Great work Derrick. Look forward to seeing all the results from your Mexican adventure and hopefully we'll see you out again in Ben Wheeler at some point this year? Keep up the great work.

Can't wait to listen to this.

essentially decentralized media :) I know its more than that, when I first read about this I thought it interesting, now I hope this type of "sponsorship" becomes a thing more and more. We need people who are going to have the worlds interest in mind giving us news, not the rich/powerful.

Great interview enjoyed it

cryptos cryptos cryptos everywhere. Whooof. What the world be like in 5 years?

Long Slow Clap So good to have you back Ben. Great interview Derrick.

I could not be more enthused to have Ben Swann return to media, especially during this political climate. Welcome back! Your journalistic integrity is greatly appreciated and valued. It is very clear that it has not diminished and in fact may have grown even stronger. I am pleased to hear how you address the issues facing the world today. Great job with the interview. I look forward to more content from this channel.

noooooooooooooooooo... ben swann is a crypto-pimp. :-( say it isn't so...

See, you are not investigating anything, you are just interviewing an actual investigator about his investigations.

Can you link me to something you actually investigated?

This post would be so much better with a transcript, I don't want to watch a whole video but I am interested in Ben's story, because he actually investigated things and saw what happens when you do.

Also interesting to see your first postings related to pizzagate, would be very curious to hear what you think about the allegations against alefantis and podesta, the art collections, spirit cooking, laura silsby etc. Very curious.


bro, nobody cares what you want.


why do you call me bro and then say something absolutely dismissive?

we're not bros. you'd have to be able to answer like at least one critical question, or demonstrate that one thing about yourself was true.

you will notice I keep trying to bring our conversation to my repeated inquiries into your now pretty big-headed view of yourself as leader, investigator and you and your followers keep wanting to make it about me.

That's super, ultra, big-time manipulative and that's the tenth or so interaction with you that you've just been a jerk. Or is this the intern talking now?

One of the ideas of anarchy you might recall from all your studies of the Tao etc etc is that everyone gets a voice and no one gets told to shut up, or as you put it, 'no one cares what you want.'

That's profoundly authoritarian. Do you know this already and just had a moment of weakness(or lack of consciousness?) or am I educating you about anarchy and you just learned this?

Or is this just how you treat people who aren't your followers, they are 'the unconscious' masses who don't know how to resist as cool as you?
