Porkins Policy Radio episode 86 Homeland Predicted the Deep State and Alex Jones with Tom Secker

Tom Secker returns for the second installment of our discussion on the sixth season of Homeland. We begin with a quick recap of the past several episodes before diving into the big themes going on this season. Tom and I begin by focusing on the character of Dar Adal and the notion that he represents a faction of the now infamous deep state. We talk about the mysterious private intelligence firm that Adal is using for assassinations, false flag bombings, and information operations. Tom and I discuss what exactly the CIA is getting out of having their favorite TV portray such a nefarious and shadowy organization at the center of the season plot-line. We also touch on the fact that the CIA is virtually nonexistent in this season and what that may mean. The two of us talk about the fact that Homeland has successfully made this whole season revolve around the meme of “fake news” and big data as a powerful tool for manipulation. We talk about the fact that these ideas were woven into the script months before they became talking points for the general public. Tom talks about the power of the fake news meme as a tool of the CIA and National Security State. We also explore the character of Brett O’Keefe who is the greatest characterization of Alex Jones ever. Tom and I talk about O’Keefe’s role as a deep state contractor for Dar Adal, and his efforts to create sock puppet accounts to influence public opinion.

In the second hour Tom ask the question if the CIA is telling us that Alex Jones is in fact an agency asset through Homeland. We explore the various interpretations of the O’Keefe – Jones character and what the CIA may be trying to tell us about the alt-media and conspiracy culture in general. Tom also tells us about his articles in The American Journal of Economics and Sociology. I finish off the show by discussing the increasingly dire situation in Yemen and why no one is talking about it.

Tom Secker and I were recently guests on Len Osanic’s Black Op Radio. We discussed The CIA and Hollywood series and specifically our episode on The Quiet American and Edward Lansdale. We discuss the theory that Lansdale was acting as a former ad-executive and was attempting to sell war in South East Asia. Tom and I also talk about the CIA’s use of George Orwell as propaganda, Charlie Wilson, and why government interference in cinema and culture is so dangerous.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 77 Homeland Season 6 with Tom Secker and Breaking News with Robbie Martin

In the first hour Tom Secker joins me to discuss the season premier of Homeland season six. We talk about the season reboot which has become a ubiquitous feature of Homeland. Tom and I begin by discussing our initial impressions of the season and where we think the show is going on a political and emotional level. Next we move onto one of the new and most interesting characters in the show, President-elect Elizabeth Keane, the junior Senator from New York. We talk about how this character is not a character of Hillary Clinton as we and any others predicted, but instead a much more complex character which in many ways is closer to Donald Trump. We discuss the ideas and politics that the CIA is putting forth in this new season. Tom and I talk about how the notion of the CIA plotting against the president-elect is not only a major story line in Homeland but also in real life vis-a-vis Trump and the CIA. The two of us also talk about the idea that this season of Homeland will retell and reinvent the story of Al Qaeda. We explore the possibility that this is the overarching story the CIA wants to put out the the public, and that a new form or wave of jihadi attacks may be in-store for the West.

In the second hour frequent guest Robbie Martin joins us to discuss some of the latest political and geopolitical events. We begin by exploring the childish discourse from both Trump and the media over the past several weeks. Next we talk about our opinions of the recent “intelligence report” claiming that Trump is a Russian Manchurian candidate. We talk about our thoughts on the possibility of violence erupting between Israel and Palestine. Robbie and I focus on some of the strange stories coming about of Israel including: Israeli jets bombing Damascus, and US officials warning Israel not to share intelligence with Trump. The Two of us discuss our feelings on increased rhetoric of the all powerful Russian state against our quaint democratic life in the US. Robbie and I touch on the recent commutation of Chelsea Manning and the possibility that Julian Assange will stand trial in America. We also talk about Glenn Greenwald’s recent use of the term Deep State. Robbie and I round out the conversation by discussing some of our fears overs Trump’s domestic policies.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 15 Salt

Rounding off this second season we take a look at SALT, the 2010 action thriller starring Angelina Jolie as a CIA officer accused of being a Russian sleeper agent. We chart the development of the film, from its origins as an attempt to recreate the Bourne franchise, through Amy Pascal and Jolie’s conversations about making a female-led spy thriller. SALT is one of the less well known CIA-assisted productions, but along with technical advice from former CIA officer Melissa Boyle Mahle the producers also consulted with the CIA themselves in a video conference. The producers also employed Kurt Wimmer, one of the screenwriters from The Recruit. There is also a very weird story involving one of the extras in the opening sequence in North Korea.
We analyse the mystery of Evelyn Salt’s underwear and then the conversation hones in on Russia, who in 2010 were not on the news agenda, and how this movie predicted the rise of the ‘new Cold War’ that is commonplace in most current spy films and TV shows. The whole notion of a sleeper agent Russian spy ring was risible at the time but before long this exact story hit the news in a big way. We touch on the transhuman disguise that Jolie employs in the film and how this relates both to Argo and to Mission: Impossible, two other CIA-assisted movies. We round off looking back on season 2 of The CIA and Hollywood and suggest a possibility for doing season 3 in a different way.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 29 The Lone Gladio with Sibel Edmonds

On this week’s episode we had the great pleasure of speaking with the one and only Sibel Edmonds of Boiling Frogs Post.  Sibel is, of course, a former FBI linguist and whistle-blower who had the draconian State Secrets Privilege enacted against her, essentially classifying her entire life.  Sibel joined us to discuss her brand new novel, The Lone Gladio, which elaborates on many subjects discussed in her memoir Classified Woman: The Sibel Edmonds Story.  This modern spy thriller deals exclusively with the Deep State and the secretive NATO/CIA/MI6/Pentagon program know as “Operation Gladio B.”   Sibel and I discuss her decision to portray the CIA characters not as James Bond-style heroes, but as the dark, complicated, and often brutal people they truly are.  Sibel also goes into detail about the geopolitical aspects of her new novel, which we explore, including how nations such as Georgia (featured prominently in The Lone Gladio) are being used by NATO and Gladio operatives as a launching ground for false-flag terror in Russia and around the globe.  We also go into how Gladio B came about in the early 1990’s.  Sibel explains how language, culture and religion were manipulated in Central Asia and the Caucus region in order to create the very terror groups that we claim to be fighting today.  We finish off our conversation by exploring who is at the top of this destructive pyramid of control and terrorism.  The Lone Gladio has reinvented the spy thriller as we know it.  For anyone interested in the mechanics of the Deep State and its relationship to false flag terror, drug trafficking, media manipulation, blackmail, sex trafficking and more:  Please go out and purchase a copy of this book!  Honestly,  this is one of the most important books to come out in decades.

De-Manufacturing Consent-Fear and Fake Journalism: Is the ISIS Propaganda Working?

I recently joined Guillermo Jimenez on De-Manufacturing Consent to discuss ISIS, Mathew VanDyke, Steven Sotloff, and a whole lot more.  To listen to the full podcast become a member of Boiling Frogs Post here.

FYI, I myself am a member and can honestly say it is the best $50.00 a year you are likely to spend on real alternative media.

 

From Boiling Frogs Post:

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by Pearse Redmond, host of Porkins Policy Radio. Pearse breaks down the enigmatic character of Matthew Van Dyke, the former “journalist” turned freedom fighter in Libya, who Pearse refers to as the “CIA’s favorite mercenary.” We discuss his relationship with both James Foley and Steven Sotloff — journalists allegedly kidnapped, murdered, and beheaded by the Islamic State and used in propaganda videos — and the implications of their association with a deceitful, phony journalist, self-professed propagandist, and potential CIA asset.

We also discuss the ongoing fear mongering regarding ISIS, their supposed infiltration of Cuidad Juarez, Mexico, and their plot to sneak across the US border and use Mexican drug cartels to “take out a power grid” in the United States. We detail how such an outlandishly ridiculous story took shape and spread throughout the media, perfectly timed to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11, and how certain sectors of the “alternative media” are feeding into this latest round of fear-based propaganda.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 24 Who is Samantha Lewthwaite?

This week’s episode was a long time in the making, but it is one that I am especially proud of.  I had on Tom Secker and Jon Ryman to discuss Jon’s superb film White Widow- The Samantha Lewthwaite Conspiracy.  I would encourage everyone to go and watch the film first, as there is so much detail that Jon goes into.  The three of us discuss the origins of Samatha Lewthwaite; from her birth in Northern Ireland during the troubles, to her “conversion” to Islam and subsequent betrothal to 7/7 bomber Germain Lindsay, and later to her supposed place of importance with in Al Shabab in Somalia.  We explore the notion that Lewthawaite may not have ever been in Kenya, one of her alleged bases of operations, and instead may be part of a much larger and complex intelligence operations.  We also discuss the Westgate shopping mall attack and how Lewthawaite was erroneously connected to it, as well as the geopolitical implications of the recent uptick in violence in Kenya and the African continent in general.  We round of the conversation with a look at how the War on Terror has blurred fiction and reality.  This is another long podcast that deals with a subject that is little understood and deserves more attention.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 21 Four Lions with Tom Secker

This week we are joined once again by our good friend Tom Secker to discuss one of Tom’s favorite movies, the black comedy Four Lions, which revolves around of group of young men living in Sheffield England who decide to become suicide bombers .  If you have not seen the film, then please go to the show notes and click on the link and watch it.  It will blow you away and will make this conversation much more enjoyable.  Tom and I discuss the way the film deconstructs many of the familiar terrorism memes and cliches, and presents us with a side that we never, ever see.  We explore the many similarities between Four Lions and the 7/7 terror attacks, including the notion that the whole movie may be revolving around an MI5 operation.  We round off the conversation by looking at how this film humanizes people whom we would generally write off as fanatical murders.

Investigating the Terror

Boston Bombing still requires real investigation

Remember the Boston Marathon Bombing? It was that terrorist event which resulted in a massive manhunt, martial law in Boston, and lots more questions than answers. Well, the corporate media surely doesn’t want you to remember it. Hence their lack of investigative reporting on what really transpired that day and in the ensuing days. The Washington Post quietly penned an article today reporting on the clearing of an FBI agent who repeatedly shot (including execution style) the only person who may have been able to provide any information of the two alleged suspects. This time around the corporate rag has stuck to the story that Ibragim Todashev attacked the FBI agent with a metal pole, and not a katana, baseball bat, broom handle, or any of the other number of weapons he was alleged to have used against the two armed Feds. Aside from that, we have heard next to nothing from the corporate controlled media, aside from the official story. That official story being:
1) Two Chechen Americans planted bombs at the Marathon, for which there is no video evidence
2) eluded the powerful security state apparatus of America
3) killed an MIT police officer; seemingly for no reason
4) car jacked a person called “Danny” and confessed their crime to him
5) had a shoot-out and lobbed IED’s at police that resulted in the ringleader either being shot or run over, which allowed the other brother to somehow escape while the city of Boston was in military-style lockdown
6) culminated in yet another massive shoot out in which the remaining suspect was repeatedly shot, including in the throat, and with his diminishing strength somehow wrote a confession on the inside if the boat he was hiding in

Oh, and just an an aside
1) the brothers’ uncle was married to the daughter of notorious CIA agent Graham Fuller. While living in his house working for CIA front USAID in Central Asia he founded a “charity” that was later found out to be a front for Chechen terrorists.
2) one brother allegedly attended a CIA-connected Jamestown Foundation meeting
3) the other brother had an academic advisor who is not only former CIA, but also teaches the only college course on Chechen studies
4) and they were on several terror-watch lists

The alternative media by and large has not been of much help either. Rather than do the investigative work that needs to be done, they have instead fallen into the disinformation trap, that is, claims that  “it was all fake”– from crisis actors and fake blood, to the bizarre theory that there were no explosions. As my good friend Tom Secker has stated numerous times, the alt media is either lazy or incapable of doing real investigative reporting. By walking into this cul de sac the crime will never be solved and we in the alt media do a great disservice to everyone concerned with the finding  the truth.

Fortunately a few in the alt media have been attempting to investigate what happened in Boston. Principal among them is WhoWhatWhy.com, which has continued to do on-the-ground reporting on the bombing. Editor in chief Russ Baker recently wrote a two-part (part I, part II) article dissecting the major holes in the car-jacking scenario. As I mentioned above the whole official conspiracy theory hinges on an anonymous witness whose story simply does not hold up. I would urge everyone to read not only that, but all of their other pieces on the Boston Bombing. Guillermo Jimenez and Mad Cow Productions have also done some great reporting on the myriad connections between the security services and the Tsarnaev family. When I started the podcast for this website, I made it a point to have the first episode focus entirely on the bombing.

So why does this matter? The simple reason is that this is a crime. Crimes need to be solved. We cannot sit by and let the pressitutes regurgitate the company line. And furthermore, we in the alt media movement cannot simply lap up the most outlandish theories. If we allow this to happen then we let the power elite win and we allow them to control us. Buying into ridiculous theories shuts down the whole argument. Why look into Danny and his preposterous story if the bombing was all staged in advance? Something much larger and deeper happened on the morning of April 15, 2013. In the coming months there may not even be a trial. The defense may simply take a plea deal to spare the life of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Without a trial the secrets of what happened could very well die. That death will reverberate through our society. Many of us need to pull our heads out of the sand and start thinking critically. Boston set a very terrifying precedent in the sordid history of the American security state. This must be countered with hard facts. So please do some real research and question everything. The alt media has come a long way but I fear that it is falling into a black hole from which it may not be able to escape.

The clearing of the FBI, along with the state’s reliance on a sole anonymous witness who has changed his story three times, is part of the cover up. If the alt media drops the ball on this one we have no one to blame but ourselves.
