Conspiracies, Politics, and Religion: Questioning Everything and Staying Uncomfortable

Episodes

The question of the day is… Who is Vermin Supreme?

If you don’t know Vermin by now, then you haven’t been paying enough attention…. If you know Vermin and don’t love him, then you’re taking life much too seriously.

Vermin Supreme is a satirist, performance artist, and most importantly, a 2020 presidential candidate of the United States. He has made a name over the years by bringing his boot cladded absurdist maniac character into the political sphere to poke fun at the very core nature of politics and expose it for the clown and pony show that it is, so he is clearly the perfect presidential candidate for our weirdo show.

For the 2020 election, Vermin is finally officially throwing his boot into the race and legitimately running as a candidate for the Libertarian Party. Many libertarians are undoubtedly weary of this move, as they have a hard enough time being taken seriously as a political party as it is… to that I say…. Then what do we have to lose?

We all know the whole thing is an attention circus. Let’s have some fun and send a message to establishment politicians by nominating the one man who can be a bigger clown than all of them. Ponies for everyone!

All that and oh so much more delicious weirdness on today’s wonderful episode of The System is Down #132: Everyone Gets a Pony w. Presidential Candidate, Vermin Supreme

Question Everything. Stay Uncomfortable.

Let’s get weird!

Hey! I watched another movie. Wanna hear me rant about it?

El Camino is the Netflix film Breaking sequel that we didn't know we wanted. It tells the story of what happened to Jesse Pinkman immediately prior to the conclusion of Breaking Bad. 

This review is spoiler heavy. You've been warned.

Did Jesse live happily ever after? Is Walter White still alive?! All that and more on today's episode of Rotten Potatoes: El Camino.

The question of the day is…. Do you like hearing about conspiracies?… Because today, you’re gonna hear about all of them. ;)

Today’s episode is my conversation with Mike Hanson. Now, you may not recognize Mike by name, but if you’ve dabbled in the conspiracy rabbit hole for any length of time, you’ve likely encountered his work in one way or another.

Mike is a former producer and camera man for Alex Jones and InfoWars. He worked with Alex on the Waco incident, helped infiltrate Bohemian Grove, and filmed countless hours of content for InfoWars.

In this conversation Mike touches on everything from 9/11 to Bohemian Grove to the El Paso Walmart shooting to Waco to S**dy Hook and much much more.

Also, in the bonus interview, of course we talked more about Bill Hicks, the moon landing, InfoWars origins, flat earth, and beyond. To get that, just go to patron.com/thesystemisdown and join The Downers Club.

Question Everything. Stay Uncomfortable.

This week we dive in to the numerous developments in the great whistleblower fiasco currently dominated the legacy media airwaves. From Adam Schiff and his plainly apparent meddling, to the actual Ukraine story and it's blossoming global scope, this one is sure to interest anyone who at least wants to know what's going on with this impeachment brouhaha. 

On top of that, we have the usual mish-mash of rapid fire news notables, including fentanyl trafficking busts at government agencies in DC, more sex crime prosecutions, and more. Tune in, and...

Stay Weird.

This week we spend some quality time together examining horrific Swedish child abuse on the global stage, the MASSIVE Ukrainian boomerang of death (Hunter goes to Kiev), and a handful of other smaller scope--but important--ancillary news items. If you were hoping for a show where the ADD is (mostly) restricted to only small portions, this might be the one for you. 

Also, if it intrigues you, human tiddy milk is definitely referred to on this week's adventure. Yes, I said it. Human tiddy milk.

The question of the day is... Are words violence?
Spoiler alert.... they're not. Now let's talk about Tom Macdonald's new album "Ghostories" 

Today's episode is a little different format than what we typically do around here. An interview had to be rescheduled, so I decided to fly it solo and talk about an album that's been on my radar for quite some time and on repeat since I received my copy. 

If you're not familiar with Tom Macdonald, he is a rapper who is known for being edgy and controversial for simply speaking his mind and being honest in his art. Here in 2019, that's what we call "dangerous". From race issues to trans issues to even calling out big pharma and saying 9/11 was an inside job, Tom Macdonald is a master of finding the buttons to push and punching them with all his might. 

Back in my childhood years, it was artists like Marilyn Manson and Eminem who were the punk rock edgy offensive artists. These days, the extent of their "edge" seems to just be talking about sex and Donald Trump... The same "edge" you can hear on The View every weekday morning. Tom is taking art back to the good old days of calling out the systems themselves, rather than repeating mainstream political "Trump bad" bumpersticker talk points.

So this is a song by song breakdown review of the album, not because I'm sponsored or am trying to get you to buy it (you should), but because I think it's an important and bold piece of art to come out today that pushes the ever tightening boundaries. In a world of "words are violence", we need more Dave Chappelles, more Bill Burrs, and more Tom Macdonalds.

Question Everything. Stay Uncomfortable.

 On this week's fast, fun, and disgruntled episode of QAnon Chronicles....

As Q's absence continues while 8chan is down, we dig into a veritable cornucopia of information, from the 10th NYPD suicide to confirmation of neurotoxic flouride, fetus collections, Seth Rich lawsuits, IG Report news, and a whole bunch in between. This week also features a few pretty compelling "Q Proofs", some tidbits on pervy Kevin Spacey, and inevitable praise of our fair-haired POTUS...and if that last part bugs you, I'm sorry. But this is my show, sucker, not yours.  

Stay Weird.

The questions of the day are…. Vaping! Is it just for hipster douchebags? Is it just for former smokers? Is it healthy or just a new evil?

No matter what your answers are to these questions, the real question is… do you think the government’s agenda to ban vape flavors is noble?

On today’s episode, I’m joined by 3 fellow knowledgable vapers (Keaton Johnson, JB Bryant, and Craig Smoldt) to discuss this buzz in the media about the dangerous evils of vaping and the government’s fool-proof plan to fight it… because we all know, when our government sets it’s sights on something there’s NOTHING they can do to make it better.

Now, I know that the idea of three white vaping bros defending vaping may not be the most unbiased conversation. However, I would encourage you to listen to the facts, statistics, and logical thought experiments and maybe even do your own research before jumping to the safe conclusion that daddy government once again has our best interest in mind here.

Are our kids really in jeopardy here? Does big tobacco have an obvious hand in this decision? Is Barron Trump’s JUUL to blame for all of this? Can jet fuel melt steel vape coils? All that nonsense and more on today’s episode of The System is Down #128: #VapeBan = Anti-Liberty Win for Big Tobacco

Question Everything. Stay Uncomfortable.
