  1. Who gets custody of the Gates Foundation?

    Pretty sure it won’t be me. And I’m not too unhappy.

  2. McCarthy was, it turned out, correct about the commie infiltration.

    He just did not get how powerful folks inthe US knew and were fine with it

  3. RE: Story #1
    I just read that Bezos’s ex got $38 Billion and Melinda Gates will likely get more. I have no doubt that she will only get the money if she agrees to remain silent, and consents to all the money being repaid if she breaks the silence. This will allow her to step aside and thus get out of the line of fire while Bill caries on as usual.
    On the other hand, this could all be a cleverly crafted Diversion.

  4. Concerning ‘currencies’ or however one chooses to describe forms of what I call “value-exchange” and considering a universal lack of knowledge of Earth’s future, I recommend diversification.
    A couple possibilities being, “precious” metals, cryptocurrencies, and whatever the commonly used form of value-exchange has been in whatever geographic area one speculates finding themselves in future. US$? Coin (Treasury) over FED paper or digital.
    Easily transportable non-perishable forms of nutrition will certainly find a use and exchange value.
    An important consideration being, “What do I need to keep my body and mind functioning in healthy ways?” for, from those functions, we make all other Earthly decisions.
    Oh, the \/ word? Genetic modification qualifies one to be a “patent-able product” and patent-able products are typically owned and controlled by supranational corporations. Patent-able products are not usually recognized as FREE individuals making voluntary decisions about their own lives.
    I’m still encouraging people to listen to “LOVEBITES – ”Rising” LIVE 2020 with lyrics” even though it’s on u2b.

  5. I watch the 11 PM TV news from SF every few days to see if the narrative/propaganda has changed. Just three nights ago the narrative was all masks and getting the vaccines. The reporters all wore masks. The people they interviewed all wore masks. The stories were all about getting the vaccines.

    But tonight, lo and behold! Suddenly even reporter Andrea Borba nee Gorda took off her mask! I haven’t seen her full face on the news for over a year. None of the reporters wore masks tonight. The only time I saw masks was with two doctors they showed for a second in their office or walking outside with masks on, but during the interview with the doctors… no masks.

    San Francisco is now in the lowest safest yellow tier. Now the narrative changes: the vaccines worked! You can all come out now and go to the restaurants (none of which shown were full). Again, no masks.

    The biggest story was about how all the kids are getting fat around here from the lockdown. The kids have gained around 15 to 20 pounds! A few kids went the other way and look like concentration camp victims. How sad.

    But of course the Ken Bastarda anchor of KPIX News never mentions how the government was responsible for this happening or the school boards.

    There was also a story about a mentally ill black man who stabbed an old Asian man to death, but the black man is crazy (though he was released from a mental health facility) so it’s okay. The stabber may get life in prison. (I doubt it.)

    Earthquakes up near Truckee (4.9 on the Richter scale). Fires in Contra Costa County. “Are they ready for fire season?”

    Speaking of which the State Fund for relief payments to all the wildfire victims spent 90% of its money on overhead (lawyers, assessors, insurance agents) and only 10% went to actual fire victims.

    The numbers are pitiful. The State Fund has now said that it is paying out $112 million to fire victims on average $13,000 per household. What a joke! PG & E burns down your house and you get $13k. What do you buy? A used RV?

    And the final story, which shows the new fear narrative. Looks like the Covid propaganda fear campaign is over (no masks). “Extreme Drought” is the new fear narrative. The whole Bay Area is in Extreme Drought!

    So put away your masks, but also put away that watering hose and sprinkler system. No washing your cars or yourself. Clean clothes? It’s hot. Just wear a thong.

    Tonight the pivot was made to the Climate Emergency from Covid just as James Corbett predicted months ago.

    Well, at least we can breathe now, though since folks won’t be taking showers or washing their clothes soon; you may want to put your mask back on. Buy some pine scented masks.


    • Timmy,
      I really enjoy these anecdotal reports. Thanks.

    • ANECDOTE – Related sideways to Story #3:
      NFL and Phone Facial Recognition

      The $900,000+ annual salary of the NFL player in the story is what I have observed with some other players.
      My granddaughter, an athletic but petite 90 pound young lady, had been the girlfriend of an NFL player for awhile.
      One day, he was driving with her in the passenger seat.
      She was texting on the phone.
      He wanted to see her text. She wouldn’t show it to him. Things got heated, very heated. He pulled the vehicle over, and pulled her by the hair as she was trying to get out. He grabbed her head/hair trying to force her face to the phone to unlock the facial I.D. recognition. Things got much more physical, and it seems she may have had some cracked ribs. Of course, there were a lot of riled family members about this incident, including me.

      Maybe phone I.D. facial recognition isn’t cracked-up to be a safe way to lock your phone.

  6. This week’s Thursday episode of the No Agenda podcast also has some stuff on handling vaccine hesitancy.

  7. James is such a loveable character

  8. The Rothschild Economist has just released a stark piece on CBDC. Once again James your predictions have been spot on.

  9. In the UK, having Communist Party links is not seen in the same way as it is in the USA (except to papers like the Daily Mail). And there are other members of the Kings College Behavioural Science team with equally questionable activities in their bios – look at Sir Simon Wessley, who set up the unit, and M Brooke Rodgers. Both have military links.

    I’m not trying to downplay Michie’s associations. But she probably genuinely believes she is acting for the common good. Such people believe they are working towards equality for all, helping the poor and the disadvantaged, but they are really, probably unknowningly, working for the elites, bringing the masses into control to make them easier for the elites to dominate, without the troublesome middle classes getting in the way.

    One thing I find intriguing is the emergence of Spiked Online (formerly Living Marxism) from the Revolutionary Communist Party, and the way that the group of founder members of that organisation have achieved prominence in British public life, especially in right-wing politics.

    • “.. But she probably genuinely believes she is acting for the common good…”

      Do not give such a person the benefit of they doubt, they are always bad, evil people who have a pathological need to take power over other people because they know, deep in their heart , that they themselves are deeply disgusting people.

      Do not be a fool and see them as anything different because they will destroy you otherwise if able… 2nd never trust any person who wants to use psychology on others- combine that with being a commie and your looking at a person who wants to murder you- not even kidding

      I hate to agree with a nut like the Unabomber but he had the psychology of ‘leftism’ down to a tee.

  10. I worked in close proximity to a methodology known as ‘behavioural analytics’ which arrived on the shores of Australia from UK. I have to wonder now if I was part of some Manhattan Project. At least the experience prepared me to identify the manipulation that the 99.9% is being injected with.

    If you are interested, here is the NSW Department of Premier & Cabinet’s Behavioural Insights Unit –

    • I was just reading about the Macy conferences when this kind of human control started to main line and was amazed that some people around it were channeling alien Egyptian gods in space…. it would be hilarious if these whack jobs did not have the power , and now he tools , to go all monkey with a bandsaw.

      Man… I can look at star trek the same 🙁

      • Duck, well the ancient Egyptians used to apply nasal swabs to their slaves as well so go figure.

  11. I agree with your solution to the problem of scams, “reject sales pitches that include threats and harassment”. However, I think that the real trick is to recognize the scam as a scam and the scammer as a scammer. This is harder than you think, especially when the scammer presents himself as part of a group you belong to: organization, club, religion, tribe, political party or great and wonderful vision of a better world, etc. Here is an article I found (probably directly or indirectly from a Corbett Community Comment). “Understanding scam victims: seven principles for systems security” from the University of Cambridge.
    University of Cambridge Technical Report 754
    To resist propaganda, you have to recognize it as such.

    • This is really an important question that I just started to ask myself this morning: Why is it that some people do recognize scam and others do not? Where does this ‘skill’ come from?!

      To understand this question would be a huge help in combating scams but as for me, I sadly do not know the answer.

      My best guess is that this kind of resilience of the mind has nothing to do with intelligence. Because my experience is, that people that I deem really intelligent, often do fail the emotional test of a scam catastrophically. Thus I think scamming might be all about emotions and intelligence will do nothing to harden you against this.

      But then, WHAT will harden one against this emotional attacks if intelligence does not do the trick? What is it?

      Simple booklearning cannot be it can it? Is it genetic or what? Does anybody have an idea a how to develop this train of thought into more insight?

      Is there any research on this topic? at the moment, of all the books I have read there comes not one to my mind which specifically covers that topic and I do have some background in the different philosophies of the sceptics and their dispute with the dogmatic school.

      So the 1 Bill. question is:
      How does a sceptic become a sceptic and recognize propaganda?

      A kingdom for a horse…

      • How does a sceptic become a sceptic and recognize propaganda? Big Question, many answers. Traditional saying abound:, “Once burned, twice shy”; “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me”. You become more skeptical as you fall victim to wiley scam artists. However, its my personal theory that con games are just a subset of mind/behavior control games that people are constantly playing as a part of normal human interaction. That makes humans sound awful, but the same general strategies are used by loving parents, advertisers, scam artists, serial killers. You recognize deception if you have been hurt, but not if you have been helped–or you think you have been helped. Example–DISTRACTION: have you ever distracted a two-year old in order to get something dangerous away from him? The same technique is used in chess, politics, and war. It’s used every night on the evening news. If you can recognize the age-old techniques of mind/behavior control you will be less vulnerable, but not invulnerable. Plan on being fooled again and again.

      • What you refer to as intelligence is, in this context, intellect; that is the capacity to break down linear tasks and hold a logical train of thought. This is enabled by the left side of the brain. The left imbalanced people will have tendancies toward domination.

        The ability to process emotions comes from the rigth side of the brain, as well as big picture thinking. It will also allow people to be sold on various false beliefs. The right imbalanced will have a bent toward allowing to be dominated, becoming a slave.

        Only when you strike a balance between the two side (i.e. stop being brain damaged), can you be deemed to have holistic inteligence. Basically, one needs to learn how to feel and think at the same time.

        Most of what you are refering to, in way of lacking scepticism, is coming from the false belief in authority and unwilingness to accept that others might be disposed to do things one would never do; as well as the extremely deleterious lack of willingness to accept personal responsibility.

        Many people who are chasing truths leave an impression of a dog chasing a car; if it caught up with one, what would it do woth it? The truth is extreme and does not have shades of gray, the only way to get to it is to go all the way.

        To get from here to there, one will be tempted all the way. All the people who are seem to be lacking scepticism, have simply succumbed on the very beginning of their path.

      • Engineered philosopher
        “..Why is it that some people do recognize scam and others do not? Where does this ‘skill’ come from?!…become a sceptic and recognize propaganda?…”

        Most people are the fishie in the river who does ot know what being wet is because its normal.

        You need to expand your mind to see what is around you
        Best ways are

        a)Be an outsider- either a social reject or a foreigner
        b)Go live in a place where things are different from where you grew up… you see the differences between home and there and compare. MOST people for a POV
        c)Get badly hurt by a person, group or scam that you totally bought into so you now are bitter and untrusting
        d) Read lots and lots of old books (and watch movies) from a time when the propaganda line was different… seeing how the programing has changed is like item B
        e)Read Socratic dialogues- after a while liking the ideas you should realize that Plato was an evil post humanist fascist but you will have learn to ask annoying questions…. (DO NOT spend much too time with later philosophers since they mostly suck too)
        f)Learn a new language… you can not do NLP to a person very well in their non native language… you also get to think in different ways your own language can not easily construct and you order your thinking in new ways changing native terms to the new terms to speak.
        g)Be an unpleasant ass who does not care what other people think

        Easy… anyone can do it 😉

  12. I have been interested in the subject of mind and behavior control for the last ten years. Before that, I was just-a-teacher. To get a small idea of how much we humans are studied, go to the page titled “Heuristic” on Wikipedia. Don’t read it for the information, but for the basis of that information. How many so-called scientists, behaviorists, psychologists, mathematicians, philosophers, lawyers, financiers, software engineers, etc. can you find all trying to figure out how we make decisions–and it goes without saying–how to control those decisions? They have been and still are studying us like bugs under a microscope.

    • Libido Dominandi by E M Jones has some sections on the people who want to rule… his “degenerate moderns” with bio’s on Jung and Freud was a real eye opener to what kind of person wants the power to cloud mens minds

      Wish this was hyperbolic but its really not- soon it will be too late for people who let the wrong media into their minds

  13. Regarding lab grown meat: it’s a scam. As a cell biologist and tissue engineer I can tell you that there is no way to grow the necessary number of skeletal muscle cells for even just one steak without using massive amounts of animal serum (the liquid component of blood; usually fetal bovine serum is used) and antibiotics. In other words, lab grown meat still requires killing animals and antibiotic use – the very reasons cited for promoting lab grown meat! Please check out The Good Food Institute. They are a non-profit that is a major promoter of lab based meat. They’re at

  14. Short and sweet. I watched this episode of NWNW while getting prepped for surgery in East GR at 4:00am this morning. It’s nice to watch one of your favorite news shows, keeping your mind occupied, knowing you’re about to go under the knife! Thank you fellas for all that you do, keep rollin!!!

    What do you know? Comment 27, my lucky #! Its going to be a good day!

    • Hey thank you for asking! Yeah, it went off without a hitch! The surgeon got done early actually. It wasn’t a very invasive surgery to begin with, but it makes you somewhat nervous regardless. Hopefully everything heals up soon and I’ll be back to 100% in no time. Cheers!


    • Yes, you are right. There is indeed no guesswork involved, they are just making crap up. Guessing would imply they are at least trying to come up with something, but they must understand this is all just a smoke screen.

  15. “..Bill Cosby is innocent and has been, for political reasons, transformed into the fall guy for the MeToo movement,..”

    Bill Gates is probably guilty..though TBH it did not come across as anything other then a scumbag having sex with a scumbag for drugs.
    The guilt or innocence of Cosby DOES NOT MATTER… the reason he was taken down was that he quite often spoke against the mentality of victimization that has been used to do to the blacks what a hundred years of jim crow laws could not do. That he was a hypocrite is irrelevant… no black celeb of similar status is gonna speak out for fear of the same happeniunig to them

    • “..Bill Gates is probably guilty..”

      Opps… meant Bill Cosby

        • For the Record…
          Anecdotes about a little girl by that girl.

          “I have a few memories as early as 2, 2 and half years old. Sounds like I’m tooting my horn, I know, but it’s true. Nothing earth-shaking. Like in one, I’m just lying on my back in my crib sucking on a baby bottle, spitting some out, kicking my legs in the air being vaguely furious that my Mom seemed to be ignoring me while changing the diapers of my little sister who was 15 months younger than me, in her crib just a few feet to my right. Remember the taste of the baby formula, and the itchy rash on my face where I was drooling the stinky milk on my cheek. Then finally I kicked my legs really high in the air and threw my baby bottle what seemed to be across the room but in retrospect I’m sure it was just over the railing of the bed. My mom yelled at me a lot, she was really mad. I was too.
          Also remember standing on the tip of my toes, perched on my chest of light blue drawers, fingerpainting the walls with Desitin butt cream. Got yelled at for that too. Dad thought it was hilarious.
          I remember my recurrent dreams and nightmares from that period in NYC as well.
          I guess I’m just feeling nostalgic. It was the baloney. and the cold ground on bare feet.”

  16. “..Digital, Blockchain “currency” is being aggressively popularized, so as to prime the normies for acceptance of the imminent conversion to CBDCs…”

    Yes, I think you are right

  17. Have you taken a look at Dfinity? They launch on Monday an internet upgrade that replaces the current TCIP system that relies on linked private networks to a encrypted by default blockchain based web that allows anyone to build apps directly on the web itself without having to go through a third party site, thus eliminating platform risks.
    Love to hear your thoughts as you two always have great insights that I tend to overlook.

  18. There is a theory that Epstein was sent in to provide ammo to blackmail powerful people around the world so they would have to cooperate with the plan of the Elite to take us down. The timing, just before the Plandemic, supports this theory.

  19. I think that the greatest positive result about this divorce is the large release into the general media of Gates’ close connection with Jeffrey Epstein through the decades including six log-ins on the Lolita Express to Pedo Island, USVI.

  20. James Corbett giving the lowdown…

    A wonderful feature of these New World Next Week’s is when Corbett gives us a lowdown.
    Lowdown DEFINITION – the true facts or relevant information about something.

    On the April 23rd, Interview 1634 – New World Next Week’s ” 9/11 Cover Up Director Appointed to Chair COVID Cover Up Group”, Corbett had an excellent segment about Philip Zelikow where he presented the information in such a way that anyone, old timers or new people, could digest.

    Here again, with “Story #2: Why Is A Communist Party Member Shaping UK’s Lockdown Policy?”, Corbett gives us a lowdown and perspective that should not be missed.

    Melinda Gates – Will the Tabloids run with this?…

    James Corbett at 6:15 minute mark
    ”… Melinda has been the driving force behind a number of the initiatives of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, including specifically that conference I talked about that just happened to be held in London on the 100th anniversary of the 1913 first International Eugenics Conference back in 2013.
    Just by coincidence, of course, where they were talking about – What were they talking about? Oh! That’s right! “Population Control in the Third World”, of course.
    Wow! …again just coincidental.
    And she was promoting for example Depo-Provera and other implantable birth control products that are controversial in a number of ways even amongst the normie crowd….”

    • TABLOID related…

      May 6th – The Daily Beast
      Melinda Gates Warned Bill About Jeffrey Epstein
      After a secret meeting between the couple and the wealthy sex offender, Melinda was furious and told friends she wanted nothing to do with Epstein, The Daily Beast has learned.

      Melinda Gates met with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein alongside her husband, Bill, in New York City and soon after said she was furious at the relationship between the two men, according to people familiar with the situation.

      The previously unreported meeting occurred at Epstein’s Upper East Side mansion in September 2013, on the same day the couple accepted the Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service Award at The Pierre hotel and were photographed alongside then-Mayor Mike Bloomberg.

      The meeting would prove a turning point for Gates’ relationship with Epstein, the people familiar with the matter say, as Melinda told friends after the encounter how uncomfortable she was in the company of the wealthy sex offender and how she wanted nothing to do with him.

      Gates’ friendship with Epstein—who for years was accused of molesting scores of underage girls—still haunts Melinda, according to friends of the couple who spoke to The Daily Beast this week in light of the pair’s divorce announcement, which had been weeks in the making…

      …The ties between Gates and Epstein ran much deeper than the tech mogul first admitted. As The New York Times reported, starting in 2011, Gates met with Epstein on numerous occasions. This was three years after Epstein pleaded guilty to soliciting an underage girl in Florida; by then, accusations that Epstein exploited girls and young women were widely reported in the press…

      …The New York Times revealed Gates had met with Epstein at a 2011 get-together at Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse that included the financier’s ex-girlfriend Eva Andersson-Dubin and her daughter. (Virginia Giuffre, a survivor of Epstein’s sex ring, has accused Dubin’s hedge-funder husband, Glenn, of abuse—a charge he has strenuously denied.)

      Indeed, the Times reported Gates visited Epstein multiple times from 2011 to 2013, and that Epstein had tried pitching a new charitable fund to JPMorgan honchos and to the Gates Foundation. In 2013, Gates also took a ride on Epstein’s private jet (christened by tabloids as the Lolita Express), from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach, Florida, according to flight records reviewed by the Times. CNBC also reported that Gates rendezvoused with Epstein in New York in 2013….

      • Monday May 10th, 2021 – Zero Hedge
        Has The Mainstream Media Finally Turned Against Bill Gates?

        Not long after we pointed out a report from the Daily Beast which traced the tensions in the marriage of Bill and Melinda Gates to Bill’s relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the Wall Street Journal has followed up with more reporting that confirms that Melinda Gates started consulting divorce attorneys as far back as 2019, before the pandemic thrust her husband back into the global spotlight as the world’s de facto vaccine czar.

        Documents obtained by WSJ show the couple negotiated their divorce throughout the pandemic.
        Ms. Gates consulted with divorce lawyers roughly two years before she filed for divorce from Mr. Gates, saying their marriage was “irretrievably broken,” according to people familiar with the matter and documents reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

        …But what’s almost more notable than the details report by WSJ and the Daily Beast, is the fact that the MSM seems to be jumping on the story that Bill Gates’ relationship with Jeffrey Epstein directly led to the dissolution of his marriage.

        This is a big deal because, as we reported more than a year ago, Bill Gates and the Gates Foundation have built up one of the world’s most formidable media-manipulation machines to help silence Gates’s growing chorus of critics.

        Here’s a snippet from a Columbia Journalism Review story on how Gates manipulates the press:
        [Then article continues with IMAGES]

        “His Womanizing Was Well Known”: Flood-‘Gates’ Open As Biographer Details Microsoft Founder’s Salacious Past

        ZERO HEDGE May 11, 2021

        Before Bill Gates was known as an elitist nerd masquerading as a leading vaccine expert, the Microsoft co-founder was a hard-partying womanizer who recruited local strippers to attend naked pool parties, and had major issues with infidelity even after marrying Melinda, according to a biography.

        The Microsoft co-founder’s wild lifestyle was well known among his inner circle — but newspapers like the New York Times hid the unflattering reports to continue getting “spoon-fed stories,” James Wallace wrote in the 1997 biography, “Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace.”

        They “didn’t report on the wild bachelor parties that Microsoft’s boyish chairman would throw in his Seattle home, for which Gates would visit one of Seattle’s all-nude nightclubs and hire dancers to come to his home and swim naked with his friends in his indoor pool,” Wallace wrote.

        It was a continuation from his time at Harvard, where he “did like to frequent Boston’s notorious Combat Zone, with its porn shows, strip joints, and prostitutes,” Wallace wrote. -NY Post

        What’s more, Bill continued acting like a bachelor even after he started dating future wife Melinda in 1988.

        “He continued to play the field for a while, especially when he was out of town on business, when he would frequently hit on female journalists who covered Microsoft and the company industry,” writes Wallace. “His womanizing was well known, although not well reported.”

        Melinda, who filed for divorce last week after 27 years of marriage which included her husband’s friendship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, “was well aware of Gates’s womanizing” even after they were in a relationship. The couple “ran hot and cold,” wrote the biographer, adding that they “broke up for nearly a year” because Gates wouldn’t commit.

        “When they got back together again in 1992, however, the relationship grew closer and stronger,” he wrote.

        One of Gates’ exes, Ann Winblad, continued having ‘weekends away’ with the Microsoft executive even after marrying Melinda in 1994.

        “A relationship with Bill early on is a test….”

  21. The bitchute link to “The manufacturing of mass psychosis” at 8;20 or so has a quote that sums up the digital distraction

    ‘..Technology lures him on, dropping him into its wheels and movements. No rest, no meditation, no reflection, no conversation…the senses are continually overloaded with stimuli..’

    compare to CS Lewis , “screwtape letters’ instructions to a junior tempter..

    ‘..That might have been so if he had lived a few centuries earlier. At that time the humans still knew pretty well when a thing was proved and when it was not; and if it was proved they really believed it. They still connected thinking with doing and were prepared to alter their way of life as the result of a chain of reasoning. But what with the weekly press and other such weapons we have largely altered that. Your man has been accustomed, ever since he was a boy, to have a dozen incompatible philosophies dancing about together inside his head. He doesn’t think of doctrines as primarily “true” or “false”, but as “academic” or “practical”, “outworn” or “contemporary”, “conventional” or “ruthless”…Don’t waste time trying to make him think that materialism is true! Make him think it is strong, or stark, or courageous—that it is the philosophy of the future. That’s the sort of thing he cares about. The trouble about argument is that it moves the whole struggle onto the Enemy’s own ground. He can argue too; whereas in really practical propaganda of the kind I am suggesting He has been shown for centuries to be greatly the inferior of Our Father Below. By the very act of arguing, you awake the patient’s reason; and once it is awake, who can foresee the result?
    Even if a particular train of thought can be twisted so as to end in our favor, you will find that you have been strengthening in your patient the fatal habit of attending to universal issues and withdrawing his attention from the stream of immediate sense experiences.
    Your business is to fix his attention on the stream. Teach him to call it “real life” and don’t let him ask what he means by “real”…..’

    ‘Screwtape raises a toast’ has a rather accurate description of modern schooling and culture of false equality too. 20 pages and its not even religious.

    • welll … this was going to go into the article on min d control.
      I guess I should not leave four tabs open at once 🙁

  22. Startling.

    From the Daily M. article (thanks for the archive link)

    “It cleverly portrayed quarantine measures, from house arrest to mask-wearing, as selfless and generous, so making nonconformists and dissenters appear stupid, selfish and mean.”

    It’s a classic divide & conquer scheme. It is so simple, it’s almost stupid. Almost.

  23. I admire Culkin for vocalizing his views.
    He is probably very well informed about Central Banks.

  24. At 17:55 Dr. James Corbett says “… never forget that’s what Edward Bernays says the ‘hidden power of society’ …”. That quoted phrase is not a book title — just a paraphrased concept (I believe). But for CorbettReport relative newbies (like myself) the off-hand remark might not be easy to catch — and the association with previous coverage on this site not well appreciated. A ShowNotes reference such as the below might prove helpful — it took me awhile to dig out the history on Doctor Ed Bernays — nephew of Dr. Sigmund Freud — and David Letterman show interviewee. NOW it’s all been surmised out (I’m edified again).

    “Bernays” search on

    Especially this treatment:
    Episode 033 of The Corbett Report podcast on February 17, 2008
    Episode 033 – Meet Edward Bernays

    • Thank you for the suggestion. I have added a link directly to Propaganda where the opening paragraphs are what I was referencing:

      “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”

  25. Visions of the future : the rise of women

    What we see here, in the first story, might be another step in the narrative. Men in power made poor choices in the past going from one crisis to another until this one, ultimately destroying nation’s economy. it’s time for women to seize power, reset the way things work, nurture and heal the planet and its inhabitants.
    We might see a transition in the coming months. Women might be the “face” of the Great Reset.
