    Nice meeting the man behind the scenes. And, super nice story how James connected with, and believed in, Broc, and offered him the job without Broc having the experience at the time. Believe in the people you connect with. That’s what’s important.

    I’ve done a fair bit of editing work, and do have experience with different tools, like Avid, Premiere Pro, Premiere Elements, Lightworks, and what have you got. I’m currently using Shotcut for all my projects. It’s a free and open source project that really suits me, at least. The editing files are also human readable, which open ups many opportunities (like creating new cuts via simple scripts, etc). Shotcut has many built-in features. It’s cross platform. And, the tool is overall very user friendly, I reckon.

    Speaking of Last American Vagabond – a bit off topic – I have been trying to log on to that site and keep getting that ridiculous security error, with the click on button “BACK TO SAFETY”. It’s so disgustingly in our face.

    I have tried, bitchute, and other attempts and still the get the message. Frightening.

    Does anyone have a suggestion? As of his own interview with Nicholas Peter Urgero he was still on facebook and instagram but I do not have an account with either.

  3. I CANNOT believe Broc actually took the time to also edit our interview. This is fucking awesome! Thank you so much James for being open to having this on your website! God bless

    Took 2 weeks to complete. Editing is TIME CONSUMING

      The above 2 1/2 minute video is taken from Corbett’s 6/19/2020
      Episode 381 – Who Will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?

      Show Notes links are prolific!
      We’ve all come across online fact checkers that purport to warn us away from independent media sites under the guise of protecting us from fake news.
      But who is behind these fact check sites?
      How do they operate?
      And if these ham-fisted attempts at soft censorship aren’t the solution to online misinformation, what is?
      Join James for this week’s important edition of The Corbett Report podcast, where we explore the murky world of information gatekeeping and ask “Who will fact check the fact checkers?”

  6. CRM114 says:

    Video Editors recognize and appreciate good editing.

    Could you imagine a corbettreport doc with that awful spooky music heard on a lot of low quality conspiracy vids??

  7. Peripatêtikos says:

    Erroneous link. Here’s the correct thing itself:

  8. MEFF says:

    Hello James,
    Nice to meet Broc!!! Great job!!!

    PLEASE make a documentary about Second World War and about Hitler.


  9. scpat says:

    You do great work, Broc. Keep it up.

  10. Octium says:

    Missing Broc after he left Australia, most of the remaining alt media down here is either run by intelligence agents, radical right wingers or left wing cultists.

  11. cu.h.j says:

    Broc West does an excellent job. The production quality of the CR is what helps tell the story. His work is really outstanding and I just wanted to say thank you to him and JC for doing this meaningful and valuable work.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      cu.h.j says:
      “The production quality of the CR is what helps tell THE STORY.”

      You said it cu.h.j.!

      “…What is the most powerful weapon ever invented?
      Have you figured it out yet? STORY is the most powerful weapon. Narrative. Ideas presented in such a way as to provoke certain thoughts or actions…
      …But with a STORY you can control the world….”

      How to Save the World (in One Easy Step!)

  12. Fact Checker says:

    The thing that makes Broc a truly superlative filmmaker is that his faculties go far beyond an aesthetic sense and a diligent work ethic. He is also, clearly, a crack researcher and political/social analyst in his own right. This allows him to dig up the perfect images and clips to suit the script, independently. The speed at which he and James create these pieces together demonstrates that he doesn’t need to be served up every scrap of visual information that is ultimately incorporated into the work. He shares some of the same attributes with James, being intense curiosity, sweeping knowledge, and driven sleuthing skills.

    Being a pretty latecomer to the Corbettariat, I was not aware that Broc started out not as an editor, but rather as a commentator and researcher too. Now that I know, I am not surprised in the least, and it explains how he is so enormously effective in his current role.

    This brings me to the interview: great job by NPU. He asked all of the questions I was hoping he would ask, including asking for Broc’s impressions of both his home Vietnam and his point of origin Australia. I think it is essential that people share their personal experiences and information of their geographical reference points.

    Final question: Is Broc going to do the Super Bowl Propammercial bit this year? It’s been a while. I imagine the ads were toxic in the extreme, and it wouldn’t shock me if he was unable to stomach watching/dissecting them…

    • Broc West says:

      Fact Checker, thank you so much. That’s one hell of a kudos man, honestly thank you.

      And thank you to everyone for such an overwhelmingly positive response to my interview with Nick. It’s been mind blowing to say the least.

      I’m going to be appearing on The Ripple Effect with Ricky Varandas middle of next week. So stay tuned for that if ya’ll are so inclined 🙂

      Cheers up everyone, you’re all the best. Thank you for making this all possible.


    • Thank you for this comment. It truly means a lot! I am so happy you appreciated the questions I asked. I always try to provide different questions than the norm. Get a little deeper into someone’s background, etc. Hope to have on:

      James Corbett
      Whitney Webb
      Derrick Broze
      Josh Sigurdson

    New Monsanto feature film (starring Christopher Walken):

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      “Percy Vs Goliath” is in select theaters, on digital and On Demand on April 30, starring Christopher Walken.
      The movie is based on the real-life case of Canadian canola farmer Percy Schmeiser who went up against the agricultural biotechnology company Monsanto.

      Over a decade ago, I recall watching a lot of YouTube videos about Percy.

      “Who owns life?”
      QUOTE by Percy Schmeiser (5:11 mark)

      (8 minute video from March 2009)
      Percy Schmeiser – David versus Monsanto via DenkmalFilm

      But I am kind of surprised. With censorship in this era, I am wondering why this movie got the ‘okay’ (although it was shown in 2020 for a film festival).

      • candlelight says:

        Don’t forget Neil Young’s ‘Monsanto Years’ tour de force of few years back.

        His music and the message is kick-ass awesome.

        Btw, HRS, recently you brought up the movie “Cool Hand Luke”. You know, it’s the one book I ever read that I can recall with complete clarity exactly where I was, and exactly how I closed the book after reading its last lines. Why? Because I knew that later that afternoon I’d be heading right out to see it playing in the local movie theater – I must have been about 11 years old. I remember thinking the movie did the book some fairly good justice, but not 100%. Close.

    hello to all.

    Writing to you from france, my mom and I has been following corbett now for some years and thanks for all your work.

    just looked at this from Max igan and do not know what to think..

    Max Igan Preliminary Mask Examination: https: //

    • mkey says:

      Hello lisb, welcome to the comment section.

      Regarding your query, I would say that we should be weary of these various mask issues that are now metastasizing. The question is not what is in or on the mask but why do people believe that anyone has the right to force people into wearing them. To understand this issue means to become immune to these mind viruses.

  15. dadandan says:

    What videogames do you usually play Broc?

    • Broc West says:

      I mostly enjoy open-world RPG’s like The Witcher, Red Dead, Ghost of Tsushima kinda stuff. Also enjoy the odd sports game or two.

      • dadandan says:

        Ah the Witcher really was something else. The hype for Cyberpunk was unreal… while it did turn out pretty disappointing (in relation to the hype at least) I did still thoroughly enjoy it and will no doubt play it again once they release some expansions for it. Sports games were never really my thing but Rocket League is a great laugh. Add me on Steam (assuming you use it) if you’re up for any multiplayer… I’m Manila PH based so time differences and latency shouldn’t be too big a hurdle. I’m Dandadandan and the profile pic is the dude from Bit Trip Runner

  16. Ethan Hunter says:


    I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your work.

    Your work certainly breathes life and vibrance to James’ lucid and informative videos/podcasts.

    For a person that started from scratch you certainly are a heck of a talent – and the love and dedication you put forward in these works certainly does not go without notice and is very much appreciated.

    Keep on keeping us captivated!

  17. MagicBullet says:

    Nice to see Broc on screen!

    The secret to understanding masks:

    1. VIRUS SIZE: Masks are good for dust and pollen, haircuts, and some bacteria. Even the best masks aren’t certified below 250 nano-meters, viruses are 60-100nm large.

    2. INSIDE/OUTSIDE: If you are in a small enclosed space, over time the room will fill with nano-meter respiratory droplets that you will inhale thru the edges and probably the mask itself. Do or die, take the mask off and enjoy. If you are outside, it is an infinite cubic space. Don’t kiss infected people and your good to go.

    3. DROPLETS: There are only macro and micro/nano droplets. Macro fall to the floor quickly, micro/nano, dry and float into the air indoors, or fly into the outdoor sky quickly because of the air pressure gradient. Viruses do not have an altimeter telling them to stay around 5’8” above the ground.

    4. OPENINGS: There are openings at the mask edges, which open more over use. When Karen berates you for no-mask you can point to her nasal mask openings that widen as she screams. The mask mesh openings are larger than a virus and degrade over use. The people who say that “Brownian motion will cause viruses to stick in the mesh” don’t consider there is no proof of this, that not all will stick, and that over time many of these will later be sucked in.

    5. MULTIPLE BREATHS: Mask efficiency isn’t only one breath like you see in a lab, you need to look at multiple breaths that fill up a room. When you use a mask you give a wider target for droplets stick to the mask, dry from your breaths, then you suck them in thru the mask, and can blow out dried droplets from the inside of your mask over many breaths.

    6. SLOW MOTION VIDEOS: Nano droplets are so small you need an EM microscope to see them, they don’t show on those cool sneezing black light videos. These vids don’t say anything about them no matter how fewer droplets you see coming out with a mask.

    Since the Covid virus has never been isolated, we probably don’t need to worry about masks to begin with.

  18. Control Savvy says:

    I know from the experience of a friend and family member how difficult and time consuming film and video editing can be, but it’s worth it because image and sound can help drive the story. Kudos to Broc for his great work.

    Here is a sample of what sound and image can do to a text message from the Sheriff of New York.

  19. J.P. Wheeler says:

    I’m late to the party. Broc West…the man, the myth, the LEGEND! Haha! All kidding aside, Broc your video editing is on point and just brilliant. You’re truly killing it, keep up the amazing work brother!

    And Nick, what do you mean “rinky, dinky, podcast?” Don’t sell yourself short. Everybody has to start somewhere. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Keep working!


    • Thank you so much Wheeler. I appreciate it so much! Thank you for making my day! I will keep on trucking! Working two jobs at the moment but will try to continue making content when I can and doing interviews

  20. Fact Checker says:

    Does anybody have a link to the Broc-edited “excerpts” of Daily Wrap-Up from Last American Vagabond?

    On the TLAV site, it looks like they only had the Yxutxbe-hosted versions embedded (such as here )

    …and that they were nuked when TLAV got banned there. I did some searching on bit chute and couldn’t find them. It looks like Broc did two pieces for them?
