Porkins Policy Radio 167 Stolen Future with Stephen Singular and the Miami Herald on Jeffrey Epstein

In the first hour we are joined by frequent guest Stephen Singular to discuss his latest book Stolen Future: The Untold Story of the 2000 Election. We start off by discussing how this book came into being. Stephen talked about his experiences back in 2000 investigating how the election was manipulated down in Florida and who may have played a role in this. We talked about Election Systems and Software, the industry leader in electronic voting machines, and the company behind the infamous punch cards and hanging chads. Stephen talked about ES&S’ deep ties to the Republican Party and to wealthy far-right groups. Later we discuss how this problem was never solved due to 9/11 and the media’s unwillingness to probe the issue. Stephen and I talk about the future of voting and the dangers of not confronting these issues.

In the second hour I talk all about the recent Miami Herald series on Jeffrey Epstein and the subsequent media coverage. I talk about the recent settlement Epstein made with attorney Brad Edwards, explaining how this is actually a win a a step in the right direction. I also talk about the important federal case seeking to overturn the deal Epstein and his cohorts received. Later I break down the Herald’s series, Perversion of Justice, and discuss what it got right and wrong. I talk about the new information that the Herald has uncovered and how this is yet again another positive step towards real justice.

The Ochelli Effect: Lenny Bruce Would Quit

From Ochelli.com

Michael Swanson returned to discuss a recent trip to a poker tournament where the topic of “Fake News” seemed to be on the minds of the players. Chuck and Mike discussed the media business and quality assets, versus quality analysis.

At the end of the first hour, the twists and turns of Wall Street under “tariff man” and the year-end trends were covered.

What do elitists filing lawsuits tied to sex with minors and recovered memory quacks have in common? Abuse of the vulnerable is the coin of too many dark realms.

Pearse Redmond and Joseph Flatley joined Chuck to go through the latest news on Jeffrey Epstein and discuss the universe of abuse both real and imagined.

Pearse lost his show recording earlier in the day.

Open Minds on Air: Undue Influence in Pop Culture, Cult Recruitment and Exiting

From OpenMindsFoundation.org

In this month’s episode, Pearse and Spike take a look at two cult-related episodes from the popular cartoon shows, The Simpsons and King of the Hill.

In The Simpsons episode entitled “The Joy of Sects,” Homer joins the Movementarians, who promise their followers a life of Bliss on Blisstonia – if only they give up all their money and follow their Leader, by toiling in the lima-bean fields. The whole town falls under the group’s spell until Marge gets the family out. Spike and Pearse discuss the inaccurate Hollywood “cult” tropes – and consider the few bits the episode got right – as well as dissecting the extremely erroneous “deprogramming” of the Simpson family.

Moving onto the King of the Hill episode “Fun with Jane and Jane,” Pearse and Spike explore what makes this a much more accurate picture of a high-control group – and which tropes weren’t so accurate. In particular, they discuss the excellent job Hank does in helping Peggy and Luanne leave the group on their own terms, in sharp contrast to the forcible kidnapping and deception Marge employs to “rescue” her family in the Simpsons episode.

Before you tune into this informative and high-spirited discussion, we encourage you to watch the shows so you have them fresh in your mind. Also mentioned in this podcast is a former episode with Christian Szurko, available here.

The Ochelli Effect: Blue Chips Orange Dip

From Ochelli.com

Mike Swanson Author of The War State kicked off Tuesday telling us about his trip to Dallas for the recent JFK conferences.

In Wall Street, World Chuck and Mike discussed the market behavior and the interesting displays by those who lost in the NYC casino. Plus what did the elections tell us about 2020? Was the Blue Ripple exactly what Trump needed to have a handy Scapegoat for the next 2 years?

We also got an update on Mr. Swanson’s bets on political outcomes and the real world effect of the Trump policies best observed by the Art on No Deals and shady steals.

News items along the way and some hints that a long-standing MSM gatekeeper may have been disturbed by or friend Carmine were also part of the conversation

When next Tuesday happens Chuck suspects there will be a lot more action to cover in the game of Bears versus Bulls.
Blue Chips Orange Dip

In the second hour, Chuck asked Pearse Redmond if he ever heard the phrase, “feed me to the lesbians”. Apparently, this phrase is a normal part of the Millennial lexicon and a popular T-shirt. Chocolate is another option in its use but the phrase is as follows

Interjection
“dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians”
(colloquial) Expression of surprise at something incredible.

Saudi Arabia and Russian Agent Orange Trump became the focus as Pearse and Chuck tried to make sense of the presser with Donny earlier in the day. Ivanka Trumps e-mail didn’t even get a minute on the show. Is the administration playing 1D Chess now?

The idea that arms deals and oil prices would dictate policy in this country being spoken aloud is actually refreshing. Now consider if the dishonest idiot in the office can actually play the complex game of diplomacy required to accomplish anything along those lines.

Pakistan and the failing War of Terror rounded out the discussion. Arms dealers gotta deal yo. President Disputes logic and reason at all times should be the headline.

CIA Conclusion, Saudi Crown Prince Involvement In Murder, but don’t ask the guy who did the glowing magic orb eight ball dance about it. Battling The “Deep State” is actually being the best weapon of mass distraction ever.

PPR ep. 166 Satan Goes to the Mind Control Convention with Joseph Flatley

From LennyFlatley.net

Satan Goes to the Conspiracy Convention is an investigation into the role that conspiracy theories play in American life and the current political climate. The story begins with the author crashing a convention for therapists who promote recovered memory therapy, a discredited (and dangerous) form of therapy that conjures up “memories” of past lives, extraterrestrials, and government mind control operations. From there, the reader will meet Pizzagate enthusiasts, conspiracy entrepreneurs, Satanists, flat-earthers, and people who believe that the Boston Marathon Bombing was a government “false flag” psyop. The story ends on the streets of Pittsburgh during the recent synagogue shooting and its aftermath. Ultimately, the book says, right-wing conspiracy culture is an authoritarian confidence trick that will only get more dangerous over the coming years.

PRAISE FOR SATAN GOES TO THE MIND CONTROL CONVENTION

“Joseph L. Flatley goes where few journalists dare to tread: into the heart of America’s conspiracy culture. Sociopaths, quack psychologists, targeted individuals, flat-earthers, antisemites, one world government freaks—no moldy rock is left unturned. Reading this book, first you’ll want to laugh and then you’ll want to run home and lock your doors. Because it makes one thing very clear: America’s conspiracy culture is a lot less fringe, a lot more profitable, and a hell of a lot more right-wing and scary than most of us want to admit.”
— Yasha Levine, author of Surveillance Valley: The Secret Military History of the Internet

“Joe Flatley is that rarest journalistic observer of conspiracy culture: deeply informed of its history and lineages, perfectly rational, and just sympathetic enough to know when harmless eccentricity and justified paranoia bleeds into malevolent madness. In these investigations he is at his best, deep-diving into worlds of belief where the CIA, Satan and the Occult are the only forces that matter.”
— Alexander Zaitchik, author of The Gilded Rage: A Wild Ride Through Donald Trump’s America and Common Nonsense: Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance

“Nobody gets inside the minds of conspiracy theorists and other American oddballs quite like Joe Flatley. This book is a pleasure to read—and a little frightening.”
— Matt Stroud, author of Thin Blue Lie: The Failure of High-Tech Policing

“A haunting and intimate look into the darker corners of the conspiracy movement, Satan Goes to the Mind Control Convention explores the toxic practices used by groups who exploit and control people seeking help. Joseph L. Flatley clearly demonstrates the dangers they present to an America obsessed by conspiratorial thinking.”
— Pearse Redmond, host of Porkins Policy Radio and Open Minds On Air

Porkins Policy Radio episode 166 Satan Goes to the Mind Control Convention with Joseph Flatley

Journalist and filmmaker Joseph L Flatley joined me to discuss his latest book Satan Goes to the Mind Control Convention: Manchurian Candidates, Recovered Memories, and the Dark Side of Conspiracy Culture (and other stories). We start out by discussing why Joseph decided to write a non-fiction book this time around. Joseph also explained his precise definition of conspiracy theory and conspiracy theorists that is used throughout the book. Joseph and I then moved onto the topics that take up the first half of the book, the recovered memory community and the theory of wide spread Satanic Ritual Abuse perpetrated by the CIA and aliens. We focused on one of the leading charlatan’s in this field Dr. Colin Ross. We talked about the toxic practices that Ross and other employ on their mainly female victims. Joseph used the case of Roma Hart as a template to explain how Ross implants false memories of abuse. Later we talk about the creepier aspects of Ross’ “therapy” which infantilizes women and turns them into children. Joseph also touched on the role that Lucien Greaves and the Satanic Temple have done in exposing many of these dangerous practices. We also discussed Ross’ connections to Scientology.

Later we talked about the broader issues related to conspiracy theory that Joseph bring up in the book. We discussed the rise of right-wing populist conspiracy theory and the role that is playing in everyday life. Joseph talked about his idea that conspiracy theorists are the canaries in the coal mine of society. We closed out the conversation by talking about Robert Bowers and the Tree of Life shooting in Joseph’s native home of Pittsburgh.
