“We have to solve our own problems.” ~Charles Hugh Smith

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Blogger and author Charles Hugh Smith of Of Two Minds will be joining me on the Solari Report this week. His work has long had a special appeal for me. No matter what the topic, Charles makes a serious effort to look into the heart of things while integrating a wide range of material – from global geopolitics and finance down to the intimate relationships between people and our money in a world gone mad.

Charles and I will start with a discussion of “soft weapons” – the tactics used to exercise targeted force through legal and financial means or through media and digital systems. Increasingly, invasive digital systems and complex economies create countless ways of waging war without dropping bombs, as described in his recent post on the Ukraine, How the Empire Might Strike Back.   We will be talking about the Ukraine and other points of global tension as symptoms of the wider challenges of “peak everything” – more people, more competition for limited natural resources – and what you and I can do to navigate uncertain times.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the current developments in the economy, geopolitics and financial markets.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, we will be discussing Robert De Niro’s 2006 spy movie, The Good Shepherd.  A fictionalized description of the birth of counter-intelligence in the Central Intelligence Agency, it takes us into the historical roots of today’s soft warfare machinery.

Make sure to post or e-mail your questions by Wednesday!

Our good friend Jon Rappoport has recently been added to Secret Space Program’s speaker list!

From Jon’s description of his presentation for the Secret Space Program:

“How can the breakaway civilization operate with impunity?  There is a vast secrecy about outer space and inner space. Inner space is consciousness.  Eight billion people have to have their inner space shut down, through mind control, so that the outer space program can be kept secret. Divorcing inner and outer space from each other is the core goal of all elites.  It always has been.  My commitment is to ending the divorce.  Then we would be privy to an astounding kind of knowledge.  Not just new information, but a new kind of information.  We would see with new eyes.”

Other attending speakers include Catherine Austin Fitts, Carol Rosin, Joseph P. Farrell, Richard Dolan, Michael Schratt, Robert Morningstar, and Henrik Palmgren.

Half a decade ago, Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo were a pair of untouchable lawmen who could do no wrong.

Their every subpoena became a splashy tabloid headline and their legal integrity was above public reproach. They won the governorships of New Jersey and New York running against political corruption and using one of the most powerful tools in government: the investigatory authority of an attorney representing the people.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt.

When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

This week on The Solari Report, we will post my Precious Metals Market Report interview with Franklin Sanders of The Moneychanger. Gold and silver prices rose in the first quarter and have started to move lower as the consolidation that began in the fall of 2011 continues.

How do gold and silver market performance relate to what has been happening in the global economy? We will address your questions and discuss the road ahead. Please post or e-mail questions and comments by Wednesday evening.
