Episode 381 – Who Will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?

by | Jun 19, 2020 | Podcasts | 138 comments

We’ve all come across online fact checkers that purport to warn us away from independent media sites under the guise of protecting us from fake news. But who is behind these fact check sites? How do they operate? And if these ham-fisted attempts at soft censorship aren’t the solution to online misinformation, what is? Join James for this week’s important edition of The Corbett Report podcast, where we explore the murky world of information gatekeeping and ask “Who will fact check the fact checkers?”

  1. James Corbett’s Friday 6/19/2020 Episode 381 – Who Will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?
    is stellar – all across the boards!

    The humor and wit really grabbed me.
    And there were all these little phrases, like “2nd hand cringe” and “Say it with me…”.

    But, by golly, when Broc West came on the screen, my body went epileptic. I couldn’t control myself. I lost it. It was great!!!
    Finally, after my laughter calmed, I had to rewind, so I could listen and watch through my watery blurred eyes.

    I still chuckle when I recall those first moments when Broc appeared.

    Anyway, thanks fellas for making this important episode. It covers a lot of ground.

    • Agreed. Great humor and great delivery from both James and Broc (aka: Talking Head – Worldwide Director of Prestigious Sounding Front Organization ?).
      As Internet memes and James’ own 9/11: A Conspiracy Theory have demonstrated (and his Laughing At Tyrants video has thoroughly pointed out), humor can be a really effective way of getting truth to people.
      Come to think of it, James now has quite a collection of really well done clever humorous segments and he always nails the sarcasm.

      • Personally, I would love to see a “short”.
        A couple minutes video which includes this Corbett and Broc fun.
        QUEUED (a minute or two)

        A lot of folks won’t watch a long video.
        But places like Twitter will likely pick up that short and play it.
        It becomes promotion to watch “Who is Bill Gates”.

        By email, it is very easy to share a two minute teaser with friends.

    • Thanks Anarchon! Looks like a very good source!

      • Hmmm…Stop think look.com is flat earth….

        • MagicBullet,
          Your name links to a real hidden classic.

          • For those who have never seen this, it is worth watching.
            I first saw it today.

            by James Corbett (7 minutes)
            Welcome to The Corbett Report! & Comment Rules

            (Hat tip to MagicBullet)

  2. People used to understand manipulation better, did they not? “Yellow Journalism,” I believe it was called. I’m guessing this “new” non-understanding of “un-truths” and/or “alternative facts” in our “post-truth” era is due to the indoctrination system and abundance of info-overload?

    • No. Reefer Madness is a great example of how easy it was/is to fool people.

  3. James , Adrienne Arsenault and the CBC and good examples of why the CBC News needs to be shut down and eliminated. It is 100 % pure Propaganda with as you say a ” cringe factor” that makes you feel ill.

    • Someone should forward this CBC investigative piece to Ms. Arsenault, so she can take the appropriate actions by cancelling her CBC feed, quitting her job, and alerting the authorities.

      “Anthrax War CBC The Passionate Eye FULL! Dr. David Kelly / Biological warfare”

      Funny how this doc is bookended by Prof. Francis Boyle warning against the dangers of the emerging bio-weapon arms race. Especially because Boyle was blacklisted by group-think journalism after assertions like these, despite the fact that he drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, approved unanimously by Congress and signed into law by Poppy Bush.

      FWIW, I sincerely wish that Boyle, following his awesome Great Game India interview, had come onto the Corbett Report, rather than spending hours with that Limbaugh-of-Independant-Thought, Alex Jones. Talk about a self-own. None-the-less, Boyle remains an important voice, and James, I really think you ought to consider having him on.

      • Someone should forward this CBC investigative piece to Ms. Arsenault, so she can take the appropriate actions by cancelling her CBC feed, quitting her job, and alerting the authorities..
        nudge nudge wink wink… tongue in cheek
        She is no benign ” actor” in this, she is directly creating Propaganda, as is the cameraman, the editor and editor in chief.
        Not fired, prosecuted for their “responsibility” in shoving garbage like this at us at the tax payers expense.

        True dat, that at some points the CBC did at one time have some pretty good stuff. But does not “exonerate them of their criminality!
        Also left out is the CBC’s greatest act, reporting by omission, that it never happened at all, black out.. yeah a great bunch Cum Laude!

        But right now the CBC is ” The Ministry for Truth” and it needs to be shut down and then investigated..publicly and exposed

  4. When James did his 1 in a hundred routine in which he mentioned someone with cognitive processes going to a fact checker my first thought was “what person with any cognitive processes would go there?”

    However, I don’t think it’s a ridiculous strategy. They know their targets. The majority of net users stick to mainstream sources. And a significant portion never check out any news. Video games, TVs, etc. Most refuse to think at all. Sure we read dissent in the comment sections, but look at the views of the videos. Do they have tens and tens of millions of views? No. Maybe a million. And that’s rare. And of those, what percentage is sane and/or capable of rational thought? Just something to depress you with.

    • If it were any other way, we wouldn’t be in this pickle, would we?

      • True. But if we weren’t in this pickle, I’d be spending my time jousting windmills. A person achieves more of their potential with a greater opposition. How much more opposition can we ask for? You can’t have heroes without villains.

  5. отец says:
    Logical fallacies is the native language of politicians.

  6. Hi James.
    I can not understand how you could make such and episode without even mentioning the peace revulotion podcast at tradegyandhope.com and all of Richard Groves hard work trying to rediscover the Lost tools of learning aka the Trivium. Much of the answer to this problem lies here!!!

  7. Truth Investigator

    I had some ideas about making a fact checker.
    But the most important goal is to help people with critical thinking.
    So it is not a checker that says: Good or False.
    It in investigator that helps you to see the problems in an article.
    So you if you look deeper, you can learn from it.
    And this gives far more value over a simple checker.

    And based on the investigation we can come to a certain conclusion.
    You can also see how other people investigate it.
    Multiple investigations can be ordered in the most logical and most scientific
    supported order.
    With a different vote, all users can support their favorite conclusion
    (which should always be Aliens).
    There can also be a discussion board.

    • Common problems in short:

      1) Logical fallacies:
      Fallacies are a way to push to a conclusion without good reason.

      a) Straw-man

      b) Appeal to authority (“Experts say”)

      2) Scientific method:
      Can we determine what is scientifically certain?

      a) What is the evidence?
      Can the evidence be interpreted differently?

      b) What is possible and what else is possible?
      How can we check which one is correct?

      c) Are the parameters/circumstances the same?
      What conditions are important?

      d) Can everything be understood from the conclusions?

      3) Crime investigation:

      a) Just one witness, or biased witnesses.

      b) follow the money
      (Or other resources)

      c) Motives? Emotions?
      This is not about mind reading, but placing yourself in the same situation.
      What do they want? And/or what do they feel?
      Is there evidence for that?

      d) Did the witnesses or experts lie about something important?

      4) Your own Bias
      a) What do you want to be true or false? What are your feelings about it?
      b) Can you feel calm about it? (if not, also check with someone who is calm)
      c) Do you come to the same conclusion if you approach it from the other side?
      d) Can you understand why people would come to another conclusion without lying?

      5) Unknowns

      Sometimes we simply don’t know what happened exactly.
      And sometimes we only know a part of what happened.
      Just list the things that are important, but you don’t know for certain.

    • Sure there a some folks who don’t know how to go about crosschecking information and could benefit from a lesson. The dangerous crux of the mass hypnosis is that most are too lazy to look deeper than the headline and get more empowerment out of reaction than out of discussion. The ones who care about the truth and integrity are already here and other alternative sites.

      • Thanks for reply,
        I wrongfully expected far more replies to my solution.

        My plan is that People that want to
        have a thorough research, will interact.
        And this will increase the quality of the investigations.

        After a while, people may feel stupid for using
        the normal fact-checkers, that always dumb
        down the answers and are so often wrong.

  8. If I see something that looks really startling, I generally check the sources. Usually it doesn’t take long. But sometimes you find deliberate disinformation.

    A few months ago, just as the coronavirus craziness was starting to take off, I stumbled across a really convoluted piece of disinfo. I was searching for something on Facebook, and I came across a headline saying that the UK government was preparing to send in the military. It was being shared on the Facebook pages of Labour Party offshoots, by political activists, not “your granny” or “your credulous uncle”. This is the link to the piece:


    Yes, the World Socialist Web Site. What astonished me was the lengths the author had gone to to make it appear that it came from a credible source. The piece sourced the Mail on Sunday, but it was actually cobbled together from at least three different articles, none of which came from the Mail on Sunday, and each bit of truth was threaded together with stuff that had clearly been made up.

    It took me a while to work out what was going on, because when I cut and pasted a piece of the text, and ran it into an online search, it did relate to a source, but the more sensationalist claims didn’t.

    The article was also being shared by bloggers who clearly hadn’t bothered to check the sources.

    It really annoys me that this kind of stuff has a kind of credibility with political activists who pride themselves on their education and intellect, while the highly-sourced work of independent investigative journalists is condescendingly dismissed as “fake”.

  9. Three Derrick Broze Fact Checks are mentioned in the show notes above.

    Here is another from Derrick Broze which came up again this week.

    A MYTH…
    “Nazi Germany used Fluoride in the water to control people.”


    I can attest to what Derrick states.
    I virtually put everything on the “Dallas For Safer Water” website.
    During the course of adding to the website over the years, I repeatedly ran into this Nazi Germany Fluoride Canard.
    I searched and searched and searched to find an actual valid source with documentation which substantiates the claims.
    I never could find anything of substance.
    It is very difficult to try to find something which is not there, which is non-existent.

    I would cringe when an activist would mention the Nazi Germany Fluoride Canard to the media, or directly to the Dallas City Council, or in the comments of the newspaper.

    Definition – a false or unfounded report, rumor, belief or story. A fabricated report.

  10. Long time watcher, brand new subscriber.

    Loved the video, A+ tier quality content as always.

    One thing you didn’t mention, but I think is important, is how whenever there is a verifiable, documented “Conspiracy” that is proven fact – such as Operation Northwoods, Operation Paperclip, Operation Mockingbird, the Tuskegee Experiments, or MK Ultra, the “Fact Checkers” are suspiciously silent about it. Go ahead and type any of the above terms into the search bar on sNopes and you will get only tangentially related search results even though there is declassified official documentation proving them all to be real. You’d think if they were objective sources of truth they should confirm whenever the US government or big business is caught conspiring against the populace.

    • Good point Stephen.B
      Their silence reveals their intent.

      By the way, I’m glad you are here.
      We all are.
      Look forward to more comments from you.

  11. I’m very excited by this video, it is exactly what has been mulling and creeping and crawling around my brain.

    I can see it now
    Normy McNormieson: Are fact checking websites owned by Bill Gates?
    Fact Checking Website: Debunked, Bill Gates does not own a fact checking company.

    Having difficulty pretending to understand your friend of loved one’s dangerous conspiracy theories? Call our team of expert tracers and we can get through this together.

    • So what is a fact anyway?
      Dictionary says
      1. something that actually exists; reality; truth:
      2. something known to exist or to have happened:
      3. a truth known by actual experience or observation; something known to be true:
      4.something said to be true or supposed to have happened:

      Only when we all agree with what a fact definitively means can we accurately discuss it. Is it even possible to settle this matter?

      • Is McNormieson Irish?

        • Scottish but don’t fact check me on that.

          • That’s Irish humor for ya. Use a Scott for that role.

    • Agreed, it’s more reasonable to call it something like dependant source credit rating.

  12. If you blindly believe every other thing that comes your way, you’re guaranteed to have a false view of the world.

    And if you require 100% verifiable, concrete, court-admissible evidence in order to give any consideration to any new piece of information, you’re still guaranteed to have a false view of the world, since it’s pretty easy for the psychopaths in power to carry out their agendas without leaving a lot of that sort of evidence laying around.

    Conspiracy/truth research is essentially always about degrees of probability rather than clear-cut FACT or FAKE.
    And the more we research, the better we get at accurately assigning degrees of probability; the better we get at recognizing patterns, identifying cues and detecting bullshit.

    In other words, as a conspiracy/truth researcher, there are going to be extremely likely truths that you are aware of but which you won’t be able to prove to someone else (unless you’ve mastered Vulcan mind melding).

    Though the Michael Shermer disciples and other coincidence theorists of the world would detest the very thought of it, the fact of the matter is that conspiracy/truth researchers like James have a very special advanced skill that they don’t have; a skill for identifying truth; a skill that — like painting or violin playing — is established and mastered with time and effort, not instantly bestowed at birth or upon turning 18, or upon graduating high school or college.

    • I’ve found my research training while studying history has been invaluable. Though there is so much information out there that it is impossible to keep up!

    • I was wondering if the idea of “self awareness”, is just another in a continuum of thoughts? Or are we actually capable of parallel processing? I’m not too sure.

      but as for

      “,,,the better we get at accurately assigning degrees of probability; the better we get at recognizing patterns, identifying cues and detecting bullshit.”


      “Vulcan mind melding”

      I wonder if someone who is “self-aware”, is simply one who has a healthy access to memory (short and long term), and can therefore readily assemble rich verbal description, perhaps even backed up by substantive intents, which will then serve to win an argument, close a case, filibust the debunkling obfustcatter or even vulcanize?

      If so we need memory pills. I heard the kids were jacking-up on ginko extract before exams. though its also clear that good cognition isn’t enough, because the dark forces are using it (as well) at the moment to cull and worse.

      There is an overwhelming absence of respect amoungst our species, which in its penultimate form is the cliff edge before suicide. Traditionally, developing respectfulness for what one has been given and the symbiotic nature of lifes longing for itself, was garnered from initiation rites. or even the efforts to grow ones own food, but now,,,

      I suppose, as long as we’ve two foot steps and a heart beat, we’ve the means to hold the inner facts, up for the hungry ghosts to suck on until they melt back into the nether, and the horizon is clear once again.

  13. Is there any mainstream media that’s truthful? I just figure they’re all playing to their own agendas and don’t give a hoot about facts. It’s not like the msm has reporters (people that go find the truth and report it), they have news readers.

    • Not a single one. And as someone who has been on the scene in which reporters are present; I can say they are overwhelmingly the most obnoxious, self-serving, lying group of people I’ve ever met.

  14. Hi Jed. I like your poem. May I use? Credited to you, of course.

  15. It’s important to remember that they had to accept the brainwashing process.

    • “they had to accept the brainwashing process.”

      thats right,
      as one looks towards the flushing of minds down the drain, the farther one looks towards those in the accelerating spiral to oblivion whip end, we encounter many who wont or cant take responsibility to think critically (amoungst many other delinquencies), which is all turn on a dime forgivable once manners have been restored, but in the mean time, truth is, lotsa people are blithering like idiots.

      I try to follow this rule: if someone is keeping another from thriving, then I have a right to interfere, otherwise it aint my circus.

      for more sarcastic angles on geopolitics australian style, try:

  16. It was intentional. Mocking the power of censorship.

    • Your typing was muffled. Come agin.

      • Well, you know how we rednecks mangle every word we speak!

  17. We’re lucky.
    Many a time, I have been gently corrected on facts by fellow Corbett Report Members.

    What does the HEADER at the top of the webpage say?
    The Corbett Report
    Open Source Intelligence News

    Actually, that is a main purpose of these Corbett Report comment sections.
    To sift through information.

    I don’t think Corbett keeps the comment section because he likes to type the word SNIP.

    In the video, Corbett talked about “Solutions”.
    While the comment section is not an end all solution, it helps.

  18. I would like to clarify something about the importance of speed in warfare. It is one of the most decisive elements to victory. Even with a foolhardy plan. But it does offer us some opportunities.
    First; it is still going to take a lot more time to implement your strategy when you are dealing with an entire country or region. This gives us some time.
    Second; the very speed the state is using will alert many people who are presently sleeping. Though I doubt a whole lot more from now on. However, there will be a marked increase in the number of those who are aware, but are just keyboard warriors, to start becoming more determined to make a stand. The very notion of a substantial portion of a population prepared to fight back is a real deterrent. The only effective one. However, the state (and I mean every state buying into this crap. Belarus apparently ain’t drinking the Flavor-Aid. Happy Jeb?
    But this determination might make all the difference. And I know liberty will win. But we’re definitely going to lose a lot of stupid people either way. And the rest of the many ranges.

    • Just make sure you put a lot of sugar in it. Sounds pretty nasty!

  19. It is ironic that Epstein has become so mainstream in recent times, as opposed to being considered a “conspiracy theory” years back.
    And now, there are bucks to be made.
    And, it is election year…

    I wonder if the Fact Checkers will review this series…
    June 18, 2020
    Yahoo Entertainment by Kevin Polowy
    ‘Filthy Rich’ director talks Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘molestation pyramid scheme,’ relationships with Trump and Clinton

    As Netflix viewers have discovered in the weeks since its release, the four-part series Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich is an infuriating but urgent viewing experience — a comprehensive detailing of how the enigmatic financial powerbroker orchestrated a “molestation pyramid scheme” that went unchecked for decades because of his extreme wealth and connections.

    It’s heartbreaking to hear the stories of the victims who come forward, most of whom were underage and from disadvantaged backgrounds when they were molested, assaulted or raped by Epstein after being lured into his house under the guise of being paid to give him a massage. And it’s absolutely rage-inducing to examine the circumstances that let Epstein continue his reign of sexual abuse for an additional 12 years after he was first indicted in 2007, then given a “sweetheart deal” plea agreement and a slap-on-the-wrist prison sentence. Epstein died by an apparent suicide after he was finally arrested again in 2019…

    …The miniseries is loosely based on the 2016 book Filthy Rich: A Powerful Billionaire, the Sex Scandal that Undid Him by popular crime novelist James Patterson (the Alex Cross series), released long before Epstein made headlines worldwide following his arrest last July. “He was disappointed, as a world’s bestselling author, that people seemed to not be paying much attention,” says Bryant, who began production on Filthy Rich nine months before Epstein’s 2019 takedown. “And the press is to blame a little bit in itself for not being more outraged when things happened back then.”

    Patterson, who appears in the series, was a neighbor of Epstein in Palm Beach, Fla., where the financier and sex offender routinely lured high school girls to his mansion…

    Filthy Rich also looks at two of the more media-salacious relationships Epstein had over the course of his life with U.S. presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton….

  20. James , you have really hit your stride as a journalist. The old school has a chance to avoid extinction with that pants on fire approach. Can you really expect any one of this generation to have any memory of a journalist, investigative journalist. Anyone under 55 years of age has no model to reference. They have no idea of the purpose for a journalist. No ideal what ever how and what their purpose is/ was. The question is how do you counter the false culture once you pass the change of state. Its like concrete. Wet is pliable but once it changes state it becomes static and no longer pliable. Its hard as a rock and set in its new state.
    You have chipped away at it for years but now you are committed and producing at a whole new level. Thanks. That a fact. Just check it out. Problematic? Well ask Brock West. No short cuts.Mame. Just the facts.

    • generalbottlewasher says:
      James , you have really hit your stride as a journalist…producing at a whole new level.
      That’s a fact. …ask Broc West.

    • Nicely said. He’s a treasure to behold.
      Not only are we loosing good journalists but we don’t hear much pushback from actors, musicians and comedians these days either. Ian Brown? Morrisey? Neil Young? What do they think about all this.
      Saw this interview between Slow News Day and The Rugged Man and he is one of the few celebrities speaking up.


    • Those good journalists led us into every war we’ve ever had. They reported whatever the state wanted. It’s not that journalism has become corrupt, or any other branch of government. They’ve always been thus. It’s just you weren’t aware of it then.

    • Broc, I don’t know how you did that with a straight face.
      The Aussie accent gave you even more altitude with American viewers.

      Corbett’s kitchen scene was classic. What a script!
      You guys played that well.

      • Don’t let the final cut fool you HMS, I must of had about 100+ takes!

  21. On the other hand, if you ever wanted to convert the Corbett Report into a secret society, The fact checkers would be really useful at keeping organ donors and other riff raff away!

  22. “People have a hard time telling the difference between believing and knowing. We can believe we know things, we can speculate, but we don’t always have the facts.” David Broze

    Ty, David Broze. When considering anything out of the msm, it’s a question of epistemology. We can believe that a “novel” virus is spreading disease, but we don’t know it. We can believe that this “disease” is lethal, but we don’t know it.

    Are you repeating received opinions from the liars in govt and msm? Why do you think that if someone is sick, it’s da covid? Who put that thought into your head?


    • ccuthbert2001,
      Slight typo correction.
      It is Derrick Broze, not David.

        • Sure buddy. You are still my friend.

  23. Speaking of contact tracing; if you have GPS enabled on your dumbphone, you have the contact tracing app. I use a cheap android (LG with their 1 eye logo) and it’s found under Google in settings. Heard others in general. Might want to check if you have one.

    • And don’t forget they can be activated remotely. Funny how we all use them, despite knowing they are gamed by the state. Then again, I enjoy using my enemy’s weapons against them.

      • They are if you have the GPS and Bluetooth activated. I have neither. Not that I suffer from any illusions that that can’t be easily rectified. But I’m not that important. I’m just an old deranged vet living by the river like a bum. But I did get a nice note telling me how much Google respects my privacy. It was touching.
        I don’t care anyway. Once things go dark, they can track my phone all they want. It’ll be at the bottom of the river leaking toxins for years.
        Besides, despite this being their weapon, I find it useful in keeping abreast of what is going on. And I write my graffiti wherever I go. In short, I’m tracking them just as they’re tracking me. Just call me a super spy. Shaken, not stirred.

    • BUMP

      This has an Anarchist tint.
      Great rant. Great points.

    in Chien-Te Tseng &al.’s [#1] i don’t see anything about humans; and read “These SARS-CoV vaccines all induced antibody and protection against infection with SARS-CoV … However, challenge of MICE given any of the vaccines led to occurrence of Th2-type immunopathology suggesting hypersensitivity to SARS-CoV components was induced.”

    • well, what i know is that the RT PCR is not meant for diagnostics indeed, it is usually used to determine the viral load of a virus that has already been isolated, mapped and identified, and not to diagnose itss existence. so i would not be surprised if it says so in the product information.

  25. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/schools.html

    Well, the CDC just crashed the educational system. Thanks to Ron Paul’s homeschool newsletter for this. While he says it’s a boon for homeschooling, he failed to note it was intentional. Do I have facts to back this up? No. But I do know the system is being purposely crashed. Do I have any facts to prove the global societal crash is being done on purpose? No. But I do know that facts change all the time. One day that tree is a tree, the next it’s a set of frequencies. Truth transcends facts. But I digress.
    This is not unmitigated good news. Families are growing a bit tense. And people have grown so attached to this system that they can’t even imagine another. Child abuse is going to skyrocket. And while I think it’s going to be an improvement, the majority of children are going to suffer even more for a while.

    • Many parents are not in position to choose, since both parents have to work for survival and kids go to kindergarten a.k.a. school.

      I think good school (probably very hard to find and then also to pay) is better than homeschooling.

      Elon won’t homeschool his kids, his nanny will.

      • Oh, I had idyllic picture of kids and parents at the kitchen table…(not kidding)

        Word ‘homeschooling’ is just naming of phenomena, today words don’t need to adhere to their meaning, yeah, brave post-what-ever-you-want (and-who-knows-what-you’ll-get) world….

        Sure, might worth it, if you can afford it!!!

  26. Did some quick reading, interesting.

    Mortality decline happened in age group 1 month-1 year, otherwise unfortunates most heavily attacked by vaccines (infants with immune system under construction).

    Read carefully:
    “We have no specific data on the trend in SIDS deaths during the pandemic. We have, however, heard anecdotal reports from emergency room(ER)doctors suggesting some have observed a decline in SIDS. One doctor who say she might see 3 cases of SIDS in a typical week has seen zero cases since the pandemic and associated lockdowns began.”

    SIDS= Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, sudden death of previously healthy infant that could be result, “side effect”, of vaccination (30% of infants 1m-1y mortality).

    Strange, how they don’t have data, for any death person cause of death has to be known. They say no reason why is so and immediately start supporting their narrative with anecdotal data.

    Make your own conclusion.

  27. Cool, hard topics, I like it.

    What about episode no.2?

    @dnspedersen above mentioned Trivium, Richard Groves,…
    Epistemology could be added, philosophy of knowledge.

    Here is nice video (10min) about a problem in epistemology and more good videos on the topic on this channel (not so good videos on some other topics).

    PHILOSOPHY – Epistemology: ‘Knowledge First’ Epistemology

    I don’t agree with fact checking projects on either side. People should be encouraged to think, to collect knowledge.
    The latest “school reform” in our country is supposed to free kids from learning things by rote, because that’s logical, we have information technology, you can find anything on internet. Never mind this is close to impossible if you cannot name things or being unaware of its existence. By relieving kids they will make room for learning something completely new: Critical Thinking. Holy shit.

    There is not much thinking possible without data, information, already present in someone’s head.
    But foremost: since when a government prefer critical thinking people??? Sure, they changed, yes I believe them….yes, of course, I will be waited by hundred horny virgins in heaven.

    Exploring of knowledge should not pass over Limits of Knowledge. Goedel’s incompleteness theorems and Turing findings on halting problem are just two of many.

    Science already proved answering all questions is impossible, even which questions are answerable is impossible to know.

    But most of the time we don’t dwell in extremes. Might be we are not interested in full knowledge, for example, we just want to know if someone is lying to us. By having conversation (live not online) with someone we can make very reliable conclusions. Sometimes is only gut feeling people say.

    • Just above your comment I posted the new requirements for schools. Basically, the CDC just crashed the school system.

  28. you are a life saver James. i have been working on the Corona world order matter for about a month now, with a series of articles, explaining to my readers the roots of our current status. i started with the Civil War and Robber Barrons, and just wednesday night i was in a place to write a brief mention of Bill Gates, for which i relied on RFK’s work on the matter, (leaving your series till later ) and it proved to be a sound move. i expected pushback as soon as i left history started discussing current affairs, and so i offered but a taste of the Bill gates Buffet; if you explored RFK, you will find he is milder in his submissions since his concerns are strictly vaccines. As expected, they came out of the woordworks, slapping snopes and CheckAfrica and 90% of the checkers you cover here!!! it’s as if you knew that would happen and just sent me this gift, yet again saving me eons spent on refuting every fact check that was thrown at me …
    so far, i have not had a single response to my challenging the “factchecks” thrown at me 😀

  29. Rubbing it in their faces.
    Making the mainstream media eat crow.

    I admit it.
    I want to see the media and public figures become embarrassed for calling me a tinfoil hat nut about water fluoridation.
    I have seen so very many denigrating articles and public responses following the presentation of the science.

    I gotta tell ya…this Fluoride Trial went very, very well.

    There is no dispute that the developing brain is susceptible to the neurotoxic affects of water fluoridation. The Court recognized this.

    The current silence by the mainstream media is a testament of how well the trial went.

    Scientific studies demonstrate that the process of adding fluoride to public water reduces the IQ of the individuals in those areas.

  30. Just joined,1st comment,please be kind.
    Here in Scotland the “news” is that Covid-19 has been “involved” in around 4000 deaths.
    The facts surrounding how these figures are collected will be well known to readers here and are “sketchy” at best.
    I have asked, through social media, numerous members of the mainstream media and various prominent politicians, including Ch4 journalist Alex Thomson and Scotlands 1st Minister Nicola Sturgeon why we didn’t lockdown 2 years ago when this happened….https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/uk-scotland-45876204?__twitter_impression=true I have yet to receive any reply.
    Just to clarify, everyone that I asked had communicated with me until I posted the above link.

  31. James,

    Excellent work, as usual. On dealing with fake news, propaganda and fact checking,I would appreciate your thoughts on the concept of solipsism, and how it is marketed to the masses, specifically how it proposes that the whole truth (outside of one’s self) is unknown and unknowable. I think that this concept is very relevant to this discussion! THEY wish for us to believe that to know the truth is impossible or at least too difficult so that we will just give up and give in to the propaganda.

    May the blessings be.

  33. Reporting live from Downtown Tulsa. The Donald gave a schizophrenic 1+ hour speech laced with the discription of the bad bad people outside the building. An incoherent anecdotal story or three that would have rivaled the most confusing elocutionists.
    The black lives matter leadership spread the money Henry Zarrow gave the leadership to, hire a riot, provocatures and for the Sherif and city police to stay out of sight.
    The crowds came together at 4th and Cheyenne to duke it out and for once the guns didn’t come out as of 10pm. The nights young however, the take from Zarrow was took, mostly pocketed by the Black leadership and didn’t get spent on quality mercenaries or
    Quality provocatures. The cops didn’t show but someone had 1st year Army National guardsmen in full ruck packs and M-1s on duty. Trump red necks win the first skirmishes.
    The MSM coverage was on par with the Macys Thanksgiving Day parade coverage. Their scripted coverage seem to drive the rumble to a level not seen by the cameras. There was little or quit nothing to get jiggy with. An absolute failure.
    I did have a compelling urge to drive down there and yell that the News 6 reporter was a racist much like Dan Dicks encountered last week. But just couldn’t get motivated. This I attribute to the breathing of heavy chemtrailing chemicals all week above Tulsa County.
    Would expect The Donald made a million $ in reelection and merchandizing sales and contributions.
    The Demo Marxist Zarrow lost $6 mmillion on a nothing Burger.
    Zarrow and such Zoros, Rockefeller inspired monopolists and technocratic eugenicists of 1918 burnt the original Black Wall Street down cause competition as we all know is a sin and not allowed. That same One party came to town tonight and used the same two adversaries to try and reenact the same divisional war to cover much bigger crimes and the true agent provocatures that burnt this place to the ground in 1918. The one eyed midget is King in the land of the blind.

  34. Oh the irony! I used a fact checker just yesterday, as my daughter (hey maybe my rantings are getting through to the kids) worriedly said we all had a track and trace app on our phones, installed without our permission and without our knowledge. She showed me the Covid 19 thing on her iphone. I searched on my android phone for it and it was not there where she said it would be.

    A “rumour” had been spread on facebook about it:



    So I fact checked it (ugh) by a fact checker funded by facebook and google:


    So this video/piece was very apt James/Broc in more ways than one. What the actual? Did this happen via an update? And I know websites and businesses have the new Covid 19 speak notices/policies and what not, you cannot escape it, but this and why am I so infuriated/surprised?

    “Why would you watch a news show that isn’t skeptical of the government?”

  36. In the case of Event 201, it seems that the crux of Fake News accusations relates to the word “Predicted.” Prediction, of course, implies agency and intention, which may be legitimately conjectured, but is unknowable without whistleblowers and leaks to back it up. Perhaps a better phrase to use to avoid confusion and dismissal-risk would be “anticipated,” or more specifically “anticipated presciently,” maybe even “suspiciously and synchronistically anticipated.”

    On another note, in the context of other modern shock-doctrine style terror-mass-media events, we have all observed that 9/11 had a bevy of conveniently time ‘exercises that go live,’ just as the 7/7 tube attacks did, and at least one of the mass shooter events (was it Sandy Hook?): clearly and oh-so “coincidentally.” Experientially, the SARS-Cov-2 Bio-warfare Response with Shutdown phenomena feels a lot like “9/11, the Sequel: super-slow-motion state-sponsored apocalypse.” Within this analogy, Event 201 completely fits this model of Exercise-Gone-Live, and this is the context through which it ought to be viewed.

  40. Hi James, im not sure if youve already seen this but i figured I’d post anyway since this is happening in our own backyard. Im a legal gun owner in Canada and the recent gun grab (done with emergency powers) by Trudeau with just the stroke of a single pen has me more than worried. The language on the face of it makes it seem like theyre just trying to ban ar15’s but when you look at what was actually signed under technical definitions and confirmed by rcmp, they have also now effectively banned the most widely used hunting gun in history. The language “guns with a 20mm bore or greater” has now made the ownership of 12ga shotguns with removable chokes (most modern ones have these) illegal and subject to theyre costly buy back program. This is concerning enough by itself in light of the recent clamp down globally, however its now been revealed by macleans magazine that the shooter may have indeed been an undercover agent. Im hoping we can dig into this before the gun grab takes full effect, heres hoping the power of open source journalism can shed some light on this incredibly pivotal situation.




  41. hey man, if hanging your tie dye phone dont work out you could always try keeping it in a groovy lava lamp ☮️✌️

      the lava lamp brought out the scientist in me… bought a smartphone six pack, pulled one out, grabbed my corded phone, put on my vinegar conehead mask & black plague spacesuit, jumped into my keg of corona beer. next morning, the keg was empty, & after unwinding the tele cord from round my neck, tested both phones, wtf? both were dead. so i stuck ’em in the dryer watched ’em go round & round w/ suit & mask for several hours & just as i suspected would happen — my beloved landline worked perfectly, i couldnt get a dial tone with the stupid smartphone. im planning on doing a series of unbiased scientific experiments demonstrating the superiority of corded phones, next up: Train Kept a Rollin’

  42. As usual, James has elevated my paradigm from a hodgepodge of suspicions to an orderly set of credible beliefs. This report is a masterpiece. The fact-checker strain of disinformation affirmation must go way back. Even the Athenians would have been grateful for a transcript of Propaganda Watch.
    Information comes my way through the Corbett Report, NYT, Washington Post, Rachel Maddow, and slightly left-leaning sources that would make Karl proud. Many well-regarded newspapers include facts, but bury them deep in the story. Rachel Maddow is the most entertaining cable news host (since Keith Olbermann semi-disappeared) and my favorite MSNBC personality until she touted the Pentagon’s fantastical 9/11 comic book. The souls of the in-crowd have a price, and media stars must have sold theirs for a job and multimillion-dollar salary. I would do the same for far less.
    My eye-opener was Operation Mockingbird, the CIA’s insertion of operatives in to media outlets to print all the news that fits. “Lie” is such an ugly and overused pejorative. The government’s story guardians don’t lie sometimes, they mostly transform above-boiling truths into sub-tepid parables that comply with corporate rules of etiquette. Notably, the spy agency has NEVER DENIED the rumor that fact non-checkers accomplish their mission armed only with an office near the editing room and scissors.

  43. Right out of the play book.

    An expert at the Reuter’s fact check site contracicts an expert from the The New York Times. DNA vaccines don’t change your genetic makeup—true or false?

    From today’s Jon Rappoport’s post.

    [I edited for length. Go to JR’s site (above) for full article]

    Let’s fact-check Reuters: they say DNA vaccines don’t change your genetic makeup—true or false?

    Jon Rappoport

    As my readers know, I’ve been reporting on new types of technology that could be used in a coming COVID-19 vaccine—and warning about the consequences.

    One such technology is: DNA vaccines. They would alter recipients’ genetic makeup permanently.

    But Reuters has seen fit to claim: “A future COVID-19 [DNA] vaccine will not genetically modify humans.” This comes from their “fact-check team” — May 18, 2020: “False claim: A COVID-19 vaccine will genetically modify humans.”

    To reach this conclusion, Reuters cites two people: “Mark Lynas, a visiting fellow at Cornell University’s Alliance for Science group”, and “Dr. Paul McCray, Professor of Pediatrics, Microbiology, and Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa.”

    I have cited the New York Times, March 10, 2015, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” Here are quotes from the Times article:

    “By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] monkeys, the scientists are essentially re-engineering the animals to resist disease.”

    “’The sky’s the limit,’ said Michael Farzan, an immunologist at Scripps and lead author of the new study.”

    “The first human trial based on this strategy — called immunoprophylaxis by gene transfer, or I.G.T. — is underway, and several new ones are planned.” [That was five years ago.]

    “I.G.T. is altogether different from traditional vaccination. It is instead a form of gene therapy. Scientists isolate the genes that produce powerful antibodies against certain diseases and then synthesize artificial versions. The genes are placed into viruses and injected into human tissue, usually muscle.”

    [Here is the punch line] “The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.”

    So it’s a battle of the experts. The two men Reuters cited, versus the Times’ David Baltimore.

    The verdict on the Reuters fact-check team? Fact-checkers checked the wrong box.

    Final point for the moment: Researchers are fond of saying their genetic technologies are quite safe. This a bald-faced lie. Claiming, for example, that a DNA COVID vaccine would alter humans’ genetic makeup in entirely predictable and harmless ways is like saying a car without brakes, doing a hundred miles an hour, set loose on a highway during rush hour, would create no damage whatsoever.





  44. Interesting, in that one clip with the attractive woman with the print dress and the British accent, that governments, tech companies and media regulators are responsible for what happens to a story that is deemded to be fake news.

    This is the crux of the problem. Who made them the arbiters of Truth? Who made them the standard by which Truth is determined?

    If people won’t see this as a real problem, then all hope is lost. People don’t want to think anymore.

    I certainly don’t know everything, but I’m willing to entertain many possibilities as to what is true and what is not. Above all, I live by what conforms to reality.

  45. Leadstories.com (fact checking website) is-

    – run by editor-in-chief Alan Duke, who worked as a journalist at CNN for 26 years!!!

    – co-founded by Maarten Schenk is a “trainer” for the DEPARTMENT OF STATE’s “TechCamp,”

    Techcamp are:

    – “hands-on participant-driven workshops, that connect private sector technology experts with journalists, non-governmental organizations, civil society advocates etc, to explore and apply innovative tech solutions to global issues”

    Mr Schenk also created a software tool to find/source the origin-point of “fake news” (the tool is called ‘trendolizer’, and another tool is called Maarten Schenk… ;)… After the 2016 election results were widely blamed on fake news, Facebook partnered with a number of fact checking organizations to fight the spread of fake news, and eventually used Lead Stories as its primary partner.

    Leadstories also receives $359,000 from Facebook for a third part fact checking partnership…




  46. Also, don’t forget that seasonal illnesses have infection/death counts reset during the summer. Which makes sense, because the flue season ends when the winter ends. Will we see the statistical charade adhere to this simple principle?

  47. hi Alchemist, you could try this link, if you can stand the horrors: https://healthwyze.org/reports/161-sudden-infant-death-syndrome-and-the-vitamin-c-connection.

    it says “approximately 2,600 babies die each year from sudden infant death syndrome in the U.S. alone”. so that may give a reference for calculating the ‘baby death deficit’ caused by corona.

    vaccines are given together with a proper dose of some deadly poison, with the optimistic view, that the immune system would be woken by the poison, because immune systems do not by themselves react to small quantities of weakened or killed bacteria or viruses. without the poison no immunity would result.
    meanwhile, it’s taken for granted, that the available vitamin-c in the body will do away with the poison.

    sadly, it may just not be there and they cannot reveal their true way of working for this would wreck their current bussiness model. so let the little suckers die, pecunia non olet. that was some latin, watch out for more.

    someone from the inside of vaccine manufacturing once called this ‘the dirty little secret of vaccination’. of course, the littleness of this ‘little secret’ is very relative. if your child dies it becomes rather huge, though the manufacturer may not give a shit about a few dead babies. and yes, there are much bigger secrets with many many more deaths behind the medical-pharmaceutical maffia.

    actually, what the link above says about vitamin-c may work out two ways in the current situation. on the one hand people get scared by the pandemic narrative, which takes away their vitamin-c, as fear is an important stressor. as a result, breast feeding mothers may have less c in their milk and more sids will happen.

    on the other hand, it seems the idea of taking vitamin-c under these circumstances is becoming wide spread, so even with the same level of vaccinations, there could be less sids babies. it’s funny how the world changes all the time.

    if the breast feeding mother takes a few grams of c a day, the baby will be safe. of course feeding your children poison is not attractive at all, so better do not vaccinate. but if you were forced into it, god forbids, take your precautions.

    for babies that are not breast fed, but still vaccinated, dr.klenner advises 500mg a day to start with and after that an extra gram a day for every year of age up to age ten.

    see also: http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v16n35.shtml.

    and: do not take my word for anything i say, do your own research and tell me where i failed.

    ceterum censeo gulo-fraudem esse delendam.


  48. Hmmm… that CBC piece didn’t age very well.

  49. A chilling update to the activities of Newsguard. Article from Children’s Health Defense. “Under a deal announced last month, American Federation of Teachers agreed to purchase NewsGuard licenses for its entire membership of teachers — 1.7 million in total — making the NewsGuard tool available to tens of millions of public school students and their families.


    RED ALERT. RED ALERT. This MUST be stopped. I am organizing in Virginia.

    • Thanks sninvegas.

      Backed by Big Pharma, NewsGuard Brings ‘Fact Checking’ to Tens of Millions of Kids in Schools

      The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is partnering with NewsGuard — a for-profit “fact-checking” company with deep ties to Big Pharma — to help students in U.S. classrooms “navigate a sea of online disinformation.”

      AFT is the second-largest teachers’ union in the U.S. It’s also a staunch advocate of mandatory COVID vaccination and masks for schoolchildren.

      Under a deal announced last month, AFT agreed to purchase NewsGuard licenses for its entire membership of teachers — 1.7 million in total — making the NewsGuard tool available to tens of millions of public school students and their families.

      Teachers will receive licensed copies of NewsGuard’s internet browser extension, providing access to its “traffic light” ratings and “nutrition label” reviews evaluating the purported reliability of news and information websites when those sites are visited.

      Announced during “News Literacy Week,” AFT touted the agreement as an opportunity for its member teachers to play a bigger role in helping their students “navigate a sea of online disinformation.”..

      …a closer look at NewsGuard’s advisers, partners and investors reveals a web of interests closely linked to the military, intelligence, media and political establishments, as well as to the world of corporate marketing — including an advertising agency sued for illegally marketing opioids….

      • Easy for me to ask. But why is anyone who is clued in to reality still sending their children off to state schools?
        I am aware of how convenient it is to have one’s children under the care of someone else while the parents work but aren’t children the most important investment.
        I wonder how many folks could downsize their homes, sell off a car or buy a used one. Seems like kids should be worth making great personal sacrifices for.
        How can a parent justify putting their most precious responsibility into the hands of their enemies?
