Porkins Policy Radio episode 134 In The Cards by Stephen Singular

Good friend and frequent guest Stephen Singular joins me today to discuss his latest book and first novel In the Cards. The book deals with the 2000 election and one journalists effort to expose the corruption and manipulation of the results by the GOP. Stephen begins by giving us an overview of the novel and what led him to write it. He also discusses the setting and the circumstances around the rigged 2000 election. We then talk about the novels protagonist, freelance journalist Jimmy Iverson. Stephen talks about the sort of person that Jimmy is and the journalistic ideals that he holds. We also talk about Jimmy’s current job as a ghostwriter for larger than life oil executive Bart Simmons. Stephen touches on the issue of ghostwriting and the reality of doing that work. Stephen and I talk about Bart’s veiled hints to Jimmy about voting manipulation, and how this and Jimmy’s engineer friend Tony lead him into uncovering the truth of the 2000 election. We also talk about Bart as a character and the complex way Stephen writes about him. Neither a hero nor a villain, Bart is a complex individual who does what he does for the good of the nation. We then explore Jimmy’s investigation into the company that produces the voter cards and electronic voting machines. Stephen and I discuss the real life problem of having a handful of powerful corporations in charge of voting here in the US and around the world. We also talk about how the voter cards could be manipulated to 1/5000 of an inch. We also touch on the many roadblocks that Jimmy facing in his pursuit of the truth. Stephen discusses the issues surrounding the media coverage of the election in both the novel and in real life. He talks about how and why the media completely fell asleep at the wheel and decided that this was not a story worth exploring. Stephen explains how this has led us to the situation we find ourselves in today. We also talk about how 9/11 and the Iraq war shifted the media and political narrative so quickly that the 2000 election was all but forgotten.

In the second hour Stephen and I explore how the election story affects Jimmy’s life on a personal level. We talk about Jimmy’s obsession with the truth and his deterioration when no one will take him seriously. Stephen and I talk about Jimmy’s alcohol abuse and the unraveling of his family life because of his desire to expose the reality of the rigged election. Stephen talks about how Jimmy’s convictions and lack of support leads him down a self destructive path. Stephen also talks about his own personal experience dealing with dangerous topics such as neo-nazis, and the risks that he took, and his own decisions to draw a line in the sand. We finish off the conversation by looking at the circumstances of the 2016 election and the allegations of Russian interference. I discuss my own beliefs which have evolved since reading In The Cards. We discuss how the 2000 election set the stage for subsequent voter manipulation in 2004, 2008, and 2012, and how the threat of a foreign government manipulating votes is not a far-fetched theory. I talk about the idea that the Democrats may be using the Russians as a smoke screen for GOP voter manipulation because admitting the truth exposes their own corruption, and the corruptions of the entire voting system as it exists today.

I finish off the show by talking about some new features I will be introducing on Patreon, and encouraging Patrons at the $5 level to suggest topics for the show. I also briefly touch on the launch of Scientology’s latest venture, Scientology TV.

The Opperman Report: Jeffrey Epstein, O.J. Simpson, and much more

 

I just had the great pleasure of joining Ed Opperman on the Opperman Report.  We began by discussing the most recent developments with regards to the Jeffrey Epstein case.  I broke down the case as well as the ongoing legal battle between Brad Edwards, Paul Cassell and the government.  I also discuss the recent legal battles that Alan Dershowitz has suffered as he faces an uphill legal fight in his defamation suit.  Ed and I also talk about some of the recent releases’ of depositions in the Epstein case and what they say about Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Dershowitz and the over all scale and scope of this pedophile ring.  Ed and I also talk about our disdain for Donald Trump and his former political strategist Roger Stone.

Later Ed and I discuss the OJ Simpson case and some of our theories on it.  We talk about the possibility of cocaine trafficking as a motive for the murder, and the numerous Scientology connections to the case.

In the after show we are joined by listener Joshua Brookshire and discuss a variety of topics.  I discuss the CIA and Hollywood podcast series,  DOD and CIA FOIA documents, money laundering in Hollywood, Central Asian geopolitics, Bowe Berghdal and much more.

Porkins Great Game ep. 3 Afghan withdrawal, Kyrgyz Maidan, trouble in Georgia

On this week’s episode Christoph Germann and I cover three major flash points in Central Asia and the Caucasus region:  We start by examining some of the recent developments in Afghanistan, beginning with the surge in opium cultivation and heroin production.  We discuss how this was always one of the main goals of the NATO-led invasion and how integral opium is to black operations such as Gladio B.  Next we take a look at a story which received almost no coverage in the mainstream media, the “invasion” of Afghanistan by neighboring Turkmenistan.  We look at why the Turkmen government decided to send in troops to the Faryab region of Afghanistan and what this means for the future of the nation, as well as the proposed TAPI natural gas pipeline.  We then explore the reality of the so-called “withdrawal” of US and NATO troops from the war-ravaged country. Christoph explains why there is no actual withdrawal, given the thousands upon thousands of remaining military contractors, a massive embassy and Obama’s’ quiet expansion of the US mission with each passing day.  We end the Afghanistan segment by taking a look at China’s increased involvement in the nation.  We look at the Chinese proposal to restart peace talks with the Taliban, and explore the notion that they could sway the Pakistanis to ease up their support for Taliban factions.
For our next segment we move to Kyrgyzstan and first take a look at that nation’s warm relations with Russia.  Christoph explains what the Russian-led Eurasian Economic Union is, and why the Kyrgyz government has decided to join in.  Later we discuss recent actions the Kyrgyz government has taken against various western-funded NGO’s, including Freedom House and the George Soros-funded Advocacy Center for Human Rights.  Christoph explains why Kyrgyzstan is quite worried about these NGO’s “promoting democracy” in a country that saw two recent color revolutions orchestrated by western NGO’s.  We finish off by looking at Soros’ recent visit to the nation, as well as allegations that the State Department’s Tech Camp event could be a prelude to a Maidan-style “revolution.”
Our third segment takes a critical look at the recent firing of Georgian Defense minster Irakli Alasania, and at how this is being framed as some sort of reversal of Georgia’s pro-NATO Euro-Atlantic choice by Alasania, while the current regime is doing all it can to integrate faster into the NATO sphere.  Christoph and I discuss what this could mean for the future of the NATO-controlled nation, especially with the upcoming 2016 elections in Georgia.  We also look at billionaire oligarch Bidzina Ivanashvili and his control of Georgian politics.  We finish off the podcast by taking a look at the recent “killing” of infamous terrorist Samantha Lewthwaite in Eastern Ukraine and Tarkhan Batirashvili in Syria.  We both offer our perspectives on what the FSB and Russia may be trying to say with these  announced killings, and explain why neither of these figures is actually dead.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 29 The Lone Gladio with Sibel Edmonds

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 had the great pleasure of speaking with the one and only Sibel Edmonds of Boiling Frogs Post.  Sibel is, of course, a former FBI linguist and whistle-blower who had the draconian State Secrets Privilege enacted against her, essentially classifying her entire life.  Sibel joined us to discuss her brand new novel, The Lone Gladio, which elaborates on many subjects discussed in her memoir Classified Woman: The Sibel Edmonds Story.  This modern spy thriller deals exclusively with the Deep State and the secretive NATO/CIA/MI6/Pentagon program know as “Operation Gladio B.”   Sibel and I discuss her decision to portray the CIA characters not as James Bond-style heroes, but as the dark, complicated, and often brutal people they truly are.  Sibel also goes into detail about the geopolitical aspects of her new novel, which we explore, including how nations such as Georgia (featured prominently in The Lone Gladio) are being used by NATO and Gladio operatives as a launching ground for false-flag terror in Russia and around the globe.  We also go into how Gladio B came about in the early 1990’s.  Sibel explains how language, culture and religion were manipulated in Central Asia and the Caucus region in order to create the very terror groups that we claim to be fighting today.  We finish off our conversation by exploring who is at the top of this destructive pyramid of control and terrorism.  The Lone Gladio has reinvented the spy thriller as we know it.  For anyone interested in the mechanics of the Deep State and its relationship to false flag terror, drug trafficking, media manipulation, blackmail, sex trafficking and more:  Please go out and purchase a copy of this book!  Honestly,  this is one of the most important books to come out in decades.

Democracy Now Tags Indicted Multi-Millionaire Crook as a Whistleblower and Goes after Russia!

On October 15, 2013, Democracy Now! dedicated an entire hour to a segment titled Another U.S. Whistleblower Behind Bars? Investor Jailed After Exposing Corrupt Azerbaijani Oil Deal. The exclusive show presented the case of multimillionaire American businessman Rick Bourke, who supposedly blew the whistle on a fraudulent scheme by international criminals to gain control of the oil riches of Azerbaijan. Since May 2013 Rick Bourke has been held in a federal prison for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act for alleged knowledge of the bribery that allegedly took place in 1998. Other investors in the corrupt Azerbaijan scheme included former Democratic Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and major institutions, including Columbia University and AIG. However, so far, no one has been jailed other than Bourke. Read more here

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.

Porkins Policy Radio Episode 1 “Boston Bombing and the CIA connection”

Podcast correction: I misspoke when talking about Imam Gulen’s charter schools in the United States.  I said that he operated thousands of schools.  He actually operates over a hundred.  Sorry for that gross mischaracterization.

As I said in the podcast there is a lot of information here.  The show notes provide all of the articles that I discussed in the podcast.  I have also provided some really excellent resource pages on Graham Fuller and Imam Gulen for those interested.  And for anyone that truly wants to understand the reality of the “war on terror” and how it functions I have provided a link to an incredible interview series between James Corbett and Sibel Edmonds on Gladio B.

Fighting in Tajikistan leaves 42 dead

Fighting in Tajikistan has flared up between rebels and the government in the southern province of Gorno-Badakhshan. The fierce government led attack was believed to be a response to the stabbing of a top security official. The stabbing was blamed on the rebel groups loyal to Tolib Ayombekov operating in Gorno-Badakhshan. Gorno-Badakhshan is a semi-autonomous region within Tajikistan. During the brutal Tajik civil war, in which 50,000 are said to have died, those within Gorno-Badakhshan were granted a degree of autonomy. A UN brokered peace deal brought the Islamist rebel leader and warlord, Tolib Ayombekov, into the ruling government. The ruling governments 2010 campaign to rid the country of Islamists has made the situation in Gorno-Badakhshan extremely tense. President Emomali Rakhmon has been trying to consolidate power by squeezing out the Islamists.

Tajikistan is the poorest of all the Central Asian nations. It shares a huge border with Afghanistan, houses a significant number of Islamist fighters, and is the main transshipment point for Afghan heroin. According to the CIA World Fact Book, Tajikistan”…seizes roughly 80% of all drugs captured in Central Asia and stands third worldwide in seizures of opiates (heroin and raw opium);”

With the situation in Afghanistan inching towards civil war, and Tajiks making up the largest minority in Afghanistan, we should be very concerned with this latest spate of violence. Cross border violence alone could reach a staggering number. Americans should also be concerned with our increasingly close relationship with this corrupt and authoritarian country and the effect on American security. Our past dealings with secular dictators who oppress Muslims has not exactly turned out well for America.
