Parallax Views Ep. 67: Jeffrey Epstein Update & the Cindy Yang Scandal w/ Pearse Redmond

On this edition of Parallax Views, Porkins Policy Review’s Pearse Redmond rejoins the show to discuss recent developments in the case of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein (see eps. 29 & 30) and the recent prostitution scandal that ties together New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, seedy-massage-parlor-owner-cum-MAGAhead Cindy Yang, and Donald Trump.

The conversation begins with Pearse and I discussing how the Jeffrey Epstein case has gone mainstream. We talk about the work Pearse as well as previous guest and friend of the show Ed Opperman have done on the case and how it predates the coverage coming out today. We then delve into the recent developments in the sordid saga of Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire pedophile who stands accused of being involved in a human sex trafficking ring, while also refreshing new listeners on some of the basics of this story that illustrates a case study of a one percenter’s disgusting display of power in this New Gilded Age of injustice.

In particular we hone in on the lawsuit that could lead to the unsealing of court documents in the Epstein case. Pearse and I discuss what could be at stake for three of the case’s principal actors in the case: victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre (a teenage runaway who was for Epstein at Trump’s Mar-a-lago), celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz, and British socialite (and Epstein’s procurer of young girls) Ghislaine Maxwell. Moreover we examine how Trump’s Labor Secretary, Alexander Acosta, ties into this case. Additionally we also delve into a recent story detailing how Epstein funded Russian model Lana Pozhideva’s “Education Advance” which claims to advocate for “Women’s Empowerment”. Pearse explains how Pozhidaeva’s denials of knowing anything about Epstein seem far-fetched and tells listeners a little bit about the MC2 Modeling Agency in relation to this story.

We then shift our attention to another scandal. Recently, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft found himself embroiled in a prostitution scandal at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa. It turns out this massage parlor, which is alleged to be involved in human trafficking was formerly owned by Li Yang aka Cindy Yang. As it turns out Yang has rebranded herself since then as a MAGA supporter who has gained a great deal of access among Trump and Republicans. Pearse discusses both the seedy aspects of these spas as well as how Yang could be a security threat possibly giving access to foreign intelligence and businesses to Trump.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 176 Ricardo Vaz on Venezuela and the Naked Imperialism of the US

Ricardo Vaz of Venezuelanalysis.com joined me to discuss the ongoing regime change operations in Venezuela. We stared off by discussing the recent return of so called “interim president” Juan Guaido after his visit to several Latin American including Colombia and Brazil. Ricardo talked about the muted response from Maduro, who allowed Guaido to return with out a fuss after being banned from international travel. Ricardo also talked about the response on the ground in Venezuela to Guaido’s return, and the fact that he appears to be losing some momentum as a political leader. We also talked about Guaido’s recent travel where he was allegedly scolded by US Vice President Mike Pence in Venezuela. Ricardo and I also broke down some of the wild statistics that figures like Guaido and John Bolton have been bandying about. We focused on the claims of 600 army defections and 20,000 Cuban intelligence operatives working inside Venezuela. We also touched on the devastating impact of the sanctions on medicine like insulin and the bridge-aid standoff . We fished off the conversation by discussing some of the other opposition figures including Leopoldo Lopez, Julio Borges, and Juan Requesens.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 174 Matthew Alford on Union Jackboot

Writer, comedian, and University of Bath teaching fellow, Matthew Alford joined me to discuss his latest book Union Union Jackboot: What Your Media and Professors Don’t Tell You About British Foreign Policy, which we co-authored with TJ Coles. We started off the conversation by discussing the unique structure of the book. Matt and I talked about the perception of British foreign policy we see today in the media. We touch on the brutal legacy the British Empire has had around the world, and take shots at some of the UK’s sacred cows like Winston Churchill. We also discussed why the media, Conservatives, and many in Labour despises Jeremy Corbyn. We talked about the way that Corbyn is perceived, many times incorrectly. Matt also talks about Brexit and why we should never feel sorry for Theresa May. Later we talked about the destructive role British foreign policy plays in seemly mundane affairs like clothing industry. We also touched on Britain’s role more recently in Sri Lanka and Nigeria.

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!

The Ochelli Effect – Deep State Orange Onion

From OchelliEffect.com

On this special Tuesday Broadcast Pearse Redmond and JP Sottile joined Chuck to do the pre-game show and Live coverage of The State of The Union Address. Both hours are far less painful than the realization that this is a serious look at the alleged leader of the “Free” world.

LBJ may have moved the SOTU to primetime, but Trump just moves your stomach contents closer to your toilet dominating all-time in the fake not-so-much-news cycle 50 years later. Is it now really this complicated? Don’t sit yet.
Deep State Orange Onion

Cliff Notes

Note The designated survivor is Rick Perry. (Not kidding) The advertised one-hour speech ran about 20 minutes over. After attempting to listen to the speech again right after the show, Chuck reports a headache. Support for 45 grew according to instant polling, thus the death of American genius is confirmed.

After noting many guests following a script that would almost sound like a kinder more gentile Trump. Somebody apparently loaded Trump’s speech with every clichéd vapid Neo-Con wet dream of Americana known to the Federalist Society, The Koch Brothers, and beyond.

In the call and answer game with his audience Russian Agent, Orage continued with the following sets of shallow emotional appeals tailored for his supports and the other clapping monkey puppets in Congress.
The Wall, Angel Families, The show of brown faces he is claiming as helped with criminal justice reform and the ask from another reality TV star, The Moon Landing, Random hero-worship for soldiers, He wants others to abandon the politics of revenge, half-hearted celebration of women, AIDS, Cancer, Right wing filler, Anti-abortion, Military bragging, The New Nuclear arms race, pat on the back for nothing actually getting done regarding North Korea, Interference in Venezuala justifications, Attacking socialism, “We Are Born Free”, U-S-A U-S-A U-S-A chants, servitude to Israeli paradigm, Pandering more to troop worshipers, “Great Nations do not fight endless wars”,USS Cole insert, “It is a radical regime, They do bad bad things(Refering to Iran as the leading state-sponsor of terrorism),After again stating that defending the Jewish people is a high priority survivors of the tree of Life massacxre get topped with one guy who survived that Nazi wasve as well, a quick happy birthday chorus for him, Trump describes American rescue from a German train the man “remebers” allegedly, “The American soldiers were proof god exists”, “We must keep America great in ourr hearts and many other empty platitudes in an effort to continue the sleeping whiplash of unknown cryptography that is American political theater in 2019.

El Paso Texas is the example Trump cited to justify The Wall but it sounds fishy. (Ochelli had been to this city when it was dangerous. The idea that it was foreign-born criminals who made it that way holds no water from Chuck’s observations.) What else did the Drumpf make up? He actually made reference to The Pledge of Allegiance and His alleged god several Times. Are you tired of this yet? The WWE Hall of Famer delivered the greatest hits every ill-informed MAGA troll eats for breakfast but was it balanced?
Deep State Orange Onion

Nancy seems to be a master of body language. The women in white stole his thunder for a few moments. Find the kindergarten clap in the footage. Trump breathes heavily at the microphone.

Abrams response: Personal story lead describes the circumstances of her family and an act of kindness by her father. “I love our country”. Insert her acts of kindness for federal workers recently suffering under the Government shut-down. Overall, more of a yawnfest than one imagined in Chuck’s opinion. Red Meat for progressives though.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 171 Ryan Carey on Nick Drnaso’s Sabrina

Ryan Carey joins me this week for an in-depth discussion of Nick Drnaso’s latest comic Sabrina. We started off the conversation on a totally unrelated matter and discussed the recent reporting on former CIA operative turned Batman writer, Tom King. We then shifted back Sabrina and the way it captures the bleak reality that so many of us find ourselves enmeshed in. Ryan and I discuss the books plot which revolves around the murder of a young woman named Sabrina, how two friends Teddy and Calvin deal with it, and the role that conspiracy theory plays throughout. We discussed the themes of isolation and intimacy within the conspiracy culture portrayed by Drnaso. Ryan and I also talked about how the book breaks so many literary norms including the concept of “Chekhov’s gun.” We explored the two male characters Teddy and Calvin, breaking down how both of them are essentially unlikable man children wallowing in their own self loathing. We finished off the conversation by looking at some of the broader issues raised in the book. Ryan also talked about the increased popularity of independent comics that encapsulate the bleak reality in the age of Trump.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 170 JP Sottile and Robbie Martin on 2020 Dems, Trumps future, and neocon Tulsi Gabbard

JP Sottile joined me in the first hour to discuss the current political climate and the soon approaching 2020 Presidential election. We talked about the possibility of Trump not running in 2020 and the potential Republicans that might take his place. JP floated the idea of both John Kasich and Nikki Haley running. Later we talked about the seemingly endless list of Democrats lining up to take the nomination. JP and I touch on Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Mitch Landrieu, John Hickenlooper, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Joe Biden. We discussed the multitude of political problems with these potential candidates, and the shift within the Democratic party. JP also touched on the rise of figures like Ocasio Cortez who may represent the first real step towards true democratic-socialism. We also discussed what the true role of William Barr will be while acting Attorney General and the decline of the Trump wing of the GOP.

In the second hour Robbie Martin joined me to break down one 2020 presidential hopeful, Tulsi Gabbard. Robbie explained how Gabbard is wrongly being trotted out as the anti-war/ anti-interventionist candidate in 2020. Robbie talked about Gabbard’s support of torture and her neoconservative views on terrorism and the War on Terror. We touched on her anti-Muslim Hindu nationalist rhetoric and how that contributes to her hawkish views. Robbie and I also talked about the response from the left which has been to praise Gabbard as some sort of peace loving dove who will stop all the foreign wars. We also touched on the recent moves by the US to overthrow Maduro in Venezuela. Robbie and I talked about Venezuela being a true litmus test for anti-imperialists. We end by talking about Gabbard’s bizarre views on gay rights and what supposedly made her a defender of the LGBTQ community.

Porkins Policy Radio 168 2018 End of Year Special with Abby Martin, Robbie Martin and JG Michael

In the first hour Abby and Robbie Martin for an end of the year special. We kick things off by talking about our overall impressions of 2018. Abby and Robbie touched on the stories and narratives that were most important during this tumultuous year. We then moved into the realm of geopolitics and some of the biggest events which took place in 2018. We talked about the war in Yemen and the continued violence against the Palestinians. We discussed the lack of media coverage on foreign affairs this year, and how Trump has ceded power to the neocon movement when it comes to geopolitics. We touched on figures like John Bolton and what may be in store for America in the coming year. Later Abby talked about the sanctions against Venezuela which led to The Empire Files being shut down. We round out the hour by talking about some of the positive things in 2018 including David Seaman having to close down his news outlet.

In the second hour JG Michael of Parallax View joins me to continue our end of the year special. We focused more on the culture war of 2018. We looked at the right-wing movement and the casualties it sustained this year. JG talks about Gavin McInnes and his recent appearance on InfoWars. We talked about the idea that many of these alt-lite figures are actually fading away. We discussed Ross Douthat’s repulsive article Why we miss the WASPs and the rehabilitation of war criminals like George HW Bush and Dick Cheney. JP and I explored what this means for America going forward. We round out the conversation by again looking at some positives like the momentum of figures like Ocasio-Cortez and others. I also brought up the strange revelation that white supremacist Jean Francois Griepy took $25,000 from Jeffrey Epstein in 2014.

Porkins Policy Radio 167 Stolen Future with Stephen Singular and the Miami Herald on Jeffrey Epstein

In the first hour we are joined by frequent guest Stephen Singular to discuss his latest book Stolen Future: The Untold Story of the 2000 Election. We start off by discussing how this book came into being. Stephen talked about his experiences back in 2000 investigating how the election was manipulated down in Florida and who may have played a role in this. We talked about Election Systems and Software, the industry leader in electronic voting machines, and the company behind the infamous punch cards and hanging chads. Stephen talked about ES&S’ deep ties to the Republican Party and to wealthy far-right groups. Later we discuss how this problem was never solved due to 9/11 and the media’s unwillingness to probe the issue. Stephen and I talk about the future of voting and the dangers of not confronting these issues.

In the second hour I talk all about the recent Miami Herald series on Jeffrey Epstein and the subsequent media coverage. I talk about the recent settlement Epstein made with attorney Brad Edwards, explaining how this is actually a win a a step in the right direction. I also talk about the important federal case seeking to overturn the deal Epstein and his cohorts received. Later I break down the Herald’s series, Perversion of Justice, and discuss what it got right and wrong. I talk about the new information that the Herald has uncovered and how this is yet again another positive step towards real justice.

The Ochelli Effect: Blue Chips Orange Dip

From Ochelli.com

Mike Swanson Author of The War State kicked off Tuesday telling us about his trip to Dallas for the recent JFK conferences.

In Wall Street, World Chuck and Mike discussed the market behavior and the interesting displays by those who lost in the NYC casino. Plus what did the elections tell us about 2020? Was the Blue Ripple exactly what Trump needed to have a handy Scapegoat for the next 2 years?

We also got an update on Mr. Swanson’s bets on political outcomes and the real world effect of the Trump policies best observed by the Art on No Deals and shady steals.

News items along the way and some hints that a long-standing MSM gatekeeper may have been disturbed by or friend Carmine were also part of the conversation

When next Tuesday happens Chuck suspects there will be a lot more action to cover in the game of Bears versus Bulls.
Blue Chips Orange Dip

In the second hour, Chuck asked Pearse Redmond if he ever heard the phrase, “feed me to the lesbians”. Apparently, this phrase is a normal part of the Millennial lexicon and a popular T-shirt. Chocolate is another option in its use but the phrase is as follows

Interjection
“dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians”
(colloquial) Expression of surprise at something incredible.

Saudi Arabia and Russian Agent Orange Trump became the focus as Pearse and Chuck tried to make sense of the presser with Donny earlier in the day. Ivanka Trumps e-mail didn’t even get a minute on the show. Is the administration playing 1D Chess now?

The idea that arms deals and oil prices would dictate policy in this country being spoken aloud is actually refreshing. Now consider if the dishonest idiot in the office can actually play the complex game of diplomacy required to accomplish anything along those lines.

Pakistan and the failing War of Terror rounded out the discussion. Arms dealers gotta deal yo. President Disputes logic and reason at all times should be the headline.

CIA Conclusion, Saudi Crown Prince Involvement In Murder, but don’t ask the guy who did the glowing magic orb eight ball dance about it. Battling The “Deep State” is actually being the best weapon of mass distraction ever.
