The specter of Operation Choke Point 2.0 has just been raised in a recent House Financial Services Committee meeting. But what was Operation Choke Point 1.0? And why should we be concerned about this latest attempt to debank “disfavoured individuals,” anyway? Find out all the details in this week’s edition of The Corbett Report podcast.

    • You dont happen to sell heirloom seeds do ya?

      I would really rather buy from a fellow corbetteer than a shop.

      Its limited to what we can grow here in Norway but nature is good at making things work!

      • Hi Helanda

        I do not have an official business focused on selling heirloom seeds but I do have an abundance of rare heirloom seed varieties in my collection and I like to share them with good people when I am able. In the interest in helping them find good homes all over I recently came up with a thing where when people sign up for a paid subscription to my substack newsletter they are offered the option of me sending them some heirloom seeds (it covers the shipping fees most of the time).

        If I was not throwing all my fiat currency at getting my book printed right now I would offer to send you some as a gift but I have done that for a few hundred people in the last year and I just cannot afford to keep that up for the time being.

        I also gathered a list of good heirloom seed companies (based in Canada and the U.S.) at the end of this article https://gavinmounsey.substack.com/p/seed-saving-to-save-the-future (though I am not sure which ones can ship to Norway).

        I agree regarding how nature helps things to work, it is one of the things I love about seed saving (being able to co-create with nature by saving select seeds and helping increase characteristics like cold hardiness, drought tolerance, flavor and color over the years). 🙂

        Thanks for the comment.

        • Hi Gavin

          I must just say that you have some amazing corn and tomatoes!

          I could sign up for an annual? 43$?:)

          How much are substack taking? Just curious. If they take a good percentage I could wire it over.

          I have sourced alot locally, like potatoes, carrots, salat and different onions, cabbage and some bell peppers.

          So hopefully I will throw less fiat currency at the elite ( the fuckers ) going forward.

          I am also so lucky that I can buy meat directly from farmers.
          In the process of my first preservation round ever.
          Hopefully the lamb is going to turn out good. Next up, a pig 🙂

          Hopefully I meet someone who would trade meat for cannabis.

          • @helanda

            For the most part, I cannot take the credit for the amazing characteristics of the corn and tomatoes we grow in our garden. The beautiful colors, high nutrient density, vibrant flavors and resilience of the crops themselves is the result of the hard work and close observation of many generations of seed savers from cultures far and wide that worked with their hands, minds and their hearts to make those heirloom varieties what they are. I have intentionally created a couple different varieties via cross pollinating different varieties of tomatoes, peppers, goji berries and apples but most of my collection is the result of countless generations of work that came before me. I just do my best to honor their hard work and continue to preserve their legacy.

            Sure! If you sign up for the annual that should cover shipping costs for the bigger seeds like beans and corn if you like. I have a certain selection of seeds I have been sending out to people who sign up for the annual subscription option but I can customize your heirloom seed package if you have preferences as to what you would like. Just let me know.

            I am not sure how much substack takes as a percentage. Maybe 8-10%-ish? (If I was to guess). I appreciate the offer to do a direct wire but I am generally computer illiterate and super strapped for time this time of year (working long hours at my day job doing landscape design and installation) so substack would be better for me at this point in time.

            Also, if you want you can just unsubscribe after doing the initial annual subscription (so that you do not forget about having subscribed and then get charged again next year, as my posts on substack may be sporadic at the times of year when I am working full time at my day job, so I do not know if one would consider the subscription to be a valuable investment aside from the initial heirloom seed bonus gift offer).

            I admire your intent to throw less money at the parasitic banksters and their minions (via cultivating your own food and sourcing it out locally).

            That is great about your local meat source, we know a local farmer that raises organic chickens and cows and she likes to barter with me for seeds, produce, herbs and work rendered (landscaping) so it is nice to know we have that option if we need to go that route.

            Meat for cannabis! I love it, I have heirloom seeds for that too (though if I was gonna send them internationally I would typically do it in a separate envelope from the other heirloom veggie/herb seeds without a return address etc for obvious reasons). What are the laws like regarding Cannabis in Norway?

            Thanks for the nice comment 🙂

            • Hi Gavin,

              sounds good. I will subscribe on monday:)
              And just connect with me when i do and we can customize the seed package.

              Yeah, it’s illegal in Norway. But I have nullified the whole ordeal ages ago 😛
              I did not sign anything 😛
              Just paid a bunch of tickets:P

              • @helanda

                Thanks for subscribing! 🙂

                I will send you an email via my protonmail account so we can stay in touch regarding the seeds.

                Ahh okay, it is “illegal” (whatever that means, as I do not think some random guys agreeing on what plants are allowed and not allowed to be grown without my agreement means anything to me, so I grew what ever plants I wanted to here in Canada before it was declared “legal” by the multi-generational organized thugs aka “government” too). I am glad you nullified that silly “law” where you are as well.

                Here in southern Ontario they have a rule in our municipality against having food gardens in our front yard (they mandate monocultures of useless imported grass) I also nullified that. 😉

    • Hey Gavin, I hope that you’re doing well.

      I just watched this video https://rumble.com/v2fmc7q-the-amazing-healing-powers-of-celandine-true-pathfinder.html
      about a herb called greater celandine.
      I don’t remember you ever mentioning it but I figured that you must know about it.

      Do you think that it would grow here in central Florida? And do you have seeds?
      Like helanda, I would rather buy seeds from you than some company that I don’t know anything about.


      • Hey Steve

        I am well thanks. Starting to build the calluses back I had neglected over the winter and getting the blood moving planting trees and mulching yards all day, feels good.

        How about you? Did those Amaranth seeds you started a while back pull through?

        I have not heard of that herb before but I am glad you introduced me to it as I think I may have seen some growing around here before.

        If I see it again i`ll try to save some seeds for ya 🙂 (though that would likely not be until fall if I am correct in remembering that flower/leaf grows around here and I am able to properly identify it and save seed).

        I am not sure if it would grow in Florida but some say it can grow in Zones 5 to 8 (given proper care) so it seems like it should be able to do well there (or are you zone 9?).

        Strictly Medicinal Seeds is a company I trust and they appear to have some greater celandine seeds if you want to get them sooner than later.


        I`ll check out the video when I have time, thanks for the comment 🙂

        • “Did those Amaranth seeds you started a while back pull through?”

          Yes, they aren’t nearly as impressive as the photos made them look but the largest one is now about chest high and is blooming.
          Pictures always lie I suppose. 🙂

          I’ll check out the seed company. Thanks.

  1. In the 1970s my mum was in a babysitting circle, and they used beads to keep account of how much babysitting each one had done.

    Just because fiat surrounds itself with gatekeepers doesn’t mean crypto cannot be used as a means of exchange.

    • minnie,
      You make a good point. So long as one stays in the De-centralized Crypto World and does not attempt to convert their funds into Fed Notes or some other fiat currency backed by nothing other than a corrupt government’s creed, they will not be tracked. It is only when one uses the Banksters Money that they make a claim over you.
      When dealing locally, I can trade favors all day and get by without a tally, however when it comes to paying Real estate Taxes for the roof over my head, even the local Government wants Fed Notes. I see where Gold and Silver are becoming acceptable means of payment for Taxes in some States. This opens the door for De-centralized Crypto to Gold/silver Exchanges that would completely work around the Bankster’s Money. Once the Bankster’s Money is no longer “Legal Tender” their reign is done.

      • Yes, and local government is increasingly on shaky ground, trying to force us to pay for things we don’t want, like 15-min cities and spy cameras – also massive interest rates to banks for schemes that were passed as people took to the streets to protest them.

    • I remember being babysat in the 70s in UK with the same system except the beads extended to other goods and services in the community beyond babysitting. Man the 70s was a good time!
      And we all knew that what Maggie did through the 80s had fucked us all, but what could we do in the face of the literal “Big Bang’ as it was known even then? How did all that hippie rebellion stuff switch like a light into greed is good and we all love Big B?

    THEY GOT YOU GOOD (song)

  3. There were some interesting developments in my area during these past few days.

    So, April’s fools day. The local news rag trumped up fake news about how one of the larger parking lots in the city is no longer going to be free. They staged a video showing people’s cars being picked up and being impounded. They offered some fake press releases with the local “officials” and event went as far to claim that “no, this is not an April’s fool prank”.

    People, obviously, fell for it, hook, line and sinker. The parking lot was empty for a few days, and then they released another editorial article to explain how it was all just a joke, don’t hold it against us, it was all in good fun, it doesn’t matter that they story didn’t make any sense but we made you believe it still, because you are stupid and, after all they lies we pushed your way, you still trust us.

    And then, in the news today, the stasi… erm, department of the interior proposed amendments to the “public peace and order law” that would fine people for “fake news” with sums up to 4000€. Which is basically 4x as large as the supposed average income on the national level.

    How more obvious can it get?

    • What!?
      I would be enraged at a fake news article like that, especially if I usually parked there.

      …Of course, we see that kind of stuff daily in the media.

      • People did get upset over it, yes. I’ll have to probe my entourage to see if anyone has started getting fed up of this shit.

        I will, of course, curb my enthusiasm.

  4. Forty years ago I used to think that I could always escape the USA to a less enslaved place. Now, I realize the fight is everywhere, everyday. And it’s hard to tell who is winning with a controlled MSM. Got Gold?Silver?

    • The ‘fight’ is everywhere/everyday indeed. Thankfully the opportunities to invest in the living economy of the Earth are also omnipresent and the returns on that investment are universally recognized as valuable.

      Who is winning?

      Well, one could begin to answer that question by asking another:

      Who is capable of thriving, nurturing their health, resilience, creativity, living joyfully and with purpose regardless of the current status of centralized infrastructures, governments/economies and regardless of what ever life throws their way?


      These are worth more to me than all the jewels, gems, silver and gold on Earth!


      I would also argue that they are just as (if not more) beautiful visually. Also, you cannot eat gold, silver, diamonds, sapphires or rubies… nor can you plant them in the ground and increase their value 100 fold in a single season, while also building precious soil in the process and simultaneously increasing your health/emergency preparedness.

  5. Don’t wait for them to debank you. Debank yourself today!

    • thats it, preempt the mofo’s, they hate being second off the blocks. When Ive received largish sums at the end of a build job (less than 10k), Ive taken it as cash,, they hate it, they ask me why? and what will I do with it,,? I tell them theyre asking me that because they were told to,, its rude, they blush, they back off quick smart.

  6. Whats the difference (for the consumer) between cbdc’s & direct debit cards?

    Journalists keep chanting “they’ll turn your money off, if we allow currency to go completely digital”. Isnt this already the case?

    • Debit cards are just one of many ways to access your commercial bank account. You can take your debit card to an atm and withdraw your money in the form of bank notes. With cbdcs there would be no associated bank notes. Its all digital and its not connected to any commercial bank (who presumably wouldn’t care what protest you attend ext), thereby making it way more centralized and at risk of being ‘turned off’. Of course they still can push on commercial banks today and ‘turn off’ your money but its not easy or straightforward process nor is it 100% effective since bank notes can still be used.

  7. I would had flunked the pop quiz.

    Fortunately, as James reviewed the information it all came back to me.
    I remember the newsletter and especially the Suntrust story.

    A couple points I want to mention…

    James Corbett does a great job of holding our hand and guiding us through the data, even if it means him reading out-loud for us the important paragraphs in the script.
    It is a good way to teach others.
    Reviewing information really helps.

    I also want to note that mental memory mechanism: “story”
    That Suntrust story stuck.
    It remained in the memory nodes with mental imagery.

  8. I have noted in the past couple of days that I have been effectively removed from shopping online (not Zon which I do not use) as even Mercadolibre in Mexico demands 2-factor authentication suddenly, after years of just email.
    They want Phone Numbers– enough that they’re willing to lose custom to get them – a concerted push into the digital prison?

  9. This Episode on Operation Choke Point is very timely in that (after noting that James no longer takes Paypal) I submitted my previously properly functioning MasterCard (3 times), only to be informed of “Insufficient Funds”. It seems strange because only yesterday I used the same Card to donate to CHD, located here in the States and it worked fine.
    As I just checked my Bank Account to see that it is nowhere near the limit, I noted that the $50.00 to CobertReport was in fact Declined 10 times. That also strikes me as odd.
    I don’t know how James Palato can continue to get money to Japan, but you might want to keep that under your hat, eh!

  10. I found a reply from CorbettReport in my in-box where I was able to find a link and Donate $50.00 by way of Paypal. So, it looks like MasterCard is worse than PayPal relative to my international transactions.
