Porkins Policy Radio episode 89 Homeland Season 6 Finale with Tom Secker

Tom Secker joins me to wrap up our series of episodes focusing on the sixth season of Homeland. We begin by discussing our thoughts on seeing Dar Adal behind bars (I was quite upset about this). We then move onto some of the major . We discuss what the overarching goals are for the CIA. Ideas and moments in the final two episodes. Tom and I discuss the significance of the show talking about the infamous Office of Policy Coordination and its role in the attempted assassination against the President Elect. We explore why the agency would want the show to mention this. Tom and I also dissect Saul’s assertion that they are fighting back against a CIA engineered coup. Tom talk’s about how this is an oft used plot device in CIA sponsored media. The agency has long glorified the violent revolution orchestrated by themselves. Tom and I ponder if this is one of the goals of this season. We also talk about how this season of Homeland has managed to mimic our current political system better than any other show to date. We touch on the fact that Donald Trump reversed course on all his promises at the same time that the fictional Homeland president does a similar reversal. We also touch on this seasons continued use of the concept of a deep state, and the idea that the CIA are the good guys fighting against it.

In the second hour Tom and I discuss the recent admission by Alex Jones’ lawyer that he is in fact nothing more than a performance artist. We talk about how in some ways this mimics the Brett O’Keefe character on Homeland. Tom and I talk about the impact that this will have on both the alt-media and politics in general. We touch on the idea that there is a reshuffling going on within sectors of the right-wing mainstream and alternative media. I finish off the episode by talking about the recent passing of Will Grigg, his legacy, and how we can help out his family.

Porkins Great Game episode 11 Gladio B Heats Up In Syria

On this episode Christoph and I start off with our favorite Georgian politician, Mikheil Saakashvili, and his most recent meddling in his native country.  While ostensibly operating as governor of Odessa, Saakashvili was recently caught on tape advising the owner and director of popular TV station Rustavi 2 on how to instigate a violent confrontation with the goverment.  The pro-Saakashvili channel has been in a long legal dispute and the current regime has trued multiple times to shut it down.  Christoph explains what is at stake for Rustavi 2 and how Saakashvili has been inserting himself into the situation.  We discuss his plans to start a “revolution” by orchestrating a violent government showdown.  We also talk about Georgia’s recent descion to buy natural gas from Russia and Iran.  Christoph breaks down the reasons for this and address’ the persistan claims that the Georgian Dream Coalition is “pro-Russian.”

Next we move to Syria and the startling rumors of Chinese involvement in the war.  We discuss a series of reports about Chinese naval vessels and military advisers arriving in Syria.  Next we talk about the growing Uighur presence in places such as Jisr al Shughour and Deir ez-Zour.  We break down the increasing role of the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) with in the jihadi movement, but also their role in bringing hundreds of Uighur’s to Syria.  We explore how all of this has forced China’s hand to a degree when in comes to fighting international terrorism.

For our third section Christoph and I explore the recent shooting down of a Russian jet by the Turkish military.  We breakdown the reality of what actually happened, and provide a detailed analysis as to why Turkey carried out this action.  We talk about Russia’s recent targeting of Turkish backed Turkem fighters, and how this one was one of the major factors for Turkey downing the fighter jet.  Christoph explains how this was probably a joint US-Turkey operation separate from the NATO power structure.  Christoph also tells us about the leader of the Turkem fighters and his true identity as a Turkish national and son of a Turkish mayor.  As we round out the section we explore the ISIS oil smuggling routes that have also been bombed by Russia.  We talk about how much of this lucrative trade is being overseen and brokered Bilal Erdogan, son of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  Christoph also gives his predictions as to the sorts of steps Russia will be taking in the near future.

For our weird terrorism section we discuss South Korea’s claims that ISIS and North Korea are in league with one another.  As if that isn’t weird enough, we also touch on China’s claim that the Dailai Lama supports ISIS.

Christoph and I also briefly discuss a new media project that Sibel Edmonds is starting that both of us will be a part of.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 31 Seven Days in May

On this week’s episode we spoke with our good friend Tom Secker the host of ClandesTime.  Tom and I discussed John Frankenheimer’s  1964 classic, Seven Days in May.  Made at the behest of John F. Kennedy, this incredible film follows a Marine Colonel’s efforts to stop a military coup from being implemented by a right-wing cabal led by the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General William Matoon Scott.  Set amidst  Cold War paranoia, Seven Days in May is in many ways one of the original truther films.  Tom and I discuss  several themes within the film that mimicked real life events:  the fact that this film makes explicit mention of the parallel structure known as “Continuity of Government;”   the fact that this movie mentions, in quite specific detail, the Mount Weather FEMA facility nearly fifteen years before its existence would ever be know to the American people.  We move onto some of the real life coup d’etats within American history and how they relate to Seven Days in May.  We focus on the alleged “Business Plot” against FDR and how it was ultimately foiled by General Smedley Butler.  We also speak about the attempted Reagan assassination and how this really represented a coup by militarist neocons such as George Bush and Alexander Haig.  We explore the real-life inspiration for the antagonist in Seven Days in May, right-winger General Edwin Walker, and his connection  not only with the JFK assassination, but also with his role in supporting the narrative that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman.  Tom and I also get into the reality of who Kennedy was, and give our takes on why in fact he was murdered in Dealy Plaza.   Later we move onto the numerous bizarre connections between director John Frankenheimer and the Kennedy family.  Lastly we focus on Frankenheimer’s relationship with the RFK assassination, as well as Seven Days in May producer Edward Lewis’ foray into conspiracy culture.  Let me just add that Seven Days in May is truly a spectacular, one-of-a-kind movie.  There is nothing I can think of that really comes close to it in terms of bravery and substance.  So please do watch the film before listening to this podcast.
