Porkins Poliy Radio episode 112 Stephen Paddock, Vegas Shooting, and Lack of Logical Thinking

On this solo show I discuss the Vegas Shooting and Stephen Paddock. I start off by talking about the Vegas Police and their track record as being unprofessional and trigger happy. The allegations that the police didn’t help evacuate the concert, and that the cover up my stem from their failures are explored. I then begin laying out the facts as we know them about the shooting, Paddock and Marilou Danley. I look into the ever changing narrative, including the latest development regarding hotel security guard Jesus Campos. Then I explore Stephen Paddock and try to make sense of who he was. I look at the reports that he was a mean loner type person, as well as an avid gun enthusiast. I pay particular attention to his obsessive gambling habits and the odd life of a compulsive gambler. Later I discuss his girlfriend Marilou Danley and try to make sense of their relationship. The first hour ends with me looking at some of the more interesting points of this investigation including: what happened beginning in October of 2016 and his fathers criminal background.

In the second hour I take a hard look at the media’s role in crafting this story. I explore how both the the mainstream and conspiracy media are working hand in hand in presenting us a confused and contradictory narrative. I talk about how the media is selling us not just the shooting but literally selling us advertisements. I also discuss why the mainstream and conspiracy media enjoy having complete explanations to any event. I finish off by discussing Paddock’s apparent gambling addiction and ponder if this didn’t play a larger role in the shooting. I talk about the lifestyle of gamblers, the problems they face, and how this effects their views on reality. I also touch on the transhumanist aspects of being “one with the machine” that many addicts of video slots embrace. I ask the question if gambling addiction and the casino’s are two big culprits in what transpired on October 1st 2017.

The Opperman Report: Pearse Redmond on Claude Taylor, Jeffrey Epstein Updates and much more

I joined good friend Ed Opperman to discuss some of the latest so called revelations regarding Jeffrey Epstein and his sexual trafficking enterprise. I talk about the numerous armchair investigators that continually repackage old material as breaking news when it comes to this case. I go into detail about Claude Taylor, a low level Clinton administration employee, and his claims about both Trump and Epstein. Ed and I talk about the problems with Taylor’s story and his bizarre background. I also touch on his relationship with Louise Mensch and Taylor’s claims of having a source within Eric Schneiderman’s office. Later I talk about the media cycle of a Jeffrey Epstein story and offer my theory and analysis as to how and why they happen the way they do. I also talk about the rehabilitation of Alan Dershowitz and his meeting in Mar A Lago with Trump shortly after coming into office.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 82 Ed Opperman on Epstein Case/ 75th Anniversary of Executive Order 9066

Ed Opperman joins me in the first hour to discuss some of the latest news regarding the ongoing Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislane Maxwell cases. Ed and talk about Mike Cernovich and his recent attempts to unseal Ghislane Maxwell’s motion for summary judgment. We discuss how Alan Dershowitz has recently submitted a memorandum in full support of Cernovich. Ed and I talk about how bizarre it is for a lawyer of Dershowitz’s stature to attach himself to someone as unhinged as Cernovich. Ed and I contemplate what could be in Maxwell’s summary judgment that would make Dershowitz go through all this trouble. Later Ed and I rant about the way in which the Trump supporters are handling these sorts of stories. We talk about their ability to ignore every story linking the God Emperor Trump to Epstein and his crimes. Ed and I also rant about YouTube conspiracy celebrity George Webb and his ability to spin utter bullshit into conspiracy-crack.

In the second hour I start off by talking about the settlement in the Melania Trump and Webster Tarpley defamation suit. I also talk about the Melania’s new suit against The Daily Mail and the use of lawyer Charles Harder to represent her. Harder is the former lawyer of Hulk Hogan who helped destroy Gawker, and early enemy of Jeffrey Epstein. I also briefly touch on the Peter Theil connection to the Gawker suit. I finish of the show by discussing the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, the act which saw 110,000 people of Japanese descent imprisoned in concentration camps within the United States. I talk about how this has become a largely ignored piece of American history. I lay out how the mind set of the 1940’s is beginning to take shape again today. I also rant about liberals and my complete and utter contempt for them in the Age of Trump.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 66 Al Sharpton: FBI Informant

On today’s episode I take a close look at the Reverend Al Sharpton’s work as a confidential informant for the FBI. I discuss his time as CI-7 and how this formed the man that Sharpton would become later in life. I begin with his early years working at Spring Records and how this initiated Sharpton into the world of organized crime. I look at his connections with the Gambino and Genovese crime families, and how an FBI cocaine sting led him to become one of the Bureau most protected and valuable informants. I discuss Sharpton’s relationships with mafioso luminaries such as Joseph “Joe Bananas” Bonanno, Daniel Pagano, Matthew “Matty the Horse” Ianniello, and many others. I also discuss Sharpton’s relationship with heroin trafficker and record producer Robert Curington, who was integral to Sharpton’s fame and power. I also break down how Sharpton’s work informing on the Mafia led to some of the biggest cases in FBI history, including some aimed at Genovese family boss, Vincent “Chin” Gigante. Later I look at allegations that Sharpton was also informing on black revolutionaries and activists during the 1980’s. I explore the allegation that Sharpton was working with the FBI to locate legendary Black Panther Assata Shakur.

Later I discuss Sharpton’s ever evolving public persona and how he may still be working with the government today. I break down how Sharpton has publicly spoken out against ripping off black musicians and the problem of drugs in the black community while simultaneously working with the very people responsible for these crimes. I also point out how several mafia figures and Sharpton himself have been mirrored in the television show The Sopranos. I finish off by ranting about Anthony Wiener, how disgusted I am at the election, and link it to figures like Al Sharpton.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 62 OJ Simpson Theories and Lies with Brian Heiss and Ed Opperman

Today we continue our series looking at the 21st anniversary of the OJ Simpson trial with return guests Brian Heiss and Ed Opperman. The three of us explore a wide variety of theories surrounding the case. We begin by looking at some of the false theories put out again and again by the media such as, Jason Simpson or Glenn Rogers as the killer. Next we move onto the issue of Joey Ippolito being behind the murder and his connections to all of the principle and secondary persons involved in the case. Brian explains some of his recent research into OJ friend Donald Soffer his connection to the Bronco chase, and to notorious drug trafficker Joey Ippolito. The three of us discuss what the Bronco chase may have really been about, and how this is still one of the least understood events of the case. Later we explore the role of celebrity culture in creating many of the personalities surrounding the trial. We focus particularly on Faye Resnick’s rise to stardom in the aftermath of the murder of her best friend. The three of us also discuss the role that domestic abuse played in the trial and in the public’s conception of what transpired on June 12 1994. As we round out the discussion we pick a part some of the media’s favorite false facts, such as OJ stopping his arthritis medicine, and how these have made their way into the public’s mind. We also manage to mention Trump and his various connections to OJ Simpson.

The one and only Ed Opperman joins us today on a special pre-recorded episode for a wide ranging conversation.

We explore the role that the Secret Service plays in deep-state events such as JFK, and the Reagan shooting. Ed discusses his PI work which has focused on Secret Service malfeasance. We also discuss a what if scenario, in which Hillary is incapacitated in office and Bill steps in.

In the second hour Ed and I commiserate a bit about the alt-media. We talk about the strains that it can put on your life as well as why it is so necessary in your society. Ed and I both discuss why the alt-media needs to grow up and start doing serious work. Later we talk about the “moral dilemma” that many have over the use of advertisers in alt-media. We also touch on the notion that Russia and other foreign powers may be infiltrating and massaging certain sectors of the alternative movement. We finish off by talking about one of my favorite New York characters, private investigator Bo Deitl.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 9 Good Night and Good Luck

We welcome Ed Opperman to the series and discuss the 2005 docudrama Good Night, and Good Luck which retells the story of the 1954 confrontation between senator Joe McCarthy and television journalist Ed Murrow of CBS. McCarthy was pursuing Communists within the State Department and other government agencies and innocent people were getting caught in the crossfire, creating a climate of suspicion, mistrust and hostility. Murrow used his prime time series See It Now to attack McCarthy and the culture and mentality of McCarthyism, showing the senator to be a hypocrite who persecuted his targets.

This is the story that is told in Good Night, and Good Luck, a film born out of the creative relationship between George Clooney and Grant Heslov. In this episode we take a sideways look at the historical events and ask why Clooney and Heslov chose to lionise not just Murrow but the whole See it Now/CBS crew. We try to persuade Ed of an alternative interpretation of events, with Murrow not quite being the heroic counter-establishment figure he is in the film and CBS being a rotten media organisation with deep ties to the CIA. We then explore how almost everyone involved in Good Night, and Good Luck had either already made a film with CIA assistance, or went on to do so. We round off talking about Clooney’s bizarre Las Vegas connection, E Michael Burke, George Steinbrenner and (inevitably) Donald Trump.
