Porkins Policy Radio episode 189 Lizzy on Al Kamandjati and how to help in Palestine / George Nader Arrest

This week I am joined once again my good friend Lizzy to discuss her work in Palestine. Lizzy began by talking about her own personal journey which has led her to live and work full time in Ramallah. We discussed her work with Al Kamandjati, a non-profit which offers world-class music lessons for Palestinian children. We talked about the mission of Al Kamandjati and its founder Ramzi Aburedwan. Lizzy talked about Aburedwan’s life growing up in the Al Amari refugee camp and how this led him to create the organization. Lizzy touched on the day to day struggles that Palestinians face including night raids, checkpoints, and violence at the hands of the IDF. She talked about her own personal experiences dealing with this trauma. Lizzy and I talked about several people she knew who were murdered by the IDF and the psychological toll on the families involved. Later we discussed ways for people to get involved. Lizzy talked about the need for people to simply educate themselves about the reality of the situation. We also talked about simple ways for people to organize here in the US. Later we touched on the complacency and apathy in the US when it comes to the plight of the Palestinians, and how we can overcome this.

In the second hour, I change gears and talked about the recent news that international fixer, Trump transition team member, and convicted pedophile, George Nader, was arrested in JFK Airport for possession of child pornography. I talk about the roots of this case which stemmed from his 2018 arrest in Dulles Airport. I touched on his cooperation with Robert Mueller and the strange way he was “let go” and allowed to return to the UAE. I discussed some of the truly heinous charges against Nader. I also talked about what this may mean in the larger context of Trump World.

The Ochelli Effect: Reality Stars Gone Wild

From Ochelli.com

TV Reality Stars Gone Wild ? Porkins takes the first hour as we slog through the alleged alt. media and the strange ways people will flip their positions to serve emotional stupidity. How exhausted is everyone from the news cycles? Does anyone consider the total effect of mass shootings like the most recent one in Florida ? Does the MSM only get motivated when it is white faces crying for their cameras? By The Way what the hell is that noise outside Redmond’s window? Who in their right mind floats banks deciding if you can have a gun? Is the violence built in to the American culture something that can never be removed? It was a late start , but we got to all of this in the first hour…

Second hour the News Vandal himself JP Sottile joins us to add much needed perspective. After Chuck jokes about JP showing up every 28 Days or so we get into it. Has Agent Orange AKA Trump been the thing the CIA has waited for to destroy legitimate Conspiracy culture? Is this The Ochelli Effect’s Yogi Berra Moment? Are You Not Entertained?

No Mike Swanson This week , but we had two of the best regulars on the show we could get. Mike will return soon to complete the Wall Street History discussion and it will link perfectly to this show.

ClandesTime 101 Nightcrawler

From SpyCulture:

Nightcrawler is one of those rare films that is beautifully written, very well executed and is about something that actual matters. It tells the story of Lou Bloom, a young man in poverty-struck Los Angeles who gets into nightcrawling – filming violent crimes and accidents and selling the footage to TV news. In this episode Pearse and I conduct an extensive analysis and review of the film, exploring many different interpretations that often contradict each other. Is Lou a sociopath, or the product of economic circumstances and a media culture that turns violence into a fetish? Are his cohorts Rick (his assistant) and Nina (the director of the news channel) just as guilty and complicit in what happens? Is his rival nightcrawler Joe Loder actually worse than Lou? These and many more questions are explored in this epic discussion.
