“Ignorance has always been the weapon of tyrants; enlightenment the salvation of the free” ~ Bill Richardson

This week on the Solari Report, I am speaking to family nutritionist Dr. Laura Thompson.
I am increasingly concerned about the risks involved in using US health care systems. In my personal circles, I see persons and couples who are astute at accessing both holistic and conventional health systems. They know how to get the best of both worlds economically.
Other people don’t invest time in understanding health issues and ensuring that providers and treatments have integrity. The consequences can threaten health, lives and financial security.
I asked Dr. Thompson to join me to discuss how to gain the intellectual mastery we need to become informed users of health care information and services – to achieve health care independence. I see this as essential to the financial health of an individual or family, not to mention well being and happiness. It requires an assumption of greater responsibility for our health as well as an investment of time in learning how to do so. Dr. Thompson walks us through the steps we can take to achieve health care independence.
In addition to the latest in financial and geopolitical news in Money & Markets, I will continue my coverage of the first 100 days of the Trump administration and the ongoing saga of the “Swamp Strikes Back” whereby the established Washington interests accuse President Trump and his team of doing what they themselves have, in fact, been doing. The swamp for years has been interfering in foreign elections, engaging in corrupt foreign practices, and enjoying the fruits of illegal sexual activity. The swamp has been emboldened by concerns in the establishment regarding the new teams inexperience amplified by illegal leaking. The leaking may reflect a much wider dissemination of NSA data organized by Obama right before he left office. I will explain why Obama got our Scorpion of the Week award.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Harry & Snowman, a wonderful documentary about one of my childhood favorites – a horse named Snowman. Saved from a trip to the glue factory by Dutchman Harry de Leyer, Snowman became America’s open jumper champion. This is a Cinderella story – one that will reduce you to a combination of tears and gratitude for the opportunity to know a man and a horse this inspiring.
