  1. My son did 1 tour of duty in Korea, then 2 in Afghanistan and 3 tours in Ramadi Iraq where he had his hearing completely gone in one ear and compromised in the other. The reason I tell you this is because after serving 16 years and 9 months in the US Army and with his hearing loss they told him he could still finish his 20 year career by teaching the last 2 years at fort Benning, GA.
    Well that was a lie, he was forced to take a early retirement once stationed back at Benning, and for them doing this to him made him bitterly angry and confused. He told me he didn’t know what he did wrong, why did they lie to me, he didn’t care about the money he was a career soldier and now he was at a cross roads that left him with nowhere to go. He has PTSD but of course wouldn’t listen to his mother and me and get help, on July 4th 2015 he took his pistol and killed himself after going out partying with some brothers in arms. FUCK THE US ARMY AND … OHHH, I

    • I’m so sorry to hear this. Your son (and your family) deserves so much more.

    • I am saddened to hear this. Thanks for sharing A57.

  2. Channel restricted, contains incitement for hatred. Haha, well well well.

  3. Seeing the re-promotion of this fantastic “Episode 123” (there’s a hidden meaning in there somewhere, I’m sure ;)) warms my heart.

    I forget how many times I have used/promoted this episode in my writing.

    The thing I love about the episode is that JC actually dug up some original audio, so that we can actually hear the man. Gruff, honest, forceful; one can understand why soldiers fought beside and for him.

    His journey is one of inspiration. I have said many times that his portrait should hang in the Oval Office as a warning and guiding light.

    Thank you, James, for reviving this all too important episode.

  4. I thought the article about Palantir was excellent, just for the record.

    • Comments don’t reflect impact. Truth seldom applause. War is a Racket, probably not a New York Times bestseller (speculation on my part), but relevance nearly a century later can’t be understated.

  5. Dear James
    Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE comment on the recent elections in Brazil and the victory of Lula(“left”)? Supported by the most corrupted and mercenary TV station Rede Globo? And by all those fu**ing rich, white, celebrities “pro-vaccine pro-black pro-women pro-poor pro-lgbt pro-trans pro-climate change pro-war/jugment/blood/violence of anyone who disagrees and pro-bullying of any pro-choice free-thinker alive?
    Are elections even a true thing? Or it’s all staged?
    Thank you!

  6. Meet Smedley Butler (2010) really strikes an emotional chord for a mature audience.

    I think that Butler’s energetic passion, his unswerving dedication to the humanity of man resonates with all of us at Corbett Report.
    In my eyes, this is what it means to be human.

  7. Its no wonder this was and is a popular video.
    With the innocuous title of ‘Meet Smedley Butler’ you might assume its going to be a dreary episode about another cog in the New World Order machine. Instead, it lays bare the whole stinking Globalist / New World Order plot for all to see.

  8. Dear James and Brock,

    Firstly, I was unaware that there was a new video for this. I thought it was just the original. I can see that Brock has done an excellent job of adding new visuals to the original episode.

    Secondly, thank you for the acknowledgment.

    You state that as a creator one cannot be sure as to whether a piece of work will connect with an audience. Some beautiful creations do not receive the air beneath their wings, while other maybe/maybe-not creations soar. Fair call.

    However, this had to succeed. You have the most decorated US Marine in history turning into a peacenik and recognizing that he has been serving as the muscle for US corporations, and to cap it off he exposes a fascist plot in the 1930s in the US. How can this NOT fly?

    It is because of these elements that make the story so important, and thus easy to “spruik”. Or to put that another way, it is easy to sell a good product.

    Thank you, Brock, for adding graphics to elevate this classic episode. It flies again!


      • Wooops. Thanks for the korrection.

        Broc it is. Apologies to the masterful video editor and his parents.

  9. Thanks James, triggered me into buying the Audiobook of Gen Butler’s book. Particularly poignant as NATO fights its proxy war with Russia until the last Ukrainian has died.

  10. Alex Jones/CNN video at the DailyMotion link doesn’t work ?. I couldn’t find any other that would either… anyone have a working link, I’d like to see that.

  11. James, to reinforce your point of never knowing what will resonate with people, my most read article remains “to this day” one on the Dutch farmer protests. It’s a little “off topic” for me. It took only a day to research. But there it stands.

    So, yep. Ya just dont know. 🙂
