Melvin Goodman is the guest on this week's special fundraising month episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He served in the Central Intelligence Agency for 24 years as an intelligence analyst where he specialized in U.S.-Soviet relations.
Dr. Goodman is also the author of several books on national security and international relations including the most recent Whistleblower at the CIA: An Insider's Account of the Politics of Intelligence.
He and Chauncey discuss what likely transpired with Donald Trump and Russia's efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election, the so-called "deep state", Putin's real plans, and how Trump's failures will help China's rise to become the world's dominant power. Melvin also reflects on the nuclear perils of the Cold War and how America would be a much better place if the misadventures in Iraq and the Middle East had been avoided.
In this week's episode, Chauncey continues to document Trump's and the GOP's war on the American people and is sickened by the professional smart people in the so-called "liberal news media" who laugh at the Great Leader's dangerous antics. Chauncey also shares a story about sexual psychology and Trump's alleged pee pee fetish. At the end of this week's podcast Chauncey is bored by the 2016 Oscar's and decides to share some white supremacist movie reviews about The Shape of Water and other Hollywood films.
Steven Hassan is the guest on this week's special fundraising month episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is one of the world's foremost experts on cults and mind control.
Steven Hassan is the author of several bestselling books including Combating Cult Mind Control: The #1 Best Selling Guide to Protection, Rescue, and Recovery from Destructive Cults, Releasing the Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves, and Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults & Beliefs.
He and Chauncey discuss how Donald Trump is a political cult leader and if it is possible to free Trump's followers from his thrall. Steven also shares his thoughts on the power of social media and advertising over free will. He also offers up some information that may be new to many people: as a child Donald Trump was raised in a church whose leaders used mind control techniques against their followers.
In this week's episode, Chauncey highlights how Trump's White House is corrupt and likely a criminal enterprise. The most recent example? Jared Kushner receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Citibank and Apollo Global Group. Chauncey also connects the dots between Trump's abuse of power as a means to make money from the presidency, the latest revelations about Kushner and the conflict between Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and General Smedley Butler's warnings about war profiteers and other gangster capitalists.
At the end of this week's podcast Chauncey also wonders if the ammosexuals who go to church to get their AR-15 assault rifles "blessed" are somehow related to the underground mutants who worship a neutron bomb in the movie Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
