    Great holiday reading

  3. Random Thought #1
    I’m fairly thoroughly convinced that there is some sort of very advanced deep state filtering system running on Imgur and Reddit.
    There are several things that make the filtering apparent but the primary giveaway is the degree of U.S. military/troop worship.
    Because the U.S. military invasions mean more to TPTB than virtually anything else (even ‘vaccination’, ‘climate change’ and taxcattle disarmament), they’re failing to exercise restraint like they do with other issues.
    The result is over-the-top cartoonish U.S. military/troop worship (especially on Imgur) that came into existence far too suddenly and is greatly out of sync with reality.
    If TPTB have this level of filtering capability, that means every high-voted post on conspiracy/truth-related subreddits was permitted to be high-voted for one reason or another.

    Random Thought #2
    I want James to try DMT/Ayahuasca (in private) to take him to the next level. He has some rare extraordinary abilities and I think he’s meant to expand significantly beyond the fairly recent history & current events that he’s usually focused on.
    You might be thinking we don’t need two Graham Hancock’s (we’re better off with one James Corbett and one Graham Hancock) but I don’t think that’s what will happen; I think what we’ll end up with is one Graham Hancock and one Mega James Corbett.

      AnimalsArentFood:
      Definitely, deep state (or ‘our rulers’ as I call them) are everywhere. On Reddit, Google, …. NextDoor (‘NextDoor – presented to you by your neighbors in San Francisco’ states the website) – I had the bad fortune to try to ‘talk’ with some ‘neighbors on Nextdoor’ who then certainly turned out to be some of ‘our rulers” moles who help shape the opinion also on this local platform (on 5G, cell phone radiation safety, vaccines, …), and by the way they can pick up the sour grapes in localized neighborhoods with quite some precision (no user names allowed); how convenient and how nice from the Neighbors in San Francisco to provide such useful platform.

      Simpsons episode where Lisa’s toys came alive: When the finally arriving sex toy is asked, “where have you been,” it answers: “The better question is, where haven’t I been” – It’s the same with the deep state:

      The rulers’ ears, eyes, and tentacles reach into every crack. These fools were even audibly listening in to any call I made to my mother in W Europe after everybody was scared into giving up their freedoms following Sept 11 (what irony: ‘They hate us for our freedom’ and so we take it away from you, my good citizens (and from even well-vetted ‘aliens’ anyway).). I wonder what they made out of my mother and my conversations which we held in our quite strong local dialect.

      The sad thing is most have fallen prey to the rulers’ design:
      A division has been reached that can almost no longer be topped, a little is certainly still possible. 2020 will perhaps see the culmination before the hatred and distrust among the divided population becomes more than verbal. I myself can’t even talk about anything political at home any more. And I’m not even a US citizen or hang on to one of the 2 teams providing us with 24/7 screen entertainment. I keep waiting until I am deported to ‘where I come from’ (hopefully not thrown in jail here w/o processing). If all 7 pets (4 species) can come on the same plane, cabin please, I am ready to go!

      But seriously, if people in this country keep hating each other, it is very troubling. I don’t think the rulers actually want this to heal, they want the deep wound to get infected and spread.

      Happy New Year everybody. May the new decade prove me wrong and show that man is indeed deserving of the term ‘mankind.’

        If animals aren’t food, then why are they made of meat? I could never figure that one out.

        • geisha says:

          According to this, humans are also food then 😉 Don’t tell my cat, I still try to convince her that I’m not it!

          But seriously, animals are great converters of plant to meat stuff.
          And plants, well they, they just need some gas, water and light! Although some scientists now (again) think that we humans can make energy in similar ways…

          Life is a miracle.

          And even the bestest scientists don’t know everything about even the cell membrane. And still ‘we’re’ messing around with genes as if there was no tomorrow (oops, maybe there isn’t)

          Happy New Year!

          ormus-

          Copy. That quote has been thrown around a lot. Animals have been eating animals for as long as there have been animals. They are in fact food. The moniker is not literally logical. But I think I understand the sentiment of our friend above. He or she is clearly intelligent, and cares about the way humans treat animals, which is abhorrent and repulsive. If I am mistaken about anything, please chime in.

          • Yeah, you got it.
            It’s just a string of words that is aurally and visually appealing to me, provokes a particular thought and fits in the small space allotted for a username.
            The thought it’s meant to provoke (and frequently does) is:
            Are the bodies of other animals actually intended, suitable or necessary food for humans?
            Hopefully it will lead them down the path of learning about factory farming and the actual nutritional needs of humans. Whatever they conclude, I’m happy if they simply look into it with an open mind and a thirst for truth (as opposed to a thirst for confirming an already held belief).

            • ormus says:

              Thank you for the respectful responses.

              “Are the bodies of other animals actually intended, suitable or necessary food for humans?”

              “Hopefully it will lead them down the path of learning about factory farming and the actual nutritional needs of humans.”

              Yes, I believe that they are intended/suitable/necessary, especially in the case of people whose ancestors lived in northern latitudes and were adapted to a diet high in animal products. The higher the latitude, the higher the amount of animal products in the diet. Substances like DHA, and vitamin A are very hard for such people to obtain without consuming animal products.

              I was once a vegan. It ruined my health and made me completely depressed, ineffective, and unable to think clearly, something I’ve been slowly but surely recovering from since acknowledging my real needs. Sometimes, reality > idealism. Sadly, children that have to suffer under vegan parents’ belief systems don’t get to make that choice.

              Factory farming is an abomination. I think that anyone with an ounce of compassion for other beings can recognise that. I happen to have studied organic farming, with a particular interest in soil biology, and subsequently I know that industrial monocropping is hugely ecologically damaging, turning habitat for wild animals into something that cannot sustain them.

              Hence, promoting the idea that one can cause less suffering to animals simply by not eating them betrays an immense ecological ignorance, something which is sadly the norm today. Animals form a vital component of healthy ecosystems, and hence continued animal-human transactions are necessary if we wish to maintain ecological balance. The nature of the predicament we’re currently in is far more complex than that. In order to go into the subject, we’d need to consider what occurred in the transition from hunter gatherer to settled agriculturalist lifeways. With regards to the domestication of animals, this author presents a little heard perspective on the nature of the relationship.

                “Sadly, children that have to suffer under vegan parents’ belief systems don’t get to make that choice.”

                Sadly, children that have to suffer under meat-eating parents’ belief systems don’t get to make that choice. 😉

                We’re on the same page when it comes to factory farming.
                I’ll counter your monocropping view by pointing out that monocropping is not the alternative to animal product consumption. Monocropping is simply a product of heartless, profit-focused agriculture development; it is not a necessity of an herbivorous diet, and a compassionate empathetic society opposed to animal product consumption is a society that would fairly quickly do away with it.
                Additionally, at present, animal product consumption demands far more monocropping than plant consumption. There’s a reason meat & dairy have been regarded as luxury agriculture foods in so many regions and at so many points in history. It’s because you have to put a great deal of resources and nutrition into the animal to get a comparatively small amount of nutrition out of the animal. At present, animal product consumption demands more than double the monocropping that plant consumption demands to provide the same nutrients.
                This is why phrases like ‘we’re burning down the Amazon for Big Macs & Whoppers’ have been so oft repeated, and part of the reason that tax payer subsidies are necessary to make animal products affordable (a gallon of milk would cost at least $7 without subsidies).

                We have pretty much polar opposite views on the nutrition aspect, but I’m not going to get deep into this subject on this site. The most I care to do on this site (a site for open-minded truth seekers who are willing & able to do their own research) is spark interest (point in the direction of the rabbit hole).

                Peace

                @AnimalsArentFood

                For some reason I can’t respond directly to your comment.

                “monocropping is not the alternative to animal product consumption. ”

                What in your view then is the alternative to animal product consumption? What would it use for fertiliser? How would foods be grown, using what fuel?

                “There’s a reason meat & dairy have been regarded as luxury agriculture foods in so many regions and at so many points in history.”

                Sure, because the ruling classes believed that it wasn’t wise for the plebs to eat animal products, since it made them too hard to control:

                In the 2nd book of the “Republic” Socrates develops his idea of the diet best adapted to the general community.

                “The work-people will live, I suppose, on barley and wheat, baking cakes of the meal and kneading loaves of the flour.”

                It’s a nutritionally deficient slaves’ diet, and that’s why I consider it cruelty for parents to force it upon their children.

                Again, agriculture has much more to answer for than the consumption of animal products. Hunter gatherers didn’t overgrow their populations and start causing ecological catastrophes through the subsequent overexploitation of their surrounding lands. It seems to me that you have the cart before the horse.

                Yes, people eat far too many industrially produced hogs and chickens. The answer to most problems in agriculture is regenerative ruminant grazing.

                This study shows vegans have an increased conversion of fatty acids to DHA albeit still resulting in overall lower levels.
                https://www.researchgate.net/publication/46403205_Dietary_intake_and_status_of_n-3_polyunsaturated_fatty_acids_in_a_population_of_fish-eating_and_non-fish-eating_meat_eaters_vegetarians_and_vegans_and_the_precursor-product_ratio_of_a-linolenic_acid_t

                This study shows no increase in neurological disease in people who have no dietary DHA intake.

                https://www.researchgate.net/publication/283642024_Is_DHA_synthesis_from_ALA_sufficient_to_supply_the_adult_brain

                Retinol can also be converted from provitamin A.

                DHA and Retinol conversion are highly dependent on enzymes. Plants are full of enzymes, especially sprouts.

                Turmeric is known to increase DHA levels through enzymatic activity and by decreasing inflammation in the brain. Of course, get some piperine to decrease other enzymes to allow the curcuminoids to reach the brain!

                There are so many seeds that one could mention containing neccessary fatty acids and amino acids that are usually brought up as hard to obtain in a vegan diet. Simple sunflower seeds have like 20% BCAA’s; muscle building anyone?

                Eating greens and fruits and seeds supplies a person with an enormous amount of micronutrients.

                Answer to monocropping: Permaculture.

                Answer to compost: earthworms, soldier fly larvae. Have you seen the latter convert food scraps to compost, nothing beats them!

                Like the geisha alludes, we might as well eat humans! Of course, I think there is some emotional boundary that prevents the majority from doing so. Also, I believe most vegans/vegetarians are feeling a similar way when they experience factory farming in some way.

                That being said, my personal opinion is that we could live in a state of harmony with animals and even kill, eat them but definitely respect their lives and sentience. As well with everything despite supposed levels of said sentience, like plants when we kill them. No need to get all ‘woo woo’ it’s just we haven’t been SPENDING enough time with nature and PAYING attention and our respects and now we’re INDEBTED. That includes our bodies. Anyone who embarks on a diet devoid of animal and animal byproducts should be paying way more attention to their body and nutritional science. They should definitely embrace a variety of vegetables, fruits, seeds, legumes, and drink herbal teas.

                Not consuming animal products can be an awesome practice of asceticism and discipline!

                Above all, their are so many ways to live we should just be concerned with living our own way to the upmost of our ability! Forget others choices, be the change, inspire others! If your life is a living art no one can say anything. I’m saying this with the full understanding that I’m commenting on this particular website where we learn information about how organizations seek to control our lives and subjugate us under their rule. But what power do they have or does anyone have that is not given to them? I accept my responsibility as one who is embedded in the system under my own will. If I can’t free my mind and my body then that’s on me, no matter the obstacle! If I can’t protect my loved ones, that’s on me, no matter the obstacle! This whole slave business has been going on so long I’m not waiting for anyone to ‘wake up’.

      protocol for giving entheogens is to never offer until asked, and/but when asked there is an obligation to at least have discussion towards possible dosing/communion. those who do not follow that precept are highly suspect, and will head themselves and possibly lead others to a likely limited, if not dangerous experience. they are not for any and every psyche, and the ways in which people have become addicted to repeating them is proof that they are missing the point, possibly because of a disrespectful approach.

    Greetings to all connected here via James’ site
    I’m hoping to get some information here.

    I’ve just been in touch with Gerry Day, recently on the CR, doing a 5G update.
    I’m trying to replicate the letter one sends to the utility company to put them on notice about ones disapproval regarding 5G tech, smart meters, etc especially being compelled to have one installed.

    Gerry says it’s better to be proactive, not to merely avoid requests from the utility company who have asked me several times to allow them to install a smart meter.

    Om his EMF site: https://www.emfhelpcenter.com/ he has a proforma letter one can use but it’s for the US.

    Is there anyone who can advise me/us about doing the same in UK or EU?

    This is a problem for all of us and we can resist the imposition if we act together. Any suggestions

      Nick Weech from Scotland, is looking for advice from Gerry Day, who is all the way in the USA.(pretty good rime ,eh!)
      Indeed, The Corbett Report truly has an international appeal, and we share a common thread to be free, however laws very from country to country and I wouldn’t know what to do in Scotland.
      Here in S.E. Michigan I put a padlock on my Meterbox when I had the Analog Meter, and I posted stickers on it stating that it was not to be tampered with. None the less, I came home one day to find all the clocks flashing, (as is typical after a power outage). When I went to check on the Meter, they had cut the Meter Box and set my Pad Lock on the nearby garbage can. They installed a Smart Meter (at least that’s what they call them), and drilled a new hole in my Meterbox where they installed a new crimp lock.
      According to Michigan Law the Power Company is required to inform the Costumer/owner three times before they install one of these Smart Meters, yet nearly everyone I know was not aware that that had one on their home till after I pointed it out.
      In my case, I did get a Notice (perhaps two) which I showed to a friend who was/is highly active in fighting Smart Meters and the whole 5G thing. (He stood fast as the DTE Power Crew showed up at his home with the Police to change out his Meter. This resulted in them cutting off his Power at the Pole). Anyway, he told me not to send them the Notice Gerry Day was advising at that time.
      In retrospect, I wish that I had been proactive with the Paperwork so that I would at least have written proof that I had objected. This is very important because the Power Company can be sued for damages when you can show that this health hazard was forced upon you.
      Dan
      PS In nearly every Smart Meter Install by DTE in Michigan, the Meters were swapped out, without the Customer even knowing it, (which is illegal), and the customer was assumed to have Voluntarily Consented when they paid their next Bill.

      Hello Nick Weech,

      I’m in Hawick, in the Borders (48 miles from Edinburgh). I just wondered if you’re aware of a company called The People’s Energy Company (Registered office: 3 Wester Shawfair, Shawfair Park, Edinburgh, Scotland, EH22 1FD
      Company registration number: SC522897.) I moved over to them when Our Power went burst and a dodgy looking bunch took over from them. (Nightmare! They get access to card details etc.)

      I realise, with the name ‘Peoples Power’, they might prove to have as much enthusiasm for people-power as the Peoples Republic of China, but I thought they’re worth a try and, so far, they’ve left me alone in my tinfoilhatishness regarding smart meters. What the future holds for us is another matter. Maybe we’ll just have to cover ourselves all over in Bacofoil and end up looking like turkeys on the run from the roaster.

    • manbearpig says:

      I imagine you can adapt the Jerry Day’s proforma letter by simply changing a few details, e.g. the name of the smart meter in Scotland. (in France it’s called “Linky”.) Here’s a New Zealand letter that seems to do the job:

      FORMAL NOTICE OF NON-CONSENT TO SMART METER

      To: …………………………..…..[name of electricity supplier] and to:
      Minister of Health:
      Minister for the Environment:
      Minister for Infrastructure:

      TAKE NOTICE that I ………………………………………………….[full name]

      ……………………………………………………………………[street address].

      1 I DO NOT consent to a smart meter being installed on my property.

      2 I DO NOT consent to any employee, agent or representative of my electricity supplier entering onto any part of my property for the purposes of installing, testing or replacing a smart meter.

      3 I DO NOT consent to Radio Frequency Electromagnetic Radiation (“RF EMR”) being transmitted over my property by or for my electricity provider, including to or from any of my neighbours properties.

      4 Take notice that RF EMR was classified by the World Health Organisation and IARC as a Class 2B carcinogen in May 2011 based on research which showed evidence of genotoxicity and other harm as summarised in the IARC Monograths volume 102. RF EMR is the only Class 2B carcinogen to which children and the wider public continue to be forcibly exposed by the NZ government without consent and despite express non-consent.

      5 The NZ Standard NZS2772:1 1999 is dated, influenced by vested interests and was designed to protect only against 100% proven heating effects of RF EMR on humans (ie death, burns and electric shocks).

      6 NZS2772:1 1999 provides no protection against any biological effects from RF EMR and no protection for the wider environment.

      7 Biological effects from RF EMR can occur at levels of one ten-thousandth or less of the levels which cause heating effects (ie at 0.01% of the levels which cause heating effects.

      8 There is no known safe level for protection from biological effects of RF EMR.

      9 The NZ public bears the risk of ongoing harm from the genotoxic and many other biological effects demonstrated in peer reviewed published international research, including the research summarised by Dr Sophie Walker for her employer the NZ government.

      10 Information released by promoters of smart meters is misleading and deceptive and in apparent breach of the Fair Trading Act.

      11 Smartmeters are causing pain and suffering around the world and offer no apparent consumer benefit. Refer “Take Back your Power” at http://www.takebackyourpower.net

      For all these reasons I do not consent to a smart meter on my property and I do not consent to RF EMR from smart meters or related equipment on any other property emitting on or over my property.

      Please acknowledge receipt of this notice by reply email, and ensure my non-consent is registered on your database.

        Thanks I’ll give it a go. I’m tied to this supplier until Dec20 but will send them the notice and let you know what their reply is.
        It’s the Government pushing the power suppliers to install meters in the UK, with a timescale & budget cut-offs.

        I don’t see anything preventing their installing without our agreement, unless we act together to forestall them. Older smart meters are tied to a particular supplier so changing suppliers may mean the meters wont work/ have to be upgraded- they’re working on that step;it affects many installed meters over the last years, those who were trial guinea pigs.
        The Power Company will say that sending your payment is an acceptance of their Terms & Conditions: As LibertyDan in Michigan attests

        Unless one can do as Jerry & live off-grid and we won’t be allowed to do that en masse.

    • mkey says:

      I’m not sure why don’t people wrap the actual smart meter in tin foil, that will stop it from emanating EM waves. I’m not sure how much dirty electricity do these produce, but as far as the device communicating to whoever and whatever, that will be stopped. This of course depends on how accessible the device is, but as long as it can be encased properly, it should be left in a quit room, talking to itself until kingdom come. Or at least until utility people come knocking.

      Somewhat on that note.

    Wondering how many here are familiar with the Institute for the Study of Globalisation and Covert Politics site?

    Although I often find myself questioning how the author frames various political questions, and find his stridency a little off putting at times, his grasp of ‘conspiracy’ subjects and controlled opposition is second to none. The site hosts a huge amount of data regarding various hidden networks, and also presents a complex understanding of how they relate to each other. Highly recommended. Good place to start:

    Greetings all. The Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice is one of the most ancient celebrations of human existence. It has taken on many different variations from Neolithic Yule at places like Newgrange to modern day Christmas. What causes humans to celebrate and reflect at the “completion” of a 360 degree circumnavigation of Earth’s stellar voyage?

    I’m wondering if James Corbett will finally finish his book this coming year. Maybe something for a new years resolution? 2020 will be the year, I can feel it! It has been god knows how long. I’m not trying to give you (=James) a hard time, but I’m just dying to buy it, read it myself and then spread it among friends who will be much more inclined to read a good book than to listen to some podcast on internet.

    Remember James, your book doesn’t have to be perfect. I’m pretty confident your book is already quite awesome as it is. Perfect is the enemy of good. You’ll never finish the book otherwise. You can always publish a second edition, or third etc. with revisions after you have published the first edition.

    I know how hard you work (extremely hard) but as awesome as I find your podcasts or articles, I can’t think of anything that should have more priority than just finishing your book but maybe that’s just me. Just reduce the time you spend on your regular content and spend it on your book until the book is finished. The book will not get finished unless you give it priority. You can do it! You know that, and you don’t need me to say it, but I’m saying it anyway.

    In any case, I would like to sincerely thank you for your awesome work all of this time! Have a great 2020!

    One hopeful thing as we enter the next year is the latest installment of what apparently is a regular feature: a conversation with the editor of the American Medical Association’s “JAMA Pediatrics Journal,” in this case talking with the editor of the “JAMA Open Network Journal.” They were talking about the former’s decision

    https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/article-abstract/2748628

    to publish a Canadian study

    https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/fullarticle/2748634

    that found significant negative impacts on children’s IQ of pre-natal fluoride exposure in the mother. The editors’ discussion is at:

    https://traffic.libsyn.com/jamapediatricseditorssummary/association_between_maternal_fluoride_exposure_during_pregnancy_and_iq_scores_in_offspring_in_canada.mp3
    OR
    https://soundcloud.com/jstandards/jama-pediatrics-editors-summary-fluoride-iq-2019

    It came out 4 months ago, but I was unaware of it until it turned up on Del Bigtree’s “The Highwire.”

    The fascinating part of it was that in practically every respect in which they acknowledged they (accomplished scientists/editors) had been unaware that fluoride was a problem at all, that science is iterative (i.e., NOT settled), and that publishing on such a subject is risky, they offhandedly referenced the exact same issues in vaccines.

    The fact that they exhibited extreme cognitive dissonance by tossing off the vaccine similarities negatively and failing to connect the supremely obvious dots was disappointing, but the door was definitely opened to raise the issue in the future, to throw it back squarely in their faces. Interesting times coming up…

  11. I recently came across this: https://www.fastcompany.com/90446468/apple-wants-to-bypass-carriers-and-beam-internet-data-directly-to-iphones-via-satellites about crApple’s attempt to have its own satellites and data service to send directly to their customers, thereby bypassing traditional carriers.

    Not that I care much for the global tech companies like AT&T and Verizon, but surely I see this as a further erosion of options and competition. This is another avenue down the road of proprietary control, limiting options and herding users into digital ghettos where companies like crApple are the sole arbiter.

    In fact, with Russia now ‘testing’ it’s own ‘internal’ internet: https://www.extremetech.com/internet/303832-russia-tests-its-alternative-to-the-open-internet I foresee things moving towards these fragmented models of digital ghettos and spheres. China is already there with its Great Firewall and censorship.

    The additional aspect to this is further increase in costs, thereby closing the internet off to all those who are unable to afford the new higher subscription models. This would further fragment the access to open information and the net effect on society is not good.

    ‘Surfing the web’ was a thing of the 90s and early 2000s, but seems to be almost non-existent in this age and I predict,with the declining freedom of cyberspace, a relic of the past.

    I hope we can do some more investigation into this trend and hopefully JC does some of his impeccable research on this as well.

    I do not wish Julian Assange harm.
    Like Greta Thunberg, I believe he’s a somewhat emotionally troubled person who’s been used and abused by TPTSB (though to varying degrees).
    He has a needy tendency towards self-aggrandizement that he indulges even to the point of misrepresenting the facts (think 9/11, the so-called “Arab Spring” and Climategate).
    Though he has greatly assisted the mendacious MSM newspapers to get through the painful transition from paper to cyber, any “Truth” that his knowing or unknowing handlers allow him to reveal, including Hillary and Pizzagate or proving “conspiracy theorists” correct on some issue, has been or will be used to better mislead and manipulate people, particularly “non-normies” who are more specifically targeted.
    He has been sanctified by the MSM and allowed to evade “the authorities” for as long as his charade has proven useful to those entities wielding him as a psyop.
    May we all get through this safe and sound.

        Started having a look at those videos, jrosback.

        Provocative and intriguing stuff infused with the speaker’s profound and smilingly contained exasperation and perceptible anger at what he perceives to be ubiquitous ignorance and the mindless pretense of what I guess you’d call “scientism”.

        Will definately watch others as soon as I can: among the most recent I also watched the explanation of Tesla’s most famous quote and also “Yes, Timmy, the Ether exists” where he propounds, in the presence of a powerful and illustrative magnet, that everything is unquantifiable or “unquantizable” fields?, light bulbs do not emit light and the non-existence of photons. Hope to watch “Gravity is Technically not a field” next. Way, way over my fuzzy hamster head but fascinating nonetheless!

    It was brought to Europe by Marco Polo, but the church
    declared it work of the devil.
    Paper money became based on debt, and became the power
    behind England, enabling them to conquer the world.
    They attacked countries that did not accept their money.
    That also started the Opium war.
    The US joined, because also women should be for sale.

    For grins…

    A few days ago, in the comment section of Corbett’s article “The 2010s: The Decade in Review”, I couldn’t resist posting an article which “The Sun” (UK) carried entitled:
    “GONE WITH THE WIND
    Man whose deadly farts ‘can kill mosquitoes hired to create Mosquito Repellent made from his intestinal gas’”

    CNN, with their fake news, would get much better ratings with fake stories like this mosquito one. That is probably why “The Sun” ran it, but they snagged it from another website.

    I finally tracked down the original website from which ‘The Sun’ snagged it, because I figured that it would have more great fake stories.
    Yes, indeed!
    They sure do!

    Here is the link to the ‘Orginating Website’ of the article about the farts and mosquitoes…

    “Bee sting to the ____ can permanently enlarge it”

    The halls of the public school named after him where crammed with his sayings, movie schemes, writings and commentaries on life. I find today in the propaganda rag of the Berkshire-Hatheway Media News a telling reminder how things haven’t changed for some 88 years now, probably more, as stated by Carroll Quigley. From the dispatches of a commentator paid by press that no longer exists I would like to share some wisdom from a keen observer. The irony is the rag proclaims to follow the teaching of the bible. From Jeremiah 50:2 “Publish and set up a standard; publish and conceal not.” This quote from a dispatch Oct.2,1932 appears today along sidea an editorial proclaiming,”Navy honors state.Oklahoma to share name with new attack submarine”. It goes on to say ‘ The USS Oklahoma will be built for war, but has a mission of peace; projecting American strength on the seas with such overwhelming capacity that no foe will be willing to challenge our nation or its allies.’
    I wonder if I can vote my way out of that Orwellean nightmare?

    If anyone wants to save themselves some mental anguish regarding you trying to explain to folks why all govt is bad …

    I recently discovered the youtube channel Josie Outlaw.

    Covers a lot of aspects including true duty of someone summoned for Jury Duty. Great stuff.

    Looks like she did her part and then left the scene. I think she was aided and encouraged by long time anarchist/voluntaryist Larken Rose who I’m sure many here are aware of, who also has a lot of good stuff on his youtube channel. Josie though … no point in someone like myself trying to explain things when she does it so well.

    • Thank you for the recommendation, I had never come across her vids. They have exactly the value you stated. They also have the value of reassuring you that you’re not wrong, which is comforting when living in a society that is essentially a never-ending, ever-present 110db paid advertisement telling you how wrong you are.

    Helicopter Money Is Here: How The Fed Monetized Billions In Debt Sold Just Days Earlier
    https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/helicopter-money-here-how-fed-monetized-billions-debt-sold-just-days-earlier

    The Fed’s charter prohibits its from directly purchasing bonds or bills issued by the US Treasury: that process is also known as monetization and various Fed chairs have repeatedly testified under oath to Congress that the Fed does not do it. Of course, the alternative is what is known as “Helicopter Money”, when the central bank directly purchases bonds issued by the Treasury and forms the backbone of the MMT monetary cult.

    But what if there is at a several day interval between Treasury issuance and subsequent purchase? Well, that’s perfectly legal,..

    Hmmm..

      John Lothe; I opened the Berkshire-hatheway Media propaganda paper today to see an almost identical article reporting the latest disturbing developments.
      There was however some 7 or 8 paragraphs down a most surprising bit of information not presented here in what you posted. Im curious to see if the BBC report includes what I read today in print..

      Quote;”Its unclear what legal authority the U.S. relied on to carry out the attack. American Presidents claim broad authority to act without congressional approval when U.S. personal or interests are facing an imminent threat. The Pentagon did not provide evidence to back up its assertion that Soleimani was planning new attacks against Americans.”
      Well my hats off to Qassim Abdul-Zahra and Zeina Karam of the AP for including that fact in their report.

      I remember hearing a claim (that I never researched for myself) somewhere – possibly in a previous report from Mr. Corbett or from one of the Peace Revolution podcasts – that a deal was already struck before Reagan was elected in regards to releasing the prisoners, but that the credit should go to Reagan…
      Does anyone know more about that?

      I’m also curious as to more recommendations on articles, podcasts, videos and books for more background, as well as how the big financial powers play into all of these events, in particular those mentioned in the video I linked above.

      Last I’d like to ask for recommendations regarding media to follow to keep track of what is going on as things continue to move forward.

        Hi Eric

        You can find information about the Reagan hostage deal by researching “October Surprise”. It seems to be quite well-known now about the deal to delay the hostage release so that Jimmy Carter would lose the election. Barbara Honegger wrote a book about it called “The October Surprise”. Of course it all ties in to the Iran/Contra drugs/money/arms affair.

    The 2019 Samoa measles outbreak began in October 2019.
    A state of emergency was declared on 17 November, ordering the closure of all schools, keeping children under 17 away from public events, and making vaccination mandatory.

    On 2 December 2019, the government imposed a curfew and cancelled all Christmas celebrations and public gatherings.
    All unvaccinated families have been ordered to display a red flag or cloth in front of their homes to warn others and to aid mass vaccination efforts.

    As of 26 December, 2019 there were 5,612 confirmed cases of measles and 81 deaths, out of a Samoan population of 200,874.

    Ah, yes, the open thread, excellent. I was thinking “where can I ask this to Corbett?” so here it goes. It’s a 6 minutes video with Leonard Bernstein talking about Beethoven’s 9th symphony, his thoughts and feelings after the recording. “Peace, armistice, brotherhood” he says, and he mentions this – what he calls – “Beethovenean” thing about brotherhood etc – in other occasions. Bernstein was born in 1918, the year of the armistice, as he says on the video, so, after Corbett’s documentary on WW1, I wondered how Corbett would view this comment. I don’t know, but Bernstein and others always talk about life, war, politics etc with the apparent supposition that we’re all equal – “mankind”. Secret societies don’t exist, neither do castes or eugenics, and wars are some kind of failure of mankind, some weakness that can be overcome with words like brotherhood, peace and love if only we worked harder, and together, in that direction. And isn’t that the New World Order wants as well? A united global “human race” living in peace and harmony? You know? Something like that. Anyway, there’s the video.

    • generalbottlewasher says:

      Alexandre, I can’t figure Bernstein out. He speaks so esoterically I can’t translate. So as it was Saturday night and I was looking for some music. Con premiso , here is the 9th. It dosent effect me like it effects Leonard. Lets see what others think? From the Detroit Symphony.

      https://youtu.be/Uj-raECjwGE

      • alexandre says:

        I’ll have a listen, thanks.
        Yes, I’m curious – specially about the “no more wars” thingy. I don’t think Lenny knew about secret societies, even though he used to walk around very high circles. Or did he? (organ chords)

        The thing with classical – or erudite – music is that it is really erudite. I when I was ‘only’ a jazz musician and it was kind of meah…hmmm, nothing. Then I studied with an american maestro that was living here and after about a month analyzing the first movement of Beethoven’s 1st, it changed completely. I started loving Beethoven, but that’s because I analyzed the score for a month. Structure, form, development and all the work and engineering involved (together with putting yourself on that period/context) is not known or felt only by listening, so non-musicians (or even musicians from other genres) are stuck with “like”. To my jazz friends Beethoven is just bullshit. Tonic to dominant – dominant to tonic again, duh. I was like that, and maestro said “you’ll have to develop another aesthetic”. That’s the problem. Who wants to change aesthetics to be able to appreciate some music? I did it because I wanted to write for orchestra, and you can’t do it without studying the old masters.
        And even with all that, you still may not like something, EVEN…Beethoven. But it’s another kind of “like” altogether. I don’t like Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz, but man was he a master.

        Sorry, I got carried away.

        • generalbottlewasher says:

          Well, I hope you get carried back.

          Lenny’s body language was creepy especially when he went into his emotions. He was acting, poorly. Still have no idea how to translate what he is saying. If I didn’t knew any better i would say he was high as a kite.!???
          What do i know? I really liked Candida.! ?

          • alexandre says:

            Leonardo is a difficult character. I appreciate how much he knows about music and I learned a lot from his Norton Lectures (at Harvard 1976 I think). In those lectures you see how everything is rehearsed and acted, but he would say that it’s to make the presentation clear and precise, something like that. I think he acted the whole time, yes, but it makes me think of classical composition. You don’t simply “feel” something and start writing. You plan, analyze, review, search and work hard until you get to a certain point where your idea is presented as clearly and precise as possible, IF it’s a good idea to begin with. Beethoven’s 5th only inspiration, it could be argued, was the first famous 4 notes. The rest is a development of that single simple idea. That’s why Beethoven was so great. He could milk three notes for 20 minutes and build cathedrals out of that like no one. (My teacher once told me I had more creativity than Beethoven, and yet … he was Beethoven … and I was me. Sigh..). I think Bernstein did the same with himself the whole time. He “composed” everything. Everything planned and well presented. And it comes out artificial, as could be classical music when compared to jazz.

            The point he’s making there is that Beethoven – and all the others he mentions – strove (?) for brotherhood and peace, and yet we are far from anything like that. But his starting point is very naive, mainstream and melodramatic – wars are weaknesses of the human race etc. When you know how ogres like Rhodes and the whole fascist upstairs are, it’s a very dumb statement. But we know a lot today that wasn’t known then perhaps?

            • manbearpig says:

              I really enjoyed reading that comment. It was limpid and logical, simple and insightful and complete. I must take a look at the Norton lectures.

              • alexandre says:

                Really? Me, limpid and logical?? That must be because I do a bit of composing as well. If you talked to me on the phone, you’d see I’m almost illiterate.

                I left out the fact that Leonardo was gay (or bi-sexual) because you can’t say these words no more without being disappeared by the PC police, but that could have something to do with his dramatic character.

                Funny thing about his Norton lectures is that the audio version is a bit different from the video version. He made many edits, retakes etc. Maybe Karajan has something to do with it. Video was “the new thing” and Karajan made his films with the Berlin Philharmonic where he did it in film (35mm and all) with many takes, edits, cool directions etc.

                https://karajancinemaclassics.com/en/

                Lenny has his “Young People’s Concert” series as well, all in video. Maybe the thing was to bring the classical world to the populace, make it cool etc. I don’t know. He spent a lot of time teaching music for laymen and my teacher did his own version as well, following Leonard’s path, a series he called “Musical Journeys” where he taught music lovers how to listen to music. I held the camera in one and it was incredible how the old ladies at the end came to him in tears, saying they’re gonna listen to their whole collection again with new ears etc. I don’t know. Maestros are complicated. A good reference, if I could remember the title, would be a book I read once…can’t remember, it was a friend’s book. There you see what drove these guys the most.

                but it could have been another. Sorry, too long a time.

                In the one I read it said that Karajan had two subscriptions in the Nazi party – something you didn’t have to do at the time apparently. No one was forced to be a member of the party, but the guy did it twice, just to make sure. They don’t give a shit. With few exceptions (maybe Sergiu Celibidache) they just want the good ol’ package – money, power and sex – and that’s all. I met one that was exactly like that and today she’s a big shot. When you see indeed how much money they make compared to the musicians, it’s really hard not to think the Orpheus Orchestra is a really really good idea.

                An orchestra without conductor?? What, an … anarchist orchestra?? Hmmm…..And I must say that it was one of the best orchestras I ever heard, but I could be biased.

    “No More Threats” – Trump Warns Iran “52 Targets Will Be Hit Very Fast & Hard”
    https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/no-more-threats-trump-warns-iran-52-targets-will-be-hit-very-fast-hard

    QUOTES from Trump Tweets late January 4th
    “Iran is talking very boldly about targeting certain USA assets as revenge for our ridding the world of their terrorist leader”

    “[Soleimani] had just killed an American, & badly wounded many others, not to mention all of the people he had killed over his lifetime, including recently hundreds of Iranian protesters.

    He was already attacking our Embassy, and preparing for additional hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for many years.”

    “Let this serve as a WARNING that if Iran strikes any Americans, or American assets, we have targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran many years ago), some at a very high level & important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and those targets, and Iran itself, WILL BE HIT VERY FAST AND VERY HARD. The USA wants no more threats!”

      Artificial Intelligence in Gold Mining Exploration
      A few months ago, after listening to a big gold mining owner, I bought some shares of Goldspot Discoveries Corp. (TSX-V: SPOT …or in U.S.: GDDCF) for a long haul investment. Shares are priced just over a dime.

      GoldSpot Discoveries is revolutionizing the mineral exploration business by utilizing artificial intelligence to target on a regional and localized scale. https://goldspot.ca/

      A problem in the beginning for these small public companies is that traders will come in to manipulate prices down and take profits, because manipulation is easier with low share prices.

      However, something I am much more excited about is EnviroLeach Technologies, Inc. (EVLLF).
      They have developed a non-toxic method of extracting precious metals, whether it be old circuit boards or gold mining crushed rocks.
      In the past, arsenic and extreme PH chemicals have been used, which permanently will pollute the effluent water flow.

      From about 4 pallets of old, crushed electronics, the EnviroLeach process can safely remove perhaps $10,000 to $20,000 of gold/silver.

    Iraq’s parliament has voted to have foreign troops removed from the country
    https://www.rt.com/news/477515-iraq-parliament-foreign-troops/
    EXCERPTS
    Iraq’s parliament has voted to have foreign troops removed from the country, heeding a call from its caretaker prime minister. The move comes after the US assassination of a top Iranian general and a commander of Iraqi militia.

    The resolution, which was passed anonymously, instructs the government to cancel a request for military assistance from the US-led coalition, which was issued in response to the rise of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS). With IS supposedly defeated, Iraq will not need foreign troops to fight the jihadists and can close its airspace to coalition aircraft….

    A Corbett Report podcast idea:
    A dissection of the structure of corporate media ownership. Who the CEO and leadership are, who they are connected to, etc. We can obviously see that the mainstream media is complicit in U.S. government crimes and operations, but showing the direct linkages between government and various media power players who pull the strings could be insightful.

  39. dbergkvist says:

    Anyone else think the embassy attack was a false flag?

    1. The attackers themselves wrote Soleimani’s name on the embassy walls (https://nypost.com/…/hundreds-of-iraqis-attempt-to-storm-u…/)

    2. Soleimani had been invited to Iraq for talks with the Iraqi
    prime minister.

    I.e. the official US narrative wants us to believe that Soleimani told his people to write his name on the walls of the embassy, so everyone would know who was responsible, even though he knew that by the time the US would see this, he would be an easy target in Iraq. So was he planning to become a martyr, then? If that’s the case why did the US grant him this wish, knowing that they are playing into his hand? Seems unlikely.

    So who else knew that Soleimani would be in Iraq? Only Iraq and the US. So did Iraq invite him, then attack the US embassy so they could frame Soleimani for the attack, knowing that the US would gullible enough to take him out, so they could use that as a pretext to kick the US out? How could they know the US would react in such a way? The appropriate response to an embassy attack is to tell the host country (i.e. Iraq) to investigate, which would not result in a pretext to kick out the US.

    Looks like there is only one possible culprit left.

      This link above is broken. This is the correct one: https://nypost.com/2019/12/31/hundreds-of-iraqis-attempt-to-storm-us-embassy-in-baghdad/?fbclid=IwAR3BQXaAB4bu_OOCqC1VIs2e7JQe37Fn1s1miUhASPmWZ-r9_NmCVnnFJ6Q

      I don’t have a source for point two. I read on Twitter that the Iraqi prime minister said it, but if we could find absolute proof that this is true, that would be good.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      As far as ‘false flag’, I dunno.

      My thoughts about Tuesday/Wednesday protests at the U.S Embassy were just that: “Protests”. Not an “attack” on the U.S. Embassy.
      Sure…folks were pretty riled and throwing rocks.
      Like one of them was quoted:
      “Americans are unwanted in Iraq. They are a source of evil and we want them to leave.”
      He is right.

      One thing that I found odd with the media. They described the protestors as entirely of Iranian ilk. I doubt that.

      Anyone with two eyes can see that Iraq has been a train wreck ever since the U.S. set foot on their soil.
      I would want the U.S. to leave if I lived there. I bet a lot of U.S. military grunts want to leave also.

        About a month ago, on DVD, I watched the year 2000 movie “Rules of Engagement”.
        Samuel Jackson, Tommy Lee Jones, Ben Kingsley
        In the film, Yemen was demonized and the U.S. Embassy was being mobbed by protestors.

        The protest at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, reminded me somewhat of the film.

        However, in the film, the protestors were firing weapons, but the government was lying to say that they were not.

      • dbergkvist says:

        Somebody wrote “Suleimani is my commander” on the wall of the embassy. And Suleimani happaned to be the name of a guy who happened to be in Iraq because he had been invited to talk the Iraqi prime minister, and would thus be an easy target for the US.

        The fact that it wasn’t really an “attack” but rather a “protest” doesn’t change that this would be a huge coincidence.

  40. Ethan Hunter says:

    All I am going to say is that it looks like the Neocons are still going to get their war with Iran whether we like it or not. The drumbeat is already happening…and despite resistance it still is commencing…what will really cause the MIC to pause in its tracks? Evidently not protests…we saw all sorts of protests against the Iraq war and they decided to go ahead with it anyway. What will really prevent a war from escalating?

    Some great in depth descriptions and interviews on the same named Gootube channel and the GLOSSA channel.

    Reading the CR comments and as a InPower Movement member, I think we all have similar presumptions why they do it. Rights changed into privileges after Corpis-juris (Treaty of Rome aka UNIDROIT) was signed in each country. Cheers

      I’m starting to get a little nervous here.

      WUWT posted an article containing the following two paragraphs plus a quote translated from German:

      “…An [April 2019] Solar Energy publication in Germany has demanded that politicians use climate emergency declarations as a justification to punish climate “saboteurs”, people who undermine climate action by trivialising the emergency with their climate denial…:

      “…We will lose the trust of the younger generation if we parents and grandfathers do not react appropriately. A well-fortified democracy must not tolerate this development. What is missing here is a legal threat of punishment in the penal code – as already mentioned in the summary:
      “Anyone who plays down or denies the climate catastrophe in a way that is likely to disrupt, disparage or completely prevent the defence of the climate catastrophe under the Paris Climate Convention and its follow-up agreements will be punished with a fine of up to 300 daily rates. In case of recurrence, the penalty is imprisonment”…”.”
      Translated from German by deepl

      Fining and jailing website and social network owners who allow for the circulation of politically incorrect ideas was, among others, recently advocated by Sacha Baron Cohen in a speech addressing the ADL:

      “…Conspiracy theories once confined to the fringe are going mainstream. It’s as if the Age of Reason – the era of evidential argument – is ending, and now knowledge is delegitimized and scientific consensus is dismissed…
      …And after years of YouTube videos calling climate change a “hoax”, the United States is on track, a year from now, to formally withdraw from the Paris accords. A sewer of bigotry and vile conspiracy theories that threatens democracy and our planet…
      …And maybe fines are not enough. Maybe it’s time to tell Mark Zuckerberg and the CEOs of these companies: you already allowed one foreign power to interfere in our elections, you already facilitated one genocide in Myanmar, do it again and you go to jail.”

      In France, Holocaust denial is a crime punishable by fines and imprisonment:
      Wiki: “…The Gayssot Act or Gayssot Law (French: Loi Gayssot), enacted on 13 July 1990, makes it an offense in France to question the existence or size of the category of crimes against humanity as defined in the London Charter of 1945, on the basis of which Nazi leaders were convicted by the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg in 1945-46 (art.9)…”
      Sounds like in the time it takes to type this comment a new law modeled on the Gayssot Law will make it an offense to question the existence or size of the of the deleterious effects of man-made CO2-induced climate change” punishable by fines and/or imprisonment”.

      But then again, I guess some progress has been made since 2010 when the media promoted murdering climate skeptics:
