Traces of Reality


Guests: Lucy Steigerwald (1st Hour) and Marc Victor (2nd Hour)

Today on Traces of Reality Radio: During the first hour of the program, I am joined by Lucy Steigerwald, writer and contributor for, Reason, and VICE.  Lucy and I discuss her article regarding the MOVE bombing in Philadelphia in 1985: “28 Years Ago The Philadelphia Police Department Bombed and Burned a City Block.” We go over all manner of police state madness, the comparisons to Waco, the roots of police militarization in the drug war, the debate over drones, and much more.

In the second hour, I’m joined by Attorney For Freedom, Marc J. Victor. Marc and his law firm represent a variety of clients and most notably successfully defended Pastor Steve Anderson who was arrested at internal CBP/DHS checkpoint in Arizona in 2008.  Marc provides his perspective as an attorney who “cares more about liberty than about money” on the current state of the Constitution and of the country, as we seep deeper into the pit of tyranny while the public remains largely apathetic.  Also, Marc gives his take on the recent arrest of Cosme Cortez Jr. in Laredo, Texas (and others in the South Texas region) who have taken on the role of activists and resisted internal checkpoints.
