I spent a couple of hours with my good friends Crypto Rich and Alexander Mercouris discussing all of the topics of the day. It’s always a fantastic time getting to chat with Alex and if he wasn’t so busy with The Duran (and it’s well-earned rise to prominence) I’d do it more often.
The war in Ukraine has proven itself to be the catalyst for the next phase of the Davos Crowd’s Great Reset and it has drawn stark battle lines all across the world. I remain fully unconvinced that they can pull off even half of what they intend and it means that as we move forward it it imperative that we remain flexible in our analysis of the bigger picture.
There will be head-scratching minor moves and statements which will seem to contradict the major events playing out and whose allegiances are where. But remember, politics is a very dirty game and diplo-speak a particularly difficult language to learn to speak.
Alex is one of the very best at it. And I recommend anyone persuaded by cynics like those I debated with Matt Ehret recently, spend a lot more time listening to him than them.

Listening to hour #2 now. I saw that story about Union Pacific and CF Industries fertilizer yesterday. Boggles the mind. Blaming Putin isn’t going to work for them IMHO. Which leads me to my next conclusion; they aren’t terribly concerned about the mid term elections.
that has been my worry too and no one seems to talk about it
Damn…..forgot to click the new post box.
Total podcast porn! Love it. Great insights– Can you guys do this weekly and for 3 hours a pop?
Putin needs to break Davos totally and completely. For all of humanity’s sake. This is existential for all of us, not just the Russians.
I think that this might explain why Union Pacific is restricting fertilizer shipments. It would seem that Vanguard and Black Rock are with Davos.
If you watch this and if it is accurate seems to me Blackrock and Vanguard own just about majority share in everything. They are the right hand of the multi national corps which feed Davos. This presentation is put together very well. There’s some really good Docs behind this site. I have never verified their claims but it all seems to roll up to Black Rock which is owned by Vanguard (private). Rumor is it’s the old money Euro families very much as Tom has described who have most control. Saw this video about 9 months ago I think.
Tom, you can never be accused of not being genuinely passionate.
There’s still a tendency to refer to the general population of Europe (or probably anywhere else in the world, though Europe is the worst example) as if there is any kind of collective wisdom there, or any amount of courage among the population. This allows for the continuing criticism of Davos as if it is the core of the problem. Defeat Davos, and the problem is solved. Nonsense. The problem is the people of Europe, and always has been. I’ll give the example of Spain, probably the worst example but it’s only a matter of degree. I live there so I can attest to the example. Spain was the only country with an OUTDOOR mask mandate until February of 2022. The outdoor mandate went away and the vast majority still wore the mask outdoors…many still driving around by themselves with a mask on. Finally, as of tomorrow, Spain is lifting the INDOOR mask mandate. Care to guess how many will still be wearing the mask indoors tomorrow as well? Tom thinks referring to the average person as a sheep is not productive. How else would you refer to such things?? Which way would be “productive” in referring to worthless pieces of shit like this? You want to have a dialogue with these animals? What’s that going to accomplish? Bad enough they are cowards with the inability to think for themselves, these are the disgusting garbage who think their fear should be your fear, which makes life difficult for those of us that just want to be left alone in peace. Maybe this probable mass extinction isn’t such a bad thing. Maybe it will be like the Middle Ages, when it took a bacteria wiping out 30% of the population because that moronic population refused to stop wallowing in their own shit. After that die off, the Renaissance happened.
The sheepeople have been systematically brainwashed for several generations and are easily led to slaughter. Sad but true. And just like Plato’s cave they have no idea what reality is really like and would fight against seeing the truth. Every human being must accept the consequences of their own ignorance. However, we must still have compassion for them and work towards showing them what reality is by eliminating the shadow makers who are the cause of their delusions and let them come forward into the light.
The Davos elite and their backers must be eliminated for they represent an existential risk to all humanity both on the physical and spiritual plane.
I think of them as Purple Hearts – people damaged in a psychological war.
And that’s how I treat them – victims of an attack on their minds.
And of course while that means having sympathy and not contempt, it also means not turning your back on them for a moment.
I can assure you that the people you want to have compassion for wouldn’t hesitate to turn you into the state, just like the “good” Germans did to jews in nazi Germany. Remember, folks like us were inflicted with the same indoctrination as everyone else in society, yet we resisted and knew it was evil. However, the people “still in the cave” didn’t resist and refused to see the evil for what it is. Why? Because they lack empathy, not just critical thinking. It is dangerous to show mercy to sociopaths. Nothing good can come of it.
Great point about compassion being needed Rod. Could not agree more.
In response to your response…..if we all lose our humanity and compassion for one another then we guarantee a living hell for all and life won’t be worth living.
The Davos elite will need to pay for their crimes against humanity without mercy. Their victims still deserve compassion regardless of their ignorance.
Your can have compassion for them, you even should have compassion for them if you are Christian, but never forget that THEY are the real danger to people like us.
Because of their submission to any authority, they will accept any normality which means they will collaborate, even if we and our families were sent to reeducation camps.
Normie does what is norm. Norms are enforced by people in power. So solution to all society problems is anti communist power.
We must become the new Davos. Nice town btw, only inhabitants are braindead zombies. Maybe because of this Klaus choose this town for his forum.
That’s the catch 22 and ethical dilemma for any true champion of individual liberty. The vast majority of people aren’t able to think for themselves and in addition they have no moral center. They must be told what to think and how to act from a perceived authority above themselves. The psychopaths who have been the societal elite since the beginning of human civilization take advantage of this fact. Education isn’t the answer. The vast majority must be told what to do and forced to act in a certain way…but that’s anathema to a lover of liberty. And how exactly can a centralized system of promoting individual liberty be set up and operated? Central planning doesn’t work due to lack of information, lack of incentives, inefficiency and laziness. There is no real way to change things. Apparently, humanity evolved in exactly the way that was best in the environment, as disgusting as it is for the tiny percentage of us with a mind and with empathy. Perhaps in thousands of years, evolution will take the average human brain in a different direction. Here’s a good book if you want to consider the origin of this dilemma and how it might change in the distant future — The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, by Julian Jaynes. It helped me a great deal with many “why” questions.
On this podcast, you had said that Lincoln was a tyrant and destroyed the United States so that it could be rebuilt up again, making an equivalence between him and these Davos assholes. I have to question this and was wondering if you could clarify. Because, wasn’t Lincoln acting in the same capacity as Putin is today? Couldn’t you make a comparison between the Southern slaveholding class, and their minions such as the KKK and the rabid pro slavery forces with their hatred of Blacks in the 1860’s and the Azov Battalion and their hatred of Russians today? Wasn’t Lincoln, by going into the Confederate states to restore the Union, acting similar to Putin when he tries to restore the Donbas from these Ukranian thugs today? I don’t understand it. How was Lincoln a tyrant? Couldn’t you imagine Azov Ukranians in some future date complaining about a “War of Russian aggression?” once their oppression of ethnic Russians has been put down? I don’t understand how you could see Lincoln as being on the wrong side of history with this.
Tom is right. Lincoln was a tyrant. Read acurate history, the real history of Lincoln, not the cream cheese, “he’s SO GREAT!,” indoctrination version we were all fed while falling asleep during history class.
UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, Lincoln was not allowed to send federal troops into the south, without congressional approval, but he did anyway. Forget the fact that, the SOUTH, the confederacy, was its own “soverign entity, ” complete with Jefferson Davis as their ELECTED President. Lincoln ignored that obvious fact, and technically, “invaded.” Yes, invaded would be the correct word.
The south chose to succeed from the Union, and did so. Lincoln was intent on FORCING them back into the Union. Lord forbid that the Brits recognized the south as a legit entity. How could one stop that from happening? Lincoln started the civil war, Lincoln did, by HIS ACTIONS, not the South as Pearson History Text books would have you believe.
The current situation with Putin and Ukraine is NOTHING like what Lincoln did as President. Not even close. Ya can’t compare apples to celery, but I guess one could try.
Obviously I can only speak for myself here, but Lincoln was closer to Schwab and his vile lieutenants than not. Why? Because, just like the monstrous world economic forum cabal, old Abe arrogated to himself the right to play God while being entirely inadequate to the task. In practical terms, assigning oneself the power to decide the fate of millions of people, or even attempting to do so, is based on the delusional view that, somehow, one is worthy and capable of making judgements that will effect so many of one’s fellow humans and echo down through history long after one is gone.
Ultimately holding such a view is driven by narcissism, because no individual has the ability to even come close to the kind of kaleidoscopic view necessary to understand, let alone weigh the merits of the first and second order effects that will evolve for many generations to comes as a direct consequence of their woeful decision.
And, make no mistake, despite the revisionist history about the land, Lincoln did not embark on what was up to then the bloodiest kill the village to save it campaign in history for the purpose of ending slavery. He did it to “Save The Union” For Lincoln The Emancipation Proclamation was simply a tactic, albeit one of the more important ones employed as part of the larger strategy to sunder the Confederacy, which, again, was ultimately necessary in order to restore The Union.
Lincoln was the absolute worst, which is why he is the most revered by U.S. historians, who themselves are petty tyrants at heart living vicariously through the monsters of history. No different than Hitler, Stalin, Mao or any other tyrant whose aim is to “preserve the Union”, “launch a Great Leap Forward”, “save the Homeland”, “ensure Social Security”, “create a Great Society”, or whatever claptrap spews forth from their sewers. Arguably the best U.S. president was that guy that died a month after inauguration from pneumonia.
I liked the use of the term “The Samson Option”- I think that’s exactly what the Davosians are doing, using their proxies (patsies, enemies and imbeciles) in the West and East to do it.
I think of it merely as a controlled demolition of the existing order, with their enemies and disposable hirelings named and blamed, and buried under the rubble and ashes.
From which the Davosians intend the Great Reset will emerge like a phoenix.
According to Snider, Pozsar’s Bretton Woods 3 and the commodity based reserve currency is a non-starter. Any comments? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChSlwyl4vQA
We will soon find out from the polls, perhaps, how this live debate between Le Pen & Macron is perceived. The polling Zemmour/Le Pen was peculiar. Originally it was Zemmour at 18% and Le Pen at 14%. Several of Le Pen’s key party members jumped ship to Zemmour. The force really was with Zemmour. Then Zemmour simply slipped towards 14% and Le Pen floated up towards 20%. Of course by the time the first round came, Zemmour voters, following the polling, were flipping to make their vote count….I was never in any doubt that Macron feared debating Zemmour, and watching him debate Marine Le Pen it is obvious why. Macron is exceedingly arrogant and condescending. It is probably construed publicly as a strong performance. Personally I find him quite repulsive. He today stated in print that people who don’t take the vaccine are the new tyranny.
Europe’s future looks very bleak on all fronts.
Mikhail Borisovich is a very intelligent, well-spoken man. His viewpoint seems quite knowledge-based according to his own personal history as well as his position in the former Russia oligarchy. I could not help but compare his speaking style; i.e. without a lot of “uhhs” and “you knows” that we see so much in American discourse. How Americans, even the very so-called “well educated”, speak is quite indicative of the gradually, continuing failure of how schools from kindergarten all the way to universities.
