Story #11: The Year of Da Vinci
This is the 500th anniversary of da Vinci. Da Vinci was an illegitimate child and largely self-taught—someone who worked his way up from the bottom completely by merit—and yet when he died, the King of France was sitting at his bedside. Da Vinci was a true Renaissance man—scientist, pathologist, civil and military engineer, artist, and musician. He even invented a musical instrument called the Viola Organista (a keyboard instrument that sounds a bit like a violin). He painted not for art’s sake but to earn money for his pathology research. When da Vinci envisioned something that could not be built with existing tools, he went ahead and invented and built the tools, too. His response to evil things that came his way was to create something to help solve the problem—he never stopped inventing solutions. A modern lesson could be, “When the system fails you, teach yourself.”
Story #12: Gates Apologizes for Common Core Failure / JEDI Contract: A Microsoft Win?
When the Trump administration came in, the President and his Secretary of Education were clearly opposed to Common Core. Bill Gates wanted in on the JEDI contract and likely knew that unless he sat down and “kissed the ring” on Common Core, he had no chance. His Common Core apology looks like the price he may have had to pay to weasel his way into Microsoft becoming a JEDI co-finalist (see also Story #15). This represents quite a political accomplishment on the administration’s part—not only to stop Common Core but to get the champion and financier of Common Core to stand up on national TV and say that it was a mistake.
Common Core’s failure in the classroom and its deeper aim of consolidating centralized control over young people underscore the need for youth to take their own education in hand (just like da Vinci). Instead of wasting their time—and their parents’ money—by wandering around in an educational system that makes money for schools and colleges but does not provide students with the necessary education, skills, and tools they need to function in the economy, young people need to ask themselves, “What is the knowledge that I need, and how am I going to get it?”

Story #13: The Weaponization of Drug-Addicted Populations
West Coast cities like Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles are facing a new type of homeless population: highly drug-addicted individuals who all seem to have smartphones and free Obama Plan cell service. Someone has spent a great deal of money ensuring that drugs and phones get to these populations. A hint that this is an intentional weaponization strategy to drive out small businesses and the middle class comes from the fact that despite massive numbers of felonies committed by these street populations, no one is getting indicted, prosecuted, or sent to prison. The management of drug-addicted homeless populations is also draining municipal budgets, while creating shadow work and engineered dysfunction for rescue services, fire departments, and the police. Why is this happening? Why did the California fires happen? It increasingly looks like powerful interests want land and real estate—and they hate to pay market value.

Story #14: 5G and IOT Rollout Accelerates
The U.S. and China are in a race to be the 5G winners. The U.S. wants 5G, in part, to move forward with cryptocurrency (even though 67% of Americans do not want a cashless society) and also to double down on mind control and reengineering of U.S. federal government services with significant privatization. Trump’s enthusiasm for 5G indicates that he either isn’t aware of—or doesn’t care about—the serious health risks. On the other hand, a government minister in Brussels, the EU’s technocrat capital, is aware and cares enough to have put a stop to 5G deployment there, citing the absence of any safety studies. Perhaps the Brussels official’s decision reflects a desire to keep Europe out of the U.S.-China race, or perhaps the minister knows something that has not been made public. Early 5G tests have produced results that are of concern. People living in areas where 5G has already been deployed are complaining of having trouble thinking. What is even more disturbing is that companies could adapt the technology to be safer—but they have chosen not to do so.

Story #15: JEDI Contract—Amazon and Microsoft Are Finalists
Radical reengineering of federal government transactions and payments requires the JEDI contract, which would put the Department of Defense (DOD) into the cloud with the intelligence agencies. The Microsoft-Amazon competition for the contract—now rumored to be worth more than $10 billion—has gotten rather wild. Consider the interesting questions raised by the Jeff Bezos phone hacking, which Bezos tried to answer by hiring one of the world’s top security experts. Was it the Saudis, as Bezos now says? Or, equally likely, Netanyahu and/or Kushner? Glenn Greenwald has not hesitated to point out the irony of the situation: the man who is doing the most to compromise people’s security and privacy is complaining that it happened to him.

Story #16: Increased Competition—The New Space Race
Something is going on in space—and especially on the moon—that we are not being told about and for which there are more questions than answers. What does it mean that so many countries have been sending probes to the moon, including China’s visit to the far side of the moon? Is everyone trying to get to the moon to find out what is occurring up there? Why did a private Israeli company’s robotic moon lander crash in April despite Israel’s technological prowess? Why have U.S. satellites been deliberately maneuvering to within 10 kilometers of Russian and Chinese satellites? Is the U.S. displaying secret capabilities (or sending someone a message)? And what are we to make of the Wikileaks dump (just after Julian Assange’s arrest) implying that the U.S. had a moon base in the 1970s that got destroyed? On the financial front, are offshore havens being extended into space to create a second financial system—above the law and immune from taxes and regulations? What does it mean that a banking haven like Luxembourg is becoming a leading player in the spy satellite business?

FOOD AND HEALTH
Story #17: Glyphosate
More information is coming to light about glyphosate’s many environmental and economic impacts, including its effects in tourist areas. The herbicide’s build-up in waterways is doing to small waterfront tourism businesses what weaponized populations are accomplishing in Seattle. Studies are also showing how glyphosate destroys soil nutrients. Our interviews indicate that the yield of GMO crops decreases while farmers’ expenses increase; although non-GMO crops do not have that problem, the banks keep funding the glyphosate-dependent agricultural model. Sofia Smallstorm has been writing about unprecedented levels of race horse deaths, hypothesizing that horses’ multiple exposures to glyphosate are contributing to fatally weakening them. Whether it’s glyphosate or a combination of glyphosate and other toxic exposures, we should be asking the question, “If it’s doing this to race horses, what is it doing to humans?”

Story #18: A Million Acres of U.S. Farmland Flooded
With over a million acres of U.S. cropland ravaged by floods, disaster capitalism is in full swing. Investors are going to be able to pick up flooded farmland for cheap while consumers get hit with soaring food prices. Solari’s 2016 Annual Wrap Up focused on the global harvest, describing how cheap food in the U.S. came in part at the cost of switching from real food to fake food. Now, that strategy is backfiring. People are not prepared for the changes that are coming in the food supply and food pricing. In Europe, the quality of food is better—and cheaper. Europe still has vibrant small farms, and, with the exception of animal feed, GMOs are largely absent. Russian agriculture—100% GMO-free—is booming. In North America, the push to centralize control of the food system puts every small farmer in danger. We should all do whatever it takes to establish a local food supply and support local farmers, particularly those using organic farming practices. Alfred Popp’s research shows that organic foods have far greater energy and vitality. Be sure to watch Ulrike Granögger’s “Wave Genome” presentation (part of The Solari Report’s Future Science Series) if you have not already done so.

Story #19: Vaxxed
The vaccination issue is coming to a head, with efforts underway around the country to eliminate vaccine exemptions. Some sectors of the pharmaceutical industry have been in a slump, so the industry is likely looking at ways to make more money from vaccines. The state of North Carolina bar association has targeted one of the country’s leading vaccine exemption attorneys—Alan Phillips. (You can find several interviews with Alan on The Solari Report as well as links to his website to help support his efforts.) It comes down to a personal sovereignty issue—is my body my body, or does it belong to the state and the pharmaceutical companies? Can the state require me to be poisoned? This is a vital question because the vaccine injury of a child can destroy a family and the family’s finances. At this point, vaccines are like U.S. Treasuries—not to be trusted. Assuming that all vaccines are guilty until proven innocent is the only logical operating assumption.

Story #20: Quantum Biology Blossoms
The blossoming of quantum biology is very exciting because it shows a pathway to better health at very low cost. Jason Bawden-Smith’s work on the mitochondria points to the importance of simple measures such as getting more sunlight, reducing time spent in artificial light, and walking outside without shoes. Bawden-Smith and Dr. Jack Kruse also recommend drinking deuterium-depleted water, and soil expert Don Huber recommends detoxing glyphosate with a daily dose of organic apple cider vinegar. Let’s do whatever we can to withstand 5G’s assault on our mitochondria!

Story #21: Weakening of Earth’s Magnetic Field
The geophysical record shows that the magnetic field goes through cycles. No one is adequately looking at the relationship of manmade electromagnetic energy on the magnetic field. Yet it seems likely that devices such as CERN’s Large Hadron Collider—which generates immensely strong magnetic fields that are locally several times stronger than the field of the earth—would be producing some sort of planetary resonance effect. This could have a great deal to do with what is happening with the sun because the magnetosphere of the earth and the magnetosphere of the sun touch. In effect, the solar system is electrically and magnetically dynamic. If you can produce a resonance effect in the planet’s magnetosphere—think ionospheric heaters—it seems possible that you may have resonance effects on the sun itself. We also should be considering the correlation between economic activity and solar activity. CERN may be conducting data correlation experiments that don’t just look at what happens to the magnetosphere but also what happens to human activity when the Collider is on.
