Porkins Policy Radio episode 151 Trump-Putin Summit and Super Villain Elon Musk

In the first hour JP Sottile joins me to break down the recent Trump-Putin Summit in Helsinki. We start off with Trump’s recent reversal on comments he made stating that Russia didn’t interfere with the election. JP and I then get into the press conference itself and pick apart some of the major takeaways. JP talks about Bill Browder and Putin’s allegations about him and Hillary Clinton. We also talk about the strange “dry mouth” that Trump appeared to have during the presser and explore Trump’s possible health problems. I also ask JP about his strange comments regarding Israel. JP offers up his own analysis of this, diving into the geopolitics of Syria and Russia. We finish off by talking about the possibility that the US is seriously planning regime change in Iran. JP and I focus on the recent actions of the MEK, the bogus bomb plot in Paris, and Russia’s desire to ensure that Iran is not an energy powerhouse in the region.

In the second hour Aaron Franz joins me to discuss Elon Musk’s latest PR disaster. We talk about his insane tweets accusing diver Vern Unsworth of being a pedo, and his disastrous attempt to save the Thai soccer team with a mini-submarine. Aaron and I explore Musk’s cult of personality and his savior complex. We discuss the concept that Musk is both a modern day super hero and villain. Aaron talks about the hyperreailty of Musk and the Marvel Universe as well. We finish off the conversation touching on insane billionaire in general and the strange place they hold in our society.

In the first hour Paul Wright of the Human Rights Defense Center and Prison Legal News joins me to discuss prisoner rights. We talk about the current state of America’s 2.5 million incarcerated individuals and the tremendous hardships they face. Paul talks about the legacy of Prison Legal News and how it represents one of the only truly independent media outlets talking about the prison system.

The Ochelli Effect – Interactions Between Organisms

From Ochelli.com

We speak in the first hour with long-time-listener Regular Joe. It is somewhat troublesome to attempt a conversation with a Trump supporter. Joe and family go to the dentist and find that families are strangers next to each other. It is often a good thing to unplug. Joe also gives tips on how to avoid a pointless conversation feedback loop. Social media may be video games designed for people with no skills.

Pearse Redmond, also known as Porkins, appears in the second hour. Chuck and Pearse would both like a ticket back to the real timeline they came from. Is it 1984? Why do right wing celebrities suck? President Trump is exactly the damaged idiot to lead a parade of damaged idiots. Is this why David Bowie was “Afraid of Americans”? After sorting through and separating fake news from filler, it is easy to get exhausted.

Two hours with two friends from the show. We all urge you to be fearless. Big brother is not to be embraced. War is not peace. He who controls the present does control the past. He who controls the past may indeed control the future. Chuck believes we have the option to write it all ourselves or allow others to write and edit it all for us.

Don’t get it twisted!

Porkins Policy Radio episode 147 Ed Opperman on IG Report, Roger Stone, and Child Detention Centers

This week Ed Opperman joins us for a wide ranging discussion on some of the most pressing issues of the past few weeks. We start off by discussing the recent IG Report and the way that Trump supporters and the media have covered the story. Ed and I then dive into Roger Stone and his continual legal downward spiral. We also touch on Dennis Hoff, Scott Thorson, and Heidi Fleiss.

In the second hour Ed and I rant about the abhorrent situation at the border. We talk about the inhumane policy of locking up up children and the trauma that the Trump administration is inflicting on these kids. We juxtapose this with the MAGA obsession with child abuse and pedophilia. Ed also talks about the phony Child-Sex Camp out in Tuscon, and how gullible the Trump MAGA people have become.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 145 The Tommy Robinson Con and Qanon’s Coup

In the first hour Keelan Balderson of WideShut.co.uk joins us to talk about the truth behind Tommy Robinson’s arrest and the media circus that surrounds it. Keelan explains the legal reasons for why Robinson was held in contempt of court. He also discusses how Robinson posed a serious threat to the criminal case he was pretending to “expose.” Keelan talks about how Robinson’s actions could have actually helped the alleged pedophiles get off. Keelan and I discuss the Rotherham and Rochdale child sex ring scandals and the real journalists and activist’s who uncovered it. We also explore the history of Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson, aka Andrew McMaster, aka Paul Harris. Keelan explains the circumstances where Tommy grew up in Luton. Including the extremist cult group Al Muhajiroun and their connections to the security services, and the connections between far right football hooligan groups and the security services. Keelan and I also discuss the history behind the English Defense League and the role that extremist Zionist groups have played in its formation.

In the second hour Robbie Martin of Media Roots and A Very Heavy Agenda joins us to discuss the latest developments in the ongoing Qanon saga. Robbie tells us about the recent break-up Alex Jones and Jerome Corsi had with their once beloved Q. We talk about how Qanon has continued to evolve both in substance and influence. Robbie lays out his theories for Q being a person or persons working directly for Trump himself. We also talk about the way that Qanon has been able to cultivate a massive following of rabid supporters, who will essentially do whatever is asked of them. Robbie and I also touch on how Qanon has helped to humanize lunatics like John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani. Robbie also gives us his take on Giuliani’s latest pronouncement about Trump being able to kill James Comey and get away with it.

The Ochelli Effect – Major General Edward Lansdale

From Ochelli.com

Mike Swanson Author of The War State joins us to revisit Vietnam and examine a recent book by Author Max Boot. Many fallacies about the Vietnam conflict are confronted in the opening discussion. However, the primary focus of the conversation is Ed Landsdale. Major General Edward Lansdale was with the O.S.S., The U.S. Air Force, and the C.I.A. The reality of his career and his legend have both evolved over many decades. Due in part to his alleged involvement in The Assassination of JFK, but also his provable operational work in The Philippians, Operation Mongoose, and the early stages of the Vietnam conflict. He rose to the rank of Major General and was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal in 1963. His death in 1987 did not cause his legend to fade. Max Boot released a book this year which Mike Swanson explains quite a bit about in hour 1. Pearse Redmond continues with the topic of Landsdale in hour 2 relating to his foray into Hollywood films. The Quiet American is a twice made movie that seems to have been influenced and exploited by Landsdale and the C.I.A. Plus we discuss the latest Trumpet madness.

The Ochelli Effect: Fire Fury Fuels Fact Check

From Ochelli.com

This Tuesday night we decode the current mosaic of geopolitical scattershot that is the New World Landscape. The Iran deal is still part of the calculus as Israel continues to justify it’s response to Palestine. Does Trump know what is happening all around him? Mike Swanson talks about the latest version of Neo-cons thoughtless tanks. At the end of the first hour, Chuck and Mike agree that it is tough to prognosticate the many outcomes. Pearse Redmond joins us in hour 2; The conversation seems to continue where it left off before the break. Is The Ochelli Effect good for your mental health? Seems to work for Pearse. What about North Korea? Why is Ollie North the new showrunner at the NRA.? Have we as a nation faced the issue of torture? Fatigue seems to be setting in as people normalize the man of no principles that occupies the White House at the moment. Pre-tense no longer required in the newest abnormal under POTUS Agent Orange.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 142 Aaron Franz on sea slug memories

Aaron Franz of TheAgeofTransistions.com joins us for the first hour. We begin by talking about Aaron’s new live version of Trans Resister Radio and Uncle the podcast. Aaron and I then discuss the topic of the imagined dividing line between the real and the fantastic, the objective and the subjective. We talk about how reality and fantasy have begun to blur increasingly over the past several years. Using Elon Musk as an example we discuss how Musk’s increasingly bizarre pronouncements illustrate this concept. We also touch on statements made by leading scientists that claim we are living in a computer simulation. Aaron and I talk about the deeper occult meaning behind this as well. We also talk about the idea of fake news and how this fits into this paradigm. Later Aaron and I look at a recent study by UCLA which claims that memories are really genetic. We talk about a recent experiment which claimed that memories could be implanted within sea slugs. Aaron and I discuss the dangers of this, including the idea of erasing bad memories from ones mind.

In the second hour I go it alone. I start by talking about the amazing Dingle Record Shop and it’s proprietor Mazz O’Flaherty. I then go on an extended rant about how much I despise the endless news cycle of death and trauma. I focus mainly on the recent massacre in Gaza and my disgust at the way many people seem to be celebrating this. I also talk about the idiocy of reneging on the Iran deal and how this is most likely being orchestrated by the neocons. Later I touch on how everything seems to be reverting back to the Bush years, or possibly even worse. I also talk about how this has effected me on a personal level.

Porkins Polcy Review episode 141 Exploitation of trauma and neocon psychology with Yuval Laor

This week I am joined by Yuval Laor of the Open Minds Foundation, and one of my co-hosts for Open Minds On Air. We discuss the neoconservative movement, the exploitation of trauma, and Israel. Yuval and I start off the conversation with the breaking news that Donald Trump has decided to pull the US out the Iran Nuclear Deal. We talk about what this means for America and the prospect of war with Iran. Yuval gives us his perspective of this as an Israeli-American, and how the public within Israel is reacting to the news. Yuval and I then shift into the neocons who are obviously happy with Trump’s latest pronouncement. We look at their belief system and the psychology of the movement by using Israel as a template. Yuval talks about the continual use and exploitation of the holocaust and the trauma of it with in Israel. He discusses how this has manipulated Israeli society on a psychological level to the point where they view the Holocaust as constantly being right around the corner. We talk about the way that the Israeli state continually traumatizes its youth with regards to the Holocaust. Yuval and I then break down how this is the same method by which the neocons have sought to manipulate people here in the United States.

Later Yuval and I talk about the power of awe and fervor. Again using Israel as an example we talk about “Jerusalem Syndrome” and how it works on people who are not even religious. Yuval talks about John Kerry’s awe moment at Masada as well. We then shift into high fervor people and their inability to view the world outside of a good vs. evil black and white mentality. Yuval explains how the neocons have psychologically fallen into this mindset, and the ways in which it has effected their views on foreign policy. We also address whether neoconservationism is a cult group or a secret society. We also touch on Trump’s psychology and why he is so susceptible to manipulation, particularly by the neocons. Yuval also discusses the concept of a thought-terminating cliché. Yuval then closes out the episode with a very appropriate joke.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 139 Syria Strikes, Skripal Poisoning with JP Sottile and Robbie Martin

JP Sottile joins me in the first hour to discuss the recent airstrikes by the US, UK, and France in Syria. We discuss how this is nothing new for the Trump administration, and how in fact this latest airstrike comes almost on the anniversary of Trump’s earlier strike after the alleged use of chemical weapon. JP and I also discuss how this latest attack appears to have targeted three sites which were completely evacuated and probably were known of in advance. JP talks about the theater that was involved in this latest military action, including Trump’s idiotic use of the phrase “mission accomplished.” We then break down the media’s hyping of this event as a prelude to WWIII. JP and I present several reasons for why this is nothing more than bluster meant to drive traffic on websites. We also explore the notion that this is really the last hurrah of the American Empire. We talk about the decline of US power and their inability to maintain such a large global empire. I talk about the how France has begun filling this imperialist vacuum more and more in Africa.

In the second hour Robbie Martin joins me to breakdown the ever changing narrative of the Skirpal poisoning. We talk about how this fits into the larger context of what we are seeing geopolitically particular with regard to actions in Syria. Robbie talks about how Theresa May wove Skirpal into her decision to help bomb Syria over the weekend. Later we move onto the latest explanation which comes from Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that the Skripal’s were exposed to BZ. Robbie explains what BZ is and the history of the US governments experiments with the chemical. We also mention the State Department cable that mentions the possibility of BZ having been used in Syria. The bizarre claim by former KGB operative Boris Karpichkov that Skripal is connected to the murder of GCHQ’s Gareth Williams is also discussed. We end by talking about the danger of these sorts of operations and the rhetoric that is produces within society.
