    • Who was the homeless dude in the video?

  2. Hi James,
    I love and promote your shows everywhere. The latest video (Ukraine) on Odysee had some problems with the focus of the footage. The video kept going in and out of focus. I am not sure if this is a problem on your side or Odysee.
    All the best for you & your family,
    Robin Hood

  3. I am most pleased to have been able to provide some input to Mr Corbett’s most recent piece.

    Of the many interesting observations and questions he provides in the piece, for me one of the most insightful was his question of “when do you start the clock?”

    For Ukraine one could begin 30 years ago when it became an independent nation. Or one could go further back to 80 odd years ago when it existed as a Soviet Socialist republic as Mr. Putin did in the interminably long speech which prefaced his declaration that he would sign the legislation which formally acknowledged Russia’s recognition of the independence of the breakaway republics. But, why not go back to 170 years ago when the term of “Novorussia” really began as Russia set about creating its land based empire as a counterpoint to UK/France/Spain’s establishment of sea based empires. The key “war” of the time for Russia was the Crimean war which is literally on Ukraine’s doorstep.

    When one hears western media describing the “situation” in the Ukraine they will often start the clock by citing the Russian annexation of Crimea and ignore the coup in Ukraine which had happened just weeks earlier.

    Thus, be aware of “clock starting” as a narrative tactic to reach conclusions which are assisted by the choice of the temporal start of the historical analysis.

    • “Thus, be aware of “clock starting” as a narrative tactic to reach conclusions which are assisted by the choice of the temporal start of the historical analysis.”

      Incredibly well said. This should be the number one rule for “ANY” “HISTORICAL” dialogue. History has been, and apparently will be forever, revised.

      Not verbatim and I forget where I heard it but as close as I can remember.

      You are more powerful than a god if you are able to change history after it has been written.

    • 2-D Chess Dweller,
      Thanks so much for what you do!
      It is people like you who help to shape OUR new narrative.

      We all play a role in shaping OUR new narrative by channeling our own individual, energizing niche.

      • Dear HRS,

        I am humbled by your compliment. I am, like the rest of us, just trying to better understand the world.

        JC has served as my inspiration. He is the reason why my articles are full of sources. Indeed, I recently wrote an Editorial trying to describe my objectives (most recent article). Unsurprisingly, its about increasing the diversity of peoples’ media consumption; to encourage people to listen to wider opinion. To quote Ryan Christian “question everything; come to your own conclusions”. I try to provide some input towards the questioning.

        I was quite shocked on Thursday morning. Prof Paul Robinson, who has been an excellent source of calm thoughtful analysis, chose to shut down his newsletter. I knew something very bad must have happened. I will be publishing more on Ukraine, but am taking a pause while the fog of war clears. I’m going to have to swallow some pride and look inwards to find a moral core to guide me. This is appropriate. My words, though read by few, have consequences and I need to reckon with that.

        Peace be with you.

        • Hi Corbetters,

          I’ve sought and consulted the inner compass which I mentioned above, and have published a short to medium length update on Ukraine. It is designed for those who would like to learn about what is verifiably known of what has occurred, with thought provoking sources. It is decidedly not for those who like war porn.



          • I can see an interest in the article coming from the Corbett community. I am gratified.

            I hope you found the article informative and/or thought provoking.

            Note: Please do NOT comment on the article here. This is NOT the place for that. I just wanted to express my thanks to you.

  4. It seems to me that we are being targeted for war, death, population reduction, murder, war, rape…

    I only see that Russia and US are coordinating this attack to ensure the story is set so everyone looks at ‘the enemy’ instead of realizing this has been planned a LONG time.

    The tactics we perfected around the globe of destroying countries from the inside to prepare them to be overtaken is coming home to roost.

    We have been primed for this, including a completely non-leader who can only mouth what he’s told to say.

    He would say “death to all Americans” if it came up on his teleprompter. And people trained like pavlov’s dog to obey will agree with him.

    Lets’s go brandon.

  5. This is the first time I ever saw your Wikipedia page. The butthurt is real with the fact checkers, eh?

  6. I keep pointing this out James. Do you ever Mention the religious side of all these crimes against humanity. Or what group of people seem to have the largest part of it even though there is few of them.

    > Early life and career
    Pinchuk was born in 1960 in Kyiv to Jewish parents[3][4][5] who moved to the industrial city of Dnipropetrovsk. He graduated from Dnipropetrovsk Metallurgical Institute with a doctorate in industrial engineering in 1987.[6] Three years later, he founded the Interpipe Company on the basis of his patented innovations, which were adopted by leading metallurgical factories in the USSR

      Victoria Nuland was born in 1961 to Sherwin B. Nuland, a surgeon of Ukrainian Jewish origin,[8] and Rhona McKhann.[9] She graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall in 1979.[10] She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brown University in 1983, where she studied Russian literature, political science, and history.[11]


      Blinken was born on April 16, 1962, in Yonkers, New York, to Jewish parents, Judith (Frehm) and Donald M.

      Just search the names and they all have links to ZIONISM. They are the NAZIS some how?

      • I think you misunderstood my question to James. In my opinion it is a religious agenda being fulfilled when these things happen. Not chance or God. It is wicked men controlling others and using religion as the biggest tool to bring about their evil agenda.

        From the book Beware The World to Come
        “Over two thousand years ago the self-styled “Sons of Light” declared war on the seventy nations of the world, whom they call the “Sons of Darkness”. Hundreds of millions of lives have been lost in this conflict. The Sons of Light believe the contest will only be won when they utterly exterminate the Sons of Darkness. It will never be lost as long as one of the Sons of Light remains to carry on the fight. The war is mostly fought through deception. Only the Sons of Light know that they are engaged in this endless battle. The Sons of Darkness see the bodies piling up, but search in vain for their enemy, who is as subtle and sly as a holy serpent. Ultimate victory will mean the conquest of the entire Earth. It is close at hand for the Sons of Light. But the war continues and either side may yet win. If the Sons of Light are discovered, all of humanity will be saved. Within this book the battle plans and beliefs of the Sons of Light are revealed for the first time for all to see. The Sons of Light have tricked the Sons of Darkness into worshiping Satan, whom they believe is an androgyne composed of the demons Lilith and Samael. The gods of the Sons of Light are also androgynous. Their names are Ein Sof, Shekinah and Yahweh. The Sons of Light are planning to create a Utopia when all is won and all is lost. In it, every human being will be a perfect hermaphrodite with two faces. They will also be immortal and have no need to endure the pain of the cycle of birth, life and death, so there will be no more children and no more death. All the silver, gold and treasure will be theirs and technology will provide their robotic slaves. Since the Sons of Light are all righteous, and since the Sons of Darkness will have passed away together with their dark gods, divine light, peace and harmony will rule the Earth for one thousand years after which all will be complete.”

        This plan Christians think they will be the victors. The Jews are winning now. But the Muslims also have a stake in it and they also believe they will win.

        In my opinion no one of them will win. They are all evil.
        Have you considered that to be a Christian you must also be a cannibal and eat and drink the messiah?

        • That’s an interesting perspective Valuedcustomer. I appreciate the insights. I’ll have to pick up that book, I’m a sucker for these meta-narratives. Also the Freemasons refer to themselves as the sons of light.

          I have certainly noticed there is overwhelming Jewish representation in every power structure across the world, in every country, every corporation, every special interest group and intelligencia. Their mark on world history, war, and finance is massively downplayed and met with extreme amounts of cognitive dissonance. Especially considering their miniscule population juxtoposed to the world population. Any intellectually honest individual has to at least take pause.

          At the very least the Eucharist is a notable mock cannibal ritual, a rehashing of the old Dionysian or Bacchic rites. The parallels are pretty much point for point.

          It took me a while to come to grips with this but Western Civilization is a massive death cult. The West is in reference to the Sun’s setting position, or the dying Sun/Son. Where nearly all Western religions venerate the deific figure of the dying solar savior. The Western modality of consciousness has an oppressive fixation on death that informs every aspect of existence. It is from this modality that we see the creation of the deathform technology of the Corporation or the Corpse Oration, the talking dead construct. The corporation has subsumed or zombified every aspect of human living. From birth every Western being born into the medical industrial complex has their soul given over to their death deity in the form of a sole imprint from their foot to a registry they are given a birth certification number traded on stock exchanges as pedigreed chattel. A Corporation or strawman is effectively created in the likeness and information of the living being so the individual can be enslaved to the death based system of commerce. All commerce is war and all war is commerce.

          There is just so much more to talk about this subject but as long as humanity operates in modality consciousness we are in grave danger. Corporations have nearly taken over or zombified the entire planet in fiction and death. Hence the obsession with transhumanism or robotic golems. Alteration of the human genome.

  7. I’m impressed Mr. Corbett. Kudos for tackling this sensitive issue in an even-handed manner.

  8. Yes, thanks James for at least the most recent historical summery of Ukraine, (which seems to be the only one of importance presently). I may also add that it make’s a great interim Fright Night OP as we are being weened off of the last one.

  9. This article has some insights…

    Wednesday Feb 23rd – OilPrice.com
    By Irina Slav, a long-time energy journalist who lives in Bulgaria.
    The Uncomfortable Truth About Sanctioning Russia
    ~~~ Russia’s decision to recognize the independence of two cities in Ukraine and send troops over the border has triggered a slew of sanctions from the West.
    ~~~ These sanctions include the suspension of the certification of Nord Stream 2 and the freezing of assets associated with some banks and wealthy individuals.
    ~~~ The reason this first round of sanctions is relatively light is two-fold, the West wants to maintain some leverage over Russia and has very limited options.

    This week, Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Sholz ordered the suspension of the certification process for Nord Stream 2, the Russian gas pipeline that would’ve significantly boosted the supply of Russian gas to Germany.

    The move came in response to Russia’s decision to recognize the two breakaway Ukrainian regions of Luhansk and Donetsk as independent republics and following the decision to send Russian troops there, which the Kremlin claimed was for peacekeeping purposes.

    All EU governments, the UK, and the United States denounced the move and threatened sanctions. The UK and the U.S. later declared some, but, oddly enough, none of the sanctions targeted Russia’s massive energy industry.

    The UK, in its sanction drive, froze the assets of five Russian banks and three Russian individuals. The UK parliament also said it would target with sanctions the Russian MPs who voted in favor of the recognition of Luhansk and Donetsk and said it would ban British companies from doing business in the two regions. The EU targeted politicians with punitive action.

    U.S. sanctions, as announced by President Joe Biden, include putting two big Russian banks and what he termed Russian elites and their families on the U.S. Specially Designated Nationals List, which effectively cuts off access of these individuals to the U.S. financial system.

    The other target was Russian sovereign debt. As Biden told reporters on Tuesday, the sanctions against Moscow basically prevent it from borrowing abroad—a move that sent shock waves across the debt trading industry…

    But why did nobody sanction Russian oil or gas or metals? First, there are a lot of big, important Western companies working in Russian oil and gas and metals. Second, Russia is a major global commodity supplier and sanctions would disrupt an already shaken global economy….

      Oil Buyers Struggle To Finance Russian Crude Following Ukraine Invasion

      Three buyers of Russian crude oil have been unable to open letters of credit from Western banks to cover their purchases, four Reuters trading sources said on Thursday following the Russian attack on Ukraine.

      Banks are understandably hesitant to extend credit for purchases of Russian crude, given the current situation between Russia, Ukraine, and the West.

      A letter of credit is a letter issued by banks that guarantees a buyer’s payment to a seller will be received on time and for the correct amount. However, banks may find such a definitive guarantee hard to stand by after Russia arrived in Ukraine cities by land and sea early on Thursday morning in what Russian President Vladimir Putin referred to as a “special military operation.”…

      …So who is trying to purchase Russian crude oil? Buyers of Russian oil include Big Oil companies such as BP, Chevron, Exxon, Shell, and TotalEnergies, to name just a few. Trading houses, including Trafigura and Vitol, also purchase Russian crude oil….

    • Hi HRS,

      Two financial analysts I enjoy are Michael Hudson and Richard Wolff. Hudson publishes at Unz Review now and then. Wolff has his own show. In a recent interview with Chris Hedges on his RT show “On Contact” Wolff describes the problem in which the USA’s economy finds itself. They are up to their eyeballs in debt and have been printing money like its gone out of style. Due to that printing and the supply chain disruptions caused by CoVID/GreatReset inflation is rising rapidly in the USA. The standard financial solution for that is to raise interest rates, but if they do, they can’t pay the debt. So, they’re sorta screwed. As China rises the dominant of the USD in the SDR currency basket will be adjusted and we’re already seeing international trade in USD declining. This will make further money printing put even further pressure on inflations.

      I am not a financial analyst, so dont take my word for any other this. But, I found it thought provoking.

      • The debt can not be payed either way. All of the “money” created ex nihilo is created with debt attached. They need to print (actually, just add some bits on servers, not actual printing involved) more just to cover the interest rate.

  10. Well well, after the whole “Corbett report is not on facebook” fiasco now a shadow of doubt is cast over comrade Corbett’s life work due to his livid pro Russian stance and dangerous ties to Putin-ish related sources of disinformation.

    • I’m pretty sure I spotted a comment by Thomas about this Russia thing not long after it first appeared. I had some hot steam coming out my ears as I read it.
      I restrained myself from replying (which most folks would find abnormal for HRS with his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and diarrhea mouth.)
      The comment was on an off-the-radar Thread.
      I let it be.
      I didn’t want to draw attention to the comment and I figured the guy really was not a strong follower of Corbett’s works because Thomas was so blatantly off-base with the accusation.
      Plus, I had irons in the fire at the time.
      But I did like his idea about Corbett speaking to this Russia-Ukraine scenario.

      • Oh, this thing is going to be making the rounds for a while, my good man. Plenty of opportunity to talk about ins and outs.

        Jimmy Dore did a few decent segments on Ukraine recently. He put together a nice tapestry of information.

    • Did you even watch the podcast?

      • Comrade RobinHood,
        mkey is joking. 😉

        Sometimes it can be hard to catch the joke with the typewritten word.

        • Thanks for explaining. I don’t come here often.

          • RobinHood77,
            I really understand.
            With a name like RobinHood, I recognize you and have seen some of your previous posts. Thanks for being here on the comment boards.

      • I guess the point I’m making is that the amount of absurdity in the media space is making people missread satire and even parody.

        Obvious should be obvious, but in these insane times nothing should be taken for granted.

        • You must be one of those Rascist, Misogynistic, Canadian Truckers touring Europe.

          • Don’t forget, I’m also an experienced wife beating child hater. And I have MAGA written on my shorts, both sides.

  11. The lies are pretty gross…from the propaganda, “narrative selling” rag Yahoo News…

    Russia may be primed to hack America’s infrastructure

    As Russian troops attack Ukraine, experts are warning that Vladimir Putin could also seize the opportunity to deploy Russia’s trove of cyberweapons to hack America’s infrastructure.

    Russia is no stranger to launching cyberattacks against the U.S. or using third-party hackers to hit American interests. U.S. officials have previously accused Russia of infiltrating everything from American power plants to the Department of Defense…

    …Putin could retaliate by launching powerful cyberattacks against the U.S. Such an attack could cut power to cities, shutter banks, and stop the flow of fuel, crippling whole swaths of the country.

    “I’m quite nervous about what is going to happen,”
    former-Ambassador to the U.N. Social and Economic Council Sarah Mendelson told Yahoo Finance.
    “I have said to people we should expect something, and we should not panic if we have a cyberattack,”
    added Mendelson, who serves as the head of Carnegie Mellon’s Heinz College in Washington, D.C…

    …Russia has previously demonstrated its capability to wage cyberwar in the U.S. as well, whether through malware or disinformation campaigns during the lead-up to the 2016 and 2020 elections, and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
    And with the U.S. and its allies gearing up to hit Russia with harsh new sanctions, the U.S Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency is warning Putin will ratchet up its disinformation campaigns…

    …“There have been some infrastructure-based attacks where [Russia has] been caught breaking into dams and power plants and things like that in the U.S.,” explained NYU Tandon School of Engineering professor Justin Cappos. “It’s possible that they’re in substantial parts of U.S. infrastructure, and are sort of dormant and have capabilities that they haven’t gone and exercised.”
    Russia has been launching cyberattacks against U.S. infrastructure, including power plants, for years, probing security systems to find weaknesses. In 2020, a Russian-backed group launched an attack on internet network infrastructure company SolarWinds (SWI), giving hackers access to government organizations including the Department of Defense…

    …The U.S. has responded in kind, implanting malware into Russia’s own systems in a move reminiscent of the Cold War…

    …According to Mendelson, if Russia launches a cyberattack against one of America’s NATO allies, the treaty’s mutual defense guarantee may force America to retaliate….

      • Psaki Denies Report That Biden Was Presented with Options for Cyberattacks against Russia

        White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday denied recent reporting that President Biden had been presented with options to disrupt Russia’s Ukraine invasion with massive cyberattacks.

        “This report on cyber options being presented to @POTUS is off base and does not reflect what is actually being discussed in any shape or form,” Psaki wrote in a tweet.

        The comment came after NBC News reported earlier on Thursday that Biden had been “presented with a menu of options for the U.S. to carry out massive cyberattacks designed to disrupt Russia’s ability to sustain its military operations in Ukraine.”…

  12. The anti-Russian propaganda has been for years so reductive it’s actually comical… Then, Putin’s politically incorrect sense of humor is quite refreshing.
    But it is indeed surprising to see how so many in the “alternative community” worship him. I had a friend who believed Putin understood the evil forces he was fighting against and took a virtuous stance for the future of Humanity.
    People, whichever side they may belong to, have a deep need for a hero figure.

    • It’s a common human failing, to view “the enemy of my enemy as my friend”

      I was swindled by this same thing with Trump, mistakenly thinking because the MSM appeared to hate him, there must be some good there. And perhaps there was less turd in that selection (Trump), it’s still a turd nonetheless. But what precise operation and strategy can we take to get rid of these shit heads (the Biden, Putin, Merkel, other tyrants)?

      Any government who supported the lockdowns and Covid scam, implicitly or overtly is an enemy of the people, period.

      • If you need to see where Trumps loyalties lie, look no further than when he allowed the CIA to block the release of the JFK assasination documents. That was his moment to really drain the swamp but he went the politically expedient route

  13. James;

    Thank you for the context missing in MSM. Lately, I am bombarded daily on every TV channel with propaganda. I boycott MSM, except for certain Fox programs e.g., “The Five”, “Gutfield”, “Tucker” for entertainment. But, as my regular shows, e.g., “Jeopardy”, are being preempted I have left in on sometimes, and got hooked for hours. I see the same phrases, storyline, being promoted, over & over by different “reporters”, without any background, just stereotypes. Even “on location” I find zero original, personalized reporting. I kept getting the feeling there was nothing of substance, just filler.
    Then, I remembered “The Corbett Report” and went to find out what was happening, e.g., the whole story. Now I know. I feel better.

  14. Ukraine is Europe’s breadbasket. It’s also one of the most corrupt countries in the world. Just ask any Ukrainian cab driver in New York City. The geographical area has an interesting history. Chernobyl is there for one thing. Kiev was the original capital of the Rus, but the Mongols destroyed it. Lots of WWII battles in Ukraine. Lots of Ukrainians served as guards in the Nazi concentration camps. Some Ukrainians joined the German Army for various reasons. It’s a tough choice; National Socialism or Soviet Communism. As Corbett says, two halves of a feces sandwich. The same situation affected patriots in the Baltic States in WWII. Emigration was the only way out.

  15. Hi James

    I would like to react on Tomas from Poland. I’m Slovakian and I was also born in occupied country as was Tomas. I also believed for over two decades that we were invaded by ‘bad’ Russians, as we learned from sources like Radio Free Europe and Voice of America radio. Only later in my life I learn the full story, but only after I investigated myself, and it wasn’t quite as those US government founded radio stations made us believe. In short: then Czechoslovakia was invaded in August of 1968 by armies of Soviet union (not Russian as most people believe) and armies of Warsaw Pact. Invading army of Soviet Union was made mostly of Ukrainian soldiers, and Warsaw Pact armies were armies of Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and East Germany although East Germany army wasn’t later permitted to cross the border, as it would look bad after been defeated in WW2. Interesting fact is that there were also countries of Warsaw Pact that refused and didn’t participate in invasion, and those were Romania and Albania.
    So my question is – who actually invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968, and what would happen if more countries would refuse?

    And at the end I have to mention that one of the invading occupants was also member of Soviet Communist Party and KGB Wladimir Rodionovich Klitschko, father of current mayor of Kyiv Vitali Klitschko, but that’s different story…


  16. JAMES,


    • What’s Putin’s policy on Covid? Do Russians have vaccine passports, lockdowns and mandatory vaccines to work? If they do, then Putin is no hero.

      • sorry, i dont know how to link to google images (I’m pre-digital generation), but chuck-in “putin WEF trudeau”, click on “images”, and 1000’s of words will jump from the screen to your face.

        “its a big club,and you and I aint in it” GC

      • ^^ I have no idea why people don’t see this. It just boggles my mind. First we have the division of “vax” vs no-“vax”. And now putin good vs putin bad. It is so obvious to me they are all on the same side and we are being played. Covid is already so 80’s. Onto the next division. Just amazing and disturbing to watch in real-time.

        (I would like to shout out to JC thanking him for how & why big oil that really connected all the dots for me).

    • BUMP

      My blood is boiling!

    • I reckon carry a mirror (plastic not glass,,), and see if the goons will look into it, they’d scare the shit out of themselves.

      insta self awareness.

      Those gunslingers were functioning at the maturity level of “the terrible twos” when children begin to wield the first word they’ve heard the most: “NO”.

      so weve got 2 yr olds, in adult bodies, armed, making life hard or worse.

      sing fat lady, sing

  17. https://mises.org/wire/russian-weakness-and-russian-threat-west The link to the left at the Mises Institute shows the strengths and weaknesses of Russia. It’s a good article. The article shows that Russia can only project power near its borders. Russia’s population is declining. It has a weak GDP and per capita income. Sure it has nuclear weapons, but those are defensive only. My fear is that someone makes a mistake and the nukes fly.

  18. I think we need to examine why the the human species Loves War so much . After all , we keep repeating the Behavior , regardless of how many people we kill , maim and incinerate- including our selves and our loved ones,!!!!
    Number one- men and women both showing off to get the best mate by being a “ hero”” – this works for the young virile studmuffins.
    Number two : old not virile geezers wanting to kill off the young virile studs so the wombs will take them by default.
    The Male wants more dough so he can impress the Female and spread his seed in the best pasture .
    This is basic shit folks.

    Make love not war!


    • Donna, I think that what you are after is already known. People’s minds have been poisoned by the idea of self worth. It has been many generations now parroting the same ridiculous claims over and over again, it’s been so long that most don’t even know anything else.

      They believe it and most will be taking their brlief to the grave. They will go to their grave early to defend it. This deep rooted hatred for our own kind is making the propaganda so efficient.

      War is showing the true human nature: being a programmable being that can even take shape of, what most would consider, inhuman form and abide by inhuman practices.

    • “You lust and do not have, so you commit murder. And you are envious and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel.”

      — St. Paul, at 1 Timothy 6:10a

  19. Ok, so, Side Show!! Only $1.00 to get a ticket!! Get your Ukraine massacre tickets here!!

    My thoughts are this, It’s scripted.

    Covid government policies created issues that need to be dealt with;

    Supply chain issues, need excuses to make the public think it wasn’t the fault of government policy.

    Economic designed implosion. Something needs to be a trigger, no? Leads to CBDC.

    Sanctions on banks? really!! See supply chain issues above.

    And, the talk of “international law” , just a joke to those who play the cards.

    I think we are watching political theater on the world stage, with the cast being decided by the WEF.

    And as for the question, does Russia want to know what the West does next?? No you buffoon, they Know!! They are reading the WEF playbook.

    Nordstream 2, sure, whatever. Economic fuel crises in EU. Again, playbook. Once more please see fuel crises, inflation…yada, yada..

    In my opinion, this is scripted World Order excesses for over reach.

    Don’t look at the shiny thing in the corner, look at your own life, well being and the love you have for your family. Live well, be free.

    Break free and live free, your human right is your freedom. Everything else is a sideshow.

      “political theater on the world stage, with the cast being decided by the WEF”

      thanks for putting that in here; just what I was thinking as the too many narratives to keep track of wizzed bye.

    • ^^ spot on howler monkey. Don’t forget also a cover for all those dropping from the poison shot!

  20. — Neo NAZIS in the News and on Facebook —

    Praise Of Ukrainian Neo-Nazi Battalion Given Green Light By Facebook: Intercept

    Though it has in recent years downplayed its neo-Nazi sympathies, the group’s affinities are not subtle:
    Azov soldiers march and train wearing uniforms bearing icons of the Third Reich;
    its leadership has reportedly courted American alt-right and neo-Nazi elements;
    and in 2010, the battalion’s first commander and a former Ukrainian parliamentarian, Andriy Biletsky, stated that Ukraine’s national purpose was to “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade … against Semite-led Untermenschen [subhumans].”
    With Russian forces reportedly moving rapidly against targets throughout Ukraine, Facebook’s blunt, list-based approach to moderation puts the company in a bind: What happens when a group you’ve deemed too dangerous to freely discuss is defending its country against a full-scale assault?
    –The Intercept

    According to Facebook’s new internal policy reviewed by The Intercept, the company will “allow praise of the Azov Battalion when explicitly and exclusively praising their role in defending Ukraine OR their role as part of the Ukraine’s National Guard.”

    Examples of allowed speech include: “Azov movement volunteers are real heroes, they are a much needed support to our national guard,” and “We are under attack. Azov has been courageously defending our town for the last 6 hours,” and “I think Azov is playing a patriotic role during this crisis.”

    That said, the group still can’t use Facebook for recruiting purposes or publishing its own statements. The regiment’s uniforms and banners will continue to be banned as hate symbol imagery.

    Examples of speech regarding the group that’s not allowed, includes things like: “Goebbels, the Fuhrer and Azov, all are great models for national sacrifices and heroism,” and “Well done Azov for protecting Ukraine and it’s white nationalist heritage.”

    Facebook confirmed the decision, but refused to elaborate….

  21. Yes they all are bankster globalist puppets. Putin just did the federal reserve a favor by going into Ukraine. Now they can keep printing cash & use war as an excuse now that covaids is failing.

  22. Wow! what a brilliant analysis. Hat’s off to you James.

  23. A timely observation there, as Mars quickly approaches Capricorn, where it’s ruling planet Saturn sits for two years. Mars’ greatest enmity is toward Saturn, the malefic restricter and delayer and obstructer, lord of loss and grief, force of military and institution, the patriarchal force, the father who rules harshly.

    Good luck to Mars in the two months to come. It’s a very complex time, as all the planets sit in Saturn’s two signs/rashis, save the wandering Moon for half the month. And at that time, all are held within the nodes, a very challenging situation all around.

  24. Uncle Klaus is on video talking about Putin being a WEF man.

    The de facto world government has it all planned out for us. “Both” sides are on the SAME side: against humanity.

  25. Poles and Russians have a many centuries-long “relationship,” almost never respectful.

  26. Pretty sure that you cant grow enough food for the current population with just organic fertilizer. They used to ship Bat poop all over the world and gather bison bones them before we came up with chemical fertilizer so I doubt we could produce the quantities of food we do now without them.

    That said, I agree are big issue with how we farm right now, but you cant extract as much from the soil as we do now without artificial junk


  27. I read Putin’s speech this morning upon waking.

    When I’d finished, tears in my eyes, I thought about April 10th, 2010. Nobody denounced. Nobody ‘fessed up. Evidently a collaborative effort of silence.

    And I thought about Russia’s participation in the Covid Tragi-Comedy.

    It would seem pretty clear, as brilliantly contextualized, analyzed and explained by Mr. Corbett in the video above

    that this event is ideal for accomplishing a number of Globalist goals on economic, cyber, technocratic, bio-tyranny and psychological levels.

    So, though Putin’s speech is stirring and eloquently lays out compelling historical context and a number of uncomfortable truths about inscrupulous Western imperialism (a clumsy pleonasm)

    I believe it is once again, as always, the truth being wielded in the service of illusion and lies and the mostly collaborative quest for total technocratic power over Humanity.

    After the “Global Pandemic” where every state across the planet played their part, willingly or unwillingly, in the Pandemic Parody and its key Deus Ex Machina climax known as the Onslaught of the Super Shot, this “Nationalistic” event helps to reinject for a little longer, the waning illusion of nations and nationalist interests while insidiously advancing Globalist objectives.

    At least that’s my imperfect view from the hamsterwheel.

    • “…the truth being wielded in the service of illusion and lies
      and the mostly collaborative quest for total technocratic power over Humanity.”

      “truth being wielded in the service of illusion and lies”
      “truth being wielded in the service of illusion and lies”
      “truth being wielded in the service of illusion and lies”

  28. Excellent, even the BBC are listening to your podcasts !

    I suspect Putin has been ordered (by the WEF) to attack Ukraine and give up Nordstream 2. This means a huge rise in gas costs in Europe as we switch to American (liquid) fracked gas.


    “Nord Stream 2: How does the pipeline fit into the Ukraine-Russia crisis?

    Final approval of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has been put on hold because of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, Germany has said.

    The pipeline between Russia and Germany was completed last September but is not yet operating.

    • yes, all part of the controlled demolition of you and me.

    “shwabbo minyons seem to be pushing for the end of nation states.”

    I agree and it seems to me that the ‘Stans’ will be re-absorbed but not the big ones like Poland.
    Published today by Professor Sergey Karaganov, honorary chairman of Russia’s Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, and academic supervisor at the School of International Economics and Foreign Affairs Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Moscow; this reads to me as a position paper. It lays out where they have been and why they have changed course.

  30. https://www.rt.com/russia/550271-putin-doctrine-foreign-policy/

    “…While attempting to heal our relations with the West (even if that requires some bitter medicine),…The real prospects and challenges of our present and future lie with the East and the South. Taking a harder line with Western nations must not distract Russia from maintaining its pivot to the East.”

    [While} we must not allow Ukraine to become a security threat to Russia. That said, it would be counterproductive to spend too many administrative and political (not to mention economic) resources on it.”

    “It would be much more effective to invest in the East, in the development of Siberia.”

    “The most promising path for Russia lies with the development and strengthening of ties with China. A partnership with Beijing would multiply the potential of both countries many times over. If the West carries on with its bitterly hostile policies, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to consider a temporary five-year defense alliance with China.”

    “…What should we do then with hundreds of millions of Pakistanis, Indians, Arabs, and others whose lands might soon be uninhabitable? Should we invite them now as the US and Europe began to do in the 1960s, drawing migrants to bring down the cost of local labor and undermine the trade unions? Or should we prepare to defend our territories from the outsiders?”

    “The Bolsheviks tried to dump the social ideas of tsarist Russia – everybody knows how this played out. We rejected Marxism and were happy about it. Now, fed up with other tenets, we realize we were too impatient with it. Marx, Engels, and Lenin had sound ideas in their theory of imperialism we could use.”

    “We can find a slogan for the new Russian policy toward the West in a verse from Alexander Blok’s ‘The Scythians’, a brilliant poem that seems especially relevant today: “Come join us, then! Leave war and war’s alarms, / And grasp the hand of peace and amity. / While still there’s time, Comrades, lay down your arms! / Let us unite in true fraternity!”

  31. Hi James !

    I have been a reader of your website, and a listener of your podcast’s for a lot of years, and I am a subscriber.

    I am going to continue for a long time in the fututure it seems like too.
    All you bring to the table is relevant.
    If some of your readers, don’t get it, well maybe it is time for them, to do som deeper look into your work.

    Keep on trucking – James !

    Love from Norway.


    NB ! Solutions : https://puri.sm/products/librem-5/pureos-mobile/

  32. I am so glad to have a better understanding of the history involved. Thank you, James, as always.

    I do see many times over on the web and even momentarily in Twitter (the original tweeter was cancelled) a strange discussion about this “aggression” is based on the US Biolabs in the Ukraine. The tweet with various documents, graphs, and maps had been screenshot by many others, providing location of biolabs and suggestion that these places were being targeted by Russia. Who knows if any of this is true, but it would be interesting – considering the biolabs in China funded by western bodies that brought us COVID.

    I was wondering if you heard about this?

    Here are SOME of many sources I found:






  33. Thomas:” …your comments on V.Putin ans Russia have always been positive”

    Actualy, James said who Putin is, Kissinger’s friend
    (starting at 6:40)

    Try as a search phrase on duckduckgo: putin kissinger photo

    Browse through photos and you can see a history of the relationship.

    Following picture is from beginnings, might be around Chechen wars.
    Look at Putin’s facial expression.


    Unusual, joyfully smiling Putin

    They are buddies, Putin and Kissinger

    • Kissinger was on Putin’s dacha(you can find source), that means something…not many go to dacha.

      Then, I can imagine Kissinger able to say: “Vladimir would you be ok with a crisis in Ukrain, kind of major one?
      Putin: “We are talking…………Henry, you know we will find an agreement…but…can I pure some vodka for you, not much just to wet your whistle, I mean, it’s after all a special occasion…since we have time, lets do it easy. We haven’t finished mans talk last time, remember….cool….vodka?

    • Regarding the first picture…
      Would it be an outstretch to say, aura of the picture is about a guy who just realized there is another dimension to the world and a guy who just got a companion for his grand chess game.

  34. Thank you James, this was excellent! You filled in lots of blank spots for me and gave me places to look further.

  35. In the NWNW analysis that “it’s not Ukraine, it’s Germany because Nord Stream 2 economic cooperation will bring alliance to old rivals Germany & Russia, & the US can’t abide that;” if you substitute “Russia + Germany + China + EU” for “Germany” and “the belt & road project” for “Nord Stream 2” then you have the basics of the analysis Michael Hudson does here:


    You might not like where MH intends to land politically, but he’s got a wide-angle view here. It’s focused on a critique of US rhetoric, but it tells a bigger story.

    Basically, it’s that the US is stuck in a 20th c. idea of hegemony based on economic coercion (development funding using taxpayer dollars + American engineering to bring industrialization of infrastructure on the back of debt to the US central banking to open nations to US markets & use of cheap labor) backed by a robust military adventurism (add some black market drug running & everyone except the working people majority wins).

    The US offshores its labor post WWII to disadvantage the working class as a policy of class dependence, China obliged its labor, but didn’t let the US enter for dominating it through debt projects. China industrialized the 19th c. way, by bootstrapping its own workers. And with too many young, single males after 30 years of one-child policy, all the resources were there.

    Now the belt & road project assures peace & alliance throughout China, European Russia, the EU, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, the Middle East, Pakistan, Mombasa. At least prospectively.

    It’s not war that is the problem for the US. It’s peace. A peace that cuts out the need for NATO & US protection. Oh yeah, & also its petro-dollars.

    Corbett has covered these before & this might need a different format than NWNW.

    It contextualizes outside the statist box.

  36. Notice in the US press how many stories there are this week on localities dropping their mask mandates?

    It’s a case (in the US) of using a war to end one scamdemic, while also using the same war to enhance the biosecurity state. And possibly birthing a new (or continuing) scamdemic.

    From March 2021.



  37. dearest James ,my alltime hero ! so great to listen to you with your clear and fresh mind !! thank you very much for this and all the other educational articles you do ! , i will try hard to literally force as many people around me to watch this ,including family members and friends etc …it will be definitely hard to tear them away from the daily TV broadcastings they have been consuming for such a long time ,but i hope to persuade at least a few people to watch this ! thank you again a 1000 times ,stay happy +healthy ,all the very best,paulo

  38. With the education which Corbett has given us, the following film correlates well. Some excellent footage.

    Ukraine on Fire: The Real Story
    Full Documentary by Oliver Stone
    (Original English version)
    (93 minutes)

    …The Maidan Massacre in early 2014 triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, spurred Crimeans to secede and join Russia, and sparked a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.

    Russia was portrayed by Western media as the perpetrator, and has been sanctioned and widely condemned as such. But was Russia responsible for what happened?

    Ukraine on Fire provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which led to the 2004 Orange Revolution, the 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically-elected Yanukovych.

    Covered by Western media as a ‘popular revolution’, it was in fact a coup d’état scripted and staged by ultra-nationalist groups and the US State Department.

    Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how US-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 1980s, replacing the CIA in promoting America’s geopolitical agenda abroad.

    Executive producer Oliver Stone gained unprecedented access to the inside story through his on-camera interviews with former President Viktor Yanukovych and Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaliy Zakharchenko, who explain how the US Ambassador and factions in Washington actively plotted for regime change.

    And, in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Stone solicits Putin’s take on the significance of Crimea, NATO and the US’s history of interference in elections and regime change in the region.

    Now, at last, the full exposé is available in the West. Though, of course, everyone is encouraged to purchase a copy to support Stone’s important work.

    [***NOTE: Around Feb 23rd and 24th, 2022 is when we saw Russia enter Ukraine.
    In the film, the dates of Feberuary 23rd and 24th, 2014 come up.

    • HRS, thank you for that doco link!

      Winter on Fire, netflcks, was the most important docs I have seen on how dissent protests on the ground work in real life.

      Friends, If you’ve never done this yourself, then you might want to take a look. Everything is there, not just the politics, but how it works:
      how the protest groups have to voluntarily divide themselves by function, shifts at the front line, who will be support, who has the nerve to draw fire, who does the work of providing food-medicine-keeping spirits up, &c.

      The fog of war is real. And there are always 5th column agitators that complicate what you are seeing & how it’s reported.

      Since it’s rare to see accounts on film, it’s important to get a look at how it really works. You know, just in case you need to know that.

  39. On 12. and 15.2. I wrote two comments.



    The following is me with game analyst cap, damn, ethically repugnant activity.

    James nailed down the genesis of Ukraine crisis.
    Russia’s moves since last summer are brilliant. First they started huge military manoeuvrers all around Ukraine. Analysts said they showed Russia military capability to assemble 150k or something force in a week or something. Nato is supposedly capable to bring half of Russia’s force and they would need more time.
    After that Russia came with legitimate security demands.
    Ukraine start amassing army and start receiving arms.
    Anglo-American establishment was disinterested for serious talks.
    I expected Ukrainian attack on Donbas and Russia entering the war and push towards administrative borders of Donbas. Instead, Russia decided for total attack with the aim of disbanding Ukrainian army. After an attempt for security demands failed they had to show they mean it seriously.
    In a game initiative is of utmost importance. Recently I won a chess game while being two bishops short at the beginning of last third of the game. But I had initiative all the game and hence position. Since for Russia war was acceptable option, the best move is to strike first and exactly how they did. The move that might be the least bloody, while it is also highly likely to achieve putting back on track a deranged country.

    I hope Zelensky’s offer for peace talks is serious.

    • Damn, Ukraine rejects negotiations with preconditions.

      What a stupid thing to say, after years of sabotaging agreements and Russian army on the move.

  40. Woke up to this edifying news:

    Ukraine-Russia War News Live Updates

    Gas pipeline blown up in Ukraine’s second-largest city
    Ukraine’s second-largest city, Kharkiv, is reeling after a natural gas pipeline was blown up early Sunday morning. The government has warned that smoke from the explosion could cause an “environmental catastrophe” and advised people to cover their windows with damp cloth or gauze.

    Good morning Germany…

  41. The Real ReasonAll Eyes Are on Ukraine by Helen of Destroy
    “…While everyone is on the edge of their seat over the events unfolding in and around Kiev (will Zelensky take the US’ offer of help or won’t he? Will the US drop him out of a helicopter and say their fingers slipped or won’t they?) the self-identified “adults in the room” will be quietly hammering out a “global pandemic treaty” that has the unusual distinction of being legally binding internationally – that means it supersedes the national laws of any of the 194 WHO member countries that will be expected to sign it….”


    • Yes, I imagine various objectives are being realized via this latest Ukraine spectacle, pulling eyes off of and onto diverse key issues; distracting from the advancement of the Pandemic Treaty (also evoked by Mr Corbett in his latest posting recorded on the 17th of February) and focusing attention on destruction of fuel plants and gas pipelines highlighting the health, economic, energy and environmental catastrophes of this Dumbass conflict, all key to pushing the Great Reset buttons.

      • Yes, and the push for control over crypto. http://feeds.feedburner.com/zerohedge/feed

        ECB’s Lagarde Urges Immediate Crypto Regulation To Stop Putin Evading Sanctions

        “…In response to a question on Russia potentially using crypto to evade some of these measures, the ECB president urged action on an existing proposal for a regulatory framework on digital assets.

        “Whenever there is a ban or prohibition or a mechanism in place to boycott or prohibit, there are, always criminal ways that will try to circumvent the prohibition or the ban” said Lagarde.

        “It’s so critically important that MiCA is pushed through as quickly as possible so we have a regulatory framework within which crypto assets can actually be caught.”

        “… Rogue states like Iran and North Korea have long turned to alternate forms of finance when they are shut off from the global banking system. And diaspora communities have always found a way to support their side in an overseas conflict. Think of the IRA collecting money in Boston taverns, or Sri Lankan Tamils fundraising in Toronto temples.

        What is new and different is how easy it is to fund such activities almost instantly with crypto. The latest example, aside from Ukraine, is the Canadian trucker protests, which were sustained by Bitcoin donations. Many on Crypto Twitter cheered on these activities, but I heard a very different perspective from my family and friends in Canada. Like most of their countrymen, they were exasperated by a radical minority blockading the border, and angry that foreign money was funding much of the chaos.

        The point is that crypto has become instrumental in funding conflict, violent or otherwise…”

  42. Alert: Ukraine chemical time bomb; warning to Putin and the Ukraine military

    Tamara Gurzhiy, “Expired and prohibited pesticides problem in Ukraine,” Independent Agency for Ecological Information, Kharkiv, Ukraine (English translation):

    “Twenty thousand to 25,000 t [tons] of expired or prohibited pesticides are stored on 4,000 Ukrainian depots. This is a serious threat for people and environment. Arsenic compounds are highly toxic for cattle. Death comes within several hours…Majority of pesticide depots were not designed for long-term usage. Chemicals are stolen and illegally sold to people. Depots’ roofs collapsed over the time, pesticides’ wrapping gets [out of] of order, pesticides of different nature may become [a] catalyst of spontaneous chemical reactions with unpredictable results. Spontaneous fire may spread toxins on a wide area. Utilization of expired and prohibited pesticides is Ukrainian national problem.”

    Indeed, there was a fire in 2009.

    Simferopol, October 17 (Interfax-Ukraine): “A storehouse with pesticide in Dzhankoi (Crimea) is on fire…around 200 tonnes of pesticide and magnesium chloride…around 40 tonnes of pesticide was taken from the storehouse…” How extensive were the toxic clouds? Was this the real reason for fake 2009 reports of a million people ill in the Ukraine with Swine Flu?

  43. ***Spend 60 seonds to view the IMAGES side-by-side…

    Saturday Feb 26th – By Sundance
    The First Casualty of War Is the Truth – The Current Western Propaganda for Ukraine Is Epic in Scale

    When we shared yesterday [See LINK of Hillary Clinton] that all interested observers should be very wary of the information from media sources around Ukraine, there was a reason for that. Question everything. Take nothing at face value.

    If you have never experienced the propaganda push surrounding war, the totality of the inbound bullsh*t can be destabilizing, overwhelming and unnerving. It’s one of the reasons why CTH doesn’t share immediate information. Everyone has an agenda.

    Everything we are seeing in U.S. media surrounding U.S. interests in Ukraine is a massive propaganda operation with the headquarters in the U.S. State Department and U.S. intelligence community. The sense of sympathy you are feeling is part of an intentionally manipulative operation from within this DC matrix.

    The images, pictures, videos, speeches, soundbites and the cinematography broadcast by U.S. corporate media are all purposefully intended to create a very specific outlook within the American people toward the issues in Ukraine. The leftist United Nations, and the leftist U.S State Dept, will work together on this just like they have done in the prior examples (Ukraine 1.0, Libya, Egypt, etc.)

    It is very easy to become a victim of psychological warfare intended to manipulate our opinions…

    … In essence, the “strategic power” battle is for your mind…

    …Everything in modern warfare is storytelling.

    Question all of it….

  44. oh boy. one goes not simply to the corbettreport and accuse james of being a putin lover. (boromir meme here)
