    About Jeremy Nell

    Cape Town (South Africa) is my home city, but my work has been published globally in multiple languages since 2005.



    I am married to a beautiful woman and we live in a leafy suburb with our dogs, cat, rabbit, and parrot who writes my material.



    t began, in 2019, as a way to have conversations with interesting guests about interesting ideas, no matter how taboo.



    Following a number of censorship attempts by YouTube and other thought police, my videos were migrated to a decentralised network using blockchain technology.



    As of May 2021, Jerm Warfare is my journey to understand the world as it really is; it’s an unsafe space for liberal dogma, corrupt power, and soulless modernity.



    It’s about good ideas fighting bad ideas.



    Humour included.

    Michael Parker: On 9/11, Why America is in a Controlled Collapse, & the Great Reset

    Michael Parker: On 9/11, Why America is in a Controlled Collapse, & the Great Reset

    Host and producer Michael Parker discusses the censorship of information, the media-state partnership, and woke culture. He talks about 9/11 and his work with Dylan Avery, who produced the first internet blockbuster "Loose Change: 9/11" and the upcoming "Unspeakable", for which Michael wrote music. He gives his view on where he thinks the United States is headed, why he thinks America is in "societal freefall" and a "controlled collapse", likely hyperinflation, the Afghanistan debacle, and war with China. We discuss the Great Reset and whether China is onboard or has turned on the elites.

    About Michael Parker

    Michael Parker is a host and producer of over 300 episodes of content related to the mysteries of human history, science, the occult, and so called conspiracy theory. His weekly internet television show ANTIDOTE for TheLip.tv, and radio shows like Dark Matter and The Electric Pyramid have established him as a leader in the discussion of controversial subjects like transhumanism, secret societies, alleged government conspiracies, the paranormal, mind control, ancient civilizations, true crime, and more. Currently he produces: https://hiddentruthshow.com



    Michael’s strength as a host /investigator is his ability to remain skeptical and open minded simultaneously while finding sometimes overlooked aspects of cases that bring out the unexpected. In 2014 while preparing for an interview with noted Area 51 researcher Norio Hayakawa, Michael discovered the existence of a heretofore unknown facility on the base called the MJ12 building, of course in reference to the infamous MJ12 documents. In 2013 Michael and co researcher Scott Deschaine conducted the first field studies on the Marfa Lights in Marfa, Texas as biological entities as opposed to light refractions or ufos.



    The early 2000s began with a opportunity for Michael to speak at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland as the guest of an NGO. His topic at the time was the rise of electronic media, it’s influence and the growing consolidation of media outlets. Only 1 month later the attacks of 911 would change his life forever and he became part of the growing antiwar and truth movement and would eventually work with creators of the documentary series “Loose Change” to provide content and promotional work for the film.



    In addition his his research into more tangible conspiracy subjects Michael’s work also led to more esoteric subjects and a voyage inward. He endured sweat lodge rituals, sensory deprivation in isolation tanks, psychoactive experimentation, seances and experiments in psychic phenomena... From 2004-2006 Michael tested, evaluated, and managed 100's of psychics, astrologers, and mediums for a private company based in Hollywood, California. He also continued his research into the ufo / ET hypothesis by spending 11 years as a member of MUFON The Mutual UFO Network.

    Jeremy Garlick: Belt & Road, CPEC, Pipe Dreams, & Geopolitical Realities

    Jeremy Garlick: Belt & Road, CPEC, Pipe Dreams, & Geopolitical Realities

    Professor Jeremy Garlick provides his informed analysis on China's Belt & Road (BRI) and why he believes it is the main game in town in terms of a coordinated strategy to transform global affairs given that the other contenders in the global ‘great game’ of the 21st century (US, EU, Russia, Japan, India) have not managed to present coherent visions of how the international order should develop. However, he does feel the initial vision of BRI has been blunted by a set of failings and badly planned projects. He also discusses the idea that BRI may have inadvertently been a response to Obama and Clinton's "Pivot to Asia". His discusses the Iran-China relationship, his forthcoming book on CPEC which he views as a main artery of the New Silk Road, what role Afghanistan might play, Chinese investment in Europe, and the Dragonbear alliance.

    Mark Leonard: U.S.-China Convergence as 'Mimetic Doubles' & the Age of Unpeace

    Mark Leonard: U.S.-China Convergence as 'Mimetic Doubles' & the Age of Unpeace

    ECFR Director Mark Leonard discusses his new book "Age of Unpeace" and why having an open, globalized, "one-world" of connectivity is actually the source of problems today and how issues that bring us together (e.g. internet, migration, economy, health, climate) are being weaponized and providing new platforms for countries to hurt each other. The three empires of connectivity (U.S., China, EU) will define the new global order which in turn will impact the "fourth world". He examines the U.S.-China relationship and how they are becoming 'mimetic doubles' of each other and converging, with the threat of the West becoming more like Beijing. He gives his thoughts on U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and reveals his "nightmare scenario" in the age of unpeace.

    Alex Krainer: Afghanistan Signals End of US Empire as China Turns on Elites & Great Reset

    Alex Krainer: Afghanistan Signals End of US Empire as China Turns on Elites & Great Reset

    Alex Krainer discusses how Afghanistan signals the American Empire's loss of hegemony over Mackinder's "World Island" and everywhere else (e.g. Ukraine, Syria, Iraq), the game is up. He believes that Beijing had initially been propped up by Western elites, but given the recent turn against China by George Soros and Co., the CCP mislead and is now abandoning the global elites. They have not forgotten the Century of Humiliation. The economic fallout of U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan could mean equity and bond bubbles bursting, upward pressure on commodity prices, and high rates of inflation in the American financial system. He believes the dollar world reserve status can shrink rapidly in the coming years. He discusses his recent accurate Bitcoin price prediction and why precious metals and commodities are poised for an explosive rally. Regarding COVID1984 and the Great Reset, he's optimistic in that Davos, like Icarus, is flying too close to the sun and ultimately will fail.

    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.



    With his plans and endeavours thwarted, 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, Alex took employment at an oil trading company in Monaco.



    By 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 AI 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.



    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.”



    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.

    Artyom Lukin: US-China Bipolarity, Russia as 2nd Tier Power, & Era of Closed Borders

    Artyom Lukin: US-China Bipolarity, Russia as 2nd Tier Power, & Era of Closed Borders

    IR scholar Artyom Lukin talks about Climate Change in Russia and how the decline of American hegemony has become a moot point as the real question is what will replace it. He believes we are entering a prolonged period of US-China bipolarity with Russia as a second tier power, and the potential for a multipolar world down the road. The difficulty in analyzing Beijing is that China is completely non-transparent to outside observers, a "black box". No one, including the Russians, really understands what China wants. He also discusses why he and others think the world has entered an era of isolationism, closed borders, and restricted travel triggered by the geopolitics of intensifying great-power rivalry. He also gives his thoughts on Vladimir Putin, North Korea, and what the near-future portends for the United States (e.g. civil war?).
