Porkins Policy Radio PPR episode 120 Decline of the US Empire with JP Sottile and Death of Saleh in Yemen

JP Sottile of NewsVandal.com joins me in the first hour to discuss the decline of the US empire. We begin by discussing the continued decline of the US media. JP and I touch on the the ways in which the US media (particularly TV) has become ever more enamored with the cult of celebrity. We discuss the ways in which the TV talking heads will obsess over a single tweet by Trump while actual real news is happening all around us. JP and I speculate over the reasons for this trend, and why the media loves to distract us with “news items” about presidential tweets. We also touch on the lighting speed with which the news cycle now runs at. Later JP and I talk about the decline of US dominance globally and how this may explain why we are seeing so many violent conflicts erupting across the globe. JP focuses on the numerous crises in the Middle East, and how they are being exploited in order to stave of the eventual death of both the US and Saudi Arabia.

I begin the second hour by briefly touching on the arrest and escape of former Georgian President JP Saakashvili. I then turn my attention to the recent murder of former president of Yemen Ali Abduallah Saleh. I give a brief look at the recent history of modern Yemen and how it has continually been used by regional and world powers. I also talk about the Arab Spring which ousted Saleh and his return to power in 2015 with the Houthi movement. I then explore the Houthi’s and attempt to explain some of the complexities surrounding their political movement. The issue of Iranian support for them is also explored. I finish off by discussing my displeasure with some of the political rhetoric from left which appears to be supporting war against Saudi Arabia. I talk about the problems with choosing sides in any war and Yemen in particular. I also talk about how this still fits into the US/Saudi narrative of their being a “good” and “bad” side in this war.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 117 Breivik Netflix Movie and Saudi Purge

Tom Secker joins me in the first hour to discuss the upcoming Netflix movie about Anders Behring Breivik and the Oslo and Utoya Island attacks. Tom and I talk about why the film is being made now and the state funding it is receiving from the Norwegian government. We then talk about the writer and director of this film Paul Greengrass. Tom explains his career as a government propagandist and focuses on his film United 93. We then talk about the aspects of the attack we anticipate Greengrass and Netflix will leave out of the film. We discuss Breivik’s politics and how they have become adopted by much of the alt and far right in recent times. Tom discusses the notion that the attack may have been intended as a message to far right groups to further embrace this political ideology. We also touch on the idea that this was a Gladio style event, and whether or not Brevik was working for others. Later Tom and I talk about former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and his current job as Secretary General of NATO. We discuss NATO’s role as it exists today and the power it has. Tom and I finish off by discussing our final episode in our review of House of Cards. I also update the listeners about the return of Porkins Great Game.

In the second hour I rant about the recent political purge in Saudi Arabia and the larger implications of it. I talk about Mohammad bin Salman’s alleged corruption and liberalization campaigns, and how he is using this as a smoke screen for his larger political ambitions. I discuss my thoughts on the forced resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri by the Saudi’s. I talk about how Hariri and Lebanon are being used as a proxy battleground between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Yemen and the famine is also discussed. I finish off by laying out my theory that this is the foreign policy nightmare we can expect from Donald Trump. I also mention the rumors that Trump was bribed directly by Mohammad bin Salman, and how this might explain the recent developments across the middle east.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 115 Paranormal Halloween Special with Aaron Franz

Aaron Franz joins us for a special paranormal/occult Halloween special. We start off by discussing our opinions on Halloween as it exists today. We then move onto the ancient Druid and pagan roots of the holiday and the deeper esoteric meaning behind it. Aaron and I discuss how this pagan festival was absorbed into the Christian All Hallows Eve and All Saints Day. We look at how Halloween has become a commercialized holiday predicated on buying candy and other useless products. Aaron and I then move onto how Halloween, holidays, and religion have been changing with the current times. We pay particular attention to the rise of transhumanism and how this may or may not affect religion. Aaron and I discuss the idea of the Catholic Church embracing transhumanism and the AI godhead. We also talk about Saudi Arabia granting “citizenship” to the AI machine Sophia, and Anthony Levandowski’s AI church.

In the second hour Aaron and I dive right into the paranormal and discuss our views on UFO’s and aliens. We touch on why these topics are taboo to many in the conspiracy culture, and the importance of studying and understanding this movement. Aaron and I then move onto ghosts and the spirit world. Aaron also talks about All Souls College in Oxford and its bizarre background and connection to groups such as the Round Table Movement. We finish off by discussing the life and legacy of Manly P Hall. Aaron and I talk about the possibility of Hall being murdered by his caretaker, and the legal battle that ensued afterwards. We also talk about Hall and his wife living in the Ennis House in LA. We finish off by talking about the need for people to embrace the teachings of Manly P Hall, especially in this crazy consumerist world we live in.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 86 Homeland Predicted the Deep State and Alex Jones with Tom Secker

Tom Secker returns for the second installment of our discussion on the sixth season of Homeland. We begin with a quick recap of the past several episodes before diving into the big themes going on this season. Tom and I begin by focusing on the character of Dar Adal and the notion that he represents a faction of the now infamous deep state. We talk about the mysterious private intelligence firm that Adal is using for assassinations, false flag bombings, and information operations. Tom and I discuss what exactly the CIA is getting out of having their favorite TV portray such a nefarious and shadowy organization at the center of the season plot-line. We also touch on the fact that the CIA is virtually nonexistent in this season and what that may mean. The two of us talk about the fact that Homeland has successfully made this whole season revolve around the meme of “fake news” and big data as a powerful tool for manipulation. We talk about the fact that these ideas were woven into the script months before they became talking points for the general public. Tom talks about the power of the fake news meme as a tool of the CIA and National Security State. We also explore the character of Brett O’Keefe who is the greatest characterization of Alex Jones ever. Tom and I talk about O’Keefe’s role as a deep state contractor for Dar Adal, and his efforts to create sock puppet accounts to influence public opinion.

In the second hour Tom ask the question if the CIA is telling us that Alex Jones is in fact an agency asset through Homeland. We explore the various interpretations of the O’Keefe – Jones character and what the CIA may be trying to tell us about the alt-media and conspiracy culture in general. Tom also tells us about his articles in The American Journal of Economics and Sociology. I finish off the show by discussing the increasingly dire situation in Yemen and why no one is talking about it.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 46 The Truth About Syria with Eva Bartlett

For this episode we are joined by activist and freelance journalist Eva Bartlett for an in-depth discussion of the  war in Syria.  Fresh from her fourth trip to the embattled nation, Eva lends us her perspective of what it’s actually like on the ground.  Eva recounts the many places she has visited, and the current living conditions of the Syrian people.  Eva and I discuss the numerous terrorist groups and gangs operating  within Syria, and the disappearance of groups such as the FSA and other “moderate rebel” groups.  Eva also offers us an alternative narrative about the Maddaya starvation story that gripped  news headlines and then vanished.  We discuss the propaganda involved in this story and its similarity to the skewed reporting of the terrorist siege of Yarmouk.

We also touch on the recent doxxing of a UN press official by hipster-propagandist Molly Crabapple, and her laughable claims that the UN is secretly working with the Assad government.  Eva talks about the dire situation  in the villages of Foua and Kafarya, two areas completely ignored by the United Nations.  Later we briefly touch  on the role that Israel is playing in the Golan Heights, and in aiding some of the terrorist fighting in Syria.  We round off our conversation by talking about the Grand Muffti, Dr. Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun, and the positive role he is playing in Syria.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 43 Homeland Season 5 ep 9

On this episode of our Homeland series Tom and I spent the first half of the episode dissecting the falsehoods that this particular episode as put forth in terms of the legality of spying.  Suddenly aware of the rule of law and constitutional rights we see all the major characters in this episode pushing this agenda of doing everything by the book.  Tom and I discuss how this is an obvious ploy to reassure the watchers that the CIA and other foreign intelligence agencies are now longer breaking the law when they spy on you.  While all the characters are trying to gather legal evidence of Alison’s Russian mole status, Tom and I break down how the CIA would never go through the trouble of getting this sort of information let alone entertain the idea of going to a federal trial.  We also touch on the series attempts to demonize the character of Alison; this time using her own sexuality as negative characteristic.

Later we move onto a topic that both Homeland and ourselves have mentioned time and time again: the gas attack in Ghouta, Syria.  We discuss how Homeland has continually used the Ghouta massacre as a plot device and the meaning behind it.  We talk about how the show is now advancing the narrative that not only is Assad using chemical weapons but also ISIS and other terrorist organizations.  We break down how Homeland is trying to convince us that everyone in Syria is a “bad guy” and thus drastic action in Syria must be carried out.  Tom and I also talk about the difficulty in actually producing and delivering Sarin, and talk about the Aum Shinrikyo attack in Tokyo as an example of a Sarin attack by a non-state actor.  We talk about how this theme may be one of the overarching narratives that Homeland is pushing.  Tom and I also talk about how Homeland’s ISIS cell wants UN recognition and the ridiculousness of it.  We also talk about how the Islamic State already exists and has UN recognition in the form of Saudi Arabia.    We round out the conversation by touching on our recent podcast with the Homeland Hackers and provide some more thoughts on why we believe they are in fact genuine.

The panel heatedly debunks more than one widespread spin used by mainstream and pseudo-alternative media outlets in reporting Saudi Arabia’s assault on Yemen with the carefully-designed Iran element. And finally, the panel invites BFP activist community members to join and expand this discussion and provide their ideas for coming roundtable discussion topics.

Porkins on FLNWO #16 Charlie Wilson’s War

CorbettReport_

I recently had the great pleasure of joining the one and only James Corbett again.  This time around James invited me for his podcast series Film, Literature, and the New World Order for a discussion of the film Charlie Wilson’s War.

From Corbett Report:

“How and why did the Afghan-Soviet war start? What was the CIA’s involvement in the affair? Who did they support and what were they aiming at? If you’re interested in the answers to these questions you won’t find them in 2007′s Hollywood drama, Charlie Wilson’s War, but you will hear them discussed on this podcast. Join us today for another edition of Film, Literature and the New World Order as Pearse Redmond of Porkin’s Policy Review  joins us to dissect the propaganda and predictive programming of this CIA-Afghan cover up movie.”
