  • In recent years there have been methods developed to decentralize investing. We take a close look at crowdfunding, the legal issues and dangers involved, and how to approach it as an entrepreneur. Crowdfunding is an important step forward in supporting both small and large efforts for the individual and groups alike.

    This Solari Special Report includes legal pathways to help navigate these new developments.


    As we look over the fiscal cliff into our financial abyss, now is a good time to “Come Clean” about the real state of our lives, our communities, and our economy, starting with the U.S. federal finances that flow deeply and intimately throughout every aspect of our lives.

    This Solari Special Report includes (22) challenges we must address to put our federal fiscal house in order.

    The Universe

    “One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything.”
    ~Winston Churchill

    I sent best-selling author Whitley Streiber and copy of our annual wrap up and challenged him to tell us what we should add to our analysis. Whitley joins me this week on the Solari Report  to discuss a number of fascinating topics which he believes are critical to understanding our world and times:

    • Pacific ocean warming patterns and the possibility of a protracted drought on the US’ West Coast
    • A decline in air circulation over the northern hemisphere caused by a slowing Gulf Stream
    • Atmospheric flares and increased volcanic activity
    • Retaining and growing wealth amidst sweeping earth changes
    • The Large Hadron Collider and the possibility of parallel universes

    Planet Debt

    “The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that. So there is zero probability of default.”
    — Alan Greenspan

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    The dominant theme in our Annual Wrap up in January was Planet Equity. In our 1st Quarter Wrap Up, we explore a related part of the global balance sheet: Planet Debt.

    The systematic harvesting of countries around the globe has been ongoing since WWII – whether by encouraging countries to issue debt, particularly dollar denominated debt, or to buy US debt. It is not surprising that some of the biggest buyers of US Treasury securities are nations that have had a US military presence since WWII. Nor is it surprising that there is a relationship between large military expenditures and high debt levels.

    Global Military Expenditures(click to view a larger version)

    What has evolved on planet earth is the ultimate financial entrapment operation in which one set of players can:

    • Create fiat money and lend at zero expense
    • Maintain an information advantage that violates the laws related to material omissions in financial transactions, fraudulent inducement and predatory lending
    • Engage in dirty tricks that impact the borrower’s ability to pay
    • Legislate laws and regulations that make it profitable to lend to people who fail and cannot pay back their debt principal

    On Thursday, April 23, the Solari Report team will publish our First Quarter Wrap Up, complete with a web presentation including graphs and charts designed to “pull back the curtain” on this important subject.

    I will be covering:

    • How global debt is an essential part of the central banking-warfare model
    • Debt and the “Databeast”
    • Global and domestic blowback resulting from debt
    • Mandating markets for monopolists
    • Q1 News stories and trends
    • Q1 Financial markets
    • Where it’s all going

    il nous faut de l’audace, et encore de l’audace, et toujours de l’audace” ~ George Danton

    By Catherine Austin Fitts.

    In 1998, the leading Washington newspaper pulled a story on the targeting of my company by dark forces the night before it was to publish. One of their lead investors and board members was a major power behind the scenes in the mortgage and investment world. The family that owned them was investing in real estate in the areas in Washington being gentrified. The consequences to me were dire – even life threatening.

    This was not the first experience I had with the politics of corporate media. During the Bush Administration, a very capable investigative reporter wrote a profile of me for the leading New York newspaper. As it was going to print, she got a call from the printers that the Washington bureau chief was changing it – fabrications were being added. She appealed to editors in New York. The story was pulled and she resigned.

    My frustration with corporate media was more than personal. For many years in Washington, I had worked with the detailed budgets of federal money and credit that controlled the US mortgage markets. I watched the real policy decisions being hardwired in the budgets. What the political and financial press described was an entirely different reality. I watched the fraudulent inducement of the American people in another housing bubble – engineered with the help of media. I watched the devastation of people around the world. I also watched honest, courageous reporters who tried to do something about it targeted, pushed out, even killed.
