Solari Report

This week in Part V, attorney Carolyn Betts joins me to discuss the extensive portfolio of tactics used by the deep state in the legal system. We cover the judicial system, criminal and civil litigation, enforcement, and regulatory and administrative systems. Carolyn has worked for me and my companies since the mid 1990’s – and she has seen it all, from judges and government attorneys who lie, break the law and falsify evidence with impunity to men in black trailing her private travel to FBI phone surveillance. We have also seen the power and importance of judges, attorneys and government employees who believe in and practice the law, despite tremendous pressure from the deep state to do otherwise. We will also engage in storytelling – the top highlights of the legal shenanigans involved in the Real Game of Missing Money.
“Gentlemen, I am obedient to the laws of God and there is nothing that you can say or do that will cause me to violate them. If that means that I am going to jail, then I am going to jail, if only to organize the last group of entrepreneurs I need to run the country when the government collapses. Because if people like me are going to prison, then it is only a matter of time until this government fails.”
~ Catherine Austin Fitts (in 1998 to a group of Washington attorneys hired to represent Hamilton Securities, after one had threatened to pull insurance company representation if she did not abrogate contractual obligations, stating that without such representation she could be steamrolled into prison.)
In our 2018 Annual Wrap Up: The Real Game of Missing Money, I included a personal history which described my experiences dealing with missing money and financial fraud in the U.S. federal government.
In my outline, the last section was going to be a description of the tactics used to slow me down or kill me—both literally and figuratively—in the process. As I finished the 2018 Annual Wrap Up, I concluded that it would be better to record and publ..

I used to live in a first-world country. If I picked up the phone and made a call, it went through. If someone said they would come by to pick up a package by noon, I could count on it. If a stranger came to my house, they had a social or civil purpose—something other than picking up extra cash by turning me in for a regulatory violation or reporting on my personal habits to someone who slipped them money on the digital smartphone. If I bought a package of meat or fish in the supermarket, I did not worry about whether it was real and whether or not it was safe to eat. If I went outside to ride my bike or go for a jog, I did not have to give up and come back indoors because the spraying of heavy metals was so heavy that I couldn’t exercise without coughing. Nor was I required to pretend such things were not happening to maintain my social standing.

For reasons that we cover regularly on The Solari Report, most of us are swimming in a sea of environmental, legal, regulatory, and cultural pollution. Seeking integrity demands greater dependency on others to understand and deal with the explosion of new technology and social engineering around us—maintaining a high learning metabolism is time-consuming. It is easy to become frustrated and let our own standards slip—to acculturate to a debasement of standards.

Integrity is its own reward. If we do our best to maintain integrity in our individual dealings and to limit our dealings to people and institutions that do their best to maintain integrity, it increases our ability to access divine intelligence. Integrity is a pathway through which we can access a much greater power—one that hypermaterialists and the lawless rarely acknowledge or access. It is a power that we need—and one that is ever more delightful to access in these circumstances.

Thomas Meyer and I discussed these issues in our last interview on the Story of Gideon. This included a discussion of the “Midianite” phenomenon—something we are watching with the..

Although the thyroid is tiny in size, it has the power to wreak havoc on you anywhere from head to toe. I have been practicing holistic medicine for over 20 years. I have yet to see any single nutrient help as many patients as iodine. Every cell in your body needs iodine. You can not make a single hormone without it, yet people do not get enough of it.”
~ Dr. David Brownstein, M.D., Author of Overcoming Thyroid Disorders and 59 Diseases Linked to Thyroid Deficiency.

By Brigitte Mouchet

The thyroid is a key driver of many functions in our bodies. It provides our daytime energy, manages our enzymatic processes, it is involved in the production of human growth hormone, contributes to mitochondrial health, which is connected to many chronic diseases, etc. Many people today suffer from a low-functioning thyroid for a variety of reasons, but it is still often undiagnosed.

How can we take care of our thyroid health? Dr. Kae Thompson, a naturopath and the developer of VoiceBio©™, a tool analyzing people’s voice to identify imbalances in the body, tells us about a simple supplement that can restore thyroid health and help us stay healthy.

That supplement is liquid iodine derived from the mineral iodine, which is natural to our bodies, and not plant or ocean-based sources that need to involve the liver. The thyroid uses iodine to produce thyroid hormones.

In this interview we invite you to take a deep dive into the role of the thyroid and its back-up organ, the adrenals, to understand the importance of keeping your thyroid healthy.

I am enjoying the European heat wave here in Italy as the power struggles along the Silk Road grow ever more fascinating.

The Silk Road connects a rising Asia with the European Union – the largest, wealthiest consumer market in the world. As China builds roads and railroad connections that dramatically shorten the distance between East and West, a rising land empire and Chinese naval investment in the South China Sea are supplanting the naval power that the Anglo-American Alliance has used to lead and dominant global trade for centuries.

These changes have challenged the future of Europe – and its relationship to the United States and United Kingdom. The shock of the Brexit vote in 2016 was followed by the Trump election and the US withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Paris Agreement, the Iran agreement and efforts to renegotiate NATO.

Now new EU leadership has emerged. This includes Ursula von der Leyen, former German Defense Minister, as the new EU President and Christine Lagarde, former head of the IMF and French Minister of the Economy, Finance and Industry, Agriculture and Fishing, and Commerce, as the new President of the European Central Bank.

Can European leadership play an important role in reasserting a rules based system to support open markets and trade globally? Clearly von der Leyen and Lagarde have the experience and reputation as “adults in the room” to make a major contribution going forward. You can watch von der Leyen’s acceptance speech here.

Further south, the rules based system has flown out the window as Israel pushes aggressively for war (and with their allies, control of the US Congress and US elections) and the US and British navies play a dangerous game of drone and oil tanker chicken in the Straits of Hormuz.

Take a look at a map of Eurasia – Iran is smack in the middle of the rising land empire. It is not surprising that it is important to the flow of oil and resources, not to mention the ..

“The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected.” ~Sun Tzu

This week, I discuss the assassination of James Forrestal with economist, researcher and author David Martin. Martin just published the best work to date on Forrestal’s death: The Assassination of James Forrestal. Read my book review here.

James Forrestal rose from an entry level position to serve as President of Dillon, Read & Co. Inc. on Wall Street. Forrestal was nominated to be Undersecretary of the Navy by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1940 where he led the national effort for industrial mobilisation for the war effort during World War II. He was named Secretary of the Navy in May 1944 (then a cabinet level position), and the first Secretary of the newly created Defense Department by Roosevelt’s successor Harry S. Truman after the passage of the National Security Act in 1947.

Forrestal was forced to resign by Truman after his reelection on March 28, 1949. He was then essentially placed under house arrest at Bethesda Naval Hospital where he was murdered in the early am hours of May 22, 1949, shortly before his brother was expected to arrive to assist him in leaving the institution.

The CIA was created by the National Security Act in 1947. Its powers were expanded dramatically a month after Forrestal was assassinated. The CIA Act of 1949 was passed by the House on March 7, 1949, by the Senate on May 27, 1949, reported and agreed to by the joint conference committee from June 2-7 and signed into law by President Truman on June 20, 1949. It authorized the CIA “to use confidential fiscal and administrative procedures and exempted it from many of the usual limitations on the use of federal funds. The Act (Section 6) also exempted the CIA from having to disclose its “organization, functions, officials, titles, salaries, or numbers of personnel employed.” It..

“It is hard for countries to accept the US dollar as settlement for international trade when the US has been excused from accounting. People do not want to do business with entities that do not have accounting.” ~ Rob Kirby on the adoption of FASAB 56

It’s time to begin our 2nd Quarter 2019 Wrap Up – my announcement of our theme, The State of Our Currencies, and overview is at Solari.com.

This week we publish the first in our two-part publication of the News Trends & Stories for the 2nd Quarter 2019 Wrap Up. Dr. Joseph P. Farrell joins me for our analysis of what is happening in 2019—and where the world is going.

In Part I, we look at the top stories in Economy & Financial Markets and Geopolitics. We also fill in the Trump Report Card for the 2nd Quarter.

I hope you take advantage of both Parts I and II—I know of no better round-up of the deeper news than these quarterly discussions. Our team invests significant time each quarter to convert months of headlines into actionable intelligence which gives our subscribers mastery of the economic, political and cultural flows in which we navigate.

Just when I feel I have achieved a synthesis, I sit down with Dr. Farrell and something remarkable happens. Joseph’s understanding of history, science, culture and ability to integrate across many sectors takes the conversation into a whole new mind. Our discussions this month were some of our most insightful and fun recording sessions yet.

Here are our choices for the top stories for Part I:

Economy & Financial Markets:

Story #1: Secret Books & FASAB 56: US Securities Markets Go Dark
Story #2: U.S. Debt Spiral & Reserve Currency Pains
Story #3: Slowbalization: Recession Looms, Equity Markets Correct; Interest Rates Fall
Story #4: Technocracy, Farmageddon and the Reengineering of Land and Real Estate
Story #5: Trade Wars: Superpowers Bare Their Teeth Over Sea Lanes, Borders, Back Doors & AI

Geopolitics:

Story #6: Elec..

This series is my download about the tactics I have encountered personally or have observed at close hand. I have experienced a wide spectrum of covert operations, information and economic warfare, and dirty tricks with and from both governmental and private parties.

Special Solari Report: Scared to Debt – the Student Loan Entrapment with Mike Camoin

“I find it challenging to invest in an economy in which so many powerful people are financially dependent upon human failure. Worst among them are those who are financially vested in the failure of our young people, for that is ultimately the failure of the future itself.” ~ Catherine Austin Fitts, The Economic Hit Man of Student Loans

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Filmaker Mike Camoin joins me to discuss Scared to Debt – the documentary that he and Student Loan Justicefounder Alan Collinge are making. Check out the trailer:

Scared to Debt will help support efforts to return standard consumer protections to student loans and reverse the ongoing debt entrapment of people who seek an education.

I encourage our subscribers and readers and anyone concerned about the entrapment of the next generation and the desire for a positive future to support Mike and Alan with your prayers, your donations and your promotion of their work – send the trailer and this interview far and wide!

You can donate to their Go Fund Me Campaign for the film.

Do you have young people in your life? Help them do an analysis of the return on investment for both the time and money they invest in their education. They need to justify every class and aspect of their curriculum as to how it will contribute to their future. They need to ensure that the economic investment they are making will produce a positive return on an economic basis.

If a university can not demonstrate how the skills they will acquire will generate the income in the economy that will exist when they graduate (as opposed to the one that existed when the universities curriculum was designed) that will be required on an after-tax basis to pay off any debt incurred, it is not the university for them.

As a society, we need to start applying return on investment criteria to invest in our children’s success as opposed to using it to harvest the ne..

“In a digital age, data about money is worth more than money.” ~ Nicholas Negroponte
By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week Patrick Wood, publisher of Technocracy News, joins me to continue our discussion on technocracy. Make sure you have first listened to our introduction to technocracy here.

This week Patrick and I take a look at Opportunity’s Zones – a US tax shelter investment vehicle authorized by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

Opportunity Zones teams are prototyping technocracy’s “last mile” in the United States. As global capital returns to North America, opportunities in real estate abound. Entrepreneurs and investors can shift enormous unrealized capital gains out of tech companies and the stock market at a relative high and into real estate and related digital integration in communities at relative low prices.

Put aside your prism of national competition. Look at the world through the prism of digital control – the competition to own and access the satellites, telecommunications, information systems, software and AI that implement “the databeast” is reaching a fevered pitch. Or as Patrick says, “data is the new oil” and we are entering a new period of “digital depotism.”

The implementation and intense competition is accelerating globally. You can see it everywhere:

burdensome EU regulatory schemes from Brussels
an invasive social credit system in China
mandated systems and software overwhelming US healthcare, forcing consolidation of independent doctors
India’s aggressive push for biometric IDs, on line payment systems and cashless requirements
central banks world wide developing blockchain and cryptocurrency systems
DOJ and FTC assertion of control of Facebook, Google, Amazon and Apple before the 2020 election
central bank manipulation of market prices – gold, oil price, and interest rates
competition for the DOD Jedi Contract as Amazon
US targeting of Huawei – who will have back door access and win in the 5G roll out?
Snowden’s Exposure of NSA,..

Deep State Tactics 101 Part II with Catherine Austin Fitts

“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

By Catherine Austin Fitts

In our 2018 Annual Wrap Up – The Real Game of Missing Money, I included a personal history to help explain why I am so confident that the excuses used to justify and cover up the missing money are bogus, I included a personal history of dealing with missing money and financial fraud in the U.S. federal government:

C. Austin Fitts, Assistant Housing Secretary, conferring with assistants during a break in her testimony before a Senate subcommittee, 1989. (The New York Times/Andrea Mohin)

Missing Money: A Personal History: 1989-2019

In my outline, the last section was going to be a description of the tactics used to slow me down or kill me—both literally and figuratively—in the process. As I finished the 2018 Annual Wrap Up, I concluded that it would be better to record and publish this material as a separate audio.

This series is my download about the tactics I have encountered personally or have observed at close hand. I have experienced a wide spectrum of covert operations, information and economic warfare, and dirty tricks with and from both governmental and private parties. Telling stories is a great way to communicate this experience; however, because stories expand the time necessary to convey the information, I will publish this material in several parts.

The Popsicle Index.

I made the decision to write “Dillon, Read & Co. Inc. and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits” in the middle of a vegetable garden in Montana during the summer of 2005. I had come to Montana to develop a venture capital model to support a healthier, fresher local food supply. If we want clean water, fresh food, sustainable infrastructure, and healthy communities, we are going to have to finance and govern these resources ourselves. We cannot invest in the stocks and bonds of large corporations, banks and governments that are harming our food, water, environment and all living things and then expect these resources to be available when we need them.

My hope is that “Dillon, Read & the Aristocracy of Stock Profits” will help you to see the game sufficiently to recognize the dividing line between two visions. One centralizes power and knowledge in a manner that tears down communities and infrastructure as it dominates wealth and shrinks freedom. The other diversifies power and knowledge to create new wealth through rebuilding infrastructure and communities and nourishing our natural resources in a way that reaffirms our ancient and deepest dream of freedom.

With this in mind, I decided to write “Dillon Read & Co Inc. and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits” as a case study designed to help illuminate the deeper system. It details the story of two teams with two competing visions for America.

My hope is that as your powers grow to see the financial game and the true dividing lines, you will be better able to build networks of authentic people inventing authentic solutions to the real challenges we face. My hope is that you will no longer invite into your lives and work the people and organizations that sabotage real change. If enough of us come clean and hold true to the intention to transform the game, we invite in the magic that comes in dangerous times.

Yes, there is a better way and, yes, we can create it.

At the end of the Great Depression, there were 3100 community currencies in America. That’s approximately one for each county in America. Since that time, there have been very few community currencies that have met with success in America – despite the potential benefits to local communities. One of the few that enjoyed success for a period was Ithaca HOURS.

This week the Solari Report will publish my interview late last year with Paul Glover, the founder of Ithaca HOURS, regarding his experience and the potential for community currency and other tools to optimize local exchange and resources. I reached out to Paul after a mayor working to increase economic activity in his town asked if we could do a Solari Report on community currency.

Paul is a former professor of urban studies at Temple University, he is author of six books, including Hometown Money, Health Democracy, Deep Green Jobs, How to Take Power, and Los Angeles: A History of the Future. His book A Crime Not a Crisis details corruption in Pennsylvania’s insurance regulation.

Paul emphasizes that regions can take control of the economy to meet their urgent needs. He says, “We are the treasury, and we are the treasure.” He is founder of more than a dozen organizations and campaigns that convert average citizens into job creators, health system managers, urban planners, environmental stewards, and publishers.

Given pressures on global currency systems as well as interest in digital currencies, the time has come for us to spend more time on the Solari Report discussing the state of our currencies.

Listen to the full interview at the Solari Report - solari.com.

Technocracy is a global system designed to implement central resource management and control through rules based micromanagement made possible with digital software, artificial intelligence and the "one way mirror" managed by intelligence and enforcement 24/7 surveillance and secrecy - all funded by our tax dollars.

The beauty of technocracy is that it can be integrated into a wide variety of political and corporate systems. While the US promotes the notion of markets and democratic process, our systems can be converted to technocracy with the endless integration of government, banking and corporate rules and algorithms that manage and control our daily lives and infrastructure. The same process can role out in the one party system of China and the mind numbing regulation by the multiple coalition parties and institutions of the European Union.

Seeing and documenting this process is challenging as it is requires integration of complex operations across many different industries and governments - and it is protected by extraordinary secrecy afforded to the military industrial complex and the central banks and financing system.

Publisher and economist Patrick M. Wood has managed to do this. He is the author of Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation and Technocracy: The Hard Road to World Order. Technocracy Rising is listed on Best Books for 20i8 and Best Books for 2019 in our last two annual Wrap Ups.

Familiarity with technocracy is essential knowledge for understanding and navigating the modern world. Among other things it is the process by which small businesses and enterprises are intentionally driven out of business, creating larger market share for large corporate monopolies. Many of us are managing the increased workload and expense of growing technocracy. Understanding the phenomenon can help.

The Anglo-American alliance is in a period of significant stress. While the United Kingdom buys time with a Brexit extension until October 31, the dominance of the US dollar erodes. All pretence of soft power has given way to hardball – from the arrest of Julian Assange in London last week to the Mayor of New York’s attempt to destroy the health and religious freedoms of the Williamsburg orthodox Jewish community.

There are indications that the US is preparing to follow Netanyahu, emboldened by election success, into a suicidal confrontation with Iran. In the mix, FASAB 56 can now finance secret armies without the interference of seasoned Marines such as General Mattis and General Kelly. The global neocons do not appear deterred by the recent calculation that the United States has spent $5.9 trillion on the War on Terror, including war in the Middle East, since 9/11 – a time when US pension funds were still fully funded.

This signals weakness and insecurity for the US dollar. Like sharks in the water, global institutions are tracking the inability of the American political and business establishment and their global allies to manage the transition without excessive violence and scapegoating. Here is the historical chart for the US Dollar Index – still in a upwards trend while the US dollar remains “dangerous, but dominant.”

Officially reported U.S. Treasury debt is starting to expand at a rapid pace. Outstanding debt is now greater than the US annual GDP and is expanding at an increasing rate. Treasury debt grew by 6% in 2018 and is expected to grow by 8% in 2019, despite many years of “economic recovery.” If the economy slows or goes into a recession, debt growth will accelerate...

It’s easy to understand that we are experiencing a rising tide of environmental toxicity. Just drive around and look at the trees. Or get sick after a year of eating GMO food grown and distributed by large corporations that use significant amounts of chemicals. Or listen to reports of the bee population disappearing. Or watch your house get covered with a nasty grey film from the spraying shortly after you pressure wash it which you do again and again. The mystery is why is this happening and what should we do it about it?

One piece of the puzzle is glyphosate. People that I know and trust repeatedly tell me this one is important. Beware glyphosate, they say, and do everything you can to get it out of your body and keep it out of your body.

Sofia Smallstorm, author of Avatar Update, joins me this week on the Solari Report to discuss glyphosate – what it is and why she is so concerned about it. We discuss her recent stories on polluted Florida shorelines and the alarming number of thoroughbred racehorse deaths – and the possibility that glyphosate and environmental toxicity is threatening whole industries and economies.

Food for the Soul with Nina Heyn
March 30, 2019 0

“Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.” ~ Dorothy Day

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on The Solari Report, Nina Heyn and I take a deep dive into Food for the Soul—Nina’s bimonthly column on films and art for The Solari Report—and into her goals as our roving “culture scout.”

Nina’s interest in art and film developed in her role as a film publicist, an international marketing executive, and an entertainment writer in the United States, as well as England, France, and Poland.

Nina is the founder of Torus International, a marketing strategy solutions consultancy that specializes in entertainment marketing and film acquisition, particularly in international markets. Her recent activities in international markets included service as head of marketing at a leading Polish independent film distributor, and as acquisitions consultant at a European exhibition and distribution company. In the United States, she served as an executive in global publicity for a major film studio—giving her a strong understanding of the worldwide economic and political impact of entertainment and culture.

Every year, Nina watches hundreds of movies and TV shows and spends an inordinate amount of time in museums. This keeps her soul happy and keeps The Solari Report full of fascinating coverage. If you have not discovered the Food for the Soul column, just click on the Food for the Soul icon on the right side of our home page—here.

I joined Nina this March on the next leg of our celebration of Leonardo da Vinci’s 500th Anniversary and Rembrandt’s 350th Anniversary. Check out Nina’s first column on Leonardo da Vinci—The Year of da Vinci.

The story of Gideon is my favorite Bible story. Whenever someone asks “What can I do?” I often tell the story of Gideon.

Last year, I shared the Gideon story with publisher Thomas Meyer. To my delight, he immediately went to Judges 6-9 in the Old Testament and read it. His insights inspired me to invite Thomas to join me on the Solari Report for an in depth discussion of Gideon and why this story offers intelligence so relevant to these times.

Entering into a home mortgage is a major legal and financial undertaking. It quite literally “pays” to take the time to understand your options and ensure that the application and closing process is done correctly. After closing, it is essential that you ensure that the terms and conditions that were agreed to are maintained and enforced. It will be your responsibility to make sure this is the case.

To help you do so, I invited Marie McDonnell, President of McDonnell Property Analytics, to join me this week on the Solari Report. Marie is a Mortgage Fraud and Forensic Analyst™, a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), and a Master Analyst In Financial Forensics (MAFF) with significant experience in transactional analysis, mortgage auditing, and mortgage fraud investigation. Her firm provides a variety of analytical services to individual clients and offers litigation support, mortgage-backed securities research and foreclosure forensics to attorneys nationwide. McDonnell Property Analytics also advises and performs services for county registers of deeds, attorneys general, courts and other governmental agencies.

Because mortgage finance is a complex affair, Marie has generously prepared and provided supporting documents. Please login to find handouts, including:

The Mortgage Loan Origination Process and Pitfalls How to Recognize the Red Flags of Fraud
Document Custodian Checklist
Glossary of Terms

One point you will hear emphasized repeatedly – it is essential that you understand the documents that you are supposed to have and that you sign and that you maintain all copies. Unfortunately, horror stories of what can go wrong abound. However, if you take care to manage your origination, closing and payment of your mortgage and do a good job of archiving your documents, you should be able to avoid potential pitfalls or present your proof if things go wrong outside of your control – such as your mortgage being transferred to a sloppy or fraudulent servicer.
