Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.
#1780 – Maajid Nawaz (The Joe Rogan Experience) 19 Feb
Video podcast at The Joe Rogan Experience
Maajid Nawaz is a former Islamist turned counter-extremism activist, author of multiple books, and public speaker. I had seen Maajid on Sam Harris’ podcast before, but I was struck by his take on the current political-world climate in a recent Rogan podcast. I would recommend watching the entire presentation if you are unfamiliar with Maajid’s personal-history, but his comments about Chinese-Rule (watch from 2:49:00 in video) aligned so closely with my ‘Opinion Piece’ on December 26, 2021 – ‘We are now governed under Chinese-Rule‘ in particular how the World Economic Forum initiative The Great Reset has infiltrated leaders of Government and Multinationals. Below I will forward quote-excerpts from Maajid about this subject:
‘I believe our elite have come under the undue influence of Chinese Intelligence agencies….MI-5 (See BBC article 13th January, 2021) have warned about this….
(Regarding COVID policies) – Michael Singer who has written an extensive book on this tracing step by step..these influence operations; the way the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) have been encouraging a draconian response to COVID and all of the technocracy that will arise in the form of Check-point Charlie society and central banking digital currencies….with the agenda coming from other non-state actors such as the World Economic Forum and their teams penetrating cabinets across the world as Klaus Schwabb said…’
Their are some super interests here that exist above the nation-state working to define the future in a certain direction and that is to make sure that decentralisation doesn’t happen. The mother of centralisation is the CCP. So we at the crossroads; we can work towards decentralisation and people-power, local Governments, community, family and separation of powers or we move in the CCP direction…What we should be worried about is the idealogical country. Idealogies pedal soft-power and they influence minds with their agenda and they influence narratives. We in the West are not attuned with Idealogical warfare. ‘ (Watch entire video podcast here)
I don’t have a Netflix account, but my dear friend left her account on my Smart TV. I was browsing a documentary to watch and I came across 14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible. This is the story of Nepalese mountaineer Nimsdai Purja who embarked on a seemingly impossible quest to summit all 14 of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks in seven months. My kids and I were captivated by the cinematogrpahy, story and characters. I couldn’t recommend it more highly to those inspired by seemingly impossible human feats. Kudos to Netflix who produced Nims story when Hollywood and the big studios never had interest.
Coincidently, Nims was recently interviewed by Joe Rogan on his podcast which I also enjoyed seeing. He served in the British Army with the Brigade of Gurkhas followed by the Special Boat Service (SBS). There are tough cookies in the world, but I have seen few if any, that are as animated, tenacious, fit and resilient as Nims Purja. (Watch trailer here)
Making People Laugh (2010) – Full Show – Jimmy Carr
Concert video at Jimmy Carr
I recently saw an interview with Jimmy Carr on The Jordan Peterson podcast called ‘Carr on Comedy‘. I’m afraid to admit I hadn’t heard of this comedian before, so I looked him up and saw his show – Making People Laugh performed in Glasgow. I was impressed to say the least despite having quite picky tastes about comedy.
JBP podcast states: Jimmy Carr is an award-winning comedian, author, and TV host. Carr recently came under fire for the career-enders subsection in His Dark Material, a Netflix special that’s deemed “deeply offensive” or “faithful to its title,” depending on who you ask. Carr’s latest book, Before & Laughter, is part memoir, part life advice, and mostly funny. …..(Watch concert video here)
