“On 1/10 of an acre in Pasadena, the Dervaes family grows 6-7,000 lbs of vegetables, herbs, fruits and berries each year, providing 90% of their produce at an estimated annual savings of $75,000.” ~ urbanhomesteading.org

In the post WWII era, power flowed from control of the reserve currency backed by oil. In the emerging multipolar world, as new technologies revolutionize our energy models, power increasingly flows from ownership and access to water, soil and food.

This Thursday, I will be joined by Harry Blazer to launch our new series on food. Harry is my “go to” person on food. In my opinion there is no one who knows more about the subject.

Harry founded “Harry’s Farmers Market” in Atlanta in 1987 and grew it into the largest fresh food market in the country, before selling his business in 2001. In 2005, I moved to the Flathead Valley in western Montana at Harry’s request, to work with him on creating a venture model to finance revitalizing local food production.  While Harry taught me about food, I taught Harry about the real political and economic systems operating on planet Earth.

Harry has agreed to join me on the Solari Report to produce an exciting new series of food – to share with our subscribers his extraordinary understanding of the global food ecosystem and the role of food at the heart of nurturing human health and political and economic freedom.

In this introduction, Harry and I will provide an overview of the future of food and what it means to you – and what you can do about it. Harry will also give us a snapshot of some of the upcoming Solari Reports he will be hosting. We will post a in-depth audio introduction to Harry and a selection of related links, so make sure to login and check out the Subscriber Links.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, Harry and I will discuss Scientists Under Attack which documents efforts to suppress scientific evidence and destroy scientists that question genetically modified organisms and other synthetic introductions into the food supply.

“Properly understood, good money is good, not because of the motives of its owners, but because of its own intrinsic character. Truly good money will produce far more social benefits than any amount of bad money spent with good intentions.”

This week on the Solari Report, Franklin Sanders of The Moneychanger joins me to take a look at precious metals markets.

Franklin and I will review the likelihood that the primary trend in gold and silver is returning. Franklin has more confidence in the outlook for 2016. I am concerned that the number of plausible and unpredictable scenarios are growing across all asset classes. So expect a lively discussion!

We will discuss signs around the globe that the build-out of the gold trading system continues, including the Chinese purchase of a London depository and the State of Texas moving forward with plans for a state depository available to citizens.

We will post Franklin’s charts in the subscriber area in this post on Thursday. Please make sure you login to access them as you listen to the interview audio. They will be posted in the final transcript.

I will also invite Franklin’s comments on what I learned on my trip to Australia.

In Lets Go to the Movies, I recommend Will Smith’s latest film, Concussion, that tells the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic pathologist who fought efforts to suppress his research on brain degeneration suffered by professional football players

No Money & Markets. Catherine will answer your questions for the Ask Catherine section next week.

“A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt

In 2008, Helen Chaitman was a highly accomplished New York attorney with a successful litigation practice in lender liability. Then two things happened. She lost her savings when Bernie Madoff’s investment business collapsed.  Then her legal practice also collapsed with the wider financial crisis.

However, some people look misfortune straight in the eye and march on through to victory. Helen started helping Madoff victims. Realizing the importance of clarifying tax treatment, she lobbied Congress on their behalf. Today she has emerged as the leading attorney representing Madoff victims.

Appalled at the truths she was uncovering and the silence of the corporate media, Helen published a website and book JP Madoff: The Unholy Alliance Between America’s Biggest Bank and America’s Biggest Crook.

This week Helen joins me on the Solari Report for an unforgettable interview on the real deal behind the Madoff ponzi scheme and Bernie Madoff’s controlling partner in crime, JP Morgan Chase.

You will never view the US banking and regulatory system the same after you listen to what Helen has to say. Best of all you will be inspired by the powerful intellect and personal courage of one attorney prepared to fight for the rule of law up against “all of the money on the planet.”

From the book:

Our government did not require that a single JPMorgan Chase employee face criminal charges . . . or even lose his job. In deferring the indictment against the bank, the United States government may have feared that JPMorgan Chase is too big to fail. But surely JPMorgan Chase, with 240,000 employees, can survive without the handful of officers who sheltered Madoff from the law for 20 years and, as the bank has acknowledged, violated the law. Are these officers too rich to jail? How did we become a country where powerful employers can purchase immunity from criminal prosecution for their employees?

Since the government won’t protect you, the purpose of this book is to give you the information you need to protect yourselves: when bankers act like gangsters, you should treat them like gangsters, even if the government won’t. And the last thing you should do is trust them with your money.

The special interests that lobbied the Tribeca Film Festival to cancel the documentary VAXXED: From Cover Up to Catastrophe meant to suppress evidence that vaccines are contributing to an epidemic of autism. The suppression backfired. Instead, coverage of the documentary exploded, in no small part thanks to Robert De Niro’s courageous interviews calling for an open discussion of the issues.

This latest dance of suppression inspired me to invite Jon Rappoport of No More Fake News to join me in a discussion of stories of suppression and heroes who outwit it. From the Inquisition through suppression of energy and health care technology to Dark Alliance allegations and other stories of outrageous media manipulation, in this week’s Solari Report Jon and I review many important stories of suppression and the truth tellers who have brought them to light.

Let’s face it: the better you see the game, the less likely that suppression will work.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, we revisit Shut up and Sing, a fascinating documentary about the unsuccessful effort to intimate and censor the Dixie Chicks for criticism of George W. Bush and the Iraq War by their lead singer.  Freedom of artistic expression is critical to freedom of speech and a free society, which is why the global political system invests a great deal of time and money trying to get popular artists and celebrities to toe the official line.
