Duran, Berletic, Ritter, and Johnson: A beef over Lira
According to Ritter and some commentators during "Ask the Inspector" Ep. 90 there's a beef amongst these analysts and commentators regarding Gonzalo Lira.
As a written addendum to a recent podcast I did comment on the US Government's lack of support for Lira, a dual Chilean/US citizen. I also, updated that addendum to add Ritter's view on Lira.
I'm disinterested in the beef. No doubt various people who wish to create trouble between often agreeing alternative analysts will be happy. Whatever.
However, post the Youtube takedown of the "Ask the Inspector" series hosted by Ritter's friend Jeff Norman and their move to Rumble, they uploaded to Rumble the entire channel history (shows etc.) from Youtube.
Ritter and Norman get points from me for this. It indicates that they have backup and that they are serious about what they're doing.
FWIW, I find the show a bit all over the place (user questions) and thus a bit light weight. However, its a nice chill out if one finds Ritter's opinion of interest and/or enjoys Norman's style of hosting. The user based questions are a double edged sword, sometimes irrelevant and sometimes excellent. Its a classic "your mileage many vary" show.
The point of this article is to note that the rift exists and that Ritter and Norman moved the entire show and its archive in their move to Rumble. If you've been around here long enough, I expect that you were as surprised as I as to how long it took the censorship police at Alphabet (Soup) to burn their
NB: Alphabet owns Google owns Youtube, and as far as I can see pretty much owns Substack too.
