J Edgar Hoover Energy And The Rat Psychology Guiding Negro Politics: Part 2 | Episode 72

Part 2. J Edgar Hoover, the first director of the FBI, may not be around but his energy is present in new Black politics. FBI agents and informants were used to weaken Marcus Garvey, the Nation of Islam and the Black Panthers — in many cases for money and career advancement. How could this energy metastasize into the “New Blacks” politics in 2020? Jamarlin goes solo to discuss who is doing the trading and what is being traded to weaken the aggregate Black political position. 

J Edgar Hoover Energy And The Rat Psychology Guiding Negro Politics: Part 1 | Episode 71

Part 1. Jamarlin Martin discusses how J. Edgar Hoover’s goal to water down and neutralize strong Black politics involved informants and agents trading money and status for the water-down. How did Black American politics become so corporate, elitist and pro-status quo? Have the mind and values of the traditional informant been injected into the Black political bloodstream? Jamarlin discusses Pharrell Williams’ term, the “new Black,” that ignores race and how he partnered with the Israel Defense Forces. Jamarlin also discusses how COVID-19 is going to fix the new Black bubble and pop it, for the good. 

Thinking For Yourself And Shorting American Leadership | Episode 70

Jamarlin goes solo to discuss the COVID-19 crisis. He talks about the failed leadership of Trump, Andrew Cuomo, CDC Director Robert Redfield, Surgeon General Jerome Adams, and New York Mayor de Blasio. Jamarlin discusses his forecast that at least 30 percent of U.S. deaths will be African Americans. This episode touches on the $6 trillion bailout, a 2003 CIA report covering bioterrorism, and “designer bugs,” and the differences between Asia vs. the U.S. approach to COVID-19.

Was Obama The First Political Anti-Christ to Rise in Black America and What’s Next? | Episode 69

Jamarlin goes solo to unpack the question: Was Barack Obama the first political anti-Christ to rise in Black America? To understand the question, we have to revisit Rev. Wright and Obama’s decision to bring on political disciples David Plouffe, Joe Biden and Eric Holder. A political anti-Christ appears to be a political savior who will fight swamp corruption and bring everyone together but is really working for the other team as a system enforcer. Jamarlin makes the case that Obama’s elite professional and business conflicts have been transferred into the political and cultural minds of Black America, and it’s time to break off ideologically from negro elites.
