This week J.G. Michael of Parallax Views joined me to discuss the current state of the right-wing movement.

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.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 159 Inside Tesla, Solar City, and Elon Musk with Artisan Loaf

Long time listener and friend Nick aka @ArtisanLoaf joins me this week. We discussed Elon Musk, his various companies, and his strange and often bad business practices. We started off by talking briefly about Musk’s privileged upbringing in South Africa. We talked about Musk’s first big start with PayPal and his business relationship with Peter Thiel. We then moved onto Tesla and the way the company has been run. We discussed the poor business model that the company has employed under the leadership of Musk. Nick talked about the major financial problems that Tesla has had since Musk took over. We also touched on the problems with Musk’s vision for electric cars and the limitations that Tesla has imposed on themselves as a company.

In the second hour we talked about Musk’s shady acquisition of Solar City. We talked about the possible use of fraud when Solar City rolled out their non-existent solar roof panels. We also touched on the conflict of interest involved in Musk acquiring Solar City, and his pattern of similar behavior over the years. Later Nick talked about the recent SEC suit against Musk. He explained the serious problems that Musk has again created for Tesla. We finished off by touching on the concept of Musk as a cut-rate Howard Hughes, and the cult like devotion to Elon Musk and his vision for humanity. Nick will be returning to the show in a few weeks to expand on these ideas.

From Spy Culture:

I welcome back Pearse Redmond to talk about the sitcom Silicon Valley, which has just finished its second season.  Unlike most of the media we discuss on ClandesTime, this show was not state-sponsored, but it is inspired by real people and real events.  We talked about the main characters and what they represent, as well as the underlying themes including transhumanism and corporate cults.

The Edward Snowden Movie

 

Our good friend Tom Secker has recently launched a brand new website called Humanarchy.  The site deals with both philosophy and politics, and like all of Tom’s work, will prove to be very interesting and worth your time.  The above video is the first open source intelligence broadcast.  It deals with the upcoming propaganda film based on Glenn Greenwald’s new book detailing his relationship with Snowden and the leaking of documents he acquired from the so-called whistle blower.  As with all of Tom’s work he presents a concise and informative piece that details what is really going on.  For the sources that Tom references and more click here.
