A COUP appears to be underway in Russia as we record this program. Yevgheny Prigozhin, head of the Wagner Group, is leading an armed force of 25,000 mercenaries toward Moscow. His convoy has reportedly been fired on by Russian helicopters and artillery.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin addressed his nation Friday, calling the armed rebellion a “stab in the back,’ promising to punish Prigozhin. However, this plays out, it’s the biggest threat to Putin’s power since he first became president twenty years ago.
This story is changing rapidly and may be obsolete by the time this episode is uploaded. As of 10:30 AM CDT (UTC -6), Wagner vehicles are reportedly just six hours from Moscow.
We discuss the difficulty in knowing what’s going on in Ukraine, how the sudden turmoil in Russia may affect the war, and how the delivery of tactical nuclear weapons to Putin’s ally, Alexander Lukashenko, in neighboring Belarus may change the dynamics on the battlefield. There is a danger that rogue military units in eastern Europe end up in possession of nuclear weapons.
In short, the situation bears a lot of disturbing parallels to things in that part of the world a century ago—the time of World War 1.
We also discuss the undercover video released by James O’Keefe this week of a recruiter from BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, going on at length about how the war in Ukraine is great for business. It’s a timely bombshell, since the only winners in war are the bankers.
Also: While the world watches Ukraine, another 700 Christians killed by Muslims in Nigeria; erasing history to set up the New World Order; AI is spying on you; and the United Nations plan to roll out a digital ID tied to individuals’ bank accounts.
