    “Tell me a story.
    In this century, and moment, of madness, tell me a story.
    Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.
    The name of the story will be time – but you must not speak its name.
    Tell me a story of deep delight”
    ~ Robert Penn Warren

    “In a digital age, data about money is worth more than money” -Nicholas Negroponte

    By Catherine Austin Fitts

    This week on the Solari Report, I will present a live seminar called “Unpacking Your Financial Ecosystem.” I will begin at Midnight GMT, 8pm EDT, 7pm CDT, 6pm MDT, 5pm PDT, 8am HKT, 11am AEDT. My presentation will take an hour – questions will add up to another hour, for a total time of up to 2 hours.

    I will introduce steps you can take to identify and understand the local, state, corporate and foundation financial flows and assets that impact your finances and local economy. I will focus on US examples. If you are a citizen of another developed country, you should be able to extrapolate information about financial flows and assets within your own national, regional, and municipal jurisdictions.

    If you are attending live, make sure you are logged in and able to post in the comment section of this commentary. I would encourage you to post notes, comments, and questions as we proceed.

    We will post access information to our webinar URL for subscribers on Thursday morning so make sure to login and check the subscriber links. The audio, referenced links and notes will be included in the subscriber section of this commentary by late Thursday night or Friday.

    In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news. Make sure to post or send your questions to Ask Catherine.

    In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Hidden Figures about three brilliant African-American women who worked at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the 1950’s Space Race and the successful NASA effort to send John Glenn into earth orbit. It is an inspiring, entertaining cinematic depiction of the importance of meritocracy if we wish to achieve excellence, and to accomplish “the impossible.”

    We can all use a refreshing reminder of what can happen in America when we strive for greatness and when excellence and performance determine our leadership rather than criminality.

    Talk to you Thursday!


    “Justice is a big rug. When you pull it out from under one man, a lot of others fall too.” ~Dorothy Kilgallen

    Earlier this year, the New York Post reported that the Manhattan District Attorney’s office had opened an investigation into the death of Dorothy Kilgallen, who died 51 years ago while investigating the death of President John F. Kennedy.

    This new investigation was inspired by a new book by criminal attorney Mark Shaw, The Reporter Who Knew Too Much: The Mysterious Death of What’s My Line TV Star and Media Icon Dorothy Kilgallen.

    The untimely death of reporters, movie makers and authors are always worth noting. Someone interrupts the covert flows, creating liabilities for those managing events. Interrupters must be dealt with, transparency is not allowed. An assassin is sent. For a brief period of violence and grief, a death marks the unreality of our official story.

    That is why so much can be learned about what is truly going on by studying these deaths as the anomalies that give the underlying powers away.

    An extraordinary number of people were killed to cover up the conspiracy that ordered and financed the assassination of President Kennedy. Like so many of them, the story of Dorothy Kilgallen’s life and death is a reminder that many bright and brave people live among us and fight for the truth every day.

    Compliments to attorney and author Mark Shaw for making sure such an important story is not forgotten.

    Are the strange and sometimes bizarre stories about Antarctica coming to a head? And what does it have to do with trillions missing from the US government?

    By James F. Quaid

    Let’s take note of numerous stories that we have been posting at the Solari Report in recent months.


    Over the past months, there have been some interesting visitations to the South Pole. Traveling to Antarctica is not a trivial pursuit nor is it without risks and the expense is great. Many of us have been wondering why all the “A”-list boots on the ground?..


    NASA recently released some very interesting high tech images of what appear to be ancient human structures 2.3 kilometers or 1.4 miles under the ice sheet.

    In US politics, “dark money” is money given to social welfare and trade association not-for-profit groups and funneled to think tanks with a goal of influencing elections and government policies.  This is an important topic. Spending by organizations that do not disclose their donors has increased significantly and is having a powerful impact on American politics.

    In the hopes of learning more about current trends, I recently read Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right by Jane Mayer. It was a useful, but disappointing read.

    Mayer is a fine writer and her book is easy to read despite a highly complex topic. To her credit, she has dug out a great deal of important and useful information about a series of private families and their spending to change politicians in office and policies in American. However, Mayer’s framework for what is going on in America and what we can do about it is muddled. If she had an understanding of the covert side of the American economy and who and what is causing America’s social and economic woes, this would have been a more powerful book. How I wish she could have integrated the corruption and debasement of our currency and government financial and digital systems.

    Throughout the book, Mayer is depends ‘isms.”  This includes way too many words like conservatism and progressivism. This makes sorting out different groups and their goals difficult as, in my experience, no one believes in or practices the “ism” that they profess to promote.

    Franklin Sanders will join me next week for the precious metals market report. Franklin will walk us through what has happened in the gold and silver markets since the election. We will discuss the current correction and how gold and silver prices may be impacted by the Fed decision this coming week as well as by the political changes sweeping through the United States and Europe.

    Franklin and I will also address the steps we can take to enforce our US Constitution. These steps include removing legal obstacles to the circulation of gold and silver as money. Enforcing our constitution is what we need most. What do not need  is the current effort to call for a constitutional convention that is working its way through the states. Indeed, we need to aggressively lobby our state legislators to stop it.

    In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockabee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio. The documentary tells the story of Samuel “Sambo” Mockabee, the remarkable American architect who co-founded the Auburn University Rural Studio.
