The Ochelli Effect – Historiography

From Ochelli.com

What will historians eventually decide about the assassination of JFK? Michael Swanson discusses this with Chuck and both partake in educated speculation on the matter.

What does the old rule of perspective have to do with modern conventions?

Mike is writing a book about the Vietnam War and keeps learning new things.

Is the distance of generations required to judge history? How will The JFK Research community be viewed in context?

Will future generations have no desire to care about the Kennedy assassination? Does anyone even remotely think World War One is as important as it actually is?

How did the Romans handle history? How bad are standard textbooks?

Pearse Redmond joins in the second hour.

The latest pointless debates over the SCOTUS nominee are discussed.

The War of Terror is still a thing. One wonders if historians will be able to untangle the mess of the alleged War already in progress.

Why is Iran the re-visited fabled enemy of the day?

Porkins Policy Radio episode 151 Trump-Putin Summit and Super Villain Elon Musk

In the first hour JP Sottile joins me to break down the recent Trump-Putin Summit in Helsinki. We start off with Trump’s recent reversal on comments he made stating that Russia didn’t interfere with the election. JP and I then get into the press conference itself and pick apart some of the major takeaways. JP talks about Bill Browder and Putin’s allegations about him and Hillary Clinton. We also talk about the strange “dry mouth” that Trump appeared to have during the presser and explore Trump’s possible health problems. I also ask JP about his strange comments regarding Israel. JP offers up his own analysis of this, diving into the geopolitics of Syria and Russia. We finish off by talking about the possibility that the US is seriously planning regime change in Iran. JP and I focus on the recent actions of the MEK, the bogus bomb plot in Paris, and Russia’s desire to ensure that Iran is not an energy powerhouse in the region.

In the second hour Aaron Franz joins me to discuss Elon Musk’s latest PR disaster. We talk about his insane tweets accusing diver Vern Unsworth of being a pedo, and his disastrous attempt to save the Thai soccer team with a mini-submarine. Aaron and I explore Musk’s cult of personality and his savior complex. We discuss the concept that Musk is both a modern day super hero and villain. Aaron talks about the hyperreailty of Musk and the Marvel Universe as well. We finish off the conversation touching on insane billionaire in general and the strange place they hold in our society.

Professor Isa Blumi joins me for part 2 of our series on Yemen. We pick up in the late 90’s after Ali Abdullah Saleh has come to power in a unified Yemen. Isa discusses Saleh’s strategy of sowing chaos all over the country in order to maintain absolute power. Isa talks about Saleh’s use of extreme violence, and his reliance on US power. We then explore how the so called Arab Spring played out in Yemen. We discuss the orchestrated nature of the movement, and how is sought to control the very real desires of the Yemeni public. Isa touches on people like Tawakkol Karman and her role as a US proxy during the Arab Spring. Isa brings us all the way to Saleh’s assassination and the current state of Yemen.

Later we talk about the role that Al Qaeda plays on Yemen as a bogey man. We discuss how the US used Yemen as playground for their eventual global drone program. We address the fight going on between Saudi Arabia and the UAE in Yemen. Isa also explains the political history of Ansar Allah (Houthis) and how they are not an Iranian proxy force.

Isa talks about North Yemen’s role as a progressive nation that supported everyone from the George Habash to Che Guevara. We also discuss South Yemen’s Marxist history as well. Isa also talks about the deliberately obscured fact that Yemen is rich in oil, gas, and other natural resources. Isa describes how work and regional powers have long sough to subjugate and control Yemen’s immense wealth through economic and conventional warfare.

Porkins Great Game episode 11 Gladio B Heats Up In Syria

On this episode Christoph and I start off with our favorite Georgian politician, Mikheil Saakashvili, and his most recent meddling in his native country.  While ostensibly operating as governor of Odessa, Saakashvili was recently caught on tape advising the owner and director of popular TV station Rustavi 2 on how to instigate a violent confrontation with the goverment.  The pro-Saakashvili channel has been in a long legal dispute and the current regime has trued multiple times to shut it down.  Christoph explains what is at stake for Rustavi 2 and how Saakashvili has been inserting himself into the situation.  We discuss his plans to start a “revolution” by orchestrating a violent government showdown.  We also talk about Georgia’s recent descion to buy natural gas from Russia and Iran.  Christoph breaks down the reasons for this and address’ the persistan claims that the Georgian Dream Coalition is “pro-Russian.”

Next we move to Syria and the startling rumors of Chinese involvement in the war.  We discuss a series of reports about Chinese naval vessels and military advisers arriving in Syria.  Next we talk about the growing Uighur presence in places such as Jisr al Shughour and Deir ez-Zour.  We break down the increasing role of the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) with in the jihadi movement, but also their role in bringing hundreds of Uighur’s to Syria.  We explore how all of this has forced China’s hand to a degree when in comes to fighting international terrorism.

For our third section Christoph and I explore the recent shooting down of a Russian jet by the Turkish military.  We breakdown the reality of what actually happened, and provide a detailed analysis as to why Turkey carried out this action.  We talk about Russia’s recent targeting of Turkish backed Turkem fighters, and how this one was one of the major factors for Turkey downing the fighter jet.  Christoph explains how this was probably a joint US-Turkey operation separate from the NATO power structure.  Christoph also tells us about the leader of the Turkem fighters and his true identity as a Turkish national and son of a Turkish mayor.  As we round out the section we explore the ISIS oil smuggling routes that have also been bombed by Russia.  We talk about how much of this lucrative trade is being overseen and brokered Bilal Erdogan, son of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  Christoph also gives his predictions as to the sorts of steps Russia will be taking in the near future.

For our weird terrorism section we discuss South Korea’s claims that ISIS and North Korea are in league with one another.  As if that isn’t weird enough, we also touch on China’s claim that the Dailai Lama supports ISIS.

Christoph and I also briefly discuss a new media project that Sibel Edmonds is starting that both of us will be a part of.

Porkins Policy Review episode 16 The imperial conquest of Libya with Eric Draitser

On this week’s episode we talk with Eric Draitser of Stopimperialism.com.  We discuss the current reality of Libya as it stands three years after the NATO-led war which destroyed what was once the richest and most prosperous nation in Africa.  Eric and I break apart his recent article entitled “The Secret War in Libya”, which delves into the various developments beginning to take form in the south of the country between the Green Resistance and black Libyan tribes.  Rounding out the conversation is a discussion on the role of AFRICOM and its role in helping to destabilize and colonize Africa.  This is a jam packed podcast with a lot of very important information for anyone concerned about the West’s imperial agenda.
