Porkins Policy Radio episode 88 A History of Media Manipulation from OJ to Syria with Brian Heiss

Frequent guest Brian Heiss joins me for an in depth discussion of the current state of the media, and their continued legacy of manipulation and deception. We begin our conversation by dissecting the bogus news story that OJ Simpson is set to make a reality TV show with Casey Anthony. Brian and I discuss now the genesis of this story is a TMZ article that determined that an OJ reality show was actually impossible to make at this current time. Brian describes how this TMZ article became the source for numerous mainstream media articles making the false claim that the reality show indeed happening. We dive into how this fake news became a viral and is now entirely accepted as fact. Brian and I then move onto how the OJ trial built the foundation for this trend in media. We talk about several lies about the trial that have become accepted fact because of peoples emotional desires to believe something that fits their world view. We discuss productions such as The People vs OJ Simpson and OJ: Made in America and how they have continued to exploit lies in order to craft their own version of the truth.

In the second hour we expand out on this topic and look at the ways in which the media manipulates crime both here and abroad to fuel ratings and revenue. Brian and I use the OJ trial and the false allegations by people such as Jill Shivley as an analogy for the current push for war in Syria. We examine how emotions and not evidence drive both the public’s opinions about OJ and Bashar al Assad. Brian and I also look at the increased number of true crime documentaries that knowingly manipulate our emotions with lies and how this is affecting our entire criminal justice system. We speak about this rush to judgment and trial by media circus and it’s relationship to events such as the recent chemical attack in Syria.

ClandesTime 065 Homeland Season 5 ep 10

From SpyCulture:

This much more dramatic episode of Homeland was the basis for a fun review discussion this week, touching on the hints towards the deep state, the portrayal of the Laura Poitras character, the implausibility of the CIA’s handling of the Russian double agent problem and Pearse’s hatred of Allison.  We also discuss the mysterious origins of ‘terrorist videos’, particularly those coming to us via the SITE intelligence group, and how this is reflected in Homeland, and discuss why this episode made an explicit reference to the recent attacks in Paris.  We round off talking about Pearse’s enjoyment of the Carrie-Astrid relationship in the show, any my love of post-industrial architecture as the setting for both a jihadi terrorist cell and the CIA’s discovery of that gang.

Homeland Season 5 ep 10 The New Normal

Porkins Policy Radio episode 43 Homeland Season 5 ep 9

On this episode of our Homeland series Tom and I spent the first half of the episode dissecting the falsehoods that this particular episode as put forth in terms of the legality of spying.  Suddenly aware of the rule of law and constitutional rights we see all the major characters in this episode pushing this agenda of doing everything by the book.  Tom and I discuss how this is an obvious ploy to reassure the watchers that the CIA and other foreign intelligence agencies are now longer breaking the law when they spy on you.  While all the characters are trying to gather legal evidence of Alison’s Russian mole status, Tom and I break down how the CIA would never go through the trouble of getting this sort of information let alone entertain the idea of going to a federal trial.  We also touch on the series attempts to demonize the character of Alison; this time using her own sexuality as negative characteristic.

Later we move onto a topic that both Homeland and ourselves have mentioned time and time again: the gas attack in Ghouta, Syria.  We discuss how Homeland has continually used the Ghouta massacre as a plot device and the meaning behind it.  We talk about how the show is now advancing the narrative that not only is Assad using chemical weapons but also ISIS and other terrorist organizations.  We break down how Homeland is trying to convince us that everyone in Syria is a “bad guy” and thus drastic action in Syria must be carried out.  Tom and I also talk about the difficulty in actually producing and delivering Sarin, and talk about the Aum Shinrikyo attack in Tokyo as an example of a Sarin attack by a non-state actor.  We talk about how this theme may be one of the overarching narratives that Homeland is pushing.  Tom and I also talk about how Homeland’s ISIS cell wants UN recognition and the ridiculousness of it.  We also talk about how the Islamic State already exists and has UN recognition in the form of Saudi Arabia.    We round out the conversation by touching on our recent podcast with the Homeland Hackers and provide some more thoughts on why we believe they are in fact genuine.

From ClandesTime:

In this conversation Pearse and I took a few detours and rambled all over the place, but mostly talked about the concept of hyperreality – the condition of a consciousness that cannot distinguish between the real and the simulated.  We show how Homeland does this but also consider the question of why: why would the CIA be interested in using this effect that shows like Homeland have on their audiences?  What is the advantage for the CIA in hyperreality?

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.

Assad will suffer same fate as Saddam and Gaddafi

What happens after Assad hands over his chemical weapons to the UN? If history is any indicator, Assad will suffer the same fate as Saddam and Gaddafi, cold blooded murder. Under incredible pressure Saddam relinquished his stockpiles of chemical weapons, making him very vulnerable to external military threats (i.e. US military intervention). Gaddafi foolishly followed Saddams path and destroyed his nuclear weapons production in exchange for being welcomed back into the international community. What happened to Gaddafi? He suffered an even more brutal form of justice than Saddam did.

Once Assad relinquishes his chemical weapons he relinquishes any deterrent he has against American, Israeli and Saudi aggression. Please don’t read this as an endorsement of Assad or chemical weapons. This is merely to point out the plans of the global imperialists, and their campaign to rule the world.

Syria update: WAR WAR WAR

20130910-120043.jpg

The past several hours have seen what at first glance appear to be significant developments in averting a war with Syria. Skull and Bones war pig John Kerry jokingly stated that if Assad gave up all of his chemical weapons the United States would not launch a brutal air campaign against them. He also stated that this would never really happen because Assad is the reincarnation of Adolfo Hitler; hell bent on destroying the entire world. Well the Russians took the Bones man at his word and floated the idea to Assad. Much to the chagrin of the war pigs in the imperial capital Assad accepted this proposal, staving of the immediate threat of military intervention. A collective sigh of relief washed over many Americans when reading this news. We did it! We stopped the war! Let’s go back to obsessing over George Zimmerman and twerking. If only this were the case.

Absolutely nothing has changed. The chicken hawks in DC are still itching to go to war. Obama will still be addressing the public tonight on why we should go to war, and Kerry is pushing war harder than before. In fact the administration stated that Kerry was merely talking rhetorically when he suggested Assad give up weapons. If you watch the hearings going on right now (if you can stomach them) you will see that the war rhetoric has become more belligerent. Kerry, Hagel, and Dempsey are still urging Congress to vote for military intervention. The corporate controlled media talking heads are telling us that Assad can not be trusted to give up weapons. Human Rights Watch in the past few hours has spewed out a relentless stream of propaganda designed to sway liberals and so called progressives into supporting a war that most certainly will endanger human rights. And the Zionist warmongers and their minions are not letting up one bit. Billionaire apartheid advocate and committed Zionist Sheldon Adelson is now proclaiming that he will help Obama whip votes in Congress for war authorization. I guess he got over his pony Mitt Romney losing the 2012 election. Indeed Israel’s fervent desire to slaughter Syrians will probably be the main driving force in getting Congressional approval for legalized murder.

Please continue to voice opposition to war in Syria. The fight for humanity has not ended yet.
