    The guard story reminded me of another use for them. Misdirection of another sort. A friend of mine once confessed he was upset while stationed in Bosnia during their troubles. He said they had security set up with huge gaps that encouraged people to use them. He just thought the Army was stupid. While I didn’t correct him (we had 3 of the who would build the roads conversations in which he stated the same basic questions each time. Even denying the fact that government doesn’t build the roads, so why bother.) It allowed the US to say it had security, while smuggling its own elements around them. However, at least we agreed on one thing. The Army is stupid.

    In closing, James says:
    “Food for thought.
    How do you like them apples?”

    Oh! I loved the anecdote about Antoine-Augustin Parmentier, his hosted elite dinners, and especially the potato guards.
    Clever marketing.

    Corbett tells a good story…
    Look at how the train of thought flows in “How Did Potatoes Get So Popular? – #PropagandaWatch”, and where it eventually lands.

    reminds me of that video-document called: ‘the diamond empire’. A 1994 frontline docu on created scarcity and value of diamonds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDfs54uwG9w

    • Duck says:

      9tH
      I saw a movie https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/11_Harrowhouse from the 70’s that talked about the artificial created scarcity of diamonds years before- if I recall right the vault was mainly to store diamonds in to keep them out of the market and hold the price up.
      If i recall right the movie started with some non cartel smugglers getting blown up…. funny how fiction covers issues that most media is not interested in. Pretty rubbish movie though

      • 9tH says:

        Thanks Duck, for the link. I scrolled over some stills, i sometimes spend more time checking for specifics in the decors than watch the movie, because some directors love to leave hints for those who know to see them. (JJ Abrams is a very good example, J.J Abrams Hidden Hermetic Themes of Lost, Fringe, Alias & Star Trek https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE9MqcrsNyc One of the better channels looking for the occult in movies, architecture and city-design etc, imho).

        On the artificially created shortages made up to boost the price, i saw several videos in which the same was said about crude oil, more specifically, it not being a limited fossil fuel supply, but it a product of bio-chemical reaction within earth’s crust. cfr Fletcher Prouty.

        I never heard of ‘half-made crude oil’ tbh.. are there any in between stages in its development? think not.

        • Duck says:

          ‘.. never heard of ‘half-made crude oil’ tbh…’

          Well, I do know that that coal can be formed really rapidly (in a matter of weeks) in a lab from wood under certain conditions but the only people doing that kind of work are generally young earth creationists who’s agenda tends to exclude them from main stream science . I have zero idea if its possible with oil.

    Though somewhat different, who is ultimately behind the popularity of kale is still unknown. “Before 2012, rumor has it that the biggest buyer of kale was Pizza Hut, who used their leaves as décor along their salad bar.”

    https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-22984/the-strange-mystery-of-who-made-kale-famous-and-why.html

    Many articles have attributed kale’s popularlity to a small PR-firm in NYC called My Young Auntie, headed by one Oberon Sinclair, but the group that hired her, the American Kale Association is a mysterious group, with no contact information or connections with other food producers, according to the above article.

    http://www.americankaleassociation.com/

    Gotta make you wonder…

    • Duck says:

      I love kale…its great as a bread replacement for roll ups (some alfafa sprouts, cheese and some mayo…) but NEVER eat it while in danger of vomiting from a stomach bug. 🙁

      My understanding is that its a mild enzyme toxin like rhubarb and while its healthy too much mike not be so good for you.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      • wanderer says:

        Thanks, HRS. Haha, haven’t tried kale that way yet! It may happen one day. But I did splurge for a bidet a couple of years ago. Life-changer. But the EMF that comes from the motor to spray and warm the water is incredibly high… and one’s kidneys will be exposed… so the search continues… kale?

  6. Duck says:

    Questions for Corbett…. what did you cook with the potato? LOL, just kidding.

    Its a cool story … my mom told me this one BUT that the Prussian king pulled the trick- she was kinda Kraut-centric in her thinking.
    The thing about using monkey brain controls over people is that they must be reduced to monkey levels of self control- no one imagined that people who didnt have self control could actually run a republic or be free hence the general propaganda as to the low levels of self control in black slaves and poor people to justify ruling over them.

    The thing is people without self control really DO need to be kept in line, by scarcity or by force, which is interesting in that levels are likely lower now then at any time in human history- dopamine slavery thru Sugar, internet, and porn have really produced people who are like the brave new world mantra which went something like “adult at work Infant at play”
    The ‘new man’ is a slave to those who control his internet feed and vices. People eventually get bored with being afraid but they never get bored of pleasure.

  7. Jed says:

    Great episode. I have to look up that seven years war, and more info on the potato — that’s going to thread out to all sorts of cool stuff.
    On that CFR clip, Lone Simonsen said all health care workers should be vaccinated as they owe it to their patients. Along this line of logic, if a health care worker thinks there to be any dangers associated with said vaccines, and there are as statistics show, or thinks said vaccines (flu) to be ineffective as they are year after year and statistics bear this out as well, then health care workers owe it to their patients to keep ‘em away from it like you would rat poison.
    The flu vaccines worked well on me. — got sick as hell a few days after, both times administered. Although flu-like symptoms, the expert (Dr) said it’s impossible to get the flu from the vax. That was years ago when I’d been told it mandatory for work, or as they were saying on that CFR clip, it was “mandated”, good word, like what happens in prison, potatoes for supper then off to the showers, you’re gettin’ mandated.

    • I Shot Santa says:

      My grandparents were the only ones in my family who got their yearly flu shots. Also, the only ones who ever got the flu. Right after their shots. Also, no matter what we all said, they continued. Never saw the connection. Belief in authority over you is a hard habit to break.

      • Jed says:

        Or a belief that others have the same empathy and morals, can’t believe others would harm them.

        • I Shot Santa says:

          Exactly! The perfect sheeple mindset. Which leads to where we are today. Troops coming to your city soon! And why I view sheeple as an insult. Their inability, and outright refusal, to see clearly is why we have this blasphemous covid dictatorship now. I don’t exclude the riots from that. Part of the same package.

  8. victoria says:

    perhaps in the 18th century potatoes were a contributing factor for some folks getting sick. a number of years ago i eliminated ’em & all nightshades from my diet b/c of food sensitivity, not uncommon for ppl with autoimmune condition.

    • Duck says:

      Victoria
      Thats an interesting idea but I would have thought those who were ‘naturally’ sensitive would have died off rapidly, the way gin went thru the working classes like a crack epidemic.
      I suspect that other factors are behind the increased sensitivity and rash of auto immune sicknesses hitting people right now

      • victoria says:

        hear ya Duck, ive no doubt there’s many factors, a ton of ’em… that said, i believe genetics play a role, & that death isnt necessarily an obvious outcome of sensitivity. so i found this interesting…

        During a famine in 1782, Scottish highlanders complained of dropsy (an old term for edema or swelling, often associated with congestive heart failure) when they ate abundantly of potatoes. Russian prisoners of World War II returned with advanced cases of dropsy, which was blamed on heavy potato consumption. An old saying in New Hampshire in 1719 was that the white potato shortened men’s lives.

    Hi Corbett Community:

    I know this is off-topic, my apologies. But what do you think of all the looting and stuff being portrayed in the media? How about all the anti-Trump MSM stories and the narrative of racism being the motivator for looting, sort of justifying it? I think there are likely agitators trying to stir the pot and cause a race war, but it’s hard to ignore the fact that there are some dangerous people, regular “citizens” who are violent and just want to steal and loot and who may pose a significant threat to my safety. I’m not saying the state does not also pose a threat, but it’s more complex than that, I think.

    I hate the police state and I also hate the willingness of people to take advantage of a situation to commit violence against innocent people. How could a voluntarist community exist without violence, I wonder. I guess people would have to be armed and protect themselves, with deadly force if necessary.

    In the absence of state and that paradigm/ way of existing, would more innocent people be harmed especially considering that there are gangs that are heavily armed, perhaps more so than people who are in voluntarist communities?

    It seems there would have to be a shift in minds and hearts of forgiveness and cooperation. It just seems like “regular” Americans, I mean the everyday people who just follow along (the “normies”) would be an enemy. I guess I am very disappointed in people for not questioning this COVID
    scam and also disappointed in the tendency to take out aggression small business owners and people who have nothing to do with systemic racism.

    I know there is a certain percentage of psychopaths in society and they are not limited to Bill Gates and George Soros types. How do we create a better world if we are working against their agenda and also have to contend with all the other violent psychopaths and followers?

    • flammable says:

      I think the looters and rioters are very lazy. Carpool, get some money together and travel the extra distance to a wealthy not wealthier neighborhood. Maybe where a politician or banker lives. Destroy and rob those neighborhoods if you must. If law enforcement retaliates the majority of the country will be on your side. As oppose to having everyone turn on you for destroying local businesses who have little money or power.

      Voluntarist communities would also include the current system force upon us. People can still freely recreate that community. I think the two largest communities will be the current system and similar community without the bureaucracy and red tape. But there will be many communities you can go to without risk of starvation.

      • Duck says:

        ‘… Maybe where a politician or banker lives. ..’

        Cant rob the boss’s house… the organizers are without doubt getting bankrolled to hit certain areas. It costs money to have this kind of thing blow up in multiple places at once

    • I Shot Santa says:

      If we just eliminated all laws and everyone was armed, we’d have a short uptick in violence at first, but that would settle down pretty quickly. Afterwards, we’d have a very polite society. Law has always been a tool to maintain the status quo. Not saying we’d be violence free, but it would seem that way compared to today. How do I know this? Because I grew up in rural south Georgia where the law wasn’t welcome. Not saying it was perfect, but it was a lot better in many ways. The KKK was still prevalent, but no society is perfect. Not saying the law didn’t affect our actions either. It usually just reinforced our smaller selves.

      • debra.b says:

        And, what good are laws when they don’t truly help the people? Most police, judges, lawyers are corrupt or easily corrupted or complicit through fear. And, that’s to say nothing of the most corrupt criminals in the FBI, CIA, etc…

        Like all those cases that had good investigators and then they get handed over to the FBI or CIA and they shut down the investigation because too many of them are involved in the crimes…drug/arms smuggling, child/human trafficking, murders, etc… you all know. The people really don’t have real protection when you drill it down. I mean going to court for something is like gambling because you better hope you get a decent judge and find a decent lawyer. Otherwise, forget it. You’ll just lose no matter what. Even if you’re completely truthful and innocent. Lawyers know it’s a racket. That’s why it doesn’t matter how crooked or criminal they are. In fact, those crooked ones win much more because they’re so good at playing the game.

        • I Shot Santa says:

          Yes. Our government was never more transparent than when they renamed the justice Department the Criminal Justice Department in the 90s. Brian, over on high impact flix/vlog just uploaded a video showing Boston cops unloading bricks for the rioters. Justice comes when people learn what that 2nd amendment really means. I personally don’t believe that we shouldn’t use force against the state. It’s what the state is, and all it understands. I like to make sure I’m understood. Just don’t be stupid about it. I can say that cops are idiots for thinking they won’t suffer repercussions for their actions. They can’t even understand that people film them and spread the real message. That cops are scum. Won’t be long before they become targets for those with the cajones to fight for liberty. I know, we’re all supposed to just put out loving vibes into the ether and it’ll all be better, but I gots no love to give Nazis.

    • manbearpig says:

      I actually hadn’t heard about all that until my Spanish teacher asked me about it last Sunday night and she proposed an article in Spanish to chat about.

      Since then I’ve basically been telling all my English students who’ve invariably been asking me about it that it’s a pretext for proving that the police and military are overwhelmed so we have to have contact tracing technology to manage so much unruly violence, protect people and keep the peace.

      At least it gets them talking.

        Spain & Clint Eastwood
        You mentioned Spain and it triggered my fingers.
        Shooting Sergio Leone’s 1964 “Fistful of Dollars” in Spain as opposed to Italy was 25% of the cost! It cost just over $200,000 to make that film.

        Eastwood got paid $15,000, but Sergio originally wanted actors from “The Magnificent Seven” such as Charles Bronson or James Coburn who scoffed at the idea.
        Clint Eastwood was still playing Rowdy Yates on Rawhide and could not be in any American made film. Europe was okay. Clint wanted to visit Spain and Italy, so took the job. He brought his own Cowboy hat, boots from Rawhide and western clothes which were used in the movie. The poncho they gave him at the set. Eastwood would always take home his wardrobe at night, because there were no spares.

        In the movie, the lines of the actors were mostly spoken in their native tongue. German, Italian, English, Spanish. Later, they would come back and dub the lines. They would also dub in sound devices like wind or horses.
        Eastwood said it was something to get used to during shooting, because off to the side people were chatting and playing frisbee while an actor was saying the lines. Not the “quiet on the set” in America.
        Of note: Sergio shot many facial close-ups. Eastwood intentionally cut out a lot of his own script dialogue. The closeups and muted dialogue created the Clint Eastwood bad-ass image. It ain’t Rowdy Yates in these films.

        A short “Special Features” segment showed the film locations in 2003 or 2005 contrasted to the exact film shot. Completely different. In the 2005 shots some areas were plush green with plenty of water or a park or paved road. None of that dry baron look.

        During the filming, a Catholic Holiday was coming in Spain. Everyone was going to close down. Sergio lied saying his film company was Jewish. He got an exemption to shoot footage on the Holiday which gave him access to another film company’s lift, because that company could not film.

        Sergio wanted a “hanging tree” with a noose for the town as Eastwood rides into the village on the opening shot. Sergio Leone’s crew just goes up to the lawn of a house and cuts down the owner’s tree. The owner comes out and says, “Hey! What are you doing with my tree!?”. The crew tells him that they are with the local Authorities and that his tree posed a hazard as it might fall on someone. The owner shrugged and that was that.

        In the evenings during dinner, I am watching a DVD set of the Sergio Leone Trilogy which has a “Special Features” disc. It takes 2 to 4 nights for me to complete one film. “For a Few Dollars More” is next.

        • debra.b says:

          Oh, man my Dad loved those Clint Eastwood movies!! Didn’t matter how many times he’d seen them he still watched if they were on TV. My Dad also looked quite a bit like Clint Eastwood. My Dad died in 2009, but I still can’t watch those movies. That is very cool that you know all those details. Thanks for sharing HRS! 🙂

        • Jed says:

          “Andalusia with fields full of rain, I want to see you again and again” Door’s tune, “Spanish Carivan.”
          Fields full of rain indeed, and beautiful mountains, landscapes that look like the Badlands but with views of the Mediterranean, towns with more history than an old alcoholic; you can buy olive oil, bread and wine at the local gas stations and it’s better that any top shelf equivalents here in NY,
          and inexpensive too. The people are nice, but they are everywhere I go really and that may be ‘cus where I live people try their best not to be, any way they can get away with it.
          If it weren’t for the dogs and family, I’d still be there.

    • 9tH says:

      anti trump, pro trump.. is all a part of the theatre. He depends on the small town sleeping giant, moms and pops with guns. So he says what appeals to them, not to the ones who dwell in the cities, 2 different worlds. (although i wonder whether mom and pop passed out on oxys meanwhile instead). Apologize my cynicisms.
      But hey, i am no american.
      All i can say is that i have seen several vids of situations where cops, in uniform and in group, take out glass windows. And smash up a police car. Adding to the suspicion that they are using the current situation according plan. which may be: create more chaos so the total martial law can be called for and they finally get to use all the gear they have been givven during the last years.

      And all those black screens today do no good on spreading the newest development neither.

      People are being used so often, for one or the other agenda.
      Being caught up in a storm like that, I can not blame anyone for standing their ground and defending it. I would do the same when someone attacks my home and livelihood i guess. The rioteers should go and eat the rich instead.
      But how a substantial part of the cops behave, needs to be dealt with just as well. Should have happened years ago, long before rodney king. Everytime you get stopped, it might just as well be the last, especially now with all the tension.

      • cu.h.j says:

        9tH,

        I agree with you about the cops. I think they may target people of color and the poor more often, pretty sure of it actually and that’s wrong and should have stopped years ago. I also agree with you about going over to the governor’s mansion or his house and destroying that rather than looting and attacking mom and pop stores.

        I don’t know if you watched videos of the 1992 Rodney King riots where the “roof Koreans” defended their businesses. I kinda liked that actually.

        Having said that, I wouldn’t loot or destroy anyone’s house because I think it’s pointless. I would on the other hand defend myself and my property and loved ones with deadly force if necessary.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        I think that a lot of Americans have resentment towards the police.
        Many, many people have been jailed.
        The marijuana and drug court cases are beyond count.

        Just about every one of my past co-workers has a record.
        The costs, time and hassles they have had to deal with for minor offenses is a nightmare. I heard their stories.
        While the race card is being played with these protests, I agree that it goes beyond that.

        Four or five decades ago, I was a threat to local authorities.
        I was arrested twice and thrown in jail both times, once next to a fella charged with murder.
        Yes sir. I was soliciting door to door without a permit.
        Ya gotta have that permit in order to approach someone and ask them to buy something from you.
        I’m so proud to be a criminal.

        • Jed says:

          Speaking of marijuana, I love these clowns who parade around denouncing “drug” use, referring to pot as a drug, meanwhile swilling their “col beer” and cocktails. More people die every year from eating Romaine lettuce than from any sort of marijuana ingestion. And who dies from marijuana? Nobody. Meanwhile, alcohol kills more people than any other recreational drug. If you want the drugs that kill more than alcohol you’ll have to go to your local expert for a prescription.

    • debra.b says:

      Yes. It is complex. I can’t take it all on as a whole. I can only bring it back to what I’m able to do where I am, with whomever is around me. In my case, that’s my family. I’m not sure right now how we’ll stay safe or survive. I just know we’ll do it together. Be that physically or in spirit with each other. I know I will feel fear. It will be there amongst many other feelings. You’re going to feel what you’re going to feel. I say let the feelings come and let the feelings go. And, they’ll all be back for several more rounds. That’s my opinion. That’s been my experience.

      I’ve said this before, but it always applies as far as I’m concerned. I don’t know what’s in the hearts and minds of the individuals that are out there in the country, in the world. I don’t know their circumstances. I can’t decide for them what’s best to do. It all feels very divided and in many ways I’d say it always has been. Which brings me back again to the individual. I feel this strongly because when I went through the process of bankruptcy and the nightmare process of disability, I was treated as guilty until proven innocent. I was a number. The mere sum of my data. The fact that I’d led the life of an honest, responsible, thoughtful human being was a non factor. I felt certain they’d rather see me dead as opposed to alive and articulate in that court room. To set forth rule without consideration for the individual is cruel. And, that’s what is happening, what has been happening to And, to the extreme these last few months. All along I was worried about the psychological trauma that has been wrought across the world. I knew once the flood gates opened it would not be pretty. People would be hurting. I cannot begin to know how to calm something so intense and massive.

      I’m a gentle natured person. I try to always be honest and kind. I’m in very poor health and I’m trapped on disability. I’ll do my best to survive, but I don’t see any way out of this for me. When I read about the contract tracing and collecting healthcare data, I think to myself, they’ve already got me. I’ve been tracked and traced for years even without a cell phone. And, if they don’t get me, my health certainly will. So, I move on and think toward my family. Their lives are progressing, mine is dissolving. I might as well be there for them. I’ll do whatever I can to help them. That’s what i can be a part of.

      For sure, there are people out there who are better positioned to do something larger. And, I’m grateful that there are. Many of them are likely here in the CR community. I just know I am not one of them.

      When I tramped across the Aubrac plateau in sleet and snow the dish awaiting at the end of the day was often aligot. Aligot, national dish of the Auvergne they tell me, is a kind of fondue made, ideally, by beating the right cheeses into butter-garlicky mashed potato (with cream). To be mopped up with grilled sausage. When in desperate aligot withdrawals, I still make an Australian bush version using what comes to hand.

      There exist people who don’t like aligot. No, really. (Probably all app snitches.)

      I dare say our NWO betters are up for some discreet murder. Why not? It’s getting on to 2021, and they did call their Agenda “21”.

      It’s weird. They can tell us in hard detail what they are about to do – Event 201, Agenda 21 etc – and we are expected, as sober and concerned citizens, to pay respectful attention. Yet if we believe they are doing what they said they would do…we’re nutters!

      Okay, okay…they didn’t say they’d bump us off by ventilator or injection or neglect. But how else were they going to get those numbers down? By endangering themselves with a Duke of Edinburgh virus? What’s the use of stocking a New Zealand bunker with a decade’s supply of Bollinger if you can croak just like any wally?

      Sure, a bit of murder. Why not?

        Okay, ya got me again. My Dad, huge Looney Tunes fan. He always watched those too. My Mom didn’t get it. My son loved them too, my nephew does too. My mom thinks it’s genetic. lol

        This also reminded me of a night my nephews slept over. I had given each of them Looney Tunes throw blankets for Christmas. The packaging had this cardboard insert which had pictures of all the characters. My nephew wanted to make something out of it rather than throw it away. We ended up making a Looney Tunes board game. My nephew came up with most of the ideas/rules for the game. Then we tried it out. It came out pretty well. We had a lot of fun. And, of course I get to send all the stuff home with my sister and they have to all learn the game. Perk of being the Aunt.

        The other day, Sunday I think, when I visited the kids and they were swimming in their pool. I was asking them how things were going and they both had lots to say. 7 and 9 years old they are. Then, after a while of talking. The 9 year old says, “Aunt Debbie, guess what we told mommy is the first thing we want to do when this is all over?” I said, “ Take a trip?” They said, “.No, we want to sleep over and hang out with you and Grandma!” I said,”That’s awesome! I thought you guys were going to say you’re too grown up for that now.” They said, “Nope, no way!”

        They’re so sweet. It makes me happy that they’re still being the great kids that they are, but breaks my heart what they’re going through with all this. Anyway, launched me into a story there. 🙂

    Speaking of Kermit the Frog again, I had wondered if all those years of Microsoft requiring people to enter serial numbers and software registration codes was just a ploy to make people think they were stealing something of value. The end result was to turn your computer into a potato.

    I highly recommend it if you’re a seasoned researcher who has gotten good at detecting B.S., recognizing patterns & reading between the lines.
    The governors inadvertently reveal a lot about the short term and long term agendas outlined in the daily memos they receive and the tele-meetings they attend with Fauci & others.

    Anyway… until the NWO cult turned off the plandemic switch and turned on the riot switch, they were constantly trying to give the impression that big problem — the only real problem — with “testing” is availability.
    The celebrities and essential workers have access to these wonderful “tests” but the general public who ‘desperately wants to get tested’ cannot do so because of the shortage of tests and inadequate number of testing sites.

    Blatant effort to engineer a desire/demand for something that no one anywhere wanted.

    Thought I’d share some good news. Apparently there is a milk shortage (state created of course). But the radio just blurted out that the dairy farmers Association (or something like that) would be donating some 635k gallons of milk to families. Better than dumping it, though it still costs the farmers. Also, I’ve mentioned this before, but high impact flix just put out a video showing Boston cops putting out bricks to help the rioters. It’s his What’s this all about video. App won’t let me link it. Trump claimed we are a country founded on law and order, but he’s wrong. We were founded in blood. And it looks like our likely end. Unfortunately, as America goes, so goes the rest of the world. Our tentacles are that encompassing. Just like the first Rome.

      This is the Twitter guy ( Minto @chill_lesh ) who originally shot the video of cops in an alley.
      Evidently, he took down the video because it might be a “rumor-monger”.

      His thread eludes to the idea that this is the alley leading to the police department, and that the officers were unloading bricks which they likely first found and picked up from around an area where the protest marches could be. The concept is that the cops picked up bricks and brought them back to the PD.

          EXCERPTS (about June 2nd)
          Viral rumors about bricks meant to encourage protest shown to be false

          Social media posts of piles of bricks have gone viral in recent days, with unfounded claims that they are being placed around cities in an effort to foment violence during protests.

          But analysis by NBC News’ Verification Unit found no evidence for such claims.

          Images of piles of bricks across the country have been posted: from a suburb of Minneapolis, to Tacoma, Washington, and San Francisco.

          Video of police in Boston unloading bricks from a vehicle has been viewed millions of times. The person who first posted it has since taken it down, saying she can’t be sure whether it does indeed show officers leaving the bricks at a protest site as she first suggested. That hasn’t stopped others repeating the claim. NBC News’ has now verified the footage shows the police unloading the bricks at the police station.

          PHOTO of Dallas location – script
          NBC News’ Verification Unit geolocated the photos and tracked down the bricks to a Dallas parking lot. They have been there for months, close to a construction site, and can be seen in an image on Google Maps Street View from February…

          …Another post in Frisco, TX asked “Anyone know why these random piles of bricks keep showing up near protest sites??? Someone is funding the rioting.” The local police later put out a tweet saying they’d investigated, the bricks were for a planned construction project, and they’ve been removed.

          Unsubstantiated claims about bricks come as conspiracy theories about efforts to foment protests have spread on social media.

          Bricks have been thrown during some protests, including video that appears to show a police officer being hit by a brick. There is also video that shows a woman who gives back a brick that was handed out by someone from a passing car. She doesn’t know the people in the car and she shouts angrily at them to stop putting people’s lives in danger.

          But there is no evidence that piles of bricks have been strategically placed in U.S. cities to encourage protest violence.

        • HomeRemedySupply says:

          Bottom line:
          Let’s nail down FACTS which can be demonstrated.
          There is NOT (I Repeat “NOT”) a “covert NATIONWIDE organized BRICK pallet CONSPIRACY”.

          I laid it out on this SUB-Thread.

          This “Brick thing”…
          It is RUMOR-MILL TRASH.

          • I Shot Santa says:

            Well okay then. However, how is it difficult to believe, especially noting the cops appear violent towards the peaceful protesters, while doing nothing about looters and rioters? There is certainly enough convincing evidence to convince me, especially as they’ve done so many times. As well as the cops posing as “anarchists” to create a riot in order to crack skulls. Not saying anarchists can’t be violent, but that’s hardly the norm. Whatever norm means anymore. However, war is a confusing activity. Though I don’t see the brick story as a psyop by the state. They are probably freaked out by it and are doing some damage control. Simply too much evidence of brutal cop behavior for them to use the bricks to undermine the narrative of police brutality is a myth. Sorry, this is more like me sorting it out in my head. Thanks.

  19. Noahsark723 says:

    I thought about this tactic brought forth in this episode for the past few days. To put something under guard to encourage people to desire and steal it.

    I felt in someway that it applied in regards to what is happening with the police state op unfolding in America and other places…

    I have been watching all kinds of videos at this bitchute channel were a lot of the street footage is being cataloged:
    https://www.bitchute.com/channel/coronachan/

    So then it dawned on me – the manipulators have weaponized protest and have become masters at it seeing they have been doing this in other countries across the globe for years.

    I always felt that “protest” is a waste of time myself because of the mob mentality that goes along with it among other things…
    The best thing people can do is just go home because all “they” are doing is using the provocateur to insight the rioting and violence to ramp up the situation so that the police state can be rolled out.

    Yield to overcome…

    The real protest lies in refusing to wear a mask, get tested, take the vaccine and so forth and to just go out and open up the economy with or without the governments approval.

    I have seen videos of police lighting there own van on fire, breaking store front windows and if they are doing that HomeRemedySupply, I don’t put it past them to be dropping loads of bricks on corners. I suspect that the brick thing being “rumor mill trash” as you call it, is the mainstream managing the narrative so the fact of these riots being managed and provoked is kept hidden from all of those hooked on the mainstream fear-crack-news.

    Those girls spray painting on the store front could be israeli intel, listen to her voice closely – she sounds israeli. I could be wrong but I don’t doubt it isn’t happening either – think dancing israelis from 911.

    This is a dirty game they are playing…

    • Noahsark723 says:

      … And would add that all protest and protesters are, are matter (clay/putty) in the hands of the social alchemist.

      Maybe this gives some insight into the hidden meaning behind the name “black lives matter” and also “all lives matter.”

        The Great BRICK CANARD and how Conspiracy Realm Folks are duped by the Rumor-Mill

        Canard – Definition – a false or unfounded report, rumor, belief or story. A fabricated report.

        There is nothing “mysterious” about the bricks and pavers.
        Did some protesters find bricks and throw them? Yes.

        This brick rumor-mill is an embarrassment to the alternative media, just like the “God Gene”.

        I have FACT CHECKED documented down to the detail a series of these Brick Rumors on a BRICK FACT CHECK THREAD

        Call out these folks who hype and spread speculative rumors. They are not doing us any favors. They are destructive forces to those of us who want facts.

        • Jed says:

          “Canard” def., good one Hrs, had me looking up a name that sounds similar, “Cunard” and low and behold that was the name of the shipping line that owned and operated the Lusitania. I know it’s a stretch but I was actually gonna try to stretch it over to the White Star Line, but it turns out they were the competition. I do love that Titanic conspiracy though. It should be called the “Olympic” conspiracy, but you can’t pass up the irony of the word “titanic”. It turns out the companies merged anyway. Actually, the conspiracy should be named after the third of the triplets really, “Britannic”.

        • Noahsark723 says:

          HRS,

          Sorry man, I completely disagree with you on this.

          I don’t get any dishonesty from the two kids in the video here:
          https://www.bitchute.com/video/e7G1YkgOuWPp/

          The other video in the above sited video could very well be just a coincidence, but the guy in the video shows that there is no construction going on around and maybe those bricks were there to “fix” the brick sidewalk that is there, maybe… but then again there are multiple reports of this across the country.

          You reference the “god gene” video that James reported on. If I remember correctly James did say that it doesn’t mean that they are not working on something like this but that the particular video he covered was fishy and could be used to discredit the fact that something like that is being worked on. At least that is what I got from it… The other important point was that it was not bill gates in the video as certain people were assuming it was.

          FACT CHECKING? Come on man – that is just part of the mental psy-op to keep up the superstition of authority. Here is a fact checking site for you:
          https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/the-corbett-report/

          Utter bullshit there – and if people took the time to look into the post he references from Corbett’s site they would see that there damn fact checking site isn’t so factual after all.

          After looking over the twitter post you referenced:
          https://twitter.com/SeanJohn1313/status/1267489586508414977

          So we are supposed to blindly believe the Frisco police? Really?

          From reading the thread you will come away with what ever bent you want.
          If you trust the police, then it is false, but if you take the time to read through it all you realize you have to look further into it. Have you? Where are the sources that really pin down your so called fact that it is just “rumor mill news?”

          I understand what you mean by this “Call out these folks who hype and spread speculative rumors. They are not doing us any favors. They are destructive forces to those of us who want facts.”

          Continued…

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

            The two brick paver videos you mention.

            The black kid in the video is in downtown Dallas, my neck of the woods.
            I already addressed him on my thread.

            The first brick paver video is a similar scenario.

            Anyone who has any construction experience knows that pavers or bricks are delivered well before a job.
            This is routine.
            Extremely routine.
            So routine, it is mundane.
            The two people talking in the video clips don’t know what they are talking about…they are trying to get Twitter notice on the Twitter rumor-mill.
            It is not a covert conspiratorial plan by money-laden Antifa groups to have bricks delivered to a protest site.

            No one is gonna tear up a sidewalk, street or edifice, until they are prepared to patch it.

            That said…sure, some protestors may grab those pavers to throw.

            Police Departments and companies soon got wise and started having the pavers and bricks picked up which were orginally there for construction jobs.

            Nothing nefarious about the Brick pallets / stacks.

            Rumor-mill trash-talk which gets perpetuated.
            Read the Twitter feeds which I mentioned…even when confronted with the FACTS, some conspiracy nuts strain hard to believe a conspiracy brick drop-off effort exists, when it is nothing out of the ordinary.

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

            Do you know the Frisco area?
            I do.

            Do you know how much construction is going on this north Texas area?
            I do.

            YOU NEED TO DOCUMENT PROOF positive that those bricks in Frisco (there are two separate accounts – one is NTTA) were deliberately staged in advance for protesters to throw.

            If you can not provide documented proof that those Frisco bricks were deliberately staged in advance by “conspirators”,
            then it is speculation and rumor that you are promoting.

            Frisco is not an area where one would find much, if any, violence during a protest.

            Most people in the Frisco area, especially those familiar with an HOA or construction LAUGH AT THIS ABSURD Brick Conspiracy.
            It is a Brick Canard.

            • Noahsark723 says:

              Thanks for the reply HRS.

              No, I don’t know the Frisco area at all.

              Maybe you are right and I am wrong here on the brick thing, but it is still open for me because the sources you referenced doesn’t convince me. It may be the case for the Frisco bricks that they were there for some construction in that neighborhood – it may not be the case for all of them.

              Either way it is a small detail to a much larger picture, nothing to get hung up on. In the end people are going to see from the perspective that governs their thinking. If they operate from a 2 dimensional mindset, what I call the binary brain, then they will never see the true nature of what is happening because for them to have a conspiracy means to have everyone involved in that conspiracy to be privy to it, and that is almost never the case.

              • HomeRemedySupply says:

                Bottom Line…
                Corbett Report Member scpat made a good summary statement on the Brick Canard.

                “It is something to note.
                We don’t have to jump to conclusions, but we should note these occurrences.”

                Scpat explains “just pointing out a story” is fine.

                However, if we have conjecture, speculation, a theory, suspicions, gut feelings or hypothesis, we should at least label them for what they are. Ideally, we should provide sources for supporting our theory.

                Climate Change Advocates do this canard twist all the time.
                Example: A tornado touches down in Texas. “Oh no!…manmade climate change caused it.”

          (Continued on from post that needs to be approved, give it some time)

          Sometimes people are just mistaken, so be it. We all make mistakes and everyone should allow themselves and others to do so and learn from the error, especially when it comes to this kind of research where we are trying to unpack a highly organized multi-layered deception. On the other hand there are agents out there who profess to tell the truth but use it to deceive by mixing in lies, alex jones is one example among many that does this. They are the people we need to look out for. But if you think that you are going to get all the facts and have the whole thing polished for who those are ignorant of this agenda and wake them up with it, you being delusional because people wake up when they are ready to. You can have everything in order, all the facts as they are and still many will choose to ignore it.

          In the end all we can do is our best to sus out what is going on here and if you ask me, you haven’t looked deeply enough into this issue (not that it matters all that much because it is just one small piece of a larger puzzle, take it or leave it) and have been taken by those who want the public to believe that what is going on out there is organic and not being managed, supplied and funded from those in government when it comes to this brick issue.

      I utterly agree with you, Noah. I feel that the only real protest is a general refusal of following their rules. This is what I am trying to do, although I also feel that unless many people do the same, we will be crushed sooner or later. For example, in my country justice doesn’t work at all. The higher tribunal of Spain doesn’t consider lockdowns, curfew, and things like that as unconstitutional when they CLEARLY go against it.

      Very interesting comment about the hidden meaning behind those slogans! I hadn’t thought about that.

      • Noahsark723 says:

        You’re right, we do need the numbers to make the appropriate changes.

        Governments pretty much are following the plans out of the UN despite what any of their local policies are and are doing what ever they want as long as it falls under the umbrella of the global plan.

        Yeah, when you step back from all of this and learn about the old world secret societies, templars, masons, black nobility (a real important one to know of) and so forth and see how they see and use alchemy it becomes clear. They have always kept themselves beyond the purview of the common consciousness while shaping men’s lives beyond their understanding of what they are really caught up in.

        • amenetusien says:

          Yes, that’s true about local governments and they are clearly following a guideline. The problem are the measures that these are approving without people noticing it. Yesterday I watched a video by a Spanish lawyer who warned us that it was about to be approved a new law for the protection of children and teenagers, which basically will take much more power from parents by the State. The funny thing is that these laws would really seem to be good at first sight, until we realize how disturbing they can be if applied wrong (which will be).

          Oh, I hadn’t seen your comment below and I have listened almost the whole show! It was very interesting stuff and I got nice information to do further research, so thanks for that. Michael Tsarion have written very good articles about secret societies and black nobility. In fact, he was the one who introduced me to deeper layers of most of these topics. Talking about him, I don’t know if you have seen his last Unslaved Youtube video (I have yet to finish it) but I found it really interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4va9RL5hu4Y

          • Noahsark723 says:

            You are more than welcome.

            Thanks for the Tsarion link. I will give it a listen.

            Tsarion used to be one of my favorite researchers until he got hooked by the trump psy-op and was promoting people like ann coulter. He took sides and got mentally caught in the dialectic, started to promote hatred of islam in general. If I remember correctly, there was this one show I was listening to where he even promoted the nation of israel in a rant against islam. After hearing that I stopped listening to him.

            It really was a great disappointment to see. The same kind of shit went on with Henrik Palmgren at Red Ice Creations after Lana came around where they started promoting racist bullshit on their shows.
            They got caught in the psy-op when they were flooding Europe with all of the refugees from the middle east and so forth. A real shame to see happen.

            • amenetusien says:

              Noah, first of all I apologize for my delay. Too busy with work in these days!

              You are welcome. I could manage to listen the whole Unslaved audio and I found it very interesting. There is one topic that he and David touched just superficially and I want to know if you (or anybody reading this) know a good researcher who have written or talked about this: modern life rituals. For example, in the video they talk about the ritualistic aspect of masking, cleaning hands, isolation, and all of what we are experiencing today.

              About getting hooked by psy-ops, I agree with you. Although I have to say that sometimes I feel like there are “two Tsarions”. For example, most of the articles I have read by him don’t attack Islam in a different way that he attacks Christianism or other religions. But then, when you enter to the Unslaved website and see what books or external blogs they recommend, some of these are clearly biased against certain countries or religions.

              About Red Ice, I can’t say much because I only listened to a couple of videos by them, precisely interviewing Tsarion, but I don’t know their career. What I have realized, though, is how many people is getting caught on psy-ops or collective movements in the last times. The rabbit hole has become an entire subterranean labyrinthine megalopolis.

              • Noahsark723 says:

                Amenetusien,

                No, I am not aware of anything on modern life rituals. They may have been talking about the ritualistic nature of all of what they have tricked people into doing. It is as if they are training people to become obsessive/compulsive based on a phobia of viruses.

                I listened to the interview as well, but I feel asleep towards the end, so maybe I missed that part.

                One book that comes to mind if you haven’t read it as of yet is a book by Michael Hoffman called Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare(2001 Ed.):
                https://revisionisthistorystore.blogspot.com/2010/03/michael-hoffmans-online-revisionist.html

                He talks about 2001 being the beginning of a process that will alchemically/psychologically change man into the new transhuman man through occult public ritual and twilight language.

                It is a must read book!

            • Jed says:

              One good thing about Tsarion, he promotes the idea that one should read one’s own cards — although one may be out more a few bucks before learning to do such.

            • amenetusien says:

              I might have missunderstood something, because the Irish accent of Michael when he talks fast is almost impossible for me to understand.

              Thank you very much for this book! He has another couple of books that look very promising, so I will take a look at them.

                https://www.bitchute.com/video/L3g1lissm9PM/

                In it he covers I, Pet Goat II symbolism depicting the destruction of US, the next 9/11 type event, and the coming anti-christ.

                It was up on youtube for 2 hours before they took it down.

              Thanks for the video! It was awesome. I think I have never watched a more disturbing animation than this “I Pet Goat II”. I watched it before going to sleep and what a bad feeling I had!

              Somehow it reminds me the video that The Last American Vagabond used to put at the end of his videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j800SVeiS5I), differences aside.

                You are more welcome!

                Yeah – pet goat is a highly disturbing occult presentation.
                You have to wonder who the guy really is that made it. It is an assumption of course, but I wonder if the people who make things like this are of the actual inner circle of power. Few people have the knowledge of the esoteric occult to make an animation specifically tailored as pet goat is, and the coded message is not just found in that animation, Theology Ed is finding the same coded dates in plenty of other places. It is the same thing with 911 – so many popular culture entrainment pieces made references to 911 prior to the event.

                Yeah, In-Shadow is a good one being a clear representation of the modern psyche in symbolic form, Jungian style!

              First of all, I am reading the book that you recommended me and it is great! Something I like a lot about it is that the author quotes and name authors who are equally interesting. For example, Hoffman quotes this book which is about a topic I have thought many times, my opinion of which is the same than Hoffman’s: “The uses of the artificial constructs of time, calendars and clocks has not been sufficiently studied. Time as now measured is as contrived and scripted as any other feature of the establishment’s system”. The measurement of time is one essential aspect to understand many things about out modern society.

              Exactly, I also wondered the same about the author. We won’t ever know who he is, but he surely knows about occultism. I don’t have the knowledge to judge TheologyEd’s interpretations of the video but lots of them seem undeniable. Yesterday at night I started to watch the full list of videos of “I, Pet Goat II” and it is very interesting.

              By the way, I have just seen your last comment about China’s second wave. Days ago, I thought: “how are they going to make people believe again about this very-likely-fake virus, when epidemiological studies have shown that this “virus” is not more dangerous than a flu?”. Well, I got the answer yesterday: the virus has mutated and is more dangerous than ever. Oh God… bad times. I think I am going to move to Ukraine, because there it seems that people don’t believe in this and streets are full of people and without masks.

                I am glad you like it, Hoffman’s book is a key book when it comes to understanding the nature of the minds and methods of the hidden hand, it is such an important work.

                Time for sure has had a profound effect on the mechanization of man’s life and the effect on the psyche could have been to set the momentum to pushing the human mind into the left side and the disconnect from the right side and whole mind, creating a disconnect from the earth and natural cycles and so forth… Thanks for the link to the book on time!

                TheoEd keeps finding more references, there is this new movie that has a reference to the eclipse/sirius theme in the trailer. There is the message of GET OUT and this new one is YOU SHOULD HAVE LEFT:

                There was that MIT article called “We are not going back to normal,” in that article is a graph and I think that the graph is the schedule they have planned out, maybe they will tweak it as needed:

                This is a full blown psychological operation on the people of the whole planet. They have been running the demoralization of the people for some time now – it really kicked in, in america in the 90’s now they are bringing it into the dehumanization stage. Population culling and the indoctrination into the technocracy. To be transhumanized you first must be dehumanized.

                This Truth Stream video called The Purpose of Disruption covers it from the tech socialization side:

    July, 2020 UPDATE –
    Covid shutdown impact of the potato industry

    COVID Impact – 1.5 Billion Pound Potato Mountain Trapped In Supply Chain

    EXCERPTS
    Nationwide COVID-19 lockdowns led to the collapse of the restaurant industry has disrupted critical food supply chains, such as potatoes, which had nowhere to go. The closings of restaurants, hotels, and catering firms had a chain effect that rippled down the production line to processors and growers, “trapping 1.5 billion pounds in the supply chain,” said Business Insider. Some farmers gave away millions of potatoes to food banks, while others were forced to destroy millions more.
