  1. James and Broc,

    You may or may not remember that I once commented here and thanked you both for learning and sharing the best truth you can, like many of us do, and said that I think you guys are smart enough to know that all we can do is learn and share the best truth we can that we know about at whatever time that makes sense to us. Yes there is a big difference in a war for defense and a war of psyops and aggression. Having said that both of you know that even this General back then could have been duped about whatever or even controlled opposition like Julian Assange and many today. America was given a Republic, and for good reason, not a Democracy now with electronic voting machines, which is one of the dumbest things ever from mankind. Just one of that is. I’ve noticed lately how some people are trying more and more to keep hidden some very simple truths that have been spun, like many things and words have been, since 1913.

    The Nuremberg enterprise violated ancient and fundamental principles of justice. The victorious Allies acted as prosecutor, judge and executioner of the German leaders. The charges were created especially for the occasion, and were applied only to the vanquished. Defeated, starving, prostrate Germany was, however, in no position to oppose whatever the Allied occupation powers demanded. As even some leading Allied figures privately acknowledged at the time, the Nuremberg trials were organized not to dispense impartial justice, but for political purposes.

      Thanks James, triggered me into buying the Audiobook of Gen Butler’s book. Particularly poignant as NATO fights its proxy war with Russia until the last Ukrainian has died.

  3. A57 says:

    My son did 1 tour of duty in Korea, then 2 in Afghanistan and 3 tours in Ramadi Iraq where he had his hearing completely gone in one ear and compromised in the other. The reason I tell you this is because after serving 16 years and 9 months in the US Army and with his hearing loss they told him he could still finish his 20 year career by teaching the last 2 years at fort Benning, GA.
    Well that was a lie, he was forced to take a early retirement once stationed back at Benning, and for them doing this to him made him bitterly angry and confused. He told me he didn’t know what he did wrong, why did they lie to me, he didn’t care about the money he was a career soldier and now he was at a cross roads that left him with nowhere to go. He has PTSD but of course wouldn’t listen to his mother and me and get help, on July 4th 2015 he took his pistol and killed himself after going out partying with some brothers in arms. FUCK THE US ARMY AND … OHHH, I

    Seeing the re-promotion of this fantastic “Episode 123” (there’s a hidden meaning in there somewhere, I’m sure ;)) warms my heart.

    I forget how many times I have used/promoted this episode in my writing.

    The thing I love about the episode is that JC actually dug up some original audio, so that we can actually hear the man. Gruff, honest, forceful; one can understand why soldiers fought beside and for him.

    His journey is one of inspiration. I have said many times that his portrait should hang in the Oval Office as a warning and guiding light.

    Thank you, James, for reviving this all too important episode.

  5. This is the bottom part of my first comment here that got cut off because it was over 500 words, which I didn’t realize was a limit for comments until just now.

    Where Comedy Ends and Hasbara Begins
    By Gilad Atzmon

    “The ADL says of me that I am an “outspoken promoter of classic anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.” This is an absurd lie as I have repeatedly argued that there are no Jewish conspiracies since it is all done in the open: from Epstein’s Lolita Express, to Israeli war crimes, to advocacy of Zioncon global conflicts and plans for an ‘New American Century.’ The UK chief rabbi’s call for Brits to turn their backs on their opposition party is not exactly a conspiratorial clandestine move, it is actually mainstream news in Britain this morning. There are no Jewish conspiracies, what happens takes place in front of our eyes but we cannot discuss it because Jewish power, as I define it, is the power to suppress criticism of Jewish power.”

    Hacking Democracy [HBO Documentary] (2006) (1:21:58)

    The film the voting machine corporations don’t want you to see. HACKING DEMOCRACY follows investigator/grandmother, Bev Harris, and her citizen-activists as they set out to uncover how America counts its votes. Proving the votes can be stolen without a trace culminates in a duel between the Diebold corporation’s voting machines and a computer hacker – with America’s democracy at stake.

    Best regards,

    P.S. I would never trust someone like Alex Jones for many years now, who talks in Double Speak like Donald Trump does, not unlike what George Orwell wrote about in his book 1984.

    I thought the article about Palantir was excellent, just for the record.

    • ticop says:

      Comments don’t reflect impact. Truth seldom applause. War is a Racket, probably not a New York Times bestseller (speculation on my part), but relevance nearly a century later can’t be understated.

  7. justsaying says:

    Dear James
    Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE comment on the recent elections in Brazil and the victory of Lula(“left”)? Supported by the most corrupted and mercenary TV station Rede Globo? And by all those fu**ing rich, white, celebrities “pro-vaccine pro-black pro-women pro-poor pro-lgbt pro-trans pro-climate change pro-war/jugment/blood/violence of anyone who disagrees and pro-bullying of any pro-choice free-thinker alive?
    Are elections even a true thing? Or it’s all staged?
    Thank you!

  8. HomeRemedySupply says:

    Meet Smedley Butler (2010) really strikes an emotional chord for a mature audience.

    I think that Butler’s energetic passion, his unswerving dedication to the humanity of man resonates with all of us at Corbett Report.
    In my eyes, this is what it means to be human.

  9. apkt says:

    Its no wonder this was and is a popular video.
    With the innocuous title of ‘Meet Smedley Butler’ you might assume its going to be a dreary episode about another cog in the New World Order machine. Instead, it lays bare the whole stinking Globalist / New World Order plot for all to see.

  10. 2-D Chess Dweller says:

    Dear James and Brock,

    Firstly, I was unaware that there was a new video for this. I thought it was just the original. I can see that Brock has done an excellent job of adding new visuals to the original episode.

    Secondly, thank you for the acknowledgment.

    You state that as a creator one cannot be sure as to whether a piece of work will connect with an audience. Some beautiful creations do not receive the air beneath their wings, while other maybe/maybe-not creations soar. Fair call.

    However, this had to succeed. You have the most decorated US Marine in history turning into a peacenik and recognizing that he has been serving as the muscle for US corporations, and to cap it off he exposes a fascist plot in the 1930s in the US. How can this NOT fly?

    It is because of these elements that make the story so important, and thus easy to “spruik”. Or to put that another way, it is easy to sell a good product.

    Thank you, Brock, for adding graphics to elevate this classic episode. It flies again!

    Alex Jones/CNN video at the DailyMotion link doesn’t work 🤔. I couldn’t find any other that would either… anyone have a working link, I’d like to see that.

  12. 2-D Chess Dweller says:

    The US Marine Corp University has details of Ol’ Gimmlet Eye’s actions and awards. The USA Navy even named a destroyer after him, which was news to me, the US Butler.


  13. 2-D Chess Dweller says:

    James, to reinforce your point of never knowing what will resonate with people, my most read article remains “to this day” one on the Dutch farmer protests. It’s a little “off topic” for me. It took only a day to research. But there it stands.

    So, yep. Ya just dont know. 🙂
