PPR Bonus Podcast ep 12 The Final Cut with Tom Secker

Tom Secker and I finish off our trilogy of episodes discussing House of Cards. This month we look at the last season The Final Cut. We discuss Francis’ long political career as it begins it’s twilight phase. Tom and I talk at length about the Cyprus story-line which introduces foreign policy to the show for the first time. We touch on FU’s complete lack of expertise in this realm and how it contributes to his ultimate demise. Tom and I also discuss whether Urquhart’s experiences as a young man in Cyprus made him into the psychopathic individual he is as Prime Minister. Later we explore the characters of Claire Carlsen and Tom Makepeace, as well as our favorite new character Jeffrey Booza-Pitt.

Tom and I also focus on the complex relationship between Francis, Elizabeth, and the security state. We talk about Elizabeth and Corder’s master plan which comes to fruition in the last episode, and how yet again the show accurately portrays the security state as the real center of power in British politics. Tom and and I also touch on two real world events that mimic House of Cards: the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, and Paul Manafort laundering money in the Bank of Cyprus. And of course Tom and return to our ongoing question: is it all about sex?

Quick Note: I apologize for the coughing and sniffling. I was still sick at the time of the recording.

PPR Bonus Podcast episode 11 To Play the King with Tom Secker

Tom and I are back for the second installment of our series on the House of Cards trilogy. This month we dissect the second series To Play the King. Tom and I look at the role of monarchy in Britain and the immense power it exerts politically. We explore how this is presented in the show, which the introduction of the newly anointed King, and his battle with Francis Urquart Tom and I talk about the fictional King and Queen’s real life counterparts Prince Charles and Princess Diana. We also discuss whether or not the monarchy should ever exercise it’s power to make political or economic change. We also take a look at how the show portrays other members of the royal family such as Quilly and the Fat Princess Charlotte.

Next Tom and I discuss the other major theme of this second series, the role of the security state. We talk about one of our favorite character Corder and his mysterious role through out the series. Tom and I talk about some of the real life events the show depicts, including the infamous assassination of three IRA members in Gibraltar in 1988 during Operation Flavius. We discuss how the security state represents the true power source of not only Urquart but of the whole of Britain. Tom and I also focus on Urquart’s use of false flag bombings and surveillance of the monarchy and virtually everyone else. We also touch on the bizarre parallels between the plot of To Play the King and the recent British elections and the wave of terrorists attacks including the London Bridge stabbing and Manchester Bombing. We also look at the strange similarity between this season and the Grenfall Tower fire.

We finish off the episode by once again asking if everything is about sex. We focus on Stamper’s possible unrequited love for FU and how this leads to his ultimate downfall.

PPR bonus podcast episode 7 How to Defeat Trolls

This month I discuss the issue of internet trolls, their irritating tactics, psychology, and my own methods for defeating them. I use a recent email I received from “Gary” as a prime example of a troll. I break down how I dealt with this situation and offer my own advice for how you can defeat the Gary’s of the internet world. I also discuss the reasons I believe people resort to this behavior, primarily focusing on the issue of loneliness and isolation.

Later I discuss whether it is ever justified to troll someone. I also talk about the times in which I myself have acted like a troll.

PPR Bonus Podcast episode 5 Under Siege 1986

For this special joint subscriber podcast Tom Secker and I discuss and dissect the 1986 TV movie Under Siege. Set in Washington DC the film revolves around a series of violent terrorists attacks carried out by a mysterious ill-defined jihadi group. The movie gives us an insiders look at how the government responds to the attacks, and attempts to solve the crime, and punish those responsible. The film depicts the FBI director up against the CIA and President who want all out war with Iran. Written well before 9/11 the movie was quite controversial at the time, and remains so today. Tom and I discuss the eerie similarities between the film and post 9/11 America. From TSA pat downs to CIA black ops, and war with Iran, Under Siege presents us with an amazingly accurate picture of where we are today as a society. Tom and I also discuss how the film manages to stand the test of time even to this day.

From Brian Heiss:

What if I told you that the most important and far-reaching story from the Trial of the Century has never been told?

In the People of the State of California v. Orenthal James Simpson there was only one item of evidence that Judge Lance Ito deemed “information that is of vital public interest”: the Mark Fuhrman Tapes.

The Fuhrman Tapes were a series of interviews that screenwriter Laura Hart McKinny conducted with LAPD Detective Mark Fuhrman over a 10 year period. McKinny was developing a fictional screenplay about women in the police department and to what extent they were successful working in areas of high crime. It was critically important for McKinny that the screenplay be as accurate and realistic as possible, to achieve this she conducted extensive interviews with multiple LAPD officers, ride-alongs and extensive research at the Los Angeles Police Academy.

For over 20 years the news media has reduced that Fuhrman Tapes to slogans: “The N-Word” and “The Race Card.” However the harsh reality is that the Fuhrman Tapes are about: Police Brutality, Racial Animosity, False Arrests, Coerced Interrogations, Police Misconduct, Racial and Economic Profiling, Planting Evidence and, the Use of the Chokehold by Law Enforcement.

Most people are unaware of this reality because unless you were in Judge Ito’s courtroom on August 29, 1995 or watching the live television broadcast of the hearing, you’ve never heard the Fuhrman Tapes. The complete presentation of the Fuhrman Tapes has never been rebroadcast on television or radio, no major newspaper or national magazine has ever published an complete, accurate, unedited transcript of the excerpts and to date audio of all of the excerpts is not available to the public on the Internet.

O.J. : VERITAS the Fuhrman Tapes is a feature length documentary (Runtime 115 minutes) which presents to the public the complete, unedited audio of the Fuhrman Tapes excerpts which have been hidden from history for over two decades. Using only archival footage O.J. : VERITAS the Fuhrman Tapes challenges the viewer to better understand the un-American manner which some Americans are treated by the justice system through a straightforward, commentary-free presentation of the facts about the Tapes and shares the opinions of both sides.

I am thrilled to provide the Porkins Policy Patreon supporters the opportunity to screen O.J. VERITAS : The Fuhrman Tapes. I believe that the last untold story of the O.J. Simpson saga, the Fuhrman Tapes, is potentially the most important and far-reaching.

I would be thrilled if you might share any feedback you might have (both positive and negative).
