Porkins Great Game episode 18 Grey Wolves, Marxist Sex Cults, and NATO

Christoph and I are back!  After a long hiatus we have returned with a jam packed episode.  In the first segment we discuss the bizarre “bomb plot” to attack the recent MEK Summit in Paris.  Then we explore the allegations that this was orchestrated by the Iranian government and the bogus claims by the West and Israel about a network of sleeper cells across Europe.  We then turn to a discussion about those swept up in the investigation–including an Iranian diplomat from Austria.

In the second segment Christoph and I break down the recent NATO summit in Brussels.  We focus mainly on how this impacts Germany. Trump demanded that NATO countries devote 4% GDP to NATO, also stated that Germany is too close with Russia.
For the third segment we continue discussing Germany. We talk about the rise of the Gulen movement.  Christoph explains how this has manifested after the failed coup in Turkey. We also touch on the whereabouts a several key plotters of the coup who are allegedly being protected in Berlin.

In our final segment we take a in-depth look at the recent election in Turkey. We discuss how Erdogan and his coalition partners with in the ultra-nationalist MHP swept the country.  The rise of the ultra-nationalism within the Turkey may have a dangerous impact. We discuss MHP leader Devlet Bahçeli’s recent calls for the release of two prominent ultra-nationalist mob bosses, as well as the founder of the Grey Wolves taking a seat in parliament.  We finish this segment by touching on recent joint operations between Turkey and U.S. in Northern Syria.

We close out with our traditional “weird terrorism” section.  I talk about the return of Afghanistan’s Vice President, Abdul Rashid Dostum, from self imposed exile in Turkey, which resulted from assault and rape charges.  Christoph shares an interesting interview of a former U.S. Army sniper who fought alongside the KLA in the 90’s on behalf of a foreign defense ministry.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 132 Brain Heiss on Brett Cantor, Enty and Epstein, Andrew Cunanan murders

Good friend Brian Heiss of OJSimpson.co joins us once again for a wide ranging discussion. We start by talking about a bizarre revelation in Rose McGowan’s new book that she dated Ronald Goldman’s friend Brett Cantor. In her new book Brave McGowan talks about dating Brett Cantor when she was 19 years old. Brian talks about Brett Cantor and his nightclub the Dragonfly. A club that Goldman worked at as a party promoter, and a place that Nicole Simpson frequented. We discuss Cantor’s murder and the similarities it has with the murder of Nicole and Ronald. We also touch on the Michael Nigg murder, and the connections the three of those have with another murder of one of OJ’s friends down in Florida just before the Bundy murders took place. Brian and I also discuss why McGowan has not revealed this fact until now, the MeToo movement she helped kick start, and why we hope she will pursue her boyfriends killers. We then move on to a discussion of the popular blind item gossip site Crazy Days and Nights. We talk about how the site and it’s owner “Enty” has been way ahead of many important Hollywood stories including Harvey Weinstein. Brian and I focus on Enty’s long time reporting of Jeffrey Epstein and his crimes. We talk about some recent blind items talking about Epstein flying in porn stars to his private Island for orgies involving various arms traffickers. We discuss how much of Enty’s reports are to be trusted, and what Epstein appears to be up to. We also briefly touch on Bryan Singer and his alleged pedophilia.

In the second hour Brian and I discuss the murder of Gianni Versace by Andrew Cunanan, and the new FX show about the murder. Brian gives us an overview of Cunanan and his three month murder spree in 1997. Brian talks about Cunanan’s past, including his methamphetamine abuse and love of S&M. We talk about his brutal murder of Lee Miglin and some of the strange discrepancies and possible cover up by the Chicago police in that killing. Later Brian moves onto Cunanan when he arrived in Miami and killed Versace in broad daylight, and then his suicide on the house boat of Torsten Reineck. Brian discusses Reineck’s shady past as the King of Gay Bathhouses in Las Vegas and Miami, his connections to drug traffickers and the German equivalent of the DEA. Brian also lays out the theory that Reineck and Cunanan not only knew each other, but that Reinick may have hired him to kill Versace. Brian also talks about the fact that notion that Reinick may have promised to help Cunanan flee the county after the murder, possibly bringing him to his private island “Sealand” of the coast of the United Kingdom.

Porkins Great Game episode 14 Is Kazakhstan in Trouble?

On this episode Christoph and I turn our attention to Kazakhstan and the June 5th mass shooting. We examine the attack itself, breaking down what happened and the governments swift response. We explore the socioeconomic problems facing western Kazakhstan and how this may have played a decisive role is spurring on these attacks. We discuss the recent land protests across the Central Asian nation, and give a historical overview of Aktobe, including the role of western Kazakhstan in propping up the ruling regime.

Next we move on to the recent killing of Taliban leader Mullah Mansoor. Less than a year after his rise to power Mansoor was killed by a US drone strike in yet another blow to the peace process. Christoph and I explain the precedent set by the US in not only targeting the top Taliban leader, but also having the strike take place in the spiritual and operational city of Quetta. We consider Pakistan’s strong condemnation of the US for breaking its commitment to forging a lasting peace between Kabul and the Taliban. We examine Mansoor’s frequent travel to Dubai, Bahrain, and Iran, as well as his Pakistani passport. Christoph explains the reasons behind Mansoor’s frequent travel to Iran. We also touch on the increasing violence in Northern Afghanistan which is slowly getting the attention of the US and Russia.

Lastly, we discuss the recent row between Germany and Turkey over Germany’s parliamentary recognition of the Armenian genocide. We review the litany of harsh remarks from Erdogan and his government against Germany. Christoph gives us his perspective from within Germany as to how this is playing out there. He also discusses the satirical video put out by Jan Bohmermann about Erdogan and how this plays into the tense relationship between Turkey and Germany.

We finish off with our “weird terrorism” segment by looking at several interesting stories: the CIA-Pentagon fight over supporting Al Nusra; the release of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, an update on Alparslan Celik.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 44 Homeland Season 5 ep 11

On this penulitamte episode of our Homeland series Tom and I begin by venting about our hatred of Alison.  Next we move onto the shows continual use of women as negative characters.  WE discuss the similarities between Alison and real life Russian spy Anna Chapman.  We look at the parallels between these two characters and the notion that Alison will receive a hero’s welcome if she returns to Russia.  Next we explore if the Russian government would actually let an attack happen, as Homeland suggests, in order to galvanize the West to fight ISIS.  Tom and I lay out some of our theories as to why the Russian’s don’t talk about the Gladio operations (Boston, 9/11, Paris) that they clearly are aware of.  We discuss the emergence of yet another evil female spy this time in the form of a German Foreign Office offical.  Later Tom and I discuss one of the major takeaways from this season: that the CIA no longer engages in torture.  Through out this season we have seen several distinct plot lines that lead us to believe that the CIA no longer uses this brutal tactic.  Tom and I discuss the moral issues surrounding torture and the aspects of torture that are never brought up in the debate.  We discuss how the show uses the character of Marwan to illustrate that torture doesn’t work, and how this is most likely a deliberate propaganda move to wipe clean the CIA’s hands.  We also note how the show has routinely made the German’s look not only like torturers, but Nazi’s and Stasi as well.  Tom and I also touch on Hollywoods false portrayal of strong female characters in movies such as Spy, and how this is really just more of the same.  Later we move onto the portrayal of Laura Poitras in the show and how this may reflect the CIA’s various desires to portray her as hero and villain.  We round off the conversation by discussing some very interesting listener emails and tweets.

Tom and I briefly talk about our participation in a brand new media project being spearheaded by Sibel Edmonds at the end of the podcast.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 38 Homeland season 5 ep. 1

In honor of our favorite CIA television show, Homeland, Tom Secker and I have decided to cover every single episode with a separate podcast. We’ll be switching off hosting duties every other week.

In this inaugural episode, we take a brief look back to where all of our favorite characters left off at the end of season 4. Jumping ahead two and a half years, we see that Carrie has left the CIA, Saul has been promoted, and Quinn seems as crazy as ever. Tom and I discuss the new setting of this season, Berlin, and the implications of locating it in Western Europe. We also get into some of the major plot themes being laid out including: Edward Snowden, mass surveillance, ISIS and the threat of Islamic sleeper cells all over Europe. We break down how this season seems geared towards more of a niche audience immersed in the intelligence world, and round out this episode with our predictions for the rest of the season.

Q Lazzarus – “Goodbye Horses”

Prominent German journalist admits to being puppet of CIA

A prominent German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, has admitted to acting as tool of CIA in its never ending quest to control public opinion.  The former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (one of Germany’s leading daily newspapers) referred to himself as one of many journalists who worked for the agency under “non-official cover.”  He knowingly printed stories he knew to be false that came directly from CIA talking points.  He revealed this information to Russia Today because he felt that war with Russia is becoming ever more likely, and that he no longer wanted to take part in fomenting this anti-Russian, pro-war hatred.  For more on the story please check out this recent Washington’s Blog article.

Germany about to enter neo-colonial war in Mali

The Bundestag has approved the deployment of 330 military personal to Mali to help France and AFRICOM’s colonial conquest.  This comes on the back of a recent operation by French forces in a village near the strategic city of Gao.  It wasn’t that long ago that France and much of Europe condemned America for their colonial war in Iraq.   Amazing what a few years can do to a population and its leaders.
