Geopolitics in individual countries affect the world as a whole. Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), is back with us from Kiev, Ukraine, to discuss a variety of topics including the growing uprising in Belarus and the future of its disgraced and unpopular leader, Putin's plan for not only Belarus but also the future of Russia, and how China is jockeying for position in Eastern Europe while at home, the Chinese Communist Party and its leader are lessening in popularity.
First up this week, we have defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson (www.thebulwark.com), joining us from Kiev, Ukraine, where he examines the geopolitics of Russia and China, including Putin's new extended stay as Russian leader, the possible collapse economically of both countries, and how well Americans understand what's happening outside of the U.S.
We transition to Peter Vincent Pry (www.emptaskforcenhs.com), Executive Director of the EMP Task Force on National and Homeland Security. He looks at how little the U.S. has prepared against a possible EMP attack and how a power bloc of countries would compete for control if the U.S. were ever to militarily leave a region.
What is a paradigm shift and what does it look like when you're going through one? In this week's boralogue, John makes sense of all the chaos we're seeing today, explaining the different steps of the paradigm shift happening right now and how to survive it. We must retain the foundations America was built on once we've shifted or we're done as a free country.
We round out the program this week with John's analysis on logical fallacies, how best to spot them, and what you can do to refute them.
Defense and aerospace veteran Reuben Johnson, joins us from Kiev, Ukraine for a Russia geopolitics update. There was a recent referendum in Russia to allow Vladimir Putin to serve more terms than he is constitutionally allowed. Many of the country's rules on voting were violated, ensuring the outcome that was wanted but causing some protests in the Eastern region of the country.
Mr. Johnson goes into a variety of topics including the possibility of not only Russia collapsing, but also China – and how it would happen, the corruption of officials and policies in Russia, and how well Americans understand what's happening outside of the U.S.
