“A global financial cabal engineered a fraudulent housing and debt bubble, illegally shifted vast amounts of capital out of the US; and used ‘privatization’ as a form of piracy – a pretext to move government assets to private investors at below-market prices and then shift private liabilities back to government at no cost to the private liability holder Clearly, there was a global financial coup d’etat underway.” ~Catherine Austin Fitts

We have had several requests to provide links for summaries of what I refer to as the “missing money.”

Financial Coup d’État

This was a commentary I wrote during the bailouts to help put what was happening in a global context. We also published several compilations of the bailouts, including Bailout Mo’ Money

“Why does Goldman Sachs run your government? What’s wrong with America is that it’s run by investment bankers, mostly from the same bank. How can Americans stand for it?” ~ Taxi Cab Driver in Kuala Lumpur

By Catherine Austin Fitts

President-elect Trump has now recruited two Goldman Sachs partners and three Goldman Sachs alums as well as an attorney from Goldman’s lead law firm to work in his administration.

Goldman Sachs Alums:

Goldman Sachs Employees:

  • Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn to serve as director of the National Economic Council
  • Goldman partner Dina Powell has been selected to become a White House economic adviser.

Sullivan & Cromwell (Goldman’s lead law firm)

  • Jay Clayton, to chair the US Securities and Exchange Commission

Goldman’s stock has risen 72% since last summer. A large portion of that rise has been since the election, with Goldman being the leader pulling the Dow up in the “Trump Surge.” (See “Follow the Money: Booze Allen Hamilton vs. Goldman Sachs vs. Treasury Bonds vs. S&P 500″). Now with Goldman’s president joining the administration with a Goldman alum at Treasury and a Goldman attorney running the SEC, observers are asking an increasing number of questions regarding “how the money” will work on a Trump presidency. Cui bono?

In response to numerous questions from our subscribers and members, I asked Joseph Farrell to join me for a Special Solari Report to discuss Goldman Sachs. We cover Goldman’s historical relationships with the US government, including the black budget and covert financial system, and explore how the nature of Goldman’s ties with the new administration may relate to the policy wars raging in Washington.

“The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the world today. It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions.” ~Edward Bernays

Solari Report subscribers are familiar with Jay Dyer, proprietar of Jay’s Analysis.  Jay joined me on the Solari Report last year for a very popular interview Unpacking What Movies Tell Us About Mind Contr0l.

Jay has published a significant new review of the relationship between Hollywood, geopolitics, the CIA and the covert world told through the prism of twenty movie reviews that take you deeper than most readers are used to going. All the big names are here, including Kubrick, Spielberg, Scott and Hitchcock.

Jay describes himself as a comedian and, indeed, he is very engaging and funny. However, I would describe him as also philosopher and historian who brings a serious passion for culture, symbolism and meaning to bear on understanding what the great films of our day are communicating and why.

If you are ready to dive into the deep end of what the “fake news network” has been up to in cinema, this book is for you. If the Pizzagate scandal blows in 2017, Jay Dyer will be prepared to give us chapter and verse on how Hollywood has been telling us what has been going on all along.

“Society is built on three legs: Economics, politics and religion. These three must be mutually compatible or the society will not last long, and the dust bin of history has plenty of examples of societies that failed when division set in.”  ~Patrick M. Wood

By Catherine Austin Fitts

We sit in the middle of an invisible war. Are we going to run society by rules and force or by laws and price?

Since WWII, the shadow government has used an Orwellian combination of invasive digital technology and covert operations and finance to build a new form of centralized governance to succeed where communism failed. Patrick Wood has documented this history in Technology Rising – the Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. He calls this new form of “command and control” governance  “technocracy.”

Documenting the emergence of a complex global rules based system is not easy to do. Wood has done us a remarkable service by attempting to integrate the various systems into a comprehensive overview.  For many years I have struggled to explain to financial professionals that the leadership does not want free markets – they want to communicate information through controlled networks rather than through prices. As long as the debt growth model could grow, an infinite amount of zero cost capital could paper over a society managed by command and control – albeit with highly sophisticated information systems, analytics and artificial intelligence.
