To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
~ Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was the king of Corinth punished by the gods for cheating Death by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill that rolled down every time it neared the top.

After 25 years of documenting and communicating the financial coup d’état, 2020 was the year I laid my Sisyphean burden down. I was able to do so because the takeover of sovereign governments by the central bankers and the shift to technocracy finally became fully apparent—at least for anyone not under the ever-growing spell of the “shriek-o-meter” (I have given up calling it the “corporate media” as the word “media” is no longer applicable) and massive fear-generating propaganda, entrainment, subliminal programming, and disinformation.

Stepping into the breach to help shine light on what was really happening were hundreds of highly capable and courageous people—many of them documented as Solari Pandemic Heroes in our 2nd Quarter 2020 Wrap Up: The Injection Fraud—emerging from fields such as science, medicine, and law as well as various spiritual traditions. Our challenge was to grapple with the tactics that would most effectively address a monetary and governance event disguised behind a health care crisis, applied together to engineer the greatest disaster capitalism roll up of financial capital and economic wealth yet.

The people who offered us the greatest assistance were many capable subscribers possessing knowledge of science, medicine, technology, and related legal and regulatory areas—as well as on-the-ground experience in their various fields—that were profoundly greater than mine. Without their continuous filtering and feedback, combined with the efforts of the Solari Pandemic Heroes, we would have been flying without wings. Words cannot express my gratitude to all of those who once again proved the point, “No one is as smart as all of us.”

The real kickoff of the Covid-19 pandemic began with the nursing home deaths in New York, which inspired the fear and terror necessary to achieve popular support for the central banks’ infusion of trillions into Wall Street, private equity, and equity players and asset managers, while shutting down Main Street.

As described in my Introduction, my comments for many years describing the financial coup d’état as a society-wide trade-off between retirements and space programs kept reverberating in my mind. For many years, I have been saying, “They looked at all the money necessary to fund nursing homes for the boomers and decided they would rather spend the money on space. So they just took it.”

Now that we are in the end game, how do politicians tell retirees that there is no money for nursing homes? They don’t. Instead, they fund labs, which invent pathogens, injections, and stories of “magic viruses” that will lower life expectancies and save the long-term retirement insurance industry from bankruptcy and bailouts. They withhold treatments that work. They arrange for the injection of what one vaccine maker refers to as “an operating system” that works like a “plug-and-play app.” They contribute to what I call “the great poisoning.”

It is a complex affair, organized around plausible deniability for those contributing to a goal compelled by the actuarial mathematics of many decades of our failure to “turn the red button green.”1 Unfortunately, the people who shut down the economy in the United States in early 2020 were successful in using the shutdown to also engineer control of the presidency in November. Whoever would have believed that killing citizens and their businesses was a winning political strategy? Actually, if you study the history of the illegal narcotics business, you appreciate that criminality has been a winning strategy since the creation of the Federal Reserve system in 1913. In that instance, the central bankers blamed poor people instead of a magic virus.

In February 2020, I arrived in the Netherlands to work with my Dutch partner Robert Dupper to finish The State of Our Currencies and to start a Dutch company, Solari Europa, to handle more of the work Solari was doing in Europe. Our wonderful long-time graphics designer Ben Lizardi had just retired, and Robert had agreed to assume responsibility for the design and publication of the Quarterly and Annual Wrap Ups.

The onset of official lockdowns delayed the process of completing the business filings and made travel problematic, so I decided to stay in the Netherlands until the company was up and running.

The travel and meeting restrictions in Europe meant we had to cancel our Lake Constance Hang. This was a matter of some grief, arousing concern regarding the future of the great operas and symphonies of the world. It was a shocking moment for me when I sent a donation to a special crowdfund for Metropolitan Opera musicians. Billionaires were up by trillions, the central banks were printing money hand over fist, but the finest musicians of our day were having to raise donations? Events also constrained our celebration of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary.

I did get to road-trip to Lake Constance in the summer. I have driven over 500,000 miles in the continental United States since I left Washington and have been to every state. However, this was my first European road trip with me at the wheel. I drove down the Rhine from the Netherlands to Germany and Lake Constance, and then to Switzerland and back along the Rhine.

The Rhine was one of my areas of research in 2020. In the spring as the lockdowns began, I realized that the Rhine flows through many of the places where I stay in Europe, including Lake Constance and Basel (home to Thomas Meyer and his family). In the Netherlands, I stay in Friesland right on the IJsselmeer, which is an enormous closed-off inland bay. I can see the IJsselmeer from my desk window, and I walk along its shores almost every day. The waters of the Rhine in the Netherlands branch into three distributaries: the Waal, Nederrijn (“Nether Rhine”), and IJssel. The IJssel carries the Rhine water into the IJsselmeer.

While I was in Lake Constance in August, Ulrike Granögger and I visited the Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen. Famed for their beauty, these are the falls that prevent boats from traveling the Rhine from Lake Constance to Basel. It’s now on my list to arrange to sail from Solari Europa’s offices (on the port) to Basel with bike and boat.

Another area of recent research has been learning about the ancient cultures of the North Sea and the Rhineland and how they developed their currency and economic models. To my surprise, I discovered that plague laws have been used to centralize control from the Middle Ages forward.

Plague justified the rules that kept a person in her place. . . . We’ve seen how plague became the reason, just like terrorism today, for social regulation, for saying how children must behave, for taking a worker’s right to choose what work he wanted, for deciding which of the poor are worthy of help and which are just wastrels. Plague enforced frontiers that were otherwise wonderfully insecure, and made our movements and travels conditional. It helped to make the state a physical reality, and gave it ambitions.
~ Michael Pye, The Edge of the World

Have a plague; centralize control; shift the reserve currency. It’s beginning to look like a historical pattern to me. This is a great research topic for an enterprising student to dive into—the historical relationships between plagues, political control, and dominant currencies.

Spending time in Basel and at Lake Geneva in August was deeply rejuvenating. Thomas Meyer and I went into the mountains to see Comet NEOWISE. There was something about NEOWISE that seemed to shift the pendulum in support of freedom, inspiring me to ask Nina Heyn to include a piece on comets in the 3rd Quarter 2020 Wrap Up: Visions of Freedom. Don’t miss the Wrap Up—it is absolutely beautiful.

Although Solari Europa was up and running by the end of October, travel restrictions remained a serious concern. So, I stayed put in the Netherlands, making one trip to Switzerland to record interviews with Thomas Meyer and celebrate my Birthday and Christmas with Thomas and his family in Basel and the Jungfrau in the Swiss Alps. While in Basel, I also had the opportunity to participate in a planning session of the World Freedom Alliance—a wonderful group of people from across Europe. As one participant famously remarked, “Friends are turning up everywhere!”

In December, my interview for James Henry’s documentary film Planet Lockdown was released. James had been introduced to me by Mary Holland of Children’s Health Defense. He was traveling in Europe and the United States, doing interviews for the documentary, with an expected release in the 2nd Quarter of 2021. James agreed to come to Stavoren for filming in November. As we sat at Robert’s dining room table, I laid out my understanding of the pandemic as a change of governance and a monetary event—part of the consolidation of the financial coup d’état and the evolution of the dollar reserve currency to a much more centralized control system. Among other things, I said, the “Going Direct Reset” means the central bankers want to use central bank digital currencies to go directly to each person, one at a time. Under such a system, central banks would have the power to turn an individual’s money on and off. But that means installing the “smart grid” globally—from satellites to 5G to smart meters to downloading an operating system into people’s bodies. Notice that these smart grid installations have all accelerated during the pandemic.

James has been posting all of his interviews for Planet Lockdown as he goes—a brilliant strategy—so he posted his interview with me right before Christmas. To my amazement, YouTube did not take it down until early January, by which time it had reached 2.7 million views. (Usually, my videos are censored, “hiccuped,” or whited out by various methods when they hit 100,000 views.) By being more widely viewed, this interview introduced us to new allies, subscribers, and audiences, for which we are deeply grateful.

Concern about the real goals of the injections caused me to write and publish both the article and Wrap Up in 2020 called “the Injection Fraud.” The pandemic is designed to, among other things, get you to begin to install Mr. Global’s operating system at the molecular level. It is already obvious that one “download” will not be enough. That is why we see manufacturing and distribution plans for as many injections as one per month in the United States.

Mr. Global is experimenting with a system that is still in its early stages and still crude. As we watch material adverse events and deaths accumulate as a result of the injections, the question is how much of this is poisoning versus experimentation. Time will tell. The scientists I listen to indicate that the majority of the adverse events and deaths will begin 6-18 months after injection. Because these injections are experimental gene therapy, I don’t believe we can know their full import until we see what happens over a period of months and years.

As the injection fraud was rolling out around the planet, the “shriek-o-meter” continued to progressively double down on fear, spins, shrieks, and disinformation. In addition, the previously more discreet war on free speech and the promotion of censorship through social media got underway with a vengeance. It is extremely difficult to get people to poison themselves and their children and build their own prison when they can gather, speak, research freely, and do so without fear and mind control.

It looks to me like we are in for a multi-year spiritual, legal, financial, and cultural food fight. As Jon Rappoport says, “This is a 10,000-year-old war.”

Words cannot express how grateful I am to be associated with my colleagues on the Solari team and in our network. I get up each day and work with and for people building free and inspired lives. I get to meet and network with thousands of people who are committed to a human future and the decentralization of money creation leading to a much healthier and wealthier civilization.
