Geopolitics & Empire

Morgan Lerette discusses his new book on his time as a Blackwater mercenary in Iraq and what a mess war and Private Military Companies (PMCs) are. He talks about laughing in the face of death and how, as bad as Saddam Hussein was, he kept things in check. America starts endless wars with no planned endgame. He tells stories of meeting Erik Prince, John Bolton, and Pat Tillman. He comments on Wagner, how PMCs are being used in Ukraine and Gaza, and the great power conflict. He doesn't believe the U.S. still has any competitor.

Tony Arterburn discusses the cancerous state of America and how our true enemies are not foreign but domestic. The project for world government is futile, we're moving toward decentralization. The elites likely want to blame the economic collapse on America First. We're probably headed for war. Alternative media is getting weird. In chaos there is opportunity.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts discusses the ever widening war and the insanity of the West which seems to be provoking nuclear armageddon from which we might not recover. America is enabling genocide in Gaza which is destroying its international reputation and on top of that, Israel has been trying to get Washington attack Iran. It's strange that only dissident politicians get assassinated or die under mysterious circumstances (e.g. Raisi, Fico) and it's amazing Viktor Orbán is still alive. Washington is opening another front for Russia in Georgia. The migration agenda is deliberate to create Babel. Trump might end up getting assassinated. If they install the digital control system it will be total tyranny. The middle class is being wiped out and the dollar's days seem to be numbered.

Joe Allen discusses his book Dark Aeon and how he thinks that this idea of gnosticism as the all-encompassing boogeyman and blanket-term for everything one dislikes is misconstrued. Throughout history gnostic groups have differed with each other. This obsession with gnosis particularly becomes problematic and unhealthy when transferred into conspiracy culture. The idea that some today promote of Marxism or wokism or transhumanism as just being gnosticism re-branded might be too simplistic, this conflation is cheap and wrongheaded. In some ways the goals of technocratic transhumanism clash with gnosticism. There should be distinctions between big tech, technocracy, transhumanism and gnosticism.

Dmitry Orlov discusses the state of the world and that we have passed the turning point. The West is collapsing on itself and the rest of the world is simply ignoring it and moving on. The U.S. elections are a clown show and the U.S. is going to slowly collapse. He doesn't believe there will be a Third World War. He comments on Russian sanctions and the West's confiscation of Russian assets, the shuffling in the Kremlin's cabinet, the future of Ukraine, the multipolar world, Unitcoin, and how Washington's strategic initiative to dismember Russia will FAIL! His biggest fear is China losing access to cheap energy which would affect the entire world.

Dmitry Orlov on Boosty https://boosty.to/cluborlov
Books https://www.amazon.com/Dmitry-Orlov/e/B001JSB23G

About Dmitry Orlov
Dmitry Orlov is a Russian-American engineer and a writer on subjects related to “potential economic, ecological and political decline and collapse in the United States,” something he has called “permanent crisis”. Orlov believes collapse will be the result of huge military budgets, government deficits, an unresponsive political system and declining oil production.

Orlov was born in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) and moved to the United States at the age of 12. He has a BS in Computer Engineering and an MA in Applied Linguistics. He was an eyewitness to the collapse of the Soviet Union over several extended visits to his Russian homeland between the late 1980s and mid-1990s.

In 2005 and 2006 Orlov wrote a number of articles comparing the collapse-preparedness of the U.S. and the Soviet Union published on small Peak Oil related sites. Orlov’s article “Closing the ‘Collapse Gap’: the USSR was better prepared for collapse than the US” was very popular at EnergyBulletin.Net.

Orlov’s book Reinventing Collapse:The Soviet Example and American Prospects, published in 2008, further details his views. Discussing the book in 2009, in a piece in The New Yorker, Ben McGrath wrote that Orlov describes “superpower collapse soup” common to both the U.S. and the Soviet Union: “a severe shortfall in the production of crude oil, a worsening foreign-trade deficit, an oversized military budget, and crippling foreign debt.” Orlov told interviewer McGrath that in recent months financial professionals had begun to make up more of his audience, joining “back-to-the-land types,” “peak oilers,” and those sometimes derisively called “doomers”.

In his review of the book, commentator Thom Hartmann writes that Orlov holds that the Soviet Union hit a “soft crash” because of centralized planning in: housing, agriculture, and transportation left an infrastructure private citizens could co-opt so that no one had to pay rent or go homeless and people showed up for work, even when they were not paid. He writes that Orlov believes the U.S. will have a hard crash, more like Germany’s Weimar Republic of the 1920s.

Mathew Crawford discusses his research into Covid-19 and bacteriological warfare, his discovery how some in the Medical Freedom Movement (MFM) don't seem to be fighting for freedom, and how this led him to discover links between alternative media, fake opposition, the occult, and military-intelligence.  He looks into theosophy, Nazism, Scientology, Falun Gong, 1960s counter-culture, MK-ULTRA, the Office of Naval Intelligence, and the plans for a New World Order. He believes independence movements (e.g. India) were steered. He questions Bitcoin and says that the military-occult-banking-syndicate virtually has all the power. We are in a pickle!

David Hughes discusses his fantastic book which breaks down how Operation Covid was really a ruse to usher in a global biodigital totalitarian world state. WWIII was initiated in 2020 and is a war for global technocracy which seeks to dismantle democracy around the world. Psychological warfare is being used against the global population in what he describes as Omniwar. Instead of going to war with each other as was the tradition, ruling elites have come to a tacit understanding where they are collectively now working to subdue humanity through global class war.

Mary Margaret Olohan discusses her new book Detrans telling the story of people who had attempted to gender transition, but saw the error of their ways, and are now seeking to de-transition. She explains how teens are groomed for gender transition via social media, how the victims are mostly young girls, the transition process, what happens when the victims de-transition, and who is pushing this ideology.

Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat discusses his excellent new book on the art of diplomacy. Our world today has become multipolar and is beset with conflicts seemingly incapable of resolution. Diplomacy is needed more than ever and his book provides examples and models of what has worked in the past. He provides examples of where the U.S. faltered (e.g. JCPOA with Iran) and where the U.S. succeeded in being reliable (e.g. SALT II). He describes the new world order as the postwar Bretton Woods "rules-based international order". He looks back at the Balkan Wars, the roots of the current Ukraine crisis, the failure of sanctions, and comments on the Israel-Gaza situation. He says you have to remain optimistic otherwise there's no sense in getting out of bed!

Attorney and author Mark Oshinskie discusses his book Dispatches From A Scamdemic, how he saw through the ruse from the start, and how the public health countermeasures were utterly phony and total lunacy. Most people kept their heads in the sand and deferred to this rising cult of "expertism". We must continue maintaining the truth of what happened and counter their attempts at establishing a revisionist history and false narrative. Resisting the mandates wasn't easy, but it was important. He hopes we've peaked in terms of excess deaths. He expects the censorship to continue into the future. The last few years were the biggest ever transfer of wealth from the middle class to the rich. Trump needs to be held accountable. They could lock us down again, the masses would go along with it.

David Gosselin discusses his new writings on how the Western occult oligarchy is creating a new spiritual eco-system and cult religion to better manage their populations and maintain top-down control. A lot of talking points include the UFO phenomenon and aliens or alien gnosis, so-called lost civilizations, psychedelics, and so forth. They are attempting to re-imagine Western civilization's image of man. Pop culture (e.g. X-Men) is really the exoteric version of the esoteric, a typical feature of the mystery cults and schools. The idea is that through bioengineering and the technological transformation of man's body he is going to reach higher spiritual transcendence. The UFO "disclosure" movement is a sort of false flag operation and theosophist jargon such as "Christ Consciousness" is their selling point to re-pattern society. This alchemical tradition depends on people not knowing how their tricks work, once that is demystified, their magic and spells become useless.

Bruce LaDuke discusses Artificial Innovation, Artificial Reasoning, Artificial Intelligence, and how The Powers That Be are interested in harnessing AI for a control grid rather than to empower humanity. A lot of these things such as AI, nanotechnology, and even cryptocurrencies were already preplanned and worked out in the 1980s. They are likely to tokenize everything for a digital matrix and digital prison, which is forming very quickly. There is also potential for hyper-technology and the most astounding era we've seen. There's a large faction of the elite or techno-aristocracy pushing neo-feudalism and transhumanism. A replacement economy is necessary because of all this new technology. He agrees AGI will not be possible, it would have to have a spiritual component to it. However, we are moving toward quantum technology which is spiritual. AI is like brute force thinking and its capabilities are exaggerated, but we are on the cusp of Artificial Reasoning, where the machine can actually think and reason. We are leaning toward the Social Credit System type model.

About Bruce LaDuke
Bruce LaDuke lives with his family on a small farm in southern Indiana.

In 1986, after several years of deep interdisciplinary study on human creativity, Bruce invented Artificial Innovation (AIN). He initially held delivery of this until he could better understand the social impact.

Around 2010, when he attempted to deliver AIN, he was met with fierce opposition from the AI establishment, who he perceived at that time was mainly interested in building an 'AI control grid.'

At great personal cost, Bruce decided to start his entire career over and began work as a contract clerk so he could study AIN in business in real time. He eventually worked his way into a major pharmaceutical company in Indianapolis, IN, and after 20 years there, he moved to a major insrance company in Louisville, KY where he is currently serving as an Associate Director.

During these years of regular employment, he studied AIN from a business context. Eventually, he came to understand that he had developed a framework for how Artificial Reasoning (ARE) and Artificial Innovation (AIN) combine to form Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). He also designed a business system to support full company automation and the application of ASI in business.

During his years of employment he simultaneously volunteered in community and economic development. Bruce used these volunteer experiences to develop a social system and replacement economy for ASI.

He is currently volunteering to establish Borden ASI Institute in southern Indiana to pilot this social system and replacement economy.

He strongly believes that the AI community at large has been incredibly irresponsible in there approach, largely ignoring societal impacts to focus on personal profit and control. ASI is not just another technology, it is a global paradigm shift.

David Murrin discusses his system of forecasting global geopolitics and market trends, which takes into account the stages of empire and imperial decline. There is a rhythm and drumbeat to war which has a bigger cycle of 112 years. We're looking at a struggle between maritime (lateral) democratic governance and landpower (hierarchical) autocratic governance. Democracy is weaker than its ever been. America entered the fifth stage of decline with 9/11. Western leadership is blind and driving the world to war, we're over the brink. WWIII started with the invasion of Ukraine, the Middle East is now on fire, and the last piece of the puzzle is when China chooses to go to war. Decline (e.g. USA) means the fracturing of systems and less to go around. We will continue to see de-dollarization, high inflation, and higher oil and gold prices. Bitcoin, blockchains, and crypto are temporary safe havens that will eventually collapse. We shouldn't worry about Davos Man.

David has been described as a polymath who started his career as a geophysicist, and who then entered finance at JP Morgan where he worked for seven years. Since then for more than two and a half decades he has been running his own hedge fund. During his financial career, his main focus has been on finding and understanding collective human behavioral patterns that comprise the study of human systems behavior. Including deep-seated ‘patterns’ in history and then using them to predict the future for geopolitics and markets in today’s turbulent times. He has a remarkable track record. David has written four books. Breaking the Code of History recognizes that post 9/11, the world changed in an instant. Using his theory's of human social structures he was able to successfully predict back in 2007 the key process in human social structures that have impacted today’s changing world, including the decline of America and the West and the rise of China, and the reality of climate change. His second book released in 2018 is Lions Led By Lions which examines Britain’s misunderstood involvement in the First World War and the achieved learning curve of its Army's leadership that resulted in a war-winning British Expeditionary Force rolling back the German Army in 1918. The story provides clear lessons that should be applied by today's leaders concerning the deterrence of global conflict. David's third book is a call to arms, in which his Now or Never UK Defense Review highlights the clear and present threats faced by Britain in the years and decade ahead from Russia and especially China, and the urgency for the need for large scale rearmament to secure the future peace. David's latest book Red Lightning which integrates fact and fiction and describes from a future perspective how China wins WW3 in 2025. It is a sober warning to the leaders of the Western World, that peace will only be maintained by a hard-won deterrence of aggression.

Katharine Gorka discusses her new book on the takeover of America by what she calls "NextGen" Marxism. The original and failed dystopian idea of communism has a taken on a new form of revolutionary strategy. One of her greatest concerns is the current weaponization of law enforcement for political purposes. She remains hopeful and her book suggests a 10-point action plan which includes taking action locally. People are much less afraid today and are speaking up, Americans aren't going to take this lying down.

John Bosnitch gives a wide-ranging discussion on the last days of the empire and new world order. Tyranny is rising in the West as the Military-Industrial-Complex continues to exert its power. He dives into deep politics and tells stories of his history of fighting the oligarchy, his personal interactions with Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, and who he thinks the controllers are. He is optimistic WW3 can be averted, but the defense industry uses the constant threat of war to keep the money flowing. Russia has bounced back from the brink.

Nick Corbishley discusses the most important issue of our day: the deployment of digital identity programs which by their own admission can "open up" or "close off" the digital and analog world to individuals. The EU is at the forefront of introducing Digital ID and helping other regions around the world do the same. Brussels insists they will be voluntary yet countries like Greece are already making them mandatory. We're talking about a new social contract in which the public has ever decreasing influence over their own lives. The EU is actively anti-democratic in its very essence, which is how it was designed. Multipolarity is a nice idea, but these governments are much further along the road toward killing cash and launching CBDCs. The U.S. and NATO are positioning in Latin America via countries like Argentina to keep regional powerhouses like Brazil in check. Location will be important for surviving the Digital Dictatorship, however, there is some hope because of the hubris and incompetence of the elite.

Jobst Landgrebe explains why Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) will NEVER be possible and why Skynet won't become self-aware! We have used up most of the great inventions in the application of physics and there is a limit to progress, we are faced with a slowdown in technological advancement. The human mind is a complex system and CANNOT be mathematically modeled. The singularity is a neo-pagan pseudo-religious concept. Technology has become the god or metaphysics or new religion of today. He discusses the realistic potential of artificial intelligence and automation.

James Bovard discusses his new book on the death of liberty in America. The U.S. government has become an oppressive force which steals upwards of hundreds of millions of dollars annually from its citizens through civil asset forfeiture, silences Americans through its Orwellian Ministry of Truth, and imposes burdensome security theater (e.g. TSA) among many other forms of tyranny. He describes the attempts to take guns away and whether he thinks they will succeed, this idea of a second civil war, and how people were stampeded into submission on Covid. There is no substitute for courage and self-reliance is part of that. The death of liberty in America is not foreordained.

Alex Krainer discusses the state of the global economy and how inflation is rapidly destroying wealth. The dollar will be slow to grind down over many years. He thinks CBDCs are too technically complicated to implement. The move now toward world war is the most important subject everyone should be laser-focused on. We are in the midst of a social engineering process pushing us into war against Russia as has happened before in history. There are many flashpoints that can be triggered. The West is desperate and can launch an "arson attack" anywhere. The East understands this and so far has been good in not giving the West a trigger for World War Three. The U.S. is the central battle for the future of humanity.

About Alex Krainer
Alex Krainer (born in 1970) is an author and former hedge fund manager based in Monaco. Alex was born and raised in a socialist regime of former Yugoslavia, under one-party communist rule. As a 17-year old he joined a student exchange program and spent a year in California.

Extending his stay, he took up his university studies there, ultimately transferring to Switzerland where he completed a degree in Business and Economics. From Switzerland his path led him to Venezuela where he lived for a year and experienced his first banking crisis when 9 of Venezuela’s 16 largest banks failed and brought the country’s economy to a grinding halt.

He returned to Croatia and joined the military where he served through 1995 during the last phases of Croatia’s war of independence. Soon after finishing his military service, Alex took employment at an oil trading company in Monaco.

By the year 2000 he became the firm’s risk manager and originated the firm’s research and development program in market analysis and application of neural networks and artificial intelligence in trading of financial and commodities markets.

By 2007 Alex launched his own investment management business and was among the small minority of managers who generated positive investment returns (+27%) through the 2008 financial crisis. Over the following six years, his fund outperformed the Dow Jones Credit Suisse index of Blue Chip commodities trading funds.

This opened the door into the big league asset managers and in 2011 Alex Joined Lee Robinson’s Altana Wealth with the mandate of managing the firm’s inflation hedging strategy. In more recent years, Alex also busied himself as an author. In 2015 he published his first book titled, “Mastering Uncertainty in Commodities Trading.”

Having discovered a passion for writing and stumbling upon the story of Bill Browder and the Magnitsky Act, Alex wrote his second book, unrelated to trading. “The Killing of William Browder” attempts to deconstruct Bill Browder’s narrative, which has played an important role in the conflict between Russia and the west – a needless conflict that could escalate towards a hot war.

While the future remains to be written, Alex’s endeavors will remain devoted to contributing towards a future endowed with peace, cooperation among nations, prosperity and emancipation of all humanity.

Financial consultant Tim Pickles discusses the connection between climate, energy, Covid, and the globalized financial system. We live in a false hyper-reality and narrative which is serving to buy us time before an inevitable collapse because we have found the borders and reached the limits of the system. The foundations for our civilization and system are built on sand. Living standards are going to decline. It's possible the elites want a revolution from below as a type of controlled demolition and reset of the system. We may experience a financial lockdown. The digital revolution could provide some solutions.

Shane Simonsen discusses the energy crisis and how industrialization was built on the resource base of cheap coal and oil whose quality and quantity is depleting which will affect the complexity of modern society and exacerbate economic and political issues. The elites are dealing with a changing resource base they're struggling to manage and they have a lot less power than we imagine. The real power lays with global multinational corporations who have co-opted nations and political parties. The loss of modern conveniences should see us move back to a more community-oriented setting. We're headed into an era of techno-authoritarianism but at some point that technology will fail. The real trouble is when elites start turning on each other. The future of warfare and society could be biotechnological.

About Dr. Shane Simonsen
Shane Simonsen grew up in subtropical Australia as a biology obsessed nerdling, consorting with blue tongue lizards, breeding mantis shrimps and molesting octopi when he wasn’t cultivating rare succulents and carnivorous plants.

He trained as a research biochemist, then made just enough money to retire before middle age to his experimental farm. There he works hard to develop novel and orphan crops that rely on zero inputs, including domesticating a staple tree crop from the Jurassic. He blogs regularly on this work at Zero Input Agriculture on Substack (or see older Zero Input Agriculture posts here) and will write a book about it someday.

Apart from farming he finds time to imagine the distant post-industrial future, creating fictional worlds that could quite possibly come to exist (though hopefully with less heart-slicing drama). His style of hard science fiction relies on extensive research into real research.

Sci-fi fans are tired of apocalypses. Star-trek futures have slipped out of reach. That just means it’s time to imagine a future that’s both realistic and inspiring instead.
