The CIA and Hollywood episode 4 Enemy of The State

Good friend Adam joins us to discuss the 1998 action thriller Enemy of the State, and its unprecedented ‘revelation’ of surveillance technology.  We talk about how the film has a rogue’s gallery of technical advisers – including Chase Brandon and Marty Keiser – and how this led to one of the most spectacular depictions of the NSA and the spy state in general.  Following from this we analysed the likely purpose in the CIA masking themselves as the NSA in the film, and how this has scuppered the progress of any serious dialogue about mass surveillance.

The Bridge with Kira featuring Pearse Redmond and Tom Secker

On Saturday, February 21, Tom Secker and I had the great pleasure of joining Kira Young on her live radio show The Bridge.  We started out with a discussion of the recent surge of neo-nazism within the alt-community and what this means for alternative media.  Later on, we explored the fascination the Left has with Vladim Putin and all things Russian.  We then moved on to the subject of cults and their connections with the intelligence services.  I went into some detail regarding Scientology and various cultic connections to the CIA.  In particular, I discussed psychic research being conducted by the CIA at Stanford Research Institute, headed by two high-ranking Scientologists, Harold Puthoff and Ingo Swann.  I related how the CIA was funding this research while the FBI was deeply involved in infiltrating and arresting high-ranking members of the cult.  Later, we explored the LSD movement and the CIA orchestration behind it, as well as the interesting Scientologists who were part of that movement.  We rounded off the conversation by looking at the current drug culture within the alt-movement.  All three of us gave our thoughts on the popularity of  DMT and ayahuasca, and how the promotion of these power psychoactive drugs may be part of a much wider plan to derail the alternative community.  We also reflected on how cannabis culture has changed from a movement promoting personal freedom into a cult of getting stoned all the time.  Finally Tom and I talked about our new podcast series The CIA and Hollywood, and what to expect from it.
