It’s a complicated story. I stumbled on it because I wanted to know who Pete Santilli was. He was behind the truckers protest in D.C. in 2013. Which I figured out because they sent people to his website, The Guerilla Media Network. And his show ran at the link. It lead me to the feud between Pete and Susanne Posel, who he fired off his show. Posel has gone after Pete after being fired. Vinny Eastwood comes in because he seems to be a co-creator of Posel’s rival site to Pete’s called The Real Guerilla Media Network. They even fought over copyrights for their two sites. Vinny has his own web show so she goes on it frequently.
The other shoe is Pete has been going after Alex Jones. That started when Pete, who runs his show online and on The Rense Network, has been unhappy with many things he learned about Alex Jones. But also he and his cohorts are truthers so they disagreed with some theories Alex had. Pete supports a Dr. Judy Wood, but Alex does not.
Susanne Posel seems to have turned on many of the opinions of Pete. When Occupy got big she joined the movement. So in 2011 she launched her Occupy Corporatism site, which is her news website. The other site The Real Guerilla Media Network is for independent media journalists, radio hosts, activists and documentary filmmakers worldwide.
As for Pete, his story is another long complicated one and a bit conflicting depending on his you believe Posel or his bio at his site. But it sounds like he was active in the truther movement and with conspiracy guys and as soon as he found Alex Jones he converted to a follower.
But he started to disagree with Jones overtime so he felt he had to get his own show to express his views. if you don’t know there are many sites out there created to run web shows and also that supposedly alternative/conspiracy in nature. Pete go into the American Free Radio Network.
But it was run to the ground by bad management.
So Pete had to move to Blog talk radio while creating his own site. The became The Guerrilla Media Network site. But as that happened, he fired Posel over a disagreement about direction of his show and differing opinions about the various topics. Pete befriended a lot of people because they all moved in another direction. Posel moved into the Occupy Movement direction.
Pete has moved into a more Alex Jones and libertarian direction. But Pet is vastly different than Jones or even Jeff Rense. If anything Pete is the foil for Alex Jones.
It would take me a long post to explain who Pete and what he believes. But I will say that Pete is quiet a character.
I wish he wasn’t into trutherism. I also wish he weren’t aligned with the site before It’s News where he reads and posts articles sometimes. Sometimes he makes sense. And he hasn’t been focusing on Trutherism much lately.
Guy got heavily invested into The Cliven Bundy story and was at the protests and the standoff.
