The Ochelli Effect: Remember September Eleven

From Ochelli.com

Continuing the search for meaning in the in the alternative views of 9-11 we attempt to hold a unique conversation set with some people of interest and invite callers to join.

In the first hour, author, Dean Hartwell and Chuck talk about what really matters in the aftermath of the alleged terror attacks in 2001.

Chuck explains how the date had an ugly meaning to him throughout his life. Dean and Chuck try to sort out the reasons why it still matters to everyone listening.
Remember September Eleven

In the next hour, Adam Fitzgerald joins Chuck and Porkins to get into the larger agenda that may have been 17 years ago.

Callers including “Spent Kent” get into the discussion, and the time seems to fly.

Mass Distraction Weapons of self-destruction, and the appeals to authority that force freedom from the foolish who seek safety.

Where have all the 9-11 truthers gone? What did most fail to learn from the JFK Research community?

The CIA and Hollywood episode 13 Race to Witch Mountain

James Evan Pilato is our latest guest as we dissect the 2009 Disney UFO adventure Race to Witch Mountain.  We start off looking at Disney as a corporation – its long standing interest in UFOs and extraterrestrials, the connections to government agencies and their recent takeover of the fantasy genre.  We then get into Race to Witch Mountain itself – a strange blend of a kids’ movie, a love letter to the UFO culture and an homage to spy thrillers especially Enemy of the State.  Next, we examine the deliberately hyperreal nature of the film and dwell on the effects of a fantasy movie set in the real world with real people.  A children’s movie about ‘illegal aliens’ being pursued under the Patriot Act is not Hollywood’s typical output.

Then the conversation moves on to the mysterious CIA involvement in Race to Witch Mountain, which the CIA themselves deny but the director Andy Fickman insists took place.  After discussing the CIA Inspector General’s Report on their Engagement with the Entertainment Industry we move on to the question of infiltration of the UFO culture, and the use of UFOlogy to infiltrate alternative cultures more broadly.  We round off looking at the effect of films like this on people’s perceptions and expectations of government secrecy, and we each try to answer the question ‘are you a believer?’.
