Porkins Policy Radio episode 181 Robbie Martin on Israeli Art Students, ecstasy trafficking, and Russiagate victory laps

This week good friend Robbie Martin joined me to discuss his latest podcast for Media Roots Radio, Ecstasy, Israeli Art Students, and the Mossad. We talk about the importance of the phenomenon of the so called Israeli art students and why it deserves more attentions. Robbie and I touched on how this story tends to get brushed aside by many in the conspiracy community, in favor of the Dancing Israelis and right wing theories about 9/11. Robbie talks about the history of the Israeli art students and how this spy ring operated inside America during 2000-2001. We discussed the spy rings general tactics of selling art to government employees, either at their places of business or in their homes. Robbie talked about the spy rings intense focus on DEA facilities and employees. We talked about the connections between the art students and the international ecstasy trade which was dominated by Israeli organized crime. We went in depth on the DEA internal report of this topic which also alleged that the activities of the Israeli art students might have been linked to the ecstasy trade. Later Robbie talks about the groups activities in Hollywood, Florida and why several art students lived next door to Mohammed Atta. We discussed the possibility that this was some sort of surveillance operation on Al Qaeda targets. We also touched on the Israeli telecommunications company Amdocs and how they fit into the larger story. Robbie also talked about his interview with Emanuel Sferios of Dance Safe who was also approached by the Israeli art students.

In the second hour we talked a bit more about the history of ecstasy and the international ecstasy trade. We explored Israeli organized crime cornered the market on the pill. We discussed its interesting history as a therapeutic drug, a club drug in Texas, to its eventual arrival in Rave culture. I also touched on the RAVE Act and Joe Biden’s connection to it. Robbie and I also talked about how opaque this story is and why it is so difficult to parse out what was really going on. We finished out the episode by talking about the never-ending story known as Russiagate. Robbie and I called about some of the prominent journalists taking extended victory laps such as Michael Tracy and Matt Taibbi. We talked about our issues with how they are presenting the narrative and ultimately continuing the cycle of distraction and grifting. We finished off by discussing how the right has co-opted the anti war and free speech movements and how it connects to Russiagate.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 76 The CIA as Organized Crime with Douglas Valentine

My guest today is the great Douglas Valentine. Doug joins me to discuss his latest book The CIA as Organized Crime. We begin by looking at why Doug decided to write this book and the way in which it is structured. Next we delve into Doug’s relationship with the CIA and how he came to write about it’s inner-workings. Doug talks about his relationship with the agency and how he began getting access to operatives and officials while writing The Phoneix Program, including his meetings with former CIA Director William Colby. Doug also talks about how the agency attempted to co-opt him with money and a job, and their monitoring of his activities and research. Doug and I also talk about how the agency has grown and evolved from the late 1940’s to the present. We also touch on the recent anti-Russian media operations the CIA is involved with. Doug explains how this is both a distraction and a divide and conquer tactic that the CIA has perfected over the years.

In the second hour Doug explains how his research into the CIA led him to explore and write two books chronicling the narcotics trade and the War on Drugs. Doug talks about the way in which the CIA took over the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and later the DEA. We talk about how important the drug trade is to the CIA and how it is a cornerstone of the agency and its operations. I finish off by talking about several exciting upcoming episodes coming out in the next two months.
