You Are Stronger Than You Think You Are with Pete Kennedy Interview
“Victory is always closer than we think. The idea that it’s a million miles away is a delusion. That delusion is our only real problem.”
~ Jon Rappoport
By Catherine Austin Fitts
This week, Solari’s Food Series host, attorney Pete Kennedy, joins me for a discussion about actions we can encourage our state legislators and local officials to take to strengthen local and state economies and local food systems.
There is an urgent need for states to act to fill the vacuum created by the inability of the federal government to manage monetary and fiscal policies and operations on a sound basis. Solari Report interviews and quarterly Wrap Ups have offered many ideas that citizens can bring to state legislators, such as establishing a state bank (such as the long-standing and successful Bank of North Dakota) that can protect and cultivate strong local banks; establishing state depositories; encouraging use of precious metals and lessening regulatory constraints on the development of local currencies; building state capacity for secure telecommunications and data transmission; and revoking the corporate charters of bad actors (including corporations receiving depository business or contracts from state governments).
At the local level, we continue to beat the drum about the importance of getting to know and supporting local sheriffs.
Past Food Series interviews likewise have identified a number of ways that the grassroots and legislators, together, can strengthen local food systems—including through legislative actions that solidify food freedom and affirm the “right to food”; lessen regulatory burdens and harassment; support direct farm-to-consumer sales; and build out needed local infrastructure such as slaughterhouses and commercial kitchens. Keeping the pressure up in these and other areas is more necessary than ever.
Because of the importance of this topic, we will be making this interview public and encourage everyone to send it to their state legislators. Please join me for what promises to be a rich yet practical conversation.
Talk to you Thursday!
