Porkins Policy Radio episode 150 Isa Blumi Destroying Yemen Part 2

Professor Isa Blumi joins me for part 2 of our series on Yemen. We pick up in the late 90’s after Ali Abdullah Saleh has come to power in a unified Yemen. Isa discusses Saleh’s strategy of sowing chaos all over the country in order to maintain absolute power. Isa talks about Saleh’s use of extreme violence, and his reliance on US power. We then explore how the so called Arab Spring played out in Yemen. We discuss the orchestrated nature of the movement, and how is sought to control the very real desires of the Yemeni public. Isa touches on people like Tawakkol Karman and her role as a US proxy during the Arab Spring. Isa brings us all the way to Saleh’s assassination and the current state of Yemen.

Later we talk about the role that Al Qaeda plays on Yemen as a bogey man. We discuss how the US used Yemen as playground for their eventual global drone program. We address the fight going on between Saudi Arabia and the UAE in Yemen. Isa also explains the political history of Ansar Allah (Houthis) and how they are not an Iranian proxy force.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 146 Chuck Ochelli on Singapore Summit, Genocide in Yemen, and more

This week Chuck Ochelli joins me to discuss geopolitics and the problems of the world. We start off discussing the recent Singapore Summit between North Korea and the US. Chuck and I both offer our opinions and analysis of the “deal” that is being hammered out by Trump. We talk about the realities of what is actually being presented, and discuss the larger context of what this may mean for the Korean Peninsula.

In the second hour Chuck and I branch off and talk about Jeff Sessions reversal of a court ruling granting asylum to immigrants fleeing domestic violence and violence from non-state actors. We also talk about the genocide in Yemen, which could see 10 million people starve to death. Chuck and I close out the show by talking about the lack of morality and respect for human life that many here in America seem to have.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 140 In Praise of Blood by Judi Rever

Freelance journalist Judi Rever joins me this week for an in-depth discussion of her new book In Praise of Blood: The Crimes of the Rwandan Patriotic Front. Judi talks about her first experiences in the aftermath of the Rwandan Genocide while reporting in Congo in the late 1990s. Judi discusses what it was like to uncover the true nature of both the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) and its actions before, during, and after the genocide. We then move onto Paul Kagame himself and the structure of the RPF. Judi and I talk about Kagame’s life in Uganda, his close relationship with Yoweri Museveni, and his time as head of Ugandan intelligence. Judi also talks about the much feared Directorate Military Intelligence (DMI). She talks about the structure of the DMI and how it functioned as the nervous system of the genocide. We then move onto the political ideology of the RPF and what it would ultimately achieve. Judi and I discuss its extreme views which saw the mass slaughter of Hutus all across Rwanda and the seizing of land as a result. Judi talks also talks about how Kagame and the RPF have turned Rwanda into a nation of spies and informants.

In the second hour Judi and I talk about the Byumba Stadium Massacre, and how it acts as a template for RPF’s crimes throughout the genocide and afterwards. Judi explains how the RPF tactic of luring injured and starving Hutus into a central area under the pretense of providing aid was used through about the genocide. We discuss how under Kagame’s direction, burning bodies avoided the existence of mass graves, which could be discovered on satellite photos. Later on we talk about the assassination of Juvenal Habyarimana. Judi explains the reality of the assassination, which was in fact carried out by the RPF on orders from Paul Kagame. We talk about the significance of this event and how the media is beginning to openly talk about the true nature of the assassination. Judi and I also touch on western collaboration with Rwanda. Judi explains the CIA’s role in aiding Rwanda during the genocide and afterwards during its military operations in Zaire that overthrew Mobutu. We also talk about the exploitation of minerals in Congo by western companies under the auspices of the Rwandan military.
We finish the conversation by talking about Kagame’s silencing of activists, whistleblowers, and journalists in both Central Africa and Western Europe. Judi discusses the importance of speaking out and what we can do to expose Kagame and the RPF’s massive crimes.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 105 Unpacking Orphan Black with Emma Redmond

My sister Emma Redmond joins me today to discuss one of our favorite televisions shows, Orphan Black. We begin by giving an overview of the series which deals with a shadowy transhumanist organization called Neolution which is conducting large scale human cloning. We then move onto the basics: our favorite clones, our thoughts on the final season, and some of the overarching themes presented in the show. Emma and I then discuss Orphan Black as a feminist masterpiece. We talk about how the show deals with feminism in way that no other TV show has ever attempted before. We discuss how issues such as a woman’s right to choose, medical rights, and basic human freedoms are handled in a beautifully subtle way. Emma compares this to hit shows such as The Handmaidens Tale. We then move onto the subject of transhumanism which is at the core of much of the show. We explore how Orphan Black deals with the dangers of this topic while still upholding the necessity of science. Emma and I touch on the fact that Orphan Black has never strayed away from the connection between transhumanism and eugenics, unlike most other entertainment dealing with this subject matter. We also touch on themes such as designer baby companies and eradication of diseases through sterilization and abortion.

In the second hour we explore several of the archetypal transhumanist characters. We look at PT Westmoreland, an aging cult leader, who manipulates the women around him into helping him attain godhood. We discuss his charismatic nature and how he represents the most pure evil of the movement. Emma and I also discuss the characters of Susan Duncan and Virginia Coady who represent the benevolent and unquestioning elements within the Neolution movement. We then move onto the clone Rachel and explore how she is in many ways the end result of this agenda. We discuss how Rachel’s upbringing as a corporate clone has damaged her immensely. We explore how Rachel continues to strive to be free in a world where she is viewed as nothing more than patented property, and her long journey to finding her humanity. We also explore the idea of nature vs. nurture which is continually referenced through out the whole series. Emma and I round out the conversation by discussing our favorite moments, relationships, and characters in the series. We also ask the big question on everyone’s mind: Does Donnie have a Prince Albert?

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 20 The Falsification of Genocide with Keith Harmon Snow

This week we are joined by independent journalist Keith Harmon Snow for an extended conversation on the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Rwanda and it’s effect on Congo and central Africa. This is a longer podcast than usual, but one I am especially proud of. For the most part I take a back seat and just let Keith break down the truth about what actually happened during those infamous 100 days, and how that event reverberated through out Africa. Keith names names and connects a lot the dots in this complex story involving the Pentagon, multinational corporations, mass media propaganda, and the brutal slaughter of millions in the pursuit of domination and money. Keith breaks down how the Tutsi elite, with the backing if the US, UK, and Israel, actually committed the majority of war crimes and acts of genocide. We explore how this was used as the pretext to invade and rape the Eastern Congo. Keith also goes into depth regarding the imperial history of Africa. I really suggest that you read through the articles in the show notes, as well as explore all of Keith’s writing. He is a fountain of knowledge on a subject that few here in the West fully understand.
