Illegal Knowledge

"Everything we should have known,
but were never supposed to find out..."

Welcome To Illegal Knowledge

Access Tucson Update: Illegal Knowledge is now on both Access Tucson and Creative Tucson, which will be the new home for Community Media in Tucson.  We at IKTV do not know when shows will begin on Creative Tucson, but we are making a contest out of it, and it's free to play.  COX Communications needs to supply the head end to the studio link from WaveLab before the studio there will be ready to accomodate a live show like IKTV.  As always, we will post the news here when it breaks.  KEEP WATCHING!!  SEE YOU SOON!

Illegal Knowledge Program Guide To Season Three

Episodes from season three are listed here, with links to videos which are currently available.  Unfortunately, not all of the information from seasons one and two have been preserved, some recordings have been lost or damaged, and a few shows were never recorded in the first place.
Click on the links below for the program listings for each season.  If a video for a particular episode is available, there will be a link to the IKTV YouTube channel where you can watch it.  If the video is in post-production, it will be available shortly.  If no link is present, the video is not available.  If you have made a recording of any episode which does not have a video link, I would be very interested in obtaining your video so it can be digitized and your copy can be returned to you.  Please send email to if that is the case, and thank you incredibly muchly!

IKTV 301 - Surveillance and Control v. Liberty and Security

Apparently I was as invisible to the lottery control staff at Access Tucson as I am to the Chroma Key.  This is the first of the 25 minute series, due to a "voting irregularity" (my show was first to enter but was not ever then entered) in the Access Tucson Lottery System for picking shows which then air on first-come, first-served allocated time slots (oh well, right? or was the content an issue? should I still have a bone to pick?).  This episode is about those who wish to trade their liberty for some temporary security, in regard to US surveillance networks and the lack of public pushback through the decades since Nixon.  Explored are the needs and the mechanisms for that control throughout history, and the resulting environments.  RealID® was apparently a big scary topic back then.  TALON, nanotech virus genome mapping and scanning by injection or inhalation, biometrics, card purchases, GPS, RFID, GMO foods, phone tapping, and thought-crime (think "Minority Report") still are.  Calls are about chroma keying, border walls, Japanese internments, more Hegelian stuff, DNA theft by US government, and the Belgium Seat Of Control.

IKTV 302 - Compelled Performance v. Common Law

Michael rehashes (from IKTV 101) the Uniform Commercial Code and its prospects to either United States citizenry or Secured Party sovereignty, a.k.a. Admiralty Law or Common Law, respectively, because, after all, this is right now becoming much more important.  I don't know whether I pulled a Homer by not having my notes in front of me, but the title is correct.  The last time I looked, I was not twelve miles out to shore.  The Magna Carta dictates Common Law, as does the US Constitution.  Legal Fictions and corporate strawmen abound!  Watch this if you want to know about: that Turkish-owned boats which killed a German, what happened to Dale and UCC-3, US Fascism and how to defeat Starbucks®, why Delaware has such awesome laws for incorporating, the collapsing economy, Frank Baum, why Obama is not a muslim, other distractions, why it is better to talk to your neighbors than to just Skype® them, the origins of Occupy Tucson (those being in Tucson's tent cities), that my guests are the precursors of "Preppers", how "Terrorism" is a Complete Ruse, one of my guests was actually in Yemen, how to speak carefully to another bretheren, why we should not have a Nanny State, why using UCC-3 is not worth the effort, we were talking about how to insure from Iran in those days, not very scary truths, that gold is still bullshit (sorry, Ron Paul) and that non-valuation (General Reciprocity) is the best way, that UCC and Black's Law have now (in 2008) become moot and you should start trusting your neighbors as much as when you are fighting in the trenches, how to fight corporate dominance (did I write that already?), the Inherent Goodness of Flags Emblazoned with Rattlesnakes, and the website UAFF.US.
Guests: Captain Paul Flowers, American Resistance Army; whatever an "Aminomflictin" is (really, I think I just met these people outside just before the show)

IKTV 303 - 666 v. 777 - Analyzing the Apocalypse

Empire and Apocalypse is the topic, in the United States, and as compared to Rome.  From the Monroe Doctrine to the Bush Doctrine, we discuss imperialism within the US and its not so many positive and its rather innumerable negative repercussions.  We also discuss the creation of a fascist police state within the US as a result of these Hegelian policies, war as distractions from Empire, RealID® as a possible proverbial "Mark Of The Beast", radical political reformation within the US, Free Speech Zones, and what the actual debt policy means to you.  Calls from the audience are regarding the Antichrist, Iran, October Suprises, the Bush Cycle (cronyism), China's debts, and other policies.

NOTE: Originally, thirteen episodes were planned for IKTV Season Three, and would have run through to the end of August 2008.  The City of Tucson, given dramatic budget shortfalls, seized and denied hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars of due funding to Access Tucson.  There was a cancellation of the bulk of the series.  The titled and unproduced shows for the remainder of the third season were as follows:

“For I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. But this is all they have to fear from me”
  -- Thomas Jefferson


“"And what does it amount to?" said Satan, with his evil chuckle.  "Nothing at all.  You gain nothing; you always come out where you went in.  For a million years the race has gone on monotonously propagating itself and monotonously reperforming this dull nonsense--to what end?  No wisdom can guess!  Who gets a profit out of it?
"Nobody but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who despise you; would feel defiled if you touched them; would shut the door in your face if you proposed to call; whom you slave for, fight for, die for, and are not ashamed of it, but proud; whose existence is a perpetual insult to you and you are afraid to resent it; who are mendicants supported by your alms, yet assume toward you the airs of benefactor toward beggar; who address you in the language of master to slave, and are answered in in the language of slave to master; who are worshiped by you with your mouth, while in your heart -- if you have one -- you despise yourselves for it.
"The first man was hypocrite and a coward, qualities which have not yet failed in his line; it is the foundation upon which all civilizations have been built.  Drink to their perpetuation!  Drink to their augmentation!  Drink to--" Then he saw by our faces how much we were hurt, and he cut his sentence short and stopped chuckling.”

  -- Samuel Langhorne Clemens, from "The Mysterious Stranger"


“I have lived perfectly well within this society; why cannot these oliogarchs and same misanthropes do as such then?  It is not because of any particular behavior for one sociological manner; rather it is solely caused by the lack of means and those resources to the great many which are foisted particularly by those which do not lack the same.  We have all faced the serpect sick and we know what it is, who it is and where it is, moreover, we all know what is better.  The question we need to ask these days is whether we are able to appreciate this and contribute.  Perhaps more pressing is that we must now, please keep track of each others' whereabouts: regardless of the presence of GITMO DELTA-4, we must assume that we all oblige to perform in our best.  While the shame of our collective nod to the perpetuation of subjugation and torture still happens, it needs to stop immediately, so this next becomes the most important.  The place in this world bears no more space for those ideologues of bigotry nor hatred.  The ancient thought that a betterment of one family or race or strain is somehow purity, that is now obviously not only quaint, but incorrect and patently obtuse and averse from reality.  The old lines are no longer to be sanely held.  We shall not now and ought not to ever more be alone.  I do not want to be this, only in, that only I am this; it is necessary this entire world needs to share that this immutable truth must be known, because, we all of everyone, we do collectively hold the highest and so care about our future, even when it is not our own.  If you will pick any one of the 3600 to stop, please pick ALL OF THEM and make EVERYONE THE CAUSE.”
