“You’ll see some very interesting changes in your conception of reality. But you have to remain grounded at the same time. Because you are living in this world, in this form of reality.  That’s the trick, to remain grounded.” Jack True, in interview with Jon Rappoport

This week on The Solari Report, more on “breaking away” as I present my 2nd Quarter Wrap Up.

The first half of 2014 has been profoundly power shifting. I will review the most important events in the financial markets and geopolitical stories that highlight the primary trends impacting your time and finances. My goal is to help you see the strategic areas of investment opportunity and risk as they unfold within the events around us.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the Belgian police thriller Salamander. Salamander has been been purchased by the BBC and is scheduled for an English-speaking remake. A fascinating case study in the nature of political governance and control in the 21st century, Salamander underscores the power and importance of “control files.” For those of you trying to understand the latest round of pedophilia scandals in England and how compromising pictures in the wrong hands can drive people to extremes, this one is for you.

Please make sure to post or e-mail your questions and comments. “Talk” to you Thursday!

“But sooner or later baby, here’s a ditty
Say you’re gonna have to get right down to the real nitty gritty”
– “The Nitty Gritty,” by Lincoln Chase

I am drowning in strange intellectual justifications for income inequality. There seems to be no end in inventing explanations for the existing centralization of wealth.

One recent article in the WSJ said that it was all because of semiconductors. You almost don’t know what to say to such hubris. If that were true – and it is not – I would point out that the early developments of semiconductors might have been paid for by the taxpayers through the black budget and transferred out to Silicon Valley in a manner that provided no return to the taxpayers.

The growth of academic and intellectual justifications has become so robust, I purchased Thomas Pikety’s book Capital in the Twenty-First Century to try to understand what all the fuss is about. To my delight, his introduction is beautifully written and promises lots of statistics. So we shall see.

Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower, talks exclusively to Alan Rusbridger, editor-in-chief of the Guardian, and reporter Ewen MacAskill in Moscow. The 31-year-old former intelligence analyst discusses whether he is a Russian spy, his likely fate if he returns to the US and the relevance of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four in the age of Google

I would like to thank Nazha Aschenbrenner for giving me the opportunity to provide my perspective on Investment in Agriculture for Sustainability and Food Security (sovereignty) since I was not available to moderate the session at the 2014 AIM Conference.

First some definitions.

We define food as primary ingredients or that, which is made from primary ingredients, using processes that do not alter the fundamental integrity, wholesomeness and healthfulness of the primary ingredients used. A primary ingredient is water and also a natural (non-synthetic) nutrient with a fully-disclosed, one-word ingredient statement, which is neither genetically modified nor produced using GM technologies.

Never mind the ‘war on terror’ rhetoric, writes Nafeez Ahmed. The purpose of Israel’s escalating assault on Gaza is to control the Territory’s 1.4 trillion cubic feet of gas – and so keep Palestine poor and weak, gain massive export revenues, and avert its own domestic energy crisis.

Israel’s defence minister is on record confirming that military plans to uproot Hamas’ are about securing control of Gaza’s gas reserves.

***CAF Note: This is a classic. Worth checking out!***

I stood on the Great Wall of China near the borders of Mongolia. Below me in the valley, standing up square and high, was a wall that had once surrounded a city. Of the city only a few mud houses remained, scarcely enough to lead one’s mind back to the time when people and household industry teemed within the protecting wall.

This week on The Solari Report, Jon Rappoport will give his amazing presentation that literally brought down the house in San Mateo on June 29th. The question most on our minds when discussing trillions missing and the breakaway civilization is “What do I do?” Jon lays the foundation for a profoundly successful answer to that question.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in world and financial news.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Tim’s Vermeer, a documentary about inventor Tim Jenison efforts to understand the painting techniques used by Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer. Rotten Tomatoes review describes as follows: “Entertaining and profound in equal measure, Tim’s Vermeer uses its seemingly esoteric subject to pose fascinating questions about art and obsession.”

Jon has created a new special collection which includes information on how to obtain and manage power outside the confines of the matrix. He is calling it Power Outside the Matrix. It comes with my highest recommendation!

Israeli forces backed by artillery barrages and airstrikes launched a major ground offensive into Gaza late Thursday, marking a dramatic escalation of the 10-day-old conflict with the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

Spokesmen for the Israel Defense Forces said the goal of the offensive was limited: to destroy tunnels used by the militants to infiltrate into Israel. “This requires precise operations,” their statement said. Among the troops moving in were engineering units with armored bulldozers.
