Porkins Policy Radio episode 180 Raid on North Korean embassy and Ed Opperman on Qanon hitmen

This week marked the return of PPR to a live show format on Ochelli.com. In the first hour hour I discussed the under reported raid on the North Korean embassy in Madrid. I talked about the shadowy group Cheollima Civil Defense which claimed responsibility for the raid. I discussed the allegations by Spanish authorities that at least two assailants have links to the CIA. Later I talked about the ringleader of the raid, Adrian Hong Chang, and his strange connections to institutions such as Yale and Freedom House. I finish off by touching on Leo Wolosky who has been retained by Cheollima Civil Defense as legal counsel. I also touch on the larger legal and geopolitical implications of breaking into a foreign embassy and stealing cell phone and computers.

In the second hour Ed Opperman joined me for a wide ranging conversation. We started off by talking about Alex Jones’ continued legal problems with Sandy Hook parents. Ed and I discussed the recent deposition Jones had to give. We talked about the responsibility that we have as producers of media to tell the truth. We also touched on the extent to which we are responsible for the actions that out listeners carry out. Ed and I also talked about the danger of going after conspiracy theorists even ones as crazy as Alex Jones. Later Ed and I talked about the recent murder of purported Gambino boss Frank Cali by Anthony Comello. We talk about Comello’s fascination with Qanon and flashing MAGA slogans written on his hand in court. Ed and I discuss whether there is more to this case or if Comello is just a nut or a patsy. We finish off by ranting about how much we hate Michael Avenatti. Ed offers up his expert opinion on if Avenatti will face jail time.

This week research Jon Gold joined me to talk about some of recent revelations regarding the 9/11 coverup. We started off with some breaking news out of Guantanamo regarding the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and others, and alleged recordings of them speaking about the 9/11 attacks months before they happened.

Later we touched on Israel and the rise of the right wing in the Middle Eastern country.

The Ochelli Effect – Psychotherapy For Media Exhaustion

On this particular Ochelli Effect, Michael Swanson went into a direction that Chuck did not expect. The industry of Psychology and MkUltra were discussed as inspired by Mike’s interest in the Documentary Wormwood. It was quite unique among all the dialogs with Mike on the show over the years. How does this relate to what Mike knows about his father?

This was far from the typical conversation Chuck and Mike have had over the years. Mike also talked about some current events and the dissertations of Eric Olsen. Fascinating stuff.

Pearse Redmond arrived in the second hour giving us an update on the latest slow-motion coup de tat in Venezuela. Chuck ranted briefly about how media consumers get what they ask for regardless of the gravity or value of information. This was another great TYR’s Day night on The Ochelli Effect.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 176 Ricardo Vaz on Venezuela and the Naked Imperialism of the US

Ricardo Vaz of Venezuelanalysis.com joined me to discuss the ongoing regime change operations in Venezuela. We stared off by discussing the recent return of so called “interim president” Juan Guaido after his visit to several Latin American including Colombia and Brazil. Ricardo talked about the muted response from Maduro, who allowed Guaido to return with out a fuss after being banned from international travel. Ricardo also talked about the response on the ground in Venezuela to Guaido’s return, and the fact that he appears to be losing some momentum as a political leader. We also talked about Guaido’s recent travel where he was allegedly scolded by US Vice President Mike Pence in Venezuela. Ricardo and I also broke down some of the wild statistics that figures like Guaido and John Bolton have been bandying about. We focused on the claims of 600 army defections and 20,000 Cuban intelligence operatives working inside Venezuela. We also touched on the devastating impact of the sanctions on medicine like insulin and the bridge-aid standoff . We fished off the conversation by discussing some of the other opposition figures including Leopoldo Lopez, Julio Borges, and Juan Requesens.

Writer and filmmaker John Potash joined me to discuss his latest documentary Drugs As Weapons Against Us. We talked about the main thesis behind the film and the original book. We discussed about the CIA’s involvement in the LSD movement in the 1960’s with groups like The Brotherhood of Eternal Love and the Mellon Hitchcock family.

John talked about how Students for a Democratic Society was torn apart by the deliberate introduction of LSD to the group. Later we talked about how various government informants pushed the use of cocaine on Black Panthers such as Huey P Newton.

Friend of the show Hugo Turner joined me this week to discuss Elliot Abrams and his legacy in Central America and role in the Iran-Contra affair. We began by discussing the roots of Iran-Contra and why it is still largely ignored by the media. Hugo discussed the origins of the affair going all the way back to the October Surprise in 1980. We talked about the other events that opened the door into Iran-Contra including the attempted assassination of Contra leader Eden Pastora in Costa Rica. Hugo and I then explored Abrams role in Iran-Contra itself. We also discussed Abrams role in covering up war crimes in El Salvador like the El Motoze massacre. Later Hugo and I talked about the genocide in Guatemala which Abrams helped facilitate. We also discussed the complex web of people and groups involved in drug trafficking, terrorism, death squads, and the suppression of the poor. We closed out the conversation by looking at the parallels between the 1980’s and the current political environment. We used the current situations in Venezuela and Haiti as examples.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 171 Ryan Carey on Nick Drnaso’s Sabrina

Ryan Carey joins me this week for an in-depth discussion of Nick Drnaso’s latest comic Sabrina. We started off the conversation on a totally unrelated matter and discussed the recent reporting on former CIA operative turned Batman writer, Tom King. We then shifted back Sabrina and the way it captures the bleak reality that so many of us find ourselves enmeshed in. Ryan and I discuss the books plot which revolves around the murder of a young woman named Sabrina, how two friends Teddy and Calvin deal with it, and the role that conspiracy theory plays throughout. We discussed the themes of isolation and intimacy within the conspiracy culture portrayed by Drnaso. Ryan and I also talked about how the book breaks so many literary norms including the concept of “Chekhov’s gun.” We explored the two male characters Teddy and Calvin, breaking down how both of them are essentially unlikable man children wallowing in their own self loathing. We finished off the conversation by looking at some of the broader issues raised in the book. Ryan also talked about the increased popularity of independent comics that encapsulate the bleak reality in the age of Trump.
