why people are predisposed to believe conspiracy theories regardless of logic and evidence, the significance of which they systematically ignore: for them, reason and rationality do not matter!
Here is a link where you can download the 18 minute program broadcast worldwide: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03kpvjf. If anyone finds it where I can embed it directly, please let me know. Contrast what they used with my previous, “Why I (Jim Fetzer) AM a “conspiracy theorist“, which I extracted from my pre-interview for the published BBC interview, because I made many more points about Sandy Hook, including on my banned book, NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015) and its thirteen (13) contributors.
Oberlin College’s Joy Karega Pokes 800 Pound Zionist Gorilla
By James F. Tracy
A professor at an elite liberal arts college in Ohio has been targeted as “anti-semitic” and labelled a “conspiracy theorist” for observing in social media posts that Israel was behind 9/11, the November 2015 Paris terror events, and the rise of the Islamic State. Jewish groups and major media outlets have joined forces to publicly assail Joy Karega, an assistant professor of composition, and her employer Obelin College, for voicing “kooky theories,” FoxNews reports. Yet Oberlin administrators have not capitulated to the mob-like calls for Korega’s de facto lynching. The entire controversy can be traced back to a single source.
Prof. Karega’s “hate speech”: “And I stopped letting folks bully me with that ‘you’re being anti-semitic’ nonsense a long time ago. Just a strategy to shut folks up …”

Since Obama has been in office numerous mass shooting events have occurred. Particular ones of note:
- Fort Hood – Fort Hood, TX Round 1 – Nov 2009
- Gabbie Giffords, Tuscon, AZ – Jan, 2011
- Batman Shooting, Aurora, CO – July 2012
- Sandy Hook Shooting, Newtown, CT – Dec 2012
- Navy Yard Shooting, Washington, D.C – Sept 2013
- Fort Hood – Fort Hood, TX Round 2 – Apr 2014
- Charleston Church, Charleston, SC – June 2015
- Umpqua College Shooting, Roseburg, OR – Oct 2015
- San Bernardino Shooting, San Bernardino, CA – Dec 2015
Most have substantial and significant evidence of false-flag events, with the primary goal of pushing the Gun-Control agenda. But so far this has not been working. If anything it is backfiring. Every time one of these events occurs there is a spike in gun sales. So instead of making people afraid of guns, it’s making people afraid not to own one. The gun-control propaganda is not working as intended. I attribute this to several factors.

[The corporate media have perhaps purposely failed to scrutinize the many anomalies surrounding the death of senior Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, calling commentators who’ve questioned the especially unusual circumstances surrounding his death “conspiracy theorists.” Yet there is no disputing the fact that several international and domestic political economic agendas will be hastened by Scalia’s removal from the highest court in the land.-JFT]
Or how mass media manipulates thoughts and opinions through popular culture

In the spring of 1993 Tim-Berners Lee releases what we know as the World Wide Web… royalty free. For all intents and purposes this is the ‘Internet’ for most people. The introduction of the WWW creates an explosion of data and information sharing across the globe. People of like interests could easily find one another and share data… and they did, at an unprecedented level. This sharing of information is a godsend for any persons whose interest lie in obscure or hard to find subjects. This is particularly important for those who research controversial subjects, like those of a conspiratorial nature. But regardless of what subject, be it obscure or common, this new ability to find and share information easily and quickly, rapidly accelerated research. And hence was a boon for harder to research subjects, especially those in which parties are not keen on the ‘facts’ becoming common knowledge. Such as acts of gross criminality at the governmental and political level; murder, fraud, theft, false-flags… also labeled as ‘conspiracy theory’.
