A Must-Watch Interview with Col Douglas MacGregor

Ever since Gail and I “cut the cable,” we’ve become devotees of the many alternative news sources that are found on YouTube, Rumble, Odysee and the like.  Mainly because you won’t find actual news on the cable news networks anymore –even FOX.   (Especially FOX.)

We also find many alternative sites which highlight interesting people, like Jordan Peterson, Glenn Greenwald, Sharyl Attkison, Andy Ngo and whoever else is on Tim Pool’s show that day.

As for the podcasters themselves, rarely a day goes by that I don’t listen to the Duran Boys, Taylor Marshall, Judge Napolitano, Styxhexenhammer, Razorfist, The Officer Tatum, and a host of others.   

For those of us who are Orthodox Christians, there’s a wealth of talent in the podcasting community:  one of the biggest is Jay Dyer, who waxes eloquently on many different subjects, whether they be philosophical, spiritual or  cultural.

Recently, he interviewed Colonel Douglas MacGregor, a decorated combat veteran, prolific author, and a nominee for National Security Advisor for President Donald Trump.  (Macgregor led a contingent of 49 fighting vehicles in “the last great tank battle of the 20th century” during the first Gulf War without suffering any casualties.)

MacGregor, for those of you who may not know, is one of the most prolific and knowledgeable commentators on the present Ukrainian crisis, appearing on The Greyzone, Judging Freedom, Garland Nixon and the Duran (among others). From Day One, he has given a contrarian opinion on this conflict, one starkly at odds with the rah-rah cheerleading that passes for journalism in the Western countries.

It’s usually at this point that I ask you, the readers, to take the time to watch an embedded video.  Not today.  Today, I urge you to watch this exchange between Messrs Dyer and MacGregor in its entirety.  It’s that good and it will clarify issues in ways that you will not get from the mainstream media.  You won’t regret it.

It’s titled, “The Great Reset, Russia, Ukraine & Western Geopolitical Strategies.”  Here it is:




  1. George Michalopulos says

    How bad is the informational black hole that grips the Western populaces?

    Check out this snippet from Larry Johnson:

    “One final observation. Europe is being kept in the dark in terms of honest information about the situation in Ukraine. One of my friends, a retired US Naval officer, recently visited Paris and reported that getting any legit information about the progress of the war in Ukraine is very difficult. The populace is still being inundated with propaganda. Yet, the economic chaos is real and palpable. At some point, reality will compel authorities to dispense with the propaganda and try to figure out how to placate angry workers amid a contracting economy.”

    • Most people in the UK get their news from the BBC.
      Sensible discussion with them is almost impossible.
      But *when the facts change*, the story will change;
      though it will doubtless still be as big a lie as ever…

  2. I cut the cable long ago. Waste of time.

  3. Anonymous II says

    If I could excerpt these I would, but here’s a link to several videos that provide a bit more context and, frankly, encouragement that we’re not crazy: FBI Director, DHS Secretary Grilled On Tech Censorship Collusion, Targeting Everyday Americans As Terrorists

    See: https://www.infowars.com/posts/videos-fbi-director-dhs-secretary-grilled-on-tech-censorship-collusion-targeting-everyday-americans-as-terrorists/

  4. About 25 minutes in, the colonel makes a point I have made almost from the beginning of the conflict which is that, in the long run, this is going to drive Germany into the Russian/Eurasian sphere. Economics, rather than the will of DC lunatics, will be the driving factor in this. You can’t really undo NSI and NSII, even through sabotage. You’d have to eradicate the entire pipeline structure and the ideas as they have unfolded in order to do with that. It’s like turning back history. Germans need Russian energy, but Russians do not need the German market given China, India et al. It’s that simple.

  5. I believe the substance of this interview more than amply demonstrates why a red wave by itself, apart from true repentance of our national arrogance, would have accomplished little, emotionally satisfying though it might have been.

  6. George Michalopulos says

    I should add this quality about this interview as well: both Dyer and MacGregor tie in all of the cultural, religious as well as geopolitical aspects of the crisis as well, in a seamless and inarguable manner.

  7. Fr. James Bernstein says

    Terrific interview. Thank you George. God bless your ministry.

  8. George and Gail, I thoroughly enjoyed every moment listening to this on my commute home just now. Thank you so much for sharing! Numerous excellent points for reflection.

  9. I’m getting the impression that Medvedev may be in the running again for successor to Putin, whenever he decides to step back. He has a national security adviser position and is working on military industrial production. Though he was not the pit bull many had hoped for in his prior service as president, lately he has become very vocal as a nationalist critic of the West.

    • I understand he has offered to send some
      anti-missile defence systems to Poland
      to protect against attack from Ukraine.

      A friend in need is a friend indeed…

  10. I came across this a few days ago while looking for something to listen to while running errands. Really interesting, reflects my own understanding (such as it is), but with a lot more detail brushed in, especially historical events. I appreciate his objectivity and down to earth non-conspiratorial attitude (though Jay tried to draw him into it, or so it seemed to me), while acknowledging real issues.

    It was also the first thing I’ve listened to in a while that gave me a glimmer of hope, if hope is the right word, in that corrupt, power-seeking systems do eventually fall, and this one eventually will, too. But the prospect of the chaos that comes with a fall – he mentioned the French Revolution and recent chaos in Sri Lanka – isn’t attractive. And infuriating that the Pelosi’s of this world will wind up on their luxurious private islands or estates with the wealth they stole from us.

    On a positive note, Colorado Rep Lauren Boebert managed to hang onto her seat in the House. It wasn’t looking good for her for several days, so this is very good news. Hard to believe the Colorado Western slope, a VERY conservative area, would vote for her opponent. I conclude the Dems weren’t able to muster enough fraudulent votes to overcome the actual red wave there, though they tried.

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Trump said Pelosi was on her way out of the country. She may not be headed to her luxurious private islands or estates. She and her crew tried to overthrow this country. She may be on her way to destinations unknown.

    • George Michalopulos says

      Seriously, the fact that she almost lost in such a conservative district shows the amount of cheating that went on.

      • She almost lost a relatively safe seat because she alienated and embarrassed her constituents. She isn’t entitled to the seat just because it’s in a conservative district.

        Of course, MAGAists are now going to reemphasize their definition of cheating to mean ‘the legitimate will of the people voting against our candidates’. I want to really encourage them to double and triple down on that for 2024, the ‘normies’ just love it.

        • Gail Sheppard says

          I think the whole MAGA thing is taking a backseat the standpoint that it’s not just about Trump or his supporters anymore. There is now an huge patriot movement going on against old cronies in both the Democrat and Republican parties. In many cases they’re indistinguishable.

          • I try never to respond or react to the left. Let them pound sand. There is no other plausible explanation for what happened and no honest person can avoid it. The left fits truth into ideology. Factual reality is irrelevant to them. The ideological patterns are what is real.

            But you are right, Gail. It is quite beyond Trump now. The fiascos in Pennsylvania and Arizona have created a broader Patriot movement opposed to both party establishments. Really, the old GOP is not much better than the Dems. What you could see is an alternative two party system emerging within the GOP as the Dems recede into being a party of black pervs. But given time the base will oust the old GOP too. We’re heading for a dominant party system with the Patriot Party (having taken over the GOP) being the sun party with one or more moon parties which can’t muster enough support to hold national offices.

            It will take time, but that is the writing on the wall. It is the wave that originates in Russia (the Dems are right about that, just wrong about “collusion”) and has been spreading across Europe. The grass roots are tired of the elite and are finding new champions. The left had an opportunity to try and take advantage of this in the Democratic Party, but they failed. That is the story of the Sanders phenomenon. They put the kebosh on that and folded it in to Liberal Elite, Inc.

            All the revolutionary action in America is now on the right. Hence the DOJ/Garland, etc.

            Antifa/BLM were just the Liberal’s brown shirts during the Trump Administration. If he returns, so will they, unless they are decisively broken. And he will probably do that since he will have nothing left to lose.

            • Gail Sheppard says

              I think when we can get beyond the two party system it will help to resolve the divide between the American people. For example, if someone says, “I hate Trump,” we can say “Fine, you hate Trump. But there are other things I think we can agree on.”

        • George Michalopulos says

          Nate, can you not see the possibility of Boebert be cheated by the Democrats?

          Consider: when Trump was put back on Twitter, within 12 hours, he got 81 million followers. Biden on the other hand has 34 million followers.

          In 2020, Trump got 74 million votes.

          And that brings us to Arizona: Katy Dobbs, the AZ SecState, who is responsible for counting the votes, is –surprise!–winning. If this doesn’t stink to high heaven, nothing does.

      • Exactly

  11. Great talk, thanks so much for posting it!! Listened to it on a long drive this morning.
    If only our American political leaders embraced the wisdom of the good retired Colonel and of Jay Dyer.

    They sum it up well: our modern American political leadership mirrors Napoleon before his fall…. starting wars everywhere else for fear that another country somewhere in the world may at some point may eclipse the United States in strength or dominance. And in the process, these foreign boondoggles weaken America by the hour.

    May God save us from the secular atheist neocons and globalists who govern us!!! And may God give us strength to stay strong during this process so we can be here to rebuild our country in the aftermath.

    The retired Colonel is correct…. when America’s current government collapses, our leadership will simply get in their limousines and drive away. Imbeciles.

  12. Some very disturbing news from Alexander.


    • SBU starts searches in UOC eparchies

      ‘ On 22 November 2022, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) is conducting “counterintelligence measures” against the UOC in the Rivne Region, reports glavcom.ua.

      Law enforcers came to the Koretskyy Monastery and the Convent of the Volyn icon of the Mother of God in the village of Sernyki in the Zarichne district.

      They also searched the premises of the Sarny-Polissia Eparchy.

      The report said that all the “actions” were carried out as part of the SBU’s systemic work to counteract explosive activities of the Russian special services in Ukraine.

      As earlier reported, the SBU started searches in the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra. ‘

      I suspect it is all part of the SBU’s work
      to annoy and harass the UOC…

  13. From conservatives, much talk, generally, against globalization, in favor of multipolarization. But why then is Klaus Schwab in favor of multipolarization, too?

    Watch Schwab say it himself at around the 1:59 mark.


    What could this this mean?

    • Gail Sheppard says

      Thank you for this.

      What he’s saying is what he’s been saying for years. Business, with shareholders, should align itself with government and they should run the world. No more government by the people and for the people. The people don’t matter.

      • George Michalopulos says

        Honest Abe must be rolling in his grave.

        I can guarantee you that he didn’t spill the blood of hundreds of thousands of Americans so that America so that this nation would lose its sovereignty.

    • Paleface speak with forked tongue:
      “You will own nothing and you will be happy”.

      To Schwab and the WEF, governments will be little local councils,
      whose cabinets (à la Trudeau) will be WEF “Young Global Leaders”.

      • George Michalopulos says

        My understanding of “localization” as Schwab sees it would be different from you and I mean when we say “localization.”

        Case in point: The abominable behemoth that is the EU started out as a free-trade zone between six Central European nations known as the Common Market. That’s all: just a free-trade zone. It then metastasized to the totalitarian abomination that is today.

        • The behemoth was intended from the beginning of
          the European Coal and Steel Community in 1950.

          Schuman declaration May 1950:
          ‘ Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity. …

          By pooling basic production and by instituting a new High Authority, whose decisions will bind France, Germany and other member countries, this proposal will lead to the realization of the first concrete foundation of a European federation …

          The common High Authority entrusted with the management of the scheme will be composed of independent persons appointed by the governments, giving equal representation. A chairman will be chosen by common agreement between the governments. The Authority’s decisions will be enforceable in France, Germany and other member countries. … ‘

          That is the bare bones of it:
          Power in the hands of the political class,
          not in those of the Constituent Assembly.
          All the rest is mere detail…

          • George Michalopulos says

            That’s the problem with Classic Liberals (i.e. Friedmanite free-traders, libertarians and assorted anarcho-capitalists) like myself: we actually think that laissez faire free trade can work. And that nefarious cabals such as what you describe are incapable of completely executing their plans.

            My bad.

            P.S. Thanks for setting the record straight.
