Brandon J. Weichert was our speaker at the Thursday, September 14, 2023 member meeting. He covered a wide range of topics, including:
- The education deficit in the U.S. and how it will compromise our competitiveness over the coming decades.
- China’s industrial threat. He compared today’s China to the rise of the U.S. in the 1800’s from backwater nation to manufacturing powerhouse. China should not be underestimated.
- Water Wars. Water shortages are a very long term threat, but will have huge consequences.
- The BRICS countries.
A very interesting and informative talk.
Brandon J. Weichert is a geopolitical analyst who manages The Weichert Report: World News Done Right and lives by Herman Kahn’s credo “I’m against fashionable thinking.”
A favorite on the military lecture circuit, Weichert often serves as a Subject Matter Expert for the Defense Department where he talks about space warfare strategies and overall technology policy.
Weichert is the author of the 2020 book, “Winning Space: How America Remains a Superpower” (Republic Book Publishers) which trended as the #1 Military Policy book on Amazon for several months after its release. Dennis Prager described Winning Space as a “Truly important book.” Weichert authored the 2023 #1 Amazon Bestseller “Biohacked: China’s Race to Control Life” (Encounter Books), which Steven K. Bannon says “cracked the code” on China’s master plans for global domination. In July 2023, Weichert’s third book “The Shadow War: Iran’s Quest for Supremacy” (Republic Book Publishers) was released. Daniel Pipes calls it an “ambitious book that explains how to avoid World War III.”
Weichert travels the country speaking to various audiences on geotechnology matters and has been described as a “panic-and-anxiety-producing scholar in the tradition of Herman Kahn: telling us what we do not want to hear but need to know about the gathering dangers imperiling our freedom and prosperity.”
Weichert’s work has been featured in The Washington Times, Real Clear Politics, National Review, and The Asia Times. He was previously a contributor at The American Spectator, where the late Rush Limbaugh praised his writing. Weichert also wrote for American Greatness, where his pieces on foreign and technology policy were widely distributed in the Trump Administration. In 2023, Weichert was made a Senior Editor at 19FortyFive.com.
