What is the Project 2049 Institute? Ep. 211

It’s no secret that close relations with Taiwan are key to the United States’ policy of “extreme competition” with China. A main feature of this relationship has been the staggering amount of arms sales that US military contractors have made with the Taiwanese. Behind these deals stands the Project 2049 Institute. In this episode, we explore the 2049 Institute, its connections to neoconservatism, and the role that it plays in broader US/Taiwan/China relations, especially in facilitating the above-mentioned arms sales.

The Neocons’ ‘Very Heavy’ New Cold War Agenda ft. Robbie Martin Ep. 207

Robbie Martin of Media Roots Radio joins me to discuss his multi-part documentary “A Very Heavy Agenda.” Robbie recently released Part II for free on YouTube because it documents the Neoconservative revival of the early 2010s which led directly to the 2014 Maidan Coup and the current stand-off between NATO and Russia. Robbie and I also discuss the US’ new cold war with Russia and China, including certain suspicious narratives that libertarians are particularly prone to fall for.

Holy War? The Battle Over Orthodoxy in Ukraine Ep. 205

For western observers of the conflict in Ukraine, Orthodox Christianity is almost as foreign of a concept as the world of Islam was in the early 2000s. No understanding of the conflict in Ukraine is complete without a firm grasp of the underlying religious rivalry between Ukraine and Russia, which goes back 800 years. In 2018, this rivalry reached a boiling point when the Orthodox Church of Ukraine split from the Russian Orthodox Church. This split has been described as the biggest fissure in Orthodox Christianity in centuries. Did this split precipitate Russia’s 2022 attack? Is Putin waging a holy war for the soul of Russia? We explore in this week’s episode.

Holographic Apocalypse: Project Blue Beam Ep. 204

The threat of an alien invasion has been interwoven in the public consciousness for nearly a century. In the last few decades, many powerful and influential people *have* introduced the idea that an alien invasion or a religious apocalypse could be the only two things that could cause humanity to set aside its differences and band together as a species. Where does this idea come from and who is pushing it? If the above is true, could the powers that be *fake* that situation to seize power? In this week’s episode, we take a look at Project Blue Beam, a 1994 prophecy made by French-Canadian Journalist Serge Monast, which warned that the New World Order would seize power by faking either an alien invasion, or the second coming of Christ. Monast’s predictions were crazy, but now, famous UFO “expert” Dr. Steven Greer is pushing this very same idea. With his connections to the Rockefellers, the Clintons, and the US intelligence community, should Dr. Steven Greer be taken seriously? Why is he pushing this idea? This week, we investigate.
