• The Pope

    “Yet it must also be recognized that nuclear energy, biotechnology, information technology; knowledge of our DNA, and many other abilities, which we have acquired, have…given those with the knowledge, and especially the economic resources to use them, an impressive dominance over the whole of humanity and the entire world….In whose hands does all this power lie, or will it eventually end up? It is risky for a small part of humanity to have it.” (p.77)
    ~ Pope Francis

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    A Papal Encyclical is a letter concerning Catholic doctrine which is circulated by the Pope. This week, Pope Francis published a new Encyclical: Laudato Si’ of the Holy Father Francis – Care for Our Common Home.

    The 180+ page document sounds the alarm regarding the global degradation of living things: people, animals and our environment.

    If this document had been authored by a professor of theology, there would be much room for common ground. However, it has been written by the leader of an institution which has been the single most powerful in the Western world for the last 500 years – a period during which the central banking-warfare model has been busy harvesting our common home.

    “The European Union’s principles are democracy, solidarity, mutual respect…These principles were not based in blackmails and ultimatums, especially in these crucial times. No one has the right to put in danger these principles.”
    ~ Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    Events in Greece underscore one of the challenges that the bond market faces – predatory lenders face a day of reckoning.  It’s a good time to talk about what the turn in the bond market means to equities.

    This week on the Solari Report, I will examine how equity markets performed in the second quarter of this year.  This report will feature detailed performance charts and sector comparisons.

    As equities markets build out globally, they are becoming more place-based and place-centric. With this in mind, I will also report on the Australian and New Zealand equities markets and what I learned on my recent visit “down under.”

    In response to your questions, I will address a “key” topic for investors: portfolio risk management, including custodial risks that impact securities and precious metals.

    In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will look at Red Dog, one of Australia’s most popular films. We’ve had a lot of bad news lately – time for some heart warming inspiration!

    I hope you’ll join me on the Solari Report this week. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can learn more about the benefits of becoming one here…


    We Apologize

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    We apologize!

    You may have noticed that we have been managing repeated Denial of Service and hack attacks. They have been quite fierce this year – coming from many different places both in the United States and around the world.

    I can only conclude that we are indeed bringing you “the truth and nothing but the truth.” The long-term solution is our new website which we intend to launch this summer. We believe it will be much harder to hack. The short-term solution is to continue to do the many things our systems team is doing to make the site as invulnerable as possible.

    I would like to compliment our systems and operations team – they are doing a great job up against a syndicate which has clearly invested significant resources to defend their market share.

    You deserve the very best service – we are working hard to make sure that your service is interrupted as little as possible.  We thank you for your understanding, your suggestions and your support!

    Here is an idea if you would like to help:

    We believe that the post which triggered the latest round of attacks was my comment on the Pope’s Encyclical. So, we would be delighted if you would click on the following link, copy the content and e-mail this article far and wide. Let’s make it difficult for resource-rich institutions to censor via cybercrimes.

    Today, 1500 CEST Wednesday, 1 July 2015, WikiLeaks releases a modern journalistic holy grail: the secret Core Text for the largest ‘trade deal’ in history, the TiSA (Trade In Services Agreement), whose 52 nations together comprise two-thirds of global GDP. The negotiating parties are the United States, the 28 members of the European Union and 23 other countries, including Turkey, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Pakistan, Taiwan and Israel.

    Today’s publication happens the week before the next TiSA negotiating round that begins on Monday, 6 July. WikiLeaks is also today publishing the full agenda for next week’s negotiations, which shows that discussions will focus on Financial Services, Telecommunications and the Movement of Natural Persons.

    All this dithering over Greece is getting boring. European ministers flexing their muscles and posturing over whether they can help the Greek people of not. Why don’t we the people just sort it instead?

    The European Union is home to 503 million people, if we all just chip in a few Euro then we can get Greece sorted and hopefully get them back on track soon. Easy.

    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

    Subscribers have read and heard a lot on the Solari Report over the last two years about the coming turn in the bond market. So it is not a surprise that it is finally here. The Fed continues to jawbone about raising interest rates. However, at some point they are going to really raise them. When this happens, the divergence between those who can print dollars and those who cannot print dollars (but have borrowed quite a lot of them) will grow.

    I worked on Wall Street during a bond bear market. Most people in financial markets have only lived through one really bad patch – the bailout period. They don’t really know what a bear bond market is like. The thirty-five year bull market in bonds financed a lot of centralization and piled up trillions into the interest rate swap derivatives market. Which makes rising interest rates a whole new experience.

    Add to the unusual circumstances the significant downsizing of staff and inventory by large financial institutions after the passage of Dodd Frank. To get a sense of the tensions in the bond market, see my Solari Report, The Meaning of Negative Interest Rates with Don Coxe or my commentaries, The Race to Call the Top and A Compliment to PIMCO’s New Leadership.



    The Hidden Hand

    “The hunt is on and brother you’re the prey.”
    ~ Curtis Mayfield, New World Order

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    My guest this week, Junious Ricardo Stanton, was one of the Solari Report’s most popular when he joined me for Unpacking Divide and Conquer in December, 2014. A number of subscribers communicated how much this report helped them understand race tensions – and solutions – in the US.

    A good deal of what Junious and I discussed in that interview revolved around events in Ferguson, Missouri. Unfortunately, we did not foresee such events moving closer to home: Junious and I are both from Philadelphia, only two hours from Baltimore.

    Unbeknownst to many, racial incidents in Baltimore are a part of that city’s history:

    “Recent Baltimore protests over the police homicide of Freddie Gray were about much more than the killing of a young black man. The legacy of slavery is deep in a city many consider to be outside the South. “The Monumental City” as it was known in the 1820s was at the headwaters of American human trafficking. That traffic’s structural violence turned African American sons and daughters, wives and fathers into human products. One in seven enslaved African Americans was forced across state lines in the following decade. In Baltimore black people were jailed, sold, and shipped in the bellies of merchant vessels. Most were stolen from families by slave traders. Austin Woolfolk was a mastermind of the market.”

    What Else You Should Know About Baltimore, Time Magazine, 5-31-15

    This week, Junious and I will explore the history of corruption in our inner cities –  narcotics trafficking, mortgage fraud, enforcement and private prisons and “reality TV” media.

    Then we will look at the real motivations behind recent events in Baltimore:

    • Did authorities act to prevent this violence or was it allowed to get out of hand?
    • Who would have benefited from such events?
    • Have race tensions been exploited by these parties?
    • How does Baltimore relate to the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street and other grassroots “ops” that play such an important role in “soft revolutions?”

    Please join Junious Ricardo Stanton and me this week on the Solari Report. If you’re not a subscriber yet, you can learn more and become one here…

    In our Let’s Go to the Movies segment Junious and I review The Wire, David Simon’s remarkably honest television series set in and around Baltimore (note: strong language in this trailer):

    It’s the last week of the month, so look for my Money and Markets segment the following week!
