Porkins Policy Radio episode 89 Homeland Season 6 Finale with Tom Secker

Tom Secker joins me to wrap up our series of episodes focusing on the sixth season of Homeland. We begin by discussing our thoughts on seeing Dar Adal behind bars (I was quite upset about this). We then move onto some of the major . We discuss what the overarching goals are for the CIA. Ideas and moments in the final two episodes. Tom and I discuss the significance of the show talking about the infamous Office of Policy Coordination and its role in the attempted assassination against the President Elect. We explore why the agency would want the show to mention this. Tom and I also dissect Saul’s assertion that they are fighting back against a CIA engineered coup. Tom talk’s about how this is an oft used plot device in CIA sponsored media. The agency has long glorified the violent revolution orchestrated by themselves. Tom and I ponder if this is one of the goals of this season. We also talk about how this season of Homeland has managed to mimic our current political system better than any other show to date. We touch on the fact that Donald Trump reversed course on all his promises at the same time that the fictional Homeland president does a similar reversal. We also touch on this seasons continued use of the concept of a deep state, and the idea that the CIA are the good guys fighting against it.

In the second hour Tom and I discuss the recent admission by Alex Jones’ lawyer that he is in fact nothing more than a performance artist. We talk about how in some ways this mimics the Brett O’Keefe character on Homeland. Tom and I talk about the impact that this will have on both the alt-media and politics in general. We touch on the idea that there is a reshuffling going on within sectors of the right-wing mainstream and alternative media. I finish off the episode by talking about the recent passing of Will Grigg, his legacy, and how we can help out his family.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 65 Roger Stone: The Master Manipulator

Today I discuss the infamous GOP dirty trickster Roger Stone. I talk about his history supporting anti-establishment and third party candidates in his quest to destroy them and prop up the ruling war-party and Republican establishment. I begin by explaining his role in funding, staffing, and orchestrating Al Sharpton’s 2004 presidential run. I break down how and why Stone got involved with Sharpton. I lay out that Stone’s goal in helping the paid FBI informant was more about destroying the run of ostensible anti-war candidate Howard Dean. From personally funding Sharpton with a six figure loan, to installing his loyal cronies, Stone was able to make sure that no anti-war candidate won and that his boss George W Bush won easily. I break down how this is the general mode of operation that Stone has used through out his political career. Later I go through some of the other historical examples of Stone manipulating and derailing third party or anti-establishment (many of which were anti-war) candidates to insure a pro-war Republican victory. I talk about his role in destroying the Reform Party, labeling anti-war Republican Pete McCloskey a Socialist, and his rigging and bribery of Liberal Party leaders in New York state in order to guarantee a Reagan victory.

Later I discuss my theory that this is what Roger Stone is currently engaged in right now with Trump and Clinton. I lay out the case that Stone has been using the Trump campaign in order to ensure that Clinton and the war-party win. I talk about the notion that Clinton will stack her cabinet with many Bush era officials that Stone essentially helped in the 2000 and 2004 election. I explore the idea of looking deeper when it comes to Presidential politics and the people behind the curtain. I also talk about how Roger Stone is a man who has constantly sough to reinvent himself, now as the alt-media guru savior.

I finish off by answering some Patreon subscriber questions and rambling about a whole bunch of stuff.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 54- Robbie Martin on Neocon love-fest with Hillary Clinton

Today I spoke with Media Roots co-host (and filmmaker behind “A Very Heavy Agenda”) Robbie Martin. Robbie and I talk about the seemingly improbable rise of the Neocons and the impact they are having on the election cycle. We discuss the Neocon love-fest going on right now with Hillary Clinton, as well as their disgust with all things Trump. Later, we explore the DNC leak and throw in a few of our theories about who might have been behind it. We also consider the notion that Putin and Trump are working together. Robbie and I also discuss the sad decline of the Libertarian Party, and Gary Johnson’s embrace of neocons such as Jeb Bush. We close out with an examination of the rumors (speculations) that Bill Clinton is dying and Hillary Clinton is on drugs.

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.

The Bridge with Kira: Alt-media cults and more

Tom Secker and I had the great pleasure of joining Kira Young on her radio show The Bridge.  This time around we continued our discussion of cults by focusing on  those within the alt-media.  We took at a look at how and why cults seem to flourish within the alt-media, with a particular focus on the role that the Internet plays in reaching out to potential members.
Later we looked at the cult of personality around people such as Alex Jones, and how he is able to operate at the level he does today.  We then moved onto a well known figure in the alt-media, Stefan Molyneux, and delved deeply into the cult he has created with the Free Domain Radio community.  Tom and I discussed the fact that much of Molyneux’s cult activity is masked by his libertarian/anarchist ideology.  We zeroed in on his obsession with destroying one’s own family structure (De-Fooing) so that one can join his own digital family where he is the guru in charge.  We also discussed  whether or not Molyneux is  a psychopath.
 Later the three of us explored how many of the more extreme views in alt-media (reptilians, ancient aliens) tend to isolate people from their families and friends, which ultimately makes them vulnerable prey for cults.  I rounded off our discussion with a look at the role that cults such as the Moonies and The Church Universal Triumphant have played in crafting and co-opting the alt-media community.

Trans Resister Radio ep. 124 Scientology and other Cults

From Age of Transitions:

In this interview Pearse Redmond shares some of his research and thoughts on Scientology and cults in general. What is a destructive cult, and why would anyone join one in the first place? A better question might be: what pseudo-cults have I, myself been involved in, and to what extent? Human nature is ours, but it is also the Garden from which the guru attempts to pick Forbidden Fruit.

Why Libertarianism is the only way

Unfortunately most of the American population seems to view Libertarianism and traditional Conservatism as evil.  Rather than explore Libertarianism most Americans would rather denigrate it as a political ideology embraced by gun nuts and fringe candidates.  In the wake of Paul Ryan being chosen as Mitt Romney’s VP several news outlets published stories about how Libertarians were now suddenly going to shift over to the Romney camp.  Paul Ryan is not a Libertarian.  Just because you have read Ayn Rand and want to cut the budget does not make you a Libertarian.  In fact it is people like Paul Ryan who have given a bad name to both Libertarians and traditional Old Right Conservatives.  Well I have decided that Porkins Policy Review needs a shift.  Many people such as my self have had to hide our Libertarian leanings from our friends and family so as not to be ostracized.  Well it is time to come out of hiding and educate people on the virtues of Libertarianism.  The best place to start educating people is on the Libertarian stance on war.  So please watch the above video and read the link.  You may find out that you have a lot more in common with Libertarians than previously expected.
