“Our children face the possibility of death or serious long-term adverse effects from mandated vaccines that aren’t necessary or that have very limited benefits” ~ Jane M. Orient, MD, AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons) Executive Director

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This coming Thursday is Thanksgiving. Some of the people I will be giving thanks for are the many people in our network who protect our health freedoms, including attorney Alan Phillips.

Alan Phillips, author of The Authoritative Guide to Vaccine Legal Exemptions, joins me on The Solari Report this week.

Alan joined us on The Solari Report in 2009 when many of us were concerned about efforts to mandate a swine flu vaccine. He joined us again in 2013 to address increased efforts to mandate vaccines for health care professionals as well as growing pressure on parents from school systems.

Subscribers have said they wish to avoid vaccines, but don’t know how to handle various legal, regulatory and professional obstacles. We have asked Alan to help you understand how to get accurate information on the law and latest developments in this area.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend Gary Null’s Silent Epidemic; The Untold Story of Vaccines. For those who want to explore this topic further, here is Dr. Suzanne Humphries recent lecture in Sweden on vaccines and health.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries Part Two

Dr. Suzanne Humphries Part Three

Dr. Suzanne Humphries Part Four

And, of course, my favorite source on the vaccine topic is our very own Jon Rappoport whose pit bull commentary at No More Fake News keeps me laughing no matter how bad it gets!

It is the last week of the month, so no Money & Markets.

Have a bountiful Thanksgiving. Here at The Solari Report, the entire Solari team and I are giving thanks for you!

“Strange, strange are the dynamics of oil and the ways of oilmen.” ~ Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Oil is down 23% year to date – most of that fall has been in the last three months.

What does it mean? There are many variables at play – new supplies coming on line, global economy slowing, better economics for renewables and the integration of information technology globally. What about our old friend the Oil Card?

With exploration moving into the Arctic, the US faces the possibility that Russia could surpass the US in reserves controlled. We know from our recent interview with Anne Williamson, that the US and allies were successful in the 1990’s asserting greater control and ownership of Russian oil reserves and production capacity by particularly brutal means after successfully playing the Oil Card – manipulating the oil price lower to accelerate the collapse of the Soviet Union.

With Putin leading an effort to reassert sovereignty, including control of Russian oil and commodities, is the Oil Card game switching from checkmating China with a high price to bringing the Russians to heal with falling prices?

Veteran report Jim Norman returns to the Solari Report to discuss what is next for the Oil Card. If you have not read Jim’s book The Oil Card it is one of our top picks for understanding the global economy and the world around you.

I will cover the latest in financial markets in Money and Markets and why British Prime Minister Cameron’s comments after the latest G-20 meeting combined with recent announcements about British sex scandals add up to a new warning signal for the financial system. In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the documentary The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power.

Talk to you Thursday!

“I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing. I think it is much more interesting to live not knowing than to have answers that might be wrong.”          ~Richard Feynman

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report, Chuck Gibson joins me for our quarterly Equity Overview.

In our January Annual Wrap Up, I introduced the concept of the shift from Global 2.0 to Global 3.0. Rather than focus on the deterioration in the government systems from which assets have been shifted, I wanted to focus on the reinvestment of those resources. Where are resources going and what are the implications for our society and economy?

I explored these developments further in our 1st and 2nd Quarter Wrap Ups. The result was many excellent questions from subscribers about the implications for the equity markets and for your investment strategy.

To respond, Chuck and I decided to focus this Equity Overview on the investor’s perspective on Global 3.0.

To do so, I reviewed the twelve trends that will have the greatest impact on the economy in the 3rd Quarter Wrap Up.

This coming week, after Chuck updates us on recent developments in the equity markets, we will describe how these trends are emerging in the equity markets. Then we will cover the key risk issues and the implications to your investment strategy, including the pros and cons or a buy and hold strategy, the role of diversification and the importance of quality in leadership – whether of companies, funds or custodians.

Chuck has prepared a series of graphs and charts that give you a strategic view of both markets and the history of investment performance.

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

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Christoper Nolan’s new science fiction blockbuster, Interstellar.

“There is something permanent, and something extremely profound, in owning a home.” ~ Kenny Guinn

By Catherine Austin Fitts

As lending terms start to relax, more people are looking to buy homes or help their children and grandchildren buy their first one.

There are many benefits to owning your own home – if you do it right. However, finding the right home is a complex matter, let alone going through the process of buying and financing a home. If you have never done it before, the challenge can seem daunting. You are making a purchase of both a major consumption good and, ideally, a major investment.

Dr. Gary Eldred, author of Investing in Real Estate, once sent his students out to interview hundreds of real estate professionals to create a comprehensive list of all the mistakes and pitfalls to avoid, publishing it in his classic The 106 Common Mistakes Homebuyers Make (and how to Avoid Them)

Dr. Eldred joins me on The Solari Report to go back to basics and step through the dos and don’ts of buying a home.

In Money & Markets I will address the latest developments in the financial markets, including a farewell to quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve. I will also discuss some of the immediate opportunity and risk issues in the housing markets for those of you who are looking to buy homes at this time, emphasizing some of the topics that Dr. Eldred and I address in our discussion.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Herman’s House, a remarkable story that takes you inside the wonder of imagining and owning your dream home through the words and story of Herman Wallace who has lived in solitary confinement for 40 years.

“Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Every day we see new announcements about breakthroughs in science and technology in numerous areas. Fusion. Robotics. Nanotechnology. Teleportation. The list is growing.

This week, Dr. Joseph Farrell of Giza Death Star will join me for his quarterly Solari Report. We are going to engage in some “high octane speculation” about the most important scientific and engineering developments underway. What are the ones that are most important to you and me? What will the impact be on our culture, geopolitics and investment in the 21st Century?

You don’t want to miss this one. This discussion will help you understand why I say that the changes over the last ten years are just the beginning. Strap in!

It’s the last week of the month so no Money & Markets.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Snowpiercer, the recent apocalyptic thriller about a group of humans surviving in an ice age traveling around the Earth on a train. More than gruesome, the speech given by Ed Harris for the last twenty minutes is one of the most remarkable descriptions of our existing governance system ever created and the ending eloquently speaks to real solutions.

“Once you embark on a road of imagination and creating, all bets are off. All preconceptions about what you must do, make, think, assume, and believe are yesterday’s news.” ~ Jon Rappoport

By Catherine Austin Fitts

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!

“Keep calm and hire yourself”~Seen at Pinterest

By Catherine Austin Fitts

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.

From the transcript:

Catherine Austin Fitts: Our theme tonight is the shift to 3.0, and we’re going to be looking at twelve trends. This is our 3rd Quarter Wrap-Up. As you know, every quarter we step back and try to get the long view. I think that’s very important.

This was inspired because we decided to do for November our Equity Quarterly Overview a discussion of investment strategy for Global 3.0. Then part of that was going to be the top trends. As you know, I think it’s important to try to align with the primary trends where it makes sense to. (It doesn’t always make sense, and it may not always be what I find the responsible thing to do.) But I think it’s important to know what the trends are and to align with them where you line up.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” ~ Ephesians 6:12

By Catherine Austin Fitts

In recent months I have received an increasing number of requests to address spiritual warfare and the most powerful, invisible forces that operate in our world.

I asked Franklin Sanders, who serves as Reverend and minister of Christ Our Hope Reformed Episcopal Church in West Point, Tennessee where I am a member, to join me. An understanding of spiritual warfare is more than a personal interest. It has helped to bring us safely through some mighty dangerous times.

Franklin and I have agreed we can speak our minds, so be prepared for a serious yet very lively discussion. We will speak as Christians with an expectation to add value to our listeners whatever your spiritual practice.

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

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review a reading by John Cleese of The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis  as well as the animated cartoon movie, Monsters, Inc. These are two personal favorites that speak to critical aspects of spiritual warfare.

Talk to you Thursday!
