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 175 John Potash Drugs as Weapons Against Us

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 this connects to the CIA’s MK Ultra program. We touched on how the CIA and their connected groups used LSD to derail and destroy leftist and revolutionary organizations throughout the 60’s and 70’s. 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. John and I also discuss how drugs were used against radical musicians including Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and Tupac Shakur. We finish off the conversation by looking at the continued legacy of many of these operations. John talks about the work that the Heffter Institute and Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies are doing and their similarities to MK Ultra.
