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.

Porkins Policy Radio episode 163 The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark with Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy

Documentarians Ray Nowosielski and John Duffy joined me this week to discuss their new book, The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark: The CIA, NSA, and the Crimes of the War on Terror. Ray and John talked about their earlier work covering 9/11. They discussed how they first got involved, and the subsequent hurdles that this sort of journalism presented. They spoke about the CIA’s threats against them after completing their second documentary Who is Rich Blee? John and Ray talked about why they decided to write The Watchdogs Didn’t Bark and what separates this from the numerous books on 9/11 already out there. They spoke about about the legacy of the 9/11 and some of the major figures involved in the cover up who went on to more prominent positions within the government. We touched on CIA director Gina Haspels career which took off when she oversaw the infamous black site known as Cat’s Eye. We also spoke at length about the impact that Michael Scheuer has had on the war on terror. We talked about his role setting up Alec Station and the cult like devotion that his staff had for him.

In the second hour we dive into some of the minutia of the 9/11 attacks. We looked at the strange case of Abu Zubaydah and his interrogation. John and Ray discussed the information that Zubaydah allegedly gave up which linked him to several members of the Saudi Royal family. John and Ray also spoke about the odd deaths of Saudi Prince’s Ahmed, Sultan, and Fahd all within days of one another. We also touched on the role that the NSA played in in covering up key information related to the 9/11 hijackers. We finish off the episode by looking at the current state of the 9/11 research movement.

The Ochelli Effect – Facebook Jamal Khashoggi Ad

From Ochelli.com

Our attention turns from the markets to Sling TV and the collection of data by Facebook and other sites as they collect creepy levels of information.

Pearse Redmond joins the conversation in the second hour. Is there a better body double in the house?

MBS and the Turkish dictator seem to be playing with the Jamal Khashoggi narrative. Chuck and Pearse speculate about the motives.

Is there any other news? Why is it strange to see alternative and mainstream media with the same talking points? Is this a botched assassination cover-up?

Is the king feeble? Is Trump stupid? Is anybody buying any of these excuses they keep offering? Isn’t there a better way to dispose of a body?

The Ochelli Effect – Tragedy Hope News Missing Links

From Ochelli.com

Michael Swanson, former hedge fund manager who runs the financial website WallStreetWindow.com, has a Masters Degree in American History and is the author of the book The War State: The Cold War Origins Of The Military-Industrial Complex And The Power Elite Joins us to discuss Tragedy and Hope with only a vague mention of Carol Quigley.

That’s right, we discuss the recent resignation of another Trump administration staple, and the Kavanaugh ripple in the news-cycle along with the realities of intoxication.

A surprise call-in from longtime supporter of the Ochelli Effect and Patricia B. takes place during this hour. She is visiting Georgia and Chuck invites her for a cup of coffee. For years she has supported the show along with Meria Heller, and Jack Blood. This is the first time she has actually spoken to Chuck, and she got to say hello to the great Mike Swanson.

Mike has also started doing a new YouTube show

In the second hour, Pearse Redmond joins us to try and fit many conspiracy puzzle pieces together. What do we bring to the table?

MEK, Kavanaugh, Vince Foster, Saudi Royals, 9-11, swamp things, and other creatures of the alleged “Deep State”. There should be a book called “How To Get Your Cows To Love Their Butchers” written for the Trumpian GOP.

Porkins always keeps up with the erratic rants from Chuck, and this is a classic example of exactly that.

Long time listener and friend Nick aka @ArtisanLoaf joins me this week. We discussed Elon Musk, his various companies, and his strange and often bad business practices. We started off by talking briefly about Musk’s privileged upbringing in South Africa. We talked about Musk’s first big start with PayPal and his business relationship with Peter Thiel. We then moved onto Tesla and the way the company has been run. We discussed the poor business model that the company has employed under the leadership of Musk. Nick talked about the major financial problems that Tesla has had since Musk took over. We also touched on the problems with Musk’s vision for electric cars and the limitations that Tesla has imposed on themselves as a company.

In the second hour we talked about Musk’s shady acquisition of Solar City. We talked about the possible use of fraud when Solar City rolled out their non-existent solar roof panels. We also touched on the conflict of interest involved in Musk acquiring Solar City, and his pattern of similar behavior over the years. Later Nick talked about the recent SEC suit against Musk. He explained the serious problems that Musk has again created for Tesla. We finished off by touching on the concept of Musk as a cut-rate Howard Hughes, and the cult like devotion to Elon Musk and his vision for humanity. Nick will be returning to the show in a few weeks to expand on these ideas.

The Ochelli Effect: Turkey News Economy

From Ochelli.com

The Author of The War State takes questions from listeners and talks about the pressures from other national markets on the U.S. economy. What effect is Trump having on business in general? Is there a silent inflation built into the current situation?

The crazy world of Elon Musk is in the news. What can the crashes of the past tell us about the future?

Second hour Pearse Redmond takes on Qanon, what the MSM isn’t talking about, and much more. Is there a cage match in the future for the reality TV fool in the Whitehouse and his former apprentice? What does Pearse think of the latest on the performance artist formerly known as Alex Jones?

Is everyone enjoying the show? Is the real Turkey something we should name Trump?

Porkins Policy Radio episode 144 Jon Gold We Were Lied to About 911 The Interviews

9/11 activist and researcher Jon Gold joins me once again to discuss his new book We Were Lied To About 9/11: The Interviews. Jon explains what the book includes and why he decided to compile the book and make it freely available. Jon and I discuss the current state of the 9/11 truth movement and then move onto a few under-reported aspects of 9/11. We look at the strange contradictions and facts about what was happening in San Diego just before September 11th. Jon and I talk about the activities of hijackers Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi in San Diego. We talk about the reports that they entered the country before the FBI claimed they did, and the allegations that Prince Bandar was funneling money to them. Jon elaborates on this by describing Omar al-Bayoumi and his possible role as their Saudi intelligence handler. We also touch on their landlord and FBI informant Abdussattar Shaikh. I briefly talk about how this connects to several strange people in Denver Colorado connected to the 9/11 attacks.

Later Jon and I talk about Gina Haspel’s confirmation as CIA head and her legacy as a torturer. We talk about her role destroying CIA torture tapes and why Kahlid Sheik Mohammad wanted to offer his analysis of Haspel. We discuss the idea that this is the CIA’s way of telling the world that they will continue to torture. Jon and I also rant about Rudy Guliani and Michael Scheuer’s role in the 9/11 cover-up.
