SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Irish Rebellion, Israeli Genocide, Western Russia Obsession

In this final NewsReal of 2023, Joe and Niall bring you on a whirlwind global bird's-eye view of recent events, with updates on the popular resistance against directed mass migration in Ireland, Russia's path to victory over NATO proxy forces in Ukraine, the ever-darker horrors of Israeli war crimes in Gaza, and the farcical pantomime that was 'COP28'. And there's so much more to look forward to in 2024: more wars, more disputed elections, and probable global economic FUBAR.

It's Clown World, folks. And remember, it's their world: we're all just here to observe it, give each thing its due, and try to stay out of the way. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Livid at Russian Victory in Ukraine, US Warmongers Facilitate Israeli Genocide of Palestinians

Russia's success in absorbing everything NATO and the Kiev regime has thrown at its military defenses in the newly-acquired regions is now all but confirmed in Western capitals. Though they lament that "Putin's victory is terrifying," they nonetheless acknowledge that Russia has won. The US government may yet extend the war with further weapons dumps in Ukraine, but Washington knows this won't substantially change anything.

Meanwhile, American weapons are pouring into Israel, where they're duly dumped onto defenceless Palestinians in Gaza. This week on NewsReal, Joe & Niall highlight the extreme contrast between the two wars: one is a war between two armies on civilian-evacuated, fixed terrain, and the other on densely civilian-populated terrain - a 'war' so evil that its genocidal intent is laid bare for all to see.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Dublin Riot, Mass Migration, and Israel's Final Solution

This past week saw election victories for 'right-wing populists' in two Western countries, a premeditated mass stabbing by a Muslim migrant in Ireland which prompted a 'far-right' riot, and ongoing genocide in Gaza bringing the death toll to 20,000 Palestinians. On this NewsReal, Joe and Niall provide context for the worst rioting seen in Ireland's capital in a generation, note the obnoxiously pro-Israel stances of Argentina's new leader Javier Milei, and the Netherlands' (likely) new leader, Geert Wilders, and ponder what next for the 'final solution' in Palestine...

SOTT Focus: MindMatters: Psychedelics, Sobriety, and Altered States: Processing Reality with John Buchanan

john buchanan
What do altered states tell us about the nature of consciousness? And what can philosophy tell us about altered states? John Buchanan has spent his life trying to find the answers. His book, Processing Reality: Finding Meaning in Death, Psychedelics, and Sobriety, details the story of his history of experimentation and addiction, his path to sobriety, and the insights he has gained into the nature of human experience and consciousness.

A synthesis of Whitehead's process philosophy and Grof's transpersonal psychology, Buchanan's ideas provide a framework for understanding not only the nature of the psychedelic experience and other altered states, but also the nature of consciousness itself and the structure of the cosmos.

See our previous interview with John here.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Why is Israel's War Against Palestinians 'Existential' for the West?

Israel's mission in Gaza is now clear: to push all Palestinians out of the Strip and on to either Egypt or elsewhere. This has produced unprecedented tension in the region, tension that will surely express itself elsewhere in due course. In the meantime, Western governments' total support for Israel remains unchanged. This week on NewsReal, Joe and Niall explore the various weird mythologies used to justify a patently inhuman strategy of giving Israel whatever it wants, a strategy that is going to be the undoing of so-called Western civilization.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Ukraine War Ends, Mid-East War Begins? Why America is Shifting Gears

Anglo-American legacy media this week "quietly" announced an "end" to the Ukraine War, informing - correctly, for the first time since February 2022 - Western audiences that Kiev doesn't stand a chance militarily against Russia, that Zelensky is "deluded" and "messianic" about recovering the four provinces lost to Russia, and that American and European leaders have begun pushing him to enter negotiations with Moscow.

So, peace on Earth?!

Given current events in the Middle East, not least the Israeli obliteration of Gaza and the major deployment of US warships and forces in Israel and on the surrounding seas, it's more likely that the US Empire is 'pivoting' from Ukraine only because it considers the job there 'done' and now has bigger goals in sight.

This week on NewsReal, Joe & Niall outline the geopolitical contours of the next war for empire and its likely consequences for all. Also, what the heck is Dr. Jordan Peterson even talking about, telling Palestinians to 'shoulder responsibility' for the genocide being waged against them??

SOTT Focus: MindMatters: Five Myths about Evil: Setting the Record Straight with David Abramowitz

david abramowitz
Are all psychopaths serial killers? Is authoritarianism only found on the political right? Are we all equally capable of evil? Does power really corrupt absolutely? And is evil really "banal"?

Join us today as we discuss the biggest myths about evil with David Abramowitz, the nature of psychopaths and ponerology, and how McGilchrist's brain-hemisphere research fits into the picture.

David Abramowitz has a background in finance and accounting, but an experience with a psychopath set him on a path to research the topic for the next decade. He has read nearly everything there is to read on the subject, and describes a type which he has termed the "passive-parasitic" psychopath. These are the so-called successful psychopaths, the ones you'll find on Wall Street and in Washington. And they're the reason for much of today's pathological political climate.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Israel and US Implementing 'Final Solutions' to End Palestine and Multipolar World

Last week the American 'president', Joe Biden, gave a TV address in which he declared that he was sending half of America's sea power to 'protect Israel', part of Washington's plan to usher in a "new, new world order." While it's scarily obvious what Israel's attempting to do - ethnically cleanse Gaza and the West Bank of Palestinians - it's not so obvious what the USA is trying to do.

This week on NewsReal, Joe & Niall sketch how 'Armageddon' might play out in the coming months, with the US-led West apparently seeking to start a 'controlled burn' in the Middle East with a 'limited war' that would disrupt global energy supplies just enough to hinder its rivals and thus maintain American global hegemony. You know what they say about wishful thinking...

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Israel's Revenge - Will Gaza Genocide Provoke Wider War?

Last week's multi-site terror attack in southern Israel, and Israel's aerial bombardment of Gaza in response, have divided public opinion like never before. In this NewsReal Joe and Niall again explain why it's extremely unlikely that Israeli security services were caught by surprise, and speculate as to the motives of a 'fifth column' for provoking this almighty maelstrom of hatred and vengeance.

SOTT Focus: NewsReal: Hamas 'Invasion' of Israel: Surprise or LIHOP?

© Sott.net
Hamas' surprise 'breakout' of the Gaza Strip 'prison' into multiple settlements across southern Israel has pushed the Ukraine War off the news and divided public opinion like never before. Many are joining the Israeli regime in calling for Gaza to be 'levelled', and Israel is formally 'at war' with the Palestinian statelet.

But could Hamas really have taken the mighty Israeli Defense Forces by complete surprise? Israel's military and hi-tech surveillance capabilities are world-renowned, and Hamas isn't known to commit ISIS-style atrocities. With Israel mobilizing its entire military, apparently to bring a 'final solution' to its 'subhuman Palestinian problem', a major power-play is afoot, one that may eclipse the Ukraine War and inflame the entire Middle East anew.
