Solari: Precious Metals Market Report with Franklin Sanders

Solari Update: Precious Metals Market Report with Franklin Sanders

"People handling power are like electrical power systems. Too little resistance and they burn out. Too much resistance and nothing happens."
-- Court Skinner

Given recent events, it's timely that this Thursday is the Precious Metals Market Report with Franklin Sanders.

Gold and silver prices have come down sharply in the last week. We will revisit market fundamentals and Franklin will take a look at the current charts and what these drops mean for fourth quarter market performance.

I will be speaking to you from Holland, location for the upcoming Global Breakthrough Energy Conference. I will cover the election results, including the European response.

I will start with Money and Markets and Ask Catherine. Please post your questions on the blog.

Last but not least, I will review Franklin's new book, At Home in Dogwood Mudhole and invite Franklin to delight you with a few stories from it. We will also update you on the Transformation & Renewals conference in Tennessee last month.

In Let's Go to the Movies: a review of a 1995 documentary about New Zealand legislator Marilyn Waring, who pursued the institutional manipulation of accounting and statistics all the way to the United Nations - Who's Counting? Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies and Global Economics. This documentary is excellent background for the ongoing discussion on the fiscal cliff debates in the United States as we grapple with budgeting and accounting systems designed to ensure centralized control.

From The Blog

Yeah, Though I Walk Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death
It's the look that grabs you: that moment when a person first realizes that civilization can stop and what that means. There is no law that they can count on; community comes as luck may have it. Sometimes there is no luck at all. The machinery can and will turn against them and hit hard.

Oldie but Goodie: Where Is The Collateral?
I had someone tell me the other day that there were no serious warnings regarding the extent of the fraud in the US housing bubble. That is simply not true.. Chris Sanders published this piece five years before Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were nationalized. Why did institutional investors repeatedly ignore warnings from numerous credible sources, including myself or an experienced investment professional such as Sanders? That is a question that needs to be addressed.

Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen
"Others are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves."

Breakthrough Energy Movement
Catherine will be attending and speaking at the Breakthrough Energy Movement (BEM) in Hilversum Holland November 9th through the 11th.

Food Safety

As the holiday season approaches, we continue to reflect on our many blessings, including your friendship and support. We also continue to reflect on safe food.

Last year, we made a single donation to Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, which protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce. Two years ago we made donations to local food banks and farmers' markets in every state and country where we have subscribers: all 50 U.S. states and 23 countries.

This year, we've decided to make a donation to Jeffrey M. Smith's organization, Institute for Responsible Technology You may remember that Jeffrey was on The Solari Report on September 20th and is the leading advocate of promoting healthier, non-GMO food options. We also would like to donate to three more causes, but we need your help. Healthy food is so important and we want to support those who are fighting to protect us from GMOs. Do you know authors, attorneys, scientists, artists, musicians, or activists who are making a positive impact on our world and protecting us from dangerous food? We want to know about them. Please send information about these incredible people and how we can support them to

Gordon Campbell: On Being Accountable, And Holding The Powerful To Account

Don’t know how you feel about it, but the selective unavailability of Ministers and senior public servants to media scrutiny seems to be a growing concern... Yet often and tellingly, they’re not so beyond-radio-contact that they can’t find time to authorise and email a statement unilaterally stating their position. Which indicates that it is the questioning of the party line that they’re choosing to avoid. More>>


Gordon Campbell: On Islam And The Paris Attacks

Presidential contender Ben Carson for instance, wants it to be made illegal for a Muslim to be elected as President of the USA. For the Republican Party at least, freedom of religion in America extends only to tolerating many ways of accepting Jesus Christ as your personal saviour. In reality of course, treating Islamic State as the essence of Islam makes about as much sense as treating the Ku Klux Klan as the essence of Christianity... More>>
