The woman you hired to read ads has the WORST voice I have ever heard. Her voice makes me immediately want to turn it off. Hire a professional- not an 8 year old. Also, Holden is not in a mental institution. He’s recovering in a hospital for tuberculosis.

Wrong regarding how comforting it is to think about an organisation coordinating this shit. The US have fucked with our politics in Europe since WW1 at least. They have destabilised every socialist govt in the world and we are no exception. They want unbridled capitalism and they know they will be in the elite. Fight now or forever bow your heads.

Just went back and listened to this podcast. You might want to listen starting at the 31 minute mark. Talk about prophetic. Scary might be a better word.

LBJ was NOT a Republican. A simple google search renders your opinion of Ron Brown’s political beginnings moot.

If this had happened to an "unfamous" family, Sharon would have been charged with Double Murder. You wont find anything in the house. Why would you? She had plenty of time to get rid of evidence. I give this scenario a 10 out of 10. This was not a " coincidence". Good cops realize this does not exist.
