    “When we say war, the first thing Dave Stilwell thinks of is my F-16 with bombs, kinetics, killing people and breaking their things. … That's not how the PRC thinks of war.” I sit down with retired Brigadier General David Stilwell. From 2011 to 2013, he served as the defense attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and was appointed assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific Affairs in 2019. “We want this to be a cooperative relationship like we have with other countries. … But after 40 years, you have to assume that this plan isn't working and we're going to have to change direction. And so the relationship is defined by the lowest common denominator, and that's the PRC approach, which, guess what, is a cold war. … It's ideological, and in fact, is existential.” Why is China engaging in dangerous aerial intercepts? What's fueling the Chinese regime's “zero-COVID” policy? And how is Beijing weaponizing our media and information systems against us?

    “The whole premise of the American legal system is that everyone—no matter how unpopular—deserves legal representation. John Adams famously defended the British soldiers accused of the Boston Massacre. And he said it was one of the greatest things he ever did for the fledgling Republic that he helped found. And that ethos is just not there to the same degree today.” Was the Supreme Court draft ruling leak indicative of a broader shift in America's legal institutions? I sit down with Aaron Sibarium, a writer for the Washington Free Beacon and the former opinion editor of Yale Daily News. He's been researching how law schools have been impacted by woke ideology. “Law schools have, for many years, been graduating the sorts of people who believe that long-standing legal norms perpetuate oppression and that we are justified in suspending them in order to solve various moral emergencies,” Sibarium says.

But this myopic focus on maximizing individual freedoms has also led to the decimation of the traditional family and national cohesion, he argues. Conservatism can't just be about conserving liberty and individual freedom, but rather needs to be grounded in other principles, such as religious faith and nationalism, he says.

    With the World Health Organization (WHO) set to discuss a global pandemic treaty and far-reaching amendments to the 2005 International Health Regulations, we sit down with Dr. David Bell, an expert in global health and infectious disease. “Even though it doesn't directly change sovereignty, in effect, it does. It takes away the ability of the people of that country to make their own decisions,” says Dr. Bell. And more importantly, these proposals will create a bureaucracy “whose existence is dependent on pandemics,” says Dr. Bell. “They'll have a very vested interest in finding outbreaks, declaring them potential pandemics, and then responding. It's the way that they will survive.” And it appears that they will make lockdowns “a permanent feature of pandemic responses,” Dr. Bell says. Dr. Bell is a public health physician. He has previously worked at the World Health Organization, as programme head for malaria and febrile diseases at the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) in Geneva, and as director of Global Health Technologies at the Intellectual Ventures Global Good Fund.

And there's no money being invested in trying to understand their disease and come up with ways to mitigate it,” says Dr. Malone. At the same time, the majority of people hospitalized for COVID-19 now are vaccinated individuals, says Dr. Robert Malone. “The more doses of these products that you receive, the higher your risk for infection, disease, and death, compared to those that remain ‘unvaccinated,'” says Dr. Malone—with of course, the key caveat that most who are “unvaccinated” probably have natural immunity.

    From rule of law to liberal democracy to the scientific method, “everything we think of as modernity is Western in origin,” says author and journalist Douglas Murray. “And the West has given them to the rest of the world not because they're racist, but because they work.” Murray's latest book is titled “The War on the West.” “It's a war on the West's history, its traditions. All of its philosophical and religious traditions are being torn down,” Murray says. And while many in the West engage in these “games of self-immolation,” the rest of the world is watching. “I suppose some people might think is strange, but I have this view that an American-led century is much more preferable to a Chinese Communist Party-led century.” Follow EpochTV on social media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EpochTVus Twitter: https://twitter.com/EpochTVus Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/EpochTV Gettr: https://gettr.com/user/epochtv Gab: https://gab.com/EpochTV Telegram: https://t.me/EpochTV

Previously, in part one of our interview, we discussed alarming post-booster trends he's seen and how usual protocols for identifying treatments were thrown out during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now in part two, we discuss how big pharmaceutical companies can make billions by essentially repackaging existing products. “Basically they took almost the exact same drug as Kaletra, dressed it up, they put a box around it, and they're selling it for what, [$]5 billion?” says Urso, referring to the Paxlovid COVID-19 pill. We also discuss Urso's work with other prominent doctors to create both a national telehealth system as well as an entirely new infrastructure of doctor-led medicine, where power is decentralized and less easily corrupted. “Once doctors became employees during this pandemic, it made them very reluctant to speak out,” Urso says.

    “People have taken in the feeling, the experience of being afraid all of the time. And so even if they're told that they can be safe now without the mask, they still want to wear them. They insist on wearing them.” I sit down with Dr. Mark McDonald, a psychiatrist and author of “United States of Fear: How America Fell Victim to a Mass Delusional Psychosis.” The pandemic of fear was worse than the COVID-19 pandemic itself, McDonald argues. The ones harmed the most are children. They were bombarded for two years by incessant messaging—from parents, teachers, peers, television, and beyond. Going to school became dangerous. Children were told to stay home, stay safe, and avoid any risk and danger to themselves or others. Many have internalized the fears of their parents, argues McDonald. This is despite studies showing that otherwise healthy children are at very low risk from COVID-19, and children are also significantly less likely to spread the virus than adults. “I don't know if these kids are going to grow up normally. I don't know if they're ever going to be able to challenge themselves and take risks when they're adults because they never did when they were younger.” Follow EpochTV on social media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EpochTVus Twitter: https://twitter.com/EpochTVus Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/EpochTV Gettr: https://gettr.com/user/epochtv Gab: https://gab.com/EpochTV Telegram: https://t.me/EpochTV

He's a physician, epidemiologist, public health policy expert, and one of the three co-authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, which argued for focused protection of the most vulnerable, instead of crippling nationwide lockdowns. Instead of protecting the elderly and immunocompromised—the people who faced exponentially higher rates of dying from COVID-19 than the young and healthy—lockdown policies protected the “laptop class,” the well-to-do, Dr. Bhattacharya said. Lockdowns would ultimately devastate the poor, in America and around the world. In South Asia alone, lockdown policies killed an estimated 228,000 young children in the first wave of the pandemic, according to a U.N. report. “This is the single biggest driver of inequality … in my lifetime,” says Dr. Bhattacharya.

    “If it turns out that Putin is able to take all of Ukraine or even a huge chunk of it and get away with it, the Chinese will take note,” says Grant Newsham, a retired U.S. Marine Colonel and Senior Fellow with the Center for Security Policy. “The Chinese are going to be emboldened to finally settle the Taiwan issue once and for all.” At the 2022 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), we sat down with Newsham to discuss the Russia-Ukraine war, Chinese psychological warfare, and the China-Russia alliance. To cripple Russia's war effort, sanctions “have to go after China as well,” argues Newsham. “If it's just Russia, China will back them up.” Follow EpochTV on social media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EpochTVus Twitter: https://twitter.com/EpochTVus Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/EpochTV Gettr: https://gettr.com/user/epochtv Gab: https://gab.com/EpochTV Telegram: https://t.me/EpochTV

    “[Putin's] goal is to break the back of NATO and to separate Europe from the United States, and in his mind, rebuild greater Mother Russia.” At the 2022 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), we sat down with former Trump deputy national security adviser KT McFarland, author of “Revolution: Trump, Washington, and ‘We the People.'” We discuss Russia's invasion of Ukraine, threats from communist China, and how the United States should counter Putin's ambitions. “Bankrupt him with energy prices. Number two, make sure he doesn't have access to the international banking system. And then number three, don't let American technology head to Moscow,” McFarland says.

    “This is a disaster … We didn't have to have this situation unfold,” says former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell. The Russian military has reached Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, with fighting and heavy bombing in the city, and Vladimir Putin has urged the Ukrainian army to overthrow their government. At the 2022 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, we sit down with Richard Grenell, former U.S. ambassador to Germany, to discuss how the Russian invasion could have been prevented, Germany's refusal to take a hard line on Russia, and how U.S. policies have fueled a Russia-China alliance.

    For decades, both Democrats and Republicans have argued that by opening trade with China, China would gradually become more like the West and adopt liberal, democratic values. But some knew better. I sit down with Congressman Chris Smith, a representative of New Jersey's 4th district. For the past four decades, he has been one of Congress's most vocal critics of the Chinese Communist Party, as well as the U.S. policies that enabled the regime's abuses—from forced organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners to genocide of the Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang. “They threaten everybody else, whether it be Taiwan in the short term, Japan, Korea, Philippines, and over time, the entire world.” Follow EpochTV on social media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/EpochTVus Twitter: https://twitter.com/EpochTVus Rumble: https://rumble.com/c/EpochTV Gettr: https://gettr.com/user/epochtv Gab: https://gab.com/EpochTV Telegram: https://t.me/EpochTV
