Computer guru-turned-fugitive John McAfee, now a ripe and still robust 74, appears on the Tin Foil Hat show with Sam Tripoli to discuss the coronavirus, his new bitcoin Ghost and his life on the run. Chased out of the Dominican Republic, he first fled to the Bahamas and then Cuba, but recently has settled in another undisclosed location.
The mortality risks of the coronavirus, he believes, have been greatly exaggerated. If there are great famines, dislocations or depressions that follow, they will be caused by the widespread lockdowns and quarantines, which have been gross and excessive.
He refuses to debate the merits of Bill Gates’ proposed vaccine, saying he only met Gates once and didn’t spend much time with him, finding him to be “the most boring man I’ve ever been with.”
Asked if there is a secret society that runs the world, McAfee says not in an ordinary sense. For instance, he says television, the movies and music clearly influence our beliefs as well as our sense of morality. But politically, even the United States, which remains the most powerful nation, is heavily divided and fragmented. The CIA is probably the single most powerful and largely covert agency, he says. Its agents are so hardcore that some cynically refer to presidents as “transients.”
McAfee is scornful of the mainstream media. “If you believe a single news story that comes out of the media conglomerate, there’s no hope for you,” he says.
He rates Thai women the most sexually adventurous anywhere in the world. “If you have to ask the question, you’ve not been there,” he asserts.
The interview begins around the 9:45 mark. Watch the opening if you want to meet Tripoli and his sidekicks, but they waste at least 3 or 4 minutes plugging a shaving razor. There’s chatter about their sexual trysts, but they’re really just hawking the razor.
