Porkins Policy Radio episode 128 Tom Secker on SEEX and A Tribute to Robert Parry

Good friend Tom Secker joins me today in the first hour for an in-depth discussion of the Science and Entertainment Exchange (SEEX). Tom explains what this little know pseudo-govenment NGO is, and how they have been quietly assisting over 1,300 Hollywood films. We talk about their connection to the National Academy of Sciences and their connection to the state. Tom then discusses their stated aim: to assist Hollywood in depicting accurate science, and the promotion of science and scientists. Tom and I then explore how this is not quite an accurate assessment of their work. We talk about the huge influence that they have on Hollywood productions, including changing aspects of the script and promoting was amounts to science fiction. Tom discusses SEEX’s involvement in Thor, how they made Natalie Portman’s character an astrophysicist and then created a whole add campaign designed around her. We also discuss SEEX’s strange idealized Hollywood depiction of scientists as rich and beautiful. Tom talks about how SEEX seems to have drank the Hollywood kool-aid. We talk about how Science and Entertainment Exchange promotes “cool” scientists over actual science. Later we discuss SEEX’s close relationship with both the Pentagon and the CIA. Tom and I lay out the theory that the Pentagon is simply using SEEX as a front to push a technocratic transhumanist agenda. We finish off the hour talking about why more attention should be paid to SEEX and the work they are doing.

In the second hour I talk about the untimely deaths of musician Mark E. Smith and author Ursala K. Le Guin. I then move onto the passing of investigative journalist Robert Parry. I talk about the tremendous work that Parry did on Iran-Contra and the 1980 October Surprise. I discuss why the loss of Parry is so significant given the sad state of journalism today. I also touch on Prop Or Not’s nasty attack on Parry. I end the show talking about Trump’s upcoming State of the Union and what we should keep an eye out for in his speech.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 122 The economy, Bitcoin, AI, and Christmas with JP Sottile and Aaron Franz

Friend of the show JP Sottile joins me in the first hour for an in-depth discussion about the recently passed tax reform bill in the House. We talk about what this reform package is promising and what the possible outcomes may actually be. JP discusses how this will ultimately benefit the richest of the rich in America, while most likely punishing the rest of the nation. We analysis the GOP’s strategy with pushing this wildly unpopular bill. JP and I discuss the idea that this may be part of a longer term strategy of ousting Trump from power. JP touches on Bannon’s attempts to tax the rich more and how this was rebuffed by the Republican establishment. Later we talk about how this may result in the GOP being out of power for some time. We then move onto a discussion of Bitcoin and how this has become the story that everyone is talking about. JP and I link this in with the tax reform bill and the financialization of the world economy. We talk about the idea of Bitcoin being a bubble and the logical result of our highly financialized world. JP and I also touch on the creepy transhumanist aspects of Bitcoin. We talk about the transhumanists behind Bitcoin, and how the embrace of it maybe a prelude to more transhumanists transitions. We end by briefly talking about Trump’s bizarre water drinking habits, and the rumor this is related to possible drug use.

I start off the second hour by talking about my show being reported in major news outlets including the Palm Beach Post and Daily Mail. I discuss how the mainstream media reported on my interview with F Lee Bailey and Pat McKenna, and some of the positives and negatives. Later good friend Aaron Franz joins us to discuss some of the strange occult aspects of Christmas. Aaron talks about the winter solstice’s connection to Jesus and the story of Christmas. Aaron and I also touches on the occult nature of buying a Christmas tree itself. We talk about strange ancient Greek castration practices under evergreen trees. We talk about the life and death ritual of buying a Christmas tree. We then move onto the most recent news stories about AI, focusing mostly on Sophia, Ben Goertzel, and SingularityNET. Aaron talks about Goertzel’s role within SingularityNET and his promotion of the BlockChain. We also talk about the strange rise in acceptance of sex robots and how this could be a pernicious development for society as a whole.
