The Opperman Report: Pearse Redmond on Claude Taylor, Jeffrey Epstein Updates and much more

I joined good friend Ed Opperman to discuss some of the latest so called revelations regarding Jeffrey Epstein and his sexual trafficking enterprise. I talk about the numerous armchair investigators that continually repackage old material as breaking news when it comes to this case. I go into detail about Claude Taylor, a low level Clinton administration employee, and his claims about both Trump and Epstein. Ed and I talk about the problems with Taylor’s story and his bizarre background. I also touch on his relationship with Louise Mensch and Taylor’s claims of having a source within Eric Schneiderman’s office. Later I talk about the media cycle of a Jeffrey Epstein story and offer my theory and analysis as to how and why they happen the way they do. I also talk about the rehabilitation of Alan Dershowitz and his meeting in Mar A Lago with Trump shortly after coming into office.

In the second hour Ed and expand the conversation and talk about the political crisis in Turkey, , Jared Kushner and his shady dealings with Qatar, how Trump destroyed the USFL, and the dynastic ambitions of the Trump and Kushner family. Ed and I end by touching on the recent ban on Trans soldiers and how the Pentagon is responding to it.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 102 South Asian Scandals and Trumps Foreign Policy

On this solo episode I discuss two major geopolitical situations and their possible impact in the region and on the US. I begin by breaking down the political crisis that is unfolding in Afghanistan with Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum and the allegations that he ordered the beating and rape of a political rival. I explain the back story of these allegations and how they have presented a serious political challenge for Afghan President Ghani these past several months. I also discuss Dostum’s attempts to return to Afghanistan from Turkey, and his new political alliance with the power provincial governor, Mohammad Atta Noor. Later I offer up my own analysis as to how Trump may or may not handle this particular geopolitical situation, while also focusing on the ongoing campaign of violence being perpetrated by the Taliban.

In the second hour I focus on Afghanistan’s next door neighbor Pakistan and the political crisis that it is facing. I explain how the Panama Papers are very close to ousting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. I also look at how this is similar in someways to the continuous scandals involving Trump and his immediate family. I attempt to analysis how both these geopolitical situations will be a serious test of the Trump administration and why we should pay more attention to foreign affairs.

Porkins on The Ochelli Effect

I recently joined good friend Chuck Ochelli for the first hour of this Friday show. We discussed the most recent Trump media shit show, mainly exploring the “scandal” over whether or not CNN blackmailed a Reddit user. Chuck and I talked about the strange symbiotic role that the alt-media and the right wing has with outlets such as CNN. I also talk about Alan Dershowitz’s latest transformation and how he has emerged from the shadows of scandal and Jeffrey Epstein with the help of his minion Mike Cernovich. Later Chuck and I explore the idea that Trump may actually be suffering from some form of mental illness and the early stages of something like dementia or Alzheimer’s. Chuck and I discuss how the subject of Hillary Clinton’s health was totally acceptable, where as discussing the president’s is a taboo topic.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 97 The Decline of Leaking: From Chelsea Manning to Reality Winner

Tom Secker and Robbie Martin join me for a very wide ranging discussion on everything from Reality Winner to Dennis Rodman. Tom and I start off the conversation by talking about the Wikileaks Twitter account tweeting about our issue on The American Journal of Economics and Sociology. We talk about the obvious divide right now between Assange and Wikileaks not just in terms of Twitter, but in terms of their media strategy. The three of us then dive into the bizarre case of NSA leaker Reality Winner. We theorize as to whether she is a true leaker, or a truly disgruntled employee. We discuss the possibility that Winner was set up to leak, and if this is really a move by the Trump administration to ward off future potential leakers. Robbie and Tom also touch on the strange behavior of The Intercept and how they mismanaged this entire story and their lack of protection of Reality Winner.

In the second hour we ponder the question as to whether Reality Winner represents a bookend to the celebrity culture of leakers and whistleblowers. We take a close look at Chelsea Manning and her recent media interviews. The three of us talk about the media’s obsession with Manning as a trans celebrity, and the ways in which they have sexualized and fetishized her since her release from prison. We discuss how the media has largely ignored or forgotten the true reasons for why she was imprisoned in the first place: leaking thousands of government documents. We talk about the notion that Bradley Manning and the actions associated with him are now dead and therefore are no longer a topic of discussion among the media. We round out the conversation by talking about Dennis Rodman’s most recent trip to North Korea. We talk about the possibility that Rodman is being used as either a back-channel or some form of intermediary between Kim Jong-Un and US intelligence. Robbie, Tom, and I also touch on the cryptocurrency Potcoin which has sponsored Rodman’s trip to the Hermit Kingdom.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 93 What Ever Happened to Egypt with Caram Kapp

Today I am joined by friend of the show Caram Kapp. Caram was last on episode 42 The Homeland Hackers, and returns to discuss the Egyptian uprising six years later. We start off by discussing the basics of the uprising and some of the behind the scenes actors. Caram explains his own experiences as an Egyptian, and as someone who was there on the ground around this time. We touch on the rumors of Western manipulation and how some of these allegations have overshadowed the real life grievances of the Egyptian populace and their reasons for wanting to get rid of Mubarak. Caram and I then move onto the two most important actors of the revolution (The Muslim Brotherhood and the Army) and how they became the ultimate arbiters of the revolution. Caram talks about his time in Cairo just after Brotherhood leader Muhammad Morsi was elected. Caram describes the parallels between Morsi and his brief tenure as president to that of Donald Trump. We talk about similarities in both personality and demeanor, as well as the ways in which Morsi represented “change” and ran on a campaign of making “Egypt Great Again.” Caram and I also discuss the notion that Morsi or those around him were well aware of the realities and influence of the Egyptian military, and understood that they may have been used as a stopgap to put the military back in place.

We expand on this more in the second hour exploring other parallels between Trump, Morsi, and current Egyptian President al-Sisi. Caram and I look at the ways in which al-Sisi and Trump have managed to normalize the military and the police, even when engaging in extreme behavior. Later Caram and I look at some of the recent geopolitical developments in Egypt and how they mirror actions here in the US. We look at the escalating tensions between Sudan and Egypt over the contested Halayeb Triangle and how this mimics Trump’s rhetoric against Mexico. Caram and I also discuss the current state of Egyptian media which like the revolution has returned right back to where it started. Caram and I finish off by looking at where Egypt may be headed and why it has lost influence within the Arab world, and has become one of the forgotten aspects of the Arab Spring.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 92 100 Days of Trump with Robbie Martin

Frequent guest Robbie Martin joins us for an in-depth discussion of Trump, alt-right, Mike Cernovich and more. We begin by discussing Trump’s completion of the “magical” hundred days in office. Robbie and I talk about the media strategy that Trump and his team employed for these first hundred days in the White House. We look at how Trump has reversed positions on nearly all of his campaign promises and the timing of this coinciding with the end of the hundred days. Robbie and I both give our theories as to why he has reserved course before diving into the reaction from his hardcore alt-right base. Robbie and I discuss how the alt-right base has continued to support Trump and defend him despite his broken and reversed promises. Robbie talks about the ways in which they have shifted the argument away from Trump’s failures and onto the neocons, Clinton’s, and leftists in general. We also talk about the most recent invocation of the great existential threat, Russia and Putin. Robbie and I touch on the recent congressional testimony of Sally Yates, and why the democrats are so obsessed with going after Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

In the second hour Robbie breaks down the strange bromance going on between neocon propagandist Eli Lake and alt-right propagandist Mike Cernovich. Robbie explains the strange similarities between recent stories put out by Lake and Cernovich, which seem to allude them to having the same sources. We talk about the bizarre rise of Cernovich and the way in which the mainstream media continues to prop him up and support him. We also touch on the idea that Cernovich is being groomed to take over from Alex Jones should his legal problems continue to get worse. I also update the listeners on the Giuffre v Maxwell defamation case and Cernovich’s meddling in it. We end by discussing where the hardcore racialist segments of Trump’s base will end up in the foreseeable future. I also do my best impression of Mike Cernovich’s lisp.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 72 Member South Park Season 20 with Emma Redmond

Today I am joined by my sister Emma to discuss and dissect season 20 of South Park. We begin by explaining what transpired this season: Mr. Garrison becoming President, Cartman falling love, gender wars, and the dangers of internet trolling. We begin by talking about the “Member Berries” and their devious plot to use the power of nostalgia to elect the Trump like Mr. Garrison. Emma and I discuss the power that nostalgia can have on ones psyche, and how we are constantly manipulated into following certain trends because of it. We then move onto the the issue of trolling which features prominently through out this whole season. We talk about Gerald’s trolling and explore the idea over whether it is in fact ok or funny to troll. Next we talk about the the gender wars that ensue through out South Park and the world at large. We talk about Butters transformation as a men’s rights activist and how this is mirroring society at large. Emma and I also touch on how Butters is schooled in all of this with the help of Bill Clinton.

In the second hour we break down South Park’s portrayal of Trump as Mr. Garrison. We talk about why Matt Stone and Trey Parker decided to use Garrison as a stand in for the president-elect, and if it worked as a statement and as a comic device. We round out the episode by discussing the genius of South Park as a show. We talk about how the series, and this season in particular, manages to show that the true enemy among us is society and ourselves. Emma and I also have a candid discussion on the dangers of horse porn.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 62 OJ Simpson Theories and Lies with Brian Heiss and Ed Opperman

Today we continue our series looking at the 21st anniversary of the OJ Simpson trial with return guests Brian Heiss and Ed Opperman. The three of us explore a wide variety of theories surrounding the case. We begin by looking at some of the false theories put out again and again by the media such as, Jason Simpson or Glenn Rogers as the killer. Next we move onto the issue of Joey Ippolito being behind the murder and his connections to all of the principle and secondary persons involved in the case. Brian explains some of his recent research into OJ friend Donald Soffer his connection to the Bronco chase, and to notorious drug trafficker Joey Ippolito. The three of us discuss what the Bronco chase may have really been about, and how this is still one of the least understood events of the case. Later we explore the role of celebrity culture in creating many of the personalities surrounding the trial. We focus particularly on Faye Resnick’s rise to stardom in the aftermath of the murder of her best friend. The three of us also discuss the role that domestic abuse played in the trial and in the public’s conception of what transpired on June 12 1994. As we round out the discussion we pick a part some of the media’s favorite false facts, such as OJ stopping his arthritis medicine, and how these have made their way into the public’s mind. We also manage to mention Trump and his various connections to OJ Simpson.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 58 Watergate, Clinton, CIA, drugs, and more with Tom Secker & Guillermo Jimenez

In the first hour I am joined by Tom Secker of Spy Culture. We discuss his recent article examining the 1975 conspiracy classic Three Days of The Condor. We examine the film and its bizarre history; having former CIA Director Richard Helms on set for a day of shooting. Tom and I explore the notion that this was a first step for the CIA and their evolving relationship with Hollywood. Next we move on to the recently declassified CIA report on the Watergate scandal. We talk about the admission by the CIA that they had an active operative, Eugenio R. Martinez, among the plumbers feeding them information. Tom highlights the many important facts left out of the mainstream narrative of Watergate. Tom and I also discuss the notion that this declassification may be a warning to the current presidential candidates. Tom and I compare Nixon and Hillary Clinton, and wonder if the CIA is sending her a direct message not to mess with them.

In the second hour we are joined by Guillermo Jimenez of the Tax Revolution Institute. Guillermo begins by discussing the idea that Trump fits the mold of a South American populist leader. We discuss the general lack of sophistication when it comes to this election cycle, and political discourse in general. We also spend some time discussing the issue of drug use amongst the candidates and the office of the presidency in general. The three of us ponder if having presidents hooked on drugs is a tactic used by the Deep State to ensure control. We close out by discussing the melding of celebrity culture with politics, and the nihilistic worldview that has gripped the nation during this election.
