Episode 320 – Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next “Great” War

by | Sep 22, 2017 | Podcasts | 72 comments

In the early 20th century, the world’s dominant superpower looked warily on the rise of a competitor to its supremacy. The machinations of the British to contain the rise of Germany led inexorably to the First World War. Once again in the early 21st century, the world’s dominant superpower is looking warily on the rise of a competitor. Will the American Empire’s machinations to contain the rise of China lead to the Third World War? Or is the American/Chinese conflict another engineered conflict for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many? Join James Corbett as he presents “Echoes of World War I” to the Open Mind Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.

      …Your presentation yesterday on WW I @ the Open Mind Conference was for my person very mind expanding and with some typical señor James eye openers. It is always a pleasure for me when you voluntarily give us an insight of your knowledge and wisdom. When you señor James share the results of the interactions of your brain-cells with other senses of yours on what is happening in our world, this always leads for me to an euphoria in my brains and stimulates my common senses. When your person shares your thoughts with us, for my person it feels like having a seventh sense. Also how your answered the questions of the audience were brilliant with a typical señor James touch.. Yesterday my own brain cells were dancing Salsa and Bachata at once due to your excellent independent work señor James….

    China’s New World Order: Gold-backed oil benchmark on the way

    Episode 297 – China and the New World Order
    Military tensions, cyber espionage accusations, a brewing currency war; with every passing day, the headlines paint a convincing portrait of an emerging cold war between China and the West. But is this surface level reality the whole picture, or is there a deeper level to this conflict? Is China an opponent to the New World Order global governmental system or a witting collaborator with it? Join us in this in-depth edition of The Corbett Report…

  3. I make a conscious effort of never allowing myself to be accused of being a brown noser… however… that was the greatest lecture I have ever experienced.

  4. History does repeat itself. The graphs and charts are what gives Carrol Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope such an appealing draw to the mind numming facts.300 pages cover the multitude of treaties and compacts that if the general populace new of would have stopped any envolement in support for any war. I don’t know if Americans are so keen on King and country as the Queens subjects are but we are equally susceptible to other forms of propaganda tailored for our unique attatuides. Public schools are just gateways to millitary service and at the same time millitary service offer’s a gateway to education. However for most, the contract young people sign doesn’t turn out to be the contract delivered. James comes thur brilliantly in the end and can only wish it could penetrate the patriotic brainwashing that blinds most around Joklahoma to that history ,of mind numming facts, that would keep a normal, sane person from supporting another war.
    James will someday tell us ,in just as scholarly a fashion ,the role of Zionism,French Rothchilds-Chinese financial connections and the role Israelis have and will play in the machinations leading to
    WW-III. Until then we can fill the comment section with all the possible reasons why no mention at all of the real culprits exists. There is the 3 hundred pound gorilla in the room. I hope the listeners can appreciate the clever and articulate way you danced around the topic without steping on the gorrillas toes.
    Last of all James you could improve on your appearance. Pilato said something that has stuck with me ,sometime back, great people discuss ideas while weak people discuss the person, or something along that line. I deplored the troll comments about your appearance, no offense mate, I want to send you ,in the kindest of motivations, a new tie and sweater for Boxing day. It must have been cool in Denmark the evening of your presentation. Red may be your favorite color but friends don’t let friends go around with the barndoor open. Visual images count like bitcoin, like proper grammar or spelling. It may be of no matter or concern to you and that’s fine but you where on stage and visually it was fungswhaf mickyficky…

  5. Corbett shows some tea leaves at the 13:47 mark of Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next “Great” War .

    In my opinion the tea leaves highlight two extremely important “similarity aspects”
    Corbett discusses them starting around 29:48

    I believe that the “American Dominance Neocon-type Agenda” faction will not stand by silent when it comes to dominating “resource” and “trade”.

    On the flip side, we live in an era where Big Boys chase the buck and to heck with any national allegiance.

  6. My dear Texifino friend , you have made A very good observation however , the big boys are given access to the crumbs that the bigger boys( who are invisible to the rest of us) then trickle down crumbs to our level. The Rockefeller men don’t want to be seen, heard, or will they tolerate being made public. We can track their movements after the fact with graphs and news headlines but generally as you say “big boys chase the bucks and to heck with… ” everything except being invited to the Rockefeller mans table.
    An inlaw Im aware of, works for Winthopes Rockefeller foundation and works tireless (60hrs) week cataloging every speck of the High- resolution satellite pictures of his sectors that he manages . He must go and confirm vast mineral inventories, so he travels alot. He is so brainwashed there is no reaching him, he thinks it good sustainable ,healthy work for the planet ,mother nature needs help, like his, to survive. I ask him who shares this info? He said the men in the governments that are Rockefeller men with the same desire to protect the earth as his boss. Now tell me what happens to miners and peasants who claim the land you are in charge of from 7 miles up? This question made him so uncomfortable he couldn’t’t respond. Now Im not invited to Christmas anymore. So the point i would like to make is we are the Rockefeller mans biggest fear. Should we use the law to right the ship of state like they did to gain control? That would make us no better than themselves. The standing by crowd you mentioned need us, however the Rockefeller men really don’t need the big boys until we start acting in our own interests. What to do? I think Im going to not show up for the next Rockefeller man war if posible and keep spreading the word about who is doing the inventories and who gets access to those inventories. Bless T.C.U. THIS weekend.

    • You ole Sooner bottle washer,
      That is a very interesting “Rockefeller” tidbit. Thanks for sharing.
      I think you are square on.

  7. Panel Discussion – Open Mind Conference 2017

    (By the way, as James Corbett was preparing to go on with his talk, Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next “Great” War, there was a blonde guy playing the guitar. He was good. Nice music. I enjoyed it.)

  8. I found most interesting that tidbit about how unadorned males supporting the war effort by other means than dying in the trenches and having their eyeballs eaten by huge rats were issued badges as to prevent being marked or shamed as cowards.

    I knew of the white feather thing and that’s one of those bits of information that really sticks and one has to ponder over it for a while. The badge tidbit makes the entire deal that much more ridiculous.

    That kind of social pressure mush have been beyond comprehensible.

    First World War and Suffrage Blood and Shame

  9. Hi James,
    last year I read an interesting scenario of a conflict US/China.
    => “Twilight’s Last Gleaming” by John Michael Greer.
    Very good read, well thought through and researched.
    It starts with Africa as you also suggested.
    Check it out.

  10. Finally got around to watching this one. Worth the wait! As for the Battle of Copenhagen, I am one of those who had been completely ignorant of that one. And here I sit with my state approved MLA in history. Shame, shame, shame. Of course, having just gotten out of the military, I had made it a point to study as little war as possible. While I’m sure no one knows what this war will look like, I’m pretty sure it will be far worse than we can imagine. Of course, if it does happen, then the eradication of our species would be a good thing that would be well-deserved. We should know better by now. There is no excuse anymore. When you get down to the brass tacks of it all; it isn’t the fault of our so-called leaders. It’s our fault. We pay attention to them and do as they ask. It makes as much sense as obeying the crazy guy yelling at the demons in the street, but hey; we are so smart aren’t we?

  11. – Early November 2017 –
    (It should be noted that for about 2 years, oil prices have remained in a lower range, relatively stagnant. In recent weeks/months, oil prices have started to climb out of the stagnation.)

    Nov 4 2017 – Shocking Purge & Arrests by Prince Salman

    Nov 7 2017 – Saudi Arabia says Lebanon declared war

    My thoughts…
    Could this be an aspect to the “Next Great War”?
    We are seeing this joint faction of U.S., Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc. nations aggressively asserting control.

    …and going further, but with speculation…
    the Russia demonization & Trump
    Could Trump actually had been “a silent part” of the anti-Russia PsyOp Campaign? It really would be a beautifully designed PsyOp.
    You feed it to the Liberal media who take the bait. Trump, all along knows it is a ruse and doesn’t mind the heat. It helps to fulfill the Big Agenda.
    But regardless of whether or not Trump was a part of the anti-Russia PsyOp, probably doesn’t matter. The anti-Russia PsyOp helps to move the ball down the field.

    • More on Saudi Arabia – Nov 8 & 9
      (It should be noted that Trump is in east Asia this week.)

      The Saudi Purge: The Middle East Is On The Verge Of New War
      VIDEO(4 1/2 minutes) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgjBnpTLKgw
      A missile gets fired on the Saudi capital. A missile, which was allegedly built in Iran and smuggled to Yemen, just to be fired at Saudi Arabia.
      According to initial reports, two Saudi princes died back to back in 24 hours: one in an “accidental” helicopter crash, the other during a firefight that broke out while security forces were trying to arrest him. On November 7, Saudi Arabia’s information ministry spokesman said that “Prince Abdulaziz is alive and well”. However, the prince could not be independently reached for comment by the media.
      Other high-ranking members of the establishment and the royal family — the two tend to be one and the same in Saudi Arabia — get arrested on charges of corruption, with their bank accounts frozen.
      Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri unexpectedly resigns after he was summoned to Riyadh by his Saudi-backers.
      Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia accused Iran of conducting acts of “direct military aggression” and accused Lebanon of “declaring war” on Riyadh by allowing Hezbollah “aggression” against the kingdom.
      All this happened in a span of just a few days.
      With ever-growing security challenges and problems at the regional level, the crisis that took hold of Saudi Arabia does not seem to be slowing down.
      One contributing factor to the ongoing crisis is a major split in the Saudi royal family: the power struggle that resulted in the former crown prince being deposed and replaced with a new one, a move that shook things up quite a bit inside the country. The echo of this can be seen in the current “anti-corruption” persecution, enforced by the current Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

      • BACKGROUND on Saudi Arabia Royals

        In the early 20th century, Ibn Saud, the founder of Saudi Arabia, took wives from the many tribal factions and also formed an alliance with the Islamic ultra-conservative Sunni sect known as Wahhabism. This provided Ibn Saud with a more unified, stable control of the region. He fathered many children, including 45 sons, some of whom later took the throne as part of the Royal Family’s “House of Saud”.
        Here is the rub. Many of the high ranking government positions are given to members of the Royal Family. There are a lot of “power plays” in vying for these positions, because holding them helps to ensure power for a particular faction of the family tree. Another internal Saudi contender of the power struggle is the Wahhabism religious faction.
        (Note: The word “clan”, such as the “Sudairi clan”, is often used. “Clan” refers to each of the 22 or 24 wives of the founder of Saudi Arabia, Ibn Saud. Ibn Saud died in 1953. The Kings of Saudi Arabia have been a son from one of the different wives or “clans” of Ibn Saud.)

        • It’s always nice to hear the history of something, but on a more current note; has anyone heard of any reason why the Saudis looked like they were capitulating to the Russians while signing their weapons agreement with them? It wasn’t something the Saudis were happy about and it happened not long before all of this. The only thought I can come up with is that the American/Saudi alliance might not be as strong as we think. But, I am operating on almost zero knowledge.

      • They are ALL actors, Trump, Putin, Biden…they are all surrounded by Zionist psychopaths. BRICS +Israel is nothing more than a pivot by the chosen to a new host. They are moving to destroy the West from within.

        Behind EVERY move you find the Talmudic cabal, moving the chess pieces to destroy another group of people, most likely through starvation yet again.

        • Rexleonum

          Was it Paul Harvey who said; “Satan’s greatest achievement was to convince the whole world that he didn’t exist”? Or something to that effect.
          That cabal you speak of, for the most part, probably doesn’t even know what they are really a part of.
          There is a plan and it’s “end game” is the destruction of everything God ever created. All life in whatever form. Satan knows he cannot ever become the ultimate ruler of the world so he has no other road to take.
          And God has no intention of becoming that ruler either. He has a Kingdom that is not of this world. He’s gone to prepare it for His people and when it is ready He will return for those people and take them there.
          Almost no-one today believes that but that changes nothing except to allow Satan more freedom to do his dirty work.
          With “The Enlightenment”, Satan was “…loosed for a little season…” and has been gradually deceiving the world ever since. As he gains ground and power he goes faster and faster.
          I don’t know if God will allow him to actually begin a war like James is talking about. But the truth is that man will never solve the problems of this planet because he is not capable of doing it. But don’t try to tell him that. His ego will never accept that. Those many replies to your comment say a lot don’t they?
          Christ was not bragging when He said; “Without me ye can do nothing.” He was telling His people to realize who they are and who He is.

    U.S. Authorities Arrest Two On Major Energy Corruption Scheme
    …The most interesting part of the affair, however, is the alleged participation of CEFC, the rising star of the Chinese—and international—energy scene. CEFC is widely seen as a kind of mysterious company that has close ties to the Chinese government and plays a key part in President Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road international expansion plan, according to observers.

    The company recently invested US$9.1 billion in a stake in Rosneft and it has also spent heavily on oils storage capacity and transport infrastructure at home. While the company is private, it is said it is run like a state entity, reinforcing the suggestion that it has a strong Communist Party back to support it….

    Oil Price Drop Imminent If Moscow Says “No” To Extension
    As the November 30 meeting in Vienna of OPEC and its partners in the oil production cut deal nears, worry has returned …
    …We’re talking about Russia, the world’s top producer and exporter…
    …Reports emerged last week that Russia is considering a delay on the decision to extend the cut…
    …But there may be another reason for Moscow deciding to opt out of the extension. Lower oil prices could actually be more beneficial for the Russian economy. Macro-Advisory analyst Chris Weafer lists six ways in which lower oil prices would be better for Russia, and all of these make sense, counterintuitive as this line of argument might seem at first glance…

    • Congruous to the above Nov 20th article…
      Nov 23rd – $40 WTI Is Now More Realistic Than $60
      …The current rise in oil prices is more of a fear trade right now, driven by fear of what is going on in the Middle East, rather than a result of growing OPEC chatter or inventory reports…
      …“The oil premiums are very narrow going out to the future, which means that this is more of a fear trade in the front month,”…
      …“To me, this is more of just another farce of what OPEC is trying to do, and trying to push these prices higher,”…
      …OPEC and its non-OPEC partners in the production cut deal are scheduled to meet in Vienna on November 30 to discuss the extension of their pact. While just a month ago a nine-month extension to the end of 2018 was the base case of all analysts, now there are growing voices that OPEC may delay the decision to early next year….

    • Nov 28, 2017 –Forget OPEC, Putin Is Calling The Shots In Global Oil
      …One OPEC source that requested anonymity, told Bloomberg that Putin is “calling all the shots.” RBC Capital’s head of commodities Helima Croft called the Russian President “the world’s energy czar.” Indeed, Russia seems to have replaced Saudi Arabia as the market swinger, along with U.S. shale…

      …This is how Putin played Riyadh. It was clear that Russia’s participation in the cut deal would be crucial for prices to respond in the way OPEC wanted. To secure this response, OPEC’s leader cozied up to Moscow, with the first ever visit by a reigning Saudi monarch and a string of preliminary investment agreements, not to mention the purchase of the Russian S-400 missile system. All this despite the fact that Russia is a strong ally of Riyadh’s arch-enemy, Iran, and has shown no signs of willingness to reconsider its regional alliances…

      …First, the lower the oil prices, the less motivated U.S. shale producers would be to expand their own production. Like OPEC, Russia sees U.S. shale boomers as the main threat to its reign in the global oil world. Second, the Russian economy benefits from a weaker ruble, and lower oil prices mean a weaker ruble. Third, the Russian economy has shown strong resilience to the oil price crash. This resilience has surprised those unfamiliar with recent history, but it is one more reason for the world’s current number-one oil producer to have second thoughts about a nine-month extension of the oil production cuts.

      Russia is the producer everyone is watching ahead of the OPEC meeting. It may very well sign up for the nine-month extension but if it does, it will very likely do it on its own terms—and Saudi Arabia and the rest of OPEC might need to brace for these terms, whatever they may be, whether economic or geopolitical.

  14. “…Your mind is the battlefield….” – James Corbett

  15. The power of conditioning from a young age is strong. After years of having to pledge allegiance to the flag when you are a child, and the entire culture of America that is based around the flag and honoring the soldiers, it is hard to mentally and emotionally break away from. People feel that they are obligated to fight because it is honorable and noble. Just like people who have severe emotional trauma need intense therapy to overcome the emotional damage, so too do people need a form of therapy to overcome the perpetual trauma that mainstream America delivers. The therapy in this case is education of what’s actually going on in this world.

    New Pipeline Doubles Russian Oil Supply To China
    …Russia last year became China’s biggest oil supplier… …At the same time, Saudi imports fell by 7.8 percent in November, to 1.056 million bpd… … But Russia is not the only one eating Saudi Arabia’s market share in the world’s top importer: the U.S. has been exporting crude at unprecedented rates. Last year, the average U.S. oil shipments to China stood at 180,000 bpd for January to September alone.

  17. May 2019 – Trade War with China …and talk of war with Iran & Venezuela or whomever

    On May 19, James published an article “Reminder: Neocons ADMIT They Will Lie Us Into War” which entails some of the current events this late Spring 2019.

    For many months, Trump and China have been having trade talks.
    By May 2019, the trade talks have turned very aggressive.

    China Global Television Network (CGTN)(TWITTER) published this article on May23, 2019.
    “A brief history of tariffs and wars”

    “When goods do not cross frontiers, armies will.” This quote is often attributed to Frédéric Bastiat. The influential classical-liberal economist from 19th-century France was known for writing “the candle maker’s petition” to the French parliament. In the satirical letter, he imitated the tone of local lighting manufacturers griping about competition from a rival who overtook their market with rock bottom prices. The rival? The sun.

    It seems that Bastiat remains just as relevant over two centuries later while a saga between the world’s two economic titans unfolds.

    The protracted trade war that escalated earlier this month unnerved investors and wobbled global stocks. While countries involved are counting the cost, fears have been stoked that the full-scale trade battle might culminate in another world war. History certainly rhymes, especially when we look at what triggered the previous two world wars…

    … There’s no denying the situation may escalate if each side perceives the other’s actions to be filled with malice. This perception would lead to ever more serious retaliations that could prompt a full-scale war, as each side is fighting not only on the economic front, but on one that is tied to their identities in a dynamic multi-polar world.

    As such, trade is only the opening salvo for a conflict that is spilling into tech and other areas. It would be wise to resolve this trade crisis before we face the first great war of this century.

    Bloomberg – November 21, 2019
    Kissinger says US and China in ‘foothills of a Cold War’

    BEIJING (Nov 21): Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said the US and China were in the “foothills of a Cold War,” and warned that the conflict could be worse than World War I if left to run unconstrained.

    “That makes it, in my view, especially important that a period of relative tension be followed by an explicit effort to understand what the political causes are and a commitment by both sides to try to overcome those,” Kissinger told a session of the New Economy Forum. “It is far from being too late for that, because we are still in the foothills of a cold war.”

    Kissinger said China and the US were countries of a magnitude exceeding that of the Soviet Union and America, and that the world’s two largest economies, who are locked in a protracted trade war, “are bound to step on each other’s toes all over the world, in the sense of being conscious of the purposes of the other.”

    “So a discussion of our mutual purposes and an attempt to limit the impact of conflict seems to me essential,” he said. “If conflict is permitted to run unconstrained the outcome could be even worse than it was in Europe. World War 1 broke out because a relatively minor crisis could not be mastered.”

    Kissinger, 96, said he hoped trade negotiations would provide an opening to political discussions between the two countries.

    “Everybody knows that trade negotiations, which I hope will succeed and whose success I support, can only be a small beginning to a political discussion that I hope will take place,” he said.

    Kissinger spoke hours after Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan addressed the NEF (New Economic Forum), saying his country was committed to peace and would follow through on policy changes despite facing challenges at home and abroad.

    “Between war and peace, the Chinese people firmly choose peace. Humanity cherishes peace,” he said. “We should abandon the zero-sum thinking and cold war mentality.”

    The US and China are trying to assemble a partial trade agreement amid wider tensions ranging from human rights concerns over pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and the detention of Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region to strategic competition in the South China Sea. Kissinger said he thought a solution to the unrest in Hong Kong was possible, if not likely, and that he hoped it would be resolved via negotiation.

    The New Economy Forum is being organized by Bloomberg Media Group, a division of Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News. Other guests include Microsoft Corp founder Bill Gates and former US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson.

  22. Home Remedy Supply seems to be monopolizing the conversation here, is this the Corbett Report or the HRS Report.

    Honestly, make your point, but your style of comment, creates a blockade against diverse perspectives…maybe by happenstance, maybe on purpose.

    I often enjoy reading comments on Zero Hedge, those commenters know a lot more about money matters than I do, yet they are succinct and to the point, HRS comments are so esoteric and meandering it makes the comment section like slogging through a swamp of distractions, looking for an idea that is relevant to the discussion.

    Moderation is a thing.

    • Rexleonum,
      How dare you! I resemble that remark. All You need is the Texican Book of Translations.
      That would surely help take that burr out from under your saddle.
      What a narrow unrealistic POV you have of my Texican friend. What’s your hat size, 3 ? Moderation is not a thing in Texas. Have you ever been to Spain?
      How did you like the music. Is that too esoteric?

      ”Home Remedy Supply seems to be monopolizing the conversation here, is this the Corbett Report or the HRS Report.”

      Rexleonum , You are absolutely right! I hate that, too! I don’t like being the dominate player on the field. I don’t swim for the spotlight. That is not my motivation.

      Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next “Great” War was published September 22, 2017.
      Look at the timestamps of my comments.
      A fair number of my comments link Corbett Report works/interviews/articles which are related to Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next “Great” War. Often, I try to log relative information to a Thread.

      CONTEXT on ERA (Sept 2017)
      James Corbett produces a lot of stuff, and sometimes it is hard to keep up with James.
      Here are a few examples of that 2017 era…

      Episode 321 – Why Big Oil Conquered the World – 10/06/2017 came out a few weeks after Echoes of WWI: China, the US, and the Next “Great” War
      June 24 2017 – “Saudi King Names Son New Crown Prince, Upending Royal Succession Line” and “World On Precipice As Russia Threatens To Shoot Down U.S. Jets, U.S. Refuses To Back Down”
      April 29, 2017 – “William Pepper Reveals The Plot to Kill King”
      May 2017 – “What They’re Not Telling You About The Saudi Arms Deal” and “The Truth About Glass-Steagall”
      Sept 1, 2017 — “CIA Caught Arming Terrorists and Stealing Biometrics – New World Next Week”
      Sept 27, 2017 – “Why Do You Eat Bacon and Eggs?”

      Triggers and Community Interest
      [Corbett probably has more insight on this than I, especially with his emails.]

      Some topics really draw a crowd of commenters.
      ”Eat Ze Bugs or You’re Racist! #PropagandaWatch” had a diverse 90 comments.

      Some topics barely get a nibble of interest. Reminds me of types of fishing bait.
      April 5, 2022 – Interview 1717 – James Corbett on ESG and the Big Oil Conspiracy – ~~WWW corbettreport.com/yearzero-esg/
      When Corbett first broached the topic of ESG, there was very little community interest. I was tremendously interested, and I logged many related news articles on that Interview 1717.
      In 2024, now everyone is up in arms about the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) aspect of ESG.

      Open Threads
      In recent times, Corbett has made it a ritual to have a monthly Open Thread. This is fantastic, because it helps to relegate comments that are off-topic for a Corbett interview/episode by giving an appropriate platform for people to post their line of interest.

  23. Everything we are seeing is nothing more than theater, all the main players have LONG since been put under control of the Zionist NWO. Back during WW2 we saw America already under the control of the ZioCommunists, creating a Lend Lease Program that made CCCP the threat it became.

    Then we see the same thing play out with China, money stolen from America to build up China. Then Walmart (Bringing Chinese made crap into every corner of America, like injecting us with poison) benefits receiving billions from Wall Street to expand at the same time treasonous Bill Clinton sells US on MFN trading status with Communist China….all part of the pivot away from the States. The Zionists USED America to destroy their enemies, mainly the poor Germans and Japanese, now it is our turn.

    They are positioning China as the big bogymen, America is living through Weimar 2.0 and likely Trump will be our Hitler, the man to drive the American military right into a war it can’t win. America is being set up for a great fall, and the Zionists are behind it all. To be sure Zionism is a hyper-simplistic term, but still the most apt term that defines them in general, making Israel and its supremist ilk, the center of the NWO.

    • “…To be sure Zionism is a hyper-simplistic term…..”

      Yes, its OK to just say “jewish interests” because such have existed before zionism, and will continue to exist after Israel fails- (I wont say is ‘forgotten’ because there will be centuries of re-conning of history to show why it was just a peaceful nation that everyone hated for ‘no reason’)

      But, to be honest, I think that this picture is bigger then one group of people, no matter how insidious,

      • I don’t say Jewish interests precisely because it is bigger than just Jewish interests, actually, I think this plan works against “Jewish interests” in general. This is about world domination with the center being run out of Israel. I don’t think this works towards the interests of most Jews, but that does not mean those Jews will benefit in the long run, or that other Jews or those who simply call themselves Jews, are pulling the strings.

        This IS culminated in a particular group of religious fanatics called Chabad Lubavitch, they are powerful, well funded, have 5000 centers around the world and are close to Putin, Trump and are never far from the halls of power everywhere. They are the primary force behind the implementation of Noahide Laws (Laws that will likely rule us all in the future, if they get their way) around the world and here in the states.

        Yes, the move to a NWO is bigger than just Jewish, but it is OBVIOULY Jewish centric, as every major world event seems to have a Zionist somewhere in its planning. From the JFK assassination, 9/11 and the war on Iraq, to the rise of China/CCCP and the monopolization of global corporations, to the covid scam, the explosion of Fentanyl in America… you can’t escape the predominance of Zionist, aka Israeli (not necessarily Jewish) influence. I have a Jewish relative who left Israel in the 90’s because it was becoming too filled with hardline Russian Communists, so this IS more than Jewish, or at least the general Jewish population. Regardless, Israel does seem to be maneuvering to be the center of a NWO, a nation of priests”. I think that is why they are geocoding the Palestinians, they need that land to accommodate the Jews who will be fleeing the West when they decide to bring us down.

        Perhaps this is the Jewish people’s Jonestown Cult, but instead of killing themselves, they are going to kill all of us.

        • Gog and Magog, look it up, it is the basis of what is going on right now, the Abrahamic insanity coming through fruition, not because of some mythical God’s actions, but because THEY are manipulation the world to their prophetic ends.


          Who are Trump’s biggest supporters but Zionist Christians, Trump is being installed to be the next phase of America’s destruction. As always what they sell will be the exact opposite of what we get: Make America Great, I think not.

          I certainly hope I am wrong about this, but all signs are pointing to very difficult times ahead: Mass migration, ESG, Covid, war on food production, the removal of positive roles of white males in history, debt, war, the destruction of freedom of speech and promotion of nonsense “white supremacy”, and so much more are all originate from the same source, the same source that is becoming illegal to criticize.

          They want a world of their own, and who “they” truly are is anyone’s guess, but to be sure they are using religion as a means to their most monstrous ends.

          • “I certainly hope I am wrong about this”

            Relax Rex. Put your mind to ease. Because you are absolutely wrong about this.

            • the truth does not exist in a vacuum, what am I wrong about? If you want to be taken seriously, don’t act like a fool…

          • I’ll open up this can of worms and give everyone a chance to blow me off like so much dust.

            Has anyone here ever sat down and quietly, carefully, honestly and with an open mind read through The Protocols? I don’t mean a casual glance or a quick read. I mean an in depth study of all the specific points. It is a very disgusting read and if one seriously and honestly considers what it is saying and applies that to the world around them I don’t see how that person can just put the article down and act like it means nothing and is just some concoction of garbage produced by some nutcase.
            Ford’s opinion was that it is “The most perfect plan of world subversion ever put into print.” Care to argue that?
            Can anyone here show me even one point of this plan that has not been fully implemented today?
            It’s been labeled a forgery. A fake. A lie. yada yada yada.
            Funny thing is a forgery is nothing but an EXACT COPY of the ORIGINAL.
            It doesn’t matter who wrote it. Someone once said it was so complete that it couldn’t have been written by some group or clan but “by a Supermind”.
            The fact is that it has been written down and it is there to read and understand and compare to the world we are in and to consider if it has any relevance or not. Is it Jewish? Who cares? What matters is, Has it been put into effect?


            • Exactly Joebear,

              The protocols are rather prophetic, original or not.

              I used to believe in the idea that you study the past so you don’t repeat your mistakes, or at least understand them.

              But I see it quite differently now, now I study the present to understand the past. The past is so filled with lies and misdirection, it is near impossible to glean truth in history. But if we understand what is going on today and who is behind it, their modus operandi if you will, you can see those same patterns in the past, and gain insight into those historical events.

          • Rexleonum
            “…not because of some mythical God’s actions, but because THEY are manipulation the world to their prophetic ends. ….”

            Hahaha. My friend you really think HUMAN beings can plot and make the pieces fall into place over thousands of years? LOL, if they REALLY were that smart they would actually deserve to rule.

            No, there is a human level, but its much much bigger then that.

            The jews just happen to be a useful tool of revolution because they basically turned their back on God and (as a zionist once said) “became their own messiah”. THAT is the heart of satanism and from it grown all the other cancer tendrils,from gnosticism to feminism and communism and technocracy. Its all the same $h^t with a new label on the can.

            • I am under no delusion that in a comment section I can argue enough, or care to do so, to dissuade someone from their chosen opium.

              But I would posit this, knowing what we KNOW of the Hebrew Religion and its machinations throughout history, what is more likely, that what we are experiencing is a Jewish plot, like the thousands we already know of, OR, this is simply the master plan of a divine being, you only know about BECAUSE of the Jews…lol

              I would have to add, my first hint of trouble in my own Roman Catholic delusion, was how usury was given only to the Jews to perform, and how well that worked out for them…but I am sure the is just coincidence.

              • “But I would posit this, knowing what we KNOW of the Hebrew Religion and its machinations throughout history, what is more likely, that what we are experiencing is a Jewish plot, ..”


                “And our Lord said to me: Conspiracie is found in the men of Juda, and in the inhabitants of the men of Jerusalem. They are returned to the former iniquities of their fathers, which would not heare my words: and these therefore have gone after strange Gods, to serve them: the house of Israel, and the house of Juda hath made voide my covenant, which I made with their fathers. Jeremiah 11:9&10 Douay

              • RexLeonum
                “….. the Hebrew Religion and its machinations throughout history, what is more likely, that what we are experiencing is a Jewish plot……”

                Hahaha…. so jews create a religion that blames them for killing the son of God, says that they are the enemies of all human kind, persecutes them (mainly for things they do, but not always)….. and this is a master plan?????

                Dude, jews were well known as the enemies of Christians from Roman Times and its just in the last hundred or so years of jewish money infiltrating the seminaries that the goy have gotten dumb enough to thin jews are anything but religious enemies.

                “…I am under no delusion that in a comment section I can argue enough, or care to do so, to dissuade someone from their chosen opium…..”

                Then why are you saying anything? The only valid POINT of comments is to test the idea and find the correct one y having the errors pointed out….otherwise its just to hear ourselves type. OK, I like that kinda comment too sometimes, but its a waste of time TBH.

                Dont let the fact that you were in jew cucked church like the Roman Catholic one (see EM Jones on how jews subverted them) make you assume that is the historical norm.

                Even the Catholics used to treat jews like the subversive enemies they are up until after the war when what Academic Agent / Neema Parvini (on YT) calls the “Boomer Truth Regime” made them bend the knee.

    • Pity the “poor Germans and Japanese” still feeling the effects of our Imperialism. Trump will keep the pple out of the streets. (The HildeBeast could not have shut down USA.) Meanwhile, dust off the WW1 propaganda for WW3.

      All the institutions are bolshevik. GreenPeace to GirlScout. Porno to NWO bible versions. A few yrs ago looked up who was in charge of Buddhism (NYC). Goldberg, summat stein/stien. 2% of all Buddhist on the planet, but retain all big time leadership.

      Gog and Magog are a hoot! You would think Zionist Christians would skool their Zionist pals about a few biblical facts, but they do not study. If they have a bible at all it is NWO & not a King James. Otherwise, they would not be Zionists. When they hear their squishy pastor’s Gog & Magog dog whistle they go ballistic. Wish they would skool Zionists frauds about the scam of the “Temple Mount,” but alas, no. So we got that goin’ for us…

      Looked at Noahide Laws 10yrs ago, but thot was a nothing burger. Around same time, habad Lubavitch seem foamy at the mouth enuff (& will probably gain momentum w/ perceived persecution. Recall 1 reprobate murderer who liked hunting down perceived nazis.)

      40yrs ago, used to argue w/ pple that US was a commy country. Read the 10 Planks! We’re on #8 & i can make a case for we’ve been on 9 for a while w/ the taxes.

      Also around that time read some (skim thru) of the Protocols of Zion. Very sickening. And also very true from what i can recall. About like, “Report From Iron Mountain.” Everything on the list has been done or waiting in the wings. Responses? Oh, that’s a forgery!

      Maybe is time to revisit & ‘splain for a new audience. Our boomer generation is done. Stoopid & willing to remain. Maybe these savvy kids will sit up & take notice when U can show the video of general what’s-his-face saying we are gonna carve up 7 mid-east countries… ..hmmm…or the 1 i got on my channel how politics are faked & staged: M.Obama & M.Trump give same speech… How voter machines can be hacked in 2min. Report Fr Iron Mtn….80pgs.., son.

      Appreciate you fellas bringing up the valid points. Many endeavours of study.

      I have a dream: Make America Hate Again: Hate pedos, hate war, hate injustice,…

      • Well said Miss King,

        So true about the institutions, like everything, we make it, they come in and buy it, then weaponize it against us.

        What does it say about a people who allow a small minority who basically hate us, to make and tell our stories, control our money, our history, our entertainment, our education… Pick a industry or area of study, entertainment for example, how it is 100% controlled: licensing, managers, distribution, copy rights…every aspect of it predatory to the artist, controlling what they make and how successful they are, and if they don’t perform as directed, they use their media to destroys them. I don’t know about Michael Jackson, but I do know Hollywood is the one group that I would NOT trust to point out pedophilia, but I do know Jackson stepped out of line, he started going off script, calling them out…and idiot America went right along, yet that vilification of pedophilia stopped at Jackson, never going any further into the vile rapacious satanic cesspool that is Hollywood and the entertainment industry in general.

        Basically, America is the consequence of a people living in an Abrahamic bubble, and being perfectly happy to do so. And for so long others around the world have paid for our WILLFULL ignorance, but that bill is coming due. Soon enough, most sadly, though perhaps justly, we will all be Palestinians.

        • Recall when MJ was normal w/ chickenbutt nose? Got turned out, IMHO. He was a useful distraction tho.

          Tried to check out chabad. Really need a guy w/ a hidden mike. What i saw was same pabulum. Impress & distract w/ a few hawk-phlems & ‘splain is just a soft form of psycho-anal-ist ish. Undertones of not to be confused w/ kabala or pre-vert freud stuff…. Gave me a bad spine.

          What i found more interesting down that wee rabbit holey was the same 3 black “Hebrew Israelite” street preachers fr 10yrs ago, sans blow horn. Oh, they were still in the street, but trolling habad hangout in Crown Heights, NYC, USA. No less than 2 full sized ambulances, cop rigs: 1 tiny tri-cycle of a car, 2 mid-size sedans, 1 semi-trailer converted for cop shop (look temp, but is red-neck perm). Meanwhile, broads are getting punched in the face elsewhere.

          Nobody was fessing up about the Noahide stuff either. More hawk-phlems or i asked my rabbi pal & he said don’t be afraid…. Out of 5 interviews i got 5 diff answers.

          Checked out your Jesus radio guy-the one that needs a haircut & is starting out under false pretenses. I would have liked to skooled him today, but alas ran out of time. Says he is writing a book & would like to see him get off on the good foot. Weird platform for me. His video was 2.5g’s too. Very strange. Need time to figure out same.

          Any links you can share would be appreciated. I tried CODOH a few months ago, but got lost bc they had changed the site so much. Was trying to find a certain author who had published there and had referenced another article….Oi! Today the page kept turning into black history month or some ish. ..hmmm….

        • @Mr. Rexleonum, also note around that same time MJ was calling out the ImperialFed on the tax situation. Dittos for little Miss Lefty Lopez. She died not long after calling out same plus studio system. What a shame!

          Recall also in Carter yrs, factories closing up bc they could no longer meet payroll taxes. Must be a guestimate paid in advance & you best not be short… I scoff that China stole our jobs! What a crock!

  24. I’m slowly reading “silk roads” right now and it really does strike me that WW1 was just as much about whacking Russia as it was Germany (as it shown regarding Gallipoli, in “Prolonging the agony’ by MacGregor and Docherty ) and having influence in Persia/Iran.

    I guess its always the same old same old, perhaps Geography really is destiny? But the west is too rotted out to fight China (or anyone else) in a real war where you take and hold territory.

  25. “La fleur au fusil”

    Paris, August 1914. Pictures like this look like they were part of a social engineering campaign too.

    Tehran, last night: https://twitter.com/i/status/1779297101396017289

    “They left, a flower tied at the barrel of their rifles, and away they went to fulfill their duty…”

    • The last link might seem a bit confusing but if I posted it, it’s because my father gave me this kind of anti-war material when I was a kid. He would be considered a conspiracy theorist nowadays and he educated me about political manipulations from a very young age. Although as a child you’re particularly permeable to propaganda, it’s also I believe the right time to show you some of its mechanisms. If many people don’t want to acknowledge the reality of the situation, it’s partly because they cannot overcome the psychological barriers that have been raised within them in their formative years.

      I recently tried to explain this under a WEF cartoon made for kids, in response to some of the comments that expressed a healthy degree of disgust. I tried to convince their authors that this kind of stuff provides a great illustration for kids, in order to show them why it’s designed to trick them.

      So since “your mind is the battlefield”, you can teach about the mechanisms of propaganda from a very early age and even make it like a game. I would just add, only make sure it doesn’t give them too dark a vision of the world…

    • Great pic & AbFab cartoon! Twitter wants me signing in so maybe laters!

  26. The ‘Engineering’ of a potential WW3 appears to most definitely on the books.
    This time the still living british empire and the banksters (lower casing because they don’t deserve ‘Upper Casing’) are getting the U.S.A to do their dirty work.

  27. Great video as always from James Corbett, though I would like to add a contextual aspect of a particular segment of his informative presentation, that being in regards to Africa and how it is being used/exploited for its resources.

    You point out how America goes in with military and might, while China goes in thoughtful and considerate (See how China treated its citizens during covid for some of that thoughtfulness).

    This is all just part of the plan to destroy America, just like America’s endless sanctions, those sanctions also hurt Americans, and American businesses, which is the true target. If you look at who runs our trade department, our State Department and the Neo-Cons that run Washington, you will find the all too familiar “dual-citizenship” traitors, undermining Americans at every turn, while propping up their benefactors. It is no secrete that US trade policy prioritizes Israeli trade over that of the American citizen/business when the US government is making trade deals…

    So, it is not surprise to see HOW American interacts with these African nations heavily influenced by our “closest ally in the Middle East”, again to undermine America, while simultaneously having their puppet China go in with a more productive and reasonable approach. China becoming the world’s manufacturer did not happen organically, it was part of the Zionist NWO plan, just as Kissinger…China was part of the pivot away from America.

    This is all part of the pivot to the Zionist NWO created BRICS+Israel. Israel will be at the choke point for that One Belt One Road project. Covid demonstrated beyond doubt, we are already living in a NWO, and just look who runs Big Pharma, and all the nodes of power around the world, to clearly see who is orchestrating this, the CDC in particular was most illuminating.

    A fact that is being repeated with another hard-core covid scammer: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/biden-picks-north-carolinas-former-health-chief-mandy-cohen-run-cdc-rcna89750


    Interesting article for those who simply can’t comprehend how what we are experiencing is simply the fruition of a long term Zionist plan for world control.

    • Rexleonum

      I would only contest one word of your final sentence. Change the word control to destruction.

      When one becomes obsessed with killing it is an addiction. Like drugs, accumulation of wealth etc.
      that one does not finally get enough and retire. “Ah, I’ve finally killed enough and so now I’ll just
      retire and do something else.” Or; “Ah, I’ve finally snorted enough and now I’m satisfied and will
      just kick back and relax.”

      Satan’s obsession is with murder. He lies in order that he can murder more. It doesn’t matter who
      he murders because he loves no one. He will not stop his killing because that’s his only desire besides
      lying. If not stopped, he would kill every human being on the planet and then probably murder himself.

      IF the Zionist plan is for world control, and they were to achieve that goal, then what? Since they are
      nothing but parasites, there would finally come a time when everything was consumed and they would
      all starve. Since they produce nothing, they would eventually us up everything that they need to survive.
