  1. I thought I would listen to your first report for a change. Funny (actually quite sad) how nothing has really changed on that matter since. We are still at that same point. Eventhough the evidence lays open since years, not one investigation has been pulled through. Sure, A&E are close (as always) in presenting more facts to the destruction of WTC7 and Saleh is not giving up in sueing Bush, but nothing has really happened. How frustrating. 15 years later (and almost 10 for this podcast) the false flag operations continue as do the wars.

    OT: Could you credit the music on this episode? Who is that at the end?

  2. Dear James,

    About a week ago i decided to begin listening to your podcasts from the very beginning.

    Funnily enough a day or two after i listened to this one this movie appeared… i wonder what’d be your take on it:

    Come from away


    • @source

      How many episodes have you gotten through so far? 🙂


      PS – I received the email regarding the update on the heirloom seeds I sent to your community and will respond asap, please tell who ever is tending to the gardens thank you so much for putting in the care to give those seeds a loving home.

      • Hey Gavinn,

        So nice to meet you.

        My name is Grace… you got a smile out of me with this message. And yes, i will make sure Mirabai knows how happy you are your seeds got a home with us. We are truly thankful to you for that too.

        I think i listened to a few more episodes from the beginning. It gave me a feeling of James trajectory and made me feel more intimate to his work. Then i went back to listening to his current material on a regular basis and also to fact check almost any subject i find around by looking for context in his search. The Corbett Report is truly like the now days history enciclopedia for me…

        Did you check the link i sent him here back then btw?

        Thank you for this truly beautiful moment

        • @source

          Hello Grace 🙂 nice to ‘meet’ you too!

          I am glad the message brought joy to your day.

          I appreciate you passing along the message for me.

          Ahh okay I have done a similar pattern of viewing the material here.

          Can you imagine if someone actually binge listened/watched/read all the material in the archives, I think it would take years! I wonder how many total hours of recorded material are on here, thousands of hours no doubt.

          I will watch the film you linked above and let you know what I think.

          I am vaguely familiar with the story of how Newfoundlanders got involved with helping all the stranded Americans after the false flag event in New York (2001) as when my wife and I visited Newfoundland a few years ago I got to talking to a small book store owner who shared his experiences giving people a place to sleep in his home when they were stuck.

          I think I will enjoy re-visiting the implications of those events in Newfoundland with the fresh eyes I have today and all I have learned in the years since I last thought about it.

          Thanks for sharing the link and thank you for making the choice to live with devotion to and respect for land you call home.
