The Truth Perspective: Poverty, planes and the demise of civilization

Sott Talk Radio logo
In this week's show, we gave an update on the stock markets, the precarious economy and discussed how large numbers of Americans are living at or near poverty levels, with large numbers requiring federal assistance just to make ends meet. In the next part of the show we discuss the unusual number of airline mishaps that have occurred globally with an unsettling cluster happening in late December.

Next, a discussion of the increasing numbers of meteorites and comets that have been reported; how they have historically impacted the global climate and have been responsible for the demise of civilizations and what that means for us today. We then recap another hot topic that has caused much debate in the media: vaccines and their efficacy, or rather the lack thereof and the media hype over seasonal flu. Finally, a discussion of UFO sightings and the CIA's involvement and disinformation campaign surrounding the phenomenon.

From the crisis in Ukraine to the ISIS in Iraq, from increasingly extreme weather to surviving in a world ruled by psychopaths, your hosts, their colleagues (and occasional guests) explore the deeper truths driving world events by exposing the manipulations behind what passes for 'news'. In this final show of the year, your hosts and their colleagues will be taking a look back at events in 2014 and considering what 2015 holds in store.

The Truth Perspective: Sydney Siege terror - what about Chechnya and Ukraine?

peshawar school shooting
This weeks show covers a multitude of events. In the past week or so, there have been an unusual number of mass murders that have occurred around the world, including the killing of students by the Taliban at a school in Peshawar, an Iraq vet who murdered an entire family near Philadelphia, the Sydney siege and the attack in Canada. Included in the discussion are the curious and rather common connections between the perpetrators of many of the shootings to intelligence agencies who have had these people on their watch lists but who somehow manage to slip through the net to commit these crimes.

Next up, we discussed the ongoing intrigue in Chechnya and Ukraine, the US re-establishment of diplomatic ties with Cuba to end the embargo and Russia's response to the situation. Russia has been quite prominent in the news on other fronts: their recent backing out of the South Stream pipeline agreement after EU / Bulgaria's haggling for four years, Putin's offer of amnesty to Russian oligarchs enabling them to legally return assets to Russia and Putin's skillful maneuvering to help Russia weather the economic storm caused by drops in oil prices and the Ruble, while cooperating with other BRICS and SCO countries to transition out of dollar denominated reserves into other currencies.

Behind the Headlines: Weekly Broadcast - 14 December 2014

Sott Talk Radio logo
This week the US Congress finally published its long-awaited 'Torture Report', the culmination of years of investigation into the Bush gang's 'methods' after 9/11.

The US media reported shock and outrage at the committee's findings, but what did we actually learn from their report? And is the truth about what went on - and is still going on - far worse than we're being told?

The Behind the Headlines team investigate...

The Truth Perspective: The CIA torture report and its implications - true history of early Christianity

Image

This week, we discussed the recent CIA Torture Report, Bart Ehrman's Jesus, Interrupted, what we do and don't know about early Christianity, and more.The CIA Torture Report has been a source of much contention in the media and high-up political circles. Listen as we survey the various points of view bandied about: from those who would seek to excuse the criminal and psychopathic methods of the CIA, to others who recognize it as one more attempt to make the American public complicit in its government's machinations.

In the second part of the show, we examine early Christianity: our common historic understanding of who Jesus was and what he did next to the actual facts that much of the Church knows of - and why those facts aren't generally known and understood by those who consider themselves Christian.

Behind the Headlines: Russian gas deal with Turkey - 'F*ck the EU!'

Image
This week on Behind the Headlines, we're discussing 'pipeline-istan', the economic battle between the West and Russia over who supplies Europe with its energy needs. Putin recently upset the EU by cancelling the planned South Stream Russian natural gas pipeline via Bulgaria... and replacing it with an alternative route to Turkey, which could possibly go from there into Greece and elsewhere in the Mediterranean. While this development came as a surprise to some, it's actually part of a decades-old issue that reappears in different guises: the US considers Europe to be its own, therefore Russian 'invasions', even in the form of peaceful trade deals, must be kept minimal.

In the first episode of The Truth Perspective, Harrison Koehli and fellow Sott.net editors discussed the breakdown of the South Stream deal between Russia and Europe. This came as a stun to EU leaders, who were expecting to make Russia submit. But Putin turned it around with a strategic move to Turkey.

Then, Chechnya experienced a terror attack, a day before Putin's annual address. Were the events connected in some way? The Truth Perspective looks into it.

Behind the Headlines: Historical Cycles, interview with Stefan Verstappen

Stefan Verstappen
This week we spoke once more 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.

Stefan is the author of 'The art of urban survival' from which the viral YouTube video documentary 'Defense Against the Psychopath' was taken.

Stedan has recently produced another video 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.
