can you spare $1.00 a month to support independent media

Unlike the Guardian we are NOT funded by Bill & Melinda Gates, or any other NGO or government. So a few coins in our jar to help us keep going are always appreciated.

FWIW, I’m truly surprised that this recommendation didn’t provoke responses expressing the fairly popular view in these threads that the US use of nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and for that matter the official claims or narrative promoting the existence of nuclear weapons and arsenals, is still another vast hoax.

Do we really need a course of instruction with a reading list to tell us that the mainstream media is to be avoided at all costs? Some things are prima facie, ipso facto and just plain old common sense self evident.

What is your problem other than just being disgruntled for the sake of it? You’re implying in mizzley kind of way that Corbett doesn’t talk about Hiroshima. But he does, so what are you doing? It’s weird. Some bloke further down said it looks like the trolls are gunning for him. Is that it? Are you trolling? You’re like someone’s making you pay for this course. Bloody daft

Comparing Conspiracy booklists, are we ? Some Conspiracy books worth a read:
The Continuum Concept (In Search of Happiness Lost) – Jean Liedloff;
State of Exception – Giorgio Agamben;
Biology As Ideology (The Doctrine of DNA) – R C Lewontin;
Fear of Life (The Wisdom of Failure) – Alexander Lowen;
Weaponizing Anthropology – David H Price;
The Psychology of Love – Sigmund Freud;
Emotional Armoring – Morton Herskowitz;
Children of the Future – Wilhelm Reich;
Nature and the Crisis of Modernity – Raymond Rogers;
The Age of Myth – Tom Chetwynd…..

The conspiracy that never gets mentioned – given people no option but to read books because There’s Nothing Worth Watching On TV…

Why shouldn’t it though? I think consumers of alt media can get a little entitled and cocky and expect people like Corbett to spend hours of their time producing content for no remuneration.

Are we forgetting these people have to make a living? He has to feed his family and pay bills while making these videos. What on earth is wrong with him charging for his time and trouble?

If he opened a shop would you expect to go in and take his stock without paying him?

Ten general recommendations:

Carroll Quigley – Tragedy and Hope
Antony Sutton – America’s Secret Establishment (followed by the Wall St trilogy)
John Coleman – Conspirators’ Hierarchy
Collins’ brothers – The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship
Webster Tarpley – 9/11 Synthetic Terror
William Ramsey – Prophet of Evil (followed by Children of the Beast)
Daniel Estulin – Tavistock Institute (folowed by Bilderberg)
James Musker – The New World Order and the Beliefs of the Elite
David Rothkopf – Superclass
Eustace Mullins – The Curse of Canaan (followed by Murder by Injection)*

  • I don’t necessarily agree with everything in any of these books – but there are some particularly egregious sections in Mullins.

I’d have added John Hamer’s two Falsification books if he’d footnoted them properly. On culture, add Jay Dyer’s books on Hollywood and Dave McGowan’s and Mark Devlin’s books on Music. These only include books I’ve personally read – other works like Douglas Valentine’s ‘The CIA as organised crime’, Daniel Hopsicker’s ‘Welcome to Terrorland’ and various books by Alfred P. McCoy aren’t included because they remain on my ‘to read’ list (because they seem unobtainable at anything like a reasonable price).

OffG has a choice of publishing anything ‘alternative’ (not wholly in support of the MSM narrative) OR anything not continuing to support untruths, e.g. not articles critical of Covid response that yet accept Covid as true, and not articles critical of Russia/Ukraine that yet accept the conflict as more than staged wrestling.

It seems that OffG has adopted the former policy.

A bit Alex Jonesy.

I guess you also managed to miss the articles about fake binaries and the dangers of taking sides over this “war”.

Sure they haven’t called it out as specifically fake, but who has?

Logical reasoning is not a common skill these days, even in the supposedly more astute readership of the OffG comment section.

Where did I say that OffG didn’t post articles that didn’t accept Covid as true?

So your complaint is we don’t do enough articles that say COVID isn’t real? And for this reason you liken us to a honeypot?

What is the ratio? Have you counted? And what would the optimum non-honeypot ratio be?

Do you post similar opinions on other sites or are we especially favored?

Xavier Delacroix
Xavier Delacroix

The ratio of OffG articles that support untruths vs those that do not is disappointingly high.

Ideally, you wouldn’t publish any articles that supported untruths (or failed to acknowledge ‘elephants in the room’).

I liken you to a honeypot in the sense that initially you publish some non-untruth supporting articles, that are to an extent truth revelatory, and once you have enough bears (truth seeking readers/commenters) attracted to the pot, you steadily reduce such articles, thus retaining the insufficiently intrepid bears. Reputation as a good source of honey continues even so.

You tell me what those ‘other sites’ are, and I’ll let you know.

And ‘untruth’ is, of course, anything YOU choose not to believe?

We certainly do publish a spectrum of opinion on issues that are open to debate – whether there is or is not a “new virus”, for example, but we do our utmost to NEVER publish factually inaccurate information. Our record on covid is unsurpassed for accuracy anywhere.

I notice you did not provide any actual ratios and just clumsily dodged the question about other sites, so it’s looking more and more as if you are some kind of troll or attention-seeker.

But thanks for your time anyway

To me offg has always been a website of three persons who met at the comment pages of the guardian, found out that they were censored over Maidan, then decided to start their own blog, and soon received thousand’s of readers since their stories were copied by zerohedge which is… a honey pot

Truth is, it took me a while…
Some of the commenters look genuine though. And OffG was spot on when all this madness around cv19 started.

Hence, OffG is going in a similar direction to ZeroHedge.

The signal to noise ratio is on the decline.

Is it financial? Is there external pressure to be less ‘off narrative’?

Perhaps, as things obtain a good reputation, and consequently get more popular, they attract more PTB attention and are necessarily de-radicalised.

Perhaps there are well-heeled donors (of PTB descent) that start supporting things like OffG, claiming to be on their side, and then start whingeing that an ever larger audience should be attracted, thus with more accessible (lowest common denominator) articles?

Look, Willem, they published your comment and I think you should give them credit for this. I agree with you, though, there have been a few writers (Writer Roddis, e.g. or that one/off author from Poland) who clearly came with an agenda attached. Of course this blog is being watched and the comments will be scrutinized. That’s fine by me, I don’t think it could be otherwise, or this blog would have been killed long ago.
Among the commentators there are also some who come with an agenda. E.g. they will immediately start getting rude when someone questions Corona Ausschuss or they will never admit the thought that ‘mass shootings’ could be staged. That’s fine by me, too. Anyway we need to sharpen up on the concept of Samisdat literature.

These are the days when anything on the internet has to practically walk on eggshells to keep from being labeled “misinformation.” And we’ve seen where that label leads.

I’m surprised OffG hasn’t already been sued by some stooge claiming to have been harmed by “misinformation.” And instead of giving such a stooge a good tongue lashing and sending him on his way, many Courts will take his complaint seriously.

Not that I’d ever want a blog of my own anyway; but I’d certainly never want one nowadays, given the almost rabid insanity sweeping the world in general, the media in particular.

I would say, as a rule of thumb: todays blogs had damned sight better smell like a honey-pot or they could end up on a rubbish heap.
