The Truth Perspective: Terror in Brussels: Why Belgium really is a hotbed of extremist terrorists

Nato / Gladio

Nato-Terror: Gladio
After months of "anti-terror" raids, tension, and media hype, terror has come to Brussels, Belgium. Following the same script used for over a decade, this latest attack features all the tropes: drills, prior knowledge, intelligence warnings, and suspects previously known to police and intelligence. But is Brussels really the den of extremists the media has been telling us it is? Actually, yes, but the real terrorists aren't Muslims. On this episode of the Truth Perspective we discussed the details of this latest attack, the bigger context of Western-backed and Western-created terrorism, and what our response should be to tragic events like this.

Broadcasting from deep in the heart of the American Empire, join your hosts Harrison Koehli and Elan Martin, and fellow SOTT editors, as they discuss everything from current events and the latest machinations and manipulations of the global elite to history, science, and religion, and how it all fits together. The Truth Perspective is brought to you by the SOTT Radio Network on SOTT.net, your one-stop source for independent, unbiased, alternative news and commentary on world events.

The Health & Wellness Show: Placebos: When Nothing Really Matters

© Sott.net
Physicians and scientists have known about the placebo effect for well over 50 years. Studies have shown that placebos -- dummy or sugar pills-- are just as effective as medication with active ingredients. Yet the mainstream study of placebos as a first line treatment gets little attention. Today on the Health and Wellness Show we talked about the placebo effect and take it a step further. Do humans have an inner pharmacy that can be tapped into at will? What if you can become your own placebo and experience healing through the power of your mind alone? Can you change your genetic expression through thoughts? And if this is possible, how does it work? Joining us, as always, was Zoya with a pet health segment on placebos and pets.

Behind the Headlines: From the invasion of Iraq to the refugee crisis: 'Reshaping' the planet through phony terror

Today marks the 13th anniversary of the post-9/11 invasion of Iraq. March 20th, 2003 was the date on which the Western Empire began its insane quest to 'reshape the Middle East' through violent intervention. This week on Behind the Headlines, we'll be looking back at the bloody mayhem the Iraq War unleashed, and discussing its ongoing ramifications as it continues spreading today, not least in Turkey, where yet another 'suicide' bombing took place this week.

Unlike the American 'Mission Accomplished' three months after invading Iraq in 2003, the Russian equivalent in Syria this week appears to have some basis in reality. We'll be exploring what it means for the balance of power in the Middle East, and also discussing whether there is any connection to yet another Russian passenger airplane falling out of the sky near the conflict zone in southeastern Ukraine yesterday.

This show aired live from 1pm-2.30pm EST / 5-6.30pm UTC / 6-7.30pm CET

The Truth Perspective: Why Daesh is doomed - and other tales of failed terror states

Baghdadi ISIS

Big Bad Baghdadi, Mossad asset?
The Islamic State pretends to be viable state. It's right there in their name. But are they? And if they are, can they sustain themselves? There are certain reasons why states survive or fail, but the least discussed reasons are perhaps the most important. Luckily, these are discussed in Andrew Lobaczewski's Political Ponerology. On this episode of the Truth Perspective, we continued where our previous discussion of radicalization left off, showing why Daesh is doomed to fail, and how its ultimate purpose must be looked for elsewhere. The only reason it has been able to succeed to the degree it has is because of external, foreign support: from their Gulf monarchy sponsors and from the U.S. It actively eschews appealing for popular Muslim support, relying on a tiny minority of sadistic psychopaths and mercenaries.

Russia is playing a big part in the ultimate demise of Daesh. We discussed what Russia and their allies have accomplished, including the latest news: the partial withdrawal of Russian forces from Syria.

The Health & Wellness Show: The benefits of cold adaptation

cold therapy
Is cold actually good for you? We've all heard stories about long-lived people from Northern Europe and the hardiness of those who live in cold environments, but can these benefits be available to everyone? Can you avoid sickness and infirmity by exposing yourself to the cold? What are the actual mechanisms of how cold adaptation affects the human body? These are the questions we explored on this week's Health and Wellness show: The Benefits of Cold Adaptation. We also discussed Wim Hof's remarkable story, cold adaptation techniques, and heard some live testimonials.

Included as always was Zoya's Pet Health Segment, discussing dog bites: why they happen, how to know the warning signs, and what to do about them. Join us weekly on Fridays on the SOTT Radio Network!

Behind the Headlines: 'Muslim Hordes' - The Islamic origins of Western Civilization

caliphs Islam spread

The Age of the Caliphs: Brown - Muhammad, 622–632. Orange - Rashidun Caliphate, 632–661. Yellow - Umayyad Caliphate, 661–750
With post-9/11 anti-Muslim hysteria in the West providing fertile ground for the perception of today's refugee crisis in Europe as a "Muslim horde invading Western civilization to rape our women, steal our jobs and generally tarnish Our White European Christian Values", intense historical revisionism is underway to paint Muslims as having always been a 'backwards, sub-human horde'.

In a throwback to the Medieval crusades, today's Western wars of conquest in the Muslim world have essentially been justified on the basis of a 'civilizing mission' to bring freedom and democracy to backwards peoples. Citing it as historical precedent, the revisionists propose that the Medieval era crusades launched against Muslim cities in the Eastern Mediterranean were justified because of the 'invasion and occupation of Medieval Spain' during Europe's Dark Age.

In what is arguably one of history's richest ironies, this complete inversion of what really happened when the Muslims came to Europe around 700 AD has obscured the truth about just who was behaving like a marauding horde and who was doing the civilizing. So this week on Behind the Headlines we're going to take a moment to explore the origins of Western civilization.

We're live from 1pm-3pm EST / 5-7pm UTC / 6-8pm CET

The Truth Perspective: What is radicalization?

This week, the Truth Perspective hosts were joined by Joe Quinn and Niall Bradley from Behind the Headlines.

If you read the papers or watch the news, you probably 'know' that radicalization is the biggest threat to human civilization and values the world has ever seen. But is it really? The phenomenon of radicalization is much discussed, but ill-defined and not thoroughly understood. The word itself has become a convenient catch-all for individuals and groups with a variety of goals and motivations. Whether religious, social, political, or economic, radicals can be either a force for positive change, or personal and social degradation. We need new words if we want to understand what's really going on.

Moving in that direction, we discussed radicalization in general, the history, goals, and influences on "radical Islam", and how the science of ponerology provides the only comprehensive understanding of what's really going on, and the real threats facing humanity. Relevant topics included: the Iranian revolution, the colonial history of the Middle East, the creation of Israel, the occupations of Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq, the nature of resistance movements, the varieties of 'conversion' experiences, and more.

The Health & Wellness Show: Idiocracy, apathy & ignorance in an unhealthy world

Chemicals in food
Today on the Health & Wellness Show we looked at some of the latest headlines and connected the dots to get an overall picture of what's happening to our collective state of health here on the big blue marble. Has America truly become an Idiocracy where citizens are so dumbed down that they trust the people who know the least and ridicule any sort of rational, well-read, informed knowledge? Are we creating a world of dummies through toxic junk-food lifestyles exported abroad, setting an example by being self-righteous, ignorant and deliberately gullible? Join us as we will delve into the details of the corporate shenanigans of Monsanto, Big Pharma, FDA conflicts of interest, sick care in America, and the poisoning of our bodies with everyday products.

The Health and Wellness Show airs every Friday at 10 am EST and 4 pm CET, where we expose the lies and emphasize the truth about health in our modern world. With us today, as always, was our resident animal health expert Zoya, with her weekly Pet Health Segment.

Behind the Headlines: Postimperialism: A Template for a New Society and Why It's Necessary

Us troops

US troups are present in 156 countries
The evidence is all around that our current global society has reached its nadir. Today, the rampant corruption and psychopathy that define state and global 'leadership' has filtered down to sully all levels of society. From the new phony religion of myopic and obtuse 'science' and the old phony religion of made-up gods and saviors promising eternal bliss in 'heaven' or eternal damnation in 'hell', to sweat shops for the poor and dead-end mind-numbing jobs for the 'rich'.

Our chronically polluted environment is ignored in favor of endless wars on brown-skinned people that provides the rationale for police state measures in the affluent 'West'. Meanwhile, large numbers of the (otherwise) normal human population have responded to such chaos and disconnection with apathy and dissociation into increasingly toxic and pathological 'past times'. Yes indeed, things certainly could be better on our planet. But what can we do to help set things straight?

This week on Behind the Headlines, Joe Quinn and Pierre Lescaudron will be discussing some ideas about how a postimperial global society might be structured and why it is a very good idea that we all begin to seriously consider a future where building society from the 'ground up' is necessary.

The Health & Wellness Show: The Iodine Crisis - Interview with Lynne Farrow

iodine crisis
This week, we are pleased to interview Lynne Farrow author of The Iodine Crisis. Lynne is a whistle blower, journalist, researcher, former college professor and speaker. Her own experience with breast cancer led to the discovery that someone had stolen a medicine with proven benefits reaching back 15,000 years. A medicine that not only helped her, but has helped millions.

She currently serves as the Director of Breast Cancer Choices, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to the scrutinizing and reporting of the evidence for breast cancer procedures and treatments.

Lynne is also the editor of IodineResearch.com, where she has compiled materials for both beginning and advanced iodine investigators.

Why is there so much iodine deficiency? What are the applications of iodine therapy? Should I supplement with iodine? Which is the best way to take iodine? What troubleshooting should I expect? We'll cover all of these questions and much more.

Join us Fridays at 10 am EST and 4 pm CET for the Health and Wellness Show, where we expose the lies and emphasize the truth about health in our modern world. With us, as always, will be resident animal health expert Zoya, with her weekly Pet Health Segment.
