Porkins Policy Radio episode 58 Watergate, Clinton, CIA, drugs, and more with Tom Secker & Guillermo Jimenez

In the first hour I am joined by Tom Secker of Spy Culture. We discuss his recent article examining the 1975 conspiracy classic Three Days of The Condor. We examine the film and its bizarre history; having former CIA Director Richard Helms on set for a day of shooting. Tom and I explore the notion that this was a first step for the CIA and their evolving relationship with Hollywood. Next we move on to the recently declassified CIA report on the Watergate scandal. We talk about the admission by the CIA that they had an active operative, Eugenio R. Martinez, among the plumbers feeding them information. Tom highlights the many important facts left out of the mainstream narrative of Watergate. Tom and I also discuss the notion that this declassification may be a warning to the current presidential candidates. Tom and I compare Nixon and Hillary Clinton, and wonder if the CIA is sending her a direct message not to mess with them.

In the second hour we are joined by Guillermo Jimenez of the Tax Revolution Institute. Guillermo begins by discussing the idea that Trump fits the mold of a South American populist leader. We discuss the general lack of sophistication when it comes to this election cycle, and political discourse in general. We also spend some time discussing the issue of drug use amongst the candidates and the office of the presidency in general. The three of us ponder if having presidents hooked on drugs is a tactic used by the Deep State to ensure control. We close out by discussing the melding of celebrity culture with politics, and the nihilistic worldview that has gripped the nation during this election.

BFP Roundtable Ron Paul and his movement: Was he the answer?

Subscribe to Boiling Frogs Post for the full episode

From Boiling Frogs Post:

With the presidential election seemingly looming over everything in this episode we look back at Ron Paul and his movement, and ask the question: Was he the answer? The three of us break down how all of us got involved in the Ron Paul Revolution and libertarian politics. We discuss how the movement represented a different choice to politics than the rest of the mainstream. Pearse Redmond shakes things up by asking whether Ron Paul was really about change, or whether he was about shifting the alternative community back into the Republican Party. We also touch on the nefarious individuals involved in the campaign that may have played a part in derailing the message of Paul. Later we move on to Rand Paul and break down how he represents a near complete reversal of his father. As we round out the conversation we explore the libertarian movement as a whole and discuss the near absence of women with in it. We also touch on why there are so few women in the alt-media, and the abhorrent way that they are treated by a majority community.

From Boiling Frogs Post:

In this introductory episode Sibel Edmonds, Guillermo Jimenez and Pearse Redmond introduce the new BFP Roundtable Season and discuss new ideas and possibilities for coming shows. From there the panel quickly moves on to its first topic: Senator Graham’s so-called smoking gun (The infamous redacted 28-pages), the possible reasons for and timing of this old pickled issue’s circulation, in conjunction with the Saudi Arabia-Yemen angle and connections. The panel heatedly debunks more than one widespread spin used by mainstream and pseudo-alternative media outlets in reporting Saudi Arabia’s assault on Yemen with the carefully-designed Iran element. And finally, the panel invites BFP activist community members to join and expand this discussion and provide their ideas for coming roundtable discussion topics.

*This is our introductory episode for the new BFP Roundtable season. The coming episodes will be here at Boiling Frogs Post, and will be available only to BFP activist members. You can subscribe and join our community here.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 2 Robert DeNiro

Guillermo Jimenez joins us for this episode to talk about Robert De Niro – a man whose relationship with the CIA spans two decades.  We look at four films – Wag the Dog, Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers and The Good Shepherd, the latter three of which have documented CIA assistance in their production.  We discuss Robert De Niro’s transformation from a serious dramatic actor into a kooky comedy figure, and the CIA’s apparent involvement in that.  This led to us asking whether the three comedy films are trojan horses for a sneaky CIA agenda, and talking about how The Good Shepherd has many flaws but this did not stop the CIA themselves from praising it as ‘probably as good as any film on the Agency’.

From Spy Culture:

Joining me for this discussion is Guillermo Jimenez along with regular guest Pearse Redmond. We talked about three recent examples of the crossover of popular culture and politics – the film The Interview, the attack on Charlie Hedbo magazine in Paris, and American Sniper. We talked about how the popular dialogue around these events has diluted and degraded the notion of freedom of speech, and outline a more careful and refined version of the same idea.

New podcast series with Tom Secker: The CIA and Hollywood

From Spy Culture:

Launching in April of this year The CIA and Hollywood is a new series by Pearse Redmond and Tom Secker.  The first season will have seven episodes where we will mostly focus on modern films, with guest appearances on five of the shows.

The full list:

Episode 1: The CIA and George Orwell

Pearse and I introduce the series and look at how George Orwell’s two major works – 1984 and Animal Farm – were both adapted into 1950s films by the CIA for propaganda purposes.  Using files from MI5, the CIA and the FBI we outline in detail the people involved in the productions and how they fit into a wider picture of what was going on in Hollywood at the time.

Episode 2: The CIA and Robert De Niro – Guest: Guillermo Jimenez

In the first guest episode we welcome Guillermo to talk about Robert De Niro’s lengthy connections to the CIA.  From Wag the Dog, where he plays a character based on CIA Entertainment Liaison Chase Brandon to the Meet the Parents film franchise which was assisted by Brandon, to his epic rewriting of CIA history in The Good Shepherd, De Niro has for nearly 20 years had some kind of relationship with the Agency.

Episode 3: The CIA and The Recruit – Guest: Aaron Franz

From one screen legend to another, Aaron joins us to discuss The Recruit starring Al Pacino.  This film was co-written by Chase Brandon and the character Pacino plays is clearly based on Chase Brandon.  This tale of a young man inducted into the secret world of the CIA is a perfect set up for inducting the audience into that same world, though what we find there is simply more layers of manipulation and doublethink.

Episode 4: The CIA and Enemy of the State – Guest: Adam of Themes and Memes

The film that predicted the entire Edward Snowden story is next on the list, when Adam joins in the discussion.  The Gene Hackman character, based on a role he played in the 1970s thriller The Conversation, foreshadows everything about Snowden, including his name and where he grew up, and the film’s depiction of mass surveillance has much the same effect on audiences as Snowden’s ‘revelations’ some 15 years later.

Episode 5: The CIA and The Social Network – Guest: Thomas Sheridan

The only film featured in this series that was not explicitly sponsored by the CIA, but which bears all the hallmarks of CIA involvement.  Thomas Sheridan joins us to examine this fictionalised account of the founding of facebook, possibly the world’s greatest ever surveillance tool.  We examine Aaron Sorkin’s career and the key information he left out of his screenplay about the early investors in facebook.

Episode 6: The CIA and Charlie Wilson’s War – Guest: Sibel Edmonds

One of Chase Brandon’s final films mythologised one of the most important events in understanding modern history – the Soviet-Afghan War and the CIA’s support of the Mujahideen.  Sibel lends us her expert knowledge as we dismantle this piece of CIA unhistory – which is also scripted by Sorkin – and construct a true version in its place.

Episode 7: The CIA and Argo

To round of this season Pearse and I take a look at the Oscar-winning Argo, produced by the unholy trio of Clooney, Heslov and Affleck, all of whom have long-standing ties to the CIA.  We examine the film not only as a deliberate mis-telling of real historical events but also as a celebration of the CIA’s very useful relationship with the Hollywood dream factory.  We reflect back on what we have learned through doing this first season, and briefly explain what to expect from season two.

 

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.
