  1. James,
    Thank you for putting some images in the video. They do help follow the subject matter.

    I like seeing Corbett on these other Alternative Media outlets. This is important for a number of reasons, one of which is that each media outlet has its own type of audience. This brings wider exposure to many of the topics (e.g. anarchism) which Corbett discusses.

    I know that some members got a little ruffled when Sean Stone interviewed James Corbett. (Sean had a show, Buzzsaw, which interviewed all types of characters, some of which might had been a little loopy in the head or “really out there”.) So what. I say again “So what”. It was the message which was important. And James got to reach a wider audience.

  2. Jim Marrs passed away today (August 2, 2017)
    Joe, the Founder of the “North Texans for 9/11 Truth” Group has been keeping in touch with associates of Jim Marrs, because Jim has been ill. Jim lives in the North Texas area. He has been ill for a month or two, mostly confined to bed rest. Jim has helped “North Texans for 9/11 Truth” with many past events. A very personable, down to earth, likable guy with a compassion for humanity. A wealth of knowledge. And he loved sharing it.

    Here is an InfoWars video.

  3. Canadian billionaire, Jeff Skoll, made his first billion as president of eBay… a position he was hired for straight out of Stanford business school. What’s he up to these days?

    Do you dare to question climate crisis?
    Do you suspect mainstream media may contain traces of propaganda?
    Does the collapse of building 7 raise any concerns?

    You just might be a stoopid Trumper………

    How many more days before the reality-show-actor-in-chief is publically tarred and feathered? Moving forward, only a stoopid, racist, crude, baseball hat wearing, pussy grabbing, unedumacated red neck would dare to question our media gods.

    Let us hold hands and utter the magic words:

    Hope, change, belief, democracy, faith in “science”, religious freedom…… etc. ad nausem

    • Oh yes, Activist Post. And from there I went to Waking Times and Jon Rappaport’s newsletters. I love how all the different perspectives clash with each other as they find their own little niches in my mind.
      But on this video, I was not worried about the economics of things. When the currency collapses, there will still be goods and services as before. We will simply find a new way to conduct our transactions in them. Will they be centralized or de-centralized? I have no idea, nor do I really care about things that I cannot know. I do know of what I need to both survive and thrive; and that is what I concern my self about. So, I truly have no real opinion on bitcoin, or whatever other currency idea is being floated.
      I would like to address the AI question that James posed. Is it something we should be concerned about? Probably not. True, they will make advances in mind reading and the like. They are probably further along in that than we know. But, that won’t be the end all of free thought. I have heard recently that old-time beekeepers (who didn’t tell me when I had need to know!) would picture an octagon in their minds when they approached their beehive. Apparently, they claimed it would cause the bees to be less interested in stinging them. Whether this is due to some psychic connection or the easing of the tension in the human body causing the bees to view you differently is a different story. However, the point is that we do have the ability to control our thoughts to a far greater degree than we are led to believe. So, that technology won’t be the end game for free thinking.
      But, to keep you on edge; there is no need for AI to become a terminator to keep you worried. A simple killbot doesn’t need that kind of programming. So don’t worry about AI, worry about what we have today. Hope that makes everyone feel safer now. Jim, still out-running the face eating zombies of Fluoride-a!

  4. Pablo,
    You are a wondrous beautiful being!
    Thanks for being you!

    (You are in the top 2% and I know you don’t give a Rat’s Ass despite your prejudices against Psychopaths.) 😉

  5. If you look at the satellite picture of the Korean Peninsula which Dumsfeld is showing at about time 17.30 you can see clusters of light off the east and west coasts of South Korea. There is an “island” of light off the west coast and a much larger cluster of light off the east coast in an area where there don’t seem to be any large cities or ports. Are all of these lights (with apparently the same brightness as the lights being emitted from Seoul) coming from ships or fishing boats in the Yellow Sea and the Sea of Japan?
    Also, if you look at the bottom right of the picture, there don’t seem to be any lights coming from Japan. In fact, Japan appears to be as dark as North Korea.
    Any ideas: What is this picture really showing?

  6. My antisemitism comes from the fact I don’t view jewish victims as any more important than victims from any other provenience.

    Palestine should have terror camps in Gaza, they would be a lot more authentic.
