Episode 338 – NGOs Are The Deep State’s Trojan Horses

by | May 21, 2018 | Podcasts | 51 comments

The Trojan horse was the earliest recorded military psyop. That psyop continues to be deployed on unsuspecting populations and it is just as useful as ever, but today’s tricksters have donned the mantle of philanthropy, and their Trojan horses are not wooden statues but non-governmental organizations offering “aid” to foreign nations. In today’s edition of The Corbett Report, we’ll learn about how NGOs are the deep state’s Trojan horses.

Troy, 12th century BC.

The Greeks’ decade-long siege of Troy is drawing to a close. The cunning Odysseus has hit upon a plan to subvert the Trojans’ defenses. The Greeks build a giant wooden horse and then pretend to sail away, leaving the horse at the gates of Troy as an apparent offering to the goddess Athena. The Trojans, believing the gift will make their city impregnable, take it within the city gates.

But it is a trick. Odysseus and his men are hidden inside the hollow horse and they emerge during the night to open the gates and let in the Greek army, who have returned to take the city. The Trojans don’t get a chance to learn from their mistake; the Greeks sack the city and massacre its inhabitants.

The Trojan horse was the earliest recorded military psyop. The lesson of the story, recorded in the counsel to “beware of Greeks bearing gifts,” is that we should not let down our defenses when an erstwhile enemy offers us aid. Today, that counsel is as useful as ever, but today’s tricksters have donned the mantle of philanthropy, and their Trojan horses are not wooden statues but non-governmental organizations offering “aid” to foreign nations.

The bitter truth is that in a surprising number of cases, NGOs are the Deep State’s Trojan Horses.

This is The Corbett Report.

In 2015, Kyrgyzstan made what might seem at first glance to be a surprising move: It canceled a cooperation treaty with the US that had been in place since 1993. The treaty granted tax breaks and customs privileges to organizations like the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and gave their workers diplomatic immunity in the country. All of that came to an end after the US granted a human rights award to Azimjon Askarov, an activist swept up and thrown in jail for life for “creating a threat to civil peace and stability in society” after the Uzbek riots in South Kyrgyzstan in 2010.

Reaction from the usual Western outlets was swift and predictable: Kyrgyzstan has lost its mind. Or, to be more precise: It’s all Putin’s fault. Somehow. But don’t worry, the US will continue aiding Kyrgyzstan anyway, whether they like it or not, because that’s just how they roll. Go, Team America!

But Kyrgyzstan is not the only country to crack down on “aid” from foreign NGOs. In the last few years a series of countries, including Russia, China and India, have passed laws placing stricter controls on the operations of these organizations within their borders.

MARGARET HOWELL: Russia is throwing the smackdown on poor little old NGOs, these charitable organizations that were set up. Their reasoning behind them? That they might be trying to take down the Kremlin.

The Kremlin is moving to ban the US-backed MacArthur Foundation, George Soros’ Open Society Institute and ten of their foreign groups, calling them “unwelcome organizations” by law. They’re also mulling over something called a “patriotic stop list.” Anyone caught collaborating with these groups, they’re facing six years in prison.

ANCHOR: China has passed the country’s first law regulating overseas NGOs, or non-governmental organizations.

HAO YUNHONG (VOICEOVER): The Chinese government always welcomes foreign NGOs to come to China to expand cultural and charity activities, and your achievements are highly spoken of by the Chinese authorities. But there are a few illegal exceptions in which NGOs came to China to harm its national security.

ANCHOR: The law covers activities of NGOs founded outside the Chinese mainland. They must register with public security authorities and declare where their funding is coming from.

REPORTER: India has placed Ford Foundation on a watch list and ordered all funds from the US-based nonprofit organization to be routed to recipients only after the Home Ministry’s approval. Citing national security concerns, the Home Ministry has asked the Reserve Bank of India to ensure funds given by Ford Foundation to Indian recipients be brought to its notice and dispersed only after its clearance. The ministry said in its order that it wanted to ensure funds coming from Ford Foundation were utilized for bona fide welfare activities without compromising on concerns of national interest and security.

REPORTER: An Egyptian Court has convicted 43 Egyptian and 16 American NGO workers for working illegally in Egypt while encouraging unrest. The defendants, who were mostly absent from court, were sentenced to up to five years in jail. The verdict calls for the closing of US nonprofit groups such as the International Republican Institute and the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House, which back in 2012 Egypt accused of receiving illegal funding and operating without licenses.

So what on earth is going on? Why are all of these countries kicking out all of these US-based non-governmental and quasi-governmental entities? Why would they be opposed to charity and aid?

The answer is not difficult to understand. These organizations are Trojan horses: designed to appear as gifts, but containing secret trap doors through which hidden forces can enter the country and covertly undermine the governments in question. This explanation only sounds outlandish to those who look no further than the organizations’ names and have no idea of their history of operations.

Take USAID, for example. Created in 1961 by executive order, it’s a US government agency that seeks “to end extreme poverty and to promote resilient, democratic societies while advancing our security and prosperity.” So why did President Morales kick them out of Bolivia in 2013? Because he’s crazy and irrational? Or because USAID ran a program through its remarkably frankly-named Office of Transition Initiatives that provided $10.5 million of funding for “Strengthening Democratic Institutions” throughout the country, including in opposition stronghold areas? Was it paranoia on Morales’ part, or merely the recognition that mealy-mouthed rhetoric about “Strengthening Democratic Institutions” is a thinly veiled euphemism for “overthrowing the government,” exactly as leaked diplomatic documents proved was the case for USAID’s identically named program in Venezuela?

EVA GOLINGER: USAID was originally an agency created to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief to countries in need, and throughout the 1980s and the 1990s and more into the 21st century it’s evolved into a political arm and a funding branch of the US government for what they call “promoting democracy.” And it’s actually now a part of US counterinsurgency campaigns that involve the Pentagon [and] the State Department, in terms of diplomacy and obviously war activities. And USAID is the third agency involved in counterinsurgency, and their goal precisely is to provide what they called aid for promoting democracy or stabilizing or helping a country through some kind of political transition or economic transition.

In the case of Venezuela, Venezuela is a country that is oil wealthy so it’s never qualified for any kind of direct USAID help. Therefore, USAID has never had an office here officially, and they didn’t actually come the country and set up an office until 2002, right before the coup d’etat against President Chavez. And the documents—internal documents obtained under Freedom of Information Act—reveal that the sole intention of setting up the office here in Venezuela was to aid opposition forces to eventually ouster Chavez from power.

Should governments trust USAID after it was revealed that the agency secretly created its own social media network in Cuba for the express purpose of undermining the Castro government? Or when it was revealed that USAID had sent a team of agents to Cuba under the guise of “health and civic programs” to incite rebellion amongst youth, including creating a phony HIV-prevention workshop that the agency itself described as the “perfect excuse” to “identify potential social-change actors?” Or when it was revealed that the agency had attempted (and miserably failed) to infiltrate Cuba’s hip-hop scene “to break the information blockade” and spark a youth movement of “social change” in the country?

ANCHOR: A US agency infiltrated the Cuban hip-hop world in an attempt to launch a youth movement against the government there. The secret operation tried to use Cuban rappers to build a network of young people seeking social change. But the Cuban regime caught on and the operation failed. In the process the US Agency for International Development unintentionally compromised a vibrant music culture that produced hard-hitting grassroots criticism of the country. Several artists that the agency tried to promote ended up leaving Cuba or stopped performing after pressure from the government.

In fact, USAID’s black ops programs for undermining foreign governments go all the way back to the founding of the agency itself. Some of the lowlights include USAID’s “Office of Public Safety” and its part in running a CIA front program for training foreign police in torture and terror tactics in Latin America; co-funding (with the CIA) the opium-smuggling Xieng Khouang Air Transport, a private airline for narcotics trafficker (and CIA point man in Laos) General Vang Pao; and co-funding opposition groups in Ukraine (prior to the 2014 coup) with Glenn Greenwald-backer Pierre Omidyar and, of course, George Soros.

FAREED ZAKARIA: George Soros, pleasure to have you on.

GEORGE SOROS: Same here.

ZAKARIA: First, on Ukraine: One of the things that many people recognize about you was that you—during the revolutions of 1989—funded a lot of dissident activity, civil society groups in Eastern Europe and Poland, the Czech Republic. Are you doing similar things in Ukraine?

SOROS: Well, I set up a foundation in Ukraine before Ukraine became independent of Russia, and the foundation has been functioning ever since and played an important part in events now.

SOURCE: George Soros admits playing an integral part in the Ukraine crisis

But this NGO/Trojan horse problem is by no means confined to USAID and its associated organizations. Take the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) as another example.

The official story is that the NED was created in 1983 by an act of Congress in order to “encourage the establishment and growth of democratic development” in target countries around the world in line with US foreign policy goals.

The actual story is that the NED was created expressly as a front for funding CIA activities inside target countries, a fact that Allen Weinstein, one of the members of the study group that led to NED’s founding, openly bragged about in The Washington Post: “A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA,” he was quoted as saying. Even more blatant is an admission by then-Director of Central Intelligence William Casey, who wrote a memo to the White House advocating for the creation of NED but cautioning that “we here [at the CIA] should not get out front in the development of such an organization, nor do we wish to appear to be a sponsor or advocate.”

The NED’s participation in covert destabilization campaigns rivals that of USAID and, like USAID, involves too many operations to detail them all here. Lowlights include:

RON PAUL: What about Ukraine? I understand there are a few organizations that have been involved through this in Ukraine, trying to disturb that government. Of course, we have visited on this subject quite a bit, but I didn’t realize how much the NED is involved over there.

DANIEL MCADAMS: And this is a big issue, because I think the argument could definitely be made that NATO should have ended after the Cold War, but definitely the National Endowment for Democracy should have been ended after the Cold War. Instead, they say, like with every government program, “No, now’s the time we need more!”

But in Ukraine just this past year…Ah, this is an interesting article written by the president of the National Endowment for Democracy—he’s president for life—Carl Gershman. I know this might shock you, but he’s actually a Trotskyite. He was a founding member of a communist breakaway party, the Trotskyite Social Democrats USA. He wrote an editorial in The Washington Post [in] September of ’13, just before the events happened in Ukraine, and he wrote as the president of the National Endowment for Democracy. He said, “Ukraine is the biggest prize.” And he mentioned that “Ukraine’s choice to join Europe will accelerate the demise of the ideology of Russian imperialism that Putin represents,” and “Putin may find himself on the losing end not just in the near abroad but within Russia itself.” So his real goal is regime change. He spelled it out just before all of these events took place.

SOURCE: National Endowment for Democracy? Hardly!

These types of Trojan horse operations have been used hundreds of times in the past, and there is no sign that the deep state is ready to abandon the trick now. Quite the opposite.

It worked during the “Arab Spring” when even The New York Times blithely admitted that the leaders of the protests had “received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, the National Democratic Institute and Freedom House” and the State Department blithely admitted they had spent $50 million helping activists in the region network, communicate and organize with each other through Trojan horse NGOs like Movements.org.

The deception also worked in Syria, where leaked documents proved the US had been providing millions of dollars of support to opposition groups in the country since 2006 through a variety of Trojan horse NGOs like the Movement for Justice and Development.

And as we saw earlier this year in “The White Helmets Are A Propaganda Construct,” even first responder groups like the “Syria Civil Defense” (founded by an ex-British military intelligence officer) have been used as Trojan horses to spread propaganda and advance the agenda of the US and its allies in their quest to topple President Assad.

Let’s be clear: This is not to say that all NGOs are Trojan horses. It is not the case that every group or program that receives money from USAID or the National Endowment for Democracy or a similar organization is thereby automatically a deep state change agent. That is not how the Trojan horse technique works.

No, what makes these NGOs so effective as disguises for regime change operations is that much of the time, they are doing what they claim to be doing: providing aid, assistance and charity where it is needed. It is for this very reason that the US and its allies can so effectively smear NGO skeptics as crazy.

But consider this: In 1938, the US Congress passed the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). With the notable exception of AIPAC, NGOs, lobby groups and individuals who are representing a foreign agent are required to register under the act and are subjected to greater scrutiny of financial records and other activities. The irony is that FARA is essentially the same type of legislation that has recently been passed in China, but when the Chinese do it, it’s craziness; when the US did it 70 years ago, it was just good common sense. Once again, the hypocrisy is evident for those who wish to see it.

If there is any good to come out of this, it is that the public is increasingly aware of these types of covert activities. Perhaps more to the point, victims of these operations are now more willing to stand up to the US (and suffer its potential diplomatic wrath) by scrutinizing, monitoring, watchlisting, regulating, or even kicking out these agents of chaos.

And now, just like the Trojans thousands of years ago, the world is learning the hard way that sometimes a “gift” is better left unopened.




  1. Great video! It’s increasingly frustrating just how willfully blind Americans are to their very own history. As if this group, this effort, this president is somehow different today, despite all the evidence to the contrary, and all the same results year after year. I guess we are truly ‘doomed to repeat it’ as the saying goes. Thank you for your continually exceptional work James.

    • Corbett recently “plugged” one of your videos (with “Recommended Viewing” on a recent article).
      You do an excellent job of reporting.

    • I have a duel part hypothesis on why the mass of humans keep repeating stupid things throughout history. Human beings are the only species on earth that will do the same thing over and over again hoping for a different result. The key difference between humans and other species in this regard is our imagination. I think the human imagination keeps people invisioning rosey outcomes from events that keep yielding the same results (i.e. voting).

      The second part of my hypothesis comes from an idea that Larken Rose hammers out in his book, The Most Dangerous Superstition. That is, the belief in authority, or the “right to rule”. Most people believe politicians have the right to create laws and issue commands because they believe it is necessary in a civilized society. There are a lot of people who realize that history repeats itself and that political rulers exploit the people time after time, but most can’t envision a world without a ruler that “keeps order” and “prevents chaos”. I think this is a major thing people are scared of. The perpetual conditioning from childhood chains people to the belief that they need authority to live in a civilized way, and that “authorities” have the right to use force in order to achieve it.

      • Just to chime in and add to the confusion, I read a meme this morning (now the world is safe!) and it said something like, we are not afraid of the unknown, but we are afraid of the end of the known. People don’t like change, even though change is neither good or bad and is also the only constant in life. We like our ruts and so do our owners. JimBob who ain’t got no owner, but that might be because no one wants to own him outside of the wild chickens roaming outside.

    • My theory on why people do what they do is based on laziness and unwillingness to change. The theory is so simple I don’t think it needs too much explanation, the good ole’ kiss.

      Socialization works well in tandem with these as the public gets lulled into the “everything is peachy, no problem, no sweat” state of mind, something that, especially with age, becomes harder and harder to break out from. The “prison for your mind” thing.

      Another thing that keeps people down, in this age of information, is bad schooling. I guess it had to be introduced in this past century to curb the flow of free ideas.

  2. This is another example of how excellent is the work of James Corbett. It says clearly and specifically what people think in vague and muddy thoughts. People like me, at least.

  3. Yes another great report James.
    There’s just one thing I don’t get though.

    “Take US Aid for example, created in 1961 by executive order, it’s a U.S. government agency that seeks “to end extreme poverty…” ”

    “Take the N.E.D. as another example. The official story is that the N.E.D. was created in 1983 by an act of Congress in order to encourage the establishment and growth of democratic development…”

    USAid an NGO?
    N.E.D. an NGO?

    How can groups created by the government be non-governmental orgs?
    Aren’t they oxymorons?

    • The government organizations, USAID and NED for example, are used to funnel funds into NGOs and other organizations that then spend the funds towards the objectives of regime change or whatever else. This creates a degree of separation for plausible deniability.

  4. I would be interested if anyonyone had some information on Amnesty International? As I noticed them in the visuals a couple of times.

    I have my suspicions about them but have not found any information that sounds conclusive when presented to the layman.

    I’m also interested in them because it is common for them to be fundraising in malls around where I live.

    That’s a double shame. It’s bad enough when some rich bastard is spending their money to spread propaganda, but when the money comes from the well intentioned who can’t really afford it.

    • I’m also interested in them because it is common for them to be fundraising in malls around where I live.

      That’s a double shame. It’s bad enough when some rich bastard is spending their money to spread propaganda, but when the money comes from the well intentioned who can’t really afford it.

      In a similar vein…
      I contacted The Intercept to ask about their current “fundraising” efforts.

      I found it rather strange that they would be fundraising so soon after receiving $250 million from Omidyar.
      I mean with a staff of about a dozen or so, how much money could they possibly need in one year?
      $2, $3, $4 million?

      What was their answer?
      “It’s for the future, you never know”. Yeah right. B.S.!

    • You know, I’d heard some rumors about them before, but the way it had been presented it seemed like they were infiltrated and not directed. But notice how easily they are uncovered. Their plans all depend upon people not paying attention. Those days are numbered. JimBob who hopes it ain’t too many numbers as he was a history major and not a math major for a pretty good reason.

    • Thanks for that, yes that was the kind of information I was after. Interesting too that many of the sources in the article are the same ones as being attacked by the Unmentionable Woman as well.

    • Thanks to the two links you provided, manbearpig, I explored the new-to-me website WrongKindOfGreen.org and discovered, among other gems, a book titled “Celebrity Humanitarianism: The Ideology of Global Charity,” written by York University professor Ilan Kapoor and published in 2012.

      Last month the website published an excerpt from “Celebrity Humanitarianism,” found here: http://www.wrongkindofgreen.org/category/non-profit-industrial-complex-organizations/organizations/humanitarian-agencies.

      A book review that appears above the excerpt makes the entire non-profit industrial complex (NPIC) sound like one giant Trojan horse: “Ilan Kapoor’s stunning new book exposes the most appealing–and thus most dangerous–sacred cows of contemporary ideology: the humanitarian actor, the billionaire philanthropist, and the NGO. Kapoor shows that it is precisely where we feel most emotionally satisfied that we must be most suspicious.” — Todd McGowan, University of Vermont

  5. VoA,

    I would argue that there is no such thing as “human nature.” First I would ask, can it be defined? There is no clear definition of it because people act in different ways all the time, and there are infinite possibilities of how people can act. There is no way to model it accurately because we are all individuals making free and spontaneous choices.

    I think majority of Corbertt Report members would work for an NGO at $200K a year in a heartbeat. They will know it is shady, but they will join because “they mean well”.

    again.. it is all Human Nature… (were is the in-depth report on human nature when it comes to this)

    It seems that what you are doing here is speculating.

    • So you believe Facebook has modeled this thing called “human nature.” I don’t know what exactly they have modeled, but I would guess that they have modeled certain human behaviors. The problem with your idea is that those behaviors lumped together don’t equal human nature, because who is to say exactly what that term can mean. It is a vague term that can’t describe anything because there is so much variation in human action and interaction. We are not a uniform mass that can be broadly described by the term “human nature.”

    • I like that phrase “see evil” that you use. Funny how people do see evil in anything that’s not the way they’re thinking it oughta be. I can see how it might make sense to take note of different things, but most people prefer fear. And so they remain enslaved. JimBob who often sits outside the cave people’s place while they’re watching the shadows and just ups and starts playing his bagpipes. Badly. As if there is a good way to play them. What were these Scots thinking? Bagpipes, golf, hagus? At least they gave us Scotch. God bless the Scots.

  6. To further expand on a particular use of “Aid” organizations, there is an example in the US covert operation of funding the Contras in Nicaragua to overthrow the Sandinistas. Here are a few notes that I took while reading Gary Webb’s book, Dark Alliance.

    State Department unit called Nicaraguan Humanitarian Assistance Office (NHAO), created in 1985, was used to oversee the delivery of $27 million in “humanitarian” aid Congress agreed to give the Contras. Top aid of Oliver North, Robert Duemling, was assigned to NHAO and used as a liaison to drug dealers that the CIA didn’t want to be seen with.

    Duemling oversaw an NHAO contract with a Costa Rican shrimp company called Frigorificos de Puntarenas. Operating Frigorificos was the idea of a Medellín drug cartel accountant who used it, and many other businesses, to launder millions of dollars in drug money. In 1982, Frigorificos was taken over by a group of Miami-based drug traffickers. Cocaine was packed into containers with vegetables and fruit that was then shipped to the U.S.

    The operation was made possible by a sister company called Ocean Hunter, that brought the caught fish from Frigorificos into Miami. Moises Nuñez, a Cuban Bay of Pigs veteran, suspected drug trafficker, and CIA agent, worked on the Costa Rican side and was a big part of the success of the operation.

    Frigorificos was valuable to the State Department because of its international bank accounts that were used to broker “humanitarian aid” money to the Contras.

    • Yes indeed, James. Good report. I wrote about USAID, Freedom House, NED and others as it pertains to Ecuador but alas, everything has been shoved down the memory hole.

      Ecuador now sees these players once again, since the coup d’etat in 2016.

      They are everywhere influencing media, protests and such.

      I lived in Nicaragua as a journalist all of 1985. We saw them there most certainly.

  7. Human Nature (or behavior). Majority of the times, people prefer to do the wrong thing to save face… completely illogical.

    Hey there, VoA. Hope you are well in your part of the world. As to human behavior, I don’t know if I’ve actually typed my thoughts out here or if they’ve merely been hammering the walls of my mind (because I think about it a lot, particularly as I live and watch my own family), but one thing that has stood out to me more than anything is that fear is the common denominator of human activity. Fear will justify throwing your loved ones under the bus to save face and, obviously, life. And it’s simultaneously painful and fascinating to me that people who live and breathe orthodox christianity are some of the most fearful and quick to trample their own to further their selfish desires, in stark contrast to the very words of the One they claim to hold as their moral compass.

    Another common denominator (math was never my strong suit…can there be more than one denominator?…) is shame. You may recall my mentioning the open source investigation of Dr. Tjeerd Andringa called “Geopolitics and Cognition”. Though lengthy reading, it’s not dull or dry but highly fascinating. Broken into chapters a day, one could finish it in a week or so. To address shame, I include the link on that chapter:


    P.S. Scpat and Gaslight, I include you two as well since you’ve both provided very interesting insight above.

  8. Rats! Just submitted my response to you, VoA, but see that I failed to directly “reply” to you. In case you’re subscribing to direct replies to you alone, I hope you’ll see mine which is, unfortunately, standing alone just below.

  9. The whole idea of a needle in a haystack works best if there is lots of hay. A stack of needles is pointless.

    Truth be told, a stack of needles is very pointy!
    Sorry I couldn’t resist. 🙂

  10. Yes indeed, James. Good report. I wrote about USAID, Freedom House, NED and others as it pertains to Ecuador but alas, everything has been shoved down the memory hole.

    Ecuador now sees these players once again, since the coup d’etat in 2016.

    They are everywhere influencing media, protests and such.

  11. How about this from Jimmy Dore… and his weird experience at the Human Rights Foundation’s ‘Freedom Forum’ in Oslo recently.


    JD asks a polite, sensible question on whether the HRF would discuss US domestic human rights violations… and their masks slip… BIG TIME! (LMAO!)

  12. Hello, we’re from USAID and we’re here to help!

  13. Thanks for keeping us informed of the Greta Thunberg installments, FIW. I read the first three acts today and found them every bit as eye-opening and disturbing as you portray them. Please let us know when Act IV is published.

    The quote by artist Hiroyuki Hamada that *REAL* investigative reporter Cory Morningstar chose to open her series with says it all:

    “What’s infuriating about manipulations by Non Profit Industrial Complex is that they harvest good will of the people, especially young people. They target those who were not given skills and knowledge to truly think for themselves by institutions which are designed to serve the ruling class. Capitalism operates systematically and structurally like a cage to raise domesticated animals. Those organizations and their projects which operate under false slogans of humanity in order to prop up the hierarchy of money and violence are fast becoming some of the most crucial elements of the invisible cage of corporatism, colonialism and militarism.”

    It pains me to admit that I used to write for several mainstream financial publications, including a couple of reputable Wall Street magazines. Little did I know what a credulous, ill-informed, unthinking, impressionable journalist I was. It never occurred to me to question the motives or actions of the corporate executives, investment banking titans, and equity and fixed-income research stars whom I regularly interviewed for feature articles. For 20-plus years I believed every word uttered by these silver-tongued charmers.

    As if that weren’t pathetic enough, for the next 10 years I subscribed, along with my liberal-leaning animal activist friends, to every fearmongering word uttered by Al Gore, by the environmental NGOs, and by the MSM’s servile global-warming hypesters.

    My airy-fairy bubble burst in late 2010, when a new friend mentioned that she was researching the events of 9/11. Thank goodness I was curious enough to ask what she meant. She steered me to AE911Truth’s petition. One of the best decisions I ever made was to follow her to that website and from there down the endless, maze-like rabbit hole that leads — when one avoids the rabbit hole’s highway robbers (false flaggers, infiltrators, psyop agents, limited hangouters, controlled opposition, pseudo environmentalists and the like) — to TRUTH.

    And now I’ve found one of the truthiest sites I could ever hope to encounter, The Corbett Report, where fellow sincere freedom-seekers are thoughtful, experienced, and wise enough to rarely be fooled — and cannot be tricked by Blood & Gore (gotta read Morningstar’s Act III to understand that reference!).

    • FIW et al.,

      Wrong Kind of Green released Greta Thunberg Act IV a few days ago: http://www.wrongkindofgreen.org/2019/02/03/the-manufacturing-of-greta-thunberg-for-consent-the-house-is-on-fire-the-90-trillion-dollar-rescue

      It seems an ACT V (the final one before the curtain closes) has recently been added, though it’s not out yet.

      Author Morningstar’s summation of the Greta Thunberg phenomenon in Act IV hits the proverbial nail squarely on the head. She writes:

      “A climate revolution in name only, this said emergency has nothing to do with the protection of our Earth—or climate—and never will. Rather, it has everything to do with saving, protecting and expanding the capitalist economy—at the expense of our already decimated planet. And nothing more than that. This oncoming new onslaught of environmental devastation and plunder—in the name of climate revolution—will make all of modern man’s historical violence against the nature up to this point seem like childish prattle.

      “Yet none of this should come as a surprise. As the oligarchs financed, shaped and largely managed the climate movement, it’s only natural that they alone benefit from it. The power-elites repackaged our oppression as revolution and sold it back to us. By exploiting the innocent youth, which in turn exploited our emotions and fears as a collective populace, we devoured it. And soon, young Greta and all the youth they have exploited will be thrown under the bus. It’s all par for the course under capitalism.”

      Appropriately, Morningstar’s final paragraph links to a short clip from the Asche experiment on social conformity. And isn’t that what the climate change instigators are counting on? Propaganda experts and fleecing artists that they are, they’re betting that if they use innocent-acting, desperate-sounding, heartstring-tugging children to sound the alarm bells loud enough and long enough, each of us will ultimately capitulate, conform, join the Thunberg parade, and march straight into the arms of our greedy exploiters without ever realizing that they are the enemy, not our friends.

      Morningstar says of the Asche experiment: “During the 1950s Solomon Asch conducted and published a series of experiments that demonstrated the degree to which an individual’s own opinions are influenced by those of a majority group.” [1m:57s]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qA-gbpt7Ts8

      • Hahaha! Not to worry, FIW. I was wondering where you’d gone, so I decided to post it myself, hoping you’d see it. Remember, if you hadn’t been so helpful posting Acts 1 through 3, I never would’ve known to read it and respond to you a week or so ago.

        In fact, the four acts were the perfect ammo for me to pass along to a friend who sent this climate change hoax of an article to me this morning (she pointed out that the story originally ran in The Guardian, which figures!): https://www.motherjones.com/environment/2019/02/when-europeans-colonized-the-americas-they-killed-so-many-that-the-earths-climate-cooled/?utm_source=mj-newsletters&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=econundrums-2019-02-11

        I have both you and manbearpig to thank for steering me to Vanessa Beeley’s take on the gilets jaunes. So, please, you guys, don’t be embarrassed by anything you’ve said or haven’t said, done or haven’t done. We’re all supporting one another as we wade through this lovely mess created by the NWO dictators and their NGO and gendarme puppets.

        I’d like to think that every time we point out a non-fake news report like Beeley’s or a series of essays like Morningstar’s, we’re helping not only one another but also the entire world extract itself from the sinkhole/slime/cesspool (take your pick) that the imaginary “elite” have created and in which they’re only burying themselves with their lies, deceit, and haughty disdain for Life, Truth, and Love.

  14. FIW , et.al. I make an observation here about the dangers of behavioral modifications. The Climate Mobilization and Margaret Salamon, Naomi Klein and the overlapping of crisises . Over whelm and induced fear. These are really greedy evil people. Dane Wiggington comes to mind but I don’t know who funds his NGO 504c. Anyone know? Trying to hold back the tide here. What happened to Jane Goodall? Maybe my perceptions and receptions have finally tuned into the real broadcast.

    • FIW: Danes constant hammering the ” end of the world” fear. Not as convincing as Ted Gundersun ,This may be his over-emotional way to awaken people so traumatized by 50 years of propaganda and programming. The counter-approch available by Tony Heller, Jim Lee and Herndon is milder in scope but they too may be trying to depict a “monster threat” by committee. I know something is very wrong but what is being depicted is in many shades of Grey.
      Jane Goodall seems to be a figment of years of programming by the Fabian’s, Darwinist and Eugenics societies. I feel used as she must feel and just wants to keep a good income stream alive.
      It all seems a dream, manufactured dream , but I can’t clearly or convincingly say what they have to do with what I see every other day in the sky right over my head.
      Controlled opposition, gate-keeping?

      • FIW. They could also be as sincere as they come. Truly believing in their truth and reality created by their truth.
        What do you think those two have to do with “it”?
        Im struggling with Wiggingtons past and the tragectory Geoengineering watch is on. His encounter with G.Edward Griffin was strange to say the least. I care for Jane but not her business.
        What’s the end game about ?

      • FIW, could you please explain what you mean about Gunderson? I thought he was one of the FBI’s good guys who stood up to pedophiles, etc., and was possibly suicided, but it now appears I haven’t read or watched the material that shines the full light of truth on him. Or am I interpreting your remark backwards?

  15. Can anyone please recommend any good ngos or charities to donate to that do indeed help those in need around the world?

    • Saleem,
      Wow! What a great heart you have!

      I wish you luck on your journey to finding the right fit.

      My degree is in the Environmental Sciences, and so I have a strong concern about toxins and health.
      Here are a couple places which I personally like…

      Fluoride Action Network
      FAN (Fluoride Action Network) right now is focused on an EPA lawsuit. It should go to trial around the end of 2019.

      This lawsuit stands out beyond any other lawsuit against the EPA. If successful, it opens the door for other citizen groups to file a lawsuit against the EPA in order to change things for the better. This could be the start of really stopping many pollutants and harmful toxins.

      As we know, the EPA administrators are very corrupt (e.g. Corbett’s work on “Christine Todd Whitman”). There are many highly dangerous toxins which the EPA ignores, because it benefits industrial corporations or the military.

      FAN also has a focus on other harmful chemicals, besides ‘just water fluoridation’. The Teflon like chemicals are in the blood system of most the world’s population now; as is aluminum.
      They are very frugal with any donations which come in. The money is spent cautiously.

      Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (the son of the assassinated Bobby Kennedy, JFK’s brother). Robert is an Environmental Scientist, but also a damn good attorney.
      His heart is in the right place. He has worked tirelessly on many, many different endeavors trying to help people and change things for the better.
      He was a main attorney on the first landmark Monsanto trial. He has long fought big corporations for their bad practices which harm people and the environment.
      He even wrote a book in order to get a wrongly convicted person released. (“Framed: Why Michael Skakel Spent Over a Decade in Prison for a Murder He Didn’t Commit”)

      For years, he has been fighting mercury. For example: The coal industry bears a huge responsibility for much of the mercury found in fish. Mercury has been and is still being used in vaccines. Toxic aluminum also.
      Kennedy is concerned about children, as we all are.
      Children’s Health Defense

      Anyway, these are two NGO’s which I vouch for.
      Corbett has mentioned Robert F. Kennedy before, showing a great clip.
      Corbett also has interviewed FAN’s Dr. Paul Connett and discussed fluoride on a variety of occasions.

      A keynote: Both of these organizations will have far reaching worldwide benefits, because the world tends to follow the U.S. policies.

      • My degree is in the Environmental Sciences, and so I have a strong concern about toxins and health.

        That’s a very weird way of putting it. I’d say it’s the other way around.

        • mkey, I’m laughing. Yea, that is right.

  16. Mid-January 2022 – A Corbett Flashback Revist

    Watching this again, I really appreciate the tremendous imagery in the video.

    I watched this on the altcensored.com YouTube link. It was the first time I watched a full video on that platform. It was nice.
    Corbett showed us how to play his removed YouTube videos on AltCensored by adding the last piece identifier (e.g. -r9UrC2uFfM with this video.)
    How to Find Deleted Videos – Questions For Corbett #081

    A re-run of “NGOs Are The Deep State’s Trojan Horses” is very timely, because Russia and UKRAINE are in the news cycle big-time.
    See Below:

    “As part of its plans, Russia is laying the groundwork to have the option of fabricating a pretext for invasion,”
    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday [Jan 14th, 2022].
    “We have information that indicates Russia has already pre-positioned a group of operatives to conduct a false flag operation in eastern Ukraine.”
    “Without getting into too much detail, we do have information that indicates that Russia is already working actively to create a pretext for a potential invasion, for a move on Ukraine,”
    “In fact, we have information that they’ve pre-positioned a group of operatives, to conduct what we call a false flag operation, an operation designed to look like an attack on them or their people, or Russian speaking people in Ukraine, as an excuse to go in.”

    Above script taken from:
    False Flags Suddenly No Longer A Crazy Conspiracy Theory by Caitlin Johnstone

    [I have to laugh at the “false flag” mention. The saying goes: “It takes one to know one.”]

    • Hey HRS!

      I agree with you that James’ replaying of the NGO video couldn’t be more timely.

      In fact, just before I found it and your comment, I happened to listen to this one-hour conversation between Tom Woods and Scott Horton on US/Russia relations: https://tomwoods.com/ep-2044-important-scott-horton-on-us-russia-dangers

      The only part of their discussion I questioned was when Scott mentioned that the Middle East had gotten back at the US by destroying its towers (or something to that effect). Really, Mr. Horton? Is that how it happened?

      I don’t know much about Scott other than his name and the fact that he’s been covering foreign affairs for many moons. Speaking of moons, he and Tom spoke highly of Moon of Alabama’s coverage of the US meddling in Ukraine and of America’s position vis a vis Russia.

      Yes indeed, HRS: It takes a false flag to know a false flag.

      • CQ !
        It is good to hear your voice!

        Boy!…This Holiday Christmas Season brought us very mild and warm temperatures here in Texas. I’m sure it was warmer by the Gulf than up here. Well, now in January, up here, we are finally getting some temps below freezing…that will help curb the bugs in the summer.
        Hope you had some nice Holidays CQ.

        For non-English speakers…DEFINITION
        “It takes one to know one.”
        A retort used to suggest that the person who has accused someone of being something negative thing is in fact that thing (as if being that thing would help one to identify others of like kind).
        A: “You’re a real jerk!” B: “Yeah, well, it takes one to know one!”
        A: “I don’t want to sit next to her—she’s a nerd!” B: “Takes one to know one!”

        The person who expressed criticism has similar faults to the person being criticized.
        This classic retort to an insult dates from the early 1900s.
        For example, You say she’s a terrible cook? It takes one to know one!

        For a synonym, see “pot calling the kettle black”. A near equivalent is the proverbial “it takes a thief to catch a thief”, meaning “no one is better at finding a wrongdoer than another wrongdoer.”
        First recorded in 1665, it remains current.

  17. Finally succeeded in joining. As an 81 yr old ex-pat I have had the pleasure of befriending NGO operatives. One of their big worries is Grant Money. I also noticed that they often were dedicated to the stated goals. In addition to being Trojan Horses, their behavior often revealed ulterior motives in their personal lives. Cambodia seemed to be a favorite posting for those who loved children, perhaps excessively.

    • mfph,
      Welcome! I’m sure I speak for everyone on these comment boards. Glad you are here.

      Thanks for the NGO anecdote.
      I could see how Cambodia with their current educational format would be attractive by those with ulterior motivations.

  18. Cass Sunstein was loudly laughing about this scuttlebutt the other day.

  19. I was just listening to that yesterday, and tomorrow you make a flashback. Nice!

  20. I may have commented on these NGO’s before but, with the risk of repeating myself…hereby once more:

    First of all, thanks a lot for this flashback James!!

    Nothing has changed since last time I commented (I think, back in 2011)and, these sad NGO’s are still destroying millions of lives all over the world and, I’m not speaking about “only” the Americans. European NGO’s certainly also know how to destroy lives – for money and power…this being private as well as Religious of the kind..

    Just to mention a few of the very worst European NGO’s and not least, George Soro’s presence within at least one of our European courts: the Court of Human Rights. Sadly looks Human Rights are for Soro and friends over here solely ?

    Oxfam who, instead of doing what they claim to do…simply rape – and worse – the victims they claim to help…

    Amnesty International do next to nothing for any victims these days and, already more than 10 years ago, I was told by one of their “leaders” that, Amnesty is “first and foremost business”…

    As I have worked for both Amnesty and Oxfam, I find these crimes committed by their staff, much more than troubling and, will never again set my legs in any of these dad organisations…both head offices in London ?

    When it comes to the Religious NGO’s, both Baptists, Methodists and Lutheran World are similar or much worse than the private organisations mentioned here, with at least 2 of them committing complete horrific child sex trafficking – in the name of “charities”..

    Many others could and should be mentioned here but, the sad fact is, they’ve all reached the point of no return by now….and, a thing like foregiveness is no longer possible…in short, they are all not just beyond foregiveness but, even beyond that…

    I find this more than sad…have worked for Human Rights and peace all my adult life, will keep doing so BUT, never again for any organisation!!

    I have absolutely NO wishes for any of these morons as, if anyone/anything is pure fake, lies and committed crimes against Humanity, these horrible Western NGO’s are. – big time and worst, they all clearly commit their horrific crimes “for the fun of it” ???

  21. Hi James,

    Your search bar on PC is great

    Your search bar on mobile, you have to scroll down.
    Probably why some are confused

  22. All of this doesn’t take into consideration the fact that these NGOs also often leave the population they are helping vulnerable because they became dependent on the resources they gave, ie food, clothes, water, etc. It’s another issue linked to them being more harmful than helpful.

    • Indeed. I watched something called “poverty inc” about that.
