The Greatest Trick of All

04/25/2022107 Comments

Magic is the ability to make someone believe something that isn't true. It follows, then, that most great magicians are keen observers of human psychology and that magic routines are, at base, a skillfully arranged set of techniques for preying on our cognitive biases.

As impressive as the rabbit-from-hat illusions and the sleight-of-hand deceptions of the masters of stagecraft can be, however, these parlor tricks pale in comparison to the societal manipulations that are conducted by the masters of statecraft every day.

Case in point: martial law. I have long said that when martial law actually comes to the "free and democratic" West, people will be cheering it on. In case you didn't believe me, I present the phenomenon of the public cheering on the most egregious abuses of medical martial law over the past two years as evidence for my contention. All it took was a concerted campaign to get people to fear coronavirus, and suddenly the very same people who once denounced those warning of martial law as "conspiracy theory" were loudly applauding the jackbooted thugs of the COVID-1984 police state in their harassment of elderly women and innocent children and random citizens.

Yes, it's one thing to theorize about the Stockholm Syndrome that allows—in the memorable words of Aldous Huxley—"the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude." It's another thing to actually see it taking place.

This ability to get the public on board with policies and practices that are self-evidently against their own interest is not just surprising. I am here to argue that it is a type of magic trick.

I mean this in two key senses of the idea of a "magic trick." Firstly, the would-be social engineers' ability to reliably martial support for ideas and actions that would have been dismissed as lunacy mere moments before is, at first glance, so incredible as to be magical. But secondly, and perhaps more importantly, this magic, like all such sleight-of-hand, is, at bottom, precisely that: a trick.

Today, let's take a look up the sleeve of the magicians of social control, expose the tricks they use to garner public support for their agenda, and see how we can break the spell they have cast over the masses.

Do you know about the cheap parlor tricks that the social engineers employ to gain your consent? In this month's edition of The Corbett Report Subscriber, James exposes the magicians' tricks. Also, stick around for a Subscriber Exclusive video in which James introduces video editor Broc West to the wild world of (ice) hockey.

    Wait wait wait…

    So Corbett believes that hokey, preposterous, clumsy, and obviously-scripted Derren Brown video?

    Now THAT’S the greatest trick!

    • Zatoichi says:

      haha yeah no way this is real I am with you there.

      Other than that, great article. “Magic is the ability to make someone believe something that isn’t true”, this is a really nice definition I never thought of it like that. My five year old son just recently asked me what magic is, because there was a magician doing some tricks for kids at the mall. I struggled to answer him in a satisfying way. Now I can give him an update, thanks!

      • Duck says:

        Look up some NLP tricks on YouTube if you want to see magic….Neuro linguistic Programming is pretty much what most magic is.

        Derian Brown is a bit of a creepy poser but the tricks he does are all possible to do, though (I expect) the MAIN way he gets good results is by picking the subjects very very carefully beforehand just like s stage hypnotist does.

    • ztaco says:

      Care to explain why you don’t like about the video more and maybe provide sources? Do you believe this one video you dont like discredits the whole article?

      • Fact Checker says:

        “Do you believe this one video you dont like discredits the whole article?”

        I didn’t say that at all. It is just a baaaaaaaad example for Corbett to use.

        “Care to explain why you don’t like about the video more and maybe provide sources?”

        Such is the hilariously suggestible mind of the goy. The goy takes at face value a slickly-produced, heavily and professionally-edited, and facially outlandish little television segment. Then, if someone points at the utter outlandishness of the television program, the goy demands “proof” and “sources” for the idea that the television program manipulated him. Of course, the goy never demanded “proof” that the television show was accurate. He never asked to see the unedited film feels. He never asked to cross-examine the paid participants. He never scrutinized the television show at all, but instead took on implicit faith that it was what it purported to be, no matter how blatantly incredible. So he imposes a burden of proof on the skeptic far beyond the (nonexistent) burden he placed on the initial storyteller, who spun the initiating tale out of whole cloth and Hollywood magic.

        Once an idea, an image, or a narrative is planted in the mind of the goy, it is virtually impossible to dislodge. He “takes it and runs,” as they say, incorporating it as part of his overall schema of the world, no matter how preposterous. This flaw of the goyish mind is known as the primacy effect, and is pithily encapsulated by the saying, “It’s easier to fool a man than to convince him he’s been fooled.”

          Since you are such a “professional pundit reviewer-carper critic” with a penchant for belittling, denouncing, denigrating and detracting with hairsplitting quibbling rants like a whining crybaby, then you should write your own glorious, profoundly insightful, referenced article about “The Greatest Trick of All”.

          • Steve Smith says:

          • Fact Checker says:

            O great, now HRS joins in the chorus of ad personam and ad hominem irrelevencies against poor old Fact Checker.

            I was quite content with YOUR welcome policy of ignoring me, too! How bored are you clowns?

            Don’t you 3 Stooges realize that you’ve never actually addressed an argument in your pugnacious, dim-witted little lives? None of you EVER address arguments. You just lash out with infantile emotionalism, to everything, attacking me, the Fact Checker, even though I’m just an anonymous rando about whom you know absolutely nothing. It’s all shadow-boxing against some fantasy you have about me: I’m an agent, or a demon, or an entire government agency of crack literary craftsmen seducing young maidens into lives of chastity…for evil (?!). It adds zero value. Try making an argument, for once…or, better yet, just ignore me and I will gladly return the favor, just as I have consistently done until this recent three-way tandrum by youze geniussez.

            The great thing about anonymous online discussion is SUPPOSED to be that the participants are FORCED to address ideas and arguments, precisely because all the identities involved are unknown. But youze geniussez make every desperate effort to drag down the level of debate to vulgar personal insults, and insane imaginary attacks at personal pride . You’re too goddam dumb to understand that you can’t injure the pride of someone whom you don’t know, who doesn’t know you, and who knowns you don’t know him. So all your petty personal attacks amount to empty text boxes on these boards.

          • Fact Checker says:

            “Show you how it’s done?” I can’t show youze geniussez any more than I already have, and am doing right now. By example. Look back at these recent threads that have inspired these sudden fowl-mouthed personal attacks on me. Not one was, itself, a personal attack. Ever. Poor Fact Checker can cite the goddamn Bible only to be met with weird, personal psychologizing attacks from the fowl-mouthers. It NEVER fails. Every. Single Time.

            “Your description sounds autobiographical….”

            “It says more about your own life experiences than the book”

            Uh…you don’t even know me playboy. And I don’t know you. And I don’t care. But at least I don’t pretend as if I know and care.

            There’s this fowl-mouthed pathology where EVERY point is personally felt, and therefore is met with a personal attack. It’s pathetic. It’s infantile. I can do without it, and the board at large would benefit. Make it about the ideas. The arguments. Address them in context, rather than hysterically shifting the context to broad personal attacks. That’s how an argument progresses and reveals new things. Personal attacks are just thread-crapping. And the fowl-mouthers have no shortage of guano in their hindquarters, bursting out promiscuously.

            Try shitcanning the personal attacks. It will force you to engage with the ideas and arguments at issue, which (if you manage that) will elevate your consciousness on any given point, whether you win the argument or lose it. This is because it will force to to reevaluate, reorganize, and further flesh out beliefs and ideas that you cherish, while also identifying your own unfounded prejudices that should be discarded after all.

            • Steve Smith says:

              This day just keeps getting better!
              Poor old fackchecker 😭😩

            • HomeRemedySupply says:

              Fact Checker,
              Actually, I do apologize. I really do. It is inappropriate for me to evaluate your trademark characteristics on these comment boards so harshly.
              I got carried away with the adjectives and adverbs. It was so wildly over-the-top with descriptives that I started laughing and laughing and laughing, and then hit submit.
              At the time, the phrasing hit my funny bone, but was not meant to be hateful.

            • cu.h.j says:

              Making arguments about ideas is a good idea. Some ideas are presented with biases toward negativity which also taint discussions.

              Things have been bad for many people who have had to decide to take an unnecessary research drug or lose their jobs and be able to support themselves and their family.

              Forced vaccination does have historical precedent during the small pox epidemic, so people have faced similar or worse choices and conditions.

              Perhaps conditions have been worse for humanity in the past then they are now, or perhaps they are worse now. I don’t know. What I do know is that our lives are composed of time and that some of us at the present time are relatively comfortable, have food and friendship and love and it’s important to take note of what goodness is there rather than focus exclusively on the negative.

              Every person is biased, no person is completely objective. It’s also good to keep that in mind when we look at our own thoughts.

              To be honest, some perspectives shared by religious believers here are dogmatic and a bit rigid in my opinion and so are some of the ideas you share FC are equally dogmatic and rigid. There must be a middle ground and a way to communicate that allows for mutual understanding and perhaps some solutions.

              And I’m sorry to hear about your job FC. But I do think that you should be able to find other work because you appear to have a sharp intellect. In fact, I think you’re a very skilled writer.

              • Fact Checker says:

                Hey, I appreciate all that, cu hj, and it’s good to see you back around. I feel like it’s been a while?

                “some of the ideas you share FC are equally dogmatic and rigid”

                I would genuinely like to hear about that. Which views and to which “dogma” are they derived?

                I pride myself in being 100% dogma-free, so if I’ve got some official church slogan stowing away somewhere in my rap, I’d like to isolate it and purge it pronto!

              • cu.h.j says:

                Perhaps dogmatic was not the right word. I would have to read the definition. What I mean is that it sometimes seems that you are convinced we are doomed, that humanity will be assimilated into some borg-like slavery and you express certainty in this view. I don’t know if we have enough information to make that conclusion with certainty. It’s true that we will all die and so are “on death row” so to speak.

                I’ve been taking a break after the death of an elderly family member.

              • cu.h.j says:

                Webster’s online definition of dogmatic:

                “1: characterized by or given to the expression of opinions very strongly or positively as if they were facts
                a dogmatic critic
                2: of or relating to dogma (see DOGMA)”

              • cu.h.j says:

                And there are many people who are existing as borg-like slaves, in a state of mass psychosis. I experience it every day among colleagues who continue to take boosters that make them ill and justify this to themselves. It’s really creepy and irrational. To see people who become sick with this supposed disease who have had 4 jabs already and yet to continue to take them seeing with their own eyes how in effective they are.

                But there are still many people who see through the scam and are trying to make a difference, what you call “the remnant” of humanity. And even among some of the people who took the jab are waking up to this insanity in parts of the world. This may make a difference, not certainly but it might. There is a chance.

              • Fact Checker says:

       has the meaning more precisely restated: “1. relating to or of the nature of a dogma or dogmas or any strong set of principles concerning faith, morals, etc., as those laid down by a church; doctrinal

                This reconciles with my print Webster’s New World from the ancient date of 1990 as to dogma: “doctrine, tenet; belief esp. a body of theological doctrines strictly adhered to.
                The fuller definition of has it as follows: 1. “an official system of principles or tenets concerning faith, morals, behavior, etc., as of a church.
                2. a specific tenet or doctrine authoritatively laid down, as by a church:
                the dogma of the Assumption; the recently defined dogma of papal infallibility.
                3. prescribed doctrine proclaimed as unquestionably true by a particular group

                Abusing “dogmatic” as merely a synonym for “opinionated” renders the word redundant, and should be avoided.

              • Fact Checker says:

                “There is a chance.”

                A chance of what, exactly?

                The thing is: people like Augustin Carstens and Yuval Harari are doing a favor to the tiny fraction of the population who are paying attention, by telling us exactly what’s going to happen, and how. At this point, it’s all on the table, if you know where to look, and people’s decisions have to be made based on that concrete eventuality, not on some vague, hopium-fueled, inchoate wish that some unspecified different, but somehow better, thing will magically happen.

                To remain in deliberate denial of the well-articulated, well-advanced, and fabulously-funded future the Great Resetters have in store for today’s children is disastrous and callous folly. No good will come of it. At some point, you have to face reality head-on, no matter how ugly. Only then will your choices be anything other than counterproductive.

                It’s fine and dandy that you’re currently “relatively comfortable” wearing a mask to work everyday, getting tested for imaginary cooties twice a week, and working for deranged members of the medico-fascist cult currently micromanaging everyone’s lives. It’s all appalling and intolerable to me, but if you’re fine with it, whatever. That’s not what matters. What matters is the cosmic sorrow that kids are going to suffer, from now to eternity, because of the “hope” and “optimism” that infects even the dissident counterculture. Little kids are being mercilessly tormented to the point of suicide on a mass scale, right now. They are prisoners of a mafia of absolute psychopaths who see them as slabs of tender flesh to be exploited and defiled at will. The torture that is their sad, unnecessary lives is only going to be ratcheted upward and upward, forever. They will live their entire lives in an ever-shrinking electro-mechanical labyrinth of inhuman coersive control measures, until their poor little bodies are turned inside-out, and their skins are draped over a grim, inhuman robotic infrastructure. This isn’t “opinion,” dogmatic or otherwise. This is the inevitable outcome of a world run by terrorists, who are completely unchecked and unrivalled in their power.

              • cu.h.j says:

                FC, working in the medical field has always been a mixed bag from the beginning. I stuck with it because of the money and that’s the primary reason I am still in it in addition to getting insight into the darker side of humanity. The emergency room is an interesting department to work in despite the bio-fascist tyranny going on. And I don’t care about wearing a mask in a hospital or spitting in a container twice a week to continue to earn a good paycheck. But I want to get out of western medicine in the next 5 years. So I have goals.

                A chance for what? I guess to have a parallel society where people can be relatively free.I remember when I was a kid in the 80s and I’d like to go back to a time like that, minimal technology, in person communication, reading real books as a norm. I know what the agenda is, rather that it is monstrous and revolting. When you say “unchecked” power that’s the key. It has gone on unchecked for far too long. The remnant needs to check these slimy psychopaths.

              • Steve Smith says:

                cu.h.j. Very sorry to hear about the loss of your family member. My deepest condolences.
                But good to see you back.

                “There is a chance”

                There are those who are certain that the earth is overdue for extinction level cosmic events that will derail the plans of the Great Resetters that fackchecker is so obsessed with.

                Just as much chance of a polar reversal or a Carrington type event as the future hell our resident doom peddler is so dogmatically certain of.

                The fact that fackchecker is so dogmatic doesn’t mean that he has a clue what is in store for humanity.

                Love conquers all. If one is capable of experiencing it.

              • cu.h.j says:


                Thank you for the condolences, I appreciate it. She lived a long and full life and it was her time. It’s weird getting older and closer to death and recognizing the finite nature of our existence in this life. It’s a bit unsettling actually, the unknown.

                I do believe in the uncertainty of the fate of humanity. As you say, another extinction event could be around the corner. I try to keep this in the back of my mind to keep me in touch with the moment at hand.

              • Fact Checker says:

                “Love” is now synonymous with “cosmic-level extinction event”?

                Okee-dokes. Lol.

              • Steve Smith says:

                “ It’s weird getting older and closer to death and recognizing the finite nature of our existence in this life. It’s a bit unsettling actually, the unknown.”

                I can attest to that.
                But as the certainty of my mortality has been impressed upon my consciousness recently by age and neglected health. My dread of the unknown has shrunk accordingly.

                There is too much to fear to pay attention to it all. Glyphosate in the food, micro plastics everywhere, chemicals in the rainwater, radiation frying our brains and causing cancer, Nuclear war, government tyranny, etc. etc.
                I could probably continue the list till James would have to clip the post for length.
                Fackchecker’s paranoia isn’t special except that it’s his and he’s really hung up on getting everyone onboard his vision of seeing humanity give up on itself. He loves and cares about children so much that he would deny them existence? Really?
                You can drive yourself to madness with the fear obsession. Or you can uplift yourself with hope and a positive attitude. At the very least you make your time here less dreadful. Unless you like that sort of thing.
                I don’t. Life is too short.

              • Duck says:


                “…Making arguments about ideas is a good idea….”

                Not always… if the person your you’re discussing ideas with has a goal of causing you harm any idea they bring to the table (even true ones) will be designed to hurt you.

                I’ll let Schopenhauer handle this one:

                “Animals are much more satisfied than we by mere existence; the plant is wholly satisfied, the human being according to the degree of his dullness.” (Additional Remarks on the Suffering of the World)

              • Steve Smith says:

                I’ll let Peterson handle this one.

                “voluntary confrontation with tragedy and malevolence … that’s a pathway that produces a quality of being that transcends the suffering and limits the malevolence … there are modes of being that justify existence.” Peterson maintains that a noble way of life, achieved through the adoption of responsibility, can make the chronic suffering worthwhile. This is made possible through what Peterson calls meaning. Meaning is a common theme throughout Peterson’s work“

              • Fact Checker says:

                Ah, yes, Jordan Peterson! I can’t say I understood that passage you quoted at all, but I sure understood when Sir Peterson plainly said:



                Of course, you have to imagine his retarded Kermit-the-Frog voice when saying it, but the message is loud and clear: “Take your fucking injection you filthy goy and die! It’s time to fucking die! We want yer fookin’ daughters! And yer sons! Their assholes! We’re gonna fookin’ rape yer fookin’ kids to death, so it’s time fer YOO ta take yer fookin’ injeciton and just bloody DIE already! DIE YOU GOY SCUM! DIE!

                For any unsuspecting readers:

                to try to shut down one statement made by someone by appealing to another statement by the same individual is a logical fallacy of association and a strawman.

                As such this does not constitute a reasonable argument.

                I will not even try to address the glaring emotional appeals, plenty examples of that during the past two years. Anyone who did not get wise enough to see through those probably never will.

                Pro-tips from somebody who carefully cites and quotes judicial decisions and other sources of authority for a living:

                1.) It helps when you quote sentences in full, rather than sentence fragments in media res. Even if you choose to elide certain clauses for the sake of concision, it won’t make any sense unless what you’ve left is syntactically sensible.

                2.) It helps if you actually quote the source you are purporting to quote, rather than the promotional copy from the inner dust jacket of his book, so that the reader isn’t mid-way through the mess, suddenly discovering that the ostensible writer (“Peterson,” in this case) is refering to himself in the third person and summarizing his entire philosophy in lowest-common-denominator language.


                Try much, much harder.

                Or, better yet, don’t try at all.

              • cu.h.j says:


                I think mkey was saying that just because Jordan Peterson may be pro “vaccine” or rather Covid gene therapy shot does not necessarily negate other points he has made.

                It’s an interesting thing to think about actually, if someone can have both negative and positive and even conflicting ideas at the same time and if the negative ideas taint the positive ones.

                I was surprised JP was pro Covid jab considering his arguments against “compelled speech” One might assume he would be against compelled injections.

                I do tend to feel differently about someone who has views that I am strongly against even if they share some opinions I have.

                Maybe JP hasn’t done the research on the jab, but as an academic, I think he should do so before promoting it.

              • cu.h.j says:

                Maybe Jordan Peterson has changed his mind about the jab. That post is old that you linked FC. Maybe he didn’t say people should be forced to take it, but I’m not sure.

                I must admit once I learned JP took the jab, I stopped listening to him for a while. I used to really like his lectures.

                Frankly, though, I’m not “offended”. To the contrary, when somebody expresses incredulity that another does what the other actually does do…well, the effect is entirely flattering.

                But I don’t need to be inadvertently flattered. It’s not interesting. Like I said before, I only have time and energy for engagement with ideas. Recently, there was another thread where candlelight, a great but seldom-posting Corbetteer, weighed in and had a genuine back-and-forth with Fact Checker about actual ideas and concepts, and it was delightful. Nosoapradio and alexb weighed in to disagree, but that was great too because they were disagreeing with ideas and arguments. They weren’t just disagreeing with Fact Checker because Fact Checker is Fact Checker and Fact-Checker-is-oh-so-negative-all-the-time. That type of genuine engagement is, unfortunately, preciously rare on this board, given that most threads are dominated by serial posts of just three particular users posting link after link to rando web-detritus, with no back-and-forth. Back-and-forth can only arise from disagreement, or, at least, from qualified agreement that creates some space for a contrast of ideas and a dialog. Serial posting of rando internet doings, or endless high-five compliments to Mr. Corbett (as deserved as those may be), don’t really make for a fruitful arena to hone ideas and arguments.

                Plato said, “Philosophy is the preparation for death,” and that’s where we all need to be. Petty trolling and flame-wars had there place on the internet, once upon a time, and yes, I trolled and flame-warred with the trolliest and flame-warringest of them, but that time has passed. It’s cheap and it’s trivial. If somebody finds another’s tone “opinionated” or “dogmatic,” that’s only more reason to address the substance of the arguments, because that’s the only way to demonstrate that the “dogmatism” is unjustified. But if all one can do in response is sling insult after feeble insult, that really does say something about the strength of his position.

              Nice to be back and talk to you again. You said regarding discussion of ideas:

              “Not always… if the person your you’re discussing ideas with has a goal of causing you harm any idea they bring to the table (even true ones) will be designed to hurt you.”

              Interesting perspective here. I think people can use ideas to harm others who may have psychological weaknesses that can be exploited. This is why having a healthy psyche is important.

                “Do you think discussion of ideas here will promote liberation from our predicament?”

                Liberation of a sort, but not in the material realm. But the realm of the mind is the last refuge, and yes I do think there’s a form of liberation to be found there.

                “Or is it building community that is more important?”

                I’m less interested in “community” than I am in ideas-as-such. “Community” is something that properly only exists in the material realm, with ideology being an adjunct phenomenon that ideally strengthens the real-world bonds that make up a genuine community of actual, 3-Dimensional humans.

                Unfortunately, the material realm is already lost entirely. All we have left is the phony phantom surrogate “community” of the disembodied Dissent-O-Sphere we receive through our computer screens. More power to anybody who has a genuine flesh-and-blood community, but anything on the computer is only an illusion that can disappear without a trace at any moment. The well-founded terror of being “doxxed” only shows that the material realm is hostile to people like you and me, and there is no place there to run.

                “Or is it just a pastime?”

                Sort of, but if you engage with ideas-as-such by way of online correspondence, then there’s real value in that. However, if the goal is to build a genuine community, the computer is all a misdirection and a wild goose chase.

                “I happen to think that spreading information will sway public opinion and lessen the assault on personal liberty.”

                I don’t think so. It’s just an insular echo-chamber at this point (and I’m perfectly content with that). Check out this great recent Truthstream video:
                The short of it is that all search results are now dictated and limited to a tiny, curated microverse of corporate/official sources. So if you’re not already inside the Dissent-O-Sphere, you’ll never be able to find your way in. There’s no entrance, at this point, for the “public”.

                Anyway, I sort of sense your questions were half-rhetorical. But I tend to just go ahead and answer rhetorical questions, on their own terms, in ways people don’t likeand don’t expect. It’s kind of like my thing…

      Economists Warn Of A Recession In Europe If Russia Halts Gas Supply

      ~~~ Germany’s industry leaders warn of the negative consequences of a gas import ban.
      ~~~ The EU’s refusal to pay directly in rubles tests Putin’s threat to cut off the gas supply, and buyers in Europe “would be running a very real risk of their supplies being cut.
      ~~~ If Russian gas supplies are immediately interrupted, Germany will lose as much as $237 billion in economic output both this year and next…

      … For Europe, the repercussions of a recession in its biggest economy cannot be understated—the snowball effect of surging energy prices would drag most other economies into recession.

      Germany depends on Russian gas for around half of its needs, with many industries using gas and about half of all households heating with gas. The Russian war in Ukraine exposed Germany’s—and Europe’s—vulnerable reliance on gas and other energy flows from Russia. Europe banned coal imports from Russia—as of August—but is still divided on a possible oil embargo, and hasn’t even started a serious discussion on a gas embargo yet.

      Germany’s industry has been warning for weeks that an immediate ban on Russian gas would have severe negative impacts on competitiveness, business, and economy….

      LNG (Liquid Natural Gas) from U.S. to Europe

      Just so people know…
      It takes years to plan and build an LNG facility, both to manufacture the LNG and to receive the LNG.
      If I’m not mistaken, the main ports in Europe which can accept LNG are in the UK, France and Spain. There are some in other places, but these are the main ones.

      Normal Natural Gas in the U.S. can be stored underground in salt domes, and depending upon the season there are pretty massive reserves.
      LNG is made by a “train” of step-down temperature lowering processes.
      LNG does not store well.
      When it arrives in Europe it needs to be de-liquefied which requires a special facility.
      Europe can only accept/process a limited quantity of LNG at a time.

      According to FXEmpire editor/trader James Hyerczyk: “The United States can turn about 13.2 bcfd of gas into LNG.” (bcfd = billion cubic feet per day)

      “Since the United States will not be able to produce more LNG anytime soon, the country worked with allies to divert more LNG exports to Europe [instead of Asia] to help European Union countries and others break their dependence on Russian gas.”
      “Russia, the world’s second biggest gas producer, provided about 30%-40% of Europe’s gas in 2021, totaling about 18.3 bcfd, according to Reuters.
      The EU wants to cut Russian gas imports by two-thirds by the end of 2022 and refill stockpiles to 80% of capacity by November 1, 2022 and 90% by November 1 each year from 2023.”

      Dave Becker says:
      “According to the EIA, U.S. LNG exports increase by six vessels this week from last week. Twenty-six LNG vessels with a combined LNG-carrying capacity of 97 Bcf departed the United States between April 14 and April 20.
      This report week had the highest number of export cargoes departing the United States since the week of February 3 to February 9, 2022.”

      During the past recent winters, there were times when European natural gas prices were 8 to 10 times higher than U.S. natural gas prices.

        …The vessel that arrived in Spain this month, however, is the first to do so since the U.S. lifted its ban on oil exports seven years ago.

        … This has made the issue sticky for the partners, with little chance of a quick or easy resolution of the problem. Yet, the U.S. will also be among those benefiting from an EU oil embargo by raising its oil exports to the EU.

        Meanwhile, U.S. crude oil and product exports hit an all-time high earlier this month, reaching 10.6 million bpd as buyers seek alternatives to Russian oil and derivatives. [END]

        Gasoline prices in the U.S. are still high. Remember, Biden recently announced the massive release of U.S. reserves (held in salt domes).
        Who benefits from this Ukraine-Russia war?
        It certainly ain’t the average Joe.

    Thank you for your work and this enlightening gift.

    “It is our task to educate those who do not yet realize that the daily news feed is in fact a magic show put on to entertain, distract and mislead them”
    Also in the past he brought up the wise Chinese saying: “You cant wake up someone who pretends to be asleep”. And that is what one faces when trying to educate many individuals. The response you would typically get is in the line of ” STOP! I don’t want you to wake me up”.

    RE: Everything You (N)Ever Wanted to Know About Hockey – Subscriber Exclusive #108

    I’m impressed with that Ausie, Broc West. He knew more about Hockey than I did.

    There was a fair amount of conversation about the Stanley Cup. Then later, Florida’s Tampa Bay Lightning (colloquially known as the Bolts) was mentioned.
    The Lightning have won three Stanley Cup championships: 2004, 2020, and 2021.
    As James points out, their opponent in the final was the Calgary Flames in 2004 for the Stanley Cup. The Lightning became the southernmost team ever to win the Stanley Cup.

    This was a timely video concerning the Stanley Cup.
    April 25
    US President Joe Biden has made another embarrassing gaffe while welcoming National Hockey League champions Tampa Bay Lightning to the White House.
    During the address, President Biden accidentally referred to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman as “Gary Batman.”
    President Biden did not seem to realise his error and did not stop to correct his mistake.
    Star Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Victor Hedman was seen chuckling at the unfortunate gaffe.

    It also seems that Biden did not know where to go.

    When it comes to the hypnotised hordes, and trying to wake them, I’m reminded of the proles as described in 1984.

    “…The Proles live in an almost carefree manner. Their ignorance seems to give them bliss despite their dire circumstances. They are too caught up in emotion desires to realize the horrible reality they live in, thus they never rise up against their oppressors because, “Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they they have rebelled they cannot become conscious.” The Party capitalizes on their ignorance by using the “Pornosec” to mass produce pornographic novels to sell to the Proles. This just keeps them even more distracted from their standard of living. The Proles in the end of the book never achieve liberation, and remain as they are”

    When Winston talks to the old man in the pub to try and get insight that comes from age, he realises that his head is full of rubbish – probably too much X F#ctor and other other such crap.

    Let’s hope more of our fellow proles break out of their trance.

    Best wishes,

    So, talking to “an English student” yesterday, I almost randomly picked up an article off the net in a flash speaking about the Italian social credit app mentioned in the recommended viewing section of this latest Corbett subscriber article.

    It’s not perfect but it’s been great today using it with other students, coupled with the Canadian Carrot rewards video and as a follow-up to the “How to Calculate your Individual ESG score” article.

    Some people really seem to be perceiving the trend now when juxtaposed with remarks about the LINKY Smart Meter system, UBI, CBDCs, ALICEM, the “Tous Anti-Covid” app, the pre-Covid EU Parliament Roadmap towards creating a vaccination card (most probably digital) for all EU citizens and whatever else I manage to casually toss into the limited class time.

    RE: Corbett’s article The Greatest Trick of All

    Ron Paul recently had an article: The Ukraine War is a Racket. This quote and excerpt is in-line with Corbett’s point…

    “War is a racket,” wrote US Maj. General Smedley Butler in 1935. He explained: “A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group knows what it is about. .”It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.”

    Gen. Butler’s observation describes the US/NATO response to the Ukraine war perfectly.

    The clip of the mentalist with the advertising execs reminds me of a Will Smith film, Focus, where the mark at the Super Bowl had been fed clues all weekend so they could predict what player number he would pick when he was being played.

    These people are so clever it almost makes me jealous. But, I know their intelligence is in the service of something evil, sinister, that I still loathe them for what they do.
