Porkins Policy Radio ep. 34 Gladio B Roundtable Part 2

FULL DISCLOSURE: I am no longer associated with Sibel Edmond, or BoilingFrogs/Newsbud. I think she is a con-artist and a petty and vindictive individual. If you want to know more about why I broke off all ties with Sibel you can find out more here:

On this week’s episode we continued our roundtable discussion on Gladio B with Sibel Edmonds and Tom Secker.  Picking up where we last left off, the three of us explored some of the reasons for Russia’s presumed intransigence in the face of mounting NATO and Gladio operations in their backyard.  As a case study for this we looked at Ayman Al Zawahiri’s little-discussed imprisonment by the Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) in Chechnya in 1996 while traveling with four diplomatic passports and a laptop.  We discussed why the FSB captured him as well as why they let him go.  Tom provided the context of the geopolitical situation in Russia at the time, and how this directly relates to the FSB’s actions with Zawahiri; with a defeated Soviet Union, Russia had to bide its time and begin to piece together what the new NATO strategy represented.  Sibel expanded on this by discussing similar “diplomatic” incidents that she saw take place while at the FBI, dealing with foreign nationals caught in counterintelligence operations in the US using “diplomatic passports” who, like Zawahiri, were quietly released back to their home nation.

Later we explored the recent uptick in violence in Chechnya and how this relates to an increase in NATO operations meant to destabilize Russia.  I discussed how fragmented ISIS is and how easy it is to turn on the Chechen terrorist movement’s switch. Tom asked both Sibel and me how we thought we ought to feel towards the Chechen terrorist movement:  Should we support them because of their desire to seek independence from an authoritarian state?  Or instead, should we oppose them as they are a tool of NATO power?  Sibel explained how the choices are always the lesser of two evils, and how both NATO and Russia are bad choices.  Sibel explained Gladio’s desire to break up areas such as Chechnya and Dagestan into autonomous states so that ultimately chaos will reign supreme.  We talked about the prospects for Chechnya to become one of these autonomous NATO-backed nations complete with Gulen-style schools and a Gulen power base.  Sibel later spoke about the threat of Russian nationalism to Putin’s tight grip on power.  Sibel explained that while NATO despises Putin, they ultimately need him in place as the alternative; strong Russian nationalism would be much more detrimental to the Gladio Deep State.  We ended the conversation on a philosophical note when Sibel asked Tom and me whether we would want to live in a unipolar world dominated by NATO, or in a bipolar world dominated by NATO and Russia.  This was a wide-ranging discussion that ended with more questions than answers, so we will be continuing our roundtables on these topics — and more —  next month.Quick note:  There is a special announcement at the end of the show about a new podcast series that Tom and I are working on.  It will be dealing exclusively with our research on the CIA and Hollywood and should be out in about two months.  Check out Porkins Policy Review for more updates on this.

Corbett Report Interview 989 Pearse Redmond Peels the TOR Onion

From Corbett Report:

“The TOR Project promises its users a modicum of privacy protection from would-be information gatherers, both small time crooks and nation-state cyber-security agencies. But do these promises hold up to scrutiny? And who is behind the TOR Project itself? And why did a TOR developer recently doxx a critic on Twitter? Joining us today to dissect this onion stew is Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Review.”

Mysterious website seeks intelligence on Hezbollah operatives

Via: inteLNews

Intelligence circles in the Middle East are abuzz with news of a mysterious website that appears to offer substantial financial rewards in exchange for information about alleged members of militant group Hezbollah. The website, located at stop910.com, describes its mission as helping end “Hezbollah-perpetrated terrorism in Lebanon and abroad”. It specifically targets the Lebanese group’s Unit 910, believed to be tasked with international operations, including intelligence gathering from around the world. Hezbollah is a Shiite militant group and political party that controls large swathes of Lebanese territory. It was founded in 1985 in response to the invasion of southern Lebanon by the Israel Defense Forces. It is largely funded by Iran and in recent years has come out in support of the Syrian government in the ongoing Syrian Civil War. Much of the stop910.com website consists of dozens of photographs of alleged Hezbollah operatives. Some are identified by name or alias, but the website asks for further information on them, including their real name, primary residence and telephone numbers or email accounts associated with them. Other photographs show images of unidentified individuals, whom the website describes as suspects known to be members of Hezbollah’s Unit 910. Next to each photograph, the website provides an allegedly secure link, which visitors can use to upload information and request payment. The website, which is currently blocked by most Lebanese Internet service providers, claims to represent an alliance of Western intelligence organizations. But McClatchy Newspapers contacted two Western intelligence officials who said the website was almost certainly an Israeli effort to gather information on Hezbollah activities. The United States-based news agency said it spoke to an unnamed “official based in Beirut […], who works for a European intelligence service”. The official told McClatchy that he had seen the website and “wondered why they [the Israeli intelligence services] lied” about who was behind the project. The news agency spoke to another unnamed “intelligence official based in Europe”, who dismissed the project as bad spy tradecraft. “I can’t believe this thing […], it’s very foolish”, he said. And he added: “it actually contains a significant amount of raw intelligence that would be literally illegal for American or European services to release to the public without the highest level of clearance”. The unnamed intelligence official continued: “now anyone can go online and get an idea of how much information we or the Israelis have on some of these guys”.

Barrett Brown and lawyers gagged

20130910-141741.jpg

The persecution of journalist Barrett Brown has reached a new level of insanity, as both he and his lawyers are gagged from speaking to the media. If your not sure who Barrett Brown is I would urge you to start reading about him. Brown faces 105 years in Federal prison for his work in exposing the shadowy post 9/11 network of private intelligence firms in the United States. His research covered much of what Snowden revealed; who now sits comfortably in Russia while Brown languishes in prison. Browns connection to the recently assassinated Michael Hastings should also raise eyebrows for anyone concerned with privacy and the shadow government. The fact that the government has now made it impossible to know about a case that no one was really aware of should be ever more troubling.

If you are interested in learning about Barrett Brown I would start with the amazing articles being put out out by WhoWhatWhy.com Christian Stork has been relentless in his coverage of both Barrett Brown, and the connections with the assassination of Michael Hastings. Secondly I urge everyone to visit Cryptome.org daily for leaked court documents on the Barrett Brown case. Quick side bar, Cryptome.org is the most valuable resource on the internet. For years they he been putting up thousands of documents leaked to them on intelligence, spying, Internet privacy etc. And unlike Wikileaks they are not media whores with a political agenda. No one has been prosecuted for leaking highly classified documents to Cryptome, unlike Bradley Manning. FreeBarrettBrown.org is also a invaluable resource to check out. You can also help Brown by donating to them to help with his legal funds. Lastly I would go and check out Project PM, the wiki that Barrett Brown created to help researchers understand the documents that were leaked to him on HP Gary and all the other private intelligence firms involved in spying on Americans. The link to it is still active but I suggest searching for it on Startpage.com and then viewing it through their proxy service IxQuixk. This will protect you from being spied on by the government thugs.

Update on NSA spying: They are collecting ALL communications and blackmailing individuals

This is an update to both the NSA spying scandal and my recent podcast on it.  It seems that the public by and large is still very much in dark about the true nature of the Security State and its iron grip on America.  While many have just woken up out of the daze of the controlled media propaganda about domestic spying, on the whole most do not truly understand just how far the Security State has come in the past decade.  The official narrative has been narrowly focused around the use of NSA data mining of Americans digital communications.  While reprehensible, this is merely a government smoke screen designed to shift attention away from the true scandal.  The scandal being of course that the shadow government (NSA) is collecting EVERYTHING that we say on the internet and on our phones.  As I stated in my recent podcast this has been know since the early 2000’s thanks to the courageous work of whistle blowers Mark Klein and Russel Tice.  Following the government script this is simply not spoken of whatsoever in the corporate controlled media.  Russel Tice recently gave an interview to both Boiling Frogs Post and the Corbett Report in which he exposes that the NSA was wiretapping everyone from key Congressional and Senate leaders from both parties, every Supreme Court Justice,  Bush’s press secretary Scott McClellan, General David Petraeus, to our current great leader Barack Obama.  What does this mean?  It means that all of these individuals can or are being blackmailed to some degree.  As Sibel Edmonds recently stated in an interview, the more dirt on these people the better they are for the government.  They will not expose the criminality of the State for fear of the retribution that they could face.  According to Sibel Edmonds she witnessed blackmail being used numerous times by the FBI as political leverage against Congressmen and other government officials.  This is the scandal.  Not data mining or any of the other red herrings that have been put forth, which have coincidentally taken the spotlight off of the recent scandals such as the AP syping, Bengahzi, IRS, and collaboration between the West and  jihadists in Syria.  What sort of skeletons does NSA director General Keith Alexander have dangling over the heads of government officials.  Was golden boy and possible GOP presidential candidate General Petraeus’ only “crime” sleeping with Paula Broadwell?  Or was there perhaps something else that Emperor Alexander had on him?

This poses an even more disturbing question about who truly controls the United States of America.  Is it the president? Or is it instead people like Gen. Keith Alexander who has access to all the dirty secrets of our government overlords?  President Obama himself made a veiled allusion to this during his press conference regarding the exposure of the PRISM program.  He said that when he leaves office he could certainty be a person of interest to whomever becomes president after him.  This in turn reveals the futility of those who vociferously advocate “electing the right people into office.”  It does not matter who sits in the oval office or in the senate when there are criminals such as Keith Alexander listening and watching  everything you say and do.

All is not lost though.  After Russell Tice’s interview on Boiling Frogs Post exposing the real scandal,  several mainstream outlets such as Huffington Post, The Blaze, and BuissnessInsider did in fact do there job and report the facts.  This is a small but significant development in the fight for liberty here in America.  The more people are exposed to the truth and reality of the Security State the more powerful we as a people become.  We can not falter in the face tyranny and acquiesce our liberty to the criminal gangs that run our country.  Please spread this to everyone you can.  It is our job to bring forth the truth.  We can not rely on messengers and messiahs to help show us the way.

Bulgaria was the target

It was almost comical how fast Prime Minister Netanyahu condemned Iran for the recent bombing in Burgas. Two days ago Netanyahu made the rounds of the Sunday morning talk shows, telling anyone who would listen that Iran is engaged in a global terror campaign against the Jewish state. Of course when pressed for facts on this outrageous charge Netanyahu was at a lose for words. He simply repeated the claim that it was Iran and Hezbollah who were responsible. On Face the Nation Netanyahu made the erroneous claim that Iran had assassinated diplomats. This is patently false, it simply never happened. Perhaps Netanyhau is referring to the trumped up charges against a two time loser Manssor Arabsiar. People will remember Arabsiar as the bankrupt used car salesman who the great and powerful terrorist state Iran employed a year ago for an assassination plot. He was to hire the narco trafficking super group Los Zetas to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States with a bomb in a crowded D.C. restaurant. If this sounds like bad spy fiction that is because it is fiction. Netanyahu comes from the political school of thought that believes by simply stating something as fact over and over again enough people will start to believe it to be true.
Israel’s insane desire for war with Iran has led the government there to blame any terrorist threat or attack on the Islamic Republic. After 9/11 Israel tried in vain to convince America that Iran was behind the attack that killed 3,000 Americans. Israel will exploit any terrorist threat or attack if it provides justification for attacking Iran. Of course this detracts from the possibly real threats faced by Sunni extremist groups. The Burgas bombing is an excellent example of this detraction. While it may surprise many, Bulgaria’s foreign policy has been moving it into a position that puts it in direct conflict with Al Qaeda and similar Sunni extremist groups. In 2010 extremist group Asbat al Ansar, who’s links to Al Qaeda have landed it on the U.S. terror list, proclaimed that Bulgaria was a target due to its involvement in both the Iraq and Afghan wars. So the Burgas bombing raises the question, what if the Bulgarian state was the real target? If this proves to be true than the real culprit of the bombing is still at large. Netanyahu will let the real perpetrators walk free so he can bomb Iran back to the stone age. If it is Al Qaeda or one of their franchise groups, they may very well be planning another attack on a western target.

With talk of war with Iran becoming so common place, now is the time for clarity. While many may be salivating over the thought of taking down the Islamic Republic this is not something that should be taken lightly. Before we jump into another war with a Muslim nation we should know the facts. Netanyahu is not the purveyor of truth.

NRO collects personal information

Thank God for McClatchy.  They truly are the one western news outlet that is actually engaged in serious reporting.  Their newest investigation has to do with the National Reconnaissance Office’s collection of personal information through polygraph tests.  The NRO is in charge of maintaining the United States spy satellites.  An exhaustive investigation by McClatchy has revealed that NRO polygraphers have been obtaining  “intimate details of the private lives of thousands of job applicants and employees, pushing the ethical and legal boundaries of a program that’s designed instead to catch spies and terrorists.”  This desire to catch spy’s is so great within the NRO, that cash bonuses are handed out to polygraphers who ask personal questions, known as Code 55 admissions.  This is all illegal.  The NRO has no jurisdiction or authority to ask personal questions such as, have you ever used marijuana, has you attempted suicide, do you suffer from depression.  Several whistle blowers from with in the NRO have come forward to expose what has been going on.  Of course the NRO has denied any wrongdoing with how they conduct polygraph tests. Here are two wonderful gems from the McClatchy article.  Both of these examples demonstrate how ridiculous the NRO’s poygraph testing is.  They also show how unconcerned they are over real criminal conduct.

Last September, a woman who’d held a clearance for more than 15 years and already had passed a national security polygraph was interrogated for more than four hours over two additional polygraph sessions, said Hinshaw, who said he’d been ordered to do it. Hinshaw’s supervisors launched the aggressive inquiry because they suspected that the woman had smoked pot more than the one time years before that she’d admitted to, records show. In the end, however, the only other information the National Reconnaissance Office extracted from her was that she’d been molested at age 16.

Here is the other more disturbing aspect of the NRO’s polygraph testing:

Despite the agency’s interest in criminal behavior, those who confess to serious offenses aren’t always criminally prosecuted even when child molestation is involved, McClatchy found.

In one case, a contractor who was a former Escondido, Calif., substitute teacher admitted to molesting a third-grade student in 2005 during outside tutoring sessions paid for by the girl’s immigrant parents. In a 2010 polygraph session, the man said that if he were asked, “ ‘Have you ever molested a 9-year-old?’ I’d have to say yes.”

The Escondido Police Department and school district where he’d been employed weren’t notified of the incident. After being contacted by McClatchy, the school district called the Escondido Police Department to file a report.When National Reconnaissance Office polygraphers asked supervisors in a meeting last summer why people weren’t being arrested on the spot after such confessions, they were told that the allegations were referred to the appropriate authorities, Phillips and Hinshaw said.

The agency refused to answer McClatchy’s questions about the molestation confession, saying in a statement only that its polygraph program “is in compliance with the law.”

I would urge everyone to read the full article.  The recent purging of whistle blowers, and the current administrations desire for secrecy, must be exposed for what it is.
