227 (Live Show): Is World War Z Globalist Propaganda?

"Alex Jones is gonna shit when he sees this." -my exact thought 25 minutes into the movie Topic: (School Sucks At the Movies) Cory, Osborne and I review World War Z. Our discussion includes a comparison of the film to the Max Brooks book by the same name, and an exploration the themes of and possible agenda behind both. I was so shocked and offended by the heavy-handed nature of the propaganda that I immediately went to InfoWars.com to see if anyone else was talking about it. The film seems like it was designed to provoke conspiracy theorists. This is an edited version the 6-27-13 live show. School Sucks is live on UStream Thursdays at 6:30pm EST.

226: How the Truth Becomes Illegal (Part 2) – Barometer

Topic: Part two in a series of shows inspired by recent current events involving the NSA, Prism, Edward Snowden and the barrage of leading questions from the mainstream media about the government's "legal" power to censor or silence the truth.
