    “Hashgraph” – ?Announcement? Tuesday evening 3/13/2018
    Website –
    Website states: The Future of Decentralized Technology

    Anarchist Mike Maloney explains…

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      At this point, as far as I can tell: Hashgraph sucks.
      Other Corbett members had warned me.
      I was hoping that the Hashgraph guys might release something “open source” and “decentralized”.

      Is this like a new era “Microsoft” corporation?

    Readers and guest might wish to look at Ecuador, the first country in the world to actually adopt digital currency, bitcoin excluded.

    The idea was to have the Central Bank of Ecuador run the scheme, but the Consulta or referendum handed the whole toy to the private banks.

    Many believe Ecuador will be the first country to phase out dollars (with the help of the US, for Ecuador is dollarized), just like Modi is trying to do with India’s money, in favor of digital currency.

    We know that if this happens, we will be devaluated at least 30% as the vehicle will be one to steal

    Jay here with the Fluoride Action Network (FAN). Let us know if you’d like an interview to discuss the TSCA fluoride case in detail.

  4. HomeRemedySupply says:

    We can shape the conversation.

    …We help to shape the course of these types of events. If your reaction to a story like this is to is just to shrug and go “Oh, the courts are rigged and nothing is going to happen.” Then, yea, nothing will happen.
    But if people bring attention to this. And make this an issue. And put this in front of people’s face.
    And make this the BIG ISSUE EVERYONE NEEDS TO TALK ABOUT ALL THE TIME instead of school shootings or whatever…
    …We can shape the conversation.

    YES! Let’s USE cryptos, and while I am about it I want to mention my favorite at present FLASH Is designed for the enormous numbers of people such as the Indians and Africans who have no banking facilities or any hope of having a bank. It is super fast and super to use, costing only a penny to transit funds! It also seems to be insome wasy like Monero – so I suppose that means it is very private.

    Once Indians and Africans start to get into cryptos this is likely to be a favorite along with Ethereum I guess?

    Thank you both for this important discussion; posted far and wide and again and again.

    I just love you James Corbett.

    Fluoride’s Toxicity

    I would like to mention that many people, including Fluoride Activists, often underestimate the potential toxicity of Fluoride. I, too, once downplayed its potential toxicity.
    However, the more one studies the issue and the research, the more a person understands how insidious this toxic substance is. It can be a slow poison which wrecks the body’s health system in any number of ways.

    I encourage people to visit F.A.N.
    Fluoride Action Network also known as FluorideAlert.Org
    There is a plethora of information on that website including some wonderful videos.

    Type “Fluoride” into The Corbett Report‘s “Search Bar” and one will see many past episodes where Fluoride is discussed.

  7. Octium says:

    So True.

    Even the word “Fluoride” is deceptive when used the way it is. Fluoride being an ion, means that it is going to form compounds with other elements to create a whole different range of completely different chemicals all labeled as “Fluoride” each one having different effects.

  8. VoltaicDude says:

    Broze and Corbett – always good!

    Nice that you bring emphasis to the complex reality of alt-currencies and Bitcoin-hype as described in a recent Corbett video Derrick:
    1) Yes, Blockchain is truly revolutionary
    2) Yes, Blockchain is Tulip-mania 2.0
    3) Yes, crypto-currency is a nail in the coffin of bankster tyrants
    4) Yes, digital currency is a tool of totalitarian tyrants

    All these is true at the same time, but as James says: “The conversation is stuck on stupid” so when simplistic narratives reign, it’s important to deconstruct those lies.

    You guys are trailblazing for the future.

    James, your Uber analogy is also important:
    ”Well, ‘dear mayor, I’d like to propose [!]’…no, you just do it…and people use it…and then they have to go and start banning it…and it’s unbannable because people are using it too much.

    It’s a good and valid example.

    I guess it’s the other side of the kind of example made of Ross Ulbricht (Silk Road), who competed with bigger and badder monopolists. But he also made a huge mark and in that way has made an important difference in raising consciousness.

    As just another nameless number (as Dr. Zhivago’s brother might describe me), it is disconcerting that the vast majority of individuals that rise up from the sheeple masses (the ranks from which most of us originate) will be picked off without note. Unfortunately we end up being the examples that the average sheeple takes to heart. I can’t help but regret that.

    More power to you two. I hope lots of people tune into your new book Derrick and find it helpful.

    Regarding persona, I really like this:
    Alan Watts – Energy From The Universe
    Danny Lee

  9. Octium says:

    I do think as part of the dumbing down process people have been conditioned into thinking in terms of ORs rather that ANDs.

    In other words, a truth has to be either a OR b, but never a AND b!

    Once you get people to think like that it is really easy to fool them. You only need to convince them that something is “a” and they will never even think about the “b” case.

    I guess this applies to crypto too.

    • manbearpig says:

      Yes. A very insightful Italian friend explained that to me once when I wasn’t listening carefully enough. He said this “or” state of mind instead of “and” was institutionalized some time after parminedes and before or by plato. Can’t quite remember…he said this was the moment when man set out on the path of his destruction.

    • john.o says:

      This is all true and not true. Most of us have long known that knives and guns, and for that matter knitting needles and nuclear energy, can be used to help us, threaten us or kill us. What I note is that all these are still used for those purposes, but OVER TIME, their power to threaten tyranny is either mostly displaced and rendered ineffective against it (the knife, and now the personal gun too, for example) by the power of the tyrant.

      All of them (except maybe knitting needles, and I am not ready to declare even those 100% benign) are used every day to enforce tyranny.

      I certainly encourage everyone to use whatever weapon gains advantage at the moment, but to think that crypto is going to do anything other than provide another “New World” of freedom, which rapidly then grows into just another colony in the Empire, seems naive to me.

      “Crypto” so far is always “digital,” and electronic, and depends on the powers of the digital and energy tyrants everywhere, not to mention the tyrannies of “The Market” itself, which seem to be ignored here in some kind of fervor, but to that extent, so is history.

      Good luck, though. I invest only in human flesh and blood, and since slaves and the markets (same thing so far in history) are prohibitively expensive these days, that means mostly my own.

      Unfortunately, in the world of “subjective value” there is wide variance between the market value of my flesh and blood and its value to me.

      Neither crypto nor wishful thinking will change that.

  10. Thank you for this video discussion between the two of you. It helped to understand the practical application for digital/crypto currency, however I must agree that the process for implementing this method of currency transaction can be a bit off-putting during the process of establishing an “account”, somewhat confusing. And a personal concern of mine would be that should something go wrong, in an unmentionable number of ways, there would seem to be no support/accountability, in reversing a payment transaction gone wrong. Or in the event of theft, for example.
    How well is a ‘wallet’ really protected?

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Back in late February 2017, James Corbett gave away free to any Corbetteer requesting it, 0.01 Bitcoin (which at the moment I am now typing is worth around $81.)
      At the time of the give-away, it was worth close to $10 or $11.
      The give-away occurred during this episode Who Coined the Term “Useless Eaters”? – Questions For Corbett
      If you read the comment section, a lot of folks participated in that opportunity.

      Here is the YouTube video queued to where James talks about Bitcoin. Around the 21 minute mark is the “give-away”.

      Like Corbett repeatedly points out, just start by trying a small amount of cryptocurrency. Something that you can afford to lose.
      I keep my wallet at my exchange(s). However, my ex-wife who is almost 70, bought a nano flash drive wallet, but she put a lot of dough into crypto. I am poor, plus I am a risk taker, but I don’t have much to lose with my crypto.

      The original intent of Bitcoin and many cryptocurrencies was to have a decentralized method of exchange by using a token. With all the hype last December in the rapid rise in value of Bitcoin, it’s original purpose as an “exchange medium” got polluted by speculation.
      Some companies take Bitcoin (e.g. ). When many companies start taking “decentralized” crypto, then we will probably see a revival of the original purpose.

      Unfortunately, the government is often trying to regulate or monitor some of these “exchanges”, such as Coinbase. The IRS is now watching for speculators on Coinbase. And also, unfortunately, corporations are trying to hijack the decentralized token game.
