Academic freedom special with Professors James Tracy & Lance deHaven-Smith!

Fri.  4/12/13, 3-5 pm Central,  American Freedom Radio  (archived here.) Call-in: 218-339-8525

It's been seven years since I was witch-hunted out of the University of Wisconsin. Is the American academy starting to wake up? Let's ask two professors who are asking the hard questions and standing up for academic freedom!

First hour: James Tracy of Florida Atlantic University is featured in a brand-new Inside Higher Education story about a bizarre reprimand he got from FAU, where some administrators are apparently uncomfortable with the questions he is asking about Sandy Hook and other suspicious events. FAU repremanded Tracy for supposedly not disassociating his blog from the university. Yet Tracy's blog clearly states in boldface type: "All items published herein represent the views of James Tracy and are not representative of or condoned by Florida Atlantic University or the State University System of Florida. James Tracy is not responsible for and does not necessarily agree with ideas or observations presented in the comments posted on memoryholeblog.com." FAU: WTF?! If that isn't disassociating, what possibly could be?!


Second hour: Lance deHaven-Smith of Florida State University just published a terrific new book on "conspiracy theories" asking the hard questions about JFK, 9/11, and similar cases - and the causes and consequences of Americans' unwillingness to suspect high government officials of criminal wrongdoing. In 2006, deHaven-Smith coined the term "state crimes against democracy" (SCAD) to cover these apparent high crimes and cover-ups. In February, 2010, American Behavioral Scientist published a whole issue devoted to SCADs, reviewed here, featuring deHaven-Smith's article "Beyond Conspiracy Theory: Patterns of High Crime in American Government."

  1. Thanks for having Professor Tracy as a guest on your program.
    He should be commended for having the courage to question
    both the official account from the police and the theatrics used by media outlets like CNN. I also read how the clerks at Florida Atlantic are trying to censure Professor Tracy who dare question the nonsense which is the official account of Sandy Hook. I hear that the only traditional print publication that has covered Sandy Hook Truth is The Sovereign newspaper. Demand your Sandy Hook Truth today!
