American gulag meets ET! Jared Ball, Alfred Webre on Truth Jihad Radio

Truth Jihad Radio Sat. 4/10/10, 5-7 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (to be archived here.) Call-in number: 512-879-3805.

First hour: Colonialism & media scholar Dr. Jared Ball. A professor at Morgan State University and fellow alternative radio host, Dr. Ball's interests include "the development of alternative/underground journalism and cultural expression as mechanisms of social movements and political organization"...which is pretty much what we're doing here at Truth Jihad Radio! In a recent essay Dr. Ball criticizes Obama for his failure to take on the prison-industrial complex or reconsider the cases of American political prisoners.

Second hour: Alfred Webre, author of Memo to U.S. Congress: prima facie evidence that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld committed treason on 9/11. Also the author of the ET-studies classic Exopolitics, Webre is an activist working to prevent the weaponization of space and transform the permanent war economy into a sustainable, peaceful, cooperative, Space Age society, re-integrating with a larger, intelligent Universe society. He is International Director of the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS) and coordinates the Campaign for Cooperation in Space. Webre is also a noted alternative radio host.

Caveat: While his "Memo to US Congress" is generally excellent, some of Webre's 9/11 work seems to me to offer far-fetched hypotheses (notably allegations involving ETs and advanced technologies including time travel) without much empirical support. From where I stand, these claims get sliced to shreds by Occam's razor, which tells us to avoid needlessly complex explanations. Since we can explain 9/11 as an inside job without positing extraordinary technologies, why introduce such claims, which can be manipulated by our opponents to make us look like kooks?

That said, why am I inviting Webre? As a 9/11 activist, I am primarily interested in empirical evidence. But as a radio host, I seek interesting conversations and diverse perspectives -- even to the point of inviting people like Cass "cognitive diversity" Sunstein -- and Webre's perspective on politics is unusual and interesting to say the least! His book Exopolitics, if its claims turn out to be correct, will be viewed in retrospect as a major document in humanity's biggest Copernican revolution ever -- one that will make the astronomical heliocentrism-vs.-geocentrism debate look trivial by comparison. So even if there is only a .01 percent chance that Webre is correct about exopolitics, he is attention-worthy due to the monumental importance of his thesis in the event, however improbable, that it should prove correct. (The same argument, by the way, can be applied to many other topics suppressed by the consent-manufacturers who fabricate what passes for mainstream opinion.)
