Episode 374 – The Greatest Depression

by | Mar 28, 2020 | Podcasts | 140 comments

The Age of Terror was inaugurated with a series of controlled demolitions in New York City on September 11, 2001. Now the world is being led into the Age of Biological Terror with a controlled demolition of the economy that is already causing unprecedented carnage across markets and around the globe. As the dust settles on this demolition, an entirely new economy is ready to be erected in its place: one in which no citizen will be out of the sight of the all-seeing government. This week on The Corbett Report we examine the details of this collapse and why the bankster class is seeking to destroy the financial Ponzi scheme that they themselves created.

  1. Hi Corbett. Just wondering if you have looked into this-space based blockchain- “Sovereign Sky”.. it hits spot on to a universal currency. Check it out. It be great to hear your take. https://sovereignsky.com

  2. Coronavirus pandemic leading to huge drop in air pollution

    ‘Largest scale experiment ever’ shows what is possible as satellite images reveal marked fall in global nitrogen dioxide levels

    Slip of the tongue or they simply want everyone to know? To know, but to not know, if you know what I mean. You know?

    Anyway, kind of anticlimatic (pardon the pun) not to have any mention of the damned CO2 gas of life thrown in there for a good measure. CO2 sets everything up and then Nitrogen swoops in ad takes the cake. Maybe next time, CO2.

    • How did the “la resistance” manage to survive, one has to ask. In this climate they would be a more immediate danger from compatriots than the enemy spies.

      But, I’m affraid this is what the entirety of Europe has been brough down to. Fear infested, socialized to the rotten core, servile, indentured, pathetic bunch of sycophants.

      Rats have stronger sense of right and wrong than this bunch of spoiled old children, triggered by fear and skewed self-preservation instinct. People such as these don’t write history, they don’t even take part in it.

      • Well, I wouldn’t have them executed, if that’s what you’re asking. But I wouldn’t piss on them to put out a fure, either. I’ll put up with members of my family who are of that disposition, but my generosity doesn’t extend any further that that.

        There really isn’t any way back from this point. The wast majority are ready to ride this silently out, until it’s “over”. They don’t know when or how, but they are ready to wait because reasons.

      • Would it make you feel better if I stated that I wouldn’t have an issue urinating over you if push came to shove?

    3/28/2020 Corbett Report’s Episode 374 – The Greatest Depression
    A Bookmark Historical Timeline Episode

    Holy Cow!
    I am soooo impressed!
    James Corbett’s “economic acumen” shines like a sky searchlight beam ! It should make some of the mainstream economic pundits blush.

    I follow the markets, and yet I had missed many, many, many of the important event topics which Corbett laid out in his timeline coverage.
    As I was watching, I would also look above at my wall calendar to follow the flavor.

    Corbett hit a lot of economic nomenclature of which I was completely in the dark and blank with understanding, yet I could grasp the implications.

    I was shocked about the Ides of March. March 15th…a SUNDAY
    No Reserve Requirements for Banks.
    No Reserve Requirements for Banks.
    Did we get that?!
    Zero. Zip. Nada.

    Investopedia : Basics of Reserve Requirements
    Banks loan funds to customers based on a fraction of the cash they have on hand. The government makes one requirement of them in exchange for this ability: keep a certain amount of deposits on hand to cover possible withdrawals. This amount is called the reserve requirement…

    I could go on and on about this Episode, but I’ll cut it short.

    But, I gotta tell ya!… History is happening in a major way.
    I am so glad that Mr. Corbett is documenting it.

    (An aside: That suit and tie and color look good on Corbett. It also was the right wardrobe for this Episode.)

    • Solutions – ANECDOTE as I watching this Episode

      Talk about timing…
      Saturday morning as I am watching this Corbett Report Episode “The Greatest Depression”, I get a call from an “unknown number”.

      Wow! It was a Corbett Report Member who I had not spoken to in a few years. What a thrill!
      From the get-go of the conversation, we were on the same page. We filled each other in on various topics and how our families and kids were doing and such.

      One of the “Solutions” things that she mentioned was that this year, she zoomed out to get her Spring garden in the ground right away. She is way ahead of me.
      I asked her if they still had their chickens. Yep, they do. She said that now, the chickens are somewhat considered to be ‘gold’.

      We discussed how there were a lot of Corbett Report Members from Texas, and also from our area of Texas. There is a large community of like-minded individuals in our neck of the woods.

      We shared information on how to handle the potential mandatory vaccines, and local Doctors, and also alternative health aspects.

      She has medical training and ICU hospital experience.
      An interesting anecdote which she told me was that during the 1980’s in the Houston area, she saw a lot of women who were suffering from Guillain-Barré Syndrome and that there was a personally observable link to the vaccines.

      During the conversation, mentally, I flashed to Corbett Report’s recent revisit (March 14th, 2020) of his 2009 Episode 086 – Medical Martial Law.
      This was a timely and profound Corbett revisit. Here is a comment on that Episode 086, which also leads to a “60 Minutes Show” detailing “Guillain-Barré Syndrome”.

      Anyway, our conversation made my day!
      Just so folks know…
      originally, a few years back, we ‘discovered each other and others’ on the Corbett Report community, and then saw one another at a local area VAXXED film event.

        • Fear factor is out of proportion, but believe me, you don’t want to get a nastier version of this illness.

          60 minutes show you recommended is revealing, msm are unable, better said unallowed, to make a show like this for a long time.
          In show notes of the video there is a link and you can see how differently health scare was handled in 2009.

          Swine Flu – Deja Vu

      • Ooops. I forgot to insert the link in my above, first “anecdote” comment.

        During the conversation, mentally, I flashed to Corbett Report’s recent revisit (March 14th, 2020) of his 2009 Episode 086 – Medical Martial Law.
        This was a timely and profound Corbett revisit.
        Here is a comment on that Episode 086, which also leads to a “60 Minutes Show” detailing “Guillain-Barré Syndrome”.

      • Thank you for that HRS. My sister was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome several years ago and has been living in constant pain; legs, feet, joints hurting, difficulty walking. I finally located the 60 Minute link. When my sister was initially diagnosed with GBS I asked if she had had a recent flu shot. She said no, and doubted that had anything to do with her condition. My girlfriend is a retired nurse and doesn’t share my concern about vaccines because in her 40 years in the health care profession, she rarely encountered anyone with a debilitating disease as a result of a vaccination.
        I lived in LA during the mid 70s and believe I contracted the swine flu, although it was never diagnosed. It was 1975 when I became ill, then sicker than I’ve ever been in my life. I was treating it with mega doses of vitamin C in addition to a diet of fresh fruit and veggies. After 3 weeks of vomiting, headaches, severe lethargy, I went to a free clinic to see an MD. After explaining my strategy, he told me: “A diet won’t do anything for you. You could get by on eating Snickers every day.” I could not believe it. He was a young MD right out of medical school and this is what he’d been taught.
        He prescribed tetracycline which knocked it out. They say antibiotics aren’t effective against the corona virus, and that may be the case, but if I did have the swine flu, which was rampant at the time, the strong antibiotic got rid of it.
        No one I know shares my views about the corona virus ushering in a digital currency and the effects that will have on our lives unless we take steps to break free of the system. Apropos, I have tried to find a good, instructive, step-by-step tutorial, “a mesh network for dummies”, but have been able to come up with one. I’ve searched the CR Solutions but don’t see it. Did I miss it? Do you know of a good resource?
        Thanks for all your posts. Hail to Home Remedy Supply!
        And James, bless you for taking birth. Lighting the way through this nefarious globalist New World Disorder minefield. Many of us would be lost without you.

        • flybyknightusa,
          Interesting anecdote.
          I think that any number of factors might prompt Guillain-Barré Syndrome, not solely vaccines.
          Certainly mercury or aluminum might have some kind of association with some individuals.

          As I understand it, a major liability of a viral infection like the flu, could be a bacterial infection onslaught.
          The body might be handling the virus okay, but the immune system becomes overwhelmed when a bacteria infection occurs.
          This is why antibiotics are typically prescribed, although they have no direct effect on the virus.
          And, we know that parasites, fungi, bacteria, and viruses can co-exist as part of the microbiome.

          Could you clarify this?…
          I have tried to find a good, instructive, step-by-step tutorial,

          I’ve searched the CR Solutions but don’t see it.
          Did I miss it?
          Do you know of a good resource?

          Perhaps, other Corbett Report Members might offer ideas.

      • Hey HRS! I should have known you’d have the first statement that actually has something to do with solutions rather than just admiring the iceberg that just hit the ship. So what are you doing to get into your liferaft?
        Me? I got sick of the stupid on the 20th. Been fishing on the river since. He’ll, all anyone has to know is the reserve requirements are gone and they should have enough sense to figure out they oughta have a plan. But, in a world ruled by stupid everyone just begs to be told what to do and think. Did you hear Schumer read their teeny 2.3 trillion relief? Straight outta Atlas Shrugged. Didn’t work well. Going back into town on Tuesday to get some goods. It’ll be tough, but I’ll try not to beat one of those sky is falling townies to death. Low on battery power now. But I’ll get back to you.

        Jimbob: I gotta fishing pole and a crossbow and a river. When you really know the land, that’s all the plan you need. P.S. have you planted your garden yet? Not you hrs. I know you have. PPS Surgeon general now says corona cold may have a .1 mortality rate. But crashing civilization is our response. I’m pissed.

        • Jim Bob !
          You ole wild-hair, loud-mouthed Red-Neck curmudgeon!
          Damn boy! It is good to hear that nasty voice of yours.

          We don’t get younger, do we?
          I would have a beer to toast to ya, but I already had my limit (one).

          I’m glad to see ya agin’ buddy!
          Until later,
          I’ll see ya when I see ya.

          • Hey manbearpig and hrs! Yep, still yelling at them young whippersnappers, though I smoke those left hand cigs instead of beers. But I’d compromise and chug a hard cider with either of you. However, I didn’t come back here to party.
            The dumping of reserve requirements means they’re about to flush the dollar. Not much choice with their model anyway. Which means (for a variety of reasons) that America has fallen.
            So, my question to everyone here is what are you doing to prepare yourselves? Not everyone can live off the land. But everyone can plant a garden. Even if all you have is a window.
            We can’t do anything about what has happened, but we can win our freedom. The powers that cower will not win. I promise you that. How can I say such a thing? Because if ya’ll don’t figure out something, I’ll raise an army of rednecks. But I’d rather not. So, what are you doing to earn your freedom?

        • Hopefully you still have some bullets left over from the skirmish with jolly old gramps and his elk ilk.

    • Albus,
      I went to the Fed site to look at the note outlining the zero reserves requirement and searched the “ample reserves regime” that they purportedly eliminated the reserve requirements.Is it your opinion that the new regime is not necessarily bad? I’m perpetually distrustful of the Fed but want to understand, perhaps this is not so nefarious, or perhaps it is.

      It seemed to me that the new Ample Reserves Regime actually increases the amount the Fed holds on it’s balance sheet for banking reserves purposes (not sure if this is linked to the ‘repo’ market), but it would not beholden banks to hold the reserves as the Fed would do so (at least in the US, I have no idea if this can be exported to other jurisdictions, as the US dollar enjoys world-reserve currency status).

  4. Excellent work James and Broc. Thank you for this.

  5. I’m a bit confused by James’s schism. Considering 9-11 strong points (training exercise, new normal, conspiracy theories, terrorists, who could have thunk it) I really don’t see the similarity with covid-19. Now everyone is a terrorists, especially the unknowing, not only easy to profile, turban wearing, beard wielding middle easterners.

    Also, I for one am glad that we finally got rid of fractional reserve lending. Those fractions were like a pebble in the economy’s shoe.

    I would like to point out one distinction, however. How are supposed to be tax cattle if they give us allowance?

    • Allowance, UBI, or however you want to name it, will come with strings attached. Tax in future might be working something, for common good of course, probably something stupid to kill human spirit.
      People might be even happy being engaged in this, because otherwise they might be bored and boredom is very close to disgust observing from emotional perspective.
      So, someone might be happy to be cattle, to get some burden to carry.
      The others could choose to be something like pet animals.

      mkey says:

    • James cobbled up something together for the Glass-Steagall thing.

      Regarding the tax cattle, what I implied was that if the gubment hands out pocket money, the whole concept of tax cattle goes down the drain. Besides, why would they care about tax “money” when they simply “print” (add ones and zeroes on servers) “money” to their heart’s content? Taxation is just a form of keeping the people down by extracting well deserved (or ill deserved, but still) prosperity from their lives. And making a bit of cash to be stashed on the side.

  6. I don’t think anyone understands the full implications.
    The video will make most people confused, because they can only
    see a part of the whole happening.

    But it is clear that different agendas by different powers are laid out.

    1. Technocracy (Brave new world)

    2. Federal Reserve (Godfather)

    3. Pentagon’s eternal war (1984)

    4. Google/facebook – Complete Censorship and Push of Propaganda (1984)

    5. Technocratic De-huminization (Planet of Apes)

    Still missing:

    A. The Cocaine Import Agency for terrorism (including bioweapons)

    B. The Sexual Predator Class that did not kill themselves.

    • It is easier to identify certain groups and people.
      They all have different goals, and only share some ideas.
      Some of those ideas is totalitarianism and strong censorship.

    • The Covid-19 problem can be summarized as

      1) pushing a technocratic agenda via creating a FAKE fear.

      It is fake, as in the west and S-Korea it is not more dangerous
      than any flue. It is only 1 fifth of a bad flue.
      It seems dangerous, because most of the statistics are invalid.
      See below for link

      2) hiding the problems of the failed economy and giving funds to those who created the problems.
      Creation of a debt-economy system that can be very hard to escape from.

      3) More totalitarian groups jump into the ship.
      – Bill Gates projects his dream of making everyone connected to a computer.
      – Google wants to track everyone’s movements, now legal.
      – The Medicine industry see a permanent state of emergency medicine.


      And all this just starts going away,
      now we have a simple and cheap cure.

      The Cure is here already

      But because Trump promoted it, the US media and Google
      are censoring it.

      Flue is 5 times more dangerous than Covid-19

      Bad statistics and wrong reporting create the illusion
      of a very dangerous disease

      • Doctors to Media: “There is no dangerous Corona Pandemic”
        Video in German with translations
        Mediziner gegen Medien: “Es gibt keine gefährliche Corona-Pandemie”

        There are not many patients in hospital.
        Wrong treatments likely have caused deaths.

        Media create an imaginary Pandemic..

        • ^^^^

          You should all watch this video

          Video is much better than I thought.
          It is a must-watch, and illustrates the real problem.

          One gem at the end:
          In Italy, the Traffic deaths and Cancer deaths, are put on the Corona list, to make the number bigger.
          The Italian government does this to get more funding from the EU,
          for their well-known economic problems.

          • zyxzevn,

            Pretty mind blowing video. I only wish the translating was more comprehensive at times. But, nonetheless, this report is like a smoking gun! So much for the theory of that tight concentrated pocket of NO2 over Northern Italy exacerbating the coronavirus epidemic in that particular region, which seemed to make a ton of sense. But, no. If this video is correct, Northern Italy forms a tight pocket of complete corruption on the part of the Italian medical authorities utterly distorting reality, blowing the whole corona thing way out of proportion; and that goes for Berlin, which according to the video, medical activity is even less than normal!

            It certainly makes you wonder, on an international level, to what extent the threat of this pandemic is not only exaggerated, but completely fabricated, in terms of the distortion of actual numbers, and their actual causes.

            What this video spells out in large, clear letters is that the coronavirus pandemic is essentially a H-O-A-X!

            It’s hard to fathom that the media, conspiring with major medical institutions, on an international basis, which no doubt would have to be orchestrated by organizations such as the WHO, would think they could cover-up something like this?

            If this video isn’t itself a hoax, and the interviewees are legitimate, then ultimately there are going to be any number of health practitioners worldwide who are going to be willing to blow the whistle on all this nonsense, at least at some point when the dust settles. And when that happens, and the counter narrative is as convincing as stated herein, it’s possible that the fallout will not only discredit organizations such as the WHO, but rather destroy them in a backlash they may not have envisioned. In other words, they may be playing a calculated gambit in a game they’re going to lose.

  7. The planes have been flying and the pollution is thick. The fog getting to the ground is not too good for clear thinking.
    Not to mention night time temps rise 10°f.
    While spending the better part of the day outside yesterday, I attempted to explain to a group that gathered every hole, on the concepts of ” Que Bono” ” Habius Corpus” and extremly complex use of the murder weapon and the arsenal of the Banking elite that are the assassins for hire. Inflation and recession and asset reallocation. QE and the destruction of the economy that was the largest economic engine and how the weakest possible economic system, communism, has subplanted the largest healthy system in just 90 days.
    Some did not know what a false flag was. Some could not fathom a State act upon its population. No that can’t be! I asked them, How much of your retirement evaporated? Why can’t you produce an income now? Don’t you realize its not a virus but the instrument , weapon to use on YOU to perpetrate the perfect murder, CRIME? Does anyone here know of anybody that has it?
    So why don’t you see it for what it is?
    The one liners just keep coming. Much like the planes that where spraying ahead of the front that was coming in. I was not about to mention them to this group of wide eyed deer. They had already heard to much to compute any more…
    It wasn’t till the 16th hole that the pea sized hail slowed us down so I could hammer them with ” where do you get all your perceptions of the world. They got it! The fact that none of them realized all that they thought was given to them by someone else, until now. Rather productive day I’ d say.

    • The Dentist I was playing with was so upset over the heavy handed State closing him down for 2 weeks his ADA/AMA blinders where temporarily lifted. I pointed out he spends 12 hours a day 4 days week in peoples pie holes and can’t remember ever getting sick. I ask him how dirty are pie holes? He claimed they are cesspools. He was most upset with the fact the state took all his supplies. I didn’t ask if he was compensated for the conscription of all his supplies. Just didn’t want to kick his Professional Association while it was down. Im like that.
      I ask him if he wanted to form a dummy corporation to gather up all that free money into , and a place where we could leave the tax payer liable. He was interested. I think he got the way I intended and not the way James said.

      • Soggy socks on the green with the early fog?
        Hell! Oklahoma beats any state for hail.

        Ya know…if I was a Politician, I would want to choose my Dentist carefully. A Dentist’s office is probably the one place where a Politician might feel the pain of public opinion on his job performance.

        Here is my rendition of a story you told not long ago about the Mayor dining out…

        • Homey we must correct the perceptions here.

          The Ok Governor Stitt is a novice in politics. Anti- Globalism from not knowing how the game is controlled and why his knee jerk reaction of seeing the economy being destroyed locally by The UN WHO. With no real body count to warrant such destruction.

          The Mayor Bynum, is a multi generational local poliloco professional Big Oil Globalism and economic tick of the worst public servant. Deeply entrenched the Rockefeller Foundation in local governance by accepting MULI-MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, Personal enrichment of the local elite few at taxpayer expence. He is connected .
          Hope you got the garden in and good luck with understanding Oklahoma politics. Hell they probably are all going for the money one way or the other.

          MBP I still want to do the experiment.

            • MBP, my friend in Comifornia is simultaneously taking the experiment. He claims “its becoming too painful to watch…
              We are weeks into self-isolation and its is really upsetting me to see Linda [ that’s his wife ] standing at the window clapping at the living room window, just gazing aimlessly into space. Tears running down her cheeks. It breaks my heart to see her like this. I have to cheer her up. I have even considered letting her back in….but the rules are the Rules. Im going to let her directly into the garage if she promises to stop clapping.”

              I will have to check your temperature to see if it was a success. There Now, I will place my hand…lets see, comfy? Now Turn your head and cough.

            • Well, don’t leave us hanging. Did he let her back in?

  8. Excellent James.

    Reserve requirement zero means money multiplier is infinity. Now, it’s not only the fed who can create unlimited amounts of money, Banksters can create all the money they want too.
    Banksters = monopolists will buy all assets, all resources, they will become owners of the world literally.

    I hope some following editions on this topic will expand about another notion.

    Economy wasn’t in good shape, I hope we won’t forget this fact like normies certainly will in the next period of ensured mayhem.
    Economy was pretty much zombie after previous crisis, it was not the question if but when the next crisis will hit.
    But to be clear, all the insane measures as response to plandemia would probably destroy even healthy economy.
    In a way, they hided traces of their involvement even better than in 911 case.

    I’m sure it’s not coincidence we had greta-revolution right before plandemia. Climate paranoia had to be raised to higher level and then…shell game….corona paranoia.
    Not sure many realize importance of what Cory Morningstar put down so eloquently:

    “What is going on – is a rebooting of a stagnant capitalist economy, that needs new markets – new growth – in order to save itself. What is being created is a mechanism to unlock approximately 90 trillion dollars for new investments and infrastructure. What is going on is the creation of, and investment in, perhaps the biggest behavioural change experiment yet attempted, global in scale.”

      • No, that is not what he basically said. Are you trolling me? Watch again!

        Also, the way how the message is delivered is important, isn’t it.

        “The guy is a PTB disciple!”

        So what?!?
        Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

        • No I am not trolling.

          His message was simple. This is what he said:

          “I think we are in the middle of a massive experiment, worldwide, and that is…
          the experiment is, ‘Will people listen to scientists?’
          In this case, referring to medical professionals…
          For example and uh, are you washing your hands and are you taking these precautions, these are warnings offered by scientists, for our own good.
          And it seems to me if we all listened and paid attention and don’t get freaked out, alright, don’t live in fear, a life lived in fear is a life half-lived.

          It would be interesting if we all paid attention to what scientists say, maybe the corona virus will just blow on by, with a minimum of cases and then, ‘we kicked its ass’ for obeying the recommendations of scientists on how to minimize your chances of getting it. It’s an interesting experiment we are in the middle of.”

          Translation for those who could not understand those simple words:
          Listen to the official scientists/politicians/PTB, do what they say and the virus will just blow by.

          The guy is also a hypocrite, because he was sitting less than two meters away from the host of the TV show, not listening to his own advice (of “listening to the scientists”), thus exposing himself to a possible COVID-19 infection.

          • You are funny: “the guy is a hypocrite…”

            Whole covid psyop is full of inconsistencies and you are pointing just to one of them.

            Your translation for dummies consists only of blabber that’s been repeated 24/7, but the point is missed .

            The point is, he publicly stated: People, humanity, you are object of an experiment.

            Unfortunately, today such statement can obviously be funny, what a witticism, haha, we listen and we can’t hear the meaning of words,hahahaha, what is consent, oh, yea that manufactured thing hahaha, because we’ve been listen bs and nonsense for decades, hahaha, and words lost their meaning, hahahaha, oh life is so full of surprises and coincidences…. and…..funny hahaha

            And finnaly, you said he is from establishment, but you can’t get it, that at least maybe, this is not a joke, maybe he said it on purpose.

            It is an experiment, there is no way they could have knew the outcome.

            • mik the guy is a 9/11 falser!
              He is true blue establishment.
              Enough said.

              I would never in a million years drop this guy’s name, let alone on a site like the Corbett Report.

              I wouldn’t give him the time of day!

              “It is an experiment, there is no way they could have knew the outcome.”

              So your theory is TPTB relased this bio-weapon on the masses as a huge experiment, not knowing the outcome, because they had nothing better to do?

              • Find somebody else for your hollow thinking and for putting your words to his mouth.

    • Forgot to mention another “coincidence”.

      Before greta-event they turned on afterburner in vaccine propaganda.

  9. Regarding solutions I agree with James. There is no other way….or join the Hive.

    They can’t win unless we give up.

  10. I haven’t had time to watch this yet, but I am looking forward to it. I am not well versed in economics or investing. Does anyone have any simple advice for trying to prevent going broke during this time? How can we protect our assets if we have US dollar cash savings and 401Ks? I will do some research on my own as well. I don’t live in a part of the US that has freedom cells or other like-minded communities.

    • Just to help get you started. Diversification is key.

      Think about precious metals (actual metal in hand, not paper). Possibly you can invest in some paper gold as well, but invest only what you can stand to lose. Gold will never go to zero, while paper will, at some point in time.

      Having some cash in hand in various currencies is always a decent hedge.

      Real estate is another option, with a caveat. Since the market is in a bubble, prices are steep. Presumably, post crash you stand to get a lot more for an ounce than you’d get prior.

      • I assumed we were talking about having a bad time, not going back to zero. If we’re discussing apocalypse, then probably the best option is to liquidate everything you have, get a bit of land somewhere remote, start a farm and hopefully gather a few like-minded people. And get guns and plenty of bullets. Or, alternatively, get guns and a bullet press, gunpowder, bullet casings (these can be reused, so do pick them up) and an assuring amount of lead.

        Even though, in all reality, foregoing any game hunting, you would probably ever need only about half a dozen bullets.

    • I’m in CA, people are “social distancing” it’s hard to make a friend these days. Some of my closest friends are even staying away, especially because I work in a hospital.

      • @cu.h.j

        “work in a hospital.”

        Your profession will be valuable for people outside future Hive. More people will be left outside future system than you can imagine.

        Don’t believe, let George Carling explain

    • CU.h.j

      I think other Corbett Members have some great points!
      In the end, it will be you who decides what is best for you.

      For now, I would hold onto your cash.
      Gain a better perception and then with more data, delegate how you want to file it.

      I closed out my 401K at the end of 2019 with the “early withdrawal penalty hit”, because I knew we were in a huge mega-bubble.
      Most 401-k’s have lost a lot of value. You might want to look at moving it to an IRA.
      I suspect that we will see many companies’ stock prices continue to drop over the coming year.

      Physical gold and silver are now in short supply, and so people are on a waiting list with lag time to receive purchases. Now, the premiums (fees above spot price) are high.

      If you like to gamble, you may want to consider some gold/silver mining stocks.
      Currently, there are some great values in my opinion. With the market sell-off, these stocks also went down as investors sold their stocks to meet leveraged margin calls.

      I like mines which are in safe jurisdictions (not ones in which the government will grab or will close it down…and some have been closed down in different countries recently). In other words, be cautious about which gold/silver mining stocks you buy.

      The precious metal “mining and streaming companies” have remained somewhat stable.
      They make the highest profits per employee of just about any investment sector.
      Franco Nevada (FNV) is one of the largest. Some others are Sandstorm Gold Ltd. (SAND), Metalla Royalty & Streaming Ltd. (MTA)… Wheaton, Royal, Osisko, and more.

      But look…don’t take my words as good financial advice.
      I am lousy at handling money.

      Here is a link to some of the YouTube Channels which talk about Gold and Silver.

  11. You are right. I agree.

    For the time being, “officially” inflation is not a problem.

    But once we start seeing price increases, those price increases could snowball.
    It is worth noting how the media denigrates “price gouging” under these current situations.

    Eventually…we could certainly see it.
    It may take awhile. As yet, we don’t know.

    We are in unchartered waters. There is no telling what storms will be coming in the months and years ahead. But it don’t look rosie.

  12. Yes, manbearpig it is the new newspeak lexicon. We have all those terms where I live, our city is under a “shelter

    in place” we are advised to “self-isolate” and maintain “social distancing” when leaving the house for “essential”

    reasons to “flatten the curve”. We are told to “go home”. This insanity is now pervasive. I would have never

    guessed something like this happening in the US. It’s a wake-up call though for me that I can’t just check out. I

    I just don’t know what I can do on a practical level since protesting is not allowed. People are so brainwashed it’s


  13. I think that the Digital Dollar will be backed by the Digital I.D. which will be backed by the Digital U.S. Government which will be backed by the International Global Union of Technocratic Psychopaths.

    Now, I can sleep at night.

  14. Money, its value and usefulness is foremost a matter of trust and belief.
    Trust and belief are partly from irrational domain, so looking for pure rational answers could be in vain, particularly in this day and age.

  15. The best I’ve found site that collects data and publishes daily updates with links on the Coronavirus outbreak is: https://swprs.org/a-swiss-doctor-on-covid-19/

    Here are some great links too:
    As of 19 March 2020, COVID-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious disease (HCID) in the UK.

    A new French study in the Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, titled SARS-CoV-2: fear versus data, concludes that “the problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably overestimated“, since “the mortality rate for SARS-CoV-2 is not significantly different from that for common coronaviruses identified at the study hospital in France“.

    An Italian study of August 2019 found that flu deaths in Italy were between 7,000 and 25,000 in recent years. This value is higher than in most other European countries due to the large elderly population in Italy, and much higher than anything attributed to Covid-19 so far.

    In a new fact sheet, the World Health Organization WHO reports that Covid-19 is in fact spreading slower, not faster, than influenza by a factor of about 50%. Moreover, pre-symptomatic transmission appears to be much lower with Covid-19 than with influenza.

    A leading Italian doctor reports that “strange cases of pneumonia“ were seen in the Lombardy region already in November 2019, raising again the question if they were caused by the new virus (which officially only appeared in Italy in February 2020), or by other factors, such as the dangerously high smog levels in Northern Italy.

    Danish researcher Peter Gøtzsche, founder of the renowned Cochrane Medical Collaboration, writes that Corona is “an epidemic of mass panic“ and “logic was one of the first victims.“

    Former Israeli Health Minister, Professor Yoram Lass, says that the new coronavirus is “less dangerous than the flu“ and lockdown measures “will kill more people than the virus“. He adds that “the numbers do not match the panic“ and “psychology is prevailing over science“. He also notes that “Italy is known for its enormous morbidity in respiratory problems, more than three times any other European country.“

    Pietro Vernazza, a Swiss infectious disease specialist, argues that many of the imposed measures are not based on science and should be reversed. According to Vernazza, mass testing makes no sense because 90% of the population will see no symptoms, and lockdowns and closing schools are even “counterproductive“. He recommends protecting only risk groups while keeping the economy and society at large undisturbed.

    The President of the World Doctors Federation, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, argues that lockdown measures as in Italy are “unreasonable“ and “counterproductive“ and should be reversed.

    Switzerland: Despite media panic, excess mortality still at or near zero: the latest test-positive “victims“ were a 96 year old in palliative care and a 97 year old with pre-existing conditions.

    • thank you glasia I appreciate the links.

    • Damn good work glasia!

      • via glasia’s post

        Simply put, anyone showing you exponential charts of the number of test-positive people and deaths is deceiving you (or has been deceived themselves).
        Only those asking the real questions are to be trusted in the current situation.
        And there are not many of them.

        The Real Questions

        • “Judge a man by his questions rather than by his answers”


    • The comparison between Covid-19 and the common flu is a strange phenomenon.

      For various reasons I traveled down the vaccine rabbit hole a few years ago and became intimate with that psyops. The flu vaccine is THE moneymaker and also the canary in the gold mine (outside of the CDC scheduled children’s vaccines, which is a whole other rabbit hole). So it’s not at all surprising that the magical fairy of pretend math-and-stuff expertly blessed the CDC’s flu illness and death statistics. Here’s just a quick summary:

      Despite “flu emergencies” “flu outbreaks” “flu pandemics” claims, studies show these people are not dying of flu. They’re already immune-compromised from other illnesses or treating w/ chemo or are dying from complications of pneumonia.

      December of 2005, the British Medical Journal published a shocking report by Peter Doshi (post-doctorate Johns Hopkins Fellow with MIT PhD) challenging “Are US flu death figures more PR than science?” (BMJ 2005; 331:1412): CDC has created one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths. Why do they do this? Because they disingenuously suggest that the pneumonia deaths are complications from the flu but pneumonia has a number of causes.

      And despite broadly promoting that 36,000 deaths from flu in 2001, only 18 revealed the presence of an influenza virus. Doshi continued his assessment of published CDC flu-death statistics: “Between 1979 and 2001, [CDC] data show an average of 1348 [flu] deaths per year (range 257 to 3006).” These figures refer to flu separated out from pneumonia. In 2001 the CDC broadly claimed 36,000 deaths from flu, “‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001; 61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu positively identified.”

      There are over 200 different types of viruses in addition to influenza that cause flu-like symptoms. According to the NYC Influenza Surveillance Report, ONLY 16% OF SPECIMENS SUBMITTED WERE POSITIVE FOR INFLUENZA A OR B BUT MOST PEOPLE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR FLU ARE NOT CULTURED (my emphasis). A 2014 meta-analysis of 90 influenza studies showed that only 2.4% of people developed laboratory-confirmed influenza.

      The system gets away with this marketing ploy because most people seeking treatment for flu are not even cultured. MDs simply proclaim, record and report illness as flu.

      Other studies have shown only 7-16% of what is labeled as “flu” by the medical industry and media—is actually flu. MOST of the wintertime illnesses are upper respiratory infections, which will be entirely unaffected by the flu vaccine. Studies have shown the flu vaccine is only 33% effective on average, so this means the vaccine is only 33% effective for the 7-16% who are actually contracting the flu, or in other words, at best the flu vaccine is helping only 5% of the population.

      A Johns Hopkins scientist evaluated the 2011 “flu epidemic” that the CDC was claiming caused the death of 60,000 people but the study showed there were only 18 confirmed deaths from flu that year. That’s .0003%

  16. I spent the day doing a talk for my music channel called:

    The Living Room Sessions Ep.1 ~ The Revelation & Corona Virus
    An Address to The American People and The People of Planet Earth

    In this episode I discuss the end game agenda that is unfolding at this moment using the corona virus “pandemic” as a hegelian event to complete the mystery babylon – new world order agenda and how all of this is symbolically spoken of in the bible. This is not a religious reading of the bible but is a historical and spiritual reading in the search for truth in these times.

    This is a call to the America people and to all people of planet earth to awaken so as to gain the knowledge of this present situation so as to effect a healing and advert the coming technocratic slave system that is being erected around us at this very moment using the cover, false panic and fear of the corona virus “pandemic.”


    I hope you all enjoy it and if so to please pass it along!

    • You are welcome and thank you Alexandre for taking the time to listen to it, I appreciate it!

      As far as I am concerned mythology is nothing but history that has become “forgotten.” As Tolkien writes, “And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years, the [the true story of the fallen angels] passed out of all knowledge.” …or whatever fits in the brackets from ancient times.

      I love Jazz – it is my favorite music. Jazz is the highest form of harmonic and rhythmic expression. But to me music is one whole thing, it is all the same thing and it is the roots of existence.

      I really feel that music has something to do with our growth as human beings – it puts us in touch with the deeper parts of ourselves. Our heart and so forth it engages the the whole being and brings us back to balance. And when you hear stories of those kids who have perfect pitch or learned it from a young age going on later in life and doing double doctorates and so forth. Man, that says something.

      I think all children should be taught the language of music like Rick Beato has done for his son Dylan. It is the universal and original language of creation.


      Here is a cover of Nardis that I did:

      and this is an improv that has a Pat Metheny quote in it:

      On the other hand music can be used to deceive and teach wrong things as well. See madonna, britney spears, jayz who says “we rockafellar” and so on so there is the lie being promoted as well with it.

      “the truth is one, the sages speak of it by many names.”

      That is so true and it takes a wholistic thinking, a 3rd dimensional thinking to see that. Where as the elites like to program people into their left brains and keep them trapped in 2 dimensional thinking which keeps them stuck in the manipulated dialectic.

      To really understand what mythology is and to see it one needs to develop symbolic literacy which is a right brained trait. To regain our minds functioning on a wholistic level is real next step in our “evolution” or the returning to ourselves and music has a part to play in that for sure!!!

      “…the singers and players of instruments shall be there, all My springs are in thee” – Psalm 87

      take care and till next time…

      • I’ve read your exchange with alex. I’m not musician nor inclined much towards spirituality, still both are present in my life, music more.

        I think music is devoid of truth or lie. By music I mean instruments and voices, but no lyrics. Lyrics can introduce lie or truth to music, music goes straight to emotions.

        Once I’ve listened almost only high energy, noisy, dissonant, syncopated music. Well, not much recently, mostly I don’t like the mood such music excites.

        A lecture about music (and more) that really impressed me

          I will give it a watch…

          There is alot of good info on music on youtube one could just skip going to a university and learn from all of the great musicians sharing knowledge there.

      • Thanks Alexandre! Really good playing my brother!

        I can hear the Wes influence coming through in your playing.

        Jazz is a testament to the intelligence of African people to say the least and for sure at its roots it is an African–American art form.

        My favorite guitar player is Pat Metheny, he really has taken the instrument to a melodic form of playing that few guitarist have achieved.

        Freddie Hubbard is one of my favorite trumpet players, he is such a clean articulate player.

        Bill Evans on piano is just fantastic.

        Miles Davis’s airy sound and tone; his innovation over the years.

        Just to name a few…

        Each player has these qualities that no other player has and when you hear them – you know it is them.

        Jazz is medicine! It puts me in this place where I stop thinking because I have to pay attention and listen to what is going on.

        It is the heights of music and that came from African people. Jazz in itself proves all of the racist bullshit spread about black people just flat out wrong! …and little do those detractors know of Timbuktu!

        • Racism is something that you grow up with in america. It was and is always under the surface. I grew up in a european american family being mainly italian, english, and cherokee(which came from my mother’s side)

          Racism was something I tried to make sense of from an early age because I grew up with African people in school. In Europe it is different – I heard all of the stories of Jazz musicians going over to Europe and being treated with respect – a completely different experience for them in comparison to america.

          It is a subject in america that has never really been addressed properly and with the “black lives matter” psy-op george soros has even muddied the waters on the subject even more.

          So it is a subject that is very important to me and that I have spent alot of my time sus-ing out in my younger years. It has even brought me close to physical fights at times because of confronting racist whites, but racism is on both sides of fence – blacks have it too over here.

          With the obama thing over here – I think alot of people voted for him just because he was black – which is a tell of racism still lurking in the subconscious – without any regards to who he is and serves.

          Martin Luther King put it right -“I long for the day that people can be known for the content of their character rather than the color of their skin” — roughly quoting.

        • I do know Black Elk – I have the book Black Elk Speaks sitting about 3 feet from me right now. I got it out of my chest a few weeks ago when I went looking for my book of Haile Selassie speeches.

  17. Masks are interesting story. I’ve heard reports about authorities confiscating masks on border, because they were not certified.

    Mask is really high tech and we need protection against mask production quackery…bullshit.

    Mask is so low tech and so easy to produce I see no reason to be in so short supply.

    The problem is medical certification. God forbid to lax certification in this dire situation, for example.
    On the other hand CDC laxed rules on use of masks. Perfectly logical, no need to think, it’s from government.

    Zero Hedge
    “There’s No Gold” – COMEX Report Exposes Conditions Behind Physical Crunch

    …While the demand for gold has been soaring as a safe haven asset amid the multiple global crises we are currently facing, forced paper gold liquidation (as leveraged funds scramble to cover margin calls) and unprecedented logistical disruptions created a frantic hunt for actual bars of gold…
    (see the Bloomberg details in article)

    …There’s no gold. There’s roughly a 10% premium to purchase physical gold for delivery. Usually it’s like 2%. I can buy a one ounce American Eagle for $1,800,” said Josh Strauss. “$1,800!”…

    …And in case you doubted this, the cost of an American Eagle one ounce coin at the US Mint is now $2,175…

    …In fact, I have not seen a single news site in the entire world, except for my own, mention the relentless increase in initial and maintenance margins in gold and silver futures contracts (the 100-oz gold futures contract and the 5000-oz silver futures contract) for the past two months, in a desperate attempt to knock long positions out of the game and thereby prevent an increasing amount of physical delivery requests…
    …but the fact that even this reliable manipulation mechanism failed recently is a sign of additional tectonic earthquakes to come in the global financial system…

    …there has been a massive price decoupling between physical and paper gold prices….

  24. That probably depends on the video format. If that’s a Penitum 4 that you’re using, I wager the software is not up to date.

    For instance, the latest verions of browsers available on Windows XP won’t play many of the modern video formats available on today’s platforms. Many video posts don’t contain any files in backward compatible video formats.

    • These are quite large sites and formats used could depend on a variety of factors. Like current site usage, resolution, level of detail and possibly there could be difference in how different customers are treated. I’m not sure whether bitchute provides details on the video format used for videos individually.

  25. News coming from Spain. I don’t know if you remember that in a recent New World Next Week, “Jameses” showed an article talking about a geolocation study in Spain, which took place in November/December. I send you a link in the case that you don’t remember: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-50473442.

    Well, surprise surprise, yesterday Spain approved an “Order” where it states:

    Entrust the Secretary of State for Digitization and Artificial Intelligence, of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, following the model undertaken by the National Institute of Statistics in its study of mobility and through the crossing of data from mobile operators [NOTE: the study shown above], in an aggregate manner and anonymized, the analysis of the mobility of people in the previous days and during confinement.

    How convenient, right? There are some mesures taken by Spain which makes me think that: 1) they knew what was going to happen (or that something was going to happen) or 2) that some organizations higher than Spanish government knew that, and they were the ones who directed Spanish institutions to carry out these measures (like the digitalization of education).

    For those how know Spanish or have a good translator, here is the PDF of the “Order”: http://www.boe.es/boe/dias/2020/03/28/pdfs/BOE-A-2020-4162.pdf

    • – geolocation ! –
      Thanks for keeping us updated Haros.

      • You are welcome! I hope to be contributing in some way to this community.

    • This is being discussed in the parliament over here as well.

      I did run into a coherent article criticizing this move, of course it will go largely unnoticed. But some decent points were made.

      – health wise, this is a lousy move because it will merely enable prosecution instead of enabling better health and safety
      – it’s also extremely easy to ditch this form of surveillance since you can simply leave the phone somewhere
      – there is really no proof that you are the who was using the phone at the and place the surveillance has been gathered

      The first impression of the scare is apparently running a bit thin so some members of the media are beginning to ask the most obvious questions. It was quite painful to list to about an hour of TV propaganda, it is true what they say, if you repeat the same thing over and over again it will become the truth.

      Even the president is starting to put on a TV show and call out these authoritarian methods. The minister of interiors is basically calling all the shots, but of course he’s just a puppet of the PM who’s of course just a pupped of the EU.

      The president concluded that these “decisions” need to be brought by the parliament in a two third majority. The minister responded that there is no time, because they need to decide daily while the parliament does not meet every day. I shit you not, this is he said, may I get stricken down by Covid-19 if I’m lying.

      When someone said that they are basically limiting human rights with these measures, the minister said that they are not limiting human rights, they are just imposing repression over everyone and they need to continue doing so. He didn’t even invoke the emergency argument and didn’t need to, people are lapping up this bullshit like there’s no tomorrow.

    • Other than that, we have 6 official covid-19 related deaths as of today.

      The first elderly gentleman who died (70), they spent some time ruminating about the cause of death and it was in the end decided that his death should be chalked up to covid-19. According to his family there was gross misconduct because it took several days for him to even get hospitalized and tested. Later “officials” claimed the man refused hospitalization and they went on to confirm he was the first “victim” of covid-19 even before they had test results. Later apparently there was something wrong with the sample, so they removed the man from statistics. Later he was reinstated, I don’t see any further mention of misconduct. It’s a crisis, after all.

      The second man who died, was 74 years young and had cancer. He was apparently in critical condition and on respirator. I can’t find his name nor any details of his condition, but initially the reports said he was a patient on oncology. It appears they got smart after the first case not to give any details out.

      Then a woman of 65 died, also a cancer patient. She didn’t have any Covid-19 related symptoms. They tested her about one hour before she passed away. I’m pretty sure the media are lying on that, my gut feeling says that they tested her postmortem. Still, only the first deceased name is known. One of these sources mentioned that the second “victim” was also an oncology patient.

      Then a 92 year old (I shit you not) woman perished. She had “significant comorbidity”, but still chalked up to covid-19. Most of these news reports are just providing a single or maximum two sentences and are basically all copying the same source.

      Then a “middle aged man” died (actually 60), reportedly he suffered from hypertension. He apparently died on a respirator with a pulmonary inflammation and was otherwise healthy.

      The last to have died, sixth, was an 84 year old man who was in critical condition after a stroke. Probably less said the better.

      All of this makes me think that the actual covid-19 death rate is at least three times lower than reported and for that I have to shut off my brain and assume that only this virus can cause pulmonary failure.

      • mkey, where are you from? Just to know what is the country where all these measures are being implemented.

        I did run into a coherent article criticizing this move […]
        You are absolutely right. I guess that they are just doing a big scale experiment and they don’t care about “outliers” -people who might be turning their phones off, leaving it a home and so on-. If this is not the case, I am not sure why are they doing this surveillance. Maybe a psy-op to make citizens feel absolutely powerless? Because I am sure that most of the people who has read this document are thinking: how am I going to live without my phone?

        The minister responded that there is no time, because they need to decide daily while the parliament does not meet every day.
        They are playing with this. They say, for example, “we can’t research if the virus is producing the disease because maybe it is too late”. It is exactly the same reason why doctors prescribe antibiotics without doing an antibiogram (or at least before knowing the results).

        Ah, the stories behind the cases… I recommend you to read this letter if you haven’t: https://swprs.org/open-letter-from-professor-sucharit-bhakdi-to-german-chancellor-dr-angela-merkel/

        Taking into account that he is writing from a medical mainstream perspective (the one that I have at this moment, although doubting more and more everyday), I think he has done a great job in this letter. Even if he wouldn’t have been written it, the letter would be still formulating extremely important questions that NEED to be answered for governments and science.

        • I have spawned in what has later become known as, according to many metrics, the worse EU nation state, the failing psycho-social experiment in rejecting personal responsibility at the expense of living in the past, well into our middle ages while abundant corruption causes as much damage as we are willing to bare. And, oh boy, are we willing. The name of the shame is Croatia, the last bastion of post communist era idiots and thieves. Not that there aren’t any classic communists left in Europe, it’s just that they are not as nearly blatantly stupid, ill mannered, greedy beyond all measure. A band of rabid raccoons would do a better job at keeping this land afloat.

          The “economy” was weak as it was two weeks ago, now it spiraling down into the abyss of possible rife hunger and inability to heat one’s home appropriately during the winter months. The whole shebang was running on deficits for decades now, tourism somehow managing to pick up the tab. Not this year, most probably not the next year, either. And that’s assuming this thing starts blowing over tomorrow.

          People have already been denied the right to assemble and protest; free speech rights long gone and forgotten (most don’t have much to say anyhow, so I’m not sure how sizable a loss that is in practical terms); right to travel abrogated and predicated on having “permits”, We are basically not allowed (actual police checkpoints are all over the place; they kept clamoring how there isn’t sufficient cops up an about, but somehow pulling triple shifts is a nonissue now) to leave our place of residence, which for people in more rural areas (that are aplenty) spells like “tough luck”.

          I have not one but to permits to go to work to the larger city close by so I can run small errands along the way. They started pronouncing that a new permit system is under way, because this one is way too lenient.

          I have to wonder what’s the endgame here and knowing what I about this ruling scum, they only thing they care about is winning the election, which is to be held mid September. That means, they either end this lunacy soon, face the absolute shambles of the coming summer and then lose the election as low IQ voter forget about how covid-19 is to take the blame for everything that has been done badly for the past 30 years. OR they keep the smoke and mirrors show for months, claiming how they saved the people and defeated this Satan’s spawn (probably sent by the Serbs to destroy us) and ride this wave into a resounding election victory. It’s stupid and crazy enough to work.

          You may have noticed I’m a bit ticked off, but that’s my own fault, a present for actually believing people are not stupid enough to fall for a ploy as ridiculous as the whole covid-19 mass conspiracy.

          • Taking into account how you express yourself in English (if I can judge taking into account that my skills in this language are far to be perfect) I would say that you are a London native!

            In Spain we don’t hear very much about your country, as I guess that news in your country don’t mention Spain often. The closest thing to Croatia that we can hear are the names of Rakitic and Modric.

            I could say the same about Spanish metrics. Just take a look at the unemployment rate in this country, which is the second higher in Europe, just after Greece! Not that I care very much about these metrics, taking into account that they just reflect the broken economic system we live in. But the corruption here is just extraordinary too. The favorite Spanish sentence in politics is: “your party steals more money than mine” (not with these words, but almost).

            What you are describing is just awful. I don’t know if I can foresee hunger in Spain but the economy is being destroyed. I don’t know if you saw that I posted yesterday a news article about the last Spanish mesures to fight against… against what? I don’t know it yet. Summing up: Spanish economy entered in a state of hibernation. I think, for what you describe, that Croatian is in the same situation.

            All the mesures you are talking about are mostly the same here, so I guess that we are feeling the same about all these totalitarian situation. Not even when Franco (dictator) was in power Spanish people saw something like this (according to what my father has told me).

            new permit system is under way
            What would imply this new permit? I ask you this because we have to download a form in the Government website stating why we need to get out of home. As an example: I have to download a paper saying that I have to go to the supermaket to buy food. It should be obvious that I have to buy, right? Not for the police: they need the paper (another psychological tactic, since you don’t have to present any document to get the permit).

            You may have noticed I’m a bit ticked off, but that’s my own fault, a present for actually believing people are not stupid enough to fall for a ploy as ridiculous as the whole covid-19 mass conspiracy.

            Don’t worry because it is normal to feel in that way. I am thinking about learning Russian and go to a remote area in Siberia, where the only things that could chase me are bears… and drones. Fortunately, not humans (or not many, at least).

            By the way, I received an hour ago a video about what to do for not getting infected: wash your hands, social distancing and so on. Obviously it was an animated video for retarded people. I have been about to block this person.

            Talking about retarded people (I feel bad calling someone “retarded” but this is what they are demonstrating): now it is trendy to take photographs of yourself wearing a mask and upload them on antisocial networks. Doesn’t matter if you are at home or not.

              • This is really a classic, isn’t it? Generations upon generations of narcissistic uneducated fools that think they are going to live forever. What could go wrong?

            • In these parts likes of Spain, Greece and Italy are mostly in the news when there is something negative or seemingly negative to report. In all of these countries the failing economy is the unrelenting result of “social” policies where so many people have clawed on to the government teat that there’s practically no teat left, it’s just claws.

              I’m not envisioning mass starvation here, but currently about a quarter of the population live below the poverty line. All said and done, that line will have to go higher, leaving more people in a sad disposition. The “social” state manages to keep everything afloat, buying “social” peace, but when the spice stops flowing these government programs will run dry. In these quasi third world countries the most significant investors are emigrants, sending cash to family who was left behind. The mid term situation will vastly depend on these funds.

              The “new” permits they referred to involve an “official” supervising your right to work (I guess these people feel entitled to deliberate on whether or not your work is essential or if it can indeed be performed from home; my certainly can, but I’d sooner contract 5 infections than have these people order me about) and then issue a digital document (among the common folk known as PDF) to grant you the divine right for labor. I’m not sure if that is going to go forward, the minister is issuing various threats hand over fist, I dare not presume anything after the initial assessments made by me left me baffled over the entire sad situation.

              As far as the police on these checkpoints go, it’s my general feeling that they don’t take any of this that serious. They could be assholes about it, but they aren’t. That means something. And there is a certain level of leniency (“oh yes, go ahead, I remember you from this morning” and the likes).

              I totally get you about the remote areas, maybe Siberia wouldn’t be my first option, I bet Spain has quite a few remote areas of its own where people could go by while being mostly unmolested.

              Instruction were issued over here as well. Somewhere along the lines of “when you get home take off your shoes and wash your hands (????)”. Gems also include such advice as “sneeze in your elbow” and “keep your living space clean”. Yes, because I usually defecate right in the middle of my living room and wash my feet at the same time with the lettuce to save on water. Thanks for treating me like a damn idiot, state, thanks a lot.

              • It is funny that you wrote this sentence: “where so many people have clawed on to the government teat that there’s practically no teat left, it’s just claws” because everytime I hear about universal basic income in a Corbett video (or anywhere else) I think that the Spanish government won’t need to spend a single euro on propaganda to convice population. I am sure that 99% of Spanish citizens would applaud on balconies for a year to welcome this measure.

                Thank you very much for explaining me so well the situation in your country.

                I have to say that I haven’t seen much of what is happening on Spanish roads (checkpoints, how is Police behaving, etc.) because I have worked in the digital world for a few years, so I haven’t had a “good” reason to drive somewhere. What media is saying is that police fined 3700 people this weekend for leaving their first residence to go to their second one, but of course who know if this is true. Media is pushing citizens one to another so we can’t trust anything.

                At this moment I am wondering if the lockdown will be extended in Spain, because reported cases are not getting lower (today it’s possible that it will reach a maximum), and I am curious to see how people would react to this possible measure. It has been already 17 days since the beggining, so you can understand who I feel.

                Well, I would prefer a more calid country, for sure. The thing about Russia is that it is so vast that you can go anywhere. Spain is not a little country but we are locked, since it is a peninsula, so if things get worse in the future (for example, mandatory vaccinations for traveling), there is not an easy escape. Maybe I am exaggerating a little but in Spain we have this saying: “Piensa mal y acertarás” (=think wrong and be right).

                In Spain there is a “hippie-like” community in Grananda and I would love to ask them how police have been treating them, because it would be revealing.

              • MBP, “piensa mal y acertarás” would be more like “if you have the feeling that something is not what it seems, think the worst possibility and you will be right”.

                It is a pessimistic point of view, to be honest, but it is a very common Spanish expression.

                I am not a survival skilled person either. In fact, unless my animal instinct would wake up, I wouldn’t last for a month in wildlife, unless I would rely on others. All this conspiravirus situation has taught me that I have to focus in the next months on becoming absolutely self-independant to feel free. Doesn’t matter if end up living in a community, but at least I would always have the possibility of living anywhere.

                I hope you never have to leave your people behind because of our totalitarian governments. It must be so hard… On the other hand, it happens all the time in other countries, but we are not so aware of it. I don’t have children, but I feel extremely sad when I think about having to go far from my family.

                Alicante sounds nice, although I have never been there. Only in Valencia, which is near of it.

              • I believe the forced vaccinations will be a part of the “good dog, good boy” system. Vast majority don’t have anything against vaccines, many others will be motivated by making “free” services predicated on jumping through hoops.

  26. If you have a problem playing videos – you can download them and if you can play mp4’s locally you will be fine.

    Just go to tubeninja and put the link in the bar there:

    I recommend downloading everything so to have a local copy to share if and when the net goes down.

    Also for those of you who would like to get off of windows and mac.

    The linux operating system has come a long way towards being user friendly at this point in time. Particularly the Linux Mint distribution:

    You can create a dual boot system so you can use both os’s until you learn the linux os and make the switch. I refused to upgrade my xp to any of the new windows and when all support stopped for it the end of 2018 I switched to Mint and it was so easy because it is very user friendly. And it is free open source software and from my understanding doesn’t have the back doors that windows and mac have in them. It runs better and doesn’t get cluttered like a windows os does, no viruses and so forth…

    Here is talk that Richard Stallman has done on linux/GNU if anyone is interested called Free software, free society:


    • mkey, when I went through Corbett’s recommended videos (for members only, as you know) under his IF editorial yesterday, I came across this one with a hat tip to you. Then, as I started watching it, I did a double flip with delight: John Titus!!! He’s baaaaack!!!

      You see, when Corbett introduced us to Titus a couple years ago, I’d gotten hooked and had watched all four (or was it five?) videos he issued in 2018, I think it was. Then he disappeared. I’d check his channel week after week, only to find . . . nothing new. Every time I felt so disappointed — til I finally gave up looking.

      John’s the best at deciphering and explaining arcane economic data and events, isn’t he! And his dry wit is charming.

      Anyway, just wanted you to know how MUCH I appreciate your having mentioned that video here (I’ve been catching up on comments in this thread, as you can see). Now I’ll be going to Titus’s “Best Evidence” YouTube channel regularly to see if he has uploaded his next “fact-based conspiracy claptrap.” As you say, he left us dangling on a cliff . . . .

      • From what I gathered, an ilness caused the hiatus. He planned to put out new videos on a more regular basis, the idea was to have shorter videos out more often, but maybe he’s not up to spec.

  31. Hi James. I would like to see some information ASAP about the holders of the shorts on the various stocks that have tanked because of this Event 201 plan. This has been engineered like 911,Greece and the various financial disasters and as your follow the trillions 911 video, somebody is cashing in.

  32. Hello Fellow Subscribers,

    I am an avid follower of The Corbett Report, but rarely leave comments. About a year ago, I subscribed to BestEvidence on YouTube. He has had health problems and hasn’t posted much recently but today he posted this which I thought might be significant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAbXuJ2tK90
    Check it out.
    All the best,

    • Haha I just saw that James put that link at the end of his latest post.

      • And you saw, too, RobinHood77, that James gave the “h/t” to mkey, who barely beat you to the punch in mentioning the Titus video (see a few posts above yours).

        Thanks for sharing the link, though–just in case mkey hadn’t already done the honors.

        As you saw in my above reply to mkey, I’m a huge fan of Titus. In fact, during a phone call with a fellow Corbett member this afternoon–I mean yesterday afternoon–I screamed “John Titus” into the phone, probably blasting my friend’s ear off, when he asked me if I’d watched the new Fed video by “that guy from Chicago.”

  33. More news from Spain, and this is very important for the economy of the country. First, take into account that the unemployment rate in this country is 13,7% as of January 2020 (nowadays has likely skyrocketed). Also that in July 2013 it was as high as an staggering 26.3%. In the case that you want to take a look to our data: https://datosmacro.expansion.com/paro/espana?sc=LAB-

    The news: https://elpais.com/espana/2020-03-29/el-gobierno-ordena-la-hibernacion-de-la-economia-para-evitar-el-colapso-del-sistema-sanitario.html

    The Government orders the “hibernation” of the economy to avoid the collapse of the health system.

    Excerpt 1
    The Government orders to almost completely stop the Spanish production system, which will continue only in the essential sectors and in those where they can maintain teleworking, because it wants to save time to avoid the collapse of the health system that may come if contagions continue to increase at the current rate.

    Excerpt 2
    “We will take measures so that when all this happens we can resurrect and rebuild our production model.”

    Both are in the first paragraph of the news, but I think that it shows the most important of it. I have highlighted the second part because of this “rebuild” word. I just have a feeling that most of what Corbett has been saying about the new economy and the “new normal” will materialize very soon on Spain.

    Meanwhile, of course, people keep applauding very happy all these measures. I have given up on reading people’s comments on news because I lose faith in human beings (lucky for me, it exists CorbettReport and its users -and one friend of mine which questions everything-)

  34. About 7 to 10 years ago a shift happened here (small colourful enclave of natural resource people, back-to-the-landers, food hubs, farmers markets) when local government and small electronically connected businesses in the broader community seemed to get ‘infected’ by gov propaganda and to the fullest recycled its deployment principles of propaganda mantras and emotional weaponry to crowd steer their own power/profit agendas. Of particular interest was the outwardly strong promotion of social ideals that fully capitalized on the larger community’s emotions, resistance towards bureaucratic power centralization, and authoritarian dictates. Inwardly they rapidly enlisted business ‘collaborators’ attracted by the success of the PSY strategies, which was easily measurable by positive community response for the heavily advertised -as ethically superior -standards screen. Who doesn’t like to steer a crowd in motion? Scratching the thin surface, a palpable incongruence emerged for who cared to look closer, but it worked – nearly every public program and business was soon delivered through this same lens with, vivid and loud celebrations of the collective whole, claiming ‘social license’ (a new way of saying “no, we don’t need a vote on this”) which thus ensured that social ‘guilting’ carried social punishment for freedom of speech. This disapproval has now changed to hatred and words like “racist”, “xyz denier” and as of late “murdering my grandmother”.

    What is in the large is in the small.
    I speculate that the top-down crowd steering has been so successful because the power tools are so easily recognized and used by any individual, either by mimicry or understood mechanics, right down to the smallest of communities. Happily carrying the poison back to their nests. Indications are universal power mantras such as “the New Normal and Social License” which have been used for a wide assortment of business objectives, broadly PSY-fogging people into ‘collaboration’ and abandonment of their values, rights and beliefs and adoption of fear in the face of the unknown, which apparently never existed before (“in these unprecedented times”, “global uncertainty”, “environmental apocalypse”, “new measures”, “collapse”….). A brand new, hefty shackle was applied to the ‘collective whole’ mantra with the amazing global roll-out of the world pandemic which shattered the fabric of individuality even across national borders and forcefully drowned any remaining bravery of freedom of speech, now facing shame on a world scale. Who in their right mind can stand up to that? We found ourselves standing in a crowd on a sunny day, every 10th person holding a mirror, blinding their surrounding peers while questioning: “whose skin is blemished?” And dumbfounded, panic-struck and blinded everyone pulls out their own mirror to disappear in the glare safely. Human choices are driven by fear and avoidance of pain, rather than by projection of gain and rationale – or so the experts tell us.

    There may be a weak link in this PSY that is used to destroy society as we know it. A strategy that is so effective and simple that it is easily applied from top to bottom to market one brand should be just as effective a tool to rebrand the message and feed it bottom-up.

        • You often do the same.
          Many veteran Corbett Members do.
          It is a great community here.

          Corbett has been working his ass off.
          He has been pumping out all kinds of stuff.

          Also, I can tell his daily routines have changed on “timing”.

          We are lucky that he developed this community.
          It sure comes in handy now.

  36. Superb and timely work as always James. I’ve been a subscriber for years and this video, and so many others are the reason why.

    I’ll pass this along to as many as I know. Fortunately I live in Oz. We live on an island with an isolationist ideology (if you dismiss the cretinous actions of the Labor & Green parties) and that has protected us very well in the past. 95%+ of the population live within 100 miles of the coast. I live much further away.

    The cities will self-destruct eventually like some dystopian nightmare from Judge Dredd. It’s been happening for years.

    Keep up the great work while you can.

  37. James,

    Thank you so much for the time and patience that you have put into the all your videos and articles. It is greatly appreciated.

    Two questions I would like to ask as apart of your solutions series that you recently put a link to.

    Would you ever start an indoor farm and have you seen solutions for successfully starting one?

    Even if it is just for the consumption of your own friends and family.
    Not everyone has a backyard that they can use.
    (see link below)

    Second Question is in this time of social distancing what kind of home schooling material would you put together that would help with general critical thinking skills and deduction and reasoning?

    When you look at products like Khan academy as a professional what do you like about Khan academy

    What would like a curriculum to look like if you were to put one together your self?

  38. Every action has an opposite and equal reaction…
    Positive solutions are gaining steam thanks to this crisis.

    Affirmative Agroecological Responses to Coronavirus
    March 30, 2020

    “Driven by the shuttered economies and supply chain disruptions provoked by the Coronavirus, and our basic human survival instincts, people have churned up a tsunami of affirmative agroecological activity toward securing garden seeds, growing food cooperatively, and otherwise connecting with local farms.

    The New York Times has published an article about the new, rapidly developing Cooperative Gardens Commission. In response to the pandemic, Experimental Farm Network (EFN) is urging people to establish “cooperative gardens” to grow as much food this year as they possibly can.

    EFN initiated their effort on March 18, 2020 under the name Corona Victory Gardens. Within days hundreds of people and groups responded and began organizing to build a movement. In less than a week, over 1,000 people came forward to either request support or to offer resources. At that point the network officially changed its name to the “Cooperative Gardens Commission.”

    Working at computers, 400 self-quarantined volunteer organizers formed 14 working groups: Outreach, Education, Fundraising, Media Relations, Policy, Tech/Logistics, Work & Livelihoods, etc.

    Their intention is to build the commission into a broad-based, inclusive, and lasting agroecological movement for people and groups who have resources to share, or who need resources to grow food. The Commission has three aims:

    – Support people in cities to take over defunct community gardens and vacant lots and fill them with life once more.

    – Support people in towns and suburbs who normally strive to keep their lawns green to instead rip up grass and plant vegetable gardens.

    – Encourage farmers who normally grow fields of commodity crops to set aside a portion of their land and labor to grow fruits and vegetables for their neighbors and for those in need in nearby communities.”

    • As I was doing some research into growing food at home, I found something cool. Here is a database of more than 4,000 CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) farms, where members of a community can buy local produce and other food from local farmers. The database also contains locations of farmers markets, food stands, etc.

    Interesting stuff.
    Now I know what to expect… eventually coming to Texas.

  40. North Texas – March 31, 2020 – Tuesday

    I paid $1.43 per gallon for gasoline today.
    Grocery Store: “Limit One” still on many items, including bottled water.
    But no limit on beer or soda.
    Produce is full. Meat counter and frozen food still a bit low in sections.

    Fast Food drive-thrus are open, but no dine-in.
    Traffic on the roads is easy driving.
    Schools are closed.
    Restaurant dine-in closed.

    Most folks are relatively cheery and relaxed…even with “distancing”…employees sometimes chatting close to each other.
    I did not run into any floor templates on where to stand nor signs about “getting too close”. My cashier and I were very close. Normal talk.
    Rarely, do I see someone wearing a mouth mask.
    However, at times, some folks seemed stressed and quiet.

    BANK – Online messages from the bank website write about how to handle conflicts with charges from cancelled travel places and such.

    When I went to pay a credit card online today, it had a message offering to postpone my payment until June with no penalty nor downgrade in credit standing.

    It is a sad song for the little guy in business, and for the hourly folks laid-off.
    Every time the government injects money, the chasm widens between the “haves” and the “have nots”.

  41. Commercial Real Estate – Bloomberg
    Throughout 2019, many pundits had noted how the commercial real estate market was in a bubble.
    In fact, this was observable. Commercial Rents were very high.
    Remember “We Work”?

    Barrack Says Real Estate Collapse Will Take Hold in April
    Video (10 minutes)
    Real estate billionaire Tom Barrack, Colony Capital’s chairman, founder and chief executive officer, talks about the state of the commercial mortgage market and if the Federal Reserve is doing enough to help it. He speaks to Erik Schatzker on “Bloomberg Markets.”

  42. It’s been a long day, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to understand this whole picture and what it means for us and to what can we compare it to in order to actually get a grip on the emotional impact of what’s happening, if it actually matters in the long run. Maybe there’s some use in trying to gain perspective; at this point, I’m really not sure.

    I must stay that we have to hand it to whoever or whatever or however this has happened. It is an amazing symphony of orchestrated forces that have come together and continue to come together to create a nearly perfect disaster on the entire planet, but my focus is mostly on how can we in the US relate to this and create a framework of perspective?

    It at first seemed logical to look at the great depression as a proxy for where we are and going. But that’s not what captures it for me, at least not for today’s experiences. It seems to me that what we have actually is something that was even worse than the depression.

    We are now looking at what could be called a


    My brain gelified into that paradigm because it’s so different from the experiences we’ve read about regarding the depression, where people really were able to at least TRY to come together to help each other.

    Today, even if you tried to “help someone” they might call the Sheriff and have you quarantined and / or jailed as a “social distancing terrorist” or a Covidiot, and that kind of treatment wouldn’t even be surprising to most people, but actually Cheered by many them. A large percentage would simply look the other way, and the others would be afraid to speak out because of he social and now LEGAL ramifications of “standing up” or “standing out”(Maybe even STANDING OUTSIDE YOUR OWN RESIDENCE). I’ve heard stories that in some jurisdictions (TN or KY) where people are using ankle bracelets to track down “positives”. Twitter now has an app that enables you “compete with your friends” to see who can “hibernate” the longest, and according to RT…If I didn’t hear wrong…there’s also a move to create real-time tracking of the “positive zombies”, or whatever we’re going to call them eventually.

    Two nights ago, we discovered a GREAT Documentary about a priest in Poland in 1979 – 1983 who was only in his early 30s but virtually transformed the entire country and turned it against the idea that communism and despotism was NOT acceptable. That entire process, however was based on the building of HUGE CROWDS of people who attended his Masses inside and outside the church until maybe 30,000 people attended his monthly celebrations of the Mass dedicated to the Solidarity Movement, it’s remnants and it’s followers and their truth. When Father Jerzy was kidnapped by the secret police and missing for 9 days, 50,000 people attended the mass that he was unable to lead. Days later he was found bound and murdered in a lagoon.

  43. Sorry…last post got snipped….I’ll continue here: Part II:

    The RADIO was used to re-broadcast his sermons, and they were released to the ears of MILLIONS of people in the Soviet Block throughout this time, and this entire process and his martyrdom was the original domino that fell and eventually resulted in the fall of the wall, Berlin, 1989. None of this was done with force and violence, however. From that fact alone, maybe we can find hope. I pray that it’s true.

    However, today, that kind of action is BRILLIANTLY forbidden, and cannot possibly happen:

    1. Church services are ILLEGAL, and in Florida, and maybe other places Ministers are being arrested for defying the “social distancing” rules. These people are even being accused of MURDER, by extension of the idea that he’s putting people’s lives at risk just by allowing them to attend church services.

    2. The Media is CONTROLLED and the Internet is as well, as much as we’d like to believe that the truth is still out there to find. Maybe it is, but it’s a Hell of a lot harder to find now than it was. Virtually EVERY search on the StartPage.com website returns hundreds of MAINSTREAM MEDIA links before anything else, and sometimes even 10-20-30 pages back you still see CNN CBS NBC Washington Post, etc etc.

    So….our predicament is a beautiful prison created by minds that have put much work and into learning from the past mistakes that have prevented the institution of a New World Order. I can’t help thinking that in the NewsSpeak world we’re in now, “The New Normal” = A “New World Order.” I hope I’m wrong. I keep hearing many of “us” saying these words, the “New Normal”. What does that mean?

    What I do know is that over 1,000,000 people came to his church, the St Stanislaus Church in Warsaw to remember his life and his death.

    Anyway, that documentary is still worth watching on the Documentary Channel on Roku, and probably elsewhere…it’s called

    Messenger of the Truth:




  44. Finally for Now: Part III:

    It’s a useful exercise, I think to make a list of the similarities and differences between what happened in the revolution of Poland in the late 70’s -early 80’s and the situation we’re in now. Maybe there are lessons we can learn from those past examples to help us to deal with this in a logical way that an help us to get past fear, frustration and paralysis. I hope so. Maybe we can discuss it here on this forum.

    Here are just a few of the obvious challenges to that concept that we face:

    Just today, I saw multiple people recoil in horror as we came within about 10 feet of them in the section of the store we were shopping in…especially in the vegetable section, where it’s almost impossible to avoid being within the “forbidden bubble” of others, and their reactions are not necessarily seen as anything but NORMAL by the majority of people we see. They have a Gut-Hook on all this propaganda and paranoia….pretty soon we’ll have an app where you can earn points and maybe even money by turning in the ‘bad guys” who aren’t part of “our tribe”.

    Recently, our own neighbors, who have been very good friends of ours are increasingly looking at us with suspicion and anger….how can that happen so quickly?

    How did we get here? I’d like to just see ONE statistic, if it’s possible to come up with it: Can we COMPARE the TOTAL numbers of DEATHS on any given day or days, and do that for each of the similar days in previous years to find out if there is any statistical difference in toto from this “pandemic” or not. Does anyone already have access to someting like that? I haven’t seen it.

    In other words, are more people dying this year on April 1st in each jurisdiction that has been declared a “hotspot” or are we just misdiagnosing the “cause of death.”? And…..BTW, are coroners around the country actually doing any autopsies on these people or not? I still haven’t seen a single interview with a husband, wife, sister, brother, son, daugher or any combo thereof who are actually MOURNING the death of their loved ones…have any of YOU? Please post the links cause I’d like to see them.

    One problem is that because of the “rules” we’ve not almost ALL come to accept is that church services, much LESS funerals are just out the window…what’s that about, btw? In other words, we have created a social isolationism that forces us all into one camp or other…either we believe this is real and we are all going to die or something like that, or the other camp which believes that this is largely overblown and a tool of the powerful Oz’s of the world to birth a distopian reality that is artificial and pathological.

    If you’re in the wrong camp, there’s just absolutely no way to measure where to limits of the fear, hatred and paranoia will take us, not to mention the impending poverty and desperation that goes along with that…it’s just beginning.

    So for now, it’s brother against brother, family against family, neighbor against neighbor, and the only thing that I can relate that kind of situation to in THIS country is the Civil War, which killed more people than all the other wars we’ve experienced before or since, if I’m getting my history right (someone please correct me if that’s wrong, cause it’s likely way off, but the CIVIL WAR is unfolding before us RIGHT NOW!

    The “offiicals” who are ruling over these strange times have many of the bases covered. Maybe baseball is not the game we should be playing. Maybe we need to find ways to redefine the rules of the game, or better yet, change the game altogether.

    Sorry….this is completely unorganized and rambling…maybe after more sleep I can regroup my brain and do something more concise and productive. Still: Watch the Video..it’s a GREAT place to see Lessons for the present by seeing courage, tragedy, and even victory in the past.

    • holmesmd2, your three-part eulogy to Father Jerzy hasn’t been lost on me. The trailer makes the documentary look truly gripping, so I’ll definitely rent the movie, despite not wanting to contribute to Amazon’s profits.

  45. As if it needs to be said, if so-called dramatic gains in the economy could be wiped out by…what?…then was it real at all? The fundamentals, if they were sound, would have remained even in the face of a pandemic. The decline was already in progress before most of the world set upon a course of self-destruction (shelter-in-place) orders, so the pandemic can’t be blamed for all of it.

    Trump’s economy was as fake as Obama’s, but Trump will have the dubious distinction of being left holding the bag and being blamed for the collapse. I’m not particularly happy about this, as I had hoped that Trump would indeed be the one to turn the tide against the Deep State. His Inauguration speech was a throwing down of the gauntlet, of sorts, but was it a wink-wink throwing down of the gauntlet? Seems so now. Disappointed, but not really surprised.

  46. The book of Revelation never seemed so plausible as it is right now. That vision of total control over the individual is now possible, with the technology available to those who seek that kind of control. It’s only going to get more and more possible as time goes on. With the advent of 5G and the ubiquity of the internet all around you in practically everything that exists, the total lock-down on your financial independence with digital currency and social credit scores and the possibility that this will all be tied together with some sort of implanted digital ID, I don’t see the individual standing much chance against those who desire to rule the world.

    What a frightening but, at the same time, fascinating time to be alive. I may have to become a Dispensationalist again!
