Interview with Dr. Jack Cashill about his book “Ron Brown’s Body”

Dr. Jack Cashill and I talk about his book “Ron Brown’s Body: How One Man’s Death Saved the Clinton Presidency and Hillary’s Future”. The book focuses on the April 3rd, 1996 plane crash that killed sitting Secretary of Commerce Brown and 34 others on a mysterious trade mission in Croatia. In this interview we talk about the lead up to the plane crash and the multiple fronts of trouble facing Brown before the crash including an ongoing Independent Counsel review and a complicated natural gas deal in Oklahoma that allowed Clinton mega-fundraisers Gene and Nora Lum to siphon off tens of millions of dollars from consumers by overcharging for natural gas. This natural gas theft was being abetted and protected by members of the Clinton white house including Chief of Staff Thomas “Mac” McLarty and Ron Brown as well as Ron Brown’s son Michael Brown.

Interview with Mike Campbell about his book Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last – Part II

In part two of my interview with author Mike Campbell about his book “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last” we briefly cover again the circumstances of Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan’s disappearance.

Mike then recounts the timeline of the official narrative and the mainstream acceptance of other ideas like the crashed-and-sank hypothesis and the Gardner Island or Nikumaroro-landing hypothesis and why they have no merit. Mike then talks about the work of TIGHAR and Ric Gillespie and the almost performance art-like expeditions that they’ve engaged in including using cadaver dogs to try and unearth evidence of Earhart on Nikumaroro many years after her disappearance. Mike also details the dearth of evidence for these ideas and analyzes why the media continues to support them despite their lack of substance.

Part II of Earhart Truth’s series on Japanese War crimes:

Interview with Mike Campbell about his book Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last – Part I

Part one of my interview with author Mike Campbell, a researcher who has written the definitive book about Amelia Earhart’s disappearance “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last” and also writes a blog at that contains articles full of pictures and reference materials about Earhart and her final flight. We discuss Amelia Earhart’s flying career and how she got to the point where she attempted her fateful flight in 1937, a world record attempt to fly around the globe.

We then get into the evidence that exists of what became to Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan after they took off from Lae, New Guinea and  disappeared according to the mainstream account. These include witnesses who saw Earhart come down near Mili Atoll in the Marshall Islands, witnesses on Saipan which had been occupied by the Japanese until the end of World War II and where Earhart was said by witnesses to have kept as a prisoner, and military personnel involved in the U.S. takeover of Saipan in 1944 who saw evidence of Earhart’s presence on Saipan including seeing her plane which was destroyed by the U.S. military and her briefcase and other personal effects.

Part two of this series examines other ideas that continue to be propagated by the mainstream media of what happened to Earhart and Noonan and will be released next Monday. Mike Campbell and I talk about the crash-and-sank theory and the Nikumaroro or Gardner Island theory both of which have been thoroughly debunked as well as the recent History documentary about a photo that is alleged to depict Earhart and Noonan on a dock in Saipan that was apparently recently discovered.

Episode 9: Dr. Graeme MacQueen on 9/11 truth and the Anthrax attacks

One of the leading lights of the 9/11 truth movement, Dr. Graeme MacQueen has a PhD in comparative religion from Harvard. He taught in the Religious Studies department of McMaster University based in Hamilton, Ontario for 30 years. MacQueen, now retired from his post at McMaster, was formerly the co-editor of the Journal of 9/11 Studies and published The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy in October of 2014, a book deconstructing the official story of the Anthrax attacks that followed closely the events of 9/11 and made a powerful case that the Anthrax attacks must’ve been concocted in the deep recesses of the military industrial complex of the American government.
Dr. MacQueen has written a pair of deeply interesting articles on the topic of 9/11 this year. The “Inside Job” Hypothesis of the 9/11 Attacks: JFK, 9/11 and the American Left which addresses the left’s reluctance to seriously consider issues like 9/11 and the JFK assassination and just this past week his article 9/11: The Pentagon’s B-Movie was published, a piece that illustrates the peculiar unreality and filmic nature of the 9/11 attacks.

Interview with Allan Favish about FOIA law and the Vince Foster case


I spoke with Allan Favish about his experience working on a FOIA suit, National Archives and Records Administration v. Favish, where Favish argued before the U.S. Supreme Court for release of photos depicting the death of Vince Foster.

We cover the details of the death of Foster and why the government’s underlying investigatory record is fatally flawed. We also discuss the media’s role in not responsibly covering the Foster case and how that spurred on the growth of independent media.
