Porkins Policy Radio episode 116 Hollywood Sex Crimes with Robbie Martin and Ed Opperman

On today’s show we discuss the ongoing expose of sexual abuse and violence in Hollywood. In the first hour Robbie Martin joins me. We explore how the scandal unfolding in Hollywood is indicative of a larger problem with sexual violence all through out society. Robbie talks about the larger implications of this, and how a serious societal shift may be in the making. We then look at Hollywood itself and discuss how they will survive the mounting allegations. Later we talk about the politicization of this, and how many on the alt-right are exploiting this crisis for political points. Robbie touches on several high profile figures in the alt-right who have their own sexual assault or rape allegations against them. We look at how they fit into this, and the role they are playing in manipulating the situation. I also talk about my own experience of sexual harassment and why many people don’t come forward. Robbie finishes off by talking about Kink.com and the rape allegations against porn star James Deen.

In the second hour we continue the conversation with Ed Opperman. We talk about Corey Feldman and his most recent promise to name names. Ed and I look at some of the serious problems with Feldman including his close relationship with Michael Jackson. We also touch on the serious allegations against magician David Copperfield. Ed and I then move onto Kevin Spacey and Courtney Love and their relationships with Jeffrey Epstein. We talk about Ed’s interview with Spacey’s estranged brother Randall Fowler, and Ed’s interactions with Hank Harrison, the father of Courtney Love. Ed also touches on how these predators can be dealt with legally. Ed and I also discuss Bryan Singer, David Geffen, Digital Entertainment Network, and their connections to pedophilia in Hollywood. We end by talking about Roger Stone and the recent RussiaGate indictments.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 45 Robbie Martin on The New Neocons

We are joined once again by our friend Robbie Martin to discuss the latest installment of his documentary series A Very Heavy Agenda.  In part two, How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the New Neocons, Robbie picks up where he left off by exploring the rise of a new breed of neocons.  Robbie and I discuss how deeply entrenched with in the media this new brand of neocon has become.  Going beyond the likes of Bill Kristol and think tanks, the neocons have now infiltrated organizations such as The Daily Beast, Buzzfeed, Vice, and other media outlets.   We go into great detail about the orchestrated “resignation” of Russia Today’s Liz Wahl.  We explore the idea that she was a neocon mole and break down who Jamie Kirchick and the Foreign Policy Initiative was behind this media stunt.  We also discuss the new brand of intellectual neocon’s such as Peter Pomererantsev, and how the neoconservative agenda is becoming even more influential and powerful then under the Bush administration.

Meet James Kirchick: Neocon propagandist

20140307-131500.jpg

By now I am sure we have all heard about the resignation of Liz Wahl, and the public condemnation of Putin by Abby Martin. Both worked/work for Russia Today, and both have created a media storm here in the west. Apparently Liz Wahl just discovered that she was working for a Russian government-funded news outlet and was shocked, shocked I tell you, to discover that they had a bias towards Russia. Liz Wahl, of course, got her start interning for the always fair and balanced Fox News. In the background of these stories has been an American propagandist neocon by the name of James Kirchick. Kirchick has been seen in recent days on the three letter corporate controlled news outlets spewing all sorts of lies and slander. He took to MSNBC to call Abby Martin an “out and out lunatic” for questioning the official conspiracy theory of 9/11, and for thinking that industrial fluoride put into our water supply is detrimental to our health. My god, what a nut she is!

His other little pet project has been helping out his fellow neocon Liz Wahl, and going to RT America’s headquarters and calling everyone there a Kremlin puppet. So I though a little background on Kirchick was in order.

Kirchick is first and foremost  an American propagandist. He formerly worked for Radio Free Europe. For anyone unclear, RFE is a US government-funded “media outlet” that takes it’s direction from the State Dept. and CIA. Since then Kirchick has gone on to work for Bill Kristol’s neocon think tank “Foreign Policy Initiative.” Kirchick also has the honor of being a former fellow at another neoconservative think tank called the Foundation for Defense of Democracy. FDD loves democracy so much that it appointed former Director of CIA James Woosley as chairman. And if that’s not enough, Kirchick writes for the corporate-owned Daily Beast.

James Kirchick rose to the spotlight on Wednesday August 21, 2013 when he appeared on RT to discuss the sentencing of Pvt. Manning. You’re asking why was Kirchick invited on in the first place? Well he had just penned a cute little article in the NY Daily News saying that Manning deserved the death penalty for his actions. During the interview, instead of defending this psychopathic idea, Kirchick started attacking Russia and RT in regards to the anti-gay propaganda law. Much to his chagrin he wasn’t cut off immediately, and was allowed to talk for around two minutes. Later off air he was caught saying he only went on RT to “fuck with the Russians.”

In a nutshell Kirchick is no different than those on RT that tow the Kremlins line. He lives in a warped reality where the great and free America must confront the evil oppressive Russia. This mentality is not only dangerous but idiotic. In geopolitics there are rarely good guys and bad guys. By painting the situation in Ukraine as black and white Kirchick ignores the complexities of what is going on. Boiling down the new iteration of the Cold War to good versus evil makes any action by the US seem justified no matter how reckless it may be. Kirchick believes that all US military interventions are good and all Russian ones bad. That is, of course, the same notion we hear from Russia. Furthermore James Kirchick is nothing but a hypocrite. His defense of gay rights only extends to those who don’t hurt his fake image of the “Land of the Free.”

What is happening right now in Ukraine is very serious. Listening to ideologues on either side of the conflict is dangerous. Rather than call for peace the power elite in both Russia and America call for military action. They use their minions like James Kirchick to whip people up into a war frenzy where anything goes. So don’t listen to them. For that matter don’t listen to me. Listen to yourself and your own moral values. War is wrong, ALWAYS. As Randolph Bourne eloquently stated “War is the health of the State.” And right now the State is very healthy.
