Traces of Reality Radio Episode 104.2: “Masterminds Behind ISIS Mexican Cartel Grid Jihad Revealed! (or Why the Media Thinks You’re Stupid)”
On this edition of Traces of Reality Radio: Guillermo and Danny reveal the true “masterminds” behind the Islamic State/Mexican drug cartel plot to “take down a power grid” in the United States and kill 90% of the public.
We chronicle how and when this story began, picking apart the narrative and explaining the various reasons why it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. We illustrate how a product of government propaganda — that serves to further legitimize the “war on terror,” justify another war, and accept a greater loss of liberty — nevertheless found willing mouthpieces within some of the larger “alternative media” outlets.
Note: This segment begins with a discussion on waning public confidence in local police (a follow-up to the conversation with Hector Cubillos in our first segment). The discussion on the Islamic State/Mexican cartel plot begins at the 11:40 mark.
