Porkins Policy Radio episode 173 Hugo Turner on Elliot Abrams, Iran Contra, and War Crimes in Central America

Friend of the show Hugo Turner joined me this week to discuss Elliot Abrams and his legacy in Central America and role in the Iran-Contra affair. We began by discussing the roots of Iran-Contra and why it is still largely ignored by the media. Hugo discussed the origins of the affair going all the way back to the October Surprise in 1980. We talked about the other events that opened the door into Iran-Contra including the attempted assassination of Contra leader Eden Pastora in Costa Rica. Hugo and I then explored Abrams role in Iran-Contra itself. We also discussed Abrams role in covering up war crimes in El Salvador like the El Motoze massacre. Later Hugo and I talked about the genocide in Guatemala which Abrams helped facilitate. We also discussed the complex web of people and groups involved in drug trafficking, terrorism, death squads, and the suppression of the poor. We closed out the conversation by looking at the parallels between the 1980’s and the current political environment. We used the current situations in Venezuela and Haiti as examples.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 64 Chuch Ochelli on the Election, AI, Wikileaks, and more

My guest with week was the one and only Chuck Ochelli of The Ochelli Effect. Chuck and I had a wide ranging discussion about the current state of affairs here at home and around the world. We began by touching on the recent fall out from the Trump tapes and how this is being interpreted by the public. Chuck and I mention that the lawsuit against Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein for raping a 13 year old is no where to be seen. Chuck and I talk about the hypocrisy from both sides when it comes to talking about sexual violence. We also talk about how the neo-cons will be the big winners this election. Later we discuss how the rise of artificial intelligence and how this is being normalized in society and culture. Chuck and I talk about the recent statements from Bill Gates warning about the dangers of AI. In the second hour we expand on the AI discussion and move into the realm of surveillance. Chuck and I also touch on the recent coverage of Wikileaks and Julian Assange. We end by offering up some of our own solutions for the problems we face.

Porkins on Beard World Order ep. 4 World War 3

I recently had the great pleasure of joining Guillermo Jimenez  and James Corbett on their podcast series Beard World Order to discuss the notion of World War 3.

From Traces of Reality:

Welcome to The Beard World Order: In this episode of the BWO, Beardlitarians Guillermo Jimenez, James Corbett, and Pearse Redmond consider the possibility of World War III. Could it happen? What would it look like? Has it already begun?

As military tensions mount around the globe, and the “New Cold War” begins to heat up, is there an endgame in sight? How do NATO, Russia, China, and other BRICS nations fit into the picture? What is Russia really up to in Latin America? Given the historical and economic implications of WWI and WWII, who stands to gain from an all-out global confrontation — and in what way?

And, of course, the most important question of all, just what the hell can we do about it?

Serious stuff. NO LAUGHING MATTER. But we find a way to do it anyway.

Enjoy.
