SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Branded - UK Govt Launches Coordinated Attack on British 'Rogan'

Popular online commentator Russell Brand is the latest truth-speaker to feel the wrath of totalitarian corporate media executives and global government institutions. Revealing the fruits of a "years-long, in-depth investigation" into everything Brand has ever said or done, British legacy media gatekeepers have unearthed four women they allege were "raped or emotionally abused" by the ex-celebrity.

On the back of this, it seems, they hope to either induce Brand into shutting up and/or losing public viewership. Meanwhile, the farcical indictments against Trump continue, with the judge in his federal case (concerning "election subversion by questioning the result of the 2020 US presidential election") refusing to recuse herself following her harsh sentencing of January 6th "insurrectionists."

Also in this NewsReal, Joe and Niall highlight the security breach at RFK Jr's Los Angeles campaign rally, discuss the US Congress revelation that CIA scientific experts were bribed in early 2020 into supporting the zoonosis theory for Covid's origins over the lab-leak theory, and survey the epic destruction wrought by Storm Daniels in Libya - 'man-made' climate change indeed...

SOTT Focus: The WHO's Proposed Amendments Will Increase Man-Made Pandemics - Dr. Meryl Nass

plague mask
This report is designed to help readers think about some big topics: how to really prevent pandemics and biological warfare, how to assess proposals by the WHO and its members for responding to pandemics, and whether we can rely on our health officials to navigate these areas in ways that make sense and will help their populations.

We start with a history of biological arms control and rapidly move to the COVID pandemic, eventually arriving at plans to protect the future.

Weapons of Mass Destruction: Chem/Bio

Traditionally, the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) have been labelled Chemical, Biological, Radiologic, and Nuclear (CBRN).

The people of the world don't want them used on us — for they are cheap ways to kill and maim large numbers of people quickly. And so international treaties were created to try to prevent their development (only in the later treaties) and use (in all the biological arms control treaties). First was the Geneva Protocol of 1925, following the use of poison gases and limited biological weapons in World War I, banning the use of biological and chemical weapons in war. The US and many nations signed it, but it took 50 years for the US to ratify it, and during those 50 years the US asserted it was not bound by the treaty.

SOTT Focus: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - August 2023: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

ecs0823
So-called historic wildfires in the U.S., Greece, and Canada filled corporate media headlines while blaming "global boiling." However, the annual number of wildfires for 2023 remains average. In Greece, the annual average did increase moderately, and arsonists were to blame. Social media was flooded with convincing points and speculations, blaming the globalist psychos' minions for starting the fires in order to spread fears of man-made climate change to push Net Zero policies throughout the Western world, and also, to take advantage of the aftermath to buy land at a fraction of their original price.

Accusations of land-grabbing grew even louder after the Lahaina fires when private companies "generously" offered to buy the affected land. But then, Governor Josh Green, said he would not allow the land to end up in private hands, but that the government could buy them. Is this good news for the people of Lahaina? Or will the land, once handed over to the government, end up in the hands of private companies anyway? That remains to be seen.

But whether it was natural, man-made, or both, the official death toll from the fires is 115. Considering the population of Lahaina, that's a huge death toll. In addition, Maui's major reported that 850 people were still reported missing, and suddenly the number went down to 60.

There are many things to blame for this tragedy:

- Government incompetence.
- Laughable budget for wildfire safety.
- Exceptionally flammable grass was introduced in 2020.
- Extreme winds.
- No warning sirens.
- State officials refused to release water.
- High voltage cables cut and laid over dry grass.
- Police blockades that kept people from fleeing the deadly fires.
- Utility trucks blocked roads as people tried to flee.

Later, the government erected a fence around the affected areas, and fire survivors were not allowed to return to what was left of their homes and businesses. For "their protection", they said. Or is there something else they want to hide?

In early August, the warm-mongers were still pushing the "world is boiling" nonsense, while the US had a cooler-than-average summer, and northern Italy, the Dolomites, and the Pyrenees were hit with summer snow!

Then they change the narrative a bit and blame global warming for the extreme flooding around the world, yet, as we have shared before, it's all part of natural cycles, pointing out a shift to colder global temperatures.

And again it has nothing to do with CO2:
Recent research suggests carbon dioxide molecules have little consequential impact on outgoing radiation, and that today's climate models assign fundamentally erroneous global temperature effects to CO2.
But that doesn't matter because the goal of the globalist psychos and their minions - the corporate media and paid "experts" - is to fuel the fires of fear and hysteria. However, it seems that fewer and fewer people are buying into their lies, as reality sometimes reveals itself quite dramatically.

The Ukrainian counter-offensive is clearly not moving anywhere, yet it's still 'full-steam ahead' for the Western imperialists' 'total war on Russia'. And they're winning, but only in their own minds. In the real world, the G20 summit in India this week confirms that the Global South/East is not following the West into its Grand Delusion. As the Ukraine/NATO-Russia War grinds on, omens mount of coming major turmoil, not least the rash of record rainfall bringing flash-flooding the world over in recent days...

SOTT Focus: Ukraine's Defeat Could Mean the End of NATO in Its Current Form

As the West's proxy war in Ukraine slips inexorably towards utter failure, the neocons behind the debacle are faced with dwindling avenues of retreat.

Early confidence that Russia, in its current form, would collapse under the pressure of the harshest sanctions regime in history failed to materialize. Early Russian miscalculations on the battlefield were not followed by a military meltdown, but by a pragmatic display of strategic adaptability, which is begrudgingly admired in the military war rooms of the West. The Russian army, far from falling apart, has steeled itself into making bold decisions to retreat when prudent and advance when required, both of which have proven devastating for their Ukrainian opponents. It follows that, as the Western political elites that cultivated this conflict peer into another winter of political, military, and potentially economic discontent, it is now that we potentially face the most dangerous period in Europe since the outbreak of WWII.

The catalyst for a wider war in Europe isn't, in fact, a limited conflict in Ukraine in itself, one that started in 2014 and, notably, had been largely ignored by Western powers for almost a decade. The real issue is that NATO, which is currently engaged in a proxy War with Russia, is facing a 'damned if you do and damned if you don't' scenario regarding its growing military involvement in Ukraine. If the US-led bloc escalates further as defeat looms, it could likely lead to direct confrontation with Russia. If it doesn't, its proxy will collapse and leave Russia victorious, a fate once utterly unthinkable in Brussels, Washington, and London, but now becoming a nightmarish reality.

SOTT Focus: Postmodern Tyranny: States of Deception from 9/11 to Covid-19

covered in ash
It's been well over a year now since the health scare dubbed the Covid-19 pandemic has had any widespread impact upon the lives of the vast majority of humanity. Since the "fog of war" has lifted, so to speak, there has been very little introspection regarding the knee-jerk authoritarianism imposed upon humanity in the liberal press or mainstream academia. Eerie parallels connect the panic stirred up during the health crisis with the reaction to 9/11. There is also plenty of circumstantial evidence of prior knowledge and pre-planning for both of these events. In their wake, mass hysteria, government propaganda, tyranny, censorship, and irrational belief systems spawned out of each, supported by ruling class interests and mass media mouthpieces.

Although many policies related to the global war on terror and the pandemic certainly have fascistic and totalitarian impulses, there are key differences. Whereas the fascist and totalitarian rely on a single despot, and the marginalization of minority groups, postmodern tyranny operates according to the flows of late capitalism: diversity and inclusion are encouraged; power is spread through a corporate oligarchy, as well as political, military, and now medical hierarchies; and devastating economic and social effects are engendered by "absent causes"; i.e., abstract engines of capital: stock fluctuations, algorithms, financial instruments and various Finance/Insurance/Real Estate (FIRE) sector bubbles and scams.

The public is predictably bewildered by a revolving cast of bureaucrats and elites with varying amounts of sociopathic and narcissistic traits; however, the personal attributes of the cast members are extraneous to capital accumulation, imperialism, and the liquidation of nature. It is fine to use phrases like fascist or totalitarian in response to government policies for rhetorical effect; however, most Americans do not feel that way or use that terminology, which harkens back to a simpler era of boot stamping. We are rather enmeshed in a dictatorship of capital.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Gabon Coup: ANOTHER French 'Former' Colony Breaks Free

The extraordinary sequence of military coups continues in West Africa, where the small but resource-rich country of Gabon last week overthrew its pro-French 'neo-colonialist' puppet regime of 55 years. What does this all mean? Are these coups in Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger and Gabon all coordinated? If so, what might Russia or China have to do with them? Will this development affect mass migration to the West? Will NATO intervene to 'protect democracy' in the region? Joe and Niall bring some historical and geopolitical context for answering these questions...

SOTT Focus: My Journey From Illness And Despair Towards Truth And God

An awakening

Whether religious or not, I think many readers here will relate to some of these experiences.

In 2014 I was working for a UK organization which adjudicates financial disputes. The work was interesting, but the organization was going through a structural change which made no sense. Our work began to be micro-managed and woke ideology started creeping into the office.

That same year, I collapsed and was very ill from a major bleed due to a duodenal ulcer. It wasn't really what is known as a near-death experience (NDA) but during my recovery I felt different spiritually and used the time to reflect on life. Before I hadn't embraced any one religion but was always open-minded.

In 2017, under a new tyrannical manager, for the first time I pushed back. I documented the bullying and told the organization to leave me alone to do my job. They agreed and, overnight, my stress disappeared and a confidence I'd never had helped me to become a trade union representative, join the organization's Christian Fellowship and even the Muslim Book Club.

I was always interested in geopolitics and history and attended some outside work events discussing the war on Syria and the part played by the Western media in distorting the truth in successive wars. After my first event, I sensed a cloud lift and a feeling of vindication of my views. I felt destined to write about it all. I published many articles in independent media about Syria, religion, the mainstream media and mental health.

Meanwhile, at work the toxicity increased and while I was coping better, I was relieved to be offered voluntary redundancy to pursue my further research and writing.

After a year's 'honeymoon period' of feeling liberated from the control freaks, the 'pandemic' landed. I could see instantly the lockdowns and other measures made no sense, so I researched hard, particularly around the globalists, their secret societies and malign influence on world events. To my horror I realized the world was in the grip of a coup.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: That Mugshot, 'Wild'-Fires, BRICS+, Putin Offs Prigozhin?

The latest 'indictment' against Donald Trump for what amounts to Crimes Against The Regime has produced a 'mugshot' that symbolizes the biggest political 'own goal' yet for the Democratic Party. Seriously, what the heck are they even thinking?! Trump's even popular in the hood now! Meanwhile, in Russia, Yevgeny Prigozhin is no more: he appears to have been shot/blown out of the sky outside Moscow, ending a half-year of bizarre and politically dangerous antics from the ex-owner of Wagner PMC.

Also on this NewsReal, Joe and Niall discuss the rash of highly-mediatized wildfires around the world throughout August: is it 'climate change'? Or is it people who want you to believe it's climate change? Either way, the media narrativizers are clearly capitalizing on them to attract clicks and drive home fear. Good news is, BRICS doubled in size last week as de-dollarization, multipolarity, and democratization gather pace. A process of global transformation is underway and there's nothing the imperialists in Washington and London can do to stop it...

The Agenda of the Milesian School

In 1997, William Mullen, Professor of Classical Studies at Bard College, gave a conference talk entitled: Natural Catastrophes during Bronze Age Civilisation in which he outlined what he saw as the Agenda of the Milesian School.
Topics held in common by the first three pre-Socratic philosophers from Miletos in the Sixth Century B.C.E., Thales, Anaximander, and Anaximenes, and by Xenophanes[1] from neighbouring Colophon, taken together may be viewed as constituting the agenda of a "Milesian School".

The agenda included a survey of the known kosmos (the orderly arrangement of the inhabited world surrounded by regularly moving heavenly bodies); redefinitions of divinity; and theories of the natural processes, constantly in operation, by which both kosmos and divinity are to be understood. It also included explanations of phenomena most men deemed terrifying: thunder, lightning, earthquakes, eclipses, and periodic destruction of the kosmos itself. It set about to explain these phenomena in terms of the same elemental processes (transformations of water, rarefaction and condensation of air, separating out of fire, air, water and earth, periodic reabsorption of these elements into a state of dynamic equilibrium) as it invoked to explain the orderly arrangement of the earth and the heavenly bodies. In so doing, it implied the baselessness of the traditional Olympian religion which attributed lightning and earthquakes to whims of Zeus and Poseidon and world-destructions to battles of the sky-gods.

The ultimate Milesian agenda may therefore have been to liberate people from paralysing fear of the immediate recurrence of celestial disturbances in the recent past. By insisting that world-destructions occurred only in vast cycles of time (such as a "great year" whose winter solstice was Deluge and summer solstice Conflagration) the Milesian School was schematically distorting memories of recent disturbances, and its activity may be seen as part of a general pattern of oblivion and psychological distancing common to all cultures after the end of the Bronze Age catastrophes. But by insisting that these world-destructions occurred only as the result of unalterable elemental processes, it was also erecting a proto-scientific bulwark against apocalyptic thinking and behavior.[2]
