Porkins Policy Radio 195 JP Sottile on Empire and Climate change & Jon Gold on Bill Barr and 9/11 justice

This week JP Sottile joined me for the first hour to discuss the climate catastrophe. We started out by discussing how many people, including myself, have long ignored this issue. We talked about how daunting and overwhelming the crisis is, and how this has led many to feel as though they can’t do anything to make a tangible change. We talked about Sottile’s recent op-ed in Truthout.org which links climate change to the spread of empire. JP talked about the link between US imperialism, the growth of the oil industry, and the damage is has wrought on the environment. We touched on how the Pentagon outwardly acknowledges climate change but continues to exacerbate the underlying problems. We illustrated these points in a discussion on the melting Arctic and the scramble to control its oil. Closing out the first hour, JP touched on the dangers of oil-related products such as plastic.

In the second hour, Jon Gold joined me to discuss some of the latest developments in the unending quest for truth and accountability with 9/11. We started off the the news that Attorney General William Barr has until Friday to decide to release the name of the high ranking Saudi official who oversaw the handling of 9/11 hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi. Jon talked about how listeners can get involved in pushing Barr to release the name. Later we talked about a U.S. federal judge ordering the FBI to release documents related to a probe of the the al-Hijji family in Sarasota, Florida, and its “many connections” to the hijackers including Mohammaed Atta. We finished the conversation by talking about the military trial of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and four others, which is set for January 2021 at Guantanamo Bay.

The Ochelli Effect – American Made Ignorance Fatigue

From Ochelli.com

Not only do the inmates Run the Assylum but they are members. As an interesting seeker for asylum is protected by the Trump administration, Chuck and the great Michae; Swanson examines the strange web of mental-energy-draining infotainment floating around the English speaking world. Mike will be on more next week to discuss the odd financial landscape that is currently the alleged robust economy. Until then one wonders when the Chinese and American monetary devices might disappear into the dreaded eternally approaching collapse.

Is the ever-looming shadow of Steve Bannon still throwing shade on the Trump Regime despite having moved on to bigger cons?

Pearse Redmond also hit us up with info. on the Epstein case and general issues regarding media coverage, and the lack of blood lust in the apathetic uninformed public mind.

From PI media releases to the latest information explaining the blackmail and other elements of the Epstein case Pearse deals with it all rather well.

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.

The Ochelli Effect – Derivative Narrative

From Ochelli.com

The Author of the War State tells us Wall Street Window .com is moving and being expanded.
Mike Swanson joins us in hour 1 to break down the fascinating underbelly of the cult of civilization clashes. How does the War State behave with zealots in tow?
Chuck draws a comparison between Sith lords and “retired” CIA guys. Mike, as usual, provides the adult point of view. Does Trump understand anything aside from profit for his family and praise from the lowest common denominator?
How creepy are CIA guys? Chinese surveillance Checkers. How deeply embedded is the Alex Jones school of thought in the establishment? Where were the Muslim conspiracy plots before Obama showed up?
No matter how corrupt Trump is, his supporters won’t believe it. Meaningless meetings are up next for King Trump also. Maybe Dennis Rodman will save us all.

Pearse Redmond, Porkins himself enters the second hour. It looks like we have to be on the lookout for the reloaded cocaine import agency. Chuck has said for years that the atrocities of Iran Contra, never ended, and were never fully accounted for.
The Salvador Option and the roots of MS13 are explored. Is anyone paying attention? What does the Catholic church have to do with all of this? Is there a right-wing conspiracy to control the whole planet?
Is Ortega evil? Some of the death squad diplomacy of the United States bares responsibility for much of Latin America’s seekers of refuge turning up on our southern border?
A derivative narrative for the same calendar day that Bobby Kennedy was shot 50 years earlier and Ochelli went entirely independent one year earlier.
