Porkins Policy Radio ep. 46 The Truth About Syria with Eva Bartlett

For this episode we are joined by activist and freelance journalist Eva Bartlett for an in-depth discussion of the  war in Syria.  Fresh from her fourth trip to the embattled nation, Eva lends us her perspective of what it’s actually like on the ground.  Eva recounts the many places she has visited, and the current living conditions of the Syrian people.  Eva and I discuss the numerous terrorist groups and gangs operating  within Syria, and the disappearance of groups such as the FSA and other “moderate rebel” groups.  Eva also offers us an alternative narrative about the Maddaya starvation story that gripped  news headlines and then vanished.  We discuss the propaganda involved in this story and its similarity to the skewed reporting of the terrorist siege of Yarmouk.

We also touch on the recent doxxing of a UN press official by hipster-propagandist Molly Crabapple, and her laughable claims that the UN is secretly working with the Assad government.  Eva talks about the dire situation  in the villages of Foua and Kafarya, two areas completely ignored by the United Nations.  Later we briefly touch  on the role that Israel is playing in the Golan Heights, and in aiding some of the terrorist fighting in Syria.  We round off our conversation by talking about the Grand Muffti, Dr. Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun, and the positive role he is playing in Syria.

Eric Harroun the “American Jihadist” dies suddenly

20140411-125632.jpg

Eric Harroun, the 31-year-old former US Army soldier who fought in Syria, has died suddenly of an apparent drug overdose. Harroun made international headlines with his constant stream of videos from inside Syria, praising the rebels, denouncing Assad and taking part in the fighting.

Ignored in the corporate media, and glorified in the pseudo-alternative media, is that both Harroun and his father claimed he worked for the CIA.
Harroun even went so far as to say that the CIA told him where in Turkey he could procure weapons.

To some degree this parallels the subject of our most recent podcast; CIA mercenary Mathew VanDyke. This is especially apparent by both VanDyke and Harroun’s vocal admiration for John McCain. The two stories diverge in that VanDyke has been praised openly in America, while Harroun was prosecuted by the FBI. This begs the question: why?

As of now there are too few details with to go from. In theory the autopsy should tell us more about how his death occurred. Unfortunately, in these sorts of cases the autopsy generally comes to the conclusion that the government wishes it to. If one had to speculate, though, it seems as if Harroun might have been the sacrificial lamb. Increasing evidence pointing to America’s involvement in funding radical groups in Syria and the moderate rebels’ alignment with them has forced the US to portray themselves as opposing these elements. By going after Harroun the power elite can pretend to the public that they are still committed to combating international terrorism. Simultaneously, they can funnel arms and money into the hands of groups such as Al Nusra. This type of selective enforcement raises questions about how and why Harroun suddenly died. Complicating this matter further is the plea deal that Harroun signed which allowed him to escape a possible sentence of life in prison for three years probation and a one hundred dollar fine. We will of course continue to report on any developments in the sudden death of Eric Harroun.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 19 Mathew Van Dyke: The CIA’s Favorite Mercenary

On this week’s episode we expose the bizarre character know as Mathew VanDyke.  VanDyke is a former journalist who became America’s best know “freedom fighter” in Libya during the 2011 NATO war.  After returning home from the fighting Van Dyke rose to prominence again with his pro-rebel propaganda film on Syria, Not Anymore: A Story of Revolution.  We trace VanDyke’s history through out the Middle East and show how he is most likely some form of CIA asset and mercenary.  In this podcast we also expose some key details which Van Dyke tried his hardest to conceal, including his knowledge that Syrian rebels had chemical weapons, that despite his claims to the contrary he is in fact a paid mercenary, and much more.  Mathew Van Dyke represents a new breed of pro-war propagandists who deserve to be shown for who they are.

Re-defining war in the age of “Hope and Change”

Barak Obama-United States-Politics
War has changed under our current presidential psychopath. The Nobel Peace prize winning warmonger, Barack “kill list” Obama, has pushed through and solidified a war doctrine that would have made even the neocons of the Bush regime blush. Amidst the flurry of drum beats for the destruction of Syria, a simple and profound aspect has been left out of the discussion amongst the chattering class in Washington DC.
Is it the fact that all the intelligence evidence actually points to the foreign backed rebels/jihadists as the true perpetrators of the recent chemical weapons attack? Of course not. Who cares about the facts? Certainly not Samantha Power or the other humanitarian interventionists pushing for war. Perhaps then it’s the fact that there is near unanimity amongst the intelligence community, both active and retired, that the evidence is being fabricated or manipulated to serve the interests of the globalists? Sadly this is not the case either. Ah, it must be the  illegality of carrying out military action against a sovereign nation that poses no threat to America without UN authorization, right? Wrong again. Perhaps it is the notion that Obama thought congress should be allowed to debate war against Syria, despite the constitutional dictate that Congress be the ultimate decision maker when it ones to declaring war against a sovereign nation. Well I’m sure  you know the answer to that one as well.
What I am referring to is the fundamentally perverse doctrine that Obama has now used several times since being installed as puppet ruler of Amerika; no boots on the ground equals no act of war. Leaving aside the boots of the CIA and JSOC, that have been all over the Syrian ground, the belief in Washington that bombing a nation with the most sophisticated military hardware in the know universe is not an act of war is the most recent machination to have been thought up by the globalist deep state.  It is true that presidents have used this doctrine of military murder before to carry out strikes against nations and groups in the past. But the puppet masters of Obama have developed this to such a level that the average person no longer sees bombing another nation as an act of war. The brutal drone campaign that has spread into Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and even the Philippines constitutes an act of war in four different nations which pose no real external threat to America. Yet with robots in the sky there is no war. Obamas war in Libya marked an even more aggressive version of the “no boots no war” doctrine. Thousands of missiles and bombs fell on a largely defenseless population while the liberals in the White House proclaimed to the world that there was no war against the nation of Libya. Can one imagine if Iran decided to launch military strikes against Israel in order to help Hamas gain control of the country? There would be an unending stream of blather all over Washington and the corporate media about this illegal war of aggression against the state of Israel.
When America contemplates bombing chemical weapons facilities, which of course would result in the dispersal of the same chemicals we are trying to stop being used against innocent people, this is considered humanitarian intervention and not war. There were no Japanese boots on the ground in Pearl Harbor. Yet the air attack on Pearl Harbor still constituted an act of war. This same principle applies to the imminent bombing of Syria.  No where in Congress or in the mainstream media is this even mentioned. Instead it has become accepted that America can launch massive air strike that vaporize people and whole regions with out having to call it war. By redefining the definition of war in America the elites have made it possible for the warfare state to continue on in perpetuity.  More and more conflicts are on the horizon under this current warfare state. By re-defining the very definition of war the state grants themselves carte Blanche to carry out whatever violent and horrific act it so desires.
War does not have to mean individuals shooting at each other from fixed positions on terra firma. War can certainly be defined as a brutal air campaign involving thousands of bombs and missiles raining down from the heavens onto a sovereign country. Do not be fooled by the puppet masters who sit in the imperial capital. There is a great war starting very soon. It will begin in Syria but it will not end there. It will engulf not just the entire region but the world itself. We has human beings can not stand on the sidelines and pretend that an act of war is some form of charity. This is not intended as a call for better politicians who will follow the constitution. Clearly electing the constitutional lawyer of hope and change has only brought us misery and death. This is intended as a call for all human beings to wake up from the matrix that has been constructed to control you. Wake up and see what the people you “elect” are capable of.  It is only when we resist not just the warfare state but the state itself that we will truly be free.

Humanitarian intervention Al Nusra style

A new video has emerged of Al Nusra fighters beheading two Christians, including a priest, somewhere with in Syria.
WARNING: VIDEO IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC

This of course is just one video in a litany of videos coming out a Syria depicting the “rebels” committing brutal acts of violence. It’s obvious from the YouTube video that many of these “rebels” are not in fact Syrian or even Arab. Instead we see men, and children possibly as young as three, who appear to be from Central Asia or the Caucus region. Yet again, this video demonstrates the complete delusion among those who continue to portray the war in Syria as some sort of struggle between the good Syrian rebels and the evil Assad regime. Instead this is a struggle to destabilize the nation of Syria on behalf of America, Israel, Qatar, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia, so as to reshape the Middle East to benefit there desired goals of global hegemony. When Obama and other tyrants pledge money and arms to “rebels” these are the people they are talking about. To spite the corporate medias attempts to rewrite history, many are now aware of the strong connections between the U.S. government and Islamic terrorists such as Al Qaeda. As was the case in Afghanistan in the 1980’s history repeats it self here in Syria; with the CIA taking the lead in funding and training their Jihadist assets in the Muslim world.

Some of the global imperialists have even publicly acknowledged there love of Al Qaeda and their ilk. Chief among them is the blood thirsty Arizona senator John McCain, who before meeting with terrorists in Syria, told Charlie Rose that such acts as depicted in the above video we’re “isolated incidents of people who have just gotten so battle-hardened and angry and this happens in warfare.” He went even further when he said he would prefer some sort of Wahabbist Al Qaeda government taking power in Syria because they wouldn’t be allied to Iran and Hezbollah. Straight from the warmongers mouth. The fight in Syria has nothing do do with democracy or humanitarian relief. It has everything to do with the destruction of Syria by means of Islamic terrorist proxy armies so as to control the Middle East.

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights funded by EU

SyrianShillRami

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has fast become the corporate controlled medias go to source on violence inside the country.   Every major newspaper and outlet uses their “reports” to determine the death toll of civilians inside Syria.  Surprise surprise, it turns out that they are funded by the EU and an unnamed European country.  The unnamed country is most likely Great Britain, and this has been widely known by anyone with a functioning brain.  The New York Times, as always about two years too late, has revealed to the general public that in fact the Syrian Observatory is nothing more than a western funded propaganda machine.  The fact that the Observatory is nothing more than a sole individual named Rami Abdul Rahman  who relies on Skype conversations still seems to not be an issue for media organizations and the corporate/government funded “Human Rights groups.”  As Tony Cartalucci points out in a recent article, people seem to have forgotten that the evidence that “Curve Ball” and Dr. Silman Bouchuiquir have turned out to be nothing more than lies and distortions.  No doubt the NYT and others will continue to quote this lying warmonger as they function as nothing more than a stenographer for the power elite.

US considers drones strikes in Syria

According to the government stenographers at the LA Times the CIA is in the process of setting up a drone program in Syria.  You can basically hear the CIA officers dictating what to say to the “journalists”.  This marks the third such “exclusive” by a western news outlet purporting to show the links between the rebels/foreign terrorists in Syria and America and Europe.  The Guardian recently reported that the the French, British and American government were arming and training rebels in Jordan to go and fight in Syria.  Of course anyone who reads the alternative media already knew that this was the case a long time ago.  Sibel Edmonds and James Corbett reported on the West training and arming militants in Jordan 15 months before the Guardian and Der Spiel were instructed by foreign intelligence agencies to report it.  True to form as a collaborator in the Western imperialist campaign, the LA Times frames the new drone program as a contingency plan to safeguard America from Al Qaeda and “extremists” operating in Syria.  Alas this is just cover for America and Western Europe’s imperialist crusade against the rest of the world.

For an article without western spin I would read this one from RT.

Syrian Rebels take 21 UN troops hostage

The Syrian rebel group the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade have taken 21 UN troops hostage. I wonder if these were the “right people” Kerry was talking about when he said that the “right people” are getting arms in Syria. Let’s hope they are the right people since they will now have a seat at the Arab League.

FSA declares war on Lebanon

20130222-122431.jpg

The war in Syria has now become a serious regional conflict. The US/Saudi/Qatari/Turkish backed FSA has begun a campaign against Hezbollah. This is a terrifying escalation of an already highly escalated conflict. The situation is further compounded by the fact that Hezbollah is a partner in the current coalition government in Lebanon. The FSA has in essence declared war on Lebanon. No doubt this will only add to more bloodshed and further destabilization of the region as a whole. The logic of the FSA seems rather misplaced. Hezbollah is a very sophisticated resistance group; not like the disorganized FSA which has had to rely on foreign jihadist fighters to do most of the frontline fighting. The FSA may be hedging it’s bet that soon the EU will declare the Shiite group a “terrorist” organization as per the request of America and Israel, thus making intervention seem more palatable for western citizens.
