Week In Review: May 1-5

by Travis Mateer

I would not call this episode one of my best efforts, but the show must go on, right? And when we’re talking about the ZOOEY ZEPHYR show, well, that show is definitely going on. And on. And on.

Why have I been in such a foul mood recently? I attended a local conservative meeting this week and received a generous $200 dollar donation, and I’ve gotten some other nice feedback on my effort fill the void left by dying local media outlets, like the Missoulian, but other comments are NOT appreciated, like Greg Strandberg’s close analysis of my personal/financial situation, which I chose to respond to.

Strandberg’s comment continues with his wonderment if what I’m doing is changing anything. Here’s the end of his comment and my response:

I appreciate Strandberg reminding me how closely my work is being scrutinized by some people, it’s actually helped me make some decisions about what NOT to do with my “free” time.

I had another conversation this week with a former target of my criticism who I’ve grown to have a new-found appreciation for. This appreciation began forming last November and is continuing as I assess community risk and look for local allies. I even had a nice conversation with the person I’ve speculated might be a financial terrorist about the encampment insanity in full bloom this spring. Strange bedfellows indeed!

Are things changing? Yes, though it’s hard to see, I believe the once-firm grip of narrative control is crumbling, and the rot is rising to the surface for all to see.

An investigative journalist and documentary film maker by the name of Maryam Henein responded to my outreach recently and said she would listen to my interview with Sean Stevenson’s sisters. Heneim made the documentary Vanishing of the Bees, which you can watch on Netflix.

Heneim’s latest effort is an hour-long documentary attempting to break the narrative control of the George Floyd “psyop”. Allie and I discuss the documentary in this week’s podcast episode.

If you value the content at my humble little wordpress blog, please consider supporting Travis’ Impact Fund (TIF), or you can make a donation at my about page.

What’s coming up this week? Lots of stuff, I’m sure. Maybe I’ll even be lucky enough to get a call back from the Detective allegedly investigating what happened to Joey Thompson.

Thanks for reading/listening!
