Porkins Policy Radio episode 182 Call in show on Sudan uprising, 9/11 exploitation, Assange and more

This week I opened up the phone lines and did a call in show. We had friend of the show Jon Gold call in to discuss the recent attacks on Ilhan Omar and the continued exploitation of 9/11 trauma. Jon talked about the recent spate of politicians and media figures invoking 9/11 and the “Never Forget” mantra to score political points. Later Kai called in to talk about the political situation in Sudan. We discussed the recent coup which has removed long time leader Omar al- Bashir, and the grassroots protest movement that fomented this change. Kai and I touched on the lack of overt western interference in Sudan and speculated on what this may mean. We also touched on the politics of water and the importance of the Nile River. Kai also talked about the background role that Israel and the Gulf are playing in Sudan.

Friend of show JG Michael of Parallax Views also called in to discuss Julian Assange and the strange media fascination with the Notre Dame fire. JG and I touched on why we dislike Assange but also fear the repercussions of extraditing him and the threat to journalism that it poses. I rounded out the show by talking with listener Thor in Switzerland. We discussed the role that private finance and corporations are playing in Africa and the negative effect they can have. Thor and I also touched on the concept of micro-financing. I finish the show by answering some listener questions from good friend of the show Curtis.

Parallax Views Ep. 67: Jeffrey Epstein Update & the Cindy Yang Scandal w/ Pearse Redmond

On this edition of Parallax Views, Porkins Policy Review’s Pearse Redmond rejoins the show to discuss recent developments in the case of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein (see eps. 29 & 30) and the recent prostitution scandal that ties together New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, seedy-massage-parlor-owner-cum-MAGAhead Cindy Yang, and Donald Trump.

The conversation begins with Pearse and I discussing how the Jeffrey Epstein case has gone mainstream. We talk about the work Pearse as well as previous guest and friend of the show Ed Opperman have done on the case and how it predates the coverage coming out today. We then delve into the recent developments in the sordid saga of Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire pedophile who stands accused of being involved in a human sex trafficking ring, while also refreshing new listeners on some of the basics of this story that illustrates a case study of a one percenter’s disgusting display of power in this New Gilded Age of injustice.

In particular we hone in on the lawsuit that could lead to the unsealing of court documents in the Epstein case. Pearse and I discuss what could be at stake for three of the case’s principal actors in the case: victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre (a teenage runaway who was for Epstein at Trump’s Mar-a-lago), celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz, and British socialite (and Epstein’s procurer of young girls) Ghislaine Maxwell. Moreover we examine how Trump’s Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, ties into this case. Additionally we also delve into a recent story detailing how Epstein funded Russian model Lana Pozhideva’s “Education Advance” which claims to advocate for “Women’s Empowerment”. Pearse explains how Pozhidaeva’s denials of knowing anything about Epstein seem far-fetched and tells listeners a little bit about the MC2 Modeling Agency in relation to this story.

We then shift our attention to another scandal. Recently, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft found himself embroiled in a prostitution scandal at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. It turns out this massage parlor, which is alleged to be involved in human trafficking was formerly owned by Li Yang aka Cindy Yang. As it turns out Yang has rebranded herself since then as a MAGA supporter who has gained a great deal of access among Trump and Republicans. Pearse discusses both the seedy aspects of these spas as well as how Yang could be a security threat possibly giving access to foreign intelligence and businesses to Trump.

Parallax Views – Bonus Ep.: Roger Stone & the Circus of Doom w/ Pearse Redmond & Ed Opperman

From Parallax Views:

On this bonus episode of Parallax Views returning guests Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Reviews and private investigator Ed Opperman of The Opperman Report join us for a roundtable discussion of political “dirty trickster” Roger Stone and his recent, highly publicized arrest in relation to the Mueller Probe. But first Pearse talks about getting blocked on Twitter by sleazeball “journalist” Mike Cernovich. Then Ed and Pearse give their takes on Alan Dershowitz in relation to the ongoing sordid saga of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein (see episodes 28, 29, & 30). From there we dive straight into the weird, wild, and exceptionally sleazy world of Roger Stone. What exactly landed Roger Stone in hot water with the Mueller Probe? Is Stone, as Pearse argues early on in the discussion, or is he, as Ed believes, a formidable operator? What bombshells did former Stone collaborator Robert Morrow drop on Ed in an exclusive Opperman Report interview about the GOP dirty trickster? Did the FBI raid follow proper procedures? Will Stone receive a gag order? What of the required drug testing of Stone in the Mueller Probe indictment? Who is Randy Credico and what is his relation to Stone? What are the experiences of folks in the JFK assassination conspiracy field with Stone? And what’s going on with Wikileaks? All this and much more in this jam-packed special edition of Parallax Views!

In the first hour Abby and Robbie Martin for an end of the year special. We kick things off by talking about our overall impressions of 2018. Abby and Robbie touched on the stories and narratives that were most important during this tumultuous year. We then moved into the realm of geopolitics and some of the biggest events which took place in 2018. We talked about the war in Yemen and the continued violence against the Palestinians. We discussed the lack of media coverage on foreign affairs this year, and how Trump has ceded power to the neocon movement when it comes to geopolitics. We touched on figures like John Bolton and what may be in store for America in the coming year. Later Abby talked about the sanctions against Venezuela which led to The Empire Files being shut down. We round out the hour by talking about some of the positive things in 2018 including David Seaman having to close down his news outlet.

In the second hour JG Michael of Parallax View joins me to continue our end of the year special. We focused more on the culture war of 2018. We looked at the right-wing movement and the casualties it sustained this year. JG talks about Gavin McInnes and his recent appearance on InfoWars. We talked about the idea that many of these alt-lite figures are actually fading away. We discussed Ross Douthat’s repulsive article Why we miss the WASPs and the rehabilitation of war criminals like George HW Bush and Dick Cheney. JP and I explored what this means for America going forward. We round out the conversation by again looking at some positives like the momentum of figures like Ocasio-Cortez and others. I also brought up the strange revelation that white supremacist Jean Francois Griepy took $25,000 from Jeffrey Epstein in 2014.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 162 JG Michael on the Evolution of the Right-Wing Movement: From Moldbug to Gavin McInnes

This week J.G. Michael of Parallax Views joined me to discuss the current state of the right-wing movement. J.G. started out by talking about the intellectual roots of the far right and how that has evolved over the years. He touched on lesser known but highly influential people like Curtis Yarvin and Hans-Hermann Hoppe. J.G. also talked about the role that silicon valley and tech culture within the neoreactionary movement.

Later we discussed right-wing front man Gavin McInnes and his political gang the Proud Boys. We talked about his recent speech at the Met Club where he reenacted the murder of socialist Inejiro Asanuma by right-wing nationalist Otoya Yamaguchi. J.G. discussed how the Proud Boys fit into this complex milieu. We talked about their role as the Republican Parties brown shirts. Later we talked about punk music and some of their connections to the far right. We ended by talking about some of the real people behind these dangerous groups who are merely using McInnes and others as fronts.
