Expatriate American writer-photographer Linh Dinh fled Vietnam shortly before the first big lockdown and spent the rest of the scamdemic flitting from country to country, one step ahead of the brain police. Laos…Cairo…Alexandria…Aswan…Tirana…Cape Town…Klos….Swakopmund…Rehoboth…Windhoek…these are just some of the places Linh has immortalized in his “Postcards from the End of [the] America[n Empire]” (pictures here and articles here).

Now that he’s back in a time zone compatible with my live radio show, it’s time for Linh to resume his duties as the Roving Global Correspondent for Truth Jihad Radio. In this interview we discuss some of the many manifestations of mass formation psychosis around COVID and Ukraine, and debate whether the alternative media cup is half-full or half-empty.

  1. Great to hear from mister Dinh, I appreciated his take on my neighborhood(South Africa and Namibia) and I agreed with his views on the mRNA vaccine and NWO curse on mankind.

  2. Does this mean Linh and Ron Unz are best buddies again?

  3. I really wish Linh Dinh would mend his fences with Ron. It pains me to see the bile he spits about him on his substack when he was one of the most prolific contributors here for a long time. He got a little spun out for whatever reason and really started having negative interactions with commenters. Seemed to be taking it a bit too personally, and just got more and more out of control.

  4. Very interesting and enjoyable conversation. Perhaps the events in Ukraine are more than just generational tribal hatred, which it is at its roots. Are the Ukrainian nationalist the intended target, led by a pied piper of sorts, pulling the same script from ww2. Is this a dress rehearsal for the NWO’s enforcement arm, prepping for US patriots? Why is the US so blatant in its opposition to Russia trying to help agains the persecuted in Donbas and Crimea? Supporting a regime that is committing war crimes? How will History view these events? Time will tell, but I agree with Linh, that it will hasten the demise of the USA.

    Why mend fences? What would be the benefit? Dinh has gradually turned into a hysterical old woman who can’t stop flinging shit at everyone for increasingly paranoid reasons. His/her writing was nothing special even before he/she decided to use the Internet as a witness for his/hers ongoing nervous breakdown. I genuinely believe that Dinh is suffering from a serious case of mental/hormonal dysfunction.

    Ron Unz is not in the business of assembling a carnival troupe, as far as I know, so there’s no reason to inflict this poor creature on the readership, again. There are 7.7 billion people on this planet. Some of them can write, and even more are not dissolving into a puddle of tears and bile.

    Linh has been upset about Ron’s views on COVID. Ron highlights the evidence for its origin in a US bioattack on China and Iran while Linh is part of the larger group that sees masks, lockdowns, and “clot shot” mandates as pre-planned measures that have nothing to do with public health and everything to do with the Great Reset.

    I follow Ron’s precept that our main enemy is mainstream media, so we should focus on bashing MSM and its sacred cows rather than dissidents we disagree with.

    with all due respect, i listened to the interview, and that is a redacted oversimplification of Linh’s beef with the wizard of unz. linh states that he got tired of being called a gook, was generally sick of the lack of moderation of racist epithets (a point of etiquette), and believed that unz is happy to cultivate racial free for alls, particularly if they make ‘whites’ look like ignorant goons. he was also unhappy with unz’s behind the curtain moderation of comments, while he disingenuously played free speech white knight. lastly, he said that unz made it clear to him that he should think about moving on. if i missed anything, let me know.

  9. MrMann says:

    Linh lied. Some readers simply disagreed with him or dared to offer criticism at which point he lost the plot and started hurling much heavier insults with reckless abandon. Even then, I haven’t seen a single commenter reciprocate with the same level of venom. Maybe they were censored but I hope not because the guy was certainly unmuzzled. Most people eventually ended up telling him to snap out of it and remove his head from his ass with various levels of politeness.

    Anyway, doesn’t he have his own, fully controlled, corner on the Net? What’s the problem? In theory, given time, he might even get some visitors who’ll be happy to just offer emotional hand-jobs for free. The Net is huge so even those 0.01% extremes of every human spectrum (disorder) number in millions.

    Personally, I’m glad that the censorious gang (Revusky, Reed and Dinh) is gone. Thin-skinned weaklings who like to dish it out but can’t even handle criticism should stick to their own, heavily moderated micro-blogs. They were also the only authors on this website who dared to consistently sockpuppet in the comment section. It came natural to them to abuse the functionality they hated.

  14. @Kevin Barrett

    Try reading Linh.
    He calls Ron a plant toeing the zion line. He believes Ron allows too many n words and too many Asian slurs. He believes Ron baits “pussy whites” and racists to secretly denigrate Whites. He got pissed over Ron not allowing him to police his comment section, a power he enjoys on substack. Try debating him over there, he immediately bans you. He’s bragging he’s up to 900 readers. Fuck him.
    For you to claim their beef is over covid is disingenuous at best.

    i seem to remember commenters making racist comments to dinh. i don’t think he lied about that. whether or not he should take it like a man is another question. and criticism of his writing style seems like revisionist history. he is clearly one of the better writers here, based on style alone. he’s certainly head and shoulders above the sophomoric anglin. i read mostly for content now in my advanced years, about 95/5 in favor of nonfiction over fiction. probably my loss, and probably a consequence of falling for too many payola reviews of really shitty modern english language fiction. i dumped all of my american fiction into the library donation bin a long time ago, with a few exceptions like hawthorne and melville. even if bellows is a good writer, his writing just reeks so badly of off putting ethnic narcissism. roth is even worse.

    Greetings to Mr Linh! So refreshing to hear a person speak truth and common sense. I live in South Africa, and I can only nod and agree with what I hear.
    And thanks to Mr Unz, we can read and hear this, which is fantastic,
    I am now just waiting for Unz to wake up and speak truth about covid.
    But as Karl May (?) said: It is easier to fool people, than to convince them they have been fooled.

    And he is spot on there.

  24. Nobody is perfect.

    I like Lihn Dihn for his wit, sound sense, and passionate delivery, and Kevin Barrett for his skepticism and prudence, to name just a few qualities of each.

    Ron Unz allows these discussions to take place here – even when he doesn’t agree; and that is a great and noble thing, in my opinion. So I am skeptical of Lihn Dihns claims to the contrary.

    OTOH, I consider the scientific establishment, taken as a whole, to be woefully dishonest, at best. I can see why people view the vaccines with extreme distrust. And if people personally know someone who is less healthy after having taken one, well… that is hard to argue against, even if there may conceivably be other causes for the loss of health (health is very dependent on mentality, for example – we can literally think ourselves to both health and sickness).

    But again, nobody is perfect. And these things are complicted matters! Knowledge is best approached in humility… Even if/when we are right, we cannot expect everybody to see it right away, and it really is better if dissidents don’t come into conflict with each other. There is trouble enough without us creating more of it.

    All the best!

  28. Iris says:

    Groan. You mean Ron thinks he highlights the evidence…..etc etc


    Ron Unz’ s argument of US foreknowledge of the COVID pandemic is actually a very strong one, even more so that such “prediction” was made so astonishingly shortly before the Wuhan actual outbreak. It is one thing to make forecasts, but another altogether to make such extremely short-term accurate ones.

    After the US military denied having foreknowledge of the pandemic, they were grassed up by their Israeli counterparts, who provided the additional information that major NATO allies had been forewarned to.

    Only the above can explain the following. When pentathlete Elodie Clouvel inadvertently revealed on a radio broadcast that a large number of athletes within her Wuhan military sports delegation had caught COVID already in October 2019, 20 days before the first identified Chinese patient, the French Ministry of Defence immediately shut down the athletes and ordered no retrospective antibody testing to be made.
    Now why would that be, do you think? What could justify such a senseless, anti-scientific, incomprehensible and even criminal lack of medical curiosity?,8875244.php

    The only possible answer to banning antibody testing is that the French high military command already knew it was COVID that our athletes caught and they were trying to hide it. Because as NATO member, they had been briefed in advance by the US and were part of the COVID “fore-knowledgeable” party; they were trying to hide a glaring evidence that if Covid had had such early presence within a group of Western travellers, then it wasn’t so likely that it originated in China.

  29. I agree that Vanity Fair article was a new and different thing. It wasn’t so much positive coverage but maybe more like not 100.0% pure negativity.

    Women at a right wing meetup in Manhattan seems dubious. Vanity Fair would consider it crass to clarify that they were actual bio women with vaginas who menstruate.

  30. I somewhat miss Linh’s columns although he was showing tendencies to being angry at a lot of people and a lot of things. For example, he seemed to have a stick up his butt about people who were thinking and/or saying that South Africa was a dangerous place to be. So Linh happened, as near as I can tell, to be staying in a kind of a white enclave area and that was enough for him to scold everyone else and name call them. Yet no one was saying that white South Africans don’t still live in South Africa.

    But that was just one of the many things that Linh started getting upset about. And he really didn’t appreciate the comments. Whether they be constructive criticism, different opinions, or outright hostility, these inconsequential comments and commeters seemed to really upset Linh.

    I mean given Linh’s life story over the past 6 years or so, I understand he got a raw deal (and this includes that problem he encountered with his wife’s family in Saigon), but I found Linh’s sudden thin-skin attitude a problem.

    Much of this interview is more of the same. Am I the only one who prefers Linh’s writings when they are about the locale, 911 false flag, Zionism, Holocaust challenges? Leave the other stuff aside, Linh.

    I’m not interested in doing substack just now so I’ll let Linh go now, catching up with him occasionally.

    Meanwhile, if you’re reading this Kevin Barrett, I was reading some of the other comments and noticed that you intend checking in with Mary Maxwell.

    Thanks for the reference to Wilson’s “Poetry and Mysticism.” See page 75 of the City Lights Books edition (1969) for an uncanny prediction:

    “Human beings of the late 20th century will be born into a forbidding world: a civilisation that is immense, aloof, heartless and highly mechanised. Men of genius will find it a frightening world, for it will look so impersonal and vast that there will seem no room for individuality. Roads to the top will be well marked, but they will involve a discouraging amount of specialisation, of adjustment to the demands of mass-organisation. And since men of genius naturally hate to conform, it seems likely that the present tendency to negative revolt will increase, as they fire off blasts of loathing at the clock-work octopus that holds them fast. This will only make things worse, for nothing destroys the will quicker than the conviction that there is no point in willing. It looks like a vicious circle; there seems every reason to assume that human beings have chosen a self-destructive route to dominance and things are bound to get worse, until the whole miserable chaos explodes and we plunge back into a relaxing barbarism.”

    Right, why would Dinh try to get back on board writing for the Unz Review? The main issue — his clarion call — for him these past couple years have been the ludicrous lockdowns, destruction of small businesses (deemed “unessential”), the dangers of the experimental vaccine and of course the digital ID coming to us by way of China.

    But according to Dinh, Unz pushed him out for pressing concern about vaccines. However, if Ron Unz is friends is Antony Bourla (CEO of Phizer) and the rest of that White Coat Mafia, that could go long to explain it.

    In any case Unz Revew can be seen as corral when some like minded people may share some thoughts but NOTHING ever gets done, and they are being watched very closely.

    – “NOTHING” is supposed to get done here – except “sharing some thoughts”. I have no idea what else you’re expecting from a webzine.

    – People can be “closely watched” in their natural habitat. The only nefarious reason to go through the trouble of erecting another Internet watering hole would be to shape their opinions but that obviously doesn’t work here.

Plus it could never have been a “rogue element” as Unz claims when all the American mainstream media and government apparatus, and WHO and central banks, joined in on advancing the medical dictatorship.

    It’s not important the Linh isn’t capable of articulating to you with sufficient technical proficiency that the Manned Moon Landing was a hoax.

    The only important thing is that it was indeed a hoax. If you haven’t worked that out yet then you haven’t objectively researched the matter.

    You can start by reading the Unz Review articles on the matter, and making sure you read the comments below each article.
    There is a ton of evidence posted by the knowledgeable commentariat to back it up – even more so than in the articles themselves.

    Antibody test for Covid19 in October 2019? Would that also not be considered evidence of foreknowledge?

    Elodie Clouvel made her declaration on a radio broadcast in May 2020; please note it wasn’t just her affirming she got COVID in Oct 2019, but the military doctor who treated the entire French delegation and got several similar patients.

    By May 2020, antibody testing was available, and the research for COVID’s epidemiological pattern, doubling time and the likes, was the world’s Nr1 hot topic. So simply and plainly banning retrospective antibody testing of these earliest patients is astonishing and really speaks for itself as for the underlying motives: provide a cover to the real culprits behind COVID.

    Pfizer CEO Bourla?

    Big Pharma’s involvement in the US’ biological wars is now a public fact. The Russian military have made official statements about their findings and specifically the involvement of Pfizer, Moderna, Merck and Gilead in these felonious activities in Ukraine. Since Russia’s is openly discussing her findings at the UN Security Council, with no Western MSM reporting about it, her claims are most likely true.

    It is interesting to note that all four Pharma companies involved in criminal bio-research in Ukraine are American or Israeli; it reflects the real hierarchy of control, power and secrecy. I guess those Pharma CEO have knowledge of what is going on, but will not boast about it for obvious reasons.

    The 20+ Ukraine bio-labs also prove that engineering global pandemics is the brainchild of the entire US-Zionist imperial structure, since this research was extremely systemic, and not just some “rogue” elements.

    See this astonishing article about how migrant birds had been utilised to create epidemics:

    But accusing “rogue” elements for the COVID planned outbreak can be read differently. It actually avoids pointing the finger at the official US government, which was the Trump administration at the time. Mr Trump may be an obnoxious character, but I also think he was completely innocent of COVID, which in part cost him his re-election. Don’t you think so?

    His position on the Moon landing only shows that Linh Dinh is actually way, way smarter and more courageous than most technically-trained people.

    The “Moon Landing” is a hoax because today, in 2022, we still haven’t managed to overcome three majors technological obstacles to repeat such a miraculous NAS “exploit”:

    – 1) Build rocket engines powerful enough to carry the payload required to go and come back from the Moon in a single trip.
    -2) Protect larger, human-bearing spacecraft from burning when submitted to the Second Space Velocity (11.2 km / s) upon their return from the moon. We can currently only do so for smaller space probes.
    -3) Protect astronauts from deadly space radiations, including form mandatory crossing of the Van Allen Belts around the Earth.

    The Moon Landing Hoax does not stand basic common sense scrutiny, let alone engineering. If a manned trip to the Moon remains impossible in 2022, then it could never have been achieved in 1969, over 50 decades ago.

    As for 3. The astronauts were shielded, skirted the VA Belts. They were also in space a relatively short time. Compared to some astronauts that have been in space over a year. Again, not exactly the same experience. But you’ve hardly shown what the Apollo astronauts did was impossible.

    We did not have, and still don’t have in 2022, the rocket engine capable of lifting the 46 tons payload that NASA’s allegedly delivered on each of its Apollo missions.
    NASA’s Saturn V engine that allegedly accomplished this feat has been shoved into museums in the 70’s, and NASA now utilises Soviet rocket engine technology for all its missions, without exception

    2) There is also no comparison to be made between heat-isolation for a small, compact, unmanned vessel, and that required for a larger human-bearing aircraft.

    This is a photo of the last probe returned from the Moon in 2020, the China-made Chang’e 5 return capsule. Observe how small it is, and how badly burnt it has been from re-entering atmosphere at second space velocity. No even one human beings can fit in it, let alone survive, and if they had, they’d been roasted on coming back.

    The astronauts were shielded, skirted the VA Belts. They were also in space a relatively short time. Compared to some astronauts that have been in space over a year.

    3) There is no way to “skirt” the VA Belts. The astronauts who spend months in the International Space Station are only at 200 miles from the Earth, while the Moon is located 238,855 miles, over 1000 times farther away. So going to the ISS and putting up with its conditions is nothing like going to the Moon.

    Space radiation is a big concern for the ISS, even though much of the solar cosmic radiation is deflected by the Earth’s magnetic field, which, fortunately, is above low Earth orbit (LEO) where the ISS is in orbit.

    On the contrary, an astronaut in theory stepping up on the Moon could receive a lethal dose of radiations in just a couple of hours during a solar flare. So there was no luck, no “skirting the VA belts” miracle. Just NASA lies and Stanley Kubrick’s cinematographic skills.

    We are getting deep into the weeds here–but Van Allen’s letter was accurate based on the data that NASA provided him.

    The problem is–NASA lied about the actual radiation numbers–which of course was trivial to do since they had no actual astronauts going through the belts.

    This article goes into more detail:

    When you assume your conclusion it will always be correct!

  55. One more important article on the Van Allen belt question:

    This is a very hot topic for current proposed manned missions today–no fakery and scamming allowed–they must get it right.
