Porkins Policy Radio episode 189 Lizzy on Al Kamandjati and how to help in Palestine / George Nader Arrest

This week I am joined once again my good friend Lizzy to discuss her work in Palestine. Lizzy began by talking about her own personal journey which has led her to live and work full time in Ramallah. We discussed her work with Al Kamandjati, a non-profit which offers world-class music lessons for Palestinian children. We talked about the mission of Al Kamandjati and its founder Ramzi Aburedwan. Lizzy talked about Aburedwan’s life growing up in the Al Amari refugee camp and how this led him to create the organization. Lizzy touched on the day to day struggles that Palestinians face including night raids, checkpoints, and violence at the hands of the IDF. She talked about her own personal experiences dealing with this trauma. Lizzy and I talked about several people she knew who were murdered by the IDF and the psychological toll on the families involved. Later we discussed ways for people to get involved. Lizzy talked about the need for people to simply educate themselves about the reality of the situation. We also talked about simple ways for people to organize here in the US. Later we touched on the complacency and apathy in the US when it comes to the plight of the Palestinians, and how we can overcome this.

In the second hour, I change gears and talked about the recent news that international fixer, Trump transition team member, and convicted pedophile, George Nader, was arrested in JFK Airport for possession of child pornography. I talk about the roots of this case which stemmed from his 2018 arrest in Dulles Airport. I touched on his cooperation with Robert Mueller and the strange way he was “let go” and allowed to return to the UAE. I discussed some of the truly heinous charges against Nader. I also talked about what this may mean in the larger context of Trump World.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 187 Jon Gold and Adam Fitzgerald on 9/11 lawsuit and FBI FOIA

This week Jon Gold joined me once again to talk about two recent 9/11 related news stories and the varying degrees of attention they have received in the media. We started off by discussing the recent developments in the 9/11 Victims and Families lawsuit against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Jon and I discussed their latest attempts to force the FBI to reveal the name of a high ranking Saudi government official who was overseeing two Saudi operatives in the United States who provided material support to at least two of the hijackers. We talked about these operatives, Fahad al-Thumairy and Omar al Bayoumi, and their role in helping hijackers Khalid al-Mihdar and Nawaf al-Hazmi. Jon talked about the importance of this particular lawsuit and the continued emotional trauma this has had on the victims and families of 9/11.

Later we discussed the recent FOIA release of the so-called Dancing Israelis which included photocopies of a handful of the infamous photographs taken on 9/11. Jon and I talked about Urban Moving Systems and emphasis that the 9/11 Truth community puts on this particular story.

In the second hour, we continued this conversation along with researcher Adam Fitzgerald. We explored Urban Moving Systems further, talking about their possible connections to some of the hijackers. The three of us also touched on the hijackings themselves and the discrepancies and anomalies that took place that day. We also touched on how films like United 93 have colored our understanding of the event itself. We closed out the conversation by talking about the importance of 9/11 in the current geopolitical landscape, and how it goes a long way to explaining the situation we find ourselves in today.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 183 Kevin Gosztola on Julian Assange and Criminalizing Journalism

This week friend of the show Kevin Gosztola of Shadowproof.com joined me to discuss the latest developments with Julian Assange. Kevin explained the charges that have been brought against Assange and the spin they have received in the media. He talked about the use of term “hacking” and why that is, in fact, an incorrect definition of what Assange has actually been charged with. Kevin also talked about Chelsea Manning who is still in jail after losing a recent appeal. Kevin also talked about the 2017 FBI affidavit which is the theory for the government’s case against Assange, should he be extradited back to the US. Kevin talked about the language used in the affidavit and its similarity to the Espionage Act. We also talked about the government’s theory that Assange aided the enemy through the publication of the Afghanistan War Logs. We discussed how this could set a dangerous precedent for all journalism. Later Kevin and I explored the larger implications of the US government’s attacks on Assange and journalism in general. We touched on the criminalization of basic journalistic practices like eliciting information from sources and protecting sources. We also talked about how this could be used against foreign and Americans journalists across the world. We closed out the first hour by talking about Ecuadorian president Moreno.

In the second hour, I talked about CIA director Gina Haspel’s recent speech and Q&A at Auburn University. I talked about Haspel as the director of the CIA and how she has differed from recent directors.

Ronald Burgess regarding Guantanamo Bay.
