Deep Survival with Laurence Gonzales

“Trouble comes to us all.” ~ Laurence Gonzales

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report, I speak with Laurence Gonzales of, author of Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why and Surviving Survival: the Art and Science of Resilience.

We pick up on our previous discussion with Laurence on his study of extreme wilderness experiences, Deep Survival, to explore his subsequent research for Surviving Survival about who is successful in overcoming disaster to achieve the “sweet revenge” of a long, happy life.

Laurence also describes his new book, Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival, about the miraculous survival of 184 of 296 passengers on United Airlines Flight 232 in Sioux City  in 1989 – a triumph of heroism over tragedy and human ingenuity over technological breakdown,

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss current events in the news and financial worlds, as the global economy struggles with economic contraction in the developed economies and geopolitical tensions rise.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review my favorite documentary, The Endurance: Shackleton’s Legendary Antarctic Expedition. Be prepared to be inspired by the remarkable courage and leadership of Shackleton and his crew as you accompany them on one of the most astonishing survival stories ever told.

We are a people capable of great generosity, courage and strength.  As Gonzales reminds us, “trouble comes to us all.” However, when it does, we can and do tap into that greatness in us all. This week’s Solari Report is designed to remind you that it is there in you.

Talk to you Thursday!


  1. Hi Catherine,

    Have you seen the new Johnny Depp movie, “Transcendence”?? It is a perfect fit for Mr. Kurzweil’s work (hope I spelled his name correctly). Mr. “Borg” himself. In an interview, televised on the science channel, Mr. Kurzweil said, “the technology to merge human and machine is here, the only reason it has not been implemented is because we can’t be sure who will be in charge – YET (paraphrasing)”.

    To make a long story short, a possible mechanism for this merger is being administered/delivered in chemtrails. At least, that’s what Vincent Freeman is speculating. Vincent Freeman is a molecular biologist and artificial intelligence scientist who has worked on classified programs at some of the top-50 defense contractors. He has also conducted genetic and biological analysis for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

    To my understanding, something called a (cross domain bacteria) is being used to facilitate Mr. Kurzweil’s work. This genetically engineered organism – in the nano spectrum range – can jump from plants to animals to humans, etc., etc., etc.. VERY APPROPRIATE. APPARENTLY, WE ARE ALL INFECTED BY IT ALREADY!!?


    Would you mind interviewing Mr. Freeman and ask him to present his case? Most importantly, would you ask him if there is anything we can do at our level to combat this new organism??!!

    Thank You.

    • Hi Ronald,

      You didn’t do anything wrong, it looks like the uploader of the video we linked to switched the video to private!

      I’ve switched out the video for a different one, so it should work now.

      Thanks for catching it!

  2. Hi Catherine:
    Just listened to your discussion with Joseph Farrell. Thank you both for the high intelligence you bring to these subjects that must be brought into the light of day.

    I am frankly confused by the following elements in our national/global story. Perhaps you can help make them a bit more coherent:

    1. Is our country bankrupt? I keep coming across statements that the US has been bankrupt at least since FDR.

    2. Is it true that all of our Federal taxes go to the City of London and to the Vatican?

    3. Is the US a corporation or a constitutional republic?

    4. It is established that for 100 years the American people unknowingly have surrendered the control of our currency (and thereby the value of our labor and creativity, as well as our peace of mind and dreams for the future) to the handful of families who own the Federal Reserve. This means we lost our sovereignty 100 years ago and have been harvested ever since. Why, then, do we discuss the market, etc. as if it were anything but a sham?

    5. Is the US under a state of emergency? This, too, seems to have begun under FDR and never been ended by any administration since. If yes, then is it also true that our constitution is automatically suspended during a state of emergency?

    6. It is accepted knowledge now that the ones who are responsible for the current state of humanity are determined to eliminate at least 2/3rds of the human population. Evidence of their plan is everywhere, from the chemtrails to GMO foods to floride, chlorine, mercury vaccines, the cancer industry, etc. 41 states have laws that prohibit any community within them from using any alternative to chemical pesticides. Thousands of new chemical substances are allowed to be used in products without any prior testing whatsoever for toxicity to humans. Breast cancer is increasing dramatically. In 1900, one in ten died of cancer. Today, it is almost 2 out of three.
    Our political system is a wholly owned subsidiary of international banking/corporate power.
    What alternatives do we have?

    7. As $40 trillion have been stolen from us, the nation’s infrastructure and quality of life are deteriorating, our money is worthless, and our political/industrial/military/intelligence/financial complex is about to succeed in achieving its goal of “full spectrum dominance” while ruining the biosphere, dooming billions to starvation and manipulating the world’s citizens deeper into an abyss of debt slavery and despair,
    I have to ask:

    When will those who have the stature, intelligence and mental grasp of our plight come together to tell the people what is happening to them and what they can do about it?

    Keep up the good work. We need you.
