SOTT Earth Changes Video Summary - July 2014

Signs of the Times in July 2014

© SOTT.net
The seventh installment in our monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during July 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

As geo-political events took a crazy turn in July - with Israel launching its most destructive 'war' on Gaza on the Palestinians since the Nakba, agents of the Western Empire blowing Malaysian Airlines MH17 out of the sky to demonize Putin, and Kiev scaling up its massacre of Eastern Ukrainians - the planet reflected this chaos with even more extreme weather.

Numerous meteor fireballs were seen across swathes of the U.S. and Russia; intense electrical storms pounded the U.S. and Europe; enormous quantities of hail were dumped in places used to scorching heat this time of year; 'tornado season' continued its year-round cycle all over the world; devastating landslides killed hundreds in India and China; people and cattle everywhere were killed by lightning; hurricane-force winds left destruction in Southern Russia and Australia; and just about everywhere was inundated with deluges of rain.

Meanwhile, the planet's EM field has dropped significantly in recent months, while the Sun was practically spotless this month, despite the fact we're currently at Solar Max in Sunspot Cycle 24. July was the coldest in U.S. history, despite record-breaking wildfires and drought in the western half of the country. Between the hail, the downpours, the cold and the storms, farmers everywhere are facing severe losses from crop damage.

Inexplicable mass animal die-offs continue, with dead sea creatures washing up on lakeshores and coastlines around the world. More enormous sinkholes appeared, notably three 'crater-holes' in northern Russia and a 100-feet-wide sinkhole in Florida that witnesses say 'exploded up in the air'. Rounding out the month was an unbelievable series of explosions in Taiwan that gouged whole streets and injured hundreds of people.

Tornadoes in Boston, rivers and seas turning blood red, fire falling from the skies, snow in July, lakes appearing in the Sahara overnight... we are definitely NOT not in Kansas anymore!

The "Middle Ground" Fallacy in Gaza

I had a discussion on Facebook recently over the Gaza conflict. I was posting about the horrific abuses of Israel, he was countering with the supposed equal abuses of Hamas. After we traded points a few times I came to see where our difference of opinion actually lay. You see, fundamentally we both see things from the same side - war is ridiculous and the atrocities of this conflict are completely inexcusable. Killing children or civilians is completely psychopathic. We both want an end to this conflict. And yet we were arguing.

Where my friend was hung up was that the article I had posted wasn't "balanced". It was calling out Israel on war crimes, human rights violations and the like, but it wasn't citing any of the equally horrific things that Hamas has done. The familiar "human shield" argument was trotted out, as could be expected.

On the one hand, this position is really indicative of someone who is not properly informed and relies on liberal media for information. In other words, it's the Zionist position, that both sides are equally at fault and that the situation is "complicated", and that Israel has a right to defend itself (against its prisoners, apparently).

Pro-Palestinian protesters beaten by Israeli soccer players during football friendly in Austria

On July 24th, 2014, during renewed Israeli attacks on Palestine, a pre-season friendly soccer match in Austria between Israeli team Maccabi Haifa and French team Lille had to be abandoned in the 86th minute after pro-Palestinian protesters ran onto the pitch waving Palestinian flags and shouting "Free Palestine!"

A fight ensued between some of the soccer players, the protesters, and security personnel. The event made international news, and the protesters were roundly accused of "violently attacking the players" and of "being anti-Semitic" - with Israel again cast in the role of the victim.

On closer examination of the available video footage (see video analysis below), we see a rather different picture. Four protesters ran across the field, but clearly didn't have violence in mind. All they seemed to want to do was get a message across by reminding people that Apartheid Israel is currently engaged in war crimes. Frankly, Austria should be censured for hosting an Israeli sports team in its country at this time. Whatever happened to Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions?

Some say Israeli sports, music, academia and other cultural activities shouldn't be lumped together with the Israeli state's actions. Too bad. If they choose to be associated with that ZioNazi entity, they must accept pariah status and face the consequences of international opprobrium.

Contrary to what the mainstream media claimed, the first 'violent act', which started the fight, was carried out by an Israeli player, who brought one of the protesters to the ground.

Asymmetric Warfare: MH17 False-Flag Terror and the 'War' on Gaza

When MH370 vanished into thin air on March 8th this year, an international search-and-rescue party scanned two of the world's oceans, pored over satellite images and radar readings, and consulted automated communication relays between parts of the plane and their manufacturers that monitor aircraft system performance in real-time. Despite these multiple layers of hi-tech monitoring systems, there is still no trace of the missing Boeing 777-200ER. Or so we've been told. All 239 passengers and crew are officially reported as missing, presumed dead. Planes have literally disappeared in the past, but none with so many people onboard.

As if that weren't extraordinary enough, here we are 4 months later and a second Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777-200ER and its passengers and crew have been 'taken out', although this time in a more easily discernible manner. There is as yet no direct connection between the two events, although only the most ardent scientific materialist could claim complete indifference to the fact that they're the same type of aircraft used by the same airline company, as well as the numerological synchronicity of a Boeing-777 with flight number MH17 crashing on 07/17/2014, exactly 17 years to the day since its maiden flight on 07/17/1997.

The first event seemed to be random and caught the world's media completely by surprise. But the second occurred at 'ground zero' of the 'new cold war' we find ourselves in. Shouting the loudest about the crash of MH17 is, as usual, the US government. From the get-go, it 'knew' exactly how it happened, and exactly who to blame for the deaths of 298 innocent people: the "Russian-backed terrorists" in eastern Ukraine had "shot MH17 down with an SA (surface-to-air) series missile shot from a BUK missile-launcher near where the plane came down in terrorist-controlled territory." The 'evidence' to support their claims, however, is non-existent, unless you count "social media" and the US brand of "common sense" as evidence.

Who shot down Malaysian Airlines Flight 17? New Cold War, same old propaganda


East Ukrainian rebels inspect the crash site of MH17
Is everyone enjoying the show? You know...the ridiculously transparent attempt by the entire Western media and their political 'elite' masters to use the alleged shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 as part of their 'asymmetric' warfare against Russia and Vladimir Putin. Even the supposedly 'leftist' UK Guardian newspaper has been running headlines like World demands answers from Russia after Malaysia Airlines plane's destruction over Ukraine and Hilary Clinton (wasn't she fired?) wasted no time in declaring authoritatively that Russian rebels were responsible for the downing of the plane and that "Putin has gone too far". Clinton's statement clearly exposes her own and her former government's complete lack of respect for due process, truth, and the extreme prejudice with which they both view the Russian Federation. It's also clearly complete and utter BS because no one could possibly know who was responsible for the shooting down of Flight MH17 just a few hours after it fell out of the sky.

Then again, the US government never did let the facts get in the way of a good dose of propaganda, and to be fair, from the point of view of Clinton and her ilk, Putin has gone 'too far', but it has nothing to do with any Malaysian aircraft.

SOTT Earth Changes Video Summary - June 2014

Signs of the Times in June 2014

© SOTT.net
The sixth installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during June 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

While billions have been glued to TV screens for the soccer World Cup this past month, Nature put on a show that saw major flooding on every continent, not least in Brazil where 250 people were killed by flash-flooding and landslides, and a huge sinkhole swallowed streets just miles from one of the host nation's venues. Mid-18th century flood-level records were broken in the U.S. and E.U. There were also a LOT of tornadoes and waterspouts in places that don't normally see them.

The month began and ended with dramatic fireball appearances in the UK. The first one was really weird: a fireball turning circles in the sky! While many are attributing 'intelligence' to this burning object, accounts from previous eras of environmental and social upheaval describe such 'fire in the sky', whose gravity-defying behavior can be explained via plasma physics.

Then there were the hailstorms. 'Baseball-sized hail' used to mean something rare and freakish. Now it's positively common! Last month they were sweeping away piles of hail with diggers in Sao Paulo; this month they did likewise in eastern Spain, Tokyo and Turkey. The damage caused runs into billions of dollars. Iowa's corn crop was savaged, farmers in Turkey are devastated, and this year's fruit crop in Valencia, Spain, was all but wiped out.

Spectacular electrical storms in summertime aren't unusual, but snowfall in regions adjacent to territory scorched by wildfires are: despite earlier heatwaves, snow returned to much of Scandinavia, the Rockies and Western Canada. Speaking of wildfires, so far this year Russia has seen twice the number of wildfires reported last year, while in the U.S. they have already surpassed the 2013 total.

Get ready for the Greatest Show on Earth!

It has been brought to our attention that footage included in this Video Summary of record-breaking flooding in Hungary is in fact from last year, early June 2013.

Smoking

Let's all light up! What you don't know about tobacco

Everyone knows that smoking is a health hazard. Even Big Tobacco behaves in a way that screams 'GUILTY!'

Historically, smoking various plants was believed to be beneficial. But today, we know better, right?

Assuming smoking is unhealthy, the science should therefore support 'what everyone knows'.

But, as the following Sott.net-produced video shows, it doesn't.

Psycho 'Reality Creators' open 'gates of hell' in Iraq with proxy Jihadis


Jihadi tanks! What's next?!
In case you were wondering why, despite the sterling efforts of the Bush and Obama governments to bring 'freedom and democracy' to Iraq, life there appears to be worse than ever, a brief review of the nature of American and European largesse that has been bestowed on the Iraqi people over the past twenty-odd years may be instructive.

First there was the 1991 Iraq War turkey shoot that killed thousands of Iraqi civilians and killed or wounded over 100,000 Iraqi soldiers; then followed the 10 years of regular US bombing runs and the willful genocide of Iraqis, especially children, via the 'food for oil' sanctions. Then came the second Gulf War turkey shoot, justified (not 'officially', but it wouldn't have happened otherwise) by the self-inflicted wound that was the 9/11 attacks, that involved a 10-year occupation by the US military and the further direct slaughter of at least 1.5 million Iraqis by the US military and the displacement of 4 million more.


The 'good old days'- Gulf 'war' 1 and the highway of death. Military and civilian vehicles alike, and their occupants, blown to pieces by the USA
By 2011, with the country in ruins and the the bulk of US troops preparing to leave, US military 'advisers' hastily cobbled together an 'Iraqi army'. Unfortunately, the tribal nature of Iraqi society, the serious divisions between Sunni and Shia that had been provoked by 10 years of bloody foreign occupation, including the use of US-sponsored death squads (aka 'al-qaeda'), and the installation of a Shia-led government in a country previously dominated by the minority Sunnis under Saddam, made the very idea of a united Iraqi army a fantasy. But those details were of little concern to the occupiers. A few major weapons and oil deals and the US was outta there. Thanks for the memories... for a while.

Next Stop - Syria

Then came the (Israeli-sponsored) plan to 'remake' Syria. But when it was decided that a US invasion and occupation of that country was too problematic in the sense that it might set the entire Middle East alight and threaten Israeli sensitivities, plan B was to use the same fundamentalist jihadi nut-jobs from Iraq to start a 'revolution' that the majority of the Syrian people wanted nothing to do with. But after three years of direct and indirect funding and arming of the jihadis by the USA, Saudi Arabia Qatar and Turkey, and massive bloodshed, with several Syrian cities reduced almost to rubble, Assad was still there, the Syrian army were prevailing against the nut-jobs, and the psychopaths at the US state department, the CIA and in Tel Aviv, were getting antsy. 'Can't we just have NATO bomb the crap out of the place?' A pretext was needed, and last year the Saudis were used to supply sarin gas to the jihadis (or a Saudi black op team did it themselves), who happily sacrificed the lives of 1,000 Syrian civilians in Ghouta in an effort to blame the Assad government for 'war crimes' and justify NATO (i.e. USA) bombing.

SOTT Earth Changes Video Summary - May 2014

Signs of the Times in May 2014

© Sott.net
The fifth installment in our new monthly series, the following video compiles footage of 'signs of the times' from around the world during May 2014 - 'earth changes', extreme weather and planetary upheaval.

Highlights this month include: wildfires breaking out in places where snow is falling a.) nearby, and b.) way further south. Several huge dust storms smothering cities in the U.S., the Middle East and Central Asia, while up near the Arctic Circle, Alaska's largest ever forest fire consumed over 200,000 acres. A record-breaking spring heatwave in southwestern U.S. combined with incredibly destructive wildfires to San Diego into a warzone. 150,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes as multiple 'fire-nadoes' torched suburbs.

Unbelievable quantities of hail were dumped in tropical Sao Paulo, Brazil, as well as across the U.S., while record-breaking rainfall led to flooding in many places throughout the U.S., the Middle East, southern China, Africa, and Europe. Spectacular electrical storms swept across the U.S. and Europe, while over 3,000 occurred in the Balkans following the worst flooding since record-keeping began, and a horrific 'double-landslide' in Afghanistan buried 2,700 people alive.

Notable mass fish kills happened in New Jersey, Los Angeles and Texas, while ice was still floating on the Great Lakes despite a spring heatwave. Three feet of snow hit Denver despite massive wildfires breaking out elsewhere in the Rockies. Two tornadoes touched down in Ukraine, two days apart, and a number of massive sinkholes opened up, including one that nearly swallowed traffic on a busy street in Russia.

Connecting the dots...

Have proponents of man-made global warming been proven correct?

Or is something else, something much bigger, happening on our planet?

While mainstream science claims the phenomena covered in this video series are unrelated, they in fact appear to stem from a single common cause.

In times past, people understood that the human mind and states of collective human experience influence cosmic and earthly phenomena.

Historical records reveal a strong correlation between periods of authoritarian oppression with catastrophic and cosmically-induced natural disasters.

Isla Vista shooter Elliot Rodger: Window into ponerology


Another mass shooting in the US
Details are still coming in regarding the murders in Isla Vista, California on May 23. Elliot Rodger, the suspect who was found dead from a bullet wound to his head in his BMW after the shootings, apparently stabbed to death his two roommates (Cheng Yuan Hong and George Chen) and a third man (Weihan Wang) in his apartment, before shooting and killing two young women (Veronica Elizabeth Weiss, Katherine Breann Cooper) outside the Alpha Phi sorority house and continuing on to the local IV Deli Market, where he then shot and killed Christopher Ross Michael-Martinez and injured an additional thirteen people. His victims ranged in age from 19 to 22 years old (Rodger himself was 22).

With the sheer number of mass shootings bearing all the hallmarks of psyop stage-managing (see SOTT's own Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley's Manufactured Terror), it's easy to wonder if there's more to this story than meets the eye. Most of the reports so far seem fairly straightforward. Elliot Rodger had a history of mental illness, 'odd behaviour', and his moral decline leading to the horrific events last Friday was documented by Rodger himself in vlogs uploaded to YouTube in the weeks before the murders and a 140-page 'manifesto' distributed to several people that day, including his parents. While there's no suggestion in his videos and writings of an accomplice, an early report did mention that a second suspect had been apprehended:
One woman, identified as Sierra, told NewsChannel 3 that she was approached by two men in a black BMW. The driver waved a small handgun and asked, '"Hey, what's up?"'
Then there's the weird near-coincidence of an active-shooter drill scheduled to take place at the same campus 5 days later:
Meeting of the Board of Directors of the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District, April 29, 2014

[...]

"Operations attended a table top exercise for the May 28 "Active Shooter Drill" at Santa Barbara City College. Multiple agencies were there, "fine tuning" the different roles, protocols, and schedules."
Assuming for now that this was the work of a 'lone nut', I want to examine some of Rodger's bizarre behavior in the run-up to his going postal. We've heard a few opinions in the media regarding what if anything could have been done to prevent this tragedy. Most of them, in my opinion, are flat-out wrong. For example, Richard Martinez, the father of one of the victims, blames "irresponsible politicians and the NRA" for his son's death:
'Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA.

'They talk about gun rights. What about Chris's right to live? When will this insanity stop? When will enough people say 'Stop this madness, we don't have to live like this.' Too many have died.

'We should say to ourselves: Not one more.'
It's an understandable sentiment, especially coming at a time so soon after the loss of his son. But aside from the fact that Rodger seems to have been intent on committing the murders no matter what and with whatever means available (e.g., the knives he used to murder his roommates), gun laws are unlikely to make a difference when it comes to crimes of this sort. The problem runs deeper than laws and policies.

Comment: Correction 10 June 2014

Sent in by a SOTT.net reader:
Santa Barbara City College is where the shooter was going to school but it is miles away from Isla Vista and the University of California at Santa Barbara, which is where the shooting took place. There are two different schools, one is a 2-year community college (SBCC) and the other is a four-year prestigious university that is part of the state-wide UC system (UCSB).
This means that the active-shooter drill goes from being a "weird near-coincidence" to a probably unrelated event.
