QAnon
48:52

What is QAnon?

Who is Q?

Tommy spent this last week stuck in a Q-hole attempting to gain insight on the phenomenon that is Q. What he discovered entertained, surprised, and intrigued him. There's no way to discover every angle of Q in a week, but Tommy wanted to avoid the complete mind rot he was sure to experience had he followed every rabbit hole of the Q-sphere. So here's his introduction to QAnon.

Jun 12, 2020
Owning Culture
39:00

I've heard it said that the identifying characteristic of a conservative is someone that doesn't want to knock down a fence without knowing why it was put up in the first place. This philosophy of inaction not only prohibits conversation, it also limits creativity and solutions.it has become abundantly clear over the last few months that conservatives would rather give up the moral high ground to their ideological enemies than stand on principles. At no time in my life has it been more clear than now just how feckless and ineffectual conservatism actually is.

Jun 09, 2020
The Beauty of Anarchy w/Tom Burton
01:04:04

Tommy is joined by anarchist musician and poet Tom Burton. They discuss Tom's upcoming EP, his writing process, and the themes within his songs before diving into the nature of the state.

Jun 04, 2020
George Floyd and the Blowback Riots
32:31

Just as the boom bust cycle of the economy becomes inevitable through state intervention, so does the boom bust cycle of culture. Whether it be the death of Rodney King, Eric Garner, or George Floyd we're never far away from minority cultures reminding the dominant forces that they are tired of their streets being occupied and militarized by outaide forces.

May 28, 2020
Changing Strategies w/Pete Quinones

Apr 27, 2020
Escaping the Machine
34:21

A man's liberty must be an autonomous pursuit of independence. As libertarians and anarchists there is a tendency to depend on the collective to grasp theory and philosophy; so as they accept and achieve liberty so do we. But not all slaves wish to be unshackled.

Rather than searching for the most brilliant minds to draft arguments convincing the masses that liberty is to their benefit individuals must begin to act in pursuit of their own liberty; setting an example and living a life of self-sufficiency and self-worth.

Apr 23, 2020
Utilizing Counter-Economics w/John Bush

Tommy was joined by entrepreneur, activist, agorist, and podcaster John Bush to discuss how those effected by the financial crisis may utilize counter-economic strategies to ensure their family is taken care of.

Apr 13, 2020

Mar 23, 2020
Shortages and Delivery Lines with Gord
58:39

Donnie Gebert of the Direct Republic podcast and author of The Null Hypothesis of Politics joined Tommy for episode 101. Donnie's idea of a Direct Republic, decentralization down to the individual, was thought up within a mind trained and educated by the DOD to topple governments through peaceful revolution. When Donnie realized the enemy was domestic and not abroad he put his education to work at home.

Mar 09, 2020

Mar 02, 2020
A Candidate for Anarchists
32:30

When raising children you teach them voluntarism on the playground as you advocate conquest politically. It's time to take your lessons of civility seriously.

Feb 19, 2020
Isms and Regulatory Capture
01:00:47

In episode 98 Tommy takes on the idea that any one ism should be argued as superior over another. When people argue capitalism v socialism v communism v progressivism v fascism they are forgetting that they are arguing in favor of forced integration or forced segragation. In a society founded on liberty people would be able to choose the ism that best fits them and the coercion that enforces and props up their preferred ism would be null and void.

Feb 14, 2020
Incentives
44:43

The state, politicians, and bureaucrats are not, have not, and will not be incentivized to act in your best interest, or the best interest of the citizenry. The health, wealth, and power of the state directly contradicts the interests of a free people and must be combatted through revolutionary counter-economic methods.

Feb 11, 2020
Abortions For Liberty
34:31

In Episode 96 Tommy looks at the narrative around the topic of abortion. The class division of the US, not to be mistaken with the Marxist idea of class, has worked tirelessly to set forth binary choices that work to empower the state. How can libertarians change the conversation to create more freedom?

Feb 04, 2020
There's No Such Thing As Western Culture
31:41

There's no such thing as western culture.

Jan 24, 2020
Epstein, Eric Ciaramella, and Voluntarism
42:42

The Virgin Islands have filed a lawsuit againt Epstein's trust. When will his co-conspirators and those that kept silent be charged? 

Eric Ciaramella began planning to blow the whistle in 2017, and Trump believes the deep state when it's in his interest.

Jan 23, 2020
Invictus Mind
01:01:23

A few weeks ago Michael Korbel invited me on The Invictus Mind to discuss my life and how I became an anarchist.

Jan 20, 2020
Was Soleimani an Imminent Threat?
45:56

The Trump administration has backed off of the natrative that Soleimani was in Baghdad to plot attacks on four American embassies, but they haven't addressed the imminent threat he truly posed. While it's true the Iranian general can't be credibly linked to the deaths of Americans or a future plot; he is absolutely linked to plotting peace in Yemen without US support, threatening the world empire's dominance in the region.

Jan 14, 2020
As Needed For Pain
32:48

In Episode 91 Tommy looks at the death of Muhandis, and its potential meaning for US military in Iraq. Hassan Nasrallah called upon Hezbollah sympathizers to carry out attacks on US military personel and facilities in order to pressure the US to leave the region. What does that look like? Is it good or bad? And how long will it take?

Jan 10, 2020
War Pigs
01:01:04

"Gen'rals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction,
Sorcerer of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning,
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind,
Poisoning their brainwashed minds"

Jan 06, 2020
The Assassination of Soleimani and Iran's Response
28:50

Tommy discusses the events leading to the assassination of Soleimani and what Iran's response may look like. Rejecting the idea of this assassination leading to WWIII Tommy lays out what actions the US and Iran will probably take moving forward in this environment of rising tensions and chants for war.

Jan 03, 2020
Greta Thunberg is Right
50:29

Greta Thunberg is right, the world is indeed sick, but not for the reasons she'd have you believe. Greta, the 16 year old girl being used by government's and climate activists around the world is a perfect example of the cancer that infects the world. The cancer of appealing to authority.

Jan 02, 2020
Homeless Crisis
47:49

In this episode Tommy compares the homeless population of California, one of the wealthiest states in the US, to homelessness in the poorest state. The conclusion is simple to come to that homelessness is a result of too much government, not too little.

Jan 02, 2020
Mike Maharrey: The Defend the Guard Act
01:10:08

Mike Maharrey joins Tommy to discuss The Defend the Guard Act that is expected to be taken up in state legislatures in the 2020 session.

Letter to state legislatures

Dec 16, 2019
Scott Horton; American Primacy Pt 2
01:08:26

In part 2 of the interview Tommy and Scott discuss relations with Turkey, more Ukraine, Iran, Russia, and Syria.

Dec 12, 2019
Scott Horton; American Primacy Pt 1
01:04:28

In Part 1 of this 2 part interview Tommy and Scott address Ukraine, Russia, and Iran. US foreign policy for the last 100 years has left millions dead around the world, and there doesn't seem to be a slow down in the interventionism of the US. What is the goal? Why is Ukraine important? And is Iran really a threat?

Dec 09, 2019
Why I Hate The State
45:11

Everyone has a story as to what opened their mind - made them susceptible to the message of liberty. This is my story.

Dec 04, 2019
Greg Price The Normie View
01:22:50

In Episode 82 Tommy chats with his friend Greg Price about what average Americans are seeing when they look at the nature of politics, media, and culture. Greg is an independent that just wants government to take a more common sense approach. He's a majority of Americans; frustrated, jaded, and wants to be listened to.

Dec 01, 2019
Gas Leak
39:44

In Episode 81 Tommy discusses the latest email leaks revealing there was no gas attack in Douma. Again, like with WMD's, the US military machine is caught spreading lies in order to commit crimes in foreign lands, and arms are still being run into Iraq and Syria through US shell companies.

Nov 29, 2019
Free Assange
40:09

Tommy decides to look at the biggest stories on his mind, znd gives his opinion on them.

Nov 22, 2019
How Foreign Policy Affects Us All
44:32

In his debate with Dave Smith Nick Sarwark said people aren't worried about foreign policy because it doesn't affect their lives. Tommy decided it was time that this idea was taken on, and debunked for good. 

Nov 18, 2019
Jacob For Liberty
38:11

I'm endorsing Jacob Hornberger for president. So should you.

Nov 15, 2019
The Benevolent State
47:36

For thousands of years the fight for liberty was waged against dictators and tyrants seen as gods or descendents of gods. Today the benevolence isn't limited to a man and his lifetime, but to a system outlasting any one man's life and legacy. Can the ideals known as American exceptionalism and the system in place be utilized to bring about liberty?

Nov 07, 2019
The Deep State Coup
01:20:24

Tommy spent a week and a half scouring articles for links between the Ukrainian impeachment scandal and Trump Russia. This is what he found.

Nov 05, 2019
ZA Rape Culture
50:11

Rape in South Africa has become a societal norm. With a rape taking place every 26 seconds women are living in fear. Tommy dares to look at the social causes that may lead otherwise normal children to grow into such monsters.

Nov 01, 2019
Black Hats and White Hats
34:46

In episode 74 Tommy looks at the idea of a good and bad side to political theater. After Kennedy was assasinated Sam Giancana is credited as saying, "This proves, without a doubt, there are no white hats or black hats. It's all a game, and it always ends the same - death."

Oct 26, 2019
Girl's Gone Mild
44:57

Tulsi.... If she were any more of a disappointment I'd have to call her son.

Oct 19, 2019
The Red Pill Era
45:33

In Episode 72 Tommy takes a deep dive into the modern politic of America. The conservative elements of society have coopted the term red pill in an effort to propagandize the public into their idea of order and justice while coopting the progressive idea that government is all powerful, giving people access to inherent rights. As they giveth, so shall they take away.

Oct 15, 2019
Reactionaries of the Left and Right
50:55

In Episode 71 Tommy digs into the political reactionaries of the left and right. As new problems pop up in society neither Conservatives or Progressives interest themselves with causes. The typical response from both groups is to beg the state for solutions with no reflection of how this reaction has failed in the past.

Oct 10, 2019
Et Tu Brute?
30:33

In Episode 70 Tommy once again looks at the Ukrainian story. Given all the crimes the US has committed, and the treatment of whistleblowers what makes this different? Quid pro quo? Or business interests?

Oct 03, 2019
Friends With Fascists
33:04

In Episode 69 Tommy digs into the CIA obsession with fascists since the defeat of NAZI Germany in WW2. Every time the CIA intervenes in another country's affairs it does so on behalf of a fascist insurgency.

Sep 26, 2019
Trump, Biden, Saudi Arabia, and the Intelligence Community
38:04

In episode 68 Tommy looks at the latest news surrounding Hunter Biden, Trump, and the deployment of troops to Saudi Arabia to defend against the threat that is Iran. Tommy speculates that given the history of business interest and intelligence interest merging that the reason Trump is once again being threatened by leaks has to do with his unwillingness to stick to the protocol of National Security laid out before him upon taking office.

Sep 23, 2019
Anything for National Security
48:15

In Episode 66 Tommy looks at the National Security State. Fear is a powerful emotion. The National Security apparatus knows this better than anyone. Their goal is to keep citizens in fear in order to flex their power without question.

Sep 17, 2019
Bin Laden's Victory
36:04

On the 1 year anniversary of Year Zero, episode 65, Tommy looks at the effects of 9/11. Given all the lies told by the US government surrounding 9/11 It's easy to see why the truther community still grows and thrives. So much so that one must wonder if the conspiratorial angles were intentionally inserted to keep that truth secret. While these narratives are being debated Bin Laden is victorious peacefully in his grave.

Sep 12, 2019
The Afghanistan Plan
34:48

In Episode 64 Tommy looks at the negotiations between the Taliban and the US. In light of the negotiations breaking down, and Trump's desire to keep 9,000 military personnel in Afghanistan is it possible that Trump's rhetoric on the campaign trail was another politician talking peace for votes?

Sep 10, 2019
Collapse for Liberty
48:52

 9

Sep 05, 2019
Mob Tactics
36:57

In Episode 62 Tommy looks at the assassination of Frank Olson, a CIA scientist killed in 1953. Eric Olson, Frank's eldest son, has spent the last 66 years searching for answers. In 1994 forensics showed that Frank was murdered, and to this day the CIA has escaped justice.

Sep 03, 2019
Jeffery Epstein
29:48

In Episode 61 Tommy gives an overview of updates in the Epstein death. Was he murdered? Did he commit suicide? Either way the system is either grossly incompetent or extremely corrupt. 

Aug 15, 2019
The Political Crusades
45:10

In Episode 60 Tommy looks at the evangelical left and the evangelical right fighting for dominance over the politics of the US. In his assessment he determines that though people are using the same words they're speaking different languages. He encourages all anarchists to distance themselves from the binary thinking of statists, and ally among themselves to combat present and future tyranny.

Aug 13, 2019
No More Compromise
42:27

In Episode 59 Tommy explores the idea that there is no true left in America. He contends there is a left that is growing and underrepresented in the narrative. But the left is not what you might expect.

Aug 10, 2019
Communication Breakdown
40:48

in Episode 58 Tommy looks at the mass shootings in America. He examines possible causes. Tommy ventures into the art of communication; the left and the right talking past each other and never being able too get on the same page, and how this contributes to violence used in advancing the control of the state.

Aug 05, 2019
Immigration Underground Railroad
49:42

In Episode 57 Tommy takes another look at immigration. The caricature of libertarians is that they are open borders. Tommy describes private property borders, property attained via natural law, and the government's land monopoly before spending a few minutes on the immigration underground railroad attempting to nullify federal immigration policy and help those that are in need of assistance.

At the 16 minute mark there's some static that lasts the rest of the podcast due to a call that rings in. I hope that doesn't ruin the fun.

Aug 01, 2019
An Apartheid Story
01:14:58

In Episode 56 Tommy talks to his wife. AS boring as that may sound, they are truly interesting and entertaining together. Beatrix, Tommy's wife, was born in South Africa under apartheid and she witnessed the changes that occurred as a teenager, durimg her most impressionable years. Tommy and Beatrix discuss the way that the fall of apartheid changed the country, and the pros and cons that followed.

Jul 29, 2019
Why Anarchy
01:07:22

In Episode 55 of Year Zero Tommy gets into his reasons for becoming an anarchist.

Government operates as if it owns you and your existence is for its advancement. Tommy disputes this claim by decrying self ownership and natural rights. If liberty were the original state of nature any construct claiming dominion is illegitimate and criminal.

Jul 25, 2019
True Believers
47:09

Sorry for the delay. I had issues uploading last week, and i didn't realize this episode had not uploaded until Saturday.

In Episode 54 Tommy looks at faith in the state and other ideologies. Blind subservience to any ideology is dangerous, and given the wedge within the nation I think the canyon between the belief systems is a strong indication that it's time the different factions divorce before there's serious violence on the strets.

Jul 21, 2019
Moralism of the State
47:02

In Episode 53 Tommy takes a page out of Thaddeus Russell's book, and looks into the culture's construction from a less than moralistic view. Prohibition is the policing of the body in order to serve the state. If you think you're an individual, or owner of self you want to tune in.

Jul 11, 2019
Mr Jack
34:49

In Episode 52 Tommy recounts events and people from his childhood. The Democratic party is obsessed with convincing voters that they'd pursue reparations, but what would the results of these reparations do to the country? 

Jul 08, 2019
Liberty at Home or Life Abroad
37:44

In Episode 52 Tommy takes a look at the American Revolution for Independence Day. As time has passed, and presidents and Congress violated the constitution America became an empire. Modern conservatives defend these actions, but is that the bar they should be aiming for?

Jul 04, 2019
