Behind the Headlines: Afghanistan: Where Empires Go To Die

American troops Afghanistan
Four more years in Afghanistan. Maybe eight more? Or how about another sixteen? If the deep state has its way, it may never end, even if it ends up costing trillions. This last week, Trump caved to the war-mongers, against his better instincts, opting for more endless war. The Soviets at the very least were smart enough to leave in the 80s, but the Americans seem to enjoy losing bigly.

Meanwhile, the Russians are showing what a real military strategy looks like. The Syrian war is pretty much over. De-escalation zones are up and running. ISIS is on the run and its territory dwindling by the day. And the rebels have all joined together for one last hurrallahu akbar, finally effecting that "un-mingling" of moderates and terrorists. This is what happens when you have clearly defined goals, and an actual military strategy. Maybe America could learn a thing or two from the Russians.

Join us from 12-2pm EST (4-6pm UTC / 6-8pm CET) this Sunday 27 August 2017, as we discuss these stories and more on SOTT's Behind the Headlines.

The Health & Wellness Show: Fungus Among Us

mushrooms
Fungi are one of the key elements of life on Earth while being one of the least understood, at least in terms of the sheer volume of varieties and how they interact with the rest of the systems on the planet. Of an estimated 15 million species on Earth, some 6 million of them may be fungi. We are now just starting to learn about fungal networks and mycelial 'internets,' and mycologists believe that this new understanding could be a key element in our journey to better health and a more sustainable world.

When it comes to the health benefits of fungi scientists discovered that mushrooms and mycelium are more closely related to animals than plants - we share a common, unique evolutionary history. Mycologists have been documenting the anticancer and neurogenic properties of fungi in addition to metabolites that have long been used in western medicine to fight infections. There are also bad fungi, mold and fungal outbreaks like candida can wreak havoc on the body. Join us as we discuss the fungus among us.

Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be yeast infections in dogs.

Behind the Headlines: Charlottesville Mass Hysteria Bubble, Terror Strikes Barcelona

Charlottesville protests

Over-dramatize much?
Who knew the US was full of neo-Nazis and fascists? Last weekend's mayhem in Charlottesville, Virginia has people up in arms about the KKK, white supremacists and neo-Nazis, an apparently 'yuge' mass movement that has launched a full ground war to take over the US and install Trump as dictator.

In an effort to prevent this horrible scenario from happening, a counter-movement (hashtag: 'The Resistance') is actively removing potentially racist statues from every city and town across the land and has resolved to "destroy the Confederacy."

Confused? You should be, because it's a complete psy-op being conducted by the usual suspects, and starring a hystericized population as willing participants.

Meanwhile, a spate of terror attacks and maybe-terror-related murders hit Europe this week, including yet another mass hit-and-run, this time in Barcelona during peak tourist season.

Join us from 12-2pm EST (4-6pm UTC / 6-8pm CET) this Sunday 20 August 2017, as we go behind the week's sea of insane headlines in search of an island of sanity.

The Health & Wellness Show: Men and Women are Different: What's the Big Deal?

google memo author James Damore

James Damore
Recently, the Google-verse exploded in a firestorm of controversy when one of it's employees, James Demore, published a memo that cited biological differences in the makeup of men and women that influenced job choice and placement. To say that he was lambasted in the press would be an understatement. Demore was labeled as a sexist and misogynist and hastily fired from Google for 'perpetuating gender stereotypes'.

But was he wrong? Not at all, according to social scientists and neuroscientists. There are differences in the brains of men and women that influence their behaviors and career choices. On this episode of the Health and Wellness Show we explored these differences, discuss how this issue sent certain members of society into a frenzy, and try to answer the question as to why stating the obvious is now considered blasphemy.

And stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be marker training for dogs.

The Truth Perspective: Weapons of Mass Migration: Interview with Michael Springmann on Europe's Migrant Crisis

goodby europe hello chaos
Europe's migrant crisis has been the biggest in modern history, prompting stark divisions along political lines. What prompted the crisis? Where is it going? Today on the Truth Perspective we welcome back ex-diplomat J. Michael Springmann to talk about his new book, Goodbye, Europe? Hello, Chaos?: Merkel's Migrant Bomb. Springmann argues that there's more to the crisis than meets the eye. Mass migrations are not random. Historically, they have been engineered to target both the source nations of the refugees, and their final destinations.

Join us at 12-2pm EST (4-6pm UTC, 6-8pm CET) as we discuss the origins and purposes of the migrant crisis, the polarization of Europeans, who bears the ultimate responsibility, and where we go from here.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years around the world with more than 3 million Americans receiving it each year. While much of acupuncture's effectiveness remains a mystery to mainstream science, stimulating the bioenergetic pathways of the body has been proven to reduce inflammation, improve the flow of energy, relieve pain, reduce high blood pressure and alleviate the symptoms of chronic and serious disease.

Join us for this episode of the Health and Wellness Show where we were joined by Elizabeth Ross, a Registered Acupuncturist and a Nationally Certified Diplomate of Acupuncture. She received her Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSOM) from the World Medicine Institute in Honolulu, Hawaii where she studied Taoist and Traditional Chinese styles of acupuncture, as well as Qi Gong and Chinese Herbal medicine.

The Health & Wellness Show: Lightening up: The Benefits of Photobiomodulation

photobiomodulation
The use of light therapy has a long history and was considered cutting edge treatment for a variety of infectious diseases, skin disorders and wounds in the late 1800's and early to mid-1900's but was shunted aside with the invention of antibiotics and the rise of Big Pharma. Now, light therapy is making a comeback and there are hundreds of research articles on the therapeutic benefits of red, near-infrared, green and, sometimes even blue, light. Photobiomodulation has shown promising results in the treatment of a wide array of disorders from chronic pain to Alzheimer's disease to acne and more.

Join us on this episode of The Health and Wellness Show where we'll discuss the science behind why light is so effective, what happens to your body when exposed to certain wavelengths and how to incorporate light therapy into your life in the comfort of your own home.

Behind the Headlines: The Fall of Western Society and American Isolationism

© New Eastern Outlook
Western society is apparently in trouble. 'Left'- and 'Right'-wing ideologies are resorting to increasingly extreme positions and isolating large groups of people from each other.

Meanwhile, a similar parting of the ways seems to be happening at the level of 'international order'. In just one week, the US has increased sanctions on Iran, tabled a new package of sanctions against Russia and North Korea, and slapped sanctions on Venezuela. From positioning itself as the global arbiter of 'just wars' in the aftermath of 9/11, the US is today self-declared as the global arbiter of economic trade.

With sanctions the US government believes it can isolate Russia and other regimes it doesn't like, and thus 'hold the center'. But is it in fact only isolating itself and further polarizing opinion and society inside the USA?

Join us on Behind the Headlines today, from 12-2pm EST (4-6pm UTC, 6-8pm CET), for our discussion of the week's news in context.

The Health & Wellness Show: Connecting The Dots - Big Food, Big Pharma and Big Disease

low fat saturated fat
On this episode of the Health and Wellness show we will Connect the Dots in health news over the last couple of months. Big food is back in the news with their ridiculous recommendations about 'healthy dietary fats'. The Presidential advisory panel sponsored by the American Heart Association has once again displayed their blatant conflicts of interest, cherry picked data and misguided science when it come to recommendations for a 'healthy diet'. Big food profits drive the funding, publication and discussion of organizations like the AHA while researchers, authors, cardiologists and consumers are left wondering what is going on?

We cannot address Big Food without looking at the connections between Big Pharma and Big Disease. If 'food is information' as science has been suggesting how does lifestyle, diet and environmental factors contribute to our overall health? Join us for yet another lively discussion about food, Big Pharma drugs and the growing epidemic of disease.

As always added in the mix is Zoya's pet health segment!
