After discovery that he was alive, no one has posted a summary of what exactly happened to him. It's unclear with some saying he was captured, but no details. Can someone either summarize or point to the video/post where CRP explains it?

Also, the accusation that someone opened his iphone XR without his help is very weird. The FBI had trouble opening much older phones, and supposedly this was done by Ukranians in the field? I don't believe anything is unhackable but I also don't think it's such a fast/simple process unless he used a basic password like 1234.

That was almost ten years ago. Now they can do it easily especially with glow help.

Alternatively you just use the facial recognition unlock or beat/sleep deprive them until they crack and give you the passcode

Don't know if its been said already but both sides find dead bodies and then go through their photos on their phone.
But how do they break the phones encryption? They take the dead mans fingers and open the phone.

All you have to do is say to Gonzalo - open your phone. Thats it.

If he won't then they will be taking his fingerprints anyway.

Thereafter they change the access settings.

If there are higher levels to this stuff then Gonzalo never availed himself of it by his own admission.

Hold on, let me get this straight. Gonzalo is currently under house arrest by the Ukrainian secret police and he's calling out Zelensky for using Azov thugs to use innocent civilians as human shields? Calling out Zelensky for having a net worth over a billion dollars with homes in Florida and Italy? He can't possibly be under house arrest by anyone loyal to Zelensky. He certainly does not appear to be suicidal. Amazing that someone under this much stress that is apparently suffering from a terminal heart condition is even capable of putting out these videos which do appear to be closer to reality than anything on mainstream news. But it doesn't add up...and he's still on YouTube.

I'll refer you to my post from the previous page:

His pinned Tweet below is like an insurance policy, because if they kill him, it would instantly validate and amplify all the other SBU killings he's listed, which would be a big blow to the Ukies in the propaganda war, so that was a very smart move on his part. The guy doesn't do opsec, but he has his own craft and set of skills, openly blackmailing the Ukrainian regime with relative impunity, a pretty gutsy move on his part...

Basically the people in charge of the Karkhov SBU branch are very much aware that killing him, or even shutting him down, automatically validates and amplifies that list above, and severely undermines the whole Ukraine narrative, exposing the Zelensky regime as a glorified death squad dictatorship.

Lira has also had the support of the Chilean diplomatic corps. Russia is winning the PR war in Latin America, killing GL is not going to be helpful there.

Still, pretty brazen by Lira, the guy has a lot of guts.

As to Youtube, this is his second channel, not sure how long it's going to stay up.

I have thought the same. A cynic might suggest his 'disappearance' was a publicity stunt.

Aye, but he could easily become a 'casualty' of the war...i.e. they could claim he died in a bomb blast.

He's a middle aged Dartmouth grad with a business career behind him. As well Ukraine is one of the cheapest places in Europe, his Karkhov pad rents for something like $200-$300/mo.

Yeah, that's what I've pointed out earlier. As well if he's stated that he had heart issues, they could use that as cover as well. Unfortunately for him the Russians aren't going to conquer Karkhov before this summer, he's got to hold out for another couple of months.
 
I'm a bit confused here. Regardless of his "authenticity", how is his analysis? Good? Useful?

I think it's mostly good, so I still listen to him.

I guess the logic is, because he may be a charlatan, one should be wary of what he has to say. Well, sure - be wary of what he has to say, especially if he's selling you something.

Again, how good is his commentary and analysis? I don't have to emotionally attach myself to the guy to find his insight useful or not.

Most of his Ukraine analysis is very good to excellent. His piece on Nuland for example is as good an analysis of US Ukraine policy that you can find. Looks like the original has been yanked, here is a mirrored vid:


A lot of his social commentary is outstanding, like this masterpiece on the sociological and psychological forces shaping modern western leadership:


He does tend to fall short on his bread and butter CRP aspects related to relationships in that he is still mired in the manosphere framework, lacking the wisdom and guidance of Christian morals, though his background as a Chilean Catholic/cultural Catholic mitigates this somewhat, making him a lot better than your average manosphere pundit.

One area where he is too prone to hyperbole is in macroeconomics, although his main assumptions are mostly correct. He stated for example that the Ruble could directly challenge the US$ and become the global fiat currency, when the right take is that the Ruble is becoming one stable currency, much like the Swiss Franc, because it is backed by gold, oil&gas and other commodities, which makes it impervious to QE inflation.

That still seems like a huge risk on CRP's part to behave with such hostility to his "captors." I still haven't seen him explain his capture and current situation, and I'm suspicious of it all.

But as for the insurance policy?
The media would just refuse to ever mention the guy.
Sure, if he was killed, we would know everything he said was true. But I'd wager most of us believe it already, so what would that accomplish?

Julian Assange is locked away in prison being tortured and the masses don't know or care. Likewise, Edward Snowded revealed things that in past would kick off a revolution, but again, no one does anything. CRP is orders of magnitude less prominent. I hope the "captor" thing is just a hoax, because if not he is greatly overestimating his value as a hostage.

He gets it very wrong sometimes as well. A year ago he recommended everyone to swap dollars for euros. He clearly got hosed on that trade. Glad I didn't follow that advice.

His current advice of dollars bad euros worse rubles good seems solid. I wonder if his previous advice also seemed solid at the time.
Well that's not a prediction brother, all you need to do is to look at the chart of the DXY. He didn't predict that however when it would have mattered. And the ruble you can't buy anywhere. He did NOT predict the ruble would have bounced back so quickly either. I actually did and attempted to buy some a month ago but was unable to because of forex exchanges not allowing any ruble transactions.

All I'm saying is, don't follow financial advice from some Youtube on the Internet. His business is basically infotainment and accumulating a viewership. Not saying he has ill intentions but do your own research.

I recommend cross-referencing Armstrong against him. For example, Armstrong correctly predicted what would happen with the USD/EU spot rate. Both of them understand the issues in play (which, to be fair, anyone who is moderately well informed and not blinded by ideology can do), but Armstrong has a strong understanding of how capital flows behave that Lira lacks.

Best practice is normally geographic diversification. Right now the global economic good news seems to be Florida. Dubai also seems like a good bet because they've positioned themselves as the Switzerland of the 2020's (because, unlike Switzerland, they will leave your money safe there) and they're friendly towards recruiting the top European talent there. They're unlikely to be in the line of conflict for the same reason Switzerland wasn't: all of the elites across the globe have assets and real estate there, and nobody wants to see crap they own get bombed.

Dubai is not safe, they have a third world mentality when it comes to the vax for one thing. I'm not sure if you could have lived there the last two years without getting jabbed.

Also if there is a war with Iran, Dubai will collapse. All that Iran has to do is hit their desalination plants with a half dozen of their thousands deep missile arsenal. It's going to be a bad scene then, with the locals monopolizing water and the expats getting the scraps.

You shouldn't be overly scared of the economic situation if you take care of yourself, have a trade or position yourself in a recession-proof industry. Also if you're in a country like NZ, Aus, Canada, France or even the US, you're never going to run out of food, it's just that you will be paying 2 or 3 times as much for your steaks It is places like Egypt, Ethipia, Pakistan etc where there will be food riots.

The coming times are going to be proxy wars (as we see in Ukraine) and eventually that will set off a geographically limited (in terms of the whole world) hot war. As @911 states, places like Iran/Pakistan/India/Dubai are top candidates. What's curious right now is that China is clearly going through major turmoil at home and they require the US to sell goods to, otherwise they collapse in any event, which is an interesting paradox.
