“In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons… who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind”~Edward L. Bernays

This week on The Solari Report, I will be speaking with Jon Rappoport about mind control. This is a topic I covered in “The Layman’s Guide to Mind Control.” However, various kinds of mind control keep coming up throughout many of our recent discussions.

One of my goals is to be as coherent as possible. Yet I must navigate in a world where I, like all of us, am a target of various mind control efforts. How do I see and understand the mind control tactics being used to engineer and promote an “official reality.” How do I protect my decisions, my time and my assets from disinformation?   I asked Jon if I could join him on his quarterly appearance to help you learn more about this often ignored but important topic. There is no greater immunity to mind control than understanding that such tactics exist.

In our discussion, Jon and I cover:

  • What is mind control – any why is it important to be aware of it?
  • History – from ancient to recent
  • Best books and movies – sources to familiarize yourself
  • Individual programming vs. group programming
  • Political control and financial profit – why mind control is so profitable
  • The mind control we all experience regularly
  • Breaking the spell: protecting and nurturing a strong, coherent mind
  • The benefits of facing and overcoming mind control
  • Where to begin


For more on this topic, I strongly recommend a number of the Solari Reports in our archive, including “The Power of It,” “The Matrix Revealed” (with Jon), “Telling the Truth and Staying Alive” and “Living in Faith.” You can find these and more Solari Reports relevant to moving towards a more coherent mind in the Personal Power Library or the the Real Deal Library linked at your Resource page.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, Jon and I discuss the thought-provoking sci-fi film They Live, which describes the challenges of living with invasive and invisible technology being used by one population to take advantage and manage another population.  One reviewer once said that the Solari Report was where you went to “get your pair of sunglasses.” Check out the movie to find out what that means.

There will be no Money & Markets this week as it is the end of the month.

We will post on Thursday!

In 1991, after leaving the Bush I Administration, I founded the Hamilton Securities Group, an investment bank and financial software developer in Washington DC.

In 1993, Hamilton won a competitive bid to serve as the lead financial advisor to the Federal Housing Administration (“FHA”) at the Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”) in reengineering the FHA’s portfolio of mortgage insurance and mortgages, including approximately $10 billion of mortgage loan sales of the HUD held single and multifamily mortgages.

Prior to the loan sales program, the FHA Funds recovered only about 35 cents for each dollar of mortgage insurance payments it made on defaulted mortgages. The mortgage loan sales program that Hamilton designed increased recovery rates on defaulted loans to about 70 – 90 cents for each dollar expended by the FHA Funds, saving the Funds and/or U.S. taxpayers in excess of $2.1 billion (in the form of credit subsidy savings). Among other headlines, the results inspired Barron’s to describe the loan sales as, “At last, HUD does something right for taxpayers!”

A manned mission to Mars is necessary for our ‘species to survive’, says Nasa chief Charles Bolden as he plots a three-step plan to land humans on the red planet by 2030.

To achieve this stellar ambition, Mr Bolden, head of the US space programme and a veteran space shuttle pilot, outlined a series of ‘stepping stones’ to Mars that include ‘lassoing’ an asteroid and bringing it into the Moon’s orbit by 2015, growing plants in space and using 3D printers for onboard repairs.

Tensions are relatively high between China and Japan, respectively the world’s second- and third-largest economies.

Just yesterday, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made a ritual offering to the controversial Yasukuni war shrine, an act that can only worsen relations between Japan and China.

Recent rows between the two nations have largely been tied to an ownership dispute regarding a string of islands in the East China Sea.

And just like that, we’re almost done with the month of April. So you know what that means? The ‘Sell in May and Go Away’ chatter now begins. Does it work? Does it not work? Should we always sell in May? Why does it work? Where does this come from? What if I’m more long-term? What if it’s a midterm election year? All great questions.

Let’s begin with where this originally came from. The old saying is officially,

“Sell in May and go away. Stay away till St. Leger’s Day”

The U.S. has agreed to give up supervision of the Internet policy-making body that controls domain names, hoping to satisfy countries that want more international control over the Internet. This week, Washington will find out if its actions have eased global tensions over its cyberspying activities.

World representatives are arriving in Brazil for Net Mundial, a two-day meeting about Internet governance that starts Wednesday in São Paulo. The meeting comes amid fallout over spying by the U.S. National Security Agency that has renewed concerns over the U.S. government’s credibility and over longtime U.S. oversight of the Internet.

Vladimir Chizhov, Russia’s ambassador to the European Union, said Russia is partnering with China in two major Crimean projects: the “Power of Siberia” gas pipeline and a 25 meter deep Crimean deep water port. These projects will continue despite the ongoing crisis in the Ukraine, Chizhov said.

Members of the Open Source Seed Initiative this week held a rally and seed giveaway event. The group is concerned over restricting access to seeds through patents. They are stirring up public awareness over their mission to model a new crop system of seed-sharing in the spirit of open source software. On Thursday the OSSI group gathered at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, to give away a set of seeds that can be used by anyone. The seeds are unrestricted by patents or intellectual property barriers. They released 29 new varieties of crops under an “open source pledge” for farmers, gardeners and plant breeders. The new varieties involved broccoli, celery, kale, quinoa and other vegetables and grains released under their novel Pledge, to be printed on all OSSI seed packets.
