Episode 322 – What Is Sustainable Development?

10/20/201752 Comments

We’ve all heard of “sustainable development,” but what does it actually mean? Is it really about protecting the earth, or is it just another tool for foisting an agenda of carbon eugenics and technocracy? Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we rip off the green mask of the oiligarchs and expose the 2030 Agenda for what it really is.

    Great episode! The information on land grabs going on in the US and abroad was very enlightening.

  2. wingsuitfreak says:

    I really enjoyed this episode. When you brought up the habitable zones, it reminded me of a NewsBud video in which they talked of the Pentagon already laying down plans on how to quell dissent (or wage outright war) upon the cities in Amerika. Luckily, I doubt there is any way for these governments to survive long enough to carry out their agendas. Here in the US, almost no one has any faith in government. I’m sure there are many other countries out there that share a similar faith in their overlords.

    Another disturbing indictment of the powers that are but shouldn’t be.
    As I have mentioned in other enlighting comments past,( can’t remember where? or care too) the Winthope Rockefeller corporation ( foundation) is deeply involved in these practices and maintains the detailed inventories of natural resources. Not only in the U.S. but world wide. The military, at least the parts that run the sophisticated satellites, is deeply involved in support of this agenda too. This is a stagerenly high bar to clear if Corbett is suggesting dismantling these psychopathic cartels. Yes,it must be done,but how? I have done all the sharing on this that I can and am now friendless, outcast and avoided. Sound familiar Tex? Cannot find anyone in Tulsa who can relate. Hell they think fluoride is an vitamin additive to our drinking water not that it has to do with monopolizing world natural resources. I asked the head of the Sierra Club here at a clean air and water membership drive “What is the position of the S.C. on high altitude radiation management or chemtrails?” she was clueless said” you’ll have to clue me in on that.” The 6 or 7 people there were all clue-less. So audios clickistas. The point is there is an invisible cloak over these insidious machinations and the closer they are to the core ( I think Corbett said’ linchpins’ ) of the creations of total control ( monopolies) the harder for us ( citizen Joe or Jane) to catch on to the sheep shearing that is coming. That may be the defining metric for the intelligence of our content-podcastor-creator. How to spot these evil self interested concoctions before they are so tightly embedded in the fabric of life that they cannot be removed. Mr Wood in the report above has such quialities. Oh Their crafty , ruthless and hardly play by the rules cause they are playing for ALL the chips. Keep up the brilliant work James Corbett. Can I send you some Tim Horton to keep you sharp as a tack? Just let me know , works on Okies as well as Canadians, really does! Might help perk up Texans in their tireless endeavors too. Lets brew up a cuppa and get this show on the road to corse corrections world wide.

      I know, I know. No one I know wants to believe any of this. To them, I’m just a crazy 67 year old kook. Maybe they’re correct?

      Great work James, I’m Corbett addicted.

        Well dog-gone cush350,

        My wife’s family is from Wichita Falls. Green.
        My wife is a tad bit older than you.

        Around 2003, I had a small satellite bookstore in that old “Apple Store” building not far from the Mall. I rented it on a month to month basis to help liquidate overstock from my Dallas-Ft Worth stores and warehouse.

        A lot of Texans are Corbetteers. There are so many I can’t keep track.
        Our North Texans for 9/11 Truth group has members from all over. You ought to join. Anyone, anywhere can join. https://www.meetup.com/9-11-249/

        generalbottlewasher is from Oklahoma. God made Oklahoma so Texans would have something to joke about.

      If we were to take our cues from the matrix, we may realize that in a realistic scenario the vast majority won’t be ever ready to leave comfy confines as laied out by their substitute parents and god; the state and their vehement excellency the president himself. And one day, surely, herself, as well.

      In my opinion, 10% is the absolute maximum we may ever expect. 3% being the more realistic expectation.

  4. Rooster_Ninja says:

    In the middle of taking my PDC (Permaculture Design Course) and the first day we talked about sustainable development (little s & d.) What was discussed was a need for regenerative development versus simply sustaining things.

    Once you get into it, you begin to realize how abundant our Earth really is, as long as you work with it; instead of war against it as we have been doing for some time now.

    Humans are an integral part of the system, not the virus that we have been portrayed as in MSM.

    Growing a garden is truly the most subversive act one can perform at this point in history, fun stuff get your hands dirty.

    This Alphabet City in Toronto looks like a template for a human technocratic island; one they can tour other city mayors around to enthrall and bedazzle:

    This all seems very “A Perfect Day – Ira Levin” to me.

    Thanks James, this latest series of yours is really connecting some dots for me! Cheers!

    James and friends,
    I’ll just leave this here, it is lengthly and through. Falls precisely in line with the esteemed James and James, and gives a historical perspective of the age old “divide and conquer” tactic. JFK to 911 Everything is a rich man’s trick.
    Peace, Lucretius.

  6. PeaceFroggs says:

    @ 5:48 it’s a commercial not a documentary James, and at the end of the commercial, she guides “the target audience” to go to the UN website to learn more, in detail. Sheesh.

    @ 9:27 “global plan, but it’s implemented locally” = none binding.

    @ 16:33 monopolizing resources is the key to understanding sustainable development?

    — First of all, eminent domain in the United States has been used since the late 1700’s to acquire property for public use. This isn’t new.

    — Secondly, nobody “owns” National Parks, they have been created to protect wild life habitat, no resource extraction is permitted on these lands, and they are accessible to the public for them to enjoy.

    @ 34:45 Resource grab, managed by them? @ 35:40 Massive amount of land “owned” by the Federal Government?

    — Executive Order 13406, states that the federal government must limit its use of taking private property to “public use” with “just compensation”. The order also limits this use by stating that it may not be used “for the purpose of advancing the economic interest of private parties to be given ownership or use of the property taken.” — Wikipedia.

    — If countries like Uganda had something similar to Executive Order 13406, maybe those 20 000 tribes men/women would not have been kicked out of the Uganda national forest in order to make way for corporations.

    @ 37:47 take the land out of production (land grab), which will then make the remaining land much more valuable?

    — Really? Wait a minute, I thought James said @ 16:33 that sustainable development is key to monopolizing resources for “their” exploitation alone? So which is it? For exploitation by the few, or protected land grab to make the remaining land (private property) more profitable?

    @ 58:46 This is about everyone everywhere, being rounded up and put in compact cities?

    — Ah man! I thought “they” wanted to kill billions of us (eugenics and stuff)? Now it’s they want to round us up and put us in compact cities?

    Seriously, I like James and I appreciate him allowing me to critize his work on this forum, and yes 9/11 was an inside job, Iraq and Afghanistan, Syria and Libya were all illegal wars, but please do your own research people.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      PeaceFrogs,
      Unfortunately, many times, your conclusions and evaluations are way off base.

      I assume that you have some “fixed preconceived concepts” which block your ability to grasp new information.
      And probably, very often, you don’t truly study the material which Corbett presents. Often your statements reflect that you are missing or omitting important information.

      Thus, often you come up with frog-brained evaluations which don’t hold water.

      Another FACTOR which all of mankind has…
      …An odd drive or impetus…
      There is an “unconscious mental mechanism” which basically strives to make the individual “right” or “correct”, while at the same time making others wrong.

      Sometimes people recognize this mechanism in others, but it is difficult to see within oneself.

      Blame, shaming others, denigrating others, trying to make others guilty, etc. are some ways this mechanism might manifest.

      EX – A kid says he did not do well on a test, because he has a bad teacher. It may be true that he has a bad teacher, but that is not the primary reason he did poorly on the text.

      Unfortunately, in the TRUTHER Movement, many times this mechanism gets dramatized with an attitude similar to…
      “You sheeple are wrong for not being aware.”
      The “truther” who always tries to shock or overwhelm the “normie” has this mechanism rolling in high gear.

      • PeaceFroggs says:

        HomeRemedySupply,

        It’s true that sometimes I do misconstrue what some of you are saying in your comments. Sometimes it’s because I’m pressed for time, sometimes it’s because some of you articulate your thoughts incoherently, but mostly it’s because in forums such as these, our comments are somewhat limited in time and space, therefore we engage in bit size comments, resulting in a sort of back and forth banter, so by the end of each thread, our views are usually we’ll understood.

        Furthermore, these discussion boards allow for a more respectable way of communication, so people can have their say without having other people interrupting or talking over one another.

        I find it interesting that ever since I admitted that sometimes I don’t understand peoples comments off hand, that some of you have now begun to use this against me, as if your reading comprehension is somehow infallible.

        Tell you what HomeRemedySupply, I left time stamps to all my arguments, thefore it should be super easy for you to debunk at least one of my arguments, thus not only will you prove me wrong but you will also substantiate your messiah for the entire corbett report community.

        • black sheep says:

          Hi frog.
          @ 37:47 and subsiquent time stamp and comments.
          If a resource is fractured and a great percentage is given to a few for their use exclusivly. The far greater numbers left fighting for the remainder will drive up value.

          • PeaceFroggs says:

            Hey Sheep,

            “greater numbers left fighting for the remainder will drive up value”

            — I wasn’t arguing the value, what I said was…

            @ 16:33 James said: that sustainable development is key to monopolizing resources for “their” exploitation alone.

            and then

            @ 37:47 his guest said: sustainable development isn’t about exploitation, instead it’s about making the remaining land, which is private property land, more profitable.

            So which is it?

            1)To exploit, or
            2)to make more profitable?

            I’ll answer.

            It cannot be for exploitation, because Executive Order 13406, states that it may not be used “for the purpose of advancing the economic interest of private parties to be given ownership or use of the property taken.”

            * Added caveat here, is if a country doesn’t have similar legislation as Executive Order 13406, then they need to pass such legislation ASAP, or else they risk having their resources exploited much like what happened in Uganda, where some 20 000 tribes men/women had been kicked out of the Uganda national forest in order to make way for corporations.

            So, if sustainable development has the unforeseen consequence of increasing private property value, then all of the private property owners, not just corporation, will become richer.

    TruthStream Media
    This 11 minute ‘song’ Why the Truth Is So Important to Me is probably one which we all have a harmonic for.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXNT86HzQEM

    I think that it commendable that James Corbett often promotes some of the TruthStream Media videos in his “Suggested Viewing”.
    And here, with Corbett Report’s Episode 322 – What Is Sustainable Development?, James uses one of their clips to help get a point across.

    Corbett is very good about promoting others and the good work they do.

  8. If Corbett wants to script a parody propaganda commercial/spot/trailer/PSA for the elites to unite and exterminate humanity (or at least apply full spectrum dominance), I’ll be happy to animate it. Or anyone can pitch ideas here. Or, Corbett could narrate it an openly post it so that open sourced anyone could do their version/mashup/creation. Then we could start a mock-commercial festival/contest/playlist to feature parodies of serious problems – perhaps enough to create a mockumentary.

    Variations:
    – Corbett with a used car salesman voice and sales pitch
    – Corbett voice acting narrates pedo-piraelites raping and pillaging
    – Corbett as a Texas oil mogul
    – Corbett as an elite Irish scholar
    – Corbett as a military industrial complex pacifist department
    – Corbett as the IRS anarchy investigator
    – Corbett as meat market billionaire drug warlord pedo Bruce Wayne
    – Corbett as MC at the Builderberg conference
    – Corbett as agent double oh nine eleven
    – etc.

    Or if Corbett ever wants a break for fun he can re-write anti-establishment dialogue to lip-sync overdub conversations in classic movies like “Giant”, “Planet Of The Apes”, “1984”, “There Will Be Blood”, or “Ex Machina” in falsetto.

    • Weird. I wrote the above before I’d even finished half way.
      I didn’t know I’d see an animation @59:20-1:01:56.
      It was suitable.
      I’m thinking dynamic and/or outrageous for a red alert alarm bells general wake up call.

    Genetics & Fluoride & the Oiligarchs’ Endgame

    Here is James Corbett giving a brief answer to What is the oiligarchs’ endgame? on the James Corbett reddit AMA
    (4 minutes) https://www.bitchute.com/video/Bg8ISZZkYD0/

    A geneticist from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences {NIEHS} gives a talk at a Fluoride Action Network (FAN)Conference – 2017.
    The talk itself is about 26 minutes, then Q&A follows. Some fascinating information about genetics and epigenetics and variables are presented. He points out how a substance absorbed during gestation might effect a person when he is 60 years old, or bring about an influence several generations later.
    https://youtu.be/RUPPS_pxVEE

    (About 3 minutes)
    One tidbit points out how different breeds of mice might have different tolerances for the same toxin. Then going into epigenetics, he shows photos of mice which are genetically the same, but they look and respond differently. (About 3 minutes)

      reminds me of the title of an Adam Curtis doc…”All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace”…

  14. herrqlys says:

    James, for me this Agenda21 come-Agenda2030, etc. is an even bigger story than the How/Why Big Oil Conquered The World.

    Perhaps your massive Oil project is more digestible for many people because the threads to this have been hanging out there for a long time. The mechanisms for big business and wealthy megalomaniacs to use governments/institutions is more generally understood, as is even the sprawling BIS octopus.

    However, the rationale and modus operandi behind Sustainable Development are far more opaque, and we are looking forwards rather than backwards. And without proper journalism on a worldwide scale, the related events are largely hidden.

    Too many would roll their eyes at the plight of indigenous peoples in countries they’ve never heard of (i.e. this doesn’t concern me). And the general public would have to actually read documents (!!!) to see the proof of things, contending with legalese, the preferred language of shysters.

    This nefarious land/resources grab is taking place in a truly global way, such that individual national governments, if not already complicit, have little (or no) jurisdiction over the total web of things.

    This is totally frightening.

    • wingsuitfreak says:

      contending with legalese, the preferred language of shysters.

      Reminded me of a quote out of Steel Bonnets: The story of the border reivers. In it, there was this old outlaw who was quoted (loosely as it’s been some twenty years since I’ve read it) as saying: “English Common Law! Don’t tell me about English Common Law, that’s how the weak rule the strong!” One of the most enjoyable academic books I’ve ever read. JimBob from fluorida

      I agree that Episode 322 – What Is Sustainable Development? ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ofmAGaMfkA ) penetrates with impact!

      This is an extremely important aspect which was touched on in “Why Big Oil Conquered the World”.

      Just the other day at the grocery store when a lady about age 60 was conducting a survey on her I-Pad, I segued the conversation to technology to being spied upon and monitored and virtually everything will be monitored in our grandchildren’s future, etc. etc. and when she bit… I told her to watch “How Big Oil Conquered the World”. She was very keen on watching it with her husband.

  16. FIW says:

    Hello everybody,

    I’m new to this forum so please forgive me if I comment in the wrong section, I do think that what I have to say is relevant to this thread though.

    I’d like to talk about the hyped up anti diesel hysteria that has struck Europe. As usual the Scandinavian countries are taking the lead with all of them talking about banning diesel vehicles from 202X.

    Well, I find it disturbing and down right dumb. First of all without the diesel engine we would never have had the “transport revolution” without which the industrial revolution, and the there of following prosperity, would never had taken off the way I see it. It’s in every truck, every train, every ship, every generator etc. and within the last decade or so nearly every car, and it’s there for a reason. Secondly, in spite of it’s age, I think it’s far from obsolete and irrelevant, it ought to be any volountarist’s dream of an engine, by saying this I’m referring to it’s ability to burn so many other types of fuel than diesel, fuels that would even leave the CO2 and NOX footprint at a minimum, if not zero all together, for those who believe the importance of that hype.

    The funny thing is even that the older the engine is the more flexible it actually is with regard to what fuel you feed it. The way I see it, going diesel with the alternative fuels that are already available would be a win win for most.

    I’m not the only one to see this potential. For those who are interested I recommend sites like:

    http://www.biofuelsforum.com

    Even governments saw the potential many years ago:

    http://www.biofuelsforum.com/threads/11696-Blending-Diesel-with-Filtered-Vegetable-Oil

    Look for the comment on the book “Diesel Engines for Land and Marine Work”

    Etc. There’s tons of stuff out there and currently I’m looking into it myself since I own a diesel car and sure as h… aint planning on giving it up for an electric moped with a roof and 4 wheels controlled by google.

    The way I see it this ban is another strike against our freedom of mobilitiy and big corp. elimination of competetion.

    • mkey says:

      Hi, do you have any links related to the hysteria you talk about?
      There is an obvious antidiesel sentiment fostered in Europe, but I am not aware of a major push to ban it.

      • FIW says:

        I will post some more links as soon as I’m able to it. But I know that Norway already is planning to ban diesel in 2025 I think it is, Denmark is of course already engineering their society to accept a ban that they have already more or less decided to push through, the Netherlands have decided on a ban too. As I said, I will post some more links here, right now I can’t remember the specific links from the top of my head.

        Apart from this I know from my own experience how this hype has rooted. Here in Spain, Catalonia, where I live now, the independence movements have sort of taken it on board as a way of discrediting the central government and making themselves look like a green sustainable alternative. The various movements like the CDR the ANC are full of people bloating about “oh look at progressive countries like Holland and Denmark etc. they’ve already decided a ban on diesel cars and what is our government doing!?” I really nearly threw up one day when I saw a post that showed a video from Holland presented like a small, green idyllic country where they now have bike lanes where people generate electricity by riding on them, which they then can put in their little cars…amazing….these naive people saw progress, I saw little slaves in a digital hamsterwheel peddling away. Only a few years ago you could drive around with whatever vehicle you liked, now I often get comments from people if I park for a moment with my engine idling, some hold their noses in contempt some say things like “Is that car okay? It smells” The stupidity and mass hysteria is incredible some times not to mention the fact that at the MOT they will now prohibit your from driving if you emit too much whether brakes and everything else is okay, it doesn’t matter.
        Ah and, of course, some members of the rich elite here have already bought their first Tesla which they drive around with that “I’m so much better than you” expression on their faces. This is a year and a half later only..I find it rather scary to be honest.

        I’ll get around to those links, I’ve got to go.

        Some of them are pretty old. I’m pleased to say that I have not yet found any where they’ve actually successfully implemented a direct ban, but as you can read in some of the links they’re trying very hard. I used to have more links, but they’ve gone missing since I’m not terribly good at keeping order in my stuff.

        It seems to me that even just talking about a ban has already done a lot of damage, maybe that’s the tactic, to scare/discourage people from buying, I know a lot of people myself who have already fallen for it.

        Anyway…I find it sick that they can just decide what ever they want to and force it over our heads, if not directly then little by little in small digestible bites.

          Initially I took what you were saying as if they are aiming diesel engines specifically with these ban attempts instead of the fossil fuel operated (personal) vehicles in general. This is a very layered issue, with a number of caveats coming to mind.

          Firstly, the automobile manufacturing industry draws a lot from government subsidies i.e. the tax cash cow. These bonds are probably rather strong and these companies will need time to move into something else that can also be subsidized like there is not tomorrow.

          Secondly, the current idiotical push in Germany for renewable sources of energy, which is heavily subsidized by burning of coal (a very clean source), should be topped off by completely electrical cars, it will accelerate the downfall of that system for sure. They’ll worry about all the spent lithium sometime in the future even if energy crisis will hit a lot sooner than that becomes an issue.

          Thirdly, much of the western way of life, in which there is a necessary commute between the place of work and place of living, is not very compatible with these new ideas. These concepts were introduced way back to increase spending and now, with such infrastructure in place, they want to push in the other direction.

          Public consent is easy to produce. There are solutions to these problems, at least potential but very promising solutions, but with these degenerates in charge backed by gullible support of the unthinking masses any of them will be difficult to achieve.

            Well yes and no. I can see that they’re aiming at both petrol and diesel fueled vehicles, but in some of the countries, like Denmark, they seem to aim more at the diesel engine, I know this since my parents live there. Here in Spain the diesel engine shows up in far more discussions too than the petrol engine, especially since all the hype of the so called “diesel gate scandal” i.e. VW’s lying about the emission levels of their diesels. Anyway, perhaps I tend to focus more on the diesel because I think it would be particularly insane to ban that one, not that I think that ANY of them should be banned.

            But whether you’re a blue collar slave in a smart city or a peasant in the Ural mountains, whether the infrastructure we have was constructed in this way to encourage spending, we need mobility on one level or another, we need to be able to shift things and people from A to B and for that we need energy and, the way I see it, not the kind of energy that comes out of a cable.

            Besides, I think this goes a lot deeper than just energy crisis and a cabal wanting to rip off society for another round of infrastructural change. Call me a tinfoil hat conspiracy theorist if you want, but imagine the potential for an even further centralization of energy than now once every damn vehicle is electric. As long as you own a combustion engine, the chance of finding or even making fuel for it is a lot bigger than if you’re depending 100% on a power station some where owned by some far away investors, of course depending on where you live, but anyway. Once everyone is relying 100% on them for everything they can do whatever they want to with the prices and put whatever carbontax they want on the production of electricity etc., and/or rationalize how many KWh you get and there would be nothing you could do. Controlling a system where everyone potentially has the ability to get their fuel through alternative means is a lot harder than if everyone has to get it from the same socket sort of speak. That’s where I think they’re heading with this too, just like they want to digitalize/centralize even further the economy and get rid of cash. The way I see it fossil fuels are sort of “the cash” of the energy sector.

            As for the rest you say I entirely agree especially with regards to the degenerates in power and the unthinking masses.

            I just wish that those masses would start thinking and show some initiative or even better, just start doing what they want in spite of all of their rediculous bans, but then again that’s the problem isn’t it? The wast majority of us don’t even know what they really want without someone spoon feeding them with an opinion..

            Ah, it’s late here and I’ve had a long day and I’m probably making even less sence now than when I started.

            Anyway, I think that especially the fact that there’s an alternative solution to the problems, that can be achieved with that we already have, needs attention and should be spread out to people.

    More about the potential of the diesel engine and the efforts to discredit it (See the link about the Recardo report) in what I think could be called the war on fossiles
