The Ochelli Effect – Developmentally Devolved Kakistocracy

From Ochelli.com

Welcome to Mister Swanson’s neighborhood, kinda. On TYR’s Day Michael Swanson returned after a vacation outside of The Asylum we call America to discuss some of the wicked webs of scandals spun around his home state of Virginia and provide his analysis of the political default positions he observes. Michael also talks about the social strategy of tensions that keep being harnessed to stoke fear. White Flight and post-industrial urban consolidation are nothing new even if the T.V. tries to sell it to you as “New and Improved”.

How is the War on Crime going? The first use of a SWAT Team was to attack The Black Panthers. When people speak of the “War On Terror” is there any real way to determine who terrorists are? A City Of Angels and it’s connection to corruption make it the perfect place to imagine the militarized Police forces of the future. Nixon and his “Law and Order” BS TV specials were only hinting at the BS TV yet to some.

In the second hour Red 6 checked in. Pearse Redmond continued the conversation addressing the current disinformation campaigns which merely serve the best interests of the Military Industrial Complex. Is it just about the oil? Is it really all about The Benjamin’s? Is every fear of Latino People been destined to be combined with the Islamist-Fascist narrative?

Do we now actually live in a Kakistocracy? Quick Note: A new Hell and High Water was added to the 2019 Exclusives page for members at this website: https://ochelli.com/down-loadable-content/2019-exclussives/

The Ochelli Effect: Blue Chips Orange Dip

From Ochelli.com

Mike Swanson Author of The War State kicked off Tuesday telling us about his trip to Dallas for the recent JFK conferences.

In Wall Street, World Chuck and Mike discussed the market behavior and the interesting displays by those who lost in the NYC casino. Plus what did the elections tell us about 2020? Was the Blue Ripple exactly what Trump needed to have a handy Scapegoat for the next 2 years?

We also got an update on Mr. Swanson’s bets on political outcomes and the real world effect of the Trump policies best observed by the Art on No Deals and shady steals.

News items along the way and some hints that a long-standing MSM gatekeeper may have been disturbed by or friend Carmine were also part of the conversation

When next Tuesday happens Chuck suspects there will be a lot more action to cover in the game of Bears versus Bulls.
Blue Chips Orange Dip

In the second hour, Chuck asked Pearse Redmond if he ever heard the phrase, “feed me to the lesbians”. Apparently, this phrase is a normal part of the Millennial lexicon and a popular T-shirt. Chocolate is another option in its use but the phrase is as follows

Interjection
“dip me in honey and throw me to the lesbians”
(colloquial) Expression of surprise at something incredible.

Saudi Arabia and Russian Agent Orange Trump became the focus as Pearse and Chuck tried to make sense of the presser with Donny earlier in the day. Ivanka Trumps e-mail didn’t even get a minute on the show. Is the administration playing 1D Chess now?

The idea that arms deals and oil prices would dictate policy in this country being spoken aloud is actually refreshing. Now consider if the dishonest idiot in the office can actually play the complex game of diplomacy required to accomplish anything along those lines.

Pakistan and the failing War of Terror rounded out the discussion. Arms dealers gotta deal yo. President Disputes logic and reason at all times should be the headline.

CIA Conclusion, Saudi Crown Prince Involvement In Murder, but don’t ask the guy who did the glowing magic orb eight ball dance about it. Battling The “Deep State” is actually being the best weapon of mass distraction ever.

The Ochelli Effect: Vietnam War Racket Raqqa Rolling Thunder

From Ochelli.com

Hour 1 The Author of “The War State” Michael Swanson continues the series of critiques regard the Ken Burns Documentary on Vietnam. The domestic unrest of 1967 and the how and why of the rise of the anti-war movement itself was the main topic. Has COINTELPRO become reborn? Is Jeff Sessions running Drug War 2.0 ? Is the script of a documentary only important in that you must keep the viewer awake ? Are there better films for one to get a realistic portrait of Vietnam ? Is Burns making a point or just putting his audience to sleep? Should we even take all the air time that we have dissecting this series? Chuck and Mike suggest films that WON’T waste your time. Hearts and Minds , Fog Of War , and Winter Soldier make the list among others.

Hour 2 Pearse Redmond joins us to break down much of the current media chaos caused by the Trump era of alternative facts and brush fire war with the truth, good taste and anything thing that once was the artist formerly known as America. The host of Porkins Policy Radio and Chuck attempt to keep pace with the madness. Vietnam War Racket Raqqa Rolling Thunder ? is history repeating itself or simply stuttering? Can anyone keep up?

PPR ep. 113 Michael Swanson on Ken Burns Vietnam Propaganda

Porkins Policy Radio episode 113 Michael Swanson on Ken Burns Vietnam Propaganda

Michael Swanson, the author of The War State, joins me for an in-depth discussion of the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick Vietnam documentary series. I begin the conversation by discussing my own fascination with the Vietnam War. I talk about the influence my father has had on my understanding of the war, touching on his experiences with the army when he was drafted in 1969. Michael and I then dive into the film itself. We look at some of the serious flaws and aspects that the we felt were left out with the film including the CIA and drug trafficking. Michael and I dive deeper into the bizarre narrative that Burns and Novick craft, whereby the politicians and military leaders are never shown actually making policy decisions, but instead are shown as making bad choices with good intentions. Michael and I explore this concept in some depth and offer up our own reasons for why the Vietnam war was not started “in good faith by decent men.” Michael and I also critique the way in which the Gulf of Tonkin Incident is handled in the film. We explain how the film avoids admitting that the whole incident was made up and instead repeats an outright lie.

In the second hour Michael and I talk about some of the government talking heads that appear in film such as: John Negroponte, Leslie Gelb, Rufus Philips, and Donald Gregg. We explore their backgrounds and the destructive impact they had on the Vietnamese people. I talk with Michael about the Phoenix Program which is only briefly touched on in the whole series. We explore why Burns and Novick lay most of the blame of the Phoenix Program at the feet of the Vietnamese. Michael also elaborates on this by talking about the negative portrayal of the Vietnamese through out the film. We pay particular attention to North Vietnamese leader Le Duan and South Vietnamese leader Ngo Dinh Diem. Michael and I also discuss the documentaries skewed version of the assassination of Diem, and how yet again the CIA is almost completely airbrushed out of it. Michael and I touch on Lucien Conein’s integral role in the assassination as well as heroin trafficking. We also discuss the CIA’s war in Laos and discuss the overarching agenda behind the film. Michael and I also talk about the impact of Vietnam and its parallels with the Iraq and Afghan War.
