Retired senior NSA intelligence officer William (“Bill”) E. Binney joins me on the Solari Report this week.
Every day we hear that technology is the cause of ever-greater inequality of wealth. But how exactly does this happen? In fact, the inequality starts with tax dollars funding government and private contractors, who enjoy the world’s most expensive satellite and digital communications and information systems to collect and store your private information. As Binney says, “The ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control.” In short, American citizens are authorizing and paying NSA and the syndicate of private corporations they fund to control you and to profit at your expense.
In October 2001, concerned about the constitutionality of NSA policies and programs, Binney retired after a highly successful 30-year career with NSA. Binney has been described by some of his colleagues as one of the best analysts in the NSA history. As told in the documentary A Good American, Binney built “ThinThread” – a cost-effective surveillance system that protected Americans privacy, only to see ThinThread passed over by agency political appointees for a much more expensive, less effective system of bulk acquisition of data run by private contractors.
Since leaving his position as an NSA intelligence office, Binney has educated, litigated, and tirelessly worked to return the United States and its allies to effective, Constitutional surveillance policies.
We will discuss Bill’s efforts as described in our choice this week for Let’s Go to the Movies — Frederich Moser’s excellent documentaries A Good American and The Maze.
Bill will review current events including allegations regarding the DNC hacking, Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential campaign, and leaks during the campaign and from the White House.
When you finish listening to Bill Binney, one thing you will understand clearly is that the current US Government bulk acquisition and storage of data on all of us has nothing to do with protecting America from “bad guys.” You will also understand why the Internet of Things (IOT) is such a dangerous idea in the current system and why the cybersecurity scare may just be the next big scam.
Indeed, things are so bad that some Congressman are finally talking about pulling the plug on bulk acquisition. Rather than wait for Congress, Binney has some terrific proposals for what we can do to protect our privacy and power shift our situation.
If you want to understand why the President of the United States cannot make a phone call without excerpts or even whole transcripts showing up in the media and how to do something about it – this is one interview you do not want to miss.
Finally, if you want to be inspired by one of the most intelligent and courageous men in America – you absolutely want to listen to this interview.
This is the last week of the month – so no Money & Markets. I am headed from Hong Kong to Bangladesh today and then on to San Francisco the following week as we publish our 2nd Quarter Wrap Up and our next Money & Markets.
So post or e-mail your questions for Ask Catherine!

“If you let the [US] government into medicine, they will destroy it” ~ Dr. William T. Fitts, Jr., Professor of Surgery, in 1965, upon passage of legislation authorizing Medicare.

The United States spends $9,451 per person per year on health care as of 2015. This figure is significantly higher than the figure for any other country in the world. It’s almost 40% more than for Switzerland, the country that spends the second-most money per person.
The United States spends more than twice per person than does Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, or the United Kingdom. Despite this tsunami of money, the United States ranks thirtieth among countries in life expectancy. This rating compares to that of Japan (first), Switzerland (second), Australia (third), Italy (fourth), France (ninth), and the United Kingdom (twentieth).
Health care expenditures in the United States have risen from 7% to 17% of GNP, threatening the financial health of retirement systems and households, and contributing to greater inequality. At the same time, this explosion of costs has fueled a rising US stock market lead by health care stocks and contributed significantly to local employment and real estate markets. The harsh reality is that capital gains on stock market and real estate is also a significant source of political contributions.
As the US Congress struggles with proposals to create a system that is both fair and economic, it faces a series of special interests that make such a change difficult without a revolutionary shift in consciousness and change in the wider economy.
A US health care system that is both fair and economic will require change in the behavior of citizens and in many health-related industries, such as agriculture, pharmaceuticals, insurance, telecommunications, and media, and in such covert operations as narcotics trafficking and global spraying.
Jon Rappoport of No More Fake News joins me this week to review the challenges facing the US health system. Jon has spent decades investigating medicine, the health sciences and the health care system. His body of writings – much of it captured in his two excellent collections The Matrix Revealed and Exit From the Matrix – reflect some of the most powerful insight available.
I hope this discussion will inspire you to contribute to the shift in conciousness that will result in breakthrough change – to take charge of your health and gain the knowledge you need to successfully navigate health-related systems to enjoy both excellent physical and financial health.
In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news from Hong Kong. I just arrived in this remarkable city on Saturday after a glorious month in Australia. Please make sure to post or e-mail your questions for Ask Catherine.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the 9-part Truth About Cancer documentary by Ty Bollinger that includes many interviews of excellent physicians and health-care professionals around the world who are truly inspiring.
Talk to you Thursday!
