In a continuation of our monthly roundtable discussions Guillermo of Traces of Reality, James Corbett of the Corbett Report and I joined up to take a broader look at conspiracy topics. This is a double post of both episodes, in part because I forgot to post the first episode, in part because the two episodes are essentially two parts of the same discussion, even though they were recorded weeks apart. Watch, listen or download here.
Aaron and I delved into one of our favourite topics of under-discussed conversation: the alternative media. In this - the final episode of Aaron Franz's alternative media interview series - we discussed the present and the future, the good and the bad of the alt media and my hopes for what the truth movement could turn into as it matures.

Once again I joined Guy and James of Smells Like Human Spirit to talk about some of my recent work, the response to my book, me putting forward the idea that Edward Snowden is a False Flag agent, and my general scepticism towards political celebrities including Russell Brand. This is a frank but friendly conversation with quite a lot of disagreement between Guy and myself, but we managed to avoid descending into verbal fisticuffs. Listen or download here.
In this edition of Traces of Reality Radio Guillermo Jimenez, James Corbett and myself tackled two of the most important spies of all time - Edward Snowden and Ian Fleming. We talked about my recent podcast on Snowden that accused him of being a false flag agent and discussed our concerns about the way the story has progressed and the impact it has had. In the latter half of the show I got a chance to indulge my Ian Fleming/James Bond obsession, talking about the misogyny inherent in the stories and its impact on the legal battle that came out of the Mark Stone situation and similar cases.

Julian of The Mind Renewed invited me on his show to discuss my book Secrets, Spies and 7/7. In this conversation we gave a broad overview of the 7/7 issue before delving into some of the more specialist areas of my research into the 7/7 bombings. We talked about the core problems with the official story, the bomb sites, the CCTV, the key witnesses before looking into the backstory of 7/7, both in the background of the alleged bombers and their network of contacts and the pre-empting of the bombings on various BBC TV shows. Listen or download here.
James invited me back onto his monthly cultural show FLNWO (flunwoe) to discuss Norwegian found footage mockumentary Trollhunter, a film is about a government conspiracy to cover up the existence of trolls. James and I discussed the metaphorical and satirical nature of the film, and its explicit subtext in mocking the socialist Norwegian government. We also talked about the metaphor of the trolls and what they might represent in this age of the politics of fear. Listen or download here.
Guillermo of Traces of Reality, James Corbett of the Corbett Report and I linked up for a three way roundtable discussion. We started off talking about Sibel Edmonds' recent editorial on the Paypal-Omidyar-Glenn Greenwald connections but the conversation also hit on Amazon's PR stunt about using drones to deliver consumables to consumers, ethical hacking and hacktivism, computer games and the Russian police's cover of Get Lucky. Listen or download here.
Pearse Redmond of PorkinsPolicyReview invited me on his show to talk about my book, Secrets, Spies and 7/7. In this two-part conversation we discussed the critical problems with the official story of the London bombings, including the gaping holes in the police investigation of the bomb sites, the suspicious Jaguar in the Luton station CCTV and how the 'intelligence failures' are likely the shadow of a black op. Listen or download here.
Guillermo of Traces of Reality and I took up the subject of the most recent episode of ClandesTime on the Russell Brand 'revolution'. We honed in on how pop culture and political revolution have become strange bedfellows, and how this is being used to confuse, divert and distract many politically active people. This typically wide-ranging discussion also touched on the irrelevance of ideological conflict and political messiahs, and the importance of ordinary people believing in themselves and making the difference in the world that they want to see. Listen or download here.
Alex G of Red Alert Radio invited me onto his show to talk about my book and how the war on terror is continuing to play out in the UK and on the African continent. We started by going over some headlines on everything from energy costs to soft drinks before getting into the tales of Samantha Lewthwaite and Anas Al Liby. We also discussed my research into the predictive programming of the Woolwich murder of Lee Rigby and how the strategy of tension has played out in Britain this year. Listen or download here.

In this talk Guillermo Jimenez of TracesofReality and BoilingFrogsPost and I discussed the psychological impact of 'flashpoint events' like 9/11 and 7/7, and the importance of investigating such events in their proper context. We chatted about my book Secrets, Spies and 7/7, in particular the role of predictive programming in conditioning the public to accept the official versions of such events and to respond in a way that is conducive to the interests of the security state. Listen or download here.
In the latest chat with the hosts of the Smells Like Human Spirit podcast we discussed my book, Secrets, Spies and 7/7 among other topics. We focused in on the 'intelligence failures' in the run-up to the bombings in conjunction with the predictive programming in the same period, and how this adds up to a strong case against MI5 for involvement in the attacks. In the second half of the discussion we talked about the scepticism around Edward Snowden, the supposed NSA-CIA whistleblower, and why his 'revelations' are anything but. We also looked at political apathy, its causes and consequences. Listen or download here.
Henrik of Red Ice Creations and I discussed my book Secrets, Spies and 7/7 in a highly inquisitive and informative conversation. In the first hour we discussed the three probable secret agents surrounding the alleged bombers in the years before 7/7, and a lot of the relevant history of the use of agent provocateurs by the British security state. We analysed how Britain has, for over a century, been fighting some kind of 'war on terror' and that 7/7 is perhaps just the most recent in a long line of such events. Listen or download here.
James and I talked about my new book Secrets, Spies and 7/7 in particular outlining the network of probable/known secret agents surrounding the alleged bombers in the years before 7/7. We looked into the activities of three men - Martin McDaid, Mohammed Quayyum Khan (Q) and Mohammed Junaid Babar, and how they likely played a role in engaging the alleged bombers in incriminating activity on behalf of the security services. Listen or download here.
Aaron of theageoftransitions.com and I had an in-depth discussion about my new book, Secrets, Spies and 7/7, focusing on the psychological dimension of the attacks and how the discussion was shaped after the event. We talked about how diversionary alternative conspiracy theories were 'seeded' just as much as the official conspiracy theory through predictive programming. Listen or download here.
In our latest discussion Keelan of WideShut.co.uk and I talked about my new book Secrets, Spies and 7/7 in the context of recent events. In typically wide-ranging fashion we looked at predictive programming and in general the BBC's role in exploiting violence and shaping debates, including their coverage of the recent murder in Woolwich. We examined their role in provoking and providing confirmation bias in the debate about 7/7 and about terrorism as a whole. Listen or download here.
In our most recent conversation on the Boston marathon bombings and the theories developing around it, Guillermo and I had a wide-ranging discussion on how we had developed in our thinking in recent weeks. Without ruling anything in or out we talked about how the context and reaction to the bombings was a better means of understanding the event than media coverage of the day itself. We looked at the links between the CIA and the uncle of the alleged bombers, and how different members of the Tsarnaev family are being exploited by different intelligence superpowers in the wake of the attack. Listen, watch or download here.
In this latest talk with old friend and colleague Keelan Balderson of WideShut, we analysed the various conspiracy theories that have sprung up about the Boston marathon bombings. In an attempt to explore and inquire without prejudice we outlined the reasons why the 'FBI-patsy/simultaneous drill/Craft guys' theories do not stand up to scrutiny. Listen or download here.
Guillermo of TracesofReality.com and I talked about the Boston marathon bombings, the conspiracy theories springing up around the attacks and in particular the relevance of a supposed 'drill' or 'exercise' being run near the start of the marathon. Listen or download here.
In our latest conversation James and I took a sideways look at Joseph Conrad's 1907 novel The Secret Agent, which fictionalises the real story of Martial Bourdin. Bourdin officially became Britain's first suicide bomber in February 1894 when a bomb he was carrying exploded in the park near the Royal Greenwich Observatory. However, Bourdin categorically did not commit suicide and the anarchist movement he was involved with as well as the theories spawned by his death provide a fascinating context for analysing Conrad's novel. Listen or download here.
Adam of the Glasgow Truth Group and I discussed the subtexts and contexts of a variety of recent films and TV shows, particularly those that focused on rebellion against the security state. We began by talking about the predictive programming in the lead-up to the 7/7 bombings, before moving on to the recent 'Bin Laden raid' movie Zero Dark Thirty. We also talked about Skyfall, Source Code and The Dark Knight Rises as examples of culture that declare the moral righteousness and omnipresence of the security services. Listen or watch here.
In this discussion James and I looked at the history and development of NATO's Operation Gladio, as well as its implications for today. We looked at how the plan of stay behind armies came from, and how it morphed into false flag terrorism and the strategy of tension. Listen or download here.
Following on from our previous conversations (1, 2) Aaron Franz of theageoftransitions.com and I talked about Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, or, The Modern Prometheus in the context of predictive programming, science fiction and transhumanism. We also discussed Shelley's husband, Percy Shelley, and her parents William Godwin and her mother Mary Wollstonecraft. Listen or download here.
In this wide-ranging talk Keelan and I discussed the recent BBC Conspiracy Roadtrip show on the 7/7 bombings. We chatted about our exchanges with Renegade Pictures, the production company behind the show, the topics and arguments broached in the programme and other topics. Listen or download here.
Keelan Balderson, filmmaker and producer of Wideshut.co.uk, talks with me about Samantha Lewthwaite - the widow of alleged 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay. We discussed how the story fits in with the shifting nature of the declared enemy in the 'war on terror', the lack of evidence supporting the media reports about Lewthwaite and whether the story is some sort of psychological operation. Listen or download here.
All round good egg James Corbett of corbettreport.com and I discussed the verdict in the Anders Breivik trial, the 22/7 massacre and the successes and failings of the official investigations to date. We talked about the Knights Templar organisation, whether it really exists and if so what it is, and whether there was a wider conspiracy behind the attacks in Norway. Listen or download here.
Following up on our previous conversation, Aaron Franz of theageoftransitions.com and I talked about other ways of interpreting the process of the unveiling of secrecy, the unfolding of truth. We looked at whether Aldous Huxley and George Orwell were warning us of what was to come, and whether such culture (literary, cinematic, musical and so on) could be an effective antidote to predictive programming. Listen or download here.
In this discussion with the hosts of the Smells Like Human Spirit podcast we talked about my documentaries, how I got into the whole topic of the security services and terrorism, and why the 7/7 case is particularly important to me. We also talked more generally about the climate of fear that is present in almost all culture and every aspect of our lives, the fearmongering around the Olympics (which have now concluded without any major false flag event), and why there are reasons to be optimistic. Listen or download here.
In this conversation with Aaron Franz of theageoftransitions.com we discussed some of the challenges and problems faced by the truth movement. The running theme was the use of disinformation, the idea that powerful institutions and groups are leaking or feeding information into the truth movement as a distraction and confusion technique. Listen or download here.
As we approach the 7th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings of 2005, Brit Dee of resistradio.com and I talk about my new 7/7 videos and reflect on some of the 'conspiracy theories' and alternative ideas about what happened. Listen or download here.
In a departure from our previous conversations, James and I discuss the current political landscape, both the mainstream and the fringe. We outlined some of our concerns and reservations with UKIP and the Ron Paul movement within the Republican party, then took some time to discuss different visions of an anarchist future.
Brit Dee of resistradio.com and myself joined Henrik Palmgren of Red Ice Radio to follow up on our prior conversation about the Anders Breivik case. We talked about the question of a wider conspiracy and a strategy of tension being at play, as well as new evidence from the trial. Listen or download here.

The first two episodes of Resisting the Terror radio are now available, now broadcasting every Sunday evening at 8 p.m. on ResistRadio.com. In episode 1 I looked at the Clayton Osbon Flight 191 incident and a Spooks production feature relevant to the question of predictive programming. In episode 2 I explored a recent BBC documentary including new material on Spy/Terrorist Junaid Babar, and a fake news broadcast produced for a terrorism training exercise that predicted 7/7.
In our latest conversation James Corbett of corbettreport.com and I discussed the question of predictive programming, particularly with regard to intelligence agencies. From Somerset Maugham and Leon Uris to reality TV shows like Big Brother, Border Patrol and Spy we went over not only examples of predictive programming, but also methods for analysing and understanding the phenomenon.
