Before I begin I just want to note that your instincts are NEVER wrong. You may be wrong about THE reason for your instincts being alarmed, but there always is A reason even if it's not obvious right away.
To catch people up on who he is
http://www.theverge.com/2015/12/21/1064 ... -ceo-firedMartin Shkreli's bad month continues. After being arrested last week on charges of securities fraud, the infamous Shkreli — who came to public attention when he raised the price of drug Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 per pill — has been fired from his position as CEO of pharmaceutical company KaloBios. The company says it sacked Shkreli on December 17th, the same day that he was arrested for allegedly misappropriating money to pay off debts at his previous companies, and shortly before he resigned from his position as CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals on December 18th.
Shkreli became CEO of KaloBios on November 19th after acquiring 70 percent of the company's outstanding shares. He planned to pull a similar trick at his new company that he did at Turing Pharmaceuticals, getting the license for a standard treatment — in this case for a parasitic infection called Chagas disease — and jacking up its price from a few hundred dollars for a course to almost $100,000 for 12 weeks. Shkreli has been joined on his way out of the door by Tony Chase, who stepped onto KaloBios' board with him in November, but it's not clear whether the San Francisco-based drug maker will go ahead with its plan to hike the price of its treatment.
Looking at his wiki, you'll notice a connection to UBS. This is the same company where the man who claimed to know 9/11 vicsim John Salamone worked and had a phone call with Hoi Polloi.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_ShkreliAfter four years as an associate at Cramer Berkowitz, Shkreli worked as an analyst for Intrepid Capital Management and UBS Wealth Management. He then started his first hedge fund, Elea Capital Management, in 2006. In October 2007, Lehman Brothers won a $2.3 million default judgment against Shkreli and Elea.
Instead of focusing on the (probably fake) paper trail, I want to focus on the guy in the videos we have.

In the Zuckerberg thread I mentioned that my litmus test for whether somebody is a hologram is how they interact with real people when in the same room as them. At 2:36 he is seated very close to a female news anchor and it's obvious to me they are responding to each other in very subtle ways that people do, especially in a male/female dynamic. So that's what made me throw out the hologram/sim idea.
But does this guy in the video give you the creeps or what? Want to know why? Because that was his objective.
So what's up with his weird smiles and facial expressions?
The entire interview is jampacked with Shkreli making arrogant smirks for no reason at all. He does that when he is listening and when he is speaking. He blinks at weird times. He overall makes himself the most repulsive person you can possibly be. But that's where he gives himself away.
When you listen to the interview you realize that this guy is really smart. Every business or pharmaceutical question they ask him he answers immediately without thinking about it. It's clear that he is very well-versed on these subjects. Whoever this guy is, he knows business and he knows pharmaceuticals. HOWEVER, all of these weird facial expresions he's making, he's doing consciously. It's obvious.
So to summarize, his knowledge of business and pharma is unconscious, yet his weird smirks and repulsive facial expressions are done consciously.
Let's say this is a real guy and he's truly an arrogant ass. Why would he consciously make an effort to come off this way? Even the biggest assholes and sociopaths will at least try to come off well on national television. Not this guy. Not this CEO.
But how are the news anchors and interviewers responding to his behavior?
They react with complete and obvious disgust. Watch any interview to hear the tone with which they speak to him. And then watch how he isn't bothered in the slightest by it. I mean just look at his wardrobe in the picture above and in the arrest picture. He just couldn't possibly come off worse.
So what we have here is a guy who is consciously attempting to come off as repulsive as possible, and interviewers who are most likely consciously feigning disgust at this man.
Shkreli actually has a live webcam on Youtube and Twitch where he just sits around for hours and "interacts" with other users. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0S2MJre4ak
Before I get to the webcam I'd like to remind readers that Shkreli just got arrested for Securities fraud, creating a pleasant schadenfreude story for the public.
Yet a few days afterwards, there he is on public live stream adding to his completely unlikeable persona. Where are his lawyers to tell him to stop? Reminds me of the Sandusky case.
Anyways I watched close to an hour of his live stream last night and I made several observations. First, I don't think they're really live. Second, he does not make all of those crazy faces from the CNBC interview. Instead what he does is look completely disinterested in anybody he's talking to on the phone or in chat. If he smiles he quickly wipes it off his face. Overall he does his best to seem like an unfriendly, arrogant grump.
To which I ask, if he hates interacting with people so much, why does he spend 5 hours doing it all the time? What does he get out of it? Why does he try to cover up any redeeming quality he might have? His room always seems too perfect. TV, video games, guitar, amp. Just feels staged. Too much "just a regular young guy's room". This is no regular guy, this is a supposed young, successful, ambitious millionaire.
This live stream is very important because it wipes out a devil's advocate argument. "Maybe the reason Shkreli acts so weird on TV is because he has Asperger's or something like that and doesn't realize how bad he comes off". It's in this live feed that it's clear to me that Shkreli is a normal guy with normal social cues. To my gut, he seems like he would be a normal, cool guy if he dropped the act.
So here's where I need help from the Clues Forum. The picture is starting to form. The Psyop is "create a disgusting person who price hiked a life-saving drug for pure profit and get the media and public to tear him to pieces". The idea is to make it seem like Martin Shkreli is the worst person out there in Big Pharma and that if any disgusting people come around, the media and law enforcement will expose them.
So the question becomes....Exactly what are they trying to distract from?
Are they trying to hide that major pharmaceutical companies have cures but keep them secret?
Are they trying to distract from fake illnesses like AIDS?
From other real price gouging from major pharmaceutical companies?
Fix the reputation of Big Pharma by feigning disgust at this Shkreli character?
Something not related to Pharma?
