This week on Middle Theory, we examine the recent concern over deportation "roundups" of undocumented workers in America, and the media's coverage of this contentious issue.

This week on Middle Theory, we pick up where we left off last week with a simple question: if there is no basement at Comet Ping Pong, the infamous epicenter of the silly “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory, then why did the restaurant’s owner describe using the basement for storage in an interview only months ago? Then, moving on to bigger better things (that aren’t related to the Fake News epidemic), we consider how DNA test might lead to the discovery of the perfect ceremonial Dad Juice. Meanwhile, the big news this week has to do with whether Russia was indeed involved with swaying the recent the U.S. election. As Obama defends his handling of Russian meddling ahead of election, telling the press that, “We handled it the way we should have”. However, there are conflicting reports that involve a secret CIA assessment that says Russia was trying to help Trump win, compared with Harry Reid’s allegations that the FBI covered up Russian influence on Trump’s election win. All that notwithstanding, there is the claim of an ex-British ambassador, now a WikiLeaks operative, who claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails, but that they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers. If true, what would this make of the CIA’s assessment that Russia was involved?

This week on Middle Theory, we showcase the scandal that has erupted following the release of inflammatory taped remarks by GOP candidate Donald Trump. As we kick things off this week, we take a moment to highlight Bell Pottinger, a company in the spotlight for creating propaganda videos for US in Iraq. Then we turn our attention to the WikiLeaks “October Surprise” (or lack thereof), highlighting Vanity Fair’s Six Most Explosive Things the latest email leaks have taught us. Clinton campaign manager John Podesta has spoken out about his involvement in the leaked emails, decrying Russian hackers and ‘phoney emails’ appearing in the leaks.The emails also show that Podesta corresponded with and met Delonge of Blink 182, to talk about aliens. Is there a deeper reason this should be of interest? After hours of prayer (and several glasses of hard liquor), Ted Cruz decided to make an ill-timed endorsement of Donald Trump, just hours before audio of Trump recorded having an extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005 surfaced; over the course of the days that followed, similar remarks from Trump on the Howard Stern Show, discussing his daughter and Miss Universe “walk ins”, cast the GOP candidate in a negative light. A former Miss Arizona, Tasha Dixon, says Trump ‘just came strolling right in’ on naked contestants, and the latest bombshell in the unfolding mess claim Trump may have used “THE N WORD” among other offensive terms, on the set of “The Apprentice”. Democrats are purportedly offering millions for leaked audio of these statements, or even transcripts that may confirm this, while independent groups seek funding for the $5 million legal penalty that would result from the release of any such audio.

Donald Trump: Meltdown appeared first on Middle Theory.
This week on Middle Theory, we kick things off on a particularly weird morning: First off, Andrews base went on lockdown this morning, after a mistaken active shooter report on-site. Elsewhere, a naked idiot model guy took Times Square by storm as he danced around naked, showing his ass (literally) and demanding a meeting with Trump… shortly afterward, hilarity ensued. Elsewhere, in “real news”, we report on the Istanbul Terror Attack that left 44 dead, and more than 250 injured. Meanwhile back at home, the TSA suggests moving checkpoints to airport entrances, as well as vehicles outside. We explain why we don’t think this would be effective. We also recap some of the recent developments with the ongoing saga of the “Brexit” affair in the UK, and why the international implications are among the greatest concerns raised by the situation. Finally, we help examine the “real news” as it relates to the issuance of the recent Benghazi report. While one media outlet has reported that “Republicans ‘blew their chance’ to attack Hillary over Benghazi“, elsewhere we see reports that the Benghazi report ‘shows Clinton put her own ambitions above fidelity to the law’. As the politicization ensues, we try to report the facts… without as much bias.

This week on Middle Theory, we look at electromagnetic pulse weapon (EMP) attacks, and whether nations like North Korea are a legitimate concern for such threats. It seems that new regulations are coming down the pipe from the Transportation Security Administration, who are changing some of the key requisites for security screenings in relation to domestic travel. Micah tells us about his own recent experiences with the TSA, and we also look at some recent incidents that may raise concerns. We also look at how countries in Canada and Mexico are cashing in on the lack of regulations about water extraction from the ground... does this essentially constitute a sort of "filtration tax" in some countries? Then we look at the frightening issues related to the potential for an electromagnetic pulse weapon (EMP) attack, and whether certain "rogue nations" like North Korea and Iran should be considered more threatening than they presently are. Could EMP attacks be the single greatest threat to America, and other nations, existent today? We say YES.

This week on Middle Theory, we remember the tragic accident that claimed the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, two decades ago, as well as conspiracy theories that have lingered since her death. We kick things off by looking at the devastation occurring in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and take time to offer details on how listeners can donate or contribute otherwise to the relief effort, in addition to learning how to spot scams that may be seeking to profit from the disaster. Then, shifting our attention to what's going on in the news, we ask, what’s going on with Martin Shkreli and Wikileaks? "Pharma Bro" Shkreli recently posted a picture of a memory stick that he claims has Hillary’s deleted emails on it, roughly coinciding with an incident where Wikileaks' website went down, with one group claiming to have hacked it (Wikileaks denies any hack occurred, and their website is back up). What connection could Shkreli have to any of this? Meanwhile, a CBS News Miami host hints that former employee of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Imran Awan, could be the subject of a larger investigation. Allegations from conservative outlets already assert that Awan is being investigated for selling data to foreign governments; meanwhile, an online conspiracy theory suggests that a man named Mohammad Akram Awan, a resident of Maryland, could be the father (or uncle) of a man also named Imran Awan. Is there any connection here at all? To be clear, Mohammad Akram Awan is the name of a Pakistani air force pilot accused of being a Mossad double agent and jailed following the alleged assassination of Pakistani dictator Muhammad Zia ul-Haq, along with 33 others, including US Ambassador Arnold Raphel. Finally, as we mark 20 years since the tragic car accident that claimed the life of Princess Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi al Fayed, we look at her life and influence on British culture, along with the numerous conspiracy theories that have surrounded her death for decades.

This week on Middle Theory, we kick things off by remembering that most famous ancient Chinese curse (which may or may not actually be an authentic, ancient Chinese curse, but nonetheless... ). Our discussion moves from talk of Oliver Stone's recent series of interviews with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, to government surveillance, domestic spying, and the "War on Terror". We also highlight a piece of "secret audio" produced by Alex Jones of InfoWars, who secretly recorded calls he had with Megyn Kelly... the latter of whom is in the midst of losing sponsors due to fallout after the announcement of the interview. The focus of our discussion, however, is on the shooting incident involving members of Congress at a Washington baseball field earlier this week, where a disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporter took lethal action against a member of Congress and several staffers. Fortunately no one was killed, except from the shooter himself, James Hodgkinson. What do we learn from a terrible incident like this, and how does media spin and "contrived controversy" in American politics contribute to these problems?

This week on Middle Theory, we delve into the concerning exchanges between Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which some have already compared to the Cuban Missile Crisis. We don't have to tell you how screwed up the world is right now. We're all sick of politics, prima donnas, pyramid schemes, and the poor judgement often used by world leaders. So to kick things off, The Doctor and The Professor begin by dishing on all the bullshit going on in the world, before launching into an in-depth analysis of the North Korean issue. NoKo leader Kim Jong Un is a different kind of "leader." In his world, threats of war amount to chest-beating, with a complete disregard for the consequences of his statements or actions. Arguably, this level of ego, paired with a lack of judgement, might only be remotely comparable to that of U.S. leader Donald Trump (whose actions still don't compare with the maniacal threats and actions of Kim). Are we really on the brink of World War III, and what have the lessons of history taught us about similar conflicts, and how to avoid them, through bilateral agreements and cooperation?

This week on Middle Theory, former presidents (and presidential candidates) are speaking out against Donald Trump... the latest in a long succession of contests to "Trumpism." We begin with discussion that includes updates on the sordid Harvey Weinstein situation, with continuing allegations of misconduct surfacing, in addition to a look at the broader issue of human trafficking in America, and other parts of the world; it is arguably one of the greatest problems existing in the world today, and yet, one that so many are willing to turn a blind eye toward. Later in the program, we also hear what the latest from former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama say about Donald Trump, along with Senator John McCain's assertions about "half-baked nationalism" under the current administration. Finally, we also review the bizarre interview featuring security guard Jesus Campos on the Ellen show, and the controversy it has managed to arouse.

Bush: Bigotry, white supremacy are “blasphemy” against American creed “Half Baked Nationalism”: McCain's full speech at Liberty Medal ceremony
On this edition of the program, we look at what ratings tell us about who Americans are paying attention to in the media, and how controversial reporting along partisan lines keeps us divided, and may mislead the public. 
This week we look at how the tech industry is reshaping the military-industrial complex, Jeffrey Epstein's bizarre transhumanist beliefs, and the recent riots in Hong Kong which China has compared to "terrorism." 
Stop the press… hold the phone… or do whatever else is necessary, because we have breaking non-news to kick off this segment: Budweiser, the easily-disputed “King of Beers”, has realized that as trends involving consumption of their brand continue to dwindle, desperate measures may be needed. Hence, just in time for the Fourth of July, the famous Belgian multinational company’s American-style lager will be changing its name… to America. Seriously, we couldn’t make this stuff up. With that behind us, it’s on to some discussion about secret societies, and that “other” famous multinational company known as the Illuminati. Micah and McNonymous have noted a number of unusual synchronicities lately… could there be any connection between this infamous group and Budweiser’s latest publicity stunt? We then break down our analysis of the latest U.S. primaries, and whether it’s legitimate at all that some outlets are playing up the possibility that Donald Trump might pick Ted Cruz as his running mate, a man who Trump says “agrees 100% with everything he says”. Seems the rest of that sentence should have read, “everything he says about pizza.” Oh wait, that’s not right either, since Cruz obviously wouldn’t like New York Style pizza, right? But we digress… A recent risk assessment report issued by a joint project with Oxford University indicates that among the greatest threats to humanity in the coming five years, pandemic outbreaks and nuclear war remain at the top of the list. However, among the runners up are A.I, as well as “geo-engineering in response to climate change.” McNonymous gives us a breakdown of just why this controversial subject has become one of such concern, and gives us an example of what happened in Uzbekistan within the last few years… applied to larger areas, geo-engineering could indeed be a greater concern than many realize. On the subject of turmoil elsewhere in the world, we do a special segment this week on Venezuela, “the land of 500% interest”, and the trouble Venezuelans are having obtaining food and medicine in the midst of the country’s current economic upheaval. There is also the matter of the Brazilian president’s impending impeachment, which will be a historic end to what was already considered a historic presidency, of sorts. Finally, on the subject of Donald Trump’s potential running mates, there is one name that’s been tossed around in certain circles as a sort of “Anti-Sarah Palin”. We examine the campaign ad that helped get her elected, which ranks only second among the most uncomfortable campaign ads we’ve ever found; in fact, one of them was so bad that your friendly neighborhood hosts have to provide “live commentary” just to get the point across.

May the Fourth be With You… Always. After all, this week you may need it.  That said, our story begins a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… A smashing win amidst Indiana’s GOP primary has led to Donald Trump’s chief competition, Ted Cruz, swiftly withdrawing from the race, followed by a similar announcement from John Kasich the following day; this leaves Donald J. Trump as the presumptive 2016 GOP nominee. We begin our breakdown of what took place Tuesday night (following a brief acknowledgement of the presumptive Star Wars Day slogan, “May the Fourth be with you”), with an analysis of Cruz’s departure, and the quick change in demeanor we see in Trump afterward. Trump has, for instance, toned down his rhetoric almost instantly, and GOP party leaders are now beginning to cozy up to him in advance of the ensuing election. In addition to the surprise capture of the GOP by Trump, we examine some of the unusual claims that have peppered the campaign trail, which include the insinuation that Ted Cruz’s father had been involved with the JFK assassination, as well as a “behind the scenes” look at what some members of the media have agreed to do with Trump as far as asking “hard questions” on camera. We then examine recent developments in the world of unelected bureaucrats are spiking taxes, as well as the CIA director claiming information that may link Saudi Arabia to 911 could be “inaccurate”, along with President Barack Obama’s admission of failure to even read the relevant portion of the aforementioned document.

This week on Middle Theory, we cover the testimony given by former FBI director James Comey, given before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8, 2017. Kicking things off, we pick up where we left off last week with an update on the Evergreen State College situation, which includes the release of a 911 call audio where a purported gunman (later deemed to be not credible) threatened to visit the campus with a weapon. This brings us to further discussion about social justice issues and race relations in America; to contrast this, we take a look back to the 1990s, and the famous Waco Texas, Ruby Ridge, and Oklahoma Federal Building incidents. Then, we turn our attention to Megyn Kelly's interview with Vladimir Putin, and how the views between "East and West" continue to contrast and conflict. However, the big news of the day involves the testimony given by former FBI director James Comey, given before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8, 2017. We give a complete breakdown of the highlights, and the big takeaways from the hearing, as well as some of the analysis that followed. Has James Comey fundamentally changed the playing field as it relates to the ongoing controversies with President Donald Trump?

This week on Middle Theory, we look at the upcoming French election, and what it means for the rise of populism in France, and the rest of Europe. We begin this week's dispatch with a bit of discussion in relation to Bill Nye "the Science Guy's" new Netflix series, which discusses climate change (of course) and a number of other science-related subjects. We also look at news of a German soldier arrested prior to committing “false flag” terror attack in Austrian airport while posing as Syrian refugee, and discussion of how Google has authorized contractors to rate InfoWars as “low to medium” quality for search result purposes. Dr. Theodore Postol (MIT Professor, Nuclear Engineer, and debunker of bogus Military claims regarding Patriot Missiles and Air Defense systems) has made a pretty convincing analytical argument that the Syrian air force did not drop the chemical weapon. McNonymous gives us the details, and we also examine the recent controversies at Fox News, and how a recent allegation against Sean Hannity was, as the pundit himself has said, was intended as a "kill shot". Finally, we examine the upcoming election in France, where candidates Emanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen are neck-and-neck. What will the outcome be, and what will that mean for the political atmosphere in France, and the rest of Europe?

This week on Middle Theory, we discuss the ongoing "system purge" that continues in the wake of the Weinstein scandal, with the controversy shifting to the world of politics. Roy Moore has become one of the most controversial characters in American politics, with a contentious Senate race that is rife with allegations of sexual misconduct. Meanwhile, new allegations have similarly arisen in relation to Senator Al Franken, as well as Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallonne, in relation to existing charges dating all the way back to 1986. The result has been a continued "system purge" with the revelation of numerous accounts of alleged misconduct among members of Hollowood and government. What will be the outcome of such widespread shift toward vocal awareness of these long "hidden" issues in society?
