Trump Has COVID/The Debate!!! 10/3/2020
In this brief audio track I talk about some of the Trump/Biden debate fallout and about Trump testing positive for COVID-19. -Don't fall for the 'both-sides-ism" argument about that dumpster fire of a debate. The blame falls on Trump. -Trump can kill people by just opening his mouth now. It's a sign. -Biden accurately describing Antifa as an idea blew my mind. -Trump's own FBI is contradicting him on Antifa bring violent. -No matter what Trumps cult of personality will never go away. -I'm not a Biden fan, but I understand he's better than Trump. He hasn't had to do much other than not be Trump. He and the Democrats lack a killer instinct, and it will always lead to losses. I apologize for my hair.

Episode 11-COVID-19 Conspiracy Theories
In this episode Christian discusses the various COVID-19 conspiracy theories that have recently sprung up. From microchips and "the mark of the beast" to claims that 5G towers are spreading the virus. We get to the most popular wrong ideas surrounding the global pandemic. Is Bill Gates planning on using COVID-19 vaccines as a Trojan Horse to implant microchips? Was the Corona Virus created by the Chinese government or the US government? Is it a plot to kill Baby Boomers. Of Course not, but check out the show anyway!

Episode 10-An Interview With Tanzeem Shaneela
Tanzeem Shaneela or "Tanz" is a social psychology Phd. student in the CUNY system. Tanz first made it onto my radar way back in 2012 when she wrote the piece, "The Illuminati and Why It Spoke to Me". I came across the article on the old Kasama website. It's a good piece and I think Tanz' story is one that is shared by many different people across the country. Tanz gives us insight into her own intellectual and political growth. She goes into detail about the affect of Illuminati theory on herself and those around her. She explains why it is ultimately insufficient in describing the ills of the world, and how this dead end led her to a greater understanding and critique of capitalism. So here it is, folks. My interview with Tanzeem Shaneela, Scholar, Activist and lifelong enemy of the Illuminati.

Episode 9-Conspiracy Theories Part 1
Welcome to the first episode of a multi part series on Conspiracy Theories! In this episode I set the tone for what's to come. It is a bit plodding at points but this is necessary to get the point across. I contend, just as I did the first time I gave this presentation that conspiracy theories are just lazy political science. What will follow over the next few episodes will support that point. This episode provides a quick primer on the depth of political science, a number of questions to ask when you think you've come across a supposed conspiracy theory and it examines some of the holes in conspiratorial arguments. It also touches on some of the more widely known conspiracy theories. There will be a lot to cover in the future. If there are topics you'd like me to explore, reach out! I am here for the public. Feel free to email us whenever at PerezPodcast@gmail.com. And as always we are available on Itunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud and New Jersey Revolution Radio!

Episode 8-Ron Rivers from OurSociety.org
Ron Rivers, the founder and Executive Director of Our Society defines the project as a Free and open election campaign platform and a social movement. Our Society is something for all American citizens but with a focus on younger voters. Our Society is aware of the role technology plays in our everyday lives and is a project that hopes to make it easier for the electorate to cut through the propaganda and connect directly with candidates and the issues. Oursociety.org aims to strike a blow against the power of money in politics. It's a mechanism for voters to educate themselves on the issues, and also serves to empower everyday people to run for office. Nowadays where it can cost tens of thousands of dollars to run for a simple local election, or where the overwhelming majority of lawmakers in the US are either businessmen or lawyers, Our Society seeks to bring power back to the voters. Democracy works best with an informed public. OurSociety.org is about ensuring we have the best democracy possible. From the OurSociety.org website: "Our Purpose is to empower people to engage in their local communities and beyond by removing the financial barriers associated with running for political office." Democracy is about people coming together to discuss all the issues. That's the core of Our Society's mission.

Episode 7-Alex Jones Takes A Hit
We are here with a quick tidbit episode! In this relatively short episode Christian looks into radio host, conspiracy theorist and right wing conman Alex Jones' recent expulsion from Facebook, Apple, Spotify and Youtube. Christian confronts the lie that this is a free speech issue. And defends it as the right thing to do. It is a decency issue. Alex Jones is an indecent man. When he's not railing against "globalists" and satanic pedophile government agents, he's crying about the deep state and selling snake oil to his gullible supporters. Alex Jones' dismissal from social media has the potential to be the greatest snake hunt in history, even an example of corporate progressivism, but alas we know they will drop the ball. Please share! As always, we are available on Itunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud!

Episode 6- Peter Jacob, Former Congressional Candidate and NJ Progressive Leader
Peter Jacob was the Democratic candidate for NJ’s 7th Congressional district in the 2016 election. A social worker by trade, Peter was inspired to run for office by Senator Bernie Sanders. Through hard work and perseverance Peter has carved out a place for himself among NJ’s top progressive leaders. Unlike so many of his Democratic peers, Peter remains unbought by corporate money and unafraid to speak truth to power. Peter is a fighter for NJ’s forgotten voices and can be found speaking at any number of events throughout the state. With support from within his district as well as throughout the state of New Jersey, Peter Jacob stands out in NJ politics, an inspiring politician that doesn’t hide behind empty platitudes and rhetoric. Unlike so many politicians today, Peter fights for the little guy and not corporate donors. In the run up to the 2018 election Pater faced a powerful primary challenger in former Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor under President Obama, Tom Malinowski. Malinowski, with support from a Democratic party hostile to a progressive agenda and a number of other primary candidates meant to confuse the electorate, proved successful. Despite this loss, Peter pushes forward, building on his legacy of honesty and hard work. We are available on iTunes, Stitcher and Soundcloud.

Modernity And Absurdity - Episode 4 - Daniel Delafe, Author Of Urban Jungle Mystic
It's been a while since our last episode. But it's been a crazy summer... I'm pleased to bring you my interview with a good friend, author Daniel Delafe. Daniel is Elizabeth New Jersey born and raised, and expresses himself through a variety of forms. He writes and plays music he writes poetry, and is currently working on a manuscript, he studies politics, spirituality, symbolism, history and a host of other topics. Daniel is a true renaissance man in that nothing disinterests him. This interview was recorded a while ago in the beginning of the summer, and it took place after the release of his self published book of poetry, "Urban Jungle Mystic". Available on amazon.com Daniel is an interesting young mind and through his poetry we gain insight into his deepest thoughts and feelings. We get into Daniel's personal life, and we get a lot out of it. Although I may not agree with Daniel on a variety of subjects, we share many common interests and this outweighs any other disagreements we might have. So here it is, my conversation with Daniel Delafe.

Modernity and Absurdity-Episode 3-Bernie and #BlackLivesMatter (with Prof. Flavio Hickel Jr.)
In this episode we delve into the supposed disconnect between the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and the Black Lives Matter movement. Profesor Hickel states that to imply that Bernie Sanders was tone deaf to issues regarding African Americans is dishonest. By focusing on Sanders, it let's Hillary Clinton, the perceived Democratic front runner off of the hook. We get into third party politics and whether or not progressives should pull the Democratic Party further to the left. There's even a little talk of Trump at the end. Because we couldn't help ourselves. Have Republicans jumped the shark?
