Registration link for today’s ‘Speakeasy’ zoom salon with special guest Monique Camarra — producer of EuroFile and co-host Kremlin File. August 27, 1:30 pm PT
REGISTRATION REMINDER — Last call to register for today’s ‘Speakeasy’ and to take advantage of the Mugshot Week special to join Bette Dangerous.
What’s happening: Geopolitical analyst Monique Camarra is a member of the Bette community and each time she joins us for our weekly Happy Hours, members have so many questions to ask her about Italy’s soft fascism and her daily reporting on the war in Ukraine that I felt it was important to bring her back for our ‘Speakeasy’ today, August 27, 1:30 pm California time.
Monique’s EuroFile substack is vital to keeping up with global developments on Putin’s war of annihilation in Ukraine. I read each one beginning to end and am grateful for the curating she does of reports from all corners.
In addition, I am honored to have featured her reporting from Italy in my American Monster — Steve Bannon report. She shows the Meloni-Bannon connection and how his influence is playing out on the global stage. The American Monster series spotlights US criminals who are accelerating global fascism. I have unlocked the entire series for the weekend for all readers, and if you appreciate my work, please share with your networks and please take advantage of our Mugshot Week Special of half-off for the first year — available through Sunday night. I can only offer these specials because of the generosity of my Founding Members — a group that continues to grow and who benefit from our new monthly Founder’s Day — which we kicked off with an epic hour from author Keir Giles, who wrote ‘Russia’s War On Everybody: And What It Means for You’.
Here is the Monster series unlocked. I apologize for the fugshot, but it’s important — the world can now see the criminal I have been reporting on since the mid-aughts:
If you are not yet a paid member of Bette Dangerous, just know that along with content, you are invited to weekly events where you have the opportunity to ask questions of some of the greatest minds of our times — among our ‘Speakeasy’ guests are Ruth Ben-Ghiat, David Pepper, Paul Mason, Craig Unger, Jeff Sharlet, and so many more.
Here is a bit more about our upcoming ‘Speakeasy’ guest Monique Camarra:
Geopolitical analyst Monique Camarra joins us from Siena, Italy. Her EuroFile substack is a clearing house for vital news from Europe and the war in Ukraine. The co-host of Kremlin File, Monique is passionate about fighting fascism and exposing those behind the fascist networks. She is living in Meloni’s Italy - what Ruth calls ‘soft fascism’ - and will describe what that means to our audience. She also reports on the granular details of the Ukraine war - the most important event happening the world, she says - and has insights into Putin’s propaganda and disinformation machine, and can share with us Berlusconi and Trump comparisons.
As a researcher/analyst hyper focused on Russian capture, influence and information warfare in Italy and Europe, and how it affects geopolitical and security issues (kinetic-non-kinetic warfare) on the old Continent, please take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions of another great global mind.
Along with being an instructor at the Department of Communication at the University of Siena and co-host of Kremlin File and EuroFile@6 podcasts, she is also one helluva cool lady.
I am very excited that Monique is returning.
