    · American Conservative University Podcast

    Show 1082 Glenn Beck Documentary Rumors of War 1 To watch the video of this documentary visit: http://youtu.be/O5bp_dkpJXI   The documentary will explore the dangers that a nuclear Iran presents to the free world, as well as provide insight into the extremist regime that world leaders will be dealing with as they prepare to begin nuclear talks. The special will also examine the Iranian government’s beliefs and history.  For over a year, the filmmakers have been researching and shooting this documentary. They have performed extensive interviews with former high ranking government and military officials who have been a part of top secret strategy sessions regarding the growing threat of a nuclear Iran. Rumors of War will examine the current leadership of Iran, Ahmadenjiad, Khameini, who are part of a radical Muslim sect that believe it is their duty to hasten the return of the 12th Imam,  a Jesus-like figure who will wipe the planet clean of Iran’s enemies, of which Israel and the United States rank 1 and 1a.  They believe, and have stated publically that by initiating worldwide chaos they can bring about his return.   There is irrefutable evidence that they have already taken steps in that direction through terrorist groups Hezbollah and Hamas – adding nuclear weapons to the equation would literally put the entire world at risk.   “Rumors of War reveals the true threat level a nuclear Iran poses to the United States and the Israel, including ramifications no one to date has talked about.  The documentary reveals what may be the only solution to this grave problem,” producers added.  The documentary will be available exclusively to Insider Extreme members. Subscribers to Insider Extreme not only get access to Mercury’s exclusive documentary’s, but also a six-camera shoot of the radio show, The 4th Hour with Pat and Stu, live event specials, and more.

  • The Camera Never Lies

    · Seriously...

    Does documentary ever really tell the truth?BAFTA award winning filmmaker Molly Dineen examines the concept of truth and the creation of narrative in documentary film making. Robert Flaherty's 'Nanook of the North' is considered the first documentary ever made, and much of it was specially set up for the cameras. We think that modern 'Scripted Reality' is a new phenomenon, but does it have its roots in the earliest days of documentary? We look at the making of a documentary, from idea, to casting, filming and editing to find out how documentary makers craft their story.Molly Dineen looks at nearly 100 years of documentary making from the archives, as well as looking back on her own career. Her first film 'Home from the Hill' followed retired Solider Hilary Hook returning to England after a career in Kenya, and she has also filmed the London Zoo in crisis, in her BAFTA award winning series 'The Ark', modern celebrity in her portrait of ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, and a Prime Minister in waiting in the 1997 Party Political Broadcast for the Labour Party. Molly's observational style sees her immersing herself in the worlds she shoots, but we also take a look at modern 'Fly on the Wall' programming, speaking to TV producer Jonathan Stadlen about his series 'GP's: Behind Closed Doors'. There's more factual programming around now than ever; but is this a good thing? Are the schedules clogged with cheap programming that sacrifices the truth for style, using fast cutting, music and voice over rather than allowing people to speak for themselves?We also hear from Kim Loginotto, whose films examine the lives of women worldwide, Radio Producer Simon Elmes and TV Critic AA Gill.Presenter: Molly DineenProducer: Jessica Treen.

To see the free video visit Google Video - Islam: What  the West needs to know.  ACU highly recommends this documentary.  Documentary description-An examination of Islam, violence, and the fate of the non-Muslim world.Virtually every major Western leader has over the past several years expressed the view that Islam is a peaceful religion and that those who commit violence in its name are fanatics who misinterpret its tenets. This claim, while widely circulated, rarely attracts serious public examination. Now, the question is finally being asked, "Is Islam itself violent?"Through an examination of the Koran, other Islamic texts, and the example of the prophet Muhammad, this documentary establishes, through a sober and methodical presentation, that violence against non-Muslims is and has always been an integral aspect of Islam. "Jihad," while best translated as "struggle," as represented in the Koran and the life of Muhammad, means nothing less than organized warfare against unbelievers. Relying primarily on Islam's own sources, this documentary demonstrates that Islam is a violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the destruction or subjugation of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.The documentary consists of original interviews, citations from Islamic texts, Islamic artwork, computer-animated maps, footage of Western leaders, and Islamic television broadcasts. Its tone is sober, methodical, and compelling.Features interviews with noted experts on Islam including Robert Spencer, Serge Trifkovic, Bat Ye'or, Abdullah Al-Araby, and former terrorist Walid Shoebat.

    Show 1726 Documentary- The Case for Israel - Democracy's Outpost To watch this free film documentary visit- https://youtu.be/fPch-1CrW_A A landmark documentary film with Alan Dershowitz Publisher: Emet Productions, 2009 This documentary was produced to present a vigorous case for Israel -- for its basic right to exist, to protect its citizens from terrorism, and to defend its borders from hostile enemies -- in a highly accessible multimedia format. Alan Dershowitz plays a central role in this documentary as adviser and on-camera presence and argues forcefully that real peace in the Middle East can only occur when the Palestinians, Arabs and their allies value the creation of a Palestinian homeland more than they oppose the presence of a Jewish state. Through incisive conversations with key judicial, political and academic leaders, Dershowitz refutes deeply entrenched misperceptions about Israel's history, Jewish claims to a homeland, individual rights under Israel's democratic system of government, the security fence, and military conduct in the face of terrorist attacks.

  • The Making of “Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru” | An interview with documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger

    · The Tony Robbins Podcast

    Hundreds of thousands of people have attended Tony Robbins programs, but there’s an event that only takes place once a year in the States, where 2,500 people from all over the world come to Florida to experience one of his most intimate and intensive seminars — Date with Destiny. It’s six days of total immersion, and the people who take that journey discover who they are, what drives them, and their ultimate purpose, and they dive deep into how they interact and relate with others. In short, this is the place where they deal with the hard stuff. And with thousands of people in a room, digging into their pasts, envisioning their future, you name it -- you can imagine how emotionally charged the room gets, and how personal of an experience Date with Destiny is. So it’s not hard to understand why Tony never allowed cameras in to document the event. But that all changed when he met acclaimed documentary filmmaker, Joe Berlinger. Tony and Joe were first introduced to each other by two other heavy-hitters in the entertainment industry -- Brian Koppelman and David Levien -- who themselves had attended Date with Destiny and ultimately went on to executive produce the documentary. For those of you familiar with Joe’s body of work, you may be surprised that Joe would have pursued a subject like Date with Destiny in the first place. And you may be especially curious as to why he felt so strongly that he pressed Tony for years to say agree to it. After all, Berlinger is known for investigative films like the Paradise Lost trilogy about the West Memphis Three, exposing cracks in the criminal justice system, and “Crude,” which is about pollution in the Amazon from giant oil companies. His work, for the most part, has been geared toward taking us into the issues of the world that are often obscured by media or politics, and the uncovering disturbing truths. So for this film, it’s a bit of a departure in subject. But the motivation, the storytelling, and the deep dive into parts unknown — that’s all there. And that’s what made the endeavor a clear choice for Joe. The film is called “Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru” and it premiered at South by Southwest in March, followed by a string of showings at film festivals. The documentary has been picked up by Netflix and will premier to members worldwide on July 15th. For more information about the documentary visit: tonyrobbins.com/documentary

  • Token Skeptic 200 - On On Tesla, Scientology, Psychics - And Skepticism

    · Token Skeptic Podcast

    Welcome to episode two hundred. The show finally made it! This is a thank you to everyone who has supported the Token Skeptic podcast over many years. There's a number of people who have consistently supported the show, some who have done so financially - and whether you are still with or have moved on or your circumstances have changed, I am still very grateful for your thoughts and for your time. The following is for you, as it is you who have made the biggest difference to the world. Thanks to your existence, I've gone back to school and studied radio broadcasting and taken a lot of very early mornings in order to conduct the following - because you can't stop the signal... or skepticism. So here's three interviews that highlight the kinds of things that help make the show reach episode 200. ***** Tower to the People is a documentary about the little known scientist Nikola Tesla - a man who has boomed in popularity due to the fact that so few people know about him and his achievements. Documentary maker Joseph Sikorski has been working for over a decade on the story of Tesla, including interviews with the Oatmeal's Matthew Inman, Tesla's grandnephew William Terbo, as well as some of the most respected names in the Tesla community. The campaign has already exceeded over 75% of its goal in its first week and is now a hot trending project on Indiegogo. Tower To the People is currently seeking sponsors at www.teslasdream.com, where you can find out more about the story and the documentary. ***** A documentary about scientology has just opened in Australian cinemas nationwide! Written and directed by Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney and based on the book by Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright, Going Clear: Scientology and the Religion of Belief profiles eight former members of the Church of Scientology-whose most prominent adherents include A-list Hollywood celebrities. It's one of the most talked about films at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, this powerful documentary highlights the Church's origins, from its roots in the mind of founder L. Ron Hubbard to its rise in popularity in Hollywood and beyond. For this interview, I spoke to journalist Tony Ortega about the importance of the documentary - and also about his new book, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, his investigation of the author Paula Cooper, and her 1971 book, The Scandal of Scientology. ***** The Psychic -  The Skeptic - And The ACCC.   About half the population of Australia thinks there "might be something" about psychic powers.  But what happens when it goes beyond entertainment - and becomes something that can harm?   I'm investigating the perspective of professional psychic Sally Morgan, paranormal investigator Hayley Stevens and the Deputy Chair of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, Delia Rickard and asking - what exactly is a psychic anyway?   You can find out more at the ACCC site, https://www.accc.gov.au.

    · American Conservative University Podcast

    Show 694 Part 1 of 6 Documentary- Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy.    This is ACUs audio version of the PBS 6 hour mini series documentary Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy   To watch the Documentary Film visit: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/commanding-heights-battle-world-economy/    Episode One:  The Battle of Ideas Part 1 of 2    A global economy, energized by technological change and unprecedented flows of people and money, collapses in the wake of a terrorist attack .... The year is 1914. Worldwide war results, exhausting the resources of the great powers and convincing many that the economic system itself is to blame. From the ashes of the catastrophe, an intellectual and political struggle ignites between the powers of government and the forces of the marketplace, each determined to reinvent the world's economic order. Two individuals emerge whose ideas, shaped by very different experiences, will inform this debate and carry it forward. One is a brilliant, unconventional Englishman named John Maynard Keynes. The other is an outspoken émigré from ravaged Austria, Friedrich von Hayek. But a worldwide depression holds the capitalist nations in its grip. In opposition to both Keynes and Hayek stand not only Hitler's Third Reich but Stalin's Soviet Union, schooled in the communist ideologies of Marx and Lenin and bent on obliterating the capitalist system altogether. For more than half a century the battle of ideas will rage. From the totalitarian socialist systems to the fascist states, from the independent nations of the developing world to the mixed economies of Europe, and the regulated capitalism of the United States, government planning will gradually take over the commanding heights. But in the 1970s, with Keynesian theory at its height and communism fully entrenched, economic stagnation sets in on all sides. When a British grocer's daughter and a former Hollywood actor become heads of state, they join forces around the ideas of Hayek, and new political and economic policies begin to transform the world. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Documentary Description- Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy confronts head-on Americans' critical concerns about the new interconnected world. Based on the best-selling book by Pulitzer Prize-winner Daniel Yergin and Joseph Stanislaw, this groundbreaking series explores our changing world—the great debate over globalization and the future of our society. Commanding Heights dramatically captures the issues that have defined the wealth and fate of nations and shows how the battle over the world economy will shape our lives in the twenty-first century Commanding Heights reunites the team that created The Prize— award-winning producer William Cran (From Jesus to Christ) and Daniel Yergin—and is the first in-depth documentary to tell the inside story of our new global economy and what it means for individuals around the world. Filmed on five continents, the powerful narrative combines stunning film footage with dramatic stories and extraordinary interviews with world leaders and thinkers from twenty different countries, including: Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev, Mexican President Vicente Fox, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Singapore’s Lee Kuan Yew, former Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin, Rep. Richard Gephardt, and President George W. Bush's Economic Advisor Lawrence Lindsey.

  • Bob's Docs Episode Three: Prurience

    · 00:15:09 · On the Media

    For the month of August we’ll be running a series of interviews Bob has done over the years with documentary filmmakers. In the OTM office, the producers have been referring to the collection as “Bob’s docs.” Over the next few weeks we’ll go through some themes of documentary film-making, from prurience to access to the personal journey. This week's theme is prurience.  This episode features Bob's interview about the documentary "Weiner", about the disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner's attempt at redemption with an attempt at running for mayor of New York City. Weiner had agreed to let a pair of documentary filmmakers record his campaign (and his entire life) in the hopes that they would capture his triumph. Instead, the cameras were rolling as he faced yet another slew of sexting allegations. Elyse Steinberg is a writer and documentary film director. Josh Kriegman is a director and former political political consultant. Together, they produced and directed "Weiner".  Since this interview, Weiner has pled guilty to a felony obscenity charge for sending pictures and messages to a 15-year-old girl. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for September.

LIke there are no words so he had to notch himself down even though it doesn’t express exactly what he wants to say: … “so perfect”. He analyzes Gary’s joke and why it’s so difficult to do a joke like this (nobody sees how the sausage is made, they only see the final joke after years of perfecting). Patton closes with: “Thank you Gary Gulman. I know a lot of my shit’s gonna get angry these next four years, but it’s stuff like what Gary’s doing that reminds me I gotta make sure it’s funny first. Angry doesn’t change shit. Funny disarms the horde.” Gary is one of the best in the world. And no matter what area of life you want to improve in, studying in detail someone who is among the best, will up your game. It ups my game. I am infinitely frail. I fall apart at the slightest resistance. I sometimes can’t handle it. I sometimes can’t handle failing. I don’t always believe you learn from failure. But studying the best, makes my brain feel good. Like it’s being nourished. And that often gives me the strength to persist. For the past five months I’ve been going up on a stage 2-3 times a week and performing standup comedy in front of an audience. Often the other performers are people who were on the Colbert Show the night before. Or just released an hour-long Netflix special. So I have to up my game all the time. I want to be “one of them”. And I don’t want people in the audience to be able to tell that I’m different. Plus, I get scared to death. I am honestly so scared I am about to cry every time I am about to go on stage. Even if I’m going on stage to perform just five minutes of jokes. Five minutes is an eternity. What I realized, and will save for a future post, is that there are at least 20 or 30 (and probably much more) “micro-skills” that I could not have possibly imagined when trying to get better at standup comedy. I’ve been public speaking for 20 years. Is it that different? Yes. Which is why I had to have Gary Gulman on the podcast. One of the best in the world. I said above “five minutes is an eternity”. Gary told one joke on Conan in 2016 that lasted six minutes. One joke where (and I measured it) he gets laughs every ten to fifteen seconds throughout. He uses every skill in the comic’s toolbox. And probably many more that I haven’t been able to understand yet. I printed up the joke. I gave it to Gary. I said, “I want to analyze this joke word by word.” The first thing he said is, “This almost depresses me”. “How come?” “It took years to write this joke. And the others that I came out with around then. It’s so hard. Sometimes I can’t’ even get up because it’s so hard to do this.” What follows is one of my favorite podcasts. We cover his career, the techniques he learned and how he learned them. We cover the depression and anxiety and fear that goes into building any career out of excellence. We cover the micro-skills. No matter what you do in life, the one who masters all the master skills of your field of endeavor will be the one who rises to the top. How do you identify those skills? How do you master them? And we analyze this joke. To see the joke, Google: “Youtube Gary Gulman Conan States”. It’s his 7/13/16 performance. Watch it first.   Here are some things I learned: Part A) DELIVERY 1. COMMITMENT The whole joke is about the states and how they were abbreviated. Gary walks out on stage, “I just wanted to recommend a documentary to everyone and then I’m going to go.” Everyone laughs. No one believes him. But he’s totally COMMITTED to the joke. In the podcast he says, “I’m bragging, really. Because I know I have something in my pocket that I’ve polished so frequently over the years. Years and years have gone into this one joke. And I know they haven’t seen it. It’s almost like I’m say, ‘Wait till you get a load of me.’” A lot of comedians just pander for a laugh, especially in the beginning. Yes, fart jokes work. But GREAT comedy is art. Gary’s worked hard and he’s know it. This transcends more than just jokes. People won’t always know that what you have to offer is valuable to them. Until you show it. That’s how Gary builds rapport with the audience. They sense the commitment. They are in for the ride. 2. BUILD UP CAPITAL Audiences are terrifying. And often they don’t know you. Might be a business audience in a meeting. Might be a reader. Might be a listener or a crowd. Or a comedy club audience. They have to like you. Johnny Carson has said that this is the most important skill for a comedian. Likeability. Watch Gary’s clip and see how he becomes naturally likeable to the audience. These are techniques that can be used in every situation. But it’s also how you build up capital so now you can take chances, propose ideas they have never heard of, build rapport with each person listening to you, and perform the magic trick of transmitting what you see in your head, into the heads of all the listeners. I didn’t realize this was such an important skill at first. Again, I have another post about this. But, for me, the results were disastrous when I didn’t realize how important this was. 3. MOVE Gary uses movement. It’s almost like he’s acting out the joke. He points to the sky, everyone’s eyes move up. They’re with him. They’re in the story. “I need to keep their attention during that time because it’s a lull,” he said. You can’t just tell your joke. Or tell your story. Or tell your idea. Ideas, jokes, stories are three dimensional. Gary takes his joke and turns it from a premise into a three dimensional world we are suddenly all living in.   Part B) WRITING 4. OBSERVE THE ABSURD Throughout my entire life, I’ve been abbreviating states.  I’ve never thought, “Oh so many states start with the same two letters.” Who thinks of that? “What were you doing when you first thought of that?” I asked him. “I think the first time was when I was in 2nd grade and I got the arrow book of the states. I got it in 2nd grade but it must’ve been printed several years prior because the abbreviations was a new concept in this particular version of the Arrow Book of States. For whatever reason, I wanted to memorize the abbreviations. That’s when I noticed how difficult it was.” Thirty years later, he turned that difficulty into a joke. I notice this with comedians. They observe everything out of the ordinary. Seinfeld once said that a regular person goes into Bar Mitzvah and says, “nice buffett”. A comedian will go in and say, “why is there pork?” I’ve been working on a joke lately. The premise is that OJ Simpson made $2.7 million while he was in prison. The premise doesn’t have to be funny. Just quirky. The punchline can come after years of work. Not in my case but in the case of the best comedians, jokes, speakers, inventors. 5. PERSISTENCE AND DEPRESSION This is unique to Gary. He’s able to draw out jokes for 6 minutes. I asked how he’s going to get down to writing the next 6 minute bit. “It’s daunting,” he said. “How do you deal with the anxiety?” “I’ll say this, but it’s something that’s very personal to me. Hopefully it will help people. But I was in the hospital for a few nights because of my depression and anxiety. I was overwhelmed. It was a couple of months ago. I wasn’t suicidal. I just went to the emergency room and they admitted me and changed some medicines up, but it’s literally crippling.” “Did that help? The combination of medicine and them talking?” “Yeah…I’m in a better position now then I was then. I can function a little bit better and I’ve been able to get back on stage.” He said he had a fear of performing. Which was amazing to me because he’s so good at it. But I get it. I can’t go on stage without having a panic attack. And I know he’s been on stage 1000s of times. It’s hard. But once you say, “This is too hard”, that’s when you have to do it to get better. And improvement never ends. That’s why I wanted to learn from him. It’s easy for a comedian to tell crude jokes. Gary brings you into new territory. He told me that once he got a hold of the abbreviations joke, he held on. “I tried to strengthen it and lengthen it.” We kept dissecting. I wanted to get deeper into the toolkit. How did he make the joke stronger? 6. GO OFF ON TANGENTS He’s a few minutes into the joke. They’re talking about abbreviating the first state (Alabama). Alaska is next. But he had to take the audience away from the story. Or they’d lose interest. He sets the scene. The whole team of abbreviators is eating breakfast. And Gary says, “The omelette station had just been invented and was sweeping the nation.” “I’ve always felt uncomfortable with the omelette station,” he told me. I never thought about it before. Hidden truths surround us. Ghosts in a conversation. But saying them brings the discomfort into comfort. Makes the scary…funny. Or possible. Or gives us a new way of looking at things. “The omelette chef must hate us,” he said.  And in the joke Gary says they wanted to be a “chef chef.” Not an omelette chef. The tangent diverts your attention away from the main plot. He adds another about the people who call Hollandaise sauce “holiday sauce.” This has nothing to do with the joke. But it’s funny and adds depth to the story. And does it have to do with the joke..? Maybe! And then brings it back to abbreviations. Alaska is right after Alabama. Both are AL. That’s when the “crack team of abbreviators” realize they’re in trouble. “Did we already use AL?” 7. BE SPECIFIC In one of his first lines, Gary tells you the documentary is 98 minutes. Not 90, not an hour. It’s 98 minutes. “Why 98?” I said. It had to do with the number of syllables. And the exactness. Words don’t tell a story. Details tell a story. And it ends on a “t”. Gary knows from 20 years experience what consonants will elicit a bigger laugh. Micro-skills. 8. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MEMORY LOSS The crack squad of abbreviations is made up of “nayer do wells.” I didn’t even know what that meant. “I like to use language that you forgot you knew,” he said. 9. PUT LAUGH LINES TOGETHER Gary quoted the late Richard Jeni, who said, “What you’re trying to do is put together as many laugh lines as close together as possible.” You don’t have to wait long to laugh again when you watch his act. Gary does this too. He makes a small reference. “I want to say it was 1973… So I will.” And the whole crowd laughs. At first, I couldn’t figure out why I was laughing. “It’s a cliche,” Gary said. He uses a cliche to make fun of cliches. He makes you take a second look at some statement everyone says, but no one realizes they’re saying. 10. SUBTRACT SELF-KNOWLEDGE The joke gets more and more ridiculous with each line. But Gary looks almost clueless. He’s going on and on about this documentary, their struggles and challenges. It’s almost like he crosses this invisible line where he’s no longer aware. He becomes part of the story. And his comedy turns from joke to performance. Everyone in the audience begins to see there’s no real documentary. Except Gary. He subtracts self-knowledge which adds to the laughter. Because now people not only can’t believe how ridiculous this documentary’s premise is, but they can’t believe how ridiculous Gary is. Adding knowledge makes a hero. Subtracting knowledge makes comedy. James Bond can get shot in the heart, perform surgery on himself, and then get the bad guy. He’s a hero. If Woody Allen is shot in the heart then….even picturing it makes me laugh. 11. TAKE RISKS Gary makes jokes out of difficulties, adds specificity, tangents, cliches and so on. He has his tool kit. Each element has a purpose. And they all take him to the edge. “That’s one of the reasons I’m moving to Boston,” he said. “I can take more risks.” “What does it mean to take more risks?” I said. “Just to go on stage with material that is not as worked out as the one we went over today.” He wants to test his joke in front of audiences, then record it and tweak it. If you can’t take risks, you won’t hit the edge. You won’t go beyond it. Beyond the edge is peak performance. The area few, if any, hit.  Beyond the edge is success. Because people reward the ones who have mastered the risks beyond the edge. I always say I don’t like to hit “publish” on an article until I’m afraid of what people will think. That’s not quite true for this article. I’m proud to say Gary is one of the best there is. I’m happy I got a chance to take my absolute favorite joke and get the guy who told it to answer all my questions for an hour. I felt bad when Gary expressed his depression. His desire to continually improve and his fear of where that next improvement might come from. We’re all afraid. I wanted to tell him…sometimes when I feel that way, and I feel that way almost every day, I often know that something new is going to happen. Something that will push me forward. Afterwards, I felt bad I didn’t say that. I wanted to tell him how skilled he is. That he will push forward. But I didn’t say that either. I’m hitting publish here not because I’m afraid. But because I want everyone else to experience the pure joy I felt when I listened to this joke, listened to how he crafted it, and learned a bit more about how in any area of life I can strive to improve and be the best I can be.
