    Tim Ray: Resisting the New Normal World Order

    UI Media Network founder Tim Ray discusses the tyranny enveloping the globe, something he says he has been expecting for decades. He gives his take on the global elites, their machinations, and the courage required to resist them and the totalitarian policies they are attempting to implement. He fears a true catastrophic crisis may be just around the corner, which will be a catalyst for even more draconian restrictions. He talks about his struggles with censorship and why he thinks people have a hard time psychologically coming to terms with our dark reality. Finally, he shares some solutions.

    Gordon Hahn: The East-West WWIII Tinderbox & Authoritarian-ization of America

    Gordon Hahn: The East-West WWIII Tinderbox & Authoritarian-ization of America

    Gordon Hahn discusses what he calls the New East-West Cold War or Russia-West Tinderbox, which can potentially escalate into a WWIII scenario. He examines the key drivers between the Russia-West divide which is primarily EU/NATO expansion (e.g. Belarus, Ukraine, Donbass), a situation that will continue to fester and could explode at any moment unless it is resolved. He comments on China's rise as a global hegemon and believes Russia and China will make Afghan inroads as the U.S. withdraws and the Taliban likely come to power. Finally, he looks at the "authoritarian-ization" or "Putin-ization" of America, where neo-liberals, leftists, and big tech have melded with the military-industrial-complex and oligarchic globalists who are pushing the U.S. toward a one-party state. Beyond that, these forces are pushing for some form of transnational or world government.

    Jagganath Panda: "India First", Chinese Revisionism, & Power Politics in the Indo-Pacific

    Jagganath Panda: "India First", Chinese Revisionism, & Power Politics in the Indo-Pacific

    Dr. Jagganath Panda discusses the key drivers of geopolitics and power politics between India, Pakistan, and China in the Indo-Pacific. He comments on PM Modi's "India First" policies, Japan’s strategy, and the promises of the Quad or Quad Plus, which some have referred to as an Asian NATO. He covers Chinese ‘influence operations’, the threat of China's revisionist policies, and gives his take on how successful Belt & Road has been and whether the West’s ‘Blue Dot Network’ or ‘B3W’ is a viable competitor. Finally, he gives his thoughts on how bumpy the New Cold War with China might get militarily over the next decade.

    Alexandra Marshall: The Four Apocalypses of Corona, Climate, Cyber Pandemic, & War with China

    Alexandra Marshall: The Four Apocalypses of Corona, Climate, Cyber Pandemic, & War with China

    Alexandra Marshall discusses what she calls the three apocalypses as framed by the ruling elite: coronavirus pandemic, climate change, and a coming cyber pandemic or "digital darkness". "Climate Change" has been a hard sell and "is the only narrative capable of achieving massive state land grabs and control of global food production." "Apocalypse Politics" is a favorite tool of Davos and the ultimate goal is to "induce a permanent war economy within democratic nations onto which global treaties can be grafted to justify the antiquated socialist dream of a global bureaucracy." She feels the coming cyber attacks are really going to hurt and cause greater damage than the government pandemic policies and climate politics, but beyond that, she is even more worried of a fourth apocalypse, that of a geopolitical conflict and war with China.

    Terry Wolfe: From Covid Lockdowns to Climate Lockdowns

    Terry Wolfe: From Covid Lockdowns to Climate Lockdowns

    Terry Wolfe, whose video on "Climate Lockdowns" went viral on social media, discusses more of his thoughts and research behind his popular video and why he thinks The Powers That Be will now shift us from "Covid Lockdowns" into "Climate Lockdowns". He suggests that "Climate Lockdowns" are the threat or "stick" used to goad us into "The Great Reset" and "doing capitalism differently". Under "Climate Lockdowns" governments would limit private-vehicle use, ban consumption of red meat, impose "extreme" energy-saving or rationing measures, and halt the drilling of oil.

    Nikola Mikovic: The US-China-Russia-Turkey Tango from the Balkans to the Caucasus

    Nikola Mikovic: The US-China-Russia-Turkey Tango from the Balkans to the Caucasus

    Geopolitical analyst Nikola Mikovic covers a broad swath of geopolitical competition between the US, China, Russia, and Turkey from the EU and Balkans to MENA and the Caucasus. We cover the aftermath of the Nagorno-Karabakh War, recent elections in Armenia, Turkey's expanding influence, and how Ankara will continue to spar with Russia despite being frenemies. Nikola discusses great power politics in Syria and Libya as well as China's move into the Balkans. He gives his thoughts on the aftermath of the Biden-Putin Summit and why he thinks Russia has become a defeated country and a junior partner who continues having to make concessions and suffer humiliation on a daily basis. He also remarks on Donbass, Ukraine, and Belarus.

TheGoodEarthy ,

Wonderful podcast!

What a breath of fresh air! This podcast is a much needed voice in today’s weird world, which keeps getting weirder. Get a balanced perspective without the brainwashed agenda. If you’re looking for regurgitated propagandist drivel, then you should pass and go straight to cnn.

Insert_Nick_Here ,

Top tier trolling

This podcast has a tendency to platform actual mouthbreathers with nationalist and racist agendas.

Jodom95 ,

Much better alternatives are available

Most episodes are much too opinionated to be a useful in evaluating Geopolitics. Biased to the point you’re not getting anything of value unless you already agree with the host’s perspective already. Recommend Red-line, Foreign Exchanges, The Diplomat for an Asian centric pod or Popular Front (more journalism than analysis) which are leagues above G&E.
