“France always had this balanced position that in so many conflicts was the voice of peace. I intend to maintain that. De Gaulle was pleading for a multipolar world.” ~ Marine Le Pen

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on the Solari Report,  The Saker will join me for his quarterly update on the shift to a multipolar world.

We will discuss the recent Duma elections in Russia as well as current developments in Syria and the implications for global geopolitics.

In his quarterly report in June, Saker described the policies likely in a Clinton presidency and the risks of war. In this report, at my request, he will review his top 10 recommendations for a Trump presidency.

We also celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments of the 9/11 Truth movement, as described in Saker’s article published on the 9/11 anniversary.

Throughout this fascinating interview, Saker synthesizes these global developments into several significant insights.

This is the last week of the month – so no Money & Markets. If you have not listened yet, I recommend last week’s Money & Markets.  I issued a warning that the Presidential campaign is a distraction from serious political and financial developments underway. I am concerned that the “slow burn” is growing tired. Institutional and structural changes are quietly underway that many people may experience as a “controlled demolition” in the first two years of a new administration. Signs of “cut and run” by serious players are growing. It is critical that US voters focus on state and local elections and referendums designed to compromise the US Constitution.

Post and e-mail your questions for Ask Catherine and I will address in the subscriber input area or in Money & Markets the following week.

Have a wonderful week!

“Being a spiritual warrior these days means pushing the media far enough away so you can think.” ~Elana Freeland, Sub Rosa America and the Fall of the New Atlantis

By Catherine Austin Fitts

I stopped to see Dr. Farrell on my way to California. We spoke at length about “Productivity, Prosperity & the Popsicle Index,” the theme in our 2nd Quarter Wrap Up. I was inspired by his insights and asked him to join me on the Solari Report to discuss why productivity growth is so important to you and me.

Given the explosion of new missing money from the federal government, continued financial fraud from big banks and the push to subvert the US Constitution with a constitutional convention, we can expect an acceleration of major structural shifts. Some worry about economic collapse. However, recent events look a lot more like controlled demolition and preparation for war.

I now refer to the US Presidential campaign as “Monica Lewinsky II.” Monica Lewinsky I was the media “shriek-o-meter” that distracted during the first year of financial coup d’etat with trillions in government assets disappearing from federal agency accounts starting in October 1997. With the DOD Inspector General announcing that $6.5 trillion is missing from DOD in fiscal 2015 alone, we need to keep our eye on the ball:  “Where is the money and how to do we get it back?”

The importance has never been greater of (i) seeing what is real  (including what is draining our productivity) and (ii) building stronger leadership and individual and local resiliency.

We will publish our interview with Dr. Farrell here on Thursday, September 29.

We also touch on our coming launch party in Tulsa, October 15, for the Grand Virtual Pipe Organ Crowdfund to purchase a virtual pipe organ for Joseph.  We will join 35 supporters for wine, dinner and a celebration of friendship and music.  You can buy tickets here. Stay tuned for more on the crowdfund when we launch on October 15.

“We must emerge good leadership going forward. If our leadership fails us, war, organized crime and lawlessness will make our choices for us. Who you choose to be, to support or to shun in your daily life will decide our future.” ~ Catherine Austin Fitts, 2nd Quarter 2016 Wrap Up

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week on the Solari Report, I will walk you through the opportunities, risks and “who’s who” of rebuilding a local economy.

As described in the 2nd Quarter 2016 Wrap Up, one of the essential steps in increasing productivity growth and prosperity is to realign living systems with financial systems. This realignment means decentralizing our economy – rebuilding one element and one place at a time. This task involves rebuilding family wealth and improving productivity growth in the G-7 nations, particularly as it relates to government budgets, health care, and education.

Rebuilding local economies has been a regular topic on the Solari Report. We will publish my outline with a collection of links to the best Solari Reports, audio seminars and articles over the last decade.

In America, rebuilding our economy will require broad-based leadership and teamwork.  I strongly encourage US subscribers to invest time between now and November in following their state and local elections. Now is your opportunity to work with friends, family and neighbors to support the leadership essential to helping us to rebuild our local economies.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news. I issue a serious warning about what the patterns of current financial fraud mean about what could happen after the election.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Sully, Clint Eastwood’s new movie about pilot Chesley Sullenberger, the US Airways captain who successful executed an emergency landing in the Hudson River in New York City on January 15, 2009 after a flock of geese had struck and disabled the aircraft engines soon after takeoff. All of the 155 passengers and crew aboard survived, saved by another extraordinary New York volunteer and NYPD rescue effort described in the documentary Miracle of the Hudson Plane Crash.

Talk to you Thursday!

 “Agriculture is the most healthful, most useful and most noble employment of man.” ~ George Washington

By Catherine Austin Fitts

This week, Harry Blazer interviews David Andrews, the executive director of the Michael Fields Institute in East Troy, Wisconsin.

Michael Fields was founded by my good friends Christopher and Martina Mann to promote biodynamic agriculture in the United States through education and research. Biodynamic agriculture is an approach first developed in central Europe in the early 20th century as a result of Rudolf Steiner‘s Agriculture Course.

David Andrews is a renaissance man of agriculture. After running his family farm in Iowa, he traveled and worked in Eastern Europe as Global Programs Specialist with Iowa State University Extension. He has experience managing farming operations in Romania, the Philippines, Africa and the Middle East. He was recruited by Michael Fields Institute to help build bridges between the Institute and its biodynamic farming community and organic and conventional farmers and to contribute to the inspiration and education of a new generation of farmers. Now in his last year at Michael Fields, David will be returning to Iowa at the end of this year.

David is a farmer who understands what it takes to grow both food and farmers, having worked with conventional, organic and biodynamic farmers in numerous cultures and ecologies. In this fascinating interview, David offers his predictions for the future of biodynamic and organic farming and the future of food.

The interview will be posted here for subscribers on Tuesday, September 20.
