Porkins Policy Radio episode 87 MLK Assassination 49 Years Later with Doug Valentine

Doug Valentine joins me to discuss the 49th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. We begin by discussing Doug’s involvement with the King families civil case against alleged co-conspirator Loyd Jowers. Doug talks about how and why he was hired by King family lawyer William Pepper and the aspects that he was tasked with investigating. Doug discusses his time in Memphis interviewing witnesses to the crime, some of whom had never been questioned by police. Doug also describes the bigger meaning behind Kings murder, and how it represented the everyday murder of black Americans through out the country. We then move on to some of the specifics of the case itself. Doug and I explore some of the core pieces of evidence that point to a larger government conspiracy. Doug talks about Loyd Jowers and his connection with alleged assassin James Earl Ray, as well as how Ray was able to flee the country and travel around on fake passports. Doug describes how the Memphis police detail guarding King was removed and how at least one undercover police officer, Marrell McCollough, was inserted into the King entourage. Doug also goes into detail about the allegations that US Army personnel were stationed in the near by firehouse in order to film the assassination. Doug also touches on mafia involvement in the assassination, and the links this has to the CIA. We finish off the first hour by talking about the importance of the 1999 civil trial against Loyd Jowers. Doug and I talk about the significance of a jury being able to come to the conclusion that the government was capable of conspiring to murder Martin Luther King.

In the second hour I talk about a few more intriguing aspects of the King assassination. I talk about Reverend Billy Kyles bizarre Freudian slip in which he appears to admit foreknowledge of the murder. And I also elaborate on Marrell McCollough and the fact that he later worked for the CIA. I finish off the episode by discussing King’s greatest and most controversial speech, Beyond Vietnam. I talk about the significance of King’s assassination taking place on the one year anniversary of Beyond Vietnam. I also talk about King’s message that poverty, racism, materialism, and militarism are all intrinsically linked to one another. I finish off by discussing how the media has white-washed the legacy and radicalism of Martin Luther King.

Meet James Kirchick: Neocon propagandist

20140307-131500.jpg

By now I am sure we have all heard about the resignation of Liz Wahl, and the public condemnation of Putin by Abby Martin. Both worked/work for Russia Today, and both have created a media storm here in the west. Apparently Liz Wahl just discovered that she was working for a Russian government-funded news outlet and was shocked, shocked I tell you, to discover that they had a bias towards Russia. Liz Wahl, of course, got her start interning for the always fair and balanced Fox News. In the background of these stories has been an American propagandist neocon by the name of James Kirchick. Kirchick has been seen in recent days on the three letter corporate controlled news outlets spewing all sorts of lies and slander. He took to MSNBC to call Abby Martin an “out and out lunatic” for questioning the official conspiracy theory of 9/11, and for thinking that industrial fluoride put into our water supply is detrimental to our health. My god, what a nut she is!

His other little pet project has been helping out his fellow neocon Liz Wahl, and going to RT America’s headquarters and calling everyone there a Kremlin puppet. So I though a little background on Kirchick was in order.

Kirchick is first and foremost  an American propagandist. He formerly worked for Radio Free Europe. For anyone unclear, RFE is a US government-funded “media outlet” that takes it’s direction from the State Dept. and CIA. Since then Kirchick has gone on to work for Bill Kristol’s neocon think tank “Foreign Policy Initiative.” Kirchick also has the honor of being a former fellow at another neoconservative think tank called the Foundation for Defense of Democracy. FDD loves democracy so much that it appointed former Director of CIA James Woosley as chairman. And if that’s not enough, Kirchick writes for the corporate-owned Daily Beast.

James Kirchick rose to the spotlight on Wednesday August 21, 2013 when he appeared on RT to discuss the sentencing of Pvt. Manning. You’re asking why was Kirchick invited on in the first place? Well he had just penned a cute little article in the NY Daily News saying that Manning deserved the death penalty for his actions. During the interview, instead of defending this psychopathic idea, Kirchick started attacking Russia and RT in regards to the anti-gay propaganda law. Much to his chagrin he wasn’t cut off immediately, and was allowed to talk for around two minutes. Later off air he was caught saying he only went on RT to “fuck with the Russians.”

In a nutshell Kirchick is no different than those on RT that tow the Kremlins line. He lives in a warped reality where the great and free America must confront the evil oppressive Russia. This mentality is not only dangerous but idiotic. In geopolitics there are rarely good guys and bad guys. By painting the situation in Ukraine as black and white Kirchick ignores the complexities of what is going on. Boiling down the new iteration of the Cold War to good versus evil makes any action by the US seem justified no matter how reckless it may be. Kirchick believes that all US military interventions are good and all Russian ones bad. That is, of course, the same notion we hear from Russia. Furthermore James Kirchick is nothing but a hypocrite. His defense of gay rights only extends to those who don’t hurt his fake image of the “Land of the Free.”

What is happening right now in Ukraine is very serious. Listening to ideologues on either side of the conflict is dangerous. Rather than call for peace the power elite in both Russia and America call for military action. They use their minions like James Kirchick to whip people up into a war frenzy where anything goes. So don’t listen to them. For that matter don’t listen to me. Listen to yourself and your own moral values. War is wrong, ALWAYS. As Randolph Bourne eloquently stated “War is the health of the State.” And right now the State is very healthy.

Syria update: WAR WAR WAR

20130910-120043.jpg

The past several hours have seen what at first glance appear to be significant developments in averting a war with Syria. Skull and Bones war pig John Kerry jokingly stated that if Assad gave up all of his chemical weapons the United States would not launch a brutal air campaign against them. He also stated that this would never really happen because Assad is the reincarnation of Adolfo Hitler; hell bent on destroying the entire world. Well the Russians took the Bones man at his word and floated the idea to Assad. Much to the chagrin of the war pigs in the imperial capital Assad accepted this proposal, staving of the immediate threat of military intervention. A collective sigh of relief washed over many Americans when reading this news. We did it! We stopped the war! Let’s go back to obsessing over George Zimmerman and twerking. If only this were the case.

Absolutely nothing has changed. The chicken hawks in DC are still itching to go to war. Obama will still be addressing the public tonight on why we should go to war, and Kerry is pushing war harder than before. In fact the administration stated that Kerry was merely talking rhetorically when he suggested Assad give up weapons. If you watch the hearings going on right now (if you can stomach them) you will see that the war rhetoric has become more belligerent. Kerry, Hagel, and Dempsey are still urging Congress to vote for military intervention. The corporate controlled media talking heads are telling us that Assad can not be trusted to give up weapons. Human Rights Watch in the past few hours has spewed out a relentless stream of propaganda designed to sway liberals and so called progressives into supporting a war that most certainly will endanger human rights. And the Zionist warmongers and their minions are not letting up one bit. Billionaire apartheid advocate and committed Zionist Sheldon Adelson is now proclaiming that he will help Obama whip votes in Congress for war authorization. I guess he got over his pony Mitt Romney losing the 2012 election. Indeed Israel’s fervent desire to slaughter Syrians will probably be the main driving force in getting Congressional approval for legalized murder.

Please continue to voice opposition to war in Syria. The fight for humanity has not ended yet.

Re-defining war in the age of “Hope and Change”

Barak Obama-United States-Politics
War has changed under our current presidential psychopath. The Nobel Peace prize winning warmonger, Barack “kill list” Obama, has pushed through and solidified a war doctrine that would have made even the neocons of the Bush regime blush. Amidst the flurry of drum beats for the destruction of Syria, a simple and profound aspect has been left out of the discussion amongst the chattering class in Washington DC.
Is it the fact that all the intelligence evidence actually points to the foreign backed rebels/jihadists as the true perpetrators of the recent chemical weapons attack? Of course not. Who cares about the facts? Certainly not Samantha Power or the other humanitarian interventionists pushing for war. Perhaps then it’s the fact that there is near unanimity amongst the intelligence community, both active and retired, that the evidence is being fabricated or manipulated to serve the interests of the globalists? Sadly this is not the case either. Ah, it must be the  illegality of carrying out military action against a sovereign nation that poses no threat to America without UN authorization, right? Wrong again. Perhaps it is the notion that Obama thought congress should be allowed to debate war against Syria, despite the constitutional dictate that Congress be the ultimate decision maker when it ones to declaring war against a sovereign nation. Well I’m sure  you know the answer to that one as well.
What I am referring to is the fundamentally perverse doctrine that Obama has now used several times since being installed as puppet ruler of Amerika; no boots on the ground equals no act of war. Leaving aside the boots of the CIA and JSOC, that have been all over the Syrian ground, the belief in Washington that bombing a nation with the most sophisticated military hardware in the know universe is not an act of war is the most recent machination to have been thought up by the globalist deep state.  It is true that presidents have used this doctrine of military murder before to carry out strikes against nations and groups in the past. But the puppet masters of Obama have developed this to such a level that the average person no longer sees bombing another nation as an act of war. The brutal drone campaign that has spread into Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and even the Philippines constitutes an act of war in four different nations which pose no real external threat to America. Yet with robots in the sky there is no war. Obamas war in Libya marked an even more aggressive version of the “no boots no war” doctrine. Thousands of missiles and bombs fell on a largely defenseless population while the liberals in the White House proclaimed to the world that there was no war against the nation of Libya. Can one imagine if Iran decided to launch military strikes against Israel in order to help Hamas gain control of the country? There would be an unending stream of blather all over Washington and the corporate media about this illegal war of aggression against the state of Israel.
When America contemplates bombing chemical weapons facilities, which of course would result in the dispersal of the same chemicals we are trying to stop being used against innocent people, this is considered humanitarian intervention and not war. There were no Japanese boots on the ground in Pearl Harbor. Yet the air attack on Pearl Harbor still constituted an act of war. This same principle applies to the imminent bombing of Syria.  No where in Congress or in the mainstream media is this even mentioned. Instead it has become accepted that America can launch massive air strike that vaporize people and whole regions with out having to call it war. By redefining the definition of war in America the elites have made it possible for the warfare state to continue on in perpetuity.  More and more conflicts are on the horizon under this current warfare state. By re-defining the very definition of war the state grants themselves carte Blanche to carry out whatever violent and horrific act it so desires.
War does not have to mean individuals shooting at each other from fixed positions on terra firma. War can certainly be defined as a brutal air campaign involving thousands of bombs and missiles raining down from the heavens onto a sovereign country. Do not be fooled by the puppet masters who sit in the imperial capital. There is a great war starting very soon. It will begin in Syria but it will not end there. It will engulf not just the entire region but the world itself. We has human beings can not stand on the sidelines and pretend that an act of war is some form of charity. This is not intended as a call for better politicians who will follow the constitution. Clearly electing the constitutional lawyer of hope and change has only brought us misery and death. This is intended as a call for all human beings to wake up from the matrix that has been constructed to control you. Wake up and see what the people you “elect” are capable of.  It is only when we resist not just the warfare state but the state itself that we will truly be free.

James Traub is an imperialist

There was a time in my life when I used to read Foreign Policy and think that it was really cutting edge and unbiased, alas this is no longer the case.  Eventually I woke up to the fact that Foreign Policy is the mouth piece of the warmongering bipartisan foreign policy establishment in Washington.  James Traub is an excellent example of the kind of fools that Foreign Policy employs.  He is a fellow at the Center on International Cooperation which is like all the other establishment Beltway think tanks.  In his weekly column, Terms of Engagement, he attempts to show how it is now time for President Obama to really get involved in Syria.  Traub hardly hides his imperialist reasons for why Obama should start massively arming the rebels

The rebels have been forced again and again to break off battles they might otherwise win for lack of ammunition and firepower. With anti-aircraft capability, the rebels could create a safe haven on their own. With anti-tank missiles, they night quickly turn the tide in other disputed areas.

The United States has a profound interest not only in bringing the slaughter in Syria to an end, but in having a meaningful presence on the ground when that happens — as it did in Libya thanks to the NATO air campaign. It will not be easy, under any circumstances, to prevent Syria from collapsing into religious and ethnic enclaves, or into a war of all against all. But if Washington remains on the sidelines, as it has until now, it will have little influence with those who will ultimately prevail, and thus little ability to help shape the post-Assad landscape.

Obama might decide to postpone the decision until after the election, but that would be an act of consummate cynicism. He should act now, before it’s too late.
