05.11.18. Exit Iran, Enter North Korea

This week on Middle Theory, President Trump has the spotlight as he withdrew the United States from the Iranian nuclear deal, and the long-awaited meeting with North Korea looms near. What does this spell for US Foreign Policy going forward, and how will it impact peace in the Middle East and Korean Penninsula?

Before getting to the crux of the matter though, we tackle a number of pressing issues, including McNON’s dog vomiting all over the bed right at the start of the show, and some alleged ridiculous teenage fad called “The Deodorant Challenge.” Hint: It doesn’t challenge the smellier members of society to start taking care of their B.O. Side note: McNON and the Doctor both like Old Spice. What’s your odor-killing paste preference?

Things start to get a bit more serious as we transition away from teen fads and into the latest battle against the free press, as internet news giant Matt Drudge gets leery of President Trump’s issues with journalism. Drudge fears that the crusade against Fake News may eventually lead to a licensing requirement for journalists. Unfortunately, this is not the first time that the President has battled against journalists. The U.S.A.’s World Press Freedom Index dropped in rank from 20th in the world to 49th in the world during the Obama administration. The Bush Administration all but declared war against the free press. President Franklin Roosevelt’s relationship with the press was also strained, calling working newspapermen the evil of journalism.

There was lighter, more inspiring content in the first half of the show though – while there is an ongoing struggle between press freedom and politics, there’s also an ongoing struggle between iconoclasts and societal norms that perpetuate the world we live in today. We take a look at the so-called Intellectual Dark Web, recently profiled in the New York Times. This group of individuals ranging from Ben Shapiro to Bret Weinstein to Christina Hoff Sommers features political affiliations across the entire spectrum, but have the common ground of having been ostracized from their communities for speaking against the things they find to be wrong with conventional ideology. Their agreement is to disagree with each other, but to do so with grace and engage in a dialogue that opens up the possibility of new ideas.

Getting to the MEAT CUBE of the show, we discuss President Trump’s withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal agreed to in 2015. What are the implications this has on the upcoming sit-down with North Korean Supreme Leader, Marshal of the Republic, First Secretary of the Workers Party, Chairman of the National Defense Commission, and overall Shining Sun, Kim Jong-Un? We’ll find out soon, as they’re set to meet next month in Singapore.

We conclude the show with another piece of President Trump’s foreign policy: Trying to influence the World Cup. Did he inadvertently torpedo the three-way bid to host the 2026 World Cup recently presented by the U.S.A., Mexico, and Canada?

    Damn there goes my tuna fish casserole…it wasn’t even the projectile vomit it was the three tiers of humanity pictured above that made me lose all appetite…I can’t believe you guys took those Street Fighter Red Light District Back alley Fight 2 characters and applied them to the fearless, charismatic, beef cakes, our species intelligent designs to best represents them. How did you even unlock the bum fight characters? One hot thought…unexplained areola phenomena…during voting season….

    The windows roll down and a vapor smelling like the sewer treatment plant in august leaps out seeping into his pours, nose and ears lighting up the centers of the brain that say it tastes like asparagus and Sulphur in here…

    “Do you know why I pulled you over? Have you been Jenkumming, or drinking alcohol tonight…”

    Huh? Here’s how it went for me…Coast to Coast guest mentions Joe Rogan has a show like Coast with cursing…I start listening to Joe… Kevin Smith comes on…I find out about podcasts…Then Jim Harold, Mcynon Non, Your’s Truly Micah dollar…I did it in the opposite order I guess…nobody especially me cares what you think Micah that’s why I listen to your show every week and Joe’s not in three years besides tiny clips guest heavy…

    Boy if someone had explanations for everything they should be up on that trident up there foaming at the mouth…while you are focused on the fruity flavored and colored Parrots of the trident…The fourth and most secret hidden character is a man with bird tail sticking out of his head up their like some throat hawk vulture waiting for sloppy fallout seconds…road kill style…

  2. I dream of an America where Middle Theory does two shows a week…

    The most secret society is that like that scene in Eastern Promises where they claim they get naked in a bath house together to stare at tattoos…I’m going to imagine both you guys tattooed from cuff to collar, to heel…from now on under your pretty suits…dutifully of course….how come no one who says I got a hair cut today come back with longer hair, never, not once, has anyone I’ve ever known to have lived came back with longer hair after a hair cut? Except the illuminati…dun dun dun donnnnnnnnnne….I guaranteed Trump has gone for a cutty and come back with an extra inch or two…Hell make it 12 inches on top this time lets go wild….

    My problem with Psychology is if you guys all said normal was being jacked on acid all day and I didn’t like it psychology would say I’m the one with the mental problem for not wanting to partake in all the madness…hoo hoo hee hee teetetethe…worst case I won’t get to live my dream of being Tom Cruise in Top Gun…I’ll be stuck in my mothers septic tank with this 1980’s NES simulator forever…..

  3. I have an entire horde of these goons running around down doing anarchy’s great works…I have a guy who works in the paternity ward in the hospital who keeps handing people the wrong baby over and over to see how much hubris fantasy plays into what we call reality…to see there eyes light up and then go dead almost to a disgust with the thing when told oh wait that’s the wrong one…a guy who owns a large chain of Vegan restaurants who puts a dog meat broth in everything…people who answer on line survey’s with a computer program that randomly selects answers at 20 clicks a second…one of my men had to take his student driver to his cousins autobody shop and swap plates and serial numbers on similar car to replace the totaled student car so he could pass the student…an intolerant slob who finds people with tolerance bumper stickers and tests their faith in what their car preaches…

    come oh Micah if Trump isn’t the Fruitean Hung archetypal character suit for the illuminati to wear like a dress and play their out their fantasies of lost dreams on Broadway turned into the humanitarian works of madmen…Secret agent Denis Rodman take a slip of paper out of a fortune cookie…collect top secret north Korean blue print for feigning a humanitarian tip toe with incompetence and madness personality types…Reports back the fans in North Korea love an incompetent ill logic pompous ass…it’s like a liquid gel cap for the @#$% to go down smooth…

  4. Any chance you guys could give me some “real characters” to play with? So I could write something good for a change? These guys are dried meat man, yellowed wall paper, stained holey whitey tightees I can’t work like this……………………………………when you wish upon a porn star it makes no difference who you are………

  5. No one should take what I’m about to say as a prescription, but I don’t think it should be ignored either…speaking on prescribed drugs for depression…having experienced both through people close to me this is what I see…every introvert/shy person I have ever met when they do crack or meth turns into the life of the party. Suddenly quiet people talk non stop, shut ins are running down the street screaming here I am…the same miracle is attributed to prescription drugs, sold with pride on being able to do nothing more than replicate the effects of an upper.

    Now I also know people who have died from heroine addiction, when they stop using their heroine, like people coming down off depression drugs, they feel suicidal, homicidal, hallucinate, turn against friend’s, family, and humanity, hurt themselves and others, all the same exact symptoms people who stop taking prescribed medical junk claim to experience. I have also tried micro dosing mushrooms and I bet it gives you the same feeling of well being a balance of any drug will give, not too much, not too little, just right…so the only difference is regulatory control of amount of dosage…Only as we see it being propagated, we are to believe that prescription drugs are something completely different.

    When a heroine addict says I’m sick during a kick, we don’t supply them another hit and tell them that they are only normal high on a little junk…you can disagree with me, but factually I see nothing that can prove me wrong…all they will do is say this person has an imbalance and a crack high makes up for that? Their drug will light up the same centers of the brain as any street drug, as I’ve made clear psychology is on the side of the society gun. So if society says a heroine high makes people with A.D.D. settle down, psy agrees it’s good for them…This new drug pusher society gun is so bad that doctors give out these heavily addictive counter productive prescriptions, like with my grandma, telling her to take drugs together that shouldn’t be, and too many at once, like I said Kraft macaroni has more scientifically precise directions for personal dosage than a pill bottle which should not be generalized…They are lax on handing out junk because they are truly sold on their junk is different than every other junk out there. People I know who fought to kick addictions now fight to keep doctors from prescribing them back on them. The doctors have become the pushers D.a.r.e. warned us about.

    Psychiatry now is on the same level as occult and paranormal, corny, self servicing, spouting disinfo for self help con men to sell books. Nothing about Jung’s archetypes is original it is taken from Rome who took it from Egypt who took it possibly from the Chinese…just like Campbell’s hero’s journey if you lay it right on top of the Chinese zodiac you’ll see where these con’s keep stealing their lingo.

    Until humanity understands symbolism your all screwed…because it’s engrained in you so any con man can add symbolism to junk and make you go that makes sense…that is what symbolism does it is an etymology link between words that got it’s shape from story telling…I literally took a story about a guy stealing women’s panties to wear, threw in symbolism and made what could have been very dick and fart, seem profound in some deep way…try it…this is why when Josh Kutchin says fairies are associated with green any occult person 33rd degree or other wise has no Fing clue what is going on, yet artists people who use the symbol system say it is plant mythology not magic, or demons, or monsters, green comes from dragon…literally Perseus/Mithra/Petah the djed force, drag the green back up from the underworld…it all represents seeds growing…once you understand symbolism you will never see a ufo/fairy/occult explanation the same again, they are literalizing symbolism with out any real understanding of where the symbolism comes from…it comes from hieroglyphics…and again if you don’t understand them you go to words of a completely later and different culture to get an explanation,

    occult(urban dictionary) guys who don’t know symbolism so they let some con man sell them the definitions in fantasy books…again Poke Runyon is 33 degree Mason founder of Hermetic Sciences and still had the colors wrong on his alter????????????????How do I know art…

    while the paranormal is tossing salad and jerking water valves back and forth dirtying the water you can see artists all around who know if even only when they are using it, what this symbolism really means…It is for art, artists and to preserve truth, etymology, true meaning, what is and always will be at stake with the madness of hubris fueled mankind and their constant redefining medias…

    so this is one answer why paranormal guys never get the right answer, they are not artists, they are not trying to pursue the arts, they are not trying to preserve definition, they like all false systems, are trying to promote redefinition, what humanity and psychiatry has deemed truth, not what really is truth…writing dry, dull, bad shit claiming that’s how reality is though…taking more artistic freedom in leaps, bends, and bounds of ego than any fictional writer would ever dare…no fictional writer would dare risk ego getting in the way of telling a story how it should be told…Paranormal however…do you drink or do drugs? oh never!

    You notice how in the country who imports and uses most of the worlds drugs no one ever near the paranormal seems to have even seen a drug? Shaman afraid of familiars, allies, and plants…….”laugh track” all bs PC systems are set up this way…lets take a survey…have you ever (insert object that triggers the society gun) oh no I never… This is why you can’t find truth in any society convention they don’t allow for it…

  6. It was so great to hear McNon express his hate and distaste for infringements on the second amendment. You can imagine my heart flutter as he said that concealed carry permits, permits to purchase and the like turn a right into a privilege…and a privilege can be taken away as sure as it is given. Starts about minute 7.
