    At 32:30 an interesting moment:

    “The worst part is that people associate that.. anytime they hear ‘oh, you know this big banking institution is testing out their blockchain,’ people have been associa.. eh.. TRAINED to associate that with Bitcoin, with the idea of this decentralized.. The structure that really can in every facet replace the banking system, completely remove the need for this system as we know it.”

    The last part doesn’t address the fact that Legal Tender laws (real problem) will still be in effect, placing BC under the Central Bank’s authority. But never mind.

    Notice the insertion of “trained”.
    Think we’re gonna hear a lot more of this “the people are stupid/trained/conditioned” Bitcoin talk.

    Unfortunately for Bitcoin aficionados, there already existed a fair amount of skepticism in the sound money community, and it had little to do with “people being trained” to associate BC with the banksters.

    Listen to this spirited exchange between Bitcoin pusher Mr. Molyneux and Peter Schiff:

    Cheers from Amsterdam,

  2. Richard Ran says:

    While my initial comment awaits moderation, I’d like to point out a similarity in discourse about people not accepting the Bitcoin sell and people not accepting the PC/MC mass immigration sell: those people must be a) stupid, all because of b) brainwashing by ze media.

    So at 32:30 there’s this people are being manipulated (“trained”) meme to explain BC skepticism. Basically, people who stray from or won’t accept the right path are unable to think for themselves, or so it seems.

    Thank you for putting some images in the video. They do help follow the subject matter.

    I like seeing Corbett on these other Alternative Media outlets. This is important for a number of reasons, one of which is that each media outlet has its own type of audience. This brings wider exposure to many of the topics (e.g. anarchism) which Corbett discusses.

    I know that some members got a little ruffled when Sean Stone interviewed James Corbett. (Sean had a show, Buzzsaw, which interviewed all types of characters, some of which might had been a little loopy in the head or “really out there”.) So what. I say again “So what”. It was the message which was important. And James got to reach a wider audience.

    I believe…

    1) China is using North Korea as a sort of buffer proxy to keep Uncle Sam at Bay, or
    2) Uncle Sam is using North Korea as a sort of proxy to keep China in line


    Regarding Nord Stream 2

    I really do believe these sanctions are just a backhanded way for the US to target Germany and the EU (not so much Russia). So I hope the EU does pivot towards Russia and China, quits NATO and create their own EU defensive alliance


    Regarding BRICS and the emerging Multipolar World Order

    James maybe right, it may just turn out to be an extension of the IMF and World Bank, however the way the US is aggressively targeting countries that aren’t under the IMF and World bank umbrella of control kinda makes me think this can’t all be theater.


    BitCoin is being pushed by Goldman Sachs…need I say more?

    Jim Marrs passed away today (August 2, 2017)
    Joe, the Founder of the “North Texans for 9/11 Truth” Group has been keeping in touch with associates of Jim Marrs, because Jim has been ill. Jim lives in the North Texas area. He has been ill for a month or two, mostly confined to bed rest. Jim has helped “North Texans for 9/11 Truth” with many past events. A very personable, down to earth, likable guy with a compassion for humanity. A wealth of knowledge. And he loved sharing it.

    Here is an InfoWars video.

    • PeaceFroggs says:

      Joyce and now Jim, sad day. Heard the man from Marrs for the first time when Alex Jones had him on as a guest, later enjoyed listening to him on Rense radio.

      I always had a feeling he knew just a bit more about the JFK assassination than he was willing to talk about.

      That remote viewing is a crock of sh.t though, anyways…life goes on, someone will/has pick up where he left off.

    • generalbottlewasher says:

      Homey Supply: sorry to hear about Marrs. He exemplified all that anyone needed to know about being Texan. Thought, Speech, Attitude ect ect. No jokes, he was authentic . His passing will be felt far from Texas.
      Also for the Froggs with less Piece of mind . You may change your mind by reading the work and studies done by Hal Puthoff on remote viewing. You too can learn how and become capable at some level. Seems any human has the capability. Hard to argue a ‘crock full’ with the science that’s out by others, like ,Ervin Laszlo, Rupert Shaledrake ,Jim Fears(?).Check it out you might find those keys you lost.

      • PeaceFroggs says:


        Like a semi-feral horse who’s blinders have been removed, my intuition is pretty darn good if not great, and I know there is more than meets the eye so to speak when it comes to this 3D 5 senses world, believe me I know, I’ve personally experienced it, but like I said earlier, I’ve listened to Marrs on Rense radio, and this remote viewing stuff is complete bullshit.

    Hola aloha digital buddy nosoapradio y amigo Croata mkey,

    I saw your both anti-semtic comments on señor James I-page and amigo mcei you are a Croat so I’m not surprised, hi hi hi just kidding amigo.

    For my person Zionists are psychopaths just like politicians and socialists, because Zionism is a political organisation and not a religion like Judaism or the other 2 Abrahamic religions Islam and Christianity. But an amount of leaders of these 3 Abrahamic religions behave and act like psychopaths.

    Now an amount of people, will consider my person as an anti-semite and/or anti-christian or/and anti-muslim because of my the above-mentioned pronunciation. And amgio Tejano (Texan) HRS I don’t know the exact percentage hi hi hi, but I don’t give a Rat Ass about their opinion on me in this.

    The Zionist state Israel is like each state for my person illegal (copy /paste) and just when I thought the Israelis couldn’t possibly cram any more items into an already overflowing repertoire of preposterous behavior, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper recently ran a piece titled “Anti-terror Fantasy Camps Are Popping Up Throughout Israel and the West Bank – and Tourists Are Eating It Up”.

    Holiday in style at Israel’s ‘anti-terror fantasy camps’

    Those Zionists are not only physically circumcised but mentally also just like each psychopath.

    Saludos, Shalom & Salam Aleicum,

    Pablo de Boer

    • Pablo de Boer says:

      Barack Obomber is as we know a psychopath, mass – & Child murderer. His Vice President Joe Bidden is also a psychopath and Joe B. self proclaims that he is also a Zionist, so he is double mentally handicapped..

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      You are a wondrous beautiful being!
      Thanks for being you!

      (You are in the top 2% and I know you don’t give a Rat’s Ass despite your prejudices against Psychopaths.) 😉

      • Pablo de Boer says:

        Hola aloha amigo Tejano HRS,

        You also muchas gracias for being an authentic bellisimo being with Tejano influences. And I mean this 100%, because this how I feel in mi corazon / my heart and these feelings are not prejudicially but 100% natural and my feelings are also without psychopathic intervention mi amigo Tejano HRS.

        Saludos & C U Later alligator on señor James I-page,

        Pablo de Boer

        And amigo Tejano HRS how you Tejanos say goodbye????

    • mkey says:

      My antisemitism comes from the fact I don’t view jewish victims as any more important than victims from any other provenience.

      Palestine should have terror camps in Gaza, they would be a lot more authentic.

    Canadian billionaire, Jeff Skoll, made his first billion as president of eBay… a position he was hired for straight out of Stanford business school. What’s he up to these days?

    Do you dare to question climate crisis?
    Do you suspect mainstream media may contain traces of propaganda?
    Does the collapse of building 7 raise any concerns?

    You just might be a stoopid Trumper………

    How many more days before the reality-show-actor-in-chief is publically tarred and feathered? Moving forward, only a stoopid, racist, crude, baseball hat wearing, pussy grabbing, unedumacated red neck would dare to question our media gods.

    Let us hold hands and utter the magic words:

    Hope, change, belief, democracy, faith in “science”, religious freedom…… etc. ad nausem

    • Richard Ran says:

      Hi m.clare

      Will the actor-in-chief also be tarred & feathered for the impending economic collapse?

      Here’s an article I found on Activist Post a while ago that might interest you:

      “I have been warning since long before the election that Trump’s presidency would be the perfect vehicle for central banks and international financiers to divert blame for the economic crisis that would inevitably explode once the Fed moved firmly into interest rate hikes.”

      Cheers from Amsterdam,

      • wingsuitfreak says:

        Oh yes, Activist Post. And from there I went to Waking Times and Jon Rappaport’s newsletters. I love how all the different perspectives clash with each other as they find their own little niches in my mind.
        But on this video, I was not worried about the economics of things. When the currency collapses, there will still be goods and services as before. We will simply find a new way to conduct our transactions in them. Will they be centralized or de-centralized? I have no idea, nor do I really care about things that I cannot know. I do know of what I need to both survive and thrive; and that is what I concern my self about. So, I truly have no real opinion on bitcoin, or whatever other currency idea is being floated.
        I would like to address the AI question that James posed. Is it something we should be concerned about? Probably not. True, they will make advances in mind reading and the like. They are probably further along in that than we know. But, that won’t be the end all of free thought. I have heard recently that old-time beekeepers (who didn’t tell me when I had need to know!) would picture an octagon in their minds when they approached their beehive. Apparently, they claimed it would cause the bees to be less interested in stinging them. Whether this is due to some psychic connection or the easing of the tension in the human body causing the bees to view you differently is a different story. However, the point is that we do have the ability to control our thoughts to a far greater degree than we are led to believe. So, that technology won’t be the end game for free thinking.
        But, to keep you on edge; there is no need for AI to become a terminator to keep you worried. A simple killbot doesn’t need that kind of programming. So don’t worry about AI, worry about what we have today. Hope that makes everyone feel safer now. Jim, still out-running the face eating zombies of Fluoride-a!

    If you look at the satellite picture of the Korean Peninsula which Dumsfeld is showing at about time 17.30 you can see clusters of light off the east and west coasts of South Korea. There is an “island” of light off the west coast and a much larger cluster of light off the east coast in an area where there don’t seem to be any large cities or ports. Are all of these lights (with apparently the same brightness as the lights being emitted from Seoul) coming from ships or fishing boats in the Yellow Sea and the Sea of Japan?
    Also, if you look at the bottom right of the picture, there don’t seem to be any lights coming from Japan. In fact, Japan appears to be as dark as North Korea.
    Any ideas: What is this picture really showing?
