  1. Thanks for showing video of yourself speaking, and editing in various other images & video bits, even though it’s a radio interview. I appreciate it.

    Yes so much of the history of the Internet has already been lobotomized. The largest causalities won’t be controversial subjects like Sandy Hook, true those subjects will be the most censored however some details will remain on a dark net somewhere. The main casualties will be information caught in the crossfire, IE information that has disappeared because it was hosted on the same site or channel as more controversial information that has been the target of censorship.

    Often the significance of information can’t really be understood until later.

    Thanks for this excellent conversation about an important topic. Somehow I feel there is an elephant in the room, though.

    Just as a testament to the fragility of our historical reality and in response to Miss Cedarstrom’s query about how far back the forgery goes, I’ll post these links:

    “A Crucial Archaeological Dating Tool Is Wrong, And It Could Change History as We Know It
    6 JUN 2018

    One of the most important dating tools used in archaeology may sometimes give misleading data, new study shows – and it could change whole historical timelines as a result…”

    “…The idea of chronologies that differ from the conventional chronology can be traced back to at least the early 17th century. Jean Hardouin then suggested that many ancient historical documents were much younger than commonly believed to be. In 1685 he published a version of Pliny the Elder’s Natural History in which he claimed that most Greek and Roman texts had been forged by Benedictine monks…

    …In the 17th century, Sir Isaac Newton, examining the current chronology of Ancient Greece, Ancient Egypt and the Ancient Near East, expressed discontent with prevailing theories and in The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended proposed one of his own, which, basing its study on Apollonius of Rhodes’s Argonautica, changed the traditional dating of the Argonautic Expedition, the Trojan War, and the Founding of Rome…”

    “Almost everything you thought you knew about history is wrong. The Roman Empire emerged in the late Middle Ages, not the eighth century B.C. In fact, Ancient Rome, Greece, and Egypt as we know them didn’t exist at all. And Jesus lived and died in the 12th century A.D.

    Or so says the New Chronology theory developed by Russian mathematician Anatoly Fomenko.

    Since the 1970s, Fomenko (born in 1945) has been building, refining, and publishing his ideas claiming that the history we all know to be true has been largely fabricated, that centuries upon centuries’ worth of history was either faked by devious scribes or wildly misinterpreted by scholars (a theory not unlike the infamous Phantom Time Hypothesis)…”

    another convenient wrinkle in time…?

      Dear Manbearpig

      Thank you for introducing me to Fromenko. It is a fascinating theory and it has kept me fully occupied for the past 3 days.

      I would be interested to hear what James thinks about the new chronology.

      • Arby says:

        I read that carbon dating could be off by orders of magnitude once we go back about 5000 years. I don’t know much about that, but I do know that Darwinian functional evolutionary theory is dead. Michael Denton is the ‘go to’ source for that. He’s also got a few very good YouTube vids for those who are interested. I read both of his books on the crisis in Darwinian theory. Both were over my head. The second one was less penetrable by someone not versed in the science Denton trades in, but I did come away from the read with a clear understanding that in the contest of Darwinian functional evolution vs structuralist theory, Darwinian theory loses most certainly. An interesting tidbit in Denton’s second book concerns the reluctance of the scientific community to acknowlede the fact of the failure of the functionalist approach. Why is that interesting? Because, the US is the center of fascist/neoliberal capitalism on the planet and it occurs to me that those who preside over the white supremecist, fascist system that is the American system, with the US dominating the global capitalist system that it designed post WWII, could use a belief system like Darwin’s, twisting it to justify (social Darwinianism) their imperialism.

  5. andrew.s says:

    Dear James
    Excellent comparisons, especially blatant when one compares the photos you cleverly juxtaposed.
    At time 4;15 you state that both Abu Musab al-Zarqawi who was the officially acknowledged founder of Isis and his replacement his
    successor Abu Omar al-Baghdadi both of them were according to the Pentagon itself either did not exist or were made-up characters that were basically played along by by the terrorists and by the their military / intelligence handlers.
    Do you have a source from the Pentagon I can revert back to on this?

  6. exo says:

    This is for James Corbett & anyone that can answer it. Say a person wants to devote their life to the real truth (9/11 truth especially) being written in high school history text books. How does that person turn that devotion into income or employment? What opportunities in research and spreading the truth are there? How does one at least survive? How do organizations stay afloat?

    • generalbottlewasher says:

      Exo ; that is a good question. You will need an NGO like the Rockefeller Foundation, except it will be philosophically opposed to corruption and obsfacation of the truth. Then using the framework that they established you will have the resources to bribe all the governing bodies at the state, county and local school district level. You can literally put a book in the hands of a child and extort a classroom teacher to teach that the moon is made of cheese. You as a lobbyist for such truth will make millions from the publishers of such truth . That’s how, all legal . The truth will need funding or a new paradigm.

    • generalbottlewasher says:

      Exo ; your question is noble and finding a suitable answer will lean toward the esoteric. You could have as good an answer when asking for the secrete of the Sphinx. Its ancient, and not for the faint of heart. Corruption exists from time imordium. I recently grasp the parable of the tare, and came to understand the relationship of good and evil, truth and falsehoods. I Recommend you do the same for knowledge of how the real world works.
      911 and Architects and Engineers have come to a crossroads, a place where each is incapable of existing together in this world. 911 is a falsehood and A&Es are fundamental truth. We are in the early stages of this fundamental crisis. The force behind 911 controls the majority of money that is distributed in the form of contracts that A&Es depend on to maintain the integrity of the professional art. This holds A&Es hostage and can’t Maintain reality, or truth that makes the bedrock of our cities, bridges, airplanes and life secure, predictable. 911 threatens that. A compromise is in the works, or they will suffer the parable of the tare. We must tolerate the falsehoods up and to a time when we can seperate the tares out from the wheat. Restoring truth to science.
      You are not asking impossible questions but difficult ones if you don’t see the control and power you propose going against at this time. History of this era will be written by the victors. There is a little chance you could profit from this dilemma, but please don’t become what you are trying to destroy. Organizations that will succeed will have the full knowledge of the tares in the field and you may learn how to coexist until the time is right. They are out there. Some are noble, some you must come to realize are not. Good luck figuring it out. I have little knowledge of but one. In north Texas in the Dallas area. North Texans for 911 Truth.??? And of course A&ES for 911 truth.

    James: I commented about this show on Bitchute and right after I applied some editting, it was deleted as spam. In what way is Bitchute an alternative to YouTube if that can happen? My posts are always thoughtful because it’s my intention to make those kinds of posts and I never use bad language because I choose not to. If you are still interested in alternatives to State-allied entities like Google and Disqus, perhaps you can ask Ray Vahey what’s going on with his Disqus alternative, because we really need it. And I don’t think that that will win the day because, as we’ve seen with the recent arrest of Max Blumenthal, they – the State and it’s worshippers, gatekeepers and other tools – are always happy to take the gloves off and they posses no compunctions about breaking laws, rules and agreements when it comes to dealing with the enemy, who is us.

    The comment, more or less, which I made on Bitchute:

    Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was not just some bearded scary guy. He was indeed a terrorist. Those are two different subjects.

    The supreme terrorist organization on the planet, in my view, is the American State. I call it nazi America but that may be somewhat harsh ‘if’ most Americans are against the policies of their political rulers (which would make American sub-fascist). Some, like Noam Chomsky, seem to think so. I’m not so sure. The situation with Idlib and al-Baghdadi is like the situation with the principle laid out in the (awful, but set that aside) Nuremberg trials, where it was established that a State engaging in ‘aggression’ (unfortunate language that detracts from the gravity of the situation) is committing the supreme crime because it contains within it many other crimes. Similarly, The supreme terrorist State, the chief of the global (one world government) Corporatocracy, namely the United States, creates and/or uses and funds so many other terrorist states, including ISIS, which al-Baghdady led.

    The interesting thing here – and it’s not just ‘interesting’ if you’re a Syrian citizen – is that the greenlighted killing of al-Baghdadi (which was also greenlighted by Erdogan, Putin and Assad) may have marked a turning point in the Syrian conflict. The Syrian war was already regarded as won by Syria before this happened. This event could go a long way toward firming up that loss for the regime-changing American ruling class, a good thing. (Alexander Mercouris expects that eventually, the Americans ‘protecting’ Syrian oil will leave Syria also.) Because it’s a good thing, I would think it’s a good thing for progressives, and not just rightwingers like Alexander Mercouris, to report. (I ‘do’ find the labels ‘Right’ and ‘Left’ to be useful, which doesn’t mean that applying labels is always easy to do. I struggle with them. As for The Duran, I have lots of issues with them, although they are informative and, a positive, anti-war. They are just too pro Trump for my taste.

    [SNIP – Please keep comments to 500 words or less. -JC]

    • Arby says:

      Will do. My WordPerfect says that the above word count is 490. I checked after you cautioned me. I’ll be counting my words, here, in the future but I’ll be using my WordPerfect to do so. I can’t imagine that it will give me a wrong word count. Later…

  8. Arby says:

    If you’re not unlearning much of what you’ve learned, then you’re not learning properly.

  9. Moxa4 says:

    Dear James, since your work on 911 your WWI-Documentary was for me the biggest revelation in my lifetime. Thank you!

  10. manbearpig says:

    In the interest of accurate climate history and future I’d be very interested to hear any constructive and/or perspicacious reactions to this climate talk mostly devoted to describing the strategies for transitioning to a carbon neutral society. I’m afraid it’s in French but the constant visuals are, I think, mostly in English.

    Personally I find it very uncomfortable to listen to as it in no way questions and is entirely based on what I, in all my colossal and arrogant ignorance, consider to be the classic climate fairy tale, namely that man-made CO2 is causing warming and that humans can actually mitigate future warming by reducing carbon emissions and that said reduction in global temperatures is desirable.

    “…This conference was recorded as part of the “The Challenge of Climate Change” Day organised by the Institut rhônalpin des systèmes complexes (IXXI) on 15 October 2019 at the ENS in Lyon.

    Freddy Bouchet is a CNRS researcher at the Physics Laboratory of the ENS of Lyon…

    Presentation of the conference:

    The impacts of climate change are reviewed in the first part. The speaker then presents different strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within the context of energy production and more specifically electricity. Different scenarios are presented to get through this transition that should produce results from 2050 onwards…”

    Recently I posted that Extinction Rebellion, according to WUWT, had scored a major victory in the form of a citizens’ committee on climate but, I’ve since realized that in fact the British are simply imitating what’s already going on in France that I haven’t been following: namely asking a panel of 150 citizens chosen to be a representative sample of the French citizenry not IF we should reduce our carbon emisions and if that’s a humane and realistic goal, but by how much. Clearly so called “climate skeptics” are persona non grata.

    “…On Friday 25 October, the second session of the Citizens’ Climate Convention opened. The 150 citizens drawn at random were asked to review the reflections of the first weekend, identify existing and non-existent tools to achieve the objectives, define social justice criteria and deepen the group work…”

    History is being written as I type but in whose interest and what lies are determining what lies ahead?

  11. manbearpig says:

    As a follow-up to my comment currently and deservedly touring the moderation queue I feel compelled to post this:

    happening in my French city of ambivalent adoption…

    Watch as the spontaneous, cough, Agenda 21 grassroots, gag, movement of informed citizens, blurp, challenges TPTSB, retch, and demands climate justice…BLARF!!!

  12. albus says:

    The propensity for the historical record to be falsified is not a defect, but rather an inherent characteristic because any historical expose is only a single stream among a preponderance of events, and a very narrow one at that. Trying to “correct” or “reconstruct” historical events towards some truth is a doomed enterprise because the past is ultimately lost to the real present, and even its ghost vanishes more often than not from our memory.

    Perhaps the greatest use of history should be to show how unsubstantial our own worldview and reality is, given how it is built upon a spectral foundation. It is then we can realize much of what we think we know about who we are and the world in which we live is from a selective memory cobbled together and interwoven with fantastical storytelling. This is not an issue except when such storytelling becomes blind to its own delusion of grandeur and truth, as though mankind was on a heroic quest towards a perfect ideal — a naked, unblemished truth — and tasked with valiantly slaying all deciet and falsehood. For what other reason would we desire a true history, if not to statiate our need to validate ourselves and our worldviews?

  13. a822 says:

    Great talk, hence the importance of supporting truth outlets,
    valid sources of information, media you can trust,
    authors you can rely on, so that truth will not remain
    pigeonholed into an alternative :truth, that alt-media stuff.
    it’s weird to actually learn that sound economics belongs to a specific department inside the field of economy studies, or that truth has become a peculiar and uncommon approach to dealing with facts.
