    Kees Van Der Pijl: The Virus Crisis is a Fraud & Cover for a Global Political Seizure of Power

    Kees Van Der Pijl: The Virus Crisis is a Fraud & Cover for a Global Political Seizure of Power

    Professor Kees van der Pijl discusses his new book which explains how the virus crisis is a fraud and cover for political seizure of power. The medical emergency is just a pretext for digital identity passport systems. He discusses the players behind this ruling oligarchy whose concentration is unprecedented in history. Elites are using a strategy of tension to subjugate an otherwise unruly global populace which has been on the verge of 1848-style revolution. The medical phase of the coup can turn toward war (e.g. Russia) as another means of consolidating rule. The ruling class believes they have a small window of time to cement their power on the heels of the historic AI revolution. He explains the mechanisms by which the oligarchy is able to impose worldwide regulatory processes on entire continents and how China is cooperating in this 'ultra-imperialism' with the West. He's optimistic that the political project that is Covid can't go on for much longer, will fall apart, and that they do not yet possess the technology required to roll out a total digital control system. A core group of society is also increasingly rejecting their insane vision of the future.

    Paul Craig Roberts: It May Well Be the End of the World

    Paul Craig Roberts: It May Well Be the End of the World

    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts discusses US-Russia tensions and corona tyranny. He doesn't see how events in Kazakhstan could've been anything else but an attempted color revolution. While prior U.S. administrations in the 20th century worked to defuse tensions with Russia, Washington today is removing safeguards, not taking security talks seriously, and is expanding NATO and military installations. Russians feel they are threatened and are taking actions to ensure their security. These developments are extremely discouraging. At the start of the pandemic, he had no reason to question the CDC and NIH. However, over time he began to see holes in the narrative. He fears many people will be injured as a result of mass experimental vaccination and we may see social collapse. He believes there must be some sort of conspiracy and can't fathom the level of global coordination going on. The lockdowns have created inflation which has created serious problems for the U.S. dollar. We don't know what else they may release. There's a tremendous amount of evil at play. If things don't clear up this year, it may very well be the end of the world.

    Luca Anceschi: Kazakhstan Will Move Closer to Russia & Eurasian Integration

    Luca Anceschi: Kazakhstan Will Move Closer to Russia & Eurasian Integration

    Professor Luca Anceschi discusses recent events in Kazakhstan. We will never know if it was a revolution because the violence that ensued stopped the natural organic evolution of the protest movement into something that could have changed the political system. It's been a good week for Putin and a watershed moment for Kazakh-Russia relations. We're going to see a structural change where multi-vectorism will become a thing of the past, as Nursultan moves closer to Moscow and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which Putin views as an instrument of geopolitical domination. He believes what occurred was a result of a domestic coup or elite rivalry situation, as in the past it was discovered President Tokayev's phone was being surveilled using Pegasus spyware. We discuss Nazarbayev's cult of personality, what consequences there might be for the region, and the road ahead.

    Paolo Sorbello: Kazakhstan Protests Sparked by Inequality, Inflation, & Lack of Representation

    Paolo Sorbello: Kazakhstan Protests Sparked by Inequality, Inflation, & Lack of Representation

    Journalist and researcher Paolo Sorbello gives his take on events in Kazakhstan. He says that what is going on has a lot to do with inequality and lack of representation, with inflation and fuel prices being the prime mover. He comments on the effects of the pandemic which have led to millions of unemployed. The scale of the peaceful protests was unprecedented and he believes it is not yet possible to determine the source of the violent protests. He points out the conflicting narratives of the government itself, that of an internal coup and foreign intervention. His response to accusations of "Color Revolution" is "which color is it"? He argues that protestors did not handle the weapons well and that the government put down the violence quickly, which suggests that there wasn't an organized domestic or external group, although it was strange that authorities allowed violent protestors to move into areas that should have been cordoned off. He thinks Nazarbayev and Tokayev are too wise to provoke such urban violence and believes the status quo will continue. Concerning the future of Kazakhstan, he fears freedoms will be targeted.

    Denis Rancourt: COVID19 is a War Measure for Population Control in Shadow of US-China Conflict

    Denis Rancourt: COVID19 is a War Measure for Population Control in Shadow of US-China Conflict

    Scientist Denis Rancourt returns to discuss his new paper which demonstrates that a pandemic did not occur. Whereas in some countries there was little to no excess mortality, in others like the USA, the 1 million excess deaths can be attributed directly to the government health measures and pandemic-response policies. He sees no evidence for a virulent respiratory disease. The U.S. is decoupling from China with whom it is in an economic war. As a result, there's going to be huge inflation which will wipe out the savings of ordinary people. He sees "COVID19" as being war measures applied to completely control domestic populations in the shadow of the U.S.-China geopolitical and geoeconomic conflict that will last at least a decade and even risk hot war. A totalitarian system is being put into place to get rid of democracy, and it has the potential to last a really long time. All countries must apply these measures in the context of this global war to ensure stability against unrest among their own populations. He thinks Western elites want an e-currency that will take over the world and gobble up any completing digital currencies, and which also cannot be circumvented. We also discuss resistance and non-compliance.

    About Hrvoje Morić

    From 2017-2021 Hrvoje was a Global Perspectives teacher at the Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Semey, Kazakhstan.



    In 2017, under the auspices of Sharon Tennison’s “Center for Citizen Initiatives” and together with 30 other American “citizen diplomats,” he visited Russia for three weeks and met with academics, businessmen, citizens and politicians including former president Mikhail Gorbachev to discuss US-Russia relations with the hope of bringing the Russian people’s desire for peace to the attention of U.S. citizens and policy makers in Washington.



    From 2010-2017 he had worked as a Secondary Humanities teacher and adjunct professor of International Relations at the Tecnológico de Monterrey in México.



    From 2008-2009 he obtained a Master of International Relations from the Geneva School of Diplomacy in Switzerland, where he also worked as a staff assistant with the Mission of the Czech Republic to the United Nations. From 2006-2007 he served as a volunteer with Peace Corps in Mongolia, albeit with voluntary early termination due to him being a bit of a listless wistful youth. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in History and Secondary Education from Northeastern Illinois University in the United States.



    Born in the U.S.A., bred between the two worlds of America and Yugoslavia/Croatia, and naturalized a Mexican, he is a proud citizen of all three nations!
