Two weeks ago, Rev. Franklin Sanders helped me address Spiritual Warfare from a Christian perspective. However, I want our discussion to be ongoing and inclusive.

I am always fascinated listening to Jon Rappoport talk about what is happening spiritually. We align on the most important concepts, though we come at and describe them differently. So  I was thrilled when Jon agreed that he would address Spiritual Warfare on his quarterly report for the Solari Report this coming week.

What is Spiritual Warfare? To what degree is it a battle against opposing forces? To what degree is it the individual at odds with himself/herself? How does one tell the difference? Is there a litmus test? Is there a dimension of world affairs that supersedes and stands outside the events of the day, a spiritual dimension in which planet-shaping decisions are made. This is Jon at his very best!

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

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Unmistaken Child, a 2008 documentary which follows a Tibetan Buddhist monk’s search for the reincarnation of his beloved teacher, the world-renowned lama (master teacher) Gershe Lama Konchog.

Talk to you Thursday!

To say that Naomi Klein’s new book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. Climate Change is disappointing is an understatement.

Klein’s best seller Shock Doctrine was a tour de force. For several years after its publication, it was a pleasure to see Naomi Klein fearlessly debating Alan Greenspan and putting him neatly in his place.

I am still waiting for the book on climate change that deals with reality, makes sense of the issues and frames the uncertainty for busy people with little or no scientific background.

For such a book to do so it would need to:

  • Provide an overview of climate trends based on hard statistics from redundant sources;
  • Explain trends in geophysical dynamics such as the deterioration in the magnetic fields:
  • Provide an overview of space weather and explain trends related to current climate behavior;
  • Address the relationship between the global spraying program that has been ongoing since the mid-1990’s and what has been happening with our climate – HAARP too;
  • Address serious allegations regarding weather manipulation and weather warfare and how they relate to symptoms attributed to climate change;
  • Frame the scientific debate between those who believe that climate trends are a function of man made behavior, including fossil fuel use, or trends related to space weather and geophysical conditions;
  • Stop confusing the current central banking warfare model with capitalism and markets. There is a difference between organized crime and managed/manipulated economics and market economics. A coherent picture of the real economics we are dealing’ with is important to understand, as markets are potentially a very important part of real solutions; and
  • Understand the relationship between fossil fuels and the current dollar reserve currency status. As Chris Powell once said, “fiat currency has done far more environmental damage, then all the mining companies have ever dreamt of doing.” This discussion would include an understanding of Jim Norman’s “Oil Card” and the national security management of global oil prices as an essential component of our current system.

“Keep calm and hire yourself”~Seen at Pinterest

Kickstarter is the largest platform for crowdfunding creative projects. Since starting in 2009, Kickstarter has helped to raise over $1.3 billion for 71,350 successfully funded projects.

The US micro-equity and venture markets are still waiting for the Securities and Exchange Commission to publish regulations implementing provisions of the JOBS Act to permit the sale of securities through crowdfunding portals. In the meantime, foreign portals are growing as are US online platforms such as Kickstarter that finance entrepreneurs through gifts and pre-production orders.

One of the attractions of crowdfunding is that it provides access to funding and support for many people who have traditionally been shut out of capital raising avenues: artists, geeks, documentary makers and – you guessed it- women. A recent academic study reported in WSJ  shows a high participation rate of women both funding and leading successfully funded projects on platforms such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

This week on The Solari Report, I will speak with San Francisco Bay Area nutritionist and chef Karen Wang Diggs about her highly successful kickstarter project Kraut Source.  Karen is a chef with extensive experience both in North America and Asia as well as a gifted entrepreneur with a knack for helping busy people combine good health and fresh, delicious food.

Karen and her partner launched their campaign to raise $35,000 to launch Kraut Source – kitchenware for making fermented foods like sauerkraut and natural pickles. Kraut Source blew by their goal, raising $184,133 from 3,355 funders. (I was one) That is quite a customer base with which to start a business! Karen just returned from the New York Maker Faire where Kraut Source was one of five successful projects highlighted by Kickstarter.

Should you consider crowdfunding? How do you do it? What works and why? Karen and I will walk you through the ingredients to her success. Send or post your questions!

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

In Let’s Go to the Movies, here is “The Art of Asking,” Amanda Palmer on her philosophy as performance artist and attractor of global crowdsourced support.

Our friends from The Secret Space Program have very kindly allowed us to provide the video to our subscribers! If you are a subscriber and cannot view the videos login here!

By The Secret Space Program:

“What is in space now and what can be? How does space influence all of our lives? Are there Cosmic Cultures and Civilizations? Are they visiting us, are they under us? If so, how will this impact our lives? Midst all the myths and legends, speculations and interpretations, theories and perspectives, fears and “research”, how does one discern the truth? With the spins and twists presented in books, documentaries, conferences and speakers, you might find your answers during this unique conference.

If we manage to ask the right questions and put some of the pieces together we might be getting closer to some kind of answer – what is really going on out there? Who is really running things? What are their goals? Why are they behaving this way?”

Today, Thursday 16 October 2014, WikiLeaks released a second updated version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Intellectual Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the world’s largest economic trade agreement that will, if it comes into force, encompass more than 40 per cent of the world’s GDP. The IP Chapter covers topics from pharmaceuticals, patent registrations and copyright issues to digital rights. Experts say it will affect freedom of information, civil liberties and access to medicines globally. The WikiLeaks release comes ahead of a Chief Negotiators’ meeting in Canberra on 19 October 2014, which is followed by what is meant to be a decisive Ministerial meeting in Sydney on 25–27 October.

Despite the wide-ranging effects on the global population, the TPP is currently being negotiated in total secrecy by 12 countries. Few people, even within the negotiating countries’ governments, have access to the full text of the draft agreement and the public, who it will affect most, none at all. Large corporations, however, are able to see portions of the text, generating a powerful lobby to effect changes on behalf of these groups and bringing developing country members reduced force, while the public at large gets no say

China and Russia are considering building a high-speed rail line thousands of kilometres from Moscow to Beijing that would cut the journey time from six days on the Trans-Siberian to two.

The project would cost more than $230bn (£144bn) and be over 7,000km (4,350 miles) long – more than three times the world’s current longest high-speed line, from the Chinese capital to the southern city of Guangzhou.

The railway would be a powerful physical symbol of the ties that bind Moscow and Beijing, whose political relationship has roots dating from the Soviet era and who often vote together on the UN Security Council.

“There is too little economic risk-taking, and too much financial risk-taking.” ~ Christine Lagarde

By Catherine Austin Fitts

The financial news is full of fear (like all other news these days in response to a wide selection of fear mongering boogeymen) regarding the drop in the US equity markets. We are long overdue for a 10-20% correction. The last three years have been surprising for the absence of volatility in the broad market indices. Some of us now associate market drops with 2008-2009 swan dives as opposed to natural market consolidations.

If the global economy has one problem it is that the efforts to institute global control are throttling the functioning of markets and animal spirits. That weakness is in turn compensated with more monetary infusions directed into the pockets of those who are trying to control. Hence, we see strong profit reports from the large financial players this week.

Is the global financial system a battle zone or a mechanism for pricing, liquidity and transactions? Time will tell.

In the meantime, a correction is underway. That is a healthy thing. That is what markets do. They go up and down. If we want them to go up again, we would be well served to invite the war machine and the boogeyman media machine to take a break.

What you and I can do is to refuse to take them seriously.

“Guard your heart, for out of it flows the wellspring of life.”
~ Proverbs 4:23

According to the latest Gallup poll 76% of Americans are dissatisfied with how things are going. That is not a pretty dataset for Congressional incumbents headed into a midterm election.

However, voila! Magically, Americans are not thinking about the serious issues before us. No, we are suddenly concerned about ebola and ISIS. We want government to take on a more active role, thanks to a variety of rapidly growing terrors du jour (ebola, ISIS, etc.)

Indeed a new ABC News poll claims that two-thirds say government should do more about ebola!

More government, more government, more government!
