“While budgets can be complex, in principle accounting relies primarily on basic math. It should be feasible to track revenues flowing in and expenditures flowing out, and share this information in a format that can be understood by literate people. The federal government is once again facing a potential budget crisis. Without formally expanding the debt limit beyond the existing $20 trillion ceiling, the federal budget and the economy will experience a significant shock. These issues will come to a head in December 2017. It seems now, more than ever, a transparent and publically available accounting of the $21 trillion in unsupported adjustments would be especially timely and valuable.  ~ Dr. Mark Skidmore, from “Summary Report on “Unsupported Journal Voucher Adjustments” in the Financial Statements of the Office of the Inspector General for the Department of Defense and the Department of Housing and Urban Development*

The deep state is expensive: secret space programs, underground bases, and invisible weaponry require both an enormous investment and ongoing overhead and maintenance.

How do you finance two civilizations using the budget of just one?

Since the passage of the National Security Act in 1947, the national security infrastructure has grown dramatically, funded by a two-tier tax system.One tax is sent to the IRS every April by millions of citizens and companies.  The money is then spent without accountability – Since 1998, $21 trillion has disappeared from federal accounts. 

The other tax is extracted daily by financial fraud, narcotics trafficking and other criminal activities. These covert cash flows are combined with the profits of currency debasement, bailouts and invisible skimming by the central bank, their leading bank members and owners and other financial transaction and market-making systems. The combined resources are spent and reinvested in powerful technology, weaponry and private investment pools without accountability.

Lawlessness and the related corruption of our legal and judicial systems represent staggering costs to the overall economy – and increasingly make it difficult, if not impossible, for lawful people to compete.  This is the primary reason for growing income inequality and falling productivity.

After 9-11,  a dramatic conversion of our republic into a national security state exacerbated budgetary tensions. Exploding budgets funded electronic surveillance, manipulation and mind control of citizens both American and foreign.

Inevitably conflict arises when citizens elect new politicians to repair a legal system and economy devastated and drained by this financial harvesting, How can the deep state fund its secret cash flows if we citizens stop crime, level the playing field for small businesses and rebuild our communities and infrastructure?

This conflict is not just a confrontation in Washington. This conflict relates to “full vertical power” because the swamp extends throughout America, foreign governments and global investor and corporate networks.

Companies and employees are dependent on the purchases and contracts that flow from this financial machinery and from US military and intelligence dominance throughout the world. This dominance permits corporations to extract cheap natural resources and labor globally and enjoy the dollar status as global reserve currency. In turn, stock market investors depend on dividends and growth that flow from these companies. These dividends and capital gains fund the political and philanthropic contributions that keep the cycle going.

The underfunded status of pension and retirements systems and related healthcare is raising the tensions between financial security of the national security state and financial insecurity of the citizens. One of the goals of the financial coup d’etat was to shift capital and assets out of retirement systems to protect the sustainability and wealth of the national security state. However, many of those shifts were not legal. As pension benefits are cut, retirements delayed and life expectancy drops, more people are asking questions about where the money went.

The new federal budgets and tax reforms debated this week will also raise these same issues. Corporate revenues have exploded as a percentage of US GNP during the last two decades. However, corporate taxes have fallen as a percentage of both GNP and total IRS tax revenues. New budgets support growing national security spending with private corporations and exploitation of secret technologies. At the same time global arms sales fill corporate coffers and lower corporate taxes proposed by tax reform will support higher corporate earnings and stock repurchase programs.

Leading author, publisher and scholar Richard Dolan joins me this week to continue our discussion of the deep state and the US budget that we began this past March. (Link to Part I here)  We discuss Richard’s new TV series False Flags. How are false flags used to craft official narratives that engineer increased legal and financial power for the national security state? How are false flags being used to engineer a new shift of corporate and private capital into the United States?  Is the deep state racing to tear up the US Constitution before its hidden system of finance and its mysterious source of privilege are compromised or citizens demand accountability for $21 trillion missing from federal accounts?

For Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend an excellent interview with Bill Binney, one of the most powerful patriots fighting for integrity for our digital infrastructure and for global human rights.

This coming week, we will publish a new Special Solari Report on significant litigation efforts that Bill supports to hold the NSA accountable for violations of the US Constitution.  You can also learn more about Bill’s efforts by listening to our recent Solari Report interview with him.

This week is also a good time to help Congressman Ron Paul tell your representatives to vote no for the reauthorization of Section 702 of the FISA Amendment Act which is used to collect massive amounts of private information on American citizens.

This Thursday is Thanksgiving. There will be no Money & Markets. I will do a Money & Markets the following week instead.

If you have a question that needs answers immediately, post to subscriber comments. Otherwise e-mail or post questions for Ask Catherine and I will address on November 30th.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

This week on The Solari Report, Harry Blazer joins me to discuss gun ownership and efforts to enforce as well as compromise the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Increasingly, law-abiding citizens find themselves at a disadvantage in the balance of power relative to:

  • Scores of well-armed government agencies with surveillance, arrest and seizure powers and significant corporate and mercenary contracting capacity;
  • Criminal networks and their local gangs and snitches that enjoy the support of the politicians, black budget operatives, and banks they finance.

Gun ownership offers some protections, providing citizens with a defense in a significant number of criminal and violent confrontations.

Last week’s intervention by a former NRA gun instructor in a Texas church shooting is an important example of the role that gun owners play in protecting themselves and other people during the critical time period between the start of a crime and the arrival of law enforcement. These precious minutes often are the difference between life and death. This case also underscores why it is essential that law-abiding citizens own assault weapons.

Unfortunately, the majority of gun control proposals would strip or restrict the power of law abiding citizens, leaving them at the mercy of both criminals and a political class looking to abrogate retirement obligations and steal more assets.

As Harry Blazer says, “What is your plan?” Indeed, you need to have one. Assuming responsibility for your personal safety and the safety of family and neighbors has never been more important, particularly given the mind control technologies discussed in Control 101 and The War for Your Mind.

This week on The Solari Report, Melissa and Aaron Dykes of Truthstream Media join me to discuss their ground breaking investigations into the mind control technologies that are increasingly threatening our health, our finances and our lives.

We have posted some of the great videos they have produced on this topic over the last year: How Modern Reality is Being Manufactured, No Other Way To Say It, the Zombie Apocalypse is HereThis Creepy Patent Proves They Can Remotely Hijack Your Nervous System

There is no more important subject than mind control. If invisible forces can control your mind, you have zero chance of success. Indeed, you are no longer a sovereign individual. You are a natural resource or slave to be harvested. Consequently, understanding the war for your mind and protecting the integrity of your mind is essential for success in every aspect of of your life.

Melissa and Aaron are working on an important documentary that will provide a history of mind control technologies. I am a supporter and encourage you  to also support them via Patreon. Their efforts represent the very best of what independent media can offer – actionable intel that can literally help you save your mind and the minds of those you love.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, take a look at one of the latest from Melissa and Aaron – Most People Don’t Even Realize What’s Coming.

Last week’s Solari Report on Control 101 is excellent background for my discussion with Melissa and Aaron.  It is good to have the big picture before you do a deep dive into mind control. Here is some early feedback:

“The 3rd Quarter Wrap Up: Control 101 was your best to date. Brilliant. I’m so inspired. Thank you, thank you, thank you”

“Your presentation this week I find to be your most poignant and deeply, deeply intelligent on so many levels. My words fail me. As I’ve mentioned in an earlier note, I’ve been following your work since the day the buildings came down and, for me, your lesson this week tops everything else you have done to date in its depth and breadth of scope.”

“My head is spinning from your latest Solari Report. Control 101 and the Entrainment solari are my two favorites ever. Lots to mull over and listen to over and over. Congratulations to you and your team. In these dark times there is a crack that lets the light in. You and Solari are that crack.”

“Wow! this Control 101 is terrific. Your presentation is clear and concise. We have our work cut out for us….You are like an oasis in the vast wasteland. My deepest thanks comes with this.”

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news. Please e-mail or post your questions for Ask Catherine,

This week on the Solari Report, I will present Control 101, the theme of our 2017 3rd Quarter Wrap Up.

For many years, independent media commentators have direly predicted events that did not come to pass. The US dollar was about to collapse. The American economy was also about to collapse. Gold was headed to $5,000 per ounce. True, some pundits were simply marketing fear porn. However, many better commentators were sincere.

For the last two decades, I have been a contrarian in the group. I have said that our economy would “slow burn,” that the dollar was dangerous but dominant – not yet at the point of collapse or replacement. Although I agreed that gold was in a long-term bull market, I thought spectacular price increases were unlikely.

When I tried to explain my thinking, I hit a brick wall. My assessment had little to do with classic economics and financial markets. It had to do with my personal experience with the inner workings of our political, economic, and social control systems.

I learned a great deal about control technologies working inside the establishment. Then I added rich insight from 11 years of protracted litigation with the US federal government and three years of additional tax and compliance responsibilities. These years included significant levels of physical harassment, surveillance, smear campaign, and dirty tricks.

Financial professionals would say “I don’t want to go there.” They did not want to discuss the extent to which our current governance system operates by force both domestically and globally. That is, they did not want to discuss control methods such as fake news, smear campaigns, false flags, control files, malicious prosecution and more.

How can we achieve effective use of our time and money unless we “go there” – unless we deal with reality? The truth is that we cannot use time and money effectively unless we do so, which is why we do “go there” in the Solari Report.

My goal for our discussion of Control 101 is to ensure that you have the framework to understand the wide range of methods used to manipulate and control you, in order to immunize you to them. My goal is to help you create ways to free yourself whenever and wherever possible.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest financial and geopolitical news.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review the movies posted in your 3rd Quarter Wrap Up web presentation that best demonstrate aspects of control. Our team has created a collection of enormously insightful and entertaining selections, including many reviewed on the Solari Report. Here is the trailer from one of my favorite – the Swedish movie As It Is In Heaven. It reminds us that we can help each other break free – and the importance of music and the arts in helping us do so.
