What this means is that you need to safeguard that information now. Today. Make sure you have hard copies of important health information. Buy books. Save important information on a hard drive that isn't connected to the internet. Fitts agrees, noting: "For 15 years, I've been making sure I buy everything I need in hard copy on the assumption that everything digital would be censored — that we would need a library of gardening and all sorts of technologies and skills. One of the things I would say to our listeners is, if you don't have it in hard copy, for heaven's sakes, print it out or buy it now because you want to have a complete archive of everything you need in analog form. If you read the stories of who did well in the Depression, what you hear are stories of people in communities that had among each other all the skills they needed for survival. I often talk with people about how to start community currencies or network currencies, and what I say to them is, 'Look, if you haven't worked out the health and food, whatever you do in the currency area won't work.'
The movie about East Germany's surveillance called 'The Lives of Others'1 ... is a really powerful movie that describes what it's like to be under 24/7 surveillance, which I experienced when I was in Washington litigating with the federal government."
Catherine Austin Fitts, founder and president of the Solari Report,
Fitts was the assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) during the Reagan administration. She understands the financial system inside and out, having spent decades exposing corruption and fraud, both within the banking industry and government.
AI is a component piece of a system that's been very successful at brainwashing, propaganda and mind control ... and when you combine it with entrainment, subliminal programming, and software that creates addictions, you create this phenomenal infrastructure of things that really suck people in. Part of [AI's] power is ... access to tremendous [amounts of] data about what we're thinking, what we're doing, what we want. So it's the surveillance component in combination with the rest of those. And of course, AI just makes it turbocharged.
Money is simply a management system. Money is a control system. They're not so much interested in money as [they are] in managing the crowd. And historically, one of the most profitable businesses, and the business that makes it easy to manage the crowd, is slavery. Unfortunately, my personal experience with the folks within the Mr. Global basket, they believe in and practice slavery. And if you go back and look at why we canceled slavery the last time around, digital technology can solve those problems ... They truly believe they cannot trust the general population in a period of faster learning speeds and change to keep up and make intelligent decisions about the risk management issues they face ... What are the risk issues that keep Mr. Global up at night? What are they worried about? I believe one of the reasons they globalized was because they wanted to create the engineering and other capacity needed to go into space, because you don't want to bet the ranch on one planet. So, I think there's a real push in space for a variety of reasons, but one of them is simply diversification. They are worried about one or more geophysical risks, is my guess."
Projections for Crypto In a previous interview, Fitts surprised me with her view on cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin's creation and development are often attributed to the collective efforts of a group or individual using the name Satoshi Nakamoto, but the true identity (or identities) behind this pseudonym remains one of the most significant mysteries in the cryptocurrency world. The common understanding is that Nakamoto is the ultimate altruist and abandoned his 1 million Bitcoin for the benefit of humanity. Nic Carter is a well-known figure in the cryptocurrency community, and he doesn't buy that story and is convinced that the United States National Security Agency (NSA) is responsible for creating Bitcoin. He believes Bitcoin was written by NSA cryptographers as a monetary bioweapon
The question, then, is what will happen to Bitcoin and other crypto? Fitts weighs in: "It depends on how their rollout of complete control works ... As long as they have the ability to assert complete control and shut [crypto] down or marginalize it, it's easy for [Mr. Global] to assert control. Until then, they can continue to pull money out of precious metals and real and hard assets by encouraging retail to go into crypto. But they can also prototype lots of different technologies and methods with crypto. The brilliance of what they did with crypto is they got freedom fighters and hackers in the software world to figure everything out for them, and do it for free, as long as they just poured some money into pump and dump the thing. So, it was a very, very clever strategy. The important thing to understand, if we had a free world and a world dedicated to freedom, we would absolutely use Bitcoin and cryptos. We would want an analog and a digital system, and we would want private currencies and community currencies both. If you're looking at this and thinking about an ideal financial system, your immediate reaction is, 'Bitcoin's great. What's not to love about Bitcoin?' So my objection is not to Bitcoin. My objection is to an all-digital system because that is what affords control. And I'm constantly seeing Bitcoin potentially used to help advantage the bad guys. You see a lot of great, wonderful people being harmed with the pump-and-dumps. Every time they pump Bitcoin, I'm saying, please, please, please, if you swap into the pump, you're creating taxable liabilities. If you're a U.S. citizen, please sell some and escrow your tax money because on the dump, you're going to discover that your tax liability is greater than your entire position is valued. So please escrow taxes on the way up because otherwise, you're going to be toast. And sure enough, every time we get a dump, I hear the pain of people who didn't do that."
in summary, the existing crypto market is a prototype controlled by Mr. Global. It's not what it appears to be. Unfortunately, probably less than 1% of the population understands this, and instead ends up on the losing end
itts continues: "One of the things that was very clear once the financial crisis hit was that the debt growth model was coming to an end and the race was on to get the hard assets. In other words, you want the land. You want the precious metals. You want the water. You want the minerals ... The war is now on for the real assets ... So, you have the central bankers around the world buying gold, particularly in the BRIC nations. In 2005, Russia went on a program to completely move their reserves out of dollars and into gold. In 2008, if you looked at the list of the 100 top landowners in the United States, by 2012 their landholdings had doubled. And so there was a real push by the central banks and the big money to move steadily into real estate and precious metals. Buffet is buying railroad companies; Buffet is buying the big gas producers or energy distribution companies. And so you see this shift into hard assets. So, it's a no-brainer that you would want to interest retail in digital assets to keep them out of the market. In other words, you want them to walk away from gold and buy Bitcoin, because the last thing you want is the competition to buy up all that stuff."
An Alternate Reset Is Possible Fitts continues: "In 1991, I came out of the Bush administration, and I said, 'They're going to take digital technology and kill us all. We need another plan.' So basically, I spent the '90s prototyping how we could do a positive reset ... a wealth-building reset that would protect and preserve the middle class, which is very possible even at this late stage. I was absolutely convinced that part of getting that kind of reset going was a critical mass of people who understood that this push to centralized control was going to go to a place we couldn't afford to go. I mean, first of all, it's going to destroy us. They're trying to steal our stuff and kill us. I wrote an online book called 'Dillon Read and the Aristocracy,' about how they were targeting poor neighborhoods with the predatory lending and the pill mills and the private prison sweeps, et cetera. But I think a lot of people thought, 'Oh, that's just poor people. I'm safe.' What I'm now seeing that I have not seen until now, is a critical mass of people saying, 'You know something? My doctors are lying to me. I cannot trust them. My government is lying to me. I cannot trust them. And in fact, there is a plan to kill me.' And it relates to the food, it relates to the spray, it relates to the pesticides, it relates to the injections, it relates to the pharmaceuticals — [nothing] is trustworthy. This is the first time since 1991 that I've seen a critical mass of very capable, well-educated professional people with real skills ... coming together and saying, 'This was a mass atrocity. They're trying to kill us.' And that's a breakthrough because once you have a clear picture of the problem, then you start to use your time effectively."
