The Heartland

By Catherine Austin Fitts

On my drive across the country, I stopped to discuss with Dr. Joseph Farrell our 2nd Quarter Wrap UpThe Worricker Trilogy and his new book, The Third Way.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch The Worricker Trilogy – the BBC series I have discussed and written about extensively – now would be a good time to do so. I sent my DVD set to Dr. Farrell several weeks ago and he proceeded to watch it five times! I sensed that this series had an important message for Americans (and for the world) and Dr. Farrell more than confirmed my hunch.

With respect to the Anglo-American alliance, one possibility is that there is a fundamental non-alignment between 1) the need to manage risk in this relationship and 2) the hidden system of finance which Dr. Farrell often refers to. Have we reached a “boiling point” where one or the other has to come out on top?

If this is what’s going on inside the Anglo-American alliance, then we’re talking about big governance issues. These will either have to get worked out…or we are looking at difficult times for the United States. Remember that the City of London has more billionaires than America and the Crown runs the largest network of offshore banking centers in the world. Obviously, there are huge implications here.

Dr. Farrell goes on to state:

“Markets ultimately correct themselves no matter how much central control you try to place on them. This is economic reality. The real problem is: are we going to have the leadership? The American financial elite began in the early 20th century (through their network of foundations) to surround themselves with people who had the same ideology. When you surround yourselves with people who think like you do and you’re confronted with a new circumstance that doesn’t conform to your ideology, then you can’t think outside the box.

“The fact that the American leadership is now calcified because it is no longer able to entertain any ideas that conflict with its central dogmas is a very bad situation. They are not responding to reality. The Supreme Court is not responding to reality. The markets are not responding to reality.”

Please join Dr. Joseph Farrell and me for the latest in our series of “high-octane speculations” on the Solari Report this week.

I will address current market developments and geopolitics in Money & Markets.

“Everything you can imagine is real.”
~ Pablo Picasso

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on the Solari Report, Jon Rappoport delves into the subject of imagination:

“Imagination is already there in every person, as a potential. To put it in a slightly different way, imagination comes into being the moment you want it. Even more accurately, perhaps, imagination is imagining. It’s an action. When you want to take that action, you can.”

I’m one of those people who has an unquenchable thirst for Jon’s encouragement to shift my imagination into high gear. Mr Global has literally gotten a vast majority of the human race to forget the power of our imagination. If enough of us wake up and tap back into this power – watch out!

It may be that what people experience in their lives is the reality they continuously imagine. As Jon puts it, life is about the process of subconscious invention:

“I once spoke with a woman who had, for many years, struggled to win a victory in a just environmental cause. She was a veteran activist leader; and she had never won what she was seeking. She was stymied. I told her she had to imagine a new kind of strategy, and I gave her a simple writing exercise that would enable her to get outside all the familiar campaigns of the past. Within two minutes, she found what she was looking for. Which is to say, she imagined it. I wasn’t giving her knowledge or content or a system or an answer. I was showing her a way to invent something new, on her own.”

Jon’s teachings on imagination for the Solari Report now constitute a classic:

From the Book:

The architects who constructed the great buildings of Europe understood that if you built a great cathedral, it would inspire. These architectural feats lifted the minds of men out of the mud. Over the centuries, this inspiration would also lift real estate values and tax yields as it attracted talent, tradesmen, new construction and open markets.

A society’s physical infrastructure is of utmost importance. Through the ages, it has been one of the critical determinants of who lived or died, of which nations flourished or failed. While a nation’s geography is very important, leveraging geography and natural resources with infrastructure makes an enormous difference.
