May Open Thread and Subscriber Video (2024)

by | May 5, 2024 | Articles | 237 comments

Happy Golden Week, everybody!

Yes, believe it or not, May is already upon us. To celebrate that fact, I’ll officially open the May Open Thread for discussion. And this month there is no shortage of world-shaking developments to talk about.

. . . Oh, OK, maybe that last one isn’t so important in the big scheme of things, but it is the launching point for this month’s Subscriber Exclusive Video, in which James muses on what banknotes might tell us about the countries that issue them.

As usual, please do NOT subscribe to The Corbett Report for the Subscriber Exclusive Video, which is a slice-of-life video with no original research and no vital information.

Please DO subscribe to The Corbett Report if you want to keep this independent media going and/or if you’d like to join in the open thread discussion below.

  1. I hope that the May Festivities of the WEF, UN and Whoo blow up in their faces because we all have had enough of this ridiculously obvious attempt to usurp the powers of all the worlds’ nations. Changing the wording of the actual grabs and then annexing it to the end of the document, to hide what they really mean is stoopid, pathetic, and got my back up. I really don’t like these people that think I want or need their supervision or guidance….holy hell give me a break! Get off this planet! with love, buz

    • You might have something there. They were kicked out of countries over a thousand times. So far that hasn’t worked.

      • Miss the old website, the “howdy” the seeing (videos) the reading (notes) all on one site… but it might all be due to my ancient browser. All the best, and can you pls say something on your longtime connection with global research where I first encountered you years ago.

    • Be nice if our governments did the same thing…got off the planet; who needs them?????
      Gross mismanagement of hard earned taxpayers money.
      Involving us in wars we never asked for, never voted for over and again; sending our money, and more that they’ve borrowed from banks in our names, to countries carrying on wars we should have nothing to do with, and thereby putting us into debt with banks for generations.
      Locking the country down for something no more dangerous than flu, thereby destroying so many small businesses. Yuck!
      Forbidding us from leaving the country in which we live unless we have permission… a passport. Treating us as potential criminals that have to be tracked and controlled. Huh!
      Judging us by their own sickeningly low standards is what they are doing.
      Apart from that, as James said, they also experiment on their own citizens.
      And we accept all that cr$p?????

      • 💯% agreed!! The bigger they (governments) get, the more corrupt they get. It’s obvious they aren’t representing our wishes, and have sold out to rich corporations and shadow government entities. Do elections (more like selections) really matter when we only get questionable characters at best (most are corrupt already) to choose from?

  2. When I was in Tokyo I went into a soup place with around a hundred choices on a vending machine. My technique for navigating it was the same one I used in the subway. I project an aura of dumb Canuck and help arrives almost immediately.

    I went to a sushi bar there that looked like a 50’s diner except there was a flowing stream on the far side of the counter. Sushi floated by and you just took what you wanted and stacked the bowls, which were shaped and coloured for the price of the dish.

  3. This may need to go to QUESTIONS FOR CORBETT: I wonder if the topic of esoterism is taboo for Corbett Report.

    I ask because it looks to me that humanity is in a huge spiritual war. It’s like two sides against us, meaning one side wants to annihilate us and the other just want to reduce the population for easier control.

    All of this, courtesy of mainstream and uninformed people on Earth continuing to beat the drum of fear.

    We have been lied to every which way about everything that matters. Who was it who said something about, “We will know we have succeeded when what everyone thinks or believes are lies”?

    I am not denying all the really bad stuff is happening as well as the silent trends we don’t see yet. It’s horrible and if humans do not change course, it will be a very tough landing for all of us.

    Not wanting to get deeply into the politics of a thing because it’s all nonsense to me. From my view, these factions are like a bunch of children fighting for who gets the best seat at the table. That’s also nonsense.

    I guess what I am wondering is if Corbett Report could do a documentary video on the actual news about how people are beginning to wake up (which by now should be in the millions if not billions). Are they shocked, angry, furious, wanting revenge; or are they shocked, angry, furious, and wanting to change their lives to be more self-sufficient – not out of fear, but for better healthy living? Kind of like “Solutions Watch” on steroids.

      William Casey CIA Director (from 1st staff meeting 1981)

      For far too many the term, IMO, “spiritual” is linked to religious myth. The reality of course is about the inner respect and love for consciousness, our sentience, and the magic of being able to breathe, talk, think, etc. and not some rule book of good and bad behavior made up by men to control women and others.

      • @ejdoyle

        Thank you very much for the quote and author. What other word may be used besides “spiritual” that is not associated with religious myth? If you have one, I’ll use it 🙂

        Nice song. Living in the country, planting your gardens and living in nature is fun.

        • @Sherry

          >>What other word may be used besides “spiritual” that is not associated with religious myth?>>

          It would of course be what is one’s intent in the usage.

          IMO we are in a war/battle/struggle for human sovereignty, independence, self-determination, and control of our evolutionary progress as sentient beings.

          James, other site owners, and most of the commenters here steer away from esoteric, metaphysical, “spiritual” (confusing it with religious,”) and other “right” brain perception and knowledge. IMO, this is the result from the intentional effort of the controllers to maintain their dominance through our ignorance (not stupidity, but lack of facts) of the larger beauty of being alive. Living quite free for well over 50 years I have seen/experienced some amazing things.

          The control arms of perception and “main stream” thought, the entertainment and media, keep people in the limited “left” brain behavior of facts and figures with no exploration into feelings, behavior, and uncommon ideas. The “know-it-all” geeks of the comment box, cut and paste web culture for instance are seeking likes and false positions of power though snarky, put down comments. That wiki-percepiton. Think about how many movies, TV shows, etc. have presented psychics, explorers of alternative ways of seeing reality as fools, criminals, etc. Why?

          This is the typical us/them, good/bad, discord and division paradigm that keeps humans bickering, killing, finger pointing, etc. under the assumption they are keepers of truth rather then locked in archetypes and models of restrictive thinking. With God, nationalism, sports teams, and on an on it is always mine is better then yours and I just might kill you to prove it :-/

          Just think about what the tribal cultures call “teacher” plants…hemp, Peyote, Mescaline, hashish that take a person within to higher levels of consciousness and awareness are “bad” and the use of alcohol that puts people in aggressive, infantile, “stupid” behavior that destroys lives, both the users and the victims of their actions from drunk driving, beating spouses, etc. that is seen as funny and permitted, one might say encouraged.

          By associating the killer “drugs” like heroin, meth, fentanyl, etc. with the truth seeking plants it is easy for them to jail, criminalize, break up families, etc. and use that king of control…FEAR to maintain the reins on society. Don’t want no thinking going on here buddy.

          So don’t be concerned with anything but expressing your independent thought to others Sherry, especially on the web where Internet anonymity breeds nonsense.

          (I hate the way 2nd or 3rd reply margins get so narrowed down here :-/ )

          • @ejdoyle, great response! You’ve painted the world as sick as it appears to be. Solutions are wanted by most sane folks; and discarded by insane folks. Granted. By “spiritual” I mean that which is the non-physical part of who we are here on Earth. It has nothing to do with any religion. Triggers are telling us where energy may be stuck inside (after all, we are energy beings).

            My view may be different from yours, yet I sense you have already grasped the spiritual side of your being.

            My question to James has to do with making a documentary about how people are reacting to waking up. This, to me, would make an interesting as well as helpful documentary.

            I see more and more folks waking up now than before. For those who have been following along without ever realizing why (like some of the University students protesting), may go through stun when they see accurate information.

            Those they were following may not wake up, who knows? If they all of sudden did, they would go through more severe emotions, perhaps some kind of psychosis in severe cases.

            Our education system is in shambles. Ignorance is a great tool for the controllers. Thankfully, there are folks like James who continue tirelessly showing interesting findings to the public.

            • >>You’ve painted the world as sick as it appears to be.>>
              I was a reporter for KPFA Radio in Berkeley; I write books, songs, screenplays, I do a lot of research. As you might hear in my songs I cover love, life, politics, etc. I always try to tell a story and share knowledge, not just “silly love songs”

              >>Solutions are wanted by most sane folks; and discarded by insane folks.

              >>By “spiritual” I mean that which is the non-physical part of who we are here on Earth. It has nothing to do with any religion.>>
              I get that. Comment box communication is challenging. Need to choose our words judiciously 🙂

              >>Triggers are telling us where energy may be stuck inside (after all, we are energy beings).>>
              As a medicine man with a small “m” from what what I have learned agrees with that. Yes, bags of water with energy potential.

              >>My view may be different from yours, yet I sense you have already grasped the spiritual side of your being.>>
              Same movie theater, just different seats. Which reminds me, when 2001 the movie came out, my then wifie and I and a college teacher buddy and his wife went to a little theater in Berkeley.

              We sat in the front row and were swimming the great expanse in Mescaline. He had me at the chimpanzee tossin the bone in the air 🙂

              >>My question to James has to do with making a documentary about how people are reacting to waking up.>>
              Great angle. Do they feel guilty? Still have same friends? Can they now empathize with what conservatives have been experiencing?

              >>This, to me, would make an interesting as well as helpful documentary.>>
              Indeed. Those on the fence can easily be helped over seeing folks “just like them” who have done it.

              >>I see more and more folks waking up now than before.>>
              Good. I’ve been far off the grid the past 9 years on 46 acres 25, 40, and 52 miles from towns so I don’t know what it is like here. Living in the mountains has a certain DNA to it sort of isolated from the worst stuff but aware it is there.

              >>For those who have been following along without ever realizing why (like some of the University students protesting), may go through stun when they see accurate information.>>
              Hopefully. It is recoverable 🙂
              The metaphysical angle would be people are dancing to pre birth tune of experience and lessons in sentience.

              >>Thankfully, there are folks like James who continue tirelessly showing interesting findings to the public.>>
              Indeed. Been with him from the start on a G3 Mac Pismo using a very slow modem 🙂

              • @ejdoyle

                <> Excellent. Let’s hope James sees this conversation.

                So glad to hear you live way out in the country. I do too but probably not as way out as you are. Nearest small town is 12 miles. Nearest big city is 2 hours away. Nearest neighbor is a couple thousand feet.

          • Like some followers here already pointed out , there is a “theoretical” chance to stop the antihuman program like WHO amendment and all the wars IF!!! a critical mass of clear thinking not psyoped people would get up and stand up against it.
            The written history about societies and their power control mechanismen speeks against a practical chance. The “human herd” is psychological in a un-conflictable mood. And it would be a conclict with peoples inner freedom to stand up against the enemies … unless people not have the feeling following the masses. Hence it is still the question: HOW MANY WR ARE ?
            From my view it would change something to more hope if the critical mass would grow and become more visible for the “herd”.

            So my question is again how many we are ?

            • I don’t understand most of your comment. A bit to “heady” for me??
              47 years ago I was asking questions…

  4. The other day, a friend told me she was working on refinishing their dining room table and chairs with a product called Odie’s Oil. I just made a shelving unit for my son, which needs to be finished, and he also has a new, unfinished dining room set. He had said he wanted to just oil the table and chairs and we had decided coconut oil was a good option. Always interested in natural, nontoxic options, I was eager to look up Odie’s Oil to see what I could find out about it.

    Another natural product for outdoor applications, which I learned about quite a few years ago is this one, from Canada 🙂 which I purchased and have used, although not on a major project yet:

    I have not bought anything from this organic fabric company yet, but am receiving their e-mails and keeping an eye on what they have and watching for sales too good to pass up:

    • I like to use beeswax on fresh sanded wood and its pretty good but kinda messy. I’ve soaked small things like knife handles in lemon oil

      Dunny story about finish- I just heard that japanese arisaka rifkes were finished in a natural finish that gives people somethink like poison oak when sanded.
      https://www.youtube.com/shorts/_ASz9AwYcKk

      • I watched the video and had to send it along to my son. 🙂 Gotta watch out for those Japanese…. 😉

        How do you apply the beeswax? Do you mix it with some kind of oil? A basket-making friend mixes beeswax and mineral oil (melts them together and lets them cool) for her baskets. I can’t imagine using beeswax straight, even melted. (I just made a lot of beeswax candles today. 🙂

        Another friend uses Block Oil for his baskets, which is rice bran oil and lemon oil. It’s pretty expensive.

        I prefer raw linseed oil for my baskets, but it takes a long time to dry/cure, and one person who got baskets from me said they had a strong smell. He left them in his barn/shop for a few months and I guess they were okay after that.

        • “…How do you apply the beeswax? “….

          I’m kinda lazy- I go buy it from home Depot mixed up in a bottle. I apply it warm and let it sit for a day, polish it off with a nice cloth and then do the same. I’m not in a hurry so I do that for a week or two. I only do it in summer, otherwise its like trying to apply a stick of frozen butter. lol

          • “ like trying to apply a stick of frozen butter.” Right. 🙂

            There must be something else mixed into it if it’s in a bottle. I’ll have to check some time. I avoid Home Depot and use it as a last resort if I can’t find things anywhere else. We have quite a few locally-owned hardware stores here. But I do go sometimes (like recently when someone said they had eclipse glasses, but they were out of them when I went), so I’ll try to look for it. 🙂

    • I am very pleased with my experience with Tung Oil. It is much better than coconut oil and beeswax for finishing wood that gets impacts and washing. I got it from the Milk Paint Company. I used it on the kitchen cutting boards. I have washed and scrubbed them in very hot water dozens of times, and it holds up very well and has protected the glue joints on the boards..
      The downside is that it takes a long time to dry. You have to rub in multiple thin coats to maximize its durability. And it is pretty expensive, but it sounds like you aren’t covering a huge area. The citrus thinning agent is recommended for the first coat, to soak in and dry a little quicker. How long is long? It depends on temperature humidity and the type of wood… But at least the better part of a week.

    • @ejdoyle, great response! You’ve painted the world as sick as it appears to be. Solutions are wanted by most sane folks; and discarded by insane folks. Granted.

  5. My observation is that Americans seem to be permanently at each other’s throats. Whether it’s Trump hating, men vs women (the latest is that American women feel safer with bears than American men) or whatever.

    There is the ultra toxic and hateful transgender debate driven by an endlessly violent sub culture that treats JK Rowling as literally worse than Hitler. What kind of evil could turn adoring little Potter fans into flesh eating zombies ? It’s so extreme that I assume it’s the CIA, NSA or one of their legion of offshoots.

    American liberals are some of the worst people on earth. Constantly making accusations of racism, homophobia and so on I rarely encounter. This new antisemitism law (6090) is ultra dangerous. It’s the kind of thing liberals would have once stood against but they are too far gone. The brainwashing has destroyed them.

    • I agree that we have a real problem, but I question the way you expressed it.
      “American liberals are some of the worst people on earth”. I don’t see how they are worse than their counterparts in Germany, UK, Canada, Australia, etc. Are they worse than the Communists in China? Muslim fundamentalists? The Nazis in Ukraine? Hamas? Israeli warmongers? Well you said they were just AMONG the worst, so am I nitpicking? I wouldn’t bring this up, but you start off by bemoaning our polarization. Seems a little hypocritical. Classifying people as worst and best is not helping there. To the contrary, it feeds into the demonization that we need to avoid. Maybe a little more compassion for the brainwashing victims in the way we see these problems could be useful. Is there a better way to frame the problem?

      • Thanks hanky

        I see the endless venomous sneering and lying of American liberals online. I’m too old to have political beliefs but I grew up in a society (Scotland 1960s to 1980s) that many Americans would think of as near communist. A high percentage of the economy was state run. I really hate that they have switched left wing politics for capitalist identity based liberalism. Particularly gender transition. Like so called hate speech a major issue here in colonial Scotland.

        Since Gaza I realise that my outlook is similar to recent MP George Galloway. I am not a socialist but my general instinct as people of a similar age is to utterly condemn the genocide, and as a Corbett style conspiracy theorist to assume it was a false flag like 9/11. Galloway says he doesn’t have single liberal cell in his body. Me neither.

        I marched against the Vietnam war when I was 10 and am deeply anti American. I wish we (Europeans) could go back to that. I met a nice American doctor in Paris (1981) who told me his accent was met with extreme hostility. I laughed when he claimed America was our friend and protector. Couldn’t help myself.

        We knew this. Americans didn’t.

        ‘‘If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged’.

        Noam Chomsky

        • I heard about Scotland’s hate speech legislative moves.
          You made several points that I agree with.
          Still I wonder if there are better ways to look at our mess.
          Being 10 yrs old and deeply anti-American is an ideal?
          It seems there will be a lot of collateral damage and division sown with that. While the ‘might makes right’ paradigm certainly needs to be challenged, this didn’t start with the Vietnam War. Defeating that war effort would be meaningless, without dismantling the underpinnings of that paradigm, which has always been shared by all nations.
          I wish I had more practical answers to rectify the current insanity, but for a start, I respect the old adage, “First do no harm.”
          I am just a little older than you, and am getting philosophical. Healing works in mysterious ways, and often takes longer than we wish. This may apply to our civilization, as a whole. I don’t hold my breath waiting for Nirvana, but it seems things will eventually improve. But not in this lifetime. We are just entering the destructive phase of the current Empires.

          PS It seems to me being Communist requires great hubris and lack of foresight, as well as hindsight. My personal perspective is coming into line with Mr. Corbett’s, which features a very keen awareness of the shortcomings of our kakistocracies.

      • Gavin
        You are getting pretty good at this ! Eh!

    • Oh ya the topic of the above post is “24 Spring Foods To Forage For In 2024”

      Happy foraging everyone!

    • Some background on my motivation for doing the segment linked above with JEP (and the help of Casbot of course!)

      Most of us in the modern western world are surrounded in food and do not even know it! Whether we are walking in the forest, an empty lot or in our backyard, many of the plants and trees we see as ornamental, incidental or “weeds” have a long history of being used as food and medicine by those who lived where we now live, many generations before us.

      An Honest Assessment Of The Current Way Many Humans Live:

      We live in a time of widespread botanical blindness in the west, this is an era of artificially induced ecological illiteracy in which many people would starve to death if corporations and flimsy centralized infrastructures that metaphorically spoon feed them were to cease to function.

      It is possible that many modern day city slickers, suburban nose to the grind stone materialistic ladder climbers and rurally situated ipad addicted, credit card wielding, 5 nights of fast food a week central infrastructure dependent people would starve to death (all while being surrounded in a forest or neighborhood full of food) if centralized food production, processing and distribution systems were to collapse (and/or the centralized flimsy financial systems which the food systems depend on collapsed).

      I have been noticing how some people woke up to the scams and dangers which are inherent in the big pharma dominated industrial allopathic medicine system but now they have fallen for a different kind of trap and dependency.

      Today’s instant quick fix, consumeristic, centralized technological infrastructure dependent dominant western culture wants to convince you that you can maintain optimal health from the comfort of your computer chair, one amazon purchase and herbal pill supplement at a time. Authors write about the healing properties of plants and fungi as products purchasable from profitable companies and yet they say nothing about the healing properties (for the heart, mind and spirit) of learning to cultivate those plant and fungal medicines ourselves and/or interact with them (and forage for them) reciprocally in their native ecosystems.

      As I stated in my article on Spike Protein Detox and Cardio-Protective foods (https://gavinmounsey.substack.com/p/spike-protein-detox-intel-and-foodsherbs? ) I have a strong belief that depending on flimsy shipping supply lines to remain healthy is a precarious position to take. I also think that lab made/isolated supplement forms of plant and fungal medicines often have weak levels of bioavailability when compared to over all increased synergistic benefits of whole food sources.

      (continued..)

      I also think it is worth pointing out that here in the modern western world we are used to money (in the US and here in Canada) having a reasonably stable value and I think that as a result we have developed a kind of misplaced confidence in that perceived stability continuing because it is all we have known in our lifetime. But both history and current events tell us a different story.. and with so much of our fiat currency economy being tied into computers now, a stock market crash (due to a scamdemic or some other psyop the plutocrats have up their sleeve) or hyperinflation are not the only possible causes that could render our respective units of currency practically worthless in a very short amount of time. Not only are our computer systems and power grids dependent on unsustainable and finite resources, they are also vulnerable to being irreparably damaged / rendered unusable by both manmade and natural events (EMP-s, CME-s, hacking etc https://gavinmounsey.substack.com/p/preparing-for-the-100-year-storms? ) which means that the numbers in our bank accounts could be wiped from existence (or rendered inaccessible to us for long periods of time) without warning.

      We are also living in a time in which people had their bank accounts frozen for donating their hard earned dollars to support a peaceful human rights protest and/or for expressing views that oligarchs and their puppets in government did not like and a time in which the mechanisms are being put in place to make those types of overtly totalitarian measures a permanent facet of governance/law enforcement systems.

      Thus, whether you want to look at purely pragmatic / self-interested being resilient for emergencies/prepping practical reasons and/or you want to strive to live in a way that honors the sacredness of all life while also increasing your health, learning access food and medicine at home, via respectfully (and honorably) foraging for some of it is of paramount importance.

      Let us now attempt to remedy this ridiculous poverty of plant knowledge and lack of adventurous spirit and explore the wide open world of foraged and fermented wild and (typically) forgotten spring harvests!

      But before we get into what plants and fungi offer their gifts of nourishment and medicine to us (and many other beings) in the spring time, I would like to invoke a recognition of the importance of honoring those gifts (and not harvesting with an anthropocentric mentality) by sharing a quote that speaks to a concept called “The Honorable Harvest”

      “The honorable harvest is a covenant of reciprocity between human beings and the living world, and these guidelines were taught to me as a plant harvester when I would go out to pick berries, or to pick medicines, with wise teachers. This is what they told me…

      (continued in another comment..)

    • (..continued from comment above)

      One of the first things is when you come out to the berry patch or get out to the woods is You never take the first one. Because it might be the last one. It’s an ethic of self-restraint that has inherent conservation values. Different people have different rules about this – sometimes you don’t take until you’ve seen four, or five, or seven. But you wait. You restrain yourself.

      And then, if we encounter that next plant. you talk to the plant. Ask permission. You introduce yourself to the plant. Tell it who you are, what you have come for. What is it you need from those berries or from that medicine. If you are going to take a life, you need to be personally accountable for that transfer of life.

      If you are going to ask the question, you better listen for the answer. You can listen in different ways. You can look around empirically and judge whether the plants are numerous enough and healthy enough to support your harvest. There are also ineffable ways to listen and find out what they are saying to you. And if the answer is no, it’s no. You go home. You go home empty-handed because we remember that they do not belong to us. Taking without permission is stealing.

      And if you are granted permission, the honorable harvest says take only what you need, and no more. And this is a very difficult step in our materialistic, affluence-plagued society where the difference between our wants and our needs is blurred. We’re all encouraged to take everything that we get.

      The honorable harvest also says you take in ways that do the least harm and that do the most to benefit the growth of the plant. You don’t use a shovel if a digging stick will do.

      Use everything that you take. It’s disrespectful of a life that you take to waste it. And we have forgotten this easiest lesson – to have everything that you need is not to waste what you have…

      (continued in another comment..)

    • (..continued from comment above)

      …Be grateful. Give thanks or everything that you receive. In an economy that urges us to always want more, the practice of gratitude is truly a radical act. Thankfulness for all that is given makes you feel rich beyond measure, where wealth is counted as having enough to share. Gratitude pulls us into relationship with other entities, reminding us that our very existence is in their hands. And gratitude is humbling – an antidote to the arrogance of our time. It reminds us again, that the earth does not belong to us.

      The next tenet of the honorable harvest is to share what the earth has shared with you so we model that behaviour in return. A culture of sharing is a culture of resilience, that can endure these waves of plenty and scarcity that come to us.

      And lastly, and perhaps most importantly, reciprocate the gift. If you take from the earth, in order for balance to occur, you have to give back. We have forgotten this. Even our definitions of sustainability, are all about trying to find a formula by which we can keep on taking. We say our job as humans is not to ask what more can we take from the earth, but what can we give back in return, for the gifts of the earth.

      I don’t think what we need today is more data, more studies, new technology, or more money, but an ethical shift. A change in the story that we tell ourselves about our relationship to the living world. We need acts of restoration, not only for polluted waters and degraded lands. We need a restoration of honor. An honor that we can all choose in the daily way we live – ethics made in daily decisions. So when we walk through the world, we don’t have to avert our eyes in shame, but hold our heads up high and receive respectful acknowledgement of all the other beings, in return. And the reward is not just a good feeling. It could save our lives.”

      -Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer

  6. I have a question about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Whenever this conflict is talked about why is the Balfor Declaration never mentioned? When it is mentioned this mere “declaration” is treated like some sort of grand treaty approved by all concerned. As far as I can tell it was never voted on by any august organization or authority. Not at any time. To this day, I do not see any organization that has the authority to approve this barbarous wanton land grab.
    When I was in grade school, ancient history for most of you, aka, the 1950’s, I distinctly remember on world maps that small patch of sand on the Mediterranean was labeled Palestine. A brief reading of history says there were Muslims, Christians, and Jews living there in relative harmony for centuries.
    Somehow, in 1947, all of a sudden, the patch of sand became called Palestine became Israel.
    From that day till now, there has been an ongoing decimation of all those who do not adhere to Shabbat.
    In reading what little is available on the subject of the Balfor “Declaration”, I cannot find where the authority came from. It appears to be a mandate, displayed by a small group of fanatics with no moral or legislative authority. Nothing but brute military force to execute those mandated claims. How can this be?
    Would someone please explain how this small patch of sand where the religious beliefs of the three Abrahamic religions originated became recognized as land belonging to a very small minority of religious fanatics?

    • b

      Secrecy! b , no one is allowed to know the details.
      Sir Alfred Milner, the man more powerful than the King of England. Unknown to the world untill Carrol Quigley wrote about him in his book Tragedy and Hope.
      To have that answer to your question you must read and read between the lines and read a lot.
      Theodor Herzl, was the political theorist, and father of Zionism. Read about Herzl and the divisions within the Zionist movement. Inside the movement those divisions are where you”ll find the fertile ground that spawned unbelievable horrors. The group that funded the Boar Wars and greased the political groups that promoted similar ideas of Zionism, apartheid and fascism. Power and control by deception and propaganda. Colonizing, enslaving grabbing weakly defended territories on a ever shrinking world. Read about The Milner Group, The Kindergarten, and the Round Table group. You will come to Lord Balfor and workings of England against America and Germany.
      Easy does it b. It’s the beginning of some awful bad times that are still active today . In all that I pointed out, the answer to your question, is in there.

      • You are saying those who call themselves the Chosen have unilaterally decided they bought and paid for Palestine, closed escrow and took possession in 1947?
        Some of us have read the books you mentioned. Fine and dandy.
        So, if I come to the house you have lived in for a thousand years, armed to the teeth and tell you to leave and you don’t, I can kill a few members of your family? And it is all nice and legal because you were told you must leave?
        If you continue to live in your house, I can keep killing your family until your bloodline no longer exists?
        I again ask, where is the moral or legal authority for the Chosen to take possession of this property and kill the inhabitants?

        • b
          By your statements you show how the propaganda has you completely fooled. I hope you would not do such as that you suggest. You cannot do that morally.
          Those fine and dandy books, are full of history about who is the authority that creates the illusion of a Chosen. I assume you mean Judaism or Jews as Chosen? Yes they are being used willingly and Brainwashed willingly and are rewarded for loyalty not morality. Their legal authority comes from the barrel of a gun. That gun and the propaganda that is behind it, is a deception that insulates the Financial Capitol Royalists from any liability . Using proxies for Clearing the land by any means and creating the perception of moral authority was perfected in South Africa. The concentration camps and genocide of the local population was perfected there. Jews are all over the world and are not all fooled by the Zionist in Israel now or their propaganda, thank God.. They are not immune to other propaganda. It’s as Duck says, hym Myth. That’s why Herzl was backed to take the fall should it fail.
          That’s what power looks like b. That’s what power does and right now the plans made back in 1898 or so, than adjusted in 1947 by men, financially powerful men who thought large. Their chickens are coming home to roost and disciples of Herzl will finish the job of stealing the rest of Lavent and Palestine for some sick demented family of Financial Capitol Royalists that had some small affiliation with the wondering Jews and where willing to sacrifice if need be.. That power has been used on the native Americans of North America, South American, Armenians, Chinese, Russians, European Eurasian and North Africans. Hell b it was used on Americans in NYC on 911. These are bold, immoral men who think large on a world wide plan.
          These powerful men want to rule the universe as some Greek god would. They will not stop or change. Time has little effect on them, they are masters of perception and create the reality to maintain control through multiple generations. Read, know, be just b.
          So, as I suggested, know your enemy and the propaganda that creates the myth that redirects your anger away from It’s proper and just destination. It’s unfortunate that Palestine is suffering so cruelly. If it were my house b ….but it’s not. This country has forsaken it’s moral obligations set forth by two generations back and two world wars. We are forgetting b . At least Your moral outrage won’t get lost in this crowd. Good luck shaking off the propaganda in time to be of any use.

    • b
      “….Whenever this conflict is talked about why is the Balfor Declaration never mentioned? …’

      Because it draws attention to
      1) The fact that Jews came from OUTSIDER Palestine and did not suddenly rise up and get self determination…. but basically came as alien colonizers.
      This matters because 80 % of people probably have some vague notion that Zionism is some kind of nationalist movement from Palestinian Jews,

      2)That the British were trying to induce international jews to help them win the war (which they did, by helping bring in the USA and also by fomenting industrial unrest in germany and giving rise to the ‘stab in the back’ myth….uhm …’myth’

      • Yes, a very good summary of the history. The Balfour Declaration was in the form of a letter from British foreign secretary Lord Balfour to Jewish banker Lord Rothschild.

        Arthur Koestler (who was Jewish) said that Russian, European Jews came from the Khazar tribe.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thirteenth_Tribe

        Bibi’s father was Polish, Father was from Belarus. Very Caucasian in appearance.

    • “Traveling Israel” on YouTube has some good historical videos on this topic (as well as others like tourist videos and current events videos). I recommend them.

    • “I have a question about the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.”
      “Would someone please explain how this small patch of sand where the religious beliefs of the three Abrahamic religions originated became recognized as land belonging to a very small minority of religious fanatics?”

      Its very simple when you boil it down. Certain people with an agenda purposely mistranslate particular passages in the Bible, purposely ignore others, and read into the Bible nonexistent conclusions in order to pervert the gospel and deceive a majority of the Body of Christ, (the church), and thereby secure support for the creation of the secular state of Israel.
      I think that the provably false doctrine of Christian Zionism in western governments and the majority of the churches that the middle classes attend is one of the primary reasons that the anomaly known as Israel exists in the form that it does.

      The establishment of the state of Israel was an event brought about by men and which most so-called Christians attribute to divine intervention and design.
      There is no biblical justification for that conclusion.

      The Jewish people are considered by the vast majority of so-called evangelicals, to be God’s Chosen people who have a special relationship with the Father without having a believing loyalty in Christ. Again, there is no biblical justification. And is blasphemous on it’s face.

      I am fully aware that most of my fellow Corbeteers don’t take things like this too seriously. I think that those who are orchestrating this epic tragedy count on that.
      Bibi and Biden are but tools in the hands of principalities and powers that most people refuse to acknowledge.

      There is only one solution to the problems that plague humanity. And that is to stop trusting men and to place our trust in the One who created humanity.

  7. Have you heard of Galen Winsor? I had no idea of this person until I checked out a video Ben Davidson posted on his GooTube channel entitled “The Nuclear Scare Scam – The Real Cover-Up”. I’m now aware of the #NuclearScareScam which Mr. Winsor demonstrates to be through personal experience. Take everything you’ve every thought about the safety concerns related to uranium 235 and plutonium and think the exact opposite and you’ll have the truth. He goes on to explain that the 1979 Three Mile Island event was a false flag to instill fear. The lecture was recorded in 1985. He eats Uranium 235 in the video and describes that when #FERC started their campaign of lies that he set out to demonstrate they were lying.

    He begins his story with his time in the Navy aboard a ship as a radio operator headed to Japan and how the bombs dropped over Japan got him a ticket out of the war and from that point on he wanted to learn all he could about this technology and he learned plenty.

    What makes this scam particularly interesting is that virtually no one’s politics, religion or personal beliefs are challenged and all who see can recognize the huge impact this lie has created for humanity. As Mr. Winsor puts it, we should have a nuclear power generator every 10 blocks to produce virtually free power.

    I am providing the GooTube link and a link to the video on Bastyon because I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see the GooTube copy, with 85K views in 2 weeks, get scrubbed from their platform. Ben said when he posted it was demonetized in seconds after his posting.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this and would be delighted if this one piqued the interest of this community and James Corbett and James Evan Pilato to spread the word.

      • Thank you for sharing such lovely feedback. I’m amazed frequently at how woven the fabric of lies is that shapes the reality we have known and experienced. The best of all this learning for me is the realization that it all changes with what we learn and that our new understanding becomes the influence shaping a new reality to experience. Knowledge is truly powerful.

        • R.Snyderjr.
          This is a good place for this. I’d say this doesn’t help , in adding confusion of understanding the arms race, the nuclear weapons value . Or to who owns and who has their finger on the trigger. 1988 seems a transitioning year for the world and be when the PTSB came out of the closet.

    I tried way back machine, but haven’t found anything yet probably not gone back far enough.

    Is the info lost forever?

        • Beg pardon, my mistake 🙂

          • Oh no, you’re good. I was replying to Randallsnyerjr but didn’t check to see whose ‘reply window’ I was typing in; then after the 5-minute edit window had expired I saw that I had inadvertently replied to you. (How embarrassing, Lol)
            But anyway, a quick shoutout to Randallsnyderjr’s link, “The Nuclear Scare Scam – The Real Cover-Up – Galen Winsor.” Perhaps you’re already aware, but for me the issue remains a real eye-opener. Yet another layer of twisted lies perpetuated by those who fancy to believe they are our ‘governors’.

      Banknotes and Physical Currencies (Corbett video topic)

      I have used different paper and coin currencies as gifts.

      With kids I would give them a hodge podge of coins from different countries, or older unique U.S. coins like a steel penny or Buffalo Nickel or Mercury Dime.

      Just this month as part of a graduation gift, I sent a $2 bill with the other green bills. It was the last of my $2 bills.

      Earlier this year, I went into a neighborhood Coin Shop.
      Specifically, I was looking for something “mailable” in an envelope as a gift.
      Small weights of gold would work as something that could ride in an envelope, but they are way too rich for my means.
      — $1 Silver Certificates —
      The shop had them in a plastic shield, and the fella said he would sell them to me for $2.50 each.
      I bought ’em all, just under two dozen.
      I declined on the $5 Silver Certificates, because I mainly wanted a unique novelty with a high perceived value compared to cost.
      This weekend, I again mailed one of these as a gift. The year was 1935. Washington is on these $1 silver certificiates. I included a one million dollar bill which had cost me a buck.

      The shop had other paper currencies, but they wouldn’t easily grab recognition and interest with most Americans.

      I’ve mailed a two headed quarter before as a gift on several occasions.
      Years back, I bought about a half dozen two headed quarters at a magic shop. I’ve also mailed trick cards (e.g. three-card monte) as a gift.

      • Regarding small weights of gold that ride in an envelope, I have given valaurum notes (https://valaurum.com/) as gifts in the past.

      • Over the years, I have given away a fair number of these.
        My adult grandkids got one of my last ones.

        Dick Cheney was my favorite, but I had a lot of Bush.

    • “made up buildings …” – great observation!

  12. What’s on my mind at this moment after watching the subscriber exclusive video is this question, James: Did you know a guy in a business suit was lurking in the background, behind a bush, as you were talking?

    He walked behind you, from right to left, just before the 1:00-minute mark. Then, when he reached the end of the grassy knoll (oops, I mean the grassy median) of the walking path behind you, he squatted and remained in that position, without moving, for about 25 seconds.

    When you first mentioned the word “banknote,” he got up, turned in the direction he was originally headed, and walked off. (We can’t see his face; only his suit.)

    Next, to my surprise, he came back and knelt in the same spot, at around 6:25 minutes, I think. After maybe 30 seconds, he got up and headed in the direction from which he initially came. After walking behind your back, he never appeared on the other side (the right) of you. He just vanished.

    Despite this puzzling distraction, I heard everything you said and saw all the banknotes you showed us. The fact that both the old and new 1,000-yen Japanese notes feature two famous disease-discoverers is as eerie as is the stalker behind you.

    • CQ!
      You are quite the detective. I’m gonna put you up for a bonus and a raise!
      That’s so creepy!

      • CQ has the eye, had to go back to see…creepy in the suit

    • CQ,
      That is impressive! Great observation.
      Thanks for the time stamps.

      I wonder…
      Is the guy taking photos of the patch of flowers?
      He was carrying something with him when he first enters the scene.

      • Hey GBW, michelle g., mkey, HRS, your responses to the creepy “stalker” scenario made me laugh.

        We Corbetteers could create a crazy narrative, adding more scenes and developing strange plot twists.

        The action starts with a nature photographer in a dark business suit who might have a case of the runs . . . or maybe he’s taking shots of pretty flowers planted on the median behind the bushes?

        Whatever he’s up to, he vanishes into thin air.

        Where’d he go? All speculations–ahem, conspiracy theories–are welcome.

        Maybe James and James will sell our collaborative whodunit with their other merch @ NWNW.com.

  13. My wife and I have been home teaching for some eight years now. It’s an incredibly rewarding thing to do, but it does take time.

    We are in the fortunate position that we run a small business together, making jewellery, which allows us to tag-team on work and teaching, but it’s really a full time commitment. Because of this, it is fair to say that it’s a financial commitment as well.

    To anyone considering home teaching, I would recommend using the Trivium and Quadrivium methods of teaching. Instead of teaching subjects as separate entities, it’s a millennia old method of teaching ‘how’ to think, not ‘what’ to think.

    There are a few online resources that can be of help, especially http://www.triviumeducation.com offers some good direction. I have found, however, that much of the material out there is very much geared towards strict Christian philosophy.

    I have looked to find more practical tips on how to approach the different stages of the Trivium, but it’s often difficult to find. It seems that much of the online resources are not being maintained, with some channels having been scrubbed [..gosh, I wonder why?!..] and I come across a lot of ‘dead links’. It also is notable that some sites are very slow to load and others appear to be ‘down’ a lot. One could suspect there is a deliberate nature to these hurdles.

    I would like to ask anyone if they know of any sources that are more ‘secular’, so to speak, or any sources that cover the practical application of Trivium teaching. I would also be really interested to hear of anyone else’s experience in teaching the Trivium to young children (our eldest will be 9 in the summer), and would love to get some ideas.

    To anyone considering home teaching in any way or form, I would surely encourage this, and I am happy to share some of my experience!
    Wishing prosperity on all!

    • I was also looking into the trivium and quadrivium methods and the material availble looked scant. Which kind of indicates that this would be the way to go for teaching children.

      • Thanks for responding mkey 🙂

        Yes, I totally agree. I used to say that children should be taught how to learn, not what to learn, so I was totally blown away when I found out there was an actual method for this.

        I allow my children to learn at their own pace, so I’m kind of hand off in that respect. My eldest is literally eating his way through an ever expanding library. He loves some of the more juvenile stuff like Enid Blyton, but I’m slowly pushing him to ‘meatier’ reads like Mark Twain, Shakespeare, Animal Farm, Wizard of Oz, things that are a bit more challenging. He also reads a lot of non fiction, mainly history.

        I wish Gene Odening was a bit more detailed in recalling how his mum taught him grammar basics in a week. The interviews with unplugged mum are a bit sketchy on the details and I think some of the episodes have vanished too.

        I did get a hardcopy of de Sacy, A. J. Sylvester, Principles of General Grammar, 1837, which does a good job of relating the functions of grammar and explaining the nature and logic of it. However, I think the point Gene made, how his mum connected grammatical concepts to everyday physical objects, makes a lot of sense. I will probably figure out how to do this myself, and in which order, but it would have been nice to have more than a brief summary of how she achieved this.

        Are you planning to teach at home, or already doing it?

        • My interest for this matter was more in the vein of teaching myself, undoing some of the damage.

        • My search landed me in a few different places.

          There is a collection on the archive:
          https://archive.org/details/trivium-quadrivium-classical-education-archive

          “The Trivium: The Liberal Arts of Logic, Grammar, and Rhetoric” by Sister Miriam Joseph & Marguerite McGlinn

          “Trivium: The Classical Liberal Arts of Grammar, Logic, & Rhetoric” as collection of several authors: John Michell & Rachel Grenon & Earl Fontainelle & Adina Arvatu & Andrew Aberdein & Octavia Wynne & Gregory Beabout

          • that makes a lot of sense. school didn’t challenge me at all as a youngling, so i ended up not putting any effort in (I never needed to in order to pass, and when u finally DID need to put in work I didn’t know how to)

            I also felt that a lot of what was being taught in secondary was illogical, incomplete and often outright wrong. So that didn’t inspire me neither. In the end I left school with an IQ of 150+ and no qualification.

            I’m glad though, because it helped me reject the system from an early age.

            I just wished sometimes I was more able to self-motivate 🙂

            Thanks for the links! I am reading Miriam, but I will certainly look at the other too!

            Did you get something out of your quest?

        • The way i was taught (literal) grammar (the trivium includes using “grammar “ more figuratively) was to learn latin. That way you are USING the concepts rather than learning them in the abstract without any obvious purpose.

          My own view is that education normally benefits from both a pupil-directed component, but also grappling with ideas which present the right degree of challenge, so that people have the experience of finding something daunting at first and then find that with some effort they can grasp it, only to find it easy with practice.

          Intelligence is made up of a variety of mental skills, and practicing them from a young age transforms one’s thinking.

          i’d also recommend looking at Edward de Bono’s oeuvre.

          • Hi Jonathan!

            I agree that it’s important to make use of the things you have learned. Turning these ‘concepts’ into something physical, I believe, will help with the comprehension of those concepts. But yes, putting it to use is essential to cement it.

            I just recently got a short but detailed book on Dutch grammar, which we will be starting on. When my daughter has caught up a bit with speaking it, I think it’s time to start with classics.

            I like how you put it, overcoming the challenge is a great way of developing mentally and gaining confidence and maturity.

            Thanks for the recommendation! What age were you when you learned Latin?

    • Trivium Pursuit is the only one I’m familiar with, but it is definitely from a Christian perspective. (Reformed) Despite that, I think their materials are pretty good. I knew them personally and communicated with Laurie (the mother) before she passed away a few years ago. Their five children are all grown.

      I’m not sure how active Harvey is now in keeping up the website and business, but it appears to be up and running. https://triviumpursuit.com/

      I have some of their books (written by them or their children) as well as some they recommend, like Opposing Viewpoints.

      • I was a little put off when I came across this site, but perhaps I should look at it again with a fresh, open minded attitude.

        Have you used it to teach? I know everyone and every child is different, but I’m keen to learn if there was anything you feel worked particularly well!

        • The Bluedorns’ hearts are in the right place. Their children did re-enactments, making their own outfits, had lots of opportunities as far as animals, plus learned some Hebrew, Greek, and Latin, I think. I don’t agree with their doctrinal positions, although I do believe in The Book (Bible) they base their beliefs on.

          I started out homeschooling full steam, but then moved off-grid and with all the work there was to do, plus being pretty isolated due to distance, finances, and time, I became more of an unschooler. I read a LOT (out loud to my son), but I almost entirely avoided text books (unless they were old). We read history and science, learned some Hebrew, Greek, and Latin (with some trivium pursuit materials). I did use the McGuffey readers early on and also Saxon math books. We did a lot of chores and work.

          I would recommend looking at the materials offered by trivium pursuit and getting the ones you like.

          I really like Arthur Robinson’s homeschooling ideas, which could be combined with a specific teaching method, like Trivium. One thing I really regret not doing is the writing his children did each day. I think it would be really neat to have that to look back at, besides the benefit to the children at the time.

          Here is the Robinson story: https://www.robinsoncurriculum.com/more-than-a-fighting-chance/

        • I was also homeschooling illegally – without state permission, which was required in my state – so I was trying to keep a low profile and mostly stay out of sight during school hours. Now the laws have changed here and what I did is now legal, from what I have heard. I refused to comply with their requirements since I didn’t (and don’t) believe they had (have) jurisdiction over my parenting choices.

          • That’s really interesting, I like the idea of performing a story. I’m going to look into that. My daughter is only 5 so I’m going to have a look at what plays are suitable. My partner, she wants to teach them sewing, so that really works with that.

            Unfortunately, we are still renting a small place here in the UK. Not enough room for keeping animals. Lockdown killed our finances and nearly our business. I would love to go off grid, but that is still a ‘distant future’. Working on it…. 🙂

            So did you teach practical skills? Growing food, making and mending? We get the children into our jewellery workshop and let them make stuff sometimes. It’s not as often as I would like to, though, our business is our most demanding child haha. Many times I need to prioritise jobs and ‘let the children be’. We unexpectedly (I swear!) added a, now full-on climbing, crawling, grabbing-everything, toddler to the mix, which adds additional challenges to planning.

            I never really looked at the different home teaching styles, I kind of follow my heart, I guess. My wife likes to use these maths workbooks for children, but I’m not keen on them. It helps her teach though, which I can’t knock her for.

            Myself, I use learning opportunities in every day life. Arithmetic, history, science, biology and language have a funny way of popping up doing all-sorts. I do make them write cursive frequently. I’m trying every day, but it doesn’t always happen.

            I definitely want them to learn one classic language, if not all three. The eldest is fluent in Dutch and I’m trying to get the middle one to speak it more, so I’m holding it off for the next few months at least, until she is more confident. She is asking the right questions, so it just a matter of time [me praying….]

            Brave thing, you did! I feel the same way and I especially am not willing to subject them to the sort of ‘teaching’ that is the norm here. I certainly don’t want them to endure the bullying and peer pressure that I’m witnessing the results of in local children here.

            Here the freedom to teach seems to be in reverse now. I guess, because it’s becoming more popular, there is an agenda that’s trying to stop it in its tracks.

            Can I ask, is your son happy about your teaching choices? And is he doing something independent, as a result?

      • Thanks! I’m going to check this out 🙂

        Did you teach him yourself, or did your son attend regular school?

        • On a recommendation, my son (and I) went to a private school for an hour or two one day to see if he should attend there. We kind of got kicked out of class. I’m not sure exactly what was going on there. Maybe the teacher was nervous, being observed. Anyway, that’s the only time he ever went to school. 🙂

        • This isn’t exactly what you’re talking about, rebel.soul, but the hosts at The Free Thought Project have just launched their first book in what they hope will be a series called “The Little Free Thinker.” See https://littlefreethinkers.com

          • Thanks CQ, I’m going to look at that!

    • Home Education

      check out Richard Andrew Groves’ stuff. He does some courses nowadays, covering the trivium and more general life skills, but you can see and join in his journey to the trivium by going through his “Peace Revolution” podcasts, which are outstanding, cover an immense amount of material, but are lengthy.

      Richard is an impressive autodidact; but it was partly my slight frustration at his perception of the trivium that prompted me to start my own Substack. I see the trivium as part of the evolution of mental tools which we have accrued over the centuries, the collection of which we call “science “ (the method, not the body of knowledge or an institution).

      My most relevant article is “Coping with Disagreement and Being Wrong” (a terrible title)!
      https://open.substack.com/pub/whatdoino/p/copy-coping-with-disagreement-and?r=18p2zc&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web

      i’m a big fan of home-schooling. There’s an organisation in the UK which should be able to help you with resources, called Education Otherwise.

      • I’d also recommend Pimsleur courses for learning foreign languages. Firstly you end up being able to speak rather than just write. Secondly the way that they revisit new ideas after minutes then days then weeks (i’m explaining very briefly and inaccurately) is structured to correspond to the way that memories are laid down, and noticing this enables you to apply it to completely different learning.

      • Yes, I know Richard’s work and his websites well. Some of his work is featured on www. triviumeducation.com in fact, including a podcast with him, James Evan Pilato and James Corbett, which brings me much joy!

        To be honest, the Trivium and Quadrivium, as beautiful as these methods are, were never meant to lift the masses out of ignorance. Much effort was spent to keep them exclusively for those in power, or at least to teach them only where it would benefit them.

        But regardless of this, they are beyond doubt the best tools we developed to help build minds that can progress thought and generate comprehension and wisdom.

        That’s a good read, btw. Bit long, so I’ll have to read in stages. I’ll be looking at what else you have brewing.

        I forgot about pimsleur! I’ve used them in the past, when I was still living in Holland. Thanks!

  14. I have been expressing for decades that the jewish lobby groups, especially AIPAC will be the ramrod for Noahide Law implementation in America. Now, Donald Trump (the MAGA Savior) is suggesting the death penalty for “antisemitism” (which simply means any noticing at all must be shut down and dealt with).

    Thoughts?

    • Mr. MAGA also brags about his “vaccine” as well. He revealed himself already even before that, but people gave him a pass.

      I think the problem is that people believe that force and tyranny is okay as long as they get what they want during the process. If it’s communism, tyranny is okay. If it’s forced medical procedures, “vaccines” or forced sterilizations or whatever, no problems. . And if it’s Noahide laws (theocracy) as long as it’s their religion, tyranny is fine and dandy. Many people who call themselves Christians are just fine with that. They were fine with the Inquisition so they’ll be okay with Noahide laws.

      Many people are a bunch of hypocrites and when they are confronted with it, are unable to see beyond their own biases.

    • Also, what does “antisemitism” or “racism” mean? And do people have a right to be racist?

      I think that people have the right to say what they want and hold prejudice and even be racist so long as they don’t hurt other people with violence.

      • cu.h.j
        Ok my dear. I have to ask you a question. ” How many ways can you hurt people without violence?” Some emotional hurts are like physical assaults. Not violent but just as triggering to counter attack. Does bating fall under the free speech exemptions ? It is toxic and where is the line to be drawn?

        • Some words do hurt very much, especially when someone is a child and has no choice but to endure. I speak from someone who was hurt emotionally as a young child with words rather than physical violence. I had some bullying experiences too which were awful and some of that was physical but compared to what some have endured, my life as been a cake walk.

          I know words can hurt but they can be countered with other words of kindness to reach people who have the ability to hear. They can also be countered with logical debate. Debate is critical for dispute resolution.

          Many things are context specific and nuanced so let me explain. What I was referring to is that adults have a right to speak their mind and no government has the right to limit speech. What is speech? Does it include tone of voice, words used? Does it include body language?

          In my adult life, I’ve been called names and had some of the most awful insults hurled at me but I have a choice to listen and take it to heart. Sometimes I’m able to discern that hateful speech comes from a place of pain, anger and fear and actually trying to listen with one’s heart can turn a negative situation into a positive one (sometimes). Sometimes I don’t have the patience and put up my boundaries.

          There’s a topic called “non violent communication” and it’s very good. If people are yelling and screaming and spouting hate, sometimes the best thing to do is walk away and put up a safe boundary or end the interaction. “I am done talking about this” is a good way to close a dialogue.

          You mean bating, gas-lighting? It depends. The MSM does this all the time, working people up into a frenzy. I don’t think people should fall for it but do they have a right to do it?

          What do you think?

          Also, most communication is non verbal-eye contact, tone of voice, facial expressions, etc. One soul to another.

        • You also ask

          “Does bating fall under the free speech exemptions ? It is toxic and where is the line to be drawn?”

          Bating, like manipulating someone into an argument?

          Sometimes explicit communication used in non violent communication can break down some of the miscommunication.

          A lot of “hate speech” comes from pain and legitimate frustration but inability to focus the energy productively and look at the situation from a place of calm.

          Also sometimes expressing vulnerability will cut through the anger.

          One might say:

          “When you said this, my feelings were hurt and I’m open to talking without the insults, etc.” “Are you meaning to convey X,Y. Z” etc.

          Just trying to give examples. I’m not even sure I’m understanding the question since I can’t see your facial expressions, so maybe I’m totally off.

        • I suppose if we are working out boundaries for speech, it would necessarily included discussions about private property and law.

          What about slander and lies? Does someone have a right to lie publicly?

          The MSM lies all the time with impunity with zero consequence.

          • cu.h.j
            Baiting, ISS, did not edit that.
            I was zoned out and not at all clear where I was going with that except to say Im a bit worried over the Zionists putting their hands on our 1st amendment. I was thinking of liability for baiting, or yelling fire in a crowed theater. Panicking a person, pranking and abusing. My thought is I remember a kinder and more civil behaviour in public. It was rare to see disruptions to the peace, much less violence. Now it’s a fight over every little thing. That has to be a manufactured agenda. Thanks for your thoughts.

            • Yeah, they sure are trying to do away with freedom of speech because they know how powerful words are.

              That is why I think it is good to use words wisely.

              People do behave atrociously nowadays. People are rude and thoughtless rather than polite and contemplative.

              I just wonder about the yelling fire in a crowded theater idea. I remember learning about that infringement. Like who does that?

              I suppose there are people who would do that, but then in a more liberty minded society there’d probably be more consequences for doing that. Not trying to invoke someone else’s harm, especially if it can cause death should be common sense, right?

              I know words can lead to violence sometimes but the wiser person will be able to avert this. The stronger person walks away.

        • One more thing, you said “Some emotional hurts are like physical assaults.”

          I would say that depends. I’ve experienced physical violence too with a broken bone. That was the worst pain I have ever felt, hands down. I will take a verbal battering over a broken bone any day of the week.

    • rbuse
      “….. is suggesting the death penalty for “antisemitism” (which simply means any noticing at all must be shut down and dealt with).
      Thoughts?………………….”

      An Anti semite was once someone who Hated jews…. Now its anyone a Jew Hates. 😉 lolol

      Its actually not good news for Jewish power if they need to pass laws- back in the 90’s they would pretty much boast about their cultural and political power in Movies and shows and documentaries (“An Empire Of Their Own” especially)

      When you need to start making LAWS to stop people noticing things its not a good sign for how much power you REALLY have, or at least how long you WILL have it.

      Its like when people start getting shrill because they know their position is weak…….on the other hand the Anti_antisemitism Bill does use Civil Rights Law to give a foreign body power to define whats acceptable opinion (and they already state that just saying REAL things like ‘jews have lots of power’ is NOT OK) so its probably going to be a nuisance in the future.

    • Can you provide a reference to the Trump suggestion of death for antisemitism? I could only find a story where he said the alleged perpetrator of a hate crime should get the death penalty. Thanks.

  15. i saw a vid from David Rogers Webb about section 8 of the UCC code and the derivatives market. i cant get a firm number on the total amount, 2-4 quadrillion and how that pans out for people invested via 401k and pensions or investments? Anyone hear about The Great Taking?

    • Yes, michelle g., doubtless a number of Corbett members have seen David Rogers Webb’s video, though I’m not sure why no one responded to you yet. Maybe it’s because the topics being discussed in this thread are ALL OVER the place!

      Did you download the PDF of Webb’s book from the website https://thegreattaking.com? It’s well worth the read.

    Steve Smith hasn’t been around in a while.
    I know that he was wrestling with a health issue.

    During the Pandemic era, Debra.B had all kinds of really tough body issues. She even said that she may not be long for this world.

    There are others.

    • Yeah, I’ve wondered how Steve is doing. I know what happened with the former member Arby (I think that’s what’s his name was here) and it was very upsetting.

        • I know he has made other comments as well. He was very upset and traumatized due to the scamdemic and was worried about losing his housing (I think) which I think precipitated things.

          It was awful because he was a motivated activist. He staunchly supported the “no virus” issue. He was passionate about his beliefs and trying to make his mark on the world. He also said he was a Christian believer and spoke passionately on that as well.

          I think many people posted supportive comments but he took drastic measures and ended his life. I was stunned. I am always stunned when someone in good physical health does something like that. He could have done so much more with his life. It’s just terrible (for lack of a better word).

    • I remember Mohawk Man who was saying that he was going alone into a winter. But it does look like quite a lot of old comments are now gone. Maybe former members comments haven’t made it after the site upgrade.

      • mkey says:
        “But it does look like quite a lot of old comments are now gone. Maybe former members comments haven’t made it after the site upgrade.”

        I noticed that also, but on the flipside some former members comments are still there.
        There may be other factors involved, such a request from former members or their relatives.

        “Debra.B” is missing, but “I Shot Santa” is there.

        • HRS,

          I remember fondly (and miss) not only MBP/nosoapradio and Debra B. and I Shot Santa, but also the musician from Brazil who used to banter with MBP (his name escapes me at the moment) . . . and the woman who had been ritually abused as a child.

          Anyone recall her name? At one point she provided a link to her weebly site, which featured art pieces, including a beautiful illustration of a young child sitting above a lovely lit-up city. I saved a screen shot of that painting, and whenever I see it scroll by on my monitor I think of her.

          We also haven’t heard from Animals Aren’t Food in quite a while.

          And a guy who went by three uppercase initials beginning with “F.” Maybe “FIW”?

          It’s nice to be part of this caring community of Corbett Report commenters. Even if some names are lost in the recesses of my memory, the warm feelings will never disappear.

            Victoria was her name. Going by my own hazy memory, I think she was living around Albuquerque, New Mexico. She had problems with allergies and sensitivities to substances, and was diagnosed with MS in 1995.

I’m glad I took time to reread it to see that YOU are Steve. Yay! Glad you’re still hanging out both here and presumably at the west coast of Florida boat docks.

            Thanks CQ, I love the Corbett Report community. I’ll be hanging out here as long as the eyes and fingers still work.
            Not able to hang out at the docks much anymore. More of a backyard garden kind of existence now. But I love that too.
            I’m truly blessed.

            • Yes, I know you feel blessed, Steve. How do I know this? Because you share your blessings with us.

              I admire your bravery. You freely and frankly (but also kindly) express your thoughts about sensitive subjects that I refrain from commenting on. Please know that at least one person is nodding vigorously in agreement whenever they read what you write.

    However, over a month later, the film is still seeking distribution, as several of the screening’s attendees told The Hollywood Reporter that Megalopolis will face an uphill battle. One distributor said, “There is just no way to position this movie,” while another noted that while “everyone is rooting” for the director, “there is there is the business side of things.”

    • Thanks for your stellar reporting, HRS. I well remember Shoestring.

      What would we do without you? You deserve a “True News” Lifetime Award from James!

  19. Dear James, I’ve been thinking about Larry Fink’s involvement with the Fed. Seeing how the economy has not collapsed yet, despite many warnings by various economists and YouTubers , I was wondering if Fink actually saved the dollar or delayed the collapse by his “going direct”. It seems to me that we have a new baseline for prices. I predict that Wages will gradually catch up . I was also thinking that although it did cause inflation, maybe flooding the economy with new money was the only solution to the economic crisis caused by the Covid lockdowns. Did the US manage to hang on to global dominance by these measures? What say you? I’d love a video or podcast on the current economic situation, high inflation and strong economy.

    • These people are well versed in propping up zombie economies. They can milk the suckers for decades longer, easily.

  22. Max Igan is doing a Croatian tour, and has one event scheduled in Bosnia. Two ecellent ladies from Zadar organized everything and managed to drag Max around, kicking and screaming.

    He’s doing has usual walk/standing and talks.

    Considering there was almost no marketing and not many people besides those who follow his work were aware, the venues were quite decently full. That was a modicum of surprise for me, I was kind of expecting an empty hall on the past saturday.

    Not many younger people attended, though. Hardly anyone below 40, which is “young” only to the older folk.

      • Just to set the record straight, Slobodni Podcast hosted by Andrija Klaric is not going to be shown on national TeeVee, not for a while at least.

        I think Max or some of his people confused this podcast with a TV show hosted by Kresimir Misak. That fella covers a wiiiide array of topics in the Zagreb studio, much to incredulity of Davide Icke who could not believe that type of stuff goes on air on the national television.

        I don’t know how Kresimir does it, I guess he’s just earned too much respect for them to shut him down. I am not aware that there is any other nationally broadcast show hosting antivaxxers, tin foil hat wearing lunatics and lizard people and chemtrail observers.

        Andrija is also doing very nice work, I think he is up to almost 80 interviews by now. More astute readers and watchers of the Corbett report will be aware that James also was one of Andrija’s guests, about 6 months ago. Give or take a fear and paranoia riddled eon or two.

        Andrija rose to prominence during the plandemic as a gym owner who, for a short spell, refused to stay shut down. He, however, could not genuflect sufficently when the cops shown up to shut him down permanently. So I do have some reserves toward this fella. Memory is a curse at times.

        I’ll have to check out the ATMA podcast, kind of aware of it but not sure that I watched any of their content.

        • Mkey
          Wow that was very interesting. Max Igan rang a lot a bells in my belfry.
          I need to learn Hungarian to better describe my life long companion; intuition. I call it “Jeeves” for lack of a better word to describe it and it’s 78% forecasting accuracy.
          Where has Igan been hiding all these years and why haven’t I ever heard of him?
          Croatia sounds better than you let on Mkey. Is it a secret, a Mecca for ex-pats like Texico? Andrija a typical Croate? No wonder !

          • Mkey,
            Opps, I meant Ines Zizic. Not Andreja. He probably looks like you but hardly as amicable as your fine self.
            I still wonder why Igan never got on my radar? Ines gave a great interview.

            • Max has been rather censored for a long while, so no wonder he’s not been on your radar. And he’s not really trying to do this work for a living. I’m pretty confident that he’ll net no funny money from this tour.

              Ines, I believe, is Bosnian. There are three peoples with a lot of shared history here. Were it not for politicians and stupidity, there would have been a lot less strife.

              Max has developed this idea of Croatia as some sort of a mecca, but that’s quite ingenuous of him. I think he really wants to give people something to hope for.

              Generally, there are advantages to a relatively small homogenous population. The problem is we are down almost a million in 30 years, with good reason.

  23. Not really surprising, but I give this propaganda a perfect score, thanks to the related articles links on the side and bottom. Are they building a narrative? Extensive expensive narrative.

    “There is an important anti-geoengineering legal movement afoot. It is being spearheaded by Reinette Senum. Reinette Senum is the former mayor of Nevada City, CA. Shortly after being elected to a third term, Reinette stepped down in 2020 because she refused to participate in the blatant and widespread government corruption associated with the Covid plandemic. This is a woman of great intellect, experience and integrity.

    “Since then, Reinette has been applying herself to the fight against SRM geoengineering as well as toxic conventional cloud seeding activities. She has been coordinating an evolving legal effort that ultimately seeks to shut down these incredibly destructive programs. Reinette took the time to sit down with me for about a half-hour in order to give us an update on her team’s efforts.”

        “Caught my eye” nice one.

        And you’re correct. Some people get very uncomfortable when the plandemic is brought up, like they want to pretend it never happened, or is insignificant somehow.

      Feeding Broiler Litter to Beef Cattle

      April 18, 2024 – LA Times – By Susanne Rust
      Avian flu outbreak raises a disturbing question: Is our food system built on poop?
      ~~WWW latimes.com/environment/story/2024-04-18/avian-flu-outbreak-raises-a-disturbing-question-is-our-food-system-built-on-poop
      EXCERPT
      Poultry litter consists of manure, feathers, spilled feed and bedding material that accumulate on the floors of the buildings that house chickens and turkeys. It can contain disease-causing bacteria, viruses (including H5N1), antibiotics, toxic heavy metals, pesticides and even foreign objects such as dead rodents, birds, rocks, nails and glass.

      As of 2016, arsenic is no longer to be fed to chickens. The poultry industry got away with exposing the American public to arsenic for 72 years. Years ago, a Doctor showed me someone’s hair analysis with alarming arsenic. The patient ate lots of chicken.

      • In the end, (please forgive the pun), I think the entire food producing cycle does actually run on poop.
        While its a really stupid idea to feed the litter from your chicken coop to your cow, or to use human and animal poop as fertilizer without composting it first, it is a really good idea to add both to your thermophilic compost pile. The compost pile that is made from virtually all of the organic material, so often misidentified as “waste”, that you produce on the piece of earth that you occupy and nurture.

        I have a worm bin that I use to process kitchen scraps. I use the worm castings, (fancy name for poop), to mix with the composted material for new plantings and to feed the plants and trees.
        I collect the worm juice, (fancy name for poop juice), mix it with water in a barrel and use it for gentle root and foliage feeding.

        So yeah, I do think that our food system is built on poop and decay, (which is poop too if you boil it right down). And that isn’t, or rather shouldn’t be a problem. But as usual, when big business which is primarily interested in big profits, hire people with big brains but little common or ethical sense to maximize profits by ignoring or perverting the lessons that nature has made abundantly clear and understandable, you end up with cows being fed their uncle’s raw brains and fresh chicken poop. And then you end up with death.

        You end up with humongous pig farms creating massive lakes of toxic sludge, (pig poop). Rather than lots of small local farmers raising animals for local markets and processing the manure from their livestock responsibly.
        You end up with giant feedlots where cattle are treated in horribly inhuman ways. Jammed into confined spaces in huge numbers and forced to wade in their own manure while they are fattened up for slaughter. Rather than local farmers raising healthy animals in humane conditions for local markets.

        Big agricultural along with their cronies in government who conspire with them to control and manipulate markets and prices by creating regulations that restrict people’s freedom to produce their own food in a less centralized way, are, in my opinion, along with their compatriots in big pharma, (and others), directly responsible for the decline in the overall poor health of modern society.

        • Your poop talk worked up a thirst on me.

          I’m gonna grab some Yeast Poop (beer) to quench me throat of all this shit.

        • Anarco Hippie,
          I appreciate your articulate and creative perspective.
          I agree whole heartedly with your musings here.
          It is important that we are thoughtful about where our food is coming from and shaking hands with those that provide it. This will keep our local food economies healthy. While simultaneously improving the health of the animals, their ecosystems, and the people who consume them. Responsible, respectful farm practices (including use of poop) can benefit all beings involved if done appropriately. Consciously transforming the energy through interchange and exchange. The toroidal flow.

      • Hi HRS,
        Thanks for the reply. Interesting that one of the bird flu symptom is an eye infection; and that the fella in Texas had that as his only symptom. Which I don’t believe is typical of the “regular” flu. Curious…

        Also, it’s absolutely disgusting feeding chicken litter to anything but a compost pile. Glad I don’t eat factory meats; only free range, well kept, farm fresh animals for this family.

        -Cheers, by the way! I’ll join you with that beer!

        Perhaps an agenda is Lab Grown Chicken…

        Tuesday May 7 – The Dallas Express – By Joe Edwards
        Will Texas Ban Lab-Grown Meat Like Florida?
        https://dallasexpress.com/state/will-texas-ban-lab-grown-meat-like-florida/

        EXCERPTS
        Following Florida’s recent ban on the sale of lab-grown meat, Texas finds itself at a crossroads and is considering whether to follow suit.

        As previously reported by The Dallas Express, two food production companies, UPSIDE Foods and Good Meats, were granted federal approval to produce and sell lab-grown chicken products in California last year. They were two of more than 150 companies globally that have been developing cultured versions of various types of meat, such as chicken, pork, lamb, and beef.

        Despite some scalability issues, the companies behind such products have touted them as more ethical, ecological, and nutritious.

        “[Cultivated chicken meat] has fewer calories and lower fat than an average piece of conventionally-produced chicken,” said UPSIDE Foods’ senior communications associate Brooke Whitney, per Very Well Health.

        In response to the growth of the lab-grown meat movement, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law SB 1084 on May 1, effectively outlawing the sale of “cultivated meat,” which was defined “as any meat or food product produced from cultured animal cells.” The bill imposes penalties for violating the ban and restricts activities related to the manufacturing, distribution, and storage of lab-grown meat, with exceptions for research purposes.

        DeSantis emphasized the importance of prioritizing traditional farming and ranching practices over what he referred to as “petri dish meat.”

        “Global elites want to control our behavior and push a diet of petri dish meat and bugs on Americans. Florida is saying no. I was proud to sign SB 1084 to keep lab-grown meat out of Florida and prioritize our farmers and ranchers over the agenda of elites and the World Economic Forum,” DeSantis said via X.

        Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller echoed the sentiment, expressing his support for Florida’s move and advocating for a similar ban in the Lone Star State….

        EXCERPTS
        Since the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) H5N1 virus was first identified in humans in 2003, approximately 600 cases have been reported worldwide, with a laboratory-confirmed case-fatality rate (CFR) of 60%.

        The recent death of a woman in southwest China who had no contact with poultry signals a potentially alarming shift in the virus’s transmission dynamics, raising the specter of human-to-human transmission, according to a report by the Federation of American Scientists. [LINK]

        Health authorities in Guiyang, Guizhou province concluded that two patients, including the woman who died, did not have contact with poultry before showing symptoms of the illness. Currently, the public health community remains cautious as H5N1 influenza viruses continue to evolve and potentially gain the ability to be transmitted efficiently to humans.

        The evolution of H5N1 over two decades necessitates an urgent and strategic response from the global health community. Scientific efforts are primarily focused on understanding the genetic shifts that facilitate the virus’s leap among species, aiming to forestall a possible pandemic. This has led to the controversial practice of gain-of-function (GoF) research, wherein viruses are deliberately engineered to be more potent or transmissible….

      But there are other aspects to consumer debt which are difficult to put a finger on. Pawn shops could be an example or the “Buy Now Pay Later” (BNPL) offers.

      The Missing Piece Of The Puzzle: Behind The Inexplicable “Strength” Of US Consumers Is $700 Billion In “Phantom Debt”
      https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/missing-puzzle-piece-revealed-behind-inexplicable-strength-us-consumers-700-billion-phanton

      EXCERPTS
      Yesterday we discussed the latest consumer credit data, which revealed that the amount of credit card debt across the US has hit a new record high of $1.337 trillion (even though it appears to have finally hit a brick wall, barely rising in April by the smallest amount since the covid crash), even as the savings rate has tumbled to an all time low.

      To be sure, credit card debt is just a small portion (~6%) of the total household debt stack: as the next chart from the latest NY Fed consumer credit report shows, the bulk, or 70%, of US household debt is in the form of mortgages, followed by student loans, auto loans, credit card debt, home equity credit and various other forms. Altogether, the total is a massive $17.5 trillion in total household debt.

      But staggering as the mountain of household debt may be, at least we know how huge the problem is; after all the data is public. What is far more dangerous – because we have no clue about its size – is what Bloomberg calls “Phantom Debt”, and we have repeatedly called Buy Now, Pay Later debt. How much of that kind of debt is out there is largely a guess…

      …But while it is easy to ensnare young, incomeless Americans into the net of installment debt where they will rot as the next generation of debt slaves for the rest of their lives, there is an even more sinister side to this extremely popular form of debt which allows consumers to split purchases into smaller installments: as Bloomberg reports in a lengthy expose on installment debt, the major companies that provide these so called “pay in four” products, such as Affirm Holdings, Klarna Bank and Block’s Afterpay, don’t report those loans to credit agencies. That’s why Buy Now/Pay Later credit has earned a far more ominous nickname:..

      …Still, cracks are starting to form. First it was Americans falling behind on auto loans. Then credit-card delinquency rates reached the highest since at least 2012, with the share of debts 30, 60 and 90 days late all on the upswing…

      …And now, there are also signs that consumers are struggling to afford their BNPL debt, too. A recent survey conducted for Bloomberg News by Harris Poll found that 43% of those who owe money to BNPL services said they were behind on payments, while 28% said they were delinquent on other debt because of spending on the platforms….

  31. Possible Solutions Watch idea to spread awareness.

    I modified a couple 3d printable parts for the old school GI Joe figures on Thingiverse to try and spread awareness of the work of The Corbett Report, The Last American Vagabond and Media Monarchy.
    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:6515487

    I am very much a novice, but managed this with free open-sourced 3d programs like Blender and free files someone else had made. I did little to no actual sculpting, instead using a displacement feature in Blender and images from each of their websites. Just imagine what someone who actually knows what they are doing and free time could do!

    Here is a video that is more of a demonstration of the displacement concept than a tutorial that I made.

    • That’s decent work. Have you tried printing one out? I’d kind of expect the detail is a bit too fine for printing out properly.

      • I did try and print some out on my resin printer, which can capture minuscule details very well. I had a corner peel off of the build plate, warping the parts but I don’t think it is an issue with the files as much as my printer itself and how I have the settings. Unfortunately I rarely have time these days to focus on printing like I would like too.

        • I wanted to get into printing many times, but there’s just no way in hell I could fit it in. I also liked modelling and did it professionally for some years, but that feels like it was during a previous life.

          I mostly did parametric modelling, though. More from a mathematical perspective insted of artistic. Recently I’ve had a few bouts with scad which is based on mathematics all the way.

  32. Using AI to create anti establishment music with video

    Although using AI to make any form of art does not particularly attract me, I must admit new results from the technology are impressive. And in this case, I think the usage is quit cool.

    This music video is by digital creator Yariv Hammer. Like me he is a conspiracy researcher and lives in the north of Israel, at one point I actually met someone who knows him personally though I never met him directly.

    Says he has ways of using AI directing it to his production needs as a music creator. I personally am not too much of a technological guy. So not sure exactly how to go about making such a video or any other form of directed AI art. Though maybe it is not too difficult to learn.

      Medical freedom vs. public health: Should fluoride be in our drinking water?
      Misinformation campaigns increasingly target the cavity-fighting mineral, prompting communities to reverse mandates. Dentists are enraged. Parents are caught in the middle.

      At the very end of the news video is Dentist/Activist Dr Bill Osmunson of Bellevue, Washington. He is a really sharp guy and has long been in this fluoride fight.

      Fluoride Activist Regina Imburgia flew Dr Bill Osmunson and Dr Paul Connett into Dallas for an October 20, 2014 Town Hall on Fluoride.

      Dallas City Council Member Sheffie Kadane bravely took the anti-fluoridation stance and you see him on stage.
      Of the 15 city leaders, on January 28, 2015 only Sheffie Kadane and Adam Medrano voted against the $1,060,800 contract with Mosaic to fluoridate Dallas’ water supply.

        Monday May 6 2024 – UNDARK – By Michael Schulson
        In Millions of Homes, High Fluoride in Tap Water May Be a Concern
        In communities across the U.S., water contains levels of fluoride some experts say could be harm developing brains.

        https://undark.org/2024/05/06/tap-water-high-dose-of-fluoride/

        EXCERPTS
        The town of Seagraves sits on the high plains of West Texas, not far from the New Mexico border. Nearby, water pumped from the Ogallala Aquifer irrigates fields of peanuts and cotton.

        Dissolved in that West Texas water are copious amounts of fluoride. The tap water in Seagraves contains levels of the mineral that many experts believe could have neurotoxic effects, lowering children’s IQs. The science on that effect is unsettled, and most experts say better research is needed. But nearly everyone agrees that at some point, high fluoride levels ought to be a matter of greater concern — even if they don’t always agree on what that point is.

        Many cities add low levels of fluoride to drinking water in a bid to prevent tooth decay, but the policy has long been controversial.
        Lost in that debate are the roughly 3 million Americans whose water naturally contains higher concentrations of fluoride — often at levels that even some fluoridation advocates now acknowledge could have neurodevelopmental effects…

        …But, at least so far, the emerging science on neurological effects is not reflected in regulations. Consumer notices rarely, if ever, mention the possibility that fluoride could affect brain development. Nor do they contain advisories for pregnant women, even as many scientists, including some federal government researchers, now say there’s substantial evidence that such elevated fluoride levels can be harmful to developing fetuses…

        …In a recent interview, Anne Nigra, an environmental health scientist and drinking water expert at Columbia University, described the evidence of harm as “robust” and “very compelling,” even at levels far below those found in Seagraves.

        “If I was speaking to someone from one of these communities, and it’s someone who was pregnant, or thinking about becoming pregnant, or who had a young child, I would certainly want them to have that information,” she said…

        …Last year, Nigra and several colleagues published a paper estimating that around 3 million Americans live in places where tap water has natural levels of fluoride above 1.5 mg/L. Those communities, the team found, are disproportionately Hispanic and Latino….

        Build a Bat House

        Comfort, Texas, founded by German emigrants, has a population of under 2,000 or 3,000 people.
        It is west of Austin, northwest of San Antonio and lies in the region near Kerrville and Fredericksburg. This region has a ‘Texas storybook nostalgia’ to it. The region has some very interesting history.

        At Comfort, TX in 1918 a Bat Roost was built. It still stands today.
        Standing 30 feet high, the roost is pier and beam footing, with shingles forming a pyramid shape. Only one dormer serves as a bat entrance; the others are ornamental.
        Bats fly in search of food during the night when mosquitoes are most active.
        In addition to reducing disease in the area, the design of the roost allowed for the collection of guano. The bottom is raised seven feet off the ground, which permitted wagon traffic below. Among other uses, bat guano was used to make gunpowder in the United States well into the 20th century.
        The former San Antonio Mayor Pro Tem Albert Steves had it built.
        Steves coined the name Hygieostatic Bat Roost based on the Greek words hygiea (health) and stasis (standing).

        If you search Hygieostatic Bat Roost, you will see an image and information.
        A fair number of Bat Towers were built in different places.

        Bat Guano ANECDOTE

        Almost 25 years ago, I bought some large bags of bat guano.
        If you have ever smelled bat guano, the smell will etch in your memory.
        The nitrogen content of bat guano is out the roof! The nitrates composition is why it was a great source for gunpowder. Gunpowder consists of charcoal (carbon), saltpeter (potassium nitrate or sometimes sodium nitrate), and sulfur.
        You can also imagine the incredible mineral content of guano from all those dead bugs.

        Bandana over my mouth and nose, one evening by hand I spread out the bat guano across our front lawn. I had to throw away the old long sleeve shirt and old jeans that I wore. No way was that going in the laundry room.
        Our house was situated in a nice, fairly affluent neighborhood with neighbors all around. In the weeks that followed, the entire neighborhood reeked of bat shit. A few neighbors made some comments.
        I must say…
        …the grass greened up like it was on steroids.

        Sidenote: A very high nitrogen content will ‘burn’ new seed growth. This is why corn gluten meal is often applied on lawns in the Spring to stop the germination of dandelions (for those who use non-chemical methods.)

  33. Just engaged in a court case with our county government. We are looking for some advice and media coverage.

    https://www.a4ll.org/community-reports/we-turn-to-the-judicial-branch-to-defend-our-rights

    Our county snuck in land use codes during the pandemic. We have been fighting them for about 2 years now.

    The link explains the issue a bit but we just filed a suit to ask the judicial system to force the county to follow the actual law and consitution. They have denied our right to referendum petition, which is a constitutionally protected right in Colorado.

    Just wanting to spread the word.

  34. I’ve been trying to pinpoint what it is exactly about the war in the holy land that has elicited such a visceral response from that part of me that had grown sort of numb to human tragedy over the years.
    I almost didn’t notice growing numb to man’s inhumanity to man. I think I even pretended that it wasn’t happening by shaking my head in dismay and speaking against the constant stream of evil news to those conveniently within earshot and then going about my daily business as usual.
    I’m ashamed to say that I had grown cold. Maybe it could be called learned helplessness or just becoming resigned to the seeming hopelessness of the human condition.
    But now, the extreme brutality and excessive cruelty of this war has rekindled a raging fire of indignation within me.

    But I’m asking myself if it is really the horribleness of war only that has brought me to this point. If I’m being completely honest, I find myself more moved and outraged by the Gaza war than I am by the arguably much greater numbers of lost and destroyed lives in Ukraine or that which governments and it’s tools have and will bring about with their plague ridden, stratospherically injected, eugenically directed dystopian future.

    I think that the ramifications of this war and all the associated and contributing factors are more significant somehow. Spiritually speaking. (I believe that the writing is already on the wall for humanity physically speaking).

    I think the main thing that bothers me is perhaps that the Name of my Savior is being impugned and maligned in the efforts of so many to justify their support for Israel’s despicable overreaction to an also despicable, yet infinitely less far reaching and not entirely unprovoked surprise attack by Hamas on October 7th. Israel, the same secular state that the majority of the evangelical church assigns a “special” relationship and position with God to that is not based upon a believing loyalty or faith in the Savior that took upon Himself the sins of humanity, died to redeem humanity and rose again from the grave to glorify humanity. That false belief, that one can be saved without trusting in the Savior, is an insult to the Savior.
    More importantly though is that by supporting the war in Gaza, the Body of Christ, the Church, shows a blatant disregard for the eternal salvation of not only those who have died without ever having heard or understood the Gospel. But also of those Jews who are equally lost for eternity if they reject their Savior. And why would a modern secular Jew living in Israel ever embrace their Christ if Christ’s bride, the church tells them they’re fine just as they are.

    Is the murder of an innocent committed by a member of Hamas any more heinous than one committed by a member of the IDF in God’s eyes? How ridiculous. Yet that seems to be the position of the church that I’ve looked to for spiritual guidance and nutrition for most of my life.

    WWJD? I thought that the church used to ask itself that question.

  35. At my age and in my condition, I can’t do much about all this. But what I can do is attempt to overturn a few misconceptions and call out some money changers among my local congregation. Maybe I can reach a few before they drive me out.
    I can’t keep silent. Couldn’t call myself a Christian if I didn’t speak out where it counts.

    A decade ago during our 9/11 group activism in Dallas around Dealey Plaza and “The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza”, I remember often seeing Robert Groden selling his stuff. The cops would hassle him, but not the other guys who were selling cheap JFK tourist newsprints.
    Around that time, I think that I saw a newspaper quote him as saying that he did not think that 9/11 was a conspiracy. But I dunno.

    I heard Dick Gregory give a talk at my central Texas college about 1973.

      Abraham Zapruder had three copies made of the film. He retained the original and one copy. Two copies went to the Secret Service.
      On the morning of November 23, CBS lost the bidding for the footage to Life magazine’s $150,000 offer ($1,490,000 in 2024). CBS News correspondent Dan Rather was the first to report on the footage on national television after seeing it.
      His omission supported the single shooter theory of only Oswald firing from the rear.

      Robert Groden obtains copies of the film…
      In 1967, Life hired New Jersey film lab Manhattan Effects to make a 16 mm film copy of the Zapruder film’s original version. Pleased with the results, they asked for a 35 mm internegative to be made. Mo Weitzman made several internegatives in 1968, giving the best to Life and retaining the test copies. Weitzman set up his own optical house and motion-picture postproduction facility later that year. Hired in 1969, employee and assassination buff Robert Groden used one of Weitzman’s copies and an optical printer to make versions of the Zapruder film with close-ups and minimize the shakiness of Zapruder’s camera.

    Narrativa Apocalypsa – The New Age Project

    [Verse 1]
    They plot, they steer, a world on the edge
    A crisis they conjure to seize and to hedge
    Exploiting our fears to tighten their hold
    Narrativa Apocalypsa, truth will unfold

    Crafted narratives orchestrated scenes
    Events distorted by deceitful means
    Twisting truth with skilled hands they ply
    Narrativa Apocalypsa, beneath a false sky

    [Chorus]
    Their unified vision a shroud of deceit
    Their illusions we’ll shatter, mission complete
    For every step they take in their power parade
    We’ll stand unyielding in the light we’ve made

    [Verse 2]
    Authority expands like a v it spreads
    Under guise of safety they silence our meds
    Centralizing power in the hands of the few
    Narrativa Apocalypsa, for freedom is due

    Freedoms restricted under watchful eyes
    In the heart of resistance spirit never dies
    Technological shackles seeking to bind
    Narrativa Apocalypsa a force of the mind

    [Chorus]
    Their unified vision a shroud of deceit
    Their illusions we’ll shatter mission complete
    For every step they take in their power parade
    We’ll stand unyielding in the light we’ve made

    [Bridge]
    Their propaganda machine in overdrive it spins
    we’ll see through their lies and break through their skins
    Economic transformation a tool of control
    Narrativa Apocalypsa, with heart and with soul

    [Chorus]
    Their unified vision a shroud of deceit
    Their illusions we’ll shatter mission complete
    For every step they take in their power parade
    We’ll stand unyielding in the light we’ve made

    [Outro]
    let the drums of rebellion echo far and wide
    As we reclaim our destiny with courage as our guide
    Their resistance suppression will crumble and fall
    Narrativa Apocalypsa, we will stand tall

    World’s Oldest Central Bank Keeps Sounding Alarm On Fragility Of Cashless Economies

    Excerpt
    “Put another way, cash does not crash. It does not fail in a power cut or seize up during a cyber attack (though, of course, ATMs might). By contrast, digital payment systems need a stable and continuous internet connection to process transactions. When these connections fail, the result is often chaos. Digital payment outages have caused significant disruption in a host of countries in recent years, including the US, the UK, Australia, Indonesia, Germany, Canada, Spain and Norway. Generally speaking, the more cashless the country, the greater the disruption.”

I think I was thinking of content you put out under the title of ‘Cyber 911’ and not ‘Cyber Polygon’. I wonder if you couldn’t give us an update on that particular ‘Great Reset’ potential agenda, however. Maybe you have, and I missed it. With these recent Coronal Mass Ejections and Faraday cages/bags once again in vogue, however, maybe it’s worth addressing for the Corbett audience. Follow up: do you use faraday devices, James, or think that’s a good idea re: ‘prepping’?

    I do utilize your site search function quite a bit, though, when I shilling your links when relatable topics are brought up elsewhere. I guess I was having a bit of a panic attack when I couldn’t find what I recalled being there previously (Mandela Effects aside).

  42. Dear Corbett,
    let me briefly explain the idea of TrueRepublic:
    For a representative democracy to function properly, the will of the people must be accurately represented. However, our current political system doesn’t achieve this, and our hierarchical institutions are prone to corruption.
    We propose a bottom up democratic approach, where decisions aren’t made by a select few at the top. Our idea, aims to technically enable what we call “proxy parties”. These political parties are completely controlled by their members, ensuring true representation.
    What differentiates the concept TrueRepublic from today’s digital voting solutions?
    1. **Decentralization**: The platform is decentralized and owned by its users, ensuring protection against data manipulation.
    2. **Domain Organization**: Users organize themselves into “domains,” which are encrypted spaces where identity is protected, ensuring that only members can participate. This fosters a marketplace of ideas and transparency regarding group preferences.
    3. **Moderation-Free Environment**: An economic model eliminates the need for moderation and censorship, while also enabling the decentralization of the network. Transparent rules ensure genuine will-transparency, while offering protection against spam and troll attacks.
    4. **Network Effect**: All users benefit from the network’s growth, leading to a self-reinforcing network effect that fosters the emergence of a democratic movement from isolated groups.

    The Abstract episode 29 “8 States BANNING CHEMTRAILS”
    By Peter A. Kirby

    “It appears that the issue of chemtrails and geoengineering is finally starting to go mainstream. This is largely due to the fact that Tennessee has recently signed a bill into law which effectively bans weather modification activities and there are 7 other states with similar bills in the works. For a thorough understanding of chemtrails and geoengineering, please buy and read the author’s book Chemtrails Exposed: A New Manhattan Project.”

    Exploring the many gifts offered by Paw Paw trees the in the context of Food Forest Design. This is Installment #6 of the Stacking Functions in the Garden, Food Forest and Medicine Cabinet series.

    Pawpaw is an unbelievable tree and fruit. Imagine a fruit the size of a mango, that smells like the most exotic tropical fruit. Cutting it in half reveals an incredibly sweet, rich, custard-textured flesh that has a flavor profile somewhere between banana, papaya, pear, strawberry and jackfruit. And you picked it from a tree on YOUR land! For our region, where winters can get to -26 C and heavy winds, it is a very special experience to have such a tropical seeming tree. The foliage and bark are not desired by deer or rabbits, so we find we can plant paw paw out with no browse pressure.

    The pawpaw is a cousin to the custard apple and cherimoya, the only member of the tropical sugar apple family living in the temperate north. Basically, the pawpaw is a tropical fruit tree that hitchhiked its way north as the continental glaciers receded at the end of the Ice Age. The pawpaw is now found growing indigenously, primarily throughout the eastern United States and very southern part of Ontario. This amazingly adaptive fruit tree has become so popular that it is being introduced into many other temperate regions of the globe.

    Paw Paw is an underappreciated and under-recognized tree. Within the bushcraft and permaculture circles, it is quite well known as an amazing tree to find, plant, and tend.

    One of the reasons that PawPaw is probably not more well known has, unsurprisingly, everything to do with the commercial viability of the fruits. PawPaw fruit is absolutely delicious but it only stays good for a few days after picking–so it would never survive the rigors of modern industrial agriculture. You can occasionally find it at a good farmer’s market, and it is well worth seeking out! You can also seek it out in the wilds. PawPaw is the only large fruit producing tree that grows wild in a north-eastern climate.

    This leads to the names for the PawPaw, which includes everything from Appalacian banana, Michigan Banana, Ozark Banana, Kentucky Banana, West Virginia Banana, to American custard apple, Quaker delight, hillbilly mango, and poor man’s banana. As you can see from some of these names, a bit of a stigma was once attached to PawPaw, which may be another reason it is not as sought out or well known. Such are the long term impacts of the type of food snobbery and big ag propaganda that I touched on in this radio segment (which I will link in another comment below for those that missed it on Media Monarchy last month).

    https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/japans-most-senior-cancer-doctor-covid-shots-are-essentially-murder

    In an interview published April 19, Dr. Masanori Fukushima, who spearheaded the first cancer outpatient clinic at Kyoto University and launched the first course in pharmacoepidemiology there, listed a slew of problems with the COVID mRNA jabs, evidencing what he called an evil “abuse of science.”

    He pointed out that “turbo cancers,” a kind “previously unseen by doctors” that progress extremely quickly and are typically in stage four by the time they are diagnosed, have started to appear after the jab rollouts. These “turbo cancers” are emerging along with excess mortality due to cancer in general, which Fukushima says cannot be explained only by lost opportunities for screenings or treatment during the COVID outbreak.

    As a tragic example of the fatal danger of the COVID shots, the oncologist shared the story of a 28-year-old man who was found dead by his wife when she tried to wake him in the morning, five days after he received his second Pfizer shot.

    “The doctor who did the autopsy said that when he tried to remove the heart, it was soft and had disintegrated,” Fukushima said. “And even just one case like this shows how dangerous this vaccine can be.”

    He pointed out that these severe harms, including death, have been afflicting people – post-jab – who have a history of good health.

    “It’s serious. It’s essentially murder. In the end, I want to state clearly that this is my view,” the doctor said.

  47. I recently had some good people from Kjipuktuk (aka Halifax) in Mi’kma’ki (aka Nova Scotia) email me and ask if I wanted to trade some of their homemade organic oat cakes for a copy of my book.

    They also considerately and illuminatingly said “If you prefer inedible currency, I’ll certainly understand and will send that along instead.”

    I (of course) opted for the edible currency and I was not disappointed! 🙂

    They sent me a sample pack with a bunch of exquisite variations on their central recipe that included seasonal locally sourced ingredients included in separate recipes, such as wild blueberries, haskap berries, raspberries, maple syrup, flax seeds and lavender! Each package has a unique message on the back side of the label that exemplifies and describes what the oat cake creators were listening to when they made that particular batch.

    These people are not only creating delicious oat cakes using locally sourced organic ingredients, they also print empowering, evocative, mind opening, informative, heartening and humorous messages on the other side of their oat cake wrappers, making them what I would describe as experts in “Guerrilla Marketing”.

    Check out some of the batches I sampled and the messages they had on the package in the pics linked below.

    The Money Supply Is Growing Again and the Fed Wants It that Way
    https://mises.org/mises-wire/money-supply-growing-again-and-fed-wants-it-way

    EXCERPTS
    …Money supply growth can often be a helpful measure of economic activity and an indicator of coming recessions. During periods of economic boom, money supply tends to grow quickly as commercial banks make more loans. Recessions, on the other hand, tend to be preceded by slowing rates of money supply growth.

    It should be noted that the money supply does not need to actually contract to signal a recession. As shown by Ludwig von Mises, recessions are often preceded by a mere slowing in money supply growth. But the drop into negative territory we’ve seen in recent months does help illustrate just how far and how rapidly money supply growth has fallen. That is generally a red flag for economic growth and employment.

    All that said, recessions tend not to become apparent until after the money supply has begun to accelerate again after a period of slowing. This was the case in the early 1990’s recession, the Dot-com Bust of 2001, and the Great Recession.

    In spite of last year’s sizable drops in total money supply, the trend in money-supply remains well above what existed during the twenty-year period from 1989 to 2009…

    …Since 2009, the TMS money supply is now up by more than 185 percent. (M2 has grown by 145 percent in that period.) Out of the current money supply of $19 trillion, $4.6 trillion—or 24 percent—of that has been created since January 2020. Since 2009, more than $12 trillion of the current money supply has been created. In other words, nearly two-thirds of the total existing money supply have been created just in the past thirteen years.

    With these kinds of totals, a ten-percent drop in the money supply only puts a small dent in the huge edifice of newly created money. The US economy still faces a very large monetary overhang from the past several years, and this is partly why after seventeen months of negative money-supply growth, we have only seen a slowdown in employment for the past several months…

    …So, in times of rising price inflation, central banks face two contradictory tasks: keeping price inflation low while also keeping interest rates low.

    This is where the Federal Reserve is right now. In spite of the fact that the predicted “disinflation” has not materialized—and CPI inflation is not headed back to two percent—the Fed in recent weeks has made it clear it has no plans to raise its target policy interest rate. Politically speaking, the Fed can’t let interest rates rise because the Fed is expected to prevent any significant increases in interest paid—i.e., yields— on government debt….

      Why Is the MSM Suddenly Pushing Fluoride Propaganda?

      [VIDEO of Derrick going over MainStreamNews]

      In this clip from TCR Live #124, Derrick Broze looks at 2 recent reports from NBC News which are focused on equating opponents of fluoride with “anti-vaxxers”. Why is this sudden push for fluoride propaganda happening right now? Does it have anything to do with the imminent ruling in the fluoride lawsuit? Find out in this important report!

  51. Got this in my feed, and thought it gives some confirmation that there is indeed Palestinian refugee people propaganda. Not only zionist propagnda. Have not checked it thoughrly though if at all that is possible, so maybe it is wrong?

    (Also, I think the UN is a evil criminal organisation instrumental in fueling a horrific conflict between zionism and the arab world, but generally they seem to be very anti IDF so I do not think they would make this up. And I do presume there are cases were some IDF soldiers exploit their power which is horrific, not to speak of the evil Israeli government on top)

    This week, the United Nations revised its estimate of civilian death in Gaza, cutting it by 50%.
    Today, they can confirm that 4,959 women and 7,797 children have been killed thus far in the conflict.
    According to i24, “The UN has acknowledged that its initial reliance on data from the Palestinian Ministry of Health, administered by Hamas in Gaza, contributed to the inflated figures.”
    These numbers can be verified on the website of Osha, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs – [https://www.ochaopt.org/].
    However, you will need to sleuth a bit to find those numbers. The front page still gives the number of casualties as 34,900+ according to the MoH Gaza (That’s the Hamas-run Ministry of Health).
    Scroll down the page and click on the May 15 report, “Hostilities in the Gaza Strip and Israel – reported impact.” There you still get 35,233 as a ‘key figure’ of Palestinian fatalities. But if you continue to scroll down the page, you will get to the actual breakdown.
    Note: According to the UN in a report from 2 years ago: [https://press.un.org/en/2022/sc14904.doc.htm]
    Civilians comprise 90% of the casualties in wartime.
    In Gaza, it’s barely 50%.
    Every civilian casualty of war is a tragedy.
    These numbers however indicate an extraordinary feat of care by the Israel Defense Forces, one worthy of recognition.

    • You’ve misunderstood Sunny. It is convoluted and complicated but it all boils down to the number of people that have been identified.
      There is no dispute about the numbers of the dead, except of course for the bodies that haven’t been unearthed yet.
      The change in the number is only because they are only counting the bodies that they been able to positively identify.
      There are still at least 10,000 unidentified bodies that are undoubtedly mainly civilians.
      Hope this helps clarify the issue.

      “No, the death toll in Gaza has not suddenly been reduced”

      “The death toll in Gaza has not been revised down by the United Nations, the organization confirmed, clearing up a report from one of its agencies that has been used to fuel misinformation about the veracity of figures issued by authorities in Gaza.”

      The 35,000 number provided by the Health Ministry “remains unchanged,” said Farhan Haq, deputy spokesperson for the U.N. secretary general, at a news briefing on Monday. A lower figure that appeared last week in a report by the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs represented the number of dead who have been identified.”

      “According to the Health Ministry’s latest official count, 35,000 people in Gaza have been killed, 15,000 of whom are children and nearly 10,000 women. Those numbers are not in dispute, Haq said, and the 24,000 figure from the OCHA report represents the people “for whom full details have been documented — in other words, people who have been fully identified.””

    Green Irony: Massive US Lithium Source Found – In Fracking Wastewater
    https://www.zerohedge.com/commodities/green-irony-massive-us-lithium-source-found-fracking-wastewater

    EXCERPTS
    The global, government-coerced transition into “green energy” has geologists scouring the Earth for new sources of lithium — the element that’s required for batteries, like those used in electric vehicles.

    Now, in a cosmic practical joke on environmentalists, researchers say they’ve found a lithium mother lode — in Pennsylvania fracking wastewater.

    It turns out that the Marcellus Shale — a long swath of sedimentary rock in the northeastern United States that holds huge amounts of frackable gas — holds huge quantities of lithium too. Justin Mackey and other researchers at the National Energy Technology Laboratory in Pennsylvania were pleasantly surprise when they studied the contents of wastewater dredged up in the fracking process at 515 sites in the Keystone State, reports Science Alert.

    [MAP of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York – Marcellus Shale]

    Long before the frackers showed up, deep groundwater has been dissolving the lithium in the Marcellus Shale for eons. “It’s been dissolving rocks for hundreds of millions of years—essentially, the water has been mining the subsurface,” Mackey told the University of Pittsburgh’s Brandie Jefferson.

    When they analyzed the wastewater data, they were stunned by the volume of lithium. The shale “has the capacity to provide significant lithium yields for the foreseeable future” he says. Their detailed findings were published in Scientific Reports.

    It’s unclear if other fracking hotspots have abundant lithium too. However, even using conservative estimates of how much can be recovered from the wastewater suggests that Pennsylvania alone could cover more than 30% of America’s 2024 demand…

    … The United States is way behind other countries. Here’s the 2023 lithium production leaderboard according to Investing News Network:
    Australia: 86,000 metric tons (MT)
    Chile: 44,000
    China: 33,000
    Argentina: 9,600
    Brazil: 4,900
    Zimbabwe: 3,400
    Canada: 3,400 (tied for 6th)
    Portugal: 380

    • @HRS

      Thanks for the heads up.

      While the apparently ecologically ignorant and clearly short sighted author of the article linked above seems to be endorsing and advocating for expanding fracking operations in the US (saying things like “Compared to that ((cobalt mining in the Congo)), harvesting Pennsylvania fracking wastewater sounds positively idyllic.” he neglects to mention how fracking will poison your drinking water, ground water, streams, rivers and soil (for farming).

      Comparing something that is super ugly to something that is ‘less ugly’ (when compared relatively and looking through an anthropocentric lens) does not make the second thing not ugly, it is just a manipulation of the mind technique.

      Anyone cheering for more fracking obviously has not lived near a fracking facility as the PR from the petroleum corporations sounds lovely until your local stream becomes flammable and the water you use for your livestock or farming becomes toxic (that has happened here in Canada, in the US and in Australia multiple times).

      For those that are not aware, the fracking process involves injecting a huge quantity of fresh water mixed with toxic chemicals — called fracking fluids — deep into the ground. Petroleum corporations routinely claim that these fracking fluids are harmless because they’re roughly 2 percent chemical and 98 percent water. But 2 percent of the billions of gallons of fracking fluid created by drillers every year equals hundreds of tons of toxic chemicals.

      Even worse, the oil and gas industry has no idea what to do with the massive amount of contaminated water it’s creating. Fracking fluids and waste have made their way into our drinking water and aquifers. Fracking has already been linked to drinking water contamination in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Ohio, Wyoming, New York, and West Virginia.

      Fracking poses serious threats to local water resources, especially in areas where water is already scarce like the Barnett shale in Texas. In the Marcellus Shale region, the most expansive shale play in the United States, 2 to 10 million gallons of water are needed every time a well is fractured. Because wells can be fractured multiple times, the total amount of water used for fracking is unknown and can vary by location and technology. In western states like Texas and Colorado, over 3.6 million gallons are needed per fracture. In 2010, 70 to 140 billion gallons of water were used to fracture just 35,000 wells in the United States, more than was used by the city of Denver, Colorado in the same time period. As of 2012, the fracking industry has drilled around 1.2 million wells, and is slated to add at least 35,000 new wells every year.

      Saying, “it is not as bad as child miners in the Congo” is nonsense. Cheering for fracking equates to giving the middle finger to the Creator and his beautiful Earth and spitting in the face of one’s great grandchildren.

      • Drilling wastewater is so poisonous, when a gas company that legally doused a patch of West Virginia forest with salty wastewater from a drilling operation, it killed ground vegetation within days and more than half the trees within two years. Wastewater from fracking has also been linked to livestock and family pet deaths across the country.

        Moreover, many chemicals used in fracking have been documented to have deleterious health effects at small levels of exposure.

        Some of the chemicals that comprise frack fluid are highly toxic and cancer causing, like Benzene, Toluene, 2-butoxyethanol (a main ingredient to anti-freeze and oil dispersants), and heavy metals. The Endocrine Disruptor Exchange (TEDX) identified 353 chemicals used in fracking, many of which can cause cancer and other serious health, even in small doses.

        Once the frack fluid mixture is injected into the ground it can also pick up or entrain further contaminants, like radium, a cancer-causing radioactive particle found deep within the Marcellus and other shales. Radium has a half life of over 1,000 years and is produced from Uranium, which has a much longer half life. Because Radium is water soluble, all frack fluid used in certain Shale types becomes radioactive to some degree.

      • One of the gravest threats posed by fracking is the contamination of drinking water wells, vital sources of water for many rural communities. Though the industry has attempted to obscure evidence of well water contamination by fracking, multiple instances have come to light.

        – In Pennsylvania, Colorado, Ohio and Wyoming, fracking has been linked to drinking water contamination and property damage. (See Propublica’s series of reports on fracking)

        – A Duke study examining 60 sites in New York and Pennsylvania found “systematic evidence for methane contamination” in household drinking water. Water wells half a mile from drilling operations were contaminated by methane at 17 times the rate of those farther from gas developments. Although methane in water has not been studied closely as a health hazard, it can seep into houses and build up to explosive levels.

        – In December 2011, US EPA released a 121-page draft report linking the contamination of drinking water wells near the town of Pavillion, Wyoming to nearby gas drilling.

        – An investigation by ProPublica found that years after their wells were contaminated by nearby fracking operations, EPA began to supply water to residents of Dimock, Pennsylvania.

        – In New York, claims have already been filed against the Anschutz Exploration Corporation and its subcontractors on behalf of nine families for the contamination of their drinking waterdue to natural gas exploration and drilling.

        – A scene in “Gasland,” a documentary in which a homeowner was able to light the water flowing out of his kitchen tap, made many people aware of the dangers of fracking. Scientific American also published a ProPublica investigation that found “a string of documented cases of gas escaping into drinking water – in Pennsylvania and other states.”

        – A 1987 report concluded that hydraulic fracturing fluids or gel used by the Kaiser Exploration and Mining Company contaminated a well roughly 600 feet away on the property of James Parsons in Jackson County, W.Va.

        In spite of the evidence, the oil and gas industry routinely claims that fracking has never resulted in water contamination.

        • Yep – fracking is “safe and effective.”

          There is a thread from prior months where HRS provided links to fracking sites and lists of chemicals used. I searched the lists for the PFOAs and PFCs and concluded that these forever chemicals are ingredients in the listed propriety surfactants. These chemicals are measurable in the contaminated water.

          • @jo-ann

            Thanks for the informative and thoughtful comment.

            I`ll have to add researching PFOA and PFC detoxing foods and herbs to the list of research items for my next book.

  53. Newsweek – New Study Links Behavioral Problems in Children with Fluoride

    Monday May 20, 2024 – Newsweek – By Pandora Dewan (Senior Science Reporter)
    Scientists Sound Alarm Over Drinking Tap Water When Pregnant
    https://www.newsweek.com/scientists-sound-alarm-drinking-tap-water-pregnant-fluoride-1902590
    EXCERPTS
    In a new study, published in the journal JAMA Network Open, researchers from the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine analyzed 229 mother-child pairs to explore whether maternal fluoride exposure during pregnancy has any implications on their children’s social and emotional functioning.

    “Our results showed that higher fluoride levels in mother’s urine were associated with significantly increased neurodevelopmental problems in their three-year-old children, especially for internalizing problems like depression and anxiety,” Tracy Bastain, an associate professor of clinical population and public health science and senior author of the study, told Newsweek. “These results are very concerning from a public health perspective, given that the majority of U.S. communities have fluoridated water.”

    In their study, Bastain and colleagues found that a 0.68 milligram per liter increase in maternal fluoride exposure was associated with a near-doubling increase in their child’s risk of developing neurobehavioral problems, including emotional reactivity, headaches, anxiety and symptoms linked to autism.

    This is not the first time fluoride exposure has been linked to problems in brain development. “In experimental studies, fluoride has shown to cause biochemical changes in brain cells and increased inflammatory reactions even at low doses,” Bastain said. “Effects have also been seen on learning and memory in studies in rats. “
    “This is all critically important for pregnant persons, because studies have shown that fluoride can cross the placenta and the blood-brain barrier, which can harm the developing brain of the fetus.”

    Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) – JAMA, published continuously since 1883, is an international peer-reviewed general medical journal.
