Episode 381 – Who Will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?

06/19/2020178 Comments

We’ve all come across online fact checkers that purport to warn us away from independent media sites under the guise of protecting us from fake news. But who is behind these fact check sites? How do they operate? And if these ham-fisted attempts at soft censorship aren’t the solution to online misinformation, what is? Join James for this week’s important edition of The Corbett Report podcast, where we explore the murky world of information gatekeeping and ask “Who will fact check the fact checkers?”

    James Corbett’s Friday 6/19/2020 Episode 381 – Who Will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?
    is stellar – all across the boards!

    The humor and wit really grabbed me.
    And there were all these little phrases, like “2nd hand cringe” and “Say it with me…”.

    But, by golly, when Broc West came on the screen, my body went epileptic. I couldn’t control myself. I lost it. It was great!!!
    Finally, after my laughter calmed, I had to rewind, so I could listen and watch through my watery blurred eyes.

    I still chuckle when I recall those first moments when Broc appeared.

    Anyway, thanks fellas for making this important episode. It covers a lot of ground.

    • Agreed. Great humor and great delivery from both James and Broc (aka: Talking Head – Worldwide Director of Prestigious Sounding Front Organization 😂).
      As Internet memes and James’ own 9/11: A Conspiracy Theory have demonstrated (and his Laughing At Tyrants video has thoroughly pointed out), humor can be a really effective way of getting truth to people.
      Come to think of it, James now has quite a collection of really well done clever humorous segments and he always nails the sarcasm.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        Personally, I would love to see a “short”.
        A couple minutes video which includes this Corbett and Broc fun.
        QUEUED (a minute or two)
        https://youtu.be/rtirKL_XmGg?t=2311

        A lot of folks won’t watch a long video.
        But places like Twitter will likely pick up that short and play it.
        It becomes promotion to watch “Who is Bill Gates”.

        By email, it is very easy to share a two minute teaser with friends.

        • Broc West says:

          I have a strong feeling that a “short” is in the works 😉

          • mkey says:

            Hopefully this is not a word play on the coming economic apocalypse 😉

          • Libertydan says:

            I like the Idea of a “Short” playing off the well circulated Propaganda (like the one in this Episode). It is kind of like AE911Truth.org “Debunking the Debunkers”, only with some humor.
            Perhaps the most successful Trashing of the Main Stream Media “News” was when a Comedy Central show ran multiple segments of “So called” News Reporters from all over the country who were all repeating the same Scrip. It got to be funny after a dozen, or so, repeated the same thing. Few people watching the skit could deny that Main Stream “News” was indeed scripted, and Main Stream began losing viewers.
            The latest “Novel Virus/Mystery Illness” has brought people back to the Propaganda Box, and thus exposed them to the likes of the “CBC How the talk to someone who is spreading COVID19 misinformation” (linked in the show Notes above). I have seen similar Propaganda in the States, and have seen people eat it up, yet one good “Short” would be about all it would take to break the programed hypnotic trance placed upon these poor unsuspecting lost souls.
            Keep up the Good work. You are making a difference!

              Thank you for this note HRS. I think JFK is the starting point for many of us. I knew politics were corrupt but never thought it would lead to this mess that I know now.

  3. SuperMom Belle says:

    People used to understand manipulation better, did they not? “Yellow Journalism,” I believe it was called. I’m guessing this “new” non-understanding of “un-truths” and/or “alternative facts” in our “post-truth” era is due to the indoctrination system and abundance of info-overload?

  4. Jojo says:

    For me there are some things that help determine if I am seeing propaganda or fake/twisted news:

    Video clips actually showing what the person is saying, remaining conscious that clips can be selected to give a false impression. When the article provides a link to the whole video, it helps. I have seen many clips of what the president said taken out of context.

    Pictures of documents, though I know some can be faked.

    Also, being conscious of words characterizing the subject or person that suggest a particular viewpoint.

    Weasel words are much harder to detect, but over time certain sources clearly use them consistently. For example, Obama said if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. He didn’t actually lie, but he did not say how LONG you could keep your doctor, which happened to not be very long.

    Weasel statistics. Recently on one right wing news station they showed how police shootings of whites were maybe a couple of hundred greater than for blacks. True but misleading. The percentage of the population was not given, just the total number. Percentages would show a very different story.

    Other times, I just have to remember the information and wait for other info to come out. So much on sites and TV is just click bait.

  5. yodo says:

    James , Adrienne Arsenault and the CBC and good examples of why the CBC News needs to be shut down and eliminated. It is 100 % pure Propaganda with as you say a ” cringe factor” that makes you feel ill.

    • Skip Tomalou says:

      Someone should forward this CBC investigative piece to Ms. Arsenault, so she can take the appropriate actions by cancelling her CBC feed, quitting her job, and alerting the authorities.

      “Anthrax War CBC The Passionate Eye FULL! Dr. David Kelly / Biological warfare”
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PquqlX8wnT0

      Funny how this doc is bookended by Prof. Francis Boyle warning against the dangers of the emerging bio-weapon arms race. Especially because Boyle was blacklisted by group-think journalism after assertions like these, despite the fact that he drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, approved unanimously by Congress and signed into law by Poppy Bush.

      FWIW, I sincerely wish that Boyle, following his awesome Great Game India interview, had come onto the Corbett Report, rather than spending hours with that Limbaugh-of-Independant-Thought, Alex Jones. Talk about a self-own. None-the-less, Boyle remains an important voice, and James, I really think you ought to consider having him on.

      • yodo says:

        nudge nudge wink wink… tongue in cheek
        Que?
        She is no benign ” actor” in this, she is directly creating Propaganda, as is the cameraman, the editor and editor in chief.
        Not fired, prosecuted for their “responsibility” in shoving garbage like this at us at the tax payers expense.

        True dat, that at some points the CBC did at one time have some pretty good stuff. But does not “exonerate them of their criminality!
        Also left out is the CBC’s greatest act, reporting by omission, that it never happened at all, black out.. yeah a great bunch Cum Laude!

        But right now the CBC is ” The Ministry for Truth” and it needs to be shut down and then investigated..publicly and exposed

  7. I Shot Santa says:

    When James did his 1 in a hundred routine in which he mentioned someone with cognitive processes going to a fact checker my first thought was “what person with any cognitive processes would go there?”

    However, I don’t think it’s a ridiculous strategy. They know their targets. The majority of net users stick to mainstream sources. And a significant portion never check out any news. Video games, TVs, etc. Most refuse to think at all. Sure we read dissent in the comment sections, but look at the views of the videos. Do they have tens and tens of millions of views? No. Maybe a million. And that’s rare. And of those, what percentage is sane and/or capable of rational thought? Just something to depress you with.

    • mkey says:

      If it were any other way, we wouldn’t be in this pickle, would we?

      • I Shot Santa says:

        True. But if we weren’t in this pickle, I’d be spending my time jousting windmills. A person achieves more of their potential with a greater opposition. How much more opposition can we ask for? You can’t have heroes without villains.

  8. отец says:

    Although such “fact checking authorities” fall under the logical fallacy argumentum ad verecundiam (argument from authority), logical fallacies are the most effective method of influencing the mass public, which is why logical fallacies is the native language of politicians.

  9. catie says:

    It’s funny to listen to their debunking lies (the “fact checkers”)…in a way; but if you have ever been a target by a family member, co-worker, or friend to tell you that YOU are delusional and a “conspiracy theorist” (and much more choice words), you know this is not funny.

    That happened to me on more than one occasion, And ALWAYS before I can state my argument with reliable sources. It’s like the little red light goes off in their head and immediately they go into action. Mind you, these are just average people like you and I, with no real benefit to shut out alternative views. It’s simply unadulterated brainwashing.

    • I Shot Santa says:

      It’s important to remember that they had to accept the brainwashing process.

      • eat my cake says:

        “they had to accept the brainwashing process.”

        thats right,
        as one looks towards the flushing of minds down the drain, the farther one looks towards those in the accelerating spiral to oblivion whip end, we encounter many who wont or cant take responsibility to think critically (amoungst many other delinquencies), which is all turn on a dime forgivable once manners have been restored, but in the mean time, truth is, lotsa people are blithering like idiots.

        I try to follow this rule: if someone is keeping another from thriving, then I have a right to interfere, otherwise it aint my circus.

    Hi James.
    I can not understand how you could make such and episode without even mentioning the peace revulotion podcast at tradegyandhope.com and all of Richard Groves hard work trying to rediscover the Lost tools of learning aka the Trivium. Much of the answer to this problem lies here!!!

  12. Jed says:

    Fact checked! Fact checkers
    fast finding fault with the
    free thinking human beings
    saying what they thought.
    Fact! fascist leaders

    Truth Investigator

    I had some ideas about making a fact checker.
    But the most important goal is to help people with critical thinking.
    So it is not a checker that says: Good or False.
    It in investigator that helps you to see the problems in an article.
    So you if you look deeper, you can learn from it.
    And this gives far more value over a simple checker.

    And based on the investigation we can come to a certain conclusion.
    You can also see how other people investigate it.
    Multiple investigations can be ordered in the most logical and most scientific
    supported order.
    With a different vote, all users can support their favorite conclusion
    (which should always be Aliens).
    There can also be a discussion board.

    • zyxzevn says:

      Common problems in short:

      1) Logical fallacies:
      Fallacies are a way to push to a conclusion without good reason.

      a) Straw-man

      b) Appeal to authority (“Experts say”)

      2) Scientific method:
      Can we determine what is scientifically certain?

      a) What is the evidence?
      Can the evidence be interpreted differently?

      b) What is possible and what else is possible?
      How can we check which one is correct?

      c) Are the parameters/circumstances the same?
      What conditions are important?

      d) Can everything be understood from the conclusions?

      3) Crime investigation:

      a) Just one witness, or biased witnesses.

      b) follow the money
      (Or other resources)

      c) Motives? Emotions?
      This is not about mind reading, but placing yourself in the same situation.
      What do they want? And/or what do they feel?
      Is there evidence for that?

      d) Did the witnesses or experts lie about something important?

      4) Your own Bias
      a) What do you want to be true or false? What are your feelings about it?
      b) Can you feel calm about it? (if not, also check with someone who is calm)
      c) Do you come to the same conclusion if you approach it from the other side?
      d) Can you understand why people would come to another conclusion without lying?

      5) Unknowns

      Sometimes we simply don’t know what happened exactly.
      And sometimes we only know a part of what happened.
      Just list the things that are important, but you don’t know for certain.

    • Mungjam says:

      Sure there a some folks who don’t know how to go about crosschecking information and could benefit from a lesson. The dangerous crux of the mass hypnosis is that most are too lazy to look deeper than the headline and get more empowerment out of reaction than out of discussion. The ones who care about the truth and integrity are already here and other alternative sites.

      • zyxzevn says:

        Thanks for reply,
        I wrongfully expected far more replies to my solution.

        My plan is that People that want to
        have a thorough research, will interact.
        And this will increase the quality of the investigations.

        After a while, people may feel stupid for using
        the normal fact-checkers, that always dumb
        down the answers and are so often wrong.

  14. minnie says:

    If I see something that looks really startling, I generally check the sources. Usually it doesn’t take long. But sometimes you find deliberate disinformation.

    A few months ago, just as the coronavirus craziness was starting to take off, I stumbled across a really convoluted piece of disinfo. I was searching for something on Facebook, and I came across a headline saying that the UK government was preparing to send in the military. It was being shared on the Facebook pages of Labour Party offshoots, by political activists, not “your granny” or “your credulous uncle”. This is the link to the piece:

    https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/03/16/mili-m16.html?fbclid=IwAR2Q4fa5KuIV7RmQ0rYVyMiJlPsijfPmfC6Uh8EJu5kBFeH8umaExSER23k

    Yes, the World Socialist Web Site. What astonished me was the lengths the author had gone to to make it appear that it came from a credible source. The piece sourced the Mail on Sunday, but it was actually cobbled together from at least three different articles, none of which came from the Mail on Sunday, and each bit of truth was threaded together with stuff that had clearly been made up.

    It took me a while to work out what was going on, because when I cut and pasted a piece of the text, and ran it into an online search, it did relate to a source, but the more sensationalist claims didn’t.

    The article was also being shared by bloggers who clearly hadn’t bothered to check the sources.

    It really annoys me that this kind of stuff has a kind of credibility with political activists who pride themselves on their education and intellect, while the highly-sourced work of independent investigative journalists is condescendingly dismissed as “fake”.

    Three Derrick Broze Fact Checks are mentioned in the show notes above.

    Here is another from Derrick Broze which came up again this week.

    A MYTH…
    “Nazi Germany used Fluoride in the water to control people.”

    https://www.corbettreport.com/battle-for-the-arctic-heats-up/#comment-86469

    I can attest to what Derrick states.
    I virtually put everything on the “Dallas For Safer Water” website.
    During the course of adding to the website over the years, I repeatedly ran into this Nazi Germany Fluoride Canard.
    I searched and searched and searched to find an actual valid source with documentation which substantiates the claims.
    I never could find anything of substance.
    It is very difficult to try to find something which is not there, which is non-existent.

    I would cringe when an activist would mention the Nazi Germany Fluoride Canard to the media, or directly to the Dallas City Council, or in the comments of the newspaper.

    Canard

  16. stephen.b says:

    Long time watcher, brand new subscriber.

    Loved the video, A+ tier quality content as always.

    One thing you didn’t mention, but I think is important, is how whenever there is a verifiable, documented “Conspiracy” that is proven fact – such as Operation Northwoods, Operation Paperclip, Operation Mockingbird, the Tuskegee Experiments, or MK Ultra, the “Fact Checkers” are suspiciously silent about it. Go ahead and type any of the above terms into the search bar on sNopes and you will get only tangentially related search results even though there is declassified official documentation proving them all to be real. You’d think if they were objective sources of truth they should confirm whenever the US government or big business is caught conspiring against the populace.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Good point Stephen.B
      Their silence reveals their intent.

      By the way, I’m glad you are here.
      We all are.

  18. Alchemist says:

    Interesting new data! 30% less children than usual died during lockdown. Could it have something to do with the sharp decline in routine vaccinations?

    Figure 14: Age <18 deaths per week
    https://www.cohealthchoice.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Lessons-from-the-Lockdown-vF-6-17-20.pdf

    “Virtually the entire change came from infants. Somehow, the changing pattern of American life during the lockdowns has been saving the lives of hundreds of infants, over 200 per week…

    One very clear change that has received publicity is that public health officials are bemoaning the sharp decline in infant vaccinations as parents are not taking their infants into pediatric offices for their regular well‐baby checks. In the May 15 issue of the CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), a group of authors from the CDC and Kaiser Permanente reported a sharp decline in provider orders for vaccines as well as a decline in pediatric vaccine doses administered. (8) These declines began in early march, around the time infant deaths began declining”

    *WARNING* This has not yet been fact-checked, so we don’t know yet if it’s just another vaccine-related coincidence.

    • Steve Smith says:

      Likely partially due to less time on the roads.

      • Alchemist says:

        Vaccine awareness activists have been waiting for this data for a long time.

        This is what we know: Infant deaths are often dismissed as SIDS, infants usually go to the doctor for shots every couple months and have not been during the pandemic, and “virtually the entire change came from infants”. Lower deaths in general could be attributed to less car accidents, but this is about the disproportionately smaller number of infant deaths.

    • mik says:

      Did some quick reading, interesting.

      Mortality decline happened in age group 1 month-1 year, otherwise unfortunates most heavily attacked by vaccines (infants with immune system under construction).

      Read carefully:
      “We have no specific data on the trend in SIDS deaths during the pandemic. We have, however, heard anecdotal reports from emergency room(ER)doctors suggesting some have observed a decline in SIDS. One doctor who say she might see 3 cases of SIDS in a typical week has seen zero cases since the pandemic and associated lockdowns began.”

      SIDS= Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, sudden death of previously healthy infant that could be result, “side effect”, of vaccination (30% of infants 1m-1y mortality).

      Strange, how they don’t have data, for any death person cause of death has to be known. They say no reason why is so and immediately start supporting their narrative with anecdotal data.

      Make your own conclusion.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        BUMP

      • Alchemist says:

        I appreciate that they took the time to collect this data and am not too surprised they included these anecdotes, since it’s coming from a biased health choice org after all. SIDS data would be helpful here. I reached out to the people who put this together to see if they’re digging deeper. Haven’t heard back yet, but I’ll keep you posted if I get more info.

        Many of us suspect there is causation, and so far the data seems to support that, but we still don’t know. I hope we can get to the bottom of this soon now that we finally have the opportunity!

    • Jed says:

      Could also relate to increased supervised time with their quarantined parents

      • Alchemist says:

        Good point. I wish there was more information about SIDS specifically. This is a significant and change and the numbers definitely warrant further investigation.

        • ad says:

          hi Alchemist, you could try this link, if you can stand the horrors: https://healthwyze.org/reports/161-sudden-infant-death-syndrome-and-the-vitamin-c-connection.

          it says “approximately 2,600 babies die each year from sudden infant death syndrome in the U.S. alone”. so that may give a reference for calculating the ‘baby death deficit’ caused by corona.

          vaccines are given together with a proper dose of some deadly poison, with the optimistic view, that the immune system would be woken by the poison, because immune systems do not by themselves react to small quantities of weakened or killed bacteria or viruses. without the poison no immunity would result.
          meanwhile, it’s taken for granted, that the available vitamin-c in the body will do away with the poison.

          sadly, it may just not be there and they cannot reveal their true way of working for this would wreck their current bussiness model. so let the little suckers die, pecunia non olet. that was some latin, watch out for more.

          someone from the inside of vaccine manufacturing once called this ‘the dirty little secret of vaccination’. of course, the littleness of this ‘little secret’ is very relative. if your child dies it becomes rather huge, though the manufacturer may not give a shit about a few dead babies. and yes, there are much bigger secrets with many many more deaths behind the medical-pharmaceutical maffia.

          actually, what the link above says about vitamin-c may work out two ways in the current situation. on the one hand people get scared by the pandemic narrative, which takes away their vitamin-c, as fear is an important stressor. as a result, breast feeding mothers may have less c in their milk and more sids will happen.

          on the other hand, it seems the idea of taking vitamin-c under these circumstances is becoming wide spread, so even with the same level of vaccinations, there could be less sids babies. it’s funny how the world changes all the time.

          if the breast feeding mother takes a few grams of c a day, the baby will be safe. of course feeding your children poison is not attractive at all, so better do not vaccinate. but if you were forced into it, god forbids, take your precautions.

          for babies that are not breast fed, but still vaccinated, dr.klenner advises 500mg a day to start with and after that an extra gram a day for every year of age up to age ten.

    Great report but much of it the voice broke up and i couldn’t make out a lot of it – did any one else have the same experience ?

  20. If you blindly believe every other thing that comes your way, you’re guaranteed to have a false view of the world.

    And if you require 100% verifiable, concrete, court-admissible evidence in order to give any consideration to any new piece of information, you’re still guaranteed to have a false view of the world, since it’s pretty easy for the psychopaths in power to carry out their agendas without leaving a lot of that sort of evidence laying around.

    Conspiracy/truth research is essentially always about degrees of probability rather than clear-cut FACT or FAKE.
    And the more we research, the better we get at accurately assigning degrees of probability; the better we get at recognizing patterns, identifying cues and detecting bullshit.

    In other words, as a conspiracy/truth researcher, there are going to be extremely likely truths that you are aware of but which you won’t be able to prove to someone else (unless you’ve mastered Vulcan mind melding).

    Though the Michael Shermer disciples and other coincidence theorists of the world would detest the very thought of it, the fact of the matter is that conspiracy/truth researchers like James have a very special advanced skill that they don’t have; a skill for identifying truth; a skill that — like painting or violin playing — is established and mastered with time and effort, not instantly bestowed at birth or upon turning 18, or upon graduating high school or college.

      “Vulcan mind melding”

      I wonder if someone who is “self-aware”, is simply one who has a healthy access to memory (short and long term), and can therefore readily assemble rich verbal description, perhaps even backed up by substantive intents, which will then serve to win an argument, close a case, filibust the debunkling obfustcatter or even vulcanize?

      If so we need memory pills. I heard the kids were jacking-up on ginko extract before exams. though its also clear that good cognition isn’t enough, because the dark forces are using it (as well) at the moment to cull and worse.

    Hmmmm. So with “Real News” they say “Editorial board and writers are disclosed”. So that doesn’t include the writers of most medical news on the BBC. You cannot get this information. You certainly can’t contact them with a public opinion, even in your own field of expertise.

    I’d say the other hallmark of real news is CORRESPONDENCE. They allow for readers and viewers to write openly and provide new information that may show things in a different light. In fact this is probably the ONLY solid guide to what is real news and what is not. And moreover, unlike, say, Gates Notes, they don’t censor the feedback (although they may edit for brevity or limited space)

    I would like to clarify something about the importance of speed in warfare. It is one of the most decisive elements to victory. Even with a foolhardy plan. But it does offer us some opportunities.
    First; it is still going to take a lot more time to implement your strategy when you are dealing with an entire country or region. This gives us some time.
    Second; the very speed the state is using will alert many people who are presently sleeping. Though I doubt a whole lot more from now on. However, there will be a marked increase in the number of those who are aware, but are just keyboard warriors, to start becoming more determined to make a stand. The very notion of a substantial portion of a population prepared to fight back is a real deterrent. The only effective one. However, the state (and I mean every state buying into this crap. Belarus apparently ain’t drinking the Flavor-Aid. Happy Jeb?
    But this determination might make all the difference. And I know liberty will win. But we’re definitely going to lose a lot of stupid people either way. And the rest of the many ranges.

    It is ironic that Epstein has become so mainstream in recent times, as opposed to being considered a “conspiracy theory” years back.
    And now, there are bucks to be made.
    And, it is election year…

    ‘Filthy Rich’ director talks Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘molestation pyramid scheme,’ relationships with Trump and Clinton
    https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/jeffrey-epstein-filthy-rich-netflix-series-accusations-relationships-trump-clinton-223124504.html

    EXCERPTS
    As Netflix viewers have discovered in the weeks since its release, the four-part series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich is an infuriating but urgent viewing experience — a comprehensive detailing of how the enigmatic financial powerbroker orchestrated a “molestation pyramid scheme” that went unchecked for decades because of his extreme wealth and connections.

    It’s heartbreaking to hear the stories of the victims who come forward, most of whom were underage and from disadvantaged backgrounds when they were molested, assaulted or raped by Epstein after being lured into his house under the guise of being paid to give him a massage. And it’s absolutely rage-inducing to examine the circumstances that let Epstein continue his reign of sexual abuse for an additional 12 years after he was first indicted in 2007, then given a “sweetheart deal” plea agreement and a slap-on-the-wrist prison sentence. Epstein died by an apparent suicide after he was finally arrested again in 2019…

    …The miniseries is loosely based on the 2016 book Filthy Rich: A Powerful Billionaire, the Sex Scandal that Undid Him by popular crime novelist James Patterson (the Alex Cross series), released long before Epstein made headlines worldwide following his arrest last July. “He was disappointed, as a world’s bestselling author, that people seemed to not be paying much attention,” says Bryant, who began production on Filthy Rich nine months before Epstein’s 2019 takedown. “And the press is to blame a little bit in itself for not being more outraged when things happened back then.”

    Patterson, who appears in the series, was a neighbor of Epstein in Palm Beach, Fla., where the financier and sex offender routinely lured high school girls to his mansion…

    Filthy Rich also looks at two of the more media-salacious relationships Epstein had over the course of his life with U.S. presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton….

    • debra.b says:

      I watched the Netflix and the Investigation Discovery series. Curiosity killed the cat, I know. 🙂 This review of both is spot on. In a nutshell, as Elizabeth Vos says, “Omitting the intelligence aspect of Epstein’s history allows the Establishment media to portray his case as a mysterious and unsolvable aberration, rather than perhaps a continuation of business-as-usual amongst those in power.” It’s a good article.

      Consortium News
      By Elizabeth Vos
      Epstein Case: Documentaries Won’t Touch Tales of Intel Ties
      Two new documentaries on the Jeffery Epstein affair delve into lurid details & give voice to his victims, but both scratch the surface of the political & intelligence dimensions of the scandal, writes Elizabeth Vos.

      EXCERPT:
      Investigation Discovery premiered a three-hour special, “Who Killed Jeffrey Epstein?” on May 31, the first segment in a three-part series, that focused on Epstein’s August 2019 death in federal custody. The series addresses Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell, his links with billionaire Leslie Wexner, founder of the Victoria’s Secret clothing line, and others, as well as the non-prosecution deal he was given.

      The special followed on the heels of Netflix’s release of “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” a mini-series that draws on a book of the same name by James Patterson.

      Promotional material for “Who Killed Jeffery Epstein?” promises that: “… exclusive interviews and in-depth investigations reveal new clues about his seedy underworld, privileged life and controversial death. The three-hour special looks to answer the questions surrounding the death of this enigmatic figure.” Netflix billed its series this way: “Stories from survivors fuel this docuseries examining how convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein used his wealth and power to carry out his abuses.”

      Neither documentary however deals at all with Epstein’s suspected ties to the world of intelligence.

      Absent from both are Maxwell’s reported links to Israeli intelligence through her father, Robert Maxwell, former owner of The New York Daily News and The Mirror newspaper in London. Maxwell essentially received a state funeral in Israel and was buried on the Mount of Olives after he mysteriously fell off his yacht in 1991 in the Atlantic Ocean….

      https://consortiumnews.com/2020/06/18/epstein-case-documentaries-wont-touch-tales-of-intel-ties/

      Also, Elizabeth Vos makes mention of this case…..
      “As in the Belgian Dutroux case, victims alleged that multiple abusers acted in concert with each other, using blackmail to keep each other in line. In both instances, authorities and the media portrayed the abuse as chiefly the product of an aberrant lone predator.“

      I found this short documentary about that case (46:12) It’s a tough watch, but a good documentary. It seriously had me in tears.

    Some Points:
    -Case fatality rates are actually VERY low, esp <65 y/o, no different from the Flu in the US (in Japan Flu fatalities were 10X than Covid).
    -Lockdown kills more than Covid does (listen why).
    -If you just have Covid cold symptoms, DON’T go to the hospital.
    -Fatalities in NY are an outlier, the data seems unreliable.
    -It is possible to have immunity with undetectable antibodies.
    -It’s unclear if vaccines may help or harm at this time.
    -Predictions of 2.5 mil deaths in the US, 40 mil in the world were “science fiction”.
    -Contact tracing has no meaning if a significant % of persons are infected (ie even 5%), because most everyone has interacted with them.
    -Flattening the curve postpones the infections & only helps preparation but everyone will still get infected, and persons with other conditions like heart conditions, don’t go to hospitals and die from these non-Covid problems.

    James , you have really hit your stride as a journalist. The old school has a chance to avoid extinction with that pants on fire approach. Can you really expect any one of this generation to have any memory of a journalist, investigative journalist. Anyone under 55 years of age has no model to reference. They have no idea of the purpose for a journalist. No ideal what ever how and what their purpose is/ was. The question is how do you counter the false culture once you pass the change of state. Its like concrete. Wet is pliable but once it changes state it becomes static and no longer pliable. Its hard as a rock and set in its new state.

    While I can’t determine that many facts through the massive barrages of mainstream media and controlled opposition to mainstream media…

    I do find it helpful to ask the simple question: What are the chances?

    Event 201 was a perfect fit for the question, obviously. They had me at Coronavirus plushie.

    But think of that recent news snippet where the Chauvin character calmly moves off the Floyd character’s neck so he can be put on a stretcher. Aren’t people restrained till further restraint can be applied? How does someone go from violent restrainee (already slyly uncuffed) to stretcher case in the space of a couple of seconds? Who were the stretcher people? Did they just wander in and tell Chauvin character that they were the stretcher people so get off George’s neck?

    I will never be able to know all the facts regarding this event, but I can take what the presenters/producers of the event give me and, based only on that, ask my question…

    What are the chances?

    Well, the CDC just crashed the educational system. Thanks to Ron Paul’s homeschool newsletter for this. While he says it’s a boon for homeschooling, he failed to note it was intentional. Do I have facts to back this up? No. But I do know the system is being purposely crashed. Do I have any facts to prove the global societal crash is being done on purpose? No. But I do know that facts change all the time. One day that tree is a tree, the next it’s a set of frequencies. Truth transcends facts. But I digress.
    This is not unmitigated good news. Families are growing a bit tense. And people have grown so attached to this system that they can’t even imagine another. Child abuse is going to skyrocket. And while I think it’s going to be an improvement, the majority of children are going to suffer even more for a while.

    • Alchemist says:

      School will never be the same. Whether parents like it or not, they need to pick between homeschool or sending their kids to day prison. Unfortunately the negative stereotypes of homeschool are strong, and the way they imagined raising kids is so ingrained in their minds, so I doubt as many will homeschool as we hope. Like you said, they are too attached to the system and can’t imagine another way. Plus everyone is in denial. They don’t realize that changes accepted for any period of time will likely become permanent.

      I wish Elon Musk would talk more about the way he “homeschools” his kids, so working parents might be inspired to follow a similar model.

      • mik says:

        Many parents are not in position to choose, since both parents have to work for survival and kids go to kindergarten a.k.a. school.

        I think good school (probably very hard to find and then also to pay) is better than homeschooling.

        Elon won’t homeschool his kids, his nanny will.

        • Alchemist says:

          Elon created a small “home”school for his kids and a few other families. It’s called Ad Astra. They hired a teacher of their choice and employ the curriculum of their choice. I’d call it “group unschool”. He does not sit with them at the kitchen table going over worksheets (and neither do most homeschool families!).

          I’m in the SF Bay Area where there are tons of great drop-off programs for homeschoolers. It is definitely possible for working parents to create a personalized school experience for their kids while working. It takes a little research and some work to set up, but given the alternative, I’d say it’s worth it!

    PHILOSOPHY – Epistemology: ‘Knowledge First’ Epistemology
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ll9xlNi2-mI

    I don’t agree with fact checking projects on either side. People should be encouraged to think, to collect knowledge.
    The latest “school reform” in our country is supposed to free kids from learning things by rote, because that’s logical, we have information technology, you can find anything on internet. Never mind this is close to impossible if you cannot name things or being unaware of its existence. By relieving kids they will make room for learning something completely new: Critical Thinking. Holy shit.

    There is not much thinking possible without data, information, already present in someone’s head.
    But foremost: since when a government prefer critical thinking people??? Sure, they changed, yes I believe them….yes, of course, I will be waited by hundred horny virgins in heaven.

    Exploring of knowledge should not pass over Limits of Knowledge. Goedel’s incompleteness theorems and Turing findings on halting problem are just two of many.
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_undecidable_problems

    Science already proved answering all questions is impossible, even which questions are answerable is impossible to know.

    But most of the time we don’t dwell in extremes. Might be we are not interested in full knowledge, for example, we just want to know if someone is lying to us. By having conversation (live not online) with someone we can make very reliable conclusions. Sometimes is only gut feeling people say.

On dealing with fake news, propaganda and fact checking,I would appreciate your thoughts on the concept of solipsism, and how it is marketed to the masses, specifically how it proposes that the whole truth (outside of one’s self) is unknown and unknowable. I think that this concept is very relevant to this discussion!

      Thanks. It’s an interesting read. Obviously it’s being written for a state purpose, but it’s interesting, for sure. The matter of Polish villainy is raised. Someone writing from another political angle might raise the villainy of Benes and the Czechs. And so on and so on. Sure there’s patriotic hogwash mixed with the patriotism, but at least Putin and/or his writers show some capacity for thought and for context. Of course, talk of retrieving material from Soviet archives is as much a threat as a show of scholarly curiosity.

      How quickly we forget what doesn’t fit the script. We forget that Mongolian war between the Soviets and Japan which ended just two days before Stalin invaded Poland (fashionably late, for the sake of Western sensibilities). Who knows that Australia declared war on Finland and that New Zealand declared war on Thailand? Australia’s invasion of neutral Iran doesn’t get much trumpeting. People might start asking about the real nature of any war.

      Was the Phony War an anti-Soviet manoeuvre as implied in Putin’s article? Was Stalin’s collaboration with Germany forced or calculated in hopes of mutual destruction by Germany and the West? Bit of both?

      I’m like everyone else in preferring a neat white hat/black hat script to confusing context which just leads to wider and wider contextual considerations. I want to be a simpleton, but simple is an unaffordable luxury right now.

    Reporting live from Downtown Tulsa. The Donald gave a schizophrenic 1+ hour speech laced with the discription of the bad bad people outside the building. An incoherent anecdotal story or three that would have rivaled the most confusing elocutionists.
    The black lives matter leadership spread the money Henry Zarrow gave the leadership to, hire a riot, provocatures and for the Sherif and city police to stay out of sight.
    The crowds came together at 4th and Cheyenne to duke it out and for once the guns didn’t come out as of 10pm. The nights young however, the take from Zarrow was took, mostly pocketed by the Black leadership and didn’t get spent on quality mercenaries or
    Quality provocatures. The cops didn’t show but someone had 1st year Army National guardsmen in full ruck packs and M-1s on duty. Trump red necks win the first skirmishes.
    The MSM coverage was on par with the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade coverage. Their scripted coverage seem to drive the rumble to a level not seen by the cameras. There was little or quit nothing to get jiggy with. An absolute failure.
    I did have a compelling urge to drive down there and yell that the News 6 reporter was a racist much like Dan Dicks encountered last week. But just couldn’t get motivated. This I attribute to the breathing of heavy chemtrailing chemicals all week above Tulsa County.
    Would expect The Donald made a million $ in reelection and merchandizing sales and contributions.
    The Demo Marxist Zarrow lost $6 mmillion on a nothing Burger.
    Zarrow and such Zoros, Rockefeller inspired monopolists and technocratic eugenicists of 1918 burnt the original Black Wall Street down cause competition as we all know is a sin and not allowed. That same One party came to town tonight and used the same two adversaries to try and reenact the same divisional war to cover much bigger crimes and the true agent provocatures that burnt this place to the ground in 1918. The one eyed midget is King in the land of the blind.

    if msm wasn’t so childish and tedious i’d say get together with other legit media sources and start a crowd funding account to fund taking msm to court when they falsely accuse the legit media of their own behaviour. its slander. it’d be cool to see msm held accountable for their abusive behaviour.

    Oh the irony! I used a fact checker just yesterday, as my daughter (hey maybe my rantings are getting through to the kids) worriedly said we all had a track and trace app on our phones, installed without our permission and without our knowledge. She showed me the Covid 19 thing on her iphone. I searched on my android phone for it and it was not there where she said it would be.

    A “rumour” had been spread on facebook about it:

    https://blog.google/inside-google/company-announcements/apple-google-exposure-notification-api-launches/

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53120290

    So I fact checked it (ugh) by a fact checker funded by facebook and google:

    https://fullfact.org/health/covid-19-track-and-trace-app-has-not-been-automatically-downloaded-peoples-phones/

    So this video/piece was very apt James/Broc in more ways than one. What the actual? Did this happen via an update? And I know websites and businesses have the new Covid 19 speak notices/policies and what not, you cannot escape it, but this and why am I so infuriated/surprised?

          What I’m seeing in them,
          what motavated such,
          was his life long zeal
          for getting himself fucked.

            the lava lamp brought out the scientist in me… bought a smartphone six pack, pulled one out, grabbed my corded phone, put on my vinegar conehead mask & black plague spacesuit, jumped into my keg of corona beer. next morning, the keg was empty, & after unwinding the tele cord from round my neck, tested both phones, wtf? both were dead. so i stuck ’em in the dryer watched ’em go round & round w/ suit & mask for several hours & just as i suspected would happen — my beloved landline worked perfectly, i couldnt get a dial tone with the stupid smartphone. im planning on doing a series of unbiased scientific experiments demonstrating the superiority of corded phones, next up: Train Kept a Rollin’

It didn’t just go afire, it sparked, spit and smoked whilst I soccered it down the hallway into the ambulance bay, then out the garage door — I couldn’t even enjoy watching it burn as it had smoked the place out, putting me to scramble open all the doors and windows before the fire alarm went off, so I wouldn’t have to explain myself to the Fire Department at 3am.

    In the case of Event 201, it seems that the crux of Fake News accusations relates to the word “Predicted.” Prediction, of course, implies agency and intention, which may be legitimately conjectured, but is unknowable without whistleblowers and leaks to back it up. Perhaps a better phrase to use to avoid confusion and dismissal-risk would be “anticipated,” or more specifically “anticipated presciently,” maybe even “suspiciously and synchronistically anticipated.”

    On another note, in the context of other modern shock-doctrine style terror-mass-media events, we have all observed that 9/11 had a bevy of conveniently time ‘exercises that go live,’ just as the 7/7 tube attacks did, and at least one of the mass shooter events (was it Sandy Hook?): clearly and oh-so “coincidentally.” Experientially, the SARS-Cov-2 Bio-warfare Response with Shutdown phenomena feels a lot like “9/11, the Sequel: super-slow-motion state-sponsored apocalypse.” Within this analogy, Event 201 completely fits this model of Exercise-Gone-Live, and this is the context through which it ought to be viewed.

    Much Love, and happy father’s day all you intrepid breeder-men,
    Skip

    • MagicBullet says:

      Right, if Covid infection started before Event201, then Event201 would not have been “foreknowledge” as in stated in, “Was There Foreknowledge of the Plandemic?” – Episode #059. It would have actually been an “afterknowledge” strategy operation hiding the actuality.

    For me, one key piece of information or useful video would be to provides Tips or a strategy to stop the disinformation about the number of people that tested positive for Covid-19. We are now in June and the test being used has still not be validated by the Koch postulates. Unless a new more “deadly” virus comes along, the number of “positive” (should I say false positive) tests will be used to justify a second wave, Phone App tracing, and, ultimately, the “go back to normal” vaccine. This is, in my humble opinion, the key element on which to bring “real information” at this time.

    Hi James, im not sure if youve already seen this but i figured I’d post anyway since this is happening in our own backyard. Im a legal gun owner in Canada and the recent gun grab (done with emergency powers) by Trudeau with just the stroke of a single pen has me more than worried. The language on the face of it makes it seem like theyre just trying to ban ar15’s but when you look at what was actually signed under technical definitions and confirmed by rcmp, they have also now effectively banned the most widely used hunting gun in history. The language “guns with a 20mm bore or greater” has now made the ownership of 12ga shotguns with removable chokes (most modern ones have these) illegal and subject to theyre costly buy back program. This is concerning enough by itself in light of the recent clamp down globally, however its now been revealed by macleans magazine that the shooter may have indeed been an undercover agent. Im hoping we can dig into this before the gun grab takes full effect, heres hoping the power of open source journalism can shed some light on this incredibly pivotal situation.

    Sincerely

    MITSTER.

    As usual, James has elevated my paradigm from a hodgepodge of suspicions to an orderly set of credible beliefs. This report is a masterpiece. The fact-checker strain of disinformation affirmation must go way back. Even the Athenians would have been grateful for a transcript of Propaganda Watch.
    Information comes my way through the Corbett Report, NYT, Washington Post, Rachel Maddow, and slightly left-leaning sources that would make Karl proud. Many well-regarded newspapers include facts, but bury them deep in the story. Rachel Maddow is the most entertaining cable news host (since Keith Olbermann semi-disappeared) and my favorite MSNBC personality until she touted the Pentagon’s fantastical 9/11 comic book. The souls of the in-crowd have a price, and media stars must have sold theirs for a job and multimillion-dollar salary. I would do the same for far less.
    My eye-opener was Operation Mockingbird, the CIA’s insertion of operatives in to media outlets to print all the news that fits. “Lie” is such an ugly and overused pejorative. The government’s story guardians don’t lie sometimes, they mostly transform above-boiling truths into sub-tepid parables that comply with corporate rules of etiquette. Notably, the spy agency has NEVER DENIED the rumor that fact non-checkers accomplish their mission armed only with an office near the editing room and scissors.

    Right out of the play book.

    An expert at the Reuter’s fact check site contracicts an expert from the The New York Times. DNA vaccines don’t change your genetic makeup—true or false?

    From today’s Jon Rappoport’s post.
    https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/06/23/fact-check-reuters-dna-vaccines-dont-change-your-genes/

    [I edited for length. Go to JR’s site (above) for full article]

    Let’s fact-check Reuters: they say DNA vaccines don’t change your genetic makeup—true or false?

    Jon Rappoport

    As my readers know, I’ve been reporting on new types of technology that could be used in a coming COVID-19 vaccine—and warning about the consequences.

    One such technology is: DNA vaccines. They would alter recipients’ genetic makeup permanently.

    But Reuters has seen fit to claim: “A future COVID-19 [DNA] vaccine will not genetically modify humans.” This comes from their “fact-check team” — May 18, 2020: “False claim: A COVID-19 vaccine will genetically modify humans.”

    To reach this conclusion, Reuters cites two people: “Mark Lynas, a visiting fellow at Cornell University’s Alliance for Science group”, and “Dr. Paul McCray, Professor of Pediatrics, Microbiology, and Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa.”

    I have cited the New York Times, March 10, 2015, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” Here are quotes from the Times article:

    “By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] monkeys, the scientists are essentially re-engineering the animals to resist disease.”

    “’The sky’s the limit,’ said Michael Farzan, an immunologist at Scripps and lead author of the new study.”

    “The first human trial based on this strategy — called immunoprophylaxis by gene transfer, or I.G.T. — is underway, and several new ones are planned.” [That was five years ago.]

    “I.G.T. is altogether different from traditional vaccination. It is instead a form of gene therapy. Scientists isolate the genes that produce powerful antibodies against certain diseases and then synthesize artificial versions. The genes are placed into viruses and injected into human tissue, usually muscle.”

    [Here is the punch line] “The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.”

    So it’s a battle of the experts. The two men Reuters cited, versus the Times’ David Baltimore.

    The verdict on the Reuters fact-check team? Fact-checkers checked the wrong box.

    Final point for the moment: Researchers are fond of saying their genetic technologies are quite safe. This a bald-faced lie. Claiming, for example, that a DNA COVID vaccine would alter humans’ genetic makeup in entirely predictable and harmless ways is like saying a car without brakes, doing a hundred miles an hour, set loose on a highway during rush hour, would create no damage whatsoever.

    Interesting, in that one clip with the attractive woman with the print dress and the British accent, that governments, tech companies and media regulators are responsible for what happens to a story that is deemded to be fake news.

    This is the crux of the problem. Who made them the arbiters of Truth? Who made them the standard by which Truth is determined?

    If people won’t see this as a real problem, then all hope is lost. People don’t want to think anymore.

    I certainly don’t know everything, but I’m willing to entertain many possibilities as to what is true and what is not. Above all, I live by what conforms to reality.

    Techcamp are:

    – “hands-on participant-driven workshops, that connect private sector technology experts with journalists, non-governmental organizations, civil society advocates etc, to explore and apply innovative tech solutions to global issues”

    Mr Schenk also created a software tool to find/source the origin-point of “fake news” (the tool is called ‘trendolizer’, and another tool is called Maarten Schenk… ;)… After the 2016 election results were widely blamed on fake news, Facebook partnered with a number of fact checking organizations to fight the spread of fake news, and eventually used Lead Stories as its primary partner.

    Leadstories also receives $359,000 from Facebook for a third part fact checking partnership…
