Yes, June 1st, 2017 will mark the 10th anniversary of The Corbett Report. And yes, it’s kind of a big deal for me, as you might imagine. I haven’t decided how to mark the occasion yet, but I do want to hear from you: How did you find the site. What were your impressions at the time? Did it change your perceptions? What does it all mean? Send me your feedback (along with whatever name you want used on air) and you might be featured in my 10 year birthday bash! Oh, and I’ll be presenting at the Red Pill Expo in Montana next month via Skype (details below).

    I want to encourage folks to be sure to watch the video where Jerry Day interviews James Corbett.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbOhYPPco5U

    As an aside, I still love the scenery when Corbett does these type of videos. The backdrops always are interesting. And Spring has come in Japan!

  2. mkey says:

    In my case, I think I came over your site through a youtube video of the short 9/11 infomercial you did. Not much to tell really, one good thing youtube does is direct you in proper directions at times, probably unwillingly.

    O.k. I’ll take this opportunity to wallow in a little biographical self-indulgence.

    Was embroiled in the intellectually and emotionally exhausting experience of “waking up” on Information Clearing House (starting in 2008 because of a broken leg)

    spent hours, days, weeks, months looking for facts and opinions supported by research on a plethora of topics and one day happened upon your site… can’t remember exactly what the subject was the very first time… most probably the banking cartel…after Bill Still’s doc…

    I just know I was dabbling on your site by the end of 2008 beginning of 2009…always immensely impressed…linked your work often (was even credited by other ICH people for having been among the first to plug and quote your work… (an incredible honour, toot my own horn here)

    then Carbon Eugenics was a revelation

    was initially perplexed by your apparent support then later gratified by your scepticism concerning the otherwise universally and unconditionally acclaimed Julien Assange…and after that Snowden…

    Meet Noam Chomsky Academic Gatekeeper was viciously gratifying and 9/11, A Conspiracy theory was profoundly and mirthfully liberating.

    I felt I’d formulated notions and opinions from research I’d do in response to reading ICH articles and you always seemed to vindicate my point of view (except concerning Sibel Edmonds who I’ve now come to appreciate)…You most notably substantiated my conviction that TPTSB were engineering the fall of the west and the rise of the east.

    Finally, ICH management started seeming bizarre, in my point of view, with, among other things, particularly noxious trolls. And then one of my favorite daily commenters by the name of Henk Ruyssenaars (whose “cheval de bataille” was exposing the Bank for International Settlements) died. Of cancer I believe.
    I was accused of posting under various monikers which was ostensibly proven when the alleged site owner and some troll published a list of IP addresses on the comments board. And so on this utterly fraudulent pretext I was banned from the site.

    So I just moved in here. And have never been disappointed.

    However, in honor of the big One Oh, electing podium candidates or “best-ofs” has proven frustrating.

    Could they be found among the many pieces you’ve done on the inner workings and hidden agendas of the man-made global warming myth? Is it the 9/11 Trillions doc or 9/11 a conspiracy theory? Gladio B? The Rise of the Oiligarchs?

    Maybe my personal favs would be the interview with Peter Dale Scott despite the sound quality difficulties, the afore-mentioned Carbon Eugenics, or No! China and the New World Order! wait no wait! U.S. and China Frenemies with Benefits… or…aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhhhhh

    impossible to choose – it’s all prolifically and prodigiously excellent.

    Happy Anniversary! I’ll drink to that!

    • nosoapradio says:

      ADDENDA: – My fav was not the interview with Peter Dale Scott but the FLNWO episode “The Poetry of F.R. Scott, Peter Dale Scott’s father. This subject was treated in the form of a “retrospective” interview with PDS.

      – and my initial contact with the Corbett Report was certainly through Daniel Estulin and my fascination with the Institute for Policy Studies and the Chomsky/Warburg-driven creation of the so-called New Left.

    • nosoapradio says:

      ERRATUM: of course I meant “wallow in a little AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL self-indulgence. of course. just… for the record…
      anyhow

    As the 9/11 truth movement was petering out, there was still a vigorous and clear voice out there. Been following ever since.

    Grats on the anniversary. You’ve been very prolific.

    Making the PropOrNot list shows how influential you are.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Ditto here.
      I have followed and been active with 9/11 Truth since 2005. Followed 911blogger daily (TomT) for years and watched the movement fade.

      As the years went by, more and more I kept going to the Corbett Report.
      I needed a reliable news source which reported the facts, one which sorted out the confusions which surround so many topics.

      Corbett is sane and balanced and “real”. James communicates and writes extremely well. He cares. His motivations are clean.
      James Corbett does top-grade, professional research with verified sources. He discovers nuggets which I never would had found. Hyperbole and wild speculation are not part of Corbett’s style. (Thank God!)

      James Corbett has tremendously impressive insights on money, finance, economics, decentralization and Catallaxy or Catallactics – …a community based on exchange and friendship… …Cooperation and exchange are the very basis of human civilization. Economy and central planning are their antitheses….

      The Corbett Report offers SOLUTIONS and activism.
      It offers feedback and audience participation.
      It offers shared awareness and opinions.
      It offers “Open Source” avenues.

      An evolution of higher-realm concepts along with critical thinking takes place at the Corbett Report. Whether one agrees or not, doors are opened towards more realizations in dealing with our lives and society.

      And there are many more things I could say.

      • sentient33 says:

        Couldn’t have said it better, HRS! Thank you for that.

        I was enlightened by a friend of mine as to your existence, James. He referred to you as a “calm Alex Jones.”

        Hopefully you’re not insulted!!!

        I’ve been addicted ever since. I love your no-nonsense, in-depth, occasionally sarcastic analysis of world events. And the fact that you give links and references for all of your assertions is truly unique and refreshing – which of course it shouldnt’ be. You have become the gold standard of the TRULY alternative news genre.

        Keep up the good work and congrats on the big anniversary!

    Yes of course james Corbett.
    It must have been over a year now That I discovered the Corbettreport.
    I found it on the web In my search for social engineering.
    I have been for years already, What is called, a targeted individual.
    What the explication of this is is that a targeted individual Is organized gang stalk, This done by the deepstaat, Intelligence agencies, Secret societies and any non-breiner who they can involve. The Stalking happens with technologies that thay keep as good as out of the mainstream media. Mind reading technology, Voice to skull, Electromagnetic weapons, Poisoning and drugging ec.. Street theater is also being performed. these criminal activities are virtually unprovable. A victim must fight for his survival, since it is the goal to reduce the quality of life Until a victim commits suicide Or dies from cancer by the electromagnetic weapon’s.
    Because so many people are involved, And these are global programs.
    I was searching for social engineering on the web;
    Then I came to an episode of the Corbett Report.
    It was very informative and documented; So curiously I went looking further
    on this still mysterious website for me.
    I discovered more than hundred episodes; interview’s; Sunday update; Corbett Report radio; New world next week And highly elaborate Documentary films. (Al Qaida does not exist, Centuries of enslavement, How big oil conquered the world ec..) And all these golden information Was just free downloadable On this website. When I was heavy harassed and stalked, On the way to and from work, As well as at work and at home. I listened to this information for days, Episode after episode on MP3. It helped To complete the great puzzle I had in my mind how the world operates. colored in some puzzle pieces, Add and moved a few. Even my Harassers, Through the continuous surveillance they placed on me, Became aware of this information and the world they helped create. It reduced the stalking for some time. And gave me time to recover.
    But even outside from that was The Corbett Report a Good discovery for me.
    And was pleasant to hear the evolution that The Corbett Report has gone through episode after episode In that nine year James was busy, He changed from computer, server and other materials. As well as from single audio, To audiovisual. I hope for the best of humanity that this information remains available online. We can never know when it comes handy. I myself by being through all his information, Can not wait for a new episode; I remain excited. I want to give my best birthday wishes to The Corbett Report. Hope James his loved ones celebrate with him. Like the innumerable listeners around the entire world will do In spirit. It did not require any improved technology, neither fancy material. But a good man!!
    And planty more decades wishes to the report And the man behind it.

    I give you full right to use my information.
    because no matter how bad my English is, I must also speak the truth for the benefit of all people and their human rights.
    I’m Pieter Huylenbroeck a targeted individual from Belgium.

    Came across your site less than a year ago from the ‘related’ section on YouTube when digging for information on 9/11. I remember the first video I watched, you were talking about the fact that focusing all our energy on proving 9/11 was inside job will not solve anything, and that there were other important events that were worth investigation and understanding. Before this, I was living in another world, the asleep world that we were all in at one point. After reading and listening to your research and discovering the numerous and almost uncountable engineered problems and solutions that have been perpetrated by the global elites was a sickening, uncomfortable, and disturbing awakening for me, but I thank for you that. Your tireless research, passion, and objectivity on these subjects is unmatched anywhere else on the internet. Thank you for what you do, James.

  7. Ziinon says:

    Hi James!

    Congratulations on 10years! I do wish I would have found you much earlier than I did, but glad I did.

    I don’t do the internet very much and when I do, it’s for something very specific. In this case I was searching Dr. Mercola’s site, and he gave a free posting of “How Big Oil Conquered The World”. I watched that and subscribed immediately. You were the first ever internet subscription I’ve ever signed up for, and first podcast type I’ve ever watched, seriously was an internet\podcast virgin. Then binge watched everything I could get my hands and eyes on.

    I am still wanting more and think I’ll be purchasing your archive DVDs to support you, but also love all your stuff.

    I felt so alone in this world in our beliefs and views and finding you has been encouraging, reassuring, and damn refreshing! I want an “I heart James Corbett” t shirt to show the world. Might make one, it will be black with classic writing on the front and your website across the back shoulders. Hope that won’t bother you? I’ll send a photo when I get one made.

    Cannot thank you enough for all you do, and your eye opening amazing work! Plus, your voice is soothing to listen to, and your approach to many difficult topics is flawless! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    My name is Mica (my-ka) like the rock\mineral, and I am addicted to Corbett Report.

    Hello James,

    I too have become a Corbett Report addict for 2, maybe 3 years now, I don’t remember. I’ll be 67 in less than a month and for years have been disillusioned by Washington, its puppets and puppeteers. I haven’t voted in over ten years, what’s the point when it’s rigged?

    Back then, I had been drifting along some “alt-media” sites, I remember Alex Jones and not even getting all the way through his program before I exited. Maybe youtube led me to Corbett Report, but I found your presentations fact based, non political and parallel with my distrust of the ruling elite and the multi-level chess board. You help shine a light on the darkness at work, in the past and today.

    Of course, with all the eye opening information I get here, I’m more depressed than ever, but that’s OK. I never miss your presentations. Now I know there are other people like me in this screwed up world who don’t accept what the “powers that shouldn’t be” are trying to feed us.

    I once posted here that I likened you to a moonshiner of informational spirits, distilling events and ideas into a more pure and potent form. You did respond that you had never been called a “moonshiner”.

    This site is James’ Brew and yes, I am an addict. You do great work.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      Another Texan. There are a lot of Corbett members from Texas.

      • VoiceOfArabi says:

        Hello HRS, I hope you are doing well….

        From listening to my friends who studied in US of A.. if i had a choice to live in the USA, i too would choose Texas 🙂

        all the best.

      • HopefulOne says:

        Yes, and I am yet another Texan. I found Corbett Report about five years ago while I was reading the comments under an online MSM article, where some kind person had left the link to Corbett’s page within his comment-

        I clicked on that link and have stayed ever since. (I often wondered if that link had been done by another Texan) 🙂

        I have always seen in James the best of human qualities, always wanting the best for the other humans on the planet, while taking care that each word said is the absolute truth as far as can be determined. Everything is said with a sense of responsibility and care for all of us here.

        Congrats, James. Well done!

  9. nigel.m says:

    10 years is definately a milestone, James. I used to bounce in and out of several other alt news sites but nothing ever kept my attention for long. It was just last summer when a friend raved to me about the Corbett Report.
    Yes I was asleep for most of my life must admit now! A sheep as they say.

    So the Episodes “How Big Oil Conquered the World” and “Rockefeller Medicine” in particular I found to be extraordinarily beneficial to my understanding of the subjects. Those were the game changers.
    Now I always recommend to people and hope they try and raise awareness of all this content with their friends.
    So yep I’m a most grateful subscriber. Happy 10 James and here’s to the next 10 years hopefully.

  10. VoiceOfArabi says:

    How did i stumble on Corbett Report!.

    I decided to leave my job, and take few months off, which turned into longer than a year… it gave me time to reflect and open up to none MSM information as you have to “hunt” for it.

    Then i landed on Corbett Report website, which affirmed my inner thoughts, and linked me to other great sites like Boiling Frogs, etc etc.

    I think, the enemy is not “The Powers that shouldn’t be”!! I think the enemy are the masses of people (i mean us.. and i was one of those people), who are too busy with their daily lives to stop and reflect on the world as it is.

    “The Powers that shouldn’t be” own the media, which brain washes the masses, but the masses could easily put their fingers in their ears and stop this madness immediately. but that’s is not going to happen anytime soon as “the masses” are too busy chasing their own tail (a trick deployed by the same “The Powers that shouldn’t be” – otherwise called living up to your status.).

    in arabic we have a saying that goes… “God does not help people, until they first help themselves and get back on track!!”

    That’s your job James 🙂

    Keep up the great work and thank you for the last few months that i was a member.

    • VoiceOfArabi says:

      I forgot to mention that reading the book “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” by John Perkins was instrumental in my “wake up” and understanding that “all is not what it seems”

      I strongly recommend reading this book for anyone who is going through the waking up process and wants to get there “globally”.

      in fact… I think it should me MUST READ for all.

    • HomeRemedySupply says:

      I agree. The real threat is not “The Powers That Shouldn’t Be”. It starts with the unawareness of the masses.

      Men at some time are masters of their fates; The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are underlings.

      • generalbottlewasher says:

        H.R.S, your kind words reach me not anywhere but here. I cannot say. I have as of late a concern what we say today may be misunderstood tomorrow. In that uncertain future is it possible that all we are now is being keep for some tribunal in the future. Having known east Europeans who said it was unthinkable and unimaginable to them what the future would be after finishing highschool. Yes they were Polish askennazi Jews. I got a feeling that half their family didn’t get it. Fight or flight comes from the morphogenetic field, Dr. Sheldrake, Edwin Laszlow, Dr.Puthof have convinced me. Their public works may be their only way of warning us about what their research financiers ultimate use and goal will be. Think how the “THEY” would think. Find some brilliant spokes-person to fish-out(trigger-fish) future enemies of your future agendas.Yes, someone like Corbett,Dr.Steven Greer, Sibell Edmonds, anyone capably brilliant. In the past, The Nazis got people like Soros who fished-out the only thing they wanted,blood Jews. What could you do tomorrow with the subscriber list of just the 3 I’ve named. These subscribers will be deemed enemies of the powers that shouldn’t be. Political death warrants…yes very Orwellian. The time frame of action on their plans could be as little as 4 years. I would still be alive and like the family of Polish Jews would think it unimaginable in my life time as they thought it could be in their time to lose half their family. James is in the land of the rising sun, permanent US military headquarters, too close to be so subversive.Greer of course is financed by the Rockefeller machine, speak of any one brother and you speak of them all. Sibell is royal Iranian,can she get her fathers shadow and Shaw distant enough not to mention, what must you do to distance your self from the US Justice department? Bush & Cheney crushed many lifes with less threat offered. I hope I’m WRONG. That is not the future I want my thought to create but I got a feeling something I can’t shake. Hope you can understand. All creations are encircled by the negative space that encases it,creating the borderline. Which has dominion in reality? Can one exist without the other? I find a critics view sometimes more truthful than all the eloquent self-promotioms offered. The negative space may well remain hidden while the shining object blinds you, heard that before? In the American lexicon does the wall represent the border or the boundary between what’s been created and the negative space that encases the creation? I found Albert Pikes Morals and Dogma 1909 chpt:XXVIII pg.622 very helpful in understanding how the “THEY” think. The President did say something along the lines ” oh we’re gonna build it a bright shinny beautiful wall it will be” scary. I was so driven to find other directions of thought I read a very hard to get in JOklahoma Quigleys Trag.& Hope reprinted 1992; 966 pages. It was incomplete as Plumber stated on The Corb Reprt. So I found a 1st addition ,1348 pages, probably the best book on the shelf on how the” THEY” think and how American history molded contemporary identity. Wish Corbett had actually read it, my feeling might have deminished on him. Plumbers book “Tragedy and Hope 101” was spot-on.I find him to be authentic.I find the comment section so reveling. For instance,Your comments have been very intuitivly soothing, and empathizenly intellegent. Do you come from a medical background ? Your very friendly in general and almost to a fault try too hard. Please don’t misunderstand me Im jaded and don’t appreciate or understand this medium. The resent enlightenment of reality has dampened my natural hope in mankind. I have suffered the learning curves lessons before and completely rely on the morphogenetic field. Is that why they spray the nano-alluminm, to dumb down our intuition? Our spirit?

          • generalbottlewasher says:

            HOME REMEDY what’s the question. I did respond to one, but I really don’t know how to use this thing very well. Apparently it went somewhere other than where it was intended and was rather confusing. My mistake. However like Mulder “I want to believe”. Don’t follow any local anarchist movements in JOklahoma, it is just to dangerous. Can’t even get envoled with the ACLU same. Yes McCelenden probably was twep-ed however he was known to drive like a bat out off hell. Very reckless. Did you link in the Anthony speeches? Everyone should watch Brando and LISTEN to the message. Today,16-75-150 years ago, we have the same such Honorable Men! BRILLIANT!!! Swear, I’m going down tomorrow and learn how to blue-line link the links on this device, so embarrassing. It makes every contribution so much more interesting. Here is where I would have a link to “Killers of the Flower Moon” by David Grann. The distinctions between a real American hero like Tom White and a bureau technocrat shit like J.Edgar Hoover encapsulates the same struggles that persist today. We just cannot hide our dis-stink-shon of being the birth place of big oil and the kekstocracy who honed their skills in Joklahoma at the turn of the century. Not much has changed since. The land of many Honorable Men.

            for my person the content of a message is only important and not how the person applies grammar and text structure. Because I’m aware of the fact not all people has that ability. Even when a message is full with misspellings this doesn’t bother me. @ skool / school I hated when we had grammar klazzez / classes. This is a tool to brainwash young Citz /kids and some of these citz later when they grew up, behave as their teachers 🙂 🙂 I have una amigahhh Argentininahhhhhh and she misspells with purpose her writings and the way she does that, is for me like art.

                I understand the points of view when it comes to grammar, spelling and text layout, etc.

                A key aspect is much like mkey points out: “Delivery of the communication so that the receiver of the communication grasps the exact message (concepts) of the sender.”
                Of course, volumes have been written on this topic.

                But it does underscore the value of “agreed upon” terms (word definitions), grammar, structure, layout, tone, etc.
                Concepts and understandings are reliant upon a clean communication. Confusions and misunderstandings definitely result when communication is muddy.

                I posit that part of the problem with the many folks who are “not awake” is that there are barriers which prevent them from grasping concepts, from actually receiving a clean communication.

                Corbett definitely shines on his communication delivery. Often he shapes his communication towards different audiences (categories of recipients).

                There are audiences…the more informed and the less informed, the pissed-off and the apathetic and the cheerful, the educated and the illiterate, English speakers and non-English speakers, etc. One would deliver a different style of communication to a 4 year old, as opposed to an adult.
                Example: One would never cheerfully, jokingly communicate to a very angry wife. Explosions occur.

              • Pablo de Boer says:

                Hola aloha mceiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii,

                The parasitic rulers use words which a big amount of people doesn’t understand and they rephrase their words especially with the purpose of changing the detail or perspective of the original idea. They do this so consistently so that they can hide their true intentions for the majority of the people. But grammatical and the sentence structure is correct and with paragraphs just like they learned at school.

                As I already shared here with your person an others, I live now in Holland and the Dutch elitists and their straw-(wo)men were disgusting slave masters and slave traders. Until not so long ago the Dutch Monarchocracy (ruled and governed by self-appointed royal inbreeders) and their obedient puppets as professors, other scholars and of course their politicians tried to hidden this dark period of the Dutch history. The Netherlands not only illegally occupied Indonesia, because they occupied other pieces of land like Surinam aka Dutch Guiana and Netherlands Antilles. Suriname has freed itself from the Dutch colonial Chains, but this happened violently and the violence was not against the Dutch but against civilians and politicians. Google self if you want to know more about this. And the Dutch Antilles are still occupied by the Dutch conquistadores… The slaves who were abused there in past and who were Illiterate, developed their own languages Papiamento (Dutch Antilles) and Sranan Tongo or Sranantongo (“Surinamese tongue”). Papiamento is a language derived from African and Portuguese languages with some influences from American Indian languages, English, Dutch and Spanish and created and evolved by the African slaves. In the beginning they only spoke this language, because they were illiterate. Sranan Tongo’s lexicon is a fusion of English, Dutch, Portuguese and Central and West African languages. It began as a pidgin spoken primarily by African slaves in Suriname who often did not have a common African language. Sranan also became the language of communication between the slaves and the slave-owners, as the slaves were not permitted to speak Dutch. As other ethnic groups were brought to Suriname as contract workers, Sranan became a lingua franca. Papiamento or Papiamentu is the most-widely spoken language on the Caribbean ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao).

                Thus both languages were created and evolved by slaves who(m) were illiterate and couldn’t write and didn’t use paragraphs. And when later people began to transit these languages in written letters andwords, this happened:

                Papiamento is written in Aruba as Papiamento and in Curaçao as Papiamentu and in Bonaire as Papiamen……..

                Saludos and enjoy la vida ………….

    PART 1

    The first Iraqi war of 1991, created through what I perceived to be murky diplomacy, and strangely featured “embedded” journalists in Operation Desert Storm that drove Iraq from Kuwait, had already given me some flashes of red warning lights. This among the first surfacings of my awakening, and involved feelings of cognitive dissonance.

    I didn’t start to significantly wake up until about 17 years ago, when for personal reasons I became deeply involved in the Colombia web board at CNN’s site, and then the Venezuela one. I have enough español to be able to follow the related news and information. The US military operations and foreign policy stance in this geographic region seemed at odds with my then-naive understanding of US national security objectives. This raised questions I subsequently tried to answer, and thereby fit into my personal world view.

    Then, for reasons that we can only speculate about, CNN closed ALL the message boards on their site. In retrospect I came to believe that the elimination of the CNN message boards was a prelude to the desired information control by the new Bush-Cheney administration in Washington. Gotta stay on message. It may be that CNN eventually re-introduced something similar, but I never ever went back.

    My awareness spiked with the confusing reports of events surrounding the World Trade Centre buildings on Sep 11, 2001. And then the unbelievable propaganda from the new administration was played out for the world media in general: you’re either with us or against us. The speciousness of war in Afghanistan and, more disturbingly to me, the illogical focus on war with Iraq, really had me wide awake now and openly questioning the US maneuvering on the global stage. The whole concept of the western version of democracy also started to peek out of the shadows.

    Since that time it has been a steady process of analyzing the “news” with skepticism, and forming a framework for why things were being explained as they were. I started to be wrankled by a lot of what was put forward as analysis. It was a steady accretion. I stopped watching TV in general because it seemed vulgar and trite, and then dropped the news in particular because the body language and smarminess of the talking heads was curiously annoying to me. I continued to read selected newspapers, but as my on-line time increased I dropped newspapers, too, because the on-line news was more timely, and much broader in international scope.

    …continued as PART 2

    I could just congratulate you on 10 years of evolving success, James, but I’m feeling expansive tonight 🙂

    PART 2

    I had long ago dropped CNN and the other major American news sites, where news was subordinate to entertainment “news” —the star culture— and for a long time took my world-view information only at CBC and BBC (please don’t laugh). My on-line interests were more along historical research lines, and some select gaming sites, so I wasn’t really bumping into what are now termed alternate media sites.

    Eventually, though, the cross-pollination of the alternate media sites opened up many new sources of information and I sampled widely. Just as you can educate your palate through gastronomic experiment, you ultimately find flavours that are more suited to your personal tastes, and I have developed, as I’m sure many others do, a trap line of preferred sites that I regularly visit, and critically review the variety of topics on offer. As these sites unfold to me, I find some more from links in what are then trusted favourites. I also drop others as their initial attraction fails to follow up with similarly valid, informative, and interesting content.

    This erratic personal odyssey within the world of the internet smorgasbord finally led me to The Corbett Report just over two years ago. Initially this was through YouTube, which I felt favourably showcased James’ distinctive presentation style. That, naturally enough, enticed me onto The Corbett Report website. After about a year, this became the first website that I ever subscribed to. Part of the reason for that was to be able to comment on articles and videos, although for the longest time I contributed nothing in this regard. The major motivation was simply to show my support for what I considered premium content.

    I am continually impressed by the diversity of James’ targetted interests, and recognize how industrious he is behind the scenes. He makes the time to read (with obvious understanding) le travail important written by scheduled guests. By whatever methodologies, he deeply researches his wide-ranging subjects and critically hones in on the key, if less-than-obvious, implications of the subject in question.

    Perhaps it’s the sea air, or the aesthetics of the local flora, or maybe a philosophical tone in the local music, but something provides James with the mental calm and clarity to deeply analyze his subject. And he projects a friendly, engaging persona that speaks to, and embraces, his audience. No shrill diatribes, no pompous assertions, in fact no ragged edges at all.

    It’s always a pleasure to hear what you have to say, James, and I add my thanks to those above for doing what you do. Another 10 years? Let’s hope so. I mean with the deranged “we can win a thermonuclear war” rhetoric emanating from Washington, we should all be so lucky.

        Thank you for that kind and generous comment.

        For me, writing is hard work. I feel compelled to introduce my own spider’s web of relevant context, because without that I fear I’ll be misunderstood. So, I have to be “in the mood” to compose for posting. (No, not an assisted kind of mood:) )

        You also made me realize that I’d failed to mention another key component of The Corbett Report: the posters. I’ve come to appreciate the level of intelligence and decency that is usually displayed in the comment sections. Posters regularly provide additional, informative URL links, and many also appear as comfortable as I now do in expressing a little bit of the personal experience behind their point of view.

        Also, while I’ve yet to notice anything explicit on the subject of comment moderation on this site —in whole or in part— it must be there. The comment sections are marvellously free of “garbage”, so for that we may again express thanks to our host.

        • nosoapradio says:

          Yes! All hail the posters on the Corbett Report who are of an exceptionally “Grand cru” and the excellently managed forum that is “marvellously free of garbage”!

    Thank you so much James. I cannot do justice to the positive effect you’ve had on me (and clearly many others)

    Awaking from my slumber back in 2007 I was thrown into the world of alternative news. This was a place of truth and consequences where one must be careful to figure what is truth before one suffers the inevitable consequences of posting or believing something false.

    After a couple of years I found only a handful of sites I could really trust. The Corbett Report has always been factual and has never led me astray.

    It was this long term truthful relationship which gave me the confidence to subscribe and support your efforts.

    Keep up the good work James!

    I honestly don’t remember how I stumbled upon you James, it’s been awhile, but from what I can remember it was definitely during the early years of 9/11 truth.

    I remember watching CNN one day and Bush and co. were suddenly eager to attack Iraq, and I was like whoa this makes no sense and decided to research 9/11 on the Internet and found a bunch of people that I never even knew existed before, some surprisingly had made a name for themselves prior to 9/11, namely Bill Cooper.

    Alex Jones really knew how to work the Internet algorithms and became popular real quick, and at first I liked his energetic aggressive manner, but after awhile it kinda wears off, and in the mix of all my researching I remember listening to one of your pod-casts and liking your calm, articulate way of laying out the facts.

    So going from memory, it was probably around the time David Ray Griffin came out with his book “The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions”

    Anyways, keep up the good work!

    I find it interesting that many comments refer to their awakening of 9/11.

    • mkey says:

      It was a catalytic event. One was supposed to sink deeper into insanity or be tazed into reality by cognitive dissonance.

      • HomeRemedySupply says:

        I hear ya. To me, there is an inference here which includes a solutional pathway to waking-up others. – 9/11 Truth

        I consider the fraud of 9/11 as foundational. Once an individual becomes aware of the fraud of 9/11, the person often “goes down the rabbit hole” and explores the many other deceptions which exist. The other frauds start to collapse once a person awakens to the 9/11 fraud. (5 minutes – The Official 9/11 Story – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuC_4mGTs98 )

        EVOLUTION – An evolution in awareness occurs as a person discovers the deceptions. Often a person continues to research, gain knowledge and become more enlightened. At a certain stage in maturity, an individual recognizes that it is important to “do something”.

        • mkey says:

          I’d say that the breaking point is the realization that “yes, they would do something like that” as this blind belief is the only thing holding everything together.

          I was looking for two videos, but they may have gone down the memory hole.

          One shows massice damage on wtc7 done by wtc1 in free fall. It was a rather deep, broad gush tall 20 floors or more.

          The other shows one weird anomaly shot by TV news camera on a supposed burning Pentagon wall. The anomaly is seen as a wavy wall, bending like a piece of tarp under the firefighter water jet. It obviosly had the wall texture on it. Can you point me in the direction of any of these?

          • HomeRemedySupply says:

            Not off-hand. Don’t know.

            • mkey says:

              Both very seminal videos. One puts a spin “no plane hit wtc7” angle with a prolific “wtc1 hit wtc7” while the other serves as a perfect opener for “media used CGI on 9/11” type of conversations.

              Too bad at the time I didn’t see the value of creating local copies of such important videos.

                http://www.checktheevidence.com/cms/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=451&Itemid=60

                Embedded within this content is a Youtube video of a 9/11 3D Analysis of the WTC South Tower Impact (2016 update video) by electrical engineer Richard D. Hall

              • mkey says:

                Thanks for the link, but it doesn’t really relate to what I was commenting on. Similarly to what I answered to herrqlys above, this video is a perfect example of a mashup of many theories, some of which don’t hold much water. The entire Judy Wood thing stinks a lot in my view.

              • Aron says:

                Sorry I misinterpreted your comment regarding the “no planes” proposition.

                I would agree with you that there is a mash up of many theories in the 9/11 saga. Anyone who has followed this closely knows this and realizes there are agents throwing out stories to confuse, misdirect, and cover up, including the official story and many alternative theories.

                Regarding the 3D analysis presented by Richard Hall, he simply disproved the dis-info agents story purporting that the plane we all saw on TV crashing into the south tower was created through video fakery (i.e., they were misdirecting us to suggest that nothing hit the tower). Hall proved through his thorough scientific analysis of all the good quality videos on that day, and from all different angles, that some sort of projectile did hit the south tower because all the independent videos lined up very closely in his 3D model using official sources of radar and satellite data.

                Anyone who has examined the impact videos closely of the so-called plane crashing into the south tower ought to question the physical evidence witnessed, namely that the plane appeared to enter the building like a knife through butter, no collapsing wings, no debris falling outside the tower, etc. This does not seem possible when you consider the wings are made of light weight aluminum and the tower’s structure is made of steel. Similar sorts of impossible impact scenarios were observed at the Pentagon and Shanksville, available for viewing on Youtube. Mr. Corbettt also produced a video showing the impossible corkscrew manuevre of a so-called plane on its route to the Pentagon. One does not have to speculate too far based on all the corroborative evidence that large commercial airplanes could not have been used to impact all the targets on that day.

                From there, Hall speculates that a cloaking device may have been used to give the appearance that a plane hit the south tower, when perhaps it was a missile (possibly a tomahawk missile). While this is not proven, it is not outside the realm of possibility particularly if you believe there are organizations behind the scenes developing new technology for military and other purposes.

                My mind is open to any new logical explanation of what happened on 9/11 contray to my own current conclusions. Perhaps I’ll be in a grave someday without an answer. C’est la vie! Life is too precious to make this event a centre piece in my life. However, simply brushing it to the side and letting these perpetrators off the hook is not an option either in my opinion. Only by uncovering the truth of what happened on that day will allow for any hope of tracing the event back to the true perpetrators.

                Best

              • mkey says:

                Of course it’s important to have these people brought to justice (i.e. to have them hang) but squabbling about technical aspects of what exactly traspired isn’t a checkpoint on the road to that goal.

                In other words, even if we proved what exactly happened that day, how would that help the public at large deal with it, assume the responsibility and put these war criminals to trial? There is no substantial difference between knowing what exactly happened and knowing what they said happened didn’t happen.

                All those years later, do we know with 100% certainty what happened to Lusitania or the entire event leading to Pearl Harbor or who killed JFK? Many people are still waiting on classified documents becoming “unclassified” ffs. As if these people will tell the truth. With all compartmentalization going not even occasional whistleblower can shed significant light.

                These are all red herrings and we should beware. Its not about figuring out how they did it, but to come to terms with the fact that they did it.

              • Aron says:

                I appreciate your comment and by and large probably have more in common that not, but I disagree with you that we should just forget about what brought down the WTC complex. If it is true that huge amounts of tax dollars were used to fund secret technology to bring down the WTC complex, how is that not relevant for you and me and everyone else to know? There is evidence of tax dollar diversion (e.g., Donald Rumsfeld admits the day before 9/11 that the Pentagon can’t account for 2.3 trillion dollars in it’s budget) and this idea of funding secret technology is not beyond the realm of possibilities with evidence to support it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnlFaAL7SQg).

                Following this line of thinking, finding out what brought down the complex could expose the massive fraud that the US government has inflicted upon the people and also reveal the technology. The technology could be used for good and has potential to help de-slave us all from our appointed masters. To most, this may all seem like science fiction and not relevant to the core issue of convicting the perpetrators at the top of the pyramid, but to each their own. I’ve done my research and see this idea is not beyond the possible. It certainly warrants further investigation.

                Have a good day

              • mkey says:

                When these events occur, there are a million false clues leading to nowhere or, on a rare occasion when they do lead to something, to a suicided corpse.
                There are better ways to use these resources, time and manpower. I’m not saying people shouldn’t know, I’m saying, looking back at past events, people will very probably never know, no matter how many theories are put forth. I’d even go on a limb and state that, more theories are developed, lesser the chance to get to the truth, due to the people’s squabbling nature and associated dissipation of energy nad resources.

                There’s also a very dangerous effect of disproving by association, where people tend to ignore 3 or 4 good questions among a dozen frivolous ones.

                If indeed an advanced weapon was used, it could be beneficial but with the masses becoming aware of it it could become mainstream. People get normalized to such things so that sword cuts both ways.

                If I had to choose between knowing what happened and having these bastards hang, I wouldn’t take even one moment to think about it. I’m not certain many feel the same. People get hung up over such matters and it becomes an obsession. I see that just as another distraction.

      • herrqlys says:

        Could this be the WTC7 one?

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ujps2oCA-nU

        I got that link from http://www.911history.de/aaannxyz_ch01_en.html

        In turn, I got that German site source from a YouTube interview with the site creator. The site content concerns 9/11 as a nuclear event (mini-nuke). This site also references some other experts on thermite, directed energy weapons, nuclear fusion, etc. One of these people features in another must-see video, one that, so far, I find the most appropriate:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaI1bAb6XmY

        Dimitri Khalezov
        …a former Soviet citizen, a former commissioned officer of the so-called “military unit 46179”, otherwise known as “the Special Control Service” of the 12th Chief Directorate of the Defense Ministry of the USSR.

        The Special Control Service, also known as Soviet atomic (later “nuclear”) intelligence was a secret military unit responsible for the detection of nuclear explosions (including underground nuclear tests) of various adversaries of the former USSR, as well as being responsible for ensuring observance of the various international treaties related to nuclear testing and peaceful nuclear explosions.

        After September 11, 2001 Khalezov undertook some extensive 9/11 research and proved that the Twin Towers of World Trade Center as well as its building 7 were demolished by three underground thermo-nuclear explosions – which earned the very name “ground zero” to the demolition site. Moreover, he testifies that he knew about the in-built so-called “emergency nuclear demolitions scheme” of the Twin Towers as long ago as back in the ‘80s – while being a serviceman in the Soviet Special Control Service.

        When you search YouTube for “9/11 nuclear” you will encounter an amazing body of work about this subject. So far, my take-aways are that:
        1) the aerial impacts were to create high point vents in the buildings,
        2) a subterranean mini-nuke created an energy plume, directed by the venting, that gutted the interior structures,
        3) timed thermite charges cut/collapsed the building’s remaining exterior steel support frame so as to have the building residuals fall into their own footprint,
        4) only a nuclear explosion contained the requisite amount of energy to demolish such massive structures in the way they were, and create the incredible amount of pulverized rock, concrete and other materials thrown up/out into the air, with vertical cloud signatures typical of underground nuclear explosions,
        5) the memorial water pools were designed because water is an effective blanket for radioactivity. Spectroscopic analysis of the dust residues, and observations of the type of peripheral corrosion to nearby buildings and parked vehicles, reveal the appropriate chemical signatures/ratios of an underground nuclear blast.

        Anyway, pick some videos and judge it all for yourself.

        • mkey says:

          That isn’t the one. That video shows many shots, but the are most from the same angle. The gush in wtc7 occurred on the side which is covered in smoke most of the time, probably because the entire building was set afire when wtc1 ripped it open.

          The shot I’m talking about was maybe taken from the American Express building, the angle and elevation could be right. The shot really show wtc1 tearing into wtc7, hot knife through butter stuff.

          http://imgur.com/1ry0M0j

          Regarding these theories on how the buildings were brought down, my personal opinion is that I don’t really care about the exact method. Obviously, the thermite alone wasn’t used because it doesn’t account for dust. There are many theories about subterranean nukes and nuke grids placed all over the building. Energy weapons as well. Honestly, I think fantasizing on this issue is a waste of time and we probably will never know the full, unaltered truth. We should stick to our guns instead. There are many things we can be certain about (like countless idiotic lies and bad acts from politicians) and they should be given advantage over these issues with a zillion variables. Just my .02.

        • generalbottlewasher says:

          Herrqlys, I’ ve never heard this theory about nuclear caverns under WTC. Call me crazy but it sounds very plausible.It seems easy to prove to me but how much will can be generated to do so?How one might ask? In Joklahoma we do a lot of drilling, core sampling and analysis. Directional drilling in granite can be done. Cheap too since we’d be only going , as Dimitri says only 200meters. Run (pull)a core through the suspected circumference of the blast and debris area and you would have the proof. Drill a small bore and insert a radiation censor, measure the radiation which I’m sure would still be off the charts from the normal found in granite. However, there is something harder to find than proof of an nuclear bomb. The will of “we the people” to take the Red Pill. Mkey had some thoughts on that side of the equation. Are there any legal minds out there in the Corbett matrix that can clearly state how to proceed once we come to realize a crime against humanity has been perpetrated on “we the humanity”?

    Like many I am sure, my first experience with your work was viewing the “9/11 in 5 minutes” video on YouTube. From that point onward, whenever I would hear your familiar voice in other videos that popped up in my regular “conspiracy browsing” I knew to pay attention to what you had to say. I only became a subscriber on your site within the last year as I found that you consistently had the most reliable and insightful information of ANY “alt media” source on the internet, with just the right tone in your commentary. I had realized after supporting multiple well-meaning but failed presidential campaigns that voting is meaningless and decided to put my support behind someone who was in the weeds informing people.

    It is impossible to state the value of the work that you do, and the courage you have in putting your name and face out there while exposing lesser known truths. You bring clarity and sanity to the insane, contradictory and confusing “official” picture of the world that is plastered up around us. You are one of the last few uncensored guiding lights of truth in an ever murkier swamp of disinformation.

    Congratulations on having the patience and persistence to build what you have built. Happy 10 years!

    One of the odd ones that was not won over by 9/11.

    I have a good friend, Michael Bennett (whom Corbett actually interviewed!). He was always digging into the hidden things in our world and would share insights and discoveries with me. I am a Christian, and I was at the time mixed up in the whole “Gotta be a Republican/Conservative to be a Christian” view, which seems entirely daft to me now. Anyways, I had trouble digesting things he was telling me, about the corruption of the parties and government. He mentioned Bohemian Grove and how largely Republicans went there, and it sounded decidedly non-Christian.

    Some years later during Republican nomination and the whole ISIS terror-propaganda in full swing, I began to really question what was going on. How could ISIS literally come out of nowhere? Why were all the Republicans sounding the same, and how could Donald Trump be considered a morally right choice!?

    So one odd day later I was in a news comment section, saw discussion about the evil behavior of Republicans behind the scenes. Someone provided a link to Corbett Report. I don’t even remember what the first video was. But I began to research Bohemian Grove and I learned just how awful our “leaders” really were. I learned of how they lied and manipulated behind the scenes, using hatred of Muslims, false flags…

    I realized no presidential nominee was going to save this country, so I turned back to faith in God not in government and politics. Parties were a lie. I have since followed the rabbit hole further and I feel more free then I ever have.

    Thank you James!

    James,

    Sadly, there aren’t that many alternative journalists who come off as honest, genuine truth seekers. So when I kept seeing your videos posted on a forum I’m a member of, I ended up looking at more of what you do here, and had to join in. What I appreciate most is that you don’t get sucked into the drama and hype that the Lamestream media operates under. You speak on topics many alternative journalists won’t cover. Although I wasn’t around for it, I think what your doing here is what real journalists used to do. At least I hope that’s what they used to do, hah.

    Congrats on 10 years. And congrats on not falling into the trap of trying to get too big too fast and getting indebted to someone like Pierre Omydyar! :O

    Hi James,
    Stumbled on a video of yours after i had watched a couple of doco’s by Adam Curtis and was looking for more. After watching your critique of his work it certainly advanced my understanding of how subtle counter intelligence can be and the notion of how less can be more when trying to create a credible stooge ala Noam Chomsky, as in the bigger body of credible work they can have, the more power they have to spin a specific lie on a specific topic.
    Sadly that didnt grab me as a regular and it wasnt till about a year later that i saw 911 – A conspiracy theory. This was only a couple of years ago, and i had been ‘awake’ to some extent for a good 10 years previous. Not sure how i had missed this clip with the amount of views it has had. Anywho, Im not kidding when i say this is the best 5 minutes ‘the internet’ has ever produced. The profound irrefutable evidence you lay down, carried with a comedy flavour that not only makes the vid stick in peoples heads, but also points out the sheer insanity of the situation is truly a masterpiece. James i know your guests often comment on the great ‘work’ that you do, but past the hours of diligent work, you truly do have an amazing talent for communication, be it in print or on screen. I think you are the perfect storm to carry these messages, as, for all the heady stuff you put out, it just wouldn’t have the same ‘purchase’ for people if it wasn’t delivered in such an articulate, logical way. Thanks for everything James. Long may it continue.
