Episode 429 – Meet Elon Musk, Technocratic Huckster

by | Oct 18, 2022 | Podcasts, Videos | 65 comments

Elon Musk is back in the headlines again (not that he ever really went away). He’s going to save free speech on Twitter (honest)! He’s going to end the war on Ukraine (that he supported with Starlink)! He’s going to give Taiwan to the Chinese (and not just because of Tesla’s Shanghai factory)! Yes, Elon Musk is a WEF Young Global Leader and a self-promoting charlatan who would have amounted to absolutely nothing without unrelenting support from government and his globalist pals, and he is the next white hat saviour that is being set up to mislead the masses with their next hopium fix. But as James peels back the layers of this technocratic huckster, you’ll find that it’s even worse than that . . .

  1. This is excellent 🙂 laughter is one of the most potent medicines for the heart and soul.. thank you very much James.

    • Though I imagine I will not be laughing so hard when I have time to watch the rest of this episode as Musk is into some really shady, deranged and scary stuff (and you leave no rock unturned in your exposés). I do appreciate you making an episode focusing on this guy though, I have witnessed a great many people idolizing him in my immediate circles over the past year and tried to warn them what he is really about to no avail.

    • jwal
      Of Elon Musk alternative names “Lone Skum” is my favorite

  2. While I agree with what you say about MUSKY, is democracy better than technocracy? Seems that rule by the average is much worse!

    • Jwal

      Democracy in its modern form is a fraud…. it is a scam to hide who is really running things. The mass of people never have and never will run things, they lie of modern democracy hides who has power from them and takes what little power the mass has.

      Western Democracy is measurably LESS responsive to the people than some flat out dictatorships where people know WHO is to blame for gas prices and wars….. do you or I even know who is running the USA tiday???

      RUle by supersmart Experts would NOT BE GOOD unless those Experts SUPER MORAL (Bill Gates is probably smarter than you and me already…want HIM to govern?? Lol)

      What you need for good governance is smaller, more local, weaker government. You need to keep onto of your local officials, as our own Home Remedy Supply is doing with Fluoride.

    • Here… the US is an Oligarchy, one of t the worst forms of government. Link posted at bottom of post

      Like I said, you would literally be better off with a dictator then an Oligarchy, especially since a good chunk of the oligarchs have an active dislike, or even hatred, of normal Americans. They will literally pour money into drag queen story hour and trans kids and even petty stuff like ruining TV show and movie franchises
      or trying to make a Christian Baker bake a gay wedding cake…all because of that hatred.


      • Hey Duck, I was hoping you could share your thoughts on why archive.org would lock me out of my account and delete/censor my content on there. I think I remember you suggesting that I upload pics/articles etc to there. Well I went to check on a recipe with pics I had uploaded on there yesterday (a recipe for pine needle infused christmas tree shaped gummies) and it says: “This item is no longer available.

        Items may be taken down for various reasons, including by decision of the uploader or due to a violation of our Terms of Use.”

        I received no email to tell me why they did that and when I try and sign into my account is says “your account is locked”.

        Do you think there is any way to recover the stuff I have uploaded on there at this point? and what do you think their deal is with this weird censorship out of the blue?

  3. Very good report, quality as always.
    ALSO, the DOGECOIN pump by musk was a psy-op to de legitimize bitcoin and monero, etc…
    the average normie now thinks its about dog jpegs and celebrities.

  4. Thank you .. Thank you.. Conman extraordinaire. I generally like your solutions watches better.. but this needed to be done. He is a conman, nothing more. Great things to check out… how he left that wife in the video that he got that car. .. he wrecked that car. Impregnated his director of his one company.. went to silicon valley sex parties… and has the lamest show on his tunnel with Jay Leno’s garage.. total conman.. thanks James.. sending this to all the people who can’t find fault with this snake-oil salesman.

  5. We are, in fact, ruled by a Media-cracy! Calling it “democracy” is a euphemism. There are 9000+ bills introduced in both houses of the US REPUBLIC, not a democracy at all. Want to read them all?!? No one does. They are written by the corporations and “special” interests, not by your “elected” “representatives”. So while Musky is a predatory capitalist, the idea of “guardians” is 2300 years old from the greatest inquiry of governing ever made. Which is debunked by Juvenal and by Madison, Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? As long as the masses rule, the average will be manipulated by the clever

  6. Don’t see the references to Musk’s HYPEr loop scam.
    From thunderfoot
    He has many videos on it, and breaks down each technological problem.
    – Having a vacuum that can kill people around a vehicle for people.
    – Vacuum leakage with major problems the doors for entrance and exit.
    – Ridiculous engine ideas. Like movement by propeller in a vacuum.
    – problems like high speed instabilities are never addressed

    While bullet trains in Japan are already working fine,
    shouldnt that tech be used?

    • AND this idea is 3/4 of a century old!!!!!!!!!! Read Heinlein and others.

      • Heinlein was a fun writer but the dude was a total Pervert, as well as being g buddies with scientology Hubbard and if I recall right rockets American father Jack Parsons..so I bet he was probably means he was also into sick, weird Magick stuff as well as the Intelligence World.

        I used to think penis shaped rockets penetrating the sky for magic ritual was just crazy talk until I heard about Parsons doing sex magick on the launchpad.

        Maybe Musk really is multigenerationally weird….. look at Bezos rocket

  7. What jumped out to me in this episode is the character creation that took place with Elon. But not only Elon as James points out. Greta too. All this made me think about how this seems to be another tool used by the puppeteers of society. It has become quite noticeable in the last decade or so, but has been going on much longer, where characters are developed for political purposes.

    It’s like we are living inside a theatrical drama, and the social engineers are trying to tap into our imaginations and create certain types of actors/characters, or archetypes that we will attach to. Some of Carl Jung’s archetypal figures stand out as figures that have been deployed, such as hero, ruler, explorer, rebel, everyman, sage, and caregiver. Elon Musk fits the explorer archetype, as James eluded to.

    All of this ties into the Hopium idea that James also discussed before. A ‘hero’ is created to fight against the evil deep state…the Donald Trump character is deployed. The limited hangout to contain the escaping truths about our surveillance society is needed…the rebel/sage archetypal character of Edward Snowden is deployed. In the fight against “climate change”, its a child character, an underdog, fighting against the big evil oil companies. Vladimir Putin is another very exaggerated ‘hero’ character, fighting against the Globalists. QAnon is yet another type of character, or group of characters. Obama, another type of character.

    As Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage,
    And all the men and women merely players.”

    • Yes, groomed by globalist butlers and handled and swaddled by globalist billionaires and politicians, Musk was created, much like Mary Shelley created Frankenstein.

      Musk promotes the necessary capitalist illusion of upward mobility and good old creativity and inventiveness, a true individualist is he.

      You can be like Musk too if you just pay off your student loans and get a job.

      That is until one gathers information about the subsidies we as taxpayers pay him to operate failed companies for his own interest.

      This is classic socialism for the rich but with a new twist: Musk is demented and drunk on his own power and ego and burlesques all of us.

      He pays no taxes but gets the taxes we pay. You do not pay taxes when you get government subsidies like Musk does.

      Thus, he is a modern day pirate, huckster, hustler or just plain thief.

      While Americans slept he took over the entire US space program. They contracted it out to him.

      The parallels between Ford and Musk go further: Ford was an admirer of Adolph Hitler and practically wrote Mein Kampf (Hitler plagiaraized Ford).

      Musk we see proclaiming on twitter his right to “coup whoever we want to” when defending imperialism against Bolivia in 2019 and the death and killing of indigenous for their lithium.

      Same fascism.

      Musk is obviously CIA.

      His fame will grow in America as the country descends even further into shark ridden waters and people flagelate themselves looking for a Superhero to rescue them.

      Musk will be there for us: paving the way with our taxes in a venture certain, judging from the historical record, to benefit himself.

      This is trickle down economics.

      How it working out for ya’all?

      • I will say that you ARE right that Musk is like Ford in that Ford spent ages talking about how (jewish) communism in Russia was the terrible danger and THEN DID BUSINESS WITH SOVIET RUSSIA. Both loving Business more the political or moral issues.

        But your being kinda hyperbolic with the rest-Ford did not “write main kampf”…. Germany had plenty of it’s own issues with ethnic jewish Bolsheviks and with the ethnic jewish socialists who had helped to pull the plug on the German WW1 effort thanks to the Balfour declaration by the British.

        See “1924:the year that made hitler” by peter Ross range

    • Scpat
      “…living inside a theatrical drama, and the social engineers are trying to tap into our imaginations and create certain types of actors/characters, or archetypes that we will attach to. Some of Carl Jung’s archetypal….”

      More of a RITUAL drama in that case. The people with power surely do like doing things like the superbowl show and (as chris knows points put) the millennium dome show.

  8. Not your best James.

    This report is basically a mix of conjecture, appeal to motive, and association fallacy. “He’s related to this person so therefore” … “CNN did a puff piece on him early in his career so therefore” … “He was a WEF young leader so therefore”.

    Musk is definitely a tool and probably a narcissist. But the approach here isn’t very intellectually honest, as you’re starting with a conclusion and working backwards by finding circumstantial examples to prove the thesis.

    The intro was incredible by the way. Nailed the Youtube douchebag persona.

    • No, I disagree with your assessment. He went beyond association fallacy here and showed how Musk is directly tied to tehcnocracy by his statements and his funding research into the brain chip.

      It’s not just his familial relationship, or mentorship in this philosophy. When a child is raised by people who have certain philosophies can become indoctrinated into the same type of thinking, behavior and morality. Most importantly morality is in part shaped by parents and family. Tehcnocracy is not something that is desirable. It’s about control, like many tyrannical philosophies. So Musk’s promotion of it shows he agrees with control.

      Additionally, the torture of animals, the monkeys in particular for the brain chip is disgusting for lack of a better word. People who are okay with torturing animals is not someone to look up to. It’s really basic common sense. If people are okay with that once they actually look at it reveals a lack of compassion and empathy. That is not the type of leader to look up to.

      I thought this podcast was a good one actually. I did not know the details about some of Musk’s questionable endeavors.

      Your part about him being a narcissist is accurate though. I find most narcissists very shallow and untrustworthy because they often care more about themselves than anyone else and when push comes to shove will do whatever it takes to stay in the spotlight.

    • Thanks Mammique!

      So nice to read you here again!

      • Hi @nosoapradio! I’m not commenting much, but I’m still around 😉 Nice chatting again with you 🙂

  9. Great job James! Assembling all the show note links must be a task you don’t look forward to. Very thorough work and as you said in the end, maybe you’ll find your own conclusions (as one prior comment above seems to lean towards). I agree that Musk elicits a strong reaction from his followers because of his trail blazing maverick posturing. But a look at his history shows him to be a globalist flack. UBI is anti-human in my opinion. One must have sense of self-worth based on achievement and personal evolution. Neurolink/brain chips seem to me to be mad scientist material. Why not to improve on the brain given to you by nature through effort. Sure, give me free money and hook my brain up to a computer so I can learn 7 languages overnight sounds like fun, but after the Mrna scam do you think I would trust anyone in authority to not turn off my money if I posted the wrong thing on social media or to insert manipulative programming in my language learning app.? I’m just rambling but I appreciate that your videos always make me think.

  10. Question for Corbett (and anyone else)

    Is there such thing as a good billionaire?

    I don’t mean are some better than others, I mean are any of them good?

    • Octium

      “…Is there such thing as a good billionaire?…”

      Wrong question.
      The real question is “Is there any such thing as a Good PERSON?”

      Elon Musk and Bill Gates do not know you or me, if they think about us its the way I think about my chickens…. I like them for what they give me but they are not “people”. YOU are not “people” to them, and the kid dying in congo to mine Coltan is not “people” to YOU.

      You are expected to PRETEND that you care you really do not because you do not know any of those people.

      Point I am making is that people are NOT INHERENTLY GOOD and normally do what is GOOD FOR THEM.

  11. James Corbett as Johny YouTuber is just about as good as it gets. This is huge move in an advanced new career. Shame on me I had drifted from cynic about the suction pump Musk of PC Government funds for electric fail vehicles, to near fan boy.

    • I agree, this was quite enjoyable – a nice change of pace for James to make us laugh out loud, which I did several times while watching this.

  12. Broc West delivers once again. Nicely done!

    And on James’s side: This is probably one of the most important pieces I’ve seen this year! Great work, once again^^

    • mybeatenheart says:
      “Broc West delivers once again. Nicely done!”

  13. First, hello everyone!

    I am a new subscriber, (but a longtime corbett report viewer/lurker). I obviously wouldn’t be here if I didn’t like James’ work.

    But regarding this episode regarding Elon Musk, I wonder if this falls into the “Orange Man Bad” (space man bad?) fallacy.

    What was left out was how Elon supports the Dogecoin technology.

    If he is part of the NWO, how would a PoW de-centralized crypto which could be used as a currency help his agenda?

    I don’t think people can be readily cast into the bad vs. good mold without missing some details.

    Even billionaires.

    • Tara

      Your NOT wrong to say that it’s easy for normal folks to think Goodie Vs Baddie, because we have suffered generations of movies and TV training us to imagine that’s how power operates.

      Reading “The Populist Delusion” reframed my understanding of how power actually works…. we DO need to have, and support, elites that do not hate us but I would be kinda surprised if Elon Musk is more substantial then a Robert Maxwell. He can not buck the system that made him

  14. Loved it! Clever the way all these bits of information were woven together into an entertaining story, sprinkled with the usual bits of humor (and maybe even sarcasm) to balance out the horror (e.g. brain chips, planned dystopian future). As always, amazed by your creativity and standard of excellence.

  15. At the start of the Video I began to wonder…. Is Elon Musk making a trash Robot or is the Boston Dynamics Robot fake????

  16. betsy
    “…resemblance between Greta and Elon…”

    The Entities Possessing them are twins.

    More seriously, I always wondered about Trump and Boris Johnson having a similar look, like the media types thought that look was “in”

  17. Thanks for this James. The hype and scam that surrounds this character is not for nothing. He is being prepared to play a significant role. The effort to craft a persona that has so many “fan boys” as you call them (love it) is an investment, and when the time comes, he will be used as a pied piper, to “guide” his adherents into oblivion. What is so fascinating is that many of those who admire and will no doubt follow him believe themselves, and Musk, to be the only ones who can read the future correctly. They cite the fantasy of robots running the world as if it is inevitable, and they have already cast our current reality into the trash can of history. The tragedy of this futurism is the disregard for almost everything that actually makes us human. I was struck by the reference to his dislike of being on public transport. From my understanding, this gave a glimpse of what is probably a disdain and distrust of humanity. The problem is that, instead of sociopaths like Musk being recognised as suffering from a lack of empathy and an immobilising anxiety, we live in a world where that attitude is highly rewarded, and so common that it has been normalised.

    • Tony.C

      That attitude is normalized because it is the normal default for human beings. NOT being like that takes desire, effort and training.

      CS Lewis points out that a person who is gentle AND strong is a work of ART rather than nature.


  18. … but the W h i t e H a t s! Don’t you know?? Also all those 5G satellites are going to be used against the ‘evil doers’? They also will help people ‘ascend to 5D and restore the health of the jab’d people, and Musk and friends will build fleets of huge space ships which will be necessary to save humanity from a coming deadly solar flare and pole shift which would otherwise burn and or drown everybody, etc.

    Well, maybe not. It’s sad how we trust and trust and trust again. Lots of programming helped this along and still works like a charm.

    Live and learn… or not

    Thank you for this work up!

    • “It’s sad how we trust,,”

      I reckon we are trust, not in a particular thing, but the capacity & act itself.

      try to imagine not trusting at all. could one even make it through a day?

      Its sad that our faith gets stolen, or yes, sad that the same lie works over and over; sad indeed are the myriad ways that we , as trust, are abused.

      Perhaps then the game is to hone ones bullshit-machete, or at least, considering we are such a verb, take great care as you claim it.

  19. Blunt affect being a possible expression of those on the autistic spectrum that both Greta and Elon belong. Not a disparaging observation but a “matter of fact” observation.

    • might their nonplussed gaze be symptomatic of the literal synaptic dissonance incurring from having almost chosen hypocrisy as the winning ticket?

  20. So, not only was Elon’s grandfather involved in the technocracy movement in Canada. He was arrested for his involvement in the technocracy that was trying to “overthrow the government and the constitution of this country by force.” https://www.canadashistory.ca/explore/politics-law/the-last-utopians

    Certainly, the figure looms large for Elon (the mothers of his children all seem to to be Canadian). And I will note, that on the same day (or two) that Musk “supported Canadian truckers in the freedom convoy https://torontosun.com/news/provincial/billionaire-elon-musk-tweets-support-for-canadian-truckers
    Tesla “unveiled”their fleet of electric trucks (which would eventually be autonomous thereby making the Canadian truckers part of the “useless classes”) https://electrek.co/2022/01/26/tesla-semi-fleet-electric-trucks-unveiled/
    Something Yuval Noah Harari stated that Tesla would facilitate in 2017. https://ideas.ted.com/the-rise-of-the-useless-class/

    It’s not as if Musk’s legal title at Tesla is something cartoonishly, obviously, villainous like Techno King ( as in the monarch of a technocracy). That would be way too obvious. Oh wait, that is no joke, his title. https://ir.tesla.com/corporate/elon-musk

    Yes, as Mr. James Corbett is wont of saying. It is an “open conspiracy”.

  21. Off Topic, but what software do you use to make your videos? 😉

    • Yeah, thanks. The comment was directed to Mr. Corbett, because his videos look quite professional.
      But thx for the info.
      Maybe I should write an email.

      • Looks pretty cool, your vid. I’ll have alook at these tools.

    • Questions for Broc West?

      That would be fun and entertaining. A nice spin with a duo doing a Questions for Corbett episode. It would catch viewers off balance with a surprise entree like that.

  22. Can’t get enough johnny YouTube. Corbett is just on the money with that character

  23. – Marketing a target audience –

    At the 57 minute mark, James brings up a PROFOUND aspect when he says: “I understand where a lot of his fan boys are coming from. Why people are excited about him… …tapping into what I think is one of the most fundamental impulses of the human species….”

    We all should take note.
    …with a highlighter.

    • The highlighter is mightier than the sword.

  24. If there was a candidate for the Anti-Christ, Elon Musk would be it. Although, the harm he has done to humanity may be small at present – in comparison to other members of the predator class – there is the potential for him to create hell on earth.

  25. Yes, experiments on those monkeys were dreadful. So were the ones carried out by people wanting to make Deaf people hear late 19th and early 20th century (or thereabouts, anyways- my Deaf history class was in 2001 or 2002, so long ago!). Eventually, they came up with cochlear implants, which do more harm than good to those wearing them… if the Deaf person can hear anything at all with them, since many of those surgeries end up in failures.

  26. Fantastic work James!

    I was not aware of the amount of flip flopping Musk engages in – like a politician he seems to change his approach according to the zeitgeist of the times.

    I also found your introduction to be quite humorous and unique – and indeed I tire of the “smash that like and subscribe button” to appease the algorithmic overlords of YouSuck, ahem, I mean YouTube.

  27. I know I’ve been MIA lately, but this was a great podcast!! Kind of reminded me of the Hopium documentary! The comparison between Musk and Gates, Obama, and Schwab was on point. They’re all the same.

    Good stuff James, keep em coming!

  28. I wonder if Musk is family with sci-fi author Joe Halderman of “The Forever War” …

  29. Hey James did you ever hear about how Musk admitted to playing a part in a Coup d’etat in Bolivia over Lithium?

    “Elon Musk Confesses to Lithium Coup in Bolivia”


    “The CEO of the U.S.-based Telsa car manufacturer has admitted to involvement in what President Morales has referred to as a “Lithium Coup”.

    “We will coup whoever we want! Deal with it.” was Elon Musk’s response to an accusation on twitter that the U.S. government organized a coup against President Evo Morales, so that Musk could obtain Bolivia’s lithium.”

  30. At 80, all I have seen convinces me that there are no saviors. If you crave someone to trust (a natural, genetic desire) then, TRUST YOURSELF, e.g., work hard sa hell to make yourself trustworthy. How? We, unlike all other species, need to use our minds, think. Continually expand your context and your ability to reason.

    • @Voluntaryist

      Could you please elaborate on what you meant when you said:

      “We, unlike all other species, need to use our minds” ?
