Parallax Views – Bonus Ep.: Roger Stone & the Circus of Doom w/ Pearse Redmond & Ed Opperman

From Parallax Views:

On this bonus episode of Parallax Views returning guests Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Reviews and private investigator Ed Opperman of The Opperman Report join us for a roundtable discussion of political “dirty trickster” Roger Stone and his recent, highly publicized arrest in relation to the Mueller Probe. But first Pearse talks about getting blocked on Twitter by sleazeball “journalist” Mike Cernovich. Then Ed and Pearse give their takes on Alan Dershowitz in relation to the ongoing sordid saga of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein (see episodes 28, 29, & 30). From there we dive straight into the weird, wild, and exceptionally sleazy world of Roger Stone. What exactly landed Roger Stone in hot water with the Mueller Probe? Is Stone, as Pearse argues early on in the discussion, or is he, as Ed believes, a formidable operator? What bombshells did former Stone collaborator Robert Morrow drop on Ed in an exclusive Opperman Report interview about the GOP dirty trickster? Did the FBI raid follow proper procedures? Will Stone receive a gag order? What of the required drug testing of Stone in the Mueller Probe indictment? Who is Randy Credico and what is his relation to Stone? What are the experiences of folks in the JFK assassination conspiracy field with Stone? And what’s going on with Wikileaks? All this and much more in this jam-packed special edition of Parallax Views!

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.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 9 Good Night and Good Luck

We welcome Ed Opperman to the series and discuss the 2005 docudrama Good Night, and Good Luck which retells the story of the 1954 confrontation between senator Joe McCarthy and television journalist Ed Murrow of CBS. McCarthy was pursuing Communists within the State Department and other government agencies and innocent people were getting caught in the crossfire, creating a climate of suspicion, mistrust and hostility. Murrow used his prime time series See It Now to attack McCarthy and the culture and mentality of McCarthyism, showing the senator to be a hypocrite who persecuted his targets.

This is the story that is told in Good Night, and Good Luck, a film born out of the creative relationship between George Clooney and Grant Heslov. In this episode we take a sideways look at the historical events and ask why Clooney and Heslov chose to lionise not just Murrow but the whole See it Now/CBS crew. We try to persuade Ed of an alternative interpretation of events, with Murrow not quite being the heroic counter-establishment figure he is in the film and CBS being a rotten media organisation with deep ties to the CIA. We then explore how almost everyone involved in Good Night, and Good Luck had either already made a film with CIA assistance, or went on to do so. We round off talking about Clooney’s bizarre Las Vegas connection, E Michael Burke, George Steinbrenner and (inevitably) Donald Trump.
