Quick disclaimer: I have no idea if the accusations against actor and podcaster Russell Brand are real or fake. What I know for sure is that the timing of the corporate media documentary (he is NOT charged with a crime) is extremely suspicious. I also know that he’s been making some powerful enemies with his ongoing spread of liberal views (not to be confused with leftist views) that run counter to the approved narratives.
I am not going to dispute the validity of the sexual assault allegations against him because the “evidence” presented could be made up or it could be completely real. I’m not qualified to judge based on the limited information available. But considering the Jeffrey Epstein list has been completely buried with nary a corporate media journalist asking any questions, it’s conspicuous that Brand suddenly has these accusations against him at the height of his influence.
He’s opposed to Big Government, Big Pharma, the Ukrainian grift, and tyranny in general. Politically he’s more of a Neo-Marxist/Libertarian hybrid, if that makes any sense at all. So while I agree with many of his stances on personal freedom and transparency of government, I’m no fan of some of his other stances. This is a long preface, but it’s necessary because it’s prudent to understand WHY the powers-that-be would go after him before deciding whether this is a smear job or if he’s really facing truths being told by victims. Again, I don’t know enough to judge.
So let’s start with what is being claimed by the British news outlets who put the documentary together, as reported by Amanda Prestigiacomo at Daily Wire:
The Sunday Times report said four women, whose names have not been disclosed, have accused Brand of sexual misconduct from 2006 to 2013, which was the height of Brand’s mainstream fame. One woman claims Brand raped her, while another alleged victim, who is now 31, says Brand sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old (the age of consent in the UK).
“Amidst this litany of astonishing, rather baroque attacks, are some very serious allegations that I absolutely refute,” Brand said on video platform Rumble.
“These allegations pertain to the time when I was working in the mainstream, when I was in the newspapers all the time, when I was in the movies. And as I’ve written about extensively in my books, I was very, very promiscuous,” he continued. “Now, during that time of promiscuity, the relationships I had were absolutely always consensual.”
Notably, the allegations against Brand came from a joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times, and Channel 4 Dispatches.
“There are witnesses whose evidence directly contradicts the narratives that these two mainstream media outlets are trying to construct, apparently, in what seems to me to be a coordinated attack,” Brand countered. “I feel like I’m being attacked, and obviously they are working very closely together.”
Brand, at the time of the video, said he had heard from one media outlet and one TV company.
The Sunday Times and The Times said it gave Brand eight days to respond to the allegations, and noted that Brand’s legal team responded by taking issue with the media outlets intentionally choosing to anonymize the names of his accusers, likely making it more difficult for Brand to refute directly.
Brand’s team also told the media that this was a “concerted campaign” and that there is a “deeply concerning agenda to all this, namely the fact that he is an alternative media broadcaster competing with mainstream media.”
According to the report, one woman is claiming Brand raped her in his Los Angeles home. She says she was treated at a rape crisis center on the same day of the alleged rape, and The Sunday Times suggested medical records confirm this. The report also said via text message, Brand replied “very sorry,” when the woman texted, “When a girl say[s] NO it means no.”
Another woman, who is now 31 years old, says she was still in school when she was in a relationship with Brand for about three months. The accuser says Brand referred to her as “the child” and once “forced his penis down her throat,” the report said.
Another woman claims Brand sexually assaulted her and then threatened her with legal action if she were to talk about the allegation. And a fourth woman says Brand sexually assaulted her and was physically and emotionally abusive.
Brand posted his denial video to X (formerly Twitter) as well, where it racked up nearly 32 million views in a matter of hours.
Elon Musk pointed out that Brand is a threat to corporate media, “Of course. They don’t like competition.’

Tucker Carlson took a different angle, noting that Brand was a threat to known agendas of the New World Order. He posted, “Criticize the drug companies, question the war in Ukraine, and you can be pretty sure this is going to happen.

Both Musk and Carlson would know because they’ve been targeted by the powers-that-be as well. The methods of taking down enemies of the globalists differ for each individual. It makes sense that they would target Brand with sexual assault accusations because it’s easier to suspend disbelief of such things when Hollywood celebrities are involved. Nobody would believe Tucker Carlson sexually assault four women just as nobody would believe Russell Brand was manipulating shareholders of his companies.
In other words, the powers-that-be (New World Order, Deep State, Globalist Elite Cabal, whatever you want to call them) personalize their smear campaigns to maximize believability.
Therein lies the key to takedowns of powerful people orchestrated by the powers-that-be. They know how to craft a narrative that keeps enough people in the dark until the damage is done. A great example of his was the Russian collusion hoax they used against Donald Trump. It has now been revealed that not only was it all made up, but more importantly they KNEW it was made up when they used it against him. But how many people have gone to jail over the destructive series of lies that plagued our nation for nearly four years? Exactly.
That’s their playbook. This is why it’s important to be extremely skeptical of the timing of this documentary hit piece against Brand. Whether any of it is true or not, the powers-that-be wield facts and fiction like weapons of individual destruction.
In the conservative sphere, there seems to be two dominant types of responses to the accusations. Many if not most are keeping quiet. They don’t want to be seen supporting an accused rapist but they also don’t want to speak out in case it’s all a setup.
The other group are those who aren’t buying the narrative or the charges. Here are some examples of those people:
