Debunking Chemtrails – Depopulation & the Space Preservation Act – #3

September 22, 2017 // 0 Comments

An interesting conspiracy theory that has grown in popularity over the last decade is the belief that the long-lasting white clouds left in the sky by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed on the population for nefarious reasons. The people who believe in this conspiracy theory call these lines in the sky ‘chemtrails’ and feel so strongly against them that back in May of this year, they organised protests around the world. In an attempt to better [...]

The Anarchists Cook Book Review – Chapter One: Drugs

September 14, 2017 // 4 Comments

When I was growing up, I remember hearing stories of a book that contained information so dangerous and controversial that to own a copy, even an electronic one, could get you in trouble with the authorities. This was because the book contained a set of instructions on how to, amongst other things, construct explosive devices and synthesise illegal narcotics. This infamous book, which has now sold more than 2 million copies, has been linked to countless acts of violence around the world [...]

Agent Orange – Corrections – #2.5

September 5, 2017 // 1 Comment

I am currently in the middle of producing a series of videos documenting the history of Agent Orange, the herbicide used during the Vietnam war. I published my first video on the subject back in June, but originally started researching for the project at the beginning of 2017. Despite spending a considerable amount of time with my head in the books before I made my first video, I have recently found out that I have somehow managed to make two rather large and embarrassing mistakes in my first [...]

Kyle Kulinski: Another Lazy YouTuber

August 23, 2017 // 0 Comments

Like the Young Turks, Kyle has found himself an inflammatory blog post, this time by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), which tells the story of an ‘escalating legal battle’ between Monsanto and the people who believe that they got cancer from exposure to glyphosate whilst spraying weeds on farms, orchards, and lawns. The blog also reports that the law firm representing these people (Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman) have emails that show ‘Monsanto’s efforts to marshal scientists in [...]

https://theleagueofnerdsradio.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/178.mp3 Oh boy another hot button topic, we had planned this episode a long time in advance in order to not be accused of milking any hype or drama, then the universe spat in Myles’ furry little eye by having Sargon/Anita drama at vidcon. Troy Leavitt (veteran Game developer/designer) talks to the nerds about his industry opinion on [...]

Debunking Chemtrails – Contrail vs. Chemtrail – #2

August 16, 2017 // 0 Comments

This might surprise you to hear, but everyone I talked to at Save Our Sky (a protest against chemtrails and geoengeneering) accepts that aircraft can make white lines in the sky called contrails. These contrails are almost identical to chemtrails, apart from one major difference according to the protesters. Contrails only last seconds, whereas chemtrails can persist hour after hour. But is this true? Can contrails only last for a few [...]

Kyle Kulinski: Another Lazy YouTuber

August 12, 2017 // 3 Comments

At this very moment in time, I am sat at a bar in Dubai Airport enjoying a beer, as I wait for what seems like an eternity for my next flight to finally take me home to England. When I was last here, I received a torrent of tweets and Facebook private messages from people asking for my opinion on a recently published Young Turks video titled, ‘Monsanto Giving People Cancer?’ The video hit a nerve with me, as it was a perfect example of everything I have come to loathe about ill-informed [...]
