Porkins Policy Radio episode 108 Tom Secker on 9/11 Truth, Legacy of Al Qaeda, and Mind Controlled Hijackers

Tom Secker joins me for a discussion of the sixteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We begin by discussing our general emotions and thoughts on the actual anniversary. We discuss how it unfolds both here in New York and across the ocean in the U.K. Tom and I then discuss how 9/11 has evolved into a heavily scripted and predictable event over the past several years. We touch on how the attack is viewed without context, in terms of what actually happened and what followed it. Tom and I also talk about our own personal experiences navigating the 9/11 truth movement. We then move onto Tom’s recent podcast series dealing with history of Al Qaeda. We discuss the legacy of Al Qaeda today and how the group has become largely forgotten by the public. Tom and then debate where Al Qaeda and “Radical Islamic Terrorism” may be headed. I offer up the theory that we may be entering a reset in terms of Al Qaeda. I point to the recent events in both Turkey and Myanmar as examples. Tom offers up the idea that the real battle is between the US and Russia. We endure hour discussing the recent sonic attacks on CIA agents in Cuba, that have left them with hearing loss and mild brain damage.

In the second hour I talk about a pet theory of mine involving the 19 hijackers and the possible use of mind control or some form of mental conditioning. I use Timothy McVeigh as well as Sirhan Sirhan as a basis for my argument. I pay particular attention to the reports of the hijackers snorting coke in strip clubs, and ponder if this had something to do with the concept of mind control. I finish off by touching on why the 9/11 truth movement is reticent to discuss this concept.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 83 WTC 93 Anniversary and Death of The Blind Sheikh with Tom Secker

Tom Secker joins me for a discussion of the 24th anniversary of World Trade Center Bombing and the recent death Omar Abdel-Rahman aka The Blind Sheikh. We begin by discussing the official theory that the government has presented: that a group of young self radicalized Muslim men bombed the WTC, and had no apparent connection to international terrorism. Tom then breaks down aspects to the official conspiracy theory. We talk about the whole issue of FBI informant Emad Salem and the erroneous allegations that he was allowed to bomb the World Trade Center. Tom explains how this theory has permeated the alternative media and almost become accepted fact. We then begin to explore the other possibility: that this was in fact part of a much larger and complex CIA plot involving many characters that were influential in the Soviet -Afghan War and in the formation of Al Qaeda. Tom talks about the infamous Al-Farooq Mosque in Brooklyn and the role it played as a CIA front for jihadist recruits. Tom explains how all the key players from WTC 93 were intimately connected to the Blind Sheikh and the aforementioned mosque. Tom and I also talk about how WTC 93 is the foundation for the myth and and formation of both Al Qaeda and the War on Terror.

In the second hour Tom and I discuss the latest episode of Homeland and the curious references through out this season to both WTC 93 and the Blind Sheikh. We explore why the CIA would want to bring peoples attention to these incidents. We discuss the notion that this season is all about showing the problems and bad apples within the agency, and the lengths that we must go to in order to stamp them out. Tom proposes that this season enemy is not Islamic-terrorism but the complexities of the world itself and the tough choices that we have to make.

I finish off by briefly talking about the assassination of Kim Jong Nam. I also give an update on when Porkins Great Game will be back.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 11 The Men Who Stare at Goats

Jay Dyer joins us for this episode where we analyse the 2009 comedy The Men Who Stare at Goats, loosely based on Jon Ronson’s book of the same name. It tells the story of a journalist who is inducted into the world of psychic soldiers during the Iraq war. The movie goes on to explain some of the history behind the First Earth Battalion, an experimental Pentagon unit devoted to developing a new generation of super soldier informed by the hippy and New Age movements. We examine what the film leaves out, especially in the form of MKULTRA and similar CIA projects and experiments with similar aims, and ask whether the purpose was not to ask ‘How could love and peace help win wars?’ but to weaponise New Age philosophy and the New Age movement.

The Men Who Stare at Goats is the final movie in the George Clooney/Grant Heslov series before they took the full plunge and made Argo with the help of the CIA. We look at whether Goats – Heslov’s directorial debut – was the final step in their long-term overture to the CIA. The fact that Goats reduces the CIA’s involvement in such projects to a single scene, and was distributed by none other than Overture Films are strong hints towards this. We also map out the evidence and implications of state sponsorship of the entire Goats project, from Ronson’s original book and documentary series through to the Hollywood version. The use of technical advisors who were part of these Pentagon units back in the 70s/80s and who were ‘reactivated’ to help fight the War on Terror implies that at least the DOD, if not the CIA, were in favour of this film. We round off by pondering the plausibility of the remote viewing phenomenon.

DisinfoWars with Tom Secker – The Disinfowar on Terror

From Boiling Frogs Post:

Today I am joined by Pearse Redmond of PorkinsPolicyReview.com and one of the hosts of the BFP roundtable. We expand on the last two episodes, responding to some listeners comments, in particular explaining our views of the Oded Yinon plan for a ‘greater Israel’ and the persistent but false rumour that Shin Bet were secretly behind the Entebbe hijacking. Our discussion also explores how Israel is a magnet for people’s attention and hostility not just in the Middle East but all across the world, and how this is likely a deliberate consequence of NATO’s policy of creating and supporting the Israeli state.

The CIA and Hollywood episode 3 The Recruit

Aaron Franz joined in the conversation as we looked at the film The Recruit, which more than any other film we’re covering in this season was moulded by CIA entertainment liaison Chase Brandon.  Like so many films, it tells the story of a young person inducted into a secret world with secret rules and codes of thinking and behaviour, and in doing so inducts the audience into that same world.  We discussed this dynamic from various angles – black operations, secret societies, occult or mystery school philosophies – before studying Brandon’s appearance in the most fascinating ‘making of’ documentary ever made.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 27 The White Female Terrorist

This week I am joined once again by Tom Secker and Jon Ryman for a roundtable discussion about white female terrorists.  We take a look at how white female terrorists have been portrayed in Hollywood movies and TV shows, and examine how these cartoonish representations mimic real life white female terrorists.  We, of course, take a look at one of our favorite white female terrorists, Samantha Lewthwaite, as well as the less known, but equally important, “Jihad Jane.”  We discuss the celebrity status of the white female terrorist in Western society, and how this meme really represents the coming together of several different aspects of the war on terror.  We also speak more broadly about the ever-evolving synthetic War on Terror and how all these  pieces fit together.

Porkins on ClandesTime 033 True Lies and Reel Bad Arabs

I joined our good friend Tom Secker once again on ClandesTime for a very entertaining and in-depth conversation on the documentary Reel Bad Arabs and the Hollywood blockbuster True Lies.

From ClandesTime:

Pearse Redmond of Porkins Policy Radio joined us again to talk about the  the portrayal of Arabs in Hollywood.  We talk about the documentary Reel Bad Arabs, which details much of the stereotyping of Arabs in popular movies, and also the film True Lies as an example of these trends.  We look at some of the limits in the analysis offered by Reel Bad Arabs, the military involvement in making True Lies, and the careers of the actors who played the two main Arab characters in the film – Art Malik, who seems to specialise in playing terrorists, and Grant Heslov who won an Oscar for producing Argo.

Extraordinary rendition in the age of “Hope and Change”

20131009-120913.jpg

Remember back when the neocons in the Bush regime illegally abducted people, many with no real connections to Al Qaeda, and transported them to our imperial colonies to be tortured? Obama certainty does. One of his main campaign platforms was to put an end to this barbaric practice. Well it seems that Barry has tweaked this practice, as he is oft to do with Bush era practices. On October 5th US special forces kidnapped Abu Anas al Libi, an alleged Al Qaeda operative, and are now holding and torturing him on board the USS San Antonio. Since the USS San Antonio is in international waters the laws regarding torture and illegal detention do not apply.

Al Libi is being tortured for his alleged role in the 1998 embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. As Marcy Wheeler points out, this was 15 years ago. So what intelligence could Al Libi possibly have on the amorphous Al Qaeda? Furthermore most active jihadists and al Libi’s wife claim that he has not been an operational member of Al Qaeda is years. The fact that al Libi has been openly living in Libya poses another interesting question; why now? Since murdering Gaddafi and colonizing Libya, the imperial regime in Washington could at anytime have asked the Libyan government to hand over a man who has been living openly in the North African country. Yet instead they decide to send in the special forces and abduct him. This is all theater designed to brainwash the public into believing that the war on terror is still a threat to our way of life. It diverts attention away from certain issues that the Obama regime would prefer we didn’t focus on, i.e. NSA spying, CIA funding of Al Qaeda, and so forth. Obama and his thugs can stand tall and pretend that they are protecting us from the menace of Islamic terrorism, while they continue to terrorize the Islamic world. This tactic of interrogation at sea is also another way for the Obama regime to falsely claim that they don’t just drone terrorists. That instead they try to capture them when they can. They have used the case of Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame as an example of this method. If Abu Ana’s al Libi is the terrorist mastermind Washington would have us believe why was he not sent to New York to stand trial? Why is he instead being held illegally in a location more secretive than Guantanamo Bay?

The putrid little scumbag known as John Kerry offered up this little gem in regards to the abduction of Al Libi

I hope the perception is in the world that people who commit acts of terror and who have been appropriately indicted by courts of law, by the legal process, will know that the United States of America is going to do anything in its power that is legal and appropriate in order to enforce the law and to protect our security,
via RT

Clearly Kerry is a complete psychopath. He has absolutely no regards for the rule of law. If he did then he would not be fine with kidnapping a a man in a foreign country, whisking him away to a naval ship, holding him incommunicado with out a lawyer or being mirandized, and torturing him for information. I suppose that if the Yemenis government legally decided through their court system that John Kerry and Barack Obama were guilty of murdering women and children with drones, it would completely be in their right to go to Washington, put black bags over heads and send them to a dungeon for “interrogation.”
