The Ochelli Effect – Facebook Jamal Khashoggi Ad

From Ochelli.com

Our attention turns from the markets to Sling TV and the collection of data by Facebook and other sites as they collect creepy levels of information.

Pearse Redmond joins the conversation in the second hour. Is there a better body double in the house?

MBS and the Turkish dictator seem to be playing with the Jamal Khashoggi narrative. Chuck and Pearse speculate about the motives.

Is there any other news? Why is it strange to see alternative and mainstream media with the same talking points? Is this a botched assassination cover-up?

Is the king feeble? Is Trump stupid? Is anybody buying any of these excuses they keep offering? Isn’t there a better way to dispose of a body?

Porkins Policy Radio episode 161 Sam Spadino on Trump Daddy Issues and Kanye West with War Criminals

Comedian and activist Sam Spadino joined me this week. We spoke about his latest attempt to ask Donald Trump the simple question, “Who is Jeffrey Epstein”? Sam talked about his arrest at a Trump rally in Rochester, Minnesota. He talked about actually happened and set the record straight. We discussed his time in jail and the the charges brought against him which include resisting arrest and trespassing. Sam also discussed his two conversations with the Secret Service. We touched on the idea that Sam is being monitored, and why Trump is so terrified of people bringing up his relationship with Epstein. Sam also explained why he started yelling Dad as he was being thrown out of the rally.

Later Sam and I talked about the way that many Trump supporters view him as a father figure. We discussed how unhealthy this is, and the effects that it is having on people. We touched on Kanye West’s recent comments about not having a strong male figure in his life. And his desire to have Trump be his daddy. I finish off the show by ranting about Kanye West hanging out with war criminal Yoweri Museveni. I talked about Musevini’s genocide against the Acholi people and how Kanye is not now nor ever will be Tupac.

The Ochelli Effect – Historiography

From Ochelli.com

What will historians eventually decide about the assassination of JFK? Michael Swanson discusses this with Chuck and both partake in educated speculation on the matter.

What does the old rule of perspective have to do with modern conventions?

Mike is writing a book about the Vietnam War and keeps learning new things.

Is the distance of generations required to judge history? How will The JFK Research community be viewed in context?

Will future generations have no desire to care about the Kennedy assassination? Does anyone even remotely think World War One is as important as it actually is?

How did the Romans handle history? How bad are standard textbooks?

Pearse Redmond joins in the second hour.

The latest pointless debates over the SCOTUS nominee are discussed.

The War of Terror is still a thing. One wonders if historians will be able to untangle the mess of the alleged War already in progress.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 157 The Chris Benoit Files w/ Keelan Balderson and US Destabilization in Nicaragua w/ Daniel Kovalik

Return guest Keelan Balderson of WideShut.co.uk was my guest in the first hour. We discussed his recently remastered documentary “The Chris Benoit Files.” The film explores the brutal murder/suicide of WWE star Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy, and seven year old son Daniel Benoit. Keelan breaks down the three day long crime which ended with Chris Benoit’s suicide. Keelan attempted to dispel many of the popular conspiracy theories as we attempted to understand how such an extreme and horrific act could be committed. We also touched on WWE’s official response, the media firestorm over so called “roid rage.” We also discusses how Benoit’s repeated head injuries resulted in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, a degenerative disease which probably played a significant role in his unspeakable acts.

In the second hour University of Pittsburgh Law professor Daniel Kovalik joined me to discuss the current political situation in Nicaragua. We talked about the history of U.S. interference in the Central American nation from the 1950s to early 1990s. Daniel talked about the United States’ repeated efforts to destabilize and unseat the Sandinista government of Daniel Ortega. We explored the root causes of the recent protest movement, much of which stems from proposed social welfare reforms. Daniel talked about the violence that has taken place in Managua and other cities, and how this has been distorted in Western media. Later we talked about the failed assassination attempt of Venezuelan President Maduro, right-wing resistance to an independent leftist Latin America, and Trump’s plans for the region.

This month Pearse Redmond and Yuval Laor explore the issue of conspiracy theories and their power to manipulate individuals and groups. They start off by discussing the popular Qanon theory, breaking down how adherents to this and many other conspiracy theories operate within the structure of a secret society, and the dangers of being in a secret society. Yuval also discusses the concept of “argument from strangeness” and how this factors into both conspiracy theories and miracles. Later they touch on why authoritarian groups such as cults often employ conspiracy theories in order to control and manipulate their members. Finally, they close out the show by discussing the danger of dismissing all conspiracy theories, and the human need to question authority, using the fabricated Nayirah Testimony and the Iraqi WMD’s as examples to support their arguments.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 156 Catholic Church Cover Up with Ed Opperman and Brian Heiss

This week my guests are Ed Opperman and Brian Heiss. First, we covered the latest development in the #MeToo saga: the allegations that Asia Argento abused actor Jimmy Bennet. We discussed who may have leaked this to the New York Times and why. We also touched on the complexities of sexual abuse, and how many victims go on to victimize. The conversation then shifted to the recent Pennsylvania Attorney General report which investigated rampant sexual abuse in the state’s Catholic Church. We talked about our own experiences growing up Catholic. And the culture of abuse within the church and the disturbing levels to which the clergy covered this up.

In the second hour we took aim at Pope Francis and his record of hypocrisy in the mishandling child sex abuse. We touched on Francis’ protection of Cardinal Pell, his former number three at the Vatican, who is now facing charges of child abuse. I also mentioned that Francis presided over the funeral of disgraced Boston Cardinal Bernard Law. We also explored the culture of abuse within the church and the Vatican. Ed and I also explored whether these pedophile priests are men of God or using the cloth to gain access to vulnerable minors. Finally, we closed out with some breaking news on Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort.

NOTE: I got confused when talking about Yashar Ali. Ali was the person who dug up old pictures of Chelsea Manning hanging out with Jack Posobiec, Cassandra Fairbanks, Lucian Wintrich, and others.
