Modern Music: Promoting pedophilia to adults and sexual debauchery to children

Image
Human beings seem to thrive both cognitively and affectively when they are exposed to any number of the infinite combinations of melody, harmony and rhythm that make up a particular piece of what we know as "music". Music has the potential to enrich our lives, to enable us to learn about ourselves and others around us and experience and interact with reality in dynamic and creative ways. Music can have profound and unique effects on our well-being, it can help us cope with the stresses that life brings and can make us feel happier in ourselves, and it can also make our brains happier! But there's a darker side to music.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary - April 2015: Extreme Weather and Planetary Upheaval

© Sott.net
Here's a run-down of April's 'signs'...

Raging wildfires in Siberia destroyed thousands of homes and injured hundreds of people. Late in the month, on the anniversary of the world's worst nuclear accident, wildfires broke out within the Chernobyl plant exclusion zone in northern Ukraine. Both the Middle East and China experienced their "worst sandstorms in years", while huge dust storms also brought chaos to parts of both the American and Russian West. There were devastating landslides in Indonesia and Afghanistan, and a slow-moving 'horizontal landslide' in a Siberian town... which was also the setting last month for another bizarre 'exploding crater-hole'.

Settlements in the 'driest place on Earth', Atacama Desert in Chile, were washed away after being inundated for the second month in a row. Severe flooding also hit drought-plagued Sao Paulo for the 4th time in 6 months, while melting snowpack combined with torrential rain to inundate parts of the US South and eastern Kazakhstan. Inches - and sometimes feet - of hail turned streets into rivers in the US, India, and Australia, where a "once-in-a-decade" storm battered the capital Sydney. The US Midwest saw multiple violent tornado outbreaks, while powerful tornadoes devastated communities in India and Brazil.

But none of this rocking and rolling was as destructive as the strongest earthquake to hit the Himalayas in over 80 years. The 7.9M quake pretty much destroyed Nepal, set off avalanches that buried Mount Everest's base camp, and killed people in northern India, Bangladesh, and Tibet. The quake's death toll could reach 10,000 people, and has left millions more homeless. The most spectacular event of the month occurred in southern Chile, where Calbuco volcano exploded to life after being dormant for 40 years, spewing lava and ash thousands of feet into the air...

Restoration of Historical Truth: Russia Won World War II

"He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past."

- George Orwell

Today, the deliberate inversion of historical fact by Western media and officials is so widespread that it is subverting the very foundation of historical reasoning. The principal aim of these distortions of public perception is the conquest of our minds, and corruption of our ability to separate truth from lies, all for the purpose of deluding people into accepting servitude and atrocities.

The Western media machine attempts to rewrite the history of WWII by blaming the Soviet Union for starting the war in Europe , or at least for being a major aggressor and partner-in-evil alongside Nazi Germany.

Just as the US promoted the Nazi regime in Germany to target the Soviet Union 70 years ago, the monied interests controlling the US are today using fascism as a tool to weaken Russia and prevent its potentially powerful alliance with Germany and other European countries. As Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov said on April 22nd: "Americans do a lot to prevent Germany from developing closer ties with Russia."

The US played an important role in the initiation of the Second World War and the major events that led to it. (See: Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War for background on the Anglo-American 'Secret Elite' and how they rule the world through war.) Before and during World War II, the U.S. eugenics movement, comprising extremely wealthy individuals, and American corporations like IBM, Ford, General Motors, ITT, Standard Oil of New Jersey, Chase Bank, National City Bank of New York, and others, supported the fascist propaganda and military institutions of the Nazi regime. Hitler called American eugenics leader Madison Grant‟s book The Passing of the Great Race his "bible".

Behind the Headlines - Interview with Stefan Verstappen - Paradise Stolen

Stefan Verstappen
This was Behind the Headlines' second interview with Canadian author, artist, and martial arts expert, Stefan Verstappen. Stefan has a professional background in communications and business management and has travelled extensively throughout East Asia, where he has studied oriental art, culture and Kung Fu.He's the author of 'The Art of Urban Survival' from which the viral YouTube video documentary 'Defense Against the Psychopath' was taken.

We previously spoke to Stefan about the video he produced on the topic of historical cycles of human civilization and the manner in which they appear to repeat. In his video, Stefan makes the case that we are currently in the final stage of our cycle of history, defined, like all others, by widespread chaos. Historically, only small groups of people survived the periods of destruction that defined the end of a cycle, and they did so by forming themselves into tight-knit communities with specific organizational structures.

More recently Stefan has produced 3 more short videos on the theme of "Paradise Stolen" where he explores the specific reasons for our current state of societal chaos, the alternatives to the way we live today, and what we can do to face the future and survive.

Following our interview with Stephen we discussed some current events including the stolen ballots in the UK general election, the Saudi bombing of Yemen with U.S. supplied cluster bombs and the possibility of infiltration and re-direction of the protests against police brutality.

Iraqis murder U.S. soldiers on the battlefield while Freddie Gray murders himself in a police van

Image
It's the first of its kind they say, and I believe them. For all of recorded history, when soldiers of one country invaded and occupied another, deaths among the invading forces were accepted as 'casualties of war', not homicides. A soldier on active duty in a war zone couldn't be 'murdered'. At least until now. This week, a British national, Anis Abid Sardar from north-west London, has gone on trial for the 'murder' of Sergeant First Class Randy Johnson in roadside attack outside Baghdad in 2007.

Behind the Headlines: Babylon, Ancient Rome and the American Empire

Image
Corruption, lies, manipulation and murder on a massive scale. These words describe the modern American Empire, what it has done and what it continues to do today. But has the American Empire, like many before it, extended its hubris too far and is its collapse imminent? Russia stands alone as the only major nation attempting to throw off the shackles of a unipolar world, assert its independence from the Empire and bring some balance back to our global society. Can Putin and co. succeed in bringing some long-overdue justice to an unjust world? And if not, is there still hope for some retribution from a 'higher power'?

This week on Behind the Headlines, we explored the nature and fate of the Roman Empire, and its parallels to our modern world, with historian Laura Knight-Jadczyk.

EMF pollution - What is EMF?

This article is part of a series of articles that will start with some background, proceed through a detailed description of man-made sources of EMF, discuss past study results, and finish with what you can do to measure your EMF exposure, and what steps you can take to minimize it.

What becomes a chronic disease condition, no doubt, has many potential causes including genetics, deficient diet, toxin exposure, and even repressed emotional expression. Research over the past two decades has mounted in support of adding Electromagnetic Field (EMF) exposure to the top-level list of chronic disease causes (including genome damage). It is likely that a chronic disease condition results from a unique and individual combination of these top-level causes, so EMF exposure should be considered in the context of other source causes as suggested in Figure 1.

US-backed Azov battalion crucifies and burns man alive in Ukraine

Image
The pro-Kiev, ultra-Nazi Azov battalion in Ukraine has allegedly sent a snuff film depicting the brutal execution of a Ukrainian 'separatist' to militia fighters and hackers from the hacktivist collective known as Cyber Berkut. The video, shown below, is graphic, so be warned. It shows a group of armed men holding down a gagged man on a cross, tying him to it with duct tape. Nails are then hammered through the palms of his hands, the man's screams audible through the gag. While the actual nailing is not shown, the camera then moves in to show the nails in his hands. Then the cross is lifted, set in the ground, and the base is lit. The video cuts out as the fast-rising flames meet the crucified man's feet.

According to Cyber Berkut, the video had an accompanying message, stating the the footage was filmed near the village of Shirokino and warning that all separatists - 'traitors' to Ukraine - would face the same fate.

Cyber Berkut has been releasing leaked documents, audio, and video for the past year or so. They're the ones who released the phone call between EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs Catherine Ashton and Foreign Minister of Estonia Urmas Paet, in which they discuss the Maidan snipers. (You can see a list of some of their leaks on Wikipedia.) The video was then publicized by LifeNews in Russia, who confirmed its authenticity. LifeNews tends to be rather sensationalistic, but that does not necessarily imply the video is a fake.
