    Robert Bonomo is a Gnostic 9-11 Truther who reads Tarot and writes for “deplorable” websites — my kind of alt-media journalist.

    Alex Tsakiris: Today’s guest is a blogger, novelist, a anarcho-capitalist—we’ll have to ask him about that one— and a part-time Tarot reader with a Gnostic bent… sounds like a great Skeptiko guest already, hey?
    Now, if you visit Robert Bonomo’s excellent website, The Cactus Land, you’ll be introduced to the wide ranging interest he has and a lot of his writings, which we’re going to talk about today, but you won’t quite be prepared for today’s interview because we are going to take it in a slightly different direction….
    Alex Tsakiris: …I mean, for people who weren’t following it, or are outside the United States, this was not an election of Donald Trump, this was a repudiation of Hillary Clinton and The Establishment…
    Robert Bonomo: Oh, yeah. I think totally, it was a vote against mainstream media. It was a vote for a lot of skeptical views, even conspiracy views.
    Alex Tsakiris: Exactly.
    Robert Bonomo: How many Trump voters do you think are skeptical of the official version of 9/11, for example? Something nobody talks about. Nobody talks about that.

But, more on that in one second.
    First off, Robert, welcome to Skeptiko. Thanks so much for joining me.
    Robert Bonomo: Oh, hi Alex. It’s great to be on the show. I’m a big fan.
    Alex Tsakiris: Well, thanks. I think we’re going to have an interesting discussion because as I just mentioned a minute ago, we scheduled this interview a little while ago, and I wasn’t really thinking about politics and current events when I did it, but then as the whole world knows, we had this kind of stunning presidential election here in the U.S. — stunning, no matter what you thought of it, good or bad. And then I started digging into some of the stuff you’ve written and I thought, “Wow. Here’s an opportunity to talk about this election, this historic election, in some new and different ways that I haven’t really heard anyone else talk about.” So, at the last minute I said, “Hey, Robert, do you want to do this kind of election political thing? And I’m not really exactly sure it’s going to go.” And you’re totally down with it, so that’s great.
    Robert Bonomo: Yeah, I mean, this election was just fascinating. I mean, it was fun too. I have to say I enjoyed it. I really did enjoy it. A lot of people complained, but I think it’s a key moment in our history, that election night.
    Alex Tsakiris: I agree. And before I get into that,
