Dear Readers,

2014 is about to end, and if you have been following our website closely, you will be aware that it has been one heck of a year! By paying attention to the truth behind events as they unfold on our planet, you begin to see the world more as it is rather than as you would like it to be. That knowledge can bring you a certain sense of liberation, where you finally understand what is wrong with our world. With that understanding, you can then begin to make the choices that will change your life for the better, despite the increasing chaos all around you. As we're fond of saying, 'knowledge protects'. And that is what we wish you for the incoming year: Knowledge and awareness, and hence protection.

Saying goodbye to the year 2014, we'd like to tell you a little bit about our accomplishments, since you may not be aware of them all. We have reason to be proud. There is always much more we can do, but this year, just as we thought our plates were too full, thanks to our readers' support, and the impetus from many new volunteers around the world, we have been expanding!

The SOTT Talk Radio Show has now become the SOTT Radio Network, with three different shows: "Behind the Headlines" (Sundays), "The Truth Perspective" (Saturdays), and "Atando cabos" (Saturdays, in Spanish). Listeners from all over the world listen in and participate. If you haven't tuned in yet, you're missing out! More shows are planned for 2015, including a show on health, psychology and well-being, to be launched in early January.

Some articles we picked up this year 'went viral' in 2014 (such as this one, this one and this one), and we have also been producing much more original content. In addition to our SOTT Focus articles, SOTT Exclusive articles analyze and summarize breaking news events and global trends. Meanwhile, our Earth Changes Summary monthly videos are now being translated into multiple languages, including French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Croatian, Russian, and Vietnamese. Recognizing how important these "signs of the times" are, people have been sharing them far and wide on social media.

This year we also launched SOTT WorldView, a visual, interactive map of world events that lets you read the news in a whole new way by seeing the links between different types of events for any chosen time period. Check it out, and search according to the parameters that interest you most. We have also been working hard to release, early in 2015, SOTT.net in 5 new languages: Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Greek and Croatian. More and more people are going to be able to read our news, without being hindered by language barriers!


2014 saw an all-out propaganda campaign against Vladimir Putin and Russia following the US-led coup d'état in Ukraine. In response, Sott.net published the open letter to President Putin that you can find at dearputin.com. To date, the letter has been translated into 18 languages and gathered almost 60,000 signatures.

Last, but not least, we also published some new books in 2014:

The Secret History of the World, vol. III - Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection

by Pierre Lescaudron, with Laura Knight-Jadczyk

Jet Stream meanderings, Gulf Stream slow-downs, hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, meteor fireballs, tornadoes, deluges, sinkholes, and noctilucent clouds have been on the rise since the turn of the century. Have proponents of man-made global warming been proven correct, or is something else, something much bigger, happening on our planet? While mainstream science depicts these Earth changes as unrelated, Pierre Lescaudron applies findings from the Electric Universe paradigm and plasma physics to suggest that they might in fact be intimately related, and stem from a single common cause: the close approach of our Sun's 'twin' and an accompanying cometary swarm.

Citing historical records, the author reveals a strong correlation between periods of authoritarian oppression with catastrophic and cosmically-induced natural disasters. Referencing metaphysical research and information theory, Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection is a ground-breaking attempt to re-connect modern science with the ancient understanding that the human mind and states of collective human experience can influence cosmic and earthly phenomena. Covering a broad range of scientific fields, and including over 250 figures and 1,000 sources, Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection is presented in an accessible format for anyone seeking to understand the signs of our times.

Manufactured Terror

by Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley

In this SOTT.net anthology, Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley cover the biggest mass shootings and terror attacks in recent memory: from the Fort Hood, Sandy Hook, Washington Navy Yard and Aurora theater shootings to the Boston Marathon bombing and Toulouse attacks. Included are original, on-the-spot reports and subsequent analyses showing the contradictions and distortions in the official accounts. After looking at all the evidence, it's clear we have not been told the truth about these attacks. From eyewitness reports of multiple shooters to intelligence-agency connections, the major attacks in recent years show all the hallmarks of manufactured terror.

Along with the weekly radio show, Joe Quinn was also interviewed several times by Iranian state News broadcaster Press TV. You can watch his interviews on the SOTT Video player at the bottom of the main Sott.net page

Professor Arkadiusz Jadczyk's latest book was also published this year by World Scientific:

Quantum Fractals : From Heisenberg's Uncertainty to Barnsley's Fractality

by Arkadiusz Jadczyk, PhD

Starting with numerical algorithms resulting in new kinds of amazing fractal patterns on the sphere, this book describes the theory underlying these phenomena and indicates possible future applications. The book also explores the following questions:
  • What are fractals?
  • How do fractal patterns emerge from quantum observations and relativistic light aberration effects?
  • What are the open problems with iterated function systems based on Mobius
  • transformations?
  • Can quantum fractals be experimentally detected?
  • What are quantum jumps?
  • Is quantum theory complete and/or universal?
  • Is the standard interpretation of Heisenberg's uncertainty relations accurate?
  • What is Event Enhanced Quantum Theory and how does it differs from spontaneous localization theories?
  • What are the possible applications of quantum fractals?
Readership: Advanced undergraduate students and professionals in quantum chaos, as well as philosophers of science.

While all of our efforts were appreciated by you, our readers, it seems that they were received with much less enthusiasm by the PTB. Earlier this year our servers came under a sustained and professional attack, forcing us to upgrade to a bigger, more diversified, and therefore secure, server array. Rest assured that, regardless of the attempts to silence us, (and by implication you) we will continue to ensure that the vital information reaches all those who wish to receive it.

Sott.net and YOU

Over the years, we've held fund-raisers for specific goals, and the response has always been gratifying; obviously, many people do appreciate our work. YOUR contributions - whether as direct donations or product purchases - keep us up and running on a daily basis and we are immensely thankful to all. What you have helped us accomplish over the past twelve years is amazing. Thanks to you, our readers and your support, SOTT readership has increased from merely thousands to the millions. In addition, you have spoken via Facebook, and we currently have over 103,000 likes across our 4 SOTT sites: English, Spanish, French, and German.

Together, we are making a difference!

As many readers know, SOTT.net refuses corporate advertising and sponsorship, and achieves its objectives via its own resources and reader donations. Any and all 'advertisements' you see on our site are either ads for our own products, which directly support our work, or non-commercial support for others engaged in the fight against psychopathy and its effects on our world. This is how we manage to keep this website going, and try to provide you with as objective a picture of the global reality as possible - day in, day out.

All of this highlights how important YOUR SUPPORT is, especially in the face of a tanking economy. The Fight Against Lies goes on and we very much need your help to keep the lighthouse going until we reach that point where knowledge and awareness goes exponential, at which point, that Happy New Year we all hope for might become a real possibility. This is why your help now is more important than ever. And so, before the end of the fiscal year, we would just like to remind you that if you have extra income this year, donating to SOTT, a program of Quantum Future Group, Inc., a U.S. non-profit organization, is tax-deductible in the US. Wouldn't you rather give your money to a good cause, to the fight for truth and real information, than be funding War and Corruption?

Make your (tax deductible in the US) donation today. You can send a check or money-order by mail to:
SOTT/Quantum Future Group, Inc.
295, Scratch Branch Road
Otto, NC 28763
USA
Or you can donate via Credit Card or Paypal. For all readers outside of the US, please consider making your donation to our new French non-profit Community via Paypal (for direct bank transfer details please feel free to email us @ sott@sott.net)
