Porkins Policy Radio episode 103 Helping in Palestine and Armchair Investigators

In the first hour I am joined by my good friend Lizzy to discuss her recent work in Palestine. Lizzy just returned from the town of Beit Sahour where she was teaching music to child refugees. We talk about Her experiences in actually traveling to Palestine from the US and some of the bizarre realities of this process. I also share some of my own personal experience traveling to Palestine and my trouble when leaving Israel. We then move onto the issue of Islamophobia and discuss the realities of it and how it can subconsciously manifest itself. Lizzy discusses how her three years living in Israel affected her views on Palestinians, even manifesting into irrational fears based on lies. Lizzy also talks about her co-workers in Palestine and their experiences being jailed by the Israeli military. Later the two of us talk about the racist undertones of Israeli youth, and how they have isolated themselves from the reality that is all around them. We also finish talk about why young people are not more involved in the plight of the Palestinians. We finish off by discussing Lizzy’s college’s squeamishness with her writing on her experience in Palestinian which they deemed to “political.”

In the second hour I talk about some recent “revelations” regarding the Jeffrey Epstein case and why I think we should be careful about reading too much into them. I talk about the latest armchair experts who have emerged on Twitter claiming to have all the answers and smoking guns about the case and its relationship to Trump. I place particular focus on a man called Claude Taylor who has recently garnered quite a bit of attention both in the alternative and mainstream media for his Tweets on Trump and Epstein. I talk about his credentials as a White House Staffer and other issues I have with his story. I also talk about this is the context of some of the serious problems facing the way in which the alt/conspiracy community has been investigating and covering some important stories.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 77 Homeland Season 6 with Tom Secker and Breaking News with Robbie Martin

In the first hour Tom Secker joins me to discuss the season premier of Homeland season six. We talk about the season reboot which has become a ubiquitous feature of Homeland. Tom and I begin by discussing our initial impressions of the season and where we think the show is going on a political and emotional level. Next we move onto one of the new and most interesting characters in the show, President-elect Elizabeth Keane, the junior Senator from New York. We talk about how this character is not a character of Hillary Clinton as we and any others predicted, but instead a much more complex character which in many ways is closer to Donald Trump. We discuss the ideas and politics that the CIA is putting forth in this new season. Tom and I talk about how the notion of the CIA plotting against the president-elect is not only a major story line in Homeland but also in real life vis-a-vis Trump and the CIA. The two of us also talk about the idea that this season of Homeland will retell and reinvent the story of Al Qaeda. We explore the possibility that this is the overarching story the CIA wants to put out the the public, and that a new form or wave of jihadi attacks may be in-store for the West.

In the second hour frequent guest Robbie Martin joins us to discuss some of the latest political and geopolitical events. We begin by exploring the childish discourse from both Trump and the media over the past several weeks. Next we talk about our opinions of the recent “intelligence report” claiming that Trump is a Russian Manchurian candidate. We talk about our thoughts on the possibility of violence erupting between Israel and Palestine. Robbie and I focus on some of the strange stories coming about of Israel including: Israeli jets bombing Damascus, and US officials warning Israel not to share intelligence with Trump. The Two of us discuss our feelings on increased rhetoric of the all powerful Russian state against our quaint democratic life in the US. Robbie and I touch on the recent commutation of Chelsea Manning and the possibility that Julian Assange will stand trial in America. We also talk about Glenn Greenwald’s recent use of the term Deep State. Robbie and I round out the conversation by discussing some of our fears overs Trump’s domestic policies.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 75 My 2017 Predictions with Chuck Ochelli

On today’s episode I lay out my predictions for 2017. In the first hour I look at geopolitics and the places I think will be important in 2017. I begin by focusing on a possible resolution in Syria and how this may play out for the future. I also talk about a few other hot-spots in the middle east to pay attention to: Israel and Yemen. I discuss why these are both important for the future of the region and on a global scale. I also explore Asia, focusing on China and North Korea. I discuss how president Trump may handle these countries and how geopolitics and foreign policy will change under his administration. I also touch on the idea that the CIA will become even more bold and out of control under Trump.

In the second hour Chuck Ochelli (and Frankie) joins me for more 2017 predictions. We talk about where the alt-media is headed. Whether or not Wikileaks is actually going to release some bombshells this year. If Trump really knows any secrets about cyber security. The future of marijuana legalization and the drug war. Will comedy get better? And the possibility of Ivanka as First Lady.

ClandesTime 027 Wrong is Right

Aaron Franz and I joined Tom Secker for a roundtable discussion on the  film Wrong is Right; a 1982 political conspiracy thriller/black comedy.  This is without a doubt one of the most bizarre movies I have ever watched.  We discuss the obvious intelligence/military connections, as well as the prophetic memes and terrifyingly accurate predictive programing.  We also break down the meaning and message behind the film.  This was an extremely fun conversation but I would suggest that you watch Wrong is Right first.

Breaking the Silence Silenced by RNC convention

The indispensable Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence has released a new report on children and youth in the Occupied West Bank.  Complete with video testimonies the new report paints a disturbing picture of the daily violence that the IDF inflicts on Palestinian children.  Now normally the American media would try their best to ignore this sort of report.  They may even try their best to some how portray this as yet another viscous anti-Semitic attack.  Lucky for the media the Republican National Convention will be eating up most of their time and energy.  So before you get all worked up over the RNC and DNC conventions take the time and read through the report.  If you cant read the whole report here are articles in The Independent, The Guardian and Ynet, all of which deal with the recent report.  When your watching the balloons falling from the convention arena ceiling, you may want to take a minute and think about how your tax dollars go to funding this decades long occupation.
